DrknzzHi guys! Does anyone here have experience building kernels? I need to crosscompile a kernel to ARMv6, i have the GNU ARMv6 compiler, but make keeps telling me $CROSS_COMPILEgcc does not exist, even though i am pretty sure it does00:00
WebWalker3D|2I can't seem to get any version of ubuntu to work in Xen HVM as a guest.  Is there anything obvious I'm missing?00:00
icerootWebWalker3D|2: i dont know what xen hv,m is but with normal xen its working without problems here00:01
LirthI've noticed that my sound will no longer work on either my desktop or my laptop. It works fine when I'm running windows and I'm not sure what's causing the problem.00:01
KI7MTDrknzz, You may want to ask  in #ubuntu-kernel  I found a how-too but not sure how accurate it is, you can have a look here: http://marcin.juszkiewicz.com.pl/2010/10/19/how-to-cross-compile-arm-kernel-under-ubuntu-10-10/00:03
ituHow to rotate  a video 180°  (with mplayer) ?00:04
DrknzzKIM7 Thanks man, will have a look.... the kernel is for a phone, but ive checked some of the source and most stuff is plain 2.6.x linux files00:04
igor__what, linux cant play mkv files?00:04
itu(or mcoder)00:05
CFHowlettitu   http://nwlinux.com/rotate-a-video-using-mplayer/00:05
icerootigor__: linux has nothing to do with mkv files00:05
icerootigor__: and mkv is not a video-format its just a container00:05
igor__so it cant play them?00:05
icerootigor__: of course you can play them but you need the codecs00:06
igor__where do i get them?00:06
ituCFHowlett: i need  180°00:06
WebWalker3D|2iceroot: xen hvm is hardware virtualization, not paravirtualization00:06
icerootigor__: and what does "does not play" mean? laggy? no sound? not starting?00:06
Guest39889some log messages appear for a moment when logging out or pressing Ctrl+Alt+Backspace...what are they and where do they come from?00:06
igor__i get a green video in vlc. and all the others either wont play or the audio and video is way off00:07
icerootWebWalker3D|2: ok, should be working fine. what are the exact errors you are getting?00:07

ubottuigor__: For multimedia issues, this page has useful information: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RestrictedFormats - See also https://help.ubuntu.com/10.04/musicvideophotos/C/video.html - But please use free formats if you can: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/FreeFormats00:07
WebWalker3D|2iceroot: 11.10 can't find network card, 11.04 installs then doesn't boot - can't find root00:07
icerootWebWalker3D|2: i would suggest a test with 10.04 because that release is using the mailline xen-kernel00:08
WebWalker3D|2iceroot: I'll give 10.04 a shot, back in 10 min :)00:08
icerootWebWalker3D|2: my best results i get are always with the mainline xen-kernel, 2.6.18, 2.6.26, 2.6.3200:08

itui do not have vlc  :(00:19
igor__it plays but the audio and video is way off00:19

itubut thats silly00:21
itu(ok, seems to be the only possibility)00:22
ActionParsnipitu: why, you have a need and I'm naming a tool which can do what you need00:22
ActionParsnipitu: how is that silly>?00:22
LirthI'm having some sound problems with ubuntu 11.10. It's completely silent and is creeping me out. Windows 7 runs sound successfully so I don't think it's my speakers.00:22

icerootOldOneEye: you are talking about xserver00:37
Praxiumm if your in KDE, isn't X already started? sorry pretty new at this hehe00:37
icerootOldOneEye: so you have a server without a gui and you want kde?00:37
ActionParsnipPraxi: you are right00:37
OldOneEyeyes iceroot00:37
OldOneEyei got ubuntu server 11.10 installed00:37
ActionParsnipOldOneEye: why didn't you just install Kubuntu?00:37
icerootOldOneEye: why installing server then? and the command you need is "sudo apt-get install kubuntu-desktop"00:37
OldOneEyeim gonna run shells from here00:38
icerootOldOneEye: for that you dont need the server-edition00:38
ActionParsnipOldOneEye: you can do anything you can in the server OS in the desktop OS00:38
icerootOldOneEye: the server-edition is the same as the desktop-edition without a gui00:38
OldOneEyehow i install a gui00:38
icerootOldOneEye: i told you the command00:38
PraxiAnyone have any ideas to get this printer working in Linux? canon imagerunner advance c7055?00:39

For some reason when i try to activate the nvidia drivers, the computer must be restarted for changes to take effect, and then it just hangs when trying to start up.

matt5hey folks. I never actually tried installing linux with anything other than a CD/DVD disc. can someone commend on the installation process with.. say, a usb key? is it easier/just as easy as burning an iso on a CD/DVD, or what?01:29
Lirthkiama2005: It shows (UK)?01:29
CFHowlettmatt5   it's easier01:29
Lirthmatt5: I've noticed it running faster but I can't say that applies to everyone.01:29
CFHowlettmatt5   startup disk creator or unetbootin will do the job01:29
ryaoDoes anyone know how to make a Ubuntu 10.04 LiveUSB key without using a GUI tool?01:30
ActionParsnipmatt5: no moving parts is advantageous too01:30
matt5CFHowlett: a cd has to be completely free before an image can be burned on it. I assume I'll have to wipe clear my 20gb disc?01:31
ryaomatt5: With 11.10, you can dd the iso into a USB key and it will owrk.01:31
matt5and format it first?01:31
Lirthkiama2005: Is the problem system wide or just in most circumstances?01:31
CFHowlettmatt5   whoa, what?01:31

kiama2005Every place so far.01:33
Lirthkiama2005: are all the letters in the right place?01:34
matt5hm, ok. That sounds very good, I was not expecting this. So thanks! I'll look more into this and try to go for the installation tonight. Which brings me my final question: I can install the 12.04 beta, and expect it to be properly updated by periodically doing "apt-get upgrade", right? so when it's finally out, I won't have to do anything... I will be all good and up to date. Does this sound about right?01:35
Lirthkiama2005: Try checking out this thread. It sounds like your problem.01:35
ActionParsnipmatt5: it will be upgraded like any other release01:36
CFHowlettmatt5   beta = not ready for prime time.  go with 11.1001:36
kiama2005Thanks Lirth will exit and give it atry.01:36
LirthCFHowlet: What about vista? That wasn't in beta once it was released...01:37
ActionParsnipLirth: well yeah, if its released it's not in beta..01:37

Kaizenhow the hell can they claim xubuntu is leightweight? it takes 2GB to install, that's not lightweight02:10
ActionParsnipKaizen: its light in RAM02:10
CFHowlettKaizen   I believe the light reference is to the required hardware to run ...02:10
ActionParsnipKaizen: it uses lightweight apps which use few resources02:10
Kaizenok, i stand corrected :)02:10
ActionParsnipKaizen: Lubuntu is even lighter, it uses LXDE and openbox :). You can go even lighter with just openbox, or even just flwm02:11
OerHeks2 gb isn't much02:11
Kaizenit is for my needs02:12
ActionParsnipKaizen: install ubuntu minimal, then install openbox and slim and you'll have a super light OS02:13

fellayaboyinstead of using my public ip that always changes what can i do so that i have one address when it changes02:20
fellayaboyor a hostname that i use02:20
Kaizenuse svpn.com02:21
ActionParsnipfellayaboy: get an account with noip or dydns and you can have a name that will update the DNS with your new IP when it changes02:22
Kaizenugh why is lubuntu installing gigs of junk.. grr02:23
fellayaboyActionParsnip, but u have to pay for those services right02:23
ActionParsnipfellayaboy: noip is free02:24
fellayaboyoh ok is it secure?02:24
ActionParsnipfellayaboy: just have to refresh the account when they send you an email to say you still need the name02:24
Kaizeni wouldn't trust them02:24
ActionParsnipfellayaboy: secure in what way?02:24
ActionParsnipfellayaboy: it just changes your ip to an easily rememberable name, what is there to be secure?02:25
fellayaboyoh ok ActionParsnip02:25
ActionParsnipKaizen: why not02:25
Kaizencos they control where the traffic goes, they could redirect anywhere whenever they feel like it02:25
fellayaboyhows the usual setup for this i never did a dyndns or no ip before02:25
fellayaboyi always remembered the public ip address never gave it a host name02:26
ActionParsnipKaizen: it resolves your ip to a name, thats it02:26
Kaizenyou can set it up in your router most times02:26
Kaizenname to ip you mean02:26
ActionParsnipKaizen: both if you want to get techy02:26
Kaizenthey do rdns?02:27
ActionParsnipKaizen: i'd imagine so02:27
ActionParsnipKaizen: ubuntu also has a client for noip in its repos, so it can't be bad :)02:28
Kaizeni'm still suspicious, how do they make money?02:29
ActionParsnipKaizen: you can pay for mail redirects and other services02:29
ActionParsnipKaizen: companies not making money can exist02:30

Jorophoseso i have a Dell V130 laptop here, celeron u3400 and intel series 5 chipset, and my hard drive is no longer detected. i tried a different hard drive that i know works, it's also not detected (at the BIOS level).

