tzhuangRegarding Ubuntu 11.04 installation: I partitioned around 100MB as a boot partition for which I specified to mount /boot. I then said to install the bootloader to sda7 (the boot partition). During the installation, the installer said I could not install the bootloader to the partition. The gui wouldn't work at that point so I was forced to reboot. Then I tried to install Grub2 manually through a terminal to no avail.  The error I get is "Sector 50 is already in 00:03

To be removed: lubuntu-desktop  cancel/mark"   do i select it and mark or just hit mark, what will happen, will it remove my lubuntu desktop?00:12
gohdan!tell Qinxu about alternate00:13
ubottuQinxu, please see my private message00:13
wildbatQinxu: should you be in hosiptial ?~ you just lost a hand ;p ~j/k just you haven't make a boot USB successfully ~ try other method of make it.00:14

ejoSo... I'm scp'ing a small file (3 MB) over to my account on a server, and scp gets to 100%.  I wait a few seconds and I get a cursor back in my shell but no prompt.  It then takes another two minutes, nearly, to get my prompt back.  Is that just a result of buffering or something in the transfer?00:16
ejoI'm guessing 100% shown by the progress display was only referring to 100% of it having entered the buffer, and it hadn't actually been all transferred at that point.00:16
squarebracketwhat's the best partition type to use for windows / linux cross-compatibility?00:16
squarebracketerr, filesystem type00:16
wildbatsquarebracket: you don't have choose ~ FAT32/ ntfs is all windows can use00:17
gohdansquarebracket:  you can use ext3 if you install the appropriate drivers in windows00:17
=== arrrrcanum42 is now known as Guest4676
QinxuI used the same stick to insyall on my Eee 90000:17
squarebracketok, so between fat32, ntfs and ext3, which is the best to use? it'll mostly be for storage / backup; windows and linux OS's have their own partitions | wildbat gohdan00:18
squarebracketor does it even matter if performance isn't a huge issue?00:19
tofaffyHello, I'm running Gnome3 in Ubuntu 11.04 and I am trying to figure out what the old "Apperance" program was, as it is no longer installed.00:20
aeon-ltdtofaffy: gnome-apperance-manager iirc00:20
wildbatsquarebracket: i would pick ntfs ~ i don't like ext3 under wins ~ it mount as ext2 ~ fat32 is kinda outdated ~ not files >2GB.00:20
gohdansquarebracket:  ntfs doesnt have the limitations of fat32 and ext isnt native to windows. (although ntfs isnt native to *nix either) ntfs would be the "sane" choice00:20
tonyyarussosquarebracket: Whatever you're using natively.  So, backup the Windows to NTFS, and the Linux to ext3.00:20
aeon-ltdtofaffy: *properties not manager00:20
tofaffyaeon-ltd: That isn't installed, and isn't available in the repos.00:21
squarebrackettonyyarusso, sure, but that would require separate partitions. i don't want to have to juggle partition size, cuz that's /never/ an easy task00:21
squarebracketwildbat, gohdan thanks for your help00:22
simpleblue"ifconfig" in terminal = "bash: ifconfig: command not found" .. using arch. any ideas?00:22
aeon-ltdtofaffy: its part of gnome control centre00:22
simplebluei know i'm missing a package for it. just don't know which one :/00:22
gohdansimpleblue: this is an ubuntu support channel. if you need arch support please use their channel00:23
simplebluegohdan, the programs would be similiar, but i'll leave if you want me to00:23
squarebracketsimpleblue, i've heard arch is a bit difficult, good luck! :)00:23
simplebluei'm finding that out, lol00:24
gohdansimpleblue: they are radically different. and we can not support another distro here. particularly one with such poor security and pkg management practices00:24
westzi'm trying to find someone who might be interested in coding a blog, staying on for support and hopefully making some money in the long term00:24
simplebluealright gohdan, tc00:24
Blue1westz: have you seen my blog?  http://www.pkill-9.com00:24

