nac-godfatherwell I'm gonna play some GTAIV EFLC TBOGT before I go tackle a $70 Windows backup andclean install.00:01
nac-godfatherGood luck00:01
omidoIslam:  not so hard. imho it worths . you can upgrade your normally installed ubuntu at any time . like upgrade from 11.04 to 11.10 . but i think in wubi you cant .00:02
omidoIslam:  nope . you can shrink your partitions and use extended partitions . no need to remove a partition .00:02
jjsamIt had "ata1.00: BMDMA stat 0x4"00:03
IslamI mean can I install ubuntu on an empty linux partation ?00:03
nac-godfatheryes, but make sure you put grub on the boot sector of that partition and then flag that partition active, and adjust your boot priority if also necessary.  You can always chainload your windows loader.00:05

MrZepeda_what a jerk00:07
ActionParsnipIslam: yes you can install to the empty parttion, you wil need an extra one for swap too00:07
ActionParsnipnac-godfather: not constructive00:08
Islamyeah I can handle that, but how actionparsnip00:08
ActionParsnipIslam: i suggest you delete the partition, then boot to live CD and install to the free space. You say the partition is empty so there will be no data to destroy00:08

When I play a movie in the first monitor, work fine but in second monitor I've tearing effect (I think that is problem of vsync, but I've activated vsync in nvidia-settings and compiz-settings). Is possible fix it? In other OS the 01:39
d1zzY_I am trying to encrypt ubuntu 10.10(blackbuntu to be exact)..it is already installed...the option was not available through the installer..can i use cryptsetup through the commandline on a live cd??01:40
theadmind1zzY_: We don't support derivatives01:42
bkfitzany ufw/iptables experts around... for some reason after running sudo ufw allow 5432 (for postgres), the port is still showing closed when i run nmap01:43
bkfitzslow night eh01:45
Coreybkfitz: What does netstat -ant |grep 5432 say?01:46
ActionParsnipdiytto: blackbuntu isn't supported here01:46

d1zzY_I am trying to encrypt ubuntu 10.10..it is already installed...the option was not available through the installer..can i use cryptsetup through the commandline on a live cd??01:47
bkfitzCorey sure01:47
rhcp[linux]thanks. I fixed it myslef01:47
Pcd2d1zzY_ i think encryptfs is the route you're looking for.  not entirely sure.01:47
d1zzY_ahh i found a hak5 forum post w/ ubuntu 10.0401:48
d1zzY_thank you though01:48
d1zzY_ill look into it01:48
ActionParsnipd1zzY_: connect to irc.foonetic.net and join #Blackbuntu   for suppoer01:49
bkfitzCorey: ip is

d1zzY_ActionParsnip, i was there, the room was empty..i tried BlackBuntu and blackbuntu...2nd b is little?01:49
theadmind1zzY_: IRC isn't case sensetive01:50

Pcd2what is Plymouth in Ubuntu???????01:50
Coreybkfitz: You're only binding to localhost.01:50
theadminPcd2: Bootsplash thing01:50
ActionParsniptheadmin: its official as of Oneiric afaik01:51
Pcd2makes sense.  bootsplash does nothing.01:51
bkfitzCorey:    :| what does that mean01:51
ActionParsnipPcd2: its the gui spash thing at startup and a few underlying things01:51
Pcd2ok.  explains why not connecting to it affects nothing serious.01:51
Coreybkfitz: Postgres isn't listening to external interfaces.01:51

ActionParsniptheadmin: http://www.linux-magazine.com/Online/News/Ubuntu-Makes-Lubuntu-Official-Derivative01:52
theadminmouche: I think you're messing something up, mirrorselect is an Arch tool... Unless it works with debian repos too, doubt it01:52
bkfitzCorey: you mean in my pg_hba01:52
Ibismouche: How about just use... ISPConfig on ubuntu-server?01:52
bkfitzCOrey: i think i have allow all01:52
Coreybkfitz: I mean postgres isn't configured to bind to any external IPs, only localhost.01:52

tbruff13yes can someone help me i would like to know what packages ubuntu 10.04 has that allows it to have iphone and ipod support01:57

