pmp6nlIs there any way to easily upload music to the Amazon cloud?  Thanks00:49
jkoltnerGuest8178: Ah, ok.  Actually, I think there's pretty good consensus that, for most people 10.10 is "as good or better" than 11.04. :-)  If you're running KUbuntu, 11.04 might be worth it... but otherwise, sticking with 10.10 is a perfectly reasonable thing to do.  I mean, your alternative is to spend a bunch of time trying to get your VM software to work -- it's assuredly can be made to work, but like many things Linux, it could take hours to do so as well.00:49
jkoltner11.04 has some regressions with regard to battery life on laptops as well, if that matters to you00:50

dr_willisYou could check the firewall  settings and be sure its open it.. or just test it by disabling the firewall01:06
dr_willisI find windows firewall causes more issues then it fix's for my home lan. My router handles the nasty traffic,01:07

gentoo-intelf4k3z, depends on cpu i suppose01:53
gentoo-intelf4k3z, most comps play hd fine nowadays01:54

gentoo-intelnot 100%02:05
ni1sisnt mkv matroska?02:05
zykotick9_f4k3z, mkv is a container, it could have all sorts of codecs inside02:05

f4k3zzykotick9_: i c02:05
f4k3zso we dont need to install specific codecs or something(like in windows) to play mkv files properly?02:06
knightvoidnsq i tried additional drivers, it did a search nothing came up..02:07
nsqknightvoid: what graphic card are you using?02:07
zykotick9_f4k3z, it's highly possible you do.  But mkv could have open or proprietary codecs inside02:07
knightvoidnsq, ran  lspci | grep VGA  00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 82852/855GM Integrated Graphics Device (rev 02)02:07

nsqf4k3z: you could just use vlc02:09
f4k3zalmoxarife: it laggs as well, and sometimes closes itself02:09
zykotick9_f4k3z, if the file players but plays poorly it's more likely a graphics card issue, then a codec/player issue.02:09
ni1sf4k3z, matoska is probably not at fault there02:09
almoxarifef4k3z: have you considered the issue may be related to something else? hardware?02:10

nsqknightvoid: "If you have an intel card, the minimum is the i945 and i965.", i dont know if your graphics card is older, but if it is, you need to wait for 11.10, there is 2d support.02:10

zykotick9_dr_willis, android autocorrect?02:59
zykotick9_beached, search for it in synaptic / U.S.C02:59

zykotick9_xosuitehearts, if it needs gnome3 you'd best forget about it (unless you want to break unity)03:01
Shortstraw8zykotick I'm real new to this, so the download says Vmware-Player-3.1.4-385536.x86_64.bundle So would I enter all that?03:01
xosuiteheartszykotick9_ thats what Im trying to figure out, if it needs gnome 303:01
xosuiteheartsbecause gnome 3 is horrible03:01
dr_willisthe gnome 3 core wont break it i thought03:02
zykotick9_Shortstraw8, "chmod +x Vmware-Player-3.1.4-385536.x86_64.bundle" then "gksu ./Vmware-Player-3.1.4-385536.x86_64.bundle" should work03:02
BrandonBoltonxosuitehearts: Gnome 3 and 11.04 is a no no together, I had to reinstall the OS. Gnome 3 is really nice though, it isn't horrible.03:02

BrandonBoltonxosuitehearts: Personally I don't think you would have any problems. Just try and see. Either way you will learn new things. :)03:06
zykotick9_T3CHKOMMIE, did you run "sudo update-grub2" after changing 40_custom?03:06

zykotick9_beached, "sudo service gdm stop"03:06
T3CHKOMMIEzykotick9_, yes, sure did multiple times :(03:06

zykotick9_T3CHKOMMIE, is 40_custom set to executable?03:07
RanngerExcuse me, "the screen frame 60, that any mouse refresh rate higher than 60 will not have any effect," it that right03:07

beachedis there a way I can start up in text only?03:10
=== Dion is now known as Guest67630
ubottuTo start your system in text-only mode append 'text' (without the quotes) to the kernel line in the grub menu. You can access the grub menu by pressing Esc (Grub legacy) or Shift (Grub2) during boot. For more info see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BootOptions#Text%20Mode03:10
T3CHKOMMIEdr_willis, no, i can see the grub menu on every boot. its just showing the ubuntu/rcover and the two memtest entries it is not showing my custom entry :(03:10
zykotick9_beached, personally i'd just "mv /etc/init/GDMFILENAME /etc/init/GDMFILENAME.disabled" myself.  replace GDMFILENAME with the proper name.03:11
Shortstraw8zykotick9_,  I says no such File or directory And now I have lost the name of that other one was It vbox?03:11

urlin2udoad, windows is not booting?03:31
zykotick9_Paganini, that "jargon" is the list of running programs03:32
Lynnaoh you have to reboot and then press the key to choose the vista version when it reboots03:32

zebastianortisso that ntsf and fat partitions will automatically mount03:32

Paganiniit's not a tonne of programs just the one but there's a lot of things running I think, although this PID I killed may have worked :)03:33
doadi have got my windows vista serial number surely i can downlaod it03:33
Lynnameans you have to quit Ubuntu, and choose restart and when it restarts watch the screen you will see some choices on what operating system to boot into. On my machine f12 gets me the boot menu but on some machines its escape key.03:33
zykotick9_zebastianortis, they should automount by default - in a terminal type "groups", is plugdev listed?03:33

urlin2ugebbione, I wonder if if needs a chkdsk, just a theory here, it has worked right?04:09
kon_turns out the problem with the sporadic slowness was due to having ext4 barrier enabled, which in turn caused jdb2 to make the cpu wait for io a lot04:09

qinhylian: from tty: xinit -- :1 vt8 will give you plain xserver, either you can stop gdm or boot into text.04:19

SubCoolurlin2u, not yet.. system is hanging on the liveUSB, might have to use this one.. (not that u know my USB status lol)04:24
hylianqin, i know, but it always displays small for me, and i also would default it black for me. i was hoping there was a way to get something similar to ctrl alt f1, for instance, plus x11 capability. cli that can actually load images or videos, for intance.04:24
celltechIs Transmission the best? Or is there better? Something that doesn't eat up all my system resources?04:26

sublim21simple question.  im trying to uninstall wine on a natty narwhal installation.  i uninstalled from the software center, but i would like to be sure it's completely uninstalled.  whats the terminal command to permanently remove it?  i know it should be sudo apt-get purge something04:27
celltechAwesome... Now here's the fun part. Can I transfer a partial download from transmission to rtorrent. or do I have to waite till it's done04:27
qincelltech: Maybe.04:28
celltechI hope04:28
celltechTransmission is slow...04:28
qinsublim21: rm -rf ~/.wine (very carefull!!!), and: locate wine (remove rest)04:29
memandcelltech: you can start the torrent in rtorrent and set to download to the same destination as the partial (with the same filename of course) and the before you start the torrent you do a force re-check04:30
memandthat should do it04:30
qinsublim21: sudo apt-get remove --purge wine (should remove configs and docs)04:30

rustyshacklefordhaving trouble pairing my bluetooth wireless keyboard. it balks at the "enter the following passcode" phase. any thoughts as to how to proceed?04:36
urlin2uslide, have you been tweaking compiz?04:36
Blue1rustyshackleford: usually the default pass code is: 000004:36
slideurlin2u, nope04:36
qinrustyshackleford: I think bt default was 0000 or 123404:37
Blue1qin: or that04:37
rustyshacklefordBlue1, its not that. it recognizes the device. its at the actual pairing stage. I entered the security code as requested (its a randomly generated one) and nothing happens04:37
urlin2uslide, compiz --replace will restart compiz and again after closing the terminal04:37
rustyshacklefordjust ... doesn't work04:37
slideurlin2u, i think it is still running, because if i hit the menu, and then click on the place that my launcher is supposed to be, then the app launches04:37
Blue1rustyshackleford: never heard of one randomly generated but okay - sorry I can't help04:38
rustyshacklefordand with all of this wireless stuff, i don't know how to tell if its my hardware, or a software setting (i think its probably a software thing)04:38

SubCoolurlin2u, not at all04:45
urlin2uSubCool, so lets make sure I understand when you power on you have no boot or windows wont boot?04:46
Blue1pretzelface: i am going to go out on a limb - there might be flash active elsewhere (on the page) that is not present in full screen mode.04:46
pretzelfaceBlue1, I don't think that's the issue; it happens on every site, and I run adblock anyway.04:47
urlin2uSubCool, anyway supergrub 2 is for booting into a broken grub 2 setup, if you get in you can put grub back in the mbr, or purge it and reinstall if needed then to the mbr.04:48

Blue1rustyshackleford: only bluetooth I have played with are my hearing aids.04:52
urlin2uSubCool, yeah that is a chroot from a live cd that works as well, personally I just get in with supergrub and do it from inside the OS if possible, sometimes you don't even have to chroot, if you have the cd of the installed same release as well.04:52
Blue1and cell phones04:52

urlin2uSubCool, all this realy depends on the damage done, as far as access and reloading grub.04:53
rustyshackleford.. i suppose you're going to say the obvious solution is to upgrade?04:53
Blue1rustyshackleford: wow that was 6 months ago - so fairly recently04:54
Blue1rustyshackleford: dunno not tried bt at all on my computers04:54
Blue1rustyshackleford: curiously have you tried this in windows?04:55
rustyshacklefordno i haven't and that's a brilliant idea04:56

SubCoolknew i shoulda picked up the 16 gig05:11

grendal-primeya so anyway06:00
SIFTUmaheanuu: you can do QoS depending on your router06:00
Besogonmaheanuu: It's not related to wifi there is a firewall problem. I never did such things by the way06:00

jamescarrguys... I'm migrating an ubuntu 8 server over to 11.1006:16

The boot splash almost never works, normally I just get a black screen (if it was ubuntu, purple), occasionally a couple of init messages. The shut down splash works ~1/3 of the time, the rest of the time it's just like the boot06:17

