shadows090I was wondering if anyone could help with a strange networking problem. I can't ssh into my machine if I go through my external IP. I have a static IP on my server, ssh running on port 443, port 443 running to the static address, and I can ssh into my machine using my LAN IP. I have verified that port 443 is open with nmap (my external ip). I can also ping my server, and I can access the internet from my server. Any advice?00:10
Hyperbyteghostnik11:  see manpages for 'smartctl' and 'hdparm', harddisk diagnostics/benchmark00:11
th0rshadows090: is there a router or firewall between the server and the net?00:11
ghostnik11hyperbyte: manpages? is that on ubuntu forums00:12
rwwghostnik11: "man smartctl" (for example) on the commandline, or http://manpages.ubuntu.com00:12
Hyperbyteghostnik11:  type 'man <topic>' to view a manpage in a terminal, for example 'man smartctl', or use http://manpages.ubuntu.com/smartctl... 'man' is short for 'manual'00:12
shadows090th0r, yes. I've the ssh port (443) and verified that it is open with nmap. I'm having the same problem with port 80. My server runs a web site and ssh00:12
th0rshadows090: if there is a router or firewall, you will need to set up port forwarding from the external 443 to the internal 443. Another note, something in the back of my mind says 443 might be a bad choice00:13
belbo_227list /channels00:14
* stilia-johny hi everybody00:14
rwwth0r, shadows090: 443 is the port for HTTPS. If you have a router with a web interface, it wouldn't surprise me if it's getting confused and causing problems because of that.00:14
shadows090th0r, i've been using ssh on 443 on this same router for a few years. I have it forwarded from external 443 to internal 443, and haven't had a problem until the past few weeks. I use port 443 to get around firewalls, incase I Need to ssh from behind a different LAN00:14
th0rshadows090: right...443 is used for https00:15
Hyperbyteth0r, it's an excellent choice if you want to bypass proxy servers at work or school, but other than that it's a bad choice yes. ;-)00:15
rwwah, if it worked in the past, then nvm. *Shrugs800:15
th0rshadows090: no problem, just mentioned it as it was nagging at me <smile>00:15
th0rshadows090: as I said...you might need to forward the port in the router00:15
almoxarifeshadows090: you did something to create a firewall within the OS?00:16
shadows090th0r, rww I appreciate the concern. I have it port forwarded (port 80, and 443) to the static IP of the server. I've had this set up (same ip, same port for ssh) for at least a couple of years. I've tried rebooting the server, rebooting the router, reconfiguring the router from scratch, and still no dice00:16
shadows090almoxarife, yes it has a firewall, but it is just the default iptables rules (my server is debian)00:17

bomba4kaghbtn ctv00:18
bomba4kaПриет сем00:18
shadows090almoxarife, fairly recent. a month ago maybe? I've also had some weird routing problems. I've had to flush ip route table main. I think it's something to do with hooking up a wireless AP through eth0. running iwconfig eth0 strangely says that eth0 is wireless...00:18
shadows090almoxarife, i have restarted networking and ensured that routing has fixed itself, but maybe that's related00:19
almoxarifeshadows090: look at the most recent changes, and then work back from there00:19
TeamColtraDoes anyone have an idea on how to put a dvdiso onto a usb stick (bootable)?00:20
shadows090almoxarife, changes from the ip route?00:20
TeamColtraI tried using usb-creator-gtk and it wouldn't accept the ISO, I also tried "portablelinux" and that said that the iso was "too large"00:20
shadows090almoxarife, and also, just to cover. I've also reset the known hosts, authorized keys, etc in ~/.ssh00:21
almoxarifeshadows090: I would examine the iptables, insure they are what you want them to be00:21
shadows090almoxarife, thanks a lot. i've never messed with iptables much. do i just iptables -l? (that's a lower case L)00:21
almoxarifeshadows090: -L00:21
shadows090almoxarife, thanks a ton00:22
tripelbthis theme has 3 black dots for box--X -- I want the normal or at least different colored dots. Help please. and they are --boxX in that order00:22
tripelbI want a timer that takes a time-interval not a clock-time. I also want it to "ring off".  Please help.00:22
tripelbI installed alarm-clock. why does it say "previously deselected package"? When did I deselect it?00:23
shadows090almoxarife, i added it to http://pastebin.com/UA3B2bkZ it looks like it accepts everything...00:23
shadows090almoxarife, also, that was from the server, not the one I'm trying to ssh from00:24
almoxarifeshadows090: "from" should not be the issue, unless there is a 'no out to 443' rule00:25
almoxarifeshadows090: from the paste, I usually see three chains in a clean iptable, I thought?00:27
shadows090almoxarife, yeah. it seems to be a little empty, but that's all of it.  i checked netstat -n to make sure routing is correct. besides running some unknown process at port 34858, i haven't any clue what could be wrong00:28
Frettahow would I uninstall a package I installed from source00:28
FrettaImageMagick?00:28
itaylor57Fretta, do a sudo make uninstall from the source00:29
shadows090almoxarife, my bad, i did miss the top line. it says chain input policy accept00:29
Frettaitaylor57 thanks will give that a shot00:29
almoxarifeshadows090: cool'00:29
shadows090almoxarife, i think i'll try resetting the router again. i really haven't any other clue what it could be00:31
almoxarifeshadows090: one thing that is not stopping you to get to the OS, the iptables, hardware?00:31
almoxarifeshadows090: there is a channel called networking, I don't know how friendly or alive they are00:32
shadows090almoxarife, lol ok. thanks a lot man. i appreciate your help. i may try setting up an ssh server on here (default port) and seeing if i can ssh from my server to this machine using the outside IP. we'll see. i'm not even using my domain name (so DNS settings shouldn't be a problem). I'm going to reset my router, reconfigure for port forwarding, and I'll probably be back once I'm connected again. thanks!00:34

induzis there any commands to format my D: drive to make it bootable so that i can install mint00:41
ActionParsnipinduz: MD5 test the ISO, be sure the USB device is healthy00:41
induzusb is healthy00:42
ActionParsnipinduz: D: means nothing in Ubuntu00:42
induzhow can i do MD5 test00:42
ActionParsnip!md5 | induz00:42
ubottuinduz: To verify your Ubuntu ISO image (or other files for which an MD5 checksum is provided), see http://help.ubuntu.com/community/HowToMD5SUM or http://www.linuxquestions.org/linux/answers/LQ_ISO/Checking_the_md5sum_in_Windows00:42
ActionParsnipinduz: are you using windows currently?00:42
induzno00:43
induzI used and tried on windows [MS] but00:43
induz its too confusing for me00:43
induzplease help00:43
induzdont send me links...I read from morning but failed00:43
induzI have this USB00:44
ActionParsnipinduz: unetbootin is in the ubuntu repos, you can use it to wipe the USB partition, then transfer the verified ISO00:44
induzits formatted in MS windows as FAT3200:44
induzI have UNEBootin00:44
ActionParsnipinduz: the formatting is moot, unetbootin should be used to wipe it00:44
induzI tried to download the live version of Mint but it fails too va UNEBootin00:45
chrometigercan you install gnomeshell ontop of 10.10 without breaking everything and easily go back ?00:45

ActionParsnipinduz: then how did you know it was complete and consistent?00:46
induzI didt know00:47

