apwbdjpyosefu, I honestly have no idea, it has given me days of headache, then I decided reinstall will take me less time.00:01
crassanyone know why trying to install wine from x86_64 ubuntu prompts to remove a bunch of packages?00:01
bekkscrass: Which packages? Please show us a nopaste.00:01
apwbdjpyosefu, backup your home folder entirely, use aptoncd to backup the big packages, and do it. That is if you find no better solution.00:01
yosefuapwbdjp, thanks for the attention!00:02
apwbdjp_Rod2k, actually no, but I've given the same tutorial to a friend of mine and it worked for him00:02
leois there any way to install all multimedia codecs available? Im using ubuntu 10.04.3 LTS00:02
yosefua headache it is00:02
gliorosGuys, I am thinking to stop pay for hosting and start my own server. In doing so, if i establish a server from home running ubuntu do i need a fast connection? because most of the ISPs here in London have not good upload speed...00:03
apwbdjpyosefu, anytime.00:03
apwbdjpglioros, what are you hosting?00:03
glioros158 websites00:03
Pumpkin-does anyone ever look at any of them ?00:04
Josesordohello00:04
SIFTUglioros: do not do that from your house00:04
gliorosSIFTU why?00:04
JosesordoIt possible to change GRUB background image in ubuntu 11.10?00:04
SIFTUglioros: well I guess if you have UPS and a top notch security system you could.. but why?00:05
apwbdjpglioros, do you know how much trafic you have, through your websites?00:05
gliorospaying for a dedicated server to another company is quite expensive00:05
SIFTUglioros: also if anyone uses the sites you probably wont have enough bandwidth.. how much are you using now?00:05
_jayHey all, there is a little app that you can run from the terminal  that displays what key or input is executed, anyone know what it is?00:05
space_lawyergrep00:05
gliorosapproximately 1million users per month00:06
TausenFYI - disabling ACPI didnt fix the "network causes kworker to use 100% CPU" issue00:06
apwbdjpglioros, yeah, but they also save you the pain of buying optical fiber, UPS, a machine with enough horsepower and RAID, and stuffs.00:06
SIFTUglioros: oh is that all.. then you are fine.. go for it00:06
Jordan_U_jay: There is "xev" for simple things in a GUI environment and "showkey" for low level (needs to be run in a non-X tty).00:06
_jaythat's it Jordan_U thanks00:07
Jordan_U_jay: You're welcome.00:07
gliorosguys it gonna be cheaper i think.. I pay 1000 dollars a month for that server00:07
gliorosthats why i am thinking to switch everything home00:07
gliorosand at home i am gonna have the server next to me...00:08
apwbdjpOr switch to a cheaper host00:08
glioroshow do i know what they are doing with the server i am paying at the moment in another country ?00:08
apwbdjpYou don't need a 1000 dollars server for 1 million visits a month00:08
Pumpkin-my troll detector is going off00:08

=== bannedfrog is now known as badfrog|away
apwbdjpHum.. then yeah, you could go for it, but to answer your original question, you WILL need a good upload speed.00:09
LoganKraneThanks to all of you guys that helped me out! It took a little maneuvering, but I got it installed. Just have to figure out how to use it and get my wireless to work.00:09
SIFTUglioros: just do it!!00:09
gliorosthats my concern... guys.. what it gonna happen with the upload speed...00:10
airtonix_i'm looking to remove window decorations from the window switcher in compiz on 11.04, (i just need to know the window matching rule that would apply to the alt+tab window switcher)00:10
crassbekks: its hard to paste that in from aptitude, but for instance it wants to remove libc6 and replace it with libc-bin (which seems to be causing a cascade effect)00:10
gliorosi checked virgin media internet connections here in london and the upload them is not good00:10
gliorosare there different isps?00:10

_Rod2kI'm gonna make my dinner. A huge thank you to apwbdjp for the tip =)00:18
apwbdjpglioros, they give no info about upload speed, guess you might have to make some calls, or move to the agencies, to ask.00:19
LoganKraneI'm so new to Ubuntu, it's crazy, sorry but I don't know what you're talking about.00:19
gliorosOkay guys thanks for the info00:19
pac1press alt and f2 then type term00:19
pac1press return and the terminal application will start.00:20
LoganKraneOkay got that.00:20
pac1terminal is the command prompt in linux00:20
LoganKraneAh I see. Mkay, it says something about the firmware file not found.00:21
pac1aha!00:21
pac1so welcome to the wonderful world of doing your own technical support.00:21
LoganKraneLol so I just need to find the firmware for it.00:22
pac1and know what to do with it in linux.00:22
gliorosok just found out the upload speed is 1.361Mbps00:22
gliorosdo you think is enough?00:22
hammommahquestion. i have whole heap of media in mounted @ /media/media/...  i have chowned all perm to me owner and mythtv group but for some reason i cant see half the folders. when i ls in terminal the ones i can see are highlghted green and other which i cant see are purple?00:22
pac1If linux is telling you the firmware is the problem, that's a good sign.00:22
LoganKraneIIt actually gave me a website to go to as well.00:23
psusidoes anyone know if it is possible to either add another unity bar, or move the existing one to somewhere OTHER than the left side of the screen?00:23

moonunitzappaanyone have any ideas?00:25
pac1leo, we can't advise you on that but if you keep repeating a question you'll get the boot.00:25
apwbdjpmoonunitzappa, what's the filesystem used on the hdd?00:25
psusimoonunitzappa, it is probably formatted with fat32, which can only handle files up to 4gb in size00:25

