jclbrtright now i have it set to the directions i posted above the iptables config00:00
SeveasJokesOnYou77, you'll want to look at NX I think00:01
SIFTUFudge: reboot.. I'm sure it's one of those00:01
ActionParsnipjclbrt: webmin isn't to be used with ubuntu00:01
FudgeSIFTU  wont it have the same problem after a reboot?00:01
Fudgeits headless00:01
jclbrtummm why?00:01
jclbrti have it operating fine on about 18 other boxes00:01
ActionParsnip!webmin | jclbrt00:01
ubottujclbrt: webmin is no longer supported in Debian and Ubuntu. It is not compatible with the way that Ubuntu packages handle configuration files, and is likely to cause unexpected issues with your system.00:01

JokesOnYou77Seveas: NX? Not the Siemens CAD program I'm assuming00:02
jclbrtthats very strange never had any problems with it before00:02
jclbrtand i have 10.04 installed on all my boxes00:02
ActionParsnipjclbrt: its not to be used, you can set it easily with SSH00:02
jclbrtok.. how can i do it with ssh?00:02
FudgeSIFTU  yeah its a lts 10.0.3 box now, was jaunty00:02
Fudgeoops .400:03
GridCubechanging a partition size changes its uuid?00:04
mrdeboh 10 3 is out?00:04
SeveasJokesOnYou77, no :) nomachine.com00:04
ActionParsnipjclbrt: you need to know the interface name then set the gateway IP and tell it to use that interface00:04
mrdebis it better to wait for 111000:04
bazhangmrdeb, there is no 10.300:04
jribmrdeb, Fudge: there's no such thing as those versions00:04
GridCubemrdeb, 10.04.3 exist00:04
bazhangmrdeb, it does not exist00:04
mrdebgrid it does00:04
jclbrtwhich interface? the LAN interface or the WAN interface00:05
jclbrti know both of those00:05
JokesOnYou77Seveas: thanks for the suggestion, but the functionality of the X server and VNC are more than sufficient for me00:05
jclbrtalso what config files do i need to edit for that00:05
Fudgejrib  what doesnt exist? 10.4.3?00:05
jribFudge: that too and 10.0.3 that you said earlier00:06
Fudgejrib  it was clearly a typo but lts rel .3 does exist, your mistaken00:06

footvillaok guys so i got my telnet to work00:06
ActionParsnipjclbrt: whichever you want to get the web with00:06
jclbrthuh? lol...00:07
ActionParsnipjclbrt: I suggest you run:  route     on the server and on your client, and compare00:07
jclbrtok now i am really lost00:07
jclbrtwhat do u mean run route?00:07
jclbrti have a windows client connected to ETH1 (where it's getting DHCP) and ETH0 is connected to my modem00:08
GridCubeill repeat my question, does changing a partition changes its UUID?00:08
jclbrtmy Windows PC is indeed able to ping the server but unable to ssh to the server, or even get on the internet00:08
footvillaneed some opinons, i just finished installing postfix, im looking to to set up my email server im new to linux and looking for an easy install what do i install next?00:08
jribGridCube: changing a partition in what way?00:08
jclbrtfrom the server (running ubuntu) i am able to ping my PC client by IP, and also able to ping the internet00:08
jclbrtwhat I dont understand is what you mean by setting up the routes or even how to compare the routes between the two machines00:09
jclbrtforgive me if the questions is pretty elementary but i've never set ubuntu up at the head of a network (I.E. as the DHCP server)00:09
Fudgejclbrt  yes i think it does00:09
footvillamaybe Postfix + mySQL and Postfixadmin to manage it for that i would will need apache + php with mysql support maybe horde groupware for webmail00:09
jclbrtfudge: yes what does?00:10
jribGridCube: I believe so00:10
Fudgejclbrt  the uuid?00:11
GridCubeFudge, i asked the uuid :P00:11
RP64guys is ubuntu the only linux distro that automatically has drivers set up when you install it , i mean, do other ones do that or for all other linux distros do you have to manually download all your drivers before installing, put them on a disk / something and then load them after u install the new distro?00:11
FudgeGridCube  sorry loL, Use 'blkid -o value -s UUID' to print the universally unique identifier00:11
GridCubeso what updates fstabs if i change a partition size?00:12
FudgeGridCube  im not sure if fstab actually gets updated, i recall when moving stuff around in gparted having to change swaps uuid to a new value00:12
jribGridCube: are you sure anything does?00:12
jclbrtfudge that has nothing to do with what i'm doing00:12
qinRP64: Ubuntu would be one distro which do not install properiary drivers by default.00:13
jclbrtu r probably talking to someone else00:13
Fudgejclbrt  yeah my bad00:13
jclbrti'm having routing issues00:13
ActionParsnipRP64: depends for what hardware, proprietary ones like Broadcom, Nvidia and Ati cannot be legally included00:13
RP64qin: i mean like video drivers sound drivers etc.00:13
GridCubejrib, nope thats why im asking, it sounds very silly to use UUID instead of the old /dev/sd* way of doing things00:13
RP64ActionParsnip: yo so action lol i know nvidia obviously i am experiencing that hardcore atm but like00:13
RP64ActionParsnip:  basically yea what was the new plan we were gonna do ? I cant remember00:13
jribGridCube: well it's nice if you put a new disk in or take one out, etc00:14

rhsanbornI'm trying to install a package on maverick, I'm getting this:  ros-electric-eigen : Depends: libeigen3-dev (= 3.0.1-1+ros4~maverick) but 3.0.1-1+ros4~natty is to be installed. It looks like it doesn't want to install the package pending the upgrade. But I don't want to do the upgrade, any ideas?00:14
Fudgejclbrt  i guess its better than no article s:D00:14
MonkeyDustjclbrt: we're all unique00:14
jclbrtit'd be nice to have a readme that worked for a change tho00:14
GridCubeoh, well thanks jrib i will change all my UUID names to /dev/sd* paths00:15
Fudgerhsanborn  I have found aptitude is pretty good at recommending methods to get your package working00:15
JokesOnYou77does anyone have any experience with Xephyr?00:15
jclbrtpretty sure ActionParsnip is correct but i have no clue what hes talking about00:15
hopinick plus-00:15
jclbrtor even how to do what he is saying to do00:15
MonkeyDustjclbrt: be creative and combine some things you learned here00:16
rhsanbornFudge: I'm sorry, I'm not sure what you mean.00:16
jclbrtwell i havent learned anything yet00:16
jclbrtsince my problem is still existing00:17
Fudgerhsanborn  such as aptitude install package and if there are conflicts it gives you alternatives to get it working00:17
Fudgejclbrt  what was ActionParsnip 's method?00:17
jclbrtand seemingly noone can explain how to properly configure IPtables to allow me to route properly00:17
Fudgeoh jclbrt  sorry thats out of my depth, they go upside down though dont they lol00:17
ActionParsnipFudge: seems to be a routing issue00:17
seidelwhats the command to see what kind of graphic card i have??00:17
ActionParsnipjclbrt: do both interfaces have a default gateway set?00:17
MonkeyDustjclbrt: then kindly learn how to configure IP tables00:18
FudgeActionParsnip  has he tried disabling iptables to see if its related?00:18
ActionParsnipseidel: sudo lshw -C display00:18
jclbrtActionParsnip what do you mean?00:18
ActionParsnipFudge: I don't believe so00:18
jclbrtplease explain00:18
jclbrthow would i know00:18
ActionParsnipjclbrt: a network interface will get a default gateway set, telling the OS where to send packets to in order to connect to the network. This is usualy the IP of a router00:19
Fudgejclbrt  we're trying to see if the routing issue is related to iptables or something else00:19
seidelwhats the command to see what kind of graphic card i have? on archlinux?00:19
ActionParsnipjclbrt: do both interfaces have a default gateway set?00:19
ActionParsnipseidel: arch isn't supported here00:19
jclbrtActionParsnip i am trying to make my ubuntu a router00:19
jclbrtthats the issue00:19
jclbrtthere is not router00:19
bazhang#archlinux seidel00:19
jclbrtit connects RIGHT to my modem00:19
FloodBot1jclbrt: Please don't flood; use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste; don't use Enter as punctuation.00:19
Fudgejclbrt  in that case the gateway is your modem00:19
ActionParsnipjclbrt: fine, but do both interfaces on the system have a default gateway IP defined?00:19
SIFTUjclbrt: sudo apt-get install pastebinit -y && netstat -rn | pastebinit00:20
seidelbazhang can you get in there and ask for me? i am not registred, and i registred wrong when i tried to, so i have to wait 24 hours till next time i can register a nick00:20
bazhangseidel, #freenode for help with registering00:20
ActionParsnipjclbrt: if both interfaces have a default gateway set, it won't work. "2 defaults" makes no sense00:20
ActionParsnipjclbrt: the internal interface should have no default gateway set, only IP and subnet mask00:21
jclbrtActionParsnip, i have no clue where to find that info00:21
SeveasActionParsnip, "default gateway" is not an interface-specific setting00:21
ActionParsnipjclbrt: well you set the IP addresses on the interfaces right?00:21
MonkeyDustjclbrt: you know how to manually configure a network?00:21
ActionParsnipSeveas: it is00:21
SIFTUjclbrt: run that command I sent and we can see00:21
SeveasActionParsnip, no, it is not. See the output of the 'route' command.00:22
ActionParsnipSeveas: look at the config in /etc/network/interfaces onlin00:22
ntr0pyHow can i set correct subpixel rendering in FF7?        it uses RGB and i need BGR... that looks very ugly.00:22
Fudgejclbrt  also an iptables channel might be better for you, think it redirects to #netfolder00:22
ActionParsnipSeveas: I only have one interface on this box, so doesn't show it00:22
SeveasActionParsnip, you may be able to define it twice, but that doesn't mean there can actually be two00:22
SIFTUFudge: #netfilter maybe?00:22
jclbrtActionParsnip, my ETH0 which goes out to my modem is set to dhcp00:22

