holsteinveryhappy: no worries :)00:00
macmartineikonia: no idea what's with all the php5 instances00:00
nivyajveryhappy: if i go into the directory and type ./idea.sh  the program works, but from another directory, it doesn't00:00
nivyajdoes that mean i didn't set the right location in my path?00:00
daniel___I'll be back00:01
kinouveryhappy: But concerning the shutdown, I always used the graphical icon on the upper right to shutdown the computer. It used to work.00:01
=== linux is now known as rick_james
ikoniamacmartine: that doesn't like like a standard ubuntu web server setup00:01
Romeo5kok.. i need someone help.. I hAVe not even a clue about crontabs.. so i asked fior help,.. and my system  wont even read crontab- e00:01
ikoniamacmartine: that looks very on, especially as there is no httpd process running00:01
kinouveryhappy: Now, it brings me back to the login screen everytime.00:01
Romeo5k whats wrong?00:01
jribRomeo5k: "crontab -e" to edit your crontab00:01
macmartineikonia: i'm running nginx00:01
jrib!cron | Romeo5k00:01
ubottuRomeo5k: cron is a way to schedule execution of software/scripts. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/CronHowto00:01
FlannelRomeo5k: what do you mean 'wont even read crontab -e'?00:02
Romeo5ksomoene said i need to install crontabs... ive tried all i can try to my knowwldge and  ubuntu is still not understanding00:02
veryhappykinou: it always returns to the graphical login?00:02
Romeo5k can anyone pls walk me thru this apain00:02
nivyajveryhappy: fixed it00:02
ikoniamacmartine: postgres and mysql ?00:02
macmartineikonia: yeah00:02
veryhappynivyaj: good00:02
schnuffleRomeo5k: crontab is installed by default00:02
Romeo5knot for me it isnt00:02
macmartineikonia: postgres for my rails app, mysql for wordpress00:02
ToBIOSchronofire: Sorry about the wait. Got caught up with something else.00:02
nivyajveryhappy: yea- i'm getting more confident  with this stuff00:02
Romeo5kive tried everythig i could00:02
Romeo5k i promise00:02
schnuffleRomeo5k: You mean you don't have cron installed?00:03
ToBIOSchronofire: So you didn't use Wubi?00:03
Romeo5k yea00:03
veryhappynivyaj: good, that's fine, see you00:03
kinouveryhappy: yes.00:03
ikoniamacmartine: doesn't look in the best of setup,00:03
Romeo5k i mean crontab is not installed00:03
macmartineikonia: how so?00:03
Romeo5kand i dont know how to install it00:03
schnuffleRomeo5k: okay then install it with: sudo apt-get install cron00:03
kinouveryhappy: it displays the "shutdown animation" and then brings me back to the login screen.00:03
jribRomeo5k: what exactly happens when you enter « crontab -e » in your shell?00:03
ikoniamacmartine: looks like your web server is either over spawning (try fewer bigger processes) or you've just got a machine that's massivly under powered00:03
Romeo5kjrib command not found00:04
ikoniamacmartine: ever considered running wordpress on postgres to try to only run one database process,00:04
jribRomeo5k: what did you type?00:04
veryhappykinou: to be honest, i got no idea for this problem.00:04
Romeo5kcrontab -e00:04
jribRomeo5k: copy and paste the whole line00:04
jribRomeo5k: how did you install ubuntu?00:04
kinouveryhappy: :/00:04
Romeo5kjust the regular way00:04
macmartineikonia: yeah, i'll have to migrate it over. I'm just seeing if I'm up for managing all this myself before I commit00:04
Romeo5kits on a vps00:05
jribRomeo5k: "regular way" is meaningless.00:05
Romeo5k but right now its actualy installing it00:05
kinouveryhappy: thanks for the intended help and for saying that rather than letting me wait for nothing.00:05
daniel___@urlin2u, I'm back and my device mounted. I had to have it plugged in before Ubuntu started up00:05
pSy4130@jrib, boot the CD and follow the instructions, do you have a specific question?00:05
jimi_holstein, i fixed it00:05
jimi_holstein, no thanks to you :P00:05
jimi_holstein, j/k :)00:05
urlin2udaniel___, hmm, do you have it in fstab?00:05
jribpSy4130: no, I do not have a question00:05
mukaibothi there, I'm having some weirdness with my bridged networking configuration00:05
mukaibotin kvm00:06
macmartineikonia: can you direct me to info about how to firgure out the over spawning?00:06
funnyfingerssyn-ack I want to make a mysql socket file.00:06
daniel___@urlin2u, One second00:06
veryhappykinou: no problem, i tried what i could00:06
Romeo5kjrib it works now00:06
mukaibotI can ssh to a guest, but the guest can't ping hosts, nslookup, etc...output from ifconfig, netstat and /etc/resolv.conf  appears correct00:06
syn-ackfunnyfingers, wait, what00:06
holsteinjimi_: lol... what was the deal?00:06
Romeo5k it actually respnds to crontab now00:06
urlin2udaniel___, I wouldn't just wondering.00:06
daniel___No it doesn't show up in fstab00:06
urlin2udaniel___, cool hope it continues to work.00:06
funnyfingerssyn-ack with CentOS if a socket file is missing I use mksock to make it again.00:06
jimi_holstein, I think something had the audio devices locked, pulse could only see dummy output, so i killed it and restarted pulse and it worked00:07
daniel___@urlin2u, I have a strong feeling it will stop working next time I restart without having something plugged in like this00:07
syn-ackfunnyfingers, mysql should do that automatically when you launch it. that's what mysql.sock is00:07
funnyfingersERROR 2002 (HY000): Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/opt/zimbra/db/mysql.sock' (111)00:07
holsteinjimi_: yeah... you know how "somebody" is when they get around your machine! ... glad you got it working :)00:07
funnyfingersThe file doesn't exist.00:07
jimi_holstein, heh, it was a fresh install! :P00:08
syn-ackfunnyfingers, rm mysql.sock and restart it00:08
ikoniafunnyfingers: that's not an ubuntu install00:08
funnyfingersthe file doesn't exist00:08
trojanAny good IDE suggestion for web ,, php ?00:08
ikoniafunnyfingers: the ubuntu install doesn't get put in that location00:08
holsteinjimi_: in some cases, pavucontrol has killed pulse on me00:08
funnyfingersI know it isn't.00:08
ikoniafunnyfingers: what distro is it ?00:08
funnyfingersjust not an Ubuntu app00:08
ikoniafunnyfingers: ok - so where did you get mysql from ?00:08
ikoniafunnyfingers: so they are the people who will support you00:08
funnyfingersSo Ubuntu has no socket file maker like CentOS?00:09
mukaibotI'm having some issues with bridged networking in KVM. I can ssh to a guest, but the guest can't ping hosts, nslookup, etc...output from ifconfig, netstat and /etc/resolv.conf appears correct00:09
ikoniafunnyfingers: you've not using ubuntu's mysql00:09
ikoniafunnyfingers: ubuntus does have a socket file00:09
funnyfingersYes but I want to make a socket file.00:09
ikoniavmware can help you with this sort of thing, try the #vmware channel00:09
ikoniafunnyfingers: it's not an ubuntu software product or problem00:09
WoCfunnyfingers, the socket is created when the mysqld is running00:09
funnyfingersWoC what does it use to create it?00:10
ikoniafunnyfingers: the daemon creates it00:10
WoCfunnyfingers, making it manually would prevent mysqld from starting00:10
funnyfingersah I 'll check the daemon then.00:10
ikoniafunnyfingers: again #vmware is the channel for this00:10
funnyfingersno it isn't ikonia00:10
ikoniafunnyfingers: yes it is, it's a vmware product, this isn't an ubuntu issue/application00:11
syn-acksomeones gonna get a banhammer..... :P00:11
syn-acksince when is mysql a vmware product?00:11
syn-ackit's an oracle product. :P00:11
ikoniasyn-ack: it's a custom built mysql bundled with zimba (vmware)00:11
syn-ackjust saw that00:11
ikoniaI'm reading the documentation on it00:11
syn-ackikonia, yeah, don't mind me. heh00:12
urlin2usyn-ack, lol ikonia would have to ban themselves.00:12
JacobVengeanceAnyone here use Pantheon?00:12
ikoniafunnyfingers: also http://support.zimbra.com/supportlogin.php00:13
funnyfingersikonia you are missing my whole question.00:13
syn-ackNo he's not00:13
funnyfingersAnd I am using ZCS00:13
syn-ackyou're missing the part where it's Zimbra, not Ubuntu00:13
ikoniafunnyfingers: that's fine, however that product is a custom vmware product maintained and supported by vmware00:14
ikoniafunnyfingers: that's why I'm linking you to the #vmware channel and the Zimba support resources,00:14
funnyfingersI've been there and have had to fix all of my own problems up to this socket file problem where on CentOS I create a socket using mksock.  Ubuntu and Debian no longer have it it seems.00:15
runais there an alternative to nocturne in linux? i know that xcalib could calibrate easily the screen but i can not find the right icc.00:15
ikoniafunnyfingers: the mysql daemon creates/removes the socket file now00:15
ikoniafunnyfingers: however as this is a custom mysql build, we can't really say how it is supposed to be setup00:15
macmartineikonia: Are the php processes the main things that look odd?00:16
jimi_I just got an email from "lilnigglet48 " :(00:16
ikoniamacmartine: certainly a lot00:16
ikoniajimi_: how is that anything to do with this channel ?00:16
macmartineikonia: what else looks odd?00:16
ikoniamacmartine: the footprint for ispconfig seemed "big"00:16
* damaltor raises hand00:17
funnyfingersikonia and I said earlier I am going to dig through the debian mysql daeom and see how they create it.00:17
_Raider_on_the_sI am using Empathy. how do I see available rooms?00:17
ikoniadamaltor: a sloppy configuration web tool for managing a server, like webmin00:17
ikoniafunnyfingers: how will that add any value when it's a custom build00:17
macmartineikonia: Ok. It  looks like I can just set pm.max_children to 2 or something, instead of 50, so it doesn't create so many php processes .00:18
damaltorikonia: i know, i am using it for ages00:18
ikoniafunnyfingers: you need to be talking to vmware, the debian build will be different00:18
ikoniamacmartine: make sure that you have enough to handle your traffic though00:18
veryhappycan someone help me with my terminal issue?00:18
macmartineikonia: but wondering if there's anything else you think i should look into00:18

