FluffyMittensOfDexutux, I already have.00:01
dr_williskingofswords:  chmod +x foo.sh  then ./foo.sh00:01
kingofswordsdr_willis, thanks00:01
escottsam555, its unclear what you mean by "log" there is a filesystem log which is part of ext3 and ext4 and it will be recovered if there is a unclean umount, but that is done by fsck. if you want to know if the drive is failing look at the smart status in the disk utility or use smartmon-tools00:02
dr_williskingofswords:  dare we ask what this script is doing? :)00:02
kingofswordsdr_willis, do i have to add the path aswell?00:02
MneumonicHi, I have a weird issue.  About halfway through booting my laptop screen dims to 0 brightness and i have to manually use the Fn keys to raise brightness back up.  I know I was able to fix this last time i reinstalled by having some command start at boot that put brightness at max but i dont remember what it is00:02
kingofswordsdr_willis, veetle player00:02
dr_williskingofswords:   ./foo.sh   -> is giving the full path..  so in this example no.00:02
dr_willis /path/to/whatever/foo.sh00:02
escottMneumonic, the command will echo an integer to /sys/something/backlight/brightness00:02
battlehandsIm running the latest 32 bit version of ubuntu, and the bar that has things like: firefox, folder, ubuntu software center, ect... will not hide when Im not mousing over it.  This problem has only been happening today.  Before today, when I wasnt mousing over the bar it would automatically hide.  Can someone help me?00:03

Mneumonicthat doesn't work00:03
escottsam555, fsck is not logged, it is an interactive process00:04

escottsam555, so in terminal fsck /dev/sdX# replacing X# as appropriate sda1 or sdb2 etc00:04
Mneumonicit was an echo command but i can't seem to find the right one00:04
MneumonicI thougth it was like /sys/class/backlight/acpi_video/brightness00:04

FluffyMittensOfDexutux, I'm aware. I'm confused on what I need to do. There is more documentation to drown in then getting it installed00:05

sam555escott: Can I run fsck while people are using the server?00:05
escottMneumonic, echo 99 > /sys/class/.... as identified, just be sure to do it inside a sudo -i terminal00:05

DaVampsWinsoreau : ati radeon 925001:20
soreauDaVampsWin: Try booting with radeon.modeset=0 or the nomodeset option as dr_willis suggested01:21
dr_willisthe url i gave. shows how to use the options.01:22
soreauDaVampsWin: Also, you may need to disable your onboard graphics in the bios if applicable01:22
DaVampsWincheckin on the nomodeset now01:22
dr_willisYou did plug the video cable into the right port? :)01:22
dr_willis(been there, did that wrongly befor)01:22
DaVampsWindr_willis : yes.. pci to pci.01:22
soreaudr_willis: or the left one ;)01:22
soreauDaVampsWin: he said video cable, not video card01:23
DaVampsWinoopsie.. lol.. its plugged to the stand vga out01:23
soreauDaVampsWin: And does the motherboard have onboard graphics?01:24
angelicaldumbhello there, i have  installed ubuntu 11.04 on a usb drive but when i try to boot system stuck on a flashing cursor screen, what s wrong?01:24
DaVampsWinsoreau : yes.. going to see if i can disable it in the bios01:24
soreauangelicaldumb: Does it sit there forever or how long did you wait?01:25
HiDeHoangelicaldumb:  how have you installed it to usb01:25
sam555can this command work on ubuntu? e2fsck -f -b 8193 /dev/sda301:26
angelicaldumbsoreau, i ve waited more than 5 minutes i guess it s forever01:26
HiDeHoangelicaldumb: also do you know what md5sum is and what its for.01:26
soreausam555: e2fsck should work, yes..01:26
sam555soreau: i just wasn't seeing the -b switch on the man for ubuntu01:26
HiDeHoangelicaldumb: those are the first to things we need to know about.01:27
soreausam555: e2fsck --help ?01:27
angelicaldumbHiDeHo , have installed it using the live cd , i know what md5sum is for , theres nothing wrong with the iso01:27
hyperstreamMy networking manager gui becomes unresponsive, Clicking any button has no effect, all my VPN listings dissapear(leaving a 1px high box.) more networks also dissapears.  RESTARTING network manager does not fix this issue, only a reboot. Is there any information on this at all?01:27
hyperstreamSorry if i said this moments ago, im having connectivity issues.01:28
sam555soreau: got it! thanks01:28
HiDeHoangelicaldumb: ok what os do you currently have on hdd01:28

angelicaldumbHiDeHo , i have no hard drive , right know i am using an usb live ubuntu on a fat16 partition01:29
soreauhyperstream: Tried restarting nm-applet?01:29
DaVampsWindr_willis : any extras that i need to change besides nomodeset?01:29
HiDeHoangelicaldumb: did you try to install again. also another thing is you coudl try to install it from your main os on the computer using unetbootin.01:29

soreauDaVampsWin: no01:29
HiDeHook no hdd on computer weird.01:29
DaVampsWinok ty.. lets see what this gives me01:30
HiDeHoangelicaldumb: what are you wanting the usb for01:30
hyperstreamsoreau, i will give that a shot right now, not sure if i'll disconnect. Brb01:30
HiDeHoangelicaldumb: oops there i go again sorry not meaning to 101 questions01:30
=== WhatsCuttingEkSa is now known as ben_stein
hyperstreamsoreau, what is the correct way to restart this?01:30
HiDeHoangelicaldumb: do you just need to have a working computer.  till you get a hdd01:31
soreauhyperstream: Probably 'killall nm-applet' and then 'nm-applet' from Alt+F2 run dialog01:31
DaVampsWinyaaaaaaaaaaay nomodeset got me in to ubuntu01:31
angelicaldumbHiDeHo , i want the usb to run ubuntu 11.04 right know its running like a livecd but on an usb pen drive using a fat16 parttion that cant be bigger than 4gb01:31
soreauDaVampsWin: cool. did you disable onboard graphics?01:31
HiDeHoy fat 1601:31
hyperstreamsoreau, you my friend, are the best. a month this issue has been hassling me01:32
DaVampsWinsoreau : not yet, going to reboot and hit the bios to see what i can do01:32
soreauhyperstream: Glad I could help :)01:32
HiDeHoangelicaldumb: ok can i pm you01:32
=== Dion is now known as Guest29630
angelicaldumbHiDeHo , i have tried other formats but fat16 is the only one that works01:32
soreauDaVampsWin: If it's working and 'lspci|grep VGA' looks ok (doesn't show two gpu's) then you should be ok01:32

DaVampsWinsoreau : after that without editing grub, it booting with video all he way to the login.. then i get white daigonal lines. with no show of the login area.01:35
soreauDaVampsWin: Now the kernel option you gave is not persistent. ie. it wont 'stick' across reboots. If it's still a problem without nomodeset, you will have to edit a file to make it persistent01:35
soreauOh cool01:35

TiktalikIs there a way to update my graphics drivers??01:37
michael_phi anyone recomend of getting gnome 301:38
soreauDaVampsWin: What you should know is that your older radeon is one of the lowest supported by the radeon driver (it's an r200 chipset) and the new KMS driver (kernel modesetting) may not work with that card well, or at all01:38
soreauDaVampsWin: So you may have to settle for the old driver by having the radeon driver load without modesetting by default01:38
soreauTiktalik: What problem are you having?01:38
xangua!gnome3 | michael_p01:39
ubottumichael_p: Gnome 3 is not currently supported on Ubuntu. A PPA for natty is available at https://launchpad.net/~gnome3-team/+archive/gnome3 but these packages are EXPERIMENTAL and UNSTABLE, will break Unity and possibly other parts of your system, and cannot be downgraded safely.01:39

DaVampsWinsoreau : ok, sounds a little tricky01:40
soreauDaVampsWin: Though I guess you could have your kernel load with nomodeset (or radeon.modeset=0) but that doesn't make as much sense01:40

DaVamps-Ubuntusoreau, would it be a wise idea to see if i can get the linux drivers for my card while in ubuntu now?02:16

bjvQ: Is there a GUI tool to edit/create custom Launchers for Unity?   alacarte is ~20Megs of extra packages and I am not sure it will do what i want..02:18

escottbjv, yes freedesktop houses the standards (such as they are)02:20
DaVamps-Ubuntusoreau, in qoutes after or included in the quotes already present?02:20

bjvno luck searching (found alacarte)02:21
escottbjv, the main one is alacarte. i dont know of any others02:21
soreauDaVamps-Ubuntu: Included in the quotes. So "quiet splash" would become "quiet splash radeon.modeset=0"02:21

bjvsome guy whos just like: "oh yeah, just edit this, then open gconf that, then create another folder where"02:24
bjvwith no links or sources on where he's getting these unity instructions for launcher creation.02:24
=== Giac0m0 is now known as Giac0m0|AFK
theadminbjv: I think it just uses stuff in /usr/share/applications, ~/.local/share/applications and a few other places maybe02:24
zykotick9bjv, assuming lxmed really is cross-DM, i highly doubt it would work for Unity (but I have 0 evidence)02:25
bjvzykotick9: i use nokia Maemo which is mostly .desktop's everywhere and /usr/share/application stuff02:26
bjvso it all sounded sort of like boilerplate freedesktop stuff.02:26
zykotick9bjv, does Unity use either?02:26
bjvaccording to this guy, yeah  http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php?p=9910899&postcount=402:26
bjvonly instructions i could find on adding custom launchers to unity02:27
escottbjv, it was my impression that unity still uses the launchers02:28

sstchurUbuntu 11 here, and wanting to get setup with ruby on rails 3, but it seems that via apt-get, I'm given rails 2.3.5.  I've found a few articles online searching, but no really clear guides on how best to get setup with rails 3.  Or this a question for a ruby channel instead?  Advice appreciated02:58
interlocutori hear that in place distrobution upgrades on highly customized systems is pretty much a recipie for disaster...is this true?  Like if I installed 11.04 today, then customized it to hell, and then did idst-upgrade to 11.10, would I be risking it?02:58
theadmininterlocutor: Yes.02:59

nac-godfatheryeah, don't even touch your ruby, is my opinion, I just messed mine up royally the other night trying to update03:00
sstchurinterlocutor, ok, I've read a bit about RVM and gave it a shot, yesterday but it was such a disaster -- I royally screwed things up03:01
interlocutorRVM is a wonderful thing03:01

interlocutoreverything is self-contained, so you can't screw up that badly03:01

sstchurinterlocutor, does one need to first remove everything that was installed with apt-get?03:01
dave__warning: possible political question.  why did ubuntu switch to Unity over GNOME in 11.04?03:01
theadmindave__: Cause Unity is more netbook-friendly and it's also a Canonical software03:02
sstchurinterlocutor, this is my confusion?  the RVM guides don't seem to clearly explain all what you need to get started03:02
sstchurfor instance, when I tried the curl command which was supposed to run the install script, nothing happened03:02
interlocutorwell, do you have curl installed?03:02
HSPdave_: Unity is used also because Gnome 2 is being phased out03:02
escottdave__, they already had something developed with the netbook remix so they decided to extend it rather than use gnome3 which wasnt on their timeline03:03
sstchurshould I apt-get remove rails before I start with RVM?03:03
hyperstreamdave__, you dislike unity ? :) I hated at first, took me a week to get used to - much quicker. i like the idea of searching for everything rather than mousing stuff. Nerd much :x03:03

