cowslammerlint it's a broadcom00:01
Canadian1296Anyone?00:01
ztag100pxc: I haven't found a solution to fix it00:01
ztag100pxc: I really just wanted to give mint a spin... but it isn't proving worth it00:02
Lintcowslammer, there should be a package with a firmware for your model00:02

cowslammerlint where do i get that pckage?00:02
blueskin...ah, that's for X, not the command line. no use in my situation.00:03
cowslammercfhowlett, yes00:03
ztag100and mint's black boot doesn't let me see what's going on00:03
cfhowlettcowslammer   see this first https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WifiDocs/Driver/bcm43xx00:03
Canadian1296_Marcus: Yes, I am up to that point in the guide, and I've follwed it to the letter. The folder exists but it is empty. There should be a file called smtpd.conf in it00:03
ztag100I'm gonna try mint on one of my more powerful machines latter00:03
pxcztag100, have you tried editing the grub command line before boot, so that you can see what's happening?00:03
ztag100pxc: no how can I do that?00:04
pxcztag100, just remove the ‘quiet’ and ‘splash’ parameters from the kernel line on boot. I don't remember the keyboard combination to edit the command line on grub, but it tells you on the screen00:04
_MarcusCanadian1296: No idea then00:04

theunsureguyrandom question - but anybody here know of a good java related channel?00:06
ztag100theunsureguy: #java ?00:07
blueskinhmm, I'm really surprised nobody else has had this problem, ah well.00:07
blueskinnight00:07
pxcblueskin: you can use ‘kernel modesetting’ to change the resolution of your screen before X / without X starting up. That article talks about KMS in the VirtualBox guest additions (virtual host drivers)00:07
Nach0ztheunsureguy: ##java, or #java on quakenet. searchIRC.com has really good answers00:07

ztag100pxc: Thanks00:07
pxcblueskin, that's fine. There are two ways to change it. You can set the resolution in the grub command line, or you can change it use KMS00:07
kazekageyou welcome00:07
ztag100How can I permenantly edit the boot?00:07

pxcblueskin: here's the debian wiki on the subject (setting it up)00:10

ztag100hopefully, I can test out mint and see how I like it00:10
blueskinok, what do I put in grub?00:11
pxcztag100, all you needed to change was the $GRUB_CMDLINE_DEFAULT, right?00:11
ztag100I think so00:11
pxcblueskin, there's a section that is headed by the comment ‘the resolution used on graphical terminal’ in my /etc/default/grub. Is that in yours?00:11
memikem /msg NickServ identify00:12
ztag100all I did was remove quiet splash from the quotes00:12
pxcthe $GRUB_GFXMODE variable determines what resolution the VCs are00:12

pxcztag100, by which you mean you deleted those words from the string?00:12
ztag100yes00:12
ztag100not the whole line00:13
roastedQuestion - with /home on a separate partition, what are good "defaults" to have? 0 2?00:13
ztag100just those words00:13
blueskinok, changed that to 1280x102400:13
pxcztag100, there's one more thing you'll have to do on Mint, which is call /sbin/grub-mkconfig to generate a new /boot/grub/grub.cfg from your /etc/default/grub file00:14
ztag100how do I do that?00:14
pxc‘sudo grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg’ should do it. running ‘sudo update-grub’ should call that automatically, as well as doing other stuff that is probably a waste of time00:14
pxcbut either command should be safe and effective00:15

theadminpxc: Most of Ubuntu stuff is on upstart nowadays, except third-party packages that is00:28

cowslammercfhowlett, ok i checked that link and i don't find anything for my network card although lspci says it's supported00:29
theadminpxc: It does include lightdm (again, all of Ubuntu's official stuff uses Upstart. Only third-party packages don't). But the basic command which will work anywhere is something like this: sudo /etc/init.d/*dm stop00:29

gkaklaszizoo, try running the program "pm-hibernate" with sudo from a terminal01:14
David_BurkhardtI then went to my windows comp, downloaded it and sent it to a zip drive and tried to install from there, no luck01:14
cfhowlettJohn did you checksum the iso?01:15

zizooAh, well no, sorry. It's zizoo (the "oo" is like in "boo"), and it's a nonsense nickname I came up with. Makes sense that it would be close to something in another language. Where are you from, ztag100, if I may?01:15

zizoogkaklas: My system crashed while trying to start up after using pm-hibernate. It seems to also be powered by s2disk (it showed a terminal-style output of its behavior telling me things like "s2disk saving state ...").01:25
JBeezyyes01:25
chown_guys, im tying to start using ubuntu. but i also would like to have a windows so i could boot into it if i needed. i have 2 250GB hds, what would be better install each one into 1 different hd, or partition both into the same hd?01:26
gkaklasDavid_Burkhardt, try booting from a livecd. Mount the partition where ubuntu is ("sudo mount /dev/sd?? /media/somewhere"), chroot the mounted drive ("sudo chroot /media/somewhere") and try "sudo apt-get update ; sudo apt-get upgrade ; sudo apt-get dist-upgrade" and reboot normally. If you get any errors try "sudo dpkg --configure -a". Not sure if it will work though...01:27
urfr332gOchown_, no better really, it is a matter of understanding the bootloaders and the mbr.01:27
Dr_willischown_,  depends on your space needs.  Id just put each os on its own HD.  and the grub on the ubuntu mbr01:28
JBeezy'rfkill bluetooth' ?01:28
David_Burkhardtcan't get into a terminal.  Is there any way to do it from boot up without admin password?01:28

JBeezy'no...file of directory'01:29
zizooSo zizo, is Ziad an Arabic name then, if you are from Egypt? And is it pronounced "Zee-odd" or "Zh+odd" (where "zh" is to "z" as "sh" is to "s").01:29
bobo37773JBeezy: hmm can ubuntu on the phone use wireless?01:30
JBeezyit can use wifi01:30
David_BurkhardtCan I get to a terminal from boot up without admin password?01:30
zizooOh well. Anyways, any tips on why s2disk would cause my computer to crash  while loading a saved session?01:30
BeTaMaXSorry, I can't help you.01:31
Dr_willisDavid_Burkhardt,  theres grub rescue/recovery options. so yes - or you can have init start up bash.01:31

BeTaMaXI'm a linux rookie user01:31
bobo37773JBeezy: it has like a networkmanager that can see wifi networks or its bridged?01:31
gkaklaszizoo, does the output confirm that the state was saved? you say the computer crashes on resume, do you get any errors or just a blank screen?01:31

gkaklasDavid_Burkhardt, you need to boot from a livecd to run an admin terminal. From there use "chmod" like described before. Then, every command you execute will be run like when you run it normally from your installation.01:33
JBeezymy only dang goal is to have my laptop connect to phone like network folder so I can sync my microsoft onenotes over bluetooth01:33

adamuspls?01:34
David_BurkhardtI'll try that. C n I make one from a window based computer, or do I need a linux one?01:34
Dr_willisDavid_Burkhardt,  you are not booting from a bootable  device then. You should reinstall grub from a live cd. if your sustem is broken.01:35
gkaklaszizoo, seems like the configuration needs to be modified - i don't know how to do it. Here is the manpage of a2disk http://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/maverick/man8/s2disk.8.html01:35

delinquentmelike if im getting this error: Bundler::PathError: Could not install to path `Jemfile` because of an invalid symlink. Remove the symlink so the directory can be created.       .. this means that I need to hack something out of a system process right?02:20
damo22bobo37773, the booting process works, and the kernel initialises, but i think there is a conflict with certain drivers that are built into the kernel, as there are no modules02:21
bobo37773damo22: You are building a huge generic kernel? Or one just for your hardware?02:22

quantumlemurDr_willis, there was some change to the system bell production method... I was never able to get the gnome system beep to work out of the box, and had to edit my pulseaudio config to add in the bell sound02:37

