colbychipzzz i ran across that in my googling, but my cd instantly boots to try or install with no recovery option00:03
colbydo i have to do the recovery after the livecd boots into ubuntu?00:03
humungulouscolby: system sounds like it doesnt see the drive at all00:04
humungulouser i mean the partition00:04
Ho^OhAre there other things I should be doing to make grub boot properly?         "nomodeset" isn't enough to resolve my issue.00:04
Chipzzzcolby: yes, you can press alt-f1 and get a command prompt from which to work00:04

colbyall right...but it's going to take about 10mins to get there (old p3 850mhz w/ 256? ram)00:08
tking0036grkblood: you can do it with p7zip it is upstream... apt-get install p7zip00:08
humungulousgrkblood: or possibly sudo apt-get install p7zip will work00:08
humungulouscolby: throw that thing away lol00:08

lewis1711I updated to 11.04, but now my fonts lack anti-aliasing. any clues where I might remedy this?00:22
lewis1711sorry, 12.0400:22
ActionParsniplewis1711: ask in #ubuntu+1 for pre-release00:23
ubottulewis1711: Ubuntu 12.04 LTS (Precise Pangolin) will be the sixteenth release of Ubuntu. Codename announcement here: http://www.markshuttleworth.com/archives/784 - Blueprints at https://blueprints.launchpad.net/ubuntu/precise - Discussion and support in #ubuntu+100:23
Chipzzzjeregon: in irssi you can switch windows with alt-1, alt-2, alt-3, etc... your pvt msg from ubottu is probably in the window at alt-3... this should be at alt-2 for you00:23
ActionParsniplewis1711: its Alpha release, you will get issues00:23
lewis1711ActionParsnip: maybe it's not 12.04 I can't even remember00:23
humunguloussomething bothers me00:23
humungulousif he's a server layout why would X be at issue00:23
tyler-riddle92My headphones arent working. I have checked the settings. The speakers work fine. How can i fix this?00:23
humungulousmaybe its something else00:23
ActionParsniplewis1711: what does: lsb_release -sc   say?00:23
ActionParsniptyler-riddle92: what make and model system?00:24
ActionParsniplewis1711: then its 11.10 and is supported here00:24
jeregonChipzzz: i got it thanks for the help ill take a look at this :)00:24
lewis1711yeah it's 11.10. sorry, my mistake00:24
Chipzzzhumungulous: his desktop doesn't work because of the video card... he's using terminal mode right now00:24
lewis1711anyway, about the fonts. is this controlled somewhere centrally? getting the same issue in the lubuntu thing, as well as plain openbox00:24
Chipzzzjeregon: :-)00:24
ActionParsniplewis1711: if you set the font aliasing to something then set it as you want, is it better?00:25
lewis1711I have no clue where to set it though00:25
jeregonChipzzz: well im not looking for a desktop environment all i realy whant is a VPN server00:25
Warp4hi all, has anyone tried using wireless broadband with Ubuntu?00:25
humungulousjeregon: then install the server layout00:25
jeregonhumungulous: i did thhis is what im using00:26

urfr332gOignoredthoughts, good for you sign up for classes.00:32

jeregonhumungulous: any sudgestions?00:32
=== cassy is now known as dansoap
lewis1711yeah, C++ is interesting... many people who learn it first end up programming it really badly.00:32
humungulousjeregon: ok so you have a character set issue on normal boot00:32
ignoredthoughtsurfr332gO: am in school just going through the pre-reqs00:32
nibblerhumungulous, ubuntu has xinetd in its repo aswell, but prefers to start daemons directly00:32
ignoredthoughtsurfr332gO, can't take the classes until i'm done00:32
jeregonhumungulous: what do you mean by that00:33
ignoredthoughtslewis1711, i've read that python is for scripting, is ruby the same?00:33

jeregonhumungulous: using lilo i think00:34
ignoredthoughtsmy end goal is going to be pretty much video game programming?00:34
lewis1711actually C is a good choice if you want to go purely educational. It's slower to program than other languages, but it's very useful, and other languages will be easy after learning it00:34
Antaresignoredthoughts, http://c2.com/cgi/wiki?TuringComplete00:35
humungulousjeregon: try sudo pico /etc/efault/console-setup and play with the values in there00:35
Chipzzzjeregon: i think there's an openvpn in the repos... you can "sudo apt-get install" it from your command line if that's all you need00:35
AntaresThat means anything can be done given enough resources.00:35
jeregonhumungulous: ok cool thanks for the help\00:35
AntaresYou can write device drivers in Python given enough resources. That's just my way of saying that Python isn't *only* for scripting.00:35

AbuMaiaHi there. I'm having mouse cursor issues. The mouse theme I've selected only appears over Firefox. Everywhere else it's a black pointer. I'm using Gnome Shell on 11.1000:59

jeregonhumungulous: about the desktop and how you need it for old desktops and the bot sent it to me00:59
nibblerCXIV, first find out what this user is, whats his name? what means does he use to login? in doubt use "userdel" (or was it "deluser"?) to delete the account completely00:59

humungulousjeregon: nomodeset, but it only pertains to graphical installations01:00
chipotleis there another way to share a file? i don't have wifi set up yet and i want to transfer to my other computer.....01:00
humungulousjeregon: you have server layout which is console-only01:00

nibblerjeregon, what?01:02
chipotleActionParsnip: it's from a mac computer01:02
ActionParsnipchipotle: FAT32 has a maximum file size of 4Gb, so if your file is bigger then it will explain01:02
chipotlethe usb stick01:02
chipotleyea, it's 6gb01:02
chipotlemakes sense, i did it for maximum compatibility across systems01:03
chipotleActionParsnip: which fs do you recommend?01:03

