buddha_wait yakeb you mean to say that it boots up but then there is no login manager?00:00
phong_i like REalvnc because i used to it00:00
yakebexutux: apt-get00:00
=== addisonj__ is now known as addisonj
aaasphong_ i see3.. well im just trying to think on what would be best for you00:00
aaasphong_ if you know vnc that's a plot00:00
aaasphong_ but try nx to see if you like it00:00
aaasphong_ go to www.nomachine.com00:00
=== dfgas is now known as ironfisted
yakebbuddha: that's right, or if there is, it is misconfigured; it's just a blank screen.00:01
phong_aaas, realvnc for windows, i can change to what ever port i want00:01
antidwhat is BusyBox?00:01
aaasphong_  if you want only open source youll have to ask people here about freenx00:01
Dr_Willisnormally vnc starts at a specific port then moves up for each addational desktop. whats the poing in specifying a differnt port phong_?00:01
exutuxyakeb: so if you a blank screen try to login from tty ( ctrl+alt+f2 ) and remove slim00:01
aaasphong_ you can change the client to connect to any port but you have to change the server to run on that port too00:01
exutuxso reinstall gdm00:01
buddha_yakeb: what exutux said00:01
phong_aaas, anyway, since i already install RealVNC how to start it?00:01
aaasphong_  Dr_Willis is correct, i dont see why a different port is necessary00:01
buddha_and undo whatever configuration you did00:02
exutuxyakeb: sudo apt-get remove --purge slim00:02
phong_aaas, why?00:02
aaasphong_ im not totally sure.. i think thats Xvnc, correct?00:02
aaasphong_ why do you want to change the port?00:02
=== ironfisted is now known as dfgas
phong_aaas, because example port 5900 is being use for windows 700:02
phong_windows 7 has realvnc and is use port 590000:02
aaasphong_ the vnc client on windows?00:02
phong_wnc server on window00:02
exutuxyakeb: then sudo apt-get install gdm or install --reinstall00:02
Dr_Willisphong_:  somthing is confused here..  you got vnc going on  the vmware guest.. and host os? or what exactly.00:02
aaasphong_ but that is the default00:03
aaasphong_ the sever usually defaults to 5900 and the client usually connects to 590000:03
phong_ok then, i have to tell windows to listen to 5901 thennnnnnnnnnnnnnn00:03
aaasphong_ why do you need to change it to 5901?00:03
phong_well...tell me how to start vnc server on linux thennnnnn00:03
exutuxwell night all00:03
aaasphong_ you need display :1?00:03
phong_i need to display00:03
Dr_Willisvnc destops are numbered :1 and :2 and so on. thats the port+the Number.. ie: :1 = 5900+100:03
phong_drlisten man00:04
phong_ok let me tellu situation00:04
aaasphong_  so i think realvnc is Xvnc?00:04
Dr_Willisphong_:  clarify the exact issue man...00:04
aaasphong_ yes go ahead00:04
Dr_Willisxvnc is not realvnc. they are 2 differnt vnc servers. with differnt design goals.00:04
phong_I have 1 computer running windows 7 also has REalVnc server00:04
phong_i instaall ubuntu on windows 7 as vmware00:04
yakebetuxux (and) buddha_:thanks for your help. i will give this a try.00:05
phong_and later install realvnc for linux00:05
exutuxbut...why not configure remote desktop in Ubuntu....is too easy than complicate life with vncserver?00:05
phong_my    router currently port 5900 to windows ip00:05
phong_let say my windows ip is
phong_ubuntu has
phong_5900 is being port to x.x.x.10000:06
phong_now i want 5901 tooooooooo port to x.x.x.10100:06
aaasphong_ router shouldn't matter if all computer are behind it00:06
phong_aaas, it should00:06
aaasphong_ you shouldnt have to mess with routing tables00:06
phong_aaas, i connect externally00:06
aaasphong_ ah ok00:06
aaasphong_ but you said you were using vmware?00:07
Dr_Willisphong_:  set the vmware to use  the networking mode where  the gueyou should really set up the vmware box to do a differnt higher range or ports.. such as 690100:07
Dr_Willisoops messed up.. :) lol00:07
phong_how to do that00:07
phong_that is what i was saying00:07
phong_i can't bring realvnc configuration00:07
Dr_WillisPortNumber=(port number)   in vnc config file.. according to the realvnc docs.00:07
antidwhy when i try (an old version) boot install, after the ubuntu loading screen, i get to some "busybox" console with a endless "loading...please wait" at the top and a meaningless list of commands00:08
Dr_Willisi tend to use tightvnc.00:08
phong_the problem is for me how to configure in lunix00:08
Opiniecould someone guide me through the hurdle of copying an ubuntu partition from an USB stick to a partition in a HD? The computer in question is a MacBook running Leopard. I'm currently booted into Ubuntu 10.1000:08
phong_ok where is vncconfig file?00:08
phong_and how to know if realvnc is on?00:08
aaasphong_ what command did you use to run it?00:08
phong_usually windows 7 has an icon..it starts as service00:08
phong_i install it00:09
phong_that' sit00:09
phong_dont know if it run or not..and dont know how i can check00:09
aaasphong_ and it gave yo uthat error?00:09
buddha_Opinie: so the USB has a bootable version of ubuntu, not a live edition?00:09
phong_aaas, everthing installed fine00:09
phong_aaas, is realvnc has GUI configuration?00:09
phong_or is it command thing00:09
Opiniebuddha_: it's an actual OS that I'm currently running. I guess you could call it a live edition..?00:09
aaasphong_ if you open up a terminal and do 'ps -A | grep vnc -i' you probably dont have any vnc server running00:09
Opiniebuddha_: Also, the cd drive of the computer does not work00:10
phong_let me try00:10
aaasphong_ if you dont see any 'vnc'00:10
Jordan_UOpinie: How did you create the USB install?00:10
Dr_Willisvncserver PortNumber=6900    (from how i am reading the doc)00:10
phong_aaas, i dont see nothing00:10
buddha_Opinie: ok, so the USB is not an install ISO00:10
phong_so it is not running00:10
phong_how to start it then?00:10
aaasphong_ tryo vnc4server00:11
aaasphong_ try 'vnc4server'00:11
aaasphong_ does it know that command?00:11
phong_The program 'vnc4server' is currently not installed.  You can install it by typing:00:11
phong_sudo apt-get install vnc4server00:11
Dr_WillisFor a detailed list of all the Xvnc command-line options, run00:11
Dr_Willisvncserver -list00:11
aaasphong_ and 'vncserver'00:11
OpinieJordan_U buddha_ : I used my MBP to create the operating system running from the USB stick on my macbook. Essentially, I created the USB operating system using another computer00:11
Opiniebuddha_: no, it is not an ISO00:12
phong_i am installing it now00:12
Opiniebuddha_: *install iso00:12
aaasphong_  i thought you installed it?00:12
buddha_Opinie: 2nd question: do you have another USB stick? cause if you do that makes things easy00:12
aaasphong_ after you install type: "vnc4server :1 -geometry 1024x768"00:13
phong_aaas, i did, download from RealVNC00:13
phong_vnc4server is diff from realvnc?00:13
Opiniebuddha_ Jordan_U: yes, I do happen to have another USB stick00:13
Dr_WillisYou could always set up the router to forward port 7900 for example to port 6900 on the proper linux ip#. and not need to reconfigure vnc at all..00:13
aaasphong_ i dont know what executable they use00:13
Dr_Willisthen vnc to the port 7900.00:13
phong_aaas, anyway i install vnc4server00:13
phong_now what00:13
aaasphong_ after you install type: "vnc4server :1 -geometry 1024x768"00:13
Dr_Willisphong_:  you do realize that using vnc over the 'internet' is not secure? you shoudl really ssh tunnle it.00:13
phong_i call 'vnc4server' and create password00:13
phong_now what00:14
aaasphong_ try that command i had atove00:14
HRuivothanks for the help. bye ;)00:14
phong_aaas, then what00:14
phong_what port is it listening to?00:14
konrWhat's that program in Ubuntu's installation that allows you to visually check a keyboard layout? Are there others programs that do it?00:14
aaasphong_ try: 'ps -A | grep 'vnc'"00:15
phong_so that i can port forward00:15
aaasphong_ do you see a 'vnc' server running00:15
buddha_Opinie: alright, this is what you do. Grab yourself a copy of Clonezilla and install it on the other USB stick. Then put both USB sticks in and reboot the computer into clonezilla (this is assuming you have already set up a partition for the ubuntu)00:15
phong_phong_@p:~$ ps -A | grep 'vnc'00:15
phong_ 3498 pts/0    00:00:02 Xvnc400:15
aaas phong_ and this is on ubuntu that is running on vmware on a windows 7 host?00:15
phong_what now?00:15
phong_it has IP too00:16
aaasphong_ you have a vnc client in windows?00:16
Opiniebuddha_: just to be clear, first step is to install ubuntu on the other USB stick as well?00:16
phong_on other minchine00:16
phong_i will test on other machine00:16
aaasphong_ try connecting to the ip with port 5900 and then 590100:16
aaasphong_ try here first00:16
aaasphong_ make sure you can connect to the server internally00:16
phong_ok i try internally00:16
Opiniebuddha_: oh wait, never mind, now I understand what you meant. Yes, I have a partition already00:17
Opiniebuddha_: set aside for ubuntu00:17
Opiniebuddha_: right, I'll try what you suggested00:17
buddha_Opinie: ok, so boot up your clonezilla and clone the partition on the USB to the MBP00:18
phong_aaas, i think i forgot the pass00:18
aaasphong_ haha00:18
phong_it asks for password00:18
aaasphong_ thats a good sign00:18
phong_can i reset?00:19
aaasphong_ yes00:19
aaasphong_ I think it's vncpasswd00:19
ricreethe popup window from the force quit button is stuck on my screen, even after pressing escape.  Anyone know what the name of the process is so I can kill it?00:19
aaasphong_ did you need this over an internal network (across a router) or over the internet?00:20
aaasphong_ you really should tunnel this through ssh, but at that point you might as well use nx00:20
phong_aaas, authentication fail00:20
phong_i've changed pass00:20
buddha_Opinie: then I believe you can use grub on a MBP as its a x86, so reboot into Ubuntu after cloning is done and run "grub-install /dev/sda (or whatever your setup is)" if you want grub00:20
aaasphong_ you need this over the internet?00:20
phong_aaas, how can i kill it?????????????????????00:21
phong_i thhhink i forgot to put the resolution          ?00:21
aaasphong_ its ok, its not connecting because the password00:21
aaasphong_ i think00:21

aaasphong_ then check if the passwd file is there00:23
Opiniebuddha_: I suppose it's time to correct a minor misunderstanding, I actually wanted to install the ubuntu on a macbook, the MBP was just an intermediary that I had to use to create the USB ubuntu partition. Just a sec and I'll check which version the macbook in question is00:23

aaasphong_ your port is 5900?00:26
aaasphong_ in the vnc client its <ip>:5900?00:26
phong_just the plain ip00:26
phong_i think usually if u dont put port it default as 590000:26
aaasphong_ try <ip>:590000:26
aaasphong_ then <ip>:590100:26
Loungehow do i reinstall the ttys?00:27
phong_lol sammmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmme00:27
Jordan_Ubuddha_: You were right the first time. Intel macs have a BIOS implementation in addition to EFI, so you can install and use grub-pc as you would on any other PC (you can also use grub-efi, but I wouldn't).00:27

OpinieJordan_U buddha_ : In case it makes any difference, I already have Refit installed on the macbook.00:29
ActionParsnipphong_: sure, but to what end? You do realize there are far sleeker solutions than VNC00:29
aaasphong_ im not sure.. you dont have the capslock on do you.. .maybe you should jsut learn nx00:29
aaasphong_ you're going to have to tunnel this anyways00:29

urlin2uantid, yes use netbootin to load the thumb00:30

phong_this time i forgot how to do it lol00:32
aaasphong_ just rdp into windows machine00:32
phong_did it before love it00:32
aaasphong_ then you can run windows and ubuntu at the same time00:33
phong_no man, i have phone00:33
phong_i use vnc from my phone00:33
aaasphong_ yes the phone too00:33
aaasphong_ many many many rdp apps00:33
aaasphong_ vnc isn't secure00:33
phong_why not?00:33
aaasphong_ unless you tunnel through port 2200:33
ActionParsnipphong_: you do know that you can remotely access most of the OS without VNC, Torrent apps have WebUIs and files can be accessed over SSHFS for example00:33
aaasphong_ its not by nature00:33
aaasphong_ you have android or iphone?00:34

aaasphong_ sorry that one might not be free. but its definetly the best00:35
phong_let me get out of this chat in vmware00:35
ActionParsnipphong_: enable the web UI in transmission and you are good to go00:35
Dr_Willisis that the whole point of this vnc stuff? to controll a torrent client?  Transdroid is the way to do it.. :)00:35
phong_be back in min00:35
phong_let me turn vmware off00:35
aaasphong_ also you can use virtualbox instead of vmware...you can run in seamless mode and run both ubuntu and windows int he same os00:35
ActionParsniptoo many peope are TOO quick to reach for VNC. Its an appaulingly BAD protocol but people don't TINK to use sleeker solutions00:36
aaasActionParsnip agreed, its only for certain things00:36
aaasActionParsnip nx is almsot always00:36