ActionParsnipYcarene: not an offiail one00:50
SoothsayerActionParsnip, yup.00:50
YcareneAhh00:50
induzActionParsnip, after running MD% command i get this 5341d0e3e692246c22ad7dd31c94c828  austrumi-1.8.5.iso00:51
induz  that means my iso is correct??00:51
ActionParsnipinduz: grab the md5sum file for the ISOs and check00:52
ActionParsnip!info enlightenment00:52
ubottuPackage enlightenment does not exist in natty00:52
SoothsayerI'm going to try out gnome 3 after all today. The mixed reviews have confused me.00:53
Logan_!gnome3 | Soothsayer00:53
ubottuSoothsayer: 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.00:53
ActionParsnipYcarene: moonos seems to00:53
induzi  run MD5  susturmi.iso and get a line00:53
SoothsayerLogan what! but I can install KDE :-| damn. I was just going to use this - http://techhamlet.com/2011/05/how-to-install-gnome-3-on-ubuntu-11-04/00:53
induzActionParsnip, How can i grab the file00:54
Logan_Soothsayer: Kubuntu is an official supported Ubuntu distribution; there aren't currently any stable distributions running Gnome 3.00:54
induzI ran the command on terminal with MD5 and my directory[desktop]00:54
ActionParsnipinduz: from the site you downloaded it from. If you are still unsure ask in their support channel00:54
ActionParsnipYcarene: http://jeffhoogland.blogspot.com/2010/12/ten-linux-distros-that-use.html00:54
SoothsayerLogan_, ha damn. I don't use Unity though, only the Gnome Classic.00:54
Logan_Soothsayer: Same here.00:54
SoothsayerLogan_, so I can go ahead and try out Gnome 3 in this case?00:55
Logan_Soothsayer: Yes, but, as the automated message said, it is very experimental and unstable and could break your interface.  It is difficult to go back afterwards.00:55
SoothsayerLogan_, there's a chance it can break my existing interface (gnome classic?)?00:56
lucusoidhi everyone... Tried today to play on ScummVM but was impossible. Mouse resets position to the center of the screen. Running Natty 64 bit00:56
SoothsayerI guess I'll just wait for a month or two00:56
itaylor57Soothsayer, more than a chance, it most likely will require a reinstall to fix00:56
Logan_Soothsayer: I cannot guarantee that it will not do so.  Stick to the official ones, KDE, XFCE, and Gnome 2.00:56
Soothsayeritaylor57, damn.00:57
SoothsayerI don't like the official ones too much. I like some of the features in gnome300:58
Logan_Soothsayer: Then you could try another distro, like Fedora or openSUSE.00:59
SoothsayerLogan_, that's painful. It took me a while to understand the ubuntu/debian layout, features and server management.01:00
induz_ActionParsnip, I am back sorry01:00
induz_It failed again01:00
Logan_Soothsayer: If you wait until Oneiric is stable, you'll be able to install the Gnome 3 shell from the repository.01:00
SoothsayerLogan_, what are the big features in Oneiric?01:01
ActionParsnipinduz_: was the hash ok?01:02
Logan_Soothsayer: Honestly, I haven't been testing it.  You could ask someone in #ubuntu+101:02
induz_there is no hash on ,iso file01:03
ActionParsnipinduz_: if you websearch for the hash you generated, it should find pages01:03
induz_ Can I run UNetbootin and salect a Linux Mint LIVE can this be enough01:04
ActionParsnipinduz_: possibly01:04
bitcycleHey all.   I'm trying to list the available essid's with iwlist on the commandline... but its only listing the one that I"m connected to... Do I need to disconnect before it gives me a full list?01:04
induz_or I have to slect a version and then .iso too01:05
shadows090almoxarife, I wanted to let you know. I'm not sure what was causing it, but resetting the router worked. now I can access it again via external ip. i have no idea why, since I had it configured; but it works now01:05
itaylor57induz_, the has you listed earlier matches the iso hash sum01:05
jbhewitthey guys im trying to install the Virtual kernel in ubuntu 10.04.  I'm using apt-get install linux-image-virtual - however i do not see a virtual kernel put into /boot01:05
induz_ how can match the Hash01:05
induz_i downloaded the .iso01:05
almoxarifeshadows090: cool01:06
itaylor57induz_, http://download.polytechnic.edu.na/pub4/download.sourceforge.net/pub/sourceforge/a/project/au/austrumi/austrumi/austrumi-1.8.5/austrumi-1.8.5.md501:06
Logan_induz_: The MD5 hash checks the intended structure of the file against what you downloaded.  It is only significant if the original website had an MD5 hash to compare your downloaded file's hash to.01:06
ActionParsnipinduz_: if you search for the hash in a search engine, you should find results if it matches01:07
shadows090induz_, you can type "md5sum " followed by the full directory to the iso, and including the iso. ex: md5sum /home/$user/Downloads/thisIso.iso01:07
induz_I downloaded from here http://cyti.latgola.lv/ruuni/01:07
itaylor57induz_, you .iso md5 sum checks out , so you have a good download01:07
Soothsayerit's annoying me that I can't ping any host / ip in Ubuntu01:07
ActionParsnipinduz_: its clearly too taxing for you and this is getting really boring: http://duckduckgo.com/?q=5341d0e3e692246c22ad7dd31c94c828+austrumi-1.8.5.iso01:07
ActionParsnipinduz_: there is a hit, your file is fine01:08
dliSoothsayer, ping localhost01:08
Soothsayerdli, that works01:08
Soothsayerbut any external host/ip, I always get a 100% packet loss.01:08
dliSoothsayer, ping your router01:08
Soothsayerdli, yes that pings too.01:08
dliSoothsayer, ping your DNS01:08
ActionParsnipinduz_: your file is fine. I suggest you ask in the channel for your chosen distro01:08
ActionParsnipinduz_: the OS is also based on BSD, not mint01:09
Soothsayerdli, my primary dns does not ping, the secondary does.01:09
unomiHow can I change behavior to resize on alt+rightdrag ?01:09
shadows090Soothsayer, i normally ping 127.0.0.1. if that works (which it does), i ping my static ip address. if that does, i ping router, if that does, i ping a dns (i ping 8.8.8.8 since it's google's), and if that works i try pinging google.com. depending on which fails you can tell where the problem is01:09
induz_Ok now the .iso is fine but how can i burn it on my USB to make it bootabe;l01:10
ActionParsnipinduz_: I suggest you ask in the austumi irc channel for support, your issue is not with ubuntu01:10
dliSoothsayer, that might be the cause01:10
unomiinduz_: the simplest way is probably unetbootin01:10
Soothsayershadows090, I use opendns. But it looks you can't ping it. 208.67.222.22201:10
ActionParsnipinduz_: unetbootin may use it, theremay be an issue with the OS and unetbootin which will be given in the austrumi channel;01:10
induz_I am using UNetbootin01:10
shadows090Soothsayer, i am getting responses from that ip01:10
ActionParsnipinduz_: yes, tahts why I gave the above01:10
Soothsayershadows090, hmm.. im not01:11
induz_I dont mind another Linux Ubuntu that can fit into my 1gb USB01:11
ActionParsnipinduz_: they all can, the ISO is 700Mb01:11
SoothsayerHere's my connection information: http://i.imgur.com/Bbu9W.png01:11
Soothsayerok I can't even ping 8.8.8.801:12
induz_this austrumi is 70 MB01:12
induz_sorry 92Mb01:12
shadows090Soothsayer, strange, i can ping both. and you *can* ping your secondary dns?01:12
ActionParsnipinduz_: ok...?01:12
Soothsayershadows090, yes. that's my ISP's DNS.01:12
induz_is there any documentaion for UNETBootin01:13
shadows090Soothsayer, strange. does it give any error message? or just no return pings?01:13
ActionParsnipSoothsayer: can you ping 192.168.1.1 ?01:13
SoothsayerI'm not using DHCP. I configured a static ip01:13
Soothsayershadows090, no return pings. 71 packets transmitted, 0 received, 100% packet loss, time 70008ms01:13
ActionParsnipinduz_: there will be on the unetbooting page, I thought the GUI was pretty self explanatory01:13
SoothsayerActionParsnip, 64 bytes from 192.168.1.1: icmp_req=1 ttl=64 time=1.41 ms01:13
Soothsayerit works fine01:13
Cameron0x4dI don't know where to ask this but, How do I highlight text thats in a PDF file, the same way I would with a real book?01:13
induz_I am downloading MInt now via UNETBootin...let see if that works01:14
ActionParsnipSoothsayer: Soothsayer then you can ping your default gateway, just not beyond. Is the web connection behind the router ok?01:14
shadows090ActionParsnip, he can ping *his* ISP's DNS, but not opendns or google's01:14
induz_Thanks a lot ActionParsnip ....hope it works01:14
SoothsayerActionParsnip, well I'm connected to IRC, Gtalk and I can surf any website. So there's no issue with the internet.01:15
Cameron0x4dSoothsayer, whats your problem?01:15
ActionParsnipinduz_: just so you are aware, mint isnt supported here01:15
SoothsayerCameron0x4d, I can't ping any host/ip beyond my router's.01:15
Cameron0x4dhow are you on isp?01:15
SoothsayerI can ping on my windows devices though.01:15
Cameron0x4di mean IRC***01:15
SoothsayerCameron0x4d, connected via my router.01:15
induz_I tried Ubuntu too01:16
ActionParsnipSoothsayer: if you use your ISPs DNS is it all ok?01:16
SoothsayerCameron0x4d, oh, I'm on the same pc. The net works fine. It's just i can't ping01:16
SoothsayerActionParsnip, hmm.. so I should remove the google dns and try?01:16
Cameron0x4doh, tried to speed up your net, via going to googles dns?01:16
ActionParsnipSoothsayer: yes just change the DNS servers in network manager or /etc/resolv.conf01:16
SoothsayerAlso, I'm connected through a wireless network card. If that makes a difference.01:17
SoothsayerActionParsnip, ok trying it. I might get disconnected.01:17
syn-ackThanks ActionParsnip. Took a lot of choring around to get this thing to work again. Finally had to purge nm, reinstall it then unblock everything with rfkill01:17
ActionParsnipCameron0x4d: i'm fairly sure the ISP DNS will be faster than google's01:17
ActionParsnipsyn-ack: yikes01:17
seclm193hello all01:17
syn-ackOpenDNS is much quicker than your ISP DNS01:17
syn-ackActionParsnip, yeah, this thing locked up hard.01:17
Cameron0x4dActionParsnip: oh i know, because its a widely known thing now, so everyone does it.01:18
ActionParsnipif you install and configure dnsmasq you can make DNS take 0ms01:18
syn-ackCouldnt even get it to come up with a live session01:18
syn-ack'twas really odd01:18
Cameron0x4dWhat are you trying to ping?01:18
Cameron0x4dSoothsayer: can you repeat the entire question for me?01:18
SoothsayerCameron0x4d, any website, say google or bing or ...01:18
Cameron0x4dbut you can connect to google or bing?01:19
SoothsayerCameron0x4d, I can't ping any ip / host from my computer but I can connect to them, yes.01:19
SoothsayerActionParsnip, ok changed dns01:19
SoothsayerActionParsnip, still no ping.01:19
Soothsayernow I just have my ISP's dns configured01:19
syn-ackNow, to figure out why Banshee isnt wanting to poll CDDA info01:20
Cameron0x4dSoothsayer: is this a new thing? did you just set up a new router or something?01:20
SoothsayerCameron0x4d, nope, been happening since day 1 on Ubuntu.01:20
Cameron0x4dSoothsayer: ping 10.0.0.701:20
SoothsayerCameron0x4d, no reply.01:20

karen_seanmc98: read "man tar" and "man gzip" you have an archive like a zip, extract it then look inside01:56
mjj09Anyone good at debugging wireless problems? Connection was working fine, but a family member attempted to use Ndiswrapper and now the wireless card is not showing up.01:56
seanmc98karen_: what do you mean?01:56
karen_your tar.gz is like a .zip file01:56
karen_extract it using the GUI or CLI01:57
seanmc98if i double click it it opens with archive manager01:57
karen_that should do the trick01:57
bcessathnx anyway01:57
karen_mjj09: likely you need to change the driver back to the original, not sure how though..01:59
runicfoxmjj09, have you tried uninstalling ndiswrapper?01:59
mjj09the driver is showing in lspci, but it doesn't seem to be loading01:59
mjj09yes02:00
runicfoxmjj09, have you tried ifdown and ifup?02:01
mjj09no02:01
runicfoxif memory serves, you'll have to sudo it, but try sudo ifdown [interface] && sudo ifup [interface]02:02
runicfoxwhere [interface] is the name of your networking device.02:02
mjj09runifox: sudo ifdown wloan0 ?02:02
mjj09wlan0*02:02
runicfoxyep02:02
ActionParsnipJoseP: sup02:03
mjj09runicfox:   ifdown: interface wlan0 not configured02:03
JosePok so the server is working fine and all until it goes idle. Then it's super slow. Once you enter your password and what not again, it's pretty decent02:03
runicfoxmjj09, okay try sudo ifup wlan002:03
JosePthat's what's going on ActionParsnip02:04

JosePdli picture this02:09
JosePyou don't move your mouse for a while and the computer idles02:09
mjj09runicfox, how would I do that?02:09
JosePwhen you start moving the mouse again, it takes a while for the password screen to come back02:09
JosePthen you enter your password, and log back in02:10
runicfoxmjj09, do you know what kind of wireless card you have?02:10

JosePeven if I don't use the ssh02:10
JosePit's the actual computer02:10
JosePget rid of ssh for a while02:11
runicfoxmjj09, is that the only output from lspci?02:11
JosePto go into the actual computer physically02:11
JosePit still takes a while02:11
mjj09no, there are many lines02:11
JosePI'm aware it's not an ssh issue02:11
runicfoxcan you pastebin the output for me to look at?02:11
dliJoseP, do you run screensaver?02:11
JosePno it just goes black02:11
JosePscreensaver would take up a little more than I want to02:11
dliJoseP, I'm helping you on troubleshooting :(02:12

JosePif you let it sit long enough it'll go black02:13
JosePI don't have a screensaver on it02:13
dliJoseP, if you want to test speed, you may simply run some cron job to measure speed by itself02:14
JosePok02:14
JosePhow would I do that?02:15
dliJoseP, disable power-manager powersaving, disable any cpufreq02:15
MACscr_lappywhats the default password for the live cd?02:15
dliMACscr_lappy, no, password, just press enter02:16
JosePdli, the computer doesn't go to sleep... The display does02:17
cmoixxxuser:ubuntu password:just press enter02:17
JosePwhen the display goes to sleep then is when bad stuff starts happening02:17
runicfoxmjj09, try getting the drivers off of this site: http://bit.ly/c9ERMD02:17
dliJoseP, disable all powersaving features, like hard drive to sleep02:18
JosePyea that wasn't even on in the first place02:18
runicfoxmjj09, you'll need to choose Wireless Networking in the first column, 'Intel Wifi Products' in the second, and then 'Intel Wifi Linkn 5300 and Intel Wifi Link 5100 Products' in the third.02:18
runicfoxmjj09, then select the Linux operating system and grab the driver from there.02:19
dliJoseP, again, I suggest you to enable public key login for ssh, disable UseDNS for ssh, and try again to check ssh login speed02:20
runicfoxor you could just grab: http://www.intellinuxwireless.org/iwlwifi/downloads/iwlwifi-5000-ucode-8.83.5.1-1.tgz02:20

gamingdroidBeen trying to find a list of companies using Ubuntu Server as their web server, but unable to find it. Anyone know of a list?03:19
ldrTrentonAdams: and you run xmodmap .Xmodmap?03:19
IdleOnegamingdroid: perhaps email canonical, that is not really an Ubuntu support question03:19