jeregonnibbler: not the router side but the server side01:08
Chipzzzztag100: glad to help ;-)01:08
nibblerjeregon, check your routers manual. on the server side you are done with "sudo aptitude install openssh-server"01:08
jeregonnibbler: hmm01:09
ActionParsnipnibbler: i'd use apt-get as aptitude is not in a default install01:09
jeregonrealy then how do i connect using the local network?01:09
nibblerActionParsnip, it got removed? interesting, thanks :-) apt-get > aptitude imho anyway, don't know how i got used the aptitude....01:10
ActionParsnipnibbler: yeah its in the repos and stuff, just not default installed :)01:10
ActionParsnipnibbler: i use apt-fast personally01:10
nibblerjeregon, on the client: ssh USER@IP (remote login) or scp /blah/file user@ip:/tmp for filetransfer, or use a client like filezilla01:11
nibblerActionParsnip, Couldn't find any package whose name or description matched "apt-fast" ?01:12

Chipzzzcolby: ubuntu should have taken care of it during install, then... you had it running until you did updates, didn't you?01:15

jazzy1anyone know of a channel for wine support?02:48
yeatsch33z: it doesn't make a difference unless you have specific applications that expect the standard port 22 (and they're usually configurable)02:48
ubottujazzy1: WINE is a compatibility layer for running Windows programs on GNU/Linux - More information: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Wine - Search the !AppDB for application compatibility ratings - Join #winehq for application help - See !virtualizers for running Windows (or another OS) inside Ubuntu02:48

CFHowlettGuest59178   greetings03:17

Cindy_i think the battery just ran down03:17
CFHowlettCindy_   let us hope03:17
Cindy_thankfully, ubuntu on this machine uses too much power03:17
Cindy_ok, should i risk it again?03:18
Cindy_too scared now03:18
Cindy_i cant tell if its a kernel issue and how to fix it03:18
dtmbmw325iI have 4:51 on my laptop so far03:18
CFHowlettCindy_   let it cool - overnight is my advice...03:19
aBoundWait till the machine cools down and try again later. I'm sure by default your laptop has a warranty placed on it.03:19
CFHowlettCindy_   also remove that battery and run from ac03:19
Cindy_should i just give up altogether on 11.10?03:19
CFHowlettCindy_   generally I suggest there're excellent reasons to stick with LTS releases - 10.4 is the current and 12.4 comes out in April.03:20
Cindy_i somewhat need ubuntu soon, but ok03:20
Cindy_thanks for the help everyone03:21

mrpopoCFHowlett yeah that should be a good start :p thx03:22
CFHowlettmrpopo   good luck03:23
aBoundBring back the arcades.03:23
Jon--ActionParsnip, The problem we're currently trying to fix is we have an ntfs share, the share has permissions 770, however when user test makes a file in that directory, it's chowned to test:test instead of test:groupnumber, so +w is lost on the newly created files. How can you do some sort of umask to fix this?03:23
Jon--Omg that was tl;dr, sorry.03:23
aBoundIs anybody currently on 10.04.4 the last maintenance release is it stable?03:24
eon_Hello people , does any one used Autodesk Maya on Ubuntu ?03:24
CFHowlettaBound   yes and yes03:24
Jon--The aforementioned nautilus issue still exists, one issue at a time.03:24
CFHowlettaBound   very much so if my ubuntustudio is any indication03:25
aBoundHA! Ubuntustudio surprised people still use it.03:25
CFHowlettaBound   so much so that I feel no compelling urge to immediately upgrade when 12.04 comes out.03:25
aBoundCFHowlett, Sounds like you're kept on the stable train. :P03:26
psusiJon--, to make newly created files inherit the owning group of the directory instead of the creating user, you set the sticky bit03:26
CFHowlettaBound   LTS works just fine for me, tyvm ...03:27
daweefolkhi, wondering... in links or links2 can you number the links like lynx does?03:27
aBoundCFHowlett, No doubt LTS's are just supported longer so they're much more stable.03:28
ChipzzzaBound: i have a 10.04 machine but it isn't on right now... it's quite stable, though03:28
CFHowlettaBound   works for me...03:28
Jon--psusi, Don't you have to be the directory owner in order to write to sticky bit directories? That would only work for one group member.03:28
CoreNetaBound: We are on 10.04 with Amazon EC2 and have had zero problems. Very stable for us03:28
Jon--psusi, We fixed it03:29
psusiJon--, no, the purpose is to have a directory that multiple users can write to ( group or other has +w )... /tmp uses this mode03:29
Jon--psusi, Thank you very much03:30
aBoundIs 10.04.4 running any latest version of Firefox or would I need a PPA?03:33

lewis1711I am having difficulties with mouse and monitor responding when I log out of a session, and into one. when I log in, the mouse often doesn't respond. when I log out, the monitor goes blank and says there's no input. any idea where I might start looking for solutions to this?04:41

cool_beansescott: I can't, my monitor's an old LCD one.04:42
ActionParsnipwannabemonadist: may want to chown to your user too, your cp command will need sudo to04:42
escottcool_beans, well the problem is an invalid modeline. you can specify one in your xorg.conf (although you will have to create one). if you have the money buying a dvi monitor will be the easiest fix04:42

