holsteinis syncing when you plug a cable from the phone to the computer thetinyjesus ? .. i havent had to do that in years.. i wouldnt expect ubuntu to be able to do anything to "fix" iOS00:00
thetinyjesusfans*00:00
icerootthetinyjesus: because i believe in freedom00:00
lehzenithetinyjesus, have you tried the "gnupd" package?00:00
lehzeni"gnupod"00:00
dragonflyRoxy`, I'll post a couple links I found:00:00
thetinyjesusholstein: i can get the ipod to mount, i can transfer the songs ON the ipod to my computer but if i try to sync a song to the iphone it says it works but doesn't show up on the iphone00:01
icerootthetinyjesus: there are solutions (see ubottu ) but i dont want to spent time to support unfree things (sorry)00:01
holsteinthetinyjesus: it doesnt have to be anything personal... you can use what you like, and should... but dont expect unsupported OS's to be able to support the iOS platform00:01

john_doe_jrif I want a script to do several things do I just use the && statement to join all the commands that I would normally type @ the command line?00:01
icerootthetinyjesus: if we support something like apple-stuff there will never be a change with ther evil politic (itunes and so on)00:01
cfhowlettdiverdude: are you trying to install them in a NOT ubuntu OS??00:01
lehzenithetinyjesus, that's because the song has to be added to the daatabase in the iphone. which was one of the things gnupod used to take care of00:01

icerootthetinyjesus: but see the true, apple is evil because they take away your freedom, you cant use there products with everything and i dont see a reason why we should support it00:05
icerootthetinyjesus: but that is just my opinion and i am speaking not for #ubuntu00:05

icerootthetinyjesus: you looked the links from ubottu ?00:07
dragonflyiceroot, just to put things in perspective, offering support using apple products with ubuntu here would not necessarily be promoting apple, but rather providing a service to those who wish to migrate towards open solutions (such as android and ubuntu) but currently have apple devices00:07
thetinyjesusiceroot: yeah i've been checking everywhere possible for days00:07
icerootdragonfly: i dont see why people should migrate if we help them to use there unfree stuff00:08

thetinyjesusiceroot: i just recently started linux like two weeks ago i'm not that great yet just getting the feel of it but so far i love it, no crashes got all hardware working and enjoying how you can customize literally everything00:11
dragonflyiceroot, I'm referring to if someone has say an iPod touch...perhaps they are interested in switching from windows to ubuntu....if they can still use the device they currently have (iphone, touch, etc) it can put a taste in their mouth for the free stuff and perhaps their next device will be android....but if they can't even do something as simple as use their ipod with ubuntu then why woudl they want to continue using ubuntu because every00:11
dragonflything "just works" with their ipod and windows00:11
riyonukHow would I configure Ubuntu to use a static IP (like 192.168.1.1) or something?00:11
lehzeniethtool00:12
icerootdragonfly: its just my opinion and maybe you are right but i will never support using apple-products (on ubuntu or somewhere else)00:12
holsteinthetinyjesus: maybe you can move this sync up into an account.. you should ask in the apple channels about how that would work... i use google music on my android phone.. everything is synced over the internet00:12
dragonfly.....the issue is not whether ubuntu has an obligation to support apple products, but rather that perhaps the "community" should step-up and fill in a void where apple refuses to cooperate and be of any help whatsoever00:12
thetinyjesusdragonfly: thats why you do what i did and just partition the drive so you save all your media there and dual boot win/linux and both OS can share that partition00:12
thetinyjesusdragonfly: and when needed for the one or two tasks linux cannot work with at the moment, you have a backup plan00:13
dragonflythetinyjesus, i agree and I have used a similar solution myself, but for the less technical user, it would be better if that was unnecessary...imo00:13
thetinyjesusdragonfly: agree im not a computer tech or anything just really a hobby on the side i enjoy00:13
daniel_hi folks00:14
ironshoehatHi00:14
thetinyjesusholstein: hey man can you point me into the right direction which server/channel for that?00:14
dragonflyiceroot, I have a similar philosophy in that I don't necessarily like apple products and wouldn't recommend or promote their use....however, I will "support" their use (to whatever limited extent I can) on Ubuntu simply by way of if someone has an ipod they should still be won over to Ubuntu00:16
ActionParsnipdragonfly: you can access NTFS from Ubuntu so just have your NTFS mount at boot and symlink to the folder00:17
icerootdragonfly: and i thing the only way to stop this products is not to support them and dont help people to use something like that00:17
ActionParsnipdragonfly: I'm the same way about apple + support. I hate apple00:17
icerootdragonfly: but as i said, this is just my opinion and not everyone would like that opinion and of course everyone is free to help others on that topic00:17
thetinyjesusActionParsnip: the problem is apple doesn't just say put the artist in a folder like you would think, the folder name along with song title are all coded in numbers00:18
ActionParsnipthetinyjesus: afaik rhythmnbox does something magical, I believe amarok can manage them too00:18
icerootdragonfly: and the main-reason why i am using GNU/Linux is not because its free (as in free beer) not because its "cool" just because its FREE (as in free speech)00:19
thetinyjesusActionParsnip:  i can view EVERYTHING on my iphone but have no friggin clue what the song is, and yes i can transfer the songs INTO rhythmnbox but i cannot transfer back onto the iphone00:19
iceroot!free00:19
ubottufreedom is important. Ubuntu is as free as we can make it, which means mostly free software. See http://www.gnu.org/philosophy/free-sw.html and http://www.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/licensing00:19
lehzenithetinyjesus, if you had a separate ipod (any model) for music, you could convert it to RockBox firmware, which is superior and much easier to use from linux00:19
thetinyjesuslehzeni: i would do it if it wasn't my phone lol i cant risk that00:19
lehzenithetinyjesus, that's why I said a separate ipod00:20
ActionParsnipthetinyjesus: could always run Windows in the closed source virtualbox. If companies don't support Linux I suggest you don't buy their kit00:20
icerootActionParsnip: +100:20

lehzenino, I meant legally free music00:23
thetinyjesushmm closest to that was downloaded mixtapes off datpiff.com00:24

dies_iraeI do have it in the sources00:27
ActionParsnipdog: what video chip do you use?00:28
Roxy`ActionParsnip: That's the problem. I don't need unetbootin to give the windows iso a LINUX bootloader LOL! It never worked that way00:28

stevecamim trying to install zsnes through synaptic but its telling me that it wants to remove other packages like ubuntu-desktop, vlc and devede, why is this happening?00:31
ActionParsnipryan__: a little but if you install office, DVD playback and ALL the other apps in XP you are going to start pushin past the 10Gb mark easilyt00:31
icerootryan__: e.g. ubuntu has a office suite, pdf viewer and so one00:31
ActionParsnipryan__: a stock install is pretty small, only a coule of Gbs00:32
ActionParsnip*couple00:32
ActionParsnipryan__: so your comparison is flawed00:32

Roxy`lehzeni: On a netbook.00:33

Canadian1296**shouldn't00:35
ActionParsnipRoxy`: you could setup a PXE server and install over network. The usb install is a LOT quicker00:35

