terminhellfrom terminal, cd into your index.php then lynx (or w3m) index.php00:00
xibalbaone moment and i'll check00:01
NaddIn "additional-drivers" I can choose between "version-current" and "post-release-updates". Which one is right?00:01
mun_how come alt-f2 doesn't work in Gnome 3 in 11.10?00:02
eightyeightwhere is support for 12.04? i need to know if the kernel has been frozen00:02
djathorisNadd - how close to the cutting edge do you dare to go?00:02
icerooteightyeight: #ubuntu+100:02
eightyeighticeroot: thx00:02
Nadddjathoris: I just want it to work right. Right now, system information says "driver: unknown"00:02
xibalbahere is the output, http://paste.ubuntu.com/843752/00:03
xibalbaif i Lynx indx.php it asked me if i want to download or cancle00:03
djathorisNadd - current is usually safer00:03
mun_is there a way to set alt f2 in Gnome 3 to Run?00:03
xibalbaterminhell : i've also tried a2endmod php5, reinstalling lamp-server, restarting apache2, etc...00:04
xibalbai was able to get it working on a fresh install of ubuntu on another vm guest, but not this sandbox i've already had in place00:04

kevCarbtest00:05
xibalbaany thoughts?00:05
xibalbanormally it's not this complicated :)00:05
djathorisNadd - it counts. You basically have a choice between the generic vesa driver or using the particular driver for your card00:06

startehey I'm trying to hook up my macbook with ubuntu to my tv screen. i know how using Mac OS but I'm stumped on how using ubuntu. Any help?00:14
djathoriswagnor - if you're getting artifacts in vesa mode, there might be something wrong in your system bios settings00:14
Muellibooh-: that's probably unity what you mean ;-) And well, you can kinda switch to real GNOME if you ilke.00:14

booh-Muelli, I just want a smooth upgrade... because I need some app new versions now...  But I fear "this" dist-upgrade... about losing all my gnome config and actual look and feel00:16

benassi_starte I did install but I get error again Fatal error: Uncaught exception 'Exception' with message 'Facebook needs the CURL PHP extension.00:17
wagnor_djathoris: I'm pretty sure its graphic card damage - I get same type of artifacts just after the reset and same artifacts when windows is loading. I was able to repair the card for about 1.5months using kitchen oven without any changes in bios/drivers.00:17
munthanks00:17
djathoriswagnor_ - you cooked your video card in an oven?00:17
wagnor_djathoris: yes00:17
cfhowlettbooh-   xubuntu kubuntu lubuntu offer alternatives.  You can sample them harmlessly in your present installation via virtualbox00:17

mustafaerhannactually i prefer wubi on windows better than virtual machines.00:18
catcherIs it pretty easy to set up?00:18
cfhowlettdjathoris   just looked at irc thread and see "cooked your video card"...what the fandango00:18
djathoriswagnor_ - if it wasn't broken before, it probably is now00:18
startebenassi_: facebook? why's facebook part of your error message?00:19
zykotick9cfhowlett: you know, HDs go in the freezer and VideoCards in the oven - doesn't everyone know that?  </sarcasm>00:19
wagnor_djathoris: no, cooking did help, it was okay for about 1.5months, now I get the same artifacts as before cooking.00:19
djathoriscfhowlett - that can't be good for it00:19
cfhowlettzykotick9   darn.  I better go move the veggies and make room00:19
kostaszi have xubuntu 11.10 with compiz and after changing appearance styles not all of the windows undergo the change. Any idea?00:20
wagnor_and cooking while doesn't sound serious is just resoldering, it works quite often if you don't overcook it00:20
kostaszFor example: Ubuntu Software Center, gcalctool, synaptic..00:20
djathoriswagnor_ - if the problem came back, maybe it was something else like the bus frequency or a conflict with another device?00:21

Make sure the message bus Daemon is running! Message: Failed to connnect to socket /var/run/dbus/system_bus_so" anybody wanna help a newb?00:23
wagnor_djathoris: From what I've googled (and afair) it's just damaged memory banks - people reported same kind of artifacts - pink or green vertical stripes with gaps and random crashes00:23
kostaszany idea about compiz?00:23

whoeveror do i need to set it and do i need to do anything to enable it00:31
induzits getting big00:31
_Marcusinduz: Does Thunderbird need that folder to run?00:31
djathorismaestro - the question is, is your ubuntu parition so corrupted that the files will never be recoverable? Not being able to boot it is a bad sign.00:32
_Marcusinduz: Since it's getting big, I'm guessing it's the folder that holds the emails. Why would you delete it if it needs it?00:32
maestrodjathoris: i am able to access my partition where i installed my ubuntu via live cd00:32
djathorisso you can access the partition but not boot from it?00:33

djathorismaestro - how far does it get when you try to boot it?00:34
cfhowlettCanadian1296   victory!00:35

Canadian1296And thank you _Marcus, I lost the link :)00:36
djathorismaestro - that would tend to imply that reinstalling grub might work00:36
cfhowlett_Marcus   glad you're back up!00:36
induz_Marcus, true...I dont have much space on my Hdrive...but if I delet the folder is it going to be deleted from Gmail server too00:36
maestrodjathoris: How do i reinstall it?00:36
djathorismaestro - there should be an option on the live cd for that00:36
cfhowlettmaestro   agree that reinstall grub should work - tho I still don't understand how it scrambled.00:36

cfhowlettgoathouse774   checksum!01:20
cfhowlett!md5sum|goathouse77401:20
ubottugoathouse774: To verify your Ubuntu ISO image (or other files for which an MD5 checksum is provided), see http://help.ubuntu.com/community/HowToMD5SUM or http://www.linuxquestions.org/linux/answers/LQ_ISO/Checking_the_md5sum_in_Windows01:20
tensorpuddingchecksumming is a good idea01:20
tensorpuddingcompare with the md5 or sha-101:20
goathouse774Checksum?01:20
tensorpuddinga checksum is a function which takes a file and collapses it down to a brief string of characters, called a hash01:21
WhiteEyeim running backtrack, but its based on ubuntu so nuthing wrong in hanging out here in my favourtie room01:21
jswagneri thought there was a feature on the boot menu that allowed you to test the content of the disc01:21
tensorpuddingyou can compare the hash you get from the file with a hash on record to verify that the file is complete and unmodified01:22
WhiteEyejswagner: I know there is, I got it on my ubuntu server01:22
Canadian1296jswagner: There should be, but I'd still recommend a hash check01:22
tensorpuddingbecause small changes in the original file will make large changes in the hash01:22
tensorpuddingbesides verifying disk images it's also good for making sure that the image you have is not tampered with by an untrusted third party01:23
bobweaverWhiteEye,  this room is for ubuntu question you are more then welcome to hang out look at some question. but if you would like to  talk about cracking and div's of ubuntu best in the #off-topic channel01:23

mustafaerhann777 is ok then.02:43
mustafaerhann:D02:43

cfhowlettrksii  see software center toshutils02:45
_MarcusWith all the people putting Ubuntu on the Toshiba Satellites, I'm suprised it doesn't work perfectly with them already.02:45
rksiiI always used to use toshiba laptops with linux and this is the first real problem I have had02:46
rksiiI guess it is a newer model02:46
FuZi0Nso for example "chmod 777 /home/user/Downloads" ?02:46
meskarunerksil: if you use any proprietary graphics drivers, try unloading them and see if you can suspend02:46
mustafaerhannyes FuZi0N02:47
dejahthorisFuZi0N - yes, that will leave your ftp directory wide open02:47
rksiicfhowlett: there is nothing matching toshutils in the software center. I searched for just tosh and I already have toshset installed (guess it did that for me) and there are a few other things that don't seem like they have anything to do with suspend or power02:48

goathouse774I'm probably just going to skip checking the disc because it's simply too complicated, or the linked instructions are ambiguous.03:13

fizyplanktonif the SATA cable fell (melted) off of a harddrive while it was running, could that cause the "read error rate" to be 14,605, the "Seek error rate" to be 59,303,348, and the "hardware ECC recovered" to be 14,605, yet the overall status say "disk is healthy"03:16

fizyplanktonhatop: OerHeks the drive seems to be fine. the meltdown occured several months ago. my airconditioner broke, and my room is the hottest room in the house, and it was in the middle of the summer (i live in georgia. HOT). just that much was enough to melt it off. i still have the carnage on my desk. oddly enough, even 59 millioin errors wont cause the report to say an error, yet my other disk has 2 bad sectors and it return03:20

fizyplanktonhatop: i replaced the sata cable 6 months ago. im just wondering why i have millions of errors. a part of me thinks that when it melted off, it could have shorted out its statistics. for instance, it says its powered up time is 3 yrs. thats not impossible, as it is a relatively old drive, but i wouldnt be surprised if thats inaccurate03:27