Bartzywith gnome-terminal, opening new terminals (tabs) is a bit slow. Takes 1-2 seconds. Any idea?00:26
leocan anyone help? is it safe to install plugins-bad package?00:26
pac1My solution was to install windows in virtualbox and use that.00:26
hammommahanyone here know how to change other permissions with chown?00:26
apwbdjpmoonunitzappa, if you can't reformat your drive right now, you can bypass that issue by spliting your file in two.00:26
psusimoonunitzappa, windows only understands fat and ntfs00:26
stevejb@hammomah you may way chmod00:27
stevejbchown is ownership00:27
stevejbchmod is permissions00:27
Felix72moonunitzappa: i used ntfs for that. might not be really recommended but worked for me over the past years without any problems00:27

hammommahanyone here?00:28
hammommahlag soz00:28
stevejbhammomah I think you want chmod00:29
apwbdjpmoonunitzappa, you can still zip-split it, I think. It's far away from being the best solution, only do that if reformating is not a solution at the moment.00:29
LoganKranepacl, is there a way to find out the manufacturer and product through Ubuntu?00:29
moonunitzappai have a USB thumb drive that i could use. but when itry to format says its inuse00:29

pac1use the command: less /var/log/syslog00:30

apwbdjpmoonunitzappa, or just use the disk utility (system -> administration -> disk utility, if I'm right) to both unmount, and format.00:31
hammommahdrwxrwxr-x this is permissions for folder i cant see?00:31

TechnicusHello . . . I have installed Uubuntu 11.04 and was displeased with the Unity desktop, so I tried installing KDE, and ended up installing the whole Kubuntu Desktop, I am fine with that, it is kust that when I boot in verbose mode I do not want the screen to flash blue . . . how can I configure the boot so that does not happen?00:41
Josesordotibo_, yeah =) .. 60 FPS .. is bad =/00:41

Josesordotibo_, I just did a fresh install .. I guess this version is using the native driver for my ATI00:43
gantryHow do I change the window behavoir in gnome-shell so that it doesn't to have a mouse focus, but not raise the window?00:43
ich_hi00:44
tibo_<Josesordo> if it's a desktop, yeah, that's slow... for a recent machine, it should be 1000. for embedded platform, 60fps is not bad00:44
apwbdjpDan_E, the blank disks are supposed to show on Nautilus (the file explorer) first, with the drives, does it not?00:44
Dan_EI will look00:44
Josesordotibo_, well is a laptop .. old ASUS hehe00:45
gantryThe dialog boxes emerging from the title bar, is that a feature that Ubuntu added or is that a GNOME3-shell thing?00:46
tibo_g<Josesordo> try that: glxinfo | grep rendering00:46
gantryhello <tap><tap> is this thing on?00:47
tibo_if it's disabled, that'd explain why it's slow. you'll have to install the latest drivers00:47
escottgantry, do you mean focus follows mouse?00:47
gantrymy focus already follows the mouse00:48
gantryI just want it to not raise the window when it gets the focus00:48
dr_willisits a unity ubuntu. 10 thing00:48
gantrydr_willis, how do I turn this off?00:48
Josesordotibo_, well said: direct rendering --> YES00:49
gantrydr_willis, I don't even know what it is called00:49
dr_williswhixh thing.. you are asking about 2 differebt things00:49
tibo_<Josesordo> ok... maybe that's all your card can provide :/00:49
dr_willisthe auto raise of focus. not seen a settig to disable that. may not be setable at this time.00:50
escottgantry, i was under the impression that focus follows mouse was completely disabled in gnome3. so i dont know how you can have it at all.00:50
tibo_<Josesordo> if it's an integrated GPU, they are supposed to be slow, especially on an old laptop...00:50
gantrytwo things: first, I want to config my wm so that the focused window is not raised; second I want to have normal dialog boxes, not ones that drop down from the title bar....I would appreciate any config help the community can offer me00:51
dr_willisthe dialogs slideing down from  the titlebars is a new feature of 11.10 and most likely is a compiz plugin00:51
escottgantry, http://blog.bodhizazen.net/linux/gnome-3-focus-follows-mouse/00:51
escottgantry, although that doesn't make any sense as gnome3 doesn't use mutter00:51
Josesordotibo_, mm.. well is dedicated.. 512MB of VRAM .. but in old times this card give more FPS ..00:51
dr_willisi like the dialogs pinned into the windows. they worked hard to make it work well.00:51

