computerxI'm a fairly advanced bash scripter, I just forgot about the path environment, I'll call php with the full path and that should fix it, thanks jrib00:00
wolfe213_pn: I swear I just saw libvte python in there when I was looking through emulators earlier00:00
jribcomputerx: could be nohup as well00:00
JasonGriffeeSIFTU: now line 4 has issue00:00
jribcomputerx: if you have an mta, you should get mail from cron when it fails.  If you don't want an mta and the script is still not running correctly, add a redirection to the end of your crontab line so you can view the output00:01
wolfe213_pn: meh, nope.. guess not.. heh.. they got it for ruby not python.00:01
computerxjrib: Really? Won't it just log to wherever's necessary? Well, I'll just add signal handling to the PHP script if it still doesn't work. No biggie.00:01
pnyeah00:01
pni have been up and down the synaptic00:01
computerxjrib: I removed the mta due to "other issues", so yeah, I'll add the redirect. Thanks again00:01
wolfe213_pn: I'm a bit curious what you are planning with that..00:02
pni cant run terminal or terminator00:02
petesteris there an easy way to have my computer automaticly update twitter with my public ip?00:02
pnsome how python modelus calling the windows for that program00:02
a111yes pestilent00:03
a111curl -u yourusername:yourpassword -d status="Your Message Here" http://twitter.com/statuses/update.xml00:03
computerxjrib: I'm also using cd $(dirname $0) - could dirname not be in the path?00:03
computerxjrib: It's in the same location as php, so yeah, that'll break it too00:04
wolfe213_pn: that sounds strange.. are you perhaps having your shell set to python instead of bash or dash?00:04
wolfe213_heh00:04
wolfe213_I mean even that wouldnt do it00:04
pnno its bash00:04
wolfe213_I see no reason you need a python binding for libvte to get a terminal00:04
jribcomputerx: you could just update PATH in your crontab00:04
wolfe213_no part of the terminal in ubuntu, the shell, or anything in between involves python00:05
computerxjrib: That's just far too sensible ;)00:05
pnbut i think terminal and terminator and also other GUI forms of calling the shell depends on that python modulous in libvte00:05
wolfe213_the terminal points to gnome-terminal (standard ubuntu desktop) which is written in c using gtk3 and libvte but there is no python involved at all00:06
wolfe213_terminator on the other hand is entirely written in python by the look of it00:07
computerxjrib: Can I make cron think it's on start without restarting, to test this?00:08
wolfe213_and it depends on python-vte which voila is the python vte module00:08
wolfe213_which explains why I didnt find it because I was looking for libvte00:08
jribcomputerx: I'm not sure, you could try restarting cron and see00:08
MasterOfMinutiaIs anyone familiar with changing outgoing packet TTL's on 11.04?00:08
computerxjrib: I did, didn't work00:08
NathanWWdoes anyone know Is it posible to setup kerrighed to be disk bootable insted of pxe?00:09
computerxjrib: I'll trace the rc.d/init,d quickly. Thanks again00:09
pni have to use the terminal in Geany to make commands to the shell00:09
noahk11How do i properly install ubuntu/xubuntu to a partition on a external drive that i can actually boot to?00:10
urlin2uNathanWW, not Ubuntu you might try #linux00:11
noahk11me?00:11
computerxnoahk11: I guess that all depends if grub can see you external drive00:11
urlin2unoahk11, use the custo instal=something other point grun at the external.00:11
computerxnoahk11: If it can, it should be trivial00:11
urlin2ucustom/install/grub*00:12
noahk11I know the generall install process i just HATE grub00:12
noahk11to much tinkering00:12
urlin2unoahk11, it is fairly easy you just have to point grub to the external mbr00:13
petestertwitter no longer supports cURL .. .. any ideas of alternatives for auto-updating my public ip?00:13
urlin2unoahk11, you can unplug all other drives and install as well.00:13
pnany solution00:13
noahk11Umm i cant really remove my internal drive00:14
noahk11Whitch drive do i install GRUB to while installing?00:14
urlin2unoahk11, you have never custom installed?00:15
noahk11I have i just dont know the correct drive00:15
noahk11to install grub 200:15
KM0201how can you hate "grub"?  you se it for less than 5sec on each boot?00:15
urlin2unoahk11, the mbr of the external sudo fdisk -l will tell whcj=h it is or gparted.00:15
urlin2uwhich*00:16
petesterwin hide 200:16
noahk11Well i mean will i install grub to the partion on witch xubuntu is installed or a different drive00:16
geth022alkafoo: I think i screwed up :(00:16
atomicfusionDoes Xvfb ever make use of a graphics card?00:17
spacebug-how can I temporarily change so that I don't need to enter a password? Autologin my user that is. I only want to do this for one reboot to test upstart time then change back to normal again.00:17
urlin2unoahk11, the normal OS grub files will install to the the OS, the grub bootloader goes to the n=mbr= sdX00:17
geth022alkafoo: i added the two lines of code at the bottom of the text file it said to, and now alsamixer is no longer in a directory00:17
urlin2umbr+sdx*00:17
Islamdoes any body know how to remove the wine prog ? I already tried the apt-get remove but it says somthing is already in use. and I really need to remove it. its making alot of errors00:18
urlin2unoahk11, you g=havwe to use the something else option to do this.00:18
scwizardI don't want people with access to server A to be able to access to server B if they don't know the password. I want to write a script on server A that will perform automated tasks on server B. Is this a legimate reason to use a tool like this? http://sourceforge.net/projects/sshpass/00:18
noahk11im not very linux savy so what is n=mbr= sdX00:18
scwizardbecause I'm assuming there's a good reason ssh forces interaction for password authentication00:18
stepnjumphi, I have a new installation here 11.04 and would like to install a HP OfficeJet 4500.  Do I need to download HPLIP?00:19
urlin2unoahk11, miss spells mbr=sdX  X is the drive letter no partition number00:19
Islamis there a force remove command to remove a pack ?00:19
noahk11So i install grub to my main drive but make it point to the partition that has xubuntu on it?00:19
yaerkinscwizard: Depends on what you mean by access.00:20
urlin2unoahk11, you would point grub at the externals mbr the mbr is the sdX of the HD.00:20
G0Rscwizard: why not just use ssh keys?00:20
urlin2unoahk11, this will make the external self booting, I think that is what yo want.00:21
urlin2uyou*00:21
yaerkinscwizard: I'd create a particular user for the purpose and use key authentication.00:21
SetiAmonAnyone know why my screen savers arn't working?graphics and compiz are working00:21
scwizardG0R: "don't want people with access to server A to be able to access to server B if they don't know the password"00:21
scwizardyaerkin: would I have to create the user on server B?00:22
G0Rscwizard: what password?  keys use a passphrase (once, if you setup ssh-agent) that is not the same as the root password00:22
G0Rscwizard: basically passwordless secure access00:23
urlin2uSetiAmon, could you give more details on what you have done to come to this conclusion00:23
wildbatsciwizard it is generally a bad idea to have a user account share with more then 1 user.00:23
scwizardG0R: the passwordless bit is the problem, it would mean that someone with ssh access to server A could ssh to server B from server A00:23
Islamhow can I force remove a pack, every time I use apt-get remove it says its running,00:23
urlin2uSetiAmon, the release and desktop helps as well.00:24
yaerkinscwizard: Root access?00:24
angel56Islam: you need to stop the process first before you try to remove the package00:24
=== Islam is now known as Islam_
Chief-WolfCan anybody recomend a good Adobe After Effects replacement I can use on 11.04?00:24
Islam_I cant stop the process and I dont know how00:24
G0Rscwizard: then i misunderstood.  i thought you wanted secure passwordless access00:24
Islam_its the wine pack to run exe00:24
a|ihow to set env variable HOME for user 'nobody'?00:24
angel56Islam_: you can't have it both ways. Either you can't stop the process, or you don't know how00:25
wildbatIslam_:  wineserver -k  or sudo killall wine00:25
Islam_thanx I'll try it00:25
yaerkinscwizard: You can make that work fine.  The user with ssh access to server A just can't have read permission for the key file.00:26
NathanWWcan anyone recomend Single System Image operating system for clusters that uses ubuntu?00:26
scwizardyaerkin: ahh, I see00:26
Islam_it says its not wine: no process found00:26
scwizardso the result would be that you can only ssh to server B if you're root on server A00:26
urlin2uNathanWW, you mean a clone?00:27
Islam_but when I try to remove it thats what it says : E: Could not get lock /var/lib/dpkg/lock - open (11: Resource temporarily unavailable)00:27
Islam_E: Unable to lock the administration directory (/var/lib/dpkg/), is another process using it?00:27
Chief-WolfIslam_ I can fix it, restart, try the APT again00:27
SIFTUNathanWW: did you ask in #ubuntu-server00:27
Chief-WolfIslam_ That's how I fix it when I mess it up00:27
SetiAmonGnome.basically i set it up in password under admin or what not.everything is set.but when it goes to timeout it just goes to black untill i log back in.i am using twinview dual monitors if that is relativent00:27
Islam_I tried to logout and it didnt work even from the root account00:27
Chief-WolfIslam_ Reboot not Logout00:28
Islam_thanx I'll try it  Chief-Wolf00:28
urlin2uSetiAmon, did you choose a scren saver?00:28
urlin2uscreen*00:28
NathanWWurlin2u: for instance this "Kerrighed is a Single System Image operating system for clusters. Kerrighed offers the view of a unique SMP machine on top of a cluster of standard PCs." however Kerrighed does not support 32bit machines or disk based booting it all has to be done with pxe, and id like to use disk based insted also ill be using some older hardware thats not 64bit00:28
Chief-WolfIslam_ it works for me, but if it doesnt fell so kind to you, come back in and I'm sure we c- and he left00:28
urlin2uNathanWW, this is ubuntu.00:29
NathanWWyes Kerrighed runs on ubuntu. as a cluster or way of smp acrost a cluster.. its all relative. i need another way to do what i want using ubuntu and disk based booting on 32bit hardware..00:30
MoonstarHello To All, just wondering if there is an app to format dvd's, I am using ubuntu 11.04.00:30
Chief-WolfSo can anybody tell me some good Motion Tracking software or Editing I can use in Ubuntu 11.0400:30
urlin2uNathanWW, people would help otherwise if they new I think.00:30
SetiAmonyes urlin00:30
angel56Moonstar: you don't format dvd's00:30
urlin2uSetiAmon, not sure really, soory.00:31
scwizardyaerkin: hmm, it assumes that the people we'd give root to server A are the same we'd give some access to server B but I guess that's a fine assumption to make, considering that anyone w/ root ot server A could just install a keylogger and get the ssh password to server B that way00:31
urlin2umoonsrstar for data?00:31
Moonstarangel56, thanks for the reply, even if the dvd is a r/w ?00:32
angel56Moonstar: are you talking about trying to use it as a hard drive?00:32
Gentoo64Moonstar, ubuntu should come with brasero, just click erase disk00:32
Moonstarurlin2u, only for data00:32
bazhanghttps://wiki.edubuntu.org/EasyUbuntuClustering/UbuntuKerrighedClusterGuide NathanWW this may prove relevant00:32
urlin2uMoonstar, yeah brasero can00:32
Gentoo64or are you on about something else00:32
Moonstarthanks, i was going to use the dvd as a back up for the system.00:33
starpwnageHey, i just installed ubuntu server 11.04 with lamp.. Now i want to install a gui and the help thing says 'First you nee to make sure you have enabled Universe and multiverse repositories in /etc/apt/sources.list file'... how do i do that?00:33
starpwnagei can use the comands but it failes to fetch data00:34
noondayhi everyone, people complain about the voice distortion in my Linux version of Skype  but the same microphone has no such distortion in Windows. Any ideas of what to do?00:34
urlin2uMoonstar, use remastersys Single System Image  or you can clone it with clonezilla00:34
pnyes fix it great00:34
urlin2uMoonstar, sorry http://www.geekconnection.org/remastersys/00:35
pnjust installed and upgraded python-vtk and python-vte00:35
Gentoo64starpwnage, why not just install ubuntu desktop00:35
zrzerenatohello00:35
Moonstarurlin2u, thanks, i will have a look at both of these.00:35
zrzerenatocan any body give little hand ?00:35
urlin2uMoonstar, remastersys is pretty cool.00:36
starpwnageGentoo64, if i do that can i still install all the stuff i need for phpmyadmin and have sql databases and all that stuff?00:36
yaerkinscwizard: Anyone with root access to server A can pull the credentials out of the script, no matter what kind of credentials you use.00:36
Gentoo64starpwnage, id assume so yes00:36
zrzerenatoim trying to have , 2 NTFS partitions 1 swap and 2 Ext4 .. in same HD00:36
scwizardyaerkin: well duh, but the idea is that the credentials wouldn't be hardcoded00:36
yaerkinscwizard: One possibility would be to do the automation on server B and push/pull as necessary.00:36
scwizardbut yeah what you proposed makes a lot of sense00:36
scwizardthank you very much for your help00:37
Moonstarurlin2u, just wanted to get things organised in case  something happenned00:37

