usr13GeekMan122: That's not ALL it's for.00:00
xN_did you get that bazhang00:00
bazhangGeekMan122, please stop with all the commentary00:00
SkaperenDr_Willis: I simply did a straight install to the target device ... which can be a flash drive or hard drive, sata, sas, scsi, ide, usb, firewire, etc00:00
GeekMan122aww00:00
bazhangxN_, I could not read it, too spread out00:00
brightsparkusr13, GeekMan122, no mine worked and sometime does but it isn,t reliable.  let me check hibernate and my swap is 2 GB00:01
SkaperenDr_Willis: which is why I'm looking at syslinux because grub2 has problems with it00:01
xN_ok ill type it in full00:01
ElectronDoes anyone use Minitube in here?00:02
GeekMan122what kinda computer if its like a mac or somthing i have guide for ibookg4's took me forever to fix the kinks00:02

Electronbazhang, downloaded a freakin video and i have no idea where it goes00:03

xN_I am running fluxbox on ubuntu 11.04 I am wondering how to add the notification area to the toolbar (volume icon etc.) and also ubuntu software center will show the GUI but it will not install the selected program when i click "install"00:05
brightspark_usr13, GeekMan122, hibernate didn't work00:05
computeronfireHi, can anyone help me  with reading my lm-sensors output?00:05
Electronbazhang, So does anyone use minitube was part of the real question00:05
GeekMan122... mabybe it was hibernate that fails on me althe time gtg though00:05
qinElectron: then use iotop or inotify to monitor it, maybe /tmp ?00:05
bazhangElectron, certainly, but better to ask the entire question, unless you want to poll the entire channel for who uses it00:06
JoAnneThraxOkay...I just went through the entire upgrading process, and I still seem to be (according to lsb_release -a) in Karmic...why is this, and what does it take for me to get to a not-EOL version of ubuntu?00:06
brightspark_usr13, GeekMan122, as with sleep the screen went black but the computer continued to run and heat up very much very fast.00:06
Electronbazhang, Well apparently no one does anyway.00:06
=== xindz is now known as xindzz`off
qinElectron: locate minitube may help00:06
computeronfirehttp://pastebin.com/iWrvXtNS  What does the alarm mean?00:07
bazhangElectron, you are trying to save youtube videos, is that correct?00:07
brightspark_usr13, so I had to reboot to protect my equipment and sleep started working again but I don't feel like the problem is properly resolved.00:07
xN_better bazhang?00:07
ActionParsnip!away > xindzz`off00:07
ubottuxindzz`off, please see my private message00:07
Electronbazhang, Yes, it has a download function.  It downloaded..no clue where it says it too00:08
noipIs there any way to speed up updates in Ubuntu? I'm getting < 15 kB/s00:08
=== lemons_ is now known as lemons
bazhangElectron, I certainly dont use it, but rather download them and convert them as I watch with the firefox addon. seems more convoluted with minitube00:09
bazhangnoip, switch servers in synaptic package manager, try that first00:09
ActionParsnipnoip: use apt-fast :)00:10
computeronfirenoip: Stop the update or wait till it completes, then open synaptic and go to Settings>REpositories>Download From00:10
computeronfireApt-fast of course00:10
ActionParsnipnoip: pulls downloads a tonne faster00:10
noipActionParsnip - computeronfire - bashang -- thanks all!00:11
computeronfireAnyone know what this alarm means in my sensors output?   http://pastebin.com/iWrvXtNS00:11
Coreycomputeronfire: It means one of your voltages hit a threshold.00:12
computeronfireCorey: Is that bad?00:12
CoreyLikely not good.00:12

JoAnneThraxThis confuses me, because I upgraded this AM from jaunty, changed the sources to the EOL sources for karmic, and upgraded again...and it spent an hour or two churning through all that.00:15
CaptWhoany special reason that you can't download the iso for 10.10?00:16

mecheesehi. my problem is that my x.org file does not exist and my monitor is saying "signal out of range". on lucid00:16
al_nz1didnt work00:16
dlimecheese, you mean xorg.conf ?00:17
CaptWhoyou want xorg.conf?00:17
mecheesedli yes00:17
JoAnneThraxCaptWho: I haven't tried, though if it's a large ISO I have very limited disk space available...00:17
CaptWhohave to specially install that from the shell00:17
mecheesexorg.conf is missing dli00:17
JoAnneThraxCan I do an upgrade by downloading the iso?00:17
CaptWhobut you have to shut down X first00:17
bazhangJoAnneThrax, from karmic?00:17
ActionParsnipJoAnneThrax: you'll need the alternate ISO00:18
dlimecheese, you don't need xorg.conf nowadays00:18
mecheeseCaptWho are you talking to me?00:18
JoAnneThraxbazhang: Apparently I'm still in Karmic...which is confusing me because I thought the last two hours were an upgrade from Karmic...00:18
mecheesedli what do I need then?00:18
dlimecheese, if you want to tweak something, do only that part in /etc/xorg.conf.d/00:18
mecheesedli I'd like to have my monitor work.00:18
cg2916i discovered something weird00:18
Electronbazhang, Which firefox addon?00:19
cg2916Dr_Willis, when I use Pen Drive Linux tools to treat Lubuntu like Ubuntu, it works, but if Itreat it as "Other", it doesn't work00:19
dlimecheese, like modes?00:19
jkoudysOn the default install of the latest ubuntu: Can I map my mouse to work like on a mac, e.g. my left + right buttons both send the first click button, but ctrl+click is a right click?00:19

bazhanghttps://help.ubuntu.com/community/LucidUpgrades JoAnneThrax00:19
mecheesedli before I have made a xorg.conf and edited it to get it to work. as instructed by people in this chat.00:20
bazhangElectron, video download helper, I'll find the link if you wish00:20
dlimecheese, pastebin your working xorg.conf00:20
JoAnneThraxbazhang: My sources.list, no doubt, needs an upgrade from the Karmic EOL repositories anyway...but that whole thing this morning about setting the prompt in etc/update-manager/release-upgrades to LTS I thought was intended to address this...00:20
ActionParsnipjkoudys: I'd imagine so, would take some work00:20
bazhangJoAnneThrax, check the link I just gave you00:20
jkoudysActionParsnip: tips on where to start?00:20
ActionParsnipjkoudys: not something I've done but I can imagine its possible00:20
CaptWhoi was irritated because i had to download 10.04 and create an iso and now i'm upgrading00:21
ActionParsnipjkoudys: look into xmodmap is all I can suggest00:21
mecheesedli my xorg.conf does not exist for my hd install with nvidia. I'm using a dvd lucid to talk on here with no nvidia.00:21

ubottuderp|gone, please see my private message00:21
dlimecheese, nvidia, sorry, I don't touch nvidia myself, can not help00:22
bazhangmecheese, out of range means you chose a higher res than allowable by your card or dont have the correct driver for that res00:22
cg2916Dr_Willis, when I use Pen Drive Linux tools to treat Lubuntu like Ubuntu, it works, but if Itreat it as "Other", it doesn't work00:22
Dr_Williscg2916,  makes sence to me...00:22
ActionParsnipcg2916: lubuntu is ubuntu, just with a different default app set00:23
Dr_Willistheres just to many variations in how these distros work.00:23
cg2916If I treat is as Ubuntu will it mess stuff up00:23
mecheesebazhang I have ran into this problem before. my resolution is very high for my monitor and I have used this card to make very high res with it.00:23
bazhangUpgrade from 9.10 to 10.04 LTSNetwork Upgrade for Ubuntu Desktops (Recommended) JoAnneThrax read below that00:23
JoAnneThraxbazhang: Okay...there's already a snag: I don't understand Step 1: "Start System/Administration/Software Sources"  I'm not running kde/gnome00:23
Dr_Williscg2916,  lubuntu is ubuntu...00:23
cg2916ALSO it says install Ubuntu instead of Install Lubuntu, and it says I need 10.2 gb instead of 5.700:23
bazhangJoAnneThrax, then do the server one00:23
Dr_Williscg2916,  i dont trust any of those #'s00:23
ActionParsnipcg2916: ive seen that on the mailing list00:24
mecheesebazhang I need to figure out how I fixed it before and record it lol00:24
cg2916Numbers?00:24
cg2916ActionParsnip, what mailing list00:24
bazhangmecheese, log in , recovery mode, install the drivers, reduce the res just in case, reboot00:24
JoAnneThraxbazhang: Okay, thanks.  Technically I'm running kubuntu, but with WindowMaker...00:24
Dr_Willisneed 10.2 gb...  need it to do what>? just boot? edit  text files... :)00:24
ActionParsnipcg2916: yeah the needed space, cant remember the solution, or if one even exists00:24
Dr_WillisI need much more then 10.2 gb to do that stuff i normally do...00:24
ActionParsnipcg2916: the lubuntu mailing list00:25
cg2916Ok00:25
bazhangJoAnneThrax, the steps for server are right there, need help with those?00:25
* Dr_Willis looks at his 7+gb of wallpaper collection...00:25
famicube64lolwut00:26
mecheesebazhang that seems like a novel thing to do. I still think that there is something that I can do to get the high resolution I want. I've had it before with lucid.00:26
bazhangfamicube64, support issue?00:26
JoAnneThraxbazhang: No, I think I have it, as long as the Prompt thing is supposed to be normal...thanks!00:26
famicube64was referring to  Dr_Willis's comment00:26

Dr_WillisSkaperen,  just a collection ive accumulated over the years.   there are some neat wallpaper changer/slideshow tools out in the repoistories.  and i saw a neat tool to let you generate your own gnome wallpaper slideshows the other day.00:28
SkaperenDr_Willis: and I thought I was bad with 533 MB of wallpapers00:28
mecheesebazhang the drivers are already installed.00:28
jewoodallActionParsnip: your first advice resolved my challenges. Updating fixed things. I can now hand my ex-wife back her computer, new operating system installed, and never see her again. thank you.00:28
bazhangmecheese, which ones, and what card, how were they installed00:28

sappiernow polipo will not install00:30

mecheesebazhang ah hah. I found the xorg.conf. I was looking in the wrong place duh.00:30
ActionParsnipnoip: what is the wireless chip?00:30
noipDr_Willis - It went up by itself, and the updates finished, and I just restarted.00:30
noipActionParsnip, Can you remind me of the command to pull up that info?00:31
Dr_Willisnoip,  you got any other pcs on the same network? could be some weirdness with the isp.  or some local wireless interfearance..00:31
mecheesebazhang can I paste it. remind me how to I do it nonintrusively?00:31
TrentonAdamsI just installed ubuntu 11.04 on my new machine.  It's an i7 3.4GHz with Vertex 3 hard drive.  Everything except for the user interface are SUPER snappy.  Even my keyboard typing has delays in it very badly.  Any ideas?00:31

ActionParsnipsappier: sudo apt-get install polipo00:33
bazhangsappier, sudo apt-get install polipo00:33
Dr_Willisnoip,  an interesting test would be to run the wire to the problem pc. and see if it speeds up.. that would narrow it down to a Wireless driver issue i think..00:33
TrentonAdamsDr_Willis: It asked to install them, I said yes, the nvidia settings are installed, but the "Additional Drivers" program says it's activated but not currently in use00:33
sappieractionparsnip I have, but it doesn't install any folders00:33

