exutuxgogeta: you right00:18
ActionParsnipbjornerikk: it reloads the driver. I recommend you add that in /etc/rc.local so that it runs at boot00:18
exutuxwillystylee: do you have nomodeset now in that file?00:19
dr_willisSitFly:  has it ever worked?00:19

notNicolasHi. I have ubuntu on a 40 gig partition, and there is a swap partition right after it00:21
ActionParsnipmsg ubottu !nomodeset00:21
resnofaint545: http://dpaste.com/577857/00:21
notNicolasI'd like to expand the size of my partition, but I can't because of that swap being in the way of having a continuous block of data00:21
SitFlyActionParsnip: with this method, do I need to pay for the tethering feature still?00:21
nnullrww: i am00:21
notNicolasis there a solution to this problem? (moving around the swap partition)00:21
rwwnnull: That would probably be why. FAT32 has a per-file size limit of 4GB.00:21

matlocki was trying to fdisk it and it said i can't write to the disk00:41

rwwmatlock: Obvious question: is the write-protect tab on the SD card set?00:41
matlockso it would mark it clean and ubuntu would quit marking it as dirty00:41

matlockrww, you read my pastebin?00:41

Blue1bencc: depends on 2 things - software in the router, and whether isp offers ipv600:41

matlockagain  /dev/mmcblk1: Read-only file system while setting up superblock00:42
benccBlue1: if the router is getting ipv4 from the isp, can't it provide ipv6 for ubuntu?00:42
rwwmatlock: ah, true.00:42
matlockso it's the driver marking the sdhc as read only because it wasn't cleanly ejected00:43
gogetabencc: i gues if you tell it to hand out ipv6 localy yes00:43
matlocknow if I could only bypass the drivers mark enough to repartition it.00:43
Blue1bencc: this is a question the isp must answer - cox for instance does NOT currently provide ipv600:43
edbianbencc: In theory, it could provide whatever address scheme it wants inside.  The real question is, does your router support ipv6 addressing at all?00:43
matlockOR pass it to windows in my VM00:43
TBotNikexutux: Sorry to confuse you that was from before I disconnected the WRT router, since it was sending those confusing IPs.00:43

rwwgogeta: GNOME 3 is not in 11.04's repositories.00:50
gogetarww: well get the ppa then00:50
rbnswartzrww it will be in 11.1000:50
jointin the latest alpha for 11.10 gnome 3 is a choice at boot up. but it doesnt work yet00:50
rwwrbnswartz: I'm aware, I just said that.00:50
rwwgogeta: I'm not talking about the PPA, I'm talking about Ubuntu itself.00:50
rbnswartzrww my bad :)00:50
yellowgtoSo that only way to get out of xserver is to change my root password :-/00:50
edbianjoint: I just read on /. that the boot time is even faster!00:50
yellowgto?00:50
rwwyellowgto: No, I just told you how to get out of Xorg.00:51
gogetarww: so did they acully switch to wayland or they still xorg00:51
rwwgogeta: Xorg00:51
dr_williswayland is still a work in progress...00:51
gogetaheh00:51
rwwgogeta: as sabdfl said at the time, Wayland is a while off00:51
dr_willislong while off i imagine.00:51
gogetarww: yea but they where claming it to 11.1000:51
edbianWriting a graphics server has got to be a huge projec.t00:52
rwwgogeta: I didn't see sabdfl or anyone "official" say that.00:52
javierls00:52
=== javier is now known as Jays
=== raj is now known as cypha``
=== cypha`` is now known as raj
rwwgogeta: But then, it wouldn't surprise me if they never switch. Wayland isn't stable enough and the proprietary vendor support isn't there.00:53
PinHey guys I have Ubuntu 11.04 when tryin to logon using my ubuntu starts up but i only see my desktop icons and wallpaper, however when i used Ubuntu classic everythign loads up fine.00:53
gogetarww: cannel was claing to switch to it with 11.10 i guess the idea got trashed00:53
=== Jays is now known as j2bv16
gogetarww: good thing as you said its still to early00:54
rwwgogeta: Again, I didn't see anyone official say Ubuntu would switch to it with 11.10. And I was paying attention :P00:54
rbnswartzPin In your Ubuntu classic are you able to enable the compiz visual effects?00:54
Pinyes00:54
rwwWhat we actually say and what the blogosphere repeats in its echo chamber are two rather different things.00:54
graphicscardhelpHow would I go about updating my graphics card?00:55
PinI have desktop cube , desktop rotate etc00:55
gogetarww: it was like 6 motnhs ago00:55
gogetarww: shortly after 11.0400:55
jointdont mess with the graphic card drivers00:55
rwwgogeta: I don't think this conversation is going anywhere if you don't have a link :P00:55
rbnswartzPin Try hitting Ctrl+Alt+T and then type compiz --replace00:55
jointjust install the ones that come with the distro00:55

graphicscardhelpjoint, the one that came with the distro isn't working too well with 11.04 natty... Its all glitchy as hell.00:57
rwwgogeta: I've read that. Where does it say anything about Ubuntu 11.10?00:58
joint11.04 is glithchy by nature00:58
jointif you mess up with updating drivers, you can screw your whole system00:58

ChaorainI'm trying to get an IR blaster working on 10.04 and I need to upgrade LIRC, Little help?00:59
joint11.10 will be better00:59
Seven_Six_TwoI want to try 11.10. Would you recommend alpha2 or the daily build?00:59
Pinok I tried ctrl + alt + T but nothing happened00:59
jointnaa. i would wait00:59
rwwSeven_Six_Two: ask #ubuntu+100:59
Pinno terminal came up at all00:59
Seven_Six_Tworww, of course. I forgot. Thanks01:00
jointno sence in running a beta linux distro. they have a new final one every 6 months01:00
rbnswartzPin Sorry that is about all I have for you someone else might be able to help. Or try askubuntu.com.01:00
yellowgtoAight back01:01
jointupdated video drivers should be in 11.10 i would assume01:01
faint545Pin, what is your problem?01:01
Pinok01:01
jointyou can try to upgrade the video drivers, but its hard. u have to read a lot01:01
PinHey guys I have Ubuntu 11.04 when tryin to logon using my ubuntu starts up but i only see my desktop icons and wallpaper, however when i used Ubuntu classic everythign loads up fine. How do i fix my ubuntu01:01
jointthey should just make the video drivers so u can just add a ppa or something01:01
delacPin: have you been playing with the compizconfig settings manager? maybe accidentaly unchecked the unity plugin?01:02
PinI tried doing ctrl + alt + T under unity and it didnt load up any console01:02
PinYea it got messed up thru compiz01:02
delaccan you alt-f2?01:02
Pini havent tried that01:02
PinWhat do you want me to type when i Alt + f2 under unity?01:03
delacPin: try to start the compizconfig settings manager01:03
Pinok be right back going to log out and goto unity01:03
Pinim in ubuntu classic at the moment be right back01:03
jointdont worry about that bug that says the video driver is activated, but currently not in use01:03
jointits working if u have the unity interface01:03
faint545I for one am not fan of the Unity interface at alllllll. why did they change it anyway?01:05
edbianfaint545: They were not fans of the gnome3 interface01:06
faint545so it was either that or unity?01:06
ChaorainIs the 11.10 Alpha 2 any more stable than 11.04?01:06
edbianfaint545: They're trying to have an OS that works well on different form factors01:06
jointso they can use it to push software01:06
edbianfaint545: well when they made the decision unity didn't exist.  It was gnome3 or 'we build something else'01:07
jointunity is tied in the software center01:07
faint545edbian, what do you mean by "an OS that works well on different form factors"01:07
dr_willisTablet/netbook/desktop/laptop/phone/pocketwatch/cybernetic implant01:08
Pinok i was somehow able to make a launcher for my IRC, im back im not in ubuntu classic now. I have terminal open, what do i type?01:08
edbianfaint545: what dr_willis said.  Those are examples of different form factors01:08
faint545ohhhhh. okay.01:08
delacPin: were you able to start the compizconfig settings manager?01:08
Pinno , how do i start it01:08

