javier_israel: ok, thanks!00:00
DinoMuffinlotus-blade: sudo mkdir /media/cdimg ; sudo mount <iso image here> /media/cdimg00:00
javier_someone else has any idea, how to fix it? Repeat: I installed banshee-extension-clutterflow, everything fine, I changed some of its options and then I can't open banshee (except if I uninstall the extension, which I still would like to use). Ideas about to fix that?00:01
israeljavier_: you can try, sudo find / -name *banshee*00:01
DinoMuffinthat, or I think there's a program, like "furious iso mount" or something in the ubuntu package manager00:01
flowerpotwith System V init, you could start up in single user mode or bring a system from multi-user mode down to single-user mode (e.g. to perform maintenance).  How is this same task accomplished with Upstart?00:01
DinoMuffinif you watn a gui00:01
javier_DinoMuffin, what did you mean with "to the logs"? I think I've never done that00:01
DinoMuffinjavier_: when a program crashes, it will usually forward its error output to the /var/log directory00:02
DinoMuffinnormally syslog00:02
DinoMuffinor, you can run the program from a terminal window00:02
mcphailflowerpot: debian/ubuntu have never supported use of runlevels like that00:02
DinoMuffinand it will forward it to the terminal window00:02

willdabeastHow do you boot a Windows XP cd if the current OS is Ubuntu, and on Startup I cannot access my keyboard to enter the BIOS. Is there a way to start the installation while logged in?00:03
acerimmerwilldabeast: you can't get to your bios?  that's not good00:03
Rinso question, does linux have a huge database of drivers that it can access?00:03
DinoMuffinwilldabeast: that's a task for your bios00:03
acerimmerwilldabeast: xp???  for what?00:03
DinoMuffinwilldabeast: make sure that the CD drive is first inthe boot priority00:03
willdabeastacerimmer, I can get to my bios, but it won't recognize my keyboard for some reason00:04
DinoMuffinwilldabeast: or hold tab when you computer starts to choose a boot drive00:04
willdabeastdinomuffin, yea that's what I am trying to change00:04
israelwilldabeast: weird cuestion, mmm change the keyboard usb by ps2 and try to get in the setup00:04
mcphailRin: the linux kernel is full of "drivers"00:04
Rinso how does it choose which one it use, and does it do it automatically?00:04
DinoMuffinwilldabeast: oh, what's your keyboard? USB?00:05
israelwilldabeast: try pressing F900:05
mcphailRin: it chooses automatically and you rarely have to override it00:05
Rinso basically, i create a live cd, and boot my new computer using that cd and it will autp configure most everything?00:06
willdabeastisrael, it didn't do anything.00:06
willdabeastDinomuffin, let me check00:06
zennez0009anyone here uses zim wiki desktop?00:06
javier_DinoMuffin, what I find tehre is "Jan 31 19:04:26 javier-Aspire-5742 kernel: [15809.971686] ptrace of non-child pid 26261 was attempted by: gdb (pid 26348)"00:06
mcphailRin: unless you are very unlucky, yes00:06
javier_DinoMuffin, doesnt say a lot to me...00:06
Rinalright.  that makes me feel a ton better about linux then.  XD00:06
israelwilldabeast: mmm then you need to enter setup and set boot secuence cd first00:07
DinoMuffinjavier_: but it's working now, correct?00:07
mcphailRin: it is magic when it works... (which is most of the time)00:07
Rinmind if a query you mcphail, and ask a few other questions i have on my mind?00:07
javier_DinoMuffin, yes, because I unistalled the extension00:07
willdabeastdinomuffin, the keyboard flashed on and turned off, it's not a keyboard problem though I use it on my computer all the time.00:07
mcphailRin: happy to reply in channel but I'm going to bed soon00:08
DinoMuffinjavier_: I've never used banshee, but has it updated recently? the extension may no longer be compatible00:08
Rinok, well, i was just wondering about how linux "drivers" come to be, are they done by the oem, or by other people?00:08
vandal-willdabeast, i had similiar issue with pretty new usb keyboard. problem solved with usb to ps2 adapter ;)00:08
DinoMuffinwilldabeast: it's possible that the BIOS doesn't like it though. If you have a PS2 adapter, try putting that on00:09
israelwilldabeast: told you earlier00:09
israelwilldabeast: weird cuestion, mmm change the keyboard usb by ps2 and try to get in the setup00:09
mcphailRin: bit of both. Some of the drivers have had to be reverse engineered00:09
DinoMuffinwilldabeast: also, if you're running it through a KVM switch, it might get angry00:09
magicJwilldabeast:  it is that the bios is too old to support usb00:09
javier_DinoMuffin, but, the thing is, after installing the extension, it worked. I went then to its properties (of the extension), and make changed about the resolution that it displays some images. And then it crashed and never worked again. When I nuistall it, the changed i made in preferences are still there (I assume) and I don't get the chance to set them as they were at the beggining, because the program doesnt open00:10
Rinand also, is there a tool inside of ubuntu itself that you can use to find new drivers for your hardware?00:10
DinoMuffinjavier_: have you tried deleting the config files?00:10
DinoMuffinjavier_: they're probably in your home folder somewhere00:10
willdabeastdinomuffin, any other solutions? I don't have a ps2 cord00:10
javier_DinoMuffin, I can't find it there, that's the problem. There is no .banshee folder00:11
mcphailRin: new drivers will be loaded automatically for new hardware. Ubuntu will offer alternative drivers if necessary00:11
DinoMuffinwilldabeast: well, have you been able to access bios with that keyboard before?00:11
Rincool, so for the most part its all plug and play00:11
mcphailRin: as i said, when it works it is magic...00:11
Rinalso, what about games?  is there even a such thing as steam for linux?00:11
javier_DinoMuffin, Ah! I found it! It's fixed :) Thanks a lot!00:11
willdabeastdinomuffin, no I mean that keyboard works with my other computer, this computer it doesn't let me do anything after I enter the Boot Menu00:12
DinoMuffinjavier_:no prob :)00:12
mcphailRin: some steam games work. Steam itself runs through an application called "wine"00:12
Rinand theres an app market im assuming, correct?00:12
mcphailRin: but don't expect much major-label support for ubuntu00:12
Rindidnt figure to00:12
DinoMuffinwilldabeast: ok, i guess i didn't hear the entire problem. if it stops working after you enter bios, then it sounds like the bios version may be buggy00:13
DinoMuffinwilldabeast: or too old00:13
Rinthere needs to be though.. windows is too much of a monopoly00:13
dsirijuscould anyone help me with trackpoint (trakstyk by hp actually)? it freezes if i move it too fast (i have to move it REAL slow not to freeze)00:13
mcphailRin: there is a user-friendly "app-market" type interface00:13
israelwilldabeast: some pc dont let you use usb keyboards until de OS is running thats why you need to change for a ps2 plug00:13
DinoMuffinwilldabeast: what israel said too00:13
dsirijusit's recognized as ps2 mouse, and trackpad works just fine00:14
Rinis there a such thing as java for linux?00:14
metasansanaRin yup00:14
mcphailRin: of course00:14
metasansanaJava is multi platform00:14
willdabeastdinomuffin and israel, is there a way to fix it if the bios is too old?00:14
Rinand im assuming that means any java programs are able to be run in linux as well?00:14
alfredo72Hi. I'm having audio issues since my last upgrade, audio is choppy, at best, music sounds as if played in a phonograph! some web videos work, some don't00:14

metasansanaRin not any but most should00:14
mcphailRin: just about, yes00:14

alfredo72thanks Dino00:19
metasansanaRin: its actually straight forward00:20
metasansanalike installing a new program00:20
Rinplease and thanks for all the help00:20
metasansanaRin Virtual box allows you to install other operating systems without messing up your main one00:20
Rinoh.  cool00:20
DinoMuffinalfredo72: does it only happen when using flash? or with everything?00:21
Rinso is it running both OS's at the same time?00:21
alfredo72Dino: everything, Banshee sounds as if played through a tin can00:21
metasansanaRin think of it like you are running a guest operating system as a regular application00:21
alfredo72some videos sound ok, most don't00:21
metasansanaRin like you would Firefox or Internet explorer00:22
Rinso its an OS as a single program inside of windows?00:22
Rinand how do i set that up to be done?00:22
alfredo72I have upgraded and updated everything00:22
DinoMuffinalfredo72: and you're using pulseaudio, correct?00:22
metasansanaRin: Virtual Box is the application that you manage the Os guests from00:22
alfredo72good question Dino, how do I find that out?00:22
Rinhow do i get Virtual box?00:23
metasansanaRin: https://www.virtualbox.org/00:23

alfredo72well it's a resolution HP thought is really cool?00:58
ActionParsnipalfredo72: what video chip do you use?00:59
Oeralfredo72, what resolution exactly ?00:59
DinoMuffinalfredo72: I have to wonder now if it's actually connected through VGA, rather than DVI00:59
alfredo72that's what I'm trying to find out without shutting down the computer00:59
alfredo72how wpould I know that?01:00
ActionParsnipalfredo72: lspci | grep -i vga    what is output?01:00
DinoMuffinwell VGA will likely be a thick black cable with a blue end01:00
DinoMuffinDVI will have a white end01:00
alfredo72VGA it is01:00
haylovga has a bunch of pins01:00
DinoMuffinit might not be detecting the monitor correctly01:00