mouchebagJordan_U:  well i'm on a fresh install at the moment where I didn't install the proprietary driver yet because i knew it would crash02:01
hoverbearmouchebag: Yes but is it your only gpu in the laptop? Or is it a new one with optimus technology and/or gpu switching?02:01
tbruff13hoverbear: why can ubuntu 10.04 work but not the newest ubuntu02:01
mouchebagJordan_U:  so i don't know should I download the proprietary and then do that ?02:01
hoverbearIbis: Unity is garbage? :-P02:01
mouchebaghoverbear : I don't know , it's from 2008 if that helps clarify02:02
hoverbeartbruff13: If the old ubuntu works the new one should too :-P02:02
Jordan_Umouchebag: Yes. (using the official Ubuntu "Additional Drivers" tool).02:02
Ibishoverbear: Unity is the best thing since sliced bread! :U Are you mad!?!?!?02:02
hoverbearIbis: Best thing since moldy sliced bread maybe :-P02:02
theadminIbis: Probably half of us are mad then02:02
mouchebaghoverbear: on nvidia .com it talks about having somethign to dow with switching between modes for different picture quality02:02
theadminIbis: Most of people consider Unity a piece of trash, same for Gnome3 actually02:02
tbruff13hoverbear: it doesn't i am running mint now but i tried ubuntu 10.10 and 1102:02
mouchebagUnity is very bad because it is a graphics hog02:03
Ibistheadmin: Yea, but most didn't seem to evolved to such a new way.02:03
roasted_Is it possible that having 2 monitors in twinview that have different refresh rates (59hz vs 60hz) is causing my video tearing?02:03
mouchebagJordan_U:  so what do you think02:03
Ibismouchebag: It seems to work better than Ubuntu Classic, since it doesn't have metacity to bloat up the use of memory.02:03
hoverbearmouchebag: Right, so you have an optimus GPU, which nvidia has explicitly stated they will not support on linux. Please send them a complaint.02:03
Jordan_Umouchebag: I think I need more information.02:04
mouchebaghoverbear: oh did they really say that, i'll check for sure if it's optimus as you say02:04
mouchebaghoverbear: thing is they provide the driver for the card on tehir official website, for Linux02:04
=== matthew is now known as Guest74721
mouchebaghoverbear: so I dont know if you're right02:04
hoverbearmouchebag: Yeah make sure it's optimus.02:04
IbisOn my next computer, I'm not buying from anyone that will not support Linux. Period.02:04
hoverbearmouchebag: BTW, I have an optmius card, I just use my intel chipset to do graphics and use the nvidia card in windows02:05
theadminIbis: Heh, good luck with that. Just in case you want to know, my Samsung R525 works perfectly :P And it has an AMD graphics card so that's weird02:05
mouchebaghoverbear:  wait how do you do that02:05
hoverbearmouchebag: I turn it off in bios02:05
mouchebaghoverbear:  I need to be able to use this OS for watching high quality vids02:05
mouchebaghoverbear:   how do you do that though ? i forget whats bios again02:06
Ibistheadmin: Well, I mean in terms of hardware not working on Linux.02:06
hoverbearmouchebag: The newest intel chips (I dunno if it's what you have) push 1080p no sweat02:06
IbisBut I'm sure some companies out there don't mind giving us freebies.02:06
mouchebaghoverbear:  I can output 1080p through HDMI when I use windows with this02:07
mouchebaghoverbear:  it's just linux having the problems02:07
ActionParsnipmouchebag: different OS, different supoprt02:07
mouchebaghoverbear: my comp has an intel sticker so are you saying it has 2 cards inside of it ? wow02:07
ActionParsnipmouchebag: oh jeez, is it one of those hybrid gpu things02:07
hoverbearmouchebag: No I'm not sure if that's optimus or not02:07
mouchebaghoverbear: not card but chipset02:07
mouchebaghoverbear: no nevermind what I just said I was confusing myself02:08
hoverbearActionParsnip: i have one of those, they suck imo02:08
mouchebaghoverbear: I dont have hybrid GPU lol02:08
mouchebagActionParsnip:  I dont lol02:08
ActionParsniphoverbear: never heard a success story with them02:08
mouchebaghoverbear:  no what i have is probably the same as you, mine is a nvidia card for sure02:08
mouchebaghoverbear:  and ith as an intel sticker I guess thats the chipset you're talking about02:08
ActionParsnipmouchebag: is it a laptop or a desktop?02:08
mouchebaghoverbear:  how do I make my linux use it ?02:08
mouchebagActionParsnip:  It's a desktopreplacement laptop02:08
Ibistheadmin: Why do you not like Unity by the way? I like it for a few reasons. The most being it's revolutionary change of removing the traditional task bar, and sticks it on the left side of the screen to only appear when I need it.     And then making top menu bar reserved strictly for Notifications, and menus from any program I run.02:08
hoverbearActionParsnip: I've got it working in linux actually, just terrible performance02:09
mouchebaghoverbear:  how do I make the linux OS use the intel chipset , like you're doing ?02:09
hoverbearIbis: Gnome3 is better :-p02:09
ActionParsnipmouchebag: what make and model?02:09
hoverbearmouchebag: BIOS might work02:09
theadminIbis: I did the same thing with my XFCE. Still works faster and better.02:09
mouchebaghoverbear: how do I do that I dont know what BIOS is is that the first screen you see when the computer turns on ,like without any OS02:09
Ibishoverbear: I'm waiting for 11.10 when that gnome 3 shall be available.02:09
Krenair<hoverbear> Ibis: Gnome3 is better :-p02:09
mouchebagActionParsnip:  Toshiba qosmio x30002:09
KrenairHave you ever tried using more than 1 monitor with gnome 3, hoverbear ?02:09
hoverbearmouchebag: I can't tell you because I don't know. :-p02:10
Ibistheadmin: But it may not contain the same tools though.02:10
hoverbearKrenair: Nope but I imagine it's better then unity :-P02:10
mouchebaghoverbear: Oh if you don't know how did you do it yourself then ??02:10
hoverbearmouchebag: Different machine02:10
mouchebaghoverbear: but can you tell me how you did it for your own and I can see if mine compares to being similar02:10

ActionParsnipmouchebag: its not his to sell02:16

roasted_hoverbear, why do you say that?02:16
ActionParsnipmouchebag: it is illegal02:16
excelsiorThe point is a legal technicality. I could sell them for $100,000 a disk. The point is that I'm not selling a license for use, I'm just selling the disk they're on.02:16
Jordan_UActionParsnip: You are wrong about not being able to charge for the product itself. Such a prohibition against chargning money, even for a profit, would go against most definitions of Free Software.02:16

saulotoledoHello! How can I install lightdm in my language? I have only english here02:19
roasted_hoverbear, I was just curious if you had any technical reasoning behind it because it seems like that's my issue but I'm trying to understand it more.02:20
hoverbearroasted_: Behind what? :-P02:20
roasted_hoverbear, behind separate monitors having different refresh rates causing video tearing.02:20
hoverbearroasted_: Well it'd only assumingly happen when transfering across monitors but it shouldn't be noticable02:21
roasted_hoverbear, well, it is02:21
roasted_hoverbear, I've dealt with video tearing for the last... 7 years? and each time I've had different computers and each time I've had video tearing. however I've ALWAYS used the same monitors.02:22
roasted_hoverbear, and the vsync settings and all of that has done NOTHING for me. nothing.02:22
roasted_hoverbear, but someone asked me what refresh rates my monitors are. one is 60, one is 59. and he said that's EXACTLY what his issue was because he faced the same thing I did.02:22
roasted_hoverbear, he said that video cards see twinview'd linux monitors as 1, so both of my monitors are seen as one, and as a result different refresh rates can cause weirdness02:23
hoverbearCan you change the rates?02:23
roasted_I don't believe so02:23
roasted_he said it's dictated by the monitor hardware02:23
roasted_however on newegg I found a monitor that said the refresh rate was 49-75, which made me think it was variable02:23
hoverbearYeah it should be02:23

