zykotick9OccupynMyChair: with less then 4GB of ram you will get minimal benefit from 64BIT and it will use MORE memory then 32bit.00:24

zykotick9OccupynMyChair: but it depends what you are doing, if it's a lot of video/music encoding 64bit is still "probably" better00:25

exutuxRandom832: I use that "solution" on some servers00:26
FreeMemit's not like it's a secret which driver you have.  apt-get uninstall --flush whatever and reinstall.  You need to have more confidence00:26

Random832exutux: er, the problem is he has to be able to use two keyboard layouts at runtime, and one doesn't let him type in commands00:27
pangolinReKoN: there is no version that is better. Bugs will always be present in software so it is impossible to say it is bug free.00:27
exutuxLint: on X he can switch language, doesn't he?00:27
OccupynMyChairzykotick9; yeah, i hear ya on the <4GB bit, but this a just a game server, each instance using about 900MB, but to catch the hackers I gotta sniff packets and filter the captures from time to time... and yes, plenty of HDD space left still...00:27
Erealzpangolin i just apt-get ubuntu-restricted-extras  E: invalid operation ubuntu-restricted-extras00:27

magicJI want to run 11.10 from a usb stick - I made it with "startup disk creator" works fine - the one thing I would like to do is dump the  choice of install/run when it boots - how do I do that?00:58
zykotick9magicJ: do a full install to the USB stick instead00:59
FreeMemmagicJ: edit the grub/lilo00:59
zykotick9FreeMem: i don't think SDC uses grub (and certainly not lilo)01:00
FreeMemokay I don't know what it uses.01:00
Jordan_Uzykotick9: FreeMem: Startup Disk Creator uses syslinux.01:00

zykotick9magicJ: install from a CD (is possible, would require 2 USB keys if not) and choose the USB as install path01:07

samuelforgot hello again jen, hang on lemme have a look, did you download it from the website?01:48
samuelah, its a deb file jen, all you got to do is download the right one, depending on whether you are running 32 or 64bit, then find it in your downloads folder and double click on it01:49
samuelit will open in the software center and you can install it from there01:50

samuellol there was nothing to say you had gone01:51
`Korvinikonia, what program is good?01:52
p3rsistexutux: I tried -p but it preserves permissions from the local host... and try to overwrite destination's permissions. I want to preserver destination's permission01:52

delinquentmehey all so I've gotten my little brother installed up running with ubuntu  .. and im wondering if anyone has a suggestion of some cool things that I can show him that'll get him excited abut running it01:56
p3rsistexutux: I use -zrv and --delete01:56
CLIaddictI tried sudo getty -L 115200 ttyS0 vt10201:56
delinquentmefor me its just that its bomb proof .. but thats something that takes time to sink in01:56
CLIaddictand it exits after 5 seconds01:57
Erealzshe started with i dont care stuff01:57
CLIaddictwith no messages01:57
CLIaddictI'm running Ubuntu 10.1001:57
CLIaddicthelp?01:57
Erealznp keep it to your self01:57
natethegreat1419@Erealz: cause you have a OS that is ubuntu with different preloaded items so they call it backtrack and they dont like it01:57
exutuxp3rsist: try using --chmod= with permission that you want01:57
exutuxp3rsist: --chmod=66601:58
exutuxonly an example01:58
CLIaddictuhh is everyone ignoring me?01:58
exutuxp3rsist: but what kind of filesystem host have01:59
Stanley00CLIaddict: what's your problem?01:59
moesI have a live cd of lubuntu-10.10...when i boot to a high end computer the o/s specs are lubuntu-10.10...when I boot to a low end computer the boot screen is purple and shows ubuntu-10.10 and the specs are ubuntu-10.10...why is this different ???01:59

p3rsistrioderelfte: I use -zrv and --delete02:00
aBounddelinquentme, You can flare him with Compiz.02:00