[THC]AcidRainok. need a little help. when linux boots. i think grub is trying to mount my 2 external drives03:05
interlocutoryep, and here's the one I used03:05
[THC]AcidRainhow do i get them to mount when computer loads?03:06
dave__theadmin, hyperstream, HSP :  its not that i dont like unity, i was just curious if somebody at GNOME pissed off somebody at ubuntu (canonical)03:06
dave__i find gnome works fine03:06
[THC]AcidRainor... perhaps i think its trying to boot from them. i started having this issue after a bios upgrade03:06
dave__maybe unity has performance increases?03:06
theadmindave__: If you've seen Gnome3 you wouldn't think so.03:06
dhyesstchur, to install rails, first install ruby, get latest ruby version then install it, to install rails simply execute gem install rails03:06
sstchurOn a completely unrelated note, I have a Samsung QX410 and while the touchpad works in Ubuntu, the inability to disable touchpad while typing is driving me crazy -- anyone know a solution for this (besides manually hitting fn+f10 to disable/enable touchpad)?03:06
sstchurdhye, but taht will give me rails 2.3.5 wont it?03:06
escottdave__, gnome3 and unity are very similar03:06
=== nitro is now known as Guest2177
hyperstreamdave__, i admit, im also using gnome at current. Waiting on one piece of software i use to support unity :). Its due any time :)03:07
hyperstreamdave__, VPNAutoconnect hasnt been updated to be exact :)03:07

[THC]AcidRainhow do i remove menu items from places?03:09
dave__hyperstream, lol yea i was going to guess something with the network manager in general03:09
BashAre there any dangers with allocating a partition from a NTFS one, installing ubuntu onto it when I already have Windows 7 installed on another hard-drive? (and want to dual-boot?)03:09
theadminbsmith093: You probably would rather want broadcom-wl, b43 is somewhat old03:09
dave__HSP, i will give it a shot, though im sure my parents are going to be bitching as they just started to figure out their way around GNOME03:10
theadminBash: Defragment the NTFS partition, run a chkdsk /f on it, after which resize it and create an ext4 partition in the resulting space to install Ubuntu on.03:10
HSPBash: Dual boot implies two OSs on the same drive.  Do you have two drives or a single drive with multiple OSs?03:10
wildbat1Bash: not much ~ i did alot NTFS resize and moving be4.03:10
bsmith093i would like to enable monitor mode, which one does that, im running kernel 2.6.32-33-generic lucid03:10
BashHSP: Multiple drives.03:10
Bashtheadmin: The installer can handle that after chkdsk?03:11
HSPdave__: They won't bitch about no viruses.  Where I work, we run mostly Windows and drive-by downloads, scareware, etc. are continuously plaguing our PCs03:11
theadminBash: Sure, but you might also want to resize the partition from within Windows if you have win7. It's much faster.03:11
theadminEither way, I gtg.03:12
bsmith093currently\, according to network manager, im running the "wl" driver, not the "broadcom-wl" driver, if ther's a difference03:12
Bashtheadmin: Right. But there's no huge risk when installing ubuntu with it overwriting MBR as in the old days?03:12
bsmith093so is there a driver for lucid, that supports the bcm4312 monitoring mode, and the other things?03:13
dave__HSP: true i have had them on since about 2007 and honestly, no real problems.  plus i dont have to worry about them downloading some bat or exe and running it on "accident"03:13
HSPBash: then you probably won't dual-boot.... unless you have two drives in a single system, but in that case your BIOS is going to set one as the default boot device.  I suppose if that were the case you could install Ubuntu on one drive and edit the Grub config to have one of the menu items be Win7 on the other drive03:13
sstchurinterlocutor, <sigh> that guide doesn't work03:13
wildbat1Bash: the installation will have option that where you want GURB install, just keep eyes open :>03:14
dhyesstchur, yes it is, but you van install manuall of rails depend which version do you want03:14
=== wildbat1 is now known as wildbat
HSPdave__: my kids use Linux Mint Debian for that very reason.  Every OS has it's issues and I've got complaints about Linux for sure but I still love it for a lot of reasons.03:14
sstchurdhye, how do I specify the version of rails?03:14
interlocutorsstchur: you're probably thinking that RVM is install and forget, you have to USE the environment03:14
interlocutoryou actually run your apps inside an RVM environment03:15
[THC]AcidRainok im getting an error saying the mount point does not exist. how do i remove the mountpoint so i can readd it?03:15
interlocutorI think you need to do some more reading03:15
escott[THC]AcidRain, mountpoint is the directory that you attach to. you need to mkdir the mountpoint03:15
dave__general question though:  my dad is into video editing.  now he is currently using "cinelerra-cv" suite.  im kinda done with it.  anybody know any other good opensource video editing software for linux?03:15
BashHSP: Right, maybe dual-boot is the wrong word for it, but wondering if I can install ubuntu onto a drive and select that drive to be main boot drive, in which I point Grub to the Windows drive, (without mucking up the MBR)03:15
sstchurinterlocutor, i'm just trying to install the dependencies (1st step)03:15
interlocutorOr, find a distro that isn't based off of Debians Ruby packages03:15
dhyesstchur, goto http://rubyforge.org/frs/?group_id=307 , theres lso standalone package of rails03:15
[THC]AcidRainescott, but its already listed. i know for a fact that the directory is not there. but i think this has somethign to do with grub not loading properly while my other drives are hooked up at boot03:16
interlocutorbtw sstchur, you might try #rubyonrails :)03:16
sstchurUnable to locate package lib1g03:16
[THC]AcidRainbecause its like the mount point is being created 2 times03:16
sstchurok, i will try that03:16
escottBash, if you have two drives yes, install grub to drive b and set b to be the boot disk03:16
Bashescott: Just so I'm 100% clear, IF I were to remove that drive in the future, would Win7 still be bootable as usual?03:17
HSPBash: I'm sure that would work but I've never installed Ubuntu in that particular configuration.  The Ubuntu installer probably won't auto-configure dual boot for you.  But, yes, you should be able to make the Ubuntu drive the default boot device (boot order) and configure Grub with an entry for the Windows drive.03:17
escottBash, yes if you don't overwrite the mbr of the windows disk then removing the ubuntu disk will leave you with an mbr that would load windows.03:17
[THC]AcidRainman wtf. i just want my system to boot when i tell it to03:17
interlocutorcan anyone comment on opensource ATI drivers vs FGLRX performance?03:17
DaVampsWinsoreau : after that edit.. i was able to reboot right to the ubuntu login..03:17
escottBash, but you may want to manually install grub to make sure that it doesnt touch the windows drive mbr03:18
hyperstream[THC]AcidRain, it boots when you press power button this isnt enough ?!03:18
[THC]AcidRainhyperstream, no it doesnt do that lol03:18
escottBash, or yank the windows drive, install ubuntu, the replug the windows disk and rerun grub-mkconfig03:18
[THC]AcidRain/dev/sdf1 is set to a boot disk. how to i remove this?03:19
escott[THC]AcidRain, the bootable flag usually doesn't matter, but you could remove it with fdisk03:19
Bashescott: I think that might be the safest bet, yeah. Thanks!03:19

HiDeHomay i ask if there is a version of ubuntu like 8.04 that works on old computers.03:25
[THC]AcidRainurlin2u, i think my grub problem is that both my external drives are set as a boot drive. and somehow its bypassing my bios and making it try to boot from them first, because when they are hooked up. it makes me chose which version of grub or w/e to try and boot with. and i select something and the logo screen font is all small and ugly looking. if i unplug both of them, it seems to boot up normal.03:25

