Once they are generated, (if it isn't possible to generate them into the folder), just use "mv currentlocation newlocation" in your shell script (Ex. mv /home/whiteye/keys /home/targetfolder/keys)00:00

sdb2I was doing an rsync from one hard drive to another using the ubuntu livecd and it says it copied finally but the directory I copied to is empty00:07
spitziHi fatties. I've resized the Win7 partition on my other harddisk. The grub menu appears as before, but now the Win7 entry in the grub menu points to a wrong location. How can I fix this ? Thansk00:08

zykotic10!english > cipher__ like this ;)00:08
ubottucipher__, please see my private message00:08
sdb2is there a command you need to do to commit the changes to disk or something?00:08
spitziIs it because I called you fatties ?00:08
Nach0zspitzi: probably so.00:08
zykotic10sdb2: sync but that's usually not required00:08
Nach0zspitzi: do sudo update-grub or sudo update-grub200:09
spitziBut I meant it as a term of endearment :-|00:09
spitziNach0z - will try, hold on ...00:09
sdb2zykotic10: I see what happened. there was a space in the directory I copied to so it truncated "Disk Backups" to "Disk"00:09
cipher__This is not a forum for you to exercise your sadist tendencies spitzi.00:09
Nach0zwhich one you use depends on if you use grub2 or grub legacy, I'm assuming you use the default so it should be update-grub200:10
zykotic10sdb2: spaces can be a pain "do you know" how/ to/ deal/ with/ them?00:10
sdb2zykotic10: isn't it "\ " ? I just tab-completed from terminal and this is what happened :(00:10
spitziNach0z, I too assume that I use grub2. But if it turns out I actually use grub, will update-grub2 screw the grub menu ?00:10
* zykotic10 FAILS with / \ test00:11
zykotic10sdb2: you are correct00:11
sdb2zykotic10: doesn't seem to matter which is correct anyway lol..00:11
Nach0zspitzi: no00:11
zykotic10sdb2: / means a directory, big difference00:11
Nach0zspitzi: just try each, won't affect anything if you use the wrong one00:11
sdb2zykotic10: right I get that but even though \ is correct, rsync ignored it anyway00:12
Chipzzzsdb2: no problem, really, just rename the directory00:12
spitziNach0z, ok, done. Do something else before reboot ?00:12
Nach0zspitzi: nope. just reboot. you can check the location of your windows partition in your /boot/grub/grub.cfg against the location in fdisk -l though00:13
sdb2Chipzzz: yeah thankfully it looks like everything copied to that folder instead.  but rsync told me there were errors and I want to know what they were. I guess I should run it again and see what it tries to transfer incrementally?00:13
ZTZi have not been on here in a while now is there still karaoke music on mirc00:13
spitziI'm more concerned that the grub-update didn't output Windows 7 as one of the options in the terminal.00:13
spitzi(and neither did grub-update2)00:13
Chipzzzsdb2: that's probably a good idea... did you remember to copy recursively and to do the hidden files?00:14
zykotic10sdb2: lost+found is a common issue for rsync (use --exclude) to prevent00:14
Nach0zspitzi: it's update-grub and update-grub2, not grub-update >_>00:14
Nach0zgotta go for now thogh.00:14
sdb2Chipzzz: I used -aP which implies recursion.. not sure about hidden files00:14
spitziNach0z, yeah, meant the other way around.00:14
spitziOk, I'll reboot. Thanks and possibly BRB.00:15
sdb2zykotic10: it's copying from an ntfs drive so I don't think there is lost+found00:15
zykotic10sdb2: that's correct, only on gnu/linux filesystems00:16

willdabeastcfhowlett, I just received it from my girlfriends brother who works with Lockheed Martin so I have no idea what he did with it. But he says it should work fine.01:40
zykotic10willdabeast: what is the issue?  did you mean "it will NOT show"?01:41
willdabeastzykotic10, it will show the wireless networks, but it will not finish connecting to the network. Wired connection works fine.01:41
cfhowlettwilldabeast: "fine" is relative.  If YOU think it's slow there might some things to consider.  Personally, I wouldn't install a full-flavored ubuntu on a  netbook.  Lighter versions are less demanding on limited specifications and resources: xubuntu lubuntu01:42
zykotic10cfhowlett: where are you getting "slow" from?01:42