bludthanks :p02:04
CLIaddictannnnd I'm not being helped _again_....02:04
ikoniaCLIaddict: stop02:04
hydrox24blud: is the issue simply that you plug in a (powered on) monitor and it doesn't appear under the display settings?02:04
ikoniaCLIaddict: if someone can help you they will02:04
Stanley00CLIaddict: sorry, system crash? Did someone answer your weustion?02:04
Stanley00*question*?02:04
CLIaddictStanley00: no, no one did02:04
ikoniaCLIaddict: complaining that no-one can help you at this time constantly isn't helpful02:05
CLIaddictStanley00: did you catch my question?02:05
hydrox24CLIaddict: Don't expect things to be so quick too...02:05
Stanley00CLIaddict: just got "getty timeout after 5 secs" ?02:05
exutuxp3rsist: so try to set your permission with --chmod02:05
bludhydrox24: well, i guess so, I mean the problem is that no signal is coming from the VGA out port, and seemingly what is causing that problem is that my ubuntu doesn't even recognize that it has a vga out port02:05
CLIaddictStanley00: yes02:06
ikoniaif you are getting getty exit quickly, it's normally because the device at the other end isn't either listening, or can't communicate with your application02:06
bludlike when i run xrandr -q it doesnt even show up02:06
CLIaddictikonia: thanks02:06
p3rsistexutux: can I also change remote group ownership with rsync?02:06
Stanley00CLIaddict: how do you know that prob? I think getty wont show up by default. I mean the default boot-up is a GUI?02:06
hydrox24blud: have you looked at lower level commands/details like using lshw and lspci?02:06
ikoniaCLIaddict: speeds/flow control etc can all be a factor02:06
hydrox24blud: lshw specifically02:07
bludI have used them to see what they say yeah02:07
CLIaddictStanley00: I'm working via SSH02:07
CLIaddictikonia: well speeds and flow are correctly set on both ends02:07
hydrox24blud: and there's nothing about the VGA port?02:07
ikoniaCLIaddict: what are you actually connecting to ?02:07
exutuxp3rsist: p3rsist -o owner -g group02:08
GneaI'm using Ubuntu 11.04 with an nviida GPU and have the 3d driver installed from the repository... but fullscreen at 720p is horribly sluggish and even 480p is kinda bad... it's a dualcore P4 3ghz with 4ghz of ram... it didn't do this in 10.04, so what should I look for?02:08
Gnea*nvidia02:08
CLIaddictikonia: I'm attempting to connect to a ThinkCentre Pentium 4 box via Serial cable using minicom02:08
hydrox24Gnea: fullscreen flash or playing of a file?02:08
exutuxp3rsist: -o super-user-only02:08
CLIaddictikonia: I followed this guide https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SerialConsoleHowto02:08
Gneahydrox24: flash and files02:08
exutuxp3rsist: look at the man rsync02:08
ikoniaCLIaddict: thinkcenter, is that the IBM e series blade thing ?02:09
CLIaddictikonia: I get kernel boot messages02:09
CLIaddictikonia: no, its not a blade02:09
CLIaddictikonia: its an old desktop02:09
ikoniaCLIaddict: not aware of the device02:09
ArturasSHey02:09
bludhydrox24: well there's a display controller and a VGA compatible controller02:09
aBoundHi02:09
CLIaddictikonia: condsider it a normal desktop/workstation02:09
bludin lshw02:10
hydrox24Gnea: OK, so how did you install that 3d driver. Did you use the "additional drivers' interface or straight from the repos?02:10
CLIaddictikonia: it has 1 serial port02:10
hydrox24blud: are you using a laptop?02:10
bludyes02:10
hydrox24blud: if so, what is the make and model?02:10
CLIaddictikonia: and I succesfully communicated to it before via that cable and hardware02:10
Gneahydrox24: yes, used the 'additional drivers' so it got it from the repository02:10
MantisTobogenHi I have downloaded ubuntu 32bit 11.10 twice and both times the disc image was unable to be mounted on either of my mac books02:10
Gneahydrox24: also, this is the AMD64 release02:10
CLIaddictikonia: but that was with minicom on both ends02:10
hydrox24Gnea: ok, so you shouldn't be having issues..02:10
MantisTobogenDo you think it is safe to burn or will it just waste my cd02:10
exutuxp3rsist: so I think that -p preserve permission on destination, not from source02:10
bludbtw, lspci shows the same 2 things. BRB i will go find out what the make and model is02:10
Jordan_UMantisTobogen: Did you check the md5sum?02:11
hydrox24Gnea: hmmm that AMD tidbit may be the issue02:11
ikoniaCLIaddict: can you test it with minicom currently ?02:11
Jordan_U!md5sum | MantisTobogen02:11
ubottuMantisTobogen: 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_Windows02:11
CLIaddictnow I'm attempting to use getty on that end, so I get a terminal02:11
CLIaddictikonia: I'll try02:11
matjuIs there some way to get Gnome Classic on Ubuntu 11.10 in a way that is not severely crippled ?02:11
CLIaddictikonia: also SSH has been flaky on it only just recently02:11
hydrox24Gnea: actually no, I am running 64-bit too if that's what you mean (though you meant *ATI* when you saif *AMD* ... FAIL)02:11
Gneahydrox24: yeah.. it's an intel cpu :)02:11
ikoniamatju: gnome 2 is dead, the sooner you move on from it, the easier you'll find adapting in the long run02:11
hydrox24matju: I found that I had that issue too, I am now using gnome 3 happily though so I never bothered fixing classic...02:12
Blue1hmm02:12
Blue1so why did linus go to xfce?02:12
bludhydrox24: it is a Dell Inspiron 115002:12
ikoniaBlue1: ask him02:12
Gneahydrox24: I'm not an ATI fan.. if they have better hardware, it'd be nice if they'd prove it with proper driver support02:12
matjuikonia: why is Gnome Classic still in the menu if it's not usable anymore ? gnome-panel bars can't be configured, etc.02:13
CLIaddictikonia: yeah I _WAS_ just connected via SSH but now SSH is taking forever to connect02:13
ikoniamatju: it won't be in the next release.02:13
hydrox24Gnea: are there diffferent options in additional drivers, if so is it worth trying the others?02:13
Blue1ask mr. shuttleworth02:13
CLIaddictikonia: and its not a network issue02:13
ikoniaCLIaddict: looks like the machine has an error then02:13
hydrox24blud: looking into it now02:13
matjuhydrox24: haven't found much that I can call happy in either Gnome 3 or Ubuntu Desktop...02:13
Gneahydrox24: but I looked on ubuntuforums and someone said I should try using prelink, which doesn't seem like it would do much of anything since everything's already loaded anyway02:13
brontoshey all.  Any of you get the broadcom 43xx modem working on ubuntu 11.10?  I am using a dell e650002:13
CLIaddictikonia: that only popped up yesterday?02:13
CLIaddictodd02:13
ikoniaCLIaddict: sounds like it02:13
Gneahydrox24: nah it just showed the latest02:14
ikoniaCLIaddict: hardware does fail02:14
CLIaddicttrue02:14
CLIaddictikonia: what log files should I poke? for info on failing hardware02:14
ikoniaCLIaddict: syslog is always a good place to start, but it won't show things such as "PSU starting to die" unless you have voltage monitors active (for example)02:15
hydrox24matju: I gave unity about 2 weeks to try and break it in before deciding I didn't like it, then I switched to gnome 3, didn't like it for the first week and now I am addicted!02:15
MantisTobogenok thanks checksum is fine according to the ubuntu wiki, just weird how it won't mount but then again it is mac :\02:15
CLIaddictikonia: thanks02:15
Blue1YMMV applies I guess02:15
matjuhydrox24: what causes the addiction ?02:15
CLIaddictMantisTobogen: whats wrong?02:15
hydrox24brontos: busy right now so I can't help, but it is well documented I do believe so check ubuntu forums..,02:16
CLIaddictMantisTobogen: I'm familiar with *nix on both Mac and Linux02:16
brontoshydrox24, yeah, I have seen several things but none of them have worked...02:16
MantisTobogenCLIaddict don't worry about it I resolved my problem thanks for the willingness to help though :)02:16
hydrox24matju: faster than unity, much less buggy, awesome looking interface, love that it uses the super key as well... plus with a little fiddling it's as customizable as i wan't!02:17

matjuhydrox24: (note : Gnome 3 is what i have currently selected. I can't even find where's the system config)02:20
hydrox24matju: haven't done that as I find simply typing into the search bar a related keyword works wonders, but I can understand you want heirachial menus. try xfce as a window manager02:20
hydrox24matju: to find the system config without the search bar try: top left button to get app launch interface, then click the applications button (windows will be selected) then down the right side choose system02:21
hydrox24blud: unfortunately that VGA you mentioned is definetely your laptop screen, can you confirm the VGA out works in another OS or distro?02:22
hydrox24blud: preferably OS02:22
matjuhydrox24: if I install and use XFCE, do i get full access to GNOME apps ?02:22
bludlike.. what, dual boot into another OS?02:22
brontoshydrox24, yeah probably so.02:22
munhi02:23
hydrox24blud: OK, so you don't know if the VGA port works at all... as in it may be a HW issue02:23
hydrox24matju: Yes, they still run02:23
matjuhydrox24: yeah, i found the system config already. Didn't look at that list, because it didn't even look like it was clickable.02:23