wendell_dhcpQuestion about DHCP.  Up until 2 days ago, my Ubuntu 11.04 box was working awesomely.  I had to reboot after some upgrades, and then it was flakey connecting to my router (wired).  Now it will not connect.  DHCP timeout in the logs.  Everything found in docs suggests card is working.  Other ubuntu boxes connecting to router.  Tried manual settings--still not working.  Can anyone help or point me to docs?  Thanks, thanks, thanks in advance.03:02

wendell_dhcpAny dchp troubleshooting manuals?  I haven't found them yet.  Any help appreciated...thanks!03:20
Tigerboyroasted_: no that won't cause it but your control panel for the driver may have an anti-tearing setting03:20
roasted_Tigerboy - yeah, it definitely doesn't. However I've read from some people this could be why I have tearing.03:20
Tigerboybarridus: just add cups pdf in your synaptic package manager03:20
ActionParsniperuch_: ok, run: sudo kill -9 5873; sudo apt-get -f install; sudo apt-get --reinstall install compiz03:20
roasted_Tigerboy - afte rall, using 1 monitor does NOT show tearing. yet using two monitors does. someone told me twinview sees 2 monitors as 1, so having moniotrs with separate refresh rates could cause it, which, makes sense to me...03:20
ActionParsnipwendell_dhcp: what is your issue?03:21
BarridusActionParsnip, i need to print more than just word documents03:21

urlin2uibm, yes, t=run the command ActionParsnip suggested mine is i686, I only have 32 bit.04:41
TohuwThe 3 and 6 are generational identifiers, not architectural identifiers.04:41
ibmbut why is my ubuntu getting stuck after a while04:41
melvincvibm, yes, my processor is a 32 bit Pentium 4 , but uname -m gives me i686. It's OK. i386 is for older 32 bit processors.04:42

ActionParsnipsamsul: there is memtest in grub, i suggest you test it. If recovery mode is having an issue then its probably something like that04:46
Tohuwibm: You still aren't giving enough information. You need to reproduce a specific error. "Stuff crashes after awhile" is not specific. "OpenOffice Writer crashes after 5-15 minutes of just being open" is. Regardless, what does dmesg tell you?04:46

gsommerLast Friday, I asked for help about getting hibernation to work on my laptop. I was told to make sure my swap partition is at-least the same size as my RAM... It is not (4.5g swap, 4gb RAM). But, resume from hibernation still does not work. How can I debug this further ?06:29

edbianibm: I have no idea.  Don't ever run that06:42
vsyncibm because to me it looks like you've fubar'd your system to oblivion, or then it's just some simple stuff you fail to do. In any case, a full reinstall could be the easiest way out06:43
devanvsync, well... nautilus shows the ipod, but won't open it. rhythmbox plays music off it, but can't seem to put music on it (just says nothing and won't do it, though I can make a playlist and not put anything it and rename it...)... banshee doesn't seem to see it. :\06:44

gsommerSingham: That post relates to the system baing unable to suspend - due to USB2 drivers. This is not my case... suspend works fine, but RESUME from hibernation does not. (Well, hibernation does not work... dunno if it writes the data to RAM(06:45

Gentoo64Atharva, just type mplayer then the path to the file07:41
ActionParsnipchalcedony: sudo apt-get install flashplugin64-installer07:41
yaccikonia, lucid-proposed, and the first glaring problem is that nouveau did not come up, hence with a generic fbdev X I've got only one display mirrored on two panels, ...07:42
Guest16112after a restart i saw them don't work!!07:42
Gentoo64Atharva, is it pure cli? im not sure about how to get it to run in console framebuffer never tried it07:42
chalcedonyActionParsnip, flashplugin64-installer is already the newest version.07:42
Guest16112e.g inside qt ctrl + s do not save the file07:42
ikoniayacc: I wouldn't be using things out of proposed07:42
yaccikonia, the drm module seems to have loaded fine, and with proposed enabled, there are no updates for packages containing nouveau in it's name.07:42
rwwrunning -proposed is not a good idea, at all, unless you like breakage. it's also not supported here.07:43
ActionParsniptaraduffy: use terminal. Use: cd   to go into a folder. When you are in the folder with the script, run: sudo scriptname07:43
yaccikonia, okay, my ext4 fs with external SSD journal crashes the box at some random point, usually less than 12 hours from boot with the regular kernels.07:43
KrayonWorkGentoo64: I guess that could be the issue.  How long do Ubuntu usually take to do new builds?  I can't believe it's like this again.  I've seen this issue at least once before, back in v2 days IIRC :/07:43
yaccikonia, googling around the problem "ext4 with fast discs" seems to be fixed by later kernels, ...07:43
yaccikonia, but without a working X, it's somehow a non-starter.07:44
Gentoo64KrayonWork, afaik ubuntu patches them for security / stability not sure how often07:44
ActionParsnipchalcedony: ok, now if you rerun the first command i gave you, do you only have flashplugin64-installer07:44
ikoniayacc: as you're using an LTS release, I'd log a bug and push it through, and if it IS a kernel bug the fix may get back ported as an update, rather than a whole kernel update from proposed07:44
KrayonWorkGentoo64: This isn't my machine, is this version an official Ubuntu thing or a third party, do you know?07:44
chalcedonyActionParsnip, i'll take a look07:44
Gentoo64KrayonWork, if its not from a ppa and from standard repos then you should get official updates07:45