By light version, I mean something that doesn't have to download things for an hour or so (because of my crappy internet connection) in order to set up things like languages (I really only need one language). I looked into setting up ubuntu from the "mini" version, but it too has to download quite a few things, which basically means I can't use my computer 04:57

Jordan_Uescott: For future refernce, in bash the only "special" character in a single quoted string is another single quote. You can literally so '\' would be the literal string containing a backslash character.04:58

DropsOfSerenityarch's package manager is faster, even for binaries, and they have more community support than gentoo atm, gentoo is still the best for compiling your own USE flags, but arch would probably be the best choice for a binary distro of that philosophy.05:34

kabiigonam i in the right place05:36
mi3Chipzzz there is no option of picasa photo viewer!05:36

ActionParsnipkabiigon: not sure usb3 is in the kernel yet. I'd ask in #ubuntu+1 to see if its in the precise kernel05:37
Chipzzzmi3: for example, put a jpg on your desktop, right click on it, select properties, and change which program opens it... done for all jpg's05:38
mi3Chipzzz give me the command to open that file from picasa cos i dont have that option05:39

Etherael1and it was a huge part of the way I used to use compiz.06:09
Etherael1and by the amount of complaints on that ticket, a lot of other people too.06:10
acidrainwhat ever happened to the good ole days where u setup an ftp server and it just worked lol06:10
possible1994Is there any easy way to optimize my SSD for ubuntu, or am I going to have to read about 10 tutorials and extract the applicable information due to dates of posting?06:10
Etherael1I don't even know there is anything else like that available in linux *aside* from the non canonical modified version of compiz grid06:11
acidrainin ubuntu, is it possible to setup a symbolic link that goes to a directory that has certain permissions. but that sym link has ftp permissions, and is able to access files in the other directory?06:11
CFHowlettcisers if you have an ubuntu support query, ask.  Otherwise, stop spamming.06:11
linusOn 11.04 in which file are the screen resolution settingw recorded?06:12
theadminEtherael1: If you don't like how Ubuntu is, switch, that's what I say. Though up to you of course.06:12
Jordan_Uacidrain: Symbolic links cannot in any way affect the permissions of their target, if that is what you're asking.06:12
Chipzzzacidrain: you mean a link with different properties than the folder to which it's linked?06:13
acidrainChipzzz: yes06:13
Etherael1theadmin: I like the reliability of the core and the general strength with which it is put together, the changes in oneiric from a user experience perspective speaking as someone who has actually used a computer before though are utterly devastating.06:13
Chipzzzinteresting question...06:13
acidrainthanks. i would like to setup an ftp server, but i dont want to change permissions on all of these files. though i could do it with a 1 line command06:13
Chipzzzacidrain: off the top of my head, i would think not, but i could be wrong06:14
linus@Etherael1 a window manager rewrite that puts most of the load on the gpu was a great advancement. and I think the user experience is a good start in a new and more productive direction06:15
Etherael1@linus, sure, no objection to compositing / acceleration, no real objection even to having a beginner UX that is aimed at people who don't know how to use computers, but breaking a keyboard shortcut plugin at the same time, which let's face facts, idiot users will never even touch, what's the rationale for that?06:16
Chipzzzacidrain: generally, it's done by making an ftp user & group... setting the file permissions accordingly06:16
xtmobois there any other way of communicating using cURL without POST method?06:16
theadminEtherael1: Could you pm me?06:16
linuswhich keyboard shortcut are you refering to? I think all mine still work06:17
Chipzzzxtmobo: curl is highly configurable... type "man curl" to see them all06:18
linusAnd I dont think it is just aimed at newbie. The incorporation of the gnome-do like app launching and displaying of most recent files could deffinitly increase productivity for all users.\06:18
dnivrahello I'm using kubuntu 11.10 and have a weird issue. I'm trying to use 'jdb' and I get this output. why does this happen? http://paste.ubuntu.com/856200/06:19
Etherael1linus kp+4 / 6 in compiz used to resize windows to 1/3 1/2 2/3 of the screen, it now just does 1/2.06:19

jschallso, on my kubuntu laptop, the regulatory domain on my wifi was set to 00, instead of US... i set it to US using "iw reg set US" but will this change be permanent? if not, how do i make it permanent? shouldn't kubuntu be setting it correctly based on the time zone i select?06:22
possible1994If I only make one partition on my SSD, doesn't that automatically make it aligned, since gparted makes the start sector 1mb, which is divisible by 512?06:24
Chipzzzpossible1994: you'll probably save yourself some trouble later on if you make separate partitions for "/" and "/home"06:25
ActionParsnippossible1994: if you are using SSD, I suggest you put your web browser cache in tempfs06:25
linuswhere are the settings from display settings saved?06:26
possible1994ActionParsnip, I put a few dir's in tempfs, and changed to the noop scheduler06:26
possible1994I would love to make sure my SSD were aligned properly06:27
ActionParsnippossible1994: adding the mount option:  noatime   can help too06:27
possible1994Yes I did that, and discard to enable TRIM06:27
ActionParsnippossible1994: moving stuff to tempfs in general is good, less access to slow HDDs06:27
Chipzzzpossible1994: take a look at it in "disk utiity"06:28
possible1994ActionParsnip, If I had a lot of ram, what would prevent me from mounting / to RAM at boot?06:28
ActionParsnippossible1994: you can, its how the liveCD works06:29
possible1994Well, not most livecd's06:29
possible1994It seems to me, that with a lot of ram, and a decent Sata3 SSD, it would be extremely fast to mount everything to ram from the SSD at boot06:30
ActionParsnippossible1994: i tried to do it myself, you'd need to rebuild initramfs at shutdown to put the changes back on the drive06:31
=== fireball is now known as Guest26380
possible1994ActionParsnip, can gparted be used to align my SSD properly, or do I need to use something more flexible like fdisk?06:35