ActionParsnipnoip: if the file is now empty, you can delete the file00:57
JoAnneThraxSo that is why the upgrade is to Lucid and not Natty or Maverick?00:57
noipActionParsnip, btw. I just noticed I've been getting this error in the command line when trying to edit that file. Attempting to set the permissions of `/root/.local/share/recently-used.xbel', but failed: No such file or directo...00:57
pooltablewhat if you want to run after 3 years how do you get help support?00:57
ActionParsnipJoAnneThrax: you need to upgrade to the next release, or the next LTS if you are at LTS currently00:58
bazhangJoAnneThrax, no, you need to go step by step, for the upgrades, unless it is LTS to LTS which can jump over those00:58
ActionParsnipnoip: you could create the file to supress the message00:58
bazhangpooltable, you dont get any security upgrades.00:59
noipCan I use nano instead? Would that help?00:59
noipActionParsnip, Should i just use nano?00:59
bazhangpooltable, and it becomes unsupported, so no help here either.00:59
ActionParsnipnoip: sure00:59
noipActionParsnip, The file has already been created.01:01
pooltablebazhang if Ubuntu 10.04.2 LTS what is the next version and will it have the unity thing with it ?01:01
JoAnneThraxWell, by the time the LTS for Lucid is over...I'll have it downloaded and installed :)01:01
bazhangpooltable, 12.0401:01
noipActionParsnip, Any other ideas?01:02
pooltablebazhang so about ever 2 years?01:02

bazhangpooltable, ----> #ubuntu-offtopic for chat01:08
Guest90287bazhang, I tried The Standard Way to reset my password and it told me the password updated successfully, but after running the "init 2" it ran a few lines of code, asked my login and passwd, ran a few lines of code then I got keyctl_search: rewuired key not available ....Perhaps try the interactive 'ecryptfs-mount-private' ....to run a command as (user "root") use "sudo <command>" ......See "man sudo_root" for details.01:09
bazhangGuest90287, you forgot the password for your encrypted hdd? or simply your sudo login password01:10
Guest90287bazhang, I guess I've forgotten both. Grrr, I feel foolish01:11
Guest90287My hdd is not encrypted that I'm aware of01:11
pooltablejoannetrax wow like my upgrade to 11.04 took a long time01:12
bazhang'ecryptfs-mount-private'   Guest90287 that error looks like it01:12
noipActionParsnip, I'll run an OpenSuse live CD to see if it's something w/ Ubuntu.01:12
Guest90287I changed my password a while back and then I've not tried booting this computer in a good while01:12
Guest90287bazhang, is there a cure?01:13
maujhsnWant to install this release! How do I do it? http://ppa.launchpad.net/sunab/kdenlive-svn/ubuntu/dists/lucid/01:13
bazhangmaujhsn, are you on lucid?01:13
JoAnneThraxpooltable: Yeah, it's only using about a quarter of my bandwidth for the download...which is a little inconvenient, but I'll survive...01:13
maujhsnbazhang Yes01:13
bazhangmaujhsn, so add the ppa and update, then install01:14
pooltablejoannethax why so little use more at night when you sleep?01:14
noipActionParsnip, sorry if I was bothering you. Peace.01:14
JoAnneThraxpooltable: I have no idea why it's using so little.  It's not at my end.01:15
pooltablejoannethrax i see01:15
bazhangJoAnneThrax, pooltable please continue this chat in the #ubuntu-offtopic channel, thanks.01:16
maujhsnbazhang The PPA is installed how do I install this gpg from http://ppa.launchpad.net/sunab/kdenlive-svn/ubuntu/dists/lucid/Release.gpg01:16
bazhangmaujhsn, the instructions are there, are they not? on the ppa main page?01:17
Guest90287bazhang, do I have any quality options to my issue?01:17

bazhangbyroncoughlin, ah okay, discussion and support for that is in #ubuntu+101:20
byroncoughlinbazhang thanks01:20
bazhangGuest90287, if you encrypted your hdd and forgot the pass, thats not good.01:21
bazhangGuest90287, hopefully you have a full set of backups of all data01:21
Guest90287I highly doubt I encrypted it01:21
rebuKeHey, I'm trying to install Ubuntu 11.04 and I'm having some toruble01:21
rebuKeI tried both USB and DVD install and they both hang on the first screen where it asks me if I want 3rd party applications01:22
Guest90287I think it has to do with sudo login password01:22
rebuKeIf I install Ubuntu 10.04 and upgrade with the dist-upgrade tool will that be like a half-assed upgrade? Should I troubleshoot my current problem or what's up? Anyone have any fixes01:23
edbianrebuKe: Don't worry, it's whole-assed01:23
edbianrebuKe: What is your current problem?01:23
Guest90287bazhang, I'm 100% certain that I didn't encrypt my hdd01:23
bazhangrebuKe, did you md5 the iso01:23
rebuKeedbian: As of right now, I try USB and DVD installation for 11.04. It hangs on the first install screen- the one where it asks me if I want to install 3rd party codecs and update while installing01:24
rebuKeedbian: no matter what options i pick/don't pick it hangs01:24
rebuKebazhang: yes01:24
edbianrebuKe: Try running the installer from the terminal (it's called ubiquity) that way you'll see some errors hopefully when it hangs.01:24
bazhangrebuKe, and did the disk integrity check as well. what about bootoptions, which ones did you try and use01:25
edbianrebuKe: Is the liveUSB online when you get to that point?01:25
DILacpi off?01:25
rebuKeedbian: yes, I managed to get to google and try to search around01:25
Guest90287I tried changing my password a few weeks ago and it got late. I remember changing the stuff mentioned in Step 5 of the link you sent ...5. Go to the very end of the line, change the ro to rw and add init=/bin/bash01:25
Guest90287press enter, then press b to boot your system.01:25
rebuKebazhang: I didn't mess with any bootoptions01:25
bazhangrebuKe, worth a look then01:25
bazhang!bootoptions | rebuKe01:25
ubotturebuKe: For a list and explanation on some of the boot options, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BootOptions See also !nomodeset.01:25
bazhangrebuKe, if that fails then try the alternate installer01:26
rebuKebazhang: It's weird, honestly. Like, whenever a new Ubuntu release drops I always have trouble installing it. I inevitibly have to upgrade from a past release. It happened with 10.10 and 9.1001:26
edbianrebuKe: ok..  So try running ubiquity in the term01:26
edbianrebuKe: That's not weird.  That's Ubuntu01:27
rebuKeedbian: will do, thanks. also thank you @bazhang01:27
edbianrebuKe: sure01:27
StepNjumphi edbian, did you get my offline message?01:28
edbianStepNjump: no... how do I get those?01:28
StepNjumpI don't know01:28
StepNjumplol01:28
bazhangedbian, memoserv01:29
edbianStepNjump: What did it say?01:29
edbianStepNjump: Read it01:29
StepNjumpYou were logged off. I wrote something like/msg nickname send message01:29
StepNjumpLet me see01:29
StepNjumpbrb01:29
edbianStepNjump: That's very interesting.  So it was stuck off in linux but it worked in windows?01:29
edbianStepNjump: I found it01:30
edbianbazhang: thanks01:30
cjsI've just upgraded from 10.10 to 11.04, and it seems to have broken my desktop environment. When I logged in the first time, it said something about not having hardware capable of running Unity, and I should chose something before logging in. I can't seem to do that; the only options before login are a menu for access preferences (keyboard changes, etc.) and a menu to suspend/shut down/etc. As well, it's now coming up not in fvwm over gnome, as 10.101:30
cjs0 was configured, but with something that looks like metacity and nautilus, neither of which I want to run.01:30
cjsSo how do I fix this?01:30
StepNjumpedbian: msg NickServ INFO nickname01:30
StepNjumpOh so you read it01:30
edbianStepNjump: I read it01:30
edbianha01:30
edbianyes01:30
edbiancjs: reading...01:30
StepNjumpGood01:31
edbiancjs: Click your name, then look at session at the bottom.  It doesn't show up until you click your name.01:31
Guest90287bazhang, I found the line of code I had changed a couple of weeks back. It is the.... init=/bin/bash .....line. I changed it according to the info you first sent and hit Ctrl+x to reboot. That brought me to root@(none):/#01:31
edbiancjs: We can probably get unity working too btw01:31
StepNjumpedbian, yes, I just went in Windoz to see if the hardware was working in there and it did. When I came back to linux, it started working right away upon boot up. edbian01:31
cjsWhat is unity?01:31
edbianStepNjump: I bet you can get it to get stuck in Linux everytime but pressing Fn + F3, am I right?01:31
edbiancjs: unity is a new interface built at Ubuntu01:32
edbiancjs: Looks like this: http://itmanagement.earthweb.com/img/2010/05/ubuntu-unity.png01:32
StepNjumpwell, Fn F3 didnt work in ubuntu until I rebooted and had gone to windoze first01:32
edbianStepNjump: Maybe ifconfig wlan0 down will get it stuck01:33
Guest90287bazhang, now I need to make sure I understand what I need to do with the following instructions. ....6. Type in passwd username ....I feel ignorant, but should I type the password I set a little bit earlier and then SPACE my old username (I never changed my username).01:33
StepNjumpas soon as I came back in Linux, I tried rfkill event and could clearly see that now it would work fine, even the led started working again. Didnt have to do anything at the term level to get it back up and running. Windows somehow fixed it. Its kind of embarrassing to say01:34
bazhangGuest90287, yes01:34
StepNjumpebdian yep maybe01:34
edbianStepNjump: curious01:34
cjsedbian: Hm. That seems to be going the wrong direction. :-) What I'm looking for looks more like this: http://www.cynic.net/misc/cjs-desktop.png01:34
PinGuys my computer is stuck, "warning : unresponsive script" popup01:35
edbiancjs: Do you have the DE installed? (whatever it is?_01:35
cjsedbian: So the main thing I need to do is a) banish nautilus, or whatever the new file manager is, and b) run fvwm rather than whatever the new window manager is.01:35
Pinnevermind!01:35
edbiancjs: How did you upgrade? Did you have fvwm installed previous to this upgrade?01:35
cjsedbian: DE? Yes. I run gnome with fvwm on it. The config all works under 8.04 and 8.10.01:35
usr13StepNjump: Trust me, windows didn't fix anything.01:35
Guest90287bazhang ....should I use sudo to start that line off or something? It told me my password was No Command.01:36
StepNjumpebdian.. but I learned from all of this so I changed my /etc/network/interfaces to auto wlan1 instead of auto lo that was the default. Now it boots up using my Belkin wifi dongle as the default. Good stuff01:36
edbiancjs: Desktop Environment = DE.  How did you upgrade to 11.04 ?01:36
cjsedbian: Yup, updated a working 10.04 system to 10.10, which worked, and then to 11.04, which is where it stopped.01:36
StepNjumplol usr13.. ok let's call it ... a somewhat of a boost01:36
edbianStepNjump: You need auto lo and you can add auto wlan0 if you want.01:36
cjsFor the upgrade, I got a dialogue box offering it when I first booted 10.10.01:36
StepNjumpI need both?01:37
StepNjumpauto lo AND auto wlan1?01:37
edbiancjs: Log out, click your name, look at the bottom for session, try the other sessions offered, log in.01:37
cjsI guess my frst question is, there used to be options on the login screen at one point way back when to choose different environments to start after you log in. are those just permanently gone now?01:37
edbianStepNjump: You only NEED auto lo   auto wlan0 (or wlan1) is optional01:37
cjsOh, it's *after* you click your name!01:37
usr13cjs: NO01:37
cjsThat's nailed me before.01:37
edbiancjs: You have to click you rname01:37
StepNjumpok01:37
edbiancjs: yes01:37
StepNjumpshould I have both at the same time edbian?01:37
edbianStepNjump: that's fine (on different lines of course)01:38
pooltablehow to make a new folder in applications ?01:38
StepNjumpok01:38
edbianpooltable: System -> Preferences -> Menu Editor01:38
LordDeltaGreetings, anyone know enough about the gnome-keyring to know why pidgin/gwibber/NetworkManager have been locked out of my credentials?01:38
cjsedbian: Ok, ubuntu classic seems to do the same thing....give me the exact same UI even.01:38
edbianpooltable: or maybe it's called main menu01:38
noipActionParsnip, I booted into OpenSuse 11.4 and my internet connectivity was super fast again. So, it's a problem with Ubuntu 11.04 updates or something.01:39
edbiancjs: If you tried to log into unity and it said 'hardware not good enough' it would have dumped you to Ubuntu classic.01:39
edbiancjs: What else was listed?  Your crazy gnome + fvwm  ?01:39
Guest90287bazhang, maybe it's the actual PHRASE passwd and then my username? ....These are the steps leading up to that part. Your system will boot up to a passwordless root shell.01:39
Guest902876. Type in passwd username01:39
Guest902877. Set your password.01:39
Guest902878. Type in reboot01:39
FloodBot1Guest90287: Please don't flood; use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste; don't use Enter as punctuation.01:39
edbianoh god01:39
StepNjumpedbian, the reason i did all this mess is just to ensure the RF transceiver is far away from me (RF exposure). I have a USB cable that distances my Wifi dongle away from me because RF KillS01:39
StepNjumplol01:39
pooltableedbian main menu is the one what do i do from there ?01:39
cjsedbian: That was never listed; I modified the standard gnome to use a different wm and not start nautilus.01:40
edbianStepNjump: I don't think Wifi signals from dongle are nearly strong enough to be significant01:40
StepNjumprfkillS.. do you get it?01:40
edbianpooltable: hang on lemme look01:40
edbiancjs: I think you might have to re-modify gnome01:40
pooltableedbian ok01:40
edbianStepNjump: yes, hilarious01:40
StepNjumpedbian.. oh.. not sure about that. It gives me a tummy ache myself when my built in wifi is on in my netbook. Not kidding...01:40
=== derp is now known as derp|gone
cjsedbian: Yes, that's what I'm guessing....01:41
edbianpooltable: click Applications on the left side.  Click new Menu on the right side.01:41
noipDr_Willis, I had the question earlier about my internet wireless internet connectivity slowing way down today. I booted into OpenSuse 11.4 a minute ago, and my internet was running fine. It appears to be an Ubuntu problem of some sort. Any other suggestions?01:41
StepNjumpedbian here's a good document used in the field http://transition.fcc.gov/Bureaus/Engineering_Technology/Documents/bulletins/oet65/oet65b.pdf01:41
edbiancjs: sorry! :(01:41
edbianStepNjump: Really01:41
cjsedbian: So, is gconftool still the preferred command line tool for changing the gconf database? We still use the gconf database for configuration, right?01:41
cjsedbian: It happens. :-)01:42
TrentonAdamsThe sluggish typing is back.  I don't think it's the graphics card.  But it certainly is a HORRIBLE experience.  Again 11.04 with ubuntu classic, I don't know what to do.  My system is EXTREMELY fast.  It boots in 3 seconds.01:42
edbiancjs: yes and yes and yes01:42
edbianTrentonAdams: Do you have a wireless keyboard?01:42
TrentonAdamsedbian: no, USB keyboard01:42
StepNjumpedbian, well as a ham radio operator, Im kind of sensitized to the subject01:42
mrdebTrentonAdams: gconf editor turn off vsync01:42
edbianTrentonAdams: then IDK01:42
mrdebi can help u01:42
edbianStepNjump: That is interesting but we're very offtopic01:42
TrentonAdamsmrdeb: where abouts in there?01:42
edbianmrdeb: What has that got to do with sluggish typing?01:42
StepNjumpsure... sorry01:43
LordDelta...nvm, looks like I figured out how to...ameliorate my problem. Though I have no clue why my keyring keeps on doing this to me.01:43
edbianStepNjump: it's ok :)01:43
LordDeltaKeeps on locking me out of my wireless network.01:43
mrdebyou go into gconf-editor and then desktop, compiz, plugins, unity or install compiz settings and changes vsync. also look up speeding up ubuntu 110401:43
LordDeltaI'm starting to wonder if I need to change my laptop passwd, maybe someone's hacking it. >_<01:43
TrentonAdamsmrdeb: I don't have compiz installed I don't think, I'm using ubuntu-classic01:43

