X-warriorJordan_U, yes, but, if I have a ext filesystem and try to format using mkt.ntfs it is supposed to give me an error, am I wrong?00:00
gdea73I was uninstalling FGLRX drivers, when I accidentally hit the standby button my new laptop, after which it wouldn't wake up.00:00

lagittajaHey guys. I'm in the process of dual booting win7 & ubuntu for F@H and I'm pretty much clear on the process except one thing, I'm gonna dedicate 20gb of space for ubuntu and I'm wondering about what type and size of partitions I need. I heard ext3 is recommend for folding?00:00
Jordan_UX-warrior: No. mkfs assumes that the user knows what they're doing and clobbers whatever happens to be there.00:00
gdea73I had to power it down manually, during which it made one loud click, and then when I restarted I was told there were errors on the filesystem. Then after that, /tmp wouoldn't mount on boot.00:01
urmanis that we enter into all and I was told that I have here one week and I could install ubuntu: (00:01
X-warriorJordan_U, so probably I forget to change it to ntfs00:01

X-warriorJordan_U, thanks :D00:01
haz3lnut<X-warrior> also may be some overhead differences in the filesystems, you sure there were no other files on the backup drive before you transferred?00:01
anonymous_hello00:01
X-warriorhaz3lnut, i'm sure, a brand new hard disk00:02
anonymous_can someone tell me how to launch the software application manually?00:02
Shojohi, what sodtware app?00:02
MrBusinessMy 11.10 system does not seem to have an /etc/inittab file. Is there another file I should edit instead if I want to change my default run level at boot?00:03
X-warriorhaz3lnut, any way, I'm doing a checksum sync right now just to check if something went wrong, thanks for your help men :D00:04
X-warriorJordan_U, thanks for your help too! :D00:04
haz3lnut<X-warrior> can you do a "du -sh" on each files system and see what the diff is?00:04
haz3lnut<X-warrior> np00:04
itaylor57!runlevel | MrBusiness00:04
ubottuMrBusiness: 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.00:04
Jordan_UX-warrior: I think you're still somewhat confused. Msdos partition tables have partition "types". But the "type" of a partition according to the partition table doesn't actually reliably tell you what filesystem that partition contains.00:05
urmanthat it gives me black screen when installing ubuntu?00:05
MrBusinessWell, there we go00:05

Jordan_UX-warrior: Among other things, there is only room for 255 different "types", yet there are more types of paritions than that possible and many types have collissions. For instance id 7 can mean HPFS/NTFS/exFAT, and id 82 can be Linux swap / Solaris.00:07
Ampix0xaviers3468 hey sorry. Ya i didnt do anything but install it im sure it's insecure as hell. Its working on the lan so far. how do i ftp though? dont see the option in putty.00:08

Nullifi3dniw00:09
Nullifi3dniwix: ubuntu?00:09
Nullifi3dlol00:09
niwixyes00:09
Nullifi3dno thats it... ubuntu is the gnome distro00:09
Jordan_UX-warrior: cfdisk only knows about the partition id, it knows nothing about filesystems.00:09
niwixubuntu comes by default with unity00:10
niwixand unity has aids00:10
niwixI want pure gnome00:10
Jordan_UX-warrior: "sudo parted -l" will report the correct filesystem because it's actually aware of filesystems. It checks what the blocks in the partition actually contain rather than just looking at the partition table.00:10

wirkolaqsCan I get help here?00:10
arandwirkolaqs: Yes, just ask00:11
Jordan_U!notunity | niwix00:11
ubottuniwix: 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 !classic00:11
niwixyes but, can It run gnome apps?00:11

xaviers3468Ampix0: to use SFTP you'll first need a SFTP client. You mentioned you had filezilla earlier, I'm not sure if that supports SFTP but popular as it is it should.00:13
X-warriorJordan_U, so if parted -l says both of it are : Partition table: msdos and Filesystem: ntfs, both of it are really ntfs and my problem with the difference between the two hard disk is the Sector size.00:13
Ampix0oh fantastic. same port? 22?00:13
xaviers3468Ampix0: Otherwise, just google "sftp client [insert operating system here]00:14
Jordan_UX-warrior: If parted says they're both ntfs then they're both ntfs. I won't speculate on the difference you're seeing in space used.00:14
Ampix0xaviers3468. Thanks a lot man. im gunna go test this from home. need a dynamic DNS service for my buddy here but we'll be good00:14
X-warriorJordan_U, ok! :D00:14

escottmiyuki, because thats what that feature does. the intended use is to quickly and easily arrange two windows side by side. you just drag them a little past the edge and they fill half the screen. you will have to find it in the settings and disable it. it will be called edge something01:35
haz3lnut<miyuki> it's a feature. when you drag all the way to edge, it does that to make room for another window on the other side.01:35

americai just had to do a hard reset cause ubuntu froze on me, and now the icon's in the file browser don't show up01:46
americai did a fsck after it rebooted and it fixed a couple things and then booted up nicely01:46
americabut now, something isn't right01:47
americano icons for anything01:47
escottamerica, nautilus didnt start or crashed right after it started. it happens from time to time just start it manually. if it is happening regularly thats different01:47

ubottuStephan: In den meisten Ubuntu-Kanälen wird nur Englisch gesprochen. Für deutschsprachige Hilfe besuche bitte #ubuntu-de, #kubuntu-de, #edubuntu-de oder #ubuntu-at. Einfach "/join #ubuntu-de" eingeben. Danke für Dein Verständnis!01:50
d21anthonyPreferably, I would like to be able to use CS4  use/ save files that can be accessed by ubuntu and CS4 . I have a 320gb hdd and 4gb ram01:50
escottOnixs, system wide binaries not managed through apt should either be in /usr/local/bin or /opt01:50
Mongoose_My monitor is on the brinks  and looks like I need another. Running Natty here and was thinking of another Samsung. What should I watch out for when purchasing a monitor so it is compatible with Natty?01:50
Onixsescott , its more of a python script01:51
escottd21anthony, so virtualization is nice because you can use ubuntu and cs4 at the same time, but (a) you have to have another license for windows and maybe cs4 (b) you have to divide your ram which might be a problem if you are working with large images01:52
Onixserrr, pyload .sorry01:52
dj_segfaultOnixs: If it's just one script, you can put it in /usr/local/bin.  If it's a bunch of files that make up an application, I like creating a directory under /opt01:52
d21anthonyhmmmm,01:52
escottd21anthony, wine costs no additional windows license but i don't know how the support is (check winehq's app compatibility list)01:52
escottd21anthony, and dual boot is dual boot01:52
escottd21anthony, and yet another option is virtualizing ubuntu as a guest under windows01:53
saintbasilQuestion: I'm installing lucid lynx alternate cd on an old computer w/ a new HDD. It doesn't recognize my HDD and offers some drivers to use. However none of the drivers seem to follow a make/model pattern...so how do I know which driver to pick for my seagate barracuda hdd?01:53
Loshkid21anthony: that probably rules out wine right there, since according to http://appdb.winehq.org, photoshop under cs4 doesn't run under wine....01:53
d21anthonyright, I saw that01:53
d21anthonygrr01:53
d21anthonyIm at a point where as much as I dont want to - I may have to do a dual boot01:54
dj_segfaultsaintbasil: The hard drive is not recognized?  What kind of hard drive is it?  That's unusual01:54
escottd21anthony, if you decide to virtualize it may be worth spending $50 to double your ram01:54
sauresMongoose_: I think you would have a hard time finding one that didn't work, you might to know that natty is end of life in april.01:54
d21anthonyIs there a way I can share a folder on both sides or something - kinda like a tunnell01:55
saures*like01:55
d21anthonyI think my ram is maxed out it's a notebook01:55
Loshkid21anthony: as for dual-boot vs. virtualbox, it comes down to whether you need to run linux and windows simultaneously or not/01:55
dj_segfaultd21anthony: Yes, that's easy, since Linux can read and write NTFS.01:55
escottd21anthony, ubuntu can read/write ntfs. virtualbox has its guest additions01:55
saintbasildj_segfault: it's a brand new seagate barracuda 500 gb 7200. It is not recognized because the firmware can't recognize HDDs that big (my guess), so I'd like to make a small aprtition. But I need to pick a driver first to do that01:55
motherbraindoes anybody know what arch then ZTE cricket phone is using is it ARM11 or something else the OS on it is 2.3 gingerbread01:55

