Garret_ThorneHey folks, would someone be available to answer a question?  I just recently installed 11.04 and it ran fine until I installed the nVidia driver.  I'm running an 8800GTX, but my card is underpowered - I only have one of the two, six-pin connectors attached.  The card runs fine, albiet at a reduced capacity, in Windows, but Ubuntu refuses to start xwindows now.  Is there any way to force xwin00:34
Garret_Thorneto start and/or get the Linux driver to do as the Windows driver does?  That is, run the card in reduced-capacity?00:34
mw007Garret_Thorne: which nvidia driver are you using?00:36
loquitusofborgI am trying to have a live-booted (off CD) Ubuntu forward all packets from incoming interface eth0 on out to the Internet on eth1 on How do I do that? I tried "echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward" but what else do I have to do to tell it to do this? I can ping stuff on the Internet from the Ubuntu machine so I know the Internet is connected, but I can't seem to get packets to forward from eth0 to eth100:37
Garret_ThorneUbuntu offered me three choices.  One was experimental, stayed away from that one.  the other two were nVidia branded, and I chose the one listed as "Current - recommended."00:37
sean__how do u install a tar.bz2 file? it sounds stupid but idk need help.. u dl the file.. u do tar -xzvf <filename> an then what?00:38
mw007Garret_Thorne: okay, it's not clear which driver you are using exactly. Have you gone through this page: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BinaryDriverHowto/Nvidia00:39
mw007sean__: depends on what the tarball contains. what are you trying to install?00:41
sean__gmote its for cell phones i guess00:42
sean__wanna try something00:42
sean__i alrdy tar -xzvf00:42
sean__now in the folder contains .sh file00:42
sean__do i have to -c it?00:42
sean__or something00:42
ex0sh firlename.sh00:42
mw007sean__: what ex0 said :)00:43
sean__kk ty00:43
Garret_ThorneI've checked that out, and apparently I've replaced Nouveau with what Ubuntu referred to as the recommended, current version.  I can only assume by nVidia's site that that's unified version 275.28, but I can't be positive.  However, what you've linked to also includes guides to setting this driver up, and a forum.  I'll check both out.  Thanks, mw, for your help.00:44
sean__ur tryin to install the normal vid card?00:44
sean__You gotta black list some things, kill x server00:44
mw007np. good luck00:44
sean__and then hit ctrl +alt + f1 for cmd line00:45
sean__Ive dont it before ;x00:45
gchristensenIs there a repository of old packages? I'm looking for one that was available in Dapper, but isn't available after that00:45
sean__Garret_Thorne,  what are u tryin to do install the driver from their website00:45
Garret_ThorneNo, I installed the driver using Ubuntu's update utility, when it mentioned restricted drivers were available... it's a brand-new install.  So after installing the recommended nVidia driver and rebooting, the system won't start xwindows.  It starts at a standard linux text prompt.00:46
sean__service gdm start00:47
Garret_ThorneWhen i "startx," I get an error from nVidia saying the card's underpowered.  Which I know it is, I just need to know if there's a way I can force the driver to run anyway, in a slower or reduced-capacity mode.00:47
mw007gchristensen: which package? name could have changed00:47
sean__Eh desktop computer?00:47
Garret_ThorneYup.  What does gdm do?00:47
sean__well if u start in the linux prompt window it should start the xserver00:48
gchristensenmw007: unlikely, they haven't had a release since 2006. Its called mydns... mydns-common, mydns-mysql00:48
sean__and u should go back to the login screen and stuff00:48
sean__if ur stuck in the linux prompt window00:48
Garret_ThorneGroovy.  Thanks, I'll try that.  Back in a bit.00:49
gchristensenmw007: when I went to http://packages.ubuntu.com/search?keywords=mydns&searchon=names&suite=all&section=all it ultimately took me to a dead download link, pointing to files in this directory: http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/universe/m/mydns/00:50
mw007gchristensen: ahh gotcha. looks like you'd need download from source: http://mydns.bboy.net/download/00:50
gchristensenblast! I was hoping I wouldn't have to build my own .deb :(00:50

Unfortunately the kernel I've downloaded doesn't seem to work, how can I tell if a kernel will work with a specific version of Ubuntu? are there versions of the kernel that specific versions of Ubuntu?03:05

sean__does it come with it auto?03:11
sean__im guessin?03:11
organikscould someone tell me how to start a "screen" session that i can resume later?03:12
aristonSome admin can verify about my question?03:12
qinorganiks: resume, like after reboot?03:12
sammykiwii: are you using unity? check this bug: https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=64339403:13
ubottuGnome bug 643394 in user-interface "Does not fit in 1024 pixels wide screen resolutions, cannot maximize" [Normal,Unconfirmed]03:13
sammyyeah, thanks bot :)03:13
organiksqin can that be done? i just wanted it to be attached after i close the session03:14
sammykiwii: I think most people doing video editing are doing it on a higher screen resolution these days. good luck getting support with this. id add your experience to the bottom of that bug report to confirm the existing report. maybe the developers can do something.03:14
kiwiisammy: nope, gnome03:14
sammykiwii: oh. hrm.03:14
sammykiwii: oh! its not unity specific. just says its worse in unity03:15
axisysfound my answer..03:15
enferexsean__: it means your GPU can perform CUDA operations if it needs to, shouldnt be anything to enable03:15
qinorganiks: After rebbot, no idea, but detach/attach is normal way to deal with screen.03:15
sammycospan: the kernel youve downloaded doesn't seem to work - are you sure the pre-compiled maverick image is made to run on the beagleboard's hardware?03:15
kiwiisammy: ok, thanks. I'll check it out. that would be lame if pitivi dropped support for smaller monitors03:15
organiksqin how do i start a session that i can resume later?03:16
sammykiwii: maybe they're just unaware of how severe the problem is. i'd for sure add your experience to the bug report to at least confirm the other user's experience03:16
cospanorganiks: you can "detach" from a screen sesssion by typing <CTRL> + A D then if you want to list your sessions, you can view them with screen -l ... I forget how to re-attach though03:17
qinorganiks: screen; to detach: Ctrl-A d; to attach: screen -r; man screen or /join #screen03:17
sean__enferex, well  this is  a msi laptop.. and i have a turbo function in it.. i have the disc but its only a windows disc03:17
sean__could i install the drivers for that? or no03:17
sean__its for the cpu + gou03:17
cospansammy: yeah the precompile image with the precomplied kernel works, but I can't find the source for that kernel03:17
sammyanyone have any suggestions about getting audible bells to work from terminal? I dunno what I'm missing.03:18
qinorganiks: Try also: byobu and tmux03:18
organikswow thanks never knew there was a channel just for screen03:18
cospanperhaps I can just work within the beagle board ubuntu and download the kernel source like I would on a normal desktop03:18
sammycospan: what is it exactl youre trying to do? any kernel version should work in ubuntu, and there are some ubuntu/debian tools you can use to compile a custom version of a kernel, complete with debian/ubuntu addons/patches03:19
cospanI want to modify the platform driver in order to send off events when a user presses a button. I know there are ways you can do this in userland but I want to understand how to develop with the kernel03:21
Jubeiguys what can I do if "screensaver" doesn't appear under system settings?03:22
sammycospan: I would honestly suggest talking to the beagleboard folks. they'd probably be super interested in any work that furthers support for their product. look into the instructions for building a custom kernel within debian, though what youd like to do sounds even more low level. you can always cross-compile the kernel on your desktop machine to run on a machine of a different architecture, and then package it up, and load that package in ubu03:23
urlin2uJubei, in other words you can't find it? what release and what desktop? It is there I assume.03:23
sammyas for kernel version, you might want to look into the source packages for the kernel versions available through ubuntu. there shouldn't be a specific version that works or doesn't work.03:24

bzzzzhave xorg.confs been deprecated entirely, or is it just not included by default anymore when X is installed?03:27
sammycospan: good luck03:27
sammytriunity: you should be able to single click the wireless icon near the clock and click 'connection information'03:28
tensorpuddingthey're not included by default because xorg does autodetection and configuration03:28
tensorpuddingbut they're still available as an option03:28
sammytriunity: it'll tell you the speed youre currently connected with, but mind you, that might be lower than the maximum available depending on the quality of the link. sometimes wireless links will drop to a slower speed if the quality is low.03:28
triunitysammy, speed shows 54 Mb/s I guess its G...03:29
dr_willisxorg.conf is used if it exists03:30
triunitysammy, how can i tell if my laptop can handle wireless n?03:30
sammytriunity: you can have some fun with iwconfig and iwspy and iwlist. look into those tools. you can also check the output of 'dmesg' - sometimes wireless negotiation information can be found there -- well, if you run 'lspci' you can find out what type of hardware it is, and google the hardware03:30