MiggsHi guys. I got myself into a spot of PPA trouble with Pidgin. I'm trying to clean it up but apt is giving me an error that I don't know how to deal with. Can someone please look at this http://pastie.org/3292911 and give me a hint?02:02
scientesMiggs, what files are in ls /etc/apt/sources.list.d/02:03
ablyssMiggs, whats a PPA02:03
ubottuA Personal Package Archive (PPA) can provide alternate software not normally available in the offical Ubuntu repositories - Looking for a PPA? See https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+ppas - WARNING: PPAs are unsupported third-party packages, and you use them at your own risk. See also !addppa02:03
Miggsscientes: morgan@lappy:~$ ls /etc/apt/sources.list.d/* | grep -i pidgin  finds nothing.02:04
MiggsThere is also no mention of pidgin in /etc/apt/sources.list02:05
pfifoubottu, thanks but wheres the $20 you owe me?02:05
ubottupfifo: I am only a bot, please don't think I'm intelligent :)02:05
ablyssMiggs, so basically your PPA wants to install something but your system does not support it02:05
scientesOK, then it is some PPA-foo, i'm not sure about how all that stuff works02:05
metasansanawow ubottu responds!02:05
MiggsThe ppa has been purged already and I can't find anywhere where that could be being referenced.02:05
ablyssMiggs, you use sudo apt-get update you should see the PPA in the list02:06
scientesMiggs, apt-get update02:06
MiggsI've already done that a bunch but I'll do it again now02:06
scientesMiggs, then do apt-get remove pidgin && apt-get install pidgin02:07
scientesor apt-get -t your-version-codename install pidgin02:07
haylomiggs put in synaptic and then deselcet pigin and go ahead and install- it will just install the dependencis02:07
MiggsNo mention of pidgin in the apt-get update output.02:07
jtannenbaumI'm on 10.04 and my monitor resolution is screwed up. I knew this because the bottom left corner of my screen can do this: http://i.imgur.com/fRtex.png02:07
jtannenbaumit's clearly cut off02:07
jtannenbaumchanging the resolution just makes it obviously messed up02:08
Miggsmorgan@lappy:~$ sudo apt-get remove pidgin leads to Package pidgin is not installed, so not removed02:08
pfifoMiggs, according to the pastebin, pidgin is trying to install a pidgin-data that is too new for it to use, so I am thinking your trying to install a non-ppa version of pidgin that is pulling in a ppa verson of pidgin-data, double check your PPA and ensure your desired package isnt named something different from just plain 'pidgin'02:08
haylomiggs it sounds like you tried to remove pigin then reinstall it?02:08
ablyssjtannenbaum, do you have reset or recalibrate button on your monitor?02:08
jtannenbaumdon't think so, it might be in the menu02:08
hayloyeah i dont think you should draw pigin from a ppa- its in almost every repo i think02:09
Miggshaylo: that's right - I used the ppa on the pidgin site then cleared that out so I could use the one in the Ubuntu repo instead.02:09
ablyssjtannenbaum, maybe restarting gdm02:09
scientesMiggs, apt-get remove pidgin && apt-get install pidgin02:09
hayloMiggs, put the name in synaptic02:09
haylothat will tell you the depends Miggs02:09
Miggsscientes: apt says pidgin is not installed so it can't remove it, then the install has the error in nthe pastie.02:09
Miggshaylo: Cheers, I'll give that a try.02:10
haylothen deselct it and install those depends will still be selected02:10
hayloits a pain but at least it gives you some options02:10
jtannenbaumablyss: I've restarted the computer, which I assume restarts gdm02:11

pfifosemeion, disregard that, if you type it and it works on the command line then rmmod isnt needed02:35
pfifosemitones, what is the script just not executing on resume?02:35
semitonesBen64: "sudo modprobe -r psmouse; sleep 2; sudo modprobe psmouse" -- if I could get it to run every resume, that would be great.02:35

evoandroidevoif u run a script dont u have to enter the password after sudo excutes before it contunes02:37
pfifosemeion, im already looking at it, when you run `sudo modprobe -r psmouse; sleep 2; sudo modprobe psmouse` does it fix your mouse?02:37

Nach0zGot a question for yall that's more technical than most of what I know about ubuntu02:38
pfifodmitry_, can you try your command once more and pastebin everything it says02:38
dmitry_I got it, it was supposed to be PATH=$PATH:$HOME/arm-2007q3/bin/02:38
Nach0zwhen I try to start up, my ubuntu refused to connect to the system bus, so I get no networking02:39
semitonespfifo: yes, it fixes the mouse. it's really handy!02:39
semitonesBen64: got it02:39
Nach0zsays that it can't connect to /var/run/dbus/system_bus_socket or something02:39
dmitry_do I need to export the PATH to save it? Will it overwrite the existing paths?02:39
pfifodmitry_, and by pastebin I mean http://fpaste.org not ctrl+v in this channel02:39
evoandroidevoor pastbin.com lol02:39
pfifosemitones, then perhaps your forgot to chmod 0755 the file?02:39
javier_Hi! I installed coverflow extension for banshee and then changed its options (selected more resolution for some images it displays). After that, banshee crashed , and I can only make it work if I uninstall the extension, that I still would like to use. I believe the problem are those settings I made in coverflow extension, that persist after uninstalling and reinstalling it. Is there a way to reset those properties manually>? Thanks!02:40
evoandroidevooh forgot the e always do that02:40
DinoMuffinNach0z: so, how do you get it connected afterwards?02:40
Nach0zDinoMuffin: I don't. it never connects02:40

dagerikLABcrab: It was not automatically mounted. You have to mount it manually.03:05
pfifoLABcrab, does the 4gb stick work when you install it by itself?03:05
LABcrabdagerik: Really?03:05
LABcrabpfifo: Don't feel like trying.03:06
LABcrabNot yet.03:06
LABcrabNot tonight.03:06
pfifoLABcrab, well i can tell you for sure, your not allowed to mix memory like that03:06
LABcrabSays who?03:06
pfifoLABcrab, dual channel memory doesnt work that way03:07
LABcrabPlus i have the other problem where if i put my mouse in the lower right corner, it gets trapped.03:07
LABcrabpfifo: So i have to put 8 GB and that's it?  What do i do with the 2 GB + 2 GB that comes with the laptop?03:07
evoandroidevosell it03:07
dagerikLABcrab: Nevermnd my comment. I though you were mounting usb sticks03:07
pfifoLABcrab, the memory needs to be the same, 2, 2+2, 4, 4+403:07
evoandroidevokeep it for just in case03:07
DinoMuffinLirth: has it ever crashed like this before with any other program?03:08
pfifoLABcrab, its also possible your board doesnt support 4gb sticks, and the most you can have is 2+203:08
LirthDinoMuffin: Only with the Roboform extension right after turn my computer on and only in Ubuntu.03:08
LABcrabpfifo: but that's not fair, another computer has 1 GB + ½ GB of RAM DDR1.03:08
LABcrabpfifo: Up to 8GB according to Crucial.03:08
DinoMuffinLirth: how many times, do you think?03:09
pfifoLABcrab, that was before dual channel architectures03:09
LABcrabWell, darn.  Gotta pay another $25.03:09
LABcrabWhy is dual channel better?03:09
pfifoLABcrab, not reall, use only the 4 stick for now03:09
LirthDinoMuffin: I don't turn my computer off often, but it happens every time as I can remember.03:09
pfifoLABcrab, twice as fast03:09
LABcrabpfifo: Then i'm not ahead compared to 2 GB + 2 GB i had before!03:10
LABcrabi get 0 GB of new memory!03:10
pfifoLABcrab, the 2+2 will be faster then the 4 alone03:10

themaster_I need to launch a flash policy daemon on boot so it can run along my IRC server03:14
themaster_I have no idea how to start..03:15
xanguaLirth: the linux kernel03:15
DinoMuffinLirth: kernel panic is the equivilant of a windows BSOD, basically03:15
pfifoLABcrab, I suggest you mail the 2 2GB to me.03:15
DinoMuffinLirth: means something pretty bad happened and it can no longer run03:15
LABcrabpfifo: As a donation?03:15
evoandroidevoLABcrab u could sell them or keep them in case ur ram goes bad better safe than sorry03:16
scientesDinoMuffin, he is just seeing informational messages, probably on boot03:16
DinoMuffinLirth: when it happens, either the computer completely freeses and nothing happens, or it goes to a terminal screen that gives you a stack trace03:16
scientesLirth, to see kernel information, largely about hardware, type dmesg03:16
LABcrabevoandroidevo: Never had a RAM problem for almost four years on my older laptop, but maybe.03:16
evoandroidevothe computer im on now the ram goes out easily but its not mine so idc03:17
pfifoLABcrab, also, intel made memory like this03:17
DinoMuffinif it's a software error, as in you can still use your computer after the crash, it will likely be in your syslog file, rather than dmesg03:17
LABcrabWhat about my mouse being "trapped" at the bottom right, and i have to jig it out to get it out?03:17
pfifoLABcrab, I would keep the sticks, you might obtain a craptastic used box in the future that could use them03:18
DinoMuffinLirth: sorry if that's confusing, but if it's a kernel panic, you cannot use your computer until you manually restart it again03:18
LABcrabi guess.  They're only worth $12.50 a piece anyway, if you consider 4 GB = $25.03:18
LABcrabBut the mouse problem is bugging me.  Fix please?03:18
LirthDinoMuffin: I don't think it's that. It crashes and takes me to the log in screen, but I don't have to restart.03:18
Nach0zDinoMuffin: in the time that my ubuntu's been offline... I just did sudo apt-get update... 579 packages to be updated :| almost 600 megs03:19

