madeentjedoes anyone know if booting ubuntu 11.04 64bit in 13-15 secs on an SSD with seqentual read speed of 285MBps is normal?00:01
noob232if i start from live cd, FN + Arrow Up & Down works for changing the brightness.. It shows the slider, no problems.. In my installation it showed the slider, but didnt change the brightness00:01
ircmonkeymadeentje depends on your ssd00:01
ircmonkeymy ssd does ~500+00:01
ircmonkeyMB/s :p00:01
irrumator_I just installed PHP, MySQL, and Apache2 from synaptic. How do I get them all to talk to each other so i can work on my PHP and MySQL sites from my computer easily from /var/www/ ?00:01
madeentjemine too ircmonkey, but i'm on 3Gbps you see :/00:01
zabomber!lamp | irrumator00:02
ubottuirrumator: LAMP is an acronym for Linux-Apache-MySQL-PHP. However, the term is often used for setups using alternative but different software, such as Perl or Python instead of PHP, and Postgres instead of MySQL. For help with setting up LAMP on Ubuntu, see  https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ApacheMySQLPHP - See also the Server CD installation process (different in Edgy+)00:02
movingaheadleave #ubuntu00:02
noob232also if i start the CD with no_acpi, i can also turn off the backlight, which worked NEVER before00:02
ircmonkeythen  your max will be 300MB/s00:02
[THC]AcidRainjrib, no i cant. it works fine on the new user i created00:02
madeentjeit's an M4 Crucial 128GB00:02
ircmonkeythen its reasonable with some overhead00:02
ircmonkeyso00:02
madeentjebut 13-15 secs seems so long...so i think something is wrong...because on youtube and forums and all i see ppl who say they boot in 3-5 secs, and like 8 secs max00:02
ircmonkeyis that with post included?00:02
madeentjeand several ppl i know with a regular HDD boot within 20 secs00:02
ircmonkeylike i said00:03
ircmonkeyis that with POST included?00:03
madeentjeno, it's "recorded" by bootchart00:03
noob232ChrisRJersey: I already read i might be a problem with nvidia drivers, im doing a fresh install right now00:03
ircmonkeythat is the power on self test00:03
madeentjeso without POST00:03
jrib[THC]AcidRain: so there seem to be 2 issues, right? 1) gnome-appearance-properties isn't able to change the icon theme and 2) even if you change the gconf value for your icon theme, nautilus does not take notice00:03
ircmonkeyif you have an old laptop -> with old bios it will take a while00:03
madeentjePOST takes almost 20 secs on its own ><00:03
ircmonkey>_<00:03
ircmonkeyfail :p00:03
madeentjebut after POST, it still takes 13-15 secs00:03
[THC]AcidRainjrib, right00:03
[THC]AcidRainso this means.....00:03
ircmonkeywell thats not incredibly fast then00:04
madeentjeand that seems look :/, should be around 5 secs if i google around...00:04
ircmonkeymy MBP bootsup in 20 secs (post included i mean) :P00:04
madeentjewow nice :d00:04
[THC]AcidRaincan i just replace all of the .gnome files with the etc/skel ?00:04
jrib[THC]AcidRain: pastebin your ~/.xsession-errors .  Also, try running gnome-appearance-properties in a terminal and changing the theme.  Is there any terminal output?00:04
madeentjeso....something's probably wrong :/00:04
ircmonkeywhat gfx do you have?00:04
jrib[THC]AcidRain: you could just delete them if you don't mind losing your settings.  Sure.00:04
ircmonkeyi had an ssd in my old laptop00:04
ircmonkeysame prob00:04
ircmonkeyit was the nvidia drivers which were buggy00:04
ircmonkeyand loading for 15 secs of the approx 20 - 25 secs00:05
madeentjei've done EVERYthing i could find on the internet about SSD improvement on linux, and done all that, and everything seems to work, excep for....partition alignment, i'll explain in a sec00:05
[THC]AcidRainjrib, command was not found00:05
madeentjemy gfx is an Asus EAH (HD) 489000:05
jrib[THC]AcidRain: for what?00:05
ircmonkeyah00:05
[THC]AcidRainjrib, if i delete them. the only settings i will lose is my apperance correct?00:05
madeentjewas top-notch 2 years ago :P00:05
ircmonkeyso ati.00:05
madeentjeyup00:05
[THC]AcidRainfor xsession-errors00:05
ircmonkeyi have same in my desktop so.00:05
jrib[THC]AcidRain: ~/.xsession-errors is text file00:05
irrumator_nvm, i just tested with <?php phpinfo(); ?> file and it all seems to be interoperating. something wrong with wordpress maybe00:05
[THC]AcidRainlol00:05
madeentjeah oke :D00:05
ircmonkeyoc'd version but ok *00:05
madeentjecool00:05
madeentjeso....that shouldn't be the issue either?00:06
jrib[THC]AcidRain: there's more than just appearance information in ~/.gnome2 and ~/.gconf00:06
ircmonkeydon't know if there's a measurement prog for your prob00:06
madeentjewell, you know bootchart?00:06
ircmonkey*asks in this chan..00:06
ircmonkeynope00:06
jrib[THC]AcidRain: here's a third thing for you to do: pastebin /home/acidrain/.gconf/desktop/gnome/interface/%gconf.xml00:06
madeentjethat measures your boottime, and shows all processes being started and all00:06
ircmonkeyi dont analyse booting up stuff myself since im on mac os x :P and all is fine haha :P00:06
madeentjeand how long they take00:06
ircmonkeyso what boot process took so long?00:06
madeentjeye ><, would do the same if it was all fine :)00:06
ircmonkeythen we can look into that :p00:06
madeentjewell..they all seem to take a while00:07
noob232someone can help me?00:07
madeentjewant me to give you the link to the file? i uploaded it00:07
ircmonkeythere must be something thats delaying00:07
irrumator_ok, so whenever i navigate to localhost/wordpress/ on my box, i should see the index.php file to setup wordpress correct? for some reason, apache is serving me up a download file. i think this is a problem with compression of files or something. how do i fix this/00:07
ircmonkeysure.00:07
madeentjeoke ty00:07
[THC]AcidRaini dont have an xsession-errors file00:07
ircmonkeyi think you have one thing thats delaying the other processes ;)00:07

