mindrape...00:00
mindrapethis place is always dead.00:00
urlin2urobotti^_, you want the sdc in the bios firat read00:00
robotti^_urlin2u: what you mean? firat?00:00
Free-manfirst00:00
urlin2umindrape, change your nic please this is a family friendly channel00:01
robotti^_oka00:01
dmkaeurlin2u, then wubi cannot be installed on d:\?00:01
mindrapeurlin2u - how is my name offensive?  http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=mindrape00:01
mindrapeyou can /kb me if you like.00:01
mindrapemy name isn't offensive and if you feel it is you are asinine.00:01
BuMpIcjose33_Spaniard, this is high for me:D i will learn it later00:01
urlin2urobotti^_, first in the bios means sdcat the top of the list.00:01
qmryea, can everyone get over themselves?  I don't care about his name00:02
robotti^_urlin2u: Okay!00:02
urlin2umindrape, if it has to be explained your not worth dealing with.00:02
jose33_SpaniardBuMpIc, you just have to type it, man !!00:02
qmrdoes anyone know how to make nautilus not have so much whitespace between image files?  it's using a HUGE amoutn of whitespace... wasted space00:02
BuMpIcjose33_Spaniard, i typed it00:02
mindrapeurlin2u - then ban away if you must.  What has to be explained is your psychotic need to be overly protective.  The word rape isn't even offensive except in some contexts.  Ever heard the saying "You've been raped of your freedoms?"  Well that is how I am feeling right now... rapist.00:03
jose33_Spaniardand did you see a new directory??00:03
urlin2urobotti^_, that is the least of your problems you are missing the files I posted and having grub in the sdc mbr00:03
BuMpIcjose33_Spaniard, sht:D lokks like i typed the directory name00:04
notlisteningoh it is surprising people come looking for a fight even in a help room :D00:04
KNUBBIGhey, is it possible to allow ssh login only to some users depending on the network they're from, e.g. allow some users to connect only from LAN but others from WAN and LAN?00:04
bluelamprape (v.)   late 14c., "seize prey, take by force,"00:05
jose33_Spaniardyeah, because the directory has been created00:05
urlin2unothingspecial, cognitive problems :)00:05
Danny_JorisHi, I'm using Ubuntu in a Guest VM and I'm trying to get ssh and ftp access from my Host to my Guest. Do I do this using openSSH?00:05
KNUBBIGDanny_Joris: yes00:05
mindrapebluelamp - welcome to the police state of #ubuntu... thinking isn't illegal... YET.00:05
BuMpIcjose33_Spaniard, but this is how we have to run it?00:05
notlisteningKNUBBIG, yes it is very possible00:05
BuMpIcjose33_Spaniard, theres no easier way?00:05
rodhashGuys.. Pls, how can I see the exact amount of memory in use by a specific process? 'ps aux' shows up just the percentage..00:05
KNUBBIGnotlistening: any tutorial or somewhere to look how to achieve that?00:06
jose33_Spaniardni, but it's the first step00:06
bastidrazorrodhash: use 'top'00:06
notlisteningDanny_Joris, best not to use NAT though !!00:06
jose33_Spaniardnow, enter in that directory00:06
Danny_JorisKNUBBIG: thanks. So.. I'm reading https://help.ubuntu.com/10.04/serverguide/C/openssh-server.html . Do I install open-ssh client or open-ssh server?00:06
Danny_Jorisnotlistening: thanks. I'm using 2 adapters: NAT and Host-Only..00:06
bastidrazorrodhash: you can't convert percentage to an actual number?00:06
KNUBBIGDanny_Joris: on the machine you want to acces openssh-server00:06
urlin2urobotti^_, the #windows channel might be best to fix the windows problem, just a suggestion, if you don't know how. :D00:06
robotti^_urlin2u: I changed it00:06
notlisteningKNUBBIG, are you planning to allow access to the WAN? You should look a RSA certificates for authentication00:07
robotti^_urlin2u: And there is no grub menu00:07
jose33_Spaniardrodhash, what about ps -ef ??00:07
coz_rodhash,  mm  maybe pmap pid    example   pmap 372400:07
KNUBBIGnotlistening: yes the machine shall have WAN access00:07
robotti^_urlin2u: problem is, that there is no grub menu00:07
urlin2urobotti^_, that is the least of your problems you are missing the files I posted and having grub in the sdc mbr00:07
Newbuntu2hello00:07
robotti^_urlin2u: should I re-install ubuntu00:07
jpapertowelsok natty live amd64 can't install grub to intel fakeraid? :(00:07
Newbuntu2I'm using the avermedia linux drivers for C038, but when I launch VLC and try to open /dev/video0, nothing happens.... can anyone help?00:07
Danny_JorisKNUBBIG: thanks. So I won't need the client? My host is Vista and I'm planning to use Putty.00:08
KNUBBIGDanny_Joris: no then you won't need the client00:08

Danny_Joristhanks00:08
KNUBBIGnp00:08
rodhashOh I found, it's RSS from 'ps aux'!!! FYI !! \o/00:08
coz_rodhash,  maybe install htop00:08
urlin2urobotti^_, no your problem is missing this in sdc1 /bootmgr /Boot/BCD,  and grub in the sdc master boot record00:08
urlin2urobotti^_, and the boot flag on sdc100:09
bluelampmindrape, why did you choose this term for your nick ?00:09
qmrhttp://i.imgur.com/STVNd.png  wtf is with whitespace?00:09
robotti^_urlin2u: should I re-install windows?00:09
notlisteningKNUBBIG, https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SSH/OpenSSH/Keys for keys00:09
KNUBBIGnotlistening: thanks00:09
qmrthere is very nearly more whtiespace than images00:09
urlin2urobotti^_, no go to the #windows channel have them help you get those files in, then put grub in the sdc mbr00:10
jose33_Spaniardmindrape, why dont you explain it on a public board?? :)00:10
jpapertowelscute cat qmr00:10
qmrjpapertowels: <300:10
alex--Can I use Ubuntu Tweak or is it dangerous?00:10
urlin2urobotti^_, a reinstall to that sdc1 partition would fix this but not really needed, unless that is easier for you.00:10
bastidrazoralex--: you can use it, yes. it makes configuring certain things easier. it is not official but is effective.00:11
* bluelamp does not find mindrapes nick offensive. 00:11
KNUBBIGnotlistening: if I get it right, this requires that I only log in from the same pc with the same user all the time, aight?00:11
Gentoo64alex--, its not dangerous00:11
alex--Ok00:11
robotti^_urlin2u: sdc is my primary drive. it is ssd. there is ubuntu and windows00:11
alex--System janitor was dangerous right?00:11
notlisteningKNUBBIG, this is not ubuntu specific but applies to any ssh enabled machine on the WAN http://wiki.centos.org/HowTos/Network/SecuringSSH00:11
urlin2ualex--, not generally depends on how you use it.00:11
bluelampmindrape, why did you choose this term for your nick ?00:11
alex--urlin2u: chaning the logo on the login page00:11
bastidrazoralex--: when you don't understand what the janitor wants to remove yes. otherwise no00:11
urlin2ualex--, any app is it is amatter of understanding00:12
alex--Ah00:12
alex--yes00:12
KNUBBIGnotlistening: correct, but as the machine I want to log in to is running Ubuntu I thought I might ask here00:12
Free-mani get it, a mind rape is what police do to harrass someone who is not doing anything to earn their abuse.00:12
bluelampwhy does xchat-gnome not have a user list ?00:12
jose33_Spaniardbluelamp, he explained it some minutes ago.00:12
alex--Is there any way I can download all Ubuntu wallpapers of the last years (9.04 - 11.10) ?00:12
urlin2ualex--, in 11.04 I don't thonk the login page is changeable from the tweak I can't get it to work.00:13
bluelampoh, thanks jose33_Spaniard00:13
bastidrazorbluelamp: its a bastardization of xchat. xchat is far better00:13
alex--urlin2u: I meant the logo and the background00:13
jose33_Spaniardhe's not dangerous.00:13
notlisteningKNUBBIG, i was talking about the website link i gave you not your questions, your questions are just fine keep asking away00:13
bluelampoh, thanks basti00:14
KNUBBIGnotlistening: ah okay, thank you :-)00:14
urlin2ujose33_Spaniard, a narcissistic explanation and way of communicating, s the norm with that user.00:14
anth0nyok, so I installed Python 2.7 on my Linux 10.04 system.  Is there a way to make it so that Python2.7 is the default Python used? I'm using an application framework based on Python and it's still using 2.6.  Additionally, it would be cool if typing Python took me to the Python2.7 terminal instead of the 2.6.  Any ideas?00:14
robotti^_urlin2u: I do not understand, what I have done wrong.00:14
robotti^_urlin2u: it is biggest problem00:15
qmranth0ny: alias / symlink00:15
bluelampi did not see it, nor did i see it in scroll back though.00:15
urlin2urobotti^_, you have a windows problem go to #windows post the script and they will help you00:15
jpapertowelscreative sb titanium hd still not supported in ubuntu? :( keep getting ctxfi: Something wrong!! on boot00:15
dmkaethis is dissapointing00:15
dmkaei cant get ubuntu running :(00:15
Free-mananth0ny remove older pythongs installed.00:15
dmkaewith wubi00:15
robotti^_urlin2u: I removed my other windows hdd00:16
bluelampwhat would be the most useful irc client for linux bastidrazor ?00:16
urlin2urobotti^_, sorry ##windows00:16
robotti^_it might be reason00:16
robotti^_ok00:16
urlin2urobotti^_, yes if it had part of the windows boot that makes sense00:16
=== ng_ is now known as zz_ng_
dmkaei added the wubildr line in boot.ini00:16
dmkaeis that ok?00:16
Gentoo64bluelamp, i like xchat the best00:16
notlisteningseconds Gentoo6400:17
anth0nyFree-man, I've heard that's a bad idea, could break Ubuntu, no?00:17
urlin2udmkae, hardly anybody here uses wubi, you will probably get answers in that thread if you post the boot script.00:17
dmkaehow do i get the boot script, if i cant even get to ubuntu00:17
Free-mananth0ny do it properly; it's called `a clean system' :)00:17
qmrbluelamp: irssi00:18
bastidrazorbluelamp: i like irssi which is cli only. xchat for GUI00:18
robotti^_urlin2u: there was always windows boot manager and two different windows7 installations00:18
robotti^_and I removed that hdd.00:18
urlin2udmkae, it is here, all you have to do is have a live ubuntu cd. http://bootinfoscript.sourceforge.net/00:18
robotti^_now I cannot boot it00:18
robotti^_okay00:18
robotti^_now I understand00:18
anth0nyFree-man, how does one do that properly?  isn't 10.04 dependent on Python 2.6?00:18
triunitytest00:19
ZAHHirssi over here00:19
urlin2urobotti^_, right and it is not a ubuntu problem it is a windows one go to there channel and get it fixed.00:19
Free-mananth0ny do an upgrade instead of just an install00:19
urlin2utheir00:19
earl2hol23irssi is sexy00:19
Gentoo64its gay00:19
bazhangthats enough00:20
earl2hol23me too00:20
ArseneReiShould ubuntu have an xorg config by default?00:20
bazhangArseneRei, no00:20
Gentoo64ArseneRei, i dont think so00:20
bastidrazorArseneRei: no but if you create one it will use it00:20
=== robotti^_ is now known as robotti^
notlisteningArseneRei, depends on the version00:20
earl2hol23ahhh rape me00:20
urlin2urobotti^_, the best helpers there are dual booting linux, or know it quite well.00:20
bazhangearl2hol23, stop that00:20
bazhang!guidelines > earl2hol2300:21
ubottuearl2hol23, please see my private message00:21
earl2hol23maybe later00:21
ArseneReiWell, I'm trying to resolve a graphics driver issue with my macbook. And in the ubuntu wiki it says to set the driver in xorg.conf to intel, so I was wondering if a macbook install would.00:21
ZAHHplay nice boys.00:21
jose33_Spaniardbye, everyone :)00:21
bazhangZAHH, chit chat in #ubuntu-offtopic00:22
earl2hol23bazhang: dont be a jerk.00:22
happygoluckyArseneRei: I don't think xserver has an xorg.conf anymore but there is definitely an xorg channel00:22
anth0nyFree-man, so, you're talking about upgrading my OS to 11.04 or is this different?  it would just upgrade python?00:22
ArseneReihappygolucky: Alright, thanks.00:23
Free-mananth0ny not necesarily; you can upgrade just a package00:23
scxhello00:23
bluelampyeah, this is better00:23
notlisteningArseneRei, the location of the files have changes 10.04 upwards you need to different parts of the xorg config in different files now00:23
earl2hol23I just entered one last time to say00:24