hopstafarianhi all...trying to reset my forgotten mysql root password...am have done the skip-grant-tables command and logged in as root...anyone know what comes next?01:56
dj_segfaultsaintbasil: If the BIOS can't deal with a hard drive that big then no drivers are going to help you.01:56
d21anthonyThank you all, your input has been really helpful01:56
sauresMongoose_: doh sorry natty has another year past april my bad.01:56
dj_segfaultsaintbasil: One possibility is that it's not the absolute size, but number of cylinders.  Since it's all logical these days maybe you can calculate a different geometry with fewer cylinders that comes out to the same size.01:57
Mongoose_Saures , thanks for the info01:57
saintbasildj_segfault: well I'd like to try, I just need to know how to interpret  the esoteric driver names in terms of easily understood HDD names like western digital or seagate01:57
psusisaintbasil, shouldn't need any special driver... is this ide or sata?01:58
dj_segfaultLike I said, drivers are not going to help you.01:58
saintbasilpsusi: sata01:58
Loshkisaintbasil: I'd be worried your disk is DOA, depending on what you mean by 'not recognised'...01:58
psusisaintbasil, virtually all sata controller chips are AHCI compliant so the normal AHCI driver should just work01:58
Onixsits a buch of scrip. so /opt then. thanks dj_segfault01:58
saintbasilLoshki: I hope not01:58
Mongoose_Running Natty 11.04 here. What is the next upgrade and are all the "kinks" been worked out?01:58
Onixsbunch of script*01:59
saintbasilpsusi: i don't see anything labeled "ahci" on the driver list. I'm seeing things like "3w-9xxx"..."friq"...etc01:59
psusiMongoose_, 11.10 comes next01:59
saintbasilI'm going down the list it gives but it';s a long one01:59
KBentley57hey guys, I'm having some weird network problems.  I can ping a pc (windows) on my network, remote desktop to it, use the "connect to server" to connect to it, but when I click on "Browse the network" in nautilus, It says Opening "WORKGROUP" for a while, then spits an error "Unable to mount location"02:00
dj_segfaultOnixs: If there's one script that starts the program, you can create a directory under /opt then make a symbolic link to that script in your path, like "ln -s /opt/foo/foo.py /usr/local/bin/foo"02:00
KI7MTsaintbasil, Another thing to consider, the drive itself does not ahve a "driver per say", the drive controller does, be it sata scsi or hda. if the drive it not being seen, its more than likely the drive controller driver, not the drive itself.02:00
sauresMongoose_: oneiric and has been out for about 5 months02:00
psusisaintbasil, the regular ahci driver is loaded by default... try the livecd02:00
fbdystangHi, I just swapped out my comcast modem and my new one has a build in router. I can't access my ubuntu server now. Is it possible to access it by just plugging an ethernet cable between the new modem/router and my old router? Thanks02:00
Mongoose_If I install 11.10 and don't care for it is it easy to go back to 11.04 without disturbing anything? I never upgraded and this Natty is my first time with ubuntu02:01
saintbasilpsusi: the live cd install routine didn't recognize it either. tried PP as well as LL02:01
KBentley57Mongoose_, generally, you can't go backwards02:01
dj_segfaultsaintbasil: What, what make and model is the hard drive?02:01
KI7MTsaintbasil, is it being displayed in your BIOS?02:01
Mongoose_ok thanks02:01
saintbasildj_segfault: seagate, barracuda, ST3500641AS-RK. 7200 rpm02:01
psusifbdystang, what do you mean?  you mean you can't access your computer from elsewhere?  or that you have multiple computers locally and they can't see each other?02:01
KBentley57Mongoose_, Might I suggest, if you're comfortable with it, to install virtualbox?  and try 11.10 in a "sandboxed" enviorment?02:02
psusisaintbasil, boot the livecd and open the disk utility and see if it at least sees the controller02:02
fbdystangpsusi: I can't access it from elsewhere02:02
Mongoose_ok , will give that some thought KBentley5702:02
sauresMongoose_: you could clone the Natty then upgrade, see clonezilla.org02:02
saintbasilKI7MT: I don't know as the bios is apple firmware, as it is an imac g5 which is proven to work with LL. The HDD is another story I suppose02:02
dj_segfaultsaintbasil: I ask because I've read that certain external Seagate drives don't implement the real SCSI/ATAPI/etc interface, and actually do need drivers, so they don't work under Linux.02:02
psusifbdystang, then you need to configure the router to forward the appropriate ports, same as the old one02:02
Mongoose_thanks02:02
americanautilus won't start after boot02:03
KBentley57Mongoose_, have you every used any type of virtualization?02:03
fbdystangpsusi: ahhh, I think you are right. I will try and get back02:03
Mongoose_no02:03
saintbasildj_segfault: that would suck. i cringe at the thought of having to pay special attention to what hardware I can buy. It's happened before with printers...02:03
Loshkifbdystang: does comcast give you the password to your router/modem?02:03
dj_segfaultsaintbasil: This is internal, right?02:03
saintbasilyes02:03
KBentley57Mongoose_, open the software center, and install VirtualBox02:03
fbdystangLoshki: I had it for the old one, so I sure hope so02:03
dj_segfaultThen it's not a problem.  These were USB external hard drives.02:04
KBentley57after it's installed, you can play around / read up with it02:04
L3topKBentley57: if he wants to check out performance, etc, vbox is not really an ideal test platform... esp with 3d accel etc. I think Mongoose_ is much better off with the clonezilla idea02:04
dj_segfaultsaintbasil:  Do you have another computer you can hook it up to as a test?02:04
americaim having to issue "nautilus -q" after boot02:04
saintbasildj_segfault: no. I have a laptop but no enclosure02:04
KBentley57L3top, first time linux user, never used virtualization, how scary does cloning your hd sound?  Thats a disaster waiting to happen02:05
Mongoose_virtualbox ose?02:05
saintbasildj_segfault: and I got it at a best buy, so if I take it in and say "it doesnt work with linux" everyone's heads are gonna explode02:05
curiousxsolved =P02:05
Mongoose_ok02:05
KBentley57Mongoose_, no offense, I just know how confusing it can at first02:05
KBentley57Mongoose_, yes, ose02:05
Mongoose_:>))02:05
fbdystangpsusi: Let me see if this works: my new router can port forward to the old router, and my old router can assign itself a fixed ip?02:05
psusisaintbasil, also check that you have the drive connected properly and you might see if it has a jumper to force SATA I mode... some controllers are buggy and fail to negotiate with SATA II drives02:06
L3topit is incredibly easy, and fairly foolproof. whereas dealing with guest addons etc for subpar performance on vesa drivers... it sounds like a brilliant idea.02:06
Mongoose_well not sure to go with virtual or clonezilla02:06
Loshkifbdystang: I would be surprised if comcast allows customers to configure comcast equipment. Sounds like a support nightmare...02:06
psusifbdystang, just leave out the old router02:06
KBentley57Mongoose_, the issue is having a real experience, vs testing the os02:06
L3topjust my opinion.02:06
Mongoose_got it02:06
saintbasilpsusi: oh you're right, the jumper may be defaulted to the wrong pins...though defaulting a HDD to slave seems like a bonehead move02:07
Mongoose_I can understand that! Better safe than sorry02:07
KBentley57Mongoose_, with virtualbox, you don't risk the threat of trashing your current system02:07
psusisaintbasil, there is no such thing as master/slave with sata02:07
L3topplus... at the end of the day, you end up with a clone you can always revert to if you encounter other problems02:07
psusisaintbasil, the cable can only be connected to a single drive02:07
Mongoose_and i can try or use it for a week and then just unistall it is that correct?02:07
KBentley57Mongoose_, with a clone backup, you can try 11.10 for real, and go back to 11.04 later02:07
fbdystangLoshki, it is a modem/router. I assume they have to give me access to configure the router part of it02:07
KBentley57Mongoose_, yes02:07
justa partition in my ubuntu can't run  copy and paste02:08
Mongoose_ok, thanks for the info. Getting tired here and going to hit the sack. Thanks for your help02:08
saintbasilpsusi: I did remember seeing a jumper with pins, that's all. I can check it against the old one, since they're identical except capacity02:08
KBentley57Mongoose_, np02:08
dj_segfaultsaintbasil: Google says that drive has no jumpers.  As I would expect from a SATA drive.  There is no master/slave02:08
hyliani want to know how to install kde as minimally as possible. I don't want kubuntu, I want kde minimal install02:08
Mongoose_Good Night02:08
saintbasildj_segfault: then i've been looking at HDDs for too long :(02:08
hylianMongoose_, goodnight!02:08
KBentley57hylian, have you ever tried the ubuntu minimal install?02:08
L3topYou dont need to uninstall, if you clone, you will just overwrite the new install with the clone, whereas part of your hard drive will be eaten up in a vdi on virtual, which is not intuitive to get rid of. It doesnt simply go away if you uninstall vbox02:08
hylianKBentley57, not what I asked for, thanks.02:09
saureshylian: there is a minimal cd a net install you choose what you want.02:09
dj_segfaulthylian: I think you install kde-base and it brings in what it needs from there.02:09
L3topnight.02:09
I440rwhy does ubuntu not follow the FSH?02:09
CFHowlett!minimal|saure02:09
ubottusaure: The Minimal CD image is very small in size, and it downloads most packages from the Internet during installation, allowing you to select only those you want (the installer is like the one on the !Alternate CD). See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/MinimalCD02:09
hyliansaures, again not what I asked for, but thanks.02:09
KBentley57hylian, I know, but it has the option of installing a minimal system, from which you can grab the kde bits you want02:09
psusisaintbasil, check the manual for the new drive... usually there is a jumper you can set to force SATA I ( 1.5 Gpbs ) mode.. it usually isn't needed, but some controllers are buggy... and also boot the livecd, open the disk utility and see if it at least sees the SATA Host Adapter... if it sees that, but not the drive, then it's either connected wrong, needs that fall back jumper, or is doa02:09
hyliandj_segfault, thanks, that's what Iwanted... :)02:09

KI7MTsaintbasil, so just to be clear on the actual problem, you put a new drive in a mac laptop then tried to install Ubuntu via LiveCD or Alt CD and it failed to pickup the new hdd?02:10
Loshkifbdystang: the average comcast customer wouldn't know a modem/router if they sat on it. Even fewer would know how to configure one. Fewer still would know how to troubleshoot the result. Nothing personal, I just don't see what's in it for comcast. They'd rather lock the boxes...02:10
I440rat least not with terminfo02:10
dj_segfaultsaintbasil: Actually, is it possible the new drive is 6GB/s and your motherboard can't support that02:10
hylianKBentley57, i don't want to reinstall ubuntu, i simply wanted to just install kde, with existing dektop environments. thanks for the quick response though, you too saures02:10

