ubottubekor: Please don't ask to ask a question, simply ask the question (all on ONE line and in the channel, so that others can read and follow it easily). If anyone knows the answer they will most likely reply. :-) See also !patience00:02
bekorhi, i am wondering how to get rid of issues like not being able to shut some window applications sometime ,like the issue of not having an x or a minmize sign.i am using 11.10 and cairo dock00:03
davide_at_debianwhat program in particular?00:04
bekorwell ok like for instance you have banshee running,you open the  equalizer and their is no way to shut it off00:05
bekori mean closing the window00:06
bekori have had to restart because of not seeing a way to close windows sometimes00:06
davide_at_debianwell, alt+f4 is a general solution, but anyway for banshee in particular there could be an hidden close button.00:06
davide_at_debianAlways, you can grep for the program's pid or issue a "pkill banshee" in extreme case00:07
bekorthanks dacide00:07
bekori mean davide00:07
nibbler_davide_at_debian, bekor: xkill is the better choice for sure, if you see the window00:07
AgamemnonZbekor: Was your main Banshee window maximized?00:07
bekorno i could not even maximize  by the way what is x kill?00:08
bekorwhat i am saying is how do i close it when i see no x?00:08
davide_at_debianrun it on terminal.. you'll see skull & bones to kill windows00:09
Dulakbekor: alt-f4 with the window active is the same as the X00:09
bekorbut why would i have to that is my point00:09
bekorthanks dulak00:10
dadfxkill is pretty cool- and is built into almost everything00:10
=== dadf is now known as haylo
davide_at_debianI don't know why you have too. maybe programs aren't made to be closed?00:10

Viking667I've got a question. I'm updating the xapian database, and it's taken about four hours so far...the machine is a laptop, and has 512Mb.00:11

Viking667ouch. I just realised the laptop's not running ubuntu...00:12
gdea73How do I adjust the scrolling speed in Ubuntu 10.10?00:15
gdea73I am using two-finger scrolling on my laptop's touchpad, and even Pointing Devices won't allow me to change the speed unless side-scrolling is enabled, which I don't want.00:16
AgamemnonZI'll try this question once more. Will 11.10 update LibreOffice to 3.5 or stay with 3.4? If going to 3.5, where can I see when this will approximately happen?00:17
gdea73wow is there really NO way to adjust it?00:17
gdea73AgamemnonZ: sorry I've got no idea... :/00:18
jeagleHow do I solve this problem in Ghostscript? :( "Substituting font Times-Roman for Helvetica-Condensed-Black. Can't find (or can't open) font file /usr/share/ghostscript/9.04/Resource/Font/Times-Roman."00:18
CFHowlett_AgamemnonZ   download 3.5.1 from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/  then sudo dpkg -i libreoffice.deb to install00:18
davide_at_debiangdea73: there are lots of ways. the simplest are using menus on your gnome00:18
gdea73davide_at_debian: What do you mean, using "menus"?00:19
davide_at_debianbut if you got synaptics, you have white paper on your Xconfigs00:19
gdea73I haven't found a way to edit the scrolling speed, with GUI or otherwise, in Gnome 2. That's why I was asking, and Opera appears to use Gnome's settings which I don't know how to change.00:19
gdea73I have a Synaptics touchpad, true, though I'm afraid I don't understand what you're talking about :(00:20
davide_at_debianwhen I used gnome, it had a "mouse" option under the settings menu00:20
AgamemnonZCFHowlett_:  I know how to install 3.5 (or use the ppa), but I don't want to use that method as I try to help someone else who needs some 3.5 functionality, but I don't want this person to work with unsupported software00:20
gdea73Yes, mine does as well. I have both "mouse" and "pointing devices," but neither will allow me to adjust the scroll speed.00:20
davide_at_debiangdea73: if you have synaptics I can give you a hint00:21
gdea73davide_at_debian: anything remotely resembling a hint, would be great :P00:21
AgamemnonZCFHowlett_: So I was trying to find out if and when 3.5 will be released through the normal update channels00:21
gdea73I do have a Synaptics touchpad...00:21

davide_at_debian  Option       "TapButton1" "1"00:23
Jacruthhi there, how could I now which dev is my pendrive?00:24
gdea73davide_at_debian: what exactly does that do, though? I didn't think it would allow me to adjust the scrolling speed, unless that's part of what you were saying...00:24
CFHowlett_AgamemnonZ   try apt-cache policy libreoffice to identify if it's in the stream.  sudo apt-get dist-upgrade might pul lit in.00:24
abdelrahmanis there anyway to rollback updates install  .. my system has become unstable00:24
gdea73Jacruth: I think Disk Utility would list it.00:24
Jacruthgde33, what do you mean, fdisk?00:24
gde33wrong person ;)00:25
gdea73In Ubuntu, there's an application called Disk Utility listed under System -> Administration00:25
Jacruthsorry gde3300:25
gdea73haha, yeah we happened to have similar nicks ;)00:25
davide_at_debiangdea73: yes it allows you to change scloll speed with the right entries00:25
gdea73anyway, I'm not sure but I think Disk Utility shows you the mountpoint.00:25
gdea73are USB flash drives even recognized as /dev/sdX? ah well I suppose Disk Utility would tell  you either way00:26
gdea73davide_at_debian: alright I'll have to try that then, thanks. Must I reboot to effect the changes?00:26
davide_at_debianjust look for those in the manual. it cames bundled with the synaptics .deb00:26
davide_at_debianno reboot, just a restart of X00:26
AgamemnonZCFHowlett_: I think it is not in the stream: http://paste.ubuntu.com/891540/00:27
gdea73davide_at_debian: okay, I entered the changes and I'll restart X with ctrl + alt + bksp00:28
CFHowlett_AgamemnonZ   not yet at least. wouldn't be surprised to see it in12.0400:28
gdea73however does the TouchButton 1 enable tap-to-click, because I'd rather that be off.00:28
gdea73but alright, I'll try00:28
davide_at_debiannono wait00:28
davide_at_debianit was only an example00:28
davide_at_debianthat is THE place00:28
Jacruthgdea73, I'll try to format a sd card using the disk utility, do you know if Fat option is Fat16? COuld it be Fat32?00:28

shishireI'm trying to take an already existing ubuntu 10.04 server install on a virtual machine, and trim down the size so that I can ship it as a vm appliance.  Google has been unhelpful in providing a list of packages/sets of things I can uninstall if I'm not using them.  My system only really needs a lamp stack.00:29
=== max is now known as Guest61138
davide_at_debianlet me see if i can retrive you a manual..00:29
shishireDoes anyone know of such a list?00:29
gdea73davide_at_debian: I entered those lines into xorg.conf but I still have no option for scrolling speed in mouse preferences...00:29
davide_at_debiangdea73: of course, menus arent affected by that, only effective hardware parameters00:30
davide_at_debianyou have to replace the section's content with your custom options, which you can find at:00:31
davide_at_debiangdea73: http://duckduckgo.com/ , and type "!man synaptics" in the search engine to get the manual00:31
gdea73davide_at_debian: alright thanks.00:32
quiescensshishire: you can probably remove most things but it would probably be best to keep all the packages that show up in: tasksel --task-packages minimal00:34

davide_at_debianmcruz: what kind of script are ypu trying to run?00:53
nathan_OerHeks, yes it has a switch to hop between integrated and discrete.00:54
mcruza simple one, the scrip execute the cat command line and redirect the output to /etc/resolv.conf00:54
OerHeksnathan_, check out https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Bumblebee & the channel #Bumblebee00:54
nathan_OerHeks, it's not NVIDIA :( It's an ATI card.00:54
OerHeksnathan_, i am not sure ati is optimus too00:55
davide_at_debianmcruz: so you just have to append the command into the rc.local file00:55
nathan_OerHeks, it's not Optimus00:55
mcruzi've try that but didnt work00:56
dlentzOerHeks, the generic term is 'hybrid graphics'00:56
davide_at_debiancan you paste the cat here?00:56
dlentzoptimus is nvidia's cute name for hybrid graphics00:56
OerHeksoke, then see the url from log https://help.ubuntu.com/community/HybridGraphics00:56
mcruz/bin/cat /home/mcruz/opendns >> /etc/resolv.conf00:56
nathan_OerHeks, that only works if the card has a hardware mux, but I don't believe mine does.00:58

TechIsCoolhey how do I download all the emails from the local ubuntu server? I don't want to send them but I want to download them to something readable02:27
ilyekkakaihelp me! nvidia drivers are activated but not in use????02:29
haz3lnutilyekkakai: you sure that's not a known bug?02:30
ghostconnwhat type of video vard are you using?02:30
ghostconngo to the additional drivers menu and try the (recommended) driver for you're card02:31
ssfdre38ilyekkakai, look for NVIDIA X Server Settings as that will be your display manager for your video card02:31