TrentonAdamsmrdeb: it's in app->compiz01:45
cjsedbian: So, desktop.gnome.session.required_components.windowmanager is just "gnome-wm", which is what I used to use. Is the WINDOW_MANAGER environment variable no longer honoured? Do you know what the replacement is?01:46
TrentonAdamsmrdeb: oh, yeah, no compiz settings manager installed01:46
edbianpooltable: also, something needs to be in it!01:46

noipMy wireless internet is running crazy slow after I started up my laptop today. No speed issues with Windows 7, or OpenSuse. Chrome/Chromium/FIrefox all running crazy slow in 11.04. I tried turning of wireless N and that didn't help. Any other suggestions?01:50
edbianBDR: I think I can help but you need to catch me up01:50
pooltableedbian i see01:50
edbianpooltable: :)01:50
mecheeseif I can get my monitor going i can see graphics01:51
pooltableedbian why does it do that ?01:51
BDRedbian: Sure. It's an Intersil 3886, and it didn't show up on a test my friend had me administer with console magic.01:51
mecheesenvidia is installed and my monitor is saying no01:51
edbianpooltable: I do not know01:52
TrentonAdamsmrdeb: Also, the only thing the gconf-editor can find that's called "sync" is tomboy related stuff, nothing to do with vsync01:52
BDRIt's not autodetected by Linux either; it claimed it could not access the Internet despite the light on the adapter saying it was on and working.01:52
pooltableedbian do i still need to log in and out to save where i move it ?01:52
WhyFiI'm having a bit of a problem with my Ubuntu 11.04... My computer has two hard drives, one of them containing Windows 7. Just today I installed Ubuntu 11.04 on the other drive.

bazhang!9.10 | mrdeb01:56
ubottumrdeb: Ubuntu 9.10 (Karmic Koala) was the eleventh release of Ubuntu. !End-Of-Life on April 29th 2011, see http://goo.gl/UUTAB for details.01:56
BDRedbian: I was checking the output01:57
mrdebare there any major problems with 9.1 if its notsupported now. i prefer it over the new ubunuts01:57
edbianBDR: sorry to interrupt.  You can put it in paste.ubuntu.com if you want me to read01:57
mecheesedoes any one know how to fix a monitor not showing graphics. just let me know. I'll wait if you can help.01:57
WhyFiIt does state "Found Windows 7 (loader) on /dev/sdb1"01:57
bazhangmrdeb, no security updates, ever. not supported here either.01:57
BDRedbian: I'm not chatting from that computer unfortunately.01:57

edbianBDR: It is not online?01:58
kfpndcthere was a site which u paste your lspci output and it says what are your hardware does any ne knows what is the site?01:58
MrPPSmrdeb: Only if you're not online01:58
BDRIt is not possible to go online with the computer.01:58
WhyFiSo it will only work if that hard drive is in 1st priority on the BIOS it seems01:58
bazhangmrdeb, its offtopic here, not support and very unwise to never have security.01:58
q_what boot loader did you use man01:58
mecheesepooltable not sure what you mean. there's just a blank screen with the notice: signal out of range01:58

TrentonAdamsmrdeb: Well, I found the setting in the compize manager itself, so hopelly that works.  It's the sync to vblank thing, right?02:00
edbiansroy2: sudo lspci -k02:00

pooltablemecheese  sorry how are you see this but no grafix ?02:10

edbianWhyFi: Yes.02:10
mecheesepooltable works without nvidia. dvd ubuntu without nvidia02:10
pooltablemecheese  ok i see02:11
BDRedbian: that came to me after, so i searched for intersil 3886, intersil and 2wire and nothing02:11
pooltablemecheese  dam  not sure where to start with out knowing model02:11
edbianBDR: What came to you?  I'm very confused right now.02:11
BDRedbian: Searching for the card as opposed to "rfkill"02:12
edbianWhyFi: I think you need to configure plymouth.  Plymouth is the graphical red dots you usually see when Ubuntu boots.  Although I thought grub came before that.02:12
edbianWhyFi: Try booting while pressing shift to try to get into the grub menu02:12
BDRedbian: I searched for "2wire", "intersil", and "intersil 3886" and found nada.02:12
edbianBDR: sudo rfkill list     says nothing right?02:12
edbianBDR: Well here is a very relevent page: http://linuxwireless.org/en/users/Drivers/p54?highlight=%28Intersil%29|%283886%2902:13
BDRedbian: Yep. It's just like I pressed enter.02:13

bob_Question... apparently my hardware is not good enough for Ubuntu Unity... Is there a way to determine what part of my hardware failed?02:15
edbianbob_: Almost definitely the video card.  That's what causes that error.  It can usually be fixed by switching drivers.02:16
bob_So just update the drivers then?02:16

szaledbian, bob_: for the GF4 to run with the proprietary nVidia driver, it needs the legady nvidia-9602:25
edbianbob_: That's the open source one.  If you search 'nvidia' in synaptic you'll see a list of like 20 packages with drivers in them.  I have no idea which is right for you card. I think the description for each says02:25
edbianszal: legady ?02:25
szal*buntu still has it, other distros have dropped it02:25

mecheesepooltable it's ok02:27
bob_let me try that sudo command02:27
pooltabledid you do what SZAL just say ?02:27
pooltablemecheese 'sudo apt-get install nvidia-96 && sudo nvidia-xconfig', then reboot02:28
edbianbob_: That command just installs the driver.  avoids synaptic entirely02:28
szalpooltable: does mecheese have the same old card?02:28
mecheesepooltable ok is this an earlier version of the driver02:28
pooltablemecheese  ok when did it work right ?02:28

edbianBDR: Turn on the universe repo in System -> Admin -> Software Sources02:46
chriswris there a way i can hide some files that are in my trash bin since they wont delete?02:47
edbianBDR: natty is the release, it refers to version 11.04   unity is the DE that you can't load :)02:47
bazhangedbian, thats in synaptic now02:47
edbianbazhang: ?02:47
edbianbazhang: the package?02:47
bob_Okay, it looks like i need synaptic.  How do I open it now, only thing I seem to be able to get is software center02:47
bazhangedbian, no software sources. its in synaptic now02:47
edbianbazhang: t's cause he doesn't have universe enabled I think02:47
edbianbazhang: Oh thanks02:47
edbianBDR: Find software sources in synaptic02:47

