awesomenessbabaei, u r so kind:) let me read it but i believe i don't have any of them (of course it they dont come with this operation system automatically)00:00
delacurlin2u: bascialy, but what I ment is that the root privileges are not "on" on default.00:00
DaemonikGentoo64, Using 2.6.35-30-generic, nvidia-current00:01
urlin2udelac, how long have you been using open source?00:01
delacurlin2u: why is no one else worried about program suddenly starting to ask root password without any apparent reason? :(00:01
=== dimple_ is now known as dimple-natz
delacurlin2u: a while (few years)00:01
Gentoo64delac, what asks for root password?00:01
delacGentoo64: usb-creator00:01
urlin2udelac, you are on another planet is why basically ;-)00:02
Gentoo64because it needs root priveledges?00:02
Gentoo64and it does gksu automatically?00:02
delacGentoo64: it did not on ubuntu 9.10. I just checked00:02
Gentoo64delac, run it from terminal as user00:02
urlin2udelac, you needed sudo in 9.10 just like I do in natty.00:03
delacGentoo64: I did check that no "grace" time was on00:03
Gentoo64delac, does it work, as user from terminal?00:03
Gentoo64delac, you need root priv to format usb etc00:04
delacGentoo64: it doesnt ask any password even from command line00:05
babaeiawesomeness: those two packages I listed should be something you can get from Synaptic00:05
Gentoo64as  anormal user?00:05
Gentoo64delac, well it wont ask for a password from terminal...00:06
delacGentoo64: as normal user (who is sudoer)00:06
Gentoo64delac, whats the actual problem?00:06
=== `mOOse` is now known as m00se
stunkiebye00:06
Gentoo64delac, yea, because running a  program as a user is different from running gksu program00:06
Gentoo64or sudo00:06
CortexI'm having problems with Ubuntu acting slow on my laptop. it worked perfect before00:07
delacGentoo64: i'm just wondering why it (usb-creator) started asking for the password after some update on ubuntu 10.1000:07
Cortexanyone know how I can fix it?00:07
DebiansArmycortex version00:07
Gentoo64delac, when you click on usb creator icon?00:07
CortexDebiansArmy: 11.04, I think. I use the Classic mode00:07
Tim55i have a problem with ubuntu00:07
zeldaHow would I remove Ubuntu and Grub to make the computer default to other OS?00:08
delacGentoo64: no, when I try to either "Erase Disk" or "Make Startup Disk "00:08
Gentoo64delac, thats because it needs root priveledges for that00:09
The_Rufusdoes anyone here have any experience in installing a Highpoint Rocket RAID driver on ubuntu server 11?00:09
CortexEven my internet is acting slow, and it's a pretty fast one00:09
Gentoo64delac, why does it bother you?00:09
delacGentoo64: because the thing started to ask me root privileges suddenly, without any good reason00:09
Gentoo64delac, its nothing to worry about..00:10
delacGentoo64: it just got me worried00:10
zeldaHow would I remove Ubuntu and Grub to make the computer default to other OS?00:10
Gentoo64zelda, what other os?00:10
Gentoo64windows?00:10
delacGentoo64: well, apparently it is something that everyone is suffering from, so it might be legitimate00:10
zeldaYes00:10
Gentoo64delac, asking for root priv to format a usb stick is no security issue00:10
CortexShould I just flatout install Ubuntu again?00:11
Gentoo64zelda, delete the uubntu partition, and reinstall win bootloader00:11
zeldaIm getting rid of Ubuntu cause I cant get my HDMI to work.00:11
zeldaGentoo Thanks00:11
Gentoo64ok00:11
DebiansArmydelac: Wow, lol its a usb stick??00:11
zeldaIs there a date in Oct with 11.10 is coming?00:12
Gentoo6411th?00:12
Gentoo64idk00:12
bazhangzelda, no00:12
bazhangzelda, 11.10 discussion is in #ubuntu+1 by the way00:12
zeldacan someone help fix my HDMI issue? The computer doesnt see it00:12
rwwzelda: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/OneiricReleaseSchedule00:12
Cortexah, anyone know how I can fix Ubuntu from acting slow on my laptop?00:12
Gentoo64Cortex, thats too vague00:13
zeldaRWW sweet! thanks00:13
bazhangCortex, need more details00:13
Gentoo64Cortex, does dmesg say anything00:13
Cortexdmesg? I don't know what that is, sorry00:13
Gentoo64Cortex, run it from a terminal00:13
delacGentoo64: well, I dont really know what it is using the root password for. I mean, Writing the bootable disk doesnt require it. First thing that came to my mind is that it is trying to write to some other disk that does require root privileges. Like /00:13
CortexUbuntu is acting slow with everything. Programs, music, internet, everything is slow. It was p perfect before00:13
Gentoo64before what?00:14
Gentoo64delac, no idea i dont use usb creator :s sorry. surely youd know if it was writing to / or not?00:14
CortexI haven't used the laptop in three months,, so I don't know what's the problem here00:14
delacGentoo64: well, afterwards I would ;)00:14
tripelbWhat is error -71 and how could I find that out for myself: context: new full speed USB device using uhci_hcd and address 58  (newline) [449024.716024] usb 4-2.1: device not accepting address 58, error -71 (newline) [449024.718061] hub 4-2:1.0: unable to enumerate USB device on port 1  AND does enumerate mean mount?00:15
Gentoo64delac, doesnt it tell you in the gui? i doubt itd do anything to root00:15
th0rCortex: do you run a system monitor of some sort...conky, gkrellm?00:15
Cortexth0r: nope00:15
Gentoo64Cortex, run top what does the cpu etc say00:16
th0rcortex: at least, open a terminal, run top, and see if you are loading the cpu or memory00:16
delacGentoo64: well, of course it should not, in any circumstances, but if a bug struck...00:16
Cortexok, let me check00:16
Gentoo64delac, your being over paranoid00:16
ProstheticSthis isnt really an ubuntu specific question, but anyhow , ive lost a partition, what tools are available to do file recovery  (hopefully whole partition recovery, but if not , file will do)00:16
Gentoo64"if a bug struck"... any root running app could have a bug00:16
Cortexran top. what should I be looking at/for in here?00:17
Gentoo64Cortex, cpu use00:17
delacGentoo64: and that is why I was worried. a program that erases a disk starts to ask me root privileges even when it doesnt need it. it is pretty alarming00:17
Jordan_Udelac: I already told you what it requires root permissions for. Writing to the mbr.00:17
th0rckr]]\\00:17
Gentoo64delac, gparted requires root00:18
CortexGentoo64: it says 97.7% us, the rest for sy00:18
DebiansArmydelac: Do you understand linux structure. Would get a kernel error more then likely... If it security issue use firewall, virus scanner00:18
Gentoo64DebiansArmy, virus scanner?00:18
DebiansArmydelac: ssh tunelling00:18
Gentoo64do you understand linux structure?00:18
delacJordan_U: so it didnt write the mbr earlier? and why is the mbr written now?00:18
Gentoo64delac, post a screenshot or something please00:19
DebiansArmyGentoo64: just trying to put person at ease... If there worried00:19
Gasseushow do I get empathy use a socks proxy?00:19
delacGentoo64: of what?00:19
CortexGentoo64: what does that usage of cpu mean? is it normal?00:19
Gentoo6497% is bad, if nothing is running...00:19
Cortexall i'm running is Chrome00:20
Gentoo64Cortex, what program is using that? itl say next to it00:20
DebiansArmyGentoo64: Maybe we can put up a barbwire fence around the terminal...00:20
Jordan_Udelac: The easiest and most reliable way to determine that the correct bits are in the mbr is to write them to the mbr. It could read them from the mbr and not write if nothing needed to be changed, but reading from the mbr *also requires root privileges*.00:20
Gasseusthere's your problem00:20
jack____Is there a way to tell which source apt-get is pulling a package from?00:20
jack____or which source it was installed from?00:20
CortexGentoo64: under command it says "indicator-apple"00:20
zykotick9jack____, "apt-cache policy FOO"00:20
th0rCortex: hit Shift-P, it will sort by processor usage00:20
Gentoo64Cortex, chrome shouldnt use cpu. im on chrome and xchat and cpu is less than 1%00:20

Gentoo64lol00:21
Jordan_Udelac: There is no way around a program like unetbootin requiring root privileges.00:21
Gentoo64ProstheticS, how idd you "lose" it?00:21
K-RichHEY ALL00:21
CortexGentoo64: dodgy?00:21

ProstheticSgentoo it had not long started a 'move ' in gparted when someone knocked the keyboard off the bed and hit the cancel key00:21
Gentoo64Cortex, sudo killall indicator-apple, see if it speeds up00:22
ProstheticSi think that the partition has been relabelled, infacti  can see it has00:22
zykotick9ProstheticS, check out testdisk00:22

Gentoo64lol00:23
Sonnei can't see any sun-java6 packages in the repositories00:23
zykotick9!java | Sonne00:23
ubottuSonne: To install a Java runtime on Ubuntu on 10.04 LTS and newer, see http://goo.gl/zwOip -  For the Sun Java products and browser plugin, search for the sun-java6- packages in the !partner repository on Lucid (which must be enabled), or !multiverse repository on older releases.00:23
Sonneseen that00:23
CortexDebiansArmy: not sure, should i post a pic of what the terminal is showing?00:23
Sonnenothing on partner repository either00:23
qinspo0kz: There is one more (neat one) on source forge, java based, but never tried it.00:23
Gentoo64Cortex, yes00:23
delacJordan_U: that is odd, as on ubuntu 9.10 the usb-creator doesnt seem to require root privileges00:23
CortexGentoo64: doesn't seem to work. "sudo kill-all: command not found" just pops up00:23
Gentoo64Cortex, its killall00:24
Gentoo64one word00:24

The_Rufus?00:24
Jordan_Udelac: Are you sure that wasn't just you misinterpreting not being asked for a password (due to gksudo remembering your authentication) again?00:24
DebiansArmyGentoo64: Lol ;000:24

Gentoo64i thought it was some dodgy apple prog00:26
Cortexwith a t?00:26
Gentoo64either way, shouldnt be using 97% cpu00:26
delacJordan_U: I tried to open synaptic before I opened the usb-creator. The synaptic did ask for password. (I didnt give it).00:26
jack____is there a way to get `aptitude search` or `apt-cache search` to dispaly current versions00:27
Gentoo64jack____, maybe there not in ubuntu repos?00:27
jack____Gentoo64, what?00:27
Picijack____: What do you mean by 'current versions' ?00:27
Gentoo64oh you mean versions of installed apps?00:27
qinjack____: dpkg -L <package>00:27
Cortexok, it worked and is asking me to reload the program/whatever it is. should I?00:27
zykotick9jack____, apt-cache policy FOO00:27

jack____picasso, ++00:28
jack____pici`++00:28
Gentoo64Cortex, when did you last reboot btw?00:28
Jordan_Udelac: Did you actually successfully use usb-creator without entering a password? Do you realize that policykit is separate from gksudo and has more fine grained control over remembering authentication for specific actions?00:28
CortexGentoo64: reboot? as in restart?00:28
Gentoo64yes00:28
intraderAnyone, printing on ubuntu? I used to in 9.04 - once I went to 10.10, I had not printed; I don't know how to set it up00:29

Gentoo64Cortex, when di you last reboot?00:30
Gentoo64"not really" ?00:30
Gentoo64lol00:30
delacJordan_U: I logged in to the desktop (gave password there). Tried the synaptic (it asked for password). Then ran the usb-creator and made the bootable disk. Never giving the password.00:30
zykotick9FerretWithASpork, i never found a way, hopefully you'll have more luck00:30

Chicheguenas a todos00:32
Gentoo64Cortex, no idea why indicator applet is using that cpu. did killing it make it faster?00:32
Jordan_Udelac: It's possible that you selected to permanently remember usb-creator's authentication (if usb-creator uses policykit rather than gksudo).00:32
qinjack____: Most easy in synaltic, left bottom offering filters00:32
qin*synaptic00:32
jack____qin, any cmdline equivalent?00:32
delacJordan_U: hmm, is that resetable?00:32
Jordan_Udelac: If that's the case then I think creating a new test user and trying to use usb-creator from that user would test that theory.00:33
The_Rufushow can I change the resolution of bash? I'm running server so it's terminal only (NO XWINDOWS) but no matter how I set my monitor, I can't see the first 10 characters00:33
Jordan_Udelac: I'm sure it is but I don't know how off hand. I'm looking now though.00:33
CortexGentoo64: i though I killed it but it seems to still be on when I see TOP again00:33
Gentoo64Cortex, did you choose "yes" to reload it?00:33
CortexGentoo64: No, I didn't. Should I?00:34
Gentoo64no00:34
Gentoo64try killall again00:34
qinjack____: not sure, will lurk into dpkg and apt man00:34
Gentoo64Cortex, keep top runing00:34
Gentoo64see if it pops up again00:34
zykotick9Gentoo64, i imagine indicator-applet will auto respawn00:34

moonunitzappai already have natty on it. is there a way to grab it without fresh install?  also are there any UI or themes i can get other than the stock ones?00:40
Gentoo64Cortex, i dont know. i think its the little icon bit00:40

