Syanugood evening. is there a channel for german support too?00:20
Gr33ni installed ubuntu from cd and in seemed to install fine set 35GB to it and the rest to xp00:20
Gr33nbut now its just booting to XP00:20
Gr33ni cant get in to ubuntu00:21

yutaniGRUB didn't install?00:21
KE1HAGr33n: well that's the good news then, all ya need to do is go in and rebuilt Grub2, are you using 11.04?00:21
CrysLet's try again ... I need some advice to get jack sensing working on my HTPC. It's an Ubuntu 11.04 AMD64 box and has an Intel HD Audio (Azalia) with Realtek ALC892 codec. The front panel supports HD audio and jack sensing is working on my secondary Windows 7 installation, too. The front panel works on Linux but plugging in head phones doesn't mute the speakers.00:21
JimmyNeutronGr33n, boot into Linux single user mode, and issue dd if=/dev/<linux root> of=bootsec.lnx count=1 bs=51200:22

Gr33nsorry i got DC'ed00:23
Gr33nyeah windows XP was installed first00:23
Gr33nI don't think Grub installed because its just booting straight to XP i tried to install unbuntu twice00:23
Gr33nboth times it installed without an error00:24
KE1HAOk, well there's seems to be a diff on how to do this, I use Grub to boot my Win-XP / UB box, and it works well. If it's not installed you cna do that post Ubuntu installation.00:24
CrysGr33n: do you have two hard disks? maybe you have installed it in the wrong MBR.00:24
Gr33nno just one its a netbook with an external CD drive00:24
gmachine_24Hi - I am running a Compaq Presario F500 with Ubuntu 10.04.03 LTS. Can someone please give me the CLI commands to release and then renew/reset the wireless network device? Thanks.00:25
Crysgmachine_24: are you using the network manager?00:25
adamkexdoes ATI on linux do 1080p?00:25
gmachine_24Crys, no.00:25
adamkexsmooth video playback00:25
Crysgmachine_24: then it's probably ifdown wlan000:25
gmachine_24Crys, could it be eth1?00:27
Crysgmachine_24: "ip list" displays a list of devices and links00:27
KE1HAHmm looks like Gr33n DC'd again00:27
Gr33nsorry got disconnected again hopefully the last time00:27
Gr33nyeah my install was on just that HD00:27
Crysgmachine_24: it depends on the hardware. try iwconfig or ip link00:27
KE1HAGr33n: Try this, should doo what your needed: http://karuppuswamy.com/wordpress/2010/06/02/how-to-chroot-to-ubuntu-using-live-cd-to-fix-grub-rescue-prompt/00:28
gmachine_24Crys, the problem is when I go to Starbucks the computer recognizes the attwifi network but my computer will not connect to it. If I reboot into Windows 7 it connects fine.00:28
Gr33nthank you KE1HA!00:28
Gr33nill give that a go00:28
KE1HAAll that is doing is, using the LiveCD to mount a linux system, then chrooting in then re-sinstalling Grub200:29
gmachine_24Crys, yeah........ no matter which query I use it comes back that eth0 is the hardwire and eth1 is the wireless00:29
Crysgmachine_24: wireless is a tricky beast. You may need to fiddle with wpa_supplicant and lots settings.00:29
lapagaGr33n: Gr33n just to try something easy - from term type sudo update-grub and see if that does anything00:29
KE1HAlapaga: he can't get into Ubuntu00:29
Crysgmachine_24: Fore desktop users I recommend 11.04 and network manager. It makes life much easier.00:29
gmachine_24Crys, ok. thanks. I've been doing this for almost 10 years and this is the first time I've ever had trouble connecting at Sbux.00:29
Crysgmachine_24: ah, you are a pro, sorry :)00:30
lapagawell that would make it harder to type that then:)00:30
gmachine_24Crys, which network manager. I tried gnome and then WICD and although they both work fine on my home network neither connects at Sbux. No I am not a pro.00:30
Gr33nlol @ lapaga ;)00:31
gmachine_24Crys, I'm just sort of out of options at the moment.00:31
Crysgmachine_24: there is only one network manager. The gnome tool is just a GUI app to control the network manager daemon.00:31
Gr33nwaiting for it to boot in to live mode00:31
KE1HAlapaga: Yeah, he jsut needs to re0nstall grub2 and update, but make sure he's chroot'ed in properly.00:31
gmachine_24Crys, ok. So......... wicd and gnome-network run the same network manager daemon?00:31
gmachine_24ok, not run, but you know00:32
CrysI don't know anything about wicd, sorry.00:32
gmachine_24Crys, I'm pretty sure it's just a diff GUI.00:32
KadirBhello00:32
gmachine_24Crys, but it has worked at times when I could not connect otherwise00:33
CrysIn the past I've configured wpa_supplicant and my networks manually. Nowadays I stick to nm on desktops because it's easier to use and stores the password in the wallet.00:33
gmachine_24OK - perhaps I am confusing old DOS commands with Linux commands It happens sometimes........00:34
gmachine_24Crys, thanks for your help.00:34
Crysyou are welcome00:35

gmachine_24Crys, ha. Yeah. Plus I have a bunch of multimedia installs configured on this computer which are not always so easy for me to do.00:37
CrysI've moved from fvwm2 to kde about ten years ago or so.00:37
gmachine_24sudokill, hi. Maybe I will give the live boot version another go. I just hate reinstalling a bunch of software which has in the past given me a headache.00:38
induzis there any program that can search a doc file[resume] in my computer that was modified some 2 months back??00:38
gmachine_24I did an upgrade once - after my first install - and swore I would never do another.00:38
KadirBhello00:38
Crysgmachine_24: you have to in 2013 eventually.00:39
CrysIIRC LTS has desktop support for three years.00:39
gmachine_24Crys, but if my math is correct, that's two years from now00:39
gmachine_24:)00:39
Crysalmost ;)00:39

