Gaara_I really don't know.00:00
wildbattonytraductor: listen what they have said ~ your issue is you are behind NAT ~ you have to setup port forwarding /DMZ to get pass it ~ just go to or or  , which ever it works.00:01

Gaara_I'm not too sure, whether it will work.00:03
dorkGaara_: webcams working on linux are a thing of the last 5 years, it's going to come down to you researching it since the webcam is vendor unique, the positive side is there is most likely more people who have had this same problem00:03
Gaara_I'm about to try it :300:03
dorkGaara_: start with a lspci and find out what kind of webcam it is so you can research it00:03

innergalaxyI just upgraded to 11.04, and am having a problem with VirtualBox.  It reports that I am not in the vboxuser group.  I have verified that I am - however, when using either the 'groups' or 'id' command by itself, it shows I'm not in the group - but, when I use those commands with my name, it shows I am in that group.  Also 'whoami' shows I am logged in under my name.  I'm not sure what to do at this point.00:06
pfifoGaara_, call me @ pfifo_fast we can test each others cams00:06
vltinnergalaxy: You sometimes have to relogin to apply group changes.00:07
jieryngreetings :) i am wanting to have nearly all windows maximized by default .. how can i achieve this? using pretty much stock ubuntu 11.0400:07

dorkGaara_: it's an environmental veriable, but you can make a quick bash script if you like00:09
tonytraductorok, now this is weird....its not giving me portforwarding, perse, but gives me access to an interface to allow certain " applications"  through (including ssh).00:09

spacebug-tonytraductor: can you see something about DMZ ?00:09
dorktonytraductor: look for something called DMZ00:09
innergalaxyspacebug:  using 'id' does not show the vboxuser group, however, 'id <username>' does show the group.  'whoami' shows the same exact username as <username>.00:09
dorktonytraductor: either DMZ or NAT00:09
tonytraductorI must choose which computer inside the network to assign it to (not port interface, just choose which mahine).  It gives me 192.,168.1.66,  the internal IP on the only machine here, this one, is

guvnoryou needed to give him a little education00:16
tonytraductorthis interface says NOTHING about port forwarding.  My linksys has PORT FORWARDING, which makes sense...this thing is completely idiotic.00:16
spacebug-tonytraductor: do you see anything about DMZ then?00:16
spacebug-ok good00:17
wildbattonytradustor Application services?00:17
spacebug-if you assing DMZ to the computer with the ssh-server, it will work00:17
dorktonytraductor: you need to either look for something called NAT, port forwarding, or DMZ, they are all the same, forward data from the wan interface to either port 22 on the local ip or DMZ it which is a 1:1 nat which will forward all data to the wan interface to your mom's ubuntu box00:17
spacebug-that makes all connections to the modem/router go to that computer you assigned it to00:17
tonytraductorthere is a place to p" open the firewall"  to allow " applications"  through (ssh is listed in " application" , and it says "Choose the computer that will host applications through the firewall:"  lists 2 ip addresses, ne\ither of which is this machine00:17
dorktonytraductor: and if you don't give your mom's computer a static local ip address your work will be frivolous00:18

dorki personally hate the acronym DMZ since it's convoluting to anyone who actually works with real DMZ's00:20
spacebug-zelo: ok00:20
dorki guess dmz is easier than 1:1 nat00:20
tonytraductorscreenshot http://baldwinsoftware.com/attcrap1.jpg00:20
guvnordork, screened subnet is a more proper term00:21
dorkguvnor: nat > *00:21

guvnortonytraductor, just tell us the exact model00:22
guvnorI'll be your google proxy00:23
tonytraductoris there a way to do this by ssh into the router and edit config instead of using that absolutely inane pedantic moronic webpage interaface?00:23
dorkah yes ubuntu, holding hands since 200300:23
tonytraductorthere' s nothing important on this machine. it[' s just my moms00:23
guvnortonytraductor, tell us the model00:23
dorktonytraductor: yes via remote management, look for remote management optionss, not through ssh or telnet, but through web00:23
dorkor tell us the model00:23
tonytraductorI see nothing about remote management00:24
guvnoror not00:24
wildbatso teamviewer then ;p00:24
dorkno kidding00:24
dorkbut that wouldn't work because he can't forward ports00:25
tonytraductordid you look at the screenshot I posted?00:25
guvnorwhy the secrecy about the model of router?00:25
dorktonytraductor: i did, 2wire's interface is stupid and non intuitive, what is the model of the modem/router00:25
guvnorall your problems would be solved in a google00:25
tonytraductorI can' t figure out the manufacturer. says Empire on the bottom, if I touch the piece of crap, the connection dies...00:25
dorklook on the belly of the router00:25
tonytraductorif I touch it, I will lose connection00:26
dorkit's a risk you have to take sir00:26

dorkth0r: easy is relative00:30
dorki work with cisco and routeros mostly but having someone navigate who isn't qualified over irc is a different story00:30

Zzzzzi want manually edit to /etc/shadow for changing password of root and any other user, how can i do this ?00:33
tonytraductornothing about remote mgmt either.00:33
guvnortonytraductor, you want on PC to have inbound traffic routed to it? Is that what you are going for?00:33
spacebug-tonytraductor: is it the same interface as in the page guvnor gave you?00:33
wildbatden, you should see AP  in the list , just click it and ~ input PSK if any  that's all00:33
guvnorbecause it looks pretty simple00:33
tonytraductoryes, I want to be able to ssh IN to this machine (sshd running, comp listening on port 22, modem/router not forwarding )00:33

guvnorif you can't figure it out from that page, I don't think anyone here could explain it to you00:34
tonytraductorit is very similar yes, to that page, this IS SBC./ATT00:35
wildbatden, the password Key ~ used to access the wifi network00:35

pfifoZzzzz, yes00:35
guvnorZzzzz, md5sum00:35
denwildbat, ok, thanks00:35
Zzzzzguvnor: md5sum is equal to that shadow file hash value ? so its means # md5sum newpassword00:36
Zzzzzthast it ?00:36
tonytraductorwhen I get to the edit firewall setting, to choose a computer to forward an " application"  THIS machine is not listed. it listed and, the IP on this machine (per ifconfig) is
pfifoZzzzz, no00:36
Zzzzzpfifo: md5sum ?00:36
tonytraductorso that confuses me00:36
guvnorZzzzz, hmm I think I misunderstood what you were asking00:36
pfifoZzzzz, /etc/shadow uses DES, specifically the crypt() function00:37
dorktonytraductor: you should be able to manually specify it00:37
Zzzzzshadow file, i hav one shadow file of another server, i want to just replace its encrypted passwords so want to know that which tool i can use for creating that hash or encrypted values ?00:37
guvnoryes, I did misunderstand. Well, you did00:37
dorktonytraductor: don't worry about the computers listed, find the area that allows you to manually specify the information00:37
tonytraductorno, it offers me two options in a pulldown menu, not entry where I can manually set it00:37
Zzzzzpfifo: then what should i do ?00:37
pfifoZzzzz, I would write my own program that uses crypt()... I dont know a ready made tool for this, possibly 'passwd'00:38
dorktonytraductor: did you find remote management? it's under firewall apparently00:38
kellnolaok, damn the dist upgrade to natty was awful00:38
kellnolahad to re-do with the cd00:38

guvnordoesn't htpasswd produce DES hashes?00:39
Zzzzzpfifo: if i will go in another ubuntu 10.10 and then type passwd username and then go in that diff shadow file and then copy it and paste in that another shadow file will it work ?00:39
guvnorI'm pretty sure it does00:39

spacebug-wait you wanted 443, didnt you?00:40
Zzzzzpfifo: did you make your own tool for this task ? making encrypted ?00:40
pfifoZzzzz, what is the real goal here? normally you use passwd to set passwords, why dosent this work for you?00:40
KM0201kellnola: really? you're lucky00:40
dorktonytraductor: change your sshd_Config back to 22 from 44300:40

lost_soulEvening everyone, kind of a strange question.  Anyone have any idea why a secondary network card (hardwire) would stop showing up.  I put a second nic card in the other day and configured it.  When I was done for the evening I turned the machine off and ever since then the network card doesn't show using either dmesg or lspci.  Thinking possibly (but unlikely) it was an issue witht the card I replaced it and even the replacement card 00:42
dorkdist-upgrades aren't taboo00:42

lost_soulsorry for the length of question, trying to give as much info as I have.00:42
b0nghitteri wish there were PPA repos for 11.04 :[00:42
pfifoguvnor, yes he wants to manually change a passwd, but if you can edit /etc/shadow, then you can simple run passwd as root so, the queestion becomes why?00:42
dorkunless it's some fucked up platform like powerpc but i don't think you can upgrade beyond maverick on the non common plats00:42
guvnorlost_soul, no dmesg means it isn't being detected. Do you have a live distro around?00:42
spacebug-lost_soul: A module (driver) for the nic that is not loaded at boot time?00:43
guvnorpfifo, exactly00:43
kellnolaKM0201, clean installs are the best way anyway, I missed a lot of new things by dist-upgrading00:43
dorkkellnola: i disagree00:43
tonytraductorbut there is only one machine connected to this modem...thsi is the part thats give me a problem nopw00:43

guvnorlost_soul, see if that detects it00:43
tonytraductorI set up another " application"  to look on ports 21 to 23, but it still wants me to tell the router which machine, and it lists two, and neither of them are thjis one00:43
tonytraductorthis thing is all kinds of stupid00:44
ugly_duckany fix for upowerd using cpu?00:44
kellnolaKM0201, because of unity, I don't care for it and gnome 2 is about end of lifed00:44
lost_soulspacebug-: yea, not showing anywhere now..  But it did detect it fine first day, never experienced this before.00:44
guvnorlost_soul, at least that way you help eliminate it being an OS/software problem00:44

Kuwangervlt: Ideally, it should ignore the file's permission/ownership/time and use the permission/ownership/time listed elsewhere or there should be a mechanism to change the permission/ownership/time of an extant tar.00:50
CarbonChauvinistvlt: problem is, the linux install i had previously did not have grub2, and is a different distro00:50
guvnortonytraductor, either the router gives the PC an address (dhcp) or you create a static address on the PC and the router accepts that00:50
dawnno is brasil00:50
soscrewedi made a pretty bonehead misstake, i was blindly following some instructions on how to install gentoo when i realized i formated the wrong device per its instructions, i formated 4 years worth of books and all sorts of work on a 1 TB.. i am reading about photorec and some other thing, some taskdisk or whatever it's called.. does anyone have any experience with retrieving info from a formated external usb drive00:50
tonytraductorI did find something about remote management, finally, and it' s turned on00:50
CarbonChauvinistvlt: still just run grub-install, even with those caveats?00:50

soscrewedi apologize for what may not be ubuntu related information but i'm desperate00:51
tonytraductoroh, okay. the thing is, the router assigned it one, and it sees that, it is the nly IP address in the devices list but when I tell it to open for certain applications, it doesn' t list it, it lists 2 others .64 and .66, no
billy2007hi if i use wine to run a program for my i-phone will it detect it00:51
tonytraductorso it makes no sense00:51

Muellineohashi: for file in *.jpg; do echo $file;done. But read on bash scripting fist00:52
tonytraductorone one page of this router interface, it recognizes that there is only one machine connected to it, at, but when it comes to opening ports to allow applications access, it gives me two options for devices to point them to, and neither are this machine00:52