urlin2uChief-Wolf, yeah you can have OS's on different drives.00:51
hanasakiwhat will show how much network is being used by each program?  the gnome network monitor shows a lot in use and I need to find what program is using it and where it is communicating too00:51

DeLorean731Where would I go for windows MBR help?00:52
urlin2uChief-Wolf, is the 75 gig a slave?00:52
zakidineokay i'll ask again00:52
Gentoo64DeLorean731, ##windows00:52
Chief-WolfUrilin2u, It is the slave, the 250 is the primary, ubuntu is on the 7500:52
zakidinehow can i recover the "user-sound" that disapeared from my gnome bar00:52
DeLorean731thank you00:52
urlin2uChief-Wolf, yo may have problems if you want grub to boot both, I would put both in the master.00:53
urlin2uyou*00:53
Moonstarthanks for your help...hope you all have a good day or evening00:53
starpwnagegentoo64, what part of the text do you want? it mainly has stuff like rx packets :0, trhen with tx00:53
Chief-WolfAh, I'm gonna have to do a Full System Whipe and go BACK to w7 before I put ubuntu back on the 75 than?00:53
starpwnagethen there is interrupt: 40 base  adress 0x600000:53
Gentoo64starpwnage, it should say your local ip like 192.168 etc00:53
redragon_http://fpaste.org/vMIX/00:53
redragon_yaerkin, there is a new paste with ip route output00:53
redragon_wait00:54
redragon_http://fpaste.org/TBNp/00:54
redragon_fpaste doesn't like me sometimes :)00:54
Gentoo64Chief-Wolf, no. if you dont use ubuntu much you can select what drive to boot from when you turn the pc on00:54
urlin2uChief-Wolf, not sure what you mean basically you can't boot with a slave where grub would be in the mbr.00:54
starpwnagegentoo64, the closest thing is 127.0.0.100:54
Gentoo64starpwnage, do you use dhcp? if not then youll need to manually set an address00:54
geth022Hey, is there a dedicated channel for alsa problems?00:54
ninwaIs it possible to get a program's description via apt-get or some similar command without checking it through the ubuntu software center? I may have overlooked, but I've checked apt-get help and man 8 apt-get for any clues.00:54
Chief-Wolfi'm about to reformat with everything on the Master, wish me luck~00:54
urlin2ugeth022, in ubuntu yes00:54
starpwnagegentoo64, i think the installer autometically set up dhcp00:55

calimike20Hi, I am a new user to the distro and am using 11.04. I am trying to get the original terminals to show up. I used to do this in Slackware and Red Hat by escaping out using ctrl-alt F1, then toggling around using the F-keys. Any thoughts?01:02
wolfe213yeah well how was I suppose to know running tasksel and unselecting mythtv would uninstall everything01:02
islam__wolfe213: you can do every thing easily by asking those marvilas ppl here01:02
urlin2uJusticeZero, go to the wine ppa and make sure the key is correct and your apt/get sources.list ois correct.01:02
JusticeZeroI have no idea what signature goes to wine, and nothing said *wine* anywhere.01:02
Gentoo64calimike20, should be the same ctrl alt + f101:03
wolfe213I kinda figured it would only remove the mythtv stuff and leave the standard ubuntu base and desktop01:03
wenexxhey there01:03
starpwnagei still cant ping anything :(01:03
Gentoo64starpwnage, did you reoot?01:03
Gentoo64reboot*01:03
yaerkinredragon_: Are you 100% certain that the interface names correspond to the NICs you think they do?01:03
calimike20Gentoo, I can escape out, but I only see a blank black screen01:03
islam__wolfe213: just come here any time and ask the guys here they already helped me with a thousand issues already01:03
calimike20no login prompt.01:03

yaerkinredragon_: You've got 2 interfaces.  Are you absolutely sure that eth0 is the card you think it is?01:04
petesterwhat's the best way to make my computer automatically check it's public ip and then email it or twitter it or whatever?01:04
yaerkin(and vice versa)01:04
redragon_eth0 is working fine01:05
Gentoo64starpwnage, you can bring up / down the net interface but i just reboot after changes01:05
wolfe213islam__: yeah well I'm familiar with the process.. been using debian for like 12 years and I'm linux+ certified01:05
petesteri think curl stopped working like 2 years ago01:05

