ubot2samsul: Please do not use noisy away messages and nicks in Ubuntu channels. It is annoying and unnecessary. Use the command "/away <reason>" to set your client away silently. See also Ā«/msg ubottu GuidelinesĀ»11:23

SanbarComputingsangelion:  Oh, last instead of first20:21
SanbarComputingPM?20:22
sangelionpm?20:22
SanbarComputingPrivate message - if you want further help from me in private on this problem.20:22
sangelionim new in this xchat.. still dont know how to pm20:22
SanbarComputingYah, me too - I think I will open a new channel for us using your name, and you just join.  Want to try?20:23
sangelionok..20:23
sangelionhehehe20:23
sangelionhow?? is it works?20:24
SanbarComputingdoesn't seem to be working ... hey, all, how do I pm sangelion in irssi?20:25
SanbarComputingOh, /q - here, I'll try again, sangelion20:26
SanbarComputingsanglion: try to join channel #sangelion now for our pm ...20:26
SanbarComputingsangelion:20:27
SanbarComputingsangelion:  there may not be a # in front of it, and it may already be in a window in xchat.20:28
sangelionSanbanComputing: still there?20:29
SanbarComputingsangelion:  yes, want to try again?20:29
sangelionyes..20:29
sangelioni already inside #sangelion20:29
SanbarComputingsangelion:  I misdirected you - quite #sangelion - it is a pm called sangeiion without the # - you should already have a window for it, I think ... just switch to the pm window somehow20:31
SanbarComputings/sangeiion/sangelion/20:31
sangelion?? don't understand20:32
SanbarComputingOK, just go to #sangelion - that will work as well.  It won't be a pm, but it will work.20:33
head_victimSanbarComputing: re the wiki page thing, that might be a change in recent versions of Ubuntu. Feel free to update the wiki with the correct informaion. Afterall, wiki's are meant to be edited by many :)20:44
SanbarComputinghead_victim:  I thought about that, but it is immutable, I think ... for me ...20:56
head_victimSanbarComputing: that usually means you just have to log in.20:56
SanbarComputinghead_victim:  OK, let me try ...21:08
SanbarComputingActually, the problem is with an externally referenced site, now that I look at it better.  This site needs to say (I believe) that you do not need to do anything special for Natty explicitly to install the software:  http://www.ubuntugeek.com/bazaar-explorer-advanced-version-control-made-simple.html21:11
SanbarComputinghead_victim:  However, the Wiki could add a blurb to that effect before the link reference, and maybe that would help - when I used the tutorial, I got confused, so it would have helped to have it spelled out.  Maybe it is obvious to everyone but me, though ... :)21:12
SanbarComputinghead_victim:  looking at it, I think that the Wiki should directly give the very simple instructions for Natty install (just sudo apt-get install qbzr bzr-explorer, i am pretty sure) then refer people to the tutorial only if they are on versions before Natty.  Also, there is a broken link as well.  Should I go ahead and make the necessary changes?21:23
SanbarComputing(after verifying that the instructions work on my natty machine, of course)21:24
SanbarComputinghead_victim: and, if I make the changes now, would you mind peer reviewing them for me?21:25
SanbarComputing(or anyone else listening for that matter)21:26
s-foxHello.21:30
SanbarComputingAnyway, I would be glad to make an update to the Wiki, but hesitate to without some sort of oversight from a peer since I am brand new.22:05
sluckxzhow do i switch runlevels? telinit 3 doesnt do anything.22:57
nlsthznsluckxz: I have switched with sudo init 3 before I think22:58