Kaizenthe drive is borked?03:18
Jorophosemy motherboard has a daughter card with what seems to be the HDD controller on it (at least, it has the SATA plugs) but it also does audio-out... and audio out IS working (live USB works perfect; it's just the internal HDD interface is bunk)03:18

Jorophoseboth drives are WD Blue, so maybe they broke the same way? But I doubt they're BOTH bork and invisible to the BIOS because of it?03:18

scanictearthkin: does PgUp work?03:47
SHOVELLJordan_U, think you might be able to help the description that the tool you linked seems to be the case03:47
MNichieearthkin, I think you want to go to the bottom of the file, press shift+g to go to the end of the file03:47
earthkinscanict: no, it doesn't03:48
earthkinMNichie: I'm not in a file anymore - I just want to scroll up the screen. shift-g doesn't help03:48
MNichieoh, to scroll up/down in the terminal press shift+page up/page down03:49
Jordan_USHOVELL: I think it's probably that your extended partition is mis-sized, if that's the case it should be trivial to fix with fixparts.03:50
SHOVELLJordan_U, it looks like i have lost my sda and sdb03:50
mi3anyone knows python here? I want to use it with conky..03:51
SHOVELLJordan_U, i have not tried to change the extended part yet can i do this with that?03:51

ActionParsnipGASSYPOOTS: then delete the ubuntu partition and either resize the ntfs into the freed space or create a new partition for user data04:13
ActionParsnipGASSYPOOTS: you will need to reinstate teh windows boot loader as ubuntu overwrote the bootloader with grub04:13
LirthActionParsnip: So when I found Steam in the list and looked at it, it showed "Wine Version 1.3.37". Does that mean I should get 1.3? Also, why would one version work better than another? Are the numbers not released linearly like the Ubuntu releases (10.04 -> 10.11 -> 11.04 -> 11.0)04:13

jaimie_Wow, AMD is fabless now?04:57
escott!details | GEEMac04:57
ubottuGEEMac: Please give us full details. For example: "I have a problem with ..., I'm running Ubuntu version .... When I try to do ..., I get the following output: ..., but I expected it to do ..."04:57
Lirthjaimie_: fabless?04:57
jaimie_they don't make any CPUs04:58
jaimie_just design04:58
jaimie_that's pretty risky04:58
jaimie_no wafers.04:58
ActionParsnipjaimie_: how is this ubuntu support related?04:58
varatepWhat does this mean: Cannot source a directory: "$HOME/.vimrc"04:58
escottvaratep, it is trying to load that file and cannot04:59
jaimie_Action: Someone mentioned AMD up there.04:59
jaimie_I haven't looked at AMD in awhile.04:59
jaimie_(re bulldozer)04:59
varatepescott: How do I enable it to load the file? I made a .vimrc folder and a vimrc file in that folder04:59
go8765hello. i want to change my partitions but before i want to backup mbr - s this is good idea?04:59
CFHowlettgo8765   couldn't hurt -04:59
Lirthjaimie_, ActionParsnip: cyber_ was asking about using it for a linux build.05:00
escottvaratep, and you are seeing this wehn you start vim?05:00
varatepescott: Yes.05:00
GEEMacI'm running Ubuntu version11.10, I have a problem with booting, I boot to busybox v1.18.4 and stop at initramfs.05:00
escottvaratep, sorry im slow .vimrc is supposed to be a file not a directory05:00
varatepescott: oh so i don't make the directory? its just .vimrc in my home folder?05:00
MiggsAnybody able to help me out with my PulseAudio problem?05:00
ActionParsnipMiggs: whats the issue?05:01
LirthWhat does it mean for Linux gaming if nvidia joined the Linux Foundation?05:01
MiggsI have a headless server and a laptop both running 11.10. The server is configured to allow network access to sound sinks. The laptop is set to discover them. Yet the laptop cannot see the server's sinks. Not even in avahi-discover. The server can see it's own sinks in avahi-discover though. Any suggestions?05:01
mi3!cookie | ActionParsnip05:01
ubottuActionParsnip: Wow! You're such a great helper, you deserve a cookie!05:01
escottvaratep, yes usually if it is supposed to be a directory it will be something like .program or .program.d but .programrc is always a single file05:01
varatepescott: .vim is afolder though correct?05:01
MiggsYes, all the cookies to ActionParsnip!05:01
go8765CFHowlett: i need to load from my life cd to make sfdisk -d /dev/sda1 > backup-sda1.sf05:02
go8765 or its not necessary?05:02
franz_where to put downloaded plasma themes?05:02
LirthMiggs: I'm new to servers. What does headless mean?05:02
MiggsLirth, it's lacking a monitor.05:02
varatepescott: Where do I put the custom color.vim's? i made a .vim/colors folder in the home directory.05:02
LirthMiggs: Cool. That makes a lot of sense, thanks.05:02
CFHowlettgo8765   you mean to back up the mbr?  wait 105:02
MiggsIt just sits on the shelf and I only make it do things over ssh.05:02
escottGEEMac, and have you verified the uuid in fstab with that from blkid05:02
escottvaratep, .vim/colors05:02
go8765CFHowlett: yes. ok05:02
go8765il be wait05:03
varatepescott: Is that right though? I made a .vim/colors/ in the home directory05:03
MiggsIt's not completely headless since I do run XBMC on it but for all intensive porpoises it's close enough.05:03
varatepescott: it didn't have that .vim folder so i made it myself05:03
escottvaratep, thats absolutely correct05:03

ActionParsnipfranz_: http://forum.kde.org/viewtopic.php?f=67&t=8290505:05
go8765CFHowlett: hm.. thanks. so i need life cd to do this or not?05:05
CFHowlettgo8765   fwiw: last time I changed my mbr partitions, I had to reinstall grub and perform the windows repair.  It seems editing the parts changed the uuid's and thus restoring MBR didn't work.05:05
CFHowlettgo8765   yes live cd or a gparted cd05:05
curiousxaloha all05:06
MiggsActionParsnip, nothing comes to mind?05:06
GEEMacescott, I have no clue where to look for the uuid, this is a dual boot that was installed via wubi on a Windows 7 64bit system.  It was fine until I did an update and since then it stops at the Busybox/initramfs prompt.05:06
CFHowlettgreetings curiousx05:06
curiousxuuid? maybe blkid command?05:07
escottGEEMac, well lets start with by running "blkid" and comparing the output of that to the ouput of cat /etc/fstab05:07
curiousxsudo blkid05:07
GEEMacSearching the net shows that this is a known issue after an update.  Non of the little detailed fixes worked.05:07
curiousxaloha CFHowlett thx05:07
go8765CFHowlett: hm... another question - where is right variant ?  http://www.opennet.ru/tips/info/786.shtml or http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php?p=6828965&postcount=205:08
escottGEEMac, it might be an issue with wubi. i usually recommend using anything but wubi05:08
GEEMacEscott that is going to be a bit tough at the moment since I am rendering some video and it is on this system.05:08
[[thufir]]anyone know how to use dar with cdrwtools?  I don't know the syntax05:08
kenroHelp? When trying to install gkrellm in 11, it wants to remove my entire gnome dte?! Isn't gkrellm 'gnome-philic'?05:09
curiousxme to, i dislike wubi05:09
=== freestanding is now known as Bboy
GEEMacI did try the blkid and the cat/etc/fstab and it stated that it was not a command or it just sat there with no cursor.05:10
CFHowlettgo8765   try em both.  check your usb to see which one works.05:10
escottGEEMac, "cat /etc/fstab"05:10
GEEMacthat was something I tried earlier on when the isssue started.05:10
escottGEEMac, are you sure you are in the initramfs? what makes you confident that is the case05:11
kenroHelp? When trying to install gkrellm in 11, it wants to remove my entire gnome dte?! Isn't gkrellm 'gnome-philic'?05:12
GEEMacI was at the intiramfs prompt and I could do a Help and get the commands.  that's as far as I could get.  I will have to wait until this rendering is don and drop out of here to reboot this system.  Is there any working information on a webpage tha I can print out here?  I have spent a week trying all sorts of posts and no luck.05:14
ActionParsnipkenro: are there any bugs reported?05:14
kenroSeems to me conspi05:14
kenrooops miskey05:14
bazhangkenro, ubuntu-desktop package?05:14
escottGEEMac, how do you know its an initramfs prompt? there are other prompts in the boot process05:14
kenroActionParsnip:  Actually, never thought it could be a bug, as I've had repo configure problems as well...05:15
hot_wheelzany ubuntu tv people in here?05:16
GEEMacBercause it states intiramfs just above the prompt and the commands that can be listed are those used for intiramfs.  Apparently this is something posted all over the net with no working fix.05:16
bazhangkenro, what packages? ubuntu-desktop?05:16
bazhanghot_wheelz, try #ubuntu-tv05:17
kenrobazhang:  Say what? All I know is it's the package listed with synaptic. Simply, gkrellm. perhaps you ask if I'm using ubuntu... yeah.05:17
GEEMacJust above the intiramfs is the Busybox info.  then it stops right at the intiramfs prompt.05:17
hot_wheelzbazhang thanks05:17
bazhangkenro, ubuntu-desktop is perfectly safe to remove, its a meta package05:18
bazhangkenro, it does NOT remove the GNOME DE05:18
kenrobazhang:  Ah right, transitional pkg? I know this. I also know synaptic wants to remove gnome, replace with a couple random kde libs.05:19
bazhangkenro, if you'd care to pastebin the list we can take a look at it05:20
GEEMacI guess I will have to wait until much later to try the Cat....   I probably have another 2-3 hrs of rendering of this very long video project.05:20
straubstraub: /exit05:21
kenrobazhang: Could be related to (yet unresolved) repo misconfig? gpg keys, et al...? Synaptic wants to remove gnome, but apt says 'deps unresolvable...05:22
GEEMacAll I can say is that the Wubi install went fine and worked for a few months until I did the usual update and that was it for the boot up after that.05:22
kenrobazhang:  I'll pastebin my sources.list?05:23
GEEMacSorry Escott, I can't get any mor detailed than that.  I am just an end user of Ubuntu.05:24
bazhangkenro, the package list when you try to install gkrellm would be better05:24
varatepwhy do people use windows managers?05:24
escottGEEMac, if its some wubi specific issue i wont be able to say what to do05:24
Guest66348b/c they can?05:24
varatepI tried it, but it seems like it makes things difficult05:24
varatepNo shortcut keys05:24
unkrmsg ubttu hello05:25
CFHowlettGEEMac   per the wubi staff, it's a testing platform, not a long-term installation solution ...05:25
igor_hey, I'm having a problem getting VLC to play aMKv file.  It plays sound but the video is all green.05:25
GEEMacWell All I know is that it went smooth and worked for a while with not one issue.  It was a update while in Ubuntu that killed it, it was well past the wubi install.05:26