Guest32940@Labcrap are you using a vm03:22
MrKeunerscientes, just notices, nut don't understand if I need de_DE.utf would still LANG=C work?03:22
LirthDinoMuffin: I found it. Should I paste the whole thing?03:22

DinoMuffinLirth: yeah03:22
pfifolol labcrap03:22
scientesMrKeuner, LANG=C gives you english, for 99.9% percent of packages, as most packages are written in english03:23
LABcrabGuest21792: one, it's "crab", two, i use VirtualBox once in a while, but happens with or without VBox.03:23

cyclicfluxhowever, this appears to still intermittently happen, its kind of sporadic, and random, but has a tendency of coming in bursts03:24
DinoMuffinLirth: if you're at a terminal, run "gedit Xorg.0.log.old"03:24
DinoMuffinLirth: otherwise right click and open it with gedit03:24
cyclicfluxthemaster, I would think it would be something either in grub, or init-scripts03:24
dr_willisthemaster_:  /etc/rc.local is one way03:25
LirthDinoMuffin: Ok, it is at http://pastebin.com/KATsrmfr03:25
pfifoMrKeuner, yes if your shell is /ben/bash on the remote machine03:25
themaster_dr_willis how would I do it with that?03:25
LABcrabscientes: Why does this happen?  One of my only Ubuntu problems.03:26
DinoMuffinLirth: thanks03:26
cyclicfluxthemaster, that would def. work, or you could source a script in your xsession. But it is important to remember what run-level you want it to occur on.03:26
dr_willisthemaster_:  edit the file. its a script03:26
themaster_well it is a flashpolicy daemon03:26
cyclicfluxIs anyone familiar with this happening with the hibernate/etc... of the monitor??? I am beginning to think that I am just going to have to recompile the damn kernel to get rid of the excess fat.03:26
dr_willisthemaster_:  x gui app?03:27
MrKeunerpfifo, what about cron running as your user? can it have the LANG variable when you put it in .profile?03:27
themaster_No, not GUI its all terminal ubuntu server dr_willis03:27
dr_willisthemaster_:  try rc.local then03:27
DinoMuffinLirth: one more question, did this just start happening recently?03:27
pfifoMrKeuner, cron uses a blank enviroment, you need to take care to setup things correctly in cron03:27
themaster_dr_willis, it starts like ./flashpolicyd.rb03:27
North_ihavnoth:  Are you Korean?03:27
cyclicflux I am having some kind of strange issue with regard to my monitor intermittently going to sleep while I am using my computer. It goes to sleep fine when it is left, however, when I am using it, it appears that it intermittently goes to sleep. I changed my graphics settings to kms for my ati-5770, and blacklisted the appropriate modules in '/etc/modprobe.d/', as well as updated the 'GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT', with the 'radeon.03:28
cyclicfluxmodeset=1', and then ran 'update-grub'. Does anyone know what else it could be?03:28
MrKeunerpfifo, ah OK, always thought my scripts not running well in cron was due to .bashrc .profile .bash_login confusion03:28
dr_willisthemaster_:  use the full path and end it with &  in rc.local03:28
DinoMuffincyclicflux: does it only happen under ubuntu?03:29
LirthDinoMuffin: I just started with Linux after Christmas this year, and I didn't start using the Roboform Extension until about a week or two afterwards. I really started noticing it after I experienced it a few times which was last weekish. So it's been going on for almost the entire time.03:29
DinoMuffinLirth: ok03:30
evandroany asterisk users?03:30
scientesevandro, #asterisk03:30
evandroI use freepbx03:31
_pr0t0type_hey guys, I put some old ppa repository that no longer works (url is dead), I deleted it from my /ect/apt/sources.list, however every time I run 'sudo apt-get update' the upgrade complains about errors from the already deleted deb ppa.  Is there anyway to fix this?03:31
evandroI just upgraded from 2.9 to 2.10 and I have problem with IRV03:31
DinoMuffinLirth: well it's definitely crashing the X server, and it's not an unknown problem03:32
LirthDinoMuffin: Is that good or bad?03:32
cyclicfluxDinoMuffin, well aside from windows and ubuntu, I have had archlinux on here, however, not long enough to see it happen. It starts up, and then I did the kms setting and then it stopped for like a few weeks03:33
cyclicfluxDinoMuffin, I thought maybe it could have been something in xorg setup. However, ubuntu's is very different than what I am used to with i.e. gentoo, archlinux, slax etc...03:34
DinoMuffinLirth: it's good, it'll give me a better idea of how to approach the issue03:34
cyclicfluxDinoMuffin, I checked the X.org.0.log, and there were no errors, and xsession-errors(I am not that familiar with what to look for in this), as well as the x-configuration03:35
DinoMuffinLirth: lemme ask you, are you set on using chrome as your web browser?03:35
DinoMuffincyclicflux: well what I was asking is weather or not your monitor is dying03:36
cyclicfluxDinoMuffin, I thought it was the monitor however, it doesn't happen on Windows.03:36
LirthDinoMuffin: Does this mean chrome is the cause?03:36
cyclicfluxDinoMuffin, It could very well be(its only a year old)03:36
DinoMuffinLirth: it looks like there are known conflicts with roboform and chrome on all operating systems03:36
DinoMuffinIt might not be an issue on firefox03:36
LirthDinoMuffin: That's strange. I haven't noticed it on windows 7 on this laptop or on XP at school.03:37
DinoMuffincyclicflux: well, if the backlight is dying, the monitor will still have a green light03:37
troy-i have 11.10 installed - how can i encrypt the entire fs?03:37
DinoMuffinLirth: well, those computers probably aren't using the same version of chrome03:37
cyclicfluxDinoMuffin, greenlight? And is there a way to check?03:38
LirthDinoMuffin: I just updated it. School doesn't preinstall chrome so I do it myself and it's the most recent version.03:38
DinoMuffincyclicflux: if it doesn't have a glowing power button, next time it blanks out, hold a flashlight to the monitor03:38
DinoMuffincyclicflux: if there's still a picture, your backlight or controller is dying03:39
DinoMuffincyclicflux: if there's no picture at all, it just lost signal03:39
cyclicfluxDinoMuffin, its stating it has lost signal03:39
DinoMuffinLirth: I'm not sure how it is for Chrome, but for firefox, it lags behind the windows versions03:40
DinoMuffincyclicflux: ok, nevermind then03:40
cyclicfluxDinoMuffin, it says something like going into standby-mode. Do you think its something with the acpi/power-mgmt(thats included in ubuntu) for laptops, or pm-utils that is causing it?03:40
LABcrabDid i miss anything regarding how to fix the mouse?03:40
DinoMuffincyclicflux: only two things I can think of that would shutdown the monitor are power settings and the screensaver program03:40
LirthDinoMuffin: Do you have any idea (no matter how unlikely) why it works for windows but not Ubuntu for me?03:41
cyclicfluxDinoMuffin, would you like me to pastebin one of my logs for you to see??03:42
DinoMuffinLirth: it's hard to be exactly sure without more information. But there could be an issue between the versions, there could be some rendering issue or memory access violation03:42
DinoMuffincyclicflux: sure03:43
LirthDinoMuffin: You said that it lags behind the versions. Does this mean that I have to be patient when I'm logging in and let it load?03:43
DinoMuffinLirth: usually things don't take down the Xserver though03:43
cyclicfluxDinoMuffin, which one would you like to see xsessionerrors?? or syslog-ng??03:44
DinoMuffinLirth: did you say before that it only crashes once and then works fine afterwards?03:44
H264hey, I have a .deb where the dependency is already met (I compiled and installed it myself), how do I tell dpkg that this dependency is met?03:44
LirthDInoMuffin: Correct. It takes me to the log in screen. Then I log in and I can open Chrome, do the same thing, and it works fine.03:44
DinoMuffincyclicflux: lemme ask, does it happen when you're typing? Or just when you leave it alone for a few seconds?03:45
MrKeunerhi, how can I change the LANG that sudo uses?03:45
DinoMuffinLirth: that is a bit odd03:45
LirthDinoMuffin: Exactly!03:46
MrKeunerhi, how can I change the LANG that sudo uses? added de_DE.utf8 to /root/.profile but did not work03:46
DinoMuffinLirth: lol sorry, it's a pretty complex problem03:46
cyclicfluxDinoMuffin, it happens most of the time when I am typing, and maybe once when I leave it alone. However, it always happens when I am using the computer(as little as once a week, or as much as 8x's a day). Its been going on for like a few weeks or so03:47
DinoMuffincyclicflux: but it wakes up afterwards right?03:47
DinoMuffinLirth: it's almost acting like there is some driver issue03:48
DinoMuffinLirth: but that's not something that normally clears up by itself03:48
cyclicfluxDinoMuffin, yes, if it is in its genuine sleep/hibernation(when I've left the computer). However, when using the PC, and it does it doesn't wake up. Nothing I have tried can wake it, I even tried 'setterm' command from archlinux.org and it didn't work03:48
LABcrabNobody has a solution for mouse stuck in lower right corner?  10 minutes before i leave.03:49
Nach0zLABcrab: I'm assuming you've tried rebooting?03:49
DinoMuffincyclicflux: that's bizzare too03:49
DinoMuffincyclicflux: almost like its not seeing the interrupt03:50
DinoMuffinman you people and your weird problems today03:50
DinoMuffin1 sec03:50
cyclicfluxDinoMuffin, even though the monitor disconnects like its going to sleep, it really isn't due to the fact its not waking up.03:50
unnamed12593Could someone point me in the right direction here, I'm trying to figure out what channel I should ask a question regarding creating and mounting volumes using dmsetup on ubuntu.  #lvm is completely silent03:50
LirthDinoMuffin: Thanks for all the help. Honestly, I have no idea why nice people sit in the chat rooms to help out people like me. I really appreciate it though.03:51
cyclicfluxDinoMuffin, in one of the xsession-error logs, I saw that the gnome-settings-daemon stated it lost connection with the display or screen(or something like that), due to something else using it. However, it didn't disclose what else could be using it.03:51
LABcrabNach0z: for the mouse?  Does nothing.03:51
DinoMuffinLirth: no problem :). I enjoy doign it03:52
Nach0zLABcrab: so you HAVE rebooted then. If that didn't help, then I don't know. sounds like either A. a bad driver or B. you got some broke hardware03:52
cyclicfluxDinoMuffin, hahahahahaha I have never had this happen before03:52
DinoMuffinLirth: sometiems these problems get really complicated however03:52
LABcrabNach0z: will test it on another machine, but yeah, pretty sure it's driver.03:53
Nach0zLABcrab: sorry I can't help more03:53
semitonesI'd like to run a script on "resume" -- how can I do that?03:53
LirthDinoMuffin: Takes a lot of focus and a lot of time. Wish I had either.03:54
DinoMuffincyclicflux: if it happens again, try pressing ctrl + alt + f1 to enter single user mode03:54
semitonesI have a command I run every time I resume from sleep. How can I make it a script that runs automatically?03:54
cyclicfluxDinoMuffin, didn't work, hahahahaha03:54
DinoMuffincyclicflux: :|03:54
cyclicfluxDinoMuffin, what could take the connection from gnome-settings-daemon?03:55
dagerikUbuntu is not detecting my external 24' screen's highest resolution. I tried adding the 1920x1080 resolution using xrandr like this: http://folk.ntnu.no/dageriv/images/2012-02-01_04.50.38.png But it "Failed to change the screen configuration!". Suggestions?03:55
DinoMuffinLirth: i'd reccomend trying it under firefox03:55
DinoMuffinoh he left03:55
cyclicfluxDinoMuffin, should I maybe re-compile the kernel? Eliminate all modules and make it monolithic?03:55
DinoMuffincyclicflux: sorry, i don't remember if i asked, but is this a recent thing that has started happening?03:56
Jordan_Ucyclicflux: Making your kernel image more monolithic isn't going to help anything.03:57
cyclicfluxdinomuffin, yes, and I know my problem sucks, I would rather have a different one as well!!03:57
DinoMuffincyclicflux: lol03:57
cyclicfluxdinomuffin, hahahahaha03:57
cyclicfluxJordan_U, why wouldn't it?03:57
DinoMuffincyclicflux: well, if its something that just started happening recently...03:58
Jordan_Ucyclicflux: Becuase it's the same code, with the same policy, either way. Why would it?03:58
DinoMuffincyclicflux: i know the kernel was updated a few days ago03:58
BarblahHi all.  I just upgraded a 10.04.3 machine and got a firefox9 upgrade.  is firefox 3.6 deprecated on 10.4.3?03:59
Barblahand is there anyway to downgrade to 3.6.x?03:59
cyclicfluxJordan_U, to stream-line it, minimize excess code, as well as load-time, which not only would boost performance it would minimize the likelihood for error, which if my history serves me right is the reason they initially created the monolithic kernel for Multix03:59
Nach0zBarblah: I don't think there's ANY way to get firefox 3.6 on ubuntu anymore. that's olllld.04:00
floorlavaI have no forward-back icons in epiphany, or power button on GDM. What icon pack am I missing?04:00
DinoMuffincyclicflux: well, the fact that single user mode isn't overriding the blank tells me it's gotta be a kernel or driver issue04:00
cyclicfluxDinoMuffin, you want me to pastebin the dmesg log04:00
DinoMuffincyclicflux: what's your graphics adapter?04:00
DinoMuffincyclicflux: sure04:00
cyclicfluxdinomuffin, ati577004:00
cyclicfluxdinomuffin, juniper I believe04:01
gopiballava"The attempt to mount a file system with type swap in SCSI3 (0,0,0), partition #6 (sdb) at none failed"04:01
LABcrabGood night y'all and thanks!04:01
gopiballavaWhy is it trying to set up swap on sdb? Swap is supposed to be sda204:01
Jordan_Ucyclicflux: Building modules into the kernel doesn't actually make the code more monolithic. Reducing the modules, and thus code, that are loaded *might* make a difference, but I very much doubt it. Most bugs are in the logic of the code interaction with hardware. Neither of those is going to change by building your module into the kernel.04:02
righteousRatanyone know how to launch a desktop gui over x1104:02
Jordan_Ucyclicflux: *logic of the code or interaction with hardware.04:02
DinoMuffinthe ati driver might also be buggy now04:03
gopiballavaIt just hangs at this point. I've tried a few times.04:03
righteousRative seen someone do ssh'd into centos with some command. i think it had nautilus and gnome in the command name but i cant recall at the moment04:03
BarblahrighteousRat: you mean X forwarding?  as in, ssh -YCc blowfish user@host xeyes04:03
righteousRathmm let me rephrase my question. anyone know how to launch the desktop gui through ssh -X user@domain04:03
DinoMuffintry starting the file browser when in the ssh session04:04
righteousRatBarblah:  theres a command you type in the terminal you ssh'd into and it launches a desktop window04:04

