Guest12947I tried to... but have to admit I've forgotten most of my IRC skills from a decade ago.00:00
w30Guest12947, #samba irc is a good place00:00
mbrigdanHey, I'm trying to make sshd use a different directory for authorized_keys, but it won't change no matter what I do. Anyone know what could be going on?00:00
Dr_Willis /nick  I_am_Old_Skool_leet :)00:00
Guest12947Thank you w30!00:01
Guest12947Thanks for that Dr_Willis!00:01
=== Guest12947 is now known as sandkeydude
urlin2uansak-onepost, so you want to use grub2 in the install in  sdc2?00:01
ejvi find it hard to believe you could forget /nick :p00:01
quellhorsthow could i upgrade ubuntu 8.04 that is running on some "turnkey linux"?00:01
japanhow to delete folder with permissions00:02
sandkeydudeIt seems I'm becoming gifted at forgetting things I don't use as I get older!   ;)00:02
ejvjapan, sudo ?00:02
japani dont know howwww00:02
Dr_Willisjapan:  clarify a bit more...   sudo rmdir foodir   is one way00:02
ansak-oneposturlin2, 1st I want there to be a grub on sda that still points to sda1 so I can keep working from my CentOS system as I migrate away from it.00:02
ejvjapan: sudo rmdir <directory>00:02
quellhorstwhen i do sudo do-release-upgrade ; i get: https://gist.github.com/3c2dff2e98a31b8224d300:02
=== \l is now known as luigi
* w30 has CRS00:02
ejvjapan: or better yet, `man rmdir`00:02
ansak-oneposturlin2, 2 I want there to be a grub on sdc that points to sdc1 and runs ubuntu00:02
ansak-oneposturlin2, for now... I am open to being told what The Right Way is.00:03
=== luigi is now known as \l
japani tried rm -rf /opt/lampp but it doesnt work00:03
mbrigdanHey, I'm trying to make sshd use a different directory for authorized_keys, but it won't change no matter what I do. Anyone know what could be going on?00:03
ejvjapan: put a sudo in front of it00:03
ansak-oneposturlin2, for now, I still have a bunch of gotta-do-this-now stuff on the CentOS partition that I mean to migrate away from.00:04
japanok tnx very much00:04

wilderAnybody use playonlinux? I'm having trouble with an install00:04
urlin2uansak-onepost, you don't need a boot partition, as the script read grub is in the sdc mbr and points at that sdc1, can the sdc be moved to the first read in the bios.00:04
ejvwilder: does this look like #playonlinux ?00:04
wilderIt does not.00:05
ansak-oneposturlin2u, sdc becoming first: yes, that's what I want to do eventually.00:05
ansak-oneposturlin2u, actually what you're seeing in that pastebin is not the original results.00:05
ejvwhat is playonlinux wildbat ?00:05
ansak-oneposturlin2u, let me paste that one up, too and explain a bit more of what I've seen.00:05
=== david is now known as Guest95438
zykotick9ejv, it's a frontend to wine00:06
japani also installed php 5 mysql etc etc and i wanna delete it but i dont know where is it00:06
ejvdid he leave, found a forums link for him00:06
ansak-oneposturlin2u, pasted at http://paste.ubuntu.com/672018/ (or is it better etiquette to just say "672018"?)00:06
ejvansak-onepost: full link is fine :p00:07
ansak-oneposturlin2u latest paste is how I found things; sda spins up, reads mbr, boots narwhal off of sdc00:07
urlin2uansak-onepost, so this is a accurate as is of it now?00:07
ejvjapan: i'd use the package manager to remove any libraries/software you no longer want00:07
ejvjapan: eg `apt-get remove <package>`00:07
ansak-oneposturlin2u, 2nd pastebin is how it was, 1st pastebin is after i made one change which did not have the desired effect.00:08
urlin2uansak-onepost, we only want a script of what ity reads now, and any changes may need a new script run.00:08
urlin2uansak-onepost, put the sdc in the first read in the bios, the first script shows if possibly booting.00:09
drag0nzzykotick9, thanks dude00:09
drag0nzfor the info00:09
ansak-oneposturlin2u, this: http://paste.ubuntu.com/672007/ is how things are _now_00:09
ansak-oneposturlin2u, If I try to boot off of sdc (BIOS select boot device), I get a blank screen00:10
ApleEh, fuck Sublime :)00:10
ansak-oneposturlin2u, If I allow BIOS to boot off of default first device (sda), it boots narwhal off of sdc00:10
urlin2uansak-onepost, you don't need the boot partition sdc2 will boot as is.00:11
ansak-oneposturlin2u, okay. but I want to be able to choose to boot from CentOS on sda OR narwhal on sdc.00:11
=== OZl is now known as ozior
ansak-oneposturlin2u, are you saying that what I should do is add more grub-goo to the /boot on sdc1 and then I could accomplish this from menu choices?00:12
laserbledHi, any one using celestia here - need some help - I would like to know how can I set the recording resolution and codec in that00:13
urlin2uansak-onepost, hold on I will give you the commands in a pastebin ti be run from a live cd.00:13
ansak-oneposturlin2u, most kind00:13
mbrigdanHey, I'm trying to make sshd use a different directory for authorized_keys, but it won't change no matter what I do. Anyone know what could be going on?00:13
tomodachimbrigdan: just curious why would you want that?00:14
shygirl214I have a question00:14
mbrigdantomodachi, the default doesn't work if your home directory is encrypted00:14
ejvmbrigdan: you changed the path in /etc/ssh/sshd_config and restarted the service?00:14
ApleIs there anyway to delete a dir and everything in it all at once?00:14
shygirl214im trying to surprise my boyfriend and convert a bunch of wma to mp300:14
mbrigdanejv, Yeah, and other changes I made (as a test) took effect. But it won't let me login unless I have my key in the default directory00:15
EDinNYtrying to rip a CD to mp3...suggestions?00:15
w30Aple, rm -R00:15

japanxamp is in my download folder, when i try to sudo tar xvfz xampp-linux-1.5.5a.tar.gz -C /opt      it tell me that there is not such file or directory00:17
ApleSweet :)00:17
ejvim sure amarok and rythmbox also support some form of 'ripping'00:17

Dr_Willisman = manual :)00:18
Aplenonono, I gotcha00:18
Apleman pages = sweet.00:18
EDinNYis banshee from command line?00:18
japanwhere to put xampp to sudo tar xvfz xampp-linux-1.5.5a.tar.gz -C /opt work ?00:18
ejvdid shygirl leave already?00:18
Dr_WillisIt pays to read docs and tutorials. :) - i used to have a Huge THICK book that was the man pages printed out. ages ago00:18
urlin2uansak-onepost, so sdc2 is Natty and you have a Natty cd correct?00:18
ansak-oneposturlin2u, yes00:18
rwwjapan: xampp is not supported in this channel. Use Ubuntu's packages instead.00:19
Quantum_IonI wish I code encode MP3 and WAVS to CD format and burn them too I don't know how to do that00:19
Dr_Willisjapan:  we really dont support xampp here.. theres the lamp stack in the repos.00:19
Dr_Willis!xampp | japan00:19
ubottujapan: We do not support XAMPP installs here. Please use the LAMP stack that is in our repositories; see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ApacheMySQLPHP for more information.00:19
japanthis is no about xampp , xampp is just banal example00:19
Dr_WillisQuantum_Ion:  the k3b burner app - makes it rather trivial to  make audio cds. once you install it and the right plugins. There prob. some gnome equiliv also.00:20
Dr_Willisjapan:  id just cd to where you want it to go.. and extract the archive00:20
ansak-oneposturlin2u, and sda1 is /boot to sda2 which is LVM containing CentOS5 that I still need to use00:20
japanwhere file shoud be to install it in that way00:20
japanit says acess is dained00:20
w30Dr_Willis, yeah, electronic data is fine but with a paper book you don't have to boot it up.00:20
urlin2uansak-onepost, notice the fdisk -l command to confirm that on the live cd the partitions are showing the same sdc2 or if different, adjust accordingly. http://paste.ubuntu.com/672028/00:20
Dr_Williscd  /opt  && unp /path/to/the/archive  :)00:20
Dr_Willisw30:  plus you can read it while sitting in the err... reading room every morning. :)00:21
Quantum_IonDr_Willis, Hmmm I have that installed and I have never used the application, might give it a try, thanks00:21
ejvif shygirl comes back, tell her to be more patient next time00:21
Guest71158how to expand the harddisk space in ubuntu? i have zero space left?00:21
urlin2uansak-onepost, grub2 will rad CentOS, you need sdc2 as the bootpartition, not sdc100:21
Guest71158i need to make the partition bigger00:21
japanthis is the answer tnx dude,00:21
Dr_WillisGuest71158:  you can resize partiions with gparted.  if you got other space to put in it..00:21
Quantum_Ionejv, Now you know the reason she is called shygirl00:21
ansak-oneposturlin2u, ? s/rad/read/?00:21
Guest71158so i have to download gparted ?00:21
ejvEDinNY: banshee is a gui app, do you need command line only?00:21
urlin2uansak-onepost, rad=read00:22
Dr_WillisGuest71158:  depends. you are resizeing your / partition? if so you may want to use a live cd.. or the gparted live cd.00:22
urlin2uansak-onepost, read the link carefully and follow as it is.00:22
ejvQuantum_Ion: indeed00:22
Dr_WillisGuest71158:  you do NOT resize a partition/fs thats in use. :)00:22
Guest71158how do i boot thel ive cd00:22
Guest71158i want to resize the partition of ubuntu00:22
Dr_WillisGuest71158:  put cd in.. power up...00:22
ansak-oneposturlin2u, reading carefully... will print out and ponder.00:22
Dr_Willisgparted is on the default desktop live cd i think.00:22
ansak-oneposturlin2u, thanks for the help; will come back if there are problems :)00:23
Guest71158Dr_Willis it wment to the gnome login screen00:25
Dr_WillisGuest71158:   be  bit more verbose in your statements..   the live cd autologs in - if it booted correctly. or did it just boot your normal install.....00:26
Guest71158do i choose recvoery mode?00:26
Guest71158it's GNU GRUB00:26

