bazhangStockholm_Angel, you mean / ? excluding home?00:06
tux-mattbazhang how can i run it or can i00:06
Stockholm_Angelbazhang, no like the old xubuntu eeepc machines had00:06
bazhangtux-matt, what do you mean by run it00:06
Stockholm_Angelbazhang,  where if anything went wrong it could be used to reinstall a new system from the 4gb partition00:07
tux-mattbazhang like you are running xchat right now00:07
bazhangStockholm_Angel, sorry not clear; you wish to do a complete backup of your eeepc install? like an image or the like?00:07

robin0800crash1hd, I think you need to adjust your bios as I have an asus motherboard and that also defaulted to the pata drive and not sata00:42
Gale0nHey, no one answered me yet :/00:42
Gale0nHow do I check if a file = -x only00:42
molganGale0n: I don't know much about it, any indepth manuals on it?00:43
crash1hdrobin0800, so did you put your boot drive on the pata or the sata?00:43
molganI've search google..00:43
Gale0nmolgan: no, sorry :(00:43
Gale0nAll my knowledge was self-taught00:43
Gale0nNo prob00:43
th0rmolgan: check the linux documentation project...tldp.org00:43
yeracGale0n: what after reinstall? restart?00:43
robin0800crash1hd, on the sata look in the bios menu under boot00:44
molganGale0n: ah, ok. and lol that's how I have learned linux so far00:44
molganth0r: looking....00:44
Gale0nyerac: Try now gnome-appearance-properties00:44
th0rmolgan: might start with the bash scripting guides that are there00:44
Gale0nIf it doesn't work, re-start computer00:44
crash1hdrobin0800, yeah I have it set to sata and I changed the boot order i just cant figure it out00:44
robin0800crash1hd, mine had an entry below the normal boot order that said something like configure disk drives its that one that was wrong00:46
Gale0nHow do I check if a file is -x only, and then echo it out ?00:47
Gale0nI tried ls, and find00:48
SIFTUGale0n: find should do it00:48
Jordan_Ucrash1hd: Don't worry about how drives are enumerated, all Ubuntu configuration files use UUIDs so that drive order doesn't matter. On many machines it will even change from one boot to the next so you should not depend on it anyway.00:48
Gale0nFind didn't00:48
Gale0nI wanna echo it out00:48
Gale0nI use a for loop00:48
Gale0nIt won't work :(00:48
SIFTUGale0n: seems to work for me00:48
Jordan_UGale0n: What is your entire end goal? Please give as much detail as possible.00:48

Gale0nbazhang: No, Sauerbraten server00:49
SIFTUGale0n: replace your permissions you want to search for00:49
Gale0nJordan_U: I wanna echo out if a file is executable, using a for loop to list the files00:49
Jordan_UGale0n: That's not an end goal. That's a step toward a larger goal (your real end goal): http://catb.org/~esr/faqs/smart-questions.html#goal00:50
Gale0nI wanna check for permissions of the files, in order to block out a part of a script, using an "if" statement00:51
SIFTUGale0n: or "find  . -executable"00:51
yeracErrors were encountered while processing:00:51

Jordan_UGale0n: That's still not an end goal. Please read the link I gave you.00:51
yeraci will restart00:52
Gale0nI'm trying to list the files with executable permissions (with a for loop) and then use that to see if a auto-permission script should be enabled00:53
SIFTUGale0n: why do you need  for loop00:54
SIFTUGale0n: why not use find and output it to a file and process that if you need00:54
Jordan_UGale0n: That's still not an end goal.00:55
Gale0nOtherwise I have to re-write all the files to be checked, one by one, with its own command00:55
Gale0nJordan_U: yes it is :/00:55
SIFTUGale0n: ask in #bash00:55
yerak_Gale0n: i restarted, nothing changed00:56
yerak_do u have more ideas?00:56
Gale0nyerak_: No, sorry :(00:56
Jordan_UGale0n: From earlier comments you've made I would assume that your end goal is "To make a script that automates the installation of a Sauerbraten server". But I would expect that such an installation script already exists so I'm wondering why you need to write a script of your own. End goal means end of the line, top level, what you're actually trying to accomplish.00:57
yerak_Gale0n: th problem appear after i update ubutu from  xx.xx.08 to xx.xx.1100:57
Gale0nyerak: Type unity00:57
Gale0nIn terminal00:57
Gale0nThat's the new GUI00:58
Gale0nOr wairt00:58
Gale0nWait *00:58
Gale0nyerak_: Type nohup unity &00:58
SIFTUGale0n: you explained it different in #bash00:59
SIFTUGale0n: or "find  . -executable -exec <function> \;"00:59
Gale0nSIFTU I tried that01:00
Gale0nAlso, <function> = $i01:00

yeracGale0n: i typed unitiy and got unity and then everything froze, what should i type now01:02
yeracnohup unity?01:03

dr_willisDesertFoxNight:  cant recall ever seeing a way to use apt to install packages to differnt locations.  Never needed to. Why doyou want to do this?01:54
ChogyDanmdlueck: the computer should post even if the drive is dead, no?01:54
mdlueckChogyDan: Ja, I have not seen anything like it in 24yrs of working with PC's.01:55

delinquentmeanyone have any thoughts on why i can't burn a 4.5 gig image onto a 4.7 gig dvd?01:55
DesertFoxNightI'm unable to install vsftpd on Ubuntu Server.01:55
mdlueckChogyDan: I only get the nVidia BIOS, next is black screen with the FDD light stuck on01:55
dr_willismdlueck:  how large are these hard drives?01:55
=== callmeallah is now known as sdsds
mdlueckChogyDan: Switch HDD's back to the 9.04 HDD and it POST's / boots fine01:55
dr_willisDesertFoxNight:  and why are you unable to do so?01:56
mdlueckThe new drive is a 1TB, the existing one is 500GB01:56
delinquentmeooo wait there are virtual .iso mounting programs for ubuntu right?01:56
dr_willisdelinquentme:  the normal ubuntu tools can mount iso files just fine.01:57
dr_willisNo need for anything fancy01:57
ubottuTo mount an ISO disc image, type « sudo mount -o loop <ISO-filename> <mountpoint> » - There is a list of useful cd image conversion tools at http://wiki.linuxquestions.org/wiki/CD_Image_Conversion - Always verify the ISO using !MD5 before !burning.01:57
DesertFoxNightI don't know. Ubuntu Server is connected to the internet.01:57
ChogyDanmdlueck: have you tried 9.04 on the new drive?01:57
dr_willisthere are gui front ends to that mount command/options01:57
=== mike is now known as Guest8850
delinquentmeohh sweet !01:57
delinquentmethanks dr_willis01:57
dr_willisDesertFoxNight:  you do a 'sudo apt-get install YourFTPserver' and you get some errors?01:57
mdlueckChogyDan: No, went straight to 10.04.3 x64 both times. 9.04 is x86 though.01:58
DesertFoxNightI'm using the root account.01:58
=== Guest8850 is now known as mikedep333-seren
dr_willisDesertFoxNight:  and you get some errors when you do try to install the ftp server?  errors such as?01:58
ChogyDanmdlueck: I would start there, make sure the drive is working.  Try a 9.04 x86 install   (but thats just me)01:58
dr_willisbe back in about an hr.. gotta run to work.01:59
mdlueckChogyDan: But now the system will not even POST, after loading 10.04.3 x64, if the drive is attached.01:59
DesertFoxNightI get, "Failed to fetch http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/, E: Unable to fetch some archives, maybe run apt-get update or try with --fix-mising?01:59
mdlueckChogyDan: I see the nVidia BIOS screen, then a blank screen with a cursor, and the FDD light is stuck on.02:00
ChogyDanmdlueck: by post, you mean you can't even get to the bios?02:00
mdlueckChogyDan: Ja02:01
mdlueckChogyDan: Should go from nVidia BIOS screen to Intel BIOS screen02:01
ChogyDanmdlueck: but before you installed 10.04, it would work with that drive being connected, correct?02:01
mdlueckChogyDan: How loading 10.04.3 x64 can do that much "damage" is beyond me... Yes about checking that the drive was recognized in the BIOS prior to booting 10.04.3 x64 LiveCD02:02
mdlueckChogyDan: And the LiveCD saw the brand new 1TB drive just fine02:03
mdlueckChogyDan: BOTH times...02:03
mdlueckChogyDan: I would think if the hardware was not x64 compatible, it would not even boot the LiveCD, correct?02:04
mdlueckChogyDan: I have never run x64 code on this computer02:04
mdlueckChogyDan: BIOS is at the latest Intel release02:05
ChogyDanmdlueck: have you tried deleting the drive? and seeing that it works then?  fwiw, Im no expert, but either you missed something, or the drive suddenly went bad.  Either is a PITA02:05
ChogyDanmdlueck: what is the motherboard model?02:05
mdlueckChogyDan: How to "delete" a drive on a system which will not POST if it is attached?02:06

crash1hdOk I have a new System that I am about to install ubuntu on I have a choice I can either install ubuntu from LiveCD or LiveUSB or LiveUSBEFI which is my best option I am mostly curious about the EFI if anyone knows more about that?02:06
eldanijoin #peru02:06
mdlueckcrash1hd: Install from CD is best choice02:07
mdlueckcrash1hd: LiveCD02:07
crash1hdmdlueck, why?02:07
mdlueckcrash1hd: More people do it, so tested better02:08
neoarkanyone know how to fix this error: SIOCDIFADDR: Cannot assign requested address02:08
neoarkgetting that on networking restart02:08
mdlueckcrash1hd: I see reports of installing from USB and the boot loader gets put to the wrong place02:08
crash1hdmdlueck, well I did try from USB and it created an ubuntu bootloader option in the bios which I have never seen done before02:09
ChogyDanmdlueck: well, it looks like the board supports x64 processors (core2duo etc)02:09
jsemarso hey guys, I have been using avahi for my local network for some time and it has all seemed to work pretty well for most devices (wireless and otherwise) however, for my android phone, it doesn't seem to work (dns doesn't resolve) does android just not work for this or is there another way?02:09
mdlueckChogyDan: Ja, I would think if the system can boot the LiveCD that should be good enough affirmation that it can run x6402:10
ChogyDanmdlueck: maybe pull the drive out, and wave a kitchen magnet around it02:10
ChogyDanmdlueck: yeah, I think so too02:10

dee-deehi guys02:12
edbiandelinquentme: it's not as simple but the short answer is /usr/bin02:12

neoarkor good with sorting out ipv6 problems02:13
dee-deeI just installed Ubuntu 11.04 on my dell mini 9. I've never had problems with wireless, but now... The driver for the wireless card is installed and it works. But it cant see my router. Other routers yes, but mine...no. Im using a dlink dir300. Am I missing something?02:14
MrSassyPantsI have an inexpicable 3000kbit traffic on udp port 13702:15
MrSassyPantsI just shot down smbd and it's still going02:15
MrSassyPantsI believe it's going to the networks' printer02:16
th0rMrSassyPants: it is windows netbios http://www.iss.net/security_center/advice/Exploits/Ports/137/default.htm02:20
MrSassyPantsth0r, It's definitely traffic between printer and ubuntu server, I've never seen anything like that02:21
MrSassyPantssome sort of feedback?02:21
robin0800dee-dee, something wrong with your router I would say02:21
MrSassyPantsfeedback loop, I mean02:21
dee-deerobin0800, would a rebooting the router help?02:22
robin0800dee-dee, can't do any harm02:23
dee-deeI'll try that then. Thx02:23
MrSassyPantsmy printer sends 3000kbit/s udp on 137 to my ubuntu server, any idea why?02:29
MrSassyPantsit's a samsung 285002:30
dee-deerobin0800, It works :) Thanks a lot02:31
robin0800MrSassyPants, perhaps there is a hung print process that makes the printer keep talking to the originating server02:32
MrSassyPantsrobin0800, hmm02:32
MrSassyPantsnetstat -u reports nothing, which isn't true02:33
robinschi need help02:33
robin0800MrSassyPants, recycle the printer02:33
robinschi got 32bit setup for utorrent server to run on my 64 bit natty02:34
robinschi want the server to auto start at logon (not startup)02:34
robinschhow do i get the executable to run in background?02:34
robinsch./utserver& works but i don't know how to get it to work at startup02:35
MrSassyPantsok, netstat --udp -l -n | grep \:137 produced some output02:36
th0rrobinsch: put it in .profile02:36
MrSassyPantsbut how can I figure out what program it is? is there something like lsof for ports?02:36
th0rrobinsch: I think .bash_login will work also02:37
robinschbrb, ill give it a shot th0r02:38
MrSassyPantsok, the process was nmbd02:41
lost127when enabling remote, it only allows me to access it via localhost. how do i change this? it is connected via eth0 and has an IP address.02:42
cappicardhmm.. looks like i cannot undervolt my toshiba satellite C655-S5082 (Celeron 900 2.2GHz)02:46
robinschth0r: thats, it worked02:47
fdgeone trick to get a process to run in the background would be to have the output go to a file02:47
fdge/path/to/binary > logfile.log02:47
fdgeor if you don't want a file02:47
th0rrobinsch: no problem...you're welcome <smile>02:47

puffI'm running ubuntu 10.4 LTS on a thinkpad t520. a) how do I get the wired connection working, and b) is it possible to get both the wired and wireless connections working simultaneously?03:03
puffI'm trying to set up a router via web interface, which is firewalled from the wireless side.  And I don't have a second machine handy to look stuff up while I'm trying to figure this out.03:03
puffhm, on second thought, forget b), I just want to get this thing working.03:04
puffWhen I do "sudo ifconfig -a" it only shows me wlan0. Is w for wireless? Where's the wired interface?03:04
rypervenchepuff: Normally you just plug it in and it works. It shold be eth003:04
puffSo if I"m on wireless and I plug the wire in, it should automatically turn off wireless and turn on wired?03:05
krenfrowAtharva: check out http://ubuntu.mirrors.tds.net/pub/releases/03:05
Atharva<krenfrow> : ok..03:05
rypervenchepuff: That I'm not sure how it works. It has always shown them both as connected...not sure exactly which takes priority.03:05

puffEr, System/Preferences/Network Connections.03:09
rypervenchepuff: Let me think... I don't use Gnome anymore... uhhh It's the applet on your toolbar with your wireless bars. Click on it to show what available connections there are.03:09
puffrypervenche: Yeah, that's the one... just shows wireless stuff.03:09
rypervenchepuff: You tried plugging in your ethernet cable?03:10
puffHmm, wonder if there's some sort of hardware switch that disables wireless.03:10
rypervencheDo you see eth0 when you ifconfig -a ?03:10

bazhangrapage, so nothing about ubuntu04:12
IridiumScaffoldrapage: i have this problem sometimes04:12
bazhangrapage, ##windows for that04:12
IridiumScaffoldrapage: the solution is to use cygwin to copy the file somewhere else.04:12
lhdccould anyone give me some advice on how should I find duplicate files by content, not filename,size or date04:12
IridiumScaffoldI can't remember what it turned out actually caused it.04:12
IridiumScaffoldlhdc: FSLint is good for this.04:13
bazhangrapage, wrong channel:  ##windows for windows support04:13
lhdcIridiumScaffold: thanks iridium. thatś a nice tool04:16
Brewmaster619Yeah, but rapage would get better answers here; nobody at ##windows would have a clue04:16
bazhangBrewmaster619, not true actually, and moot. this is ubuntu support only04:19
rapageas far I get cygwin is an app for windows that provides unix tools04:19

juxta_I've recently installed a kernel update, on reboot a module that's automatically compiled by DKMS is not loading - it seems to be compiled against something other than the current linux-headers. Is it possible to tell DKMS to rebuild a module?04:22
IridiumScaffoldjuxta: if you run dkms uninstall on the module04:23
IridiumScaffoldand then re-add it with dkms it'll be built against the current kernel correctly04:23
IridiumScaffoldit's probably happening because the makefile uses something other then the ${kernelver} environment variable to find linux headers.04:23
juxta_IridiumScaffold, thanks - I will give it a shot right now04:24
juxta_it's a networking module annoyingly enough which means I'm out in the garage where the machine is trying to fix it :)04:25
lhdcI've put scripts in folder /usr/bin that links to the shell script in my ~/bin folder, that way I can Alt+F2 and type in the script name. Is there any other way I can achieve the same effect if Im not root, or sudoer?04:26
lsvdoes anyone knows how to remove software from bash?04:26
lsvmy brother installed "wine" but I don't want it, and I need to free some space.04:27
crash1hdJust wondering if I install ubuntu and place the home director on its own partition how big should the partition that contains the ubuntu os be?04:28
bazhanglsv, sudo apt-get remove packagename04:28
javier_Hi. I have some problems with errors in my hard drive and I'm going to format it and reinstall ubuntu. Shold I follow any advice in order to recover my hard-drive "health" before the new instalation=04:28
linuxuz3rhey bazhang04:28
linuxuz3rcan you do me a favor can i message you04:28
Gale0njavier_: what problems04:28
bazhanglinuxuz3r, ok04:29
lsvbazhang: thanks.  Would that remove everything dealing with wine?04:29
bazhanglsv, you wish to use the purge option?04:29
dr_willispurgeing wine will not delete apps installed with wine. ie; user installed windows games04:30
lsvbazhang: yeah something like that.  I just want to free as much space as possible.  But I don't know if that would remove some stuff that other programs would need.04:30
juxta_IridiumScaffold, I've uninstalled it and reinstalled it with DKMS, but it still complains of an invalid module format04:30
qinlsv: sudo apt-get purge wine<TAB> (wine 1.2 or 1.3) also rm -r ~/.wine (carefull, will remove all stuff installed in wine)04:30
bazhanglsv, the config files won't be that much space04:31
molganhello ubuntu guyz04:31
Gale0nHi again molgan04:31
javier_Gale0n: I hear some strange noise when it's working hard, and when I check hard drive usage, it's says there are sectors with errors04:31
Gale0n<<< Gale0n04:31
Gale0njavier_: Sounds like hardware problems04:32
IridiumScaffoldjustxa_: sorry I misled you. you need to use the "remove" function04:32
SIFTUjavier_: do not use that drive then04:32
Gale0nIf you physically hear it04:32
theTwizhi all04:32
SIFTUjavier_: run smartmontools on it04:32
molganlolz, I am working on the current user uptime, and hit a bit of a snag, but looking into it.04:32
lsvthanks dr_willis, qin, and bazhang.  I'll try what qin said.04:32
molganit's for a conky config.04:32
Gale0nWhat's the snag? :F04:32
IridiumScaffoldjuxta_: the order of events is "dkms remove" and then "dkms uninstall" and then "dkms install"04:32
javier_SIFTU: How to run that?04:32
molgangetting it only to display the user uptime04:33
IridiumScaffoldraw dkms uninstall doesn't remove the built module, so it doesn't get rebuilt when you instal l it04:33
brandonIs it possible to allow a non-root user to dd directly to a specific harddrive, but not any other. I need this to stay through removing the drive, so moddify /dev/sdb won't work.04:33
molganI can use ${user_times}04:33
juxta_IridiumScaffold, righto - sorry, my mistake04:33
Gale0nmolgan: That's what we were talking about earlier ><04:33
SIFTUjavier_: I have a script if you would like.. make sure you have smartmontools installed04:33
juxta_just did it now and it seems to have worked :)04:33
IridiumScaffoldbrandon: sounds like you need to make a udev rule. i'm not familiar with how though.04:33
molganGale0n: I may have not seen that comment...04:34
juxta_what would you suggest I look at to prevent it from happening next kernel update IridiumScaffold?04:34
Gale0nmolgan: what comment04:34
SIFTUbrandon: possibly with a udev rule04:34
javier_to be honest, I'm not sure if it's a hard drive stuff. What happens is (both in windows and ubuntu) that some times it start working hardly (slow and so on and hard working) and a strange noice starts sounding, and it sound bad. Then, after a minute or so, it get's back to normal04:34
molganGale0n: I don't know which, the last comment about user uptime04:35
Gale0njavier_: hardware problem04:35
brandonSIFTU: thanks, it looks like google can take it from here04:35
Gale0nmolgan: Lol, it never worked04:35
dr_willistime to invest in a new hd. soon04:35
SIFTUjavier_: I PMed you my script04:36
javier_Gale0n: how could I check what concrete problem I have?04:36
qinjavier_: Your harddrive is saing: back up me before i will die.04:36
Gale0njavier_: I'm not a hardware guy :(04:36
somsipjavier_: I am learning this the hard way as we speak...04:36
molganGale0n: do you use conky?04:36
Gale0njavier_: I agree with qin04:36
Gale0nmolgan: nope04:36
Gale0nI don't know what it is ^^04:37
dr_willisbad sectors are bad. no cookies for them04:37
molgantext based system moniter injected into your desktop.04:37
Gale0nmolgan: oh ok.04:38
molgananyone know conky well?04:38
javier_qin, Gale0n: it's what I think, that can be hard drive stuff. What I thought I could better do (I have back up already) is to reinstall everything, and maybe it will work a bit lighter and it will be better04:38
dr_willisconky has gained a lot of features lately04:38
bazhangmolgan, let me get you a guide04:38
molganGale0n: well from command ${user_times} I get tty0h 10m 43s04:38
Gale0njavier_: Get a new had drive04:38
bazhanghttp://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=867076   molgan04:38
SIFTUjavier_: more blocks will go bad and the drive will die.. get a new one if you have tested it and it failed04:39
molganbazhang: looking....04:39
javier_Gale0n: but I'm I going to change hard drive while this still works?04:39
javier_SIFTU: to test it is that script?04:39
SIFTUjavier_: that will do a test on all drives in your system04:39
Gale0njavier_: Yes, unless you wanna wait till the last possible second, where your harddisk explodes04:39
SIFTUjavier_: I use it on my RAID array04:40
javier_SIFTU: how to do it? run that on terminal?04:41
Kaigeoscan anyone tell me the path to linux-headers-2.6.38-11-generic is? vmware player needs it, apt-get say's it's already installed.04:41