madeentjeoh really? :o00:07
[THC]AcidRainhttp://pastebin.com/0VnP4iHX00:08
ircmonkeynot sure00:08
[THC]AcidRainjrib, im sry i cant find things. i swear it wasnt there a second ago00:08
ircmonkeyor your ssd is die-ing :P00:08
ircmonkeyhaha00:08
madeentjeircmonkey: but euh, about the partition alignment i talked about earlier, that's the ONLY thing i didn't do for SSD improvement that i could find on the internet00:08
madeentjemy partition starts at sector 6300:08
madeentjeso that's totally wrong00:08
ircmonkeyor it just doesnt have enough iops :P00:09
madeentjethat's for old HDD's00:09
madeentjebut it did perfectly fine on windows00:09
ircmonkeyin comparison with other ssd's :p00:09
madeentjewindows booted in like 15 secs =S00:09
robin0800[THC]AcidRain, what version of ubuntu are you running?00:09
madeentjewindows 700:09
ircmonkeyyeah windows does itself00:09
[THC]AcidRain11.0400:09
ircmonkeyalignment00:09
irrumator_ok, so i flushed my browser cache and I see the error establishing db conn error. that's good. i know my way from here. thanks guys.00:09
madeentjeyes00:09
MoMohow can i tell if my ubuntu is 64 bit or 32 bit?00:09
madeentjeso the alignment is probably what's delaying it?00:09
ircmonkeyand optimatizing - also turns fragmentation off ;)00:09
rbnswartzDoes anyone know if the nvidia geforce 9800M GTS will work on ubuntu 11.04?00:09
madeentjeyes yes :p, no fragmentation00:09
edbianMoMo: uname -a00:09
ircmonkeycould be (small chance i think)00:09
noob232who has laptop backlight working?00:09
ircmonkeywho doesnt n00b :P00:10
madeentjehmm...well, thing is, i don't know how to correctly align it now :S00:10
jrib[THC]AcidRain: when you get a chance try running gnome-appearance-properties from a terminal00:10
richard-question: how do i stop ubuntu from booting directly into xwindows/gnome?  i'd like to just get to the console at the moment.00:10
ircmonkeybacklight keyboard, backlight lcd :p00:10
edbianircmonkey: Is there a way to turn it off without shutting down the machine?00:10
madeentjei read everywhere ubuntu 11.04 does it autoamtically for you00:10
h00k!who00:10
ubottuAs you can see, this is a large channel. If you're speaking to someone in particular, please put their nickname in what you say (use !tab), or else messages get lost and it becomes confusing :)00:10
hdon-hi all :) i am trying to install lsb, but it says i have unfulfilled dependencies that won't be installed. i tried to install lsb with -f, tried installing dependencies with -f and it gave me another list of packages that won't be installed. am i chasing the rabbit down the wrong hole?00:10
noob232ircmonkey: me, it works in the live-cd.. but not on my installation00:10
madeentjethe correct alignment00:10
madeentjebut seems like it's bugged for me...00:10
ircmonkeymadeentje --> I dont really think its a problem the alignment.00:10
[THC]AcidRainjrib, that loaded the normal theme manager...00:10
pwntyfirefox is giving me hard time in Natty, keeps crashing every now and then, any suggestion for another browser thats good?00:11
ircmonkeyif you'd like to find out00:11
h00k!who | madeentje, ircmonkey00:11
ubottumadeentje, ircmonkey: As you can see, this is a large channel. If you're speaking to someone in particular, please put their nickname in what you say (use !tab), or else messages get lost and it becomes confusing :)00:11
ircmonkeyreinstall00:11
jrib[THC]AcidRain: right, now try to change icon theme and look for terminal output00:11
ircmonkeyand look up the perfect alignment for your ssd00:11
madeentjeircmonkey: hmm oke....00:11
noob232ircmonkey: doing, right now00:11
ircmonkeyi guess use something like gparted or something00:11
ircmonkeyfor that00:11
madeentjeoke, srr ubottu00:11
[THC]AcidRainjrib, no terminal output00:11
jrib[THC]AcidRain: and you are unable to select a different icon theme?00:11
[THC]AcidRaini CAN select00:12
ircmonkeyBUT madeentje00:12
ircmonkeylook at the graphical chart00:12
madeentjeircmonkey: yes, i'll do that, but i'm scared to do it manually...ubuntu should do it autoamtically correct for me :/, i'll try once more, if it's bugged again, i guess i'll have to do it manually ye..00:12
madeentjeyes?00:12
ircmonkeyyou see -> iops -> waiting for your storage00:12
ircmonkeyis the red graph00:12
madeentjelemme see00:12
ircmonkeywhich is very high in the beginning ;)00:12
jrib[THC]AcidRain: so it remembers your selection, it's just that nautilus doesn't reflect the change visually?00:12
[THC]AcidRainright00:13
ircmonkeyand btw:00:13
pwntyfirefox is giving me hard time in Natty, keeps crashing every now and then, any suggestion for another browser thats good?00:13
jrib[THC]AcidRain: what ubuntu version is this?00:13
ircmonkeyhave you tried with as lil devices mounted possible :)00:13
[THC]AcidRainjrib, 11.0400:13
ircmonkeylike no usb stuff thats unneccesarry....00:13
jrib[THC]AcidRain: what have you done since install?00:13
h00kircmonkey, madeentje: please direct your message to who you're talking to, to avoid confusion00:13
[THC]AcidRainjrib, install a web server00:13
ActionParsnippwnty: chromium00:13
[THC]AcidRaini also downloaded art manager00:13
=== `mOOse` is now known as m00se
ircmonkeymadeentje: like external hdd --> u mount it , usb is slow00:13
[THC]AcidRainto get cool leet themes00:14
ircmonkeyh00k sry*00:14
jrib[THC]AcidRain: "art manager"?00:14
madeentjeircmonkey: yes, did that too, didn't make it much if any faster00:14
[THC]AcidRainjrib, yes sir. its in repos00:14
[THC]AcidRainit just grabs art from gnome00:14
madeentjeircmonkey: and i don't see the IOPS, what color is it?00:14
ircmonkeymadeentje troublesome you aare :P00:14
damlox_hello00:14
madeentjeircmonkey: ah the red00:14
jrib[THC]AcidRain: what's the package name?00:14
ircmonkeymadeentje your second graph, disk troughput00:14
madeentjeircmonkey: so what does that red mean? it's waiting? but why is it waiting while booting? ><00:14
ircmonkeymadeentje : beats me, sucky ssd :P don't really know if thats normal or not00:15
[THC]AcidRaingnome-art i think00:15
tookietockwhy is it telling me Downloads doesnt exist...00:15
madeentjeircmonkey: and my disk throughput is really high at first, and then it drops to really low :S00:15
ircmonkeymadeentje: you would have some comparison material for that ^^00:15
[THC]AcidRainyes, its gnome-art00:15
noneabove1182guys, i gots a problem with wubi.exe install of ubuntu, the one where you put it on a virtual hardrive next to windows thing00:16
richard-question: how do i stop ubuntu from booting directly into xwindows/gnome?  i'd like to just get to the console at the moment.00:16
madeentjeircmonkey: yes, i'll look for a comparison, shouldn't be that hard00:16
ircmonkeymadeentje: im just guessing for the record: its normal that while booting -> you load a lot of files but i was guessing because its an ssd it should be a bit faster .. ;)00:16
ircmonkeymadeentje: so i'm thinking the delay / loading files graph shouldnt be that high00:16
madeentjeircmonkey; oke, ty, but i really don't think it's a sucky SSD...because in windows it was doing a great job00:16
rbnswartzrichard- just hit ctrl+alt+F1 to get to a console00:16
noneabove1182can someone help me with wubi ?00:17
ircmonkeymadeentje you have a 6gbps capable ssd running @t 3GBps speeds...00:17
noneabove1182ChristopherNG hey yea so im still having problems00:17
madeentjeircmonkey: yes oke....i'll reinstall again, but already did that 3 times :/, so either it's bugged each time for me.....or something is wrong with ubuntu/my configuration, coz it shouldn't be the SSD itself, it did fine in windows00:17
madeentjeircmonkey: that's true...00:17
ircmonkeymadeentje .. :Pthats a failure itself :P00:17
madeentjeircmonkey: the failure is windows, you mean? :P00:18
tookietockcd Downloads is telling me theirs no file or directory anyone help?00:18
edbiantookietock: What folder are you currently in?00:18
ircmonkeymadeentje: yes try formating it entirely and look up partitioning and swap file maybe00:18
[THC]AcidRainjrib, i also installed compizconfig settings00:18
madeentjeircmonkey: yes, swap file is on my other HDD00:18
tookietockedbian: i used cd .. to get to the top00:19
ircmonkeymadeentje: only things i can think of swapping, iops --> bad performance ssd. or bad driver that its loading while booting........ --> in my case that was an nvidia card and the new driver sucked arse00:19
madeentjeircmonkey: and oke, ty, i'll format and partition again once more, and if it bugs again on sector 63, i'll partition it manually and see what happens with my boottime00:19
ircmonkeywhy is the swap on your other HDD :|00:19
ActionParsniptookietock: try:  cd ~/Downloads00:19
ircmonkey*cries*00:19
noneabove1182does anyone else here have a problem of ubuntu getting stuck during startup with WUBI install???00:19
ActionParsnipircmonkey: speed?00:19
ircmonkeymake a partition on your ssd00:19
madeentjeircmonkey: because several articles google provided me suggested that ><00:19
=== `mOOse` is now known as m00se
edbiantookietock: Then you have to give a complete path to Downloads (/home/<you>/Downloads presumably)00:19
Phong_question: usually the long ther interviewing processing is it means better?00:19
ircmonkey--> for swap00:19
ircmonkeyswap file on your ssd plz :P00:20
edbiantookietock: ~ is a shortcut for /home/<you>00:20
tookietockedbian: ahh ty00:20
edbiantookietock: sure00:20
ActionParsnipircmonkey: it willwear it out quicker00:20
madeentjeactionparsnip: hello, ty for joining us ^^00:20
ircmonkeymadeentje: note that swap partition should be 'faster' than 'swapfile' but if im not mistaken - put swapfile on your ssd and it will swap faster ;)00:21
ircmonkeyactionparsnip: dont be silly , they're made for this stuff00:21
ircmonkeya lil swap is no prob.00:21
madeentjeircmonkey: but i NEVER use swapfile, i have 6GB ram and never reach that much, i only use it for hibernate, so it doesn't have to be fast00:21
jrib[THC]AcidRain: you never answered my questions before when I asked you what you meant when you said you were running things as root00:21
* ircmonkey is running a vm atm00:21
noneabove1182Can anyone help me out..?00:21
ircmonkeyon ssd*00:21
noneabove1182even if its in a bit, just let me know00:21
ircmonkeymadeentje but you just said u allocated the swap file to your regular hDD ? :S00:22
edbiannoneabove1182: Just ask your question00:22
madeentjeircmonkey: yes i did00:22
pea_brainpea_brain00:22
ircmonkeymadeentje : WHY xd00:22
ActionParsnipircmonkey: i'd rather make it last that bit longer,plus swap is rarely used. I would put it on a platter based partition too along with the filesfor /home. ONly have / on the SSD :)00:22
bfreisHello, why there's no Java 7 yet in the Natty repositories? Does anyone know of a PPA with Java 7?00:22
[THC]AcidRainjrib, well gconf-edit has a different icon theme output as sudo, rather than not typing sudo00:22
ActionParsnipmadeentje: thanks :)00:22
noneabove1182edbian well i have... im having a problem where ubuntu gets stuck during loading and wont continue00:22
pea_brainthanks to all for th help00:22
madeentjeand that seems to work fine, several ppl even recommended that on forums and all :/, because then it doesn't wear out the SSD, and it's like several GB's lost on a precious SSD with little space (mine is 128GB, and i made the swap-partition 6GB coz my RAM is also 6GB)00:23
edbiannoneabove1182: Can you elaborate.  Have you installed or are you talking about hte liveCD ?00:23
ircmonkeyactionparsnip: i dont care when my ssd is worn out in about 5 years we are xx generations further and i'd probably have bought a new ssd already00:23
ircmonkeyhw is meant to be used.. -_-00:23
noneabove1182edbian i installed it using WUBI.exe, the one found here to clarify : http://www.ubuntu.com/download/ubuntu/windows-installer00:23
edbiannoneabove1182: Ugh, wubi :P00:23
noneabove1182edbian it worked the first time i loaded it, but then after installing updates it gets stuck00:24
madeentjeircmonkey: yes true...it's not big of a deal, you're prolly right, but it doesn't have much to do with the boottime, i'm pretty sure...00:24
edbiannoneabove1182: When does it get stuck?00:24
ircmonkeybesides the writes are completely random and there are tests, that you would destory your ssd if you overwrite your own ssd's capacity like 8 times a day (NOBODY does that)00:24
PhaseThe spec page for this computer shows that it supports "DDR2 PC4200" memory, the RAM I'm looking at is "DDR2 PC2 4200" (note the 2 in PC2), would it still work, whats that mean?00:24
noneabove1182edbian yea i know but my computer isnt working with usb boot and i have no CDs to spare :/00:24
jrib[THC]AcidRain: nothing else?00:24
ircmonkeyin a few years..00:24
[THC]AcidRainjrib, correct00:24
jrib[THC]AcidRain: are you changing the icon theme *without* sudo?00:24
ActionParsnipPhase: ask in ##hardware00:24
PhaseActionParsnip: thanks00:24
noneabove1182edbian and well right when it starts up theres a bunch of white text and yea, i can type last couple lines of it or upload a few pictures i took of it00:24
edbiannoneabove1182: When does it get stuck?  (how old is this machine?  pretty much every machine can boot usb)00:24
ircmonkeyPhase yes, thats the same00:25
edbiannoneabove1182: pictures would be great00:25
madeentjeircmonkey: oke, thx, i'll keep that in mind, so i'll test with the swap-file on the SSD itself, and btw, here you can compare another bootchart with an SSD booting within 5 secs: http://overbenny.files.wordpress.com/2010/04/deep-thought-lucid-20100331-disk-throughput.png00:25
Phaseircmonkey: Thanks00:25
tookietockanyone know how to install a tar.gz00:25
noneabove1182edbian its about a month old, it BOOTS off the usb, but it gets stuck before anything happens past the copyright thing00:25
ircmonkeytookietock: extract the tar file00:25
noneabove1182edbian like theres one line of copyright then nothing happens past that00:25
noneabove1182edbian and how should i get these pictures to you ?00:25
ircmonkeytookietock: using command line something like xv -f tarfilename00:26
ircmonkeytookietock: ill look up the parameter*00:26
tookietockircmonkey: when i extract it i get .so and a usr folder00:26
edbiannoneabove1182: imageshack.us00:26

jrib[THC]AcidRain: hmm?00:28
ircmonkeyits on the site where you downloaded it from if im not mistaken :p00:28
edbiannoneabove1182: Does the system freeze the same way on wubi as it does booting of a liveUSB?00:28
* ircmonkey will try in my vm one sec :p00:29
ogramsesCan anyone help me toggle identd on xchat? please?00:29
tookietockhavnt seen one00:29
ActionParsniptookietock: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:sevenmachines/flash; sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install flashplugin64-installer00:29

noneabove1182edbian no they freeze at different stuff, im uploading pictures of both, 5 are of the wubi, one of the liveUSB (since its only one line anyways)00:30
ActionParsniptookietock: looks for stuff like that, rather than downloading individual files to mess with00:30
edbiannoneabove1182: Hopefully they're labeled :)00:31
[THC]AcidRainjrib, idk, i give up man00:31
jrib[THC]AcidRain: are you changing the icon theme *without* sudo?00:31

th0rb0w: xpad?00:35
edbiannoneabove1182: :)   Can you pop the harddrive out of this laptop for a second.  Will the USB boot normally if the hdd is not connected.  Make sure the power is off and the battery is out, and the machine is unplugged when you take out the hdd.00:35
edbiannoneabove1182: I'd rather work on a normal install that fix wubi.  It is a more robust solution :)00:36
escottnoneabove1182, the second to last shows an evergreen RIP stack trace. so something is going wrong with your graphics card. have you tried the nomodeset00:36
darksiderhi could someone please help a 'just-above amateur' linux//ubuntu user with an issue involving no sound00:36
noneabove1182edbian uhh i might be able to.. not gonna lie that worries me a bit but yea XD00:36
noneabove1182escott no i havent00:36
b0wth0r, italoxp thanks guys! ill take a look at those00:36
edbiannoneabove1182: sure  It's just my suspicion and this is the easiest way to check00:37
darksideri think i may have accidentally removed something it needs to use my soundcard00:37
ogramsesCan anyone help me set identd? 11.04?00:37
ircmonkeywell imma sleep, ill remember this channel for when i have esx running on my server - and ubuntu server vm's :P00:37

escottnoneabove1182, also see http://askubuntu.com/questions/39562/radeon-module-boot-problems00:37
noneabove1182edbian well whats your idea atm sorry ?00:37
edbiannoneabove1182: take the hdd out and try to boot the liveUSB with it removed00:38
noneabove1182edbian yea im just wondering what you think is wrong, if taking the hdd out will prove anything00:38
darksiderbecause the PREFERENCES>>Sound app/function just brings up a popup with "Waiting for system to respond" that never goes away00:38
noneabove1182escott thanks ill give that a read00:38
edbiannoneabove1182: It means that there is something wrong with the partitions (windows partitions) which is very common.  Windows boots just fine and ignores them but ubuntu gets stuck.00:39
edbiannoneabove1182: If I'm right then windows can repair them00:39
darksideri REALLY don't want to have to re-format and install because i have alot of music and movies00:39
darksiderand my articles, poetry, books, everything is on here00:39
noneabove1182edbian but i have no partition yet, its just the usb trying to load up ?00:39
darksiderand i dont have external big enough00:39
edbiannoneabove1182: You have windows installed right?  Then you have partitions :)00:40
wsbl-uhpd651Hello folks.  I need some help getting my IBM Thinkpad to recognize my 16GB flash drive in Ubuntu 11.04.  Currently when I plug it in, it shows up in my places menu - but nothing happens when hit the "16GB File System" icon (i.e. it doesn't activate my flash drive).00:40
noneabove1182escott ill be honest with you, i have little to no idea of how to do what the guy who answered said to do :P00:40
induzI have problem with Mozilla ThunderBird on ubuntu 10.4 my profile is on ~/.mozilla-thunderbird<Profile name>. but I dont know  how to repair it00:40
pdtpatrickwhat's the new name for ncurses package? it was changed i believe00:40
induzThunderbird crashes after 3 seconds00:40
noneabove1182edbian ah alright i see... uhgggg i guess i can do that then.. DX so what am i looking for then to happen/not happen ?00:40
darksideri dunnno why and cant remember what i did to it00:41
darksiderit worked fine before00:41
wsbl-uhpd651Prior to this, I was getting an error - something to the effect of "error mounting: mount: /dev/sbd1: can't read superblock00:41
darksiderbut its driving me crazu00:41
edbiannoneabove1182: Tell me if anything different happens at all.  What we're hoping for is that the USB drive boots right up with no issues at all.00:41
darksidercrazy*00:41
wsbl-uhpd651Now it just won't open it off the Places menu after plugging it in ...00:41
edbianescott: He can't even boot the liveUSB what makes you think it's the radeon module?00:41
noneabove1182edbian alright ill give it a shot.. XD if it does boot up what should i do? shut down, put everything back, and come back here ?00:42
UpAllNightBrainWill cp -r ~/usr /usr/ Replace usr completely or add in the new files without touching anything else.  I'm trying to install software that came in a tar.gz file that extracts to usr/*00:42
wsbl-uhpd651DOES ANYONE HAVE ANY THOUGHTS ON THIS ONE?00:42
edbiannoneabove1182: if it boots up install Ubuntu :)00:42
italoxpExaile is crashing a lot. Guys, any idea?00:42
darksiderNobody ANY ideas or advice AT ALL ?00:42
edbiannoneabove1182: no wait, that doesn't make sense00:42
noneabove1182edbian onto what?? ill have no hdd :S00:42
noneabove1182edbian haha00:42
th0rwsbl-uhpd651: I have a though...stop yelling00:42
induzis there a bug in Thunderbird00:43
edbiannoneabove1182: Hahaha, sorry.  Brain fart.  If it boots up come back here.  You'll need to do a 'disk check' in windows.  You can do it by right clicking your hdd in 'my computer'00:43
darksiderif anyone has an idea, but is busy now and i need to wait then just let me know00:43
wsbl-uhpd651th0r: wasn't really - sorry it came across that way ...00:43