subterfugeProblem = randomly not booting from USB and USB not showing up in BIOS -- Settings = Using 11.04, Installed /boot to a USB Drive, Installed everything else in encrypted volume(s)03:30
HiDeHosoreau: nope its common linux knowledge that new kernels in any linux os dont support old hardware.  a simple google serch will reveal that.03:30
soreausubterfuge: Sounds like a problem with your system and/or bios03:30
[THC]AcidRainwhoah your tripping me out. what boot command?03:30
HSPsubterfuge: maybe your USB drive is going bad.  You talking about a USB stick?03:30
soreauHiDeHo: That's simply not true03:31
SIFTUHiDeHo: lol03:31
arckanjoI hated the new CUPs "Common Unix Print Service"03:31
subterfugeHSP: Stick is new and seems to be ok on all other systems03:31
HiDeHosoreau: that is why os like puppylinux have versions with older kernels for older hardware.  runs better. support old graphicls cards better etc03:31
HiDeHowell its true in my experance .03:32
deadaimsoreau: hmm03:32
fluffyCan someone help guide me a bit on this bcm4311 issue?03:32
HSPHiDeHo: Older hardware might be even better supported.  I've run into ACPI issues on a very old Dell Inspiron 2400 but everything else worked from the start03:32
subterfugesoreau: that was my first thought however booting from live cd and then checking the drives performance then rebooting seemed to fix it03:32
makkafluffy: sorry if that wasn't much help.  I tried using the steps in forums, and it just didn't work.  So that's when I decided to start from scratch, and plug directly into my network03:32
deadaimsoreau: I think I need to do further investigation in how I installed rails on my laptop..03:32
HiDeHomy p4 will no longer run ubuntu. slowly each version after 8.04 got worse and worse.03:32
urlin2u[THC]AcidRain, first tab the nics second read the post.03:32
soreaudeadaim: Check your ubuntu version(s) with 'lsb_release -a'03:32
HiDeHoHSP: exactly very old computers have issues03:32
soreauHiDeHo: Ican run latest ubuntu on my P4 just fine03:33
SIFTUHiDeHo: thats probably because you are trying gnome with 512Mb of RAM03:33
HSPHiDeHo: In what way won't your p4 run Ubuntu?03:33
urlin2u[THC]AcidRain, sorry here is the link. http://bootinfoscript.sourceforge.net/03:33
xanguaHiDeHo: stop nonsence, my p4 runs lucid and up, we already told you to try Lubuntu if you hace few resources ;)03:33
deadaimsoreau: ok, thanks!03:33
fluffymakka, It's ok. I'm trying to work it out on my own, but I'm not that good at troubleshooting linux03:33
HiDeHowith ubuntu i have noticed that on my old computer it dont run as not enough ram, cpu, and other things.03:33
muktiI cannot get a power usage estimate with powertop. It shows "no ACPI power usage estimate available". Does anyone know what I can do to fix this?03:33
HiDeHomy nower laptop is ok03:33
arckanjoI hate the new CUPs "Common Unix Print Service"03:34
SIFTUHiDeHo: that has nothing to do with a kernel version03:34
HSPHiDeHo: Use Lubuntu or some other light weight Linux, or buy a new computer - simple.03:34
HiDeHoSIFTU: see issues 512 mb ram gnome clames to run in it.03:34
escottarckanjo, CUPS is something like 10 years old03:34
soreauHiDeHo: Sure, if you have a very small amount of ram ie. < 256, it could be a problem03:34
HiDeHoyet gnome in 8.04 flawless03:34
soreauHiDeHo: 512MB ram should work fine03:34
SIFTUHiDeHo: it will stuggle with 512Mb.. run lubuntu as suggested03:34
makkafluffy: Yeah I've only had issues with Broadcom wireless cards.03:35
HiDeHoi have tryed the lightweightversions of ubuntu none work liek 8.0403:35

soreaubsmith093: Does 'lspci -nn|grep Network' show 14e4:4315?03:39
escottmukti, that file is used by grub-mkconfig to make /boot/grub/grub.conf03:39

edbianbsmith093: hi03:40
soreauedbian: s/good/perfect ;)03:40
escottmukti, yes03:40
urlin2u[THC]AcidRain, So both externals are ext3 one is /media/Server2 the other is /media/Server the second is the one not mounting, both are in the fstab. So why if there external do you want them in fstab?03:40
bsmith093edbian: you sure you can, then have at it, because i really want the full capabilites of this card.03:40
escottmukti, but you dont want to edit that file as it is a generated file. make your customizations to /etc/grub.d03:41
edbianbsmith093: are you online?03:41
edbianbsmith093: What drivers have you tried?03:41
muktiescott: okay03:41
[THC]AcidRainurlin2u, well i was in here about 2 months ago and yall said to have them auto mount at boot and to put them in fstab was the only way to ensure that the mounted at the proper location...03:41
bsmith093wl, is eorking but i cant get monitoring mode to activate03:41
soreaumukti: Technically, you're not supposed to edit that file though. The recommended way is to edit /etc/default/grub and/or /etc/grub/* then run update-grub2 as root so it takes those options and builds a grub.conf file and installs it in /boot/grub/ for you03:41
sstchuranyone know how to auto disable the touchpad while typing on a Samsung QX410?03:42
edbianbsmith093: I'm not sure what monitoring mode is or if it works with b43 driver.  I suggest we try the b43 driver. Likely, if it doesn't work in wl or b43 there is little hope it will work at all.  I don't think there are any other linux drivers for this code.03:42
uns0b1ll_greetings free nation03:42
arckanjoguys, do you know, way when I using Putty from Windows, in Ubuntu has to much lag, but if I put my IP Adress, on /etc/hosts well it be verry fest03:42
muktisoreau: okay, thanks I'll edit that03:42

urlin2u[THC]AcidRain, so are these for p2p, a external will mount without fstab automatically with read and write if set up that way.03:42

[THC]AcidRainurlin2u, im not sure what you are saying? i have read and write... but it still doesnt mount where i tell it to03:43
edbianbsmith093: yep: sudo apt-get install b43-fwcutter and sudo apt-get install firmware-b43-installer03:43
sstchur(tap, drag, etc...)03:43
uns0b1ll_soreau, nvidia g280 i think03:43
edbianbsmith093: That installs the packages for the firmware (and an extractor for the firmware)03:43
soreauuns0b1ll_: How did you install the driver for it initially?03:43
HiDeHolubuntu well ok i might03:43
bsmith093firmware-b43-installer does not exist03:44
edbianbsmith093: Tell me if you get any errors.  A particular error (about lp-phy is likely)03:44
HiDeHoxubuntu xfce is nicer03:44
uns0b1ll_soreau, through snapmanger i think03:44
HiDeHowill tr again both then lol03:44

fluffyedbian, Done03:48
bsmith093now how do i get rid of or turn off wl03:48
edbianbsmith093: fluffy sudo modprobe b4303:49
urlin2u[THC]AcidRain, one is /media/Server2 the other /media/Server  if you removed I'm not sure what may be a problem. Since the /media/Server  is not mounting try opening the fstab and commenting it out and reboot ansd see if it mounts like a external will automatically, easier to get it to mount this way for a test.03:49
fluffyedbian, Done03:49
edbianbsmith093: you might want to sudo modprobe -r wl   and then sudo modprobe b43  but it isn't strictly necessary.03:49

fiberHi, recently I've been having the problem that every time I login to GDM I get a kernel panic.  This has only been happening for about 2 or 3 days now (until just 20min ago it was spuratic, now it happens all the time), so I blame it on an update.  Does anyone know about this issue or know any solutions?  As I said, I'm logged into tty1 so my research abilities are slightly diminished.03:52
[THC]AcidRainbut i know the problem is when the drive changes its name to something like /dev/sdb1 then fstab will mess up03:52
escott[THC]AcidRain, thats what the UUID is for. you should have the UUID listed in blkid instead of the device path03:52
arckanjoWow its raining a lot here! dear God!03:52
edbianfiber: my first thought / suggestion: use an older kernel (assuming you have one)03:52
[THC]AcidRainescott, right03:52
=== Nicolus is now known as c_nick
urlin2u[THC]AcidRain, So when you were advised to put them in fstab was it to have them do what just be available?03:53
fiberedbian: I'm currently using 2.6.38-11-generic... has this been updated recently? my grub boot menu only shows this one so i don't think it has changed recently03:53
edbianfiber: Not sure what you mean by 'updated recently'.  When the kernel is updated they increase the version number.  Ubuntu does not use the LATEST kernel but you are using the latest kernel ubuntu offers03:55
fluffyedbian, Now, how do I get this to start automatically?03:55
fiberedbian: also, my kern.log.1 shows a lot of "Short CCK"... is this shed any light on the issue?03:55
[THC]AcidRainurlin2u, right. well to be available because they wouldnt auto mount03:55
edbianfluffy: it will from now on03:55
urlin2u[THC]AcidRain, as it is the one not mounting isn't giving any info in the script, so it may need a fdsk or the uuid is wrong, could be a number of reasons.03:55
edbianfiber: I am researching that error.03:55
fluffyedbian, It didn't on this boot, let me get this figured out.03:55
fiberedbian: right... i'm currently just doing the stable branch of the standard ubuntu repositories. i don't think the kernel has been updated recently on this branch (i read the update logs and generally take note of kernel upgrades)03:56
edbianfluffy: or really?  pastebin the output of sudo lspci -k03:56
urlin2u[THC]AcidRain, strange a external should be available in computer or the home left panel, or on the desktop, if not in fstab.03:56
fluffythe STA driver was still installed.03:56
edbianfiber: if the kernel was updated you'd have an old version and an new version03:56
edbianfluffy: gotta remove that.  Do you know how?03:56
fluffyedbian, The STA driver was still installed. yep03:57
edbianfiber: that error is common and vague.  I don't think it has anything to do with the kernel panics.  Perhaps you can find some other error messages?03:57
[THC]AcidRainurlin2u, the issue seems to happen when i add the uuid into fstab03:58
urlin2u[THC]AcidRain, if you run sudo blkid does the uuid show for the one not mounting? If so check it is the same as the fstab on the script.03:58
[THC]AcidRainif i leave it as the /dev/sdf1 it works fine03:58
[THC]AcidRainurlin2u, it is. i already checked03:58
urlin2u[THC]AcidRain, set fast as the partitions like the Ubuntu partition.03:59
fiberedbian: no, I can't seem to find anything03:59
[THC]AcidRainurlin2u, hang on. rebooting03:59
edbianfiber: mmm, I'm not sure.  Kernel panics suck03:59
fiberedbian: i'm looking in /var/log/kern.log.1, anywhere else? i grep'd all of /var/log for "panic" but didn't find anything03:59
edbianfiber: /var/log/dmesg04:00
edbianfiber: but likely we won't see the error until the kernel panic has happened.  Obviously at that point you can't read the logs anymore04:00

soreaughfghf7: Did you check the md5sum of the image you downloaded?04:01
fiberedbian: there is an error that says "[drm] MTRR allocation failed. Graphics performance may suffer"... everything before that seems just peachy04:02
soreaughfghf7: Did you run the cd checker from the boot menu?04:02
fiberedbian: let me try restarting and using an older kernel04:02

soreaughfghf7: When the cd first loads, there is a little running man at the bottom and what looks like a battery meter. Press Esc there04:03

