Jordan_Umikodo: The alternate install CD uses debian-installer (often called d-i for short) rather than the GUI "ubiquity" used for the LiveCD installer. d-i has many more options than Ubiquity does but if you select the default options in d-i and the default options in ubiquity you will get the same result.00:02

Satisfiedi'm really finding this new interface in 11.10 very difficult to understand... is there a way to just switch back to the regular gnome interface?00:10
xangua!nounity | Satisfied00:10
ubottuSatisfied: Ubuntu 11.10 uses GNOME 3 with the !unity shell by default.  To use GNOME Shell instead, install the "gnome-shell" package and investigate "gnome-tweak-tool".  For GNOME Fallback mode, which is similar to GNOME 2, install "gnome-panel". Both packages will place entries in the Sessions dropdown. Using Natty? See !classic00:10

MrKeunerhello, I have a lucid box that I love to use every and each day. I am greatly wondering gnome 3 and would like to try out latest ubuntu. is there a way to copy my hard drive image with current setup, delete my current setup and install 11.10 and revert back to current setup using the image? what software do I need for that?00:56
|bird|Effigy: System vars are usually in caps00:56
trismseicherlbob: sun-java has been removed from partner: https://lists.ubuntu.com/archives/ubuntu-security-announce/2011-December/001528.html00:56
seicherlbobMrKeuner: maybe the best would be to install it on another harddrive. thats more secure and faster than using an imaging tool00:56
humungulousMrKeuner: you would have to clone an image of your entire drive using something like partimage or clonezilla, it'd be a lot of work and you'd need a good amount of secondary storage00:56
Effigy-Okay, So /usr/local/bin is in my string path. anyone know why scripts I placed in /usr/local/bin are not found?00:57
seicherlbobtrism: thanks, i just found the "news"00:57
seicherlbobEffigy-: are you allowed to execute them?00:57
arandMrKeuner: clonezilla (simple) or fsarchiver (powerful)00:57
Effigy-hum. i'll try sudo00:57
seicherlbobEffigy-: type in your terminal: "ls -al /usr/local/bin/myscript.sh" and check if you have the permissions set right00:57
humungulousEffigy-: you also have to exit and reeenter the shell to get them recognized00:58
Effigy-still with sudo command not found00:58
yeochiefMrKeuner: I suggest you make a CD of the latest version and then use the trial from CD rather than trying to uninstall install and reinstall if you don't like. Inst at Ubuntu.com00:59
MrKeuneryeochief, tried live cd already, loved it but one cannot notice all possible problems using a live cd01:00
MrKeuneryeochief, since one cannot use a live cd that long01:00

CFHowlettMrKeuner   true ...01:01
MrKeunerseicherlbob, that is a good but expensive option01:01
humungulousMrKeuner: seicherlbob might be right01:01
humungulousMrKeuner: use the opportunity to upgrade your hd and if you want to go back you got a nice new drive out of the deal01:02
Effigy-do I need to change permissions?01:02
seicherlbobEffigy-: you need to set the rights for execution of the file: man chmod01:02
|bird|Effigy: make your script executable...chmod 70001:02
|bird|effigy man chmod01:02
Effigy-can you give an example of man chmod01:02
MrKeunerhumungulous, :) good rationalization01:02
MrKeunerthanks people, I'll try your sugegstions01:02
seicherlbobMrKeuner: i agree with humungulous: buy a new nice harddrive, so you dont need to reinstall if you like it and want to stick to it.01:03
itaylor57Effigy-, sudo chmod +x /usr/local/bin/script.sh01:03
|bird|Effigy: man is for manual. Type: man chmod, will give you more info.01:03
seicherlbobEffigy-: sooner or later you will have to read manpages... start by typing "man chmod". both (man for the manuals and chmod) are extremly basic things you have to know when running linux01:04

urfr332gOHalexander9000, htop has a kill function.02:27
MrWizardNima: I personally have also had issues with GPUs that use openchrome drivers in Ubuntu not working after install, but working fine in live enviroment, easiest way to fix was to manually copy the X11 folder and contents (which wasn't generated properly on install) over to the fresh install and rebooting02:27

atari314any specific location to get the 686 one? (ty)02:33
CFHowlettatari314   same place you get the 386 - look for "amd" or "64"02:34

ubottuLAMP 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. For help with setting up LAMP on Ubuntu, see  https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ApacheMySQLPHP - See also the Server CD installation process (different in Edgy+)02:36
atari314http://www.ubuntu.com/download/server/download << only shows me 32 or 64 versions... should I look on the ftp?02:36
erpoatari314: Is there a particular reason you need 686 and the 32-bit one won't meet your needs?02:37
psusiatari314, there isn't a build specifically optimized for the ppro, mostly because it doesn't really make a difference02:37
erpoatari314: What are you trying to do that you find the performance of the i386 version inadequate?02:37
atari314yup, too slow, guess I'll have to stick with arch. Tyvm for the help tho.02:38
Reid_Hiya, I have 4 80gb, without being pro can I get this rolling software RAID-5 or JBOD or something like that to use just as a home desktop?02:38
psusiatari314, how do you figure?02:38
erpoatari314: Glad to hear arch is meeting your needs. :)02:39
erpoReid_: Why do you want RAID or JBOD?02:40
psusiReid_, sure, you will need the alternate cd to setup raid02:40
psusiReid_, though... how old of a computer is this?  and what interface?02:41
Reid_Right, I am downloading alternate one now.  Well I figured if I got RAID going I would have some redudancy, save some vacation pics on it.02:42
gmachine_24reid: you have 4 x 80GB hard drives, is this correct?02:42
Jak2000hi all02:42
Reid_Not sure what else to use 4 80gb hard drives for, thats correct.02:42
psusiReid_, raid is not a substitute for backups... redundancy is not to prevent data loss, but to avoid having down time and having to restore from backups...02:42
CFHowlettJak2000   greetings02:42
gmachine_24Jak2000 ask you ? please02:43
erpoReid_: I would recommend installing onto one 80GB drive and then formatting and mounting the other ones where you need them. Simpler.02:43
psusiReid_, are these old ide hard drives?  if they are THAT old, probably best to recycle them...02:43
Jak2000i am installed xwindows on ubuntu (on virtual box) http://imgur.com/vS9t7, but not find a terminal or how to restart, any advice? need insall other software?02:43
psusierpo, having to manually manage different partitions is not simpler than one big fs02:44
Reid_Using my old computer, its E6660, on a Gigabyte board, it does have fake raid. They are 4 SATA drives, if I mounted all 4 drives, i would need to search through four drives to find things....02:44
urfr332gOJak2000, is that the 2d?02:45
erpopsusi: I think it is. He wants more space, which means he needs RAID 0 or 5. You can't boot off of those raid levels, so he'd have to make a separate boot partition. If he chooses raid 5 for redundancy, he'll need to work with grub on multiple disks to make sure he can still boot if his primary disk fails.02:45
psusiReid_, wow... sata but only 80 gb?  odd... avoid the fakeraid junk unless you have to dual boot with windows02:45
motherbraindoes anybody know where I can get a list of valid asm interrupts on a linux machine.... I know of just one int 0x80 is that it? I can look up a bunch of bios int commands like 10h , 13h ,..etc their are tons but problem is I only want the vaild int commands when I am in user space?02:45
psusierpo, you can boot off them just fine02:45
erpopsusi: I think we might be miscommunicating. Your can put / on raid 0 or 5, but you can't put /boot on raid 0 or 5.02:46
psusierpo, yes, you can.... grub2 has supported that for a few years02:46
motherbrainis it just int 80h for linux and int 21h for dos/windows vaild in user space ... Anybody know for sure?02:46
erpopsusi: Wow.02:46
Jak2000urfr332gO yes02:46
Jak2000is the desktop (gui)02:46
psusimotherbrain, what?02:47
psusierpo, when you install grub2 it even prompts you to select all of the drives to install to... no /boot needed02:47
motherbrainis int 80h and int 21h the only vaild interrupt asm commands in user spaces for dos/windows and linux ?02:47
urfr332gOJak2000, your certainly missing the off or reboot..etc in the top right corner if you hit the off for te virtual it will give you the option, for powering off.02:48
Reid_Yea, not really sure what else to do with 80GB drives. Haha, can you make them appear as one volume in Ubuntu?02:48
psusimotherbrain, dos has tons of interrupts02:48
motherbrainlike what?02:48
psusiReid_, yes02:48
psusimotherbrain, google for Ralph Brown's interrupt list02:48
psusimotherbrain, that's the closest thing to a complete list I know of02:49
NimaHi guys, my problem with the black screen is not resolved even after I set nomodeset02:49
urfr332gOJak2000, I would just dual boot the ubuntu to be honest the virtual is chunky at best.02:49
motherbrainNO I DON'T think you understand those only work in kernel / before the os loads 16 bit mode .02:50
psusimotherbrain, and there is no user space in dos...02:50
Jak2000urfr332gO thx02:50
urfr332gOJak2000, good to see you have XP installed. :)02:50
motherbrainok is windows and linux only int asm commands 21h and 80h02:51
motherbrainI know in 16 bit mode you can use Ralph Brown's interrupt list but not when you are already in 32 bit mode02:51
psusimotherbrain, and windows is another animal entirely... iirc, it's kernel syscall is.... hrm... I forget now... 2E was it?... int21 is the main dos service vector, not valid in non dos windows versions ( except when running a dos executable under emulation )02:52

bludshotwill the live cd see the drive? anything special i gotta do for that?03:22
L3topyes, and no.03:23
L3topjust open whatever file manager on whatever distro03:23

xj88Hi all. I have two machines, one is running 11.10 and the other is running 10.04. I have multiple USB hard drives. They worked on both machines consistently. All of a sudden, 11.10 mounts everything as read-only, even when using sudo to mount read/write. Still mounts read-only. This is true of both NTFS and ext3 external drives.

javierf_Hi. I'm using ubuntu 11.10. Why when changing metacity there the up bar doesn't change with it? It remains dark or light as radiance/ambiance03:42
L3topis anyone familiar with the <<deb mirror://mirrors.ubuntu.com/mirrors.txt lucid main restricted universe multiverse>> way of handling sources?03:42
urfr332gOjavierf_, which desktop?03:42
javierf_urfr332gO, unity03:42
javierf_urfr332gO, I meant the panel03:43
urfr332gOjavierf_, unity is aplugin in compiz03:43
=== leaf__ is now known as Guest55005
urfr332gOmetacity is not used unless you load it, at what exspense I have no idea. javierf_03:44
L3topbecause I am experimenting with our project snapshot and using local mirrors seems the easiest way to handle source mangling... however I just ran it and I get a bunch of CD-ROM attempts and errors. No there are none in my sources.list03:44
javierf_urfr332gO, I see... but why it changes sometimes and no others??? There are some dark themes that change the panel to dark, and some light ones that do the proper thing to light. But others don't do it03:44
urfr332gOjavierf_, no idea.03:45
javierf_urfr332gO, ok, thanks anyway for the key that works as a plugin :)03:46
urfr332gOjavierf_, no problem.03:46
javierf_anyone else has an idea how to adapt unity panel to the theme I'm using? Why it adapts sometimes and sometimes no=?03:47
urfr332gOjavierf_, I think the unity panel is unchangeable I thought you meant the top panel.03:47

urfr332gOMrKeuner, in 11.10 which I'm running that is the path.04:09
erpinghamtoafan, basically the desktop session is hanged probably for at least 5 minutes. I can still switch to virtual terminals though.04:09
erpinghamtoafan, basically it has never come back for me.04:10

MrKeuneranyone using lenovo x200 laptop with 11.10? how does hibernate and suspend work?04:14
urfr332gOMrKeuner, it could be that the gnome launcher needs to be changed to FF as default, with permissions it is helpful to name exactly what your ding as far as a app or file etc.04:14
toafanerpingham I got nothing -- try loging in on something else and then back in?04:14
chipotlehi, should i have used master boot record when i install ubuntu rather than guid?04:14
Exodusxj88, does the kernel drop anything at you?04:14
universoHelp me out with this homework? The ____ command shows you the entire path and file name for anything containing the text string you indicate. FIND, TOUCH, DLOCATE, SLOCATE.04:15

urfr332gOuniverso, frrom your professor.04:15
Exodusuniverso, FIND a teacher04:16
urfr332gOuniverso, or other students.04:16