CFHowlettGEEMac   time to upgrade to a dual boot then?05:26

igor_the screen is not tintnted. its solid green , no video at all05:27
GEEMacApparently it is not a Wubi issue since a full week of reading the posts, it is an issue with all the installs after a certain update which I do not know what item in the update caused it.05:27
bazhangkenro, pastebin link?05:28
ActionParsnipigor_: try a different output method. x11 works well in most cases05:28

mosnoso deja-dup -- ubuntu's official backup tool -- can only do TWO incremental backups, then it's back to a full backup???05:29
igor_still no go05:29
ActionParsnipkenro: can you give the output of:  apt-cache policy gkrellm; lsb_release -a    thanks05:29
ActionParsnipigor_: is it the same in all players?05:29
bazhangkenro, what about installing those depends first?05:30
igor_other players the audio is way outta sync05:30
mosnowhat utter crap.05:30
igor_or they crash05:30
ActionParsnipmosno: why is it the official one?05:30
mosnoActionParsnip, it's the one that comes with 11.1005:30
ActionParsnipmosno: there are plenty of backup tools in the repos05:30
mosnoActionParsnip, it's the one that runs a service by default05:30
ActionParsnipmosno: so, doesn't mean anything05:30
bazhangmosno, use something different then05:30
mosnoActionParsnip, sounds pretty official to me05:30
CFHowlettmosno   deja-dup is not an ubuntu/canonical product05:30
ActionParsnipmosno: there is no official anything05:31
bazhangmosno, this is not channel rant05:31
mosnobut why is it doing a full?05:31
igor_i always thought VLC was the best, could play anything05:31
imrobertcan someone help me out with the fonts05:31

mosnobazhang, do you know how to make it work properly?05:31
mosnoie. indefinite incrementals/05:31
GEEMacCF,  If I think I followed the background of Wubi correctly, all it is is a way to install Ubuntu to a partition on your drive while you are in windows. I guess you can say it is a lasy way of doing the dule boot install... lol05:31

imrobertActionParsnip, yes05:32
mosnobecause a) i've already started using it, and b) it is the DEFAULT tool that comes with this OS05:32
ActionParsnipygukhi: shoot05:32
curiousxigor_: nvidia or ati ?05:32
mosnoie. it should theoretically work better than the rest and/or have better integration05:33
CFHowlettGEEMac   lots of wubi's get broken due to update - most famously, the great grub2 migration.  dual boot is more stable.  I reiterate: wubi is for trying ubuntu - not long-term use of ubuntu.05:33
imrobertActionParsnip, the text almost looks blurry05:33
bazhangmosno, so install something else05:33
curiousxwhat is the driver version ?05:33
mosnodoes anyone know how to make deja-dup do more than 2 incremental backups?05:33
bazhangmosno, we are just supporters, ranting wont change whats on the cd install05:33

mosnobazhang, that's true05:33
mosnobazhang, i'm just upset05:34
igor_i believe 280 , how do i chaeck05:34
GEEMacIff you Google Busybox intiramfs you will get a ton of hits on it and so far non of the fixes worked yet. Guess it's back to a re-install and hrs of tweaking again.05:34

bazhangkenro, try installing the depends, first05:34

GEEMacAnd ..... not updating the install when it is working...05:34
curiousxit will install 295 wich is better than 28005:35
kenrobazhang:  Did. It will install gkrellm first. Falling back into the errors.05:35
curiousxi ran into some cooler troubles with 28005:35
bazhangkenro, you have kde4 installed as well? sounds like a bug05:35

Halexander9000Greetings from Eastern Europe, gentlehumans! I have 495 png files. I use this command to combine them into a video file at 16 frames per second: "ffmpeg -i 'frame%d.png' -r 16 out.mkv".

curiousxpaste the error06:34
igor_Could not find GStreamer caps mapping for FFmpeg codec 'h264', and you are using an external libavcodec. This is most likely due to a packaging problem and/or libavcodec having been upgraded to a version that is not compatible with this version of gstreamer-ffmpeg.

waxstonediver crtl-X to boot07:32
scientes_i was making a self-congratulatory joke07:32
waxstonediverdude, press crtl-x to boot07:32
waxstonediverdude, saves automatically I believe through grub menu07:33
dr_willisaltering grub at boot does NOT save it permently07:34
scientes_after changing a grub setting you have to run update-grub07:34
dr_willisedit the grub configs for perm. changes07:34
scientes_if you change FROM grub, then it actually does same it07:34
scientes_but not on btrfs07:34
scientes_*does save it07:34
zykotick9dr_willis: +1 /etc/default/grub for most stuff, and "sudo update-grub" if you make any changes07:34
dr_willisive never seen grub menu alter the grub.cfg scientes_  that could be dangerous07:35
scientes_dr_willis, well, its "save_end"07:35
self_test, hi to all07:35
scientes_i ran into it cause it causes a error on boot with btrfs, cause its not supported07:35
scientes_dr_willis, however grub DOES change the fs on boot07:35
SHOVELLi had some issues with gparted seeing the partitions but the computer boots fine and i can now read the partition table but gparted cant read the table07:35
waxstonedr_willis, oh thanks, so should he edit /etc/default/grub/grub after?07:36

scientes_hahaha, it was nice to have a snapshot for my upgrade to precise07:40
waxstonescientes_, what are btrfs?07:40
scientes_however i do know that btrfs isn't as fast07:40

ubottuwaxstone: Btrfs is a new filesystem available for Ubuntu. It is currently marked as experimental, and should not be used for important data. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/btrfs07:41
scientes_well, that didn't meantion any of the features you get with COW07:41
=== mikester01 is now known as mikester01|AFK
zykotick9zfs is super cool (it's almost like Windows System Restore) but running it on gnu/linux is silly, it's run using FUSE (though there is some other option as well), but it can't be included in the linux kernel due to licensing (which is unfortunate) </OT file system wish>07:43

scientes_zykotick9, actually it will if you properly chroot07:50
waxstonediverdude, are you comfortable with using the terminal?07:50
scientes_or you can also use grub-install --boot-directory however update-grub doesn't support that07:51

waxstonediverdude, reboot , hold shift, highlight recovery,press e , edit kernal line replace recovery with text07:59
waxstonediverdude, u will get a terminal07:59

zykotick9diverdude: ro on left side somewhere08:00
zykotick9diverdude: right side08:00
zykotick9diverdude: look for the / directory most likely08:01
diverdudezykotick9: it does say in the bottom: mount: warning: /etc/mtab is not writeable (e.g. read-only filesystem), ...08:01
zykotick9diverdude: i'm guessing your on a read only filesystem :(  might be possible to remount to read/write - but i'm not 100% sure how, so perhaps using the !grub chroot instructions is my "tried and tested" suggestion.08:02

dr_willisgr33n7007h:  use a live cd that has what you want08:30
theadmingr33n7007h: Try them all. Gnome is somewhat unnatural, it is hard to get used to. KDE is Windows-like. XFCE feels similar to Gnome2 (like the old, pre-Natty Ubuntu desktops). *box'es are pretty confusing at first, but WAY lightweight. LXDE is also Windows-like, but whereas KDE feels like, say, Windows 7 (with a load more features), LXDE feels like Windows 95 xD08:30