RPG-MasterWhat's the best file system for sharing between Ubuntu and OS X?00:27
StevenRRPG-Master: what's your criteria for "best" ?00:28
RPG-MasterBesides FAT and its limited self.00:28
gohdanwestz: packman _is_ pretty nice.. all those unsigned pkgs it pulls in.... not so much00:28
StevenRRPG-Master: and define "sharing" too00:28
gohdanwestz: https://igurublog.wordpress.com/2011/02/19/archs-dirty-little-notso-secret/00:29
RPG-MasterStevenR: Well, something other than NTFS, but is still easily read able between the two, on an external HDD.00:29
amfcostais there anyway to get the current state of the messages (chat, mail) indicator?00:29
RPG-MasterUnless NTFS is the only easy-to-set-up-and-read FS...00:30
StevenRRPG-Master: so, really you mean "What FS should I use for my external hard disk to allow my mac and my ubuntu box to read it" ?00:30
amfcostapreferably in C... but in pyton will also do it...00:30
RPG-MasterStevenR: Sorry, yeah that about sums it up.00:30
RPG-MasterListening to metal while writing...00:31
squarebracketwestz, gohdan, i've actually debated trying arch just because packman sounds intriguing... but that security issue is good to know00:31
RPG-MasterIt messes with ya'00:31
StevenRRPG-Master: it's cool, just making sure I captured your question correctly :) ... you might try the mac-native fs (HFS+ or whatever it's called?) I think the Linux kernel can read that00:31
RPG-MasterStevenR: Googling it now...00:32
StevenRRPG-Master: or there might be a fuse package for it00:32
gohdansquarebracket: it is even more troubling because the arch lead dev has been rooted on numerous occasions... because of changes he and his teams have made to pkgs in the repo defaulting to the least secure settings, and overwritting any secure confs a user previously had00:32
StevenRRPG-Master: sudo apt-cache search hfs   suggests a few things too00:32
westzsquarebracket, dont let that get to you, it's a very upstream distro so it's inevitable. it's a really good distro, i used it until i broke it, but i didnt have the time to get it set up again (no internet at home, and i leave for the military in a week)00:33
RPG-MasterStevenR: I have read about this MacFuse thing, and how it'll let you use most file systems on a Mac. But I couldn't figure out how to set it up.00:33
StevenRRPG-Master: it's probably easier to let the mac use something native, and let the ubuntu box deal with it :)00:33
RPG-MasterStevenR: Probably. :P00:34
squarebracketgohdan, WOW... that's crazy00:34
squarebracketwestz, maybe i'll set it up in a vm.. just to play it safe :)00:34
gohdansquarebracket: bettter drop a vm in a vm in a vm to be sure. after all... its arch :300:36
RPG-MasterStevenR: Scratch that. Linux can only read HFS+. Linux /can/ write, but you first must turn off journaling. Not good...00:39
squarebracketgohdan, don't worry, i'll throw windows in the mix somewhere... just to throw them off the scent ;)00:39
ubuntunoobie2903How does a program get into the Ubuntu repository? Who is in charge of updating the repository when a new version of a program comes out?00:39
squarebracketoh man, i'm excited to try running the source engine under linux... finally getting a decent install of ubuntu going on my desktop00:41
gohdanubuntunoobie2903: a majority of the pkgs come from the upstream debian repo. the people in charge of updates in ubuntu are the ubuntu package maintainers (aka ubuntu developers)00:41
ubuntunoobie2903So when someone comes out with a new version of their program, are they responsible for submitting that update? Does the update have to be approved?00:43
sdubuntunoobie2903 i believe it does have to be approved otherwise some programmers can put bad code on your computer00:45
gohdanubuntunoobie2903: the maintainer is in charge of obtaining the package, approving, testing, configuring and patching it to work with ubuntu.00:45
squarebracketgohdan, how hard is it to get vetted as a maintainer? i remember at one point there was a package that was not actively maintained, and i wanted to see if i could package it.00:46
temporehi, is there any self-installing software for ubuntu vpn?  because openvpn and fppt dont work neither connect in my ubuntu00:48
gohdansquarebracket: you start off by bug squashing and building a name in the community. eventually you can request or be offered a mentorship and begin that way.00:48
ubuntunoobie2903gohdan: So how do I figure out who is maintaining a particular package?00:49
StevenRRPG-Master: in that case, it's probably the mac-fuse thing you need to look at then, or a format both can read.00:49
StevenRRPG-Master: I'm gone now. (it's nearly 2am here!)00:49
RPG-MasterStevenR: Thanks and goodnight. :)00:50
gohdani believe there is a nice episode about this process on the "This Week in Debian" podcast.  | ubuntunoobie2903 squarebracket00:50
temporehi, is there any self-installing software for ubuntu vpn?  because openvpn and fppt network vpn dont work neither connect in my ubuntu00:50
amfcostaso, is there anyway (in C or Python) to get the state of the messages indicator in 11.04? I mean, to know if there's a notification or not?00:51
Logan_ubuntunoobie2903: http://packages.ubuntu.com/distro/package - e.g. http://packages.ubuntu.com/natty/pisg - it displays the maintainer in the right column.00:51
squarebracketgohdan, oh cool, thanks for the tip00:51
gohdanubuntunoobie2903:  the developer in charge of a pkg is noted on packages.ubuntu.com00:51
gohdanit may be in the documentation pulled down by dpkg too00:52

gohdanalthough, i am not privy to how difficult it is to break in as an ubuntu developer. most of them are the original debian maintainers and canonical just rsyncs the repo but ubuntu does have many pf there own. debian is the most accessible and easy distro to become active in.00:57

ANONYMOUSIPin windows i can be anonymous ever because  i have many vpn clients but in ubuntu i only can be anonymous with a vpn client to run with wine, why?01:42
EmuAlertKM0201: As in, wipe the current Ubuntu installation and replace it entirely, while keeping the same parition size and not screwing up my other partitions01:43
tsimpsonShariff: use apt-cache01:43
KM0201EmuAlert: its very easy... if you pay attention.;01:43
szaltom719co: there is no supported upgrade path from 9.04 to 10.04 any more, so you basically have 2 options: keep 9.04 running but be aware that it's out of support, or reinstall w/ 10.04, that'll keep you running till 12.04, upgrade to which will be supported, or till approx. spring 2015 at the latest01:43
tsimpsontom719co: see the guide I gave you01:44
gohdanEmuAlert: then, yes. you should also probably use a separate '/home' partition01:44
KM0201gohdan: not really01:44
ANONYMOUSIPhow ubuntu can be sure if is so difficult to install a vpn client native?01:45
tom719coszal/tsimpson: i'm getting conflicting information ...  the link shows an upgrade path to 10.04 still.   I dont *require* it to be upgraded fully.. It's just that I couldn't install anything. But after using the sources.list provided in the EOL document, I can now install what I needed.. So I'm not sure if I should proceed01:45
szalANONYMOUSIP: there is no such thing as anonymity on the Internet; there'll always be a way to find out your IP, you can only make it more difficult01:46
tsimpsontom719co: you should, as you will get no security updates with 9.0401:46
ubuntunoobie2903Could anyone help me figure out where scid is putting its configuration file.

ANONYMOUSIPszal ok but my vpn client in ubuntu with wine is the most sure of all?01:47

ANONYMOUSIPyeah but i only have in ubuntu this vpn althoug be a risk to run with wine in ubuntu01:50
gohdanANONYMOUSIP:   'apt-cache search vpn' stop running things in wine01:52
KM0201ANONYMOUSIP: if you're that concerned about security, the last thing i wouold do, is run a VPN via wine01:53

hamneggawierd we both used the same phrase02:34
szalhamnegga: it does, but install the -rt (or was it -lowlatency?) kernel & run the stuff w/ JACK & you'll be surprised what you can get out of it02:34
szalhamnegga: provided you have decent hardware, that is02:35
hamneggaI was actually just thinking of compiling and trying linux-3.0-rc502:36
hamneggaIs there anything I need to consider in compiling the kernel for amd64, or should that be fine, make make modules etc.02:36
* szal would guess that somebody else already got their hands dirty w/ kernel 3.0 & you just need to search for a PPA that has it02:37
ubottuThe core of Ubuntu is the Linux kernel: see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Kernel - You shouldn't have to compile your own, and if you need to troubleshoot issues, you can try a !Mainline kernel instead, but if you insist, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Kernel/Compile (see also !Stages)02:37
hamneggaI don't have a dedicated sound card, just nforce 6150SE02:37
i2iotCan someone help me with this02:38
i2iotYour system has a limit for maximum amount of locked memory. This might cause Ardour to run out of memory before your system runs out of memory.02:38
i2iotYou can view the memory limit with 'ulimit -l', and it is normally controlled by /etc/security/limits.conf02:38
hamneggaI wanna see ubuntu get some nvidia drivers that'll support both onboard and dedicated GPU's, simultaneously, for CUDA purposes.  I use CUDA with my GTX 460, but unlike windows, x won't boot unless I disable the onboard card02:38
gohdani2iot: it should be fine under most circumstances.02:39
szalcan Ardour run w/o JACK?  because installing JACK should modify limits.conf automatically (it did here)02:40
hamneggaThe point is to use the bleeding edge kernel, not download and install the ubuntu package source manually.  Jeez02:42