Canadian1296Alright, I'm messing around with installing Ubuntu in virtualbox (Mac OS X Lion host) so I can get comfortable with the process (im installing it on a second computer im getting soon). Just wondering, currently I have a /boot partition, and an encrypted lvm partition (with swap, / (system), and /home virtual partitions on it). How would I put the boot partition on an external source (ex. a usb) so the computer won't boot without 00:40
Canadian1296attached? Yes, the whole setup is paranoid, I'm just trying to learn00:40
leepingHi there, there is something wrong with Evolution, I already tried restarting the computer.  How do I delete the temporary files (excluding the whole mailbox)?00:40
stevecamcfhowlett, http://imagebin.org/19784100:40
h00kleeping: what is the 'something wrong' with evolution you're trying to fix?00:41
h00k!broken | leeping00:41
ubottuleeping: Saying "It says nothing", "It does nothing" is generally not very useful for troubleshooting. Please be as specific as possible: if you see a black screen, say so, if you see a shell prompt, say so, if you see an !error message, say so - Also, most !CLI commands don't print anything when they succeed, but only when they fail.00:41
leepingh00k, when I click on the listing of message titles, the message does not appear in the preview pane.00:41
urlin2uStygian, the bootscript is what you want pastebin the results text made from running it.00:41
ActionParsnipCanadian1296: the default install is pretty well setup. Just stick to using sudo when needed and you'll be ok00:41
=== uplink is now known as dcosta
cfhowlettstevecam: what version of ubuntu are you running?00:42
leepingI already asked how to delete the temporary files, that was my proposed fix :)00:42
ActionParsnipCanadian1296: you could use ufw to configure a firewall etc00:42
stevecamcfhowlett, 11.1000:42
Canadian1296ActionParsnip: Okay I'll do both, any other tips? I'm looking for over the top paranoid security here :P00:43
ActionParsnipleeping: bleachbit ran as root and user can clear temp files well, watch settings for apps and avoid options which say they will take a long time00:43
dcostahi00:43
ActionParsnipCanadian1296: could use tor proxy if your tinfoil hat collection is vast00:43
Roxy``dd? whats dd?00:43
lehzenia cli command00:43
cfhowlettstevecam: NO WAY should a game emulator (ZNES) require this kind of configuration.  IDK WHY it's requesting what you see, but something is VERY wrong.  DO NOT proceed.  But if have to have ZNES, install it inside a virtual machine in Virtual box.00:43
Stygianurlin2u ok give me a few minutes00:43
urlin2uStygian, cool. :)00:44
ActionParsnipstevecam: zsnes is on the playonlinux ppa, dead easy to install00:44
leepingActionParsnip, I will try that, thank you :)00:44
Canadian1296ActionParsnip: is there any way to force all outgoing connections through tor, or would I have to manually configure every application?00:44
ActionParsnipleeping: have as many apps CLOSED as you can to unlock files,00:44
Roxy``lehzeni: Is there a gui program I use to burn an iso the usb drive?00:44
stevecamlooks like human error00:44
zykotick9ActionParsnip: assuming you use 32bit, for 64bit zsnes is a big "issue".  I stopped using it.00:44
lehzeniRoxy``: for example "dd if=infile of=/dev/sdx bs=1M count=filesize"00:44

Stygianurlin2u I can't download that file00:58
Stygianeverytime I connect the laptop it locks up my router00:58

joe_____it is possible, but it will break easily Canadian00:58
joe_____say you loose the usb drive00:58
urlin2uStygian, you need to do it on a live ubuntu cd.00:58

urlin2ustygian idea, just reinstall it in one partition is my advice since it is a fresh install. No boot partition is needed, and ubuntu is setup theses days for a single partition install unless you have to have home separate for upgrades or change of releases, but this is just my opinion01:19

ubottuGuest77817: Testing... Testing... 1. 2.. 3... ( by the way, remember that you can use #test )01:27
urlin2uStygian, a install disc is what you want a oem without the extra stuff is best.01:27
Chucky_Lucianohi guys..  quick ques:  did they ever finish ubuntu service panel 3?  i have searched everywhere01:27
Stygianurlin2u that's what i already have01:27
StygianI think I will do what cfhowlett suggestioned, order the media disc from samsung and just wipe all partitions01:28
bazhangChucky_Luciano, you mean for 10.04 ?01:28
urlin2uStygian, cool you called it a recovery and uyou have a recovery on the hd do you see the difficulty in interpreting your sistuation or intentions.01:28
TasmaniaThere's def going to be spam01:28
urlin2uin the end Stygian01:28
Canadian1296For anyone who wasn't here before, I'm doing this in virtualbox so I don't have to worry about messing up. I was reading a forum online and someone mentioned dual booting (both linux), with a fully encrypted drive and decryption keys on a different drive. If no key drive is available it boots to one the first os, and the other one isnt available as it is still completely encrypted. If the key drive is plugged in, it decrypts the 01:28
Canadian1296boots to it. (note the plausable deniability)01:28
bazhangTasmania, dont add to it01:28
Canadian1296Any pointers about how to do this?01:28
ActionParsnipCanadian1296: true, you can make a backup of your disk image and restore if things go screwy01:29
Stygianurlin2u, yees because there's a restore partition and also a restore cd01:29
Stygiandunno why they gave me both01:29
Canadian1296ActionParsnip: Exactly. Anyway I want to try that. Any ideas on how?01:29
kah_Hey I'm getting a window - Unlock Private Key -- Enter password to unlock the private key01:29
kah_any ideas?01:30
urlin2uStygian, I just clone stuff a oem dic most likely will overwrite the whole disc a clone will install what you had same size.01:30
ActionParsnipCanadian1296: no idea. I steer clear of encrypted drive nonesense, too many headaches01:30
Chucky_Lucianobazhang, dont matter really...  i am using mint 11 right now which is based on  ubuntu 11.04, and i installed ubuntu system panel 2.01-00, its the latest one i could find...  the mint menu is based on that, but U.S.P. has better customization01:30
cfhowlettkah_: on boot??01:30
Canadian1296ActionParsnip: Okay, thanks anyways01:30

ActionParsnipRoxy``: why, unetbootin and usb-creator are available an NATIVE01:33
bazhangRoxy``, no need for that, use the usb creator or unetbootin01:33
TasmaniaI don't know who diconnected my account.01:33
ActionParsnipRoxy``: why use some windows app via wine, makes no sense at all01:33
Canadian1296Is there a channel relating to general linux security?01:34
bazhangTasmania, lets stop it, you haven't stopped yet01:34
Oerrone-, at what part you got stuck ?01:34
Tasmania^ what?01:34
ActionParsnipRoxy``: thats about as smart as downloading firefox and thunderbord from the web and runnning those in wine01:34
Roxy``unetbootin made a linux booter and left the option "Defeult" and I tried to go through to it and it just keeps throwing me back to the same screen for the windows iso01:34

BsimsGrr lost system bell on upgrade01:37
Bsimsthis is starting to piss me off it will work upgrade gone again, then it comes back for no reason01:37
ActionParsnipBsims: which DE?01:38
Roxy``usb-creator won't even notice the windows iso but it sure in hell picks up on the ubuntu iso though.01:39
ActionParsnipRoxy``: great isnt it :)01:39
Roxy``ActionParsnip: Pretty fucked up if you asked me.01:39
Roxy``LOL01:39
zykotick9rosseaux: usb-creator is ubuntu only01:39

cordovalhi I am getting a compilation error01:39
cordovalcompiling a php module undefined reference to `mysql_server_init'01:39