aadsdas8why Ubuntu Natty doesnt support toshiba tools01:00

meth3how do i get rid of this envelop icon in the systray ?01:00
KM0201aadsdas8: i thnk the bigger questino, is why doesn't toshiba have toshiba tools for linux.. you're blaming the wrong party01:00
dagerivi just dicovered something awsome i want to share with you. if firefox wont install .xpi because incompatible; you can edit the max version in install.rdf, and it could work! i did this with moonlight01:01
zykotick9kingofswords, depends on the game but check in the ~/.wine directory somewhere01:01
jo-erlend_qin, no. I'm not allowed. /usr/bin/xauth:  error in locking authority file /home/jo-erlend/.Xauthority X11 connection rejected because of wrong authentication.01:01
aadsdas8KM0201: I installed toshiba tools from repositorie.s.01:01
kingofswordszykotick9, yeh i know ...im having trouble locating 'my documents' in wine..thats where gamessaves are normally01:01
qinjo-erlend_: You do not have .Xauthority, do you?01:01
aadsdas8KM0201: it doesnt work with this kernel01:02
jo-erlend_qin, yes. It belongs to root.01:02
zykotick9jo-erlend_, you could try "xhost +" to disable all security (as a test)01:02
qinjo-erlend_: In your ~01:02
KM0201aadsdas8: then that still isn't ubuntu's problem, toshiba needs to do a better job of making sure their package works w/ all kernels01:02
aadsdas8hm i think it's a ubuntu problem01:02
jo-erlend_zykotick9, cannot open display.01:02
aadsdas8one more problem01:02
ryan_46aadsdas8:  reinstall or switch OS. ???01:02
aadsdas8yeah im gonna back to windows just because of fan01:03
jo-erlend_qin, yes, I have that file in my home and it belongs to root.01:03
KM0201aadsdas8: actually, that would be pretty smart, a bad fan will brick a laptop very very quickly.01:03
qinjo-erlend_: ~/.Xauthority in not a root file, any way what permissions it has?01:04
KM0201aadsdas8: did you configure toshiba tools?01:04
jo-erlend_qin, but what would be much better, if it's possible, is if I can log in from the laptop using ssh and then run the applications on the servers monitor.01:04
jo-erlend_qin, 700.01:04
ApleHow can I share an external hard drive between Ubuntu machines on a Windows network? :)01:04
aadsdas8KM0201: the fan is working correctly as seen in windows 7. it is not working correctly in ubuntu 11.04. conclusion: it's ubuntu fault01:04
KM0201aadsdas8: i'm not gonna talk to someone who has drawn such a dense conclusion, but... ok.01:05
qinjo-erlend_: So you want vnc, for remote control.01:05
aadsdas8KM0201: lack of arguments but ok01:05
aadsdas8if you dont know how to help me just dont talk to me tks01:05
KM0201aadsdas8: no, the argument is, you don't know how to read, did you read this little tidbit ont hat package...  Note that these utilities work with APM features in the Toshiba BIOS.01:05

nsd_Quick printing question (hopefully): Anyone know if it's possible to specify a blank page in the gnome printing dialog page range field?02:10
zelozeloswhen i click on the main menu icon, and click logout< does anyone know the command it runs to bring up that logout dialog box to choose logout or switch users?02:10
nsd_zelozelos: Are you trying to use an alternate WM?02:10
zelozelosnsd_, no just gnome, but i use cario dock instead of the panels, but for some reason the power icon cairo dock has wont logout, only pulls up the shutdown dialog,02:11
nsd_zelozelos: Oh, okay. I don't think it's possible to get that dialog with a command unfortunately. In my case, I am using FVWM, so I wrote a script to emulate its behavior (but it's FVWM only)02:12
zelozelosnsd_, ah yeah, that wont work at all, you're prob right about the command i think the dialog is built into the applet, however i know one exists ive seen it b402:13
htmlurlin2u,  whats that abuot?  and how to get it02:13
nsd_zelozelos: Well if there is one, I don't know it, sorry. Have you tried using apropos to find it (as opposed to google?)02:13
nsd_The command apropos, that is02:14
zykotick9zelozelos, apropos searches man pages02:14
ubottuU is the 21st letter of the modern latin alphabet. Neither 'U' nor 'Ur' are words in the English language. Neither are 'R', 'Y', 'l8', 'Ne1' nor 'Bcuz'. Mangled English is hard for non-native English speakers. Please see http://geekosophical.net/random/abbreviations/ for more information.02:15
urlin2uhtml, I assume you mean the multisystem.  http://translate.google.com/translate?hl=en&sl=fr&u=http://liveusb.info/dotclear/&ei=tbtRToeiIKbhiALj34GfDw&sa=X&oi=translate&ct=result&resnum=1&ved=0CE0Q7gEwAA&prev=/search%3Fq%3Dmultisystem%26hl%3Den%26sa%3DG%26site%3Dwebhp%26prmd%3Divns02:15
zelozelosnsd_, so perhaps apropos logout? or what would be closer to what im looking for?02:16
nsd_zelozelos: Oh, I don't know, you just have to search a bunch of things, maybe grep the output for gnome02:16
zRomayni just installed vmware 2.0 on my ubuntu natty desktop02:16
vindozhi, I am confused about file permissions. I have a directory /var/www, which is owned by root, group root and has permission drw-rw-rwT. user tim is unable to read files or make new folders in that directory. I'd like to be able to.02:16
vindozwhat do I do?02:16
zRomaynthere was a prompt stating if i wanted to use  admin '' and the default was [no]02:16
zelozeloswhat i need is a way to capture the window id02:17
zRomaynso now it states that the user is "root"02:17
zykotick9zelozelos, i doubt you'll find anything in apropos for what you want :|02:17
zRomaynwhen I opened the https://localhost:8333/ui to access it, i cannot use root, since it doesn't have a password02:17
zRomayni cannot use my account either02:18
AfflictoPlease help me, I can connect to my ubuntu via VNC (using ultravnc) and I can control it with my mosue and keyboard but the screen isn't animated. it's a still picture! so I can't see what I'm doing unless I turn my back and look at the physical monitor that I'm controlling!

zykotick9Afflicto, perhaps try a different VNC client?  sorry i'm not familiar with the options on MS clients.  Good luck.02:20
zykotick9Starminn, is this a permission issue?  what output do you get when you try?  what filesystem type is it?02:21
Starminnzykotick9: It tells me that the folder that cannot be deleted is a "Read-only file system"02:21
AfflictoZykotick9: I have tried 2. ANd they both worked earlier today.02:21
zykotick9Starminn, remount the USB with r/w02:22

zelozelosact, maybe i should just permanently hide it02:34
AfflictoVindoz: I see the image of the screen. but The framrate is at ZERO. Therefore, I only see the image of the monitor as it is the instant I connect.02:34
infinituxmaybe the device permissions are set to root.02:34
wilderI guess my jokes are extra bad today heh02:35
infinituxrstreeter: chown, chmod, and chgrp are the commands used to set permissions on files and directories.02:35
rstreeterI will give that a try thanks02:36
infinituxperhaps if you change the permission on the devices root folder(s) to match your user permissions you'll be able to automatically mount without a root password02:36

nykurMy wireless is like it fills up and gets clogged.03:41
zykotick9Kage, be sure to try configuring the game to look at /dev/input/jsX they ususally default to the old /dev/jsX03:41
hylianKage most of the games can, but don't have force feedback. it just means the gamepad won't buzz in your hand if you get shot, for instance.03:41

itiliousare any/all my files in "ubuntu one" available to the public? or only files in the public folder?03:45
zykotick9itilious, there is an #ubuntuone channel that may be able to answer that better03:45
hylianhtmlinprogress: you are, but not all programs and processes are, and some programs and processes need to be given permission in their group for programs to write out to a file in said folder. so if you are trying to write to /home/username/folder/ then it should be ok no matter what, but other folders are very pretected.03:46
wilderi guess i thought a jailed user shouldn't be able to read it03:46
itiliousty zykotick9 :)03:46

Guest3115hey all, sorry guys may i ask a question here about back|track or i got the wrong place ?05:36
e_t_Guest3115: BackTrack is pretty heavily customized. You'd have better luck on a forum or channel dedicated to it.05:37
Guest3115e_t_, thanks, it sounds like it's not my thing since I'm a new dude in this field, is that correct?05:38
chpe88anyone available to answer my question?05:39
e_t_!ask | chpe8805:39
ubottuchpe88: Please don't ask to ask a question, simply ask the question (all on ONE line and in the channel, so that others can read and follow it easily). If anyone knows the answer they will most likely reply. :-)05:39
bullgard4_chpe88: I would search in Launchpad for your exact error message.05:39
e_t_chpe88: sorry, didn't see your question earlier05:39
e_t_Guest3115: BackTrack is designed for penetration testing. If you're new to Linux and just want to get your feet wet, it's probably not for you.05:41
bullgard4_Guest3115: Newcomers to Linux should not use backtracks.05:41
bullgard4_Guest3115: (Bad English.) I meant: Newcomers to Linux better do not use backtracks.05:42
Guest3115e_t_, bullgard4_ thanks guys :) should i start with Linux Mint? i have been suggested that OS for many guys, is that really cool one for freshman ?05:44
sunitwhen I am trying to ssh with ssh demo@, I am getting error ssh: connect to host port 22: Connection refused05:45
lion42Guest3115, this is, if you have not yet noticed, a channel about #ubuntu. We generally sort of maybe like ubuntu, and most of us think its pretty good for new users.05:45
e_t_Guest3115: I started with Kubuntu, but I've heard good things about Mint too, though I've never used it myself.05:45
bullgard4_Guest3115: I believe that Mint is graphically appealing for freshmen. But you will get more help using Ubuntu.05:45