KaleidoscopeGood, I need to resize my Linux partition, but Im not sure how01:17
CoreyKaleidoscope: Step 1, take good backups.01:18
lapagaKaleidoscope: also a livecd01:18
KaleidoscopeGot the Live CD, No backups =P01:18
CrusaderADInstall gparted from the software center and use that, and definetly back stuff up01:19
mousegparted is a good toop01:19
mouse*tool01:19
KaleidoscopeThe problem I had was that since my linux partition is mounted, It won't let me change it, Will gparted let me?01:19
lapagaKaleidoscope: that is why you use a live cd01:19
KaleidoscopeAhh ok01:20
CrusaderADWhy do u want to resize it?01:20
KaleidoscopeMakes sense >.>01:20
nocilisdoes anyone have experience running a windows-ubuntu ad-hoc network?01:20

D4rkSilverHi, would anyone please tell me how does one auto-mount /dev/sda1 on /home/user/sda1 ?01:22
Guest24725fstab?01:22
Guest24725or am i being dumb?01:22
faint545nah, fstab would be the way01:23
WhyHelloTherehi guys I'm getting the following error: "timeout: down: /etc/service/redis_default: 1s, normally up, want up" when I try to run "sudo /usr/bin/chpst -u root /usr/bin/sv restart /etc/service/redis_default" - could anyone help me out?01:23
D4rkSilverWell I suppose it is indeed fstab but I don't really want to mess it...01:23
th0rD4rkSilver: you add a line in /etc/fstab01:23
faint545D4rkSilver.. its pretty simpl.. All you need to do is find the UUID of the disk, and create a line in FSTAB01:23
FatsDTI am using lucid lynx.  Which package provides the propietary nvidia driver?01:23
edbianFatsDT: there is more than one. hang on01:24
nocilisanyone have any ideas (about setting up an ubuntu-windows ad-hoc network?)?01:24
Guest24725nocilis: not me01:25
edbianFatsDT: http://packages.ubuntu.com/search?keywords=nvidia&searchon=names&suite=lucid&section=all01:25
faint545@D4rkSilver, the line will look like this: UUID=[ID] [Mount Point] [Type] [Options] [Dump] [Pass]. What is the type of the drive? Ntfs? Ext4?01:25
delacI can't find the Adobe Flash Local Settings Manager from System -> Preferences even though I have flash 10.3. Any way to get it there? Is there a command to start it from terminal?01:26
D4rkSilverfaint545: does that looks like right? "/dev/sda1   /home/user/sda1   auto   rw,auto,exec,utf8   0   0"01:26
PyraineI've got a really dumb question01:27
CrusaderADShoot01:27
Pyraineis this the same room as the one the freenode server?01:27
rwwPyraine: yes. irc.ubuntu.com redirects to chat.freenode.net01:27
lapagait is the freenode server01:27
CrusaderADYep01:27
faint545D4rkSilver, I personally would use the UUID to identify the disk since naming conventions such as /dev/sd* are not really absolute. they can change.01:27
faint545*wouldnt01:27
faint545err.. would lol01:28
Pyrainewizardry.01:28
D4rkSilverfaint545: ahh I see01:28
Guest24725D4rkSilver:I agree with faint54501:28
faint545D4rkSilver, but from what you gave me it seems OK.01:29
ScottyBoyDoes anyone know if Ubuntu 11.04 works with Mac PowerPC processors?01:29
PyraineNow for my real question... does anybody know of a more up to date HD-Audio-Models.txt than the one that is on www.kernel.org?01:29
rww!ppc | ScottyBoy01:29
ubottuScottyBoy: PowerPC.  Formerly used by Apple for the Macintosh line of computers. Variants are now used in popular gaming consoles. PPC was a fully supported Ubuntu architecture up to and including edgy. It is now a community port, see https://wiki.ubuntu.com/PowerPCFAQ01:29
edbianScottyBoy: Not anymore01:29
faint545D4rkSilver, to find UUID, simply type... sudo blkid /dev/sda101:29
edbianScottyBoy: eh, ubottu is more correct than me01:29
nociliskk then bye01:29
PinGuys whats wrong with my Ubuntu! I just fixed my Ubuntu unity thru compiz but now i restarted the computer and my computers resolutions arnt working!!! > screenshot http://i.imgur.com/b7bWY.png01:29
D4rkSilverfaint545: kk thanks =)01:30
carloshello, my processor can run at 32 and 64 bits, which is the difference between installing 64 or 32 bit linux?01:30
edbiancarlos: 64bit OS allows you use more than 3.2Gb of ram01:30
Pyraineor does anybody know of a HD-Audio-Models list which includes the ALC1200 ?01:30
ScottyBoyBummer for me. LOL01:30
dr_williscarlos:  ram it can access. for the most part.. a bit of a speed gain in some cases with 64bit01:30
carlosonly a bit speed?01:31
ScottyBoyThanks, edbian. :)01:31
edbianScottyBoy: sure01:31
Pinbe rigth back01:32
edbiancarlos: precisely one bit01:32
Guest24725i thought that in order to run 32 bit software on a 64bit system, the os had to provide some sort of virtualization01:32
Pyrainecarlos: don't quote me I don't know much about hardware, but I'm fairly certain programs developed specifically for x64 systems can use twice as much processing01:32
edbianPyraine: what do you mean?01:32
dr_willisGuest24725:  theres compat. libs that can do it.01:33
Guest24725dr_willis: kk01:33
Pyraineedbian: do 64-bit applications not use both cores of your processor at the same time?01:33
dr_willisGuest24725:  but you mean a 32bit app on a 64bit OS...   the 64bit cpus out can handle 32bit os's01:33
Pyrainetwo cores* not both cores, you might have more than 201:33
edbianPyraine: You can have a dual core 32 bit processor01:33
edbianPyraine: # of bits and # of cores are not linked01:34
Pyraineedbian: yeah, but both cores won't get used by a single application though.. right?01:34
carloscan I have some problem to install a 64-bit? or may not notice anything?01:34
dr_willisPyraine:  depends on how the app is programed01:34
dr_williscarlos:  ive had very few if any issues with 64bit.01:34
edbianPyraine: That does not have to do with 64 or 32 bits either.  That's if the programmer wrote the program to be multi-core or not01:34
dr_williscarlos:  if you have less then 4gb of ram. you can safely use 32bit if you wanted to01:34
Guest24725dr_willis: i was asking about a 32bit app on a 64bit machine/os01:34
edbianPyraine: most btw do not write for 2 or 4 core processors01:34
edbianMost multi-core software is for graphics cards which have 100s of cores01:35
Pyraineedbian: I see, but you can't get a single core processor to run a 64-bit operating system though, can you?01:35
carlosi just have 4gb of ram installed01:35
edbianGuest24725: 64 bit processors can run 32 bit software most of the time flawlessly01:35
lapagaI am thinking that there are not of normally used apps that will  be helped by 64 bit but it will lengthen the eol of the computer01:35
edbianPyraine: There are single core 64 bit processors01:35
edbianPyraine: and they can run 64 bit OSs01:35
edbiancarlos: Then you probably want 64 bit01:35
Pyraineedbian: well, I guess you learn something new every day01:35
edbiancarlos: Or you won't be able to use all of that ram (just most of it)01:36
edbianPyraine: :)01:36
carlosok01:36
edbiancarlos: :)01:36
faint545How long do you guys think it'll take to defrag a 3TB external USB drive... only 1.9 TB is being used...01:36