platsany sugest ? should i reisntal ?02:39
xjiujiuHi guys.02:39
quantumlemurDr_willis, I did have to add that pactl line to my pulseaudio config in order to get it to work, but that site makes me wonder if I can put the "xset b 100" directly into the same place02:39
Dr_willis99% of all the hits i google for xset b  -> are about how to turn off that beep. :)02:39
xjiujiuI have a big problem.I just update my ubuntu11.10 system.But,when I reboot the system the password box is missing in the login step.02:39
UbuntunubStupid question -- installing Ubuntu server for the first time.  During the install process I'm getting a "No root file system" error and directions to correct it in the partitioning menu.  Only one problem... can't find that menu.  :D02:40
DonaldShimodaany steps to recover ati drivers after upgrading to kernel 3.2?02:40
metasansanaplats: http://kb.mozillazine.org/Firefox_hangs02:40
xjiujiuAnyone meet this problem before?02:40
metasansanaplats: I think it may be add-ons02:40
Dr_willisUbuntunub,  you told it what partion to use for the / partition?02:40
Dr_willisDonaldShimoda,  using a custom kernel?02:41
DonaldShimodayes, one builded from the source ode downloaded from kernel.org + make oldconfig02:41
metasansanaFirefox has really dropped in quality lately02:41
DonaldShimodaDr_willis, kernel work fine, but ati drivers dont02:42
Dr_willisDonaldShimoda,  so you ARE using a kernel not from the default repos?02:42
platswew thanks..<metasansana>02:42
DonaldShimodaDr_willis, yes, in using a kernel not from the default repos, becaus im using 10.04 LTS and tehres not kernel 3.2 for this ubuntui flavor02:43
Dr_willisDonaldShimoda,  you try installing the drivers using the ati whateveritsacallled.run installer from the ati web site?02:43
UbuntunubDr_willis: It never asked me yet.  On the main install menu, I see "Partion Disks" as an option.  Selecting that gives me:  Configure iSCSI volumes, Undo changes to partitions, and Finish partitioning and write changes to disk.  Last option gives me the "no root" error.02:43
metasansanaplats try running with a fresh profile no add ons etc and see how it goes02:43
=== log is now known as stroopwafel
DonaldShimodaDr_willis, noyt yet, i wonder if theres any polite way to do this02:43
platsoke .. thanks by the way02:43
plats<== now working..02:43
DonaldShimodaDr_willis, before try ATI way...02:43
Dr_willisUbuntunub,  id use a gparted live cd and partion the disks how you want. it almost sounds like its not see ing your hard drives however.02:43
metasansanaplats no problem02:43
Dr_willisDonaldShimoda,  once you go the custome kernel route.. its all on your shoulders.02:44
DonaldShimodaDr_willis, ok, but theres a fglrx source package in the repos, theres no way to compile this one?02:44
Dr_willisDonaldShimoda,  thers some scripts/tools out i recall to build your own .deb from those .run installers.. i saw them mentioned on the askubuntu.com site. but i dont use the old releases02:44
Dr_willisDonaldShimoda,  if using such a new kernel. you most likely want to use the newest drivers.. but  that may also require the latest X... so.. well.. it may get nasty.02:45
DonaldShimodaDr_willis, im just using LTS because i heat unity,gnome_shell, gnome-fallback... really , i cannot stand them...02:45
UbuntunubDr_willis:  Looks that way.  Doing a "Detect Disks" function states it can't find any and directs me to select a driver.  They're just average WD 80gb SATA's.  On board RAID sees them fine.  Same with Bios.02:45
Dr_willisDonaldShimoda,  theres alwyas lubuntu.02:45
hectoritzshell estas en linea02:45
DonaldShimodaDr_willis, yes, i must try lubuntu, anyway im waiting a LTS release02:46
Dr_willisUbuntunub,  the fact they are on a Raid controller may be the whole issue.02:46
DonaldShimodaDr_willis, when is out i will try it02:46
Dr_willisDonaldShimoda,  i think you will have a long wait.. - as far as i know  the variants dont do 'lts' releases. like that.02:46
Dr_willisI dont bother limiting myself to LTS :)02:46
Dr_willis11.10 Lubuntu - is very nicely done.02:46
DonaldShimodaDr_willis, 12.04 will be LTS02:46
Dr_willisDonaldShimoda,  but its not a 'Lubuntu LTS'02:47
DonaldShimodaDr_willis, i try the beta it s*cks02:47
quantumlemurDr_willis, yes, I haven't been able to find any mentions of the problem, either.  The archwiki taught me how to turn the bell on, but nobody seems to know where to put xset that I can find02:47
DonaldShimodaDr_willis, i see02:47
dlentzDonaldShimoda, if you installed the ati driver with dkms, then the fglrx module should have built automatically with new kernel02:47
UbuntunubDr_Willis, is there an easy solution to that?....  This system is only a few years old.  Nothing particularly odd with it that I know of.  Just an onboard Intel raid.02:47
angrynoobjust installed xubuntu and it so beautiful ^^02:47
Dr_willisUbuntunub,  ive learnd to not use raid. :)02:47
DonaldShimodadlentz, seems like dont, i dont undertsand why02:48
DonaldShimodaglxgears top wroking02:48
Dr_willistheres a lot of.. well.. 'strange' raid controllers out there.02:48
DonaldShimodastop working02:48
UbuntunubDr_willis, Well that's a bummer.  It's a home rack server.  Raid was a big part of the equation, lol.02:48
Dr_willisUbuntunub,  could be theres some special modules or other tweaking for that raid controller.  I never use raid any more.02:48
escottUbuntunub, you probably dont want to use an onboard intel raid. those chips dont have much "real" hardware to do the work. the cpu ends up doing most of it02:48
dlentzDonaldShimoda, do you know what version of fglrx you're using?02:48
Dr_willisnight all02:49
DonaldShimodathe one comming on 10.04 lts02:50
dlentzit's probably not new enough for kernel 3.202:50
DonaldShimodaok i will check the one from ati02:50
Ubuntunubescott, Another stupid question then... Is it possible to setup a software raid in Ubuntu?  Really want the raid feature.  Not really concerned with the cpu handling it -- just need the redundancy.02:50
DonaldShimodadkms failed to compile it, i see in the logs02:50
escottUbuntunub, absolutely, but you want to use the alternate (text mode) installer to make life easier for you02:51
=== ellisdee is now known as mayfield
Ubuntunubescott, Can you point me to a walkthrough of that then?  I'm a windows-boob, and linux is still the scary new thing at the moment.  Just wanting to setup a simple application server, and I'd like a gui as I'm terminal-ignorant.02:52
louijhi, if you want gui, you don't want to use ubuntu server02:53
UbuntunubI read that I could install a gui after the fact.  Is that wrong?02:53
=== DaZ_ is now known as DaZ
escottUbuntunub, main thing to remember is that if you are going with anything other than RAID1 you need to have a /boot partition https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/SoftwareRAID02:54
bellmanapt-get install xubuntu-desktop to install the GUI02:54
louijI guess so, but never did that02:54
bellmanhow do you switch from ext4RAID to ZFS02:54
escottUbuntunub, this is the alternate installer. not the server install. it should install the full gui, but it just has a text mode installer02:55
aboxdo not start with ubuntu server if you're new to linux - save linux from another ignorant review02:55
Ubuntunubescott, Just looking for RAID1.  The applications will be running on a small-ish ramdisk, with frequent backups to the raid -- hence why I want redundancy on the hdd side of things.02:55
almoxarifecan some one verify that 'task scheduler' works/no-worky? i set a task(test) to every 2 min open gedit with a file from the home/document folder, it crashes every time, and the chatter on google is 'it crashes' , the task is too simple to 'crash' , syslog says something about 'granchild process execution error' , there must be a simple answer to it, someone care to reproduce the error and perhaps come up with the fix? , btw, the issue is found02:55