gopiballavaI've never had much trouble with Linux installers, *especially* not just randomly hanging with silly error messages like this.04:06
gopiballavaAny suggestions for a less broken installer? CLI installer?04:08
* Gnea frowns at the fact that the flashplugin-installer for 11.04 doesn't install anything that works on amd64 with chromium04:09
cyclicfluxJordan_U, the basis for my statement was due to the fact that there are unnecessary modules with the ubuntu install things for laptop power-mgmt/etc, and although the modules are blacklisted, and the kernel has the right modules, there could still be memory mismanagement from other miscellaneous modules that didn't get filtered in the kernel's logic. Many times I would agree, however, this problem is something that I have tried04:09
cyclicflux many things to solve and yet it hasn't worked04:09
gopiballavaTold it not to use swap. Still doing it.04:09
gopiballavabloody hell.04:09
cyclicfluxJordan_U, while other very lean distros i.e. gentoo/archlinux that are fully-customizable and everything is compiled on system I have never had this problem with. Plus, the ubuntu packages have a tendency of lagging a bit with regard to versions of the code04:10
cyclicfluxDinoMuffin, what do you think. I will gladly pastebin my dmesg log or any other log04:11
DinoMuffindmesg would be a good start04:11
gopiballavaWhat Linux distribution should I switch to? Cause I don't have the patience to deal with installers that hang like this.04:11

cyclicfluxDinoMuffin, I checked X.org's site for the ati-5770 support and it is fully supported for KMS, and benchmarks from phoronix state it is undoubtedly faster. The one semi-weird thing I think is that of the connector I am using and that is I believe a parallel port to vga connector(this came with the computer)04:14
ben_zenDinoMuffin: sort of, I guess.04:14
DinoMuffinJ7: go to your alsamixer and check the mic level04:14
ben_zen(I'm trying to figure out if I've got a bad memory slot or bad firmware, and this may be the solution.)04:14

DinoMuffinI can link you to further specs if you'd like04:19
ben_zenDinoMuffin: yeah, definitely. I just want to be sure that's what's up04:20
DinoMuffinI don't remember if a livecd retains that limit or not, but it would make sense given what youv'e said04:20