DropsOfSerenitymi3, right click properties -> open with -> set as default, if it's not there show other applications06:39
Blue1CFHowlett: he's doint this on #debian as well06:39
ActionParsnippossible1994: not sure, i've alwas used platter based drives06:39
CFHowlettBlue1    my vote is kick - but I'm not a mod...06:39
Blue1CFHowlett: ditto06:40
zykotick9Blue1: and you, you're having the same issue on both debian and ubuntu06:40
Blue1zykotick9: yes06:40
mi3CFHowlett tried that option but it directly opens picasa gallery instead of photo viewer , DropsOfSerenity, I looked into that option 1st but that option is not there06:40
possible1994ActionParsnip,  You should get an SSD, it makes an incredible difference, but I know you knew that. I'm out anyway take care.06:40
* CFHowlett *adds cisers to "ignore" for eternity"*06:40
linuswhere are the settings from display settings saved?06:41
linusthere is no more xorg.conf06:41
DropsOfSerenitymi3, you are using unity 11.10?06:41
linusthe settings the xrandr load on startup have to be saved somewhere06:41
zykotick9linus: no xorg.conf "by default"06:41
ActionParsnipyeah, my web browsing will be so much different considering its all in RAM which is faster than SSD. Go figure06:41
bobo37773linus: just create one06:41
linusI know there is no xorg.conf by default.06:42
ActionParsniplinus: if xorg.conf exists, it will be obeyed06:42
linusso when you change the settings where are they saved?06:42

mi3DropsOfSerenit, I use natty [gnome classic, no effects]06:43

ActionParsniplinus: if your monitor doesn't play nice then you will need one to tell the display how to use the hardware06:43
linusok if you are using a propritary driver you need it06:43
ActionParsniplinus: yes proprietary driver06:43
ActionParsniplinus: "06:42 < linus> you dont need it"06:44
linusI just want to change the settings xrandr runs when you start a session06:44
CFHowlettblue1 you wanted kanji characters ??06:44
ActionParsniplinus: my screen sets DPI at something silly like 2000 x 2000 at 1940x1024 res, makes the text HUGE and the windows controls teeny tiny, so I NEED xorg.conf to set the DPI to someting sane so I can use the OS06:45

curiousxnop, usin 10.4 Backtrack... yep i know BT is not supported here xD07:13
ActionParsnipcuriousx: right again, the kernel isn't suitable for Lucid either07:14
ActionParsnipcuriousx: if you know its not supported here, why ask..07:14
bobo37773curiousx: So you are trying to set up a file server on a root box?07:14
ActionParsnipajnabicancer: wait a little while after you see the messsage and then press it07:14
curiousxbobo37773: yes07:15
ActionParsnipcuriousx: backtrack is NOT for daily use, its a network tool. Its not for web browsing and checking your emails withj07:15
theadminActionParsnip: That's not really what it's for... it's for pentetration testing.07:16
bobo37773curiousx: so whats the problem? should work fine.07:16
theadminEither way, curiousx, backtrack support is in #backtrack-linux not here07:16
curiousxActionParsnip i dont agree at all, its comes with a los of servers preinstalled but... maybe you rights xD07:16
ActionParsniptheadmin: does "its a network tool" not cover that?07:17
ActionParsnipcuriousx: either way, its not supported here07:17
theadminActionParsnip: Well, oh, wait, I didn't notice the "NOT for web browsing" (the not part), sorry07:17
curiousxbobo37773: i dont know why but "nfs-kernel-server" dosent install properly, its say dpkg return code 107:18
curiousxand i installed via offical repositories, not PPA or .deb, that the strange07:19
curiousxiand when i do "sudo service nfs-kernel-server start" it never start up, its say "failed"07:20
bobo37773curiousx: yeah not sure. I will never use backtrack again probably. There is a good change it is backtrack specific as they do many tweaks to the system. You may want to ask on there irc ir maybe even forums07:20
curiousxi google it but no wey07:20

urfr332gONyLes, you only have one what do you actually mean?07:21
ActionParsnipajnabicancer: ok then you can run:  less /var/log/Xorg.0.log     and see what is going on.07:21
curiousxbobo37773: yeah! good idea, but its not issue related to BT, when i google it the issue, i found the same issue on Debian, but i'll check no BT channel and forum07:22
ActionParsnipurfr332gO: probably has a few, the old kernels are not removed during upgrades07:22

bobo37773NyLes: Hmm. Have you tryed updating your kernel instead of downgrading and seeing if maybe the alsa modules you need are built into a newer version07:30
urfr332gONyLes, linux-alsa-driver-modules-2.6.38 20 weeks ago07:30
NyLesurfr332gO: so i cant downlaod it anymore?07:31

brkologthe remote machine uses another user humungulous , but in filezilla i used the local user i use in ubuntu08:10
humungulousbrkolog: you can create an ftp user with homedir /home/ftp08:11
brkologhumungulous: windows seems to screw up though, doesn't ask me for credentials just shows an empty ftp server08:12
humungulousbrkolog: browser's ftp mode generally logs in as anonymous08:12
humungulousbrkolog: if you want a cleaner test from windows do it from the command line08:13
brkologi enabled anonymous too08:13
humungulousso thats whats happening08:13
humungulousthe browser tries anonymous first, it works, so it doesnt prompt you for further credentials08:13

humungulousbambanx: dunno08:20
humungulousKartagis: make that "route -n"08:20
Kartagishumungulous: I have no trouble finding out the IP of the cable modem, it's the adsl modem of which I can't find the IP08:21
humungulouswell, sometimes its .10008:21
humunguloussometimes its .1.108:22
humunguloussometimes you cant route it, it depends on how the router feels right then08:22
brkologKartagis: try just connecting the other modem, if dhcp is working, you can find it08:22
Benkinoobywhat about nmap?08:23