SIFTUsammy: ah ok03:54
sammydr_willis: I'll go poking for bugs again.03:54
dr_willisthats a gnome setting sammy03:55
dr_willisi forget where.03:55
SIFTUsammy: Terminal > Edit > Current Profile > Terminal bell03:56
sammydr_willis: which is a gnome setting? :P you can change/check the volume of the alert sound in the sound preferences.03:56
SIFTUsammy: System > Preferences > Sound > System Beep > Enable System Beep03:56
dr_willishoray for SIFTU03:56
SIFTUsammy: I cant verify those as I dont run gnome03:56
sammySIFTU: I dont have a system beep -- ah, yeah I've checked the alert sound, and the settings in both gnome terminal and terminator03:57
dr_willison my phone so i cant look either03:57
sammyhehe sokay. thanks. was hoping someone had come across teh same problem. its probably something easy and simple like usual :D03:57
SIFTUsammy: what about in alsamixer?03:59
sammySIFTU: its not a volume issue, unfortunately. I've disabled earcandy and double checked the alert volume and sound in other X apps. if X is stifling the sound -- OH i think there's a pulseaudio module for x beeping! *checks*03:59
dr_willissammy:  theres always askubuntu.com and the forum search. ;) i imagine otheres have had similee issues04:00
SIFTUsammy: but it could be muted in there.. just brainstorming04:00
magicjoe97236HELLO ALL. I just moved my HD to a machine with Nvidia, and then back to a the old one.  Removed all Nvidia files, rebooted, got a "low graphics mode", used the options there to reconfigure.  Rebooted, got Extra Effects enabled again.  NOW everything is how I want it......problem is, if I reboot, I need to do the above process every time.  Question is then, how do I save my running display config so it will load at boot?  Its per04:01
Pelado29./server irc.ciudad.com.ar04:02
SIFTUmagicjoe97236: you removed /etc/X11/xorg.conf that nvidia made?04:02
magicjoe97236Siftu: ah......no.  So just delete that and it will recreate?04:03
SIFTUmagicjoe97236: yeah if you arnt using nvidia anymore you dont need one (if you are using OSS drivers)04:04
Asad2005Can someone help getting totem airplay plugin to work. I have only succedded once, other times it fails to work do i have to restart a service. I have also started shairport and my iphone see it will but what application on my ubuntu is needed in addition to shairport to run my audio/vedio04:04
magicjoe97236Siftu:  Thanks I'll try that, and reboot......if you don't see me, it worked.  If not, I'll be back.  Thanks again04:04
sammySIFTU, dr_willis: i found a few bug reports, for metacity and compiz. its always the little things that fall through the cracks - apparently is a super common issue.04:04
magicjoe97236SIFTU:  That would also explain why my attempts at 'sudo Xorg -configure' were futile.  I didn't need the file....it was screwing things up!04:06
SIFTUmagicjoe97236: so it worked?04:07
magicjoe97236SIFTU: not sure yet, just deleted file, rebooting now. I will let you know in a minute04:07

Sonarpulsehow can I force it to set the passwd I want, even if it is a "bad one"04:14
IbyssSonarpulse: Make a crazy password. Then make a good password.04:14
IbyssSonarpulse: Do not make it close to your username. Lol.04:14

zetheroothe other day I was searching for something that would allow me to take screenshots and screen captures on my tablet. Search tablified.com and they list one app that "may need rooting of the device" and selling for $0.99 .... not keen ... then search Market and there is nothing which will do this without rooting device and paying ... I don't mind paying somehting ... but not for an app which will not work unless I 'hack' my tablet ... I dunno05:07

rocket16I have a Dell inspiron n4010 and everything works well with ubuntu, except the sound. The sound is definitely working, but the quality and volume are not good. Even if I set it to 100% and set alsamixer to full, the sound is still low. I previously tried installing a realtek audio driver, which totally crashed my sound and forced me reinstall. Any suggestion? :(05:17
rabbi11dr_willis: was using WINXP from vbox, my hdd currupted05:17
zetherooBurnward: sorry, what was this in realtion to?05:17

Burnwardbut a similar idea "jailbreaking" for the i devices was almost made illegal for gay reasons05:19
zetherooBurnward: oh I see05:19
Burnwardthat would be up to you i think05:19
rocket16My audio device is Intel Corporation 5 series/3400 series with High definition btw. I guess installing realtek was a total mess without first checking the device...05:19
zetherooBurnward: but it's not illegal to 'root' an Android device .... right!?05:19
dr_willisrabbi11:  vbox was not to blame i inagine IF you were using a virtual drive05:19
Burnwardzetheroo: not to my knowledge but sooner or later it will be, just wait companies and stuff will say the same thing as apple and sony, copyright blah blah blah and call anyone with root access to their computer a blackhat hacker and come after us05:20
rabbi11dr_willis: creating a virtual drive and then using it is a better option, is what you mean.05:20
Burnwardsony got all pissy when someone posted a video about how to add a new OS to ones PS3 and took him to court, now if he ever does it again he could go to jail05:21
JokesOnYou77Hi all, I just installed giplet in Synaptic but the applet isn't in the "Add to panel" window.  Do I need to restart Gnome panels or something?05:21
dr_willisrabbi11:  thats how yoy do it normally. you should NOT use vbox to access a real physical hd. thw docs warn about that05:22
Burnwardzetheroo: which is incredibly stupid when you consider that since you bought the device you should be able to do with it as you please05:22
JokesOnYou77dr_willis: I missed the beginning of this discussion, but my understanding is that using a VM to access a physical drive/partition as a VMDK is perfectly safe if you know what you're doing05:23
rabbi11dr_willis: ok, may be that was the problem, vbox saves my xp in .vdi format...05:23

JokesOnYou77dr_willis: oh yeah, big time.  Maybe you could answer this for me, if I want to run Win7 from a VMDK while using Ubuntu as my principle system is it safe to access data (e.g. my music) on a shared data partition (probably NTFS) while both OSs are running?05:30
dr_willisthis is ubuntu. ;)05:30

RobbieCrashI've got a freshly built Natty server, that is unable to reach speeds of over 5.5Mb/sec despite being on a gigabit backbone, and registering its connections as gigabit. lshw -c networking shows both as size and capacity as 1Gb. All other devices plugged into that switch function as expected, with between 700 and 800Mb/sec. I have tested the same cables/ports in other servers and speeds are05:35
RobbieCrashfine. I've also tested one of the ubuntu box's NICs in a different server and receive proper speeds as well. Both NICs are set to full auto.05:35

Richie086is this the only ubuntu/linux box on this network or are there others?05:37

RobbieCrashRichie086 it's the only physical Ubuntu box. I've got Solaris, Slackware and RHEL running in VMs on ESX5. All other physical boxes are Windows. My network is split between two switches. Switch A has the Ubuntu box and the VM hosts and is a gigabit switch. It's connected to Switch B. I've tested from the VMs to things behind Switch B, and get 700-800Mbps. Testing between VMs and the ubuntu boxes05:40

glauconanyone here use eeepc?05:41
zetherooBurnward: ha ... tech call came in05:41
JokesOnYou77So it sounds like the best way to do this would be to turn both my Win7 partition and my /data partition into a single VMDK and then share /data from within Windows (for better or worse I still use windows about 60% of the time).  What will this mean in terms of my permission levels on /data from withing Ubuntu?  I currently have the problem where /data is NTFS and doesn't give me full...05:42

JokesOnYou77Burnward: You're making a bootable flash drive, right?  FAT has the most cross-platform support of any filesystem so it's very appealing for using in applications when things like BIOS need to access it, I also think squashfs likes it best, though I might have just made that up...05:48

tapoutBurnward, if you swap, it will be better than a regular drive05:52
Burnwardtapout: why's that?05:52
tapoutI'm running on a ssd and 2GB swap, and none is being used05:52
tapouta flash drive is faster than a regular drive, by far05:52
tapoutthat's what you're asking right, if you use a 4GB swap partition on a ssd vs a regular drive.. no?05:53
Slyddermorning all05:53
Burnwardtapout: yes and no, i have a thumb drive and a super old computer (last one died in a fire) and i was wondering if 4GiB of swap would speed up my computer signifigantly05:54
tablesi'm on "try ubuntu" on the livecd and "free" shows 2G of total ram, after i install will i get the 4G i normally have?05:54
JokesOnYou77Burnward: Well, SWAP is essentially using the HDD for RAM, i.e. virtual memory.  But it's a lot slower than RAM because it's limited by the read/write speed of the disk. In your case i'd say an extra 4GB of SWAP could really help you by allowing you to run more memory-intensive applications and even some slightly improved multi-tasking, but it won't be as dramatic as adding additional real RAM05:54
Slydderwhat's the next LTS version?05:55
Burnwardjokesonyou77: i was afraid of that05:55
tapoutBurnward, ohh... when a machine is swapping, it's doing it to clean out the ram, or it's out of ram and swapping bad... if it's the second .. you're screwed...05:55