After bootup, the screen brightness drops to 80% and will *not* go up higher, nothing helps - xbrightness, keyboard manipulations, nothing! Apparently, this happens when udev is processing stuffs. Any way to tell udev to keep the brightness at 100%?06:37
bullgard4theadmin: If this phenomenon appears "with any other distros" then the hardware of your friend is at fault and udev cannot help.06:40

bullgard4theadmin: If this phenomenon appears with any other operating system then the hardware of your friend is at fault and udev cannot help.06:42

urlin2utaraduffy, you can run unity -reset to get it back as installed and follow this link to set up the cube correctly.

urlin2utaraduffy, this will restart compiz as needed while you mess with it.07:40
taraduffyurlin2u: OK. many thanks :-))07:40
kilonzHammeRz: that will open the app right ? i have already opened it. Multiple windows of it. I want to browse through the windows07:40
urlin2utaraduffy, no problem the displex does what the fusion icon did in earlier releases.07:41
zHammeRzno, it shouldn't..at least it doesn't for me..maybe it's a app by app basis07:41
zHammeRzwhat is the app?07:41
kilonzHammeRz:  the applications tab shows none of my opened apps07:42
taraduffyurlin2u, thanks again :-))07:42
ct529anyone using unity? I appear not to be able to modify the  main bar .... every time I put an application in it, whenever I log out, it resets the bar07:42
urlin2uanli_, has the card ever worked?07:43
zHammeRzkilon, it works with terminal, I just opened 7 windows and then clicking on the icon with the left mouse button brought up a bunch of windows of all my open terminals I could choose from07:43
urlin2uct529, are you putting apps there ?07:43
scarleoct529: Is it the launcher on the left side ur talking abt?07:44
kilonzHammeRz: its allow me to open only a single terminal window07:44
urlin2utaraduffy, no problem have fun. :D07:45
kilondamn unity acts so weird07:45
zHammeRzkilon, then I don't know..that isn't how mine is working and I just use the defaults07:46
taraduffyurlin2u: last thing, I downloaded from the link - how do Install it?07:46

XceptNDo you know if 11.10 to include Gnome 3.0 environment in addition to Unity?07:46
aepluskilon, use ctrl+shift+n07:46
anli_urlin2u: It has always worked poor since I installed 11.0407:46
kilonaeplus: that combo opens a scripts manager07:47
anli_Maybe it wasnt that good before either07:47
aepluskilon: with the terminal application having focus?07:47
kilonaeplus: ah ok, now it works07:48
aeplusi either use terminal tabs or new windows07:48
kiloni am ablet to create multiple windows of terminal07:48
kilonhowever if i maximise all those terminal windows how i can browse through them ?07:48
aepluskilon, works with for terminal application in other windows managers as well07:49
kilonyeah i know alt+Tab07:49
kiloni was seeking for some alternative07:49
kilona gui element maybe07:49
cvamI upgraded Ubuntu from 10.10 to 11.04 . the system said upgrade is complete but with some errors(it says gconf is failed to install or update). when I log in after upgrade desktop is shown without  panel then Using create launcher i launch terminal and then gnome-panel.I have to do this on every login. how to fix this07:50
aepluskilon, i prefer using tabs instead of windows... ctrl+shift+t07:50
aeplusthen you can use alt+1, alt+2 to select tabs07:50

kilonwhat that had to do with widows ?07:55
aeplusoh, i figured running applications, i don't have that many running07:56
urlin2ukilon, there should be little indicators on the open apps icons in the left panel on the far left of the icon one dot per app what happens when you click multiple time on the icon if you have multiple instances of one open?07:56
kilonurlin2u: indeed there is07:56
aeplusas for window terminals, i use tabs and shuffle between them... i probably only have five terminal sessions open at any time07:56
kilonurlin2u: its tries to move the icon07:57
aeplusclicking on it, should present the options07:57
kilonmy bad07:57

wh1zz0Hi guys.. Im on natty and I have ubuntuadhoc setup (and encrypted of course) .. 2 windows PC usually access my internet via my adhoc. But my question is this.. How can I see the computers that are currently connected to my internet service, so I can always watch, trace and know when it's beyond the two people I've given then WEP key??08:00
_etaeplus: that gives just the kernel version. But what I need is a way to find out the build date .. :)08:00
urlin2u_et, the command given should help but the channel for help is #ubuntu+108:00
_eturlin2u: Thank you!08:00
aeplushah, i thought uname -a gave the build date08:01
_etaeplus: Apparently, it doesn't.08:02
anli_urlin2u: oh, its a wired card08:04
aeplusi guess my install is system-specific08:04
kilonunity acts weird , it does not appear when i move the mouse to the left, sometimes08:05
ct529scarleo: yes it is the launcher08:08
sunit_aeplus: closing firefox is not helping08:08
ct529urlin2u: yes, I put the applications there and then I click on the "keep it in the launcher"08:08
aeplussunit_, i was guessing it was a memory leak, you wouldn't happen to be running eclipse or an eclipse-derived application?08:08
scarleoct529: SO how do you add the apps to it? Right click and Keep in launcher?08:09
ct529scarleo: yes08:10
scarleoct529: Not sure abt what might cause that, I know my launcher gets reset sometimes if another user logs in between my logins, but I never had it reset just from login/logout08:11
ct529scarleo: but then I log out .... and they are not kept in launcher08:11
ct529scarleo: is there a configuration file I cna modify by hand?08:11
aliboHello, where is the place to set environment varialbes that need to be set before a services starts. It is that tomcat6 needs to have CATALINA_HOME set before it starts.08:13
kilonhow i have access via unity to all classic menus like for example additional driver , synaptic etc ?08:13
aliboMy question is where can I set them? In the ~/.bashrc would be too late.08:13
scarleoct529: I think you are better off finding the source of the problem, I'm not sure how to debug that though. Have you tried creating a new user and see if the same happens there?08:14

vercingetorixhi. i uninstalled emerald with 'sudo apt-get purge emerald' and now i have no window-borders. i have tried to rectify this by making sure i had window borders in System>Preferences>Appearence to no avail. How do I get window borders back?08:24
vercingetorixbtw window borders === _ + x     to maximize, minimize, close. has title of window, etc08:25
tomodachivercingetorix: emereald, at least used to be the stuff handling window borders back in the day. Maybe you should reinstall it? or go for unity2d08:25
tomodachiwich is not compiz08:25
kilonanyone else has problem that when you maximise a window , it become all white ?08:25
vercingetorixorly? i thought i had installed emerald from outside sources, not that it was included with ubuntu08:26
tomodachikilon: happend to me once in a while, but i have no solution for it.08:26
tomodachivercingetorix: do you remembert the name of the package? (then i can compare with my install)08:26
kilonyeah tomodachi same here, happens once a while. I thouht it was my drivers , but even downloading from nvidia did not help08:26
vercingetorixemerald-theme-manager or something08:26
vercingetorixi'm just apt-getting emerald again08:26
mkquistvercingetorix: try installing compiz-settings-manager and enable decorations...08:27
tomodachivercingetorix: i dont have it, but accordingt to apt it conflicts with cgwd, gcompitzthemer08:27
tomodachiso maybe you need them back , to replace the hole emerald left08:27
mkquistvercingetorix: after installing compiz of course08:27
vercingetorixah i see now08:27
vercingetorixi have compiz-settings-manager mkquist08:28
vercingetorixalso compiz08:28
vercingetorixwhat happened is in window decorations08:28
tomodachikilon: I also have nvidia, myst say im waiting for the next release, Then im turning to LTS. cant stand this bugginess no more. UNtill they rething the release cycle a bit08:28
vercingetorixin 'Command' field it has 'emerald --replace'08:28
vercingetorixi believe before it was supposed to be 'metacity --replace'08:28
vercingetorixlemme try08:28
kilonNVIDIA GEFORCE 62000 Turbocache08:28

filePeterHi, on my Thinkpad T520, ubuntu LTS does not seem to have ethernet... wifi works... What could e the matter?08:32
kilonFudge: have you tried ubuntu recovery mode ?08:32
tomodachifilePeter: do you see the devices when typing ifconfig in the terminal?08:32

filePetertomodachi: No. lspci states there is a device... nothing more..08:33
kilonFudge: there is a low graphics mode, if its a graphic problem it will allow you to fix it08:33
kilonataq_: nothing in google ?08:33
Fudgeim fine with the command line kilon08:33
Fudgebut someone else is reading it for me and thought recovery wasnt a full bash08:34
teweWorkwhere can i find logs (or any information) why mount hangs? i'm trying to mount some windows shares and it works almost always, but sometimes it just hangs (about once every month) and i have to reboot to fix it, i wanna know why it happens and fix it without rebooting08:34
vercingetorixseems to be better08:34
vercingetorixwindow border is back at least08:34
ataq_kilon: No nothing, as far as I can see, it just completely relies on openprinting.org08:34
urlin2uvercingetorix, you have window decoration ticked in compiz?08:34
vercingetorixyep urlin2u08:34
Fudgekilon  with recovery is it easy enough to brin gup an interface so i can ssh08:34
kilonfair enough08:35
urlin2uvercingetorix, compiz has some refresh problems in natty compiz --replace wil restart it or logging out sometimes a reboot is needed.08:36
vercingetorixin lucid 10.04 still urlin2u, plus i think this is a solved issue, thanks :)08:36
talinhello. if i make an SSH-account such that someone can use an SSH-tunnel to access my non-public computers... how can i do that, but prevent them from having an interactive shell?08:36
urlin2uvercingetorix, cool you have the fusion icon to use if needed.08:36
vercingetorixfusion icon?08:37
omidphey guys i thnk im not supposed to ask about this here but for an emergency i  do it08:37