Muellialex__: you could give transmageddona  try00:52
b0nghitteralex__: vlc maybe00:53
alex__handbrake wont work for my certain video dee2700:53
DILso your moms machine is not connect to the router00:53
lost_soulguvnor: unfortunately I didn't have an ubuntu live disc that is easy to test with.  Using a pclos live disc however both interfaces show up fine.  Reason I say it isn't easy to test with a ubuntu live disc is that system actually has xbmc live which is based on ubuntu 10.04 LTS, it isn't friendly for being able to test things quickly like that.00:53
JokesOnYou77IPtables?  I'm acutally wondering if I could just pick up DD-WRT for x86 or one of the other internet gateway distros from distro watch and put it on my old Pentium 4 machine to speed up my LAN transfer speed and decrease latency00:53
tonytraductoryes, the machine is connected to the router00:53
dee27than try transmageddon00:53
neohashinice.. thanks Kuwanger00:53
alex__where can i get transmageddon?00:53
usr13tonytraductor: What is it you are trying to do exactly?00:54
vltKuwanger: Sounds like some scripting is needed.  "tar -tv" lists owner, permissions and mtime (just minutes, hmmm).00:54
Muellialex__: http://lmgtfy.com/?q=transmageddon00:54
Zzzzzpfifo: i had two ubuntu 10.10 , which roots and normal user's password were forgotten, now i cant recover pass fro startup recovery mode, if lilo were installed still it was getting any key, i had ony kvm, i had run ubunt live cd and then create user with pass and went in shadow file of that live cd os and then paste in my geniune server's shadow file and paste it there and on reboot it start working00:54
DILwhat are the 2 devices that is being seen00:54
Kuwangervlt: Yes, and I don't know if that's creation, modification, or access time and how much precision is stored.00:54
pfifoZzzzz, boot a livecd and then mount the root filesystem, then chroot into the filesystem and run passwd00:55
alex__should i use VLC instead?00:55
alex__if so do i just google VLC?00:55
Kuwangervlt: If only I could just take an extant tar and replace files in-place. :/00:55
billy2007hi if i use wine to run a program for my i-phone will it detect it00:55
Gryllidabilly2007: What do you mean by `detect`?00:56
usr13alex__: If you are wanting to use VLC and need to install it, just use the package manager.00:56
alex__alright thanks00:56
billy2007that my phones connected to the pc?00:56
Muellibilly2007: probably not. Better go with KVM or VirtualBox.00:56
dee27aint gunna detect it00:56
alex__can VLC convert files?00:57
pfifoMuelli, kvm and vbox arent going todo any better than wine00:57
b0nghitteryes, it uses ffmpeg for alot of it00:57
b0nghitteralex__: ^00:57
Muellipfifo: O_o they surely will reg. USB connectivity00:57
alex__so it will be able to turn a .avi into a .mp4?00:57
pfifoMuelli, nope00:57
b0nghitteralex__: yes, h264 if you want also00:58
billy2007Muelli, is kvm just for ubuntu images?00:58
Muellibilly2007: no.00:58
alex__which is for ipods right?00:58
b0nghitteralex__: #videolan00:58
Muellipfifo: so how do you load your proprietary iphone or whatever driver into Linux with Wine?00:58
tonytraductorlook at this screenshot: http://blinguas.homelinux.net/more/moattcrap.jpg00:58
dee27for different type00:58
dee27hd blue-ray00:58
pfifoMuelli, afaik you dont, any iphone support is using reverse engineered stuff00:59
tonytraductorthen look at ifconfig: http://blinguas.homelinux.net/pnopaste/?1800:59
sharedee27: you want to play bluray?00:59
tonytraductorthis machine is
shareinstall lxBDplayer00:59
tonytraductornot listed in the interface in the screenshot. (although, from the router front page it IS, and is the onlymachine listed)00:59
tonytraductornot making sense.  the problem is this BS router01:00
shareyes tonytraductor01:00
sharetonytraductor: what's your problem01:00
tonytraductorcan' t open port to allow ssh to this machine01:00
billy2007pfifo, ive tried a range of jailbreaking tools i cant seem to get any to work on linux :( is there any ubuntu jailbreaking software01:00
tdignanah, I am freaking out ubuntu01:00
ikoniabilly2007: no, there is not01:00
b0nghitteralex__: h264 is a codec for mainly for HD .mp4/.f4v... vlc is just a good app for converting to many types of codecs. it's what i use01:00
tdignanwhy is there no progress bar when I resize a partition with your installer?01:00
usr13tonytraductor: So you are asking us how to configure a router?01:00
sharetonytraductor: login into the router01:01
alex__b0nghitter, can i use arista transcoder instead?01:01
pfifo!iphone | billy2007 this is the only stuff I know of01:01
ubottubilly2007 this is the only stuff I know of: For information on how to sync and add tracks to your iPod, see the guide at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/IPodHowto - For the iPhone and the iPod Touch, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/PortableDevices/iPhone - See !RockBox for information on liberating your iPod01:01

tonytraductorI am in the router01:01
usr13share: He is apparently already logged into the router, but what does it have to do with Ubuntu?01:01
bazhangalex__, just use handbrake for that01:02
bazhang!handbrake | alex__01:02
ubottualex__: handbrake is a an open-source, GPL-licensed, multiplatform, multithreaded video transcoder, available for MacOS X, Linux and Windows. - http://handbrake.fr01:02
tonytraductorthis machine is runnign ubuntu, and I need to be able to admin it remotely over ssh01:02
DILhe needs to port forward to poert 2201:02
sharetonytraductor: now add 22 tcp to
Muellipfifo: I don't think Wine ships any reverse engineered USB drivers. Reading http://wiki.winehq.org/USB makes me indeed think that using KVM or VirtualBox is a lot easier to pass USB to a Window application than trying Wine.01:02
alex__bazhang, for some reason, one of the episodes in this tv show,make handbrake crash01:02
bazhangalex__, handbrake has special settings specifically for the ipod01:02
sharetonytraductor: it has nothing to do with ubuntu01:02
alex__like handbrake doesnt want to scan it or something01:02
ikoniaalex__: handbreak has it's own support channel that is very good01:02
tonytraductorwell there' s the problem the interface on this router makes no sense. can' t figure out how to oopen 22 to this machine01:02
pfifoMuelli, kvm/qemu dosent support USB at all, and vbox only supports a few different devices01:03
tonytraductorI can do it on my linksys router at home, no problem. this ATT Gateway router is making no sense, that' s the problem01:03
bazhangalex__, then its corrupt. not handbrake problem01:03
Muellipfifo: get your facts straight. QEmu supports USB for ages.01:03
ikoniatonytraductor: the router should have support resources, forum/email/irc etc, try them01:03
DILthe existing ip are to two other computers?01:03
tonytraductoryou know, this is why I use debian.  their channl isn01:03
tdignanas a serious question, I am resizing a partition with the ubuntu installer, and there is no progress bar. Just an animated cursor01:03
tonytraductorthe debian channel is helpful01:03
sharetonytraductor: find the model of your router and do a search on router model + port forward01:03
tdignanwhat is up with this?01:03
tdignanam I in trouble?01:03
pfifoMuelli, it better not, i switched to vbox cause of that issue01:04
ikoniatonytraductor: are you using ubuntu or debian ?01:04
tdignanguys stop feeding the troll01:04
alex__bazhang, it isnt corrupt arista transcoder fixed my problem :D01:04
tdignanhe's been at this for a good 2 hours or more01:04
shareikonia: it doesnt matter he wants to port forward.. it's in the router not linux distro01:04
alex__tdignan, what troll?01:04
illmortalWas there a new update that caused dual display to stop working?01:04
ikoniashare: I fully agree01:04
tdignanalex__: if you don't know, then, I'm sorry.01:04
illmortalI'm on Ubuntu 11.04.. restarted my PC and now can only get one display to work.01:04
usr13tonytraductor: You've shown us a screenshot of a configuration wizard page for a router. I think you need to refer to the router's user manual, (not us).01:05
tdignanfinally, I was scared there.01:05
tonytraductorI look at information on the router, and how to open the port, the problem is, the router doesn' t have this machine in the list of machines to forward ports to, which is making no sense, thus the screnshot and the ifconfig output iI sent to the channel01:05
tdignanthe partition resizer needs a progress bar.01:05
bazhangportforward.com tonytraductor01:05
ikoniatonytraductor: best thing to do is contact the support resource for the router, and they can walk you through it, over email/irc/forum whatever01:05
bazhangtonytraductor, lose the caps01:06
tdignantonytraductor: you might want to ask a psychiatrist about this01:06
tonytraductoryes portforward.com HERE: http://portforward.com/english/routers/port_forwarding/2wire/2701HG-B/Limewire.htm01:06
bazhangtdignan, uncalled for.01:06
tonytraductorthis shows the interface for this router01:06
usr13tonytraductor: Are you able to ping the router's IP from the Ubuntu machine?01:06
bazhangtonytraductor, but its not an ubuntu issue01:06
tonytraductorthe problem is the router is not offering THIS machine to forward stuff too01:06
ikoniatonytraductor: please stop asking about your router,01:06
pfifoMuelli, damn it, your right, well thats going to come in handy01:06
edbianI have an external hdd with a button on the front.  What the heck does this button do?  It has what looks like a file icon (little piece of paper) next to it.01:07
Muellipfifo: sure I am ;-) I developed some USB stuff in QEmu ;-)01:07
DouggleHi having some wbui issues getting the error No root file system is defined where am i supposed to define this in the grub.cfg or?01:07
ikoniaedbian: you know the deal, that's not an ubuntu thing01:07
lost_soulI found an ubuntu 10.04 live cd and that also shows both network interfaces fine btw guys, so it isn't a hardware issue01:07

spacebug-lost_soul: same kernel version on the live cd as the installed os?01:09
b0nghitteri'm trying to follow https://help.ubuntu.com/community/FreeNX on ubuntu server 11.04, but there is no PPA repo for 11.04... can i get around this somehow without any problems?01:09
illmortalanyone know if there was a recent update with 11.04 that caused dual displays to stop working (with NVIDIA drivers)?01:09
Muelliillmortal: try without the proprietary drivers01:10
illmortaleh.. not sure how to do that...01:10
lost_soulspacebug-: I highly doubt the kernel versions are the same.  But still different kernel versions wouldn't explain why it worked fine the first day and then just stopped I don't think.01:10
tdignanHow do I select primary/logical in the ubuntu installer's partition editor?01:11
usr13lost_soul: Have you lost the use of one of your NICs?01:11

lost_soulusr13: yes I have01:13
usr13lost_soul: ifconfig eth0 ; ifconfig eth101:13
illmortalWell here's the interesting part.. I clicked on, "additional drivers" under Administrator... and it reads, "This dirver is activated but not currently in use"01:13
newbletHi, I had a question and was wondering if someone could help01:13
illmortalI think that's the issue Muelli01:13
Muelli!ask | newblet01:13
ubottunewblet: Please don't ask to ask a question, simply ask the question (all on ONE line and in the channel, so that others can read and follow it easily). If anyone knows the answer they will most likely reply. :-)01:13
lost_soulusr13: one moment, it's rebooting.  I had it booted into a live cd.01:13
usr13lost_soul: Is it eth1 or eth0 that you have lost?01:14
lost_soulusr13: eth101:14
Muelliillmortal: well. If it doesn't work with the free drivers, I'd file a bug.01:14
KM0201tdignan: you have to do manual partitioning to do that...01:14
usr13lost_soul: Are they both ethernet?01:14
Muelliillmortal: but have you check gnome-display-properties and selected a dual head setup?01:14
lost_soulusr13: yes01:14
newbletalright, well I am running Ubuntu 10.10 on an HP DM1Z (Which has many problems out of the box with ubuntu) and I have this AMD unsupported Hardware wtaermark on the bottom right of my screen, that I was wondering how do I remove it01:14
usr13lost_soul: Ok, well issue the above command and see what it says.01:15
illmortalwhere's gnome-display-properties, muelli?01:15
newbletit appeared here once I installed the additional drivers01:15
Pard_I'm having a problem installing Twin. I got it installed via aptitude (I think) but it doesn't appear anywhere. I also tried compiling it myself but it won't get past the make. Anyone have luck installing Twin on Natty?01:15
KM0201newblet: never heard of that01:15
truepurpleAn AV has found what it calls infected files on ubuntu, could they be real, but innert?01:15
tdignanKM0201: I selected manual partitioning. Are you saying I have to use fdisk/cfdisk?01:15
MuelliPard_: what's the exact error message? It's probably best if you pastebin the output of "make"01:16
newbletI looked it up on google, it seams to be a somewhat popular issue, and the weird thing is I cant capture it in a screen shot01:16
newbletit doesnt show up in it01:16
tdignanWell, I did not see the option. Where is it?01:16
KM0201if you selected manual partitioning, then once you assign your partitions, you'll be able to set them as logical/primary, etc01:16
Pard_Muelli: 10-4!01:16
MuelliPard_: but if you installed it, you can search for the package name, i.e. 'apt-cache search Twin' and then do a dpkg --listfiles $packagename01:16