Gentoo64KrayonWork, if theres a bug theres not much you can do apart from wait or submit a big report07:46
ActionParsniptaraduffy: cd ~/Desktop/Driver07:46
ikoniayacc: it will take as long as it takes, you can push it through by working with people, so I guess it is as quick as you can gather and motivate people07:46
KrayonWorkHow can I ascertain where it came from?07:47
Gentoo64KrayonWork, i have no idea what / if ubuntu does to the files07:48
taraduffyActionParsnip: OK, done. Now how do I run the install.sh?07:48
yaccikonia, my experience with reporting bugs on launchpad has been that the ubuntu guys have no qualms to merge bugs that are obviously not related (and/or at least not enough investigated to decide that), so if you've got a laptop that has a thermic issue (which is obviously software caused, because older kernels do not have it), you get merged into one huge bug that contains everything from broken software, missing driver support and true software issues.07:49
ActionParsniptaraduffy: chmod +x ./install.sh; sudo ./install.sh07:49
chalcedonyActionParsnip, i can't tell, it looks happy is all i can say07:49
ActionParsnipchalcedony: sounds an all?07:49
yaccikonia, curiously that "merged bug" never moved forward for years, guess this is by design so (if you merge different issues into one bug you'll have problems to manage it).07:49
chalcedonynot sure ActionParsnip - restarting firefox07:50
ikoniayacc: I've found that you get what you put into the bug system, if you log a bug and just keep putting info on it, nothing will happen, if you log a bug with info, find the right people to work with and help push it through, it gets fixed. I don't believe the model is an acceptable model, but it is how it is07:50
yaccikonia, so how does one find "the right people"?07:51

jowop(after reboot) under EBS Volumes, i'm seeing the four in use by the instance08:13
jowopis there something that i'm overlooking with that?08:14
VampsDaBeastany one know of software that would give me better usablilty in edit metamodes then the nvidia x server config08:14
jowopall say attached, so i'm assuming that what you've asked is the default behavior08:14
seegis there a way to see the differences between files in a ubuntu .deb package and the files currently on the disk?08:15
somsipjowop: if they're attached sounds ok. Not sure about raid on EC2 as I only have experience with single EBS vols tho08:15

somsipjowop: Can you see the attached columes on the instance...sudo fdisk -l I guess is the same for RAID?08:18

yaccVampsDaBeast, well, you could always write scripts that manipulate the nvidia settings directly, but what exactly are you trying to achieve?08:31
artypig78is there a way of forcing a client to delete all cookies/cache thru html/js?08:32
tommyyako47mmany1 kw how this shit08:34
VampsDaBeastyacc, and easy way to edit the metamodes, and possibly a shortcut to activate them08:34
japrohi, i had the update installer install some new stuff, now the system is unreasonable sluggish on my netbook08:34
japroit seems to consume way more memory than before08:35
japroeven after bootup without starting anything it already  uses 400mb08:35
yaccVampsDaBeast, as I'm not using the closed-source nvidia stuff, what exactly are meta modes?08:35
VampsDaBeastmetamodes all you to setup different display sets, when using more then one monitor..08:36
japrotop doesn't show a single memory consumer that really stands out08:36

=== Robert_ is now known as Guest45909
japrowell, yeah, after the most recent upgrades the memory usage and startup times went through the roof and i can't pinpoint the source08:47
almoxarifejapro: what version?08:47
japroit consumes more than 400mb just after startup before running anything additional08:48
almoxarifejapro: really? 11.04 seems to me to be the most worthwhile and I have played with the diff versions08:49
japrothis happened just now after running the updated manager08:49
almoxarifejapro: about 340mb?08:49
japrothe updated manager took forever since it started swapping stuff out08:49
japroover 400. now it's at 650 with xchat and firefox08:50
almoxarifejapro: 340mb is about what I expect to see at startup on 11.0408:50
almoxarifejapro: firefox eats ram depending on addons, chrome does too08:51
sveinseHow can I reset/purge all bluetooth config from my machine? I cannot uninstall with purge because bluetooth is interwoven into gnome08:51
esheepjapro: how many tabs open on firefox?08:51
japroesheep, one that displays a stackoverflow page08:51
almoxarifesveinse: keep it from starting via 'startup apps'08:52
japrowell, maybe this is just normal and i didn't notice before08:52
almoxarifejapro: what I wish existed was a ram economizer, something to pull ram from the cruff08:53
japroi just never had it start swapping memory before (even running eclipse etc.)08:53
japroalso startup after the update seemed very slow08:53
esheepalmoxarife: its called package manager :)08:53
sveinsealmoxarife: How does that help? My problem is that I'm unable to remove a bluetooth device, which I need to re-add to have a working mouse on my system. So I hoped on wiping all of the bluetooth config would help08:53
japrohmpf, there is definitely something different08:54
japroi had multiple browser windows, eclipse and multiple PDFs open before on this machine08:54
almoxarifeesheep: removing bluetooth completely is a bench, I suggested insuring it did not start on user session08:54
japronow just starting firefox and eclipse puts it to 850mb usage out of my 1gb08:55
curiousxjapro: what version of firefox ?08:55
almoxarifesveinse: so you need bluetooth every session08:56
curiousxOMG mozilla people say that version 7 reduce mem usage at 30% =(08:56
esheepcuriousx: LOL08:56
japrowell, I'm not sure that firefox per se is the problem08:57
hellslingercuriousx: do you know why FF versions have become so, "inflated?"08:57
almoxarifechromium brothers, it's the llamas rear08:57
japrohmm, it sits at 90mb atm08:57
curiousxi have Firefox 7 as well, and after 6 hours runing it consume 120 megas =P08:57
Morgawrhello.. I have a question, I'm in need to recompile the linux kernel with some testing patches for a school project, can I just grab a linux kernel verion from github (the one maintained by Linus Torvalds) and apply that to Ubuntu or will it require some special patching specifically for ubuntu?08:57
curiousxi dont know but, do you install it from Mozilla's repos ?08:58
japronow after closing firefox and ecplise again08:58
japroist still sits at 660mb08:58
japrojust running xchat and top08:58
japromaybe i should try classic instead of unity?08:59
almoxarifechrome, it's the gas, once its set to your confy level and sync'ed its saved for ever,08:59
esheepepiphany isnt a bad browser for lightweight usage09:00
hellslingerMorgawr, there is a process for building a working kernel for ubuntu09:00
hellslingerMorgawr, you cannot simply make a bzImage of it, and have it boot from grub and expect it to work properly09:01
curiousxi used epiphany and is good it's firefox based09:01
Morgawrhellslinger: Is there a website or guide explaining how to do so? mainly because I just need to apply a few patches and see if they run or not... nothing too fancy09:02
hellslingerMorgawr, you may want to consider using a build-from-source distro if you want to test a custom kernel, like gentoo or arch09:02
esheepcuriousx: epiphany isnt firefox based09:02
Morgawrhellslinger: yeah... I think I might as well go with gentoo I guess09:02
curiousxmmm... i think so, couse are too similary =P09:03
esheepcuriousx: epiphany is a webkit based browser09:03
curiousxexcusemy so =(09:03
hellslingerMorgawr, explain a little more about what you want to do? I might have better advice09:04
Morgawrhellslinger: it's a university project, our professor made some patches on the UDP protocol and gave us the patched files... we have to do the same with the TCP protocol and then compile the kernel and test them09:05
dD0TNot exactly "ubuntu" related but does anyone know where to file bugs for the ubuntu one windows client?09:05
hellslingerMorgawr, does this project require anything GUI dependent? or are you testing TCP/UDP stuff on a command line?09:05
Morgawrhellslinger: nah, theoretically only command line09:06
A_JHey All Quick Question, I have two internal hardrives, and the non boot hard drive does not auto mount on startup, any idea how i can do this ?09:06
hellslingerMorgawr, then I would go with gentoo or arch, you can bet your install bootstrapped, build a kernel09:06
hellslingerad then if you need X, you can just build enough to run xorg and fluxbox09:06
qrqHow set EsounD as default sound server?09:06
Morgawrhellslinger: I already have a VM with gentoo and X server, so that's not a problem...09:07
almoxarifeqrq: perhaps in a vbox09:07
qrqalmoxarife Its not possible in ubuntu?09:08
sveinseLet me rephrase my question: How can I wipe/erase all bluetooth config? Does anyone know where the bluetooth config/pairing is stored?09:08
hellslingerMorgawr, I tried to build brainfuck scheduler into Ubuntu a couple of years back and it was a slow and painful process, never worked perfectly either09:08
A_Jhellslinger: look at my question09:08
almoxarifeqrq: possible? anything is possible, but pulse is basically the sound, and de3viating from it won't be easy09:09
antonyI want to disable the USB ports for mass storage..is there any gui?09:09
almoxarifeqrq: what needs esound?09:09
Morgawrhellslinger: okay, thanks for the help then, I will go study the process of building custom kernels on gentoo and then get back to the project :)09:09
curiousxA_J: you have to add a line in the "/etc/fstab" file to mount automaticaly09:09
curiousxone line per hard drive09:09