=== EgyParadox_ is now known as EgyParadox
=== rymate1234 is now known as rymate1234_
velkoDocPlatypus, i don't think so. you can set packages to "hold" and this will keep them in the currently installed version. but you cannot set to hold packages which are not installed. besides multiarch seems to be the next big thing in debian so they are pushing actively in this direction08:53
DocPlatypusvelko: I don't see what's so good about it. I've come dangerously close to hosing my system beyond repair because of it, because aptitude does not make it the least bit easy to see what's i386 and what's amd6408:54
DocPlatypusit just shows two of the same package. if I could hide all the i386 turds by default I wouldn't mind it as much, though I still strongly prefer all amd64 packages (unless I'm missing something regarding a reason why i386 packages *need* to be available)08:55
auronandaceDocPlatypus: using skype or 32bit flash?08:55
zykotick9DocPlatypus: multiarch is very much still in development!  dpkg multiarch JUST entered debian upsteam a couple of weeks ago!  keep in mind dpkg is what apt-get actually uses to install stuff.08:55
DocPlatypusauronandace: no skype. I prefer the 64-bit flash, since I'm on a 64-bit system it just makes sense.08:56
auronandaceDocPlatypus: or wine?08:56

monserhello all09:08
monserubuntu boots very slow09:08
monserit hangs on ohci usb 1.1.09:08
monserhow to fix that?09:08
monserI want like 3 min to start up09:08
velkomonser, do you have any usb devices plugged into the computer while it boots? you may try to booth without them and see if there is any difference09:11
AscavasaionHello.  I have just sent a file via bluetooth from a Windows XP machine to my Ubuntu machine.  However I have no idea where the file is now.  Can someone point me in the right direction to see where Ubuntu saved the file?09:13
vseris it possible to see inotify on the terminal09:13
auronandaceAscavasaion: check your home folder, i think there is a public folder09:14
Ascavasaionauronandace: No, it is not in my home Public folder.09:15
monseryes i do have09:16
velkoAscavasaion, isn't it better to right click the bluetooth icon and look up the preferences for the place it uses to store the files? i don't have bt on this computer so i cant click you trough09:16
monserits a external hard disk plugged with usb to ide/ sata cable09:16
monserif i remove it there is not difference09:16
monserI tried09:16
monserI mean if I unplug it09:16
velkomonser, it sill hangs on "ohci usb 1.1"? why?09:17
velkomonser, are your mouse, webcam, keyboard... connected via usb?09:17
AklsMy system went crazy. All apps are giving errors like "failed to contact configuration server" and something about d-bus, how can I fix everything?09:18
Ascavasaionvelko: That worked, thank you :)09:18
monservelko: no no such devices are connected09:18
monseris there a way to disble this ohci 1.109:18
monserthe usb are 2.009:18
velkomonser, you can blacklist the driver in /etc/modporobe.d/09:19
wswhere is the Debian package db (one retrived with dpkg -l) stored?09:20
monserhow to modprobe.d is a directory09:21
monserhow to blacklist it in a directory?09:21
velkows, dpkg -l does not retrieve anythong09:21
Daulityi got a problem with flash and my usb headset, the sound is klicking even when the flash vid is pauzed, the odd thing is the clicking stops when i drag a random window of the flash vid or when i switch tabs in the browser anyone know tis problem?09:21
velkomonser, you don't of course09:21
velkomonser, you first find out the exact name of the dirver via "sudo lsmod | grep ohci"09:21
monsercould you be more specific , please09:21
wsvelko: the list of packages (binary or text) in a file?09:22
cheaterwhat ever audio engine you are using, it has a priority comparable to flash, but flash is using up all cpu power09:22
velkomonser, then you pick a file in this directory and look for a line starting with "blacklist" - duplicate it and replace the name of the driver with the one you found out before09:22
cheatervelko: he has to copy the file to a new name before doing that.09:23
velkocheako, i don't understand what do you mean?09:23
velkocheako, sorry09:23
cheaterhe shouldn't be editing files that are already there.09:24
velkocheater, i don't understand what do you mean?09:24
velkocheater, why not?09:24
monserthat command does not show the driver09:24
cheaterbecause it is bad practice.09:24
monseronly these ohci1394     ieee139409:25
velkomonser, the ones containing ohci in the name will do09:25
velkomonser, just mark their names and blacklist them09:25
velkomonser, i don't know about ieee1394. don't blacklist it09:26
HaferstrohHello, does anyone knows if there exists a ppa for nautilus ?09:28
velkows, i don't know about which file you are talking. but it might help to lookup the files in /var/lib/dpkg09:30
KaizerSoze_sudo add-apt-repository ppa:am-monkeyd/nautilus-elementary-ppa09:30
KaizerSoze_sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade09:30
KaizerSoze_nautilus -q #restarts nautilus09:30
peterrooneyws, dpkg -L09:31
oCeanHaferstroh: please not that PPA's are 3rd party repositories and not supported!09:32
HaferstrohoCean,  is noted, but I got two really annoying bugs (I suppose these are bugs). First I cannot use the "send to" Dialog in nautilus e.g. if I want to send a file directly to evolution. Second is: if I plug in a USB device and open it in nautilus and while the window is open I unmount the device, nautilus shuts down09:34
iceroot!bug | Haferstroh09:35
ubottuHaferstroh: If you find a bug in Ubuntu or any of its derivatives, please file a bug using the command « ubuntu-bug <package> » - See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ReportingBugs for other ways to report bugs.09:35
Haferstrohiceroot, ubottu  I acutally did send it via launchpad. But maybe in a newer Version of nautilus these Problems are fixed.09:36
icerootHaferstroh: then you will get an info on that bug09:37
icerootHaferstroh: but its great that you filled the bugs, its always the best way to report issues and to get things fixed09:37
Haferstrohiceroot is there a "last version" ppa of nautilus or not ?09:38
icerootHaferstroh: no09:39
icerootHaferstroh: you could have a look at 12.04 if it is fixed there09:39
icerootHaferstroh: or ask in #ubuntu+1 if someone can reproduce your bugs on 12.0409:40
almoxarifeHaferstroh: I don't think a ppa version of nautilus would correct your issues09:40
Haferstrohiceroot I'll check it out via VBox. I am using gnome-shell maybe its a gnome3 issue ?09:40
icerootHaferstroh: but installing newer main-components is not a good idea in an older system09:40
almoxarifeHaferstroh: have you ran nautilus from terminal to see the what's what or looked at the logs?09:40
HaferstrohI dont think, that my hardware it that old09:41
icerootHaferstroh: the vm solution is a good idea09:41
icerootHaferstroh: older system = older ubuntu release09:41
icerootHaferstroh: not related to hardware09:41
Haferstrohthe terminal gives no output after nautilus closes down09:41
RocheLimitDuality, Flash is a general PITA as well as the the linux audio system. Have you got the most recent Flash version?09:41
Haferstrohiceroot, okay09:41
almoxarifeHaferstroh: the logs show anything?09:42
Haferstrohwhere do I find the nautilus log file ? Somewhere in /var .. ?09:42
ubuntuok how do i display model and serial number of computer with ubuntu terminal09:42
icerootHaferstroh: maybe /var/log/syslog09:42
almoxarifeHaferstroh: I would look in /var/log/syslog and kern.log09:43
icerootHaferstroh: if you are still facing the bug on 12.04 you should mention that on the bug, normally that will only be fixed for 12.04 and not older versions09:43

DaughainAnyone help me with mtab?11:48
dr_willisDaughain,  give details of what you are wanting to do.11:48
DaughainI wantn to get the system to stop mounting the first usb drive I plug in at /11:49
dr_willisat / ? / is the root of your installed system.11:50
dr_willisa usb drive should get mounted to some /media/nameornumber11:50
DaughainI know, and thats where its ounting it. Have a line in mtab telling it to.11:50
dr_willisI dont even see how thats possible.  its fstab that tells where things mount  also..11:51
Daughainfstab has a line that tells it to miount at root also.11:51
dr_williswhen you boot the system / is mounted allready. Plugging in a usb shouldent be remounting  / to it. that would mostliuley crash the system  idmeiatly11:51
DaughainI dunno, thats why I came here.11:52
dr_willisperhaps a  clean reboot and a pastebin of your /etc/fstab /etc/mtab and mount command output11:52
Veovis_MuaddibWhen setting up an SMB share, as secured here: https://help.ubuntu.com/10.04/serverguide/C/samba-fileprint-security.html I am unable to login from Windows 7.  I am given a login prompt that asks for a login, if I use my credentials it defaults to using WINDOWS\user and the login fails.  I've tried SERVER\user and that also fails.11:53
DaughainRebooted three times in the last 30 min.11:53
dr_willisthen pastebin the same files/info after inserting a usb.11:54
DaughainLemme reboit again, gonna try another e3dit.11:54
daughainOk, that solved it.11:59
sacarlsonVeovis_Muaddib: I guess removing security is not an option?  maybe replace with only allow certain ip addresses to access fileshareing12:00
daughain/dev/sdb1       /               ext4    errors=remount-ro 0       1     That line was in fstab, and was causing all my issues.12:01
sacarlsonVeovis_Muaddib: I was surprized to even get file shareing working at all with window 7 about a week ago (no security)12:02
geirhadaughain: That's why you always use UUID or LABEL12:02
Veovis_Muaddibsacarlson: Yeah, removing is not going to fly.  :P  It's not meant to dissuade someone cracking in, just make sure users can't read each other's documents12:02
Veovis_Muaddibsacarlson: Yeah.12:02
dr_williswhy would you even be editing the / entry in your fstab?12:03
daughaingeirha, Errr....That has been there since I installed. That came from the mint install I did.12:03
Veovis_Muaddibsacarlson: I can get it working fine with no security, but usually I have trouble with securing it.  I got it to work a few months ago and was bragging to other techies I know :P  But set up a new server and now it doesn't work12:03
dr_willislast i used mint - it used uuid type nameing in the fstab.12:03
dr_willisexample line...12:03
dr_willis# / was on /dev/sda6 during installation12:04
dr_willisUUID=422a7921-679c-4a7b-8d24-6b01e5795c65 /               ext4    errors=remount-ro 0       112:04
daughainDunno. Did a fresh i8nstall on a newly formatted drive using mint. Thats been there the whole time.12:04
sacarlsonVeovis_Muaddib: how about file share over ssh , that should also work on windows 7, maybe easier to setup security with thta12:04
theadmindr_willis: uuid looks ugly though, I want my fstab to look cute so I use labels. That's just me, there might be other cases.12:04
dr_willisdetermind the UUID of / and put it in there... if you are using mint, you should be asking for help in the mint channels.12:04
dr_willistheadmin,  I change my uuids :)12:04
theadmindr_willis: You can change them?12:05
daughainIm not, upgraded to Ubuntu 11.1012:05
dr_willistheadmin,  tune2fs command can change them i recall.12:05
Veovis_Muaddibsacarlson: Yes, certainly.  But XBMC media shares need to be accessable and I don't think XBMC works with sftp or anything like that12:05
theadmindr_willis: Oh... wow.12:05
dr_willisdaughain,  you upgraded to 11.10 FROM mint?12:05
daughainThats what it said.12:05
dr_willisdaughain,  im suprised that worked at all.12:05
Veovis_Muaddibdr_willis: Learn something new every day :P  Thanks12:05
dr_willisdaughain,  it may be worth the while to do a clean install of 11.1012:06
daughainNo clue, dr_willis , it offered the upgrade and I took it.12:06
dr_willisi would find it weird that mint would upgrade you to ubuntu...12:06
Veovis_Muaddibdaughain: That sounds terrifying.  I'd clean install now personally.12:06
MonkeyDustVeovis_Muaddib  clean install is easier and more efficient if you have a separate /home partition12:07
dr_willisMany of the ubuntu-spinoffs have big warnings on their web pages about NOT using the upgrade features to upgrade to the latest ubuntu. but wait for them to come out with their own upgrade path.12:07
* daughain shrugs12:07
MonkeyDustwrong nick12:07
dr_willisdaughain,  what does your lsb_release -a say?12:07
MonkeyDustdaughain   clean install is easier and more efficient if you have a separate /home partition12:08
daughainMy issue is solved, so Im happy.12:08
dr_willisdaughain,  id bet theres going to be many other issues in your future12:08
preetamhi my webcam freezes in ubuntu 11.10 while doing video chat..I have nvdia video card12:08
daughaindr_willis, I doubt it, thisi8s my wifes netbook, I just needed it to automount usb sticks.12:09
Sluaghmonkey_dust does using a /home partition with both, say, ubuntu and mint, cause no problems concerning the config files?12:09
MonkeyDustSluagh  yes, guess so12:10
dr_willisSluagh,  shareing the same home dir/user btween disrtos can cause issues.  you could set up each disrto to use its own sub dir on the same partition to keep things more seperate12:11
Sluaghmonkeydust so maybe using an extra partition for data files that you can even use with windows too would be better, so that you keep home directories for every distro you use?12:11
daughainlsb_release says Ubuntu 11.10 oneiric12:12
dr_willisdaughain,  consider yourself lucky the system even booted after upgrading from mint to ubuntu.12:12
MonkeyDustSluagh  that would be media files, then, i can think of no other12:12
Sluaghmonkey dust ok, but do i understand you right that using extra a seperated /home partition is useful if you upgrade or repair the system on root from time to time?12:13
daughainLeast its working now12:13
MonkeyDustSluagh  yes, it's what i do12:13
Sluaghmonkeydust i will try that. thank you!12:14