TechIsCoolCFHowlett_: Its just server so I don't think so02:32
ilyekkakaighostconn, nvidia GeForce 6800 GS... additional drivers is active.. it says "not in use"... there is NO option for visual effects in appearance settings02:32
ssfdre38ilyekkakai, follow what i said to do cause i use Nvidia on my tower and it will work02:33
ghostconnok... go to the additional drivers menu and you should have two options with two different  of which to install. Install the one you don't have and reboot02:34
m1chaeli'm trying to burn a mpg to dvd using growisofs... the dvd skips in a dvd player, otherwise it plays fine. anyone have any suggestions for me?02:34
ghostconnI had the same issue with many ati cards and i choose the recommended driver and that was never the case lol02:34
ilyekkakaissfdre38, what do you want me to do? Nvidia X Server setting runs, but it still says driver is not in use. And visual effects are still not available.02:35
ilyekkakaighostconn, The only other option I have for additional drivers is version 173. I will try that02:35
ssfdre38ilyekkakai, yea install the post-release drivers02:35
ghostconnkk let me know ...02:35
ilyekkakaibrb unless gdm fails to start again....02:36
ghostconnguarntee it will work02:36
ghostconnask around if you are having second thoughts02:36

phraktal77I've had a strange problem today. I was able to ping an IP but I was unable to either do an http request against the same IP or open a mysql connection to it02:41
phraktal77People around me on the same network were able to connect02:42
phraktal77my linux-hostile CTO told me it's cause of my "stupid" ubuntu... ;(02:43
phraktal77not sure what to do about it02:43
donsdIf I run mplayer from command line, I see some info and can quit by typing q.02:44
davide_at_debianphraktal77: it was a wise observation02:44
phraktal77I'm suspecting it's some routing problem, but can't put my finger on it. It's the latest ubuntu distribution02:44
donsdIf I run mplayer in crontab, the mp3 plays, but I do not see anything and cannot quit.02:45
ilyekkakaighostconn, I know. It is only the video card in this PC which doesn't like nvidia drivers.02:45
donsdIs there something I can do in crontab so I can see mplayer output?02:45
m4n_crontab for playing mp3?02:46
davide_at_debianphraktal77: you received a pong reply directly from that ip or from a midway router replying with some fail packet?02:46
donsdm4n_, yes, as an alarm.02:46
phraktal77davide_at_debian: ping was OK 100%02:46
phraktal77davide_at_debian: and all other functionality of the internet was working02:46

=== m4n_ is now known as m4n
donsdJust play mp3 at a set time.02:47
phraktal77davide_at_debian: According to my genius CTO, this is a common problem with ubuntu. It "stalls" like that for sometime, and than magically starts to work02:47
davide_at_debianmaybe you could run a wget from terminal to try get some useful output?02:47
phraktal77it happens only between our office and our datacenter02:47
phraktal77on many IPs02:48
m4ndonsd: just kill the process once you are done playing, IMO02:48
phraktal77I can try tomorrow when back at the office. Just need some plan, cause if I do not fix it, I'll look pretty stupid02:48
davide_at_debianwhat is the http reply message?02:48
phraktal77davide_at_debian: Requests just hand until they timeout02:49
phraktal77all of them02:49
donsdm4n, thanks for the feeback, but I want to see output.02:49
phraktal77davide_at_debian: He said it happend before to other people in the office, but went away by itself... Apparently does not happen on fedora but I'm not sure if there is enough fedoras to know02:50
CharminTheMooseI'm compiling a 2.6.39 kernel with aufs support, but 'make modules_install' is only installing crypto modules, despite me doing a 'make allmodconfig'.02:50
davide_at_debiandid the boss give some hint other then stupidity?02:50
klynchey, my keyboard's auto-repeat suddenly stopped working. I have no idea. thoughts?02:50
phraktal77davide_at_debian: no just stupid remarks. He really hates linux..02:50
phraktal77davide_at_debian: It's ok when the hole office fights with viruses though :)02:51
davide_at_debianI don't think a fedora could solve it, but you could try install it on a virtual machine just to hope02:51
phraktal77I'm thinking it could be related to my IP02:51
phraktal77I was trying to change it but DHCP would keep giving me the same02:51
davide_at_debianI may more probably be an office routing problen rather than one with your client02:52
phraktal77davide_at_debian: That's what I think too, apparently does not happen with windows boxes..02:53
phraktal77could it be some windows only "feature" on a router that linux can't handle ?02:53
phraktal77it's really strange... anyways, basically wasted a day on this issue today02:54
davide_at_debianfor a simple http request I don't think there could exist much special customization on windows side02:54
davide_at_debianbut, just as a thrown guess, you could try to fake the windows user agent in your browser02:56

MangoBoyapple_cat, so i could alias (| xclip -selection c -i) to copyx) and use that to pipe the outcome of tmux, or is the pastebuffer in a file or place i could cat ?04:08
Jon--esca, Ubuntu 11.10 seems to give you about 5-10 seconds before deciding to be parental and automatically bringing your i/f back up for you -_-'. Didn't work even in that window though, see http://pastebin.com/d5vwJLDx04:09
Jon--Used 17 as a test, just increasing +2 current.04:09
zivester_sorry, this is for watching if a file has changed, not actually tailing its contents.... so in my case, watching a set of files... when one of those changes, execute `make` again... like this: https://github.com/twitter/bootstrap/blob/master/Makefile#L56-5804:09
esca@jon-- once you do ifconfig down wlan0... you gotta do sudo iw reg set BO04:10
esca@a847 are you running the latest kernel with ubuntu 11.10?04:12
Jon--esca, Oh. THAT'S the one that needs i/f down. *face palm*. Gimme a min.04:12
ftg2is it possible to install from the iso without burning it?04:13
* ftg2 looks around for cds :\\04:13
apple_catMangoBoy: Yep an alias would be a good idea if you are going to use it a lot. For tmux there is 'tmux show-buffer'  so pipe that into the xclip thing and the xclip and tmux pastebuffers will be synced04:13
Jon--esca, No such luck, see http://pastebin.com/UtKTD2We  The final ifconfig I did to show i/f still down and the commands were done fast enough04:14
a847esca, 3.0.0-12-generic04:14
sacarlsonftg2: you can use a usb pen drive to boot/install or can also add an entry to a grub2 list if you already have grub2 installed04:14
dsnydersftg2, You could use the Pendrive linux USB installer system.  It would take a USB flash drive large enough to hold the ISO.04:15

sliktsedwardl: also, bash and shell scripting in general really sucks, learn something better like python05:43

ubottuThe core of Ubuntu is the Linux kernel: see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Kernel - You shouldn't have to compile your own, and if you need to troubleshoot issues, you can try a !Mainline kernel instead, but if you insist, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Kernel/Compile (see also !Stages)05:54
Jon--edwardl, Do what you want. You seem to have a passion, follow it. If that leads you into writing code at Microsoft, so be it. If it leads you into being a core developer for a Linux distribution, awesome. We can field any questions you might have but, really, go code something you WANT to do, and build your skills from there. :)05:55

=== an is now known as Guest80063
Jon--MestreLion, If I used FreeBSD, it'd be a CLI server for sure. Their X support is flaky at best.06:03
CFHowlett_npx   64 bit requires at least 4 gigs of ram ...06:03
MestreLionJon--: I think the answer depends on how far from your familiar experience you want to go... simply speaking, Arch is much closer to Ubuntu than FreeBSD06:03
npxCFHowlett_, no it doesn't, it just allows you to address more than 4gb of ram06:03
CFHowlett_npx ok -06:03
Jon--I was more looking for a professional opinion, from anyone who is in IT and in the industry, what would you prefer to see a fresh graduate with experience in.06:04
MestreLionnpx / CFHowlett_ 32bit with PAE also allows that06:04
Jon--I don't have a personal bias in either direction.06:04
CFHowlett_MestreLion   ty06:04
curiousxCFHowlett_: 32 bits kernel with PAE can support 64 Gb ram06:04
MestreLionJon--: if learning is your main focus, may I suggest Gentoo ? Or even LFS ?06:04
npxAnyway, can I install a 64-bit kernel and run this 32-bit userland?06:04
MestreLion64? I thought it was less, like 1606:05
MestreLionno npx06:05
Jon--npx, I don't believe that you can.06:05
MestreLionnpx: 32-bits apps and (and their libraries) have a completely different kernel ABI06:06
curiousxbut you can install ia-32libs06:07
MestreLionnpx: altough *some* 32 bits software can still work provided their libraries are in ia-32libs package06:07
curiousxand i sow installing programs forcing the architecture06:07
MestreLionbut that is a case-by-case scenario, not a general solution06:08

npxno, I'm using debootstrap to install Debian from a Wubi installation of Ubuntu06:08