Jordan_Udelac: If you change it to "auth_admin" or "auth_admin_keep" instead of "yes" then you will be prompted for a password.00:49
DebiansArmycortex I've read other posts on Indicator applet being high and overheats CPU.... extremely bad....00:50

=== wildbat is now known as wildbat_semi_afk
joallardzykotick9: I'll try that. I had forgotten I kind of "removed" the 'current' drivers.00:50

CortexThe weirdest part is that now it says that I've been using it for close to three hours when a minute ago it says an hour and a half00:51
sevithBah iptables ? Who uses them?00:51
sevithI love them.00:51
kingofswordshi ive just added ppa https://launchpad.net/~c-korn/+archive/ppa but only 3 programs are showing and there should be 400:51
dasbootHi all.  Is there any way to find out what is making the mousecursor interminably pinwheel? gnome,10.0400:51
delacJordan_U: I wonder why they changed it? is there some security related issues with just using "yes"?00:52
moonunitzappahow can i select all of the pakags in syn. im quite new to ubuntu00:52
kingofswordsis there s'thing im missing?00:52
Cortexshould I just reinstall ubuntu and hope this fixes the problem?00:52
Guest63648Quit marcelo00:52
Cortexis there any way to directly reinstall ubuntu ?00:52
sevithCortex, ? Whats the issue?00:53
Cortexsevith: indicator-applet keeps using up a lot of cpu. 90% +00:53
Jordan_Udelac: They removed the checkbox allowing you to permanently allow authorization for a given action in policykit in general. I don't know for sure what the default settin for usb-creator in 9.10 was.00:53
qinCortex: Is it unity?00:54
joallardIt's still not starting up. I see that "Stopping automatic crash report generation" returned [fail]. How can I find out the cause?00:54
sevithCortex, I see...Im having issues with the same indicator applet. It keeps crashing on mine00:54
Cortexqin: I'm using 11.04 in classic mode00:54
ObrienDavemoonunitzappa: just click the little box to the left of the packages and mark for installation. it will then show you the required packages that will be automatically downloaded and instaled00:54
moonunitzappaObrienDave: should i install all of those under ubuntustudio00:54
sevithmy CPU % is ok though00:54
sevithheats fine00:54
DebiansArmyCortex found what it is???? Indicator-Applet refers to the system tray or To ubuntu notifactions... Have you switched or edited the indicator-applet????00:55
qinCortex: Alt-F2, gnome-panel --replace, as far asi know it will restart indicarotrs too00:55
ObrienDavemoonunitzappa: not all at once. i suggest doing one at a time then reboot after each one.00:55
moonunitzappatheres like 20 haha00:55
CortexDebiansArmy: i don't think so i haven't done anything00:56

ObrienDavemoonunitzappa: yea i know. you only need to do -desktop -audio -video, etc.00:56
bazhangObrienDave, there is zero reason to reboot after installing a package from there00:56
qinsevith: Medicine?00:56
Jordan_Udelac: Indeed, looking at a 9.10 package the default was in fact "yes".00:56
CortexDebiansArmy: well, when I rebooted it said my network was using a .local domain and would shut down the app (not sure which one though)00:56
sevithqin, Lol.00:57
moonunitzappaok ty ObrienDave going to go try ti00:57
DebiansArmyCortex try what qin is asking that might work00:57
Cortexqin: did it and it said it had a problem with indicator-applet and if i wanted to delete it00:57
CortexDebiansArmy: just did.00:57
ObrienDavemoonunitzappa: wlcm00:57
ObrienDavebazhang: yea, but safer.00:57
bazhangmoonunitzappa, install as many as you wish, the ubuntustudio-desktop package will bring most in; there is no reason to reboot after installing a single package00:58
bazhangObrienDave, in no way at all.00:58
sevithDoes anyone use compiz?00:58
ObrienDavebazhang: ok, whatever00:58
bazhangsevith, whats the actual question00:58
joallardI can't get my system to boot after changing a driver. Installing it back doesn't work. I think it might be the X server, but can't tell. How do I find out the cause?00:58
bazhangObrienDave, please be more careful before offering such advice00:59
sevithbazhang, 11.04 broke compiz and my wireless along with my wired connections.00:59
qinCortex: Right click on panel and: Add to panel, this will show you what indicator you have installed, so you can "reattach" faulty one, or !resetpanel00:59
bazhangsevith, broke? as in cannot use unity?00:59
delacJordan_U: so, the question is, why the change? but, at least now I know that thecurrent situation is by design and not some usb-creator malfunction. thank you!00:59
ObrienDavebazhang: being safe is bad advice???00:59
sevithbazhang, Its the indicator applet. it fails. When it crashes it brings down my network interfaces too for some reason.00:59
sevithbazhang, I dont use unity. I dont like it at all.00:59
bazhangObrienDave, rebooting after installing a single package is bad advice, and no way safer.00:59
ObrienDavebazhang: how do you figure?01:00
bazhangObrienDave, completely unnecessary. lets move on please.01:00
Cortexqin: ok, it's showing me four different kinds of the indicator-applet01:00
ObrienDavebazhang: ok, whatever01:01

qinzykotick9: Experimenting with ksplice01:04

zykotick9qin, not for long.... :(01:04
qin!resetpanel | Cortex this will remove any modification from panel01:05
ubottuCortex this will remove any modification from panel: To reset the GNOME panel to defaults, type this in a !terminal: « gconftool --recursive-unset /apps/panel && killall gnome-panel »01:05
ObrienDavezykotick9: sorry, I'm not arguing about wether it is correct or not correct to reboot after installing. imho it is safer.01:05
qinzykotick9: Why?01:05
zykotick9qin, ksplic will be Oracle only soon01:05
DebiansArmyqin 2 years ago I see there was a lot of complaints about going to a applet indicator ... Users expressing uses to many resources and had the potential for cpu overload...01:05

muellibreath: sed is your friend01:09
breathmuelli : but u remain my best friends thanks i love u bye ;)01:09
muellibreath: maybe smth like sed -i 's/return=0/return=1/g' *.foo01:09
joallardbreath: Text editors depend on your preferences. Do you prefer something more simple and graphical or something more complex?01:10
qinzykotick9: I guess You right. /exec sudo reboot01:10
muellioh, didn't know it is so easy to become best friends :-)01:10
Cortexdamn it, what do i do now?01:10
cgrozabreath: you can achieve that with Emacs(recommended) or vim.01:11
bazhangCortex, what is the exact issue with the indicator applet01:11
breathMmM I'm not Good at english LooL didn't understand what u said joallard :-( :( but i heard a lot bout sed and muelli advissed me with it :)01:12

breathThanks babaei in tutorials i can see just :q i try it no work !! the last ! escaped ;( ;(01:13
joallardbreath: Sorry for that. Like babaei said, gedit is nice for simple stuff. If you want something a little more programming-oriented, I personally like geany.01:13
bazhangCortex, what other processes do you have running, ie major ones01:14
joallardbreath: By any chance, what's your primary language?01:14
Cortexnot much else, just Chrome01:14
kingofswordsim trying to run a script but when i run .chmod +x winepulse_installer.sh01:14

josewhich is the best path to install me own compiled programs (samba,apache..)01:18
escottjasongriffee, you would have to download and install an alternate gdm theme01:18
jose?01:18
DebiansArmyCortex if you allow this cpu to run hot like this for long it will burn on cpu...  Might want to go with earlier version of ubuntu or reinstall ubuntu...  Not for one min. would I allow my computer to keep hanging around 100% cpu usage the fan has to be going all the time...01:18

jasongriffeeescott: is there a guide for this?01:21
joseok thanks :), i dont want problems later with apache, mono paths..only ask for that, thanks cgroza escott01:21
DebiansArmyCortex not good feel underneath were the cpu and gpu are that will tell me how hot this is ...  This could cause fan burn out and kill cpu rare... still it is no good... When you rebot is dues the fan startup right away???01:22
Monotoko[iOS]Jose, you shouldn't have any problems if the other programs know where apache is01:22
CortexDebiansArmy: yes it does01:23
josecool i go to do that, thanks 4 all01:23
bazhangCortex, system---administration---users and groups---add  log out, log in with new user01:23
escottjasongriffee, don't know of one off hand. also 11.10 is planning to switch to lightdm so if you plan to upgrade you might want to wait before changing the theme01:23
DebiansArmyCortex not good I don't know how old the machine is ,but if this is new I would reinstall or face burning up cpu....01:24
rosstaylorbazhang : thank you!01:24
bazhangDebiansArmy, a reinstall is the last step, not the first one01:24
Cortexbazhang: ok, will do01:24

DebiansArmyth0r: Not even close were did you get this number... I'm a bench tech..... There is no laptop cpu meant to run this high for this long....  at over 80c it is to notify you that your running hot .... Yes I have seen mine run at 90c on a video game, but on a applet no...01:32
dzuphello i went from maverick to natty, but i found out the gnome is getting slow ...can i not have this new gnome unity or whatever is call ?01:33
bazhanghttps://help.ubuntu.com/community/CheckInstall jukebox-zero read this?01:33
eryn_1983_fl_2no...01:33
eryn_1983_fl_2its not plug and play I got to cinfugre the wifi01:33
eryn_1983_fl_2if that were the care it would connect  automaticcally01:33
th0rDebiansArmy: they run 90C on cpu load, it doesn't matter if it is a video game or an applet. Bench specs are conservative, and even at that, 100% cpu shouldn't push the temps that high if there is any circulation at all. Certainly no reason to panic someone trying to troubleshoot01:33
eryn_1983_fl_2I got not place for the funkdy  icon01:33
Cortexbazhang: ah, indicator-applet isn't on anymore01:34

tbruff13hey help can someone tell me a program where i can convert decimals to fraction in linux01:36
bazhangDebiansArmy, lets take this chat to #ubuntu-offtopic please01:37
jukebox-zerobazhang: Yeah, no dice. What I'm doing is compiling mplayer and need to specify that it provides both mplayer and mencoder so my command it like so: sudo checkinstall --pkgname=mplayer and --provides= and that's where I'm stuck. I used the prompt checkinstall gives me without the provides command and entered "mplayer mencoder" but it gave me syntax error. Not sure if I need to quote it, or commas. man checkinstall, info ch01:37
jukebox-zeroeckinstall and google are not help so far. You CAN specify more than one provides right?01:37

devralis it possible to use freenx-server on Ubuntu Server 10.04?01:39
MestreLioni dont get the point in ./configure --prefix=/opt when installing from source. If in Linux an app's files are scattered all over the fs (/usr/bin, /usr/lib, /etc. /var, etc), what is the point in chaging the prefix. What will this change do? What will go to /opt and what will go elsewhere?01:39
bazhangjukebox-zero, sorry to say I will be of little avail on that subject, please repeat to the channel every so often; I usually get a PPA or the mplayer from medibuntu.org iirc01:39
joallardI can't boot at init. How do I find the cause?01:40
jukebox-zerobazhang: no worries, thanks anyway.01:40
Jordan_UMestreLion: /opt/ (and /usr/local) will include directories like those in your main root, so you will have /usr/local/bin /usr/local/lib and /usr/local/etc/ .01:41
bahaubuntu 11.4 with gnome3, is it a good thing to try?01:42
eryn_1983_fl_2so nobody know my answer?01:42
bazhangbaha NO01:42
jukebox-zeroDoes anyone know if you can specify more than one provides in a pkg built with checkinstall, and if so, what's the syntax?01:42
bazhang!gnome3 | baha01:42
ubottubaha: 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.01:42

bahabazhang, maybe debian?01:43
Jordan_UMestreLion: Yes.01:43
babaeibaha: I tried it a month or so ago. It wasn't fully ready to go, but worked OK. imho, I like Unity better (better use of the screen), but I like both better than the old Gnome.01:43
bazhangbaha no idea, ask in #debian01:43

bahababaei, bazhang , thanks01:44
babaeibaha: if you want to give it a go, try it from the PPA, but there is a chance you could wreck your install and have to wipe and reinstall.01:44
bazhangbabaei, which is why its completely unsupported here01:45
babaeibazhang: right.01:45

jasongriffeei was changing login wallpaper, used something that looked like reg wallpaper changer. now can't stop it from loading on boot?01:48
joallardurlin2u: Yes, this is a standard-boot install, not wubi. I don't understand what you mean by "reloading grub"01:48
urlin2ujoallard, you can reload the mbr with grub fairly easy would you like alink?01:48