Mike9863'm currently using an emerald theme and I installed AMD proprietary graphics drivers. Now when I hover over window buttons (minimize, maximize, and close) they don't highlight. This is a problem because with my theme the buttons do not show unless I over over them. Is this a cause of the new drivers, and if so is there any way to fix this?03:51
Jordan_UMike9863: Unfortunately emerald hasn't been maintained or supported by anyone for years.03:52
newhoaboyhimas, if you don't like Xubuntu or Lubuntu, you could try Linux Mint 12. As part of the default install, it includes MATE desktop, just a fork of Gnome 2. So it may be the best of both worlds... updated distro based on Ubuntu, but "classic" Gnome 2 style desktop.03:53
Jordan_Ujiero: If it's in main, it's supported by canonical and the community. If it's in universe then it's only supported by the community.03:54

johnson17Hi everyone, I'm on 11.10, installed only a few packages for web dev (lamp-server, etc.). Problem is that recently, nautilus can't browse network or trash anymore. I've googled and found this bug has been reported, but can't find any clear resolution steps. Any clues as to what I should do?04:36
=== cindy_ is now known as chipmonk
somsipagentgasmask: not sure about xmonad, but check to see what the 'open terminal'  keystroke is and try that. It's WIN-enter in my case, not ALT-enter04:36
ndkellyjohnson17 I'd say if you're using it for a server, to choose a stable, certified release.04:37
tenXcapcook: unusable?04:37
fabianvampiroI use open office but when I print to a cybercafe margins move04:37
capcookyes in my ubuntu 11.10 freeze many times04:37
goathouse774Well, I booted from the disc into xubuntu and it works.  I touch sluggish, but not bad.  Internet works and basic functions.  What should I do now?04:37
cfhowlettSimonTam   did you get straightened out?04:37
cfhowlettgoathouse774   install!04:38
Kismacjohnson17: we use natty on some 123 servers….04:38
Kismactho we run nginx on them only :)04:39
chipmonkhow do i add a second harddrive to ubuntu04:39
cfhowlettfabianvampiro   personally I'd go with the Libre Office packages.  transfer between MS office is still not exact, but you save/export in office formats.  All else fails, export as PDF to lock in your formatting.04:39
johnson17ndkelly: this is just a dev machine, so there isn't anything critical if it all melts down - I'm just surprised that nautilus suddenly stopped working04:39
cfhowlettgoathouse774   have you installed xubuntu or did you live boot?04:39
agentgasmasksomsip: Hmm... no joy. No problem though, I'm messing with wmii now... :)04:39
goathouse774Live boot04:40

fabianvampirothx all people je je04:40
ndkellyjohnson17 ah, well did you run sudo apt-get update after installation?04:40
cfhowlettgoathouse774   live boot is always slower - everything you see is loaded in ram04:40
goathouse774Will installing wipe the computer?04:40
cfhowlettgoathouse774   yes but...04:41
tenXgoathouse774: not really04:41
ndkellygoathouse774 no, you can choose which partitions you want to format or install to.04:41
tenXgoathouse774: toe make sure you should "null" the device04:41
cfhowlettgoathouse774   depends how you set it up.  For instance if you have a separate /home you can choose to skip formatting that partition.04:41
cfhowlettgoathouse774   is this a dual boot machine or buntu only?04:42
goathouse774"null"?  /home?04:42
johnson17ndkelly : yep, today I got a couple of other updates showing up though - I'm updating right now, since they look like they're major.04:42
goathouse774I don't know, it has windows on it currently.04:42
cfhowlettgoathouse774   and I imagine you plan to keep windows?04:42
goathouse774Should I?  Would it impede anything on the linux side?04:43
ndkellyjohnson17 let us know how that goes and i'll offer what advice i can04:43
ndkellyDoes anybody have a Two Finger Scroll fix for Synaptics Trackpads for 10.04 per chance?04:43
snowrichardi got a kernel update today04:44
cfhowlettgoathouse774   it wouldn't hurt your buntu.  Perhaps you may have a need for windows though - it's actually not that hard to "dual-boot" both.04:44
tenXgoathouse774: whatever you put on it it depends on your intention, how efficiently you like to erase04:44
johnson17ndkelly: Thanks, I'll take another look at launchpad to see the bug reports.04:44

cfhowlett!status04:45
goathouse774If the buntu stuff is siloed then why wouldn't I keep windows around?  Is dual booting for quickly switching back and forth?04:46
cfhowlettgoathouse774   dual booting means completely rebooting - not hot/fast switching.  Why keep windows?  Up to you.04:47
goathouse774When booted to buntu windows has no effect right?04:48
cfhowlettgoathouse774   nor vice versa04:48
Toph2I'm running ubuntu 11.10 and my computer often slows to a crawl, especially when I have chrome and Thunderbird running. Htop indicates that Compiz is using almost 20% of my CPU capacity. Is this normal?04:48
goathouse774As I see it, the only thing you lose by keeping windows is hard drive space.04:48
goathouse774On a basic level, is that so?04:49
nathan28goathouse774: when you keep windows you can't control the partitioning scheme on the disk as well04:49
nathan28it makes it harder to keep something like /home intact if you reinstall04:49
cfhowlettgoathouse774   that's one arguement.  I do buntu 90% of the time 9% windows and 1% OSX.04:49
nathan28likewise you have to deal w/ bootloader issues04:50
nathan28which are easy enough but still another consideration04:50
goathouse774Bootloader issues?04:50
nathan28making sure GRUB and windows play nice04:50
goathouse774I thought they are siloed04:50
cfhowlettgoathouse774   no bootloader issues if you install virtualbox into windows and then install buntu into that.04:51
ndkellyI've kept GRUB on sda3 (my ubuntu partition)04:51
ndkellyAs i have to boot through Chameleon first, then GRUB04:51
cfhowlettgoathouse774   when running they are siloed.  On boot, the machine resources POST and the like...04:51
nathan28ndkelly: that's what i mean04:51
cfhowlettndkelly   but you're multi-booting as well04:51
goathouse774Post?04:52
nathan28goathouse774: the reason to keep windows is 1. to play games 2. you need a windows-only app for work/school04:52
goathouse774But they mess with each other on boot?04:52
ndkellynathan28 i assume you mean for document formats? Or is the method of your work also dependant on Windows software04:52
nathan28goathouse774: not likley to04:52
nathan28ndkelly: yes for document formats04:53
nathan28most of the world can't get off the MS office04:53
goathouse774But they...  dictate partitioning rules?04:53
cfhowlettgoathouse774  the most recently installed OS writes the MasterBootRecord.  Scrambled MBR = No boot.04:53
nathan28goathouse774: no04:53
ndkellyYou can always cross format. Most open source office programs allow you to save a file so it can be opened universally04:53
cfhowlettgoathouse774   YOU set the partitions04:53
nathan28goathouse774: windows can't read ext partitions04:54
goathouse774How would the mbr get scrambled?04:54
ndkellyWindows is stubborn and only likes NTFS. Or FAT32 depending on which release you're running.04:54
nathan28goathouse774: the last OS installed is going to want to overwrite the MBR04:54
nathan28IIRC in ubuntu you have to disable the overwrite from the installer04:55
ndkellyThere's a fairly decent guide that allows you to get Windows and GRUB to play nice04:55
goathouse774So you can't switch back and forth?04:55
nathan28ndkelly: true04:55
nathan28goathouse774: yes04:55
nathan28you reboot04:55
cfhowlettgoathouse774   gotta go quite soon but my suggestion to you is this: install virtual box on windows, install xubuntu into virtualbox.  Learn more.  THEN install a dual boot when you've a better idea of what you're doing.  *Dear Old Dad: "It's free advice son, and worth every penny!"04:55
nathan28you just need to configure your bootloader (GRUB) right04:55
ndkellyOr, might i suggest looking into Virtual Machines?04:55
ndkellycfhowlett beat me to it.04:56
nathan28goathouse774: the best way to learn is to do it04:56
nathan28goathouse774: use clonezilla to create a backup of your disk04:56
nathan28then find a guide to dual-booting04:56
nathan28then install whatver linux distro you want04:56
nathan28you will understand more04:56
nathan28or04:56
nathan28just put it in a VM w/ virtual box04:57
ndkellyI've started with Ubuntu, and already learned quite a few things in the past 2 days.04:57
nathan28goathouse774: if you use a VM you may have to turn on virtualization support in your BIOS04:57
goathouse774Is it slower in a virtual box?04:57
nathan28goathouse774: probably but on a modern system it's much better than it used to be04:57
ndkellyOne of which being, I can EITHER have a slow-ish release and a perfect trackpad. Or a less than satisfactory trackpad and a solid release for my netbook.04:57

ndkellynathan28 which package in Synaptic should i be looking at?05:13
johnson17ndkelly: Only bug report for my issue seems to be for the 11.10 amd64 beta: http://tinyurl.com/6m4lbyr. I don't think this is a serious issue. Probably an update that fixes it.05:14

h00kjohnson17: 11.10 isn't in beta05:15
h00kjohnson17: are you talking about 12.04 alpha?05:15
whumphreyHello05:16
nathan28ndkelly: see https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Touchpad_Synaptics for two-finger config05:16
whumphreyI really could use some help05:16
nathan28also there are probably like ten front-ends that will turn it on for you automagically05:16
johnson17h00k: Check the link. It's an old bug report.05:17
nathan28whumphrey: what's the issue?05:17
johnson17ndkelly: Ok updates done - let me reboot and recheck. Be back in a few.05:17
ndkellynathan28 even though this is on Archwiki, will the fix apply to Ubuntu 10.04?05:18
whumphreynathan28, I have a usb wireless adapter. I have it working via ndiswrapper meaning it sees the network but I can only connect to it if I disable encryption05:18
nathan28ndkelly: it should05:19
nathan28you are still using X for your GUI05:19
nathan28whumphrey: i'm not familair w/ usb wireless05:20
ndkellyDefine X?05:20
nathan28whumphrey: what encryption, and is your network SSID not boradcasting05:20
nathan28ndkelly: X11, the window server05:20
nathan28whatver GNOME/KDE/unity/openbox run on top of05:20
ndkellyRight. Thanks.05:20
ndkellyI'll give this a shot.05:21
ndkellyI tried a previous 'fix' to run a startup script, but for some reason the script i created wouldn't show up in nautilus05:21
whumphreynathan28, It's broadcasting and I can see it but when prompted for the password, it won't connect. If I log into the router and disable encryption I can connect05:21