SIFTUjavier_: yes on a terminal04:41
lsvthanks for the help.  Wine is gone and the ~/.wine is also gone.04:41

Brewmaster619lsv: very nicely04:45

lsvw30: drive space?  On my laptop or the eee pc?04:46
w30lsv, on the mini you want04:47
l403do you guys know which live does support ext4. I guess thats my real question04:47
bazhangl403, ext4 all ubuntu support that04:47
lsvw30: I think it has 320 Gb or something.  Let me check.04:47
ar9how can I acces a windows machine that doesn't have a password? it works fine with a password but not whitout04:48

ubottuGale0n: lubuntu is a project to create a derivative of Ubuntu using the LXDE desktop environment. See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Lubuntu . /join #lubuntu for lubuntu support.04:53
soreauGalaxor: ubuntu with lxde as default04:53
qinlsv: You really want to pass laptop type with term like "linux" "ubuntu" "wifi" "webcam", etc to google, to see what is feedback.04:54
w30lsv, yeah, my big laptop needs a trailer to haul it on and a portable generator for more than 2 hours of life04:54

rustyshacklefordI'm having trouble getting my ubuntu box to output to my tv. I have a DVI to VGA converter, and the VGA to composite cable. it outputs fine to my DVI monitor (which I'm currently using). Any thoughts as to how I can troubleshoot this?05:01
jausfeldmay I ask a question here?05:02
rustyshacklefordyou mean another question.05:03
rustyshacklefordyes :)05:03
jausfeldthanks.  I think I have read just about every wifi hotspot help guide on the net and for the life of me I cannot seem to get mine to work right.05:03
jausfeldI have eth0 connected to a linksys router which assigns and ip no prob.05:04
jausfeldI can ping the world without issues.05:04
jausfeldI have also set up isc-server and hostapd for the wifi card.05:04
rustyshacklefordre: my problem, that should have said component cable, not composite05:05
jausfeldIt broadcasts no problem connects clients and assignes ip addresses in the expected range.05:05
jausfeldIf wlan0 and eth0 are all ok05:05
Kaigeoshow would you uninstall an app you installed from a .bundle file?05:06
jausfeldwhy can any client connected to wlan0 not get to the internet?05:06
crash1hdSomething that seems to be missing from any of the ubuntu guides regarding partitioning (unless I cant seem to find it) is a decent guide on how big each partition should be and why? does anyone know of such guide?05:06
bazhangcrash1hd, how big a hdd05:06
crash1hdI am installing windows 7 and ubuntu, I am thinking of having my boot partition on its own as well as my home directory on its own partition the hdd I am planning on having this on is 250gb05:06
villahow can I extract data from a commen file?05:07
crash1hdbazhang, oh and I will be having an 8gb swap cause there is 8gb in the system05:07
crash1hdbazhang, also everything I am storing will be on my other 4 drives that are 2TB each for storage05:08
bazhangcrash1hd, ntfs for those?05:08
crash1hdno ext405:08
bazhangcrash1hd, shared 2TB?05:08
crash1hdhow do you mean?05:08
lsvwell, I must go.  Thanks for all the help, it was awesome talking to you all.  Bye :D05:08
crash1hdprimarily an ubuntu system only adding windows 7 for the occasional game05:08
crash1hdso it will have a very small foot print05:09
bazhangcrash1hd, the 4 shared 2TB wil be ntfs, right?05:09
crash1hdno they are ext405:09
bazhangcrash1hd, windows wont be able to access that05:09
crash1hdthey already have data on them05:09
crash1hdI know05:09
crash1hdnot worried about that05:09
crash1hdthis is a media server05:09
crash1hdand I feel ext is safer then ntfs05:10
bazhanghow much for windows7 ?05:10
crash1hdexactly thats the part I am not sure05:10
crash1hdwhat would be the min05:10
crash1hdfiguring 25gb05:10
crash1hdor 20 even05:10
bazhang##windows probably but that sounds about right05:10
crash1hdyeah for sure :) I am more curious about how much space for ubuntu when the /home directory is on its own partition05:11
bazhangso /boot / /swap and /home , correct ?05:11
crash1hdand / yes05:11
crash1hdoh crud didnt see your / lol sorry05:11
bazhang 20 for / would be generous05:11
crash1hdyeah figure /boot = 250mb /swap = 8gb / = ? and /home =  remaining05:11
crash1hdthat gives lots of room for app installing05:12
bazhangyou'd have to install nearly every package05:12
crash1hdwould I be able to do the same with 10 or 15 or would I be constricting it by that point?05:12
bazhang15 would be fine05:12
bazhang /home would be by far the largest05:13
bazhangaround 200 GB if my math is right05:13
jausfeldQuestion:  eth0 works ok, wlan0 (master) works ok, comes up on boot and auto broadcasts.  eth0 and wlan0 are on different subnets.  Clients connecting via wlan0 are assigned IP address in the expected range.  But unfortunatly they cannot ping eth0 or get online05:14
crash1hdwhich makes sense05:14
jausfeldBridge utilities or my configuration (interpretation of configuration) does not work either.05:14
crash1hdbazhang, problem is I dont know what I would put in those 200 lol since /downloads is its own drive05:14
bazhangcrash1hd, well a nice luxury to have, but that partitioning scheme sounds fine05:15
crash1hdI guess I could make it 10gb for / as I can always resize it later as long as the /home is not full05:15
crash1hdor do you think I should make it 15 to be on the safe side05:15
bazhangbetter to err on the side of too much than too little imo crash1hd05:16
crash1hdhmm I know what will fill up the 200 lol ubuntus version of vmware images lol05:16
crash1hdgood point :)05:17
aaasanyone set up a squid proxy to allow connection from an external ip?05:18
crash1hdhmm I had installed ubuntu onto this drive already (just as a quick test) and it installed a 20mb /boot/efi thats fat16 what is that all about?05:18
tomas__Hello, can someone help me with a problem installing Kubuntu 11.04?05:19
theTwizim getting a "lost page write due to I/O error" in my syslog everytime I attempt to transfer a large file via ftp, and the entire filesystem goes into read-only. the drive passes SMART. this does not occur on my other two drives in a raid 0 array. any ideas?05:20
g0rstomas__: ask your question directly05:20
g0rstomas__: you better ask in #kubuntu05:20

bazhangtomas__, from an install cd?05:21
g0rsbazhang: he left05:23
crash1hdSo if I understan the logic of moving /home to its own partition if I have another /home and I use it on a new install will it automatically know all the programs and reinstall them? or am I not understanding it right?05:27

jausfeldBridge utilities or my configuration (interpretation of configuration) does not work either.05:29
SIFTUjausfeld: so you are bridging instead of routing? with 2 diff subnets?05:30
jausfeldThanks for reaching out SIFTU05:31
jausfeldI would rather make a simple wifi hotspot.05:31
jausfeldso they do not "have" to be on different subnets.05:31
SIFTUjausfeld: ok so you want both interfaces on the same subnet05:31
SIFTUand yes you would do that with bridgeutils05:32
jausfeldand it is installed.05:32
jausfeldbridge utils05:32
jausfeldbut when I put in the simple link the whole system crashes05:32

mtnman80Anyone at all?05:44
pAt_mtnman80: just wrirte you problem and lets see then if anyone can help you out05:47
theTwizim getting I/O errors on one disk - how do I determine if it is hardware failure or configuration/software failure?05:48
theTwizalready ran smartctrl, and the drive passed05:48
mtnman80pAt_: because I did not safely remove an USB flash drive before shutting down my computer ... and then removed it after shutting down ... my computer now does not complete startup ...05:50
mtnman80I am running Ubuntu ...05:50
mtnman80pAt_: I am running Ubuntu ...05:51
MithadonI love ubuntu 10.04 but 11.04 pisses me off05:51
Mithadonjoin #wolfgame !05:51
mtnman80pAt_: I think it is trying to read the USB flash drive.  I plugged it back in, but it is still having the same problem ...05:51
pangolinMithadon: Please don't advertise/spam in here.05:51
Mithadonalright, sorry05:51
mtnman80pAt_: trying to read the flash drive upon startup, I mean ..05:52
* kandrew comforts Mithadon05:52
pAt_mtnman80: I ment to ask the crowed, not me ;)05:52
mtnman80Can anyone help me with my problem?05:52
mtnman80When I startup my IBM Thinkpad (running strictly Ubuntu) it is trying to read a USB flash drive that was not "safely removed" before shutting down last time ... and then USB drive was physically removed after shutting down ...05:53
mtnman80Do I have to manipulate something in the BIOS settings to get it to properly startup again?05:54
mtnman80I would really appreciate anyone's help!05:55
mtnman80I really sucks that currently I cannot use my computer because of this stupid problem ...05:55
mtnman80it really sucks, I mean ...05:55
crash1hdIf creating a boot partition should I make it ext 2 3 or 4?05:56
mtnman80pAt_: OK, I'm not getting any responses.  Is there a better channel to ask this question in?05:56
pAt_I would check the BIOS settings for the first boot device and change that in case mtnman8005:56
pAt_no mtnman80 its is the right channel, but maybe not the best time05:57
mtnman80pAt_: OK, let me tell you the choices I have in the BIOS settings ... and see if you can help properly order the devices that the system references when starting up ...05:57
crash1hdmtnman80, not that I have any idea on this but have you tried putting the thumbdrive back in? before restarting05:58
mtnman80crash1hd: yes, I have.  Still have the same problem.  Good thought, though :)05:59
crash1hdwhere does it lockup?05:59
raj-darkmysterystrange issue useradd: cannot lock /etc/passwd; try again later.06:01
mtnman80crash1hd: right after the introductory IBM Thinkpad screen (which also allows for the option of entering the BIOS settings), it just goes to a blank screen with one letter at the top ...06:01
crash1hdhmm that is odd06:01
crash1hdwhat is the letter?06:01
mtnman80crash1hd: letter j06:01
crash1hdhave you tried to boot with a different device in the usb port?06:02
crash1hdI am just shooting out longshot ideas06:02
crash1hdas I know the feeling of frustration06:02
mtnman80crash1hd: I can try with the other flash drive that I have.  We'll see if that works ...06:02
crash1hdseems odd but maybe the only other thing you can do is go into your bios and look for anything that says usb and disable it06:03
NickMindsomeone clear my head.  This line:  *.*;auth,authpriv.none          -/var/log/syslog ...  I my syslog.conf said all messages are writing to syslog.  Correct?06:04
nronksrwhat other app can I use to get an iso to usb for usb-booting?  unetbootin isn't working properly on this system.06:04
NickMindBut when i look in syslog file i don't see all.06:04
mtnman80crash1hd: when I plugged in the other USB drive, the black screen after the introductory IBM screen now says "Invalid system disk.  Replace the disk, and then place any key ..."06:04
crash1hdsounds like your bios is trying to boot from the usb device06:05
mtnman80crash1hd: ok.  let me go into BIOS and see if I can disable any of the USB settings ... just a sec ...06:05
crash1hdyou need to look into your bios settings for boot order or keep pressing f8 usually gives you the ability to boot from choice06:05
crash1hddont disable06:05
crash1hdmtnman80, look for boot order06:06
crash1hdand change it so that the usb device is not at the front06:06
mtnman80yeah, I've been playing with the boot order.  let me tell you what I have when I get to that screen in BIOS .... just a sec ...06:07
mtnman80crash1hd: yeah, I know ... if I can just get it to boot up ... then I will plug the USB drive I originally had in again ... and properly remove it ... and restart ... to reset the system (if you will)06:09
mtnman80crash1hd: "HDD0" and "HDD1" is the hard drive, right?06:09
mtnman80crash1hd: "IDE HDD0" and "IDE HDD1", that is ... ???06:10
crash1hdthose are hard drives06:10
archmage_whats the IDE stand for06:10
mtnman80crash1hd: This did not work last time I tried this, but I will let you know what i get on the black screen ...06:11
mtnman80crash1hd: This is what I got: "PXE-E61: Media test failure.  Check Cable" and "PXE-M0F: Exiting Broadcom PXE ROM"06:12
mtnman80crash1hd: ... and then it says "Operating System not found"06:13
crash1hdarchmage_, IDE = Integrated Drive Electronics06:13
tensorpuddingwhat it stands for isn't that important06:13
tensorpuddingwhat's important is the connectors they use06:14
tensorpuddingIDE drives have the old wide ribbon cables06:14
mtnman80crash1hd: that is what I got after setting the primary two devices in the boot order to the two IDE drives I just mentioned.  What the heck?06:14
crash1hdmtnman80, hmm not sure beyond that I would google what those are but it sounds like you lost your boot loader (You may have to go into live cd (if you can) and see if you can fix your mbr)06:15
NickMindsomeone msg me if your all good with syslog configuration.06:15
mtnman80crash1hd: what do you mean by "boat loader" ?06:15
lapionmtnman80, most ide controllers use scsi-emulation, and get /dev/sd designations06:16
crash1hdmtnman80, boot loader is what loads the OS06:16
mtnman80crash1hd: wait a second, now it's booting up just fine it seems.  So weird!  Let me log in, plug in the USB device I originally had in, properly remove it, restart, and then see if things are still working normally ...06:16
mtnman80lapion: can you explain that just a little bit more?  I would like to understand :)06:17
crash1hdin your bios you can set your boot order of devices06:17
crash1hdmtnman80, glad its working06:17
tinfuryI can't seem to get desktop cube to work on 11.04 with gnome classic. Can anyone help?06:17
tinfuryI have an NVidia 7400 but nothing seems to work. In the compiz config manager none of the settings seem to take06:18
mtnman80lapion: what is "scsi-emulation", I mean?06:18
mtnman80lapion: I understand the /dev/sd designations.  That was my problem ... and for some reason when I did not remove it properly ... it seemed like the boot order got all screwed up in BIOS ...06:19
sammyso I'm aware installing a .deb from a newer version is risky, and its better to use `apt-get -b source -t newdistname package` but I'd like to install a package from debian sid. should I light up the entire repository in my sources, or can I use apt-get to build the package from source using the downloaded files from, say, using dget?06:20
lapionide controllers on newer kernels use drivers that emulate scsi controllers so instead of ide0-master=/dev/hda ide1-master=/dev/hdc ide0-master=/dev/sda ide1-master=sdb ( that is if there are no slave drives06:20
mtnman80lapion: ok. the driver part I get.  what are "scsi controllers", though?06:20
mtnman80lapion: forgive me for still being a little ignorant with actual computer / OS components ...06:21
sonnoHey everyone. I've been having a lot of trouble with my pc lately and would like to quit bumming on my brother's. I downloaded damn small linux onto a flash drive and can't seem to figure out if I can get my WUSB54G to work with it. From what I've read, some say it's impossible, and others that I just need a driver.06:22
lapionscsi=smaal computer systems interface06:22
sonnoAnybody have a clue how I can find out or do something about it?06:22
mtnman80lapion: I see.  so let me see if I understand what you are saying.  so the system was reading the driver for my USB to emulate the scsi controllers on my system?06:23
sonnoWUSB54G being a linksys wireless adapter (in case someone knows about internet config, but not model numbers)06:23
mtnman80lapion: why the heck did the system automatically think it needed to boot from the USB ... after I improperly removed it?  that is so strange!06:24
Stingray88Hey guys, I had a SMB server configuration GUI for Ubuntu before, hard drive crashed and I installed ubuntu on a new drive... but I can't seem to find that SMB GUI, can anyone point me in the right direction?06:24
Flannelsonno: You should ask in #damnsmalllinux, which likely means you should really be using tinycore and asking in #tinycorelinux06:24
lapionmtnman80, that has nothing to do with ubuntu/linux you are mixing things up06:24
sonnoWell if you don't have an answer, you could help with the wording of the question.06:25
sonnoOr not reply.06:25
sonnoThat'd be okay too.06:25
mtnman80lapion: ok.  sorry for my misunderstanding.  you are talking about hardware, then?06:25
sonnoFlannel: Is tiny core a distro?06:25
Flannelsonno: this channel is for Ubuntu support, not general linux questions.  There's 1400 people in here, we can't just have random questions being asked, it would make this channel useless.06:25
Flannelsonno: yes.06:25
sonnoI've only ever messed with ubuntu for a very short while.06:25
sonnoI understand. Thanks for the advice.06:26
usr_1104hi all, anyone here use clonezilla before?06:26
lapionmtnman80, I was talking about hardware and how linux manages it, your problem is not linux/unix related but rather bios related06:26
sonnoI just remembered the ubuntu folks being knowledgable and friendly. Thanks again.06:26
mtnman80lapion: I see.  So it has to do with automatic configurations for my BIOS and how it operates in various situations ...06:27
Stingray88Does anyone know of a SMB server configuration GUI for Ubuntu?06:28
lapionmtnman80, if your system keeps on trying to boot of usb devices enter the bios and change the boot order, or disconnect all usb disks at boot06:28
mtnman80lapion: I just know to make sure to remove this "ext4-formatted" USB drive properly from now on so as to not run into anymore problems with it.  I think I'm actually going to reformat it to the file system that allows me to use it on both a Windows PC and in Linux ...06:28
Stingray88I had one before06:28
lapionmtnman80, that is unless you installed the ubuntu on a usb stick.06:29
lapionmtnman80, or maybe you setup grub to boot via usb06:29
mtnman80lapion: yeah, I've already reorderd the boot order ... and that took care of the startup problem.  If I tell the BIOS to disconnect all USB disks at boot ... will I still be able to use the flash drive after it boots up into Ubuntu?06:30
mtnman80how do I setup grub to boot via usb?06:30
mtnman80lapion: how do I setup grub to boot via USB?  I think this is a wise idea ...06:31
lapionmtnman80, I was just teling you in case you dud so..06:31
lapionI run my linux system of an external usb-hdd because the laptop has a defect internal sata controller06:32
Stingray88Does anyone know of an SMB server gui06:32
Stingray88I had one before and I can't find it now06:32
Ben64nautilus lets you browse network shares06:33
sammyStingray88: youre talking about a GUI to configure a samba server on your ubuntu box?06:33
Almightyis it possible to have a faulty library in a folder that's getting used instead of a good one in a folder like /lib/06:33
Stingray88sammy: correct06:33
mtnman80lapion: no but like ... do I put grub on my ext4-formatted USB ... as a backup?06:34
sammyStingray88: check out system-config-samba06:34
usr_1104anyone here can help on clonezilla for imaging ubuntu ext4 fs?06:34
Stingray88sammy: thanks will do06:34
usr_1104i have problem doing that to my hp elitebook 8450w06:34
atlanteanI configured samba on ubuntu and then I shared it with a vista pc.... later I revoked the share..... the vista pc upgraded to win 7.  Will the share need to be redone?06:34
sammyso I'm aware installing a .deb from a newer version is risky, and its better to use `apt-get -b source -t newdistname package` but I'd like to install a package from debian sid. should I light up the entire repository in my sources, or can I use apt-get to build the package from source using the downloaded files from, say, using dget?06:35
mtnman80lapion: I think you can save an image of the OS to an USB, if I am not mistaken ...06:35
Almightywhat's the variable for search paths for libraries etc?06:36
mtnman80lapion: or can't you back up your current system on a USB?06:36
atlanteanHello everyone06:36
Ben64sammy: the best thing to do would be to find an ubuntu repo for it06:36
sammyBen64: the ubuntu repo is 4 minor versons behind. the newest ppa is one. I'm happy to properly build it from the sid source files, there are very few patches installed and most have been applied over the last few minor versions. I'm just curious about people's experience with adding a debian repo and building from source that way, or if its easy enough to just grab the sources for a single package.06:38
Ben64source is pretty easy06:39
Ben64i build my own mplayer06:39
mtnman80lapion: anyway, thanks for your input :)06:39
sammyBen64: from the mplayer original sources, or from debian patched and tested sources, with proper control and init files etc etc06:39
sammyBen64: I'd rather not go the whole 'build a debian package from source' route since someone already has for this version.06:40
Ben64actually, mplayer2, their original source06:40
Ben64mplayer2 works much better for me06:40
sammyBen64: yeah, I considered that, but since sid already has a debian package for this version, Id rather just rebuild that against my copies of erlang, libc etc etc (since you shouldnt mix/match binarires from newer versions)06:41
Ben64that just seems like more work, imo06:41
sammyBen64: if I were to build the package from oneiric, its a single command :)06:42
sammyBen64: and if I were to add the sid repository to my sources.list, its also a single command06:42
sammyapt-get -b source -t oneiric packagename < will rebuild from the oneiric source package on my natty system, if it compiles correctly and all the dependencies are available06:43
u_1104skype always crash on my Ubuntu 11.04, any cure?06:45
zykotick9sammy, mixing repos with other distros (including debian) is a bad idea.  building mplayer from the original source makes a lot more sense to me.06:45