bazhangfatih1993, what client01:53
MestreLionJordan_U:  so i guess its pretty "safe" to install to default /usr/local, since tree is already there... no fear in "messing"  a sys the tree since tree is already there, empty. But... what about desktop integration? will source files from upstream include things like .desktop files, mime types, etc?01:54
dcabotHi folks01:54
MestreLion(my question is actually "how would a ./configure && make && make install be different from a .deb packaged downloaded and installed via Synaptic)01:55
fatih1993bazhang, for example to access a channel we use /join #channel ,  to log in what should i do? like that?01:55
dcabotHas anyone  seen a problem with pptp vpns on 11.04?01:55

bazhangfatih1993, which irc client01:55
fatih1993NickServ01:56
fatih1993FreeNode01:56
escottMestreLion, deb has a database of where every file is stored and what it is needed for. make install does not01:56
bazhangfatih1993, thats not an irc client01:56

dcabotThe LCP Config Ack comes back, but pppd never sees it01:57
fatih1993bazhang, xchat01:57
escottTravis-42, start by uninstalling firefox and then try to install the last firefox 5 deb you have in /var/cache/apt01:57
bazhangfatih1993, are you registered?01:57

bazhangfatih1993, okay----> xchat menu -->network list --->ubuntu servers--> click edit, add nick:pw in the server field01:58
MestreLionescott: that why im having trouble learning the "proper" way to install from source. Most tutorials out there are too generic.. they dont even mention tools like checkinstall. I would like to install stuff using the most "ubuntu tools" and infrasctructure as possible01:58
anonBOY:)01:58
jukebox-zeroDoes anyone know if you can specify more than one provides in a pkg built with checkinstall, and if so, what's the syntax? I think I'm going to try supplying the argument more than once like: sudo checkinstall --pkgname=mplayer --provides=mencoder --provides=mplayer but I'm worried it will only accept the first argument without throwing any errors.01:59
escottMestreLion, the only people who do their own builds are developers or (the very rare) individual who has built a system from scratch01:59
escottMestreLion, what you should do is lookup the ubuntu/debian packaging instructions and make a package for your application and then install it that way (ie roll your own deb)02:00
MestreLionescott: nooo, i dont want to build the whole system... just a few, hand-selected packages... simple stuff, mostly small apps or upgraded versions02:00
escottMestreLion, otherwise install to /opt so you can clean up easily02:00
MrGeneralfolks, I installed chrome here, how can I change the default browser ?02:01
somsipMrGeneral: to what?02:01
escottMrGeneral, its in the settings application. you could also search for preferred applications02:02
MrGeneralsomsip:  I just want to set it as default02:02
MrGeneralhmm02:02
MestreLioni wonder what is wrong with chromium for so many people wanting to install chrome instead02:02
MrGeneralits chromium02:03
MrGeneral:P02:03
somsipMrGeneral: and there is no option under Preferences to Set As Default?02:03
MestreLionescott: ive been reading several wiki's and ubuntu's docs about that... thats where i learned about checkinstall... by the way... is that still good to use? or too outdated?02:03
MrGeneralit is somsip but didnt work02:03
MrGeneralbut its working now, I did it other way02:04
somsipMrGeneral: k02:04
MrGeneralthanks tho02:04
fatih1993bazhang, thanks a lot. done!02:04
escottMestreLion, ive never actually rolled my own package, but i believe that is how it is done. you can also lookup who was the debian packager for the versions you just want to update. there may already be a .deb in debian testing for the newer version02:04
eryn_1983_fl_2no workie on the cli stuff02:05
vectoryhi, reinstalling grub from livecd. in grub, `find /boot/grub/stage1' gave hd0,5 iirc it should be something else. is there anyway to confirm which sdaX hd0,x is?02:05
MestreLionescott: there are debs for newer version... but only for newer distros (Oneiric)... i use Lucid, and i dont wanto to upgrade the whole system just to get upgrades of a few packages02:06
escottMestreLion, you can always ignore dependencies... its risky because things might be broken.02:06
vectoryi may just have installed grub to a swap partition, if X=Y for hd0,X and sdaY02:07

MestreLionvectory: are you sure you using ubuntu? stage1, hd0, etc, are legacy grub jargon... and ubuntu uses grub202:07
urlin2uvectory, what guide are you using?02:07

Tim55how to change the disconnect timer?02:07
escottvectory, you dont install grub to partition numbers. you install it to the mbr. it should be grub-install /dev/sda02:08
vectoryescott, it was a reinstall, so i pointed it to the partition /boot is on02:08
vectoryor so i planned02:08
escottvectory, and if you did install to a swap partition just install to the correct one and mkswap again on your next reboot02:08
nbest Hello.  Can a linux application read/write to a NTFS disk with windows files, with no issues or risks?02:09
escottvectory, you don't point it to /boot. it finds /boot by virtue of /boot being mounted. you point it at the disk (no partition number) it will complain rather loudly if you try to install to a partition02:09
urlin2unbest, pretty much, within reason.02:09
bazhangnbest, of course02:09
nbest hmmm, what's the 'within reason' urlin2u ?02:09
escottnbest, not with no risk02:09
nbest oh so there is risk :(02:10
vectoryescott: so there is no chance it coulda found /boot on a swap partition? hope it notices a swap partition02:10
escottnbest, there is no documentation of how ntfs works, and ubuntu cannot repair an ntfs partition02:10
bazhangnbest, minimal02:10
=== matt_ is now known as Guest86224
escottnbest, you should have a working windows system if you intent to use ntfs. thats the main thing02:11
Pippi_Longstocki got a problem, im afraid of updating from 10.4 to 11 something02:11
escottPippi_Longstock, try the livecd thats what it is for02:11
vectorywhats the problem02:11
urlin2unbest, windows has files that rad the HD basically if you added a lot of data, from linux you might have some problems, the description you give is not complete, usually a shred partition is preferred.02:11
Pippi_Longstocki think if i update all my settings get messed up02:11
prezidentwhats up everybody when i first got my system i thought i was never going to use ubuntuone now i kind of want it i deleted it before is there a way to get it back i tried looking it up but didn't work.02:11

bazhangprezident, from the package manager02:12
nbest escott  my intended use right now is to use clonezilla to clone my new pc's HDD to a storage external HDD but i don't want to mess it up in the process :P02:12
paijem-cantikhello Tim55, what your problem ?02:12
prezidentive tried not there02:12
bazhangTim55, you provided way too few details02:12
fatih1993i compiled a C text. It seems light green in terminal. Which command make it run?02:12
escottnbest, clonezilla is not ntfs-3g its a bit-level copy, and is completely safe02:12
escottfatih1993, ./program_name02:13
xanguaprezident: if you install ubuntu-desktop should install all default packages like ubuntu-one02:13
urlin2unbest, that is just a ntfs no problem, is it a OS though on the external?02:13
prezidenti deleted it02:13
Pippi_Longstocki need tht02:13
prezidentxangua i removed it02:13
xanguaprezident: install it then02:13

cpareHello Everyone02:19
Hot2TrotMestreLion: I know I have it installed, I did what you said, but it doesn't appear to be making the text editing in alpine vi02:19
MestreLionHot2Trot: update-alternatives must be run with sudo02:20
Hot2TrotMestreLion: I did that02:20
paijem-cantikTim55 : can you paste output $pdbedit -v -u username ?02:21
escottHot2Trot, yes02:21
cpareQuestion: Why don't I see thumbnail images when I browse a remote share (SMB)02:21
Hot2TrotMestreLion: though it appears that it did make my command line commands use vi editing02:21
MestreLionHot2Trot: ive never used alpine... but if that software is meant to be a vi replacement, i hope it adds itself to update-alternatives list, so you can choose it02:22
Hot2TrotMestreLion: I see02:22
MestreLionHot2Trot: that depends on the command you use... some rely on the EDITOR enviroment var (as someone here suggested), some use the symlinks that update-alternatives provide02:23
escottcpare, its a nautilus preference, but to make the thumbnail the entire file has to be downloaded02:23
MestreLioncpare: Nautilus -> Edit > Preferences > View > Preview02:24
cpareescott - will it build a thumbnail database file for future references?02:25
jukebox-zeroLet me try asking this a different way: If i install this using checkinstall --pkgname=mplayer --provides=mencoder will apt-get, aptitude, dpkg, et al have any trouble or complain if there were a pkg that depended on mplayer? It looks at the pkg name mroe than the provides, right?02:25
MestreLionbut i *strongly* recommend you NOT to change from Local Drives Only to All Drives... as escott said, files would be downloaded for preview generation... and in remote servers, this is a BAD idea02:25
rosstaylori am currently downloading a torrent file, but it's incredibly slow. Is it possible to somehow increase my downloading speed?02:25

lfaraoneadante: all computers should pass memtest02:28
lfaraoneadante: does it load up the test at all?02:28
MestreLionGutenTag: unless youre really sure what youre doing, stick with Software Center and / or Synaptics... "3rd party software downloaded from web" is not the *nix way, and may mess your system02:28
MestreLionGutenTag: and hadoop IS in the official repositories02:30
rosstaylorok thank you02:30

Pippi_Longstockbut witha Gui, qt or gtk or something?02:31
escottcpare, it should02:31
lfaraoneadante: sounds like you may have a ram problem :) does Ubuntu work properly at that computer?02:31
MestreLionGutenTag: for 90% (or more) of the apps you need are avaliable through Software Center... that is the first place to loob for before going to the World Wild Web ;)02:31
jukebox-zeroHow about this, I've been doing some searching, does anyone know of a pkg that has more than one provides I could look at as an example. Tovid came to mind, but it appears to be in the description only. Or is there a better way to look at that than aptitude show * or apt-cache show *?02:31
MestreLion(pun intended)02:31
adantelfaraone: haven't actually tried, gonna give it a go in a bit02:31
lfaraoneadante: yeah, memtest is supported on Intel Macs.02:31
GutenTagMestreLion: hadoop just unpacks, though, I believe.  That said, can I use Software Center / Synaptics to download a specific version of hadoop and install it?  Do either of those two options equate to using 'sudo apt-get'  ?02:32
escottPippi_Longstock, there is the disk utility but i dont know that it supports mdadm. generally raid is something done through the terminal. if you need help for that ask02:32
MestreLionjukebox-zero: i guess wine does that.... version from PPA provides both wine and wine1.302:32

MestreLionlfaraone: Linux is GPL'd... meaning if you modify and redistribute it, you must provide cource code of it02:46
repozitorwhat U mean exactly?02:46
lfaraoneMestreLion: right, but you can build a distribution of software around it and not GPL that software.02:46
bazhangrepozitor, ask in #freenode , you are there already02:46
lfaraonemrdeb: why what?02:46
urlin2urepozitor, http://freenode.net/faq.shtml02:47
MestreLionlfaraone: only if you develop from scratch all the software around it02:47
lfaraoneMestreLion: in the case of the Kindle, TiVo, most Android devices, they do give oyou the source to the kernel, and their modifications to the same. But they are not oblidged to give you the entire distribution.02:47
escottlfaraone, i wouldn't know. im strictly no apple here02:48
_alexleon_ima use virtual box :D02:48
MestreLionlfaraone: TiVo is another issue... they used a very nasty feature to prevent you from changing the code... that was one of the main reasons GPL3 was born02:48
lfaraoneMestreLion: so I could take Ubuntu, create a proprietary GUI or killer app on top of it, and as long as it doesn't link with any GPL libraries, I can distribute it all on a CD and call it lfaraone linux and not give you the source for that bit. I could also forbid you from making verbatim copies of that CD.02:49
MestreLionlfaraone: they are not obliged to give any code that is not GLP'd... but that also means they cant use any GLP'd sogtware to build it ;)02:50
bazhanglets get back on topic please02:50
[THC]AcidRainim not sure if this is the right place to ask this.  but i think it has a high relation to ubuntu.  im going to be developing a website, but thats aside from the point.  i want to create a search engine on my site to search within the site.  is it possible to have user input search across directories and files on my box?02:50
bazhang[THC]AcidRain, #ubuntu-offtopic02:50
lfaraone[THC]AcidRain: no, and yes. I think there is a web development channel.02:50
[THC]AcidRainlfaraone, could you tell me that channel?02:51
bazhangand there is a GPL channel02:51
_alexleon_yo ppl unity still sucks?02:51
lfaraone[THC]AcidRain: I have no idea. try #web, #webdev, and other similiar things.02:51
bazhang_alexleon_, actual support question?02:51
MestreLionlfaraone: true... but that means making a GUI that would be completely "detached" from the rest of the distro...02:51

