Nogalit's currently version 2.62-1, though you should be able to find an old .deb online if you need the older version.00:14
pfifoNogal, blender 2.62 is available in the software center on 12.04, but that version dosent support the features I need.00:14

Nogalah, that's a bit beyond me. I was looking into finding the old .deb00:16
Pictowith windows xp dont work slow00:16
stalkergPicto: you use opensource driver. And for old hardware driver is realy bad (r300g and r600g good)00:16

shapeHello, If I install a different Video Card on my system and change some RAM (i.e. change RAM sticks), will I have to reinstall Ubuntu or will there be no problems at all?00:22
Nogalshape: there shouldn't be any issues with that00:22
indianhello00:24
shapeNogal: when linux installs on the computer, does it load stuff into the kernel regarding the components that you have, or is it modular?00:24
indianI am getting this error when trying to load vmware00:24
indian Gtk-WARNING **: Unable to locate theme engine in module_path: "murrine",00:24

Nogalshape: i'm not positive with ubuntu, linux can be compiled both ways. I have not tried to change out my ubuntu machine, but I know other distros can be entirely modular.00:27
shapeNogal, so there is a change I might have to do a fresh install, correct?00:27
courtcommand to download flash player?00:27
lauratikaim looking to buy a netbook what you rekon for ubuntu?00:28
Nogalfor RAM and a videocard i highly doubt it, but I never rule out the unknown00:28
a_pen9uinhow could i update a computer running 11.04 to 12.04 the computer in question has no internet connection i just use it for games could i stick a 12.04 disk in and update like that?00:28
shapeNogal, right. I should be more worried if I had to change the CPU, correct?00:29
JaceAlvejettia_p3rson, should offer to upgrade when it sees the CD00:29
indianOk I got the gtk2-engines-murrine is already the newest version.00:29
fully_humanWhat is dcop? I somehow need it to run mythtv-setup.00:29
indianbut I am still getting the error00:29
Nogalyes, if you were changing the cpu or the motherboard i might think that you may run into an issue, but with your changes i really don't think you'll have any problem00:29
a_pen9uin@JaceAlvejetti thanks for the help will do00:30
Nogaldoes anyone know how to get a 12.04 liveCD with gParted?00:30
lauratikaany advice00:30
shapelauratika, Acer Aspire one seems to be the one that "just works". Ive researched this myself a while back and that;s what I could find.00:30

Nogallauratika: system76 makes a line of ubuntu preloaded computers... i'll find the lik00:31
Nogallink*00:31
shapeNogal, what do you mean? You want an Ubuntu with gparted on the live cd?00:31

L3topHow do I assign my default output to HDMI in gnome3 on 1204? Where/what is the default mixer to change settings?00:32
lauratikahow can i lighten up in yellow the name of users while replying in the chat?00:32
foobArrrshape: I think the default is not a targeted kernel, you should be ok. you can check /etc/initramfs-tools/initramfs.conf. if there is a "MODULES=most" in it, there kernel should not be hardware-specific. (please correct me, if I'm wrong)00:32
L3topAudio output that is00:33
DrecondiusPerhaps it should be noted that I'm trying to get 12.04 x64 running00:33
L3topI know in kubuntu it is kmixer00:33
shapeNogal, I just did the same thing, yet I just burned Gparted Live CD on a normal CD and did the partitioning and installed Ubuntu with a differend CD. Wouldn't that work?00:33
L3topwhat irc client are you using lauratika00:34
shapefoobArrr, Thanks! I can't correct you because that's way beyond my knowledge00:34
DrecondiusWould that make a difference as to why it will not boot?00:34
lauratikaopera's client00:34
foobArrrshape: that was addressed to the whole channel :)00:34
Nogalshape: sometimes i look for the hard way... thank you for pointing out my idiocy lmao00:34
L3toplauratika: I am not familiar with operas, but it should be in something like "settings/chat view"00:35
=== tensorpudding_ is now known as tensorpudding
foobArrrshape: if there is MODULES=dep instead of MODULES=most, you can change it to most and then run update-initramfs -u00:36
foobArrrbut no guarantees00:36
shapeNogal, but what is it that you're trying to do? Shink partitions?00:36
Nogalshape: yeah, just trying to shrink the XP partition down to about half her size and load 12.04 on the newly acquired free space.00:37
Nogalso the gp-liveCD should do the trick, followed by the ubuntu livecd for the actual install?00:37
shapefoobArrr, I will have to try that tomorrow since I don't have the computer right now. and of course Thanks for the info!00:37
gumby_52hello.  I'm wondering if someone could help me with setting up running Ubuntu on my TV.  It works fine on my small monitor but when I put it on my tv the display seems wrong.  I looked at the xorg.0.log and see that it does not like the frequency.00:38
sicklyhey can someone help me with removing unity? i tried sudo apt-get remove unity unity-2d, but its still there. I want it to be the old school way lol00:38
gumby_52looking for some help if someone is able to assist me... it would be apprecieated00:38
shapeNogal, yeah, go to do the Gparted site, download the latest Gparted LiveCD an burn it. Then boot from it, do the shrinking and then reboot with the Ubuntu Live CD.00:38
L3top1204, I can speaker-test -Dplug:hdmi and get audio over hdmi, however I do not believe the mixer is outputting on HDMI natively. What mixer would I set to default to this? I created an /etc/asound.conf, but on reload I still have no audio out unless I do that test.00:38
L3topgumby_52: do you have any adapters or anything in between the card and the tv? How is it connected?00:39
bazhang!notunity | sickly00:39
ubottusickly: 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 !classic00:39
Nogalsickly: i'm pretty sure they just released a gnome classic desktop manager for 12.0400:39
shapeNogal, There might be some Ubuntu distros that come with Gparted but the Gparted Live CD loads very fast, rather than waiting for the whole system to load from the Live CD.00:39
gumby_52I have the hdmi plugged into the tv from the nvidia card00:39
gumby_52just going into it's own input00:39
shapeNogal, if you are really cheap, and don't want to waste a CD, you could boot from the Ubuntu 12.04 live CD and then with an internet connection download Gparted and run it. It will all be done in RAM.00:40
L3topgumby_52: have you installed the proprietary drivers? and if so what options do you have in nvidia-settings?00:40
gumby_52I have installed the drivers00:40

L3top_ProtekNickz: system settings => sound => output and hardware only have "Built-in analog audio" as an option... I suppose I should try and change this in alsamixer f6?00:48

shapeNogal, what Ubuntu Live CD do you have?01:04
icerootwhy is "sudo cd ~" giving "unkown command cd"? if i am correct "cd" is coming directly from bash and is not an external program which needs to be in PATH01:05
jacekowskiiceroot: sudo is trying to execute binary called cd01:06
jacekowskiiceroot: and as it's internal shell command it can't do that01:07

caesar_can someone help me find and install a graphics driver?01:07
Nogali just loaded into gparted01:07
icerootjacekowski: ah ok and echo is working because its an builtin AND have a binary in PATH01:07
icerootjacekowski: so sudo echo is not using the bash echo01:08
foobArrr"sudo cd" doesn't make much sense at all, does it?01:08
Nogalshape: i just ran into an issue where maybe you can help me; the ntfs system i need to shrink doesn't seem to allow me to, it has a little "!" icon next to it.01:08
icerootfoobArrr: i inital goal was to see if sudo is expaning ~ to /root and so i tried cd01:08
jacekowskiit kinda does if you want to change cwd01:08
jacekowskiiceroot: it's shell expanding it01:09
jacekowskiiceroot: not sudo01:09
icerootjacekowski: but the question is when it is expanding, before sudo or after01:09
icerootjacekowski: sudo echo ~ is giving the userhome and not root01:09
jacekowskiit's not expanding it in this case01:09
icerootso if sudo knows about cd then sudo cd ~ would put me in my homedir and not /root/01:11
icerootbecause bash is expanding ~ before sudo is executed01:11

lorecasternot yet.01:12
icerootZaNeIuM: there is no package "me" in the ubuntu-repos01:12
shapeNogal, I wanted to say that I checked the Ubuntu packages website and booted from the 12.04 Live CD and Gparted is there. I just took it for granted when you told me the iso didnt have Gparted. Gparted comes with Precise 12.04. So you don't need to burn the Gparted Live CD and just boot from the Ubuntu Live CD and run Gparted from there.01:12
sicklyNogal, couldnt find anything on that any info on where i can find it?01:13

shapeNogal, Or if you don't want command line, in Windows, you right click on the drive - Properties -Tools and you have "error-checking" (check disk) there01:26
krababbelNogal: start/run/cmd elevated, hold ctrl,shift01:26
shapeNogal, and the second option is Defragmentation. Also, "Error- Checking" will orccur after you restart, if you have the system on it.01:26
krababbelNogal: in xp just click01:26
teskewdo i need to first unset the Super_R key in xmodmap?01:27
Nogal"chkdsk cannot run becasuse the volume is in use by another process."01:27
shapeNogal: do what I said01:27
Nogalsorry was turned away, i think i figured that part out01:28
shapeNogal, it will prompt you to restart. And then it should run chkdsk before loading windows. You cannot check the disk if the system is loaded from it.01:28
Nogalasked me to schedule chkdsk upon next restart01:28
shapeNogal, yes, that's it.01:28
Nogalsweet ok; running chkdsk /r (after the reboot)01:29
TheAlliedFleetIs there anyway to run photoshop CS6 or CS5 on wine, When I try my installation fails01:29
shapeNogal, And after that, do a Defragmentation, and then run chkdsk again01:29
Nogaljust plain chkdsk or should I append /r?01:30
shapeNogal, run chkdsk /r the first time, then defragment, then just normal chkdsk and see how Gparted sees the partition after. If not run chkdsk /r and try gparted again.01:31
Nogalshape: tyvm. it looks like this is going to take a while; I'm going to step outside for a deathstick real quick.01:33
shapeNogal, chkdsk /r finds bad sectors01:33
shapeNogal so it will take a long time, that's why the second time I said not to run the /r01:33
shapeNogal, because the first run of "chkdsk /r" should find the bad sectors01:34
shapeNogal, I have to go. Good luck!01:34
nmatrix9Hey guys when I was trying to install my new ubuntu setup accidentally wiped out the partition on a external 1 terabyte drive.  Now I've done something similar before a windows machine years ago, and I was able to still retrieve the data from a formatted partition with a propietary windows tool.  Is there something similar on linux or ubuntu?01:35

pfifomy cromium-browser is not using pulse audio, how can I get it using pulse instead of alsa directly?02:24

pfifobandit5432, well #1 no sound, and #2 the error on the command line, and #3, its not showing up in pavucontrol02:26
bandit5432pfifo, wierd02:26
Nogalpfifo: try pavucontrol02:26
Tynach_ProtekNickz: That appears to be correct. I see the two virtual machines and all their intended settings intact in those XML files. I also see some network and other XML files; I'm going to back up all of this, but use it more as a guideline for recreating things (they may have new defaults, and those new defaults might be better). Thank you!02:26
pfifoNogal, it doesnt show up in the controls02:26