Dr_Willisutorrent3 has a nice android client also - but not sure what version of utorrent is ported to linux at this time. :)00:37
Phong_now what?00:37
aaasPhong_: ok first you need an rdp client on yoru phone00:37
ActionParsnipaaas: i can usually name a better solution than any remote desktop thing under Linux00:37
Phong_just to let u know, im chat with u at home pc, but connect from work ;)00:37
milesDoes 'sudo rsync -axS' copies over the file permissions?00:37
aaasPhong_ you have any rdp app on yoru phone?00:37
Phong_aaas, and Dr_Willis i want u guys to know that i'm currently vnc to home pc and chat with u...i'm at work now00:37
Phong_what is it00:38
Phong_let me install00:38
ActionParsnipPhong_: if you port forward port 8080 on your home router to the IP of the system running transmission you can connect from anywhere and manage your torrents00:38
Phong_ActionParsnip, i did have 8080 for my router remote as well ;)00:38
aaasPhong_ im not sure if there s free version of pocketcloud00:38
aaasPhong_ but its the best00:38
Jordan_Ubuddha_: There I will disagree with you. Grub shouold be installed to the mbr, not to a partition (it will not replace rEFIt as rEFIt is not stored in the mbr).00:38
Phong_what is the program call again?00:39
Phong_are you sure it is safe?00:39
Jordan_UOpinie: Is there any reason you don't just install Ubuntu to the macbook normally (via the installer)?00:39
aaasPhong_ if you only need to manage torrents. ActionParsnip there are lots of things that people need to do with their computers and not everything has a web interface00:39
aaasPhong_ http://www.wyse.com/products/software/pocketcloud/index.asp00:39
aaasPhong_ see if it's free00:39
ActionParsnipPhong_: then change the port of transmission's remote interface, it's all in transmission's settings00:39
OpinieJordan_U: err, it's been quite problematic due to various reasons. but before I go on raving about the problems, what do you mean via the installer? via a live cd?00:40
ActionParsnipaaas: true but 9 times of 10, VNC isn't needed00:40
Jordan_UOpinie: Yes.00:40
Phong_aaas, is pocketcoud connect to their service first then to ur pc ?00:40
aaasActionParsnip again it depends on the user... i couldn't live without rdp access 9/1000:40

aaasPhong_ no00:40

Phong_now what00:41
aaasPhong_ go to windows and type 'remote desktop' in the command bar00:41
aaasPhong_ select 'select users who can use remote desktop'00:41
buddha_Jordan_U: if the system uses GTP partition table then yes you would want to install to ubuntu partition I believe00:42
Jordan_UOpinie: You will run into trouble trying to boot a normal Ubuntu USB as for some reason Apple's BIOS implementation doesn't support USB.00:42

aaasPhong_ make sure 'allow connections from computers running any version of remote desktop' is selected (for now)00:42

Jordan_Ubuddha_: No, even with GPT you want to install to the MBR (after creating a BIOS boot partition as an embedding area).00:42
aaasPhong_ we'll change it later, some clients needs the less secure00:42
aaasPhong_ yes make sure your vmware user has access00:43
OpinieJordan_U: with Refit you get around that. I've already successfully booted into ubuntu on the macbook. The problem now is to get the Ubuntu OS from the USB stick into a partition I've made on the macbook's internal HD00:43
buddha_Jordan_U: I sit corrected00:43
aaasPhong_ then connect your phone to wifi and try and connect to the ip00:43

Dr_Willissounds like a whole lot of work for very little real gain :)00:46
aaasPhong_ ok00:46
ActionParsnipDr_Willis: totally00:46
shaynewhats a good dvd burning program?00:46
Dr_Willisim not even clear on what the core question/end goal is any more.00:46
Dr_Willisshayne:  you mean a video file to DVD iso converting program?00:46
Dr_Willissince anything can 'burn' an iso.. basically. :)00:46
buddha_Opinie: ok so you tried clonezilla? there are other ways but that is the easiest and most pain-free way I can think of.00:46
shaynea program that will convert and burn, something like nero?00:47
guhcamposIs there any way to force a device to stay on /dev?00:47
ActionParsnipshayne: xfburn is all I use to burn :)00:47

guhcamposI have a faulty usb hdd that I'm trying to recover using ddrescue00:47
Opiniebuddha_: sorry, I had to do something else in the meanwhile00:47
guhcamposbut the device is created when I plug the HD to the usb, but after few seconds it disappears again00:47
Opiniebuddha_: hence it's taken so long00:47
ActionParsnipguhcampos: what is in the output of:  dmesg | tail00:48
Phong_aaas, done add ...less secure -> user  done00:48
aaasPhong_ now connect your phone TO WIFI and try and connect to your ip using pocketcloud00:48
aaasPhong_ use the ip of that machine..the WINDOWS ip not the vmware ip00:48
Dr_Willisguhcampos:  thats why ddrescue (or was it dd_rescue?) has a log feautre that you SHOULD be using.. if it disconnects.. you reboot, restart the rescue.. and hopefully it recovers some more befor it disconnects again.00:48
buddha_Opinie: no worries, just wanted to know if it failed.00:48
ActionParsnipguhcampos: use a pastebin if you want to share00:49
guhcamposDr_Willis, but it only lasts a few seconds, it's a 500GB HDD T_T00:49
Dr_Willisguhcampos:  yes it may take a while.. :)00:49
buddha_I just realized something: food tastes good. Ima go eat.00:49
Dr_Willisguhcampos:  took me almost 2 weeks to recover a 2Tb hd...00:49
guhcamposActionParsnip, it's on another computer, I can't really paste, but the last message is "reset high speed usb device using ehci_hcd" followed by "device descriptor read/64 error -110"00:49
ActionParsnipguhcampos: ok find out what error -110 means00:50
muktiIs there a reason that the volume will not go to max by default? And how would I go about changing this?00:50
shaynebrasero always freezes up while trying to convert the file to dvd.00:50
Phong_aaas, port?00:50
guhcamposActionParsnip, but who is issuing error -110? Udev?00:50
aaasPhong_ it should be 3389 i think.. but it hsould be defaulted00:50
aaasPhong_ you shouldnt have to specify00:50
Phong_but i need to add to router then00:50
aaasPhong_ did you say you are at work?00:50
aaasPhong_ and your'e doing this work at home?00:51
aaasPhong_ ah ok00:51
aaasPhong_ yes then you need to forward 338900:51
Jordan_UOpinie: So why don't you just run the installer from the LiveUSB?00:51
Phong_u sure windows listen to that port?00:51
aaasPhong_ if you have the service running yes00:51
Phong_ok bb let me add to router00:51
muktiIs it dangerous to put the volume past 100%?00:51
OpinieJordan_U: ironically, I can't boot a liveUSB installer on the macbook00:52
Dr_Willismukti:  not that ive ever noticed.. except for distortion.00:52
Dr_Willismukti:  and your hearing. :)00:52
ActionParsnipguhcampos: not sure, i'm sure websearches wil pull stuff up00:52
aaasPhong_ if this doesnt work you'll have to wait until you get home and test it behind the firewall00:52
guhcamposActionParsnip, I'm digging through it00:52
ActionParsnipmukti: not really no00:52
gregdayI have a 2TB drive I've been using for awhile, but I'm wiping it to use with mdadm and I'm having the weirdest error. I can fdisk just fine and create partitons, but no matter what I do, I cannot read or write sdb1. I can read/write the whole disk, and if I make two partitions, I can do whatever to sdb2, but not sdb1.00:52
Jordan_UOpinie: Can you boot a LiveUSB installer from a machine with a firewire port with the macbook in target disk mode?00:52
ActionParsnipmukti: +1 for distortion though, crank speakers rather than the app00:52
muktiDr_Willis: so is that the only reason that it is set that low? I only ask because I just opened up Sound Preferences for the first time and saw that 100% isn't the max volume...00:52
gregdayIf I try to mkfs on /dev/sdb1 I get "Error getting MD array info from /dev/sdb1"  Been using Linux for 12 years and never seen this.00:53
muktiActionParsnip: Well, I'm on a laptop00:53
gregdayCould by disk be failing?00:53
Dr_Willismukti:  you normally set the pc at like 75% - then use the speaker knob. :)00:53
muktiDr_Willis: I'm on a laptop though...00:53
Jordan_Ugregday: What is the exact command you are running? Can you pastebin the exact command and the entire output?00:53
Dr_Willismukti:  so? the actual question is? I missed it...00:53
OpinieJordan_U: I'd have to get a new firewire cable. I would have done that otherwise. Somehow Apple has managed to change the shape of its firewire ports, so the the firewire cable I have is inapplicable00:54
muktiDr_Willis: If I set my volume to 75%, I can't turn up the speakers lol00:54
Jordan_UOpinie: So how do you plan to get Ubuntu onto the macbook's hard drive?00:54
muktiDr_Willis: I was really just asking if it was dangerous to put the volume past the 100% mark.00:54
gregdayJordan_U:  http://pastebin.com/DDrTMjhV00:55
Dr_Willismukti:  how are you putting it past 100%?00:55
gregdayJordan_U:  mdadm --create  fails on this disk too.00:55
Phong_aaas, it's working00:55
gregdayJordan_U: But no error using fdisk to *create* sdb1. Just when I try to actually do anything with it.00:55
aaasPhong_ sweet: now you can connect and use any app on windows00:55
OpinieJordan_U: well buddha suggested that I boot the macbook using an USB that has clonezilla on it. With that – this is how I understood it – I should be able to copy the USB ubuntu partition to the partition I've made on the macbook's HD00:55
Phong_aaas, however, vnc start faster00:55
muktiDr_Willis: I opened sound preferences, and the 100% mark is not at the end of the volume bar00:56
aaasPhong_ AND if you run virtualbox in seemless mode you can run both at the same time00:56
Dr_Willismukti:  cant say that i ever noticed..00:56
aaasPhong_ maybe because it's not encrypted?00:56
Phong_aaas, oh00:56
aaasPhong_ you're also more secure00:56
Phong_aaas, i see. cause VNC faster..maybe less secure00:56
aaasPhong_ and you can connect from any other windows computer without downloading anything00:56
aaasPhong_ vnc is usually solw00:56
aaasPhong_ rdp is pretty fast00:56
Dr_Willisvnc may start faster.. but be slower to actually use. :)00:56
Jordan_Ugregday: The pastebin you just created is already the 7'th result in google for "Error getting MD array info from".00:57
gregdayJordan_U: I know, I've been searching too!00:57
muktiDr_Willis: http://i.imgur.com/4DFn6.png00:57
gregdayJordan_U:  I find it odd that I can write (dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sdb) just fine, but writing to sdb1 fails.00:57
Phong_can it be lower color?00:57
gregdayJordan_U: And running badblocks on the disk returns no errors.00:58
aaasPhong_ if you like pocketcloud support them by buying the paid app because its a great app and i ahve got so much work done using it00:58
Phong_aaas, are you sure it is not goes thru their company right?00:58
Dr_Willisonce you write to sdb - you would delete the partion table.. thus you cant write to sdb1 after you write to sdb00:58
aaasPhong_ yes, its in the client00:58
aaasPhong_ certain00:58
gregdayDr_Willis: Oh, I'm recreating sdb1 in fdisk after trying that.00:58
gregdayDr_Willis: I'm not that stupid :)00:58
Phong_aaas, i like it connect directly ;)00:58
Jordan_Ugregday: I assume that dd of=/dev/sdb1 works also?00:58
=== XLV_ is now known as XLV
aaasPhong_ mess with the settings also all windows have a r'remote desktop' client00:58
aaasPhong_ you can change settings there too00:58
Dr_Willisgregday:  ive seen cases where you must reboot, or somehow reload the partition table or else the kernel uses the old table also.00:58
gregdayJordan_U: Nope, it fails. But if I make an sdb2 I can write to that00:58
gregdayDr_Willis: I did reboot also.00:58
Phong_aaas, what about for linux?00:59
Dr_Willisgregday:  hit it with a hammer... :)00:59
aaasPhong_ 'rdesktop'00:59
Jordan_Ugregday: What error message does dd give?00:59
aaasPhong_ or 'krdesktop' 'grdeskto' 'xrdp'00:59
aaasPhong_ there are lots00:59
gregdayJordan_U: "No space left on device"00:59
Phong_aaas, you know why free?00:59
Phong_lol the freaking ads00:59
Jordan_Ugregday: Can you pastebin the output of "sudo parted -l"?00:59
aaasPhong_ what has adds?00:59
aaasPhong_ ahhh00:59
Phong_that is why it is free..00:59
aaasPhong_ yes pocketcloud00:59
Phong_it load the ads01:00