qrqalmoxarife It got better dynamic range.. :)09:10
hellslingerMorgawr, it is as easy as downloading the source, make xconfig, make, and make install on gentoo.... good luck!09:10

qrqalmoxarife I got Sennheisers09:14

siksiany suggestions why dbus is behaving strangely in a fresh installation of ubuntu? "Unique-DBus-WARNING **: Error while sending message: Did not receive a reply."09:53
auronandaceA_J: reboot, then it should be writable09:53
siksialso starting nautilus is extremely slow09:53
A_Jauronandace: ok brb i guess09:53
auronandaceA_J: this is assuming /mnt/windows exists09:53
siksii tried googling but got just old bug reports with various statuses from invalid to confirmed09:53
icerootA_J: no need for a reboot09:53
icerootA_J: sudo mount -a  instead of a reboot09:54
curiousxA_J: ---> ls /mnt/09:54
auronandaceA_J: yeah, sorry, you could just remount instead09:54
auronandaceiceroot: thanks09:54
inzsiksi, sounds like someone on the D-Bus is not responding to messages09:54
esheepcase of de bus is going around in circles09:55
A_J_auronandace: nop did'nt work09:55
A_J_yet can't even manually mount the drive09:56
=== A_J_ is now known as A_J
siksiinz: well yeah, but is there any sensible reason why that would happen in a fresh installation of ubuntu? (fresh here meaning installed last friday and since it's really been just apt-get install apache & co)09:56
auronandaceA_J: hmm, odd09:57
A_Jauronandace: now what09:57
A_Jperhaps roll back the changes auronandace09:58
A_Jso i can use my drive09:58
curiousxthe windows folder exists in /mnt ?09:58
A_Jyes curiousx09:58
curiousxjust you have to remove the line we wrote in fstab09:59
A_Jhmm the drive is also there09:59
auronandaceA_J: how are you editing fstab?09:59
A_Jsudo gpedit path auronandace09:59
auronandaceA_J: gpedit? do you mean gedit? and i hope you are using gksudo instead of just sudo10:00
siksirestarting with an older kernel seems to work10:01
esheepA_J: just a tip, when messing about with critcal files like fstab, make a backup of it first10:01
siksii'll have to put some time into trying to figure out why that happens later on10:01
siksihave to try get some work done now10:01
KM0201auronandace: while gksudo is more appropriate, it's not gonna make a difference whether the entry works properly or not.10:01
A_Jesheep: okie made one just now10:01
taraduffycan anyone help me with an install via a terminal?10:01
* A_J is going for a reboot brb10:01
auronandaceKM0201: i'm aware of that, just want to encourage better usage10:02
KM0201auronandace: of course, but.. if sudo didn't fix the problem, gksudo won't.. and his whole issue seems to be that his fstab entry is working, my point is... don't confuse the issue...10:02
KM0201A_J: can you pastebin your fstab?10:03
yaccSo what do I do if I find a bug in apport (10.04LTS)?10:04
SyriaHello, How can I install gnome 3.2 on my Natty 11.04?10:04
KM0201!gnome3 | Syria i would not recommend messing w/ gnome 3 at this point..10:04
ubottuSyria i would not recommend messing w/ gnome 3 at this point..: Gnome 3 is not currently supported on Ubuntu. A PPA for natty is available at https://launchpad.net/~gnome3-team/+archive/gnome3 but these packages are EXPERIMENTAL and UNSTABLE, will break Unity and possibly other parts of your system, and cannot be downgraded safely.10:04
Girly-Girlyacc: https://wiki.kubuntu.org/Apport10:05
A_Jit worked at the end auronandace but i needed it mounted as it was mnaully mounted not in the windows folder, as i have torrent paths assosiated with the address10:05
auronandaceA_J: well done10:05
SyriaKM0201:  Thnx, I will install it now since it is unstable.10:06
A_Jlol i deleted it and am back where i started10:06
A_Jperhaps a bash script to run whenever i startup auronandace10:06
KM0201Syria: just be prepared to reinstall your OS.. you've been warned10:06
KM0201A_J: pastebin your fstab please10:06
KM0201A_J: and also the output of sudo fdisk -l10:07
yaccGirly-Girl, so how does that help me if apport ends with a traceback (Actually I know even the fix, *grrr*, it's a newbie python error)10:07
siksiactually, restarting in the old kernel did not fix i think. now it opens, but if i mousever the nautilus window it dims out10:07
A_JKM0201: http://pastebin.com/b6DdC7Jr10:08
yaccWell, the web interface hides it a little bit, but google found the web form ;)10:08
A_JKM0201: : http://pastebin.com/Lt6FM8xT10:08
yaccNope, it redirects to a Wiki page telling me to use apport, these guys should be shot.10:09
SyriaKM0201:  Sorry I wanted to say I will NOT install it since it is unstable!!10:09
SyriaKM0201:  Thank you for warning me. :-)10:09