Gentoo64wolfe213, how did you manage to "uninstall" ubuntu by accident?01:05
geth022Anyone have any idea what i can do to get my output jack working? Toshiba L655D. I can give you my alsa info01:06
Gentoo64starpwnage, maybe you did the net config wrong? does lspci show the network card?01:06
wolfe213Gentoo64: uh cause in debian 1) there is no mythtv in tasksel, and 2) if there was it would not uinstall everything down to the tasksel program itself just by unchecking it.. heh01:06
starpwnagegentoo64, http://pastebin.com/Rw61J4Ep01:06
JusticeZeroSeemed to be in order..?01:06
wolfe213nor would it have just restarted gdm while I had the reinstall running in an xterm01:06
lakcajSo nobody is using a gmail notifier right now that actually works?01:06
Gentoo64starpwnage, theres no lo in there01:06
Gentoo64wolfe213, ah ok01:07
wolfe213if I knew that would happen I wouldve had it in screen.. now I gotta start it back up.. in debian it won't restart any services unless you confirm first01:07
JusticeZeroIn any case, sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa did not help it to update, and that's the command line from winehq01:07
starpwnagegentoo64, i left the other stuff in there, its further up, not in that document though01:07
starpwnagegentoo64, and it does show the ethernet controller which is what im using01:07
Gentoo64starpwnage, can you ping the router?01:07
starpwnagegentoo64, if i can find the ip for the router01:08
urlin2uJusticeZero, you have it installed already you can save the key that is in the ppa in a gedit in home and add it to software sources.01:08

Gentoo64i bought an intel nic to replace my onboard 816801:29

Gentoo64not just that, it ocmpletely cuts out forcing a cmos reset01:29
Gentoo64you can install the driver01:29

Gentoo64but good luck with updates01:30
Bustinupdates as in for the driver, or ubuntu itself?01:30
Gentoo64Bustin, you can install it, then replace the card. it uses the 8169 driver01:30
Gentoo64Bustin, kernel updates, and dist upgrades01:31

notverygoodatthihello everyone, I could use some help regarding installing ubuntu studio to dual boot alongside windows 7. I attempted to install from a USB stick using unetbootin , then accidentally passed the stage of installation where you select additional packages without having selected anything. When I went back to that step and selected the packages I wanted, the installation failed, and the syste01:36
notverygoodatthim got stuck in fsck with an error. Since then I've tried reinstalling (wiping the partition in the process) several times, and whenever I get to the step where you select packages it only shows the ones I selected during the first installation, then fails in the same ways. I even reinstalled the installer on the USB drive, to no avail. I have no idea what to do. help please?01:36

scwizarddr_willis: and I want the user that previously had sudo rights to be a regular user01:40
Gentoo64notverygoodatthi, how does it fail?01:40
webservferjust install it next to windows it so much easier01:41

qinscwizard: man adduser; man deluser01:43
notverygoodatthiif I try to complete the installation regardless, when I try to boot ubuntu it runs fsck then gets stuck with an error that I can't remember01:44
scwizardqin: so to change Abe from a user with sudo rights to a user without sudo rights, I need to delete and recreate the user?01:44
notverygoodatthiI think it was "disconnected from plymouth"01:44
Gentoo64scwizard, why dont you want sudo rights?01:44
webservferso I'm locked out of downloading files from firefox and changing things doesn't seem to be going well. permissions is lock me out. it just goes back to setting that were all really given so I'm at a loss01:44
Gentoo64scwizard, has someone else got your password or something?01:45
qinscwizard: I think: sudo deluser Abe admin01:45
qinscwizard: Let me check01:45
scwizardGentoo64: nono, I just want the user that doesn't have sudo rights to be named "Abe"01:45
Gentoo64lol ok01:45

Gentoo64scwizard, they can both have sudo rights you know01:46
scwizardGentoo64: duh, but I want there to exist a user named abe that doesn't have sudo rights01:46
Gentoo64webservfer, do you use apparmor?01:46
qinscwizard: All would be, as Abe: sudo adduser Beth; sudo adduser Beth admin; sudo deluser Abu admin;01:46
scwizardkk01:47
notverygoodatthianyone? I'm at a loss here, I don't even understand how there's any memory stored of those options I selected the first time01:47

Gentoo64ah ok01:56

UbuntuBrandonLol, i've work to do. but i needed a little break.04:52
devishsaturdays04:52
Ubuntusawr[xD]urist_: I thought unity was actually lighter in comparason. (In my own experience). For this reason. Metacity in Ubuntu Classic seems to bloat up once in a while. Getting heavy for some weird reason. It has gotten so bad, it ended up @ well over 400MB of memory and when I saw this in System Monitor, I decided it has gone way too far enough and then immediately killed the program.04:52

teamcoltra:P Yeah but I was debating on how to spell oneiric so I figured to go with ocelot, unless you are referring to the fact that I am asking for advice on a release that isn't out yet05:30
rwwteamcoltra: Yup. #ubuntu is for <= 11.04 right now. See #ubuntu+1.05:31