jimi_lol that nick was ridiculous00:19
macmartineikonia: meaning what?00:19
WoCToo Many pipes ? ;000:19

bobenhaushello. is there a way to create a shortcut from  a folder that resides on a NAS?00:20
WoCbobenhaus, such as a sym-link ?00:20
magicJin my /etc/passwd file there are all the usual default users.  Many of them are set to have a login shell as /bin/sh - isn't this an unncessary security risk - who or what needs to be able to get into them - I have no idea what the password is.00:21
ikoniamagicJ: they are probably locked accounts00:22
ikoniamagicJ: some accounts need a valid shell to do their tasks00:22
bobenhaushello. is there a way to create a shortcut from  a folder that resides on a NAS?00:23
bobenhausall these peoples and nobody talking00:24
WoCbobenhaus, i think i already gave you the answer to that00:24
ikoniabobenhaus: people are talking00:24
bobenhausoh sorry didnt see that. my apologize00:24
WoCNo worries, bobenhaus :)00:24
mukaibotbobenhaus: not everyone knows the answer to every question!00:24
mukaibotI have a KVM problem which no-one wanted to bite at ;)00:25
bobenhausWoC:  I just have a music folder on a NAS that I would like to create a shortcut to my desktop just like in windows is all :)00:25
magicJikonia: that is what I was worried about - how do I know which ones and why is this not a big security risk?00:25
ikoniamagicJ: trust the people who made the build00:25
WoCfortunatley some of us do have some of the answers to some of the questions ;) and some even know how to spell ;)00:25
bobenhausWoc: Sounds like me lol00:26
magicJikonia: OK - so how does trust help - what stops these ports being accessible ?00:26
ikoniamukaibot: you're question, looks like your forwarding is not setup correctly, if you can ssh in, your incoming nat seems ok, but looks like you're out going it not setup00:26
ikoniamagicJ: you trust the people that made the build took reasonable security concerns into consideration00:26
bobenhausWoc: Can I create a shortcut on my desktop and then tell the NAS the path?00:26
magicJikonia: but what could that be if there is a shell login defined?00:27
mukaibotikonia: if I'm using a bridged configuration, doesn't that remove the need for NAT?00:27
Danny_JorisHi - I'm having trouble pinging my ubuntu VM from my host (snow leopard) . If I do ifconfig, I see eth0 has an IP assigned to it, but I can't ping it. (timeout) It does work at work, but not at home. Could there something be wrong in my /interfaces file? I've set eh0 as a static IP00:27
ikoniamagicJ: a shell of /bin/sh does not mean it can login00:27
WoCbobenhaus, i havent actually used NAS but i figured it would be something similar to nfs, where a sym-link would be possible00:28
mukaibotDanny_Joris: can you please post ifconfig from both machines?00:28
ikoniamukaibot: sorry, nat was a bad wording choice, you still need your connection "forwarded" though00:28
bobenhausWoc: Its just a share on a network00:28
osmosisneed some help. After I login, i get a blank desktop...no way to launch an application. have to power off and reset. How do I fix?  Is gnome corrupt?00:28
mukaibotikonia: can you elaborate on 'forwarding'?00:28
bobenhausWoC: I get error when trying to create a sym link :(00:29
magicJikonia: aha - why does it not - what could stop it - I guess that is what I am really asking.  Surely if I have sshd enabled - which I do for an account I need then sshd is there and somone could login if they knew the user name and password00:29
WoCbobenhaus, chances are you might have to make a desktop file for it00:29
ikoniamukaibot: sure, if you have an ip address of on your virtual guest, and it needs to use to do a dns lookup, you'll either need ipforwarding setup, or a routed system to get it from network a to b and back00:29
veryhappycan someone please help me with my graphics issue?00:29
mukaibotikonia: everything is on the same subnet00:29
bobenhausWoc: hmm not sure how to do that stuff yet but learning.00:29
ikoniamagicJ: what user accounts are you worried about ?00:29
mukaibotikonia: should the bridge have an IP address too?00:30
bobenhausWoc:  error while creating a linki to music; The target doesnt support symbolic links00:30
ikoniamukaibot: ok - so you don't need a bridged network card if they are all in the same subnet00:30
ikoniathere is no need to bridge00:30
Danny_Jorismukaibot: I'm a networking noob - there's no safety risks posting my hosts ifconfig?00:30
nivyaji'm  getting an error when I'm tryuing to set an enviromnent variable: I write  export SCALA_HOME= "/home/nivjay/bin/scala-2.9.1/bin" and i get that:  it's not a valid identifier00:31
mukaibotikonia: the documentation says otherwise00:31
ikonianivyaj: remove the sapce00:31
magicJikonia: all the early ones that the install set up - games, bin, daemon, etc00:31
mukaibotikonia: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/KVM/Networking00:31
ikonianivyaj: SCALE_HOME="/home/nivjay/bin/scala-2.9.1/bin"00:31
nivyajikonia: UGH00:31
WoCbobenhaus, another way would be to add it to your rc.local and having it mounted automatic each boot and just make a sym-link on your desk to where ever you mounted it00:31
ikoniamagicJ: they are locked accounts00:31
mukaibotDanny_Joris: you can post it00:31
xSmurfanyone has some experience with initramfs hooks? I want to understand how the cryptroot cryptpassdev and cryptgnupg hooks work I'm not too sure what gets called when00:31
mukaibotDanny_Joris: they will just be private addresses - we can't access them via the internet00:32
ikoniamukaibot: which part are you looking at on that page00:32
xSmurfdoes the update tool only put them in the init script when they are defined in grub?00:32
bobenhausWOC: I can see the NAS via the filemanger but I just want to create a shortcut thats the problem.00:32

Danny_Jorismukaibot: https://skitch.com/dannyjoris/g63yf/smithsonian-vm-running00:33
Danny_Jorisah shit00:33
magicJikonia: that's what I wanted to understand I guess - how are they locked?00:33
ikoniaDanny_Joris: easy on the language please.00:33
Danny_Jorisikonia: sorry00:33
ikoniamagicJ: by locking them (that's what it's called) it stops them being usable as a login account00:33
nivyajikonia:  when i write$ source /etc/environment  I know it "sources" the changes... what does that mean?00:33
ikonianivyaj: re-reads the information in that file00:34
mukaibotDanny_Joris: your subnets are different00:34
mukaibotthat's why you can't ping the hosts00:34
magicJikonia: OK - but how does one LOCK an account - I guess that is really the question I cam coming to00:34
nivyajikonia: so recompliles it?00:34
ikonianivyaj: no, just re-reads it00:34
ikoniamagicJ: essentials sets no valid password for it, so you can't login00:34
magicJikonia: and what about games, is that locked?00:34
mukaibotikonia: ^ I don't want user networking, I want bridged00:34
ikoniamagicJ: yes, it's locked00:34
KrywkI need help.00:34
=== cis is now known as CIS
ikoniamukaibot: why ? you have nothing to bridge, it's on the same subnet00:35
KrywkWell, first of all, hi :P00:35
ikoniamukaibot: bridging is for joining two networks together, you are on the same network, there is nothing to bridge00:35
magicJikonia: TY - that's what I wanted to know - and so I assume that the root is that way too, yes?  And, if I wanted to set one that way myself how would I set what you call "no valid password"00:35
mukaibotikonia: because I want each guest to run daemons, and don't want to create firewall rules00:35
ikoniamagicJ: root is already locked00:36
ikoniamukaibot: you don't need bridging for that00:36
ikoniamukaibot: again - you have nothing to bridge00:36
mukaibotikonia: Bridged networking allows the virtual interfaces to connect to the outside network through the physical interface, making them appear as normal hosts to the rest of the network.00:36
mukaibotaccording to the documentation00:36
ikoniamukaibot: yes, that is correct00:36
magicJikonia: This is GREAT - TY - so, if I wanted to set a "locked" one, how would I set "no valid password"00:36
KrywkWell, my problem is this one: I'm trying to use RecordMyDesktop. It records video fine, but not audio. It records it, but it has REALLY low volume, and an annoying sound. I can't fix it with audacity, so I figured I'd be searching Google for solutions, or make my own. But no success. Anyone know any possible solutions?00:37
mukaibotikonia: usermode networking: In the default configuration, the guest operating system will have access to network services, but will not be visible to other machines on the network. The guest will be able, for example, to browse the web, but will not be able to host an accessible web server.00:37
ikoniamukaibot: and when I said you need to set that up with forwarding, you said you didn't need to as everything was on the same subnet00:37
ikoniamukaibot: if you want them to be visble to the outside world then you'll need to bridge and setup forwarding or "routing" to get traffic in/out of the bridged network00:37
=== mcl0vin_ is now known as mcl0vin
mukaibotikonia: so I *do* need bridged networking00:38
ikoniamukaibot: correct00:38
ikoniamukaibot: if you want to bridge your internal network to the outside world, you'll need to bridge00:38
mukaibotikonia: you just told me I didn't00:38
ikoniamukaibot: because you told me you didn't want to connect to the outside world to see hosts, you said it was all in the same subnet00:38
mukaibotok, that makes sense00:38
ikoniamukaibot: if everything is in the same subnet for communication then you don't need to bridge00:38
mukaibotok, so how should I configure my guests then?00:39
ikoniamukaibot: if you need to see outside that subnet you need to bridge a physical device to get out00:39
ikoniamukaibot: you should configure your guests interfaces to use the bridged device, and then setup the correct forwarding/routing rules00:39
ikonia(iptables normally)00:39
=== CIS is now known as cis
KrywkAnyone have any idea of what's going on?00:39
ikoniaKrywk: in what respect ?00:40
KrywkUhh, whaddya mean "In what respect"?00:40
ikoniaKrywk: "whats going on" - in regard to what ?00:40
WoCbobenhaus, so it works like a windows share ?00:40
KrywkCopy-paste: Well, my problem is this one: I'm trying to use RecordMyDesktop. It records video fine, but not audio. It records it, but it has REALLY low volume, and an annoying sound. I can't fix it with audacity, so I figured I'd be searching Google for solutions, or make my own. But no success. Anyone know any possible solutions?00:40
ikoniano idea00:40
Danny_Jorismukaibot: would that be netmask ?00:41
mukaibotikonia: so what do I need iptables to do then?00:41
KrywkAnyone here using this program, or know another Screen Recording program, with audio?00:41
Danny_Jorismukaibot: netmask 0xffffff00 ?00:41
mukaibotDanny_Joris: no00:41
WoCbobenhaus, if so, you could just mount it using smbclient00:41
ikoniamukaibot: handle your routing/forwarding00:41
syddrafKrywk: I've never used that program before, but the best bet is to check alsamixer, etc to see if an input channel is low.00:41
mukaibotDanny_Joris: one host as a 192.168.1.x address, the other has 192.168.2.x00:41
acerimmerKrywk: what kind of mic?  Laptop mounted or...?00:42
mukaibotikonia: now I'm confused. There's no routing because it's the same subnet.00:42
ikoniamukaibot: there is routing00:42
WoCbobenhaus, the man page for smbclient shows how you can set up user/password so it doesnt show up when you use 'ps'00:42
Krywkacerimmer, not a mic, I want to record the computer's sound, which the program is doing, but that's the problem: Little to no sound and a really annoying sound.00:42
ikoniamukaibot: if you are on and you want to hit the internet on - that is routing/fowarding00:42
ikoniamukaibot: that is not the same subnet00:42
mukaibotikonia: Yes I know. But I thought we had just covered the fact that all my guests are on the same subnet00:43
Cube``_guys, i'm having a huge problem with my usb stick that i cannot fix. it doesnt work, when i try to format it with gparted it says "unrecognized disk label".00:43
ikoniamukaibot: then you don't need bridging00:43
Krywksyddraf, All things are up to maximum in alsamixer00:43
mukaibotikonia: sigh.00:43
mukaibotikonia: never mind00:43
ikoniamukaibot: there is no routing if all your guests are on the same subnet - there is no routing00:43
ikoniamukaibot: do you want your guests to see the internet yes/no ?00:43
mukaibotikonia: yes00:43
syddrafKrywk: Not sure what to say then. Sorry.00:43
ikoniamukaibot: then there IS routing00:43
mukaibotikonia: but they only need to get to my router's IP address00:44
Krywksyddraf, It's ok :)00:44
ikoniamukaibot: that's how your guests get out to the internet, they route out of the bridged devvice and back in00:44
KrywkAnyone know any other good program for recording screen video and sound?00:44
ikoniamukaibot: is your router on the same subnet as the private network ?00:44
mukaibotikonia: yes00:44
ikoniamukaibot: so can your devices ping the router ?00:45

