nrdbI have no idea... top doesn't tell me02:02
somsipnrdb: is it constantly at 95% or just occasioanlly?02:02
zykotick9somsip, with a load of 30+ it should be steady 100%02:03
somsipzykotick9: sounds like you know what you're doing wih this, whereas I was tenatively asking. I'll leave it with you02:04
nrdbsomsip, it yesterday it did the same thing and a reset fixed it... it seems to run fine for a long time and then just bog down.. once it does it just stays bogged down.02:04
zykotick9somsip, oh i don't have any suggestions for nrdb... so you go ahead ;)  but load 30 means the CPU is 30x over it's max (basically)02:05
nrdbzykes-, somsip, last uptime = "load average: 7.10, 50.57, 51.09"02:07
somsipnrdb: anyexcessive processes in ps -aux?02:07
zykotick9somsip, "ps -aux" is actually incorrect, you'll get an error at the top, it's "ps aux"02:07

somsipnrdb: and is load still high or has it setled down?02:16
zykotick9IdleOne, i think the "time" campee is using is some sort of built-in, vs /usr/bin/time which gives different style output?  Do that give you any ideas?02:16
IdleOnezykotick9: none :/02:16
campeethis worked for me: bash -c "time ls" 2>time.output02:17

itaylor57campee, also time -o file ls should work02:18
nrdbzykotick9, somsip, still very high (don't know what), my load graph show that its peaked at about 80... before that less than 102:18
zykotick9itaylor57, tab fail & that doesn't exactly work unless you use "/usr/bin/time -o ..." which is different from time02:18

nac-godfatherit's actually the best method, rather than wiping out native bootloaders for each os02:59
olabazurlin2u, wouldn't it be easier to just install it using the commands?02:59
gugugaganothing will crash cos you just download the file and you need to burn it into a disk in order to use it03:00
urlin2uolabaz, if the repo is open and it shows03:00
gugugagaeven if the connection drop you can continue the next day the download will resume03:00
nac-godfatheryeah, figure that part out and learn how to burn an iso, then come back and ask questions before installing.03:00
urlin2ukingofswords, you also have a grub legacy file in your grub2 set up.  /boot/grub/menu.lst03:00

amh345oh better yet, what user executes the cron03:02
usr13amh345: Ask your system administrator, he should know.03:03
kingofswordsurlin2u,  my point was ubuntu isnt easy for not pc programmer type ppl to use03:03
nac-godfatherunless your willing to just install to a separate hd, or separate computer, don't come here bitchin' cause you don't understand the process, especially when people are willing to go out of their way to walk you through it and not explain every detail.03:03
olabazgugugaga but doesn't ubuntu download the files before installing them? It was during the upgrade of one of the packages that it crashed03:03
amh345i am the friggin system admin. im testing something03:03

gugugagaolabaz dont use the update manager to upgrade your ubuntu , download the iso file03:04
nac-godfathernot unless you use apt-get cache or whatever it is.  You could check your dpkg cache directory to see if it's there, but probably not.03:04

olabazgugugaga is there a difference?03:04
olabazurlin2u, hmm i've enabled all of them and it's not showing03:05

karmstyou can't select anything in the menu03:35
karmsteven cancel doesn't work03:35
karmstyou have to hard re-ipl the system03:35
urlin2ukarmst, you have a raid so it may be just putting grub in a  Ubuntu partition then loading grub to the bootpartition from a live cd not sure really.03:36
karmstwell the cd would be /dev/cdb or somethhing03:37
karmstnot /dev/sda03:37
karmstwhich would be a scsi device03:37

f15hyI hope this is the right room to help. Im a complete and total novice installing Ubuntu for the first time on an older PC. After installing and first boot, my screen goes to the Ubuntu loading screen (logo is in the middle and dots are under it) and nothing happins. I've installed via ISO DVD dozens of times trying to fix this, and have been lurking on forums all day. the only thing close to the problem im having that i can find is the "black scr05:09
theadminf15hy: You shouldn't burn the Ubuntu ISO to a DVD, you should use a CD instead, also burn at a very low speed05:10
theadminf15hy: That's all I can get at so far05:10
urlin2uf15hy, choose the recovery and failsafe at the next gui, get in update/upgrade, and look in additional drivers for any offered05:11

IdleOneasher^: from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SIGUSR1_and_SIGUSR2  "sending the Apache HTTP Server a USR1, will ask the server to stop allowing new connections, wait for the current ones to die, reread the config files, re-open its log files, and restart the server, allowing for relatively smooth in-production changes." I imagine SIGUSR2 would act the same.06:32
FarisOk  I'll try it06:33
rumpe1asher^, depends on the process, which has to implement it's handling in some way. There's no default behaviour.06:33

rumpe1naked89, if you added the ppa and undated your sources-list, you can pin the version in the package-management to the ppa version. Maybe package-management is conservative and takes per default the one, which already is in the default repository.07:01

HyperbyteGood..... luck, too late. :)07:14
wh1zz0I recently re-installed natty after my previous oneneric install didn't work out well.. Upon my natty installation my hibernate started working perfectly BUT just yesterday the same error I had when I first installed natty started again..I use Dell Vostro 1310, Ubuntu Natty..Please has anyone found a workaround for this because google has proved not to be my friend for now.. :(07:15
geirhaIdleOne: I was a bit too slow, but the problem was probably that the package is called transmission-gtk, not transmission.07:15

Hyperbytegroktar, okay, now what can ping what? :)07:17
HyperbyteYou called them A/B/C before, they're called differently here.07:17
groktareverything can ping everything else except router 2 to computer 207:18
HyperbyteRun 'ip route show' on router 2 and pastebin.07:18
groktari should also mention that router2 is also listening on and has this iptable: /sbin/iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -d -i eth0 -j DNAT --to-destination #as107:19
HyperbyteThat means any packets with destination get intercepted by iptables.  As long as you're not pinging it won't affect.07:19
Hyperbytegroktar, use pastebin.  This one requires username/password.07:20
Hyperbytegroktar, why does it say 'src' in there?  And 'src' ?07:21
HyperbyteThose aren't the IP addresses of router 2 are they?07:21
HyperbyteAccording to your diagram, those should be and respectively.07:22
groktar192.168.1.237 was a typo, the is correct07:23
HyperbyteElse the ping from router 2 to computer 2 gets sent with IP address  Even if router 2's kernel configuration allows that, and the packet goes out, it won't come back to router 2.07:23
groktarit's listening on both and
groktari was going to try to setup a second router with keepalived07:24
groktarso would be a virtual ip, and a third router would take over if the first died07:24
HyperbyteAre and seperate network cards?07:24
groktarsame one07:24
groktarand computer 2 can ping both and
DroidAgentIs there an Ubuntu server image that can fetch packages from the net instead of needing a CD?07:25
HyperbyteCan router 2 ping all of it's own addresses?07:25
=== mang0|zzz is now known as mang0
Hyperbytegroktar, no idea then.  Theorethically this should work I think.  Try disabling the alias, and restore your IP route to say, see if that changes things.  If it doesn't, kill your iptables firewall, see if that changes things.07:27
groktarkk, will do07:27
FlannelDroidAgent: During install? or what?07:27
HyperbyteEither way, I'd look for the problems in the routing area of router 2.  Perhaps there's some ip rule that's making it difficult?  You can check this with 'ip rule show'07:28
DroidAgentFlannel: yes... problem is, I have a bootable USB stick but it insists on wanting a CDROM.07:28
Hyperbytegroktar, either way, I'm off to work now. :-)07:28
FlannelDroidAgent: Get the mini iso, it downloads packages from the net07:28
Flannel!mini | DroidAgent07:28
ubottuDroidAgent: The Minimal CD image is very small in size, and it downloads most packages from the Internet during installation, allowing you to select only those you want (the installer is like the one on the !Alternate CD). See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/MinimalCD07:28
DroidAgentFlannel: ahh that sounds great... is there one for Server though?07:29
hoobydoobyhello ubuntu!07:30
FlannelDroidAgent: The mini iso, having no packages on it, can install a GUI-less system as well as a regular desktop.  One of the F keys on the boot menu (they change it, I don't remember what it is now) will allow you to install a text-only system07:30