Guest12237if i can somehow encrypt my files after the installation proccess04:37

sqeeKEYDoes anyone know how to use fbsplash?04:53
noybHello.  I'm using Ubuntu 11.10.  When I tried to mount a cd-rom using gmount I got the little gmount-iso window.  It asks for the "image file (.iso).  No matter what I try it seems impossible to mount.  I've also tried using the command line.  I've looked online for a gmount tutorial.  The only ones I've found assume that you know how to figure out what the .iso file is on the cd-rom you are trying to mount.  I am thoroughly confused.  Any idea04:55
redscareis there anything that I can do to bind keys to window actions04:55
noybs, anybody.  Thanks in advance from a lost noob.04:55
Ben64noyb: i'm confused, are you trying to mount a cd or an iso04:56
DinoMuffinnoyb: what command did you try?04:56
rick__its coded like the book says04:56
rick__and it has always worked04:57
noybHello, Ben64... I'm trying to mount a cd-rom for my d-link dir-615 router.04:57
cheapieI accidentaly melted my keyboard. Can somebody suggest a good virtual keyboard?04:57
Ben64noyb: you don't need a cd for a router04:57
harrisi want to make a bootable USB linux that actually works04:58
pedahzurDoes anyone know why Chromium Browser is at v16 for i386 but only v14 for AMD64?04:58
pedahzurharris: unetbootin04:58
dagerikharris: Use startup disk creator or some other tool for creating startupdisks. One such other program is unetbootin04:59
DinoMuffinharris: what drive are you using?04:59
noybBen64... originally, I set up the router with the cd-rom... then forgot my password... I want to reset & reinstall the software... to do that I assume that I will need to use the cd-rom... just like last time.  Yes?  No?04:59
cheapieHello? Anybody?04:59
Ben64noyb: you can reset the router with the button on the back of it04:59
DinoMuffinresetting the router doesn't erase the firmware05:00
Ben64noyb: also, the software on the cd is unnecessary and probably windows only05:00
goddardi can't click on the flash "Allow" button05:00
goddardit does nothing05:00
LordKowbut resetting a router does reset the settings. beyond that there is not much else for a router reset button to reset.05:00
DinoMuffincheapie: why not buy a new keyboard?05:00
gandhijeehey is there away to get a list of the recently installed packages, and what they mighthave changed?05:01
goddardanyone know how i can click it?05:01
noybthanks, DinoMuffin...  understood LordKow...  be all that as it may... the real question is how to mount the cd-rom...05:01
harrisi used UNETbootin05:02
noybthat is my primary area of confusion... or maybe not :-)05:02
buntuCan I use a capture card in ubuntu without mythtv?05:02
harrisbut now everytime i try to boot into the USB it gets stuck on the loadign screen05:02
Ben64noyb: the software on the cd will most likely not work in ubuntu05:02
cheapieDinoMuffin: I don't think my parents will take me to the store right now. I'm supposed to be sleeping...05:03
harrisi keep getting stuck here: http://www.liberiangeek.net/wp-content/uploads/2011/01/Install-Ubuntu-.04-Natty-Narwhal-via-USB_AB0F/natty_unethbootin_3.png05:03
LordKownoyb, no router should require software to be setup. so, I would maybe go to the router manufacturer's website and find the setup instructions there. having said that, ubuntu should still be able to mount the cd whether it can run the software or not.05:03
DinoMuffincheapie: i don't know of any that work *well*, but there are a few in the ubuntu package manager05:03
noybhmmm... on the envelope it says "for mac and linux users please use the documentation on the cd located in the 'docs' folder...05:03
DinoMuffinnoyb: why do you need the cd in the first place?05:03
LordKowrouter or dsl modem?05:04
harrisis LUBUNTU compatible with unetbootin?05:04
DinoMuffinnoyb: I can't think of why ubuntu would need extra software to use or access a router05:05
cheapieDinoMuffin: OK. I'll try taking it apart and pressing the rubber domes.05:05
noybDinoMuffin... because I can't get into my router to tweak it because I forgot my password & the only way to get in is to start over with a fresh install which can only be accomplished with the cd... unless I'm more of a noob than I thought.05:05
Ben64noyb: just hold down the reset button on the back of the router for about 30 seconds05:05
LordKowharris, you might have better luck asking in #lubuntu05:06
DinoMuffinnoyb: usually you can hold the reset button down for 10 seconds and it will reset it to factoy defaults05:06
DinoMuffinnoyb: then look up the model of your router and find the default password05:06
DinoMuffinnoyb: it's usually some combination of admin and password05:06
urlin2uharris, should be but there are other usb loader look at pendrivelinux05:07
harrisok, should my drive be FAT32 or NTFS? or it does not matter?05:07
urlin2uharris, fat3205:07
harrishow can i see what my drive is right now?05:07
harrisfrom windows 705:08
harrisoh nevermind, it is fat32 alread05:08
urlin2uharris, in the disk utility  in ubuntu or install gparted it is a partitioner as well05:08
harrisshould i format it and try again with pendrivelinux? i already made one with unetbootin05:08
ubuntunewbieHello users , may i know how to access the files located in ubuntu ..those files are on the same partition in which ubuntu has been installed... did wubi...05:08
urlin2uharris, in ubuntu you can right click the thumb icon and format as well.05:08
noybok... but my problem remains the same... not the router... but how do I mount the cd... as I said, I tried using gmount as well as the command line... until I figure that out everything else is secondary... maybe I didn't explain myself clearly enough at first... it's been a l-o-n-g day.05:09
dageriknoyb: check out the mount commanad05:09
noybtried that05:09
DinoMuffinnoyb: you can mount a cd rom drive with: "sudo mkdir /media/cd ; sudo mount /dev/<cd drive> /media/cd"05:09
DinoMuffin<cd drive> being the block device for the drive. ususally sr005:09
harrishttp://www.pendrivelinux.com which one do i get?05:09
DinoMuffinunmount with "sudo umount /media/cd"05:10
noybI'll give it a try DinoMuffin... brb05:12

saikatcan anyone tell me how to set 1200x800 resolution in ubuntu 10.0405:19
saikatusing xrandr05:20
noybDinoMuffin... typed in both items as per your suggestion... although the command line says /media/cd file exists. when i try to access it then it says it can't find /dev/sr0/media/cd in /etc/fstab or05:20
noybDinoMuffin... /etc/fstab or /etc/mtab05:20
urlin2uharris, I use this one the page is in french if you have your flash block turned off it will let you do a google translate, read carefully I suspect you may have problems, but works you just have to know how to load it. AND use gparted to format the thumb to fat32, http://www.pendrivelinux.com/multiboot-create-a-multiboot-usb-from-linux/05:21
noybmaybe I should go back to using an abacus... :-)05:21
DinoMuffinnoyb: type lsblk05:21
urlin2uharris, I guess it has a download from there now so follow the directions05:22
DinoMuffinit will show what the block device is fior your cd05:22
DinoMuffinprobably at the end05:22
noybok... checking05:23
harrispendrivelinux worked!05:23

MiggsQuick check with you guys - should a Core 2 Duo 2.4GHz/4GB/Nvidia m8400GS laptop be laggy with Ubuntu 11.10 in either Unity or Gnome Shell? I don't think it should be but I'm having the damnedest time working out the problem.05:25

__vincentis ubuntu currently the FASTEST distro?05:26
Miggsxangua: which live cd? I've got 11.10 on here now and it's laggy and often only does partial screen updates for several seconds.05:27

xangua!ot | __vincent05:27
ubottu__vincent: #ubuntu is the Ubuntu support channel, for all Ubuntu-related support questions. Please use #ubuntu-offtopic for other topics (though our !guidelines apply there too). Thanks!05:27
aeon-ltd__vincent: depends on how much you know and how much spare time you've got05:27
__vincentyou cant compile kernel in ubuntu?05:28
aeon-ltd__vincent: you can05:28
xanguayou can also try ##linux for a linux general discussion __vincent , but Lubuntu is the lighter flavor of ubuntu, uses lxde destop and few resources05:28

__vincenti cant write to that channel05:35
__vincentwhat do you think of this article http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=article&item=ubuntu_arch_faster&num=105:35
DinoMuffinit should look exactly like this: sudo mount /dev/sr0 /media/cd05:35
urlin2usqeeKEY, where you getting it from?05:36

sartanLordKow: aced it, that was exactly what i was looking for. thanks mate05:39
acerimmerdagerik: yes.05:39

DinoMuffinthat's fine05:40
DinoMuffinnoyb: go to /media/cd in your file browser and the files will be there05:40
sqeeKEYurlin2u, I have not got it yet, but just doing some research. I would like to set a background image for the console, I do not use X05:40

urlin2usqeeKEY, not in the ubuntu repos not really supported here per say, does not mean nobody will help but I would not hold my breath.05:41
urlin2usqeeKEY, I think this is it not sure really. http://www.liberiangeek.net/2010/07/connect-ubuntu-10-04-lucid-lynx-remote-desktop-windows-machines/05:42

Ben64thetinyjesus: what support05:47
thetinyjesusi can mount my iphone 4s, but when I transfer it says it's successful but the songs don't show up05:47
urlin2usqeeKEY, burg is awhole bootloader though just to get a image to choose from you would want to know how to load the mbr.05:47
Zandow-Xi phone sucks!!!05:47
sqeeKEYurlin2u: burg looks cool05:47
Zandow-Xburg is cool XD05:48
thetinyjesusactually it does not suck it is nice to have a phone that never crashes or needs to be rebooted kinda like linux on a pc05:48
urlin2uI have like 5 OS right now on my HD so burg looks nicer with all those kernel lines05:48

goddardanyone used luckyBackup?05:59
urlin2ugoddard, I like grsync better for a gui back up using rsync.06:00
almoxarifesherif: flash is an installed app, what ever you use to install apps should allow you to look for 'flash', i use synaptic, so i would look for 'flash' in the 'installed' tab, i would see that i installed the official adobe flash for amd6406:01
urlin2ugoddard, you want a full OS backup?06:01
goddardurlin2u: complete as possible would be nice but mostly just configuration settings and home information06:02
goddardurlin2u: i would like the option though so i can make a complete back up at times but then switch to a simple one later06:02
urlin2ugoddard, I just use grsync for home and clonezilla for the whole OS.06:02
sherifalmoxarife its adobe flash plugin for mozilla maybe thats y it doesnt work well with chromium06:02
almoxarifegoddard: when you are done fiddling with all the various methods look at 'deja-dup', its too simple and allows for restoring via nautilus files/folders06:03
goddardurlin2u: ahh nice those look good06:04
goddardanyone else have problems with flash that needs you to click their warning menu ? i can't click on the flash "Allow" button06:04
almoxarifesherif: no, cant be, i use chromium, and adobe flash 64, then again 'fast' is relative, i dont know what you are seeing that is 'slow'06:04