seidelwhy i cant install nvidia drivers? i get error after writing ''pacman -S nvidia nvidia-utils''     > :: nvidia-utils and libgl are in conflict. Remove libgl? [y/N] y error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies)00:24
SeveasActionParsnip, the problem with /etc/network/interfaces is that it tries to do too many things: set up ip addresses, configure routing, set up interfaces...00:24
ActionParsnipbktrak: If you can find the debs, you can install the kernel. I don't adives it though00:24
bazhangseidel, this is not arch support00:24

JesterI need some insight on how library version numbers work on Ubuntu.  For instance, I have the package "libsdl1.2debian-pulseaudio 1.2.14-6.1ubuntu3".  Clearly, it means libsdl 1.2.14 is installed.  However, the library file it contains is "/usr/lib/libSDL-1.2.so.0.11.3".  Where does the 0.11.3 come from ?00:25
jclbrtok pasted http://paste.ubuntu.com/700167/00:26
ActionParsnipSeveas: on this box not so much, on my lappy I use wicd, gotta love curses UI00:26
jclbrtThats what my interface configuration is00:26
jclbrtwhich should be right....00:26
ActionParsnipJester: probably a symlink00:26
MonkeyDustjclbrt: i see no gateway set00:27
jclbrtmonkeydust the machine is the gateway00:27
jclbrtit's a router00:27
Fudgejclbrt  you can use pastebinit like /exec cat filename | pastebinit to get the link directly in many irc clients00:27
SIFTUMonkeyDust: getting it from dhcp probably00:27
SeveasMonkeyDust, eth0 dhcp, dhcp will set the gateway00:27
SIFTUjclbrt: have you pasted your routing table yet?00:27
jclbrti have no clue where to find my routing table00:27
Seveasjclbrt, the route command00:28
SIFTUjclbrt: I sent you the command00:28
SIFTUjclbrt: sudo apt-get install pastebinit -y && netstat -rn | pastebinit00:28
JesterActionParsnip: "/usr/lib/libSDL-1.2.so.0 -> libSDL-1.2.so.0.11.3".  "/usr/lib/libSDL-1.2.so.0.11.3: ELF 64-bit LSB shared object, x86-64, version 1 (SYSV), dynamically linked, stripped"00:28
SIFTUjclbrt: sudo apt-get install pastebinit -y && netstat -rn | pastebinit00:28
jclbrtsrry lots talking to me00:28
MonkeyDusti see static and dhcp00:28
jclbrtmonkeydust that is correct00:28
EnigmaticCoderCan anyone recommend a book on linux programming tools, programs such as gdb, gprof, and valgrind? A book covering all three (or some) is prefereable.00:28
jclbrtthe static interface is where the DHCP server runs on00:28
jclbrtthat needs no gateway00:28

thrilwayCan anyone help me pinpoint an issue I'm having with firefox's GUI?00:34
ActionParsnipJester: some apps expect specific filename like /usr/lib/libSDL-1.2.so.0 and if you don't have the file the app complains, so what you do is make a link to a different file so that the filename does exist. The file is essentially a COPY of the file it is linked to but costs zero extra storage, its only a link00:35

ActionParsnipJester: so if some app was looking for /usr/lib/libSDL-1.2.so.15  and you don't have it but /usr/lib/libSDL-1.2.so.0   des what is required, you can make another link and the app will run00:36

ubottuTor 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.

RP64well i used ubuntu in 2008-10  then now im trying to install ubuntu onto my new computer, but , it won't work because of nvidia drivers02:04
MonthOLDpickleI have a really old XP Pro computer that won't boot into xp and constant reboot02:04
RoDiMuS-XRP64: Mint did not really impress me much, its a bit plain02:04
MonthOLDpickleI am trying to run a livecd ubunto 11.04, but the computer may be too old its been doing the ubuntu 11.04 with dots for a good 7 minutes so far02:05
Apple5how do i run unp02:05
qinMonthOLDpickle: Then you would want to have xubuntu live CD to test it.02:05
RP64RoDiMuS-X:  yea the screenshots look plain lol02:05
MonthOLDpicklehow can I get older linux to see if it boots into livecd02:05
RoDiMuS-XRP64: I am one for eye candy and simplicity so I stick with Ubuntu02:06
qinMonthOLDpickle: or Damn Small Linux or Puppy.02:06
RP64ActionParsnip:  hey i appreciate the help before do you still wanna help me out with the nvidia stuff ?02:06
RoDiMuS-XRP64: I had driver issues with I used the ATI drivers, so I switched to the generic and everything works fine02:06
qinRP64: Did you try to run live session?02:06
RP64qin: oh man you have no idea how complicated it got haha02:07

RP64qin: well yeah live session works no problem but as soon as I login to my installed ubuntu it just goes black screen, tried all these methods like adding boot methods etc. none of them work even though they should ,02:07
RP64qin: so new idea is to somehow go on liveCD and then download the Nvidia drivers and then transfer them onto the installed ubuntu02:07

roddI have a silly question for good users. I'm runing a web server locally and have set all my web files to user USR:www-data - However whenever I upload a file, its ownership is set to www-data:www-data - How can I set to USR:www-data or do something else that doesn't keep me from reading files from my browser?03:31

OnryoThe whole concept of ppa seems very unsafe.03:44

Onryomaxximus, oh yeah I forgot about that windows thing. Yeah Linux reads FAT32 with no problems.03:47
maxximusOnryo: haha03:48

Onryomaxximus seems there are a few Windows users left on this earth. Knew I would find something =D04:03
dsnyderscsemple, Depending on settings, linux hold writes in cache memory until it is flushed.  Safely removing forces a flush.  Windows does similar things.  So unless you safely remove or unmount a drive, you might the drive before everything gets written to it.  You could wind up corrupting the card.04:03

RP64ActionParsnip:  hey im just trying that articles thing now , just to tell you all igot out of that article was how to mount the ubuntu installation04:10
StravOn ubuntu 11.04, using unity's launcher set to auto-hidden was manageable: since most applications (browser's back button for instance) place several important elements on the left of the screen, when maximized, you could still manage to use these elements without triggering the launcher by setting the launcher's trigger region to be at the top left of the screen. Since only the dash button was in this area, there was no reason for your04:10
csemplehow do I get a sd-card to just work without having to change permissions and go to the command terminal to open up04:10
Stravcursor to be there except if you'd wish to either launch dash or trigger the launcher - it made sense. Now that the current window's close, minimize and maximize buttons have been place in this area (and that for some reason, the launcher's trigger region fails to respond properly when set to this area on 11.10 ), you don't have any way of using your application without risking to trigger the launcher without wanting it to. The only04:10
Stravspace left would be the bottom left corner but that would be absolutely counter-productive since most people sort their frequently accessed applications top to bottom and not the inverse.04:10

ubottuLAMP is an acronym for Linux-Apache-MySQL-PHP. However, the term is often used for setups using alternative but different software, such as Perl or Python instead of PHP, and Postgres instead of MySQL. For help with setting up LAMP on Ubuntu, see  https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ApacheMySQLPHP - See also the Server CD installation process (different in Edgy+)04:25
WilGilurlin2u, I believe that there is a set of reserved bits on all usb flash drives that contain information about the brand, size, and the fact that the device is a removable flash drive.  When the startup disk creator loaded the boot loader and created the persistence partition it flips the bits that denote that it is a flash drive so that a full install can be performed.04:25