I440rterminfo does not belong in /lib/terminfo it should be in /usr/share/terminfo02:10

iandanHi, I know we're on #ubuntu, but I'm curious, what is the main reason you stick to using Ubuntu and not changing to MacOS (let's say Windows is not an alternative)?02:11
saintbasildj_segfault: im looking at the manual now and indeed there is a jumper to limit it to 1.5 gb/s, just dont know if it's set by default. continuing to read before i take it apart again02:11
KBentley57gnome-disk-utility indeed02:12
saintbasilKI7MT: correct02:12
CFHowlettlandan please take this convo to #ubuntu-offtopic02:12
psusiiandan, because MacOS is proprietary and comes on overpriced hardware02:12
KBentley57+1.  I would snatch a macbook in a heartbeat, if they werent so overpriced.02:12
psusisaintbasil, it's not set by default02:12
I440rpsusi, so why is terminfo not where the fhs says it should be ?02:13
hylianKBentley57, no, i'll save that for when 12.04 comes out... LOL02:13
psusiI440r, good question... that's odd02:13

CFHowlettiandan   thanks for understanding...02:14
KBentley57hylian, I love the bare install.  It's especially handy when you're between updates.  It grabs the newest packages, whereas installing say 11.10 now would install, then have to grab mounds of updates02:14
KI7MTsaintbasil, well one way to test it is putting the original drive back in, and getting to the point of install where it does the hard drive detect. If it picks up you older drive, then you know the issue is with the new drive somehow.02:14
saintbasildj_segfault, psusi, KI7MT: thank you for the help, I think I've discovered my problem and I'll try the fix now02:14
hyliandj_segfault, thanks again. I see a base apps package, is that what you meant?02:14

hyliandj_segfault, yep, thanks again. I just really don't need all the extras that comes with kde. I'd rather use my own software for that stuff. hard to beat pcmanfm or thunar for speed, leafpad for notes, all much faster than what comes with gnome 3 unity or regular kde from kubuntu.02:18

KBentley57there is a unity hylian02:25

aaron_dlentz: i appended the info to my msg above02:36
dlentzoh, i see02:36
aaron_KBentley57: i can open up sound settings, but i don't see anything that might suggest turning the speakers off with headphones in02:36
KBentley57aaron_, do you have th hardware, input, output, and applications tabs?02:37
aaron_KBentley57: ya, i do02:37
xpr3sshow to learn code in ubuntu??02:37
KBentley57aaron_, what do you see in the hardware tab02:37
xpr3sswhere to start?? (programming)02:37
KBentley57xpr3ss, what language would you like to learn?02:38
CFHowlettxpr3ss   read up http://fullcirclemagazine.org/downloads/02:38
aaron_KBentley57: two devices: "Internal Audio/Analog Stereo Duplex" and "Internal Audio/Digitao Stereo (HDMI) Output"02:38
xpr3ssthank you CFHowlett, @KBentley57 any preferably beginning with most simple or basic and then working my way up to more difficult programming02:38
KBentley57aaron_, about the output tab02:39
KBentley57xpr3ss, many people say python is easier to learn than c or c++.02:39
aaron_KBentley57: in the output tab, two devices: "Internal Audio Digital Stereo (HDMI) and Internal Audio Anaalog Stereo"02:40
xpr3ssKBentley57 man, im in school right now and i honestly hate c++02:40
KBentley57aaron_, select internal audio analog stereo, and for the connector, what options are available02:40
xpr3ssi figure it'd be easier to learn myself than keep dishing out a couple grand each semester02:40
KBentley57xpr3ss, i agree, ive taught myself almost all the coding i know02:41
KI7MTxpr3ss, I'd start with python as it's use extensively in Ubuntu or C/C++ they can and are used everywhere Linux.02:41
KBentley57xpr3ss, have you tried the Sams books?02:41
aaron_KBentley57: after selecting internal audio analog stereo in the output tab, the only settings i see are "Balance: left to right"02:41
dlentzaaron_, you might need something like this in /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf:  options snd-hda-intel model=ideapad02:42
h4ckm3c++ is awesome dude02:42
h4ckm3so many powers02:42
KBentley57xpr3ss, ISBN 0-672-32711-2, i just recommended that book to one of my students, they're great intro books02:42
xpr3ssKBentley57 have not tried sams books02:42
KBentley57aaron_, you don't have a connector pull down menu?02:42
xpr3ssokay great thanks02:42
KBentley57xpr3ss, its c++ of course, but there are many in that series02:43
hylianKBentley57, sorry I cut you off mid sentence02:43
KBentley57hylian, its cool, i know we all have to leave at some point02:43
aaron_KBentley57: i don't believe i do unless i need to move to a different tab.  Under "settings for the selected device" the only setting is for balance02:43
aaron_KBentley57: should i have my headphones plugged in already?02:43
xpr3ssokay, appreciate it, how bout programs to run code in??02:44
hylianKBentley57, yeah, had to log out.02:44
aaron_dlentz: so i tried that, but do i need to reboot before any changes take effect?02:44
GrymmoireI try to use wubi to get my computer to be able to boot Ubuntu from the CD (since it will not do it already like most computers) and I get this02:44

dlentzyou need to reload alsa: sudo alsa force-reload02:44
KBentley57xpr3ss, all you *require* is already installed - gcc.  If you want an IDE, I like netbeans02:44
KBentley57you can code in notepad if you want02:44
KBentley57aaron_, i don't think it should matter02:45
hylianKBentley57, if your not too busy, this is what my desktop looks like: http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-YDn4455GJBU/T2DdIMhW-dI/AAAAAAAAASg/8gAWNqfeRjI/s320/obmenu.png02:45