Petskullum... no07:01
soreauFlannel: How could it possibly break something?07:01

Petskullit's gonna ask me..07:02

LoshkiPetskull: instead of forcing yes, how about using -d instead to do the download unattended, then do the actual install when you're there later....07:02
Petskullok, gonna try it with just -y07:02
Petskullhey- that's not a bad idea07:03
Flannelsoreau, Petskull: from the man page (regarding -y): Automatic yes to prompts; assume "yes" as answer to all prompts and run non-interactively. If an undesirable situation, such as changing a held package, trying to install a unauthenticated package or removing an essential package occurs then apt-get will abort.07:03
Petskullexcept the install is pretty lengthy on its own07:03
MeanEYEMokilok: Well icons are mainly detected by extension and in some cases by content. So rename it. :D07:03
FlannelSo, there's your few examples of things that --force-yes will do, which will not make you a happy camper.07:03
Petskullyeah, that makes senc07:03
Petskulle07:03
MeanEYEMokilok: unless the link is a directory in which case there isn't really anything you can change :D07:04
tsaknorrisso  now i need the answer why to put aliases own folder and not to .bashrc where they will work if you restart the shell etc...07:04
soreauFlannel: Well ISTR -y failing with '-y given without --force-yes. aborting' but that no longer seems to be the case07:04
jtrucksoh god.07:04
jtrucksso.07:04
soreauFlannel: It's been awhile since I used it07:04
tsaknorrisis there secret stuff what i dont know or is he just pointing to that folder under .bashrc?07:04
* soreau sits corrected07:04
MeanEYEtsaknorris: There is no difference in that. It's only a matter of organisation. They'll work either way.07:05
MokilokThe link is for Heroes of Newerth x64 executable. The game opens fine but the link is a plain gray Ubuntu Icon. When I select the Emblems tab in properties the default HoN icons are not one of the selectable options07:05
MeanEYEMokilok: Then you want to create a .desktop file and define icon there.07:05
jtruckswhat do I do with my system when this happens: http://paste.ubuntu.com/696032/07:06
tsaknorrisMeanEYE: hmmm not automaticly. .bashrc is only place atleast in my system? because i opened new shell and it doesnt work there.07:07
MeanEYEjtrucks: Seems to me that your /etc/apt/sources.list file is corrupt or has a bad format. Check that first.07:07
jtruckssources.list: symbolic link to usr/share/man/man1/mactime-sleuthkit.1.gz'07:07
jtrucksseems like a problem there, eh07:07
jtrucks?07:07
jtrucksso how do I fix that and have the upgrade pick up where it left off?07:07
jtrucksis that possible?07:07
MeanEYEjtrucks: sources.list should be a plaintext file.07:08
MeanEYEtsaknorris: Can you give me that link again. I just dropped in without actually looking what that guy said.07:08
tsaknorrishttp://www.howtogeek.com/73768/how-to-use-aliases-to-customize-ubuntu-commands/07:08
Petskullok, my line is this:   sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras vlc mplayer mencoder build-essential xchat frozen-bubble banshee libxine1-ffmpeg xchat-gnome wine openarena stellarium celestia blender bootchart sysv-rc-conf compizconfig-settings-manager emerald barrage hedgewars chromium pacman pingus warzone2100 snes9x-gtk transmission code-blocks geany libsdl1.2-dev libsdl-image1.2-dev libsdl-mixer1.2-dev libsdl-ttf2.0-dev ubuntu-tweak07:09
MeanEYEtsaknorris: Ok, now repeat the question if you don't mind. :) Just to make sure I don't give you an stupid answer.07:10
tsaknorrisMeanEYE: wait. i dont have same name folder i have just .aliases. does it really have to be same name .bash_aliases?07:10
Petskullhey- what's the name of the ubuntu-tweak package?07:11
Petskulldid it change?07:11
jtrucksMeanEYE: where can I find a correct copy of the sources.list file? I assume my original is no longer correct, which it copied to sources.list.distUpgrade.07:11
urlin2uPetskull, you have to add the ppa07:11
rwwPetskull: ubuntu-tweak isn't in Ubuntu's repositories and isn't supported here.07:11
Petskulloh... I know what happened07:11
PetskullI added it, but I didn't update my cache07:11
MeanEYEjtrucks: Your upgrade failed?07:12
jtrucksMeanEYE: yes.07:12
MeanEYEtsaknorris: It's not a folder, it's a plain text file.07:12
jtrucksthat paste was the output of the failure notice :(07:13
tsaknorrisMeanEYE: yeah i ment that :D sorry my folder is just text file, but still can you get it to work?07:13
Farghgood morning07:13
LoshkiPetskull: you forgot the -y ....07:13
jtrucksso first I need to get the correct file. then I have to figure out how to restart this process (hopefully where it left off)07:13
Petskull"Need to get 822 MB of archives."... Jeez, that's gonna take days..07:14
MeanEYEjtrucks: Then original should have .distUpgrade appended. Before renaming check if the original is ok. Do an update first before upgrading!07:14
Farghanyone here wanna help me with fixing apt ?07:14
MeanEYEtsaknorris: Give me a moment please.07:14
PetskullLoshki, I know, I just wanted to make sure all the packages were good07:14
* jtrucks got 409MB earlier in about 4 min.07:14
tsaknorrisMeanEYE: ok, maybe easiest way is to make line to .bashrc what points to that own alias file. hmm but that it would work without .bashrc is weird :D07:15
Farghwhen installing any package i get the following message : E: File does not exist: /usr/share/cli-common/packages.d/policy.2.6.gtk-dotnet.installcligac07:15
Farghanyone has an idea ?07:16
CoreyFargh: Yeah, hang on...07:16
Farghdpkg: error processing libgtk2.0-cil (--remove):07:16
urlin2uFargh, can you run a update?07:16
Farghupdate yes07:16
MeanEYEtsaknorris: tsaknorris: Ok. Inside of your .bashrc you have something that looks like `if [ -f ~/.bash_aliases ]; then`. That's the line that loads the .bash_aliases file. You can change it to whatever you want. I'd suggest reading http://stefaanlippens.net/my_bashrc_aliases_profile_and_other_stuff as it has some nice explanations and examples.07:17
Farghapt-get -f install  <-- fails07:17
CoreyFargh: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=166631207:17
Petskull21hours... this is almost a moot point..07:17
Farghdoesnt work Corey ... tried that already07:17
tsaknorrisMeanEYE: thanks :)  im just confused coz i made that .bash_aliases and it didnt still work :D lol wait i will check everything twice and thank you :)07:18
MeanEYEjtrucks: If the .distUpgrade file is Ok, meaning it's a plain text file with a bunch of lines starting with deb and deb-src... All you need to do is rename existing souces.list to something like sources.list.invalid and rename .distUpgrade file to original file name. Do apt-get update and upgrade. Then you can just restart distribution upgrade without problems.07:18
MeanEYEtsaknorris: Don't mention it. If you still have problems let me know.07:18
jtrucksMeanEYE: oh, cool. I'll try that.07:20
MeanEYEjtrucks: Just don't remove any files. Renaming them is enough. Just in case you need to revert something back.07:20
Petskullgetting rid of openarena and warzone kicks it down to 'just' 411MB which should about halve the ETA07:20
jtrucksyeah, I copied them.07:21
Petskullok, leaving this working- thanks, guys!07:21
jtrucksthe problem turns out that sources.list was, inexplicably, a link to some man page gz file.07:21
LoshkiMeanEYE: tsaknorris: my 10.04 .bashrc doesn't contain any such statement, and my bash man page doesn't say anything about .bash_aliases. What version are you guys running?07:21
CoreyI have ubuntu in a weird half-configured state.  Hangs indefinitely when removing gdm.07:22
CoreyHow do I forcibly remove it?07:22
Petskullthanks guys!!07:22
* Petskull *gone07:22
MeanEYELoshki: am on Mint at the moment. It's really a distro specific thing. URL I gave describes how to set aliases in external file. So, in my .bashrc I have few alises and I don't have .bash_aliases file. :D07:23
MeanEYECorey: Do you have a different DM? Like LightDM?07:23
CoreyMeanEYE: It's headless, should have nothing. :-)07:24
MeanEYECorey: Did you try aptitude?07:24
CoreyMeanEYE: Yes.07:24
CoreyHangs forever on Removing gdm ...07:25
jtrucksMeanEYE: so I do: apt-get update; apt-get upgrade; do-release-upgrade07:25
MeanEYEjtrucks: Yes. If I remember correctly do-release-upgrade is a python script so it directly depends on a state of python interpretter. Hence the reason for upgrade first.07:25
rabbi1can't i skype from pidign ?07:25
rabbi1* can't i skype from pidgin ?07:25
jtrucksso, will this have to do everything all over again?07:25
MeanEYErabbi1: No, skype is a proprietary code. No OSS there.07:26
LoshkiMeanEYE: but the web page claims to be for ubuntu, so it would be nice if it worked on the current ubuntu LTS, or if not, a note to that effect might be less confusing.07:26
MeanEYEjtrucks: Except for downloading already downloaded files. If you want that cleaned you have to apt-get clean07:26
rabbi1MeanEYE: thx, :(07:26
MeanEYErabbi1: Google talk can be called using pidgin... with video/audio.07:26
MeanEYErabbi1: And to be honest my advice would be to get rid of Skype. Spyware is not something we need in Linux community. :D07:27
jtrucksMeanEYE: so if all the packages are alrady installed, it will skip the install? This was at the very end of the upgrade process.07:27
rabbi1MeanEYE: yeah, i am using it... :)07:27
hellofooOSS?07:27
rabbi1MeanEYE: can't help for few client communications07:27
jtruckshellofoo: Open Source Software07:27
MeanEYELoshki: Ubuntu can change from version to version so don't rely too much on it. If you don't see that file executing add that line (source file)07:28
MeanEYErabbi1: I feel your paing although everyone has a GMail account today and Google+ being open you have a nice free conferencing software which is not closed and not forced down your throat.07:28
MeanEYEjtrucks: Hm, yeah. I think. With previous upgrade, did it download everything and crashed after that or it didn't even get the chance to download them ?07:29
LoshkiMeanEYE: thanks, I'll take care of it...07:30
rabbi1MeanEYE: can's ask them to use  :) .07:30
MeanEYELoshki: Basically if [ -f file ] means if file exists. The line `source ~/.bash_aliases` means include this file.07:30
MeanEYErabbi1: I know. Sadly not all people are flexible.07:31
jtrucksMeanEYE: it downloded everything, went through the upgrade process through installation, then was doing the 'setting up' series of stuff, then it said it was searching for obsolete software, then it had the crash in the paste I first posted.07:31
jtrucksMeanEYE: so, should I s/hardy/lucid/ in sources.list and then do update && upgrade?07:31
rabbi1Every time i run this update manager, google-chrome-stable loads about 20 MB. what will be there to update so much in chrome every time ?07:31
MeanEYEjtrucks: Hm, weird. Then .distUpgrade file is not valid anymore. But am not exactly sure what happened.07:31

shivenstupid question time; i've managed to get wpa_supplicant set up, but i have no idea on how to make it automatically connect on ubuntu; any pointers? (10.4)07:32
ikoniashiven: there is a tick box in gnome-network-manager to say "connect automatically"07:32
jtrucksMeanEYE: so, I will s/hardy/lucid/ in sources.list, then apt-get update; apt-get upgrade; perhaps?07:32
MeanEYEjtrucks: You could try renming sources.list file and try upgrading again in hope everything will go through this time, but I never had upgrade crash at that point.07:33
rabbi1MeanEYE: yeah? but for 20 MB file for upgrade, every time ... sounds weired07:33
ikoniajtrucks: no07:33