u_1104zykotick9, lol, okay....06:52
sammyzykotick9: why is it a bad idea if I am recompiling the package from its sources?07:03
YusukeHello, i tried to boot 11.04 beta1 in my pendrive . i used Universal USB Installer v1.7.9 ..but when i tried to boot it lags at "SYSLINUX 3.86 blablabla".07:03
sammyzykotick9: its already a debian package, so its dependencies are well marked and can be built from source if necessary as well. I'm well aware mixing binaries from newer versions is a bad idea, that is what I'm trying to avoid.07:03
sammyzykotick9: but someone has already gone through the trouble to make a debian package for this application, complete with working init scripts log rotation etc etc. there's no point in me using the developer's original, vanilla source package.07:04
YusukeHello, i tried to boot 11.04 beta1 in my pendrive . i used Universal USB Installer v1.7.9 ..but when i tried to boot it lags at "SYSLINUX 3.86 blablabla".07:06
zykotick9sammy, it's your computer - you should do what YOU want, not what some random guy (me) on the internet says.  good luck man.07:06
pookyI'm running thunderbird 7 under 11.04 ubuntu and I continuously get the error "failed to create drawable"07:08
pookyI tried to look online for a solution, but couldn't really get an answer relevant to just thunderbird07:09
pookyfirefox seems to work fine however, would anyone here have a suggestion?07:09
Yusukethanks pooky07:14
sammyzykotick9: I'm genuinely curious, I didn't mean to imply I thought you were wrong. I thought the issue with mixing binary versions was the libraries they were compiled against. I thought having apt-get build packages from source for you solved that issue.07:16
Yusukeyou are genuinely right sammy07:17
mtnman80can anyone help me with a startup problem on my IBM Thinkpad related to the BIOS settings.  I am running Ubuntu ...07:21
u_1104anyone here using HP EliteBook 8540w and have problem with the docking station?07:21
u_1104mtnman80, what exactly is your problem with ur startup?07:22
dc5alamtnman80, just try to describe your problem, then can see if someone is able to help07:22
zykotick9sammy, it's the mixing of libraries/package requirements - between two different distros (and thus two package standard systems) that I think is rather risky.  it will probably work!  but... you "could" be introducing a system wide problem by building and installing mplayer (and any package requirement) from a system that wasn't intended to be used with ubuntu.07:23
mtnman80u_1104: it seems like my BIOS keeps going back to default boot order settings, which sets the USB as the primary device for bootup (at the top of the order) ... even when I reset the primary device for booting to be the hard drive.  It's like the new BIOS settings don't stick ...07:26
AndroUser2u_1104 hi there..I am using the same laptop.07:27
mtnman80u_1104: it will boot up normally other times ... just fine ... right into Ubuntu.  But most other times it gives me this error of "PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable.  PXE-M0F: Exiting Broadcom PXE ROM.  Operating system not found"07:27
mtnman80u_1104: How do I permanently fix this?07:27
u_1104mtnman80, did you check to make sure you have actually save the settings?07:28
u_1104mtnman80, okay, do u have laptop_mode installed?07:28
mtnman80u_1104: I am running an IBM Thinkpad T43 business model.  And yes, it prompts me to save the new boot order setting in BIOS every time.  I do, but still get the same errors on a black screen upon startup ...07:29
sammyzykotick9: by two different package standard systems you mean... .deb packages and .deb packages? I see your point if youre talking about, say, gentoo and ubuntu, or arch and ubuntu, but debian and ubuntu? as long as apt doesn't complain about any dependencies, I'm not sure what system wide problem I could be introducing07:29
u_1104mtnman80, how old is your notebook?07:29
mtnman80u_1104: I don't know ... a T43 ... which is an older molder, I guess.  This all started taking place after I improperly removed an ext4-formatted USB drive (physically removed) it without "safely removing it" by right-clicking on it ... before shutting down one-time ...07:31
mtnman80u_1104: This particular USB drive has been giving me significant problems ...07:31
mtnman80u_1104: it seems like it screws up my system on occasion when I use it ...07:32
zykotick9sammy, i don't really want to debate this - do what you want :)  But a DEB for Debian is not the same as a DEB for Ubuntu.07:32
u_1104mtnman80, hmmm, this is really interesting. I have not seen such problem caused by pulling out USB drive that was not properly unmount07:33
u_1104mtnman80, my guess is that ur cmos battery is giving up itself...07:33
mtnman80u_1104: ???   what do you mean by that?07:34
mtnman80u_1104: maybe if I physically remove the laptop battery and put in back it in ... that has helped sometimes ...07:34
u_1104mtnman80, u were saying that u can't keep your bios settings....this usually is because ur cmos battery is not functioning anymore07:34
u_1104mtnman80, it could also be ur battery problem07:34
u_1104mtnman80, for some reasons, it can't hold the electricity while it's off07:35
amjadassalamu alaikum07:36
mtnman80u_1104: when you say "cmos battery", you are referring to the main battery, right?  Or something different?07:36
u_1104amjad: hi, u from muslim country?07:37
u_1104mtnman80, sorry, i meant the main battery.07:37
amjadu_1104:I am from india. and u?07:37
u_1104amjad, oh, okay, i am from singapore07:38
mtnman80I think it definitely has to do with an electricity flow or something.  But I don't really know if this is true, because I have problems with startup before after using this one USB drive ... that was originally improperly formatted for Linux ...07:38
u_1104mtnman80, best to check your battery first and work out from there...07:38
mtnman80u_1104: well, I physically removed and put my battery back into the laptop again ... and I got the same problem, so ...07:39
amjadi want internet part time job.. anyone can help me?07:40

u_1104mtnman80, yes08:02
mtnman80u_1104: ok.  doing so now.  I hope this fixes my problem ....08:02
auronandacemtnman80: then why did it output 2.6.31? did you upgrade from previous versions?08:02
mtnman80auronandace: no.  that is the version I am running.  it is outdated ... and I need to upgrade ...08:03
auronandacemtnman80: natty never shipped with 2.6.31, it shipped with 2.6.38, how did you get 2.6.31?08:04

ubottumtnman80: 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/EOLUpgrades08:04
mtnman80auronandace: so you are saying that won't be able to get an updated version of the kernel?08:05
DeichShafhi folks08:06
mtnman80auronandace: .... even though I need an updated version (2.6.38) to run things properly and without problems?08:06
auronandacemtnman80: it would be easier to install natty fresh08:06
mtnman80auronandace: so what is the point of having 11.04, then ... since it is no longer supported?  For this reason, you are saying it is better to run Natty Narwhal?08:07
auronandacemtnman80: you are not running 11.04!08:07
auronandace!karmic | mtnman8008:08
ubottumtnman80: Ubuntu 9.10 (Karmic Koala) was the eleventh release of Ubuntu. !End-Of-Life on April 29th 2011, see http://goo.gl/UUTAB for details.08:08
auronandace!natty | mtnman8008:08
ubottumtnman80: Ubuntu 11.04 (Natty Narwhal) is the current release of Ubuntu. Download http://releases.ubuntu.com/11.04/ - Release Info: http://www.ubuntu.com/getubuntu/releasenotes/110408:08
DeichShafi'm having a little trouble, getting 11.04 installed on my machine: after confirming installation prerequisites with "Next", the cursor changes to clock but there happens nothing else for over an hour. if i try the same image within virtual box everything wents fine and i can select a harddisk to assign in the next step. but i can't get to this step on my machine, if i try setup from cd.08:08
DeichShafis it possible that having a ssd built in may cause this?08:08
mtnman80auronandace: I am running the newest version, that is all I know.  So that would be Natty Narwhal.  Sorry for my mixup :)08:09
auronandacemtnman80: please stop it, you are lying08:09
mtnman80auronandace: not really :)08:09
auronandacemtnman80: you are running karmic which is no longer supported08:09
Ben64if you want to run a version without upgrading for a long time, use LTS. Last one was Lucid08:10
mtnman80auronandace: I know for a fact I am not running 9.10.  That has an orange background as default on the desktop.  That is not what I currently see.  I have a purple-white theme ...08:10
mtnman80auronandace: ... with maybe another color or two thrown in there ...08:11
puntjeam new to Linux/Ubuntu and wanted to know wether I should get an antivirus here as well. Is ClamAV a good alternative ?08:11
Ben64antivirus is not really needed08:11
auronandacemtnman80: themes are easy to change/install, you still haven't explained why you are running 2.6.3108:12
Ben64puntje: as long as you have good practices you should be safe. (Don't run things as root, or run unknown files/commands)08:12
DeichShafpuntje: i suggest to not use any av, exept for mails (in case you want to forward some mails, they might be cleaned before forwarding them)08:12
in0culahi, i have ATI 5470 and INTEL graphic card, how do i switch off ATI, my laptop overheat08:12
puntjealright, thank you08:13
mtnman80auronandace: maybe it's because I am running 9.10 off a live CD ... and so that is why it is pulling up that version when I run "uname -a" in Terminal ...  I am having problems booting into 11.04. I get these errors upons startup.  It's driving me batty.  I don't know how to remedy the problem ...08:13
oxoi cant install vida08:14
oxoim on 11.1008:14
auronandacemtnman80: then why didn't you mention that when somebody told you to run uname?08:15
auronandacemtnman80: can't you use the cd for 11.04 instead (as your livecd)08:15
mtnman80I don't know.  I was just following their guidance when told to run uname.  But since I can't boot into 11.04 ... I thought I could do it off a live CD.  I forgot that the results are "per version of the OS" ... so this is not going to work ...  I will try running my 11.04 CD.  Last time it didn't work.  I might need to burn the ISO again ...08:16

se7enhow can i share a folder so windows can access them?08:43
se7eni use samba to access files on the windows computer.08:45
se7endoes it work the other way as well08:45
DeichShaf_yes it does08:45
DeichShaf_but you will have to configure samba as server08:45
se7enoh that sounds not so easy08:45
DeichShaf_either automatically or manually by editing /etc/samba/smb.conf08:45
se7enDeichShaf_: automatically sounds good to me08:46
DeichShaf_i suggest to take a glance at the config-file08:46
DeichShaf_its easy to understand08:46
se7encan it only be done one way at the time?08:46

martin_PLhi, i'm booted to Ubuntu from SD card, how do i boot the regular HDD so i can access it?08:55
ikoniamartin_PL: you remove the SD card and reboot the machine.08:56
ikoniamartin_PL: the machine will then default to boot from the local hard disk08:56
martin_PLikonia, nono, i do not want to boot into the internal HDD - i want to access (read write) to the internal HDD right now from the ubuntu (on SD card)08:57
Wurstmenschleincan't anyone help me with my problem?08:57
ikoniamartin_PL: the disk should be auto mounted on your desktop08:57
ikoniamartin_PL: is there a file system on the internal hard disk ?08:57
mtnman80Hello.  I need to update my kernel from 2.6.31 to 2.6.38 in order to get my system to boot up and run Ubuntu properly in 11.04.  Can this be successfully accomplished via a live CD of 11.04?08:58
DeichShaf_wurstmenschlein: ich gehe mal davon aus, dass du deutsch lannst?08:58
DeichShaf_-l +k08:58
ikoniamtnman80: why do you need to update your kernel. What is the reason.08:58
oCean!de | DeichShaf_ Wurstmenschlein08:58
ubottuDeichShaf_ Wurstmenschlein: In den meisten Ubuntu-Kanälen wird nur Englisch gesprochen. Für deutschsprachige Hilfe besuche bitte #ubuntu-de, #kubuntu-de, #edubuntu-de oder #ubuntu-at. Einfach "/join #ubuntu-de" eingeben. Danke für Dein Verständnis!08:58
Wurstmenschleinja, sicher08:58
ikoniamartin_PL: it's also worth lookin in the /media file system to see if your internal hard disk has been auto mounted there08:58
martin_PLikonia, the internal HDD are not mounted after ubuntu startup, the internal HDD are ntfs drives (they are not visible on the desktop, nautilus, nor /mnt or /media)08:58
DeichShaf_ubottu: thanks for that hint, i was about to help wurstmenschlein a bit08:58
ubottuDeichShaf_: I am only a bot, please don't think I'm intelligent :)08:58
oCeanDeichShaf_: only in english here08:59
ikoniamartin_PL: have you tried to manually mount it ?08:59
martin_PLikonia, how do i do that? :)08:59
ikoniamartin_PL: could you please pastebin the output of the following command "sudo fdisk -l"08:59
mtnman80ikonia: I am having major problems with the involving the BIOS on my IBM Thinkpad.  Another one of the support staff thought that one of updating my kernel would help.  Basically, I used a USB thumb drive formatted in ext4 earlier this evening ... and since then ... my computer had problems starting up.  It's like reading the USB drives, detecting a problem, and then telling me the operating system cannot be found ... which is bullcra09:00
theadminikonia: May I wonder, why do people do "sudo fdisk -l" rather than "ls /dev/sd*"? That last one doesn't need root priveleges...09:00
ikoniamtnman80: I can't see a kernel change fixing a bios issue. What is the actual issue you are having09:01
ikoniatheadmin: because it shows the partition table and disk sizes so it's easier to work out what disk is what09:01
theadminikonia: Guess that does make sense :D09:02
mtnman80ikonia: this is even in lieu of switching my boot order in the BIOS to have the primary device be the hard drive instead of USB devices ...  For some reason, even time I use this particular USB flash drive ... and even remove it properly by right-clicking and choosing "safely remove" ... then shutting down ... it throws my computer into a tizzy when starting up.09:02
ikoniamtnman80: that's nothing to do with ubuntu, and therefore nothing to do with a kernel update.09:03
martin_PLikonia, i think it might be too long for the chat, it lists two devices: 1) internal HDD on dev/sda with sda1 sda2 sda3 sda4 sda5 partitions and 2) sdb with the ubuntu09:03
ikoniamartin_PL: that's why I asked you to use a pastebin09:03

mtnman80ikonia: I have an IBM Thinkpad.  I see.  Well, I need to burn the ISO for 11.04 again anyway, but the first one I burned wasn't working ...  How else would you recommend fixing the problem?09:04

damnoif I want to exclude some deamons from starting up @ the time of sys start, would sumply removing the corresponding shell scripts from /etc/init.d do the job?09:09
mtnman80ikonia: last time we had this problem ... we did something to edit the fstab ... I think ...09:09
theadmindamno: Use update-rc.d09:10
villerI have installed libsdl-dev but when I try to compile with gcc file.c -lSDL then gcc will complain SDL.h doesn't exist09:10
Farghnice answer idovecer ....09:10
mtnman80ikonia: would editing "fstab" help in this instance?09:10
damnotheadmin: after removing the shell scripts? the programs are still installed though09:11
Farghanyone has a smarter idea ?09:11
idovecerit is09:11
theadmindamno: No, just read that manpage. It's a system service management thing.09:11
damnotheadmin: ok. thanks09:11
martin_PLikonia, to mount the drive should i make a directory in /media (sudo mkdir /media/mount1) and then command: sudo mount /dev/sda2 /media/mount1  ?09:12
idovecerbtw, anyone know is there any tool with which you can improve boot up of Ubuntu09:12
llutzFargh: if your hdd cannot hide badblocks anymore, its broken. there's no software to prevent that, so you should replace the hdd09:12
idovecerI already know for bootchart09:12
mtnman80ikonia: would should /etc/fstab look like if Ubuntu is just booting normally from the hard drive?09:13
theadminmtnman80: Still depends on the partitioning scheme09:14
crash1hdIs it sad that its faster to format and install then it is too move partitions around09:14
mtnman80crash1hd: hey ... I'm still having this start up problem after all ...09:15
idovecerdamno: also you can try to use application Boot-Up Manager09:15