bazhangPerdidonline, this is ubuntu support; have a support question?00:29
alex--jpapertowels: when did you bought your hardware?00:29
PerdidonlineNo... its my first time on IRC00:30
jpapertowelsalex--: i bought it a month ago maybe...titanium hd soundcard, sli gtx 590 gfx, i7-990x, etc00:30
Perdidonlineand my english is bad....00:30
bazhangPerdidonline, #ubuntu-offtopic for chat NOT here00:30
alex--jpapertowels: And which components don't do work?00:30
alex--Because it can't be that nothing works00:30
scxhow to change style of gtk+3 application in GNOME 2?00:30
PerdidonlineAhhh ok...  sorry00:31
jpapertowelsalex--:  titanium hd mainly, also my intel fakeraid doesnt work with natty though does work with oneiric00:31
destisoundcard is a creative? will never work, creative just suxx00:31
urlin2ujpapertowels, you can put lilo in the mbr it boots windows00:31
jpapertowelsurlin2u: i formatted my usb drive with ubuntu live on it to put winpe on it to restore bootloader but now everything i open on ubuntu live crashes so i cant extract the winpe iso to it xD00:32
alex--Shotwell updates with nested tags, bmp support and more. You can install it by downloading it from the editors site, or add their PPA. Why isn't this new version included in 11.04 software center?00:32
NS_techwhat is the command to remove a directory and its contents?   i have been using sudo rmdir -r (directory)00:33

destirm -Rv00:33
bastidrazorNS_tech: rm -rf directory00:33
alex--illunatic: #ubuntu-offtopic00:33
jpapertowelsdesti: creative soundblaster hardware is great, their drivers suck, but not many soundcard manufacturer creates linux drivers anyway it would have to be the ctxfi linux driver makers that suck no offense if theyre reading this :300:33
bazhangillunatic, dont spam here00:33
alex--NS_tech: sudo rm -R (directory) as far as I know00:34
alex--I can be mistaking, that you have to type r00:34
bastidrazorNS_tech: -r is for recursive -f is for force so that it doesn't ask you to verify every file00:34
illunaticsorry totally the wrong channel00:34
illunatici genuinely did not mean to00:34
kwtmDoes Ubuntu now have the feature where a laptop can be suspended to RAM, and then if not used within a certain amount of time (say half an hour) it then suspends to disk to save battery life?00:34
dmkaeanyone here develop ?00:34
illunatici just /win c some on irssi xD00:34
illunaticalex--: thanks tho00:34
urlin2ukwtm, never heard of one.00:35
alex--kwtm: Suspended to RAM = stand-by00:35
NS_techthanks.  sudo rm -rf (directory) worked00:35
notlisteningillunatic, grow up00:36
illunaticexcuse me?00:36
illunatic#ubuntu-offtopic, sir00:36
bastidrazorNS_tech: you're welcome00:36
jamiewanNS_tech: care is needed with the rm -rf command, its very close to wiping your file system if you make a certain error00:37
destijpapertowels, how should they make drivers, when creative doesn't give them documentation about their chips, also when you buy the card, you pay to creative and so it's their job to make drivers00:37
kwtmalex--: Not sure of your point.  For the record, I agree that suspended to RAM = stand-by.  Does Ubuntu have the feature of hibernation after a certain amount of time in standby?00:37
illunaticwell if you read the whole thing it's actually a bit more baalanced than most things i write00:37
alex--kwtm: This would be a BIOS feature if it exists. As far as I know Ubuntu doesn't haves a feature like this.00:38
illunatici'm from san francisco and definitely familiar with where the gay community is coming from on this00:38
alex--illunatic: what do you mean?00:38
NS_techJamiewan: what do i need to watch out for?00:38
illunaticoh sorry i guess they kicked me from offtopic00:39
* illunatic shrugs00:39
alex--NS_tech: If you type / as directory, it doesn't asks you something like: are you sure?00:39
jamiewanNS_tech: well sudo rm -rf / is not a good idea, kind of completely breaks ya system00:39
kwtmalex--: Really? I have a winXP laptop dualbooting into Kubuntu, and the WinXP is able to suspend from RAM to disk, but Kubuntu 10.04 does not, which is what's preventing me from using Kubuntu for daily use.   It seems more like a OS issue than BIOS --how is the BIOS able to suspend to disk from RAM?00:39
alex--kwtm: how do you do that, suspend from ram to disk?00:40
notlisteningjamiewan, Ubuntu does not allow you to do that :D00:40
illunatici'm not sure why i was banned from offtopic, but w/e00:40
notlisteningjamiemill, you have to be creative00:40
jamiewanNS_tech: nothingspecial it certainly does when i've used it,00:41
kiko_ola00:41

BlueEagleusr_: Well that depends on the kind of devices, firewalls and so on. nmap would most likely fit any bill.00:47

urlin2ulimitations00:48
EzeQLi have 100G free for installating ubuntu00:49

EzeQLi do not want to use automatic partition00:49
happygoluckyi'm finding out all sorts of useful tid bits about keyboard shortcuts in ubuntu that i never knew existed. for instance i've been use the less command to look at large documents in terminal but I could have just hit shift+page up. Interesting to me00:49
urlin2uEzeQL, how many other partitions do you have as seen from linux00:49
EzeQLtwo ntfs, one fat32 for sharing files between both os00:49
BlueEagleEzeQL: Linux' ntfs-support is now stable.00:50
EzeQLdidnt know that, ty BlueEagle00:50
blognewbhi00:50
urlin2uEzeQL, cool if that is correct as 4 primaries is the limit the 100 gig should be a extended type, and the one inside xt4 and a swap00:50
urlin2uones00:50
urlin2uext4*00:51
EzeQLhow much percentage of the ext4 size should be used as swap?00:51
blognewbhello.. im trying to install lubuntu.. can i still give it more space later on once i have partitioned my hd to alot 40gb for lubuntu?00:51
bastidrazorEzeQL: it should be equal to your RAM.00:52
robotti^how I can access grub menu?00:52
urlin2uEzeQL, a swap which will be inside of the extended is equal to your ram to have hibernate.00:52
jamiewanEzeQL: same as ya ram mate00:52
LoRd_UnDeRwOrLdhi where does ff save the .flv files from youtube? before they were temporary saved in /tmp and then to .mozilla/firefox/username/cache but now they are neither in the first folder nor in the last one. where can i find them? thank u - ubuntu10.10 - ff3 - gnome00:52
notlistening2x ram size is a good idea00:52
BlueEaglerobotti^: If the grub menu does not show while booting try pressing the escape key.00:52
notlisteningdepends on ram size00:52
urlin2uEzeQL, the extended is a partion to put the ext type and swap in.00:52
bastidrazorrobotti^: during boot? press and hold shift after POST00:52
blognewbonce ive set 40gb of hd for lubuntu, can i still adjust it and expand it later on?00:53
BlueEaglerobotti^: If you want to change the timeouts and such check your grub configuration00:53
bastidrazorBlueEagle: shift key00:53
bastidrazorerr.. it may be ctrl..00:53
urlin2urobotti^, why are you erasing grub?00:53
BlueEagleurlin2u: is he erasing grub?00:54
urlin2urobotti^, sory not erasing, your problem is not in grub.00:54
alex--Shotwell updates with nested tags, bmp support and more. You can install it by downloading it from the editors site, or add their PPA. Why isn't this new version included in 11.04 software center?00:55
urlin2uBlueEagle, no but is searching for fixes that are not applicable, as the ones needed may not be understood.00:55
BlueEaglealex--: Because it has not been sufficiently tested in Ubuntu and signed off as stable?00:55
alex--BlueEagle: so when it's stable it goes to software center?00:55
BlueEagleThe repositories are continously upgraded. Make sure you have the back ports repo active.00:56

alex--How long should it take to resize a partition from 141 GB to 110 GB ?00:57
jamiewanalex--ything from 1minute to 5: an00:58
BlueEaglealex--: It depends on the speed of the media, the file system being resized (if any) and the amount of data in the file system.00:58
alex--96 GB used00:58
alex--Ah it's done now :)00:59
BlueEagle...and the speed of the processor and what other processes are running, any other disk activity needs to be taken into account.00:59
jamiewancome on, a couple minutes would be accurate enuf00:59
alex--Ok00:59
BlueEaglejamiewan: It would be as pointless as the question imo. :)00:59
alex--What do you recommend for Ubuntu 11.04 install, 20 or 30 GB?00:59
jamiewanBlueEagle: true but he just wants a rough idea i think,01:00
BlueEaglealex--: Again, it would depend on the usage scenario. If you're just starting to get to know it 20GB is plenty. If you run big databases and web sites 30GB may be too little.01:00
=== maknz_ is now known as maknz
alex--starting to know01:01
alex--I used ubuntu before, but I want to use things like shotwell now01:01
BlueEagle20GB should be plenty.01:01
alex--Ok01:01
BlueEaglethat is unles you've got more than 20GB of images you intend to use with Shotwell. ;)01:02
alex--No01:02
alex--It's not possible to create more than 4 primary partitions01:02
kwtmalex--: I'll tell you how I do it; it might help.  I assign 8GB to my Ubuntu partition, but all my data is in a separate partition which at least 100GB in size (my biggest is 1.2TB).   So I'd estimate 8GB + whatever data you need.01:02
alex--I have dual boot in a laptop with 120 gb hdd01:03
kwtmas for resizing, if you have to move a lot of data, it can take a long time.  For example, removing 31 GB from the end of the partition, if it's empty, may be fast.  Removing 31 GB from the front of the partition, and maybe having to shift almost all of the files to make room, may take "overnight".  I've done it before and it took about 5 hours.01:04
Danny_JorisI have an issue restarting openssh. I did: sudo /etc/init.d/ssh restart, but I get a message that I have to use 'service ssh restart'01:04
Danny_Jorisbut that returns an error as well..01:05
blognewbhi guys... once ive set 40gb of hd for lubuntu, can i still adjust it and expand it later on?01:05
Danny_JorisSo: how do I restart openssh?01:05
alex--Danny_Joris: then do sudo service ssh restart01:05
=== KNUBBIG is now known as KNUBBIG_
kwtmalex--: If you know how to do it, I suggest Ubuntu itself in a smaller partition of, say, 8-10GB, then another partition of 8-10GB in case you want another OS (like the next higher version of ubuntu) and then the rest is data.01:05
bazhangblognewb, dynamically? no01:05
Danny_Jorisah01:05
alex--Danny_Joris: just like it says01:05
kwtmblognewb: Hi!  We were just talking about that in my sentence I typed right after you asked.01:05
bazhangblognewb, with a live cd or gparted live cd, yes01:05
kwtmYou know, I should put that into a macro and then I would save some time. :)01:06
alex--I can't create more than 4 primary partitions. Why?01:06
kwtmalex--: That is the system that has been agreed to for disk partitions.  Nor do you need to create more than 4 partitions.  You only need 2.01:06
bazhang!partition > alex--01:06
ubottualex--, please see my private message01:06
kwtmalex--: Within a parti -- oh01:06
kwtmCan I get to know what the !partition factoid is, too?01:06
blognewbkwtm so yes? coz i still am not sure what i would install in it.. i would for sure have libreoffice, Gimp, filezilla.. lemmp01:06
kwtm!partition > kwtm01:06
ubottukwtm, please see my private message01:06
Danny_Jorisalex--: cool, thanks. So I'm setting up openssh on a VM. Do I need to manually start openssh every time I restart my VM?01:06
urlin2ualex--, that is the law in mbr typed drives a extended will allow a lot more logical though01:06
alex--Danny_Joris: no01:07
alex--Danny_Joris: depends actually01:07
alex--kwtm: Windows partition, boot partition, recovery partition, some other tools partition, and I want to create ubuntu partition01:07
ultrixxis reiserfs a good filesystem or should i use ext4?01:07