dr_willistry  that apt-get install line again...12:41
ronghailalready latest, or something to that effect12:41
doomgivercan someone tell me  what can be the side effecs of force-mounting a ntfs filesystem? that might have bad sectors?12:41

dr_willisdoomgiver,  possible dataloss or currupted files.12:43
ronghailit tells me unknown job ssh12:43
theadminronghail: Something wrong with the initscript itself probably :$12:43
dr_willis sudo /etc/init.d/ssh  status12:43
dr_willisRather than invoking init scripts through /etc/init.d, use the service(8)12:43
doomgiverdr_willis ok,any idea of the extent? will the disk become unusalbe? or will some sort of data recovery be possibe?12:43
ronghailyeah it says that here12:44
dr_willisdoomgiver,  no way anyone can predict.12:44
doomgiverdr_willis: and thanks!12:44
dr_willisdoomgiver,  if you want to get the data in the safest way. Image the disk to a file. perhaps using ddrescue then mount the file.12:44
ronghailmkdir /var/run/sshd; /usr/sbin/sshd12:44

ronghailnot the latest though12:46
doomgiverdr_willis: wont the image have the same 'defects' as the hdd? also, the disk is not mountable in ubuntu, it asks me to to "chkdsk" in windows (the disk has windows, and im unable to boot from it, and its a crashed one, the case was dropped from several inches while the systems was running)12:46
dr_willisor has upstart been the default for more then 4 releases?12:47
dr_willisdoomgiver,  ddrescue can try to recover bad sectors. thats its main feature. :)12:47
doomgiverdr_willis: thanks once again for taking your time out to answer me,12:47
crizzygagan6621: sounds completely normal12:47
dr_willisdoomgiver,  you dont need to mount it for ddrescue.12:47
gagan6621crizzy: is it ok..?12:47

Syriadr_willis:  Could you please help with this paste.ubuntu.com/877415/  ?12:47
dr_willisdoomgiver,  also you may want to put it in an usb enclosure and try  whatver disk-rescue tools the manafacture may have. After you image it.12:48
buzzmandtDoomgiver                                                                     sg12:48
dr_willisSyria,  a summary of the problem would be nice.12:48

Syriadr_willis:  I am trying to upgrade to 11.10 but I get a message telling me "Forbidden Ip"12:49
crizzygagan6621: that's what fanboys want you to believe, but totally not true :)12:49

Syriadr_willis:  I have used a global proxy but it didn't work!12:49

doomgiverwait, did you guys say windows 7 is less crashy and faster than linux?12:50
ico666doomgiver: hi12:50
dr_willissattu94,  up? it was reading from a usb-enclosuer..12:50
MonkeyDustcrizzy  completely true, except for the words used12:50
theadmindoomgiver: Just ignore the trolls12:50
doomgiverthen please explain how i can get 10 second boots with a optimized arch build?12:50
dr_willissattu94,  ddrescue can stop/restart/continue its operations also..12:51
crizzydoomgiver: win7 never crashes on me, ubuntu/unity/regular desktop apps on linux on the other hand crash 5 to 50 times / day12:51
sattu94dr_willis: No, Power wise ?12:51
theadmindoomgiver: I'll call the ops, give me a sec12:51
doomgiverico666: yo12:51
dr_willissattu94,  Huh? I plugged the flakey usb drive into my desktop box...  and used ddrescue12:51
sattu94dr_willis: No, dint the lights go away ?12:51
DocPlatypusSyria: what program is telling you "forbidden IP"?12:51
dr_willissattu94,  What?12:52
sattu94dr_willis: So you had continuous ? electricity for the whole week ?12:52
dr_willissattu94,  err.. yes..12:52
DocPlatypusSyria: you should, at minimum, be able to install what's on the CD/DVD without having to worry about network configuration12:52
sattu94dr_willis: WoW.12:52
* dr_willis has 6+ Mo uptime on many of his machines.12:52

Kingstonei'm looking for a linux system to install12:54
MyrttiKingstone: you're welcome to continue that discussion in #ubuntu-offtopic12:54
theadminKingstone: It's not "better" nor "worse". It's somewhat unique though. Ubuntu has developed it's own dekstop, Unity, which I find to be awesome for netbooks or touchscreens, for example. It has a few other tools you won't find elsewhere, too12:54
DocPlatypusdarn... I tried...12:54
doomgiverumm, Kingstone, nothign is 'better' per se12:54
researcher123after using the backup utility Deja Dup if I try to restore on a newly formated system, will the new users have same privileges as earlier?12:55
doomgiverKingstone: it all depends on your need12:55
DocPlatypusdoes the entire world have the country of Syria banned for some reason?12:55
DocPlatypussince apparently it's an issue for at least one would-be Ubuntu user12:55
doomgiverKingstone: eg, for speed, i'd use arch linux, if i wanted ease of use, i'd choose linux mint or ubuntu12:55

ubottudoomgiver: Official channel logs can be found at http://irclogs.ubuntu.com/ . LoCo channels are now logged there too; for older LoCo channel logs, see http://logs.ubuntu-eu.org/freenode/12:57
DocPlatypusziv_: a bunch of old/obsolete/less featured are still bundled, such as BitTornado and the original BitTorrent client in Python. I recommend not using them, however, and sticking with Transmission12:57
crizzygagan6621: that sounds a bit edgy.. try restarting the terminal if the cpu usage drops again..12:58
DocPlatypusziv_: I second theadmin's advice but I recommend against rtorrent unless you really need a console client12:58

monserhow can I have passwordless root account?13:23
theadminmonser: That's the default.13:23

trijntjemonser: that sounds like a really bad idea, dont do that13:24
pfifotheadmin, root has a password by default13:24
monseryes I know that it is possible to have root account with no password13:24
monserhow to do that?13:24
theadminpfifo: Uh not really, it's not set. It's not really empty either.13:24
pfifomonser, see my 'advice'13:25