=== Marc is now known as Guest17665
crash1hdmtnman80, that sucks09:15
=== fork is now known as forkup
crash1hdmtnman80, it sounds like something in your bios is not right09:16
mtnman80crash1hd: any other ideas?09:16
crash1hdunfortunatly no09:16
ikoniamtnman80: they are not errors09:16
mtnman80crash1hd: I can't figure out how to disable the USB drives upon startup in there either ...09:16
crash1hdbut I dont think your issue is with the usb device09:16
ikoniamtnman80: that is netboot failing, which it should fail as you are not net booting09:16
mtnman80ikonia: netboot?  OK.  Then how do I get my system to recognize that I am not net booting?09:17
ikoniamtnman80: it's not a problem, it's just a warning.09:17
ikoniamtnman80: most systems will display that message (or wording to that effect)09:18
mtnman80crash1hd: that seems strange to me ... this is the second time I have had major startup problems after using this particular USB device.  There has to be correlation ...09:18
mtnman80ikonia: OK.  But startup doesn't go any further after these message display.  So what is going on?09:18
ikoniamtnman80: it will fall back to netboot if the your boot device is unavailable.09:19
ikoniamtnman80: which at that point, is nothing to do with ubuntu as your machine hasn't started to boot09:19
crash1hdI know that feeling its like if I stare at my machine when booting its fine but if I look away it locks up09:19
crash1hdjust make sure your hdd is set to the first thing to boot from in the boot priority09:19
mtnman80ikonia: ok.  so what "boot device" is it pointing to?  The first time this happened tonight, I went in to check the BIOS settings ... and sure enough the default was set to a USB device being primary.  I don't know the default got that way anyway.  I was booting off the hard drive without a problem earlier today ...09:21
martin_PLhi, how do i manually mount the NTFS internal HDD partitions in Ubuntu (Ubuntu is run from an SD card) - output of sudo fdisk -l is: http://paste.ubuntu.com/704363/09:21
mtnman80ikonia: i.e. what "boot device" is it saying is "unavailable" ?09:21
ikoniamtnman80: so either a.) the usb devvice has a problem b.) the notebook has an fault09:21
crash1hdI know with mine if the usb device is connected it will add it to the boot menu if it is not connected it will not show up09:22
ikoniamartin_PL: sudo mount -t ntfs /dev/sda2 /mnt09:22
theadminikonia: That'd be more like "sudo ntfs-3g /dev/sda2 /mnt"09:22
ikoniamartin_PL: that will mount it read only to see if the disk is accessable, from there we can move forward09:22
ikoniatheadmin: no, it wouldn't09:22
mtnman80ikonia: and it doesn't matter if I plug in the original USB device I was using ... again.  I get the same message.  I think it is related to the usb device ... because this is the second time I have had major system startup problems after using this device.  I did not "safely remove" it in the OS before shutting down the first time either ... and I think that is what created the problem ...09:23
theadminikonia: Well, the one you gave is read-only...09:23
ikoniatheadmin: correct, READ what I typed to him09:23
mtnman80ikonia: ... and then I physically removed it ... which I should not have done ...09:23
ikoniamtnman80: sounds like a hardware issue09:23
Ben64chkdsk and/or fsck?09:24
mtnman80ikonia: previously, with other USB devices ... even if I physically removed it prematurely ... I still didn't have the startup blow up on me.  But for some reason, this USB drive creates problems ... even though it is correctly formatted now in ext409:24
martin_PLikonia, ok, its mounted, when i open /mnt in nautilus i can see the partition contents09:25
mtnman80ikonia: so if it's a hardware issue ... what hardware is failing or dying ... would you say?09:25
ikoniamartin_PL: ok, so you know the disk is fine and can be mounted09:25
ikoniamtnman80: I have no idea.09:25
mtnman80ikonia: scis?09:25
ikoniamtnman80: what are you talking about scis ?09:26
ikoniamartin_PL: now if you unmount the disk with "sudo umount /mnt"09:26
ikoniamartin_PL: we can move onto the suggestion theadmin was saying to mount it read-write09:26
mtnman80ikonia:  someone else told me that my system may be using drivers to emulate the scis controllers ...09:26
ikoniamtnman80: that is not a problem. All disk devics are seen as scsi09:27
martin_PLikonia, ok, umounted :) and now should i go with: ntfs-3g /dev/sda2 /mnt  ?09:27
ikoniamartin_PL: did you see what theadmin wrote earlier ?09:28
murlidharcan anyone tell me how to open a video in 16:9 ratio by default in totem movie player?09:28
mtnman80ikonia: last time, I booted 9.10 on a live CD to check /etc/fstab.  Then I edited right on the black screen upon start up.  Would it hurt to try this again?09:28
ikoniamtnman80: yes, that would cause a problem, but it would not cause the problem you are having09:28
ikoniamtnman80: please listen to what I'm saying. Your machine is NOT starting to boot, so therefore ubuntu is not involved at this time09:29
ikoniamtnman80: therefore making changes to ubuntu will not fix/break anything09:29
martin_PLikonia, i think he suggested this command for read-wrtie purposes (on contrary to the one proposed by you for read only)09:30
ikoniamartin_PL: did you actually see what he posted though? as in the command09:30
mtnman80ikonia: I guess you are right.  Because last time I edited fstab directly via command line ... the startup went further to allow me to do so ...09:30
constrictorany xubuntu 11.10 users here?09:30
martin_PLikonia, ntfs-3g /dev/sda2 /mnt for read-write access to the ntfs drive09:30
oCeanconstrictor: Oneiric/11.10 is not yet released (still beta). Please join #ubuntu+1 for further support and discussion09:30
ikoniamartin_PL: give that a try09:31
theadminikonia: Oh thanks09:31
mtnman80ikonia: some hardware failure was triggered by the improper removal of this USB drive.  It would be nice to know what that is ...09:31
mtnman80ikonia: I don't really know if there is any way to tell that though, at this point ...09:32
Ben64have you run fsck on the partition09:32
mtnman80Ben64: how would I do that without being able to boot in?09:32
ikoniamtnman80: does it matter - it's failing.09:32
Ben64should be able to from livecd09:32
makaraHi. I'm trying to add degrees / minutes with the Ubuntu calculator. Where is the degree key?09:33
martin_PLikonia, the ntfs is mounted on /mnt, i opened it in nautilus and created an empty file there, is that ok?09:33
mtnman80Ben64: even the live CD of a previous version, right?09:33
mtnman80ikonia: you are referring to the hard drive, right?09:33
Ben64well, you said ext4, so it'd probably need to have ext4 support09:34
ikoniamartin_PL: sounds perfect. Well done09:34
theadminBen64: It's NTFS09:34
ikoniamtnman80: your hardware is not working, it doesn't matter why it broke, it's broke, nothing is going to change that.09:34
Ben64then chkdsk from windows cd :|09:34
martin_PLikonia, two last questions, how do i umount the drive after mounting it with ntfs-3g command? and can i mount it to some other folder than /mnt (for example a 'disk' folder in my desktop?09:35
GriGiHi, i got little question, are there any way to undo this: "gsettings set com.canonical.Unity.Panel systray-whitelist "['all']"? I don't want icons in unity panel anymore09:35
theadminmartin_PL: 1) "sudo umount /mnt", 2) "sudo ntfs-3g /dev/sda2 ~/Desktop/disk"09:35
ikoniamartin_PL: use umount or right click on it and use unmount, and you can mount it where you want09:35
mtnman80ikonia: so I just need to somehow get booted in one more time, save all my stuff, and be done with it ... right?09:36
ikoniamtnman80: if thats what you want to do, sure.09:36
mtnman80Ben64: can you clarify?09:36
theadminGriGi: Common sense tells me you should replace "all" with "none", but I'm not so sure09:36
GriGiYea, i tried this but it didn't worked09:36
GerowenQuestion, just installed Ubuntu 11.04 64bit, installed Adobe Flash Player from the software center, but Firefox isn't picking it up, suggestions?09:37
GerowenI even removed and re-installed it09:37
GriGiare there any GUI interface for Unity Panel configuration?09:37
Ben64mtnman80: if its formatted ext, check it with fsck in ubuntu livecd, if its ntfs, check it with chkdsk in windows install cd09:37
ActionParsnipGriGi: its configured in ccsm09:37
mtnman80ikonia: ... that's assuming I can get booted in again at some point.  I think I saved all the important stuff on the problematic USB (and perhaps another one).  Good thing I just bought a new laptop ... even though it's a Windows PC ... but oh well ...09:38
GriGiSo i need to install ccsm packet?09:38
mtnman80Ben64: I think I'm going to at least try that ... to hold on tight here a sec ...09:38
Ben64it might not work, but it can't hurt09:39
GriGiOkay, i find it, i need to leave empty space instead of 'all'09:40
ubuntu__hi all09:40
GriGiso im going to reboot, cya ;)09:40
ubuntu__hi all09:40
GriGiOkay, everything is working :).09:42
crash1hdhas anyone used the uefi ubuntu install?09:43
crash1hdCause I am having trouble getting ubuntu to boot properly after install09:44
meerkatswhen is 11.10 out?09:44
ActionParsnipGriGi: install compizconfig-settings-manager09:45
ActionParsnipmeerkats: ask in #ubuntu+1 please09:45
Arturcrash1hd: What problem?09:46
crash1hdit wont boot says that it cant find any os09:46
GriGiOkay, thanks ActionParsnip, that's what i was looking for :).09:46
crash1hdArtur, I have tried booting from the ubuntu boot choice and from hdd the only thing that works is the usb drive and the cd rom09:47
crash1hdArtur, see I installed ubuntu from USB uefi and then installed windows and somehow lost ubuntu so I reinstalled ubuntu and somehow lost windows09:48
Ben64crash1hd: windows always gets rid of grub, which is used to boot ubuntu09:48
crash1hdSo now i am trying to reinstall ubuntu ontop of itself with the USB CD uefi version hoping that it will recreate the connection09:48
Arturcrash1hd: can you boot into ubuntu?09:49
crash1hdArtur, from live cd yes09:49
Ben64when you're installing ubuntu, did you hit "erase entire disk" or something similar09:49
Arturcrackerjackz: follow these steps http://goo.gl/TKQqu09:49
Arturcrackerjackz: after boot into livecd09:50
Ben64that should work09:50
AmDAssalamu Alaikum09:53
mihagot this new android tablet.. samba share doesnt work on it.. neither do i know how to set up that... MTP thing09:53
mihaanyone has some experience? :)09:53
crash1hdI will give that a try after the install finishes if it doesnt work09:53
Arturmiha: do you have es file manager on android?09:54
Ben64android is beyond the scope of this channel, but yeah, check the market for apps that can access samba shares09:54
mtnman80Ben64: ok.  here's the plan.  for some reason, this time when I booted up, it did so normally into Ubuntu.  Strange.  This time I was running a living CD .... and it booted instead off the hard drive into 11.04 as normal.  My BIOS is currently set to boot primarily off the hard drive.09:54
mihaArtur: no?09:54
mihaArtur: built in 'Files' dont work09:54
Ben64ikonia: you around?09:55
oCeanmiha: how is that an ubuntu issue?09:55
Arturmiha:  you can acces files in smb share, but on android you must have app that have this funcion. I have es file manager (it was preinstalled on my device) and this work09:55
GerowenAny idea why flash wouldn't be working on an almost out-of-the-box Ubuntu 11.04 install, even though I've uninstalled and re-installed flashplugin-nonfree?09:56
mtnman80Ben64: ... so I am going to run fsck and see what the results are.  I will also try "sudo apt-get update" and then "sudo apt-get upgrade" to make sure I have the most up to date version of the kernel.  I am also going to check to see if all the files on the home match what is on my USB drives ... in case none of this works .... and what "ikonia" has said is true in that my hardware is failing .. which in that case ... my computer is D09:56
Ben64if it is failing, you should make backups asap09:56
mtnman80Ben64: i,.e. perform any necessary backups ... as you just stated ...;09:57
ArturGerowen: search for flash-aid in firefox extensions09:57
mihaoCean: well, i asked on #android as well .. sorry09:57
oCeanmiha: it's offtopic here09:57
ravengpodder 2.14 - how to disable single click menu on episodes?09:57
mihaoCean: are 'mtp tools' offtopic too?09:58
GerowenArtur: Just letting you know what I just found out, flashplugin-nonfree is installed, I did an updatedb, then did "locate libflash", the libflashplayer.so file that is normally in /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins isn't there, even though the package is installed.09:58
Ben64miha: this channel is for ubuntu only09:58
oCeanmiha: this is only ubuntu09:58
mihaoh well09:59
ArturGerowen: in my case flash-aid helped with flash issues09:59
Ben64flash doesn't come out of the box because it is non-free09:59
head_victimadriana is spamming onjoin10:00
oCeanhead_victim: you can report such issues in #ubuntu-ops10:01
mtnman80Ben64: ok.  the result of "fsck" was that /dev/sdb1 was mounted.  It tells me that if I continue with the disc check, I will cause severe system damage. Should I proceed anyway ... or will I really cause severe system damage?10:01
GerowenArtur: flash-aid did it, that's a sexy little addon, thanks!10:01
Ben64mtnman80: you should not fsck a mounted filesystem, thats asking for trouble10:02
mtnman80Ben64: or do I need to run a command in terminal to unmount /dev/sbd1.  Isn't that referring to the USB flash drive?10:02
Ben64aren't you booting off of it? if so you cannot unmount10:02
mtnman80Ben64: No, I am not booting off it currently.  It booted straight off the hard drive this time.  So /dev/sdb1 refers to the hard drive?  I am confused.  Isn't there a command that you can run to check "what is what", I thought?10:03
theadminTo fsck the root filesystem, you may do "sudo touch /forcefsck ; sudo reboot"10:04
theadminBen64: ^10:04
Ben64mtnman80: if you do "mount" on the command line, you will see where everything is mounted10:04
theadminmtnman80: sudo fdisk -l may give some hints10:04
Ben64theadmin: i think he's having trouble booting though10:04
Ben64might not make it back10:04
mtnman80OK.  let me try these few things.  hold on a sec ...10:04
head_victimoCean & LjL cheers10:06
mtnman80Ben64: ran "sudo fdisk -l" as "theadmin" instructed.  /dev/sdb1 is indeed the main Linus OS.  /dev/sdb2 shows as the "extended" system.  /dev/sdb5 shows as the Linux swap / Solaris.10:06
lokhi all; i use ubuntu 11.04; earlier in my app tab there was a recently used app tab which has disappeared; hw cn i get it back?10:07
mtnman80Ben64: where should "/dev/sbd1" be mounted?  I just ran "mount", so I can tell you what it says ...10:09
Ben64where does it say it is10:09
mtnman80Ben64: it says it is on "/type ext4".  I don't really know what that means, but ...10:10
Andy80hi all10:10
Andy80it's just me that I'm blind or there are not any differences in these 4 options http://www.ubuntu.com/community/countdown O_o ?10:10
mtnman80Ben64: so like ... is my OS mounted incorrectly.  Is that the whole problem?  Or is it still something else?10:10
Ben64mtnman80: "on / type ext4" means its the main linux partition10:11
Ben64not a problem at all10:11
AterI'm trying to install ubuntu 10.04.3 TO usb memory stick, but installer won't recognize it. Any ideas?10:11
theadminAndy80: Apparently so.10:11
mtnman80Ben64:  yeah.  so no problem there.  should I still run fsck on it, then ... or not?  We need to check the disk.  I should probably take the instructions given by "theadmin" to do fsck on the root filesystem ...10:12
Andy80Ater: what application are you using to put Ubuntu on the USB memory?10:12
ravengpodder 2.14 - how to disable single click menu on episodes?10:12
Ben64mtnman80: i'm still confused, is it booting off the "bad" disk? or the external usb one? is there an internal one at all?10:12
theadminmtnman80: Does it all work? If so, don't bother fscking around10:13
mtnman80Ben64: it's booting off the hard drive, which apparently is what "ikonia" said was failing ...10:13
mtnman80Ben64: it's booting off "IDE HDD0", which is the hard drive ... right?10:14
AterAndy80: I used universal USB installer to get ubuntu 10.04.3 to boot from USB memory stick. It's working so far, but I'm trying to install that on another memory stick and can't get that to recognize10:14
Ben64i don't know how your system is set up10:14
mtnman80Ben64: that is what is set as #1 currently in the boot order in BIOS ...10:14
Andy80Ater: how is the memory formatted? what kind of filesystem?10:15
crash1hdOK I think I have it right this time :) lets hope first 20MB dedicated to uefi then 40gb ntfs (for windows7) then 250 mb for /boot then 8GB for swap and the remaining for / :)10:15
setientsounds good crash1hd for the most part10:16
setienthow big is the drive10:16
setienti would have more like 200 gb for windows710:16
setientyou can read and write ntfs from linux10:17
crash1hdsetient, whats annoying is that after installing and rebooting it doesnt boot10:17
setientbut it is much harder to read/write ext3/ext4 from linux10:17
crash1hdyeah I know its a dedicated ubuntu media box10:17
crash1hdwith 8TB attached as ext410:17
crash1hdonly adding windows 7 to play around with10:17
AterAndy80: fat3210:17
crash1hdthe occasional game10:17
Andy80Ater: it's ok...10:17
mtnman80theadmin: it all works this time, but I am afraid that once restart ... I am going to get the same warning messages again after the IBM splash page upon system startup: "sudo touch /forcefsck ; sudo reboot"10:17
mtnman80theadmin: that is why I think we should do the fsck on the root filesystem.  what do you think?10:18
crash1hdsetient, the annoying part is sofar uptill now and this is like install #4 after installing and rebooting the uefi doesnt boot right10:18
Andy80Ater: are you using "Startup Disk Creator", the application that ship with Ubuntu, or another app? I don't have this clear....10:18
setientcrash1hd: i have never had to play with uefi for the most part10:18
setientwhich is good10:18
theadminmtnman80: If the hard drive is failing that won't help anyone10:18
AterAndy80: Universal USB creator from Pendrivelinux10:19
theadminmtnman80: And if it actually boots, this is not the problem10:19
crash1hdbut this is the first time I have done custom partitioning instead of letting ubuntu choose where it places /boot inside /10:19
Andy80Ater: try using the one I just suggested then10:19
crash1hdnot that it should matter since its just a pointer to /boot anyhow10:19
crash1hdin fstab10:19
AterOK, thanks Andy80. I'll do that10:19
theadmincrash1hd: You should leave at least 100MB for /boot, imo10:19
theadmincrash1hd: Just saying10:19
Andy80Ater: you're welcome :)10:20
crash1hdtheadmin, I set it to 250mb10:20
theadmincrash1hd: Will do well.10:20
crash1hdtheadmin, the 20mb is for the efi10:20
crash1hdwhich has to be at the front of the drive from what I can tell10:20
theadmincrash1hd: I'm not sure how the EFI works -- does it need a separate partition?10:20
mtnman80theadmin: right.  if the system is booting.  then the hard drive is not failing.  It has to be something to do with this particular USB drive that screws up my system startup ... which did so again this time ... given that I did not "safely remove" it before shutting down the system this time ... and then I physically removed it ... which I should not have done ...10:20
setientcrash1hd: what does it do10:20
crash1hdtheadmin, it seems to need to be at the very front of the drive10:20
theadminmtnman80: Um, if you shut down, all the plugged in devices will be unmounted ("safely removed", if you wish)10:21
crash1hdsetient, its a pointer to /boot for the bios to the best of my knowledge10:21
=== Sietse|MMS_ is now known as Sietse|MMS
crash1hdsetient, the first time I installed ubuntu from usb efi it created a boot choice in the bios called ubuntu10:21
mtnman80theadmin: ok.  I believe you.  it is just such a coincidence that I have a major system startup problem right after using this USB drive ... for the second time in a row ...10:21
crash1hdand there doesnt seem to be anyway around it10:22
=== psycho_oreos is now known as hatake_kakashi
crash1hdwhich is why I am now on install number 410:22
theadminmtnman80: Could be something with the drive indeed, but then you need to run fsck on the USB drive, not on the hard drive...10:22
crash1hdshouldnt have messed with the first one10:22
mtnman80theadmin: ok.  I will run fsck on the USB drive then ... just a sec ... and then I will let you know the results ...10:22
setienti have no idea crash1hd10:23
crash1hdI think its new10:24
tux-matthey all10:24
mtnman80theadmin: how do I specify that I want the system to run fsck solely on this USB drive that is now mounted?  What specific command do I enter?10:25
mtnman80theadmin: ... in Terminal?10:25
theadminmtnman80: You need to unmount the drive...10:25
theadminmtnman80: And I have no idea how it's named10:25