StravHi. Here's a few questions about raid maintenance. A few months ago, I assembled a raid5 (ext4) array; so far, everything is fine but I noticed that my scheduled fsck (at boot) usually run really fast so I suspected that the array wasn't really checked. Just to make sure, I launched gnome's disk utility, unmounted the array and checked the file system and then got a popup saying that the file system is not clean. I then launched the08:54
Strav"check array" task and now it's been running for a good 30 minutes with the md0_resync and md0_raid5 processes taking a good 50% cpu. So about this, my questions are: since my array seemed to behave correctly before that, are those checks necessary? And if so, what are the checks and repair operations that disk utility is really using in the backend (so that I could schedule them on a weekly basis) - in the end, I wish to ensure that if08:54
Stravthere's a disk failure someday, that I really can recover and won't be troubled by a corrupted filesystem.08:54
FloodBot1Strav: Please don't flood; use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste; don't use Enter as punctuation.08:54
humungulousdoc: there is a tool i used for dedupe i just dont remember what it was called08:54
Strav(just to make it clear: it's the "check the filesystem" that reported that it "wasn't clean" (I guess this is gnome disk utility launching an fsck on the array); the actual repair operation is done by "check array")08:58

theadminDave_Maydew: That's up to nvidia09:21
Dave_MaydewI asked nVidia the same question09:21
Dave_Maydewguess what they said!!09:22
Dave_Maydewthats up Linux distros09:22
theadminlotuspsychje: That's not really possible. If you want to, you need to change execute permissions of the chrome binary so that only you can run it09:22

ubottugodtrunks: To just use java you need a "Java Runtime Environment" (JRE) and/or a browser plugin. If that is not sufficient you will need a "Java Development Kit" (JDK) aka "Software  Development Kit" (SDK).  Please see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Java about how to install one of three current implementations.09:31

theadminCharminTheMoose: Ubuntu doesn't officially support setting the root password. If you do that, you're no longer eglible to receive support from this channel, Ubuntu forums, etc.11:43
oCeanCharminTheMoose: enabling root password is not supported and may cause all kinds of issues. Besides that, try gksudo, and don't use the -u root11:43
theadminCharminTheMoose: And yeah, use sudo/gksudo. They make much more sense than plain su alternatives of theirs.11:43

theadminMimosakaRyou: Windows support is in ##windows , not here11:45

CharminTheMooseSo how can I change gksu to use sudo?11:45
oCeanCharminTheMoose: gksudo xedit11:45
theadminCharminTheMoose: Use gksudo. Or open "gksu-properties" and tell it to use sudo through that. That way, both gksu and gksudo will act the same11:45
MimosakaRyoui mean from my machine11:46
CharminTheMoosetheadmin, hmm yeah, I tried using gksu-properties, but the settings aren't saved on a dbusless chroot of 11.04. :/11:46

CharminTheMoosetheadmin, it's not a full blown DE, just that stuff like gksu which AptUrl uses is by default in, ah, 'su' mode. *cough*11:48
theadminCharminTheMoose: That's weird, since if I recall right, gksu by *default* actually uses the sudo mode in Ubuntu, but then again it might act strangely because of lack of dbus11:49

sahil_how is mysql different in ubuntu and windows12:22
Dr_willismdsn,  you may want to set it where grub does not hide. and a longer timeout/delay in the configs to make it easier to select what os.12:23
Dr_willissahil_,  thats a bit vague. they should be the same I imagine..12:23

Dr_willisnormally if you have windows and linux. grub does not set iteself to autohide.12:26
Dr_williscould be update-grub is not seeing windows12:26
CharminTheMoose'cept my problem remains, by default gksu uses su mode, applications such as 'AptUrl' for downloading stuff from firefox use gksu, and I can't change the gksu mode as there's no way to get dbus to run inside a chroot.12:26
Dr_williswhy are you doing all this chroot stuff anyway? ive totally missed the reason12:27

Dr_willisfor telnet ;) best to just uninstall it and forget it exists...12:38

markus__okay, _amd_ confuses me12:40
Dr_willismongy,  im not sure if that command has been updated to work with Upstart12:41
Dr_willismarkus__,  amd came out with the 64bit extensions first. :) so they got the name.12:41
markus__fair enough :)12:41

soreauajnabicancer: You probably aren't using the nvidia driver while in low graphics mode13:49
soreauajnabicancer: Why did you install old 175 driver not in ubuntu repos?13:49
ajnabicancersoreau: i am new to ubuntu. i did what i was told from this place.13:50
soreauajnabicancer: Well you should always use repo packages, especially when it comes to drivers13:50

muellisoftmuesli: Hm. there should be. I think Ubuntu has preset to automatically pull suggested (or recommended?) packages. So a plain aptitude install -f (or the like) might help you. Otherwise you might be able to find the setting to pull your desired suggestions then run aptitude.14:10