Jimu_LordKow: heh, yep06:15
sherifalmoxarife i dont think so its 1 mega and i told u it works very fine on windows06:15
bullgard4almoxarife: i asked at the outset: "Who is the user of »User ID 324821 « in http://www.identi.ca/ubuntudev?" Now you are telling me "google is a power tool." Is that all you are able to answer this question? I know Goggle well, and this does not answer my question at the outset.06:15
scriptwarlockThe problem is the login screen is divided into two showing a onscreen keyboard like thing in the left side and the same magnified in the other side06:16
almoxarifesherif: windows then sounds like the ticket, i am telling you now06:16
scriptwarlockanyone knows how to sort this out?: The problem is the login screen is divided into two showing a onscreen keyboard like thing in the left side and the same magnified in the other side06:17
Jimu_scriptwarlock: this is on a desktop computer?06:17
scriptwarlockJimu_: yes06:17
idarksidehow can i install sslv2 on ubuntu please06:17
sherifalmoxarife wut ticket?06:17
Ben64you can install flash from adobe.com06:17
Jimu_scriptwarlock: and this happened on a new install, or maybe a reboot after an ill-conceived config change?06:17
scriptwarlockJimu_:  can't launch safe mode can't type any letters nothing but a magnifier06:17
scriptwarlockJimu_:  not fresh install06:18
scriptwarlockJimu_:  kids playing the login screen, darn06:18
Ben64have you tried turning it off and then on again?06:19
scriptwarlockJimu_:  but i have now fired the live cd but i need to locate the on screen keyboard to disable, you have idea where to hunt the config?06:19
idarkside_m2crypto is calling sslv2qq in ubuntu n i need to fix it plz06:19
Jimu_scriptwarlock: ugh, that's the worst. The right side of the screen is a magnified view of the left side? does it move? i don't know anything about it, but this is gathering details06:20
scriptwarlockJimu_:  yeah worst than i think of, yes magnified but it's black so i'm dead blind to the login screen.06:20
Jimu_sounds like two different accessibility features at once - a zoom feature and the virtual keyboard feature. I'd start by looking up how to turn on and off those features on the login. The kids didn't actually log in, right? so it must be settings you can make from the login?06:22
scriptwarlockJimu_:  yeah06:23
urlin2uscriptwarlock, your going to have to change your nic now. :D06:24
scriptwarlockJimu_:  the only remedy i think was to hunt down the conf file via live cd heres the command to disable but i have no clue where to find this file "sudo -u gdm gconftool-2 /desktop/gnome/applications/at/screen_magnifier_enabled --type bool --set false"06:24
scriptwarlockurlin2u: why?06:24
Jimu_scriptwarlock: looks like something called orca is involved with both accessibility features06:25
urlin2uscriptwarlock, a nic like that i am surprised your even asking, just ribbing yiu.06:25
scriptwarlockurlin2u: heheh06:25
urlin2uorca is what I thought to06:25

acerimmeridarkside: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/8206546/undefined-symbol-sslv2-method06:27
acerimmeridarkside: The Ubuntu people build OpenSSL without SSLv2 support because the protocol has known security issues. So that's why you can't find SSLv2_method in their library even though you can find it when you compile the library yourself.06:28

eigarit seems like the problem not lays with the HW but how pulseaudio works. The philosophy of mplayer is very different from the one in pulseaudio. mplayer opens a sink with pulseaudio and deliver part by part to pulseaudio. When the file end mplayer stops delivering data (obviously) but pulseaudio keeps looking for data to see if there's any more coming.07:43

pnormanamd64? ubuntu homepage > download > ubuntu server, select 64 bit version08:09
andynhey, we need a "lite" version of ubuntu for raspberry pi :P08:09
pnormanactually, by default, the 64 bit version is selected08:09
Ben64ubuntu is too heavy for pi08:10
hydrox24pnorman: you're right.08:10
iToastpnorman, Thats the confusion :P08:10
hydrox24iToast: listen to pnorman :)08:10
iToastit states nothing about amd64...08:10

iToastben64 windows 8 will run on arm.08:11
Ben64not on pi08:11
pnormanI think saying amd64 would confuse people more than 64-bit. most people wouldn't get that intel 64-bit CPUs are also amd6408:11
iToastSomeone will get it to run smoothly.08:11
nc__hydrox24: Yep, any clues? Should i try installing samba4?08:12
hydrox24nc__: I am assuming you just want to share files on a windows network, yes?08:12
nc__hydrox24: actually just between lubuntu and os x lion :o08:12
hydrox24nc__: I share files over a network with samba and I have never used the actual "samba" command08:13

coolstar-ipodiToast: Unity is too heavy08:14
hydrox24nc__: can you try using the inbuilt sharing? unless you need careful control over permissions etc, just right click the folder you want to share, go to the sharing tab and go from there08:14
iToastcoolstar-ipod, who cares? cut it.08:14
coolstar-ipodIt lags on my system with dual core CPU and 3GB RAm08:15
iToastwe don't need unity...08:15

Ben64i'd rather use something designed better for the rpi08:15

ServerSagerick__: Did you download a debian/ubuntu version of aurora?08:28
rick__i just clicked the download button08:28
ServerSageThen you'll just get a tar.bz2 file.  Correct?08:29
TheYsNoihi...new boot here...08:30
ServerSagerick__: In order to use it you need to extract it.  When you download it from their site they give you a tar.bz2 file.  You can either double click on that an your GUI will probably extract it for you, leaving you with an executable, or you can extract it on the command line.08:31

jattwhy do you want to zip 60 gigs! rotfl09:26
varikonniemiso i can archive it handy in one file09:26
JadedJacobVarazir: What compression setting did you use? What is your CPU? How much RAM do you have?09:26
LunatyKauronandace is that smart09:27
jattbetter those 60 gigs are text files09:27
varikonniemidunno about compression, it does not let me choose09:27
jattif not09:27
varikonniemic2d 3.1ghz, 4ggs ram09:27
jattyou are wasting your time09:27
varikonniemicpu usage 10%09:27
JadedJacobYeah like what jatt: Unless they are text files or BMP's(haha) you're wasting your time09:28
=== LunatyK is now known as Eternal
JadedJacob*like what jatt said i mean09:28
varikonniemithe point is not to compress them but to just have one file to archive09:28
=== Eternal is now known as LunatyK
jattthen don't compress them09:28
jattarchive them09:28
icerootvarikonniemi: tar09:28
jattwith tar for example09:28
varikonniemibut there is clearly something wrong here09:28
=== LunatyK is now known as DJ_Eternal
varikonniemii read tar is really bad for this, since it has no index09:28
jattyeah PEBKAC09:28
hayloi think zipping is good but something that big takes to long to zip varikonniemi09:29
JadedJacobWhen you say there is something wrong...Do you mean you think your harddrive is on the way out?09:29
hayloplus unless the data has a compressible pattern it doesnt get that much smaller09:29
varikonniemiyeah but what is it doing this all time when cpu usage is at 5-10% for the process09:29
icerootvarikonniemi: what is the value of %wa09:30
varikonniemimemory usage 50M09:30
DJ_EternalIs it smart to install Kubuntu with Ubuntu and Xubuntu09:30
icerootvarikonniemi: on top09:30
varikonniemiiceroot, ?09:30
haylowill take ten percent cpu to do an operationg like this09:30
icerootvarikonniemi: you are talking about cpu usage, what is "top" showing for the value %wa09:30
varikonniemiwhere can i find %wa09:30
rick__ok im back09:31
jattyou should do the experiment how it takes to uncompress the 60GB. and then compress them again09:31
icerootvarikonniemi: open a terminal and type in "top"09:31
icerootvarikonniemi: at the top of that screen there is %wa09:32
rick__you there09:32
icerootvarikonniemi: that is the reason why it is working so long09:32
icerootvarikonniemi: %wa = waiting time of the cou for your hdd09:33
auronandaceDJ_Eternal: i don't like unity either (xfce is my choice)09:33
varikonniemiiceroot, ok :)09:33
icerootvarikonniemi: so your cpu is waiting 40-60% of the time because your hdd is not delivering the data fast enough09:33

DJ_Eternaliceroot i know alot about it09:34
quiescensthan actual io saturation09:34
icerootquiescens: no09:34

auronandaceDJ_Eternal: if you want slackware then why did you install xubuntu?09:43
DJ_EternalCause i couldn't get my Slackware to update to 13.3709:43
varikonniemii restarted my computer and python process is still zombie. Is this normal?09:44

aBoundDJ_Eternal, Doesn't seem like Slackware requires 6 CDs there's a package with the DVD for everything and 6 ISOs which means you don't need all of them.09:50