Pard_That's weird. Seems like ./configure isn't working because make isn't finding anything to make.01:19
tdignanKM0201: the only options the installer gives me are "install alongside windows 7, replace windows 7 with ubuntu, and 'Something else'" of which I chose, something else.01:19
KM0201tdignan: right, thats the manual partition tool01:19
tdignanI was not ever given an option to choose logical/primary, and I have sda1,sda2, and sda3 created. That leaves room for one more, sda4, right?01:19
tdignanor am I mistaken01:19
tdignanis sda4 gone when you use the logical ones/01:20

rwwGreta2: Your version of Ubuntu stopped receiving security updates and support in May. This was publicized when Ubuntu 8.04 was released and when it went End of Life. It is not feasible for our security and support teams to continue supporting old versions of Ubuntu indefinately.01:38
Burzmalirww: Do you happen to know it the upstream cares about what is posted on our side?01:38
xanguaGreta2: it supports the Supported versions...01:38
GryllidaGreta2: Right01:38
spacebug-xrdodrx:  the "medium error" seems no good :(01:38
rwwBurzmali: Depends on the upstream. In a perfect world, the BugSquad forwards bugs to upstream if necessary.01:38
Greta2Nobgul-bnc: I am looking to understand what my error message means with regards to my partitioning process.01:39
xrdodrxspacebug-, so it's toast then?01:39
GryllidaGreta2: However if it's not version-specific, I suppose people would help01:39
xrdodrxReturn it?01:39
Nobgul-bncGreta2, Can you pastebin the error I will look, not sure I can help but we shall see01:39
Greta2rww, xangua and Gryllida, thank you for all of your input, but at this moment I find that your help is very constrained.01:39
xrdodrxI don't see how this could happen :(01:40
cedriczgxrdodrx, well from the dmesg error logs it seams your external HD has some issues after your power problems01:40
xrdodrxit was connected to a surge protector01:40
xrdodrxand formatted as ext401:40
cedriczgxrdodrx, you might need to run a scan for the disk. But not sure how if you even are not being able to connect to it...01:40
Greta2Nobgul-bnc: thank you for making yourself available to help me. I have to make a screenshot, as my linux system is on another machine entirely. Be right back! :)01:40
xrdodrxcedriczg, it appears in /dev01:40
Nobgul-bncGreta2, ok. No problem01:40
xrdodrxCouldn't I use fsck?01:41
spacebug-why not01:41
xrdodrxspacebug-, I'm not sure about the command :(01:41
xrdodrxI was just reading about that online ;)01:41

spacebug-xrdodrx: can't remember really what is should say but not just pause and no text01:43
rwwGreta2: If you want to use a system that has unpatched security vulnerabilities and is not supported by its creators, that's your problem. Please don't bring it into #ubuntu and make it ours ;(01:43
xrdodrxspacebug-, that's what it did...just paused01:44
spacebug-xrdodrx: probably because it cannot access the device01:44
xrdodrxspacebug-, the funny thing is that the access light is blinking01:44
xrdodrxa lot01:44
spacebug-hum ok01:45
xrdodrxspacebug-, should I kill it?01:46
spacebug-if it is a disk inside a box, you might be able to get the disk out and put it in a computer and get the data01:46
spacebug-xrdodrx: hum maybe01:46
xrdodrxit gave an error: fsck.ext2: Attempt to read block from filesystem resulted in short read while trying to open /dev/sdc101:46
xrdodrxCould this be a zero-length partition?01:46

Jordan_Uxrdodrx: Can you pastebin the output of "sudo fdisk -lu"?01:48
xrdodrxJordan_U, yes, one moment please01:48

Jordan_Uxrdodrx: It looks like the partition is much smaller than the disk it's contained on, and possibly smaller than the filesystem (which would be consistent with the error message from fsck). Do you have any idea why the partition would be so small compared to the capacity of the disk?01:56

Jordan_Uxrdodrx: Can you pastebin the output of "sudo tune2fs -l /dev/sdc1"?02:02

Shaba1I was in the channel about 10 minutes ago and xchat/ubuntu/wubi just froze. I had to power off an power back on02:56
Kuwangernull: The X server queries the LCD monitor, I think, then tries to validate which resolutions are sensible.  If you look at /var/log/Xorg.0.log, you're likely to see mention of many resolutions reported as invalid.02:57

HyperkillAnyone else think that Unity is a POS?03:12
DriversFixedhyperkill:  It needs a ton of work, but it's a step forward imo03:12
bazhangHyperkill, thats not  a support question03:12
Pierrick584uh, what is POS?03:12
xrdodrxHyperkill, I'm sure some people do, but no one is forcing you to use it03:12
maxxistpoint of sale?03:12
rwwHyperkill: #ubuntu is for actual support questions. Try #ubuntu-offtopic for opinions.03:12

Cameron904installed the new version of flash, still doesn't work03:12
duvelMay I ask the best mp3 player for ubuntu when using gnome? 10.04 LTS :) Thank you!03:12

ubottuduvel: Usually, there is no single "best" application to perform a given task. It's up to you to choose, depending on your preferences, features you require, and other factors. Do NOT take polls in the channel. If you insist on getting people's opinions, ask BestBot in #ubuntu-bots.03:13
Pierrick584duvel, rythmbox witch is the default one is great03:13
bazhangduvel, no best. check the players factoid for suggestions though03:13
bazhang!players | duvel03:13

ubuntunoobie2903Anyone know how to minimize a window by clicking on an icon?03:13
xanguaPierrick584: the default now is banshe03:13
Pierrick584he said 10.04 though03:13
dimas_i belive there is a way to integrate pulseaudio with jack but because ubuntu only support pulseaudio the ability to integrate with jack had been dissable on the ubuntu package for what i had to work it out around myself...although i would like to ask here is someone had manake to get it to work?03:13
bazhangdimas_, the pulseaudio you installed with root in your home folder?03:14
DriversFixedubuntunoobie2903:  I'm not sure what is the issue.  Does the icon that looks like a minus sign not minimize windows?03:14
bazhangduvel, try some, see what you prefer03:15
Pierrick584how could i manualy change the audio driver setup?03:15
Pierrick584cant remember where it is03:15
dimas_bazhang i already installed it but i was creating modules for jack with a source package to intagrate jack with it03:15
ubuntunoobie2903I want to be able to click an icon to minimize it. I'd like to move the taskbar to the bottom and be able to minimize a window by clicking on it.03:15
=== tum is now known as Guest40119
dimas_althoug upon the instructions i had read none of them work but they are old03:16
bazhangdimas_, there is no reason to install a single .point difference as ubuntu already uses .9.2.203:16
DriversFixedubuntunoobie2903:  Are you using unity or classic?03:16
dimas_bazhang but the ubunto package dont have module-jack-sink or module-jack-source which are necessary to integrate jack03:17
hydesterdoes anybody know if suspend/hibernate problems can occur when NOT using the broadcom STA driver?  i used to use it in maverick but didn't need it for natty, but suspend/hibernate now crash (hibernate) or reboot (suspend) on resume03:17
DriversFixedubuntunoobie2903:  By taskbar, you mean the top bar or the left side bar?03:18
bluemakohi so i'm trying to install the flash plugin for firefox and i don't have sudo permission to copy it to plugins directory, so like what's the terminal procedure to do so?03:18
ubuntunoobie2903I mean the bar currently on the left that has icons for all the programs I have open03:18
VonhintenHOME`What's the story with XDMCP and Natty?03:18
bazhangdimas_, then you are installing an unsupported version.03:18
bluemakois it like sudo cp Desktop/file_name then...03:18
=== zorro is now known as Guest37990
ubuntunoobie2903I'd like to move that bar to the bottom03:18
bazhangVonhintenHOME`, please ask a clearer question03:18
ubuntunoobie2903and be able to min/max a window by clicking on the icon03:18
dimas_bazhang if you get to work IDJC having pulseaudio installed in your system then i kiss your ass...lol03:19
bazhangubuntunoobie2903, there is not ability to do that in unity at present03:19
bazhangdimas_, no need for that language03:19
VonhintenHOME`There doesn't seem to be a way to login to a remote X server03:19
duvelI remember trying an Ubuntu mp3 player that had the lyrics of songs in one of the box's, which mp3 player is that?03:19
ubuntunoobie2903bazhang: Really?03:19
bazhangubuntunoobie2903, yes03:20
bazhangduvel, amarok is one such. there may be others with the various plugins installed03:20
duvelAh, thank you. :)03:20
dimas_bazhang i have two pieces of softwares from ubuntu that i will like to have them working...would you be so kind to help me with them?03:20
bazhangduvel, although its a kde app, it works fine with gnome03:21
duvelDoes Amarok still run like crap though?03:21
duvelIt used to crash non-stop.03:21
xrdodrxduvel, Amarok is pretty buggy for me too, I use clementine instead03:21
xrdodrxit's a fork of an older version of amarok without all the KDE crap03:21
bazhangduvel, it has had a lot of upgrades/fixes try it and see03:21
duvelxrdodrx: thanks, and bazhang: I will.03:22
DriversFixedCan someone watch http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NxNUK3U73SI for me and tell me whether the driver issue thingies is an effect the maker put in on purpose, or whether its actually my graphics card having issues03:22
DriversFixedBecause it's about overheating cpus, it might actually be intentional...03:22
ubuntunoobie2903Is Unity still in beta?03:22
dimas_had someone been able to have pulseaudio and jack working together?03:23

dusf_ i cannot get past my login screen, i select my username and enter my password, the login window disappears for a minute and just shows the background, the screen flickers black, and then it asks me for the password again - i have tried restarting a few times. how can i fix this?03:23
duvelDriversFixed: That video is effed. lol.03:23
KM0201dusf_: umm. i had that problem the other day and i had to reconfigure something, lemme find what i did.03:24
DriversFixedduvel:  tyvm lol03:24
xanguaxrdodrx duvel: clementine is not a fork, it just inspired from amarok 1.403:24

uhohuhohHello! I am in trouble, and an Ubuntu newbie, when my computer starts up, I don't get the normal Grub screen, but I get "error unknown filesystem" and then a "grub rescue>" console thing03:24
Skeeter-i am unable to install grub with my ubuntu lvm03:24
uhohuhohCould anyone please help me out?03:24
ubuntunoobie2903Well it should be if you can't move the toolbar03:24
xrdodrxxangua, oh, they're so similar I must have been confused :)03:25
dusf_ i cannot get past my login screen, i select my username and enter my password, the login window disappears for a minute and just shows the background, the screen flickers black, and then it asks me for the password again - i have tried restarting a few times. how can i fix this? caps lock is off, password is correct - and i know how the window behaves when i misenter the password - this is03:25
dusf_not it03:25
DriversFixedubuntunoobie2903:  Although since playing around with ccsm will hang ubuntu, yeah... it isn't as mature as it should be03:25
duvelDriversFixed: Looks like it runs perfectly fine in my iphone.... I think it may be flash drivers. Are you running 64 bit by any chance?03:26
jaimekristenehi Ubuntuers.  In Unity, how do I get the left hand menu, with terminal icon, to open a new terminal, rather than keep opening my existing terminal?03:26
KM0201dusf_: listen carefully... control +alt +f1, that will take you to a console.. sign in w/ your account, then "sudo dpkg-reconfigure gdm"  let it do its thing, then when you're back at the prompt, sudo reboot -h now   when you restart, you should be able to sign in03:27
DriversFixedduvel:  Wait, it actually is Ubuntu?  Yah, 64 bit03:27
duvelYeah.. It looks perfectly fine in my iPhone. It's the flash drivers.03:27
jaimekristeneInfact I want all applications to always open a new one rather than to take me to the old one03:27
duvelI've never seen a youtube video do that before... Weird.03:27
kiichiroHey I got a few questions if no one minds03:28
DriversFixedduvel:  That was really ironic, a video about overheating - which can produce those exact errors - has those errors caused by flash on linux03:28
DriversFixedduvel:  Where would we report that03:28
duvelDriversFixed: No idea man.03:29
VonhintenHOME`Does 11.04 support running as an XDMCP server, and does it support logging in to a remote XDMCP server?03:29
duvelDriversFixed: yeah.. That video is DEFINITELY effed up.03:29
uhohuhohGuys, I'm in "grub rescue>" mode right now, I think my linux partition is messed, can I still load one of my windows partitions?03:29
roastedJust to rehash something, Ubuntu has no firewall by default, does it?03:29
KM0201VonhintenHOME`: xdmcp.. isn't that basically for remote desktop?.. if so, i don't see why it couldn't, if you install the right apps, etc03:29
bazhangroasted, iptables03:30
qinroasted: Have, iptables, but not configured03:30
bazhangroasted, gufw if you need a gui03:30
duvelDriversFixed: should find someone running ubuntu 32 bit and ask them to view it, and see if they have the same blocking/distortion that we do.03:30
VonhintenHOME`KM0201, well, apparently it was integrated before, now all the dialogs for configuring the system for remote access are gone, and I can't figure out what the story is03:31
roastedbazhang, just curious cause someone just told me their default install wouldn't let them on the internet due to the firewall blocking but I was like, uh what? I didn't think ubuntu had one by default so I wanted to double check.03:31
DriversFixedHey peeps, anyone running ubuntu 32-bit?  Please watch http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NxNUK3U73SI and see if there's an issue with the video03:31
uhohuhohCould anyone help me out? I'm trying to see if I can load a Windows partition of mine from Grub's rescue mode....03:31
DriversFixedThere's some distortion thingy going on03:31
bluemakook what comes before usr in filesystem structure?03:31
bluemakolike what would the path for it be03:31
VonhintenHOME`DriversFixed, looks like bad encoding03:32
qinbluemako: /usr ?03:32
DriversFixedVonhintenHOME':  duvel just watched it on his iphone, no issues03:32
bluemakoyeah as in /usr/lib/mozilla-firefox03:33
DriversFixedmaybe I should pop over to a different distro's channel and ask them too03:33
VonhintenHOME`let me see on my iphone03:33
bazhangroasted, more like their ISP, though I'd need more particulars if you choose to share03:33
VonhintenHOME`I'm runnign 64bit firefox 503:33
uhohuhohSo no one can help me, yes?03:33
wildbatuhohuhoh: what you need?03:34
KM0201DriversFixed: video looks fine to me.03:34
uhohuhohwildbat: I'm stuck in Grub's rescue mode03:34
DriversFixedKM0201:  On ubuntu?  weird03:34
DriversFixedEh I'll report it and call it a day....03:35
uhohuhohwildbat: when I hit ls, all I can see is msdos partitions, no linux partitions03:35
KM0201why is that weird?03:35
uhohuhohwildbat: so I'm wondering if I can somehow still load into one of the msdos partitions?03:35
wildbatuhohuhoh: did you use WUBI?03:35
VonhintenHOME`DriversFixed, my iphone is showing the same kind of distortion, only not as bad03:35
uhohuhohwildbat: no, I was using ubuntu-minimal03:35
DriversFixedVonhintenhome:  Odd03:35
KM0201VonhintenHOME`: where is it distorted?.. there's a couple spots of the video that were distorted, but not the whole thing03:35
VonhintenHOME`it's an iphone 3g03:35
wildbatuhohuhoh: but you don't have any linux partition ....03:36
uhohuhohwildbat: yeah, which is the *really* messed up thing03:36
VonhintenHOME`The whole thing isn't distorted on my phone or ubuntu, the video is fine until the title screens show up, then it cycles through distortion, then it refreshes and fixes itself03:36
bluemakoi thought it would be an easy answer03:36
nit-wituhohuhoh, you can reload the mbr to load the MS it sounds like do you have a disc?03:36
VonhintenHOME`usually means the video encoding was set up wrong so it isn't expecting much movement03:37
Te3-BloodyIronwhere can i find the nfs logs? i can't find them at all03:37
uhohuhohnit-wit: The disk for the windows? No, not on me. I installed it from a USB (I got it free from university as an iso)03:37
nit-wituhohuhoh, which windows release is it?03:38
uhohuhohnit-wit: Windows 703:38
wildbatuhohuhoh:  so, you wanna load your windows back?03:38
uhohuhohThat would be good enough for now :/03:38
nit-wituhohuhoh, you can poad the mbr with lilo and you will boot to windows directly if every.thing s in order.03:38
uhohuhohI'm thinking of using that...Super Grub Disk?03:38
Te3-BloodyIroncan anyone point me to where nfs logs errors in ubuntu? please?03:39
uhohuhohnit-wit: lilo? Is that a piece of software?03:39
uhohuhohnit-wit: Do I have the right thing? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LILO_(boot_loader)03:39
wildbatuhohuhoh: unless you have grub installed in the ntfs ~ or you will have to bootCD to fix it ~ either supergrub , liveCD, or to revert back to M$ default with windows CD03:39
nit-wituhohuhoh, lilo is a older bootloader it is on a regular ubuntu live cd, but you used a minimal, do you have a regular live cd.03:40
uhohuhohnit-wit: Nope, don't have a regular one.03:40
uhohuhohnit-wit: could make one I suppose...03:40
roastedbazhang, I have nothing to share at the moment, as the user is doing a third shift right now. this was just some basic back-and-forth texting on the matter.03:40
nit-wituhohuhoh, actually the live is used to get lilo from a repo.03:40
bazhangnit-wit, grub203:41
uhohuhohnit-wit, wildbat: what about supergrub? Could that just do the trick?03:41
bazhanguhohuhoh, nit-wit grub2 is what we support here03:41
bluemakoqin/ hello?03:41
nit-witbazhang, not sure of how far they got with the minimal.03:41
qinbluemako: Yup?03:41
uhohuhohbazhang: it's great that you support grub2, I just kind of need to return my computer to working order though...03:42
uhohuhohbazhang: Does it matter which tool I use?03:42
nit-witbazhang, I would only suggest lilo when there seems to be no grub distro install and no MS disc to load the mbr.03:42
bluemakoi'm trying to copy the a plugin for firefox from my desktop to plugins folder, so i try sudo cp Desktop/file usr/lib/mozilla-firefox/plugins03:42
bluemakobut than it tells me that's not right, so what am i missing?03:42
bluemakothat's all...ugh03:43