treyhnessonic: can you ping "myhost"00:56
rypervenchenessonic: the man page will tell you how to do it.00:56
nutcase_does transcoding dvd take as long on ubuntu as its does on wins i never tried before00:56
Crysnessonic: you need to provide a full path after the colon00:57

dr_willisnessonic,  you do have the case of 'Users' correct? linux is case senesetive.01:08
wasanzythank you both, am actually not looking for the command to use, but some thing like project plan, which they call backup and recovery plan or some thing01:08
KE1HAnessonic: no, when you opent he terminal, you need to cd to where the file is, or specify the full path like: ~/uploads/some-file-name.doc  and the destination path must also exist lile /home/some-username/upolads01:08
treyhnessonic: try this: scp macaddress toby@nessmain:macaddress01:08
nessonicdr_willis: yes01:08
wildbat_semi_afkinduz: are you sure it is not in external drive etc? have you email it ,if so check your SENT box? unless you wanna let ppl ssh in you PC and help the search  (risking stealing your info , install virus maybe ;p j/k ) , that all i can help.01:09
edbianwasanzy: My point is that backup does not need to be a complicated thing.  Just make a copy of everything and put it on some other hdd.01:09
dr_willisnessonic,  oddly named directory.. I alwaya have to double check scp syntax -    scp myfile.txt user@myserver.com:/tmp/mydir01:09
nessonicthe directory is on my mac, where mac has every directory capitalized01:10
edbianinduz: wildbat_semi_afk what file are we searching for?01:10
farty_pantsHI01:10
dr_willisnessonic,  you could ssh into the remote box. cd to that dir.. then scp from the   other box..01:10
KE1HAexactly, cus if you dont, you can overwrite a dir with a dile or file with a dir.01:10
farty_pantsWHats the best software that will convert avi to dvd AND burn as well?01:10
treyhnessonic: also never hurts to use "tab" locally when you type the command to put the format in cirrectly01:10
edbianfarty_pants: devede01:10
dr_willisnessonic,  ahh.. a mac.. If i 'rember' right.. the mac does some  magic - where the case of files the GUI shows does not match the case in all cases. (: P)   that the underlaying OS/shell/  shows...01:10
edbianfarty_pants: my opinion of course01:10
farty_pantsit will also convert?01:10
nessonicI've been trying tab, but it never completes for my mac, only the remote linuxbox's01:10
treyhnessonic: i know the fix, quit using mac01:11
treyhlol01:11
KE1HAlol01:11
nessonicit's my only laptop, and I've tried the linux partition01:11
wildbat_semi_afkedbian: he have a latest resume.doc need to dig up ~ he said it is 'resume.doc' and edited last month but find / -iname 'resume.doc' -mtime -60  2> /dev/null shows nothing. :>01:11
dr_willisnessonic,  im not sure tab completion can work for a remote box like that.. that WOULD be a neat trick for tab completion to do...01:11
farty_pantsedbian: will it also convert?01:11
KE1HAI've got a MacPro, and I know the pain he's feeling, some things are great, other, man what a nightmare !01:11
edbianwildbat_semi_afk: Then that isn't the name :P01:12
dr_willisnessonic,  ssh to the mac and double check the  path is about all i can suggest. or send the file to  some tmp dir on the mac first. the move it.01:12
edbianwildbat_semi_afk: induz Where would you save it besides somewhere in your home folder?01:12
induzedbian, my resume as a .doc file buried somewhere in my system01:12
treyhnessonic: does sftp user@remoteip work?01:12

induzi made numerous folders in my home Folder01:13
edbianinduz: ahhh :)01:13
induzedbian, it was .odf but I saved as .doc caz most of headhunters work on MS Office01:14

noneabove1182does anyone have any ideaas as to why my ubuntu 11.04 SOMETIMES boots but most of the time goes to a flashing cursor and then just a black screen ?01:21
nessonicI ssh'd into the directory with the file, went into sftp, checked if the files there, typed get macaddy, then 0% exited, and still nothing (though it's still in the remote directory)01:21
th0rJoeR1: that description of the problem isn't going to get you very far01:21
KE1HAJoeR1: what did you do or were you doing when xface stopped workign correctly?01:21
noneabove1182hey again edbian :P01:21
JoeR1Monotoko, yes I have and he seems stumped01:22
edbiannoneabove1182: hello friend!01:22
noneabove1182edbian how goes??01:22

farty_pantsI have a question.. not to be biased to linux but why does it look like my linux OS has better graphics than my xp?01:23
KE1HAJoeR1: did you install anything, change anything modify anything, or it just stopped dowing what it was suppsoed to do.01:23
JoeR1I am currently logged in as root because the root account still works for whatever reason, and don't bother telling me how thats a bad idea01:23
farty_pantsits on the same pc01:23
noneabove1182edbian good and bad, and yes :P01:23
MonotokoJoeR1, that isn't very nice now is it?01:23
JoeR1KE1HA, it just stopped, no recent changes01:23
edbiannoneabove1182: :(  What's the issue?01:23
KE1HAJoeR1: Intersting .. haev you tried a quick reinstall of xfce401:23
spankbotfarty_pants what vs of LNX are you running?01:24
JoeR1Monotoko, what do you mean?01:24
noneabove1182edbian so the liveCD did in fact work haha, but now ive got a slight problem with the booting XD once in awhile it boots normally, like it did just now, but most of the time i get a flashing curser then a blank screen that leads to nothing :(01:24
MonotokoJoeR1, sorry, wrong room! Got about 50 IRC windows open >.>01:24
JoeR1KE1HA, no, I am trying to resolve this issue without any re-installs01:24
treyhfarty_pants: what version of windows and linux you running01:24
Monotokoover various networks01:24
th0rJoeR1: what do you mean01:24
edbiannoneabove1182: turn on nomodeset   do you know how to do that?  (strange btw that it happens sometimes)01:24
th0rJoeR1: just stopped....ran out of gas? brakes locked up?01:25
KE1HAJoeR1: well ok, could be workign on that for a while then.01:25
ubuntunoohey guys guess what01:25
noneabove1182edbian yes i do, and ive done that, it does start, but the resolution is very wrong and its not in unity01:25
abc_dallasHi everybody. I'm trying learn Ubuntu & figure out how to use AppArmor; do I have to learn Unix commands first?01:25
edbiannoneabove1182: What graphics card do you have?01:25
ubuntunooi finally got my ipod to mount01:25
JoeR1th0r - indeed, I logged in and thing that once worked had stopped functioning01:25
farty_pantswhat do you mean vs?01:25
edbiannoneabove1182: This system is fully updated too right??01:25
farty_pantsspankbot:01:25
Monotokoabc_dallas, bash commands would be a good start :P01:25
[THC]AcidRain11.04 is leet01:25
KE1HAJoeR1: but it's rather odd that, with no changes, no updates, no apparent config changes, that somehtign static would sudden'y break,01:25
spankbotfarty_pants if you are comparing a recent distro of LNX against XP.. which was released almost 10 years ago, that's why.  So in theory you are comparing a car built in 2011 against a car build in 2001.01:26