scottjanyone know of a cli prog that will extract archive of common format and create a dir for the files if the archive doesn't consist of one top level dir?03:03
bobo37773scottj: depends on the type of archive. You would probably be better off just writing a function in your .bashrc / .zshrc etc..03:04
Oerscott tar unzip unrar ?03:04
scottjbobo37773: I have one, but it doesn't detect if it needs to create a dir for the contents03:04
zrutyRipOff does not seem to work too well. Any better alternatives to recommend?03:04
scottjOer: one prog to rule them all03:04
bobo37773scottj: just create a folder in your function.03:04
scottjbobo37773: no, I don't want a folder if it's not needed03:05
bobo37773scottj: hmm. if then statement?03:05
escottDonaldShimoda, the mdadm --grow command allows you to specify a --level so you can grow it to level 10 and add the two new devices. then remove the two old devices and mounted it degraded to verify it still works and grow it back to 103:06
DonaldShimodaescott, i read only raid 1 and uppers can use grow, im worng?03:06
DonaldShimodawrong?03:06
RoastedI thought the open source AMD driver was supposed to be awesome?03:06
scottjbobo37773: yes, I could figure out a good name for the folder, detect if more than one top level item, etc. my hope was that there was already a solution03:07
jadoeI'd like to remap certain key combinations in certain programs, e.g. from CTRL+foo to ALT+foo, but not switch CTRL and ALT globally. Possible?03:07
escottDonaldShimoda, i dont know for sure. i know it can switch personalities, its certainly possible that it wouldn't be able to do some kinds of switches03:07
Lintscottj, Linux is not for solutions, it's for the challenges03:07
RoastedLint, I use it for solutions.03:08
bobo37773scottj: It should not be that difficult. It would probably be easier if you could look inside the archive first though. Then you would not have to analyze "."03:08
DonaldShimodaescott, i undrestand , thanks anyway my friend, but i think this will not work..03:08
quantumlemurjadoe, out of curiousity, in what program do you want to remap ctrl to atl?03:08
bobo37773scottj: for an all in one solution though that would not work with the function probably03:08
scottjI know there's a command that gives a common interface to major archive types, what's it's name?03:09
bobo37773scottj: you mean like file roller or something? thats not cli though.03:10
scottjbobo37773: that's not the name. it's a cli one, remember reading about it maybe 5 years ago03:10

blsh0pi dont want to lose all my stuff, though03:47
ztag100blsh0p: just backup what you want to03:47
bobo37773Brewster: is it encrypted? why cant you access it?03:48

blsh0pill have to say good bye to dual boot03:49
blsh0plol03:49
cfhowlettblsh0p  why can't you set up a regular dual boot?03:50
ztag100blsh0p: Why don't you just backup your data to a flashdrive?03:50
Brewsteri'll bbl03:50
urfr332gOblsh0p, you can transfer that wubi to a partition.03:50
ztag100blsh0p: then use an ubuntu CD to setup a dualboot?03:50
ztag100Your windows partition will be just fine03:50
blsh0pi think im going to get ubuntu onto a flashdrive03:50
ztag100Why?03:50
blsh0pthe new one, precise just came out, right?03:50

cfhowlettblsh0p   precise: no.  still in alpha.03:51
blsh0poh, damn03:51
cfhowlettblsh0p   install 10.04 and then distro upgrade to 12.04 (10.04 is long term support version)03:51
blsh0pill have to03:52
ztag10012.04? When did this happen?03:52
ztag100I thought it was still alpha?03:52
blsh0pi should have done a real dual boot in the first place03:52
blsh0pwubi was a bad idea03:52
ztag100blsh0p: What's the big problem?03:52
ztag100blsh0p: It sounds like u installed wubi, to test it out03:53
cfhowlettblsh0p   per the author, wubi is not a long term solution - more of a test-bed03:53
bobo37773blsh0p: why? what are you afraid of losing? installs? config files? ubuntu is a lot more portable / easy to back up and restore then you may think.03:53
ztag100blshop: Liked what you saw, and now you want to use ubuntu more03:53
ztag100is what I'm saying wrong?03:53
blsh0pno03:53
blsh0pnot at all03:53
urfr332gOblsh0p, would you like the link for transferring the wubi to a partition, making it a standard dual boot?03:54

bobo37773bs: what is enna media center?03:56
sgo11hi, with 'sudo su www-data', how can I make the shell login as normal user, so the terminal has colors and I can use ctrl+l to clear the screen etc... thanks.03:56
cfhowlettdigitard   have fun/be safe03:56
almoxarifebs: lets assume the whole 'freevo' experience is as bad as the install, look at 'xbmc' for what you are trying to achive03:56
bsbobo37773: its a media center program for linux03:56
bsalmoxarife: i tried xbmc on this machine and it was slow to a crawl03:56
urfr332gOblsh0p, just make sure you are within the limitations of partitions on a single hd either 4 primary partitions or 3 primaries and a extended with logicals inside03:57
blsh0purfr332gO, thanks03:57
urfr332gOblsh0p, no problem :)03:57
almoxarifebs: what was slow? specific03:57
bsalmoxarife: i had previously installed Freevo on the same machine when I was running Mythbuntu, but, I couldn't get mythbuntu to output to my tv, so I had to format and put Lubuntu on03:57
bsalmoxarife: the moment i load xbmc it would take like 30 seconds just to move from 1 menu item to the next03:58
bsalmoxarife: i'm pretty sure this old laptop just doesn't meet the hardware requirements for xbmc03:58
urfr332gObs, enna would not and is not supported here just a heads up. :)03:59
zykotick9bs: xbmc will be unusable without 3d graphics.  Freevo is certainly your best bet for a light media-center (too bad the backage seems broken)03:59
almoxarifebs: ok, looking at your log file it seems one script is looking for a file that it does not find03:59
bsurfr332gO: yeah not looking for support for enna, was merely wondering if someone knew if it was light weight or not03:59
Jake_JDoes anyone know if there are any audio players for ubuntu that have active crossover support?04:00

bobo37773Jake_J: crossover? as in wine?04:02
bsI guess I should try to install freevo manually and not from synaptic eh?04:02
almoxarifebs: no, same error should occur04:03
almoxarifebs: synaptic is not the issue, install script is04:03

aboxis vbox the best, free hyper visor, for unbuntu. I think vmware cost money and takes more resources etc(?)04:04

zykotick9GatorAlli: if you have an /etc/X11/xorg.conf you could try moving that04:11
cfhowlettFRSH   ask away04:11
GatorAllimember:zykotick9: should I replace that with the default?04:12
urfr332gOwasabi, unity has a 2d logout and choose it.04:12
zykotick9GatorAlli: if you move it, then Xorg will try to autoconfigure on restart04:12

FRSHAlright, Well I am running Windows 7 and am trying to install linux on a separate drive. It gets through everything downloads the ubuntu .rar.xz and will be stuck at the extracting phase for hours and never progress. Any suggestions?04:12
zykotick9ubuntu.rar - love where this is going04:13
cfhowlettFRSH   you're installing ubuntu?04:13
FRSHYes04:13
urfr332gOzykotick9, lol me to. :)04:13
cfhowlettFRSH   while running windows?04:13
EvilResistanceFRSH:  what "rar" is this you are using?  there should not be a rar, its an ISO.04:13
FRSHI mean I used the windows installer04:14
Fireboltwubi?04:14
FRSHAnd in the first phase of installation it says download ubuntu.rar.xz04:14

FRSHhttp://www.ubuntu.com/download/ubuntu/windows-installer04:15
GatorAllizykotick9: hmm, it says its operating on a read-only filesystem04:15
jribsgo11: don't use "sudo su" :/04:15
FRSHMaybe it was an ISO04:15
FRSHbut anyways it is stuck on extracting04:15
zykotick9GatorAlli: well, that's a sparate issue for sure.  Sorry, I can't help - good luck.04:16
sgo11jrib, .... if I don't use it, how can I edit /var/www directory easily? so far, I am doing sudo -u www-data with every vim commands etc... it's too much work.04:16
Jordan_UFRSH: I would recommend doing a normal install rather than using Wubi.04:16
cfhowlettFRSH   you don't extract an iso... are you working from a set of instructions?04:16
jribsgo11: do it as your user and setup sane permissions on the /var/www directory?04:16
FRSHJordan, If I were to do a regular install how would I set it to not overwrite my windows install04:17
FRSHSince I am going to be running this off a 64GB permenant flash drive04:17
cfhowlettFRSH   quite easy actually... you use an ubuntu tool to make space and then install04:17
tigrangIf I press show desktop, all windows get minimized. Then If I maximize one window and press show desktop again, all windows are restored. I expect that one window thats open to minimize and the ones that are already minimized to stay minimized. Is there a way to get this behavior?04:17
sgo11jrib, /var/www has to be accessible by www-data. somebody suggests to add user to www-data group and then make group accessible. I just don't like that solution. I want to edit everything in www-data user. Thus, sudo su www-data is the only solution I can find.04:18
FRSHAhh and it will not override my windows boot manager and windows install04:18
cfhowlettFRSH   basic ubuntu can install in about 3 gigs - add a bit more room for ubuntu data and you should still have a sizeable portion for your windows.04:18
FRSHAlright04:18
FRSHthank you very much04:18
FRSHI will be back on the IRC shortly after I finish my install04:18
cfhowlettFRSH   ubuntu will chain the bootloader.  YOu'll have a boot choice of windows / ubuntu04:18
Jeff__Anyone help me with installing Netgear N150 in Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid04:19
jribsgo11: I'd suggest creating a group www-editors....  I think this is the best approach and what I would do.  If you want to ignore my advice: the answer to your original question is probably: 1) use sudo -i -u www-data   instead of "sudo su" and 2) make sure www-data's login shell is set to bash (not sh; not dash)04:19
FRSHok04:19
FRSHthats fine04:19
cfhowlettFRSH   OR...04:20
FRSHyes04:20
cfhowlettFRSH   if you just want to test ubuntu, install it to a usb and boot that or install virtualbox in windows and install it there04:20