ikoniashiven: why are you not using a gui ?07:33
jtrucksikonia: I was following that.07:33
MeanEYErabbi1: In windows they are doing the diff download. In linux due to packaging rules they have to give full package every time. It's not that much of a download for benefit of security.07:33
shivenikonia: development (server) system. Not interested in the waste of resources07:33
jtrucksit broke.07:33
shivenit just needs wifi, and ssh really07:33
ikoniashiven: then you have to set everything up in the interfaces file so that when the interface is brought up, all the settings are there, which will force it to connect07:34
ikoniajtrucks: define "it broke"07:34
rabbi1MeanEYE: or i can skip 1 or 2 upgrades in btwn07:34
MeanEYErabbi1: You can but there's no reason to do so.07:34
ikoniarabbi1: if an update is offered, it's wise to take it07:34
shivenikonia: any idea where the interfaces file is? i have no issue setting it up, its just everything is in different places on ubuntu07:35

ikoniajtrucks: honestly, don't know due to how your system is07:58

s0126hcan you even set root password then?08:10
MeanEYEs0126h: Yes you can, but shouldn't08:11
ikonias0126h: you can but it's unwise and un-needed08:11
llutz_s0126h: no need to do it08:11
MeanEYEs0126h: That's why `sudo` is there.08:11

jtrucksexactly.08:11
ikonias0126h: if you don't know, you shouldn't do it08:12
ikonias0126h: why do you want to do that ?08:12

=== Abhijit is now known as `Abhijit
s0126hbecause i don't like this "sudo nonsense"08:12
MeanEYEs0126h: I agree with ikonia. You really don't need root password. It will only hinder your security.08:12
MeanEYEs0126h: Even if you do set it, a lot of applications won't run if you are logged in as root so there's no sense in doing that.08:12
IamTryingI am getting this error when building from source. e.g: configure: error: no gstreamer-plugins-base-0.10 >= 0.10.35.1 (GStreamer Base Plugins) found  configure failed08:13
s0126hmeaneye why would application not run08:13
ikonias0126h: then use "sudo -i" and be root08:13
jtrucksdoes anyone recall off the top of their head how to delete/unlink a file by inode?08:13
ikoniaMeanEYE: that's not true08:13
s0126hwhat is the difference between "su root"  and "sudo -i"08:13
ikoniajtrucks: ls -li to get then inode,08:13
ikonias0126h: sudo -i sets the environment correctly08:13
jtrucksikonia: yeah, I got that:)08:13
MeanEYEikonia: Hm, yeah those that do run with sudo, will work either way. I though he wants to be logged in as root all the time.08:14
jtrucksoh, find might help me do this.08:14
s0126hsudo is confusing08:14
llutz_jtrucks: find ... -inum -exec rm...08:14
ikoniaMeanEYE: that won't change applications from working/not working08:14
ikoniajtrucks: hang on, I'll get the rm option08:14
ikonias0126h: in what respect08:14
s0126hwhy does sudo -i  work  when i don't even know root password08:14
ikonias0126h: because you know your own sudo password08:15
MeanEYEikonia: am pretty sure some of them didn't want to work :/ oh well... probably a minority08:15
ikonias0126h: and your user is authorized08:15
ikoniaMeanEYE: no, you are incorrect08:15
jtruckshmm. find . -inum 9193214 -exec rm {} \; didn't work08:15
s0126hikonia i don't like that system:  i like system where i have to know root password to get super priviledegt08:15
jtruckshere's the real problem: -????????? ? ? ? ?                ? GalleryRepositoryIndex.class08:15
jtrucksnice, eh?08:15
llutz_jtrucks: fsck08:16
ikonias0126h: you don't like typing sudo -i, but you so like typing su - to be root08:16
ikonias0126h: is that really what you're saying08:16
jtrucksllutz_: I was hoping to avoid that... as this is the root partition.08:16
s0126hikonia  yes sort of ;  because to do  "su root" you have to know root password08:16
ikonias0126h: what does it matter if you know the root password ?08:16
s0126hi just prefer that system08:17
ikonias0126h: then use it, good luck.08:17
llutz_jtrucks: stupid not to do. you cannot know all the stuff being broken08:17
Farghguys, whats the solution when you get No apport report written because MaxReports is reached already ?08:17
s0126hwhat is the difference between "su -"  and "su root"08:17
MeanEYEs0126h: In that case, sudo -i  and then passwd.08:17
ikonias0126h: one sets the environment, the other sets the id08:17
s0126hikonia i dont' get it08:17
ikoniaMeanEYE: please stop talking if you can't follow the discussion08:17
ikonias0126h: possibly why you should be using sudo then08:18
s0126hmeaneye and whose password do i type after "sudo -i"08:18
MeanEYEikonia: wasn't his question how to change root password? You are really in a bad mood today.08:18
ikonias0126h: you know what you're doing - so either do it or don't08:18
ikoniaMeanEYE: no. Please follow the conversation08:18
llutz_setting root-password isn't supported here and this should be EOD08:19
ikoniallutz_: yes, you're correct.08:19
ActionParsnips0126h: very little but it will fail as no root pass is set, or should be set08:19
s0126hllutz  that's silly08:19
bazhangs0126h, lets move on08:19
llutz_s0126h: if you don't agree with ubuntu-style, don't use it08:19
MeanEYEikonia: I did, but whatever. Not going to argue because of that.08:19
ActionParsnips0126h: after: sudo -i   type you users password you log in with08:20
s0126hllutz  is "sudo -i" ubuntu style?  other distro does not use this style?08:20
IamTryingI am getting this error when building from source. e.g: configure: error: no gstreamer-plugins-base-0.10 >= 0.10.35.1 (GStreamer Base Plugins) found  configure failed08:20
ryoohkiis there a procedure to fix ubuntu software center?  i already tried "apt-get purge software-center ; apt-get install software-center"08:20
llutz_!sudo | s0126h08:20
ubottus0126h: sudo is a command to run command-line programs with superuser privileges ("root") (also see !cli). Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo for more information. For graphical applications see !gksu (GNOME, Xfce), or !kdesudo (KDE). If you're unable to execute commands with sudo see: http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/fixsudo08:20
jtrucksmy worry on this systems is this: if I take it to single user and fsck it, will it even boot since it never finished the upgrade process...08:20
s0126hActionParsnip  i see;  i don't comprehend that system nor i want to use it08:20
ikoniajtrucks: it's worth (if you can) fo an fsck on the file system - but set -n so it doesn't auto fix, that way you can see the errors08:20
ikonias0126h: don't use it then,08:21
s0126hActionParsnip  because all you doing is retyping the password you logged in with08:21
ikonias0126h: read the documentation ubottu has provided08:21
jtrucksikonia: without rebooting to single user you mean? it might be wort the risk now...08:21
ActionParsnips0126h: the default is to keep root locked down for security, when you need exta access, simply prepend the command with sudo and use your password to authenticate, this gives greater control of whom can use admin commands08:21
ikoniajtrucks: nah, don't do it on a mounted file system08:22
ikoniajtrucks: sorry, I see what you're saying that you don't want to boot at all08:22
ActionParsnips0126h: it also stops users from running stuf like irc clients and web browsers as root, which is a really bad idea08:22
jtrucksI don't understand how linux kernels and userland stuff works well enough to know whether I'll remotely have a working system, however, it did update grub and I tink install the new kernel, too...08:23
s0126hactionparsnip why would that be better security;  the user is only re typing their own password to get root access08:23
ActionParsnips0126h: there are plenty of good reasons why ubuntu is set as it is.08:23
ActionParsnips0126h: the user must be in the 'admin' group to be able to use sudo08:23
bazhangs0126h, lets move on, you have repeated enough. check the links.08:23
ikoniajtrucks: it maybe worth booting from a livecd (if you have the guts) and try to resolve it from that point if it won't boot08:23
ActionParsnips0126h: so users whom are not may attempt to use sudo but they will be denied access08:23
ikoniajtrucks: I'm sure (I think) we can get this booting again if you have a problem08:24
qins0126h: Rootless linux is quite common, it is not only Ubuntu...08:24