RP64ActionParsnip:  hey so that article you sent me , i read it and i see what you mean, all its telling me is how to mount the drive with ubuntu on it though, isn't it ?04:33
jammiesAREonyay by then there will another LTS release04:34
jammiesAREoni had a ubuntu update that screwed some of my vmware servers04:34
pLpYes, probably at 2013, or something like that04:34
jammiesAREonactually in all fairness it was a linux kernel update04:34
jammiesAREonso not entireley ubuntu's fault04:35
RP64ActionParsnip:  like I've had ubuntu installed on my machine for 3 days and I can't get it working I am so .... deflated about it or like, not angry but just ugh lol i  guess you gotta pay this price for better performance + security in an OS04:35
pLpTrue Dat04:35
ActionParsnipRP64: you mount the system partition and you can chroot to it04:35
jammiesAREonRP64 wats the issue?04:36
ActionParsnipRP64: a wired link makes life a tonne easier04:36
RP64ActionParsnip:  does this thing tell me how to chroot though I don't see that in it04:36
RP64jammiesAREon:  it's a long long issue he helped me out with yesterday for like 4 hours and we still cant fix it, nvidia issues with ubuntu 11.04 on my qosmio x30004:36
ActionParsnipRP64: you need to mount the partition, bind the 3 folders then chroot04:36
jammiesAREonoh good luck04:36
jammiesAREonthat sounds like a GUI thing04:36
pLpGUI thing?04:37
jammiesAREonlol i've been pretty out of the loop with a GUI lately04:37
pLpChroot is in terminal04:37
RP64jammiesAREon:  lol thx u 204:37
RP64ActionParsnip:  OK im mounting04:37
RP64ActionParsnip:  do you happen to know what /mnt/myroot should be replaced with? myroot??04:38
jammiesAREonno... plp i mean i only use a command line as of late, so I know nothing about anything when it comes to nvidia stuff as I dont have the need for nvidia graphics drivers or any of that watchmacallits04:38
pLpOh I see it04:38
pLpI mean04:38
pLpATI works better with Ubuntu04:38
pLpIn fact04:38
pLpWith mostly Linux Distributions04:38
jammiesAREoni thought he was having hardrive issues lol  like mounting or something, i dunno i wasnt reading04:38
jammiesAREonATI has native ubuntu drivers by now ya?04:39
ActionParsnipRP64: mount to /mnt and you'll be ok04:39
pLpAlways has trouble with Nvidia04:39
pLpI guess not04:39
ActionParsnipjammiesAREon: needs updates and cant get a wired link for some reason, but gets a link in liveCD so can use that in a chroot04:39
jammiesAREoni see now04:40
jammiesAREonthat makes sense04:40
pLpI has a netbook with a Hackint0sh and the Natty04:40
jammiesAREonso it's a NIC issue?04:40
pLpAnd their graphic board card it's an ATI04:40

RP64ActionParsnip:  which 3 folders were you talking about? there were folders involved?04:42
RP64ActionParsnip:  how do I bind 3 folders04:42
RP64i typed in command $ sudo mount /dev/sda5 /mnt04:42
RP64oh hold on..... the rest of the instructions are what you meant right04:43
urlin2uWilGil, you can probably wipe the whole usb, I has a sandisk thta was a problem, nut on the web was a way of removing the firmware.04:43
ActionParsnipRP64: RP64 then use: sudo mount --bind /dev /mnt/dev04:43
RP64oh OK, sorry I didn't write down those things from yesterday04:43
RP64oh well OK here goes04:43
RP64ActionParsnip:  OK I used that command , hmm did that do it ?04:44
ActionParsnipRP64: did you get any output from the command?04:44
ActionParsnipRP64: great, now press up cursor and change the words 'dev' for 'sys'04:45
RP64haha oh OK04:45
RP64done , also no output04:45
ActionParsnipRP64: then same again but change it to 'proc'   obviously without the quotes04:45

pLpGood night04:46
ActionParsnipRP64: ok then run:  sudo chroot /mnt04:46
WilGilurlin2u, thanks i am familiar with that that is the sandisk u3 utility built into the firmware of the disk controller.  Mine is a pny specifically chosen because it is a very generic usb drive.  There has to be a way to fix theis from linux.  I am pretty much done with windows.  I still have one computer at home running windows and if all else fails i will try some of the usb partition...04:46
WilGil...utilities for windwos that i dug up.  But I plan on spending the rest of the night trying to figure out how to do this from linux04:46
pLpSorry does'nt help.04:46
HoNgOuRuwhen I type that it requests a passphrase04:46

RP64ActionParsnip:  hey I'll pastebin it to you04:49
ActionParsnipRP64: coolio04:49

mattwj2002hey everyone04:52
RP64qin: is that strange04:53
zykotick9ActionParsnip, re:RP64 "sh: cannot create /dev/null: Directory nonexistent" that's really weird04:53
RP64zykotick9: oh is it, do you think my installation of ubuntu is faulty or something ?04:53
zykotick9RP64, ?04:54
RP64zykotick9: ???? because you said that error is weird04:54
mattwj2002does anyone have any suggestions for a good bluetooth or other type of wireless mini keyboard with touchpad?04:54

RP64zykotick9:  lol oh. dang.04:54
urlin2umattwj2002, you might try #hardware04:55
ActionParsnipRP64: do you have /home on a seperate partition?04:55
ActionParsnipRP64: in the installed OS?04:55
RP64ActionParsnip:  I have an extended partition that hosts the installed OS on 2 sub partitions04:55
soreauurlin2u: I don't think #hardware redirects to ##hardware..04:56
WilGilurlin2u: this is bizzar.  I just stuck the flash drive in another machine to see if it would boot it and it did (as i expected).  Pulled it out and popped it into my desktop, upon which i was installing test disk and it automounted and popped up on the desktop.  Thanks for all of your help.04:56
RP64ActionParsnip: I mean I haven't even been able to log into the ubuntu OS even once so I don't think I've put the /home onto a seperate partition because I followed pretty much default settings for installation04:56

RP64ActionParsnip:  that sudo nano/etc/hosts gave it too05:12

Glitchywell shit...05:14
RP64Glitchy:  Well it's that my ubuntu install wont detect my nvidia display card so it blackscreens after logging in05:14
zykotick9ActionParsnip & RP64 if the hostname is messed up, sudo is probably broken05:14
Glitchyah, totally different issue than what mines doing05:14
Glitchyhow do you clean install ubuntu? is it basically the same as windows05:15
urlin2umlatelcom, you might ask at #freenode05:15

Glitchycouldnt get network manager to recognize the conf files so i tried installing in root, it froze in terminal for more than an hour and i finally forced closed...05:17
WilGilRP64, ActionParsnip, I don't mean to butt in, but have you tried booting with nomodeset05:17
RP64WilGil: yeah man it didn't work05:17
urlin2umlatelcom, np, hope that woks.05:17

RP64hahah wow where'd parsnip go05:17
Glitchyesheep you get all that?05:18
esheepGlitchy: yep got that, did u completely remove openvpn?05:19
Glitchyno...honestly still trying to figure out the ubuntu style05:19
Glitchywanted to get the vpntunnel working...but i think i may just have to uninstall it all...05:20
Glitchyill go do all that stuff...be back later05:20
WilGilRP64, is that a pci card or an integrated card?05:21
esheepGlitchy: not sure what the issue is but i would go into synaptic package manager and choose the complete removal for openvpn - at least that might get you back to normal05:21
RP64wilgil: its nvidia geforce05:21
RP64wilgil: BTW if you were following our convo, adding the line to the hosts file actually solved 1 of the 2 errors it kept repeating , the "unable to resolve hostname ubuntu" one05:22
RP64WilGil: but "no tty present and no askpass program specified" keeps happening when I try to update the driver05:22
RP64WilGil: Any ideas? lol , I'll take any05:23
WilGilRP64, I only caught some of your conv05:23
WilGilRP64, are you working off of a live cd chrooted05:23
RP64WilGil:  Oh, well basically my installation of ubuntu won't recognize my Nvidia card, so , everytiem I login it blackscreens, we tried nomodeset and also nouveau.=1 thing, both didnt work05:24
RP64WilGil:  and yea it's live cd chrooted05:24

RP64esheep: Dangit! I like ubuntu its like sexier than a Mac and windows is just ugh , even though mine is really secure + safe , and is running fast, i still dislike it05:29
linuxuz3ryour ubuntu05:29
WilGilMax229: suspend powers down most of the computer except ram, hibernate shuts down the whole computer and saves ram contents to hard drive05:29
linuxuz3rubuntu is sexy05:29
Max229WilGil: Which is better?05:29
linuxuz3rthe best05:29
esheepRP64: did you actually get to install the nvidia drivers or did it not get that far?05:30
RP64esheep: that's what im trying to do now, it wont let me through chroot for some reason05:30
WilGilMax229, depends, suspend wakes up faster, but uses more power, hibernate takes the same amount of time as a reboot, but saves your spot and of course uses less power05:30
RP64esheep: I run sudo apt-get update and it tells me "sudo: no tty present and no askpass program specified05:31
esheepRP64: what version of ubuntu?05:31
Max229suspend sometimes does not display the logon screen though and simply does not work :(05:31

mike_srrp64, when did u install the os?05:31
WilGilMax229, what kind of computer is it desktop or laptop05:32
RP64mike_sr: 3 days ago and been trying to fix this ever since, first tried through booting going to grub, pressing E and adding codelines to try nomodeset and nouveau.=1 thing and they both didn't work05:32
esheepRP64: perhaps its a 11.04 issue - unity screwed a lot up IMHO05:32
RP64mike_sr: now trying this and it gives me this error while chrooting05:32
RP64esheep: you're not using 11.04?05:32
RP64esheep: I haven't used ubuntu for more than a year and came back to it just now and get all this, lol05:33
mike_srrp64, try running the update manager to get the updates05:33
esheepRP64: you could try maverick 10.10 - thats what i use05:33
Max229WilGil: I have not tried hibernate yet, but suspend only works half the time and when it does work it takes awhile for the logon screen to popup.  This is a very fast computer. Hardware speed should not be the problem.05:33
lauratikaRP64: yes your rigth... but i was listening this afternoon no proeblems at all05:33
lauratikasounds a bot weird05:33
RP64mike_sr: that's what im trying, thing is it wont let me login to my ubuntu anyways that's the whole proble, because it blackscreens upon login, and now im on livecd trying to chroot update it and gives me weird errors when i try05:33