jimearthHello there, can someone help me with the microphone ? It doesn't seem to be reconize by flash player... once I enter a flash chat room, it makes a weird sound and nobody can heard me. The webcam works great... but not the microphone. The microhpone works outside flash player.00:45
jimearthany idea ?00:46
Danny_Jorismukaibot: I changed both broadcast and address in the vm to 1.x and now I can ping 1.x00:47
Danny_Jorismukaibot: and at work I assume I'll have to switch it back to 2.x ?00:48
mukaibotikonia: nope, it can't ping the host00:48
mukaibotikonia: or the router00:48
ikoniamukaibot: what is the gateway ip address on the virtual machine ?00:48
Danny_Jorismukaibot: I pinged the vm from my host00:48
acerimmerKrywk: I'm inclined to believe that it's a setting issue.00:48
mukaibotDanny_Joris: great! So problem solved?00:48
Krywkacerimmer, Any suggestions?00:48
Danny_Jorismukaibot: I guess so. I'll have to see how it works out when I'm back at work, but I know how to solve it now !00:49
acerimmerKrywk: you're on what version of ubuntu??00:49
mukaibotikonia: the guest has my router's IP address00:49
Danny_Jorismukaibot: Thanks so much !!!00:49
mukaibotDanny_Joris: No worries.00:49
Krywkacerimmer, 11.1000:49
ikoniamukaibot: so on paper that should be fine,00:49
ikoniamukaibot: what ip address have you given the bridged device ?00:49
mukaibotikonia: exactly! This is why it's so confusing00:49
mukaibotikonia: bridged device on the guest, or on the host?00:49
ikoniamukaibot: there should be no bridged device on the guest, the host controls/owns the bridged device00:50
acerimmerKrywk: ok, it's going to be somewhat different than what I'm looking at on 10.04.  I'd go to System>Preferences>Sound and play with the input/output and levels00:50
mukaibotikonia: in the documentation, guest.xml has 'interface type=bridge', 'source=br0'00:50
mukaibotwhich is what I've done00:51
ikoniamukaibot: yes, that's telling the guest to use the physical device "br0"00:51
ikoniamukaibot: however br0 needs to be configured on the host00:51
mukaibotwhich is what I've done00:51
ikoniamukaibot: so what have you setup the ip address on br0 to be on the host00:51
mukaibotthat has the ip
ikoniacan you ping from the guest ?00:51
ikoniamukaibot: can you ping from the host00:51
ikoniamukaibot: ok, what is the ip address of the guest00:52
mukaibotI wonder if I should revert back to using the e1000 driver, rather than virtio00:52
ikoniamukaibot: then it is most likley your guest not being setup/configured properly to use the br0 device00:52
ikoniamukaibot: that is the most likley issue, and where you should be looking00:53
mukaibotbahahah - I think I figured it out00:53
ikoniado tell00:53
mukaibothw address is different00:53
ikoniawell done00:54
mukaibotoh wait00:54
mukaibotin guest.xml, I can specify a hw address (which is what I've done)00:54
mukaibotshould that match the bridge?00:54
mukaibotno right?00:54
ikoniathat's for the virtual network card, it doens't matter what that is00:55
ikoniahowever I'll leave you to it as it's bed time here00:55
mukaibotok, thanks for looking into this00:55
magicJincase anyone was following my questions to ikonia on the issue of locked accounts and wonders what the answer was:  the /etc/shadow file contains the crypted version of the password, if that field is set to * then no login is allowed00:57
bobenhausanyone know how to remove read/write from a folder?00:59

DuvrazhCan anyone recommend a good log analyzer for Ubuntu?01:00

zykotick9bobenhaus: "chmod <ugo>-rw /foo" u for user, g for group, o for other01:00
Danny_Jorismukaibot: sorry to come back to this. I just realized that a lot of settings (hardcoded + db settings) involve the ip address. Is it safe to swtich my hosts broadcast from 1.x to 2.x ?01:00
WoCrmdir removes any empty directory01:01
bobenhauspermission denied01:01
WoCdo you own the directory ?01:01

Krywkacerimmer, :/01:03
bobenhauswoc: is apt-get part of the unbuntu software center?01:03
WoCbobenhaus, yes but removing the wrong things may brake things01:03
bobenhauswoc: even from tmp folder?01:04
WoCsome uses /tmp for sockets and things01:04
bobenhauswoc: ok I wont touch01:04
mukaibotDanny_Joris: on your Mac?01:04
bobenhauswoc: do you know the apt-get for firefox nightly?01:04
Danny_Jorismukaibot: yeah01:05
mukaibotDanny_Joris: I'd look into the Locations feature then01:05
mukaibotyou'd basically set up two profiles - work and home01:05
WoCbobenhaus, try apt-cache search, but i think that is a separate repo01:05
mukaibotwork with the 192.168.2.x address, home with 192.168.1.x. Then you just toggle between them01:05
bobenhauswoc: ok01:06
Danny_Jorismukaibot: ah, I'd set that up in my vm?01:07

MadOtisHello, all.  I'm trying to install 11.10 and 10.04 (either one, at this point) on a brand new laptop.  It's got an AMD A8-3520M processor with Radeon HD 6620G video...  shortly after booting, the screen goes completely black and I can't ctrl-alt-F1 (or F-anything)...02:04
soiconzulax: and less hot02:04
holsteinbroimfromafrika: not following you... if you are recovering grub, when you get it recovered, id just reboot and see that it is working02:04
zulaxsoicon, could be, what is the downside of reducing the frequency02:04
broimfromafrikaholstein, it asks me if i want some pastebinit package02:04
broimfromafrikaI'm a lil bit discombambulated about it02:05
MadOtisI've googled and tried removing the splash and quiet and added args like xforcevesa... but no luck.02:05
divadgnol67franky, what DE are you using?02:05
broimfromafrikaI think i want them02:05
soiconzulax: slow computer :P02:05

holsteinbroimfromafrika: it?02:05

MadOtisanyone have any other suggestions to try and get it installed?02:05
broimfromafrikaholstein: The pastebinit packages02:05
Jordan_Udtmbmw325i: Please pastebin the output of "ls".02:05

holsteinbroimfromafrika: if you want to pastebin something from the command line, you'll need that, otherwise, its got nothing to do with grub02:06
FrankyMad0tis: what are you trying to do? Sorry, I wasn't paying attention :P02:07

MadOtisFranky: I am to Ubuntu, too... been using Gentoo for years and want something that isn't going to break every week or so, now02:08
zulaxnever realized that, how do i get a driver for it02:08
holsteinFranky: what operating system?... ubuntu? xubuntu? 11.01?02:08
Frankyholstein: xubuntu02:09
ksx4systemholstein: after apt-get install iceweasel I get usual three lines and then "Note, selecting 'firefox instead of 'iceweasel' "02:09
ksx4systemholstein: then it tells me that I have latest possible Firefox (which is true - I've just hit apt-get upgrade)02:09
FrankyMad0tis: lol, yeah. I would recommend Xubuntu. Super speedy and kind of like windows. :)02:09

fabiobikhow to make an reset of my ubuntu 11.10?02:31
fabiobikmake it like fresh install02:31
acerimmerfabiobik: you mean the settings and configurations or the installed apps?02:31
fabiobikacerimmer: all02:32
Stanley00fabiobik: maybe reinstall reinstall02:32
fabiobikStanley00: is that an command?02:32
Stanley00fabiobik: no, I mean reinstall from live cd/usb02:33
acerimmerfabiobik: you'll have to manually apt-get purge the apps you added.  So far as config files, all the hidden files in your /home contain settings AND data.  You could delete those, but be awar that any/all data will also go away02:33
fabiobikacerimmer: dont you think 11.10 has buggy02:34
fabiobikim trying to install zf but gives errors02:34
acerimmerfabiobik: I wouldn't know.  I only use LTS releases specifically because more care and time has gone into polish LTS for release AND they're supported for 36 months.02:34
ubottufabiobik: LTS means Long Term Support. LTS versions of Ubuntu will be supported for 3 years on the desktop, and 5 years on the server. The current LTS version of Ubuntu is !Lucid (Lucid Lynx 10.04)02:35
scientes_someone update that02:35

ubottufabiobik: I am only a bot, please don't think I'm intelligent :)02:35
acerimmerfabiobik: I wouldn't say (un)stable.  Interim, i.e. non-LTS could be considered more cutting edge and experimental.  You take some risks for the newest toys...02:36