Jon--MestreLion, I don't know, why don't you try doing it in glibc ;)06:11
MestreLiongreat idea Jon-- !!! :D06:11
npxyou can't use --force-architecture to spawn a chroot /bin/bash that's compiled for 64-bit when you're running a 32-bit kernel06:11
MestreLionUbuntu is multiarch now, afterall ! :D06:11
npxi have to setup the 64-bit system to spawn TTYs and whatnot06:11
Jon--npx, No, you can't, but hoping distributions aren't going to help you do that either.06:12
npxso meh, i'll just use the i386 build, it's all good06:12
Jon--The kernel binaries are completely different. Use i386 or virtualize :P06:12
npxi'm not hopping distros, I'm just using ubuntu to install debian because this machine has no CD06:12

emily_hey everyone, am I being a total idiot or can someone help me pls?06:51
tuccuriousx, what next06:51
chrootyes, you are right.06:51
IMeerkatMade the switch from Ubuntu recently. I was a Debian user :)06:51
chrooti am using google now.06:51
emily_I can't access the wifi that the hotel that I'm staying at is providing, even though Ubuntu detects it06:52
Squid1made half a switch to ubuntu06:52
Squid1i like what i see so far06:52
curiousxtuc: in this order: http://paste.ubuntu.com/891827/06:52
Squid1gonna take some getting used to06:52
IMeerkatEmily use an ssh tunnel06:52
emily_I am online via WinBlows atm06:52
emily_ssh tunnel? how do I do that IMeerkat?06:52
curiousxyou have to do double click on the .deb pakages in this order06:53
curiousxtuc: you have to do double click on the .deb pakages in this order06:53
IMeerkatDo you have a web server?06:53
curiousxthis way will install 3.2.12 32 bits PAE06:53
IMeerkatIe your own website?06:53
emily_yeah IMeerkat it's the login page06:53
curiousxwhich recognize more than 4 gb ram06:53
omeHow can I list partations with they are label ?06:54
curiousxdo you copy : roger that =P xD06:54
curiousxi am latino and i like the inglish language =)06:55
curiousxbut i dont know to write very well =(06:55
IMeerkatAnyone here using tor?06:56
UrBemily_: so you can reach the hotel wifi login page with Ubuntu too or not?06:56
omeIMeerkat: why ?06:56
IMeerkatJust wondering06:56
curiousxIMeerkat: install vidalia tor's GUI06:56
emily_no UrB I can't even access the login page, it tells me that it is unable to load page06:56
curiousxIMeerkat: sudo apt-get install vidalia06:57
omeIMeerkat: it's safe to assume there is lots of people who does - at least in IRC/freenode, if not this channel specifically.06:57
IMeerkatOh emily google ssh tunneling hak5. Easy way to tunnel to your webserver and get free hotel wifi06:57
UrBemily_: did it fail to connect to the wifi altogether?06:57
tuccuriousx, ok am installin in the order06:58
UrBI've had experiences with hotel wifis where it took several connection attempts to get it actually running06:58
curiousxok, =)06:58
emily_what do I do, open up a terminal window IMeerkat?06:58
emily_yes UrB it failed to connect even though Ubuntu detected the WiFi06:58
tuccuriousx, i need 64 bit06:58
IMeerkatCuriousx: I know I have it06:58
tuccuriousx, i am using ubuntu 64bit06:59
IMeerkatEmily it will only work if you can point to a webserver06:59
emily_maybe if I tried harder UrB?06:59
UrBemily_: could be that dhcp failed07:00
emily_maybe wasn't so impatient?07:00
tucMestreLion, i need 64bit07:00
emily_sorry I don't' know that07:00
UrBemily_: the process where your laptop gets a network address from the hotel wifi07:00
emily_ah I c07:00
MestreLiontuc: not necessarily07:00
emily_what does that mean exactly UrB?07:00
UrBnot much from the end user view point, it just won't work then :)07:01
curiousxmmm... it doesn't matter when you turn on the notebook you can chose betean 32 bits or 64 bits kernel, the new which are installing right now and the old07:01
IMeerkatI'm surprised so many people here don't use an IRc bouncer. Odd.07:01
curiousxor if you want, you can install also the 3.2.12 64 bits as you like07:01
emily_so maybe I should just be patient and keep trying until it sticks UrB?07:01
tucMestreLion, how can in install 32bit kernel when am using 64bit07:01
UrBbut I'd try few times with Ubuntu again switching the wifi off/on between the attempts07:01
MestreLiontuc: i mean... you don't HAVE to use 64bits just because of your RAM size...07:01
omeemily_: computers doesn't talk names, they talk numbers, so when you type google.com it has to be changed to googles ip address, something like
MestreLiontuc: oh, sorry... yes, if your current system is 64, go 6407:02
emily_I know that ome but thanx :)  I just didn't know what that four letter protocol was that's all, I'm an Ubuntu newbie07:02
omeemily_: fair enough.07:02
UrBemily_: same thing happens under windows too, it's not really operating system related07:02
emily_right? ok UrB07:03
curiousxtuc: this step i gove ya, will install PAE which mean that your kernel will recognize mor than 4 gb ram, i taste that07:03
emily_so then maybe if I just acted persistently and kept trying07:03
IMeerkatHotel wifi is brutal07:03
curiousxi ran 8 gb in 32 bit with PAE07:03
emily_I turned the comp on and off and it still didn't take...07:03
UrBemily_: you don't have to turn the whole computer on/off, just do that to wifi07:03
UrBthat should be enough to start from a "fresh table"07:04
MestreLioncuriousx: but his current system is 64 already07:04
IMeerkatEmily what kind of laptop do you have?07:04
tuccuriousx, but i have only 2gb ram and currently using ubuntu 64bit07:04
emily_guess I'll have to fiddle with it then...07:04
emily_I have a lenovo07:04
omeemily_: Do you get any specific error ?07:04
IMeerkatYour wifi card should be supported07:04
omeor it just says connection error ?07:04
tuccuriousx, how can install 32bit kernels.. plz send 64bit link07:05
UrBemily_: possibly stupid questio - has the wifi worked on ubuntu before?07:05
curiousxok MestreLion tuc07:05
IMeerkatMight help open terminal type: sudo apt-get update07:05
emily_um yeah it says 'unable to connect' and yeah it has UrB this is just something new that's come up07:05
curiousxmmm... give a minute to do a paste with the steps in order07:05
tuccuriousx, ok07:06
emily_'you are now offline' is what it says I think07:06
curiousxoh! yours programs wa installed for 64 bits i forgot that =P07:06
emily_the wifi worked on Ubuntu before, it seemed to work ok when I turned the comp off then on again07:06
emily_but just today I kept trying to get online and it wouldn't but I'll try that, I will try turning the wifi on and off07:07
UrByou are no alone with the issues :)07:07
emily_not sure how to go about doing that but....07:07
omeemily_: Do you know the wifi chipset or the driver you are currenty using ?07:07
viciumAnyway, Can either of you reccomend a template/dist to run using a ECS? I've found that ubuntu 11.04 x64 doesnt really do it for me, the kernel/whatever you would refer it to, is poorly optimized for 32bit applications, if that makes any sense.. I run a mumble server/cs server/apache/mysql07:07
emily_ummmmm nope sorry ome07:07
UrBemily_: type lsusb and/or lspci in terminal07:08
vicium11.10 is not available :/07:08

chrootwell,  is there a program that can compare two pictures and if the two equal then return a value or exit suceessfully?07:08
tuccuriousx, thnx07:09
viciumIMeerkat: Yes?07:09
viciumAm i confusing? :P07:09
curiousxtuc: np07:09
apple_catchroot: Why would it need to be a program that compares pictures, rather than just any file type?07:09
fbdystangHi, I have a ubuntu server that I can ping, but when I try to pull up the webpage, it times out. Please advise07:09
viciumWell like.. Is there any pros to downgrading from a 11.04 template to a 10.04?07:09
viciumOr perhaps dumping ubuntu totally :p07:10
chrootapple_cat,  because I want to use face recognition.07:10
vicium(elastic cloud server)07:10
chrootso i need compare two pictures and need a result07:10
chrootapple_cat,  any idea?07:10
apple_catchroot: imagemagick might have something, there's a good library called 'opencv' that might have some apps made that will do what you want07:11
Crooks_mobilei know libraries exist that deal with this chroot.  youll likely have to code some thing yourself though07:11

chrootthen I need to install the opencv lib right?07:14
chrootand then learn to use the opencv and write the program i want ?07:14
UrBemily_: is the hotel network secured or just with the login page?07:14
olegbchroot: asking google brings up: http://pdiff.sourceforge.net/07:14
apple_catchroot: That's the general idea, yes07:15
emily_just with the login page, it is an open wifi UrB07:15
chrootbut if i just want to use the idea app, and not to design it myself?07:15
chrootit seems a lot of work.07:15
apple_catchroot: Yes, designing your own facial recognition software could be a lot of work07:16