jonathon_Nevermind, It decided to work now10:17
jonathon_Thanks anyways10:17
bastidrazorA_J: you do know its already mounted on /media/Date Drive ..10:17
A_Jokie KM0201 . bastidrazor it is now10:17
* A_J will brb after reboot10:17
bastidrazorA_J: you don't have to reboot to mount the drive.10:17
Girly-GirlAre there any controler and CPU downclock/ overclock tools on Ubuntu10:18
bastidrazorA_J: umount /media/Data\ Drive  , then sudo mount -a  ..that will give errors too if somethign is wrong10:18
KM0201bastidrazor: pay attention, he's tryign to get itt o mount during boot.. thus the reason for the fstab editing10:18
bastidrazorKM0201: i am paying attention. sudo mount -a will do the same thing.10:18
bastidrazorKM0201: if sudo mount -a fails then restarting isn't going to help since it won't mount anyway10:19
jonathon_Anyone know how I can edit the GRUB list?10:19
KM0201i see what you're saying10:19
KM0201i've never used sudo mount -a   good tip.10:19
A_J_KM0201: it's yet not booted now what10:21
auronandace!grub2 | jonathon_10:21

KM0201A_J: just let it boot... but bastidrazor is right, sudo mount -a would have worked fine.10:22
jonathon_That didn't help10:22
auronandacejonathon_: it didn't help because you didn't read it, it is documentation for grub210:22
KM0201A_J_: hit "escape".. and see if there's a message to skip mounting10:23

bastidrazorempity: no. once you upgrade, its final10:29
KM0201A_J_: naa, unmount it with sudo umount /media/Data10:29
Tm_Tempity: you cannot do such upgrade directly (without problems atleast) and no, you cannot roll back10:29
KM0201then sudo mount -a10:29
doguitoHey guys/a, which software should I install for java programming?10:29

daiI hit a snag... I can't create an additional partition because I have exceeded the amount of primary partitions, is there a way to increase the limit of primary partitions ?10:32
A_J_well it's my vlc player, i keep my ubuntu pc on for weeks at a time, after a few days the video stop's showing only the audio. any clue why10:33
KM0201A_J_: i have no clue on that one..10:33
A_J_KM0201: lol no1 does10:33
A_J_what do you use for video KM020110:33
KM0201A_J: gnome mplayer *usually*... but sometimes vlc..10:34
auronandacedai: no, you're meant to use logical partitions (within an extended partition)10:34
A_J_thing is i have a slow processer, so for hd i need to rely on vdpau, so i use smplayer, but it laggs at jitters once in a while10:34
A_Japparently u need dual core for hd10:35
A_Jsm players jitters often spoil a movie10:36
dai@auronandace I tried gentoo's advice to install Win 7 and Ubuntu on separate partitions and to create another ntfs partition that both OS can access but using gparted I can't create a partition with the rest of my allocated space because i would exceed 4 primary partitions :/10:36
bastidrazorA_J: i use "mplayer -vfm ffmpeg -lavdopts fast:skiploopfilter=all" for HD movies on this weak laptop10:36
A_Jbastidrazor: my mplayer has never ever worked10:37
bastidrazorA_J: smplayer IS mplayer10:37
A_Jbastidrazor: so in sm player i would do what10:38
auronandacedai: then you need to delete some partitions to make room10:39
empityauronandace: ok well then I think we should do something like: complete backup of the machine, upgrade one version at a time10:39

auronandacedai: linux and an ntfs storage partition can be put in an extended partition, windows needs a primary10:40

farhad2161i installed a vpn server with "sudo apt-get install pptpd" but i do not want to use default vpn port,how can i change it?11:43
KM0201farhad2161: my first thought, would be to look in /etc  and see fi there is a pptpd.conf11:43
dr_willisfarhad2161:  Just a guess. but i bet theres a pptpd config file in /etc/ somewhere and the man pages for pptpd mention it i would imagine11:44