_alexleon_i mean does unity still give problems?02:53
_alexleon_cuz last time it gave me many :/02:53
bazhang_alexleon_, give us details, we will troubleshoot them02:53
lfaraone_alexleon_: that is incredibly vague. it works for a large number of people. many others have issues. as is the same with everything else.02:53
bazhang_alexleon_, "sucks" is not much of a detail02:53
escott_alexleon_, its not unity that usually causes the problems its compiz and graphics support. that and some people just dont like it02:53

edbianNeoncamouflage: But really I recommend turning of GDM as well.  It's a waste of resources03:02
NeoncamouflageI use 10.10, not 11.04. And what's GDM?03:03
somsipNeoncamouflage: or maybe a lightweight replacement like SLiM03:03
edbianNeoncamouflage: GDM is the login screen.03:03

NeoncamouflageThat I did try to google.03:10
escottNeoncamouflage, you could just uninstall your greater or boot to text03:10
somsipNeoncamouflage: add exec startx to .bash_profile.03:11
escottNeoncamouflage, booting to text is probably the easiest, just modify /etc/default/grub to set text as the boot option and rerun update-grub03:11

nekrohey guys, i have a question03:14
edbiannekro: yeah?03:14
nekroim having issues03:14
escottNeoncamouflage, i would worry about adding startx to .bash_profile. what happens when x fails to start, or when you login to multiple consoles03:14
nekrojust installed ubuntu 10.10 to my HDD03:15
nekrovia USB stick, and im getting a geom error03:15
nekroif i don't boot with the USB stick in, i get no error, it just sits there03:15
escottnekro, a geometry error? what exactly does it say03:15
Kamikazehey all... I just finished installation of latest version of Ubuntu, the thing is this, My partition "D" and "E" are NTFS is that ok? because I'm coming from Windows Vista and I did't format that partitions, sure i change the format of that partitions that are NTFS ?03:15
nekrogeom error. and then it sits there03:15
urlin2uKamikaze, ubuntu wont install to a ntfs03:16
=== Singham is now known as Atharva
escottKamikaze, you can't/shouldn't install ubuntu to D or E, but otherwise its fine03:16
Neoncamouflageescott, if x fails for some reason and it's in bashrc, would it crash Ubuntu?03:16
escottnekro, have you tried reinstalling grub?03:16
NeoncamouflageI would assume it would just stay on the command interface.03:16
nekroit won't let me03:16
nekrohmm..03:17
escottNeoncamouflage, well usually startx would fail and drop you back to bash. but what if x starts locking the entire box up?03:17
nekrocan i use F8 to bring up a boot menu like windows?03:17
Kamikazeurlin2u, no i have installed ubuntu on C and it automatically changed the type of partition and it installed there, but i have partitiot E and D where are my pics songs etc... is that fine?03:17
escottnekro, i think its the space key?03:17
Kamikazeurlin2u,  and they are NTFS03:18
nekrodamn03:18
urlin2uKamikaze, is your question will ubuntu read those partitions?03:18

Sna4x8I am having a grub nightmare.  I tried to upgrade from 10.04 to 10.10 last night using the update manager.  After that my system would not boot.  This is standard for me - every upgrade since 8.x for me, I've had to manually boot into rescue mode and grub-install on my mdadm raid.  Now, however, update-grub2 is not finding my Ubuntu installation.  This has never happened before.03:18
escottnekro, or maybe escape. can you tell if the kernel is loading?03:18
nekroit doesn't load past bios03:18
nekrothis is my first time running linux03:19
nekroever03:19
escottNeoncamouflage, well presumably you won't do it on your 5th, 6th, 7th, ... reboot03:19
Kamikazeurlin2u, i already checked it reads everything is fine as should be, im just wondering is this how it supposed to be? or i should change the type of that partitions that are remaining NTFS now03:19
escottnekro, so grub isn't coming up at all. try to reinstall grub. thats always the first thing to do03:19
escott!grub | nekro03:19

nekroi can't install it if the machine won't boot >->03:20
escottNeoncamouflage, it can be done, just keep those rescue cds around, or be prepared to work in single mode or ...03:20
urlin2uKamikaze, if you just a a ubuntu install the other two partitions are okay as ntfs, uuntu can't defragg them though if that matters.03:20
nekrobe right back03:20
escottnekro, you install grub (not the whole os) from the live usb03:20
nekroi think it was corrupted accidentally03:21
nekrobrb03:21
escottnekro, this is what the error means: This error message will occur if the location of the Stage 2 or Stage 1.5 is not in the area supported by reading the disk with the BIOS directly. This could occur because the BIOS translated geometry has been changed by the user or the disk is moved to another machine or controller after installation, or GRUB was not installed using itself (if it was, the Stage 2 version of this error would have been03:21
escott seen during that process and it would not have completed the install).03:21

Kamikazeurlin2u, if i change them to ext4 it wont erase any of my files right? they'll survive ?)03:26
Jordan_Unekro: Why did you install Ubuntu 10.10 rather than 11.04 ?03:26
urlin2uKamikaze, nope changing partitions types wipes them.03:26
r3b00tCaptainkrtek, and there is another unsecure WAP right by me and it wont connect to that either03:26
nekroa friend said it was better03:26
GutenTagahh, thanks guyes.  That said, we double clicked on it and it seemed that it installed it (although in my ~/Download directory).  Would that behavior be expected?  Also, for jdk-7, should I just then grab the compressed binary tar.gz and unpack it appropriately?03:26
Kamikazeurlin2u, wips them? lool i have my whole life in that 2 partitions )03:26
escottKamikaze, you generally cannot "just change" partitions. upgrades do exist for ext2->ext3->ext4->btrfs but not for other combinations03:26
Lasersnekro: There are no reasons to stay on 10.10.  Either you go with 10.04 (LTS) or 11.04 -- Or switch to a different distro. Just saying.03:27
Captainkrtekr3b00t: using any manual connection settings? like manual dhcp?03:27
urlin2uKamikaze, you would have to back up the files03:27

escottKamikaze, generally speaking no. for a number of reasons03:30
Captainkrtekyou may have to restart after03:30
nekroi mightve yanked it out too soon03:30

escottKamikaze, its not something one usually worries about but yes it is possible.03:31
Captainkrtekr3b00t: right... any way to connect it via ethernet?03:31

urlin2unekro, can you describe that question about a grub install?04:07
nekroim installing it FROM the usb TO the HDD04:07
Kamikazeurlin2u, is that just seems to me or it is really lol i think my PC barely runs this OS? is this too heavy for my PC? my pc is core i7 n 8gb ram, and 1gb video, sometimes when i close a dialog or search for something it takes a few seconds very a few is that means my PC weak for this OS ?04:07
hyliannekro, ohh, i do that all the time. then I do suggest installing grub, yes. I have never had any problems in doing that. :)04:08
urlin2unekro, honestly I just don't understand you.04:08
nekroInstall GRUB boot loader to the master boot record? <yes> <no>04:08

nekroit was broken windows install04:10
nekroi switched the primary boot device from the USB to the HDD and nothing happens04:10

Sna4x8I'm completely stumped, any help is appreciated.  I used the update manager to upgrade from 10.04 to 10.10, and now grub will not detect my raid array.  I can mount the raid array fine, and see all my files, I just can't get grub to generate a good grub.cfg.04:13
wadthanks04:13
Jordan_Uwad: You're welcome.04:13
Jordan_USna4x8: What is wrong with the grub.cfg? What happens when you try to boot?04:13
hyliannekro, from what I have read this could also be an error with having the auto detect setting in your bios. here is what i am quoting from: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/linux-general-1/grub-geom-error-287509/04:14
nekroautodetect? where at?04:14
Sna4x8Jordan_U: I get cannot find boot device.04:15
Jordan_USna4x8:04:15
jukebox-zerorww: thanks, mplayer v4.4.3 is up and running like a charm and satisfies a dependency for mencoder. :)04:15
urlin2uhylian, that is grub-legav=cy04:15
urlin2ulegacy04:15
Sna4x8Jordan_U: That's the case for me with every single update, though.  I always have to reinstall grub on the raid array.04:15
hylianurlin2u, ahh, thanks, didn't see that.04:15
Sna4x8Jordan_U: Typically I just mount the raid array, chroot, and grub-install ; update-grub04:16
nekrohylian, set LBA to off then?04:16
Jordan_USna4x8: "Cannot find boot device" is not an error message that grub gives. Please copy and paste (using http://pastebin.ubuntu.com for multiple lines) the exact error message.04:16
urlin2unekro, the only way any of us wikll understand you is if you run the script two of us have suggested.04:16

Jordan_Unekro: Have you tried removing the internal drive from the BIOS's boot order rather than removing it physically?04:18
nekrohmm...04:18
hyliannekro, from more research, that might solve your problem, but another problem is some bioses not being able to use uuid numbers, in which case your only option is to dig up lilo. it's worth a try to do that first, set the bios yourself instead of auto detect.04:19

crushey guys, are there any official documentation to getting gnome3 shell running on 11.04? i tried with the gnome3 team ppa and it hosed my install04:21
hyliannekro lilo is and older stand by for grub. uuid is a universal i.d. number for your hard drive. some bios'es can't handle it, so you would have to use the old standard /dev/hda1/ (for instance)04:21
cruss/are/is04:21
slipkid08but Ubuntu needs to embed wine inside their fresh install04:21
slipkid08lol04:21
wildbat!gnome3 | crus04:21
ubottucrus: 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.04:21
Jordan_Uhylian: UUIDs have nothing to do with this particular problem.04:21
nekrohylian: you guys don't seem to udnerstand, i've never ran linux on this machine, and the old OS was windows, which corrupted04:21
slipkid08What exactly is GNOME?04:22

hylianJordan_U, great, that helps. please enlighten me or nekro though, sure could use the help.04:22

crusslipkid08: www.gnome.org, it's a desktop environment.04:22
hyliannekro, i see. ok, let's take this a little slower.04:22
wildbatcrus: i doubt it will be04:23
Jordan_Unekro: Can you possibly burn and boot from a CD?04:23
slipkid08so GNOME is actually just the "Point-and-click"?04:23

nekroits true. nothing happens04:23
nekrohmm...04:23
crusslipkid08: for a better understanding you would be better off visiting the website i replied to you with04:23
hyliannekro, do you have 2 hard drives?04:24
nekronope04:24
slipkid08Check your CD/DVD Cables and make sure none are turned upside down04:24
nekroone hard drive, and a USB drive it THINKS is a HDD04:24
Jordan_Unekro: "nothing happens" is almost never a useful description. You insert a CD, press the power button and ... ?04:24
nekrothey can't be upside down04:24
slipkid08ok04:24
slipkid08so the problem is that it's trying to continue booting from the USB, correct?04:24
hyliannekro, yeah, they are actually designed to do that. is this a live cd image put on the key, or was it an attempt to install ubuntu straight to the usb key?04:25
nekroJordan_U, it boots, loads the hardware analyzer (shows my hardware) and then hangs04:25

cjsOk, simpler question: how do I tell what line in /etc/apt/sources.list is bringing in a particular package?04:27
urlin2uslipkid08, I like helpng but you have to know when to hold them so to speak. ;-)04:27
Jordan_Unekro: Can you take the internal drive out of the problematic machine and put it in a working machine?04:27
nekroi only have this machine04:27
nekrothe previous machine it was in worked04:27
nekrothis machine and the problematic one04:27
slipkid08I do this for a living. I deal with these problems daily. Just trying to help him troubleshoot is all. Been doing it for 15 years. :)04:28
hylianJordan_U, i think he actually had it installed to the usb key, thereby actually installing grub to it's master boot record, so this is probably not a live cd image unetbootin type install.04:28
Jordan_Ucjs: "apt-cache policy packagename" will give enough information that you should be able to determine the line in the sources.list (or in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/foo.lst ).04:28
* hylian must drift off to the land of nod.04:30
nekrohylian: its installing from the USB to ym SATA04:30
cjsJordan_U: Thanks. So the new 1.2 one comes from lucid-updates/universe, and the old 1.0 one comes from natty/universe. What does this mean?04:30
hyliannekro, it might actually be the cd drive that is causing this error. I would love to help you further, but I need to leave. :(04:31
cjsJordan_U: Oh, wait, I'm misreading it, I think....04:31
hyliannekro, if you have the time, try this install again after removing the cd/dvd drive.04:31
Jordan_Unekro: You are able to boot from the USB drive if you unplug the internal drive?04:31
cjsJordan_U: Oh, got it. The "100 /var/lib/dpkg/status" for my new version means I must have grabbed a package file and installed it manually.04:31

FFTaiyeah, I'd have to play around a bit with it to know what's going on, i was just following the wiki for what he wanted to do05:09
usr13!webmin | TBotNik05:09
ubottuTBotNik: webmin is no longer supported in Debian and Ubuntu. It is not compatible with the way that Ubuntu packages handle configuration files, and is likely to cause unexpected issues with your system.05:09
cire_thanks usr 1305:09
Jordan_Unekro: I'm thinking that it's most likely a buggy BIOS which passes a garbage value via the dl register (which is where the BIOS is supposed to store the number of the drive that was booted from).05:09
urlin2u_aaron_, wht's up.05:10
urlin2uwhat's05:10