MrKeunerhello, ubuntu advertises that dell has some ubuntu preinstalled systems. However, when you click the link, Dell reports there isn't any. Why is this mismatch?01:44
sancriscfhowlett, my netbook is 2 years-old01:44
OerHekscfhowlett, ubuntu should run fine on a netbook, that is why there is no netbook edition anymore.01:44
MrKeunerhttp://www.dell.com/ubuntu this is the link Ubuntu advertises01:44
kleeehi all!01:44
cfhowlettMrKeuner: need to ask Dell about that one...01:44
zykotic10MrKeuner: i believe dell dropped that offer01:45
kleeei have an nvidia 8600m gt01:45
willdabeastcfhowlett, this one is pretty nice, seems to be very quick with lucid on it. I just installed updates with a wired connection actually, that may fix it one sec.01:45
kleeewhy ubuntu auto installed 173 version?01:45
Demonstratekleee: your problem is 8600 (M)01:45
cfhowlettMrKeuner: system 76 sells OEM ubuntu installed.01:45
Demonstrate173 is a REVISION . not a model #01:45
kleeeyep but 8500m gt is supported by latest nvidia drivers01:46
MrKeunerzykotic10, I have done this in the past. Constantly Ubuntu advertises some Dell configurations however, cannot locate these configurations on Dell website01:46
kleeeshould i use current or post release?01:46

zykotic10MrKeuner: ask dell?01:46

kleeeit's so strange01:47
Demonstratelike i said.01:47
DemonstrateDO NOT. play around with graphics drivers. ubuntu compiles the drivers that they've tested.01:48
kleeeDemonstrate: maybe there's a bug in Ubuntu 11.10 amd64 with latest drivers with my card?01:48
Demonstrateand release them all other drivers come with no support, unless it's from the community.01:48
Demonstratethere is NO bug.01:48

MatiasuI just connected a mobile in usb network mode and linux doesn't recognize it. I did the same from a live cd and it works fine. what can be wrong?01:50
Demonstratekleee: there's a reason 173 is in the ubuntu software center, because ubuntu has tested it and they "deem" it as the best most stable release.01:50
MrKeunerzykotic10, doesn't make sense to ask Dell. They will tell me that they don't have any jurisdiction on Ubuntu website01:50

dRounseBen64: well i need it to be able to stream movies and files, and i dont want the processor struggling to do it... i am currently using the celeron d in my desktop and i notice when i watch youtube or converting music it slows down considerably03:32
damo22dRounse, converting music is cpu intensive03:32
zykotic10dRounse: so is flash03:32
Ben64just serving files is not very cpu intensive though03:33
dr_willisdepends on the codecs and sizes alsi03:33
user___hello everyone03:33
dRounsei know that but its like i cant do anything else while im converting or watching youtube.... so should i use the celeron d for my server and the athlon II as my desktop? i will be doing the converting on the desktop not the server03:33
dr_willisserving over samba  is not that intensive.  vlc streaming hd video can be.03:34
dullfirehow do I turn off firefox's auto updates (there isnt a check box for it under preferances like in windows) or where would be the place to ask?03:34

zykotic10dullfire: firefox will update though Ubuntu's regular software updates03:35
cfhowlettdullfire: ffox edit>preferences>advanced03:35
Ben64dRounse: which model processors?03:35
dr_willisthe package manager handles ff updates . unless you installed it as a user.03:35
dRounsedr_willis: well itll mostly be to things like boxee and other media players for tvs maybe the occasional movie to my tablet03:35
dullfireah I see ok that explains it; the reason is I do not like programs just going out and dling what ever they want; but since I told the update manager to install the stuff its been waiting on it fine03:36
dr_willisdRounse:  bixee box can do samba.  so not a big cpu hog.03:36
dRounseBen64: Intel Celeron D 3.46GHz03:36
comawhitedullfire, well it's updating. You like using outdated, and possible security holed stuff?03:36
dRounseBen64:Not sure about the Athlon II03:36
Ben64dRounse: well wow... that celeron is slow.03:37
dRounseBen64: i know :/03:39
dRounseBen64: is too slow for a server?03:39
Ben64dRounse: there are a ton of athlon II's though, so I can't tell you how much faster the athlon is03:39
Ben64dRounse: depends what you want it to serve03:39
dRounseBen64: just streaming movies, and files. the movies will go to boxee or something of the sorts and files to my computer and laptop03:40
dRounseBen64: it will only be serving to one boxee at a time, also could i overclock it? the case i have for my server will keep it extremely cool03:41
Ben64dRounse: i'm not sure what that means exactly, but it would be fine for transferring files, not so good for transcoding media and things like that03:41
meskarunedRounse: over clocking depends on your hardware.03:42
dRounseBen64:well i have a Boxee Box and i will point it at my server so i can watch the movies from the server instead of needing to plug in a hard drive03:42
dRounsemeskarune: would it be possible to do with a celeron d?03:42
meskarunedRounse: I mean that some hardware has a benifit from overclocking. others do not since they aren't downclocked.03:43
aBoundDoesn't overclocking shorten the lifespan of the CPU?03:45
meskaruneaBound: as long as you do it within the limits of your hardware, it won't shorten the life of the CPU03:46
Ben64the celeron d is such a low performance cpu though, it wont make much of a difference03:46
meskaruneyou have to be careful overclocking or you can fry your system03:46
dRounsemeskarune: i looked it up just now and they say that you can overclock them to 4.6GHz but it says it needs better cpu cooling, but the chassis my computer is in has two 23cm fans and two 120mm fans03:47
dRounseand then theres the cpu fan03:47
Ben64dRounse: you'd be better off getting a new cpu : /03:47