Jordan_Unimbiotics: I don't think can ls is what you want for searching for files unless you're working with shallow directory trees with few files in them.01:34
apwbdjpr4y, the method I would use would be to install what you want, then save the packages (not the entire install) with APTonCD01:34

antnash_alright guys. What am I doing wrong in this bash script...     if [! -e filename]; then02:03
ygorHello Guys..im running Ubuntu 11.10 by a flash drive, and to do that i used the universal-usb-installer.well, it works fine but, how can i change the language from english to something else running a live-cd, or a live-flash-drive? Let me explain better, i cant log-off to change the language because im using a live-cd, and if i do so, its asks me user name and password, which i dont have.02:03
r4yRight02:03
[PanzeR]DzaDzei need someone who know it,  i need to change right click menu selection color02:03
MagicJI have a planar touch screen running on 11.04 - works VERY well.  How do I change the touch sensitivity02:04
Steak_flash installed just fine with the Software Center... thanks guys02:04
apwbdjpygor, someone today tried logging out with ctrl+alt+delete, could that work with you?02:04
dr_willisSteak_:  theres a check box during install that would have auto installed it i think.02:05
darthindyheyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy02:05
r4yAlright, thank you.02:05
darthindywasup guys02:05
k3nqt sdk package name so I can install it?02:05
=== Steak_ is now known as Steak
MagicJhow do I upgrade to 11.10 and stay with Gnome?02:05
Jordan_Uygor: I would generally recommend a standard install (which will work fine on a flash drive, even on multiple computers) if you have enough space.02:05
k3nis qt already on ubuntu?02:06
escottMagicJ, you don't02:06
Jordan_U!notunity | MagicJ02:06
ubottuMagicJ: Ubuntu 11.10 uses GNOME 3 with the !unity shell by default.  To use GNOME Shell instead, install the "gnome-shell" package and investigate "gnome-tweak-tool".  For GNOME Fallback mode, which is similar to GNOME 2, install "gnome-panel". Both packages will place entries in the Sessions dropdown. Using Natty? See !classic02:06
interlude2011Regarding firefox: the firefox-bin process does not  shutdown when I exit firefox. Could this be a sign of a trojan?02:06
dr_willisMagicJ:  you mean stay with gnome-2?02:06
mattiekinshey guys... how do I setup smuxi to get to channel #witp?02:06
MagicJescott:  what do you mean02:06
MagicJdr_willis: yes02:06
dr_willisMagicJ:  simple... you dont.02:06
escottMagicJ, if you want gnome2 you don't upgrade, or you pick another distribution02:06
ygorapwbdjp? yeah i tried this but the live-cd asks for this user name and password, someone told me ubuntu and ubuntu, but did not work out.02:06
apwbdjpk3n, try sudo apt-get install qt[tab][tab], you'll get a list.02:06
Steakdr_willis: during the OS install or on opening Firefox?02:07
dr_willisgnome2 is dead time to move on.. ;)02:07
jost__i've got a problem here... i run a package update on my Server via SSH. Usually, the update runs on its own, so I didn't watch it. Now this update prompted me (for a passphrase), but upon noticing this the ssh connection was already broken. The update process is still waiting. My question is: How do I get the system back without causing damage?02:07
dr_willisSteak:  install of the os.02:07
Jordan_Uinterlude2011: No. It's probably just a bug or a firefox window that you aren't noticing is still open.02:07
MagicJyuck - so this is the end of the line for me?02:07
apwbdjpygor, find your username with the whoami command, and change your password with sudo passwd yourusername02:07
jost__is there a way to simply send the process the passphrase?02:07
ygorJordan_U? how? i dont understand whats a standard install.. i mean i just told the software to install ubuntu in this flash drive and no parameters were asked...02:08
cryptodirarunning 10.10 amd/64 toshiba notebook here...... does anyone know if/when the keyboard backlight problem will be fixed???  it never works beyond POST....  :(02:08
dr_willisMagicJ:  gnome2 is dead...  officially.. at least02:08
Steakdr_willis: ok I'm on a Live CD, didn't give many options02:08
Jordan_UMagicJ: As the factoid states, GNOME's "fallback" session is similar to GNOME-2, and in addition XFCE is similar to GNOME2 and the developers have stated that they don't intend to make any major shifts like GNOME has.02:08
MagicJwhat are other distros doing?02:08
dr_willisMagicJ:  using gnime 302:09
mattiekinsanyone here using smuxi?02:09
Jordan_Uygor: I mean to boot from a different CD / USB and run the Ubuntu installer. What you have right now is more accurately described as a "LiveUSB" than an Ubuntu installation and has many drawbacks.02:09
MagicJok - is gnome 3 like gnome 2 - it is this unity thing that I don't like02:09
mattiekinsor is ther a better irc client for linux?02:09
MagicJmattiekins: I use chatzilla02:10
dr_willisMagicJ:  and you have actually tried unity for how long?02:10
interlude2011Thanks Jordan_U. I ran chkrootkit but it didn't come up with anything except a false positive.02:10
mattiekinsdoes it work well on ubuntu?02:10
ygorapwbdjp ok...its done..hope it works..thanks.02:10
apwbdjpmattiekins, for gui I use xchat, when on low power I use irssi.02:10
Jordan_Uinterlude2011: You're welcome.02:10
escottMagicJ, its conceptually similar to unity, but you should try it on a liveusb02:10
MagicJdr_willis: about a month - tere are some things that I like about it - but there is too much I don't02:10
mattiekinsxchat never wants to connect to my server02:10
dr_willisMagicJ:  gnome3 is not like gnome2. the fallback mode is a crutch  also02:10
MagicJdr_willis: is gnome 3 an option for 11.1002:11
mattiekinsdr_willis: yes02:11
ygorJordan_U yeah maybe i could give a try and try to reinstall somehow..thanks02:11
dr_willisits in the repos yes... MagicJ02:11
k3nis there an option on sudo apt-get install that gets dependencies included?02:12
Jordan_Uygor: You're welcome.02:12
apwbdjpk3n, actually, I think it does it without the need to tell it to02:12
flopexk3n: sudo apt-get -f install02:12
Jordan_Uk3n: apt-get always installs any dependencies.02:12
k3nI'm getting a lot of broken packages02:13
k3nI'm on 10.0402:13
flopexk3n: maybe you just need to update02:13
apwbdjpk3n, that's usually because of removing, more than from installing02:13
k3npossibly02:13
k3nnope still broken packages02:14
k3nunmet dependencies...02:15
k3nqt doesn't already come on ubuntu?02:15