GrymmoireAnyone know how I can get Ubuntu to load off the CD?02:45
apporcHello everyone. I got one problem\02:45
xpr3ssoh okay, im still adjusting to ubuntu, so used window and visual basic.02:45
xpr3ssGrymmoire Boot option02:45
aaron_KBentley57: ya, is there something else i can give you to help me?02:45
=== Faryshta_ is now known as Faryshta
xpr3ssusually f12 on most laptops n desktops02:46
Grymmoirexpr3ss: I already tried the boot menu earlier, I don't have the option to boot from CD at all02:46
hylianKBentley57, sent you the wrong one, that was the thumb nail... http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-YDn4455GJBU/T2DdIMhW-dI/AAAAAAAAASg/8gAWNqfeRjI/s1600/obmenu.png02:46
xpr3ssnext best option is booting from USB02:46
GrymmoireI do have a USB option but I don't have any free USB sticks lying around, just my luck02:46
KBentley57xpr3ss, if you open synaptic, search for netbeans, you can select to install it.  give it a try02:46
KBentley57hylian, i thought it was tiny..lol02:46
xpr3ssokay thanks KBentley5702:46
gdea73I need help configuring X for my hybrid graphics laptop, A8-3420M with Radeon HD 6550M...02:47
KBentley57aaron_, can you pastebin the output of "sudo lshw"?02:47
GrymmoireGuess I'll put off installing ubuntu till I can get my hands on a USB stick then02:47
gdea73I tried the standard "amdconfig --initial," but I boot to tty1 and get no DE02:47
KBentley57aaron_, you may have to install lshw first - it lists all hardware in your system02:47
apporcHello everyone. I got one problem. with vmstat i saw that the cpu is busy "cs" ,and there are many "running procs" than the number of cpu core. so maybe the cpu is busying swiching between process and just do nothing. Now everything is two slow.02:47
gdea73i.e. tty7 just shows system messages in low res.02:47
apporcanyone can help?02:47
KBentley57aaron_, while your at it, can you post the output of lsmod?02:47
gdea73I tried amdconfig --adapter 0,1 --initial but I get the same result02:47
gdea73* but thec omputer boots ITSELF to tty102:47
KBentley57hylian, that's a nice looking desktop02:48
gdea73so has anyone successfully set up FGLRX on an APU with hybrid graphics??02:48
KBentley57hylian, what dock are you using02:48
hylianKBentley57, tint202:49
aaron_KBentley57: ok here it is: lshw - http://pastebin.com/sZSFJL39 ; lsmod - http://pastebin.com/a45TZ3Gx02:49
KBentley57gdea73, does that command do the same thing as aticonfig --adapter=all --initial?02:49
gdea73I'm not sure, I will try that next02:49
xpr3ssKBentley 57, how about learning commands and stuff for the terminal?02:49
KBentley57gdea73, i use the amd drivers all the time, i'm not sure about the comma02:49
gdea73thanks, rebooting it now02:50
aaron_KBentley57: if it means anything, when i plug my headphones in, the speakers do get a little softer, and the music comes out my headphones, but the speakers still emit sound02:50
gdea73comma?02:50
gdea73oh02:50
KBentley57but im sure its fine it if takes the comman02:50
gdea73well it was the only result I found for amdconfig APU02:50
KBentley57xpr3ss, there is an ebook i had for that, that was nice.  let me see if i can find it again. one sec02:50
hylianxpr3ss, just out of curiosity, what commands do you need or want to know?02:50
gdea73except remember this isn't a black screen error, the laptop just doesn't use any graphics acceleration at all. The desktop doesn't show up. It boots to TTY1.02:50
dlentzaaron_, any luck after reloading alsa?02:51
KBentley57aaron_, im wondering if you have line-in or something like that on02:51
aaron_dlentz: no luck :X02:51
gdea73alright KBentley57, I'm rebooting it now, let's see if the login screen shows up this time02:51
KBentley57gdea73, did you install the catalyst drives from the software center?02:51
KBentley57gdea73, hold up02:51
KBentley57gdea73, or did you get them from the website?02:51
gdea73KBentley57, I installed them manually via the guide at wiki.cchtml.com for Maverick.02:52
gdea73and BTW it booted to tty1 again, no desktop.02:52
KBentley57gdea73, you know you have to recompile/install them after every kernel update right?02:52
hylianKBentley57, aaron_'s problem sounds like the auto mute isn't functioning...02:52
aaron_KBentley57: i googled line-in but didn't understand what that is.  i don't believe i've installed any pacakges that were intended to mess with the soundcard02:52
KBentley57gdea73, unless, that is, you set up dkms02:52
KBentley57aaron_, line-in is sort of like a pass through, meaning you could for instance have a mic in, and pass that sound out of the speakers, if that makes sense02:53
gdea73Well, every real kernel update, right?02:53
gdea73And I didn't think Maverick was going anywhere after 2.6.35-xx02:53
dlentzaaron_, the term you're looking for is "jack sensing" and it's usually fixes by adding a  model=<something? or upgrading alsa02:53
mylisto23has anyone ever had a problem with supergrub not booting?02:53
KBentley57gdea73, true, but i always uninstall the old drivers first02:53
gdea73I've got 2.6.35-32 right now, and my manually-installed WiFi (RT3090) module carried over from -22, so I hope FGLRX would.02:53
KBentley57try to uninstall the old drivers, boot to tty, install the new drivers and what not02:54
xpr3sshylian i would like to learn as much as possible, nothing specific02:54
gdea73well that sounds like kind of a pain. It's worked on my desktop across multiple kernel upgrades, I just haven't updated Catalyst itself, but 3D accel etc still work alright02:54
aaron_dlentz: ah, that did bring many threads up.  i'm looking through them now02:54
gdea73so anyway amdconfig --adapter=all --initial didn't work. What else should I try? In this case I have a quad-core APU coupled with a Radeon HD 6650M, so I'd hope to be able to use switchable/hybrid graphics.02:55
KBentley57aaron_, i don't see anything that stands out in the pastebin stuff,02:55
gdea73I have the laptop connected to AC power at the moment.02:55
xpr3sshylian, i would like to learn as much as possible, not looking for specifics02:55
KBentley57gdea73, can you grab the amd drivers from the website? the 12.2 ones that were just released a few days ago?02:55
aaron_dlentz: KBentley57 oo ok, so i found a thread on google that said i should try installing inux-backports-modules-alsa-lucid-generic package and reboot my computer.02:55
gdea73... I suppose I could, if there's nothing else to do as far as AMDCONFIG is concerned.02:56
aaron_dlentz: KBentley57 i will try this and come back.  thanks a bunch for your help!02:56
gdea73It just took me... a while ... to get fglrx installed right manually. And I thought AMD's website always offered Catalyst 8, or something in compatible02:56
dlentzaaron_, yes that sounds reasonable (and easily undoable)02:56
gdea73(just like their Win98 drivers for the Rage 128 Pro which don't actually work XD)02:56
gdea73(but that's unrelated., that was a different PC altogether)02:56
Quantum_Iongdea73, Did you install it on a laptop or desktop with ubuntu linux02:56
xpr3ssKBentley57 any luck??02:57
gdea73Quantum_Ion, I'm running it on a laptop, a Lenovo IdeaPad Z575, with an AMD A6-3420M APU and AMD Radeon HD 6650M discrete graphics.02:57
gdea73And 6GB of DDR3 :D02:57
Quantum_Iongdea73, Have you noticed if Ubuntu runs hot on your laptop ?02:57
=== o0o0o is now known as silverfrequent
hylianxpr3ss, i like this website, because it is a nice paced linux console commands walkthrough... http://linuxcommand.org/02:58
KBentley57xpr3ss, still looking02:58
KBentley57actually that may have been what hylian posted02:58
xpr3ssokay great thanks02:58
KBentley57gdea73 are you running 64 or 32 bit02:59
gdea73Quantum_Ion, I haven't noticed excessive heat, but I've noticed comparably terrible battery performance. It's "estimated" at 2:20 after a full charge and that's about accurate, though it's supposed to last 4.5. It's 64 bit 10.10.02:59
gdea73KBentley57, it's 64 bit.02:59
Quantum_Iongdea73, Install xsensors and tell me what your temperatures are sudo apt-get install xsensors03:00
gdea73I had xsensors installed already before I lost access to the DE.03:00
hyliangdea73, so i am assuming you used ubuntu's hardware driver utility, and it had nothing for you there, or ???03:00
gdea73now when I boot I get kicked to tty1 right away; tty7 shows the status menus03:00
Dulakgdea73: My battery capacity went up when I moved from lucid to precise,  They have apparently fixed whatever regression in the kernel was causing the power issues.03:00
gdea73hylian, I ran the Additional Drivers utility, and it did show FGLRX, and it probably would've worked, but I wanted to run Catalysts 12.2 because I figured it'd have better support for the APU.03:01
KBentley57gdea73 http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/linux/Pages/radeon_linux.aspx03:01
gdea73Dulak, thanks, though I'm running Maverick on Kernel 2.6.35-32-generic, and I already tried the acpi=force option for extended battery life mentioned across the web.03:01
gdea73KBentley57, alright opening link, just a second :P03:01
Quantum_IonDulak, That's what I heard that next LTS version of Ubuntu will have more power saving mode for laptops03:01
gdea73ah, so should I really use AMD's regular installer from the site?03:01
KBentley57dgea73 that will take a second to dl, lets get the old drivers out while we're waiting03:01
hyliangdea73, ahh, I see. are you sure the fglrx installed properly? it's been quite a while since i used ati hardware on a linux box.03:01
KBentley57gdea73, yes03:02
Quantum_IonI had to purge fglrx completely from my system03:02
gdea73hylian, well it took me a couple hours of trial and error, but I thought so. It compiled correctly and I finally got amdconfig recognized as a command. I could successfully run amdconfig --initial, but it wouldn't load Gnome after that.03:02
KBentley57gdea73, let me rephrase that - I have used amd's drivers on my system for years and they work fine03:02
Dulakgdea73: There is a regression somewhere in 2.6.x that causes it to eat more power than it should, the acpi=force thing doesn't fix that, it fixes another issue with acpi not working correctly so none of the power saving works.03:02
KBentley57gdea73, do you have access to the box now?03:03
Quantum_IonRight now I am running Ubuntu Lucid 10.04 LTS with powersaver and a script to keep my laptop cool03:03
gdea73KBentley57, alright I guess I will. I just have had problems in the past using their auto-installer, wiki.cchtml.com's Maverick guide was far more successful for my desktop. But this is my laptop, and there's nothing else I can do, so I will try those drivers in just a minute.03:03
hyliangdea73, what happens when you initiate startx yourself?03:03
DulakQuantum_Ion: I went from 4 hours to almost 5.5 hours just upgrading from 10.04 to 12.0403:03
gdea73I do have access to the laptop. I'm just simultaneously doing work on my old laptop. And typing on my desktop ;)03:03

gdea73hylian, I tried the command and I got a bunch of errors, followed by error 11 - segfault.03:04
Quantum_IonBefore my laptop was running hot and the fans were on full blast03:04
gdea73"Signal 11 (segmentation fault)"03:05

KBentley57gdea73 navigate to /usr/share/ati and tell me if you see fglrx-uninstall.sh03:05
gdea73Quantum_Ion: I'll get you info on the temps when I get X working again.03:05
hyliangdea73, hmm, is there any way you could dump that to a pastebin? it might be nothing, but maybe we could see somethging there..??03:05

gdea73okay umm... /usr/share/ati, just a second03:06
Dulakzod21: Yeah, it's good though, it means linux has a chance at the desktop finally, because windows 8 sucks on a desktop03:06
gdea73KBentley57, shoot, all I see is one file, amdcccle.03:06
hyliangdea73, i would think you it would be easier to run something like links, and then perhaps go to google from there. i'm gonna try it, i live in the cli anyways.03:07
Quantum_IonNo need to really run Windows anymore I have been using Ubuntu for a while now03:07
KBentley57gdea73, ok try to run "locate fglrx" and tell me what you see03:07
gdea73hylian, I would, except the wireless driver doesn't appear to be working when I'm in TTY1. Which is strange. And a pain. it took me all day to get WiFi working :03:08
gdea73:P03:08
gdea73KBentley57, I'll try.03:08
zod21dulak yeah thats the most awesome thing about it, i wasnt bitching i think that rules. linux is about to be a big hit. and technichal question @cfhowlett does anyone know if they are going to keep the Gnome3 interface even after what torvalds had to say about it on the next distro because i hate it. i went back to 10.04 because i thought it was better03:08
Quantum_IonI think April 12th 2012 is when Ubuntu LTS comes out03:09
gdea73a lot of lines came up, including stuff in /usr/share, and something with "modaliases" in it. Can't copy all of it ATM though.03:09