anli_Hoiw can I trouble shoot that?08:50
cheaterhook up your monitor to the other graphic card output.08:50
urlin2uraj-darkmystery, so you get to the f6 for nomodeset is that how your using that command08:51
raj-darkmysteryyes urlin2u I tried with nomodeset using F6 but no luck08:52
urlin2uraj-darkmystery, sorry a install, has it ever booted in and have you changed the grphic drivers?08:52
anli_Seems to be a common ubuntu error message with a totally black screen at startup08:52
urlin2uraj-darkmystery, okay so it is a live cd ot=r thumb here?08:52
cheateranli_, did you try what i said?08:53
raj-darkmysteryhad installed it previously but the same issue no graphics.. and right now I am using live cd08:53
anli_cheater: ah, its only one output, I think, must see08:53
raj-darkmysteryurlin2u, had installed it previously but the same issue no graphics.. and right now I am using live cd08:53
anli_cheater: hm, its not :)08:53
urlin2uraj-darkmystery, do you know the gpu?08:53
anli_cheater: wow, thats better :)08:54
raj-darkmysteryurlin2u, gpu? sorry 'm not aware about that.. can you please guide?08:54
anli_I will probaby not need xwindows on this computer, can I just uninstall it and reboot?08:54
cheaterwhy will you not08:55
anli_Its a server08:55
urlin2uraj-darkmystery, so this is a little confusing here, can you be real specific your on a live cd is this on that computer, and what live cd?08:55
anli_And I dont have use for xwindows08:55
cheateryou use it for the desktop08:55
mrn__hey guys08:55

urlin2uraj-darkmystery, of?08:55
histoanli_: what are you trying to do?08:56
anli_"I will probaby not need xwindows on this computer, can I just uninstall it and reboot?"08:56
cheateri thought you meant that x is a server08:56
anli_I have not use for it08:56
cheaterthen you shouldn't be using the desktop edition08:56
histoanli_: sure08:56
cheateruse the server version then08:56
cheaterbut yes you can uninstall it08:56
anli_I know, but now I have the desktop edition08:56
mrn__i was installing openjdk -6 in my machine after complete installation i  powered off my system . But now if i am trying to log  into the system it is not accepting the password08:56

histoanli_: that being said  you can remove X and reboot and get to a command line system.08:57
histocheater: it's an option on the alternate iso. It installs ubuntu minimal08:57
cheaterhisto, any idea how to get the deb for an older version of a package?08:57
cheateri really need it08:57
histocheater: look in your /var/cache/apt/archives/08:57
paladinlawhi, i got a weird problem. when i install nvidia drivers my max resolution is 640x480. But if i dont install it i can have up to 1280x720. My question is will my graphic card run as it should if i dont install the drivers?08:58
cheaternot there08:58
cheateri need to download it08:58
histocheater: if you need one from an older version of ubuntu you can hunt around in packages.ubuntu.com08:58
urlin2uraj-darkmystery, and you said you used f6, this is only on a live cd or usb/pendrive, can you see how this is confusing. In that your using a live cd but you are giving rather conflicting info no be-ig deal just trying to get to the answer of what is actually installed as well.08:58
cheaterhisto, what if it's from a ppa or something like that?08:59
urlin2uraj-darkmystery, do you have 10.04 installed?08:59
histocheater: you'd have to check with that ppa then08:59
histocheater: or you could possible find the source code of the original package and just build the old version yourself09:00
cheaterhisto, that ppa seems to be down. it's the google-chrome-stable ppa09:00
histocheater: and what is wrong witht he current stable?09:00
cheateri need the old version to perform tests09:00

Here is my proftpd conf: http://pastie.org/2525328 - any ideas?09:00
raj-darkmysteryurlin2u, yes I do have ubuntu 10.04 installed but I am not able to get the graphics so right now 'm trying on live CD and checking if anyhow I can get the graphics :( so for now we can think we are on live cd only and nothing is installed09:01
DavstHi, I'm having some weird issues with a USB drive, problem is the USB drive will shutdown randomly (once every 1 or 2 days) this behavior doesn't exist if it's hooked up to a windows or OSX machine. Also it stays mounted and says device is busy if i try to unmount it. Anyone know if there is a USB drive fix for ubuntu?09:01
StarminnA USB drive is suddenly read-only. How can I fix this?09:02
histoStarminn: mount it r/w09:03
urlin2uraj-darkmystery, you can't fix this from the live cd, have you done a nomodeset from the grub menu with using e to edit the kernel?09:05
raj-darkmysteryIntel corporation Sandy Brudge Integrated Graphics Controller, no graphics in ubuntu 10.04, nomodeset is also not able to solve the issue :(09:05
raj-darkmysteryyes urlin2u i tried that as well.. while booting I replaced quite splash with nomodeset but the result was same :(09:05
Starminnhisto: Clearly. I want to plug it in, and it be read/write, like it used to be. Suddenly it's mounting as read. I want it to stop.09:05
histoStarminn: what were  you last playing with when this behavior started?09:06
DavstNoone has any idea about the USB drive that occasionally powers down itself?09:06
cheaterhisto, i also have another package which *is* from ubuntu, but i don't know how to find that older version. what did you mean by hunting around on packages.ubuntu.com? i can't find it there09:07
histocheater: yeah you won't find it there if you installed it from a ppa09:07
cheaterhisto, no it's from the main repository09:08
benoliver999Has anyone tried moving their whole OS to SSD without doing a clean install? Is it worth doing? I have a 1TB HDD but want to use it just for storage.09:08
cheateryou know what never mind09:08
histobenoliver999: it can be done but i would back up your home first09:08
cheaterthe package in question was php509:08
histocheater: oh well you can find older versions of that09:09
urlin2uraj-darkmystery, I think you can get it to work this is outside my area of knowledge in general, so others can help, the channel is really busy during the day US time, and the ubuntu forums are a great resource as well.09:09
histocheater: earlier you said it was google chrome stable09:09
cheaterif any of its files had bad blocks in them, they probably were less buggy than the code the php team wrote09:09
benoliver999Thanks histo.09:09
cheaterhisto, this is another one (i did mention that :p)09:09
histocheater: what version of php5 are you looking for?09:09
rosaliatembehi all09:10
rosaliatembei need to connect to an irc channel for mac os x09:10
histocheater: what is the specific package name you are looking for?  you may have issues with all the dependencies etc..09:11
raj-darkmysterythanks urlin2u I need to ask it later in evening then :( as day here09:11
cheaterhisto, i don't know09:11
cheaterer well09:11
cheaterthe *package* name is php509:11
cheaterbut i don't know the package archive name09:11
rosaliatembecan anyone help me. how to join to an mac os x channel?09:12
histocheater: well 10.04 which is the LTS release has 5.3.2-ubuntu4.909:12
Starminnhisto: Honestly I don't know what did it because the time span between when it worked like it should and now is like 2 months, and as you can imagine a lot has been played with.09:12
histoStarminn: does this happen with other thumb drives?09:12
_____zxcheater: try ubuntuupdates.org09:12
urlin2uraj-darkmystery, some of the users that are in England come on soon and they are good at this stuff. :D09:12
Starminnhisto: Nope09:13
cheater_____zx, i have tried but i didn't find any debs there, where do i go specifically?09:14
histoStarminn: let me check some other stuff09:14
raj-darkmysteryurlin2u, is it possible that anyhow my raid configuration is interrupting the normal installation or functioning?09:14
cheaterhisto, i know, that is not the one i am looking for. I need the exact version.09:14
cheaterthe checksums need to match.09:14
histocheater: i'm sure someone has it laying around but I don't think you're going to get much help here with installing packages from a different version of ubuntu09:15
histocheater: you're just looking at creating all sorts of issues.09:15
histocheater: i'd just download 5.3.2 from php.org and compile yourself09:15
heylelshalemhey anyone know a command to unmute a sound channel in terminal?09:15
histoheylelshalem: i'd use alsamixer09:15
urlin2uraj-darkmystery, I'm not familiar with raid, so I can't say but that along with the graphic info is important to mention so the others who help can work with that if needed, the more info about your setup the better.09:15
cheaterhisto, that is not going to be the same thing. i need the exact package archive for that exact package version.09:16
cheaterit's not from a different version of ubuntu, it's just an older version of the package from the same version of ubuntu. you are confused.09:16
StarminnOn Ubuntu 10.10, when my system goes into Power Save mode it becomes unresponsive. Tips?09:16
histoStarminn: there is a problem with your usb drive09:17
histoStarminn: i would fsck it09:17
histoStarminn: unmount it and try sudo dosfsck -a -v /dev/sdbx  where x is the # of the partition on that drive09:18
histoStarminn: you can find out with sudo fdisk -l to see all the drives connected to your machine.09:18
Starminnhisto: Lol, due to the meme it's become I read that second line differently at first. ;)09:18
Starminnhisto: But alright, one moment.09:18
histoStarminn: it may not be /dev/sdb# could be /dev/sdc etc....09:19
histoStarminn: and that's dosfsck not dofsck09:19

marcvangendHi. I'd like to use Kate on Ubuntu, but apt-get tells me that it will install 188MB, mostly KDE libs. I'm wondering if it will hurt performance if I install it...09:23
histoStarminn: okay sudo umount /dev/sdb1 && sudo dosfsck -a -v /dev/sdb109:25
histomarcvangend: you need the some of the KDE libs for it to run09:25
urlin2umarcvangend, probably not what is the cpu and you memory amount?09:25
somsip_marcvangend: I had the same earlier with gedit - 88MB of libs just to run it :-/ I dislike the bloat, but what can you do, eh?09:26
histosomsip_: use vim09:26

ubottunetsplit is when two IRC servers of the same network (like freenode) disconnect from each other, so users on one server stop seeing users on the other. If this is happening now, just relax and enjoy the show. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Netsplit09:37