mtnman80theadmin: how do I find out the name of this drive ... and then unmount it (versus safely remove it)?  What commands do I run?10:27
mtnman80theadmin: then what specific command do I run to fsck it?10:28
mtnman80theadmin: ... once I know the name of it?10:28
theadminmtnman80: mount|grep "the current mountpoint of the drive" ; sudo umount "drive name you found" ; sudo fsck "drive name you found"10:29
=== pepito_ is now known as pepito
mtnman80theadmin: I ran "sudo blkid".  I remember now, it is "/dev/sda1" for this thumb drive.  I will now run the other two commands you gave ... and get back to you in a minute ...10:31
crash1hdok so the uefi partition has to be first no matter what10:31
germain1 hi all. I switched my laptop to Ubunutu 10.04 and my CPU is clocking @ 100% all the time. Anybody has any clue? Thanks10:32
mtnman80theadmin: how do you get that bar symbol inbetween "mount" and "grep", though?  what do you type?10:33
theadminmtnman80: It's right above the Enter key on a standard US QWERTY keyboard...10:33
crash1hdand from what I have read you have to install ubuntu first before windows with uefi10:34

ActionParsnipwk: there is a pulseaudio equalizer (3rd party app)10:39
wkActionParsnip: This happens with any equalizer I use, I tried 2 different mediaplayers.10:39

amierHello everybody, I'm newbie and I'm trying., :D10:40
oratedtheadmin: and then cat file.img.bz2{g..v}. And lastly, cat file.img.bz2x1 file.img.bz2x2 > file.img.bz2?10:41

theadminorated: Try it... Might work. I don't have a machine to test on.10:41

mtnman80theadmin: when I try running "sudo fsck /dev/sdb1", I get the following message returned -- "sudo: can't open /var/lib/sudo/[my system alias]/0: read-only file system"10:42

oratedtheadmin: for loop?10:42
mtnman80theadmin: no ... /dev/sdb1 refers to the USB drive you told me to fsck ...10:42
mtnman80theadmin: are you talking about the root filesystem of the thumb drive?10:43
theadminorated: http://www.cyberciti.biz/faq/bash-loop-over-file/10:43
theadminmtnman80: No, I'm talking about your OS's root filesystem.10:44
mtnman80theadmin: if so, I don't know.  can we change that?  it's weird though, because I can copy and paste stuff to it just fine ...  my OS's root filesystem is not read only ....10:44
mtnman80I was just performing fsck on the USB thumb drive just now ....10:45

justanotherlamejrib i found in google an article about how to do it :) thanks tho10:53
theadminmtnman80: Well, or ask someone else. I'm out of ideas10:54
mtnman80theadmin: what would be the best boot order to have setup in BIOS?  I've already got the hard drive set as primary, though.  Perhaps that is where the problem still lies?  We've isolated that it's not a hardware issue.  But we cannot perform a disk check on the USB drive ...10:55
histomtnman80: the permissions on the thumb drive are set at mount10:56
theadminmtnman80: It's something with your /var, and I have no idea what.10:56

llutzHerbert426: Deutscher Support in #ubuntu-de bitte. Danke schoen.10:58
mtnman80histo: thank you for taking a stab at it ...10:58
Herbert426ohhh sorry10:59
mtnman80histo: let me basically state the nature of the problem ...10:59
theadminHerbert426: Ubuntu *is* a good starting point10:59
histomtnman80: yes pls10:59
theadminOh, (s)he left10:59
mtnman80histo:  I used this crazy USB drive once today earlier in the evening.  I did not properly do "safely remove" before shutting down the system.  I then physically removed the USB drive after the system shut down without it "safely removed" via the OS.  "theadmin" said this should not have been the problem, as they are automatically unmounted upon shut down anyway ...11:00
auronandacemtnman80: she is right, it would have unmounted on shutdown11:02
mtnman80histo: well ... then when I get home ... I start getting these warning messages on the black screen after the initial IBM startup / splash screen -- "PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable; PXE-M0F: Exiting Broadcom PXE ROM; Operating system not found"11:05
llutzmtnman80: setup your machine NOT to boot using PXE11:06
theadminmtnman80: PXE? Disable that in your BIOS...11:06
theadminmtnman80: Unless you *do* want the network boot capability11:06
mtnman80histo: something like this has not happened in a while when using my Linux system ... and so it seems to have something to do with the use of this USB drive ...11:06
mtnman80theadmin:  what does the "network boot" capability allow you to do?  And where would I disable PXE in the BIOS?11:07
theadminmtnman80: I have no idea what your BIOS is like.11:07
theadminmtnman80: And network boot allows you to boot, well, from network11:07
mtnman80theadmin: so regarding the network connection ... this whole thing could have something to do with the fact that I was hard-wired for Internet use ... until using wireless again tonight?  Or not?11:08
auronandacemtnman80: you are trying to boot from pxe, if you want to boot from your harddrive disable pxe11:09

mtnman80theadmin: ok.  you are all right.  that is probably the main issue.  I just don't understand how the system reverted to that setting ... but anyway ... let me work on it.  I'll let you know if I can find this setting in the BIOS ...11:10
mtnman80theadmin: I need to quickly double-check my backed up files on the USB drives with the system contents ... so that if this thing doesn't boot up again ... at least I have my stuff.  Then I can work with the BIOS again here ...11:11
oratedWhat is the difference between 7zip and 7z? Which one to use for highest compression?11:12
mtnman80theadmin: never mind ... it won't come back from hibernation mode ... so I had to hard start anyway ...11:13
TheLastProjectorated, .7z is the file format and p7zip is a command line Linux version of the popular 7zip program for Windows.11:14
oratedTheLastProject: I got 200GB tib file which I which to compress down to some 100GB or probably even less than that. Can you guide me on that?11:18
TheLastProjectErrr..., well, I myself use PeaZip, choose 7z as compression format and use Extreme compression, but I'm not sure if you would make that, it would probably still be way large =/11:19
theadminorated: Maybe just splitting the file into several ones will do? Sometimes it would, so that's why I ask11:19
oratedTheLastProject: i see -mx=9 flag in man for 7z11:19
oratedtheadmin: I wish I had space for splitting11:20

TheLastProjectSorry, I haven't use p7zip myself so I don't know anything about the flags =/11:20
theadminorated: 50% compression still sounds a bit too good11:20
seemawnis ubuntu one worth to trust in?>11:21
seemawni mean is this encrypted or something?11:21
rdzhi all. In earlier linux days one was able to do: 'cat somefile > /dev/dsp' . how can something like this be accomplished in ubuntu 11.04?11:21
Promilleseemawn: specify. what is encrypted?11:22
theadminrdz: padsp cat somefile > /dev/dsp11:22
rdztheadmin, aah.. many thanks11:22
soreautheadmin: Does it work like that?11:23
llutzseemawn: would you generally trust some international companies storing your data somewhere out there?11:23
theadminsoreau: I think it should.11:23
soreautheadmin: padsp ls /dev/dsp gives no such file/dir11:23
theadminsoreau: Oh, I see.11:23
theadminSorry, rdz, my bad.11:23
soreautheadmin: I don't know what voodoo padsp uses but it's not very straightforward ;)11:25

soreauD_Russ: What is performing poorly?11:31
hellofoojust trying to mess with and learn xorg, gdm stuffs. so i hit ctrl + alt + f2 and then sudo service start gdm , and that says "Job is already running: gdm" - but i dont understand where? what should be the expected result?11:32
theadminhellofoo: It's already running at tty7, I suppose, as usual.11:32
soreauhellofoo: try restart11:32
soreauinstead of start11:33
hellofooyeh at tty711:33
D_Russits not performing poorly but there are times when my descktop changes. if i mess with screenlets too often my theme changes. on 11.04 soreau11:33
soreauhellofoo: Or what are you trying to do ultimately?11:33
hellofoosoreau: umm ,that would restart the tty7 one ?11:33
soreauhellofoo: yes11:33
hellofoosoreau: well, nothing but just learn things.11:33
hellofooso how to i start one at tty8 ?11:33
hellofootty8 is blank screen11:33
hellofoowhere you cant type anything11:34
D_Russi am sure that i have a lot of things on compiz checked off that i will never use and or might be causing some conflicts with other programs11:34
soreauhellofoo: start only starts a service if it's not running. Restart stops then restarts it and stop stops it11:34
soreauhellofoo: restart should work if it's running or not11:34
hellofooits running on tty711:35
hellofoocan i run another one on tty8 ?11:35
hellofooi am a newbie trying to learn :)11:35
soreauD_Russ: I don't see how screenlets changing your theme has anything to do with performance11:35
soreauhellofoo: You can run multiple X sessions, yes but I'm not sure about gdm..11:36
D_Russwell l ets forget the whole performance thing11:36
hellofoosoreau: how do i run multiple X sessions ?11:36
D_Russi am trying to eliminate all options on compiz that i dont need active11:36
D_Russto minimize possible conflicts with other applications11:36
auronandace!ccsm | D_Russ11:37
ubottuD_Russ: To enable advanced customization of desktop effects in Ubuntu: install 'compizconfig-settings-manager' or 'simple-ccsm'. If you install the latter, a new option will appear in your appearance properties - See also !compiz - Help in #compiz11:37
soreauhellofoo: For example, you can start another X session on tty8 with DISPLAY :1.0 using this command: /usr/bin/X :1.0 -br -audit 0 -nolisten tcp vt811:37
hellofoobtw, i did sudo service kdm start and it started it, how can i access/use it ?11:37
hellofooctrl alt f8 is still blank11:37
D_Russauronandace, i have ccsm open just not sure which settings are vital11:37
soreauD_Russ: compiz plugins shouldn't conflict with other apps..11:37
D_Russyour right it shouldnt11:38
soreauD_Russ: It's a compositing window manager that manages windows while providing effects11:38
=== Toby is now known as Guest60703
lackvoidWhats the default hard drive spin down time in Ubuntu?11:38
soreauD_Russ: The 'vital' ones are probably Window Decoration, Move Window, Resize Window, Place Window and maybe a Switcher.. also Opengl and Composite11:39
mtnman80theadmin: I'm back.  So I found out how to disable the PXE.  I don't get those messages anymore upon start up on the black screen.  I still get the "Operating System not found" ... and it goes no further than that for startup ...11:39
mtnman80theadmin: so maybe the hard drive is shot ...11:39
theadminmtnman80: I'd guess so...11:39
auronandacemtnman80: and what is the boot order in the bios?11:39
hellofoosoreau: btw, i did sudo service kdm start and it started it, how can i access/use it ? ctrl alt f8 is still empty blank screen where i can type nothjing11:40
D_Russbut i see strange things heappening on my PC sometimes. like for instance sometimes i can close firefox and still see images of it on my desktops background black section11:40
soreauhellofoo: I'm not familiar with kde or kdm11:40
BlackBishopanyone knows a server ( and client for linux ) that could allow me to share a soundcard on the server ?11:40
mtnman80auronandace: let me tell you exactly ... just a sec ...11:40
hellofootheadmin: do you know ?11:40
auronandaceD_Russ: do you use flash?11:40
DustyMonkBlackBishop: type /j #ubuntu-offtopic11:40
theadminhellofoo: It's ctrl+alt+f711:41
theadminhellofoo: not f811:41
jribBlackBishop: pulseaudio is such a thing11:41
D_Russi ahve a flash plugin for firefox11:41
soreauBlackBinary: Try asking in ##linux11:41
hellofootheadmin: i.e. still my gnome sessions11:41
auronandaceD_Russ: that is likely a bug in flash, do you use nvidia too?11:41
ikoniamtnman80: I've told you the problem approx 40 minutes ago11:41
soreauBlackBinary: but I think pulseaudio can do it, try there too #pulseaudio11:41
hellofookdm should run a kde session i guess11:41
ikoniamtnman80: why are you still refusing to accept this11:41
theadminhellofoo: If you started KDM without stopping GDM some mess may occur11:41
D_Russihave an nvidia graphics card11:41
auronandaceD_Russ: i had the same problem ages ago11:41
BlackBishopjrib: interesting, didn't even think about it11:42
D_Russno solutions?11:42
hellofootheadmin: hmm, i just wanted to try out things11:42
auronandaceD_Russ: it solved itself after flash and nvidia updated, not sure if it was flash or nvidia but it wasn't compiz11:42
D_Russi see11:42
mtnman80ikonia: I have a feeling something just still messed up with the BIOS ... because it has still booted successfully a couple of times ...11:42
hellofootheadmin: so anyway to see the started KDM somewhere ? or shall i just kill the process :|11:43
D_Russthat sucks11:43
ikoniamtnman80: carry on wasting your time then. Good luck11:43
bhush1089Hello friends How do i start ubuntu after first installation On first reboot I got blank screen What am i doing wrong pls tell me....??11:43
D_Russloging out and back in usually cures it11:43
D_Russfor a bit anyway11:44
auronandaceikonia: i'm glad it isn't just me, i thought he was not listening11:44
soreaubhush1089: Possible graphics driver issue.. did the live session work ok?11:44
mtnman80ikonia: I'm almost at the point of saying "forget it" and "give it the death sentence" ...11:44
bhush1089no... :(11:44
soreaubhush1089: How did you install it?11:44
bhush1089From CD..!11:45
soreaubhush1089: What graphics card do you have?11:45
soreaubhush1089: I'm not really understanding how you installed it from CD if it didn't work ok..11:45
bhush1089Installation goes OK without no errors but I am getting blank screen on first boot11:46
soreaubhush1089: Does it work if you boot with nomodeset?11:46
GirlyGirlbhush1089: Try booting in recovery mode11:46
mtnman80auronandace: here is the current boot priority order -- "IDE HDD0, IDE HDD1, ATAPI CDO: ..., Legacy Floppy Drives, USB FDD, -USB HDD, USB CD:, PCI LAN" ... in that order ...11:47
bhush1089GirlyGirl : Not working11:47
soreau! nomodeset | bhush108911:47
ubottubhush1089: A common kernel (boot)parameter is nomodeset, which is needed for some graphic cards that otherwise boot into a black screen or show corrupted splash screen. See http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1613132 on how to use this parameter11:47
auronandacemtnman80: and what are you trying to boot?11:47
theadminHey GirlyGirl :)11:47
bhush1089Tried but not working...!!!11:47
soreaubhush1089: nomodeset didn't work either?11:48
mtnman80auronandace: everything thing else has been reverted back to default except that PXE setting.  I am trying to boot from the hard drive ...11:48
soreaubhush1089: Did you check the md5sum of the image you downloaded and burned to disk?11:48
auronandacemtnman80: and you have a harddrive in there yes?11:48
mtnman80auronandace: yes11:48
auronandacemtnman80: what is on the harddrive?11:49
soreaubhush1089: recovery mode is not the same as booting with nomodeset..11:49
llutzmtnman80: go get a live-cd with software for hdd-checks, perform some checks on your hdds from it before you keep wasting your (and others) time here11:49
bhush1089I also tried recovery mode but only thing i get is blank screen11:49
soreaubhush1089: What model card is it?11:49
mtnman80auronandace: I think I've already backed up all the important stuff.  Pictures, documents, etc ...11:50
auronandacemtnman80: is there an operating system (windows or ubuntu) on the harddrive?11:50
mtnman80llutz: will the 9.10 live CD work for this?11:51
bhush1089ATI Mobility Radeon HD 425011:51
mtnman80auronandace: yes, 11.04 is on the hard drive11:51
BlackBishopany way I can control de output sound .. and sound levels from the cli ( no X11/Xorg )11:51
llutzmtnman80: nope, there are cd holding special software made by HDD-manufacturerers for that11:51
theadminBlackBishop: Try "alsamixer"11:52
auronandacemtnman80: what llutz suggests is a good idea11:52
BlackBishopthanks :)11:52
mtnman80llutz: is that something you can find online and burn to a CD ... or do you have to go buy it?  fsck run from the 9.10 live CD won't do it?11:52
bhush1089soreau : ???11:52
soreaubhush1089: Try 11.10 when it's released11:53
auronandacemtnman80: fsck just checks filesystems, you need to check the harddrive itself11:53
soreaubhush1089: Make sure to burn on lowest speed and use the built-in cd checker utility11:53
bhush1089:D LOLz Ubuntu is my life...!!! Pls Help me...!!!11:53

nelson8874i need educational programs for a 8 years old kid. specially about the digestive system12:04
rdzxgt001, what makes you assume that your avi file is simple? try -vo vdpau12:05
rdzxgt001, and depending on what codec your avi file has, you can shift some decoding workload to your GPU wit hsome codec specific switch12:06
xgt001rdz, i thought the fan noise was due to gpu getting loaded?12:06
dee-deeThanks guys. Its fun!12:06
rdzxgt001, -vo vdpau -vc ffh264vdpau  for h264 encoded files12:07
mtnman80llutz: all right ... that pretty sums it up then.  I have the tools I need to open it up and figure it out then.  I have that website bookmarked.  If that software doesn't work so as to somehow get a resolution ... the recovery disks do not work first ... then I will just called this one "cooked" ...12:07
xgt001rdz, and i tried checking out my gpu load during video playback using aticonfig --odgc it shows 40-50 percent load12:07
rdzxgt001, more likely it is the cpu fan.. but i don't know realy.. you need to test12:07
rdzxgt001, oops.. i think the vdpau stuff is only available for nvidia cards..12:07