TML-prvPardon if this seems like a silly question, but I'm more comfortable on Debian than Ubuntu, and I can't seem to find the Apache debug symbols on Ubuntu - on debian, it'd be in apache2-dbg, but natty at least seems to have no such package03:04

ChogyDanledjo: can I see your dmesg from when you plug in the device?03:07
edbianfission6: I don't remember the exact benchmarks (nor do I know what number karmic is and what release comes after it).  I doubt you'll notice more memory consumption unless you have memorized how much ram you are typically using for different activites03:07

sirdanHello. I'm trying to figure out why my wireless insn't working. I've tried to follow directions on the help boards, but I'm very new to this OS. In fact, I can't even seem to find out what wireless card I have. Suggestions?03:07
edbianfission6: You can run things while the upgrade runs.  You might notice some strangeness but a restart (or IRC help) can fix anything that drops up03:07
szalfission6: Karmic is dead, so it's definitely worth it03:07
edbianfission6: It's worth it because it's fun and exciting.  Also, karmic will eventually die and no longer be supported.03:08
fission6let me give it a go03:08
stercorL1nuxRules: I would look for the /dev/sd*1 file and mount -t ntfs /dev/sd*1 /somedirectory03:08

ttuttlehey guys, I just finished installing 11.04, and apparently managed to screw up the lvm-on-dm-crypt setup, because it dumps me into an initramfs shell and I have to cryptsetup and vgchange -a y manually04:24

hoverbearHey all, I've got a fresh ubuntu-server installation on this laptop (Don't ask) and I need some help getting my intel wireless card working. It has an in-kernel driver intel ultimate-n 3000.04:26

ttuttlehoverbear: that "should" work with the stock iwlagn driver.04:26
DatzHi, is there no ServerLimit directive in ubuntu's apache2 configs?04:26
hoverbearttuttle: I can't ping google.com unfortunately.04:26
ttuttlehoverbear: what does iwconfig say?04:27

ZykoticK9hoverbear, wicd has some sort of cli or ncurse option04:28
latagoreI can't mount my windows partition, though the partition is not mounted and the directory is not busy04:28
hoverbearZykoticK9: Sadly, wicd is not installed by default and I have no repo access04:29
ttuttlehoverbear: do you have wpa_supplicant?04:29
latagoreGSF1200S: If you use ps or another program, you can filter for all of your processes04:29
ZykoticK9hoverbear, manual it is then ;)  hope you don't use wpa, or already have wpa supplicant installed.  Good luck.04:29
DatzHi, is there no ServerLimit directive in ubuntu's apache2 configs?04:29
hoverbearttuttle: That I do have. I couldn't remember the name... Thanks I'll take a look04:29
ttuttlehoverbear: sure04:30
ttuttlehoverbear: there should be a config file /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf; you should be able to configure it in there and get wpa_supplicant to connect for you04:30
latagoreGSF1200S: If you do that, then near the very end, you should be able to figure out what is the last process to terminate04:30

ttuttleokay, you want something like "network { ssid="foo" key_mgmt=WPA-PSK psk="passphrase" }04:34
hoverbearttuttle: Right04:34
ttuttlehoverbear: on different lines, of course04:34
ttuttleI think the last thing I do with this ubuntu install04:35

pvh_sahey there, is there a commandline tool that does what font viewer's 'install font' does? i have a bunch (dozens) of fonts and i don't want to have to click-install all of them. thanks04:36
dr_willisghufran: i think thats a bug in the monitors tool. I recall someone else having to   'kill' a process to make them go away. Perhaps xkill can do it04:36
ttuttlethat gives me 0 debugging information.04:36

DriversBrokenI'm back with yet another dead drive04:37
hoverbearttuttle: I'm seeing in this guide I should have a /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf, but it's not there be default, has it been moved orneed it be manually created?04:37
GSF1200Slatagore: that may not help though- the desktop stays active and responsive for 30 seconds, and THEN everything shuts down- those processes would still be running04:37
dr_willisttuttle:  tried the options 'nomodeset noquiet nosplash' to see messages.04:37
DriversBrokenThis is annoying... except this time, the error seems pretty obvious04:37

dr_willisttuttle:  shift key shold show it04:38
DriversBrokenWhat do I do about that?04:38
DriversBrokenThat's fdisk -l output, btw04:38
GSF1200Sive tried using other login managers (xdm, lightdm), but it does the same. Has to be something in the desktop04:38
latagoreGSF1200S: Well you will know the processes that refuse to terminate and then you can sort through them04:38
dr_willisI always set grub to never hide04:38
GSF1200Slatagore: is there a program which shows what has been sent sigterm but isnt terminating? Im assuming at gdm logout, sigterm is sent to all processes, then sigkill is sent to any that refuse to terminate04:39
ttuttle...why does the version of unetbootin I just installed not offer me the version of ubuntu I installed it from?04:40
latagoreGSF1200S: I'm sure you know more about Linux than I do; can't help you there04:40

ejoIf you have a program that you're about to run on a whole set of files, and the program's default output is to stdout, and it doesn't have a "save to save file" option... what's the shell lingo to direct its output back to each input file, when you run it on an entire directory?  Can that be a one-liner or does it end up needing to be a shell script with a loop?05:10

alexleonu just need ctrl alt f105:19

Capsodanileigh79: I just want to create a bootable usb05:21
vexati0nDriversBroken, it's like living until age 85, only then to discover sex.05:21
danileigh79Capso: it also gives you option to create live usb05:21
DriversBrokenvexati0n:  She actually thinks that linux broke her comp, to be perfectly serious.05:22
vexati0nDriversBroken - i know she's serious about that. it isn't her fault, she has no idea how computers work. to her, it seems logical. we know better, but there'll be no convincing her of that. this is why you never say the word "Linux" to an inexperienced/non-technical user.05:23
vexati0nsaying "Linux" to someone like that will always scare them, even if nothing bad happens.05:23