Guest3115e_t_, bullgard4_ Thanks nice guys :)05:47
tntcGuest3115: Personally, I've used Gentoo, Debian, RedHat, OpenSuSE, etc. etc.,05:47
tntcGuest3115: Ubuntu (stock ubuntu) seems to have the best support for general desktop usage.05:48
Guest3115I have heard OpenSuSE is extremely hard... i overheard that its the hardest Linux out there05:48
tntcGuest3115: That's not entirely correct. There is a lot of oneclick stuff that makes life in opensuse easier05:48

tntcGuest3115: I would say gentoo is probably the most challenging to install (other than Linux from Scratch)05:49
Guest3115tntc, your suggestion is to start with Linux gentoo ?05:50
tntcGuest3115: no, I would start with Ubuntu, and install gentoo in a VM.05:50

bambanxhow can i use ls commando on console for this show me all files to begin with specific letter?05:50
lion42Masochism is absolutely essential. You -cannot- skip that step.05:51
tntcGentoo gives an important understanding of how the kernel and such works, but it is terrible for day-to-day use.05:51
=== PuffBot is now known as puffin
bambanxfor example ls sort me all files wich begin with letter A ?05:51
tntcbambanx: ls a* ?05:52
Guest3115tntc, got it:) thanks Sr for explanation, ok ill do so... ill remove backtrack now and install gemtoo and ubuntu )05:52
bullgard4_bambanx: "All"? Then you better use the find command.05:52
tntcGuest3115: I'd install Ubuntu, and then install Virtualbox05:53
lion42Guest3115, -just- install ubuntu for now05:53
lion42and -then- worry about exploring other os05:53
tntcGuest3115: Virtualbox will let you test a variety of linux distributions in a safe, contained way05:53
Guest3115tntc, I think in my case it would be better not using VB... because im running TB HDD and have no luck of space, would't this be better ?05:54
ubuntu_what kind of people have virtual box05:54
Guest3115lion42, Thanks so i don't need this so-called "Linux Mint" im pretty new i have no idea which works how...05:54
lion42Guest3115, you are a noob. partitioning manually = things can go wrong. Hard os = things can go wrong.05:54
tntcGuest3115: dual booting is kind of a pain. It requires a lot more work05:54
lion42Start with -just- ubuntu and go from there.05:55

I thought I only changed one file but the jpg that originally came from the xcf file ended up cropped as well even tho its thumbnail is the full version.

Mortahhello. I'm hoping someone can point me to the right words to google. Just installed 11.04. 10.10 was fine but the upgrade broke :D Now, whenever I open a menu for the first time all my windows disappear for about a second and then reappear. But, it only happens on a menu that hasn't been opened before.. :S07:04
GummyBearwhoppergator: ok, I'm using your solution... it did it... I was making a pipe after my AWK script but nothing else was happen, now using the grep expression alone with the AWK result is working07:05

Guest95783valthyx, you want to change the order in grub , and you want to login win first, right?07:15

ttmrichter|workSo my "old" hardware (the old MAC) is still set up as eth0, despite there being no backing hardware.07:17
valthyxGuest95783, ok, thank you07:17
GummyBearwhoppergator: ok... I'll do... thanks a lot again :)07:18
ttmrichter|workAnd my "new" hardware is being named to eth1, which is causing problems.07:18
Guest95783valthyx, my pleasure07:18
Atharva<melvincv_> : Does it also have more powerful motherboard settings ?07:18
Mortahok... looks like gnome is broken for me07:19
MortahKDE runs with no flicker :D07:19
valthyxby the way, is there any way to delete the linux version that i am not using?07:19
* Guest95783 is a pink bunny07:19
valthyxfor example, in the grup menu, i have a newer version and an older version, i would like to delete the newer version from my computer, how do i do that?07:20
whoppergatorttmrichter|work: i'm not sure why eth1 is causing problems, but something is definitely not right if it shows eth0 and there is no device07:20
Guest95783valthyx, wait a sec , let me check my 11.0407:20
valthyxGuest95783, okay07:21
whoppergatorvalthyx: yes, you can purge the older kernel, then run update-grub07:21
valthyxwhoppergator, how do i purge it?07:22
valthyxi am sorry, i am still new to linux07:22

bullgard4_sunit: 550 is probably too restrictive. But I do not know the best value. I myself would probably start with 550. If it does not work, I would gradually allow more access rights.07:23
ttmrichter|workwhoppergator: eth1 is a problem because there's nothing in /etc/network/interfaces for eth1 (or eth2 if this gets further cloned and so on).07:23
whoppergatorvalthyx: np at all. if you are new, you should consider keeping the old kernel for backup/emergency cases07:23
Guest95783valthyx, to remove the new kernel from grub list , you should do07:23
ttmrichter|workSo when the new guest OS is launched, it has no network active.  I have to go in and hand-edit files to make it work, which kind of resists automation.07:24
valthyxwhoppergator, actually i want to remove the newer kernel, some of my devices do not work07:24
[deXter]Hi all, xsane takes a long time to search for my network scanner. Is there a way I can force it to look at a specific IP? (the scanner has a static IP)07:25
Guest95783valthyx,  you should  just edit the  grub.cfg07:25
whoppergatorvalthyx: take a look at uname -a for your current kernel version, then do an apt-cache search linux-image to see your options. then you can apt-cache purge the newest and run update-grub07:25
whoppergatorvalthyx: sorry, that's 'apt-get purge' at the end there07:26
valthyxwhoppergator, thanks alot.07:27
Guest95783hi , i want my my computer boot faster , is there any way to make it ?07:27
ttmrichter|workD'oh!  Sorry, braino there.07:28
lizbethI am having problems starting the desktop environment in ubuntu 11.04. I think its because of ati driver.07:29
lizbethDoes someone know how to fix that?07:29
bullgard4_Guest95783: Use a newer Ubuntu distribution.07:30
Guest95783bullgard4, mine 11.0407:30
Guest95783bullgard4,  i means: to forbidden sth  to let the os boots faster07:31
kapilkaisareGreetings all. I am trying to edit the /etc/hosts file of my 11.04 installation to use a few hosts via a VPN I intend to use. Trouble is, whenever I restart the system, the /etc/hosts file returns to its original state. Does anyone have an idea why it might be happening? I tried using auditd to watch the file, and I get a possible write by a check-new-release - most likely a python script.07:31
whoppergatorGuest95783: what are you finding to be slow? how many seconds does it take currently?07:31
bullgard4_Guest95783: My Ubuntu 11.10 boots even faster than Ubuntu 11.04. But I can not recommend it to you using it before October or November, 2011.07:31
Guest95783whoppergator, about 39 secs07:31
[deXter]Guest95783: Take a look at startup applications and you'll find several things you can uncheck, like the bluetooth stuff. Also, depends on your partition layout.. if you can put your / right a the top of the drive (after /boot, ofc) it'll be better07:32
Guest95783bullgard4, Wow , you are using 11.1007:32
bullgard4_Guest95783: Yes.07:32
lizbethI am having problems starting the desktop environment in ubuntu 11.04.07:33
lizbethDoes someone know how to fix that?07:33
bullgard4_Guest95783: If you do not use the X Server, your computer will boot much faster.07:33