GirlyGirlsoreau: Using compiz on kde is not a good idea12:52
no||shutdownsoreau - will look up compiz12:52
mtnman80_auronandace: maybe it has nothing to do with it ... but all I know is that I am successfully logged in again ... with no input output errors being given any point of the process.  Actually, now that I think of it ... these I/O errors were referring to /dev/sda1 ... which is the hard drive ... and referring to certain sectors of them.  Another time ... it tells me it can't read superblocks or something ...12:52
arch_adamsoreau, server12:52
soreauGirlyGirl: Please, do explain why exactly.12:52
no||shutdownGirlyGirl - kubuntu then?12:52
eypalsupport for things related to selling Ubuntu based computers seem to be hard to get :).12:52
no||shutdowndon't confuse me further :S12:52
soreauno||shutdown: kde support will tell you compiz is not supported on kde but the fact of the matter is, it works fine in kde12:53
mtnman80_auronandace: but for now I am logged in.  So I'm not going to touch anything or do anything drastic ... backup my stuff ... and hope that I can still solve the problem ...12:53
auronandacemtnman80_: if you want help you will need to follow instructions and answer the questions that are asked of you; if you don't it makes it significantly harder to help you12:53
GirlyGirlsoreau: It does not integrate well on KDE4 and hinders some integration .. that is just how it is12:53
no||shutdownsoreau - i'd prefer not to make changes to my installation, simply get to the bottom of the congfig issues i have with Kwin12:53
soreauGirlyGirl: Elaborate on what integration you're referring to, specifically12:54
no||shutdownsimple commands like RandR will do the job12:54
mtnman80_auronandace: to answer your question directly, I thought having the USB plugged in would prevent any errors or warning messages from holding up the startup process ....12:54
GirlyGirlsoreau: We are not doing a kwin vs compiz12:54
no||shutdowni just need to know how to save those config settings so i don't have to redo this shizz everytime i log12:54
auronandacemtnman80_: why would you think that?12:54
GirlyGirlno||shutdown: Users in #kubuntu are more experienced with kde than in here12:55
soreauGirlyGirl: You are the one that initially said running compiz on kde is a <quote>Bad Idea[TM]</quote>.12:55
soreauGirlyGirl: I want to know why you think that exactly12:55
auronandacemtnman80_: it would just be recognised as another device to be mounted12:55
GirlyGirlsoreau: So if someone comes here saying unity crashed I should tell them use kde?12:55
no||shutdownGirlyGirl - i'll ask around there :)12:55
auronandacemtnman80_: it doesn't affect the boot process12:55
soreauGirlyGirl: No, I want to know why you think running compiz on kde is a bad idea exactly12:56
mtnman80_auronandace: because it seemed to have triggered the problem in the first place, as the last time I had problems with startup -- it was directly related to the use of it.  I do believe what you are saying though ...12:56
theadminsoreau: Because Compiz is intended to be used with GNOME12:56
theadminsoreau: Well, yes, it runs just fine on KDE, indeed12:56
soreautheadmin: Oh quite to the contrary, compiz does not even need a DE to run12:56
jawadcan someone help me ? i got weird problem12:56
theadminsoreau: I know about Compiz Standalone, yeah, weird thing12:56
soreautheadmin: Compiz only requires an X session with graphics drivers supporting TFP12:56
GirlyGirlsoreau: If you update kde there is a chance you will have problems with new kde version + old compiz ... besides only kwin can correctly handle desktop effects on plasma properly12:56
soreautheadmin: It can run on lxde, kde, xfce, gnome or standalone12:57
mtnman80_auronandace: but when I removed the battery, waited a few seconds, and then put it back in and started up (more than once) ... it went all the way to login and allowed me to successfully login.  No warning messages at all ...12:57
jawadi uninstall ubunto and then install it , then all my files and permetion for files changed , how can i get it back , even that i want to run some files and put the tick as excutable file , it instantly unchik it12:57
soreauCompiz cares not what DE is running12:57
jawadi uninstall wine " instead of ubuntu"12:57
soreauor, if none is running at all12:57
auronandacemtnman80_: and what does that have to do with the usb stick being plugged in at boot?12:57
theadminsoreau: Tried Compiz with XFCE, ended up yucky12:58
hramrachwhere do I report mirror issues?12:58
soreautheadmin: That's because you did it wrong.12:58
soreau'Yucky' certainly sounds like pebcak indeed12:58
GirlyGirlsoreau: Things like you press the launch and find the start menu off screen happens as kwin interoperates with plasma ... sure it compiz will do the wm job of placing a window fram but plasma malfunctions12:58
mongytheadmin: you need emerald when using compiz on xfce, if you want a nice window manager12:58
mtnman80_auronandace: I dunno.,  It could be an electrical issue of some sort ... affecting both the hard drive and the USB port.  Maybe it's just shorting out or something.  I had a similar issue with the battery when I first acquired the thing in used condition ...12:58
theadminmongy: Oh.12:59
auronandacemtnman80_: sounds like you have some sort of hardware issue...12:59
soreauGirlyGirl: Why would you run old compiz and new kde? compiz is constantly being updated to keep up with kde protocol12:59
GirlyGirlsoreau: not on the same day so no13:00
mtnman80_auronandace: I think I would still narrow it down to that ... if even if the hard drive checks out fine (which it still might).  And it seems like conditions are presenting themselves in a manner that could be interpreted as another problem ...  So better backup my stuff and be ready to have to ditch the thing ...13:00
BluesKajHiyas all13:00
auronandacemtnman80_: that would be the safest thing to do; what system is it? laptop/desktop?13:01

touchpadI have 11.04 on a persistant usb key. (created with usb-creator from the install/live CD iso) How do I make it boot / shutdown faster? Can I select once and for all the langage setting and "try ubuntu without installing" at boot and get rid of those screens to get a direct boot?13:51
sgs2_usrauronandace, you are wrong, when i dual boot to windows 7, it works perfectly fine13:51
sgs2_usrauronandace, so how do you explain that???13:51
m_bissonauronandace: that shouldn't affect anything. Its the same as plugging in a VGA cable13:51
sgs2_usrauronandace, are you going to say that i should stick with windows 7? :D13:51
auronandacem_bisson: i see, as you can see i don't use docks13:52
aGamingDaddyGirlyGirl: I did a check disk (and there were errors)  but it stops13:52
GirlyGirlaGamingDaddy: How old is the hard drive?13:52
BlueProtomanShould I retry with the official installer?13:52
auronandacesgs2_usr: i don't know, use what you feel comfortable with13:52
GirlyGirlaGamingDaddy: Also if you use the recovery mode method the check is less unlikely to stop13:53
aGamingDaddyGirlyGirl: The harddrive is a usb-stick, the other WinDrive is new13:53

xgt001sgs2_usr, noticably snappier, bit improved hardware support, but worst on laptops14:19
GirlyGirlaGamingDaddy: Pendrives have a limited read/write times so they are used for storing data ... running an operating system that is constantly accessing the disk is the fastest way to kill it ... you should use an external hard drive14:19

sgs2_usrlately my Ubuntu 11.04 keep crashing when I fire up Efax-gtk application, why is that?14:25
xgt001Mike-Wazoski, i guess u just remove the newer python14:26
Mike-Wazoskixgt001: well how can I remove the python 2.7 who I actually installed yesterday manually?14:26
xgt001Mike-Wazoski, how about dpkg-reconfigure python...14:26
xgt001Mike-Wazoski, did u install python 2.7 manually14:27
Mike-WazoskiI compiled it manually, yesterday14:27
Mike-Wazoskinow I see that the printing doesn't work because of an error of python 2.714:28
Mike-Wazoskibut I solved launching the process with python2.614:28
Mike-Wazoskibut if I type the command python in the shell it launches the python 2.7 instead of 2.614:29
Mike-Wazoski(is a little bit complicated to explain >.<)14:29

Mike-Wazoskixgt001: I just wanna put the 2.6 as default on my ubuntu 10.0414:30
xgt001Mike-Wazoski, it resets the package defaults so incase python 2.7 overwrote 2.6 it MAY reset back to 2.614:31

sgs2_usrBlueWolf, what are you trying to achieve here? get ipod to work on ubuntu?14:59
BlueWolfhramrach: I do have Itunes - But I don't use Internet on Windows. It's only for my games and Ipod14:59

hramrachsgs2_usr airtonix no, iTunes don't run on Ubuntu. And last time I heard you can access new iPods with iTunes only15:01
BlueWolfairtonix: What do I do now to get it to show??15:01
sgs2_usrBlueWolf, okay. can't you use Banshee for your ipod? :D15:01
babbleiTunes doesn't prevent access to anything; if you used older versions of Windows Media Player on Windows, WMP would 'helpfully' drm your unprotected tracks into WMA for you.15:01
imprintI have visitor survey everytime I go on firefox, how do I get rid of it, it wont close tab?15:01
hramrachthere may be a way to switch to using non-Itunes but it's not as straightforward as formatting the iPod15:01
babbleiTunes will convert unprotected WMA into unprotected AAC on Windows, but it doesn't lock you out of using those AAC tracks in a different player (VLC, or something else)15:01
sgs2_usri remember seeing somewhere in Banshee there is a plugin that can talk to iphone or ipod...15:02
airtonixBlueWolf: hramrach: there are at least 6 versions of the 5th gen ipod. and not all can have rockbox installed on it... but if you can then that is a good option since then you can buy your music from amazon drm free15:02

sgs2_usrbabble, btw, which version of banshee? 2.2?15:05
action09hi alli try to install 10.04 alternate from usb key and i've got at the begginning steps the message indficating that installer can't detect any cdrom (i'm installing from usb.) if i try to re-try , same.. any clue please15:05
babblelet me check15:05
oCeanBlueWolf: there are many. Try paste.ubuntu.com15:05
babblesgs2_usr: I currently have Banshee 2.2.0 installed.15:05
babblelet me check the iOS version on my iPod.15:06
sgs2_usrbabble, right....okay.15:06
sgs2_usrbabble, i don't use any APPLE products...so im safe on my Ubuntu :D15:07
babblesgs2_usr: I'm using iOS 4.3.5 on my iPod.15:07
hramrachBlueWolf: a nano this new can be probably used with iTunes only15:07

sgs2_usrbabble, i only use SAMSUNG GALAXY S2 as my mp3 player and it talks to my Ubuntu flawlessly :D15:07
babblesgs2_usr: how's the battery life on the S2?15:08
hramrachBlueWolf: or you will have to find some howto with detailed steps how to format it. It needs some data on the drive which you can't remove15:08
sgs2_usrbabble, very good...right now im on 2.3.4 XXKG615:08
BlueWolfOk, so what is the out come, how do I fix it????15:08
babblesgs2_usr: The Galaxy line is neat enough, but I really really don't want another phone. hehe15:09

babblesgs2_usr: hmm. I can go a few DAYS using my iPod as a media player15:09
oCeanBlueWolf: it does recognize the ipod15:10
babblesgs2_usr: no, no, you misunderstand me. I like BOTH platforms (iOS *and* Android)15:10
sgs2_usrbabble, well iPod is only act media player, smartphone needs more juice15:10
hramrachBlueWolf: you need to ask some Apple fans, it's Apple hardware and very specific and dincompatible with anything non-Apple15:10

sgs2_usrbabble, ah, okay.... :D15:10

iktbut very unlikely for 11.1015:12
babblehramrach: no, not a lookalike. a phoneless android handheld with ~30gb of storage and an upgrade path to honeycomb, preferably15:12

hramrachbabble: did you look at the Asus Terminator or what is that thing with removable keyboard?15:12
BlueWolfoCean: Ok im in Offtopic15:12
MokilokIt's meant to be 5 hours of use time, 6 cell battery. I haven't tested it yet.15:12

kennydudeikt: Right, so how could I raise attention to it?15:14
BlueWolfoCean: All I did was right click the mount on the desktop and click format. So you don't have any other suggestions?15:15

oCeanBlueWolf: nope, no more clues15:15
mtnman80does anyone know how to disable the "extent" feature bit on an ext4 thumb drive in Windows ... so that Windows can read the thumb drive via a special program called "Ext2Fsd".  Or does this disabling have to be done in Linux?15:16
BlueWolfoCean: GREAT!!! Then how will I get it to work? |-)15:16
BlueWolfoCean: How do I get it to mount in windows 7 so I can format it there?15:16
codemagiciankennydude, i saw that article and it doesn't work15:16
kennydudeikt: Well, I was just looking to see if someone else had fixed it, but the bug is quite old now as other distros seem to ignore this.15:16
codemagiciankennydude, there is no command line tool called mount_afp15:16
hramrachbabble: it's called Transformer, actually15:16
oCeanBlueWolf: you cannot see it in Windows either, so ask in ##apple what you should do. It's not an ubuntu topic.15:17

hramrachBlueProtoman: how long does the blank screen stay?15:20
kennydudeconn: Try pressing keys or something. Could be a screensaver? (I don't know much about VNC)15:21

oCeanBlueWolf: sure15:22
auronandacemtnman80: what do you mean by linux won't run efficiently enough?15:22
mtnman80auronandace: After you login, it freezes at some point and start shows squares and such for the text in the windows.  The hard drive is obviously shot ...15:23
auronandacemtnman80: have you tried a livecd (that wouldn't use the harddrive it stays in ram)15:23
BlueProtomanhramrach: Yes.  Still nothing.15:24

hramrachBlueProtoman: do you have caps lock led on your keyboard? Does pressing chasnge it? How long does disk keep working after it shuts down the screen? did you try an external screen?15:25
mtnman80auronandace: that's actually a good thought.  Didn't think of that.  I can't access anything in the home directory (i.e. on the hard drive), though ... right?  That means I couldn't get to any of my pictures ...15:25
BlueProtomanNo Caps Lock, pressing keys does nothing, I don't know how I can tell, and no I have not but I don't see how that would be the issue.15:25
hramrachBlueProtoman: then numlock15:26
mtnman80auronandace: unless there is a way to do that.  And I would have to run the live CD for 9.10 ... as that is the latest one on a CD that actually works ...15:26
auronandacemtnman80: you can mount the harddrive from a livecd15:26
BlueProtomanWell, I mean I have the keys, but they're not active.15:26
connDoes anyone use VNC viewer to connect to Ubunut?15:26
mtnman80auronandace: OK.  Is it a pretty simple command?15:27
hramrachBlueProtoman: there might be a disk led on the usb drive15:27
auronandacemtnman80: yes15:27
BlueProtomanThere is.  It flashes for a bit, then just glows flatly.15:27
hramrachBlueProtoman: then ubuntu is probably incompatible with your hardware. You can try different version15:27
mtnman80auronandace: I guess it would simply be "sudo mount /dev/sda1", right?15:27
Arturconn: describe your problem15:27

BlueProtomanJust once.15:29
mtnman80auronandace: man, you have been the greatest help out of anyone here throughout this whole ordeal ... but not like others haven't tried ...  how do I know how to specify the mount point?15:29
BlueProtomanAnd by "blank" I mean "black"; the screen itself is still on.15:29
auronandacemtnman80: first boot the livecd then talk to me15:29
kennydudecodemagician: I'd try: "// /media/timecapsule smbfs password=<myp> 0 0"15:30
kennydudecodemagician: Just don't kill me if that doesn't work15:30
hramrachBlueProtoman: then graphics driver probably crashes the machine. Should not happen in the "safe" mode but whatever15:30
BlueProtomanhramrach: What should I do, then?15:31
mtnman80auronandace: ok, I'll boot up the live CD.  Then we can format the USB drive (the new storage location for the pictures I want to save off the hard drive) off the live CD too ...15:31
codemagiciankennydude, my fstab seems to have UUID=.... hex code.... /storage/diskname ext4    defaults,errors=remount-ro  0   215:31
auronandacemtnman80: ok15:31
hramrachBlueProtoman: still it might be some other driver that happens to load at the time but since Ubuntu helpfully turns off the screen you never know15:31
kennydudecodemagician: Add it on a new line at the end15:31
hramrachBlueProtoman: try other version/distro15:31
codemagiciankennydude, im not sure what those UUIDs are15:31

kennydudemtnman80: Using Disk Utility format it as FAT15:33
auronandacemtnman80: yes15:33
mtnman80kennydude: good call.  That is simple enough.15:34
hramrachrypervenche: Ubuntu blanks the screen because be defualt he boot loader passes some stuff like: quit splash vt.handoff=715:34
auronandacemtnman80: if none of the files you need to save are bigger than 4gb then we'll use fat3215:34
hramrachbut the safe mode should not do that so I guess there is another issue15:34
mtnman80auronandace: on the splash screen for the live CD, which option do I choose ... "Try Ubuntu without any change to your computer" ???15:35
auronandacemtnman80: yes15:35
mtnman80auronandace: wait a second ... we can do a "check disc for defects" off of here ... should I try that first?15:35
auronandacemtnman80: that will take a while, don't bother15:36
auronandacemtnman80: you know the disk works so it should be ok15:36
mtnman80auronandace: will that possibly fix the problem with my hard drive, though?  No ... I thought my hard disk is shot ...15:36
codemagiciankennydude, how do I tell mount to run the /etc/fstab without rebooting?15:37
auronandacemtnman80: no, it means check the cd for detects (not the harddrive)15:37

mtnman80auronandace: scan it once it's mounted, I mean?15:38
kennydudecodemagician: No problem15:38
auronandacemtnman80: that was suggested earlier to you but you decided not to (and i don't know why)15:38
mtnman80auronandace: I don't think you can scan a mounted drive, though can you ... I think that was the question.  It gave a warning saying that you might cause serious damage to your system.  Let's just proceed to backup my data ... and then maybe we can try that ...15:39
auronandacemtnman80: ok, lets back up the data first15:40
mtnman80auronandace: so I select "boot from first hard disk" or "Try Ubuntu without any change to your computer" on the spalsh screen?15:40