'Nuff said.02:33
TynachIn fact, he said it ran faster on Ubuntu than it did on Windows (on that laptop). So I consider that a success story.02:34

cheese1756Does anyone know of a package along the lines of pulseaudio-alsa? Something I can use to port alsa calls through pulseaudio?02:38
escottAreckx, "mount" will tell you want the mountpoint is02:38
bandit5432pfifo,  you can also edit a couple of files in /etc/adobe but that fix did not work for me02:38
Sheldon420Areckx, Maybe it's tired.  Try a different position.  I'd recommend the cowgirl.02:39
escottcheese1756, I would imagine that the alsa emulation is included as part of the standard pulseaudio package02:39

TynachHey, I've not yet tested it, but on Ubuntu 12.04 with the nouveau driver, do windows using the 'Normal' resize method resize properly (with Compiz)?02:41

linuxjoneshow do i get to a log screen where i can see why my installs of 12.04 keep crashing?02:42
escottcheese1756, sorry thought you were the person from earlier who had trouble with chromium. what makes you think the pulse alsa layer is not working02:42
TynachOh, is pfifo getting that darn smurphing?02:42
pfifobandit5432, never mind, I got it with tab key, arrows and the spacebar02:42
_ProtekNickzlinuxjones: What are you doing when it crashes?02:42
TynachNogal: When I say resizing with 'Normal' method, I mean when the window redraws itself as you resize it from a corner. This is not the default behavior on Ubuntu because nVidia proprietary drivers cannot handle it properly. It works TERRIBLY.02:43
pfifoTynach, yeah, but its gone now, thanks again bandit543202:43

I don't remember what I did to make it work, but there are two types of profiles: Profiles that only work inside graphics applications (like Gimp and Scribus), and profiles that have enough data for use on the entire screen.02:57
_ProtekNickzTynach: well i'm comfotable with KDE quite nice i like it, Gnome to me seemed basic, but i aint used it in a while02:57
TynachEr, that's supposed to go to bandit5432.02:57
TynachSorry _ProtekNickz.02:57
escottpsych and that gives you no errors? but tune2fs -l /dev/sdb1 shows what?02:58
escottcheese1756, start with ldd `which winecfg` | grep alsa02:58
Tynach_ProtekNickz: I use both KDE and Gnome, depending on mood. I prefer KDE overall, but Unity conserves vertical screen space better; so I end up using that most of the time.02:58

isoscelesrectangHi. I've got a Magic Trackpad that I want to try multitouch with. I know Magic Trackpad support is officially included in Quetzal, but is there any way to get it working in Pangolin right now?02:59
_ProtekNickzTynach: bandit5432: I'm actually back on linux now, of an on for a few years, why i was bouncing i dunno, Stating with linux now, put it on wifes laptop too, works wounders, even when i was using it back in the 90's :)03:00
escottpsych, so your problem is that the reserved block count is zero, but the free blocks is less than the block count03:00
cheese1756escott: Thanks. I'll look into this more tomorrow. Thank you for your help03:01
Tynachisoscelesrectang: I'm not sure what you mean by Magic Trackpad, but if you mean a laptop mousepad that uses multitouch gestures, yes you can use it in Ubuntu. Go to the mouse settings, there should be a tab for a mouse trackpad or something like that. In it it has options for 'two finger scrolling'. I believe there are options in Compiz for doing gestures with multiple fingers, I don't know though. My laptop trackpad doesn't support it :(03:01
isoscelesrectangTynach: Sorry, I meant an Apple Magic Trackpad.03:01
Tynachisoscelesrectang: I have no idea then. I have never and probably never will buy anything from Apple.03:01
_ProtekNickzApple - lol, NC03:02
psychescott, I'm not sure. It still says 28 GB used in df -h. But yeah, free blocks is less than block counts03:02
isoscelesrectangTynach: Haha understandably so.03:02
psychI just don't want 28 GB used03:02
Tynach_ProtekNickz: My first encounter with Linux was when my mobo went bad, and Windows refused to recognize the new one as the same computer. So I had to install something else, and that was... Debian 4, I believe. Dad gave me a stack of all 13 CDs and told me to have fun.03:03

Tynach_ProtekNickz: oh you bet! I reinstalled my system about 10 times a day, for weeks! My dad didn't let me have Internet at the time (I was what... 13?), so I had to use only the CDs. But I had an ATi graphics card, and could not get the screen resolution quite right... So I ended up messing with xorg.conf and screwing the system up (I thought no GUI meant the system was corrupt and I had to reinstall).03:05

escottpsych, im not sure. thats very strange.03:11
psychescott, should I perhaps repartition? Do you know if there's a way to select block size reserve space in parted or something03:12
psychI'm doing this headless, unfortunately, so no gui for me03:12
escottpsych, to be honest i would just leave it at 5%. if you actually start using more than 95% of the filesystem thats not good and you need to get more storage03:12
psychAlright, I appreciate it03:13
escottpsych, so in some ways that 5% buffer is only preventing you from doing something you probably wouldn't want to do anyways03:13
psychhaha that's true03:13
psychI guess it's there for a reason, 28 GB just seems like a lot to not be able to have access to03:14
escottpsych, if its really empty you could just rerun mkfs with the correct options03:14
lazikI tried starcraft 2 with wine, it lagged too much. Anyone tried running Win7 in a Vmware workstation to play sc2?03:14
psychescott, that's what I'm looking at doing.03:14
bandit5432you can chenge the percentage03:14
psychI've got nothing to lose.03:14
ZaNeIuManyone have an ion-2 mb with working sound out hdmi that can give me some help03:14
escottpsych, it helps prevent fragmentation. 28Gb may be bigger than necessary, but there is no guarantee that those 28GB will be contiguous so 5% isn't crazy03:15
bandit5432escott, sudo tune2fs -m 0 /dev/sd** to put the percent to 0 change sd**03:15
escottbandit5432, yeah he did that, but it didnt take effect03:15
bandit5432what fs are you using?03:16

xixoryo, just installed 12.04.  In unity, how does one run a terminal?  I want to install and use lubuntu-desktop03:17
escottbandit5432, to be more specific it shows as 0 in tune2fs -l, but the space is reserved in df -h03:17
Nogalxixor: ctrl+alt+t03:17
psychescott, bandit5432 I ran  sudo mkfs.ext4 -m 0 /dev/sdb103:18
psych just to fool around and it shows the same thing03:18
Tynachxixor: you can also just go to the Unity menu and type in 'terminal', and that will bring you to a terminal.03:18
krababbel_lazik: it won't be faster surely03:18
xixorTynach: ah, I see.. the unity menu is "dash home" ?03:18
psych-m is the switch for reserved block percentage in ext403:18

bandit5432tune2fs -r 0 /dev/sdxX ??03:18

xixorTynach: yeah, fresh install, default ubuntu desktop.  I've never tried unity, so wanted to give it ago, but my computer is pretty underpowered, it is a laptop from 2005 (thinkpad x60), so it is a little sluggish, and I want to give the lbuntu desktop a try03:20
catball32Can't purchase through software center.  Throws 3DSecure error, whatever that is.03:22
Tynachxixor: have you tried Ubuntu 2D? In the login menu, you can choose to do a 2D version of Unity.03:22
psychGood find bandit543203:22
xixorTynach: no, I haven't.  I have it set to auto-login, so I don't see that menu03:22
psychThat might be what I'm running into here.03:23
Tynachxixor: Ah, well, try logging out and then going in from there. I believe that sets the default to 2D as well :)03:23
TynachYou click on the 'gear' icon to choose what desktop environment you go into.03:23
bandit5432psych, and you got me to go look at my own fs as well03:23
TynachInstalling lubuntu-desktop would have the same problem for you; you'd have to log out and back in to the new environment anyway.03:23
xixorTynach: ok, thanks, will give it ago, the installation of lubuntu-desktop is just finished, going to give xmonad a try as well03:24
bandit5432psych, nope just ran it on one of my partitions and it change from 26 to 46 free space03:24