Sidewinder1Sounds like a great idea. :-(13:26

monserwhy do you want to restrict the knowledge13:27
monsertrijntje: this is not an free soft attitude13:27
theadminmonser: Becuase it's silly to do silly things?...13:28
Kaizen"silly" and "bad idea" are opinions not truths, if someone wants to have a passwordless root it's up to them13:28
pfifomonser, type 'man shadow' to get all the details about what it is and how it works13:28
trijntjemonser: the point is that it's dangerous to do that. And if you have to ask help to set an empty root password, it *really* dangerous13:28

victor___Hi. Does it make any diference if I install ubuntu via USB stick or with the Windows Installer (WUBI) ?14:15
delinquentmetop line  ... and im calling it with "  . test "14:15
theadminvictor___: A lot of difference14:15
AchlysEpithetvictor___, Using WUBI, it'll install it under windows's bootloader.14:16
theadminvictor___: Normal installation is more stable, WUBI hardly ever works it seems14:16
AchlysEpithetAnd as an application... you'll get to remove ubuntu from software package remove/add.14:16
velkodelinquentme, not ". test" but only "test" or "/usr/bin/test"14:16
pfifodelinquentme, the file still needs to be executable and you must either place it in PATH or call it using a path14:16
victor___Okay, so just a regular usb memory stick is ok?14:16
itaylor57delinquentme, using a bash script named test is not a good idea, there is a bash command test14:16
MonkeyDustvictor___  wubi is a "pseudo installation", it cannot be upgraded and is more limited than a real installation14:16
theadminvictor___: Sure, long as it's big enough14:16
AchlysEpithetvictor___, its okay but it usually gives you a lot of issue in the long run.14:16

AchlysEpithetThat kept happening with my Jaunty.14:17

delinquentmeitaylor57, lolol i did! and there is another module called trial!14:17
theadminvictor___: Yeah, you need to set your bios to boot from your USB, if it can't you have to use a third-party tool like plop to boot your liveusb14:17
victor___Im refering to installing via usb stick, does it boot loading from it or how does it work? sorry for the confusion14:17

victor___Is there any reason 32bit is tagged as reccomended on ubuntu.com?14:18
AchlysEpithetvictor___, he meant like in wubi, I guess. :P14:18
AchlysEpithetvictor___, because many processors are 32 bit.14:18
victor___Ah okay but 64 just as stable?14:18
pfifovictor___, 32bit version supports more hardware than 64bit14:18
AchlysEpithetThough 64bit options are available, many softwares don't have their 64bit versions out yet.14:18
AchlysEpithetvictor___, its pretty stable.14:18
victor___Yeah i had some problems downloading 32bit libs the other day14:18
victor___To get them to run14:18
AchlysEpithetLike Flash doesn't have its 64bit out yet.14:18
victor___But running 64bit with 32bit libs is pretty much the same thing?14:19
MonkeyDustvictor___  32bit runs on both 32 and 64bit hardware -- 64bit only on 64bit hardware14:19
victor___Its not like im doing anything major14:19
AchlysEpithetvictor___, thats running a hummingbird in a wind tunnel.14:19
AchlysEpithetIt wouldn't matter much unless you need to utilise the processor's 64bit instruction set.14:19

AchlysEpithetAnd I believe it does have VT/x.14:20
victor___Im just gonna stream some video to my tv, and ply around with minor things14:20
victor___Ok thanks for the input14:20
victor___Do i just put the iso file on the stick and thats it? :P14:20
AchlysEpithetvictor___, still, 64bit is a good way to go.14:20
victor___Just wanna be safe:)14:20
AchlysEpithetvictor___, No not that way.14:20
AchlysEpithetUse unet boot in.14:20
AchlysEpithetWhat it basically does is extract the ISO file on a thumb drive.14:21
AchlysEpithetAnd then create a bootloader.14:21

bosongunder i have 11.10 and dont like unity. i installed gnome-shell and gnome-panel. i then choose classic gnomre]]14:34
maebarahey. i've got a little problem. when i try to luch Far Cry through wine everything works fine expect sound. there is no sound in game. anyway to fix it?14:34
AchlysEpithethttp://www.freedesktop.org/wiki/Software/Plymouth/Scripts , mi314:34
AchlysEpithetThats the whole documentations that you'd need.14:34
bosongi then choose classic gnome at login time14:34
AchlysEpithetBut apparently, its having no sample scripts.14:34
AchlysEpithetmi3, let me know if that does.14:34
AchlysEpithetvictor___, ping. :P14:34
victor___So before I venture to installing. I have now made the boot-thingy with UNetbootin. I used the 11.10 desktop amd64.iso, successfully. I am currently running windows on a single partition. A 600gb hdd with 60% free. So ubuntu installer can make this happen? Create a partition out of the sole and only one I have right now? And dual boot magic?14:35
AchlysEpithetOi, wb eon__.14:35
victor___Because the partition is all allocated space, even if its not used?14:36
AchlysEpithetX_0, can you do a tracert on eon's I need the last hop, my nmap refuses to start up.14:36
mi3AchlysEpithet: umm do you know i was talking about the script i pasted?  i increased it to 105 [see line 173] can you suggest how?14:36
AchlysEpithetvictor___, It doesn't matter. It'll automatically change the format of the partition.14:36
AchlysEpithetLets say you have a 500gig hDD.14:36
AchlysEpithetand 250 Gig is for windows.14:36
delinquentmehttp://  << is this a reserved IP address?14:36
AchlysEpithetAnd you have another 250 gig partition that you don't mind sparing.14:36
auronandacevictor___: it will resize14:36
AchlysEpithetSo you could use the rest of the 250G (Whether formatted or unallocated) to run ubuntu.14:36
mi3AchlysEpithet: umm sorry how to make it to 300?14:36
AchlysEpithetmi3, Gparted will guid you. You can pull a slider.14:37
victor___Ah okay, thanks :)14:37
mi3AchlysEpithet: is there some calculation?14:37
AchlysEpithetIts all easy.14:37
victor___Has it always been like that?14:37
victor___Well the last 5 years atleast14:37
AchlysEpithetmi3, I am sorry, I am not qutie aware of the frame limits as I told you.14:37
JohnNapsterin ubuntu source code (more exactly in the update-manager package), how can i get the currenty installed ubuntu version? i am writing a patch and want to fix a string to say "Ubuntu %s is blah blah blah" % version     what should i put instead of the 'version' reference  ??14:37
victor___Anyway, reboot time :)14:37
bosongdelinquentme it looks like an apipa address for internal networking only14:37
AchlysEpithetvictor___, Sort of. xD14:37
mi3AchlysEpithet: can you explain me the calculation that has been done?14:37
victor___wish me luck, although im certain its not needed :P14:37
victor___Thanks alot AchlysEpithet14:37
AchlysEpithetmi3, I'll check 173 quick.14:37
velkovictor___, do a backup first14:37
AchlysEpithetvictor___, naaah. thats all right14:37
theadminJohnNapster: This isn't really helpful, but you can look at /etc/*-release files and the output of various lsb_release commands. e.g. on a 11.10 system, "lsb_release -sc" will return "oneiric"14:38
JohnNapsteri want the number, like "12.04"14:38
bosongdelinquentme The Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) has reserved for Automatic Private IP Addressing. As a result, APIPA provides an address that is guaranteed not to conflict with routable addresses.14:38
AchlysEpithetAs far as I understand, it defines when after reaching particular number of frames it loops back, mi3?14:38
AchlysEpithetI just checked the synatxes and all, I didn't see all of it really.14:39
theadminJohnNapster: lsb_release -sr14:39
mi3ohh i see!14:39
AchlysEpithetBut the code looks clean, mi3.14:39
JohnNapstertheadmin: i cannot use that command in a script14:39
mi3i want it to stop looping and continue14:39
AchlysEpithetUmm.  could run it on an environment maybe.14:39
AchlysEpithetmi3, thats that you ded in line 169.14:39
delinquentmebosong, thanks much!14:39
JohnNapstertheadmin: i cannot use that command in a script... i am fixing the update-manager source code14:40
theadminJohnNapster: Depends on your programming languages, most have some statement like exec() or system() or whatever.14:40
JohnNapstertheadmin: which would you recommend?14:40
AchlysEpithetmi3, you set loop = 0;14:40
theadminJohnNapster: Which ARE you coding in?14:40
JohnNapstertheadmin: python14:40
mi3ok how do I stop it from looping?14:40
=== Wicet|2 is now known as Wicet
JohnNapstertheadmin: which python command would you recommend?14:41
AchlysEpithetmi3, Not very sure. I can say from line 173 that it'd start looping after reaching particular number of frames.14:41
mi3i hate to see it looping from frame 61 i guess14:41
AchlysEpithetIndeed. -.- . Loops freak me out.14:41
JohnNapstertheadmin: something like platform.version_string()14:42
mi3i am referring to line 17514:42
theadminJohnNapster: Something like this would work...: ubuntu_version = os.system("lsb_release -sr")14:42
theadminJohnNapster: Not too into Python personally, not sure if there is a native way to get it (probably not)14:43
pfifotheadmin, no, that returnt she exit code14:43
velkotheadmin, i don't think so. this will return the exit status of the command14:43
theadminpfifo: Oh, doh... How would I go about getting the output?14:43
pfifoJohnNapster, open, /usr/bin/lsb_release and READ it, it is a python script14:43
JohnNapstertheadmin: platform.system() returns "Linux"  ...  i want something that would return "12.04" or "11.10" or.... you get the idea14:44
theadminJohnNapster: I know what you mean, I don't think it's possible to do it by a simple function call14:44