Guest95783deXter, yeah you right , i07:33
Guest95783have done that07:33
bullgard4_lizbeth: Please analyze your dmesg log.07:34
Guest95783bullgard4, ok , i have forbidden that .07:35
lizbethbullgard4, how?07:35
whoppergatorttmrichter|work: sorry i'm not more help with your issue, it doesn't sound like a configuration issue to me, but something old thing still hanging around from before. maybe you could purge and reinstall, but i don't know if that's safe for udev on a running system07:35
bullgard4_lizbeth: By reading this text and understanding the messages about desktop environment.07:36
ttmrichter|workwhoppergator: purge and reinstall what?07:36
whoppergatorlizbeth: dmesg | less07:36
whoppergatorttmrichter|work: udev? i'm just shooting in the dark here. if there was some way to completely rebuild the intial networking settings, i would say go for it07:37
goerAre ther any animated .png  (?) icons I can use on the Gnome Panel for my Luckybackup07:38
lizbethbullgard4, whoppergator I am reading it but can't see anything interesting.07:38
almagestHello. During some group management, i accidentaly did a usermod -g instead of a usermod -G (replace instead of add). Now im unable to 'use' sudo. Can anyone assist me please? Id be very grateful07:38
ttmrichter|workwhoppergator: This is still not a solution for automating the process of creating test servers.  I can't purge and reinstall udev without putting in a manual step to do so.07:38
ttmrichter|workI need to be able to clone a VM with new MAC addresses and actually have Ubuntu *WORK*.  Currently this isn't happening.  :(07:39
jpdsttmrichter|work: Have you deleted 70-persistent-net.rules ?07:40
ttmrichter|workjpds: Yes.07:40
ttmrichter|workAnd edited it and ...07:40
overcluckerkapilkaisare: i'm not sure that it is still true, but i remember having a problem where NetworkManager would make alterations to /etc/hosts on boot. In my case, simply changing the file to immutable solved the issue. sudo chattr +i /etc/hosts. chattr -i to make it mutable again.07:40
dttahhey guys i have a question, exactly what filesystem type should be a partition(fat...ext4... etc) for Data file purposes ? my filesystem partition is ext407:40
ttmrichter|workWhen I clone the VM, however, there's obviously a 70-*.rules.07:41
ttmrichter|workAnd that's when the problem happens.07:41
whoppergatorkapilkaisare: what edits are you making. network-manager controls some of those settings07:41
ttmrichter|workUdev is just not smart enough to figure out that the eth0 hardware no longer exists and instead tacks on a new entry.07:41
almagestto be able to use sudo, which group do i have to be part in, admin? can anyone running ubuntu please do a groups <username> to check?07:42
dttahhey guys i have a question, exactly what filesystem type should be a partition(fat...ext4... etc) for Data file purposes ? my filesystem partition is ext407:42
overcluckeralmagest: admin is the default ubuntu sudo group07:42
ttmrichter|workdttah: What kind of data and what use case scenario?07:42
whoppergatorttmrichter|work: is there anything you can do with udevadm?07:42
kapilkaisareoverclucker, That looks like it might just work! Danke!07:43
lizbethI am having problems starting the desktop environment in ubuntu 11.04. XFCE loads when I start recovery session as root but doesn't load when I try to start it as a regular user.07:43
jasonmsphey all.  Anyone have a good link that explains how to share my internet connection (source is ethernet) by creating a wireless network within ubuntu 11.04?07:43
kapilkaisarewhoppergator, I was adding a few IP->Hostname maps in there. I suspect the network-manager might be behind the overwriting.07:43
whoppergatorkapilkaisare: yup that probably the case. network-manager wants to be the boss, so you could make the mappings in its configuration, or just turn it off07:44
kapilkaisarewhoppergator, Is it possible to make such changes via the network-manager itself.07:44
dttahttmrichter|work: the partition is going to be used for pics,movies,videos,music..., what filesystem type should i decide for it? please.07:45
sunitbullgard4_ :  I am getting  -   Permissions 0550 for '/etc/ssh/ssh_host_dsa_key' are too open07:45
ttmrichter|workdttah: Do you want it accessible to Windows or anything like that?07:45
almagestoverclucker: thanks! and since i need to be in that group to add myself to that group, i should reboot, change runlevel and hopefully manage that there?07:45
whoppergatorjasonmsp: are you connecting to an AP, or do you need to BE the AP?07:45
dttahttmrichter|work: no, only linux07:45
ttmrichter|workWell, if your main partition is already ext4, you might as well use it for your data partition as well.07:46
jasonmspwhoppergator:  I need to be the AP.07:46
dttahttmrichter|work: so ext4 can work well for my data files? like music videos pics ?07:46
jasonmspwhoppergator: i have an incoming internet connection and I want to transmit that to the other laptops.07:46
ttmrichter|workdttah: Define "work well" here?07:47
ttmrichter|workIt's a file system.07:47
ttmrichter|workIt stores data.07:47
ttmrichter|workIt gives the data back on demand.07:47
whoppergatorkapilkaisare: yeah, there is a scripts folder for network-manager07:48
dttahttmrichter|work: I mean to say " is ext4 supposed to be used for data files, I mean can that type of filesystem run data files normally and accurately ? "07:48
overcluckersunit: ls -l /etc/ssh/ssh_host_dsa_key it should be -rw------- , otherwise sudo chmod 600 /etc/ssh/ssh_host_dsa_key07:49
ttmrichter|workdttah: What, precisely, would a non-data file look like?  I'm confused.07:49
bullgard4_sunit:  What about 540 ?07:49
jasonmspwhoppergator:  bump..  I need to be the AP.07:50
sunitbullgard4_ : i am trying.07:50
goerOr maybe my questions should be, are animated icons possible on Gnome panel?07:50
codingenesishow can i record my desktop ??07:50
codingenesisi want to prepare tutorials07:51
dttahttmrichter|work: lol like system files are't data files, data files are considered such as music...vidoes text documents, music, pics... such things are data files, and i was wondering if i recreate my partition as ext4 would it be ok for my data files ? I hope now you understood me :)07:51
codingenesisany  software like bb Flash back07:51

Unknown_MonkeyI have a program called phone manager and It connects to my phone via usb and then it allows my text messages to come up on my computer and It wants me to specify a serial port and it give a example of /dev/tty1 and I was woudnering is there a way of viewing all connect usb devices like lsusb but shows the connection path07:53
goergoogle it for latest version. Put icon on desktop. Click icon. :)07:53
ttmrichter|workdttah: 99.44% of system files are files.  Only the /dev, /proc and /sys trees aren't really files.  But the kernel?  Is a data file.  /bin/ls?  Is a data file.  So any file system will allow you to store and recover data.  The various file systems each have their limitations and their quirks (which is why I wouldn't recommend, say, FAT unless you need to share with Windows).  But yes, ext4 will easily store and retrieve files,07:53
goerGoota go now. Bye all :)07:53
whoppergatorjasonmsp: you're going to be looking into hostapd then. you might start here: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WifiDocs/WirelessAccessPoint but i'm sure there are better and more up to date tutorials out there07:54

urlin2ualmagest, did you forget the password?07:57
mint_use g++ compiler07:57
Flannelalmagest: it's easiest to reboot into the recovery console07:57
misaqoverclucker, I used make before and it was ok. but now I can't compile. error says permission denied07:57
almagesturlin2u: i know the password, but did a usermod -g instead of usermod -G. Then i cannot use sudo since im not in admin group07:58
misaqmint_,  I used g++ too. i receive errors07:58
Sp4rKymisaq: pastebin full log07:58
Flannelalmagest: you probably did -G without the -a, -g will change your primary group, but shouldn't remove you from the secondaries.07:58
Flannelalmagest: in the future, consider using adduser instead of usermod.07:58
misaqSp4rKy, can you delineate more?07:58
Sp4rKymisaq: put your log on http://paste.ubuntu.com/07:59
urlin2ualmagest, you need a password to edit the group file.07:59
Sp4rKy(the result of your make, with the "permission denied" errors)07:59
almagestFlannel: thanks for the tips. i actually did both of them, first -g then -G. Bad idea. The recovery console will make me root then?07:59
Flannelalmagest: yep.07:59
misaqSp4rKy: and then?08:00
almagesturlin2u: yes, i know the password luckily, but the group file needs admin rights. catch-2208:00
Sp4rKymisaq: and then give us the link of your paste08:00

misaqiceroot_: yes08:06
iceroot_misaq: also think about using a gui instead of hacking on the shell08:06
misaqiceroot_: thanks for the tip. you know, I used to compile and run with make easily before. but now i receive these errors08:07
mint_make space between #include and <iostream>08:07
almagestFlannel: just to be certain, i reboot into recovery, then issue a; adduser -G admin <myuser>08:08
Sp4rKymisaq: if "test" contains your code, then you have to compile it. If it's the result of your compile, then you might need to add +x permissions08:08
almagestFlannel: to fix the group issue?08:08
Sp4rKymisaq: and make is not a compiler08:08
misaqSp4rKy: I know. but I used to type "make test" on the cmdline. and it worked fine08:09
Sp4rKydepends of your makefile08:09
iceroot_misaq: use a gui08:09
jjp_misaq: sorry, I take in route. What's the actual error for target 'test' of your makefile ?08:10

zagibuwhat is your question exactly?08:25
misaqjjp_: dear jjp_  i tried it. not ok. can it be because of my include files displacement?08:25
bambanxGuys in console how can i copy my last output?08:25

oisgamok... there's a lot of diferent threads and idk if somebody told me something about my loading screen issue xD08:28
mintth0r: but the thing is, when i dont mount NON filesystem partition and trying to go ahead by pressing Install a dialog pops up and asks " no mount point is assigned for the ext4 file system in partition #5 of SCSI1 (0,0,0) (sda)." and in this case partition 5 is the partition which im going to use for videos pics music... it forces me to choose mount point08:29

