ubottuIBMHPGOOGLE: fsck is the FileSystem ChecKer, which runs automatically when you boot if you didn't shutdown cleanly. Type "man fsck" for information on running it manually. The command "sudo touch /forcefsck && sudo shutdown -r now" will force a reboot and a filesystem check; "sudo touch /fastboot" will skip a filesystem check at next reboot00:13

K1rkI am attempting to setup an L2TP VPN server on my Ubuntu 12.04 LTS server using openswan and xl2tpd. I am having a problem connecting. I have done quite a bit of Googling, and there's an extensive Ubuntu Forums thread on this problem, but the suggestions in the thread don't fix it.00:57
K1rkAnyone have this working and be willing to trade notes with me?00:57
BlackshirtPbx2, i think you was used vendor version00:57
pbx2I want 295.53 one which is listed on Nvidia's website, but whenever I do "sudo sh ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-295.53.run" it says " You appear to be running an X server; please exit X before installing..."00:57
pbx2But I don't know how00:57
pbx2?00:58
i7cCerrdor: can you configure something about that? do tcp connections work? or is it only udp?00:58
K1rkpbx2, I remember that, that was a pain in the ass.00:58
K1rkpbx2 first of all you'll need to install it while you are in the TTY, you can't be in a desktop session.00:58
aguitelpbx2, why not install from ubuntu repo this driver?00:58
olskolircI feel your dilima lrojas I can't google your answer00:59
lrojasBlackshirt: yes, i can... but using locate the only php.ini is the one at /etc/php5/apache2/00:59
pbx2aguitel, the ubuntu repo gives me 295.49 not 295.5300:59
K1rkpbx2, aguitel has a point.  On my desktop at work I am using the nVidia driver from the Restricted Drivers thing. It's working fine.00:59
BlackshirtPbx2, you should install it from pure console based...not on gui environment00:59
aguitelpbx2, not difference01:00
Cerrdori7c, how do I test that?01:00
pbx2Blackshirt, how would I go into pure console?01:00
K1rkpbx2: the hackish workaround I did, was to chmod -x the Xorg executible, go to a TTY, killall gnome-session, and run the nvidia installer. Then chmod +x the executible again and reboot.01:00
K1rkNot that I recommend doing that.01:00
K1rkBut it would work01:00
aguitelpbx2, make in terminal :sudo apt-get install nvidia-current && nvidia-xconfig and restart the pc01:01

yobsoggothchecking02:44
K1rkyobsoggoth: When I do kernel updates I have to recompile my nvidia driver.02:44

K1rkxisor: If you can't run "apt-add-repository" because it does not exist, run (apt-get install python-software-properties) to install apt-add-repository.03:16
xisorK1rk:  should i do these 151 updates ubuntu says it has for me first?03:16
xisorK1rk: or no?>03:16
guest65536ActionParsnip thanks. I made a backup before and after the change. Adding 'Option "DynamicTwinView" "false"' fixed it.03:16
K1rkxisor: Dunno if that will matter or not.03:16
K1rkxisor: I mean it won't hurt to do it or not to do it, just maybe one of them is the fix you need. :P03:17
K1rkxisor: Sorry to just poke in the dark like this but this is how weird problems like this have to be solved. I work in IT professionally and this is how we have to solve most of our problems, it's just the user doesn't typically see it. :P03:17
xisorK1rk: whats the command line for updating all the packages? the icon that was there befor emy reboot about having updates isnt there anymorer03:18
xisorK1rk: anymore*03:18
vajrapani666I realize you can install a specific version of something using apt-get install firefox=3.5.2 ...  How can you get a list of all versions that could be installed? Everytime i try anything I get E: Version '3.6.3' for 'firefox' was not found (with 3.6.3 being whatever i had after the =) ?03:18
K1rkxisor: sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade -y && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade -y03:18
K1rkThat'll install ALL updates.03:19
xisorK1rk: and none of that will break my pc?03:19

