tioxI am having problems with my hard line to the web. I tried deleting the old wired connections I had, then trying again, failed.00:00
tioxMaybe... should I delete my wired connection and then plug my modem in? :/00:00
tioxThat sounds like it might work. BRB00:01
captwhoanyone know what serves as an xorg.conf file in Ubuntu 10.04?00:01
ubuntu___tiox: yes delete the connection and plug in the modem00:02
Daraelcaptwho: If you create one, it should work, but most of it is dynamically generated rather than read from a config file.00:02
ugly_duckok, where is the xorg.conf located now days 11.0400:02
ubuntu___ugly_duck: just search for it on the command line00:03
ugly_duckubuntu___: what a fantastic idea, why didn't i think of that already00:03
xanguaugly_duck: there s no a xorg.files , you an create one if yu want00:03
Daraelugly_duck: /etc/X11/xorg.conf - but it won't exist unless it's already been created by something overriding the auto-generated config.00:03
captwhoDarael: I'm trying to up the resolution on my desktop and the instructions that i found were to modify the xorg.conf file00:03
exutuxxorg.conf doesn't exist more from Ubuntu 8.1000:03
ugly_duckDarael: ahh... okies, thats why its not there00:04
Daraelcaptwho: Like I say, it doesn't exist until and unless something creates it for the purpose of overrides.00:04
billy2007ive plugged in a wireless usb adaptor and it isnt even reconizing it00:04
ubuntu___exutux: did you start with linux from ubuntu?00:04
exutuxif you want or need one you must create it by hand, or bu X -configure00:04
ugly_ducki install ati drivers, its changed my settings, it turns out the drivers aren't for my card, so unity wont run any mroe00:05
exutuxubuntu___: nope with debian but I use Ubuntu from 7.0400:05
captwhoexutux: is "bu X -configure" the command?00:06
captwhonever heard of that one00:06
bora_hello all00:06
ubuntu___exutux: have you used Suse?00:06
bubbles|hi00:06
Daraelcaptwho: Nope. "sudo X -configure"00:06
exutuxcaptwho: lol my bad.... was by*  X -configure00:07
bubbles|how do i update from ubuntu 10.04 to 11.04?00:07
captwholol, thanks00:07
maalacbubbles|: download the iso file and burn to dvd and then upgrade00:07
exutuxyeah sudo before and need to stop X before run command....then copy xorg,conf.new in /etc/X11/00:07
maalacbubbles|:although 11.04 is a bit buggy ..00:08
bubbles|how is it buggy?00:08
exutuxsudo cp xorg.conf.new /etc/X11/xorg.conf00:08
Daraelbubbles|: You'll have to go via 11.10. And to do that you need to change your sources settings (the update section of the Software Sources tool that you can get to from the Software Centre), so that you see "All releases" rather than just "LTS releases".00:08
captwhoexutux: sweet, thanks00:09
exutuxnp00:09
bubbles|11.10? has that been released?00:09
Daraelbubbles|: My apologies.  Typo.  I meant 10.10.00:09
bubbles|oh, ok00:09
maalacbubbles|: i can't really tell i had some bad experience and end up going to 10.1000:10
Daraelbubbles|: I can neither confirm nor deny that I am running 11.10 alpha, however.00:10
Uchiha_Itachiwhat's actually buggy about 11.04 is unity00:10
maalacbubbles|: yes i agree and its kernel issues ..00:10
Dr_Willislubuntu in 11.04 works quite well :)00:10
bubbles|so i should stay with 10.04? i'm actually only updating because i need mysql 5.500:11
Drone4fourUchiha_Itachi, yes, i agree that Unity on 11.04 is buggy...that's why i switched to xfce00:11
kiichiroquick question, a lot of my files became read only, I can change them back. But is there a way to select an entire folder and make it so all the files and subfolders+files are set to read and write in one command00:11
bora_hey i hawe a question. in ubuntu 11.10 GUI is 100% Unity or as a 11.04 is a session gnome00:11
xangua!ubuntu+1 | bora_00:11
ubottubora_: Oneiric Ocelot is the codename for Ubuntu 11.10 - Support only in #ubuntu+100:11
bora_sorry i'am polish and my english is bad00:11
maalackiichiro: try this chmod -R 777 (name of the folder)00:11
Daraelbubbles|: It's worth checking for a PPA with the package you need first.00:11
xanguabubbles|: or compile00:12
Daraelbora_: Gnome3 is allegedly to be available.  It doesn't, however, work for me right now.00:12
exutuxmaalac: isn't a good idea set 777 permission in that way00:12
kiichirothank you so much00:12
bubbles|hm.. i'm not sure if compiling is a good choice00:12
Uchiha_Itachichmod -R 666 /folder00:12
bora_yes i know it a codename but i quest about a GUI00:12
bubbles|the ppa is this one: https://launchpad.net/~clint-fewbar/+archive/mysql but it's for 10.1000:12
bora_thanks00:12
Uchiha_Itachi660 would be much better00:12
exutuxdepends00:13
kiichiroyou seriously just got my server up 10x quicker thank you so much maalac00:13
maalacexutux: sorry my bad, i assume its just an ordinary folder..00:13
Daraelbora_: The bot-comment was to suggest that you should talk about Oneiric only in #ubuntu+1, rather than here in #ubuntu.  That's all.00:13
exutuxmaalac: isn't a good idea too give permission to all-world :)00:13
garfielddoes any one here use and game emulators?00:14
Darael!anyone | garfield00:14
ubottugarfield: A high percentage of the first questions asked in this channel start with "Does anyone/anybody..." Why not ask your next question (the real one) and find out? See also !details, !gq, and !poll.00:14
garfieldparticularly Xmess00:14
maalacexutux: ok. i know. :)00:14
maalacgarfield: i do. Have you tried the ps2 emulator?00:15
garfieldmaalac: no havent gottden to it yet, Ive downloaded pcsx2 though00:15
garfieldmaalac: Im using gelide, but xmess doesnt work00:15
maalacgarfield: me too. but i haven't configured it yet. but my friend got it worknig and  he is playing ps2 games00:16
garfieldnice00:16
garfieldIm gonna pastebin the error output, and hope that someone can help00:16
maalacgarfield: xmess this is new to me..i'll try that ..00:16
bubbles|hm.. if i compile mysql myself, how do i make sure that package dependencies don't break?00:17
DaraelGot an interesting one here.  Attempting to use the alternate CD to install (I want to fiddle with things, and stuff), but said CD leaves the backlight on the display off.  The brightness function-keys do nothing.  The display is unreadable without any backlight.  Ideas?00:17
twI'm trying to use dhclient-exit-hooks.d.  I've tried putting my script file in /etc/dhcp/dhclient-exit-hooks.d and in /etc/dhcp3/dhclient-exit-hooks.d.  According to the man page, it should be in the regular dhcp folder.  But as far as I can tell, nothing gets executed. The contents of my script are "touch /tmp/DHCPTEST"00:18
maalacbubbles|: yes, you might have problems in the future ..00:18
garfieldIf anyone is familiar with xmess(its in the repositories) this is the error Im getting http://pastebin.com/xCrZbwDR00:18
bubbles|so what do i do?00:18
Dannielhi, there's a correct sequence for ubuntu partitions?00:19
maalacbubbles|: just make sure that you install all the dependencies requirements.00:19
maalacgarfield: this is something to do with your Video card. have you try glxinfo00:20
bubbles|what dependencies? if i compile it myself there are no dependencies .. but things like phpmyadmin will probably still depend on the mysql-package in the repository00:20
sudokillDanniel, no00:20
garfieldmaalac: no I havent00:20
chad___I'm looking at a laptop and wondering if I'll be able to run Ubuntu on it.00:20
sudokillchad___, it probably will00:21
Dannielsudokill: but, what is recommended?00:21
Dr_Willisgarfield,  i would say the default config file is using some obsolete option.00:21
maalacbubbles|: ok. try compiling it and see if you encounter any errors00:21
Dr_Willisgarfield,  been years since i last use xmess and xmame :)00:21
sudokillDanniel, if you dont care about a seperate home partition then just use one big / and a swap if you want it00:21
garfieldglxinfo says I need to install mesa-utils00:21
garfielddoing that now00:22
Dannielsudokill: maybe it's better a separate /home00:22
Dr_Willisgarfield,  whats your video chipset?00:22
garfieldati radeon00:22
sudokillDanniel, only for reinstalls00:22
Dr_Willisgarfield,  you did insatll the fglrx drivers?00:22
sudokillDanniel, but i never bother because theres so many root files too00:22
garfieldshould I just use the proprietary driver?00:22
maalacgarfield: you need drivers for it to emulate00:22
garfieldnot manually00:22
chad___sudokill: It has both integrated intel graphics and the dedicated Nvidia 540m00:22
Dr_Willisgarfield,  if they are supported.. use the addational-drivers tool (jockey-gtk)00:22
sudokillchad___, should work fine00:23