llutz_iceroot: means" no more options/parameter for this process known"08:37
llutz_iceroot: so only the processname is shown in []08:39
icerootllutz_: so that means if i start "df" it would be shown as [/bin/df] and if i use "df -h" it would be shown as "/bin/df -f"08:39
jtrucksokay, mysql works now.08:40
jtrucksnow I can get back to figuring out what's left of the upgrade and/or whether it's safe to reboot08:40
ikoniajtrucks: you're getting there,08:40
llutz_iceroot: no, afaik those processes mainly are kernel-/system-procs where the kernel has no info how it was called exactly. user-procs like "df" are known with path and all08:40
icerootllutz_: ah ok, thank you08:41
llutz_iceroot: you'd better do some googling about it ;)08:41
icerootllutz_: hard with "[]"08:41

ikoniaPereee: what you've descbribed sounds fine. however you need to make sure that your /boot partition is on the drive it's trying to boot from and that your system is looking at /boot on the drive rather than the raid array09:07
Someguy2anyways09:07
ActionParsnipSomeguy2: then you will be misunderstood09:07

tularisshould i have a special version of natty for amd cpu ?09:09
ikoniatularis: no09:09
Pereeeikonia: ok. Sounds good then.. In the end of the installation i get a question to were i want to install grub.. if i want to install it in the MBR of the first drive or anywhere else. I have tried both but my guess is to /dev/sda1 (that should be my /boot partition)09:09
ActionParsniptularis: no, any will run (except ppc)09:09
ikoniaPereee: no, masterboot record09:09
Someguy2BTW is Ubuntu Ultimate a ilgeal release?09:09

Someguy2It did hang last summer09:11

Someguy2the window that are open is firefox09:11
ikoniaSomeguy2: you're using ubuntu ultimate eddition, ask their support09:11
ikoniaPereee: ok, and it's a raid 10 containing 4 disks ?09:11

dpnuxHi. I am trying to install astah .deb using Ubuntu Software center and it hang. My ubuntu is 10.10 64 bit. I tried to cancel it but no response. What can I do to cancel it?09:12
Someguy2my laptop has Ubuntu 11.04 offical09:12
ikoniaPereee: so, you also have 1 disk with /boot on09:12
ikoniaPereee: is that correct ?09:12
ActionParsnipSomeguy2: Ultimate is offtopic here09:13
Someguy2ok09:13
csenger41i'd need some help with flash games freezes09:13
Someguy2But Ubuntu 11.04 Offcial09:13
Pereeeikonia: no.. i only have four discs im afraid.. And what im trying to do is to have the /boot partition on the first drive and not included in any raid array. Maybe thats not even possible?09:14
csenger41it happens when im moving my cursor and when i stop it, it keeps working again09:14
Someguy2Ubuntu 11.04 offcial did hang on me once and i want to know the reason why09:14
ikoniaPereee: that should be fine, so you have 4 disks, but 1 disk has 2 partitions on,09:14
Pereeeikonia: basically 4 partitions, /boot /(root) /swap and /home. All three except /boot is raid arrays that exist on all four drives09:15
ActionParsnipSomeguy2: Canonical releases are supported here (plus Lubuntu when Oneiric is out)09:15
Pereeeikonia: or should i only do a /boot and a / partition?09:15
ikoniaPereee: you have 1 disk that has 2 partitions on, 1 partition for /boot, the other partition is included in the raid array09:15
tularisActionParsnip: md5 checksum is OK09:16
ActionParsniptularis: sweet, ok so the USB boots. What happens next?09:18
Pereeeikonia: well.. im not sure.. Like this: I start up with 4 empty drives. On all those four i create /swap, /root, /home (and on the first drive a /boot) partition. With the raid "tool" i then create md0, md1 and md2 that is a /swap RAID, /root RAID and /home RAID09:18
tularisActionParsnip: i got a full access to a live session, but on the other hand if i try to install09:18
ikoniaPereee: ok, I think you're a little confused on how it works, I'll try to explain, stop me if you get lost09:18
Pereeeikonia: thanks! I was afraid of that :)09:19
tularisat 2/3 of files copy, the install crash and send me to a frozen command black screen09:19
ActionParsniptularis: is the drive healthy? You can fsck the partition from terminal09:19
ikoniaPereee: you need to create 1 partition on each of the 3 disks in the raid array, that are "full disks", mark the partitions as "raid", you need to create 1 primary partition on 1 disk for /boot and then a partition that is also raid, mark that partition as raid09:19
tularisActionParsnip: i launched the drive check from the boot manager09:20
ikoniaPereee: you then make meta devices for each file system (apart from boot) out of the 4 raid partitioned disks09:20
tularisdisk was healthy09:20
z3ro3xI tried to format a flash drive to fat32 and mistakenly clicked on a 500 GB hard drive with lots of data I'd like to get backigional file system was ext4.  Gparted shows it as fat32.  I tried to use testdisk to restore it and it told me to reboot after the changes.  But after the reboot gparted still shows it as fat32.  What's the deal? The or09:20
Pereeeikonia: ok, im with you.09:21
z3ro3xOps.  I mean "Original file system was ext4"  Sorry, typo.09:21
ikoniaPereee: ok, or you can make one meta device, and partition it09:21
tularisi'll try the install another time09:21
tularisand i'll copy you the frozen command screen09:21
ikoniaPereee: eiter way will work fine, as long as you have 1 partition that is totally excluded from the raid setup.09:21
ikoniaPereee: does that help at all ?09:22
Pereeeikonia: Yes i think i get it.. What i think confuse me is what i should do with /swap and /root partitions?09:22
n4dspguess its a tough question on the evolution mail problem09:22
Pereeeikonia: i don't need to care about that?09:23
ikoniaPereee: swap and root can be on the raid partition, no problems there09:23
ikoniaPereee: it's only /boot that needs to be %100 away from raid09:23
Pereeeikonia: ok, but i should create them after i have created the "raid"09:23
ikoniaPereee: it doesn't matter onthe order of creation, as long as the end result is /boot - seperate partition, everthing else = raid09:24
ikoniaPereee: it's useful to put /boot at the start of the first disk though09:24
ikoniaPereee: first partition on the first disk.09:24
tularisPanic occured09:25
tularisswitched to text console09:25
Pereeeikonia: sorry if my questions are stupid.. Ok i will try but for me it sounds like i have done exactly that..09:25

Pereeeikonia: im trying to install now so we will se how it goes.. But your recommendation is to write grub to MBR of the first drive?09:28
ActionParsniptularis: it install a desktop OS, just in text mode. There will be a text file or twon on the USB stick you can read, it will tell you the release09:28
Kartagisikonia: could be, I'm not sure. can't check now because the one at work is off09:28
ikoniaPereee: correct, and make sure your bios is set to boot from that device09:28

hudekiWould there be a problem with uninstalling evolution on 10.04?09:59
MAREK_BENC_NetBkudeki: No problem at all10:00
mokilokIs "sudo mount -t smbfs //10.0.0.100/shared_folder/ /media/windows_share -o username=Guest,password=10:00
mokilokthe correct syntax?10:00
MAREK_BENC_NetBkudeki: But if apt-get wants to remove your desktop, you'll need to install aptitude, and run 'aptitiude keep-all'10:01
hudekiand from synaptic?10:01
hudekisame storry?10:01
MAREK_BENC_NetBi think10:01
MAREK_BENC_NetBI haven't used GUIs for installing in years, so IDK10:02
bazhangMAREK_BENC_NetB, that is not correct10:02
MAREK_BENC_NetBWhat?10:02
bazhangMAREK_BENC_NetB, ubuntu-desktop is a meta-package no harm done in removing it10:03
ArthurIs there a way to make a partition in Xubuntu? I installed it on my comp and I want to also install Windows 7, but it forces me to delete the current partition because it has all the space focused on it, any idea :/ ?10:03
distant_voicerunning "gconftool-2 -s /desktop/gnome/url-handlers/gomcmd/command /home/jan/start_gomplayer %s' --type String" doesn't work, it doesn't exit back to the prompt. Does anybody have experience with gconftool-2?10:03
MAREK_BENC_NetBYes, but if it's removed, apt will think all other packages are useless, and will prompt you to delete them with apt-get auto-clean10:04
bazhangMAREK_BENC_NetB, thats not correct10:04
MAREK_BENC_NetBs/auto-clean/auto-remove10:04
distant_voiceArthur, I think in general it's easier to install windows first and then install Ubuntu10:04
ArthurBut I've already installed a lot of things in Linux, distant_voice, isn't there a way to make a new partition using some of the current space in my Linux so I can install there Windows :s ?10:05
distant_voiceArthur, there might be, but it's probably a pain in the ass compared to doing things the other way around. the problem is that windows will break GRUB in the process of uninstalling and if you don't know your way around fixing that it's be  a real hassle10:06
ActionParsnipdistant_voice: http://www.teamliquid.net/forum/viewmessage.php?topic_id=197195&currentpage=10   has some sample commands you can steal10:06
MAREK_BENC_NetBArthur: It's an easy fix, actually.10:06
ActionParsnipdistant_voice: you could put start_gomplayer in /usr/bin instead of $HOME, it's a bit neater10:07
MAREK_BENC_NetBArthur: I can help you with this10:07
MAREK_BENC_NetBArthur: All that happens, is that windows overwrites the Boot sector, so it boots instead of GRUB, which is the Boot loader for Ubuntu10:08
MAREK_BENC_NetBAs long as you have a LiveCD, you can simply fix it10:09
ArthurMAREK_BENC_NetB: Thanks, I once installed Linux when I had Windows 7 and it was easy because it gave me the option of installing it with Windows 7, but Windows 7 only displays me two partitions (since I've got nearly all the GBs focused in one) and it doesn't let me continue the installation, what should I do? I'd install Windows 7, but I have some important things like Skype which were hard to me to install when I started on Linux :/10:09
ArthurSome options I mean.10:09
ActionParsnipArthur: skype is downloadable from the skype site easily10:10
ArthurActionParsnip: I know, but I had some problems finding ways to make the microphone on cam works well.10:11
ArthurWell anyway, it's true, I should install Windows 7 and then use Xubuntu Live CD again, it'll hopefully let me install it with Windows 710:11
MAREK_BENC_NetBArthut: So, what's your current status, you want to install Windows?10:11
ActionParsnipArthur: yeah skype can be a pain to get nice10:11
ActionParsnipArthur: install Windows 7 to a percentage of the drive and you wont need to mess around with resizing partitions10:12