nhochthi all07:10
ikoniamekwall: not really as the key is how they authenticate, if it has a password, you'll need to enter it07:10
ikoniamekwall: you can look at things such as the password keeper daemon for example07:10
ikoniamekwall: so you enter the password when you login and it keeps it for all other ssh sessions using those keys07:11

jasonmspllutz_:  -H is default.  Its getting lost when it is sent to standard output since it is being read by the next.  I'll give it a whirl to test, but I don't think that will work.07:34
yaccAny idea why that might happen? ATA port resets, freezes the complete system, and after a minute or so it's all back. The funny part is that it also happens when the port is unused, ...07:35

tablesdoes choosing "use entire disk and set up encrypted lvm" in set up effectively encrypt the whole disk?07:38
ikoniamekwall: a little shameful07:38
yaccfritsch, https://gist.github.com/1250201 <= the funny thing is it happens no matter if there is a SATA hdd connected or not, and basically with the same error messages, the disc LED goes for the whole time full on, the system freezes and that was it.07:39
jasefI was just trying to install Ubuntu with Wubi on my desktop machine, and it extracted everything from the USB stick I ran it from, then tried to download the AMD64 ISO, saying that the installation was the wrong size, apparently it was looking for 11.10, but my USB has 11.04 on it (the wubi was the one that came in the iso)07:39
tablesdoes choosing "use entire disk and set up encrypted lvm" in set up effectively encrypt the whole disk?  has anyone tried this?07:39
fritschtables: yes it does07:39
yaccfritsch, currently I've got an old Laptop hdd on it, I hoped that having something really talk with it would help, but still the freezes.07:39
tablesfritsch: can you put swap in it too?07:39
tablesatleast afterwards?07:40
fritschtables: yes you can07:40
tablesok because i'm reading guides that say use "manual"07:40
yacctables yes, but actually Ubuntu by default encrypts swap with a random key on every boot.07:40
tablesbut i want something easy and effective07:40
tablesah ok07:40
fritschcrypto >= 256 are all effective07:40
fritschbut not that fast possible07:40
nhochthow to learn programming on ubuntu?07:41
alhubaishianyways to make unity side bad just peak alittle bit and not go completely hidden07:41
yacctables, the only issue if you add a second hdd, you'll have to enter your LUKS passphrase twice. Boring if it's always the same, so I usually set it up in a way that dropped me to the initrd prompt, and run a small script of mine that tries a passphrase against all volumes.07:41
jasefAnyone have any ideas about my Wubi issue?07:42
fritschyacc: i decrypt with usb key07:42
fritschyacc: there is no file format on it, just have hidden the key in some raw sectors07:42
fritschyacc: getting them with dd and unlock07:42
fritschyacc: i remove the device afterwards07:42
yaccfritsch, well, I'm not a fan of physical gadgets, I'm one of these guys that stopped carrying a watch because they've got their mobile ;)07:42
nhochthow to learn programming on ubuntu?07:43
fritschyacc: yes, i am same like this - but my girlfriend wanted to boot this computer07:43
fritschyacc: without giving 25 letters password07:43
yaccnhocht, more or less the same as on all other systems, programming as such is not exactly an operating system dependant skill.07:43
yaccfritsch, well, the new SSD forced my hand anyway, I've ended with a basic setup of system/work filesystem with only $HOME encryption, this way the box can come up without issues to serve the most critical LAN-related services (e.g. routing to the internet, DHCP, DNS, ...), and only the "multimedia" stuff is in LUKS containers.07:45
fritschyacc: jep - i do the same07:46
fritschyacc: sssd boots fast07:46
yaccfritsch, the good part about this is, that I can unlock these easily enough via Internet if absolutely needed (e.g. I'm away for a week on a project site)07:46
fritschyacc: if key is inserted the other one is decrypted07:46
mang0What would you reccomend is a better browser for Ubuntu? Epiphany, or Google chrome?07:48
yaccfritsch, Well, how shall I say => I've kept the funny OCZ sticker "My SSD is faster than your hdd", and wonder if OCZ is will to add the critical addentum "for destroying data" => my OCZ Agility 3 died 2 days after first power on, now I'm back to a slower (but hopefully more reliable) Intel 320 SSD.07:48
yaccfritsch, you've got the scripts for make-initramfs packed up?07:48
yaccfritsch, anyway, any idea how to make the %$"$"§ SATA port work correctly or at least how to turn it off?07:49

llutz_Odaym: why don't you use a userdefined-entry?09:00
Odaymbecause "Always check if Firefox is my default browser" changes that back in Preferred Applications09:01

fritschActionParsnip1: if it would, there would be a mess if it wouldnet10:15
vista_killeri give this let me see what happen now :P10:15
fritschActionParsnip1: so you break package-management if you keep pacakges installed, which would need others10:16

fritschActionParsnip1: user will come back and ask you to fix it10:18
ActionParsnip1fritsch: the user said: (11:12:39) vista_killer: is there a command to remove one of the pakage without autoremove and depencies10:18
ActionParsnip1fritsch: so the command fits10:18
fritschActionParsnip1: i think the user wants to do something other10:19
vista_killernothing happens libc6:i386 refuse to remove10:19

osmosis_pauland i cannot move my windows10:58
ActionParsnip1osmosis_paul: hold ALT and you can drag from anywhere10:58
dev__i dont think its about 11.10. i have tried on 11.04 as well10:59
ActionParsnip1dev__: you are using Oneiric which is only supported in #ubuntu+110:59
osmosis_paulno you dont understand looks like a problem witm my graphic card10:59
benoliver999osmosis_paul: You on 11.04?10:59
ActionParsnip1osmosis_paul: do you use an nvidia gpu?10:59
osmosis_paulstart giving me problems since i activate the cube mode of workspace10:59
dev__i m, but i had same problem with 11.0411:00
osmosis_paul11.04 and nvidia11:00
dev__so i dont think its version of ubuntu but something else11:00
dev__banshee works with mp3 just fine11:00
ActionParsnip1osmosis_paul:  has some options to add to xorg.conf to make it better11:00
ActionParsnip1dev__: but you are having the issue in Oneiric presently11:01
ActionParsnip1its hugely simple11:01
osmosis_paulActionParsnip1, and do you know a quick solution, my workspace here in the office is useless now11:01
dev__had same with 11.0411:01

steve9000Hey, I'm behind a proxy server, and running Ubuntu in VMWare. I entered my proxy settings into Firefox and I can browse sites fine, but if I try to use the commandline (e.g. apt-get), it won't connect to anything. How can I fix this?11:01
napsteroneiric is gnome 3 ?11:02
dev__i know that11:02
benoliver999dev__: Problem is, if you find a solution it may not apply to 11.04.11:02
dev__but dont think oneiric is the problem here11:02
ActionParsnip1napster: yes if you choose to use Gnome desktop,11:02
dev__i found none11:02
napsterActionParsnip1: ok11:02
dev__thats why i m asking here, does anyone have problem with umplayer11:02
dev__not splayer or mplayer11:02
auronandacenapster: it supports gnome3 but default is unity (also discussion is #ubuntu+1)11:02
osmosis_paulActionParsnip1, and if i desinstall compiz?11:03
osmosis_pauli will fixi it? really dont have time, at least now to resolve this i have to continue working11:03
ActionParsnip1osmosis_paul: if you log off and select the Ubuntu Classic session, you will use Metacity instead of Compiz11:03
napsterauronandace: ok11:04
ActionParsnip1dev__: I can't make it any simpler, you are asking in the wrong channel. Regardless of where the issue started, you are using Oneiric, Oneiric isn't supported here until it is released. Pre-releases are only supported in #ubuntu+1 and WHEN Oneiric is released, the channel will dies and it will be supported in here along with all the other releases which are not EOL11:05
bazhangdev__, this is umplayer from some third party ppa?11:05
bazhang!info umplayer | dev__11:05
ubottudev__: Package umplayer does not exist in natty11:05
dev__nope at all11:05