mintth0r: of sorry i have forgotten to check it as /home, i did, and it passed away thanks:) now just tell me how many GB i need to provide for this swap-space? is 5gb enough ?08:32
th0rmint: with 16GB ram, I wouldn't bother with swap08:33
discostu2can i force ubuntu, or ubuntu recovery console, to force VGA graphics from the boot options in grub? i cannot get past ubuntu selection because hardware acceleration on my card is fubared but i can load win xp because i was able to delete the nvidia driver through win xp safe mode.08:33
th0rmint: just checking, you are installing either 64 bit or pae kernel, correct?08:33
mintth0r: mhhh have no idea wha "pae kernal" is, but for sure im installing 64bit one08:34
th0rmint: the pae kernel allows 32bit systems to use more than 3GB ram08:34
mintth0r: question question please, if i check in the box "Format?" it will format the partition before it will install OS in it ?08:35
dr-williswouldent make sence to format it after the install ;)08:36
th0rnubt: correct. If you were installing an upgrade, you would NOT format /home, that way all your personal data and config files would remain intact. But for a new install, format both / and /homt08:36
Shambler[BishopI have latest Ubuntu running in VirtualBox, and the screen has turned black, but it is still working away in the background (it is encoding a DVD and CPU is still going processing that etc.). I've tried switching VirtualBox from fullscreen back to windowed etc., but I can't fix the black screen issue. what might be wrong here? (have asked on VirtualBox channel with no help)08:36
Shambler[Bishopwant to find a way to fix this without reboot08:37
mintdr-willis: lol no im about due the installation when you divide HDD for partition there is a checkbox BEFORE installation it says "Format?" I guess it stands for, format the partition then install OS :)08:37
yourstrulyI would tend to disagree with that viewpoint08:37
discostu2can i force ubuntu, or ubuntu recovery mode, to usa VGA graphics from the boot options in grub? i cannot get past ubuntu selection because hardware acceleration on my card is fubared but i can load win xp because i was able to delete the nvidia driver through win xp safe mode.08:38
chavoShambler[Bishop: it probably locked the screen, i've had that happen08:38
Shambler[BishopI turned the screensaver off though08:38
dr-willisShambler[Bishop:  sounds like the screensaver or powerssver /screenlock. you could ssh in and restert gdm but that wull reset x. but nit reboot08:39
Shambler[Bishopwhen I switch virtualbox to 'seamless' mode, it draws the windows, just in a very bugged state, like they are not rendering properly (or at all)08:39
chavoi was able to focus the window and enter my password here08:39
Shambler[Bishopif I restart gdm would that interrupt running programs?08:40
lynx____I'm getting some serious kernel problems08:40
lynx____how do I reinstall the kernel08:40
dr-willisShambler[Bishop:  restarts X so x aps get killed..08:40
Shambler[Bishopya okey, is there some way of fixing this whilst avoiding that?08:41
misaqlynx____: if you are a newbie like me, i recommend you to reinstall the OS not the kernel alone. kernel is hard to reconfigure08:41
lynx____  How do I reinstall the kernel, aptitude --reinstall instlal kernel package name08:41
lynx____well it's getting annoying I already wasted a CD08:42
lynx____my computer keeps crashing08:42
dr-willislynx____: perhaps state the real probmems08:42
dr-williswith details08:42
lynx____I keep seeing IRQ-type errors, and even worse... the computer keeps crashing if it seems to be using too much memory, or if I use a program for a long time08:42
misaqlynx____: once i tried to recompile kernel. it was not a success.08:42
discostu2can i force ubuntu, or ubuntu recovery mode, to usa VGA graphics from the boot options in grub? i cannot get past ubuntu selection because hardware acceleration on my card is fubared but i can load win xp because i was able to delete the nvidia driver through win xp safe mode.08:42
lynx____It's as if my IRQ is08:42
misaqlynx____: did it use to work fine before?08:43
dr-willisbefor what.08:43
misaqlynx____: is your machine Intel?08:43
lynx____before nothing, the kernel started giving horrible IRQ errors08:43
lynx____it doesn't matter what machine type it is08:43
lynx____like I said, it's the vmlinuz file itself08:44
discostu2lynx____: calm down08:44
dr-willisi doubt if reinstalling the kernel will fix anything.08:44
bjhaidis there anyway i can ensure my network manager starts immediately @ startup, because I have an app in my startup application that needs network to start and it wouldnt start because network manager starts only when ubuntu has completed startup08:44
dr-willisunless the fsgot cyrrupted.08:44
lynx____ I think that's what happened08:44
lynx____I kept getting errors when running "Parellizing fsck"08:45
kwtmbjhaid: You might use the ifconfig command to connect to the network without using network manager.08:45
lynx____bu tit was only a few files08:45
lynx____I power off my computer, not shut down08:45
lynx____that could also be why08:45
kwtmbjhaid: nm is more for a user-friendly connect.  Check out  man ifconfig08:45
bjhaidkwtm: i place the ifconfig in my script08:45
dr-willisthen it maybe best to reinstall. you can try the kernel iguess.08:45
=== dayanand is now known as djd
kwtmbjhaid: You do?  And it's not working?08:45
bjhaidkwtm: i got a bash script that starts up my app, just asking if i should place it in my script?08:46
dr-willisapt-get has a --reinstall option08:46
lynx____so I type aptitude --reinstall install nvidia-kernel-2.6.32-5-686?08:46
lynx____or apt-get08:46
dr-willisthats not a valid kernal package name is it?08:46
OldFarterIf im sitting next to the wifi router why  does it take half of eternity to connect?08:46
kwtmbjhaid: That is what I am suggesting, that you use ifconfig in your script.  There may be other ways as well, but I've used ifconfig to force a connect and it seemed to work.  This was some time ago, though.  Just tossing out an idea.08:47
lynx____thanks, apt-get worked, aptitude didn't08:47
bjhaidkwtm: thanks08:48
kwtmbjhaid: Ethernet (wired) connection?08:48
rethusis there easy way to switch from 32 bit natty to 64 bit natty?08:49
bjhaidkwtm: yes08:50
bjhaidkwtm: still did not work08:50
kwtmbjhaid: ifconfig fails to give you a connection?  Or it reports a connection but programs aren't able to use it?08:51
discostu2can i force ubuntu, or ubuntu recovery mode, to usa VGA graphics from the boot options in grub? i cannot get past ubuntu selection because hardware acceleration on my card is fubared but i can load win xp because i was able to delete the nvidia driver through win xp safe mode.08:51
kwtmbjhaid: After you use ifconfig to connect, you might want to ping www.google.com to see if there's a connection. (For debugging, not for permanent.)08:52
bjhaidkwtm: if i include ping www.google.com in the script, how do i get the response?08:53
kwtmbjhaid: Redirect.  Something like       ping -c 4 www.google.com > "$HOME/debug.log"    or something.08:55
kwtmbjhaid: You are familiar with shell programming?  Bash programming?08:55
bjhaidkwtm: a little08:55
bjhaidkwtm: would do that now08:56
kwtmOk.  So, "still did not work" means ... what?  Computer did not respond?  Exploded?  Your application failed to connect?  etc.08:56
rootls -alh08:57
kwtmbjhaid: ^^   (Oh, and you can ask for help in #bash, too, although they are not as noobfriendly)08:57
jasonmspanyone know why I am getting "SET failed on device wlan0 ; Operation not supported." after - iwconfig wlan0 mode ad-hoc  ???08:57
=== root is now known as Guest46016
bjhaidkwtm: ping:unknown host to www.google.com08:57
kwtmbjhaid: What are you getting for ifconfig?  Is the ethernet connection up?  Do you have a IP address?  (I'm guessing you're DHCP)08:58
bjhaidkwtm: i run a static address on that machine08:58
kwtmjasonmsp: Is it because your wlan0 device doesn't do adhoc?  Or that your wlan0 device isn't working/isn't what you think it is?08:58
creative2innovatenjoying Ubuntu :)08:59
bjhaidkwtm: or any idea how i can specify the static address for the machine to use?09:00
kwtmbjhaid: Okay, do you have another static address to test?  Another machine?  Your router?   The fact that you have an unknown host means that DNS is not working to translate google.com to
bjhaidkwtm: how about if i ping the machine i need to connect to and see what the response would be?09:00
kwtmbjhaid: ??  What do you mean?  The fact that you have a static address set up means that you have the static address already, no?09:00
kwtmbjhaid: If you ping the machine to connect to, and fail, you don't know if it's a connection problem.  Google probably hasn't failed, so pinging it to see if it works will narrow down the problem.09:01
bjhaidkwtm: its on a local network and cannot fail, but i would ping google like you said09:01
kwtmbjhaid: I'm assuming this is all on bootup and that nm takes effect by the time you get control of your machine.09:02
bjhaidkwtm: you are right09:02
kwtmbjhaid: Well, if all is on local network then you can ping more than one machine to make sure it's not the pinged machine that's failing.  Maybe ping the router if it responds.09:02
bjhaidkwtm: thanks, would do a remote connection to the machine get that done, gimmie some mins09:03
kwtmbjhaid: What is the output of ifconfig?  Does it show the connection up yet?  Maybe it's still booting, and you just need to wait till the connection is there before running your app.09:03
bjhaidkwtm: ifconfig shows nothing09:03
kwtmbjhaid: Sorry, bit of a noob here, not sure what you mean by a "remote connection".  You don't mean VNC or something, do you?  That's way after bootup.09:04
kwtmbjhaid: What do you mean "ifconfig shows nothing"?  Surely it must show something, like  Does it see the ethernet interface?09:04
bjhaidkwtm: i am chatting on another machine, so i use vnc to connect to the machine09:04
kwtmbjhaid: Do you need to set your DNS?09:04
bjhaidbjhaid: no since i dont need to connect to the internet right away09:05
susundbe1gHi! Does anyone else have problems with Skype and natty? My first call gets 'scrambled' and while booting up the login sound of skype is also disturbed.09:05
bahamashello. i've installed the latest updates for 11.04 and now my wireless can't see any existing wireless networks anymore. how can i debug this?09:05
kwtmbjhaid: Oh, I see what you mean: you are currently using a VNC connection to set up the machine in question.  That's fine, it doesn't matter what you use.  I thought you mean doing VNC at bootup.09:05
rethuson kubuntu-page i see in download section 32bit is recommended... why  is 64 bit not stable?09:05
bjhaidnope, else i would have to log-off and login to communicate with you09:06
bahamasi don't have access to the computer right now, so i can't try out your suggestions09:06
jasonmspkwtm:  the device itself supports ad-hoc. and lsusb lists 'Bus 001 Device 003: ID 0bda:8189 Realtek Semiconductor Corp. RTL8187B '09:06
jasonmspjasonmsp: any thoughts where to go from here?09:06
kwtmjasonmsp: Oh.  Then I don't know.09:06
Shambler[Bishopso, is there a way to recover from a black screen in ubuntu, where the programs are still working ok etc. just screen is black, without losing programs active state?09:07
rethuson (k)ubuntu-page i see in download section 32bit is recommended... why  is 64 bit not stable?09:08
gryAdd a new monitor? I'd not be sure we would be able to move X instance to that, though09:08
Shambler[Bishopdon't think I can; is running in virtualbox09:08
bjhaidkwtm: yet to set it right, but ifconfig showed as the ip address09:08
bahamasrethus: it probably is, and if you want to use more than 4 GB of RAM, you need a 64-bit system09:10
kwtmbjhaid: Okay, you have multiple interfaces to connect over the net.  "lo" is the one you always have.  So, ifconfig does not "show nothing".  What does it show?  Does it show a "eth0" interface?   Is it up? Down?  etc.  Your lack of detail is not really helping.09:10
Shambler[Bishopdoes ubuntu try to automatically recover from graphics driver failures?09:10
rethusbahamas: but why on ubuntu and kubuntu page in download-section 32 bit is recommended09:11
Shambler[Bishoplegacy computers prolly09:11
Shambler[Bishopancient shitboxes09:11
bahamasanyone have any suggestions about how to debug this wireless issue or where to look? the wireless card is active. it just can't find any networks09:11
bahamasrethus: not all applications are compiled for 64 bits09:11
rethusbahamas: is there a list which show which are missing09:12
rethusi think about to create a new partition.... install 64 bit and switch to 64 bit.... is this possible? Which would be the best way to do this09:13
bjhaidkwtm: i would paste the result of ifconfig09:15
oratedI'm getting following errors on every upgrade, installaion - debconf: unable to initialize frontend: Dialog debconf: (Dialog frontend requires a screen at least 13 lines tall and 31 columns wide.) debconf: falling back to frontend: Readline. What's the reson and how to fix i?09:15
kwtmbjhaid: Sorry, this seems to be unproductive and you have still not responded to the question of "what is the output of ifconfig?" which I asked 10 minutes ago09:15
kwtmbjhaid: Oh, there you are.09:15
bahamasrethus: do you need a 64-bit system (using more than 4 GB of RAM)? you can use a virtual machine to install a 64-bit version and play with it09:15
bjhaidkwtm: sorry just looked away a little09:15
bjhaidgoing to paste it now09:16