farty_pantssame video card01:26
JoeR1KE1HA, I know this will take a long time, Linux ALWAYS takes a long time o do what I want01:26
farty_pantsIm using mint01:26
noneabove1182edbian i have two actually, an intel one and a radeon one, most likely radeon is cause the problems >< and yea its updated, except the graphics driver cause that causes other problems, though if updating fixes the black screen and we can fix the problems it causes then i guess we could go that route XD01:26
farty_pantsthe graphics look much crisp01:26
abc_dallasMonotoko, is that Unix...i'm looking it up in the forums now...thank you01:26
spankbotfarty_pants and?  your OS is not, just like I said, one is 10yrs older.01:26
treyhfarty_pants: what version of windows01:26
AaronMTcan someone ping me01:26
nessonic@farty_pants he means xp is designed from years ago, not for nowadays' much bigger lcd monitors, etc.01:26
farty_pantstreyh: xp01:27
edbiannoneabove1182: I have no idea if updating will fix the black screen problem.  Do you have radeon blacklisted on this install?01:27
treyhfarty_pants: xp is from 2003, mint is from 201101:27
noneabove1182edbian no i dont, i did that a few boots ago but it didnt seem to fix the black screen01:27
treyhfarty_pants: xp was not designed to be "crisp" in the same way mint is01:27
spankbotfarty_pants and?  compair your LNX distro against Win7, 7 is much better.  But I'm really digging Gnome3 though.01:27
noneabove1182edbian unless the permanent one would fix it01:28
JoeR1th0r - the contextual desktop menu is gone, windows do not appear on the panel, windows no longer have the min/max/exit controls, some windows are immobile, some windows cannot be interacted with after opening01:28
treyhfarty_pants: 7 and mint are similiar but different on my hardware01:28
ubuntunooby the way, if anyone is having problems mounting your ipod touch or your iphone, add this to your cydia sources and install usb drive: http://apt.dmytro.me01:28
propmantreyh:  mint?   thought i was in the wrong channel there for a sec  lol01:28
edbiannoneabove1182: make sure it's not blacklisted.  what does lsmod | grep radeon    say ?01:28
ubuntunooi couldnt mount mine at all until i installed it01:28

farty_pantsmy other question is.. what would be the most compatible video card with linux01:29
ubuntunooonce i installed it it mounted like magic01:29
farty_pantsnvidia or ati?01:29
noneabove1182edbian oh okay, im pretty sure its not but ill check just incase, and give me a sec01:29
treyhfarty_pants: the most compatible video card with linux? VGA01:29

abc_dallasnoneabove, I had ssame problem w/ Unity on my 32 bit computer. I bought a new computer01:44
jrib!iptables | dkog01:44
ubottudkog: Ubuntu, like any other Linux distribution, has firewall capabilities built-in. The firewall is managed using the 'ufw' command - see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UFW | An alternative to ufw is the 'iptables' command - See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/IptablesHowTo | GUI frontends such as Gufw (GNOME) and Guarddog (KDE Lucid and Maverick) also exist.01:44
stealzZungo, the search funtion on that wiki isnt working properly for me if you refer to ubuntuwiki01:44
treyhlnxn3rd: you have to make the .run executable and then do ./name-of-file.run01:44
spankbottreyh I'm very interested if you have any knowledge in SQL Server performance gains between ESX or H-V, it seems like the whole SAN/NAS datastore drive and ESX host has become the norm for DB server builds, but they run like shit over time in ESX.. or corrupt the DB.  IMO.. only been running ESX + SQL for 3yrs and that's what I've seen.01:44

[THC]AcidRainlol01:44

dkogjrib:  rackspace cloud server01:46
[THC]AcidRainJoeR1, i agree with everything you say. new ubuntu interface sucks. switch to classic and find a way to remove all traces of new ubuntu01:46
[THC]AcidRaini think my cores are overheating01:46
dkogjrib: is there a file in the system that contains the actual version number?  eg in redhat, it's /etc/redhat-release (or something like that)01:46
abc_dallasObrienDave, I did install it but it said my hardware wasn't capable of running UNity01:46
abc_dallasi got caught using craked win 7 ultimate01:46

dkogjrib: the portal I created the server in says 11.0401:46
treyhdkog: cat /etc/apt/sources.list01:47

treyhnoneabove1182: you can look to see if there are cutting edge drivers for your card that might help01:49
dkogKE1HA: are there docs on how/when iptables is started?  i don't see it in the init files i'm looking at, but i'm probably looking in the wrong place.01:49