szal!loopback02:50
ubottuTo mount an ISO disc image, type « sudo mount -o loop <ISO-filename> <mountpoint> » - There is a list of useful cd image conversion tools at http://wiki.linuxquestions.org/wiki/CD_Image_Conversion - Always verify the ISO using !MD5 before !burning.02:50
BDRedbian: I am looking in the synaptic package manager, that package isn't there02:50
szalhm, that's pretty surely not the meaning we want here02:50
bazhangszal, yeah, not02:51
bazhangmohammed52, lo in the ifconfig02:51
edbianBDR: look for software sources in synaptic02:51
BDRedbian: unless it's not a package in which case i need further guidance02:51
bazhangmohammed52, explain exactly what you are trying to do02:52
edbianBDR: you have to find software sources first in synaptic02:52
hjalforDoes anybody know how to you install install Flash in Lubuntu?02:52

xibalba_hey all, i have a very silly question02:54
xibalba_but how can i tell if a cable if plugged into my eth interface?02:54
Wulfxibalba_: ip link show dev eth3702:54
xibalba_in bsd ifconfig shows Active02:54
Wulfor miitool02:54
BDRedbian: is 'software sources' something I can find with the search? If it's not then you'll have to tell me how to find them.02:54
xibalba_oh dude02:54
xibalba_awesome!02:54
xibalba_i've been doing tcpdump -i ethX to see if there is traffic02:55
Wulfxibalba_: eth0: <NO-CARRIER,BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP>   NO-CARRIER means no cable02:55
szalWulf: eth37?02:55
xibalba_yep just tested02:55
mohammed52bazhang i am using this http://www.ubuntugeek.com/nfs-server-and-client-configuration-in-ubuntu.html02:55
Wulfszal: if you have many cards :)02:55
xibalba_szal , he has alot of NICs02:55
szallol02:55
BDRedbian: because i used search and typed in 'software' at the synaptic package manager main thingy and got nothing that looked like 'software sources'.02:55
edbianBDR: 'software sources' is not what we're looking for and it's not a package.02:55
edbianBDR: I'm trying to get the Universe repo turned on.  We have to do it using synaptic, I do now know where it is in there.02:56
bazhangBDR, you check the tab, marking which software sources you wish to use.02:56
edbianbazhang: Thank you! :D02:56
bazhangBDR, in synaptic package manager.02:56
xibalba_ok wulf, one other question if you dont mind02:56
xibalba_i'm trying to create fail-over nic bonding, how should i tell if the nics are the same chipset02:57
xibalba_i have 2 nics, with 2 ports each02:57
xibalba_i guess the mac should e one off?02:57
xibalba_and they are one off :)02:57
bob_it looks like I have the updated drivers installed, but they don't show for my video card.  Is there something I need to do to tell my vid card to use the new driver?02:57
* xibalba_ is excited to setup nic bonding :)02:58
edbianbob_: purge the neavou package and restart.  You can use sudo lspci -k   to see which driver is being used02:58
szalbob_: relevant passage of 'lspci -v' please (everything that exceeds one line to pastebin please)02:58
szalbob_: btw, did you reboot?02:59
bob_will try02:59
bob_not yet02:59
bob_should I do that first?02:59
szalbob_: then do that first02:59
bob_k02:59
bob_brb02:59
FloodBot1bob_: Please don't flood; use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste; don't use Enter as punctuation.02:59
edbianBDR: I'm afraid I have to go now!  I am very sure about the solution I found.  You need to look at package 1 and 3 in this list: http://packages.ubuntu.com/search?suite=natty&section=all&arch=any&searchon=all&keywords=prism5403:00
BDRedbian: I will search for those.03:01
edbianBDR: good luck sir!03:01
BDRedbian: 'linux-wlan' does not show up when I search for it03:01
edbianBDR: You need to turn on the Universe repo first. Then they will show up.03:02
BDRedbian: I have not a clue how to do that.03:02
edbianBDR: I don't know how to on Ubuntu 11.04  other people here know how. bazhang described to you how.03:02
bazhangBDR, after you check the appropriate checkboxes for the software repositories, then hit reload03:02
BDRbazhang: How do I figure out what the appropriate checkboxes are?03:03
bazhangBDR, would a command line method be easier for you?03:03
edbianbazhang: thank you :)03:03
edbianI wish I could help more!03:03
BDRbazhang: I can follow a command line method to the letter but I have a feeling it's not going to be any more satisfactory.03:04
BDRbazhang: before I do I will guess - if I check the checkbox for a package, it will show the software sources?03:04
szalBDR: you basically need a text editor & remove a handful of # characters, then refresh package sources, that's about it03:04
bazhangBDR, well if you cannot find software in synaptic package manager, the tabs, then there's really no way to guide you. look a t the tabs. main universe, restricted etc and check them03:05
xibalba_hey guys i created some bond groups under /etc/networking/interfces but they dont seeem to be taking03:06
* szal has never used any of the graphical package management methods on a Debian-like system03:06
xibalba_i followed thispage here https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuBonding03:06
xibalba_on 10.0403:06
xibalba_do i need ifenslave on 10.04 too?03:07
xibalba_doesn't look like it03:07
semarjtI got this question here: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=11048950#post11048950 it is making me crazy03:08
bazhangBDR, you have checked the menu for repositories? and that brings up another interface? and you look at the tabs there, checking the respective ones?03:08
BDRbazhang: 'the tabs' confuse me a bit only because nowhere do I see anything that says 'software sources' - what I can see is stuff like "All/Base Platform/Communications/etc." which looks like a category search thing, "Sections/Status/Origin/etc." which is not what was mentioned at all, and the list of packages that can be searched through.03:08
xibalba_if i pastebin my interfaces file would one of you guys take a look?03:09
mohammed52how do i install a batch file03:09
bazhangBDR, there is no software sources. I never mentioned that, that was from an earlier version of ubuntu. now it is done in synaptic package manager03:09
BDRbazhang: okay, repositories I found.03:10
bazhangBDR, then click it.03:10
bazhangBDR, then look for the respective software sources, also known as "repos" or software repositories, where ubuntu installs its software from. then close it, and hit reload.03:11
BDRbazhang: i did, it now has 'software sources' up.03:11
xibalba_can someone take a look at this and let me know where i may have gone wron03:11

tauntaunNewbie question: Do email clients each have their own particular file formats, and if yes, how do I commit to one?03:12
bazhangBDR, check the ones marked main universe restricted and so on. you may also wish to go to tab marked other software and select canonical partners, to install the java browser plugin for firefox03:12
tauntaunOf course I've googled around...I'm really wondering if it's easy to convert between formats if I need to change clients.03:13

szaltauntaun: most clients can use maildir and/or mbox, so choose either one & you're gtg in most cases..  maildir = every mail is its own file, accounts are organized in directories; mbox = every mail account's content is saved as one file03:14

pitlimitAre you suggesting ActionParsnip that I should download the latest version rather than Lucid if I want better performance from 64-bit?03:17
bazhangBDR, you reloaded first, correct?03:17
yagooxibalba_, use allow-hotplug ethX, use only 1 "auto" line, eg: "auto lo eth0 eth1"03:17
BDRbazhang: yes03:17
ActionParsnippitlimit: yes the next will be 12.0403:18
BDRbazhang: on reload that was the message i got03:18
pooltablepitmit i have fire fox 5.01 works fine03:18

ubottupooltable: You can use your <tab> key for autocompletion of nicknames in IRC, as well as for completion of filenames and programs on the command line.03:18
pitlimithm ok... so to be clear, Natty will potentially perform better on a 64-bit OS than Lucid03:19
bazhangBDR, check your internet is working, then switch servers, also in synaptic package manager, if it is.03:19

xibalba_no frggin clue what though yet03:25
yagooxibalba_, anything with NM in /etc/default/NetworkManager ?03:25

xibalba_yagoo, checking03:26

xibalba_yagoo, nothing03:26
yagooxibalba_, https://help.ubuntu.com/community/NetworkManager (Disabling Network Manager)03:26
bazhangBDR, also from the terminal: ping www.google.com03:26
xibalba_isn't that for desktoponly ?03:26
yagooxibalba_, if use the interfaces file.. you disable the NetworkManager (NetworkManager means end-users can change network icon settings)03:26
BDRping: unknown host www.google.com03:27
xibalba_yagoo, i'm on a server no GUI, no x-windows03:27
xibalba_no icon03:27

bazhangBDR, so you dont have an internet connection, or its a dns issue03:27
yagooxibalba_, dunno if NM default still applies03:27
[THC]AcidRainhow do i restart x?03:27
RatPackSoprahey guys, I booted from a live CD I had sitting around and maybe this is a crazy question, but is it possible to fix my installed version by reinstalling from the live CD?03:27
xibalba_NM is not on this system03:27
szalRatPackSopra: if you have one user on your machine, its user ID (uid) is 1000, if you have more than one user, you need to know your user's uid, then you can look at the directory listing ('ls -lRn /home/yourUserName > ls-lR.txt' <- that will save the directory listing as a text file)03:27
xibalba_man why is this documentation not more detailed, or point to a manual page03:28
xibalba_jeez03:28
szalRatPackSopra: what do you mean by 'fix'?03:28
BDRbazhang: Brilliant deduction! the lack of connection was what I was trying to solve. :P03:28
yagooxibalba_, if eth0/1/2/3 lo appear with ifconfig -a.. then your hardware is working03:28
xibalba_is it bond-slaves or bond_slaves03:28
bazhangBDR, why are you trying to update a system without an internet connection03:28
xibalba_there is no bond information03:28
xibalba_and no ip set on the bond003:29
xibalba_or bond03:29
xibalba_bond103:29
yagooxibalba_, btw there should be bond docs on that..03:29
BDRbazhang: I'm not sure, I thought you were trying to help me fix my usb adapter so it'd work.03:29
yagooxibalba_, did u try apt-cache search bond|grep doc ?03:29
RatPackSopraszal, well I have only had one user ever set up on this laptop. As far as fix, I mean I reinstall without wiping everything out that is currently on the hdd?03:29
szalRatPackSopra: what's the actual issue?03:29
BDRbazhang: cause i mean that was my original problem in the first place03:29
xibalba_no, but i will now03:29
bazhangBDR, you want to get the drivers on a non-internet connected device through that same device? an ethernet cable is required here. until it can be fixed03:30
yagooxibalba_, this the enslave package?03:30
xibalba_only chemistry bonds03:30
xibalba_no, i'm not using enslave. didn't think i needed to for 10.0403:30