_aaron_urlin2u, I'm looking for information on making a ubuntu RIS server to install muti OS's05:11
usr13!swat | TBotNik05:11
ubottuTBotNik: Samba is the way to cooperate with Windows environments. Links with more info: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/MountWindowsSharesPermanently and https://help.ubuntu.com/10.04/serverguide/C/windows-networking.html - Samba can be administered via the web with SWAT.05:11
ParkerRO.O Hey KittyGirl05:11
FFTaidid you build a config file?05:11
Jordan_Unekro: By installing boot code which ignores what the BIOS passes in the dl register and simply assumes that it needs to read from the first drive.05:11

FFTaito be honest, this might be a bit above your head05:12

Karen_mParkerR, ok i will google that05:13
FFTailet me install it just so i can see what it does05:13
TBotNikusr13: Ur right on that, both those blot the smb.conf with useless and conflicting commands and so it never works.05:13

FFTaiso I just got a mobo with an hdmi port05:40
Jordan_UFFTai: If you can find an NVidia card nvidia-settings has an overscan correction option.05:40
FFTaihrm, that's a good idea05:40
Jordan_UFFTai: From searching around it appears to be possible with intel cards as well, though more difficult.05:42
FFTaiyeah, a nvidia card with hdmi might be the only option in this case...or just live with the task bars slightly out of reach05:43

r3b00twell I had this exact same friggen CD install of ubuntu and had wifi...05:50
r3b00tnow it wont work05:50
lewis93ParkerR, could I run Windows inside of Ubuntu just for iTunes, or is there no such thing?05:50
Jordan_Ur3b00t: System Settings > Additional Drivers05:50
ParkerRlewis93, well even if it did launch you wouldnt be able to sync05:51
lewis93ParkerR, why not?05:51
Jordan_Ulewis93: Yes, using Virtualbox.05:51
ParkerRlewis93, yes with vmware player or virtualbox05:51
ParkerRvmware player has better USB support05:51

ParkerRlewis93, banshee or rhythmbox with libgpod should sync music05:53
FFTaiand it should sync with your iPod05:53
Jordan_Ubullgard4_: Is it the only thing greyed out? Do you have playback paused instead of completely stopped?05:53
ParkerRAnd you can use libimboiledevice to install apps05:53
ParkerRideviceinstaller05:53
r3b00tanyone have any idea05:54
lewis93ParkerR, how do I get those things? Would it be better to do it that way or should I use amarok like FFTai suggested?05:54
bullgard4_Jordan_U: No, almost all entries of Audacity > Effect menu are grayed out.05:54
Jordan_Ubullgard4_: Then you probably have playback paused but not stopped. Hit the stop button.05:55
FFTaitry both ways and see what you like lewis05:55
ParkerRlewis93, if you are going for natively syncing apps ideviceinstaller is what you need05:55

r3b00tits the same Ive been using for over a year06:47
r3b00tthe same one that works on my other laptop, my phone, my tablet06:48
somsipr3b00t: definitely worthwhile removing password for testing. I've had some laptops with some OSes just refuse to connect to a WPA SSID06:48
r3b00twell i refuse to NOT have security06:48
somsipr3b00t: then you won't know if it's a password issue or not06:48
betanickr3b00t: just for a quick test06:49

tensorpuddingr3b00t: are you sure it's not that your wifi is disabled?07:12
thrasher456@darpella if u cant install by USB and also cant burn DVD then best would be to get oracle vm machine and install ubuntu07:12
r3b00tno because it shows a list of networks to connect to. I put my WPA password in and it keeps popping up for me to enter it07:13
r3b00ti removed the security on my network and it still wouldnt connect07:13
tensorpuddingr3b00t: uh07:13
tensorpuddingr3b00t: if a list of networks show up, then the driver is loaded07:13

tensorpuddingi don't know about that07:17
r3b00tbut when I pull out the network cable it drops07:17
tensorpuddingif it had a link it'd have a bit more information wouldn't it07:17
ikoniar3b00t: the bad news is the router is not taking it onboard, which is why you don't have an assocaited accesspoint, or ip address07:17

shomonI can't add the ppa, because the port for the key server is blocked by my company firewall07:19
ikoniar3b00t: well, I wouldn't say causing it, however, certainly not working with it07:19
r3b00tthen why cant I connect to my apartment's free wifi? its an unsecured network07:19
betanickr3b00t: mac filter?07:19

ikoniar3b00t: just step back for a minute07:20
josehow i can do that ikonia ?07:20
ikoniajose: do what ?07:21
ikoniar3b00t: so blacnknyellow is the network you want to connect to, yes/no07:21
josecan i install smbd service in etc.init.d?07:21
ikoniajose: yes07:21
ikoniajose: it's just a script07:21
shomonurlin2u, can I do something like gpg --keyserver hkp://keyserver.ubuntu.com:80 --recv-keys  MYKEY07:21
r3b00tyes07:22
urlin2ushomon, I wouldn't know.07:22
r3b00tbut also to any other network I need.. because I use this netbook for wardriving07:22
ikoniar3b00t: it's currently running without any encyption yes/no07:22
shomonok no problem, thanks urlin2u07:22
urlin2ushomon, np.07:22
r3b00tno its WPA right now07:22
ikoniar3b00t: right - so the output of iwconfig shows it's not using any encyption,07:23
josei look for information, any suggestions?07:23
ikoniar3b00t: Encryption key:off07:23
ikoniajose: you need to create your own script07:23
ikoniajose: if you're building samba from source code you should know what you're doing - this is basic stuff07:23
r3b00tk07:23
ikoniar3b00t: so that's possibly why it's not currently associated07:24
osmosis_paulAnother thing, it is possible made that the shortcut bar of ubuntu 11.04 show more quick?07:24
r3b00tI just selected WPA and typed my password in07:24
r3b00tand its not connecting07:24
betanickr3b00t: google modprobe broadcom :)07:25

ikoniajose: ok, well, get on with it07:27
ikoniar3b00t: I guess the obvious question is first, is anything else connected to this router ?07:27
betanickikonia: does airmon-ng work?07:27
betanickr3b00t: does airmon-ng work?07:28
ikoniabetanick: I thought that was for cisco chipsets to be honest, I don't know07:28
r3b00tyeah usually my phone, tablet and macbook.. but right now just my imac hard wired into it07:28

betanickikonia: modprobe?07:28
ikoniabetanick: what about modprobe ?07:28
betanickikonia: what's for cisco chipsets?07:29

betanickikonia: nope07:29
r3b00tif I dont have the network cable plugged in I cant ping the router07:29

Kanzarhi all, newbie trying to set up a VPN on a host1plus vps. I'm using this guide https://help.ubuntu.com/10.04/serverguide/C/openvpn.html but am stuck at where I need to edit the server.conf. I don't understand what I should be changing the IPs to, as I don't -know- what the IPs should be, or if they are just there for the VPN to assign... or something. And I can't find some of the options to07:37
Kanzaredit either.07:37
doriteyDon't be ridiculous. All I did was a funny greeting. Your complaining that I happened to spout ONE LINE that wasn't ubuntu support-related is detracting more from the point of this channel than anything I ever did.07:38
betanickr3b00t: ya sry you didn't get it07:38
doriteyI'm here to ask questions and provide support, so there's no need to complain.07:38
ikoniadoritey: you've done one pointless line, I'm asking you not to conntinue it07:38
r3b00tnow if it works in XP (my dual boot) then its an ubuntu issue right?07:38
betanickr3b00t: have you tried madwifi?07:38
doriteyAnd I'm asking you not to nitpick at stuff that probably won't continue in the first place. :-)07:38
ikoniadoritey: you've done it in other channels, so how about just say "ok"07:38
r3b00tis that like modprobe?07:39
r3b00tlol07:39
betanickr3b00t: nope07:39
betanickr3b00t: like b4307:39
doriteyOther channels have nothing to do with #ubuntu. Give it a rest man. I understand your sentiment and all but it's annoying that a guy can't even say hi without getting IRC REPRIMANDED.07:39
DebiansArmydoritey: watch out I got ripped by this one early in the day... This one is trying to set a record how many people they can help in an hour.... lol07:39
betanickr3b00t: you install b43?07:40
r3b00tokay so on XP it wont even list any networks around me07:40
gaurav_nattyi am an eclipse file in my drive i want 2 make it exectuble how i make them07:41
ikoniadoritey: that is not a greeting, just to make it clear, please don't do it in this channel,07:41
doriteyJust to be clear, leave me alone and don't ever complain about something ever again unless it's clear that it's meant to detract from the purpose of this channel instead of lashing out at one-liners that may or may not continue.07:41
doriteyYou're ridiculous.07:41
doriteyGo away.07:41
betanickr3b00t: what about a shutdown wait 10 secs and power up?07:42

dohomiIs there some () or {} for wrapping for a deleting bash script, I have over 1500 rows and want to delete each file, dont want to copy "rm " in front of each row.07:52
stefan_cjs, in Germany this is not illegal07:52
betanickstefan_: maybe it's a problem with the ssid07:54
stefan_cjs, in Germany one has to pay only for traffic, that costs the victim money, but this irrelevant, as everyone has a flatrate and the sums would be cents07:54

LjLmakara: the spontaneous reboots are hardware, but i'm not trying to address those, i'm merely trying to fix the filesystem now08:30
betanickdon-i: port 21? try another port08:30

tensorpuddingPolysics: which notifications are you talking about?08:31
don-iim wondering if...08:31
Polysicstensorpudding, i basically do not have a systray08:31
don-iare you familar with wds ?08:32
makaraLjL - beyond me I'm afraid. Ubuntu checks filesystem occasionally when it loads. What happens when you turn on?08:32
don-iim not..i just learned about it today..lol...08:32
Polysicsno skype or empathy icons, no guake button, nothing08:32
Polysicsjust a network, volume and mail (which i do not even use) icon08:32
LjL-Webchatmakara: says something like "serious errors have been found, ignore, don't mount or fix manually?"08:32
betanickdon-i: wds for wifi?08:32
tensorpuddingPolysics: the old notification area is still there, it's just configured to hide most of the icons because the indicator area makes them superfluous08:32
tensorpuddingPolysics: it can be configured08:33
don-ibetanick, ya, i needed wifi in an area of my house, and i couldnt run a cable, so i bought 2 routers today and loaded dd-wrt and used them to create a wds..a bridge08:33
Polysicstensorpudding, i would leave it to the users to decide what is superflous imho08:33
makaraboot from cd and run the gui diskutility, choose 'check filesystem' for your drive. maybe it will have more options08:33
makaraLjL08:33
tensorpuddingPolysics: that's never been the way that such things are done08:34
don-ibetanick, it took some time to get it setup, but my desktops are hardwired into a router, that communicates wirelessly with another router connected to a modem. its an ugly setup but it works08:34
Polysicsthis would surely be a cause of problems with a new user. they put in a lot of work on unity, then someone starts skype and the icon isn't there08:34
LjL-Webchatmakara: ok i will try08:34
Polysicsi just found out how t oshow them, btw08:34
tensorpuddingPolysics: install dconf-editor, and follow this guide: http://ubuntugenius.wordpress.com/2011/06/25/ubuntu-11-04-fix-show-all-iconsindicators-in-unity-panels-notification-area/08:34
Polysicsi found the same URL :-D08:34
don-ibetanick, the router im connected too right now, is the station, and dhcp is set to repeat. When i port forward, i port forwarded from the router that acts as a wds ap08:35
don-ibetanick, im wondering if i need to port forward both routers, or if i port forwarded the wrong one ?08:35
tensorpuddingi thought skype was one of the ones in the whitelist; skype not having an icon there would be a bug08:36
betanickdon-i: you need to forward the port on all08:36
don-ibetanick, lets go give that  a try08:36
ravenXorg causes very high cpu load - how to find out why?08:37
th0rraven: what does top show?08:38
raventh0r, 99%08:38
th0rraven: top shows X running that high or is that the total? Are you using a proprietary video driver?08:39
don-ibetanick, ive set both to fwd 21, but same thing08:39
don-ibetanick, just for laughs, i also removed them, and tried again, and it refused the connection immediately08:39

raventh0r, X is running 99% load until i "reset" it with kill and relogin08:39
seliteCan you please tell me where can I find open source projects to work on?08:40
th0rraven: when you kill X and log back in, does it settle down?08:40
raventh0r, yes then it is "normal"08:40
th0rraven: are you running unity? If so, have you tried switchng to gnome to see if that solves the problem?08:41
raventh0r, i am running 10.04 lts. perhaps this problem is since i installed xbmc and mythtv. its near that time08:42

betanickdon-i: can i nmap you?08:43
th0rraven: I would try disabling or uninstalling them. If X works after logging back in, then something is hanging on bootup so it is probably a 'service'08:44
don-ibetanick, ya go for it08:44
betanickdon-i: nmap sees it08:44

tripelbI've been asking the same question for 3 or four days. (I'm not happy about not getting anyone to help me. :( ) but I changed up where it was plugged in and I made progress. I took it out of the hub and directly into the computer and the error message changed. It added one about the USB hub being overloaded and to plug it into a high speed hub. I had identified in the past that the front USB port was the 2.0 and all the rest were 1.1 s08:47
tripelbo I put it in the front. --> now it works. SOLVED.08:47
Tommykill: i hope you're not talkin about me >.<08:48
th0rraven: it would have to be something tied closely to video. You mention mythtv...I never tried it, but it would be a good suspect08:48