SRCI do, now get out.01:23
Dr_WillisJimmio:  theres other tools at the pendrivelinux web site. I alwyas use the one that makes a grub2 usb that boots the iso file. tends to work well for me.01:23
SRCI'm kidding Zungo01:23
urlin2usilverarrow, ah get the tor bundle from them it is easier.01:24
JasonnHow do I make a user not be able to use IRSSI?01:24
=== e1ky is now known as syrinx_
Dr_WillisJasonn:  uninstall irssi :)01:24
Dr_WillisJasonn:  theres other irc clients they could use.01:24
JasonnDr_Willis: I just want it to be unavailable to ONE user, and avaiable to everyone else01:24
JasonnI need it installed01:24
MOnkaiihey yall01:24
silverarrowurlin2u: , I see, I am new to Tor, and am a bit reluctant to mess system up, and tons of packages to choose I really couldn't make sense of01:25
ZungoJasonn: play with perms that should help.....01:25
urlin2usilverarrow, you can get the whole thing from them with a browser set up.01:25
JimmioDr_Willis: Could you be more specific? There's lots of tools on that site..01:25
Dr_WillisJasonn:  you will have to do some serious work to lock down that user. or move irssi to some other path and add that path to the other users.. but then user 1 could alwyas give the full path to the client...01:25
JasonnZungo: How do I do that?01:25
Dr_WillisJimmio:  i use the one that makes multi boot flash that boots the iso files..01:26
JasonnDr_Willis: COuld I somehow do that without changing the path?01:26
Zungojust point the irssi binary and deny perm to that user01:26
silverarrowurlin2u: I see, for chromium too?01:26
Dr_WillisJasonn:  not that i know of.01:26
Zungoget it?01:26
urlin2usilverarrow, not sure, but I think opers and firefox, not sure really.01:26
Dr_WillisJasonn:  user 1  could alwyas just use some OTher irc client..  You mught beable to lock it down a bit with groups.. but never needed to.01:26

Zungoto 501:36
silverarrowurlin2u:  I  just noticed you didn't have the ":" that comes with the tab function, maybe it's just a quirk01:36
Dr_Willisbest is to learn the proper service name.. not mess with init command...01:36
Dr_Willisbecause you dont need to restart ALL the services.. like init would do..01:37
Opiniebuddha_: something that I noticed was that Ubuntu seemed to be using a kind of i686 version of itself (I hope that makes some sense), so I thought I'd try to use the same version of clonezilla01:37
buddha_Opinie: yeah, I've never had any luck booting off school iMacs01:37
urlin2usilverarrow, yes I have been using the IRC for a long time and undertand01:37

buddha_Opinie: ok, I don't know if all macbooks were x64 or some where x8601:37
Opiniebuddha_: and I was successful in booting ubuntu01:37
Opiniebuddha_: ok, my macbook is quite ancient01:38
silverarrowurlin2u: I'm in pidgin right now, and the red text doesn't appear even when addressed to nick01:38
urlin2usilverarrow, not my fault lol.01:38
smokin40sHello everyone! I've been trying to find a way to disable gnome+compiz while launching a game so it runs better is this possible?01:38
Opiniebuddha_: no the OS I had installed on a USB stick01:38
ZungoInit runlevel meaning: 1=single, 3=nogui, 4=nogui+net, 5=X & def. Is that correct???01:39
silverarrowurlin2u:  definitely the pidgin guys lol01:39
Dr_Willissmokin40s:  you coyule change from compiz to metacity via commands/script.. but thts not 'disabling gnome'  - Unless you want to logout and log backinto a minimal desktop session.01:39
urlin2usilver never used it, I don't do an text or IM other then xchat on the irc.01:39
Dr_WillisZungo:  not in Ubuntu.01:39
buddha_Opinie: ah, hmmmm. well have you tried clonezilla for x8601:39
buddha_although I don't think they make another version01:40
urlin2usilverarrow, never used it, I don't do an text or IM other then xchat on the irc.01:40
Dr_Willis!runlevel | Zungo01:40
ubottuZungo: In Ubuntu all runlevels except 0,1 and 6 are by default equal. Also keep in mind that Ubuntu now uses !Upstart instead of System V init so there is normally no /etc/inittab.01:40
silverarrowurlin2u, xchat acted up the last two days, it has the red text function though01:40
=== Auriel_ is now known as Auriel
smokin40sso Dr_Willis metacity uses far less resources to run is that what you are sayin?01:41
Zungosmokin40s: just run killall compiz and killall unity and make sure you opened a term so you can run metacity&& gnome-panel. and better do not close that term01:41
Dr_WillisZungo:  2=3=4=501:41
Dr_WillisZungo:  killing compiz may cause X to exit also...01:41
Opiniebuddha_: I don't think there is a version that is explicitly listed as being an x86 version, but is x86=amd64?01:41
bambanxguysfor what is used the hostname?01:41
Dr_Willissmokin40s:  if you wanted the max resources for a game, you could install some very minimal window manager. log into that. and then play the game,01:42
buddha_Opinie: no, x64 = amd64 and x86 = i686 roughly01:42
buddha_for our purposes anyway01:42
Opiniebuddha_: ok, I'm trying x86 now01:42
smokin40swould you suggest a good minimal window manager?01:42
Dr_Willissmokin40s:  dozens of them. try wmx, or icewm perhaps01:42
buddha_Opinie: sorry I don't mean to be confusing01:42
Opiniebuddha_: problem is figuring out which boot option is the clonezilla one. Refit seems to have trouble identifying the different options01:43
Dr_Willissmokin40s:  or jwm.01:43
Opiniebuddha_: no problem ;-)01:43
silverarrowurlin2u: advantage with pidgin, has different colored nicks01:43
smokin40sthank you so much for your help01:43
Zungoreally Dr_Willis? no, the session is gnome-session and compiz is a sub process01:43
qinsilverarrow: irssi have colors too!01:43
Zungoi already tested01:43
Dr_WillisZungo:  easier to do 'metacity --replace'01:43
Zungooh yep01:43
Zungobut killall unity is right01:43
gaelfxsilverarrow: pidgin also has very poor handling of large IRC rooms, such as this one01:43
DanyWalkerhi guys, i have a problem01:44
DanyWalkeror a question01:44
silverarrowgelfx, i don't notice much difference except for the missing red text function ?01:44
gaelfxDanyWalker: have at it01:44
JimmioOkay. Bad news. Dell Dimension 3000 can boot my flash drive. Laptop can't. What should I do?01:44
Zungokillall unity&& metacity --replace&& gnome-panel01:44
DanyWalkeris possible add password to my zip file?01:44
Zungois not ubuntu related i think......01:45
silverarrowgaelfx: nick spell error01:45
DanyWalkerzip -p password archive.zip archivo.txt01:45
buddha_Opinie: so from my little research session it looks like you might be able to boot the clonezilla if you use unetbootin. no guarantees though01:45
gaelfxsilverarrow: not a problem, not sure what you mean by red text function though01:45
Zungoumm then is an affirmation01:45
Opiniereally? I did install unetbootin onto the ubuntu01:45
silverarrowgaelfx: though I might not know the finer points of xchat01:45
Zungosmokin40s: use Blackbox01:46
silverarrowgaelfx, you know, address post with nick and it gets red in the receiver end01:46
buddha_Opinie: did you use unetbootin to install the clonezilla onto the other USB stick?01:47
* Zungo quits *01:47
gaelfxsilverarrow: I'm fairly certain that most any modern IRC client can highlight posts directed at you ;)01:47
Opiniebuddha_: no, I used my MBP to install the clonezilla into the other USB stick01:47
Opiniebuddha_: *onto01:47
Opiniebuddha_: I don't mind trying it with unetbootin though01:47
buddha_i would do that01:48
buddha_its worth a shot01:48
Opiniebuddha_: I can do that with ubuntu, can't I?01:48
silverarrowgaelfx: I'm in pidgin right now, I don't get any red highlighted text nick or no nick01:48
buddha_yep, just download the program (either from apt-get or unetbootin website) and away you go01:49
buddha_Opinie: disclaimer, I don't know if unetbootin is in the ubuntu repositories01:49
silverarrowgaelfx: though nicks are given different colors, so fairly easy to follow two or three people's conversation01:49
Opiniebuddha_: you need to add a repository to get it01:49
Opiniebuddha_: but I sorted that out already some hours ago01:50
Opiniebuddha_: err, after doing this I will still have to be able to boot into clonezilla, won't I?01:51
buddha_should do. use unetbootin to put clonezilla on the other USB01:52
buddha_it'll wipe the old install on the USB01:52
Opiniebuddha_: hmm, ok01:53
ferreiraHey ... look01:55
ferreirai'm surprise01:55
Opiniebuddha_: something odd I've noticed is that there's apparently a led in my computer's sound socket. it doesn't light up on mac os x, but it does on ubuntu01:55
ferreirapeoples use IRC01:55
Opiniebuddha_: … ubuntu works better than mac os x01:56

wifiwontworkhi i have an rtl8187 that shows as connected in NM but wont connect through firefox.01:56

blahblahI recently bought a $250 Acer Aspire One laptop which came with Windows 7 Starter ALREADY installed on it.  I am trying to make a dual OS with Fedora and Windows.  This computer has no CD drive, so I had to make Fedora bootable from a USB flash drive.  The problem I have is that even after partitioning my hard drive with some software in Windows (resized the 250 GB HDD to 150 GB with the rest unallocated) I cannot install Fedora.02:08
blahblahThe Fedora graphical installer doesn't even list partitions, only the Hard drive and USB as hardware.  Keep in mind, I cannot just let it format the hard drive, because then I will lose the Windows which came with the laptop (no Windows install CD came with it because it has no CD drive).02:09

karmstActionParsnip I understand the concept of themes and I find some really interesting ones02:15
karmstbut how do you apply them?02:15
ActionParsnipjaocb: it uses Ext4 by default, you will need 2 partitions to hold the OS02:15
ActionParsnipkarmst: check www.gnome-look.org02:15

jaocbthanks for all the help02:18
ActionParsnipchipotle: one openssh-server is installed you can connect from anywhere with a logical link, if you want to connect from outside you LAN you will need to setup port forwarding02:18
ActionParsnip!lamp | kolix not by default02:19
ubottukolix not by default: LAMP is an acronym for Linux-Apache-MySQL-PHP. However, the term is often used for setups using alternative but different software, such as Perl or Python instead of PHP, and Postgres instead of MySQL. For help with setting up LAMP on Ubuntu, see  https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ApacheMySQLPHP - See also the Server CD installation process (different in Edgy+)02:19
Jordan_Ukolix: The server install CD comes with packages for a LAMP stack on it. What you install depends on what options you choose in the installer ( "LAMP" being one option ).02:19

Polahchipotle: That shouldn't be done unless necessary. Not having a root password is more secure. Anything that is required to be run as root can be done through sudo on an account with appropriate privileges02:24
ActionParsnipbuddha_: please don't advise that02:24
karmstyou could edit the CALCs but it's just too much of a PIA to do02:24

buddha_ok sorry to hurt the newbie02:25
Polahchipotle: If there's a service listening on a port then that port should be automatically opened. iptables closes ports unless there's a service listening on them unless specifically told to keep them closed02:26
ActionParsnipSingham: handbrake, mencoder, ffmpeg02:26
chipmonkj #evince02:26
karmstwhat are you talking about Polah?02:26
karmstiptables is not automated02:26
karmstit just doesn't open a port until you specifically specify one02:27
muktikarmst: doesn't iptables block everything initially?02:27
Polahkarmst: Well no, not exactly, but ports are automatically closed unless there's a service listening on them02:27
karmstyes... it would be a real pain to have to disable 35000+ ports02:28

bsmith093ActionParsnip: ok umm, how do i pastebin the output, i cant get it to save to a file02:31
Polahchipotle: Disagree with logging in as root? It's actually a very good security feature. Logging in as root allows that user to run anything they like and those applications to do anything they like to a system. Using sudo allows A) only authorised users to run certain commands as root and B) causes the user to think about what they're doing before actually running the command.02:31

bwrightHow has ubunutu not fixed HL-2140 printers being recognised as HL-1270 printers which causes the wrong driver to be intsalled that totally roots anything you want to print.02:33

Jordan_UOpinie: That's a good sign, it means that your mac can boot a BIOS based bootloader from USB. That makes things easier. Do you have an Ubuntu 11.04 liveCD iso on the USB drive?03:02
t4nk266I don't see a window where I can enter the join command03:02
Jordan_UOpinie: (as an actual file).03:03

Thelmariat4nk266: Are things working? If so, you're probably using gnome. :P -- Unity is the default for 11.04, so if you didn't select 'classic' at the login screen, you're probably using unity.03:12
t4nk266I think I'm using unity then! I remember Gnome from when I installed it on slackware years ago - and this looks different03:12