Braden`How do I upgrade only one item using apt?04:33
dsnydersmeskarune, ssh is nowhere near a remote desktop system.04:33
Braden`It wants to upgrade everything04:33
Ben64Braden`: you should upgrade everything04:33
nathan28dsnyders: the ssh box can export an x11 session04:33
Braden`How do I upgrade only one item?04:33
meskarunedsnyders: yes ssh is. but if you want gui check out the program teamviewer :P04:33
dsnydersnathan28, true, but again, it is not rdp.04:34
meskaruneBraden: to install a single item you do "apt-get isntall <program>"04:34
randomuserdsnyders, also see ssh -X, vnc, rdp04:34
zykotic10nathan28: ssh's X forwarding is typically not a "session" but a program (i've never seen ssh do an entire desktop, expect by using VNC over SSH)04:35
randomuserdsnyders, no need to go to a proprietary program like ream viewer04:35
Braden`Oh thank you04:35
randomuserzykotic10, i'm running an entire session via X forwarding right now04:35
nathan28dsnyders: what do you want to do w/ the ssh box?04:35

macmartineI have God (godrb.com)  monitoring a couple resque processes. When Ubuntu tries to reboot, it gets stuck in a loop waiting for the resque processes to quit and they never do. Why wouldn't Ubuntu be able to kill the processes? THhe pid files have the correct pid's04:38

dsnydersnathan28, windows has a system called remote desktop, which it uses to connect to other windows boxes.  I was just casually asking if there was a server for linux.  I'm fully aware that I could do a VNC and ssh -x, etc.  I was just wondering if there was something that played with the microsoft client so that I didn't have to install a bunch of stuff on the windows box.04:39
randomuserzykotic10, okay, enjoy!04:39
meskaruneI only mention teamviewer because its very easy to install and set up for new users who just want something to work out of box04:39
randomuserdsnyders, rdesktop04:39
=== Gskellig is now known as Gskellig|away
meskaruneplus it works really well with windows04:39
nathan28isn't putty platform neutral?04:40
MrBusinessWell, presumably anything set up as a service defines specific interfaces, and they may all employ certain techniques for tracking their PIDs. I'm trying to write some services, but I don't really feel that I have a good, logical grasp of what it is that I am writing.04:40
randomusermeskarune, everyone is a potential contributor, with a bug report or usability feedback at the very least.04:40
randomusermeskarune, unless you point them at something like teamviewer - it does the job, but i would be suprised if it could be supported here04:40
MrBusinessI guess the /etc/init.d/skeleton is a potential starting point04:41
randomuserMrBusiness, i suggest you try ##linux04:41
randomuserMrBusiness, or #ubuntu-devel, i suppose; its mostly point and click support here04:41
meskarunerandomuser: I do not see your point at all. team viewer has its own support website, so why would #ubuntu need to support it?04:42
dsnydersrandomuser, rdesktop is the linux client end, no?04:42
MrBusinessthanks randomuser04:42
randomusermeskarune, this is the ubuntu support channel04:42
ana-slmanهناك من هو وقح هنا ويدعي مساعدتي04:42
meskarunerandomuser: a user asked for a simple remote desktop program. I gave them an answer. that is all. what are you getting so upset about?04:42
randomuserdsnyders, yes. SPICE is nice, if you have the hardware for it, VNC is standard for every OS04:42
dsnydersana-slman, this is an eglish channel.04:42
randomusermeskarune, you gave them an off-topic answer04:43

linuxloveryeah meskarune05:26
bobo37773damo22: Sorry. Your right. I read it wrong.05:26

dr_willishe cant seem to comprehend the simple act of copying a file to a dir... thats all that is needed for his fix.05:29
meskarunedamo22: it is a system information utility05:29
zykotic10!info conky | damo2205:29
zamieldamo22: its an on-desktop report on stats and other data info... quite handy05:29
nathan28dr_willis: hey, everybody starts somewhere... and everybody needs backups05:29
ubottudamo22: conky (source: conky): highly configurable system monitor (transitional package). In component universe, is optional. Version 1.8.1-2 (oneiric), package size 3 kB, installed size 68 kB05:29