Dulakzod21: gnome 3 is here to stay, it just needs to mature,  with the new plugins many things are coming back to gnome 3 from gnome 203:10
suhey does anyone know how to change the address bar in thunar to an actual path? is there something like gconf-editor for it?03:10
gdea73Well I'm thinking what I should do now is apt-get remove --purge fglrx, and rm -rf /etc/X11/xorg.conf, and sudo apt-get install (vesa drivers?)03:10
DJsu you need to install gnome-tweak-tools03:10
KBentley57gdea73 bingo03:10
gdea73Dulak: Do you know if AllTray was ever updated to work with anything other than </= 10.10?03:10
DJso you can tweak your Bar and Much more in Gnome su03:11
Dulakgdea73: I don't know what AllTray is so no03:11
RadiobuzzI'm trying to boot from an ISO file, which is located on (hd0,7), however grub2 can't find the file and when I look at other grub entries I see that instead of using hd0,x, it uses (for every entry, OpenSuSE and Windows) hd0,msdosX03:11
suDJ: isn't thunar xfce though? I just installed the xfce desktop and am in it03:11
kalimojogdea73 i had the same problem with ralink03:11
gdea73KBentley57, alright I guess I'll do that, and then just use ATI's downloadable drivers. However, what was the package I was to install, for the vesa drivers. I removed them before. That's why I'm stuck at a terminal.03:11
RadiobuzzI tried replacing hd0,7 with hd0,msdos7 with no luck03:11
gdea73kalimojo, yeah I tried to write a quick and dirty tutorial on my thread, see Lenovo IdeaPad Z575 WiFI ;)03:11
KBentley57gdea73, did you download the drivers at the link i gave?03:11
gdea73Dulak, it was a utility that allowd you to pin stuff to the system tray03:11
zod21@Dulak yeah i hope, i just like the old school stuff, my favorite distro is still 7.10 it ran on my system like a charm03:12
KBentley57gdea73, you don't need to be in x to install the drivers03:12
gdea73I don't?03:12
KBentley57gdea73 not at all03:12
zod21whats the command in here for @ someone, i forgot because i am a retard03:12
gdea73Well I need WiFi to download them, and I'd rather not do the USB stick deal right now...03:12
KatsumeBliskTab zod2103:12
KBentley57gdea73, when you get them downloaded, all you need to do is cd to Downloads03:12
KatsumeBliskzod21: Just start typing their name and hit Tab03:12
Quantum_Iongdea73, Next laptop I purchase will be a Lenovo or a Toshiba right now I am using a Gateway/Acer laptop they kind of suck03:12
gdea73KatsumeBlisk: oh my god that's how you do that?!?! I always wondered how to do that in IRC!!03:12
KBentley57gdea73 then run "sudo ./amd-blah-blah.run03:12
Radiobuzzso to make the question simpler: why does my grub entries use hd0,msdosX instead of hd0,X?03:13
gdea73Quantum_Ion: haha yeah, I've heard, bad things about Gateway laptops.03:13
zod21katsumeblisk03:13
gdea73The school where I live purchased a couple billion dollar deal with gateway right before they filed bankruptcy... lol03:13
KBentley57gde33, lol, it took me a long time to figure the tab thing out too03:13
Quantum_Iongdea73, yeah never buy one because Gateway is Acer now03:13
Dulakzod21: another 6 months to a year and most everything you had on gnome 2 should be working under gnome 3 with the plugin system,  though I'm sure there will be plenty of programs that don't get ported, functionality has a habit of getting reimplemented in this type of situation.  It just takes time.03:13
KatsumeBliskzod21: Maybe I didn't understand your question. :P03:13
gdea73Quantum_Ion: I kind of forgot that, yeah thanks. I always had more respect for Acer as a brand, lol. Though I loved old Gateway desktops. I have what I call the "SuperGateway," a blend of P3 and P2 era computing, all Gateway branded components & peripherals, including a Gaetway CRT! :D03:14
DulakQuantum_Ion: that's funny because I only buy acer laptops, and have always had a good experience with them.03:14
hyliangdea73, another option would be to use the live cd. you use backspace as it is loading until you get a cli menu. then you can choose safe menu. you should then be able to find a menu option for booting with the default (but crappy) gui driver. this would atleast get you back out of cli land... but then you would have to remove that driver, and either try to re-install it or choose one from the ubuntu driver repositories...03:14
zod21@dulak freakin awesome. i love ubuntu, i can do anything, and i just put backtrack on a flash drive and i now can really do whatever lol, it is awesome03:14
miguel_if i want to use wget to get all files from a website that start with the name miguel how can i do it???03:14
Quantum_Iongdea73, I installed Ubuntu Linux 10.04 LTS on a friends old Toshiba laptop made in 2005 and his laptop runs 10 times faster then it ran with Windows pretty strange huh03:14
gdea73Quantum_Ion: well, if I get fglrx to work sometime I'll let you know, you should consider the Z575 for an upgrade; it seems to be a really nice laptop. Just it came with Win7 which is... just not acceptable for me ;P03:15
zod21@dulak, how many distros have you been through03:15
Quantum_IonDulak, People always tell me the best laptops for Linux are Lenovo03:15
gdea73Quantum_Ion: Not strange at all, Ubuntu is so far better optimized, at least on the right hardwrae :)03:15
DulakQuantum_Ion: not to be a jerk but 10.04 was released in 201003:15
KatsumeBliskDulak: He probably means that the laptop is 7 years old, not the distro03:15
Quantum_IonDulak, I know I only due the LTS releases03:15
stephan_can anyone tell me about linux from scratch ?03:15
gdea73hylian: that seems like it would work except I'd prefer to use the wireless. Which I can't unelss I'm in X on my native install. I think. Though I don't see why the module rt3090sta wouldn't load in tty1. Maybe I'll try again.03:15
Dulakzod21: I started using linux it 1995, and have worked with just about every distro that has any sort of popularity, because I was a syseng at a server hosting company.03:16
zod21@dulak and do you ever mess with kde, i ran it a while back and i despised it. it was annoying and slower03:16
gdea73So can anyone confirm (or just say they would for my sanity's sake) that the A8 + 6650M will work alright with fglrx, and some 3D acceleration? :S03:16
KatsumeBliskzod21: I'm using KDE right now.03:16
gdea73(and then I'll go reinstall the vesa graphics and install from ATI's site the autoinstaller)03:16
hyliangdea73, that's iffy. My wireless works right off the live cd, but this is a pretty simple little netbook I have here.03:16
Quantum_IonDulak, laptop was made in 2005 it had Windows XP on it and when I installed Ubuntu Linux 10.04 the laptop was very fast03:16
KatsumeBliskzod21: Getting used to it. Decided to try it out03:16
Dulakzod21: I never really cared for kde,  I have messed with it but not that much, I always end up back on gnome or xfce03:16
Quantum_IonDulak, KDE is the darkhorse for some reason03:17
Radiobuzzso, noone can help me? :303:17
gdea73hylian: well that's ... lucky. as I explained, it took me a long time to get the RT3090 working. A loong time. And now I have to do the work I put off! :P03:17
DulakQuantum_Ion: Yeah I just misunderstood what you said, thought you were saying you installed 10.04 in 2005.03:17
zod21@dulak much respect bro that rules, ive only used mint, dsl and ubuntu03:17
Quantum_IonDulak, np03:17
gdea73I'll be on... tomorrow afternoon I suppose, and I can finish this battle with fglrx03:17
KBentley57Radiobuzz, what is your question03:17
hyliangdea73, sorry... that sucks. using ndis wrapper?03:17
Redjack1964someone can tell me how can i add a include search path in environment variables?03:17
gdea73I really hope I can run Minecraft on this thing, reasonably well. As that and YouTube-ing are the only things I miss with my current laptop.03:18
miguel_if i want to use wget to get all files from a website that start with the name miguel how can i do it???03:18
Quantum_IonI don't have time to mess around with every new release of Ubuntu that's why I just upgrade when the LTS releases come out03:18
DulakRedjack1964: you want to add a path that is searched when you try to execute commands?03:18
KBentley57miguel_, man wget03:18
zod21@katsumeblisk yeah, i had it for a few months, liked it at first kindof mainly because of the change but i got annoyed by it after a while and whent back to gnome. i just like the interface a ton more03:18
miguel_KBentley57: i can't find it there03:18
KatsumeBliskQuantum_Ion: I thought about that, but I really like the latest software.03:18
Redjack1964Dulak: not a command, but a include/ repertory.03:18
RadiobuzzKBentley57: trying to make grub2 boot from an iso file which is located in hd0,7 but grub can't find it; when I read the grub config file I realise every entry uses hd0,msdosX instead of hd0,X03:18
hyliangdea73, minecraft runs beautiful, just do not use icedtea6 plugin or open jdk. make sure it is from sun/oracle or it won't work at all.03:18
gdea73hylian: I don't remember. Probably. I had to compile the module and blacklist a bunch for it to work. I was real excited when it did though.03:19
DulakQuantum_Ion: I do exactly the same thing, I just upgraded from 10.04 to 12.04 to beat the server issues that happen whenever an LTS is released.03:19
KatsumeBliskzod21: I'm deciding between KDE, Cinnamon, and Xfce. Just installed this, so I'm going to wait. Can't pass judgment on a DE in only a few days.03:19
Quantum_IonJust like I upgrade Oracle Java when full versions come out like Java 7 I will wait for Java 8 and so on03:19
gdea73sorry that was from earlier. Well I meant I'd hope Minecraft would run well on my A8 + 6550M, not just Ubuntu in general. I've used Ubuntu before with Minecraft and it's great, both on my server and workstation :)03:19
KBentley57Radiobuzz, i just tried to do that a few days ago actually.  how risky are you feeling?03:19
gdea73(but those have discrete graphics only, no hybrid/APU chipset deal)03:19
Radiobuzzvery :)03:19
KBentley57miguel_, give me a moment and ill try to look something up03:19
DulakRedjack1964: I am not sure what you need there, what exactly are you wanting to do?03:19
gdea73alright I have some time for troubleshooting now, but not much. I've got to get up early to finish what I was working on, besides the laptop :(03:19
KBentley57Radiobuzz, can you make a new blank partition?03:20
Radiobuzzwait, I'll PM you03:20
Quantum_IonIn my younger days I had a lot of time to install new versions of Ubuntu when a new version came out but not anymore sometimes installing software and tweaking it can take up too much of my time03:20
* hylian loves openbox with tint2, faster than greased ligntinin'03:20
gdea73earlier today I was considering a reformat, but now that WiFi works, that's beyond my reach and willpower :D03:20
gdea73Quantum_Ion: I know how you feel, I'm running out of time to do anything these days :P03:20
gdea73I keep wanting to get around to installing Arch on my Asus Terminator C3, but I never have the time...03:21
KBentley57Quantum_Ion, tell me about it, reinstalling up to 10 programs i use and have configured could take a full day03:21
gdea73and plus since it doesn't have the (cx8 cmov) instruction, things are difficult when an i686 is required :D03:21
KBentley57Quantum_Ion, if there were no hiccups03:21
gdea73alright I'm going to remove fglrx or the remainder of it, and install the opensource radeon drivers.03:21
hyliangdea73, my suggestion would be to remove the driver you where using altogether. once you have done that, we should hopefully be able to walk you through the cli to get a known functioning driver installed.03:22
Quantum_Iongdea73, goodluck03:22
KBentley57gdea73, i would go with the closed source drivers, if it were me03:22
KBentley57gdea73, gl though@03:22
gdea73@all three of you: thanks for the good luck wishes ;) . And I am ultimately going to use the closed source drivers, I'm just reinstalling vesa to get to my desktop, to get to the AMD website :D03:23
gdea73though I know I have like 5 other PCs I could use, I'm too... well it's a weird type of laziness. I don't mind the software work, I just don't want to have to find my USB drive or replug the network cable from the C3 into the laptop and rewire stuff :P03:23
Dulakgdea73: They offer ubuntu debs on that site?03:23
Quantum_IonSarah, Hi03:24
R3db3ardgdea73, you only have to do it once.03:24