pirxhello! on some 10.04 systems i have noticed that the command 'less' actually executes bash scripts (when i am expecting to just look at them). it seems that they have to exist in some $PATH dir for that to happen, but it doesnt happen on all servers. cant find anything about it in the man page either, nor on google... has anyone noticed such a thing?09:37
Starminnhisto: Oh, the drive is actually empty. How could I reformat it? (If you could give me a lead before you leave?)09:38
oCeanpirx: I've never seen that. Even when the file you want to view using 'less' is not in your current directory (cwd) but in your PATH only, it still is not supposed to execute. For example, try  less ls  it will show an error for less, but not execute ls09:41

dhruvasagarHi, is there any tool that would allow me to have a small video window preview screen always on top11:52
jribdhruvasagar: preview of what?11:54
dhruvasagarjrib: sorry I wasn't clear. Ideally I would want it for any 'window'. But if there's one specific for some video player, it would be best. Like for instance is there something like that for vlc ?11:55
dhruvasagarBasically so I could work and have a look at the video at the same time11:55
jribdhruvasagar: you can make any window be always on top11:55
=== Guest3312 is now known as jbache
dhruvasagarjrib: that I know, but i'll have to resize and then place it somewhere on the screen and then set it to be always on top, isn't there something that can just do that ?11:56
jribdhruvasagar: meh you can do that with any window.  But here's what you could do with mplayer for example: mplayer -ontop -geometry 100%:100%11:56
dhruvasagarjrib: 100%:100%? what would that do ?11:57
jribdhruvasagar: puts the window in the bottom left corner11:57
bastidrazordhruvasagar: you should also be able to alt+right click > always on top11:57
jribdhruvasagar: bottom right i mean11:57
dhruvasagarjrib: but what about the window size ?11:58
dhruvasagarjrib: can I set that too ?11:58
jribdhruvasagar: you can pass that through -geometry too, just see man page for syntax11:58

jribastropirate: do you also want the server to quit when you quit ssh?12:02
jribastropirate: but you want to manually start it by logging in and typing a command?12:02
dhruvasagarastropirate: then you should use nohup12:02
astropiratehmm i want it to stay running even if i'm not SSHed in12:03
astropiratei'm trying to figure out how to make it auto start on system reboot12:03
astropiratebut its a VPS12:03
astropirateand odn' thave access to the startup process file12:03
jribastropirate: that's fine and you can use either type "disown" at the end of your command, use nohup as dhruvasagar suggests, use tmux, or use screen.  But usually people just have these processes start at boot12:03
astropiratebut I haven't had to reboot yet so thats not an issue yet12:03
dhruvasagarastropirate: for autostart on system reboot, you can use cron. for ensuring it is still running when you quit ssh, use nohup before your command.12:04
Younderastropirate, You need so has a static server and you need public key certification tu run a ssh tunnel that runs at startup12:05

Younderjdw_: This is probably a PATH issue. The new one may have gone by default to /usr/local/bin, and probably you are getting the original version in /usr/bin. You might want to uninstall the original (aptitude remove openssl); if that breaks stuff, re-make the new openssl with more conventional paths.12:25

somsip_martian: you want to be able to ssh to your machine from any other client?14:21
BluesKajmartian, that depends on whether you use network manager or not ... I'm sure NM can be setup not to overwrite the namserver stting resolv.conf , but i haven't looked into that14:21
martiansomsip_: I have a dyndns set up which works fine. I can ssh to my home system at ease. I just thought it would be _nice_ to be able to alias a longer dns to a shorter one14:22
zayamartian: I came across something like that but I have to find where, it saves your login passcode and such but you need to set it up on both ends for that. It was an advanced security login for ssh14:23
somsip_martian: you want to be able to type 'ssh home' at any other client instead of (say) 'ssh home.mydyndns.org'?14:23
martiansomsip_: right, but if I simply alias 'home' to my actual home IP in hosts, it won't work if my home IP changes14:24
martianso it's almost like I would want something in the guttyworks to sed 'home' for 'blah.dyndns.org'14:25

martianSo, unrelated to my previous question: I have a remote system mounted via sshfs, and on that remote system I have a symlink for /var/www in my home directory called www. The problem is that when I navigate that filesystem from this remote system, the www symlink points to my local /var/www14:44
somsip_RussW: in the xth month of 201214:44
somsip_martian: would a hard link instead of a ln -s make any difference?14:46
martiansomsip_: well, I guess this is one of those things that in my few years of being a mediocre linux user I have always just accepted and moved past: whenever I try to hard link a directory, I am told "ln: `/var/www': hard link not allowed for directory"14:47

william_you guys need an "oracle person"15:28
chamunkswilliam_, well i suppose that would make sense seeing as this is an issue persistant between windoze and ubuntu.15:28
william_<--running ubuntu 10.10 on an old eMachine desktop15:28
SNSKrblst, see i have same problem as you, my network manager shows me no connections, even though i can surf15:29
william_bought a VisionTek card that is open cl capable..100Gflops15:29
rblstSNKS, what i do not understand is what is changed so that NetworkManager/ModemManager fails to use my modem15:29
chamunkswilliam_, thanks for the ideas, I wonder what direction that I should start myself off in. :S15:30
william_if you go to oracles site..and log in..they have a chat window for their gurus15:30
chamunkswilliam_, my issue is that I'm not even running openindiana/solaris15:30
rblstSNSK, i checked syslog and usb_modeswitch does its thing but then modem manager remains dead silent when it should come in and do its thing15:30
william_don't use nexenta..it messed with my dqrd drive15:30
chamunkswilliam_, its a freenas box do you think they would still support freenas's ZFS stack?15:30
SNSKrblst, i cannot understand that15:31

william_use a seperate workstation..or laptop with zfs..see if you can access the "megafiles" with it15:31
user12345hello how to remove  GFCE ultra NES emulator .im using sudo apt-get remove .......... how15:32
rblstSNKS, i have been searching the web far and wide, but couldn't really find anything useful15:32
william_user12345...google "GFCE ultra NES " and "remove"15:32

ubottuwilliam_, please see my private message15:34
rblstSNSK, i am using 11.04, too; but i had the same problem with older distros as well15:34
PolahI just reinstalled from the minimal ISO and cannot access my system without the USB drive with the minimal ISO on plugged in. Attempting to boot with it not plugged in gives me a blink underscore and nothing else, I cannot access GRUB and press ctrl+alt+delete reboots my computer so I assume it's part of my BIOS attempting to pass over the operating system. Attempting to boot with my USB drive plugged in does not boot the minimal installer as15:34
SNSKbut atleast you can connect to net15:34
william_okokok..at least you guys run off the "ladybots"..15:34
william_<--microwave test engineer..not a network enginee15:34
dumbledorePolah: did you accidentally install GRUB in the USB stick?15:35
Jordan_UPolah: Boot into Ubuntu, run "sudo dpkg-reconfigure grub-pc".15:35
sipiorchamunks: sorry for butting in, but if you need zfs access from linux, you might find this interesting: http://zfsonlinux.org/15:35
sipiorchamunks: supports pool version 28 in the latest release.15:35
chamunkssipior, and here I've been using freenas like a dummy.15:36
Jordan_UPolah: What version of Ubuntu?15:36
chamunkssipior, I really want file deduplication ...15:36
PolahJordan_U: 11.0415:36
dumbledoreneed live computer stats (e.g. CPU temperature), what software can give me that?15:36
sipiorchamunks: well, freenas is perfectly fine, of course. but this zfs implementation does support deduplication.15:36
chamunkssipior, I've been loving my freenas experience especially because of its single page conf and simple access to being able to create iscsi targets15:36
ubottuTo access CPU temperature sensors and detect fan speeds, install the lm-sensors package. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SensorInstallHowto for installation and usage instructions.15:36
SIFTUsipior: do not use dedup on zfs unless you know what you are doing15:37
chamunkssipior, yeah the zfs in freenas is much older.15:37
dumbledoreubottu: okay, thanks. :)15:37
ubottudumbledore: I am only a bot, please don't think I'm intelligent :)15:37
chamunksSIFTU, why do you say that?15:37
sipiorSIFTU: fortunately, i do.15:37
SNSKrblst, let's see if we can get any help here15:37
Jordan_UPolah: Very odd. Could you file a bug report about this?15:37
dumbledoreoh :P, dr_willis: thanks :)15:37
SIFTUchamunks: you could have huge performance problems if you run out of RAM15:37
Polahdumbledore: It could be, but the installer mentioned installing to my first drive, the one I installed Ubuntu on.15:38
user12345apt-cache search patternok i will try it dr_willis15:38
chamunksSIFTU, ahh I've heard you need about a gig of ram per terabyte which would be an issue in my situation but I'm not exactly running a FTP server15:38
SIFTUchamunks: as it has to fit an index of all the blocks in RAM.. if you swap off to disk it will be very very slow15:38
dr_willis!info gfceu  | user1234515:38
ubottuuser12345: gfceu (source: gfceu): Graphical front-end using GTK2 for the FCE Ultra NES emulator. In component universe, is optional. Version 0.6.1-0ubuntu1 (natty), package size 30 kB, installed size 168 kB15:38
gigglesanyone else running 10.10 on an aspire one and getting KP's15:38
=== MortenTemp is now known as Morten_
chamunksSIFTU, I also have a OCZ throttle (a ssd usb key/esata key) I could swap off of.15:38
chamunksSIFTU, which would absorb quite a bit of this issue you bring to light.15:39
SIFTUchamunks: yeah you could use that as a lc2arc or zil15:39
chamunksSIFTU, pardon my ignorance to zfs terminology.15:39
Jordan_UPolah: Running "sudo dpkg-reconfigure grub-pc" and selecting your internal drive (*not* any partition) as an install device when prompted will fix this permanently.15:39
chamunksSIFTU, lx2arc / zil?15:39
william_10.10 on laptops is flaky...but does work..the ndiswrapper program can be a pain to loadintoa newer partition15:39
SIFTUchamunks: but it doesnt fix it.. I'm just saying be very careful. Most SUN engineers I have talked to say dont use it unless you know you have very duplicated data15:39
william_<--headin' for pizza15:40
gigglesi got full hardware william_15:40
chamunksSIFTU, I just know that there is alot of duplicate files on my server and I know that it would benefit from being deduped.15:40
SIFTUchamunks: zil is a wite cache using ssd, l2arc is a read cache using ssds15:40
Polah Jordan_U: Yes, I will try reinstalling GRUB in a moment15:40
william_64 or 32 bit ware giggles?15:40
chamunkssipior, would you know how I could reconfigure my pool for faster filetransfers to the pool from other network devices?15:41
gigglesthe kp's seem to be heat related though ... i cant put my finger on it yet though15:41
SIFTUchamunks: what type of files are they? can they be compressed with the inline filesystem compression? I would try that first15:41
william_then if you need to recompile...should be copacetic on most code...what issues you having?15:41
chamunksSIFTU, alot of it is already compessed archival files to begin with.15:41
SIFTUchamunks: ah ok.15:42
giggleswilliam_, i'll find the last crash log15:42
=== Mud is now known as Guest56792
SIFTUchamunks: zfs dedup is inline which means it has to look up the index whenever there is a write, it can cause big problems.. other verndors like netapp etc do dedup after the writes.. so the initial write is not slowed15:43
william_you just have one 10.10 ubuntu system...or is there a second...I did a USB boot drive..and used it on both my 64 bit and 32 bit systems15:43
ComradeHaz`Paganini: you're welcome ;)15:43
sipiorchamunks: zfs performance tweaking isn't something i know a great deal about, i'm afraid. SIFTU might have some ideas in that regard, though. you'll probably want to move to #ubuntu-offtopic, though, as this is a bit far afield for this channel :-)15:44
chamunksSIFTU, that could show benefits and caveats if you're concerned about space over speed and visa versa15:44
Paganinihi I've just installed ubuntu for the first time and using the package manager have installed Samba 1.2.63-0ubuntu4 (system-config-samba), but I'm unsure how to configure this to view my windows folder, any starter help would be appreciated :)15:44
giggleswilliam_, i have os9, osx, and 4 ubuntu 10.x machines15:44
SIFTUchamunks: very much so.. but I have seen dedup on zfs make the filesystem hang for 30+ seconds15:44
chamunkssipior, this is true15:44
SIFTUchamunks: pm me if you want to know more15:45
chamunksSIFTU, want to pm me or #ubuntu-offtopic15:45
william_and you are having hardware issues with a new machine on ubuntu..not any other os?15:45
gigglesyep .. i even got osx on to this little aspire one15:46
gigglesbut it ran like crap because of the video hardware15:46
subterfugeIf /boot is installed on USB stick are there any issues with removing the drive after the system is up?15:46
jarnosIs there any support for dead slow X of Natty?15:46
gentoo-intelsubterfuge, shouldnt be15:47
subterfugegentoo-intel: thanks, do you know if /boot is ever accessed for any reason after the system is up and running? such as during updates?15:48
gentoo-intelsubterfuge, kernel updates15:48
subterfugegentoo-intel: so /boot should be remounted before any updates15:49
gentoo-intelsubterfuge, but other than that its fine. a lot of people have /boot on seperate partition and unmount it anyway15:49
gentoo-intelsubterfuge, you can do, but if its needed the updates will prob fail anyway it shouldnt break anything15:49
giggleshmmm odd ... i cant find any mention of the KP15:50