UitrixHello everybody! I have a problem starting ubuntu.. It's 11.10. On the start screen I have a message, that system is trying to set up full network support, then waits 60 seconds trying to do that, then starting system without full network support. I guess, this is because it doesn't know my modem device, cause wi-fi and lan works perfectly. So, I don't need my modem device.. How to turn it off by defalt, or just say ubuntu to load without full network support10:51
eSoul128quick question, if i install beta 1 if 12.04 on my machine, when beta 2 and "gold" are released, will apt-get update/dist-upgrade get me to latest baring any major changes10:52
UitrixI've tried to google, found nothing..10:52
eSoul128Vitrix, have you found a way in your systems bios to disable the modem10:52
UitrixeSoul128, no. Haven't found that option in BIOS10:53
Uitrixand can't unplug it, cause it's laptop10:53
eSoul128I almost guessed tat, vitrix, just because if it was a desktop im sure you would have yanked it hours ago10:54
philinuxeSoul128: this question comes up every 6 months. If it's up to date you got the latest and greatest10:54
[Si]could you just blacklist the module for the modem?10:54
eSoul128hmmm, you could try making some symlinks from /dev/ttyS0-9 (serial ports if im not mistaken)  to /dev/null to keep them from probing possibly?10:54
torvaldHi, i have a non-persistent customized live usb stick with Ubuntu where i want to update the kernel. I have the updated kernel installed on my laptop - can't i simply copy the image/vmlinuz to the bootfolder and add them to grub? I get a "init not tainted" when it boots. :/10:55

eSoul128becasue if its at boot10:56
eSoul128before your first login10:56

samineruWell, thanks for talking, I'm gonna go eat breakfast move on with my day11:39
eSoulsome are 2 tb11:39
eSoulsome are 75011:39
eSouli think it might be close to 9TB total, but i have two 2TB drives mirrored together with ZFS11:40
anudaasaeSoul: is possible to have NTFS on 2 TB disk ?11:40
eSoulas long as you have WinXP sp1 or abov11:40
eSoulif you are using an orginal release xp disk, you will only be able to make partitions up to 100 or something GBs in size11:41
anudaasaSoul: 100TB is enough :-)11:41
eSoulanudaasa -- no, only 100GBs11:42
eSoulIt may even be less.  It wasnt using LBA-48 addressing11:42
eSoul(i think, could be pulling crap from my butt)11:42
anudaasaI have 250 GB disk with ntfs11:43
eSoulas long as at least sp1 is install or slipstreamed onto the disk, it can be recognize11:44

Kk2hello, after changing my kernel to 3.2.12 all boot logos, for starting, and shutdown/reboot, are just gone how i restore that?11:45
=== angela-android is now known as nothingspecial
anudaasakk2: thank you, i will no using kernel 3.2.x :-)11:46
Kk2lol, why anudaasa? everyting is working, less the ubuntu logo from booting :P11:47
[Si]Kk2 sounds like your framebuffer driver is missing from your 3.2 kernel11:47
anudaasakk2: i have 3.0.x and working everythink11:48
[Si]what graphics card/drivers are you using in your old kernel?11:48
Kk2nvidia 295.20, working properly in every kernel :P11:48
Kk2old and new11:49
=== chopin_ is now known as jkeiper
[Si]I only ever got the logo using the nouveau drivers, the nvidia ones don't support KVM so I guess you were using uvesa or similar for the framebuffer drivers11:50
Kk2so, i will not get the logo screens anymore? is there anyway i change for text mode? like see the kernel coming up, configuring dhcpd and all? in text, without the buffer logo?!11:51
Kk2hmm i found a way, just editing the grub :)11:55
[Si]Kk2 edit /etc/default/grub. Change the "GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT" to have "nomodeset" then add "GRUB_GFXPAYLOAD_LINUX=text" to the end of the file. Then run Update grub11:55
[Si]sorry had to boot up my pc with the Nvidia in it to check.11:55
Kk2thx a lot [Si] :D11:55
[Si]no worries Kk2 took a bit of fiddling to make that work here, this is on 11.10 btw.11:55
wormKk2 after that, run this command: "update-grub >/boot/grub/grub.cfg" Don't forget the >, or it will just print the result out.11:56
Kk2thx a lot :D11:57
[Si]worm on 11.10 sudo update-grub does that for you :)11:57

worm[Si] Yes. But something wrong happened to me... Because I am installing another copy of Linux to my USB Drive, it is listed to my boot list...12:01
GVolkman1Good morning all. I have a very serious issue with grub. I have an md raid that had the drive with /boot and grub which died. I replaced the drive, resynced, all good; but I can't grub-install $targdrive, or use dpkg-reconfigure, here is what I get: http://pastebin.com/md9tN06J12:03
GVolkman1Am I SOL on a bootloader?12:03

vikrantWhen I log out from my Ubuntu session, my screen goes blank and could not get my login screen back...can anyone please help12:05
sgggGVolkman1, sorry. I don't understand what you mean.12:05
wormCan anyone tell me how to upload files to a server using vsftpd? I want to use a ubuntu machine as a file server.12:06
wormAlthough I login by my username, it did not work. It is necessary for me to upload files via Windows Explorer.12:07
wormIt just told me I have no permission to do so.12:07
eSoulworm, if you have ssh access, get winscp to copy your files12:08
wormvikrant Press Ctrl+Alt+F1 to switch to text mode and login, then run "sudo restart lightdm".12:08
mcb_worm: In your vsftp configuration did you enable: $write_enable=YES. It is disable by default.12:09
vikrantworm, I am using gdm and have tried that...but didnt work...My X session gets killed, but a new X session isn created...12:10

mandzauitrix i had same problem, i solved it by restarting my modem12:12
wormmcb_ Oh, I found it. Thanks a lot. But why the programmer just put a "#" to that line? It is so hard to find that.12:12
mcb_worm: The # caracter means that it is a comantary. Taking it out will actualy uncomment the line and "turn on" the configuration.12:13
vikrantworm, i am working on a multiseat environment using console kit and gdm...my host machine is working fine and logouts and logins properly...But the usb seats connected doesnt get login screen after logout...12:13

abhinavmehtaso is there some way to ping pptpd-port/sevice../12:24
hekateHi, does anyone know whether the llvm package in apt for Ubuntu 10.04 is enough to have the llvm compiler?12:25
mcb_abhinavmehta: You can use netcat, it is not a ping, more like a telnet, but it will connect to any port/service, even UDP.12:25
abhinavmehtamcb_: cool, thanks. :)12:26
abhinavmehtamcb_: any idea, which port is used by pptpd ?12:26

balcould you halp me to install a printere step by step? ubuntu 11.10 canon printer- LBP290012:44
dr_willis_canon is kniwn to often have poor linux support.12:44
dr_willis_if its supported a printer should plug in and just work.12:45
baldr_willis_: it is not working12:45
dr_willis_chevked the printer support site to see if its even working?12:46
dr_willis_err supported12:46
JSeymourWhat dr_willis_ said.  One of the reasons I won't buy Canon any more, @home or @work.12:47
baldr_willis_: printer is shows when i add printer but not working12:47
balany  way   i need to use  na12:47
dr_willis_check the cups logs. and askubuntu.com it may need some extra package12:49
GlaceeWhat would be the best way to set up a mirror?12:49
JSeymourbal: As dr_willis_ asked: Did you check the printer support site to see if that printer is supported?12:50
baldr_willis_:  it is there but i don't know how to do it12:50
balto much scripts  and am new to ubuntu12:50
JSeymourbal: I assume you're using CUPS.  I just entered "2900" into the driver search and came up empty.  Just because CUPS "sees" it doesn't mean CUPS *supports* it.12:51
sacarlsonbal: I had a canon printer IP1880 and never got it to work in 64bit ubuntu, I did have success with 32bit as they didn't release an open driver and at the time only supported 32bit12:51
bali downloded the cann CAPT CAP12:52

JSeymourbal: *nod*  Sorry, don't have an answer for you.  Like I said: You're discovering one of the reasons I won't buy Canon anymore.  Last time I renewed copier/printer/scanner leases @work, stayed w/Canon.  Next time it'll be something else.  They're horrible.12:59

klyncsarthor: or rsync with some combo of include / exclude patterns13:07
sarthorgreat.. klync13:07
norbert79sarthor: Agree, depends on what you would like to achieve13:07
klyncsarthor: the first won't preserve directory structure; the second would13:07

Zaitzevalthough, the "&" didn't do much good, there are still lines in terminal (WARN)13:11
omeZaitzev: well, you can close the terminal and reopen it without killing unity.13:11
Zaitzevnvm, ^C worked fine..thought first it would close unity  :P13:11