ubottubambanx: LAMP is an acronym for Linux-Apache-MySQL-PHP. However, the term is often used for setups using alternative but different software, such as Perl or Python instead of PHP, and Postgres instead of MySQL.

dipixnovato: ok, let us know how it went.06:23
ActionParsnipHiroolo: the 3.2 kernel is in Precise, not supported here but in #ubuntu+1  if you are using Oneiric with the 3.2 kernel then it is supported in neither as the kernel is not intended for your release06:23
Jon--My machine is booting without alt+f2 or gnome-panel. Doing some debugging to see what it is. Gnome2 + 11.0406:23
Hiroolooh ok06:23
smerdykovhello, does anyone know what the running process for the volume popup indicator is?06:23
ActionParsnipHiroolo: I suggest you wait til april, then install precise as it uses taht kernel and you will be fully supported06:24
ActionParsnipHiroolo: as usb wifi is so insanely cheap, you could buy a new one which works with the current kernel06:25
Jon--I know this is slightly off topic, but anyone have experience with ltsp?06:26

bobo37774Hiroolo: does it show up in lsusb?06:28
HirooloActionParsnip: Yes, thats always an option, but its frustrating since it used to work before and then as things get upgraded it breaks.06:29
Hiroolobobo37774: yes it does06:29

Logos01Greetings! So; I am attempting to install lightspark on my amd64 11.10 system. `apt-get install lightspark browser-plugin-lightspark` goes fine; but then neither Firefox nor Chromium show the plugin.06:31
Logos01Are there additional steps needed?06:32
Hiroolobobo37774: yes, its documented to support ralink module rt3572.  Although as actionsnip said, the problem might be that I'm using a kernel (3.2.0-16-generic) that isn't officially supported by 11.10 yet06:32
Logos01rahwa: What exact command were you using?06:32
supermunNew user here :D is it pretty easy to work with XFCE and change windows managers? Also, are windows managers the same as windows 7 themes?06:32
cfhowlettsupermun   quite easy to change xfce themes06:33
cfhowlett2nd question - no06:33
bobo37774Hiroolo: If your card is supprted by the kernel then why do you need support by ubuntu? Because of the networkmanager version? I do not understand why that would matter. Maybe I am missing something06:33
supermunWould you please tell me where to get themes06:33
cfhowlettsupermun   xfce is a desktop environment - a bit more substantial than a win7 theme06:34
supermunManagers*06:34
supermunYes sorry :P06:34
Hiroolobobo37774: well, for some reason I can't understand it just doesn't get detected by the system.  if I type in iwconfig or ifconfig all i get is eth0 and lo.  It appears in lsusb though and I loaded the rt2x00usb module into the kernel without any problems06:36
rahwaLogos01: just  by making right click and format06:37
brerrabbiti have to allow another user to read, write and exe in a directory in my user directory shouldnt this work?06:37
brerrabbitlrwxrwxrwx 1 steve developers       27 Feb 23 00:40 dev -> /home/konark/subdomains/dev06:37
bobo37774Hiroolo: Is it rt2x00usb or is it rt3572? Either way did you look in "lsmod" to make sure it was loaded? Also, you did run "ifconfig -a" to make sure it wasn't down or anything rightt?06:37
Jon--I know this is slightly off topic, but anyone have experience with ltsp?06:38
ndkellyIs there a way to setup an iPhone to sync with Ubuntu?06:38
somethinginterestrying to upgrade alsa-utils to the latest version has given me trouble. Now there's unmet dependencies I can't seem to satisfy. Please see: http://paste.ubuntu.com/853632/06:38
ndkellyShort of using SSH.06:38
Logos01rahwa: Try opening up a shell and executing "sudo nautilus ." -- then, in the new window that shows up, try running it again.06:38
Logos01rahwa: This will open up your file browser (nautilus) as the 'root' user, which has permissions to execute formatting.06:39
supermuncfhowlett: where may I get XFCE?06:39
bobo37774Hiroolo: Are you sure that your card does not need firware?06:39
bobo37774Hiroolo: firmware*06:39
cfhowlettsupermun   what ubuntu do you have right now?06:39
supermunJust installed 11.10 I believe the most current06:39
cfhowlettsupermun   see   http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/xfce06:40
supermuncfhowlett: 64 bit06:40
supermuncfhowlett: Thank you06:40
cfhowlettsupermun   have fun/be safe06:40
zykotick9supermun: if you just want to add xfce install the xfce4 package06:40
supermuncfhowlett: Are they dangerous?06:40
bobo37774Hiroolo: Yeah I think you may need firmware.06:40
supermunzykotick9: I just don't like the default desktop and I was told I would have many choices with XFCE06:41
cfhowlettsupermun   ?  all this adds is an additional desktop environment.  All your apps remain the same.  NOTE: xubuntu is a fully developed flavor of ubuntu with XFCE integration.06:41
supermunSo I should have installed that instead lol06:42
supermunO gosh06:42
cfhowlettsupermun  also see the kubuntu-desktop and lubunut-desktop options06:42
bobo37774Hiroolo: Maybe something like this --> http://packages.debian.org/sid/all/firmware-ralink/download      It is a debian package though.06:42
cfhowlettsupermun   not necessarily - everyone I know tweaks their ubuntu the way they like it...06:42
supermuncfhowlett: But will XFCE work better un xubuntu.06:43
cfhowlettsupermun   yes.06:43
cfhowlettsupermun   xubuntu and lubuntu are "light" distros06:43
Hiroolobobo37774: it does require firmware, but I believe I already have it on the system "rt2870.bin"06:43
cfhowlettsupermun   they're designed for older, slower, lower spec machines.06:43
mosnohow is a noob supposed to do things like "find $DIR ! -writable -exec chmod u+w {} \;" when file move operations fail due to perms errors on a directory tree?06:44
rahwaLogos01: then  after that when iam trying to do that it apears popup but i coudnt find my drive06:44
supermuncfhowlett: is xubuntu as easy as ubuntu? I am only downloading it if it makes XFCE easier but I don't lose the easy functioning of Ubuntu06:44
supermuncfhowlett: My machine is not old or slow06:44
ActionParsnipsupermun: you can have both, you just choose the desktop at logon06:44
supermunActionParsnip: And no performance loss?06:44
cfhowlettsupermun   I'd say it's easier as it's more familiar to windows refugees...and as Action Parsnip pointed out, you can install multiple DE's and choose at boot.06:44
ActionParsnipsupermun: if you install xfce4 you will get a minimal xfce desktop06:45
bobo37774Hiroolo: Are you sure there might not be liscencing reasons not to include it upstream. I read this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ralink#Linux06:45
Hiroolobobo37774: the way I understand it, the rt2x00 project is a FOSS project designed to create a set of drivers that will accomodate all ralink cards.  They have been adopted into the mainline kernel and as of 3.1+ are supposed to support cards requiring rt357206:45
ActionParsnipsupermun: why would there be, it just uses more drive space to hold the apps, both desktops don't run at the same time06:45
supermunActionParsnip: I want all ubuntu features minus the side bar thing hence why I want XFCE but I don't want to lose anything else really. Will xubuntu satisfy that requirement?06:46
cfhowlettsupermun   yes.  see  http://xubuntublog.wordpress.com/2008/02/10/design-your-own-desktop-with-xfce-44/06:46
ActionParsnipsupermun: that's fine, you can run your gnome apps in xfce without issue. xfce is a great relpacement06:47
ActionParsnipsupermun: what are you expecting to lose exactly?06:47
bobo37774Hiroolo: I wish I had the same card so I could troubleshoot more. I would say give it a go. What do you have to lose? 50 kb disk space? But you may be right. I would like to see the link you have that says it is supported completely.06:47
supermunI don't know lol I just installed ubuntu and I don't like the desktop so I was told XFCE was for me. But now I hear maybe just installing xubuntu is prob what I should have done haha. I am not concerned with performance I just don't like the desktop06:48
supermunSo maybe I should keepmubuntu ?06:48
supermunI just feel like I installed and wasted time06:49
rahwaLogos01: even idon't have permition to format it is locked06:49
supermunI don't know what I would lose, im new06:49
cfhowlettsupermun   their are many DE's available.  Try 'em all - they're free.06:49
UbuntunubMinecraft is finally running!  Thanks ActionParsnip for all the earlier help.  :)  Now to get started on learning how to setup that ramdisk.  And learn how to make a text file, heh.  :D06:49
Hiroolobobo37774: one sec I will send, thanks for all your interest so far.. part of the problem was that until the last few days, I really didn't understand how any kernel/wireless/module stuff worked at all06:50
supermunThis is what confuses me. You. Said that xubuntu has a better XFCE experience. How much worse is the ubuntu XFCE?06:50
cfhowlettsupermun   for xubuntu in your terminal type sudo apt-get install xfce406:50
cfhowlettsupermun   not better or worse - differnt06:50