KE1HAOverall I'd still prefer Ubuntu, rolled to suit my needs over DSL02:16
KE1HADigDug: Yes, DSL very polished.02:16
coz_DigDug,  the big difference is  not only are the files downloaded and installed,, you will get a list of availabe things to install,,  I generally only choose Ubuntu-desktop,, however,,   the arrows  scroll the list and t he "Space"  bar ticks the box not Enter :)02:16
DigDugI'd ideally like to have the polish that comes with Ubuntu, so I think I am going to try the mini installer.02:16

diamondsI mean, why would you update something to make it work less?03:06

treyhi'm sure that was their goal03:06

JakeWhartonhi all, i'm installing ubuntu on a fresh bare metal machine and am facing issues with a crap SATA controller allowing booting from a mirror or even single drive. I was hoping to use GRUB on a USB flash drive (since that boots fine) and boot a mdam mirror. It all seems straightforward on https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/SoftwareRAID but i'm curious when I install GRUB how do I point it to the mirror so it'll boot even if03:29
JakeWhartona drive is failed?03:29
tswiftbut in redhat it works without doing shift+ctrl+c03:29
tswiftjust copies automatically03:29
tswiftor maybe its the vnc client that does it03:30

tensorpuddingnumberstation: just replace, and search for a space, and replace with \n04:25
mattgyvernumberstation, if it does, you could just make it all one command by doing; sed -i 's/ /\n/g' <path> | uniq -u <path>04:25

mattgyverprobably xenserver, though I might go gangsta and just run ubuntu server and virtualbox and so alot of things headless04:50
noneabove1182any way to make my ubuntu always load up into failsafe graphic mode?04:51
bullgard4_[Lucid] I have got a dead symlink /etc/motd. It points to /var/run/motd. Do I have to care, or can I simply delete it?04:51
cyphawhy would you need virtualbox?04:51
mattgyverthats if i dont go with xen server, if i do then i wont need virtualbox04:51
theadminbullgard4_: Odd, that file is normally a text file containing your motd04:51
theadminbullgard4_: Not a symlink04:52
mattgyvercypha, the issue is i might not have the time to invest in xen and virtualbox could likely suit my needs04:52
bullgard4_theadmin: That's what I have read in Wikipedia too.04:52
cyphamattgyver: if you didn't go with xen, why would you need virtualbox?04:53
bullgard4_theadmin: man motd: "On Debian GNU/Linux this file is a symbolic link pointing to /var/run. "04:53
mattgyvercypha, I would probably just make a few VMs on my home server instead and just connect to them remotely04:54
cyphai still don't understand what the vm's are for?04:54
therugiman, i suck at openboxing :(04:55

mattgyvercypha, because it will be a completely virtualized network.  So instead of having like an office PC and personal PC, it will just be two vms but I can connect anywhere04:56

jenhow do I make lid adjustments04:58
jenfor when I want to make my computor shut off when I close the lid?04:58
jenlaptop I should say04:58
mattgyverTrue, but I want it all to be on completely "separated" instances because each actually have different use cases04:58

jenwhat does hibernate do?05:00
mattgyverjen, hibernate basically does a shutdown but remembers the systems state.05:00

mattgyverjen, np05:01
airtonixjen: hibernate writes the contents of ram to the swap parition before power off completely05:01

jenheheh I got it ^^05:01
urlin2ujen, good deal. ;)05:02
jenwhat does spin down hard disks do?05:02
mattgyverjen, basically stops the hard disks to conserve power.05:02
jenI just dont like my computor getting hot05:03
jenit has shut down a couple times05:03
jenbecause of that05:03
csdserverwhich part is getting hot?  cpu probably?05:03
jenwhat?05:03
jenwell wait...thats not why I came in here05:04
jeneverytime I shut the lid05:04
mattgyverjen, honestly its a machine that you have to run a lot (like my laptop I use almost 8 hours a day for work) just get a cooling station.  Otherwise just set your timeout options for like every 15 or 30 min of idle time05:04
jenit doesnt suspend05:04

bullgard4_theadmin: Do you use Lucid?05:04
theadminbullgard4_: Sorry?05:04
jenyeah it was already like that05:05
jenlet me try it once more05:05
jenI do it slowly...maybe thats why05:05
bullgard4_theadmin: Where does /etc/mod point to on your Lucid?05:05
theadminbullgard4_: I'm not on Lucid o_o05:05
jenwould that be the problem?05:05
csdserverit should trigger no matter how fast or slow, unless the leads are broken at the connection points05:05
bullgard4_theadmin: Thank you.05:06
theadminbullgard4_: For what?05:06
jenok well Im gonna do it quickly and if I fix it05:06
jenI wont come back here05:06
mattgyverjen, its possible too that the hardware also isnt properly supported and if thats the case, its hell to work out.05:06
bullgard4_theadmin: Thank you for your information and the time you have spent to as an attention to my question.05:06
mattgyverbullgard4, if i recall /etc/motd is the what is displayed to telnet session users05:07
mattgyverbullgard4, maybe also ftp, i cant recall but its something like that.  thats probably why its even alerting you.05:07
bullgard4_mattgyver: Yes. But in Ubuntu normally this is the text that you will see after logging in on a virtual console.05:08
mattgyverbullgard4, you could probably just create the file to fix the symlink i would imagine, im pretty sure its nothing more than just text05:10
theadminbullgard4_: Well, on my system /etc/motd is an empty text file.05:10
bullgard4_theadmin: What distribution version are you using?05:11
theadminbullgard4_: Well, that's unrelated because I use Arch :D05:11
monaDeveloperHi05:11
monaDeveloperI just moved an executable file to ntfs part05:11
mattgyverbullgard4, im on lucid and its blank on mine05:11

theadminbullgard4_: Yeah, /var/run/motd doesn't exist for me05:12
mattgyverbullgard4, yeah it doesnt exist for me either actually.  I have /etc/motd that is a symlink to /var/run/motd but /var/run/motd doesnt exist.05:14
bullgard4_mattgyver: So /etc/motd  is a dead symlink in your computer too?05:15
mattgyverbullgard4, yea05:15