RP64mike_sr: no i think i might have to which'll suck05:34
lauratikarestart pulseaudio via killall and still no changes05:34
Max229WilGil: Yes, but only for video05:34
mike_srrp64, if u have anything saved on it that u wana keep, save it on an external, or a disc05:35
RP64mike_sr: nope got nothing havent been able to use it at all since i installed it 3 days ago lol05:35
WilGilMax229, Are you comfortable with navigating your bios?05:35
RP64mike_sr: mostly using Vista which I hate I mean who likes vista??? or windows at all , it's just bad05:35
Max229WilGil: I can do most things with it, yes05:36
RP64mike_sr:  but I do applaud bill gates on his tactics of earning lots of cash05:36
mike_srrp64, as soon as it reboots, after the install, run the update manager under system/administration05:36
RP64mike_sr: Well that's assuming that I can login at all right05:36
mike_srrp64, may i pm u?05:37
RP64mike_sr: yea why not05:37
WilGilMax229, many of the ones that i have worked with have a power managment setting.  You may want to google the options given in your bios and Ubuntu and be sure that you are using the optimal settings.05:38
A_JHey All, I've Installed a new sounc Card Create BLaster, problem is volume is very dim on headphones, anyway i can increase it.05:38
Max229Alright.  I will play with it and see what happens. Thanks.05:39
WilGilMax229, some just have something like suspend to ram disable or enable and some give you different leves to choose S1, S305:39

A_Jokie doin it now05:44
soreauA_J: 2) mixer panel for alsa05:44
IdleOneA_J: you use the arrow keys to move around05:44
soreauA_J: and 'm' to (un)mute tracks05:44
RP64ActionParsnip: Hey you here05:44
A_Jwhat should i do now05:44
IdleOnedepends, what have you done?05:44
A_Jnothing yet05:45
esheepRP64: got any further?05:45
RP64esheep:  not at all, lol, i googled this error and most of it is for red hat stuff that doesn't make sense to me, and for ubuntu it's people with completely diferent problems and none of them solved it05:45
IdleOneA_J: ok with the left/right arrow keys move to the headphones line (should turn red) then up/down to adjust the volume.05:45
A_Jthey are  6 colums IdleOne move all to red ?05:46
IdleOneyou have six columns labeled Headphones?05:46
soreauA_J: F6 to change devices.. make sure you've selected the one for your headphones05:46
esheepRP64: yeah its like that sometimes - i would try a copy of 10.10 and see if that works05:47
RP64esheep: are you on 10.10 right now05:47
A_Jsoreau: no headphones there05:47
esheepand i have a 9500 gt card05:47
RP64esheep: did you try 11.04 what'd you think between the two as in comparison? and also do you think if I used 10.10 it'd be less secure/ usefull ?05:47
esheepRP64: no issues at all05:47
RP64esheep: well I mean besides the fact that 11.04 is useless for me at this point lol05:47
RP64esheep:  10.10 is the longterm release right ?05:47
A_JIdleOne: can you have a look via vnc ?05:48
soreauA_J: How/where do you connect your headphones?05:48
esheepRP64: ive tried 11.04 on a few laptops and quite frankly hated it05:48
A_Jinto the sound card soreau05:48
soreauA_J: Make sure you're using an output appropriate for headphones and not line out05:48
esheepRP64: always issues with 11.0405:49
IdleOneA_J: soreau can probably be of more help then I could. Also learn to trust yourself and not allow total irc strangers access to your machine :)05:49
A_Jok ty IdleOne05:49
A_Jsoreau: it's a 5.1 card. so i put it in the green jack05:49
soreauA_J: Yes, I would not recommend remote access between strangers under any circumstances05:49
seidellhow do i install themes from http://xfce-look.org ?05:49
esheepRP64: 10.10 is not LTS, 10.04 is though05:49
RP64esheep: Oh, so you're saying all my probs im having are possibly due to 11.04 being too buggy hmm05:50
RP64esheep: so 10.10 is perfectly safe to use right its not like running a version from 4 years ago or something05:50
soreauA_J: The green output is typically the main output.. so make sure to turn up the master and pcm volumes in alsamixer05:51
esheepRP64: its possible but cant be too sure05:51
esheepRP64: 10.10 is fine to use05:51

Cojo1Hello, I am having trouble burning an ISO to a USB disk05:51
Cojo1When I use that start up disk creator and choose the .iso I have, nothing happens05:52
urlin2uCojo1, whats the ISO?05:52
soreauA_J: Does F6 show more than one card?05:52
RP64esheep: haha, nice . So its sort of like 11.04 is ubuntu's vista, and 11.10 will be their windows705:52
esheepRP64: you could even try a recent beta of 11.10 - who knows you're problem might not arise with that new one...05:52
Cojo1@urlin2u the .iso is of openSUSE 11.405:53
A_Jtwo soreau05:53
rebornyou need to burn the CD.05:53
seidellhow do i install themes from http://xfce-look.org ?05:53
A_Jnvidia and Ca015005:53
urlin2uCojo1, the disv creator mainly does ubuntu loading, try unetbootin.05:53
Cojo1Ok, I would burn a disk but my optical drive does not work with ubuntu :(05:53
esheepRP64: remember LTS versions should be "rock solid" the rest is really testing - although generally stable and fine05:54
rebornurl, i have once tried that unetbootin, it don't work, so it is only CD.05:54
RP64esheep: wait , 11.10 is a long term release too?05:55
urlin2uCojo1, http://www.pendrivelinux.com/usb-suse-flash-drive-install/05:55
A_Jsoreau: well ?05:55
rebornno, it is 12.0405:55
esheepRP64: no, next one is 12.0405:55
soreauA_J: Try all the output jacks on the card and test the headphones with a known working audio device05:55
urlin2uCojo1, sorry I didn't notice that this was for a full install.05:56
A_Jit works fine with speakers soreau just not with headphones05:56
soreauA_J: Your speakers may have a built-in amplifier..05:56
RP64esheep:  So what's LTS mean?05:56
soreau! lts | RP6405:56
ubottuRP64: LTS means Long Term Support. LTS versions of Ubuntu will be supported for 3 years on the desktop, and 5 years on the server. The current LTS version of Ubuntu is !Lucid (Lucid Lynx 10.04)05:56
A_Jyes they do soreau05:57
Cojo1@Urlin it also requires me to burn a disk. If I could fix my optical drive I could burn a DVD, that would be great. It's a bluray combodrive though... IDK where to get drivers that will work with it05:57
RP64esheep: ohright, yea... duh05:57
soreauA_J: How many outputs do you have on the card and what colors are they?05:57
esheepRP64: i assume its a laptop you are using?05:58
RP64esheep: OK I'll try 10.10 or 10.04 but if the next release is 10.10 then wouldn't that mean I just have to wait a couple of weeks for it to be released?05:58
RP64i mean 11.1005:58
RP64for next releasename05:58
RP64esheep:  yeah its a laptop but a desktop replacement laptop qosmio gaming pc05:59
Cojo1Does anyone have any ideahow I might be able to fix my optical drive? When I try to burn a disc it does the checksum and everything but once the actual burning is about to start i get an error05:59
RP64esheep:  so you cant carry it ANYWHERE its like 30 pounds05:59
urlin2uCojo1, it appears to be kinda tricky, I put it on a disc as well when I was trying it out, this is a thumb install but requires a disc as well. http://www.ehow.com/how_6871881_install-suse-flash-drive.html05:59
A_Jsoreau: sorry dced05:59
Cojo1If I could make a disk I wouldn't need to use my USB drive!05:59
Cojo1@ Urlin does your knowledge extend to magical healing powers of my optical drive?06:00
Planewalker_AlphQuick, noobish question: How do you set up ssh? I have read several articles on this, but I keep getting an error which says "No route to host".06:00

urlin2uCojo1, no but you may have no choice in finding a way to do it, say like using another computer to use a disc, and load the thumb.06:01
Cojo1So brutal....06:01
Cojo1What's the terminal command to display your optical drive info?06:01

lorddeltaLooking for advice on why my devices are being archives when they connect to my system...so far I've determined p7zip is being run by init when a device connects, I did a quick man init, and have so far not found any reference being made to p7zip in my /etc/init scripts directory. I'm running Ubuntu 11.04.06:32
soreaubrombomb: Is this through ssh or what?06:32
brombombssh, it's a headless box06:33
Flannelbrombomb: Have you been doing any hostname fiddling recently? (around when this started)06:33
soreauYes, when did this start? (did it ever work?)06:33
Flannelbrombomb: If you've removed the [myhostname] line from /etc/hosts, sudo will take forever (it's trying to look up the hostname and the N second delay is it finally timing out)06:34
brombombIt was working great until a week ago06:34
soreaubrombomb: What did you do that broke it?06:35
brombombhaven't touched it06:35