theadmindelinquentme: Get rid of the spaces14:51
iconscan anyone help me with this !! I want to change the default gnome-launcher-panel-icon so when adding a new menu item the icon is a different one to the default spring looking icon14:51
ablysstheadmin, spaces are not allowed in bash e.g., blah=$(command)14:51
theadminablyss: That's what I said just now, I forgot bash is so picky (been coding in Perl for the past few days which has a somewhat similar syntax in many things)14:52
delinquentmeawesome! TIL i why the $ is used to denote bash14:52
delinquentmetheadmin, +10 points14:53
theadmindelinquentme: lol, well -- yeah, spaces. If you want the variable to be available to child processes (things you start from this shell/script) you'll have to export it.14:54
JohnNapstertheadmin: nope, it isn't the gnome-system-monitor14:54
theadminJohnNapster: Ah sorry, hm... Not sure what else it may be then.14:55
JohnNapstertheadmin: it's the Overview window... i can't remember how i opened it14:55
theadminJohnNapster: I've not used Ubuntu for ages so that doesn't ring any bells xD I remember that the system monitor used to have some page with basic system info, at least earlier14:56
bosongtheadmin what are you using just now ?14:57
theadminbosong: Right now? Windows 7. Well, my main operating systems are W7 and Arch Linux, with Gentoo on my shell account. This is also offtopic.14:57
JohnNapstertheadmin: it does, but it isn't the thing that has the typo in it14:57
velkono_gravity, gzip and bzip can compress only single files, no directories. for this reason you can use tar to concatenate all files from a directory into one file. and use gzip or bzip to compress it. you can also tell tar to compress the archive on the fly (with the options z or j). but you cannot specify the compression level14:57
JohnNapstertheadmin: it's sort of like the ubuntu About box14:58
MonkeyDustJohnNapster  12.04 is still in development, it will be corrected, imo14:58
velkono_gravity, your command is correct. but if you want to select the compression level, you have to split it in two steps14:58
theadminJohnNapster: Hmmm.... Dunno where you found that xD14:58
no_gravityvelko: ok, i will go with the default compression level14:58

ChurchPickleface: sounds like bootup process is waiting for something to complete/timeout. If you have that gui with progressbar thingie on boot, you can press 'esc' to switch to more verbose text mode and see what actually is slowing down things16:47
victor__even tried service gdm3 stop and invoke-rc.d gdm3 stop16:47
PicklefaceChurch: I get like 4 options on bootup now ? If I just leave it for a while it boots up by itself?16:48

ChurchPickleface: i don't mean options in bootloader, but later on, when booting16:48
dr_willisvictor__,  what release of ubuntu are you using?16:49
ChurchPickleface: .. i'm veeery distantly guessing from powerbutton mention that you are not shutting down, but simply powering off, which might be bad in that sense, that filesystems need checking on boot, so if very big filesystems, sometimes it might take long time16:49
victor__dr_willis,  11.10 desktop x6416:49

ubotturoot_: 如欲獲得中文的協助,請輸入 /join #ubuntu-cn 或 /join #ubuntu-tw16:52
ChurchPickleface: for more speedy access filesystems cache things in ram and only ocasionally sync changes to filesystem. hence on normal shutting down changes get properly synced to disk and filesystems unmounted. <- just use normal shutdown from menu/whatever.16:52
root_好 谢谢16:52
dr_willisryannathans,  xming works very well. but it can be a bit confuseing to someone thats never used ssh/X/Xforwarding. but its wizard works well.16:52

ex0or use... sudo init 016:52

eQuiNoX__hi guys, could someone help me compile this right? http://paste.pocoo.org/show/563820/16:55
ChurchPickleface: i already told you. you should 1st confirm if that was the case, eg. if on boot you have for very long time 'checking filesystem blablabla', then probably that's the reason. and simply use normal shutdown to prevent such problems in future instead of pressing power button.16:56
victor__Hmm and now to start it? :P sudo /etc/init.d/lightgdm start ?16:56
PicklefaceChurch: kk16:56
MonkeyDusteQuiNoX__  in human language, please?16:56
oCeanMonkeyDust: dig, ls -l /boot/grub will just show contents of grub directory, that's definitely not install date (not for me at least) If I run ls -al /etc/issue for example I think that's the date I actually installed this laptop16:56
ChurchPickleface: i'm guessing that shutdown command shouldn't be that hard to find in whatever GUI desktop environment you use menus.16:56
MonkeyDustdig  take oCean 's advice, it's more accurate16:57
eQuiNoX__MonkeyDust: um, sorry. i tried compiling the code snippet in the link, with a command that ive shown in the link; i think im doing the linking part wrong. could someone check that out?16:57

jwtiyarGASSYPOOTS, if u have problem with showing the grub menu install Boot0repair17:00
digMonkeyDust: it showed january 27th but i installed ubuntu a few days ago :) ls -l /boot isn't that bad. Just search for the first file in there and it should be it17:00
velkoeQuiNoX__, and you don't need the /usr/include and /usr/lib parts17:00
dr_willisGASSYPOOTS,  its also possible its just not seeing the windows install. 'sudo update-grub' Might show windows/detect it. and fix the hidden menu issue17:00
dr_willisfor some annoying reason - if ubuntu is the only os installed. the default is to hide the grub menu.17:01

velko_antaras, but you don't see your connection still?17:41

JohnNapstercompiz is a merge of two projects: fusion and ???17:42
JohnNapsteror is it the other way round17:43
JohnNapsterfusion is compiz + someting else17:43
JohnNapstercan't remember17:43
salmiakJohnNapster: beryl?17:43
JohnNapsterso fusion is compiz+beryl17:43
JohnNapsteror is compiz = fusion+berl  ?17:44
antarasvelko_,  what can i do ??17:44
icerootJohnNapster: compiz fusion = compiz + beryl17:45
JohnNapsterwe now have compiz... is that the old compiz we knew and love?17:46
irrumat0rIs it recommended to install Python 2.7.2 on Ubuntu 10.04 LTS (default one it comes with is Python 2.6.5), or will that break stuff?17:46
salmiakJohnNapster: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Compiz says  "2007 merge of the Compiz and Beryl (a fork of Compiz) communities results in "Compiz-core" (only core functionality of compiz and base plugins) and "Compiz Fusion" (the plugins, decorators, settings tools etc)"17:47
velko_antaras, no ideas. kill nm-applet and start it again?17:47
dlentzirrumat0r, do you need python 2.7 for some program?17:48
brianp1992can someone help me setup an ftp file server?17:48
antarasvelko_,  ok man .. thanx  :)17:49
salmiakJohnNapster: on the other hand it says that "2009 a conference call was held between developers of Compiz, Compiz++, NOMAD and Compiz Fusion where it was decided to merge the projects together into a unified project, simply named Compiz"... I don't know much about love though.. :-)17:49
JohnNapsterso is compiz the latest and greatest compositing window manager?17:50
JohnNapsterfor the X windowing system17:50
brianp1992can someone help me setup an ftp file server?17:50
MonkeyDustJohnNapster  to me: no, i don't like compiz17:50
JohnNapsteryou like xfce better?17:50
DarxusLast night I used update-manager to upgrade from natty to oneric.  Today when I run "aptitude -f install" I get this:  http://www.chaosreigns.com/tmp/brokenpackages.txt  How do I resolve this mess?  Attempting to remove qdbus doesn't help, it's not installed.  (I've been using debian/ubuntu for probably about 10 years.)17:51
salmiakI don't use compositing at all so about greatest.... well I don't know....... :-D17:51
AcidRaindoes anyone know how to test if my server will relay emails from anyone?17:51
AcidRaini want users to be registered before it relays17:51
JohnNapsteryou don't like fancy stuff on your screen then :)17:52
DarxusAcidRain: Google search for open relay test?17:52
MonkeyDustJohnNapster  i don't17:52
JohnNapsterso if i were to remove compiz from my system... would i be left with a bare console?17:53
theadminJohnNapster: Nah, just no window borders17:53
MonkeyDustJohnNapster  you could use gnome fallback17:54
JohnNapstergnome-fallback  ?17:54
salmiakJohnNapster: as little fancy and animations as possible is what I prefer yes. the operatingsystem/desktopenvironment/windowmanager should be as little eye-catching as possible. I did like compiz zoom-function though.... I haven't found an ok non-compiz desktopzoom.17:54
JohnNapsterisn't xfce another windowind manager?17:55
irrumat0rdlentz: well, a lot of stuff I'm downloading use modules that become part of the standard library as of 2.7.2 which aren't there in 2.6.5, and that's the lastest version of Python 2 so...17:55
AcidRaini just setup a mail server in about 45 seconds...17:55
antarasvelko_,  are you here ??17:55
AcidRainwith no relay access17:56
irrumat0rdlentz: but I've found success so far just getting the modules I need from pip17:56
velko_antaras, yes17:56
JohnNapsterguess not17:56
salmiakJohnNapster: yes. XFCE is a window manager. Xubuntu is not neccearly "lighter" than the gnome thing when it comes to ubuntu I believe though17:56
JohnNapsterxfce is a desktop environment, just like unit, but xfce is very lightweight17:57
JohnNapsterunit = unity17:57
velko_antaras, but not for very much longer. i'm waiting for my washing machine to finish and i'm going to drink beer17:57
dlentzirrumat0r, choosing the default version of python is easy with the alternatives system17:58
antarasvelko_,  ok :)  if you can check this17:58
antaras http://pastebin.com/S9Ut8NKp17:58
JohnNapsterxubuntu has xfce installed by default17:58
antarasvelko_, http://pastebin.com/xsC3pKyV17:58
irrumat0rword dlentz17:58
dlentzso you can make 2.6.5 the default and run python 2.7.x programs with "python2.7 <program>"17:58
JohnNapsterthat's why the X in ubuntu17:58
salmiakJohnNapster: yeah sorry. xfce is the desktop environment, xfce's window manager is called xfwm17:58
JohnNapsterthat's why the X in Xubuntu17:58
velko_antaras, what about it?17:59
mintman_dr_willis:  Is it illegal to lookup the ip adress of the service provider ur attached to my ip tracer or ip tracker?17:59
antarasvelko_,  where is my wlan0 ??17:59
antarasim connect with wifi now and my wifi card isnt here ..17:59