Islamwhen I log in to my ubuntu it showes an error and says: you need to load kernel first13:00
dr_willisNicklas_:  you most likely want to remove that line. and rerun sudo apt-get update13:00
n0rfballDoes anyone know why there are only 4 themes available in 11.10? There doesn't seem to be a mention of the usual Clearlooks etc.13:03
binnicat file1.txt > file2.txt replaces the content of file2 with the content of file1, but how do I not replace but *add*?13:03
curious_yellowi still cant talk on ##linux wth13:03

dr_willisn0rfball:  gnome 3 uses differnt theme stuff i belive. go ask in #ubuntu+1 for 11.10 stuff.13:04
Nicklas_I obviously don't have /apt13:04

dr_willisNicklas_:  Huh?   the sources list is in /etc/apt/sources.list13:04
KATUSSShow do i check for processes running on ubuntu13:05
dr_willisKATUSSS:  the 'ps' command, or 'htop' or 'top' are common ways13:05
Nicklas_well i go cd /etc an then i go cd /apt. but then i get a message saying there's no such fil or fil katalog? I have it in norwegian, but you probably know what i mean13:05
dr_willisNicklas_:  time for some bash basics.. its not /apt13:05
dr_willis / -> is saying go to the root of the drive...13:05
dr_willis /etc/apt is not the same as /apt13:06
dr_willis and not the same as 'apt'13:06
dr_williscd /etc/13:06
dr_williscd apt13:06
Nicklas_oh, told you i was new13:06
dr_willisi gave the full path. :)13:06
KATUSSShow to reply to someone on xchat13:11
KATUSSSi am new here just learning how to use the xchat13:12
Nicklas_well i got a # in front o there now, but also a ")", but vi acts really weird when i try to type and even just move around with the marker13:13
ubuntu_hello anyone who is interested to help a fellow enthusiast out, if you have the time to do so13:13
bittingot some more ram for my webserver / debian client today :)13:13
ubuntu_I am currently installing 11.04 Ubuntu onto a 64Bit gaming laptop which has Windows Vista already installed on it13:13
ubuntu_a big problem is that the Ubuntu installer doesn't give the option to "install alongside "13:14
ubuntu_only the option to replace, and "something else" , so I click something else, and then I am forced to mess with a partition editor, and I know absolutely NOTHING about partitions13:14
ubuntu_so I've come to the conclusion that, since I have a completely empty partition / D drive, I can use that to install Ubuntu onto. I've formatted it 3 times it's completely empty and I used the "Allocate Drive Space" ubuntu tool to change it to ext2 , since I heard NTFS can't have ubuntu installed onto it13:15
KATUSSS<ubuntu>try installing the 9.0 then upgrade13:15
TheRandomhi, having trouble install Hamachi on my ubuntu machine, getting hamachi-init: error while loading shared libraries: libstdc++.so.5: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory error when making the original config file?13:16
popeyubuntu_: you dont need to format it, the ubuntu installer will13:16
ubuntu_then, I am using this "allocate drive space" tool that is in the installer under the "something else option" and, now that I've set that drive to be ext2 , which is compatible for ubuntu installation, I see that I need to set a device for boot  loader installation. I assume it's alright to set it to the same drive that I want to install ubuntu onto13:16
popeyubuntu_: no, dont try to install ubuntu on FAT or NTFS13:16
ubuntu_popey, i stated I set it to ext2 , not FAT or NTFS.13:16
popeyubuntu_: sorry, misread13:16
ubuntu_no probs13:17
ubuntu_i sselect install now , and I see it says13:17
popeyubuntu_: boot device can be the disk itself or whatever your current boot disk is13:17
popeyubuntu_: if you use the current disk it will replace the boot loader13:17
ubuntu_i have to set a "root " something13:17
ubuntu_so  I find out that means13:17
popeyubuntu_: root filesystem?13:17
popeyubuntu_: that would be "/" the top level13:18
ubuntu_i found out that meant the mount point13:18
ubuntu_exactly , however by default none of them have that13:18
ubuntu_they're all set to be "not used"13:18
ubuntu_so I set the drive / partition ( I assume they're the same thing), to13:18
ubuntu_just /13:18
ubuntu_as you said13:18
ubuntu_so that's good?13:18
ubuntu_But then, for boot loader installation, I don't understand which partition I should set that to13:19
ubuntu_if it shouldn't be the same that I am installing ubuntu onto13:19
ubuntu_basically you said it could be the boot disk13:19
ubuntu_but I really don't want that, lol13:19
ubuntu_and secondly you said, to use whatever I normally use for a boot disk13:19
ubuntu_but I don't even know what a boot disk is13:19
ubuntu_so I guess on every harddrive there's a partition meant for being the boot disk? AKA what starts the computer up / starts the OS selection? is that what you mean?13:20
ubuntu_can I PM you popeye since you're the only one who's talking to me about this, I don't want to spam up the chatroom13:20
ikoniaubuntu_: there is no partition for startup, it boots from the master boot record of the disk13:20
ubuntu_ikonia: Oh, so what should I set the "boot loader installation" to?13:21
ikoniaubuntu_: what does it offer as default13:21
ubuntu_Because, I have these drives already: dev/sda 1 , 2 , 3 , and 4, and then the whole thing is under "dev/sda"13:21
ikoniaubuntu_: what is it suggesting/offering you13:21
ubuntu_it gives the big umbrella of dev/sda by default, but it doesn't accept that13:22
ikoniaubuntu_: you boot from the disk (/dev/sda) you have file systems on the partitions (/dev/sda1,2,3)13:22
icerootubuntu_: that is only one drive, sda is the drive, the numbers are the partitions13:22
ubuntu_I've figured out my Sda2 is windows, sda 4 is my windows recovery , but I don't even have the recovery disks so am wondering if I should just format that,13:22
popeyubuntu_: sorry, stepped away from my desk13:22
ubuntu_and sda1 has space taken up but I have no idea what it's for and I know it's not Windows, and also Sda3 is what I've formatted to make be ubuntu's installation13:22
ikoniaubuntu_: it's /dev/sda13:22
ubuntu_So ikonia13:23
ikoniaubuntu_: that is where you boot from13:23
ubuntu_are you saying I should set my boot loader installation to the /dev/sda ?13:23
ikoniaubuntu_: yes13:23
ubuntu_will it not erase my windows installation? I want them side by side , you know13:23
ubuntu_Also, it talks to me about a "swap" something, but I don't know what to set as that13:23
ikoniaubuntu_: your windows installation is on a partition, not the master boot record13:23
TheRandomhi, having trouble install Hamachi on my ubuntu machine, getting hamachi-init: error while loading shared libraries: libstdc++.so.5: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory error when making the original config file?13:23
ikoniaubuntu_: did you read the install guide ?13:23
ubuntu_popey: that's OK , friend13:23
webbrowsehello, how can i see the content of a website folder: i have a link: www.link.com/example ; when i go there, i get a webpage, but i'd like to find the names the files that are there, such as: www.link.com/example/file.pdf ; is there a way to do that?13:24
ubuntu_ikonia: no, I just burned my own DVD of it and didn't check out any install guides... but I think I know alot more than someone who is just checking an install guide, at this point, anyways, so I think just getting through these last few parts is all I need, and I'm not sure if an install guide would take more time to read13:24
ikoniaubuntu_: it's clear you don't know a lot more than someone who has read the install guide13:24
MonkeyDustwebbrowse: which browser?13:24
TheRandomwebbrowse, not if the server you're looking at is setup properly.13:24
ikonia!install | ubuntu_13:25
ubottuubuntu_: Ubuntu can be installed in lots of ways. Please see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation for documentation. Problems during install? See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/CommonProblemsInstall - Don't want to use a CD? See http://tinyurl.com/3exghs - See also !automate13:25
popeyubuntu_: do you want to install on a completely empty disk?13:25
webbrowseTheRandom: what if it's not? :p13:25
fritschTheRandom: libstdc++5 <- this package is missing for you13:25
webbrowseMonkeyDust: google chrome13:25
webbrowseMonkeyDust: or chromium, rather13:25
MonkeyDustsame is I13:25
TheRandomfritsch, thanks.13:25
ubuntu_ikonia: Please forgive my ignorance, however I have never had any experience with programming, so I don't even know what a master boot record is , although I have heard of the term13:25
ikoniaubuntu_: this is nothing to do with programming13:25
ubuntu_ikonia: therefore are you saying setting my "boot loader installation" won't override anything to do with windows, AKA my files?13:26
fritschTheRandom: installation is a bit tricky, because this is a very old version13:26
TheRandomwebbrowse, almost all websites will treat that as a breach of T&C's. It's not the _done_ thing.13:26
ikoniaubuntu_: explained inthe install guide, however popey is helping you so I'll leave you be13:26