carlosedbian, and and about flash player works fine with 64 bits?01:36
edbianlapaga: what?01:37
Pyrainecarlos: flash player works completely fine.01:37
Scotty_holy, the weirdest thing. and i have confirmed, My mouse get laggy when im uploading...01:37
carlosok ok many thanks to all01:37
edbiancarlos: I don't know first hand.  Recent news is that 'yes' flash works fine on 64 bits (just as fine as 32 bits anyway)01:37
KuwangerSo I've used sysprof to find out that there's a lot of CPU usage in the kernel when display graphics in some SDL games, and it seems a lot of it comes down to on_each_cpu which may or may not be tied heavily to either perf_do_callchain or change_page_attr_set_clr.  But, now that I know that, I'm not sure what to do with the information.  Any ideas on a good next step?01:37
PyraineI'm a web developer and have made, debugged and run web applications in actionscript 3 on 64-bit systems, so that I can say with confidence.01:38
edbianPyraine: :D01:38
carlosthank you very much again to all, I'll tell you after installing:)01:39
jamiewanHi, have natty+win7 duel boot setup, i unplugged the win7 hard drive last nite, and now cannot boot into linux, re-connected the win7 drive and still no success booting to either, get this error, NTDLR missing, ctr alt del to restart, but just goes in the same loop, any help01:39
edbiancarlos: :D01:39
lapagaedbian: just mean that most apps that the average person uses will not really be helped by using 64 bit over 32 bit...but...as the world turns and things progress 64 bit will probably be the 32 bit of today01:39
carloshugs01:39
edbianlapaga: I agree01:39
dr_willisfaint545:  what filesystem is on the drive? how are you defragging it?01:39
edbianjamiewan: Can you boot a liveCD ?01:39
PinGuys I have Ubuntu 11.04 on a laptop, I have an external flat screen connected to it, Why cant i go over 1024x768 resolution with the monitor?01:40
faint545dr_willis FS is NTFS. I plan on defragging it using Windows 7's default defragmenter..01:40
dabaRHello #ubuntu. How do I add a launcher to the new menu>01:40
jamiewanedbian: havent tried, unplugged it to take to mates place to troubleshoot, but thought might be worth running it thru here first01:40
Pyraineto be honest I went from a 1GB ram, 1.4GHz processor, 32-bit system, to a 4GB ram 2ghz quad-core 64-bit system, so the improvement was drastic but I don't know how much of it was the hardware improvement and how much of it is the OS improvement01:40
edbiandabaR: Put the launcher on the desktop.  Drag the launcher onto the unity bar on the left.01:40
faint545@dr_willis or use a 3rd party defragmenter.01:40
dr_willisfaint545:  i tend to use 'mydefrag' on windows. It has differnt levels of defragging. the fast mode. (just move stuff to one end) can proberly do it in a few hrs.. :) 'full complete' defrag - may take  a day. :)01:41
edbianjamiewan: I think when you plugged the HDD back in you didn't tell the bios to boot it.01:41
dabaRedbian: Thanks very much.01:41
edbianPyraine: Did you switch OS too?  (that's a huge hardware improvement)01:41
dr_willisfaint545:  and you can actually watch its progress..  unlike the windows tool01:41
edbiandabaR: sure01:41
faint545dr_willis, thx for the input01:41
PinGuys my monitor used to go on very high resolutions, Now ubuntu only lets me go to 1024x768! HELP!!! http://i.imgur.com/b7bWY.png01:42
Pyraineedbian: nah, both were dual-boot Win7 and Ubuntu, I just jumped to 64-bit versions of both01:42
jamiewanedbian: ok, so go into bios and check that first you think, maybe uncheck fast oot aswell?01:42
faint545@dr_willis haha, MyDefrag is basically JKDefrag is it not?01:42
edbianPyraine: mmm01:42
CarlFKjamiewan: call the drives A and B.  long shot: your box booted grub from A, when you pulled it your box reset the boot drive to B. putting A back in didn't  change it from B back to A becasue there was still a B.01:42
Pyrainefaint545: from my experience the best and quickest defrag tool for Windows is defraggler01:42
jamiewanCarlFK: ok so a quick fiddle in the bios might fix it then01:42
edbianjamiewan: Fast boot won't change which HDD is being booted.  Here's what i think.  You had 2 hdds.  You pulled one and hte bios was like 'fine then I'll use the other... jerk'  and then you put the first one back in and the bios was like 'k... who cares' and keeps trying to boot the other one.01:43
Pyrainefaint545: has a really light and nice GUI aswell if that matters to you01:43
edbianjamiewan: And 'the other one' doesn't have an MBR01:43
PinGuys my monitor used to go on very high resolutions, Now ubuntu only lets me go to 1024x768! HELP!!! http://i.imgur.com/b7bWY.png01:43
CarlFKjamiewan: that woud be my guess01:43
ttlycnfuzd|grgesimple question for anyone that knows the simple answer... why wont the installer (10.04) install the bootloader to /dev/cciss/c0d0?01:43
PyrainePin: is this since moving to ubuntu? is your graphics card nvidia?01:44
ttlycnfuzd|grgeor is there a way around it?01:44
AwesomeMustardSo I installed ccsm on Ubuntu 11.04 and i hit the 3d cube option and it asked to enable opengl and compositor (or something like that) and after words it got rid of the window boarders so now there is no exit button, minimize, etc.   I have tried to disable what i enabled, reinstalling ccsm, compiz, gnome, and ubuntu-desktop (was to be reinstalled with compiz) and my problem is still not fixed.  Anyone have any idea on how t01:44
AwesomeMustardo fix it?01:44
jamiewanedbian: ok, i'm just aboutto head out with it, if your still about hour or so and i have no luck i'll drop back in ere, cheers guys01:44
Pinno if was after having issues with compiz, the issues are resolved but now my monitor apears as "unknown" in the monitors section01:44
dr_willisfaint545:  its been renamed.01:44
Pinand only goes to 1024x76801:44
edbianPin: Have you tried messing with all the resolution options like 'same image' and turning the monitors off / on01:45
edbianjamiewan: good luck01:45
___Alex___is there any other commands to check for disk integrity other than fsck -f /dev/sxxx ?01:45
edbianAwesomeMustard: Are you using ubuntu classic?01:45
CarlFKttlycnfuzd|grge: my guess: that's not normal, and so try to keep people from making a mistake.  try the Alt installer CD.. it has more partition options01:45
Pinyep edbian tried that01:45
edbianPin: Then I'm not sure :P01:45
infobitPin, what resolutions you use to get before01:46
AwesomeMustardedbian, yes, i am01:46
ttlycnfuzd|grgeCarlFK: the installer recognises the device, however, when you go to select the device to install bootloader (advanced options), the OK is greyed out...01:46
edbianAwesomeMustard: Can you open ccsm and edit the things in it?01:46
faint545___Alex___, i suppose you could use SMART, but that isn't always reliable01:46
Pini used to be able to get up to 1280x1024 on my external monitor01:46