ComradeHaz`Hi all, anyone know what might be causing my samba share for my home dir to be limited to one client at a time?15:54
dori922if a client losses they're computer(hdd dies or w/e) and they have stored data on an sftp with rsa authentication, can they're stored data still be accessed without their .priv key? *still doesnt understand RSA*15:54
nuclearwormhello , anyone knows if is there an userscripts channel?15:55
hmekhqin: pressing either button doesn't stop it. tapping the touchpad makes the pointer freeze for a moment, but then once it goes back to normal, the jiggling resumes15:55
qindori922: "they're" ?15:56
qinhmekh: It is propably bug, you updated?15:56
hmekhi downloaded it two days ago, so it must be updated15:56
gigglesdori922, yes you can ... the sftp will fall back to a password in the absence of rsa keys15:56
dori922giggles: ah :P thanks15:57
gigglesno problem .. i had the same problem with my server when i redid my phone15:57

laananI think no15:59
A_Jhey all, quick question. How to i Restart Windows X15:59
dori922giggles:  doesnt that remove the reason for RSA keys though? (to increase security by removing passwords)15:59
dlynesworknuclearworm, userscripts for what application?15:59
qinhmekh: "jumpy cursor" gave 3 different bug in 3 top search results, what is your machine?15:59
mbeierlA_J: "Windows" X?  you mean just the X server?  "sudo service gdm restart" should do it15:59

qin!synapticks | hmekh16:00
dlynesworkdori922, no...the client falls back to using clear text passwords, not the server16:00

qinhmekh: right ;)16:00
laananI will try again....any other 'fixes' out there?16:00
A_Jmbeierl: thank you16:01
mbeierldori922: unless the files were encrypted with the key, the files should still be accessible to the system administrator of the sftp server, regardless of the authentication algorithm...16:01
Pumpkin-dlyneswork: http://packages.ubuntu.com/ should help.16:01
sipiordlyneswork: xv is quite old…probably best to look at other options. plus, i think the author may still charge for it? hard to believe, but...16:01
Pumpkin-but I've no idea what xv is16:02
gigglesmbeierl, thank you for the better answer .. :) mine was quite underinformed16:02
hacckersudo apt-get install xubuntu-desktop will get rid of unity and install xfce?16:02
hmekhqin: link your search?16:02
dlynesworksipior, yeah...it's just my favorite image indexer...is there another tool that does a similar job, and that's fairly lightweight?16:02
xanguahaccker: no, just install xfce16:02
sipiorPumpkin-: a very old image display and manipulation program. i imagine the gimp beats in just about every way nowadays, but it was quite popular in the 90's.16:02
hacckerxangua: it will load xfce by default right?16:03
dlynesworksipior, I just want to generate some thumbnails of images in certain directories, and find the image sizes, so that I can determine what images suit my purposes for a given project16:03
xanguahaccker: select what you want from your login screen16:03
sipiordlyneswork: ImageMagick sounds like a good fit. or the GIMP.16:03
dlynesworksipior, and I dont' want to create an album in the process16:03
dlynesworksipior, ImageMagick has a standalone viewer?16:04
dr_williskde at one time had a feature to make html/image thumbnail pages.. :) not seen that feature in ages... heh.16:04
sipiordlyneswork: it does, yep.16:04
dlynesworksipior, Gimp has something similar with a plugin, but I couldn't view multiple thumbnails at once16:04
dori922thanks all :P just another quick q. i selected samba server when i was installing my Ubuntu server, do i need to do other configureation? (i have a few samba guides to follow already just not sure which point the pre-installed samba is at)16:05
dlynesworksipior, what's the tool called from imagemagick, then?16:05
qinhmekh: http://goo.gl/Ofaa4 and http://goo.gl/AdQRY16:05
sipiordlyneswork: the display tool is just "display". there's an entire set, but the most useful are probably "convert", "identify" and "display".16:06
Pumpkin-some googling turned up how to build it from source, but ugh. http://www.ulich.org/hints/xv_ubuntu.html. Couple of years out of date, hopefully will still work for you. YMMV etc.16:06
dlynesworksipior, thanks16:07
nuclearwormanyone uses google enhanced black script for greasemonkey? do you started to have a problem with the color of the searched words? i mean if the searched word are black as the background and one cannot see them?16:08
dlynesworkPumpkin-, thanks....seems imagemagick doesn't do thumbnail previews of multiple images at once16:09
mbeierlgiggles: np.  I thought he might need to be re-assured that regardless, the file content was still there even if the RSA key was a hard requirement at the sftp server :)16:09
rumpe1dlyneswork, sure it does http://www.imagemagick.org/Usage/thumbnails/16:10
sipiordlyneswork: you know, if you're just looking for thumbnail previews, the nautilus file browser does that just fine.16:10
sipiordlyneswork: nautilus can also hook-in scripts, so you might be able to bend it to your needs.16:11
dlynesworksipior, yeah, but it's a huge heavy beast16:11
Pumpkin-yeah, and more goolging suggets it was at least once shareware (but that page is from 1999). So check the license in the sources.16:11
dlynesworkPumpkin-, yeah, it was shareware16:11
sipiordlyneswork: heavy beast? is that modern speak for "i don't like using it"? :-)16:11
sipiordlyneswork: i mean, you're probably not using this on a computer from 1998, so heavy is a bit of a relative concept.16:12
dlynesworksipior, I'm already low on memory...If I had to use nautilus or evolution, I couldn't do my job16:13
samuelhello guys16:13
dlynesworksipior, Our application that we're developing uses 3.2GB's of RAM, so I've got about 200MB's free to run eclipse16:13
samuelI am trying to run two commands from one .desktop file16:14
sipiordlyneswork: well, fair enough.16:14
samuelsimply: sleep 10; firefox16:14
samuelbut it does not seem to run16:14
dlynesworksipior, and it's way too much work to port the app to 64-bit at the moment16:14
Bogus8Hey, I got a problem with a soft Raid 5, I lost a drive and now it just shows the remaining 3 (of 4) drives as "spares" in /proc/mdstat.  How can I make this raid active again?16:16
dlynesworkPumpkin-, thanks muchly...I haven't been able to find anything quite as useful as the visual schnauzer anywhere else :016:16
misaqBogus8: do you mean you lost one partition?16:16
Bogus8misaq: nope... whole drive is dead, doesn't even show in bios.16:17
JamesMRhttp://paste.ubuntu.com/688434/ Is there any easy solution to that?16:17
misaqBogus8:  that's bad. I one had a research on RAID in university. but I don't know much of soft RAID16:17
Bogus8misaq: well, this is what the raid 5 is for.  If one drive goes down then I should be able to keep rolling.  But the whole system froze and then when I finally got it back up the raid isn't assembled any longer.16:18
misaqBogus8:  do you use ubuntu?16:19
Bogus8misaq: yep, ubuntu server... I forget the version... might be 8 or 916:20
sipiorBogus8: can you pastebin the output of mdadm -D?16:20
dnameHello. Such is the problem. When you download the file to your computer, changes the size of the file. Proftpd server. Filezilla client. In what may be the problem?16:21

sipiorBogus8: and mdadm -q?16:21
dnameFile with the extension *. bat16:21
misaqBogus8:  I think you can  go through the reinstallation with the setup disk until you come to the stage of partitioning. maybe you can repair your raid there. do you think this will be good?16:22
sipiorBogus8: sorry, -Q16:22
Bogus8sipior: basically the same.16:22