latagoremrdeb: Or make a cleaner user interface for the lesser computer users05:24
latagoreDriversBroken: The mom thing :D05:24
vexati0nmrdeb, i'm all for overcoming that ignorance, but the FOSS community should face the fact that they have lost the battle over the word Linux. none of the successfull linux-based products out there say "Linux" anywhere but in very tiny print at the back of a technical manual nobody will ever read.05:25
DriversBrokenlatagore:  oh lol05:25
DriversBrokenvexati0n:  it's partly warranted, because this thing where linux = terminal still exists.05:25
danileigh79Capso: I used Universal-USB-Installer.exe from pendrivelinux.com05:25
DriversBrokenwhen we have a disk error, we dont' say install this or that.  We say "Open up the terminal and go sudo fdisk -l!"05:26
vexati0nDriversBroken, Linux is a great OS, but the FUD has overpowered the community's ability to describe it favorably.05:26
DriversBrokenAnd when we want to clone something, we go dd as;dlkfj;asdlkjfa;skdjf;asfasl;dkfj;sdl options before that05:26

KM0201DriversBroken: if you're running ubuntu 11.4 in vbox.. 3D sucks in Vbox, and thats probably why it crashed05:28
vexati0nKM0201, i'm not crying i was just expounding on my deep philosophical beliefs that Linux is at a popular disadvantage because of the intensity and length of the FUD pushed against it.05:28

westzi just had what i think would be a glorious idea... could i use freenode's nickserv to login to a blog? i'm designing a tech blog, and i thought it would be helpful if users could use their freenode ID's to login to the site and leave comments05:49
DriversBrokenagh of course /media is owned by root.  And windows would ask for permission instead of going "no!  He is not allowed to press zat button!  I will not allow him to press zat button."05:50

bazhangwestz, then #ubuntu-offtopic , its not an ubuntu support issue05:52

d_atharva_hi...just started kdenlive.but at the startup of it gives me message "File '/home/d_atharva/%i' is not readable"...Any idea abt how to fix it ?05:53
aciculad_atharva_: find the file in the filebrowser and enable read permissions?05:54
wells5878anyone in here know anything about ubuntu + apache?05:55
aciculawells5878: yes, but you should just ask your question really05:55

wells5878i'm using php as a cgi module on an apache server, having issues with mod_rewrite only working on basic things05:56
wells5878essentially not working at all -- but it IS running and .htaccess is being read05:57
wells5878all rewrites give me error 50005:57
d_atharva_acicula : Not working dude..05:57
wells5878bare directories without an index also give 500 instead of the typical 'forbidden'05:57

aciculawells5878: are you sure the rewrite rules are correct?05:58
aciculaand/or what corresponding log errors do you see05:58
wells5878they work on a local WAMP install and on another webserver. no log errors even when i turn logging on at level 905:58
wells5878rewrite.log is empty -- 0b05:59
aciculad_atharva_: eh does logging into the normal ubuntu work?05:59
wells5878apache error.log shows nothing relevant05:59
aciculaare youm sure mod_rewrite is loaded? think apache has a something_ctl binary that lets you list currently loaded modules?06:00
wells5878it doesn't show as running when i do apache2ctl -l -- but if i try to enable it or define in my httpd.conf it says it's already running06:01
d_atharva_acicula : i didnt get your question..06:01
aciculad_atharva_: my question is can you log into ubuntu, ie do you get the error when you login or is it just the program that gives you an error06:02
d_atharva_acicula : No..just the program...06:03
aciculawells5878: idk, but this has a nice 4 step checklist http://www.webune.com/forums/how-to-fix-mod-rewrite-500-internal-server-error-on-htaccess-file-apache-t718.html06:03
maquishi all. i am running maverick, and just tried installing the nvidia driver using "additional drivers" (under administration). After that, the computer would start up into a non-gui purple "Ubuntu" screen, then go to an all-purple screen and hang there. I ssh'd in and uninstalled nvidia-current and changed my xorg.conf to an old one (I think it was the automatic backup from "additional drivers"), and now it starts to a gui purple screen th06:03
aciculad_atharva_: then you just have some weird filepermissions06:03
d_atharva_acicula : so what's the solution ?06:04
aciculad_atharva_: try to change the fileproperties of the file it complains about, or try moving it to anothre location altogether and see if it will start then06:04
wells5878@acicula tried that earlier, no dice06:04
aciculad_atharva_: find the file in your filebrowser, right click it, select properties, make sure that read is toggled for your user. if its a directory that the program complains about you will need to to toggle it as execute06:04
aciculamaquis: you can reset i think by purging the nvidia drivers and removing the xorg.conf altogether06:05
maquisacicula: mind refreshing my mind on how to find all the nvidia drivers?  should i just remove everything aptitude sees installed that has nvidia in the name?06:06
aciculathough the startup image you see at boot is handled a little differently06:06
aciculamaquis: eh ill have a google but i think apt-get purge nvidia-* should do it06:06
maquisacicula: i'll do that. thanks!06:07
maquiseverything in that looks reasonable. thanks a ton for the help! :)06:08
d_atharva_acicula : did everything as you told..but still not working.06:08
aciculad_atharva_: then i dont know why your program will not work, sorry :/06:08
Cyddanyone here live in the GTA?06:08
d_atharva_acicula : hmm..ok06:09
aciculawells5878: did you check if ctl lists the module? can you try with a really simple rewrite rule as a testcase?06:09
rwwCydd: As you've been told repeatedly in the past, #ubuntu is not for chit-chat.06:09
Cyddyou guys are no fun06:09