syddrafI have configured two of my 1TB drives in a RAID 1 setup. I've checked the configuration in the controller several times, and it appears to be correct, but Ubuntu is still recognizing the two drives as separate entities. Do I need to do something in Ubuntu to set this up properly?05:25
ndkellyjohnson17 simply through updating?05:25
ndkellynathan28 I appear to not have this file /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-synaptics.conf05:26

johnson17ndkelly: Yep.05:26
ndkellyjohnson17 good stuff. glad it's sorted05:26

habanero_strange,  I'm running apt-get upgrade, and the result is "The following packages have been kept back" ... flash...06:22
cypher-neohabanero_, I only use apt-get dist-upgrade if apt-get upgrade doesn't install all the upgrades.06:22
cypher-neohabanero_, Packages will held back if the dependancies they require don't exist on the system. That's when you use dist-upgrade... to upgrade a package and it's local dependancies.06:23

ChipCherouMy X is failing at loading the NVIDIA driver....which is obvious since I have an ATI video card.  How do I fix this since xorg has been made depreciated?06:37
shellcode84yea i have a backup06:37
Ben64ChipCherou: which nvidia driver is it attempting to load06:37
shellcode84can i access it via ctrl-alt f106:37
shellcode84?06:37
ChipCherouBen64: fglrx06:38
Ben64shellcode84: yes, thats a full terminal you have access to there06:38
Ben64ChipCherou: fglrx isn't nvidia06:38
overcluckershellcode84: yup06:38
shellcode84alright how can i  access it06:38
shellcode84sudo /etc/x11/xorg.conf06:38
ChipCherouBen64: 2 lines down it says Failed to initialize GLX extension (Compatible NVIDIA X driver not found).06:39
ChipCherouBen64: this aside, how do I tell it to use 'radeon'06:39
Ben64ChipCherou: 2 lines of what? down from what?06:39
ChipCherouBen64: the startx output06:40
overcluckershellcode84: sudo cp /etc/X11/xorg.confg /etc/X11/xorg.conf.broken06:40
Ben64ChipCherou: did you have an nvidia card previously?06:40
shellcode84alright06:40
shellcode84imma try thatt06:40
ChipCherouBen64: yes06:40
overcluckershellcode84: you should probably fix my typo though...06:40
whumphreynathan28, I'm back06:41
overcluckershellcode84: that's to back up your broken xorg.conf06:41
Ben64ChipCherou: then you need to remove the nvidia drivers via apt-get06:41
ChipCherouBen64: isn't there a way for me to force x to load radeon drivers instead (this linux jumps between ati and nvidia)06:41
whumphreynathan28, now the wireless networks don't appear06:42
Ben64ChipCherou: you can create an xorg.conf06:42
ChipCherouBen64: in /etc/X11?06:42
Ben64ChipCherou: yep.06:42
ChipCherouBen64: Thank you, I thought it wouldn't work cause its depreciated.  Ill give it a shot06:43
nathan28whumphrey: your issue is w/ iw_set_auth and iw_set_freq... maybe hard-code it? it's past my bedtime so try to hit up google... good luck06:43
overcluckershellcode84: then sudo cp /path/to/xorg.conf.backup /etc/X11/xorg.conf change the first part to the the actual location of your backup06:43
Ben64ChipCherou: yeah, will still work, its just not needed anymore06:43
kroonrsWhy does an open instance of Libre-Office not show up as an option when I alt-tab? (Unity on 11.10)?06:43
whumphreythanks06:43

Ben64ChipCherou: it usually does, but if you have both drivers on i guess it can be confused06:45
kroonrscfhowlett: what is the impact of not having global menus?06:45
cfhowlettkroonrs   I don't use 11.10 but as I understand it, you can't use the shortcut method you described as broken06:46
kroonrscfhowlett: well, that's pretty crappy :( just because of menu style, you can't access an application you've launched, and need to terminate it with a kill signal if you switch from it06:47

jjprieto.07:27
Y_Ichirohm, it never ceases to amaze me how the programs that i never use like Libreoffice somehow makes it onto the desktop but programs like Terminal which there are no shortcuts for in Ubuntu07:27
bkerensamikeliss: How do you know you are uninstalling it? What command did you issue?07:27
mikelissBen64: The boot partition was full of old ones...but I may have mis-calculated which I can remove. Removing it with apt-get.07:27
overcluckermikeliss: what do you plan to do if the new kernel doesn't work correctly?07:27
mikelissoverclucker: liveCD, I suppose...not a great option.07:28
Ben64mikeliss: you didn't install a new one before?07:28
mikelissBen64: Well, it's in /boot, so I suppose it's installed.07:28
overcluckermikeliss: it'd a good idea to keep at least one 'known' working kernel to fall back on.07:28
mikelissCan't say I pay a ton of attention since I typically just let Apt/update manager do their things.07:28
Ben64mikeliss: i wouldn't count on that, check using dpkg07:28
urfr332g0Y_Ichiro, shortcuts like ctrl-alt-t07:29

mikelissBen64: Meaning it's installed, yes?07:29
Ben64mikeliss: should be good then, just run update-grub before you reboot07:29
mikelissBen64: that should have been run automatically already, right?07:30
mikelissBen64: Is there a way to tell if the system is awaiting a reboot from me?07:30
Ben64mikeliss: it can't hurt to do it again07:30
Ben64mikeliss: do you have a desktop07:30
trond-Y_Ichiro, most likely because Ubuntu doesn't want the perception of Linux = command line / shell to continue. Most people just want their system to work and if it doesn't, make it work without using the shell and a bunch of commands that they don't understand anyway.07:30
mikelissBen64: Naw, it's a server, and I a poor admin, but I notice now that the MOTD wants a reboot.07:30

Ben64blackslik_: go to that site overclucker said, and use that to generate a new one08:02
mallockroonrs, oh i see.. well then perhaps you need to look into unity's own preferences.. probably some option to change that F10 function08:03

overcluckerblackslik_: pick your country, release (oneiric) and check 'Main', 'Security', and 'Updates' at minimum. you can check more if you want08:03

knoppiesI am having problems with direct rendering (using ATI HD5470 on ubuntu10.10), so I downloaded the new driver from the amd website and installed it, but "glxinfo | grep direct" still states "LIBGL_ALWAYS_INDIRECT set" which I googled and a forum post suggested "unset LIBGL_ALWAYS_INDIRECT" which works for my current terminal only, and does not work for wine. Can you help me to permenantly remove the environment variable "unset LIBGL_AL08:31
knoppiesWAYS_INDIRECT" for all terminal sessions (including programs run with wine). I have plenty more info, but I dont want to flood the channel.08:31

goathouse774is it safe to install apps from the web vs. the software center?08:35
goathouse774for instance, I have the chrome installer downloaded, but should I run it or use Chromium?08:36
knoppiesgoathouse774, safe as in "Will it kill my computer because of some bug" or safe as in "Will there be a virus somehow embedded/associated with the software"08:36
knoppiesgoathouse774, I use Chromium Im not sure what chrome offers that chromium doesnt. Maybe flash?? I have installed both on the same machine before, and used both Simultaneously, its up to you.08:37
goathouse774safe as in "I've sort of come to understand that the libraries in linux distros are arranged in such a way as to make apps sometimes not play nice"08:37
knoppiesGuest70179, synaptic is the GUI in GNOME. Open up a terminal and type "sudo apt-get update" (you might have to close Synaptic first)08:37
goathouse774or is that more a developer thing than a user thing?08:38
overcluckergoathouse774: if you get the package from a trustworthy source, then you should be fine08:38
knoppiesgoathouse774, I have noticed similar things, but more so when I am installing outdated software which wants outdated/obsolete libraries.08:38
goathouse774so, for example, I can safely go find the latest Firefox for linux and install it safely without concern?08:39
knoppiesgoathouse774, Probably, I dont use firefox so much anymore.08:39
goathouse774what do you use?08:39
tensorpuddinglinux has some things which make such behaviors difficult08:39