dusf_writing it down03:47
KM0201dusf_: i told you above how to fix that03:47
dusf_usr13: no, as i said i select my username, and the password i use lets me into the root shell03:47
wildbatuhohuhoh: it depends what did you did.03:47
dusf_KM0201: i just logged in here, so i have no above03:47
KM0201dusf_: listen carefully... but normal mode on ubuntu, when you get to the login screen, control +alt +f1, that will take you to a console.. sign in w/ your account, then "sudo dpkg-reconfigure gdm"  let it do its thing, then when you're back at the prompt, sudo reboot -h now   when you restart, you should be able to sign in03:48

Te3-BloodyIronqin: i just read through the man for nfs, couldn't find the log location. i tried poking around /var/log and couldn't find the right folder03:48
usr13dusf_: and scroll up03:48
Te3-BloodyIronim sure its being logged, but i suspect im not getting the right name03:48
coz_however,, the same identical images are corrupt in home but not on external drives03:49
dusf_usr13: yes what i posted for qin was meant for you03:49
dusf_usr13: i read what you said03:49
duvelDriversFixed: I was using iPhone 4. Not sure that it matters. I had zero distortion. Oh well :\03:49
Te3-BloodyIronqin: the only /var/log/n* item is news, no nfs as far as it is telling me03:49
dusf_KM0201: thanks, writing that down03:49
wildbatuhohuhoh: it isn't like that ~ it is just it is your first time , i think ~03:49
qinTe3-BloodyIron: Ok, auth.log for sure, syslog maybe, let me see if its have native log03:49
duvelOh, he left.03:49
Te3-BloodyIronqin: i havn't dealt with syslog just yet03:51
qinTe3-BloodyIron: Try to grep also messages03:51
qinTe3-BloodyIron: nfs do not run own logs03:52
Te3-BloodyIronqin: so the problem is im trying to setup a nfs share, but it's not telling me why it wont mount03:52
Te3-BloodyIronthe only feedback i have is03:53
Te3-BloodyIronmount.nfs4: access denied by server while mounting
Scribbled2xI am not sure if I am coming to the right spot - here is the situation.  I made a disk using ext2 file system several (11) years ago.  Back when people actually liked using the whole command prompt thing :(?  Now - I tried to mount the disk, but it will not mount the disk.  I made several of them, so one of them should have mounted - they are well maintained and have no serious scratches.  dmesg states that the blocksize is too small?03:54
qinTe3-BloodyIron: sshfs is simpler, and based on ssh key03:55
Te3-BloodyIronqin: i'm trying to use nfs for a pxe boot server i'm trying to make03:55
Scribbled2xif someone has some / any ideas it would be greatly appreciated03:55
rwwScribbled2x: what's the exact error you're getting?03:56
dee27how much kbits would equal to 8 mbits03:56
Scribbled2xit says wrong filesystem type, so I used the -t ext2; but it still will not mount it.03:56
rwwdee27: 819203:56

maujhsnbazhang Thanks!03:58
Te3-BloodyIronqin: nuts, have you dealt with PXE boot with sshfs?03:58
soreauScribbled2x: You might need to set the blocksize with bs=value03:58
soreauScribbled2x: See man mount03:58
qinTe3-BloodyIron: Not really03:58
Te3-BloodyIronqin: alright, well thanks anyways03:58
Scribbled2xI actually tried that but I think I entered it wrong  - here is going to be the fun part - figuring out what block size to put in  -- was thinking 1024, but not sure now its been so long03:59
Scribbled2xthank you soreau03:59

maujhsnbazhang email extraction, phone numbers etc04:01
fuzzeolyis there anyway to automatically boot into "failsafe graphics mode" without having to go into recovery?04:02
soreaufuzzeoly: Automatically? What are you trying to do exactly?04:02
Te3-BloodyIroncan someone help me with nfs? i'm getting an access denied when trying to mount a share04:03
fizyplanktonTe3-BloodyIron: use sudo before the command04:03
Te3-BloodyIroni did04:03
fizyplanktonare you a sudoer?04:03
fuzzeolysoreau: well, ubuntu won't boot up with my graphics adapter, i've tried everything, except in failsafe graphics mode. I'm wondering if i can edit the boot in some way, like "nomodeset" but so it boots into failsafe graphics mode04:04
fuzzeolysoreau: so i don't have to go "start recovery mode" than "boot in failsafe graphics mode"04:04
fizyplanktonare you the only user on your machine?04:04
soreaufuzzeoly: ah.. so it works with nomodeset?04:04
Te3-BloodyIronyes this system is an isolated VM04:04
Te3-BloodyIronim just logged in as root to test the nfs server is working04:04
fuzzeolysoreau: no, it doesn't work with nomodeset. I'm just wondering if there is a boot option like nomodeset but for failsafe graphics mode.04:05
Te3-BloodyIronim trying to setup a PXE boot server, and trying to use NFS for it04:05
soreaufuzzeoly: Is it intel?04:05
fizyplanktonTe3-BloodyIron: try something simple with sudo, like "gksudo nautilus"04:05
fuzzeolysoreau: matrox?04:05
Te3-BloodyIroni tried it, but i dont see how this has anything to do with my nfs issues04:06
fuzzeolysoreau: 2024W i think04:06
soreaufuzzeoly: Well you could create an xorg.conf with Driver "vesa", assuming it doesn't fail until it goes to start X04:06
fizyplanktonTe3-BloodyIron: if it works, that proves you are a sudoer. try "sudo -i" then type in your command then make SURE to type "logout" once your command is finished04:06
fuzzeolysoreau: yeah it fails, it never configured a xorg and i tried to do it manually but it won't work.04:07
soreaufuzzeoly: What did you try that isn't working?04:07
fizyplanktonTe3-BloodyIron: sudo -i logs you into the root account. that should clear up any access issues04:07
Te3-BloodyIronim already logged in as root04:07
fuzzeolysoreau: well i tried to manually install video drivers when i boot up in failsafe mode but i can't make a xorg.conf to tell the system to use the new drivers04:08
soreaufuzzeoly: Why not?04:08
fizyplanktonTe3-BloodyIron: there is no root account in ubuntu. type "echo $USER" and tell me what it says04:09
dusfKM0201: sudo dpkg-reconfigure gdm immediatley gave another bash prompt but i reboot -h anyway. it did not fix the problem04:10
Te3-BloodyIronyes there is04:10
Te3-BloodyIronsudo su puts me into root04:10
fuzzeolysoreau: couldn't connect to x server. I don't even think the install of the os completed properly because it failed on firstboot04:10
Te3-BloodyIronthen passwd lets me change the root password04:10
Te3-BloodyIronthen control d to log out04:10
fizyplanktonTe3-BloodyIron: dont use su. its a bad idea04:10
Te3-BloodyIronthen su to escallate again04:10
Te3-BloodyIronand i enter the password04:10
Te3-BloodyIronand im in root04:10
FloodBot1Te3-BloodyIron: Please don't flood; use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste; don't use Enter as punctuation.04:10
dusfKM0201: i'm logged into a tty right now with the same password04:10
Te3-BloodyIronthis is _strictly for testing purposes_ not for long term use04:10

Te3-BloodyIronnot get lectured about security practices04:10
Te3-BloodyIroncan i please get some nfs help?04:11
soreaufuzzeoly: That should at least do what you originally asked for04:11

Te3-BloodyIronnfs is already installed04:11
Te3-BloodyIroni have the server running04:11
dusfKM0201: should i be trying to reconfigure something other than gdm since i use xfce?04:11
fizyplanktonnot installed. mounted. my bad04:11

bazhang!enter | Te3-BloodyIron04:11
ubottuTe3-BloodyIron: Please try to keep your questions/responses on one line. Don't use the "Enter" key as punctuation!04:11
KM0201dusf: would have been helpful if you mentioned using gdm04:11
dusfKM0201: will i try the same with xfce instead of gdm?04:12
Te3-BloodyIronfrom what i can tell the access denied is on the server end, not because of the user i'm logged in as. the problem is i can't determine why it's denying me04:12
Te3-BloodyIronas in, the daemon04:12
KM0201dusf: probably, but i'm not 100%04:12

temptestHey guys I just downloaded polipo fresh, but when I try to run the daemon it fails, can anybody help me out?04:12
fizyplanktonwhat command are you using to mount the nfs?04:12
KM0201dusf: if i were you, i'd have told people i was using xfce from the beginning04:12