Ben64evildaem1n: anyone who is in the admin group can sudo03:12
mrizablud, u can upgrade the kernel using "sudo apt-get update" and then "sudo apt-get dist-upgrade" after the frist one03:12

god-zotachydrox24:: its a usb headset with + and - for volume up and down04:54
urfr332gODanny_Joris, not really supported here.04:54
hydrox24god-zotac: interesting, and xfce sees this as a keyboard?04:54
god-zotachydrox24:: i have a bash script written to control pulse audio on the correct audio device04:54
Blue1Danny_Joris: ipv6?04:54
Danny_Jorisurfr332gO: ubuntu server then?04:54
god-zotachydrox24:: it sees the keypresses as XF86RaiseVolume or XF86LowerVolume04:54
Danny_JorisBlue1: inet604:54
cfhowlettmatt-whi  system>administration>hardware drivers should pick that up...04:55
urfr332gODanny_Joris, if nobody helps I would try ##linux not sure really. :)04:55

god-zotacor XF86AudioRaise  / XF86AudioLower i mean04:55
Analicahi alL!04:55
Danny_Jorisok cool - tnx04:55
hydrox24god-zotac: OK, and is the issue that when you press them, nothing happens to the volume?04:55
playithey04:55
god-zotachydrox24:: it works fine with the same headset on my gentoo box04:55
god-zotachydrox24:: when i press them it isn't issuing the custom command i have set to be run, which is 'usbctl plus'04:56
hydrox24god-zotac: I have multimedia keys on my laptop mapped to those and they work great!04:56
playitim trying to figure out why samba does not work on my ubuntu 11.10 installation.. Only non stock thing I have done to it is 'gnome-shell' which is gnome 3.204:56
god-zotachowever manually running the command usbctl plus will increase the volume correctly, so i know its not my script04:56
AnalicaPlease tell me a analog of TOR?04:56

cfhowlettmatt-whi   I've had great success with the broadcom linux STA driver - You have to do some terminal work though ...05:00
god-zotachydrox24:: it is not needing mapped, the odd thing is xfce recognizes the keypress as XF86Audio*05:00
Analicaand where top channel?05:00
Analicator05:00
god-zotachydrox24:: it just is like there is some other XF86Audio* mapped somewhere outside of the Keyboard settings in xfce05:00
matt-whicfhowlett- I would definitely prefer terminal work...tried a few things but am starting to go crazy. It's a fresh install of 11.1005:00
Canadian1296Analica: Go to #ubuntu-offtopic and stop replying here.05:00
_MarcusAnalica: you are on the wrong IRC network.05:00

hydrox24god-zotac: sorry, gotta get this straight, so pressing the key on the headset does the XF86Audio thing butn that isn't what you want? Or does it not do anything?05:03
cfhowlettmatt-whi   my suggestion:  do the process then save it in a dropbox or something.  I just re-installed ubuntustudio a few hours ago - lost the wifi.  However, I had saved the folders in my admin /home.  a bit of modprobe and insmod and it turns out I DIDN'T have to go scavenge wifi at Staples - it all came back swimmingly.05:03

Analicahydrox24, are you FAP (full a person)?05:04
god-zotachydrox24::  it recognizes it as XF86AudioRaise when I press the + but only in the XFCE Settings > Keyboard > Shortcuts,  when i map the command to that it does not run the command, however if i map say ctrl + up to the same command, it works fine..05:04
=== mankala is now known as Guest59134
god-zotacit is like something else is taking precedence over my custom mapping and not allowing my command to be ran, when i press the button i will see the active window title blink like it is doing something, but it does nothing..05:05
matt-whiok, I have the STA driver installed plus fwcutter and still nothing. When I activate STA it says "wireless is disabled by hardware switch." rkill list says "Hard blocked: YES"05:06

god-zotachydrox24:: and like i said,  on my gentoo install using the same settings, same headset, it works as i'd want05:06
god-zotachydrox24:: but on ubuntu, it seems to do nothing. i don't know if i need some kind of keybinding daemon to be running or if some other binding is already mapped to the XF86Audio*  that I am trying to use.05:07
hydrox24god-zotac: Well, that issue is strange indeed, what about trying a different WM (It probably wont' change it so fon05:07

matt-whizykotick9, pretty sure this is the issue since I tried it a while back but this terminal command isn't working. Googling now to figure out how to check if I'm blacklisted in the terminal06:00
f10ppiek0kbob37773: however, if you foremost carve the zip from the pcap and attempt to unzip it you endup with it saying there are more bytes than need to be06:00

f10ppiek0kleaving me with only the zip...i did notice a little bit after the file starts in the stream that all the packets are ~520 bytes....except for one that is 8406:01
matt-whizykotick9, I think you're right, though...because I did this check a couple of hours ago and it did say I was blacklisted...can't remember the terminal command though - !06:01
matt-whigordon1234, I have a wifi switch and it's on; the LED light has flashed also06:01

Canadian1296Okay, I have 32 bit desktop installed right now. Can I install 64 bit in virtualbox (if my computer is capable)?06:40
meskaruneactually ifconfig doesn't work perfectly with newer kernels, so its recomended that people switch to ip2route06:40
meskaruneno canadian129606:40
Canadian1296So I need 32?06:40
meskaruneyou need to have 64 installed to run 64 bit software06:41