DaraelA separate /home doesn't make reinstalls much easier any more.  The installer autodetects an existing /home and preserves it, whether it's on a separate partition or part of /.00:23
garfieldDr_Willis: so install the proprietary driver witgh additional drivers app?00:24
chad___sudokill: Alright, I was just worried because of the whole Optimus thing.00:24
maalacgarfield: use firs that came with ubuntu if its supported and later on you can download the proprietary drivers and install it ..00:24
sudokillchad___, hmm not sure about how well the kernel is00:24
sudokilli think 2.6.39 will be ok00:25
chad___sudokill: I don't believe it has Optimus enabled, but I suppose I'm just paranoid.00:25
garfieldwell I would prefer the open source driver, but if it doesnt allow the emulation, oh well00:25

Talaskinaanyone have any info on what encyption types are recoverable?00:29
sudokillTalaskina, what do you mean00:30
fishsceneBy their very nature, encryption is supposed to be non-recoverable. :S00:32
Talaskinasudokill: there are some encryption schemes out there, methods or types, that have a master key that can be recovered even without the right passphrase, specifically I am trying to find out what standards those are, like is AES effected, or twofish, or whatever. i would prefer to avoid them if possible :)00:32
sudokillno idea00:32
sudokillall i know is AES is generally fine and reliable and fast00:33
sudokilli think youd be safe with plain aes00:33
Talaskinasudokill: yes, but i am trying to find out if aes does have the recoverable part00:33
maalacgarfield: go to the ati radeon website and see if you find a driver..00:33
garfieldmaalac: ok, thanks00:34

sudokillbut if you havent got illegal stuff, just your bank details etc then dont see what you got to worry about with the government00:37
Talaskinasudokill: i saw that, you could just forget it or, idk house the actual info out of country00:37
sudokilli know00:37
sudokilli dont know how it works because anyone could easily forget a long password00:37
jeffreyfHi...I have vids I need to rotate and also convert to mpg or mp4.....any ideas??00:38

mbrochhhey folks. i am running ubuntu in a virtualbox. i need to ssh into a customers machine. the customer wants my public ssh key and my static ip. obviously i don't have a static ip. are there any ticks I could do? Maybe with dyndns or so?01:11
Chipzzzmbrochh: if you're ssh'ing into his machine you don't need a static IP01:12
afeijook! how can I proper config unity + compiz ??01:13
uRockmbrochh, how often does your ISP change your IP?I understand that the person on the other end is opening the firewall for you01:13
carandraugChipzzz, unless the costumer wants to limit ssh connections from his IP. That's probably the case01:13
mbrochhuRock, i think it changes quite often.01:13
mbrochhChipzzz, I THINK I will be connecting to an Amazon EC2 machine or so. I think those open ports for static IPs to improve security01:14

gskellig-mobilekind of panicking01:15
Chipzzzcareandraugh: good point but in that case, I don't think dyndis will help01:15
Chipzzz(dyndns)01:15
uRockI wouldn't think they'd change it more than once every 24 hours. Otherwise it would mean a lot of overhead for their routers to keep updating the routing tables01:15
th0rmbrochh: if your customer is using a whitelist for ssh access there is no way you can spoof a static IP. Either you will have to arrange a static IP with your isp, or the customer will have to settle for your public key and give up the whitelist01:16

p1l0tI can't find it though. It is different from older versions01:24
carandraugseanmc98, oh! Ouch. Sorry, haven't deal with windows in many many years. No idea how to do it. I'd say, burn the iso on a CD. Boot from a CD and during the install steps, when it asks if you want Ubuntu to take the whole disk or to install side by side with windows, choose manual, and install on the USB stick01:24
carandraugseanmc98, that gives you a small Ubuntu install that you can take anywhere (but it's no good to install on other computers)01:25