Nerdusvery good tip, thanks03:36
fizyplanktondoes anyone know why my comp wont upload any mildly large amount of data on the internet? small amounts (a few hundred bytes at most. yes bytes, not kb mb nor gb. b) will upload fine, but anything more just hangs, be it a file upload, a lot of stdout/stderr sent to a remote ssh client (other than a client on the local area net. that works fine), a mercurial changeset im trying to push, a long facebook post/comment, an app03:36
xjiowezi typed it in as i had it written down03:37

duvelCan anyone please tell me how to enable SLI in ubuntu 11.10 (I am running two GTX 560's)03:38
dRounseFranky: So heres what to do.... install lubuntu from the software center or synaptic, log out and sign on in Lubuntu or LXDE then go to synaptic and remove Xubuntu-desktop, and Xfce, it might say that you cannot03:38
fizyplanktonFranky: iv tried both firefox and chrome (normal beta and dev) on both comps03:38
dRounseFranky: so i would download the ubuntu software center and remove from there, sometimes thats easy03:38
dRounseFranky: then use this http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/purelxde03:39
FrankydRounse: Okay. I'll try that. I'm going to first test to see if I can get Ubuntu off and keep Xubuntu. Thank you03:39
Frankyfizzyplankton: Try to look into your browser's settings. Perhaps you have a funky setting limiting the size of the pages?03:40
dRounseFranky: no problem..... you can remove ubuntu from xfce, type in google "pure xubuntu" and it will bring you to a similiar link i gave you but for xubuntu03:40
FrankydRounse: Can I just uninstall Ubuntu from Synaptic?03:40
fizyplanktonFranky: neither comp nor browser has anything like that. when i used to use windows and chrome, it worked fine. and its not only a browser issue. ssh stdout/stderr, apport, mercurial, nothing uploads more than a few hundred bytes03:41
fizyplanktonFranky: also, my username only has one z. type that so it pings me03:41
peeps[lappy]how do you see which repo a package is from03:42
WoCfizyplankton, are your nic and switch both made by intel ?03:42

CharminTheMooseCould I break the proper running of my system if I accidently remove a bunch of stuff via rm -rv as root in /proc?03:43

dRounseFranky: that website is if you want pure xubuntu, like straight from the cd03:43
CharminTheMooseOh goody then. :(03:43
dRounsei want to be a sys admin, should i get a degree from itt tech or a community college03:44

peeps[lappy]if i do sudo add-apt-repository, is it supposed to go into /etc/apt/sources.list03:46
duvelmy graphics performance is sub par, and i have 2x GTX 560's03:46

zykotick9peeps[lappy]: nope, check /etc/apt/source.list.d/ (i think)03:46

duvelim in america, if you arent making money in america you're a douchebag.03:48

WoCor a lower enlisted03:48
dRounseduvel: watch the language03:48
peeps[lappy]zykotick9, do you know how to tell which repo an installed package comes from?03:48
duvelim running an i7-2700k processor, 16 gb of DDR3 ram, 2 EVGA GTX 560's , etc etc. my hardware is top notch03:49
holsteinduvel: you can always try different kernels by loading up live CD's, and also trying the different graphics drivers available03:49
dRounseduvel: whats the point of all that hardware?03:49
zykotick9peeps[lappy]: use "apt-cache policy foo" foo being the package name03:49
duveli edit video and do graphic design03:49
WoCduvel, i trust you are running a 64 bit distro, right ?03:49
duvelof course03:50
WoCjust checking, u be surprised03:50
duveli understand ;)03:50
dRounseWoC: well he could be doing 32-bit03:50
WoCwith 16 ?03:50
holsteinsometimes, the realtime kernels can cause issues, are you using *-lowlatency ? or RT?03:50
holsteinduvel: ^03:50
greenI'm having trouble booting to my second computer it says/root/dev failed no such file or directory and /root/sys failed no such file or directory any help?03:50
duvelholstein i have no idea. how can i check03:50
dRounseWoC: yes because Linux would switch to the PAE kernel allowing 64 gb of ram03:50
duvelso you're telling me I dont need to use 64 bit ubuntu?03:51
WoCbut still no more than 3 gb per allocation unit03:51
holsteinduvel: you can run uname -a in the terminal to see what kernel you are running, but the last time a kernel like that was in the repos was 10.04, so if you didnt install one, you dont have one03:51
showtimeu want 64bit !03:51
NerdusDoes anyone know a download manager program, a type GetRight windows for example?, Which is available for ubuntu?03:52
dRounseduvel: no you dont need to Ubuntu will only install PAE kernel if it detects you are using more than 4 gb of ram03:52
WoConly if you have need for more than 3 gb in one allocation unit, duvel03:52
dRounseand i prefer 32-bit03:52
duvelmy point exactly. Ive been trying to load 10.04 ubuntu but the graphics drivers dont work!!!!!!03:52
duveli detest unity03:52
duvelto the highest extent03:52
hiexpo32 bit is actually better03:52
* fizyplankton high fives duvel 03:52
holsteinNerdus: i use wget from the command line..03:52
dRounseWoC: no the PAE kernel allows more than 3-4 GB of RAM03:52
kaenunrelated note: 12.04 kicks ass already03:52
WoCin one allocated segment ?03:52
duveli have to reboot03:53
duveli just updated03:53
duvelill see if this works.03:53
Nerdusok HOlstein thanks03:53
CarolynHi! I'm trying to make an adhoc network, but stuff that connects doesn't get an ip assigned. How can I turn on dhcp?03:53
hiexpowhy no need to reboot ever unless you changing kerna l03:54
dRounseWoC: 32-bit allows 4 gb of ram, 64-bit allows 120 gb of ram, but the PAE kernel for 32-bit makes it a 36-bit, allowing for 64 gb of rma03:54
Carolynomg this should be easy for you guys!!03:55
WoCdRounse, I heard that the catch is that you can not allocated more than 3 gb ram in one block using pae03:55
ubottuTo use more than ~3.2GB RAM on a 32bit system you can install the PAE-enabled kernel. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/EnablingPAE for more info03:55
zykotick9dRounse: too bad PAE is a "hack" that has a negative impact regardless if your benefitting from additional ram or not...03:56
duvelokay, i'm back.03:56
NerdusWOW, In this case 64 the system has greater capacity data management ok? dRounse?03:56
dRounseWoC: its not a hack, Ubuntu will auto kick in if it detects more than 3 gb of RAM, its a hack on windows03:56
duvelwindows is a pile of garbage.03:56
Carolyni beginning to think linux is a pice of garbage03:57
holsteinduvel: some folks use windows here...03:57
ubottuFor discussion on Microsoft software, or help with same, please visit ##windows. See http://launchpad.net/distros/ubuntu/+bug/1 http://linux.oneandoneis2.org/LNW.htm and /msg ubottu equivalents03:57
dRounseNerdus: Well yes because 64-bit can handle 120 gb, 32-bit can hand 3 or 403:57
holsteinCarolyn: you can try https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WifiDocs/Adhoc03:57
draganchoHello fellas, I m having problem on a PC build 4-5 years ago. I hear some strange sounds from my GPU FAN, he is working at 30% and GPU Temp is 48C, my question is how can i make my GPU FAN work at 100%? Best regards.03:57
Carolyni tried those instructions holstein to the letter, but like I said all self assigned ip's on the clients03:58
dRounseNerdus: but the PAE kernel makes it 36-bit, kinda03:58
WoCdRounse, I just use 64 bit for my lap, 4 gb ram, from what i can tell in the kernel document it actually _is_ faster03:58
Carolynit's like there is no dhcp turned on in linux03:58
dtmbmw325iCarolyn, you can install dhcp3-server and see where it takes you03:58
Chotazwhat web development IDe do you guys recommend?03:58
Nerdussystem will have better performance?03:58
NerdusI think if I change the system that I use this machine for a 64-bit system will have better performance?03:58
ChotazNerdus: yes x86_64 is better than x8603:59
dRounseWoC: yea but if you used 32bit youd be able to use that ram, i always use 32-bit even with more than 4 gb of ram03:59

ubottudhcp is Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol, a protocol for automatic IP assignment from a router. Ubuntu uses dhclient as a DHCP client but other ones (and DHCP servers too) can be obtained from the !repos. More info at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DHCP03:59