meskaruneyou can only run 32 bit06:41
Canadian1296meskarune lotuspsychje urfr332gO: Thanks06:42
terminhellim sure there's ways of tricking a VM to running a 64bit on a 32 hardware, but i wouldnt try it.06:42
lotuspsychjeCanadian1296: to speed up your 32-bit you could consider an ssd 6g drive06:43
Canadian1296lotuspsychje: I'm going to install 64 bit OS.06:43
alnri trashed my /etc/apt/sources.list. how can I know safely what to put back. fwiw, /proc/version  says (gcc version 4.4.3 (Ubuntu 4.4.3-4ubuntu5) ) and /etc/debian_version says sid/wheezy06:44
bazhangalnr, #debian06:44
lotuspsychjeCanadian1296: like everyone says here only possible 64bit Os to a 64BIT CPU+MOBO06:44
nathan28lotuspsychje: not true06:44
alnrbazhang: thanks. started there but then maybe though this was ubuntu due to that /proc/version06:45
urfr332gOalnr, works nicely http://repogen.simplylinux.ch/06:45
nathan2832-bit will install to a 64-bit chip/board06:45
Canadian1296I'm going to see if it is 64 bit capable06:45
nathan28depends on the OEM's level of crankiness when they wrote the BIOS whether things work that way tho06:45
lotuspsychjenathan28: he wants the reverse...64 to 32bit06:45
Ben64Canadian1296: what model cpu?06:45
urfr332gOalnr, ubuntu though06:46
alnrurfr332gO: thanks, that looks great. jut now i'm not even sure, yes, what urf said06:46

lotuspsychjenathan28: if i want to install 32bit ubuntu on my amd64 it refuses too..06:46
nathan28lotuspsychje: like i said, depends on the BIOS implementation06:46
nathan28ubuntu's installer may also prevent it, don't know06:47
Canadian1296Ben64: How do I find out?06:47
alnrwhy would /proc/version be referriing to ubuntu like that on a debian system i'm wondering06:47

Canadian1296When you encrypt your home folder it suggests you write down a decryption passphrase. I'm just wondering, but if I ever forget my user password, how could I decrypt my home folder with it?07:26

ankur?08:05
madsjI haven't touched the aptitude source-file08:05
quazimod1its very buggy, unresponsive etc08:05
dRounseSuppa_Spic because you need MW3 support from wine and it isnt supported08:05
bobo37773ankur: yeah08:05
Suppa_Spicbobo37773: Because I thought Ubuntu was advanced enough to play my gaems08:05

Suppa_SpicCorey: where I can contact the wine folks08:06
bobo37773Suppa_Spic: it is a different operating system08:06
quazimod1if you don't mind paying you can use crossover08:06
Suppa_Spicbobo37773: yes, but people say 'oh you should use Ubuntu, is better than Windows'08:06
dRounseSuppa_Spic ubuntu is more advanced than windows, but windows doesnt like ubuntu08:06
eggzeckSuppa_Spic: Ummm not being able to play a game you like does not mean Ubuntu (or any other OS) is not advanced. Just FYI08:06
Suppa_Spicso I thought I could do anything08:06

Suppa_Spiche said 'Ubuntu is easy'08:09
bobo37773Suppa_Spic: pick between the game you want and the operating system. simple. weigh out the differences.08:09
urfr332gOsahil_, you can upgrade from the update manager.08:09
dRounseSuppa_Spic ok heres what to do, go get windows and reinstall it, you cant really play any new games on ubuntu08:09

bazhangsahil_, you dont upgrade with dist-upgrade, not between versions08:12
Suppa_Spicbazhang: I shouldn't ask questions about Ubuntu here?08:12
dRounseSuppa_Spic there are games for ubuntu, just not new games fresh off the press08:12
CoreySuppa_Spic: If gaming is your primary use case, this probably isn't the OS for you.08:12
bobo37773ankur: do you not know what software sources is?08:12
bazhangSuppa_Spic, not windows games, no08:12
terminhellSuppa_Spic:  because the game company's and windows specific coding....activex...08:12

bobo37773ankur: like this https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Repositories/Ubuntu08:13
ankurand thats how i stuck on installing alien08:13
bobo37773ankur: enable universe and do a sudo apt-get update and see if it is there08:14
Suppa_Spicwhat happened08:14
dRounseSuppa_Spic you will not be able to play MW3 on ubuntu anytime soon08:14
terminhellor use aptosid08:14
Suppa_Spicserver went down?08:14
mediaOK, how about this one:  What's a decent media-center application a la xbmc, available in the ubuntu repos?08:14
CoreySuppa_Spic: Enough of that line of questioning, please.08:14
Ben64ankur: try explaining your actual problem, you probably don't need alien for what you want to do08:14
bazhangankur, what package do you need08:14
Suppa_SpicdRounse: ok I got it, nvm08:14
dRounseSuppa_Spic i recommend using an xbox instead thats what i do08:14
ankurBobo37773 i read that page while googling08:15
dRounsemedia you could use boxee08:15
terminhellSuppa_Spic: its mostly because of software architecture differences and philosophies that software like games will render them unusable08:15
ankur?08:15
Suppa_SpicdRounse: I spent 2 grands in my computer to play08:15
Suppa_Spicnvm08:15
Suppa_Spiclet's move on08:15
terminhellSuppa_Spic: its like asking why doesnt mac play windows only games....08:15
bobo37773ankur: you see the part that talks about software sources08:15
bazhangankur, why would you need alien, for what package08:15
bobo37773good question08:15
kurratai want to know why windows doest play linuxgames ;(08:15