gdea73L3top: that'd be great, well I'm working on them atm but if I need further help it'd be greatly appreciated.03:28
gdea73woo, back to the desktop! ... with the crappy open source drivers :P03:29
gdea73alright so, KBentley57: now I go to AMD's site?03:29
L3topYou will have to completely purge the fglrx drivers in order to use the radeon03:29
L3topcan you give me the output of lspci | grep "VGA"03:29
gdea73L3top:  I have done so. (If you're talking to me.) I'm going to reinstall them now, using the link that KBentley57 provided :)03:29
gdea73... though, I can.03:29
KBentley57gdea73 yes, grab those drivers03:29
gdea73there are two listings:03:30
gdea73(1) 00:01.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc Device 964703:30
L3topI just wanted to make sure your chipset is supported first... I am just catching up gdea7303:30
gdea73and (2) 01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc Device 674103:30
L3topcan you give me the output of lspci -v | grep "VGA"03:30
gdea73L3top: well that's the thing, it's the new A8 APU so I really hope it's supported.03:30
KBentley57gdea73 i know, those are the ones you need03:30
gdea73L3top: with quotes? Alright, I will.03:30
L3topthats correct then03:30
gdea73exact same output.03:31
L3topKBentley57 is correct03:31
gdea73alright, 'ill go back and find that link03:31
gdea73*I'll03:31
L3top-v was the addition03:31

dj_segfaultHow can /var/log/messages not exist?  Did they change the name of the logfiles?03:35
KBentley57auto03:35
gdea73I suppose Auto couldn't hurt, but do you have an opinion? alright thanks.03:35
KBentley57auto has always worked better for me03:35

Dulakdj_segfault: except it is there in precise, hmmmm03:37
gdea73woot! It worked, so far.03:37
Dulakendra: what distro are you running?03:37
gdea73wait, before I reboot, do I run amdconfig manually? or just reboot?03:37
endraDulak: latest ubuntu-server03:37
endradj_segfault: not a problem, I really appreciate your help :-)03:37
gdea73okay i'll just let it reboot03:38
KBentley57gdea73, sudo aticonfig --adapter=all --initial03:38
KBentley57before or after, doesn't really matter03:38
Dulakendra: /var/log/kern is also good, if it was a kernel issue you should get some info there03:38
dr-willisits now called amdconfig isent it?03:38
KBentley57it's still aticonfig in the latest driver03:38
researcher123I have an aptonCD.iso of my  earlier installed applications.Now I want to restore but cant load the image.Any help?03:39
dr-willisthey renamed some of their other tools. i noticed the other day. i rarely use ati03:39
=== webnet is now known as orionsonofneptun
gdea73KBentley57:  well I rebooted and it appears to work, which is sweet, full 1366x768, but I'll run the command now.03:39
dr-willisresearcher123:  mount the iso perhaps03:40
=== orionsonofneptun is now known as webnet
gdea73alright I did, and I"m rebooting :)03:40
dr-willis!iso03:40
ubottuTo mount an ISO disc image, type « sudo mount -o loop <ISO-filename> <mountpoint> » - There is a list of useful cd image conversion tools at http://wiki.linuxquestions.org/wiki/CD_Image_Conversion - Always verify the ISO using !MD5 before !burning.03:40
DulakWhat aspect is 1366x768, 16:9?03:40
gdea73Dulak: correct.03:40
Dulakgdea73: you lucky bastid03:40
endraThis seems to be why it went offline: http://pastebin.com/XqSQGqS903:40
gdea73BTW, sometimes when I close the lid (suspend), the laptop never wakes up. It does on a hardware level but the screen stays off. I have to take out the battery (!!) to get it to POST again. Hardware or software problem? I see nothing about resuming in any system log.03:41
gdea73Dulak: lol03:41
gdea73KBentley57: oh noes! I'm stuck at "checking batttery state," i.e. TTY7 has no interface now.03:41
gdea73stuck at the ugly splash, as it were03:41
KBentley57gdea73 do the config and reboot03:42
gdea73okay now my backspace key is doing nothing, and my right arrow is acting like a spacebar03:42
Dulakgdea73: suspend has always been a bit buggy, I stopped trying and moved to hibernate instead.  It's a bit slower, but not as buggy.03:42
K350is there ayone who knows how to setup mutt with mixmaster?03:42
KBentley57gdea, oh wait, it was fine, you configged, and now its broke?03:42
gdea73KBentley57: good call on hibernate. but also, this is AFTER configuring it like that. I'm going to try just --initial.03:42
gdea73yeah it worked before :S03:42
K350There's NOT a single line on google on how to setup mutt wiht mixmastr. Not a line , nothing03:42
Dulakendra: well that looks like either an attempt to exploit your server, or bad ram.03:43
KBentley57gdea73 delete the xorg.config and reboot - its in /etc/x1103:43
gdea73oh, okay.03:43
Dulakendra: you might want to run memtest86+ on that box and see if it shows any errors03:43
gdea73Doing so now.03:43
gdea73I'm afraid it will default to VESA since I didn't --purge it this time :X03:43
Dulakendra: it's an actual machine or a vps?03:43
Linux7to view all the logs on the Internet navigation?03:44
endraDulak: actual machine.03:44
gdea73yup, back and running, but in crap-resolution, 1024x768, on a 16:9 TFT :(03:44
gdea73Now Catalyst won't launch, clearly fglrx is no longer running. Should I run the amdconfig --initial command?03:44
hyliangdea73, i wish I had that resolution. I am forever stuck in 1024x600, (netbook).03:44
Dulakendra: yeah run memtest86+ on it and see if it gives errors.  If you get errors you can take the addresses from the error and pass them to the kernel at boot to avoid any bad spots.03:45
gdea73hylian: haha, bummer. I liked the old 4:3 resolutions like 1024x768, etc, as long as the screen fits it.03:45
gdea73ah, "uninitialised file found, configuring." Gotcha.03:45
st1is there a way to make TOP show memory usage minus cache/buffer?03:46
gdea73So on a side note, why does my battery life just... suck?03:46
hylianwell thats all for me everyone. I am very tired, goodnight03:46
KBentley57later hylian03:46
Dulakgdea73: I am very jealous of your 16:9 laptop screen.03:46
gdea73it lasts 2:30, tops. The laptop as rated for 4:30. It's brand new with its OEM battery.03:46
KBentley57gdea73, open catalyst control center03:46

gdea73KBentley57: is that like, HDTV res? My desktop and server run 1080p.03:47
KBentley57gdea73 what did you do to fix it?03:47
gdea73ah sweet, catalyst is running. I installed the drivers you provided and ran amdconfig --initial :)03:47
gdea73the --adapter=all screwed it up03:47
Linux7to view all the logs on the Internet navigation?03:47
gdea73it's not a true crossfire setup, it's "hybrid" 1, vs. the other.03:47
Dulakendra: It also has the same charecteristic of someone trying to exploit the kernel, so if you get no errors, best start looking very hard at your system.03:47
gdea73so here's the deal now, it's running on the discrete card, which is nice but I'd like that to be toggle-able.03:47
gdea73oh sick "Switchable Graphics" tab! XD03:48
KBentley57gdea73, it came out before the flat panel craze.  it's just a little bit taller with the same width03:48
gdea73KBentley57: that sounds awesome.03:48
KBentley57gde33, does it switch? Fingers crossed03:48
gdea73Gosh darn it AMD! "You must reboot to apply the changes"03:48
gdea73so I have to reboot to play a game that runs natively on Linux? haha what a joke.03:48
KBentley57reboot and see if it at least works03:48
KBentley57lol03:48
Linux7to view all the logs on the Internet navigation?03:48
KBentley57and what is this game that runs natively on linux you speak of?03:49
gdea73I might as well have an XP partiton. Though I'm kidding. Going with the "bold strategy" of Ubuntu alone on a brand new laptop. And using 10.10, and *not* upgrading :D03:49
gdea73KBentley57:  It's rebooting and I think it's workign.03:49
Dulakgdea73: That is a gamer laptop, you will never get good battery out of it, because it's aimed at performance, not power saving.03:49
gdea73*working.03:49
dr-willisif your switchable works.. id say count your blessings. :)03:49
Braden`Hello03:49
gdea73Dulak: but it doesn't *look* as lame as a "gaming laptop"! haha. It's a Lenovo.03:49
triscuitI'd like to delete my windows partition, but gw203:49
KatsumeBliskgdea73: That distro will last you all of a month. It's not getting security updates after next month.03:49
KBentley57you might like the mate desktop03:50
gdea73KatsumeBlisk: ah god03:50
gdea73it took me about that long to CONFIGURE everything lol03:50
KBentley57lol03:50
Dulakgdea73: Yes but the cpu and graphics are typical gamer laptop parts, so your battery will never be good.03:50
gdea73oh man, purpoe screen... (?)03:50
KBentley57give it a sec03:50
Braden`I installed the postfix package, and I have "inet_interfaces = all" in my /etc/postfix/main.cf file; however, netstat -anp shows "tcp        0      0 127.0.0.1:25            0.0.0.0:*               LISTEN      18428/sendmail: MTA".  How do I make it listen to 0.0.0.0?03:50
KatsumeBliskgdea73: 10.10 will be depracated next month since it'll have been 18 months after release, the lifetime of a non-LTS release.03:50
gdea73Dulak: meh, okay. I don't emphasize portability a lot. I just expected its rating of 4.5 hours to be semi-true, which it is. 2.75?03:50
Fyodorovnatriscuit, you have another os like ubuntu installed from windows there as well?03:50
gdea73KatsumeBlisk: oh, that's... too bad. It's my favorite release.03:50
Dulakgdea73: Be lucky, I bought an amd gamer laptop that was super cheap for my dad for xmas, and his battery lasts 1 hr 15 minutes.03:51