NerdusChotaz :Thanks for the tip04:00
holsteinduvel: sometimes, you compromise something using one or the other04:00
dRounseChotaz: personally there is a lot more dev and time put into the 32-bit, so it usually works better04:00
acerimmerdragancho: fans are cheap.  I'd say buy a new one04:00
dRounseNerdus: id use 32-bit, less problems04:00
bobenhauswhen I do apt-get upgrade does that update with just the new updates that are available. or all of the software?04:01
NerdusI'll try the system in 64-bit, see what I can win here04:01
holsteinbobenhaus: not sure i follow... you get updated packages *if* there are any04:02
mernilioGreetings! men woman, woman and children!04:02
bobenhausholstein:  doing apt-get update is the same as doing the software manager in ubuntu?04:02
zykotick9bobenhaus: "apt-get upgrade" installs all updates available from repo, that isn't new software.  For the same as the GUI Update Manager, use "sudo apt-get dist-upgrade" instead.04:02
bobenhauszykotick9: thanks :)04:02

bobenhausmernilio: im getting a 404 error from software manager and if I type apt-get update .  should I remove the source?04:03
holsteinfrom what i read, dist-upgrade allows you to update packages across different repos and/or PPA's04:03
merniliodRounse: sure!04:03
Nerdusah ok WoC04:04
bobenhausholstein:  thanks04:04
merniliopeeps[lappy]: from the HQ in south africa.04:04

merniliobobenhaus: im not sure.04:04
bobenhausmernilio: the ppa for firefox is given me the error04:05
zykotick9holstein: dist-upgrade is replaceable by full-upgrade, they're both the same command04:05

holsteinmassive__: you can install gnome, but its not gnome2 anymore... XFCE is arguablyt the most like gnome2 was04:32
metasansanapfifo: can I use single files instead of the entire volume?04:32
zykotick9thetinyjesus: it's not simple, that's for sure.  The #debian factoid for irssi starts "it has been said that irssi is the best <IRC> client ever...."04:32
pfifogod-zotac, do you have an issue at this point?04:32
holsteinthetinyjesus: depends... i still google for some commands if i need.. for settings or whatever i have forgotten04:32
massive__Ok.  I did install gnome.  But, nothing changed.  So, I was wondering how to go back and forth if I wanted to.  Thank you.04:33
god-zotacpfifo:: i don't yet, but i haven't rebooted the new kernel. i know that the custom kernel won't load the fglrx module that was built for a different kernel revision.04:33
ses1984i have a system that hangs 50% of the way through installing updates. it hangs on "running dpkg". the entire system becomes screwed. the desktop apps start behaving wildly weird. how can i back out of this cleanly?04:33
pfifometasansana, encrypt everything04:33
holsteinmassive__: you can logout, and choose there, in the greeter04:33
whoeverksx4system: you should be able to edit the build file , they probably conflict or build them from source04:33
massive__Thanks holstein!  :)04:33
thetinyjesuswell like, if someone was to send me a messsage how would i know, i mean i know i can screen change alt-arrow or number but is there a way to tell04:33
pfifogod-zotac, you need to build fglrx from source04:33
pfifogod-zotac, after rebooting04:34
fizyplanktonthetinyjesus: the status bar near the bottom has a [act: pink_window_number] for a ping, a white number for activity, and a grey number for just logon/off activity04:34
god-zotacpfifo:: ok so is there a particular way to do that on ubuntu? just download the tar.gz for fglrx or is there a way to use apt to grab and build the source code for my custom kernel?04:34
pfifogod-zotac, get your kernel working first, thats step #1 and you can have grub switch between the 2 for now04:34
zykotick9thetinyjesus: do you mean notification, outside of irssi?  Inside irssi, it colour indicates channel if your nick is used.04:35

pfifogod-zotac, custom kernels and building from source are outside the realm of ubuntu04:35
god-zotacpfifo:: i know how to build a kernel and get it working, thats not the question i had. i want to know the recommended way to install fglrx from source for a custom kernel04:35
fizyplanktonthetinyjesus: and if tou want outside of irssi notification, you can use screen and do ^a M04:35
holsteinhex20dec: i iwould go ahead and get started, and ask more specific quiestions when you need...04:36
pfifogod-zotac, right, get your kernel ready and working, then build fglrx, the fglrx build will probbally bork your native fglrx, but hey, thats the idea right?04:36
WoCdns53, Seems like 10.10 is the last version, no server version though04:36
god-zotacregardless of the realm of ubuntu, i want to use ubuntu for compatibility of packages and a wide selection, and i don't want to compile everything from source, just my kernel and proprietary driver04:37
god-zotacit shouldn't break anything native, it should install the fglrx module to each kernel lib04:37
hex20decholstein I would, but here are so many problems and I have read a lot of articles about how to set it up and it's really complicated. I was hoping someone would help me set it up for the basics by simplifying things a bit.04:37
AndroUserHey im using mint debian. Just installed kde and it doesnt seem like its detecting my wireless card any more. Any ideas?04:38
pfifogod-zotac, ive never tried, but im guessing Xorg will complain04:38
hex20decholstein there*04:38
god-zotacas with installing any other kind of module.. i'm not exactly new at anything here. im just wondering what the recommended way for installing proprietary drivers in ubuntu is if you use a custom kernel04:38
god-zotacusing a custom kernel with ubuntu in combination with proprietary drivers shouldn't be that uncommon, or at least i wouldn't think it would be04:38
pfifogod-zotac, the 'recommended' way for ubuntu is to NOT do what your doing ;) use the gentoo way04:39
holsteinhex20dec: other than pointing you to some documentation, im not going to be more helpful.. you could try the mailing lists/forums, or some of the server channels04:39
urlin2uAndroUser, mint debian on the ubuntu support channel now what's wrong with this statement. :)04:39
greenI'm having trouble booting to my second computer it says/root/dev failed no such file or directory and /root/sys failed no such file or directory any help?04:39

WoCgod-zotac, thats wht i am doing, i just put a hold on one installed generic kernel to prevent it from being updated, removed all others but one that i customized myself04:39

god-zotacWoC do you use fglrx?04:40
pfifogod-zotac, you can build a custom kernel and fglrx no problem, in case you havent seen it before make ubottu list the info for '!kernel'04:40
WoCNope, no ati hw at all04:40
hex20decholstein: thanks a lot. =]04:40
blackboxdoes anybody know of any free CAD based software that will allow me to do the equivalent of what autocad, pro engieer, and now CATIA can do.04:41
ubottuThe core of Ubuntu is the Linux kernel: see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Kernel - You shouldn't have to compile your own, and if you need to troubleshoot issues, you can try a !Mainline kernel instead, but if you insist, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Kernel/Compile (see also !Stages)04:41
god-zotacpfifo:: blah..04:41
god-zotac- pfifo04:41
god-zotacthat is wrong,  if you have a need for a custom kernel, then you will need to compile your own04:42
holsteinblackbox: what can they do?... blender is popular, and quite well supported04:42
WoCin my case, i cant use the generic kernel after 3.2.0-10, the config changed04:42
pfifogod-zotac, there really is nothing more that can be recommended besides that.. i would check gentoo wiki or LFS book04:42
god-zotaci.e. specific iptables / netfilter settings04:42
lorddeltaAny startup gurus in here? I want to know why gnome-panel is starting up when I run kde (from kdm, too)04:42
god-zotacgentoo / lfs doesn't tell about compatibiltiy issues with .deb packages or things being broken later04:43
AndroUserBlackbox i dont remember of the top of my head but there is a website with loads of alternate apps for linux. Google it... cant be too hard to find04:43
lorddeltaI seem to remember editing some system file a long time ago, but that was before I knew what /etc/ was, or most of the configuration stuff...04:43
blackboxbut blender or (the payed version maya) or not CAD based programs like auto cad ,... I am more interested in architecture not 3D animation/pixel art04:43
pfifogod-zotac, no, if you need some kind of netfilter setings in the kernel you file a bug report and let the devs release a new kernel covering it, yeah i know thats not really the fastest way, but debian isnt really made you be uber customizable.04:44
lorddeltaI'd be even more appreciative if someone could let me know a method to figure this out on my own that doesn't involve me reading 10 different init manuals...04:44
blackboxthings that engineers , architect , and blue print designer would use04:44
blackboxnot 3D moive an animators04:45
god-zotacpfifo:: such encouragement of why  not to use ubuntu/debian :)04:45
holsteinblackbox: other than pointing you here http://www.tech-edv.co.at/05_LUnIx/80_CAD~2f3d/10_CAD~20Links/index.php where you've probably been, youd just need to start trying some FOSS alternatives04:45
holsteini have not needed to do CAD, though i work with ubuntustudio and we are interested in supporting that workflow, assuming we had users to test04:46
pfifogod-zotac, Im sure you use it for the same reason as many of use, no hassle installs of a stable system04:46
god-zotaca custom kernel is all i am wanting, i dont care about optimized cflags for userland packages04:46
blackboxthanks I think that is what I needed04:46
holsteinfeel free to join https://lists.ubuntu.com/mailman/listinfo/ubuntu-studio-users and/or https://lists.ubuntu.com/mailman/listinfo/ubuntu-studio-devel blackbox04:46
god-zotacpfifo:: fyi i am very well experienced with gentoo/funtoo ;)04:46
holsteinblackbox: we have a channel too #ubuntustudio ... but again, you'll be helping us help folks like yourself, probably not finding help there necessarily04:47
pfifogod-zotac, really, other than what ubottu said about !kernel, there isnt too much else to say, no one really uses custom kernels unless they have to. anyway like i said, the way to go is to get the kernel running, then build fglrx. and hope you dont break anything along the way ;)04:48
blackboxsure I will take a look some time I appreciate the help holstein04:48
pfifogod-zotac, if you know dpkg/apt well you could fetch the kernel sources from the repos and start with the official patched source of the kernel of you choice04:49
pfifo(thats covered in that link)04:49
god-zotacpfifo:: is there an apt command that will pull the fglrx sources and build it based on the running kernel, and keep a record of the .deb file for installation?04:49

jenderswould somebody care to explain the difference between linux-image-server and linux-image-3.0.0-15-server. I kind of assume linux-image-server is a virtual "tracking" stable whereas linux-image-3.0.0-15-server is "pinning" a specific kernel release. Is that accurate?04:55

jendersi guess, there's fear here that the running kernel could be removed from disk during an upgrade. I'm trying to understand the mechanism that might instate that05:03
zykotick9urlin2u: your "distro upgrade" is very close to dist-upgrade, which doesn't have anything to do with going from 11.04 to 11.10 (for example)05:03
jendersit doesn't seem like that would be a very good policy, but might make sense if one was tracking linux-image-server instead of a specific release05:03
urlin2uzykotick9, just using the same description distro upgrade I saw ikonia use today. :)05:04