arthursciencethe netbook is sold with 4 primary partitions, and they are: boot, C:, recovery, and HP-TOOLS02:57
edbianarthurscience: I've not done it but I'm curious what your real question is02:57
cyphaedbian, that was my next question, thanks :)02:57
arthurscienceI would like to delete HP-TOOLS so I can make a native linux partition, but I don't want to do anything damaging02:57
cyphaok, so I have xchat-2.8.8 source downloaded02:58
edbiancypha: sure02:58
dr_willisarthurscience:  you will need to remove one to install linux,  or somehow covert one to a extended02:58
jonnyi need help: how do i get rid of GRUB bootloader? i just want everything back to my vista partition02:58
cyphawhere do I go to write ./configure02:58
cyphamake02:58
cyphamake install?02:58
scarmichaelin a normal ubuntu install  there exists an application under System>Administration>Language Support.  I am running a minimial install of ubuntu so this app didnt get installed.  Any ideas as to what package i need to apt-get into order to get this?02:58
edbianjonny: there is some command fixmbr  or something.  Ask in #windows02:58
jonnyedbian: ty02:58
arthurscienceI guess my real question is whether anyone is familiar with that HP-TOOLS partition and the purpose that it serves02:58
edbianarthurscience: deleting the HP-TOOLS partition will do something.  I can't promise that it won't break windows.  It probably won't but I can't guarantee02:59
arthurscienceor...if there are any clever ways around the 4 primary limit given my situation02:59
lapagacypha: in the dir that the file is02:59
dr_willisarthurscience:  its gotte to a point these days where i always get a 2nd hd for any new laptops to clone the origial hd to it for a backup... saves hassles later02:59
edbianarthurscience: extended partitions02:59
csdserverscarmichael, sounds like internationalization options02:59
dr_willishow big is hp-tools partition arthurscience03:00
arthurscienceedbian: in order to make an extended partition I have to (at least temporarily) delete one of the primaries though...right?03:00
scarmichaelcsdserver, if you could take a look at the launcher by right clicking it, and read me the program that is launched, that would give me an answer03:00

edbianarthurscience: I don't know03:01

csdserverscarmichael, the process starts with gnome-language- still trying to get more info from top03:03
dr_willisarthurscience:  most likely its some boot tool partitio that you boot from to restore the stuff from the backup partition03:03
sudocommcouldn't he just use GParted to resize the C:\, and create the new partition then just make that partition extended?  Or am I just completely wrong?03:03
scarmichaelgnome-language-selector must be it03:03
edbianscarmichael: the command is gnome-language-selector03:04

Northernentheadmin, hehe. 2.6.39 is the latest stable though. 3.0 still experimental. Considering it was released 22/7-2011, probably experimental a while longer.05:23
sweeti coudnt install skype in my copmputer ubuntu 10.04?05:24
rwwNorthernen: 2.0 came out in 1996. http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/timeline/cdf3cfeca3e82219ddcab20550e85406.png05:24
x64Why not?05:24
rwwNorthernen: also, 3.0 is the latest stable. It's not "experimental".05:25
rwwjust not on any released Ubuntu :P05:25
maalacNorthernen: will try dat..05:25
Northernenrww, says 'latest stable kernel' is 2.39.3 on kernel.org? Or am I looking wrong?05:25
dc5alasweet: and why not? Do you get any error?05:26
rwwNorthernen: 'mainline' is the most recent Linux release. 'stable' are kernels that have been out a while and are getting security and driver fixes backported to them.05:27
x64sweet, try sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install skype05:27
Northernenrww, 2.0 in 1996. Is it wrong to find the 3.0 release quite exciting then?05:27
Northernenrww, oooh. I see.05:27
rwwNorthernen: 2.x to 3.x is an arbitrary version increment, it doesn't signify more major changes than 2.6.38 to 2.6.3905:27
theadminNorthernen: Linus was just tired of being stuck in the 2.x.x branch05:28
NorthernenI though it was major.minor.patch?05:28

rwwNorthernen: come to think of it, I accidentally selected a TZ in Canada once and ended up with ca.archive.ubuntu.com, so I think that is it.05:46
kingmiloStrange thing in Natty. Adobe and Skype windows both seem to be missing visible scrollbars, so i can scroll up/down by clicking in the whitespace but there is no visible scrollbar. Additionally I cannot see radiobuttons or checkboxes but they are there. Everything else works fine ie nautilus has crollbars etc.05:46

lolcatSo there is no way to decrypt it without it?05:53
vltlolcat: No, just restore from your backup ;-)05:53
kingmiloWould anyone know why Adobe & Skype are missing visible scrollbars and checkboxes and radiobuttons, ability to highlight etc? But its still functional if you can guess where they are!05:54
NorthernenWouldn't be much point in encrypting anything really, if anyone could just decrypt it.05:54
charlietangololcat, I believe you should have received some type of long string encryption recovery key upon first boot after electing to encrypt your home directory05:54
gogeta1kingmilo: couse they are nice and hidden couse unity hates you05:54
csdserverok, i had been using samba but i'm not sure about my network configuration at all.  can someone take a look at some of my conf files to make sure i'm not making some common errors?  i'll pastebin what is needed05:54
dc5alakingmilo, you have esoteric radiobuttons, they are just in another meta space, alternatively try classic desktop05:55