harushimoi got gparted loaded03:19
reisioharushimo: don't brag03:19
K1rkharushimo: It took that long to open Gparted?03:19
K1rkYou may have...erm, other issues.03:19
reisioK1rk: load03:19
harushimoit was running for a while03:19
reisioshould've been tired and easy to catch, then03:20
harushimofor some odd gparted, its take awhile03:20
harushimoit was scanning the devices03:20
reisioif you have a lot of disks they might've had to spin up03:20
reisioright03:20
harushimoI have two hard drives03:20
K1rkThat explains it. Should've unplugged your 26 flash drives first harushimo .03:20
xisorK1rk: 3 mins to fetch the updates, after that ill try that link you gave me and see if it fixes it ok?03:20
harushimohaha03:20
harushimonice03:20
harushimoit wasn't03:20
harushimoI've noticed that with gparted03:20
manadysK1rk: and that's what's awesome about Linux03:20
K1rkxisor: The command I sent you has 3 different download processes. It may be a bit longer than 3 mins. That may just be this phase.03:21
manadysno limit to the number of independent drives03:21
harushimoit can take up 10 mins sometime for gparted to load03:21
harushimoI still don't understand why03:21
K1rkmanadys: No one thing is awesome about Linux. Linux is just awesome all around.03:21
manadyswindows would die with about 24 partitions03:21
xisorK1rk: its on phase 2 already, the first one took like 8 seconds :P03:21
manadysK1rk: touche03:21
K1rkxisor: The 1st one just refreshes your package lists.03:21
K1rkxisor: 2nd downloads updates03:21
K1rkxisor: 3rd hits out any kernel upgrades needed.03:21
xisorK1rk: the only non awesome thing about linux is nobody makes games for linux :( have to have windows pretty much03:21
K1rkxisor: I sort of still do the same. Halo runs in WINE but not very well.03:22
harushimoIs it better to do two partitions or one for virtual machine03:22
K1rkxisor: Oddly enough Halo dedicated servers run great in WINE. I have a Linux datacenter hosted server that runs Halo CE dedicated servers smashingly.03:22
harushimoI was going to use the whole hard drive03:22
xisorK1rk: try running a game made this year in wine, it probably wont and definately wont run well03:22
harushimoas a virtual machine03:22
K1rkharushimo: Just do 1 partition, no benefit to 2. lol03:23
xisorK1rk:  thats ok tho, my windows machine is a gaming pc, and way too much hardware power for linux, have linux on this laptop :D03:23
harushimoalright03:23
harushimouse ext 4 right03:23
K1rkharushimo: When you do your VM you can partition the VM however you want still.03:23
K1rkyeah ext4 is good03:23
harushimook03:23
manadysxisor: isn't that an oxymoron?03:23
xisormanadys: what?03:23
manadystoo much hardware power for linux...03:23
harushimothere is label option in gparted03:23
K1rkxisor: I did the same for a long time. But my desktop is now 4 years old and I've made my gaming desktop Linux now. My laptop is dual boot Windows 7 and Ubuntu, and since it has 2GB nVidia graphics I can play recent games on that.03:23
harushimojust fill that with a random name?03:23
Harriscan i download and run xchat on a cd03:24