JSeymourome: You don't need to reinstall Grub.  You just need to restore the MBR.13:43
fabianscneo1691: I think you. If you install Windows, it will overwrite your bootloader. Ununtu will insert your windows partition into grub. Another way is ubuntu wubi. It is like a program for windows, which has a virtual disk (like a virtual machine) but will be executed by the bootloader13:43

Defusali don't quite get this, i switched from putty to SecureCRT recently for my windows ssh client, as it got the best ratings. but now with this client, if my connection dies, all processing running in ssh sessions continue in the background, which forces me to kill them manually later to free listening ports and stuff... does anyone have any idea why this would be happening?13:44
JSeymourneo1691: You'll also have to know where you save the MBR to, and mount the partition that's on13:44
JSeymourneo1691: *Don't* save it to /tmp, on the running system, if /tmp is a RAM fs ;)13:45
JSeymour(The foregoing all assumes the reader has reasonable 'nix skillz.)13:46
neo1691JSeymour,  its difficult for me it seems13:46
JSeymourneo1691: You have a thumb drive?  Save it to that.13:47
JSeymourLet's say you plug the thumb drive in an Linux mounts it as "Thumb".  It'll be under /media/Thumb13:48
omeJSeymour: from what I see, he doesn't know how to backup the MBR. that is why I suggested to reinstall Grub2. considering that he has a diff. partation for bootloader.13:48
=== hashashin is now known as Guest7131
neo1691JSeymour,  ok i willl give it a try!!13:48
JSeymourOr try ome's suggestion.13:48
sarthorI am trying to move files with some extentions, but no success. here is the problem. `find -P /home/safa/Desktop/22/ -name "*.jpg" -or .... -exec mv {} /media/HardDisk/22 \;`13:48
sarthorfind: paths must precede expression: ....13:48
sarthorUsage: find [-H] [-L] [-P] [-Olevel] [-D help|tree|search|stat|rates|opt|exec] [path...] [expression]13:48
JSeymourome: The MBR is always in the same place.13:49
sarthorklync: please check this again.13:49
JSeymourneo1691: Let's say your thumb drive is mounted as "Thumb".  It'll be in /media/Thumb.13:50
=== DJ is now known as Guest49702
neo1691Can easyBCD help me in that case??13:50
JSeymourSo if you "dd if=/dev/sda of=/media/Thumb/MBR_backup bs=512 count=1"...13:51
klyncsarthor: you're not literally using "...", are you? I meant to replace that with the other extensions you want to find. see the man page for more details13:51
=== bladernr_afk is now known as bladernr_
JSeymourThen, when you boot off the live CD, plug in the thumb drive, see where it mounts it (may be the same) and do the 2nd part.  Either sudo or su -.13:52
playmanhow can I see if my samba has a domain name?13:52
sarthorklync: I am new to linux. and i also want to mv .jpg extentions.13:52
omeJSeymour: but doesn't it has to be update to read the Grub partation as active rather then that of last installed OS (XP in this case) ?13:53
thetinyjesuscan anyone help with getting an nvidia 310m card working?13:53
omethetinyjesus: Nope. No one would really help you unless you try it yourself and have a specific problem that you can't solve. :)13:54
JSeymourIf the Live CD system doesn't mount the thumb drive automatically, you can "mount /dev/sdb1 /mnt", for example, in which case your thumb drive will now appear under /mnt13:54
geirhasarthor: find /home/safa/Desktop/22/ \( -name "*.jpg" -o -name "*.flv" -o -name "*.mp3" \) -exec mv {} /media/HardDisk/22 \;13:54
thetinyjesusome, i'13:54
thetinyjesusome, ive tried to do several different things which all cause my computer to disable all display adapters13:54
JSeymourome: It's been my experience that 'doze doesn't mess with partition active, etc. status'13:54
JSeymourneo1691: Might not be a bad idea to boot off a LiveCD before you start to see how the thumb drive is handled and what you're going to have to do13:55
riverykalguien me ayuda, utilidad de discos no detecta mi disco externo, que puedo hacer???13:55
omeJSeymour: I don't know much of about BIOS, but if MBR and Active partation is constant how does diff. OS/bootlaoders are loaded ?13:56
omes/of about/about13:57
JSeymourDoesn't the MBR point to the desired bootloader?  Isn't that what a Master Boot Record is?13:57
JSeymourThing is: Doing it my way, I think you have to somehow tell Grub about the new 'doze partition.  I don't recall.13:58
omeJSeymour: so that means, you have to update the MBR to laod the desired bootloader ?13:58
JSeymourneo1691: ^^^13:58
JSeymourome: That's the way *I* understand it works: Yes.13:59
omeJSeymour: 'aight then. I thought you said its always the same.13:59
JSeymourome: That's why, when you install a new 'doze, you lose Linux entirely, because the 'doze install overwrites the MBR with a new one.13:59
JSeymourome: No: I said it's always in the same place.14:00
JSeymour1st 512 bytes of the raw device.14:00
neo1691JSeymour, Ok i will try to do that!! But i am a noob at linux commands. You still helped me a lot14:00
omeand to tell the Grub about the new partation, you can edit the grub.conf yourself or just run `update-grub2` and let it find all OS itself.14:00
omeJSeymour: oh my bad then. :)14:00
JSeymourome: That's what I *meant* to say, anyway :)14:00

fabianscHi again. I am on my way to patch my wireless card for using aircrack (IT Security Lecture at university). The manual says I need to decide which kernel version I am useing (3.2 or newer) or (older kerlnels)14:04
fabianscDo they mean my linux kernel (I guess it's 3.0) or a "wireless kernel" if this exists14:04
ikoniafabiansc: there is no such thing as a wireless kernel14:04
theadminfabiansc: Which Ubuntu version are you using? The latest kernel in Ubuntu, if I recall correctly, is 3.114:04
ikoniafabiansc: the fact that you are not comfortable with this inforamtion suggests you should not be trying to patch the kernel14:05
nlkohi guys, i have added "profile" tpo my grub boot conf, do i leave it there, or do i remove it after a few boots?14:05
nlkoone blog i read suggests i remove it once it has profiled?14:05
fabiansctheadmin: Ubuntu 11.10 :-) Is there a way to check the kernel version?14:05
nlkoim trying to get a faster boot time14:05
playmanOer: ok, but I didint install the samba originally, it was allready installed, there for i'm trying to find this out14:05
theadminfabiansc: uname -r14:05
mcb_playman: In /etc/samba/cmb.conf the tag WORKGROUP= <domain name>14:05
ikoniafabiansc: I very very VERY strongly advise you not to try to patch the kernel at your current ability14:05
fabianscikonia: thanks for the advise; but I need to based on my lecture. I guess it can only kick ubuntu down; so I need to reinstall it.14:06
theadminSpeaking of custom kernels, how do you generate initrd/initcpio on Ubuntu?14:06
ikoniafabiansc: I doubt your lecture forces you to do something like this14:06
mcb_playman:: Also see if the setting domain master is set to yes. If so your samba is the domain master.14:06
abhinavmehtaI'm trying to configure 'pptp' eg. VPN-server…while doing that, I'm confused at /etc/pptpd.conf attribute localip & remoteip….14:07
abhinavmehtaMy local network is behind the wireless router…so IP should be 192.xxx something eg. local-ips…or should I provide ISP-provided ups..?14:08
fabianscikonia: We need to simulate an attack on a wireless lan and present the results... there is no further support... but that's my problem :-)14:08
fabianscwe are writing a seminarpaper about it afterwards14:08
ikoniafabiansc: have you considered using a distro that is aimed to do that14:08
fabianscI was thinking about backtrack 3, but it didn't work with my hardware14:09
ikoniafabiansc: with the utmost respect, how can you give a lecture on something like this when you have no understanding of how to use/manage the tool14:09
theadminfabiansc: Try backtrack, I say. Messing with the kernel is, in general, a bad idea. Unless you're running gentoo I guess.14:09
ikoniafabiansc: why not a modern backtrack install14:09
Defusal_in case anyone answered my question while i was timing out, please repaste it14:09
fabianscikonia: my hardware is completely not supporter. I tried it before.14:09
Defusal_because now i have the issue again, and would really like to know why it is happening14:09
playmanmcb_: you mean the "domain logons"? it's uncommented (it has the ; sign in front of it)14:10
theadminDefusal_: Repeat your question please, since a ton of lines was here after you asked, likely14:10
ikoniafabiansc: backtrack is based on ubuntu14:10
ikoniafabiansc: so if ubuntu works, backtrack will work14:10
Defusal_i don't quite get this, i switched from putty to SecureCRT recently for my windows ssh client, as it got the best ratings. but now with this client, if my connection dies, all processing running in ssh sessions continue in the background, which forces me to kill them manually later to free listening ports and stuff... does anyone have any idea why this would be happening?14:10
nibbler_suddenly my center mousebutton does not paste anymore. any hint where to configure this?14:10
fabianscikonia: It doesn't boot at all and stuck while booting; only hard reset helps. Ubuntu boots fine. I don't know what else could be the issue. MD5 is fine.14:11
xerzhey can someone tell me whats the command for unix to download irssi on a VPS?14:11
theadminDefusal_: I think that's a normal behaviour. Nothing kills the processes => they continue running14:11
JSeymourNeed some help w/b0rk3d upgrade: Got this: http://paste.ubuntu.com/892113/ then tried this http://paste.ubuntu.com/892221/14:11
ikoniafabiansc: what version of backtrack have you tried ?14:11
Defusal_theadmin, err, that is not how ssh sessions work...14:11
mcb_playman: Both # and ; characters comments lines in smb.conf14:11
fabianscBT3 RC something (actual)14:11
Defusal_when the ssh session dies, so do all processes that it is running14:11
theadminDefusal_: Eh... Hm.14:11
ikoniafabiansc: ok, that is very old, try a modern version, backtrack 4 - 514:11
nmvictorI hav an old laptop that cant boot USB drive, the CD drive is not working and so the only available solution is network booting via PXE. Is their a guru on this area to take me through, I already have dhcp3-server and tftpboot installed in the machine i  want to set up as server. I dont knwo what next, someone please take me through.14:11
oCeanDefusal_: try contacting the maintainers of that client program, it is not an ubuntu issue14:11
Defusal_oCean, my question is not how to fix the client, its how this is possible in the first place14:12
oCeanDefusal_: it is not an ubuntu issue, so offtopic for this channel14:12
Defusal_it breaks ssh's expected behaviour14:12
MonkeyDustxerz  depends on what package manager Unix uses14:12
fabianscikonia: Ah that's old? Huh - than I'll take a second look for it. Thanks14:12
Defusal_oCean, ok, then i will rephrase my question14:12
garmetnot much response from #xorg :( anyone can take a look at this? http://pastebin.com/KU0qMH0m I'm trying to figure out why changing: "Screen1" RELATIVE "Screen0" 1920 0    ->   1920 200 increases the window alignment gap instead of decreasing it :(14:13
ikoniafabiansc: I promise using a distro that is built to do what you want rather than trying to patch the ubuntu kernel, will be a lot lot easier14:13
xerzMonkeyDust: Linux expres 2.6.18-274.7.1.el5.028stab095.1 #1 SMP Mon Oct 24 20:49:24 MSD 2011 i686 GNU/Linux14:13