dc5alakingmilo, and it happens on multiple client machines?05:57
kingmilodc5ala: Yup, every user at every station has the same problem, but only with skype and adobe. I know skype is based on Qt so wondering if that has soming to do with it. Nautilius and anything directly gnome related is fine.05:58
csdserverhttp://paste.ubuntu.com/652205/05:58
kingmilodc5ala: As mentioned above I removed the gastly new scrollbars in natty so that might have something to do with it, I now operate with the old style scrollbars.05:59

kingmilodc5ala: apologies for not being clear, i mean adobe reader. Ill paste a screenshot shortly06:01
NorthernenI do wonder why the Ubuntu team made Unity their default desktop environment, especially since there is so little modification available.06:01

thegoodcushionand for LTS, is it Ubuntu Netbook Remix 10.04 ?07:03
sandwichbars@thegoodcushion: ...pardon?07:05
thegoodcushionfor long term support on a netbook, is it that version that I want?  The "Netbook Remix" ?07:06
ejoI had to get rid of Unity, it just randomly blows up once in a while and has to repaint all windows, some of which lose their positions.  I hope they're working on that little problem.  Or maybe it's ATI's proprietary driver.  But realistically almost everyone is going to use that driver if they are running several monitors on a Radeon HD card.07:06
Northernenejo, I hate fglrx :(07:07
ejoYeah, i don't like fglrx much either :|07:07
Northernenejo, I've had to reinstall 5 ish times because of it.07:07
jailbreak3rFinished setting up 11.04 and setting up ndiswrapper (huge PIA) :P07:07

Northernenejo, indeed. This will be the last ATI card I am ever buying until they sort out their Linux support. Granted it came with my Acer laptop, but I'm not paying any companies any more with this sort of attitude.07:10

necaviHello, I recently decided to update my little ubuntu box from 10.04 to at least 10.10, but unfortunately about halfway through the machine crashed, and now whenever I attempt to boot into ubuntu it shows a startup screen I have never seen before (but still marked as 10.04) and freeze. I have also tried using an 11.04 live install, but whenever I attempt to boot from that it simply says aufs07:58
necavimount failed. Any chance someone could help me get started on fixing this? I have but a few files and mainly logs that actually need to be kept (one of the main reasons for trying the live install). Thank you.07:58
maumplease07:58
maumhelp me07:58
maumI cannot hear music on ubuntu 11.0407:59
[snake]maum, ok07:59
Untouchab1equestion. I have a windows NFS share, but when I create a directory on it from a linux system, the folder is inaccessible from the Windows system.. "Windows cannot access \\NFS-share\folder"..07:59
[snake]maum, I will run you through the diagnostics07:59
Untouchab1eI realize its an issue with permission, but not quite sure how to fix it=?07:59
sweetdc5ala: just normal microphone plugged into microphone  sound card07:59
ikonianecavi: use the 10.04 cd to recover the machine,  you know that works07:59
maum[snake], ok07:59
[snake]maum, first, check to see if your audio device is plugged in correctly.07:59
AutodidactiteI don't blame you Northernen, it is such a petty that these things happen because people close access to there source code out of fear.08:00
maum[snake], I cannot see any device on sound preference.08:00
[snake]maum, is the hardware plugged in?08:00
necaviWow, I feel stupid for not attempting that, I'll give it a try now!08:00
maum[snake], there is no..08:00
NorthernenUntouchab1e, fairly certain you need to use samba for that.08:00
maum[snake], Intel Corporation 5 Series/3400 Series Chipset High Definition Audio08:00
[snake]maum, ok thanks for that. but are your speaker/headphones plugged in?08:01
Untouchab1eNorthernen: unfortunately, I need to use NFS :/08:01
maum[snake], my earphone plugged in.08:01
Untouchab1eNorthernen: Im thinking there must be an easy chmod command from the linux box to fix it?08:01
NorthernenUntouchab1e, what08:02
[snake]maum, ok. and your intel chipser is not working. hmm. did you check the drivers in: system>administration>Hardware drivers. they may be there08:02
Northernen's the permissions on the mount?08:02
maum[snake], I'm using 11.04 so there is no adinistration menu but additional drivers.08:02
Untouchab1eNorthernen: the problem must be that the files/folders created on the Windows NFS share from the Linux box have the linux root user as owner08:03
Untouchab1emeaning no other user can access it08:03
frenkelwhat am I doing wrong when uploading to a ppa and launchpad sends me emails with "Could not find person or team named ''"08:03
[snake]ok. good you are in the additional drivers. are there any available?08:03
NorthernenUntouchab1e, you want to change the owner of the files/directories?08:03
Untouchab1eNorthernen: idk if that will fix it..08:03

Untouchab1ehence why Im asking08:03
KGB_plaguehi all , is this the right place to ask about how to make ubuntu a gaming environment?' , forexample when using Wine , i would like to make my Ubuntu in a freeze status to dedicate all its powers and focus on the emulation , and when im out of the game , ubuntu processes the logging box forexample if i had chat messages it will be all in small bits of terminal language that has no gui at all and then presents to me normally in a gui format after the fre08:04
KGB_plagueeze status is unfrozen08:04
KGB_plaguedoes Linux have such a thing that exists... Thanks in advanced08:04
NorthernenUntouchab1e, me neither, but worth a try. "chown newonwer file/directory" by the way.08:04

NorthernenKGB_plague, only thing I can think of is editing the nice level.08:06
[snake]dc5ala, oh... ok. maybe you should take over ;)08:07
NorthernenKGB_plague, set nice level to -19, and it should hog most resources.08:07
[snake]How can I be sure my webserver is secure?08:07
KGB_plaguemaum, i have sound problems its a bug also in unity if u have that not sure what ur question was but listen , just enable the inbuilt sound card then enable the PCI sound card again , do it for allt he tabs in the sound control08:07
NorthernenUntouchab1e, you need to access it from Windows as well?08:08
maumKGB_plague, how can I?  I don't know08:09
Untouchab1eNorthernen: thats the problem here.. I have a Windows NFS Share which works fine, but I cannot access folders created from Linux systems on the Windows box08:09
Untouchab1ePermission denied08:09
[snake]I love my webserver, and I don't want it to catch a cold out on the internet or anything. what could I do? is there any webserver security software that is free available?08:09
KGB_plagueNorthernen, hog resources meaning? focuses on the task that requires focus? is their an app done that can freeze everything like empathy / evolution + Ubuntu GUI + Gnome ... so it focuses on the task at full potential then when im back fromm my game , or wine , then it wakes up everything and parcels all my skype messages or empathy from the chat server to see what ive missed08:09
KGB_plaguemaum, ask question again plz08:10
maumKGB_plague, how can I enable the inbuilt sound card?08:10
KGB_plagueur using unity ? 11.04?08:10
maumKGB_plague, how can I enable the inbuilt sound card and enable the PCI08:10
KGB_plaguethats simple , firstly i dont want to be rude have u got windows installed aswell?08:10
dc5alasnake, it's usually not the webserver itself that cause security problems, more the software you running on it08:10
NorthernenKGB_plague, no such thing, but if you want a process to take priority over other processes, adjust its nice level.08:10
maumKGB_plague, yes I have08:11
KGB_plaguemaum, does it work on windows , have u ever re-assembled ur machine lately?08:11
NorthernenUntouchab1e, I see. I don't think Windows recognises Linux permissions.08:11
maumKGB_plague, no I haven't08:11
KGB_plaguemaum, ok thats starters question that peopel sometimes neglect .. , go to ubuntu start , type sound08:11
[snake]dc5ala, I'm running LAMP for my server. and that's really it.08:11
KGB_plagueor from the panel maum  right click preferences at sound08:11
Untouchab1eNorthernen: exactly.. so there must be a way to work around this somehow08:11
maumKGB_plague, I opened the sound preference. but there is no hardware device.08:12
[snake]dc5ala, that is Linux, apache2, mysql, and php.08:12
KGB_plagueNorthernen, thats a great impact for the linux gamers in Linux World , if such thing exists ... it will be giving an increase of 15 - 25fps in games such as Call oF Duty Black ops or Fallout 208:12
Untouchab1eNorthernen: I wonder if my mount command for the NFS share is the issue?08:12
KGB_plaguemaum, have u had older ubuntu versions before this or is this ur first install of linux?08:12
maumKGB_plague, I upgraded from 10.04 to 11.0408:13
KGB_plaguemaum, did u have this problem at 10.0408:13
maumKGB_plague, I had no problem08:13
[snake]dc5ala, other than that I don't even run things on my server. plus I did a nessus scan and no exploits exist.08:13
NorthernenUntouchab1e, might be. Should probably mount it as a user account, although not sure if that will hell.08:13
KGB_plaguecan u try booting 11.04 from usb and see if it can detect it ;)08:14
NorthernenUntouchab1e, not _as_ as a user account, but connect it to one.08:14