macmartineI have a couple commands in /etc/rc.local that are supposed to start processes on startup but they aren't starting. What might cause that?05:30
dr_williscp scriptname.sh  ~/home/yourusername/autorun (or was it autostart)05:30
bobo37773wookienz: Are they all exactly the same?05:31
wookienzbobo37773: the files the same name? or the strong in each file?05:31
nathan28linuxlover: you need to fulfill a few conditions: 1. have a legit script 2. have the script be executable 3. have another script call the script when you log in05:31
bobo37773wookienz: No I mean the string05:31
wookienzthe string is the saem05:31
dr_willisim very sure the conky faq/docs also menton how to do this. They reccomend a delay in the script so conky starts about 20 sec after the desktop loads.05:31
linuxlover_hi meskarune05:32
linuxlover_the net got disconnectedd05:32
bobo37773dr_willis: you are right. Always use sleep if you can with conky05:32
bobo37773wookienz: use -i switch with sed05:32
dr_willisand i DO recall conky not working well with Unity and the dash when i tried it a few months back.05:32
meskaruneconky uses a ton of system resources. it will drain laptop battery life quickly05:33
linuxlover_meskarune i use a desktop05:33

nathan28oh grub05:35
meskarunelinuxlover: what DE/WM are you using? just add the script to your start up. tell us if you are using gnome or kde or xfce please05:35
nathan28blind luck or foreknowledge work better there05:35
linuxlover_i use gnome meskarune GNOME 2.3205:35
nathan28linuxlover_: 2.32? i thought the GNOME devs banned non-3.x05:36
meskarunelinuxlover: then in the gnome preferences there should be session. you can add the script there to start, and have conky start after it.05:36
linuxlover_any other way? what about startup applications?05:36
meskarunelinuxlover: I mean just put "bash /path/conky.sh" to it05:37
wookienzbobo37773: thanks.05:37
bobo37773wookienz: Your welcome.05:37
meskarunelinuxlover: add it to start up applications. it will start when you login ><05:37
linuxlover_in startup?05:37
zamiellinuxlover: you can also add it as the last line to the .profile in the root of your home directory.05:38
nathan28linuxlover_: make sure the conky.sh file is executable, otherwise nothing will happen05:38

bobo37773ruslan_osmanov: Well it can delete keys. That is all I know.05:59
ruslan_osmanovbobo37773, thanks. I'll try\06:00
meskaruneruslan_osmanov: can you just delete the user and his/her home director if they are no longer using the system?06:00
bobo37773StepNjump: What do you mean by "best"? Fastest, byte by byte, file at a time, etc.. etc...06:00
meskarunebest is subjective06:01
ruslan_osmanovmeskarune, sure. I was just curious about the keys06:01
bobo37773nathan28: Did you find an alternate way for a range like that?06:02
wookienzhi, i need a script/commend that will go through each file in a directory, search for a specific "string", return the file names, then allow me ot use those file names to do some sed scripting on. any ideas?06:03
StepNjumpzykotic10: Does it back up to a file or do I need to create a partition of the same size for the destination?06:03
zykotic10StepNjump: it supports files, as well as compressed files.  It also has network support.06:03
StepNjumpSomething easy bobo37773 ... Something that compresses the system into 1 file (or a few) so I could revert back to a previous date in case of mishap06:04
meskarunewookienz: sed and awk would probably work06:04
bobo37773ruslan_osmanov: On your system is there this folder -->  ~/.gnome2/keyrings06:04

bobo37773wookienz: You can take the ouput from your find command and use sed with it. Is that what you want?06:10

wookienzthe string im looking for to remove is very complicated and i cant work out how to escape some of the characters to allow sed to use it as a string and thus remive it outright stright up instead of removing the entire line and then hvaing to put back a <?php stanza...06:19
wookienzbut if i can figuyre out the escaping then one less command i would need06:19

StepNjumpI will try again but...06:52
StepNjumpI have 5 partitions on sda.. too many to back up06:52
bobo37773keniobats: Well powertop is a cli application. As fas as cpu frequency scaling I think ubuntu uses this by default. You know something like performance, on demand, etc..06:53

Daniel_WMDE_will have a look anyway07:32
hardwiredDaniel_WMDE_: maybe it comes bundled with gpg07:32

punkmexicJordan_U, i use grub 2 maybe07:33

urfr332g0punkmexic, you might look at Jordan_U link as well.07:35
Daniel_WMDE_enigmail seems to interact with a passphrase agent, but gpg on the command line doesn't07:35
SubjectOneheyah Daniel_WMDE_, i have sinds today the same problem07:35
hardwiredDaniel_WMDE_: it could be enigmail caches your pw without gpg agent, why not?07:35