KatsumeBliskgdea73: I agree. It's mine as well. You'll either have to downgrade to 10.04 (for a year) or change DEs if you don't want Unity.03:51
gdea73though Dulak, i think it's just b/c it's running on the discrete card, draining the power.03:51
gdea73KatsumeBlisk: ah, well, I might just keep it unsupported even though people will laugh at me. And hate me. haha.03:52

KatsumeBliskKBentley57: It's not my favorite, but it's not bad. I don't like it enough to use it though. You can have your own opinion. :)03:52
KatsumeBliskgeek_:  I think it's fine.03:52
KBentley57geek_, most of the ubuntu's are fairly similar03:53
KBentley57geek_, if you want something that is more windows like, try kubuntu03:53
geek_k thanks wasn't sure03:53
Braden`I installed the postfix package, and I have "inet_interfaces = all" in my /etc/postfix/main.cf file; however, netstat -anp shows "tcp        0      0 127.0.0.1:25            0.0.0.0:*               LISTEN      18428/sendmail: MTA".  How do I make it listen to 0.0.0.0?03:53
gdea73KBentley57: I can see how people might like it. On a laptop perhaps. I just like DEs to be both "classic" looking and very customizable. I still use Windows 98 - just throwing that out there. *ducks*03:53
researcher123is it possible to identify duplicate files on system? Any search tool?03:53
DulakUnity just needs to mature, same as gnome 3.03:53
KatsumeBliskgdea73: You should check out Cinnamon. Not completely polished right now because it's new, but it's really good.03:53
gdea73KBentley57: crap still have the purple screen on the "onboard" graphics.03:53
KBentley57KatsumeBlisk, i usually install from the ground up, and only install the least of what i need03:53
gdea73KatsumeBlisk: heard of it, supposed to be cool. I'll try it sometime perhaps.03:53
KatsumeBliskDulak: Exactly. KDE4 had the same problems Unity and GNOME have03:53

DulakKatsumeBlisk: I like it on my netbook, but not my desktop.  I am still on gnome2 on my desktop, waiting for the maturity.03:54
KatsumeBliskKBentley57: It depends on what distro I'm using on how much work it takes. If it's prebuilt like Ubuntu, I'll use it. If it's like Arch, I'll set it up myself.03:55

DulakKatsumeBlisk: np03:55
KatsumeBliskbrightspark: Too a point. I'm not sure how many applets are available, but they're working on it.03:56
brightsparkKatsumeBlisk: thank you.  The lack of customisability is why I've been avoiding upgrading from Meerkat03:56
KatsumeBliskDulak: I like up-to-date software too much to run Debian stable or Ubuntu 10.04. :-/ I had to make a choice, GNOME 2 or the other software.03:56
KatsumeBliskbrightspark: Cinnamon is relatively young, so it may not be what you want out of it, but give it time. The Linux Mint guys want a GNOME 2-like DEe as well.03:57
DulakKatsumeBlisk: It just sucks so many things all decided to change at the same time, so the last 10 years of work making everything rock solid went out the window across the board.03:59

mylisto23dr-willis: doesn't super grub disk do the same thing?07:20
JatuAs I can't see a ubuntu update preventing you from watching stuff on youtube. Unless ofcourse something got deleted while replacing something else.07:20
dr-willismylisto23:  i suggest using the actual ubuntu disk and tools.. since you tried to fix it with supergrub and it failed...07:21
techquilaits not flash related I don't think.. its just not finding the site.  I used to watch youtube fine... i'm current on all flash,,etc... but use html5 anyways now07:21
JatuOh not finding the site like what does it tell you ?07:21
JatuWhen you try to access it07:21
techquilathats just it.. nothing.. its searches and searches and times out07:21

tpl2000What happened yesterday? o.o07:38
JatuThat was about to be my question. What changed from yesterday ?07:39
techquilai had a similar issue on an older machine that just couldn't handle unity07:39
k013tpl2000 - firefox malfunctioned, so i uninstalled and reinstalled it that's all, nothing else, but the issue was not fixed, contd07:39
techquilaso i switch to classic and sweet07:39
JatuWait you reinstalled the OS because firefox malfunctioned ?07:40
techquilasurely just firefox07:40
k013contd when is switch windows using alt+tab the firebox browser simply closed, that was the issue!07:40
k013reinstalled firefox jatu07:41
AdvoWorkfor some reason, my dvdrw has stopped working in ubuntu 10.04. No errors in /var/log/messages Any ideas what I can do please? It doesn't auto pop up when I put a dvd in, and when I right click > send to disc, it only gives the option to burn to image, not the disk :S dmesg | grep dvd shows its there..07:41
JatuAh kk just wanted to make sure lol.07:41
mylisto23argh07:41
tpl2000Advowork: Have you tried turning it off and on again?07:41
JatuUm you still got a live cd or usb stick ?07:41
techquilahahaha tpl07:41
mylisto23yeah I do07:41
techquilaIT Crowd?07:41
mylisto23I've got both07:41
tpl2000Techquila: Yep ;) Still the first question you should ask yourself in troubleshooting07:42
JatuTry booting from one of those and see if it works.07:42
techquilatpl2000, my favourite series of all time07:42
k013techquila - unable to login at all07:42
tpl2000techquila: Mine too =] Any clue when s5 is starting?07:42
JatuIf it works that way something on your drive could have corrupted the current settings or drivers is what I'm thinking though I could be totally wrong.07:42
k013jatu is there a safe mode which i can boot into?07:43
JatuSo I suggest checking if you can boot a liveOS from cd/usb and if screen still flashes I would suggest trying your other os and checking your drivers.07:43
techquilak013: you been using this install for a while i take it?07:43
AdvoWorktpl2000, yeah done that, no difference07:43
techquilatpl2000, I didn't think there was one coming07:43
k013techquila - yes since it was released07:44
JatuCause screen flashing more or less sounds like a driver issue if anything,07:44
tpl2000techquila: Doesn't seem to me like they would've stopped it at season 4, I'll check later07:44
mylisto23jatu: are you talking to me?07:44
Jatumylisto23 : yes I am07:44
tpl2000Advowork: Do you have a separate machine or OS you could test the drive with? We need to make sure it isn't the drive's fault07:44
JatuOh no07:44
mylisto23there is not screen flashing07:44
AdvoWorktpl2000, i haven't unfortunaetyely as its a laptop one :S07:45
JatuWait yes07:45
JatuSo many things being said lol07:45
JatuI almost got lost mylisto23 yes I am talking to you.07:45
techquilak013 i agree with Jatu.. unless hardware problem... firefox issue would not have caused this07:45
techquilayou may need to boot in with live cd and attempt recovery07:45
k013techquila - ok is there a safe mode, how do i login in?07:45
JatuAdvoWork : Try taking out your dvd drive reboot without it in. Then turn off and reinsert like that ?07:46
JatuLol07:46
tpl2000advowork: There are alternative methods for everything you listed as being a problem. Can you still burn to dvd with brasero, and does it still read disks?07:46
JatuI really did get mixed up in 2 conversations07:46
JatuGood I am to adhd.07:46
Jatumylisto23 : sorry what was your problem again07:47
JatuI see my mistake I was talking to 2 people at once and got way to lost.07:47
techquilaK013  whats your level of experience with ubuntu?  not trying to be a dick just will help me help you07:47
Aesthenautare there tons of problems with mounting ios devices on ubuntu?07:47
k013just a user not a code writer, techquila, sorry!07:48
Jatuk013 You don't need to be in safe mode just see if you can reboot from Cd/usb if screen still flashes sounds like a driver issue.07:48

JatuWell that answered my question lol.08:25
icerootJatu: sorry08:25
vanchabacktrack5 is not comparible to ubuntu, its more of a "hackers" distribution, and altough it tries to make hacking easier, its HARD :P08:25