k3nIt gives blank prompt02:16
apwbdjpk3n, gksu sill prompt you for your password (the way sudo does)02:16

skegeekSomeone in #VirtualMin said it works pretty well with 10.04 and/or earlier releases. Is this true or do some people do custom "hacks" to -make- it work?02:17
KhayyamDoes anyone have any reccomendations for ubuntu 11.10 as far as 64-bit or 32-bit? I noticed 32-bit is reccomended on the download website.02:18
dr_willisKhayyam:  go 64bit of your hardware supports it.02:19
apwbdjpKhayyam, use 32 bits if you have a 32 bits machine, with no more than 3 gigs of ram.02:19
pfifoKhayyam, go 64, it only recommends 32 in case you dont know what your bus size is02:19
eHAPPYIts nearly 2012...why is anyone using 32bit on modern hardware ^_^02:19
pfifoi have 27 32 bit laptops02:19
apwbdjpeHAPPY, on netbooks02:20
dr_willisarm cpus are 32bit at this time i hear. 64bit ones comming soon02:20
dr_willisbut thats not quite the same ;)02:20

etandelNeed some help: How do I change my DM from lightdm to GDM? Or better, where is the file that has the script that starts ligthtdm on boot?02:21
robin0800Steak, you can do it from the adobi site which will then open the software centre02:21
admiralshlorkyapwbdjp: nah, it's because it's a netbook02:21
dr_willisetandel:  sudo dpkg-reconfigure gdm02:21

escottetandel, uninstall gdm and install lightdm02:21
pfifodr_willis, Hello, good to see you02:22
apwbdjpadmiralshlorky, oh, I thought. 'cuz I read somewhere that some nettops have atom to be fanless02:22
jost_psusi, this is what happened: I connected via ssh to my server and ran an update with apt-get02:22
dr_willispfifo:  moo! ;)02:22
etandelThx. Its for a friend's pc and i don't use ubuntu, just arch =( .02:22
dr_willissome nettops are fanless..02:23
admiralshlorkyapwbdjp: some do, but this is a linux channel, and linux people have boners for repurposing old hardware02:23
zorobabelokay I'm stupid, how do I resume an operation after pressing ctl + z in terminal02:23
jost_this update prompted me, but by the time i notices the prompt i got a "broken pipe"-Error02:23
admiralshlorkyapwbdjp quite frankly, i can't blame them02:23