plusEVy0 I had a little scuare on my taskbar that i could choose what virtual monitor to go to. I managed to unpin that icon and now I cant find it. How do I put that back there? using pinguy os 11.04.108:40
goathouse774so how would one know if a program has or could soon have outdated libraries?  that sounds very high-maintenaince.08:40
tensorpuddingwhat do you mean "has outdated libraries"08:40
plusEVsquare even.08:40
=== max is now known as Visionaire
tensorpuddingis pinguy a supported derivative08:41
metaspikegoathouse774, the program will complain in stdin (terminal) or wont work at all if the libraries are outdated, assuming the program maintainer knows what they're doing.08:41
tensorpuddinggoathouse774, there's a tool called ldd, on the terminal, which searches the library path and will tell you what file corresponds to every dynamic library that the app is linked to08:41
goathouse774doesn't linux have a more regulated mass-update scheme that serves as one of it's main distinctions from windows?08:42
tensorpuddinggoathouse774, if there's a hole where no file is assigned, the program will not start08:42
tensorpuddinggoathouse774, each distribution updates its software at a different rate, to different versions08:42
tensorpuddinggoathouse774, it's a madhouse08:42
knoppiesmetaspike, when I said "outdated libraries" I meant that the software depends on such libraries. goathouse774 anything from new versions of the libraries to a release date that is set a few years ago. Another big clue is if you can no longer get the libraries from ubuntu's default repositories.08:42
=== alakoo_ is now known as alakoo
tensorpuddinggoathouse774, instead of getting the latest version from mozilla it's much simpler to use the package included in your distribution08:43
=== `mOOse` is now known as m00se
goathouse774well that brings me back to chrome.  it's not included in my distribution so am I tempting fate here by branching out of my distribution and installing it?08:44

zenonMorning, I'm on ubuntu 11.10, installed w3af & saved over one of the defult scans properties & details, I uninstalled then reinstalled to fix, after shutdown its reverted back, how would I restore the app?08:44
raatiniemianybody know of a good touchscreen calibration tool? :)08:44
knoppiesgoathouse774, yes, ubuntu based derivatives have a 'mass-update' scheme, but if a certain library or piece of software was abandoned 6 years ago it can be a pain to get it to work on the latest distribution. Not all linux uses a 'mass-update' schedule.08:44
knoppiesgoathouse774, with chrome not really, but I think that has something to do with the fact that google use some sort of ubuntu derivative inhouse (last I heard)08:45
goathouse774so it's more of a "oh this particular software is too old and wont work" than a "oh this particular software is too old and I just fried my computer by installing it"?08:45

metaspikestanman246, that would copy your user profile, documents and its settings. assuming nothing else has changed, this is fine.08:47
knoppiesstanman246, yes, provided that you havn't saved anything outside of your HOME folder.08:47

knoppiesgoathouse774, unless your data is in an NTFS partition, I am not sure degraging is relevant. You can try install lxde on your current system, rather than installing lubuntu from scratch.08:57
knoppiesdefragging, sorry.08:58
metaspikekripz, you cant. but you can reconfigure those things with the standard tools, sudo dpkg-reconfigure locales, sudo adduser etc.08:58
nicknickmetaspike: It's all good! I just thought there would probably be someone in here who had had the same issue and already figured it out08:58
metaspikenicknick, maybe if you opened a terminal, and made it executable. sudo chmod +x ./whatever - then it'll stop buggin you08:59
goathouse774I'll just give it some more time.09:00
nicknickmetaspike I had to give it +x in order for it to be executable in the first place. I would think that there would be some way to repress that. probably through a command? I would search it on the net, but I can't think of a concise way to word a search for that09:01

aceperryu890: I agree, ubuntu is easy, I've been told Mint is even easier, especially well suited for beginners, I don't use Mint though09:29
doda-if it is so then you have chromium installed09:30
goathouse774no it's "google chrome" in internet apps menu09:30
The_Last_Templarhey i have Ubuntu 9.10 and i can't install it on my computer??09:30
overcluckergoathouse774: at least try chromium first. if you don't like it, you can switch.09:30
aceperrygoat: best source for chrome browser is DIRECTLY from google09:30
Ben64aceperry: that isn't true09:30
aceperryben: what isn't true?09:30
Ben64shouldn't download apps from websites09:30
pv73llutz_: htop shows only 4 processors.09:31
u890ace: another argument for Ubuntu is that it has more tutorials in the internet than any other linux distrbutions09:31
doda-aceperry: +109:31
doda-Ben64: why not ?09:31
pv73llutz_: if ht was enabled, I think it should show 8 (4x2).09:31
aceperryben, I think chrome from google is the way to go09:31
Ben64because ubuntu works much better with apt than manually installing things09:31
pv73llutz_: it shows 8 cpus in my win install :(09:32
aceperryben: google's chrome browser is distributed as a deb file09:32
doda-chrome has its own repo09:32
Ben64right, but doesn't auto update and can conflict with things in the software center09:32
doda-that is constantly updated09:32
doda-lol09:32
Ben64i pasted the link to google's ppa09:32
Ben64which is the best way to get it09:32
doda-i just upgraded it today09:32
aceperryben: it doesn't conflict with anything09:32
Ben64aceperry: it can09:33
doda-http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/deb/09:33
doda-this is the repo09:33
aceperryben: what does it conflict with?  I've never had any probs09:33
Ben64aceperry: can != is09:33
pv73llutz_: anyway, thanks for your help.09:34
aceperryben: what?09:34
Ben64aceperry: "can conflict" is not the same as "does conflict"09:34
aceperryben: that applies to all deb files, including ones from ubuntu09:34
aceperryso what's up with ubuntu repos?  At first it was failing, now it's slow as hell09:35
satyanashaceperry, they are localised to the country.09:36
goathouse774I can't seem to uninstall chrome even if I wanted to09:36
satyanashaceperry, I think.09:36
goathouse774The software center is stuck loading after I opened the chrome installer09:36
aceperrysatyanash: there are repos in different countries, I only tried two, and they were slow09:37
Ben64goathouse774: you can't have two things accessing package stuff at the same time09:37
goathouse774chrome is closed...09:37
heizmannHi, all. I'm searching to install manually a lucid lynx, bypassing chroot (under virtualbox). My reason is to understand "how it works" exactly. More specifically, I wish know how commands are invoked during a classical install, bypassing an install CD (like: an alternate ubuntu CD). Under other distros, we can find lots of tutorials about this topic, but I cannot find a clear tutorial on the web which explains clearly how to do. :)09:37
heizmannthanks for advance for some helps or links ^^'09:37
heizmannBy starting point: a custom liveCD (launch from VertualBox :) )09:38
Ben64goathouse774: i mean software center and the chrome installer09:39
goathouse774when I open the installer the software center takes over automatically09:39
goathouse774anyway, I closed it and tried again and it worked09:40
goathouse774however, I only have the option to "reinstall".09:40
Ben64oh..09:40
aceperrygoat: reinstall means that it's already installed09:40
aceperrygoat: what are you trying to do?09:41
goathouse774I'm trying to uninstall it to be safe09:41
Ben64goathouse774: try to remove it from command line09:41
aceperrygoat: then uninstall it, what's the prob?09:41
goathouse774I don't know command line at all yet09:41
goathouse774how do you uninstall programs in xubuntu09:41
aceperrygoat: do you know how to uninstall with synaptic?09:41
goathouse774It's a little overwhelming09:42
Ben64goathouse774: open a terminal, and type "dpkg --get-selections | grep -i chrome"09:42
aceperrygoat: what package manager are you using?  Synaptic?09:42
goathouse774yes09:42
aceperrygoat: click on the package to highlight it, right click on the green box, and select Mark for removal, or mark for complete removal09:44
goathouse774is the package one thing or several entries?09:44
Ben64one09:44
aceperrygoat: what package are you talking about, usually it's one line per package09:45
goathouse774there are like a thousand packages in there09:45
aceperrygoat: yea, there's lots of packages.  If you want to remove one package, highlight one package and select remove (that one package). Does that make sense?09:46
linociscocan I get my username@ubuntu.com email account using ubuntu server version?09:46
tensorpuddinguninstalling is easy for single packages09:46
aBoundHmm, I'm updating my Ubuntu machine and flash seems to either continuously download itself or it's going through an endless loop.09:47
goathouse774well yeah, I found it now, but in my defense when I searched for "chrome" the results centered on something pretty far away on the list so I had to scroll up09:47
aceperrygoat: unless you have the official google repo as one of your sources, you won't find chrome in your list, only something like chromium09:48
goathouse774I downloaded it from google.com09:48
goathouse774and it showed up as chrome09:49
aceperrygoat: what did you download?  and what is the problem?09:49
Lintgoathouse774, see the package content to guess where the executable could be09:49
goathouse774I downloaded chrome like I always have in windows.  then I was informed that I shouldn't install programs from the web, so I want to delete it.09:49
goathouse774I found it.  It says chrome.09:50
goathouse774Should I mark it for removal or "complete" removal?09:50
Ben64complete09:50
aceperrygoat: if you didn't install it, then you just delete it.  If it is the official chrome browser from google, then it is ok to install09:50
goathouse774I did install it09:50
goathouse774I downloaded it, installed it, and now I want to uninstall it.09:51
aceperrygoat: complete removal will get rid of your bookmarks/history etc.  But the official google downloads are good.09:51
aceperrygoat: uninstall with synaptic then, just like I said earlier09:52
goathouse774yes I will, but in my defense when I searched for chrome earlier like you said the results centered very far from chrome, which is why I was hung up there for a minute.09:53
aceperrygoat:???09:53
goathouse774in synaptic, I did a search, because there are too many packages to scroll through...09:53
goathouse774and the search didn't really work right.  it's no big deal.09:54
goathouse774I found it now.09:54
aceperrygoat: ok, just fyi, my opinion is that the best source for google's chrome on ubuntu/debian is from google itself, always the latest or best stable packages09:54
Squarismwhere can one find09:55
goathouse774that's a problem for me, because I'm a noob and I'm getting diametrically opposed instructions on this point09:55
Ben64goathouse774: seriously, its best to add google's repository so chrome shows up in software center, you get updates and everything integrates all nice and pretty09:56
Squarismwhere can one find debian packages for old mysql versions fur current ubuntu  (11.10 64bit) versions?09:56
aceperrygoat: usually the official repos are best, and safest, but there are exceptions like google's chrome09:56
oratedHello! I'm getting error while update packages - http://imagebin.org/199194 . sources.list - http://paste.ubuntu.com/844148/. How can I fix it please?09:56
goathouse774alright guys, lol...09:57