K1rkharushimo: Or do the more sensible, and leave it blank. :P03:24
manadystell that to the movie studios and space agencies using linux...03:24
xisormanadys: lol, unless im compiling something, i dont need a 6 core sandy bridge with 64 gigs of ram on linux :P and im not a programmer XD03:24
K1rkHarris: Do you mean a Live CD?03:24
harushimoi was going to do03:24
harushimohehe03:24
HarrisK1rk, no a normal cd03:24
K1rkHarris: I don't quite follow what you want to do. You're looking for like a portable apps version of xchat?03:24
HarrisK1rk,  my work does not let me install things03:25
K1rkHarris: Your work is using Ubuntu? I'm impressed.03:25
harushimoits done03:25
harushimothe partition is now created03:25
Harrisno windows xp K1rk03:25
K1rkHarris: Oh then what are you doing here in #ubuntu? lol03:25
Harrisisnt it available for windows03:26
K1rkHarris: www.silverex.org03:26
HarrisK1rk,  how do i put it on a disk to run03:26
xisorK1rk: does netflix work in linux? it requires silverlight to work in windows03:26
reisioxisor: not so far03:26
K1rkxisor: I don't think so. Although there is a Silverlight "replacement" called Moonlight that will work for web apps.03:26
xisorreisio: oh...03:26
reisiothey claim to be working on a Linux client03:26
reisiobut they've done that before, and reneged03:26
xisorhow am i supposed to watch my netflix then?03:26
manadysok, non-technical piece of advice...03:26
reisioxisor: hulu plus03:26
manadyswhen dealing with stinging insects...03:27
xisorreisio: hulu isnt netflix, nor does it have the same content :P03:27
HarrisActionParsnip,  do you have compiz03:27
manadysmake sure you *kill* them with the first swat...03:27
reisioxisor: the reverse is also true, and? =P03:27
reisiomanadys: why swat at all03:27
K1rkHarris: Depending on how your work is restricting you, you might not be able to run Xchat off a CD. (I am IT.)03:27
xisorand i want to be able to watch my netflix on my laptop stll03:27
harushimohulu works great on linux03:27
K1rkHarris: at my work we restrict the EXEs you can run on your computer.03:27
reisioxisor: you'll want to keep Windows for that03:27
Harrisok03:27
harushimoI haven't try hulu plus03:27
manadysreisio: because the vacuum was inside...03:27
xisordont have windows on here anymore reisio03:27
HarrisK1rk,  do you have compiz03:27
K1rkHarris: However renaming xchat.exe to something like "winword.exe" would probably enable you to run it despite our restrictions. Bahahaha03:27
reisiomanadys: why vacuum03:28
reisioxisor: no netflix for you, then03:28
K1rkHarris: www.portableapps.com - it looks like they might be working on an xchat, I see a download link there for Xchat Portable 2.8.603:28
manadysto get rid of the bug...03:28
xisorreisio: when did they say a linux client would be out?03:28
K1rkHarris: www.portableapps.com is a site you might find useful in general for bypassing your IT's installation restrictions.03:28
Harrisok03:28
reisioxisor: "soon" :p03:28
xisorreisio: so mac users cant watch netflix either? only windows?03:28
HarrisK1rk,  do you have compiz03:28
reisioxisor: Mac OS has silverlight, IIRC03:28
xisorreisio: oh03:29