RatPackSopraread the bottom part of the blog post and the comments03:31
xibalba_yagoo, read that03:31
BDRbazhang: No, I was not of that impression. I don't know why edbian thought I could just start using the device, but I thought maybe he knew more than I did.03:31
xibalba_yagoo, been reading //help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuBonding thats how i got started03:31
hanasakihow do I turn off the list of users in gdm?03:32
xibalba_yagoo, i'm using eth0/1 for bond0 and eth2/3 for bond103:32
LMhi, how to recover partitions using grub 2?03:32
bazhangBDR, an ethernet connection will be required then, yes03:32
szalRatPackSopra: "Page not found"03:32
BDRbazhang: my solution was "use ndiswrapper and a CD with the right drivers on it to fix things".03:32
xibalba_i thought this was going to be simple03:32
BDRbazhang: is that not a viable solution?03:32
celthunder[THC]AcidRain: most likely twinview03:32
celthunder[THC]AcidRain: sorry went afk for a bit03:32
RatPackSopraadd and l to the end of htm ....sorry03:33
yagooxibalba_, u have typos in your config.. do it slowly.03:33

BDRbazhang: what, is it going to make my computer explode? bear in mind I don't have ethernet so when you say that's needed we're talking a non-free solution.03:33
xibalba_oh that was a typo on pastebind, it's bond-slave in my config03:33
xibalba_should it be bond_slace?03:33

zykotick9hanasaki, sorry, wrong irc channel.  not sure what the path is for ubuntu.  my bad.03:34
bazhangBDR, whats the exact chipset again?03:34
yagooxibalba_, it's also bond-slaves, not bond_slave03:34
BDRbazhang: Intersil 3886.03:34
hanasakizykotick9:  what are you running?03:34
BDRWhich there was a site link for from edbian.03:34
zykotick9hanasaki, doesn't matter03:34

xibalba_especially on 10.04 w/out enslave03:39
yagooxibalba_, dunno.. maybe theres a bond module that needs to be loaded? (lsmod |grep bond)03:40
bazhangBDR, there are other choices if you are not on natty, and after such great length of troubleshooting I have lost track of what you are running03:40

yagooxibalba_, did u load the bonding module?03:41
RatPackSoprawell guys is there a way to just reinstall over a current installation without killing my data?03:41

bazhanghttp://packages.ubuntu.com/natty/all/linux-firmware-nonfree/download  BDR  since you need to do sneakernet this is the page you want03:41
xibalba_maybe you do need ifenslave enven though you dont need to conf it in neworking/interfaces03:41
xibalba_i haven't installed it yet03:41
yagooxibalba_, bond0 bond1 are devices.. they need a driver for them.. (if they're not built in the kernel.. they have be loaded)03:42
BDRbazhang: thanks, i found the page already though.03:42
yagooxibalba_, modprobe bonding03:42
bazhangBDR, download the deb transfer to usb stick via working computer -----> walk over to non-working, double click the deb file03:42
yagooxibalba_, lsmod |grep bonding ..  if it worked then u dont have to retype this on any reboot afterwards03:42
xibalba_aren't they virtual devices?03:42
xibalba_they're not hardware03:42
xibalba_it's grouping hardware logicallt03:42
bazhangBDR, you're welcome03:42
yagooxibalba_, yeah.. but even virtual devices need modules too..03:42
odixhow do i format a hard drive in linux command line, no filesystem ?03:43
yagooxibalba_, lo is virtual loopback device as well03:43
xibalba_how have you set it up?03:43
odixjust wipe the whole thing and add the boot fla03:43
xibalba_where should i enable it then?03:43
xibalba_i'm unsure03:43
yagooxibalba_, ????? I gave the command twice.. I'm hoping this is the standard for loading the bonding device..03:43
odixi cant find it online everything talks about partition and adding a filesystem, i just want a blank hard drive like you just bought it from stor03:43
xibalba_lsmod showed nothing03:44
yagooxibalba_, dmesg |grep bond  shows anything?03:44
yagooxibalba_, find /lib/modules |grep -i bond03:44
odixhow do i format a hard drive to raw ?03:45

xibalba_12 hours in this data center, ugh03:47
symptomI always get them backwards03:47
symptomactualy dd if=/dev/random of=/dev/sda03:48
symptombut you need to mount the harddrive separate from a running system..... probably03:48
symptom!dd03:48
xibalba_yagoo, i figured it out03:48
symptom!scrub03:49
rwwsymptom: that's likely to be extremely slow. You probably mean /dev/urandom :)03:49
yagooxibalba_, are you on ubuntu or not?03:49
xibalba_i didn't have alias bond0 bonding in my /etc/modproe.d/bonding.conf03:49
xibalba_yes, 10.04.203:49
symptomrww, sure03:49
xibalba_told you03:49
xibalba_however i need 2 bonds03:49
xibalba_i think i need to adjust, that two liner didn't work03:49
yagoorww, you got that wrong again.. :p03:49
RatPackSopraabout fixing a messed up ubuntu install with a live cd of the same version? Can it be done easily?03:49
* yagoo says /dev/random is slower than /dev/zero03:49
xibalba_yagoo, how would i setup bonding.conf if i wanted 2 bond groups?03:49
symptomcat /dev/urandom hehe03:50
rwwyagoo: /dev/random is also slower than /dev/urandom.03:50
xibalba_i have 4 NICs total03:50
yagooxibalba_, u need the bonding device.03:50
xibalba_i added to my bonding.conf , alias bond0 bonding \n alias bond1 bonding03:50
xibalba_but it only showed bond003:50
xibalba_not bond103:50
yagooxibalba_, I'm asking about the device.03:50
symptom!yes03:50
yagooxibalba_, "file /lib/modules"03:50
yagooxibalba_, what does that say?03:50
xibalba_directory03:51
yagooxibalba_, then run the find line i gave..03:51
xibalba_i loaded the bond module03:51
xibalba_but it's only working for one bond03:51
yagooxibalba_, what does "modinfo bonding" say ?03:52
xibalba_alot03:52
apporcI copied my kvm images from one machine to another , but found that i was unable to use them.03:52
yagooxibalba_, the version..03:52
xibalba_oh, 3.5.003:52
apporcI surfed the net and found maybe it is because of apparmor , so can anyone tell me how to update apparmor profile .03:53
yagooxibalba_, check /proc to probe the max bonds allowed.. there's also a param to the module if the limit is 1.03:53
xibalba_oh really?03:53
xibalba_ok03:53
apporcThanks in advance03:53
xibalba_yagoo where under /proc ?03:53
yagooxibalba_, not sure if u can tell--> cat /proc/net/bonding/bond003:54
xibalba_yagoo, got it, had to bring th interface up first03:55
xibalba_it doesn't say a max03:55
yagooxibalba_, so your problem primarily probably was you forgot to load the bonding the device..03:55
xibalba_yagoo, stupid me03:55
yagooxibalba_, now try testing it03:55
xibalba_bond1 isn't showing up, i dont see where to adjust the max bonds03:56
yagooxibalba_, u probably don't want auto on eth0.. maybe u want to fix the Hwaddress to eth0/1/2/303:56
xibalba_i switched them all to static, so every lines reads = iface ethX inet static03:56
yagooxibalba_, how many bonds are listed in /proc/net/bonding ?03:56
xibalba_just 1, bond003:56
xibalba_there should be a bond1 too03:56
PinGuys my Update Manager says " The package information was last updated 11 days ago presst he Check button below to check for new software updates,"  when i click check i get a popup window saying " failed to down load repository information - check your internet connection" when  i click details it says  "W:Failed to fetch http://ppa.launchpad.net/team-xbmc/ppa/ubuntu/dists/natty/main/source/Sources  404  Not Found03:57

Pin, E:Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead."03:57
yagooxibalba_, so the MACAddress for eth1/2/3 should be typed in interfaces as well..03:57
xibalba_oh, it doesn't pull the hardware?03:57
yagooxibalba_, eth0 can change for different hardware...03:57
xibalba_i dont see it in the doc page03:57
yagooxibalba_, Macaddress would prevent it from changing03:57
xibalba_any thoughts on why bond1 isn't showing /03:58
yagooxibalba_, it may change... so to be 100% u can set the macaddress for each eth0/1/2/3 and take eth0/1/2/3 out of the auto line (use eth0/1/2/3 in allow-hotplug eth0)03:58
xibalba_how come the second bond1 wont show03:59
xibalba_fiddle sticks03:59
yagooxibalba_, ps aux|grep -i mana03:59
yagooxibalba_, cat /proc/net/bonding/bond0 shows the proper interfacas?04:00
yagooxibalba_, what's the MII Status ?04:01
xibalba_checking04:01
xibalba_no bond0 is showing load-balancing04:01
xibalba_i selected bond_mode 1 for fail-over04:02
xibalba_mii status is down? what is that04:02
yagooxibalba_, also check the MAcAddresses to see if they're correct with the physical. As i said if u reboot the machine the eth0 may change.. so use macaddress setteing in the interfaces file04:02
yagooxibalba_, mii is for data-link layer..04:02
KagomeSdoes anybody else not have programs load on Natty Narwhal?04:03
yagooxibalba_, basically if its working mii-status should say the very least it's up.. even if the ip address is wrong.04:03
xibalba_everytime i run 'service networking restart' it says "unknown instance"04:03
xibalba_yagoo, could you pastebin me an example on where ot put the HW addresses?04:03
KagomeSMany programs "start" but all I get is a title bar in black or gray and then the rest of the window is completely white04:04

KagomeSno menu04:04

xibalba_it's still saying load balancing, yagoo04:04
yagooxibalba_, did u specify miimon or arp_interval?04:04
KagomeSdid somebody send me something?  I had a popup window come up, but it suddenly disappeared04:04
xibalba_no i did not04:04
xibalba_just the basics04:04
yagooxibalba_, see the warning.. do rmmod bonding.. then modprobe bonding.. read any warnings...04:04

xibalba_is it because i dont have enslave installed yet?04:06

ActionParsnipStepNjump: amarok or banshee, the itunes store is only access04:06
ActionParsnipaccessible with itunes04:06

Captainkrtekits not local05:17
Captainkrtekthanks solid_liq05:17
solid_liqnp05:17
yagooCaptainkrtek, so it's probably ur NAT box not allowing that port forwarding in05:17
Captainkrtekill see05:17
yagooCaptainkrtek, that's more complicating to fix05:18

ActionParsnipCeleronCE: what is the output of: lsb_release -d05:26
CeleronCEYeah, used to work for me but it suddenly stopped working.05:26
DaraelCeleronCE: Perhaps because it doesn't make sense to quit while in the process of saving (they want you to cancel the save first, to make sure that's what you want), or to scroll the page (you should have checked before saving).05:26
DaraelCeleronCE: I can only assume I have misunderstood.  ActionParsnip is known to be much more competent than me anyway.  Good luck.05:27

benteknon#furaffinity05:46
ActionParsnipintrouble: both do security equally well. both are stable and both are definately free05:46
introubleActionParsnip whats the difference05:46
Daraelintrouble: Well, ext3 has had longer to prove its stability.  In security terms I understand them to be equal.  I understand the error rates to be similarly low.  Ext4, however, has features.  It's the next version, after all, even if it's a "stopgap" on the way to btrfs.05:47