normodhey, I'm doing a amd64 PXE install and I get an error about a corrupted Package file10:07
normodI googled it and touching it makes the installer not complain10:07
terminhellit likes to be touched10:07
normodmy question is, should I support a bug report?10:08
terminhellsupport away10:08
ikonianormod: what does touching do ?10:08
ikonianormod: how does it effect the file ?10:08
ikoniathat is the question, is it putting permisssions/execute etc on it10:08
ikoniatouching a file won't make it "non-corrupt"£10:09
normodno the installer bombs when it tries to ugzip Packages.gz wich is a zero length file10:09
ikonianormod: right, so touching that file won't change it's size10:09
ikonianormod: it won't fill it with the correct data10:10
normodyeah I know the file is fine but it shouldn't be there10:10
ikonianormod: what do you mean it shouldn't be there ?10:11
normodthe netinstall has to restricted packages for amd6410:11
normodbut there is a package file there anyway and it breaks the installer10:11
ikonianormod: sorry, could you explain that again please, I'm not following10:11
normodyes I'm not very good at this explining thing...10:12
normodI'll start over, the installer stops an complains that /restricted/binary-amd64/Packages.gz is corrupt10:13
ikonianormod: ok - first things first, where did you get this CD ?10:13
normodit's not, it unzips fine but is a zero lenght file and that's not something the installer likes10:13

RawProduceI just bought an Nvidia G210 and a couple of 1920x1080 monitors - nvidia-settings correctly detects one of the screens (the one plugged into VGA) but only detects resolutions of 640x480&320x240 for the one plugged into DVI10:14
ikonianormod: which CD are you using, the netboot ?10:14
RawProducewhat's the deal?10:14
ikoniaRawProduce: bad edid info from sloppy monitors ?10:15
normodikonia: the amd64 netboot for oneiric10:15
ikonianormod: ok10:15
RawProduceikonia: I tried getting past that by manually specifying the resolution in xorg.conf10:15
RawProducethink it's worth going for the OSS drivers instead?10:15
ikonianormod: so thats the mini.iso (just to confirm the file)10:15
ikoniaRawProduce: not really10:15
RawProducehm, what options do I have, in that case?10:16
normodikonia: no the tar.gz, sorry10:16
ikoniaRawProduce: configure it properly in the xorg.conf, try using xrand to set it, make sure you are using the propritary nvidia modules, and that they are being loaded10:16
ikonianormod: no problem, that's why I'm clarifying10:16
RawProduceikonia: nvidia drivers don't support xrandr :/10:17
ikoniaRawProduce: you can set a display mode with xrandr10:17
ikoniaRawProduce: you can set a display mode with xrand10:17
RawProduceno, you can't with nvidia drivers10:17
RawProducethey don't provide the RandR extension for xorg10:17

ikonianormod: ok - so I'm looking at that directory structure now, what file is zero length10:20
venky10yeah. I thought it was supposed to download .bundle, but it is .txt. Either way, I opened it through vi and it was a shell script for the top part of the file and then the bottom part was executable (vi prints junk)10:20

venky10ikonia: I'd probably do that next. Just wanted to know if anyone else had seen it10:35

ubottuThe core of Ubuntu is the Linux kernel: see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Kernel - You shouldn't have to compile your own, and if you need to troubleshoot issues, you can try a !Mainline kernel instead, but if you insist, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Kernel/Compile (see also !Stages)10:58

blackslikscarleo thanks11:47
quiescensNatherul: unless you have changed them at some point, most runlevels are the same by default in ubuntu11:47
kalimojohi. whenever my system updates i have to reinstall my wifi driver. cant get it to work this time :(11:48
Natherulquiescens: ok because the nvidia installer wants runlevel 3 and warns me of this, and if i dont use it the preinstall script fails11:48
Natherulquiescens: not really sure if i should continue when the preinstall script fails :P11:49
Kingsywhcih vnc server is best to use that is running before a user is logged in?11:50
quiescensNatherul: it likely wants X stopped, you can either reboot and add "text" to your boot options as you start or just stop your displaymanager service (which one you have will depend on your specific release)11:51

screwedCan I login to ubuntu without running the .profile? My .profile runs into an infinite loop?11:53
quiescensNatherul: all that said, i find it dubious that any recent installer is really tripping up over ubuntu's style of runlevels, are you doing anything that could be considered particularly uncommon11:54
quiescensNatherul: like an out of date release, or older drivers or anything11:55
Natherulquiescens: no idea, just following the instructions on the nvidia page, and its the latest drivers for x64 linux11:55
SegF4ultI have a slight snag with Ubuntu at the moment, I installed openbox just to check it out, but now my normal 'Ubuntu' session doesn't work as intended.. all I have is metacity and not the entirety of the unity shell anymore11:56
Natherulquiescens: they are not for ubuntu in particular, the drivers from the ubuntu hardware thingie is too old for my graphics card sadly, thats why im trying with the ones from the nvidia homepage11:56
screwedCan I login to ubuntu without running the .profile? My .profile runs into an infinite loop11:57
quiescensNatherul: well if you are sure you need the ones from their site and the ones ubuntu offers to install are inadequate you can try i guess, but i can't really say for sure if it will work or not, hardware support issues are hit and miss unless you find someone with the same hardware that has done it11:57

Infernalikonia, I'm not sure whats the next step. I took a look at /dev/sda1-n if i try to open them up it seas There is no application installed for block device files.14:14
Wargasmarand: how do I use that?14:14
Wargasmarand: nm I got it, thanks14:15
arandWargasm: Something like "sudo update-rc.d tor disable" read "man update-rc.d" for full usage14:15
ikoniaInfernal: /dev/sda1 is your INTERNAL disk14:15
ikoniaInfernal: I've told you /dev/sdb is your flash drive14:16
Wargasmarand: it was update-rc.d -f tor remove14:16
Wargasmis there a way to see whats starting up?14:16
Infernalikonia, Sorry. found it.14:17
arandWargasm: Well, you can either remove or disable it, I guess it's hard to start it post-boot if it's removed.14:17
Wargasmeh, its ok... I actually don't even know how it got there14:19
WargasmI don't like things running unless I run them myself14:20
Infernalikonia, what do i need to do with it?14:20
arandWargasm: YOu could always check why using "aptitude why tor" (provided you have tor installed)14:20
arandWargasm: And maybe even uninstall it if you don't need it..14:21

RedruverHi guys.14:23
arandRIght.14:24
arandWargasm: So you will probably need to have the service running for that browser to work.14:24
RedruverJust a quick question; I've gotten bt5 running on my tablet, and the openjre isedtea plugin isn't working in firefox....14:24
arandWargasm: Well, as long as nothing connects to the tor service it doesn't actually do stuff, I guess.14:24
RedruverAs far as I know it's a ubuntu variant, any idea on what I shoud do?14:25
bazhangRedruver, ask in bt support14:25
bazhang!backtrack | Redruver14:25

mikeman76hey, xubuntu noob here, I have a ati driver problem. I have a acer netbook (aspire one) that has mobility HD4200. The propietory drivers wont install and I am stuck at 1024x600 and I need native res on my tv. Is there an easy fix? like an updated deb package?14:37
Infernalikonia, I bought it 3 days ago. I want to do a read/write benchmark so i can see if its faulty. It reads from 40-80, but if i write to it starts at 80 and by the end of the file transfers its at 5mb/s.14:37
mikeman76sorry the native res is 1920x1080 and its hooked through hdmi14:38
ikoniaInfernal: saying the same thing over and over isn't helping14:38
ikoniaInfernal: I %100 understand you want to bench mark the disk, I fully understand that14:38
Infernalikonia, Well thats it. The native app is not cutting it. I found way of benchmarking via terminal. dd if=/dev/zero of=/tmp/test.data bs=1k count=128k14:40

Logos01mneptok: It's not.15:01
Logos01The file is actually 4KB in size.15:01

Logos01However, it is a sparsefile and because of how CentrifyDC assigns UIDs it is reporting itself as 407GB in size.15:01

quiescensLogos01: 407gb is not actually entirely out of the ordinary for /var/log/lastlog, if df is claiming that it is actually being used like that then that might be a problem, but the displayed size of lastlog has been seen higher than that depending on various factors15:17
Logos01The easiest is sudo apt-add-repository ppa:andphe/php , followed by replacing "natty" with "maverick" in the files it adds in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/15:17
Wouter_When my computer boots (1 os), i get a busybox (intrinfs) and i have to type 'exit' before my computer continues to boot. (after that it works fine). this happened after i installed mdadm (software linux raid). I tried reinstalling ubuntu but every time when i install mdadm i get the busy box again and i have to type exit before it continues. I tried to go to the commandline (in ubuntu) and type sudo update-grub (and grub2) but when 15:17
metallicowhere can i find the repo?15:17
Wouter_Anyone have any ideas?15:17
metallicomlc, that gives me php 5.315:18
Logos01quiescens: I'm aware of that.15:18
Logos01lastlog is *supposed* to be a sparsefile.15:18
Logos01Trouble is, df is honoring it.15:18
Hamedis there is any way to make chmod to folder from right click after choose run as nautilus or something like that15:18
ikoniametallico: I would strongly advise you agaist using an external repo/package from outside hte ubuntu repos15:18
Logos01rabbi1: That looks right by the url.15:18
dvhhSimon1245 : is your laptop powerful enough to trancode video in real time ?15:18
Logos01Hamed: Not really. You can change the executability of it and who is permitted to read/write it from the 'permissions' tab though.15:18
rabbi1Logos01: please can u let me know, i am new to this, hope i won't screw it up15:19