K1rkHarris, I can't use Compiz on my desktop PC because it's incompatible with Xinerama. But I do have Compiz on my laptop.03:29
xisorreisio: yes, but i dont want to watch netflix on a 5 inch screen03:29
HarrisK1rk,  on compiz all of the boxes next to the setting is grey and uncheckable03:29

K1rkharushimo: You can grab a Live CD there and run Gparted on any computer to modify partitions.03:31
K1rkxisor: Link stuff...apt-add-repository and the like? Yeah03:31
EliahKaganthere's even an official GParted liveCD (not affiliated with the Ubuntu project) that has the latest version and is smaller than an Ubuntu desktop CD (because it doesn't give a fully functional desktop system or let you install an OS)03:31
harushimoI see that now03:32
xisorK1rk: what do i need to do to get repository again?03:32
HarrisK1rk,  in compiz how do you add the burn effect03:32

K1rkHarris: Is it not installed or what?03:32
reisioxisor: connect it to the big screen :p03:32
K1rkxisor: Then apt-add-repository should work as expected from the link.03:33
HarrisK1rk,  i need to know how to install and enable the burn effect03:33
K1rkHarris: I don't know which Compiz package that's in. but if you do (apt-get install compiz-*) I think that should install all effects.03:33

xisorK1rk: do you know if hdmi audio works correctly? and also if i can switch to external screen only and shut off the internal screen?03:44

vajrapani666I need to know the exact command to install an older version of firefox, and i would prefer not to build from source. I've looked up the .deb package on launchpad and downloaded that, but dpkg -i will not resolve dependencies.. There must be someway to do this using apt-get !03:45
_jon180_i see several bug reports for nvidia graphics cards and unity 3d but they are unclear which apply to me and what the solutions are, can someone help me figure these out?03:46
jagginessvajrapani666, you can download previous versions from the mozilla site..03:46
xisorK1rk: so i should set it up as if it only had the 1 speaker even though it has 2?03:46
xisorK1rk: wont that sound bad?03:46
yugnipcan you grab it from synaptic and force then pin the version vajrapani66603:46
K1rkxisor: That's what it sounds like your laptop is designed to do.03:46
xisorK1rk: so you think windows driver just does it automatically and thats why both seem to work?03:47

xisorK1rk: how do i mount a windows shared folder in linux? and have it attempt to do so at every bootup to the same place?03:48
K1rk_jon180_: Do you know what nvidia card you have?03:48
xisorK1rk: a network share03:48
_jon180_not exactly03:48
EliahKaganvajrapani666: there might not be a lot of (or any) dependencies you don't already have, i'd go ahead and try installing the .deb package with dpkg, if you have the .deb package ...just be aware that with an old Firefox version, you will be at high security risk because of very popularly known and exploited vulnerabilities that have been fixed in current versions03:48
K1rkxisor: Yeah you mean a Samba share03:48
K1rkxisor: You want to put it in your fstab03:48
_jon180_K1rk: what is the command to find this?03:48
xisorK1rk: ya03:49
xisorK1rk: how?03:49
EliahKaganvajrapani666: you can also install Firefox manually with the binary installer packages from the upstream site: http://askubuntu.com/questions/83227/how-can-i-install-a-specific-older-version-of-firefox-and-keep-it-from-automatic03:49

vajrapani666jagginess: those are source distributions,  I'm trying to avoid building manually at all costs because if we ever need to bump up the firefox revisions, i will have to clean out the old version myself (doubt i will remember where i left the src makefile for make uninstall)03:49

EliahKaganvajrapani666: you don't have to build manually unless you're using an uncommon architecture -- for the most popular architecture, the Firefox upstream site has *binary installers*03:50
hk19(xisor) softwares are available 4 auto mounting03:50
K1rk_jon180_: If that has nor esults just do lspci | grep VGA03:50
vajrapani666So pinning down the package in synaptic sounds like what i need ... but i'm curious , why provide the apt-get install package=version at all ?03:50

harushimoI know 10.04 there was an option called create icon03:51
harushimoyou can use that to create an icon by doing the path03:51
_jon180_oh, i meant they provide a fix for nvidia cards, but it does not say how to get the fix03:51
vajrapani666I'm asking , what is the point of providing the ability to specify the specific version of a package to install (i.e. by t he syntax apt-get install packagename=version) if there is no way to install packages by this method?03:51
K1rk_jon180_: Oh, my bad.03:52
EliahKaganvajrapani666: you can install packages that way, it works fine if the version you specify is provided in one or more of the software sources (repositories) you have enabled03:52
vajrapani666By not being able to install packages by this method i mean, there is no way to list the possible versions to install, err.. the list of valid arguments for version for the version-specific apt-get command)03:52
_jon180_and there are many solutions but none worked, probably because i am not understanding correctly03:52
K1rk_jon180_: Have you seen http://askubuntu.com/questions/125608/unity-3d-no-longer-works-after-installing-12-0403:52

xisorK1rk: yes03:53
K1rkxisor: In your terminal type (sudo nano /etc/fstab)03:53
_jon180_that is one, yes but that was an older solution that had a security concern, i was looking at the code fix that was released, not sure how to get it03:53