Daraelintrouble: Error-checking most certainly is present in ext4.  Ext3, being the version before, has been around for longer and has thus had longer to prove itself stable.05:50
rwwintrouble: If you're new, then just use what Ubuntu uses by default: ext4. It's default for a reason.05:50
Daraelintrouble: Ext4 is generally better than ext3 for the majority of purposes.05:50

introubleDarael rww i just LOVE linux. its just 2 problems. one all and majority of worlds apps are for windows. you can find any and you can find veriety. 2. its gives less command as compared to linux but windows is easy (click click thing). if i have to read and configure linux configs . i get head aches.05:53
andrewh192how do i copy remote files to another remote location via ftp?05:53
DamnSoGoodok thanks dudes :D05:53
Daraelintrouble: Apps are made for Windows in many cases, it's true.  You might want to think about searching for what you want to do, rather than the program you're used to using to do it.  That, in my experience, tends to get better results.05:54
HackNewtonandrewh192, there are many remote computing utilities available Ubuntu also have one which comes with installation05:54

andrewh192HackNewton: what would that be?05:54
HackNewtonhi pikkie05:55
pikkiei am in need of solving a network related problem with ubuntu server and windows vista laptop05:55
Daraelintrouble: As for "click click thing", software installs are definitely easier in the Debian family, such as Ubuntu (because of the repository system) and the only time I've had to mess with config files was when playing with server software that assumes a certain level of willingness to do so.05:55

andrewh192HackNewton: i found it.. says its only for windows06:02
emintrouble: there's no more xorg.conf by default06:02
introubleDarael ok06:02
emintrouble: and the audio stack is now more convoluted.06:02
introubleem aaahh.. ya. i remember . i usually messed with xorg.conf.   so what is the replacement06:03
HackNewtonandrewh192, hmm i just cheacked ok i will find solution for you just hang over here06:03
andrewh192HackNewton: ok.. thanx06:03
emintrouble: if you find someone who knows please tell me06:03
Daraelintrouble: You can place overrides in an xorg.conf that you create, but most of the config gets autogenerated on the fly for X these days.06:03
emDarael: how is it getting auto-generated?06:04
introubleDarael hm. ic. so what is the xorg.conf replaced by?/06:04
emHAL?06:04
andrewh192HackNewton: i would think there would be a way to do it via a terminal window06:04
Daraelem: The X server does it on the fly.  I'm not familiar with the mechanism.06:04
rwwintrouble: Autodetection. If you need to use xorg.conf, make an xorg.conf and it'll read it.06:04
andrewh192HackNewton: it might not be the prettiest, but i would thnk there would be some command or something that might allow that to happen06:04
introublerww ic.06:05
introubleem <rww> introuble: Autodetection. If you need to use xorg.conf, make an xorg.conf and it'll read it.06:05
emI think it was HAL but now HAL has also been replaced. I think xorg was replaced by something obscure and magical that few understand and then that obscure thing was replaced with something more mysterious yet.06:05
HackNewtonandrewh192, may be better ask here06:05
pikkieHackNewon would you know why i cannot rename files on ubuntu server share?06:05
rwwem: Xorg hasn't been replaced by anything.06:05
Daraelem: xorg is still there.  AFAIK it will continue to be there until and unless we move to Wayland.06:05
emrww: it isn't there.06:05
emNo it isnt there unless you make one.06:05
rwwem: Are you talking about xorg.conf?06:05
HackNewtonHay guys anyone knows commands fors for transfering files over ftp server06:05
emyes06:06
Daraelem: You may no longer have a /etc/X11/xorg.conf but that's because the X server autodetects config.  It still reads xorg.conf if it's present.06:06
HackNewtonpikkie, can you tell your problem in detail please i was not attending06:06
andrewh192em: was wondering how that might work06:06
emDarael: between Hardy and Intrepid it changed. Even if you do make your own xorg.conf it no longer works the same way as it used to.06:07
saliakI'm using a shell script to call a program.  one of my arguments is a string (so ./foo -a "blah blah blah").  how would i include that in a shell script variable?  my specific issue is at http://pastebin.com/vbWNtWny  for some reason the first one doesn't work06:07
pikkieHackNewton i can create new folders on ubuntu server share but not rename them and i need to do that. only from one laptop in the office.06:07
andrewh192em: or what command that would be... because i am having trouble with uploading stuff to another site and its rather large, and i already have most of what i need on another server..06:07
pikkieit runs vista06:07
introublerww Darael the install crashed. kubuntu06:07
pikkieon the laptop06:07
introuble...06:07
andrewh192em: was wondering if there was a way i could get the two servers to connect to each other, me being the mid-point, and i could just transfer it that way..06:07
HackNewtonpikkie, did you share ownership with other users ?06:08
Daraelem: I've been using xorg.conf for several releases since Hardy on my desktop (NVidia binary drivers, doncha know) and I assure you, I haven't encountered any major changes to its function beyond less and less of it being necessary.06:08
HackNewtonandrewh192, there is a command named ftp try to use it06:08
pikkiethe share belongs to nobody:nogroup and everybody else can read write and execute in that share06:08
DefectzHello, is this the correct channel for help with ubuntu Server?06:09
rwwDefectz: Here or #ubuntu-server are fine.06:09
Defectzok, thanks06:09
emDarael: with Hardy I was able to put in some settings in xorg.conf that made my logitech marble mouse rollerball mouse have the ability to scroll and then in intrepid, when you put the exact same thing into xorg.conf nothing happened.06:09
HackNewtonpikkie, okay. can you please tell which command you are using to rename your file06:09
Daraelem: So X was updated.  This happens, in software.  The fact that directives for one mouse changed their function does not imply, as you appear to be suggesting, that the entirety of xorg.conf changed the way it works.06:10
HackNewtonandrewh192, seems like ftp command can be used for your requirement06:10
pikkieHackNewton, i am trying to do the renaming of the file from a Vista pc over the network. not on the server directly.06:10
emDarael: You have convinced me that you are correct.06:11
andrewh192HackNewton: ok, so i am looking at a website that goes over the commands and stuff, but was wondering if u could give me like a example of the command line that i would use06:12
andrewh192to connect to the first server06:12
emNevertheless my Logitech Marble Mouse Rollerball was never fully functional ever again after that.06:12
HackNewtonpikkie, yes there is problem you can not change the file . means you dont have write permission if you dont directly connect to server you have only readonly permission even if you have created it ! so you have to connect to server first to access it06:14

DefectzHello all, so I have a question about Ubuntu server, I Downloaded ubuntu Server 64 bit v11.04 and i burned it onto a dvd-r disk to install on my other computer. So it says to put in the cd, restart your computer, and follow the instructions on my screen. I did this but there is no instructions only something saying Solinux 4.01, copyright ect. What do i do now?06:15
emDefectz: trololol06:15
HackNewtonandrewh192, will i never used that command but will try to use it06:16
pikkieHackNewton, when i first connected to the server share i was asked for the passwd, and then ticked the save passwd block. Now it does not ask for the passwd although the share is accessible, and i cannot disconnect to re-enter the passwd. there is no option for that. how do i disconnect, it is not a mapped drive that i can do that. it appears under the network space06:16
andrewh192HackNewton: i sorta got it figured out06:16
Defectzcan no one help me?06:16
andrewh192HackNewton: its going to take i think a little hit and miss to figure it out more06:16

But now when it boots it goes directly to a busy box , and the recovery console show's that it cant find /dev/randomsymbolsattatchedtomyraidarray.07:50

sgo11ikonia, one is in my local harddrive. another one is in external harddrive connected through usb. both are ext4.08:03
ikoniasgo11: so the two directories are 1.) source 2.) rsync - not two identical copies, but an rsync copy08:03
IledenHi! I'm trying to do a long SMB to SMB network transfer on a computer running xubuntu, but I'm experiencing a VERY weird problem. My computer loses its network connection after random amount (~20min) of inactivity, and any user activity (even moving mouse) brings it instantly back up. Any ideas what might be causing this OR how to hack around the problem? (Mimicking user behaviour with xdotool didn't seem to work.)08:03
ikoniasgo11: are both hard disks using the same sector and block size ?08:03
sgo11ikonia, i have no ideas. how to check? I created them with ubuntu parition tools.08:03
IledenAslo, there doesn't seem to be any BIOS option related to this.08:03
Wouter_@ikonia; small question, any idea how i could combine that with an XBMC live build ? Install the xbmc live on one drive and install the software raid later, let the bios just see it as 2 drives?08:03
ikoniaWouter_: hang on - is this for ubuntu ?08:04
sgo11ikonia, one is created during ubuntu installation. another one is created by gparted. I didn't change any options.08:04
ikoniasgo11: quick answer, do a "du -h" on both directories are they the same08:04
Wouter_@ikonia yes08:04
ikoniaWouter_: Wouter_ then why are you talking about xmbc live which is it's own OS08:05
sgo11ikonia, yeah. du -sh will show 5.3G. they are only slightly different.08:05
Wouter_@ikonia, i'm not using the xbmc build but a build based on ubuntu :)08:05
Wouter_@ikonia from xbmcfreak.nl08:06
zonemahi all.. anyone who can tell me how to change the color in konsole "jacob@desktop:~/map" and not the output of konsole?08:06
ikoniaWouter_: ok - so it's not actually ubuntu, it's it's own build based on ubuntu08:06
tk`can someone help me setup kdump on ubuntu08:07
Wouter_@ikonia kind of ubuntu without the windowmanager to keep it lightweight (just an 1.6 atom with vdpau)08:07
ikoniasgo11: how slightly in du -hs08:07
ikoniaWouter_: I suggest you contact them for support then as I don't support peoples custom ubuntu distros08:07
icerootwhat is the common way to encrypt a raid1 (md0). encrypting sda1 and sdb1 and then build the raid? or build md0 and then encrypt md0? what is better for performance and when a disc is failing? is encrypting md0 the better way?08:07
tk`i have compiled the kernel with required config. some reason kdump doesnt start on panic08:07
ikoniaiceroot: the encyption should be done on the filesystem - not the device08:07
ikoniatk`: we don't support custom kernels08:08
sgo11ikonia, I mean du -sh will show the same size. but du -s will show slightly different result as what I posted.08:08
tk`i meant i hv to enable kexec etc for kdump08:08
ikoniasgo11: then I'd be content it works08:08
r_avalonzonema: best i can tell you is to go to edit>preferences>colors and just start testing which color goes where08:08
Wouter_@ikonia seems fair, but i'll try it in ubuntu first :)08:08
ikoniatk`: we don't support custom kernels08:08
icerootikonia: so you mean md0?08:08
ikoniaiceroot: yes08:08
Wouter_@ikonia anyway thanks =)08:08
ikoniaiceroot: you can do it on devices, but on my experience that is a bad idea08:08
icerootikonia: so mdadm is syncing the crypted fs to both devices08:08
tk`so u mean cant talk about it here?08:09
zonemar_avalon: okay, i will try that way08:09
ikoniaiceroot: well, no, as if you're "using it" it's unencypted08:09
=== Cain` is now known as Cain
ikoniaiceroot: it's only encypted when you're not using it, so if someone tried to use it without the encyption key it would be garbage08:09
sgo11ikonia, thanks. but why are the sizes different? low level stuff? :)08:09
ikoniasgo11: yes, as I suggest slightly different block sizes, head sizes etc etc.08:09
ikoniasgo11: it's quite unusual these days but can happen08:10
tk`is there an ubuntu kernel irc channel?08:10
icerootikonia: ok, so in the first step i will build my sw-raid1 and after then i will encrypt md0. thank you08:10
sgo11ikonia, ok. sure. thanks.08:10
ikoniaiceroot: in my opinion, I think that's a good config08:11
whowantstolivefohi people, is there anyone knows how to install oracle jinitiator to ubuntu ? for firefox i need this plugin and i cant display pages where i want to use... please help08:11