Gentoo64dean, just add them both to the list10:26

soreaudean: I know but do you mean to files in one dvd or two separate files to two separate dvd isos at once?10:27
deanGentoo64, How do I make 2 seperate titles to click on so I can play either?10:27
=== pythonsnake is now known as Python
deanIn convertxtodvd you can put 2 films on one disc and you can choose which film to play10:27
Gentoo64dean, cant remember. theres title options in there10:27
soreaudean: You just make two separate titles and add a file to each IIRC10:27
=== Python is now known as pythonsnake

soreauthought he was a known troll..10:29
ikoniasoreau: no, it was my fault/mistake10:29

soreaudean: It is.. but if you add more than one file to a single title, it will just put them all together without an option to select either10:33
deansoreau, Thats what I was thinking thats why I needed to find out if I added the 2 titles and then 2 files it would put them in the right order if that makes sense I am confusing myself typing lol10:34
Justinfostop: Unknown instance:10:34
soreaudean: Well, you have to select the title you want to add the file to. In your case, you want one file per title10:34

RoDiMuS-XUbuntusawr[xD], I like to customize, I like how Gnome-Shell has extensions that can be written using JavaScript11:36
IdleOnelng: start caring about our channel guidelines.11:37
Ubuntusawr[xD]RoDiMuS-X: As in what terms? is it slow? o_O    In my experience, Unity performed better for me than Gnome 2 (metacity), sometimes, metacity would "bloat" in memory size from time to time. Oftenly, near 100MBs, and ont time, it has gotten to like 400MB of ram :S11:37

Ubuntusawr[xD]Mikey^: Apparently not.11:44
fireprintmikey^ no sir.11:44
Mikey^Mikey^: you can try using wicd11:44
ActionParsnipfireprint: add the boot option: text11:44
pythonsnakewhen will 11.04 support be dropped?11:45
fireprintActionParsnip, i've done that. However when it boots directly from grub into text.. my wifi on the server wont connect. having trouble with wpa.. which works just fine on guimode.11:45
jribpythonsnake: 11.04 + 1.06 = 12.1011:45
fireprinti've had *nix for 3 days now, so sorry if my explaining is a bit off.11:45
Mikey^fireprint: Use wicd11:45
ActionParsnipfireprint: +1 for wicd11:46
fireprintMikey^, oh i can use wicd in termina?11:46
Mikey^It has a commandline connetion utiliy11:46

Martin_it just seems to have issues connecting to anything11:53
Martin_it has 3 network interfaces all setup via a bridged network adapter on my mac11:53
Mikey^fireprint: You should run only one, either wicd or network manager. I think you need to stop and disable network manager first11:54
fireprintah i see. probably due to the fact that im still in gui.. thanks again!11:54

RoDiMuS-XZerpy: on the server side, I look at my httpd logs12:00
Sidewinder1Milossh, Since no one else answered, I'll take a guess; perhaps you need to create the archive first, then split into volumes? Just a guess.12:01
ZerpyRoDiMus-X: That I mean is like, how much requests/s I can get if I have etc. 100 "users" loading the site at same time, like scalability testing12:01
MilosshSidewinder1, nope. I found out it doesn't work with default set of archive types. Works with rar though12:01

Mikey^fireprint: yes, stop the service12:14
Mikey^disable it, so it wont run on boot up12:14
Sidewinder1fireprint, I could be totally wrong and perhaps I didn't understand your original question but, couldn't you just boot into normal GUI, then hit "Ctrl-Alt-F1" to 'blow' GUI and get to command line/12:14

soreautodd_: streamer -f jpeg -o /path/to/image.jpeg then script it to show you the image and do what you want12:28

OerHekssoreau you re-invented cheese :-D12:28
bj0rn2how long does it take from a package version is released until it's available in the repository?12:29
joel135todd_: you can save pictures using mplayer: http://www.infohit.net/blog/post/taking-snapshots-from-a-webcam-under-linux.html12:29
soreautodd_: There is no program to do that. You just have to take the pic, open it to view it and decide if its acceptable then delete and repeat if not etc12:29
xangua!latest | bj0rn212:29
ubottubj0rn2: Packages in Ubuntu may not be the latest. Ubuntu aims for stability, so "latest" may not be a good idea. Post-release updates are only considered if they are fixes for security vulnerabilities, high impact bug fixes, or unintrusive bug fixes with substantial benefit. See also !backports, !sru, and !ppa.12:29
soreaujoel135: nice12:30
joel135todd_: I'd suggest you write a small script12:30
todd_joel: mplayer has the same issue... it takes a picture immediatly, so the person Im taking a pic of is probably 1/2 out of frame, is there a way to get it to wait till the person is in frame?12:30
soreauindeed12:30
soreautodd_: You need to write a script to suit your needs12:30
todd_joel135: This was no problem in windows, :-(12:30
todd_soreu: OK how?12:31
bj0rn2xangua: that's not what I mean, I mean a fix for a package. example gnome-shell 3.1.92-0ubuntu1 was released a few days ago but in repo I get the previous 3.1.90.1-0ubuntu412:31
joel135todd_: make mplayer open a video stream from the camera in a window. when the window is closed, next command will be run. that command should save the image to a filesystem.12:31
xanguabj0rn2: sounds like that is what you mean12:32
soreautodd_: take pic, open it to view, if acceptable, enter y, else enter n and have it delete the image and start at step one12:32
todd_joel135: ICK! really? close the window to take the picture, not real intuitive is it?12:32
joel135todd_: so: display video from device; take picture12:32
bj0rn2xangua: yeah you are right :) but it's in oneiric repo so upgrades are released12:33
joel135todd_: you could write a small application to do it if you don't think it's too much of a waste of time12:33
todd_Come on people, its such a simple thing, a command that will take a picture of something, not just take a picture... there has to be something???12:33

ubuntufriendso the document is you ikonia12:42
MonkeyDustlemme check12:42
soreauubuntufriend: Why do you want to roll your own kernel?12:42
ikoniaubuntufriend: please show me the document you are following that tells me you need to recompile your kernel12:42
ikoniaMonkeyDust: "no, it's not"12:42

joel135todd_: Cheese stores your pictures in a folder called Webcam inside the XDG-Directory set for Pictures (in most distributions its ~/Pictures/Webcam)12:43
ubuntufriendthere exists not a document that tells you or me to recompile my kernel. the only interaction i have had pertaining to the recompiling of kernel comes from a user in this very channel by the name of : ikonia12:43
ikoniaMonkeyDust: you've just suggested he use a technology that's not available currently in the distro he's using and that isn't in production use by any real distros at this time12:43
todd_joel135: really?? let me check that? I did not see that in the man pages, or the info pages12:44
ubuntufriendwho is this ikonia guy why is he booting me12:44
ubuntufriendwhat an asshole12:44
ikoniaubuntufriend: I did not tell you to recompile your kernel12:44
ubuntufriendyou did12:44
ikoniaubuntufriend: I said you have to reboot if you need to compile your kernel12:44
soreauikonia: Kernel kompiling is hard on ubuntu.. why would you suggest that ;)12:44
ubuntufriendyou said i would need to reboot12:44
ubuntufriendto recompile my kernel12:44
larsduesingHmm.. ok.. there is a new source-package for oneiric since yesterday, but no new bin-packages. *wait or compile by myself?12:44