Te3-BloodyIronis one im using04:13
fuzzeolysoreau: i think i did but i couldn't even configure a new xorg.conf in terminal. Maybe i'll try again. I just thought maybe i could add something to the boot kernel. I installed an old ubuntu that works now but i hate it. Maybe i'll end up just getting a new cheap graphics card.04:13
dusfKM0201: trying it04:13
Te3-BloodyIronmount -t nfs4 -o proto=tcp,port=2049 ip:/var/lib/tftboot test04:13

fuzzeolysoreau: ok, thanks.04:14

Te3-BloodyIronthanks for your time04:18
dusfKM0201: ah okay04:18
KM0201dusf: only other thing you could try (at least that i know of) is sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg04:18

bazhangcomputerwiz_222, whats the real question04:20
bazhang!checkinstall | Dan39 have a read04:20
ubottuDan39 have a read: checkinstall is a wrapper to "make install", useful for installing programs you compiled. It will create a .deb package, which will be listed in the APT database and can be uninstalled like other packages. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/CheckInstall - Read the warnings at the top and bottom of that web page, and DO NOT interrupt CheckInstall while it's running!04:20
Dan39o awsome04:21
dusfKM0201: no change. could it be a disk space issue?04:21

computerwiz_222bazhang: my server has a TNT2 RIVA and my netbook has integrated intel04:22
dusfbazhang: i have my system directories split across different partitions04:22

computerwiz_222fizyplankton: yeah, i had some issues with fstab once, ran irssi as root for a couple minutes and these guys saved me :D04:23
bazhangDan39, you'd need to upgrade it yourself04:23
fizyplanktoncomputerwiz_222: i have xorg alll booted up and everything, but im still using irssi04:24
computerwiz_222fizyplankton: yeah, i usually have irssi running in a screen session, somewhere04:24
fizyplanktonit fist well in a screen session04:24
bazhangDan39, otherwise just use package management to handle everything04:24
dusfbazhang: dev/sd8/ 96% full - 1.4gb avail - /home04:25
computerwiz_222fizyplankton: there is nothing like looking super busy by having irssi open -- to the average idiot it looks like you're hardcore hacking04:25

computerwiz_222fizyplankton: yeah, i really need to read the man pages04:27
dusfbazhang: also - how much free space do i need to be able to log in?04:27
KM0201bazhang: why would it not boot if he has 1.5gig remaining?04:27
computerwiz_222fizyplankton: when i discovered that you can name screen sessions i had a small party at my desk04:27

AddyHi guys, I was wondering if I could install ubuntu 11.04 32 bit on my 64 bit computer05:14
bazhangAddy, sure you can05:14
dusfqin: what?05:14
dusfqin: oh i did that already05:15
dusfqin: i clicked other, typed my username, and then my password - which still comes up as dots05:15
Addybazhang: that's what I thought, but when I tried to run or install 11.04 it has a kernel panic and restarts05:15
dusfqin: i've tried something else now tho05:15
dusfqin: i sudo service stop gdm05:15
dusfqin: then startxfce405:15
dusfit does not load, but gives me some information05:15
bazhangAddy, corrupt iso perhaps. md5 it, then reburn slowly and do the disk integrity check05:16
wslayerqin: the restart button on gdm will reboot my system or only gdm?05:16

bazhangAddy, unetbootin? that may take more than once to "burn" it right05:16

bazhangvan7hu, pulseaudio is what ubuntu  uses by default05:24
wslayerqin: the xserver and gdm05:24
qindusf: First move ~/.ICEauthority to _old and try to login05:25
qinwslayer: Correct?05:25
van7hubazhang, thanks for ingo05:25
dusfqin: so sudo mv ~/.ICEauthority ~/iICEauthority_old ?05:25

qindusf: Yes.05:25
dusfqin: brb05:26
dusfqin: do i need a reboot -h?05:26
qinwslayer: gdm takes care of xserver, so you can either start gdm, or just x05:26
BigAlnot like that i mean i know how to use it some what i knw how to use the terminal and all i just want to know fun stuff to do with all the new knowledge05:26
qindusf: Or start gdm05:27

woodyjlwi need help with my wireless card. its hp laptop with bcm4318 card and ubuntu 11.04 . all past versions of ubuntu  always installed the wireless and worked fine. And I had it working on 11.04 till I restarted laptop no nothing06:01
susundbergwoodyjlw: what card to be precise?06:01
HabeebHello, I was wondering if anyone could help me with an audio syncing issue within VLC06:01
Habeebunder 11.0406:01
subminuentisch_mikubuntu had the same  problem with my usb keyboard wich doesent work with any linux ive tried06:02
onelinersusunberg does it make sense to try to run all audio through jack? if so how should i go about configuring, also the whole thing is muddled with audio device blindness06:02
susundbergwoodyjlw: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=10757442 ?06:02
susundbergoneliner: i guess that depends what are you trying to do..06:03
susundbergoneliner: if your computer is 100% use as home studio recording box, then sure it makes sense. If you use it to watch flash videos, then probably not06:04
susundbergoneliner: about configuration i hope there is plenty of resources on the manuals06:04
shtcould anyone provide some general insight on as to why ubuntu may hang when doing apt-get install postfix? it sits at Unpacking postfix (from .../postfix_2.7.1-1ubuntu0.2_amd64.deb) ...06:04

onelinersusundberg: whenever i start the jack server for audio work "common sounds" stop,06:05
onelineryou can say i want both audio work and flash streaming06:05
jeeves_mosswoodyjlw, does the card show up if you pull a "lspci", or "dmesg"?06:05
onelineralso i guess i want to learn more about how to manage sound hardware better06:06
susundbergoneliner: yes i guess that is becouse the jack requires control of the sound system as well as the 'common sounds'06:06
susundbergoneliner: Have you checked google, like: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/HowToJACKConfiguration06:06
woodyjlwjeeves_moss, yes , 05:02.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4318 [AirForce One 54g] 802.11g Wireless LAN Controller (rev 02)06:06
onelinersusundberg: yes, i guess am missing lots of background info to turn that into working solutions06:07
susundbergoneliner: hmm, it might be that 'common sounds' and jack are not working together at all, tough that would be little weird06:07
susundbergoneliner: http://jackaudio.org/documentation ?06:08
Jakman85welcome back, dimas_06:08
Jakman85dimas_, did you get your dj software working?06:09
jeeves_mosswoodyjlw, do you have the backports repo enabled in APT?06:09
woodyjlwjeeves_moss,  sudo apt-get update ,  sudo apt-get install firmware-b43legacy-installer , made it work till i restarted laptop06:10
woodyjlwjeeves_moss,  dont know how do I check06:10
susundbergoneliner: to be honest, i think there is not very good up-to-date documentation of the sound system in complite06:10
susundbergoneliner: the jack documentation would be my best guess, and there they say 2003 is the most recent ..06:11
susundbergoneliner: you might try to look for ubuntu studio documentation also, if there would be some more up-to-date. Or just ask your question here again, i cannot help more, sorry.06:12
RealOptywoodyjlw, whats the issue?06:12
dimas_Jakman85 i am trying to applications...i uninstaled pulseaudio cause it conflict with jack , but i am still having some issues i dont understand i had try another streaming software to see if it was the application..in this one i get the sound to play and connect to the server to strean but there is no data going out either06:12
ubuntunoobie2903Who is in charge of managing the standard ubuntu package repository? How does that work? i.e. there is a game that has had a new version out for awhile, but the old version is still what's in the repository.06:12
woodyjlwjeeves_moss, how do I enable in apt ?06:13
Jakman85dimas_, what did you have pulseaudio installed?06:13
woodyjlwRealOpty,  trying to get my bcm4318 wireless working in 11.0406:13
dimas_Jakman85 i did removed it06:13
RealOptymissing the firmware or the  b43legacy driver?06:14
RealOptywoodyjlw, ^06:14
Jakman85dimas_, I understand, but what was your reasoning in installing it in the first place? (just curious)06:14
dimas_Jakman85 i belive was installed when i upgrade to ubuntu studio06:15
woodyjlwRealOpty,  trying but no luck06:15
Jakman85dimas_, oh, I see. If you run the application from the terminal, do you get any error messages?06:16
jeeves_mosswoodyjlw, sorry, my fiance needed something.06:16
dimas_Jakman85 i dont quiet remember really...maybe was because i  found a good place where they were explaining how to get the idjc and skype to work simultaneously06:16
jeeves_mosswoodyjlw, edit /etc/apt/sources.list06:16
woodyjlwjeeves_moss,  lol np06:17
RealOptywoodyjlw, or06:17
RealOptyload up synaptic package manger06:17
jeeves_mosswoodyjlw, <zip>  yea, sorry, had to preform my "manly duity"06:17
ubuntunoobie2903Anyone understand how the package repository is maintained?06:17
Jakman85dimas_, is the idjc suppose to be a good program? or are you just checking it out?06:17
dimas_Jakman85 the applications are not the problem...i belive i am missing something in the audio06:17
jeeves_mossRealOpty, awwww, seriously?  package manager?  CLI!!06:17
RealOptywoodyjlw, then go to settings -> repo06:17
dimas_i used it 3 years ago...is very good06:17
Jakman85well, I made a package of it when I compiled it. If you want it you are welcome to PM me06:18
dimas_although i tryed another one and i am having the same problem to stream...i do connect to the server but there is not data going out as it doesnt register on the server as streaming06:18
RealOptyjeeves_moss, too bad ubuntu dosnt support UCI06:18
jeeves_mossRealOpty, that's half the fun!!06:19
Jakman85dimas_, that way, if you decide to start from scratch you dont have to try and compile it again06:19
dimas_Jakman85 the problem is not the application06:20
dimas_Jakman is the audio server...some how i am not really sending any data out06:21
Jakman85dimas_, I understand, I am just saying if you so happen to redo Ubuntu entirely, you can just use the package instead of trying to compile it again06:21
Peddyto upgrade from 10.10 to 11.04 with a CD, do I use the Desktop CD or alternate install CD?06:21
Jakman85dimas_, I am not saying this will fix your current issue by any means06:21
dimas_Jakman85 i have a nice set up for my androids apps06:21

thinktank809Hi All... wanted a quick advise... we r trying to install 10.04LTS server 32bit  on PRIMERGY rx300 S6 , have 300GB * 4 HDD , The HDD are in RAID5 + 1HSP... when we install the OS the installation procedure is detecting only 300gb space...should i not get at least 500 to 600gb space07:14
noisewaterphdthinktank809, ubuntu may not be recognizing the raid07:14
noisewaterphdthinktank809, is it software?07:15
Captainkrtekwhat is the raid care?07:15
noisewaterphdonboard, card?07:15
GSF1200Sany troubleshooting ideas for figuring out why logout from the menu hangs?07:15
noisewaterphdwell post your mobo details and maybe someone has experience07:15
thinktank809the raid was configured using the serverview CD07:15
noisewaterphdare you sure the mobo supports booting from the onboard raid07:16
CaptainkrtekI have some server experience, not much with raid + ubuntu07:16
CaptainkrtekI can try to help though07:16
thinktank809ever help is welcome07:16
thinktank809im about to try the 64bit version07:16
noisewaterphdproblem with hardware raid is they are all different with different features and quirks07:16
Scribbled2xhahahah - success :) - the answer - simple: dd if=/dev/sr0 of=~/Crap_Pile_File bs=1024 ; mount Crap_Pile_File /Crap_Pile_File_Mountpoint -o loop07:17
noisewaterphdmanufacturer docs are prob the best place to start07:17
Captainkrtekthat's what i'd suggest07:17
thinktank809manufacturer has only certified as UBUNTU works on this server...but not any further help07:17
WXZhow do I open cmap files?07:17
noisewaterphdthinktank809, find out what onboard raid chip it is, find their docs07:18
noisewaterphdthinktank809, not the server manufacturer07:18
thinktank809hmm..thats a nice one07:18
thinktank809let me try that07:19
Captainkrtekcertified doesnt mean all features will work if I recall correctly07:19
noisewaterphdthey are just saying that out of all linux distros, they tried ubuntu and all hardware was supported07:19
=== DaZ_ is now known as DaZ
noisewaterphdthinktank809, one thing to keep in mind, is that a lot of on board raid chips don't support the raid setup as a boot disk07:20
noisewaterphdthinktank809, in which case use 1 disk as the system disk, raid the rest of the drives raid5 or whatever and moun the raid as /home, or whatever suits you best07:21
thinktank809@noisewaterphd:  microsoft 2003/2008 got installed perfectly07:21
noisewaterphdthinktank809, I don't like running my entire system from raid anyway, that is a lot of uneeded overhead slowing things down07:21
thinktank809is there any limitations on HDD access between 32bit and 64bit07:22
noisewaterphdjust raid the critical data07:22
noisewaterphdjust my opinion07:22
WXZhow do I open cmap files?07:22
sendermousemovement is stuttering, only on ubuntu 11.04 classic mode. Having xorg problems as well, can this be related, and how to solve? thanks07:23
noisewaterphdthinktank809, if MS was able to use the exact same machine and boot from the raid then the bios and chip support it07:23
noisewaterphdso just start with chipmaker docs07:23
noisewaterphdbios docs might be of use as well07:23

q0_0pof this mail and settings07:28
senderJakman85: ok, what am i looking for?07:28
noisewaterphdthinktank809, with a raid card you have to use the card manufacturer software to interface it with the bios with as a bootable disk unless it came preconfigured that way07:28
Jakman85q0_0p, remove the hidden folder in your home directory?07:28

orchatanoisewaterphd:  Well, it doesn't matter which version of ubuntu it is, the idea is that it is a livecd and I want to get some debs from it07:32
noisewaterphdorchata, but if they are on that disc then they are available in some repository somewhere, so you really don't need to get them off the DVD07:32
Jakman85sender, it appears your graphics driver is working07:32
orchatanoisewaterphd: Well, I need to get them from DVD because I don't have good internet connetion to download them07:32
Jakman85sender, what exactly are you doing that is causing poor perforance?07:32
noisewaterphdorchata, give an example of one of the packages you need off of it07:33
senderJakman85: hmmm, ok. Any idea where the stuttering might come from when switching workspaces? Also mouse stuttering.07:33
noisewaterphdorchata, oh07:33
noisewaterphdorchata, ok, so just put the disk in and use software center to install them from the disk07:33
thinktank809my bad....the RAID controller is not onboard...its RAID Ctrl SAS 6G 5/6 512 MB07:33
senderJakman85: it's switching workspaces using Desktop Wall and having more then 4 windows open (not a lot right)07:33
noisewaterphdthinktank809, read back a bit, I already mentioned that07:33
orchatanoisewaterphd: Well, I guess I am doing something wrong, because it does not work this way07:34
noisewaterphdorchata, ok, so just put in the disk, browse the disk, find the packages you want and copy them to your hard drive07:34
Jakman85sender, hmm... not experiencing it with my 8800gts, but it is more powerful than the 8600... I would still be very surprised if it is your hardware though07:34

cyphanoisewaterphd, true, I think it's still an understanding linux thing right now07:38

noisewaterphd[CBH]Edward, in #ubuntu, seriously?08:03
[CBH]EdwardIt's a ubuntu question08:03