brombombFlannel:  I think thats it06:41
soreaubrombomb: Don't guess, check ifconfig06:41
brombomb inet addr:
Flannelbrombomb: Well, that's not it.  That line should be a localhost IP, not your current IP.06:42

lorddeltaActionParsnip: Mmm www.facebook.com yay ultimate adblocker :P06:47
tonyyarussoGuest74778: Normally you woudn't have to do anything.  So, your question is actually how to make it recognize YOUR DVD drive, which apparently doesn't work properly.06:48
lorddelta(in the hosts file that is)06:48
soreaustevecam: Potentially.. but you could have several problems to work out06:48
tonyyarussolorddelta's productivity just increased 600%.06:48
stevecamsoreau, a breif example?06:48
ActionParsnipSoreau: pages with ads in usually fail to load as the browser trys to get data from localhost which fails, as it doesnt exist06:48
Guest74778Yeah, that's what I meant.06:49
soreaustevecam: First you'd have to tell the filesystem to load correctly in /etc/fstab and mtab06:49
ActionParsniplorddelta: exactly06:49
stevecamWell, that's understandable06:49

soreauGuest74778: It should already be recognized if it's installed correctly and the bios 'sees' it06:50

Guest74778Okay guys, this is the burner I have.  L12-1312 OEM06:57
soreauwmnd: At what point does it fail?06:58
tonyyarussoGuest74778: are you having trouble with just the burning functionality, or reading as well?06:58
ActionParsnipWmnd: did you md5 test the iso you downloaded?06:58
Guest74778I have both Ubuntu (11.04) and Windows 7 (64 bit) installed.  Windows uses the drive completely fine, but Ubuntu doesn't recognize it at all, for some reason.07:00
wmndsoreau, it simply boots to windows straight away07:01
wmndActionParsnip, yes I tested it and the iso is fine07:01
soreauwmnd: Are you actually telling it to boot from usb?07:01
tonyyarussoGuest74778: is there a product name for this in addition to the number?07:01
soreauGuest74778: What makes you think it isn't recognized?07:02
wmndsoreau, I hope so I've set the boot order to bootable device, then HD, and also I tried simple reboot and running the installer in the usb pen and order it to reboot from there07:02
Guest74778I guess the product name would be Lite-On?07:03
ActionParsnipGuest74778: does it show in: sudo lshw -C drive; sudo lshw -C disk07:03
lorddeltaSo...init handles everything through conf files/scripts, but it looks like I need to learn how to hook into system events...07:03
wmndsoreau, or is there some other way to specify that I want it to boot from usb?07:03
lorddeltaTo figure out who is starting p7zip07:03
tonyyarussoGuest74778: that's the brand07:03
Guest74778I say it doesn't recognize it because when trying to get vbox running earlier, the dvd drive wasn't an option to load my windows 7 disk from, and upon further inspection, I realized that movies won't play on Ubuntu either.07:03
ActionParsnipWmnd: how did you put the data on the usb stick?07:03
Guest74778Does that help?07:04
ActionParsnipGuest74778: if you run my command, is it in the output?07:05
soreauwmnd: On most systems you can set the boot order but also optionally hit a key when it boots to manually see and select which options there are to boot from07:05
wmndActionParsnip, Universal USB Installer07:05
wmndsoreau, oh... I did not know that, I'm going to google for it07:05

soreauwmnd: Usually it will tell you what key to hit on the bios splash screen07:07
Guest74778Soreau: No.  Not in places.  i'm not sure what nautilus is.07:07
Guest74778ActionParsnip: Is that one command, or two separated at the ; ?07:07
soreau<ActionParsnip> Guest74778: does it show in: sudo lshw -C drive; sudo lshw -C disk <-- what about this?07:07

ubottupakete: If you're having problems with sound, click the Volume applet, then Sound Preferences, and check your Volume, Hardware, Input, and Output settings.  If that fails, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Sound - https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SoundTroubleshooting - http://alsa.opensrc.org/DmixPlugin - For playing audio files,  see !players and !mp3.09:15

paketeyes i did... (( i checked prefs09:16
benoliver999pakete: Is it system wide or just in one application?09:16
paketebenoliver999, it looks like sound is properly working everywhere.,..but i can hear no sound - that is the problem09:17
paketei can adjust volume etc... but no sound is actually heard09:18
benoliver999pakete: Have you tried it in more than one piece of software?09:18
paketewhat do u mean?09:18
paketei tried it everywhere... there is no sound... but sound card seems to be working properly, while it appears that the sound is muted, but i unmuted it many times back and forth09:20
benoliver999pakete: Have you look in additonal drivers?09:20
paketewhat can it be? maybe it is mechanical problem? yes i did there is only Realtek driver pack, but i could not install it  ((09:21
paketeso Ubuntu is running it via its own drivers i think09:22

OmegakenshinHello, im a newbie in ubuntu, could anyone tell me, if I download some programs to install manually, where is the folder to copy the info??09:24
MasterOfDisasterOmegakenshin: depends on what form they come in.09:24
lerrickwell btw is vmware free?09:25
MasterOfDisasterlerrick: they provide a free version IIRC, VMware Player09:25
JokesOnYou77there is a free version, yes09:25
Omegakenshinits the sublime text 209:26
lerrickthanks im really enjoying using linux now09:26
MasterOfDisasterOmegakenshin: If you need it to be available to multiple users, put it in /opt or /usr/local else put it in your user's $HOME09:27
Omegakenshinjust copy the folder there will add the software??09:27
MasterOfDisasterOmegakenshin: binaries are found in linux by looking in the folders specified in $PATH09:28
Omegakenshinits says is not allowed to copy files in that location09:29
Omegakenshininside bin maybe_09:29
MasterOfDisasterOmegakenshin: folders reserved for third-party binaries are /opt and /usr/local (i.e. apt shouldn't put anything there)09:29
MasterOfDisasterOmegakenshin: /opt and /usr/local may only be written to by root09:29
Omegakenshinim in usr/local09:30
Omegakenshinhow do i get access to root??09:30
hellofooMasterOfDisaster: is there a tutorial or guide that explains all thsoe ?09:30
alex--How to switch back to gnome 2 on 11.10?09:30
Corey!root | Omegakenshin09:30
ubottuOmegakenshin: Do not try to guess the root password, that is impossible. Instead, realise the truth... there is no root password. Then you will see that it is 'sudo' that grants you access and not the root password. Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo09:30

StevenRfarrukhjon: can you be more precise?10:43
MarkGreenwoodHello ! :-)10:44
StevenRfarrukhjon: the website sells.... software and services?10:44
farrukhjonStevenR:  Yes, that such a situation, if I want to distribute my software in boxes with mysql (for example), I must obtain a commercial license, but if you give via the web, how to be ?10:46
zaxonspoxfarrukhjon, if its free you can use LAMP, if you will get cash from customers, you will need license at least for MySQL10:46
farrukhjonzaxonspox:  even if it is a web - application?10:47
StevenRfarrukhjon: where does it say that you need a commercial license to use mysql to sell software? Or do you mean distributing mysql for commercial gain?10:48