Atlantic777Hi! I added the gnome 3 ppa yesterday, installed gnome-shell and upgraded whole system.

bazhang!gnome3 | Atlantic77708:54
ubottuAtlantic777: 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.08:54

theadminthegoodcushion: You should try Unetbootin and (if on Windows) LiLi USB Creator08:56
Atlantic777Ubuntu really should have some sort of fallback packages like on gentoo. Just remove world file and install again, versions which I want. :D08:56

BlueteguI'm getting hard time installing ubuntu 11.04 64bit on my T42009:00
BlueteguFirst the disk partitioning failed09:01
nit-witBluetegu, how did you partition?09:02
Bluetegunit-wit, used the default partitioning suggested in the installation disk09:02
nit-witBluetegu, which is? there are several options at the choice window09:03
urbanlimeBluetegu did you leave ~1mb of space between the partitions, sometimes partition errors may occur if the partitions overlap09:03
BlueteguI chose install besides windows 7 and it offered a partitioning between the two.09:04
BlueteguI didn't select any overriding value.09:04
urbanlimeBluetegu, try editing the partitions and giving them a bit of wiggle room with a live disk, it may be from overlapping09:06
BlueteguFor some strange reason when I'm rebooting from the installation CD now, it takes ages for Ubuntu to come up, and if I press escape to see the printing I see a loop of authentication failure printing.09:06
Blueteguurbanlime, do you mean use gparted for this?09:06
urbanlimebluetegu yes09:06
nit-witBluetegu, generally with a dual boot you want to build the partitions in gparted, or the custom install the last line at the bottom, you could wipe Windows if your not careful09:06
nit-witBluetegu, you also must know the limitations of primary partitions as well 4 per hd, or 3 and a extended for the linux/09:07
BlueteguOk, thank. I'll try Gparted. Basically I only need to shrink the windows 7 partition and then let the ubuntu installation do the rest, right?09:07
necaviSo I now have the ability to liveboot into 10.04, but I'm unsure of what exactly would be best to do at this point, should I attempt to get my logs and programming files off of the install, then do a fresh 11.04? Or is there some suggested way to recover from a partial upgrade? (A lot of things thing I'm still running 10.04, but 10.04 setup seems to think that I'm running 10.10)09:08
nit-witBluetegu, I would only shrink W7 with its disk manager but gparted will work be careful09:08
theadminBluetegu: My suggestion is to select to partition disks manually in Ubuntu install and mount the partition you want Ubuntu on as /09:09
necavi(addendum, this is in relation to a question I posed ~hour ago, I can past it to others via PM if needed)09:10
Bluetegunit-wit, Thanks, I'll take a look at disk manager. The idea here is also to shrink the partition and let then ubuntu install do the rest.09:10
Atlantic777Ummm can I completely remove kubuntu after installing kubuntu-desktop/netbook?09:10
=== nicofs_ is now known as nicofs
theadminAtlantic777: Yes09:10
nit-witBluetegu, I have seen a ot of people when I helped at the UF, who let ubuntu do the work and ended up with a wiped W7.09:11
nit-wit*lot09:11
Atlantic777theadmin: thanks, hope that it is the same for lubuntu-desktop09:12
theadminAtlantic777: It's same for any task09:12
urbanlimeAtlantic777 it is the same for any operating system09:13
Bluetegunit-wit, I don't want to be one of those... Where is the disk manager? Its not in System Tools folder?09:13
urbanlimeAtlantic777 you need to make sure that the bootloader is configured for the new os however09:13
Infernethey all09:13

nit-witBluetegu, in the admin of W7 type disk mana   and you will create new partitions or something like that I'm on W7 now but in a limited account I can't acces it.09:14

andylockranI have installed a Hardy 8.04 box as a server - how do I know that I'm getting updates for the software installed on that box10:15
andylockrani.e. if i've installed openoffice on it, or ubuntu-desktop ontop of the server iso?10:15
ThinkT510!lts10:15
ubottuLTS means Long Term Support. LTS versions of Ubuntu will be supported for 3 years on the desktop, and 5 years on the server. The current LTS version of Ubuntu is !Lucid (Lucid Lynx 10.04)10:15
veleoehi i was installed  rtl8188su and 8192su under ubuntu 10.04 lts but  it isn't worked  any ideas10:15

nit-witgigenieks_, you want a good link?10:16
gigenieks_so, I will need reinstall grub210:16
andylockranas I'm running a hardy server, but unsure as to whether all the packages I have installed on it would be candidates for the 5 year support or the 3.10:16