noneabove1182edbian i guess itll help us narrow stuff down00:43
ubuntu__hi00:43
edbiannoneabove1182: yes, the disc check takes a long time00:44
escottedbian, it was ActionParsnip's idea from a few hours ago (and he has often proved himself correct) this is a radeon + core-i-series without disable-able discrete or integrated video (hp doesn't do that) so when the kernel goes to modeset things could get dicey, and the WUBI is failing after dumping a stack trace of something related to radeon evergreen with the string RIP in it.00:44
noneabove1182edbian escott alright ill give it a shot and be back in hopefully a few minutes00:44
PhaseI've been using the 32bit Ubunu release, but I've just discovered my CPU is capable of 64bit. Would there be any noticable performance gains with 1gb of DDR2 memory? What about 2gb DDR2 memory?00:44
induzhow can i remove/delet a program on Ubuntu10.0400:45
edbianescott: Ahh, didn't see the wubi dump yet00:45
irrumator_how do you make sure the permissions on a file are, say chmod640?00:45
* ActionParsnip blushes00:45
irrumator_how do you tell from ls -l for example00:45
wsbl-uhpd651All I had was pictures on this flash drive.  I was able to run some commands in Terminal to recover them.00:45
irrumator_and if they're not, how do you change them to be chmod 640?00:45
th0rPhase: get the additional ram, don't waste time on the 64 bit upgrade if you are only looking for speed.00:45
escottPhase, 64bit enables more registers so thats good, but all your addresses are bigger, so its a mixed blessing if you don't have more ram00:45
edbianPhase: the point of 64 bit is to allow more than 3.2Gb of Ram00:45
robin0800Phase, any thing over 3Gb I think00:46
PhaseThanks th0r, escott, edbian, robin080000:46
edbianirrumator_: chmod 640 /path/to/file/00:46
PhaseI'm still getting the 2gb of ram, but I might just stick to 32bit then..00:46
ActionParsnipPhase: you can access up to 64Gb RAM with 32bit + PAE but each process will only be able to access 3.2Gb RAM00:46
escottPhase, probably not worth a complete reinstall just for the registers and sse300:46
wsbl-uhpd651I thought I had to reformat the flash drive - that it had formatting wrong when initially plugging it in upon first use.  But after installing gparted - I see it is already formatted to ext4 ... so I don't understand why Ubuntu won't recognize my flash drive ...00:46
edbianirrumator_: Learn what 640 represents and I think ls -l will be clear enough :)00:46
edbianescott: Yes ActionParsnip is a smart guy :)00:46
Phaseescott: Well, I'll probably stick a Win7 partition on here when I get the extra ram00:46
PhaseJust for gaming.. I miss steam.00:46
irrumator_ok, thanks edbian i'll read up on what 640 is00:47
edbianirrumator_: :)00:47
irrumator_every helpful edbian, in great debt to you00:47
induzbug is in ThunderBird not in ubuntu i guess00:47
wsbl-uhpd651does anyone have a clue as to what is up with my flash drive?00:49
escottwsbl-uhpd651, won't recognize or wont auto-mount. those are different. make sure there aren't any folders in /media that are empty and make sure you are in plugdev, and DONT list the uuid of your thumb drive in fstab00:49
escottwsbl-uhpd651, sudo blkid will tell you the uuid of all attached partitions00:50
h00kwsbl-uhpd651: I just had this issue on Debian testing, I was able to force a mount automatically. It was trying to mount it as a CDROM and not a usb device00:51
noneabove1182edbian yea so i opened up my computer to take the HDD out.... but it was such a mess of everything i think id rather wait like 5 hours for the disk check instead of messing around there XD00:54
wsbl-uhpd651escott: thank you.  first it wouldn't recognize.  NOW - it seems to mount - but won't open.00:54
edbiannoneabove1182: sounds good.  Sometimes they're really easy to remove.  Sometimes not00:54
noneabove1182escott, if you could relink that page about the radeon and maybe give me a few directions on how to do what theyre talking about thatd be nice00:55
noneabove1182edbian yea its in there with a bunch of stuff sadly XD00:55
noneabove1182edbian so what did you want me to do again to make sure ?00:55
edbiannoneabove1182: run the disk check (it shouldn't take that long).00:55
edbiannoneabove1182: http://askubuntu.com/questions/39562/radeon-module-boot-problems   This is the link.00:55
escottnoneabove1182, removing a laptop drive is not supposed to be easy. i think you may be coming at it from the wrong access panel00:56
edbiannoneabove1182: Unfortunately the link suggests we boot a liveUSB and edit some files on the install (and it's not talking about wubi which makes it even harder)00:56
edbianescott: NOT supposed to be easy?00:56
wsbl-uhpd651h00k: I think this is actually what is going on with my flash drive - because that is exactly what it did when I tried it on a Windows PC ...00:56
escottnoneabove1182, (a) boot with nomodeset. this can be done by editing within grub00:56
wsbl-uhpd651h00k: Windows was also recognizing it as a CD drive ...00:56
wsbl-uhpd651h00k: in error ...00:56
escottedbian, ooops thanks... noneabove1182 IS supposed to be easy is NOT supposed to be hard00:56
noneabove1182escott yea unfortunately im a COMPLETE ubuntu noob.. DX00:57
edbiannoneabove1182: Here is an detailed explanation of how to set nomodeset:  http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=161313200:57
unsobillHello guys - how can i improve my VNC is extremely slow on KDE400:57
edbiannoneabove1182: For the record I do not think this will solve the problem.  In my experience nomodeset fixes a completely black screen.00:57
noneabove1182edbian kk so right click > properties > tools > check now ?00:58
edbiannoneabove1182: Additionally I think there is more than one issue here including the possible partition errors00:58
escottnoneabove1182, (a) boot with nomodeset. you can do this by hitting "e" at the boot menu (where you pick between install/test/check media) and then finding the line that says vmlinuz and replacing "splash" with "nomodeset"00:58
edbiannoneabove1182: Yes check now00:58
wsbl-uhpd651escott: I need you to help me a learn a few things here first.  What is "plugdev" and what is "fstab" ???00:58
edbianwsbl-uhpd651: fstab is a file, /etc/fstab that describes what to mount at boot time00:58
edbianwsbl-uhpd651: Whenever anything is mounted an entry is searched for in that file00:59
escottnoneabove1182, (b) blacklist the radeon driver by adding it to /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf see http://askubuntu.com/questions/39562/radeon-module-boot-problems00:59
edbianescott: He can't do that without booting a liveUSB which he can't do noneabove118200:59
whoeverhi all using eclipse and there arn't any code hints, can someone assist ?00:59
escottnoneabove1182, i would suggest trying the alternate installer because it is less likely to try and modeset/load the radeon module in the first place00:59
escottnoneabove1182, so i would start by downloading and making a liveusb of this http://www.ubuntu.com/download/ubuntu/alternative-download01:00
edbiannoneabove1182: escott If I'm right the installer will have trouble partitioning01:00
unsobillany1 help ? I have freebsd box with KDE4 sitting on the same LAN with my Win7 desktop - vnc viewer to freebsd dekstop is extrmeely sloooooow :(01:00
escottedbian, maybe01:00
sudokillunsobill- this is ubuntu channel..01:00
edbianescott: indeed, maybe01:01
wsbl-uhpd651escott: OK - and what is "plugdev" ???01:01
unsobilli cant join freebsd for some reason01:01
unsobillget not registered or something01:01
escottwsbl-uhpd651, type "groups" in a terminal you should see plugdev mentioned01:02
noneabove1182edian escott k so wait whats the latest verdict? XD01:02
noneabove1182edbian sorry mispelt ^01:02
edbiannoneabove1182: We are differing on opinions.  I think you should do the disk check and see if it boots after that.01:02
escottnoneabove1182, we don't know for sure what will work. you just have to try different things. i think something like the alternate or a sysrescuelinux is a good first step01:03
unsobillit tells me not registered01:03
unsobillhow can i register ?01:03
wsbl-uhpd651escott: OK.  "plugdev" comes up when that commad is entered, so I am good on that.01:03
noneabove1182edbian k well the disk check has to happen after a reboot01:03
edbiannoneabove1182: I expected that01:03
escottnoneabove1182, you want to have something that boots to begin with, and then you can hopefully work from there01:03
wsbl-uhpd651escott: For what reason would I ever NOT be in plugdev?01:03
unsobillsecond question i had how to filter all messages by my name only01:03
tookietockanyone help me to install a bundle? says cannot detect character encoding..??01:04
RyuGuns1How do I upgrade Blender?01:04
unsobillhow to finish registering ?01:04
escottwsbl-uhpd651, if you accidentally removed yourself. people commonly add themselves to other groups and by accident remove themselves from other groups. or if you wanted someone to be able to use the machine but not get auto-mounting of external drives01:04
noneabove1182edbian escott do you want me to try the disk check first and then come back here if and when it doesnt work? just because its the one that requires the least direction so itd be less of a waste of time for you guys, especially escott cause id be hoping for a slight guide (which i realise youve given but yea)01:04
Gunnii have a ppa, how on earth do i add it, i can't find how, how do i add this?! https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/icinga01:04

RyuGuns1 /msg NickServ HELP REGISTER01:05
noneabove1182escott you good with that?01:05
ChristopherNGthats what everyone wants to know01:05
escottwsbl-uhpd651, so does the usb stick appear in /proc/partitions (its a file you can "cat /proc/partitions")01:05
=== RyuGuns1 is now known as RyuGuns
edbiannoneabove1182: admittedly this is a guess on my part :P  But obviously I think it's right.01:05
unsobilli confirmed my email01:05
wsbl-uhpd651escott: this is a new thing for me - these "groups".  How do you toggle between being "in" a group our out of it?  I assume there are standard "groups" that you are in by default whenever you log in?01:05
escottnoneabove1182, sure. do whatever you feel comfortable with, you have to work at your own pace01:05
unsobilland got verify string01:05
noneabove1182edbian haha alright sounds good its worth a shot XD01:05
edbiannoneabove1182: yep :)01:06
escottwsbl-uhpd651, the system configures you to be in these groups by default. admin to be able to install software and "sudo" lpadmin to manage printers etc01:06
noneabove1182escott yea i dunno i guess i figure its worth a shot, thanks for the help though ill copy and paste all this text so that i need as little direction as possible should this fail !01:06
Magnetoowhy wubi is giving limit to 30gb installation only? I need to install my ubuntu on 80 GB.. using Ubuntu. Is it possible?01:06
edbianMagnetoo: Yes, do it without wubi :)01:07
wsbl-uhpd651escott: K - makes sense.  What is the "sambashare" group?01:07
escottMagnetoo, i would be worried about a wubi partition that large. its a single file inside ntfs01:07
Magnetoolast time i did.. i messed up the whole partition.01:07
escottwsbl-uhpd651, allows you to manage shares with windows machines01:07
edbianMagnetoo: Just choose the option: 'install alongside windows'01:07
edbianMagnetoo: If you want I can help you manually partition01:08
escottMagnetoo, install alongside or use virtualbox to run inside a vm, but wubi is flaky01:08
Magnetoook, i need to write it thn.01:08
Magnetoothanks.01:08
stuntmachineIs there a better way of doing this:    grep -r -i 'string' `pwd`01:08
escottstuntmachine, grep -r -i 'regexp' .01:09
stuntmachineIt's just that I get the feeling I'm doing something inefficient.01:09
renancoelhoHi there! my hardware is working however the computer is not booting from it. I think maybe something messed up the Grub loader. I am using Ubuntu through the usb. How can I reinstall Grub here? Does this sound logic to you guys?01:09
stuntmachinerenancoelho:  Boot from the Ubuntu media01:09
wsbl-uhpd651escott: Ah.  good call.  K - I'm checking fstab and that proc directory right now.  Hold tight ...01:09
stuntmachinerenancoelho:  Then reinstall GRUB.01:09
edbianrenancoelho: sudo grub-install --boot-directory=/path/to/your/ubuntu/mounted /dev/sda01:09
stuntmachinerenancoelho:  I wrote a blog post about a similar issue01:09
edbianrenancoelho: :)01:10
stuntmachinerenancoelho: http://blog.smalleycreative.com/linux/fix-for-ubuntu-10-04-server-usb-install/01:10
stuntmachinerenancoelho:  Check Step 3:  Fix GRUB01:10
escottwsbl-uhpd651, the fstab is usually listed by uuid not device (device names can change when you hot-plug them but uuid are constant) so use sudo blkid to identify the uuid corresponding to your stick and look for that01:10
stuntmachineyou'll just need to replace /dev/cciss/c0d0 with the path to your hard drive01:10
renancoelhoCool thanks! now let me ask you something really dumb... how do I find out the path to my hard  drive?01:11
Magnetoopwd :o01:12
stuntmachineis there a better way to grep for a string in all files (including files in subdirectories) of a certain directory?01:12
edbianrenancoelho: you have to mount it first, wanna PM me ?01:12
escottstuntmachine, . = `pwd`01:12
jribstuntmachine: better than?01:12
renancoelhosure..01:12
wsbl-uhpd651escott: Wow - you are even more helpful then the last guy!  Here are the answers to your questions ...01:13
linuxuz3rstuntmachine you need to script or program it01:13
edbian:)01:13
stuntmachinelinuxuz3r:  To do a grep on all files in a directory requires a script?01:13
escottstuntmachine, your use of `pwd` can be replaced by a single "."01:14
wsbl-uhpd651escott: it does show up in /proc/partitions.  The UUID is showing up in fstab.  I do have empty folders in /media ("floppy" and "floppy0"), but it does not seem like these are removable (that option is greyed out when I right-click on them)01:14
stuntmachineescott:  I know that, but I want to make sure my general command structure is even right... if there's a better way to accomplish my end result, I'm all ears.01:14
escottwsbl-uhpd651, "The UUID is showing up in fstab" is your issue. the auto-mount will defer to your fstab if there is an entry. so to get the auto-mount behavior remove that line from fstab01:15
escottstuntmachine, no there is no better way.01:15
linuxuz3rstuntmachine: yeah i dont think grep can move to a directory01:15
stuntmachinewell if I do something like: grep -r -i "blah" /var/log01:16
stuntmachinethis works01:16
stuntmachineit greps the files under /var/log01:16
linuxuz3rhow about subdirectories of it?01:16
wsbl-uhpd651escott: OK - so remove ALL the text protruding from that "#" in fstab?01:16
ThomasB2kping01:16
stuntmachineyes01:17
stuntmachinesubdirectories too01:17
linuxuz3roh cool01:17
linuxuz3r-r is recursive?01:17
stuntmachineI love how I came here to find a better way and ended up teaching you guys something :D01:17
stuntmachineThat just made my night01:17
stuntmachineI'm totally trying to wrap my head around KVM right now...  seems extremely complex01:19
wsbl-uhpd651escott: what is the command I run in terminal again to open the "fstab" file with permissions to edit?01:19
compdocstuntmachine, very simple01:19
JimmyNeutronsudo /etc/fstab01:19
stuntmachinecompdoc:  trolling me or serious?  And if serious, do you have any good docs you can share?01:19