ubottusilare, please see my private message01:07
urlin2ualex--, 3 primaries and a extended for ubuntu is what you want01:07
alex--urlin2u: 4 primaries are then01:08
alex--How to add extended?01:08
alex--I resized my first partition01:08
alex--Now I have white space01:08
kwtmblognewb: Technically, yes you can change it.  Practically: it can take hours while your computer is unable to do anything else.  Much better to partition it the right way the first time, with spare partitions as necessary.01:08
zahhDoes anyone know why Domain names wont resolve for non-root users in a chroot'd environment?01:08

bastidrazorzahh: aren't you toying with android?01:09
blognewbkwtm does ubuntu come flash compatible?01:09
kwtmalex--: As I was going to say when someone jumped in with a factoid that was only directed to one person within this conversation, you only need 2 partitions: if you set the second partition as "extended", then that partition can itself contain as many other partitions as you need.  These would be logical partitions.  But primary means that there are no partitions contained inside.01:09
urlin2ualex--, a extended is done in linux gparted is the easiest, you can only have as much as 3 primaries and one extended which can have a unlimited logical type, which ubuntu wil run in with know problem01:09
alex--kwtm: I'm stuck with 'unallocated' now01:09
alex--I'm in gparted01:09
alex--How can I make extended partition?01:09
kwtmblognewb: Umm... not sure why you are asking me.  I know partitions.  I don't know flash.  In fact, I don't even use Ubuntu.01:09
urlin2ualex--, post a imagebin of a screen shot of gparted01:10
alex--Do I have to make the C:/ partition with windows bigger?01:10
blognewbwhy are you here? kwtm01:10
bazhangblognewb, of course you can install flash01:10
kwtmalex--: So what you want to do is replace all but the first partition (which must be primary) with logical partitions inside an extended partition.01:10
EzeQLwhere can i find gparted?01:10
kwtmblognewb: I am here so that I can tell people to direct their questions to everyone, not just one single person.01:10

urlin2ualex--, posta screen shot of gparted.01:11
Sylarsofti can't connect to the server01:11
kwtmurlin2u: Are you serious?  Well, I guess that decides which OS will go into the primary partition.  That's kind of unwieldy.  It's been a long time since I've put Windows on a computer...01:11
bazhangblognewb, no one answer for that01:11
alex--urlin2u: http://imagebin.org/16992401:12
dmkaeis there a way to move a wubi install to a dedicated one?01:12
urlin2ukwtm, windows is just that way, tweaks that I doubt any know here can get to run but that is real geek stuff. A shred will run though, just not the bootable OS.01:12
kwtmalex--: Can GParted switch a partition from primary to extended?   If not, then you'll have to convert one partition at a time.  If you can't spare a primary partition to erase and convert into extended, you may be out of luck.01:12
bazhangdmkae, yes there is, check the wubiguide for that01:12

ubottudmkae, please see my private message01:13
kwtmalex--: You have GParted open right now -- is there an option for "change partition to extended"?  I wonder who used all 4 primaries?  That was not a very wise thing to do.01:13
alex--kwtm: HP Did01:13
urlin2ualex--, your being led astray01:13
alex--led astray?01:14
kwtmurlin2u: I guess in the past I've always had Windows computers on which I installed Linux, so I always ended up having Windows on primary, not knowing that it would mean trouble to have it any other way.01:14
urlin2ualex--, bad advice01:14
alex--So what do I have to do now?01:14
urlin2ualex--, post a screenshot of gparted would be a good start01:14
EzeQLim on the live cd01:14
JoeR1urlin2u, Well all of my attempts to recover my Linux partition have failed and I found out that my ISO of Xubuntu x64 is missing01:14
urlin2uEzeQL, gpared is on the live cd01:14
urlin2ugparted01:15
kwtmalex--: Aaaugh.  My condolences.  I've had bad experiences with their computers.  Anyway ... you may need to get rid of one partition, or consider buying a new hard disk (it might be enough of a bargain).  I wonder if you can store the entirety of one partition on another?  What were your 4 partitions again?01:15
kwtmWait, boot partition?01:15
JoeR1urlin2u, I was too tired to remember what you recommended last night before I went to sleep01:15
bazhangkwtm, thats very poor advice01:15
urlin2uJoeR1,  don't remember exactly what you were doing.01:15
urlin2uI01:15
kwtmalex--: You have a boot partition and a separate Windows partition?  Is that necessary?  Last time I did this I was using Win2k.01:15
alex--kwtm: boot is for some bios like thing01:16
kwtmbazhang: I will defer to your expertise.01:16
bazhangkwtm, please dont comment if you have no idea of what you're saying01:16
jamiewanhmmm01:16
alex--kwtm: HP did when I bought the laptop01:16
JoeR1urlin2u, I was having trouble with the MBR on my primary partition and many attempts to rebuild it had failed01:16
kwtmbazhang: Alright, I will refrain from commenting.  I didn't realize I had no idea what I'm saying, but apparently one study showed that people who were ignorant were ignorant of their ignorance.01:16
urlin2uJoeR1, post that bootscript you ran.01:17
urlin2ukwtm, yeah I fit right in there at times,:D01:17

alex--Anyone who can help me creating a partition for Ubuntu? http://imagebin.org/16992401:18
EzeQLurlin2u, thanks01:20
urlin2ualex--, one partion has to go, if your backed up and have a install disc I would suggest the recovery01:20
urlin2ualex--, the boot partition could go instead but you will probably have to load some files to the C partition to boot01:21
alex--urlin2u: I didn't do both01:21
alex--no backup, no installation disc01:21
whathi can anyone help me with rtl8187 usb network connection problems?01:22
urlin2ualex--, don't do anything though until we fix windows for boot after removing any partition01:22
C3POwn3d_Hello. I'm running 10 and for some reason my hard drive constantly runs. Anyone know what I could do to fix it?01:22
alex--urlin2u: may I give windows his 'space' back?01:22
urlin2ualex--, you have a recovery disc or install disc for windows?01:22
FAalbersHello. I can't seem to open more then one terminal in 11.04. Am I overlooking something ?01:22
alex--make /dev/sda2 bigger (like it was)01:22
alex--urlin2u: no, only a recovery partition01:23
alex--FAalbers: try ctrl alt t01:23
urlin2ualex--, go back to windows, and make a recovery disc01:23
alex--urlin2u: may I give windows his 'space' back? make /dev/sda2 bigger (like it was)01:23
E3D3I just installed the latest Ubuntu Alternate and can't find Opera web-browser. How can I install it ?01:23
urlin2ualex--, sure,01:23
FAalbersalex--, That worked :) How com the icon in the sidebar doesn't do that ?01:24
alex--urlin2u: and windows can boot normally?01:24
urlin2ualex--, to install ubuntu though a partiton must go.01:24
Sylarsofthttp://imagebin.org/16992601:24
alex--FAalbers: I dont know. In my opinion Unity is still beta01:24
urlin2ualex--, are you using the disk manager in windows to shrink and exspand?01:24
th0rE3D3: opera.com has a deb package for ubuntu01:24
EzeQLshould i enter something on "mount point" ?01:24
alex--urlin2u: gparted on live usb01:24
FAalbersalex--, Is 11.04 called Unity ?01:25
urlin2ualex--, is it W&01:25
urlin2uW701:25
FAalbersalex--, Or is that the name of the UI01:25
alex--FAalbers: It's using Unity.01:25
alex--FAalbers: You have GNOME and Unity (They used gnome 2.x in ubuntu 10.04, and Unity in 11.04)01:25
urlin2ualex--, is it W7?01:25
alex--urlin2u: yes01:25
E3D3EzeQL: Thanks01:26
FAalbersI see ! Thanks alex--01:26
urlin2ualex--, only use the disk manager to move the window partition in W701:26
alex--Can I give his partition back now?01:26
alex--Because I rezised it with gparted01:26
alex--I mean: make it like it was01:26
urlin2ualex--, see if windows will boot now and expand the partition and make a recovery disc01:27
urlin2ualex--, you need to make a backup as well to be safe really.01:27
=== daek_ is now known as Daekdroom
alex--urlin2u: see if windows boots first, or first make bigger?01:27
alex--urlin2u: in bigger, like: how it was before I went on ubuntu01:27
alex--So I need to start backups now?01:28
alex--urlin2u: Make partition bigger, boot windows, install backup software, go backup01:28
alex--Right?01:28
urlin2ualex--, see if windows will boot. You should only be resizing that C partition in windows with the disk manager not gparted with the disc that full.01:28
alex--So I have to leave it like this right now?01:29
alex--Are you sure?01:29
urlin2ualex--, there are unmovable parts of the W7C that gparted cares nothong about and may make the W7 unbootable, which would need a recovery disc to fix if fixable01:30
EzeQLurlin2u, whats mount point ?01:30
urlin2uEzeQL, /01:30
alex--urlin2u: I resized it with the installer01:30
urlin2uEzeQL, choose /01:30
EzeQLperfect01:30
urlin2ualex are we communicating here?01:31
EzeQLand the anothers ? ntfs drivers?01:31
urlin2uEzeQL, not sure where your at you would not touch those, are you in the something other partitioning area?01:31
alex--urlin2u: yes, but the installer is something else than gparted. I mean: bring it back like how it was before I started with Ubuntu now, or just boot windows?01:31
EzeQLyep01:32
urlin2ualex--, boot windows01:32
urlin2uEzeQL, you only need to confirm where you want ubuntu and the grub placement in that gui, and the monut for the ext4 partition=/01:32
EzeQLihave created all partitions as you indicated me , i set mount point / on ext4 partition01:32
urlin2uEzeQL, yeah just make sure you have the ext4 as the point of install.01:33
EzeQLok, i dont see any grub option over here..01:33
alex--urlin2u: Windows wants to check the filetype on C:/01:33
alex--dit's checking files now01:33
urlin2uEzeQL, first gui after choosing that are below screen, grub to the mbr only probably sda01:34
EzeQLok, ty01:34
alex--it's *01:34
urlin2uEzeQL, grub is in the first gui on choosing something else below the partition screen01:34
urlin2ualex--, that is normal go ahead.01:35
alex--ok01:35
urlin2ualex--, that s what may happen when you move the windows partition from outside of windows, rather then using it's partitioner01:36
alex--urlin2u: Didnt know win7 had a partitioner01:36
urlin2ualex--, yeah a virtual one in W7 pretty cool stuff.01:36
alex--sarcasm?01:37
urlin2uno01:37
urlin2ualex--, I wish linux had that capeability.01:37
alex--urlin2u: what's the difference between gparted and win7 one?01:37
urlin2ualex--, a lot of differences, but mainly the W7 one can do it on the system while using gprated can't in this situation.01:38
alex--on the system?01:39
=== younishd_ is now known as younishd
urlin2ualex--, gparted is graet it just does not resize a partition while using it.01:39
alex--ah01:39
urlin2ualex--, also the W7 partitioner will look at your partition and tell you how much you can shrink it safely01:40
qinurlin2u: lvm?01:40
urlin2uqin, ?01:40
alex--urlin2u: so ubuntu can learn from windows one01:40