sgo11jrib, thanks for your reply. I remembered you taught me last time. :) I changed my apache2 config files permission. /etc/apache2/. by default, they are readable by others. i did chmod o-rx. then, i will not be able to read them. so I added myself to group root.15:42
sgo11w1jp, thanks for your reply. but i don't quite get it. for other group, if i am in the group and files are group readable, I can read them fine. why root group is different?15:43
jribsgo11: better to create a new group like "www-editors", chgrp of all of those files, give appropriate permissions for the group with chown, and then add your user to that group.  Or, just use sudo15:43

mbutubuntuhello folks. I'm trying to start Ubuntu 10.04 but it gets Kernel Panic (I know it because I see keyboard leds blinking). I've tried also other linux distro like Fedora but nothing to do... I think there is an hardwar problem with some PCI (or ???). I'd like to run ubuntu live cd in text mode to see traceback for the kernel panic. How to do it? thanks16:33

riad_shourovcan i have only a window manager in .xinitrc file (without gdm or similar) ?16:40
BluesKajch33z,  you don't need to use the ISP default dns , you can use other dns server like opendns or verizon etc , if you have that option in your router dns settings16:41
ch33zwell, then what do i use?16:42
ch33zI have static ips as well.16:42
ubuntu-guylol i removed lightdm blindly to get startx working ... sucks!!!16:42

ch33zBlueKaj  also would it matter because the object I am trying to accomplish is setting up 3 websites to host basic html websites16:42

ubuntu-guyi see16:44
ch33zso really I shouldnt use the DNS servers from the ISP?16:44
Chipzzzch33z: for the time being, they're fine16:44
ubuntu-guyriad_shourov, Can you get working "startx" command ?16:44

Ast001I just tried to install ubuntu on my new Gigabyte Z68P-DS3 motherboard and after reboot it hangs with annoying black screen. It did not show grub boot loader at all... How can I fix this problem ?16:45
ch33zany idea?16:45
zykotick9!nomodeset | Ast001 start here16:45
ubottuAst001 start here: A common kernel (boot)parameter is nomodeset, which is needed for some graphic cards that otherwise boot into a black screen or show corrupted splash screen. See http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1613132 on how to use this parameter16:45
riad_shourovubuntu-guy: problem is ... i haven't any login manager.... i only have a small window manager (ratpoison) ..no gdm or lightdm16:45
TUX11check the disc first Ast00116:45
BluesKajch33z,  well it's not necessary , but if your ISP has provided you with a static IP then it16:45
ch33zso I guess I have to add custom domains? ;016:45
ubuntu-guypopey, I removed it already(Perhaps ubuntu-desktop also removed)... Now ubuntu not starting16:45
ubuntu-guyriad_shourov, i see ... same here16:46
popeyubuntu-guy: that was unwise ☺16:46
BluesKajch33z,  well it's not necessary , but if your ISP has provided you with a static IP then it's probly best to leave the dns settings as they are.16:46
ch33zthanks BlueKaj16:46
popeyubuntu-guy: sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop^    will put it back16:46
ch33zas I read on the next part though since I am hosting numerous sites with 1 -2 ips16:46
ubuntu-guypopey, Perhaps recovery mode?16:46
popeyubuntu-guy: yup16:46
ch33zIf you have multiple domains you wish to search, your configuration might look like the following.16:47
ch33zsearch example.com sales.example.com dev.example.com16:47

FloodBot1ch33z: Please don't flood; use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste; don't use Enter as punctuation.16:47
riad_shourovpopey: i don't have any login manager...is it a problem in running startx??16:47
Chipzzzch33z: is that in the section about virtual hosts?16:47
popeyriad_shourov: no, the problem is having ubuntu-desktop missing, it generally breaks upgrades and new package installs16:47
ch33znope i dont think so chipzzz16:47
ch33znetwork config chipzzz16:48
Chipzzzch33z: ah... they're probably talking about setting up the directories for sub-domains16:48

PatrunjelHi everyone. I have problems with wubi (it sais it couldn't find a riit partiion and that I should go back to the partition manager, but there is no partition manager...) Can somone please help me out?16:49
* w1jp me16:49
Chipzzzch33z: no, it's a matter for the http server configuration to deal with16:49
riad_shourovpopey: so, do you mean .. i have to install the whole ubuntu desktop with gnome?? :O16:49
Canadian1296Patrunjel: The partition manager is most likely gparted, and what exactly are you trying to do?16:50
Ast001ok thanks16:50
popeyriad_shourov: i mean exactly what I said, if you're misisng the ubuntu-desktop metapackage then it's likely upgrades break16:50
Chipzzzch33z: the DNS server only concerns itself with the TLD16:50
riad_shourovpopey: but i am not doing any upgrades16:51
ubuntu-guypopey, Now my network is not connected ... I tried /etc/init.d/networking start but no connection16:51
ch33zchipzzz check your privates16:51
zykotick9riad_shourov: the "upgrade/update" issue is when you go from say 11.10 to 12.04 type thing.  Regular system upgdate will be fine without ubuntu-desktop.16:51
Chipzzz(at this stage)16:51