Exodusuniverso, ;)04:16
r0b-uery flyback04:16
universoExodus: Your advice is greatly appreciated, I will find my way to campus04:16
toafanlooking for .desktop launchers, find / -name *.desktop didn't come up with any useful results04:18
Exodusuniverso, yes, you should "find -iname" a teacher, that way you don't get upper or lowercase issues04:18
xj88Exodus: It says write protect is off, but write cache is disabled. Is that a clue? (hopeful)04:18
toafanmaybe try again, with sudo?04:18
chipotlehi, can i install win7 after i installed ubuntu?04:18
Exodusxj88, hehe not really04:18
toafan(in that case, how to exclude dirs?)04:19
Exodusxj88, do this: open a terminal and type: tail -f /var/log/syslog04:19
Exodusxj88, then, plug the hard drive04:19
MrKeunertoafan, must be something similar to /usr/share/applications...04:19
Exodusit should give you in 'realtime' what the kernel is logging04:19
chipotlei need to create a MBR partition for ubuntu, correct? not GUID?04:19
xj88Exodus: Oooh (from last time): NTFS driver 2.1.30 [Flags: R/O MODULE]04:20
Exodusxj88, also, try: sudo mount -o remount,rw /dev/DEVICE04:20
urfr332gOchipotle, sure you will have to reload the mbr though to get grub.04:20
toafanchipotle, you could (win7 after ubuntu) -- same way you can install ubuntu after win7 ;)04:20
Exodusxj88, see, that's an error04:20
Exodusxj88, it could be that it didn't shut down properly and it's loading RO04:20
MrKeunertoafan, also checkout ~/.local/share/applications04:21
xj88Exodus: But it doesn't on my other two machines?04:21
toafanchipotle, trick is the windows bootloader has a nasty reputation...04:21
xj88Exodus: Any idea how to clear that?04:21
Exodusxj88, diff version of kernels and software04:21
urfr332gOchipotle, ah guid your on your own there I have no clue.04:21
xj88Exodus: That makes sense.04:21
Exodusxj88, there's a program, called ntfsfix, or something like that04:21
Exodusxj88, or maybe: fsck.ntfs /dev/DEVICE04:21
chipotletoafan: i think i will wipe ubuntu and then install win704:21
Exodussudo it04:21
chipotleurfr332gO: so i should select mbr and not guid when creating a partition type?04:22
Exodusxj88, I'm giving all this from the top of my head since I'm on a live CD atm without anything installed =b04:22
chipotlewhat partition type do i create when i wipe the boot drive and want to partition for ubuntu and windows 7?04:22
toafanchipotle: from there you could re-install ubuntu if you're after dual-boot04:22
urfr332gOchipotle, I have never had a GUID set up not sure really.04:22
chipotleurfr332gO: toafan ^ i will use ntfs for win7, i guess04:22
Exodusxj88, but look for those command-line apps04:22
toafanchipotle yeah, ntfs for windows is the way to go04:23
chipotletoafan: okay, but how do i partition the drive? what do you recommend? 50GB for windows7 using ntfs, what about ubuntu?04:23
toafanchipotle totaly depends04:23
chipotletoafan: should i leave 50GB for the entire install on one drive, and then i can have info on other drives? (i have 6 hdd's in my system)04:23
chipotletoafan: on?04:23
Exodusxj88, ntfsfix should do it04:23
chipotlei want to keep the ubuntu install on its own drive, preferably04:23
chipotleerm, partition04:23
toafandrive size, drives available, prime/prefered boot...04:24
toafanI could probably go on04:24
toafanI used the ubuntu instalation partitioning tool on my system04:24
chipotletoafan: i have 1 ssd that will hold the two OS's, 1 500GB, 2 3TB and a 2TB drive. the 3TB is for media, the 2TB and 500GB drive is for backups04:24
MrKeunerhello, have been using chromium for my default broswer for a while, tried changing default browser to Firefox using gnome preferred applications dialog. still chromium opens when clicked on a gnome launcher but chromium warns that it is not the default broser :)04:25
MrKeunerhow to change the default browser?04:25
toafanwait, backup to the 2tb, not the 3tb?04:25
toafanhrm. ok04:25
ExodusMrKeuner, open firefox and set it in the preferences.04:26
xj88Exodus: ntfsfix ran successfully but the drive still mounts read-only04:26
MrKeunerExodus, thanks, wondering how they actually set that04:26
chipotletoafan: backup drives are a network drive for apple computers04:26
ExodusMrKeuner, it's in gconf04:27
chipotlenot backing up the media04:27
Guest47447does anyone know anything about n2n?04:27
ExodusMrKeuner, some apps use gconf, some don't04:27
ExodusMrKeuner, tis why you'll sometimes get some apps opening something else04:27
MrKeunerExodus, I see04:27
toafanchipotle, plan out if you want to share between the OSes without external drives.  eg in my laptop I have a share partition04:27
ExodusMrKeuner, it's kind of like proxy settings, they're also in gconf, but firefox has it in its preferences and doesn't use gconf's one04:27
toafanif it's a desktop that's probably moot04:28
chipotleyes, it's a desktop04:28
Exodusxj88, did you do a manual remount like I mentioned?04:28
Exodusxj88, ex: sudo mount -o remount,rw /dev/sdXx04:28
toafanI'd probably give windows more space on the SSD, if it's larger than like 20-30 fifs04:28
Exodusxj88, check what the kernel says of running that04:29
MrKeunerExodus, actually, setting in firefox did not work either04:29
toafanubuntu can only use stuff installed to compatible partitions (not on windows)04:29
toafanbut doesn't seem to need as much space04:30
ExodusMrKeuner, you said a gnome-launcher, what do you mean by that? a shortcut you created on the desktop or a menu?04:30
MrKeunerExodus, on desktop contect menu gives you a link to create a launcher04:30
MrKeunerExodus, they use xdg-open04:30
toafanI've got all my docs, configs etc on a separate partition, auto-mounted and symlinked -- that may be overkill. depends on updates04:31
MrKeunerlauncher is on desktop, a .desktop file of some sort04:31
Exoduswell, xdg-open uses gconf if I'm not mistaken04:31
ExodusMrKeuner, what Ubuntu release #?04:33
xj88Exodus: Weird problem. What I get is that /dev/sdb1 is not found in fstab or mtab (it is in fstab, I'm looking at it).04:33
=== REACKTOR is now known as JAVO
MrKeunerExodus, /desktop/gnome/url-handlers/http is updated with firefox when I choose firefox in gnome-default-applications-properties04:34
Exodusxj88, is this a removable drive?04:34
MrKeunerbut still chromium launches with warning that it's not the default04:34
xj88Exodus: Yeah, USB hard drive.04:34
sacarlsonxj88:  maybe not found with user in it?04:34

chipotletoafan: ya, thanks :)04:35
god-zotacMrKeuner:: thats a common problem with chrome / chromium04:35
MrKeunerExodus, firefox04:35
Exodusxj88, FUSE manages removable media04:35
ExodusMrKeuner, weird04:35
toafanwelcome :) glad I could help04:35
MrKeunergod-zotac, that it owns the browsing feature?04:35
crimsonmanewhat would be the most appropriate channel for my question? using mint 11, virtualbox4.0 is installed but i cannot find it.04:35
xj88Exodus: Done, but I'm still getting the error (when attempting the command you suggested) that it's not found in /etc/fstab or /etc/mtab04:36
god-zotacMrKeuner:: it sets as default browser for the desktop environment but it doesn't read from the same file to do the default check when opening chrom{e,ium}04:36
urfr332gOcrimsonmane, the mint channel04:36
Exodusxj88, well it's not going to work now that you removed it :P I'm guessing it's not mounted04:36
crimsonmaneurfr332g0 can you be more specific using the # symbol?04:36
urfr332gOcrimsonmane, or #vbox hard to tell what te problem actually is.04:37
Exodusxj88, fstab is a file for when your computer is booting and it pretty much says what should be mounted on boot04:37
Exodusxj88, mtab is a file that keeps track of what's mounted04:37
Exodusxj88, so if it's not in your mtab, it's not mounted04:37
MrKeunergod-zotac, then I'll have to remove chromium totally for now04:37
god-zotacMrKeuner:: why?04:37
MrKeuneri need firefox to be the default04:37
god-zotacMrKeuner:: all you have to do is set firefox as default in your Desktop Environment's default applications04:38
bludshotL3top I added that file like we talked about and now it does boot to desktop. But there's no task bar or 'start menu'04:38
MrKeunergod-zotac, I did, that does not worl04:38
xj88Exodus: That makes sense to me. But now when I run sudo mount /dev/sdb1 /media/external (which exists) I just get the error that it's not found in fstab. Why should that matter?04:38
urfr332gOgod-zotac, I told them that deemed to not register.04:38
Exodusxj88, and if it's not mounted, and you have files under that mount point, those files aren't in that removable drive, they're in whatever device has a higher mount point up in the tree, in any sane configuration it should be your root partition /04:38
L3topyou blowed that guy up real good04:38
L3toptry adding a new user04:38
MrKeunergod-zotac, you mean gnome-default-applications-properties, right?04:39
L3top I wonder if you could just copy everything from the skel dir04:39
L3topone second04:39
god-zotacMrKeuner:: i'm not using gnome, so i can't tell you step by step how to do it in gnome04:39
bludshotL3top maybe this is because i did dpkg-reconfigure lxdm?04:39
Exodusgod-zotac, he already has firefox configured there sadly.04:39
xj88Exodus: "sudo mount /dev/sdb1 /media/external" is now coming up with "warning: /media/external seems to be mounted read-only"04:40
god-zotacExodus:: sounds like a .desktop file just needs edited then..04:40
skypcehey guys,04:40
god-zotacnot sure if he is just wanting firefox to launch when clicking html files, or when clicking a link in another application like xchat/irc. or what04:40
skypcei have a good idea for preview windows04:40
skypcedo you want listen me?04:40

