anadonhey, what's the old grub2 reinstall after windows link?00:29
ubottuGRUB2 is the default Ubuntu boot manager since 9.10 (Karmic). Lost GRUB after installing Windows?

linuxfreakerI am here08:27
IdleOneallandee linuxfreaker thank you for moving here in the proper channel :)08:27
linuxfreakerGuys..I need help on Ubuntu 11.10 alpha with gcc08:27
IdleOnemuch appreciated08:27
linuxfreakerI installed gcc through apt-get install gcc and it got installed successfully08:28
allandeelinuxfreaker: so, the PATH environment variable -- it points among other things to /usr/bin for sure?08:28
allandee 08:28
allandeeand ls -l /usr/bin/gcc says?08:28
linuxfreakerBut when i am running /usr/bin/gcc it threw the error root@km-vmqa-dhcp184:~/vmware-tools-distrib# gcc gcc: fatal error: no input files compilation terminated.08:28
linuxfreakerroot@km-vmqa-dhcp184:~/vmware-tools-distrib# ls -l /usr/bin/gcc lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 7 2011-07-20 03:00 /usr/bin/gcc -> gcc-4.608:28
allandeethat                            is expected though, that only means that gcc is in fact in /usr/bin/gcc -- and that you didn't provide any input files08:29
linuxfreakermeans ?08:29
allandeehow to you run the script?08:29
allandeethe vmware script?08:30
linuxfreakerBut why re-installing gcc even dint work for /usr/bin/gcc08:30
linuxfreakerI think we shud first fix this08:30
linuxfreakerVmware -tools script comes ater08:30
allandee /usr/bin/gcc is there and working as expected for now08:30
linuxfreakerWhy /usr/bin/gcc threw the error08:30
allandeebecause you didn'08:31
allandeet provide input files ;)08:31
linuxfreakerohh..u mean the command needs input files08:31
allandeehow do you run the script?08:31
linuxfreakerohk fine08:31
linuxfreakerLet me tell u about vmware-tools then08:31
linuxfreakerAs you see http://pastebin.com/ChgLZC4M08:31
linuxfreakergenerally vmware-tools on Ubuntu needs compilations08:32
linuxfreakerand need gcc and kernel-header files08:32
allandeeI have comments to address that, but first:08:34
allandeethe last line in that pastebin is this:08:34
allandeeEnter the path to the kernel header files for the 3.0-3-server kernel? /lib64/modules/3.0-3-server/build/kernel08:34
linuxfreakerAllandee: Here is the complete Installing VMware Tools.  In which directory do you want to install the binary files? [/usr/bin]  What is the directory that contains the init directories (rc0.d/ to rc6.d/)? [/etc]  What is the directory that contains the init scripts? [/etc/init.d]  In which directory do you want to install the daemon files? [/usr/sbin]  In which directory do you want to install the library files? [/usr/lib/v08:38
linuxfreakerHere is the new pastebin : http://pastebin.com/ZAfpagF108:38
allandee checking08:39
allandeejust to make sure "The path "/lib64/modules/3.0-3-server/build/kernel" is not a valid path to the08:40
allandee3.0-3-server kernel headers." is the last line you see?08:40
linuxfreakerDo u want more lines?08:41
linuxfreakerAll it says after the step is WARNING: This program cannot compile any modules for the following reason(s)...  - This program could not find a valid path to the gcc binary.  Please ensure that the gcc binary is installed on this sytem.  - This program could not find a valid path to the kernel headers of the running kernel.  Please ensure that the header files for the running kernel are installed on this sytem.08:41
linuxfreakerThat is what it skips and goes ahead08:42

allandeewhat do you have in your /lib64/modules?  do you have the stuff for 3.0.3 there?08:48
allandee(and if not, why would the script try to link to it?)08:49