Suppa_SpicI was reading another line08:16
Suppa_Spicbazhang: ok08:16
ankurthen i googled08:17
ankurbazhang, i was unstalling the basic things like adobe, FF, vlc and when they didnt get installed using apt-get08:17
Suppa_SpicdRounse: problems with what?08:17
ankurand found that it requires08:17
ankuralien08:17
FloodBot1ankur: Please don't flood; use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste; don't use Enter as punctuation.08:17
ankuris there any other way to to that08:17
Ben64ankur: what is your goal though?08:17
bazhangankur, you do NOT need alien for those08:17
llutz_ankur: none of those things need alien08:17
dRounseSuppa_Spic drivers, especially if they are new because the drivers might not be available08:17
ankurto run wi-fi08:17
Suppa_Spicoh ok08:17
bazhangankur, none of those08:17
ankurok FloofBot will try08:17
bobo37773ankur: your talking to a bot.08:18
Suppa_Spiclol08:18
bazhangankur, always use the software centre to install packages.08:18
bobo37773ankur: you need to enable the correct repositories and update08:18
ankurno, the main motive is to run wi- fi, rest of the things van be delayed08:18
dRounseSuppa_Spic like the disk that comes with devices contains the drivers but since they arent compatable with linux, you might not be able to use them properly or you will need to use the open cource drivers08:18
bobo37773ankur: so your wifi card isn't working?08:19
Suppa_SpicdRounse: oh ok, I don't know but after I installed Ubento everything worked fine08:19
ankurit detects the card realteck corp08:19
bobo37773ankur: but it doesn't work?08:19
dRounseSuppa_Spic have you played a game yet? or tried to watch a movie ?08:19
vuxoris there any gnome program like Kover on KDE?08:19
bazhangvuxor, what does it do08:20
Suppa_SpicdRounse: yes, in youtube and facebook games08:20
bobo37773vuxor: what does it do08:20
ankuryes, it does not show the name of wifi at the top08:20
bobo37773jinx08:20
dRounseSuppa_Spic well those arent really graphic heavy08:20
dRounsebut you mighnot have problems08:20
ankuri have to use Lan , then it works fine08:20
dRounsebut i gotta go08:20
vuxorit is CD cover printer08:20
bobo37773ankur: when is the last time you updated your system?08:20
dRounsevuxor do you want it on KDE or gnome?08:21
ankuri havn't08:21
Ben64vuxor: you can use kde applications in gnome08:21
bobo37773ankur: Is this a new install?08:21
ankurso i guess this is the main solution08:21
terminhellankur:  if you go into your network settings, under wifi, is it listed there? You may have to enable it for "all users"08:21
Suppa_Spiccan somebody explain why I was like kicked out of the channel moments ago?08:21
eggzeckankur: I have found that some times I've had that issue. All I did was enter information manually and rebooted then (for some odd reason) it started connection and working properly (reading/seeing other WiFi networks)08:21
ankuryes, about a week ago08:21
Suppa_SpicI am new to this IRC thing08:21
ankurno terminhell its not listed there08:21
vuxordRounse: on gnome08:21
bazhangSuppa_Spic, join #ubuntu-ops08:22
bobo37773ankur: why not use 10.04 or something a little more recent?08:22
Suppa_Spicbazhang: what is that?08:22
dRounsevuxor just use Kover, itll work fine08:22
ankureggzeck, even i tried that but it didnt worked08:22
bazhangSuppa_Spic, to discuss your removal from this channel08:22
ankurhow can i update my system08:22
Ben64ankur: what version of ubuntu?08:22
vuxorBen64: i use Kover for now, but I was wandering if there is any gnome solution08:22
terminhellankur:  sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade08:22
terminhell...or just use the update manager08:23
ankurBen6408:23
ankuri am having 9.10 verison08:23
Ben64ankur: you need to upgrade08:23
dRounsevuxor in the software center type in kover maybe other ones will pop up08:24
Ben649.10 stopped being supported in April 2011, i believe08:24
bobo37773ankur: open a terminal and type this exactly -->      sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade             <-- just like terminhell said08:24
ankuryes, i did that08:24
Suppa_Spicwhat's the best editor for Ubuntu08:24
Suppa_Spic?08:24
Suppa_Spiclike notepad08:24
eggzeckvi08:24
bobo37773ankur: should be updating right?08:24
dRounseSuppa_Spic gedit08:24
dRounsedont use vi08:24
ankurfew errors are displayed as "404 not found", is it ok with that08:24
bobo37773Suppa_Spic: vim08:24
Suppa_Spicummmh08:25
dRounseeggzeck youre trying to mess him up lol08:25
eggzeckdRounse: And why not use vi?08:25
Ben64ankur: no, you need to upgrade ubuntu versions08:25
eggzecklol08:25
Suppa_Spicwhich one is the best of those 3?08:25
dRounseeggzeck hes brandnew and wants something like notepad08:25
vuxordRounse: just Kover and Kover designer, or smnthng08:25
dRounsevuxor yea08:25
ankuryou mean download the 11.10 and then again isntall it08:25
dRounseKover08:25
terminhellankur: is your /home in a seperate partition?08:25
Ben64ankur: that would be the cleanest way08:26
bobo37773dRounse: I wish someone would have told me to use vim in the beginning. In my opinoin it is the best. Of course that is subjective08:26
dRounseSuppa_Spic gedit is your best bet and its already installed08:26
ankurterminhell: yes08:26
eggzeckbobo37773: I'm with you, don't worry ;-)08:26
terminhellbobo37773: i prefer nano.08:26
dRounsebobo37773 i like it too but not for a beginner08:26
ankurBen: okk iwill do that08:26
bobo37773terminhell: really? well to each their own08:26
dRounsebobo37773 who wants notepad08:26
CharminTheMooseMy /etc/issue changes aren't being read, what did I goof up?08:26
Suppa_SpicdRounse: oh okay, thanks08:26
ankurcan i install the new version above the current verison08:26
terminhellankur: then just install the newest ubuntu, and chose your current /home as your "new" home08:27
bobo37773dRounse: oh didn't know he said notepad nevermind08:27
vuxoru mean on Gvim?08:27
dRounseSuppa_Spic no problem08:27
terminhellankur: but you'll have to do the manual install, not the guided08:27
eggzeckdRounse: Well actually nano would be easier to use than vi (vim) would be08:27
ankurhmm, okay i can do that.08:27
ankurthank u guys08:27
dRounsebobo37773 he install ubuntu thinking he could play the brand new call of duty lets just set him up with the easy stuff08:27
dRounseactually Suppa_Spic you should use Linux Mint instead of Ubuntu08:28
Suppa_SpicdRounse: Why?08:28
hmwIs it just me, or did the recent Firefox update bring a lot of bugs? The browser crashed a lot of times while I was developing a JavaScript program, Google suddenly shows a totally empty page except for the search bar, and other minor annoyances.08:28
terminhellit ships with more codecs out of the box08:28
dRounseSuppa_Spic more user friendly, its based on ubuntu08:28
terminhellthe non free ones like flash/java08:28
eggzeckhmw: Not sure, I use chromium08:28
Ben64dRounse: this is a ubuntu channel, not mint08:28
bobo37773dRounse: all in all though gedit is a pretty good editor. probably my favorite gui editor. I have not tried sublime yet though. yeah I am half convinced that this person is just messing with us anyways08:28
furieni hate ubuntu08:29
terminhellbobo37773:  try leafpad too, pretty quick in a gui08:29
eggzeckFurai: Why?08:29
dRounseBen64 i know im helping someone out that is new, plus mint was a fork of ubuntu08:29
eggzeckoops wrong name tabbed, he quit.08:29
eggzecksorry Furai08:29
yodaboy22Noob question: can you customize colors in Unity desktop?08:29
yodaboy22i have ubuntu 11.1008:29
jawshrHey folks, just did a new install of 11.10 on my netbook. During install all the netbook hardware worked fine, but now when I boot into it wifi, touchpad and sound no worky. Any suggestions??08:29
terminhellwhat kind of colors?08:30
bobo37773terminhell: I have tried it. Too minimalistic for me. My next one to try is sublime if I try a new one.08:30
dRounsebobo37773 i like it too lol08:30
Suppa_SpicOK im gonna try Mint08:30
Suppa_Spicthanks08:30
Axsuulwhen I put a public key in authorized_keys, do I need to have the ssh-rsa part?08:30
yodaboy22terminhell: I want the customization that GNOME debian offers08:30
CoreySuppa_Spic: Good luck, have fun.08:30
yodaboy22like, change the colors of the windows08:30
yodaboy22and the text08:30
yodaboy22and all that jazz08:30
eggzeckOh no, poor kid doesn't know what to do08:30
aBoundyodaboy22, Debian uses an older version of Gnome 2 which eventually will stop development.08:30
terminhellyodaboy22: install gnome-shell and gnome-tweak-tool08:30
Coreyeggzeck: Keep it friendly, plz. :-)08:30
dRounseSuppa_Spic in the terminal type in "sudo apt-get install unetbootin -y"08:31
yodaboy22terminhell: i'll try that otu08:31
bazhangdRounse, dont recommend MINT here. this is Ubuntu support thanks08:31
eggzeckCorey: Uhhh, huh? How am I not being friendly?08:31
Suppa_SpicdRounse: what's that for08:31
terminhellyodaboy22: gnome-shell is a bit different than Unity though. be warned08:31
Coreyeggzeck: Sorry, interpreted that as snarky sarcasm. :-)08:31
dRounseSuppa_Spic to install mint08:31
Suppa_Spicalright~08:31
yodaboy22terminhell: I'll do my research on it08:31
bazhangdRounse, please dont08:31
CoreySuppa_Spic: Although #mint is where support for that goes.08:31
dRounsereally guys? im helping someone out08:31
eggzeckCorey: No worries :-) (I'm not much for sarcasm but I do understand how you misinterpreted that)08:32
CoreyOr not.  Apparently there's not a #mint here.08:32
Suppa_SpicCorey: oh ok08:32
bobo37773yodaboy22: I think the newest ubuntu is introducing those features (to change colors at least). thats what I heard08:32
terminhellyodaboy22: OR if you really are after serious customization, check out archlinux ;)08:32
Suppa_SpicCorey: What?08:32
Suppa_Spicno mint?08:32
bazhangdRounse, its not a supported derivative, so yes.08:32
CoreySuppa_Spic: Not sure where their support forum is.08:32
bobo37773terminhell: say what?08:32
CoreyAh,  #linuxmint-help on irc.spotchat.org08:32
dRounsebazhang hes brand newhe doesnt know how to use the irc let me explain so he can be on his way08:32