[CBH]EdwardOn ubuntu noisewaterphd08:03
noisewaterphdjava is java man08:04
[CBH]EdwardBash scripting for ubuntu08:04
nkhgogeta: from there i cannot remove this eth1 device !08:04
noisewaterphdbash is bash man08:04
[CBH]EdwardIs it not a parameter for apt-get?08:04
gogetankh: it should say in  wired eth 1 and its settings08:04
alex__broadcom sta wireless driver08:04
fairuz[CBH]Edward: #bash08:04
Jakman85good night everyone08:04
alex__this driver is activated and currently in use08:04
gogetankh: and delete08:05
safejav[CBH]Edward: i dont know how to accept it automatically, but if u only need to accept that, hit the arrow keys08:05
nkhgogeta: the problem is not with connections , is with the device driver , there i have nothing named eth1 , is just a Autho Ethernet which is my Current connection Using USB of my Adsl modem !08:05
LigHHow do I separate several alternative DNS servers in the IPv4 configuration? Comma / semicolon / space?08:05
noisewaterphd[CBH]Edward, what do you mean automatically accept? just accept it and move on08:05
gogetankh: so its working?08:06
gogetankh: your modem may be showing up as eth 108:06
safejavnoisewaterphd: i think he is doing several installations08:06
gogetankh: being its usb08:06
bullgard4LigH: "the IPv4 configuration" is an ambiguous term. Please refine your question.08:06
GSF1200Snoisewaterphd: know anything about conky? conky is hanging my logout because I have it cat'ing the contents of a file. The file is in a RAM tmpfs..08:06

noisewaterphdsafejav, I usually just install java once08:07
bullgard4[Natty] In addition to a German keyboard layout I installed a Russian keyboard layout. I can switch between them using Indicator Applet Complete 0.4.12. How can I switch between them  using a keyboard shortcut?08:07
noisewaterphdGSF1200S, nope, sorry man08:07
GSF1200Snoisewaterphd, k, thanks :)08:07
nkhgogeta: The USB0 is available in ifconfig and has ip , i'm connecting with that now, but the networkmanager says it is an Auto Ethernet , While it was Auto USB before :-??08:07
noisewaterphdalex__, no, just reboot08:08

gogetankh: see if it turns on08:09
noisewaterphdgogeta, is the summary so far if i remember correctly08:10
nkhgogeta: ifup says : Ignoring unknown interface eth0=eth0.08:10
gogetanoisewaterphd: yep but his usb nic is fine only the onbord died08:10
gogetankh: you might wanna check to see if the card just hasent died08:11
gogetankh: start off the live cd or something08:11
nkhgogeta: :(08:11
alex__i just needed to reboot -_-08:12
nkhgogeta: ok i'll try this , So what is that eth1 device? ifup eth1 says it's configured ! :-??08:12
nkhgogeta: sudo ifup eth1 : ifup: interface eth1 already configured08:12
gogetankh: i think eth1 is relly 0 and some odd config has renamed it08:12
nkhgogeta: how can i remove this eth1 devoce?!08:13
jpdsgogeta: That would be /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules08:13
nkhgogeta: device*08:13
LigHbullgard4: http://frupic.frubar.net/20556 -- how to add a second DNS server here, how to separate the second address from the first?08:14
nkhgogeta: in /etc/network/interfaces i just hav this auto lo iface lo inet loopback08:14

alex__is easier if i click that link?08:33
ZykoticK9alex__, be sure to add the partner repo if you want Sun-java6-*08:33
noisewaterphdalex__, I recommend you install java6-sun, not the open jdk. sun version is in the partner repo I believe08:33
dinkyd00hmph no really tho .. I don't mind using sudo, I know it keeps things in user space, but what would I have to do to make ubuntu NOT require sudo?08:33

alex__fairuz i have the new ubuntu08:39
alex__clear thing08:39

gogetaalex__: from there slect repos and enable em all08:40
dr_willissako,  theres known issues with plmouth and the nvidia drivers.. personally i disable plymouth.08:40
jpdsbullgard4: "Optionen" under "Tastatureinschtellungen" → "Belegungen", that is.08:40
sakodr_willis: i see08:40
gogetaalex__: should be 4 checkboxes in total08:40
noisewaterphdso lets ponder why we care if the user environment was "set properly"08:40
dr_willissako,  theres literally dozens of pages with 'fix nvidia and plymouth' guides.. some of them can break the system.08:40
sakodr_willis: ah not worth it ;)08:41
ZykoticK9sako, if you REALLY want, there is a script linked on webupd8 that fixes nvidia/ati plymouth08:41
jpdsnoisewaterphd: Well, there's no other way, "not to type sudo" without being rootl.08:41
alex__gogeta in package there are like a lot o.O08:41
sakoZykoticK9: wheres that at?08:41
gogetaalex__: the repo menu08:41
noisewaterphdwe are talking 'environment' here08:42
ZykoticK9sako, http://www.webupd8.org/2010/10/script-to-fix-ubuntu-plymouth-for.html08:42
gogetaalex__: you should see manage repos from that08:42
noisewaterphdhe didn't care about being root08:42
gogetaalex__: from there you can enable partner08:42
dr_willisZykoticK9,  and some times it even works.     :)08:42
frymanHi guys; I'm trying to get the internal mic working on the original macbook air in natty. Following the instructions here: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/MacBookAir1-1/Hardy doesn't seem to work. So, I suppose my question is which kernel module should I be using?08:42
thedude1my external dvd drive won't mount or anything, although it does show up in dmesg as "scsi 34:0:0:0: CD-ROM            QSI      DVD/CDRW SBW-081 NE02 PQ: 0 ANSI: 0". it is powered externally and there is a disc in the drive.08:42
Flannelnoisewaterphd: I'm not sure what you're going on about, but 'sudo bash' wouldn't make him not root either.08:42
noisewaterphdhe wanted to not type sudo for a session, sudo bash works just fine for purposes asked08:42
ZykoticK9dr_willis, ya - I too have had mixed results08:42
noisewaterphdFlannel, no kidding, not the point08:43
alex__the only menus are 208:43
dr_willisZykoticK9,  ive had 4 out of 4 fail. :)08:43
athnamthe channel seems to have stopped working.08:43
alex__all and package08:43
ZykoticK9dr_willis, that's not good - I certainly have had it work08:43
gogetaalex__: hua08:43
dr_willisZykoticK9,  one reason im always comming down on plymouth.  eyecandy that makes trouble shooting harder.08:43
Flannelnoisewaterphd: You don't seem to have a clear understanding of what you're talking about.  So lets just drop it, and in the future, please suggest sudo -i instead of sudo bash.  Thanks.08:43
noisewaterphdthe point is people jump up and down with Err!, when in reality it would have worked out for him just fine. He did not say 'how do I become root from the cli'08:44
droidman101dr_willis: yes, i agree that theyll have to use dvds...but i use a usb stick anyways so i could care less08:44
gogetaalex__: doesent unity hide the menus08:44
noisewaterphdFlannel, no I have a very clear understanding of what I am talking about08:44
dr_willisdroidman101,  yea. or they may have to even get rid of 'wubi' :)08:44
ZykoticK9dr_willis, "get rid of wubi" +108:44

alex__the quick filter08:46
jpdsnoisewaterphd: It does.08:46
gogetaalex__: i dunnoi how unity has your ,layout cant help there08:46

Flannelnoisewaterphd: Lets take this to #ubuntu-offtopic, tanks.08:46
gogetaalex__: i guess you can screen and image shack it or somnethin08:47
droidman101dr_willis: yah, i thought wubi was a bad idea, i mean, ubuntu is a very easy-to-use OS but if you cant figure out how to install it properly you probably wont have tons of patience08:47
fairuzgogeta: What's alex__ searching?08:48
gogetafairuz: to enable all the repos threw synaptic08:48
droidman101which leads to infinitely more "my internet isnt working" "what is your wifi card" "its called bcm4318 or something" "did you install ndiswrapper" "whats ndiswrapper?"08:48
gogetafairuz: i avoide unity like a very bad plage so i cant give him the exact locations of stuff08:49

ikoniakbrown90: the size of the company has nothing to do with it - your reqruirements do, if you can't research a mail server, I suggest you hire someone to manage it for you, as you have no / little chance of running a secure mail service09:35
leagriskbrown90, if Ubuntu server is in your requirements like pointed by ikonia, then you may have advantages with the packaged and ubuntu supported postfix or exim as any other non packaged will be non-ubuntu specific and require tougher maintenance cycles.09:35

krambiorixikonia, it's just the interfaces file09:56
DICTATORSok but ubuntu is an os very bad if you want to have a vpn09:57
ikoniakrambiorix: well, it looks like you're running on a xen host, so there is a possability that the host has locked that file09:57
jpdsDICTATORS: No.09:57
roseyposeythanks brainwave92 and dr_willis I thought so, but haven't experimented in a while.  Pclos user09:57
brainwave92DICTATORS, now that cant be true!09:57
krambiorixikonia, could it be because of ispconfig?09:57
DICTATORSjpds, no why why why?09:57
ZykoticK9DICTATORS, if you refuse to open the required ports - how can you expect it to work?09:57
jpdsDICTATORS: Works fine for me.09:57
dr_willisssh tunnel perhaps.09:57
AlexDevilLXHi All!:)09:57
ZykoticK9dr_willis, i think ssh tunnelling a VPN is rather redundant, isn't it?09:58
ikoniakrambiorix: ahhh very possible, that tool is the devil, it could be looking the file.09:58
noisewaterphdDICTATORS, vpn is simpleon ubuntu09:59
noisewaterphdI connect to work through vpn everyday with ubuntu09:59
brainwave92ZykoticK9, as far as i understand, if a network is already private, like a vpn is, then ssh is redundant09:59
orchatahi guys, I have a live CD with a lot of apps in there. I don't have a good internet connection right now, so dowloading apps is not an option for me. So I thought if I could extract the deb's from that live cd, but don't know how to do it. The "pool" is only 10 MB, So I guess everything is stored in filesystem.squashfs.  I extracted it, but don't know how to get debs from it.09:59
dr_willisZykoticK9,  no idea. I find this channel ofted gets way too many vpn/vps questions that are sort of skirting the 'ubuntu support' area. :)09:59
DICTATORSzykotick9 in windows  i have 7 vpn and in windows without open ports10:00
noisewaterphdbrainwave92, private meanng it puts you on the private network of where you connect to10:00
dr_willisI need to read up on vpn some day and see if i can set one up so i can get to  my homepc from work. :) someday10:00
ill0gicnoisewaterphd, i installed the extras but still doesn't work :(10:00
noisewaterphdbrainwave92, ssh as in encrypted traffic, so no, not redundant at all10:00
noisewaterphdill0gic, tell me the error again10:00
ZykoticK9dr_willis, ya, i've never played with vpn either.  with ssh i don't see the need ;)10:00

thebombikonia, ok sorry10:03
ikoniakrambiorix: ughhh, I guess your ISP has made a "custom" build10:03
ikoniakrambiorix: ok - now do "ls -la /etc/network/interfaces"10:04
noisewaterphdZykoticK9, well you said that ssh tunneling a vpn was redundant, when it isn't at all, so I was trying to help out by explaining what vpn is10:04