god-zotacExodus:: or if he is just simply trying to get the Web Browser  shortcut to launch firefox04:41
MrKeunergod-zotac, .desktop files that use xdg-open to open a url04:41
ExodusMrKeuner, what exactly is it you're trying to open, or what is this link trying to open?04:41
MrKeunerlet me post the file somewhere04:41
toafanArg...  trying to set up firefox to use an external irc program04:42
ExodusMrKeuner, does the desktop-file have something like: xdg-open "URL" ?04:42
bludshothey guys i booted into desktop and i have no task bar or start menu for some reason04:42
urfr332gOtoafan, chatzilla?04:42
MrKeunerExodus, god-zotac http://pastebin.com/QSR5Nqf604:42
toafanwent looking for a .desktop launcher to point it to.  no such luck04:42
skypcei think may be a good idea, create a compiz plugin for docky that in docky windows list show a real size screen of window when hover by docky window app list04:42
Exodusxj88, well, removing the file from fstab should have it appearing in your nautilus for normal user mounting04:43
toafanurpr332gO ATM I'm using Smuxi04:43
L3topbludshot: try cp -r /etc/skel/.[a-zA-Z0-9]* /home/YOURUSER; cp -r /etc/skel/* /home/YOURUSER04:43
Exodusxj88, I mean, removable hard drives are automagically open now, you don't have to add them to fstab04:43
L3topwhere YOURUSER is clearly your user04:43
urfr332gOskypce, let compiz know eh.04:43
god-zotacMrKeuner:: just change exo-web-browser.desktop Exec line to say firefox instead of the exo-open --launch WebBrowser  %u04:43
ninuxpizza :)04:43
god-zotacMrKeuner:: firefox %s   i think might be appropriate04:44
toafanurfr332gO also have irssi available if that helps :(04:44
xj88Exodus: I know. I only tried that when they stopped working.04:44
MrKeunergod-zotac, I cannot do that, there are zillions of launchers around04:44
bludshoti will go try that now04:44
god-zotaczillions of launchers?04:44
urfr332gOtoafan, chatzilla is FF plugin I use xchat myself.04:44
L3topmight wanna reboot after bludshot04:44
god-zotacif you want firefox to always open from anything then what i said should fix that04:44
MrKeunerlaunchers like the file I posted04:44
xj88Exodus: Here's the thing: This happens across four separate external drives. They *all* started mounting read-only on this machine all at once. The problem isn't the drives, it's gotta be some obscure config file that went and horked itself.04:44
skypceurfr332gO,  ok , it will be as example a window preview but maximized , when you hover over docky app list04:44
MrKeunergod-zotac, I don't want firefox to open all, I need the default browser then to open all04:45
skypceurfr332gO,  it will be great for people as me that have vision problems04:45
god-zotacso i thought you wanted firefox to be the default browser?04:45
MrKeunergod-zotac, thanks anyways04:45
MrKeunerfor now yes04:45
god-zotachrm.. when you want to change it to something else just edit that file and change it to what you want it to be..04:46
MrKeunerall right, thanks for trying to help04:46
toafanOK, try this: does anyone know how to connect to basicly random irc servers?04:46
urfr332gOskypce, you going to make this?04:46
god-zotachmm ok.. not sure what else you are wanting to hear..04:46
ExodusMrKeuner, open a terminal and type: xdg-open http://www.google.com04:46
ExodusMrKeuner, does it open in firefox or chrome?04:46
skypceno i want contribute with idea urfr332gO , i am themer , :S i do not know about development04:47
MrKeunerExodus, that opens firefox04:47
MrKeunerExodus, clicking on launcher file opens chromium with warning04:47
toafanI see "connect irc server port", I think I get that...04:47
skypcehaha , may be with your help :P04:47
toafandefault irc port?04:47
urfr332gOskypce, me neither. :)04:48
bludshotL3top how do i get to console04:48
ExodusMrKeuner, well, it seams like chromium is cached somewhere, because that .desktop file looks ok, try re-entering you session, relog04:48
L3topctrl alt f204:48
L3topshould drop you to tty204:48
MrKeunerExodus, i see04:48
god-zotacMrKeuner:: xdg-settings check --manual default-web-browser04:48
MrKeunerxdg-settings: command not found04:49
Exodusxj88, hmm, ok, try this, unmount all the drives, create a new user with admin privileges, loginto that user, and plug the drives04:49
Exodusxj88, that way you'll check if it's some bogus config in your userdir04:49
xj88Exodus: Sounds like fun. I'll give that a shot =)04:49
Exodusxj88, or if it's a system-wide thing04:49
god-zotacMrKeuner:: install it then04:49
god-zotacxdg-settings get default-web-browser04:50
motherbraincurious I am try understand in linux from the ground up I am curious what function is called first when linux is loaded ... i.e linux's kernel entry point. And I am also curious if I run linux os in a virtualbox if their is away to debug/set break point in it easily ... I have used boche in the passed but it really was a pain to set break points and dump function stack04:50
god-zotacMrKeuner:: sudo apt-get install xdg-utils04:50
MrKeunerthanks for help, Exodus, god-zotac04:50
god-zotacmotherbrain:: init is the root of all processes04:50
god-zotacmotherbrain:: bootloader loads the kernel. kernel loads the init process. then OS runs startup scripts04:51
motherbrainyes but their are functions called before init like what starts init ,..etc04:51
toafanwell.  Got my IRC problem fixed :) everything eles can wait04:51
Exodusmotherbrain, open the kernel source, init is the first process called after the kernel is loaded04:52
motherbrainbasically I want to know the kernel entry point.. init is just the parent process that starts other process04:52
bludshotL3top ctrl alt f2 doesnt do anything04:52
god-zotacmotherbrain:: usually in the kernel config there is a cmdline boot option or in your grub/lilo boot loader (or other loader)04:52
Exodusmotherbrain, the first function in the kernel is probably the main() one ;-)04:52
god-zotacmotherbrain:: have you took a look at the kernel configuration at all?04:53
motherbrainis it named main , or kmain , or some thing else ? where in the source can I find it04:53
god-zotacmotherbrain:: its easiest to see a good layout of how the kernel is put together if you use xconfig04:53
motherbrainwhich configurations ?04:53
Exodusmotherbrain, this might be of help to you: http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/linux/library/l-linux-kernel/04:53
god-zotacmotherbrain:: not sure what you are asking about the actual source.. the kernel is made up of tons of different pieces04:53
toafanbludshot: what distro? (missed it) try ctrl-alt-f1 ?04:53
bludshottoafan i tried ctrl-alt-f1  and ctrl-alt-del  nothing happens. I can move the mouse cursor around though. it's Lubuntu04:54
christinepea777i have the same issue as bludshot04:55
god-zotacmotherbrain:: are you wanting to know what the first thing the kernel is doing when it loads? or are you wanting to know how it calls init? or are you wanting to know how the kernel knows to call init?04:55
bludshotwell, i doubt its precisely the same04:55
bludshoti also have no task bar and start menu04:55
christinepea777except that i can't move the cursor. my screen freezes and I get distored colors until i press ctrl+alt+F704:55
motherbrainI just wanted to know when the bootloader loads the linux kernel what function is the first function it jumps to . "i.e the kernel entry point I would presume"04:55
bludshotI feel like i should just reboot, but i dont know how04:55
LinuxApprenticemotherbrain: init04:55
god-zotacinit isn't the first function it jumps to04:56
L3topbludshot: boot live dvd04:56
Exodusmotherbrain, this could also help: http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/linux/library/l-linuxboot/index.html04:56
toafanbludshot no idea what ctrl-alt-del does on linux. --f1 or --f2 should have hit you a tty though. got nada :(04:56
motherbrainI am wanting to look at the function source code that calls init04:56
bludshotL3top, before i boot to the live dvd, do i just hold the power button down to turn off the laptop?04:56
bludshotL3top ie: nothing nicer i can do eh?04:56
god-zotacmotherbrain:: look at the config_cmdline_linux  source code04:56
L3topif you press power button on pc will likely shut itself down.04:56
urfr332gOmotherbrain, here is a rather extensive grub 2 manual. http://www.gnu.org/software/grub/manual/grub.html04:56
bludshotL3top yes it will04:57
L3topnot without buttons or tty04:57
Exodusmotherbrain, When the bzImage (for an i386 image) is invoked, you begin at ./arch/i386/boot/head.S in the start assembly routine04:57
god-zotacmotherbrain:: that may not be the exact location let me make sure04:57
L3topI dont mean hold it... just press it04:57
L3topit SHOULD try and exit gracefully04:57
bludshotpressing it doesnt do anything04:57
bludshoti tried04:57
xj88Exodus: Shiny new admin account has same problem =(04:57
L3topwell... might give it some time04:57
L3topas you cant see what it may or may not be doing04:57
Exodusxj88, so it's a system-wide thing, sadly04:57
xj88Exodus: Hopefully that narrows down possible causes?04:57
bludshotso you think i should boot to live dvd and then cp those skel files right04:58
xj88Exodus: I mean, there must be a short list of things that can do that to all accounts.04:58
Exodusxj88, FUSE controls the automounting of the file-systems un userland04:58
Exodusxj88, start from there, check the kernel logs again, compare the logs to the machine that actually is mounting the hard drives correctly04:59
god-zotacmotherbrain:: in the kernel config:  this is the configuration option  where you define where init is located:  CONFIG_CMDLINE     it also has the option to read the cmdline mode / init from the boot loader.  take a look at the headers and the .c code that is used for those config options, and i'm sure you will be able to tell what you are wondering04:59
friskdHey guys, i'm trying to track down some details about why a process is dying04:59
L3topk... hold it04:59
Exodusxj88, check what versions of each package it uses in each distro, fuse, mount, your base-files05:00
friskdI'm running a command using capistrano, and it executes a script, i see it start, (watching in htop), but then it does05:00
LinuxApprenticemotherbrain: do you like metroid?05:00
Exodusxj88, try updating your system, might be a bug05:00
universoExodus: The ____ command shows you the entire path and file name for anything containing the text string you indicate. ... It ended up being slocate! Thanks for the help and goodnight/day, wherever you are05:00
friskdis there a way to monitor what affects a running process?05:00
xj88Exodus: Fully updated, sadly, and this has been going on for over a week, during which time it's been updated repeatedly =(05:00
Exodusxj88, what fs are the hard drive partitions?05:02
Exodusxj88, ext? fat? ntfs?05:02
xj88Exodus: Two NTFS, two ext3.05:02
xj88Exodus: All with the same problem.05:03
Exodusxj88, connect the drives, manual mount with specifics, remember to unmount first05:03
god-zotacfriskd:: the process in question will need to be built from source with debugging symbols enabled, and you will need to use gdb to debug the trace on it, unless it is giving you something other than SegFault output when ran in a terminal05:03
Gallomimiahi can someone help me with a strange problem. i've got a script called ftpmirror which causes a segfault in the perl interpreter. apparently it's known and fixed according to some pages i found through google. what I don't understand is what perl version i have installed, or how to get the bug fix incorporated into my system and make this script work. any help is appreciated05:04
xj88Exodus: Have been trying. Even when specifying rw, I get "mount: warning: /media/Seagate Replica seems to be mounted read-only."05:04
god-zotacGallomimia:: perl -v05:04
god-zotacGallomimia:: will tell you the version you have installed05:04
Exodusxj88, remember to unmount them first since when you plug them in they're already getting mounted by fuse05:05
Gallomimiaah yes. how simple :)05:05
Exodusxj88, run 'mount' alone to check where they're mounted or what their device points are /dev/sdx05:05
Exodusxj88, run: umount /media/DEVICE05:05
Exodusxj88, or: umount /dev/DEVICE05:05
god-zotacGallomimia:: if the fix requires a patch to some code you might want to find a .deb for it that is already patched, or you will need to get the perl source code, patch it, and then compile it, and build a .deb for it05:05
Exodussudo those05:05
__machinetrying to keep a log of the steps i need to take a configure a new ubuntu vps... when i have to do things like add several lines to the end of a config file... is there an easier way than multiple echo "..." >> filename commands? can i do a single command and then just paste all the lines into stdin and hit ctrl d to finish?05:05
Exodusxj88, then run the mount commands05:05
Exodusxj88, example: sudo mount -t ntfs -o users /dev/DEVICE /mnt/DEVICE05:06
god-zotacGallomimia:: if there isn't a patched .deb out there already, it would be nice for you to share the .deb you generate with the community to keep everyone else from needing to manually patch the source code :)05:06
din__machine: try cat > file.txt05:07
din__machine: or script file.txt05:07
__machinedin: perfect, thank you05:07
dini personally like script better05:07
Gallomimiagod-zotac: thanks for the tip. i'm reading the bug reports that i searched down yesterday and it seems that they're made. but i am confused about the versioning numbers. fixed in 5.10.1-905:08
Gallomimiawhat's the -9 mean? and is that the same as my version which is 5.10.105:08
xj88Exodus: Still I get "mount: warning: /media/Seagate Replica seems to be mounted read-only."05:08
god-zotacrevision 9 of 5.10.105:08
xj88Exodus: Maybe my fuse-daemon has been screwed up?05:08
god-zotacperl version 5.10.1  ubuntu release 905:08
xj88Exodus: But that shouldn't matter after I've manually unmounted.05:09
Gallomimiathis is on debian.org actually05:09
Exodusxj88, do you get that warning after running the mount command manually?05:09
Exodusxj88, exactly05:09
god-zotacGallomimia:: then it would be fixed in debian's 9th revision of the perl-5.10.1 pkg05:09
Gallomimiaclarifying to some, but not to me. what revision do i have??05:09
xj88Exodus: Just seems weird. It's like something, somewhere, has decided that everything will be mounted r/o and even sudo can't make it change its mind.05:10
god-zotacGallomimia:: apt-cache show perl|grep Version05:10
Exodusxj88, it's weird just very weird, maybe you're typing something wrong?05:10
Exodusxj88, be sure you're unmounting the drives05:11
xj88Exodus: I promise that I am unmounting them successfully.05:11
Gallomimiahah. one revision old...05:11
Exodusxj88, also, retry remounting: mount -o remount,rw /mnt/point05:12
stroxiscan ubuntu software RAID be seen under windows05:12
Gallomimiaalright. in order to get a newer version, what should i do? will apt-get help, or are there other procedures?05:12
god-zotacGallomimia:: for what it is worth, on 12.04 precise  the version is at: 5.14.2-6ubuntu105:12
Exodusxj88, run: mount, pastebin the corresponding lines to your drives05:12
xj88Exodus: Should I try that remounting when it's mounted or after umounting it?05:12
Exodusxj88, when it's mounted05:12
Gallomimiaholy crap....05:12
motherbrainNo, this had what I need and wanted http://duartes.org/gustavo/blog/post/kernel-boot-process05:13
Gallomimialet's pause for a moment. the server i'm running is ubuntu server 10.04.405:13
god-zotacGallomimia:: first i would see if you can find a backport of 5.14 from precise for 11.10 if thats what you are using05:13
god-zotacGallomimia:: oh. well in that case i'd consider an update ;)05:13
Exodusmotherbrain, last link I gave you had that info as well05:13
Gallomimiathat was my question05:13
Gallomimiaapt-get dist-upgrade?05:14
Gallomimiaor... damn i feel like such a noob :P05:14
god-zotacGallomimia:: you will have to edit the /etc/apt/sources.list first05:14
motherbrainapparently it all starts in /arch/x86/boot and moves all the way down to init_post which searchs for init and gives it PID = 105:14
bw___how do i change window managers?05:14
god-zotacGallomimia::   do cp /etc/apt/sources.list /etc/apt/sources.list.bak05:14
Gallomimiaah i'm glad you're smart05:15
god-zotacGallomimia:: then see what the codename is for 10.04, as i don't recall off the top of my head05:15
god-zotacGallomimia:: i would want to upgrade to 10.10 in one step, then to 11.04, then to 11.1005:16
god-zotacdon't just jump straight from 10.04 to 11.1005:16
xj88Exodus: Still trying to get at pastebin. Internet is weird here. Whole different set of issues; don't ask.05:16
motherbrainmakes since the only things when porting to a new arch apart from drivers would be in recoding up to kernel_start05:16
Exodusxj88, did you try remount?05:17
Gallomimiathis is good advice. one question before i proceed. it's an active production server with clients connected. will it cause problems? should i wait till a less active time?05:17
motherbrainand some times not even that much'05:17
blackshirthow to change text pattern string on file with sed ?05:17
god-zotacGallomimia:: yes for sure, this is going to be a major upgrade to almost every package on the system05:18
motherbrainAnyway anybody know of any good kernel debuggers05:18
god-zotacmotherbrain:: like strace ?05:18
motherbrainno I am taking about something that would allow me to step thru the booting of an os in virtual pc05:19
Lyte101Any links on how to get ubuntu 11.10 hdmi output to detect my tv?05:19
Gallomimiait's a vds, and i think i can contain the apt command within screen which is nice05:19
Exodusmotherbrain, KDB05:19
god-zotacmotherbrain:: build the kernel with all debugging to printk enabled05:19
motherbrainwhat and where is KDB05:19
Exodusmotherbrain, http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/linux/library/l-kdbug/05:20