That said, don't use a lot of Java in the real world; learn C++ after that.03:31
psychbandit5432, I guess it might. I just saw another thread in the server section that specifically mentioned 28 GB on a disk that is 2 TB and that was because of these blocks. Also, how come free space doesn't increase when set to 003:31

pilotbubJava is a good way to compromise systems03:32
bandit5432psych, part of that is for your journal03:32
psychAh well03:34
bandit5432psych, its why when you format a drive its always smaller than the purchase price03:34
psychI always thought that was due to the difference between GB and GiB or something03:35

bandit5432psych, ie A small percentage of the drive's available space is used to store filesystem-related data and can be considered as overhead.03:37

bandit5432psych, see http://serverfault.com/questions/282317/disk-space-overhead-in-ext403:38
celthunderlewis: it is friday....03:39
bandit5432psych, With the default options, every 128mb of disk gets 2 mb ( 8192 x 256 bytes each ) of inodes, or 1.6% overhead. so 2tb would = 32 gigs of overhead03:39
psychbandit5432, I saw that just now. I think we're getting a little over my head with talk of inodes and stuff :)03:40
bandit5432psych, its how all formating works linux windows etc03:40
bandit5432psych,  you loose disk space when you format03:41
escottbandit5432, how does that work with extents? shouldn't the inode allocation be deferred until the extents are known?03:41
bandit5432escott, i dont know what that means03:42
psychIt.. appears to be so. If I can trust wikipedia here :P03:43
=== me is now known as Guest23601
bandit5432escott, extents is the default behavior of ext403:44
escottbandit5432, i always thought that inodes were layed out on disk as needed and not preallocated onto the disk. and since ext4 has extents (large contiguous blocks for a file) I would think the layout would have to be deferred until data is ready to be put on the disk03:44
bandit5432that does not change the disk overhead when you mkfs03:44

jiffe1so I'm trying to iscsi boot ubuntu 12.04, my bios supports iscsi so I exported a disk I have ubuntu installed on via iscsi and I see it boot, it gets past grub, I see it load ethernet and usb, but then it says 'Gave up waiting for root device', any idea how I might resolve this?04:11
lewisjiffe1: run the install disk check your dev location and modify your grub menu list settings under gksudo auth04:15
escottjiffe1, you might need to do something to get iscsi supported inside the initrd04:16
escottjiffe1, the bios support for iscsi boot support is stops when grub takes over. it guarantees that grub is started and that grub sees the partitions on that device as the standard ide1 disk, but once the initrd is loaded into memory and the kernel started its up to the kernel to go find that device again04:17

I have followed the steps, however once i get to step 4, i dont see anything listed. must the hardware be connected in order to install drivers for it?04:18

ubottuCoded1: A common kernel (boot)parameter is nomodeset, which is needed for some graphic cards that otherwise boot into a black screen or show corrupted splash screen. See http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1613132 on how to use this parameter04:44
OptichipCoded1: did you do a nomodeset04:44
ConradzzI logged on and the window came up saying I had updates, so I hit ok04:44
dr_willisConradzz:  so lightdm loads and you can enter name/pass and login but it freexes  as your users desktop is staring? or does lightdm also freeze?04:45
lewissad to say but i had something like this happen to me in ub 904:45
L3topCoded1: assuming nomodeset doesn't work you should be able to force-vesa... but what I expect you really want to do is install the proprietary drivers for that gpu.04:46
Conradzznot sure what you mean by lightdm, but I get to the login screen, and don't even get to type my password04:46
dr_willislogin screen is lightdm04:46
menturilewis: strangely, after searching all of those, nothing came up for any of them. (I apologize for my newbieness; I feel helpless by myself with this problem, and am pretty new to ubuntu & linux in general).04:46

dr_willisi rarely even try the dvd.  Not much need for it ffor most people04:49
Hoytokay04:49
Conradzzdropped into root if I run startx it gives me a fatal server error, do I need to mount the file system first?04:50
dr_willisi recall ages ago a project to make an unofficial 'extra packages' cd for ubuntu with a lot of the extra drivers and so forth on it.04:50
dr_willisConradzz:  this is why i normalluy try 'text' mode first. no need to mount stuff.. its a normal bootup. just no X starting04:51
lewisconradzz: the filesystem should have been mounted on login04:52
dr_willis!text04:52
ubottuTo start your system in text-only mode append 'text' (without the quotes) to the kernel line in the grub menu. You can access the grub menu by pressing Esc (Grub legacy) or Shift (Grub2) during boot. For more info see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BootOptions#Text%20Mode04:52

ConradzzI start my computer, select the ubuntu partition04:52
lewisconradzz: what i did in the pass was reinstall ubuntu-desktop04:52