Roocyyis ubuntu most popular linux distribution?01:24

compdocRoocyy, its pretty popular01:24
escottwsbl-uhpd651, do confirm that you are removing only the line related to the affected external drive, by comparing the uuid listed there with the uuid from sudo blkid01:24
sudokillRoocyy- it is the most polular01:25

shinsukedo i need programming skills to work with dbus or are my bash scripting skills enough?01:25
JimmyNeutronbad place to ask that question...you're in a Ubuntu channel ... :D01:25
compdocRoocyy, only a handful are in the same league01:25
JimmyNeutronlol01:25
escottRoocyy, distrowatch is a common measure of popularity01:25
JimmyNeutronCentOS, Fedora, and Ubuntu are my favorite01:26
shinsukewell, its for the sake of ubuntu01:26
wsbl-uhpd651escott: I checked the uuid's - and they seemed to match.  Just removed that line, then took out my flash drive and plugged it back in.  No change.  Still recognizes it, but does not open it ...01:26
escottshinsuke, dbus bindings are available for most languages but i doubt bash is a good way to work with it. something like python would probably be better01:26
wsbl-uhpd651I'm going to go eat dineer ... I'll be back in a little bit ...01:26
escottwsbl-uhpd651, and you saved the file01:26
wsbl-uhpd651escott: I'm going to go eat dinner.  I'll be back in a little bit ...  Yes, I saved the file ...01:27

edbiancaden_cotard: Well it's almost def the driver (unless you're just too far away from the router)01:29

escottshinsuke, you would spend all your time learning some set of command line args to make a utility send the dbus message you want instead of doing something useful with dbus01:29

shinsukecaden_cotard, are you sure this does not happen with other ubuntu versions?01:30
caden_cotardI just upgraded01:30
caden_cotardI was on 8.04 (I think) on this same network as of a few days ago, and I upgraded to 10.04 and it's started doing this01:30
shinsukeescott, thanks01:30
caden_cotardthe odd thing is that I can get connectivity back when it happens by just flipping the switch on my laptop, but it will go out again 2 or 3 times, and then it will work ok for a while again01:31
escottcaden_cotard, anything in dmesg?01:33
JimmyNeutroncaden_cotard, check the forum on the wireless NIC....on my router, Netgear WND3700..there were some reported cases of interoperability issues w/ some wireless NIC01:33
user99Hello01:33
JimmyNeutronEven NetGear to Netgear had drop issues01:34

user99I I have a system I built for a fellow last year'01:34

user99worked flawlessly01:34
Asahinayou built?01:34
user99yes built01:34
Asahinaa cp? or software?01:34
shinsukecaden_cotard, got dual boot? if yes then use windows for 1 day and check if it is really ubuntu01:35
renancoelhoEdgan: Thanks so much for the help, the grub reinstall did the trick... I just booted from the HDD... Thanks again!01:35
user99then two days ago I upgraded thru update manager and it updated 52 packages01:35
caden_cotardshinsuke: single boot, but like I said it was workign fine on a previous Ubuntu version01:35
Asahinaubuntu...sucks01:35
caden_cotardescott: there's a lot in dmesg, but I don't know what it means01:35
user99a new kernel came with it and grub/menu.lst had some changes I had to okay01:35
t1me10rdwhat's the command to restart x01:35
Asahinai had to create my own linux op...01:36

user99everything seemded to go fine01:36
renancoelhoAsahina: are you serious?01:36
Asahinaand customize it to my liking01:36
t1me10rdyeah, but thats if x is not running. if it is, what can i do?01:36
Asahinarenancoelho: I WAS BORN SERIOUS01:36
user99then I rebooted and it hangs with 'freeing initrd xxxx'01:36
renancoelholol... Only reason I still got windows is because of Autocad... other then that I would burn it...01:37
escottcaden_cotard, if you can get a few messages from just before it drops out. next time you see it drop to "dmesg | tail -n 20 > ~/recent_dmesg_logs.txt" and !paste it to us01:37
shinsukecaden_cotard, if nothing helps in the end try a fresh installation instead of upgrades. upgrades can be a source of errors. especially if your old installation was damaged before01:37
Asahinarenancoelho: you can have both windows & ubuntu on the same op01:37

JimmyNeutronkill it? find the process ID and kill that id01:40
Asahina.....grabbing a knife01:40
user99'top' find the process id hit 'k' and give it the pid01:40
t1me10rdlol01:40
escottuser99, odd nothing much going on at that point in the boot. have you checked the ram?01:41
user99escott: uhh the system was running I downloaded the updates...no issues and just for grins and giggles memtest86 worked just fine for about 7 hours01:42
escottuser99, did grub keep the old kernel around from pre-upgrade usually it does01:42
user99escott: tried booting about everything in the list...and there were like 12 and 12 saying rescue...no luck01:43
monster9200os01:43
user99kernel image it wants to load is 2.6.33.33 iirc01:44
escottuser99, that makes very little sense. the initrd free is only a second into the boot, its only started to hand over control to the disk system. it almost has to be a kernel issue. if its not then maybe it is a corrupted filesystem01:44
user99I know...right after it loads the initramfs...then initrd freeing memeory...don't think it sees the fs anymore...was ext3...wondering if the kernel has ext3 support ...but one of the others should have worked...thinking it's the move to grub2 meessed it up01:46
escottuser99, grub is out of the picture, kernel is in full control (although if you did do the grub2 upgrade you need to look at grub.conf not menu.lst for your boot list)01:47
escottuser99, ext3 is still supported (and will be for years). i would fsck all the partitions01:47
user99escott: yeah...I know..and thought it odd that the message said changes to menu.lst and not grub.conf01:48
escottuser99, what kind of graphics card is this?01:48
user99all right I have a wd diags disk let me boot that and check the drive first01:48
escottuser99, maybe its trying to start modesetting and that is hanging the system01:48
user99ati 4200 onboard01:49
caden_cotardif it makes any difference, it always seems to disconnect when I'm streaming video01:49
user99tried nododeset no joy and a bunch of others...01:49
user99*nomodeset01:49
goddardanyone use anjuta?01:49
escottuser99, i dont remember at what point radeonhd got pulled into the kernel it might be 2.6.33 (although my graphics card doesn't get seen until a second after the initrd is freed)01:50
user99but iirc the driver I installed was radeonhd...can't swear to that been a year01:50
escottuser99, can you make an install cd for 10.04 and see if that will boot. it would help identify if it is the 2.6.33 or something particular to your system01:50
user99escott: I can't remember if I installed a 32 bit or 64 bit OS thinking 32 bit since the user is a bit challenged and ther were flash 64 bit issues att the time01:52

wmorriHi, I am having a problem with running sudo apt-get dist-upgrade, it is saying that there isn't any upgrades, but I am running 10.10?02:00

ubottuwmorri: For upgrading, see the instructions at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UpgradeNotes - see also http://www.ubuntu.com/desktop/get-ubuntu/upgrade02:00
coz_wmorri,   well if there are no upgrades then  that's it ...yes?02:00
coz_wmorri,  do you want to upgrade to 11.04?02:00
coz_wmorri,   dist-upgrade will not update the system to the next version , that's not what its for02:01
elz89Does anyone know if 'Parallels Tools' work with Natty? I tried on release, havent looked since...02:01
wmorricoz_: yes I would like to upgrade. I guess that I am using the wrong command then.02:01
szalcoz_: that's exactly what it's originally intended for02:01
escottwmorri, do-release-upgrade will take you to 11.04 the apt terminology gets confusing02:02
coz_szal,  not as long as I have been on linux02:02
szalcoz_: the fact that *buntu does that differently is another thing02:02
coz_szal,  perhaps but this is #ubuntu :)02:02
wmorriescott: thank you so much, I have forgotten my terminoligy. I will go and do it now, thanks again02:02
shinsukewmorri, i recommend a fresh installation because upgrades can be a source of problems02:03

dontworryHello, I recently got my wireless USB (Belkin Basic Wireless USB F7D1011) working on my old kernal 2.6.35-30 but packet injecting was not working, so I compiled the new kernal (3.0.1) and now it will not even detect my USB. Any suggestions?02:03
escottdontworry, you must have missed a driver in your kernel config02:04