Roxy``So looks like Ia m getting wine apparantly.01:40
Roxy``and getting that windows app for the usb01:40
Roxy``XD01:40
ActionParsnipRoxy``: check the appdb, make sure its a compatible app01:40
Oerrone-, maybe the example @ https://help.ubuntu.com/11.10/installation-guide/hppa/preseed-using.html is any help01:40
nnatomltopCan some one explain to me why ubuntu went with a program called apt daemon  ... That eats all the cpu and seems to fail at its job half the time.01:40
BsimsActionParsnip: kde01:41
ActionParsnipnnatomltop: what is the output of:  lsb_release -sc01:41
ActionParsnipBsims: let me search01:41
BsimsActionParsnip: running urxvt01:41
ActionParsnipBsims: is pcspkr loaded?01:42
Oerrone-, look for the section ### Partitioning01:42
BsimsActionParsnip: was last I knew let me check01:42
ActionParsnipBsims: I suggest you run:   echo "pcspkr" | sudo tee -a /etc/modules     and it will load at start and load the system beep (annoying imho)01:42
Dillman09I have an Lenovo x200s and havent going from ubuntu 10.4 to 11.10 I have a serious decrease in battery life. I've read all about the kernel bug but havent been able to fix it. i hear its going to be patched in 3.2.5, but I'm not sure if its the same bug. Does anyone have experience with this? or at least have an idea when 3.2.5 is going to be released?01:43
nnatomltopActionParsnip, Sadly Apt-Daemon was the last straw for me.  I tried to tolerate ubuntu.  I switched all 4 systems over to Debian. The one last ubuntu system I just kill apt daemon every time it starts up and manually tell apt-get to upgrade.01:43
ActionParsnipnnatomltop: so why are you here? This is a support channel...?01:44
nnatomltopActionParsnip, Because I am hopeing you can give me an idea of how to remove apt-daemon for good from my last remaining system. I don't have time to deal with it.01:44
cfhowlettDillman09: lenovo no longer sells that model, so I'm guessing it's old(er) tech.  Strongly suggest you stick with LTS releases and/or consider switching to x/l/buntu as they support lower spec machines01:44
BsimsActionParsnip: its loaded now and still nothing01:44
OerDillman09, kernel 3.2x is available in the next version 12.04, i would not advise to use it in 11.1001:45
Bsimsjust a second and I'll restart this screen01:45
BsimsActionParsnip: thank you it worked01:45
Canadian1296Booted fresh install of Ubuntu 11.10 (In VirtualBox), decrypted LVM encrypted partition, it said decryption was successful, and now I have (In orange text if it matters) "mountall: Disconnected from Plymouth"01:45
Bsimslol got to restart screen to get it to take but beep works01:46
ActionParsnipBsims: np man, seems weird the module isn't loaded consistantly01:46
Dillman09it runs a core 2 duo l9400 . should i downgrade back to 10.04 or 10.1? or wait till the new 12.04?01:46
Roxy``ActionParsnip: appdb?01:46
beata|lemur*headdesk* I'm not sure where to start. Attempting to get oneiric to run on an Armada E500, possibly the same issues? (I just got in)01:46

cfhowlettDillman09: LTS only is a whole LOT less heartbreaking.  go with 10.04 until 12.04 arrive.01:46
Roxy``ActionParsnip: Just found out the hardware that wine can't even detect my usb drive, thats REALLY fucked up01:47
ActionParsnipbeata|lemur: if you tell us your issue instead of that stuff, we can help01:47
Dillman09ok good call i appriciate it01:47
BsimsActionParsnip: the ubuntu devs have a nasty jihad against it, as I understand it the beep needed a complete rewrite, as it conflicted with unicode support for international languages01:47
ActionParsnipRoxy``: please keep the language family friendly01:47
Roxy``ActionParsnip: what other iso to usb program do you know of?01:47
Dillman09in terms of 10.04. do you think there are any security concerns for just using that long term?01:47
BsimsDillman09: actual vs in theory01:48
Dillman09ok01:48
Dillman09good enough01:48
pangolinHow can i get the internal ip of all the devices on my network?01:48
ActionParsnipRoxy``: 1 2 3 app from pendrivelinux01:48
cfhowlettDillman09: 10.40 is LTS so it's supported for 36 months.  12.04 will get 5 year support...01:48
rone-Oer, thanks, i will check that out, hope it works01:48
ActionParsnippangolin: nmap01:48
javier_Hi! I'm having problems in my laptop (I believe hardware problems) with ubuntu11.10. I runned memtest and reported no errors. If I boot ubuntu or windows7, it takes 30 mins. Now I booted from ubuntu live USB. Someone has an idea what can it mean? Does it tell something about where can be the problem! Appreciate your help!01:48
Roxy``ActionParsnip: I don't want linux bootloaders on my windows iso startup -_-01:48
Dillman09what do you say about an in place upgrade from 10.04 to 12.04 when it is released? for whatever reason, i'm always a fan of fresh installs01:49
ActionParsnipRoxy``: its not something ive had to use. the grub and lilo bootloaders can boot windows01:49
nnatomltopActionParsnip, I needed a simple system that my clients can use.  Not one that changes entirely every upgrade.  After ubuntu switched to Unity fully and messed up the updating system.   I had to remove my social and phisical support of the system. I can no longer trust ubuntu.   I seem to still be cleaning up the mess.01:49
bazhangRoxy``, this is not the place for support of that: ##windows01:49
beata|lemurSure! Current issue is 'Failed to load session gnome'01:49
cfhowlettDillman09: clean install is preferred but in place is do-able01:49
Roxy``bazhang: I am STUCK in ubuntu, and need help with it.01:49
ActionParsnipnnatomltop: you don't have to use unity01:49
Roxy``bazhang: I am sure ##windows wouldn't be able to help me with a ubuntu **** up XD01:50
Oerpangolin, nmap -sP 192.168.1.0/24 >> That will ping every address between 192.168.1.0 and 192.168.1.255 and list those it finds01:50
bazhangRoxy``, you are trying to create a windows iso start up. there are no ubuntu tools for that01:50
bazhangRoxy``, last warning on the foul language01:50
ActionParsnipnnatomltop: I use LXDE and there is no Unity there. Also if you use xfce or KDE or ANY other DE, you will not get Unity by default01:50
Dillman09ok, i'll make sure to test 12.04 on a new disk to ensure that the power issue is resolved before rebuilding. really appreciate the help01:50
pangolinActionParsnip Oer thank you01:50
Roxy``bazhang: What other software is there to burn an iso to the usb.01:51
cfhowlettDillman09: good luck  - don't forget to look at x/l/buntu01:51
BsimsRoxy``: try Linuxlive usb creator or unetbootin and feed it your windows iso01:51
Dillman09which would you recommend?01:51
Bsimsunetbootin runs in linux01:51
Dillman09im open to any sugguestions01:51
cfhowlettDillman09: install virtual box and try them both!  Win!01:51
bazhangRoxy``, you are asking about burning a windows iso to usb, this is the wrong place for it. ##windows is the correct place01:51
Roxy``Bsims: Unetbootin and windows aren't actually FRIENDS.01:51
BsimsRoxy``: ya asked for ideas01:51
Dillman09i spend most of my day using virtual box. so i'm ultimately looking for a stable vbox platform01:52
ActionParsnipRoxy``: you could get another windows user near t you to make you a bootable windows USB, probably easier01:52
ActionParsnipDillman09: virtualbox, qemu and vmware are options01:52
Roxy``bazhang: Like ##windows would know the proper software to use IN ubuntu01:52
cfhowlettDillman09: I'd tend to favor xubuntu as hosts then01:52
nnatomltopActionParsnip, Alright I will have to figure that out later.   Still I preferred ubuntu when it was simple and sleak, close to Debian.  ....   Do I just use apt-get install gnome to get back to the base system ?01:53
Dillman09and any particular release of xubuntu? i think i'd have to find one with an older kernel  or the new 3.2.501:53
ActionParsnipnnatomltop: Unity is a shell for Gnome, you already have gnome installed if you are using Unity01:53
cfhowlettDillman09: 10.04 should run on your specs01:54
beata|lemurI would like to get the system to a reasonably stable state where I can work on dock/hotswap/ACPI support.01:54
Dillman09ok cool. going to download an .iso now01:54
cfhowlettDillman09: good luck.01:54
ActionParsnipnnatomltop: I suggest you run:  sudo apt-get install xfce4    and install xfce, use the xfce session and it will feel like Gnome201:54
Bsimsnnatomltop: xfce is good01:55
Bsimsthough I would give my eyeteeth to see kde have icon support like wmaker01:55
nnatomltopActionParsnip, How do I switch shells?  and remove apt-daemon .....  742MB ram for the base system is unacceptable I feel like I am using windows.    One last question How does unity interact with the system and is it disabled by default?01:56
* Bsims grins different functions based on middle click vs left click01:56
Roxy``ActionParsnip: Thats what am about to do, I am not about to be stuck awhole night in ubuntu's crap01:56
lenswipehey guys01:56
ActionParsnipRoxy``: find a local buddy01:56
beata|lemurYe gods.01:56
lenswipeis there a way i can do an ubuntu install in OEM mode?01:56
lenswipei have ubuntu on a penstick for a netbook01:56
BsimsRoxy``: what did ya do to mess up your bootloader?01:56
FloodBot1!netsplit01:57
Bsimslets start at the begining, feel free to PM01:57
ubottunetsplit is when two IRC servers of the same network (like freenode) disconnect from each other, so users on one server stop seeing users on the other. If this is happening now, just relax and enjoy the show. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Netsplit01:57
lenswipeso i can just set all the techie stuff up and have it ask the user all the .....holy fuck01:57
ActionParsnipnnatomltop: if you install gnome-shell you can press ALT+F2 and run:  gnome-shell --repace   and use that01:57
lenswipeall the user related non techy questions later01:57
lenswipeis that possible>01:57
Roxy``Bsims: I didn't do anything I used unetbootin to burn the windows 7 iso onto the usb drive and it screwed it all up.01:57
ActionParsnipnnatomltop: if you wnat to switch desktop (not shell) then you need to log off and select it at login01:57