xisorK1rk: ok so use the example?03:57
K1rkxisor: k cool.  Yeah the example explains how to write the fstab line.03:57
K1rkxisor: Write 1 fstab line for each Windows share you want to mount.03:57
K1rkxisor: You'll just be replacing docsadm with your username, D1Y4x9sw with your password, and //ntserver/docs with your share path.03:58
K1rkxisor: /mnt/samba will be changed to the mountpoint you want your samba mounted to03:58

xisorK1rk: a subfolder of /mnt/windows?03:59
xisorK1rk: ok03:59
K1rkxisor: I think that's "for a different distro". Ubuntu it's traditionally /media/windows/mnthere03:59

harushimook04:26
harushimohow do I mount the partition I just created in gparted04:27
manadysharushimo: very carefully...04:27
manadysusually mount /dev/partition /mnt/mountpoint...04:27
manadysand if you want to have it automount, then you need to add it to fstab...04:27
rootyourselfmake a directory, do mount -t ext4 /dev/sdcwhatever04:27
rootyourselfmake sure you replace ext4 with the correct fs type on the partition04:28
manadysrootyourself: why do you need the -t? Doesn't mount detect that when possible?04:28
rootyourselfno04:28
EliahKaganor you can leave off -t and the partition type -- mount can auto detect it except for really exotic partition types or when there is severe corruption04:28
rootyourselfit can? well nice.  didn't know that04:28
Harrisburn is not in effect list in compiz04:28
EliahKaganyeah, i leave off -t all the time, and i've never had a problem except when i typed the device name in wrong04:28
EliahKaganin contrast, with -t will sometimes "work" even if you type in the device name wrong (like leaving off the partition number and mounting the raw drive) ....and that's baaaad...04:29
manadyswouldn't it also allow you to mount an ext4 partition as ext2...04:30
rootyourselfi have never successfully mounted non enumerated partitions04:30
rootyourselfi'd like to try tho04:30
EliahKagansome partition types interpret a device name differently though, so if you want to use mount instead of smbmount or mount.cifs to mount a Samba share, you need to specify -t smbfs, because otherwise a device that looks like //hostname/sharename won't make sense to the mount command04:30
=== nicholas is now known as Guest32517
manadyswhich in theory would be fine, but that would defeat the purpose of using ext4 (assuming my understanding of ext4 is correct)04:30

Guest32517anyone know how to setup google payments with ubuntu store?04:31
Daniel110hi all so i finally decided after using ubuntu on a virtualbox for a while to make the move and switch from windows. However i want to still keep windows. I never partitioned my hard drive so i am a little confused. My hard drive already has 4 partitions. I did a google search i read that can i remove the recovery boot after making a backup cd. After that i am a little confused i found many different guides online that say different t04:31
Daniel110hings04:31
Guest32517Doesn't the ubuntu install cd have that option already? @Daniel11004:32
rootyourselfDaniel110: before you do anything MAKE SURE YOU HAVE A BACKUP04:32
rootyourselfwith that many partitions, you are sure to hose something04:32
harushimovery carefully04:32
harushimoI want to do this properly04:32
EliahKaganDaniel110: yes, backups are key when repartitioning especially if you are a novice or rusty or just anyway ;-)04:32
EliahKaganDaniel110: ideally, it might be best to remove a partition that is not bootable, as that is easier to restore properly -- if you have a recovery partition that has a Windows directory in it, that's probably bootable, whereas a "utility" partition is less likely to be bootable04:33
rootyourselfDaniel110: in the past, if all 4 partitions were primary, you would not be able to add more partitions ... not sure if this is still a restriction04:33
Guest32517Only don't make backups if you don't want to keep Windows. :004:33
rootyourselfbut as a consideration, if your system is old enough, you can end up hosing your windows partition scheme04:33
rootyourselfmay not be an issue any more perhaps04:33
EliahKaganwell, you can reinstall windows (if you have installation media or can get it from your OEM) ...you can't reinstall documents that aren't backed up...04:34
xisor_rootyourself: he needs to create restore cds, because by default ubuntu installer will install grub to /dev/sda and he wont be able to boot into the recovery app anymore04:34
harushimoI want to automount the partitino04:34
harushimoI mean partition04:34
harushimohow do I do it through fstab04:34
Guest32517seriously, is there any way to use google payments?04:34
xisor_rootyourself: had that happen on this laptop earlier today as a matter of fact04:34
rootyourselfwhat xisor_ said is correct.  please make sure to do that.04:34
Daniel110Yes i am making the recovery cd later and i read that the recovery parition on windows is just used to create the recovery cds so i guess that once i made them i can delete the partition04:35
EliahKaganGuest32517: the install CD will automatically repartition for you, but not if you already have 4 primary partitions with an MSDOS partition table, because one has to be removed to make an extended partition, to then create logical partitions in; you can't have more than 4 primary partitions with an "MSDOS" partition table04:35
xisor_rootyourself: not like i care personally, ive got windows cds if i ever need to, but for most, yea make those recovery discs04:35
rootyourselfxisor_: i keep on forgetting that the big manufacturers have restore partitions.  i have not bought a windows machine in like 15 years.04:35