terminhellbobo37773: overkill i know, but i cant help but shamelessly plug my distro from time to time08:33
bazhang!mintsupport | dRounse Suppa_Spic08:33
ubottudRounse Suppa_Spic: Linux Mint is not a supported derivative of Ubuntu. Please seek support in #linuxmint-help on irc.spotchat.org08:33
dRounsebazhang i know its not supported08:33
bobo37773terminhell: I'm just kidding. I will only ever run arch again probably08:33
bazhangdRounse, then please dont recommend it here, thanks.08:33
jawshrEverything worked during install (wifi etc) but no hardware is found08:33
dRounsebazhang he cant even run ubuntu where else am i supposed to recommend08:34
bobo37773terminhell: we better be quiet though or we will get in trouble. too offtopic08:34
dRounsebobo37773 youll get yelled at for talking about other distros like me08:35
terminhellbobo37773: indeed08:35
bobo37773dRounse: yep. terminhell uhhh huh08:35
dRounsewhere is the linux family? obvi ubuntu is racist against other flavors08:36
terminhellto jawshr's problem with wifi08:36
llutz_dRounse: ##linux for that08:36
eggzeckdRounse: That's not racism lol08:36
jawshrthanks08:36
bobo37773dRounse: just dont go to #linux cause they hate all distro lovers there08:36
dRounseeggzeck sure it is :)08:36
jawshrI think my drivers may be all blacklisted?08:36
terminhellthe live cd ships with more device drivers than the installer gives08:37
eggzeckdRounse: Oh, I didn't realize Ubuntu was a race (or any other distro) :-)08:37
dRounsebobo37773 i know lol we should start our own channel08:37
dRounseeggzeck it is lol see you learn something new everyday08:37

pnormanMy /boot is 94% full. (81/92 MB). Is there anything I can do to clear up space?08:57

eggzeckchachin: nano is not so hard to use. When you start nano there's shortcuts and information displayed at the bottom09:19
terminhellbut to answer your question, you would just type 'nano unrealircd.conf'09:19
terminhellthe "  ^  " is the ctrl key09:19
bobo37773chachin: when you load nano all of the options are at the bottom. usually to open a program with another one the default is almost always -->    program /path/to/file09:20

damo22Jordan_U, the only difference between using dd and dd_rescue is that it will jump ahead when it cant read some sectors10:08

=== Guest86828 is now known as greenberet
Jordan_Udamo22: That may be true of dd_rescue (I don't know much about dd_rescue) but GNU ddrescue is an entirely different (and much better) program which does much more than that. (logging, returning to bad sectors *after a full pass* and trying reads of smaller block sizes, etc).,10:10

neil1Dani, Its a Radeon card I think.  Processor is AMD dual core graphics.  Make sense?13:06
danileigh79Neil, sounds like driver not supported... may need to reinstall Win, then do side by side Ubuntu install13:07
NyLesneil1, i think we have the same problem but mine has something to do with the drivers, i hope danileigh79 can help me too :(13:07

mgolischneil1: no meant that vga option, like teling it to use a different resolution13:20
danileigh79NyLes: try the link I sent to neil113:20
mgolischneil1: but its probably a problem with x11 , if your screen gets blank it probably does something wrong talking to the card when x11 starts13:20
UrBI guess there is no shorcut to this one - I must learn to understand the hcidump output :)13:21
NyLesdanileigh79, mine is different, I have an old video card that has bugs with latest drivers..13:21