lotuspsychjeCarolyn: please repost your question, the real experts are in the house now05:39
angiewow thank you ubottu05:39
ChotazAfter changing the hosts file, how do I make the changes to take effect?05:39
damo22Chotaz: its instant05:40
scientes_where can i download the debian-installer images for arm?05:41
Chotazdamo22: would site.local work ?05:41
Russiandamo22:  like this? --> lspci -nnvv |grep [xxxx:xxxx]        ?05:41
damo22Russian: no, exactly like this: lspci -nnvv |grep "VGA compatible"05:41
zykotick9Chotaz: i'd remove the "/site" and retry05:41
Chotazzykotick9: that aprt already works but i have many sites on my www folder, how can I point to a specific one?05:42
Russiandamo22: oke, I'll reboot brb thanks a lot05:43
damo22Russian: no05:43
zykotick9Chotaz: oh damb, i've done that before but don't remember how... sorry.  For vhosts type stuff right?05:43
xSmurfanyone with experience with cryptsetup hooks?05:43
damo22Russian: it wont do anything05:43
Chotazzykotick9: exactly05:43
xSmurfshouldn't /lib/cryptsetup/askpass | echo # display the pass?05:44
* damo22 facepalm05:44
xSmurfand/or is there a better tool to genre user passwords from the hooks?05:44
CarolynWhen AdHoc networking automatically configures dnsmasq for you, is there anyway to turn on logging? No config in /etc.05:44
CarolynTrying to debug issues with it.05:44
lotuspsychjeCarolyn: maybe something to find in /var/log05:45
CarolynIf requests are turned on, they're supposed to be in daemon.log, but it doesn't exist.05:46
Russiandamo22: I still get the TTY screen for 10.04 LTS, if I don't do anything for about 15-30 seconds, it switches to login screen05:46
damo22Russian: i didnt ask you to reboot05:47
damo22Russian: you still havent given me the numbers05:47
Russiandamo22: Aah, my bad.05:47
damo22Russian: the command was not going to do anything except query your pci bus for devices05:48
Carolyndnsmasq is showing to start up ok in the syslog, but clients on an adhoc network are not receiving ip addresses. Without requests being logged hard to debug.05:48
CarolynI'm about ready to stab ubuntu in the eye.05:48
lotuspsychjeCarolyn: no router that blocks it?05:48
Carolynlotus - The workaround for firestarter blocking dhcp appears to have worked.05:49
Russiandamo22: oke, got it, I sent you in pm.05:49
CarolynBut still no ip addresses being assigned to adhoc clients.05:49
damo22Russian: i cant recieve pm05:49
damo22Russian: its only 1 line paste it here05:50

damo22Russian: so its a GeForce GTX 58005:51
Russiandamo22: yeah, I said that a while ago >.<05:52
Carolynlotus, adhoc networking uses dnsmasq as a dhcp server lite.05:52
Russiandamo22: EVGA GTX 58005:52
CarolynI'm trying to share an ethernet connection with a laptop over wifi.05:52
lotuspsychjeCarolyn: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Dnsmasq05:53
damo22Russian: what is the error?05:53
Russiandamo22: There is no error as far as I can tell. Everything worked fine for me, but after I reset my bios and reconfigured (because I had to reset my password), ubuntu started booting directly into TTY instead of login window.05:54
CarolynThat doesn't help, lotus.  Ubuntu automatically configures dnsmasq for you, when you create an adhoc network.05:54
CarolynAnd it doesn't appear to use /etc/dnsmasq.conf at all, as it doesn't exist.05:54
damo22Russian: so are you in console now?05:55
Russiandamo22: Now I have to sit and wait while ubuntu is at the TTY window requiring my username/password, if I just ignore that and wait a while it loads the login screen.05:55
lotuspsychjeCarolyn: what about this: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WifiDocs/Adhoc05:55
Russiandamo22: no, right now I am fully loaded05:55
Russiandamo22:  with GUI and all05:55
damo22Russian: possibly it is using a different video driver now05:56

CarolynNothing in there about getting dnsmaq to log requests when adhoc networks automatically configure dnsmaq.05:56
Russiandamo22: hmm, how to verify? I can open and configure the nvidia server settings just fine so far05:56
CarolynAnd that's what I need, desperatly.05:56
damo22Russian: im not sure05:57
Russiandamo22: ooh check this out, when I booted into TTY, once I tried to loggin in with my username and password and after that I hit /startx and it booted me directly into ubuntu, but after like 20 seconds or so I got the loggin screen and I had already a session running, but I had to enter my password in order to continue, does that help at all?05:58
hydrox24damo22: should we get Russian to run a bootchart?05:59
Russiandamo22: it seems like something delays the login screen05:59
hydrox24damo22: It would help tremendously... unless it doesn't go as high-level as X05:59
* damo22 takes a back seat on this one06:00
lotuspsychjeCarolyn: nothing in var/log/dnsmasq?06:00
* hydrox24 doesn06:00
* hydrox24 doesn't want to get involved but will anyway :)06:01
CarolynIt doesn't exist lotus.  I keep telling you that.06:01
hydrox24Russian: do you use Grub (AKA do you it whenever you boot?06:01
Russianhydrox24: not as far as I know, Ubuntu is my only OS06:02
CarolynIt is not logging requests, there is no config file.  Ubuntu is doing it all under the covers and I am ready to go back to windows.  It sucks, but at least it fucking works.06:02
Russianhydrox24: so I boot into it automatically without any options06:02
hydrox24ok, hold on. That just means there is one extra step to showing the GRUB2 menu I think06:02
Russianhydrox24: oke06:02
hydrox24Russian: so you use 11.10? And was it a clean install or an upgrade?06:02
lotuspsychjeCarolyn: just stick around a few, there's always a solution for anything06:03
Russianhydrox24: I use 10.04 LTS (because of the stability and security) clean install.06:03
acerimmerRussian: likewise here06:03
Russianhydrox24: well I've added addons like Gloobus and Nautilus Elements06:03
damo22theres a local root exploit for > 2.6.3906:03
Russianacerimmer: cool ;]06:04
hydrox24Russian that's fine, when we go through the reboot, you need to hold shift to show GRUB06:04
Russianhydrox24:  oke and after that?06:04
hydrox24damo22: do you mean 2.6.39 and below? cos I think that that's < 2.6.3906:05
damo22no above06:05
hydrox24you need to find the normal line for ubuntu (without any "safe-boot" appended etc) and hit the "e" key to edit the kernel boot line06:05
hydrox24damo22: :/ wow, and when is it gonna be fixed?06:05
Russianhydrox24: oke and after that?06:06
lotuspsychjeCarolyn: not all wifi cards support adhoc: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WifiDocs/Adhoc#Supported_Cards06:06
damo22its fixed but i dont know which version of 3 its fixed in06:06
hydrox24Russian: wait, you aren't doing this as I speak are you?06:06
hydrox24Russian: because you need to install the bootchart program first...06:06
Russianhydrox24: no, but I memorized it.06:06
hydrox24you'll need to add this "init=/sbin/bootchartd" to the end of the line that starts with "kernel"06:07
hydrox24first, run this command on the machine you'll be analyzing:06:07
hydrox24wait, scratch that06:08
hydrox24just go here: http://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2010/06/use-bootchart-to-find-out-how-long-ubuntu-takes-to-start-on-your-computer/06:08
RussianI already installed bootchart and bootchartqui06:08
hydrox24Russian: and did you do that before the last reboot?06:09
Russian=], thanks anyway06:09
Russianhydrox24: no, just now ^^06:09
hydrox24now reboot :)06:09
hydrox24you don't need to do any of the stuff I said before,06:09

ShirakawasunaWhat is the best way to install beta nvidia drivers? (e.g. which ppa to choose)06:09
hydrox24that was just for arch... (fail) :)06:09
hydrox24Shirakawasuna: not sure, but the nvidia website offers very up-tp-dat binaries?06:10
hydrox24Russian: ?06:10
jefimenkoi just followed the java6transition instructions and now i have no java binary06:10
jefimenkoi followed https://wiki.ubuntu.com/LucidLynx/ReleaseNotes/Java6Transition06:10
Russianhydrox24: I presume I still need to add the init line right?06:10
hydrox24Russian: no, sorry06:10
ShirakawasunaI think nvidia supplies a horribly ugly script06:10
Shirakawasunaa ppa is *much* nicer06:11
Russianhydrox24:  aah, so what do I do?06:11
hydrox24Russian: just reboot, no fancy stuff. I was reading instructions for Arch linux :/06:11
Russianheh oke06:11
lotuspsychjeCarolyn: does your laptop have a broadcom wifi card?06:11
RussianBe right back and thanks in advance06:11
ShirakawasunaI just need nvidia 290.* until it his stable06:11
Shirakawasunathere's a bug in previous versions that prevents booting06:11
hydrox24Shirakawasuna: OK, let me look into that06:12
jefimenkohow can i get my java binary back06:12
frybyeShirakawasuna: I have tried again and again to get a GT240 to work - are you saying I need a beta nvidia linux driver or?06:13
CarolynThat's why I'm trying to turn on request logging so I can debug it.  But I can't, because unbuntu configures dnsmasq for me.06:13
pangolinCarolyn: please mind the language06:13
vanjefimenko: what happened to your java binary?06:13
Shirakawasunafrybye: Not necessarily. My issue only affects Geforce 9300 IGP cards06:14
zykotick9Shirakawasuna: i assume you tried nomodeset unsuccessfully?06:15
Shirakawasunazykotick9: yep. It's definitely a driver problem06:15
frybyeShirakawasuna: well I will perhaps give it a go06:15
Shirakawasunafixed in the 290.* series06:15
ShirakawasunaI just want a nice, clean way to install the beta nvidia driver06:15
RussianI am back.06:16
hydrox24Shirakawasuna: what is the name of your nvidia card?06:16
Shirakawasunaa way that allows me to easily go back to the standard package when it his 290.*+06:16
Shirakawasunahydrox24: geforce 9300 IGP06:16
lotuspsychjeCarolyn: did you manually config etc/dnsmasq.conf?06:16
hydrox24Russian: ok, now look in /var/log/bootchart.png06:16
Russianhydrox24:  yeah, found it, uploading onemoment06:16
zykotick9Shirakawasuna: it appears the xorg-edgers PPA has 29506:17
CarolynLotus - no.  I repeat, there  is no etc/dnsmasq.conf.  Ubuntu configures dnsmasq automatigically under the covers when you set up an adhoc.06:17
hydrox24Shirakawasuna: you x64 or x8606:18
Shirakawasunazykotick9: I think xorg-edgers brings a lot of stuff I don't want...06:18
zykotick9Shirakawasuna: probably true06:18
Shirakawasunahydrox24: x64. I appreciate the help, but are you going to nvidia.com and finding the driver? I found that already, I just don't like their scripts06:18
zykotick9Shirakawasuna: but installing direct from nvidia, will re06:18
lotuspsychjeCarolyn: thats really weird..there's gotta be a conf somewhere right and logs06:19
hydrox24Shirakawasuna: ah, OK, so what's your issue then?06:19
CarolynYeah it's using a template somehwere, but I have no clue where.06:19
ShirakawasunaI'll try this ppa: https://launchpad.net/~ubuntu-x-swat/+archive/x-updates06:19
Shirakawasunabring sin less stuff06:19
pnormanI'm looking for a reference for growing a RAID10 array with mdadm, but not finding anything - anyone know of one?06:19
Shirakawasunahydrox24: I strongly prefer a ppa/debs, but can't seem to find anything dedicated to just the nvidia stuff.06:19
hydrox24Shirakawasuna: yeh, I guess it06:20
Shirakawasunae.g. when I used arch, I'd just install the nvidia-beta package (user-contributed) and it integrated nicely with the package manager. No mess.06:20
hydrox24Shirakawasuna: yeh, I guess it's because there isn't much demand for a nvidia beta ppa06:20
jefimenkovan: i followed https://wiki.ubuntu.com/LucidLynx/ReleaseNotes/Java6Transition to replace sun-java6 with openjdk-606:20
Shirakawasunaso that when I decide to go back to vanilla it's clean06:20
jefimenkovan: now i have no java binary06:20
Shirakawasunawoo, that ppa seems to have worked06:20
Shirakawasunabah, it's using nouveau, n/m >_<06:20
jefimenkovan: i ran "sudo apt-get install openjdk-6-jre icedtea6-plugin" after removing the sun-java6 packages06:21
Russianhydrox24: check pm06:21
ShirakawasunaI'll just install nvidia's stupid .run package06:21
vanjefimenko: just fyi, you dont have to remove a java version to install another one...06:22
vanjefimenko: all can install as many java binary, but only need to set on as default06:22
jefimenkovan: ok, well i was following the instructions06:22