TrentonAdamsldr: ^^03:20
ldrTrentonAdams: lets query03:21
Carmeni cant dim mi laptop screen ligth,,is there a package that resolve that ?03:21
tman_never mind i was looking in the wrong place03:21
tman_thanks that works really good03:21
qintman_: This: grep ssh /var/log/auth* | less03:21
tman_and i could make a cron job to run that every so often.03:22
tman_why is the wildcard in the command i understand what it means but why is it needed03:24
Troy^I am trying to run a script from nautilus but i would also like to run a gnome-terminal with the code inside of it to see the process of the code being run, how would one do this with nautilus03:25
qintman_: cron, yes, but different command, ls /var/log to see how it is organized.03:25
unomiIf, by chance, you installed i686 on a x86_64 capable system, is there a way to change over?03:26
PsyCl0neHi all. I was wondering if there was a way that I could connect to my ubuntu ssh server and then connect to a windows share that is on the same network as the ssh server. This will also be done from another network03:26
tman_one sec what i was really trying to do is make ssh log into a different file in the first place? to make it easier to go through03:26
poi77Hi -- I have my host connected to a switch, then I shutdown the port on the switch, should I expect the kernel to notice and display something different in ifconfig03:26
unomiPsyCl0ne: yes.03:26
unomiPsyCl0ne: there are potentially many ways, really03:27
tman_i know it can be done but im not sure how03:27
SAChocoboHello, I am in desperate need of some help.03:27
PsyCl0neunomi: Ill honestly start off with an apology just because Im really new to doing anything remotely and honestly Ive just recently gotten my ssh server up and running. But apart from that how would I go about doing this?03:27
unomiPsyCl0ne: a fairly simple way would be to mount the windows share as smbfs on the system that you are ssh'ing into, then it will simply appear as any other directory03:28
qintman_: hm... moment.03:28
unomiPsyCl0ne: another way could be to let the computer you are ssh'ing into forward ports for the windows box03:29
tman_maybe im just being lazy cause thats really what i wanted to do03:29
PsyCl0neunomi: I have ubuntu server as my ssh, the latest version I believe as well. So how would I add these shares to the server?03:29
ldrPsyCl0ne: in one sentence: mount -t cifs \\AdressoftheWindowsBox\Sharename <mountpoint>03:30
unomiPsyCl0ne: google says: http://forum.visionopen.com/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=569903:30
SAChocoboI recently downloaded the "CompizConfig Settings Manager" from the Ubuntu Software Center, and after messing with it, my dock and top menubar no longer exist. How do I reset the compiz graphics settings (if possible)?03:31
tman_i need just the sshd login attempts to be logged into their own file how would i do that ive been racking my brain but i dont know how03:31
unomiPsyCl0ne: if that is complete gibberish to you, then go through this first: http://www.howtogeek.com/forum/topic/mount-an-smbfs-in-ubuntu03:31
PsyCl0neldr, unomi: Thank you both :)03:31
Troy^I have created a script that pulls the filename of the file i use the script into the code as a variable. Now the code being run is prefered to be viewed and has somewhat user input that would be prefered to view in gnome-terminal. So how does one get the script to run nautilus and as well run the code in a new gnome-terminal in order to view the code03:32
mecablazeIs it possible to install a .deb file to my home directory?03:32
unomiPsyCl0ne: note that you might want to have an entry for it in fstab, that way it tries to mount it on every boot03:32
Gaming4JCAnyone know if I can run command that can tell if a program died and relaunch it about every 60mins?03:33
unomiPsyCl0ne: otherwise ofcourse, you could have a lil script that does it for you on demand03:33
PsyCl0neunomi: fstab?03:33
qintman_: look at example 2 in man inotifywait, you will run script to monitor auth.log and make live update.03:33
Gaming4JCI need it for a server. I think cronjob might work...03:33
tman_ok03:33
tman_one sec03:33
unomiPsyCl0ne: man fstab    and less /etc/fstab03:33
Gaming4JCit's a temp fix until we fix the bug causing the exe to die :P03:33
shane#03:33
unomiPsyCl0ne: basically it is a file which lists the filesystems to attempt to mount03:33
ldrtman_: i just read your problem what about configuring your syslog?03:34
Gaming4JCnvm I'm googling it03:34
ldrtman_: if you are using rsyslog(standard on ubuntu afaik) have a look at this http://www.kiwilight.com/etc/rsyslog.conf03:34
tman_alright03:34
PsyCl0neunomi: ok thank you, Ill have to read the howtogeek site though. If I have any questions mind if I hit you up again?03:34
unomildr: any hints on switching a system over from i686 to _64?03:35
ldrtman_: their you should find some pretty good example how to log stuff in diffrent files depending on programm03:35
unomiPsyCl0ne: that is what we are here for03:35
PsyCl0ne:)03:35
ldrunomi: sorry no i am pretty new to this 64bit stuff03:35
unomiPsyCl0ne: don't take references to `man something` as anything but an affirmation that I believe you deserve to know where to get the full information ;)03:35

Guest87172I'd like to set up my desktop to run win7 on ssd/and a 500gb for storage, with another 500 for ubuntu03:36
Guest87172pretty simple, right? I imagine I just format the extra hdd03:37
Guest87172then install ubuntu over the top03:37
SAChocoboI recently downloaded the "CompizConfig Settings Manager" from the Ubuntu Software Center, and after messing with it, my dock and top menubar no longer exist. How do I reset the compiz graphics settings (if possible)?03:37
ldrtman_:if you have trouble using this tell me i really dont think messing around with cronjobs copying stuff out of log files is the best solution03:37
DangerOnTheRangrGuest87172: Make sure to install Windows first - Windows has a notorious record of erasing the MBR03:37
adubzhow can i specify to look for just two interfaces ifconfig wlan or eth03:38
adubzand not show loopback03:38
DangerOnTheRangrSAChocobo:  gconftool-2 --recursive-unset /apps/compiz in a terminal should do the trick 03:39
unomiSAChocobo: have a look in the compiz panel and see if you unticked "Ubuntu Unity Plugin"03:39
SAChocoboI tried that twice now...03:39
zeppelin101is it possible to unmap the 'super03:39
tman_ive never edited this before and i need help if you could03:39

zeppelin101anyone know if it is possible to unmap the 'super' key (with Windows logo on it)?03:40

Troy^I am trying to run a script from nautilus but i would also like to run a gnome-terminal with the code inside of it to see the process of the code being run, how would one do this with nautilus03:43
tman_would the cron tab look like "@boot /home/tman/ssh_log.sh" ?03:43
ldrtman_: you see the query?03:43
unomigoodtime: it sometimes helps to have /etc/fstab open next to the man pages03:43
qintman_: @reboot03:43
unomigoodtime: makes it easier to create a link03:43
SAChocoboOMG03:43
PsyCl0neldr: when you gave me this command "mount -t cifs \\AdressoftheWindowsBox\Sharename <mountpoint>" what exactly is the mount point?03:44
tman_so everytime i reboot it would pipe the auth.log into another file03:44
OmegaFortePsyCl0ne, The mount point is where you want the remote to link locally.03:44
ldrPsyCl0ne, whatever you want it to be03:44
tman_just greping the ssh logins03:44
SAChocobounomi: You were right. It was the checkbox...03:44
OmegaFortePsyCl0ne, Like /home/remote_box?03:44
ldrPsyCl0ne, make some folder like mkdir /mnt/windows103:44
ldrand use it03:44

PsyCl0neldr: Oh thank you.03:46
qintman_: Well, both. inotify trigger grep and pipe in case of modification auth.log, rest is simple, one more mistake, instead of > should be >>03:46

wadHi folks. I'm trying to work with a netbook running ubuntu, and it's got a file in the home directory that is making me go nuts. Apparently it has something to do with gnome desktop. ls -ls shows it like this:03:51
wadd?????????  ? ?     ?           ?                ? .gvfs03:51
ldrCarmen: what does "cat /sys/class/backlight/acpi_video0/brightness" say?03:51
wadEr, I meant "ls -la". Sorry.03:51
wadI can't delete the file, move it, or anything. It's making it bear to try to backup the filesystem.03:52
qinwad: How do you back up?03:52
wadqin: This computer's display is dead. So I connected to it on the network, and tried a "scp -r" from the home directory. This file killed that effort completely.03:53
qinwad: rsync have --exclude option03:53
wadI can try that.03:53
PsyCl0neI made a directory on the ssh server /mnt/winmov, then I tried mounting the windows shares with the command "sudo mount -t cifs \\192.168.0.100\Movies /mnt/winmov" , but I get the error out put of http://pastebin.com/eQrFu2jz what did I do wrong?03:53
lsvwould there be any explanation as to why my wireless card would disappear after rebooting?03:54
theadminPsyCl0ne: Put the share name in single quotes.03:54
theadminPsyCl0ne: i.e., mount -t cifs '\\192.168.0.100\Movies' /mnt/winmov03:55
TrentonAdamslsv: Did someone steal it?03:55
PsyCl0netheadmin: I think I broke it my terminal has a > with a flashing cursor...03:55
lsvlol03:55
TrentonAdamslsv: hehe03:56
theadminPsyCl0ne: Hit Ctrl+C03:56
TrentonAdamslsv: Sorry, just checking the obvious. lol03:56
theadminPsyCl0ne: And try again03:56
TrentonAdamslsv: Seriously though, what do you mean by "dissappear"?03:56
lsvTrentonAdams: I'm pretty sure, the card is still there03:56
theadminPsyCl0ne: Or actually you can try: mount -t cifs \\\\192.168.0.100\\Movies /mnt/winmov03:56
PsyCl0netheadmin: it spat out the same error03:56
lsvthe computer wont find it03:57
TrentonAdamslsv: "ifconfig -a" show anything?03:57
theadminPsyCl0ne: \ is an escape character in bash you see03:57
adubzhow would i specify with one command ifconfig wlan and eth03:57

lsvI turn off the computer, let me boot it up03:57

ldrhmm strange03:58
lsvTrentonAdams: It is back :D03:58
KijutsuIs there any software available for Ubunutu to host a streaming video webcam?03:58
theadminPsyCl0ne: Odd, I'm not sure cifs is the right filesystem type then03:58
TrentonAdamslsv: hmm, that is very odd.  Sounds almost like a driver bug or system bug of some sort.03:58
lsvthe problem now is I need to make it work03:58
qinKijutsu: vlc?03:58
TrentonAdamslsv: next time try restarting it in the connection applet03:58
ldrPsyCl0ne, y mistake you have to use // instead of \\03:58
ldrcifs is right btw03:59
Kijutsuqin: Long story short -- I'm looking to host a webcam strea m for others.03:59
TrentonAdamslsv: hopefully there won't be a next time though p)03:59
lsvTrentonAdams: I'm trying to set up the card, but I have no luck.03:59
PsyCl0netheadmin: Well Im not sure what file system you could be looking for, the shares are on an NTFS partition03:59
ldrPsyCl0ne in windows you use \\ in linux you use // my mistake as i said03:59
TrentonAdamslsv: oh, why not?03:59
theadminPsyCl0ne: Do how ldr said03:59
lsvTrentonAdams: I don't know, I get all sort of weird msg.04:00
TrentonAdamslsv: Hmm, probably can't help you there then.  I'm no expert on wirless cards in linux04:00
lsvTrentonAdams: Noooooooooooooooooooooooo!!  I mean, no problem, thanks :D04:01
TrentonAdamslsv: I was hoping it would just be a module not loading, which I could help you with. :P04:01
theadminlsv: There's a cool guide on configuring wireless in Linux here: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Wireless_Setup (please ignore the Arch-specific bits, such as those refering to /etc/rc.conf or pacman)04:02
theadminlsv: If that helps at all.04:02
lsvTrentonAdams: thanks.04:02
dibblegohow do I change the text editor that .sh files open with?04:03

smegzorRecently my graphics shuts down (black screens) a short time into playing any game that uses accelerated graphics.  I'm running 10.04 with official NVidia drivers and 2 monitors.  What can I try that might fix this?  When it happens, programs still run and I can hear the game, but I can't get a display at all and I can't remote in.  It seems to knock out ssh as well.04:15
theadminldr: Or you can always use mousepaste04:15
ldrtheadmin: thanks i got it04:15
wolstman_: ssh listens on normally all interfaces, incl. loopback, so yes04:16

glissis there a way to reinstall the users-admin tool, or repair the system settings applications?04:18
PsyCl0neOk so I think Ive gotten the share mounted, but now how do I access it?04:18
GasseusUmm... I'm trying to open an ssh tunnel, and it giving me an error "channel 3: open failed: administratively prohibited: open failed"04:18
ldrPsyCl0ne: how to you want to access it? through ssh i thought this should be possible now04:19
PsyCl0neGasseus: I am also having this issue with my ssh server but it starts to spam various numbers instead of just 304:20
rwwGasseus: is the port on your local machine under 1024? if so, you need to be root04:20
rwwI think it's 1024 anyway. something around there.04:20
GasseusThe port on the local machine is 808004:20
rwwhrm.04:20

PsyCl0neGasseus: Ive just completed that04:24
wolsPsyCl0ne: if you want to encrypt your connection, use a VPN04:24
GasseusPsyCl0ne so you can access the files on your server?04:24
PsyCl0newols: I dont know what Im doing I know what I have and want04:25
tman_qin thank you very much for putting up with my rambling. sorry if i started to annoy you a little.04:25
wolsit's your waste of time04:25
PsyCl0neGasseus: Actually Im connected to my ubuntu server that is my ssh tunnel and my win 7 shares are on the same network. Im actually doing this remotely04:25

GasseusWindows 7 shares are on same network as ubuntu server, and your on a different network?04:26