tiox(Sorry p1l0t, priorities are priorities, we'll help here if everyone in #firefox is playing online idle, hehe)01:25
invisibleknever had this problem in gentoo, switched to ubuntu for simplicity on the laptop01:26
egopinewhats the ubuntu off topic channel?01:26
tlhuntermy VPS died, and I'm in 'repair mode' trying to figure out what happened01:26
twHow do I make ubuntu figure out which network I'm attached to and update configs accordingly? My network is set up via dhcp so if there was a way to execute a post-up script, that'd be ideal.  I've tried dhclient-exit-hooks.d but as far as I can tell, those scripts don't get executed.01:26
tioxUHm, #ubuntu-offtopic01:26
wsbl-uhpd651Can anyone answer a very simple question about the UFW firewall inherent to Ubuntu?01:26
carandraugseanmc98, so you think you can do those? It's not too hard. I don't know what tool to burn a iso on windows. The ubuntu wiki talked about infrarecorder01:27
dimm0kanyone know how switch metamodes on a thinkpad notebook?01:27
edbiantlhunter: look at dmesg.  It's a great all purpose log.01:27
tlhunterit's blank too :(01:27
seanmc98carandraug: i already am creating the usb drive01:27
wsbl-uhpd651If you enable the UFW firewall once - do you have enable it again every time you log in?01:27
edbiantlhunter: Look at the old ones.  They have numbers01:27
Jordan_Utlhunter: So it currently fails to boot?01:28
seanmc98lowered the space to 2.1gb to leave some room for the iso01:28
tlhunterI think the virtualization software is doing something weird01:28
tlhunterthere aren't any dmesg.# files01:28
wsbl-uhpd651Does anyone currently on here use the UFW firewall?  I have a very simple question.01:29
centHOGGnegative01:29
Chipzzztw: check the man for interfaces... you can specify a post-up command there01:29
edbiantlhunter: There should be on Ubuntu.01:29
dimm0kanyone know how switch metamodes on a laptop?  there's no keypad!01:29
Jordan_Utlhunter: What symptoms are you seeing? I'm guessing since it's a VPS you are just seeing a lack of services (http / ssh)?01:29
edbianwsbl-uhpd651: The question is hard to answer yet easy for you to figure out.01:29
seanmc98carandraug: am i doing the right steps if i always want to bioot into ubuntu and use it anywhere with the pendrive? or is there a seperate way?01:29
tlhunternone of the services are up (e.g. trying to SSH and hit it with a browser)01:30
edbianwsbl-uhpd651: iptables (the backend to ufw) does not save changes by default but it is always on.01:30
edbiantlhunter: ping01:30
tlhunterparallels web interface tells me the only thing running is init01:30
carandraugdimm0k, there should be a key for that. Look for blue words NumLK on the keyboard.01:30
wsbl-uhpd651edbian: OK.  So you are telling me the ufw firewall is on by default anyway?01:30
Jordan_Utlhunter: Can you pastebin the contents of /boot/grub/grubenv ?01:30
edbiantlhunter: How are you looking at log files? Are you logged in locally?01:30
edbianwsbl-uhpd651: I don't know.01:30
tlhunterI told parallels to restart in 'repair mode', which reboots the old server contents under /repair/01:31
edbiantlhunter: Not familiar with parallels but ok01:31
dimm0kcarandraug: oh crap, got it!  thanks!01:31
tlhunterso now I can SSH into it temporarily, but it's not running the regular OS01:31
carandraugseanmc98, I prefer my way. What you did takes (I think) more space and is slower but allows you to install Ubuntu in any computer. Mine doesn't (but boots faster). It's like a normal install but on a hard drive where the size is the same as the USB stick01:32
carandraugdimm0k, no problem01:32
Jordan_Utlhunter: If your VPS is using grub2 (the default in Ubuntu) and /boot/grub/grubenv contains "recordfail=true" then you at least know that you are getting as far as grub, but not as far as running /etc/init.d/grub-common .01:32
edbiantlhunter: Sounds like logging is turned off.  Still, the old log files should be in there.01:32
seanmc98well all i want to be able to do is boot into ubuntu using the pendrive and anything i do on there save to pendrive01:33
twChipzzz: No dice. It looks like interfaces run by NetworkManager don't execute the /etc/network/if-<option>.d scripts.01:33
tlhunterboth the /boot and /repair/boot directories are empty, I'm thinking parallels is doing something silly01:33
ssquirrelhello01:33
edbiantlhunter: If /boot is empty you're missing grub...01:33
Jordan_Utlhunter: It's possible that, like many VPS providers, they are having the virtual machine load the kernel directly, without a separate bootloader. Which would mean no grub.01:34
Chipzzztw: I think you're right about that... you could turn off nm, though01:35
tlhunterthanks Jordan_U01:35
tlhunterif I chmod a-x a bunch of services in /etc/init.d, does that disable them from running at boot?01:35
carandraugseanmc98, then I would install Ubuntu on the USB stick (rather than making a Live USB stick. You'll need a CD with Ubuntu (or another USB stick to use as install)01:36
edbiantlhunter: it should yes01:36
edbiantlhunter: not sure what the a does.  But if the files are not executable (-x) they wont' execute01:36
Jordan_Utlhunter: You're welcome.01:36
tlhunterthanks edbian01:36
edbiantlhunter: sure01:36
seanmc98carandraug: i was reading from http://www.pendrivelinux.com/ that the way i am doing it will work01:37
carandraugseanmc98, yes. And like I told you, it will. I'm just explaining that there other way, and the difference to it.01:38
Co11ym00r3hi guys01:39
seanmc98oh ok thank you for all your help carandraug01:39
seanmc98getting ready to boot into ubuntu now01:39
seanmc98be back soon01:39
edbianCo11ym00r3: hello01:40
carandraugedbian, I believe the a means all (but I've been wrong before)01:40
carandraugedbian, yes. I just checked the man page. 'a' means all. a+x reads 'add (+) the execute bit (x) to all users (a)'01:41
edbiancarandraug: I would do sudo chmod -xR .01:41
edbiancarandraug: aaahhhh  not all files but all users01:41
edbiancarandraug: right-o01:41
carandraugedbian, o-x removes the execute from the owner01:42
carandraugof the file01:42
edbiancarandraug: Never used it like that! :)01:42
anomalizhello01:42
carandraugedbian, personally, I prefer the numeric mode 744. But it's handy to know the syntax as many people prefer this01:43
edbiancarandraug: yes me too.  Thanks :)01:43
carandraugedbian, actually. o is the group that owns the file. u is for the user that owns the file01:43
seanmc98carandraug: i need your opinion. what is better.. mint or ubuntu?01:43
edbianseanmc98: mint01:44
edbianseanmc98: but this is #ubuntu so I'm gonna get yelled at now :P01:44
carandraugseanmc98, I believe that's a matter of taste. I never used mint myself. Seen it once and wasn't impressed01:44
centHOGGlinux for desktops = joke01:44
seanmc98well ubuntu is the first linux OS i have ever tried01:44
edbianseanmc98: Ubuntu is great! :D01:45
seanmc98but the problem i have been haiving is i boot ubuntu from a CD01:45
carandraugseanmc98, ubuntu is nice. You may want to try other distros later. Many Linux users are afflicted with distro hoping. I've tried Debian and Arch as well01:45
seanmc98and i only have wireless so it installs the drivers and says reboot to finish installation and it pops out cd and boots to windows01:46
twChipzzz: It turns out run-parts didn't like my script (bad format, it says).  if-up.d/ does get called by nm.01:46
carandraugseanmc98, hmmm.. yeah. Install on a USB stick then. It should solve your problem01:47
seanmc98that should!! thanks man you are so much help!!01:48
Gracenoteshi. I'm having serious issues with graphical login (safe mode/root terminal work fine). according to auth.log, I log in then immediately log off, because something important crashes, it seems01:48
canu-qummhey01:48
Chipzzztw: I'm surprised at that... I've had problems setting up wireless cards & had the impression that nm would mess up interfaces configurations01:49
canu-qummerm, i'm on ubuntu 10.10 and I recently got emerald theme manager.01:49
invisibleklets see, disabled hw_scan on iwl3945, well see if that helps (even though modinfo says it's deprecated)01:49
canu-qummit doesnt work.01:49
canu-qummWell, I successfully imported the themes to it, but when I click on a theme, it does not change anything.01:49
Gracenotesit usually seems to be after mucking with nvidia's X settings, but there's nothing particularly wrong with Xorg.0.log or.. any log, that I can see01:49
Chipzzztw: maybe it's a version thing... what version are you running?01:50
GracenotesI'm a tad tired of having to re-install Ubuntu... uh... three times in three days, now?01:50
seanmc98can i make linux mint bootable from usb drivetoo ?01:50
canu-qummumm.01:51
invisiblekeww, still 41% packet loss over 10 seconds01:51
twChipzzz: this is 11.04. my nm version is 0.8.4~git.2011<some numbers get cut off>01:52
canu-qummwhy isn't emerald working on 10.10? i click on a theme and it doesn't do anything... yes, themes are successfully imported. I can't see the problem..01:52
benonsoftwarehi all01:52
Jordan_UGracenotes: Can you do a terminal login, run "gnome-session 2>&1 | tee /tmp/gnome-session-log.txt" then pastebin /tmp/gnome-session-log.txt ?01:52
xindzGuys are "Not cloning cgroup for unused subsystem ns" something to worry about?01:52
xindzGot that "error" all over my /var/log/messages file01:52
qincanu-qumm: emerald --replace, and emerald is dead software, thus not supported.01:53
Chipzzztw: maybe they've improved it since I was having that problem (back in the late 9.x & early 10.x versions)... thanks for that01:53
GracenotesJordan_U: ah. I assume there is output, but once I do xinit gdm, or gnome-session I suppose, I can't see it. tee makes lots of sense >_> brb01:53
canu-qummqin: I made it work on 11.04, it's amazing.. you're probably right on the dead part.01:53
canu-qummqin: it's still popular around deviantArt though.01:53
twChipzzz: np, try to run the directory with run-parts manually and see if it craps out on you like mine did.01:53
carandraugseanmc98, I believe you can install any Linux on a USB stick and boot from it (different from making a Live USB/CD)01:54
seanmc98whats the difference fom booting from one and a live USB?01:54
Chipzzztw: thanks, that's a good idea... I'll keep it in mind for next time around :)01:54
qincanu-qumm: Yeah, pity, could have decor ala Mathew Farrel ;(01:55
seanmc98hmmm use 8 gig flash drive for ubuntu bootable pendrive and use 4 gig for storing files or vice versa01:55
carandraugseanmc98, you can install on the USB stick (as if it was just another HD), or you can make a Live USB (with or without a persistent file). I explained you this 10min ago01:55
riz0nHey guys I just installed ubuntu 11.04. A couple of things -- first I'm not wild about the new interface. Is there a way to go back to old version, or at least move the sidebar on the left to the bottom of the screen?01:55
=== xindz is now known as xindzz`off
qin!classic | riz0n01:56
ubotturiz0n: The default interface in Ubuntu 11.04 is !Unity. To switch back to regular !GNOME: log out, click your username, click the Session box at the bottom of the screen, and select "Ubuntu Classic".01:56
seanmc98lol i am sorry. i want to install on USB stick01:56
riz0nkewl01:56
riz0ncan KDE loaded just like the old days sudo apt-get kde01:56
benonsoftwareriz0n: Pretty sure you can01:57
riz0nAlso if I should choose to keep "Unity" is there a way to move the task bar to the top or bottom of the screen instead of having it hover the left hand side of the screen?01:57
carandraugseanmc98, burn the iso on a CD (you already have a Ubuntu CD so this is already done). Boot from the CD and choose to install. During the install steps, when it asks if you want Ubuntu to take the whole disk or to install side by side with windows, choose manual, and install on the USB stick01:57
seanmc98k i will be gone doing tat01:58
Blackoakx22Its seanmc9801:58