Gallomimiabut hey, great05:20
god-zotacExodus:: you work for ibm?  noticed that every link you have gave comes from ibm :P05:20
Exodusdeveloper-works just has great articles05:21
Exodusthey're also first place in a google search05:21
Exodusor right up there05:21
xj88Exodus: Yep, same error. Working on pastebin.05:21
Gallomimiaalright so for me, step 1 upgrade to 10.10 so i searched and got https://help.ubuntu.com/community/MaverickUpgrades05:21
ExodusAnd developer works has epic content05:21
Gallomimiait recommends... uh05:21
Exodusgod-zotac, wouldn't mind working at IBM in a couple of years though hehe, after I get bored of my current job05:22
Gallomimiapastebin sucks :( use codepad05:23
Gallomimiaoh its decent for error logs05:23
god-zotacgist.github.com is good05:23
Exodusit's uhm, in the /topic05:23
god-zotacblah.. paste.ubuntu.com is rather n00bish if you are seeking help on something that isn't particularly related to the distro ;)05:24
Exodustrue, but it has great syntax highlighting to pick from05:24
Exodushas a bunch of options at least05:24
ExodusI say use w/e works atm05:25
xj88Exodus: paste.ubuntu.com/858779/05:25
ExodusA lot of people are complaining at pastebin.com lately05:25
Q_ContinuumSo.  Landscape.  I can't afford it for my home machines, but need that capability to keep using it.  Are there any Free self-hosted alternatives, or do I go over to CentOS for my Linux non-Desktop use?05:25
Exodusxj88, just because you umount, doesn't mean it's actually getting unmounted05:25
Exodusxj88, check to see if it's actually getting unmount first05:26
neersightedQ_Continuum: Status2k?05:26
Gallomimiagod-zotac: do you recommend using update-manager-core or editing sources.list for a noob like me?05:26
Exodusxj88, like, it won't unmount if the FS is busy05:26
xj88Exodus: It drops out of the sidebar and nautilus. How can I check?05:26
Exodusxj88, just run 'mount' alone05:27
Q_Continuumneersighted: hadn't heard of it, looking at it now.  Thanks05:27
neersightedlook in the mountpoint?05:27
Exodusxj88, but if it drops from the sidebar should be noticeable05:27
god-zotacGallomimia:: i don't even know what update-manager-core is for.. i always do things by hand.. i don't rely on GUI utilities to get me through :)05:27
Exodusrunning: mount alone gives a detail of all the mounted partitions05:27
Gallomimiapretty sure it's CLI05:27
JadedJacobHow can I install GRUB onto a floppy disk05:27
Exodusif it's not unmounted, you can force it using: umount -f05:28
JadedJacoband then make it boot via my usb flash drive?05:28
god-zotacGallomimia:: its not hard to do something like sed -i 's/oneiric/precise/g' /etc/apt/sources.list;apt-get update; apt-get dist-upgrade05:28
urfr332gOJadedJacob, why05:28
=== Lupinedk is now known as lupinedk
JadedJacobi have a laptop that doesn't boot from USB/CD05:28
FlannelGallomimia: use do-release-upgrade.05:28
urfr332gOJadedJacob, is it to old?05:29
* Gallomimia looks up what sed does05:29
JadedJacobathlon xp mobile05:29
urfr332gOfor a usb JadedJacob05:29
FlannelGallomimia: You don't want to go the sed route.05:29
ExodusWell, that's it for me, 1:00AM, gotta get up early for work, sorry we couldn't get that fixed xj8805:29
xj88Exodus: Definitely unmounting.05:30
Gallomimiaflannel i think you're right. it's just above my head05:30
xj88Exodus: Thanks for trying.05:30
god-zotacGallomimia:: sed == stream editor     its very powerful for tons of things05:30
FlannelGallomimia: Well, it's not even the optimum way to do it, so I'm not sure why you would even want to try.05:30
Gallomimiai can sort of see what it's doing but.... probably unwise for me to do it.05:30
Exodusxj88, last thing checking is /etc/fstab and /etc/mtab for any appearance of those drives05:30
Exoduso/ bye05:30
Gallomimiamaybe if i hired god-zotac to be my server admin it would be better ;)05:30
Gallomimiaunfortunately the pay is only 5 dollars per year05:31
god-zotacGallomimia:: please do!! i'm in need of a good admin job05:31
god-zotacin that case nvm05:31
FlannelGallomimia: No, that other method has no benefits to the do-release-upgrade method.05:31
god-zotacFlannel:: sure it does, it gives him a good understanding of how things are suppose to work05:31
Gallomimiathe only benefit i can see is that it's super fast05:31
god-zotacFlannel:: not just some script that does things for you ;)05:31
Gallomimiaand now i know what sed is. and i might go and learn about it one day05:32
Exodusxj88, ohh, one last thing05:32
Exodusxj88, something is probably already mounted there in /media/external05:32
basilichello, all, I tried to configure my ubuntu server to standby hard disk, I have add in hdparm.conf the line  spindown_time, when the server start, the harddisk are in standby, but if i wake up, it's never go to standby again05:32
Exodusxj88, mount ur stuff elsewhere05:32
FlannelGallomimia: the majority of the time is spent downloading and installing, both methods do that the same.05:32
xj88Exodus: Sure, I'll give that a shot.05:32
Exodusxj88, "mount: warning: /media/external seems to be mounted read-only." is just saying there is something already mounted there05:32
Gallomimiafaster to give the commands05:32
Exodusxj88, meaning you already have that mount point used05:32
Gallomimianot faster to complete05:33
Exodusxj88, run "mount" alone, learn to read it and check the mount points, and unmount and mount appropriately05:33
Flannelgod-zotac: Sure, except you forgot about any sources in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ and you didn't ensure that appropriate metapackages were installed prior to upgrade.05:33
ExodusBye again o/05:33
travis_gnome-ppp is awesome05:33
god-zotacGallomimia:: im sure what he is telling you is the Ubuntu preferred method, but the method I told you has never failed me.. i'm not really an ubuntu guy anyway, i prefer more interactive distributions instead of the automated ones. but nonetheless ubuntu has good uses for tons of users, or certain systems alone05:33
Flannelgod-zotac: and I don't see how "run these two commands I gave you" is any different than "run this one command", it doesn't teach you anything else.05:34
Gallomimiawait.... learn? that defeats the purpose of this handholding channel!05:34
asdeI have a problem05:34
urfr332gOJadedJacob, maybe if you explained your goal what OS is on the computer, and the actual limitations regarding booting a cd or usb we can get you the best option05:34
god-zotacFlannel:: yep, it teached him where his sources where at, it teached him that sed was useful :)05:34
Gallomimiai didn't personally chose the distro for this server. but it's working just fine. i think i would prefer debian05:34
god-zotacFlannel:: in that case he could use sed on * in sources.d  also05:34
asdecertain program could not work in my lubuntu05:35
Gallomimiaalright geeks extraordinaire.... pissing match over ><05:35
Flannelgod-zotac: Yes, he should, except for when he shouldn't.  Again, the do-release-upgrade method is much more robust, please don't steer people towards methods that could turn out poorly.05:35
god-zotacGallomimia:: might as well stick with ubuntu as debian.. not really that much difference at all in terms of package management, and ubuntu usually has a better selection of packages than debian05:35
god-zotacFlannel:: how can it turn out poorly??05:36
Gallomimiano we have no reason to reformat the server and start over. that's dumb.05:36
motherbrainhow is kernel debugging different then fewing what is in dmesg ... is it you have more control and can kprint at each step ,...etc etc05:36
Gallomimiaalright. here's what do-release-upgrade has yeilded: Checking for a new ubuntu release05:36
GallomimiaNo new release found05:36
asdeWhen I click open on txt files nothing happen and also for some programs from the start menu won't open up. I'm using lubuntu. No one in lubuntu channel05:36
Gallomimiaso.... not all that prefered :(05:36
FlannelGallomimia: What version of Ubuntu are you on?05:36
god-zotacFlannel:: please don't get a flame war started because i recommend someone the more advanced way to do something over the ubuntu recommended n00b way of doing something.. gosh05:36
FlannelGallomimia: and which version are you trying to get to?05:37
Gallomimiaand i don't really care about upgrading except that i'm trying to use a perl script which segfaults perl. so i need updates to perl which are in new releases05:37
Flannelgod-zotac: It's more crude, not more advanced.05:37
Gallomimiaany version where this script works :P05:37
god-zotacok.. w/e05:37
Gallomimiathe words you guys are applying to these different methods are subjective, not objective, and biased.05:38
FlannelGallomimia: By default, 10.04 will only upgrade to 12.04 (LTS to LTS), so if you want to upgrade to 10.10 (which isn't LTS) or anything later (10.10 and then to 11.04, and then potentially to 11.10), you'll need to tell it that you're willing to jump off the LTS releases.05:38
god-zotacGallomimia:: really it doesn't matter..05:38
Gallomimiaone takes more skill, and can take less effort05:38
urfr332gOGallomimia, and one is a user and one is a opp choose your words carefully. :)05:39
int19hisnt all thats important that the server does as you want it to ?05:39
xj88Does anyone here have experience moving away from Unity? I'm just ready to be done with it. Is the modern gnome worth pursuing?05:39
god-zotacGallomimia:: the reason i told you that method, was because you asked me how to do it.. i could have lied and said "i don't know" instead i gave you the method i personally use, and i did clarify that it wasn't the ubuntu preferred method.. so i don't see what this goons issue is05:39
motherbraincurious must you recompile the kernel to use Kernel debugging or is their another way like a patch. I really don't want to have to wait for things to recompile / recompile the stuff right now. But if that is the only way then that is the only way05:39
int19hxj88: gnome3 is just as bad05:39
FlannelGallomimia: If you can last another two months (until late April), then you'll be able to upgrade straight from 10.04 to 12.04.  But it sounds like you may not have that option.05:40
friskdok thanks god-zotac05:41
Muellixj88: well, you might just give GNOME3 a try. I, for one, like it.05:41
xj88Muelli: I like evilwm.05:42
int19hgnome3 feels like an obfuscated unity too me05:42
FlannelGallomimia: So, you'll want to edit /etc/update-manager/release-upgrades and change it from "ask=lts" to "ask=normal", then once you've done that, you can do-release-upgrade to go to 10.10.  Unfortunately, 10.10 does run out of support in April, so you'll likely want to upgrade further.05:42
manojhanssorry for budding in...but gnome3 is not that bad...05:42
JadedJacobI want my laptop to boot off a 'live install usb' but there is no option in the bios to boot off USB05:42
Gallomimiaurfr332gO: never speak differently to a human being just because they have more authority than another human being.05:42
LoganShawHey is this general help channel for ubuntu?05:42
urfr332gOint19h, totally different development teams05:42
MuelliLoganShaw: yes :)05:43
GallomimiaLoganShaw: yes.05:43
urfr332gOGallomimia, lol you will learn that hierarchies exist my friend.05:43
manojhansu might need to update your bios05:43
int19hi know, i do not like gnome3, unity ive learned to live with. i thought gnome3 looked slick, then i tried to use it.... wow, whadda mess05:43
Flannelurfr332gO: That's really not the case.05:43
god-zotacurfr332gO::   hierarchy of knowledge means nothing when it comes to channel operator status..05:43
urfr332gOFlannel, I know here it doesn't, but the comment was broader.05:44
LoganShawOkay excellent, I would like to dual boot ubuntu with windows 7, but if I remove ubuntu will the bootloader countdown still be there?05:44
xj88I hear that Gnome3 has a decent "classic" theme that actually makes it useable. Can anyone verify this?05:44
god-zotacurfr332gO:: his comment was for the methods, not for the users. he wasn't meaning an insult05:44
Gallomimiaurfr332gO: to speak differently to someone just because they have more authority implies that you are speaking to someone without authority in some kind of condescending way, just because they won't be able to reprimand you. this is a foley. as for the heirarchies and such, i choose to ignore them for reasons of my own.05:44
Muellixj88: yeah, that's probably the default ;-) Very classy I'd say05:45
xj88Muelli: Cool, thanks. Perhaps I will give that a shot.05:45
urfr332gOgod-zotac, nor was it taken as such nor my original comment directed as such, it was pure ego on all of your parts.05:45
Gallomimianot entirely unfounded, the ego is05:46
manojhans@LoganShaw: i dont think it will still be there...after you remove ubuntu05:46
Gallomimiathanks for the help so far guys...05:46
urfr332gOnot that there is anything wrong with that. :)05:46
LoganShawbecause last time I uninstalled ubuntu the ugly bootloader and countdown timer was still there, the choice was between windows 7 or windows 7.05:47
urfr332gOLoganShaw, if you remove ubuntu you will have no boot.05:47
int19hLoganShaw: write a default boot loader after you remove ubuntu05:48
eblumeHello. I have a headless server install that is using a wired ethernet connector. All of a sudden I can't connect to the internet. I can access the LAN just fine, but can't get out. Other computers on the LAN can get out just fine. Any ideas?05:48
int19hor it will remain05:48
urfr332gOLoganShaw, unless it is a wubi install.05:48
int19hhes talking about grub05:48
int19hgrub will still be there if he installed ot to the mbr05:48
urfr332gOint19h, if you have only W7 and ubuntu grub will not work ig ubuntu is removed, in a dual boot not a wubi.05:49
LoganShawokay so use wubi to avoid grub cruff?05:49
urfr332gOLoganShaw, no reload tghe ms bootloader to the mbr.05:49
int19hummmm, yes it will05:49
urfr332gOint19h, grub needs the ubuntu grub files to work.05:50
LoganShawokay thanks.05:50