Exodeusanyone have problems updating from 10.10 to 11.04??04:31
glissThe application is somehow hoarked on my Ubuntu 11.0404:31
PsyCl0newols: ok so I actually dont know much about these windows file systems and such like you were trying to ask me above. I do have access to my ssh server and my shares are available to all04:31
GasseusPsyCl0ne Once you're done with that, do "sudo sshfs username@host:/path/that/samba/share/is/mounted/on/server /path/to/mount/locally"04:32
glissI can't do anything at all with a user in that utility04:32
blade_gliss, have you right clicked on the menu and tried to "edit menu" to see if you can find it?04:32
wolsgliss: I asked you something04:32
glissblade: its there, it just doesn't work right04:32
blade_gliss, it may just be hidden and need to be checked again... wols knows way more about 11.4 than i04:32

blade_xerxeslins, do you need to recover both your user name and your password?04:38
glissdrwillis: It does the same thing as when I sudo users-admin...just hangs greyed out and I have to force quit to close it04:38
glissand no...the window is not maximized04:38

blade_dr_willis, is that different in 11.4 than in 10.10 as i have mine open and do not see the icon you and theadmin are talking about04:39
xerxeslinstheamin and blade: thank you. sorry but my question is about nickname IRC. i dont know where request help04:39
theadminxerxeslins: #freenode04:39
xerxeslinsoh thanx!04:39
xerxeslins=)04:39
glissso that utility is part of compiz? any idea how to maybe reinstall it?04:40
blade_dr_willis, would ubuntu tweeks help gliss on this?04:40
glissI tried apt-get install reinstall users-settings...but says package not found04:40
theadmingliss: No, that utility is not a part of compiz, compiz is the window manager. And by greying the window out it tells you that the app in this window hangs.04:40
dr_willisgliss:  its not part of compiz.  compiz greys out anythimg that  'dosenot respond'04:41
froeshi guys.... i am having a problem with ubuntu 10.10... i have edited something on visudo to ignore asking password that works perfectly if i run from tty2, but if insude gnome, it does not work. any ideas ????04:41
PsyCl0neGasseus: so Ive done what youve asked sudo sshfs robbie@sshserver:/mnt/winmov /mnt/winmov but then it spits out read: Connection reset by peer04:41
glissdr_willis: This is the output in terminal after I force quit..."Fatal IO error 11 (Resource temporarily unavailable) on X server :0.0."04:42
GasseusPsyCl0ne The files are indeed actively mounted on your server?04:42
PsyCl0neGassues: would it make a difference if I were to be tunneling through the ssh server as we speak?04:42
dr_willisPsyCl0ne:  you dont need to do sshfs as root04:42
PsyCl0neGasseus: How can  i check ?04:42
GasseusPsyCl0ne it shouldn't make a difference04:42
GasseusTo check "ls /mnt/winmov"04:42
Gasseuson server04:43
AkivaIIsssssssssassssssddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddd04:43
dr_willisPsyCl0ne:  can you ssh to the server normally?04:43
PsyCl0neGassues: yea it comes up with a huge list of all the files04:43
GasseusPsycl0ne Umm...04:43
PsyCl0nedr_willis: I dont understand your question04:43
GasseusPsyCl0ne The tunneling might have something to do with it04:44
PsyCl0neok one sec brb04:44
GasseusPsyCl0ne Try making your ssh access restrictions to be 2 connections per user rather then 104:44
Roy__Hello everyone, I'm having trouble with sftp in Grsync (and other proggies) the sftp connection to remote computer does not show up in Places, but the sftp connection can be seen in a normal Nautilus (Places) window, how can I enable this in Grsync?04:45
PsyCl0neGasseus: through sshd_config correct?04:45
Viking667'llo. I'm having a fairly major problem - I've just installed fglrx-8.840, and now I don't have gdm, kdm, nor even xdm. And if I ask apt-get to install them, it tells me it'll have to remove fglrx and fglrx-amdcccle to do so, so it can install x11-utils and a few other things. What's going on here?04:46
GasseusPsyCl0ne Honestly i don't know I've always used a perl script for configuration04:46
ldrPsyCl0ne: have a look at this file /etc/security/limits.conf04:47
blade_Viking667, try fglxrinfo in terminal04:48
ldrPsyCl0ne,  it normally limits the parallel connections04:48
Viking667can't, I'm not yet in X.04:49
PsyCl0neldr: in this file I do not see a max parallel connections option04:51
PsyCl0neldr: would you like a pastebin of it??04:51
blade_Viking667, you can run that from the command line before you get into x.... you may need to run "sudo aticonfig --initial -f"04:51
Gasseusits in the ssh conf04:51
PsyCl0neGassues: kk04:52
blade_Viking667, that will let ati set up your xorg.conf04:52
Gasseusmax parallel connections or something04:52
ldrPsyCl0ne, no their normally is no limitation set04:52
ldrPsyCl0ne, maybe you just didnt have one04:52
Gasseusldr the default limit is 3 connections per ip simultaneously04:52
ldrPsyCl0ne, you can in theory limit it through iptables too, but i dont think you did that either04:52
Active_MancanoHello! I had a quick question. I just got a netbook, what would be the best linux version for it?04:53
ldrGasseus, really then i never needed more, hard to imagine but could be04:53
GasseusActive_Mancano I'm sure you can guess the answer to that question based on where you are04:53
theadminActive_Mancano: We only support Ubuntu here, PM me if you want my help, cause I wouldn't mind04:54
blade_Active_Mancano, best bet is to get a few different live cd's and try them out before you install anything and see what fits for you best04:54
zeppelin101random question: if i build a package from source using 'make', then 'makefile' and delete the extracted dir from which i installed (and thus the original makefile), then removal of the program will need to be done manually, piece by piece?04:54
theadmin!checkinstall | zeppelin10104:54
ubottuzeppelin101: checkinstall is a wrapper to "make install", useful for installing programs you compiled. It will create a .deb package, which will be listed in the APT database and can be uninstalled like other packages. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/CheckInstall - Read the warnings at the top and bottom of that web page, and DO NOT interrupt CheckInstall while it's running!04:54
Viking667anyhow, that gives me a xorg.conf, but I had one of those already. What I don't have is a gdm or kdm or even an Xdm.04:55
zeppelin101theadmin: very cool, thanks04:55
GasseusViking667 Are you online?04:55
Viking667that gave me four lines...04:56
Viking667(fglrxinfo)04:56
blade_Gasseus, please tell me that is rhetorical question04:56
Viking667Gasseus: uh, yeah, what do you mean by "online"?04:56
GasseusOnline on the machine you lack the *dm on04:56
Gasseusblade_ No, just misworded04:56
PsyCl0neldr: I cant find a limit on connection in that file either04:56
blade_Viking667, have you ran xrandr ? from terminal04:57
GasseusPsycl0ne well somewhere is a limit and we can't do anything until its fixed... possibly isp04:57
blade_Viking667, what i am looking  for is the conflict....04:57
Gasseusif its ISP there's a solution04:57
ldrPsyCl0ne, then just put "*         hard    maxlogins       10" in the file limits.conf04:57
Gasseusalbeit messy04:57
ldrPsyCl0ne, should raise the limit to 1004:57
Viking667give me a moment...04:58
Gasseusldr if there's no config thing, then there's no limit on the machine, meaning its an ISP limit04:58
ldrPsyCl0ne, if Gasseus is right with his normally limit is 304:58
ldrno Gasseus sais if their is no option its is 3 which could very well be the case04:58
Viking667I'll drop out of X (as it's currently started up as root) and fire it up as the user. I'll have to tweak something at this end though.04:58
GasseusPsycl0ne There's a way to evade the ISP limit, should I dig it up for you?04:58
Viking667I'll be back in about a couple of minutes.04:58
Gasseusldr but if there's no conf option there's no limit04:59
PsyCl0neGasseus: hmm if you can but Im not sure I have this limit04:59
=== user0 is now known as Guest49408
GasseusPsycl0ne Well nothing can go wrong, except a mediocre degradation in preformance04:59
PsyCl0neok how about this05:00
ldrGasseus, i thought you wrote default limit is 3 okay05:00
PsyCl0nejust because Im so new at this is there a possibility that I have incorrectly setup my SSH server?05:00
GasseusPsyCl0ne its "ssh -L 22:localhost:2222 username@host"05:00
=== troy__ is now known as Troy^
Gasseusldr well yes, but there's no coded limit in openssh05:00
ldrno thats true05:00
Gasseuser wait... hard coded default is -1, or infinite05:01
ldrah thanks thats what i thought05:01
ldrso this ist not his problem05:01
GasseusPsycl0ne "ssh -L 2222:localhost:22 user@host"05:01
PsyCl0neGasseus I actually use ssh -p 23566 robbie@sshserver -D 808005:02
Gasseuspsycl0ne but you need to have ssh go over an ssh tunnel to evade the isp limitation05:02
PsyCl0neso we are gonna ssh tunnel an ssh tunnel?05:02
GasseusPsycl0ne Yep05:03
Gasseus:D05:03
GasseusFirst, you do "ssh 2222:localhost:22 username@host"05:03
PsyCl0neis that on my laptop ?05:03
Gasseusthen "ssh -D 8080 localhost -p 2222"05:03
Gasseusyes its on your laptop05:03
Gasseusmake sure all other ssh connections are done before you start05:04
Gasseusthen you do "sshfs -p 2222 user@127.0.0.1:/mnt/whatev /mnt/whatevlocally"05:04

ldroh so soliciting did work here okay: " i have this old lamp my grany used for reading and dont really need it anymore...."05:07
blade_hughes net has a daily download limit.... they make a monitor for windows but do not support Ubuntu has anyone heard of this and a possible solution to this problem?05:07
ldrzambezi_,  in short run adduser as root05:08
PsyCl0neGasseus: I got this ssh: Could not resolve hostname 2222:localhost:22: Name or service not known  with the first command you gave me05:08
zambezi_Thank you Gasseus, i am assuming that is a command, and would i also set up the password at the same time05:08
GasseusPsycl0ne ok, switch the numbers around05:08
zambezi_ldr, sounds good, i will give that a shot, thank05:08
ldrzambezi_, adduser <username> it aks for the password then05:08

Gasseusblade_ that you don't know all the intricities of ssh?05:10
blade_Gasseus, lol and then some05:10
Gasseusblade_ I just know this stuff because I've had to evade at least a few school proxies in my time05:11
blade_Gasseus, i'm learning a bit though :)05:11
Gasseusthats always good05:11
GasseusPsycl0ne you could just try putty05:11
Troy^what would be not allowing me to max my connection in linux?05:11
GasseusTroy^ Bandwidth or count?05:11
Troy^bandwidth wise05:12
Gasseusif its bandwidth, the answer is lag05:12
goddardhas anyone tried the sevenmachines/flash ?05:12
Troy^lag ? lol05:12
Gasseusyeah05:12
Gasseuslong story short, but thats your answer05:12
blade_Troy^, do you use a router?05:12
PsyCl0neok guys quick question when I first open up a terminal to connect to my ssh server it all goes good then when I begin to browse, that terminal window starts acting up with errors like channel nn: open failed: administratively prohibited: open failed. is that normal?05:13
Troy^yes but i have no problem in windows maxing my connection05:13
alazare619i need some help with keyboard shortcuts i want to reenable the alt tab and alt f4 and alt f2 functions and xfce doesnt have them by default whats the command i need to add for changing windows closing windows and run command05:13
goddardhttps://launchpad.net/~sevenmachines/+archive/flash05:13
goddardanyone used this?05:13
GasseusPsyCl0ne Thats a bug in the latest version of openssh. Do ubuntu-bugs openssh on the local machine shell05:13
alazare619can someone go to system keyboards and copy the ones for alt f2 alt f4 and alt tab05:13
blade_Troy^, windows xp and up will hold back 20% of your bandwith for "windows use"05:13
theadminalazare619: Xfce does all that... You sure you're not running some awkward window manager on top of Xfce?05:13
Gasseusblade_ He's asking about linux05:14
blade_Gasseus, i understand that but he is also telling me that he gets "all" of his bandwith on windows05:14
alazare619theadmin:  well to be honest im on pclinuxos but i know ubuntu has them by default05:14
GasseusTroy^ TCP is set up so that if it detects congestion in any way (lag causes that to be detected), it will reduce the amount of throughput05:14
Gasseusblade_ Also, the 20% is a myth05:14
theadminalazare619: We can't support that...05:14
alazare619theadmin: so i just need someone to copy the name of the commands for alt f2 alt f4 and alt tab05:14
theadminalazare619: PM me, I'll be right back with those shortcuts :D05:15
blade_Gasseus, ahh ok... still learning :)05:15