bobo37774Hiroolo: I dont see what you could be doing wrong. Run "ifconfig -a" and "rfkill list" if you do not see your wifi card anywhere it may not be working correctly. Did you have to load the module manually or was it autoloaded?06:56

bobo37774Hiroolo: Its not just that its firmware. Its that part of the firmware may be closed source. Much like installing the closed source nvidia driver after you install. To answer your question though drivers are software written on your hard drive while firmware is usually written on a chip in hardware. You may want to look into it further but that is my understanding.07:07

gogo_Hi, my sata hdd on 5 yr old laptop just died. I am thinking of using 64GB SD card or usb drive as cheap storage option. Will I be able to install Ubuntu on these? Also these options will provide similar performance matching sata hdd? Thanks!!07:17

Canadian1296Okay, I just installed ubuntu server (yes, this question belongs here.) and I need to connect it to my wifi network to update the packages. It is a WPA network, and I can't seem to connect. I brought down eth0, and brought up wlan0. I read in a guide I needed to install wpaservices. As I have no connection I got the .deb on a memory stick, but I cant install it since it's dependancies need to be updated as well.07:49
zykotick9hearno_: that sounds more like a configuration issue then a bug... but it "could" be a bug.07:49

bobo37774supermun: Usually packages you need to build from source are distributed that way. Did you search in the software center first to make sure the application you are looking for is not in there?08:07
KartagisMango: you might try deleting the init script from /etc/init.d/08:07
supermunYes08:07
KartagisMango: or rename it08:07
supermunNot on there08:08
orbisvicisAngablade: remove doesnt work08:08
zykotick9Mango: ubuntu doesn't have a "good" way to manage services anymore...08:08
MangoOk08:09
Jon--zykotick9, you mean... like service?08:09
bobo37774supermun: okay well generally speaking you extract the archive, navigate to it in your terminal, and then run      configure, make, makeinstall. You should use checkinstall though so you do not have to save the source code to uninstall it.08:09
zykotick9Mango: re Kartagis' comment (WARNING) it's /etc/init/ you should be using08:09

jonahhi everybody. i'm having a problem installing vmware player. i'm on a new Asus zenbook which doesn't work great yet with linux so i installed kernel 3.3.0rc7 but now when i try install vmware player it says i have the wrong gcc version to what my kernel was compiled on. i've tried also install gcc-4-4-base as well but it doesn't seem to help. does anyone know a way around it? thanks for any help08:10

supermunbobo37774: Well I gotta have it haha. Let's dive rightin?08:11

zykotick9!checkinstall08:11
ubottucheckinstall is a wrapper to "make install", useful for installing programs you compiled. It will create a .deb package, which will be listed in the APT database and can be uninstalled like other packages. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/CheckInstall - Read the warnings at the top and bottom of that web page, and DO NOT interrupt CheckInstall while it's running!08:11

ubottuEngin: If you want to remove all !Gnome packages and have a default !Kubuntu system follow the instructions here « http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/purekde »10:47
Enginit's annoying to see firefox and thunderbird being upgraded during a system upgrade10:47
icerootEngin: use that link but dont use the last command "sudo apt-get install kubuntu-desktop"10:47
Enginok10:47
mosnois setting APT::Install-Recommends "false" a bad idea on Ubuntu?10:47
mosnoie. does it break stuff10:47
icerootmosno: why you want that?10:48
Nunusmi3: http://www.go2linux.org/limit_rate_resume_downloads_wget ?10:48
mosnoiceroot, because installing apt-file is pulling in crazy stuff like build-essential10:48
Defuerahi, i've installed ubuntu 11.10 on clearly formatted hard disc, so there a problem if I restart the system, it just frezes. On shut down or hibernation there's no problems, can anyone help me please10:48
Enginiceroot: manual removal ? doesn't look like very neat10:48
icerootEngin: but that is the way10:48
Enginiceroot: why can't i just reverse ubuntu-desktop installation ?10:48
icerootEngin: because its just a metapackage10:49
Enginok10:49
icerootmosno: and its listed as recommend?10:49
mi3Nunus: will it work on a youtube site? How do I get that download link of the youtube video in the 1st place?10:49
nt51ikonia: I just booted my Ubuntu installation without the nomodeset boot option, and it did load the desktop. However, I did not see any output even though I removed the "quiet splash" commands, and the nouvaeu driver appears to be working fine10:50
icerootmosno: there is "youtube-dl" which is downloading videos from youtube on the shell10:50
nt51only sometimes will the desktop actually load.10:50
icerootmosno: sorry wrong nick10:50
icerootmi3: there is "youtube-dl" which is downloading videos from youtube on the shell10:51
mosnoiceroot, directly or indirectly, yes10:51
mosnoiceroot, i know setting that fixes my problem, but i know how if you tweak Ubuntu too hard it can break10:51
mosnoeg. something might be relying on the default behavor10:51
mosnobehaviour*10:51
icerootmosno: you can disable recommends just for one command10:51
Defuerai googled for a long time, no answer, if not here then where?10:52
mosnoiceroot, i know10:52
icerootmosno: but normally there is a reason for that setting and i bet setting that globally will break some stuff10:52
mosnoiceroot, it's the same in debian, except setting it doesn't break anything10:52
Defuerapls)10:52

JulianoAlbertoahhhh so simple... thank you Dr_willis!11:20
Dr_willis!firewall11:20
ubottuUbuntu, like any other Linux distribution, has firewall capabilities built-in. The firewall is managed using the 'ufw' command - see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UFW | An alternative to ufw is the 'iptables' command - See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/IptablesHowTo | GUI frontends such as Gufw (GNOME) and Guarddog (KDE from Lucid onwards) also exist.11:20
al_you guys rock.  thanks.11:20

al_I'm new to linux.  I looked at some reviews.  Reviews said antivirus isn't needed but I must add a firewall.11:21

icerootmi3: yes11:47
theadminanselmooo: Hm, you probably need to use uid=, gid= or some umask thing.11:47
meerkatsMonkeyDust, but I am seeing everything as root, not as a regular user, and that doesnt allow me to access a new flashdrive (FAT32) I bought11:47