cousin_luigiAnything more reliable than indicator-updatemanager?07:13
ST3ELHi, I'm running Ubuntu 12.04. My computer is randomly restarting has anyone else heard of or experienced this problem?07:14
lotuspsychjeST3EL:anything shows up in /var/log?07:15
wilfredorkrababbel: thanks07:16
wilfredorI finded that but i cant understand http://lxr.free-electrons.com/source/drivers/media/rc/keymaps/rc-genius-tvgo-a11mce.c07:16
krababbelwilfredor: look if there is a linux driver for it07:17
ST3ELlotuspsychje: I'm not exactly sure07:18
wilfredorkrababbel: maybe http://lxr.free-electrons.com/source/drivers/media/video/saa7134/07:18
wilfredorkrababbel: how compile that and how run this module?07:18
krababbelwilfredor: you probabaly already have it, look at www.linuxtv.org07:19
Orpheoncan someone help me get opengl 32-bit?07:20
Orpheonwine needs it, and can't recognize opengl07:20
wilee-nileelinuxjones, Honestly I'm not real familiar with wubi, you might try the Ubuntu Formus as well, help is just a little sparse in general for a wubi set up.07:20
Orpheoneven though 63-bit opengl works07:20
Orpheon*6407:20
Kyle6513Howdy guys, anyone willing to help me get a USB scanner and sane working on an ubuntu server?07:21
Kyle6513I'm currently having problems getting the modules at all and I'm not entirely sure how to do it, i'm looking for usbfs and usbdevfs.07:22
virparawhy sudo apt-get install does not ask for password, from which group i should remove member?07:23
icerootvirpara: because sudo is caching the last password for some time07:24
alankilaKyle6513: additional complication: usb devices do not necessarily have kernel modules07:24
alankilasure, there's *something* to expose the device to libusb, but after that it's all userspace07:24
Kyle6513alankila, I'm trying to follow this tutorial, http://tldp.org/HOWTO/Scanner-HOWTO/interfaces.html07:25
Kyle6513I know my scanner is supported by Sane, it has it's own drivers but it's not picking it up, so I'm assuming it's something between the hardware and sane somewhere.07:25
lotuspsychjekyle6513:vuescan has a linux version, it supports many scanner07:26
Kyle6513lotuspsychje, the main thing I want is the backend, I'm trying to setup a networked printer.07:27
alankilaI wrote one userspace usb driver recently, it was an interesting exercise if nothing else07:27
Kyle6513alankila, I'm not entirely sure what you mean by the term userspace.07:27
alankilaKyle6513: as opposed to kernel.07:28
arulmozhihow cud I compile a linux device driver module. it seems the older examples won't compile on new kernel...07:28
virparaiceroot >> it does not ask even if i have just restarted07:29
Kyle6513alankila, if there are drivers for sane, that's all I essentially need. It's enabled in sane and yet I can't get it to work, I'm not entirely sure where along the line it's failing.07:29
alankilaanyway my program is a java program that opens the usb device and talks its protocol directly to it. I was able to get it to work simultaneously on linux, os x and windows (although I have not tested it on linux)07:29
icerootvirpara: you edit the sudoers file? with something like NOPASSWORD?07:30
virparaiceroot >> nope07:30
alankilaKyle6513: well what scanner is it07:30
virparaiceroot >>  isn't it because of the group thing07:30
Kyle6513alankila, it's a multi-printer Canon MP150. http://www.sane-project.org/cgi-bin/driver.pl?manu=canon&model=mp150&bus=any&v=&p=07:31
icerootvirpara: normally its the group "admin" but that is still asking for a password07:31
lotuspsychjeKyle6513:did you install sane extras from synaptic?07:31
alankilaKyle6513: so you need pixma backend07:31
icerootvirpara: have a look with "id" about the groups07:31
alankilawell, dunno, some links are ancient, like refer to dates in 200707:31
Kyle6513lotuspsychje, the backends are included in the latest tarball.07:32
Kyle6513lotuspsychje, which I compiled myself first, then attempted to use the ubuntu repository.07:33
lotuspsychjeoh07:33
exalthello every time i boot from my harddisk is see "bootmanager missing press cntrl alt del to reboot" what is fastest way to fix ?07:33
Kyle6513Like I said earlier, it seems that it requires the two modules usbfs and usbdevfs to communicate with the scanner properly.07:34
virparaiceroot >> to list the groups i am member of?07:34
Kyle6513both of which aren't loaded or in the kernel at all, I've never compiled a kernel before myself and I'm still not entirely sure if I need to include it into the kernel.07:34
virparahow to iceroot07:34
icerootvirpara: id07:35
arulmozhiagain how cud I compile a linux device driver module. it seems the older examples won't compile on new kernel... my kernel version is 3.2 rev 2007:35
alankilaKyle6513: based on this, you shouldn't need to do anything for this to work -- sane-pixma manpage promises that usb devices should be detected automatically.07:35
virparaiceroot >> 100307:35
alankilaKyle6513: I assume if a program such as "lsusb" works, then canon-pixma is also able to see it07:35
alankilatalk about usb filesystems may be dated -- I haven't personally paid attention how this stuff works for a long time07:36
Kyle6513alankila, yeah it's detected in lsusb, I just can't get it to detect, no matter what.07:36
=== Chin is now known as Chin_
Kyle6513it's even listed in the lsusb as a mp150 scanner, not a printer.07:36
alankilaKyle6513: well, I think these usbdevfs and stuff like that is long gone07:36
Kyle6513alankila, one thing I haven't tried is to reset the printer, I'll try that.07:37
Kyle6513alankila, still doesn't connect :/07:38
xiangzhenhey07:39
xiangzhenwho is on?07:39
alankilaKyle6513: a quick scan of the source code indicates that sane-pixma driver is based on libusb07:39
Kyle6513alankila, so, it should work :I07:40
alankilaso I guess you just haven't configured sane correctly or something. Maybe never told sane that you have a pixma-based scanner07:40
alankilaI don't remember how you configure sane07:40
xiangzhenhow can i remove the unity bar?07:40
Kyle6513xiangzhen, in login screen, drop down box > classic ubuntu07:40
alankilasane-find-scanner is supposedly the command, maybe it does something07:40
Kyle6513alankila, yeah that's what I07:41
Kyle6513alankila, have been using, but it returns nothing.07:41
alankilaokay. just tried it against my own scanner and it says: found USB scanner (vendor=0x03f0 [HP], product=0x5611 [Photosmart C3100 series]) at libusb:001:00507:42
alankilatried to "sudo" the command yet?07:42
alankilalike maybe it doesn't have the privilege for the userspace access to usb or something.07:42
alankilaapparently the device files are /dev/bus/usb/<digits>/<digits> nowadays07:43
Kyle6513alankila, yeah I tried and still doesn't work07:43
alankilahm. Fair enough. I'm out of ideas, then.07:44
Kyle6513alankila, perhaps it doesn't know about the change of dev locations, I might be able to make a temporary system link to /proc/bus/usb ?07:45
whoamiii got this problem07:45
alankilaKyle6513: nah, that's almost certainly not it07:45
alankilaKyle6513: lsusb uses libusb, sane uses libusb. They know where the files are. Use strace -e open to prove it, if you want07:45
whoamiiwhen i startup my ubuntu the whole windows turn back to those windows95 theme ?07:45
alankilayou should see sane-find-scanner open ton of usb files07:45
boumaim trying to repair grub with a system drive with both ubuntu1204 and win7, after installing win7 it has installed its own bootloader. how can i rebuild the grub menu with the livecd?07:46
Kyle6513actually alankila07:46
Kyle6513alankila, it never opens any usb devices07:46
alankilareally? Well, that's funny.07:47
Kyle6513alankila, nevermind, it does. I missed the one line.07:47
Kyle6513alankila, it looks in /dev/usb though, not /dev/bus/usb07:47
alankilaKyle6513: and ... well, is /dev/usb a valid place to look for them07:47
Kyle6513alankila, uh, well, the only file in /dev/usb/ is a file named 1p0, it's yellow in terminal.07:49
alankilamine never look into /dev/usb07:49
Kyle6513alankila, where does yours look?07:49
alankilano such file or directory07:49
alankilaI guess we aren't on same version of ubuntu server maybe.07:49
Kyle6513alankila, running 10.04.07:49
alankilayeh, 12.0407:50
Kyle6513so I take it I'll have to update?07:50
alankilaanyway it might still be alright -- although now there's the added complexity of discovering if the pixma driver supported your scanner around 201007:50
Kyle6513alankila, it was first supported in 2009.07:51
arulmozhiagain how cud I compile a linux device driver module. it seems the older examples won't compile on new kernel... my kernel version is 3.2 rev 20... how to include and what are  the  headers required07:51
Kyle6513alankila, http://mp610.blogspot.com.au/07:51
alankilaKyle6513: that cuts it uncomfortably close07:51
Kyle6513alankila, actually nevermind, that was the wrong post.07:51
boumawhen i try grub-install /dev/sda i get  error: cannot find a device for /boot/grub (is /dev mounted?).07:53
boumaim not sure why07:53
alankilaarulmozhi: typically you have to do the investigative work to port it, or look for a person who already did that work. That's just how it is. If nobody has done it, and the device you need driver for is popular, chances are there's some new solution which everybody else flocked to07:54
Kyle6513bouma, are you running as root?07:54
boumaKyle6513: that is with sudo grub-install /dev/sda, from a livecd07:55
Kyle6513hmm07:55
Kyle6513well, I was just throwing that out there, I'm not too knowledgable.07:55
krababbelbouma: tried 'purge and reinstall grub 2' thread in ubuntu forums?07:55
alankilaI once wrote a linux kernel driver for a piece of hardware which I had and I don't think it ever worked across more than 1 or 2 minor revisions without needing patching07:56
alankilathe kernel internals are crazy unstable07:56
boumathere is some issue with the chroot in the livecd, from what i can tell it is an intermitent bug, but it surprising it would exisit with 120407:56
alankilathey move headers, remove arguments, change types, rename defines, barf.07:56
arulmozhialankila: I don get it. I'm designing an instrument and I need to write my own driver for it. I just need the generic structure of driver code i.e a skull that I cud use for my driver that compiles in new linux version. from wat u said how do I port it. I'm just sarting with driver development. I read LDD book. but samples don't compile07:58
boumai dont have a separate boot partition07:58
alankilaarulmozhi: I was fortunate to have someone else's working driver as base when I did it.07:59
boumai almost want to just reinstall over the top of the current install07:59
boumawill this break things?07:59
boumathere isnt much on /home07:59
alankilabouma: your old fs will be formatted over most likely08:00
Kyle6513alankila, http://support-au.canon.com.au/contents/AU/EN/0100303302.html would that be of any help to me?08:00
isabelhi, my internal mic is not working after a  12.04 install, please help :-[08:00
alankilaKyle6513: not a psychic, don't know08:01
alankilaall I see is ton of legalese08:01
arulmozhialankila: any idea how to port it??08:01
Kyle6513alankila, it's basically canon's released source for their scanning drivers08:01
alankilaarulmozhi: not really. I guess you just do it :-p08:01
isabelhi, my internal mic is not working after a  12.04 install, please help :-[08:02
arulmozhialankila: thanx for ur time :)08:03
alankilaKyle6513: I dunno. If it covers the MP 150 you have then maybe there's some use to be had from it. But I don't think manufacturer drivers are any good for long08:03
boumaalankila: thats the idea08:03
alankilalinux just changes too fast for them to work for longer than like half a year08:03
Kyle6513alankila, alright, I'll just try and follow an old guide x.x08:04
Mischinkacommand line, how do i zip multiple files into one zip archive? zip -r zipfile.zip /directory/08:04
boumaalankila: i cant figure out how to just get grub-install /dev/sda to run08:04
alankilabouma: the sda is your harddisk? has filesystems on it? one of them contains /boot?08:04
alankilaanyway I normally mount /dev/sda1 /somewhere, then chroot, then mount /dev, /sys and /proc, then run grub-install /dev/sda, then reverse my steps08:05
krababbelbouma: got the same error once, i think i just reinstalled, but erased all08:05
boumaalankila: there is no boot, just one linux partition sda1, and sd2 is the win7 boot partition, sd3 win7system08:05
alankilabouma: right so /dev/sda1 contains the directory called /boot/grub then.08:06
boumahmm perhaps if i change the active partion to sda1 it will just work08:06
boumaalankila: yes08:06
alankilabouma: so mount it, chroot to it, then mount /sys, /proc and /dev, then try grub-install08:07
boumaalankila: sigh i thought i could just run grub-install /dev/sda from the term on a livecd08:07
alankilabouma: not sure if that should work. It is conceivable it could.08:08
boumaim first trying my changing sda2 active to sda108:08
alankilabut as far as I remember it never has worked.08:08
boumawhich win7 installer seemed to change08:08
alankilaso the problem is you boot directly to windows... grub should have been installed on the mbr, and I imagine win7 overwrote that08:08
boumaalankila: really... im sure ive used it before i thought it just scanned the drive and regenerated a whole boot menu with every detected kernel, rescue modes and entries for all detected operating systems08:09
alankilabouma: that is update-grub08:09
alankilait just generates the grub config08:09
alankilaif you lost capability to boot into grub the first place, then you need to actually reinstall it08:09
boumaalankila: ok, well update-grub /dev/sda doesnt work either it gives, /usr/sbin/grub-probe: error: cannot find a device for / (is /dev mounted?).08:10
alankilaI never install two operating systems on the same drive myself08:10
bouma(thats sudo update-grub /dev/sda)08:10
boumawell i only have one ssd08:10

wilee-nileebouma, update-grub on the live cd only works with a chroot if that is where you are running it.08:13

ankiti was asked to uninstall gnome and gnome shell..i unstalled gnome desktop environment first,when i got forward to uninstall gnome shell.. it was already uninstalled.. then i restarted my sys.. installed gnome D.E. again.. and faced the same prob08:35
omeI have X11 installed, obviously, but I can't seem to have the Mouse(4) man page.08:35
omewhat package should I install ?08:36
Ofortunawell I bet u are good at writing shell scripts and thats where my learning curve is taking me so as soon as I get by this nomodeset peramiter issue I'll prolly be here alot more.08:37
DarwinSurvivorankit: that's because you are back to where you started. you uninstalled both but were only supposed to uninstall gnome. you were supposed to *install* gnome shell08:38
OfortunaNot good for a recovering IRC addict lol08:38
TaddleI never got the end of my answer yesterday. I can't make mysql work08:38
DarwinSurvivorankit: if you just open software center, find "gnome shell" and install it, it should resolve your problem :)08:38
ankitokay darwin..08:39
DarwinSurvivorTaddle: if you are continuing a previous issue, please re-post the issue as the person that was helping you probably isn't here right now and may have forgotten what the issue was by now anyways08:39
TaddleYeah, I know08:39
ankiti will now uninstall gnome d.e. and install only gnome shell.. thats right naa08:39

linuxuz3rhey guys we need 3d acceleration for gnomeshell right?08:40
DarwinSurvivorlinuxuz3r: only if you want it to be fast :P08:42
Taddle(I think) I've fixed it. MySql wasn't starting and couldn't do any testing because of the socket not connecting, but I think I was running the xampp mysql server08:42
votproductionslinuxuz3r: Not for a Pentium 408:42