n2diyhow do you square a number in gnumeric?13:22
chidusually with the second part (when control is still pressed it sends just a pg up rather than ctrl+pg up hotkey)13:22
chidn2diy: either ** or ^ or pow13:23
n2diychid, thanks, what's pow?13:23
NyLesdanileigh79 - now I can try Live CD because of the nomodeset.. without it, its just a black screen..13:23
chidpower(x,y) = x^y13:23
chidAlso, I'm wondering how I could bind a hotkey for switching a window to another monitor13:24
NyLesdanileigh79 - bazhang told me to try additional drivers under system but it says no proprietary drivers are in use..13:24
danileigh79NyLes: Are you trying this in a clean install of 11.10?13:24
mgolischthe card is probably too old to be supported by the nvidia drivers included in ubuntu13:24
danileigh79NyLes: the card is too old13:25
mgolischgeforce 2 mx400 that must be almost 10 years old or so :)13:25
n2diychid, ok, ^ worked.13:25
danileigh79mgolisch: older...13:25

=== enrique is now known as Guest73166
NyLesdanileigh79, mgolisch - so there's no way I can get this to work? yeah the card is too old I am aware of it..13:26
mgolischNyLes: install an older version of ubuntu or try to get it working using the nv driver13:26
NyLesyeats, I'm using 10.10 right now, i'll try your suggestion, I hope it works..13:27
yeatsNyLes: I had a similar dilemma recently with an older ATI card - upgrading the card was the only solution13:27
NyLesmgolisch how would I do that?13:27
danileigh79NyLes: Install 10.04, once in 10.04. try upgrading the driver, then try upgrading to 10.10, then 11.04, if the issue occurs again, it simply means your card is not supported in 11.1013:27
NyLesyeats - oh :( but I can't just  buy a latest card because my monitor have different pins,,13:27
NyLesits from Sony13:27
mgolischNyLes: different pins?13:28
danileigh79Sorry if I don't make a lot of sense right now, still n my first cup of coffee13:28
danileigh79mgolisch: Sony uses proprietary connectors on some of their older monitors13:29
BiscuitBurpNyLes: What sony are you using?  Model13:29
NyLesdanileigh79 ok ill try that but now I'm using 10.10 and its already not supported :(13:29
chidis there a hotkey for switching a window to another monitor?13:29
danileigh79NyLes: then may have to roll back even further to 10.0413:30
NyLesmgolisch its not like the usual ones..13:30

Ben64nvidia-96 - NVIDIA binary Xorg driver, kernel module and VDPAU library13:31
danileigh79Ben64: Yes, but support for them doesn't always occur in new releases of Ubuntu13:31
NyLesdanileigh79 can I just use the terminal to download and install the older driver? o13:32
mgolischNyLes: the nvidia-96 should support the mx40013:33
NyLesmgolisch can I do it even on the latest Ubuntu?13:33
danileigh79NyLes: you got me, I've never tried to rollback a graphics driver, considering my laptop has current graohics technology13:34
mgolischNyLes: 10.10 still has it, not idea about newer versions13:34

randomnewbHow do I properly extract zip files with foriegn character encoding?13:40
mgolischcan you select an older version in the driver thing?13:40
NyLesmgolisch I will download first 10.04 as the support is extended till next year13:40
NyLesmgolisch what do you mean?13:41
mgolischi can select between different versions of the nvidia driver in that driver thing13:42
intokdanileigh79 it's still semi ubuntu related, maybe a repo maintainer is reading and will swap the crap emulators that are currently in the repos for something that is more usable13:42
NyLesmgolisch I thought what you're pertaining to is when booting lol.. what is that driver thing?13:42
yeatsNyLes: mgolisch: "driver thing" = "Additional Drivers" aka jockey-gtk13:43
danileigh79intok, go to zophar.net look for emulators for unix/linux on right... now, stfu about emulatord13:43
bazhangdanileigh79, never say that here.13:43
mgolischtheres a cmdline version too that you could probably use from ssh in your installed ubuntu13:44
NyLesyeats thanks for that lol.. mgolisch I can only boot when nomodeset is on.. when I tried Additional Drivers it says "no Proprietary driver is in use"13:44

bazhanghttp://askubuntu.com/questions/33655/best-nes-emulator intok13:46
mgolischNyLes: it probably fails to detect the card then if it doenst allow you to select a driver there13:46
bazhangdanileigh79, and it's perfectly on topic here to ask about apps13:46
mgolischyou can just install it using apt and change your xorg.conf to use the nvidia driver13:46
danileigh79bazhang: I've been kicked for asking about cross platform apps13:46
oiyouhi, trying to ping my ubuntu from windows, on my lan, and it works for like 5min and then doesnt for 5min and goes through this loop of on and off. I have checked, when i cant, both machine still have connection. any ideias where the prob is?13:46
NyLesmgolisch I think so.. how would I do that? can i do that even in nomodeset option?13:47
NyLesmgolisch  i think nomodeset option has something to do why additional driver doesn't detect my card13:47

rlyikonia: what is?15:24
rlyiceroot: what are acceptable number for a laptop harddisk of 3 years old?15:24
mneptokrly: if all disks seeks are problematic, ensure your drive isn't failing and backup important files. then try booting to an older kernel to see if a kernel update introduced a new drive controller driver that may be the cause.15:24