HarrisEliahKagan,  i would like to be able to type a straight line down04:47
rootyourselfGuest32517: asus transformer prime.  i've read tegra3 nvidia drivers sucked if they even existed.  i just noticed nvidia released some drivers for the tegra 3 but i'm not about to stuff money in asus pockes to find out i cannot run debian/ubuntu on it realistically.  i am hoping to run into some real world users here. :)04:47
Outlanderthe windows partitons are basic ones too04:47
reisioxisor_: I doubt it'll nuke the recovery partition04:47
EliahKaganreisio: right, but how are you going to create an extended partition to hold logical partitions when you already have 4 primary partitions, without removing a primary partition? the limitation is 4 primary or 3 primary + 1 extended04:47
irong33khow do you get sound preferences -> hardware to detect bluetooth so that i can sync my bluetooth headsets (bh-503)04:47
reisioxisor_: the MBR possibly, but that's of no concern04:47
Outlanderit's just the ubuntu installer in 12.04 (and on the alternate boot cd) do not appear to see any partitions04:47
rigvedOutlander: in the installer, on the partition menu, there is a drop down to select the hard disk. Have you tried that? It will allow you to choose between the SSD and the HDD.04:48
xisor_reisio: it installs grub to the recovery partition by default, so ubuntu wont load, and the recovery wont either04:48
OutlanderI've also tried the previous version of ubuntu but with the same result04:48
xisor_reisio: so someone needs to help them put grub somewhere where it WILL load, such as the windows partition04:48
reisioEliahKagan: oh, got me there04:48
Outlanderthe installer has 2 options, one is wipe everything and the other is something else04:48
rootyourselfEliahKagan: is the 4 primary partitions still an issue?04:48
reisioDaniel110: what's the smallest partition?04:48
xisor_reisio: that is literally the only issue04:48
Outlanderchoosing something else, I get a view with 2 drives both showing no partitions and empty space04:48
xisor_reisio: XD04:48
rigvedOutlander: choose "Something else"04:48
EliahKaganrootyourself: are you asking if that is still a technical limitation for data storage, or if that is still something we're working on for Daniel110 in this channel?04:49
reisioxisor_: no it should install to the space at the beginning reserved for the MBR04:49
xisor_reisio: should be a ~100mb partition labeled windows 7 loader04:49
Outlanderwhereas the Disk Utility will show the disks with all the partitions present04:49
rigvedOutlander: but you said that the Disk Utility of the Live CD is able to see them, right?04:49
irong33khelp needed to synce my bluetooth headsets! bh-50304:49
xisor_reisio: well, the defualt left my windows working and my recovery nuked earlier04:49
xisor_reisio: so it cant go in its default04:49
Outlandercorrect, the disk utility can see everything04:49
reisioxisor_: nuked?04:49