uns0b1ll_it says CRT screen, though i have LCD04:20

=== richard is now known as Guest54414
escottmasterosok, service dbus start i guess.... i'm not really sure what the install looks like04:22
soreauuns0b1ll_: Then you may have to add a modeline or so in xorg.conf04:22
soreauDaVamps-Ubuntu: No problem04:22
escottmasterosok, do you have an upstart init?04:22
uns0b1ll_soreau, i did reinstalled drivers and it worked after reboot04:22
DaVamps-Ubuntumust test a game to see if it helps the graphic lag at all04:22
uns0b1ll_soreau, so i dont know if its glitch or some bug04:22
soreauuns0b1ll_: So it's working now?04:23
masterosokescott, probably not, i just got an error regarding upstart when I did service dbus start04:23
uns0b1ll_soreau, no , its stoped working after reboot again i guess04:23
soreauuns0b1ll_: Proprietary drivers are problematic. There's no way around it04:23
Guest54414Why is it that Mint 11 installs, runs perfectly, while Ubuntu 11.04 won't install at all?04:23
uns0b1ll_soreau, maybe i should intall differnet one04:23
uns0b1ll_soreau, oh and theres no xorg.conf04:24
uns0b1ll_soreau, i cant find it04:24
urlin2umasterosok, to be honest not sure here, but from the link I posted " These steps will get you to a command-line version of Ubuntu Linux. From here you can use apt-get install to install Ubuntu packages. For instance, you can install icewm, Xfce or LXDE to give yourself a graphical user interface. Theoretically you could also use GNOME, KDE, or Unity but they require more system resources"  YOu might try a lighter desktop.04:24
fluffyHow do I disable the network manager?04:24
soreauuns0b1ll_: Oh really? not in /etc/X11/?04:24
soreauuns0b1ll_: If there's no xorg.conf, then it's not even loading the nvidia driver04:24
uns0b1ll_oh >_<04:25
uns0b1ll_found it04:25
soreaufluffy: sudo /etc/init.d/networking stop && killall nm-applet04:25
uns0b1ll_did find / -name "xorg.conf "04:25
uns0b1ll_and found nothing04:25
FloodBot1uns0b1ll_: Please don't flood; use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste; don't use Enter as punctuation.04:25
masterosokurlin2u, yeah I know gnome is possible cause I have see it running on one of these I just cant find any docs on how to get it working04:25
escottmasterosok, i think the intended use is to just start the individual applications you want04:25
fluffysoreau, will network manager start back up after a reboot?04:25
soreauuns0b1ll_: The only thing you can do with proprietary drivers when there's trouble is try reinstalling them or trying a different version of the driver04:25
soreaufluffy: Yes04:25
masterosokurlin2u, lxde worked fine but I didnt care for it04:25
uns0b1ll_soreau, my xorg.conf is so minimal - only section " device" in it04:25
dr_willishmm. i think ive seen the nvudua druver used when theres no xorg.conf04:26
DaVamps-Ubuntusoreau, is it possible that because that card doesnt have support pixel shader 2 that many games will not even run?04:26
urlin2umasterosok, sorry I can't help any more than that, good luck. :D04:26
uns0b1ll_i install different driver right now04:26
soreauuns0b1ll_: The only thing it needs to load the driver is 'Driver "nvidia"' in the Device section04:26
soreauuns0b1ll_: You can check /var/log/Xorg.0.log to see exactly what's happening04:26
masterosokurlin2u, thanks for your input though04:26
uns0b1ll_soreau, let me look04:26
uns0b1ll_soreau, what should i grep ?04:27
soreauuns0b1ll_: Depends on what you're looking for04:27
uns0b1ll_well i did grep nvidia04:27
Guest54414Anyone know what I can do here? I have a Power Mac G5. I need to put Linux on it. Will Ubuntu 11.10 offer support for the Powerpc? Will I be able to watch flash videos and play games?04:27
masterosokescott, when i tried service dbus start I got start: unable to connect to Upstart: Failed to connect to socket /com/ubuntu/upstart: connection refused04:27
soreauuns0b1ll_: I assume it's already loading the nvidia driver but there's no modeline for whatever resolution you want and it's defaulting to 1024x76804:28
escottmasterosok, so you will have to manually start dbus and resolve any other service dependencies04:28
uns0b1ll_do u want vnc session ?04:28
dr_willisppc limuc has no flash Guest5441404:28
soreauuns0b1ll_: But just try reinstalling the driver and/or installing a different version of the driver and see if it doesn't work itself out04:28
uns0b1ll_okay, let me know if u got time for join.me ?04:28
soreauuns0b1ll_: When using ubuntu's default method to install the nvidia driver, it edits xorg.conf for you04:29
dr_willisppc linux is rather limited in ways04:29
soreauuns0b1ll_: No, we don't do that here04:29

fiberHi everyone... I'm having an issue where I get a kernel panic every time I try logging into unity (http://imgur.com/txZ41).  This is only a problem with unity, I can log into ubuntu classic just fine.  This problem is new (~2 days) and until an hour ago only happened every once in a while.  Now I have a 0% chance of logging into unity.  Does anyone know about this issue?  Googling gives nothing!04:37
dr_willisdsnyders:  i can k9copy to iso backup a movie in about 20 min or less04:37
urlin2ughfghf7, resize the W7 with its disk partitioner, leaving a unallocated, making sure you don't have 4 primary partitions already, and the Ubuntu is in a extended partition using a logical.04:37
anonop05playing fullscreen video on youtube lags on ubuntu 11.0404:37
soreaufiber: It's most likely a graphics driver issue. Which are you using?04:38
ghfghf7okay thanks04:38
anonop05any solutions to that?04:38
dr_willisfiber:  try a unity --reset   yet?04:38
ghfghf7umm is there anyway ican boot windows without having to wait the 10 mins i taakes to boot a live cd agian?04:38
soreaudr_willis: masking the issue? :P04:38
ghfghf7i mean when i comeback into ubuntu04:39
fibersoreau, it is just the internal video card for the i5... although even in ubuntu classic opengl works just fine and it is using the same driver04:39
dr_willisfiber:  also make a new yser see uf it works for them04:39
urlin2ughfghf7, not really.04:39
fiberdr_willis, no I haven't.... what exactly does that reset?04:39
masterosokwhat does segmentation fault mean04:39
dr_willisfiber:  resets unity to defaults04:39
soreaudr_willis: A kernel panic can only really be caused by faulty kernel code, almost always from a kernel module. In this case the graphics driver is highly probable04:39
urlin2ughfghf7, use a thumb drive for the ubuntu it will boot faster.04:39
dr_willisfiber:  it may be a unuty or compiz setting issue04:40
fiberdr_willis, is there any way i can backup the config before trying this?04:40
soreaudr_willis: And since he's probably not been able to login to make changes, a reset probably wont help much04:40
fiberdr_willis, also, ubuntu classic uses compiz04:40
dr_willishe saud classic desktop wirks...04:40
soreaufiber: You can export compiz settings in ccsm>Preferences to save them04:41
dr_willismake a new user.. see if it works for them fiber04:41
soreaudr_willis: Yes but that only means that userspace code in unity session is using the faulty kernel code path04:41
dsnydersdr_willis, I'm using a WDTV Live Plus network media player box to send the file to my TV.  It won't read ISO files.  I need some sort of video file like AVI MPEG1/2/4 MKV or something.04:41
dr_willisif the new user works that points to a setting issue04:42
soreaudr_willis: Case in point, userspace code should never be able to trigger a kernel panic no matter what it does04:42
soreaudr_willis: If it can, then there's a problem with the driver04:42
dr_willisdsnyders:  my wd oplay can play isos ;)04:42
vaevis there a convenient way in ubuntu to disable my laptop touchpad when an external mouse is plugged in?04:42
fibersoreau, so... what do you think is going on then? because it seems to me that the graphics driver is working just fine04:43
urlin2ughfghf7, so you understand the HD limitations of primaries max=4, so you want only 3 and a extehded for the logicals.04:43
soreaufiber: First, what makes you think it's a kernel panic?04:43
urlin2uvaev, mine is fn-f704:44
soreauvaev: If you're able to disable it from CLI, then there's probably a way to detect the external mouse being plugged and disable the other04:44
dsnydersdr_willis, It will?  I'll have to give it a try04:44
fibersoreau, http://imgur.com/txZ41 (picture of my computer after... granted it doesn't say kernel oops so it may be some other sort of panic)04:45

SIFTUdsnyders: just use handbrake.. it will rip and transcode and it's multithreaded04:46
dr_willisi had issues with handbreak the ither day04:47
soreaufiber: I'm willing to bet it's a problem with the intel drm module04:47
dsnydersdr_willis, I have a few TB of space, and I'm only interested in a 10 DVD set at the moment.04:47
soreaufiber: Try a different kernel version if you can or get more specific support in #intel-gfx04:47
dr_willisdsnyders:  eack dvd - 4gb with k9 copy. then i rip the iso to video later04:48
fibersoreau, what would i do to use a different kernel version? just install the right  linux-image-* package?04:48
vaevsoreau: so essentially I'd make for example thru cron something that checks for the presence of a usb mouse and then removes rmmod psmouse with it04:49
soreaufiber: That's one way I guess.. but typically most kernels in a ubuntu distro are pretty much the same version..04:49
vaevand when the mouse is no longer detected it will do a modprobe psmouse04:49
soreauvaev: Ideally you'd want to detect a signal when it's plugged instead of polling with cron, but there's probably a few different ways to go about it04:50
soreauvaev: Maybe try asking in ##linux to get some ideas04:50
fibersoreau, ok, cool... i'm going to first try messing with avahi and then try downgrading the kernel04:50
fibersoreau, i'll be back in a bit to report what's going on04:51

soreaufiber: There's a way to do it but I don't know right off hand04:57

urlin2uBash, the sda mbr is where the grub bootloader went, it should be in the sdc HD mbr. YOIu can reload the windows bootloader to the sda with a windows recovery disc booted to the repaier terminal, and run bootrec.exe /fixmbr08:01