TheRandomfritsch, that seems to be the case :P13:26
ubuntu_ikonia: please I didn't say it did however I don't know the terms that a progammer or someone very experienced with computers in a professional way would know "13:26
fritschTheRandom: try it by: sudo apt-get install libstdc++513:26
ikoniaubuntu_: then it's worth reading the install guide13:26
ubuntu_ikonia: but I know more than an average "Sweet get the new iphone" scrub13:26
ikoniaubuntu_: it's clear you don't.13:26
ikoniaI'm out13:26
popeyubuntu_: so am i right in saying you have two disks, windows on one, and an empty disk?13:26
fritschTheRandom: http://packages.ubuntu.com/de/natty/libstdc++5 <- seem to be there13:26
ubuntu_ikonia: but I actually do13:26
TheRandomfritsch, installed, will continue trying to install ubuntu.13:26
webbrowseTheRandom: it's not the what? i'm just trying to correct a dead link; i got a link towards a pdf that's broken; i'm trying to find the real link13:27
ubuntu_ikonia: thanks for nothing thats bad karma for you13:27
TheRandom-ubuntu + hamachi13:27
fritschTheRandom: now your script should run13:27
ubuntu_popey: oh hey I mean, I don't have 2 disks13:27
TheRandomwebbrowse, what you are trying to do can be used to circumvent login scripts etc. Almost ALL websites won't allow you to see the files in a directory.13:27
TheRandomfritsch, thanks13:27
popeyubuntu_: you have one physical disk in the machine?13:27
ubuntu_popey: I have 1 disk with 4 partitions, 1 of them is completely set to be for ubuntu AKA formatted, but in Windows it would be read as a D Drive13:27
ubuntu_does that count as 2 disks? I'm not sure13:27
webbrowseTheRandom: i see13:28
popeyubuntu_: ok, i understand13:28
TheRandomfritsch, more errors.13:28
fritschTheRandom: other errors, i hope13:28
fritschTheRandom: i hope13:28
popeyubuntu_: so you set aside a chunk of space for ubuntu, and formatted it in windows13:28
TheRandomfritsch, indeed  error while loading shared libraries: libcrypto.so.0.9.7:13:28
popeyubuntu_: then tried to install ubuntu into that space?13:28
fritschTheRandom: apt-cache search libcrypto13:28
popeyubuntu_: now there's a slight flaw in the plan here13:28
ubuntu_popey: no I formatted it with ubuntu's live cd's tools13:28
ubuntu_popey: and im actually on the liveCD ubuntu right now , with the install tool open still on the last steps im stuck on13:28
popeyubuntu_: ok, i understand where you are13:29
fritschTheRandom: sudo apt-get install libssl0.9.713:29
ubuntu_popey: and worst of all the one guy who seemed pro enough to help, turned out to be a huge douche and just left after insulting me lol13:29
popeyubuntu_: here is the issue. You can only have 4 primary partitions on a disk, but you have 4 already, and ubuntu needs two by default13:29
popeyubuntu_: one is for the / "root" partition, and one is for "swap" space13:29
popeyubuntu_: so, I would go into the live cd disk utility and carefuly delete the blank partition you set aside for ubuntu13:30
fritschubuntu_: as a tipp there can be infty partitions in an extended volume13:30
popeyfritsch: I'm getting to that13:30
TheRandomfritsch, gotta restart hang on.13:30
VictorCLwhat's the closest to notepad++ on ubuntu?13:30
fritschopenvoid: sorry13:30
ikoniafritsch: no there can't13:30
ikoniathere can be 1513:30
ubuntu_lol thanks fritsch for tip13:30
popeyubuntu_: you can then create an extended partition in which you can have multiple partitions13:30
TheRandomVictorCL, that is an alarmingly deep debate :P13:30
fritschikonia: thx :-)13:30
ubuntu_popey: Oh I see. then I can split it's space into 2 new partitions set them to be root and swap?13:30
icerootVictorCL: why not use a real editor instead of notepad++?13:30
popeyubuntu_: exactamundo!13:31
MonkeyDust15 = F :)13:31
ubuntu_oh ikonia didn't leave how lovely13:31
popeyubuntu_: how much ram does your computer have?13:31
fritschikonia: i forgot about the ironie again13:31
VictorCLI just need something with syntax color for javascript,php ,html13:31
VictorCLfast . not an IDE13:31
icerootVictorCL: vim13:31
VictorCLjust an editor13:31
ubuntu_popey: but if I do that, it will be at 4 partitions all over again right13:31
VictorCLthat looks nice :p13:31
ubuntu_popey: I have another problem that the partition i've set aside for ubuntu is very small at 6 GB13:31
icerootVictorCL: if you want a gui, use gvim or emacs13:31
popeyubuntu_: no, an extended partition _contains_ multiple partitions13:31
PiciVictorCL: scite, both scite and notepad++ are based off of scintilla.13:31
ubuntu_popey: Oh so do you think 6 GB is enough space to create an extended partition out of ?13:32
icerootVictorCL: but its always a good idea to know how to handle vi/vim13:32
VictorCLwill check it out13:32
popeyubuntu_: thats big enough for a basic install, but not much room for growth13:32
VictorCLI hate vim13:32
icerootVictorCL: why?13:32
VictorCLhave to use commands to do most stuff ,, never remember all those commands13:32
TrueColors'net usershare' returned error 255: cannot open usershare directory /var/lib/samba/usershares. Error: no such file or directory found - Why am I receiving this? What is samba ?13:32
ubuntu_popey: I plan to install, and then move all my personal files into ubuntu , and then take away space from the windows installation and add possibly 20GB more to the ubuntu, do you think that sounds like a good plan13:32
icerootVictorCL: gvim13:33
fritschikonia: just for the record there can be more than F13:33
iceroot!samba | TrueColors13:33
ubottuTrueColors: Samba is the way to cooperate with Windows environments. Links with more info: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/MountWindowsSharesPermanently and https://help.ubuntu.com/10.04/serverguide/C/windows-networking.html - Samba can be administered via the web with SWAT.13:33
VictorCLgvime has tabs ?13:34
ubuntu_popey: that way, I won't risk losing my personal files by resizing the windows ' partition and adding space to the ubuntu partition, because the windows installation will have nothing on it that I need or care about13:34
fritschikonia: his means the number of logical drives that can be formed within an extended partition is limited only by the amount of available disk space in the given extended partition. quoted from wikipedia13:34
TrueColorsiceroot, why does my system have Samba ... it didn't cause this issue yesterday and the only thing I installed was FCGI?13:35
ikoniafritsch: read again13:35
popeyubuntu_: sounds like a time consuming plan13:35
popeyubuntu_: do you have an external disk you could use to copy stuff onto ?13:35
icerootTrueColors: e.g. wine is pulling samba/winbind. also samba is installed when interacting with windows-networks13:35
popeythe shrink/resize/move method can be fraught13:35
TrueColorsiceroot, what would class as a windows-network ?13:35
mang0So is there really no way to view .mov in google chrome?13:35
fritschikonia: you gave me the numbers for scsi13:35
icerootTrueColors: a network using wins, cifs and so on13:36
sean__anyone know why when i put a cd in the cdrom drive nothing pops up13:36
MonkeyDusti've gparted to resize partitions, but it took several hours13:36
TrueColorsiceroot, I have windows 7 installed... but that's all?13:36
MonkeyDusti've used*13:36
fritschikonia: ah you talk about the libata change, so in deed linux is limited to 1513:36
fritschikonia: this comes from libata managing now both scsi and ide?13:36
icerootTrueColors: maybe samba is installed by default because of nautilus which can interacte with windows-hosts13:36
icerootTrueColors: but i dont think that samba itself is your problem13:37
icerootTrueColors: why you net the command "net shares" (which is for windows-services on a network)13:37
clone234anyone that knows why i cant use the letters öäå when naming files on my harddrive?13:38
VictorCLfilesystem doestn speak norwegian I guess13:39
icerootclone234: its not a good idea to use this special chars on filenames13:39
dr_willisI dont even use spaces in filenames. :)13:40
RaTTuS|BIGclone if you put them inside "" you should be fine13:41
clone234iceroot> yeah well this is document that needs thoose characters....13:41
icerootclone234: i cant imaging there is one file in the world which is needing that chars13:41
RaTTuS|BIGI call rubbish on that13:41
icerootclone234: in germany we use "ae" instead of "ä"13:42
VictorCLwhy is [x] button to close windows to the left? .. when most people are right handed ?13:42
iceroot!controls | VictorCL13:42
ubottuVictorCL: Starting in Lucid, the minimize, maximize, and close buttons have been moved to the left side. For more informationand workarounds, please see http://pad.lv/53263313:42
clone234iceroot> i dont care about germany13:42
icerootclone234: stop it13:42
dr_willisVictorCL:  i dont see the logic of that :) but  when they did the move they gave some reasons.. i moved them back to the right side.13:42
dr_willisThere was supposed to eventually be some special winlet controlls on the right side. but that hasent happened yet.13:43