urlin2uJohn25, how did you remove it?02:38
coz_achu,  same error?02:38
John25I accidentally uninstalled PulseAudio02:38
achua live cd runs smooth exept 11.0402:38
coz_achu,  how much memory is on that system?02:38
achuyes same error02:38
escottacidrain_, are you familiar with git?02:38
achuxp runs smoothly02:38
urlin2uJohn25, I don't know myself of a way maybe others do the panel ia pretty locked up.02:39
achu768 mb02:39
acidrain_escott, no02:39
John25So what are my choices?02:39
escottacidrain_, create a new user and put their entire home directory into git. then change the theme and see what files get changed. it should point you to exactly what you need to change02:39
acidrain_escott, actually now it will change to any pre installed theme. it just wont do it to my downloaded themes...02:39
coz_achu,  when you start the live cd,, click the keyboard logo at the bottom of the screen to get to a menu..run a memory test  on that system02:39
achu$ what?02:40
achusorry02:40
achu4 whatt?02:40
escottacidrain_, its probably not recognizing the themes in ~/.themes. i think some of this stuff came out a bit half-baked and they may have never hooked up user-themes as those are "not cool" and "not user friendly"02:40
coz_achu,  when the live cd begins,, there is , I believe,  a keyboard logo at the bottom of the screen,, if you click that  a menu should show up with a memory test option02:41
urlin2uJohn25, have you logged out or rebooted since you removed pulse?02:41
John25Yes02:41
achuwhat is the use of it?02:41
John25I even reinstalled it, hoping it would come back.02:41
coz_achu,  to rule out memory problems02:41
urlin2uJohn25, not sure here really, but other may know , also tab nics so we k now who your talking to. ;)02:42
TophenIf any of you guys from some hours ago remember me.02:42
Singhamhi...does anyone know what is power pc and what's its use ?02:42
coz_!who02:42
ubottuAs you can see, this is a large channel. If you're speaking to someone in particular, please put their nickname in what you say (use !tab), or else messages get lost and it becomes confusing :)02:42
urlin2uSingham, apple computers?02:42
coz_Singham,  powerpc from what I know is an older apple/mac machine02:42
achucoz , i tried to install every time it shows i/o error input output error02:42
Topheni've installed ubuntu 1104: EXTERMELY slow boot and flickering errors02:43
TophenI think I've corrupted me ISO :(02:43
John25urlin2u, so what, do I basically have to reinstall the OS or something?02:43
JimmyNeutronhow do you use the !tab?02:43
ObrienDave!tab02:43
ubottuYou can use your <tab> key for autocompletion of nicknames in IRC, as well as for completion of filenames and programs on the command line.02:43
JimmyNeutronI tried !<nick>02:43
achutophen, i also have the same problem02:43
TophenReallu?02:43
JimmyNeutronand hit tab and didnt autofill in the rest of the name02:43
achuyes02:43
TophenLike the windows are flickering and its completely stuffed?02:44
TophenAre you by any chance on a MacBook/02:44
Singhamcoz_ : can I install mac os x lion or snow leoopard in a virtualbox ?02:44
urlin2uJohn25, as  said I don't know I would just chill unless it is a imperative that you can't live without at this second, somebody will probably know something, this is frree help so with that comes a bit oh waiting at times. ;)02:44
escottTophen, flickering windows are usually a compiz issue try metacity --replace02:44
coz_achu,  ok lets try something else,,, did you check the md5sum on the iso before burning it?02:44
achutophen, i had downloaded it from ubuntu site, itworks well with my friends coputer02:45
JimmyNeutron!JimmyNeutron02:45
coz_Singham,  I am not sure,, I would assume so   however,, on an powerpc I am not su re it can handle lion,,02:45
TophenHuh...02:45
achumd5sum what is it?02:45
ObrienDaveachu md5 is a checksum02:45
TophenI guess I'll just install 10.10 off the live CD and then update.02:45
coz_achu,  md5sum is a default install however,, it will check to see if the iso image is ok or corrupted let me get the link hold on02:45
coz_achu,    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuHashes02:46
achuok02:46
wsbl-uhpd651escott: I'm back.  I'm going to reboot - and see if that does the trick.  What did you mean by "magic incantation" ?02:46
achui think iso nay not be wrong02:47
coz_achu,  on that pasge you will a sting of numbers and letters ,,, when you  have the iso downloaded,, open a terminal   cd to the location of the iso and then type    md5sum   ubuntu   and then hit the tab key to complete the iso's  name02:47
achucoz,bcoz i got it by post from ubuntu02:47
coz_achu,  run that and see if the numbers in the terminal match the numbers on that link for the version of ubuntu you download02:47
wsbl-uhpd651escott: Never mind ... it was just a figure of speech, I'm sure.  Rebooting now.  Will let you know if I still have problems - and if so ... I'll get back on ...02:47
coz_achu,  well we are trying to troubleshoot these errors... it could be hardware,, it could be the  iso ,, it could be be compaq being picky  I dont know02:48
achucoz ,ok02:49
skplis there anyway to disable the launcher in ubbuntu 11.0402:50
coz_achu,  the other options is to download either the alternate cd  or the mini cd  ,, the mini is much     smaller and less chance of corruption when downloading02:50
TophenGuys, If I boot off the livecd and install to my usb... will my usb be the boot disk?02:50
achuit shows 94% may be due to the problem of dvd drive but i tested it with my friends showing the same error02:50
coz_skpl,  at this time I dont t hink so,, however in ccsm  Ubuntu Unity plugin , you can set it to autohide02:50
achuiwill it be the problem of my hrd disk?02:50
TophenHm?02:50
user99pfft nothing02:51
coz_achu, ` the same burned live cd on another system with same errors?02:51
achunope02:51
urlin2uTophen, you can put the grub bootloader anywhere.02:51
coz_achu,  so it worked on his system?02:51
achui tried a boot stick too showing same error02:52
achuit works fine in frends com02:52
urlin2uTophen, do you want the usb to boot on it's own?02:52
acidrain_ok can someone send me a theme that they know works for a fact02:52
coz_achu,  ok so it must either be hardware  or compaq silliness02:52
achumy system dont supports7/vista02:53
coz_achu,  download the mini iso and try that,, it is NOT a live cd however  but easy to work with02:53
coz_!mini | achu02:53
ubottuachu: 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/MinimalCD02:53
urlin2ubrb02:53
achuok02:54
achucan i install it?02:54
coz_achu,  it is an install cd   so yes install it02:54
coz_achu,  the mini,,again,, is NOT a live cd it is an install cd02:55
achui once installed lynux thats only 1 lynx distro i was able to install on my comp02:55
coz_achu,  understood,, which linux was that?02:56
achulinux 2.702:56
achui think so02:56
coz_achu,   which distribution?02:56
coz_achu,  debian,, ubuntu,,, gentoo,, suse,, ??02:56

coz_ohhi,  shoot ,, if anyone can they will :)02:57
coz_achu,  ok then maybe debian will work on that system where ubuntu fails ?02:57
ohhihaha ..... T-T02:58
coz_achu,  or try the mini cd which will attempt to install onto that system02:58
achu??02:58
achuok i will try02:58
coz_achu,  cool :)02:58
urlin2uohhi, ask your question?02:59
ohhistartin x ends up in a white screen02:59
achui tried  kubuntu also02:59
urlin2uohhi, what is your graphics card02:59
coz_achu,  this didnt work  I bet02:59
ArcademanIs there any way of changing the Unity theme :)02:59
galamarHello was wondering if someone would know what is wrong with my synaptic, apt-get, and aptitude. Packages that should be there are not there like firefox, and any program that I got from the repos to begin with, if I remove them the won't show up anymore. None of the package managers give any error other than ""Package firefox is not available, but is referred to by another package. This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsol02:59
galamareted, or is only available from another source.  E: Package firefox has no installation candidate"".02:59
achubut showing same error02:59
ohhiati rage i think02:59
coz_Arcademan,  the Launcher or the system theme?03:00
urlin2ugalamar, which ubuntu are you running03:00
galamar10.0403:00
urlin2uohhi, lspci in the terminal will tell you03:00
ArcademanCan I edit the Launcher coz_03:00
szalohhi: don't think, inform yourself -> lspci | grep -i vga03:00
urlin2ugalamar, can you reinstall synaptic from the cli?03:00
szalohhi: also, 'lsb_release -a' please03:01
ohhimust boot first03:01
coz_Arcademan,  not to my knowledge at least not much,, in ccsm under the ubuntu unity plugin there are a few options for chaning its appearance but not themeing it03:01
coz_Arcademan,  if you want to change the system theme try opening    gnome-appearance-properties03:01
ArcademanLet me guess the dock is tied to the laucher :P03:01
galamarurlin2u, If I knew what the cli was I might03:02
coz_Arcademan,  well,, the "dock"  is the launcher if you mean the large dock on the left of the screen03:02
ArcademanYeah any chance of removing it and keeping the top dock?03:02
szalurlin2u: how would that help?03:02
coz_Arcademan,  you mean the top panel at the top of the screen?03:03
ohhimust admit its a old one it takes some time03:03
ArcademanYeah :)03:03
urlin2ugalamar, cli=command line interace=terminal.03:03
PawnStarhi.  i have a problem with ubuntu.  i'm trying to get a printer driver to work, but only morons use ubuntu, and i am not a moron.  can anybody help03:03
urlin2uinterface03:03
coz_Arcademan,  well,, again ,, in ccsm under the Ubuntu Unity plugin,, there is an options to autohide the launcher03:03
acidrain_fixed bitches what get some03:03
ArcademanMay I ask what terminal command :P03:03
robin0800coz_, IN 11.04 you can only use ambiance or radiance but change icons colours and cursors etc03:03
urlin2uszal, they are missing synaptic, seems logical to try a install first.03:04
galamarurlin2u, apt-get install synaptic than?03:04
szalPawnStar: please adjust your attitude..  if only morons use Ubuntu, then we're all morons, and you don't wanna be helped by morons, do you?03:04
coz_Arcademan,  or  log off and after putting in your password,,at the bottom of the screen,, under "Sessions"  choose classic or   classic ( no effects)  this will give  you classic gnome and no large launcher03:04
urlin2ugalamar, yeah, unless szal  has a better idea03:04
PawnStarbut why Ubuntu when Windows is there03:04
coz_Arcademan,   if you have it installed,, in terminal     ccsm03:04
ArcademanI just was wondering if the laucher was removalble that all ;)03:05
coz_Arcademan,  I dont believe so03:05
coz_Arcademan,  unless you log into the classic sessions03:05
ArcademanRight :(03:05
szalPawnStar: then use Windows.03:05
galamarI got my printer working, whose the morons?03:05
escottszal, don't feed the trolls03:05
achucoz_, its only 15 mb03:06
achucoz_ ,its only 15 mb03:06
robin0800Arcademan, no just resize hide mode and translucency03:06
coz_Arcademan,  or as I mentioned...  autohide the launcher03:06
ArcademanIs it 10.04 that uses Gnome Classic :)03:06
watisdishow do i set permissions (or groups to users) on a home directory as to hide it from other users, but allow apache to read from a www directory ?03:06
PawnStarszal:  but then you have the problem03:06
coz_achu,   right the mini is very small and downloads most of the packages from the net03:06
PawnStarlet's all use Windows03:06
seclm193I have established that the cause of my freezes is virtualbox!!03:06
* szal doesn't have problem atm03:07
urlin2uArcademan, it is unity, but 10.04 is gnome203:07
escott!permissions | watisdis03:07
ubottuwatisdis: An explanation of what file permissions are and how they can be manipulated can be found at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/FilePermissions03:07
Arcademan10.04 is LTS :)03:07
ohhiso sory it was ati rage03:07
urlin2uArcademan, Natty has gnome2 sort of it is called classic03:08
coz_ati rage?  wow isnt that an older card?03:08
escottwatisdis, most likely you need to chgrp to www and chmod 750 chmod g+s the folder03:08
* szal is suprised that an ATI Rage will run w/ Linux at all03:08
ohhioh i wrote that before ^^ i thought i wrote something other03:08
ArcademanI just don;t like the dock and I know urlin2u :)03:08
robin0800urlin2u, onercic has gnome its called gnome03:08
ohhiseems so03:09
rwwAll currently released versions of Ubuntu use GNOME 2. 11.10 will use GNOME 3. 11.04 and 11.10 use Unity instead of the GNOME panel interface or GNOME Shell.03:09
szalohhi: my guess is that it's just too low on gfx memory to do anything meaningful03:09
urlin2urobin0800, okay.03:09

escottuser99, http://www.gnu.org/software/grub/manual/html_node/Environment-block.html03:10
user99very little difference between the last two kernel configs...I dunno...at least /home is on a different partition if I have to blow it away03:10
Tophen_Any help?03:10
szalohhi: 'lsb_release -a' please03:10
user99k thx03:10
galamarurlin2u It says synaptic is already at its most current version, but did suggest I run "apt-get autoremove. So I did that. Any further ideas?03:11

ohhicommand not found03:11
stuntmachineIn a networked environment, is there a standard way of syncing your .bashrc across multiple machines?03:11
escottTophen, every install must have a partition that will be "/"03:11
szalohhi: meaning you don't run *buntu on that thing -> end of support03:11
ArcademanMay I ask one last q do you guys ever plan to unlock the top dock to add apps @ things :)03:11
Tophen_Ok, so is that is that like the name or??  How do I fix it?03:12
histostuntmachine: you could rsync it03:12
rwwArcademan: ask #ayatana03:12
YankDownUnderArcademan, If you're using Unity, um, no.03:12
urlin2ugalamar, not really to much missing and problems for me to suggest more.03:12
escottstuntmachine, there are various approaches. some just scp files around. others rsync home directories, some share homes across nfs. i like to put config files in a git repo and check in check out changes03:12
stuntmachinei like the git thing03:12
user99iirc when I booted ubuntu 10.04 it spent about half an hour searching for a network or something before I got a desktop...should just give up and tell the user.03:12
stuntmachinethat sounds really clean03:12
ohhiszel i told before no others could help me besides its the same problem at *buntu03:12
feydwhere is the default session file for GDM?03:13
histostuntmachine: rsync in cron is pretty clean also03:13
szalohhi: no *buntu, no support here, simple as that03:13
stuntmachinersync in cron doesn't have version control03:13
escottfeyd, grep gdm from /etc/passwd it is in gdm03:13

galamarurlin2u, is there a way to easily remove and reinstall my repos back to the defaults?03:13
Tophen_escott?03:14
histoohhi: install a command line ssytem and see if you can get just X working then work from there03:14
escottTophen_, yes?03:14
urlin2ugalamar, why would you want a person who says they are not comfortable help?03:14
Tophen_How do I set it to / ?03:14
szalgalamar: you could try 'sudo apt-get -f install' (with no further arguments)03:14
ohhihisto : u mean typing in xinit ?03:15
escottTophen_, when you partitioned you must have a partition with a mountpoint of "/"03:15
YankDownUnderohhi, "startx"03:15
Tophen_Ok, how do I do that?03:15
ohhiwhite screen as i told03:15
escottTophen_, how did you partition the disk for the install03:16
Tophen_I used disk manager03:16
Tophen_and partitioned 450gb to NTFS03:16
Tophen_and 50gb to ext403:16
Tophen_that's all I know.03:16
user99escott: I seem to remember having to add something to the grub command line to make it boot originally...wonder if I can find it in launchpad03:16
escottuser99, does your original menu.lst still exist03:17
galamarszal, no luck with that it just says that there are 2 packages not upgraded (wine and google-chrome).03:17
user99there is a menu.lst~03:17
user99would that be it?03:17
szalgalamar: then 'sudo apt-get update' and try again03:18
szalgalamar: whatever you were trying to do before, that is03:18
ohhiszal :there is no point in that command it hapens to all distros and i will install ubuntu if i can get it running but its too slow for live using so o try a with a lighter distro for now03:18
escottuser99, good enough its a backup file from something like vim but it should contain the data03:19
escottTophen_, you are getting this error message from the installer right03:20
user99aha...nomce03:20
user99found it03:20
Tophen_escott yeah03:20
user99let's try that03:20
escottTophen, so after you have partitioned you start the installer and you pick the partitions to install to correct03:21
Tophen_Yeh.03:21
Tophen_And I chose my 50gb ext4 partition03:22
Tophen_it's /dev/sdb203:22