Bashurlin2u: Keep in mind that I have a seperate windows partition at the start of that partition table, does it matter?08:03
varikonniemiubuntu is unity08:03
varikonniemiso yes, unity08:03
urlin2ubash I posted a link to reloading grub from the natty cd, it defaults to it a rather easy job.08:03
rumpelvarikonniemi, not necessarily08:03
Guestubuntu is a distro08:03
varikonniemino but if i made a mod that big i would mention it08:03
Guestunity is not a distro so ubuntu is not unity08:04
varikonniemiby default it is08:04
Guestyou mean Ubuntu 11.04 uses Unity by default08:04
vibhavguest unity is a desktop environment for Ubuntulog08:04
Guestyou can change that08:04
asdjaputraGuest yes you can08:04
rumpelvarikonniemi, i guess you can write a script, which toggles certain shortcuts via gconf.08:04
Bashurlin2u: Just to be clear, it doesn't matter that I have a windows disk (non-boot) at the beginning of the partition table?08:05
urlin2uBash, ypu can boot the ubuntu cd and run sudo fdisk -l and pastebin the out put and I will give you the commands to run.08:05

vibhavGuest you can install other environments like LXDE or KDE08:05
varikonniemisame territory as "compile it yourself"08:05
vibhavvarikonniemi your use of words impress me08:06
rumpelvarikonniemi, or you can look for the shortcut-settings in unity and deactivate the "alt-tab" shortcut (if you otherwise don't need it)08:06
Bashurlin2u: http://pastebin.com/ZesnDdyx08:06

lightahey guys, quick question is ther a way to scrool up with screen -x option ?08:20
tenXasdjaputra: he wants to alt+tab from within a game (whatever game on linux) to the next desktop app. told him the game will catch keystrokes like that for good reasons and i'm also pretty sure that doesnt work on windoze. the win key brings you back08:22
varikonniemii never use the win key, i alt-tab out of games08:23
VxQetenX, it does work in windows08:23

ubottu#ubuntu is the Ubuntu support channel, for all Ubuntu-related support questions. Please use #ubuntu-offtopic for other topics (though our !guidelines apply there too). Thanks!08:29
VxQeIn anycase, the problem is that ubuntu defers the keystrokes to the fullscreen app08:29
VxQeand doesn't capture the alt-tab08:30
tenXVxQe: see what i mean08:30
VxQeWhich is what it's meant to do08:30

varikonniemiand there are some program suggestions08:30
varikonniemisome config magic08:30
varikonniemiwill try that08:31
VxQeYou could also try using a high-level hotkey08:31
VxQeLike hitting ctrl-alt-del and the just cancel out of the menu.08:31
VxQeDon't know if that would work that.08:31
VxQeCertainly not well08:31
asdjaputraVxQe, in certain game engines, alt-tab will be ignored08:31

bahamashello. if i plug my network cable in, shouldn't the network be configured automatically?08:51
asdjaputratp43, ok, then you can skip that step08:51
commxthat's the problem. I need to get the disk model, which sadly isn't available in both of them08:51
asdjaputratp43, and just do sudo chmod 755 /var/www/08:51
tuxlinginxauronandace: ok, u a bit annoying aren't ya, anyway, i need an rpm based alien for armel platform08:52
ActionParsnipbahamas: should do yes (assuming the chip has a driver). If not you can double check with:  sudo dhclient3 eth008:52
scarleobahamas, yes it should, maybe a reboot with cable plugged if it doesn't work08:52
asdjaputratp43, and from there, you can chmod 755 to every folder within and chmod 644 for every HTML files08:52
snufftcan anyone tell me if it's possible for me to remote into my dad's email computer over the net? i'm on ubuntu and he's on win708:53

auronandace!arm | tuxlinginx08:55
ubottutuxlinginx: ARM is a specific (RISC) processor architecture used in a variety of applications such as handhelds and networkdevices. For more information see https://wiki.ubuntu.com/ARM . For ARM specific support, stop by the #ubuntu-arm channel.08:55
tenXsinistrad: hmm dunno inadyn. it probably compares. but ddclient output for high frequency updates asks you to be polite. and dyndns is a great service so i respect it08:55

bahamasActionParsnip: ok, i'll do that08:56
tuxlinginxauronandace: i found alien for armel but it's a deb, i need an RPM version08:57
scarleobahamas, if it doesn't connect, try 'sudo service network-manager restart'08:57
auronandacetuxlinginx: why?08:57
ActionParsnipbahamas: uninstall network manager and reboot to get it all started up08:57
devcalaisHey team. I need a hand, I'd really like a 'widget' on my desktop that tells me my local weather forecast daily - any ideas?08:57
sinistradtenX, I agree. It's a great service. Mine just checks IP, and if it differs, then updates with dyndns. It doesn't hammer dyndns. I wasn't having a problem, I was just letting someone else know that it can update faster.08:57
auronandacetuxlinginx: ubuntu uses deb not rpm08:57
bahamasscarleo: ok. i'll write this down08:57
tuxlinginxauronandace: to dive after osama, isn't it obvious08:57

tp43asdjaputra, Is there anyway around this, so I don't have to do all this chmod in the future?09:02
asdjaputratp43, unfortunately, no09:03
bahamasActionParsnip: ah, so wicd is a replacement for network-manager09:03
asdjaputratp43, you have to configure it to match the files and folders09:03
tp43asdjaputra, everytime I copy a website over to /var/www I have do a bunch on chmods?09:03
asdjaputratp43, no you won't have to09:03
tp43asdjaputra, what do you mean?09:04
ActionParsnipbahamas: its an alternative09:04
asdjaputratp43, you won't have to chmod it09:04
ActionParsnipbahamas: there is also wifi-radar09:04
asdjaputratp43, by default every files/folders uses 644/755, i think09:04
tp43asdjaputra, like when I copy a website to /var/www from Document folder or anywhere else, I have to do a bunch of chmods right09:05
tp43asdjaputra, like I just had to do09:05
asdjaputratp43, wait a sec09:05
asdjaputratp43, every new file and folder will have 644/755, my theory was correct09:06
asdjaputratp43, you'll only need to copy it to /var/www with sudo09:06
bahamasActionParsnip: ok, i'll look into that as well. thanks09:07
tp43asdjaputra, oh, I should change /var/www to chmod 755 and then every new file will have it correct09:07
tp43asdjaputra, but I have one site that didn't require any chmods for some reason09:07
asdjaputratp43, hmm..09:07
tp43asdjaputra, oooh, you know what, when I create directory inside /var/www then I have to make it chmod 75509:07
asdjaputratp43, yes and by default it is09:08
asdjaputratp43, http://www.dartmouth.edu/~rc/help/faq/permissions.html09:08
tp43asdjaputra, cause the first site I put in /var/www, and then when I added more sites, I made directories and those needed to have chmod done09:08
asdjaputratp43, yes09:09
tp43asdjaputra, the first site was fine by default cause they were created inside the root directory which made them correct chmod setting by default09:09
tp43asdjaputra, ok, thanks so much for your help09:09
asdjaputratp43, and made them belong to www-data by default09:09
asdjaputratp43, may i add you can sudo chown user:group to /var/www09:09
asdjaputraso every file you add by default won't need chmod and won't need sudo to edit09:09
asdjaputrayou need chmod because it's not www-data's09:10
asdjaputraso placing it there will be useless if www-data has no permission to it09:10
asdjaputrayou can add a user special for adding datas to /var/www, under your password09:10
tp43asdjaputra, can you show my the command to chown user:group to /var/www09:11
asdjaputratp43, http://www.alexatnet.com/content/debian-web-server-apache-php-and-mysql09:12
asdjaputratp43, there's a complete server files/folders chmod rules, and how to isolate a user to a specific website09:12
hyperstreamtp43, chown -hR user:group /var/www <-- will apply to everything inside it and the subfolders (recursive)09:12
asdjaputratp43, also there is how to make vhosts09:13
tp43asdjaputra, thanks, is that you in the picture by chance or just a link?09:13

ActionParsnipexecutionist: use TAB to complete the file names, make sure CASE is exact, linux is VERY case sensitive. So if it is Program\ Files   it is different to program\ files10:25
executionistk, lemme try that10:25
RedViperActionParsnip: No, there are no bugs, it wont work, nomatter what I do. Is there something in system I can do?10:25
ActionParsnipexecutionist: could use:  cd /media; ls   and go from there10:25
jigalhello when i do ~$ sudo ssh -T git@github.com10:25
jigali get a popup for a password but dont know which password to add10:25
jigalany idea's?10:25
ikoniajigal: shy are you using sudo to ssh ?10:26
Dazzledklingelbart, I know what you mean, my script runs after I log in10:26
Dazzledit even waits until there's an internet connection10:26
ActionParsnipRedViper: make sure it is enabled. could reboot and run:  dmesg | less    see if its detected. Ggabyte may have some proprietary garbage which needs a driver to work and get access to the cam10:26
klingelbartDazzled, hmmmm10:26
Dazzledklingelbart, Startup Applications10:27
jigalikonia, without the sudo i get the same popup10:27
LanglyHello unknown sample10:27
ikoniajigal: yes, that's correct, without sudo it's the password for the user "git" at the remote server10:27
ikoniajigal: there is no reason so use "sudo" to run the ssh command10:27
RedViperActionParsnip: Why do I need to reboot? I can't really do that now. Can't I just run dmesg ?10:27
DazzledI googled the translation, so I guess that could be it10:28
klingelbartDazzled. ok got it. it's called litte different, cause i have got the german version10:28
Dazzled:) Lost in translation10:28