psusijost_, restart the upgrade?02:24
pfifokang_, hi02:24
D_Russanyone know how to do changing wallpapers in unity?02:24
robin0800Steak, thats not right you just have to select which one you want on the adobe site02:24
jost_psusi: The apt-get process is still running (and probably waiting for input)02:25
=== Karl is now known as Guest45789
apwbdjpjost_, kill it, restart the upgrade02:26
jost___psusi: The apt-get process is still running (and probably waiting for input). I don't want to kill it, as this might break something.02:27
apwbdjppsusi, It has pretty good crash recovery, I believe02:27
Josesordohow I can see the system tray icons on Ubuntu 11.10? .. Please02:27
apwbdjppsusi, i interupted many upgrades, before02:27
robin0800Johnnychimpo, then you create a new partition in the unused space02:27
zorobabeldr_willis, 'no such job' is the reply02:27
zorobabeland no jobs listed after 'jobs'02:28
jost___apwbdjp, i'm the one having that problem :-)02:28
dr_williszorobabel:  what did you do exactly?  you may want to check some bash guides on 'job control'02:28
Steakrobin0800: I got it figured out, thanks02:28
apwbdjp^^ jost_ you'll have to excuse me it's 2:30 AM in here ^^02:28
zorobabeljust paused via ctrl+z during a sudo apt-get02:29
zorobabelbut okay02:29
dr_willisthe sudo may be the key. its running as the root user perhaps?02:29
jost___apwbdjp: no problem - 3:30 AM here :-)02:29
apwbdjpjost_, I believe it's not much of a risk. And keep this in mind for further ssh: http://mattiasgeniar.be/2008/06/04/screen-a-must-for-ssh/02:30
apwbdjpjost___, you could've gone back exactly where you left it.02:31
dr_willisscreen, byobu, tmux, and i think theres another one or 2 similer apps...02:31
jost___ok, thanks for the hint02:32
D_Russcan someone help me out with nautilis?02:32
apwbdjpdr_willis, I find byobu not so suitable for small terminals (netbook again). Never tried tmux really02:33
jost___thanks for the hints - simply sending the apt-get process a TERM signal and using "dpkg --configure -a" worked02:33
apwbdjpD_Russ, ask your question02:33
D_Russis there a way to make the images larger for selecting images in applications such as gimp, so that i dont have to manually prview every image in the folder to find the correct one02:33
dr_willisapwbdjp:  oh? i use it over ssh on my android phone. smaller then a netbook...02:34
jost___good night everyone02:34
apwbdjpjost___, good night!02:34
apwbdjpdr_willis, ^^ got used to spaced terminals and large fonts, I believe ^^02:35
dr_willisi got a mini-netbook like setup here. android phone and a mini bluetooth keybord+touchpad02:35

D_Russis there a way to get thumbnail preview in apps that require me to find images, so that i dont have to go through hundreds of images to find the correct one that i need?02:38
KSHawkEyeapwbdjp: from files, it's important that I can preserve the file structure though, I don't care about the standards as long as it works on ubuntu again. I need it to follow system links, and allow for executing02:38

whateverelse2is it external?03:08
apwbdjpThat is on Linux. On windows, you resize a partition, you break the installation.03:08
dr_willistruth63:  start with the basics. try mounting it by hand yet? what kind of hd is it?03:08
BrianXP7apwbdjp, I'm back03:08

ConstyI'm having an issue with the current version of the ATI proprietary driver. When I attempt to install it, unity completely fails to start because libGL.so.1 isn't found. I'm assuming this is some kind of a weird issue on 64-bit platforms since the file does exist in /usr/lib64 for example. Even making a symbolic link to it though in /usr/lib seems to still cause Unity to fail.03:20

bjrohanI am a Linux newbie. I am running a dual boot laptop. As I migrate from Windows to Ubunto I have cleaned off more of my windows partition. Today I repartitioned my windows drive, giving me unallocated space. While trying to increase my Linux partition (via live CD) I inadvertantly copied my Linux partition to the unallocated space. My question is, now what do I do? Where is that new partition mounted inside Ubuntu, and what is the best way06:32
bjrohanto use it?06:32

bjrohanurlin2u in Gparted I right clicked the original Linux partion, and an option of move/resize was presented. It wouldn't let me increase the size, only decrease, so I selected move. it asked where I wanted to move to, I clicked the unallocated spot, and it appears to have copied it. Now running gparted while in Ubuntu, it shows /dev/SDA1 /dev/sda3 (was unallocated and 60GB)/dev/sda5 and /dev/sda6. right now /dev/sda5 is locked06:41
Tomassomm i did .. but anyway i get tempted.. xvideos is driving me mad06:41

surialI'm a bit confused; when I apt-get install znc and znc-extra, I run into a known ubuntu bug where znc's current version is 0.074-1 but extras is 0.070-1 and these are mostly not compatible. However, if I search the debian package search, I see 0.094, i.e. a much higher version. This got me wondering: my /etc/apt/sources.list still has entries for jaunty and karmic. Does apt-get dist-upgrade upgrade me to Ocelot?07:00
bjrohanmcc what is "df"07:01

Gentoo64Newbeeans, you dont uninstall08:34
barecrackerjapy: they want it to be all interface for all, pc and tablets etc08:34
LasersNewbeeans: You install it from scratch. Not the other way.08:34
JapyDoogeNewbeeans: if you want to move to another distro, usually you just install it over this one and choose to format the drive during installation of that distro. You will loose personal data then tho, except when /home is in a different partition and you choose to not reformat that one08:34
NewbeeansI see.08:35