Logos01rabbi1: There are youtube videos that talk about restoring GRUB on a system via chrooting. Watch a few. It's not a rough concept.15:19
Hamedi must enter from gksudo nautilus at first15:19

rabbi1Logos01: ok , thank you15:20
quiescensLogos01: do you actually know that it is lastlog that is showing up in df?15:20
dvhhSimon1245 : trancode mean recoding media for the target player15:20
Logos01Hamed: That's why I suggested a script on your desktop that contains "sudo nautilus ."15:20
quiescensLogos01: and not files that have been "deleted" from the filesystem heirarchy but are still open by a process?15:20
Logos01quiescens: I've only got 28GB of data on the server.15:20
mneptokHamed: if you want to change permissions of things not owned by you, and do it from a GUI, then yes, "gksu nautilus"15:20
Logos01Max has never been above 40.15:20
mneptokHamed: be very, very careful what you do.15:20
Logos01It's reporting over 400.15:20
Simon1245dvhh, No idea if it is15:20
Logos01ls -lh /var/log/lastlog shows 407GB.15:20
kamewhat does "ls ~ " mean?15:21
Logos01kame: It lists out the files in your "home" directory.15:21

mastroI've set up nfs in /etc/fstab. It is not mounting at boot time, if I mount -a after the system has been booted it works15:22

mastroHow do I make an NFS filesystem boot up on ubuntu server?15:22
mastrosorry I meant mount at boot time15:22
crizzymastro: place it to /etc/fstab15:22
quiescensLogos01: still, i would probably check lsof for deleted files just in case, it seems unlikely that df would suddenly decide to misbehave15:23
Logos01mastro: Add it to your /etc/fstab is correct. Be sure to use the IP address rather than the DNS address, for stability.15:23
mastrocrizzy, that's what I did15:23
Logos01quiescens: There aren't any. I've checked.15:23
CharminTheMooseIs there such thing as top for networks?15:23
mastroLogos01, I did.. but it's not mounting at boot time15:23
Logos01Plus; there's simply never been that much data on my system.15:23
mastroLogos01, crizzy and I can mount it with mount -a. So the configuration is correct15:23
mastrocrizzy, Logos01 I would think of this bug: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/sysvinit/+bug/45842 but it's old and closed already15:24
ubottuLaunchpad bug 45842 in sysvinit (Ubuntu) "nfs shares not mounted at startup" [Medium,Fix released]15:24
Logos01mastro: Then it's a network issue; your machine isn't getting network connection "in time" to pick up those shares at boot.15:24
Infernalikonia, Well i managed to make a test. I wanna thank you for your patience :)15:24
Hamedok thank you it's done but every time i must to go to opt then choose lamp then htdocs then my website then    then   then  any way to do it easier than that15:24
mastroLogos01, how so? It's eth0 and I have connection at boot time15:24
theadminHamed: Make a link?15:24
mneptokmastro: are you using NetworkManager to configure interfaces? or is that all defined in /etc/network/interfaces and such?15:24
=== ixela is now known as hatop_
Logos01mastro: Try adding those mount commands to /etc/rc.d/15:24
mastroLogos01, it's ubuntu service, no gui15:25
mastroLogos01, ah.. ubuntu server15:25
theadminHamed: ln -s /opt/lamp/your_website/htdocs ~/htdocs15:25
Logos01mastro: Different things happen at different points in the boot process.15:25
Logos01If the network isn't up when the mount calls are made, nfs mount will fail.15:25
CharlieSuWhen doing a 'apt-get update' I see an 'Ign' which i think is ignore..  Why woudl this happen?   (Ign http://ppa.launchpad.net/eternicode/rtorrent-0.8.7/ubuntu/ lucid/main Translation-en_US)15:25
mastroLogos01, I know.. but on any other system (not ubuntu) I always just placed nfs in /etc/fstab and it booted, so this is probably a bug15:25
theadminCharlieSu: Means the file is unchanged and therefore the old one is used15:25
theadminCharlieSu: Normal, nothing to worry about15:26
mneptokmastro: try adding 'sudo mount -a' to rc.local15:26
Logos01mastro: It's probably a hardware issue.15:26
Logos01Boot order, or network issue.15:26
CharlieSutheadmin: is there a way to list all the packages in this PPA?  I thought i  could install a more recent version of rtorrent w/ it15:26
Logos01If it were genuinely a bug then you would have trouble mounting via mount -a15:26
mastroLogos01, no it isn't I connect to the system with ssh only15:26
theadminCharlieSu: Well, the ingored one is the translations...15:26
mastroLogos01, and it's a virtual machine15:26
theadminCharlieSu: And no, I know no way to list all packages in a repo15:27
mneptokmastro: rc.local gets executed very late in the boot process.15:27
mastromneptok, ok that's an hack tough15:27
mneptokmastro: are you using NetworkManager to configure interfaces? or is that all defined in /etc/network/interfaces and such?15:27
mastromneptok, and I need the NFS to be up BEFORE ssh server15:27
Hameddo you want me to write this code in terminal15:28
Logos01mastro: That's irrelevant.15:28
mneptokmastro: is the network-manager package installed?15:28
Logos01I assure you, your machine -- VM or not -- is not connected to network at boot-time.15:28
Logos01The boot order varies. Try adding the mount -a command to your relevant rc#.d/ directory.15:29
Logos01(I believe for server it's still rc3 ?  Ubuntu's different on that than a lot of distros.)15:29
mastromneptok, I did an ubuntu server installation, no GUI so no NetworkManager (for instance dpkg -l network-manager show "un <none>") and I use DHCP to get up15:29
theadminLogos01: All runlevels are equal... And actually don't exist anymore15:29
CharlieSutheadmin: if there are multiple repos that have the same package how will it choose which one to use?15:29
Logos01theadmin: Grr. that's a Debianism right?15:29
theadminCharlieSu: apt will just use the most up-to-date one normally15:29
theadminLogos01: Yeah15:29
theadminLogos01: Well, actually that's just being used to the sane SysV Init system...15:30
Logos01theadmin: I'm too RHEL these days. Which is alright since I'm adminning ~500 of them.15:30
Logos01... don't even get me started on Upstart. >_<15:30
FischerFritzI am trying to boot into Ubuntu (11.10) on a macbookpro 5,1 but without any success, even with rEFIt --> the boot process end with the error message "missing operating system". Any hints?15:30
mastroLogos01, and how would that happen? usually there's only a place when network is brought up15:30
Logos01mastro: The boot order varying? It just depends on when the hardware is initialized.15:31
CharlieSuis there a difference between lucid and lucid1 ?15:31
martianmastro: I didn't see the original question, but are you trying to get a network mount to work in fstab?15:31
Logos01mastro: Also, are you using IP addresses or DNS entries?15:31
mneptokmastro: can you pastebin /etc/network/interfaces?15:31
mastromneptok, nothing special on it... it's the default: auto eth0 \n iface eth0 inet dhcp15:32
mastromneptok, and the loopback interface just before that15:33
FischerFritzforgot to mention that I am trying to boot from a usb flash drive, since the built-in CD/DVD-drive is gone15:33
Logos01quiescens: Any thoughts on why df would be behaving that way?15:33

SliMMI have a problem with pulseaudio and network configuration15:46
martianmastro: I am fairly certain that you need to add _netdev to the options like: _netdev,rw,hard,intr15:46
socrates_johnsonfirekraag: sorry i'm not great with the codecs stuff...basically an unpixeled .mp4 and/or .avi is all i'm interested in15:46
martianmastro: that tells the system that you need networking first to mount that device15:46
socrates_johnsonfirekraag: this is the command that works in redhat but not my ubuntu machine: ffmpeg -i out.ogv -vcodec mpeg4 -sameq ffmpeg.avi15:46
metallicoCharlieSu, i just found it, thanks15:47
mlcmeerkats: have you clear the text in the search filer?15:47
firekraagsocrates_johnson: avi and mp4 are containers. basically, just boxes. but depending on the device that is going to read your video you will have to choose a proper encoder15:47
SliMMfirstly, the pulseaudio daemon doesn't seem to be starting properly, because I cannot use "pactl" to load modules or "pavucontrol" (I get "connection refused")15:47
meerkatsmlc, yes15:47

mlcrabbi1: if you save your home directory15:51
martianmastro: I don't really know, but I've had to do it on my machines. I guess the kernel will normally try to mount devices before making network connections, or do them in parallel, so with that option it forces it to wait for networking to complete before attempting to mount15:51
mlcrabbi1: sorry, i mean save your home directory15:51

In KDE  I used klipper, while the history was open, i was albe to type chars and the list would be filtered accordingly.