alex--can't I better make backups now?01:41
urlin2ualex--, your in admin then in the search type disk man, and you will see the partitioner show.01:42

urlin2ualex--, open it and right click the C partition and follow the stuff on exspanding, been awile sisnce I have done this part.01:43
osmosisshould I use evolution or claws for a imap mail client?01:44

Sylarsoftmy settings of xchat http://imagebin.org/16992901:45

urlin2ualex--, look here http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/windows-vista/resize-a-partition-for-free-in-windows-vista/01:45
alex--urlin2u: I did that in ubuntu01:46
alex--Now i have empty space01:46
alex--non allocated01:46
alex--Can I create 'eenvoudig volume' on that space?01:46
urlin2ualex--, so you wanted the C partition back to its original size, but your still in the quandry of having to remove a partition to install Ubuntu unless you just do a wubi install.01:46
alex--Wait01:47
alex--Hmm01:47
alex--Can I use the non allocated part now in windows to make partition for ubuntu?01:47
urlin2ualex--, only if you remove one of the other primaries.01:47
sagacialex--, yeah, should be able to01:47
urlin2usagaci, no he has 4 primaries01:48
sagacican only have 4 primary partitions01:48
sagaciah ok01:48
alex--can i create a secondary partition for ubuntu?01:48
alex--In windows I can click 'simple volume'01:48

OnlyodinWhat about converting the disk to a GPT disk?01:49
urlin2uOnlyodin, not for ubuntu01:49
alex--I have something like this: http://www.extend-partition.com/resource/images/extend-system-partition-windows-7/delete-d-partition.gif01:49
urlin2ustupid idea as well01:49
alex--look at the black unallocated01:49
alex--urlin2u: What are the disadvantages of wubi?01:50
sagacialex--, reduced performance01:50
alex--sagaci: how much?01:51
urlin2ualex--, not designed for long term use, only 30 gigs, and if you let a grub upadte go to the mbr it can be difficult to fix.01:51
alex--urlin2u: What do you suggest then, for long term use?01:51
OnlyodinUbuntu has supported GPT disks since 8.04, what's wrong with using GPT?01:51
urlin2ualex--, removing a primary01:51
sagacialex--, try installing it to a flash drive01:51
alex--sagaci: I messed a 8 gb usb stick up with that01:52
urlin2uor a flash is good01:52
urlin2uOnlyodin, yeah yeah, but we are trying to help someone that can't understand some basic stuff here a gpt;is a gpt rwally a good idea here?01:53
urlin2uOnlyodin, besides gpt was not asked for, and is just your idea.01:54
OnlyodinI would have thought converting the disk to GPT would be the simplest way to go forward, but it's only a suggestion.01:54
OnlyodinGPT would allow the user to create a new primary partition without deleting any of the existing partitions. Isn't that what the user is asking for?01:55
urlin2uOnlyodin, a extended partion would hold a unlimited amout of NTFS shared and any linux now you tell me01:55
OnlyodinYeah it would, but it also requires deleting the partition in order to replace it.01:55
alex--Can I change 1 primary partition in a secondary one?01:55
urlin2uOnlyodin, this channel is not for gpt it is a ubuntu channel I have never seen anybody but you suggest it, and y9our just muddying up a sistuation you have nothing to do with do you know the definition of boundaries.01:56
qinSweet.01:57
urlin2ualex--, you can delete one and make a extended. What your suggesting, s an attempt to save dat?01:58
urlin2uis/data01:58
alex--urlin2u: I will start making my backups now01:58
OnlyodinI do, and I also know the definition of simple, a concept that you seem to be ignoring.  Anyway, it was only a suggestion, there's no need to arc up and start flaming me for no good reason.01:59
alex--So I can recover whole disk01:59
alex--When something goes wrong01:59
urlin2ualex--, cool make the recovery disc that is a very needed tool01:59
alex--I dont have cd's01:59
urlin2uOnlyodin, stop arguing you made suggestion, the user is not interested let it go.02:00
alex--Onlyodin: I dont have the experience for the GPT02:00
owen1how to enable middle click on macbook touchpad?02:01
urlin2ualex--, that recovery disc is very important, it will get yo to the recovery area if needed, for example to reinstall the backup.02:01
alex--urlin2u: no, my bios has some kind of boot to go to recovery partition02:01
urlin2ualex--, if your windows is damaged enough you wont get there, you will need  a bootable recovery or install disc02:03

urlin2ualex--, http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/products/features/backup-and-restore02:05
alex--urlin2u: I have backup software :)02:05
urlin2ualex--, okay do you have a recovery disc I can't explain this any better. For example lets say you want the MS boot back in the mbr, you eed a recovery or install disc for that.02:07
Polahar4more: We can probably answer most questions you may have.02:08
urlin2ualex--, go ahead and disregard this for the cost of a 25 cent cd, and lose the windows, it is possible that this could happen.02:08
alex--urlin2u: 3 dvd's02:08
urlin2ualex--, the backup discs wont boot as the recovery does.02:09

Polahiluminator101, 11.01 has no netbook edition. It's also not stable yet.02:21

Polahiluminator101: I imagine snapdragon processors are supported through some kernel additions  if not natively02:25
urlin2uiluminator101, you thinking of getting the HP touch pad?02:25
iluminator101urlin2u, i have one02:26
urlin2uiluminator101, ah I think Polah is correct it is a newer processor I think, so the web may be your source of info really.02:27

rosstaylorpolah: one sec please02:30
rosstaylorpolah: lol i type the wrong thing in02:30
qinarchuser: And startx do not produce errs? Does failsafe booting (or restarting gdm) give any clues, since this looks like gdm cannot start properly, so it looks like dbus.02:30
rosstaylordoes anyone here have experience using lifenet?02:30
urlin2urosstaylor, lifenet health?02:31
urlin2ucrisis line rosstaylor02:32
rosstaylorurlin2u: lifenet for communicating when the network is down02:32
rosstaylorurlin2u: i have recently encountered this due to the fact that the hurricane caused the cell network to be down and such02:33
rosstaylorurlin2u: lifenet appears to be functioning in times of crisis02:33
rosstaylorso i was wondering if anyone has any experience using it02:33
urlin2urosstaylor, you okay though, not really a ubuntu topic, but we would be concerned for you safety.02:34
rosstaylorurlin2u: ok - are there other ways to communicate (ubuntu software?) when the infrastructure is down?02:34
urlin2urosstaylor, not without internet.02:35
RA_drchello, why do my arrow keys in ubuntu work as navigation keys instead of cursor keys02:35

alex--Who can I contact if I want some changes in Ubuntu02:38
aeon-ltd /j ubuntu-dev02:38
urlin2uphoton, must be a miracle.02:39
photonurlin2u: I'm worried the formatting didn't work correctly.02:39
qinphoton: Propably 11.04 just wrote partition table (since hd was empty tere is nothing to check or overwrite), then 10.04 have seen partiton table and had to "reformat" it.02:40
kuchikui think ubuntu should join forces with android to make a better os02:40
urlin2uphoton, look at the drive with a gui parttioner.02:40

mgjUbuntu is for PC's. Android is for phones. Why the hell are you comparing the two?02:43
scxb) Nvidia GeForce 320M02:43
luigiscx: Intel. Always intel.02:43
scxc) NVIDIA GeForce 9400M?02:43
luigiscx: See previous messages.02:43
scxluigi: why Intel? why not Nvidia?02:43
urlin2ukuchiku, I think ubuntu should make me coffee in the morning, lite my cig, and pay all my bills independently02:44
luigiIntel has superb kernel support. nVidia has proprietary drivers that can be awful with certain cards and can have erratic issues.02:44
urlin2ukuchiku, do yu know how wealthy the main man at Ubuntu is?02:44
kuchikumgj , hehehe , android now on tablet pc02:45
luigiscx: intel supports linux as a real OS. nvidia support linux as a pet project.02:45

kuchikumgj , android is a tablet pc os and i'm not comparing the two02:48

luigiscx: VIA is okay, but really intel is the best choice.02:49
luigiscx: Intel is one of the few companies that writes good linux drivers in parallel with other platforms.02:49
mgjkuchiku, you said that ubuntu and android should join forces to create THE ULTIMATE OS. Which, honestly, is retarded02:49

Chris_0076hey, I was wondering why my gnome-panel was taking up 100% cpu, any thoughts? (just upgraded to 11.04 about 2 days ago)02:56
Chris_0076also this last time I logged in 4 process of it were spawned02:57
qinChris_0076: Are you using Classic or unity.02:57
Chris_0076classic02:57
Chris_0076I tried unity but I just cant get used to it02:58
qinChris_0076: First try: gnime-panel --replace02:58
qin*gnome-panel02:58
RA_drcurlin2u: thanks for your help02:58
RA_drchello, why do my arrow keys in ubuntu work as navigation keys instead of cursor keys02:58
dooglusqin: sorry for the delay - I was rebooting to see how ssh-agent usually gets started, and what's happening in my case02:58
Saeidhi , How do I adjust my brightness  on my  lcd (lxde) ?02:58
Chris_0076qin, ok, now what?02:58
dooglusqin: it turns out that the xinitrc file is running 'ssh-agent -s' as normal, and it's setting SSH_AGENT_PID and SSH_AUTH_SOCK in my environment, as it could, but by the time I get to run a terminal, the ssh-agent process has died02:59
qinRA_drc: In what application?02:59
qinChris_0076: check in htop what it does now.02:59
dooglusqin: at the moment, for example, I see "SSH_AGENT_PID=1866" in my environment, but there is no process with ID 186602:59
dooglusqin: if I run 'ssh-agent -s', the ssh-agent process dies instantly02:59
Chris_00760% cpu now03:00
Chris_0076^^03:00
Chris_0076well... um that was not a good idea03:01
Chris_0076I closed the terminal that i typed gnome-panel --replace in and now it is all gone >.>03:01