Escherialhey, are there any alternatives to unity that still provide the same amount of vertical space? i love the fact that i only have one menu bar rather than two bars, but the rest of it is a little difficult to use and occasionally buggy16:33
Escherialalso, something that'll solve this issue with popup information panels (especially in eclipse) extending into the "dead space" under my primary monitor and across monitor boundaries would be nice16:34
dr_willisEscherial:  theres global menu  packages that do that menu in the main bar feature.16:34
dr_willisEscherial:  but ive not used them in ages.. personally i dont like the global menu16:35
Escherialdr_willis: you're referring to packages for specific programs that allow them to use the global menu bar for unity?16:35
Escherialyeah, the global menu is odd, but the savings on screen real estate are significant...16:35
dr_willisthere were tools that did the same thing as the global menu befor unity even came out16:35

sipiorBogus8: yeah, i know the feeling...16:40
Bogus8sipior: I finally learned to take notes when building/configuring a server so I can repeate it. :)16:40

sipiorBogus8: it should only need to be assembled for that information; not sure why it won't query properly.16:51
iamgenii-around, the chown command will change the group of every file/dir. and I have some dirs there with other groups. then is it ok to execute that command?16:51
mexiathats not from the bar it apears when i open preferences and only disappear when u change user16:51
Bogus8sipior: it assembled16:51
ModusPwnenstheadmin: Is there a way to keep all of my software? I don't want to lose any of the things I installed :(16:51

ikoniar000t: can you disable the onboard in the bios ?18:34
r000tikonia: I can make it not the primary, but that makes it enter a reboot loop where it does not even get past GRUB18:35
in0culayes I think here is the log, THANK YOU, let you knoe18:35
ikoniar000t: the video card should not change the booting at all,18:35
SIFTUr000t: you wont to use the onboard or the nvidia.. did you try blackisting the module you didnt want18:35
ikoniar000t: the only thing it should/could change would be the display18:35
ikoniar000t: the machine should still boot18:35
r000tSIFTU: how do I do that without risking permanent damage to the install?18:36
r000tikonia: if I make the nvidia the primary, it gets to grub, spits out a few lines, then POSTS, then enters grub, spits out a few lines, then POSTS, etc18:36
ikoniar000t: that suggests a hardware issue18:36
SIFTUr000t: oh, so it doesnt even load the kernel18:36
ikoniar000t: either a failure or an incompatability with the intel one at the same time18:36

ikoniar000t: that's just display issues, I'm more concerned by the fact that it won't boot with the nvidia card in18:37
SIFTUr000t: confused.. its it loading the kernel and getting to grub?18:37
ikoniar000t: the display issue is easy to fix18:37
ikoniaSIFTU: grub is before the kernel18:37
SIFTUr000t: just remove /etc/X11/xorg.conf18:38
itsSIFtU, I'm past all that :P18:38
SIFTUikonia: um I know.. but he was talking about GDM18:38

B0g4r7goltoof, "copy from trash" does not make a lot of sense really.  The fact that you are receiving an i/o error is in no way connected with the items being copied residing "in the trash".18:47

zykotick9_goltoof, does "dmesg" list a bunch of I/O errors?  If so, I'd start backing up whatever you can off that drive.18:50
=== sevith is now known as Sevith
vachowhat is a good way of transfering files from a FTP to another bypassing my own computer?18:50
Sevithvacho, Ftp...?...18:51
B0g4r7goltoof, you can use something like ddrescue to copy all of the readable areas of the file and replace the damaged pieces with zeros.18:51
vachoSevith, ...18:51
kuruI have a weird problem where when I do a tail -f /var/log/xxx it shows parts of it and then tells me there is no space left on device18:51
goltoofzykotick9_:  you mean my entire system??  it was only vbox that was making it freeze, system runs fine18:51
kuruwhich device is it referring to? I have 22gb left on the hdd18:51
Sevithvacho, What do you mean you want to transfer files but bypass your computer? That doesnt make sense to me explain? :/ Maybe Im missing something18:51
faustisch"faustisch is not in the sudoers file.  This incident will be reported." what do I do? what is the root password?18:52
kuruand everything is mounted on /  so there aren't any weird partitions going on18:52
SevithI have a problem. When I boot my indicator applet (Complete) gets broken and my wireless wont show up, therefore i cannot see the networks around or connect to anything? Anyone heard of this? is there another application that I can use to connect to wifi? Preferable cmd line but GUI apps will work too...Doesnt really matter to me I guess...18:52
zykotick9_goltoof, "system runs fine" right now, but if you're getting I/O errors, it suggests problems with your hard drive.18:52
B0g4r7vacho, I recall the program "FlashFXP" having that capability...18:52
goltoofzykotick9_:  only one i/o error from attempting to copy in dmesg18:52
kuruanyone help?18:52
zykotick9_goltoof, so it's likely that where that file is located on the HD, had issues.  Good luck.18:52
B0g4r7However, I don't know about running FlashFXP on a linux system...18:52
goltoofzykotick9_:  what tool do i use to check integrity of the whole disk?18:53
Picikuru: Can you pastebin the output of 'df -h'  ?18:53
B0g4r7goltoof, I would recommend using "badblocks" for that job.18:53
goltoofi'll just dump the corrupt vm18:53
goltoofB0g4r7:  ah yes tht's the one18:53
faustischsudo sucks ass, I'm moving to debian, ubuntu ain't got mail either18:53
w30vacho, scp can copy from any computer to another but you need ssh and ssh permissions on both computers18:53
zykotick9_goltoof, look into "smart" tools, to verify the physical drive -- it could just be a filesystem issue, in which case fsck18:53
urlin2ukuru, are you going by what the manufacturer says the disc size or actual?18:54
kurupici, http://pastebin.com/c9jWS25q18:54
SevithI have a problem. When I boot my indicator applet (Complete) gets broken and my wireless wont show up, therefore i cannot see the networks around or connect to anything? Anyone heard of this? is there another application that I can use to connect to wifi? Preferable cmd line but GUI apps will work too...Doesnt really matter to me I guess...18:54
Picifaustisch: Mind your language here please.18:54
faustischPici, what are you? a pentecostal priest?18:54
kuruurlin2u, I'm saying, this really doesn't look like I'm out of space18:54
krzyhoohello gurus18:54
krzyhoogot a problem18:54
vachow30, I have ssh on both18:55