Daniel_WMDE_SubjectOne: i have first noticved yesterday. somethign is strange...07:36
SubjectOnegpg no longer want to work via cli07:36
Daniel_WMDE_hardwired: because when i try to change enigmails setting, it explicitly tells me that it can't because i'm using an agent and i need to go there to change the sessing.07:36
anoccan't i just somehow save the sudo pass into this script line??: sudo ntpdate time1.mikes.fi07:36

hardwiredDaniel_WMDE_: what does ps acx|grep agent  tell you? is the agent running?07:37
Ben64anoc: no, the best way is root's crontab like i said07:37
Daniel_WMDE_hardwired: ssh-agent is running, as expected. nothign else07:37
Daniel_WMDE_or do ssh and gnupg share an agent now?07:38
Daniel_WMDE_in theory, that sounds like a nice idea07:38
Jordan_Upunkmexic: Change GRUB_DEFAULT=0 in /etc/default/grub to GRUB_DEFAULT="Windows 7 (loader) (on /dev/sda1)"    then run "sudo update-grub".07:38

bobo37773Is ssh built into the kernel now?07:38
Daniel_WMDE_i don't want gpg top use an agent!07:38
hardwiredDaniel_WMDE_: I'd get the agent running (it's handy if you use gnupg in more than one program). That my just solve your problem.07:38
bobo37773By default I mean.07:38
zykotick9anoc: there is some way to add commands to sudoers so passwords aren't required.  Sorry i don't know how off the top of my head.07:38
punkmexicso i dont need to edit grub.cfg Jordan_U ???07:39
Daniel_WMDE_hardwired: i could get the agent up and set it to a very short timeout.... that would kind of solve my problem07:39
hardwiredDaniel_WMDE_: oh sorry :-) didn't mean to suggest a "solution" you don't want.07:39
Daniel_WMDE_some recent upgrade to ubuntu causes enigmal to cache passphrases forever07:39
Daniel_WMDE_this is a BIG security problem!°07:39
hardwiredDaniel_WMDE_: I trust the agent more than enigmail to keep my passphrase securely in memory...07:39
bobo37773anoc: echo password | sudo -S command07:40
Jordan_Upunkmexic: You never edit /boot/grub/grub.cfg. The proper place for changing grub preferences like this is /etc/default/grub.07:40
Daniel_WMDE_hardwired: yea, perhaps. what scares me is that currently, it's in memory forever.07:40
Daniel_WMDE_it doesn't time out07:40
Ben64bobo37773: thats incredibly dangerous07:40
Daniel_WMDE_hardwired, SubjectOne: where should we report the issue? enigmail? ubuntu?07:40

Jordan_Upunkmexic: Correct.07:42
hardwiredDaniel_WMDE_: no idea.07:42
Ben64bobo37773: its a very bad method, and physical access isn't the only way that would mess you up07:42
bobo37773Ben64: Could you elaborate a little? Like a scenario or something?07:43
Ben64just don't give bad advice like that to people here07:43
anocBen64: Thanks. Now i made a sudo crontab and put the script there. lets wait and see does it run. Do i need to restart/reload crontab somehow?07:43
punkmexicJordan_U, how do i know if i should put  GRUB_DEFAULT=1 or  GRUB_DEFAULT=2 if i want to put ubuntu again as default?07:44
Ben64anoc: no, crontab goes all the time. what you should have in it though is "ntpdate <server>" don't run the script from cron07:44
zykotick9Ben64: not sure if it applies, but if you use ntpd you should not be using ntpdate07:44
Jordan_Upunkmexic: Ubuntu will be the first menu entry, and since menu entries are counted from 0, that would mean that to restore Ubuntu as default you would put GRUB_DEFAULT=007:44

ubottufsck is the FileSystem ChecKer, which runs automatically when you boot if you didn't shutdown cleanly. Type "man fsck" for information on running it manually. The command "sudo touch /forcefsck && sudo shutdown -r now" will force a reboot and a filesystem check; "sudo touch /fastboot" will skip a filesystem check at next reboot08:19

phixHalexander9000: yeah dpkg -l | grep -i qt   will show you09:55
phixyashshah: You can use the notify command line application to stick stuff up there09:55
phixeona3: What was the question?09:55
kbotnen_yashshah, notify-send09:55
eona3phix: How should I proceed?09:55
Halexander9000phix: http://pastebin.com/NTvjV9Dd09:56
yashshahYeah i would like to make the same thing as notify-send09:56
phixeona3: with what?09:56
eona3phix: it installed the boot loader to the second Truecrypt drive and it wont boot on the primary drive I told it to install on. How should I recover? thx09:56
phixeona3: why are you trying to use trucrypt for ubuntu?  use LUKS (which comes with ubuntu)09:57
yashshahkbotnen, Do you have any idea how notify-send access the notification area and notifies it?09:57
kbotnen_why cant you use the notify-send itself?09:57
eona3phix: ok, how should I get it to boot though09:57
kbotnen_else yo uhave to go through the dbus.09:57
phixeona3: it just boots09:57
phixinstall it on the MBR09:58
phixthe grub boot loader that is09:58
eona3phix: whats the easisest way to do that?09:58
phixeona3: There are docs on the ubuntu site that explains how to do this, I recommend you read them09:58
eona3phix: thanks...09:58
phixeona3: The easiest way is to spend 5 - 10 minutes reading the docs09:58
yashshahkbotnen_: What s dbus?09:58
eona3phix: any chance I can recover the second HDD that has Truecrypt that it installed on?09:59
eona3the boot loader09:59
phixeona3: you basically boot from CD, go through the setup, then in the disc manager you choose a partition to set as encryption drive, you need to use the alternate or server ubuntu CD, you cant do this with the esktop CD09:59
phixdesktop even09:59
phixeona3: no idea09:59