Raweedhey im trying to install ubuntu onto an external hdd, i have created 3 partions, of size 30gb(/), 8gb(RAMx1/2) and 160(/Home). they are ext4 types. Does it matter that there is 750gb ntfs type which i want to use for other files from windows? and if not where do i install ubuntu (on /, /home or RAMx1/2) and what do i put as "device for boot loafer installation"? thanks in advance03:03
qindooglus: messages and syslog03:03
qindooglus: just grep ssh03:03
dooglusqin: interesting.  /var/log/auth.log: Aug 27 20:03:16 localhost ssh-agent[2754]: error: setrlimit RLIMIT_CORE: Operation not permitted03:03
dooglusqin: if I run 'ssh-agent -d', it works fine03:04
dooglusqin: but that's no use for automated setup, 'cos I have to copy/paste the SSH_AUTH_SOCK into each terminal03:04
Chris_0076ok, thank you very much qin. ^^03:04

dooglusqin: they say it's a kernel bug03:06
dooglusqin: could it be my kernel is too old?03:06
dooglusI have Linux vikki-old 2.6.37-12-generic-pae #26-Ubuntu SMP Wed Jan 5 19:00:12 UTC 2011 i686 athlon i386 GNU/Linux03:06
dooglusoh, I remember - all 2.6.38 kernels cause this laptop to freeze regularly, so I use the newest 2.6.37 one03:07
qindooglus: Same kernel and bug filled for red hat03:08
Raweedcan ANYONE help?03:08
dooglusqin: thanks for the help!  this is the 3rd time I've tried to get help with the problem and you're the first to point me at looking at the logs :)03:08

ruffleShi there guys.. i can't create a live usb of oneiric from windows, i've tried unetbootin and also extracting .iso files into the usb flash disk using winrar but i got no luck. can anyone help me out with this?03:09

qinRaweed: ntfs do not matter, make sure to install grub in external hd not main one, anyway bast to remove (or power off) internal hd for installation03:11
djmasterso im trying to do terminal coding for colors how?03:12
bao__hello03:13
Raweedqin: yes but there are 3 partitions which one do i select, or do i just select the whole thing? kinda of a newbie. and what do i select for boot loader installation, ? and how do i turn of internal hd?03:13
qindjmaster: http://tldp.org/LDP/abs/html/colorizing.html03:13
djmasterqin thx03:13
qinRaweed: Same one where is / and /boot03:13
ruffleScan anyone help me create a (oneiric daily build) live usb from windows? unetbootin ain't working and extracting files into the USB flash drive doesn't work either03:13
Raweedwin: thanks and i select the whole hd for the installation not just a single partition?03:14
hopeUna pregunta..??03:15
wildbatRaweed: when the installer ask you where to install pick manual. there will be a list of partition ~ select the 30GB and pick ext4, format. use as /, the 8GB linux swap, the rest /home ext403:15
ruffleS!es hope03:15
dooglusqin: I've been updating regularly.  I just put a line in the grub config to always boot into the old kernel03:15
qinruffleS: Not sure thisis supported here on in #ubuntu+1, as far as i know you need specific files form working M$ system to create live-usb. but #windows will be better help.03:15
hopeInstale el aMule pero no veo donde descarga los archivos , ni tampoco localizo los temporales ,, alguien me puede audar03:15

ruffleSqin thanks03:16
qinRA_drc: Right, not really use firefox.03:16
dooglusqin: now I'll wait and see if this new kernel freezes.  I've not bothered reporting a bug because it would be too vague to be worth doing.  "this laptop freezes after a random amount of time if I use any 2.6.38 kernel" - what's anyone going to do with that?03:16
RA_drcqin: thanks anyways03:17

chavoMrWilly: hit F103:31
MrWillychavo, lemme give that a shot03:31

centHOGGMrWilly: any peripherals hanging you up?03:36
MrWillyafter hitting F1 to see what's going on, it got to the point where it "locks."  what I actually see is some repeated text scrolling past the screen over and over, so quickly that I can't read it03:36
MrWillycentHOGG, only things connected are a keyboard, monitor, USB mouse and the wireless NIC03:37

JamezQqwaz: So if I am in, /home/qwaz/Documents/ , and I chroot to where I am at, I am now in "/" . So If I go into a subfolder stuff, I am in /stuff and not /home/qwas/Documents/stuff04:21

mouseartypig78, You could change it to a ftp server since running the ftp protocol in a browser usually displays the directory.04:57

guest09230932qin, thanks btw05:01
Galindarmouse:  i had no problem with older versions of ubuntu. it just started after i upgraded to 11.04 the monitor kept giving me "out of range" when i booted up pc. so i installed Startup-Manager. but it does not seem to keep the settings i set in it all the time. i end up logging in,logging out, and then logging back in and that corrects the disply resolution. but i would really like something that works everytime.05:02

bullgard6daniel Its name is simply "Backup".05:11

bazhangmr_e_panda, get libdvdcss2 from medibuntu.org06:30
muktiHowever, I cannot see them in /dev/audio06:30
muktiinfact, /dev/audio does not exist06:30
muktidoes anyone know why this is?06:30
mr_e_pandai've already installed the restricted extras and done the extra step on the terminal06:33
bazhangmr_e_panda, get the package from medibuntu.org as I suggested?06:33
zykotick9mr_e_panda, dvd playback isn't in restricted-extras06:33
mr_e_pandanot yet. i thought it was installed when you installed libdvdread406:34
mr_e_pandaworking on getting it06:34
muktiDoes anyone know why my microphones are not appearing in /dev/audio? Or are they supposed to appear somewhere else?06:35
mr_e_pandai've always done that when installing libdvdread4 with past releases06:35
rhin0mukti - try 'alsamixer' from bash shell if you like -- I recall that has microphone controls on it -- mahybe it will get you up and running06:35
urlin2umr_e_panda, https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Medibuntu06:35
rhin0its a good sound control utility -- controls all inputs/outputs - well presented06:35
zykotick9mr_e_panda, FYI the libdvdread4 package actually just installs libdvdcss2 from medibuntu06:36
rhin0mukti: at least you can check from that whether your system has microphone configured at all06:36
mr_e_pandaright. i downloaded it and it says it's already installed06:37
Geoffrey2I have an application I recently updated, and it looks like the name of the desktop file changed slightly...how can i check to see which version ubuntu is trying to load?06:37
mr_e_pandalibdvdcss2 actually06:37
zykotick9mr_e_panda, then run the install script06:37
muktiCould i be listed in /proc/asound ?06:37
mr_e_pandaso reinstall it then?06:38
muktiI couldnt see them in alsamixer?06:38
rhin0Geoffrey2: you can right click on the icon and within "properties" you will find what it calls06:38
zykotick9mr_e_panda, after install you have to run a script06:38
mr_e_pandawhat script do i run?06:38
zykotick9mr_e_panda, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RestrictedFormats/PlayingDVDs06:38
rhin0mukti sounds like your system may not be configured for the mic06:39
mr_e_pandayes i've already run that script06:39
muktirhin0: I can use the sound recorder, and it will playback what I record06:39
mr_e_pandastill no dice06:39
rhin0sorry ask someone else no expert on  sound - F2 within "alsamixer" giver you the paths to the sound devices etc06:39
muktiI just don't know where to find it in the filesystem06:39
zykotick9mr_e_panda, i know it's not very gnu/linux like - but i've always had to restart my systems to get it to work?06:40

Ramseizehello guys, is there a way to limit bind9 memory?06:47
mr_e_pandamplayer is the default installed player right?06:47

Geoffrey2mr_e_panda, Fluendo has a native linux DVD player.....it costs money, and it's closed source, which is probably a turnoff for some...but I've used it for over a year now.....06:47
mr_e_pandalet me bring it up06:47
zykotick9mr_e_panda, media player != mplayer, no they aren't even close to the same, don't worry about mplayer.  What error are you currently getting?06:48

philipballew*wrong06:52
zykotick9philipballew, what card "lspci | grep -i vga" if you aren't sure.06:52
urlin2umr_e_panda, try more than one dvd, there is also vlc which has a lot and will probably play the dvd's, and I also suggest w32 codecs, as additional stuff to have installed06:52
mr_e_pandavlc does not work either, i've tried round 5 diff dvds06:53

zykotick9mr_e_panda, w64codecs is a package from medibuntu06:54

philipballewgaelfx, how does this better over trying one of the other 3. also how do i install it07:03

Astrologywhich command can set my ubuntu's system time ?07:31
Astrologyif that command can open a GUI setting, it is better07:32
urlin2uJoeR1, so my thumb loaded using unetbootin did not work, this is why I use a cd, yes I rember you don't have one.07:33
JoeR1urlin2u, I have an alternate idea or two07:33
urlin2uJoeR1, okay.:D07:33
bullgard6Astrology: In GNOME 2, click on the applet Time&Date , then Clock Preferences , then Time Settings.07:34
JoeR1well shall see if I am successful07:34
JoeR1brb07:34
Astrologybullgard6: very sorry, I am under awesome, that's why I ask for a command to set time.07:34
bullgard6Astrology: Next time you better place a more precise question in this channel.07:35
Astrologybullgard6: ok, my fault.07:35
zykotick9Astrology, installing ntpdate then using "ntpdate NTPSERVER" might be easiest solution07:35

Astrologyzykotick9: Thanks very much07:36
zykotick9Astrology, NTP = Network Time Protocol, this synchronizes your time with a server online07:36

defendguinis it possible to get a iso for 11.10?  i'd like to give it a spin running form a usb drive07:41
zykotick9defendguin, i'd check the topic of #ubuntu+107:42
zykotick9defendguin, i hear it's a hybrid ISO/USB - so you should be able to just cat/dd it to USB now.07:43