a111Nah, i installed it from disk urlin2u05:27
a111not from within iwndows05:27

urlin2ua111, easy fix if you have the mentioned discs.05:27

Pat201can someone give me a basic idea of what a shell script is?05:32
mattgyverlauratika, shot in the dark, but you could likely plug it and mount it manually, mount -t hfs /dev/<location>05:32
lauratikatheadmin: thanx...does this works even if is dead...on mac wont be recognized?05:33
mattgyverPat201, a shell script is a series of commands that perform a specific action (or many).05:33
theadminlauratika: I don't think it'd work05:33
lauratikamattgyver: by location you mean?05:33
mattgyverlauratika, an easy test might be just plug it in, and do a sudo fdisk -l05:34
mattgyverif you see a new device in the list, then its not a power fault.  If you dont, it could be.  If you do see it, try to mount it.05:34
mattgyverlauratika, so i guess i should say, do;sudo fdisk -l  - then plug it in - and run the command again.05:35

fructoseAnyone know how Ubuntu does file transfers? In 11.04 I guess samba isn't installed by default, it seems06:12
ru6yxxI have a triple boot system but I can't get startup manager to start up the other OS's automatically, so I have to do it manually every time from  the GRUB boot screen06:13
mattgyverru6yxx, thats kinda how it works, you pick one as your default (automatic) or select another manually06:13
mattgyverfructose, I am not sure the transfer is related to samba as ive never run into any issues myself.  Is it possible the network has a high load on it right now or an old or bad card?06:14
WRAzbleh so my compizconfig just blew away my entire UI... is there a hotkey or anything to log off with?06:14

edrisadakah orang indonesia di sini06:15
WRAzrestart it is >.>06:15
fructosemattgyver: Both can download at full speed externally, which is 7mbps06:15
ru6yxxmattgyver: what I mean is that if I point at Windows to start automatically, using startup manager, the Grub boot ignores me and continues starting up Ubuntu06:15
glebihanru6yxx, if I understand, you would like grub to remember your last choice ?06:16
mattgyverfructose, yeah that is kinda strange.  Though, even if samba could throttle it would likely be something not configured out of the box.06:17
glebihanru6yxx, or do you only want to change the default boot system ?06:17
ru6yxxglebihan: Yes and startup manager doesn't seem to save my settings.06:17
fructosemattgyver: Well, I just installed the 'samba' package, so I'm not even sure how things were being sent before06:17
glebihanru6yxx, startupmanager doesn't work with grub206:18
ru6yxxoh! but it used to on 10.1006:18
mattgyverfructose, ubuntu has ntfs support installed with ntfsprogs so i imagine thats how06:18
glebihanru6yxx, edit /etc/default/grub, add the lines "GRUB_DEFAULT=saved" and "GRUB_SAVEDEFAULT=true" then run "sudo update-grub"06:18

=== babilen is now known as Guest42086
mattgyverfructose, actually theres also a package related with nautilus, i cant remember what its called though for sharing that it uses06:19
fructosemattgyver: I'm not sure what you mean. NTFS is a filesystem06:20
SHVELOru6yxx: use super boot manager06:20
glebihanfructose, the "samba" package is used to run a samba server, not to access a windows network06:20
fructoseglebihan: Ah, right. Do you know what service would be used to access the windows network? I'd like to restart it06:21
ru6yxxSHVELO: Thanks, I'll read up on it06:21
glebihanfructose, I think it's "smbd", but I'm not sure, haven't used samba for some time now06:22
fructoseglebihan: I was under the impression smbd was samba06:22
fructoseglebihan: And part of the samba package06:22
KM0201yes, it's smbd06:23
KM0201sudo service smbd stop/start06:23
mattgyverfructose, actually theres also a package related with nautilus, i cant remember what its called though for sharing that it uses06:23
mattgyverbah, sorry06:23
glebihanfructose, you're right, smbd is part of the samba package and is only used by the server06:24
mattgyverfructose, what i meant to say: smbd is samba server, and part of samba.  I think linux natively sees NTFS filesystems but just cant read/write to them and sees them as unknown types, ntfsprogs allows read/write06:25
mattgyverfructose, so the only "network" service would probably be network manager in this case, /etc/init.d/network-manager06:25
fructoseUgg. I don't want to restart that06:26
mattgyverbut, it could also be a problem on the other end too with the win7 box, hard to say so you might need to restart the tcp/ip stack on that06:26
fructoseKinda doubt it. In my experience it's always been the Linux end of things screwing up :-)06:26
mattgyverfructose, might sound dumb but how are you copying the file, (ie: nautilus, cp?)06:27

ArtVanda1aeHi all. Everyone once in a while sound stops working for me. I restart the computer and it starts working. So I've concluded that it's a software issue. I want to find out how I can get sound back without restarting my computer. I have restarted pulseaudio (pulseaudio -k) and the process is respawned, but still no sound. I try to redirect or pipe to both /dev/dsp and pacat and I get no static. What can I try next?06:59

sudokillUncleLaz- ? whats the relevance there11:27
sudokilllol11:27
theadminAnd let's not start arguing about sexual orientation, now.11:27
Benkinoobygry, cli ones are hardly usable... even the site structure is messed up11:27
AcidpunkAt least it's not a distro war11:27
systemclienttheadmin: Opera is like KDE in this matter11:27

gryBenkinooby: ^11:27
theadminsystemclient: Well, it starts up and works faster than FF though11:27

systemclientchromium is the killer, but I fear the killer in non-privacy also :-/11:28
AcidpunkChromium is good and bad, I use it and I can tell you it's not perfect either11:28
AcidpunkSome things in firefox are better and vice versa same applies to Ie9 and opera11:28
sudokillAcidpunk- whats bad?11:28
gryLasrod: did it work?11:28