Polahnac-godfather, bambanx: That copies, it doesn't move it03:19

theadminhetecro: Again, UNIX file permissions. No.03:39
Jordan_Uhetecro: The only downside to ntfs for Ubuntu and OSX is that if you ever have a power outage or otherwise don't cleanly unmount the partition you will need to run chkdsk from Windows as neither OSX nor Ubuntu can fix ntfs.03:39

xanguaanastasis: normally that is how it is03:40
Jordan_Uhetecro: You can make your Documents directory a symlink to a directory on your ntfs partition without issue. You won't have unix permissions for that directory, but you don't really need them in most cases (for Documents).03:41

wifiwontworkI had a rtl8187 usb wireless card I was trying to hook up, I was able to send / receive packets but wasnt able to browse with firefox or any other browser, no IRC or anything....03:49

hetecroJust pics, music, videos, downloads. . .03:49
hetecroYes, that's what I want03:50
wifiwontworkanyway thanks for the help flodline...03:50
theadminhetecro: Just make them links, then03:50
hetecroBut make it default03:50
theadminhetecro: Create a link called "Documents" pointing to some documents folder on a FAT32 drive, and such03:50
talntid2thetrav, you have to re-make them.03:51
hetecroYes, but Fat32 does not work for me, I have plenty of files over 2gb03:51
theadminhetecro: Then NTFS, or whatever.03:51
hetecroHm. . . Perplexing03:51
talntid2yeah, I found that out a while back :(03:51
theadminhetecro: Those documents, pictures, etc folders are unimportant -- you can even delete them03:51
make7upursWhen I try boot off of ubuntu live usb I end up with a flashing cursor. Using partition inspector it says my MBR code is grub. I previously installed ubuntu succesfully with refit however now I'm unable to even boot into a livecd or liveusb to clear the MBR data.03:51
anastasisI have been given a login to a phpmyadmin at mysql.websitesettings.com, when I login I see that I am able to administer a database. Basically the person who gave me this is looking for someone to reconstitute the site that this DB used to administer. I see that I can import/export the DB but it seems this DB is only half the story, arent their other files I would need to reconstitute the site?... In this site I am looking at a DB host03:51
anastasised on some server and I assume the web site host server is on some other server and somehow pointed at the DB. I need to 1>DOwnload the DB and files associated so that I have a complete archive of the site.  Do I need access to the web server portion of this equation to do that or is the DB enough somehow. THanks and rabbi1 for the channels. sorry so long.03:51

flodinewifiwontwork i didnt do anything about to install 3.0 myself03:52
Jordan_Uhetecro: Use ntfs.03:52
hetecroBut when you use certain programs, they (by default) point to your *registered* directories for docs03:52
hetecroIs there any way to use the console to change the default location?03:53
theadminhetecro: Yeah, well, it's just in their settings. If those folders are links, they'll point to the link location03:53
hetecroAh! I see03:53
make7upursHow can I completely clear my EFI along with any hybrid MBR on my macbook pro. I want to reinstall ubuntu but Im not even able to access the live cd or even access grub...any suggestions?03:53

hetecroA 20 minute clip of 4k footage takes up several GB03:58
theadminpedahzur: In Ubuntu, you can't -- GNOME requires Pulse to work03:58
GhostFreemanis this 4k footage in REDCODE?03:58
hetecroYes it is.03:58
make7upurs@Jordan_U no I used i8603:58
hetecro.r3d files03:58
theadminpedahzur: As for Kubuntu, apt-get remove pulseaudio should just do it03:59
ActionParsniphetecro: the file extensiopn means nearlynothing in Linux, the data is looked at to determina what it is, not the extension.03:59
zykotick9theadmin, "GNOME requires Pulse to work" isn't correct - ALSA works just fine for Gnome in other distros03:59
hetecroI have a short film Im currently working with that is ~55GB in size03:59
theadminzykotick9: Oh, right, that's a GNOME3 thing. Sorry.03:59
theadminzykotick9: My mistake03:59
ActionParsniphetecro: so saying ".r3d files" doesn't hold much weight03:59
ActionParsniptheadmin: lubuntu doesn't use pulse ;)03:59
theadminActionParsnip: lol nice04:00
silverarrowwhat then ?04:00
hetecroWell, nonetheless, I use all three systems, but doing what I do for a living makes communication between them incredibly slow04:00

sublim21by chance, anyone familiar with a usenet program for ubuntu that will not only parse nzbs, but also autopar and unzip?  i've been googling and came across pan ->http://pan.rebelbase.com/faq/#General1 reading the faqs now thought04:00
sublim21suggestions are appreciated.04:00
theadminpedahzur: Wouldn't suggest to use OSS, but ALSA is good04:00
make7upursJordan_U: I used the 32bit i386 version04:01
ActionParsnippedahzur: alsa is tried and tested04:01
make7upursJordan_U: I was able to boot into ubuntu succesfully previously04:01
zykotick9pedahzur, PulseAudio actually requires ALSA to work - these are NOT alternatives to one another.  Removing Pulse from Ubuntu is "probably" a bad idea, in my opinion.04:01
Jordan_Umake7upurs: Try this http://www.mirrorservice.org/sites/cdimage.ubuntu.com/cdimage/releases/11.04/release/ubuntu-11.04-desktop-amd64%2bmac.iso04:01
hetecroWhat about a network drive? Network drives dont give 2 poops about filesystem04:01
hetecroRunning on GB Ethernet here, would that be faster?04:02
ActionParsniphetecro: true, the kernel and the sharing service handle it all04:02
hetecroWould that be faster than using a shared filesystem like Fat?04:02
=== caplink811-log is now known as caplink811_log
ActionParsniphetecro: doubt the file access time would be faster over lan with fat rather than something decent04:03
pedahzurtheadmin: zykotick9: I understand that it's "probably" a bad idea, but when you can't get your USB headset to work despite EVERYTHING you've tried, you get desperate. It's really frustrating when the device shows up in the PulseAudio device list, but it won't make it available as a recording device.04:03

Jordan_Umake7upurs: You're welcome.04:04
hetecroI mean, if the network drive is formatted as ext4 or ntfs04:04
theadminhylian: /network add freenode -autosendcmd "/nick yournick ; /msg nickserv identify password"04:04
hetecroWould it be faster than having a partition of ntfs or fat04:04
theadminhylian: And then: /server add -network freenode irc.freenode.net04:04
hyliantheadmin: thank you, i'll try that now...04:04
flodinewifiwontwork why are you trying to update the kernel bro?04:05
ActionParsnipheckman: if its local then it will be a lot faster04:06
ActionParsniphetecro: ^04:06
theadminhylian: You can also use /msg nickserv identify NICKNAME PASSWORD to use a nickname different from the account name04:06
hetecroHm. . . Perplexing04:07
hyliantheadmin: good advice, I am going to try this now, brb, thanks again04:07
wifiwontworkflodline I was getting kernel panics when using my rtl8187, fairly heavily. Although I was never able to connect to the net, i was at one point able to ping out but now can't even ping04:07
hetecroOk. New question04:07
ActionParsniphetecro: storing on a lan storage is handy if you use multiple OSes though, also makes backups easier as there is only one copy04:08
Lesterwoodguys, for linux desktop, what runlevel does the system usually start on04:08
theadminLesterwood: 504:08
Lesterwoodfull multiuser?04:08
theadminLesterwood: Ubuntu doesn't have runlevels04:08
theadminLesterwood: But in normal Linux systems, X = 504:08
Lesterwoodwhy not?04:08
theadmin!upstart | Lesterwood04:09
ubottuLesterwood: Upstart is meant to replace the old Sys V Init system with an event-driven init model.  For more information please see: http://upstart.ubuntu.com/04:09
flodinewifiwontwork ok well one of those newer kernel will work bro04:09
zykotick9!runlevels | Lesterwood04:09
ubottuLesterwood: In Ubuntu all runlevels except 0,1 and 6 are by default equal. Also keep in mind that Ubuntu now uses !Upstart instead of System V init so there is normally no /etc/inittab.04:09
hetecroIn my apartment, I am stuck with wifi, I have my mac pro set up in all three oses to serve the internet connection a wireless N router04:09

hetecroIt goes in the wifi and out the Ethernet port to the rest of the computers in the house04:10
pedahzurtheadmin, zykotick9: Sorry if you messaged me...my client disconnected.04:10

ActionParsnip05:02 < hetecro> Running on GB Ethernet here, would that be faster?04:10

wifiwontworkflodline I hope so...this install hasnt04:10
theadminhylian: You did the /server add thing, right?04:10
ActionParsniphetecro: so if you are stuck with wifi, that's not ethernet... I'm confused04:10
hetecroThe computer acts as an internet bridge o the router with both wifi and GB Ethernet04:11
hyliantheadmin: i can try again. i did do it... maybe i flubbed it.04:11
xFxshell free please04:11
theadminxFx: You want a shell account? Try Anapnea04:12
ActionParsniphetecro: i see04:12
wifiwontworkflodline which kernel are you installing?04:12
hetecroUnfortunately, since the computer must be connected to the receiving port of the router, it cannot be networked with the computers on the other side04:12
hyliantheadmin: i also like sdf.lonestar.org, good people over there, running fairly old but reliable unix servers.04:12
flodinewifiwontwork im not im going to be happy all is working on both laptop.are you on a dell?04:13
theadminhylian: Well, Anapnea has a friendly community, and a TON of development tools... Besides, the only shell provider I found that has Finch04:13
hetecroThe computer has two Ethernet ports on the back, but if I connect one to the RX and the other to on if the four TX, a technical paradox occurs and the internet bridge no longer works04:13

xFxtheadmin I want an ssh account, do you have?04:19
theadminxFx: Join #anapnea, they can give you one04:19
robin0800hetecro, thats what I mean you need two cards04:19
hyliantheadmin: i went over it this time, and it works. for freenode, you have to add a wait command... (nickserv is a little slower than irssi expects.) thanks again! :)04:19
theadminhylian: Ah, makes sense04:19
hetecroWhy cant technology just work the way it does in my head?04:20
theadminhetecro: If you'd try installing Linux on your brain you'd have much more trouble :P04:20
ActionParsniphetecro: network logic isn't what you think. Connecting 2 NICs to the same subnet causes all sorts of badness04:20

hetecroBut not the same one the computer is receiving the internet from04:24
qinG0R: character palette?04:25
Opinieso router A receives the internet and is connected to the wifi router (router B), which then shares the internet via wifi to other computers?04:25
bakeranyone else here know how to fix that?04:25
hetecroMy apartment complex uses a wireless signal, but networking is not allowed. So in order to both receive internet AND network, I had to re-distribute the internet04:26
hetecroMake sense?04:26
Opinieah right04:26

Opinieyou ought to be able to do that04:26
magn3tsDoes rhythmbox ever quit for y'all or are you forced to force Quit it every, single time as well?04:26
nitetripand the answer is to change the subnet of your personal network04:26
Opinieunless the apartment complex has some sorts of measures to prevent that kind of thing happening, but I wouldn't know about them04:27
hetecroSo wifi A goes into computer A, then computer A shares internet from wifi A to wifi B04:27