Troy^? so how do i fix it05:15
mcurranAnyone here use pygooglevoice?05:15

mcurranOr have any hints on how I can fix my microphone?05:16
Troy^ok no its not my isp05:16
frozenpacketI just installed Ubuntu on my other Desktop its a HP D530U install worked but the graphics are messed up any one know what i could do to fix it?05:16
GasseusTroy^ Its not your isp, your correct. Its lag from your isp that is mistaken as tcp congestion05:16
mcurranwhat's your graphics card or chipset frozenpacket?05:16
=== tfilipczuk is now known as makak
frozenpacketmcurran: its stalk had windows XP on it before that ran good but put Ubuntu on and the graphics are messed up05:17

Troy^well it works fine in windows 7 very easy to max my bandwidth05:17
GasseusTroy^ Please read the name of the channel, and tell me that again if you want to annoy me.05:18
GasseusI gave you the answer to your problem, you need to accept facts for facts.05:18

GasseusIts how the internet works. Get over it05:18
Troy^lol no05:19
Nisstyreyes05:19
Troy^im not getting near the speeds i should be05:19

mcurranthat's irrelevant (ati, nvidia, intel?)  run the following command in terminal and paste the output here:  "lspci | grep video"05:20
Troy^blade_, i understand that things such as lag exists05:20
GasseusTroy^ I'm giving you homework. Look up and read up on "tcp slow start" and "tcp congestion avoidance"05:20
Troy^blade_, but im talking about big bandwidth capability differences05:20
frozenpacketit has intel05:21
aukCan someone give me a recommended settings for how I should format a harddrive, via, the "cfdisk /dev/sda" command? On a 2TB harddrive.05:21
mcurranactually type this "lspci | grep VGA05:21
GasseusTroy^ The best you can do is try rebooting05:21
Troy^Gasseus, alright its just i've never seen anything like it before05:22
GasseusTroy^ Then maybe you should turn bittorrent off and see if that helps you.05:22
GasseusSeriously, there is NO way to FIX it but giving your ISP the B&M05:23
Troy^Gasseus, hmm but i can get so much faster speed same site different OS05:23

GasseusTroy^ Deal with it05:23
Troy^lol05:24
Troy^you're ridiculous05:24
Semitonesgasseus stop giving antagonistic advice :/ -- if the question is why does OS 1 have better bandwith than OS 2, the answer is between the router and the computer probably05:24
airtonixcan someone ban *!*@110.138.101.200 from freenode please05:24
rwwairtonix: ask #freenode05:25
Troy^Semitones, and that is what im trying to find out if its a compatibility issue with WPA2 or a driver perhaps?05:25
GasseusSemitones: The answer is how much other people who live near him are using bittorrent, not the connection to the router05:25
SemitonesGasseus, a simple test would be run a speedtest, reboot, run it again on OS 2.05:25
Troy^Gasseus, but im talking about this is all the time not at one given moment05:25

HackNewtonubernerd, so what should i do it ? format it in NTFS ?05:46
aukFor a machine with: 2TB harddrive space, and 16Gb of ram, what would be recommended for SWAP size?05:46
ubernerdHackNewton That'd be advisable I guess :D05:46
ubernerdauk 16 gb05:47
blade_ubernerd, i have a 1tb drive that is Fat32 and use it on linux.... or is that not the same?05:47
aukOkies, thanks ubernerd.05:47
ubernerdblade_ thats not the same fat32 is 1999, exfat is 201005:47
goddardfor some reason when i move my windows around the screen it is kind of glitchy05:47
HackNewtonubernerd, well i have bad experince converting FAT to NTFS drive for Pen Drive05:47
blade_ubernerd, ahh ok thank you05:47
ubernerdHackNewton Just back up all your data you should be fine05:47
HackNewtonmy old pen drive after format into NTFS refuses to link with windows05:48
ubernerdHackNewton Format it in Windows, select NTFS05:48
blade_HackNewton, just convert it to fat with the disk utility05:48
blade_HackNewton, or just do like ubernerd  said lol05:48
ubernerdHackNewton you can do so by going into my computer, right clicking the drive, and click format05:48
ubernerdmake sure it says NTFS05:49
HackNewtonblade_, i think that should try05:49
HackNewtongive*05:49
HackNewtonubernerd, thanks i will try05:49
ubernerdShould work :D05:49

einseenaiguys, is power consumption fixed in post 2.6.38 kernels? or not yet?05:54
ubernerdgoddard easier05:55
goddardreally?05:55
ubernerdeinseenai nope05:55
ubernerdeinseenai there's a patch that's going to be in the next alpha upstream kernel, but that will wait for oneiric05:55
HackNewtoneinseenai, no but 3 promises that05:55
Vustomgoddard: What else can I use..05:56
goddardshell05:56
einseenaiubernerd, oneiric will use 3.0, right?05:56
goddardand a shell script05:56
ubernerdeinseenai yes05:56
goddardwith a shortcut05:56
einseenaiubernerd, or 3.105:56

einseenaiubernerd, ok05:56
Vustomdr_ willis, ubernerd: I changed it to the IP and I don't get the error but nothing happens..05:56
ubernerdeinseenai if 3.1 is available at release, 3.105:56
VustomThe terminal does nothing, just sits there and doesn't ask for a password. :/05:57
ubernerdVustom: Use HOST, not USER@HOST, Putty will ask for USER05:57
einseenaiubernerd, so patch will land in 3.0 or 3.1? it's upstream patch, right? or ubuntu only?05:57
ubernerdeinseenai upstream and 3.0 maybe05:57
Vustomubernerd, Thanks!05:57

grigoriim using ubuntu 11.04 how to add 'thinks' to desktop panel?06:21
godlywhizkengrigori, drag and drop?06:21
ubernerdquote of the day06:22
DETERMINOLOGYHow well does wubi work with ubuntu linux?06:22
cryptodira_my wireless is greyed out....the daemon log reports:  NetworkManager[1273]: <info> WiFi disabled by radio killswitch; disabled by state file, so, the question now becomes.... where is this state file located and is it correctable?   amd64/06:22
godlywhizkenis 11.04 any good? i'06:22
godlywhizkeni'm still on 10.04 and in love with it06:22
GirlyGirlDETERMINOLOGY: It works but install to partition is more recommended06:22
ubernerdDETERMINOLOGY: It works by having a disk image in the windows partition and booting off of it when you want ubuntu, and booting off of the ntfs image when you want windows06:22
nsadmingodlywhizken, for the good ones, drive 99 miles straight south, turn left, then drive 99 more miles, pull into the gas station, find the attendant and say "where the heck am I"06:22
nsadminseriously... you have to decide which one is good by trying them out06:23
godlywhizkenhmmm, nsadmin06:23
grigori<godlywhizken> not to the side panel. i want to add the "force quit" application to the panel at the top of the desktop06:23
ubernerdgodlywhizken IMO, 11.04 is only good if you install gnome306:23
DETERMINOLOGYI wanna dual boot but whats the best way of going about it and whats the best way to del the ubuntu partition incase i dont want to dual boot any more06:23
godlywhizkenubernerd, that's exactly what i wanted to use gnome306:23
godlywhizkenI was actually going to try and install gnome3 on 10.04... but i've just been hella busy06:24
ubernerdDETERMINOLOGY There's plenty of guides on google06:24
ubernerdgodlywhizken the only thing with installing gnome 3 is you need to remove gnome-games-extras first06:24
godlywhizkennsadmin, where you answering my question about good ubuntu version or cvs clients?06:24
godlywhizkenoic06:24
godlywhizkeni could just sudo apt-get remove gnome-games-extras; sudo apt-get install gnome3??06:25

godlywhizkenhmm for some reason i t hought unity was more a end user type of interface06:26
godlywhizkenas in no use in really command line interface06:26
godlywhizkenalthough same with gnome... but even more with unity06:26
godlywhizkendude anyone know any cvs clients?06:26
ubernerdgnome is a more well developed software set06:26
ubernerdgodlywhizken I don't suppose apt-get install cvs got you anywhere did it06:27
nsadmingodlywhizken, so have you found something good yet?06:27
godlywhizkenyeah i just like gnome better... it's funny i want to move to diff distro or even kubuntu06:27
aukAre there alternative commands I can use to download files? I'm messing with some weird set up that has no apt-get or wget.06:27
stephenmartyrubernerd a magnet?06:27
godlywhizkenbut i think i just like gnome more...06:27
ubernerdstephenmartyr Basically, what you need to do is back up your data and reformat06:27
dr_willisauk curl  perhaps06:27
stephenmartyrnoooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo06:27
aukcommand not found.06:27
djjonexi like the bar on the left...if gnome has it then ill switch to gnome06:27
godlywhizkennsadmin, i was wondering what you were referring to... the cvs or ubuntu versions?06:28
ubernerdstephenmartyr be happy you can at least save the drive :D06:28
stephenmartyrit looks like the problem is on one side of the p[artition not the other06:28

blade_djjonex, the bar on the left IS unity lol06:28
djjonexthats why im keeping unity06:28
djjonexlol06:28
ubernerddr_willis there was one time that i had an ssh server that only had python on it06:29

godlywhizkenwhy does gnu have info pages and hate man pages?06:30
ubernerdstephenmartyr use that disk06:30
ubernerdbackup your data first tho06:30
aukdr_willis: I just realized it's Debian GNU/Linux 5.0 \n \l06:30
ubernerdgodlywhizken because gnu is gnu06:30
stephenmartyr'ok should i do a partition still?and what are the recovery modes for?06:31
godlywhizkenubernerd, they just have to be different?06:31
ubernerdgodlywhizken they just have to develop everything in house06:31
stephenmartyrhmm i can back it up on a cd right?06:31
godlywhizkeni swear linux is just a bunch of subgroups with different opinions creating different things accomplishing the same things06:31
ubernerdstephenmartyr if your windows partition works, you can back it up onto that06:31
ActionParsnipnsadmin: the hardware driver app will install the driver for the video chip. Possibly also the wifi depending on the chip it uses06:31
nsadminyou're talking about formatting and backing up almost in the same breath06:31
ubernerdgodlywhizken thats EXACTLY what it is06:31
godlywhizkeni still love gnu though06:32
ubernerdbut linux is just the kernel, linux OS is what your thinking of06:32
godlywhizkenwell linux/gnu06:32
stephenmartyrthats cuz i dont know the technical terms that well so im a tad confused06:32
dr_willisgodlywhizken:  gnu is for more then linux also.. linux is just another subgroup...06:32

aukNano is better.06:33
ubernerdI'd like to use freebsd, but I've never figured out how to install it06:33
cryptodira_my wireless is greyed out....the daemon log reports:  NetworkManager[1273]: <info> WiFi disabled by radio killswitch; disabled by state file, so, the question now becomes.... where is this state file located and is it correctable?  10.10  amd64/06:33
godlywhizkenright now... my 3 distros that i'm choosing from are ubuntu(which is tarted) slackware and freebsd06:33
ubernerdI wish there was a livecd installer06:33
nsadminActionParsnip, hmm, that would be good, solve two at once. I suppose I'll reboot into it and see what happens... btw, if I'm going to look at unity, what flavor of xdm do I use and what package is it in06:33
ubernerdgodlywhizken freebsd isn't a distro its an os06:34
nsadminand thanks for the reply06:34
ActionParsnipgodlywhizken: its the same in every OS06:34
godlywhizkenubernerd, isn't a distro of unix?06:34
ubernerdgodlywhizken no its a derivitive06:34
godlywhizkenubernerd, yes you are the 'uber' nerd :)06:34
nsadminbsd does stand for berkeley standard DISTribution...06:34
ActionParsnipnsadmin: how do you mean "flavour of xdm"? xdm is xdm06:35
ubernerdnsadmin umm... no its berkeley schools distribution06:35
crackerjackzi thought bsd standed for berkley software distribution06:35