dr_willisyou mean 10.04.2 ?10:53
MarkGreenwoodOh god, sorry, I didn't I had to ask questions about Oneiric in #ubuntu+110:53
Chheapshotthat would make more sense10:54
Name141dr_willis: yeah, 10.04.210:55
Name141I'm not sure why there is a 10.04.3 already. There's only about 200 MBs of updates.10:55
Name141Chheapshot: Cause I want the LTS to replace XP tomorrow.10:56
Name141when I bother with replacing it.10:56
ChheapshotName141: Yeah just was wondering why not use the 10.04.3 :D10:56
Sidewinder1Name141, I prefer LTS, as well.10:56
dr_willisnever noticed there was a 10.04.310:57
Name141Sidewinder1: I just wanted a more up to date OS, since the other one is the 'gaming machine' now.  , Chheapshot: cause it's 600+ MBs and It's almost 6 AM (when my unlimited hours stop)10:57
farrukhjonStevenR: I create a project to automate the school, and my project is working on LAMP from this maybe I'll get fees and commissions. Do I need to get with the vendors of these products commercial licenses.10:58
dr_willisevery 6 mo ro so they do a point release perhaps?10:58
* Name141 sighs as hughesnet FAP10:58
StevenRfarrukhjon: depends what software you're including, and how precisely you include it. Lets say you include some GPL code. You can charge money for doing so. But you need to obey the rest of the license too, and include the source (or provide access to it)11:00
Sidewinder1farrukhjon, I know that there is some FOSS that includes mysql, so I doubt that you should have any concern; that being said, I'm certainly not an attorney, nor do I play one on TV. :D11:02
nmvictori get this error when trying to install samba4 : samba.provision.InvalidNetbiosName: The name ''MOINS-ASPIRE-5734Z'' is not a valid NetBIOS name. why is this the case?11:05
Uatecthe machine namei s too long11:05
Uateci think the limit is 15 chars11:05
StevenRfarrukhjon: also, beware of any linking rights. You're gonna have to list the software you're going to include, find out it's license, and then once you have a list of licenses, work out how to comply with those. Like if you link commercial software against the QT toolkit, you need a commercial license from Trolltech.11:05
nmvictorUatec: what should i do?11:05
Uatecnmvictor, change the hostname of your machine to something shorter11:05
Uatecand try again11:05
Uateci believe the 'host' command will let you do that11:06
Uatecbut it's not permanent i don't think11:06
Uatecanybody else know?11:06
nmvictoris it safe to edit /etc/hostname or is their a way that wont break my configs?11:06
farrukhjonMy clients are schools and parents of schoolboys who pay me for what I give them a platform (site) from which they receive information about their children, and they agreed to pay for it, the question is: is it commerce, and if it is commercial whether I should share with canonocal or oracle?11:06
nmvictorUatec: see my message above please11:06
StevenRfarrukhjon: so... you're providing a web service... do they recieve a copy of the software? do they just receive an account to view information through the site you've provided?11:07
zaxonspoxfarrukhjon, yes, it is commerce, cant you use mSQL ie?11:08
Chheapshotnmvictor: edit /etc/hostname11:08
Chheapshotfor permanent chance11:08
farrukhjonzaxonspox:  use as database server11:10
MichealH nyuszika7h11:10
MichealHWrong Window11:10
farrukhjonStevenR: they do not receive a copy of something, they just use of servies of commercial site11:11
StevenRfarrukhjon: in that case, I don't think you need to pay any license fees.11:11
oCeanfarrukhjon: it seems you're getting more offtopic here.11:12
StevenRfarrukhjon: I'd check the license for MySQL though. apache, and the most of ubuntu should be fine (GPL and LGPL software is fine for your use-case)11:12
Uatecfarrukhjon, where are you from?11:12
StevenRfarrukhjon: /j #gpl11:13
bazhangUatec, why does that matter11:13
=== danielcg25 is now known as Danielcg25
StevenRfarrukhjon: #gnu is a decent place for licensing Qs too.11:13
Uatecnot really, just interested in the name11:13

farrukhjonUatec: afganistan11:14
Sidewinder1farrukhjon, I agree with StevenR Not only that, if a huge corp. thinks that you have minutely crossed the line, into a gray area, their usual response is a "Cease and Desist Order." I would, therefore, say Go For It!11:14

RP64Hi I'm wanting to get ubuntu 10.10 because I've heard it's better than 10.04, and 11.04 just doesn't work for me because it doesnt detect my nvidia drivers and ive tried all possible workarounds for 2 days straight11:24
RP64however when im on the ubuntu website it only provides 10.04 and 11.04 so is there no way to get 10.10 ?11:25
RP64anyone know about this? ?11:25
auronandace!10.10 | RP6411:25
ubottuRP64: Ubuntu 10.10 (Maverick Meerkat) was the thirteenth release of Ubuntu. Download http://releases.ubuntu.com/10.10/ - Release Info: http://www.ubuntu.com/getubuntu/releasenotes/101011:25
RP64auronandace:  wow thanks so much, i didn't know they kept all the releases online , how did you know to find that link do they not list it and you are just supposed to know that?11:26
auronandaceRP64: they encourage using either the latest release or the latest LTS11:26
RP64auronandace:  hey by the way, I have a intel centrino 2 processor but it's 64 bit, and it's saying to use 32 bit release for intel processors, but 64bit for AMD, but I'm not using AMD what should I make of this?11:27
Sidewinder1RP64, I'm assuming you enabled Restricted Drivers? As nvidia seems to support linux much better than, for instance ATI.11:28
auronandaceRP64: amd64 is for all 64bit processor (whether intel or amd)11:28
RP64Sidewinder1:  don't even get started, lol... i seriously spent 9 hours 2 days ago discussing and testing workarounsd with a liveCD boot and entering codes, NOTHING works even things that are supposed to11:28
RP64sidewinder1: it just goes to black screen on login, no offense tho thx for trying11:29
lariehow to partprobe/kpartx all extended partitions on loop?  http://dpaste.com/624857/11:29
auronandaceRP64: amd64 just happens to be the name of the 64 bit arch: x86_6411:29
lariei have only three primary and one extended11:29
lariebut i need all extended11:29
RP64auronandace:  Oh thanks i didn't know that, so i should still download the 64 bit , OK thx alot11:29
dr_willisRP64:  what is saying use  32 for intel? Intel 64bit cpus are using the amd 64 bit extensions...11:29
dr_willisRP64:  most of the time 32bit is reccomended. because it shoud work reguardless of what you have.11:29
ChheapshotRP64: have u tried 11.10?11:29
auronandaceRP64: no worries :)11:30
RP64Chheapshot: no i don't want to try a test version its not my thing to do that i mean i need some reliability11:30
RP64chheapshot: and im not good enough to rely on entering lots of code to fix things lol11:30
dr_willisI did find the 11.10 beta worked better for my amd and nvidia systems. :)  Which is a good sign for the future releases.11:30
ChheapshotRP64: U could atleast test the livecd of it? It releases soon anyway11:30
Sidewinder1RP64, Yes, and I apologize, I assumed that you tried that but you'd be surprised how many times something simple like that solves the problem. When it doesn't, you're right, it can be extremely frustrating.11:30
auronandaceChheapshot: in that case it is better to wait till release11:31
RP64chheapshot: i guess i could but i again just dont like testing out betas i mean i just dont see any reason to when stable ones are out11:31
grobda24where is the behaviour of the new scrollbar documented ?11:31
Jordan_Ularie: Please explain your end goal. One of those is actually a partition within a partition, which is almost certainly not what you intended.11:31
RP64sidewinder1: yea no problem you had no way to know what id tried or not lol11:32
larieJordan_U: i want to mount every partition from the image11:32
Jordan_Ularie: And I don't mean in the normal sense of logical partitions within extended. It's a primary partition containing a partition table and another primary partition.11:32
larieJordan_U: what?11:32
Sidewinder1RP64, Well, you did give me a clue with the "9 hours..." :D11:32
Jordan_Ularie: That is how I interpret "loop0p4p1".11:33
auronandaceJordan_U: the partition table is always at the beginning of a disk11:33
larieJordan_U: so i want loop0p4p2 and loop0p4p3 too11:33
Jordan_Uauronandace: You can have nested partition tables, it's just not a sane configuration.11:34
larieJordan_U: i do not have nested pt11:34
auronandaceJordan_U: oh, thanks for the info11:34
Jordan_Uauronandace: You're welcome.11:34
larieJordan_U: look at my paste there is sfdisk dump11:34
Jordan_Ularie: Can you pastebin the output of "sfdisk -d /dev/loop0p4" to confirm?11:35
larieJordan_U: paste from my first message http://dpaste.com/624857/11:36
Jordan_Ularie: That doesn't contain the output of "sudo sfdisk -d /dev/loop0p4".11:37

sivikjrljw, you are not providing enough information for us to help you and have you considered upgrading to 10.04 or 11.04?12:12
sivikjrljw, you just keep saying it won't install but then not provide any errors12:12
hoodoosi have a problem with core i3 processor when it works fine in live cd in switchable mode(i have 2 video cards) and doesn't work right after install, system always go to black screen :((12:12
asdjaputra3sivik (07:09:41 PM) jrljw: libopenal1 cant get installed.12:12
sivikasdjaputra3, thx12:13
hoodoosubuntu version is 11.0412:13
sivikjrljw, have you tried to install openal from the repos?12:13
sivikhoodoos, thats going to be a video problem not a processor problem12:13
sivikjrljw, did you install the dev for it?12:13
jrljwyes. i did.12:13
sivikjrljw, then you are still probably missing part of it12:13
hoodoossivik, i already installed kernel 3.0 it didn't help, what can I do? why it works in live cd and doesn't after install?12:13
sivikhoodoos, try using vesa drivers in the xorg.conf until you get your video drivers installed.12:14
jrljwim trying to update to the latest ubuntu.12:14
sivikI have the same problem with my ati card12:14
sivikjrljw, you probably cannot upgrade straight to the latest ubuntu, you might need to reload using the newest ubuntu12:14
Chheapshotvarikonniemi: Try changing the user-agent from chrome12:14
jrljwoh.. okay. i try12:14
asdjaputra3Chheapshot: and tell him how, please? :-D12:14
sivikhoodoos, have you changed to using vesa in xorg.conf and then load the video drives?  What kind of drivers do you have?12:15
sivikI mean video cards12:15
hoodoossivik, i wonder where can I get drivers for graphics intergrated in core i312:15