rootyourselfEliahKagan: datastorage.  for some reason i thought that went away as a technical limitation a  while back.04:49
Daniel110reisio: HP_TOOLS04:49
reisioDaniel110: how big?04:50
EliahKaganOutlander: if choosing something else doesn't show your partitions, then try selecting "Try Ubuntu without installing" instead of "Install Ubuntu", then when the desktop comes up run GParted and see what that shows you04:50
rigvedOutlander: create the partitions using the Disk Utility and use them in the installer.04:50
caffinetrying to use ffmpeg to convert an ogg to an mpeg, but i'm getting a blocky result. i've tried changing things like -b and found that 0.5 had a bug that was fixed in 0.6, but i have 0.7. any ideas? i've tried -v codec mpeg2video and mpeg4 as well as -b 5000k  the file size changes, but the quality does not.04:50
xisor_reisio: sorry, inaccesible, unable to load recovery, and ubuntu not loading either04:50
Daniel110103MB all 4 say primary parition04:50
xisor_reisio: the default location for grub was somewhere where it doesnt attempt to boot from04:50
xisor_reisio: which is the recovery partition04:50
reisioxisor_: probably just confused, not destroyed entirely, but who knows04:50
xisor_reisio: it needs to be elsewhere, and that has to be done in the advanced options where you do partitioning04:50
reisioDaniel110: okay, I doubt very much you need hp_tools for anything04:50
OutlanderI have created partitions using Disk Utility but the disks only show up as empty with the installer04:50
reisioDaniel110: dd it to a file backup and delete it04:50
EliahKaganrootyourself: it sort of did ;-) it is a limitation of an MS-DOS partition table (or MS-DOS disklabel as BSD folks call it) -- there are other types of partition tables (like GPT) that don't have this limitation, but you can't change your type of partition table without "erasing" the drive04:50
K1rkWho was chatting with me earlier regarding my VPN issue?04:50
Outlanderthis is a new model inspiron, so maybe it's out of the ordinary04:51
xisor_reisio: /dev/sda2 was where my windows bootloader was, and that is where grub should go04:51
xisor_reisio: devault is /dev/sda1, which is recovery04:51
Daniel110i did a google search and i read that people had some problems after deleting it04:51
xisor_reisio: in my case that is04:51
rootyourselfEliahKagan: thought so. thx for confirmation.04:51
reisioDaniel110: link?04:51
EliahKaganrootyourself: since some OSes and utilities don't (or used to not) have good support for partition table types besides MS-DOS, MS-DOS continues to be used by default by most applications and OEM's, so the silly limitation stays with us even though technology has advanced far beyond needing it04:52
reisioDaniel110: how big are c & d?04:52
rigvedOutlander: possible. create the partitions in Disk Utility. They should show up in the installer. Then, you can use the partitions as-is.04:52
OutlanderI'll give that another try, rigved...04:52
Daniel110c - 581GB  d - 14.35GB04:52