ironhalikHello, how can I find out, which kernel module corresponds to a device in lsusb?15:59
=== copec is now known as maccam94
oCeantucemiux_: anywhere you like, say /tmp15:59
butcherbirdandantino: if you go to about:plugins  in Firefox addressbar it shows flash?15:59
mtnman80auronandace: that's all the /dev .... 's" we got ...15:59
tucemiux_oCean,  ok, ill try it, thanks !!!!!!!!!!!!15:59
ironhalikor otherwise, how can I disable particular, internal USB device from loading15:59
sid_auronandace, i installed it using but it's still refusing to let me use it15:59
GameBoyguys please help.. need something urgent...  any one know xchat room for web related questions?15:59
auronandacemtnman80: ok, try: sudo fdisk -l15:59
purplefoolmy hard drive is recognized by ubunut but i cannot get it to mount.  any help would be appreciated!15:59
mtnman80auronandace: no result.  It just moves to a new command prompt ...16:00
andantinoi dont see adobe flash just flash16:01
andantinoi wonder if it has something to do with the new firefox16:01
mtnman80auronandace: I know the name of the hard drive (/dev/sda1) ... if that matters ...16:01
auronandacemtnman80: ah, good16:01
tucemiux_oCean, no valid OPenPGP data found o.O16:01
GameBoy@andantino.. is it working in chrominum?16:02
mtnman80auronandace: but it's not showing in any of these screens, of course ...16:02
andantinoill have to dl chromium16:02
andantinoi just installed ubuntu16:02
auronandacemtnman80: next we make a mountpoint: sudo mkdir /mnt/whateveryouwanttocallit16:02
andantinobrand new laptop here gameboy16:02
oCeantucemiux_: in that case the key is probably not downloaded / saved properly. What ppa are we talking about?16:02
GameBoyandantino: oh i see.. could you see that in the ubuntu software central? try removing and adding again.. i remember facing this issue once16:03
andantinowill do gameboy16:03
sid_GameBoy, i've tried the same several times. doesn't seem to work.16:03
andantinoit installs automatically now16:03
sid_what's the best browser for ubuntu? or rather the most hassle free?16:03
andantinoso perhaps i have to reinstall with the new release to firefox16:03
MichaelFindlayFirefox comes built in :)16:04
auronandacesid_: chromium works well for me16:04
MichaelFindlaybut I use chrome16:04
GameBoysid_: i used to use firefox.. but now chromium16:04
GameBoysid_: coz in windows also i use chrome so...16:04
mtnman80auronandace: I entered in sudo mkdir mnt/dev/sda1 ... and it spits back tellin gme that it cannot creat the directory ... 'mnt/dev/sda1': No such file or directory ...16:04
andantinochromium is speedy16:04
GameBoysid_: love chrome16:04
tucemiux_oCean, deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/synce/ubuntu your_ubuntu_version main16:04
cgrozamtnman80: you forgot the root "/"16:04
auronandacemtnman80: thats because /mnt/dev/ doesn't exist: 1 directory at a time16:04
lordjjandantino, chrome/chromium are definetely fastest16:05
andantinosafari is nice on windows16:05
mtnman80cgroza: ??? it goes where in that phrase, then?16:05
auronandacemtnman80: also what cgroza said: you need the / at the beginning16:05
andantinoi think its a bit faster than chrome16:05
escottmtnman80, mkdir -p will create parent directories as needed16:05
lordjjandantino, the built-in firefox 3.6 is low on resource use, but chrome/chromium are much faster16:05
cgrozamtnman80: shouldn't it be "/mnt/......" ?16:05
auronandacemtnman80: sudo mkdir /mnt/blahblah16:06
GameBoylordjj: will chromium do an auto update everytime?16:06
cgrozamtnman80: without the "/" at the begginig it will create a mnt relative to your current directory.16:06
GameBoyandantino: dont browse much of the html5 sites hence no Safari :)16:07
mtnman80auronandace: ok.  entered in "sudo mkdir /mnt/dev".  It must have worked, because it just went to the next command prompt?16:07
lordjjGameBoy, no, almost nothing autoupdates, but if you add the ppa, u it can automatically detect when updates are available n u can easily install through synaptic package manager16:07
oCeantucemiux_: so the easiest way would be:   sudo add-apt-repository ppa:synce/ppa16:07
auronandacemtnman80,: good, now do: cd /mnt/dev/16:07
GameBoylordjj: thanks.. a manual intervention everytime.. haah16:07
andantinoim still having shaky mouse pointer probs here :(16:08
auronandacemtnman80: then do: sudo mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/dev16:08
GameBoylordjj: could you please throw some light on ppa16:08
lordjjGameBoy, you get to choose, instead of it choosing for you ;)16:08
tucemiux_oCean, thanks!  If I read the link you gave me earlier it will show me how im supposed to find the name of the ppa to use for other ppa's??? "synce/ppa"??16:08
lordjjGameBoy, well, a ppa, or a Repository is a source for downloadable software packages16:09
oCeantucemiux_: actually, if you read here https://launchpad.net/~synce/+archive/ppa you can follow the instructions16:09
GameBoylordjj: software centre?? rite?16:09
alex-Is moonlight as evil as silverlight when it goes to privacy?16:09
oCeantucemiux_: you can browse/search ppa's at https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+ppas16:09
oCeantucemiux_: ^including how to install16:09
tucemiux_oCean,  I just needed help adding the PPA16:09
tucemiux_oCean, thanks for the link!16:10
GameBoyalex: i know i am not giving you the right answer.. i believe the end of mooonlight/silverlight has begun! So no worries :)16:10
lordjjGameBoy, the software centre only shows you software that can be downloaded from the ppa's that are already in your source list. You can see ur ppa's by going: System> Administration >Software Sources16:10
mtnman80auronandace: got it.  when I enter in "sudo mount /dev/sda1" after entering "cd /mnt/dev .... it tells me "mount: can't find /dev/sda1 in /etc/fstab or /etc/mtab"16:10
alex-GameBoy: what do you mean?16:10
tucemiux_I dont have "Software Sources" on my distro, im using ubuntu studio o.O16:10
auronandacemtnman80: and you are sure that is your linux install on the harddisk?16:10
alex-tucemiux_: you have16:10
alex-tucemiux_: update manager > settings > software sources16:11
lordjjGameBoy, try this: gedit /etc/apt/sources.list16:11
lordjjGameBoy, open a terminal and type that in16:11
mtnman80auronandace: I thought you said it would work using a live CD.  I said previous that I only have one for 9.10 that works ...16:11
Sidewinder1Snot really a problem but I was wondering, why, occasionally when I mount external esata/usb hard drives (through Places-->Mount 1TB Filesystem) two instances of Nautilus opens with the associated directory structures. It only happens about 30% of the time and seems to be totally random. (10.04 i386 desktop)16:11
alainghi I installed coldfusion and the default admin pages were placed in /var/www. I have moved out the folder and stuck it into /opt/ in my apache2 config I included this config file http://pastebin.com/Gw33ABy7 but when it go to the admin pages i get 403 errors16:11
lordjjGameBoy, make that: sudo /etc/apt/sources.list16:11
GameBoyalex: i mean silverlight/moonlight will be replaced by html5 soon.. microsoft itself is using html5 instead of silverlight..16:11
sid_auronandace, GameBoy i somehow liked firefox more for how it displayed content but had to start using chrome because it was so much faster16:11
mtnman80auronandace: so I need the live CD for 11.04?16:11
tucemiux_alex-,  ahhh there it is!  They hid it very well, thanks !16:12
auronandacemtnman80: it should have worked if the partition exists16:12
alex-GameBoy: i know, but i need it for watching a movie forschool16:12
alex-for school *16:12
sid_any reason why i should upgrade to 11.10 next week?16:12
lordjjGameBoy, blah, I meant: sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list    :P16:12
auronandacemtnman80: launch gparted16:12
mtnman80auronandace: so there has to be a partition on the hard drive for 9.10 and one for 11.04?16:12
GameBoylordjj: :-)16:12
andantinohmmmm flash not working with chromium either16:13
auronandacemtnman80: no, just your 11.04  (you are running 9.10 from livecd)16:13
Sidewinder1lordjj, WADR, it should be "gksudo gedit." :D16:13
mtnman80auronandace: I am pretty darn sure Natty is on the hard drive, so ...16:13
lordjjSidewinder1, difference?16:13
GameBoylordjj: i sources.list is empty16:13
auronandacemtnman80: can you launch gparted16:14
lordjjGameBoy, that can't be right, it must have opened a new document coz it ddnt find it16:14
mtnman80auronandace: how would I run this from terminal if it is inherently exists with 9.10?16:14
Sidewinder1lordjj, Again, with respect, have a look here: http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/graphicalsudo16:14
auronandacemtnman80: gksudo gparted16:14
=== Lemon`BRB is now known as SideSW1PE
GameBoylordjj: my bad... typed the name wrongly!16:15
sid_GameBoy, chromium won't run flash either16:15
GameBoylordjj: what next.. opened sources.list16:15
Sidewinder1lordjj, As an aside, if one wants to really mess up the program use sudo with FF...16:15
mtnman80auronandace: I have it up ... and it already tells me that there are no devices detected.  How do we get it to detect the hard drive?16:15
donavan01anyone know if I can use a standard PCI wifi card on a powermac G5 if I were to run ubuntu as the OS?16:16
lordjjGameBoy, well in here you can see where all your software downloads come from16:16
lordjjGameBoy, if you want to add another source you can it it here16:16
auronandacemtnman80: that is a big problem, you definitely have some sort of hardware issue if you are sure the harddrive is in and it isn't being detected16:16
lordjjGameBoy, if you want I can give you the chrome and chromium ppas to add in there16:17
GameBoylordjj: yes please...16:17
mtnman80auronandace: even from a live CD of 9.10 ... even though 11.04 is on the hard disk?16:17
Sidewinder1lordjj, I'm not sure why anyone would ever want to open FF with root privileges; just sounds like a bad idea, to me.16:17
auronandacemtnman80: yes, it should detect it16:17
lordjjSidewinder1, I never said that. And yeah it does sound bad.16:18
GameBoysid_: could you try a reinstall... i still have  faced that issue.. but dont remember what i did next.. i think i did a reinstall16:18
lordjjGameBoy, one sec...16:18
GameBoylordjj: sure...16:18
delinquentmeumm how is it that you launch a program from a terminal ... but allow the terminal to be killed w/o shitting down the program?16:18
mtnman80auronandace: ok.  I still really appreciate your efforts here.  What would you suggest next?16:18
DJones!screen | delinquentme16:18
ubottudelinquentme: screen is a window manager for terminal sessions, also useful over SSH. The 'byobu' package provides very useful additional utilities. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Screen16:18
auronandacemtnman80: you said it was a t43? maybe the harddrive is dying or the motherboard has something wrong with it16:18
delinquentmeDJones, I thought it was a tag added to the command within the command line though16:19
mtnman80auronandace: it's gotta be one of the two.  I might just have to take it on somewhere I have them look at it ... and at least get my data off of there ...16:19
oololaooi try to move launcher on the down side of screen which is on the left side. I tryied to change it in compizconfig and nothing change.What can be wrong?16:19
DJonesdelinquentme: I thinm there is, I'm just used to using screen16:19
auronandacemtnman80: the next thing i would try is putting the harddrive in another thinkpad, see if it detects it16:19
mtnman80auronandace: or maybe they have a way of accessing an ext4 drive in Windows ..16:20
mtnman80auronandace: I don't really have another Thinkpad available.  Just the one ...16:20
ubuntu__A chuj wie.16:20
oololaoono co ty16:20
delinquentmeDJones, apprently a "Launcher" works just as well .. thanks !16:20
auronandacemtnman80: i wouldn't use windows to access the ext partition16:20
ubuntu__wciepujecie na Windows?16:21
andantinohmmm got flash working16:21
GameBoyDo we have ubunAmp??LOL just like winamp.... just curious.. always loved winamp. Missing it on windows.16:21
GameBoyandantino: how??16:21
auronandacemtnman80: do you have an external harddrive caddy (you could put the harddrive in that)16:21
os1rishow to I tell if my install is 64bit or 32bit16:21
blackstarI have issues using vpnc gnome plugin can anyone help me ?16:22
andantinowhay worked for me was downloading the apt version of flash from the adobe upgrade page16:22
lordjjGameBoy, for Chromium, open a terminal and type: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:chromium-daily16:22
GameBoyandantino: i tried that but didnt work.. then i installed from ubuntu software center i believe. anyway... happy right... :)16:22
andantinonow i still wonder if i can make my mouse pointer less shaky. its not actually that bad, very minimal movement, but if i can make it better i will16:23
mtnman80auronandace: so if it is not a good idea to access an ext thumb drive in windows, I have no Internet capabilities on my Linux box to upload anything to online storage, and I don't have an external hard drive ... I guess I could dry getting back into 11.04 the regular way again ... and putting all my pictures onto the 16GB thumb drive ... all the system files on the other thumb drive ... or burn at least everything besides the pictures16:23
andantinoi tried using gpointing settings but that made it worse16:23
GameBoylordjj: done... what next?? i couldnt find an entry in sources.list16:24
lordjjGameBoy, try opening synaptic package manager and looking for chromium16:24
andantinoive noticed that certain touchpads which have the shaky problem on ubuntu work fine with fedora16:24
mtnman80auronandace: if I were to purchase another thumb drive, it needs to be a FAT32 drive for it to be read in both Windows and Ubuntu?16:24
os1risCan anyone assit me on how to tell if i am running a x64 bit or x32 bit ubuntu install.  Uname -a give me something i am not sure about..16:24
edbianos1ris: What's it say?16:25
auronandacemtnman80: i hope you find a way to get the data you need off it; at least this experience has taught you the value of backing up your data (you likely won't make that mistake again)16:25
mtnman80auronandace: no doubt :)16:25
auronandacemtnman80: yeah, fat3216:25

os1risyea right.. So what do I go off of16:27

os1risits a laptop but it appears to have too16:27

os1risSo what do you think they are both 32bit or u think i am running x64bit os?16:28
edbianos1ris: cat /proc/cpuinfo16:28
edbianos1ris: I think it's all 32 bit16:29
os1risCan i PM you with it .. so idont spam?16:29
edbianos1ris: sure16:29
edbianos1ris: or use this: paste.ubuntu.com16:29
lordjjGameBoy, it looks like just a plugin so install chrome then click on the link in the article to install the plugin16:29
* edbian wishes everyone was as cautious about spam as os1ris is16:29
* auronandace agrees16:30
lordjjGameBoy, are you able to install Chromium now?16:30

DustyMonk_GameBoy: i didn't follow, what's the prob? i use chromium16:31

frebHi! I have about 400 folders with about 300 files in each folder. I want to copy all the .jpgs in those folders and subfolders (I know there are about 1100 of them) to a new location. Any ideas as to how that can be accomplished?16:32
lordjjGameBoy, alright then so just visit this link inside chromium: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/gbchcmhmhahfdphkhkmpfmihenigjmpp to add the plugin you wanted. A plugin I'd recommend for chromium/chrome is Adblock16:33

iwaka_Hello everyone! Just installed Ubuntu and I have a question regarding drive partitioning (I couldn't find an answer in the manuals either). Is partitioning really necessary? I deleted Windows and have only Ubuntu on an unpartitioned drive, is it necessary for me to partition the drive? Is it too late?16:52
ubuntu__Sidewinder1, dive is about a year old and been using it for work (papers and charts) and for some games16:52
alaingwhile I'm trying to find neo-runtime.xml16:52
alaingI'm not sure what directory its located in. i need to find it and edit it16:53
DustyMonkiwaka_: yes, linux installation is based on partitioning16:53
ubuntu__Sidewinder1, using a self-test now to see what the prob is16:53
iwaka_DustyMonk, so what would partitioning give me in comparison with an unpartitioned install? And can I partition the drive now, after I installed Ubuntu?16:54
lordjjalaing, then use "/" as directory if its in the ubuntu filesystem, or the path of another partition/hardisk16:54
DustyMonkiwaka_: during install, you will be asked to partition16:54
lordjjalaing, you can just drag a folder into the terminal to have its path there16:54
ubuntu__Sidewinder1, says "disk has a few bad sectors"...must be in boot area.  how would i correct that?16:54
Sidewinder1ubuntu__, With random I/O errors it sounds like impending failure; time to back-up and then replace or hope for the best. Earlier I was checking out new int. HDs at Newegg, they are relatively inexpensive. I just wish I had some extra "scratch", lyin' around; never hurts to have an extrs drive around.16:55

iwaka_DustyMonk: I didn't partition the drive during the installation, should I reinstall the whole system from scratch, or can I repartition after having completed the installation?16:56
DustyMonkiwaka_: you cannot install without partitioning16:56
iwaka_eerrr... I just did, apparently. Unless i'm missing something...16:56

Guest32791hi all16:59
Guest32791anyone here?16:59
lordjjGuest32791, there are about 1533 people here17:00
SideSW1PEabout xD17:00
SideSW1PE- 3 bots = 153017:00
Sidewinder1ubuntu__, The filesystem usually takes care of that automatically and segregates those 'bad sectors'. Personally my current drive has had the same bad sectors for many months; as long as they don't start increasing, I guess it's OK, but one can never be absolutely certain.17:00
SideSW1PEenough that you dont need to ask :D17:00
iwaka_DustyMonk: http://paste.ubuntu.com/704527/17:01
ubuntu__Sidewinder1, guess my real question is why can i not boot the drive now?17:01
afiefis there some ISO I can download that contains multiple DEs? I want my friend to be able  to switch between Gnome, Unity and KDE before commiting to one17:01
Guest32791hi all may i ask a question? i have a problem17:02
lordjjafief, you can manually download kubuntu-desktop, and xubuntu-desktop in ubuntu all u'll be able to use whichever u want17:02
afieflordjj: I meant from a life CD17:03
afiefor live dvd17:03
Sidewinder1ubuntu__, Besides, chk out the cost of new internals, they are not that expensive; in terms of why it's not booting, I can't really answer that, sorry. :-(17:03
lordjjGuest32791, just go for it :)17:03
DustyMonkiwaka_: i see no /home, no root and no swap, so it is not installed17:03
ubuntu__Sidewinder1, ok, thx for your help...got me into some other ideas.17:03
DustyMonkiwaka_: did you use wubi?17:04
Sidewinder1ubuntu__, My pleasure, I just wish I could've helped more. :D17:04
iwaka_DustyMonk: I created a USB drive and installed Ubuntu, replacing the system completely17:04
Guest32791thanks lordjj, i connect to the internet using a wireless lan, i have this problem that for certain websites i get directed instead of the website I want to see to the wireless lan splash page, this happens with both firefox and chrome, it wasn't always the case, i used to be able to access those sites, but one by one it happened over time, any idea?17:05
Guest32791i tried clearing cache of both firefox and chrome, but it hasn't solved the problem17:05
iwaka_DustyMonk: I used wubi before, but not during this install.17:05
lordjjafief, just download xubuntu/kubuntu/ubuntu iso's and make 'em cds, easiest way, unless u don't wanna download too much. U could also use live usb drive with kubuntu/xubuntu-desktop installed on it17:05
Sidewinder1ubuntu__, You might also ask in #hardware, or is it ##hardware ? I forget.17:06
DustyMonkiwaka_: looks very strange to me17:06
lordjjGuest32791, is your router or ISP blocking them?17:06
iwaka_DustyMonk: The installation did not prompt me to partition the drive, perhaps that is the source of this... problem17:07
Guest32791no i don't think it's blocking them, i used to be able to access them, it doesn't say they're blocked, it just shows up the splash page of the wireless lan17:08
DustyMonkiwaka_: i dont know what this is: fuse.gvfs-fuse-daemon17:08
lordjjGuest32791, well usually the splash page would have a "retry" link. If not, what exactly does it say?17:08
iwaka_DustyMonk: I only installed the system yesterday, there can't be any trash here...17:08
edbianCan I modifying an existing (broken) ln -s ?? Do I have to delete it and create a new, correct one?17:09
Guest32791lordjj, see, how this started is that sometimes i lost connection, so instead of getting to the site, the splash page would show up, now though it shows up every time i try to get to those sites even though the connection isn't lost17:09
theadminedbian: Yeah17:09
DustyMonkiwaka_: kindly repeat your initial question, maybe someone else can help17:09
edbiantheadmin: yeah I have to delete it?17:10
theadminedbian: yep.17:10
lordjjGuest32791, i'm not i understand what you mean, can you screenshot the page and upload it, for example here: www.uloadr.com17:10
theadminedbian: Actually, not just delete, "unlink" it17:10
Guest32791so previously when i'd lost connection i'd be able to click connect on the splash page and then get through to the sites i'd wanted, but now there's no connect 'cos all there's on the splash page is disconnect as it's already connected17:11
edbiantheadmin: What does that mean?17:11
vltHello. When logging in to Ubuntu 11.04 the first time I get a message that my hardware doesn't support Unity and Ubuntu will fallback to Gnome. Any idea why?17:11
iwaka_I installed Ubuntu but did not partition the drive. Should I partition it, and if so, how should I do it? I'm NOT using dual-boot, just Ubuntu.17:11
iwaka_DustyMonk: thank you very much for your help :)17:11
edbianiwaka_: It is impossible to install ubuntu without at least creating an ext4 partition so unless you already had one you 're-partitioned'17:11
theadminedbian: Use the unlink command to remove it17:11
iwaka_edbian: what would 're-partitioning' mean in that case?17:12
edbianthat deletes it17:12
ubuntu__iwaka_, use gparted...but to do that you need to use the boot disk so the drive is unmounted17:12
theadminedbian: Yeah, except "unlink" is safer, cause rm might, under some circumstances, remove the link target, not only the link17:12
edbianiwaka_: If you install ubuntu and you don't have a ext4 partition you must create one.  This usually means shrinking other partitions.  That would be 'repartitioning'17:13
edbiantheadmin: ahh, thanks17:13
lordjjGuest32791, well appart from clearing all cache and cockies from "the beginning of time" I dnt know :/17:13
edbianhaha, cockies17:14
w30vlt, what video card do you have?17:14
iwaka_edbian: I somehow managed to install ubuntu while at the same time completely avoiding anything that involves partitioning. Unless the installer partitioned the drive for me automatically, I believe I'm still sitting with and unpartitioned drive. But then again, I'm clearly missing something.17:15
lordjjedbian, haha, laughed at it myself17:15
edbianiwaka_: Did you install using wubi?   Did you start the install while running windows?17:15
edbianiwaka_: In that case the drive is not partitioned17:15
iwaka_edbian: I installed from a USB drive, replacing Windows completely.17:16
Guest32791lordjj is there a cross-browser thing in ubuntu, like a cache or a url router of some sort, that i need to clear?17:16
edbianiwaka_: Then you re-partitioned  (especially if windows is gone, that means you must have deleted those partitions!)17:17
OerHeksiwaka_, open terminal, typ: sudo fdisk -l    ( and you should see your partitions )17:17
dfgsgfdFresh installation of Ubuntu 11.10 (RC). Installed proprietary driver for the graphics card. Rebooted. Worked. Yet it still says "No proprietary drivers installed". Any idea why?17:17