anselmoootheadmin: when i try adding the file_umask=0111 option in fstab i get a "cannot parse options error"11:49
mi3Nunus what is direct rendering? in your own words?11:50
sallythank you11:50
nathan___can you force a folder in inherit the group ?11:50
berNunus, what do I have do to then?11:50
mosx1ok, I changed the interfaces file, how do I restart the interface ?11:50
scotty^sally:  Is there anything specific you need to know how to do right now?11:51
theadminmosx1: sudo ip link set eth0 down ; sudo ip link set eth0 up11:51
scotty^!flash |sally11:51
ubottusally: To install Flash see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RestrictedFormats/Flash - See also  !Restricted and !Gnash11:51
Nunusber: It means that you have the proprietary drivers installed, so you can handle 3D rendering well.11:52
NunusDo you use Compiz or something ? Like 3D effects11:52
mi3hmm11:52
mosx1didn't work11:52
sallyscotty: no...I'm just curious about the different types of linux... Ubuntu seems kinda similar to mac and windows combined together11:52
berNununs, but I don't :(11:53
sallyscotty: but I guess there are more complicted ways of using a linux with dos-like codes...11:53
mosx1nevermind i went for a reboot11:53
berNunus, I have video errors.11:53
sallyubottu: thank you.11:53
Nunusber: what type of errors ?11:53
berNunus, how can I sendo you a screenshot?11:54
theadminsally: "dos-like codes" are called commands11:54
theadmin!bash | sally11:54
ubottusally: The linux terminal or command-line interface is very powerful. Open a terminal via Applications -> Accessories -> Terminal (Gnome), K-menu -> System -> Konsole (KDE), or Menu -> Accessories -> LXTerminal (LXDE). Guide: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UsingTheTerminal11:54
theadmin"K-menu"? Seriously? That thing is called kickoff :/11:54
theadminlol11:54
scotty^sally: Ubuntu is vaguely similar to that combination (although I haven't seen Windows 7).  Ubuntu is widely regarded as the most user-friendly Linux distribution, although that means it is not quite as cutting edge as some other distributions.11:54
Nunusber: just launch gnome-screenshot, save your image and upload it to http://tinypic.com/ then11:54

vivekimsitMy terminal gets locked after going to certain limit upwards, Is there any way to extend this limit?11:55
melvincvA doubt on Ubuntu's ssh client: My internet connection is unstable, so my ssh client shows an error and disconnects my session often. Error: "Write failed: Broken pipe" Any solutions?11:55
berNunus, look: I took a screenshot and in the picture the mouse pointer looks good!! But in my screen it is a 1x1 inch square full of coloured dots.11:55
sallywhy do we have to use the command code when we can use the interface ? o.O11:56

berNunus, my mouse cursor seems a QR code11:56
vivekimsitHow to increase my terminal scroll limit?11:57
berNunus, like this http://www.iochiamo.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/08/codice-qr.jpg11:57
theadminvivekimsit: The scroll buffer isn't infinite -- as an alternative to this, use the "less" command11:57
theadminvivekimsit: Something like "foo | less" will make the output of "foo" scrollable with arrows for easy readability11:57
EtheraelOneiric upgrade is utterly useless.11:57

Nunusit'll update your driver to the latest version11:58
theadminmi3: /list11:58
bazhang!alis | mi311:58
ubottumi3: alis is a services bot that can help you find channels. Read "/msg alis help list" for help and ask any questions about it in #freenode. Example usage: /msg alis list #ubuntu* or /msg alis list *http*11:58
* melvincv thinks he ran a few commands whose output didn't show up with less or more???11:58
Etheraelbazhang: I imagine that would just turn RTNETLINK file exists.. yep it does11:58
theadminmi3: But it's a bad idea on Freenode, will hang your client, Freenode has way too many channels :D11:58
bazhangtheadmin, not a good way to do it11:58
Etheraelbazhang: it works when I manually ifup eth011:59
Etheraelbazhang: It just won't *automatically* start11:59
theadminmi3: bazhang is correct, you want to use alis11:59
nathan___should i use net usershare or just edit smb?11:59
Etheraeland in the network prefs window (aside fromt ehf act that some weird graphics problem is causing random mwindows and menus to blank) there is no wired network entry11:59
mi3thank you11:59
bazhangEtherael, so you can get ethernet networking?11:59
Etheraelbazhang: Yep, it's fine, I just want it to show up in the network admin interface and also to start automatically without me having to shell and ifup eth0 every reboot.12:00
vivekimsittheadmin: Ok! here is the answer in the terminal go to edit-> Profiles -> Default -> Edit -> Scrolling -> Scrollback.12:00

bazhangwily, package name?12:05
dr_willis$HOME would be used in  bash or a shell. not a file dialog12:05
vivekimsitI don't want to search packages, I am seeing the log on a terminal and I want to search some keywords there12:05
MonkeyDustvivekimsit: you mean grep?12:06

anselmoooyep12:09
theadminanselmooo: Then it should be okay...12:09
mi3ok12:09
anselmooodon't know why mount doesn't recognize the file_umask option then12:10

chipotlewhen should i use the 64bit version of ubuntu?12:13

theadminchipotle: Then use it, there ain't many disadvantages, UNLESS you know you need to run software that's for 32-bit only12:14
MonkeyDustchipotle: then you can use 64bit12:14
forbidden404theadmin: There's something about 64-bit and OS? Because I use Windows 64 bit just because of my RAM, 6gb RAM, but the OS came with the notebook, so I thought that fits perfectly, I use 64 bit in Ubuntu, but how do I know what type is my processor?12:15

ikoniatrishxo: although I don't think the package will remove cleanly (this is one of the reasons macbuntu is poor - it rarley seems to remove fully/cleanly)13:21
ikoniatrishxo: if you use the grub menu there should be a recovery mode13:21
k013monkeydust - sorry i'm using a gui, where do i enter the sudo command?13:21
al_I just installed "CompizConfig Settings Manager" and typed "compiz --replace" in the command line but it's special effects don't seem to be working.  Any advice?13:21

NyLesllutz_: theadmin thanks guys..13:28
trishxoikonia: i know it won't change it, lol.. it's just you don't get the point it's not the app itself.. it's the fact i forgot to uninstall it.13:29

ikonianathan28: macubuntu13:29
NyLesfollowing that error is, Fatal Server Error: no screens found.. i have no desktop i think xserver is not starting..13:29

trishxoikonia: there is a new theme for 11.10 and 12.04.13:30
ikonianathan28: however as it doesn't install/uninstall cleanly it often causes problems due to some of the things it overwrites and how it installs13:31
ajnabicancerauronandace: http://paste.ubuntu.com/853979/plain/13:31

uuuuahi, i have a question about pinning. I want to upgrade linux-source to the version of precise.  Why that http://pastebin.com/9bckwx12 doesn't work?13:38
uuuuaI've also tryed with that http://pastebin.com/6tpHusKG13:38
nathan28freeway_: a boot manager is where you put shoes13:38
bazhangMonkeyDust, thats not about launchpad accounts13:38
nathan28it's also the thing that loads your OSes: GRUB, GRUB2, syslinux, BURG13:39
NyLesnathan28: i see, but the thread i am reading to solve my problem uses drivers from the maker site, BUT since it still not working, ill take your advice thanks again..13:39
MonkeyDustbazhang: i thought he wanted th ubuntu devel irc channel, sorry13:39
ajnabicancerauronandace: jockey-gtk -> brought up the hardware driver window13:39
freeway_bazhang do u know how to install mac os x pack on ubuntu13:39
nathan28NyLes: what is your problem?13:39
nathan28freeway_: you don't want to install the mac osx theme apparentely13:39
bazhangfreeway_, it s unsupported and wreck things, please dont bother13:39
nathan28it doesn't install cleanly13:39
nathan28unless you roll your own13:39
auronandaceajnabicancer: its rather straightforward from there, choose the driver install it and restart to use it13:40
freeway_nathan why13:40
nathan___nevermidn13:40
freeway_ok bazhang13:40
nathan28freeway_: b/c apparently it breaks things and won't unistall properly13:40
NyLesnathan28: black screen when using nvidia-96 drivers.. nv drivers are working.. can you tell me what would be the difference using "nv" drivers than real nvidia drivers?13:40
nathan28you can13:40
freeway_lol fankz bro13:40
ajnabicancerauronandace: it's showing two versions 173 and 96 and below on the windows it's telling that "different version of this driver is in use"13:41
freeway_nathan  i want to install audio driver for my dubuntu13:41
ajnabicancerauronandace: i have installed 173 version that ubuntu suggeting as recommended. so i think i'll go for it again and will be back here13:42
spartitionHi everyone ! Can someone tell me why, at each boot, it stops and shows me initramfs ?13:42
nathan28NyLes: my guess is you need to build the nvidia modules for the kernel13:42
jkleinJOIN 'kde13:42
jkleineJOIN #kde13:42
jkleinJOIN #kde13:42
auronandaceajnabicancer: did you restart after installing the driver?13:42
nathan28NyLes: n/m, it looks like you may not need to13:43
freeway_what is d function of kde13:43
NyLesnathan28: yeah i think.. so i will be sticking with nv for the moment, can you tell me the difference?13:43
bazhangfreeway_, what do you mean function, it's a desktop environment13:43
bazhang!kde > freeway_13:44
ubottufreeway_, please see my private message13:44
nathan28NyLes: the free drivers are generally just not as good on performance13:44
nathan28NyLes: worse 3D, much higher power consumption13:44
nathan28otoh they are easier usually to deal w/13:44
NyLesnathan28: OMG..13:44
nathan28NyLes: not really13:44
NyLesnathan28: thanks for the information..13:44
nathan28just slower and clunkier13:45
nathan28fwiw the proprietary linux drivers are usually not fantastic either, kind of an afterthought13:45
NyLesnathan28: yeah i can really feel the slow performance with nv...13:45
uuuuai've also tried with http://pastebin.com/6tpHusKG and I got the same result. It seems that it doesn't care of files in preferences.d13:47