isabelMikey^: where would i find the multimedia selector?08:50
TaddleI've never managed an Ubuntu server. The companies are not at risk, I've always worked with an older person (15) who knows everything, I was just a "maintanence admin"08:51
Mikey^isabel: search for multimedia in the search bar08:51
ikoniaTaddle: the companies are at risk08:51
ikoniaTaddle: if you have zero idea how to manage a linux server and you are running a companies web site - that is an unacceptable risk08:51
DarwinSurvivorTaddle: ikonia is right, linux starts and stops services VERY differently than windows, there are also lots of other differences (particularly case-sensitivity and file permission) differences that are VERY important to understand08:51
ikoniaTaddle: read https://help.ubuntu.com08:51
TaddleI do not have 0 knowledge08:51
ikoniaTaddle: you do, as you can't start a basic service08:51
ikoniaTaddle: that is an unacceptable risk08:52
TaddleThat is started with the cpanel on every server I've worked on?08:52
ikoniaTaddle: then you have no knowledge of what cpannel is doing for you08:52
Mikey^Shanth: Is this a laptop or desktop?08:52

dr_willisreading is good08:54
Mikey^isabel: and then go to recording08:55
DarwinSurvivorTaddle: as some one who has been in your shoes years ago (came from xampp, went to linux). The best thing you can do is set up an ubuntu-server machine (old PIII or something simple) and forget EVERYTHING you knew about windows servers (PHP is basically the same though).08:55
TaddleAnd for the record, all the business servers I've worked on, have been supported by a bigger company. The companies were not for profits08:55
kris021Hi I would like some help with some password change/recovery type situation please08:55
isabelMikey^: There is only a input tab no recording?08:55
ikoniaTaddle: just because they are non-proffit companies doesn't make it acceptable08:55
Mikey^isabel: yeah, ok08:55
ikoniaTaddle: in some ways it makes it worse as they don't have money to waste08:55
TaddleThey weren't wasting money?08:55
Mikey^isabel: check that its unmuted and volume is up08:56
isabelMikey^: ok, i am there08:56
TaddleEverything was donated to them08:56
DarwinSurvivorTaddle: get that server up and running with a small site using mysql and keep it updating and running for a month solid. at that point, start looking at iptables. once you have that figured out (and get someone on a support channel to look over it with you), then consider forwarding a few ports (http, ssh) from the router08:56
ikoniaTaddle: they are wasting money/time if they have to fix your learning mistakes08:56
DarwinSurvivorTaddle: also, *always* use ssh (ftp is insecure) and *always* use public/private keys. turn off password login completely (help.ubuntu.com will tell you how)08:56
TaddleDarwinSurvivor, thanks. I've been through this before, I was just having problems recently08:57
isabelMikey^: Mic is not muted, for internal mic and normal mic08:57
Taddleikonia, the people who donate fix things for free08:57
ikoniaTaddle: that is still their time/money/effort they are wasting08:57
ikoniaanyway, I digress08:57
Mikey^isabel: you need to choose which mic you want to use08:57
ikoniaTaddle: I've given you the URL to read, good luck with understanding/absorbing it08:57
isabelMikey^:ok08:57
kris021I couldn't seem to log in to my original Admin account, so I created another under the Guest account, deleted the original and never the new one a password. Now I don't have any type of root access to try again. Is there some type of default password?08:58
Mikey^isabel: do you see a capture tab?08:58
DarwinSurvivorTaddle: I'm not joking about the "forget everything you knew" part. follow *every* step for setting up each service (apach, mysql, ssh, etc) from the guide. if something seems strange, ask a linux admin about it08:58
ikoniakris021: no, nothing default08:58
Taddlewhat was wrong with how I started mysql anyways? It works?08:58
isabelMikey^: no there is no capture tab08:58
kris021So I'm screwed?08:58
ikoniaTaddle: you've launched the daemon directly as root, you've not put any shell job control in (not using an init script)08:59
Mikey^isabel: choose preferences and then select all the checkboxes08:59
TaddleWhat makes that a problem? (This is for my learning btw)08:59
isabelMikey^: just output, input, Sound effects,Applications tabs08:59
ikoniaTaddle: research it08:59
TaddleMeh, or I could ask one my friends at Mozilla IT09:00
ikoniaTaddle: sure, ask them, that's research too09:00
kris021ikonia: So what do you think would be the best course of action?09:00
DarwinSurvivorTaddle: linux is designed to be modularly secure, if 1 piece is attacked/penetrated, the rest should remain secure. by running mysql as root, if someone were to hack the mysql daemon (via sql injection, or what-ever), they could potentially take complete control of the *entire* system09:00
isabelMikey^: sorry, where is the preferences?09:00
ikoniakris021: depends on a lot of things09:00
dr_willisoften 10 min of readinv is worth 10 HRS on irc09:00

DarwinSurvivorTaddle: come back if you have any questions regarding help.ubuntu.com09:01
ikoniakris021: just re-install then, that's the quicker/easier less hassle approach, make note of the new password and you're fine09:01
isabelMikey^: ok, thanks i will have look, thanks09:02
kris021ikonia: Well it wasn't that I don't know the new password, it's that I never assigned it to the new account before trying to log in to it, only to realize that it doesn't have one09:02
Mikey^kris021: just a sec, If I understand you lost your password?09:02

hansonforensicsAh, yes that would be more helpful, sorry. :)09:06
kris021I believe it may have something to do with the fact that the account has no password at all09:06

dr_williskris021 from the recovery/root terminal you can easially add a new user.09:09
kris021Mikey^: Yes, I wasn't logged in, just using its root priveleges09:09
kris021bohemian9485: It doesn't have admin priveleges any more because the only admin account with root access has no password, therefore no way for me to utilize them. Although, the original, which is now gone, did.09:10
kris021dr_willis: I've tried that. Got the error: Authentication manipulation error09:11
dr_willissounds to me like you got deeper issues.09:12
dr_willissanest thing to do is just do a reinstall if this is a new install09:12
kris021dr_willis: Deeper issues like what? And that's probably what I'm going to do. It was just a hassle originally because it was from Wubi, then converted to a legit dual boot09:14
dr_williskris021:  i cant imagine why root cant make a new user.  and i realluy cant understand how the guest user can unlock stuff.09:14
Mikey^I think he is just saying stuff09:14
dr_willisif the guest user can unlock the user tool. try making a new user i guess..09:14
dr_willisbut i wouldent trust the system at all..09:15
bohemian9485i remember when i lost the root password for my backtrack os, and i used ubuntu 11.10 live usb to edit the shadow file and set the password to zero string09:16
dr_willisbohemian9485:  yep. thats doable.. but  the errors mentioned. i wonder if eventhin it would work. hard to tell09:17
Mikey^bohemian9485: but kris021 cant because he doesnt know the password so he cant use sudo09:17
dr_willisif he logs in as root via the recovery console - he is root allready. no sudo needed09:17
kris021dr_willis: I would, but I can09:17
Mikey^dr_willis: yes then he gets some manipulation error09:17
kris021't unlock it because there is no password09:18
dr_williskris021:  unlock? we are not refering to using the GUI tools...09:18
bohemian9485maybe the user account does not have sudo privelege?09:18
dr_willismanipulation error - imples to me thast some of the security files are messed up.09:18
kris021dr_willis: I was referring to your statement directed to me specifically earlier09:19
bohemian9485same conclusion here09:19
dr_willisi could have had the system reinstalled by now... ;)09:19
dr_willisBut the servers seem slow for updates . not sure whats going on09:19

Mikey^kris021: use wubi and reinstall09:21
Mikey^if  thats what you used before09:21
kris021Mikey^: Like I've said already, seeing as how that's my only real course of action other than constantly using a Guest account, I will. I just said that I didn't want to due to the hassle.

icerootBoreeas: sudo service lightdm restart (12.04) sudo service gdm restart (lower then 12.04)09:38
alankilabut to do this, I had to fight broken assumptions made by libvirt about how the pages work -- at least today -- and apparmor. Took a while.09:38

alankilaso I had to mount hugetlbfs on /hugepages/libvirt/qemu then tell qemu that the pages are at /hugepages so that it appends that libvirt/qemu again -- it turns out hugepages don't work if you make further directory structure in the hugepage filesystem, but libvirt insisted on that09:39

Sawhi guys, I have a a question about packages. I can see ubuntu got packages specifically for it. What are these? why should I install them and not the "offical" ones? can I install the offical ones anyway?12:06
hwildeSaw, specifically for what12:07
* blingbling removed the ubuntu software center12:07
hwildehow does one tell which nvidia module is necessary for EVGA 52012:07
Sawhwilde - for ubuntu. for example, g++. ubuntu (lucid) got g++ 4.4.3. at GCC website, you can find 4.7. any reason I should use and not the other?12:07
Dr_WillisSaw:  use whats in the repos.12:07
ActionParsnipSaw: the packages in the repos are the official ones for Ubuntu, you may add 3rd party sources called PPAs and get newer or different software but there are no guaruntees of safety or functionality12:07
Dr_WillisSaw:  unless you have some specific needs for newer versions, then theres Unsupported PPA's out for most things.12:08
hwildehow does one tell which nvidia module is necessary for EVGA 52012:08
ActionParsniphwilde: if you upgrade or clean install to Lucid, you will be supported12:09
Sawwhat is PPA? (i'm assuming something with package, but still)12:09
jondot_in 12.04, how can i set the font size in Terminal to be a fraction? i.e. 10.6 ? it was possible in 11.0412:09
hwildeActionParsnip, dude that is a generic question12:09
hwildewhen I upgrade or install I will have the same question12:09
ActionParsnipSaw: its a 3rd party source, managed by some guy giving an extra source for packages12:09
hwildehow do you tell which nvidia module is necessary for the EVGA 520 graphics card12:09
vitshi guys, i have one question.how to download the deb packages using apt command12:09
SawActionParsnip I ment the initials, I did read what you wrote :} I have to say though it sounds a bit weird. Is there any particular reason g++ (in our example) wouldn't work on ubuntu, but work on other distributions?12:10
ActionParsniphwilde: your chip is newish so you will need the 295 driver, this will not be installable as there are no sources for packages12:10
ActionParsnip!ppa | Saw12:10
ubottuSaw: A Personal Package Archive (PPA) can provide alternate software not normally available in the offical Ubuntu repositories - Looking for a PPA?