allandeeoops, I meant 3.*309:03
linuxfreakerok let me see09:04
allandeethe script is looking for the kernel header files in /lib64/modules/<version>-server/build/kernel09:04
allandeeand that seems unorthodox09:05
linuxfreakerI did suppiled that but it dint work09:05
allandeeand, I thought, maybe a new scheme with 3.009:05
linuxfreakerI think Linux 3.0 has something to do here09:05
linuxfreakerYou guys dont wait for Linus Torvald to make it GA either09:06
linuxfreakerVery Quick :)09:06
linuxfreakerBut I respect Ubuntu ..thats my fav distro09:06
linuxfreakerWill be out for another 20 mins for tea09:09
linuxfreakerthanx allendee for the support09:09
linuxfreakerwish if someone can try installing gcc on ubuntu alpha209:10
linuxfreakerI am installing a fresh copy again to see what is going wrong09:10
allandeeI've run dry short of stupid forcing, like "ln -s /usr/src/linux-headers-3.0.3-64 /lib64/modules/3.0.3/server/build/kernel"09:11
allandeeyou can see where the linux-headers package puts the header-files with "dpkg -L <package-name>" after it's installed.  ln -s that directory to /lib64/modules/3.0.3-server/build/kernel -- that's the best I can do, cheesy as frack, but I can't wrap my head around how that script ends on that being the cool location to look for the headerfiles09:16
allandeeI tried making the script inherit the environment variables "CPATH", "C_INCLUDE_PATH" and "CPLUS_INCLUDE_PATH", btw, and passing -- -I<path> that weirdly is interpreted, but not passed on to the compiler.09:22
linuxfreakeri m back09:28
linuxfreakerlinking dint work09:34
allandeeis there a different error, then?09:39
linuxfreakerI am going to try in fresh ubuntu09:41
linuxfreakerapt-get install build-essentail getting fine09:41
linuxfreaker2 min to go09:41
allandeeI'm going to go out on a limb and say that you will still have no header files in "/lib64/modules/3.0.3/server/build/kernel" - but maybe that monster script decides to look elsewhere, idk09:42
linuxfreakerThe same erro allen09:44
linuxfreakerSeems like the vmware script is unable to find the gcc and kernel-header in fresh too09:45
linuxfreakerBut surprisngly it worked in Alpha 109:46
Machtinhummm.. i got a xonar dx and can't unmute the s/pdif, any ideas?09:52

ephanI have a question about Ubuntu 11.10 Oneiric, Daily Builds11:11
ephanI'd like to know if I can use Wifi Internet if I run a daily build of it live11:11
icerootephan: i would suggest if you have questions like that to not use a daily-build. instead run the stbale-release 11.0411:16
ephaniceroot, I need to use the daily build in order to build Unity11:17
ephanAnd I'm wondering if live, I can use the internet. When I used 11.04 Daily Builds, I could not11:17
icerootephan: try it11:18
Ian_CorneMy 0.02EUR, try it11:18
Ian_Cornedamn iceroot !11:18
icerootephan: depending on the wifi-chip and if it is supported11:18
Ian_Corneit should work11:18
icerootIan_Corne: just to slow .)11:18
ephaniceroot, maybe I should repose my question. I tried it, and I could only log in as guest, and to use internet I needed a guest password, which I didn't have because I never set up. Thanks11:19
icerootephan: i think we should start at another point. why do you need to build unity?11:19
ephaniceroot, I want to try the Bitesize bugs campaign11:20
icerootephan: there should be an info on the live-cd/download-page what are the logins11:21
ephanhttp://cdimage.ubuntu.com/daily-live/current/ This is where I downloaded it from, and I could not find any information on logins. Thanks11:23

geserBLZbubba: yes, and I didn't hear of any plans to replace upstart13:37
geserthe transition cost from upstart to something else (like systemd) is too big for too little benefit13:37
PiciIf it were to go away, I wouldn't expect it until after 12.0413:39