wells5878acicula: i'm not familiar with ctl06:10
aciculaapachewe apachectl06:10
wells5878oh dir06:10
aciculawells5878: i have no idea wether those are correct or not, again, write a trivial rewrite rule and try that. if that works you know where to look06:12
aciculawells5878: if you remove the Options -Index , does it work then?06:13
wells5878trivial rewrites do work06:13
wells5878i tried RewriteRule   ^test\.html$  test.php [R,L]06:13
aciculawells5878: k, then its your .htaccess file thats malformed then06:14
aciculacan you try it without the -Index06:14
wells5878no change without the -index06:15
wells5878even if those rewrite rules are incorrect, it still doesn't explain why a directory without an index would give me a 500 error06:16
aciculait gives you a 500 error because of the .htaccess file, whats in it does not really factor into that i guess?06:17
aciculatry the htaccess line by line?06:17
wells5878removing the htaccess file altogether still results in a 500 error on empty directories06:18
aciculaah like so06:18
wells5878due to this, and the fact that the htaccess works on a WAMP server, it tells me this is a server misconfiguration.06:18
wells5878and i'm bleeding out my ears trying to figure out what the hell is wrong06:18

aciculawells5878: yes. ok so file serving works, cgi works. some htacces file work, but this particular one does not nor does having an directory listed. Seems the issue revolves around the Index06:31

aciculawells5878: then im out of ideas06:36
yangmengi can't open the system in ubuntu 11.0406:37
aciculalatagore: that usually means you already have it mounted under another directory. the filebrowser usually lists any mounted drives in the left pane of the filebrowser window06:38
latagoreacicula: It is not mounted; it's not listed under mount06:38
aciculalatagore: how are you mounting it?06:39
latagoreacicula: mount /dev/sda3 /mnt06:39
latagoreacicula: I've tried mounting it to different folders06:40
aciculalatagore: k, no problems there, the most common cause is an unclean windows shutdown. rebooting to windows and shutting it down again should fix that.06:40
aciculalatagore: there might be something helpfull in dmesg, dmesg | tail to view the last few lines06:40
latagoreacicula: Well that would be great and all if I could get it to show up in grub06:41
latagoreacicula: nothing in dmesg either06:41

aciculathe procedure usually involves using the windows cd in recoveyr mode or your recovery cd. Means you will have to use the ubuntu livecd afterwards to fix grub again though06:54

vishnushello everyone ... Im using Ubuntu 11.04 64bit. i have ZTE AC8700 data card with me. I have the the dialer driver for 32bit. its not letting me install it in my system saying wrong architecture. any solution? problem is i can access net via mobile broadband connection. but is super slow. It works very fast without disconnection in Windows. im currently in Windows coz the net is not stable....07:51

LilleCarlkalinka, none of the apt commands? because when a installation hungs up then you need to repair some index or smth07:52
kalinkaI posted a question to msttcorefonts package maintainer in lauchpad, still no luck07:52

ratclike ultra vnc10:24
KM0201!vnc | whowantstolivefo  there's a lot of options10:25
ubottuwhowantstolivefo  there's a lot of options: VNC is a protocol for remote desktop. https://help.ubuntu.com/community/VNCOverSSH describes how to use it securely.  It works best over fast connections, otherwise look at !FreeNX10:25
whowantstoliveforatc: if you go http://www.netsupportmanager.com/features.asp  this site, you can understand what i want, i am newbie , i have no problem in my network, i need only tools manage and connect clients, and chat with any client or connect send file etc.10:25
ratcnetsupportsmanager does has a linux version10:26
whowantstoliveforatc:  i know, this is why i ask, is there any tool like this.10:26
KM0201whowantstolivefo: that page you linked to, has linux versions on their site, why don't you use it?10:28
whowantstolivefoKM0201:  i dont want to pay any licence. this is why i turned to linux, i delete all microsoft products from our office.10:28
ratci used realvnc , works good for me, but i don't think it has all those features listed there.10:29
KM0201whowantstolivefo: ok.. thats fine, just didn't make sense yu're asking for a progra "like...." and the program you linked to, has a linux version, but that makes sense10:29
KM0201whowantstolivefo: can't you use the "built in" remote desktop tool in Ubuntu?10:30
whowantstolivefoKM0201: how can i do this ? built in ? i am sorry as i say before, i am newbie :)10:31

KM0201whowantstolivefo: go to System/         / Remote Desktop Connections, and configure remote desktop  (I can't remember if its uner system/admin or system/preferences)10:32
whowantstolivefoKM0201:  yes, now everyone works great, i was using kerio firewall, i kicked this and now i use pfsense.10:32
KM0201whowantstolivefo: but honestly (don't know what your network does).. if you need a secure connection, ubuntu's remote desktop utility, is  not what you want to use... you really need to look at a secure ssh connection10:33

KM0201oh, work in progress10:41
the_misfitwork in progress10:41
KM0201i agree...10:41
the_misfittheres some visceral overreaction to it10:42
KM0201but frankly, Unity sucks... i cannot get used to that crappy interface, after seeing Gnome 3, i see it only getting worse.. so i had to make a change.. start getting used to something else... cuz i will not use KDE>10:42
KM0201the_misfit: why would someone want a "netbook interface" on a 21in monitor?10:42
the_misfitKM0201: good point10:43
KM0201the_misfit: the interface, makes sense on netbooks, and probably for some users, even on some laptops... but on a desktop?  it just looks ridiculous.10:43
the_misfitKM0201: its coming along though, read the unity report (weekly, lol) on omgbuntu10:44
KM0201the_misfit: see, the thing is.. 11.04, unity is obviously very rough... 11.10, it'll probably be a bit better, but by 11.10, they'r egoing to be trying to implement gnome 3... which is liable to make 11.10 suck pretty hard to... my point is, ubuntu may not see a halfway decent release again, until 12.04, maybe 12.1010:45
the_misfitdunno, ubuntu is going for mainstream usability pretty much, and thats the whole point10:45
KM0201the_misfit: i think Ubuntu is trying to be a Mac... which is the wrong direction to go, IMO.10:45
sktn07please help me out:   who set irc channel topic ?...or how to set it?10:46

the_misfitsktn07: operators set the irc topic10:46
KM0201sktn07: why on earth would you want to set the topic?... if you don't know how to do it, you have no business changing it.10:46