gourmorning...i'm not using ubuntu (atm i run freebsd), but in a few days i'd like to install ubuntu on my friend's netbook - lenovo with ati hd6310 graphic. here (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RadeonDriver) i see the following: "These cards should work with Ubuntu Natty/11.04, however you will need a more recent version of Mesa (7.11.x) than Natty's default (7.10.x) to get 3D acceleration. " what does it09:42
gourmean in practice?09:42
abhishekbwhenever i switch to unity2d half of my taskbar remains white and close min. max. buttons disapperar from it wat to do ?09:42
rhin0means you have to get a proprietary driver gour --- you will find it on the ati website mayb e09:43
theadminMerley: Consider Xubuntu. It's great, and Xfce feels a lot like Gnome209:43
max9aiPlease, I need this answer, google doesn't help.09:43
urlin2uabhishekb, have you tweaked compiz?09:43
caseyis there any reason why the shortcut "Super+A" would not be working for me on a fresh install of Natty?09:43
rhin0or through system > preferences > additional driuvers  gour after updating the system09:44
gourrhin0: so, no luck with open-source driver?09:44
urlin2ushould be applications gour09:44
rhin0gour quite often the proprietary driver is up to date it says from what you said there is a drive r-- jsut get it09:44
urlin2uabhishekb, whats you goal with compiz09:44
rhin0is more up to date09:44
theadmincasey: Compiz not running?09:44
Merleytheadmin: All I wanted was to remove the flashy stuff.. and I ended up breaking stuff. ;)09:44
rhin0depends on the manufacturer09:44
caseytheadmin: Compiz is up and running.09:44
doritoDancasey: Yeah, I'm trying to SU09:45
rhin0so yuo've been deleting thints merley09:45
theadminMerley: Well, xfce isn't flashy :D09:45
gourrhin0: well, i'd prefer open-source driver...i also avoid propr. ones09:45
Ollehcasey, i have no idea what "Super+A" is supposed to do. Maybe it was a custom keyboard mapping that you had setup somehow. Use System>Preferences>Keyboard Shortcuts to remap it.09:45
doritoDaner, sudo09:45
theadmincasey: Install and open ccsm, and see the shortcuts there09:45
doritoDanAre you saying the $ is unecessary?09:45
theadmindoritoDan: Normally isn't09:45
rhin0gour - the manufacturer may on occasion be able to supply a more advanced driver (particularly for desktop effects / 3d effects)09:45
theadmindoritoDan: $ is for variables, like $HOME or $USER09:46
gourrhin0: yeah. i'ma aware of it. my friend (she) wants to enjoy wathing movies as well09:46
caseytheadmin: I already have ccsm. Where are the shortcuts listed? BTW, this shortcut should come default on unity. It's to open the Applications lens of the dash.09:46
Merleyrhin0: Apparently I have. :s Was trying to activate metacity and something went wrong. :)09:47
rhin0just google for the driver / source09:47
theadmincasey: Oh... I don't know anything about Unity09:47
caseyOlleh: I can't follow your path. I'm on natty. Where should i go if i'm on unity?09:47
caseytheadmin: darn. Any ideas where shortcuts are normally stored on any ubuntu models?09:47
Ollehive got no idea about unity either. when gnome went that direction, i installed Debian.09:48
doritoDantheadmin: Well, why is this guide asking me to put  $ before my sudo then?09:48
doritoDanI don't understand what it's for. :-/09:48
theadmindoritoDan: $ normally indicates the $PS109:48
caseydorritoDan: In other words. The "$" is done for you :).09:48
Caciquehmm '-'09:48
gouranother question: what do you think about unity vs. gnome-3 for (ex.) window user? what's easier?09:48
theadmindoritoDan: Like the prompt, you have something like "username@ubuntu:~$ " in front of the place where your commands are typed09:48
OllehdoritoDan: if you look at your command prompt (as a normal user) it will end in a $ to indicate thats where you start typing.09:48
theadmingour: KDE.09:48
doritoDanYeah, I understand that the prefix is automated.09:49
doritoDanI'm just wondering what it's for. :)09:49
caseydorritoDan: So no need to retype it again :).09:49
gourtheadmin: for me kde is too bloated...never tried gnome-3 and i use xfce09:49
RudyValenciaIt's to let you know what user, server, and user type you are.09:49
caseydorritoDan: Oh ok. Out of my realm of knowledge.09:49
Olleh$ = normal user, # = root. its just a visual indicator09:49
doritoDanAh, ok.09:49
RudyValenciaer, user, system, and user type.09:49
doritoDanWhat I'm trying to do is install Unity 2D onto an Ubuntu virtualization.09:49
theadmingour: Well, I use Xfce as well, but for Windows users KDE is the simpliest option09:49
doritoDanCouldn't get it to work though - it couldn't find certain files.09:50
caseyis there any reason why the shortcut "Super+A" or "Super+F"  would not be working for me on a fresh install of Natty? Any answers on this? Even guesses will help.09:50
theadmingour: XFCE is good too if configured properly09:50
doritoDanIs there a Unity channel?09:50
bittin_doritoDan: #ayatana09:50
theadminOlleh: Heh, with my modifications it's "+" for normal user and "!!!" for root :D09:50
theadminOlleh: But yeah, normally that's so09:50
Ollehhaha cool. i like the exclamation marks warning you not to be stupid with commands :D09:50

th0rcmr: ok10:49
jribzth: weird, but you can try downgrading them if you want10:49