Roxy``dRounse: Not by far, you don't. I've installed it using a usb drive before.01:58
lenswipeBsims, no, im doing an install for someone and i wont be around when they set the password and stuff up01:58
Bsimslenswipe: on every unix like OS ah01:58
ActionParsnipbeata|lemur: if you use lubuntu or xubuntu it will be a bit faster01:58
lenswipeBsims, i need them to choose this stuff after ive long gone01:58
lenswipeBsims, i should mention this is a netbook01:59
Bsimslenswipe: Hrm have them email it to ya and ssh to it to set it?01:59
Roxy``Ben64: my issue is with ubuntu, only thing is I am stuck with the piece of crap trying to transfer an windows iso from it01:59
Oerlenswipe, https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Ubuntu_OEM_Installer_Overview  ( i think you need the dvd iso for that )01:59
mhazKubuntu not supported. Unity pushed. Why stay with Ubuntu?01:59
lenswipeOer, will that fit on a penstick?01:59
dRounsei have a question regarding converting music files01:59
lenswipeBsims, i would prefer this way01:59
nnatomltopActionParsnip, Thanks.    Do you know what apt-daemon was supposed to accomplish.  It really confuses me.  Its like a big fancy annoying thing for what should be a simple user initiated simple public task.01:59
ActionParsniplenswipe: install openssh-server and port forward port 22/TCP on their router, you can now remote access to fix some things01:59
bazhangmhaz, thats not a support question01:59
lenswipeActionParsnip, No.01:59
Ben64Roxy``: if you have a problem with ubuntu, ask a question. we're not here to help you install windows01:59
lenswipe:p01:59
cfhowlettdRounse: ask01:59
ActionParsnipnnatomltop: not sure, is it ran as root or as user?01:59
mhazSorry. Thought discussion forum.02:00
Bsimslenswipe: can't think of anything of the top of my head other than set it up with an account named setup and have them add the new user from that then remove the user02:00
Roxy``Ben64: I don't need help installing Windows, Windows is way more simple. The problem is getting it burned on a usb stick from its iso format02:00
bazhangmhaz, there is one : #ubuntu-offtopic02:00
JPetersonopen-vm-tools clipboard doesn't work02:00
ActionParsnipnnatomltop: could try marking it as not executable and reboot, see if it helps :) You can always boot to liveCD and tweak it back if it causes issues02:00
lenswipeBsims, ill just set it for them to automatically login i guess02:00
lenswipe;/02:00
ActionParsnipJPeterson: any details.....02:00
nnatomltopActionParsnip, It seems to be run as root.  Does not seem to talk to the update manager well.  Eats a lot of cpu and dosn't show what its doing.  I have a habit of killing things that I don't know what they are doing.02:00
BsimsRoxy``: and for the 11,482nd time in the wrong room02:00

dRounsecfhowlett: i converted my music using sound converter, to 128 kbps and on the file when i look it says 48 kbps but the quality is not of 48 kbps is that normal?02:01
cfhowlettRoxy``: go to a friend.  borrow his windows machine.  create your media.  live long and prosper02:01
beata|lemurI can go give that a try, sure.02:01

JPetersonthat's it02:01
mhazthanks02:01
JPetersonlsmod show all modules02:01
cfhowlettdRounse: "quality is no 48" means what??02:01

ActionParsnipJPeterson: did it work before the removal?02:02
JPetersonActionParsnip: nope02:02
JPetersonlsmod show vmblock, vmsync, vmhgfs, vmci02:02
ActionParsnipnnatomltop: you can also see the bugs reported for the package02:02
dRounsecfhowlett: well the higher bitrate the better quality, but the quality of the songs i converted is definetly not 48 kbps.... is that normal for my computer to say 48 kbps02:02
Bsimslenswipe: and lets face it jim.bob.dyndns.org is easier than 123.456.789 if ya got to remember it02:02
lenswipeBsims, i cant, its at my place02:02
lenswipeBsims, theres a whole host of reasons why i can02:03
lenswipecant*02:03
* Bsims understands02:03
lenswipei assume normal-buntu is kosha on a netbook?02:03
ActionParsniplenswipe: define 'kosha'02:03
Ben64dRounse: it could be variable bitrate, so it could be 48kbit in some spots02:03
lenswipei just find netbook remix repulsive02:03
bazhang!une | lenswipe02:03