ActionParsniphwilde: its a newish chip so the latest will be fine. My 6150LE works with the 295 too12:11
Sawyou're saying if I use packages from ubuntu, and I have a problem with it, I'll get ubuntu support for it?12:11
hwildeno you will be told to upgrade :-D12:11
LjLSaw, it's still all voluntary support so you don't really have a guarantee of any kind unless you actually sign up for paid support from Canonical12:11
ufrgsHello guys!12:12
ActionParsnipSaw: you will get support here for the packages from the official repos12:12
ActionParsnipSaw: as long as your release isn't EOL, you'll get support12:12
ufrgsDoes anybody knows which font does Firefox uses at its source code view pages?12:12
Sawhwilde - why? lucid got LTS, it's still supported, isn't it? :P12:12
hwildedon't mind me i'm just mad at my graphics card.12:13
SawActionParsnip - EOL? and won't I get support from the offical repos if I use PPA as well?12:13
ActionParsnipSaw: indeed. Lucid is EOL in April 201412:13
ActionParsnipSaw: EOL = end of life = not supoprted12:14
SawActionParsnip - 2015 for server :P12:14

solderblobCrypto_, what about vim? nano?14:02

ikoniaZentaur: what's the issue ?14:25
solderblobZentaur, there is a little slider thing that shows you windows on the left and ubuntu on the right, you can adjust that, 250 gb is fine14:25
ikoniatailf: crontab does not have your environment setup14:25
ikoniatailf: eg: when you run it's managing YOUR enviornment, when crontab does it, it's no-ones14:25

solderblobszerzetes, tvtime, which is why I suggested it14:27
ikoniakarthick87: partition schema is personal to you14:27

ikoniatailf: if it was my machine, that' show I'd do it, hardcode my displsy settings14:28

ZaNeIuMDr_Willis how would it be done, would you mind trying it?14:53
Dr_Willisgccster:  theres some known power saveing issues with some devices/chipsets. Id say check the forums and askubuntu.com for your exact make/model laptop. and they Might have some work arounds and tweaks.14:53
raptor_@<Dr_Willis> can you suggest anything else bcz ubuntu as username is not working14:53
Dr_WillisZaNeIuM:  just a quick google search shows --> http://serverfault.com/questions/12419/monitor-an-incoming-ssh-session-in-real-time14:54

zykotick9raptor_: i've never liked persistent usb installs, i've found doing a proper install to the usb (including grub to usb) a lot more useful - then persistant installs.14:57

SolarisBoysharko: what do you mean get it to work? how are you trying to make it work? or do you expect it to work?15:08
Dr_Willisvg-loc:  i just use themes from the repos. or the webupd8 sites ppa's15:08
NcAsharko: you need to be a bit more specific15:08
vg-loccan u give me the link15:08
NcAsharko: did you install it via aptitude?15:08
sharkoSolarisBoy i used sudo get-app instail15:08
SolarisBoysharko: ok - and what exactly are you looking to happen now?15:08
Dr_Willisvg-loc:   the sites name is 'webupd8'15:09
Dr_Willisvg-loc:  they got a ppa. with some nice themes in it15:09
SolarisBoysharko: php is a language generally used to produce dynamic web content15:09
zykotick9gccster: get it working you mean?  ya.  (i've never had this h/w so don't really know the specifics) but you need to install bumblebee and or research more on nvidia-optimus support in linux15:09
vg-locand how to install them ??15:09
Dr_Willisvg-loc:  since its a PPA.. you use the normal package manager tools....15:09
SolarisBoysharko: are you running php in some webserver which is configured to execute PHP files and have php files in your web root and are seeing an issue?15:09
gccsterzykotick9, im sure its hardware acceleration problem15:09
SolarisBoysharko: else PHP generally doesn't do anything by itself..15:10
vg-locdo i need a ware to install it or something ?15:10
zykotick9gccster: i think, once you have bumblebee properly working the nvidia driver starts to work properly (ie acceleration)15:10
sharkowell SolarisBoy it to open in terminator and i dont have one as im working on someing for a mates server he just wnats me to code15:10
gccsterzykotick9, where can i find bubmblebe?15:10
Dr_Willisvg-loc:  You may want to spend some time learning some more ubuntu basics. you add the ppa, the items appear in the normal software center/synaptic/apt-get tools.. same as all the other apps do.15:10
Xeliaaaargh pulseaudio ;((15:11
SolarisBoysharko: you dont open the php binary, it interprets php code15:11
zykotick9gccster: no idea ;)15:11
Dr_Willisvg-loc:  the webupd8 pages detail exactly how to install the themes using apt-get15:11
gccsterzykotick9, do u know what is it?15:11
sharkoSolarisBoy ok then how to i get it to run then15:11

zykotick9!notunity | matelot15:24
ubottumatelot: 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".

smithwHi, I'm having wi-fi woes. I have 8GB RAM, so I installed 12.04 64-bit. My wireless is not automatically picked by Ubuntu, so on to ndiswrapper. The 64-bit version of my card's window driver makes calls to functions package-ndiswrapper don't have (IoWMI family). So I compiled ndiswrapper from SVN, which has those functions implemented, but now it fails with "ioremap failed", and I don't know where to go now.16:02
melkorShanth: you can see how much it is d/loading, there is not much.16:02
stars69hi, is there away i can set desktop sharing application on auto start when system started?16:02
TheAlliedFleetI choose the disk image within furius and click the mount button. Does (fuse) (loop) (Md5) and (SHA1) have anything to do with it ikonia16:02
melkorsmithw: Who told you to install ndiswrapper?16:02
Shanthhow much  more after Get:2316:03
ActionParsnipstars69: add a startup item to run the command you run16:03
smithwmelkor, I've used it before (on other computers). Also, I don't think there is a native driver for my wireless card (RTL8723AE).16:03
Shanthdo internet connection necessary while installing ubuntu 12.0416:04
melkorsmithw: I don't think you need ndiswrapper.16:04

VirtualBlacknessAFD: do you have two specific GPUs?16:05
=== VirtualBlackness is now known as L3top
smithwmelkor, if there is a better solution, I'm all ears. I'd rather have a native driver anyway. However, evidently b43 isn't that driver...16:05
Shanthbut , i think due to that reason apt-get update is taking much time for running first time16:05

ikoniaAFD: you just need to setup two seperate X servers in the xorg.conf16:06
AFDikonia: ok I'll try it16:07
aguitelany gui to manage boot order ?16:07
smithwmelkor, nope. 12.04 uses b43 by default, and it does not claim my wireless card, as reported by lshw -C network...16:07
ActionParsnipstars69: use the startup items command in dash16:07
zykotick9L3top: fyi you need "lscpi -v" to see multiple cards if it's hybrid16:08
L3topUnfortunately AFD I only know how to do that identifying and assigning the PCI busses. Nvidia has a twinview setting.16:08
smithwI haven't seem the dmesg with which b43 fail, though.16:08
L3topThat is not my experience zykotick916:08
ActionParsnipaguitel: do you want windows to be default in grub by any chance?16:08
WalterNaguitel: there is, I dont remember what its called though... lemme see if I can find it16:08
L3topSorry zykotick9 I thought you were referring to optimus etc... you are likely correct16:08
aguitelActionParsnip, no i have other linux os16:08
zykotick9L3top: if it's 2 or more inpendent cards the -v isn't required, only for optimus16:08
AFDL3top: Ill look in to it. thanks for the help16:09
L3topOptimus displays two zykotick9.16:09
melkorsmithw: did you check this thread? http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=160410116:09
L3topintel and nvidia... however there are all sorts of combinations now, intel/ati ati/ati intel/intel... I do not know how they would display, nor a single card with multiple outputs as they are on the same bus it seems.16:10
zykotick9L3top: with lscpi?  if you have the hardware you'd be the one to know!  but when asked to post lspci pastes, i often see only the intel mentioned?!16:10
melkorsmithw: it looks like you can d/load and build the drivers.16:10
L3topzykotick9: I have to write detection routines, so I see them just about every day when someone is complaining my code isn't working... but I have never had an optimus that did not display both.16:11
smithwmelkor, I might be missing something, but that thread is about RTL8188CE, and my wireless card is a RTL8723AE. are they compatible/should I try it anyway?16:11
zykotick9L3top: interesting, thanks.16:11
bigpapais there away to see if ubuntu recognizes both display adapters?16:11

spiritechdoes anyone know how to turn off remember window state?16:12
smithwmelkor, also the download page linked doesn't have a driver for 872316:12
zykotick9L3top: prior to bumblebee (or other), does the video get detected differently?16:12
ActionParsnipstars69: what do you use VNC to connect to achieve, often VNC isn't needed and there are more graceful solutions16:12
Kyle__L3top: multiple cards from multiple vendors with multiple heads work in linux.  I've tried it.16:12
Kyle__And can I say multiple one more time.16:12
spiritechi run the --geometry option when openning a app from the terminal and it ignores the argument.16:13
Kyle__L3top: Mind you, it wasn't the prettiest setup, it was awhile ago, and I had to make the xorg.conf by hand :)16:13

zykotick9satop1: are you using compiz?16:14
satop1no16:14
ActionParsnipbigpapa: the only way I can think with Intel is to make an xorg.conf. I've not used dual dispaly outside Nvidia so am not much help.16:14
melkorsmithw: I think if you dload that one, and build the driver and install it you will not have an additional problem. If the driver doesn't work/isn't compatible it won't be used.16:14
satop1is there another place to set mouse cursor theme ?16:15
smithwmelkor, thanks for your help, I'll try it then :)16:15
Kyle__bigpapa: if the unity/gnome panels aren't seeing it, you need to start making a custom xorg.conf, usually starting with X -configure (as root, from the command line).16:15
melkorsmithw: what kernel are you using.16:15
spiritechIkonia: i am trying to use it whit nautilus and search for files.16:15
bigpapaActionParsnip thank you for your help, i should have bought nvidia lol16:15
ikoniaspiritech: I don't know if nautilus will abide by it16:16
bigpapaKyle do you happen to know a good how to on that? i'm a noobie linux user16:16