=== silentpapa is now known as Wulai
chrootasdjaputra3,  no , the revomebal disk didn't show up12:19
sivikhoodoos: The i915 kernel module comes as part of the intel driver (inside the xorg-x11-driver-video rpm)12:19
PsychoX75Sidewinder: well not yet.12:20
Chheapshotvarikonniemi: and for the user-agent maybe try this: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 5.1) AppleWebKit/535.2 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/15.0.872.0 Safari/535.212:20
Sidewinder1PsychoX75, This is an external HD, correct?12:20
PsychoX75Sidewinder: not really. It is based on a Raid system though12:20
sivikdr_willis, you around?12:21
PsychoX75So the OS will see him a bit 'funny'.12:21
Sidewinder1PsychoX75, NTFS or ext3/ext4?12:21
Sidewinder1PsychoX75, Regardless of file-system, it should show up in "Places", just click on it and it should mount.12:22
varikonniemiChheapshot, ok thanks12:22
Chheapshotvarikonniemi: altought if its only one download or site u need it for, u could just go to the site trhough a proxy wich removes useragent12:22
hoodoossivik, well, what ever i try to install from repos (when i do apt-cache search intel) tells me i already have this installed :)12:23
PsychoX75Sidewinder: yeah. The thing is. I want to put it in FSTAB because i need to share the HDD upon starting. And i need to map some programs to folders on it. And right now, each time Ubuntu reboots, it wont load the drive, meaning the programs wont work either.12:23
hoodoossivik, maybe I should dig in some other direction, like compare my curreny config with live cd config?12:24
hoodoosif only I knew what to compare..12:24
Sidewinder1PsychoX75, If you're trying to Auto-mount, perhaps you could try mounting the drive manually; then in terminal type sudo update -grub. That might work, but I'm not absolutely certain, it's worth a try.12:25
PsychoX75<--- a bit new.12:25
PsychoX75what is grub?12:25
PsychoX75"sudo update -grub"12:26

l3buive just installed ubuntu server... and ive setup static ip but im getting a message when i restart my network failed to bring up virbr0 which is my network adapater...12:35
Sidewinder1hoodoos, I would suspect that the default repos that come with 11.04 would be the best ones, for that version.12:35
l3bui can ping my ip i set tho so thats 1 step closer heh12:35
hoodoosSidewinder1, well, my problem is that livecd works but installed won't (12:36
hoodoosSidewinder1, i have no idea how to debug why it goes black screen after installation and works fine in live cd12:36

hoodoostrying this one ppa:xorg-edgers/ppa12:37
freedom07chroot, kernal updates?12:37
Sidewinder1hoodoos, Difficult to do from black screen but it sounds like a "Restricted Drivers" issue; it's a stumper that Live CD is OK, bit not the install.12:38
chrootfreedom07, update-managet and sudo apt-get upgrade12:38
Sidewinder1but, even.12:38
han_hi, im trying to change the device that grub is installed on. cant find anything online. does anyone know how to do this?12:40
Sidewinder1han_, Please be a little more specific.12:40
chrootfreedom07, i think so , it is kernal updates12:41
Sidewinder1han_, Perhaps sudo update -grub might work.12:41
chroothi, Sidewinder1 , can you told me the reason?12:42
hoodoosSidewinder1, installed some stuff from that egde repo, let's see if it helps :)12:42
Sidewinder1chroot, The reason for what?12:42
han_sidewinder1, i have 3 hdds, but my asus bios lets me boot only from one of them..in the ubuntu installation i installed grub on sda1 but i can only boot from sdb..so when i boot my pc, i have to pick sda1 manually. that's why i want to reinstall grub on sda1 so that grub loads automatically12:42
chrootwhen i update my sys , there are more files in /boot dir12:43
chroothan_, is your machine old?12:44
l3buive just installed ubuntu server... and ive setup static ip but im getting a message when i restart my network failed to bring up virbr0 which is my network adapater...12:44
han_chroot, not really..core2duo 955012:44
Seveasl3bu, virbr0 sounds like kvm, not a real network adapter12:44
han_chroot, + ASUS p5q deluxe..12:45
Sidewinder1han_, Grub is most definitely not my specialty; but you might try reinstalling to sdb1 or 2 or whatever; after backing everything up, of course.12:45
han_Sidewinder1, yea that's plan b..i actually hoped there was a solution that wouldn't involve reinstalling ubuntu12:46
Sidewinder1han_, There probably is; it's just that I am not certain the exact way... sorry.. :-(12:47
chroothan_, i got a way , if you install  ubuntu  server , it will let you chose which place you want to install grub , maybe , it will works12:47
ikoniayou don't need to re-isntall or use server12:48
ikoniathe desktop installer allows you to select where to install grub12:48
chrootikonia, how12:48
Sidewinder1ikonia, Many thanks!12:48
chrootwitch step of the way12:48
ikoniawhat ?12:48
chrootikonia, i mean when you install ubuntu , when the installer let you chose ?12:49
ikoniachroot: it asks you to accept the default or change it12:49
ikoniabut you still don't need to re-install12:50

glebihanikonia, chroot : as a matter of fact, I think the option has been removed from the installer in natty12:54
ikoniaglebihan: really, had sad and dissapointing12:54
ikoniastill doesn't mean you need to re-install, just re-apply grub from your current install12:54
c933103Anyone know could arm version of Ubuntu run Firefox?12:55
chroothow to re_appy ?12:55
ikoniasuggesting someone re-install to apply grub to a different hard disk is crazy, telling someone to use the server version to do so is even more crazy12:55
glebihanikonia, I agree with you. As far as I know, only the alternate CD still has this option12:56

glebihanchroot, you can remove some of them manually if you want to, I'd recommend always keeping at least 2 kernels installed13:01
chrootglebihan, manually revome means delete the file you don't want in /boot13:02

office1MonkeyDust: I didn't see any tutorials in that link13:40
Chheapshotcoops89: Yeah seems google wont help much either, atleast with mf820d13:40
Chheapshot!upgrade | lf13:41
ubottulf: For upgrading, see the instructions at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UpgradeNotes - see also http://www.ubuntu.com/desktop/get-ubuntu/upgrade13:41
ChheapshotNot sure how well 9.04 upgrades to 11.04 though. But i gues it should be fine?13:42
yeatslf: probably better to do a fresh install, since 9.10 is also out of support and that's a necessary step for upgrading13:43
coops89I'd like to speak to ubuntu developers/programmers. what channels would you recommend?13:44
amdx2this chanel13:45
auronandace!eol | lf13:47
ubottulf: End-Of-Life is the time when security updates and support for an Ubuntu release stop, see https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Releases for more information. Looking to upgrade from an EOL release? See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/EOLUpgrades13:47
coops89amdx2: so I'd like to contribute by adding support for my usb mobile broadband modem. where should I begin?13:47

Free_Libyahi all, teacher here...I have a couple of the very first dell mini 9's with ssd drives (4gb, but 3.5 gb or so usable) and while they will hold ubuntu on them...there is not much room left for the kids to store stuff.  Is there a better ubuntu derivative for kids that has smaller footprint and has browswer and maybe some kid games13:54
glebihanMode-M, unless you're still using grub 1, menu.lst is not used anymore13:54
MonkeyDustFree_Libya: try Edubuntu13:54
Mode-Mglebihan: i use grub 113:54
Free_LibyaAlso, I install these without a swap area.....I think Edubuntu will be too bloated.13:54
coz_Free_Libya,  i dont think edubuntu has a smaller footprint however it is targeted for kids and above13:54
Dollzis Github down?13:55
DollzI can not download any files13:55
Free_LibyaThe smaller footprint is the most important factor.....as after web browsing using Libreoffice writer is main program necessary.13:55
Dollzany body can download this ? https://nodeload.github.com/mrclay/minify/zipball/master13:55
glebihanDollz, seems to be working fine here13:56
hellofooikonia: from repo it downloaded mongo 1.6.3 whihc is pretty old. i want 2.0.013:56
ikoniahellofoo: why do you want 213:56
coz_Dollz,   in terminal  try  git clone  https://nodeload.github.com/mrclay/minify/zipball/master  let me try here hold on13:56
Dollzglebihan: tried from two locations , but can not "git" it13:57
hellofooikonia: 2.0.0 has wayyyy more improvemetns and bug fixes13:57
hellofoocompared to 1.6.313:57
coz_Dollz,  it doesnt seem to be pulling from git here13:57
rabbi1nale siktiya, elladru hogona ?13:57
ikoniahellofoo: such as ?13:57
hellofoowell, http://blog.mongodb.org/post/10126837729/mongodb-2-0-released13:57
Dollzcoz_: yeah :(13:57
MonkeyDustFree_Libya: maybe this link helps http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sugar_(GUI)13:57
ikoniahellofoo: no, I'm asking what's in 2.0 that you want/need13:58
coz_Dollz,   it may be termporarily down,,, wait a bit and try that command again13:58
glebihanDollz, apparently that link doesn't seem to work (my first answer was about github in general)13:58
Free_Libyathanks for link.  I'm also wondering about MeeGo13:58
Dollzglebihan: Ah k ,13:58
hellofooikonia: good question, i dont know. but i have been asked to use 2.0.0 :P13:59
hellofoofor the project.13:59
ikoniahellofoo: right, so you're going against the ubuntu package to use software for no reason13:59
glebihanDollz, are you sure that link is correct ?13:59
Dollzglebihan: pretty sure14:00
ikoniahellofoo: I don't believe that is a wise path to follow, more so if you wish to maintain compatability with other libraries and tools within the ubuntu repos14:00
ikoniahellofoo: changing version numbers for no reason is not a good method14:00
Dollzglebihan: https://github.com/mrclay/minify << here is the lib14:00
ikoniahellofoo: consider, the experience of the ubuntu developer team, could there possabily be a reason they have NOT upgraded the version14:00
glebihanDollz, yes I found it, and "git clone https://github.com/mrclay/minify.git" seems to work fine14:00
hellofooikonia: well, but i guess using newer software is better ? there is a difference of 1 year between 1.6.3 and 2 release14:01
Dollzglebihan: wow, let me try14:01
MonkeyDustFree_Libya: http://doudoulinux.org/web/english/index.html14:01
ikoniahellofoo: you guess wrong14:01
nuclearwormhello, let suppose we want to watch only the live stream on a web site without other things that may be slowing down connection. how do w e do that?14:01
Dollzglebihan: IT WORKS :)))14:01
glebihanDollz, nice :)14:01