godlywhizkensee you guys are all from different sub groups06:35

ubernerdI'm just a video gamer06:35
nsadminbut there's other things that do xdmcp06:35
nsadmingdm, kdm, wdm, foodm06:36
ActionParsnipgodlywhizken: everyone is. Its the human condition06:36
ubernerdgdm is best :D06:36
aukI used to be a video gamer. Then yo uget annoyed that idiots put a virus on your computer, so you switch to linux to scare them away ._.06:36
stephenmartyr<ubernerd>ok but under each kernel at the grub there is "ubuntu generic(recovery mode)under every generuc kernel06:36
godlywhizken:) yes it is06:36
aukGdm, what the heck is that? O_O06:36
wslayerwhat is xdmcp?06:36
stephenmartyr<ubernerd>ill leave you alone soon,just a few more questions06:36
ubernerdstephenmartyr recovery mode won't help you in this case06:36
godlywhizkenisn't it the loader/login screen for gnome?06:37
ActionParsnipnsadmin: sure but those aren't flavours of xdm, gdm is its own ap06:37
stephenmartyrok06:37
stephenmartyrso how do i erase everything?06:37
ubernerdi dunno06:37
ActionParsnipLightdm rocks all my systems :-)06:37
nsadminthat's fine, we can use any semantics you want. which do you recommend for unity?06:37
godlywhizkengdm = gnome display manager -- a login screen06:37
ubernerdoh... which reminds me... i haven't made a commit to svn in like 2 or 3 weeks06:38
wslayeris xfce supported by Ubuntu?06:38
ubernerdwslayer Yes, thats why they call it xubuntu06:38

stephenmartyr<ubernerd>you dont know how i reboot with a new saystem,then how do you know i need to?06:39
ActionParsnipnsadmin: its not semantics at all. Its a different application altogether. I'd use gdm as it's default but one doesn't have any advantages over the other06:39

ubernerdstephenmartyr bad sectors are something that can only be coped with via a repartitioning06:39
updated????06:39
ubernerdI said I dunno because I need sleep06:39
godlywhizkeni'm not sure if it's supported directly by ubuntu but i think some guys took it and put xfce on it and called it xubuntu06:39
nsadminsemantics are best used to understand communication06:39
updatedon ubuntu06:39
ubernerdupdated: wireshark06:40

ubottuwslayer: Packages in Ubuntu may not be the latest. Ubuntu aims for stability, so "latest" may not be a good idea. Post-release updates are only considered if they are fixes for security vulnerabilities, high impact bug fixes, or unintrusive bug fixes with substantial benefit.

nsadminok, thanks for the help/tips... I'll reboot into ubuntu in awhile06:57
goddardActionParsnip:  i was going to attempt to manually install06:58

dr_willisnmvictor:  its just a modem command string06:58
ActionParsnipgoddard: run:  file /path/to/thing   obviously change the file to the actual file. Then run uname -m    i686 = 32bit   x86_64 = 64bit06:59

nmvictorThe javax.comm api can communicate with serial and parallel ports on my computer. Is their a way i can get the serial port to which my USB port map onto?07:01

TA5KHi, I'm trying to get my GLX libs back, but even reinstalling the packages don't show libGLXcore in /usr/libs/ What did I wrong?08:08
FlannelTA5K: What's the output of `dpkg -S /usr/libs/libGLXcore`08:08
theadminFlannel: ain't it dpkg-query -S?08:09
GirlyGirl_TA5K: Produce out put for "pkg -S /usr/libs/libGLXcore"08:09
GirlyGirl_sorry dpkg08:09
TA5KGirlyGirl_: no path found matching pattern /usr/libs/libGLXcore.08:09
HyperbyteGirlyGirl_, fancontrol has options to restore fan speed to 100% on exit08:09
GirlyGirl_Hyperbyte: So it can be changed from that how?08:10
HyperbyteGirlyGirl_, it has that to make sure it doesn't leave the fan sitting at 10%.  I'd say deinstall fan control, and use the fan speed control from your BIOS, if you have any.08:10
Flanneltheadmin: dpkg is sort of a catchall for a number of dpkg-* programs08:10
HyperbyteGirlyGirl_, not sure how, I used fan control once, then removed it for exactly this reason. :-)08:10
theadminFlannel: I think dpkg-query can search not-installed packages too though?08:10
GirlyGirl_Hyperbyte: No such think its a laptop bios08:10
theadminFlannel: Actually no, that's stupid to think08:11
Flanneltheadmin: That's apt-file08:11
Flanneltheadmin: dpkg knows nothing about repositories :)08:11
TA5KIs there an howto for reinstalling the default video drivers in Ubuntu 11.04 (clean reinstall)?08:11
HyperbyteGirlyGirl_, a laptop without fan control in the bios?  I'd check with your manufacturer to read the manual to make sure.  Probably you can enable some option to scale the processor down when you don't need it.  Performance vs. quiet.08:12

rumbaI've followed the instructions from this site https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RcLocalHowto and in my /etc/init.d/local file I put date >>/a/file and echo $* >>/a/file but after a reboot all I see is one timestamp and the parameter "stop". Shouldn't my file be executed at startup? I see S80local in rc{2,3,4,5}.d so why doesn't my script execute at boot time?08:19
dr_willisrumba:  its /etc/rc.local you edit08:20
TA5KI don't get why additional driver don't writes the GLXcore08:20
dr_willisand be sure  commands are above the exit 0 line rumba08:21
Hyperbytedr_willis, then I guess that wiki page needs fixing.08:21
rumbadr_willis: So I should create a file /etc/rc.local ?08:22

dr_willisand the /etc/init.d/whatever file should of been a script i imagine. with a lot of stuff in it08:23

sharensadmin: and btw swap should also be encrypted :)09:07

theadminSpikehead777: e.g. phones, 3g modems, ...09:08
Spikehead777I see.09:08
nsadminI don't necessarily mind getting away with stuff... but, I'm wanting to try ubuntu. I installed it in kind of a weird way, that stopped at several points, and didn't allow for a full moreorless automated thing. I might throw it away and reinstall if I can figure how to get it to run to completion09:08
nsadminshare: you like the idea of being so slow you have to get out and push? :)09:09
Spikehead777Hmm... I didn't have to do anything before when I had my old USB727.09:09
nsadminI guess one school of thought holds that's what cpu and ram is for09:10
Spikehead777I will say that using "partition" was a bad choice of words, though I wanted to make clear that I'm currently on the Internet with the same modem that I want to connect on Ubuntu with.09:11
Spikehead777So, I'll give that command a try and if it doesn't work, then I'll be back in about 10-15 minutes.09:11
theadminSpikehead777: There is no command as such. Google around.09:12

ubottusudo is a command to run command-line programs with superuser privileges ("root") (also see !cli). Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo for more information. For graphical applications see !gksu (GNOME, Xfce), or !kdesudo (KDE). If you're unable to execute commands with sudo see: http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/fixsudo09:31
nsadminoh, didn't notice that, good point09:31
nsadminpid files are supposed to go in /var/run09:31
Lion-O(JGJones_) bopm.pid is for storing the process ID of the running BOPM09:31

shishiri want to make my usb drive bootable  how can i do it from ubuntu plx help i am new at ubuntu10:09
DistroJockeynsadmin: Installing Ubuntu on an 8GB drive using the auto / and /home option fails for instance (with no errors)10:09
nsadminI could put /boot on the 1g and put / in the volume group10:09
DistroJockeynsadmin: that's probably the better way to go10:09
nsadminI pretty much guessed for this install10:10
=== jrib is now known as Guest13824
nsadminlet's see how it's doing10:10
DistroJockeynsadmin: Pretty sure the reason your menus are mostly empty is because you ran out of space to install them10:11
nsadminit's finished downloading the pkgs10:11
nsadminno, that's not the reason10:11
DistroJockeynsadmin: the cached downloads will be in the /var partition, but no room in / to install them10:11
nsadminthis is a fairly special case10:11
nsadminwell let's see, it's done, so let's see where we;re at10:12
nsadminso, / has about .73g, /var has 3.something10:13
nsadminthis is after downloading the packages and before installing them10:14
DistroJockeynsadmin: so far so good :)10:14
nsadminI'll have it install them now10:15
nsadminit's going10:15
nsadminI guess it's going to check hardware at some point in the install?10:17
dessshi, could anyone help me to setup dual monitors? my 2nd monitor is properly plugged inn but gnome-display-properties seems not to recognize it10:17
theadmindesss: Does it show up if you run "xrandr" in terminal?10:17
niklasfihi, my user does not show up on the logon screen. i guess this has to do with me changing the uid to 500 since i had that in fedora. is there a file i can add my name to?10:18
DistroJockeynsadmin: Don't think so10:18
theadminniklasfi: I suggest you don't change your UIDs... But yeah, there should be some setup tool for GDM allowing to configure that.10:18
dessstheadmin: how can I find out? it shows "*+" only at one monitor\10:18
theadminniklasfi: iirc it was called "gdm2-setup"10:19
dessstheadmin: Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 1280 x 1024, maximum 4096 x 409610:19
desssVGA2 connected 1280x1024+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 340mm x 270mm10:19
theadmindesss: Okay, so seriously only one screen found, hm10:20
theadmindesss: I dunno then xD Not really into hardware10:20
dessstheadmin: well strange thing is hapenning: when i logout/login (restart X I guess), the 2nd screen "blinks" and an Ubuntu boot screen appears - it stays there till I turn the PC off, so somehow Ubuntu has to "see" the 2nd monitor10:21
DistroJockeydesss: If you installed Nvidia or Ati drivers, there is usually a config utility under System - Preferences10:22
desssDistroJockey: there is no such utility, the next problem is that I use internal video card (Intel) and extern video card (nVidia) - both only have 1 VGA output, so I have to use both of them at the same time10:22

tryggvibCan anybody explain to me the difference between /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist and /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf (and the other /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-*.conf)?10:35
ldrMark-sketching, so: if you do setkeycodes 6b 224 and setkeycodes 66 22510:35
ldrMark-sketching, you should be able to turn brightnes down with rotate and up with toolbox10:35
Mark-sketchingldr: ooh cheers, I'll try10:36
Laserstryggvib: I'm guessing that blacklist is old and you should be using blacklist.conf instead.10:36
ldrMark-sketching, http://www.thinkwiki.org/wiki/Tablet_Hardware_Buttons here you can find you hexadecimal codes for diffrent buttons mapping to 225 always is brightness up to 224 is down10:36
tryggvibLasers: thanks, so it's a legacy thing :)10:37
nsadmindone.10:37
Mark-sketchingldr: Right. Here goes :)10:37
Laserstryggvib: Sure. New standards, I suppose. Also, the other *conf thing? It's just their own lines -- Makes it easy to read (and it looks nice). I think.10:38
ldrthe same system you can use to map it to the buttons of your bluetooth keyboard as well10:38
tryggvibLasers: ok, thanks10:38
niklasfihey! it works. added "[greeter]\nInclude=username\n" to /etc/gdm/custom.conf10:38

jane1ubuntu is debian?10:50
ldrjane1, no  but it uses debians packet management system10:50
jane1ldr why centos is considered a better server than ubuntu?10:51
ldrjane1, no idea maybe software more stable10:52
ldrjane1, debian is considered good cause the software is very well tested which means its relativly old of course10:52
jane1ldr whats your recomendation10:52
jane1for a server os.10:52
ldrjane1, if you dont want to got through the trouble of building your own linux use debian10:52

ldrjane1, hey jane i recommended debian cause i dont think a server needs or should run the most recent packages10:54
ldrjane1, not ubuntu10:54
szaljane1: this is an Ubuntu support channel; comparison talk is in #ubuntu-offtopic10:54
ldrMark-sketching, nice10:54
jane1ldr why not ubuntu. and which one then10:54
ldrMark-sketching, sounds like x201 then try using the map of the x201 then10:54
jane1szal ok10:54
Mark-sketchingldr: the buttons aren't next to eachother, but short of knowing the codes for each key, I can live with that; both commands on the face of the tablet. Result! thanks.10:55
ldrjane1, use the debian stable release, why not ubuntu i already said ubuntu takes new software version way faster in the rpos than debian10:55

ubottuiszak: VNC is a protocol for remote desktop. https://help.ubuntu.com/community/VNCOverSSH describes how to use it securely.  It works best over fast connections, otherwise look at !FreeNX11:00
ldrtheadmin, i deinstalled sudo , nearly the first thing i did after installing ubuntu11:00
Ristovskihello If I use Live CD will something screw up?11:00
ThinkT510ldr: what? why?11:00
Lasersldr: Just use aliases + turn off password using visudo.11:01
Lasersldr: Or "sudo -i" and never log out.11:01
theadminldr: So you just use su?11:01
ThinkT510Ristovski: don't worry the livecd won't touch your harddrive unless you tell it to (by trying to install)11:01
ldrldr, maybe just a matter of taste but i prefer su to normal root konsole11:01