Bsimsleave them a file with instructions on how to change the password02:03

cfhowlettdRounse: bring this question to #ubuntustudio02:04
lenswipebazhang, im on 10.04 - can i just do dist-upgrade02:04
JPetersonActionParsnip: where is it supposed to run from?02:04
BsimsI've done that for windows with screenshots and everything02:04
lenswipebazhang, apologies02:04
ActionParsnipJPeterson: its not something I use dude02:04
JPetersonsomeone else02:04
dRounseBen64: so is that good or bad? i just want good quality but i dont want it taking up my whole hard drive02:04
ActionParsniplenswipe: which release are you using?02:04
JPetersonwhere is ivmware-user-suid-wrapper supposed to run from?02:04
bazhanglenswipe, upgrade, dist-upgrade is something else02:04
dRounseBen64: it doesnt seem different tho02:04
Ben64dRounse: for good quality, you'd probably want more than 128kbit to be honest02:04
lenswipebazhang, upgrade just upgrades the packages02:04
Bsimslenswipe: wanting to upgrade via cli?02:04
lenswipebazhang, i want to take 10.04 to whatever the latest stable version of ubuntu is02:05
nnatomltopActionParsnip, Frankly that discription scares me, As a sys admin I don't want things out of my control.  I like to know EXACTLY what my computer is doing and why and who did it.  Aptdaemon almost is like saying, Users we now allow you to be stupid and install anything you like, Including viruses.02:05
Ben64lenswipe: 10.04 is the latest stable LTS version02:05
lenswipeActionParsnip, 10.04(for now)02:05
dRounseBen64: well i really dont notice much of a difference with lower bitrate02:05
lenswipeBen64, can i upgrade to 11.10 using dist-upgrade?02:05
bazhanglenswipe, you can go to 11.10 now, or wait a couple of months and go directly to 12.04 in one step02:05
lenswipehmm02:06
lenswipeid prefer to go to 11.10 now because 10.04 doesnt have unity so when that suddenly appears this girl might freak02:06
lenswipeid rather things were just different from the beginning02:06
ActionParsniplenswipe: thats why. You could hang til April then install Precise (12.04) as an LTS to LTS upgrade02:07
JPetersonthe /etc/xdg/autostart/vmware-user.desktop is there as it sohuld be, but it's not launched02:07
ActionParsniplenswipe: you don't have to use Unity02:07
Bsimslenswipe: "sudo apt-get install update-manager-core" edit /etc/update-manager/release-upgrades and set Prompt=normal then do "sudo do-release-upgrade"02:07

javier_Hi, my laptop (ubuntu 11.10) is making problems: booting windows 7 or ubuntu takes 20-30 minutes and it's slow and unstable when working. Now I booted from ubuntu live USB, and it works well. Does it tell someone something about where can be the problem. I think is hardware problem, but don't know where... any ideas?02:10

MrKeunerDr_willis, I recenlt enabled a jail configuration for fail2ban.log itself02:24
Bsimscordoval: is the call hardcoded in the script?02:24
Dr_willisMrKeuner:  just random scans. - I also have ssh set up where it onlyu works with key based auth. so no password attempts will work.   and the fail2ban (i think) is set where they get like 3 tries and they are banned.02:24
MrKeunerif someone gets banned three times for 300 sec, they get banned for 10 days for instance02:24
cordovalBsims: you mean configure script?02:25

ActionParsnipvindav: you can do it in a terminal or in nautilus as 2 suggesions03:29
cfhowlettvindav: sudo apt-get purge firefox then go to /home and delete .mozilla03:30
vindavActionParsnip:  What is the terminal command, or can I do it from Gnome where I can find the file  .mozilla   by doing a Ctrl-H in the home folder, then alter ?03:30
ActionParsnipcfhowlett: what isf the user uses thunderbird!?03:30
vindavActionParsnip:  Ok, I'll try that now.03:30
ActionParsnipvindav: mv ~/.mozilla/firefox ~/.mozilla/firefox_old03:30
ActionParsnipcfhowlett: the thunderbird config AND EMAILS are stored in ~/.mozilla too...03:31
cfhowlettvindav: DO NOT delete .mozilla DON"T DO IT!03:31
* ActionParsnip sighs03:31
cfhowlettActionParsnip: once again, brain in neutral, fingers typing.  thanks for the reminder03:31
vindavcfhowlett:  Why ?03:31
Tunix2Okay I installed ndiswrapper, use it to install my wireless driver, did modprobe ndiswrapper and ndiswrapper -m and rebooted when I run 'ndiswrapper -l' DRIVER: XXX DEVICE PRESENT so why cant I see the wlan0 when i run ifconfig or iwconfig?03:31
cfhowlettvindav: as AP rightly pointed out, your thunderbird files are ALSO in .mozilla - you'd lose all your email configurations and probably your emails themselves03:32
ActionParsnipvindav: if you use thunderbird then your emails are also in ~/.mozilla so you should rename ~/.mozilla/firefox which will not touch your thunderbird config (if it is used)03:32
Tunix2Anyone proficient with getting wireless drivers to work with ubuntu?03:33
vindavActionParsnip:  Yes, I also use Thunderbird as my e-mail prgm.  So far, I have purged Firefox from the terminal prgm.  So, how do you suggest I rename the file to ?03:33
ActionParsnipvindav: I gave you the command....technically just something differnet and you are fie03:34
ActionParsnip*fine03:34
vindavActionParsnip:   I also have a file separate from Firefox and it's called   .mozilla-thunderbird   Is that file still associated with Firefox somehow ?03:35
ActionParsnipvindav: thats your emails03:35
Tunix2Anyone know how to work a little ndiswrapper magic?03:36
vindavACtionParsnip:  If I do not delete or rename   .mozilla-thunderbird, I can keep all the e-mail stuff, right ?  And if I delete   .mozilla  which is a completely separate file, will that effect   .mozilla-thunderbird ?03:37
JPetersonwhere is vmware-user-suid-wrapper autostarted from? /etc/xdg/autostart/vmware-user.desktop is there, unchaged, but it's not launched apparently.03:37
Tunix2if not can someone send me an invite to the #linux channel?03:37
JPetersonanswer: the problem was old files in /etc/vmware-tools/ that wasn't removed by --purge remove, probably because they are not used by thw new version03:37
vindavActionParsnip: If I do not delete or rename   .mozilla-thunderbird, I can keep all the e-mail stuff, right ?  And if I delete   .mozilla  which is a completely separate file, will that effect   .mozilla-thunderbird ?03:38
JPetersonso the solution is to --purge remove and delete /etc/vmware-tools/03:38
vindavvindav:  testing03:38
ActionParsnipvindav: if you don't touch the folder it won't touch the config. Why would it be any other way?03:41
ActionParsnipvindav: all you need to do is rename ~/.mozilla/firefox03:41

morrigandsmithyou will need the utility dd rescue and the man page for it03:48
escottAlen, testdisk may not be able to recognize the ext4 structure. so it may not help. All you have to do is figure out what block the partition started on and what block it ended on and go create a new partition (but dont format) of the correct type that starts and stops on the correct blocks03:48

Alenhelp me plz03:56
ActionParsnipvindav: I suggest you install it via the repos03:56
Alen(((03:56
escottAlen, your next step would be to identify where the deleted partition would start and end. if you don't know what those block positions are, you could guess based on the other partitions in the drive. In other words assume that the deleted partition starts at the beginning of free space and extends to the end of the free space. under that assumption you can create a new partition of the correct type (BUT DO NOT FORMAT the new partition)03:56
escottand if you are correct you have restored. if you are wrong you probably trashed the data03:56
morrigandsmithActionParsnip, if the .mozilla folder is still in place it will override default install settings03:56
vindavmorrigandsmith:  I have used the Ctrl-H function to reveal any hidden folders that may be in  .mozilla/03:57

escottAlen, it would be a new partition table entry, but not a new formated partition. this is why you may want to use fdisk instead of gparted. gparted tries to be helpful by formatting the partition which would destroy your data04:00