srini_tell me some interesting packages in ubuntu15:14
ActionParsnipsrini_: openssh-server15:15
furyoshonenActionParsnip is this a problem with Flash?15:15
srini_wat s the use of it ActionParsnip15:15
ActionParsnipfuryoshonen: it just gives flash 11.0r1 64bit to math your 64bit flash15:15
ActionParsnipsrini_: its a veritable swiss army knife of abilities15:16
ActionParsnipfuryoshonen: sorry, to match your 64bit OS15:16
srini_list some of the interesting packages ActionParsnip15:17
ActionParsnipsrini_: urbanterror :)15:17
Gentoo64srini_, theres lots15:17
furyoshonenActionParsnip Man, I can't believe 6 years later 64bit is still giving me problems15:17
srini_tell some 5 to 10 ActionParsnip15:18
ActionParsnipfuryoshonen: the default is to use a wrapper, the ppa gives native 64bit flash, no problems15:18
ikoniayou don't need to use a PPA15:18
oCeansrini_: that's all a matter of personal opinion, how could we tell you?15:18
ikoniathe flashplugin-nonfree package in the main repo will provide a wrapper for 64bit15:18
ikoniathere is zero need to use a PPA15:18
ActionParsnipsrini_: what I think is interesting is probably different to what you think is interesting15:18
ActionParsnipikonia: the 64bit one runs cleaner :)15:19
ikoniaActionParsnip: no, it doesn't15:19
furyoshonenActionParsnip ok, so I have updated and run all the commands... should I run anything else?15:19
ikoniaActionParsnip: it depends on the hardware in the machine15:19
ActionParsnipikonia: it does it and and I can only call it as I see it, its helped loads of people in here and on launchpad with high CPU or crashing with flash15:19
ikoniaActionParsnip: sorry, it doesn't15:20
ikoniaActionParsnip: some people will have a better experience, others won't. it depends on the hardware15:20
ActionParsnipikonia: I call it as Ive seen it many times15:20
ikoniaActionParsnip: then don't15:20
ikoniathink it through15:20
ActionParsnipfuryoshonen: restart your browser and it will be ok15:20
ActionParsnipikonia: how do you mean?15:20
srini_ActionParsnip, gimp,xchat,minitube...these are all helpful packages...i am asking u like this...15:21
ikoniaActionParsnip: do a little research on it and you'll find pros/cons to both depending on the users setup, blindly recommending it because it worked for you isn't really helpful15:21
ActionParsnipikonia: why use flash -> wrapper -> browser    when you can just go   flash -> browser15:21
ikoniasrini_: https://help.ubuntu.com - read this for an introduction to ubuntu15:21
ikoniaActionParsnip: because it doesn't always work well for people15:21
Gentoo64srini_, some of mine are- transmission, gimp, xchat wireshark inkscape avidemux mplayer2 rubyripper cmus15:21
ikoniaActionParsnip: that's why15:21
ikoniaand at that time you've enabled a PPA15:21
ActionParsnipikonia: well how about we TRY it instead of blindly dismissing it, by the same token...15:21
glebihansrini_, there are about 30 000 packages in the repositories... how do you expect us to tell you 5 or 10 that are interesting ?15:21
ikoniaActionParsnip: no, because that point you've done it15:22
ikoniaActionParsnip: as I said, research and understand the limitations pros/cons to each15:22
ActionParsnipikonia: we can roll it back easily, its free to try15:22
oCeansrini_: as I said, it's a matter of opinion/taste. Do some research on the net, and decide what's useful for you to install15:22
Gentoo64why you so crazy about ppas here15:22
ActionParsnipikonia: why not try something just to see if it works better or worse to see if it helps, seeing as it is so easy to rollback15:22
Gentoo64like their the devils15:22
ikoniaGentoo64: because they can cause serious issues to peoples machines.15:23
furyoshonenActionParsnip: Thanks, I am not sure how on earth you solved this problem so quickly, you must live and breath ubuntu15:23
Gentoo64even a well known flash ppa?15:23
ikoniaActionParsnip: why not install the supported package15:23
ikoniaGentoo64: yes15:23
ActionParsnipfuryoshonen: is it better?15:23
Gentoo64ppas are part of ubuntu though15:23
oCeanGentoo64: no15:23
ikoniaGentoo64: no, they are not15:23
ActionParsnipGentoo64: officially, no15:23
ikoniaGentoo64: they are nothing to do with ubuntu, that's the point.15:23
Gentoo64why not disallow the use of them then15:23
ubottuA Personal Package Archive (PPA) can provide alternate software not normally available in the offical Ubuntu repositories - Looking for a PPA? See https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+ppas - WARNING: PPAs are unsupported third-party packages, and you use them at your own risk. See also !addppa15:23
Gentoo64not part of ubuntu, but ubuntu lets you use them im saying15:24
ikoniaGentoo64: some are very very worth while and thought through, the majority are just a mess.15:24
ActionParsnipfuryoshonen: is flash much better now?15:24
glebihanGentoo64, you're free to use them, they're not supported15:24
Gentoo64i think you're being silly about it15:24
ikoniaGentoo64: then you don't understand it15:24
Gentoo64ofc i do15:24
oCeanGentoo64: not supported means, no support here, and we cannot promise updates (like we do on official repos)15:24
Gentoo64theyre not officially maintained15:25
Gentoo64i know15:25
ikoniaGentoo64: then why can't you see the risks and dmaage they can cause15:25

ubottuWOWMYNICKISBAD: Usually, there is no single "best" application to perform a given task. It's up to you to choose, depending on your preferences, features you require, and other factors. Do NOT take polls in the channel. If you insist on getting people's opinions, ask BestBot in #ubuntu-bots.15:25

furyoshonenActionParsnip: I won't know unless it kills my connection. I was disconnecting randomly, and sometimes it wasn't automatically connecting, and I had to restart my computer... to repeat the bug I have to either put it to sleep, or leave it on all night15:25
Gentoo64because its too unlikely15:25
ikoniaGentoo64: what's too unlikley15:25
WOWMYNICKISBADwhich do you guys prefer irssi or xchat15:25
ActionParsnipWOWMYNICKISBAD: there is no single best app for anything in any OS15:25
Gentoo64that using a well known flash ppa will be the end of your system15:25
ikoniaWOWMYNICKISBAD: re-read the factoid15:25
oCeanWOWMYNICKISBAD: try and then choose for yourself15:25
ikoniaGentoo64: that's not what I said15:25
ActionParsnipWOWMYNICKISBAD: its as intelligent as asking "what is the best colour"15:25
ikoniaGentoo64: no15:26

ActionParsnipikonia: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RestrictedFormats/Flash  also states: Greater stability, Greater speed and performance, Fewer dependencies to install15:30
furyoshonenActionParsnip: hmmm... flash doesn't seem to be working now... maybe I didn't install properly15:30
ikoniaActionParsnip: what ?15:31
ActionParsnipfuryoshonen: did you close your browser and reload it15:31
furyoshonenActionParsnip: yes15:31
ActionParsnipikonia: on the official doc about flash, it says that. Is it incorrect? It also lists the PPA I gave?15:31
ikoniaActionParsnip: if that document is true....why is it not being packaged officially15:32
ActionParsnipikonia: not after a fight, just looking for consistency15:32
ikoniaActionParsnip: if it's as good as this document says, why is it not in the offiical repo ?15:32
ActionParsnipikonia: not sure, you got me there15:32
ikoniaActionParsnip: because there are problems in certain hardware situations,15:32
Gentoo64a lot of things arent in the official repo15:32
ikoniaActionParsnip: I'm not saying it's bad at all, I'm saying it isn't always better, it depends15:32

bruteforce_alltiis there any file browser application in ubuntu in which I can use  drop down like button to view and open the file instead of opening the folder?15:34

rbookhouseActionParsnip, well I know I can chroot from any old livecd/usb - (not the first time I've done that) - but was after something simpler15:35
rbookhouselike a grub setting that counts how many times its booted something and set a maxium15:35
ActionParsnipfuryoshonen: ok then run: sudo apt-get install flashplugin64-installer15:35
ActionParsnipfuryoshonen: does it state it is already installed, or does it install?15:36