jaybuttshow do u show buddy list with this empathy thingamajig07:45
zykotick9jaybutts, my personal recommendation would be to use a real IRC client for IRCing  - xchat is a popular GUI client, while irssi is popular CLI client07:46
jaybuttsserver down need to send message07:46
bullgard6!alsa | alex_under07:46
ubottualex_under: If you're having problems with sound, click the Volume applet, then Sound Preferences, and check your Volume, Hardware, Input, and Output settings.  If that fails, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Sound - https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SoundTroubleshooting - http://alsa.opensrc.org/DmixPlugin - For playing audio files,  see !players and !mp3.07:46
jaybuttspidgin &07:47
oooaaaooohi guys i have a quick question about the encrypted volume option when i first installed ubuntu; how do i get the passphrase again after the initial first boot reminder?07:48
jaybuttszykotick9: your suggesting I shouldn't use irssi?07:49
alex_underbullgard6: well, the problem is that sound worked, but the mic didn't .... now I have no sound and no mic and I want to reinstall the old alsa as it was.07:49
zykotick9jaybutts, it's popular with the cli types, not my fav - but you might LOVE it?  I'm not for or against it.07:49
jaybuttsyea thats what im using07:49
jaybuttsIm have empathy for jabber07:50
scottjzykotick9: if you're not for us you're against us :)07:50
jaybuttsbut I can't get the buddy list to show up07:50
alex_underbullgard6: if I try to remove alsa-base it says that it marks ubuntu-desktop, too07:50
jaybuttsI normally use pidgin07:50
urlin2uoooaaaooo, ecryptfs-unwrap-passphrase  in the terminal07:50
zykotick9scottj, i'm all for cli, but irssi isn't my thing - i find it very limited compared to xchat, but that's just me ;)07:50
jaybuttswhat do you mean by cli types?07:51
zykotick9jaybutts, CLI = command line interface (ie text)07:51
bullgard6alex_under: What have youdone that you havew no longer sound?07:51
bullgard6-w07:51
jaybuttsoh ok07:51
oooaaaooourlin2u: thanks. Its asking em for the passphrase...?07:51
alex_underbullgard6: tried to install realtek alsa07:51
tomaszlo07:51
urlin2uoooaaaooo, you mean the password.07:51
tomaszhello07:51
jaybuttsyes I work with linux for a living so I prefer consoel07:51
oooaaaooorootzilla@minizilla:~$ ecryptfs-unwrap-passphrase07:51
oooaaaoooPassphrase:07:51
jaybuttsconsoel=cli07:52
urlin2uoooaaaooo, right you use the password that was originally used, generally the user password07:53
oooaaaooourlin2u: did it mean to say su password when it asks for passphrase? Will there be any adverse effects if i put in the wrong password/phrase?07:53
oooaaaooourlin2u: i.e. will i be locked out/07:53
urlin2uoooaaaooo, no use the regular user password07:53
jaybuttsthis fancy xwindows and ubuntu stuff is weird for me usually use windows on desktop but im in a shell 12 hours a day minimum07:53
urlin2uoooaaaooo, this ecryptfs-unwrap-passphrase  then your user password07:54
Zaknafein89i need help07:54
oooaaaooourlin2u: yup07:54
zykotick9!ask | Zaknafein8907:54
attjHi, I downloaded ubuntu 11.04 64-bit from ubuntu.com, burned to CD and installed my computer. Ubuntu won't start after all this so i went to recovery mode and typed apt-get update & upgrade & dist-upgrade. But still ubuntu won't start, all it does is flashing the screen with ubuntu logo and those dots.07:54
Zaknafein89can't connect to ircnet from epathy??07:54
Zaknafein89empathy*07:54
Zaknafein89freenode connect's just fine..07:55
ubottuZaknafein89: 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. :-)07:55
gaelfxZaknafein89: that is unfortunately correct07:55
Zaknafein89so.. no fix?07:55
zykotick9attj, you might want to try the nomodeset kernel option, "/msg ubottu nomodeset" to see the factoid07:55
gaelfxZaknafein89: oops, sorry, I misread that, I'm not really sure07:56
jaybuttshow do you show the buddy list for empathy07:56
bullgard6alex_under: I do not know much about realtek specifics. -- You might invoke as a first try '~$ alsamixer' and analyze for wrong settings.07:56
Zaknafein89favorites and ungrouped07:56
ThelmariaCan I specify from ubuntu the next boot device in grub? I duel-boot, and from power-on->grub is a few minutes I have to wait if I don't want to boot into the default option.07:58
alex_underbullgard6: cannot open mixer: no such device07:58
urlin2uattj, you get the nomodeset option figured out?07:58
alex_underbullgard6: isn't a 'magic way' to return to default ? if I can't use the built-in mic, at least the sound :|07:59
bullgard6alex_under: Check with Synaptic if you have installeda package named gnome-alsamixer.08:00
attjurlin2u, not yet :)08:00
alex_underbullgard6: it's installed08:00
attjI have i5 cpu and ati graphic card if that matters08:01
bullgard6alex_under: This is a very general question. The most general way to return to default is to install Ubuntu anew. -- this is hardly what you want.08:01
Moshanatorthe1maria, try "grub-reboot #" where # is number of your grub entry08:01
urlin2uattj, you can use the recovery at the grub menu and choose failsafe in the next gui as well same thing basically08:01
ThelmariaMoshanator: Thanks very much indeed.08:02
zykotick9Moshanator, wow that's neat, thanks08:02
fastaWhich files determine which users are on a system?08:03
fastaThere is /etc/shadow, /etc/shadow- and?08:03
alex_underbullgard6: so that's the only way?08:03
zykotick9fasta, /etc/passwd actually?  /etc/shadow is the encrypted password files08:03
bullgard6alex_under: If alsamixer returns: "cannot open mixer: no such device" then your sound configuration is severly out of order. --  If that fails, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Sound - https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SoundTroubleshooting08:04
C0oLhi guys08:05
C0oLcan I ask a quick question?08:05
attjthanks, that failsafe helped. Now i can see the desktop :)08:05
zykotick9bullgard6, i'm afraid alex_under attempt to use a 3rd party ALSA may be difficult to correct.  How to uninstall that 3rd party version may be non-trivial.08:05
C0oLis it possible to install a distro upgrade from an iso file on a netbook?08:06
Moshanator!ask > C0ol08:06
ubottuC0ol, please see my private message08:06

zykotick9GreenCloud, install ubuntu, install openssh-server, forward port 22 on your router to the machine - "should" be about it.08:08
fastazykotick9: what is the point of the /etc/shadow- file?08:09
C0oL is it possible to install a distro upgrade from an iso file on a netbook?08:09
zykotick9fasta, I'm not sure what the shadow- does?08:09

Thelmariaurlin2u, zykotick9 - heh, figured. Thanks though :)08:15
neokxi just trying to get in ubuntu08:16
zykotick9neokx, 9.04 is no longer supported, you should download a newer (supported) version of ubuntu.  But Wubi is junk IN MY OPINION ONLY!08:16
urlin2ulol I'm with you08:16

neokxi tink is because i have windows 708:17

zykotick9alex_under, uninstall/reinstall typically doesn't do much (if anything) on gnu/linux boxes08:20
oooaaaooourlin2u: hey another question. so i have the passphrase for a certain encrypted volume, and i would likt to mount it so that i can access all of the data within it. Would the following be sufficient: "sudo mount -t ecryptfs  XXX.desktop" ?08:20
urlin2uoooaaaooo, I only know how far we have gotten, not trying to mount it.08:21

anonissimusIs there a way I can mount my drives on boot based on drive id instead of /dev/sd**09:41
rhin0make an nfs mount?  you can create an nfs mount which mounts a volume of the same machine anonissimus09:43
rhin0so you create what is in effect a symbolic mount point09:43
anonissimuswill performance be the same?09:43
rhin0its just a volume yes it's the same -- I don't think you can reference /dev/sda1 for example you can reference a mapped volume ... yes it is the same09:44
rhin0set up your exports file with localhost or 127.0.0.1 as the machine to export to09:44

th0rPang5: there is no easy way09:56
Pang5th0r; thanks09:56
SlartPang5: tried checkinstall?09:56
Pang5slart; ok09:57
Slart!checkinstall | Pang509:57
ubottuPang5: checkinstall is a wrapper to "make install", useful for installing programs you compiled. It will create a .deb package, which will be listed in the APT database and can be uninstalled like other packages. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/CheckInstall - Read the warnings at the top and bottom of that web page, and DO NOT interrupt CheckInstall while it's running!09:57
AquixDon't think checkinstall can make deb, just install like it was a deb09:57
SlartAquix: it creates a deb .. not sure if it installs it as well.. but it definately creates the deb-file09:58
th0rSlart: but first you have to undo the tar.bz, configure, and compile. Which, I think, takes it out of the easy category <smile>09:59
Slartth0r: well.. the second you include "compile" in the instructions we're out of easy-land, if you ask me =)10:00

bazhangRomeoava, use unetbootin and a flash usb stick to do it12:12
xanguatheadmin: why would not¿12:12
bazhangtheadmin, it certainly works fine.12:12

bazhangRomeoava, thats fine, or unetbootin; you have to hold down the esc key until the bios boot screen shows, to choose the usb stick to boot, and after selecting it as well.12:14

snuffti'm having a problem sharing folders with Samba and with mounting drives. i've permanently mounted the two drives that the sahred folders are on, using  storage device manager (PySDM?) and the icons for both drives now appear on the desktop when i log into the machine. the only problem is that until i actually double click both drives to open them, samba can't seem to see them.12:21
theadminActionParsnip: I wouldn't worry about that, I get highlighted correctly12:21
* theadmin has to go12:21
Romeoava<theadmin> I'm an Ubuntu fan12:22
snufftthen the other thing is that when i have double clicked these drives and samba can recognise them (so that you can play with permissions through Samba Server Configuration), although windows users can see the folders that I've shared, they can't go into any of them.12:23

icerootjutta: maybe change the keyboard-type because i am on a asus eeepc13:01
icerootjutta: i was having the same problem but only with lxde13:01
juttaiceroot, I will try, but do you know why it does not work to remove?13:03
icerootjutta: the problem (on lxde) was that it is trying to aqutodetect the keyboard with udev and udev is telling my system that i have a qwerty keyboard. so i put that into xorg.conf to overwrite the udev-settings13:04
icerootjutta: lxde is not storing the layout i choose. dont know what gnome is doing13:04

Stoopiti installed ubuntu 11.04 in a virtualbox virtual machine, i installed the guest addons (or whats it called, i use a Dutch virtualbox)13:23

Stoopitany ideas?13:23
yeatsStoopit: you might ask in #vbox13:24
zayedthanks you both Gentoo64 and actionparsnip13:24

Gentoo64Stoopit, well ubuntu cant control vbox13:24
zayedhey no need to be sorry it is like that  we learn from each other13:25
StoopitGentoo64, that's like saying a car can't have problems with its parts13:25

debaimboHello everyone. Today my Ubuntu 10.04 doesnt work, and I am sure I havent done anything strange yesterday. When I get to the grub screen, If I select any of the Ubuntu entries it just waits... and waits... and then spits out a list of errors, like it can't read sda and stuff. But if I select the windows entry that OS works fine. Right now I am using the Ubuntu live-cd and from here I can see all the files in my hard disk13:51
yeatsdebaimbo: I would boot into a live CD and run fsck on the Ubuntu partition13:54

MrCollinsI have a toshiba laptop, Vista installed, trying to install Ubuntu 11.04 from a burned dvd iso, 500GB disk, when I get to the partition resizing section it seems to hang forever...