bambanxguys how can i do a image of my system of all my system ?10:28
prc33any reason why a standard 10.04.3 server install would fail to get an IP via DHCP? (networking works if I give a static IP with ipconfig))10:28
klingelbartdazzled, no click on "add?"10:28
Dazzledadd, and then browse to your .sh file10:29
sdk__Jigal its the password you used to encrypt your SSH private key. Must have encrypted at some point in the past :)10:29
ActionParsnipshai28: try changing server to the main server, or an alternate server10:29
DazzledName and Comment you can choose whatever, the Path should point to your sh file10:30
klingelbartDazzled, ok, got it. now ill test it...10:30
ActionParsnipRedViper: sure, reboot just reduces the messages. Just read down until about no ipv6 available. Do you see anything mentioning the webcam?10:30
ActionParsnipbambanx: dd or partimage are 2 options10:30
duk0vvhi everyone, i recently bought an usb pendrive that i suspect being fake,  i see that on windows there are some utilities that let you (at least) sort it out, is there any of those on Linux? (possibly off repo but it's not a problem if not)10:31
sdk__!tell sdk_ about metapackage10:31
ActionParsnipduk0vv: what do the utilities do?10:31
RedViperActionParsnip: No, should I paste it? Maybe I'm missing it.10:32
ssk_the_gr8how do i find out speed of my ram?10:32
duk0vvActionParsnip: apparently (this is just a guess ) they fill the usb key with data and then see if it gets corrupt, as the output says "XX GB are available XX are junk"10:32
Sidewinder1I don't think ubottu is "on board", this morning...10:33

ssk_the_gr8somebody please help me ? :(10:34

jigalsdk__, i generated a new key and now i get permission denied10:37
ActionParsnipRedViper: do gigabyte make linux drvers for the webcam?10:37
RedViperActionParsnip: The thing is it's not showing up. The other thing is how do you know it's a bug, for all we know it might be me. :D10:37
ActionParsnipdiverdude: what is your question?10:38
ActionParsnipRedViper: if its not in dmesg then its not pickuing up. Its also not showing in lsusb10:38
ssk_the_gr8Dazzled: yes10:38
ssk_the_gr8dont get the ram speed10:38

Dazzledssk_the_gr8, "cat /proc/meminfo"10:44
duk0vvActionParsnip: just sudo fdisk -l ? it gave me no output10:45
Dazzledssk_the_gr8, nm, doesn't list clock10:45
trmbon1can anybody help me my window frames have disappeared and i cant figure out how to get them back10:45
ActionParsnipduk0vv: the -l is a lowercase -L10:45
RedViperActionParsnip: So you don't have any other suggestions?10:46
duk0vvActionParsnip: yup, i wrote L10:46
ssk_the_gr8Dazzled: so many values... all in KB....10:46
oCeanssk_the_gr8: in sudo lshw -C memory, there's also the clock specification10:46
ActionParsnipRedViper: none, other than report a bug10:46
ssk_the_gr8oCean: it's not there.. do u want me to paste the output?10:46
oCeanssk_the_gr8: no need, I have it's output from many systems.10:47
Dazzledssk_the_gr8, sudo dmidecode --type 1710:47
Dazzledthis lists speed10:47
RedViperActionParsnip: Ok thanks allot for the help. I will get onto reporting a bug. Thanks again :D10:47
oCeanssk_the_gr8: for example: http://paste.ubuntu.com/685871/10:47
duk0vvActionParsnip: also, isn't it supposed to give me the same info disk utility (gui) would?10:48
ssk_the_gr8oCean: http://paste.ubuntu.com/685872/10:48
ssk_the_gr8here you go check it out10:48
ActionParsnipduk0vv: did you get an output this time?10:48
oCeanssk_the_gr8: did you run it sudo?10:48
oCeanssk_the_gr8: never seen this before10:49
ssk_the_gr8i  ran sudo su at the start10:49
duk0vvActionParsnip: actually, i forgot sudo the L was written correctly i thought i had admin already, my bad10:49
oCeanssk_the_gr8: never do that, to start a root shell (if you ever need one) do  sudo -i10:49
=== Guest99043 is now known as LjL-Temp
ssk_the_gr8Dazzled: dmidecode .... does not work too says Speed unknown10:49
duk0vvActionParsnip: but isn't this same output diskutility would give me?10:49
ssk_the_gr8oCean: reasons?10:49
MonkeyDusti never dare to advise sudo -i10:50
ActionParsnipduk0vv: i guess, gparted should also show you10:50
=== LjL-Temp is now known as Guest55856
duk0vvActionParsnip: the problem is that if it's fake it's probably using some patched firmware that shows it's a X (the amount you paid) GB stick, if you put more data into it it gets corrupt10:50
duk0vvActionParsnip: besides any program or stuff like that, wouldnt putting files into the stick and then comparing checksums do the trick?10:51
ActionParsnipduk0vv: could format it in gparted if there is noting on there you need10:51
duk0vvActionParsnip: no nothing i need, I'll format and report back, does it have to be gparted or diskutility is going to be fine? (don't want to sound lazy but i dont have gparted installed on this machine)10:52
ambro718Which Ubuntu versions use Upstart? Does the current development version (oneiric) use Upstart or Systemd (or is there a compatibility layer - can I ship Upstart scripts in oneiric)?10:52
ActionParsnipduk0vv: whatever can delete the partition and then make a new one. If you are going to share between windows and linux, use ntfs, otherwise use ext2 :)10:53
Stanley00ambro718: I dont know, but natty use upstart, I think10:53
ssk_the_gr8Dazzled: what now?10:53
ssk_the_gr8oCean: any other suggestions?10:53
nlkohow can i tell what distro version is from the console?10:53
rigvednlko: lsb_release -sc10:54
nlkoah, lucid, thats not the latest is it?10:54
Dazzledssk_the_gr8, that's really odd, are you sure you're in sudo mode when executing said command?10:54
ssk_the_gr8a # appears when you're in sudo mode, right?10:55
ssk_the_gr8nlko: but it's the most stable, i'm using it10:55
rigvednlko: that's the latest LTS. if you want the latest, then that is natty (11.04). oneiric (11.10) will release on oct 13.10:55
Dazzledssk_the_gr8, close all terminals, open a new one, and enter "sudo dmidecode --type 17"10:55
Dazzledit'll prompt for a password10:55
rigvednlko: lucid is stable, as ssk_the_gr8 pointed out.10:56
nlkoah ok, so no rush in moving from lucid then?10:56
duk0vvActionParsnip: ok done, it states its a 7,5 gb usb key (its sold as 8 GB but i guess that it may be legit if it was 7,5 rounded to 8 because of the decimal?) but according to some (non reliable sources) patched firmwares may spoof such results, would copying stuff into the pendrive , copying back and checking its checksum defeat any of my paranoias?10:56
ActionParsnipduk0vv: that's about right10:56
ssk_the_gr8dmidecode: unrecognized option '--type17'10:56
nlkoi just noticed 11.04 was out and wondered why apt-get upgrade didnt get it10:57
ActionParsnipduk0vv: probably due to decimal/binary stuff. I wouldn't sweat it10:57
ssk_the_gr8Dazzled: http://paste.ubuntu.com/685879/10:58
ssk_the_gr8output, check it out10:58
duk0vvActionParsnip: thank you very much for all your answers, i appreciate, AT LEAST i can sleep tight tonight (the main concern was permanently infected usb to be honest, not smaller sized lol)10:58
ActionParsnipduk0vv: oh absolutely :)10:59
duk0vvActionParsnip: what absolutely? :P11:00
Dazzledssk_the_gr8, no idea then, guess your system can't read it, or perhaps it's damaged11:00
ssk_the_gr8Dazzled: is it damaged?11:00
ssk_the_gr8i got it from my friend11:00
Dazzledyou could try swapping it into another socket or machine11:00

Dazzledssk_the_gr8, what brand is it?11:01
petriborgI've got a dell poweredge 1950 server w/ raid 1 (via perc controller) and after install of 10.04r3, it never boots properly. The error it gives me is "Gave up waiting for root device." "ALERT! /dev/mapper/myboxname-root does not exist." there are lots of threads on this issue, but not a lot of clear solutions - does anyone have any ideas?11:01
Dazzledssk_the_gr8, normally it's printed on the RAM11:02
duk0vvActionParsnip: it's unlikely, but possible, and although it would be a minor concern on linux those usb keys may be used on Windows Pc's and I'd like to be a good  neighbour (not my windows pc's as i dont have any)11:02

DazzledI haven't been shopping around, as I'm wary of breaking my stuff :)11:14
DazzledI have a tendency to get my Linux broken whenever I set out to change a simple thing11:15

executionist_is it possible to run an application with wine if it is not installed using wine but sitting in your windows program files?11:18
DazzledI managed to have to switch graphics drivers after I switched my HDD to a new laptop11:18
Dazzledall glory to netroot11:18
nnullDazzled, puts a different perspective on it doesnt it hehe11:18
Sidewinder1executionist_, I don't think so, but I don't usually use wine.11:18
ssk_the_gr8do i need to check if my cpu has vt?11:19
Dazzledwell yeah, I'm not afraid to jump in :p although landing is still off most of the time :p11:19
ActionParsnipnnull: its the same method i used to learn linux. many breaks and many reinstalls11:19
Dazzledis there something like RainMeter for Ubuntu desktops?11:19
ActionParsnipssk_the_gr8: if you want a 64bit guest, then yes. most times a 32bit guest is fine11:19
Dazzledand not with the gadgets and all that, or cacaphonic combinations of screaming colors11:19
th0rDazzled: gkrellm ?11:20
ActionParsnipDazzled: what does rainmeter do?11:20
executionist_ActionParsnip, how long is the learning curve for linux?11:20
nnullActionParsnip, Indeed, im not disagreeing with it.11:20
Dazzledrainmeter is a Windows customisation tool11:20
ActionParsnipexecutionist_: its never ending, just like any OS11:20
ssk_the_gr8if i install windows xp in virtual box will cpuz be able to detect my ram?11:20
ActionParsnipDazzled: you can customize linux to the hills11:20
tp43How can I test if my system has a working mail system that will be able to run a form-to-mail script php page11:20
executionist_ActionParsnip, but by when do you think I will stop coming to irc for every little thing11:20
ActionParsnipssk_the_gr8: it will use as much ram as you assign in the vm settings11:21
ActionParsnipexecutionist_: depends on teh11:21
ssk_the_gr8ActionParsnip: will it detect the ram clock speed etc?11:21
ActionParsnipthe individual, a few months should be fine. make sure you use the web before asking in here and you will earn11:21
jribRedViper: why do you keep repeating your question and ignoring replies?11:22
ActionParsnipssk_the_gr8: should pickup whatever the host tells it, using windows tools to test ram in any way is a poor test11:22
ssk_the_gr8ActionParsnip: linux tools are not working that is why i'm looking at this solution11:22
ActionParsnipssk_the_gr8: if you want to see your ram speed then run memtest from grub11:23
flipcoderhey guys how do you deal with a "sector read error" when trying to install11:23
Sidewinder1executionist_, Please read and search: http://ubuntuforums.org/   That's how I learned.11:23
ActionParsnipflipcoder: i'd grab the ultimate boot cd and check the drive with manufacturers tool11:24
ssk_the_gr8ActionParsnip: memtest , how long does it take?11:24
ActionParsnipssk_the_gr8: how much ram do you have?11:24
Sidewinder1executionist_, Another great link, if you're just getting started is: http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/index.php11:24