ColKurtz_^08:54
ColKurtz_i was gonna say08:54
ikoniaPure: it's not really a good usable solution though08:54
PureBut I can't run things from an external hard drive?08:54
ColKurtz_put into a pendrive with plenty of extra space and apt-get something08:54
ColKurtz_why?08:54
ashickur-noor@Pure Ya u Will08:54
ashickur-noorBut you can save the those downloaded packages08:54

Fartificialservice mysql status still gives a process id (even though it changes, so I cant exactly kill it). Process is called post-start process xxxx09:14
makaraubuntu problem?09:14
FartificialDid I reset root password? No.09:14
ikoniaFartificial: 1.) mysql server needs to be running 2.) there needs to be a socket file in place and have the correct permssions 3.) the mysql password (not system password) needs to be set so you can connec tto it09:14
FartificialWhenever I install mysql server I get the same error09:15

ga_sk8ernow i know its dev/fd010:51
herkupusga_sk8er: floppy drives cannot report disc insertion (hardware limitation). you have to mount it to see if a disc is inserted or not.10:52
steph_I just went through the setup, rebooted and now I have 'grub_xputs' not found10:52
steph_what do I do now?10:52
msseverga_sk8er: no, it's not dev/fd0. It's /dev/fd010:52
steph_its a minimal cd...10:52
ga_sk8ersudo mount -t auto /dev/fd0 /mnt10:52
NEWyhello, does anyone knows how to fix the following error with ubuntu and kvm: vnet0: received packet with own address as source address ?10:52
ga_sk8erthats 4th time ive ran that command with a disk in the drive10:52
steph_hope someone can help me10:53
ga_sk8erit still dont find it10:53
NEWyifconfigs says that the vnet0 and vnet1 has different macs10:53
msseverga_sk8er: what happens when you run the command with the disk in the drive10:53
steph_my computer won't boot10:53
auronandacega_sk8er: have you looked under /mnt? does it show you whats on your floppy?10:53
ga_sk8erthe floppy drive lights up for a second or 2 like its working but terminal does nothing10:54
msseverga_sk8er: if there's no error message, then it worked10:54
padi999I have xubuntu on /dev/sda1 (bootable) and want it as an exact copy on sdb1 (another ssd drive). Is dd the safest option here? Since it's not just data but an OS that gets "mirrored"10:54
msseverga_sk8er: look at /mnt and you'll see your floppy's contents10:54
ga_sk8erhow do i look at /mnt?10:54
herkupusls /mnt10:55
wildbatsteph_, try reinstall !grub10:55
msseverpadi999: sudo dd if=/dev/sda1 of=/dev/sdb110:55
steph_wildbat: how?10:55
padi999mssever: I know how to invoke dd, the question was different :) but thanks10:55

ubottusteph_: 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)10:55
msseverpadi999:  Sorry, I didn't read your question thoroughly10:55
ga_sk8eri put that in terminal & i get nothing10:55
padi999mssever: I know ^^ it's ok10:56
steph_so I've got the minimal CD10:56
msseverpadi999: I've used dd successfuly for this exact thing several times10:56
steph_what do I do?10:56
auronandacega_sk8er: is there anything on the floppy?10:56
padi999mssever: perfect, then I'll do it too.10:56
ga_sk8erhow do i read whats on the floppy?10:56
ga_sk8eri know this floppy has files on it cause it has my mobo bios upgrade i did a while back10:56
msseverga_sk8er: type mount by itself and make sure your floppy shows up in the list10:57
auronandacega_sk8er: if nothing is on the floppy and you've looked at its mountpoint then you are not going to find anything (because nothing is there)10:57
padi999ga_sk8er: floppies are odd. cat /proc/scsi/scsi shows the floppy but the OS does not automount it. Normally manual mounting works however without problems10:57
ga_sk8eri still got that its not a valid block10:58
steph_what is rescue mode on the minimal Cd?10:58
padi999ga_sk8er: instead of /dev/sdc (or however it is called) try finding the primary partition on it /dev/sdc4 usually10:58
wildbatsteph_ Mini; CD do have a shell for you :>  just boot it, drop to shell , mount your drive and install grub10:58
msseverga_sk8er: But you said earlier that the mount command worked without error message. Which is it? How can we help you if you give conflicting information?10:58
wildbatsteph_, try it you will see :>10:59
padi999(that's how it was when I "digitalized" all old floppies, however :)10:59
steph_wildbat: I was following instructions from a website to install LXDE, I really don't know much about this stuff10:59
ga_sk8eri guess i didnt have disc in all the way. now its going10:59
ga_sk8erbut not showing floppy10:59
msseverpadi999: Ah, someone who knows something about floppies! Thanks10:59
msseverga_sk8er: What does "going, but not showing floppy" mean?11:00
wildbatsteph_: then URL have about 4 method of doing it from a CD.11:00
steph_wildbat: I don't know how to get to shell from LiveCd11:00
ga_sk8erit only shows my hard drive11:00
steph_well I wanted to try minimal11:00
msseverga_sk8er: what only shows your hard drive?11:00
ga_sk8eri meant the command is going now but not showing the floppy11:00
steph_but now I can't get passed grub11:00
ga_sk8ermount11:01
* steph_ blush11:01
msseverga_sk8er: The command can't be "going."11:01
wildbatsteph_, boot the CD rescue mode11:01
msseverga_sk8er: please be specific11:01
ga_sk8eri did that command like u asked & only drive it shows is hard drive...no floppy listed11:01
ga_sk8ermount11:01
padi999mssever: haha, yeah, it's so refreshing finding the old OLD games on the discs (and then trying them with dosbox) ^^  I had IOMEGA ZIPS for which you need the parallel port (module ppa). Most computers nowadays don't even have it ^^11:01
herkupusga_sk8er: grep -w fd0 /proc/mounts11:01
wildbatsteph_, it give you root shell11:01
msseverpadi999: I remember the horors of working with Zip disks back in the day11:02
ga_sk8ernot doing anything11:02
padi999mssever: sure. Still a horror: Let them drop 20cm and they are gone ^^11:02
msseverga_sk8er: Try this command: sudo mount /dev/fd0 /mnt || echo "failed"11:03
padi999the most amazing thing are the disk/filesizes from back then ^^11:03
ga_sk8ersudo mount /dev/fd0 .mnt || echo "failed"11:04
ga_sk8ermount: mount point .mnt does not exist11:04
ga_sk8erfailed11:04
msseverga_sk8er: You made a typo11:04
ikoniaga_sk8er: READ what people are giving you11:04
steph_wildbat: a) how do I get root shell, b) how do I reinstall grub from there?11:04

ga_sk8eri typed it just liek u did11:08
aguitelikonia, to transfers files11:08
ga_sk8eri copied & pasted that time11:08

ga_sk8erterminal didnt tell any results11:08

ikoniaaguitel: you're using Linux11:09
aguitelikonia, i have win+linux11:10

revilodrawhey y'all, i've used ubuntu since 2006 and am currently using the newest distro with all updates installed and no proprietary drivers on my toshiba laptop. of the 5 or 6 laptops i have installed ubuntu on, none have ever worked flawlessly with suspend/hibernate. is there a reason for this? they have always gone down for suspend or hibernate properly, but sometimes don't wake up, which is annoying. should i just get over it11:10
msseverga_sk8er: how about "mount"?11:11
anihi,I was trying to get a certificate by doing this command..11:11
aguitelmssever, my question is :is ipad2 have usb port ?11:11
ani"keytool -genkey -keyalg rsa -alias myKeyName"11:11
ikoniarevilodraw: suspend has a lot of issues, mostly to do with video card properitary drivers11:11
ikoniaaguitel: not on linux, no11:11
ga_sk8erstill only lists hard drive11:11
msseveraguitel: Dunno. I was just explaining what ikonia was telling you11:11
ga_sk8eri may just have to buy usb external floppy drive11:11
revilodrawikonia: thank you, but i'm not using any proprietary drivers :s11:12
aniand for this ask for password of keystore11:12
ikoniarevilodraw: the open ones can cause the same issues, especially ati11:12
aniI need to know the password of keystore11:12
SubNormalikonia: did you see my PM?11:12
revilodrawikonia: lol damn, ok11:12
msseverga_sk8er: I don't think you're telling me everything. If the mount command succeded, you'd see in in "mount." If it failed, you would have seen "failed." There are no other possibilities.11:12
ikoniaSubNormal: noipe11:12
anican anybody help me?11:13
SubNormalikonia: or cant you recive PM's?11:13
ikoniaSubNormal: just didn't get it, post it in the channel11:13
msseverani: If you don't know the password, ask the person who set the password.11:14
SubNormalikonia: ok np's11:14
aniit's default with ubuntu11:14
SubNormalikonia: this is my setup http://i54.tinypic.com/vskt4y.jpg11:14
aniI have checked Synaptic package manager11:14
msseverani: have you tried your regular user password?11:14
ga_sk8eri see it when i go into "computer" but it dont show up in the mount...i dont understand this at all11:14
aniJKS keystore was already there11:15
aniin system11:15
ikoniaSubNormal: that's fine, it doesn't change what I said11:15
aniyes,I have tried11:15
SubNormalikonia: that it's a bad setup?11:15
dddbmtI've just installed Ubuntu 11.04 and did "apt-get install chromium-browser". But no matter what I do I can't get Chromium to be my default browser.11:15
aniand also tried with keystore default password that is "changeit"11:15
anibut get no result11:16
dddbmtI've tried in the settings for chrome, and tried the "Do you want to make chromium default" alert that pops up.11:16
aguitelikonia, mssever ,i need some advice, what is best to buy ,ipod 2 or Samsung - Galaxy Tab 10.1 ?11:16
ikoniaSubNormal: no, but you said you where sending traffic through 111.1 between 111.199 and 111.19811:16
ikoniaaguitel: that's not what this channel is for11:16
ikoniaaguitel: this channel is for ubuntu support11:16
msseverga_sk8er: If mounting succeeded, then you'll find the files in /mnt, If there are no files there, it's because the disk is blank. If mmounting didn't succeed, then you would've gotten the message "failed."11:16
glebihandddbmt, try using "gnome-default-applications-properties"11:16

