philipballewHow can I put a time line in my terminal to see when an error happened?00:31
* phillw hiyas guys, dapenguin is having a problem with torrenting... any one up to help help him?01:52
dapenguinthank you, phill!   very kind of you, sir! :)01:54
nlsthzn-at-workwhat is the issue01:54
dapenguinok, i can try to explain as simply and as brief as possible but i'm not very adept at it so bare with me, please?01:55
dapenguini tried vuze and then transmission in linux and i could not d/l any torrent01:56
dapenguini got the error msg:01:56
dapenguinError Requested download is not authorized for use with this01:56
dapenguin> tracker.01:56
dapenguinhappens almost automatically01:56
dapenguinthen i tried the same in windows using vuze and no problem01:56
nlsthzn-at-workdapenguin: are you using a firewall?01:59
dapenguini don't think so02:00
dapenguinwould be software-based if i was ... how can i tell?02:01
dapenguini doubt i am using a firewall... i usually opt out of installing that when i install th eos02:02
nlsthzn-at-workin ubuntu in terminal you can type sudo ufw status02:02
dapenguinunless it installs by default?02:02
dapenguinsudo ufw gives status of firewall?02:02
nlsthzn-at-workyou are using Ubuntu?02:02
dapenguini booted up windows to do my test02:03
nlsthzn-at-workbut the issue you are having is in Ubuntu?02:03
phillwdapenguin: for things like torrenting, this is about the best place to be, you will just have to be patient.02:03
* nlsthzn-at-work is no expert but will gladly try an assist till to pro's show up :p02:04
dapenguinn1sthz, yes02:04
dapenguini'm using mirc in windows so it's a pain typing and i don't know how to use it02:04
nlsthzn-at-workwell, from what I could learn online this error could mean a ports issue (which is why I asked about the firewall) but usually means an issue on the trackers side... but seeing as Windows have no issues that rules that out :/02:07
nlsthzn-at-workif you didn't activate the firewall in Ubuntu it will still be off...02:08
dapenguini check, how?02:09
nlsthzn-at-workwell... in ubuntu in a terminal you can type sudo ufw status02:10
dapenguini would figure ports would make sense but that would mean linux does smth different compared to windows?02:10
nlsthzn-at-workif it is enabled you can use sudo ufw disable02:10
dapenguini'm in windows right now d/l02:10
dapenguini copied the command so i can try later02:10
dapenguinwhat if it's disabled, then what?02:10
nlsthzn-at-workI have to go now... night shift is over...  good luck, hope you get it sorted!!02:11
nlsthzn-at-workcome back here and ask and give info like firewall is disabled...02:11

g3rdierror (initramfs) cpL: cant start '/custom-installation/third=override/*': No such file or directory mount: mounting /dev/loop0 .... please help im super keen to use ubuntu i really cant take another day with this flipping mac!06:17
g3rdiI get this straight after the ubunut loading page in a cmd like interface06:17
CrOnOs2000mmmm what did you do ? compile a new kernel maybe?06:21
CrOnOs2000ok is a fresh install then?06:23
g3rdiyeah .. i am installing from vm tools06:24
g3rdil have done this before with 10.10 and it worked06:25
g3rdithen got a new pc ...and mac for work ( <- life ruiner ) and tried 11.0406:25
CrOnOs2000hoo you are on the new version, sorry but i havent try that still on 10.04 but it seems the kernel cant find the initramfs06:27
g3rdii want the initramfs! i need the initramfs ( *gir voice) ... i cant be the only one with this oproblem can i ? I have searched but have not come up with anything06:29
CrOnOs2000normaly there is no need for initramfs but if you want to load some kernel modules when kernel is loaded it use initramfs for some reason seems your system did not make the file06:29
CrOnOs2000let me check if you can run the comand on terminal, i know if you update the grub the script will run and remake the initramfs but wait a bit06:32
g3rdiok cool06:33
CrOnOs2000dpkg-reconfigure [linux-image-2.6.18-3-686] <- your kernel, you can try this06:37
g3rdido i enter in all that text?06:38
CrOnOs2000you enter sudo dpkg-reconfigure and your kernel number you can get the kernel number by typing uname -a06:39
CrOnOs2000im now on win 7 , i have not access to a terminal06:40
CrOnOs2000this comand will try to regenerate the initramfs in case yours had some problem the first time06:41
g3rdiit says sudo:not found. I think im doing this wrong. The cmd has "(initramfs)" instead of the $user thing that is normally with terminal06:42
CrOnOs2000ok then you never really boot into your system you get initramfs comand line06:44
g3rdiyeah there is a list of cmds i can use but it seems pretty limited06:44
CrOnOs2000do you have the recovery option from grub when you boot ??06:47
g3rdino i dont see it in the cmds when i type "help"06:50
CrOnOs2000well seems you can mount your system by hand but seems complex, best bet is to boot as single user then uninstall vmtools06:52
CrOnOs2000OMG my internet realy sucks pages dont even load zzzzzzzzzzzzz06:54
g3rdiyeah , i think thats the way to go, i was trying to keep a VM for photoshop but you know what , stuff it! if adobe doesnt want to make a version of thier software for linux then .. thier lost06:55
CrOnOs2000Hold down the Shift key during bootup, when the grub menu shows up select Recovery Mode.06:55
g3rdicool Thanks!06:55
CrOnOs2000im shure vmtools can be installed but i dont know how havent use vmware a lot06:56
g3rdii think i am going to make the move to gimp06:57
g3rdiand ink06:58
CrOnOs2000well they are free so you dont pay07:00
CrOnOs2000did you try crosover?07:01
g3rdiwhats that?07:01
CrOnOs2000is a paid version of wine, wine kind of a emulator of windows so you can run win apps on linux07:02