AlenHow recover logical delited partition in Linux?04:10
LahLahSMACK.04:10
escottAlen, you clearly dont understand how partitions and filesystems work. the filesystem puts a superblock which indicates where the rest of the data can be found at a fixed position from the start of the partition. the partition table is stored in a different part of the disk and does not affect the data stored on the disk. so your task is to get that partition start in exactly the correct place so the superblock is exactly where it needs04:10
escottto be so you can get a readable filesystem04:10
wchan_zykotick9: xdg-open works :) ... yah!04:11
vindavActionParnip:   Are you saying I can just install it now from Ubuntu Software Centre ?04:11

isaac_Hi, I'd be glad if someone could help me. My problem is wubi broke, and since I can't figure out how to fix it I figure I'll just reformat and install it correctly. Is it possible to copy all of the files to an external, and then replace the ones on the fresh install and it would be just like before? Thanks in advance07:01
ActionParsnipisaac_: why do you not have the data backed up?07:02
ActionParsnipisaac_: as in, already backed up?07:02
isaac_No, not already backed up. I would plan on booting from a live cd and transfering to an external drive07:03
erushActionParsnip: Yup, exactly.07:03
ActionParsnip!ICS | erush07:03
ubottuerush: If you want to share the internet connection of your Ubuntu machine with other machines in the network see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Internet/ConnectionSharing07:03
ActionParsnipisaac_: But why is it not already backed up now?07:03
isaac_I didn't know I was supposed to back it up regularly.07:03
isaac_Nor did I know how.07:04
ActionParsnipisaac_: if your drive motor fails and the drive doesn't spin up, where is your data?07:04
ActionParsnipisaac_: if you can copy data to a USB drive, you can backup07:04
isaac_Well it doesn't have anything that important, I just don't want to have to setup apache and etc again.07:04
ActionParsnipisaac_: you can mount the wubi image from the ubuntu live CD.07:04
isaac_So, just going in and copying it all and then pasting on a fresh install will restore everything?07:05
ActionParsnipisaac_: I suggest you REGULARLY backup your data, then you wouldn't have this situation.07:05
isaac_But I can back it up now, can't I? I just need to know if it works to copy over a fresh install with the old one07:05
Kronsbywhat network is this on?07:05
zykotick9Kronsby: freenode07:06
isaac_So just copying everything from the old install to a fresh one will have all the settings and programs the same, ActionParsnip ?07:07
eldubiousmungAlright, I migrated ubuntu to a partition. Should I go into windows and uninstall ubuntu there?07:08
ActionParsnipisaac_: yes, you can mount the wubi disk image in liveCD, like I said..07:10
isaac_But copying it over to a fresh install doesn't break anything?07:10

urlin2ueldubiousmung, the migration scripts I have seen moves it are you sure it is still there, this is with wubi installs.07:12

isaac_Ok, thank you very much :)07:12
ActionParsnipisaac_: you can always backup the default files and you can roll back07:12

MandanWaltherFI, How to give permissions for php file like chmod 777 <phpfile> ?10:20
Ben64reapingwildoats: what are you trying to do?10:20
WaltherFIMandan: don't give 777, just to the user it is necessary10:21

cristian_You have Super grub disc???10:22
cristian_sorry, have you got super grub disc reapingwildoats?10:23

reapingwildoatsI dont think so10:23
Ben64reapingwildoats: what does grub have to do with your external drive?10:23
WaltherFIBen64: is it really so?10:23
reapingwildoatsI have a bootable flash drive with hiren's tools 15.110:23

WaltherFIcristian_: flashdrive should work in a similar fashion as a cd, no difference10:25
MandanWaltherFI, Did u got any tutorial page links for understanding these stuffz ?10:25
Ben64pjotter: 12.04 support is in #ubuntu+110:25
WaltherFIpjotter: #ubuntu+110:25
pjotterWhat does that mean?10:25
pjotterO, sorry. I get it :)10:26
cristian_WaltherFI, yes...but10:26
Xaratasikonia: it could be easy, but it is not: the update fails at all points it needs to change grub settings "/usr/sbin/grub-probe: error: cannot find a device for /boot (is /dev mounted?)."10:26
MandanWaltherFI, Thanks for u r time man !!10:26
WaltherFIMandan: google is your friend, iirc there is a simple tutorial on how to set up php on ubuntu10:26

cristian_you can use the ubuntu guide web page for any problem10:28

Ben64reapingwildoats: anything you want, its how long grub will sit before booting10:28
WaltherFIsacback: what are you looking for? the installs go into various places - excecutalbes go to one place, libraries go to another, etc10:29
WaltherFIsacback: i.e. you can't install anything "to a directory"10:29
WaltherFIsacback: you install something, stuff goes to their appropriate places10:29
WaltherFIsacback: So, what are you trying to do?10:29
reapingwildoatsstill no grub, what the hell10:32
Ben64reapingwildoats: so what does grub have to do with your external drive with IO problems10:34
reapingwildoatsim going to start in failsafe and reformat10:35
Ben64grub doesn't format drives...10:35
SlartibartThe mime type for .mwb(mysql workbench) files is application/zip. How should I config things so that mysql workbench doesn't open all zip files, but only ones with filename suffix mwb?10:36
WaltherFISlartibart: Doesn't the right click - open with - always types like this work?10:36
Ben64Slartibart: change the mime type?10:37
reapingwildoatsfrom grub I can boot into the fail safe though I think10:37
SlartibartWaltherFI: Mysql workbench isn't listed there =[10:37
SlartibartBen64: How do I do that?10:38
Ben64reapingwildoats: you still haven't explained what you're doing with grub and an external drive, it makes no sense10:38
Ben64Slartibart: would have to do it on the server10:38
WaltherFISlartibart: yeah, but if you rightclick one of those files10:38
WaltherFISlartibart: save one of those files on your disk, right click, open with10:38
reapingwildoatsdamo22 wants me to start grub, boot into a single user or fail safe, and reformat the drive10:39
kubancis the usermod -G group-name user-name command OK to add user to group10:40
reapingwildoatsI think to fix ownership?10:40
Ben64reapingwildoats: but you can format from normal ubuntu10:40
SlartibartWaltherFI: Right click->Properties->.. or Right click->Open with both lead to the same list of programs I think? And for some reason it's not listed there =[. I get archive handlers and stuff.10:40
damo22Ben64: no he cant becuase it automounts the drive with errors10:40
Ben64then unmount it..10:40
reapingwildoatsit freezes10:40
damo22Ben64: it hangs10:40

lmaowafflehi folks. would asking about zfs (from native-zfs ppa) be inappropriate? If so, where should I direct these questions? I'm using zfs on ubuntu oneiric11:15
iusBen64: It was a relevant first question though, imposing some contraints ;)11:15
norbert79lmaowaffle: Depends... But give it a try, yet I wouldn't suggest too many would use ZFS here11:15
Ben64ius: eh, probably not very relevant11:16
lmaowafflenorbert79, ok, will do :)11:16

norbert79ius: Just for additional info, you might want to share the version number of both applications and the problem you were experiencing.11:16