Tophen_So if I wanted a boot device...03:30
Tophen_Ahh.03:30
theadminTophen_: Then you'd mount it to /boot03:31
bigtom21485how do i add frostwire to ubuntu 10.10 x64, and am i better just do limewire instead?03:31
Tophen_Ok. Sounds good.03:31

JakeR003how to stop ubuntu from cashing dns names ?03:33
intraderescott, I need help with google chrome configuration restore - I copied .config from saved image to no avail03:33
moparirc_c7sNDi hacked website03:33
wsbl-uhpd651bigtom21485: The problem has to do with fsat.  I edited that file so as to hopefully fix a problem with a flash drive not mounting correctly.  Not it looks for the line 9 there - and it is not there.03:33
wols_JakeR003: it's called the DNS resolver usually. and you cannot disable its caching since any program can and will cache on its own. but I doubt you have disabled DNS unless you tell us what you actually did03:33
theadminrww: Illegal topics do iirc03:33
theadminrww: But okay03:33
bigtom21485so a stock ubuntu setup on a ssd won't work?03:34
escottintrader, chrome? like chrome book?03:34
phiVanyone else having trouble installing haskell-platform in ubuntu 11.04?03:34
theadminbigtom21485: How so? Should work... if there's enough space03:34
JakeR003wols the ipv4 is set to manual and i don't want ubuntu to contact a dns server03:34
intraderescott, google  browser03:34
bigtom21485wsbl-uhpd651: so you put in an ssd and it didn't see it?03:34
wols_JakeR003: cat /etc/resolv.conf  I am still waiting for an answer03:34
JakeR003but it cached older requests and it still access sites even without DNS server03:34
Tophen_wols_, So should I have one partition at 20gb in ext4 for /boot, 50gb in ext4 for / and 430gb for NTFS?03:34
JakeR003ok so how can i stop it from doing that in the future if i add dns server to it03:35
bigtom21485wsbl-uhpd651: or you mean a thumb drive (flash memory in a keychain)?03:35
wols_Tophen_: no03:35
ohhiso its running, ubuntu and quiet fast  too thx for nothing -.-03:35
theadminTophen_: Um, 10gb for /boot should be plenty03:35
JakeR003stop it from putting the resolved sites to that resolv.conf03:35
Tophen_OK. SO 3 partitions?03:35
escottintrader, no idea sorry03:35
theadminTophen_: 3, you may also want a separate /home03:35
wols_Tophen_: you should have a single partition / with maximum of ~50GB, and rest NTFS. install your ubuntu already and stop pestering people endlessly03:35
theadminTophen_: I strongly recommend that03:35
theadminwols_: Hey that's not nice03:35
Tophen_Alrighty :)03:35
wsbl-uhpd651bigtom21485: right.  I then I was told to take the UUID of the flash drive out of /etc/fsat.  So I removed all of line 9.  Now my computer won't boot up into Ubuntu properly - and gives me a mounting error - because it is looking for that line 9 in fsat (a major system file) which is no longer there ...03:36
sessiondoes anyone know how to get gps working on ubuntu?03:36
Tophen_Nah it's cool I've been bothering everyone for ages with stupid errors.03:36
Tophen_But now I should be done.03:36
wsbl-uhpd651bigtom21485: So how do I recover this and restore fsat to its original state?03:36
theadminwsbl-uhpd651: Sorry, do you mean /etc/fstab?03:36
wols_theadmin: I'm not here to be "nice". I'm here to help people to actually solve people's problems. asking on irc the same shit time and again won't help.03:36
Tophen_ONE more thing. How will I boot with no /boot partition?03:36
intraderAnyone, after a disastrous failed upgrade to 11.04 and revert to 10.10, I need to restore google browser and tomboy03:36
theadminwols_: Then don't help them.03:36
wsbl-uhpd651theadmin: yes, I mean "fstab", sorry ...03:36
theadminTophen_: Uhm, you don't really need /boot to be on a separate partition03:37
theadminTophen_: If it's not, it's just a folder on /03:37
h00kwols_: it's great you help, but please mind the language (you've been asked before, as well)03:37
wsbl-uhpd651bigtom21485: sorry, I mean the file name to be "fstab" ...03:37
bigtom21485wsbl-uhpd651: i apoligize, that's beyond my level of knowledge. i would check forums and other chat room if someone in here can't help you.03:37
Tophen_Oh.. right.03:37
Tophen_Thanks everyone, sorry for the troubles :)03:37
robin0800Tophen, unless you are doing something unusual you don't need a separate boot partition these days realy just / and /home03:37
szalohhi: most probable explanation is lack of VRAM03:37
wols_h00k: and I've told you before what useless waste of bandwith you are. help people instead.03:37
JakeR003guys.. 1 last question03:37
JakeR003how to slim the size of ubuntu? reduce it03:38
sessionlol03:38
sessionuseless waste of bandwidth03:38
theadminJakeR003: Sorry, um, lolwut? Uninstall some apps?03:38
wsbl-uhpd651theadmin: can you help me recover - and boot up properly again?03:38
JakeR003yeah but that takes forever03:38
bigtom21485wsbl-uhpd651: give me a minute i'll try and help you, this way ill know how to set up an ssd in ubuntu when the time comes03:38
theadminwsbl-uhpd651: I think... could be...03:38
bigtom21485wsbl-uhpd651 ;-)03:38
urlin2uit is officially the ocd hour. ;)03:38
theadminwsbl-uhpd651: Let me think. Add "init=/bin/bash" to the kernel line.03:38
bigtom21485wsbl-uhpd651: which version are you running and are you x86 or x64?03:39
ohhiwell games and video seem to run so i dont think so03:39
wsbl-uhpd651theadmin: it is currently running a maintenance shell - and is not fully booted into Ubuntu ...03:39
Tophen_wols_, well, after all that, I'm doing it.03:39
theadminwsbl-uhpd651: Check your fstab again then03:39
Tophen_Thanks much guys :)03:39
theadminwsbl-uhpd651: Make sure it's not containing any weird things03:39
bigtom21485wsbl-uhpd651: if we can find a way to edit stuff without booting ubuntu that should help you :-)03:39
wsbl-uhpd651bigtom21485: ummm ... I think it's x64?  I'm running 11.04, if that helps ...03:39
theadminbigtom21485: We can always boot without mounting other devices.03:39
yokobrhi guys...03:40
theadminbigtom21485: init handles that, so if we avoid init... ;)03:40
wsbl-uhpd651bigtom21485: yes, that is what I need ... because I currently cannot boot into Ubuntu ...03:40
bigtom21485wsbl-uhpd651: is the ssd your only drive?03:40
szalohhi: that card can't have more than 8 MB of RAM, and according to my calculation a screen image of 1024x768 w/ 16bit colour depth (262k colours) will already need 12 MB03:40
ohhianyway by guys03:40
yokobrdoes anybody know how to make a gma 950 graphic card don`t suck that much?03:41
Tophen_NO!03:41
Tophen_ubi-usersetup crashed!03:41
ohhibut it runs now >_<03:41
wsbl-uhpd651bigtom21485: what do you mean by "ssd".  Last time I reformatted (which was recently), I installed the previous version before 11.04 first - and then upgraded to 11.04 via the update manager.  So it could be partitioned between the two versions ...03:41
Tophen_exit code 1... goddamnit03:41
wsbl-uhpd651bigtom21485: probably is ...03:41
bigtom21485wsbl-uhpd651: solid state drive. a hard drive based solely on flash memory instead of magnetic platters like a traditional hard drive.03:41
V13AxelIs there a way to theme the console program known as Finch?03:41
theadminTophen_: Happens. Just repeat everything how you did before03:42
Tophen_ok.03:42
theadminV13Axel: How can you "theme" console programs?03:42
Tophen_so cancel and retry?03:42
theadminV13Axel: Also, finch rules xD03:42
theadminTophen_: Yeah03:42
ohhiwith some ubuntu deverate called bodhi03:42
wsbl-uhpd651bigtom21485: does it take a while for this maintenance shell to finish - because currently I just have a black screen ...03:42
Tophen_Got it.03:42
V13Axeltheadmin: Chaning the colors of different parts of it. Ever used MOCP music player? It supports themes.03:42
theadmin!derivatives | ohhi03:42
ubottuohhi: There are some Ubuntu derivatives that we cannot provide support for due to repository and software changes. Please consult their websites for more information.

bigtom21485wsbl-uhpd651: ive never had more than one version of ubuntu and when i had a partition it was during my transition from windows to ubuntu which as you can imagine only lasted a short time 8-)03:42
theadminV13Axel: Hm, honestly... I dunno. Because I also use Windows, I prefer Pidgin over Finch so...03:42
bigtom21485wsbl-uhpd651: which version are you trying to boot?03:43
twister004hi guys... I am trying to use a USB device to connect to the internet via my ubuntu 10.04 laptop... the device is not detected until I manually reboot the laptop with the USB still connected to it... could someone help?03:43
wsbl-uhpd651bigtom21485: yeah.  makes sense.  should i just do yet another hard restart?03:43
V13Axeltheadmin: I'm currently using a headless server via SSH, and I prefer to use commandline programs.03:43
theadminV13Axel: Makes perfect sense hehe :D03:43
wsbl-uhpd651theadmin: do you have any other input?03:43
theadminwsbl-uhpd651: Sorry, I lost you there03:43
theadminwsbl-uhpd651: Well, um... Trough the recovery shell, can you make sure /etc/fstab is normal?03:43
ArcademanMay I ask what channels are you guys all listed in03:44
theadminArcademan: /whois would tell you that about a certain person03:44
qinV13Axel: You could try irssi with bitlbee.03:44
wsbl-uhpd651theadmin: fstab is not normal.  This is why I am having problems.  Someone on here previously told me to edit it - and I should have never done that ...03:44
th0rArcademan: ABC, NBC, and FOX03:44
bigtom21485wsbl-uhpd651: no, you can use both. although my preference is 10.10 because unity frustrates me, its not my place to make the choice for you.03:44
theadminArcademan: Try /whois theadmin03:44
theadminwsbl-uhpd651: No, it's okay to edit fstab...03:44
wsbl-uhpd651theadmin: I don't know how I would check fstab anyway without being able to boot into Ubuntu ...03:45
Arcademanrolf I meant the Ubuntu list like #unbutu-desktop ect03:45
theadminwsbl-uhpd651: Make sure line 9 doesn't exist at all. Empty line won't do, I think03:45
theadminArcademan: Ah.03:45
theadminArcademan: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/IRC/ChannelList03:45
wsbl-uhpd651theadmin: Ok.  That is a relieve.  what do you think?  Should I just wait for this maintenance shell to finish or do a hard restart ...03:45
bigtom21485wsbl-uhpd651: did you catch my message wabout what an "ssd" is?03:45
theadminwsbl-uhpd651: Um, do it with the maintenace shell...03:46
wsbl-uhpd651bigtom21485: yes, thank you :)03:46
theadminwsbl-uhpd651: Try this: nano /etc/fstab03:46
qin!elis > qin03:46
bigtom21485wsbl-uhpd651: okay i have several computers with ubuntu so im gunna walk you through this by doing it myself03:46
Tophen_theadmin, it did it again!03:46
Tophen_should i scrnshot?03:47
Arcademanty theadmin03:47
theadminTophen_: Wow, now this sucks... You could, altough I don't think that could help me03:47
Tophen_ok...03:47
Tophen_Ill retry and tell you my steps.03:47
theadminTophen_: It'd be better to switch to PM in my opinion, cause it seems everyone is tired of you -- idk03:47
wsbl-uhpd651theadmin: OK - I have fstab up.  I don't think line 9 is there at all.  I forgot that I am now pretty much in a pre-boot Terminal window ... and can still run commands ...03:47
Tophen_Yeahhh..03:47
theadminwsbl-uhpd651: lol :D03:48
bigtom21485how do i open a tty without booting ubuntu?03:48
wsbl-uhpd651theadmin: sorry ... I know ... that is the best way I can describe it.  Kinda rough language ...03:48
theadminwsbl-uhpd651: I understand it lol03:48
theadminbigtom21485: Add "init=/bin/bash" to your kernel line03:49
bigtom21485theadmin: what baout temporarily?03:49
theadminbigtom21485: Um, do it trough the GRUB menu03:49
wsbl-uhpd651bigtom21485: thanks for your help ... I'm waiting for your instructions.  What commands do I run to recover this whole situation and restore fstab to its original state?03:49
theadminbigtom21485: Then it won't be permanent03:49

theadminwsbl-uhpd651: I guess if you modified it, yes03:52
wsbl-uhpd651theadmin: bigtom21485 has left the room.  I guess that leaves you and me.  Can you walk me through the recovery process?03:53
theadminwsbl-uhpd651: If only I'd know your fstab contents03:53
wsbl-uhpd651theadmin: OK.  Isn't there a way to restore it - or somehow grab a default copy by running commands?03:54
=== hamnegga is now known as mcurran
theadminwsbl-uhpd651: There is no such thing as a default copy, cause it all depends on your device configuration03:55

ram0042twister004: you have to find out what driver you are using, i forget the command for that04:10
SeeknDestroywsbl... no utility to automatically recreate it... going to have to use LiveCD... mount your root partition... use fdisk -l to list partitions... look at some fstab examples online... and try your best to edit it back to a usable setting04:10