EuanI was tired.11:11
EuanI wasn't paying attention.11:12
ikoniaEuan: you've probably corrupted your install or damaged your disk then11:12
EuanHow can I fix that?11:12
ikoniaEuan: if it's dropping to the grub shell it means it can't see the disk, which is possibly because you've damaged the disk powering it off11:12
Euanthe windows 7 is working fine11:12
viddymore likely the filesystem, no? :i11:12
Euanboth on the same hard drive11:12

viddyand the world will be a better place11:13
ikoniaEuan: if the file system was just messy, I'd still expect it to start to boot, but warn you that the file system needed fscking11:13
ikoniathe fact that it's refusing to even show the grub menu11:13

RawProducehow can I downgrade MySQL to 5.0.45? I can't seem to find a .deb on google11:40
ubernoobI have a multiboot system with W7, Ubuntu, F16 and Debian Squeeze. Ubuntu and F16 share a swap partition (even though I set up Ubuntu to have its own, it "took it over, during the install"). What I want to know is, would it be safe to remove F16 and the swap partition (I plan to install PCBSD)?11:41
=== doug_ is now known as Dwade09
RawProduceso there's no way to downgrade MySQL? Will I need to compile it from source11:43
alerinaldiRawProduce: you should remove it and then install it from older DEBs11:44
alerinaldibut I just joined, so I don't know exactly what you need11:44
alerinaldiI could be wrong11:44
overcluckerubernoob: it;s safe to remove it. you might also want to remove the swap line on any /etc/fstab that tries to use it on boot11:45
overcluckerubernoob: but nothing will break if it's not there11:45
djotaubernoob: you may consider using virtualization, like virtualbox f.e.11:45
ubernoobthanks overclucker11:46
RawProducealerinaldi: how can I specify that I want to install an old DEB?11:46
ubernoobdjota, I've never used any virtualisation on Linux. I always assumed my system would be too low-spec for truly realising the benefits of having a virtual machine11:47
RawProduceah, nvm11:47
ubernoobI only have 4GB of ram and this is an old Athlon x211:47
alerinaldiRawProduce: you'll need to manually download it11:47
djotaubernoob: you don't need a lot of resources for virtualbox, it's performance is really great, and the software is free11:47
FatDudeRawProduce: Please locate an older DEB version of the package in question and execute 'dpkg -i something.deb'11:47
overcluckerubernoob: only? that's more than enough to warrant not using swap11:48
i_is_brokeubernoob, ive ran vbox on an old p311:48

RawProducealerinaldi: thanks, getting some hits on that11:49
alerinaldiRawProduce: np! remember to download the dependencies, too!11:49
ubernooboverclucker, I set up swap partitions out of habit, as the install pretty much asks me to arrange partitions I arrange all the ones I used to do when I first tried Linux.11:49
ubernooboverclucker, doesn't that affect performance?11:49
ubernoobI thought having a swap partition was better than the windows style swap files?11:50
overcluckerubernoob: dd if=/dev/zero of=/swapfile bs=1M count=1000; mkswap /swapfile would give you a1 gig swap file on /11:50
ubernoobok, well I'm going to give VirtualBox a go first, then if I feel I still need to, I'll scrub F16 and Debian and install PCBSD properly.11:50
LintI cannot see language selection option in new ubuntu login screen11:51
overcluckerubernoob: there shouldn't be any performance loss11:51
Lintubernoob, it doesn't matter, all filesystem calculations are made faster than drive operates11:51
parapanhi there fellows > is there anyone able to support some sql/perl problems ??11:51
ubernooboverclucker, whilst we're talking about swap files/partitions, is there any situation in which having them actually makes your system slower?11:52
overcluckerubernoob: overly high vmswappiness can affect system performance11:54
ubernooboverclucker: so on a 4GB system, what would you say is the ideal size?11:55
overcluckerubernoob: 60 is  default, is probably a good number for that amount of ram11:57
phix60 what?11:57
phixah, I usually assign 50 - 60Gb to swap, and make /tmp and /var/tmp tmpfs :)  10 or so Gb each11:58