ZykoticK9noisewaterphd, i was under the impression the VPN was already encrypted?  Isn't it?10:05
DICTATORSin windows i have 7 vpn againts the censure but in ubuntu ?? what can i do?10:05
ikoniakrambiorix: that should do nothing, then redo (and post) ls -la /etc/network/interfaces10:05
brainwave92@all:anyone knows about a 'squashfs' , module?10:05
noisewaterphdZykoticK9, no, well, yes, with ssh10:05
ikoniabrainwave92: what about it ?10:05
brainwave92orchata: http://cufts2.lib.sfu.ca:8033/trac/dbwiz/wiki/LiveCDCustomization read that link, while i do the same10:05
llutzDICTATORS: are you using networkmanager? install those vpn-plugins, configure it, use it, done10:05
krambiorixikonia, touch: cannot touch `/etc/network/interfaces': Permission denied10:06
brainwave92ikonia, orchata needs to extract a squashfs file, and for doing that, as i understand, you need a module for reading that10:06
jpdsnoisewaterphd: wut?10:06
ZykoticK9noisewaterphd, i think you should read http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Virtual_private_network10:06
ikoniakrambiorix: ok - your ISP has locked it at the Xen host, that confirms it10:06
faLUCE HI. Is it possible to  launch one instance of myprogram displayed at position 100, 100 , another instance of the same myprogram at position 150, 300 and so on?10:06
ikoniakrambiorix: can you show me one last thing the output of the command "id"10:06
dr_willisThe original version of SquashFS used gzip compression, although Linux kernel 2.6.34 added support for LZMA[1] and LZO compression[2], and Linux kernel 2.6.38 added support for xz compression.[3]10:06
ikoniabrainwave92:  it's just a file system, you just mount it10:06
orchatabrainwave92:   I have extracted the squashfs and it looks just the same as my root. I guess it is already installed on the livecd.10:07
krambiorixikonia, uid=0(root) gid=0(root) groups=0(root)10:07
thebombnever knew about the sudo -i and -s thanks!10:07
ikoniakrambiorix: confirmed then, your ISP has locked it on the xen hypervisor10:07
DICTATORSllutz yes i have installed openvpn  and fppt network but dont connet dont work in windows my 7 vpn yes connet yes work10:07
brainwave92ikonia, so mounting it we can see all the packages stored there?10:07
Nobgul-bncwhat does sudo -s do?10:08
dr_willisNobgul-bnc,   check out    http://ubuntu-tutorials.com/2008/05/09/a-root-shell-on-ubuntu-the-right-way/10:08
krambiorixikonia, so it's not ISPConfig's fault?10:08
brainwave92orchata, http://book.opensourceproject.org.cn/distrib/ubuntu/hacks/opensource/0596527209/i-0596527209-chp-1-sect-4.html10:08
dr_willisNobgul-bnc,  gives you a root 'shell'10:08
jpdsDICTATORS: Well, check the logs in /var/log/syslog10:08
brainwave92you'll find all  you need...lunchtym...bye!10:08
ikoniabrainwave92: correct, squashfs is just a compressed file system, so if you mount it, you'll just see the file system that the livecd would present if it was booted10:08
llutzDICTATORS: then check your logs and your configs. what errors do you get etc.pp. vpn works fine here, though10:09
brainwave92ikonia, thanks...thats what orchata needs to do10:09
thebombNobgul-bnc, also the man page of sudo will tell u10:09
ikoniakrambiorix: it looks like it's not, it's more likley it's been locked at the hypervisor level10:09
noisewaterphdill0gic, do you have the ffmpeg plugin for totem installed?10:09
Nobgul-bncAh ok thanks i use sudo -i all the time but never used -s =)10:09
ikoniabrainwave92: not really, as it won't contain any debs for him to use elsewhere10:09
dr_willisNobgul-bnc,  ive never noticed the differance tween -i and -s - there IS a differance.. but it may not be noticeabel in your setup10:09
DICTATORSin the page web of vpn client dont say me : you must open ports nubers xxxxx  and xxxx tcp, udp10:09
dr_willisNobgul-bnc,  one runs the root users init scripts , other dosent.. I think is the main diff.10:10
jpdsDICTATORS: You don't have to open any ports on the VPN client.10:10
llutzDICTATORS: to use a vpn-client you don't need to "open" any port atall10:10
krambiorixikonia, okay i'll call my provider then10:10
orchatabrainwave92:  thanks10:10
noisewaterphdjpds, ZykoticK9, yes? great link, what is your point10:11

glaksmonoanyone is here?10:28
szalwrong question10:28
glaksmonohow do you link files & folders, so that the changes in 1 folder is reflected on the other?10:28
brainwave92better question!10:28
glaksmono= ="..10:28
dsathemake a link10:29
orchatabrainwave92:  not really. The both links show how to create/modify the livecd and no info on taking all debs from the squashfs. I guess there is no debs in there. It looks like they are already installed. So I would need to some how build new debs from that DVD10:29
glaksmonoyeah, but i couldn't make it recursive to files and folders10:29
glaksmonodsathe: how do you do that? can you give me the command?10:29
dsatheu in gnome ?10:29
glaksmonodsathe: i tried ln -s source destination10:29
dsatheln -s10:29
glaksmonodsathe: but it doesn't reflect the changes on the files10:29
DaHaizdsathe how do i tell gnome that it has a connection? the software center says that something's wrong with my connection. but it works as you see10:29
glaksmonodsathe: when you do ls -al on the destination folder, it doesn't seem that the type is a link :-/10:30
yorgosi'm a noob but have you ever heard of something called rsync10:30
brainwave92orchata, oh i see.....u need to 'install' the debs...but the question is, are they as debs on the squashfs?10:30
dr_willisglaksmono,   you did a link wrong then..  what filesystem is this on?10:30
DaHaizdsathe: i've just seen that the status bar menu says that my wlan device is not managed10:30
dr_willisif you set up a link properly, the destination, (or source) are  identical    You are not syncing 2 files.. its one file with 2 names.10:31
orchatabrainwave92:  no, when I mounted the squashfs it looks just the same as my root directory in my laptom. So I guess there is no debs. I wonder how the live cd install the system then? Just copy paste?10:31
ZykoticK9glaksmono, a symbolic link is a pointer to another location/file10:31
dr_willisglaksmono,  give details of exactly what you are trying to do.10:31
glaksmonodr_willis: i'm on Mac10:32
glaksmonodr_willis: haha10:32
dr_willisorchata,  there would be no .debs on the squashfs...10:32
brainwave92orchata, you can package them as deb cant you? that might be possible10:32
dr_willisglaksmono,  os-x uses bsd. so it can proberly do links also.10:32
orchatabrainwave92:  Not sure how to do that10:32
=== Senjai is now known as Senjai|Busy
szalglaksmono: anyhoo, that doesn't answer the question..  what exactly are you trying to do?10:33
DaHaizdsathe: i've just seen that the status bar menu says that my wlan device is not managed? (how does this flood-auto-mute work?)10:36
ZykoticK9DaHaiz, if you are using /etc/network/interfaces network-manager will say "not managed"10:37
dsathedid u play aroud in /etc/network10:37
glaksmonoszal: i'm trying to create a link to the files and folder of Source, so that when I make changes on Destination, the changes on the files inside Destinatoin is reflected on Source... does that make sense?10:37
dr_willisYou are manageing it by hand. :)10:37
dsatheexactly as dr_willis said10:38
glaksmonodr_willis: currently, yes :(10:38
szalglaksmono: and where are Source and Destination located respectively?10:38
glaksmonodr_willis: looking for more efficient way...10:38
dr_willisglaksmono,  You can make a link from directory 'foo1' and give it a new name  foo2     if you access stuff in foo2. you are actually alering things in foo1. youa re not syncing.. the data files are the same.10:38
dr_willisglaksmono,  if you have 2 differnt folders and want the contents to be identical,. then you do need to do some sort of rsync then.10:38
DaHaizyes i did. /etc/network/interfaces. otherwise my network didnt work. how can i tell the network manager to manage it? i've just configured it myself because the network-manager didnt want to.. ;)10:38
glaksmonothat's the thing!!10:39
glaksmonoi need rsync10:39
FloodBot1glaksmono: Please don't flood; use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste; don't use Enter as punctuation.10:39
dr_willisglaksmono,  theres also various 'fuse' tools that can make it more transparent.10:39
brainwave92orchata, you can install the os inside virtualbox10:39
ZykoticK9DaHaiz, you need to remove your settings from /etc/network/interfaces to allow Network Manager to use/configure them10:40
orchatabrainwave92: I could, but I don't really need the os. I need some apps from it10:40
brainwave92and use apt in cd to generate .debs of all, paste that in a pendrive, and install that in the host os10:40

brainwave92szal, but the live cd actually installs them doesnt it? so there MUST be a way!10:42
dr_willisthe alternative cd. has some debs on it - i think. because it can be used to upgrade an existing system. Live cd. dose not  i belive10:44
glaksmonohow do you create alias of a command?10:44
dr_willisglaksmono,  via the 'alias' command... for bash. or link iot to a differnt name10:44
dr_willis ln -s /use/bin/foo /usr/bin/foo210:44
dr_willisoops a typo. :) and sudo would be needed in that case10:44
szalbrainwave92, orchata: other than that, Ultimate Edition is NOT Ubuntu, it's a derivative we don't support here10:44
glaksmonohmm.. afai remember it wasn't like this :-/10:45
glaksmonoi just wanna create a script10:45
brainwave92szal, but he wants to install them in ubuntu....so whats wrong?10:45
ZykoticK9dr_willis, careful MAC uses a different file system layout (i think).  glaksmono10:45
glaksmonoand then i can add to environment variable10:45
dr_willisglaksmono,  i dont know  what you are rembering.. but the alias command and ln -s are ways...10:45
dr_willisglaksmono,  you can make a 2 line script that just runs a command ...10:45
brainwave92alias attrib='chmod'10:45
glaksmonoshell script10:45
dr_willisand copy it somewhere in your path.10:45
brainwave92for a script, you can type alias10:46
dr_willis#!/bin/bash        /the/command/to/run  (2 lines)10:46
claviusmondhow do I add tv streaming addresses to vlc? All I have tried, with information found on the net, has failed10:46
dr_willisan alias is not a script. :)10:46
brainwave92dr_willis, i thought he wanted to create an alias for a command, in a script10:46
dr_willisso theres at least 3 ways to do what he wants.. dependiong on the details.10:46
BarryBCan anyone tell me, what runlevel is Xorg / X11?10:46
dr_willisglaksmono,  so be a bit more clear in what you want to do.10:46
dr_willis!runlevel | BarryB10:47
ubottuBarryB: In Ubuntu all runlevels except 0,1 and 6 are by default equal. Also keep in mind that Ubuntu now uses !Upstart instead of System V init so there is normally no /etc/inittab.10:47
dr_willisBarryB,  none of them. its started by the gdm service.10:47
dr_williswhich runs on all runlevels except 0 1 and 610:47
BarryBok, how can i determine if x11 is runnign before another process on start up?10:47
glaksmonodr_willis: i'm trying to add something into environment variable, so that instead of doing liek rsync -r bla bla10:48
glaksmonoi can just do rsync10:48
glaksmonoand it automatically grab that command10:48
glaksmonoor something like that10:48
dr_willisglaksmono,  put an alias in your .bashrc or .bash_profile10:48
dr_willisdont name it 'rsync' however.. :)10:48
dr_willisa name like 'myrsync' may be better.10:48
dr_willisalias lm="ls -l | more"10:50
bullgard4ZykoticK9: packages.ubuntu.com: "keyword too short (keywords need to have at least two characters)." This is no sufficient reason to argue that "you have a system without X(org)?" The search function in packages.ubuntu.com simply does not accept a very short filename such as "X".10:51
glaksmonodr_willis: what should i put on .bash_profile?10:52
Viking667There are precious few commands that have one letter.10:52
ZykoticK9bullgard4, so search for xorg10:52
glaksmonoalias <command> ?10:52
ZykoticK9bullgard4, FYI "dpkg -S /usr/bin/X" shows xserver-xorg on my system - yours is possibly different!!!10:52
dr_willisglaksmono,  an alias that does what you want....  i juat showed an example above...10:52
Viking667actually, search for Xorg, if the searcher is case-sensitive10:52

tixo5hey, is it possible to install newer kernels on older ubuntu versions? or are they compiled for that version only?11:15
AlexDevilLXthx for website11:15
dr_willistixo5,   in theory you could compile your own for them. there are  kernel ppa's also.11:15
tixo5dr_willis: i used the kernel ppas, i was just wondering if i installed say 2.6.35 or something on lucid would it fail ?11:16
blarggtixo5, they sometimes backport them. For example, I've found 2.6.35 and 2.6.37 (if I remember correctly) for Lucid, though 2.6.37 had some issues with the nvidia driver11:16
dr_willistixo5,  i would make sure you had backups made... :)11:16
blarggtixo5, 2.6.35 worked without issue when I tried it for a couple of days, didn't even break the nvidia driver11:16
dr_willisand hopefully worse case.. you select the older kenel from the grub menu..11:16
tixo5do you have any idea of the latest one for 9.04? i installed 2.6.31 but it doesnt seem to be new enough still and fix my issue11:16
tixo5ok guys, sounds like its worth a shot! :)11:17
tixo5its on another partition so reinstalling isnt an issue11:17
AlexDevilLXRhythmbox vs Banshee11:18
tixo5blargg: are there any other steps i need to do but run the .deb package?11:18
blarggtixo5, see if you can find a ppa with it specifically built for 9.0411:18