joallardmagicJ, thank you!13:54
uuuuaspartition: you have compiled a kernel? what is the error?13:54
os12NyLes, check this out it might help... https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SoundTroubleshooting13:55
rafalmi_did anyone have problems with nvidia issue "You do not appear to be using the NVIDIA X driver. Please edit your X configuration file (just run `nvidia-xconfig` as root), and restart the X server."13:55
spartitionuuuua, I think I've got 2 different errors. When it boots, after grub, the boot sequence stops and shows me an initramfs plus a hdio_get_identity failed.13:55
NyLesos12: ok thanks i'll try that13:56
rafalmi_and nvidia-settings shows this info above and contains only one tab with enable tool tips', 'display status bar' and three other similar option13:56
spartitionuuuua, and eventualy, how do you compile the kernel ? :o13:56
NyLesrafalmi_: just follow what it says13:56
judhscarleo,  thanks i did it...13:56
rafalmi_NyLes: ?13:57
uuuuaspartition: no you don't have to recompile a kernel. I'm asking cause those problems can happen when someone did that in the wrong way :P13:57
NyLesrafalmi_: open a terminal then type sudo nvidia-xconfig13:57
NyLesrafalmi_: then reboot..13:57
spartitionuuuua, oh ok. :-D13:57
uuuuaspartition: have you tried with a different kernel?13:57
rafalmi_NyLes: heh I was doing it but I received black screen after that13:57
rafalmi_after reboot13:58
spartitionuuuua, nope. I wasn't having this problem when I was on 11.04 and then I upgraded to 11.10 with the kernel 313:58
NyLesrafalmi_: what driver are you using now? nv? what is your video card?13:58
nathan___anyoen now wherea tutorial on btrfs is on ubuntu13:58
rafalmi_I have GeForce GT520MX and Ubuntu 11.1013:58

Lazerathcan i resize the partition on here with that partition unmounted but with the server live... so that it ends on a cynderlic boundry>14:00
EtheraelOK, that's it.14:00
rafalmi_anyway it shares with Intel inegrated card via using optimus technology14:00
rafalmi_I have bumblle14:01
uuuuaspartition: it doesn't say witch disk is causing the problem?14:01
xinyihello, fellows, anyone could give me directions about how to join in some open source projects ?14:01

rafalmi_sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-x-swat/x-updates14:01
nathan___should i use zfs or mdm for 4 x 2tb raid?14:02
nathan___im familiar with zfs14:02
spartitionuuuua, nope. But when I make a hdparm on /dev/sdg , i get the same error than on boot :  HDIO_DRIVE_CMD(identify) failed: Invalid argument14:02
nathan___wd20ears drives drop out of mdm array iirc14:02
NyLesrafalmi_: im not familiar with ppas sorry14:03
rafalmi_Nyles: it has nvidia-current with 295 driver version AFAIK14:04
uuuuaspartition: searching on the internet produce a huge amount of results maybe you should take a look14:04
spartitionuuuua, I've looked on some of them. But didn't found any answers that solve the problem =|14:05
rafalmi_NyLes: maybe it doesn't work with optimus technology when Intel is used mostly14:05
NyLesrafalmi_: maybe? but i think it's best to see the xorg.conf and xorg.0.log im having almost the same problem :)14:06
NyLesrafalmi_: and finally solved it but not really because im jsut using nv drivers not nvidia..14:07
os12NyLes, i have issues on nvidia previously but now im using alpha 12.04 those issues i guess was fixed.14:08
rafalmi_os12: which nvidia card do you have and which drivers ?14:09
NyLesos12: I'm a lilttle afraid of using alpha versions xD im just a fresh linux user :)14:09
rafalmi_os12: I will wait for offcial 12.04 release :-)14:10

ReliantCan anyone help me with troubleshooting a problem I'm having? My internet connection is alternating every 30s between on and off. 30s on, 30s off. 30s on, 30s off.14:13
MonkeyDustReliant: wireless?14:14
Reliantwired14:14
ReliantI was using DHCP, so I changed to a static and no change. The wierdest thing: I ran an update, and while it was downloading, the connection was stable. As soon as it stopped, it went on/off/on/off again14:15
dtcrshrin ubuntu server, i migrated it to another vmserver, but i cant get networking to work. Iv configured the /etc/network/interfaces to get the fixed ips, double checked the /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net file to see if the eth is ok but i cant get it up again14:16
dtcrshreven though in persistent and interfaces theres no eth1, i can get it up by ifup eth1, and all of them are configured as eth0, which when i try to start tells the interface dont exists14:17
dtcrshrany clues14:17
dtcrshr?14:17
martianReliant: I'm tempted to say that sounds like a hardware problem. Bad wire or jack perhaps. The NIC may give up on the connection if there is a certain percentage packet loss over some period of time, but with actual traffic perhaps the NIC 'tries harder'14:17
Trevor69420dtcrshr did u make sure the MAC addresses in the 70-persistent-net file were correct to the NIC14:18
dtcrshryes. iv checked via lshw14:18
Trevor69420hmmm... then maybe hardware issue?14:18
Reliantit's a brand new motherboard. Installed it 2 weeks ago. The wire is also brand new, bought it about a month ago14:18
Trevor69420did u try another nic?14:18
dtcrshrits a vmware14:18

dtcrshrall other machines are working14:18
Trevor69420that is indeed strange14:19

dtcrshriv cloned this machine, and deployed on the new vm server14:19
Reliantit dual boots to windows 7, and I haven't noticed this issue there14:19
dtcrshrno need, its an ubuntu text based server14:19
Trevor69420so??14:19
Trevor69420u still dont get all the functionality without vmware tools installed14:19
Trevor69420u can install it to command line server as well14:19
anvhow to exit from man?14:19
martianReliant: new things can be defective. Ahh, if another OS handles it fine, maybe it's the driver; perhaps different drivers handle packet loss differently... or the ubuntu driver just sucks :)14:20
Trevor69420anv... just type 'q'14:20
dtcrshrfor instance?14:20
Trevor69420the ability to iniate shutdowns14:20

dtcrshrand even if i delete the persistent file and reboots, its created a new one, and the mac avaiable its on eth014:21
dtcrshrwhats the recommended type?14:22

dtcrshrsince the persistent file points towards the interface one, the line of tought i had is i can either change the persistent so the new mac goes to eth0, or change the interfaces config to point to eth1 isntead of 014:27
Trevor69420anv... are you logged on as the user you want to change the password for?14:27