Canis__I'll check that. Thanks12:00
ActionParsnipphix: then you'll only need 8Gb swap12:00
XATRIXwhat can i do in such situation12:00
Guest71832I know, Just wondering12:00
phixActionParsnip: nah I 50 - 100Gb for swap as I mount /tmp and /var/tmp as tmpfs (which uses swap too)12:00
RawProducelol what, so /tmp is in RAM while RAM isn't full, then you load some programs, max out your RAM and are forced to wait for /tmp to swap out?12:00

phixRawProduce: how so?  makes sense to me12:01
Ben6450GB swap is hugely excessive12:02
RawProduceeh, different strokes I guess12:02

XATRIXBen64: it's not a good idea to12:08
rayden_overclucker,  can u tell me how to run .bat files?12:08
Ben64XATRIX: if you can't even ls, the system is pretty messed up12:08
XATRIXi'd like to fix it... reinstall is only way for MS users12:08
munso is each home and root a separate partition?12:08
Ben64XATRIX: do you know what you did to break it?12:08

overcluckerrayden_: windows batch files?12:09
rayden_overclucker, yes12:09
rayden_overclucker, i want to start a windows server for a game12:09
overcluckerrayden_: not sure how useful they will be on linux12:09
XATRIXBen64: i'm not sure... but i have some feeling it was hacked off12:10
overcluckerrayden_: check out wine, or virtualbox12:10
munare there particular benefits if /home and / are logical partitions inside an extended partition?12:10
ubernoobok, downloaded virtualbox, found a video showing how to install W7 on virtualbox, I figure PCBSD should install in much the same way.12:10
Ben64XATRIX: without knowing the best solution is reinstall...12:10
ubernoobreally surprised at how low the memory allowance is12:10
llutzXATRIX: if a system was hacked, reinstallation from clean media is the only way to go12:10
ubernoobseems very strange12:10
ubernoobanyway, thanks all.12:11
ubernoobhope this works :)12:11
LintXATRIX, if you suspect you've been hacked, you should format your system and redeploy everything12:11
llutzmun: just the benefit not to worry about partition count limitation (max 4 primaries)12:11
Canis__Yes, that's what I meant.  I'm just waking up still.  Horrible at complete thoughts.12:11
munllutz, right. do you know why Extended partition is greyed out in my gparted?12:11
llutzmun no12:12
Ben64its always good to have an extended partition so you can add more if you want later12:12
munBen64, could the windows and linux partitions site inside an extended partition?12:12

Lintmun but windows need to have an active primary partition to boot from12:14
munLint, right. so does that mean windows has to be on its own primary partition then?12:14
Lintno, it requires a small primary partition, just several megabytes. everyhting else may be placed in extended partition12:15
Lintmun windows 7 creates 100MB boot partition by default12:15
omidoLint:  Windows 7 is awesome12:16
omidoUbuntu is a windows 7 wanna be12:16
munLint, so can I just leave some unallocated space or do i need to create that primary partition?12:16
Squarismis there any command within "terminal" that copies whats on the prompt onto the "clipboard" ?12:17
Lintmun you need to create it and made active one, so that windows installer could reuse it12:17

phixLint: not nesseccary unless you are using encryption or LVM12:18
CasmoNLLint, you can get rid of the 100MB partition at install :P12:18
SquarismDr_willis, required a mouse !! =(12:18
omidoActionParsnip:  Cause its a very good product and a true commercial success. you cant even imagine how much profit MS wons out of Win712:18

FatDudePlease revive Ubotto as soon as possible.12:20
SquarismDr_willis, where you run bash right =D12:20

Dr_willisSquarism:  under X  you run terminal-emulators to get a 'terminal'12:21
munright. so somehow gparted isn't letting me create an extended one. do i have to boot using the live cd to do it? it's a second drive on my machine.12:21

MetaphysicistIs it possible to write a custom udev rule to always force a mounting point from a certain drive (SAS, SATA, w/e) controller in a uniform way. i.e. the boot drive will always mount at /dev/sda, and then the second SAS port always mount on /dev/sdb, etc?12:31

krivcLint: i dont know, my windows machine is Cobra and lubuntu is Rocket12:32
ActionParsnipMetaphysicist: you don't mount at /dev/sda   /dev/sda is a block device in of itself12:32

Lintor 'splash'13:06
monohedronActionParsnip, nope they both still show as the same. let me run a find over the disk to see whether they exist somewhere else13:06
WaltherFatDude: will the CLI work without x? keyboard is part of x right?13:06
ActionParsnipWalther: if you remove all gui apps and x you will boot to a CLI based OS only13:07
Waltherbut x11 is not necessary for CLI for example for kb input?13:07
LintActionParsnip, he probably means that grub sets his system in graphics mode13:07