AcidpunkThat was the point sudokill11:30
obyrithwhen i start up my computer i have no issues with my usb keyboard, neither do i in windows. However, when I switch to linux, sometimes it doesn't seem like it works at all, i can't type in my password or even change my capslock light. Every time I can fix this by changing the USB port of the keyboard, it doesn't seem to matter which one, as long as it isn't the one it started in. What could possibly be causing this?11:30
theadminsudokill: So not almost every.11:30
AcidpunkYou said there aren't bugs in chromium sudokill11:30
sudokillAcidpunk- so... how can you say chromium having bugs as a minus point?11:30
gryGuest43031: can you ask in one line please, and include all details?11:30
sudokillwhen every prog does11:31
Acidpunkbecause the bugs in chromium aren't the same as say bugs in firefox11:31

sudokillRobson- in case someone installs the wrong one11:32

ParkerRMy hardware supports 64 but I stay at 32 because I can just use the PAE kernel to use my 4gb of RAM11:32
jribmiktor: how are you starting X?11:33
miktorWell, actually the problem might lie in that i don't start x but dwm, but dwm doesn't work without x... anyway i made a login profile that looks like... (link in a sec)11:34
jribmiktor: you have to start x at some point11:34
theadminmiktor: Add "exec dwm" to your ~/.xinitrc and just xinit11:34
sudokillstartx you mean?11:34
miktorwell, then dwm doesn't start11:34

javier__hi! I need help. I think a neighbour might be using my wifi connection. I tried to download something from "megaupload" and I got the message that my IP is already downloading and .avi file, and it's the same since a few days (when I want to watch an online video it tells I've already exceed the transfer limitation). While I'm sure noone from my house is downloading a thing. How to detect if someone (or something) is doing so?11:38
grypobara: up to 'on ubuntu 11.04 ...' line,it got through11:38
chalcedonytheadmin, pulseaudio is right but : ~$ pulseaudio --kill && pulseaudio -d11:38
chalcedonypulseaudio: invalid option -- 'd'11:38
chalcedonyE: main.c: Failed to parse command line.11:38

miktorjrib, i actually don't have any ".xsession" i have ".xsession-errors", but it's insignificant, just font errors. or maybe you mean the .Xsession file in /etc/x11/ ?11:42
Ovomaltinewho knows ?11:42
jribmiktor: create a ~/.xsession that you want the "user script" option to run11:43
theadminchalcedony: Okay, it's running so... I dunno. If it still doesn't work, try starting alsamixer and make sure stuff isn't muted11:43

chub_hi I'm a gentoo user, and I need some translation from ubuntu to gentoo : this article explains the fix on ubuntu (http://froebe.net/blog/2010/01/22/suns-virtualbox-3-1-x-getting-vrdp-remote-desktop-to-authenticate-properly-with-linux-pam/) but the problem is, I don't have a shadow group on my gentoo system, so I would like to know what this shadow group is13:03
norbert79Kingsy: Onboard RAIDs aren't real RAIDs...13:03
theadminchub_: Um, this isn't #gentoo you know13:04
Kingsynorbert79: agreed but still there must be a way of setting it up on ubuntu13:04
compdocKingsy, yup. However, you can disable the onboard and just use linux madam to create raid 1 mirrors, or, buy a real raid card13:04
norbert79chub_: The people who can have SUDO rights13:04
coz_chub_,   did you ask in the #gentoo channel ....yes?13:04
Kingsyoh ok, so you use linux to do the RAIDin ?13:04
Picinorbert79: no... Thats the admin group.13:04
theadminnorbert79: No, that's not "shadow". That's "admin", or more commonly "wheel"13:04
norbert79Oh, right13:04
norbert79mixed up them13:04
BlackArchDogchub, sorry they dont get the idea we use more then one distro13:05
chub_norbert79: aah ok.... so what is really happening there is that the user that executes virtualbox is actually doing so as user root?13:05
compdocKingsy, yes. Windows has the same thing13:05
Picichub_: no. norbert79 was incorrect.13:05
sudokillchub_- what are you trying to do?13:06
chub_Pici: ok so what does this group have access to?13:06

Vaati_I am using ubuntu netbook edition, and it doesnt seem to have the "sg" kernel module -- is there any way I can add it?13:07

coz_chub_,  ok understood :)13:07
TheFuzzballI have an Apple Keyboard and pressing Alt+3 doesn't give me the hash character. How do I get the hash character in Ubuntu?13:07
canurabusauronandace: APT didn't crash, db isn't locked.13:07
Halabundwhat CJK fonts do you folks prefer on Ubuntu?  The default (whatever that is) is a bit blurry for my eyes, after getting used to antialiased Vista fonts.  Note that I'm just learning the language, so I'm more sensitive to this than natives who are used to the shapes already13:08
Picichub_: /etc/shadow for one.13:08
urlin2ucanurabus, synaptic will list dependencies.13:08
BlackArchDogcanurabus: learn apt-get its easier13:09
norbert79Halabund: I use the ones normally which I also use in Windows. Ubuntu can handle Truetype fonts too13:09
coz_canurabus,  out of curiosity,, when you open a terminal   sudo apt-get update  && sudo apt-get install -f13:09
compdocTheFuzzball, wouldnt that be shift-3 ?13:09
sudokillHalabund- try using full hinting in the font settngs13:09
sudokillits not as blurry13:09
Halabundnorbert79, you mean you use YaHei / Meiryo on Ubuntu?13:09
marduk666having an issue with mounting a drive that's part of a raid 1 array, mdadm --assemble --scan gives me: mdadm: no devices found for /dev/md013:10

chub_Pici: if you can suggest I look at something else13:10
norbert79Halabund: You can also tune the font rendering too... I am not familiar with none of those fonttypes, but if they are in OTF or TTF format, yes, why not13:10
TheFuzzballcompdoc It's a British keyboard, Shift-3 gives me the pound symbol.13:10
compdocahh13:10
theadmin"pound"? Do you mean the octothorp?13:10
theadminThe #?13:11
Halabundnorbert79, I mean, in my experience, Ubuntu renders fonts differently from Windows, so copying the Windows fonts over might very well give much worse results than using those that come with Ubuntu, and they'll usually look different on Ubuntu13:11
marduk666£ that13:11

coz_canurabus,   ok  try  sudo apt-get dist-upgrade13:12
IdleOneonly took 4 tries.13:12
TheFuzzballtheadmin I understand the confusion, because a lot of people call the hash (she, octothorpe, crunch, etc) pound too.13:12