qincanu-qumm: bmpanel? not idea, using dzen or tint02:05
Jordan_UGracenotes: Do you see the GDM screen at all?02:06
GracenotesI mean booting up grub into recovery mode, dropping to root terminal, which just has VESA02:06
GracenotesJordan_U: yes. and I type in my password. And there's a blank screen, and I'm back at the login screen.02:06

ubottupiero: Gnome 3 is not currently supported on Ubuntu. A PPA for natty is available at https://launchpad.net/~gnome3-team/+archive/gnome3 but these packages are EXPERIMENTAL and UNSTABLE, will break Unity and possibly other parts of your system, and cannot be downgraded safely.02:08

dimas__qin that doesnt work either02:42
Phr3d13eli_: from a quick google it sounds like a privacy thing telling you that you are being recorded, you can probably use the pulse mixer to turn the volume of it all the way down02:43
Phr3d13eli_: or whatever mixer02:43
eli_phr3d13, it doesn't beep outside of videos though02:43

almoxarifechewyTree: shoot03:41

chewyTreealmoxarife, Ive been trying to set up the ports to use transmission for the better part of 2 hours.  Seems like no matter what I do, its always closed03:42
psusichewyTree, set your router for forward some ports to you, and configure transmission to use them.. though if your router supports UPnP, this should happen automatically03:42
almoxarifechewyTree: can you access the firewall between you and the internet?03:42
soreauchewyTree: Not really a ubuntu-specific issue. You have to configure your router and/or server correctly03:42

nate114578Hello, I am running Ubuntu virtually and am unable to print. Is that possible?03:42
chewyTreealmoxarife, I think thats the issue.  Verizon has it all blocked, no matter what i set my router as03:43
almoxarifechewyTree: how are you connected to the internet?03:43
chewyTreealmoxarife, my router is directly connected to the fios box03:43
nate114578broadband/directly connected03:43
soreaunate114578: Sure, for various reasons. One of which may be that the virtual machine does not have direct hardware access to whatever the printer connects to03:43
SarujiJordan_U hey I already have my usb thumb drive setup to boot from the mini ubuntu iso, the problem i have is with the partitioning screen, could you possibly help me out?03:43
nate114578my printer shows up but the jobs always fail03:44
almoxarifechewyTree: if verizon blocks ports then you need to figure out which are not blocked, if they block bittorrent protocol then you are screwed03:44
soreaunate114578: I'd try it from a live session and make sure it's working there first03:44
soreauThat would at least rule out driver/configuration issue03:45

ubottukion: As 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 :)03:51
wabznasmJake: It's a DNS server - it will cache DNS requests instead of always going to your DNS provider (ISP or open)03:51
Jake556778ok that's what i wanted to hear03:51

kionsoreau: yes i have two processes running03:54
zykotick9soreau, i can't think of a reason when pppoe over wireless would ever make sense (as you'd be connecting to a router most likely), but i can see how it would cause issues....  i imagine removing the pppoe changes might be required.03:54
ackleeJake556778: note that if your internet connection through the MikroTik, you can create the DNS server there03:54
soreaukion: Next thing I would do is left-click on the network icon and select 'Edit Connections..'03:54
soreaukion: Make sure things are sane there03:54
soreauzykotick9: I really have no idea what the problem is but maybe he will see it himself while walking through the basic steps03:55
kionsoreau: on my wireless network everything appears greyed out and cannot edit or change anything03:55
soreaukion: Is it a laptop? HP by chance? Does it have a wifi switch to enable/disable wireless?03:56
kionno it is an Alienware03:57
zykotick9soreau, from what i remember (and it's been a LONG time since i used pppoe directly on my system) it creates some sort of virtual adapter and diables the regular network adapter interface - but it's been a long time!03:57

The LAMP server is working perfectally on a local connection but no one can see it externally. Why would port 80 would still be closed?03:58

bubbles|is it a problem to install a second instance?04:03
zykotick9!checkinstall | bubbles|04:03
ubottububbles|: 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!04:03

almoxarifekion: is there some reason why the traditional wifi connection is not avail?04:11
Jordan_Uwabznasm: As far as I can tell apt-fast will only make things faster by you by giving you a disproportionate (see unfair) amount of bandwidth from the package servers. There are enough mirrors that you should be able to find one that can saturate your connection without overloading servers with connections.04:12
mikubuntusoreau: the ui, i just lookd at the unit i don't know where it might indicate out of paper on the box itself04:12

RediXeacklee, I'll give it a shot - but thinking I worded my current state wrong.. I have no desktop atm - it just spits me to the command line05:15
wildbatrkhshm: may be that y the automount failed ~ is it formatted ? or try scandisk in windows see if it fix05:15

SeanBannisterJust wondering, once I edit a port in /etc/services does anyone know what service I have to restart to make the port changes known05:16
Jordan_UFriGiN: Is there an option to continue without installing a bootloader?05:16
FriGiNJordan_U, yes, how do i load ubu if it doesnt have boot loader then05:16
Jordan_UFriGiN: By installing grub manually from the LiveCD or using Super GRUB2 Disk.05:17
ka1gdqno luck..way too much time adn I am beat!05:17
RediXeacklee, I tried installing nvidia-current and I think I got to the basic gnome desktop.. downloaded the nvidia driver for linux 32bit off their site and now back to CLI only ... while I had the basic desktop I checked the other drivers that lists the propietary drivers and it said it was installed but not in use (no activate button either)05:17
FriGiNJordan_U, last i knew, grub was difficult to mess with and unforgiving has that changed?05:17
Jordan_UFriGiN: I would highly recommend installing 11.04 rather than 10.10 though, as it has a newer version of grub.05:17
perfectjiteshgry @ is it important to setup $path05:18
FriGiNJordan_U, i am using 11.0405:18
FriGiNJordan_U, You are using Ubuntu 11.04 - the Natty Narwhal05:18

perfectjiteshgry@ okay let me complete then i'll tell u what is not happening most probably it will say that it does not understnad "adb"  when i use some commands05:22
ActionParsnipsam1234: install nvidia-current and it will give the driver you need, you may need to add the boot option: nouveau.blacklist=1   to get the initial desktop05:22
Jordan_UFriGiN: It depends on what you're doing. FakeRAID in linux is always complicated, that includes when dealing with grub.05:22
ActionParsnipsb1: have you tried my suggestion?05:22
gryperfectjitesh: sure, just describe your issue once you understand it well, and explain what you did.05:22