UoUeAaActionParsnip: how can i see the kernel im using?04:49
Jordan_Utheadmin: Are you sure SuSe supports being dd'd to a drive? Most isos don't.04:49
ActionParsnipbaker: yes it's the pre-release04:49
ActionParsnipUoUeAa: uname -a04:49
need_suseActionParship, it only works for ubuntu based OS04:49
theadminJordan_U: I know Fedora does... And I'm pretty certain SuSE did too, but I'm not 100% sure04:49
kolixare thoese what come with the default installation of ubuntu server 11.0404:49
bakeranother new ubuntu project?04:49
theadminJordan_U: Yep, it does04:49
theadminJordan_U: 11.04 does at least04:49
bakerwhat do you mean TAB not autfiling04:50
ActionParsnipneed_suse: could try th 1 2 3 app from pendrivelinux if you have a windows system around04:50
Jordan_Uneed_suse: Unetbootin supports OpenSuSe, Ubuntu's "USB Startup Disk Creator" does not (and is not Unetbootin).04:50
theadminJordan_U: Err, 11.404:50
ActionParsnipbaker: no, its the next release of ubuntu, do some websearching and you'll see exactly what it is04:50
Polahkolix: I know openssh-server is the default SSH server and a standard LAMP stack is Apache, MySQL and PHP5.04:50
need_suseJordan_U, Unetbooting only supports OpenSUSE 11.1!!04:50
bakerthats what i was talking about a new ubuntu lol04:51
kolixok guys, im kind anew to ubuntu04:51
bakerits a beta or a leak reslease04:51
Polahneed_suse: unetbootin allows you to select a pre-downloaded ISO as well04:51
gaelfxPolah: tasksel is a much easier way to install LAMP04:51
bakerthat you are using04:51
Polahgaelfx, tasksel?04:51
ActionParsnipbaker: its the alpha release, its not beta til 4th Sept, its not leaked at all04:51
UoUeAaActionParsnip: http://paste.ubuntu.com/677700/04:51
theadminneed_suse: You can do the dd thing I suggested04:52
need_susePolah, Unetbooting doesn't have the latest version of opensuse04:52
theadminneed_suse: It's sure to work04:52
bakerlol first release whatever man04:52
ActionParsnipUoUeAa: why do I need that?04:52
gaelfxkolix: Polah: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ApacheMySQLPHP04:52
Polahneed_suse, it doesn't have the latest Ubuntu either. Download the ISO and select that from unetbootin04:52
UoUeAaActionParsnip: do you think the patch at the end of this might work, http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=420721&page=704:52
ActionParsnipbaker: try researching, the web will answer your questions easily and free me up to help people with more technical questions04:52
Jordan_Uneed_suse: Using the disk image option might work, but that is more of a question for #suse.04:52
need_susePolah, I tryed that before.04:52
kolixguys i'm at command prompt again04:53
theadminneed_suse: Do the dd thing, seriously, it works fine according to their wiki04:53
kolixi can't get to user@hostname04:53
Polahkolix: What do you mean you can't get to it?04:53
UoUeAaActionParsnip: it's ubuntu_2.6.24-21_tifm_ms.patch.zip, and my kernel is http://paste.ubuntu.com/677700/04:53

bakerwhat about plymouth ishues with res on boot and shutdown?04:54
Polahkolix: When you first log in? Perhaps give it a few moments to show up04:54
ActionParsnipUoUeAa: the kernel version is different so not sure. Have you tried Oneiric liveCD to test there?04:54
ActionParsnipbaker: depends on video chip and used driver04:54
UoUeAaActionParsnip: what is that?04:55
ActionParsnipbaker: I'm not very interested in plymouth, as long as I get my login screen, what happens before that is of no consequence to me04:55
Hot2Trotcan someone help me with the blasted 'find' command, i swear it just don't work on my computer04:55
theadminHot2Trot: Huh?04:55
PolahHot2Trot: What are you trying to find, apart from help?04:56
theadminHot2Trot: The syntax is simple, "find directory" is the basic idea04:56
ActionParsnipUoUeAa: its the next release of ubuntu, it has a different kernel which may make it work04:56
Hot2TrotI run simple 'find '*summer*'' in my hoome directory, and in my /home/me/downloads/ there is a xxxxxsummer.pdf04:56
Hot2Trotand it just hangs forever04:56
theadminHot2Trot: That's not the way you do it04:56
theadminHot2Trot: You want: find ~ -iname '*summer*'04:56
Hot2Trotoh sorry, i pu the -name flag though04:57
Hot2Trotis the currect directory not automatic?04:57
theadminHot2Trot: Nope04:57
theadminHot2Trot: You can use . for current directory04:57
Polahtheadmin: What's the ~ for in that find command?04:57
kolixok guys walek me through this again real quick04:57
ssargenntothis isnt a strictly ubuntu based question i guess. but does anybody know a good yahoo messenger alternative to gyache or pidgin? is there another?04:57

kevin_Does anyone use the Emerald theme manager in here?05:01
kolixloged me out05:01
Hot2Trottheadmin: thanks very much05:01
Polahkolix: Or you can install them all individually like I said earlier, sudo apt-get install apache2 php5 mysql-server tomcat6 openssh-server libapache2-mod-php5 php5-mysql libapache2-mod-auth-mysql05:02
theadminHot2Trot: -type specifies filetypes to search for: f = file, d = directory, l = link05:02
kolixPolah, I'm not that advanced05:02
ActionParsnipkevin_: emerald is 3 years dead05:02
kolixI just forgot to select the packages when i had the option during installation05:02
kevin_well what do you use for a theme manager?05:02
kolixI don't have one05:03
ActionParsnipkevin_: openbox05:03
theadminkevin_: Compiz, mostly05:03
theadminkevin_: I use xf4wm here05:03
Polahkolix: Just run that command, it'll install them all and then you can configure as necessary. In fact, do this: sudo apt-get install apache2 php5 mysql-server tomcat6 openssh-server libapache2-mod-php5 php5-mysql libapache2-mod-auth-mysql && sudo a2enmod php5 && sudo service apache2 restart05:03
kolixi want the terminal to scroll automatically05:03
kevin_ok... So then how do you apply the theme?05:03
kolixi have to figure out this terminal issue first ^.^05:03
gaelfxkolix: if you're going to be using server edition, using sudo apt-get install is the most basic thing you'll be doing on it05:03
theadminkolix: Make sure scroll lock is off05:03
raj-darkmysteryone quick-question.. what command will show me the output of all the commands ran by all users in last 5 days?05:04
ActionParsnipkevin_: apply what theme?05:04
bakerpain and the ask if you ask me why not stay simple?05:04
JouvaSo I've been pulling my hair out trying to boot from a USB flash drive on a first gen MacBookPro w/ the 11.04 install/live image. I have no external optical drive so I can't use that, and my internal one is broken so my only option to do this right now is use the flash drive. And the various instructions I've seen don't help me.05:05
kolixhey guys, when ever i press alt + f1, f2 etc... the tty number changes05:05
kolixwhat is this?05:05
ActionParsnipJouva: did you MD5 test the ISO you transferred?05:05
theadminkolix: The TTY number...05:05
kevin_Jouva get unetbootin05:05
kolixwhat does it mean?05:05
kevin_it will create a bootable flash drive installer for you05:05
theadminkolix: TTYs are consoles, from 1 to 7, accessible by Ctrl+Alt+F{1-7}05:05
Jouvakevin_: Wiki says it only makes one that's bootable for WINDOWS05:06
kevin_nope it will do both05:06
JouvaOh ok lemme check that out05:06
kolixok cool05:06
Polahkolix: You have several TTYs available for use by default. You can log on as different users on each one simultaneously.05:06
Jouvakolix: Think of them as like virtual desktops in text mode05:06
theadminkolix: If you want to run several terminal programs at the same time, consider getting "tmux" or "screen"05:06
ActionParsnipJouva: it will work with crappy macs05:06
bakerjouva try a youtube video05:06
bakeror something05:06
theadminkolix: Using TTYs for that normally makes no sense05:06
Polahtheadmin, kolix: I believe screen comes by default05:06
kolixdo i need to be root to apt-get?05:07
Polahkolix: Yes, use sudo05:07
gaelfxkolix: generally, yes05:07
kolixi didn set a root password05:07
JouvaYou don't05:07
gaelfxkolix: it's the password of the first account you made05:07
theadminPolah: Not sure about that, am not an Ubuntu user for a long time05:07
Polahkolix: prepend commands with sudo and enter your own, provided the account is an administartor05:07
ActionParsnipkolix: use sudo and when asked for a password, use your login password05:08
Polahtheadmin: I remember finding it on my old install and I didn't remember installing it. Maybe I did and forgot05:08
kolixok thanks guys05:08
Jouvakolix: sudo lets you run apps under your user as root, provided that user is permitted to use sudo, which the initial user you create is allowed to by default05:08
kolixthanks for your patience ^.^05:08
raj-darkmysteryguys anyone knows? what command will show me the output of all the commands ran by all users in last 5 days?05:08
Hot2Trotis there some standard flag or option to use to make something open without keeping the asosciated virtual terminal open as well?05:09
kolixcool thanks05:09
ActionParsnipHot2Trot: use ALT+F205:09
kolixhow do i figure out this reolution situation?05:09
ActionParsnipHot2Trot: the parent process needs to be running for it's children to keep running05:09
ActionParsnipraj-darkmystery: you can use the history command to see a list of executed commands, not sure about the age though05:10
gaelfxHot2Trot: I think you can use nohup to do that05:10
PolahHot2Trot: If you're multiple programs in a terminal, like someone said before you can get 'screen' which runs several virtual screens in a single terminal which you can move between and run various commands in. Of course, if you kill the entire terminal then they'll all die.05:10
dsnydersHi all!  Is there a way of selecting two windows and tiling them?05:10
Jouvakevin_: the unetbootin page says it will only boot on Windows even if you use the Mac version05:11
Hot2TrotPolah: I am familiar with screen, so you're saying I can open a screen, runt he command, detach from the screen, and I'll still see the gui going?05:11
ActionParsnipdsnyders: are you using compiz?05:11
Polahdsnyders: Compiz can automatically tile windows if you drag them to the left or right of your screen05:11
raj-darkmysteryActionParsnip, history will show me the commands from a single user only... how I can check the commands ran by all users in an system?05:11
kevin_Jouva are you trying to install ubuntu or run it live?05:11
bakeractionparsnip  program  to burn iso on ubuntu?05:11
dsnydersActionParsnip, maybe.  I'm not sure.05:11
JouvaInstall it05:11
ActionParsnip!burner | baker05:11
ubottubaker: CD/DVD burning software: k3b (KDE), brasero (GNOME), gnomebaker, xcdroast, wodim (command-line) | To burn ISO files, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BurningIsoHowto05:11
PolahHot2Trot: Hmm, I don't know about a GUI continuing to show. The program should continue to run in the terminal. Perhaps try and find out?05:11
ActionParsnipdsnyders: do you use desktop effects?05:11
dsnydersActionParsnip, my windows are "rubbery when I move them"05:12
kevin_from OSX right?05:12
Hot2TrotPolah: just did, it does05:12
Hot2TrotPolah: curiouser and curiouser05:12
ActionParsnipdsnyders: good enough, drag a window to the side and it will snap like in Win7 etc05:12
JouvaI'm trying to install it and keep OSX05:12
PolahHot2Trot: Good to know (:05:12
gaelfxdsnyders: that's Desktop Effect :D05:12
bakerdsnyders your just getting started man or your somking some funking shiz05:13
dsnydersActionParsnip, So they'll snap but I'd still have to resize them manually?05:13
Polahdsnyders: They'll snap to half the width of your screen by default I believe05:14
Jouvakevin_: Yeah, I'm trying to install it and keep OSX, but a lot of things imply it's best to do it with a CD and not flash drive cause it's a pain, and I can see that05:14
bakerwhy not just double click top bar on window05:14
bakeropens to full like windows05:14
PolahJouva: Using a CD or USB gives you the same Live session and outcome. The only difference is the method used to start the Live session05:14
gaelfxJouva: maybe if you make a persistent Flash drive, but other than that, it should be essentially the same05:14
dsnydersbaker, I want two windows each half filling the screen.05:15
JouvaPolah: Have you successfully booted a MacBookPro from a Live version of Ubuntu via a USB flash drive?05:15
PolahJouva: I can't say I have05:15
kolixguys, my terminal is cutting off the last 4 lines, so i can see the current position in my terminal05:16
JouvaPolah: Yeah. It's a Mac. So it likes to do things its own way and get in the way with everything :P05:16
kolixhow can i fix this?05:16

sublim21can someone help a new guy  to ubuntu follow this guide?http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=16974905:18
Jouvagaelfx: That's not the problem. The problem is getting it to both recognize the USB flash drive as a bootable device AND getting it to properly start the boot process05:18
gaelfxman, I'm glad I never bought another Mac after college05:19
kolixok fixed that problem05:19
kolixnow i just have a ">" at terminal, how do i get out of this?05:19
Jouvagaelfx: And it's all a matter of how the flash drive is setup. The Wiki claims the proper way is to basically change the .iso into an img/dmg file, and dd that file to the flash drive as raw data for the partition05:19
magnushello can I please get some help?05:19
asdjaputra!ask | magnus05:19
ubottumagnus: Please don't ask to ask a question, simply ask the question (all on ONE line and in the channel, so that others can read and follow it easily). If anyone knows the answer they will most likely reply. :-)05:19

Jouvakolix: It sounds like you hit a ' or ` or some other opening quote/parenthesis/whatever. Try just hitting ctrl-c05:20
asdjaputramagnus what is it?05:20

kolixlol that worked05:21
kolixok, now how do i get a GUI on ubuntu server05:21
asdjaputrakolix, why would you?05:22

magnusI'm reeding on a guide on ubuntu on the following link https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ApacheMySQLPHP, it says "Change the DocumentRoot to point to the new location. For example, /home/user/public_html/" will the user be my username or shall i write user05:22

asdjaputrasublim21, ./configure; make; make install05:24
Polahsublim21, you don't. It's a type of archive, use tar -xvz to gunzip and untar it and then you'll be left with a directory of whatever was in the archive05:24
sublim21asdjaputra: i tried that but nothing happens05:24
sublim21wait, didn't try that05:24
kolixPolah, can you give me the commands to install LAMP again?05:24
Polahkolix: Just run that command, it'll install them all and then you can configure as necessary. In fact, do this: sudo apt-get install apache2 php5 mysql-server tomcat6 openssh-server libapache2-mod-php5 php5-mysql libapache2-mod-auth-mysql && sudo a2enmod php5 && sudo service apache2 restart05:24

asdjaputrasublim21, wait you downloaded source right?05:26
gaelfxJouva: so boot camp can't install an alternate OS from a USB? that's kinda lame05:26