Tivenim supposed to set it on a port to forward on my machine right? nothing ubuntu side13:15
Tivenhttp would be nice ArtVanda1ae13:15
ArtVanda1aeTiven, correct, nothing Ubuntu side13:15
dr_willisTiven,  it pays spend an hr just reading up on ssh.. it can be a bit picky .  but a port forward is differnt then a tunnel..13:15
rabbi1Friends, I was just searching for a tool which keeps track of my internet usage ..... and alerts once crosses the specified databand.... :) any solution13:15

ubottuHedgehog456: Gnome 3 is not currently supported on Ubuntu. A PPA for natty is available at https://launchpad.net/~gnome3-team/+archive/gnome3 but these packages are EXPERIMENTAL and UNSTABLE, will break Unity and possibly other parts of your system, and cannot be downgraded safely.13:43

rabbi1BlackArchDog: you there? wonder how to start conky ....13:47
HalabundActionParsnip, alright, that is pretty clear there: "For users unaware, the default Ubuntu desktop in Ubuntu 11.04 does not allow for the addition of traditional GNOME applets on the panel. Most of the features provided by these applets are now catered for elsewhere in Unity or can be acquired by installing extra indicator applets."  I did not know this.13:47
EgyParadoxsulav: what default password?13:47
brettonI gotta display problem. When I put a software fullscreen, it becomes all white. For example vlc when I read a video.13:48

sulavEgyParadox,  pswd for openssl13:48
brettonActionParsnip: compiz fusion I think13:49
brettonso yes13:49
ActionParsnipbretton: same thing, if you use natty, log of and log in to the 'Ubuntu Classic' session. If you use Lucid or Maverick press ALT+F2 and run:  metacity --replace13:49
ActionParsnipbretton: this will take compiz out of the equation, is it still the same?13:50

compdocip13:58
Majestikjavier__, that is likely to be controlled by your router, you could reboot it and see if it gets a new IP but its probably leased to the MAC address of your router anyway so you'll get the same one from the BRAS of your ISP13:58

archmanis there a way to disable joins/parts/quits messages in empathy?14:00
javier__Majestik, escott: I guess that's it. I rebooted, but get the same ip all the time. The problem is that it looks like I share that ip with other people, and some internet services detect us as the same person, and I cannot use those services (like megaupload, web storage of files)14:00
theadminarchman: I dunno about empathy, but on irssi I'd do: /ignore * JOIN PART QUIT14:00
ActionParsnipbretton: so you can direct 100% of your effort finding out what the deal is with compiz as you KNOW that is the thing causing the issue14:00

ArtVanda1aediamonds, /tmp :)14:18
dr_willistheres rarey a need to go to where a program is installed to. :)14:18
ArtVanda1aediamonds, note: you'll lose everything in /tmp when you restart the machine14:18
minimecklingelbart: base files and libs are stored in /usr/lib/yoursoftware. Shared stuff would be in /usr/share/yoursoftware; docs in /usr/share/doc/yoursoftware; systemwide configuration in /etc/yoursoftware; binary (launcher) in /usr/bin/14:18
thunsuckerdiamonds: you could also create a generic "share" user and store it in their home directory in a folder, then give permissions to that folder to the other users14:18
diamondsArtVanda1ae: yeah that doesn't seem like the best place...14:19
diamondsI'm trying /home/me/public14:19
diamondss/public/Public/14:19
escottdiamonds, generally you put the users into the same group and then chgrp the file to that group. most $HOME is at least readable to others so I can create a file in my $HOME and share it to others by chgrp to their group14:19
thunsuckerdiamonds: that would work just gotta make sure you set the permissions correctly14:19
Gentoo64diamonds- or use a different drive / partition?14:20
thunsuckerdiamonds: dropbox is perfect for that14:20
diamondsheh...14:21

diamonds"/home/shared" or something14:21
yoshi_Any 1 know why i can't turn on advenced vizualation desktop?14:22
Gentoo64JakeR003- i think hold shift14:22
escottdiamonds, /home/shared presumes that there is only one group of users who need to share things14:22
thunsuckerdiamonds: i think that is what the user's Public Folder is for14:22
mattgyverJakeR003, hold down the shift key while rebooting I believe14:22
diamondsthunsucker: yeah but other users can't list it14:22
diamondsI'm checking the permissions now...14:22
escottthunsucker, diamonds public folder is for network sharing14:22
mattgyverJakeR003, sorry didnt see Gentoo64's response14:22
diamondsescott: ahhh...14:23
yoshi_any 1 know?14:23
diamondsescott: 755 Public/14:23
compdocyoshi_, what is that?14:23
diamondswhy can't I get a listing from another user?14:23
escottdiamonds, thats the same set of permissions for every other folder in $HOME. there is some special logic to enable samba sharing of ~/Public14:24
escottdiamonds, ls /home/joe14:24
diamondswhy is permission for ls denied if I have x privs on the directory?14:24
diamondsis the whole home directory just "special" protected?14:25
jribdiamonds: because you need to be able to read14:25
diamondsjrib: I have that as well14:25
diamonds75514:25
escottdiamonds, by default you have the ability to browse joe's folder and see his filenames. you can even read his files, but you can't modify them or add files to his folder14:25
diamondsescott: not here...14:25
jribdiamonds: pastebin your terminal session and « ls -ld /path/to/directory/in/question »14:25

thunsuckerdiamonds: here is a simple solution. create a group called 'family', add your users to that group, make a directory /home/family, change owner of that directory to family:root, add a shortcut to each user's desktop with the path14:28
ActionParsnipLacabra: again, what is the video chip?14:28