zthjrib, how do i do that?10:49
jribzth: apt-get install package=version10:50

xanderHi everyone, I can't update my system because download of one update archive gets stalled midway.12:11
xanderThe offending file is http://ppa.launchpad.net/ubuntu-x-swat/x-updates/ubuntu/pool/main/n/nvidia-graphics-drivers/nvidia-current_280.13-0ubuntu1~maverick~xup1_amd64.deb12:12
abhishekpathakxander: what is the error msg you are getting12:12
jjpHi !12:12
xanderI've tried manually with wget and axel but no luck with either12:12
xanderThe error I get is "Connection failed"12:12
abhishekpathakxander: what is the error msg you are getting12:12
xander"Please check your internet connection"12:13
abhishekpathakxander: are you able to download the other packages?12:13
jjpDoes anyone know which script or binary actually decide to force a fsck after a certain period or a certain number of mount operations without being checked ?12:13
xanderEven axel gives up on this archive.12:13
abhishekpathakyou can choose to install selected packages only12:14
makarahi. i want to install LibreOffice on 10.04 so that it gets the updates. What to do?12:14
abhishekpathakdo you use the update manager or apt-get?12:14
xanderabhishekpathak: Already doing that.12:14
xanderabhishekpathak: Update manager, apt-get, all of 'em12:14
Picinoid: stop that12:14
FloodBot1noid: Please don't flood; use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste; don't use Enter as punctuation.12:14
abhishekpathakxander: so just update all the other packages and leave this offending package alone12:14
xanderabhishekpathak: Even a wget on that file in a terminal atalls midway through the download.12:15
abhishekpathakit is most probably experiencing some problems with the ppa maintainers part12:15
xanderI can update my system but unfortunately that package is the latest nVIDIA driver, which is a crucial part of the update...12:15
pacsDo you guys know where I can get support about Java? (Java Web Start, most specifically)12:15
abhishekpathakeven update manager will use wget internally if its not in the debian repos as in a ppa12:15
Picipacs: did you read what I said for you to do earlier?12:16
abhishekpathakxander: register a bug report complaining about this to the ppa maintainer12:16
bazhangabhishekpathak, ubuntu repos you mean, I suppose12:16
xanderThat's what troubles me. Why should wget or even axel stall midway on a package?12:16
abhishekpathakxander: you can always get other versions of nvidia and noveau drivers for the time being12:17
abhishekpathakxander: maybe the server handling the ppa is refusing persistent connections12:17
xanderAnyone here can test download this package to see if it is not a connection problem at my ISP or somehing?12:17
Picixander: I'm not having any issues downloading that here.12:17
abhishekpathakxander: or maybe the problem is from your network12:17
xanderPici: You've got the *whole* ~55 MB thing?12:17

Iamalinuxn00bWhat is a swap partition used for and how big should it be_12:19
abhishekpathakIamalinuxn00b: swap functions as a RAM backup on the hard disk12:20
bazhang!swap | Iamalinuxn00b12:20
ubottuIamalinuxn00b: swap is used to move unused programs and data out of main memory to make your system faster. It can also be used as extra memory if you don't have enough. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SwapFaq for more info12:20
abhishekpathakIamalinuxn00b:  recommended swap : twice of ram12:20
abhishekpathakIamalinuxn00b: however if you have 4 gigs of RAM and do not use heavy softwares,there really is no need to swap12:21
elfranneIamalinuxn00b, swap partition = pagefile.sys file on windows , also called virtual memory12:22
Iamalinuxn00babhishekpathak: I actually have 3GB of RAM. How big should it in that case?12:22
Iamalinuxn00bBecause 6GB of a swap partition seems huge.12:22
abhishekpathakIamalinuxn00b:  do you use any heavy software which eats a lot of RAM?12:22
abhishekpathakIamalinuxn00b: allot 1-2 GB to swap at max12:23
xanderPici: I didn't receive any link yet...12:23
Picixander: I pmed it to you. Check your other windows.12:23
elfranneIamalinuxn00b, unless you plan to use very big file, like Video Editing and Iamge editing you don t need a lot12:23
abhishekpathakxander:  lol.wierd situation you are in.12:23

elfranneabout Swap : I got a server with 36GB ram so it asked for 72GB swap ... a bit overkill :p12:26
Picielfranne: swap should only be more than ram if you plan to hibernate or if you have a low amount of ram.12:26
abhishekpathakelfranne:  lol.The icing on the cake would be to run nested joins on mysql on that involving tables of 10^6 or more12:26
Ollehi use 100meg swap on my 4gig machine. Swap should be used as an emergency buffer so linux dont go crazy OOM killing stuff if you max out your memory. It shouldn't be used as an extension of RAM.12:27
abhishekpathakOlleh:  yeah,the swap=2XRAM rule used to be applicable in 1 GB Ram days....12:28
elfrannePici, on server it can saves from crashing when you got bad coders12:28
Ollehyeah, that rule is now obsolete.12:28

aniHi,I am using Ubuntu 10.04,and trying to run iReport sh file from terminal.and getting "java.awt.HeadlessException".12:56
cmriceroot_, those are less of a problem. soon, I won't have physical access to the system. shutting down the system would thus be idiotic. I _might_ get caught in a moment and try to reboot the machine from remote though, and this box has the peculiarity that it will lock up soon after rebooting.12:56
aniHow could I solve this?12:56
rumpe1ubuntu_, you can also use existing (free) partitions for ubuntu12:57

iceroot_cmr: you see, your idea is useless13:02

rix1234 How to enable a smart card on linux. i am using Aladdin etoken 72K, can anyone plz help me...13:04
cmriceroot_, of course, I can't cover every case, just enough to make me realize the mistake of rebooting the machine. I think I know what I'll do instead. binaries in /usr/local/bin will override those in /usr/bin, right? so I'll make shell scripts in there for reboot and restart, that tell me to don't reboot the machine.13:04
iceroot_cmr: ....13:05
iceroot_cmr: no13:05

iceroot_cmr: why do you need a root-shell?13:07
Picicmr: Just avoid using sudo when you don't need to.13:07
iceroot_cmr: again! (and the last time) think about the role-concept instead of patching some scripts13:07

ubottucmr: sudo is a command to run command-line programs with superuser privileges ("root") (also see !cli). Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo for more information. For graphical applications see !gksu (GNOME, Xfce), or !kdesudo (KDE). If you're unable to execute commands with sudo see: http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/fixsudo13:09
pinoyoragonWhere should i start looking into if my box(11.04) does not display anything after the grub splash during boot. But after i restarted the machine for 3-5 times, then it goes back to normal.13:09