Scribbled2xWhere could a find a table that breaks down the version / name for each distribution?  For example, how do I know what packages are for oneric versus lucid or one of the other distributions?  I tried to follow the Live CD Customization and somehow installed perl for oneric but everything else for natty << yea donno what happened there?11:00
the_misfitScribbled2x: do you mean the packages that came with the CD for each version of Ubuntu?11:02
the_misfitScribbled2x: something like this ? http://distrowatch.com/table.php?distribution=ubuntu11:03
Scribbled2xthe_misfit - sorry no, what I meant was I would like to install oneric without a graphical interface, I tried this but somehow installed components to natty --11:05
the_misfitScribbled2x: oh, like a makeshift custom distro of oneric11:05
Scribbled2xexactly -11:06
Scribbled2xI need to liveCD to perform one specific function - no installer, no X, blah blah blah - but I need it to run a web server, htdig, perl, and all of that.  The problem was that I installed perl for one version of ubuntu and the rest for another version of ubuntu11:07
Scribbled2xprolly cause it was a retarded moment in my life :|11:07

BluesKaj11.10 is  oneiric11:10
Scribbled2xthank you11:10
Scribbled2xone last question: sorry if I driving u guys nutz.  I want to do this live CD - made the first one working, but problems came in because I used wrong dbootstrap .... (i think).  How do I do this so that I am using all files for the correct version?  I mean where exactly was my retard moment so that I don't make the same mistake?11:12
BluesKajto do a live cd , what do you mean, Scribbled2x?11:14
epzil0nScribbled2x: one advise is that you check that you have a md5sum match of the iso-file you downloaded and then burn it at slowest speed and do not use the computer for anything else11:14
epzil0nScribbled2x: then when you boot from the live-cd you will se an option in the bootmenu.. check if media is ok or something, then if all fine you shouldn't have any problem or at least not with the install media ;)11:15
Scribbled2xBlueskaj: I started following instructions for Live CD Customization, during the process it talked about doing things for the various versions.  My version of choice what oneric, but somehow (unwittingly) I used components of natty.  While I could never ask anyone here to know what I did, I am asking if there is a way to download all of the packages for oneric, change my sources.list file to point at my hard drive, and guarentee that I 11:17

Scribbled2xepzil0n : the actual creation part was no problem, the iso is fully functional and working  (kinda got lucky there); the problem came in when I went to install other applications onto the iso when I used applications that were intended for a different version11:18
geirhaengrxyz: It'll take effect immediately, but you *must* make the same change in /etc/hosts, or sudo breaks.11:19
epzil0nScribbled2x: ok so you wanted to make a custom lie-cd?11:19

Dr_Willis|2ledjo:  if a usb device when plugged in - does not get a /dev/sdXX entry assigned to it.. then theres somthing wrong with the kernel, or drivers, or device.11:46
aciculabliket_: ulimit shows you the limits11:47
Dr_Willis|2ledjo:  unless its some sort of special usb device.  - i cant think of ny usb storage tht dosent use sdXX11:47
Gryllidavishaltelangre, ok, `sudo nano /etc/resolv.conf` and pastebin the file contents, please. This file is related to DNS and may be broken for you.11:47
vishaltelangreMrsB: okay11:47
ledjothose are 2 fat flashes and a psp that all worked untill yesterday, i.e. they were automounted. then yesterday they wouldn't automount anymore. I could see that they were  using dev sdc1 so I could mount them phisically but since yesterday evening that doesnt work any more, so I can lsusb see them..11:47
aciculabliket_: they are set in /etc/security/ somewhere11:47
bliket_acicula: is there any way to tell the current usage?11:47
aciculabliket_: think its called limit.conf11:47
MrsBvishaltelangre: if still no good then log out and log back in again, as a last resort you could reboot. It sounds like you have a 'windows friendly' router11:47
Dr_Willis|2ledjo:  does 'sudo fdisk -l' show them?11:47
aciculabliket_: i would guess for filehandlers you can look with lsof11:48
Dr_Willis|2ledjo:  then you got a deeper issue..  when you plug them -  wait a moment or two. then check 'dmesg' output..  do dmesg a few times  a few sec apart. and see if any info on the device shows up11:48
ledjoi already did that and showed it to u11:49
vishaltelangreGryllida: http://pastebin.com/haMLjLAf11:49
vishaltelangreMrsB: okay, please a few secons11:49
aciculabliket_: also i think ulimits applies per process11:49
bliket_acicula: /usr/sbin/lsof |wc -l      outputs:398511:50
aciculabliket_: lsof lists every open file, not for just one process11:50
Dr_Willis|2ledjo:  i just got off work. :)  from what ive heard so far.. its pointong to either a bad usb port. or cable. or some very weird kernel issue..  a interesting test would be to see if a ubuntu live cd, and some other disrto (like tinycorelinux) could activate the device. IF one of those work.. check the  'lsmod' output to see what modules are getting loaded.11:50
ledjoand in dmesg this: [ 4912.748042] usb 1-1: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 811:51

ViderizeHello, I've been using Ubuntu for a while now (installed with wubi). Today, when I booted Ubuntu; It told me that something is corrupted/missing and told me to do 'chkdsk /r' in Windows. So I did this and rebooted to Windows and again to Ubuntu, but It gave me the same screen again.16:36
Ceno3xikonia: now I installed kubuntu 11.04, and it's not good. I installed vbox, imported my VM, installed the latest guest additions, but my system freezes if I try to do a heavy disk operation like copying a large file, or installing a large program16:36
ikoniaCeno3x: ok, why do you think that is a kernel bug ?16:37
ViderizeAlso my version is 10.04 Lucid16:37

Ceno3xikonia: because the only difference between ubuntu 10.04 and 11.04 from vbox's perspective is the kernel, and there's a big warning saying that due to a kernel bug running an ext4 guest on a ext4 host can cause problems. the warning was always there, but I'm only witnessing any effect now16:38
werwaffelActionParsnip: maybe some things i say sound weird... im german and im trying the best to translate good ;)16:39

Syd23ohk bye16:41

ActionParsnipwerwaffel: not sure, seems to be a thing I found. Are you plugging an d unplugging the wired connection?16:42
ikoniaCeno3x: ok - so why do you think that bug is fixed in the later kernel ?16:43
Ceno3xguntbert: probably not. but it's probably a kernel thing, don't you agree?16:43
Ceno3xikonia: there's only one way to find out...16:43
ikoniaCeno3x: and the kernel is not the only difference, the libraries that run the OS are different, the binarys that make up the virtual machine are different16:43
guntbertCeno3x: I cannot guess :)16:43
ActionParsnipCeno3x: could try the 3.x kernel16:43

guntbertdageriv: sort them prior to diffing...16:44
Ceno3xikonia: indeed, it's just a hunch. that would be easily verifiable if there was a kernel package available... I was going straight to kvm, but I had that idea16:44
sudokillkoffeehaus, not sure, maybe usr share icons16:44
ikoniaCeno3x: a hunch - you've not done any research on it and you want upgrade a core component of the OS16:45

ikoniaCeno3x: ok - so here is one suggestion to try - you believe this is a known bug between an ext4 vm and a ext4 host, change your host or your guest to ext3, or xfs and try it16:51
dee27i try to remove the old nick16:51
ikoniaCeno3x: that will guide you towards or away from that bug16:51

scorchgeekanyone know what this message means? Sound Juicer could not read the track listing on this CD.16:52