Jordan_UFriGiN: Don't expect game speed increases with Ubuntu (or any other distro), that said I'm curious why grub isn't installing so if you're OK with it I'd actually prefer to keep troubleshooting :)05:25
ActionParsnipJordan_U: apparent counter strike source runs better under wine than in windows :)05:26
FriGiNJordan_U, 100% happy to be ur guinea pig as long as win 7 doesnt go anywhere. and as far as speed increases thats due to an overdue overhaul of win7 with bad drivers and some other complicated crap i'd normally just format.  However there is some work stuff i cant get back for about 3 months if i lose windows.05:27
RediXeacklee, still no such luck05:27
sam1234ok ActionParsnip. thx lot will try and share the result.05:27
Jordan_UFriGiN: The "dangerous" part, resizing the Windows partition, is already over. Even if grub completely fails there will be no data loss and it's easy to restore an MS style mbr to get Windows booting.05:29

perfectjiteshk05:44
ackleeRediXe: I used to, now I run 11:04 not using Wubi..05:44
FriGiNJordan_U, one sec before continuing... i still have the "continue without loader" up. should i go ahead and OK that?05:44
tuanhtI'm customizing a distro base on Ubuntu. And I want run a bash script when ubiquity installer complete (to copy some file that pre-generate before ubiquity run) by using  'd-i preseed/late_command ...' in ubuntu.seed file but it's not work. Does anyone help me solve this problem?05:45

kaellanHdmi question. if i select that option "separate x server" if i do full scren while playing wow it gets the resolution for the tv and not for the laptop ?05:45
saruji_Having problems with not being able to see 2 of my partitions, this post explains the problem very well, any help would be greatly appretiated.. http://tinyurl.com/5rdpeyk05:46
RediXeacklee, I'm wondering if it had something to do with the update-initramus as that is the one thing I was not doing when I was trying to solve this solo05:46
RediXeacklee, just gave it another reboot just to make sure and it's still working fine :D05:47
=== kvcrawford is now known as ColKurtz
ackleeRediXe: so "man update-initramfs" may help you05:47
consolerswrong channel,but the the answer to my usbstick question  is that that bios expects 64 heads and 32 sectors05:47
Jordan_UFriGiN: Yes. But I thought you had already done that, so first run "exit" then when you're back to a normal prompt run "for mountpoint in /mnt/{dev,sys,proc,}; do sudo umount $mountpoint; done"05:48
almoxarifesaruji_: that is one handsome post, I must say, I don't know the answer, but, could it have something to do with entries? as in only the first 2-3 partions show up by default? long shot05:48

RediXeacklee, Yeah I'll give a read - thanks again for the help :)05:48
kaellanhow do i open th nvidia x gui if i dont cant click on the ubuntu logo in upper left corner ? :P05:48
Jordan_UFriGiN: I don't want anything we did to affect what the installer might still need to do.05:48
FriGiNJordan_U, well im pretty sure its hosed already, i cant click ok on any of the options including the "cancel installation"05:49
tux_what are you having problems with05:49
Jordan_UFriGiN: Then just leave it however it is and we'll install grub and see what happens. Did you run "exit" or the for loop I gave yet? If not, don't. If so tell me which you have run.05:51
FriGiNJordan_U, i cant even get installer to go away...05:51
Jordan_UFriGiN: I understand that.05:51

=== perfectjitesh is now known as your_favorite_ni
FriGiNJordan_U, so leave installer mucked up, then just go ahead and dpkg-reconfigure grub-pc again?05:52
Jordan_UFriGiN: Have you run "exit" yet? (yes or no)05:53
FriGiNno im totally horked. give me like 10 mins. let me restart pc, resetup my wireless and get back in chat. scratch it all over05:53

tux_its eather the hard drive or the mother board or boath06:00
Jordan_Upratz: You have a buggy BIOS which can't properly handle large drives. You can work around the bug by creating a small /boot/ partition near the beginning of the drive.06:00

Jordan_Utux_: Or creates a small /boot/ partition near the beginning of the drive.06:05
tux_it ant going to matter if the bios wont load it up06:06
almoxarifesaruji_: you are installing 11.04, have you tried the cd/dvd, not the live, the one with repair/install06:06

saruji_almoxarife, what do you mean?  So i have the default download from ubuntu.com of 11.04 64 bit, burnt to a cd right?06:10
gregah, well the end goal is to create a script that reads the value from that file06:10
tux_just try to redownload must be a bad download06:10

BKTech86hi, I'm trying to configure grub with ubuntu on 1 hard drive and windows xp on a 2nd hard drive .. i had to remove the boot flag from the windows xp partition in order to get grub working again, but now if i try to boot the windows xp  partition it says bootmgr missing06:45
BKTech86i just want grub to recognize that the windows xp partition is bootable, and list it in the grub menu, can anyone help pls?06:46
Jordan_UBKTech86: That's an error message from Windows, not from grub.06:47
BKTech86yeah i know06:47
BKTech86but how can i fix the whole situation06:48
Jordan_UBKTech86: For help fixing Windows try ##windows.06:48
FriGiNJordan_U: did you see my pastebin06:48
Jordan_UFriGiN: Yes.06:48

BKTech86im not trying to fix windows im trying to get grub to recognize the windows partition and put it in the menu list06:48
Jordan_UBKTech86: Once Windows is actually in a working state "sudo update-grub" will add an entry for it to the grub menu.06:49
BKTech86well it was in a working state06:49
BKTech86until i removed the boot flag06:49
BKTech86and i did update-grub06:49
BKTech86thats all i did and now its not in the  list (1) and it wont boot (2)06:50
Jordan_UBKTech86: Did you install grub's boot sector to a partition rather than the mbr?06:50
BKTech86ill tell you exactly what i did06:50
Jordan_UFriGiN: Can you pastebin the output of "sudo parted -l"?06:51
BKTech86i mounted my normal linux partition that install grub to06:51
BKTech86then i did sudo grub-install root-directory=/mnt/mountpointoflinux /dev/sda06:51
BKTech86--root-directory*06:51
BKTech86that's what i did06:51
FriGiNJordan_U: http://pastebin.ubuntu.com/642430/06:52
Jordan_UBKTech86: Then the boot flag on the Windows partition should't have made any difference as far as grub working.06:52
Jordan_UBKTech86: Unless you have a buggy BIOS or there is more to the story than that.06:52

BKTech86oh in bios? it is07:00

FriGiNJordan_U: ok, also it shows a 2nd line "- /dev/sda5 (118924 MB; /)"07:01
Jordan_UBKTech86: The symptoms + boot info script output suggest otherwise. I'm betting if you select sda in a one time boot menu grub will load no matter what boot flags are where.07:01
Jack87not quit sure where to start. any advice would be great07:01
Jordan_UFriGiN: Do not select that. Select only sda then continue.07:01

FriGiNJordan_U: ok on my way.07:04
pratzhow do i find the usb device name which is plugged in ??07:04
Jordan_UBKTech86: Most BIOSs will show a message like "press F8 for a one time boot menu" (where F8 might be some other key) which will list all drives and allow you to select one to boot without changing the boot priority permanently.07:04
BKTech86my bios doesnt have that option on my desktop07:05
BKTech86my script says windows is installed in the mbr of sdb07:05

eddiemongeikonia_ is /etc/shells a script?08:30
Charybdiscrackerjackz: Let's reset your MBR back to a bootable state then.  If you are getting a grub error without the thumb drive in, then I think I know what's going on.  I deal with this all the time in Ubuntu installs.08:30
CharybdisAh, ok.08:30
crackerjackzCharybdis, on the windows cd08:30
odixwell im copying one hd two 7 other satas, but since i have no room left i took apart a bunch of external usbs, took out the sata to usb bs and just did a dd with one if and seven of...08:30