executionist_will check them, not great with reading though11:25
AFDI'm having trouble connecting a VPN client to the VPN server. The server is working ok for other clients. Can someone help me troubleshoot11:25
ssk_the_gr8ActionParsnip: 2gb11:25
ActionParsnipssk_the_gr8: not too long then11:26
Dazzledmemtest can be interupted I believe, but it won't give you much information then, it does some different "marches" to test its sectors11:26
ssk_the_gr8ActionParsnip: still an approximate time ?11:27
ssk_the_gr8i've heard it takes hours11:27
Dazzleddepends on what you need, if you want to be sure it's free of faults, it will have to test all of it11:28
Dazzledif you only need the speed11:28
Dazzledperhaps it'll be visible immedeatly11:28
Sidewinder1ssk_the_gr8, I don't think memtest stops, until you stop it; an hour or two should be enough to discover any problems.11:28
ActionParsnipssk_the_gr8: i don't know. there may be estimates online. You can stop it part way but it will give the latencies of the ram etc11:28

DazzledActionParsnip, Ah I see11:30
DazzledI remember it containing all of those things though :p11:30
Dazzledbut it's not what he asked :)11:31
ActionParsnipexecutionist_: wireshark was on Linux first11:31

crshbndct2 questions: how do i check my fps in a wine game in ubuntu?11:31
Dazzledwireshark on linux, it just works11:31
executionist_i see, didnt know that. I thought it was a windows software11:32
ActionParsnipcrshbndct: is there an option in winecfg11:32
crshbndctand how should i partition my drive, now that i have decided to boot windows out of the picture altogether11:32
ActionParsnipexecutionist_: it is, it was simply ported11:32
crshbndctActionParsnip, thanks.. i will have a look for that11:32
ActionParsnipcrshbndct: if not then see if your app has a switch to show fps11:33
ActionParsnipcrshbndct: or ask in #winehq11:33
EidelDoes anyone know how to include mounted network locations in save dialogs? https://launchpadlibrarian.net/60061325/2010-12-03-193539_1360x768_scrot.png11:34
Eidelwithout using stuff like sshfs11:34
Sidewinder1crshbndct, Do you want to dual boot or delete windows altogether?11:34
ActionParsnipEidel: I always run:  ln -s ~/.gvfs ~/Mounts11:35
ActionParsnipEidel: then drag ~/Mounts in nautilus to the left panel11:35
crshbndctdelete windows altogether. i finally got fallout 3 working perfect in ubuntu, and that was the only reason i still had windows11:35
EidelActionParsnip: Cool. Will try!11:36
executionist_apps from the ubuntu software center always slow to download?11:36
Sidewinder1crshbndct, ext4 would be the normal filesystem; also ext3, but it's older.11:36
EidelActionParsnip: Yay. Thanks alot11:36
doubiGreetings all. I know how to set the Title of an individual tab in gnome-terminal, so that when that tab is selected the Window takes on that title. It would be nice not to have to name each of my tabs though. Is there a way to set the name of a gnome-terminal Window, irrespective of the names of the terminal tabs?11:37
ActionParsnipexecutionist_: try a different server. May help. I always use apt-fast in cli. I find software-centre too slow11:37
crshbndcti was more wondering which partition sizes i should go for.. its a 500gb drive11:37
crshbndctand i was thinking /-64gb /home-the rest of the drive.11:37
crshbndctbut then i read that you should have a /var partition too11:38
executionist_could take a while to find the optimal server. the default is too slow11:38
th0rcrshbndct: you probably won't need more than 20GB for / ... if you have more than 2GB ram and don't intend to suspend to disk you can skip swap11:38
executionist_btw I didnt see there were multiple servers :D11:39
Sidewinder1crshbndct, Never heard of a separate /var.11:39
ActionParsnipexecutionist_: worth it in the long run11:39
crshbndcti have 8gb ram and i dont have swap atm11:40
th0rcrshbndct: I would set 20GB for / and put the rest in /home. I set aside 20GB and am only using about half that.11:41
zykotick9crshbndct, i wouldn't both trying to separate /var or /usr (unless you're installing a server), more trouble then it is worth on a desktop.  I also wouldn't recommend you forgo swap entirely, just create a small one.11:41
zykotick9s/forgo/NOT forgo/11:42
crshbndctyeah i currently have the LAST 4gb of my drive as swap. it never gets used except when VLC has a brainfart11:42
executionist_you can set aside space for /home too?11:42
suman_hey hi when ever i connect my iphone to the computer it says unable to mount iphone..  unhandled lockdown error (-4)11:43
suman_any help11:43
Sidewinder1executionist_, Yes.11:43
crshbndcti will probably have a 40gb for /, as flightgear with the entire world worth of landscape files is 18gb, and it install into /bin/share/blah/blah11:43
ActionParsnipexecutionist_: sure, a seperate /home partition makes backup easier and reinstalling easy too, you just tell the installer to not format the partition and mount it as /home and your settings will stand11:43
ActionParsnipcrshbndct: woah, thats a lot11:44
executionist_right now I put some 300 for / and 10 for swap11:44
suman_can i get some help please11:44
th0rcrshbndct: I have flightgear installed, but not the world <smile>. with 500GB you can afford to be generous11:44
executionist_is that the wrong way?11:44

executionist_squig,  make and model? why would it turn off?11:47
ActionParsnipDazzled: of vlc, that is11:47

DazzledActionParsnip, 1.1.9 The Luggage11:54
ActionParsnipsquig: then it will use that package, there is a flash 11 rc if you want from omgubuntu just remove the flashplugin-nonfree and flashplugin-installer package and copy the .so to /usr/lib/chromium-browser/plugin   There may be a deb too11:54
ActionParsnipDazzled: and the output of: lsb_release -sc11:55

bjarniYes ActionParsnip.  That's among the reasons I was asking this morning about how to upgrade to the latest version.  I have 9.10, 64 bit.   There are instructions on the ubuntu site that i'll have to upgrade incrementally.  Is that the way to go - and can I upgrade to 32 bit?12:00

Sidewinder1bjarni, You should back-up yout /home.12:07
ActionParsnipcricket42: split archives can be used by many compression tools, the commands they give will handle it. you don't have a different rar manager in windows for split rar files do you? It's the same app12:07
Sidewinder1your, even.12:07
bjarniok.  Just one more question.  Is the 32 or 64 bit better?12:07

ubottulebear: alis is a services bot that can help you find channels. Read "/msg alis help list" for help and ask any questions about it in #freenode. Example usage: /msg alis list #ubuntu*12:19
iceroot!alis | lebear12:19

squigis xfce in 10.04 ?12:36
icerootsquig: yes12:36
icerootsquig: called "xubuntu-desktop"12:36
jribKartagis: once you read that page to understand the issue, if you're not sure what to do, googling "useradd perl crypt" will give you plenty of example usages12:36
jribKartagis: of course now the real question is why are you doing this?  That is why aren't you just entering the password later instead of putting the password in plaintext in your shell's history?12:37

You can then make a script or alias which you can then use in command line to change the entry.

Ristovskiedbian: is there spmething I can do?15:08
edbianRistovski: Sometimes the BIOS will list the removable hdd with the other harddrives.  I suggest you hunt around your bios some more.  If you boot a liveCD I know a command we can run that will prove that grub is installed.15:08
alkafooTriorieel: your last install from the same minimal image?15:08
nicofsRistovski, edbian the external hdd might not have the boot bit - or however it's called...15:08
Ristovskiedbian: I cant boot even boot from USB stick so its a bios problem15:08
edbiannicofs: What is a 'boot bit' ?15:08
Teh_LemonActionParsnip: im new on ubuntu. i used it before but never gave it a big try15:09
Teh_Lemonwill wine work15:09
nicofsedbian, or does that only apply to usb keys...?15:09
karmstyou probably don't have an MBR created15:09
Ristovskiedbian: Its a bios problem else I could boot my USB stick15:09
edbianRistovski: agreed.  Look in more detail at your bios.  Go into every menu and setting.15:09
Teh_Lemonor it shows to target i am using linux after all15:09
WhatTheQtid10t: thanks15:09
edbiannicofs: I don't even know what the 'boot bit' is!15:09
Triorieelalkafoo, No, that was a proper install from ubuntu versions ago that has been kept upto date15:09
Ristovskiedbian: I was , I tried everything , and still i cant find my HDD in it15:09
watermarkI'm doing a reinstall of 10.04.3 server and it's being at "cleaning up" for a while now with a lot of disk activity. Does it do a fsck at this stage or something else?15:09
rumpe1nicofs, linux doesn't care about the boot-flag15:09
karmstedbian: he's talking about the MBR15:09
semitones_teaIdleOne: can i pm real quick?15:09
edbiankarmst: The 'boot bit' is the MBR?  That does not make sense15:10
nicofsrumpe1, linux can't care if it doesn't boot in the firs place...15:10
karmstthere is no such thing as a boot bit15:10
alkafooTriorieel: and it was having the same problem as you're having now from a fresh install?15:10
Ristovskiedbian: I feel so badly...15:10
ActionParsnipTeh_Lemon: could try it15:10
rumpe1nicofs, it doesn't care ever15:10
IdleOnesemitones_tea: anytime15:10
[THC]AcidRainman same issue as last night. if i dont use the uuid in fstab, then my external drives are mounted as Server2_ Server_ instead of Server and Server215:11
Triorieelalkafoo, correct...although I took it further on the last install and used drivers from the nvidia site then tried going back to the distribution drivers and that created a huge mess I felt like starting from scratch with15:11
edbianRistovski: sorry to hear that15:11
Teh_Lemonthanks ActionParsnip. if it works, you get a cookie :D15:11
Ristovskiedbian: thanks...15:11
karmstyes the MBR is what tells your drive what sector your grub is in15:11
karmstor whatever boot manager you are using15:11
Ristovskiedbian: i wish there was some way to boot from it , I really love Ubuntu 10.04 but Im forced to use Windows15:12
karmstwhy can't you?15:12
[THC]AcidRainbut if i DO use uuid,then they are mounted what appears to be 2 times. at Server Server and Server2 server215:12
Ristovskiedbian: since I cant boot from External HDD15:12
[THC]AcidRainis there any sure way around this issue?15:12
karmstjust write GRUB from scratch?15:12
Ristovskikarmst: read up15:12
ActionParsnipRistovski: Ubuntu isn't always the solution15:12
edbianRistovski: There is.  Mess with the bios settings.  Try removing the internal hdd (physically disconnect it)15:12
Ristovskiedbian: laptop...15:12
karmstdon't do all that15:12
edbianRistovski: You can still remove the hdd.  (sometimes it's hard)15:13
karmstedit fstab to mount your OS partition15:13
id10tanyone familiar wtih using apt-mirror to create a local ubuntu mirror?  I'm wondering about symlinking to apache and having different ubuntu sources listed ... archive.canocial (for partnet) vs archive.ubuntu (for main, multiverse, etc).  how do i deal with that?15:13
Ristovskiedbian: nah i dont wanna do that...15:13
edbianRistovski: ok15:13
karmstthen edit grub to use that as the boot15:13
karmstpretty easy15:13
A_Jcan tell me any sound cards which work well with ubuntu15:13
edbiankarmst: he needs to edit the bios, not grub15:13