mavI am new here and in ubuntu. I need to know can I boot Ubuntu 11.04 from usb 3.0 hard drive?11:18
ga_sk8ermsserver when it pops up "unable to mount location" it says below that "no media in the drive"11:18
ga_sk8erbut i have a disc in so i know theres media in the drive11:19
msseverga_sk8er: We're working from the command line. Remember? Switching interfaces all the time is only confusing11:19
glebihanga_sk8er, did you try with different disks ?11:19
auronandacega_sk8er: you don't seem to want to listen to what people have already explained to you several times11:19
ga_sk8eryes i have 2 different discs here11:19
devishhi,i have few questions regarding ubuntu11:19
NEWyhello, does anyone knows how to fix the following error with ubuntu and kvm: vnet0: received packet with own address as source address ?11:20
SubNormalikonia: when I looked at the picture, I noticed that 111.198 does not go trough 111.1 to get to 111.199 it goes trough the switch, my bad11:20
devishfirst, what is the latest eclipse package it has in the repo11:20
ga_sk8erim doing everything im getting told to do11:20
ikoniaSubNormal: thats fine, then you should ahve no problem accessing the webmin service11:20
mavI am new here and in ubuntu. I need to know can I boot Ubuntu 11.04 from usb 3.0 hard drive?11:20
ikoniaSubNormal: if you can't access it there is a problem witht he service11:20
SubNormalikonia: but i'm still not able to connect to my webmin11:21
msseverdevish: You can search synaptic and find that info11:21
glebihandevish,11:21
glebihandevish, 3.5.2-811:21
ikoniaSubNormal: then there is a problem with the webmin service setup11:21
msseverga_sk8er: Actually, you aren't. I've had to repeat things many times, and correct many things11:21
dr-willismav you should be able to.11:22
msseverga_sk8er: And now the info you've given can't possibly be all correct, so you must be leaving something out11:22
SubNormalikonia: my ubuntu machine network went bad yesterday after I connected a cable from it to another pc to check if ubuntu was sharing its connection.11:22
dddbmtglebihan, how do I do that?11:22
ga_sk8ersorry im not too good at the terminal commands. thats why i dont care too much for linux. half the stuff u do in linux is a terminal command11:22
ikoniaSubNormal: then review the networking setup on the ubuntu machine11:23
SubNormalikonia: almost instantly as I connected the network cable the ubuntu internet stoped working11:23
devishsecondly , i have dell bluetooth headset ,is it supported in ubuntu out of box, with services like audio chat etc.11:23
mssevermssever: Anyway, I have to go to class now, so I've gotta run.11:23
glebihandddbmt, launch that command from terminal11:23
auronandacega_sk8er: it might help if you highlight who you are talking to11:23
auronandace!who | ga_sk8er11:23
ubottuga_sk8er: 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 :)11:23
mavdr-willis: I tried  but I have problems. Some times when I restart my laptop it just accidentaly shut down.11:23
ga_sk8erive tried 2 differnts discs & it wont read either of them. bios reads the drive. the drive shows up in computer. but when i type in "mount" it only lists my hard drive11:23
herkupusga_sk8er: does  ls /sys/block  show fd0?11:24
dr-willismav no idea on that. try the hd in a usb2 port perhaps.11:24
dddbmtglebihan, it worked perfectly - thank you for your time! :)11:24
SubNormalikonia: is there any chance that you could guide me trough this?11:24
glebihandddbmt, you're welcome11:24
padi999in /etc/fstab I have a device (ntfs) which should be mounted automatically IF it is connected. I have the "nofail" tag invoked BUT when the device is unplugged it still stops the boot-process. This is bad because I can only connect via ssh (no monitor) but the sshd is only started after that...11:24
ga_sk8erherkupus yes it does11:25
ga_sk8erthats a new command nobody else has told me11:25
MuNk`i got a odd bug , all the indicator icons in the top menu bar keep moving on there own to the right further and further off my screen...11:25

padi999/dev/disk/by-id/scsi-SATA_SAMSUNG_HD203DJKWDRJ1LZ204776-part1   /media/ntfs_hdd        ntfs    noatime,defaults,uid=1009,gid=1004,rw,nofail    0       011:25
herkupusga_sk8er: just wanted to make sure the kernel really knows the fd0 block device11:25
mavdr-willis: Okay thanks :) But do you maybe know can mount '/' and 'boot' partition on internal hard drive and other ubuntu partitions on external hard drive?11:25
padi999this is the invocation. It works for the mounting but nofail has no effect11:25
devish i have dell bluetooth headset ,is it supported in ubuntu out of box, with services like audio chat etc.11:26
dr-willispadi999:  its possble that nofail option is not correct. ive never noticed such an option befor.11:26
herkupusga_sk8er: are both floppy discs bios updates?11:26
padi999dr-willis: I might invoke the mount command as an init script rather than having it in fstab. Then at least sshd starts earlier. But that's kind of a hack ^^11:27
dr-willismav you can put /home or whatever on external hds.. yes...11:27
ga_sk8erno. the other i got from my mom. i think its just some old clipart pics she has11:27
glebihanpadi999, I think the nofail option is only used by fsck11:27
dr-willispadi999:  use /etc/rc.local ;)11:27
padi999glebihan: I see. So there is no way to say: "mount only if hdd is plugged"? :)11:27
padi999dr-willis: yeah ^^11:28
ga_sk8erherkupus 1 is my bios update & the other disk i  got from my mom. i think its some old clipart of hers11:29
glebihanpadi999, check the "nobootwait" option11:29
herkupusga_sk8er: can you try to make an image file of the floppy: sudo dd if=/dev/fd0 of=/tmp/floppy.img11:29
glebihanpadi999, never used it but it looks like it could be the correct one11:30

ikoniaHyperbyte: worth checking the man page on it before using it11:33

aniwhere will I get valid KeyStore key entry containing a private key and corresponding public key certificate chain in my system?11:34
Hyperbyteikonia, I don't see it on the manpage.  In fact, the manpage suggests it can't be done.  It states the tool is only for updating the services, doesn't say anything about listening them.11:34
wildbatsteph_ why are you using miniCD thou while you umfamiliar with ubuntu .11:35
ikoniaHyperbyte: all services run at run level 2 now, ubuntu only uses run level 211:35
glebihanikonia, is update-rc.d still in use with upstart ?11:35
ikoniaglebihan: I believe so11:36
Hyperbyteikonia, okay.. so how can I get a list of all enabled/disabled services?11:36
BluesKajhey folks11:36
ikoniaHyperbyte: I've not read it11:37
mavdr-willis: Sorry if I ask too much but I just want to be sure. I have internal hd with 2 partitions. One is recovery and other one is boot partition for XP. Now  I bought Transcend 750GB external hd.  so, can i split by GParted XP boot partition so and new one partition on internal hd use to mount '/' and '/boot' partiton and on Transcend hd mount other partitions(swaparea, /usr, /var, /temp, /home) without messing with RAID and LVM?11:37
glebihanikonia, the man page only mentions System V scripts11:37
ikoniaglebihan: really, could be wrong11:37
ikoniaglebihan: as in I could be wrong11:37
ga_sk8erherkupus idk then11:37
steph_wildbat: familiar yes. expert no.11:38
glebihanHyperbyte, try "service --status-all"11:38
auronandacega_sk8er: you need to mount the disk before you dd an image from it11:39
Hyperbyteglebihan, awesome!  And then I can use update-rc.d to enable/disable, or should I use another tool for that?11:39
steph_wildbat: it shouldn't matter, an absolute novice should be able to load the minicd and get it to boot!!!11:39
dr-willismav you can put / and /boot inernal  and mount / home to external.  i dint see the need for a dizen partions fir the otger plaves.11:39
glebihanHyperbyte, I don't think update-rc.d can be used with upstart, but I'm not sure11:39
ga_sk8eri just tried fdrawcmd & i get " open floppy: permission denied"11:39
Hyperbyteglebihan, which program should I use for managing upstart jobs?11:39
wildbatsteph_ , may be :)11:39
glebihanHyperbyte, from what I've learned so far, I don't think there is any tool for it yet, you have to edit the scripts in /etc/init/ manually11:41
HyperbyteHmm, okay11:41
steph_wildbat: my conclusion is that the MiniCD X64 is broken11:41
mavdr-willis: I just read it on ubuntu site like sugestion, i still learning :)))11:41
wildbatsteph_,  i doubted it11:41
steph_well, I have followed the install to default...  I have simply pressed enter... and it will not boot11:43

usr13_I have 10.04 and most everything works nicely but something amiss with recordmydesktop and it may not be a problem with recordmydesktop itself, but here's what it does.  When I make a video and then play it, the video is way ahead of the audio.  The video runs 3 or 4 times faster, audio is normal but video is way fast.  Video finishes and playback ends and the audio is cut off in mid-sentence only 1/3 or 1/4th of the way through.  Any ideas?11:58

damo22ga_sk8er: it is an installer for the floppy13:05
=== vastu is now known as pgulley
ga_sk8erits not for the floppy13:05
damo22ga_sk8er: it creates the floppy with the files you need for the sata drivers13:06
damo22ga_sk8er: but it runs on windows13:06
ga_sk8erits a raid driver for the hard drive. it has to go to the floppy. i load windows from the cd. press a button to load a raid installer then i have to have a floppy in with the raid on it which is why i need to get my floppy working so i can put the file to it13:06
damo22ga_sk8er: I know, but its not the file you need to put on the floppy, you have to INSTALL that exe first to a floppy13:07
tXtne13:07
damo22ga_sk8er: believe me i have done this many times13:08
ga_sk8erbut if i dont got a working floppy i cant do that....see what my problem is?13:08

ga_sk8erCannot initialize 'A:'13:09

JoeR1alexleon_, When I did it I didn't need any extra  drivers but I had to work with configuring option in alsamixer I think13:11

MuNk`Is it possible to add/remove cron jobs one at a time instead of having to remove jobs nad reload all jobs each time you want to change one?13:30
bazhangBry8Star, it works great here13:30
TheEvilPhoenixMuNk`:  yeah, by erasing the cron jobs  one-by-one.13:30
TheEvilPhoenixi think13:30
bahaxI have an ssh connection to a laptop how can I copy files to my laptop?13:31
Bry8Star... thanks13:31
icerootbahax: scp13:31
BluesKajBBL13:31
icerootbahax: scp localfile user@laptop:/path/to/store/13:31
ga_sk8erits 9:30 so i think i might finally log off here lol13:32
PiciMuNk`: How are you adding/removing cron jobs now? It shouldn't be that much of a problem to add a new job.13:32
osmosis_paulHi, one question, this is the correct way to connect to a remote terminal and use remote GUI's right? ssh -X user@domain.com ???13:32
DuolosI'm having a problem with Eclipse (#eclipse is barren) in ubuntu. For some reason, it seems to be missing fonts and displaying empty boxes in place of characters in most of my code. Any ideas?13:32
ga_sk8erTHANKS A BILLION damo2213:32
osmosis_paulwith i connect to one of my cluster amazon machine that is ubuntu works fine13:32
damo22np13:32
osmosis_paulbut in another cluster server nope13:32
MuNk`pici, at the moment im basically clearling all jobs with -r and reloading in the changed file full of jobs13:33
bahaxiceroot, this would copy from my laptop to the distant, right? I want the revers operation13:33
icerootbahax: that will copy from your local machine to your laptop13:33
PiciMuNk`: Why not use crontab -e ?13:33
icerootbahax: scp source target13:33
MuNk`because im using a script. kinda automation13:33
icerootDuolos: using eclipse from the repos? or from the website?13:34
bahaxiceroot, I'm inside a distant laptop using ssh in cli, I want to move a file from there to my machine (copy from distant to local using ssh)13:35
Duolosiceroot: The latest version from the website.  I suppose I could try the older, repoed version.13:35
PiciMuNk`: Well, if you don't mind running the script with root, you could put/remove files from /etc/cron.d/13:36
jackbahax: man scp13:36
bahaxjack, you've got a point of view :)13:36
jackfor sure13:36
MuNk`hmm13:36
kyle_Can i set a time for my ubuntu 11.04 to shutdown13:36
escottosmosis_paul, thats not using the remote gui, its using yours and just tunneling the drawing requests back, but it is "correct"13:37
beliMuNk`: copy/remove  a file for each job into the special folders daily, weekly or whatever you want it to be executed13:38
escottosmosis_paul, does it not work for things like "xclock" and does it give an error messages13:38
jackscp is what you want, promised13:38
icerootDuolos: #eclipse, that version is not supported here13:39
belikyle_:  man at13:39
osmosis_paulescott, actually yesterday when i try in my ubuntu machine of Amazon xclock i saw it in my computer13:39
jackescott, does you can speak proper english?13:39
icerootbahax: scp file-on-the-machine-you-are-calling-scp user@remote-system:/path/to/copy/13:40
Duolosiceroot: yeah, I know it's not supported and #eclipse is barren.  Just thought I'd ask...assumed there'd be someone here using the new version.13:40
osmosis_paulescott, i think the problem is that i need to install some library x11, any idea?13:40
kyle_beli: like this http://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/natty/man8/shutdown.8.html13:40
kyle_beli: sudo shutdown -h 18:45 "Server is going down for maintenance"13:40
belikyle_: ok you can specify a shutdown message and when it will go down and how often it will be repeated as a warning13:41
kyle_beli: but shutdown doesn't exist and is not on apt-get13:41
Bry8Starplease also need a torrent of Ubuntu 11.04 i386 DVD disc Intel-AMD x8613:41
bahaxiceroot, the problem is I want to do the following: scp file-on-the-machine-you-are-calling-scp user@localsystem:/path/to/copy/13:41
bahaxiceroot, I want the file from the distant laptop to my laptop :(13:41
escottosmosis_paul, the machine you are sitting at must have an x server running on it. it "serves" screen space to the remote client (which is your ec2 cluster)13:41
escottosmosis_paul, so if you are running windows install mingx or some other windows xserver13:42
froeshi guys... i have been trying to install VLC with no luck. any ideas what can it be?   http://pastebin.com/hgeiA0Zr13:42
froesoutput of apt-cache policy    http://pastebin.com/VCAGy61M13:42
osmosis_paulescott, is ubuntu, do you know the name of that package???13:42
escottosmosis_paul, for *nix if you are in a gui you are running x13:43
belikyle_: sudo apt-get install apt-file13:43
d_atharva_Hi...Where can I download Vm Ware ?13:43
belikyle_: apt-file search shutdown13:43
damo22bahax: you need the external ip address of your "local" machine and port forward from your router to your "local" machine, then scp from the remote machine back to your "local" ?13:43
osmosis_paulescott, is a remote machine without gui]\13:43
escottd_atharva_, the vmware website13:43
bazhangd_atharva_, their website13:43
Bry8StarHi , please also need a link of torrent file for downloading official Ubuntu 11.04 i386 DVD disc Intel-AMD x8613:43
ikoniaBry8Star: on ubuntu.com13:43
osmosis_paulescott, do you know the name of the package to install13:43
xanguaBry8Star: ubuntu.com13:43
d_atharva_<bazhang>  : Can you please send me the link as I am unable to get it..13:44
bazhangd_atharva_, vmware.com13:44
icerootbahax: i dont see the problem13:44
icerootbahax: i told you what to do13:44
escottosmosis_paul, the point is client server get reversed pc --commands to ssh server--> ec2 --drawing commands to X server--> pc13:44
damo22iceroot: i think he wants to make incoming connection to his home pc from external13:45
escottosmosis_paul, so the local machine must be *nix running a gui, or windows + xming or apple + xwindows13:45
osmosis_paulescott, i know how works but i need install the X server in the remote machine13:45
kyle_beli: doing now13:45
escottosmosis_paul, you shouldn't the presense of the xclock binary should be sufficient13:45
osmosis_paulescott, local machine has gui of course13:45
kyle_beli: The cache directory is empty. You need to run 'apt-file update' first. << Have done..13:47
Picikyle_: What release of Ubuntu are you running?13:47
kyle_pici: 11.0413:48
Bry8Stari'm not able to find a torrent in the ubuntu.com , of a 11.04 server dvd i386 x86 intel-amd ... can some1 give me a link please .. .thnaks13:48
osmosis_paulescott, then to can use remote GUI i need that my remote machine has a GUI installed?13:49
Picikyle_: Then you should already have the shutdown command. It is part of upstart which is installed by default.13:49
osmosis_paulescott, because one of the ubuntu machine in my Amazon cluster i dont think that has GUI installed and transmit the xclock interface to my local machine13:49
escottosmosis_paul, no, no, no. and i dont think you are understanding how this works13:50
kyle_pici: i have done this now and it seems to be there. I'm sure that wasn't a moment ago13:50
kyle_pici: i'm losing it.13:50
osmosis_paulescott, no what? could you be in what i'm wrong please?13:51
Picikyle_: heh, we all have those days ;)13:51
osmosis_paulescott, be a little more specific yi mean :-)13:51
kyle_pic: If you set a time how do you check it's status?13:51
escottosmosis_paul, to avoid remote/local client/server confusion. im going to call them "pc" and "ec2" you are sitting in front of "pc" and ssh -X username@ec2. you need to have a gui running on "pc" you do not need any kind of gui on "ec2"13:52
kyle_pici: If you set a time how do you check it's status?13:52
damo22kyle: "date" ?13:52
osmosis_paulescott, ok got it, already have that conf, continue please13:52
Picikyle_: Thats a good question.13:52
escottosmosis_paul, if /usr/bin/xclock exists on ec2 then you can run /usr/bin/xclock and it should appear on the display of "pc"13:53
Bry8Starcan someone please give me a link ... i'm not able to find a torrent file from the ubuntu.com website , i'm looking for this 11.04 server DVD disc i386 x86 intel-amd iso torrent ... can some1 give me a link please .. .thanks  ... found other torrents though (server CD , livecd/desktop CD, etc)13:53
kyle_pici: really or are you just playing wih me.?13:53
Picikyle_: Really, I don't know the answer and it is a good question.13:53