L3topzykotick9: We do not use bumblebee, I dedicate the discrete gpu because we are graphics intensive and need accelleration16:18
Kyle__stars69: To connect to remote desktops or to remote into your own desktop?16:18
L3topKyle__: I know they work, I just haven't figured out how to auto-generate an xorg.conf using them16:18
stars69Kyle__, To connect to remote desktops16:18
spiritechstars69 i always found remmina quiet good16:19
Kyle__stars69: Actually, ubuntu comes with both, so I don't know why I asked.... I think if you click on the unity icon and type remote desktop viewer it should be right there.16:19
Kyle__stars69: Then wen it comes up, there's a drop-down to let you select vnc ssh or rdp.  If rdp doesn't show up you need to download err... holdon..lemmie think of the name.  Something like rdesktop?16:19
stars69Kyle__, those came with ubuntu are sucks ass16:19

StumpyHello16:20
ment0sI dont know if you guys can help me.., I have 1TB NTFS Hard drive with movies etc but ubuntu is recognizing it as 3 partitions and i cant acces it. The HDD contains one big partiton NTFS which works no bother windows.. any ideas whats wrong ?16:20
melkorsmithw: I don't know if the 8723 is the device you are looking for, there might be a different number you need.16:20
StumpyI don't have access to a hard-line internet connection, I only have wireless available to me. I want to install Ubuntu 12.04, but need the restricted hardware tool to get wireless set up. How do I get around this?16:21
Kyle__stars69: For several versions the vnc viewer in there was laggy (that was a gnome problem, not ubuntu's), but always worked well enough for me.  If you want something other than that, tigervncvewer is fantastic for vnc, google it, and you can download rdesktop to give it a shot.16:22
smithwmelkor, 8723 is the device according to lspci -nn (03:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. Device [10ec:8723]), but I know sometimes drivers work with multiple devices16:22

ment0sL3top: it looks like partition table failed but under windows  works fine and see only one partition16:28
Wiz_KeeDi am patient it's ok, thanks16:28

melkorsmithw: you could try d/loading and older kernel from the mainline ppa16:45
knutremikourtney_kane: I checked it now. It's changeable through the Advanced Settings application, yes. Search for "Advanced Settings" in the software center.16:46
ment0ssmithw: 32bit version does support more than 4gb ram ?16:46
kourtney_kaneknutremi: i am getting dependency error16:47
smithwmelkor, which one? some from the 2.x line?16:47
melkorsmithw: I would say 3.016:47
lundment0s, yes with pae16:47
kourtney_kaneThe following packages have unmet dependencies:16:47

kourtney_kane               Depends: gnome-session-common (= 3.2.1-0ubuntu8) but 3.2.1-0ubuntu8 is to be installed16:47
smithwment0s, does it? the only reason I installed the 64-bit version is the fact that this laptop has 8GB ram16:47
smithwment0s, if there is a way to access all my RAM with a 32-bit version, please do tell!16:47
melkorsmithw: ment0s 32bit os's cannot address more than 4 gigs16:48
ment0ssmithw: ^read lund post16:48
kourtney_kanecan you help16:48
lundsmithw, pae, afaik this default on 32 bit in 12.0416:49
knutremikourtney_kane: Are you able to cite some of the information in the dependency error. Or is that all the information you got?16:49
ment0ssmithw: i had server with 6gb ram and pae kernel reads it no bother16:49
kourtney_kanegnome-session: Depends: gnome-session-bin (>= 3.2.1-0ubuntu8) but 3.2.1-0ubuntu8 is to be installed16:49
kourtney_kane             Depends: gnome-session-common (= 3.2.1-0ubuntu8) but 3.2.1-0ubuntu8 is to be installed16:49
smithwlund, so all I'd have to do is install 12.04 32-bit and my RAM would already be there? (I'd do a clean install, this is a new laptop anyway)16:49
kourtney_kanethese are unmet dependencies16:49
ment0ssmithw: and installer detect ram automaticlly so it chosed kernel itself16:50
ment0ssmithw: just install it as normal and it w16:50
ment0ssmithw: just install it as normal and it will do the rest16:50
smithwso, it seems I have two options now, go for kernel 3.0.0 or 32-bit/PAE version...16:50
smithwment0s, how would I know if PAE is active and all my RAM is being used?16:51
knutremikourtney_kane: I never figured out how to solve those dependency errors. I guess you have another question that needs answering now. ;)16:51

Dead_AssClownim new to ubuntu17:00
smithwment0s, I'm not experienced enough to manage multiple kernels on a single machine, but I can try and learn how to that also17:00
smithw*to do17:00
Dead_AssClownidle can't import Tkinter.  Your Python may not be configured for Tk.17:01
ment0ssmithw: you can also come back to your old kernel anytime, it will be listed on boot menu in grub17:01
knutremikourtney_kane: I'm out of suggestions. You could try installing a theme from http://ubuntu-art.org/index.php?xcontentmode=100 though. So guarantees that it will make things better though.17:01
smithwment0s, but wouldn't that break compatibility with 64-bit drivers/applications?17:02
ment0sapplications could have some problems but new kernel mean new drivers also17:02
melkorsmithw: If this page works for you, the driver seems to have your chipset in it. http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads/downloadsView.aspx?Langid=1&PNid=53&PFid=53&Level=5&Conn=4&DownTypeID=3&GetDown=false&Downloads=true#RTL8192DE-VC17:03

TynachKyle__, no, this is on a 1 - 3 year old ASUS motherboard.18:12
Tynachikonia, I'm currently reinstalling Ubuntu (with the exact same setup, but formatting all relevant partitions and redoing the LVM), so if it happens again, I will note the error.18:12
Kyle__Tynach: Hum.  I don't recall hearing about EFI on asuses, but I"m not expert on them either.... This just rings a bell for when I had to install ubuntu-server on a system with EFI.18:12
TynachKyle__, if it were EFI, it wouldn't have worked in 11.10 and 11.04.18:13

Tynachikonia, because I'm using LVM, I presume I'll need to use a LiveCD that is not Ubuntu? Ubuntu LiveCD doesn't come with LVM.18:29
ikoniarahulwadh: don't need that sort of nonsense here18:29
As001can you tell me configuration file for X so I can try to set it18:29

L3topikonia: couldn't Tynach install LVM from the live disk?18:30
Tynachikonia, not really, but I'm using LVM as a sort of RAID. Here's a description of my setup: https://plus.google.com/u/0/110992079327865803047/posts/eYfhiK4Gecr18:30
shawerahulwadh, its backlight to 0 on start?18:30
TynachKyle__, the alternate installer isn't exactly a LiveCD.18:30
ikoniaL3top: no, not without a signigicant error18:31
ikoniaL3top: significant effort sorrt18:31
Kyle__Tynach: Good point, was thinking installing :)18:31
Node_556thankz DJones18:31
FisherActionParsnip, I usually know how to fix repository errors but this one has got me, can someone take a look. http://paste.ubuntu.com/996072/18:31
Kyle__Tynach: you're using lvm mirroring, but not on /boot, right?  lvm mirroring on boot can cause a system to be non-bootable.18:31
MadarChodBhosDKL3top: Here are the contents of etc/apt/sources.list.d/oneiric.partner.list------> http://archive.canonical.com/ubuntu precise partner #Added by software-center18:31
TynachL3top, I probably could, good point. ikonia, you sure? I thought as long as you had enough RAM (I have 6GB), you could install stuff in the LiveCD session. Kyle__, alternate installer is what I used to install; and just went through the reinstall, with the same issue.18:31
shaweif "problem" persists, you can put on rc.local a command for replace brightness to 100% on boot, isn't the best solution, but you don't need to do it manually anymore18:32
TynachKyle__, no, not mirroring, striping. And /boot is a normal ext4 partition.18:32
DaDaDOSPromptupdate manager moving slowly for anyone else today?18:32
ikoniaTynach: ok, so here are some things to consider18:32
DaDaDOSPromptI pressed check a while ago and it is going nuts on me18:32
DaDaDOSPromptdownloads are quite slow, but nothing else is18:32
L3topMadarChodBhosDK: is there anything else in /etc/apt/sources.list.d other than that?18:32
ikoniaTynach: you have partitions for the the LVM section, are their partition types marked as "LVM"18:33
Tynachikonia, yes. They are.18:33
Kyle__Tynach: OK.  I thought you said that before, just wanted to make sure :)    Never tried lvm striping myself...18:33
MadarChodBhosDKL3top: yes18:33
ikoniaTynach: I'm not being funny - I'm just checking all is well, so "how do you know", or what are you doing to check/confirm that18:33
ikoniaTynach: I'm only asking as a lot of people make this sort of mistake18:33