nstridesoutanyone used ettercap before?14:52
jasonmsphey all.  I have the launcher set to autohide in compiz config manager but it seems to want to stay visible.  Is there a way to determine who the culprit is that is making it fail?14:52
contrastBluesKaj: weird... i'm 99% sure dvi is strictly video-only, so if that's the only connection it has, i don't get why it's claiming audio capabilities... yup, still a kde man. i just wandered in here because of the non-kde-related dep-hell i got myself into.14:52

nstridesoutmy software center is not working. any help?14:54
BluesKajyes contrast dvi is video only but the other end of the cable is hdmi , so the soundcard sees it as hdmi14:54
kingofswordscontrast, do i just put # in front of ones i dont want listed?14:54
contrastkingofswords: nope, you should never edit grub.cfg directly; it gets generated by the options you set in /etc/default/grub14:55
kingofswordscontrast, ok..so did that last entry put windows as default os?14:55
contrastkingofswords: did you want to keep ubuntu as the default os?14:55

alecatI have installed ubuntu 10.10 on a macbook. It's a standalone install, no more mac osx ! It works quite well except a veeeeeery long boot time. What can i do ?14:57
contrastkingofswords: ahh, ok... you can disregard that last bit then... so to get rid of the recovery option: sudo sed -i -e s/'#GRUB_DISABLE_RECOVERY'/'GRUB_DISABLE_RECOVERY'/ /etc/default/grub14:58
BluesKajcontrast , this my audio devices list in phonon http://imagebin.org/16960614:59
contrastkingofswords: then to get rid of memtest: sudo apt-get remove --purge memtest86+14:59
kingofswordscontrast, is it bad idea to get rid of mem test?15:00
contrastBluesKaj: ^_^ that's a lot of devices15:00
contrastkingofswords: getting rid of it won't break anything... and on the occasion you would actually need to test your memory, you can just reinstall it or run it from the live cd15:01
kingofswordsah ok cool....thx15:02
BluesKajkingofswords, memtest is rather necessary and it doesn't use resources until called by you15:02
nonentI'm having a weird network problem since I upgraded from hardy LTS to lucid LTS.   i've got a network card with two ports, one local ip, one external ip, and for some reason, network replies switch ports after x seconds, and then switch back later. (ie, internal port starts getting stuff from external ip and vice versa)15:03
contrastBluesKaj: necessary how? (he's trying to clean up his boot menu) ... uninstalling it has been once of the first things i do on a clean install for years and i've seen no ill effects from it.15:03
kingofswordsBluesKaj, isnt memtest on livcd?15:03
BluesKajcontrast, yeah, there's alot of duplication there but I haven't bothered changing the list15:03
nonentany ideas where to look?  if i run a continuous arping on the external dev advertising the external ip, everything works, but as soon as it stops, the port starts cycling back and forth again15:04

rumpe1sanesto123, won't work, if you switch from 32bit to 64bit or vice versa e.g. and maybe you need to reconfigure graphic card drivers15:12
aeon-ltdLint: yes, don't use compiz, don't use unity, don't use gnome, do those you lose about 200mb on any other DE than KDE15:12
ikonia-remotepeekaie: totally15:12
usr13peekaie: As long as the gateway is there and in the subnet15:12
aeon-ltdLint: use just a WM you can easily get <60mb ram usage at boot15:12

ikonia-remoteLint: you have to work within the limitations of your machine, if the desktop you want takes up 2GB or ram, and you have 512, you have to accept that's not going to work15:14

luigiRoasted: Oh, I know a utility for that. Remastersys15:51
Roastedluigi, shortcuts to network shares on every desktop by setting the default profile, specific printer settings and installation, etc.15:51
Roastedluigi, well that just creates a custom ISO, right?15:51
alex--luigi: Like the timezone screen is15:51
Roastedluigi, I was hoping to bypass that and automate the installation to these systems. After all, we're talking a potential of thousands of systems here.15:51
luigiRoasted: Yes, and that custom ISO is a perfect snapshot of the system you run it on.15:51
Roastedluigi, I'd rather be able to do them in batches of 30 over the network instead of using a custom ISO for each. individual. system. :(15:51
luigiRoasted: The automation happens with a preseed and PXE.15:51
contrasti don't have software center installed atm; does anyone know if it has a history feature like synaptic?15:51
Roastedluigi, oh so I dont just burn the ISO to a CD or whatever?15:52
user_564Can anyone help me pleeeease?15:52
jribuser_564: best to just ask the channel your actual question (on a single line)15:52
luigiRoasted: No. You make the remastersys ISO, tweak it with debian-preseed so the installer runs automatically, then set up a PXE server to host that image. Have the clients boot from PXE, install the remastersys env, and you're all set.15:53
Roastedluigi, this is making my head spin. Do you have a guide for something like this?15:53
luigialex--: Write the code for it, then.15:53
Roastedluigi, the only "pxe server" I've set up was FOG, whcih is pretty automated.15:53

luigiRoasted: These three guides should help. http://www.debian-administration.org/articles/478 (For setting up PXE.) http://www.ubuntugeek.com/creating-custom-ubuntu-live-cd-with-remastersys.html (For making the remastersys image) http://d-i.alioth.debian.org/tmp/en.i386/apb.html (For preseed set up)15:55
Roastedluigi, I wonder if I can set these up in tandem with my FOG server, which is already on Ubuntu 10.04.15:56
alex--Roasted: i can give idea's15:56
alex--Is there btw any way to customize Unity?15:56
Roastedluigi, it'd be nice ifmy image ideas ran in dual mode - FOG + Preseed.15:56
Myrttialex--: this isn't really a place for them, if you want that feedback to be heard then please file it to Launchpad15:56
user_564What else could it be?15:56
ikonia-remotealex--: define customise15:56
alex--ikonia-remote: place it in bottom or hide some bars15:56
luigiRoasted: I would scrap FOG at the moment and follow the guides here that work. :P I have no experience with fog, so I can't really help you there. I do have experience with those other three, however.15:57
alex--or place upper bar in left down corner15:57
luigiRoasted: Honestly though, automated clonezilla installs would work too.15:57
Roastedluigi, eh. I <3 fog. since we're a dual environment I'll still need FOG for windows. it'd just be nice if I could do this from the same server.15:57
contrastuser_564: to see if a package is installed: "apt-cache policy <package>" (that shows the availble versions and which, if any, are installed) or "dpkg --get-selections | grep <package>"15:57
Roastedluigi, via CZ server?15:57
luigiRoasted: I don't know, I've only used CZ manually before.15:57
user_564sun-java6-plugin is installed to latest version!15:58
luigiRoasted: What you're trying to do is similar to deploying an automated install over network. Those guides are how it's typically done. If you want to use FOG for this, go ahead, but don't expect much help. ;)15:58
contrastalex--: i think i saw an article for a unity customization program on http://omgubuntu.co.uk , you might have a look on there15:58
Roastedluigi, well FOG has a "linux" option, but it's just being a brat. FOG is easily the best. thing. ever. for imaging Windows systems. I was just hoping to utilize the same app for it.15:59
Roastedluigi, but if I can do the job with another alternative, I'll do it.15:59
luigiRoasted: Best of luck =D15:59
R-088Hello Ubuntu channels15:59
user_564I get this error: flashplugin-nonfree : Depends: flashplugin-installer but it is not going to be installed.15:59
iamahamGreetings anyone know what would cause lpr -o Options to no longer work, but they work fine under Windows when selecting them? namely punch and staple15:59
Roastedluigi, ultimately, I could PXE boot systems on a local LAN and thereby crash them and have the system plop this custom image/ISO on the systems in question, right?15:59
Roastedluigi, I just want to make sure what you're suggesting will do exactly what I need. :P15:59
luigiRoasted: "crash" them?16:00
Roastedluigi, well, when I use FOG, it over-writes whatever is on the HDD and puts my image over top of it.16:00
CarlFKwhats the device name of a 2nd audio device output?16:00
Roastedluigi, these systems have XP on them currently.16:00
Roastedluigi, when I do this I want XP to be written over with this Ubuntu image I'm setting up16:00
contrastuser_564: now *there* is some useful output. which release of ubuntu are you on?16:00
=== iamaham1 is now known as iamaham
luigiRoasted: You'll PXE boot the systems, and they'll install an exact copy of the remastersys environment by wiping the hard drive first *if* you set that option in the debian installer.16:00
iamahamany tips16:01
user_564Ubuntu 10.1016:01
Roastedluigi, I see. so it sounds like it'll work in a similar fashion. I'll keep reading and use my laptop as a guinea pig for this test setup. thanks a lot bro.16:01
luigiRoasted: Basically, you run the debian installer once with the options you want all the other systems yo use.16:01
luigiRoasted: No problem. Good luck!16:01
R-088If anyone here is familiar with DNS and ubuntu server I have a few questions.16:02