dc5aladogears, not here, you run into any problems?10:19
gigenieks_but what to set in X place?10:19
andylockrangigenieks_: run fdisk -l10:19
nit-witgigenieks_, this is where you want to be on the page. https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Grub2#Copy%20LiveCD%20Files10:19
andylockranand indentify your disks, and set /dev/sdX to the disk where you'd like grub installed.10:20
andylockranwhere X = a,b, or c - depending on which disk you're installing to10:20
nit-witgigenieks_, the commands are slightly different.10:20
dc5alagigenieks_, usually the one that your system is looking for a bootmanager (first in boot order list)10:20
veleoeubuntu has several problem with usb wireless ,this problem needs be resolve10:20
gigenieks_hmm...10:21
gigenieks_for example if I set in BIOS10:21
gigenieks_sdb10:21
gigenieks_which is 250gb data hdd10:21
gigenieks_then if i installed on sda10:21
gigenieks_it wont boot?10:21
Ynoddegigenieks_:easiest is let the 1st hdd boot (/dev/sda) and install grub on that10:22
nit-witgigenieks_, generally the mbr of th HD installed in is suggested.10:22
ThinkT510gigenieks_: wherever the bios looks first, thats where you want the bootloader to be10:22
veleoehere nobody help me10:23
gigenieks_Okey lets reprase:10:23
veleoeokey10:23
nit-witveleoe, your question is rather vague10:24
veleoewhat?10:24
veleoebye10:24
gigenieks_grrr.... how can I explain this in english :D10:25
gigenieks_meaning right now in bios 1st HDD is sdc; but as far as I know my mbr is on sda10:25
gigenieks_but everything boots10:25
ThinkT510gigenieks_: each disk has its own mbr10:26
fmaurothe bios will likely iterate through the disks until a valid mbr is found10:26
gigenieks_in other words10:26
gigenieks_i can choose10:26
nit-witgigenieks_, run this script if you like and pastebin it. http://bootinfoscript.sourceforge.net/10:26
dogearsdc5ala: tried to install and gave connection error? only on Gimp10:27
ThinkT510gigenieks_: whichever disk you choose to boot first, that is the mbr that will be obeyed10:27
dogearsdc5ala: Thought10:27
dogearsdc5ala: probably the connection will try again10:28
dc5aladogears, just download problem then?10:28

bugbrainsfmauro: i execute a process and it prints some text on sucees of failure to stdout10:30
dogearsdc5ala: Yes it was giving weird errors. Thought it may have been something with Unity10:30
bugbrainsi need it in a c++ code10:30

nit-witgigenieks_, what hd is kubuntu in10:31
fmaurobugbrains, you could implement it as a return code. or is the returned text of importance?10:32
gigenieks_sdc10:32
gigenieks_sdc510:32
bugbrainsfmauro:  returned text10:32

gigenieks_again question i can set WHATEVER HDD i want for example sdb which is 250gb ide data hard drive10:33
gigenieks_and if I remove it10:33
gigenieks_I CANT boot10:33
nit-witgigenieks_, sdc5 is kubuntu10:33
gigenieks_yeah it is10:33
dc5aladogears, you welcome10:33
gigenieks_that is not the issue or thing that i dont understand10:34
nit-witgigenieks_, can you boot to it now?10:34
gigenieks_Im in kubuntu10:34
gigenieks_i will reinstall Windows10:34
gigenieks_thats why i need to know10:34
dc5alagigenieks_, newer BIOS sometimes also have their own kind of bootmanager (like pressing F8), with that you could theoretically also install grub in your linux drive. but if you want to use grub as main bootmanager you need it in the first one10:34
gigenieks_about grub10:34

gigenieks_ok concrete situation in BIOS10:35
gigenieks_i have sdc hdd10:35
fmaurobugbrains, you could use popen from stdio.h10:35
nit-witgigenieks_, in the terminal run   sudo grub-install /dev/sdc    and have that HD first in the bios or use the key propmt to have the choice of boot. Also run  sudo update-grub after the first command10:35
TBotNikAll: Dang it's late, later off to Z land 4 me!!  Cheers!! :)  :)10:36
nit-witgigenieks_, does that make sense to yah.;)10:36
gigenieks_I will 100% ask this in forums :D10:36
gigenieks_but i kinda 50% understand of it.10:36
bugbrainsfmauro: i will try and come back10:36
gigenieks_if i set mbr on sdc10:37
gigenieks_wouldn't it fuck windows bootloader?10:37
gigenieks_cuz windows will be on sdc too10:37
gigenieks_as is Kubuntu10:37
nit-witgigenieks_, the first command just reloads grub to the mbr , leaving kubuntu as the grub control10:37
LjLgigenieks_: control the language please10:37
nit-witgigenieks_, yes but grub will see windows and it will be in the grub menu to boot from10:38
gigenieks_If i know it better i could control :D10:38
nit-witgigenieks_, if you ran the script I posted we could get a little more info as to other options10:38
spankbotWhy sould X Server crash on my laptop if there is not pwr supply plugged in?10:38

nit-witgigenieks_, I have W7 on my hard drive and grub is in the mbr10:39
nit-witwith natty10:39
nit-witon the hd10:39
nit-witgigenieks_, if you want to keep the MS bootloader you could use easybcd, but it looks like sda and sdb are data and sdc is a windows OS and kubuntu10:42
gigenieks_nit-wit: http://paste.ubuntu.com/652337/10:42
gigenieks_YES sda and sdb is data10:42
gigenieks_so it is recommended to set grub to sdc?10:42
nit-witgigenieks_, so do you have a recovery or install disc for windows?10:43
spankbotIs there a laptop power settings for NVidia?  Is this what is causing my machine to blow?10:43

abhinav_singhlotuspsychje:  yes my cpu support 64 bit..but right now i am using 32 bit ...so if i have clean install of ubuntu 64 bit all my data will be gone..10:47
nit-witgigenieks_, W7 is in the grub menu now if you rebooted you could boot to windows... if the sdc HD is read first in te bios10:47
gigenieks_grub has windows entry10:47
lotuspsychjeabhinav_singh: there are several apps for data backup, after that do a 64 bit clean install10:47
gigenieks_it could even boot in safe mode10:48

lotuspsychjeabhinav_singh: didnt try some myself, software centre would be a good start, or asking in chat whats best data backup app10:49
gigenieks_so your suggestion is to set sdc as MBR10:49
nit-witgigenieks_, yes the safe=f8 is available choose windows at grub and hit the f8, and run a chkdsk10:49

nit-witgigenieks_, so I get the impresson your afraid of losing the MS bootloader, it can be reloaded with the install disc if needed, putting grub in any other then the sdc I woudn't advise11:03
fmaurobugbrains, note that this will only print stdout and not stderr. you have to append 2>&1 for that11:03

gigenieks_now i have just install11:09
alex--iceroot: can i downlolad it from somewhere?11:09
fmaurobugbrains, instead of for example "ls -r" use "ls -r 2>&1" as argument for popen()11:09

nit-witgigenieks_, that disc has sata drivers11:09
nit-witshould anyway11:10

jribVictorCL: there's a big interface change.  Maybe try a live cd and see if you like it first.  There's no need to upgrade and if you like 10.04, you can just wait until 12.04 and upgrade then (to the next scheduled LTS)11:24