scwizardso I'm wondering why is topcat 6.0.24 the latest version in whatever repository I'm using?17:19
iwaka_OerHeks: So it is partitioned after all?17:19

iwaka_edbian: the Chinese in the 2nd row says 'extended'17:20
Guest32791well thanks lorjj :-)17:20
iwaka_edbian: I believe the one before Solaris is 'swap'17:20
edbianiwaka_: There are no windows partitions on that drive.  You must have 're-partitioned' them away :)17:21
w30vlt, either your video chip,card won't support the 3d requirements of Unity or you need a propriatary driver for a Nvidia or a ATI card17:21
iwaka_edbian: well, in that case, i believe Ubuntu did the work for me :)17:21
iwaka_thanks for your help everyone!17:21
OerHeksiwaka_,  have fun  !17:22
edbianiwaka_: It's possible.  It does give some simple high level partitioning choices such as 'replace windows' and 'install alongside windows'17:22
iwaka_edbian: I chose 'replace' :)17:22
syslqBtw, how can force unity login after I have installed nvidia drivers? Under normal session on laptop I still get gnome 2.x?17:22
w30vlt, in a terminal type lspci | grep VGA and see what that says17:22
edbianiwaka_: then it repartitioned (cause you told it to)17:22
scwizardso is there a repository that will give me the latest version of tomcat 6?17:22

mtnman80theadmin: OK.  then can help me quickly reformat it.  Then I will have all my data saved and accessbile in Windows.  The Linux box is otherwise "toast", as we know :)17:27
lordjjdfgsgfd, 3D cube thing is a Compiz effect, install compiz17:27
frediccoyeah im a noob cpudan80 cant figure out how to register17:28
mtnman80theadmin:  would be able to help me do that?17:28
Cpudan80fredicco: if you type that command you'll get a message from Nickserv with instructions17:28
dfgsgfdWhat about Classic?17:28
mtnman80theadmin: is the terminal command as follows (?): mkfs -T vfat /dev/sdb1 ???17:29
lordjjdfgsgfd, not sure what that is. If you mean the "Classis" look in Ubuntu 11+, u pick that on login screen17:29
theadminmtnman80: the t isn't supposed to be capital17:29
w30vlt, to install propriatary drivers you need to enable propriatary drivers in repository check box and then in system admin additional drivers try one that they list17:29
frediccoi did that dont really understand17:29
mtnman80theadmin: ok.  but that is the right command to reformat it to FAT32?17:30

purplefooldoes anyone know how to access a disk with an input/output error?  i need to access it to transfer the data to a new one17:41
puffI have a thinkpad t520, running ubuntu 10.4 LTS.  I've only been using the wireless, so far, but now I need to get the ethernet working so I can configure a new router.17:41
theadminbrainwave92: Arch rocks, but seriously read the wiki before ever heading to IRC, it has answers to *everything*17:41
escottpurplefool, use dd and pass it the ignore io errors flag17:41
purplefoolescott, what is dd?17:42
puffI'm not sure what the problem is;  I plug the cat5 cable into my laptop and the other end into the router, I have green lights on both ends, but I don't see a conneciton. "sudo ifconfig -a" only shows me wlan0, which I *think* is the wireless.17:43
escottpurplefool, its a low level disk copy tool. you will need to make an image of the fs to another working piece of hardware and then try to fsck/mount that image17:43
theadmincrash1hd: It looks normal, unless I missed something (it's huge)17:43
=== mang0 is now known as mang0|OUT
crash1hdtheadmin, it is huge and no it looks normal to me too17:43
crash1hdwhat I do find interesting though is that the cdrom is there in computer but I am not able to unmount or eject the tray from it17:44
purplefoolescott, do i need to download this tool or does it come with the install disk.  i am using the boot disk to get at least to here.17:44
brainwave92theadmin, right now my arch isnt booting up, after an install onto an external hard disk17:44
escottpurplefool, its on virtually any linux system out there17:44
theadminbrainwave92: Duh. Do you have the "usb" and "usbinput" hooks in your /etc/mkinitcpio.conf?17:45
puffpurplefool: dd makes a bit-for-bit image of the drive, so if you have say 50GB, it's going to create a 50GB file, even if only 30GB s in use.17:45
crash1hdtheadmin, also shouldnt there be something in the fstab?17:45
theadmincrash1hd: No, CD-ROMS aren't static17:45
theadminbrainwave92: "usb" should come right after udev17:46
purplefoolescott, the problem is that, even though disk utility sees the drive, ubuntu cannot access it in any way.  would dd still be able to copy it?17:46
escottpurplefool, should be something like "dd noerror if=/dev/sda1 of=/media/workingdrive/folder/bad_drive.img17:46
brainwave92theadmin, may i pm you?17:46
theadminbrainwave92: Sure thing.17:47
escottpurplefool, if disk utility can see it then dd should be able to copy it17:47

purplefoolescott, been reading the webpage you sent...very interesting. can use testdisk, but don't know if the partition table type is "intel" or "efi gpt"18:21
familywhat is it?18:21
escottpurplefool, if the disk is >3TB it is gpt, if it is a mac it is gpt, if it is an efi system its probably gpt, otherwise it is likely dos partition type (intel) unless you changed it18:22
underHi. I cant run rosetta. ./boincmgr: error while loading shared libraries: libwx_gtk2u_richtext-2.8.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory18:22

purplefoolescott, using 64bit and less then 3tb18:23
omghelpgirlygirl is there a way I can enable rotate cube in compiz without disabling unity?18:24
escottpurplefool, then it is most likely dos partition type, although since you evidently deleted your partition table it shouldn't matter that much18:24
n8wdoes any of u have been experiencing cpu freq lock(800Mhz in my case) in 11.04?18:24
purplefoolescott, actually, i didn't delete it, it just stopped working, but will try with intel18:25
ravengpodder 2.14 how to disable left-click-menu?18:25
n8wi understand it has smth to do with the "on demand" policy, but i dont get why it locks it on the lowest freq18:25
w30zoldar, maybe create a new user, remove the panels, put up one or two kids application icons and no logout buttons,etc. and you could just switch user to that user if you had to leave your desk.18:26

brainwave92_sherorox, first try what GirlyGirl told you19:00
sid_is it a good idea to install gnome 3 on 10.04?19:00
GirlyGirlsherorox: open terminal19:00
brainwave92_try sudo apt-get install <program>19:00
sheroroxgirlygirl: ok19:00
icerootsid_: no19:00
sid_iceroot, you say that because?19:01
icerootsid_: it will break your system, its not supported, its pulling gtk3, it will make gnome2 not usable anymore19:01
GirlyGirlsherorox: Does it work?19:02
GirlyGirlsherorox: sudo apt-get install sun-java6-jre sun-java6-plugin19:02
aarHi, does anyone know any affordable, linux-compatible usb flash drives with hardware encryption?19:02
sid_iceroot, oh i see. anyway, what version are you running?19:02
icerootsid_: 11.10 with lxde19:02
sheroroxgirlygirl: yes, so is it a GUI problem with software center then?19:02
rypervencheaar: Use any kind of flash drive. You can encrypt it with LUKS.19:03
sid_iceroot, great. i was wondering if it was worth upgrading to 11.1019:03
icerootaar: make your own encryption software ased19:03
aarrypervenche, I want hardware encryprion so I can use it in a broad range of OS without installing software19:03
icerootsid_: not now, its unstable, for 11.10 see #ubuntu+119:03
GirlyGirlsherorox: I presume19:03
aariceroot,  I want hardware encryption so I can use it in a broad range of OS without installing software19:03
sheroroxgirlygirl: is there a way to fix that?19:03
brainwave92_sherorox, you can try seeing what exactly IS the problem19:03
brainwave92_open terminal19:04
GirlyGirlsherorox: use an alernative like synaptic, file a bug report for soft center19:04
icerootaar: ? the os needs software to encrypt it, doesnt matter if hardware based or software-based19:04
tomoshowdy all19:04
sid_iceroot, of course after the stable version is released but what's your take on it? 10.04 is good enough for my use but just because i haven't seen the newer ones i was thinking of upgrading. is it too much of a hassle or do able?19:04
aariceroot, check out ironkey, or integral 360.19:04
icerootsid_: #ubuntu+119:04
aariceroot, my problem is ironkey costs more than a new liver and integral is OS-specific.19:05
sid_iceroot, thanks :)19:05
icerootsid_: and remeber this important sentence "never touch a running system"19:05
sander_How do I upgrade from one distro to another?19:05
brainwave92_sherorox, before filing a bug report, see what the problem is!19:05
sid_iceroot, haha i couldn't agree more19:05

linelevelHi. I'm having a problem where my wireless internet occasionally stops working (it drops the connection and can't reconnect, though it still shows the network in the list of SSIDs). Restarting the computer fixes this problem. Is there anything I can try, short of restarting the computer, that might fix this problem when it arises?19:59
Us3r_Unfriendlysudo apt-cache search libimobile19:59
linelevelUs3r_Unfriendly: Is that to me?20:00
BouerBouerus3r just did that20:00
BouerBouerthere's several packages but one is called libimobiledevice020:00
BouerBoueris that the right one?20:00
Us3r_Unfriendlylinelevel: no it's for BouerBouer, but in your case...what method of installing the module/driver for your card did you do?20:01
BouerBouerthere's a bunch with extentions like -dbg, -dev etc20:01
Us3r_UnfriendlyBouerBouer: install it20:01
BouerBouerokay thanks20:01
linelevelUs3r_Unfriendly: I'm pretty sure it worked out of the box. I don't think I installed any hardware driver for my wireless card.20:01

THE_GFR|WORKany ideas how to get GDM to show up via VNC so you can login not after?20:08
linelevelGirlyGirl: It's been happening for a long time, actually. Since around when I upgraded from to 10.04 (when it was new), though I'm not confident enough in the timing to claim a causal link.20:09
glassresistoranyone had any luck with the microsoft touch mouse?20:09
THE_GFR|WORKanyhow know what I need to do to make GDM show up via VNC so I can login to the gui?20:10
linelevelGirlyGirl: I'm not hopeful about preventing the problem altogether. What I'm hoping is that someone can give me some command-line-fu that will fix the problem on the fly when it arises, so that I don't need to restart my whole computer and lose all my work.20:10
GirlyGirllinelevel: Maybe /etc/init.d/networking restart20:11
=== th0r1 is now known as th0r
GirlyGirllinelevel: or sudo ifdown -a followed by sudo ifup -a20:12
linelevelGirlyGirl: I'll give the first one a shot. As for the latter, doesn't that only work when the interface is managed by /etc/network/interfaces? I'm using NetworkManager to connect.20:13
GirlyGirllinelevel: Should still work20:13
GirlyGirllinelevel: not sure though20:14
linelevelGirlyGirl: Okay, thanks. The other suggestion I just got is: sudo /etc/dbus-1/event.d/25NetworkManager restart20:14
linelevelGirlyGirl: Not sure if that still applies; It's from an Ubuntu mailing list from 2007.20:14

CrockeoI'm relatively new but I could give it a shot.20:17
BularthipWell I actually can't easilly tell it20:17
CrockeoThat's... a problem.20:17
BularthipI can't do anything, I actually cant' see anything20:17
FreeWilly_anyone ever post a question on the samba channel?20:17
bl33dNo such folder. :S20:18
KrazyKrivdacan anyone help me with turning on/off wifi for my laptop.  Need to know how to in terminal/20:18
bl33dSo where can i see what type of connection is my 3G USB stick modem using?20:18
CrockeoBularthip, have you restarted?20:18
th0rbl33d: the commands for configuring it are iwconfig and ifconfig20:18
CrockeoFirst thing with any problem in to restart.20:18
BularthipWhen I boot up my PC, I will login normally into Ubuntu, but I can't see that application panel on the left, I can't open terminal, I can't exit, resize or move this IRC window20:18
BularthipYeah, I have20:18
CrockeoMaybe the GUI managers busted?20:19
BularthipI'm pretty new on ubuntu but actually I didn't do anything to cause it20:19
oCeanCrockeo: well, no. Huge amounts of problems don't require a restart to fix20:19
th0rBularthip: if you log out, and at the login screen Sessions menu choose 'ubuntu classic' then try to log back in20:20
BularthipPreviously today I installed this umm... CCSM, I was just curious but never actually even opened it20:20
BularthipWell I dunno how to logout as ctrl+alt+del doesn't show logout option20:20
BularthipSomehow I'm excited of this, maybe I'll learn something new but still got shaky hands and panic :<20:21
bl33dth0r, okay, but that just gives me bunch of data, that does not (not to me) say anything about what is the current connection type in use (2g, 3g (one of them), or what :S20:21
oCeanDutch_: wrong channel20:22
th0rbl33d: sorry....that was for KrazyKrivda, too much traffic in too small a window <smile>20:22

subr00tI am using Ubuntu 11.04 with nVidia GeForce 7300 SE/7200 GS card.With the latest nVidia driver can not able to start unity20:22
subr00tany idea?20:22
oCeanDutch_: no idea, but it has nothing to do with this channel's topic20:22
KrazyKrivdath0r: power management: off20:23
th0rBularthip: can you use Alt-Ctl-F2 to switch to a tty?20:23
oCeanDutch_: stop it20:23
BularthipYeah, I can, also tried it earlier but dunno how to get out of it :p20:23
FreeWilly_anyone, samba share, help plz20:24
BularthipAnd as I earlier today installed ccsm, I removed it from tty but didn't help20:24
th0rKrazyKrivda: you can use those two commands to configure the wifi from the terminal20:24
bl33dth0r, Oh okay. No problem, but i would stil llike to know where can i see / select the connection type. :S20:24
KrazyKrivdath0r: i'm trying to figure out command simply to turn the wlan0 on, i see iwconfig interface power ... bnut seems to not work as I think20:24
ravengpodder 2.14 how to disable left-click-menu?20:25
th0rBularthip: switch to another tty, then use 'sudo shutdown -r now' to force a reboot. That should put you at the login screen where you can switch to gnome (ubuntu classic). That will at least get you a working environment20:25
HaematomaHow do I transform a ISO file to a bootable partition on a USB thumb drive?20:25

Bularthipth0r, will do. We'll see if I can get back here :p20:25
HaematomaThis would be done w/in Ubuntu20:25
th0rKrazyKrivda: I don't think the wifi card power is controlled by software. It is usually a switch on the laptop somewhere20:26
mdgeorgeI know it's not standard, but I'm trying to use gnome-shell...20:26
bazhangHaematoma, unetbootin20:27
mdgeorgewhen I use fullscreen applications (i.e. games), the "applications" bar still appears20:27

mdgeorgedoes anyone know of a workaround?20:27
KrazyKrivdath0r: on my laptop I have the touch sensitive buttons that are blue (on) or orange (off) lights.. the light seems unresponsive though :-\20:27
auronandacemdgeorge: gnome3 isn't supported on 11.04, can't you wait for 11.10 to be released?20:28
bazhangmdgeorge, what version of ubuntu20:28
Bularthipth0r, nothing :o It rebooted, but nothing new happened20:28
Haematomabazhang, thanks I'll check it out!20:28
th0rBularthip: did it take you to a login screen, or do you have it set up to login automatically20:28
bazhangmdgeorge, wait 4 days get it in 11.1020:28

heizmannHi everyboby. I've a little question concerning to an auto-mount of a file.img... Well, I'm using a luks format for this file, and I've got a file.key to decrypt this. So, manually, this sequence works (in root): losetup /dev/loop0 /path/to/my/cryptfile.img ; cryptsetup luksOpen /dev/loop0 hello --key-file=/path/to/my/file.key ; mount /dev/mapper/hello /my/mountpoint ;20:30

alex-Shall I buy a GTX470 or a 6850? 470 can better handle ubuntu i heard.20:33
th0rBularthip: then you just have a problem with unity. Was it working originally, before you installed ccsm?20:34
Bularthipth0r Yes, zero problems before I had installed ccsm and first reboot after20:35

th0rBularthip: it is just a config issue I suspect. Unfortunately I don't use unity, running debian now. But someone here should be able to help. When you describe the problem, tell them unity was running fine until you installed ccsm, and that you made no changes using ccsm, and the problem showed up after the install when you rebooted.20:36