Shabbacollege programming student here, just switched like 10 mins ago, so what programs are used for writing/compiling code?08:26
JatuWell I actually was wanting to get into network security again I learned a bit in windows but thougt it was worth a ask before I got it done.08:26
icerootShabba: what language?08:26

vanchaeclipse for java08:27
JatuJava is always fun. Was the first programming i got into lol. I wanna teach myself some php next.08:27
vanchavery good IDE :O i think its in the software center, but i downloaded it from the site.08:27
ejvyour teacher didn't tell you how to compile using the java sdk... questionable curriculum...08:27
vanchai love php Jatu :D im making a site in php right now ^^08:28
icerootShabba: i would suggest eclipse08:28

icerootShabba: netbeans is available for ubuntu too08:29
JatuI plan dual booting backtrack and ubuntu 10.04. I probably know the answer but is there a chance of them interfering with eachother since they are both linux based or nah ?08:29
icerootvancha: you can install eclipse directly from the repos08:29

reith2004try sublimetext it fast...08:29
dr-willisi like geany08:29

JatuIs it fine to dual-boot 2 linux distros ? Or is there a chance they will interfere with eachother ?08:30
ejvi'd argue that, early on, crutches are bad08:30
JatuJust making sure I don't do anything wrong so i ask alot of questions myself when needed.08:30
vanchahmm.. you could be right, im still learning java myself though :P started last year, and all i've used so far is eclipse. except for some editors that didnt really work out for me.08:31
henryCI don't know whether to ask in #nginx or here.  I used to always compile nginx from source.  I just upgraded to 11.10 and I just want to use nginx from the repo.  I end up with no binary.  "apt-get cache show nginx" talks about a "dummy package"...?08:32
JatuVancha : you mentioned backtrack messed up your system. If not mistaken. What ways so ?08:32
iceroothenryC: dummy-package is a metapackage which is just a package which has dependencies and will install other packages08:33
vanchai didnt Jatu :O had to be someone else. i did say it was hard :)08:33
JatuAh okay08:33
iceroothenryC: like ubuntu-desktop, that package does not contain unity and so on just a dependency to everything which is needed08:33
JatuThanks though ^^08:33

JatuBilegt did this problem start when you first came to using Ubuntu ?08:43
=== sun_ is now known as Guest56788
bilegtJatu: it was all right when it was fresh installed. I deleted ~/.config/chromium and it's working smoothly. But my data are gone :(08:43
Jatubilegt : Ah then yeah I have no clue what to tell you. I am also still learning and it seems out of my grasp. If I think of anything I will let you know.08:44
Birlibanhi, i have to copy some several big files (2~18GB) to another location on same disk. what would be the fastest way to do it (terminal-based)? progress indicator (percent) would be appreciated. or is maybe packing it faster than copying?08:44
bilegtJatu: maybe the problem is with the extensions I had installed08:45
Guest56788рш08:45
JatuBilegt : that actually sounds like a possiblity. Always check the extensions that are enabled or not enabled.08:45
Guest56788hi08:45
vanchaGuest56788: hi :)08:45
JatuBilegt: Make sure only stuff you need is enabled.08:45
dr-willisBirliban:  why do you need a copy? you could make a link. unless you are editig the file08:46
JatuBilegt : Then check if there is a noteable difference.08:46
bilegtJatu: Yeah08:46
Jordan_UBirliban: For a one time copy "cp" is as fast as anything. For a progress bar "rsync --progress /path/to/source /path/to/destination/". rsync also has other nice features, like makeing incremental copies *much* faster.08:47
JatuBilegt : Yeah what ? Or was it more a "okay I will check that" kinda yeah ?08:48
bilegtJatu: I'll check that08:48
Birlibandr-willis, ok, some more details. the files are a vm-ware machine. i need to transfer to another server. for accessing the files the vm has to be shut down. so i first want to copy them and then send to the other server (slow connection).08:48

BirlibanJordan_U, i just need it one time. so maybe i use cp. there is no progress bar, is it?08:55
JatuBilegt : What extensions where those if you don't mind me asking.08:55
bilegtJatu: xmarks, gmail and sooner08:56
JatuBilegt : Well  xmarks I never used. What I am thinking is they are trying to fetch extra data while your pages are loading. Possibly taking up extra bandwidth and causing it to slow.08:56
bilegtJatu: Now I'll use this method on google chrome again :P08:58

tpl2000Does anyone know why both dmidecode and LSHW display my RAM speed as 667mhz when it should be (6.67x240)mhz ?08:59

tpl2000That's the issue lol. How do I get them to display properly, then?09:00
JatuThat I have no clue lol.09:00
Jordan_UBirliban: Correct, there is no progress bar for cp. There is no resaon not to use "rsync --progress", just thought that you should know for the future that rsync is useful for a lot more than a progress bar :)09:01
bilegtJatu: it's such a weird bug. I found it out. It was not about extensions. The problem is with after initial installation of chrome, it asks to setup chrome with google account. It made chrome such a laggy.09:01
Jatubilegt : go faster once you set up google account ?09:02
bilegtJatu: go faster, when I avoided it and installed extensions manually09:02

sjihsHi, I have a machine with 8GB of RAM. I have installed 32-bit version of ubuntu 11.04 on it. The 'free -m' command reports a total RAM of 4GB even though /proc/cpuinfo indicated PAE is enabled.09:34
dr-willisif the cpu can do 64bit you are better off using the 64bit ubuntu09:36

richoHey09:38
richoSo I want to install ubuntu.. with no X server, no desktop environment09:38
richobasically just a kernel, coreutils and a fairly minimal userland09:38
richois there even a way to do that?09:38
=== zenix`away is now known as zenix`
sjihsdr-willis: The laptop is given by the company where i work. Hence i cannot re-install another version of ubuntu09:39
OerHeksricho, use the server iso09:39
richoOerHeks: there's nothing else that differs from the desktop install? Just the default suite of installed pacakges?09:39
sjihsdr-willis: Just curious, How does 'uname -a' help in determining kernel support for PAE?09:40
dr-willislook at kernel used09:41
dr-willismay have pae in the name09:41
OerHeksricho i am not sure what you want with a minimal install without a desktop environment, but server iso or the alternate iso can do that09:41
ActionParsnipricho: there is the minimal ISO09:41
richo_Thanks!09:42
ActionParsnipricho: you can install minimal then install openbox and you will have one of the slimmest OSes around, comes in at around 1.2Gb09:42
richo_ActionParsnip: that's more or less the plan. I run a fork of openbox + urxvt and a few other bits and pieces. I'll install a lot of software but I prefer to start clean slate09:43
ActionParsnipricho: you can install slim or some other login manager if you want a GUI login :)09:43

ActionParsnipricho_: indeed09:46
ActionParsnipricho_: its one way to do it though. Negates the need for a login manager (saves space)09:47
richo_true. I just login on a TTY and then call xinit09:48
richo_I set some expensive values in my environment anyway so I do a bunch of init only when SHLVL = 1 which saves me a lot of time too09:48

tiox[Priority: low] I want to add a command at shutdown that runs update-grub because I am tired of manually updating grub and this would relieve some issues with using systems on USB drives. On occasion when the rive is removed it's still seen in grub, and having grub regenerate grub.cfg every time resolves this issue so I was thinking having it run as a shutdown script would just be easier.11:44
ActionParsnipKrissed: Lubuntu is fully supported here too11:44

DarkApex /quit11:50
tioxI came in here before asking about it until someone told me about using the grub update command to resolve this issue manually.11:50
ikoniatiox: becuse grub2 is not usable properly as a dual linux booter11:51
tioxAhhh.11:51
ikoniatiox: the files it needs are on /etc on the localfile system, which makes it impossible for grub to manage multiple distros11:51
Islamwhat is the best software to use to install paltalk.exe on ubuntu 11.10 ?11:51
ikoniatiox: eg: if you have ubuntu installed and fedora, you update the fedora config, how can it update files on /etc/grub on the ubuntu partition, it can't11:51
tioxSo... I see.11:51
gry'grub2 is not usable properly as a dual linux booter' is there a good doc on that (apart from what I can find randomly myself)?11:52
ActionParsnipIslam: what does it do?11:52
ActionParsnipIslam: did you check the wine appdb?11:52
tioxIt's pretty odd stuff; I limit myself to Ubuntu/Debian systems for that reason alone.11:52
ikoniatiox: the old grub1 setup if you used a shared /boot partition both distros could manpipulate menu.lst on the shared /boot, now because it's in /etc/ on the controlling distro, you can't11:52
tioxBut even still oddities with Grub2 happens.11:52

garmetI have a slight issue with dual screens. I am using a KVM switch and been meddling around with that monitor sleeps when changing back to windoze. no probs in mint here.

The resolutions where correct and looked really sharp and nice. The deskto13:30
garmetps where aligned correctly with separate x windows using Xinerama. The problem though: The screen itself complains that the correct resolution is 1680x1050 @ 60Hz, which is exactly what it uses. After complaining awhile the screen sleeps because it thinks it has wrong resolution. Any thoughts?13:30
L3top... well... yes I guess I meant with root access.13:30

mneptokleftist: Apple is also the only company that knows how the iPhone internals work.13:54
_Marcusleftist: Have you tried Apple support yet?13:54
leftistno on ubuntu it causes the app that is provided via ubuntu os to push the cpu to 100%13:54
Zx432Currently it says loopback. I didn't manually configure it. I don't know how in text interface.13:54
leftisthell no marcus and i dont intend on that's not even practical. it has nothing to do with apple period.13:55
mneptokleftist: you bought an iPhone. the system requirements for it say clearly Windows or OSX. Apple is not going to write a driver. no one else is quite sure how.13:55

abeer_locsmif normally they are15:18
Defusallocsmif, is /run the swap partition?15:18
locsmifDefusal: with swapoff, you'd be running without swap for a while, which is not serious unless you're expecting to use copious amounts of memory during your operation15:18
Defusalwell theres very little running for now15:18
Defusaland the box has 16GB ram15:18