Mediiithanks usr13 ActionParsnip14:29

ActionParsnipLacabra: either OS will tell you the chip14:30
escottdiamonds you could use that to "hide" a folder inside another folder. revoke read on the directory, and only those who know the other folder inside it exists will be able to cd into the inner folder14:30

minimecLacabra: the GMA950 is supported for a long time, even though there have been regressions due to changes in the xserver architecture. What exactly do you want to do? A dual screen setup? In that case, it could be, that your settings do reach the maximal resolution capacity of the card. Maybe take a lower resolution on the laptop and try to activate the external screen.14:39

canurabushi I was told to run sudo apt-get dist-upgrade to fix broken packages on my system. One of the packages it tried to isntall (some perl lib) went into an infinite loop and I had to kill the process. Now if I try to run apt or synaptic, it tells me to run dpkg --configure -a first. I do that... and it tries to install the stupid package that caused the infinite loop in the first place putting me back to square one. Can someone help?14:41
jribcanurabus: pastebin what happens exactly with this infinite loop14:42
usr13canurabus: sudo apt-get dist-upgrade is not for fixing broken packages.   sudo apt-get -f install  may be what you are looking for.14:42

usr13Once you get a system upgraded to 10.04, and you want it to stick with LTS,  How is that done?    In other words, if you have an 8.04 system that has the Update Manager set to LTS and you do sudo do-release-upgrade  Will it do a distribution upgrade to 8.10 or 10.04?15:15

thunsuckercanurabus: did the problem occur during an upgrade from 10.04 to 10.10?16:28
fosterdvNixNinja have you attempted to tail your error logs?16:28
NixNinjanot yet but I will16:28
shinsukeglebihan, thanks again. linux will rule the world16:29
w30dataworm, I put ubuntu on a netbook with flash drive because of no cd drive; I would think it would work on a Mac also if you get the mac-ubuntu iso16:29
glebihanshinsuke, you're welcome :)16:29
canurabusthunsucker: no, the distribution wasn't being upgraded just updates16:29
auronandacemokti: thinkpads are great but i've heard reports that nvidia optimus graphics are difficult to get working under linux16:29
thunsuckercanurabus: did you try just: sudo apt-get install -f16:30
moktiI actually found a thread that solved some issues. I'll have to check a little further to make sure16:30
canurabusthunsucker: many times... get the same error synaptic gives me16:31
thunsuckercanurabus: read the bottom post: http://www.linuxforums.org/forum/debian-linux/59318-package-problem-broken-dependency-more.html16:31

javier__someone knows if I can safely change grub2 to another in ubuntu 11.04? grub2 doesn't work well (can't use my keyboard there)16:31
auronandacemokti: i've heard of bumblebee but it does sound more of a hack than a fix16:32
auronandacemokti: given time though, i'm sure linux will support switchable graphics better in the future16:32
designbybeckHas anyone hooked up a laptop with HDMI to their HDMI TV??16:33

=== desirednick is now known as KittyGirl
designbybeckI tried both Ubuntu and Windows and I have a lag on the TV16:33
theadminjavier__: apt-get install grub-legacy16:34
moktiauronandace: This thread is for a separate graphics card that also uses optimus, do you think this would work:16:34
moktiauronandace: sorry I forgot the link: ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=175782116:35
NekkenHello16:35
fosterdvHello Nekken16:35
faint545designbybeck, how big is your tv16:35
NekkenCan I ask question about Ubuntu technical issue here (sound card issue) ?16:36
javier__theadmin: with that comand, says that "couldn't open the file" and "denied permission"16:36
designbybeck55in tv faint54516:36
faint545designbybeck, if it's really big, then there will be latency.. oh wow. yeah latency is expected of that size haha16:36
fosterdvNekken, I would think so.16:36
moktiauronandace: I mean, I could probably just disable optimus...16:37
NekkenI'm using Natty on Acer TimelineX 3830T16:37
theadminjavier__: Um.16:37
faint545designbybeck, nothing you can do really16:37
designbybeckdoh!! I didn't know that would happen? anyway to fix it?16:37
theadminjavier__: sudo apt-get install grub-legacy16:37
designbybeck:(( :(( :((16:37
thrillERboyHi, How Can I color the prompt of my CLI? ie How to make tboy@ubuntu:~$ look in different color that rest of the output?16:37
NekkenAnd I don't any sound except...... when I plug or unplug the computer to power supply16:37
designbybeckI told my boss we should have gone with a short throw projector!!16:37
javier__theadmin:  sorry, that was obvious. Thanks16:37
designbybeckThanks for the feedback faint545!16:37
moktiauronandace: idk, I'll probably be able to figure it out, thanks16:37
NekkenI mean ... not when it is plugged, or unplugged, but when I'm plugging:unplugging it16:38
Nekken:-(16:38
auronandacemokti: like i said, more of a hack, essentially what that thread recomends is disabling optimus and blacklisting nouveau and framebuffers and using the nvidia card exclusively16:38
perlsyntaxHas anyone use q4wine before?16:38
theadminperlsyntax: I think PlayOnLinux works better.16:38
canurabusthunsucker: because the packages involved are perl and libc, following those instructions, specifically the part where it says 'mark the unmet dependencies in synaptic', basically makes synaptic reinstall my entire system.16:38
theadminjavier__: No problem.16:38
perlsyntaxThe prob is i have a hard time find out how to unmount it.16:38
blinki am trying to install limewire but it doesn't work!16:39

distroiahi everybody. 1920x1080 on 23" monitor, ubuntu 10.10, gnome, default theme. My problem is, it's hard to resize the windows - the area at the window corner where the mouse changes shapes allowing me to resize the window  is too small. anyone had this same issue and solved it?16:39

perlsyntaxwhy you say that for i never use it before.16:39
fosterdvNekken, the sound you have when you plug in and out, is that coming from the system speaker? or your actual speakers?16:39

theadminperlsyntax: Yah16:40
javier__theadmin: but no luck. It says that gurb-legacy is not available, but maybe "grub-ieee1275       grub-coreboot       grub-pc         grub-efi-ia32        grub-efi-amd64"16:40
fosterdvNekken: Have you tried to look up your laptop and find what soundcard or chipset is being used for your sound, and looked up and attempted to verify you have that driver installed?16:40
perlsyntaxtheadmin, it easy to unmount it to?16:40
Nekkenit is a laptop, and the sound is from internal speaker (not the buzzer)16:40
theadminBe back at some point in the future.