Defusal_oCean: if you are unable to help, rather keep quiet please14:13
xerzwhat command would i use?14:13
fabianscikonia: do you know whether i can install it like my ubuntu right now (via wubi)?14:14
ikoniaxerz: please pastebin the output of lsb_release -a14:14
ikoniafabiansc: no, and you're using wubi, bad idea14:14
Defusal_how is it possible to disconnect from a SSHd, without the session dying? i have always assumed this is impossible, but since i now see it is possible, i'd like to know how it can be done, and if it is possible to reconnect to the same session again14:14
MonkeyDustxerz  or simply lsb_release -sd14:14
oCeanDefusal_: no, I am pointing out the guidelines for you. If you can't behave accordingly, I'll have to mute or remove you14:14
xerzikonia: Distributor ID:Debian Description:Debian GNU/Linux 5.0.8 (lenny) Release:5.0.8 Codename:lenny14:14
ikoniafabiansc: if you are going to do a job - do it right, get a distro like back track, install it properly in a dual boot setup14:14
nmvictorAny help with PXE booting, please!14:14
ikoniaxerz: #debian would be the channel you want14:14
fabianschmm that's bad. USB Stick is too slow and stucks. Ubuntu wubi is fine for me. So I need to make a second partition14:15
Defusal_oCean, i am well aware of the guidelines, my question is perfectly valid, please stop harrassing me14:15

nmvictorikonia: will you please take me throu'14:16
Defusal_but i guess maybe a general linux channel will be able to provide an answer, since sshd isnt exactly specific to ubuntu14:16
JSeymourDefusal_: Gotta go w/oCean on this one: Your question seems OT for this channel.  Neither component are Ubuntu things.  One is either SSH or OpenSSH, the other a Windows application.14:16
ZaitzevWhat command do I run in terminal to give full read+write access to /var/www and all files and subfolders, with a user other than root?14:16
ikoniaDefusal_: there are some windows clients that work like screen14:16
[Si]Defusal_ I would say look at screen ctrl-a d disconnects screen -r rejoins.14:16
MonkeyDustDefusal_  maybe this link is useful http://embraceubuntu.com/2006/02/03/keeping-ssh-sessions-alive/14:16
ikoniaDefusal_: they run a daemon and the client connects to that daemon that does the ssh work14:16
JSeymourDefusal_: SSH isn't specific to anything, really.14:16
Defusal_JSeymour, ok, i will try find someone related to sshd, please make sure everyone in here refuses to help anyone with anything related to ssh in the future. thanks14:17
ikonianmvictor: what part of pxe booting are you not clear with ?14:17
Defusal_[Si], i am not talking about screen.14:17

ubottuDefusal_, please see my private message14:17
Defusal_i should have made that more clear14:17

ikoniaDefusal_: I said there are some clients that act LIKE screen14:17
Defusal_bazhang, my attitude was fine until i got harassed14:17
Defusal_ikonia, i have not yet responding to you14:18
ikoniaDefusal_: in that the front end you see isn't actually doing the work , the application daemon is14:18
bazhangDefusal_, thats enough.14:18
JSeymourDefusal_: You're more likely to get better help elsewhere, is all I'm saying.  You're looking for expertise that might better be found elsehwere.14:18
Defusal_JSeymour, i got that, thanks14:18
MonkeyDustDefusal_  there's also the channel #network or #networking14:18
nmvictorikonia: well, im not clear with the settings to write to /etc/dhcp/dhcpd.conf14:18
JSeymourDefusal_: You're welcome.  Good luck finding your answer.14:18

nmvictorikonia: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/DisklessUbuntuHowto14:20
Defusal_MonkeyDust: no sshd or server configuration has changed14:21
ikonianmvictor: ok, so looking at the dhcp server config example in that link, what part isn't clear ?14:21
MonkeyDustDefusal_  it seems you're refusing each and any tip you're getting here, better ask your question in the #network channel14:22
nmvictorikonia: First, the address used after subnet, does it have to be the one used or is their a particular one I have to use?14:22
Defusal_MonkeyDust, my question is quite specific, but as i said, i will try ask in other linux related channels14:22
Defusal_and im not refusing anything14:23
Defusal_i am looking for a very specific answer14:23
ikoniaDefusal_: contact the application vendor for an explination14:23
nibbler_resolved: defective mouse key :(14:23
Defusal_ikonia, my question is unrelated to the client, i want to know how sshd possibly allows this14:23
Defusal_and how i can exploit it to resume sessions14:23
ikoniaDefusal_: you'll need to know how the client works to understand that14:24
Defusal_but most importantly, how it is possible in the first place14:24
ikoniaDefusal_: as I said it maybe running a daemon/service as some windows ssh clients do14:24
ikoniaDefusal_: finding out from the client vendor how it works is the first step14:24
=== Knorre`BNC is now known as Knorre
Defusal_ikonia, as i said, im pretty sure theres no daemon, i am looking at my process list now14:24

ikoniaDefusal_: ask the vendor how it works, once they explain how it works you can look at working out if this is a risk or not14:25
ikoniait's pointless to speculate14:25
ikoniaget facts, work with facts14:25
Defusal_regardless of the clients works, sshd either has a serious flaw, or a feature14:25

ubottujo__: Ubuntu 8.04 LTS (Hardy Heron) was the eighth release of Ubuntu. Desktop support ended on May 12 2011, Server support continues until 2013. See !upgrade, !lts and !eol for more details.14:31
theShadow-good evening gentlemen14:32
ikoniajo__: that distro is end of life, are you %100 sure you want that one14:32
mneptokjo__: http://releases.ubuntu.com/8.04/14:32
mneptokikonia: 12 months left for server support.14:32
ikoniamneptok: true14:32
mneptokjo__: what ikonia said is 100% valid unless you are installing the server edition. and if you are, why not wait a couple weeks until the next LTS release drops?14:33
mi3can someone suggest how can I grep specific information from a website?14:33