KNUBBIGrigved: if you've got nothing to wreak havoc on just try /md /md0 /md1 I'm not entirely sure12:00

klevisonmy dvd is already mounted12:20
jane-how can i know which pubplic dns i use for resolving domain names to ips?12:20
fmauroblackalegator, remove or comment out your entry in fstab because now they will overlap.12:20

klevisonlotuspsychje, how can I do it?12:21
blackalegatorfmauro, okay, where do I put it?12:22
wolsjane-: it has nothing to do with a "dsl company" but the router. some of them show what public dns they use, some don't12:22
jane-wols ok.12:22
jane-llutz iam on windows atm.12:22
fmauro/etc/NetworkManager/dispatcher.d/12-cifsmount  (root rights req)12:22
fmauroblackalegator, /etc/NetworkManager/dispatcher.d/12-cifsmount  (root rights req)12:22

dr_willislinuxR:  'graphical console modes' ? you mean you want a normal console and not a 'framebuffer' enabled console?12:24
tim167dr_willis: well, the thing is I don't know if i really want to switch to the new desktop manager, Unity...12:24
fmauroblackalegator, try disconnecting and the share should vanish. or even better, try rebooting to see if it works properly12:24
lotuspsychjeklevison: check something like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S8j1Fo2KRZM12:24
linuxRdr_willis, exactly...as simple as possible, no special graphics mode at all12:24

dasdsdsaWell Unity 3 D uses Compiy13:11
dasdsdsaand Compiz has got a Desktop Wall13:11
dasdsdsaAnd if i move a window to the edge and then try to maximise13:11
dasdsdsaIt maximise where the window is most port on it13:12
destinydrivenhey guys, I have a hp dvt7 quad with 8GB RAM, how big should my swap partition be?13:12
faint545destinydriven, 8GB of ram? do you even need swap?13:12
fmauroAn_Ony_Moose, it appears I have made a mistake, gonna retry from the initial snapshot13:12

Picidestinydriven: If you plan to hibernate, you'll need to have at least as much swap as RAM.13:14
dr_willisdasdsdsa:  thats how it has worked for years..  what are you expecting it to do exactly? its a feature of twinview i thought. Not compiz.13:14
dr_willisdasdsdsa:  thats exactly how  i want it to work normally.13:15
dasdsdsadr_willis, yes but earlier it was not bad because there were only horizontal13:15
dasdsdsadr_willis, now in unity there are vertical too13:15

BluesKajHey all13:17
dr_willislolmaus:  tune2fs can change the uuid without reformating13:17
dasdsdsadr_willis earlier in ubuntu 10.10 it was so too but only if i moved the window right or left13:17
dasdsdsadr_willis now it is top and bottom too13:17

Piciaetas: I'm sorry but I don't have any experience with disk encryption, you're better off asking the channel.13:18

dasdsdsaPici: I have got often windows which are a bit more on workspace 2, because i have got open lots of windows, but it should stay on workspace 113:20
ravi77oGood morning.  I am trying to connect a file share on Active Directory, but when I mount, I get "Resource temporarily unavailable"13:22
dr_willisonly annouyance i can think of is if the window is down to the bottom and  the whole title is on workspace 1, and i maxamize, it goes to 3 (down 1)  i would think it should go by where the title bar is shown as a priority13:23
compdocwhat does file shareing have to do with Active Directory13:23
dr_willisI got my controlls to the right side.. so i basically cant maxamize somtning to workspace2. if its part way on ws#2 . without first going to ws #2 :013:23
dr_willisI find i just dont use workspaces in unity very much . I just maxamize all my apps and alt-tab about13:24
shadow98i found this command metacity --replace fixes problem when i type in termanl13:24
ravi77oi have to authenticate through active directory to access the drive (at least that's my understanding of AD)13:24
shadow98how do i perminately set this ....cause when i exit terminal it goes back on...13:24
dr_willisshadow98:  use the exit command, dont just hit the terminal close button..  perhaps.13:25
dr_willisshadow98:  theres also 'fusion-icon' or some other indicator-applet tools that can let you select metacity, or compiz via a menu.13:25
dr_willishttp://askubuntu.com/questions/30334/list-of-application-indicators  DisPlex indicator-applet has some  features of the old fusion-icon tool to help in getting compiz under controll.13:28

VictorCLok13:43
j3rothneedzhelppz, have you done a reboot of your entire computer?13:43
fmauroVictorCL, wait until it closes and and look at the log file it created in your home dir13:43
VictorCLThe program 'netbeans' is currently not installed.  You can install it by typing:13:43
tsimpsondavid_bru: those are probably real numbers, rather than characters representing numbers. ie: it's raw binary data coming through13:44
needzhelppzi'm running ubuntu on virtualbox and i managed to change my mac and connect to the internet last time without restarting but i forgot how13:44
VictorCLhow do you launch it?13:44
fmauroVictorCL, you will have to get the name of the executable. copy the menu entry to your desktop and look at the properties of the link13:44
VictorCLok13:44
llutzneedzhelppz: sudo ifconfig eth1 up && sudo dhclient eth113:44

fmauroVictorCL , the java vm states an out of memory exception. have you upgraded from a previous release or done a fresh install13:49

llutzneedzhelppz: and "sudo udevadm trigger "13:50
needzhelppzok done13:50
fmauroVictorCL, ok I would suggest you backup your work and try reinstalling netbeans by doing "sudo apt-get purge netbeans && sudo apt-get autoremove && sudo apt-get install netbeans" be careful, this will most likely remove your netbeans settings. do a backup13:51

llutzemmkai: use the IP or hostname of the machine running ssh-server you want to connect to13:53
emmkaiyes, ok im on whatismyip.com ?13:53
fmauroemmkai are you talking about connecting from outside of your LAN=13:53
emmkaican i use that ip ?13:54
faint545emmkai: no. local IP. type "ifconfig"13:54
emmkaifmauro: yes13:54
llutzemmkai: if you are behind a router, you have to setup portforwarding (WAN 22 -> LAN your-host)13:54
fmauroemmkai, if you want that you will have to do 2 things: know your WAN ip (whatismyip.com) 2. what llutz said13:54
needzhelppzis there anyway to change my mac address and be able to use the internet without rebooting?13:55
emmkaiok, what if im on LAN ?13:55
usr13emmkai: That is an outside IP address.  We normally do not allow  ssh connections from an untrusted network, (the internet).13:55
usr13emmkai: Yes, that is better, (to connect PC to PC within your LAN).13:55
fmauroneedzhelppz, macchanger can assign mac addresses13:55

llutzemmkai: then go and check, you need one for a vpn-connection.13:57
usr13emmkai: If your router is not VPN enabled, you will need to get one that is.13:57
fmauroneedzhelppz, have you tried addressing the device with ifconfig directly "ifconfig eth0 up && dhclient eth0"13:58
needzhelppzfmauro i did that then what am i supposed to do13:58

VictorCLI have 70% free memory14:08
needzhelppzhow do i do that fmauro?14:09

VictorCLnop14:10
VictorCLit goes up 5% more14:10
needzhelppzfmauro it says unreachable wen i ping 8.8.8.814:11
fmauroVictorCL, you now have several options 1. reinstalling ubuntu from scratch (will most likely solve your problem but it's a bit harsh), 2. you can try compiling netbeans from source (complicated) 3. The problem most likely lies in your java vm , try another one, like the sun jvm14:12

ikoniacjhard: my logs show you as never being in #gentoo15:26
Dr_Williscalling #gentoo #gen2  is confuseing... i sugest you stop it.15:26