karmstyou can have it mount a NFS share and boot from it if you would want to15:14
edbiankarmst: I _strongly_ disagree.  He needs to tell the BIOS to boot his external hdd15:14
Ristovskiedbian: is there something I can do? (Sorry for bothering you but I feel like shattered - im trying to boot ubuntu from USB stick and now HDD for 2 weeks)15:15
icerootwatermark: you must update to 9.10 and then 10.04 (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/EOLUpgrades)15:15
[THC]AcidRainok. if i use fstab and enter them by uuid, my comp 1. tries to boot from them, if i remove them and boot my comp, then it appears to mount them 2 times. at Server Server and Server2 Server2. if i enter them into fstab by /dev/sdf1 then it does NOT try to boot from them. and it mounts them at Server_ Server2_ and it leaves Server and Server2 as an option15:15
[THC]AcidRainkarmst, ^15:15
edbianRistovski: You need to understand your bios.  This is not something I can help with.15:15

Yvonne1ow it is eol, but cant choose one anyway15:16
edbiankarmst: What are you talking about?  Ristovski installed ubuntu on his external.  When he boots he gets windows (installed on an internal).  He needs to edit his bios.15:16
karmstAcidRain: is it a raid array?15:16
edbianRistovski: yes15:16
Jackneillwhats better, emesene or amsn?15:16

mang0What's the differance between $: sudo apt-get remove PROGRAM and $: sudo apt-get autoremove PROGRAM15:38
icerootmang0: remove == remove a package, autoremove = remove all packages which are no longer needed15:38
mang0iceroot: So if you did autoremove then you don't need to put in a program name?15:38
icerootmang0: e.g. you install program a which is pulluing program b, then you remove program a and b is still installed but because it is installed only because of a autoremove will remove it15:39

ubottu[THC]AcidRain: The /etc/fstab file indicates how drive partitions are to be used or otherwise integrated into the file system. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Fstab and http://www.tuxfiles.org/linuxhelp/fstab.html and !Partitions16:14
luc__a list came up16:14
[THC]AcidRainwildbat, fstab is epic fail16:14
ActionParsnipluc__: yay, enable the nvidia driver16:14
[THC]AcidRainfstab is what is causing all these problems for me i believe16:14
luc__downloading now16:15
luc__how do you get the name to come on here16:15
xtcvhi everyone, i need some help16:16
xtcvI got a wireless network card that acts funny16:16
xtcvany ideas?16:16
ActionParsnipluc__: type a few of the characters of the name and press TAB16:16
jstoonextcv: in which way funny?16:17
[THC]AcidRainxtcv, what version of linux?16:17
ActionParsnipxtcv: also what wifi chip is it16:17
rumpe1[THC]AcidRain, if you have to use f12 to start some boot-manager to select the internal drive, set the internal drive in BIOS as boot-device (with higher priority?). If linux asks to skip the external drives, because they couldn't be found, add "noauto" to their fstab-entries16:17
luc__ActionParsnip, thanks16:17
FloodBot1d0pe: Please don't flood; use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste; don't use Enter as punctuation.16:17
luc__ActionParsnip, this is my first week using linux16:18
[THC]AcidRainrumpe1, that actually sounds good. but wouldnt noauto mean that i have to mount them manually? and my internal drive is set as the first drive to boot from16:18
xtcvubuntu 11.04 x86  Belkin can't remember which one... some websites load fine, others load REALLY slow, or not at all.  Thing is I can hook up my android phone and wireless thether the wifi through the USB and it's fast as anything16:18
rumpe1[THC]AcidRain, noauto in fstab prevents mounting at boot-time, it doesn't prevent automount later16:19
luc__ActionParsnip, need to restart comp now16:19
[THC]AcidRainrumpe1, that sounds like a perfect fix, hang on, let me do some googling16:19
xtcvusing the ath5k driver16:19
jstoonextcv: It's necessarily your chip (hopefully it isn't). Have you tried to contact your ISP?16:20
jstoonextcv: Sorry, It's NOT necessarily your chip*16:21
xtcvwell i don't think it's the ISP, as I said, Router -> Phone (wifi) -> USB is full speed (10Mbps)16:21
xtcvWifes laptop runs great too....16:21
jstoonextcv: Oh, I thought you ment 3G tethering ;)16:21
xtcvjust this PC16:21
jstoonextcv: that stinks, let me google a bit.16:22
xtcvoh I 3G tether all the time... :_)16:22
[THC]AcidRainrumpe1, so for example: UUID=1d112679-6e31-481f-86eb-f7ec25756183/media/Server2  ext3  errors=noauto,remount-rw,users,user  0  016:22
[THC]AcidRainwould this be correct?16:22
jstoonextcv: I know! It's awesome!16:23
=== xy is now known as evilxy
rumpe1[THC]AcidRain, no, noauto has nothing to do with errors16:23
apleHey guys, how do I remove something without leaving any orphans and such? I'm trying to uninstall virtualenv and virtualenvwrapper and reinstall them completely clean16:24
apleTried pip uninstall, but it left ~/.virtualenv16:24
jstoonextcv: Did it work/have you tried it in the older versions?16:24
luc_ActionParsnip, still no sound but now i have the left side bar16:24
rumpe1[THC]AcidRain, why "users,user" ?16:24
xtcvIt's a Belkin FD5700016:24
[THC]AcidRainwell that means any user can mount, and user can write? right?16:24
xtcvYeah in 10.04 it worked great16:25
xtcvit works well in ::gulp:: Windows 716:25
llutz[THC]AcidRain:no, read  "man mount" again16:25
basslinerhi there. how can i enable a getty on ttyS0 on a todays ubuntu system that doesn't have an /etc/inittab file? thanks.16:26
jstooneI found this little fella': https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/775104 - could it be your bug?16:26
ubottuLaunchpad bug 775104 in linux (Ubuntu) "Kernel ath5k driver wireless signal strength critically weak " [Medium,Incomplete]16:26
jstoonextcv: Or not you bug like in your bugpost, but do you think it's the same problem?16:26
[THC]AcidRainoh its group user16:26
llutz[THC]AcidRain:no, read  "man mount" again16:26
knobydobs@luc__ right click the file, go to the permissions tab and let it be run as executable16:27
xtcv???? I'm16:27
llutz[THC]AcidRain: you set permissions using chmod/chown on ext-fs, not via fstab/mount-options16:27
rumpe1[THC]AcidRain, man mount: "user: ordinary user can mount  [and only he can] unmount"  "users: allow every user to mount/unmount"16:27
rumpe1[THC]AcidRain, why not just "defaults,users,noauto" ?16:28
apleHow do I uninstall something without leaving orphans?16:28
[THC]AcidRainrumpe1, and leave out the errors option?16:28
douglI installed windows which trashed my ubuntu install so I ran boot-repair and now ubuntu takes and incredibly long time to boot up... any suggestions?16:28
douglran boot-repair to reinstall grub...16:28
[THC]AcidRainrumpe1, well honestly i had it somewhat the way you are telling me before hand. then i lost so much faith in myself i downloaded storage device manager from repos. and it added that information in there just like that16:29
[THC]AcidRainand it was rated 4.5 stars16:29
xtcvdougl it's always best to install win first then ubuntu16:29
[THC]AcidRainso i assumed it knew a little more than i did16:29
ThinkT510aple: try using synaptic and find what you want to remove and select completely remove16:29
ThinkT510aple: just make sure you know nothing else depends on it16:29
mang0Is there any sort of colour calibration program for ubuntu? My screen looks seriously messed up o.o16:30
AlessonZaireI had a similar problem when I was using my on-board video card some months ago16:31
rumpe1[THC]AcidRain, i don't understand the error-option... why remount readwriteable, if there are some errors? usually you remount readonly (ro) for recovery.16:32
[THC]AcidRainrumpe1, well i took that out. like i said, that is what storage device manager did, not me16:32
[THC]AcidRainrumpe1, my next question for you. is why does it show under "Places" the device 2 times?16:33
luc_knobydobs, it says could not create the archive archive not supported16:33