_Ethan_when manually creating the partitions, /home should be the biggest one in size?09:59
cristian_c I'm using Oneiric Ocelot 11.10, I purchased an asus WL-330gE. The device shields the connection to the router, unfortunately I have to first establish a direct connection to the router, and then the computer automatically snaps to a repeater. But if the PC tries to connect to the router via the repeater, it fails09:59
Tiven__Ethan_ : no need for that10:00
Tiven_it's all about what you need10:00
reisio_Ethan_: but yes, in general10:00
bc81_Ethan_: generally, yes.10:00
Tiven_because you usually use the most space for saving in there10:00
cristian_cthe network manager tries to connect several times, but it fails to connect. So I updated the firmware to the latest version, from version to, but unfortunately the problem persists10:01
reisioif you put everything on one partition, you don't have to consider this10:01
cristian_cWhat can I do to solve the problem?10:01
_Ethan_so /home is supposed to be the "folder" where i put data10:01
glosolibob___: Thanks for answer :) Might be what I need10:01
pfifocristian_c, you might want to ask in ##hardware this is ubuntu support10:01
_Ethan_the thing is , arent they just folders but partitions?10:02
_Ethan_i can understand to have a swap partition10:02
auronandace_Ethan_: i use a seperate storage partition for my files10:02
reisio_Ethan_: home is for non-OS data10:02
pfifo_Ethan_, you dont have to make /home a partition at all10:02
_Ethan_and in fact i have one partition for data in my windows xp, because i wanted it10:03
Tiven__Ethan_ : basically home is all that you save. i used to use Home on my headless server to save all services (webservers, gameservers, etc)10:03
_Ethan_pfifo but is it the default mode ubuntu uses when installing isnt it ?10:03
cristian_cpfifo, is this not a problem that affects the operating system?10:03
llutz__Ethan_: then just dont put /home on extra partition, mount your data-filesystem later to i.e. /home/you/data10:04
pfifo_Ethan_, because it makes reinstalling easier, you wont lose all your settings if you have a seperate /home10:04
reisioyou shouldn't _have_ to reinstall, though, if course10:04
Tiven_personally i prefer knowing that if anything at all happens, i know that im safe just by getting this one partition10:05
_Ethan_thanks a lot for your help10:05
_Ethan_cross fingers for me10:05
Tiven_good luck bro10:05
_Ethan_because i actually have two primary partitions, windows xp and data10:05
reisioto be safe you must backup10:05
llutz_Tiven_: that's what backups are for10:05
reisioregardless of partition scheme10:06
_Ethan_next i´ll do ext 4 / as primary10:06
Tiven_i always backup, i always use partitions too :P10:06
_Ethan_swap and /home10:06
_Ethan_(/home as logical)10:06
llutz__Ethan_: logical/primary makes no difference10:06
UidXis there any program which analyzes a jar file and draws an entire class map?10:07
auronandace_Ethan_: i keep all my linux partitions as logical (allows primaries to be used for other OS's)10:07
UidXoh is there #java?10:07
UidXthanks im new to this server so i'm not really used to it10:07
dns53UidX there are, but ask somewhere else, it has been a while since i did java programming10:07
reisioI don't multi-boot, seems a waste of time10:07
_Ethan_llutz yes, but i´ll have 3 primary partitions so i´d prefer to kept the one left for a future possibility10:07
_Ethan_auronandace exactly10:08
reisioUidX: /msg alis list *foo*10:08
llutz__Ethan_: just put all non-win stuff on logical10:08
_Ethan_"/" needs to be primary isnt it ?10:08
llutz__Ethan_: no10:08
pfifoauronandace, how many OS's do you need10:08
auronandacepfifo: not a question of need10:08
llutz__Ethan_: logical/primary makes no difference (for most non-windows OS)10:08
_Ethan_thought the OS partition needs to be primary10:09
auronandacepfifo: i like to keep my options open, and its fun to try something new10:09

reisionot that a desktop install needs more than for partitions10:09
auronandace_Ethan_: no, linux and haiku can reside entirely in logical partitions10:09
reisioor even two10:09
pfiforeisio, I require 610:09
_Ethan_auronandace then you meant that for linux you always use logicals to reserve primary partitions for windows for example ?10:09

cristian_can another question:10:11
_Ethan_just a last question, would you recommend defragmentation ?10:11
_Ethan_prior all this process?10:11
norbert79_Ethan_: There are no defragmentation tools for Linux, since EXT3-4 doesn't need such... It's done automatically10:12

ubuntuaddictedBenSprz, WIFI drivers have been a sore spot in ubuntu for a long time. They add drivers to the linux kernel when they feel they are working BUT sometimes bugs get introduced which then make that driver which is built into the kernel not work. Sometimes you have to blacklist a module from loading and use a different driver (module)11:43

Tom22norbert76 so why isn't alsamixer showing my volume levels?12:15
norbert79Tom22: Might be because of incomplete support or other issues, but what I see is, that you only have three options listed. Press F5 and check all options12:15
norbert79if those are all, then you have not a full support of your soundcard, or there is another issue present12:16
bullgard4Tom22: If you are unable to raise the volume from 00 then it is a bug, I believe. Try again after  restarting the computer. If this still happens, I'd google if someone having your computer type else experienced the same mis-behaviour.. Or file a bug report in Launchpad.12:16
norbert79bullgard4: Sorry, but this is just a very generic, and wrong approach. it's not a bug, he only can just access limited features supported by the soundcard.12:17

bullgard4norbert79: "incomplete support" is a bug.12:19
norbert79bullgard4: Again, not true. If the kernel lacks a support of a specific hardware, it's not related to the Ubuntu distribution itself12:19

dr_willisthe update-alternatived system defines what versions are the defaults i belive12:51
dr_willisthere nay be some guides on askubuntu.com on usung different versions of python12:52
Lachezarmod_wsgi seems to require (re)compilation against the appropriate runtime version.12:53
norbert79holms: Anyway, to make things clear, you are talking about holms: libapache2-mod-wsgi and that package is depending on libpython2.6 (>= 2.6), python (>= 2.6), python (<< 2.7)12:53
holmsyea i saw that =/12:53
holmsso it's the only way?12:53
holmsthen I need probably to install in apache mods-enable by my self too12:53
norbert79holms: Since python 2.6* is supported for Lucid, I am still riddled how you managed getting 2.7.212:54
holmspoython 2.6 - IS DEAD12:54
Lachezarholms: Well... I can see a few different python*wsgi packages, that refer to different python versions.12:54
norbert79holms: So I would assume you used a PPA for getting a later python, but you tried to use the internal module, which only supports 2.612:54
holmsnorbert79: so i've already installed python 2.712:54
holmsroot@li270-125:/# python --version12:55
holmsPython 2.7.212:55
norbert79holms: Sure, now you only need to get the module compiled for 2.7.2 too12:55
holmsbut wsgi doesn't see it12:55
norbert79since Lucid supports for wsgi only python 2.6*12:55
holmsnorbert79: now that's lol12:56
holms2.6 is out of date12:56
norbert79holms: Not really12:56
holmseven datetime functions works differently12:56
norbert79holms: Lucid came with 2.6. If you wish having a more recent version you need to go to Python for providing the deb packages for you using Lucid, or you need to compile the module on your own12:56

norbert79holms: Here is the link to the WSGI page: http://code.google.com/p/modwsgi/wiki/DownloadTheSoftware?tm=212:58
Lachezarholms: There seems to be a WSGIPythonHome directive. Maybe this can help?12:59
norbert79Lachezar: Might cause issues, since the module was compiled for 2.612:59

Ramonskiehyperstream, no the is going to be a server, i had the 10.04 installed but there where alot of problems with the network card so i wiped the thing i wanted to start with a newer version13:29
* ericandrewlewis is aware of dual booting / partitioning13:29
PhorcePRamonskie: I believe 10.10 will become unsupported in April, so it may not be the best choice of versions13:30
dr_willisericandrewlewis:  why pay the extra $if you dont need osx13:30
hyperstreamRamonskie, ahh, im afraid its out of my reach. From what i've semi gathered/pictured, i figured there was an old ubuntu grub loader that is kicking over instead of booting from CD or USB (BIOS Boot order)13:30
ericandrewlewisdr_willis b/c i've become accustomed to osx over the past 7 years, and the applications built on it13:30

ubottubabalu: Please don't ask the same question in multiple Ubuntu channels at the same time. Many helpers are in more than one channel and it's not fair to them or the other people seeking support.14:31
babaluLjL: sorry14:32