eblumeDoes anyone have any tips on where to start with diagnosing a (headless - no X11 running) networking issue where LAN works fine but no Internet connection? (Other machines are negotiating the gateway just fine.)05:51
christinepea777anyone know how to run sound eXchange in the background? when i type play file.mp3 &    it will start the sox program but in stopped mode and bg won't bring it out.05:51

Muelliwell eblume. How do you know that you can't reach the internet?05:56
urfr332gOint19h, yeah the devloper himself says don't run long term, it can be transfered to a partition though.05:56
Blue1eblume: wireless, or wired?05:56
LoganShawdoes ubuntu need a swap file even with 8gb of ram?05:56
int19hi did try out the wubi thing one time, when i actualy used the uninstaller, the grub loader went away, so i dont know how he uninstalled it, but it shouldnt of left a grub loader giving him the option of windows, and windows05:56
Blue1LoganShaw: heavens no05:57
eblumeMuelli: It is unable to resolve any names or ping any IP addresses that aren't on the local subnet.05:57
eblumeBlue1: wired.05:57
Blue1LoganShaw: if you're swapping 8 g you'v e got serious issues.  I would however maybe make a 2-3G swap file.05:57
Muellieblume: can you pastebin ifconfig -a? and /etc/resolv.conf?05:57
urfr332gOint19h, probably had another grub distro is my guess.05:57
Muellieblume: and route -n05:58
urfr332gOmore then one05:58
XenethLoganShaw, Swap is also used for hibernate05:58
eblumeMuelli: sure, stand by05:58
LoganShawubuntu absolutely needs a swap file? because I was told the swap file should be two times the size of RAM, which is madness I think05:58
int19hurfr332gO: possibly05:58
int19hLoganShaw: that was an old convention05:58
JadedJacobOK, how about this option.05:59
MuelliLoganShaw: well. you probably don't need to swap. But I'd better be safe than sorry.05:59

JadedJacobI'VE TRIED plop boot loader, it just freezes06:03
Muellihm eblume. interesting indeed.06:03
Muellieblume: and well, I'd try to add the router by hand for testing purposes, i.e. ip route add dev eth0 or the like. I don't know the correct syntax, it's weird anyway.06:03
urfr332gOJadedJacob, what is the gpu and cpu on the computer06:03
urfr332gOchip and ram06:04
Muellieblume: but after you've smashed two or three keyboards because of the frustration, you'll be able to add a new route and delete the old .0 one.06:04
eblumeMuelli: is DHCP inserting this bogus .0 router?06:04
Muellieblume: maybe. We don't know yet. Let's do one thing after another. First trying to manually configure the route and check whether that works.06:05
eblumeMuelli: Ok, so I guess I'll need to dig up the correct incantation to get ip to route to the right address?06:05
Muellieblume: yes. There is "ip" which is supposed to be easy...06:06
eblumeMuelli: I just rebooted and route -n changed. Would you like to see the new one?06:06
Xenetheblume, are you talking about a cisco rtr with an IOS?06:06

Muelliah, interesting eblume. Sure, the old route didn't have a default gateway, stupid me...06:08

eblumeMuelli: is that something we can fix? I'm in the dark here06:08
eblumeMuelli: oh wow it did I didn't even bother trying! What happened?06:08
eblumeMuelli: I've rebooted dozens of times.06:09
eblumeMuelli: not sure why this one fixed everything?!06:09
=== neersighted|AFK is now known as neersighted
Muellieblume: now you do have have a default gateway, i.e. the machine that your linux will send packets to in case it doesn't know a better route. And well, the reasons lie in the dark of your copper cables I presume.06:09
Xenetheblume, In line 6, it looks like the is being routed to IP
Muellieblume: FWIW: I have weird issues with my laptop, i.e. sometimes the kernel doesn't see DHCP packets, although they are on the wire. I doubt that's your issue though.06:10
eblumeXeneth: standby, I'll confirm that.06:10
eblumeMuelli: no you're probably right. My router decided to completely lose all of its EEPROM today, like a factory reset.06:10
eblumeMuelli: I'm worried now that it is dieing. :(06:10
Muellieblume: you might want to check NetworkManager for details, i.e. let it produce a log and check it once you have this failure again.06:11

stiltzkinHi folks. Hoping someone here knows a thing or two about Ubuntu's performance with flash media. I experience extremely slow file transfers when using any flash-based device, including thumb drives, camera cards, my phone, etc. Usually for, say, a 400MB file, the first 390MB will copy over in seconds, but the last 10MB appears to take much, much longer - sometimes over a half an hour for instance. Anyone know what causes this and if it06:19
stiltzkin can be fixed?06:19
Muellihammommah: as you've seen: lpstat -a lists you your printers.06:19
bobo37773stiltzkin: Does your bios support disabling legacy usb support?06:19
hammommahwhy is it different? is my question06:19
Muellihammommah: why should it?06:20
Muellior better: shouldn't it06:20
stiltzkinbobo37773, not sure, is that something that should be disabled?06:20
bobo37773stiltzkin: it may improve your transfer speeds06:20
Muelliwell stiltzkin. I think this is a feature. I guess the everything that's about to be written gets cached. And at some stage it actually needs to be flushed to the device. And when nothing needs to be written to memory but the device only, it might feel like it slows down.06:21
hammommahi was under impression these basic shell commands are similar with all flavours of linux? ubuntu uses ipstat instead im guessing06:21
Muellithere was a command to show the transfer speed on the actual block device. I forgot which it was though. But, stiltzkin, you might be able to find it and check the i/o rate on the device.06:22
Muellihammommah: instead of what?06:22
stiltzkinMuelli, I don't have this problem in Windows with the same devices though. File operations are smooth and actually are a reasonable indication of how long the transfer is going to take. If I remember correctly on previous installations the copy dialog always showed the transfer speed, and it would drop off substantially toward the end of the transfer.06:22
justin_thanks CFHowlett, i will check it out06:22
CFHowlettjustin_   good luck.06:23
hammommahhmmm good point. wehy doesnt echo $PRINTER work then?06:23
Muellihammommah: simply because nobody set that environment variable for you. If you want that, export it yourself in your ~/.bashrc or /etc/profile or the like.06:23

CFHowlettGitzo   greetigns06:25
chipotleso, i just installed windows7 and then ubuntu, and now how do i get grub to let me decide between windows or ubuntu?06:25
stiltzkinMuelli, I appreciate it...I just don't think this is a "feature," it really seems like a consistent problem with how flash transfers are handled. I'd think it's my hardware but I've had this problem on several different machines, and several versions of Ubuntu06:25
bobo37773stiltzkin: probably a kernel regression. You can look up some grub options for your kernel.06:25
CFHowlettchipotle   when you boot, you don't see the grub menu?06:26
Random833what's a good password management tool? i tried keepass on mono and didn't like it06:26

chipotleCFHowlett: no06:26
urfr332gORandom833, pwgen06:26
chipotlesometimes it appears, every other boot it seems06:26
stiltzkinurfr332gO, so when you copy a large file to a flash drive, it does not freeze up toward the end of the transfer or wait until the very end to do the actual copying?06:26
MuelliRandom833: seahorse06:26
Xenethchipotle, It should come up with the menu of choices before loading OS..06:26
Xenethchipotle, In Ubuntu, do you see the partition of your windows?06:27
urfr332gOstiltzkin, no and I have usb2 multiple thumbs and 2 external HD's06:27
chipotleXeneth: it says unallocated06:27
Muellistiltzkin: well. I don't think I have this issue using GNOME. But then again, I don't use that flash media. And I doubt it's a genuine flash problem. Only a special case where actual writing is slow (hence the slowdown with the cache flush)06:27
CFHowlettchipotle   chipotle do you multiples hdd's or something?06:27
chipotleCFHowlett: now that are plugged in06:27
urfr332gOstiltzkin, but this is usually media like movies and music if that helps.06:27
stiltzkinurfr332gO, interesting. Yeah this only happens to me with flash-based media though, I have plenty of external hard disks that never show this problem.06:27
Muelliand yaeh stiltzkin. Your time-left indication might be buggy. So it might be worth reporting a bug.06:28
Xenethchipotle, I am getting the feeling you may have deleted windows partion when installing Ubuntu06:28
chipotleXeneth: how, i resized the partition and installed on the other partition06:28
chipotleXeneth: would grub appear only if i had multiple OSes?06:28
chipotleor does it always appear?06:28
stiltzkinMuelli, that's what I thought as well, but still...20 minutes to copy 417MB to a flash drive? That is not USB 2.0 speed at all.06:28
bobo37773stiltzkin: does the same thing happen if you foramt your flash drive to ext4 or similar?06:28
Muellihm. true stiltzkin. Maybe check whether it's connected via USB 1. lsusb or the like06:29

Gitzousing wubi..  can you use that to run ubuntu inside windows just as you would in virtualbox?06:29
Xenethchipotle, It does not alway's get installed.  My laptop is Ubuntu only, no grub.  That's why It sounds like the deleted partition, and the unallocated space.06:29
bobo37773stiltzkin: Have you tested it?06:29
Muellihm. no. lsusb doesn't seem to help. But you'll figure out.06:30