ikoniajatt: yes, you will be fine13:43
icerootjatt: yes13:44
dr_willisjatt:  if theres more then 1 user. you may need to add them in the same order. or correct the ownership.13:44
craigbass1976ikonia, what would that box be called?  a router?13:44

curious_yellowwhat exactly am i seeing when i type netstat13:44
icerootjatt: no, filesystem has nothing to do with amd6413:44
ikoniacraigbass1976: I guess so13:44
ikoniacraigbass1976: if you search for iptables and snort as two seperate products/functions, you'll find it easier13:44

sean__can anyone help me?.. is there away to like seperate.. files... im tryin to dl an iso file but its 1.9 gb's and i only have cd's like 700 mb13:45
Polahsean__: See man split13:46
curious_yellowis it normal to have a list of connections like 200 lines long though?13:46
sean__Polah,  ??13:46
icerootsean__: not possible if you want to "extract" the iso13:46
icerootsean__: only if you split the iso to more then one disc but the disc then only contains a part of the iso and not its content13:46
dr_willissean__:  what kind of iso?13:46
icerootcurious_yellow: yes13:46
sean__an os iso13:47
curious_yellowwth are all these connections for13:47
dr_willissean__:  what are you going to do with it afterwards?13:47
sean__will have a os on it13:47
Polahsean__: Type man split in a terminal, it'll give you the manual for the split command. Although, arbitrarily splitting and ISO and putting parts on different disks doesn't sound like it'd work. Perhaps use a USB drive instead.13:47
icerootcurious_yellow: e.g. local connections from programs, listening daemons and so on13:47
dr_willissean__:  you cant split it and have it be bootable on 2 cd's if thats what you are after13:47
Gentoo64curious_yellow, leave it idle and theyll go away13:47
Gentoo64curious_yellow, theyre prob half open13:47
icerootsean__: buy a dvd13:47
Polahsean__: What you can do it configure GRUB to boot from the ISO. Then you can make a partition for it, install there then boot into it and repartition again13:48
RaTTuS|BIGsean__ that will not work13:48
sean__well this may sound stupid.. but i have a 4 gb dvd disc that only has a dvd on it.. is there away to put the iso on their?13:48
dr_willisive put iso files on my /boot/ partition and set grub2 to boot them :) but each iso/os can be differnt to setup13:48
RaTTuS|BIGsean__ not you will need a new dvd13:49
dr_willisonly has a dvd on it? huh?  you have to burn the iso as an image file. it cant share. :)13:49
sean__Lol so i cant format it?13:49
MonkeyDustdr_willis: how do you do that /boot stuff?13:49
sean__How about vmare?13:50
elb0w`So I changed the interface file to make the ip static13:50
elb0w`but for some reason it is not listening13:50
dr_willisMonkeyDust:  i make a /boot/ partition thats like 10gb. to hold the iso files. then i make a /etc/grub.d/40_custom with the right entries to boot each iso.13:50
Gentoo64sean__, if its rewritable you can13:50
elb0w`it went to dhcp on reboot13:50
dr_willissean__: whats your end goal anyway?13:50
MonkeyDustsounds great13:50
mang0http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=11295923#post11295923 any help greatly appreciated!13:50
Polahdr_willis: you don't need /boot on it's own partition, mind. You could just create an "isos" folder in /boot/ and then point GRUB there for them.13:50
dr_willisPolah:  i wanted /boot/ on its own partition.  :)13:51
dr_willisPolah:  that way i can reinstall the actual Ubuntu OS if i wanted to..13:51
dr_willisnew release.. i put the new iso in /boot/ and boot it// reinstall the whole os.13:51
sean__kk now for another question.. i put a dvd in my cdrom.. so why doesnt it say anything13:51
dr_willisafter i backup my 40_custome :)13:51
sean__doesnt have no pic of a cd rom on desktop13:52
MonkeyDustwell, /boot does not have its own partition here and i'm not going to repartition *again* ;)13:52
dr_willissean__:  whats on the dvd?13:52
dr_willissean__:  if theres no data or fs on it.. it cant mount it.13:52
Gentoo64sean__, thats prob why13:52
Polahdr_willis: You could store 40_custom on your boot partition and symlink /etc/grub.d/40_custom to it13:52
sean__Im tryin to burn the iso on the dvd13:52
sean__wont let me?..13:52
dr_willisPolah:  i got 40_custome archived on my ubuntu one account. :) it rarely changes ..13:52
Gentoo64sean__, use brasero. or are you trying a dvd in a cd drive?13:52

Chris3Gentoo64: I was actually thinking of just dropping a second phyiscial hard drive in my PC Box, and installing on that.  Then I could select which HD to boot from when I start my computer.15:06
Gentoo64Chris3, thats even better yes. unplug the windows drive when installing though to be 100% sure the bootloader gets written to the ubuntu drive15:07

HagopHGood morning, all. I need some hardware help with my new Ubuntu insallation attempt. Yesterday I got my USB flash drive to boot to Ubuntu and I selected "Install Ubuntu to HD." The installation began and recognized my 1TB SATA HD. The installer failed with an error (unfortunately I didn't record the message) and every attempt since has failed to recognize the HD. Would somebody please help me diagnose this?15:08
ActionParsnipChris3: you can resize the ntfs in the live cd15:08
Gentoo64tiuman, idk about that. i use privoxy and polipo15:08
Gentoo64not sure if they can do same thing or not15:08
ActionParsnipHagopH: did you MD5 test the ISO you downloaded15:08
Gentoo64well, privoxy anyway15:08
Shawn_ActionParsnip, Lol just realised, I cant pastie it with no internet15:09
ActionParsnipShawn_: is the system a laptop?15:09
Shawn_ActionParsnip, A netbook15:09
ActionParsnipShawn_: then take a walk and use a wired connection15:09
Shawn_ActionParsnip, Its a netbook that doesnt have an ethernet port15:10
ActionParsnipShawn_: I bet you it does, what model is it?15:10
Shawn_ActionParsnip, Dell Inspiron Duo... it does not have an ethernet port15:10
ActionParsnipShawn_: can you give the full model?15:10
Shawn_ActionParsnip, Its the convertible netbook / tablet15:10
Chris3Gentoo64 and ActionParsnip: Can I do the install from a bootable thumbdrive which I already created?15:10
Gentoo64Chris3, yes15:11
Shawn_ActionParsnip, Its just called a Dell Inspiron Duo, there is only one model15:11
ActionParsnipChris3: yes, but did you test the ISO you transferred?15:11
HagopHActionParsnip: I don't remember specifically MD5 testing that specific ISO, but I remember the installer testing one of my ISOs.15:11
ActionParsnipShawn_: with a weird flippy screen?15:11
Chris3ActionParsnip: I am not sure how to test it.  I have booted from it.  Is that what you mean?15:11
Shawn_ActionParsnip, Yes15:11
ActionParsnipHagopH: you need to md5 test the ISO before you use it15:12
katronixserfwith the ubuntu beta installed, would it be easy to do a downgrade to the current version? with out burning another dvd?15:12
Gentoo64Chris3, you can use winmd5sum for windows or md5sum (linux) against the iso15:12
Gentoo64Chris3, or just try it and see if it works, the livecd should have a "test disk for errors" or similar when you boot it15:12

induz_MonkeyDust, thanks but what is similair to Thunderbird15:56
induz_I am using gnome Desktop15:56
induz_will Kmail work on it15:57
llutzinduz_: it will but why don't you just fix your tb?15:57
RaTTuS|BIGuninstall tb , re-install15:57
induz_llutz, I dont know how15:58
MonkeyDustinduz_: haven't tried them, feel free to find out15:58
llutzinduz_: 1st rename/move your ~/.thunderbird, then try again15:58
induz_llutz, I did that but It fails15:58
llutzinduz_: what error?15:58
induz_llutz, I think the caleder has the problem15:59
SmokeyDhey everyone, what changed between ubuntu 10.04 and ubuntu 10.10 with respect to libssl? I have a wget command that works in ubuntu 10.10 but not in 10.04 (I tried different machines, and even one where it didn't work before the upgrade from 10.04 to 10.10 and it does after the upgrade)15:59
llutzinduz_: the lightning-addon you mean? remove it16:00
soreauSmokeyD: What makes you think libssl is to blame?16:00
SmokeyDthe same problem also occurs in the very simple python script on http://paste.pound-python.org/show/18pzFCImoOwxIVRK3TAW/16:00
induz_llutz, yes...I re-installed the TB but16:00
induz_is anyone using squirremail here16:01
SmokeyDsoreau, since I am requesting a https url, both from wget and from a python script using the httplib16:01
SmokeyDthe script is in the paste I just posted16:01
llutzinduz_: squirrelmail is a webmailer, needs a pop3/imap server to access16:01
Shawn_What do I do if my netbook has suddenly disabled LAN and the key command to enable it is not working16:01
SmokeyDon the same machine both the wget --no-check-certificate fails and the python script fails16:01
nnplug in a keyboard with the same key?16:01
llutzinduz_: thats not a mail-client like tb/evolution/kmail16:01
soreauSmokeyD: Sounds like it's time for some bisecticide :P16:01
induz_llutz, thanks for clarifying that16:01
SmokeyDsoreau, bisecticide?16:02
induz_how can i install Kamil16:02
llutzinduz_: "sudo apt-get purge thunderbird"16:02
induz_llutz, Kamil is for KDE and i am using gnome16:02
llutzinduz_: mv ~/.thunderbird ~/.thunderbird.bak16:02
llutzinduz_: "sudo apt-get install thunderbird"16:02
soreauSmokeyD: Sorry, I was being facetious. If you build the problem component from source, you can then perform a bisect which basically means, systematically find which commit broke it16:02
rwwinduz_: you can run KDE apps on GNOME and vice-versa.16:03
induz_llutz, what r these???? commands16:03
llutzinduz_: kmail would work with gnome too, just pulls a lot of dependencies into your system16:03
llutzinduz_: commands are an attempt to fix your TB16:03
soreauSmokeyD: Most revision control tools have bisect functions built-in to help automate the process16:03
induz_llutz, r they in the same order16:03
SmokeyDsoreau, :) yeah ok. I could do that, but that will take me a full day I think to find first which package is the problem in the first case, then hand compile and isntall it intill I found it. I am not sure it is libssl itself or another library16:03
llutzinduz_: yes, in that order pls16:04
ichatMonkeyDust -  tnx for the link but it doens't seem to help16:04
llutzinduz_: if it still fails, you can install kmail :)16:04
soreauSmokeyD: Alternatively, you can file a bug against ubuntu and hope someone else will fix it16:04
induz_llutz, i get this :"Unable to lock the administration directory (/var/lib/dpkg/), is another process using it?16:05
ichatMonkeyDust - tried 3 methods listed...  teh last link http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php?p=10796508&postcount=44 << here  says you should use fw cutter16:05
llutzinduz_: close all other package-tools like synaptic, softwarecenter16:05
induz_llutz, will I lose my emails16:06
llutzinduz_: not if you backup ~/.thunderbird (2nd command)16:06
mrdoctorwhoHello. Afrer update to 11.10 libreoffice opening documents very slowly and get many CPU time. What i should to do? (Sorry for my english)16:07
llutzinduz_: i'd suggest using imap, so you won't have to deal with mails locally in the future16:07
llutzinduz_: so did "sudo apt-get purge thunderbird" work now?16:08
induz_llutz, the commands r working now16:08
llutzinduz_: ls -ld ~/.thunderbird             has to give an error, pls try16:09