Renegade_yeah it is capable04:13
wsbl-uhpd651urlin2u: OK.  I copied the Ubuntu image (for 11.04 and the previous version) to a CD in case I ever had to re-install.  This is not the same as the live CD, right?04:13

somsipRenegade_: there is very little software that is not supported now. You might have to fiddle with Skype and flashplugin, but that may be all.04:13

urlin2uwsbl-uhpd651, a live cd to access the fstab file take your pick about 300 distros out there.04:13

noneabove1182no one have any idea whats going on or just no one looking ? lmao04:44
zykotick9urlin2u, i don't understand your question.  you can use "sudo mount -a" to mount everything listed in fstab, or "sudo nano /etc/fstab" to edit fstab04:44
wsbl-uhpd651urlin2u: OK, I have the URL for pastebin.  So never mind.  Here I go ...04:45

urlin2uzykotick9, that will do it I think I rarely have to get to the OS via a live cd so I haven't really learned any mounting for edit if needed.\04:46
noneabove1182hello?????04:46
noneabove1182:/04:46
zykotick9urlin2u, oh to mount / you need to use something like "sudo mount /dev/sda1 /mnt" then "sudo nano /mnt/etc/fstab" sorta thing04:46

grynoneabove1182: if you ask your question on one line, it would help a lot04:49
wsbl-uhpd651urlin2u: OK.  I am running "sudo blkid" and looking at the fstab file.  Neither output looks like what I had before, though ...04:49
noneabove1182gry, well i was just hoping to get a REPLY lol, thanks for at least sayings something04:49
urlin2uwsbl-uhpd651, here is my fstab that may be all you need notice the posts by zykotick9 to mount for read and write of fstab   http://paste.ubuntu.com/662347/04:49
noneabove1182gry, well i said my ubuntu was failing to load then linked pictures of the screen i get when that happens04:49
grynoneabove1182: ok what you have is a kernel crash. Do you have version details? Does it happen every time?04:50
zykotick9urlin2u, FYI you really shouldn't have two entries for / in your fstab04:51
gryhttp://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/193/imag0409q.jpg/ is a good image for the thing04:51
noneabove1182gry,  its the newest stuff, i just installed via WUBI.exe, and it doesnt happen EVERY time it seems, just most of the time and once in awhile for no reason (it seems) it works, but on reboot again fails04:51
zykotick9urlin2u, you can use the command "sudo blkid" to find out which of your UUIDs is invalid04:51
noneabove1182gry, and it always seems to work each time i install it fresh but the second i reboot, again same error over and over04:52
wsbl-uhpd651zykotick9: OK, I'll be working with you then ... it looks like ...04:52
wsbl-uhpd651urlin2u: You have sda5 on line 9.  I had sda1 on that line ... and I don't know if the UUID is going to be same ...04:52
grynoneabove1182: so the question is 'wubi latest version, kernel crash on all reboots after a fresh install, http://img193.imageshack.us/img193/6128/imag0409q.jpg'04:53
zykotick9wsbl-uhpd651, the UUIDs will NOT be the same!04:53

noneabove1182gry just curious if i should make a forum post04:54

wsbl-uhpd651zykotick9: OK.  thanks for the info.  here is my pastebin: http://paste.ubuntu.com/662350/04:54
zykotick9urlin2u, i'd guess that would cause a pause during your boot process, while it looks for that drive, then should fail and continue booting04:54

pp7was wondering if its been ported to any other distro05:07
pp7as chromebook *afaik* runs linux05:07
wsbl-uhpd651urlin2u: OK.  Let's try this.  So if I mount with this command - the fstab will be automatically changed?  Sorry for my ignorance.  I am learning well ...05:07

linuxrealmJarred: honestly, and i havent used 11.x yet, but i hear its really kid friendly and doesnt have much to view, unless you work in the cmdline. im highly doubt i will switch from 10.04 LTS anytime soon. example, i advised a user to goto file menu, and they got upset that there wasn't anything i described to them there,,, as if it was just removed, things that are important. my suggestion, get off 11.x desktop if your new to linu05:52
JarredI'm not05:52
JarredI'm not at all05:52
linuxrealmno offense, really05:53

glassresistorand hit f10 becauase cntl+x doesn't work06:27
fr500Trex: if you have 10mbps ethernet then 10mbos is your limit, not likely you'r wifi will get even close to 54mbps06:27
urlin2uwsbl-uhpd651, all  can really say here, is that the live cd and getting the correct fstab, not the cd's opened with read and write access is your best answer. you might just consider pulling out whay=t you need and reinstalling or installing another linux next to it and getting there that way.06:27

Metaxalunnainn: at the end of that line, what you are reporting is resolution read the end of that line it gives a physical description of the screen06:51
Metaxalunnainn: in millimeters06:51
lunnainn"default connected 1366x768+0+0 0mm 0mm"06:52
lunnainnthat's what I get06:52
Flannelzabomber: Can you commit to it via apache with the normal svn client?06:52
SatanHimself"Satan wants to install Ubuntu on friend's personal Macbook for pernicious purposes."06:52
fr500glassresistor: i read about that error06:52
fr500seems you erased your whole ubuntu installation06:52
fr500try to reinstall06:52
Flannelzabomber: Also, those errors would be in the apache errors, /var/log/apache2/ (probably error.log, if it's actually an error)06:53
Metaxalunnainn: That ending part where it says 0mm x 0mm means that it reads your screen being physically that size, which relates into no screen to display stuff06:53
lunnainnthat's...06:53
lunnainnawesome. I've got no screen, according to that?06:53
lunnainnsimply awesome06:53
Metaxalunnainn: you have a screen it is just 0x0 deminsions, I'm trying to find the command to change that06:54
zabomberFlannel: i'm not really interested in the SVN part.. more the webdav part, but ill use an SVN tool to see if i can checkout. Kudos for the log pointers06:54
Metaxalunnainn: I tried changing it manually but it does not seem to stick. So I came on here to see if anyone else has an idea on what to do06:55
Flannelzabomber: checkout and commit.  Since it might be www-data having write issues06:55
glassresistorfr500: i haven;t installed im trying to install, its not even loading the installer06:55
lunnainnMetaxa: I know this is kinda egocentrical of me, but I hope you find out how to work it! :)06:56
lunnainnthen you can post it somewhere so I can find, so I dont have to do the digging myself ;)06:56
Flannelzabomber: This would be through the http/https URL for svn, if I wasn't clear.06:56
Metaxalunnainn: me too, I'm trying to get this laptop I found in the trash working so I can donate it to someone in need.06:56
lunnainnMetaxa: If I were you, I'd probably just put something else on there, like maverick06:57
zabomberFlannel: thanks mate. I'll attempt to check in and checkout using http://06:57
glassresistori have the grub.cnf on my flash drive how should i change it to avoid the prefix error06:57

lunnainnanyway, thanks for the help, Metaxa. bummer I couldn't be of any help myself06:58
LafiirWhen I was installing Ubuntu with an encrypted home folder, it said something about saving a key or so at first boot, which I skipped. Now that I am more familiar with Ubuntu, I want to do whatever that was.06:58

llutz_wsbl-uhpd651: just try it, boot live-cd, mount your /-filesystem07:11

llutz_subone: really? i always thought the order of options doesn't matter...07:52
wsbl-uhpd651I need to mount /dev/sda1, I believe ...07:52
sudokillwsbl-uhpd651- you dont need to chroot your only editing a file07:52
wsbl-uhpd651ram0042: I need to mount /dev/sda1, I believe ...07:52
ram0042wsbl-uhpd651: is that your drive with the fstab file?07:52
wsbl-uhpd651ram0042: yes.07:53
ram0042wsbl-uhpd651: alright "sudo chroot /dev/sda1" then you cd to /etc07:53
qinstephenthemartyr: In /var/: sudo du -sh * (just tell me what take place, apart of /lib)07:53
wsbl-uhpd651ram0042: when I enter "sudo chroot /dev/sda107:55
wsbl-uhpd651ram0042: ... it tells me "not a directory" ...07:55
icerootwsbl-uhpd651: /dev/sda1 is a device/partition not a directoy07:55
llutz_you cannot chroot into a block-device, you have to mount it before07:55
WaltherFIwsbl-uhpd651: you should mount the /dev/sda1 somewhere and then chroot there07:55
icerootwsbl-uhpd651: first you have to mount /dev/sda107:55
qinstephenthemartyr: Can you also paste: sudo du -sh /*07:56
sudokillwsbl-uhpd651- chroot the mount point07:56
sudokillsay sda1 is on /mnt/ubuntu07:56
wsbl-uhpd651ram0042: Ok - so that must be my USB drive ...07:56

icerootjita: /etc/mysql/my.cnf does not exists?07:57
jitaiceroot: it does07:58
icerootjita: so what is the problem?07:58
sudokillwsbl-uhpd651- you dont need to chroot though. just cd into the mount point and use nano on the file07:58
wsbl-uhpd651sudokill: I am currently root.  every time I try "chroot ..." it tells me I cannot change root directory to /dev/sda1 or /mnt/ubuntu: no such file or directory ...07:58
jitaiceroot: mysql_config not found07:59
jitaiceroot: the command07:59
sudokillwsbl-uhpd651- its probably not mounted on /mnt/ubuntu07:59
sudokillwsbl-uhpd651- run the command mount and see where /dev/sda1 is mounted07:59
ram0042wsbl-uhpd651: go use the disk utility and figure out the location07:59

wsbl-uhpd651sudokill: it tells me "/dev/sda1 on / type ext4"08:01
qinstephenthemartyr: Maybe postfix, sudo du -sh /var/post*08:02

qinstephenthemartyr: Not sure about your terminal issue.08:03
wsbl-uhpd651sudokill: I am not booted into Ubuntu because of this messed up fstab - which generates a mounting error upon boot up.  Can you direct me to fixing this error if I use a 9.10 live CD?08:03
sudokillwsbl-uhpd651- if youre not booted into ubuntu what are you using for these commands?08:03
auronandacestephenthemartyr: output keeps disappearing? can you scroll up in the terminal?08:03
sudokillwsbl-uhpd651- using a livecd is easy08:04

stephenthemartyr<qin>am i doing that at my / or still /var?08:04
wsbl-uhpd651OK, so I'll attempt to boot into Ubuntu 9.10 via its live CD ... and then you can help me clear it up?08:04
icerootjita: why not installing mysql-python from the repos?08:04
sudokillyes08:04
sudokillwsbl-uhpd651- go into livecd and itll be easy08:05

auronandacestephenthemartyr: whatever output you are trying to catch do this: command | less (eg. ps aux | less)08:06
wsbl-uhpd651sudokill: I thought I can't access this original fstab via the live CD of an older version?08:06
sudokillwsbl-uhpd651- it doesnt matter at all its just a text file08:06
qinstephenthemartyr: /var/backup is your problem, cd /var/backup && ls08:06
stephenthemartyr&&ls?08:06
stephenthemartyrcan i delete that?08:07
qinstephenthemartyr: No, && ls08:07

qingigenieks: ---------- size user group time file08:54
richtroyegigenieks For GROUP you can use any of the groupnames in /etc/group.  for USER you can use any of the userids in /etc/passwd08:55
HazLTi have a problem: when connecting to the internet with wireless adapter (D-Link DWA-125) i connect to the internet with no problem, i can browse, but after 10-15 minutes connection lost. Even then i restart my pc, i can't connect anymore. The only solution is to restart a router. So i guess the problem is in router. P.S. there is no problem on Windows 7 and everything fine then i connect through ethernet connection. I have Ubuntu 11.04. Can someone08:56
stephenthemartyr<qin>im sorry but how do i check that?08:56
gigenieksjrib: command would be "sudo chown -R gigenieks:gigenieks /home/gigenieks/Documents/"copy of Info""?08:56
gigenieksit would change user ownership: gigenieks and group ownership: gigenieks right?08:56