JohnNapstersalmiak: are you perhaps nolaunchpad?18:00

JohnNapsteri am on a netbook right now... is there any ubuntu version targeted for the netbook spacifically?18:01
JohnNapsterlubuntu  ?18:02
JohnNapsteri am on a system with only 4 GB SSD18:02
FyodorovnaJohnNapster, unity is the closest but no actual netbook version18:02
JohnNapsterand the standard ubuntu is kind of heavy18:02
satyanashFyodorovna, use Xmonad.18:03
salmiakJohnNapster: launchpad? that is the bug tracking website right? I don't think I've used that no. not so I remembere any login anyway.18:03
satyanashFyodorovna, If you can Handle it.18:03
superdave321I "upgraded" to ubuntu studio from vanilla using this article: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Ubuntu%20Studio%20Upgrade%20from%20Ubuntu Now my audio is not working. how do I get it back?18:03
JohnNapsterlaunchpad is project-hosting websit18:03
JohnNapsterit hosts ubuntu as well and all the packages...18:04
satyanashSomething like GitHub or SourceForge..18:04
JohnNapsteri thought you were a dev18:04
salmiakJohnNapster: you should try Lubuntu perhaps, it should be the lightest ubuntu distribution I believe. shouldn't eat too much disk space either. it uses LXDE desktop environment instead.18:04
Fyodorovnasatyanash, read the posts, if you can handle it. :)18:05
JohnNapsterdo you happen to know how to make a bootable usb key with Lubuntu on it  ?18:05
satyanashFyodorovna, Haha..18:05
JohnNapsteri don't have a CD-ROM in this netbook18:06

Fyodorovnasatyanash, personally I have net met a open source I could not run, but thanks for your concern. :)18:06
antarasvelko_,  disconnected sorry  ..  tell me again18:06
antaraswhat r u want to paste  ??18:07
salmiakJohnNapster: no, but google knows:  http://www.pendrivelinux.com/put-lubuntu-on-a-flash-drive-using-windows/   :-D18:07
satyanashFyodorovna, I was talking to JohnNapster, actually. And by Handling I meant changing the default configging for Xmonad can be slightly complex for begineners.18:07
satyanashFyodorovna, But you probably knew that.. :)18:07
velko_antaras, please pastebin the content of /etc/network/interfaces and the output of "sudo iwconfig". and do it quick - the machine is done :)18:08
JohnNapstersalmiak: i'm on ubuntu precise right now18:08
JohnNapsteri wanna put lubuntu from ubuntu on a usb key and make the key bootable18:08
JohnNapsterwill pendrive do the job?18:09
antarasvelko_,  only this on interface auto lo18:09
antarasiface lo inet loopback18:09
velko_antaras, what does this mean? you have only lo in interfaces?18:10
antarasvelko_,  http://pastebin.com/fSnxPW4H18:10
antarasi dont have idea ..18:10
JohnNapstersalmiak: your link instructs to do that from within windows18:11
velko_antaras, ok - eth1 is your wireless card18:11
JohnNapsterwylde: are you here?18:11
salmiakJohnNapster: oh.. sorry. I just did a quick search with google. there must certainly be similar program for linux yes18:11
JohnNapsteri know it is18:12
velko_antaras, connected to "Free spot ... ;-)". maybe for this reason network manager does not recognize it? maybe it expects wlan0? but this is only a speculation18:12
velko_antaras, sorry dude - i'm off now18:12
OerHeksJohnNapster, you can use the tool in 'precise' too18:12
JohnNapsteri used one when i installed this precise beta118:12
JohnNapsterbut it didn't had the option to create a bootable usb stick for the lubuntu os18:12
MiggsHey guys, when my laptop screen blanks the backlight stays on. Making it kinda power hungry. Any way to turn that off as well?18:12
antarasvelko_,  thanx man anyway :)18:13
JohnNapsterOerHeks: you mean the startup disk creator ?18:13
DarxusThe answer to my question about my broken packages appears to be: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/aptitude/+bug/831768  - aptitude is completely broken on oneric and precise.  WTF?18:13
ubottuLaunchpad bug 831768 in aptitude (Ubuntu Precise) "aptitude cannot handle conflicts with multiarch enabled" [High,Triaged]18:13
OerHeksJohnNapster, yes18:13
wyldeJohnNapster: yep, what's up?18:14
JohnNapsteri'll try18:14
JohnNapsterwylde: which font does the  gnome-control-center use ?18:14
wunnlemy unitys randomly keeps crashing when i press alt-tab. i can re-run unity by dropping the console, but it started to get annoying.18:14
OerHeksJohnNapster, if you have issues creating, then you better join #Ubuntu+1 for precise support.18:14
wyldeUbuntu or Ubuntu bold18:15
AcidRainyay i have 1 fully operational server!18:15
wyldeJohnNapster: the ubuntu logo is lower case... look through the wikik titles etc. It's deliberate not a typo18:15
JohnNapsterthat "ubuntu 12.04 LTS"  bold sign18:15
JohnNapsterso it's an image?18:15
JohnNapsteri see18:16
wyldeJohnNapster: yep, it's part of a png18:16
JohnNapsterthat's why the "ubuntu" text is a little bit higher than the remaining "12.04 LTS" one18:16
JohnNapsteri see18:16
OerHekswunnle, what videocard do you use, and did you install drivers for it?18:16
JohnNapsternice to know18:17

Guido1hello, If i want to aces the maps on a special computer with xp i get the message "can't find list for shared maps" - i can acces the folders on another xp18:17
Guido1al are in the same intranet18:17
thechrisHelp, Firefox is now black background with black text.18:18
OerHeks'special computer with xp'.. how is that different from the other xp?18:18
wunnleOerHeks, unfortnately, i have a damn optimus thing. dual videocards, GT540m and Intel. i removed driver of nvidia, so ubuntu uses intel now.18:18
AcidRainGuido1: this is ubuntu channel18:19
OerHekswunnle, ahhh you have optimus, please look at Bumblebee , and there is also a #Bumblebee channel, those guys are up2date18:19
wunnleOerHeks, on freenode network, right?18:20
thechrisThis is actually very annoying18:20
thechrisI'm pretty sure apt broke this18:20
thechrisThere really needs to be an apt undo18:20
AcidRainthechris: i agree. i could of sworn that one time someone in this channel gave me a command to fix things like this18:20
JohnNapsterwylde: i have another question for you18:21
newhaskelleri have a question regarding my PS118:21
OerHekswunnle, yes18:21
AcidRainlol ps118:21
Guido1AcidRain: perhaps that is the reason why i can't add the printer from the xp on ubuntu, but for another xp can find the printer, if i enter the part. do you know a lot about conectin network printers?18:21
newhaskellerI just did PS1="\e[0;31m[\W]\$ \e[m "18:21
newhaskellerand this causes the cli to behave strangely..18:22
wunnleOerHeks, i spend hours on this channel to install a proper bumblebee on my last ubuntu installation. On this installation, a friend mine suggested to install nvidia driver, so it would work without problems with intel one. Is that a lie :P ?18:22
JohnNapsterwylde: how can i get the currently installed version of ubuntu in a python script  ?18:22
AcidRainGuido1: i know that ubuntu can handle just about any type of external usb device that you through at it out of box18:22
newhaskellerall i wanted was to change the color and only display relative path of present directory18:22
newhaskellerwhat did I do wrong?18:22
AcidRainGuido1: it handled my neural impulse actuator pretty well :)18:22
OerHekswunnle, i do not own an Optimus, i believe all you need is the graphic-card switcher to make nvidia work properly18:23
AcidRainwunnle: u need hax18:23
wunnleAcidRain, what is that?18:23
OerHekswunnle, it is far from perfect, it still uses a double xorg18:23
JohnNapsterwylde: so if i have a string "You are running Ubuntu %s" % version18:23
thechrisUpdating firefox doens't help18:23
JohnNapsteranone else knows this?18:24
thechrisAlso, firefox doens't send any messages to teh console18:24
JohnNapsteranyone else knows this?18:24
AcidRainwunnle: hax: n Something deemed unfair or unexpectedly unfavorable. Could be used to accuse someone of using cheating/hacking/some sort of trickery to accomplish something, usually jokingly.18:24
Guido1AcidRain: perhaps it is easyer if i give the computers a name. computer "1": xp with printer; computer "2": xp using printer from 1; computer "3": ubuntu and i want to print via computer 1, but it does not work18:24
jfisk1987hey guys18:24
JohnNapsterif i have a Python string "You are running Ubuntu %s" % version   --- how to get that version number of currently installed ubuntu?18:24
JohnNapsterversion =   ??18:25
muelliJohnNapster: check lsb_release18:25
OerHeksJohnNapster, you had that answer before, didn't you?18:25
AcidRainGuido1: let me get this straight here. im not a big person on printers. but i thought with a network printer it pretty much pulls up a web interface?18:25
AcidRainthe printer has its own ip address and what not18:25
JohnNapsterOerHeks: yeah, and i can't use this thing18:26
thechrisIts almost like one of firefox's dependencys was uninstalled18:26
thechrisis there anyway to fix this?18:26
Guido1AcidRain:: if i want to see the shared folders on "2" and "3" it is possible with every computer; if i want to see the shared folders on computer 1 it does not work - i only can see the computer18:26