=== lupinedk is now known as Lupinedk
urfr332gOGitzo, wubi runs as a boot not a virtual,06:30
stiltzkinbobo37773, not for a while, but I think when I originally had this problem I tried formatting a thumb drive to ext3/ext4 to see if that helped and it did not06:30
bobo37773stiltzkin: oh okay gotcha06:30
Gitzourfr332gO: ok06:30
Xenethchipotle, yes, I do not know the details, but it installs automatic with my desktop.06:31
stiltzkinbobo37773, in any case that won't help for my phone sdcard, has to be fat32, as do most of my drives for compatibility with Windows :/06:31
bobo37773stiltzkin: I had this problem a while back when I had my old laptop. I understand the frustration06:31
urfr332gOGitzo, it is just a file in windows, but you can virtualbox in windows.06:31
CFHowlettGitzo   wubi is NOT a long-term ubuntu solution - so sayeth the developer.06:31
bobo37773stiltzkin: I tried everything and there was no solution for me. But, I could not disable legacy usb in my bios either.06:31

neonkidxyHey I have a 700mb CD-R how do I burn ubuntu to it?06:32
Blue1CFHowlett: got a minute?  the computer I had the notes on how to install the kanji character set died yesterday (bad sata controller) do you still have that old pastebin address?06:33
CFHowlettneonkidxy   from windows or ubuntu06:33
hiexpomakara, you useing compiz06:33
chipotleXeneth: if it's not installed can i install it?06:33
chipotlei think the intel boot manager is getting in the way...06:33
CFHowlettBlue1   hey what's up06:33
makarahiexpo: yes06:33
neonkidxyI mean windows06:33
stiltzkinbobo37773, I just think it's weird that a) this only happens with flash media, and b) that it always seems to be the same percentage shown on the file copy dialog when it freezes. For a 400MB file it'll be 390MB. For a 300MB file it'll be 290MB. Usually a 10-15MB difference06:33
hiexpothan it works06:33
Xenethchipotle, Likely, but would need to ask someone with more knowledge then I.06:34
hiexpomakara, compiz = 3d06:34
Blue1CFHowlett: computer died overnight before daily backups.06:34
neonkidxyThe .iso is 709mb and I only have a 700mb CD-R06:34
CFHowlettBlue1 you're having a rough weekend...06:34
urfr332gOneonkidxy, should fit cd have a little of a buffer06:34
Blue1neonkidxy: is that the latest release of ubuntu?06:34
hiexpothan get a dvd06:34
makarahiexpo: I have virtualbox with Win7 and Autocad, but Autocad not using 3D hardware acceleration06:34
stiltzkinbobo37773, oh, and the other thing I've tried is using the plain cp command...takes roughly the same amount of time. Far slower than to any hard drive I own.06:34
Blue1CFHowlett: and how.   I think I found a pci card that will work -06:34
CFHowlettBlue1  seeking the link ...06:35
neonkidxyI don't really like the unity interface so I'm going with 10.10, are you sure it'll burn okay?06:35
makarahiexpo: VirtualBox settings checkbox for 3D is on06:35
hiexpomakara, we don't support windows here06:35
bobo37773stiltzkin: I had more luck with cp and rsync when I had this problem then with the gui.06:35
Escherialhey, does anyone happen to know of a way to suspend in ubuntu and then restart into windows?06:35
Blue1neonkidxy: yeah a cd is plenty big for 10.1006:35
Escheriali guess it'd be what people usually call "hibernating", e.g. serializing the contents of RAM to a file to be restored when the OS boots up again06:36
neonkidxyThe cd only have 700 mb and the .iso is 709 though06:36
Blue1neonkidxy: which iso for what release?06:36
neonkidxyThe regular one for 10.1006:36
CFHowlettBlue1   this solution still seems to work06:37
urfr332gOneonkidxy, 10.10 end of life meaning no support April 201206:37

neonkidxyAnd I just burn it like normal?06:39
CFHowlettGitzo   to install what06:39
urfr332gOneonkidxy, burn as a image at slow speed.06:40
Blue1neonkidxy: no you can't just copy an iso to a cd -- what programme ru using to create the cd?06:40
hiexpothat should have never happened06:40
neonkidxyOkay, I usually use a flash drive so this is new territory for me.06:40
GitzoCFHowlett: to install anything..  + updates..  im just wondering if there is ?06:40
neonkidxyInfra recorder06:40
Blue1neonkidxy: than why not use a flash drive - hang on I have a recipe06:40
Escherialhiexpo: regardless, it has nothing to do with windows; it could be any other operating system that i'm dual booting06:41
Escherialor say that i just want to hibernate the machine and shut it down to conserve power...how would i do that?06:41
CFHowlettGitzo   sudo apt-get install // sudo apt-get upgrade ??06:41
urfr332gOneonkidxy, infra recorder will burn a image just uise slowest speed.06:41
neonkidxyThe computer I want to put it on won't support booting from a flash drive06:42
Blue1neonkidxy: http://pkill-9.com/creating-a-usb-flash-drive-for-a-debian-install/06:43
Blue1neonkidxy: then skip the recipe I just gave you06:43
neonkidxyI know how to install from a flashdrive06:43
urfr332gOneonkidxy, you can use plop install it in windows to boot a thumb.06:43
urfr332gOneonkidxy, http://www.plop.at/06:44
CFHowlettneonkidxy   if you're computer won't support usb boot, I'm guess it's older or lower spec.  The alternate installer (text based) might be a better option for you as would possibly xubuntu or lubuntu.06:44
CFHowlett*your computer*06:45
urfr332gOneonkidxy, use unetbootin to load the thumb there is a windows version.06:45
neonkidxyI'm burning it at 4x speed, and I've tried those06:45
urfr332gOneonkidxy, if you can't boot a thumb your best with a cd really in the long run a a tool.06:46

CFHowlettbird   tweet06:47
birdThis is my first tohere06:48
Escherialok, so apparently the reason i can't hibernate is because i don't have a swap partition. unfortunately, i don't have the ubuntu install cd handy...is there any way i can create a swap partition without it? alternatively, can i just create a swapfile and expect to be able to hibernate?06:48
CFHowlettbird   what's your ubuntu question?06:49
birdNo,think you06:49
CFHowlettEscherial   creating partitions can only be done safely while dismounted.  sorry.06:49
urfr332gOEscherial, a swap cauld be made if you have a unallocated or make one in home. Not having a disc is not good by the way.06:50

Blue1biopyte: i am on 10.10 and will prolly go to debian rsn (reall soon now)07:09

YohanMeister hi all. I have 3 identical make/model drives in my machine and am trying to identify which might correspond to sda (the first drive).

MonkeyDustTigerwolf  almost, but not quite10:30
MonkeyDustit *looks* the same10:31

MonkeyDustTigerwolf  what went wrong with the live cd?10:32

Chipzzz(given some clue)10:33
ikoniaChipzzz: ok - lets do some basic questions10:33
Chipzzzk... lemme log into the machine...10:33
ikoniaChipzzz: 1.) is this hosted in a data center on a home DSL/broadband style line ?10:33
darrenloobyikonia, any ideas?10:33
ikoniadarrenlooby: you'll need to subnet it down, 10.* is a massive range10:34
ikoniadarrenlooby: so for example,
RiotingPacifistsuspend resume started failing the other day for me, I've tested on a kernel I know it worked on(3.0.0-15), the current one (3.0.0-16) and a newer one (3.3.0-rc4), it tends gets to a black screen on suspend then just hangs (if i use no_console_suspend, it says something about kworker being blocked) any idea what the cause could be?10:34
Chipzzzikonia: it's a friend's machine in his office with a high speed connection (70mb)... fixed ip, no router in the middle10:35
darrenloobyikonia, so, basically I'm going to need better data as to what IPs I'm expecting?10:35
ikoniaChipzzz: are you trying to resolve things internally on his netowrk, or from the public internet10:35
ikoniadarrenlooby: well would be a HUGE network range, you can do that if you want, I suspect it's not what you want to do though10:36
ikoniadarrenlooby: try subnetmask.info for working out your ranges/masks10:36
ikoniadarrenlooby: but basically thats how you do it, for example, for an 8 bit mask of the network10:37
darrenloobyikonia, I'm fine with the big range for now. When I learn more, I can focus in... would it work if I put
ikoniadarrenlooby: suerw10:37
darrenloobyikonia, I can work on reducing the range as I move forward. Thanks for your help :D10:38
Chipzzzikonia: the object is to get 3 virtual named servers connected to a single ip accessible on the internet10:38
ikoniadarrenlooby: no problem10:38
ikoniaChipzzz: are you expecting these to ac as proper authoritive name servers ?10:39
wolfrichow can i install and activate restricted drivers by commandline? I saw that it mentioned "broadcom sta" in the restricted drivers window10:40
wolfricso i apt-get install broadcom-sta-common and broadcom-sta-source and restarted but it didn't activate them. i had to go to the restricted drivers window and click activate. I need to know as i'm building a live cd with them10:40
Chipzzzikonia: i don't really care, but don't i have to in order to make their canonical names available to the net?10:40
darrenloobyikonia, so I don't break it... do I need to do that "allow" first, and then "disallow"?10:40
darrenloobyikonia, or is there a "not" type clause?10:40
ikoniaChipzzz: sorry, you need to care10:40
ikoniadarrenlooby: the rules are iptables, so think of it as a table, the query will go down the table of rules and match the first one it matches10:41
ikoniaChipzzz: are you expecting people to be able to visit say www.yourdomain.com that is on the public internet and it work ?10:41
Chipzzzikonia: yes, that's why i think it has to be authoritative10:42
darrenloobySo, I would do "sudo ufw allow from "10:42
Chipzzzdoesn't it?10:42
ikoniaChipzzz: ok - so then you are correct it needs to be authoritative10:42
=== Guest1080 is now known as Ard1t
ikoniaChipzzz: in that case you need to register the IP address / hostnames of the name servers you want to act as authoritive with the TLD name service registrar10:43
Chipzzzikonia: done and done... the name servers at the registrar all point to a name server at one of my domains10:44
ikoniaChipzzz: ok - so can you give me the public address of one of your name servers so I can run a test against it ?10:44
Chipzzzikonia: ns1.shadyapps.com10:45
ikoniaChipzzz: ok - so the domain server appears tobe listening "ok" on the net10:46
ikoniaChipzzz: can you give me one of the domains you want to resolve on this machine ?10:46
Chipzzzikonia: sirjeffx.com10:46
ikoniaChipzzz: ok10:46
ikoniaChipzzz: perfect, so they appear to be listening for that domain also, so at a top level, you look all good to go, so the issue must be with your local name server config10:48
ikoniaChipzzz: can you pastebin your configs please ?10:48
Chipzzzikonia: k... hang on while i gather them...10:50
darrenloobyikonia, I've added the accept and turned default to deny. Now it's just timing out when I try and ssh via an internal connection... do you think that this is because the range is too large?10:54
ikoniadarrenlooby: possibly10:54
ikoniadarrenlooby: what ip are you on internally10:54
ikoniadarrenlooby: and what was the deny rule you did10:55
darrenloobyLooking at what we've got so far - the internal IPs are starting 10.176.* and 10.177.*10:56
darrenloobyikonia, "sudo ufw allow from"10:56
ikoniadarrenlooby: so that should cover your range, hang on10:56

ikoniaChipzzz: I'm going to ask a stupid question here, but I don't see your domains in that file at all, I see the zone files cut and paste into that file, but that'sn ot how you set it up11:04
darrenloobyikonia, yea. Getting confused again. Don't worry, I think I've got it sorted now11:04

Chaitanya_What is the alternative to Autocad in ubuntu?11:07
undeclaredxnah well11:07
LjLChaitanya_: i'm afraid there isn't really a comparable alternative :\11:07
undeclaredxAutocad is a very specific app, I didn't even know they made it for ubuntu11:07
ikoniaChipzzz: cad programs are really very scarce and limited11:07
undeclaredxMostly, you'd have to switch to Windows or Mac OS11:07
ikoniaChaitanya_: ^11:07
undeclaredxthere is however, one.. but it's not for autocad specifically11:07
undeclaredxwell a few, but they are modelling, not autocad11:07
ikoniasorry Chipzzz, let me know when you are back, I can see issues with your bind setup11:07
LjLChaitanya_: some CAD programs are qcad, varkon, pythoncad, sagcad11:07