RistovskiThinkT510 : can I install small version of ubuntu along with my Windows?11:02
ThinkT510Ristovski: sure11:02
ThinkT510!mini | Ristovski11:02
ubottuRistovski: The Minimal CD image is very small in size, and it downloads most packages from the Internet during installation, allowing you to select only those you want (the installer is like the one on the !Alternate CD). See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/MinimalCD11:02
Mark-sketchingldr, so to sum up, if I make a file called rc.local and put the commands in there it'll run at startup?11:02
Ristovskiwont it screw up?11:02
ldrMark-sketching, no the file /etc/rc.local already exists11:02
ThinkT510Ristovski: why would it?11:03
ldrMark-sketching, their you put the two commands in11:03
ldrrc.local runs intself at startup11:03

ThinkT510DistroJockey: i can't stand wubi and i wouldn't recommend it to others11:04

lotuspsychjecan a truecrypted folder be cracked/readed if you remove the pyshical harddrive?11:04
ThinkT510Ristovski: if you are nervous about it, you could always try installing in a vm (virtualbox)11:05
RistovskiThinkT510 : ok So I download the iso burn it , put it in the cd rom , reboot and get in linux right? Now How do I connect to wifi?11:05
ldrMark-sketching, you can use rc.local for a lot of stuff i use it for exmaple to rfkill bluetooth and wwan at every boot cause i didnt found a more elegant solution11:05
suboneRunning natty off usb drive boots to blank screen. Any help?11:06
ThinkT510Ristovski: there should be an applet (depending on what desktop environment you are in) that will let you choose the wireless network11:06
Mark-sketchingldr: I see, that is neat, thanks for the tip. I'm going to reboot and test.11:06
glebihanMark-sketching, in order for the rc.local file to be executed, don't forget to make it executable11:06
ldrMark-sketching, no need would be to write a upstart script for this stuff ;)11:06
ldri mean neat would be....11:07
ThinkT510Ristovski: make sure to change the boot order in the bios so that it boots the cd before the harddrive too11:07
RistovskiI want to install in VM11:07
RistovskiOnly if it is safe though11:07
fmaurolotuspsychje: no11:07
ThinkT510Ristovski: yeah, thats even easier11:07
RistovskiI dont wanna screw up my PC11:07
RistovskiThinkT510 : Wont it lagg?11:08
ThinkT510Ristovski: installing it in a vm is perfectly safe11:08
Ristovskiwill it lagg?11:08
lotuspsychjefmauro: even when using the disk on external hd case or something?11:08
RistovskiOr like freeze?11:08
ThinkT510Ristovski: depends on your hardware and how you set up your vm11:08
VxQeRistovski, not if your PC is modern.11:08
Ristovskiwell my PC specs are : 4gb RAm , Amd Athlon II m320 x64 , 500GB hdd11:09
ThinkT510Ristovski: that is plenty powerful enough11:09
fmaurolotuspsychje: if you created a truecrypt folder and secured it with a sufficiently secure password, haven't stored the password anywhere on the disk, it is virtually impossible to decrypt that folder. no matter where you open it11:09
tryggvibcan anybody point me to a place where I can see why "lshw -C network" marks *-network:1 as DISABLED?11:10
ThinkT510Ristovski: you may need to check if the vm settings for your processor are activated in the bios though11:10
Mark-sketchingldr: in the file it says "# In order to enable or disable this script just change the execution bits" Do I need to change something to make it active?11:10
lotuspsychjefmauro: would the folder be visible on external hd case saying its content is unreadable?11:10
RistovskiI hate going in the BIOS11:10
Ristovskilast time I was there I screwed my PC11:10
DistroJockeyRistovski: I give my Linux VM's 768MB of RAM and turn on 3D acceleration. They run fine on a 4GB RAM host.11:10
DerekKeyDid you have a solution to mount USB disk secure with Windows 7 bitlocker partition?11:10
DistroJockeyRistovski: No need to go into BIOS11:11
fmaurolotuspsychje: it depends on how you created the truecrypt volume: did you make a partition, did you just create a truecrypt file?11:11
ThinkT510Ristovski: you might already have it activated anyway, but you won't be able to tell untill you run the vm11:11
ldrMark-sketching, if you dont already yes11:11
glebihanMark-sketching, as I told you, the file needs to be executable11:11
ldrMark-sketching, make it executable chmod +x /etc/rc.local11:11
lotuspsychjefmauro: truecrypt partition11:11
DistroJockeyRistovski, ThinkT510: Ohh, yeah, those settings are nice :)11:12
Mark-sketchingglebihan: Make it executable? Oo-er, it's not that by default? How?11:12

sbarcteamjrib, for some reason our net admin don't allow ssh keys.11:27

hx_Hello, I've got an Asus P53E and I installed Ubuntu 11.04, the problem i have is that my touchpad is recognized as a "PS/2 Logitech Wheel Mouse" and therefore the multitouch functionality doesn't work. I found out that this is could be a bug in the Kernel, so I installed the newest one (3.0 rc7) but still the problem is the same.. Is there a patch for this issue?13:16

ThinkT510if you want to be able to hibernate/suspend it is recommended to have about 1.5 times size of ram13:33

=== sburjan_ is now known as sburjan`
wolsshare: OOM killer (out of memory killer) hits. basically the process trying to allocate more memory gets forcibly terminated13:39
sipiorwols: memory allocations made by processes at initialisation. the reservation is typically quite a bit larger than what the process expects to allocate, and so you get sections of RAM which can't be recycled (they are still reserved), but aren't being used by the process that requested them.13:40
sw0rdfishhmmmm I see, its a openvz ubuntu 10.04 VPS....don't think it might work13:40
sharewols: i'll just use 1gb just in case13:40
=== HarryHaaren|lunc is now known as HarryHaaren
sipiorwols: linux memory allocation is fairly aggressive :-)13:40
wolssipior: makes no sense. there is no need to put anything on disk (which means writing which is slow) when a page is not dirty13:41
pratzfmauro: do you know python ??13:41
wolssipior: and if you don't put it on disk then there is no need for the swap13:41
ghostnik11thinkt510: its not me, its a bunch of text files someone sent me for studying tips and practice exams for a exam i will be taking in september and i am just appalled that microsoft docx file standard is the reason why the text files come up the way they do, from what you say its not libre office's fault its microsofts fault, so libre office does its job and microsoft doesn't b/c they want to be difficult13:41
sipiorwols: if you have swap, those reservations are swapped directly. there's no performance hit, because nothing is actually being written to disk. the reservations do need to exist.13:41
gulzar?13:41
sharehow much space for boot?13:41
evantonsw0rdfish: basically, having hard limits like that gives you white hair as soon as you hit the limit. An alternative is just to watch for data growth, set some notification triggers so you could deal with the problem when it appears13:41
pratzfmauro: this is what i do in my code http://paste.ubuntu.com/656396/13:42
sw0rdfishnice13:42
wolssipior: basically, if I malloc 2GB then the kernel should do some bookeeping but shouldn't give me a single byte. only when I calloc 2GB (or otherwise wirte to my allocated pages), only then it should matter for the VM and swap13:42
sw0rdfishevanton, yeah a notification trigger sounds good13:42

maiconpwhen I run nautilus smb://my_IP_Server appear an messange about haven't been connected14:03
sipiorwols: his (the commenter's) point is that the VM subsystem *must* guarantee that the space exists, whether or not that's a good idea. writing those allocations to swap keeps them from wasting your ram. they can't be used for cache, because they are still tied up by the process that reserved them.14:03

mneptokghostnik11: actually, in the hard sciences, TeX is the preferred markup for research papers.14:06
wolssipior: no. allocation is never commit. linux _always_ overcommits cause it's the sensible thing to do. with swap, the overcommit just happens later, that is all. but performance wise there is no difference. The kernel doesn't have to guarantee anything. if it would guarantee, there would be no OOM killer needed. but it's obviously there14:06

ThinkT510UbuntuGNULinux: the factoid is telling you to discuss it in #ubuntu+114:08
wolssipior: the only stuff you could put into swap is the binaries' "dead ends". code that is never ever used or data that is never accessed. you can swap that out and make room for more useful cache. that's about it. but with big memory sizes, this is not really needed anymore since the amount is so small. at least in linux where we have proper systemwide shared libs, unlike windows...14:08

ghostnik11mneptok, okay thats for letting me know, if i decide to do any personal research on my own then i will use Tex, but don't understand why professors, doctors and other individuals don't just use odt or simple open source when it comes to there works, feel they can just tell student download libre office for free and use that, making everything one standard across all disciplinary, thinkt510: yeah i figured he and a lot of oth14:10
ghostnik11ers still used .doc as standard, as thats what i use when i have to send some one a text, i use .doc and not docx14:10
sipiorwols: yes, i said that badly. the kernel makes no guarantees, and so having plentiful swap space is a way of ensuring *reliability* in the face of an unpredictable environment. that's why we need swap.14:10

sipiorwols: and as i said earlier, trading off cheap hard drive space for expansive ram is not very clever.14:10
SsnPici, so that still means flash will take 200+mb anyway right?14:11
wolssipior: I wouldn't say "need" :P  but these are the differences in approach I guess :)14:11
PiciSsn: 200+mb seems exceptionally big.14:11
UbuntuGNULinuxszal: That's not my experience, we'll have to agree to disagree14:11
maiconpwhere is the  bookmarks?14:11

Incarus6UbuntuGNULinux, Unity is the default desktop of Ubuntu. The next Ubuntu release will not ship gnome, I think Gubuntu will.14:12
SsnPici, that's why i feel weird, but I've tried twice before, it did download 60mb worth of something at least14:12
wolssipior: it all depends on workload. having seen how my systems never used swap, I just got pissed at all the wasted space and eliminated it. only times I had OOM killer hit was when e.g. my apache (or mysql) had some runaway memory leak. never in normal operation14:12
PiciSsn: I have a fast connection, so it is possible it downloaded something larger than what I thought.14:12
wolssipior: if I did more java dev for example I might have kept swap around. those java IDEs are just hogs for memory14:13
ghostnik11mneptok: meant to say thanks not thats, sorry about that14:14

VervaI'm trying to set up a server for minecraft and I'm trying to get an init script set up. I've got it in init.d and rc.d has been updated. the next thing i need to do is mound a ramdisk. I have no idea how to do this.14:17

ubottuUbuntu, like any other Linux distribution, has firewall capabilities built-in. The firewall is managed using the 'ufw' command - see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UFW | An alternative to ufw is the 'iptables' command - See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/IptablesHowTo | GUI frontends such as Gufw (GNOME) and Guarddog (KDE Lucid and Maverick) also exist.14:18
lardmantalking of the wonders of 64bit, I installed a 32bit package before upgrading to Natty, now I'm trying to install a newer 64bit version, and apt-get remove doesn't recognise the 32bit package as installed, but apt-get install complains that it is installed. Any ideas?14:18
Ssnoh, right, so it's the 32bit dependency that's taking up all the space, thanks all14:18
Ssnone more thing, flash does have a 64bit beta version now, will that one be better for a 64bit system or I just shouldn't bother14:20