KlunkHi everyone, I am having a problem with my sound on Natty. I have an on-board sound card and a graphics card with HDMI output. Sound worked fine with the onboard card until I decided to try HDMI and now I get no sound at all. I have tried all combinations of output in the sound preferences and tried connecting the speakers to different outputs. I want to get the onboard sound working and I am happy to remove the HDMI capability as I will never be connect18:55
Klunking to the TV again. Thanks for any help18:55
urlin2ukuru, look at the disc with gparted or the disk manager.18:56
Picikuru: That shouldn't cause any issues.  Does your log say out of disk space, or is it tail itself that is giving you the error message?18:56
kuruurlin2u, why?18:56
kurupici, I can't tail any log files, so it's hard to tell18:56
uns0b1llhow would i find all rar's and extract them into differnt folde on ubuntu18:56
SevithNo one can help me then I'm assuming.18:57
krzyhooany experts here on installing from USB-drive??18:57
kurutail: cannot watch `/var/log/syslog': No space left on device18:57
zykotick9_kuru, perhaps boot a livecd and free up some space18:58
kuruzykotick9_, I would have to be OUT of space first to free some18:58
zykotick9_kuru, and how to you interpret the message "No space left on device" exactly?19:00
Picikuru: Looks like this is a bug in tail.  It should be giving you a message about inotify: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/coreutils/+bug/70095819:00
ubottuLaunchpad bug 700958 in coreutils (Ubuntu) "tail -f gives misleading error message when inotify limit is reached" [Low,Triaged]19:00
B0g4r7tail reports out of space?  That's pretty weird.  It shouldn't normally be writing anything.19:00
urlin2uSevith, what is the release your running?19:00
goltoofany way to check for badblocks while drive is mounted?19:01
rasusto@goltoof fsck19:01
kuruzybotick9, how do you interpret this then? http://pastebin.com/c9jWS25q19:01
Sevithurlin2u, 11.04 classic mode. I wonder if maybe the drivers are mucking up during boot? The card's an Advanced Centrino N 620019:01
zykotick9_kuru, ummm, so it's a tail bug, interesting.  Sorry, my bad.19:01
Picikuru: You'd need to raise the max_user_watches level of inotify:  check current using: sudo sysctl fs.inotify.max_user_watches    and increase using: sudo sysctl -w fs.inotify.max_user_watches=1638419:02
B0g4r7kuru, what command are you typing exactly when that error occurs?19:02
urlin2ugoltoof, on the HD?19:02
rasusto@goltoof my bad, for bad sectors use chdsk19:02
B0g4r7goltoof, yes, you can preform a read-only test on your hard drive while partitions on it are mounted.19:03
Sevithurlin2u, Any ideas?19:03
=== steve__ is now known as sbur
B0g4r7goltoof, sudo badblocks -vv /dev/sda19:03
B0g4r7or similar19:03
Sevithkuru, sudo  rm -rf shall free some space -.- (JK dont do that it was a joke but somone will flame me)19:03
urlin2uSevith, I see stuff on the web but boot indicator I have no idea what that is.19:03
goltoofB0g4r7:  would it be better to check from livedisk?19:04
Sevithurlin2u, Its just an app indicator on my panel that i can connect to wireless with ease...but half the time when I boot it doesnt pop up. and wont pop up19:04
rasusto@Sevith isnt that the command for a directory listing?19:04
B0g4r7goltoof, I don't see any reason why that would be better.  You could though.19:04
Sevithrasusto, rm -rf? ....Sure...19:04
goltoof.03% done... this will be a while19:04
urlin2uSevith, thats a third party eh?19:05
Sevithurlin2u, Nope. Came with ubuntu its the Indicator Applet Complete.19:05
w30Sevith, no...no... some idiot will cut and paste that!!19:05
Sevithurlin2u, Shows all the stuff that needs your "attention"19:05
Sevithw30, I know I said it was a joke but if they think its a dir listing then sure. do it. hah :( JK i have a horrible sense of humor19:05
urlin2uSevith, have you tweaked compiz?19:06
goltoofB0g4r7:  so it could do read/write test..19:06
B0g4r7goltoof, Well, there is that.  Be aware that the write/read test is destructive.  It will erase anything on the device beng tested.19:06
Sevithurlin2u, Weird. Actualy. Compiz mucked my computer up so bad when i upgraded to 11.04 with unity. I had to unistall it. I cant even reinstall and have compiz work correctly.19:06
goltoofB0g4r7:  oic19:06
krzyhooanyone had problem with installing from USB??19:06
urlin2uSevith, tyope metacity --replace in the terminal, removing compiz was not a good move.19:07
Sevithkrzyhoo, Do you mean your having issues booting into the USB?19:07
carloskhangman no abre19:07
Sevithurlin2u, I didnt think compiz was too critical? :( f*xr. Should I reinstall? or what?19:08
w30Sevith, that command should have a 3 day waiting peroid19:08
krzyhooSevith: let me describe. bought a fresh lenovo x121e subnotebook. Am trying to install form usb but i fail. Created a USB stick with unetbooting. On my desktopt it boots fine (with unetbootin menu etc.) on my x121e instead of unetbootin menu grub starts and after a while everything hangs...19:08
urlin2uSevith, not sure really, compiz is actually part of unity the classic as well I suspect.19:08
=== Vampire0_ is now known as Vampire0
=== KaiSforza_ is now known as KaiSforza
sevithurlin2u, wow metacity --replace did all sorts of craziness19:12
sevithurlin2u, it was pretty awesome19:12
krzyhooso sevith : any clues?19:13
sevithkrzyhoo, Can you boot into live mode without installing with the USB?19:14
urlin2usevith, did it help or hurt?19:15
CodeOmegaPrimeVamps-Win7 : It worked like a charm GRUB2 installed nicely and found windows 719:15
krzyhoosevith: what do you mean? have no cd, so usb ist pretty much the onlz option19:16
Klunknobody got any idea about my sound problem?19:16
sevithkrzyhoo, Thats what I mean. Have you installed it onto the USB or is this what you want? To install onto the USB?19:17
sourabhwhat typeof problem19:17
=== ipso is now known as vrfinside
Klunksound has stopped working since I tried the hdmi output,19:17
sevithurlin2u, No go. Froze me up. Im reinstalling compiz and gonna do a few tweaks it might help if now I guess ill have to manually muck with it everytime or something19:17
sourabhhey my touch pad is not working some body help me..19:17
krzyhoosevith: no, hava a bootbale usb and want it on my laptop19:18
urlin2usevith, you can set compiz to default I would assume even on a reinstall, you want the cube is that it?19:18
sevithurlin2u, Dont really care about the cube or anything too visually appealing. I just want my wireless to not break everytime I boot. hah19:19
_cbIf I have an XP virtual box on an Ubuntu Machine I should be able to use LTSP or No Machine to run it via thin client, correct?19:19
urlin2usevith, that would be nice. :D19:19
sevithkrzyhoo, If you have Ubuntu installed onto the USB Already cant you just boot into the live version and install that way?19:19
ubottuTo replicate your packages selection on another machine (or restore it if re-installing), you can type « aptitude  --display-format '%p' search '?installed!?automatic' > ~/my-packages », move the file "my-packages" to the other machine, and there type « sudo xargs aptitude --schedule-only install < my-packages ; sudo aptitude install » - See also !automate19:19
sevithurlin2u, Ill figure this out :( But im having issues with unresolved dependencies when attempting to install compiz. Even manually installed the dependencies and i still get the error. Says something about enabling all the repositories but they are all enabled.19:20
piupiumbraDoes anyone know a detailled description of ubuntus software-center? Concerning up 2 date and detailed informations how a game could be purchased, which payment methods could be used (paypal ...), if I'll get a personalised deb:// for sources.list ... I'm running Kubuntu and so I can't test it by myself. https://wiki.ubuntu.com/SoftwareCenter contains many future options so I don't know what it is atm.19:20
B0g4r7_cb, use ltsp in what manner?19:20
_cbto run the virtual machine since it would be an app running on the server19:21
sevithgotto reboot well see how badly this breaks things :(19:22
B0g4r7_cb, I would think that would work.  I don't see why VirtualBox would not behave like any other X11 app.19:22
B0g4r7_cb, I believe VirtualBox also has some provisions for "serving" the vm via VNC that you might want to explore.19:23
Dori922hey, im following this guide for chrooting sftp: http://shapeshed.com/journal/chroot_sftp_users_on_ubuntu_intrepid/                The problem is its not working for me, SSH is blocked which is good and i can SFTP into the user, but the user can still browse thehigher up directories19:23
_cbB8g4r7 wow that would be a very inexpensive way of doing what MS terminal servers or Citrix do. (Granted I don't have the admin functionality of Citrix but for a small operation, who cares)19:23
wunderkinhello, i'm trying to upgrade a xen guest from 2.6.32 to 2.6.35, it was using xen blockfront and xvd device, but on 2.6.35 that is not showing up, i tried adding the module to the ramdisk but it isn't adding it.. is it not available on 2.6.35? it works on sd device but we have software that depends on xvd device.. is it better to use xvd device, if i can't, is there some way to alias it?  i was trying to in modprobe conf but i couldn't get it19:24
B0g4r7_cb, yeah, I would like to explore something like that, but without "client machines" even in the picture.  I envision one box with lots of video cards, ram and CPUs that has 12 (or more) sets of keyboard/mouse/display directly attached, to make 12 "stations".19:26
B0g4r7You can purchase HDMI and USB cables up to 50ft long...19:27
_cbB8g4r7 in the old days they called that a mainframe ;)19:28
B0g4r7Yeah, heh.19:28
B0g4r7Kinda like in the old days communication happened over digital lines (telegraph).  After moving to an analog system for a long time, we're back to digital once again.19:29
_cbI envision more of a server running multiple virtual machines and where you can access them via LTSP or No Machine any time, from anywhere, on any device19:29
PupenoAny ideas why Ubuntu can't connect to a wifi created by macosx? all our android devices have no problem.19:30
B0g4r7That's probably relatively easily doable.  You'll need plenty of fast storage, ram, etc to make for a good user experience.19:30
tomodachiPupeno: probably wifi driver problem. Have you tried making an open wifi network with the mac?19:30
genii-aroundB0g4r7: Have you checked out multiseat setups for X ?19:31
B0g4r7genii-around, Not yet.  My envisioned project is little more than a vision right now.19:31
genii-aroundB0g4r7: eg: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/MultiseatX19:31
Pupenotomodachi: no, let me see.19:31
B0g4r7Well that looks like just what I had in mind.19:32
w30_cb, that could be if Apple, Microsoft, Oracle can be prevented from the land grab concept19:32
_cbB0g4r7 instead of one huge server (single point of failure) I would prefer a multiple, clustered, load balanced servers.19:32
excelsiorHelp! I have a Dell630, and I don't know how to get the wireless working, and I have no access to wired connection. I'm obviously connected on another laptop. Any help?19:33
excelsiorJust installed. I tried plugging into a wired connection but it's a static IP, which I assume prevented me connecting.19:33

=== jvoorhs is now known as jvoorhis
B0g4r7_cb, yeah, there's definitely good things to be said of that kind of a design.  Handy for that is VirtualBox's Teleport feature that can migrate a running VM from one host to another.19:33
_cbB8g4r7 you can migrate a vm from one host to another. Wow that would be so cool. If a server starts to malfunction just migrate al the VM's to a working server?19:35
genii-aroundexcelsior: Is it dualboot to Windows?19:36
guntbertB0g4r7: _cb: are you certain that your convo is on topic here?19:36
B0g4r7_cb, that's what the documentation seems to imply.  I imagine there could be a few tricky details to deal with.19:36
KafferCan anyone tell me why I can only boot sometimes in ubuntu. It stall with a black screen19:37
B0g4r7guntbert, not that certain, no.19:37

When i go back and try to sudo apt-get install cimple-ccsm it still says i need those packages E broken packages? WTF?!20:10

h00ksevith: sudo apt-get update, try that before you install simple-ccsm20:11
sevithhal nvm Idk.20:11