ActionParsnipwerwaffel: ok reboot then run:   dmesg > ~/Desktop/dmesg.txt; gedit ~/Desktop/dmesg.txt    what is output?16:53
werwaffelActionParsnip: okay i'm going to reboot and make a pastebin after....   moment16:53
Ceno3xikonia: not exactly. there's a different bug in running virtualbox on an ext4 host. I believe it may be somehow related, but it's not the same bug.  Is there any way to migrate the ext4fs to ext3 without reinstaling the whole system?16:53
tilerenderingouch - my root pwd seems to be gone16:54
sudokillCeno3x, you can mount ext4 as ext316:54
tilerenderingany idea how to recover that16:54

guntbert!root | tilerendering16:54
ubottutilerendering: Do not try to guess the root password, that is impossible. Instead, realise the truth... there is no root password. Then you will see that it is 'sudo' that grants you access and not the root password. Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo16:54
scorchgeektilerendering: well, usually in ubuntu you don't have a root password...16:54
Ceno3xsudokill: really? by changing fstab? how?16:54
ikoniaCeno3x: not really,16:54
ikoniaCeno3x: it's still an ext4 file system16:54
tilerenderingwell but... I cant figure the pwd for sudo either :/16:54
ikoniaCeno3x: ok - lets try a different approach16:55
ViderizeIt's your own password16:55
Picitilerendering: hint, its your password.16:55
scorchgeektilerendering: it's your own16:55
rwwYou can only mount ext4 partitions as ext3 if they don't use extents. It's probably using extents.16:55
scorchgeekif you don't know your own password, well, that's another problem :)16:55
ikoniaCeno3x: instead of doing a wget, do something like a large file copy or an scp see if that causes the io problem you see16:55
Ceno3xikonia: formating the drive is my last resort, my host took forever to install properly, my guest is running a custom real time kernel that I have to compile manualy again16:55
tilerenderingscorchgeek: the problem is, I dont have my own pwd anymore :/16:55
werwaffelActionParsnip: i just tried to use dmesg > ~ ... dmesg.txt wasnt found16:55
sudokillCeno3x, realtime kernel? why16:55
guntberttilerendering: do you own the box?16:56
werwaffelActionParsnip: Should i reboot?16:56
ActionParsnipwerwaffel: dmesg > ~/dmesg.txt16:56
Ceno3xikonia: it does, I've tried multiple ways of trying to get the 1.2gb file into the system16:56
ubottukvm is the preferred virtualization approach in Ubuntu. For more information see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/KVM16:56
Ceno3xsudokill: I'm writing a thesis on real-time operating systems16:56
scorchgeektilerendering: if you boot in recovery mode you should get a root prompt with no password16:56
ubottuAs you can see, this is a large channel. If you're speaking to someone in particular, please put their nickname in what you say (use !tab), or else messages get lost and it becomes confusing :)16:56

tilerenderingI dont want to reboot before saving everything, which means I need su ;/16:56
sudokillCeno3x, you should be able to save the .config file anyway so you wont have to redo the kernel16:56

tilerenderingomfg I seem to have reset the password last time but dont remember to what ://17:00
scorchgeekyeah, me neither :D17:00
ikoniaCeno3x: on virutal machine guests, time is provided by the host, and it's basically dependant on cpu cycles issuing clock updates, you're running a real time kernel on the guest, in your opinion is it possible the io issue is due to a time (not time as in clock) loop being created between io write acknowledgements and the real time update stuck waiting for the next free cyle17:00
ActionParsnipscorchgeek: yes do, makes you more autonomous17:00
Picibullgard4: a quick apt-cache search says that it has a few packages that can do dlna17:00
ikoniaCeno3x: that's a bit of a scrappy way of explaining it, do you follow what I'm saying17:00
rwwbullgard4: minidlna is not in currently-supported versions of Ubuntu. It will be in 11.10.17:01
Picirww: thanks17:01
Viderizesudokill: but are you albe to help me? :P17:01
Snake__Hi guys what s up17:01
ikoniaCeno3x: eg: the real time clock depends on very accurate timings, by default a vm will not give out accurate timing17:01

Ceno3xikonia: I tried with the stock kernel from ubuntu 10.04 and the problem was the same, so I don't think it's related17:01

Snake__when in the terminal17:02
ikoniaCeno3x: so your guest is ubuntu 10.04 ?17:02
Snake__inputfile is what???17:02

szal!enter | Snake__17:02
ubottuSnake__: Please try to keep your questions/responses on one line. Don't use the "Enter" key as punctuation!17:02
ikoniaCeno3x: the reason I'm dubious on this is that if there was a problem with the 11.04 kernel I'd expect many people to be logging a bug that they can't use it with 10.04 guests, but they are no17:03
ActionParsnipYatora: is it slow in all players?17:03

werwaffelActionParsnip: http://pastebin.com/kbaN6TQY17:04
Ceno3xikonia: i had a tough time phrasing the problem in google to get related information. How would you confirm what you just said? go to launchpad and search the bugs?17:04
bullgard4Pici: I did a quick search using Synaptic before I posted here. I also found that a few packages are DLNA compliant. But a DLNA compliant server is not among them. --  I notice that <rww>  has responded with an outlook to Ubuntu 11.10.17:04