gjlis alpha 3 still on track to be released today?15:06
fashunI am using alpha 3 downloaded from the daily build15:08
Ian_Corneburner: yes15:10
BLZbubbaburner: yeah for 3d games nouveau will not be your friend.  what's wrong with the nvidia driver?15:13
BLZbubbayou should be able to just load the package15:13
quzicome on where's that alpha 3.. How can we find out when it comes out ?15:16
Ian_Cornekeep tryin http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/releases/oneiric/alpha-315:17
geserBLZbubba: there was a discussion in May 2011 about systemd, see https://lists.ubuntu.com/archives/ubuntu-devel/2011-May/thread.html if you are interested15:19
Piciquzi: Why don't you just grab the daily iso if you're so eager?15:19
quziPici: not the same :P15:20
quzigeser: are you saying ubuntu will switch from upstart to systemd ?  I thought that ain't happening.. not after all the money spent on upstart15:22
geserquzi: no, it won't happen as far as I know but a user started a discussion in May if Ubuntu switches or not15:23
quzigeser: what's your oppinion on systemd VS upstart ?15:24
geserquzi: I don't know neither upstart nor systemd good enough to have an opinion about it15:27
burnerBLZbubba: the package being nvidia-current right?  I have it...  I've removed all nouveau.  I aptitude reinstalled it... Then I created an xorg.conf with sudo nvidia-xconfig, but I get no DM when I try.  If I remove xorg.conf, it goes back to nouveau or nv presumably15:27
ubottuA common kernel (boot)parameter is nomodeset, which is needed for some graphic cards that otherwise boot into a black screen or show corrupted splash screen. See http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1613132 on how to use this parameter15:28
burneri'll give that a shot... thanks15:29
genii-aroundburner: If you have a line like GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="nouveau.modeset=1" in /etc/default/grub for instance, the nouveau driver loads and the nvidia doesn't even if it's installed15:30
BLZbubbaburner: you should try the nvidia config utility, and turn on twinview16:35
BLZbubbaiirc it is just nvidia-xconfig --twinview16:36
BLZbubbageser: daily iso?16:36
BLZbubbaquzi: upstart needs better tools, there are situations where it just stops with no messages on what went wrong - e.g. i had an nfs server in /etc/fstab that was down, and ubuntu server wouldn't boot and had no error message anywhere16:38
BLZbubbai would hate it less if it were more mature in that regard - e.g. if it were easy to make it write everything it does to a log file16:39
BLZbubbait is almost unusable in container environments e.g. openvz16:39
quziBLZbubba: I see what you mean. And seems like systemd is far more actively developed. Or at least a glance at their repos shows a clear difference16:42
quzido you think Ubuntu would consider replacing upstart? I mean that's the trend right now :D It's fedora, opensuse and others switching at the moment16:43
macogiven canonical makes upstart, i doubt it16:43
micahgquzi: that was tabled until after the LTS16:43
macoalso, ChromeOS uses upstart too, not everybody's switching away from upstart...just away from SysV Init16:44
yofelBLZbubba: nfs mount stopping the boot is actually mountall hanging with a plymouth prompt on what to do16:45
BLZbubbai understand RHEL 7 will drop upstart at least.  that is a positive step16:47
BLZbubbayofel: yeah that could be it, except my 10.04 servers don't show any kind of prompt when this happens16:47
BLZbubbait is a cool concept, once it matures it will be great16:48
BLZbubbamaybe if it had a boot method where it gives you a "yes/no" prompt for every possible service16:48
yofelhm, shouldn't happen. Try adding 'nobootwait' as mount option. Not documented anywhere I could see, but should help16:48
BLZbubbayofel: well the problem was that mountall just failed and so it didnt emit the event that the next step needed16:49
BLZbubbait wasn't waiting for anything, init just stopped initting16:49
yofelit didn't fail, is simply waited for user action - which never happened16:50
BLZbubbai'll try hosing my mythbuntu system tonight and see what happens.  it is 11.0416:50

xxxjjgalvez__: what problems do you experince?18:36
jjgalvez__none specifically with Oneiric, (I've not tried it yet) but with natty there are several performance issues with it being run within virtualbox, I think they all have to do with compiz because it works a little better with unity-2d. Note the last version of ubuntu worked great in virtualbox even with composting turned on18:38