AceKingAfter an update this morning on my Toshiba Satellite c655d-s5200 which is running Ubuntu 10.10 32 bit, I no longer have internet connection (wired or wireless)16:10

induz_llutz, how can i now, after re-installing TB, get back my Old emails16:12
soreauAceKing: How do you connect?16:12

magicblaze007did anyone run ubuntu on nook-color yet?16:15
llutzinduz_: rm -r ~/.thunderbird/extensions/*16:15
soreaunn: You need permissions to copy files into directories you do not own16:15
llutzinduz_: so you wont loose any mails, since they all were stored at google, not locally16:15
llutz(unless you downloaded them)16:16
induz_llutz, no16:16
induz_llutz, do i need these new command16:16
llutzinduz_: in that case, just create a new account with your gmail-credentials and you're done16:16
llutzinduz_: no need to deal with the old profile16:17
AceKingsoreau, It says no wireless or wired16:17
soreauAceKing: Well that's certainly a problem..16:17
AceKingsoreau, It was working before the update16:17

SmokeyDsoreau, llutz is there also some place I can see what changed in the source code? In those two tips I can only see the changelog16:22
llutzinduz_: i never used yahoo http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/smallbusiness/bizmail/pop/16:22
induz_llutz, u r great in helping on TB16:22
llutzSmokeyD: i'd guess you'll have to download both version sources and diff them16:23
martianHow does one go about adding a folder shortcut to the 'Places' menu?16:23
SmokeyDllutz, there is no repository somewhere online that I can use? Like trac, or svn in general or something? And where do I find the specific source of those specific ubuntu packages?16:24
llutzSmokeyD: i don't know, sry16:24
Lasersmartian: Open the desired window with Nautilus. Look in the menu. Add Bookmark.16:24
llutzSmokeyD: sources "apt-get source libssl"  for current version16:24

tomasm-hi, i just got an email from my ISP that i apparently have a malicious bot on my system... i'm curious what it could be, or if they're just yanking my chain.... i did notice I've received a few spam rejection emails sending an email to 4 emails that I remember all emailing in the same one or two days through my ISP's webmail client, so it gives me a bit of suspicion16:29
AceKingsoreau, I typed what was there. No eth016:29
soreauSmokeyD: Apparently, libssl is provided by openssl. You'd have to locate the upstream repo or checkout the source to browse it16:29
intgrDoes anyone know how to use this Launchpad thing to report bugs? I don't want ubuntu-bug crap or long 10-page articles about reporting bugs16:29
Lasersmartian: Well, what do you mean? Produce a screenshot? If you're on 11.04, I can't help you because I haven't been on that.16:29
VictorCLwhere can I change the resolution of screen? ¬¬16:30
tomasm-is there any legitimacy on this? I just have a clean install, though i do run 'transmission' from time to time16:30
soreauAceKing: Well that's a pretty big problem and I'm not sure where to start diagnosing it. First thing, make sure the drivers are loaded for the network hardware16:30
VictorCLlost 20 minutes looking trhough menus16:30
AceKingsoreau, I already did that. I even deactivated and reactivated the drivers16:30
AceKingsoreau, and restarted the network connection16:31
MonkeyDustVictorCL: try Alt-F2 gnome-control-center16:31
soreauAceKing: How exactly did you 'deactivated and reactivated the drivers'>16:31
AceKingsoreau, I went into System/ Hardware Drivers16:32
ichatany other hints on how to get my  bcm 4311 working...16:32
soreauAceKing: You shouldn't have anything there for your ethernet card..16:32
martianLasers: http://martian.mit.edu/screen.png I'm wondering if there is some way to specify items to be siblings of 'Mars' and 'Desktop'16:33
soreaumost all use chips that have open drivers16:33
h00ktomasm-: Are you running a mail server on your system?16:33
AceKingsoreau, No, it's for the wireless16:33
soreauand that driver utility is exclusively for proprietary drivers16:33
AceKingsoreau, OK16:33
Lasersmartian: How many folders under "Bookmarks"16:33
tomasm-h00k, perhaps coincidentally.... but it's behind a firewall i believe16:33
AceKingsorsis, The update must have really screwed things up16:33
martianLasers: eleven, and yes it is 11.04, but on 'classic'16:34
soreauAceKing: I'm not talking about wireless right now. If you have no eth0 interface, something is really wrong. You need to find out if the drivers are loaded for the network card16:34
AceKingsoreau, I may just need to do a reinstall16:34
h00ktomasm-: perhaps check with #ubuntu-server if you have one running on your system, someone may be using it as a relay or something.16:34
soreauAceKing: Check the output of 'dmesg' for errors16:34
AceKingsoreau, That is what I am saying16:34
nnis there some sort of glib package that i can install from terminal?16:34
tomasm-h00k, i can check the logs i guess.... thanks16:34
Lasersmartian: Here you go. 11 folders. If you have 4-5ish, it all would be in the menu, but too many, so Bookmark sub.16:34
Lasersmartian: You can fix it by downloading the source code. Change the code from 4 or 5 to... 20? I did it once long time ago. :316:35
SmokeyDsoreau, but don't the ubuntu maintainers also patch packages? So I guess there has to be some ubuntu specific repository somewhere doesn't there? I mean, the version numbers 0.9.8k-7ubuntu8.6 and 0.9.8o-1ubuntu are also ubuntu specific16:35
martianLasers: Ahh, I see. So if you have a small number of bookmarks, it consolidates them into the main menu. Thanks! I was really just curious what drove the logic behind it.16:36
nnwhat is rm -rf?16:36
AceKingsoreau, Not that I can see. I think I'm just going to do a reinstall on the laptop. It will probably be the easiest fix. I appreciate your help!16:36
ikoniann: it removes things nn16:36
llutznn a bad joke, stop it16:36
soreauSmokeyD: If you look on packages.ubuntu.com, you can see for each package, they provide the original source tarball, a diff and then their final tarball for the target ubuntu version16:36
paean_nn, man rm16:36
Lasersmartian: No problem. It annoys me sometimes because I only added one extra folder and that's it.16:37
Lasersmartian: They should at least implement gconf option for the user to change instead of hardcoding in the source.16:37
tomeoCould anyone recommend an FTP-client for ubuntu which can handle FTP with TLS/SSL for connections?16:38
llutztomeo: lftp, filezilla16:38
ikoniatomeo: that's pretty much a dead technology now16:38
ikoniatomeo: if people are using ssl - they are using scp over ssh16:38
tomeoikonia: well Ill tell the host about that!16:38
tomeoikonia: so sftp would be the way to go now?16:39

llutz!sudo | Apple517:43
ubottuApple5: 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/fixsudo17:43
ActionParsnipApple5: no, when you need admin access, prepend the command with sudo17:43

ActionParsnipApple5: then the command you want after, like I said. Its for when you need admin access17:45
nnwhat does 'checking for header' mean?17:45