prowerhello everyone :> i'm still having a weird dvd burning issue in 11.10 that has existed in my case since...i believe 9.04. though my burner supports speeds of up to 18x (as do the dvd-r's that i'm using), wodim in k3b reports that my burner doesn't support speeds of 18x and downgrades right to 4x :< this is not a problem in any other linux distribution i use, nor windows...anyone know what...14:38
prower...might be going on here?14:38
sandy19hey can some one help me on xampp installation14:38
ikoniasandy19: what are you trying to install ?14:38
bazhangsandy19, xampp is not supported, use lamp14:38
sandy19oh yes lamp on 64 bit ubuntu14:39
sandy19here is my problem i tried to install lamp14:40
ikoniasandy19: how did you try to install lamp14:40
jrib!lamp | sandy1914:40
ubottusandy19: LAMP is an acronym for Linux-Apache-MySQL-PHP. However, the term is often used for setups using alternative but different software, such as Perl or Python instead of PHP, and Postgres instead of MySQL. For help with setting up LAMP on Ubuntu, see  https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ApacheMySQLPHP - See also the Server CD installation process (different in Edgy+)14:40
jribikonia: according to his forum post, he's trying to use xampp14:40
ikoniajrib: and yet he's in here saying lamp......14:41
babalui get an error message when i start apt-get, that says that there is a lock14:41
babaluwhat can i do?14:41
proweri'd think twice about using python as a web-app development language in ubuntu, considering some of the problems with the basic functioning in the version of python 2.x in 11.10 :<14:41
jribprower: what problems/14:41
ikoniawhat are you talking about ?14:41
prowerjrib: i'll give a demonstration if you'd like! just open up a terminal and run python as the interactive interpreter14:42
jribprower: yes?14:42
prowerjrib: alright, now type help(), then modules14:42
eikkeI just provisioned an Oneiric machine using Ubuntu Orchestra using the default profile14:42
eikkenow I'm wondering: what are the username/password to use?!14:43
prowerjrib: you should see a segfault14:43
proweri'm not trying to be insulting by the way, i've been contributing to information on the bug on launchpad :>14:43
sipiorprower: works fine here.14:43
prowersipior: really? That's interesting...are you using unity or kde? 32-bit or 64-bit?14:44
prower(this information could really help)14:44
sipiorprower: server install, 64-bit.14:44
ikoniathe desktop shouldn't matter14:44
prowersipior: aha...the segfault occurs when parts of gtk are installed, that's probably why you don't see it...and as ikonia says on a server you're probably not going to have desktop stuff installed anyway :> that's good to know though, a little bit closer to what the problem might be14:45
sipiorprower: i do have a fair bit of gtk installed, but it's possible there's a package or two missing. in any event, you say you've submitted a bug report.14:46
jdhfrwhy is bluetiith built in ubuntu?14:47
sipiorjdhfr: why wouldn't it be?14:47
jdhfrbecause it's optional hardware14:48
ikoniajdhfr: it doesn't get loaded if there is no blue tooth hardware14:48
sipiorjdhfr: fairly common optional hardware, you mean.14:48
prowersipior: oh yes, the bug is in there...it hasn't been assigned to anyone yet but it's there :> it's just a bit discouraging to have some of the basic functionality of python broken when you're writing apps in it...particularly for new users to python, a lot of tutorials direct you to help() modules and on a typical 64-bit, unity installation that causes a crash :/ it'll all be fixed in time though14:48
LjLjdhfr: most hardware is "optional", that doesn't mean Ubuntu shouldn't have built-in support for it.14:49
dholbachhttps://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuDeveloperWeek day 2 starting in 10 minutes in #ubuntu-classroom14:50
jdhfrit should not have unremovable support i belibe?14:50
ikoniajdhfr: it is14:50
ikoniajdhfr: you can remove the software you don't want, and the modules don't get loaded unless there is bluetooth hardware in the machine14:50
ikoniashisha42: ?14:51
ikoniashisha42: stop that14:51
ikoniashisha42: do you need Ubuntu help ?14:51
jdhfrwell i tried remove bluez stuff but my desktop applications going with it :(14:51
ikoniajdhfr: no they don't14:51
sandy19hello guys i tried to follow the tutorial given by bot14:51
ikoniajdhfr: and to be honest it takes up approx 1.2 meg of disk space, why do you care14:51
sandy19but failed14:51
ikoniasandy19: you need to give more information than "it failed"14:52
sandy19ok my os : ubuntu 11.10 (64bit)14:52
sandy19i download the lamp14:53
proweri'll try to dig up information on the bug so that if anyone experiences it here they can report it as well :> just need to figure out why my sound suddenly stopped working first, bbl14:53
ikoniasandy19: how did you download lamp ?14:53
sandy19tar ball file14:53
ikoniasandy19: no - there is no tar ball in those instructions14:53

dr_willisthat was for Teddy115:38

mneptokhappyblue: or the USB media you're using is nearing EOL15:39
prowerepron: probably just drive-by scripts trying to brute force their way in, i changed the default port for ssh and never saw any failed attempts again except for my own15:39
epronprower: I know, but ufw is supposed to rate limit them15:40
Kartagisdr_willis: I can play sounds but not input. where do I look?15:40
eproni still get > 15-15 entries per ip in a 2 minutes timespan15:40
happybluemneptok but besides that problem, I cant install any programmes during my live-session, so theres something wrong with that15:40
Teddy1dr_willis:  I dont havent had so much good times with vlc in the browser(in windows or ubuntu)15:40
john_doe_jrdr_willis, that sets it15:40
DinoMuffinepron: most effective way to reduce failed attempts is to move sshd to a non-standard port15:41
prowerepron: hmm...not sure what to tell you there i've never set up rate limiting...maybe there's an option in sshd_config that would do the job15:41
happybluemneptok does not matter if its a small or a large programme15:41

LjL!firewall | memyself16:13
ubottumemyself: Ubuntu, like any other Linux distribution, has firewall capabilities built-in. The firewall is managed using the 'ufw' command - see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UFW | An alternative to ufw is the 'iptables' command - See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/IptablesHowTo | GUI frontends such as Gufw (GNOME) and Guarddog (KDE Lucid and Maverick) also exist.16:13

bazhangjdhfr, editorializing and offtopic commentary in #ubuntu-offtopic16:15

DinoMuffinanyone, ANYONE, with a packet sniffer can pull all the non encrypted data16:18

memyselfit's not ? meaning ?16:20
memyselfso now the question is should i or shouldn't i configure firewall ?16:21

BoreeasNo easy way to do it? Alright then16:26
abyscan somebody tell me what packages ubuntu is using to set up wireless ?16:26
sipiorBoreeas: before you do that, make sure the reserved block percentage on that partition is set to zero: "sudo /sbintune2fs -m 0 /dev/<device>". should give you five percent of the volume back.16:26
sipiorBoreeas: sorry: "/sbin/tune2fs"16:27

ubottuUbuntu bug 796752 in seahorse-plugins (Ubuntu) "[Oneiric] Attempt to install would lead to removal of essential packages" [High,Triaged]16:27
Boreeassipior: Sorry, I didn't understand that. What is that going to do?16:27
sipiorLjL: reserved blocks is an ancient defense mechanism, which wastes tens of gigabytes on modern drives. time to bury it.16:28
gandhijee_hey, what do i need to install in the base chroot ubuntu to have it setup a different hostname for itself, and get the color and auto-complete stuff going on?16:28
LjLsipior: is there a replacement for it, though?16:28
sipiorLjL: none is really required.16:29
memyselfFirewall is active and enabled on system startup , means i got the ufw start up already or i need to restart?16:29
esuavelooking for some load testing solutions to test some of my ubuntu 8 servers.. anyone know of anything good?16:30
memyselfooh , it's firestarter that is obselete16:30
sipiorBoreeas: ext filesystem creation generally reserves a small portion of disk block for exclusive access of the superuser. this is old-fashioned, but surprisingly common even on modern machines. turn it off, and get a fair bit of space back.16:30
sipiorBoreeas: you'll still want to claim that unused 50GB, but this might take some of the pressure off.16:30
Boreeassipior: So /dev/<device> would be the ubuntu filesystem, not the unallocated? Alright, I'll do that, thanks16:31
gandhijee_sipior, the reason it still exists is so that the system still has space for log files... if that particular volume isn't being used for any logging use tune2fs to change the storage amount16:32
sipiorBoreeas: yep, the partition you want to modify.16:32
sipiorgandhijee_: no, that's not why.16:32
gandhijee_then why16:32
LjLBoreeas: please keep in mind that the operation sipior is suggesting *does* take away the capability for root processes to access reserved blocks, which might impair those processes' ability to do their work when the disk is full. if you do that, be aware of the consequences.16:32
sipiorgandhijee_: this isn't the 80's.16:32
gandhijee_so you don't keep log files for you systems?16:32
gandhijee_i know its save my butt before.16:32
sipiorgandhijee_: that's nice.16:32
gandhijee_so you still haven't given a valid reason....16:33
sipiorgandhijee_: i have no interest in validating my opinions to you. do what you want, as i will.16:35
LjLsipior: the problem is not what you do but what you recommend to people in this channel.16:35
gandhijee_pretty much16:35
gandhijee_if you have a good reason for it, then please share, otherwise, don't just say this is what it is.16:36

Sicpplease see this thread, http://askubuntu.com/questions/76712/setting-nautilus-open-terminal-to-launch-terminator-rather-than-gnome-terminal16:37
Sicplook at the first answer, I cannot find anything called "dconf-tools" in my repositories. All I can find is "dconf" and it doesn't have a "gsettings" tool with it16:37
sipiorllutz: that is indeed fair, at least on /. still, when has that been a problem in the last decade? :-)16:37
llutzsipior: that root-reserved blocks only make sense on / or /tmp or /var, but is pretty nonsense on all other data-fs16:38
sipiorllutz: even then, i have reservations (ahem)16:38
Sicpwhy do I need dconf-tools anyway16:40
Sicpcan't I change that value from gconf-editor?16:40