usr13user_564: sudo apt-get -f install16:02
iamahamOutput1 being the finisher that does the punch/stapling16:03
luigiR-088: I am. Go ahead and ask.16:03
luigiR-088: Though you may want to ask in #ubuntu-server16:03
usr13user_564: Or, you can go to the software-center and install Adobe Flashplayer 1016:03
user_564Did sudo apt-get -f install (No upgrade)16:03

contrastthe thing is, chrome uses its own version of flashplugin, so it shouldn't be affected by the seperate flashplugin package regardless16:05
bluelampi have a question regarding self resetting permissions .. even logged in as root, i am unable to "have sufficient access" to alter file permissions "16:06
user_564I have Adobe Flashplayer 10 Installed16:06

bluelampany takers ?16:07

luigiR-088: What's the ouput of "nslookup <your domain name>"?16:07
contrastuser_564: have you tried moving your chrome user data folder and seeing how it does with a clean profile? (you should have a folder like ~/.chrome, ~/.google/chrome, ~/.config/chrome or ~/.config/google/chrome - try renaming it to chrome-OLD)16:08

dhenson714got a pretty simple issue if anyone's free to help out. i need a bit of advice on wireless connectivity, but i can't find anyone else who's had the same issue16:09
user_564I delete all the data in those folders but still the same...Should I try renaming it still?16:09
yang_Or someone who dumped a lib to source code level based on ubuntu? I need some help.16:09
luigidhenson714: Just go ahead and ask!16:10
dhenson714my internet typically doesnt connect unless my computer charger is plugged in. ever heard about this happening?16:10
contrastuser_564: if you already tried deleting it and got the same problem on a clean chrome profile, then no16:10
jpmhI set up two accounts - the nm-applet shows in one and not the other - why and how do I get it to show in both16:11
contrastdhenson714: not particularly, though i've known of certain bioses switching off the wireless until it's actually called for when running on the battery (to preserve power)16:11
user_564It must be something I deleted...It's works fine only untill I view certain pagegs16:11
dhenson714see, i got a battery power applet that has a bunch of battery usage settings, and i think that might be it. i had to when i upgraded to natty, but i dont care for the applet itself16:12
bluelampdhenson714, sounds like a hardware issue. as in, your hardware has an issue. insufficient power can cause week radio strengths .16:12
contrastdhenson714: you might [very carefully] check in your bios settings to see if there's any way to disable that16:12
dhenson714it's fine when i unplug it though16:12
dhenson714it just has to be plugged in to connect initially16:12
user_564Google Chrome and Chromium stalls at the same pages16:12
yang_I want to dump libcurl from a lib to source code level, to use it. But after that, it could not work.16:12
heloanyone know why there's no /usr/arm-linux-gnueabi/lib/crt0.o, only crt1.o?16:13
contrastuser_564: just so people don't misunderstand you (as i did), you may want to start saying "uninstalled" instead of "deleted" ;)16:13
bluelampok, so byting radio issues is easy whole root file permissions is difficult ?16:13
heloi'm compiling this package that is failing to link because of crt0.o16:13
ActionParsnipuser_564: depends on the build you are using16:13
dhenson714i'll check the bios, but i honestly didnt think this was anything more than a weird fluke. thanks for your help, guys!16:13
contrasthelo: have you tried searching for that file with apt-file?16:13
bluelampi have a question regarding permissions .. even logged in as root, i am unable to "have sufficient access" to alter file permissions "16:13
yang_I think that could be the config file's problem. but i don't know which one to use.16:13
helocontrast: yes16:13
jribbluelamp: be more specific16:14
helocontrast: there's no gnueabi version of crt0.o... only crt1.o16:14
ActionParsnipbluelamp: is the partition NTFS based?16:14
javier_hi! someone knows how to automatically download cover art in Banshee 2.0 (ubuntu 11.04)? thanks!16:15
contrasthelo: sounds like the makefile is looking for an outdated version of that library. you *could* try downloading the package for the older version of the library from packages.ubuntu.com and seeing if you're able to install it on your current version, though this could wreck havoc...16:15
contrasthelo: what are you trying to compile?16:16
bluelampok. the file systems that i am having problems with are ntfs and fat32. i keep eveyrthing on these partitions so that should i have to re-install, the main partition does not hold any important files of my own. this is a habbit from using windows ... protecting my files from MS's mandatory system failure feature.