bjhaidkwtm: by ip address, i specified a static address for the machine, just wondering if i could specify an address for the guy in my script?09:20
votzbahamas: Right, but that prompts me for the root pword which I have no clue what it is09:20
kwtmbjhaid: What is "the guy"?  And where do you specify "a static address"?09:20
bjhaidkwtm: my local machine, i am currently specifying the static address in the network manager09:21
kwtmbjhaid: Please be clear.  The way I understand it is: you have decided what the address of your machine in question (let's call it MIQ) is.  Is this IPv6 or just IPv4?  Also, you want to connect to Some Other Machine called The Guy (SOMTG).  Where on the network is it located?  What address?09:22
kwtmbjhaid: Okay, so do I understand correctly that you are telling Network Manager what the address of MIQ is, and now I am suggesting that you use ifconfig before network manager even comes up, and you are wondering why ifconfig does not know what address of MIQ is?09:23
bahamasvotz: talk to your system administrator then09:23
bjhaidkwtm: MIQ uses IPv4 to connect with SOMTG (10.10.5.x)09:23
votzbahamas: I am my system admin, heh09:23
bjhaidkwtm: i see why ifconfig doesnt know what the address of the machine is09:23
bjhaidkwtm: anyway i can specify it in my code?09:23

laserbledHi, can anyone suggest an application which can record my desktop video in 1080p HD please09:24
kwtmbjhaid: You mean can you specify what your MIQ's IP address is?  Yes, of course.  Isn't that the whole purpose of using ifconfig?09:25
aceanyway, I've just formatted my machine and made a clean install of ubuntu only.. wooo hooo... hoooo .hooo09:25
bjhaidkwtm: thanks09:25
acenay ideas of the best apps out there I might need?09:25
kwtmbjhaid: Okay, in case I wasn't clear, you want to do     ifconfig eth0  or whatever the IP address is.    Near the end you want to do  ifconfig >> "$HOME/debug.log" to find out of it worked.09:25
bjhaidkwtm: i think i need to go readup ifconfig, though i dont mind if you could give me the syntax:)09:25
bjhaidkwtm: i would do that gimmie say 5mins, thanks09:26
kwtmbjhaid: Ok, sorry, I am willing to provide help but I am not going to work harder than you.  Please do "man ifconfig".09:26
bjhaidkwtm: thanks alot09:26
kwtmbjhaid: Best of luck.  I am going to go to sleep now.  It looks like there are a few pieces missing from your script but some basic homework on your part should fill in the missing gaps.09:26
laserbledbefore that, is it possible to record video from desktop at a resolution greater than my native resolution ?09:26
bjhaidkwtm: thanks a million09:27

recon69_laphi all, anyone know a command for cleaning away updates to free disk space, probably have about 3 years worth on system09:29
philipballewhey! my cd's are not showing up  in my /media folder. how can i tell if there just not mounting or its a hardware problem09:31
iceroot_recon69_lap: sudo apt-get autoremove && sudo apt-get clean09:31
kwtmbjhaid: One more summary, just in case I was unclear (my fault).  So, MIQ is trying to connect to SOMTG, but nm (network manager) is not yet ready.  The point is to use ifconfig to replace nm, because ifconfig is much easier on scripts (and faster).  So you run ifconfig to say "connect to network. Use eth0.  This is our (MIQ's) IP address.  This is the address of the DNS server." Then you optionally check the results of the ifconfig.09:31
kwtm Then you go run the program that connects to SOMTG.09:32
recon69_lapthx iceroot_, i'll give them a spin09:32
kwtmAnd, in case you didn't realize already, ifconfig needs superuser to run.  Root, or get root privileges.  Afterward, you can still run nm; I think it will take over from ifconfig, but it might disconnect briefly while it rearranges connections the way nm itself likes it.09:33

MrNthDegreebe *very* careful when using this command and ensure you have not typoed before running it09:36

MrNthDegreeethanol, and then you need to recreate it in the following way09:36
MrNthDegreemkdir /tmp && chown root:root /tmp && chmod 1777 /tmp09:36
kwtmMrNthDegree: Why does he need to delete all of /tmp first?09:37
MrNthDegreekwtm, because there are hidden files which can interfere with write processes09:37
ethanolyeah it makes no sense to do that09:37
ethanolI just want to write to /tmp/test.log09:37
kwtmMrNthDegree: ?? Not sure what that means.  What are the negative consequences of doing   sudo chown --recursive root:root /tmp   ?  What write processes would be interfered with?09:38
kwtmethanol: Is your    /tmp   confirmed to be writeable by everyone?09:38

ethanolstupid person that wrote the class only used is_writable on the filename, but if the file isnt there yet it is not writeable obviously...09:39
kwtmethanol: Ahh... that would explain it. :P09:39
ethanolgonne add checking if dirname() is is_writeable() or file_exists()09:39
kwtmMrNthDegree: Still not sure how pipe would be affected, especially if it's made all writeable first before chowning, but what do I know, I'm just a noob.  Anyway, sounds like problem's been found.09:40
hermanushi all. I've been using FileZilla for years, and it was always very stable, but last year things are degrading and it hangs a lot. I'm really dependant on my FTP-client, so I need it to 'just work'. Are there any alternatives for FileZilla that come close to its functionality but run very stable? Much thanks for any answer.09:41
MrNthDegreekwtm, orbit-<username> is a good example09:41

dddbmt_Hi guys. For some reason when viewing flash videos on the internet, they're at double speed and there seem to be no sound. I have done anything (on purpose) to set it off.10:44
m_fulderglebihan no I really couldn't get it working :S .. have managed to set it up before 1-2 times but I thought that because I only need a relay-smtp I could use some easier solution10:44
glebihanm_fulder, do you have a firewall running ?10:45
ActionParsnipdddbmt_: can you give the output of:   lsb_release -a; uname -a; dpkg -l | egrep "flash|gnash|swf"10:45
ravigdrk I want share a folder using samba with only copy & past the content but no delete or overwrite how do that!?10:46
m_fulderglebihan you mean a firewall as an router where I can open ports etc?..when I think of firewall I always think of something like windows firewall which I can stop but I haven't seen anything like that on ubuntu :O10:46
dddbmt_ActionParsnip, http://paste.ubuntu.com/672345/10:46
glebihanm_fulder, well I mean both actually. there are also firewalls on ubuntu, could you check the output of 'service ufw status'10:47

glebihanm_fulder, either you stop it, or you allow connection on port 25, via "sudo ufw allow 25"10:49
dddbmt_ActionParsnip, thanks you very much! Will I have to reboot?10:49
m_fulderah yeah thats better glebihan..but do I really need a connection on port 25 on my machine if I only want to use relay-smtp?10:50
ActionParsnipdddbmt_: no, this is linux. Just close all web browsers and rerun. You are good to go10:50
m_fulder@ glebihan  *10:50
ActionParsnipdddbmt_: the only real time you need to reboot is to change kernels10:50
ravigdrkeven it don't help me10:51
ravigdrkthey can't  past the file10:51
glebihanm_fulder, yes your machine will still be seen as a mail server from any client connecting to it, and you will need to allow smtp connections to it10:51
dddbmt_ActionParsnip, I asked because it's still the same after restarting chromium.10:51
ActionParsnippirlo: I suggest you log a bug. You can always force install the deb. The package system doesn't like packages containing the same file. Is the deb from a PPA per chance10:52
m_fulderaha oki then I get it glebihan but still after allowing port 25 and trying to telnet localhost 25 I get the same error message while running nullmailer10:52
ActionParsnipdddbmt_: does it happen in all browsers?10:52
dddbmt_ActionParsnip, yes.10:52
ActionParsnipdddbmt_: do you use any flash based extensions to the browser?10:52
dddbmt_ActionParsnip, the only extension I have for chromium is Speed dial.10:53