osmosis_paulescott, with ec2 happend, show me the xclock in my "pc" but with the other machine in the other cluster "tilaa" that is ubuntu as well, tell me "Error: Can't open display: "13:54
PiciBry8Star: iirc there is no server DVD though.13:54
kyle_s13:54
Bry8Stari also think there is no torrent for the server DVD disc13:55
escottosmosis_paul, ok sounds like $DISPLAY is not set. in your ssh username@ec2 window type "echo $DISPLAY" it should say ":10"13:55
kyle_damo22: using shutdown to scedule a shutdown13:55
Bry8Starso i will have to use IDM or FDM to download the ISO image , i guess ?13:55
kyle_How do you check it's running etc..13:55
osmosis_paulescott, yes in ec2 give me this "localhost:10.013:56
osmosis_paul" and in the tilaa machine empty13:56
escottosmosis_paul, "grep X11 /etc/ssh/sshd_config" on the ec2 machine13:57
escottosmosis_paul, an empty $DISPLAY on tilaa is wrong wrong wrong. are you running a gui on tilaa13:58
osmosis_pauli already check sshd_config the parameter looks acept x1113:58
osmosis_paulescott, i dont think so, is a cluster machine should only has terminal13:58
escottosmosis_paul, you need to be running a gui on the machine you are sitting in front of.13:59
osmosis_paulyes13:59
osmosis_paulescott, i understand that, tilaa is not my pc is another cluster server13:59
osmosis_paulescott, when i said cluster server i mean external server14:00
osmosis_paulescott, without any kind of gui14:00
osmosis_paulescott, ec2 give me this14:00
escottosmosis_paul, are you bouncing through multiple ssh sessions to get to ec2? (pc --> tilaa -> ec2)14:00
osmosis_paul<escott> osmosis_paul, you need to be running a gui on the machine you are sitting in fr14:00
osmosis_paulescott, ec2 is just an example that machine that works14:01
osmosis_paulescott, i need make it work in tilaa now14:01
escottosmosis_paul, you can't ssh -X from a console only system and expect it to work. there is nowhere to draw the picture on tilaa14:01
osmosis_paulescott, PC->Tilaa, pc always has gui14:02
escottosmosis_paul, whatever machine is physically connected to the display must be running Xorg14:02

axisysok now that I installed linux disk encryption in ubuntu .. how would someone verify it remotely.. my IT needs to verify it for audit purpose.. I could record the login as one option.. is there any other way?14:28
m_fulderah will remember that to14:28
escottaxisys, what kind of disk encryption14:28
Cat-Meowcire_, are you having the issue in just Xubuntu, or is it the same with Ubuntu, Kubuntu, or other desktop environments?14:28
axisysescott: the default with LVM .. used the option from alternate cd during install14:29

compdocCat-Meow, that site opens fine for me14:31
axisysescott: I picked the use entire disk and setup encrypted lvm14:31
compdocyou think you have some add-on or setting that might stop it?14:31
Cat-MeowI tired it in firefox, opera, and chrome14:32
compdocyou have a firewall on the lan thats preventing opening https sites?14:32
Cat-Meowdon't think so, I can get to those sites in windows and on android devices14:33
compdoccan other computers on the lan open the site?14:33
Cat-Meowyes14:33
ikoniaCat-Meow: that url works fine for me14:33
escottaxisys, im not sure what one would look at to verify dm-crypt. but i imagine it shows up in `mount` if it were me I would install virtual box, and then install ubuntu on that and use disk encryption and then forward the ssh into the vm system, and laugh when they fail to realize the real system isnt encrypted14:33
compdocdo you use iptables on that machine?14:33

dualcoreDoes this mean I was downloading it from myself? and does that mean my computer could be hosting torrents without my knowledge?14:34
somsiparshinator: no - you have to install flash-plugin or similar14:35
arshinatorhow to do it?14:35
axisysescott: mount does not show it.. during boot it asks encrypted passphrase14:35
arshinatorcan u pls guide me somsip14:35
Cat-MeowI think it has to be an issue with 11.04...every other thing I use works14:35
axisysescott: and then the login prompt for my password14:35
arshinatorsomsip:cn u pls guide me hw to d that14:36
axisysescott: mount shows only if I chose encrypted home dir14:36
arshinatori am new on ubuntu14:36
escottaxisys, "verify remotely" that a system you installed is encrypted.... thats very possibly the stupidest thing i've ever heard. are they going to come over and verify that the password isn't taped to the bottom of the machine?14:36
somsiparshinator: whatversion of ubuntu14:36
arshinatorthe latest14:36
axisysescott: tell me about it..14:36
arshinatori guess 11.0414:36
axisysescott: they rather me run windows with guardiaedge full disk encryption14:36
escottaxisys, you could boot a liveusb and then someone could ssh into the liveusb system and see the disk is encrypted14:37
somsiparshinator: http://www.liberiangeek.net/2011/03/install-adobe-flash-player-ubuntu-11-04-natty-narwhal/14:37

somsiparshinator: not personally tested, but looksa good tutorial14:37
arshinatorsomsip:thanks i guess this would solve the problem14:38
escottaxisys, i hate auditors14:38
axisysescott: stupid question.. but anyway they can tell that they log'd in into the live cd env?14:38
somsiparshinator: cool14:39
axisysescott: yep14:39
Cat-MeowI guess my issue is unfixable14:39

Cat-Meow??? axisys?14:41
escottaxisys, but seriously there are things you could tell the auditor to look for, but hes not going to understand it. people who know what they are doing leave auditing because its so pointless. so just tell him its the install disk and this is the drive and you can see it cant be opened14:41
herrgabrielwhen I click on links in evolution or empathy, the content of the link is being loaded into Geany instead of being opened with firefox. halp plox?14:42
axisysescott: yep.. I guess if he can't fig it out.. he should not audit in the first place and find someone who can . before they deny me from running ubuntu on corporate laptop14:43
axisysCat-Meow: being silly... i thought escott's comment was too funny about trained baboon.. specially when picturing one. :-)14:43
escottaxisys, if he starts asking questions just show that `mount` sets root on a loopback on top of a device which is really a usb device14:44
axisysescott: yep.. good point14:45
axisysescott: thanks a lot!14:45

Jacruthhi guys, is there any way to install Windows 7 AFTER installing Ubuntu?15:20
somsip intmed: fails here too. Have you tried the https link if there is one?15:20
escottCat-Meow, !paste us `route`15:21
escott!grub | Jacruth just reinstall grub after15:21
ubottuJacruth just reinstall grub after: 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)15:21

K4kDoes anyone know if .bash_logout runs before or after your session is closed? IE, would the "whoami" command still work for detecting if you have any other sessions still open in other consoles?15:22
axisysyou need to remove one those route15:22
axisysCat-Meow: ^15:22
axisysCat-Meow: can you paste your interfaces config file15:22
Cat-Meowhow can I get to that?15:22
axisysCat-Meow: paste the cat /etc/network/interfaces15:23
escottCat-Meow, i think your /etc/hosts is screwed up. route should resolve names unless you say route -n15:23
=== credencio is now known as credence
Cat-Meowauto lo15:25
Cat-Meowiface lo inet loopback15:25
escottJacruth, can't say what windows will or will not do, but i think you can ask windows to install to a particular partition. but it does insist on blowing away the mbr15:25
axisysescott: i think that was netstat -nr output15:25
escottaxisys, he sent this http://paste.ubuntu.com/669319/15:25
escottaxisys, ok nevermind i see15:26
axisysescott: :-)15:26
axisysCat-Meow: so wlan1 needs to be down15:26
axisysCat-Meow: compdoc asked you  .. if you have two wireless adapters15:26
intmedsomsip: here is the repo http://eagain.net/gitweb/?p=gitosis.git;a=summary15:26
Cat-Meowno, just the one15:26
axisysCat-Meow: so how did you get wlan0 and wlan1 ?15:27
Cat-MeowI have no idea15:27
axisyswlan1 needs to be down for you to go out..15:27
axisysor essentially one of them15:27
Cat-MeowI see on my network thing it lists my ralink device, but I see something else as well15:27
axisysCat-Meow: can you please traceroute to that host and post the output here15:28
Cat-Meowto the site host from earlier?15:28
axisysCat-Meow: also please paste the output of route as escott suggested15:28
axisysCat-Meow: yes15:28
FirefisheI'm using ubuntu/kubuntu 11.04.  I just installed.  I'm using the nvidia-current proprietary driver (or so I thought).  When I bring up the additional drivers dialog, the display says that the driver is activated but not in use.15:28
axisysCat-Meow: s/post the output/paste the output/15:29
compdocsometmes firewire ports are seen as networks, I think.15:29
escottaxisys, it will be the same as netstat -nr just with * and default and link-local and all that jazz15:29
Cat-Meowhold on, apparently traceroute wasn't installed15:29

afsdkj"Firefox is already running, but is not responding. To open a new window, you must first close the existing Firefox process, or restart your system."15:45
escottduckxx, first echo $HTTP_PROXY in a terminal. wget should be respecting that variable. then go into firefox preferences and see if it is using a proxy15:46
axisysescott: no .. they both can be up..15:46
axisysCat-Meow: you sure you are tracepathing from same host?15:46
Cat-Meowyea15:46
afsdkji want to start firefox, i get the message ""Firefox is already running, but is not responding. To open a new window, you must first close the existing Firefox process, or restart your system.", i try "sudo killall firefox" and i get "firefox: no process found"15:46