LjLApocalypse_dn: Ubuntu doesn't work like that, packages aren't updated on a stable release, with some exception (firefox might be one, not sure, but don't expect to see it in a matter of two days)17:46
sean__10.04 = more stabel thought right17:46
tensorpuddingsean__, it's like asking what's the difference between windows 7 and windows vista17:46
tensorpuddingsean__, 10.04 is an LTS release, meaning that it will be supported longer17:46
sean__which do u perfer 10.04 or 11.0417:46

hoopyfreudApple5, most security vulnerabilities are fixed in updates.18:23
ufotechlogin -p works as well18:23
PolahGentoo64: Doesn't clamav scan for both? Obviously primarily for Windows because there's a lot more viruses there?18:24
Apple5how do i install something with archieve manager!18:24
codemagicianPolah, actually doing a uname shows "Linux zeus 2.6.32-317-ec2"18:24
PolahApple5: What are you trying to install? It may be in the repositories?18:24
Gentoo64Polah, no only windows18:24
Glitchy_hoopyfreud where do i find the ca.crt file?18:24
Picicodemagician: #ubuntu-cloud or #ubuntu-server may be more informative than here.18:24
PolahGentoo64: Ah, I see. Thought it did both, good to know.18:24
codemagicianPolah, the hyphen -ec218:24
codemagicianPici, aha cool18:24
hoopyfreudApple5, this channel is not a tutorial. Please refer to documentation and check back in if you have any problems following it,18:24
Gentoo64Polah, there arent swarms of viruses for linux. peple can obviously make malicious files though18:24
Glitchy_is that already part of ubuntu?18:25
Apple5ohk i look up manager18:25
PolahApple5: Do sudo apt-get install tor18:25
hoopyfreudGlitchy, I have no idea. try "locate ca.crt"18:25
PolahApple5: Applications that come as anything other than  a .deb or from the repositories will typically involve building from source.18:25
leepingHi there, my new Ubuntu installation doesn't have the network driver (at least, that's what I think; it reports no eth0 device).  Could I be missing the network driver?  If so, can someone help me install it?  Thanks18:26
Polahhoopyfreud: Actually, it's a support channel. If someone asks how to build something from source, we'll help them do that or achieve the same thing in a better way (i.e. getting from repos)18:26
Gentoo64Apple5, tor is in the repos18:26
Gentoo64i think18:26
llutzApple5: https://www.torproject.org/docs/debian.html.en#ubuntu18:26
PolahGentoo64: It is, I see it.18:27
llutzGentoo64: Polah from link above "Do not use the packages in Ubuntu's universe."18:27
hoopyfreudglitchy, did you find it?18:27
Polahllutz: Ah I see.18:27
Gentoo64llutz, my bad idk18:27
asteveis there a way for a user to change their password if one was never set?18:28
Glitchy_i found 2 on ubuntu already, then the one they have on the site, which i believe is for a windows machine18:28
Gentoo64asteve, passwd user18:28
PolahApple5: Follow llutz instructions then18:28
larsduesinghi together18:28
Glitchy_i believe the crt file is what is stopping me from connecting18:28
asteveGentoo64: I want user_a to change their own password if one was never set18:28
Gentoo64llutz, although im not sure why, i thought ubuntus updates were mainly security/stability18:28
oCean!tor | Apple518:29
ubottuApple5: Tor is a program to route connections through several servers for anonymity. It is in Ubuntu's repositories, but the Tor Project recommends using their Tor packages due to past issues with Ubuntu's. For setup info, see option (2) of https://www.torproject.org/docs/debian.html.en | To use Tor on freenode, see !tor-sasl18:29
llutzGentoo64: most are, except tor and some other18:29
Gentoo64asteve, maybe passwd user will still work18:29
asteveit does not18:29
Gentoo64asteve, do it from another user18:29
atomxnobody is able to help me , please ?18:29
Gentoo64asteve, and use sudo18:29
asteveGentoo64: ….the user does not have access to sudo18:29
atomx(about the network)18:29
galanakisHow can I change the key shortcut for searching? I want to change it from being "mod" to "mod+space" but when i change it in the Key shortcuts menu nothing happens:(18:29

t-minusI'm thinking about trying Chrome OS on my dell mini 9, any thoughts or suggestions?18:29
cong2Everything is working. I has that weird burst sound problem but that's gone now.18:30
Gentoo64asteve, no idea what you've done. you cant do a lot without sudo / root access18:30
hoopyfreudGlitchy, the crt file on the site SHOULD work, but I'm not exactly sure...18:30
asteveGentoo64: ….18:30
HagopHI need help diagnosing Ubuntu not recognizing my HD. Would somebody please help me?18:30

Glitchy_thats the one im using...well one of the files they game me is broke lol18:30
Gentoo64asteve, and chroot18:30
JokesOnYou77Does anyone know how to get the "ding" in chatzilla in Ubuntu when someone mentions your Nic?18:30
Polahasteve: If you're on the user just now, then just running passwd will let you set one. passwd $user will change $user's password, sudo would let you do that for user accounts other than your own.18:30
astevethat's not my problem,18:30
Glitchy_creating a folder and creating a directory are the same thing correct?18:30
astevethis is a production environment where I'm creating 20 users; it would be nice if they could all set their passwords as soon as they logged in18:31
anonissimusis there a way of changing the last accessed date of a file? I tried touch -a but that doesnt seem to change it18:31
Glitchy_okay, so step five is done then...i dont get it18:31
astevebut I don't want to pre-emptively set their passwords to something18:31
HagopHI need help diagnosing Ubuntu not recognizing my HD. Would somebody please help me?18:31

_klk_1the device is recognized and established as "eth1" interface.  i can't get it to have an IP or connect to the internet though.  any tips?18:32
anonissimusYounder: then dolphin does not update18:33
Younder_klk_, what happened to eth018:33
mephist0hi there.  someone know how to use keyboard as mouse? tryed <shift><cntrl><num lock> and no luck18:33

Younderanonissimus, rubbish use sudo18:33
mang0Anyone know how to get .mov files working in chrome for ubuntu? I've installed mplayer and w32codecs18:33
JokesOnYou77mephist0: I just figured out how to turn that function off actually, hang on I've got a link18:33
Polahasteve: Might I recommend setting some arbitrary string as their password, telling them that and then telling them to use passwd then set a password after logging in. If they have no password set and can log in without one, then another user or anyone could log on as that user before they set a password if usernames are easy to guess.18:33
Younderanonissimus, rubbish use sudo touch <file>18:33
JokesOnYou77mephist0: http://omkarverma-ubuntu-tips.blogspot.com/2011/09/how-to-move-your-mouse-pointer-with.html18:33

anonissimustrying that now18:33
mephist0JokesOnYou77: thanks18:34
Polahasteve: Ah, then they shouldn't need a password if they're authenticating with keys18:34
astevenot to ssh in, but to sudo they will;18:34
hoopyfreudDoes anyone know if Ubutu can detect 20/40 MHz networks? a 20MHz network works fine for me18:34
_klk_1Younder:  eth0 is the regular ethernet connection.18:34
YounderPolah, I recommend taking basis in a book title. That is easier to remember.18:35
Becohey guys can I trust this site http://www.playdeb.net18:35

YounderPolah, say Upstairs downstairs.18:36

gebbioneis there a way to show the folder path and being able to edit it manually in the gnome interface?18:36

astevePolah: can't set an arbitrary password; i guess I'm SOL18:36
Becodavidcalle any good games you recommend?18:37
hoopyfreudGlitchy, in case you missed it, check the /etc/openVPN folder for the conf files18:37
Gentoo64_klk_1, eth1 has no ip set, doesnt it let you do it in the net manager?18:37
davidcalleBeco, Urban Terror!18:37
HagopHI need help diagnosing Ubuntu not recognizing my HD. Would somebody please help me?18:37
Polahasteve: Why not? When you create the account just make up twenty passwords something like london.oceanic1, obviously different and tell them that and how to reset it.18:37
astevePolah: can't tell them18:37
Gentoo64Beco, there are a few, but for online, even the polular games have only 1 or 2 servers with players in18:38
JokesOnYou77mephist0: ahhh, guess my method is just for gnome.  Unless that functionality is built into the Xserver I don't know that there's a single way to do that across distros18:38
YounderPolah, Upstairs, Downstairs was originally an idea by two actress friends, Jean Marsh and Eileen Atkins, becomes USDSJMEA18:38
Gentoo64ie urbanterror, nexuiz etc18:38

organiksanyone know what would cause this18:40
organikssudo aticonfig --list-adapters18:40
organiksX11 connection rejected because of wrong authentication.18:40

HagopHWhen I type "sudo fdisk -l" Ubuntu isn't showing my HD. It's SATA. Any ideas?18:40
A_Jhoopyfreud: any other method, i don't think it's a bios issue18:40

antihoaxHagopH<< i'd think your sata driver is not loaded, or installed18:41