MayazcherquoiHey guys, is it advisable to remove all traces of Unity from Oneiric (apt-get remoe .*unity.*)?11:09
Chipzzzikonia: that would explain a lot... (b/t/w/ i had an entry for sirjeffx.com in named.conf.local, but it got lost in the messing around)... any help would be appreciated...11:09
ikoniaChipzzz: ok, well, I can go through this with you11:09
ikoniaChipzzz: do you have the config file in front of you ?11:09
Chipzzzikonia: yes, it's just a bunch of includes11:10
ikoniaChipzzz: ok look at lines 8 - 1211:10
ikoniaChipzzz: that the line that says "how the domain shadyapps.com"11:10
ikoniaChipzzz: as you can see it points to a file "/etc/bind/db.shadyapps.com" that contains your zone date for shadyapps.com11:10
ikoniaChipzzz: follow ?11:10
Chipzzzikonia: yes...11:11
crizzyMayazcherquoi: if you don't use it you can remove it..11:11
ikoniaChipzzz: ok, so that's all good, scroll down to lines 44, until the bottom of the config11:12
Mayazcherquoicrizzy: But I mean the whole thing?11:12
crizzyMayazcherquoi: if you don't use it, sure you can remove it :)11:12
ikoniaChipzzz: that data is zone data, you don't put zone data in the config file, you put that in the zone file,11:12
Mayazcherquoicrizzy: It'll also uninstall gnome-session, but I use gnome-shell? :s11:12
ikoniaChipzzz: you put a line like lines 8 - 12 to say "host this domain, and look at this file for the zone data"11:12
abhinavmehtahow to generate public-private key pair, using auto(eg. command line args) passphrase…using openssl?11:12
ikoniaChipzzz: then you put the zone data in the file you pointed at,11:12
ikoniaChipzzz: in your example, you don't have the lines that say "host this domain" you've just dumped the zone data into the config file11:13
ikoniaChipzzz: follow ?11:13
ubuntu-guyI don't see the Location bar... where it is, where is the file browser menu ?11:13
crizzyMayazcherquoi: should not matter.. you can install gnome-session back anyway afterwards if it was necessary11:13
Mayazcherquoicrizzy: Okay11:13
Mayazcherquoicrizzy: Ta :)11:13

undeclaredxactually not that long11:19
ikoniapokuy: all detailed on the mint website11:19
undeclaredxa small ln -s shell script would be fairly easy, actually11:19
Chipzzzikonia: yes, master zone, specifies the db file, allows transfer to a secondary ns... right?11:19
ikoniaChipzzz: correct, so in your head tick that as "that is how you define a zone"11:19
ikoniaChipzzz: so we both agree that is a good entry yes ?11:19
pokuyikonia, ok thanks11:19
undeclaredxstephanb: but is there any non-artificial ways...11:20

undeclaredxwell that was the end of it anyway11:25
Chipzzzikonia: (it got lost in all the messing around)11:26
ikoniaChipzzz: ah, I didn't see it in the file at all11:26
Chipzzzikonia: should i use the cached db file for that, or the one in /etc/bind?11:27
ikoniaChipzzz: you are supposed to create a DB file containing the zone data11:27
ikoniaChipzzz: if you want it to act as a master, put it in the same locations as your other master server database files and point the zone at it11:28
Chipzzzikonia: ok.. it now points to the db.sirjeffx.com in the pastie... give me a minute & i'll restart bind11:29
ikoniaChipzzz: clear out all the nonsense zone data at the bottom of the file11:30
Chipzzzikonia: i remember having done that at one point and the server balked at having more than one master zone...11:32

stephanbBhavesh: except you change your "/etc/apt/sources.list" back to 11.10 after upgrdaing11:55
ikoniaChipzzz: how can it not allow multiple masters.....11:55
stephanbBhavesh: on a productive system i would recommend neither11:55
Bhaveshstephanb: ok, and would it be right to include 11.10 sources to get chromium and other stuff still unavailable?11:55

Belseruskikonia, via Grsync12:00
ikoniaBelserusk: for example grsync is a gui, that will require X11 and a desktop and GTKs, so it will pull in a lot of other packages12:00
Belseruskikonia, I see. So if I install Grsync - it will automatically install all other required apps>?12:01
ikoniaBelserusk: why are you asking, you said you are already doing this and it's working12:01
Belseruskikonia, Because I want to sync a 3rd laptop and only want to install the min amount of software on it.12:02

Belseruskikonia, ok. Thanks. &_&12:04
Chipzzzikonia: bind installs "named.conf.default-zones" by default, with entries for ".", "localhost", "127.in-addr.arpa", ... etc... an include in named.conf reads them12:04
Belseruskikonia, ^_^12:04
ikoniadarrenlooby: ok - so I very strongly advise you not to compile it yourself for no reason12:04

stephanbikonia, darrenlooby: and certainly not if you don't know what you are doing12:05
darrenloobyikonia, so, how what do I do if I want to do things like "--with-mysqld-user=mysql"12:05
ikoniadarrenlooby: what ?12:06
ikoniawhat exactly are you trying to do ?12:06
Chipzzzikonia: this is the first bind9 install for me, so i'm not very aware of the differences between distros yet...12:06
darrenloobyI'm trying to run mysql under a none root user12:06

airtonixTopGear: oh ok, i guess my laptop of godly awesome is in contradiction then12:09

Mayazcherquoiand/or gdm12:26
stephanbMayazcherquoi: i would recommend to go back to 3.2, because as the gnome team says themselves: "GNOME 3.3.x is an unstable development series intended for testing and  hacking purposes. GNOME uses odd minor version numbers to indicate  development status"12:27

ikoniaCarl_1: what linux version is it ?13:07
Carl_1what comamnd do I put in to find linux version?13:08
ikoniaCarl_1: uname -a will do13:08
patrunjeltejaswidp, i'm not a ubuntu guru, so don't trust me, but you should try googleing some info on the virus / how it works / what files it modifies, and either restore the stuff manually, or (if you're lucky), get a script that does it for you13:08

RedViperWhich Ubuntu is better, more reliable and Less buggy? Ubuntu 10.04 - 10.10 - 11.04 - 11.10 0r the new 12.04? ( http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/de/timeline/dade00253b5f51e91b13029c3a26ffc0.png ) I want to install my new laptop and I want to know the most prudent. And it must have Long Term Support.13:10
mosnoMayazcherquoi, it automatically shows up after install. just select it and the dm remembers13:10
jribRedViper: 10.04 is the latest LTS release13:10
ikoniaCarl_1: that looks like ubuntu 7.0413:10
ikoniaCarl_1: can you confirm that with the command "lsb_release -a"13:10
Carl_1ikonia: uname on its own just says "Linux" too13:10
ikoniaCarl_1: does it say "7.04"13:10
tejaswidpRennegate I will try that. Thank you13:10
ikoniaooh 8.0413:10
jribRedViper: why do you want LTS though?13:10
tejaswidpBut Why doesn't linux recognize that something is wrong?13:10
tejaswidpIt keeps creating other files13:11
Carl_1ikonia:  8.04.4 LTS13:11
ikoniaCarl_1: can you show me the"exact" useradd command you  used to create the user13:11
RedViperjrib: Because I am not to fond of settingup my system every 6 months13:11
Carl_1ikonia: first I tried "useradd carl" followed by "passwd carl"13:11
tejaswidpSo is it advisable to install an anti virus on ubuntu?13:11

jribRedViper: good in what way?13:13
Guest68950mosno, I am using 11.10 x86, and it was working prior to trying to upgrade to 3.3. But after reverting back to 3.2 for the same problem, it still doesn't show13:13

ubottuRedViper: Ubuntu 11.10 uses GNOME 3 with the !unity shell by default.  To use GNOME Shell instead, install the "gnome-shell" package and investigate "gnome-tweak-tool".  For GNOME Fallback mode, which is similar to GNOME 2, install "gnome-panel". Both packages will place entries in the Sessions dropdown. Using Natty? See !classic13:17

ikoniaCarl_1: does that work ?13:21
quupfidel: used to be just gnome-session in previous ubuntu versions, but now that doesn't give me a menu13:21
quupjust a background13:21

Carl_1ikonia:  Authentication failure13:22
Carl_1sorry, su: Autentication failure13:22
P1rateRedViper: so whats the problem?13:23
ikoniaCarl_1: ok - so either a.) you have not set the password correclty b.) you have authentication setup to look at another method.13:23
ikoniaCarl_1: how did you set the password13:23
Carl_1ikonia: I think it must be the latter13:23
Carl_1ikonia: I'm in an unfortunate situation here, this has been passed on to me with no documentation13:23
ikoniaCarl_1: how did you set the password13:23
jribRedViper: ok install 10.04 then :)  See with 10.04 you'll need to upgrade to 12.04 before april of 2013.  With 11.10, you'll need to upgrade to 12.04 before april 2013 as well13:23

who_am_i_68I am using UBuntu 11.10. Adobe flash use CPU like crazy. But the desktop is very very cool. I want to install from additional drivers my ATI's driver. But there is 2 same drivers on the list. Which one should I install ? (the difference of two drivers is just this string : "post-release updates" )14:34
oCeanubuntu-guy-died: why are you posting that link here?14:34
ubuntu-guy-diedOK i am sorry14:34

who_am_i_68_Marcus just the name of one has also this string "post-release updates"14:36
_Marcuswho_am_i_68: I think you should get the one that says "post-release updates".14:37
who_am_i_68_Marcus ok. also can you tell me what that string means?14:37
_Marcuswho_am_i_68: It means it's an update that is released after the product was released(the product in this case is the driver). In other words, it's a patch for the driver.14:38
who_am_i_68_Marcus ok. and Adoıbe flash will use CPU like crazy after the installation of driver?14:39
_Marcuswho_am_i_68: If ATI put something that messes with Adobe Flash in their drivers, then yes, the CPU usage may increase, but that is very unlikely.14:41
who_am_i_68_Marcus very bad. flash makes me crazy even I use adblock extension... Anyway Thank you for your interest! :)14:42

karsten_ hey there. does anybody knows why i can install updates via the "Aktualisierungsverwaltung" (I think its Update Manger in English) in Lubuntu 11.10 without typing in my root-password15:15

chown_btw as001 i found this tweak: myunity to be of good use on teaking the unity15:16
Daekdroomkarsten_, updates require root privileges15:16
karsten_Daekdroom, thanks, i know. thats why i'm asking15:16
DaekdroomAh. I misread it, sorry.15:17
Myrttikarsten_: settings-button on the bottom has an option15:17
Myrtti"When there are security updates:"15:17
Daekdroomkarsten_, sudo is able to remember your root password for about some minutes, so try to pay attention whether you used it shortly before or not.15:17
karsten_Myrtti, the value of the option is... something like.. "Show instantly"15:18
allu2am i only one who can't move left up corner directly using ctrl+alt+left+up hotkeys while on down right corner, in unity15:18
Myrttikarsten_: above that?15:18
karsten_Daekdroom, i think it is able to store the password for 15 minutes. but i hasn typed in since 11:00am, the updates was at 03:00pm15:19
allu2works well from up left to down right, down left to up right but it doesn't work down right to up left15:19
Gentoo64karsten_: sudo -k will reset the timer15:19
karsten_Myrtti, theres an option "When there are securtiy Updates" and the value of this is "Show instantly" (in my german distribution it is "Sofort anzeigen")15:19
karsten_Myrtti, so does it allow the installation of updates without typing in the root-password?15:20
Myrttikarsten_: there should be an option "Download and install automatically" - so security updates would be installed automatically15:21
Myrttikarsten_: it doesn't install normal updates automatically, though.15:21
karsten_Myrtti, yes, thats why i'm wondering. It asked me for some security updates, after i touched the "Update"-Button it started to install without the password-prompt15:22

Gumpo1how to do that automatically is beyond me. I tried fstab or whatever but it failed since the network is not laoded before it tried to mount it15:50

stpierrerunning 11.04. i rebooted this morning, and now emacs will not start (tried with and without X, and even daemon mode) _unless_ I strace it.  "strace emacs" works just dandy.  reinstalled emacs and all related packages.  other programs -- X and non-X start fine.  any suggestions?16:01
Prolachow can I check which version of specific software is in the repos?16:01

okumActionParsnip: i just mean, could i go download any trial of a windows program and it shall work if known to work? :P16:03
tttMarcus:  I'm getting behavior I don't understand with tail -f  piping to another program. I pipe to a program that ends, but  I don't come back to a command prompt.16:03
stpierresipior: no error (or output) at all.  i have not been running strace under sudo; root can't run emacs, either, though, fwiw.16:03
stpierrei've been invoking it as '\emacs -nw -Q -q --no-site-file' to avoid loading ... basically anything other than emacs itself.16:03
ActionParsnipokum: sure, as long as the appdb says its ok then you'll be ok16:03