Grey_LokiBaraman: in situations like that, in the past i've found that checking the CD for defects before trying to boot from it can be quite useful.15:14
Baramanok, thanks a lot, may be my image had something wrong15:14
MrCollinsSkummel, Phylock: ok Will do. I let the resize run over night. Is there some feature of NTFS version that Vista uses that causes the Ubuntu partition program to hang?15:14
JlaoShithe screen resolution is incorrect (1024x768)15:15

o0splitpaw0ovolga629, I'd run sudo apt-get -f install. anything damaged or misisng will be pulled, but from those massaged, accessing ca.ubuntu.com timing out  I assume a network side issue. not on your side, but to that url whereever it's trying to pull that update from16:35

glebihanglaucous, that is precisely what dpkg tries to do when you get the error about the status area, and that's why you won't be able to "install" without root privileges16:59

glaucousglebihan: Yes I do understand that, the --root options should be able to help me here, but no luck there either17:00
glaucoussimple, I don't have any root permissions17:00
antonio_ciao17:00
ActionParsnipglaucous: so you aren't in the admin group?17:00
glebihanglaucous, no the --root option only allows to install in the different location than the default one, it does not change where the dpkg status files are located17:00
theadminglaucous: Well, you can't modify the APT/DPKG databases without those17:00
jribglaucous: simple solution is to just ask the admin to install the packages you want17:01
glaucousThought I'd be able to have a separate DB, but I guess not17:02
glaucousActionParsnip: No I'm not17:03
ActionParsnipglaucous: unlucky17:03
glaucousyup.. but I got some applications working by editing LD_LIBRARY_PATH at least17:04

Sogorukuhn1Hi @ all18:31
Sonarpulsebasically it says to use software raid + a loopbacked mbr to fake a 1 partition disk for qemu18:31
Tixos so, anybody else have input on my question ?18:31
Sonarpulseuse mdadm to append a small mbr-sized loopback to the front of your partition18:32
Sonarpulseand uses fdisk to make a new mbr on the loopback18:32
Sonarpulsehowever it looks like you are just supposed to hop that fdisk only writes to your loopback18:32
Sogorukuhn1I need some help. The sound is gone. The cardes are normally detected, mixer is ok, alsa and pulse seems to be ok. aplay works fine, like everything is ok. But still no sound18:33

WebETGUser151hey guys18:36
watchedmanwhat would be an ideal partitioning scheme?18:36
watchedmani'm wondering if there'd be benefits to having /swap or /home on a different drive than /18:36
SIFTUwatchedman: I would software Raid + LVM personally18:36
WebETGUser151how hard is it to build a beowolf cluster using ubuntu?18:37
watchedmanSIFTU, I am worried that there will be problems with recording big audio streams (multitrack 96khz/24bit) with that setup...18:37
Sonarpulsewatchedman: open your DAW or whatever18:37
Sonarpulsefigure out were things are put by default18:37
Sonarpulseand mount your harddrives to those directorys18:38
watchedmani would do that if i already had the OS installed but I don't18:38
SIFTUwatchedman: so you want performance or redundancy?18:38

Sonarpulse@SIFTU you see my question? also about disk related stuff18:39
secspycan i upgrade to maverick using apt-get dist-upgrade? currently on lucid18:39
watchedmani basically want to have one drive dedicated just to be the destination for live audio recording, and then have the other three shared among /, /home, /swap, and storage space18:40
SIFTUget rid of the IDE drive.. or use it for backups.. get another SATA and make RAID 1+0, put LVM on top of it so you can expand your partitons at will18:40
SIFTUwatchedman: there is no redundancy there18:40
SIFTUwatchedman: and you performance is limited to what a single drive can put out18:40
watchedmanwell i would have an external e-sata drive with rsync backups of the storage18:41
E3D3_1glebihan: Thanks, I read the same but just could not believe that this is the default way.18:41
watchedmani basically don't want to take the raid plunge18:41
SIFTUSonarpulse: I have not done that sorry18:41
watchedmanin terms of buying more hardware18:41
glebihanE3D3_1, it is18:41
yeatssecspy: you have to go to System -> Administration -> Software Sources and select that you want "normal releases"18:41

zykotick9polifasio, i'm not sure your statement re: HDs is even accurate18:49
polifasiowatchedman: historically, all linux distributions separate /home from the rest of the system. It was only until Lindows (later Linspire), and later Ubuntu, that it is placed all in one.18:49
secspythanks for the site yeats18:49
watchedmanok i'm starting to understand this. so if i want to not deal with LVM or RAID, but have a 'poor man' logical separation between good performing hard drive space and performance-unimportant storage space on a bunch of HDD's, i can just partition each one and put what i want to perform well as the first partition of each?18:49

zykotick9watchedman, personally i don't think Software Raid and/or LVM will be much benefit, and will certainly add a significant level of complexity to your setup.  Good luck, whatever you choose.18:52
watchedmanE3D3_1 I read that sharing /home among OS's is risky because many system settings are stored in /home18:52

zykotick9watchedman, watch your TAB completion "z yko" might not like being thanked :)18:53
drakos,,,18:53
polifasioE3D3_1: yes and no. It is comparatively easy to separate it. However, using one /home with different versions and different distributions would be troublesome, unless you stuck to the bare basics.18:54

E3D3_1polifasio: You mean a whole OS without GUI or just the installation/move-procedures ?18:57
polifasioE3D3_1: for /home to work between different distros? nowadays you would need to stick pretty much to the command line. Most graphical environments have customizations for distros.18:59
[THC]AcidRainwhat channel do i ask for hardware support?18:59

[THC]AcidRainthe only markings on it is AM2++19:00
polifasioE3D3_1: for moving it to another partition? it is just a matter of having the new partition ready, and moving the info (THIS CANNOT BE DONE WHILE LOGGED IN).19:00
zykotick9[THC]AcidRain, i don't think so, the chipsets used probably, but the mobo itself - don't think so19:00

Slartzykotick9: ah.. thanks.. didn't know that19:15
bashelinazykotick9,  Hey i found another way to solve it19:15
TyrantWhen creating a shared library using ld, how do I also link it to another static or shared library, such as libusb?19:15

dylan13I repaired the bootloader but it still won't start up in windows19:16
jake_everytime i try to install flash it said it fails19:16

zykotick9ezeql, installing the driver from nvidia.com isn't recommended/supported here - you should consider using the drivers provided by Ubuntu19:18

SIFTUGrey_Loki: killed it?19:29
jerry_ZYKOTICK  .. Thanks ... I know where the problem lies ... I just don't know how to fix it.  It is preventing me me from downloading any software or updating packages.19:29
dylan13So can anyone point me in the right direction? I repaired the bootloader and it still won't boot into windows.19:30
SIFTUgreenit: killed it?19:30
zykotick9rodhash, just guessing, but you'd probably need to update all of xorg to use that driver - probably NOT what you want.19:30
greenitSIFTU, yeah, probably because the 270 driver was inscribed, but i replaced it by the 280 driver19:30
MerlinuxHmm19:30
SIFTUgreenit: ah ok.. so is it all working now?19:30
MerlinuxI'm having problems with my wlan..19:30
Moshanatorjerry_, any reason for wanting that specific version?19:31
greenitSIFTU, yes, but not fluently, the computer is lagging when i run them19:31

jerry_E:Malformed line 59 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list (dist parse), E:Malformed line 1 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list.d/apticons.list (dist parse)19:31

bashelinarodhash,  no im stuck with maverick , cant upgrade to natty :(19:34
jerry_So if I go to paste.ubuntu.com the text will appear here?19:34
greenitSIFTU, only 2 of the cores are on 100%19:34
rodhashbashelina: Oh, I got it.. In my case I'm not upgrading to natty... I'm just upgrading the vide driver, used in natty19:35
SIFTUgreenit: lol thats bad19:35
Flanneljerry_: You paste stuff into that page, then it'll give you a url, which you give to people here19:35
SIFTUgreenit: run top in a terminal as see whats using it all19:35
jerry_ahhhh thanks ... got it :)19:35
urlin2ujerry_, if you run in the terminal cat /etc/apt/sources.list  you will see the list in the terminal, if you run sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list you will get a read and write pastebin ethier. http://paste.ubuntu.com/ you also a have a /etc/apt/sources.list.d  you can look at for the other error19:35
bashelinarodhash,  but does to regular natty intel driver work any good ?19:35
rodhashbashelina: I found something saying yes.. on bug reports19:36
ActionParsnipbashelina: its pretty good here19:36
greenitSIFTU, 100% glxgears, 49% Xorg, 46% compiz19:37

slinzexHi all, I'm using wifi usb device CT-WN4322Z. On the off site the link to download driver is not available for linux now. I always thinked that it was zydas chipset, but now I saw the cover... How to obtain the latest and best driver for ubuntu?19:39
SIFTUgreenit: makes sense thats its lagging with CPU being hit like that19:39
greenitSIFTU, and without them compiz uses 17%19:39
rodhashGuys.. Does anyone know if I can use packages from natty or oneiric on maverick ??19:39
SIFTUgreenit: something is wrong there with the driver or something19:39
greenitSIFTU, and thats the highest usage19:39
jerry_URLIN2U  I need a little hand holding with terminal commands19:40
glebihanrodhash, you shouldn't19:40
jerry_so I type in cat, ir gedit?19:40
ActionParsniprodhash: its not advised and may break your OS but technically you can. You may make a mess of your packages, requiring a lot of work or reinstall19:40
urlin2ujerry_, no problem,  run sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list  copy and paste the whole file, and be careful you're in read write mode with it open19:41
jerry_Thanks URLIN ... From the error there are two separate files.  Do I run the command for each and post the results?19:42
SIFTUgreenit: did you ever manually install the nvidia drivers?19:42
urlin2ujerry_, lets start with the regular sources.list19:42
jerry_ok19:42
SIFTUgreenit: i.e. download them from nvidia site and install them?19:43

ActionParsniprenancoelho: shockwave don't own flash anymore, it is Adobe's  property now19:46

urlin2ujerry_, you also have a strange mixture of sources in that file including mint.19:53
zykotick9urlin2u, you're wasting your time trying to fix jerry_'s issue i'm afraid - did you see the repos in there paste?  That's a disaster.19:54
greenitany1 else has a problem with ubuntu one? it always tells me that i syncs, but it doesnt get a connection to sync... however, i am logged in through it19:54

valbergsomehow ubuntu just got too fancy and i can't just write /media/cdrom for the drive location19:55
valbergany ideas?19:55
zykotick9valberg, /media/cdrom is a mount point NOT a device!!!19:56
SciurusDoomus@Nailox do you have Cron installed? As I understand it Crontab is just tables for Cron.19:56
ActionParsnipvalberg: why bother, there are plenty of native burners19:56

nailoxSciurusDoomus yes it wasnt installed. got it now. thx19:57
ActionParsnipvalberg: and how aboutwith xfburn?19:57
zeleftikamActionParsnip, any ideas on where i should go from here?19:57
SciurusDoomusnailox No problem. Best of luck.19:57
valbergohh you're just a big bunch of jolly peeps :)19:57
zykotick9guntbert, "... Is it on IRC all the time?..." is why that's one of my favourite factoids on freenode19:57