iusAnd I should elaborate on that - I don't run Ubuntu, but am experiencing this on another distro, was wondering if Ubuntu was affected too (might help narrow down some version numbers)11:17
lmaowafflehi folks. I'm rather new to zfs.. but testing it as a nas for home network. Firstly, please excuse my ignorance if these questions can be directed elsewhere (channel)I have it setup perfectly with samba shares in freebsd 8.2. As I dualboot said freebsd and ubuntu oneiric, I need to be able to access the zpool from both. The problem is that freebsd was installed first, ubuntu second (on separate disk) and I have to go into BIOS to change the11:17
lmaowaffle boot order of disks to boot into either. This creates a problem for me as the device enumeration will be different (from google hits - could be wrong). How do I specify the devices in /dev/disk/by-id in ubuntu that comprise the zpool?zpool import in ubuntu shows the zpool state: UNAVAIL, missing device. The command lists 2 of the 3 disks that comprise the pool as ONLINE - and no mention of the remaining disk11:17

damo22reapingwildoats: yes11:19
norbert79lmaowaffle: Wow... Well, even before answering: I think it's related to the filesystem handling, since FreeBSD supports ZFS from kernel, while Linux is supporting it not from default. I mean this is some very delicate question and hard to answer right now... I think some people having more ZFS experience might be able to help11:19

lmaowafflenorbert79, yep. I asked the question there already.

theadminScarra3_: That's not really a problem. Append "text" to the kernel line and boot into text mode, after which do what I said15:49
degnOer: You are right, my bad :)15:49

Oermgalloway, did you look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/IptablesHowTo15:49
Scarra3_theadmin: plus I don't know how to install the drivers theres always somthing about turning off xserver15:50
holsteinScarra3_: i have not encoutered that... i believe its due to the type of cards and drivers... i would try some live CD's and see if you can get to a desktop.. even using a knoppix live CD could be helpful... you can "borrow" the xorg.conf from there if it works15:50

mgallowayok, how would I set a static route for both tcp/udp traffic?15:51
mgallowayit is a static route, I just dont know the iptable commands to do it.15:52
holsteinmgalloway: a static IP? you can do that in the gui.. i have never needed to do that to maintain my ddwrt routers though15:52
flintwingelmgalloway: you wouldn't use iptables to setup a static route. There is an Advanced Routing tab under the Setup tab of DD-WRT15:53
mgallowayfor example I want machines behind one ddrwt router on the 192.168.1.x address to be able to ping machines behind another ddwrt router with machines having 192.168.2.x addresses15:53
damo22mgalloway: it depends on the network topology15:54
Jragonholstein: I want ot move the unallocated in sda2 to the unallocated out side of it, so I can have a new os install15:54
freemindsI am trying to mount my SSD, but ubuntu doesn't detect it. Kernel: 2.6.32-38-generic | fdisk -l doesn't show SSD | dmesg doesn't show my SATA 3 Ports15:54
mgallowayI see the advanced routing tab.  Why would it depend on the topology?15:54
damo22mgalloway: because it depends if the 192.168.2.x machines are on the same wire as the 192.168.1.x machines15:55
holsteinfreeminds: i would probable try live CD's till i see it, then make a note of the kernel version, and make sure the hardware is functioning15:55
flintwingelmgalloway: the network topology will tell you how to setup the routes15:55
freemindsholstein, the bios detects the SSD15:55
freemindsso I guess ubuntu should show me at least anything15:56
freeminds*something15:56
freemindsbut I will try the live-cd option15:56
holsteinfreeminds: correct.. but in this case, i would not need to "guess"15:56
mgallowaywould I not just use the advanced routing tab, set destination lan net to the public IP of the other router?15:56
Jragonholstein: Can I do that with GParted?15:57
holsteinfreeminds: its likely just a compatibility issue like you are assuming though... you could poke around for a bug report15:57
getmizanurquit15:57
damo22mgalloway: i dont know how your network is connected15:57
freemindsholstein, ok thanks.15:57
mgallowayI have 2 routers connected by a switch15:57
flintwingelmgalloway: you need to set the routes on both routers at the same time so the "response" packets know how to get back15:57
mgallowayboth routers have a public WAN IP address though.15:57
holsteinJragon: you cant just install to that empty space?15:58
JragonI don't think so, it's a windows os15:58

mgalloway2 ddwrt routers, both with unique public IP addresses15:59
andrew_aumgalloway: do you just need a small amount of hosts pingable?15:59
mgallowayyes15:59
flintwingelmgalloway: sounds more like you want VPNs15:59
holsteinyup.. a VPN tunnel is appropriate for that setup15:59
mgallowayI'd rather just update the iptables and not use VPN15:59
damo22cant you just hook a wire from the lan side to the lan side of each16:00
holsteinmgalloway: AFAIK, that wont work16:00
andrew_auyou could always use 10.10.x.x instead if they are at the same site16:00
Scarra3_theadmin: Shouldn't I go with the drivers from ATI's website?16:00
damo22and use the same subnet16:00
theadminScarra3_: No. Don't unless you're sure you need them... Repositories make more sense16:00
Scarra3_theadmin: But arn't the drivers from ATI's website made specificly for my card16:01
flintwingelmgalloway: iptables would probably be able to do what you want by NAT'ing and MASQUERADING the packets but it will be **horribly** complicated. IIRC even the basic versions of DD-WRT have PPTP built in. Try that16:01
mgallowaythe two routers are in the same room.  But I want it to work if I get a 3rd router and have a site somewhere else.16:01
damo22i dont know enough about vpn to help you16:02
DevilSolutiondegn, sorted, i removed libre office and replaced it with emacs and used sudo apt-get clean and sudo apt-get install -f to clean and re-downlaod the eclipse tar file that i guess was corrupted :)16:02
mgallowayI only know enough to know what I need, I just dont know the best way to go about it16:03
theadminScarra3_: No, lol, you think you're special? There's pretty much a single driver for most ATI cards nowadays16:03
theadminScarra3_: fglrx, that is16:03
mgallowayI think the advanced routing tab in ddwrt is what I need16:03
damo22mgalloway: cant you just hook a wire from the LAN side to the LAn side of each router and add a static route to the routing table of each router16:03
Scarra3_theadmin: So the fglrx drivers are better and the ATI ones?16:03
theadminScarra3_: Err... They ARE the ATI drivers16:04
mgallowayyes, but I need this to work across the internet too16:04
flintwingelmgalloway: no, your traiic will get lost. The 192.168.x.x address space is pfor private LANs only.  Your ISP will not route16:04
andrew_aumgalloway: I would recommend a vpn then16:04

mgallowayI know the 192 addresses are private, but the routers have public WAN addresses, cant i set a static route to their public addresses?16:05
damo22you will get packets going in a circle16:06
mgallowaywhy's that?16:06
flintwingelmgalloway: it might work... i'm trying to work out just what will happen. This is such a "natural" situation for a VPN that I've never encountered such a setup16:07
compdocwhen you set a route, you provide the ip address and the gateway the packets are sent to, but where would you set the ip address of the remote router?16:08
Scarra3_theadmin: are the fglrx drivers automatically in ubuntu 11.10 or do I need to install them seperatly16:08
mgallowayexample would be machine (1.113) pings machine (2.100)  I set a static route from 1.113's router to 2.100's router.  assuming I allow incoming communication on both routers, shouldnt this work?16:08
theadminScarra3_: They're propertiary so we don't include them on the CD. You need to do "sudo apt-get install fglrx"16:08
flintwingelmgalloway: no I don't think routing will work. Even theough the packets from the source LAN will have ther private address rewritten by NAT on the first router the target address will still be the private LAN of the second network so your ISP will blackhole the packets16:09
trever420mgalloway.. sorry i'm entering this late... for clarification what is your router?16:09
trever420did you say DDWRT?16:09
mgallowayI know this is common for VPN, but if a simple static route will work, I'd rather do that16:09
mgallowaywrt54gl, dd-wrt vpn version16:09