stephenthemartyr<qin>ryslog and tar09:10
SeeknDestroyHazLT.... you're trying to summarize it into one line and you're not making sense... it sounds like you're saying your internet works fine in W7 but on a wired connection (not wireless)... why you tossed the wired ethernet into the wifi problem mix makes no sense at all09:10
qinstephenthemartyr: tar is ok, rsyslog even more ok09:11
kakashi_jrib: nope, nothing wrong there, LD_PRELOAD and LD_LIBRARY_PATH is empty, the worst thing is I am getting a problem even with vim - http://pastie.org/234947009:11

stephenthemartyr<qin>not finding a man sbackup09:11
SeeknDestroyHazLT.... Google for "Ubuntu DWA-125" and see if others out there have any problems with that specific model... sometimes a driver update helps... other times the opensource driver is unstable and they recommend to use ndiswrapper to "wrap" the windows version of the driver... do some research on google09:11
qinstephenthemartyr: man sbackups ?09:12
HazLTSeeknDestroy: ok, thanks09:12

llutz_simmouk87: so "current directory" is empty09:21

jribkakashi_: that's right... but if you extract the .so from that deb package you will see the md5sum is different... I'm pretty sure dpkg should be replacing your existing .so...09:30
kakashi_jrib: in that case, I will rm -fr .so from the existing stuff09:31
llutz_marlun: should be something like "ssh -L 3307:workstation:3306 user@mysqlhost"09:31

qinstephenthemartyr: df -h09:53
SeeknDestroyJakeR003... basically, if you're wanting to turn off the basic smoothing/fade effect/animation... your system prolly has a slower cpu or an older graphics card.... you'd prolly be better off in that situation to turn the visual effects off completely via that visual effects/none setting09:53

OneUniqueGeekHow would I update PHPmyAdmin? I don't see the directory in /var/www.10:05

auronandace!latest | OneUniqueGeek10:06
ubottuOneUniqueGeek: 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. See also !backports, !sru, and !ppa.10:06
gryOneUniqueGeek: Instal a new debian package from their website, then, even if it's not in the repo.10:06
JakeR003yes that one. thanks again SeeknDestroy10:07
JakeR003so.. unticking the box will stop the service from loading?10:07
SeeknDestroyJakeR003 : As I was saying earlier... if you found the need to turn off the basic Compiz animation on window open (Fade)... your system probably has a low-spec video card, and you'd benefit from turning compiz off completely (System/Preferences/Appearance-->Visual Effects-->None).... which reverts your window manager to the default Metacity that qin suggested10:07
SeeknDestroyJakeR003 : Yes on the untick10:08
OneUniqueGeekWell, Where is the directory where all the PHPmyAdmin PHP files are?10:08
JakeR003SeeknDestroy yeah i turned off the animation and everythign seems faster than windows10:08
gryOneUniqueGeek: You don't need to use it manually.10:08
llutz_OneUniqueGeek: try /usr/share/phpmyadmin10:08
JakeR003SeeknDestroy what happen if i remove the service? without unticking the box..10:09
OneUniqueGeekllutz_ - It worked, Thank you.10:09
SeeknDestroyJakeR003 : That's just one graphical effect that you don't need.... turning the visual effects off completely halts compiz from loading completely and will give you additional performance.... and you shouldn't completely remove the services... just uncheck the boxes... much harder to readd it if you need it at later date10:09

JakeR003you know i was looking for windows XP because it runs better on older hardware.. takes 512MB of RAM while vista/win7 need at least 4GB of RAM10:15

NameLess-exehello, if i leave say 4gb free for a swap during the windows partiion, and create it when i install ubuntu, will it kill the other partitions?10:17
JakeR003why ubuntu takes 200MB of RAM and few kilobytes of swap file?10:17
JakeR003vista takes 4GB of RAM " cached " and near 900MB of pagefile10:18
SeeknDestroyJakeR003 : cuz it's a much more efficient OS... all there is to it10:18
JakeR003that's at start up only.. later it takes more10:18
cjsNameLess-exe: You mean in the DOS partition table? The Ubuntu installer will not destroy partitions so long as you chose manual partitioning mode and don't ask for them to be deleted.10:18
forkupactually M$ intentionally uses more ram on win7, their thinking is unused ram is wasted :)10:19
SeeknDestroyNameLess-exe : Why would creating it later kill other partitions?  You were just in windows asking about all this... and you screwed things up once already...

Sidewinder1jack--, :-)10:37
shomonasdaw, I don't know but you could just download it and compile it somewhere locally10:38

shomonas in not as part of the system10:38
IdleOne!grub2 | WaltherFI10:38
ubottuWaltherFI: GRUB2 is the default Ubuntu boot manager since 9.10 (Karmic). Lost GRUB after installing Windows? See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RestoreGrub - For more information and troubleshooting for GRUB2 please refer to https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Grub2 - See !grub1 for releases before Karmic (9.10)10:38
shomonthen you'd have 2 separate gccs, so most things can use the new one.10:38
asdawyea shomon i considered that. i just that there was a quicker way to do it and simply set an alias like - alias g3="gcc-3.3"10:39
asdawthought that*10:39
shomonwhat's it for?10:39
asdawi need to use 3.3 as part of an assignment im doing. the lecturer is specific that it must be compiled using 3.310:40
shomonaaah okay10:41
shomonyeah just install it in your home dir. compiling it and installing it probably *is* the lesson..10:41
WaltherFIIdleOne: Proceeded to the grub reinstall with boot-repair. There's no option Windows on the "Os to boot by default"10:42

Sidewinder1spexi, I don't think "cloning" will achieve your goals; it'll 'remember' UUIDs in some config files and may cause problems. What you need to do is partition your drives, clean install the ubuntu version of your choice, then copy your "Home" directory from your original install to the new one.11:15
JakeR003the ubuntu network proxy settings apply automically to everyting on the system?11:15

floreshi folks, I think I have a very useful information for Ubuntu users, I have bougt a brand new acer aspire 5250, on which I tried to install ubuntu 11.04, and upon boot I just got a screen freezed. The strange behaviur was that if I was connect to a network cable, it was totally nice, but as soon as i unplugged the cable i hung, and i had to force shutdown, and could not reboot. The solution I have found was to configure the laptop to try fi11:34
sim-valueIdleOne, does Unetbootin support 11.04? only 10.04 is listed11:34
jribflores: you may as well finish since I imagine a very frustrated googler if you don't but this isn't the right place for this.  Use bugs.ubuntu.com if it is a bug or put it up on help.ubuntu.com/community somewhere11:35
dr_willissim-value,  check unetbootin homepage for newer versions. Or the Pendrivelinux tools for other similer tools.11:35
IdleOnesim-value: it should11:35
IdleOnealso see what dr_willis said11:35
suppoahow do I make it so when I boot up, it has a multiuser interface and I am forced to log in by inserting my keyring password11:36
dr_willissim-value,  I think it should also work for slightly newer versions. its doing the same basic operations for them all.11:36
jribflores: your message was truncated at "the laptop to try fi"11:36
dr_willissuppoa,  'multiuser interface'?  System normally boots to the GDM login, or auto logins. keyring is asked for when the user logs in.11:36
dr_willisor autologsin - if the keyring is set to have a password.11:37
suppoadr_willis how do I change it so it doesnt auto login and asks for my password11:37
dr_willissuppoa,  its in the Login settings somewhere..  under GDM or Login,11:38
floresjrib: hi ok, but what you mean with "frustrated googler"?11:38
dr_willisI dont have the menus menoriuzed any more. :)11:38
jribflores: these channels are logged so someone with the same problem will probably find this log now11:38
jribflores: but since your message was truncated before you gave the solution, the person googling will likely be frustrated (hi googler)11:39

jribbullgard4_: no,  you don't need both.  But the reason you have both is because you have the corresponding metapackage installed for both -generic and -server.  You likely just want to choose the kernel you want to run and stick with that (remove either the metapackage for -server or -generic)11:58

usr13klawd: You said the "led indicator on the back does not light up"  What is that?13:47
ActionParsnipklawd: check the cable is inserted properly, also try a different port on the device you are connecting to13:47
dr_willisNitax,  could be anywhere. You just mount it someplace everyone knows about..13:47
usr13klawd: Is this a laptop?13:47
ActionParsnipusr13: Ethernet ports usually have LEDs round the port to show connection and activity13:48
dr_willisNitax,  you could put it in /commonfiles/  if you wanted to.13:48

ActionParsnipklawd: give it time...13:52
dr_willisIsmail,  you basically reinstall grub to the mbr... thats the core of it.13:52

dr_willis$ grub-install /dev/XXX13:53
dr_willishttps://help.ubuntu.com/community/Grub2#Reinstalling GRUB213:54
AdvoWorkjrib, i didnt see it, sorry, would you mind repeating please?13:54
dr_willisOh cool a 'new' way to repair grub --> https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Boot-Repair13:55
klawdActionParsnip: there's nothing. i tried a all the available output methods and they all showed.. nothing.13:55
ooxiho can i give dd an input file an tell it, if it reaches the end of the input file, to start over from the beginning?13:55
ooxi*how13:55
jribAdvoWork: in system -> preferences -> keyboards options -> layout -> options  you can set a compose key and 3rd level chooser.  See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ComposeKey .  Personally I find having my menu key act as the compose key effective for me though I do not type accents very often.  The way it works (more details in wiki) compose key + '  (release both keys), then press e, produces: é13:55
dr_willisooxi,  given how basic of a tool dd is.. i doubt if dd can handle that by itself..  why are you even needing to do this?13:56
fabshi13:57
theadminooxi: while true ; do dd if=... ; done ?13:57
theadminooxi: idk, could work :D13:57
ActionParsnipklawd: the device name should show. If you run:  sudo rfkill list    is the device blocked13:57
ooxidr_willis, or some other tool. i want to write data to a disk which is not zero (because i think the ssd will recognize it and handle it different)13:57
bullgard4_jrib: This site: http://wiki.ubuntuusers.de/grub_2 is easier to digest for me.13:57
ooxitheadmin, don't, think so, will start over at the beginn of the output file, too13:57
theadminooxi: Oh yeah...13:57
AdvoWorkjrib, that may work, do you know of a sort of cheat sheet for the certain accents/foreign letters, if you get me?13:57
ActionParsnipooxi: then you can use /dev/random13:58
belgianguyis there a tool to find out what copy protection is present on a cd from within Ubuntu?13:58
iridiumooxi, maybe youre looking for /dev/urandom output13:58
belgianguy(within my legal rights)13:58
iridiumit outputs random (not zero)13:59
ooxiActionParsnip, i thought about using /dev/urandom but my cpu can only generate like 7MiB/sec which will take ages :-/13:59
ooxisomething like /dev/one would be ideal ^^13:59
jribbullgard4_: whatever works :)14:00
jribAdvoWork: that wiki page seems to have one of sorts14:00
ActionParsnipooxi: it'll work though, that's all I know. Let me search. I found a page yesterday14:00
escottooxi, entropy is not cpu bound so much as interrupt bound. you can just mash on the keyboard and usually get the entropy moving again14:00
z80returnhello14:01
ooxiActionParsnip, what would be great :-)14:01
ActionParsnipooxi: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dd_(Unix)   may give clues14:01
ooxiescott, afaik urandom (instead of random) is cpu bound14:01
Sidewinder1belgianguy, Perhaps this is what you're looking for? http://www.softpedia.com/get/CD-DVD-Tools/CD-DVD-Images-Utils/ClonyXXL.shtml14:01
ActionParsnipooxi: I'd go with random though, shouldn't take too long14:01
escottooxi, another approach that works well is to take a file and encrypt it with gpg -c with a random work, cat it together and repeat14:01

neocicakhi ... has anyone else had a problem while installing 11.04. ? the installer crashed right at the start, while trying to copy files.. i have tested my drive (running badblocks from command line, and there was no error reported)14:07
jribneocicak: first step is to checksum the cd14:07
escottno-name-, its probing various low level registers on the system because there is no interface to these sensors. it could reformat your harddrive. it could fry your video card. it could cause your bios to send threatening emails to the president. it could trigger the launch of nuclear weapons. but it is more likely to lock up the box, and most likely to do nothing. with some research you can identify what kind of sensors you have without14:08

h00kzkam: you don't need a persistence file at all, if you don't want. as big as you'd like, I'm pretty sure.14:37

zkamideally, I want to be able to boot from USB drive, and also have extra space on that drive for Windows files14:38
dr_willisGoliath:  see what i said above14:38
h00kzkam: You can use the Startup Disk Creator in Ubuntu and adjust that way, or that file can be as big as the amount of space you'd like.14:38
zkamescott, not too much.  Probably Chrome, xchat, and some addons14:38