dddbmt_ActionParsnip, okay. brb10:53
ActionParsnipfasta: when you last pulled it out of a system, what steps did you take. What file system is the USB partition?10:53
pirloActionParsnip, i don't think so, its from a package called "xul-ext-ubufox"10:54
m_fulderglebihan yeah I guess :P10:54
glebihanm_fulder, to be sure, "service nullmailer status"10:54
fastaActionParsnip: it is vfat, it is a long time ago that I last used it.10:54

dddbmt_ActionParsnip, it's still the same.10:55
fastaActionParsnip: write-protect is off.10:55
m_fulderglebihan didn't work they want me to use /etc/init.d/nullmailer instead of service and then there's no status attribute :O10:55
dddbmt_ActionParsnip, Could I by a mistake have changed a setting somewhere?10:55
ravigdrk I want to share a folder using samba and users can  only copy & past the files and folders t but not to delete or overwrite how do that!?10:55
ActionParsnipfasta: ok, when you are done with the device and want to remove it, what steps do you take?10:55
glebihanm_fulder, then try "sudo /etc/init.d/nullmailer restart" and then try to connect via telnet again10:55
ActionParsnipdddbmt_: doubt it, if you make a new user is it the same there?10:55
fastaActionParsnip: I click somewhere in the GUI that I want to umount it.10:56
m_fulderglebihan still same error :P10:56
fastaActionParsnip: can you just say why mount /dev/sdb1 -o rw /media/blah does not work?10:56

m_fulderglebihan: http://pastebin.com/e8uiM3Y410:56

glebihanm_fulder, I don't think you can use directly nullmailer in php, but it should work if you symlink sendmail to nullmailer-send, eg "sudo ln -s /usr/sbin/nullmailer-send  /usr/sbin/sendmail"11:12

wolfrici have a strange issue with the screen not updating sometimes. I'm not exactly sure on what level it is. So if i change workspace and then try type in a terminal or a text editor or even do something in the browser, the image stays still and i can't see anything. if i just do alt tab (even if there aren't any other windows) the changes start appearing and it's fine from then onwards11:25

glebihanm_fulder, I think you have to use nullmailer-queue then nullmailer-send, once again you should have a look at the manpages, also for it to work in php, you may have to edit your php.ini file and set the sendmail_path to "sendmail -t -i -f<name>@<domain>"11:27

ActionParsnipKcGenesis: this channel is for support. That's what it is about11:28
sipiorvkushner: configuration script? we were talking about software packages, as i recall...11:29
ActionParsnipspo0kz: what speed etc is your CPU?11:29
vkushnersipior: well, there is this server configuration script that as part of its running does apt-get update and then tries to install some packages11:29
spo0kzActionParsnip, its perfectly capable, its an i3 2.9ghz i run 3gb of ram11:29

KcGenesisActionParsnip, how does this chat actually works11:33
=== Roberto35 is now known as Richard|
ActionParsnipspo0kz: hmm, not sure then personally, maybe others can advise. Have you tried a light OS like xpud/puppy etc, see if it happens there11:34
spo0kzrumpe1, ubuntu is 11.04 vbox is 4.1.2 nothing fancy going on here lol11:34
ActionParsnipKcGenesis: you are doing it now. You ask a support question. If people can help they will reply11:34
m_fulderglebihan ok I have now read through the docs for nullmailer-queue and nullmailer-send .. I have also added the -f flag to my php.ini .. but I don't get one thing in the nullmailer-queue doc. there is written I should terminate all lines with single line-feed character? Which one is that?11:34
spo0kzActionParsnip, yeah man its frustrating, something is conflicting somwhere11:34
rumpe1spo0kz, afair there are some options with warnings in virtualbox (3d-acceleration, etc.) which maybe cause problems. Try to deactivate as much stuff as possible and try again.11:35
spo0kzrumpe1, tried it all11:35
ActionParsnipspo0kz: try disabling stuff like ACPI and APIC in the vbox config11:36
glebihanm_fulder, it is the "\n" character11:36
rumpe1spo0kz, well... do you think it's a hardware-specific problem?11:36
m_fulderglebihan you mean a simple line break?11:36
spo0kzrumpe1, no, most definitely not11:36
glebihanm_fulder, yes11:37
KcGenesishow to know which software is installed in ubuntu.?software that mostly run from terminal.11:37
m_fulderglebihan cause when I as in the documentation of nullmailer-queue write: senderAddress-ENTER-reciptienist-ENTER-ENTER-message-ENTER .. nothing happends :S11:37
ActionParsnipKcGenesis: how do you mean?11:38
ActionParsnipKcGenesis: you can run all comamnds from terminal, some will just spawn graphical applications11:38
glebihanm_fulder, well I won't be able to help you much more with nullmailer as I've never used it, but why do you want to use it anyway instead of sendmail11:38
glebihanm_fulder, I've been googling a bit on it and nullmailer does seem very php-friendly11:39
glebihandoes *not* seem11:39
KcGenesisActionParsnip, i mean which application doesnot have GUI and doesnot show up in menu .11:40
m_fulderglebihan aha weird :S maybe I should try sendmail instead then11:40
glebihanm_fulder, I would recommend it anyway11:41
m_fulderglebihan btw how can I just unlink nullmailer from sendmail now :P ?11:41
oratedI'm getting following errors on every upgrade, installaion - debconf: unable to initialize frontend: Dialog debconf: (Dialog frontend requires a screen at least 13 lines tall and 31 columns wide.) debconf: falling back to frontend: Readline. What's the reson and how to fix i?11:41
glebihanm_fulder, just delete /usr/sbin/sendmail11:42
ActionParsnipKcGenesis: thats a LOT of commands, what do you want to achieve?11:42
ActionParsniporated: can you give a pastebin of the output of:  lsb_release -a; sudo apt-get update11:42
KcGenesisActionParsnip, i want to know which commands are there to run. or installed11:43
rumpe1KcGenesis, dpkg --get-selections | grep '[^e]install$' | cut -f 1 | less11:44
ActionParsnipKcGenesis: Its very ambiguous dude11:44
spo0kzrumpe1, if vmware and virtualbox are producing the same problem, what on gods earth could that mean to you ?11:44
ActionParsniprumpe1: s/he wants the ones which don't fire a GUI app11:44
glebihanrumpe1, that'll give package names not commands11:45
rumpe1KcGenesis, what problem do you want to solve (effectively) or it this more a theoretical question?11:46
spo0kzrumpe1, could it have been the kernel update that recently came through ?11:46
rumpe1KcGenesis, i really have absolutely no idea, in which situations such a list would be helpful11:47
rumpe1spo0kz, maybe. You could try older kernels, if you have any.11:48
KcGenesisrumpe1, not actually few month ago i installed a security application and i can't remember its name and and i have no idea how find it that why.11:48
glebihanKcGenesis, what was that application doing ?11:49
rumpe1KcGenesis, well... you could search with "apropos <term>"  with word=security or something relevant  ... or "aptitude search <term>", or "apt-cache search <term>"...11:50
=== richard is now known as Guest53740

glebihanKcGenesis, or variant "apt-cache search port | grep scan" "apt-cache search scan | grep port"...11:52
spo0kzrumpe1, well luckily this is all set up on an external hard drive, i use clonezilla but only have a clone of this new kernel update, might try reinstalling ubuntu and see if it still lags idk, seems like alot of work just to play poker11:53

oratedActionParsnip: http://pastebin.com/pNwyrYd6 . I don't see it on update but on upgrades followed by installation11:56
spo0kzrumpe1, yeah clonezilla did that right11:56
spo0kzrumpe1, im running of a restore as i stand11:56
KcGenesisthanks guys it worked..one thing what is difference between "aptitude search<term>" and "apt-cache search"11:56
ActionParsniporated: can youu pastebin the output of:  sudo apt-get upgrade    please11:57
spo0kzbrb commiting suicide11:57
rumpe1KcGenesis, aptitude is a higher level interface to APT than apt-cache, which only queries the cache, but apt-cache is faster.11:58

LABcrabJensit: No worries.  :)  #ubuntu is good if it's not xubuntu-specific, but Xubuntu's been bloaty over the years.12:57

csu010245I have a running printer - works fine with lp - I need to send things directly to it, I assumed I could just send to /dev/lp0 but this is not the case, how do I do it13:38
chrootcameron, there is a one way , find a ubuntu livecd , using it , and reboot your sys , and then fix your grub right13:38
zagibui think (hd0,1) should be correct in your case for sda213:39

silverarrowActionParsnip; worked !!!!14:23
ActionParsniprypervenche: unity desktop which is installed i Ubuntu USES gnome 2, it just has the extra shell. You need a DE to be running to get Unity, the default DE is Gnome 2.x in Natty14:23

silverarrowDans326 : something is definitely messing up14:23
Dans326silverarrow so Ive basically given up on figuring out what she is doing to it and just looking for a quick fix for it. So is there a way to just install everything and then clone the HD to my server  and then later restore using network boot14:24

Somewhere in there, the connections manager 'lost' eth0 (not on the list), and now when the computer boots I need to run 'ifup eth0' manually - works fine from there. This is a box with no keyboard or mouse, so a bit problematic. Any ideas?15:10

edbianAer: well now that doesn't make sense.  Every request for remote desktop will be 'remote desktop to publicIP port 5900' how do you know which computer you'll get to?16:22
iceroot_Aer: you have to to something like 5900 on 5901 on and so on16:22