ikoniaCeno3x: that's not "fact" but it's the norm if there was a problem of that size17:05
Snake__If I m in the terminal and the code is blablablabla <inputfile> blablablabla what is input file???17:05
ikoniaSnake__: please start making sense17:05
dr_willisSnake__:  the name of the file you want to use for input...17:05
YatoraActionParsnip: GL was the only one giving a smooth playback, but caused problems with object over video17:05
ikoniaSnake__: ask a proper question with a proper example17:05
smwtilerendering, that would be a security risk17:06
Ceno3xikonia: yeah, I believe you, I was just asking because I was trouble searching about it and it ocurred that maybe I should've gone to launchpad17:06
dr_willisSnake__:  like    'insert  <yournamehere>17:06
tilerenderingso there is now way ?17:06
tilerenderingno way I mean ?17:06
Picitilerendering: Just reset your password17:06
ikoniaCeno3x: it's a reasonable question - I did check launchpad after your second post on the matter17:06
tilerenderingwith passwd ?17:06
Picitilerendering: passwd17:06
tilerenderingthen it asks me my current password.17:06
tilerenderingwhich I dont know.17:06
rwwtilerendering: correct. passwd is coded to require your current password.17:06
smwtilerendering, every option involves you either su-ing to root or physical access17:06
dr_willistilerendering:  you will have to use safe mode or a live cd to set a new password.17:06
tilerenderingholy omfg crap17:06

ikoniatilerendering: control the language17:07
tilerenderingoh my god.17:07
netgeneSo any ideas on how to install specific versions of php.. ?17:07
rwwtilerendering: this is an obvious security precaution: if you could change your password without supplying the current one, someone could change your password if you left yourself logged in17:07
tilerenderingI have no physical access to the instance17:07
Snake__ok let s say I recorded something with my camera and I want to encode it  to another format17:07
smwtilerendering, instance? as in vps?17:07
tilerenderingamazon ec217:07
Snake__is input file the file of the video I recorded with my camera?17:07
ikoniatilerendering: you can request a password reset17:07
Ceno3xikonia: maybe the problem is me importing the appliance? I'm gonna try to install stock ubuntu 10.04  on a new one and see if the problem persists, the installation is rather quick17:07
smwtilerendering, of course you have "physical" access!17:07
tilerenderingikonia: wheren and how ?17:08
ActionParsnipwerwaffel: I can suggest trying a different wireless channel, may help17:08
dr_willisSnake__:  the program reads the inputfile and outputs to the new file.. yes..17:08
ikoniaCeno3x: I'm not going anywhere, let me know17:08
ikoniatilerendering: through the amazon support resources17:08
smwtilerendering, is it ebs backed?17:08
Snake__ok thanks17:08
werwaffelActionParsnip: how?17:08
tilerenderingsmw - yes, but hand-mounted ebs-volume, root is not ebs17:08
ActionParsnipwerwaffel: change it in your router17:08
smwtilerendering, in that case, you are screwed :-)17:08
tilerenderingso rebooting without making sure that everything is unmounted properly before that is not possible17:08
Ceno3xikonia: ok, thx for the help, I'm downloading the iso now17:09

YatoraIs it possible to downgrade Natty?17:30
rww!downgrade | Yatora17:30
ubottuYatora: Attempting to downgrade to an older Ubuntu version is explicitly not supported and may break your system.17:30
ikoniaCeno3x: I appreciate that's not the best diagnosis,17:30
Ceno3xikonia: hm, with ext4 the VM was aborted during the formating, does this happen in ram? at some point it has to be commited to disk at least. As a side note, I'm also passing pcie_aspm=force as a boot parameter17:30
Ceno3xikonia: lol I've been at this since yesterday, you still think trying a different kernel is useless?17:31
ikoniaCeno3x: it doesn't happen "in ram" but think about it, your machine is a machine running in the ram of a guest, which has ram allocated to it from the ram of a guest17:31
ikoniaCeno3x: I don't think this is a kernel problem in honesty17:31
ikoniaCeno3x: that doesn't mean I'm right, but there is nothing you've said that points at a kernel issue beyond the hard lock - which makes me lean more towards a hardware issue at this time17:32

safirewhy does aptitude think the latest version of firefox is 3.6?17:34
Ceno3xikonia: the thing is it's related to filesystem operation, there might be some weird thing going on there you see.  Jumping to a hardware problem is I think much more far-fetched, everything was fine 4 days ago when it was a 10.04 host instead of 11.04...17:34
rwwsafire: which version of Ubuntu are you using?17:34
ikoniaCeno3x: I don't disagree, but a hard lock is unlikley, a kernel issue would panic/dump normally, hard lock is normally linked to the hardware (at a very generic level)17:34

ubottusafire: Packages in Ubuntu may not be the latest. Ubuntu aims for stability, so "latest" may not be a good idea. Post-release updates are only considered if they are fixes for security vulnerabilities, high impact bug fixes, or unintrusive bug fixes with substantial benefit. See also !backports, !sru, and !ppa.17:35

ubottuLAMP is an acronym for Linux-Apache-MySQL-PHP. However, the term is often used for setups using alternative but different software, such as Perl or Python instead of PHP, and Postgres instead of MySQL.

ubottusafire: I am only a bot, please don't think I'm intelligent :)17:38
rwwsafire: because as the first factoid says, we don't generally upgrade to new major versions of software after release, to prevent introducing bugs or functionality changes17:38

shorttechany suggestions?18:22
Morphjeshorttech: openswan18:22
Morphjeor are you looking for the client part ?18:22
NaSSiM`hey all18:23
Picishorttech: If you're looking for a client, and you use network-manager, then network-manager-vpnc will work18:23
toothpickoCean  sudo dpkg --configure -a   doesn't do anything18:23
shorttechMorphje, Im not quite sure what you mean when you say client part. I have cisco VPn on my work laptop which is used to connect to different remote desktops18:23
NaSSiM`i have a problem installing virtualbox on ubuntu 10.04 anyone can help me i tried several times and read the docs on the net but still problem18:24
shorttechMorphje, yes I think its a client18:24
sudokillNaSSiM`, what happens?18:24
Morphjeshorttech: well are you looking for a vpn client to connect to remote vpn networks or do you want to set up a VPN yourself18:24
oCeantoothpick: if it just returns the command prompt, it has run. you're fine. You are sure your source.list don't contain any non-standard repositories?18:24
toothpickif it means anything, I did sudo apt-get install lamp-server^ in mint and it installed everything smoothly just a few day ago18:24
someluseris the partition manager in the ubuntu text installer accessible after the the system has been installed?18:24
NaSSiM`E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt-get -f install' with no packages (or specify a solution).18:24