radioact1veany tips on why my ntfs hd all of the sudden is read-only? I've been using it no problem since installation.16:55
ubuntu-guyBluesKaj, did it by "netroot"16:55
ubuntu-guypopey, how can i disable lightdm?16:56
damo22radioact1ve, if it wasnt unmounted cleanly, the filesystem might be dirty and wont mount rw16:56
damo22radioact1ve, you might need to run fsck.ntfs on it16:56
zykotick9riad_shourov: i rely on wicd-curses (and wicd is probably going to be depricated soon i hear)16:57
radioact1vedamo22: interesting, how could that have happened?16:57
riad_shourovzykotick9: you mean...if i run x without dm , my network will not work?? otherwise... i dont have any dm ..but my network is on16:57
damo22radioact1ve, usually by unplugging a usb drive without unmounting16:57
zykotick9riad_shourov: yes.  try it but it's a bug that's not easily resolved (it comes from ubuntu's upstream)16:58
radioact1vedamo22, its an internal hdd.16:58
zykotick9riad_shourov: wireless only.  n-m can still to wired stuff!16:58
damo22radioact1ve, in that case it didnt unmount properly last shutdown16:58
radioact1vedamo22, could it have been something I did or some random act?16:59
ubuntu-guyriad_shourov, How far?16:59
BluesKajubuntu-guy,  netroot ? ...never heard of that approach16:59
damo22radioact1ve, usually human error16:59

ubuntu-guyriad_shourov, PM?17:02
riad_shourovzykotick9: sorry..actually yes...but its in a script file ..which i run from terminal17:02
Canadian1296What does the DNS server option do when installing ubuntu server?17:03
zykotick9riad_shourov: ;) sorry, not sure again.  Try N-M for sure!  But if it looks like it's working - but can't connect... you might know why.  Best of luck man!  If you're into terminal stuff, I hope you use screen (it's got thousands of amazing features)17:04

VIPER-IIWhat's that command again to force ubuntu to always start in a certain resolution? I remember i had to create a file or so?17:04
ubuntu-guyriad_shourov, I mean Private Message17:05

ironhalikIs there a way to try Unity2D via live CD?17:05

=== CiDhed_ is now known as CiD|afk
riad_shourovzykotick9: yeah. :D not in screen ..but i am in tmux17:05
escotterebus_, swap partitions have no data so you can recreate them or just run mkswap on the partition17:05
Canadian1296escott: No, its to install a DNS server, I've just never used it.17:05
ubottuPlease don't ask to ask a question, simply ask the question (all on ONE line and in the channel, so that others can read and follow it easily). If anyone knows the answer they will most likely reply. :-) See also !patience17:05

raidoCanadian1296: if you dont see how it will benefit you when your installing "server" version, then it wont, so dont check it.17:06
ksus-lptpcan sum1 provide ubuntu help page again17:06
escottCanadian1296, if the machine were a router then it being a DNS server would be sensible17:06
ksus-lptpim on my notbook now17:06
ksus-lptpthis is awesome17:06
riad_shourovubuntu-guy: its good... i can run video in tmux in console (yeay!!)17:06
erebus_escott yeah i know but I have 4boot laptop (2 ubuntu, debian, windows) and the labels are changed after the testdisk17:06
Canadian1296escott: Oh, okay that makes more sense. Thanks :)17:06
riad_shourovubuntu-guy: yes...pm plz... lets see how it works in irssi17:07
erebus_escott, so the labels of /dev/sda* are changed. What I must do? In /etc/fstab are the old names17:07
erebus_So I have 3 ext partitions, one windows, one recovery and 3 swaps:P17:07
zykotick9riad_shourov: video in console?  do you know if it's using framebuffer or vga?  real question, does it require sudo to run?17:07
escotterebus_, you may have to clean up a few things to make the uuids of the swap partitions match up between the three linux systems. sudo blkid will give you the new uuids17:07
athenahi, I just installed ubuntu (11.10) and I ubuntu refuse to use my .xsessions file. How can I force it to use my file ?17:07
escotterebus_, why do you have three swaps? unless you want to be able to hibernate each of the three oses independently there is no use17:08
shanky_1hello ppl :D17:08
GatorAlliHello, I am using Ubuntu 11.10 - amd64. I have noticed that after I suspend my laptop and wake if back up, the fan starts being noisy. It never stops. Works fine after the boot. Why is that?17:08
erebus_escott, yeah I have already got the new uids, but I dont know which swap partitions is for each distro. Is that a prob?17:08
riad_shourovzykotick9: when i first installed ubuntu-cli 11.10, i didnt have xorg then, so i tried with vga17:08
erebus_escott, exactly in order to hibernate :-)17:08
erebus_escott, I dont know which swap is for the distros. In system monitor it says 0 used and 0 size of the swap. (free -m too)17:09
ironhalikbtw, ubuntu could use a dynamic hibernation file, instead of using swap area17:09
escotterebus_, i would just reassign them in some order (any order will do) and you may need to update-initramfs afterwards on each system17:09
ironhalikits insane I need a 5 gig swap area on my ssd17:09
erebus_hmmm so escott there is no need to recreate them?17:09
erebus_I have updated the each /etc/fstab with no luck. so I must update the initramfs kernel?17:10
escotterebus_, so it sounds like the thing to do is run mkswap on each partition, and then pick some assignment of swap to os, and update each fstab, and run update-initramfs on each system in turn17:10
Canadian1296Ill be back later17:10
chipotleis it possible to move a ubuntu install to another drive and erase the old drive?17:10
erebus_escott thanks! Is there any problem with grub or it's only about each distro itself. Cause grub is in the ubuntu17:11
riad_shourovzykotick9: i add my username in video group.. so it doesn't require sudo now17:11
escotterebus_, to get the suspend to work you would need the update-initramfs. but if they are in fstab they should be swapped on unless they don't look correct (like mkswap hasn't been run)17:11
bastidrazor /w 317:12
bastidrazorhttps://help.ubuntu.com/community/SwapFaq  has some good information on swap17:12
erebus_escott, yes there are not reqognised. In debian dmesg it says that swap cant be loaded. So I must run mkswap in each system and I will see. Thanks for your help17:12
radioact1vedamo22, sorry to bother. trying thanks for your help. reading up further i should be doing this from win7. cant risk losing anything!!17:12