vanjefimenko; ok, so now did the openjdk-6 installed failed or something?06:24
jefimenkovan: no it seems to be installed06:24

Shirakawasunafrybye: open a terminal, then go to the directory with the file (cd /path/to/file). To run it, type ./nvidia-whatever-etc-etc-.run. If this doesn't work, make it executable using chmod +x06:30
zykotick9acerimmer: i'd GUESS no, but you could just install it after06:30

jefimenkovan: http://paste.ubuntu.com/829736/06:32
frybyeShirakawasuna: gave error - must be run as root - ??06:32
blackboxI am wanting to program graphics and somebody told me to use opengl.... but I don't think I have it on this system so I want to install it. I am using c/c++ as my programming language06:32
frybyeis there such a command as sudo ./nvidia******?06:33
hydrox24blackbox: no, why can't you just install it using apt-get, what error does it give?06:33
jigspanwhy my computer shut down incomplete?06:33

blackboxE: Unable to locate package opengl06:33
blackboxsudo apt-get install opengl06:34
hydrox24blackbox: that just means that there isn't a package available for opengl, you'll have to install it another eay06:34
zykotick9frybye: (i don't think manually installing nvidia is a good idea) BUT, are you running in Xorg still?  Cause the installer is going to want X stopped before it will proceed, and yes, you need to use sudo06:34
blackboxI don't know what repo to add if it is not in the standard ones06:34
vanjefimenko: thats funny, "update-alternatives" should do the trick... let me get back to you06:34
frybyeShirakawasuna: back to problem one - it says there is no supported nvidia card in the pc - i know that cos if I put the gt240 in the screen is unusable...06:35
ChotazHow do I add a virtualhost on lamp?06:35
frybyeShirakawasuna: like a chicken and egg problem.. card with no driver not screen - driver with no card not installable???06:35
jigspanand why selection menu appear each time on booting?06:35
frybyezykotick9: what other way to install it???06:36
vanjefimenko: meanwhile, what "$which java" output is?06:36
jigspani have shutdown problem with ubuntu 11.1006:36
zykotick9frybye: you need to install from command line (VT) after shutting down xorg06:36
vanjefimenko: if there is any... where does it points to?  "$ls -l $(which java)06:36
frybyeI put the card in the pc and no matter what I do i just get a mess of a screen - without the card it works with the ati 3000 onboard06:36
frybyezykotick9: but there is still the problem that it wants the card in there...06:37
Shirakawasunafrybye: when you download the nvidia installer, you have to make sure you get the right one. You may have accidentally downloaded the wrong one.06:37
zykotick9frybye: do you have the propritary ATI driver installed?  cause cause conflict if you do.06:37
jigspanis there solution for my problem?06:37
syddrafDoes anyone know how to use Compiz with Xubuntu?06:37
blackboxI don't see opengl in synaptic ... I do see other things though but I have alot of books and resource example in opengl in c /c++ so I was wondering where I can get it install it. Correct me if I am wrong but it should just be a library .so files and h files that go in /usr/lib/ or something then since I have the path already in the standard $PATH variable it should be enough to tell the compile and include the header for it06:37
Shirakawasunafrybye: e.g. I know that my card is the geforce 9 series 9300 (ion) card06:37

frybyeShirakawasuna: I got the linux driver for the gt240 direct from nvidia - the installer seems to work except it complains the card is not in...06:38
xanguasyddraf: then you did not install gtk decorator06:38
frybyezykotick9: I will de-install the prop. driver .. and try again...06:39
zykotick9xangua: more likely, 3d support isn't active06:39
blackboxproblem is I don't know how to go about installing it would like to either get it thru synaptic or apt-get it. rather then have to manually download a tar extract it and install it or a dpkg -i thing06:39
blackboxis their an equivalent name for opengl maybe libopengl their is just to many choices in synaptic and I don't know what the correct one is06:40

WoCpnorman, you prolly get both better performance and reliability using raid5 than you have using raid10, mirroring is more likely to just mirror corrupted data should it occur... at least that is what i have seen07:01

pnormanWoC: Googling says that md RAID10 arrays can't be grown, but that might be outdated. I know RAID5 can be grown07:10
WoCpnorman, sounds like it may be true about 10, as you would need to grow both the master and the mirror simultaneously07:11

ChotazIs it possible to use a command in terminal to do the following? : check every subdir inside directory A and delete these subdirs inside directory B07:12

hydrox24Chotaz: what is the dirB relative to A exactly? or no relationship?07:14
ChotazI have 2 folders inside my external HDD one with 80 subdirs, another with 40 subdirs07:15
Chotaza:80, b:40, all the folders in b are also in a, I want all folders that are in already in b and a at the same time to be deleted07:16
WoCChotaz, oh07:17
Chotazi want it so A only keeps the subdirs that are not in B07:17
Chotazim not sure im making myself clear07:17

zerothishow do i make my already paired & connected bluetooth headset my default sound device?07:21
acerimmerChotaz: 10.04 allows GUEST session i.e. no access or permissions to do anything critical07:22
WoCChotaz, both A and B are sub-dirs in the same directory ? and You do want to keep only one unique copy of each directory, correct ?07:23
Chotazthe A and B dirs are completely apart and far inside the hdd07:25
Chotazmy ideia is to delete every subdirectory from B that already exists in A07:26
superdave_Getting some weird crap on boot... http://pic.twitter.com/D0tGLyj7 This disallows boot to continue and never gets to gui. any ideas?07:26
WoCChotaz, quick and dirty would be to just move all the dirs in B to A, overwriting any duplicates; leaving you with just one version lest ofc the dir structure is different07:27
WoCand ofc assuming you have the free space for it07:28
pnormanI suppose I could move all my drives to the hardware RAID card, but that would be a *lot* of work :/07:28
ChotazWoC: I dont want to lose this structure and I'm not sure if I have the space even07:28

hypnocati have a bit of a problem:  it seems my machine doesn't have an /etc/sources.list and /etc/apt/sources.list.d is empty... how can i properly populate these?09:08
zykotick9sbarcteam: last time i saw that "open/closed/defer/.." was on Linux Mint Debian Edition - i waited for 4+ hours before giving up on LMDE forever.  The solution in that case was, use apt-get - the same might apply here.  Ubuntu dropped aptitude for a reason (though I certainly prefer it/use it over apt-get, but i don't run ubuntu)09:08
zykotick9hypnocat: it's /etc/apt/sources.list right?09:09
hypnocati do have an /etc/apt/sources.list09:09
hypnocatok.. that non-problem is solved..09:10
sbarcteam|johnny|: you can use patch utility.  usage is described in its man page. basically it is: cd to the root folder of what you patch, then run: patch < file.patch09:10
|johnny|ahh ok I'll give it a shot09:10