bluelampi have not attemtped changing these settings on the system partition16:17
CitizenwarriorOk I have used all my GoogleFu, the best link I can provide to show a simple example is this h**p://tinyurl.com/3qgyurs from a backtrack-linux.org post.  What I want to know is this, If I create an encrypted install of Ubuntu on a laptop with /boot on a USB drive so that is acts as a "ignition key" for my computer can I then store other items on that same USB drive?16:17
contrastuser_564: sorry, but i'm pretty much at a loss... you might post your issue on the forums (with all relevant details) and see if anyone there can figure out what's wrong16:17
contrastCitizenwarrior: i can't see why not16:18
ActionParsnipblueamp: you cannot change permissions on WIndows partitions, they are too primitive to hold Linux permissions. Instead you set the access when you mount it16:18
user_564No other thing...When I plug in my external USB drive I have to wait around 5min or maybe 30min before it popsup. In Windows it works fine...NTFS partition16:18
bluelampActionParsnip, thanks, what can i do to fix this ?16:19
contrastCitizenwarrior: i would probably make a seperate partition for /boot on there though16:19
ActionParsnipblueamp: when you mount it, set the access you desire16:19
bluelampActionParsnip, when i mount them, i do not see an option for permision granting16:19
user_564It's a HDD16:19
helocontrast: qt3-embedded for arm16:19
bsdfoxI just got a PC setup with 11.04 and the radeon driver has much better full screen performance (looks good..) vs the fglrx driver but the desktop runs really smooth with fglrx16:20
bsdfoxanyone got advice on settings I should check?16:20
Citizenwarriorcontrast does the /boot have to be the first thing installed on that drive or can I use a drive that already has shit on it also on your second point would i have to take any special steps to make a system pick the right partition to boot from16:20
=== addisonj_ is now known as addisonj
bluelampperhaps it is a command line feature not easily obtained by a Graphic file manager16:21
LintActionParsnip, surely you meant the other way16:21
ActionParsnipblueamp: then you will need to use cli or add it in fstab to set the options16:21
ActionParsniplint: what other way?16:21
contrastCitizenwarrior: shouldn't matter about the order, as the boot loader gets installed to the drive's mbr, not a particular partition16:21
maya_so many people here16:22
maya_any chinese?16:22
ikonia-remote!cn | maya_16:22
ubottumaya_: 如欲獲得中文的協助,請輸入 /join #ubuntu-cn 或 /join #ubuntu-tw16:22
contrastCitizenwarrior: so you would run the grub-install command and when it prompts you, point it to /dev/sdb (or whatever drive it is), not /dev/sdb116:22
contrastCitizenwarrior: of course, you would want to do that *after* creating a new partition where /boot would be stored, ~100MB should be a safe size16:23
bluelampActionParsnip, here is an issue though. i have a installer for CaRMetal . it copy it to an 8gig SD and put the card in my asus eee pc  running xandros linux. the file will not execute. what file system would be good for my 8gig SD card that both versions of linux will find easy to handle ?16:23
bluelampActionParsnip, this way, i can evade the major portion of this permission issue :)16:23
ActionParsnipbluelamp: how is that relasted to Ubuntu?16:24
bluelampubuntu is my main system. the asus eee pc  is a system i use at work in my free time there16:24
contrastgotta go... peace and good luck, everyone16:24
ActionParsnipbluelamp: if you use it in both Ubuntu and Xandros, make it Ext2 based and it will be able to hold Linux file permissions16:25
bluelampActionParsnip, perhaps i should be more clear. what linux file system is good for older and lesser variants of linux.16:25
Citizenwarrior contrast thanks your covering all my questions... ok so I have a 32g pico drive in the mail, I am ramping up for a technology swap/upgrade however I am a few weeks out, if I take the new drive, make a 150mb partition for /boot to live on when I by my new system, then I can start loading the other partition with whatever I want.  Is my thinking right?16:25
ActionParsnipbluelamp: they will all access ext2 and ext3 just fine16:25
bluelampActionParsnip, thanks, you have been helpful . :)16:25

Lintext2 is useless, being in permanent corruptrd state16:26
Lintext3 should work16:27
bluelampActionParsnip, am i correct in identifying the number as a version indicator and considering ext3 to be an improvement over ext2 thus choosing the later ?16:27
ActionParsnipbluelamp: ext3 is simply ext2 with a journal16:27
bluelampActionParsnip, thank you16:28
* bluelamp leaves16:28
ActionParsnipbluelamp: the journal gets written to a lot and helps maintain file consistency as well as prevent fragmentation. It will reduce the lifespan of a flash based storage16:28
bluelampActionParsnip, good. ext 2 is the better choice :)16:29
ActionParsnipboth have advantages16:29

tensorpuddingbsdfox: open the file in the archive manager16:56

tensorpuddingbsdfox: there should be directories in there, showing the paths that files will be installed to16:57
padhuPici: try anacron16:57
tensorpuddingbsdfox: ignore the DEBIAN directory though, that's packaging information16:57
Picipadhu: I'm jot asking a question.16:57
tensorpuddingbsdfox: a .deb file is basically just the compressed files; installing is copying the files to the right places and registering it in the system, running a few tasks to configure it16:59
jpmhActionParsnip: well - rebooted - no better the only audio input device is still: internal audio analog stereo16:59
bsdfoxtensorpudding: I'm trying to figure out where flashplugin-installer put the binary16:59

ActionParsnipjpmh: why do you need cron to help sound?17:01
stealzI need some help. I put conky in the startup applications, but it starts too soon, so it will be displayed for half a second on the desktop of the login screen, but not on my actual desktop when I'm logged in17:01
bsdfoxtensorpudding: yeah. let me reinstall it17:01
tensorpuddingbsdfox: try doing a search for the file libflashplayer.so in /usr17:01
cbhljpmh: The password on your keyring should be the same as your account; when you set up auto-login, you bypass entering your password but the keyring still needs your password for unlocking17:02
jpmhActionParsnip: I do not understand you question - why do you believe that I believe that I need cron17:02
bsdfoxtensorpudding: I only see the 11.2 beta I installed manually17:02
Exodusbsdfox, if you're trying to install Flash, go to the software center and install it from there. The package name is 'adobe-flashplugin'17:02
cbhljpmh: There might be a way to change the keyring password to be no password, but then it leaves all your saved passwords unencrypted on your drive (generally a bad idea)17:02
jpmhcbhl:  this was not the case till the last boot - it just logged me in - what changed17:02
tensorpuddingbsdfox: maybe it's not installed then17:02
tensorpuddingbsdfox: installing the beta might have overwrote the old one17:02
Exodusbsdfox, flashplugin-installer just runs a script to download the flashplugin, maybe it failed for you.17:02
cbhljpmh: When you log in using your password, it automatically unlocked the keyring at the same time17:02
cbhljpmh: When you login without your password, it doesn't have your password at login so it can't unlock the keyring17:03
bsdfoxI installed from console and the file is there now17:03
ActionParsnipjpmh: just curious17:03
bsdfoxmy flash performance is still pretty bad though17:03

jpmhcbhl - I was not entering a password for that auto-account17:03

Exodusbsdfox, try installing graphics acceleration for your video card.17:04
Reaperso one way or another your gonna be putting in a password lol17:04
jpmhActionParsnip: I still don't understand the question - where did your question come from - why do you think cron is involved17:04