mtlaptopL3top: no14:42
meerkatsTrevor69420, nothing it lists all hard drives, including the flash drive and info about it (fat32, cylinders, unallocated space.,..)14:42
ignoredthoughtsnot asking for the file, I can find it, just need to know what it is14:42
Trevor69420meerkats so.... what14:43
Trevor69420errr so waht's the issue then?14:43
os12NyLes, some nvidia cdrivers to test14:43
meerkatsTrevor69420, so... I cannot format it14:43
Trevor69420select the drive right click on it select delete (to delete current allocations)14:43
Trevor69420make sure it's the flash drive you select14:43
Trevor69420you want unallocated space14:43
os12NyLes, any luck on sudo alsa force-reload?14:44

ccadiouDJones, what does the small battery looks like ?14:44
tjkentTrevor69420: haha yea that is kinda important14:44
archo43oioioioi14:44
NyLesOer: oh thanks..14:44
Trevor69420then right click again select new and then you can specify the format14:44
DJonesccadiou: This what I'm used to seeing http://www.technibble.com/articlecontent/2007/12/remove-battery.jpg14:45
ccadiouDJones, I think it may be the round thing on which I can read "lithium battery" ...14:45
Reliantmartian: Forums to the rescue. I did a search on the network controller, and found posts for downloading & installing the driver from realtek. So far, it looks solved. Thanks for reminding me about the driver :)14:45
L3topand you did a remove and then reinstalled... you could try to remove with --purge option14:45
OerNyles xorg 1.7 / 1.8 / 1.9 does not support nvidia 96 ( they hope it get fixed, but that driver is obsolete, discontinued)14:45
=== llutz__ is now known as llutz_
Trevor69420ccadiou, lol yea that is the battery... but not all CMOS chips can be reset by the battery removal technique.. some can14:45
meerkatsTrevor69420, I see, so all flashdrive is unallocated...14:45
Trevor69420ok... meerkats then right click the unallocated space and select new14:46
NyLesOer: what is the xorg version of 10.10 and 10.04?14:46
Trevor69420it should bring u a screen where it has a drop down for filesystem14:46
Trevor69420then select FAT32 or whatever you want14:46
lifedodgehi all14:46
Trevor69420ccadiou, what is the model of the motherboard?14:46
meerkatswhat about free space preceding and following Trevor69420 ?14:47
meerkatsis 1MB enough?14:47
ccadiouTrevor69420, I'm going to have a try. My MB is an Asus VIA K8T89014:47
martianReliant: Great! Yeah, I don't "know", but it helps to have a third party throw out some ideas like that :)14:47
ccadiouDoes anyone know what a jumper is on a motherboard ?14:47
NyLesos12: still no luck..14:47
Trevor69420ummm... meerkats if you deleted all partitions there should be no free space.. it should just read "unallocated for everything14:47
Trevor69420then if you right click select new then the filesystem it should just do everything automatically14:48
martianccadiou: they're those little ~8mm pins sticking up in little groups.14:48
Trevor69420u dont need to make adjustments14:48
meerkatsTrevor69420, in the "create new partition" editor14:48
martianccadiou: but laptops don't usually have accessible jumpers14:48
Trevor69420are you using gparted meerkats ?14:48

craigbass1976tjkent, I can't start dhcp server soon after logging in either, and I'm guessing it's because my network connection doesn't finish for a bit after I'm logged into xfce.  Is it possible for eth0 (which is static) to connect earlier in the boot process than it currently does?14:49
ccadioumartian, it can be usefull to unload the condensator of the Cmos RMA, can't it ?14:49
Trevor69420meerkats i guess i dont know what you are looking at14:50
Trevor69420give me a minute here14:50
tjkentmeerkats: you can't format the filesystem if you are mounted to it, unmount the drive, by right-clicking it in the table in gparted and then format it14:50
ccadioumartian, not RMA but RAM14:50
Trevor69420ccadiou, I would like to draw your attention to the Clear CMOS jumper, which finds itself almost under the left end of the notorious PCI Express x16 slot, so that you will only be able to use it if the graphics card is completely removed from the system.14:50
meerkatsTrevor69420, wait, uploading a pic asa I get a usable connection14:50
Trevor69420k14:50
martianccadiou: I doubt it. The bios password isn't stored in ram. the bios has its own ram that is kept alive by the little watch battery.14:51
Trevor69420oh yea tjkent forgot about that14:51
Trevor69420martian that's not true all the time... on some PCs thats true14:51
ccadioumartian, so how to get rid of it ?14:51
Trevor69420but alot of mobos now have a built in small flash memory chip14:51
martianTrevor69420: ahh well I digress. I'm outside my comfort zone here :)14:51
tjkentcraigbass1976: so you aren't connected or you aren't14:51

Trevor69420does that look like your motherboard?14:52

Trevor69420?14:54
craigbass1976tjkent, I am all up and running, but I have to manually start dhcp3-server after I've logged into XFCE.  I believe that's when the network comes up.  I also believe the network coming up so late is what's screwing dhcp server up (since it needs a network before starting)14:55

viktor133i'm not succeeding at installing ubuntu maverick meerkat on an older windows box. can anybody give me some assistance pls?14:56
Trevor69420craigbass1976, dhcp-server is to serve IP addresses14:56
Trevor69420is that what you are trying to do?14:56
craigbass1976Trevor69420, right.  Yes.14:56
Trevor69420if you are just trying to GET an IP you need a DHCP client14:56
Oersomethinginteres join #ubuntu+1 for 12.04 support14:56

maarezendewell, iv tryed again deleting the persistent rules, but yet still cant get networking to start14:58
Trevor69420craigbass1976, dunno if you did this yet... but can you try this command and let me know when you are done:  sudo update-rc.d -f dhcp3-server remove14:58
maarezendeon initctl list | grep netw i have the interfaces lo and eth1 (which dont exist neither on interfaces or persistent files)14:59
craigbass1976Trevor69420, and now I'm wondering if it's because the network itself on this box doesn't start until so late in the process.  Doesn't network-manager make it so that you can't get on the network until you've logged in to GNOME?14:59
maarezendeand networking stop/waiting14:59
maarezendekinda lost here14:59

meerkatsTrevor69420, http://imagebin.org/20039314:59
Trevor69420i only run dhcp3-server on ubuntu server14:59
Trevor69420meerkats, yep thats it...  just select under filesystem what you want15:00
Trevor69420FAT32 is usually the standard for flash meerkats15:00
craigbass1976Trevor69420, me either, this is XFCE, but I see network-manager in /etc/init.d and I remember having to get rid of it once so that my laptop would get on a network whether I'd logged in or not15:00
Trevor69420meerkats, just leave everything else as is... those are the default settings and will be fine15:00
meerkatsTrevor69420, can you explain why?15:00
bLiNdRaGei'm running ubuntu 10.04 and want to install fail2ban...all the guides say to just run apt-get install fail2ban, however mine shows that it has no package for it15:01

Trevor69420explain why what meerkats15:01
bLiNdRaGesudo aptitude search fail2ban shows nothing either15:01
meerkatsTrevor69420, why FAT32 is the flash drive's standard15:01
xsl!obex-data-server15:01

bLiNdRaGewhat do i look for?15:02
Trevor69420meerkats windows uses FAT32... u can also select NTFS if you feel comfortable but to be honest it's only an 8GB flash drive so FAT32 is fine15:02
xslbastidrazor: i removed all bluez and blueman stuff... so no problem on removing this15:02
llutz_bLiNdRaGe: needs universe enabled15:02
xslbastidrazor: tyvm15:02
Trevor69420unless u have files over 4GB in size being stored15:02
meerkatsTrevor69420, I was aiming for ext4 due to indexing15:02

G__81_can someone help me out15:04
bLiNdRaGei saw the in component universe is optional15:04
llutz_bLiNdRaGe: "in component ..."15:04
bLiNdRaGethought it meant universe was optional15:04
tjkentG__81_: elaborate15:04
Trevor69420hence why i said it;s fine unless he plans to store more files more than 4GB in size tjkent15:05
llutz_bLiNdRaGe: nah, its in universe but optional, not installed by default15:05
Trevor69420CalicoJack, i have15:05

tjkentTrevor69420: you were saying that I was right with 2gb?15:07
Trevor69420CalicoJack, the thing to know is if you plan to run vpn on your home server it helps to have a static IP address instead of dynamic15:07
Trevor69420no i was saying it'd be an issue if her were moving large files15:07
acidrainugh. it is always so difficult to setup an email server with imap15:07
Trevor69420i agree with that15:07