odinsbaneDoes anybody here get a filenot found when trying to execute 32bit files with 64bit ubuntu?13:56
ikoniatouson: they are apple package files13:56
ikoniaodinsbane: that won't work13:56
kernkraftwoon't work13:56
ikoniaodinsbane: unless the library is dynamically linked to a multi-lib enviornment13:57
Snicksietelemare, i think you can rename them to .iso and afterwards just burning, but i'm not 100% sure :)13:57
usr13touson: Do you have a /etc/X11/xorg.conf file now?   (ls /etc/X11/xorg.conf )13:57
odinsbaneikonia: I have been told that it does work.  I have also seen a 32 bit file be executed on a 64bit system.13:57
Snicksiehm, nope telemare, but you can use a dmg2iso converter and burn them afterwards :)13:57
telemarei cant find that app13:58
tousonusr13: here's my xorg.conf http://pastebin.com/X6ubpuC913:58
ikoniaodinsbane: I've just said 32bit files can work if they are dynamically linked to a multi-lib environment....yours sounds like it is not, or is missing the 32bit libs13:58
odinsbaneikonia: So, are you saying that would produce a 'file not found'13:58
kernkraftI install Ubuntu entreprise server but when i try to login it don't work13:58
ikoniaodinsbane: yes13:58
ikoniakernkraft: define "doesn't work"13:59
usr13touson: sudo mv /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf.old13:59
odinsbaneikonia: what if the file came with static libs, that were also 32bit?13:59
kernkraftI'm french it's difficult ..13:59
ikoniaodinsbane: it depends on how it's setup13:59
ikoniakernkraft: maybe try #ubuntu-fr ?13:59
usr13touson: And then:  sudo service gdm restart13:59
kernkraftWhen i install it there is just a mail to configure14:00
tousonusr13: I logged into the main console (not into X) and ran X -configure as root.  It  created an xorg.conf.new file in /root, which I then copied to /etc/X11/xorg.conf after updating it with the display modes14:00

boxybrownHi there15:11
bhavesh_Whenever I login into ubuntu, Unity gets selected as default.. even though I shut down my computer while in GNOME 315:11
GTRsdkikonia, do you know of a specific page on theming Ubuntu 10.04?15:11
boxybrownwe are currently using NIS for network authentication of users, and would like to update this to something more modern.  Any suggestions for what we should be using?15:11
ikoniaGTRsdk: the version doesn't matter, its' the same for any gnome 2 based distribution15:11
ikoniaGTRsdk: there doesn't need to be a specific 10.04 page, as it's the same for any gnome 2 based distro15:11
GTRsdkoh so it would work on 9.10, 10.04, 10.10, and 11.04?15:12

ikoniaGTRsdk: with compositing I believe so.15:17
ikoniaCyanure: because you are using a wildcard15:17
ikoniaCyanure: you need to quote the wildcard with find15:17

genCloneI suppose the actual version is very close to the final one.... and in case it isnt, the upgrade in a few days would involve only a few packets, isnt it?16:07
BarkingFishYou just have to look for the right part of the BIOS where you enable and disable hardware, ardithoxha16:07

BarkingFishone more thing then, ardithoxha - do you know if your sound card is one that is plugged into a slot on your motherboard, or if it's built in to the board please?16:17
dr_willisxdr4kex:  depending on whats on the cd. You can use grub2 to boot ISO files.16:17
ardithoxhadont know :(16:17
dr_willisxdr4kex:  that maybe the easiest way.16:17
ardithoxhamaybe on the board16:17

dr_willisxdr4kex:  a cool feature of grub2.16:18
dr_willisnight all16:18
BarkingFishardithoxha, there is an easy way to find out.  Look at the back of your PC where the sockets are - do your sound sockets appear with all the other sockets for mouse, keyboard and so on, or do they appear further down the back of the machine in a rectangle shaped slot?16:19

bastidrazor!swap | jkeats16:42
ubottujkeats: swap is used to move unused programs and data out of main memory to make your system faster. It can also be used as extra memory if you don't have enough. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SwapFaq for more info16:42
jkeatsi have formatted all of /dev/sdg as swap. the entire disk.16:42
jkeatsin unix, everything is a file.16:43
jkeatsi could have a 3gb file on disk, and swapon that file, and it wouldn't have to have a "partition" for it to work.16:43
bastidrazorjkeats: because a swap file is NOT a swap partition.16:43

jkeatsDisk /dev/sdg: 2147 MB, 2147483648 bytes16:45
bastidrazorjkeats: then the disk is not partitioned.16:46
jkeatsbut it doesn't need to be partitioned to use swap. what does swap care about parititioning? it is just paging memory out to it.16:47
ubottuIf 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 !mp3.16:47

AndChat|Paulus__: ok so we now know it is your settings and not the browser itself. If you rename ~/.mozilla  then rerun the browser, you will get the same result as your first user, you can copy you bookmarks (if you use them) from the old config but you will need to reinstate addons, themes and resave stored passwords. This is the only way I can think to solve it personally. Maybe others can advise a sleeker method. Maybe an addon you have is stopping the page and18:19
BenBglitchd: so, I just need new drivers for the new hardware, that's all. that must be possible with LTS, otherwise LTS is useless.18:19

TheLawnmowerManAny other suggestions?  Ubuntu sees my audio device but I still get no audio.  http://paste.ubuntu.com/701853/18:23
grendal-primei have to scan across allot of ground to get the app to fade back in..or alt tab to it..wich works...dont get me wrong.  but it seems like it would be easyer to just not fade it off and then i could just see it..and..well click on it.18:23
auronandaceBenB: i don't think you can just transfer 10.04 off the old pc to the new, you'd need to reinstall (especially since the hardware is different)18:24
AndChat|Barco: set the network interface to be bridged in the vbox config and it will get an ip from your router. You can then rdp to that ip and it will connect18:25

oCeangrendal-prime: wrong channel18:25
Picigrendal-prime: Try to stay on-topic, k?18:25
BenBauronandace: normally that works just fine. a reinstall doesn't change anything. the problem is that the drivers in 10.04 are too *old* to support the new chips. so, there must be updates for new hardware, to continue to use LTS.18:25
grendal-primeGirlyGirl, what do you know about windows that fade out after you move your mouse off of them?18:26
BenBauronandace: even if it's optional. but just telling an LTS user to install 11.10 beta is not great.18:26

glebihanBenB, no normally transferring a system for one computer to another does *not* work18:27
auronandaceBenB: i never suggested that, but the fact is that 10.04 uses an older kernel which doesn't have support for your hardware (you want support then you'll need a newer kernel)18:27

D_Russany good screen recording software?18:32
jstooneTheLawnmowerMan: Is it a newly installed box?18:33