linxxuis ubuntu 11.04 really worth the upgrade or the 10.10 is better?17:06
CM90410.10 is much17:06
CM904much better17:06
ActionParsniplinxxu: there is no better, each has advantages17:06
fowl11.04 has been flawless for me17:06
CM904if you are used to 10.04 or 10.1017:06
bsdfoxExodus: I installed fglrx and it seems fine. desktop is snappy and I can watch videos just fine in dragon player/vlc17:06
CM904your going to hate 11.04 D:17:06
bsdfoxeven full 1080p was working smoothly17:06
linxxujust heard the user interface is terrible in 11.0417:06
CM904that is what i HATE17:07
linxxuand things arent easy to find17:07
CM904about the user interface17:07
ReaperI dont use the new interface, I like classic better17:07
linxxuso came here to ask :P17:07
CM904no they are not. you have to do it terminal if you wanna be fast with it17:07
fowllinxxu: i thought that was GNOMEs fault17:07
wesblakeYes, Unity is not quite there yet, and slow, but in 11.04, you can still choose the "classic" interface!17:07
CM904its just, an awkward searching system17:07
ActionParsniplinuxxu: you can switch to classic gnome if you want, unity 2d will replace it in oneiric (I assume you mean gnome)17:07
linxxubut its ubuntus17:07
fowloh yeah dont use unity, its the sucks17:07
tetsuo--hello. im upgrading to 11.04, but the upgrade process is spitting out 100ś of warnings17:08
ActionParsniplinuxxu: there are other desktops if you don't like gnome/unity etc17:08
linxxui will probably download the image instead of upgrading17:08
tetsuo--warnings like these: Kon '/var/cache/apt/archives/libgudev-1.0-0_1%3a167-0ubuntu3_amd64.deb' niet installeren17:08
CM904its like going from a phone that will never break flip screen, can drop it in water, and then getting a full touch phone, its just really awkward at first, then you become much faster17:08
jpdslinxxu: Er, why don't you just go and try it for yourself?17:08
CM904I do like how the applications tab on the side though, just try it for yourself I guess17:08
linxxuif there are many negative comments i wont download :D17:09
wesblakeCould anyone help me with udev rules on 11.04? Or point me in the right direction? I have followed many guides for hours and it seems my rule is ignored still. :(17:09

CM904ActionParsnip: if alot of people tell you that a restaurant is horrible, would you go? And you can't just leave this restaurant when you take the first bite. You have to 'backup', get out, go back to the same tried, and true resturant that you know and love, and the owner is really good friends with you.17:11
ActionParsnipdamidalla: try the boot option: nomodeset17:11

muneebcheche, Recovery Mode?17:14
linxxuth3n 11.04 :)17:14
CM904wesblake: next part to what?17:15
ActionParsnipcm904: I'm 31 now, trying new is fun. It's how you got into Ubuntu right...I'm sure you used Windows for so long, just like the usual restaurant ;)17:15
chechemuneeb: when start there is a singlemode/recoverymode that let you start on graphics safe mode17:15
linxxui also used windows but ubuntu shipped a cd to me and i tried it :D17:15
wesblakenext part is Beuler. Anyways, anyone able to point me in the right direction on my udev rules quesiton?17:15
linxxufeels better than windows17:16
muneebcheche, okay.. but i guess that mode disable all modules.. i just want prop drivers when i want to play games..17:16

xibalbahey all, anyone familiar with postfix? i'm trying to just use it as a localhost for email submission from a ticketing system running in apache. i'm then trying to relay that to a smart host which is my exchange srerver but i keep getting "recipient address rejected'17:17
chechemuneeb: i think that is more to fix problems.17:17
CM904uhh how do you type commands in this chat like /help17:17
chechemuneeb: there is another way. disable propietary drivers and restart the system17:17
CM904D: oh sorry guys im spamming the chat, ma bad.17:18
muneebcheche, yeah.. idk but something like rmmod but i don't know how..17:18
chechemuneeb: well there is another one.17:18
chechemuneeb: xorg.conf has defin the module to use.17:19
linxxuso this is for intel processors? http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/releases/11.04/release/ubuntu-11.04-dvd-i386.iso17:19
chechemuneeb: you can have 2 xorg.conf files. one with propietary driver and other without17:19
muneebcheche, any pointers as to how can i go about it?17:19

stealzmy conky shows my processor as 2.0 GHz instead of the 2.4 GHz it actually has. Now I'm wondering if ubuntu runs the CPU at full capacity or only uses 2 GHz instead of the 2.4. Is there any way to find out and maybe change this?17:23
stealzsystem monitor shows 2.5 ghz, but I am still not sure17:24
usr13linxxu: pastebinit /proc/cpuinfo   #Send resulting URL17:25
dev777is there any command in ubuntu which is kind of opposite to sudo, allowing a program to force it run in unprivileged user mode?17:25
BluesKajstealz, yes I believe the 'ondemand" state is default for cpu usage , which means it increase it's rate only when required17:25
stealzBluesKaj, thanks. Just ran a high demanding software, and then conky shows the full 2.5 GHz.17:26

Danny_Joris_Hi all - I'm an unix noob and I did something stupid in my Ubuntu VM. I did 'rm -r *' , not knowing it would remove everything from scratch. I thought it would only remove everything in my current folder... SO... that was stupid, but I only confirmed to remove  write-protected directory 'LOGPATH' ... I don't know what damage I've caused and how to revert it...17:26
Danny_Joris_I might have removed much more that didn't need confirmation...?17:27
miktorHow do i reset the gnome display manager settings?17:27
PiciDanny_Joris_: It will only remove things from your current path. Where did you run that?17:27
usr13dev777: If you can give us specific information about a particular application, we might be able to give you spedific advise17:27
Danny_Joris_Pici: desktop/websites/example17:28
Danny_Joris_but it asked to remove some fedoragsearch.log file which can't be in that folder17:28
stealzdev777, if you are not logged in as root, all software runs in user mode by default, no need for an extra command17:28
dev777yes, but suppose i am the root and for some reason, i need to run a program with limited privilege from root.17:29
dev777isn't that possible?17:30
usr13dev777: su - user ./application17:30
PiciDanny_Joris_: Well, that looks like something that you've downlaoded, its possible that there were other files in there.17:30
usr13dev777: su -c user ./application17:30
Danny_Joris_Pici: I'm not sure if it did only remove files from the current path17:30
usr13dev777: man su17:30
Sidewinder1BluesKaj, Just wanted to say a quick HI,. :-)17:31
PiciDanny_Joris_: rm -r shouldn't go up the directory structure.17:31
usr13dev777: su -c user ./application  Was a typo.  I meant:  su -c user ./application  #Where user is actual user name.17:31
Danny_Joris_rm: descend into write-protected directory `LOGPATH'? y17:31
Danny_Joris_rm: remove write-protected regular file `LOGPATH/fedoragsearch.log'? ^C17:31