mneptokLint: what i proposed is not for the inexperienced.16:13
LjLLint: "unpack and configure", no you can't, not automatically. but you can extract it and if needed run the postinst script manually.16:13
Lintif you don't want to help me, I'll do it my way16:13

leifmadsenmorning all; I'm trying to figure out why I can't get the audio on my 11.10 system working. This is an upgrade from 10.10->11.04 where audio used to work. I've tried googling and tried all the suggestions I can find; deleting the ~/.pulse directory, reinstalling sound drivers/modules, but i can't seem to get past the sound settings showing anything but the Dummy Output16:14
mneptokLint: it's not that i don't want to help you. it's that anyone experienced enough to start messing with packages the way you propose does not then say, "give me the commands."16:15
OerHeksLint what packages are you ranting about ?16:15
LintOerHeks, gtk-doc-tools16:15
Lintit wants its dependencies16:16
=== mongy_ is now known as mongy
theadminLint: Uh, okay, install them?16:17
theadminLint: All you need is likely: sudo apt-get -f --reinstall install gtk-doc-tools16:17
Linttheadmin, don't want them, don't need them, only this package is needed16:17
Lintbut it's 'broken' without them and that completely blocks apt-get work16:17
theadminLint: This makes no sense you know, if you need a package and need it to work (and you do), you need the deps as well. Familiarize yourself with the content of packages.16:18
LjLLint: if they're dependencies but the package is not actually dependant on them, then file a bug.16:18

cristian_cHi16:29
cristian_cI'm using Oneiric Ocelot 11.10, I purchased an asus WL-330gE. The device shields the connection to the router, unfortunately I have to first establish a direct connection to the router, and then the computer automatically snaps to a repeater. But if the PC tries to connect to the router via the repeater, it fails16:29
haidaraeskarume thanks a million man16:29
cristian_cthe network manager tries to connect several times, but it fails to connect. So I updated the firmware to the latest version, from version 2.0.1.9 to 2.0.2.0, but unfortunately the problem persists16:30

xxdigitolxxcan someone help me figure out how to stream video with htaccess in place on apache?16:33
xxdigitolxxbefore htaccess was setup i was able to just copy a link from a directory listing to play it through vlc or any video player16:34
xxdigitolxxbut now htaccess is in place..i believe it requires authentication on each video link16:34
xxdigitolxxso the video player will not play without authentication16:34
onceltucahi im running 11.10. i have a problem.  when im trying to login as my user i come back to the login screen. it is ok to log in as guest though.. someone that recognizes this problem?16:34

xxdigitolxxor an option i have to set in my apache configuration or htaccess config16:34
=== marco is now known as Guest51550
PlaneCrazy1If I was to go back to 10.04 I guess I would have to repartition and reinstall 10.04...correct?16:35
meskarunelint: actually GUI are not always better16:36
onceltucahow can i start ubuntu without starting X?16:36
bluefrogxxdigitolxx, put your htaccess on pastebin16:36
rumpe1PlaneCrazy1, yes. Clean, fresh reinstall. Maybe make a backup of /home before that, because user profiles could get invalid16:36
rumpe1onceltuca, "text" as kernel parameter in grub boot menu should work16:37
xxdigitolxxplanecrazy1....if you run setup from 10.04 cd it should guide you through the whole process of repartitioning and reinstall of 10.0416:37
meskaruneonceltuca: you can add an entry in grub that has ubuntu boot in run level 316:37
xxdigitolxxonceltuca, um...try using ubuntu-server edition..there is no x installed.16:38
onceltucarumpe1: how do i get to grub16:38
meskaruneonceltuca: in grub legacy you would add "ro 3" to the end of the kernel line. but its probably a different procedure for grub216:38
rumpe1onceltuca, the boot screen should be grub16:38
PlaneCrazy1Thanks. Can the home folder be copied to the the newly installed 10.04 if I do side by side install of 10.04 next to 11.10?16:38
onceltucaxxdigitolxx: but i have already installed it. Actually im logged in as aguest right now16:38

=== ixela is now known as hatop_
onceltucarumpe1: it just starts ubuntu right away16:39
meskarunehaidara: you don't have to close the terminal window. :)16:39
rumpe1PlaneCrazy1, you can copy your home folder, yes. You might sometimes get version conflicts though.16:39
onceltucameskarune: doesnt this require root access ?16:39
rumpe1onceltuca, how did you add the kernel parameter?16:39
onceltucameskarune: im logged in as guest.16:39
PlaneCrazy1yah I kind of figured...thanks16:40
meskaruneonceltuca: I see. you will need root access to edit grub parameters16:40
onceltucarumpe1: havnt added any parameters.16:40
mneptokPlaneCrazy1: why not keep 11.10 and just change the UI?16:40
onceltucai just couldnt log in today with my user name.16:41
PlaneCrazy1what do u mean by changing the UI?16:41
onceltucameskarune: thats the problem16:41
haidaraim sorru 4 bothering you ... but its the first time i use kubuntu ??? now i think i installed that thing what sgould i do next ???16:41
theadminPlaneCrazy1: Replace Unity with Gnome Shell, Gnome Fallback, XFCE16:41
meskarunePlaneCrazy1: you could just share your home with both install's. (if home is on its own partition) you'd just have to mount it in fstab16:41

xxdigitolxxi would only like to have authentication to the directory listing16:45
onceltucameskarune: yed. there is one more account that has root but shes no around right now16:45
bluefrogxxdigitolxx, dunno but there's maybe an option in vlc to pass credentials16:45

xxdigitolxxthanks.16:45
xxdigitolxxi'll try looking for that.16:45
meskaruneonceltuca: well, you should only let the person who owns the system and has root access edit things like grub :P16:46