joel135todd_: it's in their faq: http://library.gnome.org/users/cheese/stable/faq.html.en12:45
ikoniaubuntufriend: so I'll ask you one more time, where is the document that said you NEED to compile your kernel12:45
ubuntufriendand i would say one more time12:45
ubuntufriendthere is no such document12:45

alex-ikonia: I have a python script on my website, but it just outputs the script on my website instead of running it13:18

usr13ActionParsnip: But I venture to say "things have changed".13:19
alex-how can i setup apache to do that?13:19
CaternamHi13:19
ikoniaalex-: you'll have to check the apache http documentation on using mod_python (I think it's called) or using python as a cgi script13:19
soreaualex-: Try #httpd13:20
soreauBe careful, it can be pretty strict in there though13:20
Caternami have a vga problem: on live-cd 10.10 i had low res, but it worked fine (GeForce gtx460) - on 11.04 live-cd the resolution goes up, but the screen goes blank every few secs as if the graphiccard resets. So I just wanted to ask where I can read about editing the disc-image, just need to know what I have to edit.13:20
alex-soreau: what do you mean?13:21
soreauCaternam: Most likely a bug in the nvidia driver. Try different settings in nvidia-settings or a different version of the driver13:21
soreauCaternam: Also, try to see if disabling/enabling compiz helps13:21
Caternamit blanks, goes black, then comes back13:21

soreaugulzar: compiz --replace13:23
mlncnLenovo T420, newly installed Ubuntu 11.04 with Unity enabled.  Freezes seemingly at random, every couple of days.  Firefox is usually at the fore and Skype usually running, if i'm looking for scapegoats.  No ctrl-alt-fn-sysreq or any other key combination, including random jamming of keys, breaks me into terminal or anywhere else i can actually do anything.  Recommendations?13:23
xanguagulzar: not much sense in using a 'light desktop' with compiz13:23
mlncnHere is what i've researched so far: http://data.agaric.com/ubuntu-1104-unity-freezing-new-lenovo-thinkpad-42013:24
soreauxangua: compiz is only as heavy as the plugins you enable13:24
soreauxangua: It makes perfect sense13:24
xanguagulzar: you would need minimun besides have compiz installed, install metacity, emerald or kwin13:24
gulzar<xangua> yes but still.. How to do it? That's the challenge...13:24
mlncnwalking me  through / pointing me to docs for getting the log files after a complete system freeze would help a great deal13:24
xanguagulzar: whatever you choose to use in compiz and then run: compiz --replace13:24
soreauxangua: That is simply not true. You do not need kwin nor emerald nor metacity to run compiz13:24
xanguanot a big challenge13:25
Caternamregarding my screen blanking problem, is there anything else I should look on apart from Compiz?13:25
soreauxangua: You got that one right, compiz --replace (but I already told him that)13:25
gulzar<xangua> No dear. Compix in lxde crashed badly. No solution from google. Only knoppix is wotking so far.13:25
xanguasoreau: well you would have compiz withount a windows decorator ;)13:25
soreauxangua: Wrong again. There is gtk-window-decorator13:25
soreauincluded in compiz-gnome package13:26
xanguasoreau: that is metacity...13:26
soreauxangua: wrong.13:26

Sidewinder1Caternam, I'm guessing that 10.10 uses a different driver than 11.04?13:26

auronandace!aptitude | Teh_Lemon13:56
ubottuTeh_Lemon: aptitude is another terminal-based front-end to APT. Like other APT front-ends, it can install/remove packages and their dependencies. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/AptitudeSurvivalGuide13:56

usr13mia158: ... but to tell the truth, even if you have a dual core processor, you really should have a specific need for a 64bit OS before going to the trouble of installing it.  The standard Ubuntu system sure is nice on a dual core processor and you will not see any noticable performance increase in normal desktop use. (In other words, there are only certain instances where you would take full advange of the 64bit OS.)14:32

CluelessPersonActionParsnip,  I have a weird message.  "/dev/sda" contains GPT signatures, indicating that it has a GPT table.  However it does not have a valid fake msdos partition table, as it should.  Perhaps it was corrupted - - possibly by a program that doesn't undersatnd GPT partition tables.  Or perhaps you deleted the GPT table, and are now using an msdos partition table.  Is this a GPT partition table? yes/no?"14:51

Polahge2x: Add their IDs and options to your fstab14:52
CluelessPersonI have clue what it's asking exactly, thus google! What is a GPT partition table?" :p14:52
Nickelhow do i turn the brightness up? i'm looking through system settings and not finding it :X14:53
CluelessPersonActionParsnip, I think it's a yes14:53
CluelessPersonNickel, system -> preferences -> monitors?14:53
mnour_#linuxac14:53
compdocge2x, fstab is the best way14:54
CluelessPersonNickel,  herm, I dunno14:54
rigvedfireprint: not really. are you experiencing a lag right now?14:54
fireprintrigved,  99.3%id.. dunno what that is though,14:54
D_Russis there anyway to disable visual effects without compiz?14:54
NickelCluelessPerson, i see monitor settings, but no brightness controlls14:54
fireprintrigved, well it seems to refrsh every 3 sec. having something called messageb come up once in a while.14:54
CluelessPersonActionParsnip,  Well, I ran your command, and no ext partions are reported, but I hadn't made any yet14:55
CluelessPersonActionParsnip,  The problem is that it's not reporting the 3 partitions I already made on it.14:55
ActionParsnipD_Russ: log off an log into Ubuntu Classic session instead14:55
fireprintrigved, and seeing that this does not happen locally either on this laptop nor on the server.. only from putty. im abit out of ideas hehe14:55
ActionParsnipCluelessPerson: not sure then , very weird14:55

Nickeloh yeah? nice.14:59

ActionParsnipMokilok: run:  kill PID15:00
Stanley00Mokilok: use kill PID15:00
Nickelusr13, lol, i'm not sure what f-key is15:00
fireprintrigved, no not really.. its just when i type, say commands in terminal or whatever.. it all of a sudden stops.. and then returns after 6-7sec.15:00
ActionParsnipMokilok: if it refuses to die and you REALLY want it dead:  kill -9 PID15:00

ActionParsnipMokilok: np man15:02
Nickelusr13, i found a menu i'm looking into o.o15:02
Polahg0rs: Evolution supports the use of GPG keys for signing15:02
rigvedfireprint: you will need to check the internet for any bugs with the version that you are running.15:02
CluelessPersonubuntu's gparted isn't detecting my partitions on my SSD, so I can't install ubuntu.15:03
fireprintrigved, version of putty you mean?15:03
usr13Nickel: I'm also thinking that the keyboard map may not have been set right during install, (but usually, the defaults get it right most every time).15:03
Nickelusr13, o.o apparently it's 100% it seems kinda... dull.15:03
ActionParsnipCluelessPerson: tried updating gparted?15:03
g0rsPolah: it doesn't have inbuilt pgp security decryption features15:03
Nickelusr13, it's set to US lol15:03
CluelessPersonActionParsnip, I haven't, I just downloaded this iso this morning, and I haven't installed ubuntu15:03
usr13Nickel: Yea, but if the FN keys don't work, I don't know what's up with that.15:04
ActionParsnipCluelessPerson: you can update apps in the live environment15:04
fireprintrigved, just been pinging 8.8.8.8 for a while.. no lag. it just appears when it pleases. Oh well.. ill look into putty issues. Thank you kindly sir. Appreciated.15:04
usr13Nickel: Can you turn it down with the FN key combination?15:04
CluelessPersonActionParsnip, I just did sudo apt-get update15:04
CluelessPersonActionParsnip, that correct?15:04
Nickelusr13, what combination?15:04
usr13CluelessPerson: If you are into post-install mode;  You should now do  apt-get upgrade15:05
rigvedfireprint: putty@projects.tartarus.org <-- here. you can send an e-mail to this address, giving details about your session and problems. you could include relevant parts of /var/log/syslog and /var/log/messages.15:05