ikoniaeddiemonge: no08:31
Charybdiscrackerjackz: Yeah, that's what you need to do, run a fixmbr from the Windows install cd.08:31
llutzbullgard4: then it might have other purposes. sry can't help08:31
bullgard4llutz: Thank you.08:31
CharybdisAlthough, I didn't think there was a recovery console included with the Home edition of XP.08:32
CharybdisI thought that was only with XP Pro.08:32
eddiemongeikonia: what is it supposed to be? i see /etc/shells but it says its not a folder. do i just use that as the shell prompt?08:32
ikoniaeddiemonge: open it and view the contents of the file08:32
crackerjackzCharybdis, it has a recovery console08:33
Charybdiscrackerjackz: Then go ahead and run fixboot and fixmbr08:33
Charybdiscrackerjackz: That should get you back into Windows.08:33
crackerjackzCharybdis, it was the admin password but there is no password i leave i blank but it says invalid lol08:34
Charybdiscrackerjackz: Ok.08:34
eddiemongeikonia: /usr/bin/git-shell is not in there. how do i enable it? adding it doesnt seem to change anyting08:34
odixcopying dd 7 times at once...anybody see a prob with that? 500 gig img to 7 hds at once ?08:34
odix16gig of ram ?08:34
ikoniaeddiemonge: for a shell to be classed as a "login" shell, it needs to be in that file08:35
gryodix, copy serial, not in parallel, that usually is faster overall08:35
odixhmm08:35
odixto late08:35
odixyour right tho08:36
crackerjackzCharybdis, it won't let me use the recovery console because it says i have the wrong admin password08:36
eddiemongeikonia: hmm then how do i set git-shell? all the tutorials seem to imply that it just works08:36
odixi think it took like 45 mins last time for one so we will see... ;p08:36
Charybdiscrackerjackz: One tic...08:36

HAWK_why when i put the 64 bit 11.04 ubuntu in at startup it boots back to the 32 bit version?08:39
crackerjackzCharybdis, thats not gonna work because.. i dont have a ubuntu live cd.. im using damn small linux. the internet wont work with dsl and i cant get linux to detect my partitons08:39
eddiemongeikonia: it was just there. maybe from doing aptitude install git git-core08:39
ikoniaHAWK_: you've either not installed 64bit, or you've pointed grub at an old 32bit08:39

Charybdiscrackerjackz: I don't recall if you told me or not... did you say if it was SATA or PATA/IDE?08:40
crackerjackzbut that would indeed fix the mbr right/08:40
crackerjackzCharybdis, SATA08:40
Charybdiscrackerjackz: Yes, it would.08:40

dicksonxavierhi08:41
crackerjackzCharybdis, nope im talking to you on a laptop right now08:41
eddiemongeikonia: no, i get fatal: Interactive git shell is not enabled. hint: ~/git-shell-commands should exist and have read and execute access.  that folder doesnt exist in the home directory and creating it doesnt change anything. i feel like im supposed to copy stuff into there but that doesnt seem right08:41
HAWK_can i go into "e" and edit the commands and boot from the usb?08:41
CharybdisHow big is your thumbdrive?  Do you have a CD/DVD burner on the laptop?08:41
crackerjackzCharybdis, my thumbdrive is 512 mb08:41
grytim_desta: I see your question, I'm not sure why it's happening. I think you should be able to try to find a relevant part of system log on your system.08:41
ikoniaHAWK_: if you want08:42
crackerjackzCharybdis, i have no blank cds/dvds08:42
ikoniaeddiemonge: ok - so the good news is, you know it's a limitation of the shell in it's current state, not a problem with it not being a login shell08:42
Charybdiscrackerjackz: Either you need to find a blank, or you'll lose your data.  What's the deal with the internet?08:42
eddiemongeikonia: thats good news?08:42

wabznasmZiauddinMK: I spent some time looking a few months ago, and found absolutely nothing08:43
CharybdisHAWK_: Linux sees usb drives the same as installed disks.  If you have only one installed disk, it should be /dev/sda.  Then your USB drive should be /dev/sdb08:43
crackerjackzCharybdis, i dont know, still trying to figure out whats wrong with the net08:43
ikoniaeddiemonge: ok, google shows a few patch submits on git-help - the problem appears to be that the "COMMAND" directory needs to be present and have write permissions on it08:43
Charybdiscrackerjackz: Wired or wireless?08:43
wabznasmZiauddinMK: totally proprietary Adobe standard. No open source at all08:43

kaellandesktoplol only cous i typed that it finished hahaha08:53
Charybdisxubuntu-noob is right, hit escape, then try :wq08:53
kaellandesktopisnt it posible to instal backtrack 5 on the same disk buth difrent partetition ?08:54
Charybdiskaellandesktop: Yes.08:54
kaellandesktopk08:55
crackerjackzCharybdis, so there isn't a way to fix the MBR from linux?08:55
Charybdiscrackerjackz: Yes, but I'm not familiar enough with grub to be able to point the way.  I have used lilo for so long, I got used to it.08:56
crackerjackzCharybdis, do i need internet on the desktop to do it08:56
CharybdisHowever, if DSL isn't seeing the drive at all, then it won't matter, because you can't write to a boot record you can't even see.08:56
Charybdiscrackerjackz: The only thing you'd need internet for is to download a different distro.08:57
crackerjackzCharybdis, cat /proc/partitions list sda and sda1... sda1 is my flash drive08:58
kubancis there any application for IP webcam, I already tried zoneminder and motion, but none of them works. My IP camera works in browser08:58
crackerjackzdo you think sda is where the mbr is?08:58
Charybdiscrackerjackz: NO!08:58
kaellandesktopwhat to type in terminal to get that disk untility thingy just to look up the partetitions on a disk?08:58
crackerjackzits 503808 blocks.. what is that partition i wonder08:58
Charybdis/dev/sda1 is the first logical drive on drive /dev/sda08:58
Charybdiscrackerjackz: In otherwords, it's the first partition on drive sda08:58
CharybdisSo if /dev/sda1 is your usb drive, then /dev/sda is the physical drive it's on.08:59
crackerjackzahhh i see08:59
crackerjackzwell i have an idea...08:59
Charybdiscrackerjackz: Or rather, /dev/sda is the thumbdrive... and /dev/sda1 is the first partition on it.08:59
crackerjackzCharybdis, when it i boot the computer up with out the flash drive it says grub rescue> and there are commands that i can type.. anything i could do from there maybe?09:01
Charybdiscrackerjackz: Possibly, but I don't know grub well enough to give you advice.09:02
Charybdiscrackerjackz: What's happened, is that the drive is looking for the boot info from your thumb drive, instead of from the hard drive.09:02
Charybdiscrackerjackz: That sometimes happens when you do a soft reboot instead of doing a hard shutdown then startup.09:02
xubuntu-noobHey who can inform me well on Likewise ? I'm crawling forums, and it looks like I should just forget it since I have ubuntu>lucid_lynx. Can someone confirm ?09:03
Charybdiscrackerjackz: Especially if you are booting from cd09:03

Charybdis:)09:18

crackerjackzgry, because wubi only lets you go up to 30 gb for some reason.. its a gui and has a drop down menu.. it doesn't let you custom define it for some reason09:22
crackerjackzand the only reason i used wubi was because i dont have a blank cd or a thumb drive with enough space09:23

grycrackerjackz: that doesn't mean you can't dualboot by now09:27
crackerjackzgry, i am... but i'm getting rid of windows i think09:27
grycrackerjackz: make sure you have backups. just in case you have inportand documents in there.09:27
crackerjackzi might try reactos09:27
Charybdiscrackerjackz: Why?09:27
actionParsnipsam1234: you may need natty, or a PPA. The driver in the Lucid repos is a bit old for your newer hardware09:27
grycrackerjackz: it's alpha; not for everyday use.09:28

naxahi! i have 10.04 and having problems with my nvidia geforce 6200: cpu usage is very high by xorg, compiz enabled. previously i had geforce2 so and i also tried the binary drivers from nvidia site, could anyone help me sort this out so i could properly reinstall my drivers, not ubuntu? (i have already purged nvidia* and installed nvidia-current what first caused conflict with the kernel modules somehow and also some warning about vdpau)09:33
crackerjackzCharybdis, i think since i had 3 partitions all together... the partition i wanted to install ubuntu on was 76 GB  but wubi would only let me use 30 for the ubuntu install.. so i'm guessing it took the other half and made it an extended partition..09:33
crackerjackzso it created 2 extra partitions09:33
sam1234<actionParsnip> and <ubott> thx lot for the advices.09:33
actionParsnipaaronds: drwxrwxr-x $USER $USER09:33
Charybdiscrackerjackz: Possible.09:33
Charybdiscrackerjackz: Or it may have been creating the 4th partition for swap.09:34
aarondsactionParsnip, how can I apply those permissions with chmod?09:34
szalnaxa: first properly uninstall the binary nVidia driver -> 'sudo nvidia-installer --uninstall'09:34
Charybdisaarcane: That's chmod 77509:34

sam1234actionParsnip, isnt it based on ubuntu ?09:47
actionParsnipsam1234: ubuntu is based on debian, but I wouldn't say I was using debian.  I'm using ubuntu09:47
Charybdissam1234: Just because something is based on something else, does not make it backwards compatible.09:47
HackNewtonactionParsnip, nice point :D09:48