zeleftikamActionParsnip, give me a while i'm going to work on this and get back to you if i have problems :) thanks so far20:06
ActionParsnipzeleftikam: the guide shows how to MD5 and the hashes page has the correct hashes of the images20:06
urlin2ujerry_, you have a very borked setup we can't really help to be honest.20:06
zykotick9jerry_, replacing the sources.list file isn't goint to help if you've installed stuff from the other repos20:07
zeleftikamActionParsnip, got it, the hash is identical to what Ubuntu lists20:07
Voitayes there is a button on the keyboard :) but it doesnt seem to be the issue20:07
[0xDEAD]anyone know how I get the indicator-mutliload to show up in the top panel in unity?  I've added the ppa and installed it using apt-get but I'm still trying to figure out how to get it to show up.20:07
ActionParsnipVoita: Fn+F2 enable/disables the wireless, does pressing it make it work?20:07
jerry_Gee whiz   Do you have any suggestions how I can put it right?  I am getting ready to deply to the hurricane zone and I need to get my computer working right.20:07
ActionParsnipzeleftikam: good, remember to check the image BEFORE using it, so you know you aren't working with damaged data20:08
zeleftikamgood tip20:08
Voitano sorry it doesnt... i will try to google what you told me before and get back if i dont solve it.. thanx so far :)20:08
flametai1urlin2u, I installed linux awhile ago, just no put Windows 7 as a duel boot, updated grub and it worked for about a night, came down this morning and Windows 7 was frozen so I had to do a manual shutdown, now when ever I select Windows 7 it just restarts the computer, I even tried using the repair disk.20:08
ActionParsnipVoita: then use the lshw outpupt to find guides :)20:09
ActionParsnipzeleftikam: don't worry, loads don't20:09
zeleftikamActionParsnip, loads don't?20:09
urlin2uflametai1, run this script and pastebin the RESULTS.text file  http://bootinfoscript.sourceforge.net/20:09
ActionParsnipzeleftikam: could always try the minimal ISO I guess. The server OS installs in text mode so it's a bit weird how it is screwing up20:10
LABcrabHello!  How do i write a fraction that says one-tenth in Ubuntu?  Here: ¼ ½ ¾20:10
ActionParsnipzeleftikam: could try forcing safe vga as a boot option20:10
jerry_ZYKOTICK  I think the problem might be in a back up I have.  If I do a backup and omit my APT folder.  Then do a clean install of Pinguy will that prevent the crappy source list from copying?20:10
ActionParsnipzeleftikam: loads of people don't md5 test20:11
ShimotsukeiI was wondering if anyone would be able to assist me with recovering of a hdd, a friend told me to run a live cd but didnt explain much in the way of programs for recovering it20:11
LABcrabActionParsnip: It should be automatic!20:11
ActionParsnipShimotsukei: try mounting it in liveCD, it may just be readable. tell your 'friend' to get a backup and they won't have an issue20:11
zeleftikamActionParsnip, i don't think i've ever had a problem caused by "scrambled data" in a disk image download that burned and installed just fine but didn't work in some small way later. that doesn't make much sense but i guess it's possible20:12
moegreendoes anybody else have an issue with a wireless keyboard not being able to f3 into a tty?20:12
zykotick9jerry_, sorry, I have no idea what Pinguy is.  Your best bet would be to backup your files and do a fresh install - and next time DON'T mix distro or version repositories!20:12
ActionParsnipLABcrab: it is if you use unetbootin to download the ISO and create live USB. Torrents also autocheck stuff too20:12
zeleftikamActionParsnip, i think from here i have a couple options, i could clean reinstall, this time installing ssh so i can connect to it and change the setting, or install 10.04 and live with that20:12
vltActionParsnip: LOL 'friend'20:12
ActionParsnipzeleftikam: I can give you examples of people having bad data if you want20:12
ActionParsnipvlt: ;)20:12
LABcrabHello!  How do i write a fraction that says one-tenth in Ubuntu?  Here: ¼ ½ ¾20:12
vltShimotsukei: When the hard disk has phaysical errors, I'd advise making a clone copy of it first before mounting anything.20:13
Shimotsukeiim havin the issue, my friend's the one who told me to use the live cd....It's displaying the whole drive as unallocated20:13
jerry_Zykotick  Thanks  That is what I will do.  I don't know where all the mint stuff comes from.  PINGUY is a Ubuntu based Distro20:13
ActionParsnipzeleftikam: if you are installing server then lucid server is supported longer20:13
zeleftikamLABcrab, check if such a character exists in the UTF-8 character set20:13
zeleftikamActionParsnip, yeah. i am doing a clean install to sell this machine, anyway20:13
zeleftikamit just needs to turn on properly to be sold :)20:13
LABcrabzeleftikam: Where is that?20:14
zeleftikamLABcrab, http://www.utf8-chartable.de/20:14
LABcrabzeleftikam: i get a nice box with four characters instead of my 1/10.20:14
ActionParsnipzeleftikam: that's fine, if you use lucid then the server will be supported longer than if you use natty server20:14
vltShimotsukei: I'd do the following: Boot a live CD (ubuntu or even better: something like grml.org), run ddrescue to another device (external hd, for example), then try to mount any file systems on the image or run tools like testdisk to recover some files ...20:15
LABcrabU+215220:15
zeleftikamLABcrab, hmm yeah, my Mac OS X machine won't display that character either20:15
Shimotsukeitestdisk didnt detect it.20:16
zeleftikam1/3, 2/3 etc works fine, but U+2150 through 52 are boxes20:16
vltShimotsukei: Detect what?20:16
ActionParsnipShimotsukei: could just use foremost on the damaged drive to possibly recover data20:16
jerry_Thanks for the Help guys .. I think I am going to do a backup without the bad files and then do a clean install20:16
flametai1urlin2u, http://pastebin.com/7V0b1XaU20:16
greenitSIFTU, well, same as with the other xorg.conf20:16
Shimotsukeiforemost?20:16
ActionParsnipShimotsukei: does:   sudo fdisk -l     show the device?20:16
zeleftikamLABcrab, i would guess that it's not a very widely supported character, can you avoid using it?20:16
ActionParsnipShimotsukei: yes,foremost20:16
zeleftikamLABcrab, maybe try some different fonts?20:16
tjiggi_foLABcrab, do you have a Compose Key set?20:17
LABcrabzeleftikam: Maybe.20:17
Shimotsukeiyes it lists the drive20:17
flametai1urlin2u, Seems like everything is normal????20:17
zeleftikamLABcrab, i've never seen the 1/10 character on a computer screen in my life20:17
ActionParsnipShimotsukei: then use foremost20:18
Shimotsukeibut it doesnt display any of the partition20:18
Shimotsukeiok20:18
guntbertShimotsukei: there is also a program called photorec to recover files from bad partitions20:18
LABcrabzeleftikam: What about ¹/₁₀?20:18
tjiggi_fozeleftikam, ¹/₁₀20:18
tjiggi_fosnap20:18
zeleftikamtjiggi_fo, is that one character?20:18
=== pothos_ is now known as pothos
LABcrabzeleftikam: Not it's three.20:18
LABcrabOr four.20:18
zeleftikamthat's what i thought20:19
tjiggi_fozeleftikam, no, it's using the compose key20:19
zeleftikamActionParsnip, thanks for all the info and guidance. downloading 10.04 LTS now, that will probably be fine, the display worked fine with it before20:19
zeleftikamtjiggi_fo, ah20:19
MetallicMonk_Anyone here?20:19
urlin2uflametai1, that is the strangest script I have seen, is it a wubi, or did you post all of the text.20:19
zeleftikamActionParsnip, good time to be getting rid of this HP if native support for the GPU is screwed up in new releases ;)20:20
flametai1urlin2u, posted all of the text, and no Wubi installer. It is an install from a LiveCD20:20
MetallicMonk_Anyone in the mood to help a noob? Lol20:20
zeleftikamMetallicMonk_, we'll try, ask your question20:21
urlin2uflametai1, I stumped on this one.20:21
Shimotsukeium do you have a link for foremost? or would photorec work better?20:21
flametai1I am too urlin2u, it makes no sense, it was working fine last night.20:21
MetallicMonk_Having issues with emerald, won't impliment a theme. I tried the "emerald --replace &" command that i found on forums, but it came to no avail.20:21
flametai1I suppose back to the drawing board.20:21
z3r0c0d3T20:22
zykotick9!emerald | MetallicMonk_ just for your info BUT20:22
ubottuMetallicMonk_ just for your info BUT: emerald is an obsolete window decorator for compiz. It's unsupported and unmaintained, making issues with it very hard to diagnose and fix. There are no known, supported alternatives.20:22
beilbyUbuntu 11.04, have installed  Miro this has taken the default application for .torrent files, Transmission is no longer in the list, I would like to make Transmission the default application for opening .torrent files. How do I do this please?20:22
MetallicMonk_Oh, okay. Any good alternatives?20:22
zykotick9MetallicMonk_, "...There are no known, supported alternatives."20:23
zeleftikambeilby, try this20:23
zeleftikamhttp://linux.about.com/od/ubuntu_doc/a/ubudg10t10.htm20:23
MetallicMonk_Well, i mean, theme wise. Any other way to put themes onto kubuntu?20:23
zeleftikambeilby, this may also be helpful: https://help.ubuntu.com/11.04/ubuntu-help/files-open.html20:23
ActionParsnipbeilby: right click a torrent file, select 'open with' then select transmission and click to remember the association20:23
beilbyyes, Transmission is not in the list unfortunately and I cannot determine where to find it in the file system20:25
zeleftikambeilby, maybe try uninstalling and reinstalling Transmission from the package manager thing20:25
Glycan__I'm fixing a box for a freind of mine, his wifi doesn't work20:25
Shimotsukeii don't quite see how to install foremost >.<20:26
ActionParsnipShimotsukei: same as any other app you can name20:26
Glycan__Sorry20:26
CitizenwarriorI have file.txt, I want to chmos it to read only for everyone, right now it is -rwxrwxrwx therefore I have tried sudo chmod 444 file.txt and nothing changes... What am I over looking?20:27
MetallicMonk_I'll take that as a no, thanks though!20:27
ActionParsnipCitizenwarrior: who is the owner?20:27
Citizenwarriorme20:27
ActionParsnipMetallicMonk_: well done you waited 4 minutes before giving up20:27
beilbyOK, have done this, it is still not in the list20:28
MetallicMonk_Haha, well, you guys seem busy, and i have google.20:28
Glycan__I need to fix wifi for my freind20:28
ActionParsnipMetallicMonk_: try waiting a little longer, or ask later20:28
CitizenwarriorActionParsnip I created it and moved it and I am trying to chmod it all from the same session, nothing has changed20:28
MetallicMonk_Okay20:28
Shimotsukeihmm...failed to install20:28
ActionParsnipMetallicMonk_: emerald is not maintained anymore. It is not suggested to be used at all20:28
zykotick9Citizenwarrior, is the file on a FAT/NTFS partition?20:28
Citizenwarrioryes20:28
[0xDEAD]anyone know how I get the indicator-mutliload to show up in the top panel in unity?  I've added the ppa and installed it using apt-get but I'm still trying to figure out how to get it to show up.20:28
ActionParsnipCitizenwarrior: doesn't answer my question20:28
zykotick9Citizenwarrior, that's why you can't change permission then20:29
ActionParsnipzykotick9: nice catch20:29
guntberturlin2u: about that boot info script: line 1888 contains a reference to the embedded menu, might be there was an error in creating that20:29
MetallicMonk_I've established that, question is, is there any way to put themes onto kubuntu then?20:29
zykotick9ActionParsnip, boom ;)20:29
mohamedhii20:29
Citizenwarriorzykotick9 ok if i move it to a ext3 can i change it then20:29
zykotick9Citizenwarrior, of course20:29
ActionParsnipMetallicMonk_: there are theme sites around, you can apply them using the theme manager. Its about 3 years dead now20:29
Citizenwarriorzykotick9  and then move it back20:29
zykotick9Citizenwarrior, move it back = lose all permission20:30
ActionParsnipMetallicMonk_: probably has some nasty bugs and securityholes20:30
rwwCitizenwarrior: no. NTFS does not deal with UNIX permissions.20:30
MetallicMonk_Lol, so should i just say forget kubuntu, and go to ubuntu?20:30

Citizenwarriorzykotick9 rww thanks for your time20:30
urlin2uguntbert, could be I saw that.20:31
ActionParsnipMetallicMonk_: whichever you like, could try it. Both are fine, depends which apps you use more20:31
beilbyUbuntu 11.04, have installed Miro this has taken the default application for .torrent files, Transmission is no longer in the list, I would like to make Transmission the default application for opening .torrent files.

urlin2uguntbert, so much is missing from the script, I would not know where to start, usualy it is a single partition error.20:33
Shimotsukei's not detecting my hdd at all20:34
beilbyactionparsnip transmission is not in the list20:34
ActionParsnipbeilby: itshould list ALL apps, like in the menus and you can navigate, or you can type: /usr/bin/transmission  as the command20:35
zykotick9beilby, use the "add" button to add transmission20:35
vltShimotsukei: Again, the device is shown by "fdisk -l"?20:35
Shimotsukeiyeah actually i just got it to show up20:35