Lasers!notunity | JapyDooge08:42
ubottuJapyDooge: Ubuntu 11.10 uses GNOME 3 with the !unity shell by default.  To use GNOME Shell instead, install the "gnome-shell" package and investigate "gnome-tweak-tool".  For GNOME Fallback mode, which is similar to GNOME 2, install "gnome-panel". Both packages will place entries in the Sessions dropdown. Using Natty? See !classic08:42

ubottuglda19: Packages in Ubuntu may not be the latest. Ubuntu aims for stability, so "latest" may not be a good idea. Post-release updates are only considered if they are fixes for security vulnerabilities, high impact bug fixes, or unintrusive bug fixes with substantial benefit. See also !backports, !sru, and !ppa.09:21

Lasersoddy_: It is possible. Yes. I just don't want to get into it because it would enable me to search forums and archives for hours.09:25
oddy_Lasers: then tell me what to search about, and I'll do it09:26
Lasersoddy_: ubuntu busybox recovery, for starters.09:27

Lasers_Rod2k: Well. Do you even know if your phone can use Internet through BT (from computer?)09:32
Lasers_Rod2k: Some smartphones can do Wifi. It really varies on phone models (and linux/Windows/Mac).09:33

JapyDoogeinstall zip or unzip09:42
JapyDooge7zip is for the 7z format09:43

SubNormalphlak_user nope11:12
phlak_userSubNormal, does the route command show default route 0.0.0.0 as 192.168.111.1 ?11:13
Alivessoreau: here is the problem i am having, illustrated in the screenshots: http://screenshots.debian.net/package/irssi ... notice how the statusbar on one is darkblue and light blue on the other?  mine is light blue now and hard to read since switching to xterm color profile instead of linux-console... im trying to get it to be dark blue again11:14
phlak_userSubNormal, it should look like this -> 0.0.0.0         192.168.111.1   0.0.0.0         UG    0      0        0  eth011:14
soreauAlives: In that case, you might try #irssi11:14
jribAlives: change the color profile back?11:15
Alivessoreau: yeah im there too... they asked me what configure options irssi was compiled with, so thats why im here11:15
soreauAlives: ok, still looking11:15
lucianhello. my thinkpad e325 doesn't seem to want to boot from my ubuntu usb drive, what else could I do?11:15
Alivesjrib: xterm color profile is much more preferred for all other progs, vim, bash, etc... it accurately reports the colors11:15

phlak_userlucian, check with another usb drive11:16
Myth17soreau, BIOS settings.hmm I will have to check. :|11:16

Alivesjrib: yeah i know... i cant get it to display colors properly in xterm... which term do you use?11:16

Alivessee if that works11:21
lucianAlives: no, it hasn't suddenly stopped working11:21
phlak_userSubNormal, you need to add the route command in the /etc/network/interfaces file like so -> up route add -net 0.0.0.0 gw 192.168.111.1 dev eth111:21
ActionParsniplucian: did you MD5 test the ISO you downloaded?11:21
lucianActionParsnip: nope11:21

phlak_userSubNormal,  sudo route add -net 0.0.0.0 gw 192.168.111.111:22
Aliveslucian: i assume it uses grub... you could try to re-install grub on it, not with apt-get, but with grub-install11:22

lucianAlives: but i can't boot anything other than windows, how could i install grub on it in the first place?11:22
AlivesActionParsnip: hes not doing that though he says it used to work and all of a sudden stopped... im assuming due to a new kernel being installed and a re-run of grub-install11:22

simion314ActionParsnip: what should i scan with nmap the router IP?11:23

lucianAlives: no, i'm saying it hasn't suddenly stopped. I'm just trying now, on a brand new laptop11:23
Aliveslucian: oh, well try startup disk creator first then11:23
lucianbut yeah, i'll check the image too11:23
Alivesif that works then you know you can boot off usb and all that11:23
soreauMyth17: After that, did you try enabling the physical switch?11:23
Alivesyou might be able to even boot off usb and reinstall to usb with that11:23
ActionParsnipsimion314: that isn't a full question11:24

dr_willisNertskull: run your own server11:40
Nertskulldr_willis: yeah, that's the answer I keep coming back to, some sort of IRC server or something akin to that11:40
SubNormalphlak_user no I mean, it took about 5 sec for the command to kick in, I had then about 70ms ping11:40
phlak_userSubNormal, ok11:40

pr3d4t0rGreetings.11:50
pr3d4t0rUbuntu Server 10.04 LTS patched and up-to-date.  About 3 hours ago I stopped being able to create new processes.  Everything I try from the shell gives bash: /path/to/executable: Input/Output Error.  I can't even sudo -u root so that I could re-start the server.  The server is about 9,000 miles from me and I'd prefer to restart it ASAP rather than wait for the morning staff to come in, about 5 hours from now.  Can you recommend any actions?  Thanks in a11:52