AFDI did a server reboot after installing ubuntu-desktop for NXserver sessions and the encrypted disk won't come back up... error I get at boot is "unknown error setting up device mapping"10:43
newgenAFD, welcome in my personal hell10:44
AFDnewgen hi10:44
AFDnewgen you know your way around?10:44
newgenAFD, i updated from ubuntu 10.10 to 11.04 and it killed my grub including the device.map in /boot/grub/10:45
newgenAFD, but i spent currently 8 hours and have still no solution10:45
AFDI don't think I'm on 11.04 as the server was 10.04 and I think I kept it that way10:45
newgenAFD, better do not try to update. it will make things worse10:46
newgenAFD, does your /boot/grub/device.map look ok?10:47
blunderblastmorning anyone around this early?10:48
newgenif you are lucky, you can use a live cd, open the crypto filesystem with "cryptsetup luksOpen /dev/sdX devicehandle" and run fsck on /dev/mapper/devicehandle10:48
AFDI'm looking for that not10:48
FstabUserswhat should i typein /etc/fstab so just users from group sambausers can mount a shared folder?10:49

FstabUsersany help plz?10:50

blunderblastI'm brand new to Ubuntu and having the toughest time getting it up and running, with the livecd version everything goes great, but when I install and run from the drive, nothing happens at all10:51
ikoniablunderblast: what do you mean "nothing happens"10:51
Squall5668well, blunderblast, something must happen. Anything at all10:52
ikoniablunderblast: you need to explain the problem, or thats like me saying "do something to fix it"10:52
blunderblastguess I should be a bit more specific..sorry..I'm still half asleep10:52

ikoniaFstabUsers: listen, if you want non-root users to be able to mount a disk, the option is "users" in fstab10:54
newgenAFD, i really hope you can fix it with the fsck. because my problem is very persistent and noone seems to know the solution....10:55
AFDnewgen do you know if the server CD will boot to a live session?10:55
blunderblastI boot from the HD, get the login/pwd screen, I login then...the wallpaper appears and then that's it..no keyboard input allowed or mouse input10:55
newgenAFD, not sure...10:56
tyler-allenI dont belive the server vesion boots ot a live session, sorry.10:56
FstabUserslook what i got....i have share1 share2 and user1 user2 and user3 // share1 should be mounted, unmounted and written by all users. share2 should only be used by user1 and user2.10:56

obertbut really..are you really get Quassel gui intuitive at its usage? hmm10:56
newgenAFD, all you need is a console where you can enter the commands10:56
Squall5668blunderblast: are you running 11.04? try the classic option, see if that works for a start10:57
AFDyeah - I've got a borne shell atm10:57

AFDit doesn't know what fsck or sudo is tho :(10:57

lalejand_Hi, I'm trying to configure a cisco vpn connexion with network-manager but I cant' make it work. Someone can help me ?10:58

AFDI can ls -a and see the RAMdisk10:58
AFDbin dev init etc there10:58
ikoniathat is useles10:59
FstabUsersikonia: what do you suggest then?10:59
ikoniaFstabUsers: you set the permissions on the target file system and on the local users/groups10:59
newgenAFD, the busy box is quite useless to repair the system10:59

SwedeMikeMrEgg964: if they're just going to do light fileserver interaction basically any box will do, but if you want it to serve multiple gigabits/s of data continously, then it's another deal11:05
siddharthasahu@nightrid3r: could you please tell the exact command??11:05
BaribalMrEgg964, sounds to me like the number of users would be less relevant than the traffic they're causing. A company SVN server could be a rather modest box, but a HDTV streamer... Well, not.11:05

Squall5668it can't11:35

thesheff17Anakin_n: allot of games don't work on linux.  I would search google for just for linux gaming and you will see the small subset that work.  Many times they are running through wine which is like a windows emulation program.  Of course you can display FSP with linux.11:38
ppetrakiFstabUsers, that fstab perm should make it irrelevant whether it's automounted or not.11:38
ppetrakiFstabUsers, test it11:38
ppetrakiFstabUsers, if you're trying to automount a specific share, relative to the logged in user, that's a different exercise11:39
FstabUsersi got share1 share2 and user1 user2 user3. share1 should be automounted and remounted anytime by all users. share2 should be only automounted and remounted anytime by user1 and user2. that's what i'm trying to achieve.11:40

ppetrakiFstabUsers, so you're really just extending this example to include the ACLs your after. So for user1 and user2 you should probably make a group for them, and use that as the "group=" constraint in fstab. That should achieve the desired affect you're after.11:46

JesdiscipleHi.  I've managed to get an uncorrupted ISO over to my Ubuntu (this computer) via a flash drive.  I installed it to the hard disk with Unetbootin (frugal install) and tried to boot to it.  A message flashes on the screen that something is deprecated, too quickly to read, and then I'm presented with an ash shell (I think it was called "(initrmfs)".13:17
ehw /win 213:17
JesdiscipleMy laptop's inbuilt keyboard is broken, so Enter and some other keys don't work; meanwhile, my external keyboard isn't detected at that stage of boot.  So all I can do is hard-reset the computer - but before, when I had suspected the ISO was corrupted because copies I downloaded later were so but I couldn't verify that because Unetbootin had deleted the ISO, I was able to type and entering "exit" caused a kernel panic.13:17

KNUBBIGHey, I'm looking for a better version of how to mirror a local directory to a ftp directory, I only want to upload new and changed files but also apply deletes. Any idea?16:00

VectorXedbian i mean16:01
edbianVectorX: sure16:01
bootloadercantor, yes I do16:01
cantorbootloader, or /home/user/.bashrc16:01
cantorat the end of .bashrc there is a if statement about bash completion16:02
Kyron-16:03
cantorsince you do not have sudo, you cannot change /etc/bash.bachrc16:03
bootloadercantor... I do have sudo. i can do anything short of a re-install16:04
JoshMandersHey guys, sorry to bother you again, but I'm running 10.04 and I can't get it to recognize my iPod Touch, and it says it should recognize it out of the box.16:05
cantoroh, well, on line 31 of /etc/bash.bashrc, you can uncomment the if statement below: # enable bash completion in interactive shells16:05