trever420not if they are both connected to the wan port tho16:10
theadminScarra3_: "iwlist wlan0 scan" returns anything?16:10
theadminScarra3_: If it does, your wireless likely works :D16:11
trever420to be honest your best bet is vpn between the two routers16:11
trever420i know thats not the solution you are looking for16:11

bananenkampf-dehey there, i'm running windows xp in a virtualbox on oneiric. i want to install the guest additions but virtualbox promted that it was unable to download the guest additions from oracle server. what can i do?16:14
Scarra3_Ya I used ubuntu before but that was a long time about I am trying to make the perminent switch to linux since I really don't like windows and don't use it for anything more than web surfing16:14
trever420mgalloway what's wrong with using a VPN if you dont mind my asking?16:15
mgallowayI have 15 machines behind 1 router, and about 10 behind the other, both routers having vpn interfaces for users, and hosting 60-70 virtual machines16:15
trever420i mean u have DDWRT VPN which allows that i'm sure16:15
mbeierl mgalloway: if you use 192.x and you're trying to ge that to route between the two routers over the public internet, you should realize that means anyone can get into your subnets.  If you do manage to get them to talk to each other with static routes, nothing will prevent rouge traffic from also entering your networks, and all traffic between them will be visible over the public internet.16:15
Dr_willis1Scarra3_:  you do know that MS bought skype? :)16:15
mgallowayI know16:15
trever420i second what mbeier1 says16:16
Scarra3_Dr_willis1: sadly they did16:16
mgallowayyes, i have the vpn version of ddwrt, I was only trying not to use the option for creating a vpn tunnel between the routers16:16

Linthow is called the thing that mounts disks in /media?16:17
Scarra3_Dr_willis1: They use skype16:17

mbeierlScarra3_, btw, I use skype on 64b Linux and it works well for me.  Not sure about the latest (v5?) with three-way calling, though16:18
mgallowaythanks guys for all of your help.  I will look into this more, and see if I have any other questions!16:18
Linti mean specifically hd partition mounting16:18
Scarra3_mbeierl: Do I download skype from their website or the repos16:19
bananenkampf-deskype in the repos is good! use it since yesterday16:19

EtgarDizzhi all, I'm having trouble changing login window theme... the "login window" option doesn't exist in my "administration" menu, just "login screen"...16:20
theadminLint: Gnome? GVFS. KDE has it's own libs too, and I beleive XFCE uses the same way as gnome does16:21
damo22mgalloway: you could use 10.x.x.x addresses and not be restricted by 255 machines on the one subnet16:21

EtgarDizzDr_willis1: 11.04 with gnome classic theme16:22
Lintif they all are mounted in /media in same way in all des it must be same software, don;t feed me disinformation16:22
GTRsdkWhat's the package name for the Printing settings in the System Settings?16:22
_MarcusHello, ActionParsnip yesterday told me to edit /etc/default/grub and add something to it to run command line(not load GUI), Seeing how ActionParsnip isn't here, what do I add there?16:22
biaxs#backtrack-it16:23
zykotick9Lint: look into fuse (possibly udev as well)16:23
qo_opDr_willis1, kk, i just see a black screen, no text on booting :/16:23
compdocLint, you mean automatic mounting of external drives and cds?16:23
Dr_willis1EtgarDizz:  if its using the gdm3 - i dont think its very themeable at all.  you can do some minor changes - wallpaper and a few otehr things.16:23
_MarcusSo what do I add to /etc/default/grub to make it run command line instead of GUI?16:23
Dr_willis1EtgarDizz:  i recall some tricks to run   the gnome settings tools as the gdm user, that let you change the fonts and colors and a few other things.16:23
theadminLint: They're mounted in /media just because it's the standard place for this stuff. Look at FHS.16:24
Dr_willis1EtgarDizz:  but its a bit of a hassle16:24
zykotick9!text | _Marcus16:24
ubottu_Marcus: To start your system in text-only mode append 'text' (without the quotes) to the kernel line in the grub menu. You can access the grub menu by pressing Esc (Grub legacy) or Shift (Grub2) during boot. For more info see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BootOptions#Text%20Mode16:24
Linti have no qualification required to look into anything, but I need to know how the mount options for hard drive partitions are defined16:24
_Marcuszykotick9: Thank you16:24
Dr_willis1!udev16:24
imbezolLint: harddrive partitions are generally not mounted in /media16:24
imbezolLint: options are specified in /etc/fstab16:24
Lintof course they are16:25
xxxxxxi had the same problem with a black splash screen. To fix it i used the grub boot repair disc16:25
imbezol/media is usually removable devices16:25
EtgarDizzDr_willis1: so what needs to be different in my installation in order to see the login window options?16:25
Dr_willis1auto mounting is a differnt aspect then system partitions.16:25
qo_opwhat does this meens *** Notice -- TS for #ubuntu.no changed from 1328717042 to 1264836165 ?16:26
xxxxxxwith the repair disc there is an option to show splash screen without the need to re-install grub or mess about with any settings16:26
Dr_willis1EtgarDizz:  Not sure. I recall running the gnome settings as the gdm user and changeing the colors. and tweaking the default wallpaper.  I think theres some info on doing it on the webupd8 blog site and most likely on the askubuntu.com site. I use 11.10 now. so dont recall much about gdm3 tweaking.16:26

Lintstill where are options for automatically mounted partitions coming from?16:28
quiescensqo_op: maybe bad time of day there or something, i am not sure16:29
ikoniaLint: the options are determained between udev and (used to be hal) depenidng on things such as file system type16:29
Dr_willis1EtgarDizz:  11.10 switched to lightdm - which is not very themeable at all either.  So i suggest not worrying about trying to theme the login screen, other then perhaps to change the wallpaper.16:29

_MarcusWhat, I just added "text", did "sudo update-grub", and restarted the Ubuntu machine, and it still went to GUI16:30
Dr_willis1I thought it was udev rules...16:30
ikoniaLint: I believe part hard coded part dyanmic depending on the option, eg: the mount point is taken from the device label (therefore dyanamic)16:30
ikoniaDr_willis1: don't think the udev rules set the mount options, it used to be done through hal16:30

azrielim trying to run a java class file on my computer with java (filename) but its saying the class isnt found18:19

no_gravityHelp! Help! Ubuntu killed my Debian installation. I have a debian base installation at sda7 that i use as /boot for an encrypted debian installation at in an lvm in sda8. Today i booted into my ubuntu partition and it updated grub. Now when I boot into sda7, i dont get asked for the password for sda8 anymore. Instead the debian base system at sda7 is booted. What can I do to get back my main debian installation?18:34

ubottunetsplit is when two IRC servers of the same network (like freenode) disconnect from each other, so users on one server stop seeing users on the other. If this is happening now, just relax and enjoy the show. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Netsplit18:35