Gumpo1is there a screensaver that can show pictures from a folder perhaps?16:11
okumhow to update wine? it won't let me through update manager cuz it's untrusted packages or something like that.16:11
ActionParsnipGumpo1: if you didn't use the script file and had it just running in rc.local it would hang the boot16:11
zortnessActionParsnip: over the past couple of years, I've probably downloaded 20+ images of ubuntu and attempted to install them via cd and usb stick16:11
MonkeyDustluvsawti  you mean unetbootin?16:11
ActionParsnipGumpo1: the script is backgrounded and running as root in the background, but the sleep makes the script wait a while so that it can do its thing later16:11
excoActionParsnip, there is vt.handoff=7 in my kernel parameters but I can't find the option in /etc/default/grub16:12

luvsawtior i say i want to install ubuntu in pendrive , run it too .16:15
zortnessActionParsnip: so I can boot into the livecd mode, when I install everything is fine until I get to the keyboard selection screen. At that point the installation either locks up completely (mouse freezes, no keys work, have to hardware reset), or the machine resets on its own.16:15

ActionParsnipcancer: same way then. You learned by using the OS, that's on of the greatest ways to learn Linux too17:00
ActionParsnipcancer: you can use CLI in XP, it's called powersell17:01
cancerActionParsnip: but it seem bit confusing to me. maybe coz i have not tried it yet.17:01
theadmincancer: "man intro" is a good start for basic commands.17:02
ActionParsnipcancer: indeed, just use the OS and you'll be ok17:02
theadminActionParsnip: PowerShell was introduced in Vista, no?17:02

_hardy_I have a live CD . but i dont know how to fix ubuntu using it17:08
stephanb_Marcus: no, but you can start the initscript in the place you installed it, like "/opt/etc/init.d/apache2 start" if you installed it to "/opt"17:08
ActionParsniparshzingh: what was the command you ran?17:08
arshzinghActionParsnip : sh somefile.sh17:08
ActionParsniparshzingh: ok then run:  ps -ef | grep somefile      what is output>17:09
stephanbi'm heading off, bye17:09
zykotick9arshzingh: did you try CTRL+C?17:09
_hardy_hey guys... need help in urgent basis...17:09
ActionParsnip_hardy_: details are useful17:09
hex20dec_hardy_, Ask your question.17:10
_hardy_ActionParsnip: I am having issue in booting up ubuntu17:10
_hardy_I hav installed over windows17:10
Treat1Yes, it worked, I was able to ping the printer17:10
ActionParsnip_hardy_: ok, what happens when you boot?17:10
ActionParsnipTreat1: ok what make and model printer?17:10
arshzinghzykotick9: That will stop  it. ..  should i stop and run the sh comand again17:10
_hardy_It was worked well yesterday night..  But after installing some flash plugin it stopped working.17:10
Treat1Canon Pixma MX88217:10
_hardy_I am just getting a ubuntu loading screen17:10
zykotick9arshzingh: i thought that's what you wanted to do?  stop it?  is that not what you want?17:11
ActionParsnip_hardy_: what GPU do you use?17:11
_hardy_and it flickers back to console kind of screen and again back to ubuntu loading scrreen17:11
_hardy_GPU ? ??17:11
ActionParsnip_hardy_: video card chip17:11
arshzinghzykotick9: i want the sh command to be completed17:11
zykotick9arshzingh: then DON'T CTRL+C it!17:12
_hardy_windows is working fine.17:12
arshzinghzykotick9: then what ?17:12
ActionParsnipTreat1: ok under network printers select to find the printer and type the IP in that box17:12
zykotick9arshzingh: wait until it finishes17:12
ActionParsnip_hardy_: windows is a completely different OS, with different support. So is of no value17:12
ActionParsnip_hardy_: what video chip do you use?17:12
Treat1No printer was found at that address17:13
arshzinghzykotick9: it has stopped giving any output ....17:13
_hardy_I am not sure. But its AMD17:13
ActionParsnipTreat1: try the other options then17:13
_hardy_not know in details. :(17:13
ActionParsnip_hardy_: try the boot option:  nomodeset17:13
zykotick9arshzingh: depends on the script you are using.  either: end it or wait.17:13
_hardy_ok.. Anything with Live CD ?17:13
Treat1this has always been a breeze, I don't understand why it's such an issue now17:14
_hardy_Coz the only thing I have right now is this LiveCD17:14
ActionParsnip_hardy_: yes you will need that in the live CD to get the desktop more than likely too17:14
arshzinghzykotic9: sent you a scrnshot17:14
_hardy_ActionParsnip: Is there anyway to load up my ubuntu from this live CD ?17:14
Treat1It's always come up automatically.17:15
ActionParsnip_hardy_: you can chroot and the commands you run will afftect the installed OS. I suggest you reboot and hold SHIFT and you can then add the boot option there17:15
ActionParsnipTreat1: do the other options work?17:15
grandrewhi all! Is there any decent "find files" tool available for ubuntu? Some time ago it was possible to search for files dated/modified from xx/xx/xx to yy/yy/yy (by date) but I cannot find anything with UI to accomplish this :-\17:15
ActionParsnipgrandrew: find in terminal is pretty sweet, or you can run: sudo updatedb   then use the locate command to find files17:16
_hardy_ActionParsnip: ok last thing. I am using dual boot. Means I have installed ubuntu using wbui. So any tips or suggestions regarding that ?17:16
Treat1I don't know what other opitons you are talking about17:16
_hardy_in account to fix the problem17:16

grandrewActionParsnip, yes it does make it less usable since you have to dig in man pages instead of just clicking and doing it17:21
ActionParsnipOEMcolincolinco: press CTRL+H and you will see the hidden folders17:21

thingamagicok thanks!! :)17:32
vicivaciUpon reading the ifconfig, All i can find is localhost and that "inet" ip17:32
ActionParsnipvicivaci: yes youo asked for "internal LAN ip"17:32
theadminvicivaci: "inet addr" IS what you are looking for17:33
vicivaciHmm, I mean 192.x.x.x :P17:33
ActionParsnipNitroTiger: you may need an xorg.conf file to define the display if it is not being detected.17:33
vicivaciif there is one using a ECS (im clueless)17:33
vicivacihmm ok17:33
theadminvicivaci: It's normally in the for m of 192.168.x.x or 10.x.x.x17:34
ActionParsnipvicivaci: you mean the WAN IP you would connect to to access the system17:34
vicivaciYes, im trying to link my mysql config file to php17:34

vicivaciit wont work17:34

vicivaciI'm looking for my own internal IP adress to clarify :)17:34
NitroTigerI have it from old ubuntu.17:35
ActionParsnipvicivaci: then thats not your internel IP you need is it...17:35
vicivaciNo, probably not, sorry17:35
grandrewActionParsnip, yep I've googled-out the solution: 1. create a temp file, touch it to DATE1, 2. create a second tmp file with DATE2, then find -cnewer ./date1 ... ! -cnewer ./date2... yep, THATS user friendly!?!17:35
ankitbhye folks, i want to known where pkt loss happened in the loss...plz suggest me any tool and method for this...17:35
ActionParsnipvicivaci: IP=`wget -q -O - http://ip.keithscode.com`; echo $IP      will give your routers WAN IP. .If you ask for the wrong thing youo will get the wrong reply17:35
ActionParsnipgrandrew: i'd say so17:35
theadminActionParsnip: Isn't that overkill? What's the point of assigning the output to a variable and echo'ing the variable when you can just run the command you gave in ``'s?17:36

excotheadmin, the disk where grub2 is ...18:09
krycekis there a terminal minecraft out?18:10
theadminkrycek: No, and I don't think there will ever be. You can run Minecraft Server without gui though18:10
krycektheadmin: k18:10
ActionParsnipLiran: there is a ppa if you want18:10
theadminexco: Oh... probably it's not installed at all?18:10
ActionParsnipLiran: what is the output of:  lsb_release -sc18:10
excotheadmin, well, the machine boots so it better be ;-) and /dev/sd* are where the disks are18:11
LiranActionParsnip, i don't want the ppa because it updated long after the regular release18:11
excotheadmin,  can't I check some grub2 conf or the like18:11
LiranActionParsnip, im on oneiric18:11
excoalso update-initramfs works so that should know where it installs grub2 to18:11
ActionParsnipLiran: I see, you can extract the file in /opt    then symlink the firefox biary in /usr/bin   and it will be runnable18:11
krycekmaybe chmod -x as well ./.18:12
ActionParsnipLiran: I suggest you use an obscure name so other apps don't overwrite the file18:12
LiranActionParsnip, alredy did that. ~/firefox and ive symlinked it to /usr/bin18:12
ActionParsnipLiran: did you uninstall the firefox package too?18:12
LiranActionParsnip, it works from terminal when i run: firefox but the system open web pages links with gedit18:13
tsunami_ActionParnsip: I can see the partitions , but when I open the directories in /media/7738-E691 there is nothing there. never happened before, yesterday was ok18:13
theadminexco: Hm, try this: sudo find /dev -name "sd*" -exec file -s '{}' \;18:13
LiranActionParsnip, yes ive uninstalled it18:13

Escherialhey, what would you all recommend for editing files on a remote machine? kate has a tendency to freeze up or become slow if the connection isn't so great, and it has no way to restore the connection if it's broken18:36
Escheriali do like kate, though, so something like it would be nice18:36
theadminEscherial: vim18:37
auronandaceEscherial: why not nano, far less overhead18:37

=== Knorre is now known as Knorre`BNC
CFHowlettthe_hydra   greetings18:38
the_hydrawhat is your recommended web based system monitoring?18:38
the_hydracacti? nagios? zabbix?18:38
the_hydraCFHowlett: hi18:39
CFHowlettthe_hydra   I'm not an admin, but I see frequent references to nagios18:39
the_hydraCFHowlett: hm i see18:40
Escherialtheadmin, auronandace: i was hoping for a graphical editor, unless you're recommending gvim18:40
the_hydraCFHowlett: i got same impression too, especially since LinuxQuestions latest polling list nagios as #1 in that category18:40
Escherialbut fair enough, i probably should learn to use vim someday outside of simply being able to type, save, and quit18:40
CFHowlettthe_hydra   well then - asked and answered!18:40
theadminEscherial: gvim is okay too. Try cream as well.18:41
the_hydraCFHowlett: thanks :)18:41
CFHowlettthe_hydra   have fun/be safe18:41
Escherialmy main concern is the performance over ssh...do they choke like kate does? can you restore your session if it's broken (e.g. if your laptop goes to sleep)?18:41
auronandaceEscherial: no offence but if you are editing text over a remote connection why have the overhead of a gui?18:41
zykotick9Escherial: if you using a terminal based editor with screen - then yes18:41
Escheriali have to wonder if i'm in a minority for liking to use a mouse while editing text, heh...18:42
auronandaceEscherial: nano is very simple18:42
Tm_Tusing mouse != gui18:43
EscherialTm_T: practically, using nano or vim like they've suggested won't by default support a mouse afaik18:43
CFHowlettEscherial   do what works for you.18:44
Escherialmeh, well, kate is working ok for now; it just gets laggy, which is surprising considering that i'm running it locally18:44
Escheriali have to wonder if it's saving every character i enter, which would explain the latency somewhat18:45
theadminEscherial: jedit, geany, cream, gedit, mousepad # List of some friendly GUI editors sorted by lightweightness. Try them and see which you like.18:45
Escherialtheadmin: right, thanks :)18:45
theadminEscherial: It's from least-lightweight to most-lightweight by the way18:46
MonkeyDustEscherial  and leafpad18:46
Escherialslightly off topic, but is mounting a folder via scp not a recommended way to edit files on a remote machine?18:46
MonkeyDustEscherial  NFS18:46
MonkeyDustor SSH18:47
MonkeyDustEscherial  scp is cp over ssh18:47
Escherialah...right, apologies, it's actually using sftp as far as i can tell...18:47
theadminEscherial: I don't see why sshfs/sftp would fail on you18:48
Escherialit's not failing, but it's not exactly resilient to flaky/closed connections. if i were using, say, winscp on windows, it'd at least attempt to reconnect if i were disconnected18:48
zykotick9Escherial: using sftp to actually edit seems strange to me18:49
Escherialzykotick9: as opposed to opening up an ssh session and using a non-graphical editor, you mean?18:49
zykotick9Escherial: or ssh with X forwarding for a GUI editor18:50
XenethIs there a shortcut in Ubuntu 10.4 to delete an item without sending it to the trash?18:50

theadminXeneth: Like usual :D18:51
Xeneththeadmin, Thanks.  I could have searched, but I'm lazy.18:51
Escherialzykotick9: but then wouldn't the latency be even worse, as even just interacting the editor would incur delay?18:52

ubottuRewt`: In Ubuntu all runlevels except 0,1 and 6 are by default equal. Also keep in mind that Ubuntu now uses !Upstart instead of System V init so there is normally no /etc/inittab.19:07