Guest18495Can any body help me14:24

GirlyGirlGuest18495: Refer to apple support, assuming your "intel machine" is an intel mac14:30

m1d4swill it stay ?14:34
dcgb0ot: no problem. partimage should do everything you need. I have used it many times in the past.14:34
ikoniam1d4s: if that is on a seperate partition as the OS, no problem14:34
Saikiceroot: ya there?14:34
dcgb0ot: just remember that it literally is cloneing the harddrive, so any "sensitive" data eg: "stored passwords" will be cloned too.14:35
b0otdcg thanks14:35
m1d4sikonia: its on the same partition don`t have it separately, thats what i`m asking about will it format the partition or just change all of system data and leave my personal data14:36
norroIncarus6: unfortunately that didn`t help. but thanks anyway14:36
ikoniam1d4s: back it up then14:36
dcgb0ot: one other thing. I would make sure that fstab uses UUID's instead of "/dev/sda" type references as different machines *may* assign drives differently14:36
m1d4sikonia: to much work and don`t have space14:36
Incarus6norro, try as root "echo 0 > /proc/sys/kernel/yama/ptrace_scope"14:36
ikoniam1d4s: then you can't do anything about it14:36
w00Incarus6, yeah my bad, forgot to mention it's remote so safe would mean not to get left out, beside the usual "don't hose my system" :)14:37
m1d4sikonia: if it would be the same os then the files would stay ?14:37
ikoniam1d4s: no, as the file system would still get formatted14:38

odie5533ThinkT510: Yes. But I want another too14:50
dcgSaik: no, there are ways to leave the connection dormant, until some other event occurs. so you would need to be monitoring constantly, and could miss a connection that only exists for a second or so. this brief connection could take you back to square one14:50

Piciodie5533, ThinkT510: Ubuntu doesn't use a wheel group.  We use 'admin'14:52

ThinkT510Pici: ahh, sorry, thats my arch knowledge kcking in14:53
Incarus6norro, or try running gdb as root?14:53
odie5533Pici: I saw group 'adm', but trying 'admin' did not work.14:53
dcgSaik: yes even if all ports are closed :(14:53
Saikdcg, w00: I'll just shut up now14:53
Piciodie5533: adm is for logfile stuff. Your user should be in the admin group. If not, then take a look at the contents of /etc/sudoers (use visudo)14:53
norroIncarus6: also fails :/ i try asking the gdb guys. but thanks again for your help14:53
dcgPici: odie5533: no for just allowing a user to use sudo it is the "sudo" group. look at /etc/sudoers14:54
odie5533dch: Thanks, yeah, adding my user to group sudo was a bad idea xD14:54
Incarus6norro, I can't help you with that, I'm never using gdb. But for additional information see: https://lists.ubuntu.com/archives/ubuntu-devel/2010-June/030940.html https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DesktopTeam/Specs/PolicyKitIntegration14:54
Picidcg: No, not in Ubuntu by default. Its the 'admin' group.14:55
ikoniadcg: keep in mind that will give access to ALL(ALL)14:55
dcgPici: if you look at the sudoers file the default is "sudo" admin will potentially allow other privlidges (based on file permissions etc)14:56
Picidcg: I stand corrected.14:56
dcgikonia: yes that is correct. by default anyone in group sudo will have full root access. for anyother level of restriction, you would need to setup a user based restriction in sudoers14:57
ikoniadcg: that's fine, just checking you knew it would be a wide sudo rule set14:57

dcgodie5533: please take note of what ikonia and myself have just said.14:58
evantonalso, don't you forget that whole bunch of tiling window managers14:58
dcgodie5533: you need to add the user to the sudo group but likely will want to "restrict" their use of sudo by adding additional rules to /etc/sudoers14:59
odie5533dcg: I want it to have the same level as my own account14:59
odie5533It's for my brother. I trust him :)14:59
dcgodie5533: btw. don't forget to use visudo, or simliar to edit /etc/sudoers as a mistake using other methods can prevent sudo from working at all :(15:00
dcgodie5533: in that case all you need to do is add him to the sudo group.15:00
odie5533dcg: you mean the admin group?15:00
odie5533I used visudo, but did not make any edits since I did not want any different restrictions.15:00
sudiptahow to set up LAN interface in ubuntu 11.04?15:01
dcgno, if you want him to have sudo access then add him to the sudo group. admin group has no effect on sudo. but can alter other things15:01
dcgodie5533: so maybe you would want to add him to admin and sudo.15:01
amineexit15:02
odie5533dcg: hmm, adding to admin seems to have done the trick though.15:02
dcgsudipta: it should be as simple as plug in the cable and it works. if not you may need to click on the detwork icon (near the clock. look for tooltips) and do some manual config15:02
dcgodie5533: that is strange. for a default sudo config admin should make no difference, unless there is something in the pam config that changes that?15:03
sudiptadcg::::about the manual configuration ,is there any manual available on net15:03
sudipta?15:03
odie5533dcg: The user can use sudo being in the admin group.15:04
dcgodie5533: sorry, just reread the sudoers file, and currently the admin group is also configured to be the same as sudo group15:04
odie5533dcg: Adding a user to sudo would be a bad idea I think.15:05
odie5533like enabling the root account.15:05
dcgodie5533: I believe that this is a fairly recent addition, though I can't be to sure.15:05
dcgodie5533: actually no, it is only used (from what I can remember when I investigated some time ago) as a group for allowing a user to use sudo.15:06
Sancasi cant start my gdm :(15:06
dcgodie5533: conversely the admin group was used to allow various files to be accessed/modified as well as (currently) giving sudo access15:07

Sancaswhat can i do?15:07
dcgsudipta: I am not sure if there is any manual for 11.04 net config. but ubuntu.com would be  agood place to look.15:07
dcgsudipta: generally you should be able to muddle your way through if you have a basic knowledge of network setup. it is fairly straight forward15:08
dcgSancas: what video card are you using, and what is coming up on your screen?15:09
Sancasim have ati hd radeon 575015:09

Polahgamingdroid: nginx and Apache? Why would you use two webservers?16:46
xanguaS4nD3r: reset the panel¿16:46
gamingdroidGirlyGirl: ohhh... I didn't know that. I only have 512MB RAM for now16:47
S4nD3rno no16:47
S4nD3rIt was solved16:47
gamingdroidPolah: the reason is in django generally you run one server to handle all the dynamic stuff and another to handle static content.16:47
PolahGirlyGirl: Really?16:47
gamingdroidPolah: * webserver16:47
PiciGirlyGirl: I think we'd all like to see some documentation regarding your last comment.16:47
evantonPolah: yes, and 64 bit apps use more RAM16:48
evanton64 bit pointers are longer, that adds some16:48
Picigamingdroid: 64bits is the default architecture provided by Ubuntu for server installs. I've not seen any issues with small amounts of RAM causing issues.16:48
gamingdroidit seems reasonable, if each memory address takes up 64bit instead of 32bit it seems reasonable....16:48
evantongamingdroid: exactly16:48
Polahgamingdroid: That seems strange. Could be beneficial, though16:48
GirlyGirlPolah: Well anything 64 has more requirements on ram, see win7 for exaple 32 bit asks 1 gig and 64 2 gig, on servers doing database work I have experienced much higher memory consumsion on 64 bit, but 64 bit also supports more ram16:48
mediaworkhi16:48
mediaworkanyone know of a command line utility for searching strings inside ms word documents?16:49
PiciGirlyGirl: Linux is not Windows16:49
gamingdroidPolah: it's because dynamic pages requires more heavy webserver processes, while static content is just a straight read from disk. sort of makes sense.16:49

gnokhello. can anyone see this message?16:49
Picigamingdroid: Have you considered asking in #linode on OFTC?16:50
Picignok: yes16:50
GirlyGirlPici: Linux too uses higher mem on 64 bit, the dbms servers I refered to were Ubuntu server16:50
ikoniagnok: sure16:50
gnoki'm on a slow internet connection so unsure if it's reaching the channel.16:50
gamingdroidPici: I figured you guys are ubuntu specific, so no16:50
Polahgamingdroid: It would allow processing of dynamic and static content simultaneously from each process over multiple processing cores but you'd have to take into consideration communication between both processes.16:50
gnokPici: ikonia thanks :).16:50
Tom^GirlyGirl PAE is never a choice for any sort of computer if you got 1gb of ram or more16:51
Tom^GirlyGirl http://blog.linuxolution.org/archives/11716:51
gamingdroidPolah: nope, no intercommunication necessary. it is asking for a completely independent resource alas index.php and then something.jpg16:51
gamingdroidPolah: or am I misunderstanding16:51
sipiorTom^: i don't believe GirlyGirl was suggesting it was.16:52
PiciTom^: Not all computers can run 64 bits.16:52
gamingdroidPici: not to question you, but out of curiosity where did you find out that 64-bit is standard for servers? it makes sense though.16:52
gnokI just installed ubuntu and grub doesn't detect windows. any suggestions on how I could boot into windows?16:52
GirlyGirlOn 64 bit howerver processing speed is better, so go for 64 if you have enough ram16:52
Tom^Pici it costs about 100$ to get a dualcore  intel or amd with motherboard and ram that can handle it16:52
Polahgamingdroid: Of course there's communication between the two processes. The webserver sending the content, lets say Apache, would need to offload the dynamic parts for processing to nginx, then nginx would need to send the data back to Apache to be served to the client.16:52
JayProfirst time setting up raid here... i have two 1TB sata harddrives installed. i went into the bios and selected RAID as the configuration. when i rebooted, i pressed control-s to take me to the raid utility. i set up both harddrives to say raid 1, copied over contents of disk 1 to disk 2 (which should have been nothing), then rebooted to ubuntu installation. however, i was expecting see 1 harddrive, but ubuntu sees two. how do i fix this?16:53
Picigamingdroid: I'm just referring to what http://www.ubuntu.com/download/server/download offers16:53
PolahTom^: But that doesn't mean every system owner has or will spend $100 to get the hardware required to run 64-bit.16:53
Tom^Polah but they have to get over 4gb ram?16:53
PolahTom^: If they have <4GB then they might not. Anyone that has >4GB and has a 32-bit system I will agree is somewhat foolish.16:54
evantonmediawork: you could try antiword, but I don't know if it supports the newest doc formats16:54
JayProanyone? hrmm...16:54
gamingdroidPolah: The way it works is the browser requests www.domain.com, apache responds with a dynamically generated html file. the browser parses it, request the images, css files (all those are static)... unless you are talking about when an incoming request, how do you know which webserver it goes to?16:55
newPupevanton: I'm all signed up now, thanks.  And thank the other user, I don't recall their name.16:56
Polahgamingdroid: A client will request say a login form that uses Python for it's backend. Apache can serve the CSS and HTML itself to generate the form, but when the client then fills it out and sends it off and you have a second webserver for handling dynamic content, Apache would receive the client's data, send it to nginx which would then process that data and compare it to the data in a database. If it's correct then nginx will say it's oka16:57
Polahy, generate a login token and suchlike, pass that back to Apache which will then send that back to the client16:57

gnokI just installed ubuntu and grub doesn't detect windows. any suggestions on how I could boot into windows?16:58
Polahgnok: Run grub-update16:59
gamingdroidPolah: when a request is for a login form, then the actual form page is generated by apache/modwsgi, but the css/images are requested (possibly through a different domain) are handled by nginx16:59
REK_007gnok, repair the windows bootloader using windows disk and then use easybcd to setup linux option. if thwat Polah said fails :)16:59
shareguys17:00
gamingdroidPolah: when the credentials is sent, apache processes the request, a success webpage is then presented to the user, but the images and css is still served by nginx17:00

REK_007gnok, yes.17:00
Polahgnok: You could try reinstalling GRUB entirely17:01
shareHelp.17:01
REK_007gnok, since grub 2 is easier to identify hence i specified that method . after you select linux on windows boot loader you will be directed to GRUB . you can choose to skip it by changing settings on ubuntu17:01
Polahshare: The keyboard layout you choose when intalling Ubuntu is for the install, not the LiveCD.17:01
gnokPolah: the command to install grub is "grub-install /dev/sda" right? the partition shouldn't be specified right?17:02
GirlyGirlgnok: There are two ways, install grub to device or to partition17:03
gnokREK_007: the windows bootloader is an option but I'd still like to use grub :). is that possible?17:03

ubottuwebmin is no longer supported in Debian and Ubuntu. It is not compatible with the way that Ubuntu packages handle configuration files, and is likely to cause unexpected issues with your system.17:03

Polahgnok: grub-install --root-directory=/boot /dev/sdX, change /boot to whatever the directory you want the files to go to, it's /boot by default and set sdX to whatever device you want to install GRUB to.##17:03