chipotleis it possible to move a ubuntu install to another drive and erase the old drive? or at the very least, partition the drive ubuntu is installed on down from 3TB to 100GB?17:14
chipotlewhen i format an extra drive, i shouldn't select scheme: master boot record, right? that's only if i'm going to use this drive as the boot drive?17:15
chipotlei want to select guid?17:15
riad_shourovzykotick9: w3m-img, links2( also with links2 -g), only mplayer( i dont have any other media player), wget, fbi,fbgs, vim, antiword, rtorrent, htop,cbm,surfraw, gpm, youtube-dl, get-flash-videos17:15

wolfmitchellBooting into it via lan17:45
Blues-Manaccording to this https://help.ubuntu.com/community/InstallCDCustomization a new package should put in pool/extras/ but my question is: if the package has no architecture dependencies (Architecture: all) have I to put it in both binary-t396 and binary-amd64?17:45
ActionParsnipwolfmitchell: yes, thats a PXE server17:45
Aitoris posible to add Badoo chat to pidgin or empathy?17:45
wolfmitchellDo the other people in the network need PXE17:45
MonkeyDustAitor  wrong channel17:45
LjLMonkeyDust: why?17:46
Aitormonkeydust: but empathy is built in ubuntu software, it is a ubuntu question if i want to chat in badoo with my ubuntu? isnt?17:46
escottraido, i understand clonezilla works for you on a standard bios/mbr partitioned system. i don't think you know enough about gpt to be able to say if clonezilla will properly clone a bios/gpt system. At least nothing you have said gives me any confidence you know what the differences are, and if you don't you are likely walking chipotle down a path where he will have a nonbooting system17:46

VIPER-IIGuys, I know there is a setting to force Ubuntu to always start at 1920-resolution. Can't remember how to do it, but it had to do with putting 1 command into the 'Start-options'. I have a ATI card17:48
bobo37773Admin_User: Oh okay17:48
wolfmitchellI need it to still be able to boot the regular OS (eg. Windows) but have ubuntu running over the network.17:48
MonkeyDustAitor  i thought you were asking how to chat on Badoo17:49
bobo37773VIPER-II: Maybe an xrandr command?17:49
VIPER-IIah yeah17:49
ActionParsnipAdmin_User: seems to just need java..17:49
Admin_Userbobo37773: If you want to change you ip address in a database and use thouse to calilate what you been doing on the web can you do that or something or am I talking about something else17:49
VIPER-IIwas it: xrandr 1920x1080  ?17:50
Aitormonkeydust: np, by the way, do u know if is posible to chat in badoo trought empathy or pidgin?17:50
ActionParsnipwolfmitchell: then have a virtualbox booting PXE, or you can just reboot and tell the system to boot PXE instead of the internal storage17:50
Admin_UserActionParsnip: lol I just had some coffie lol I get crazy some times sorry about that17:50
bobo37773VIPER-II: xrandr -s 1920x108017:50
wolfmitchellEg. access boot menu and select "LAN"?17:50
Admin_Userbobo37773: If you want to change you ip address in a database and use thouse to calilate what you been doing on the web can you do that or something or am I talking about something else17:51
zgrwhat is fastest (not secure!)  way to copy one big file over LAN?17:51
bobo37773Admin_User: What are you talking about? Which database? You may be thinking of using a proxy server17:51
bastidrazorzgr: scp17:51
zykotick9zgr: samba / nfs would be faster the ssh/scp17:51
ActionParsnipwolfmitchell: yeah, it will hit the pxe server and boot to the liveCD17:52
elhoirmay anyone help me please?17:52
woldhekkiezgr: i use dukto 5, start on both pc`s and drop files on it. Also works between linux and windows. Easyast adn fastest way...17:52
Admin_Userbobo37773: but is it possible to use such a program. to have a history what you been doing on the internet and find which Ip address whent to that site.17:52
bobo37773elhoir: whats goiing on?17:52
wolfmitchellOk, but I don't want the live CD17:52
bastidrazorzykotick9: really? i would think scp would be just as fast as the network would allow17:52
raidoescott: Interesting comment from someone who admits never using it. Nevertheless, The process of cloning will not modify the source drive, He has nothing to loose by trying it.17:52

zykotick9bastidrazor: i don't get the "greatest" performance from scp copying on my network?  ymmv?17:54
wolfmitchellCan I do that with an existing ubuntu install?17:54
Admin_Userbobo37773: mabey I guest but you know in school when someone goes on a site and that perison or if they find something on there history that they dont want it on there system or something they check which last IP address whent to that site and shut them down is I heard of such a tool I just cant find something just what am talking about.17:54
bobo37773elhoir: Did you try updating your system?17:54

bastidrazorzykotick9: i normally have to limit the speed with scp. it takes all my bandwidth.17:56
zgrzykotick9: thanks, I first tried rsync over ssh, and then saw article on lwn which says that cp is much faster (except delta transfers), just thought is there way to just cat file through lan to another pc without ssh? :)17:57

Admin_UserOh I have a Q? for you guys you know it will be so easy if there was a tool that you can use for remote access on a monitor only for remote access or something like that that would have like a ethernet cable and usb ports and sound and and just the stuff that you sould have not like mother board or anthing like that not a computer just a tool that u can use to access remote access and use that for your computer.17:57