RawProduceSomelauw: probably something like this: http://www.webupd8.org/2010/01/how-to-create-your-own-gpg-key.html17:23
tMHmeskarune - I think AOS (acronis os selector) did found sdb1 and put the bootable point in it's list, I am even almost sure thatn AOS give no flying fsck about GRUB at all. it just _loading_ bootsector from sdb1.17:23
tMHnow it's time to remove GRUB;)17:24
Dr_willisdeltafoss:  'dependencies in the / directory' does jnot make a lot of sence.17:24
SomelauwRawProduce: I don't understand why I would need to do this, but okay I'll try.17:24
SomelauwThanks17:24
RawProduceSomelauw: I assume that dpkg checks the validity of packages with GPG - does installing other stuff work?17:25
qw-Russianрудз ьу здуфыу17:25
qw-Russianhelp me please17:25
blitzwhat is your problem qw-Russian17:25
deltafossnot really, a new filesystem i created, so i installed a software from "/" to /mnt/usb which then created /lib, /etc /bin. i didnt get it to run because all its dependencies lives in "/"17:25
trismSomelauw: are you building a deb? (I just arrived so missed the error), the -uc and -us flags disable signing if so17:26
RawProduceqw-Russian: chto ne robotayet?17:26
Dr_willisdeltafoss:  installed it how exactly?17:26
qw-RussianI tried to set Access through a cantilever and the program hung up began to be knocked out very much many errors 35 i would like killed this procced17:26
tMH"rabotaet", from word 'rab' - slave, btw17:26
Somelauwtrism: Yes, I want to install wmii, so I am building a deb for it.17:26
meskarunetMH: ok, it looks like acronis doesn't support linux booting. so you'll either have to delete acronis and use grub, or leave it chain loaded.17:27
RawProduceqt-Russian: find the PID of the process with "ps -A | grep [program name here]"17:27
qw-RussianRawProduce, da blin pitalsya access pastavit a proga zavisla i ne znau kak ybit proses17:27
SomelauwRawProduce: Yes, I am making a deb to install something here.17:27
RawProduceqw-Russian: then run "kill -9 [PID number here]"17:27
tMHmeskarune - total wrong, if it cannot support linux loading then there will be "switch" to sdb1 at all:)17:27
capcooksorry for the offtopic request. i dont know where to ask. does anyone know a channel where i can talk about irc sed encryption?17:27
qw-RussianRawProduce, ya ne vigy ego v procese17:27
bazhangqw-Russian, english here only17:27
tMHmeskarune - and - I like acronis much more than grub:) is there ANY way to remove grub from sdb1, anyway? :))17:28
qw-Russianokey17:28
RawProduceqw-Russian: do you see it if you run "top"?17:28
meskarunetMH: its chainloaded. please see here: http://kb.acronis.com/content/158417:28
qw-Russianno17:28
qw-Russiannot see17:28
bazhangqw-Russian, are you talking about MS access?17:28
deltafossDr_willis: actually handled by TP-link router17:28
RawProduceqw-Russian: "apt-get install htop", it's a top alternative that's easier to use17:28
meskarunetMH: if you remove grub you will not be able to boot linux17:28
trismSomelauw: yeah then: debuild -uc -us -b; should be what you want (well depending on how you are building it)17:28
qw-Russianbazharng17:28
qw-Russianyes17:28
nils_tMH: you could probably overwrite the boot sector...17:28
tMHnils_ - with what ?17:28
tMHwhat mbr?17:29
RawProducethen find the process, press F9, then 9, then enter17:29
RawProduceis it running in a GUI window?17:29
trismSomelauw: not that you can't sign it if you want to (if you were, say, uploading to launchpad for a ppa)17:29
tMHmeskarune - I am _almost_ sure that if _i'd had to install that xubuntu - I'd reformat sdb1 once again, partition it with / and swap and THEN I'd tell xubuntu to NOT install no OS loaders at all.17:29
Somelauwtrism: Can I also do sudo make install directly? What is the difference between doing that and installing a deb?17:30
qw-RussianRawProduce, see http://pastebin.com/AppteuwG17:30
tMHmeskarune - and THEN acronis will load sdb1 by itself w/o any problem.17:30
nils_tMH: well to overwrite the first 512 bytes you could do dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sdb1 bs=512 count=117:30
SomelauwI didn't need to sign everything when I was building a deb before.17:30
meskarunetMH: I would suggest changing grub so that it boots directly to xubuntu without a pause, that way you won't have to see the grub screen every time you reboot. but you cannot delete grub without making linux unbootable. acronis is chain linked so that it sends you to grub when you click on xubuntu. please read the link I gave to you.17:30
nils_is arconis able to boot linux?17:30
tMHnils_ - I imagine that:) but if I'll overwrite those 512 sectors then sdb1 will be NON-bootable at all. right?17:30
SubjectOneanybody here a name for a program that i can use for creating databases ( with an ncurse interface ? )17:30
meskarunenils_: NO acronis is not able to boot linux17:30
nils_tMH: well yeah there will be zero were grub once was.17:30
RawProduceqw-Russian: that means it's already installed, so run "htop", find the program in the list, hit F9, 9, enter17:31
SomelauwThe only time I ever needed to mess with generating keys was when I wanted to use git.17:31
nils_meskarune: well then he'll need grub or lilo or syslinux anyways...17:31
Somelauwor github17:31
tMHnils_ - once again - if grub is NOT installed - are there zeros , normally ?17:31
meskarunetMH: please read this before you break your system: http://kb.acronis.com/content/158417:31
RawProduceqw-Russian: if it's in a GUI window, run "xkill" and click on the offending window17:31
qw-RussianRawProduce, join PM please17:31
mongSubjectOne: you could try sqlite3 for simple database work17:31
RawProduceanyone know how to join a PM in irssi? :)17:31
meskarunenils_: he wants to delete grub because its ugly. but since acronis doesn't boot linux, grub can't be deleted. :P17:31
tMHbtw. there was a LILO once upon a time17:31
tMHwhy don't use it instead of grub ?17:31
nils_lilo sucks17:32
tMHmb..17:32
nils_grub is far superior.17:32
meskarunetMH: you will notice I mentioned lilo eariler :P17:32
OnkeltemIts a scoff! Kazam either makes MKV or WebM. First, can't be opened in AviDemux. Latter is opened, but picture is broken and video runs two times faster then normal!17:32
ariestiyansyahhello there17:32
tMHmeskarune - btw, is there ANY way to tell grub _not stopping_ for loading xbuntu? I mean - remove all other entries from it's menu etc?17:32
SubjectOnethanx mong, i'll give it a try17:32
ariestiyansyahsomebody know config ipv6 in ubuntu ?17:32
meskarunetMH: if you don't want to see grub when you boot linux, get rid of the 30 second boot delay and it will boot directly into linux wihtout showing grub17:32
mun_hi17:33
daweefolkhi, I'm trying to use youtube-dl but i want to specify where videos will download. Is there a youtubedlrc or something?17:33
tMHand - the main question is - if I'll set a pause = 0 - will it continue loading without pause or will fait forever?;))17:33
trismSomelauw: you could just make install if you wanted, building a package is generally nicer though, it is hard to say without knowing exactly what you are doing (where the packaging for wmii is coming from)17:33
mun_does anyone know of an applet for monitoring network speed that's usable in Gnome 3 fallback?17:33
daweefolkgenerally pause=0 pauses indefinitely i believe17:33
tMHmeskarune - delay set to 0 will load linux w/o pause OR will say grub to wait forever?;)))17:33
daweefolki have pause=1 on mine17:34
tMHso GRUB is not only multiOS manager - itself it a LOADER like lilo was...17:34
tMHnice thingie, fsck it...17:34
tMHI'll have to read about GRUB then..17:34
meskarunetMH: yeah, set the delay to 0 so that there is no delay and it boots linux right away17:35
undecimWhat would be the ill effects of installing the Natty dpkg package on Lucid?17:35
tMHmeskarune - ok, I'll tell pal to do that on tomorrow.17:35
tMHthanks all:)17:35
meskarunesure17:35
meskaruneundecim: you could have some libraries that aren't the right versions. its possible it could mess up your system17:36
undecimThen I have to compile dpkg 1.16 from source, I guess17:36
undecimBecause the sync() in 1.15 is hanging my system, thrashing my hard drives, and just generally ticking me off17:37
Somelauwtrism: I did a checkout from hg17:37
SomelauwI am not sure but I think building a deb makes it easier to uninstall, but building a dep itself is harder.17:38
meskaruneundecim: even compiling from source you can run into library version problems.17:38
meskaruneundecim: you could install natty as a chroot in /opt adn then run the programs you need from that17:38
capcooksorry for asking again. does anyone know a channel to talk about irc protocol?17:39
undecimmeskarune: I think it would be a little complicated running a package manager from a chroot....17:39
mongcapcook: maybe #freenode17:40
meskaruneundecim: http://wiki.eprints.org/w/Installing_in_a_chroot_Debian/Ubuntu  that is a tutorial, though you might need to change some setting to version / OS you want to use17:40
undecimmeskarune: Yeah, but if I use the package manager in the chroot, then it changes the programs in my chroot, not my system17:41
meskaruneundecim: so instead of fiesty you would put natty17:41
capcookmong: thanks for your reply. ill try.17:41
suyashhi17:42
meskaruneundecim: you could upgrade I guess :/17:42
meskaruneundecim: or use a rolling release linux distrobution that is more up to date17:42
mun_can the software centre be used to search using library names, e.g., libgtk2.0-dev? it somehow doesn't give any result in the software centre, but apt-get finds it.17:42
undecimmeskarune: Yeah, but I've got about 72 hours of file operations queued....17:42
cortmanmun_: that's what apt-cache search is for.17:43
=== patrunjel is now known as Patrunjel
cortmanapt-cache search --names-only, if you just want names17:43
mun_cortman, is there any way to bring back synaptic rather than software centre?17:43
=== Patrunjel is now known as Patrunjell
trismSomelauw: I see, it has a deb target in the Makefile, if you look at the makefile, it is just running dpkg-buildpackage, you could always add -uc -us to disable signing to that line17:44
mun_cortman, or somehow search using library names in software centre?17:44
cortmanmun, is it not installed?17:44
mun_oh it's a package17:44
mun_installable package17:44
mun_ok17:44
mun_thanks17:44
FloodBot1mun_: Please don't flood; use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste; don't use Enter as punctuation.17:44
magmahow can I see the specifics of my harddrive thgouth the command line? like if I have a SATA and buffer size17:44
mun_cortman, well it crashes. "terminate called after throwing an instance of std::out_of_range"17:45
meskaruneundecim: you should wait until your file operations are done, then either upgrade or use a more uptodate OS :)17:45
cortmanmun, you're saying synaptic crashes?17:46
mun_cortexman, yeah.17:46
cortmanuninstall/reinstall? Were you having any package trouble, or just with Synaptic?17:46
mun_cortman, just synaptic17:46
cortmanmun, Also, if you want to search package names, you can do so from the command line using the commands I gave earlier.17:47
undecimmeskarune: LTS is supposed to get bug fixes for 5 years17:47
llutzmagma: sudo hdparm -i /dev/sdX17:47
mun_cortman, i've fixed it now.17:47
cortmanmun, great. I'm curious, how?17:48
meskaruneundecim: don't complain to me about an unfixed bug. :P17:48
mun_cortman, gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface toolkit-accessibility false17:48
undecimmeskarune: Don't complain to me about my Ubuntu version XD17:48
cortmanmun, OH YES. I remember that fix.17:48
mun_cortman, no idea why though17:48
meskarunemagma: http://www.cyberciti.biz/faq/linux-getting-scsi-ide-harddisk-information/17:48
cortmanmun, it's a bug. It's also used if you can't launch Synaptic except through a terminal.17:48
vltHello. What can I do to get rid of the green square I see in chromium browser on Oneiric instead of the video? (It works in Firefox.)17:48
meskaruneundecim: :P maybe ask the dev's if there is a fix in the works. or upgrade. I don't know what else to tell you. you don't want to break your system more. :)17:49
mun_cortman, i've only upgraded to 11.10 for a day, but it seems to me synaptic is far better than software center. am i missing something?17:50
cortmanmun, NO. Synaptic all the way17:50
mun_ok. i'm glad!17:50
meskarunemun_: I don't even use GUI pachage managers :P17:50
kallistiwhere can I find the Garamond typefaces for Ubuntu?17:50
cortmanmun, Way more control. Much more stable (i've helped many people on the forums fixing broken software centre), and has the nifty download script feature.17:51
mun_meskarune, i'm lazy :P17:51
vltHello. I installed Ubuntu Oneiric and now everytime I log in my audio volume is set to 100 %, no matter what I select in lightdm. Any idea how to fix this?17:51
celinahelp how do i configure java to play online games17:51
meskarunemun_: I feel that more complexity = more change for something to break :)17:51
celinano matter what install it don't  seem to work17:51