Polahneed_suse: Like I said, download the image from the internet and then in unetbootin there is an option to select an existing disk image to use. You aren't restricted to just unetbootin's list of avaiable images05:36

Polahroothorick: remove pulse or use pasuspender to launch the program and suspend pulse?05:38
asdjaputrasublim21, it should work05:38
sublim21asdjaputra: updating appeared to work05:38
sublim21but i still can't get the stupid program installed.  im sorry for not understanding05:38

asdjaputradecio_, when you download an iso you can also find the MD5SUM.txt inside that same directory05:56
hetecroIt boots into OSX just fine, but I cant boot into any other partitions05:56
asdjaputradecio_, download that too, and then place it at the same directory as your ISOs are in05:56
gaelfxasdjaputra: which .iso has fluxbox by default?05:56
ActionParsnipgaelfx: fluxbuntu used to but its dead05:56
asdjaputragaelfx, find it out, many distro uses fluxbox by default (fluxbuntu)05:56
asdjaputraActionParsnip, no they said they're working on something05:57
ActionParsnipgaelfx: could install minimal then install slim and fluxbox05:57
asdjaputrahttp://www.fluxbuntu.org/ Still alive and strong :)05:57
magnusdo anybody know were I find /etc/mysql?05:57
ActionParsnipasdjaputra: ahh, thought it was gone. I used to use fluxbuntu05:57

asdjaputraHot2Trot, openshot05:59

gaelfxActionParsnip: ah, now THERE'S an idea :D05:59
glebihanasdjaputra, last release was in 07' so not sure they're trying to catch up...05:59
asdjaputradecio_, md5sum is something to check the integrity (health) of your ISO, you can find one at it's official website (ubuntu?)05:59
asdjaputraglebihan, idk either, but it's still there05:59
JoeR1razer, What is your question?06:00
asdjaputraHot2Trot, your welcome06:00
decio_can you give me the link? asdjaputra?06:00

decio_asdjaputra, OpenSUSE Live KDE06:01
ActionParsnipasdjaputra: I use lxdm on my lappy06:01
asdjaputradecio_, if you go to opensuse website06:01

asdjaputraActionParsnip, wait, are those the same?06:02
razerOK... Soo I want to install Ubuntu side by side with my Windows OS. I have the 11.04 Live CD and I know how to install using the CD. Thing is... I already have 2 OS in dual boot.

REK_007razer: yes06:02
asdjaputradecio_, and then check the FTP/HTTP download site06:02
ActionParsnipasdjaputra: just alternatives06:03
magnusI need help again :P why cant I edit the permission my mysql folder?06:03
asdjaputradecio_, you should get an MD5SUM.txt or just plain MD5SUM06:03
glebihanmagnus, why do you want to do that ?06:03
gaelfx!info slim06:03

asdjaputradecio_, just download that to the same folder as your ISOs06:04
gaelfxunguest: define overweight06:04
magnuscuz the guide tells me to write "mysql -u root -p" in terminal but i got no permission to do that06:04
asdjaputradecio_, and do this (without quotes) `md5sum -c openSUSE-11.4-KDE-LiveCD-x86_64.iso.md5'06:04
decio_@asdjaputra, yes06:04
asdjaputramagnus, sudo?06:05
decio_asdjaputra, where do I do that?06:05
asdjaputralet it run, and if it's right it'll output "openSuse-11.4-KDE-LiveCD-x86_64.iso OK"06:05

asdjaputradecio_, terminal06:05
glebihanmagnus, what guide ? what are you trying to do ?06:05
asdjaputraglebihan, my guess is install MySql06:06
magnusedit password on mysql thing :P06:06
JoeR1gaelfx, I am having a hard time doing anything right now because all the cores of my PC are maxed out so maybe you could look in the community documentation?06:06

asdjaputradecio_, without quotes, now Ctrl+C06:07
gaelfxJoeR1: hey, no worries, it's not a big deal06:07
JoeR1gaelfx, It can be doen, I have done it but my pc is going slow06:07
magnusERROR 1045 (28000): Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: NO)06:07
glebihanmagnus, the correct command would be "mysql -u root -p password", password being the one you set as mysql root password (not your user's password)06:07
magnusok :)06:07
decio_md5sum: openSUSE-11.4-KDE-LiveCD-x86_64.iso.md5: No such file or directory06:08
decio_, it says this asdjaputra06:08
magnusstill no access06:08
bazhangdecio_, is this related to ubuntu in some way?06:08
ActionParsnipdecio_: you need to change directory to the one the file is stored in06:08
glebihanmagnus, what error do you get this time ?06:09
JoeR1gaelfx, Ubuntu Tweak06:09
magnusERROR 1045 (28000): Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: NO)06:09
JoeR1gaelfx, I think I used Ubuntu Tweak to do it06:09
decio_I'm new to all this stuff. The file is on the download section06:09
asdjaputradecio_, and the ISO?06:09
glebihanmagnus, sorry I mistyped, there's no space between the "-p" and the password06:09
decio_asdjaputra, the file too06:09
asdjaputradecio_, so ISO and MD5SUM must be in the same folder, and then do that command again06:10
roothorickglebihan: mysql should prompt for a password if none is given...06:10
ActionParsnipunguest: ive not lived at home for 6 years now, 10 stone and 6' tall, not overweight at all06:10
magnusSudo thank mr glebihan xD06:11
roothorickmagnus, glebihan: Yeah, I just tried it on my server. "mysql -u root -p" produces a password prompt, which is probably a bit safer06:11
glebihanroothorick, right, but when you use "-p" without value it considers you're giving an empty password (06:11
decio_md5: No such file or directory06:11
decio_No command 'md5sum:' found, did you mean:06:11
decio_ Command 'md5sum' from package 'coreutils' (main)06:11

FloodBot1decio_: Please don't flood; use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste; don't use Enter as punctuation.06:11
unguestActionParsnipwhy Ubuntu though?06:11
unguestfit people use Windows 7.06:11
asdjaputradecio_, `md5sum -c openSUSE-11.4-KDE-LiveCD-x86_64.iso.md5'06:12
roothorickglebihan: that's not what my mysql is doing. "-p" with no value means "prompt for password"06:12
ActionParsnipunguest: it works on all my hardware, I dont have a PC strong enough to run Windows 706:12
asdjaputrawithout quotes06:12
glebihanroothorick, it may depend on some configuration on the server then, I don't get the prompt here06:12
asdjaputraand it has to be in the same folder as the ISO is06:12
ActionParsnipunguest: I dont need to pay for an OS as Ubuntu does all I need06:12
unguestActionParsnip at least you're broke. that's alright.06:12
asdjaputrabazhang, it's an openSuse question, but only regarding MD5 checking06:12

bazhangunguest, thats enough06:13
decio_asdjaputra, it keeps saying the same06:13
glebihanroothorick, but you're right, that's the expected behavior, there's something weird there06:13

calmpitbullI need help, im in grub rescue> ls (hd0,5)/boot/grub now what !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!06:17
Thelmariahetecro: If I remember right, OS X has a BSD base, but that was a fair time ago, it's deviated a fair bit from any distro I know of.06:17

roothorickhetecro: if you're at all a power user though, you'll want to tweak it a little with CCSM06:20
ActionParsniphetecro: thats dependant on the user06:22
asdjaputraActionParsnip, lol grep hell06:22

kolixI want to get usplash and a GUI on my desktop06:23
thecpaptain_yo kolix06:23
kolix..err.. i mean on ubuntu server06:23
hetecroI've always used Ubuntu because it's what I used first06:23
roothorickkolix: why?06:23
kolixi want to montior stats using a variety of top commands06:24
roothorickhetecro: make a Live USB of natty, play around with Unity a bit. It borrows a lot from W7 but introduces a lot of new things too06:24
kolixlike have 4 terminals going at the same time06:24
asdjaputrakolix, screen06:24
roothorickkolix: never tried it myself, but play with tmux06:25
hetecroHmm. Is it as user friendly as Android, but as customizable as Ubuntu?06:25
thecpaptain_i'm trying to connect to a wireless network in ubuntu without success. I can access the same network using the same computer with windows 7, and i'm able to access it using my iPod. In ubuntu i'm able to access another wireless network, yet not this one. Does anyone have an idea what the problem and the consequent solution might be ?06:25
roothorickhetecro: I genuinely doubt desktops will ever be able to touch smartphone OSes. We just expect so much more from full-blown computers.06:25
hetecro@ thecpaptain_ it is probably a security issue06:25
razerI have another question. Ubuntu is unable to detect my WLAN adapter. It was detected the first time I installed Ubuntu but now it wont. This happened only after my installation of Fedora (the latest stable release). I removed Ubuntu in order to make space for fedora and went ahead and installed Fedora. Fedora wouldn't detect my WLAN adapter so I decided to switch back to Ubuntu. After the installed finished, I realized that the same t06:25
roothorickhetecro: as for customizable, it doesn't have as many knobs and buttons as, say, GNOME, but I at least didn't miss them06:26
kolixapt-get tmux?06:26
hetecrothecpaptain_: Try changing your router to WEP temporarily and see if it picks it up06:26
roothorickrazer: sounds like a firmware issue. You may not be able to dual-boot and keep wireless on that laptop.06:27
JoeR1SO, I installed the "newest" Nvidia drivers from thier site and these driver have been rejected by my kernel (2.6.38-11) and I need to know how to get rid of them if I ever want to see my desktop again06:27

asdjaputraJoeR1, edit /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf06:28
hetecroIm assuming he means they just didn't work06:28
JoeR1roothorick: failed to load06:28
roothorickJoeR1: that's still not useful... what does dmesg say?06:28
JoeR1asdjaputra: blacklist didn't work last time because, for some reason, my system doesn't bring up the nouveau (spelling?) drivers06:29
kolixroothorick, i don't have X or anything installed06:29
asdjaputrakolix apt-get install screen, or if you want a better one use byobu (included by default)06:29
kolixcan i still use tmux?06:29
JoeR1roothorick: one  moment06:29
kolixasdjaputra, what does screen do?06:29
roothorickkolix: as I said, I have never used it myself06:30
asdjaputrakolix, it's a multiple terminal manager06:30
hetecroroothorick: You mean Natty Narwhal?06:30
kolixcan i make it look cool, like with diffrent colors and stuff06:30
asdjaputrakolix, byobu is better in the GUI side, it's a modified version of screen06:30
asdjaputrakolix, you can always edit ~/.bashrc to get colors06:30
sublim21i'll natty your face06:31
roothorickhetecro: yeah, 11.0406:31
asdjaputrakolix, see, the thing is that memory in servers are put to much better use for apache, mysql, php, and so on, rather than running GUI06:31
asdjaputrasublim21, wrong, it's i'll maverick your face :)06:31
kolixasdjaputra, but you should see my setup06:31
asdjaputrakolix, you're running a server, no?06:31
roothorickkolix: I've always had the attitude servers should do, well, server-y things, and the cool monitoring widgets should be run on a separate machine with less mission-critical tasks06:31
kolixmy server monitor is a 32' plasma running through an RCA jack06:31