Senjaiblargg: hope i dont lose any data on the windows side. Though i read gparted is pretty good.11:27
dr_willisAFD,  You would need to install some vnc server. you can then decide ifyou want to share the current visible desktop (xvncserver, I think) or have a hidden vnc server/session , tightvnc, or vnc4server11:27

SenjaiThank you dr_willis, blargg when you said right next to eachother, the partition moving to the left to absorb the unallocated space is that what you meant?11:33
Hazukiunomi, what does fglrx have to do with sound?11:34
blarggSenjai, no, I meant free space *after* the partition being expanded. If the free space is before, it has to move the partition to the left before it expands it, thus it takes a long time :)11:34
dr_willis(part 1) (part2) (part3) (unallocated) --->  (part1)(part2)(part3     bigger)11:34

Senjaiblargg, to grow into free if its directly adjacent is easy, because it just extends the boundary of the partition right?11:38
dr_willisSenjai,  you got it.11:38
jab_doais there a way to get the old behavior of https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UpdateMotd? looks like its pam only which costs a lot of performance11:38
blarggSenjai, yeah, and unless you're using something like LVM, partitions must be contiguous and their data in linear order.11:38
Senjaiblargg, LVM?11:38
ubottuTips and tricks for RAID and LVM can be found on https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/SoftwareRAID and http://www.tldp.org/HOWTO/LVM-HOWTO - For software RAID, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/FakeRaidHowto11:38

rosstaylorjatt: i tried powertop but it doesn't work11:39
louis_anyone has issue with unity menu on top panel? 11.0411:39
blarggSenjai, LVM basically does for partitions what a normal filesystem does for files: they can be fragmented (and even be spread across multiple disks)11:39
dr_willisive had so many graphical glitzes with unity. its not even useable here.11:39
Senjaiblargg, I only know of RAID.11:39
Senjaiblargg, ones performance, and ones... mirrored?11:39
Senjaiblargg no idea how hard disk storage works though, perhaps ill look into it.11:40

usr13tajasel: I don't think you are explaining your problem correctly.  Try again.12:18
blarggusr13, he's saying that the download page apparently only offers the Windows version, and he wants the Linux version12:19
kevinm2khey, wondering if someone can help12:19
usr13blargg: of what?12:19
Muellitajasel: well, how did you put the .iso on the USB pendrive? You need to use "dd" or smth equivalent12:20
blarggtajasel, perhaps you have your browser set to claim that it's Internet Explorer? That would fool the download page.12:20
kevinm2kI have ubuntu installation my system has 4 partitions, 1=pq service, 2= system reserved (windows recovery) 3=ubuntu, 4=unpartitioned, I want to load windows back on to system, but loading in to windows recovery doesn't see any drive to load the recovery on to12:20
kevinm2ki have tried making 4 to ntfs and fat32 but no joy12:20
usr13blargg: I think you are on the wrong track.12:20
blarggBehi, google turns up memmon12:21
tajaselOK, the problem is, I downloaded Ubuntu from http://www.ubuntu.com/download/ubuntu/download using Download options Ubuntu 11.04 32-biot, and the iso that downloaded has exe files in it and won't boot from my machine, I want one that will install from my Linux mmachine12:21
usr13kevinm2k: MS Windows will only boot from partition #112:22
DasEitajasel: natty 32 bit ?12:22
kevinm2kusr13 - does that mean, I need my windows partition to be /dev/sda3 ?12:22
blarggtajasel, the presence of .exe files doesn't necessarily mean that it's *only* bootable in Windows12:22
kevinm2kusr13 - if thats the case, I'll need to remove ubuntu partition... which will delete grub and I wont be able to boot the windows recovery partition12:22
DasEitajasel: http://www.ubuntu.com/download/ubuntu/download12:22
Behiblargg: looks like it works like top12:22
usr13tajasel: The exe files are more than likely compressed files.  WHat ever you download will need to be decompressed and burned to the USB stick.12:23
blarggBehi, according to one page, "memmon provides a convenient mechanism to report the maximum amount of memory that a process uses."12:23
tajaselMuelli: by following the instructions for an Ubuntu machine on the download page (my installation is fucked and I'm bored trying to fix it, just wiping over and starting afresh)12:23
tajaselblargg: nope, that was my first thought and I've tried it with two different browsers, neither of which are claiming to be IE12:23

blarggBehi, https://software.sandia.gov/trac/utilib/wiki/Documentation/memmon12:24
tajaselDasEi: yes, I said that's where I downloaded from...12:24
kevinm2kusr13: My system has always had /dev/sda1 as pqservice which is the recovery, /dev/sda2 as system reserved and /dev/sda3 used to be the windows partition, that was all fine, it only went wrong when i made /dev/sda3 the ubuntu partition12:25
wildbatusr13: really ?~ how come my windows boot from 3 partition XD12:25
DasEitajasel: did you verify the d/l ?12:25
ubottuTo verify your Ubuntu ISO image (or other files for which an MD5 checksum is provided), see http://help.ubuntu.com/community/HowToMD5SUM or http://www.linuxquestions.org/linux/answers/LQ_ISO/Checking_the_md5sum_in_Windows12:25
tajaselusr13: I literally followed all the instructions on the download page, and it said nothing about decompressing anything...12:25
usr13tajasel: I don't think it's the browser.12:25
Behiblargg, hmmm I was looking at this http://readthedocs.org/docs/superlance/en/latest/memmon.html looks like we  have too many memmons :D12:25

manuvadoes it matter if your /boot partition is the last primary partion (sda4)?12:26
Behiblargg thnx12:26
tajaselusr13: URL of what? the iso?12:26
kevinm2kusr13: I was thinking that maybe the recovery console was hard coded to put the OS back on to /dev/sda3 and because that is EXT4 it wasn't working, but the prob is if I format sda3 to ntfs, I will lose grub, hence lose the boot up options and cant access the recovery console, if there was a grub on flash drive that may solve it though12:27

tajaselusr13: you said "Give me the URL" - the URL of what?12:29
usr13tajasel: The instructions12:30
kevinm2kusr13: At one point I removed winodws and put ubuntu on /dev/sda3, when I boot up my machine now it gives me the option of loading in to ubuntu, and in to my recovery console which is on /dev/sda112:30

tajaselthe problem seems to be with the file that was actually downloaded though? i.e. it won't run on a non-Windows machine. I also tried booting my Mac with it and that didn't work either.12:39

Fortunately I am able to suspend my laptop but it does not happen instantly. After I choose option suspend my laptop turns off wifi and display, but then it keeps cooling my PC approximately 10 minutes. I understand that it is motherboards fault but I have noticed that when I log out and then suspend from GDM it happens noticeably faster12:46

SwedeMikeChillance: I'd say it can't be done that way.12:55
DasEiquaisi: no, you ssh -X in and then are on the remote host, there progName + Enter12:55
Chillanceyea, was afraid of that12:55
quaisisorry Chill - I normally vnc with remmina... :)12:55
SwedeMikeChillance: ssh -X is the other way around, you run the program on the other machine and display it on your local one.12:55
Chillanceyea, I love ssh -X :)12:56
DasEiChillance: depend on bandwith12:56
Chillanceyea, but again.. local LAN..  not really a problem12:56
usr13SwedeMike: It can be done.  He needs to enable X forwarding in sshd.conf12:57
SwedeMikeusr13: that's not what he wanted.12:57
usr13It's /etc/ssh/sshd_config12:58
SwedeMikeusr13: he wanted to connect to the other SESSION.12:58
SwedeMikeX-forwarding doesn't do that.12:58
usr13X11Forwarding yes12:58
usr13SwedeMike: Then what is it he is wanting to do?12:58
usr13ssh -X   #To enable X forwarding13:00
Chillanceyea, like vnc, but through ssh, and then like if it was ssh -X, attaching what is seen local on the other machine forwarded to me..13:00
Chillancewell, say I do ssh -X13:00
Chillancehow can I get what is seen over there locally over to me?13:00
icerootChillance: vnc is the only way to see what is going on there13:01
icerootChillance: nx is a way to start a NEW session13:01
quaisichillance: why don't you want to use vnc?13:01
icerootChillance: ssh -X is starting a new program and is not attaching to a running session13:01
usr13Chillance: Edit /etc/ssh/ssh_conf  (on the server end) and add line X11Forwarding no  to X11Forwarding yes  (or just add X11Forwarding yes to it).  And then, from client, do  ssh -X13:02
Chillancevnc feels slower..13:02
SwedeMikeusr13: he already knows about ssh -X, it's not what he wants to do.13:02
Chillanceoh well, no biggie..13:02
usr13Chillance: Edit /etc/ssh/ssh_conf  (on the server end) and CHANGE line X11Forwarding no  to X11Forwarding yes  (or just add X11Forwarding yes to it).  And then, from client, do  ssh -X13:02

mankeletorwhat is the best fs for / ?13:58
scotch_83bazhang, I think they're not. The point is that I've been trying a bit of everything, so I don't know if now I have the right configuration. I used this...than uninstalled the x-server and reinstalled it.13:58
bazhangmankeletor, ext4 is standard13:58
dr_willisalphacat,  put the HD in a usb enclosuer. :) install linux to it from a differnt box.13:58
blarggI removed several older kernel versions with Synaptic, but I've just found that there are still builds of the nvidia and virtualbox modules in /var/lib/dkms. Can I have the package manager remove these, or do I need to run dkms remove ?13:59
dr_willisalphacat,  ive also  used a tinycorelinux live cd. to 'dd' a ubuntu isntalled fully to a 8gb flash drive. to a hard drive to 'clone' it to a hard drive.13:59
alphacatgood idea but it's a 2.5 incher stuck inside a cheap philips laptop13:59
mankeletorbazhang: thx, finally i get tired about hdd error {DRDY err} :(13:59
mankeletorbazhang: im using ext4 in /13:59
Sidewinder1scotch_83, Make sure that you've enabled "Restricted, Proprietary drivers" in Synaptic Pkg. Mgr., under Sources.13:59

BluesKajwhat's the concensus on aptitude vs apt-get on ubuntu 11.04 ..there still seem to be some confliting opinions out there , but what are the real facts ?14:00
dr_willismankeletor,  ive see similer messages as the drive speeds. up.. never ntoced any real issues with them.14:00
dr_willisBluesKaj,  i dont see much need to use aptitude unless you like it better.14:00
alphacatdr_willis i can try tinycorelinux, i only have a 2gb pen drive though14:00
dr_willistheres no 'real facts'14:00

dr_willisalphacat,  tincorelinux = 10mb. :)14:01
scotch_83bazhang, I used this https://wiki.ubuntu.com/X/Troubleshooting/FglrxInteferesWithRadeonDriver#Problem:%20%20Need%20to%20fully%20remove%20-fglrx%20and%20reinstall%20-ati%20from%20scratch14:01
dr_willisalphacat,  so that tool you used i think can put both on the same flash drive.14:01
blarggBluesKaj, man apt-get says that aptitude is a front-end that uses apt-get etc. internally14:01

alphacatdr_willis okay the 8gb you mentioned confused me, what do you mean by cloning with dd14:01
mankeletordr_willis: after that messages my OS get down... and I have to repair the hd using hdd regenerator.. and the most of the times i have to reinstall the OS14:02
dr_willisalphacat,  i got a 'master' ubuntu install on a 8gb pendrive. I imzage to hard drives as needed.14:02

dr_williscupu,  that last line made no sence what so ever.14:05
dr_willisgaurav_natty,  you got a dual core cpu perhaps.14:05
bazhangcupu, there's nothing complicated abou t it, intel cards do no t use nvidia drivers14:05
alphacatdr_willis will that run from usb? i've burnt 3 cd's in the last 24 hours and i thought we had left the days of optical media behind so i don't have many spares left14:05
cupusorry bazhang so how to remove all packed nvidia drivers on my notebook14:06
usr13dyd: It will end up as a smaller partition, but you can use gprted to enlarge it.  Or you can use g4u  See: http://www.feyrer.de/g4u/14:06
bazhangcupu, why would you need to14:06
gaurav_nattydr_willis, yes i  have daul core can u explain me more14:06

dr_willisgaurav_natty,  dual core = seen as 2 cpus... whats to explain...14:06
dr_willisgaurav_natty,  quad core = 4 cpus...14:06
alphacatdr_willis alright i'll try that14:06