prateekpi was installing eclipse i follwed all the steps given on link http://colinrrobinson.com/technology/install-eclipse-ubuntu/ but at the execution it says an error18:34
L3topI said is there anything ELSE, meaning other than that MadarChodBhosDK. MadarChodBhosDK: if it were me, I would delete everything in the sources.list.d directory and update.18:34
Kyle__ikonia: They actually don't need to be marked LVM.  I do it anyway, but that part isn't necesasary.  Usually.18:34
ikoniaKyle__: it really depends,18:35
prateekpthe error is bash: /opt/eclipse/eclipse: cannot execute binary file18:35
Tynachikonia, I understand, this is all troubleshooting :) And, I simply remember in the Alternate installer, because I redid the LVM. I made sure to only use my two LVM partitions; right now just the 200 GB and the 100GB from the 500GB that partially has Windows on it (if you read my Google+ post that I linked).18:35
Kyle__prateekp: Are you sure you're using the right version?  32bit for 32bit, amd64 for amd64?18:35
ikoniaTynach: how are you confirming the partition type is set to LBM18:36
ikoniaLVM18:36
ActionParsnipprateekp: does the file exist and is it executabl18:36
MadarChodBhosDKL3top: there are two files in that directory each with the same content....I am trying deleting and updating now18:36
prateekpyes it exist and is executable18:36
prateekpbut nothing happens on double clicking it18:36
domino14if theres a program that is doing a very bad job of fragmenting memory, can i see the total memory usage of the process with ps aux?18:36
Tynachikonia, right now I'm still at the grub rescue> prompt. How would you recommend I confirm? Because right now I'm just going off memory, which I understand is insufficient.18:37
Kyle__prateekp: Try running file on it.  file /opt/eclipse/eclipse or whatever it is.18:37
L3topMadarChodBhosDK: also check that cat /etc/apt/sources.list does not contain any PPAs18:37
ikoniaTynach: I'm guessing based on experience (and I should say this is only a guess) the second disk in your LVM config isn't spinning up fast enough for the volume to start at boot time18:37
domino14or is that inaccurate? if free -m shows that theres 2 gb of memory left, but it's super fragmented, do i know this info?18:37
L3topman thats clever ikonia. Wouldn't have occurred to me.18:37
ActionParsnipprateekp: what is the output of: uname -a; file /opt/eclipse/eclipse18:38
Tynachikonia, interesting. It worked for 11.10 though.18:38
ikoniaTynach: you may want to use a livecd, install lvm and manually assemble the volume group, mount the logical volume and verify it's integrity18:38
escottdomino14, you can access the raw memory map in /proc/PID there might be a tool to measure fragmentation of that18:38
ikoniaTynach: also verify the grub config18:38
Tynachikonia, will do. On that note, how do I verify the grub config?18:38
prateekpthe output of 'file /opt/eclipse/eclipse': ELF 64-bit LSB executable, x86-64, version 1 (SYSV), dynamically linked (uses shared libs), for GNU/Linux 2.4.0, not stripped18:38
ActionParsnipdomino14: fragmented memory?18:38
ikoniaTynach: try setting the grub configs root to /dev/vg00/root_lv or what ever it's called18:38
Kyle__ikonia: Box with lots of fast scsi drives starting staggered?18:39
domino14escott: free -m shows theres about 17% of memory usage, but my program is crashing because of "out of memory", which makes no sense, right?18:39
andrew_word?18:39
domino14ActionParsnip: i dont know, im out of ideas18:39
ikoniaKyle__: I'm guessing, nothing more, as I have no info to work with18:39
MadarChodBhosDKL3top: no there are only precise universe multiverse links in /etc/apt/sources.list18:39
domino14can ram get really fragmented so an allocator cant find contiguous blocks?18:39
Kyle__ikonia: Ah.  I was wondering where you've experienced that, and that's the only situation I coudl think of.18:39
domino14am i just pulling that out of somewhere?18:39
ActionParsnipprateekp: and: uname -a18:39
Kyle__prateekp: And what does uname -a say?18:39
ikoniaTynach: look at the grub grub.cfg and make sure it's pointing at vaid devices,18:39
prateekpLinux papri 2.6.38-8-generic #42-Ubuntu SMP Mon Apr 11 03:31:50 UTC 2011 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux18:40
escottdomino14, it would be almost impossible on 64bit. but on 32bit R would do that all the time because it tried to malloc a contiguous array, but could not because its virtual address space is fragmented. usually programs are better about that and give a more accurate error message18:40
Tynachikonia, I have the volume group named vg_root and the logical volume named lv_root. Booting into the LiveCD right now.18:40
Kyle__prateekp: You've got a 32bit kernel, and installed the 64bit version of ecplise.  Download and install the 32bit version of eclipse.18:40
ActionParsnipdomino14: the memory management in the kernel will prevent that18:40
L3topok MadarChodBhosDK, do whatever it was you were doing that brought you here to begin with after update is finished18:40
ikoniaTynach: yhou may want to consider (just a thought) changing the grub root option to /dev/vg_root/lv_root18:40
ikoniaTynach: that will remove any possability the uuid is wrong18:40
prateekpok so does it mean that 32 bit application runs on my OS18:40
prateekpand one more thing how u get to know that my kernel is 32 bit18:41
Kyle__prateekp: Yes.  It means only 32bit applications can run.18:41
Kyle__prateekp: Because it said i686.18:41
MadarChodBhosDKL3top: ok...18:41
prateekpand what is for 64 bit18:41
ActionParsnipKyle__: thanks, typing on a GT540 is hard with these thumbs18:41
prateekp?18:41
Tynachikonia, when I was trying to reinstall grub manually, I used the alternate installer to get into a root environment using /dev/vg_root/lv_root. Here is the command I used:18:41
Tynachgrub-install --root-directory=/ /dev/sda18:41
Kyle__prateekp: The 64bit 86 kernels all say x86_6418:42
zykotick9prateekp: 64bit is x86_6418:42
Kyle__ActionParsnip: No problem.  I _hate_ complex typing with my thumbs.18:42
ActionParsnipprateekp: x86_6418:42
Kyle__or typing period with them.../18:42
Tynach / at the time was the filesystem in /dev/vg_root/lv_root, and I also had previously mounted /dev/sda5 (the 100 MB /boot partition) to /boot.18:42
* L3top resists temptation 18:42
ikoniaTynach: root isn't /dev/sda18:43
Tynachikonia, read my line again. --root-directory=/18:43
TynachNote the 'slash'.18:43
Tynach/dev/sda was the device I installed grub to.18:43
ActionParsnipKyle__: handy on bus journeys :-)18:43
Kyle__grub supports booting off of an LVM /boot now... will the ubuntu installer let you do it?18:43
ikoniaKyle__: didn't think it did support that18:44
Kyle__ActionParsnip: I hear ya.18:44
TynachKyle__, I kept hearing that from people in #debian, but I'm not going to risk it.18:44
Kyle__ikonia: Grub does, but most distro-installers don't.18:44
Kyle__Tynach: That's how I found out not to LVM mirror /boot18:44

prateekpok18:49
prateekpcan u give me example of drivers18:49
Tynachikonia, what packages for lvm support do I need? Just lvm2?18:50
Kyle__prateekp: anything that shows up when you type lsmod as root18:50
ActionParsnipLibs, not drivers18:50
ikoniaTynach: it should pull in all dependencies18:50
ment0sthere are thousand of them :P18:50

hdhzerohi everyone. I would like to know if exists a smart cd with an ncurses interface or similar18:51

escotthdhzero, smart cd?18:51
Kyle__ment0s: and dmidecode shows everything your bios sees.18:52
JD_MLJD_ML18:52
Tynachikonia, Kyle__, I successfully mounted the logical volume. It's working fine.18:52
lundretis, i used this method http://www.webupd8.org/2012/01/install-oracle-java-jdk-7-in-ubuntu-via.html18:52
ikoniaTynach: ok, look at your lvm tab18:52
ikoniaTynach: look at it's uuid18:52
ikoniaverify that against the grub config18:52
hdhzeroJust as nautilus has / > home > user > folder, I was wondering if there is something with a cli interface18:53

ubottuDiddy403: 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 !classic18:57

dontknowikonia, wait a sec18:58
Diddy403last time I ran linux was Debian Sarge, has a lot changed since then?18:58
Tynachikonia, I cannot find any partitions or filesystems that match the hex string that grub error'd on.18:59
ikoniaTynach: ok, so that suggests it's looking for a non-existant device18:59
zeidozgridbag: did you use apt-cache to search?  i see a package "alsa-base"18:59

I thought its because of LightDM so I have removed it but still the same on GDM.. also I have insta19:01

Diddy403thanks lanceio19:04
JD_MLby. im going to learn more to go back here19:04
lanceiothats what its used for19:04
ikoniaTynach: never seen that before, not sure what the reference to flexnet is about19:05
wilee-nileeDiddy403, it is theoretically a dualboot it may run slower, and will only be a file in windows.19:06
Tynachikonia, I know that Maya (3D program) uses a system called FlexLM for DRM. But that was older versions; newer versions don't use it. Is there a way to override that decision and use 'sector 55' anyway?19:06
ikoniaTynach: flexlm is totally different, don't confuse that19:06
ikoniaTynach: that's a distributed method19:06
escottTynach, you could dd over the mbr including sector 55. that way grub won't find any flexnet data19:06
ikoniaescott: careful this is an lvm locical volume, so don't remove the lvm header19:07
Tynachikonia, I 'man update-grub''d, and according to it it's a stub for grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg. So I tried grub-mkconfig -o /media/biglonghexfolderformountedlv/boot/grub/grub.cfg.19:12
TynachAnd I got this error: /usr/sbin/grub-probe: error: cannot find a device for / (is /dev mounted?).19:12
escottTynach, you should do that from within a chrot19:13
escottchroot19:13
ActionParsnipTynach: did you chroot?19:13
Tynachescott, ActionParsnip, I've done chroot a few times before, and it's always been a hassle (and following a guide strictly). My understanding is that if I only chroot, it will not bring /dev and so forth with it.19:14
escottTynach, mount --bind /dev /media/chroot/dev19:14
Tynachescott, I presume I'd have to do that BEFORE I chroot, yes?19:14