Jordan_Usevith: Can you pastebin the output of "sudo apt-get install simple-ccsm"?20:12
sevithWell it IS complaining about a version but when i install them it says im up-to-date with the newest version and should work hold on. ill pastebin it20:12
andrew_How can I get GNOME's network manager to function with my network connections? I have an active connection and have set up another one in the network manager, but it still says "device not managed"20:13
sevithJordan_U, h00k , http://pastebin.com/2ptx45eX20:13
sevithBut i KNOW those are in the repositores. I just installed them from the repos.20:14
h00ksevith: what version are you on?20:14
sevithh00k, 11.0420:14
sevithI even just updated my entire sources.list and STILL have the same issue.20:15
=== andrew_ is now known as Polah
sevithh00k, Really it makes no sense.20:16
wildbatPolah, likly you have entry in /etc/network/interfaces, remove the affected devices from there20:16
Kaffersevith> Change your server to i diffrent country20:16
tank___cleam or delete all your repo data then apt-get update to redownload it20:16
KafferThat solved my problem20:16
sevithtank___, Did that.20:17
sevithKaffer, Where can i change the country at..Synaptic settings or something?20:17
tank___yea under repository20:17
plummerbHello folks.  I need help getting SNMP setup and configured.  Would that be here or another channel?20:17
=== war10ck_ is now known as nix10ck
sevithK Ill try but. I for some reason dont think it will do much but ill try20:18
Kaffersevith> Go into software-centre     sources ---select diffrent country20:18
cfeddeplummerb: more than just installing the packages?20:18
w30Kaffer, good point! mine too.20:18
plummerbYes, configuring access control, setting it up so I can use Firewall Builder's network discovery feature.20:19
w30Kaffer, and days later swithed back and all was fine.20:19
sevithI hate computers sometimes.20:20
cfeddeplummerb: there are several reasonable hits just googling for ubuntu snmpd.20:20
Kafferw30> Mine too, I think servers are updating at that time or something20:20
Bipulcan any one help me i cant able to connect my pendrive in my ubuntu10.1020:20
ikoniaBipul: what happens when you plug it in20:21
KafferBipul> Does it work in Windows?20:21
cfeddeplummerb: they mostly degenerate into: apt-get install snmpd snmp snmp-mibs-downloader, and then fixing /etc/snmp/snmpd.conf and /etc/snmp.conf20:21
Bipulikonia,  i can't see the pendrive icon or folder20:21
Dylan2236Is anyone here using BackTrack 4 R2?20:21
plummerb<cfede> Yes, I have Googled a LOT.  I have all the snmp manuals printed out and I've read through them but they don't really explain HOW to configure it correctly.20:21
executionistwhen making a pppoe connection in ubuntu, where are the Vpi/Vci settings?20:21
ikoniaDylan2236: the people in #backtrack-linux can support you20:21
Dylan2236Thank you.20:22
cfeddeplummerb: the operative word here is "correctly"20:22
ikoniaBipul: look in /var/log/messages do you see an entry when you plug the drive in ?20:22
cfeddeplummerb: by default the snmp agent will answer to v2c requrests with community string "public"20:22
plummerbYes, correctly.  The manuals give many of the arguments and directives but don't really explain hot to use them or what they do.20:22
cfeddeplummerb: the comments in /etc/snmpd.conf are also reasonably helpful.  But there is so much policy going on that it is tough to know what is right for any given site.20:23
Bipulikonia,  http://pastebin.com/psEusjkT20:23
KafferIf I make a Complete backup with Remastersys will it work on other PC's20:24
ikoniaBipul: is this on a virtual machine ?20:24
cfeddeplummerb: the easiest way to get started is to read through the comments in /etc/snmpd.conf and set the community string to something other than public.20:24
plummerb<cfedde> Well, here is an example that I am having trouble with.  When  Firewall Builder attempts to fetch the ARP table from the server it gets the error, Failed to fetch ARP table from : SNMPSession: error: End of MIB20:25
cfeddeplummerb: then try to talk to the agent using "snmpwalk -v2c -c public"20:25
bafiliusI'm trying to find a great console I was using. It dropped down like guake but you could split the screen like with terminator. It had a lot of keybindings too. Anyone know what I'm talking about?20:25
Bipulno ubuntu is on my desktop20:25
Bipulyes but i do have installed vmware20:25
ikoniaBipul: ok, so the vbox stuff is not on this machine20:25
cfeddeplummerb: ah! does the agent respond to simple requests?20:26
executionisthelp plz, when making a pppoe connection in ubuntu, where are the Vpi/Vci settings?20:26
Bipulyes i do have vbox installed20:26
ikoniaBipul: look at the errors on /dev/sda1 - it's getting remounted, what's going on with that ?20:26
Gallo1what's up all ?20:26
KafferBipul> Is your USB ports working?20:26
KafferBipul> If you plug in a cellphone or a other USB device does it pick it up?20:27
plummerb<cfedde> Yes.  I get a response from snmpwalk -c public -v1
ikoniaBipul: plug the usb drive in and show me the output of "sudo fdisk -l"20:27
Gallo1Can anyone running bt help with "iwconfig wlan0 essid "<name_of_router>" key "<encryption_key>" ----> Error for wireless request "Set Encode" (8b2a)?20:27

Steristhow do i set an applet to run as root?20:28
plummerb<cfedde> Yep, from a client system I get standard response to this, snmpwalk -c public -v1
guntbertSterist: why do you want that?20:29
Bipulikonia, http://pastebin.com/vqbFcAEq20:29
Steristguntbert i have a temp monitor applet that complains about not being root20:30

ikoniaBipul: ok, so it doesn't see the pen drive at all, either the drive is dead or your usb ports are having an issue, I don't see any errors on usb in your syslog though20:30
usr13Sterist: an init script.20:30
Gallo1no bots ?20:30
usr13Sterist: Or sudo crontab -e20:30
ikoniaGallo1: the bot is ubottu - it's reponded to you 2 times20:30
motophreakeranyone know how to make a live usb drive and it not ask to install or boot live20:30
Gallo1file bot ?20:30
Steristusr13 i dont know what to make of that command... are you asking what that returns?20:31
ikoniaGallo1: file bot ? what are you talking about20:31
Bipuli think driver has an issue what to do ?20:31
cfeddeplummerb: then it seems like the agent is configred properly.20:31
ikoniaBipul: I don't20:31
Gallo1was asking if there was a file bot is all20:31
ikoniaGallo1: I have no idea what a file bot is20:31
Gallo1like for guides and such20:31
cfeddeplummerb: do you get symbolic oid in the responses? or just a list of dotted numbers?20:31
usr13motophreaker: http://www.xpud.org/20:31
motophreakerthanks usr1320:32
ikoniaBipul: I don't think it's an issue as a.) it's a usb disk, there isn't really a driver b.) there is no usb errors in the log c.) there is no usb event in the log to show a device being even plugged in20:32
usr13Sterist: Answering your question.20:32
usr13Sterist: But would have to know exactly what you want to do to give more specific answer.20:32
Gallo1kk, I'ma noob trying to switch to linux,  so yeah20:32
DTSuserI;m back20:33
ikoniaGallo1: if you're using backtrack try the channel #backtrack-linux20:33
Gallo1aight thanks, thought that was based off ubuntu anyways though20:34
plummerb<cfedde> Here is what I get.  http://pastebin.com/0xxki4su20:34
ikoniaGallo1: it is, but it's different, hence why we don't support it here20:34
motophreakerusr13: do you know of ubuntu live usb without it asking to install everytime?20:34
muneebis it OK to have Ubuntu and Debian share same '/home' ?20:34
MonkeyDustGallo1: start here, with this pretty girl http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2qR591lh5Ow20:34
cfeddeplummerb: pastebin is blocked from where I'm sitting.  go figure.20:34
Gallo1fair enough thanx a bunch20:34
plummerbWell that sucks.20:35
ikoniaMonkeyDust: please don't post pointless videos like that20:35
MonkeyDustikonia: it was a hint20:35
cfeddeplummerb: when you run "snmpwalk -Of -v1 -cpublic your.host.name | grep ipNetToPhysicalTable" should be the arp table20:36
plummerb<cfedde> sent it to you direct.20:37
Steristusr13 it's a hardware sensors applet20:38
plummerb<cfedde> No response from that command.20:38
Steristusr13 complains about not being root when trying to read hdd temp20:38
plummerb<cfedde> I need to compile my MIB's?20:39
cfeddeplummerb: if you want the symbolic values.20:40
cfeddethe numeric oid are all that the remote manager cares about.20:41
cfeddebut it looks like your list is truncated at just the system table.20:41
alkafoomotophreaker: ok20:44
motophreakerI want to make a live usb that skips the screen asking to try ubuntu or install ubuntu20:44
motophreakerdoes anyone know how to bypass that screen? Would I need to rebuild an ISO and remove that as a feature?20:45
tsaknorrismoto use alternative iso and make script there?20:45
cfeddeplummerb: in /etc/snmp/snmpd.conf the line that starts "rocommunity" decides what is visible with community string "public"20:46
alkafoomotophreaker: there's probably a delay value in a conf for whatever it is you're using to create the image20:46
alkafoomotophreaker: you could change that before or after20:46
SlapshotHi I'm running 10.04 server on a headless box and up until now I had no problems. I rebooted the machine and now I cant access it through vnc or ssh but my router states that it is active. Can someone help me out with this problem?20:47
motophreakerthe one I am asking about is the actual GTK screen. Not the terminal GRUB prompt... Does this make sence?20:47
=== fenre__ is now known as fenre
plummerb<cfedde> I setup my conf file with just the basics.  Community access is this:  rocommunity  public default .
metalfan_where can i look at the ubuntu kernel config that is currently running?20:48
cfeddeplummerb: if you make a line "view plummerb included .1.3.6" then "rocommunity plummerb default -V plummerb"  you'll get the full tree if you use plummerb as the communtity string.20:48
alkafoomotophreaker: semantics20:48
ikoniametalfan_: what do you mean look at it, what aspect of it ?20:48
alkafooSlapshot: make sure sshd is running20:48
metalfan_if the sctp option is included in the kernel or not20:48
cfeddeplummerb: you'll also have to restart snmpd for the above to take effect.20:49
alkafoometalfan_: if there is any sanity in the world, zcat /proc/config.gz20:49
ikoniayou'll find it in the config.gz in your /boot directoy20:49
Slapshotalkfafoo I believe it runs on start up. I also dont think its the problem I can seem to ftp to the box or through any webui I have setup.20:49
metalfan_netstat says:   netstat: no support for `AF INET (tcp)' on this system.                   and the manpage for netstat says that the sctp kernel modul is needed20:49
metalfan_alkafoo, theres n