asdjaputraroothorick, via ssh?06:32
kolixi want it to look cool06:32
roothorickasdjaputra: whatever gets it there securely06:32
asdjaputra!away | GNUdog06:32
ubottuGNUdog: Please do not use noisy away messages and nicks in Ubuntu channels. It is annoying and unnecessary. Use the command "/away <reason>" to set your client away silently. See also «/msg ubottu Guidelines»06:32
asdjaputraroothorick, cool, never thought of doing that, because the server is a foot away, i don't need ssh :)06:32
gaelfxkolix: why did you choose the server version then?06:33
thecpaptaingot dc06:33
roothorickasdjaputra: my server's a foot away from me and I still shell into it06:33
kolixasdjaputra: is byobu installed automatically06:33
kolixor do i just apt-get?06:33
asdjaputraroothorick, :D06:33
roothorickkolix: are we actually talking about a server here?06:33
asdjaputrakolix, run it to figure it06:33
thecpaptainas i said, its my landlords router, so i don't have access to it atm06:33
asdjaputraroothorick, no, he's installing desktop on a server :)06:33
* gaelfx facepalms06:33
roothorickkolix: does this computer actually provide services to other computers in any way, shape or form?06:34
JoeR1roothorick: API mismatch: The client has version 280.13 but the kernel module has version 270.41.0606:35
hetecroI have 2 quad-core intel Xeon 64bit processors, do I need the Amd64 image or the intel image.06:35
hetecroThe documentation. Is. Unclear06:35
roothorickJoeR1: does "sudo rmmod && sudo modprobe nvidia" fix it?06:35
roothorickJoeR1: does "sudo rmmod nvidia && sudo modprobe nvidia" fix it?06:35
JoeR1roothorick: I shall see, one moment06:35
kolixbyobu is awesome06:36
thecpaptaindoes anyone have an idea what i can do? and do you remember my situation ? hehe06:36
hetecroAnyone know the answer to my question?06:36
asdjaputrakolix, the same sentence i said when first trying it06:36
asdjaputrahetecro, amd6406:37
roothorickhetecro: either will work, but you should use amd6406:37
hetecrothecpaptain: Did you not get my suggestion?06:37
asdjaputrahetecro, it's not that 64-bits are exclusive to amd, it's that amd first apply 64-bit, so it's called amd6406:37
hetecroStrange considering the current market, but thank you06:37
hetecroDoes natty support dual processing?06:38
sublim21i got a dual processor on my little netbook06:38
roothorickhetecro: AMD actually invented the current 64bit instruction set, which Intel sort-of-coopted as EM64T. Linux calling it amd64 is something of a tradition06:38
hetecroOr even quad cores?06:38
sublim21natty works alright06:38
roothorickhetecro: Natty supports SMP just fine, I'm running it on a Phenom II X4 right now06:38
sublim21currently not being able to view flash on firefox.  don't know why06:38
ActionParsniphetecro: first to desktop 64bit. The name just stuck. It's likd IDE drives being called as they are. It just stuck06:38
kolixasdjaputra, can byobu split the screen into 4 terminals?06:39
JoeR1roothorick: it seems I will need to restart to find out before I do that can you tell me how to set gryb to ALWAYS bring up an boot menu from which I can choose what kernal to boot into?06:39
hetecroSo, two quadcore xeons will get the full treatment?06:39
ActionParsnip!flash| sublim2106:39
ubottusublim21: To install Flash see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RestrictedFormats/Flash - See also  !Restricted and !Gnash06:39
asdjaputrakolix, like terminator does? no it'll need X functionality06:39
ActionParsniphetecro: easily.06:39
roothorickActionParsnip: technically, IA64/Itanium reached the market first, but bombed... AMD made their own 64bit instruction set they called "AMD64" (hence the name) and it stuck so hard Intel was forced to use it under a different name06:39
thecpaptaincould you repeat the suggestion hetecro ?06:39
c_nickps -ef which column is the process id 2nd or 3rd06:40
thecpaptainand also tell me how to "whisper" to you :)06:40
ActionParsniproothorick: gotcha06:40
thecpaptainor you know, make you see that its you i'm talking to, even though its still public06:40
roothorickhetecro: well, your programs will have full access to them. Whether they get fully utilized is up to you ;)06:40
hetecrothecpaptain: Just temporarily change the wifi security to WEP and see if it connects06:40
hetecroIf it does, it's a security issue.06:41
thecpaptainah yes, only thing is i don't have access to the router since it belongs to my landlord06:41
ActionParsniproothorick: forgot about that. Rambus was soo pricey06:41
asdjaputrathecpaptain, use BackTrack to hack it :)06:41
hetecroAh! Is it wpa2?06:41
thecpaptainyes its wpa206:41
JoeR1roothorick: So yes or no to my grub question?06:42
calmpitbullI need help, im in grub rescue> ls (hd0,5)/boot/grub now what06:42
hetecroIt might be a kernel issue I had once connecting to AES vs TKIP06:42
thecpaptainhow do i make it so that i make your names red in the beginning ? :D06:42
thecpaptainusing backtrack sounds cool06:42
thecpaptaini'll get it from ubuntu software center ?06:42
asdjaputraJoeR1, why does grub always show boot option?06:42
roothorickJoeR1: you can edit grub.conf, as long as there's two options and a non-zero timeout you should get a prompt06:42
asdjaputraJoeR1, well what's wrong with that?06:42
JoeR1asdjaputra: It doesn't and I would like it to06:43
G00053has fglrx hit 11.9 yet ?06:43
thecpaptainhm so is there a way to fix it ?06:43
roothorickG00053: it's not even September yet! Have patience.06:43
ActionParsnipthecpaptain: its a seperate disto (ubuntu based) but will run from livecd06:43
JoeR1I shall try that, assuming I can find grub.conf, and return shortly06:43
asdjaputra/etc/grub/menu.lst --> 1.9906:43
hetecroYeah, thecpaptain, but it will be hard to diagnose06:43
asdjaputrawoops thats /boot/grub/menu.lst06:44
JoeR1wait, I need a command line document editor06:44
asdjaputraJoeR1, nano06:44
thecpaptainhm... so what's the easiest solution do you think ?06:44
G00053roothorick: I heard there was a fix coming for the issues in gnome/unity - shell06:44
thecpaptainshould i ask my landlord if its possible to change the encryption ?06:44
asdjaputra/boot/grub/grub.cfg --> 206:44
hetecroBest bet is to run a livecd of dsl or puppy, connect to the network and print the network configuration, then copy all of the info into the configuration for ubuntu06:45
roothorickG00053: a) AMD has officially said you should be using the DRI drivers instead of fglrx unless you need a specific feature the DRI drivers don't have06:45
thecpaptainActionParsnip didn't understand what you said really xD06:45
roothorickG00053: b) they do monthly releases. (20)11.8 (August). 11.9 won't be out until sometime in September.06:45
ActionParsnipthecpaptain: usb wifi known to connect to wpa2 in ubuntu ;-)06:45
G00053roothorick: fair enough06:45
rsvpwhat happens if enable-shm=no in the conf file for PULSEAUDIO ?? Does the hard drive go to work instead of RAM?06:45
thecpaptainhmm aight06:45
JoeR1Where is grub.conf?06:46
hetecrothecpaptain: Log into windows, run CMD, the. Type ipconfig -all after connecting to the network06:46
thecpaptainaight, then ?06:46
hetecroUse that information to create your configuration for ubuntu06:46
kolixasdjaputra, you still around?06:46
thecpaptainhmmm, all right06:46
asdjaputraJoeR1, /boot/grub/grub.cfg06:46
hetecroInstead of using dhcp06:46
asdjaputrakolix, yes06:46
thecpaptainbut i might need some help with the configuration depending on the level of complexity06:47
kolixasdjaputra, you said i need X to split the screen into 4 terminals06:47
thecpaptainbut i'll do that and return06:47
kolix4 terminals going at the same time ont he same screen06:47
roothorickJoeR1: apparently you're supposed to be editing /etc/grub.d and /etc/default/grub instead...06:47
asdjaputrakolix, CMIIW, yes06:47
thecpaptainso should i go into windows, run cmd, acquire that information and then return to ubuntu ?06:48
hetecroKk. Remember that google has plenty of docs on the subject of creating custom kexts and such for these configurations06:48
thecpaptaini'll be back in a min then :)06:48
thecpaptainthanks up till now06:48
asdjaputracorrect me if im wrong06:48
kolixso with X i can change the terminal colors and stuff?06:49
kolixand just type a command to pane the terminals?06:50
asdjaputrakolix, changing colors could be done by editing ~/.bashrc06:50
asdjaputrakolix, but memorizing the color codes is hard06:50
kolixhow do i get X using apt-get?06:51
kolixi'm extremely new to linux06:51
asdjaputrakolix, yes06:51
asdjaputrakolix, if you want a desktop why download a server06:51
BILLYKANE1apt-get install x-window-system-core06:52
asdjaputrakolix, fancy colored prompts is not the server style :D06:52
sublim21y u no work?06:53
kolixit's installing :)06:54
natalieevening all06:54
kolixno, do i need some type of terminal manager to split the screen to 4 terminals06:54
BILLYKANE1kolix,try dvtm06:55
kolixBILLYKANE1, I just installed X06:55
kolixdoes X come with a terminal manager?06:56
asdjaputrakolix, you have to install it06:56
nataliemy PC died (slow long beeps) and i have a laptop from '95 that i have lubuntu on. works great so far, but, i have my 1920x1080 screen connected to it. getting a little flicker, but seems ok. problem is i can only 'mirror' the screens. what would be the best utility to add to lubuntu to get more dual screen features???06:56
kolixok X is finished installing, how do i run this thing?06:56
thecpaptainso this is what i got06:57
sublim21asdjaputra: what was that website i sent you earlier?06:57
sublim21im too fucked up to even browse these logs on this new fangled operating system06:58
ubottuPlease watch your language and topic to help keep this channel family-friendly, polite, and professional.06:58
BILLYKANE1dvtm can work without X,no maybe you can install dwm or some other window manager06:58
asdjaputrasublim21, hellaznb is on 404 (not found)06:58
JoeR1Well that did not work06:59
thecpaptaini got the ipconfig from the cmd, what am i to do with the information ? http://paste.ubuntu.com/677737/06:59
natalieor even set my 1920x1080 monitor as default06:59
JoeR1what is the command to show the kernel version I am using?06:59
thecpaptainor rather, what information can i use ?06:59
BILLYKANE1 JoeR1,uname -a07:00
JoeR1right, remembered just before you said that07:00
JoeR1but thanks07:00
JoeR1also I am pleased to report that i did edit my grub.cfg correctly so at least I am booting the right kernel07:01
kolixBILLYKANE1, dvtm is nice07:01
kolixhow do i uninstall X?07:01
asdjaputrakolix, why?07:01
JoeR1I need to rollback or get rid of the Nvidia drivers I currently have07:02
kolixasdjaputra, i don't need both07:02
asdjaputraboth dvtm and X?07:02
asdjaputraisn't dvtm window manager that runs on X07:02
BILLYKANE1apt-get uninstall x-window-system-core07:03
BILLYKANE1dvtm,twin and vwm,that is it07:03
nataliekolix, open the software centre and simply deselect the driver. DO NOT uninstall X07:04
JoeR1So, any advice on how to fix the driver issue I am having?07:04
kolixnatalie, i don't have a GUI installed07:04
kolixI'm running ubuntu server07:04
kolixBILLYKANE1: sudo apt-get dvtm?07:05
natalieummm... ok, sorry mate, not sure why you would then add a proprietry graphics driver. can offer no more help07:05
klawdhi! how can i run a script after hibernate?07:05
thecpaptaini've done what you told me to do, now what do i do with the information i've acquired ? http://paste.ubuntu.com/677737/07:06
kolixinvalid operation: dvtm07:06
hplpbkolix: you need 'install' somewhere in there07:06
BILLYKANE1apt-get install dvtm07:07
crazi have 15days until i go back to school, what can i do/learn in 15days? lol07:07

kolixi was just looking for a tutorial07:09
sublim21asdjaputra: alright.  im going to quit trying hellanzb and am going to try something else.  how can i uninstal programs?07:09
asdjaputrasudo apt-get purge07:09
thecpaptainhehe, and i'm trying to connect to a wireless network with a WPA2 encrypt :)07:10
kolixbilly, is top the best for statisitc monitoring?07:10
=== sparky is now known as eskim0
kolixlike htop, iftop, etc07:10
Secrisubuntu doesn't recognize my screen resolution07:11
JoeR1does irssi keep multiple channel open?07:11
BILLYKANE1kolix,I think htop is much better07:11
gaelfxJoeR1: use joeck-text -d [driver], that will disable it07:11
gaelfxJoeR1: jockey-text, sorry07:11
BILLYKANE1however ,in many case ,I still need to run kill -9 manually07:12
JoeR1gaelfx: Do I need only the version number or an ID that I would need to query a terminal to find?07:12
icerootBILLYKANE1: kill -9 is always a bad idea07:12
ThelmariaJoeR1: Yes, Irssi will keep mutliple channels open. Irssi + screen is amazing.07:12
JoeR1Thelmaria: How do I switch between them?07:13
gaelfxJoeR1: jockey-text -l should list the drivers enabled, use the name that that tells you07:13
BILLYKANE1iceroot,you are right07:13
ThelmariaJoeR1: Alt + <n> where <n> is a number.07:13
JoeR1gaelfx: Thank you, I will07:13
JoeR1Thelmaria: Thanks07:13
icerootBILLYKANE1: http://partmaps.org/era/unix/award.html#uuk9letter07:14
gaelfxJoeR1: note that that only disables it, it won't actually remove it. But if it's disabled, you can still re-enable it without installing again07:14
ThelmariaJoeR1: Down the bottom of your irssi screen you should have something like "16:44 JoeR1 blah blah Act: 3,4" -- the numbers after Act: are the channels which have had input since you last looked at them.07:14
ThelmariaJoeR1: No numbers = no new stuff.07:14
norbert79Good morning. I am looking for finding the device file for Bluetooth in /dev, but failed to do so so far. I would like to use Bluetooth under wine, but for that I would like to know which device file I have to link. It's not rfcomm*, I am already through that part.07:15
BILLYKANE1iceroot,mostly ,I use -9 to kill opera."shut down socket connections,that is it"07:15
icerootBILLYKANE1: read the text07:15
gaelfxnorbert79: I think it's a different part of /dev for different kinds of bluetooth devices07:15
norbert79gaelfx: Well, sure, but since I am clueless where to look, some advice would be welcome.07:15
gaelfxnorbert79: for example, a mouse or keyboard would be something like hid, whereas headset would be something like audio07:16
BILLYKANE1iceroot,Thanks,next time I will try the suggestions.07:16
norbert79gaelfx: Right now I have a phone added as Bluetooth device, and would like to use COM transfer07:16
norbert79gaelfx: Yet I don't see anything which might point as being available for such07:16
sublim21alright so i installed a program called hellanzb.  im super dumb.  i'm running natty on  a netbook.  how do i remove it with apt-get?07:16
sublim21what magic words shall be typed into the terminal07:16
sublim21oh pray tell masters of the natty07:17
norbert79sublim21: If you have installed it through dpkg or apt-get, use either "dpkg -r" or "apt-get purge" and the name of the package07:17
gaelfxnorbert79: yeah, I'm not sure where that would show up, but it does seem that /dev is this most likely place. lemme check07:17
norbert79gaelfx: Sure, thank you...07:17
norbert79gaelfx: /dev let me down unfortunetaly... :(07:18
sublim21norbert79: thanks nor.  btw, your brother q.  kind of sucks.07:18
norbert79sublim21: Whatever you say :)07:18
gaelfxnorbert79: com transfer as in a remote control?07:18
kolixwhat does CTRL+g mean in linux?07:19
kolixCTRL + the g key?07:19
norbert79gaelfx: Yes, would like to make possible running a phone-handling application running07:19
BILLYKANE1 kolix:,that is the way dvtm shorcut works:press down ctrl,then press g,then release both. then press C07:20
norbert79gaelfx: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BluetoothDialup This helped me a bit, but since the description is rather very old I thought there might be other solutions too...07:20
gaelfxnorbert79: did you check the bluetoothremotecontrol page?07:20
norbert79gaelfx: Since I doubt this has been left as it is...07:20
norbert79gaelfx: Not yet, but the weird thing is, that I AM able to remote control my desktop through the phone WITHOUT any tricks07:21
norbert79gaelfx: So this is why I doubt I would need to hack /etc/bluetooth, and there must be a dev present in /dev07:22
norbert79gaelfx: But I might be still wrong07:22
zed_Hello, is there anyone know how to play *.MTS format file?07:22
gaelfxnorbert79: I think you would need to edit that to change functionality, but I'm not sure how to, sorry07:23
zed_kmplay looks like not work07:23
norbert79zed_: Did you try VideoLan?07:23
norbert79zed_: VLC seems handling it07:23
zed_norbert79, VideoLan? Ok, I'll try it.07:24
zed_Thank you all~. :-)07:24