Anthonyinstall finised no error11:27
damo22Anthony: what is the output ?11:27
tensorpuddingmotz, well, the best way is to connect them through ethernet cables to your router11:27
Anthonyistall finished no error reported11:27
tensorpuddingmotz, then share the folder on the ubuntu laptop, and browse the share on the mac laptop11:27
damo22Anthony: ok now do this:   sudo umount /mnt11:28
tensorpuddingmotz, you don't need to connect them with wires, you can do it over wireless, but wireless is so slow that 6.8 GB will take several hours11:28
damo22Anthony: then you can reboot and it should work11:28
fidelmotz: or just push the file via scp from box a to b (ssh access must be enabled in the mac sys-prefs)11:28
bc81tom453642356: diff -r <dir1> <dir2>11:28
Anthonysays command not found11:29
tom453642356thanks bc11:29
damo22Anthony: umount not uNmount11:29
Dr_Willispaste the exact command you are using.11:30
tensorpuddingmotz, folder sharing can be accomplished by right-clicking the folder and going to Sharing Options, then enabling the folder; you do this for the folder that holds the file you want, and enable guest access11:30
tensorpuddingmotz, do you follow?11:30
Anthonyok got it now restart11:31

d1bhi i wish to install ubuntu on a mac pro11:35
d1bwhat's the best way to do this?11:35
damo22d1b: i have done it i am running it now11:36
d1bdamo22: yes and what's the best way to do this11:36
Anthonyo what do i do11:36
damo22d1b: go into osx and shrink your main HFS+ partition so there is room for ubuntu at the end of the drive11:37
d1bdamo22: and then?11:37
damo22d1b: then you need to be careful11:37
d1bhow do i boot ubuntu / install it from there?11:38
Dr_WillisMake Backups. always step #1 :)11:38
d1bi have backups :p11:38
ubottuFor help on installing and using Ubuntu on a mac, see: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/MactelSupportTeam/CommunityHelpPages11:38
Dr_Willisbackup your backups...11:38
damo22d1b: the main thing is to not allow ubuntu to wipe the EFI partition11:38
d1bDr_Willis: i read that and ... it doesn't answer all of the questions :p11:38
d1bDr_Willis: right11:38
d1bdamo22: *11:38
damo22d1b: you have to boot off the livecd11:39
d1bthe thing is my mac pro wouldn't be on this thing ... i think it is the latest :p11:39
d1bdamo22: ok11:39
Anthony; what do i do11:39
damo22d1b: you insert the cd and hold "option/alt" button while it is booting11:40
damo22d1b: then you can boot off the cd with the arrow keys11:40
d1bdamo22: how do i ensure that it doesn't kill the efi partition11:40

damo22d1b: select the grub bootloader to install into /dev/sdxY where Y is the partition of the ubuntu root11:41
ian_dlb: If you can't find out from Apple how to install Ubuntu using BootCamp as the boot manager, I would install Ubuntu on a separate drive - this way you won't inadvertantly cause the BootCamp boot manager to get overwritten by Ubuntu's Grub boot manager11:41
d1bdamo22: so i will need to install refit?11:41
mrtn86Am I correct, that "software-center" uses APT database as well? I mean I could use apt-get for installing some programs and software-center to install other ones if I like?11:41
damo22d1b: not necessary11:42
bazhangmrtn86, yes11:42
d1bso will it let me pick between ubuntu and osx?11:42
d1b(on boot)11:42
ian_dlb: This is what I did with my Windows 7 workstation - I didn't want to screw with the Windows boot manager11:42
=== skilz is now known as skilz-a
damo22d1b: only if you hold option alt while it boots11:42
mrtn86bazhang, thanks!11:42
Dr_Willismrtn86:  all the package manager tools are basically front ends to the apt system.11:42
d1bdamo22: ah ok11:43
damo22d1b: then you can use the built in osx bootloader to select ubuntu11:43
d1bso grub doesn't let me do it11:43
d1boh ok11:43
d1bso it will then just boot osx by default?11:43
d1bok cool11:43
d1bit isn't possible to usb boot (instead of cdrom) ?11:43
damo22probably is possible using the exact same method11:44
d1blast time i tried it, it didn't work tho :<11:44
damo22osx has a built in bootloader that lets you choose which partition to boot from, and if you install ubuntu onto one of them you can nest the bootloaders this way11:45
d1byes last time i tried it ... it didn't work :<11:46
d1bok cool11:46
Dr_Willisinstall grub to say sda3 You mean?11:46
damo22Dr_Willis: yes11:46
osmosisis there any way to get the file edit menus back onto the application window instead of at the top?11:46
Dr_Willisive only done that with seperate hard drives. :) on Intel pc's  - i dont have a mac.. heh.11:46
damo22d1b: whatever you do, DONT install grub to /dev/sda11:46
Dr_Willisosmosis:  you can disable the 'global menus' if you dont like them.  the webupd8 blog site mentions how to do it globally, or for specific apps.11:47
d1bdamo22: i'll make a backup of /dev/sda first ;)11:47
=== skilz-a is now known as skilz
osmosisDr_Willis, cooL! will checkout11:47
Dr_WillisI think has the info. or links11:48
damo22d1b: /dev/sda1 is the EFI partition and the first 512 bytes of /dev/sda  is the osx partition table + jump code11:48
Dr_Willisthat url is worth bookmarking in any case. :)11:48
d1bdamo22: cool11:48

MautzHey there! Got some trouble with booting from MARVELL raid after updating the BIOS; Ubuntu doesn't find the raid drive, which I used to boot from. Windows 7 does, so I think the raid itself is still ok. fdisk on live-system won't show the disk either. Could someone help me out please?12:40
mosdef100200Hi there does anyone know of a .swf live preview software in Linux?12:40
crizzymosdef100200: gnash.. mplayer + xine can play flash files too12:41
Braden`Dr-Willis-Of-Lov:  Thanks12:41
ikoniaMautz: you'll find that common with all fakeraid devices12:41
ikoniaMautz: using fakeraid is something I'd try to avoid at all costs12:42
mosdef100200Hi thanks for the help what i used to have on windows was a preview thumbnail generator of a swf file and i am trying to find something like that in linux12:42
Dr-Willis-Of-Lovit would be a feature of the file manager i imagine.12:43
kralleDr-Willis-Of-Lov:  any more ideas ?12:43
Mautzikonia: but it worked until this update; any idea how to fix this?12:43
ikoniaMautz: I suspect the support/inbuilt driver will have changed between kernels and that device is no longer usable12:43

Mautzikonia: so i have to downgrade my bios again and hope, that I will show up agian?12:44
ikoniaMautz: I just wouldn't use it at all, and swap to software raid12:45
Mautzikonia: can I use the software-raid from linux and windows? doesn't it slow down the system?12:46
ikoniaMautz: software raid is not cross-platform, so your windows disk won't see it12:46
ikoniaMautz: in terms of performance there is no difference between software raid and fake raid, they both use the machines cpu (that's why it's called fake raid)12:46
Mautzikonia: so best would be to use a raid-controller?!12:48
ikoniaMautz: a hardware raid controller is good, software raid if you only need Linux support, fakeraid (for me) never12:48

kralleif i run the hotspot dnsmasq not start cause port 53 is in use13:54
ikoniakralle: again - what has that got to do with network manager, you need to explain your setup / problem if you want help13:54
DevilSolutionis the syntax im using even right? PATH="$HOME/bin:$HOME/MyName/scala-2.8.1.final/bin"13:54
tensorpuddingoh, don't do that!13:54
ikoniakralle: 53  is a dns server - but again what has this got to do with network manager ?13:54
kralleikonia:  i have ubuntu , i whant to run dnsmasq And a wifi hotspot13:54
DevilSolutionbecuase after source ~/.profile its still not showing in the echo $PATH13:54
tensorpuddingyou're not adding it to PATH, you're resetting PATH13:54

ikoniakralle: best of luck13:55
tensorpuddingDevilSolution, by the way, $HOME would be /home/user13:55
tensorpuddingso that's redundant13:55

tensorpuddingand then run bash, and do echo $PATH again14:09

d4n137Question:  Now that Tomboy has been removed from Ubuntu 12.04, what does the future hold for UbuntuOne/Tomboy integration?14:10
tensorpuddingyou'd have to use gksudo nautilus to bring up a "superuser" file manager so you have the permissions though14:10
DevilSolutionsomethings changed but im trying to figure out what, it hasnt added scala-version.final/bin but its added something14:15
tensorpuddingit probably added /home/user/bin, for user being whatever your username is14:15
DevilSolutionokay its added home/myname/bin14:15
DevilSolutionadd the contents of scala/bin to bin?14:16
tensorpuddingthen run eclipse from inside the terminal14:16
DevilSolutionokie dokie14:16
tensorpuddingand it should work14:16
tensorpuddingit'll work when you launch it from the dock if you log out again14:16

coolmcl0vin, you should read https://help.ubuntu.com/11.10/ubuntu-help/index.html14:36
__Alex_Navion: in /etc/default/grub, there is a line 'GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash"', add there "nomodeset", so it would be GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash nomodeset", save it, and then do a 'update-grub2'14:36

red5acicula: ok !15:24

urlin2ufalcom, your missing the  /bootmgr on sda1 if that has been the active partition. you can rebuild that setup with all these commands but to be honest you might try seeking a user Pzt at the ##windows channel.  http://paste.ubuntu.com/813664/16:58

sKew^_-plm, what are you saying? now dont?17:13
Dweezahrurlin2u, fedora did keep the old commands and uses install-grub2 etc. so when switching between the two os I found out is was different on ubuntu17:13
Dweezahrbut nevermind17:13
ranokcloudgeek: you will need X to display gfx and video17:14
urlin2uDweezahr, yeah, I use fedora two, not as easy, longer commands.17:14
cloudgeekrandok : okay not possible without X17:14

oCeanplm: that is netboot, not netbook17:18
oCeanplm: with netboot you can install through network17:18
urlin2ufalcom, follow the chroot commands once you're there run apt-get purge grub grub-pc grub-common then run apt-get install grub-pc grub-common  then when asked where grub goes choose sda only use the shift bar to tick it then the esc key to high light then enter.  any commands wrong incorrectly will stop the fix.  https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Grub2#ChRoot17:18
DweezahrBrilliant plm!17:19
DweezahrI couldnt think of that one17:19
plmoCean: ahh ok but with netbook is for desktop instalation or derver17:19
oCeanplm: netbook WAS (no longer is) a specific desktop edition for small notebooks17:19
urlin2ufalcom, in the link just run the commands to # 9 to bget to the chroot then my commands then a update-grub aftyer all my commands then reboot.17:20
Dweezahrplm, unity apparantly is a graphics environment like kde or gnome, and from the netbook edition it was implemented in the standard edition17:20
falcomwhat is your "commands"17:21
sKew^_-plm, ubuntu server is for server, ubuntu desktop is for laptop, desktops, netbooks etc - correct me if a im wrong #ubuntu17:21
DweezahrsKew^_-, seems right17:21
urlin2ufalcom, there are in the post before the last one.17:21

falcomurlin2u: hmm what should i mount in this case ? my windows or ubuntu?17:23
DweezahroCean, a user interface for gnome17:23
urlin2ufalcom, follow this then when you have run the the install commands run update-grub follow the chroot commands once you're there run apt-get purge grub grub-pc grub-common then run apt-get install grub-pc grub-common  then when asked where grub goes choose sda only use the shift bar to tick it then the esc key to high light then enter.  any commands wrong incorrectly will stop the fix.  https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Grub2#ChRoot17:23