SuperLagszal: but I'm using the default UI with 10.10, and it's interface is even better than Natty in classic mode11:21
DaraelSuperLag: It looks just like Maverick did to me.  That sounds like your gnome-settings-daemon isn't running.  I don't know why that's happened, but it should be fixed if you open the appearences dialog.11:21

SuperLagDr_Willis: I knew what I meant, just missed the * on the end. That's why I corrected it. :)11:27
DaraelSuperLag: You don't need to rm /var/cache/apt/archives - just apt-get clean instead of apt-get autoclean.  Other than that, there's a tool you can use to bzip your executables to make them smaller... if I can remember what it is.11:27
MK``Ahh. I assumed it was due to some broken config when I upgraded11:27

I've searched on 20 forum's for an awnser b ut i cant figure out why, anyone any idea ?=)11:32
DaraelDr_Willis: SuperLag was mostly complaining about classic in Natty having issues with the theming failing.11:32
Dr_Willisunity disent work right for me on my desktop11:33
DaraelWouter_: For software raid, you'd have an easier time using the alternate cd.  Unfortunately I can't actually suggest a fix, but I thought I'd get that suggestion out of the way.11:33

Wouter_@Darael thanks for the tip anyway :)11:33
Dr_Willisi always cistomize my themes.11:34
DaraelSuperLag: Talking of Classic: You won't be able to use Gnome2 from Oneiric in any case: It's Gnome3, with what that implies: Gnome Shell.11:34
Infernetkubuntu, a very nice distro11:34
SuperLagDarael: I thought it was Unity or nothing?11:35
DaraelSuperLag: Nope, Gnome3 is to be available.  Admittedly last time I tried it on my Oneiric box gnome-shell wouldn't start, but I understand that's fixed now.  There's probably a different bug breaking it - that's alpha releases for you.11:36
Wouter_q:Does ubuntu need an /boot partition for the grub to be installed in software raid?11:37
DaraelSuperLag: It may be the case that only Unity is installed by default, but Gnome3 was definitely to be supported.  And even if it wasn't, it'd be in the repos.  They're good like that.11:37

Wouter_I have mounted my software raid in the Ubuntu Live CD and i'm trying to install Grub to one of the drives. (sudo grub-install /dev/sda) gives me : (/usr/bin/grub-probe : error : cannot stat 'aufs'). Anyone can help me with this ?12:22
SinarSheblbazhang: ATI , Intel12:23
vikapiWouter_: shouldn't it be /dev/md0..im not sure though12:24
Wouter_@vikapi i did that too, same error12:24
bazhangSinarShebl, conflicting reports on that one, some have reported that catalyst 11.6 *does* work with the ati card, while others are having issues with card not being recognized12:24
Wouter_@vikapi but i think the grub should be on the physical drive12:25
Wouter_seeing as thats what the bios see's12:25
Wouter_on both drives actually12:25
SinarSheblwell, is it possible to disable this feature ??12:25
bazhangSinarShebl, only use the one card? ati/intel which12:26
SinarSheblI mean at the worst case ?12:26
SinarSheblATI12:26
bazhangSinarShebl, of course, thats the main issue. presently12:26

noipHow can I see a list of recently updated packages? I'm pretty sure it was an update from two days ago that has completely messed up my internet connection12:28
blinkybhi. please browsing on ubuntu is becoming extremely slow! what is that all about? i checked ram, nothing wrong. last week it was just fine. help please.12:28
Wouter_@vikapi ah, i had forgotten about that one, looked at it when i started this problem.. 7 hours ago -.-12:28
SinarSheblI mean the display card is expected to switch automatically on need12:28
bluewulfon my level - wiz12:28
SinarSheblhow could I disable this feature if it didn't work well?12:28

Picinoip: There is a log of all installed packages in /var/log/dpkg.log12:30

SinarSheblDr_willis: so if I bought a new laptop would this be a problem for me or I should wait ?12:31
noipPici, I'm looking at that log file. Why does it show dates from next week?12:32
Dr_WillisSinarShebl:  its too new a feature to even predict. do you really need the 2 video stuff?  brand new 'things' are always going to be less supported. but a laptop thats been out for 6mo. should work well.12:33
Wouter_I have mounted my software raid in the Ubuntu Live CD and i'm trying to install Grub to one of the drives. (sudo grub-install /dev/sda) gives me : (/usr/bin/grub-probe : error : cannot stat 'aufs'). Anyone can help me with this ?12:33

andrej4kGrub and parted don't see any partitions.13:44
Dr_Williscould be specific to your ssh client also13:44
surfdueDr_Willis, I believe it has to do with term-color13:44

Dr_Willisif the cam is hd. i think so13:48
AlexDevilLXThx13:48
samineruspacebug: -a preserves a lot of unnecessary metadata, I'd prefer not to use it. Though that may be causing it to see them as different files...that might be it!13:49
surfduesipior, whats happening is it is showing the ^H but it does actually backspace, example when I do TAB it does not show the tab result but it does actually perform the tab.13:49
Dr_Willistry it and see?13:49
sipiorsurfdue: make sure the appropriate entries are checked in the "Advanced" tab of the Terminal.app config.13:49
BluesKajgrub is gone due to your windows install . andrej4k  , but the data is still there then  i think a grub restore will make it accessible13:49

ubottuYour GUI file manager's Trash folder is located at ~/.local/share/Trash/ for files moved to trash from your hard disk and .../.Trash-userid/ on external devices for files moved to trash from the device.13:53

bob_Hello, I need some help with my video card drivers.  I have the GeForce4 MX 440 AGP 8x and currently have the nouveau drivers installed.  I unsuccessfully attempted to install drivers from nvidia.com and now when I attempt to install the nvidia-96 package from synaptic, it fails.  It indicates I need to uninstall the nvidia.com drivers.  But I don't know how.15:03

Spamiclesdoes anyone know the command for comparing two documents and the output gives you a + or a - next to the line to tell you if it was in one document but not the other? I thought it was diff but that doesn't give me the output I'm thinking of. Thanks!16:26

admgy22 can someone help me resolve a 502 - bad gateway error (I think it's very simple, like restarting uwsgi...I just killed that process, which started this).  but I'm a really bad sys admin!!  (this is a dev server).  Thanks..  (btw it's a bog-standard pylons setup)16:27
dbuggerI dont want to get in the details about it, but belive me, if it was possible, I would. Its clearly simplier to just move them :P16:27