deej1976!notunity11:55
ubottuUbuntu 11.10 uses GNOME 3 with the !unity shell by default.  To use GNOME Shell instead, install the "gnome-shell" package and investigate "gnome-tweak-tool".  For GNOME Fallback mode, which is similar to GNOME 2, install "gnome-panel". Both packages will place entries in the Sessions dropdown. Using Natty? See !classic11:56
schnufflethrope: I settled for LXDE using Lubuntu11:56
thropewhat happened to the release process? upgrades used to be so smooth but with removing gcc 4.3 and this unity rubbish its a complete disaster11:56

admiralshlorkyout of curiosity, with one of those, would you write the shell script and just start the watch process?13:23
propheti just installed ubuntu 11.10, then installed compizmanager and now my unity has gone13:23
admiralshlorkyor would the watch part actually be part of the shell script?13:23
propheti did ctrl-alt-backspace in the meantime13:23
prophetdue to a freeze13:24
apwbdjpadmiralshlorky, watch doesn't need to be a part of a shell script. You can use shell script if you actually wanna do something different with the output (send to file, or something)13:24
admiralshlorkyyeah13:24
admiralshlorkyso, i could do watch -n 30 ./shellscript13:24
apwbdjpYeah13:25
apwbdjpadmiralshlorky, you'd have the same effect with while true do ...; sleep xx; done;13:25
admiralshlorkyand the shell script could essentially be if [ -e "torrent file output" ] or whatever13:25
apwbdjpadmiralshlorky, you'll have to check for changes yourself, but gives more flexibility13:25
admiralshlorkywell13:25
admiralshlorkyi like the modular aspect of watch13:26
admiralshlorkybeing able to invoke a single instance of the script would be rather nice if there's already a function to loop stuff around every once in a while13:26
admiralshlorkyas opposed to being only able to invoke the looped version of the script13:26
apwbdjpadmiralshlorky, right13:26

qxtJust installed a clients machine with Ubuntu. Recommended Arch Linux but they wanted Ubuntu. I am about to compile a new kernel "Linux 3.0.8". Since this machine using AES256 with a 512 Whirlpool hash digest for full disk encryption I need to make sure AES-NI of the SB 2600 is enabled. The kernel flags should be CONFIG_CRYPTO_AES=y14:30
qxtCONFIG_CRYPTO_AES_X86_64=m14:30

deej1976!notunity | qxt14:32
ubottuqxt: Ubuntu 11.10 uses GNOME 3 with the !unity shell by default.  To use GNOME Shell instead, install the "gnome-shell" package and investigate "gnome-tweak-tool".  For GNOME Fallback mode, which is similar to GNOME 2, install "gnome-panel". Both packages will place entries in the Sessions dropdown. Using Natty? See !classic14:32
DarsVaedaif you use ALT+TAB and navigate to "show desktop" and choose that, then use STR+ALT+ARROW right or left -  do you get all empty workspaces too?14:33
adi11hi all. i installed ubuntu 11.10 on my hp dv 7600. this is dual boot with win7. after grub screen it starts the loading the os, so the ubuntu logo and the dots are loading. than it hangs on a black screen for about one minute. after that it load the OS ok. than on shut down it takes like a min or more. its like in the times of feisty fawn. what possibly causes the hangover ? is there a log text file to see what causes this? thanks14:34
jesus_schnuffle ok thanks how would i do that useing the terminal14:35
qxtdeej1976 Even in Gnome 3 the traditional desktop metaphor is been trashed.14:35

be01850RaTTuS|BIG: (sorry if I do not follow the etiquette, I'm not used to IRC) Are you still there?14:38

be01850schnuffle: I'd just need the output of the following command to repair my system: find /usr /etc -ls14:40
jesus_schnuffle how would i do that14:40
RaTTuS|BIGbe01850  - sorry been afk - if you have been fiddling with a startup script and broken your system then boot from a livecd and try and fix it that way - if it is something else - explain in more detail - someone should be able to help14:41

riffautaeCrazy: so you want to install linux on one big partition?15:07
SunTzuaconbere is a module used to access it?15:07
Crazyriffautae: yes thats it15:07
Klunkriffautae - ctrl-alt-f2 does nothing. How can I tell if I have actually got a booting system. I have tried using the numpad keys to change resolution as well and that didnt work15:07
aconbereSunTzu: a module? (sorry not sure what that means)15:07
SunTzuaconbere kernel module loaded15:07

vishalwhere can I discuss about new gnome shell (gnome3) on ubuntu 11.04? On #gnome or else other recommendations?15:08
riffautaeCrazy: yes when installing choose custom partitions and make one large one, then tell it to mount it as '/'. later you will have to look up how to make swap a file intead of a partition15:08
KlunkNo I get nothing. I get the PC showing that it is not finding a CD to boot from, then the screen goes blank and I get the sugnal out of range error15:08
aconbereSunTzu: hmmm I'm not sure honestly. I15:08
riffautaeCrazy: the other option is to make one large partition and install lvm on top, then you can change and resize partitions how ever you want and other os's will just see it as one mystery partition15:09