PiciKNUBBIG: Normally, I'd suggest rsync, but rsync doesn't do ftp.  I believe lftp can do syncing, but I've never used it before.16:07
KNUBBIGPici: okay, I'm currently using lftp which is somewhat VERY slow, I think I have to look into tuning it. Thanks16:08
monsterwizardHow can I uninstall evolution?16:08
bootloadercantor, that was the problem. thx16:09
gregory_in gmusic i receive this error Playing error : Resource not found. at /usr/bin/../share/gmusicbrowser/gmusicbrowser_gstreamer-0.10.pm line 135.16:09
kroq-gar78monsterwizard: sudo apt-get remove evolution16:09
cantorbootloader, cool16:09
monsterwizardahhh thank you16:10
kroq-gar78monsterwizard: or go to software center, and search for evolution, then say remove16:10
Octodigityou could use rsync with something like fuse or vfs, KNUBBIG16:10
monsterwizardI tried that but it says there :/16:10
kroq-gar78monsterwizard: what do you mean "it says there"? its already removed?16:10
Phoenix6780rsync uses lower bandwidth16:10
cantorwhy does rsync auto start in ubuntu?16:11
cantorwhat is that for?16:11
Phoenix6780and it's used by storage servers to automatically backup16:11
monsterwizardonce I uninstall it from the software centre it still apears to be...installed16:11
cantorin lucid specifically16:11
Phoenix6780rsync pushes files16:11
kroq-gar78monsterwizard: strange. did you try opening it after?16:11
cantormonsterwizard, did you try sudo apt-get uninstall packagename16:12
monsterwizardnope16:12
monsterwizardThat I shall try now16:12
kroq-gar78cantor: no such thing as "uninstall" for apt16:12
Octodigitit might be worth getting a test ftp server up, then at the "client" end trying rsync with curlftpfs16:12
cantorSORRY!16:12
cantorsudo apt-get remove package name16:12

Octodigityou'll stuff like compression though :\16:13

cantoror, sudo apt-get remove --purge packagename16:13
tauntaunI've been reading web pages re sendmail vs. postfix, and I can't seem to make up my mind which MTA to favor.  Any thoughts?16:13
kroq-gar78cantor: that's what I was about to say :P16:13
compdocyes, use purge to remove it all16:13
cantormonsterwizard, what do you mean still there, where do you see it?16:14

gregory_is there a codec in medibuntu repository for m4a filetype?16:14
sipiortauntaun: postfix.16:14
bootloadermonsterwizard, I had a problem with that recently. the metapackage installed like 3-4 different bins that were executed by the programs name16:14
monsterwizardI see it in the menu16:14
Octodigitalso, that should read "you'll lose stuff like compression though :\"16:14
tauntaunsipior: reasons? :)16:14

monsterwizardyes16:14
sipiortauntaun: try configuring both of them.16:15
matt08642nikonmikon NO U MAD16:15
BluesKajOctodigit, @ doesn't work on irc, the nick is enough to highlight16:15
rwwtauntaun: postfix is Ubuntu's default MTA, and sendmail is overcomplicated to configure and generally annoying16:15
matt08642nikonmikon, maddeus16:15
cantorPici, sorry, I just know I will say it later16:15
OctodigitBluesKaj: just an abbreviation of the word @ :)16:15

Octodigitlibfaad for m4a, innit?16:15
bootloaderso what I ended up doing was finding all the pkgs installed by the meta and manually removing them.16:15
KNUBBIGOctodigit: just read you, sorry. Thank, I will try that. Have a local test ftp16:15
sipiortauntaun: sendmail also has a history of poor security. postfix was generally designed to mitigate many of the design flaws in sendmail.16:16
gregory_when i uninstalled gmusicbrowser it saved allt he songs in my library, how can i reset or remove them all?16:16
OctodigitKNUBBIG: worth a shot, isn't it :)16:16
BluesKajOctodigit, fine , but we get alot of the IM stuff , so i had to let you know16:16

KNUBBIGOctodigit: very true, thanks :)16:16
Octodigitheh fair enough ;)16:16
tauntaunsipior: Yes, I've heard that, but I've also read claims that sendmail's security weakness are "way overblown."16:16
* tauntaun will do more reading.16:17

kroq-gar78monsterwizard: try "sudo apt-get remove evolution-common16:17
monsterwizardthat the chat recommends16:17
kroq-gar78"16:17
Octodigitpretty sure we monkey around m4as around here without issue with a blob of packages we install by default, and I think the relevant ones are libfaad/libfaac, gregory_16:17
kroq-gar78monsterwizard: for evolution that is :P16:18

gregory_is there an equivalent of msconfig startup tab ?16:21
cantorKNUBBIG, are you running X when you install?16:21
KNUBBIGcantor: nope16:21
cantorgregory_, terminal16:21
Coreygregory_: update-rc.d from the terminal.16:21
coz_gregory_,  maybe system/preferences/ sessions or startup application?16:22
cantorKNUBBIG, is it an old card?16:22
Octodigitwait a sec, the uivalent of msconfig depends on why he's asking16:22
KNUBBIGcantor: not that much, gtx 28016:22
PolahI have a script that dumps a database to a file each day and names the file with the date as "forums_$(date +%d-%m-%Y).sql". I'd like to keep the past week's worth of dumps and thus each time the script runs I'd like it to delete the oldest file which should be 7 days old then. How can I do this?16:22
Octodigitif it's to work with gui startup it's the gnome app, if the system startup it's init16:22
Octodigitgregory_: wot for, old chap?16:22
coz_gregory_,  if it is for startup applications then  system/preferences/startup applications16:23
monsterwizardOk I think most of it is gone now16:23
monsterwizardthank you all16:23
gregory_they were not visible, in bootup manager that i had dled. it was some media program that styayed up possibly becuase of a restart16:23
kroq-gar78monsterwizard: np. does it run anymore?16:23
cantormonsterwizard, some of the evolution stuff is required for ubuntu-desktop I think16:23
monsterwizardit's a very hard application to uninstall16:24
cantorI do not think you can delete everything that is evolution16:24
monsterwizardYou're right, some of this stuff must be requirede16:24
kroq-gar78cantor: yeah that's what I thought too, but when you remove evolution, it has no problems w/ ubuntu-desktop16:24
cantorkroq-gar78, there is some dependency issue I think16:24
cantorwith some of the evolution stuff16:25
afeijohi guys, I'm using ubuntu 10.10 and my ubuntu one tell me that I cannot share one of my folders (documents) because of no internet connection? lol16:25
cantorKNUBBIG, what driver version are you using?16:25
afeijoops, not share but sync, I cannot enable the sync checkbox16:25
kroq-gar78cantor: how? do you mean that there are some things hidden in gnome or something?16:25
cantorafeijo, lol16:25
cantorno no, let me check16:26
OctodigitPolah: depends on the requirement it's easy enough to get a date for one week ago and generate the filename for  (man date)16:26
KNUBBIGcantor: one Moment, I'll have to look that up16:26
coz_monsterwizard,  one way is to open synaptic packages manager and search for evolution16:26
coz_monsterwizard,  then right click one package at a time  to see if anything of importance is going to be uninstalled16:26
Octodigitor you can use find -mtime to check for files modified, or you can alter dirvish config - are the dumps managed by config?16:26
monsterwizardI'm trying to find a more lightweight client that isn't as heavy as evolution16:26
rufian2how can i move the desktop of my laptop to a external VGA using the terminal?16:26
coz_monsterwizard,  a bit of a long way around it but you will also get a clearer understanding of necessary dependencies16:26
kroq-gar78coz_: problem with that is that a bunch of other random stuff also comes up.16:26
monsterwizardfor gmail and hotmaikl16:27
wubi_apprentice_hello, I've tried to install wubi on my fresh laptop but when I boot into wubi it does not boot and giving such errors as: "bad lun, bad target number 1-8" etc. what might be the problem and how can I figure this out? thanks alot.16:27
cantorkroq-gar78, evolution-data-server is what I meant16:27
kroq-gar78monsterwizard: maybe elementary os's postler?16:27
OctodigitPolah: also consider do you *always* want to delete dumps from a week ago? even if subsequent dumps have not worked?16:27
kroq-gar78cantor: ah got it16:27
kroq-gar78monsterwizard: but I think it's still in beta or something.16:27
monsterwizardahh wow I'll look it up16:27
rwwevolution-data-server is part of GNOME core more than it's part of Evolution.16:27