BenBglebihan: thanks, but I don't think natty supports the AMD A8-3850, does it?18:34
TheLawnmowerManjstoone: looking at 'additional drivers'18:35
BenBglebihan: does a fresh install of 10.04 fix it?18:35
jstooneTheLawnmowerMan: What kind of computer are we talking about here? toaster?18:35
auronandaceBenB: the bottom line is that you simply need a recent kernel that supports your hardware18:35
glebihanBenB, because hardware is not the same18:35

MonkeyDustBenB: a fresh install usually is more efficient than repairing errors18:36
auronandaceBenB: exactly, that is what i've been trying to tell you18:36
TheLawnmowerManjstoone: It's saying that No proprietary drivers are in use on this system.18:36
glebihangrendal-prime, I didn't it would never work, just that it's a bad idea and is likely not to work. Now if it works for you, I'm fine with it18:36
BenBauronandace: no backports, no supported new kernel, and I am left in the cold. ubuntu clearly didn't think here. they expect me to use the same hardware for 5 years. that's unrealistic.18:36

jstooneTheLawnmowerMan: kk18:39
glebihanBenB, you can never be certain that anything will fix a problem. A reinstall is likely to solve your issues18:39
MonkeyDustBenB: if you backup first, a reinstall is no great issue18:39
BenBglebihan, MonkeyDust: guys, if 10.04 (stock) doesn't *contain* the drivers for my hardware, a reinstall is not going to fix it.18:40

compilerwriterok BluesKaj18:42
BenBMonkeyDust: no, I am trying to tell you that you shouldn't give wrong advice to people.18:42
BluesKajcompilerwriter, bbl18:42
Atamiskhow would i go about installing ubuntu onto an empty drive from a running ubuntu session?18:42
MonkeyDustBenB: wrong advice?18:43
BenBMonkeyDust: yes. suggesting a re-install (which costs about 1h), although it will not fix the problem. if you had  listened above, you would know that a reinstall cannot help.18:43
MonkeyDustBenB: just came in, I wasn't at my desk18:44
compilerwriterWhy am I seeing everything, save part and joins, twice?18:44
MonkeyDustBenB: so just repeat the initian question by pressing the up-key18:44
BenBMonkeyDust: just scroll up, or if you're too lazy for that, don't say anything.18:45
BenBMonkeyDust: I dom18:45
auronandaceMonkeyDust: BenB wasn't aware that 10.04 doesn't support the hardware he has, after he copied over his 10.04 install from an older pc (not realising that he shouldn't do that)18:45
MonkeyDustBenB: please stay polite, we're all volunteers trying to help18:45
BenBauronandace: I am aware that it may not. I was assuming that canonical cannot be so brain-dead to ignore currently sold hardware on the LTS release.18:46
BenBauronandace: I was assuming that there *must* be a way to update drivers. under windows, I just pop in the CS.18:46
BenB(and Windows XP is supported for 12 years, BTW)18:47
MonkeyDustBenB: Canonical is not brain-dead because you want to do something that is impossible18:47
BenBMonkeyDust: it is possible. I just want linux 3.1 compiled and tested for 10.04.18:47
glebihanBenB, well... you won't have that18:47
Atamiskwait, why is compiling the 3.1 kernel in 10.04 impossible??18:48
devanOk, I'm stumped. I'm trying to connect an iphone3g with iOS4.2.1, and it's not working, but it looks like it should... First thing I'm thinking to check is my version of libimobiledevice, make sure it's 1.0.4, anyone know how to check that?18:48
zebastianortisnew FP project video is out! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BilbX_HiuG018:49

CephlinDoes anyone know why the audio is out of sync when I play video's on ubuntu 11.04? This only happens on my desktop with ubuntu not my laptop with ubuntu.18:52
TheLawnmowerManjstoone: yeah, I removed my video card & put it back in.  That seemed to fix the weird graphic issues I was having.  Still no sound.  I've been working on the sound thing for a few days now18:52
Atamiskcan i use virtualbox to install ubuntu on a real HDD?18:53
BarkingFishhi again guys, has there been any sign of gigenieks yet?18:53

soreauWelshy_Rob: Can you pastebin your /etc/network/interfaces file to pastebin.com?18:55
BarkingFishsoreau, I did ask my question, did you not see it? :)18:56
soreauBarkingFish: nope18:56

compilerwriterI am trying ubuntu utilizing empathy and everyone's stuff is appearing twice what do I do to get rid of the echo?18:56
Welshy_Robsoreau:  yeah sure18:56
TheLawnmowerManjstoone: and this is what I see in terminal paste.ubuntu.com/701853/ and this is what I see when I run lspci -v | grep "Audio device" http://imgur.com/0sJMa18:56
BarkingFishMyself and fritsch were helping gigenieks in here about an hour or so back, he went afk, and I was asking if anyone had seen him again.18:56
BarkingFishas in, has he come back since we last saw him.18:56
oCeanoiyeu: yes, from the history. That should work by default18:56
soreau! broadcom | ichat18:56
ubottuichat: Help with Broadcom bcm43xx can be found at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WifiDocs/Driver/bcm43xx18:56
TheLawnmowerManjstoone: so something is not making sense and I'm not sure how to put it all together18:56
oiyeuyes but read my question18:57
IdleOneBarkingFish: We don't keep track of every users away status. PM them and see if they are there.18:57
oiyeui got a list of command instead of calling from history i want to calling it from my custom file where i got list of command18:57
Welshy_Robsoreau: http://pastebin.com/0Hh3rkmE18:58
soreauoiyeu: Put them in a script?18:58
oCeanoiyeu: oh, you would have to script that, but still the !2 command would be interpreted from the shell, not from your script18:58
oCeanoiyeu: since !2 command already exists (it is shell built-in) you have to override that. Anyway it would require some scripting, there's no easy way to do that18:59
auronandaceoCean: could he set aliases?18:59
sianhulohow it's called unity 2d process?18:59
oCeanoiyeu: if you're looking to create aliases as auronandace suggests, you can add those in your ~/.bashrc file19:00
soreauWelshy_Rob: Does 'ifconfig' show eth0 or eth1? (or both?)19:00
Welshy_Robsoreau: eth119:00
soreauWelshy_Rob: Is