ubottuKlunk: Ubuntu 11.10 uses GNOME 3 with the !unity shell by default.  To use GNOME Shell instead, install the "gnome-shell" package and investigate "gnome-tweak-tool".  For GNOME Fallback mode, which is similar to GNOME 2, install "gnome-panel". Both packages will place entries in the Sessions dropdown. Using Natty? See !classic16:03

bruderbellcompdoc: so given that the albums directory has root owner, is there a way for me to get the share to give newly created directories the www-data owner?16:32
compdocbruderbell, that Im not sure of. I do it manually16:33
dcherniv[   49.686405] EXT4-fs (sda1): re-mounted. Opts: errors=remount-ro,commit=016:33
dcherniv[  628.164872] exe (2025): /proc/2025/oom_adj is deprecated, please use /proc/2025/oom_score_adj instead.16:33
bruderbellcompdoc: sounds fair enough.  So my primary concern is just getting the share to allow creating directories and writing files16:33
bjrohandr_willis my best guess, /dev/sda3 is what I boot into as I go to filesystem in Nautlis right click and I get 51 GB free. /dev/sda5 is my original Linux partition at 37GB16:34
compdocbruderbell, I would say so16:34
bruderbellcompdoc: so for that, I just need to match the samba.conf user and group to the permissions of the shared directory?16:34
dchernivblind, ^ seems weird, looks like sda1 was remounted16:34
compdocbruderbell, if you use the same owner as the user who logs on, its all very easy16:34
blinddcherniv: i don't know how i didn't notice that... what does that mean?16:35
=== chavo is now known as chavov
bjrohandr_willis also I have a pic of gparted here: http://imagebin.org/18359016:35
compdocbruderbell, www-data would need a password, which it might have, but do you know what it is?16:35
dchernivblind, is your "/" partition on sda1?16:35
blindit should be.16:35
bruderbellcompdoc: i do not.  But the share directory is 777 permissions.  shouldn't even anonymous users be able to write to that?16:36
=== jthomas_ is now known as TheDracle
compdocbruderbell, its easy enough to test16:37
bruderbellcompdoc: do I need to restart a service or anything after editing the conf file?16:38
compdocbruderbell, I think, but not sure, that samba might require and username, password, and permissions16:38
compdocbruderbell, yes, I think you need to restart smbd after changes16:39
dr_willisbjrohan:  somthing seems odd with your partition start/end numhbers... looking at them again..16:39
MaryF\cknPop\nsmoin.16:40
dr_willisbjrohan:  sda3 is befor sda2. wich is a little odd. Might be causing issues.. im not sure about that.16:40
bruderbellcompdoc: strange that you mention a password.  should I have a line in my conf file to give the pass?16:40
MaryF\cknPop\nsI ran apt-get remove apache2 and I still see it under /etc/init.d/16:41
RaTTuS|BIGMaryF\cknPop\ns - see apt-get purge16:41
dr_willisbjrohan:  if you are just using 4 partitions total. you could make them all primaries. and not mess with the  extended/logicls also.16:41
MaryF\cknPop\nsI want to reinstall it as it were from a fresh ubuntu installation.  FreeSwitch butchered my set up with vhosts and I want the original settings to restore.16:41
bruderbellcompdoc: oh for the love.  I made all those changes to the conf file all this while, but never restarted the service.16:41
dr_willisMaryF\cknPop\ns:  thats the 'purge' option,  to remove all configs.16:42
compdocbruderbell, no, you enable 'security = user' in /etc/samba/smb.conf, and it works with the user's password automatically.16:42
compdocdont enter a passowrd into the conf file16:42
dr_willisbjrohan:  well im off to bed. I will be back on in about 12 hrs..16:42
bruderbellcompdoc: roger that16:42
bjrohandr_willis my original intent had been to shrink sda1 as it is windows, and add that extra 60 GB to my 37 GB Linux16:43
bjrohanThat is still what I would like to do. I appreciate the help dr_willis16:43

=== idefix is now known as vinnie48
compdocbruderbell, if you added your username to the same group as www-data, and give the group permissions to write to the folder, that might be an alternative16:45

blindvsingh165: I am indeed ! but I'm 32 bit. any chance one of your partitions is remounting itself?16:57
mxedbjrohan, oh, you have 3 primary partitions  on the hd, it means you can use it to put in mbr and boot on these partiitons the fourth one and the rest will allways be extended ones, so you can use as example sda1 as primary one that boot up your linux on an extended  partition.16:57

panfistbut it says that the target doesn't support symlinks17:10
mxedbjrohan, right hehe17:10
panfisti have configured samba to follow symlinks, but google searching for creating symlinks on a samba share has turned up mixed results17:10
panfista couple of sites said that you can't, and other sites said you can as long as samba is sharing a fs that supports symlinks, and as far as i know that is true since it's an ext4 fs17:11