=== Shadows` is now known as SoulShadow

BonerKingubottu, how can I cofigure Ubuntu to make me fresh coffee every time I get up16:11
ubottuBonerKing: I am only a bot, please don't think I'm intelligent :)16:11
Croonmneptok there shouldnt be16:11
bsilwalDeos applying recursive chmod will apply same permissions to the new folders created?16:12
theadminwunnle: Try changing the language to something other than "English (US)" (say, "English (UK)" or "English (Canada)"). I'm not so sure though.16:12
mneptokCroon: is this a remote host you pay for? or a community box? or what?16:12
wunnletheadmin, actually i googled it but i don't know anything about locale (file?)16:12
mneptokCroon: because the errors you see are about connecting via HTTP to the Ubuntu mirrors.16:12
theadminmneptok: (s)he's trying to upgrade from Karmic (EOL)16:12
sacarlsonBonerKing: you need some X10 modules and  a usb or other unit to drive them from ubuntu16:13
Croonmnekits mine16:13
theadminmneptok: (if that's of any help)16:13
Croonargh16:13
bsilwalHow do i set permission to a directory, so that new folders created by webserver will have same permission?16:13
Croonmneptok its mine16:13
sacarlsonBonerKing: they will also turn your lights on and off at times you desire16:13
sungsamI know, you are busy, but I'll repeat myself:16:14
sungsamok, guys, so I asked you about my ext2 error, because I was freaking out, that I've been hacked, giving this example: http://whitestar.linuxbox.org/pipermail/exploits/2006-November/000006.html16:14
wunnletheadmin, now i've changed system language to english (not us) but calendar is still the same.16:14
sungsambut if as a ubuntu user, we were hacked, how can we tell? What'd be the first clue?16:14
mneptokCroon: hold on ...16:14
theadminwunnle: Try logging out and back in after doing so16:14
wunnletheadmin, ok, let me try.16:15
sacarlsonsungsam: I"ve seen attempted hacks in my logs of ssh activity16:15
sungsamHow could you tell, it was an attempted hack?16:16
mneptokCroon: OK, Karmic Koala reached EOL in April 2011.16:16
sacarlsonsungsam: after attacks were easy to see when my web index page changed and again looked at the apache2 logs to see where they had gone16:16
mneptokCroon: the repos to update it are gone.16:16
mneptokCroon: that's why you get errors about not being able to find them16:16
Croonmneptok ah okay ... then what are my options?16:16
sacarlsonsungsam: attempted I see many failed logins16:17
korukorbsilwal: umask16:17
sungsamsacarlson, sounds logic. I was more curious about a private system.16:17
=== denny_ is now known as Guest38625
wunnletheadmin, thanks, it worked.16:17
bsilwalcheers16:17
theadminwunnle: Yay! :) Actually, that was a totally random guess lol16:17
CharminTheMooseHow necessary are the /lib/modules/<version>/kernel/drivers/char/agp and /lib/modules/<version>/kernel/drivers/gpu for displaying boot splash screens? Can't vesa/vga16fb be used instead?16:17
sungsamsacarlson or anybody, how secure is UFW?16:17
sacarlsonsungsam: mine is private but it's very dependent one what ports and programs you have active16:17
erasehi, installed Google Earth 6.2 on 11.10. It crashes right after the splash screen. help!16:18
mneptokCroon: is the system broken in some way? does it mostly work for now?16:18
wunnletheadmin, well do you have any other lucky guesses about google calendar sync?16:18
sungsamsacarlson, when I nmap my LAN it always states all 1000 ports are closed.16:18
wunnle:16:18
sacarlsonsungsam:  netstat -pant will tell what is listening16:18
Croonmneit works cept for one part, not importen for the system i think16:19
Croongrrr16:19
reberhi there. How to avoid weird chars like this : myfile_�.odt ?16:19
sacarlsonsungsam: and to be open is normaly something you must add unless pnp is active on your router then I guess anything is posible16:19
mneptokCroon: the next release in April is an LTS release. limp along, and plan for a reinstall while you wait for 12.04 to drop.16:19
Croonmneptok works cept for one part, not importen for the system i think16:19
mneptokCroon: that's what i'd do, being lazy.16:19
Croonokay16:20
Croonlike me :D16:20
Croonbut then16:20
mneptokCroon: you have 2 months to prep for a reinstall.16:20
Crooni cold do it now, nothing lost if done now16:21
sacarlsonsungsam: and by the way there are about 65000 different ports as I recall16:21
mneptokCroon: LTS releases are supported for 5 years on servers. you'll have until this time in 2017 to get updates.16:21
cloudgeekhow deploy django16:21
cloudgeekwith ubuntu server16:21
cloudgeeknow right i just forword my 192.168.1.2:8000 to my static ip16:22
sungsamholly crap, I have and established connection with some weired Bulgarian ip!!16:22
mneptokCroon: and why go through installing an LTS that's still 2 months from release? might be buggy, updates every dau will kill you.16:22
mneptok*day16:22
sungsamin whois it says role LIR ADMIN. What deos it mean?16:22
lenagea16:22
sungsamhow can I disconnect it?16:22
danikhello guys Ive some questions that are not so technical i just cant really find answear of my questions can i pm one of u to ask u ?16:23
theadminwunnle: Nope sorry :D16:23
sacarlsonsungsam: you sure it isn't part of your irc connections?  it should also state what app is it connected to16:23
Silverliondanik, just ask away here in the chan16:24
CharminTheMooseHow necessary are the /lib/modules/<version>/kernel/drivers/char/agp and /lib/modules/<version>/kernel/drivers/gpu for displaying boot splash screens? Can't vesa/vga16fb be used instead?16:24
sungsamphew, yes it is, sorry for the panic, I couldn't see it the first time, cause it rolled the line....16:24
danikok i want to use iptable ( with that you can disable some ports and ips as far as i learned ) but when u can disable one ip to not connect to ur server that u know that ip is a attacker i mean when its late so what does iptable really do ?16:25
milen8204hello all, how can I make to start bash script when Lubuntu starts ?16:26
korukordanik: use ufw16:26
erasehi, installed Google Earth 6.2 on 11.10. It crashes right after the splash screen. help!16:27
sungsamdanik, it'd be useless, because an attacker, can change ip as easy as his MAC address. Yes, use UFW.16:27
Silverliondanik there is a private message with a link for you waiting ;)16:27
BlouBloudanik: If you want a gui for ufw, install gufw16:27
sacarlsondanik: it does a drop or whatever you ask of the iptables action filter to do.  if you want more details try #iptables16:27
___MAXHi, i try to ssh my ubuntu 1010 server but the connection is refused on port22, i remove apparmor  but no luck16:28
sacarlson___MAX: is you router set to forwart port 2216:29
daniksacarlson if i have a linux which just provide apache for a website do i still need iptables ? i mean should i close other ports ?16:29
___MAXsacalson: vm image16:29
daniksungsam thx dude16:29
___MAXsacarlson: it's VM16:30
uni4dfxWhy didn't anyone tell me that installing Linux without a swap partition is an extremely bad idea? :P16:30
sacarlsondanik: only time you need iptables filters is if you want some in and others out.  if all out just close the listiner app16:30
rumpe1uni4dfx, depends. i never use swap and have no problem with it.16:30
___MAXsacarlson: any other suggestion !16:31
goodtimehahaha i know someone who somehow uses google maps to remotely crack into other peoples machines16:31