=== newbie is now known as Guest52176
ActionParsnipWalther: the cli os will still take keyboard input13:08
ActionParsnipLint: yeah I think thats the dealio :)13:08
LintWalther, it's a separate package for console input, and separate for X input13:08
ActionParsnipWalther: if you add the boot option: text    you will boot CLI only13:08
kbotnen_Walther, If you dont want X / graphics ubuntu is probably not the distro for you?13:09
WaltherActionParsnip: sure, but boot splash doesn't annoy me at all13:09
ActionParsnipWalther: if you want gnome removing you could run:  sudo apt-get --purge remove `dpkg -l | grep gnome`13:09
Waltherkbotnen_: I am familiar with ubuntu, its cli, its repositories, etc13:09
ActionParsnipWalther: should remove enough13:09
WaltherActionParsnip: ...or run apt-get remove gnome*13:09
LintWalther, you may need 'console-input' package to customize keyboard layouts without X13:10
ActionParsnipWalther: my command will cover that too, but also remove libgnome and so on13:10

ubernoobActionParsnip, nope, I downloaded it from their mirror and burned it to a disc without doing any checks. I don't think there's anything wrong with the image as such.13:14
djotaubernoob: that can be kinda normal13:14
ActionParsnipubernoob: then how did you know the ISO was complete and consistent?13:15
ubernoobMy hunch is that it's the packages that I've selected, that it's trying to download and is taking a long while doing so.13:15

Emerald_FiannaHi all, just wondering can anyone give me a quick hand. I installed the broadcom wireless driver the other day on my laptop and it was working fine, no problems and when I turned on the laptop today, nothing, no wireless and when I went and looked at the additional drivers it's no longer there?14:44
duellemun, found http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/linux-software-2/creating-windows-7-bootable-usb-from-linux-762229/ - seems to be exactly what you are looking for doesnt' it?14:44
Kenjiromeskarune: hmmmm it jumped from 9.10 to
meskarunemun: do you have legal windows install media? if so you can rip the disc or an iso file and use a program to put it on usb14:44

daschelI'm having an issue with my wacom drawing tablet.  Every now and then (every month and a half or so) after a software update my tablet stops working.  unfortunately I'm not sure which update is causing it (I suspect something with x.org), and I have to manually install the drivers.  that's not a huge problem, but this time after reinstalling the drivers my tablet isn't responding the same way.  For one, the resolution of my tablet compared to14:49
daschelmy monitor is now 1:1.   This is actually a good thing because I had tried accomplishing this in the past but had no luck.  The other changes in my pad are less identifiable.  The best way I can describe it is that simply the feel is wrong.  I know that's not helpful, but none of the settings appear changed, and I'm not sure what to search for elsewhere.  has anyone heard of a similar issue?14:49

monohedronjnwhiteh, mutre the alert volume15:08
jnwhitehits not the alert15:09
jnwhitehthats the problem15:09
MubozMY question is, since the live usb looks for the partition label of "casper-rw" for a persistent space, does it look for this partition label on all drives?15:09
share_ikonia: yep now mouse doesnt work15:09
monohedronjnwhiteh, have yout ried to mute it ?15:09
monohedrontried to15:09
theadminMuboz: Partition labels are accessed via /dev/disk/by-label -- if more than one partition with the same label exists, the respective label will most likely fail to even get created, so yes, it won't work if multiple partitions have that label.15:10
jnwhitehnow I can't get into system settings again15:10
jnwhitehmonohedron: I haven't, because I still want the system-wide alert15:10
jnwhitehwhich is configured at a reasonable volume with a reasonable sound effect15:11
monohedronjnwhiteh, and if so what applications are listed in the sound settings15:11
jnwhitehjust Spotify15:11
theadminjnwhiteh: Try using pavucontrol to adjust volumes per-app, I think it does system volume too15:11
auronandacetheadmin: isn't that one of the reasons for using uuids instead?15:11
jnwhitehmonohedron: muting the alert volume seems to do it, but then I don't have system alerts, which is bad.15:12

jnwhitehtheadmin: pavucontrol only shows spotify and a single 'system sounds' options, it doesn't break up the system volume into 'normal' and 'eaat splitting beep' =/15:14

MubozSee, What I am trying to figure out is, If i put the liveusb on this 1gb drive, and if I make a partition labeled "casper-rw" on a different 1gb drive. Will the live usb find the persistent space partition on said separate usb drive?15:14
monohedronjnwhiteh, what app is beeping ?15:15

jnwhitehMy thesis must take priority15:18
meskarunecrankharder: sudo apt-get install libperl-dev15:18
crankharderiv'e done that very recently, but i'll try again15:18