theShadow-oh also14:36
jo__i would prefer a stable version too but i got old scripts =(14:36
theShadow-every guide i have found recommends using rEFIt14:36
mneptokjo__: i would not start building systems on a 4 year old release.14:36
theShadow-but as far as I know, it does not yet work with 10.714:36
theShadow-latest version of OSX14:37
theShadow-as far as I can tell, the reason for installing it is, if I install linux in a partition, my computer will automatically default to linux, instead of OSX14:38
theShadow-or something14:38
mneptoktheShadow-: i have no experience with Macs, but my Thinkpad with UEFI did not require rEFIt.14:39
theShadow-I will just install it14:39
theShadow-whats the worse that could happen, right? :p14:40
theShadow-ok next question14:40
mneptoktheShadow-: you should see a very small FAT32 or FAT partition on the disk. be sure to tell Linux to mount this at /boot/efi/14:40
jo__theShadow: just press alt at boot and you can choose your partition14:40
WLUhow can I tell what video driver is in use?14:40
theShadow-what format should I make the linux partition>14:41
theShadow-ok, can ubuntu reformat the partition to what it needs?14:42
auronandaceWLU: lspci will tell you what graphics card you have and lsmod will list the modules loaded14:42
auronandaceWLU: lspci | grep vga14:42
oCeanWLU: and lscpi -k will show the modules used for that device, for example   lspci -k |grep -i vga -A 314:43
auronandaceoCean: cool, i guess i was going the long way around :)14:43
jo__got it...thx to all who helped me. see you14:44

jattmi3: lynx -dump www.google.com | grep google14:48
=== butz is now known as blitz
mi3toobaz, means i need to download the website with wget, then use grep, right?14:49
jattnope, you can use lynx as I told you14:50
sacarlsonWLU: was nvidea working before gnome-shell?  I installed gnome-shell with nvidea and didn't require any changes14:50
toobazmi3: jatt's command works great fine if that's what you need14:50
toobaz(just "great")14:50
roastedQuestion - I was tinkering with Unison a little bit... is there a way to set custom flags for it, similar to rsync? -a, -t, etc?14:50

theShadow-why does ubuntu require 3 partitions15:10
ikoniait doesn't15:11
theShadow-is that a windows thing then?15:11
ikoniatheShadow-: what ?15:11
theShadow-it says in order to dual boot, it has to have 3 partitions15:11
theShadow-swap, root, and home15:12
ikoniano it doens't15:12
MonkeyDusttheShadow-  on that page, it is advised to have a separate /home partition15:12
ikoniayou only "need" root - you should probably have swap, and you can have /home on a seperate partition if you want to15:12
auronandacetheShadow-: only root is really required, but swap is recommended15:12
tretif you delete the ubuntu partition you won't be able to boot windows so it's prolly for boot15:12
ikoniayou can do it with one partition, however two is more realistic as swap is useful on it's own partition15:12
ikoniatret: that has nothing to do with it15:12
theShadow-can I create the swap partition later?15:13
MonkeyDusttheShadow-  you can disable it, with swapoff -a15:13
mneptoktheShadow-: if you leave unpartitioned space, yes. but then you'll have to activate it all manually.15:13
rebetheshadow make swap file it's more handy15:13
theShadow-at this point, I want to keep everything as simple as possible, just to get it working to make sure I didn't break anything15:13
mneptoktheShadow-: the simple approach is to create swap space during installation.15:14
bingomaniahey all DHCP question... I remember before when i use to run sudo apt-get install dhcp3-server it use to ask me setup questions (i.e. on what network interface should the dhcp server listen?)  How come it no longer asks these questions at install?15:14
MonkeyDusttheShadow-  then use swap, it's default and you don't have to find out how to disable it15:14
theShadow-would you recommend creating all of the partitions from the installer?\15:14
Urchinis there any way of disabling framebuffer in 10.04?15:14
e2xistzif I have 16gb ram, should I have swap?15:14
tretso if you do plan to remove ubuntu windows won15:14
bingomaniai'm trying to set up dhcp server and cant even start it prob cuzit doesnt know where to listen15:14
mneptoktheShadow-: hibernating/suspending that MacBook will require swap space15:14
tretso if you do plan to remove ubuntu windows won't boot unless you make a boot partition for grub15:14
bingomaniahow can i run the dhcp3-server initial configuration again?15:14
mneptoktret: untrue.15:15
auronandacetret: he is running a mac15:15
mneptoktret: remove Ubuntu, delete its partitions, run the MBR restore tool from Windows. done.15:15
theShadow-I had originally created the partition for window from OSX's disc utility15:16
e2xistzWhat's the name of this MBR restore tool?15:16
theShadow-er, for linux15:16
mneptoke2xistz: "fdisk /mbr" used to do it on NT3 and such15:17
* mneptok has not used Windows since the 1990s15:17
e2xistzmneptok: What about Windows 7?15:17
Egbert9s5my disk space went 0 and now i'm getting weird errors. it's something to do with the ecryptfs15:17
Egbert9s5what do i do?15:17
mneptoke2xistz: invent a time machine, bring a copy of Win7 back to 1996, and i might know.15:18
Sidewinder1e2xistz, I believe that it's accessed by booting the Windows Repair disk and selecting fix/repair MBR.15:18
e2xistzmneptok: I do have a time machine, but currently it's forward only. Here, now, you have a Win 7.15:18
mneptokEgbert9s5: boot the system from live media (CD or USB), mount the encrypted filespace and look at what's using what.15:18
theShadow-ok, take 215:18
Egbert9s5mneptok: what do you mean what's using what?15:19
MonkeyDustEgbert9s5  start here http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=156041115:19
e2xistzSidewinder1: Yes, bootrec.exe /fixmbr /fixboot, but can you use it without a boot disc?15:19
mneptokEgbert9s5: you say available space dropped to 0. what is using that space and reporting those inodes as in use?15:20
Egbert9s5mneptok: some files are now unreadable15:21
TorbenBetaHow can I write in a shell script (Bash) that the process shall be put on hold? Control plus c.15:21
Sidewinder1e2xistz, I'm not sure; like mneptok, I haven't used Win for a long time, also, never had to repair MBR, sorry.15:21
bunny69folks... i'm desperately trying to master vhosting... i know that there are so many docs and such... but still, vhosting gives me such a headache... perhaps someone could point me to a bullet proof solution? i just want to addd a vhost and forget about it instead of playing funny games with apache all the time15:21
bingomaniacan anyone help me get DHCP-SERVER started?15:22
bunny69e.g. i have 3 different domains on 3 vhosts right now... different IPs also, and now i added 4th vhost and out of the blue apache sends a visitor to same virtual dir for 2 of those 4 vhosts... why on earth is that?15:22
bingomaniait wont start... usually during the install when i have done this in the past it just asks questions like (what interface do you want to listen on_)  and this time it never did15:22
bunny69bingomania did you check logs?15:23
dlentzTorbenBeta, sleep?  Maybe ask in #bash15:23
bunny69is there anyone really good with hosting multiple sites on a single machine (few IPs) willing to help me out and give a bullet proof solution on vhosting?15:24
TorbenBetadlentz, thanks.15:25
bingomaniabunny69 how do i see the syslogs for the dhcp server... i looked in /var/log/ but i see nothing there for dhcp15:25
mneptokbunny69: the bullet-proof solution is understanding how apache2 does this. not someone understanding it for you.15:25
thedonvaughnbunny69: depends on your webserver.  Just use VirtualHost in apache after turning it on and it's pretty simple15:25
bunny69well that's what i'm doing15:25
mneptokbunny69: http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/vhosts/  <--- you understanding that yourself is the bullet-proof solution.15:25
bunny69i just added a new vhost... standard files in sites-enabled and sites-available... but out of the blue the same dir is used for TWO domains and i have NO idea why is that15:26
mneptokbunny69: because you copy/pasted15:26
bunny69i edited carefuly15:26
bunny69and so far it worked nicely for 3 domains15:26
bingomaniabunny69: i cant find any logs for dhcpd15:26
thedonvaughnbunny69: so each of hte domains has their own virtualhost directive and a different documentroot?15:27
bunny69yes sir15:27
atpa8aseems like ubuntu is 'Starting OpenSSH server' once for everty NIC or alias...15:27
bunny69and this is why i don't really understand why wouldn't it work... especially because it did work for 3 domains before15:28
atpa8ais that true?15:28
bunny69i triple checked DocumentRoot for that 4th domain and it is well defined15:28
bunny69and for some stupid reason it works but it also made some previous domain point to the same dir15:29