Danny_Joris_Pici: I did rm -r * though17:32
usr13dev777: Actually that is not right.17:32
Sidewinder1BluesKaj, ;)17:32
PiciDanny_Joris_: I mean it shouldnt go deleting other things in desktop/websites/  if you said rm -r desktop/websites/example17:32
usr13dev777:  su -c   is to run command as root  the next argument is for the app17:33
Danny_Joris_Pici: I didn't specify a path. Just *17:33
Danny_Joris_not 'just' i guess17:33

Danny_Joris_quickstart@qs091:~/Desktop/websites/bamboo$ rm -r *17:33

dev777another question, how do i set my default login session?17:33
Danny_Joris_rm: remove write-protected regular file `LOGPATH/fedoragsearch.log'? ^C17:33
PiciDanny_Joris_: My example was bad. if you were inside desktop/websites/example and you ran rm -r *, it will not go to desktop/ and start deleting things, it will only decend into directories already there.17:33
usr13dev777: What about it do you want to set?17:34
PiciDanny_Joris_: Does that make sense?17:34

SlartCombatjuan: hmm.. then I don't really know why it's doing this... all the different headers/image packages can be quite confusing at times19:23
Slartdistant_voice: & at the end19:24
distant_voicethx Slart19:24
CombatjuanSlart: Indeed.  I've been trying to compile from source but if I do it the "new ubuntu way" then it creates packages that /also/ require that missing package.  If I do it the "old debian way", I can create kernel packages that install but don't boot!19:24
SlartCombatjuan: you're a braver man than I am.. I'm happy my computer works with all the punishment I put it through. =)19:25
CombatjuanSlart: Nah, it's not bravery.  I'm doing it because my computer /doesn't work/.  ~4 times a day at random with the present kernel, something happens with the clock and it freezes for 5 minutes.  Anyway, thanks for the attempt.  I appreciate your time.19:26
SlartCombatjuan: ouch.. is there a bug reported? that sounds like a nasty problem19:27
CombatjuanSlart: I haven't been able to find a bug.  But it's only a problem (apparently) in the early Jaunty kernels (2.6.28-10-~20?).  Jaunty isn't supported anymore.  It seems like it's somehow a problem with newer intel chips turbo boost and the way the system clock is handled in those 2008 era kernels.19:28
Neo31Hello, can somebody tell me please if I can upgrade from Ubuntu Server 8.04 to 12.04 or I have to upgrade to 10.04 first? thank you19:29

=== as456fgt is now known as dury
CombatjuanSlart: Unfortunately, no.  Working on getting there, but as of now, there are many servers around the US that depend on legacy (Jaunty-era) python, and postgres bits.  Anyway, I suspect this patch -> http://git.kernel.org/git/?p=linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux-2.6.git;a=commit;h=8ff3e8e85fa6c312051134b3953e397feb639f51 perhaps would fix my problem.19:31
CombatjuanBut I'm not smart enough to build a kernel that: 1.) compiles, 2.) boots 3.) has network support.  Sometimes I can get 1 and 2...  I don't know.  I'm flailing in the dark.19:32
CombatjuanI can build a working kernel from the 2.6.28-10 source, but unforunately, that's older than the installed version.  It's a mess.19:32

hausdoes anyone know of an equivalent to repomanage (from yum-utils) for dpkg and debs?20:50
bognogI have never used this before, woops20:50
zendeavorp3rsist: runs once at startup as root20:50
guntbertzendeavor: I only gave an alternative to *your* suggestion to use an extra file :-))  - using just less in this case is certainly fine20:50
hausspecifically, the ability to list all of the old debs (compared to the other debs of the same package) in a directory20:50
LanglyWhen even I try and load kubuntu on my MSI wind ae1900 it freezes at this point http://i.imgur.com/ZmNyS.jpg any ideas?20:51
zendeavorwell, output lshw to a file, apt-get remove lshw :)20:51
Combatjuanionosphre: Something like backup your ubuntu menu.lst, add in the entries from your opensuse menu.lst and then use install grub from your ubuntu.20:51
tanathwhy does samba make things so bloody difficult?20:51

tanathhow can i share a folder that keeps giving access denied, even though permissions are set to allow?20:53
tanath(and doesn't show in share)20:53
zendeavori'm just here to leech help about the tkip problem with networkmanager, don't patronize me guntbert !!20:54
ionosphreCombatjuan: Install from my live cd or from my terminal20:54
Combatjuanionosphre: I don't follow.  And it's hard to be specific without knowing your drive setups and OSes plus I'm always also dealing with weird windows dual boots and when I attempt similar, I break my MBR.  But the gist is, OpenSuse probably didn't look for other OSes when it made its menu.lst.20:55
tanathi have a functioning share, and i made a link in it to another folder i want to access and made sure the permissions allow it, but i still get access denied20:55
Combatjuanionosphre: Assuming that's the case, if you boot into opensuse (which I gather you can do?), you can mount your ubuntu partition, and pull the ubuntu entries out of its menu.lst and put them in the opensuse menu.lst.  It doesn't matter who ends up with them.20:56
Combatjuanionosphre: But whichever file ends up with them, that's the one you want to install to the MBR of your boot drive.20:57
ionosphreAhh sorry basically just cut and paste from one file to the other. Was trying to make things more complex than needed to be.20:58
tanathhow can i make the folder accessible?20:58
=== skorm is now known as snoopy1alpha
=== snoopy1alpha is now known as skorm
Combatjuantanath: You have set up users, set up your /etc/samba/smb.conf, and set correct permissions on those folders?21:00
skormmy xmodmap settings from .Xmodmap are forgotten by the system frequently. I did not find out yet when this happens. Does anyone have the same problem?21:01
tanathCombatjuan, i used system-config-samba. everything works, except accessing that folder21:02

Sargalushow do I get identd working on ubuntu 11.0421:03
guntbertis there any "tutorial" on "how to do things in unity" ?21:04
tanathCombatjuan, i checked permissions on the shortcut, and on the folder and the folder above and set them all to be readable by others21:04
Combatjuantanath: The folder must also be executable.21:04
tanathCombatjuan, (folder above in actual path that is. can already access the share)21:04
remingtonUbuntu wont give me options for above stereo duplex with my onboard sound, I know my onboard sound is capable of 8 channels. Any ideas? (11.04 x64)21:05
tanathCombatjuan, mm. will double-check that21:05
tanathCombatjuan, still access denied21:05
tanathCombatjuan, and doesn't show in share21:06
Combatjuantanath: To be clear, this is not something I'm good at.  I deal with it when I have to.  I recommend http://www.cyberciti.biz/tips/how-do-i-set-permissions-to-samba-shares.html.  Maybe check your directory_mask in the smb.conf?  Make sure the user you're using to access is a member of the proper group and/or owns the folder?21:06