ActionParsnipJojo__: what video chip do you use?17:04
zykotick9calwig, 8.04 isn't supported any longer17:04
\nBut won't I have to cut out of the windows driver? I think this is what's been causing my problem. You mean nobody's written an open source Ubuntu compatible driver? I think every Acer out there uses Broadcom...17:04
\ltystr: Next time, use aptitude for a full upgrade like that.17:05
doriadeverything that uses opengl seems to be horribly slow on my new 11.04 install. I'm using the nvidia driver that ubuntu recommend I install17:05
\ltystr: Try opening aptitude, and see if it can resolve your dependency problems.17:05
tystr\l: what do you mean? I used apt-get17:05
\ltystr: run "sudo aptitude -u"17:05
zykotick9\l, aptitude isn't included in ubuntu by default!17:05
\ltystr: It has a text user interface.17:05
Slartdoriad: it might be using the nouveaeu driver instead of the nvidia binary driver17:05
\lzykotick9: I assume he uses ubuntu-server, since he's talking about PHP.17:06
ActionParsnipdoriad: can you pastebin the output of:  sudo lshw -C display; lsb_release -a; dpkg -l | grep nvidia17:06
Jojo__ActionParsnip: i have an hd577017:06
doriadSlart, how would I check?17:06
glebihanflametai1, installing libavcodec-extra-52 might help17:06
zykotick9\l, i doubt it's there either...17:06
ActionParsnipJojo__: try uninstalling the ati driver then reinstalling it, often proprietary drivers do not survive release upgrades17:06
Slartdoriad: cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log | more     see if it mentions what driver it is using17:06
Slartdoriad: it should be near the top17:06
tystrIt's nothing I can't fix by downgrading php, but I don't understand why it would upgrade php, but not be able to upgrade, for example, the php5-intl package17:07
\lzykotick9: It is. Of course it's on the server install.17:07
Jojo__ActionParsnip: i'm a little noobish with linux codes and stuff, could you please tell me how?17:07

doriadSlart, http://pastebin.com/5Z0B6xjP17:09
tystri did that before issuing the upgrade command17:09
\ltystr: Yes, same thing. Opening aptitude, does it recommend anything at the bottom to fix the issue?17:09
doriadSlart, I don't see that17:09
\ltystr: It would have a red notice saying "Recommend X keeps" or "X installs" or similar.17:09

Slartdoriad: here's what mine looks like http://paste.ubuntu.com/672559/17:12

Slartdoriad: oh.. wait .. that was my pastebin =)17:14
doriadSlart, in the NVIDIA server settings it says 270.41.0617:14

steinemHi, So I've installed ubuntu and xubuntu previously, and have had the wireless settings working right out of the box. Now, it doesn't even recognize my network card. I have a thinkpad t410 2516-CTO machine. Can anyone help?17:59
glebihansalvatore, ok I think I see where the problem comes from18:01
glebihansalvatore, why did you change the location of the database files ?18:01
salvatorebecause i am trying to move tahta folder on dropbox18:01
salvatoreto share whit other machines18:02
glebihansalvatore, ok then could you check if all files in your data folder are owned by mysql ?18:02
FonRithironghi, how do you give all the resource of your CPU to a specific program?18:03
glebihansalvatore, sudo ls -l /home/sanet/Dropbox/Localhost/database18:03
glebihansalvatore, if there not owned by mysql, you'll have to run "sudo chown mysql:mysql -R /home/sanet/Dropbox/Localhost/database"18:03
h00kFonRithirong: it's not a good idea to give all to a specific program, what are you trying to do?18:04
glebihansalvatore, anyway, you'll also have to edit /etc/apparmor.d/usr.sbin.mysqld in order to allow mysql to access that folder18:04
salvatoreyes i did it18:04
h00k!nice | FonRithirong18:04
ubottuFonRithirong: 'Nice' is a property of a process that determines how willing it is to give CPU time to other processes.  A higher value makes it more likely to give away time.  A negative value makes it less likely. Values are from -19 to 19, with 0 being the default.  For more information, type 'man nice' at a terminal.18:04
glebihansalvatore, editing /etc/apparmor.d/usr.sbin.mysqld ?18:05
steinemHi, So I've installed ubuntu and xubuntu previously, and have had the wireless settings working right out of the box. Now, it doesn't even recognize my network card. I have a thinkpad t410 2516-CTO machine. Can anyone help?18:05
glebihansalvatore, or changing the permissions ?18:05
salvatoreeditin apparmor i mean18:05
glebihansalvatore, ok so did you get to check the permissions ?18:05
sharp66steinem, was it enabled during install?18:06
FonRithirongh00k, trying to run gnuradio/usrp, i'm getting an overrun but my cpu usage is only +10% for it18:06
sharp66steinman, more importantly, is it enabled now?18:06
steinemit is not enabled now18:07
steinemive tried lspci18:07
J466how do i do this ?    b. Add the following line to /etc/profile18:07
J466   export PATH=$PATH:/opt/brcm/hndtools-mipsel-linux/bin/:/opt/brcm/hndtools-mipsel-uclibc/bin/18:07
sharp66steinman, does it show up in ifconfig?18:07
zRomaynteam, i'm having an issue where i cannot delete the /etc/group-, /etc/sghost-, /etc/passwd- files in ubuntu natty narwhal18:08
zRomayni have tried it with sudo rm -v command and just get permission denied18:08
glebihansalvatore, ?18:08
steinemno wlan018:08
TadcrazioI can't export my songs in clementine as m3u, anyone else?18:08
PicizRomayn: Why do you want to delete those files?18:08
salvatoreyes i am pasting the result on pastebin18:08
salvatoreso you can see18:08
steinemeth0 and lo are only enabled18:09
sharp66steinman, is the hardware light on (on the computer)18:09
glebihansalvatore, ok18:09
zRomaynPici  - that's because i assigned myself to the root group and removed myself from the default groups18:09
prowerhello everyone :> i have a netbook that has windows xp and ubuntu on it, but at present the option to boot into windows isn't working...could anyone tell me how i could remove grub as the bootloader?18:09
steinemno it is not18:09
PicizRomayn: That doesn't explain why you would want to remove those files though.18:10
salvatorei am trying to work with 2 pc18:10
glebihansalvatore, run "sudo chown mysql:mysql -R /home/sanet/Dropbox/Localhost/database"18:10
sharp66steinem, can you turn it on with the switch or Fn-F5?18:10
salvatoreSalvatore-pc is windows machine, sanet is Ubuntu18:11
glebihansalvatore, and you want to share the database between them ?18:11
zRomaynPici - it is because those files are locking the files /etc/group, /etc/sghost, and /etc/passwd18:11
steinemsharp66, no i cannot18:11
keyboardtalkHow to create a cron task to execute x amount of time after a reboot?18:11
zRomaynpici - so i cannot assign myself to the default groups18:11
steinemit does not work18:11
glebihansalvatore, you really (I mean really) don't want to do that18:11
PicizRomayn: Are you not using usermod?18:12
steinemsharp66, where is the switch?18:12
salvatorewhy not?18:12
zRomaynpici - yes, i am18:12
sharp66steinem, usually on the edge of the laptop18:12
PicizRomayn: With sudo?18:12
sharp66my t60 and w520 both have it on the front18:12
zykotick9keyboardtalk, to my knowledge "cron" can't schedule based on events like that - I believe it's only time based18:12
glebihansalvatore, because database files should never be shared between several serverse18:12
zRomaynPici - if i try sudo usermode i get the following "romayn is not in the sudoers file.  This incident will be reported"18:13
Matt_799where do i type sudu commands?18:13
steinemsharp it's on18:13
steinemi'm going to try to install the drivers using ndisgtk18:13
glebihansalvatore, plus, from what I've seen you're also trying to sync those files some way, but the correct permissions will never be set that way18:14
PicizRomayn: Is your user not the one that was first created at install time, or has something happened to your group permissions?18:14
glebihansalvatore, the good way to do it would be to configure one of your computers to allow remote access from the other, and use a remote mysql connection18:14
salvatoremmm..i see...i thought that it might have been useful because i work on different machine18:14
zfefreeasinbeeranybody with a macbookpro?18:14
sharp66stienem, was it off?18:14
glebihansalvatore, see my last post18:14
zRomaynPici - yeah, i removed myself from the default groups by playing with the usermod command18:15
thebishopI get "Error: Failed to retrieve share list from server" when connecting to a windows7 shared folder.  How can I debug this?18:15
PicizRomayn: If you boot to the recovery console you should be able to use usermod to put yourself back into groups.18:15
zRomaynPici - so here are the groups that i'm now "uid=1000(romayn) gid=1000(romayn) groups=1000(romayn),0(root)18:15
steinemsharp66, it was not off18:16
zRomaynPici - and how do i boot in recovery console?18:16
salvatoreyes...so i myght set one of my machine as "MASTER" and allow other to connect to www folder  and database?18:16
=== sins-- is now known as sins-
PicizRomayn: Reboot, and press shift while booting to bring up your GRUB menu, then select it from there.18:16
zRomaynPici - will i log in as root or as the user i created during installation?18:17
PicizRomayn: I believe  that should log you in as root.18:17
jerwareWhat file to I put a list of commands I want to execute at startup ?18:17
jerwarelike when a user logs in ?18:17
FreezingColddpkg is still listing packages I already removed with apt-get, how can I update it?18:17
glebihansalvatore, yes that would be an acceptable solution, be careful about security once you allow remote database connections, be sure to correctly configure your firewall18:18
newbie435645Windows 7 is best!18:18
h00knewbie435645: please do not troll in here.18:18
zRomaynPici - aight, gracias, i'll try that to see if i can put myself in the default groups so my sudo command can work again18:18