roastedIf I'm running an Ubuntu server with 2 NICs and DHCP-server, would both NICs hand out IPs?16:29
ikoniaroasted: you can configure DHCP to bind to one/many interfaces16:29
ikoniaroasted: be careful though if you are giving out different IP ranges as to that your nics are confiugred on16:29
Baltazaarroasted, you choose what nic to use in dhcpd.conf16:30
ikoniaroasted: it's not in dhcpd.conf it's actually an argument passed to dhcpd at startup16:31
roastedikonia, yeah that's what I'm thinking. I was going to have the server kick out one range on NIC1 and another range on NIC2, with each range being VLAN'd16:31
Baltazaarroasted, by default it listens to the first in your ethX list I think16:31
ikoniaroasted: so you'll need to define two ranges16:31
roastedikonia, I have two labs in question, each 30 systems, so I'd like to have NIC1 give out a certain range to Lab A and NIC2 to handle Lab B16:31
ikoniaBaltazaar: the default is it listens on all cards16:32
Baltazaarroasted, ikonia yes if that is what he wants16:32
ikoniaroasted: that should be quite straight forward16:32
Andy-at-homeguys, whats the software that produces the try\install menu when booting netbook edition? begins withs with a U16:32
roastedikonia, I was hoping it was, I just figured I'd ask since I never used a multi NIC ubuntu dhcp server.16:32
roastedikonia, would everything go into the dhcp config file?16:32
AlexDevilLXHi all here is a problem16:32
AlexDevilLXhttp://s002.radikal.ru/i200/1107/ff/e6902d1c87ad.jpg16:32
BaltazaarAndy-at-home, netbotin?16:32
roastedunetbootin*16:33
roasted:P16:33
Andy-at-homenah its something else16:33
Andy-at-homeub...?16:33
ikoniaroasted: dhcpd despite being dumb will work out which address to give to which interface, eg: the 10.11 range will go out of the card with 10.11.216.1 assigned to it, the 192.168 range will go out of the card with 192.168.24.1 address16:33
Baltazaarroasted, tnx! ;-)16:33
AlexDevilLXOk no problem16:33
roastedikonia, oh nice. that's it? I didn't think it would default to the interface assigned into the same scope.16:33
roastedit makes sense now that I think about it though16:34
Andy-at-homeubiquity16:34
ikoniaroasted: exactly it can't hand out ranges different to what it's on if that makes sense16:34
roastedikonia, bingo. that sounds easy to do then.16:34
BaltazaarAndy-at-home, oh :P16:34
Andy-at-homesomeone should mention that if its install and someone has used universal usb creator that the menu is redundant16:34
ikoniaroasted: two ranges defined inthe config, you're done (pretyt much)16:34
roastedikonia, now, I actually have 4 NICs on this server. I KNOW 1 gigabit NIC would serve 30 clients based on my current setup. Think it'd be worth it to bond the 4 NICs into some sort of redundancy, 2 per lab?16:35
Andy-at-homewith persistance anyway16:35
llutzhea16:35
roastedikonia, so my default idea was 1 NIC per range/VLAN, but that leaves 2 NICs just kinda... sitting there unused, ya know?16:35
ikoniaroasted: a dhcp request is minute, you could server 1000's of clients on a 10meg card, no need to bond, you're just going to complicate things16:35
BaltazaarI've really come to enjoy the new Unity thing16:35
usermanageranyone here know any simple cron command that i can use to test out cron service ?16:35
roastedikonia, this is a thin client lab. not JUST a dhcp server.16:35
ikoniaroasted: there is no need to bond16:35
roastedikonia, it hands out IP addresses and the clients PXE boot to the server, pulling down LTSP images.16:36
roastedikonia, okay.16:36
Baltazaarroasted, how many clients do you have?16:36
roastedikonia, just wanted to make sure you got what I was doing, in case the bandwidth load of LTSP would warrant bonding.16:36
JR_wGnome question maybe someone here can answer:  On ArtistX live, how can one change the dark and unreadable (for me) windows on apps like dolphin to something lighter and easily readable?16:36
ikoniaroasted: for context I've just had 130 machines built on a 100meg card using pxe16:36
roastedBaltazaar, 60 minimal, upwards of 70 maybe16:36
roastedikonia, with LTSP?16:36
Baltazaarroasted, no problem then!16:36
surfdueJaws skipper: damn you roasted him!16:36
usermanageranyone here know any simple cron command that i can use to test out cron service ?16:36
ikoniaroasted: that used about %30 of the bandwidth, no not ltsp, a bit lighter, but just to give you context16:37
roastedusermanager, mkdir? touch file?16:37
usermanagerroasted what's that16:37
roastedikonia, I gotcha. But yeah I have 1 gigabit NIC serving 30 now, so branching upwards I know 2x would serve 60, etc. Like I said I just didn't want to miss out on an advantage I might gain from bonding in this situation.16:37
roastedusermanager, mkdir creates a directory, and touch creates a blank file.16:37
Baltazaarusermanager, commands! that shows you if anything happens16:37
ikoniaroasted: it will server over 30, I asure you16:37
ikoniaroasted: if's more likley your bottleneck will be at the switch rather than your card16:38
roastedusermanager, if you set crontab to mkdir /home/usermanager/test, it should create "test" directory in your home folder16:38
roastedikonia, yeah, I'm trying to organize things in the closet to be a little more practical, as I want the server/clients on the SAME switch.16:38
ikoniaroasted: there will be no advantage to bonding in this example16:38
roastedikonia, not only that, but the traffic will be vlan'd16:38
ikoniaroasted: keep it simple - 1 nic, 1 switch port16:38
roastedikonia, can you give me an example where I would benefit from bonding? I've never had a *need* for it, so I never used it.16:38
ikoniaroasted: you've tried to use it beoffore with terrible results16:39
roastedusermanager, it would just be a simple way to see if crontab is working :P16:39
roastedikonia, I was also using a guide with 8.10 :P16:39
ikoniabefore even16:39
usermanagerwhat's the full command that i should type ?16:39
ikoniaroasted: 8.10's a great release, just keep in mind it's totally dead now16:39
roastedikonia, I was reading more about it, and 10.04 was a new setup with bonding entirely.16:39
AlexDevilLXOK16:39
roastedikonia, no like I didn't realize the guide I Was using was FOR 8.10, I was using it for 10.1016:39
thunder1212hi, i am planning to buy ncomputing's x550 series desktop virtualization kit. is it ok ?16:39
Baltazaarusermanager, you have to configure the cron jobs in the crontab16:39
roastedikonia, I went back to the LTSP chat and spoke to the user who linked me to it, at which point they told me which distro they built the guide for. I had no idea prior.16:40
usermanagerjust type mkdir /home.......... ?16:40
ikoniaroasted: ahhh, I see,16:40
roastedikonia, I did more reading and 10.04 was very different with bonding than 8.10 was, which may have been where a lot of my issues were.16:40
ikonia!cron > usermanager16:40
ubottuusermanager, please see my private message16:40
roastedikonia, so that being said, it kind of re-vamped my confidence a little bit to give bonding another try - IF it's beneficial.16:40
ikoniaroasted it's actually not different at all, a few very minor differnces16:41
roastedikonia, yeah, there wasn't too much that was different, but enough that it made me wonder.16:41
roastedikonia, I mean last time I was trying to edit config files that didn't exist, etc.16:41
ikoniaroasted: honestly bonding hasn't changed in a long time16:41
roastedikonia, so what kind of setup would warrant it to be beneficial from bonding interfaces?16:41
Baltazaarusermanager, here is a page for you: http://aplawrence.com/BDD/bbcronbasics.html16:42
ikoniaroasted: it all depends on a lot of things, it's more a case of applying common sense and working out if you will benifit from it and wahat issues you'll got, eg: TCP packaet reponse to multiple nics16:43
roastedikonia, I see. a lot of the reading I do seems to suggest that bonding is beneficial if you want a "backup NIC". It came off as like, a server with 2 PSUs, one fails, other is there running to continue work.16:44
Baltazaarroasted, kindof16:44
roastedBaltazaar, well if that's the case, I can SSH in and swap which eth is in charge and be done with it in 2 minutes...16:44
roastedBaltazaar, not that I have true redundancy, but if that's the reasoning behind its existence, it seems like very little benefit.16:45
Baltazaarroasted, well, it gives you redundancy, plus aggregation16:46
=== roberto is now known as scorpion19
=== Xei_ is now known as Xei
scorpion19hi guys16:46
ikoniaroasted: sorry, had terrible lag there for a second16:46
roastedikonia, all good.16:46
ikoniaroasted: there are many benifits, the issue is how they apply to you and their value to your setup and overhead16:46
ikoniaroasted: eg: it can give you great performance increaes, or superb redundency, but it won't do anything if your network cards are not flooded, or your switch can't deal with a trunked interface, see what I mean16:47
roastedikonia, I see. So for my case, think it's a bit worthless? Or is it worthy to look into? After all, this server doesn't have to be up till Sept 1... so I can take my time reading if I need.16:47
roastedikonia, yeah.16:47
ikoniaeg: if you think 2 x 1GB card = 2gb traffic, you wo'nt see anything unless your system is hetting 1.1gb of constant use16:47
BaltazaarIt's tha same as trunking in a way16:47
roastedikonia, it's like upgrading to a gig network with a 100 meg network card. No benefit.16:48
Baltazaarroasted, Its the same as trunking in a way16:48
ikoniaroasted: in my view, it's worthless and will cause you headache16:48
roastedikonia, gotcha. I appreciate your time.16:48
ikoniaroasted: eg: your sending dhcp out of a bonded interface, the layer 2 responses going back to a virtual interface for the ack.....Hmmm do you want to be trouble shooting that for no reason ?16:48
roastedikonia, like I said, I know 1 will serve each lab beautifully, I just hate to see 2 unused NICs unless I truly don't need them.16:48
Baltazaarroasted, agree. shooting birds with a cannon in your case16:48
ikoniaroasted: that said if you've got a card that's flooded and slowing down your network....it's worth the effort, but I don't believ eyou have16:48
roastedikonia, haha, no, hardly :P16:49
ikoniaroasted: if you don't need the 2 nics, save them for later, you will use them in other ways, I assure you16:49
ikoniaroasted: you'll need one for a random private backup, or a test lan or $something - it always turns up16:49
roastedikonia, yeah, this serve has a lot of potential for upgrading. by upgrading I mean adding more to it.16:49
scorpion19are u talking about ccna or something like that?16:49
roastedikonia, it has a pair of six core procs and 24gb of RAM. quite a powerhouse for what I'm doing, so I'd like to expand on it a bit more.16:49
ikoniaroasted: a 3rd lan will be needed as $something wants to use it, or something, better to have "spare" rather than seeing them as wasted16:50
roastedikonia, good point.16:50
roastedikonia, I'll just stick to 1 NIC per vlan/lab16:50
ikoniaroasted: in seriousness, look at things such as backups, no point backing up the machine over the production lan and killing your clients16:50
roastedikonia, well, I don't know what I would need to back up in this case.16:50
ikoniaroasted: if possible patch one of the nicks into your backup infrastructure, and make backups go out of that one dedicated nic, thus not impacting your ltsp stuff16:50
dbuggerCan someone tell me how can I remove the splash screen from the grub? I want old fashioned dmesg16:50
ikoniaroasted: the server !!! if it breaks, you delete a file etc16:51
roastedikonia, this LTSP server is just a "host" that allow the clients to function in a cheaper fashion than traditional desktops16:51
roastedikonia, oh, I thought you meant nightly backups16:51
Baltazaarikonia, you know your networking. Network admin? I worked 10 years with various networking tasks16:51
roastedikonia, I make clonezilla images of the server itself, though16:51
ikoniaBaltazaar: I'm not a network specialist, no16:51
Baltazaarikonia, well, you know your stuff16:51
ikoniaroasted: you know what I'm saying though, there are plenty of uses that would benifit your network more than a bond for the sake of bonding16:51
ikoniaBaltazaar: thank you, I'm flattered16:52
roastedikonia, I back up the entire OS on a CZ image as well as the chroot for the thin client. It's all I need to get a new setup going within minutes.16:52
Baltazaarikonia, lol16:52

tertl3how can I kill gnome-screensaver?17:17
Dr_Willismikeycgto:  could be a quoteing issue also. make a script that calls the command with the option. to eliminate the spaces. perhaps17:17
coz_tertl3,  killall gnome-screensaver17:17
Baltazaartertl3, killall gnome-screensaver?17:17
mikeycgtowell i made the keyboard shortcut call "google-chrome wired.com" thinking maybe it was spaces17:17

mikeycgtoand worked as expected17:17
linuxnoob5Baltazaar: 2097xxx.. swapped? says im not using any swap..sorry just confused17:18

Dr_Willismikeycgto:  i never use shortcuts like that. ;)17:18
ghostcorejust get an droid and ditch apple lol17:18
mikeycgtoyeah i was just testing it for spaces17:18
Baltazaarlinuxnoob5, that is the ammount of RAM cached into disk sectors, but the number you need to look at is 39916 it is the ammount used by your applications!17:19
ssbr_How do I get Python's unit test suite installed?17:20
ssbr_I have some code that depends on a module from the unit test suite. but even installing python-dev doesn't give me that :(17:20
GlooskepBuenos días México17:20
linuxnoob5Baltazaar: so it uses unused ram to cache files for faster loading? or?17:21
ghostcoreI gotta say I am loving 11.04 (after I gutted out the unity crap mind you) only thing left to do is theme this pig out17:21
Baltazaarlinuxnoob5, yes17:21
linuxnoob5Baltazaar: ah :P17:21
Mandrewhi this is not for ubuntu right?: # yum install scala.noarch17:22
xanguaMandrew: is not17:22
ghostcorenope17:22
maverikhhi all, not sure if this is ubuntu seeting issue or samba server issue.  i have multiple static ip's withing the same subnet. i have a ubuntu + samba server running on x.x.x.1 some open shares.... it all works fine while im behind the gateway from my isp. i can see the shares via wins, xxxxxxx.com or by the ip directly................  if i go home i am unable to access the shares via ip or xxxxxxxx.com17:22
linuxnoob5Baltazaar: so -/+ buffers/cache is my line to watch :) thanks :)17:22
mikeycgtoyeah i even made the command "/usr/local/bin/spotify.rb" and its just not calling it all (modified the script to see if was even being called)17:22

Wouter_Can anyone help me with Software Raid and Grub?17:38
Wouter_I can't get it to boot17:38
k1rkWouter_, I've always just had a separate OS drive when I do software RAID.17:39
Wouter_k1rk, is is possible to combine ?17:39
k1rkI've never figured out how to do it.17:40
Wouter_k1rk, if i do find /boot/grub/stage1 it says error 15: file not found17:40
Wouter_k1rk, when i boot the pc, i see grub. thats it17:40
k1rkGrub would have to be able to start mdadm to initialize the array before you could boot.17:40
k1rkAnd mdadm can't be stored on the array I don't think.17:40
Wouter_k1rk, yea the array is working fine in the live cd with mdadm17:40
noipIs there a way to roll back updates?17:41
Wouter_aha, so i should just partition it so the Linux partition is out of the mirror and only my storage (mediacenter) is in raid ?17:41
Wouter_@k1rk but then if my primary drive would die my linux install would die too..17:42
k1rkYeah Wouter_ my server's been running that way for a long time.17:42
k1rkI don't know of any way to do it. I'd be interested to find out if there was a good way.17:43
k1rkBut my server is running a really old 20GB IDE Maxtor drive for OS drive and it's still chugging 2 years later. :P