Fyodorovnaphil_phys, you have access to a ubuntu setup already, you probably need to use the nomodeset option, and unetbootin may not let you get to that option easily.15:57

shwaiilQ: any problem on having Ubuntu / win7 running together, not as VM. Wasn't there boot problems because of windows or something ? I need to have win in a new computer :P16:50
MonkeyDustshwaiil  did you install windows before or after ubuntu?16:51
phil_physIs better UNetbootin or usb creator??16:51
Fyodorovnashwaiil, if you have a standard mbr set up and it is a actual dualboot not a wubi it should be problem free.16:51
MonkeyDustphil_phys  depends on what you prefer16:51
shwaiilMonkeyDust: I didnt got the computer yet, but I'll start by installing ubuntu16:51
Fyodorovnaphil_phys, use usb creator.16:51
mcb_shwaiil: I have it herem, and i have no problems.... I installed windows7 first, because of the duum windows bootloader.16:51
shwaiilmcb its better to install win first then ?16:52
Fyodorovnaphil_phys, using the creator will alow a easy nomodeset if needed.16:52
mcb_shwaiil: It is easier, as the windows bootloader dont recognize Linux.16:52
MonkeyDustshwaiil  install windows first, for it will destroy GRUB if you install it second -- GRUB can be repaired but it's better not to16:52
shwaiilmcb, MonkeyDust so ubuntu installer will do that for me right ?16:53
Fyodorovnashwaiil, depends on your skills reloading the mbr if that is what your using is easy. If you have a choice instal lwindows first16:53
MonkeyDustshwaiil  windows recognizes only three OSs: windows, windows and windows16:53
mcb_shwaiil: Right about that.16:53
shwaiilFyodorovna: yeah, i'll isntall windows first, if ubuntu does that for me...I'm fine16:53
FyodorovnaMonkeyDust, please don't say repairing grub is a big deal kit can be purged reinstalled and do many things easily.16:54

TheSimkini think it does inventory too18:04
ghostconnim so upset lol I just switched from mint 12 to ubuntu 11:10 thinking I would be in for a world of a fun new OS... however I have had nothing but problems!!!!!! what did the developers do to ubuntu 11:10 it's like stripped down hardcore , weighted down with bogus software and pointless apps.. really bad compatibility. slow boot up, EXTREMELY slow shutdowns..... it's almost worse then windows now........18:04
ohswhat is the use of the following code "cp -R [DownloadDirectory]/mkspecs/qws/linux-arm-g++/ [DownloadDirectory]/mkspecs/qws/linux-DM3730-g++/"18:04
pwasekTheSimkin does it monitor hard drive life too18:05

* klync never found a good inventorying solution18:05

tuxbinguntbert: i dont know all optionsbut here are some "install" gives you a wizard like install "install from commandline" gives you no giu and just a text driven wizard18:17

oCeanguntbert: not exactly what you are looking for, but you could mount the mini.iso (-o loop) to see what actually happens in the various menuoptions18:22
guntbertblendedbychris: normally you don't need the complete desktop environment and for single programs you start ssh -X .... and then you invoke that program on the remote host (try it with xeyes  for a start)18:23

sacarlsonGuinness2702:  looks like that line might work,  maybe simplify it and see what happens.  if --to-destination is lo or I'm not sure that will work.  my simple example $IPTABLES -t nat -A PREROUTING -p tcp  -j DNAT --to-destination
Black-Opsnujabes. ha ha, i use it more often, for making customized ubuntu19:14

justdaveI'm on 10.10 attempting to upgrade it to 11.04 (and eventually 11.10), and it seems to have misdetected my monitor and is only offering me 480x320 as a resolution choice, which is too small to see the upgrade window and I can't click on the buttons because they're off-screen.  how do I force the resolution higher?19:17
Guinness2702sacarlson, the from destination are local - i.e. I'm running a browser on my desktop, and also squid on the desktop.  I want all packets that any process tries to send to port 80 to go via squid19:17
Guinness2702nibbler_, wouldn't that then mess up squid's outgoing, legitimate requests on port 80?19:18
Black-Opsis it en? :p19:18
Guinness2702nibbler_, also, come to think of it, does -o work with PREROUTING?19:18
nibbler_Guinness2702, -o eth0 -p tcp --dport 80 -d ! $SQUID19:19
nibbler_Guinness2702, no clue about prerouting, hardly ever used it19:19
nibbler_Guinness2702, but oyu might be right19:19
Guinness2702nibbler_, I might get away with it, as I use a proxy, so nothing should go out from squid directly to 80 lol :)19:20

pjsbeandog ahh, gotcha.. thx. sorry, BSD guy so my iptables stuff is way on the edge of my memory :)20:22

aibohi, how to store 'route add default gw' in my '/etc/network/interfaces' what's format?20:23
pjsbeandog, well all i need to do is allow port 80, so I'll stick with this for now. To lazy to save the rules, load them at startup, etc. :)20:24

pjsbeandog, yea.. ssh was already added via rackspace I suppose20:25
beandogpjs: well ufw will drop everything by default, so yah, better add that.20:25
beandogwell, maybe not *everything* ... but it'd drop ssh20:25

beandogYou can always get back in through rackspaces' web admin anyway, but that's a pain.20:25

pjsbeandog: yup. got 22.. thanks my man!20:28
beandogpjs: have fun20:28
beandogyou can use unset to remove the variable, too.  unset FOO; echo $FOO20:29
jahasorry maybe my lingo is wrong, lets say i want to set a variable with 1 bash script, and read that variable with another script20:29
beandogjaha: ah, good question.  I dunno, tbh.20:29
beandogjaha: you're usually better off passing variables as arguments, though20:29
beandogbash foo.sh 1 2 320:30
jahai understand export within the context of a single script, but normally I would write out the results to a file and read it in on the other, trying to get around that if possible20:30
beandoginstead of FOO=foo bash foo.sh20:30
beandogjaha: yah, don't write to a file.  You could pipe it20:30
beandogwell you *could* write to a file.20:30
beandogit's your script :)20:30
jahabeandog:  the scripts are independant of eachother,  one script setting foo=bar, and another script at will checking what the value of foo is...20:33
beandogjaha: okay.  Well, most shell commands / scripts will look for arguments, not variables20:34
beandogfoo --bar=baz20:34
beandogjaha: custom scripts of yours?20:34
beandogjaha: just out of curiosity, are you trying to split separate functions into two shell scripts?20:34
beandoglike, both scripts are just executing one function20:35

TheEmpathFrom my client, I run ssh -t user@host.com '/home/user/runTheNoHupScript.sh'... on the server, /home/user/runTheNoHupScript.sh is 'nohup whatever &'20:44

TheEmpathbut if i execute the command via ssh connection, the process doesn't remain active20:45
beandogI don't think running nohup inside a script is going to do it20:45

mobiusstripperhi, so I want to enable Chinese and Japanese interface for other user of the system. In the "Language Support" setting,,21:09
erinaceusveggteppe: try dmg2img -s -i input.file -o output.file21:09
mobiusstripperafter I installed the language support, I moved them between English (US) and English21:09
mobiusstripperbut when I log out and log back-in, the interface became Chinese.21:09
mobiusstripperShouldn't English (US) still takes highest pririty?21:10
veggteppeerinaceus, Tried that now, still having an inflation error21:10
cwoodmobiusstripper: Sounds like your system is set to one locale.21:10
cwoodAnd your system's default locale is different from your own.21:10
mobiusstrippercwood, when I typed locale in shell, I get LANG=en_US.UTF-821:10
erinaceusveggteppe: Broken dmg is out of question i guess?21:11
mobiusstripperso I am not sure why the interface is in Chinese..21:11
veggteppeerinaceus, Indeed, tried several different ones, hoping everyones not corrupted. lol ^;21:11
cwoodDo you have a bunch of LC_* environment variables? Maybe they're in your shell config scripts but not your xorg session configs (like your .xsession or whatever Ubuntu uses).21:11
veggteppeerinaceus, is there any way to burn a bootable .dmg "out of the box" of a program on linux ?21:11
erinaceusveggteppe: Sorry, thats out of my league. But im guessing you are trying to write the dmg on a disk?21:12
veggteppeerinaceus, Aye, attempting to write the dmg on a disk indeed21:12
veggteppeerinaceus, Gonna try to run it straight out of brasero, and see where that gets me with a hardboot on the mac21:13
beandogsammmy: was afk, any luck?21:13
mobiusstrippercwood, all the LC_ are en_US.UTF-821:13
mobiusstrippercwood, with quotation mark, I belive because their values are inherited from LANG21:13
mobiusstrippercwood, there is also this: LANGUAGE=en_US:en_GB:zh_HK:zh_TW:zh_CN:ja:en21:14
cwoodmobiusstripper: That's in a terminal, though.21:14
mobiusstrippercwood, how would I checked my LC* if not in the terminal?21:14
sammmybeandog: w/e I don't care21:14
cwoodNot really sure how locales work, but it seems that of the available locales your shell chooses en_us and your DE chooses zh.21:14

llew21 where the table contains one line:  0 819200 striped 2 32 /dev/hda 0 /dev/hdb 0 .The disks are 400Mb each. when I run this command it returns: Invalid format on line 1 of table21:46