JoeR1Woo Hoo! Welcome back GUI!07:45
thecpaptainso which one of them should i choose ?07:45
gaelfxJoeR1: nouveau works?07:45
thecpaptainsudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get -f install ??07:45
asdjaputratheadmin, oh right, thanks for the info07:46
theadminthecpaptain: Do that, yes07:46
thecpaptaingot it07:46
JoeR1gaelfx, It does, however i will most likely be returning to the Nvidia drivers once I clear that up - it will depend on how well nouveau does hd content07:46
thecpaptainErrors were encountered while processing:  /var/cache/apt/archives/linux-image-2.6.32-33-generic_2.6.32-33.72_i386.deb E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)07:47
gaelfxJoeR1: I've never really used it so I don't know, but I will say that VDPAU does WONDERS for me07:47
theadminthecpaptain: Nothing too good... Try the command again, but before it this time do "sudo apt-get clean"07:47
JoeR1gaelfx, I have heard VDPAU mentione frequently, what is it?07:47
gaelfxJoeR1: if you want to get rid of the old NVidia drivers, I suggest apt-get -purge nvidia-current or whatever07:48
gaelfxJoeR1: it's a way to make sure that tough video processing is handled by the video card and not the CPU07:48
thecpaptaini'm on it, its processing07:48
JoeR1gaelfx, I will be taking a different apporache because the driver were installed from the Nvidia website and therefore are not listed by jockey07:49
gaelfxJoeR1: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VDPAU07:49
JoeR1gaelfx, You misunderstand, i want to know WHAT VDPAU is.07:49
JoeR1ah, I see07:49
gaelfxJoeR1: ah, yes, that is generally a bad idea. Jockey makes things much simpler, especially w/ regards to kernel updates07:49

jasonmsphey all.  I'm looking into options for setting up a softphone and getting a telephone number so when I am out of the country clients can ring me.  What are your thoughts on Dimondcard  and are there other alternatives for setting up a line to my computer?  On the linux side what program is best?  Empathy, Ekiga, Twinkle, etc?07:55

jasonmsp(other than skype .. ) =_07:56
minhthongasdjaputra, I use zorin OS 5 . When I finish update driver, the splash is problem07:56
minhthonghow can I fix it?07:56
theadminminhthong: We do not support derivatives.07:56
theadminminhthong: The only distributions this channel supports are Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu, Lubuntu and maybe a few others07:56
minhthongbut zorin OS is ubuntu 1107:56
theadminminhthong: ZorinOS is not a supported deriv07:56
gaelfxminhthong: what he means is that it's only based on Ubuntu 11, with some changes, which most of us here don't know anything about07:57
norbert79jasonmsp: other than skype... Well... Emulation is out of the question, right? (Wine)07:58
minhthongyes it's only based on U 1107:58
jasonmspnorbert79:  well I have virtualbox setup right now with windows xp.  I don't know enough about wine to be comfortable with it at this point.07:58
theadminminhthong: We can't support it. Sorry.07:59

iballhi, i have a ubuntu desktop with a scsi hba... i have some old legacy audio workstation hardware which uses scsi and ide, i was wondering if i could connect the workstation directly to the hba and have ubuntu emulate scsi/ide hard disks?07:59
norbert79!vopi jasonmsp08:00
ubottuVoIP is Voice over IP. The default VoIP client for Ubuntu is !Ekiga. There is also an xmpp voice component in !Empathy. Kubuntu Clients include Kphone and Twinkle. Proprietary Clients include !Skype and Gizmo5. VoIP server applications include Asterisk and Yate ( both in repositories ), FreePBX, and SipX.08:00
theadminminhthong: We do not support ZorinOS. However, in regular Ubuntu, that can be done with a tool called "StartUp Manager" if I recall right08:00
gaelfxJoeR1: ok, what's up?08:00
norbert79jasonmsp: ^^08:00
norbert79Never heard of Gizmo5 though08:00
minhthongtheadmin, yes i want to ask for u 11. what software is best to change splash?08:01
jasonmspnorbert79:   yeah I'm reading the community docs on Ekiga now.08:01
jasonmspnorbert79:  Is dimondcard the only provider or are there others/08:02
norbert79jasonmsp: If you need real phone access I guess Gizmo5 would be useful, otherwise I would recommend Mumble for voip transfer.08:02
norbert79jasonmsp: I have no idea unfortunetaly. I only used Skype so far08:02
theadminminhthong: Well, you've got the answer. I only know one such software to do it via a GUI08:02
norbert79jasonmsp: And I assume you live in the US, while I am sitting in EU. So I am not familiar with the providers either.. :(08:03
minhthongtheadmin, how about supper grub 2?08:03
minhthongtheadmin, does it good?08:03
theadminminhthong: That's got nothing to do with bootsplashes at all, it's a recovery tool08:03
jasonmspnorbert79:  well techinically I'm, in the middle east at the moment, but I tunnel into our servers in the US.08:03
gaelfxminhthong: I'm not sure that's what you use for splash screens08:03
norbert79jasonmsp: Yet, you might also consider Google's solution too08:03
urlin2uminhthong, supergrub is for booting broken setups08:04

chalcedony when you install off the CD does it allow you to select the drive for installation?09:14
Andy1978razounette: you should always make a backup of your important data before playing with gparted...09:14

yezariaelyDJHalcyon: does this patch really apply to the version you have?09:15
DJHalcyonyezariaely: I really have no idea. I need to get this device to work, and I lack either of the supported OSes, I found a patch that said it would add support for it in Linux. I'm really newbing it up here.09:16

andeeeuk_anyone see this error before: Failed to retrieve share list from server I am trying to access wondows share09:18
Andy1978razounette: even at this point when you did not make a backup before, you should do NOW make a backup with dd before trying to rescue the partition09:18
andeeeuk_anyone see this error before: "Failed to retrieve share list from server" I am trying to access wondows share09:19
razounetteAndy1978: yep, y backed it up with ddrescue09:19
JadedJacobAndy1978:why would he use DD over ddrescue09:20
Andy1978JadedJacob: it's not a physical problem rather a user problem09:20

javier__Hi. I have the audio problem after  trying hdmi audio. I think I changed settings and selected hdmi output sound and can't turn it back to normal. So I don't have sound in banshee or radio Tray, but I do in vlc for example. Some help?09:40
Tank852zagibu: Where did it install to?09:41
andeeeuk_samba is buggy, DO NOT INSTALL.... at least not with 11.0409:42
Andy1978Tank852: you can see the difference with "ls -l". Nevertheless: you your brain: do you trust the .bin file? Then: Is ist some sort of installer? Then it needs perhaps root rights and has to be run with sudo09:42
Tank852okay thx anyway09:44
e01can somebody help me with installing ubuntu 11.04 server on sw-raid09:46
zagibuTank852: a bin file is just a binary file...it can be anything...if you make it executable and try to run it, you will see what happens. It might not work at all, or it might start a nice installer-gui or something09:47

dr-willisyou can then easily mount the rescued  image via mount10:05

paul_ukgelian, im using thundar ok i'll ask in xbuntu10:59
dr-willisxqix9u2v:  i got vnc on my phone. not x10:59
Kingsydr-willis: that worked :) just two things, first when I frist connected I got an error saying I didnt have the hardware to run the selected config and to select gnome-classic ??10:59
xqix9u2vno need for vnc if you are going to run jwm lol11:00
nisstyreI would tend to disagree with that viewpoint11:00
glebihanpaul_uk, I think it's the same in thundar as in nautilus11:00
dr-willisKingsy:  tep.. thats why i suggest a wm other then gnome11:00
agoristduane2Hey I think I was able to get to the install page...I say " i think" because after i selected install ubuntu i was brought to a black screen with an empty gray box in the middle any suggestions as to what the problem could be?11:00
dr-willisjwm is ideal for vnc. about as light as you can get11:01

chewy_guys, is gnome 3 available in ubuntu 11.04? i mean i saw tutos and ppas, but from april. what s the standard procedure installation today, and can we have it in a 11.04 system without messing the unity one? (a gdm with 2 choices for instance?)11:01
xqix9u2vdr-willis,try reading this http://tldp.org/HOWTO/XDMCP-HOWTO/ssh.html11:02
glebihan!gnome3 | chewy_11:02
ubottuchewy_: Gnome 3 is not currently supported on Ubuntu. A PPA for natty is available at https://launchpad.net/~gnome3-team/+archive/gnome3 but these packages are EXPERIMENTAL and UNSTABLE, will break Unity and possibly other parts of your system, and cannot be downgraded safely.11:02
xqix9u2vx already runs over network11:03
xqix9u2vno need for vnc in your case11:03
dr-willisxqix9u2v:  my case? what case.11:04
dr-willisive used xdmcp for 10+ years. it has its pros and cons.11:04
xqix9u2vif you are running jwm for vnc that is pointless...  might as well run your regular wm11:04
dr-willisvnc also has its pros anc cons11:05
dr-willisxqix9u2v:  you are confused about vnc i think11:05
xqix9u2vyes, but the whole point of vnc is that you get to use whatever wm you want11:06
dr-willisa complex destop can make vnc very slow.11:06
xqix9u2vif you like jwm fine11:06
xqix9u2vyou probably do not have a root window jpeg/wallpaper in jwm thats why it feels fast to you11:07
Kingsydr-willis: xqix9u2v: thanks for your help.. it works which is a start11:07
xqix9u2vvnc is only limited by network speed11:07

lion42However, I would recommend re-asking your question at a later hour, and my only personal recommendation would be to ensure that you're installing a copy of ubuntu compatible with your system, and trying a fresh copy if that's the case.11:09

chewy_glebihan, thanks. so that means it can break the system. i thought there would be some gdm choosing DE with the install. Thanks for your help11:35
marekw2143volga629: but what's interesting, in "Wired" I don't see anything, but I've defined /etc/networks/interfaces with vim for wired connection11:35
glebihanMK`, well... "ps -ef" could be a start11:35
chewy_glebihan, with a gdm DE choice, unity or gnome3, this would just crash the X session, but nothing else. if some libs are involved, definitely not funny.11:35

jurilhi.. I'm trying to get to work a GT520M Nvidia video card on an ASUS u30sd with ubuntu 11.04.. drivers install correctly.. but after issuing nvidia-xconfig gdm doesn't start and X hangs.. nvidia-xconfig creates /etc/X11/xorg.conf, could be the culprit?14:24

zykotick9eduardoinsweden, you do need a separate partition for swap yes (swap files are a poor substitute for the real thing).  Why did you create your partitions in windows?  FYI FAT/NTFS can't be used for installing Ubuntu, only for storage.15:15
PiciBrianOfTacoma: That will search your entire computer for mp3 files and deletes them. Switch / with the path to the files. Also, you should use -delete instead the -exec rm -rf {} \; part15:16