Outlandereven deleting the partitions I had previously (not the win7 partition) causes an error04:53
OutlanderError erasing: helper exited with exit code 1: In part_del_partition: device_file=/dev/sdc, offset=10590617604:53
Daniel110reisio: I have the iso that i used for vbox04:53
Outlanderso I'm guessing the disk utility and ubuntu in general has issues seeing these partition tables?04:53
EliahKaganOutlander: what happens if you create a blank, unformatted new partition in Disk Management in Windows?04:53
OutlanderEliahKagan: have tried that also, creating raw blank partitions in windows04:54
EliahKagani don't know why it isn't seeing them...you could search on Launchpad for bugs about it...04:54
Outlanderbut doesn't seem to be visible in ubuntu installer either04:54
rigvedharushimo: you need to put an entry in /etc/fstab to auto-mount the partition. which type of partition is this? NTFS, EXT4?04:54
EliahKaganOutlander: what happened when you did that?04:54
EliahKaganhuh04:54
EliahKagandarn04:54
wa5qjhFrom inside windoze you can try EasyBCD to manage your partitions. I have Win-7, Ubuntu-11.04 and PCBSD 9.0 running for me right now. not simultaneous of course ..04:54
harushimoext404:54
OutlanderIt's like whatever windows does to the partition table confuses linux04:54
harushimoI did a label to the partition called virtual04:54
harushimohow do I put the entry in04:55
EliahKaganOutlander: i think trying EasyBCD as wa5qjh suggests may help04:55
EliahKaganalso are you making sure to shut down Windows cleanly?04:55
rigvedharushimo: gksudo gedit /etc/fstab04:55
Outlanderand I can't install linux then windows, as linux booter will be wiped...maybe I can do a ubuntu repair after that and get back to square with 2 OSes dual booting?04:55
harushimoI'm in the file04:55
Outlandereasybcd04:55
Outlanderok cool, thanks heaps, I'll give that  go04:55
EliahKaganOutlander: yes, if you want you can do that, it's easy to reinstall the GRUB2 boot loader after the MBR gets overwritten by a new Windows installation04:55
harushimoI'm in the file04:55
harushimoI did that command04:56
reisioDaniel110: okay, well04:56
Outlanderok will install linux first, then windows, then easybcd from there to dual boot?04:56
EliahKaganOutlander: but if you try EasyBCD or viewing the partitions in GParted first, that can save time and effort, especially since you already have the Windows system installed04:56
reisioDaniel110: you can dd the partition to a file to make a backup04:56
harushimorigved: what's the next step04:56
reisioDaniel110: and save a copy of the partition layout for good measure04:56
wa5qjhEasyBCD has also helped my recover a windows partition after hosing it up with other OS's.04:56
harushimoI mean putting in the entry?04:56
rigvedharushimo: sudo blkid04:56
Outlanderwindows install is base install, havent installed anything after it was run up04:56
Daniel110reisio: I would i do that?04:56
reisioDaniel110: then you can either use http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&docname=c00810279 or just reformat that partition after resizing during Ubuntu install04:56
rigvedharushimo: type that in another terminal04:56
reisioDaniel110: just in case you want it later, it's small so it won't take long at all04:56
harushimoI did that04:57
Outlanderok so I have windows installed but not linux currenty. Advice is to run easybcd in windows now and carve up the partitions with it ready for linux install?04:57
wa5qjh And , I might mention PCBSD folks are having some troubles with nvidia drivers as well.04:57
harushimowhats blkid?04:57
Daniel110reiso: After i remove the recovery what should i do?04:57
rigvedharushimo: do you see the partition that you want to auto-mount?04:57
Outlandercan it "sanitise" the partition table to be viewable by linux while preserving windows?04:57
harushimoit hasn't showed up at all04:57
rigvedharushimo: in the output of blkid?04:57
harushimono I don't see it04:58
harushimoI did sudo blkid04:58
harushimois that right?04:58
rigvedharushimo: can you pastebin the output of "sudo blkid"?04:58
reisioDaniel110: delete the hp_tools partition and resize C: to make room to install Ubuntu, then install normally _to that empty space_04:58
reisioDaniel110: it'll ask you whether you want to keep windows or not, etc.04:58
harushimoI don't have anything to paste04:58
harushimolet me try one thing04:58
harushimosudo blkid >> output.txt file, could this work?04:59
rigvedharushimo: yes.04:59
reisioDaniel110: defrag the filesystems from Windows before resizing and it'll be more likely to go off without a hitch04:59
reisioDaniel110: if it's a new box it should be virtually entirely defragged already04:59
harushimoits working04:59
Daniel110reisio: defrag?04:59
harushimothis is taking a while04:59
rigvedharushimo: it will take a few seconds05:00
harushimoso far nothing05:00
reisioDaniel110: yeah :)05:00
reisioDaniel110: is it a new computer?05:01
Daniel110reisio: ah sorry what does it mean?05:01
Daniel110reisio: 1 year old05:01
reisioah, then you definitely want to make sure it's defragged05:01
reisioDaniel110: what version of Windows/05:01
the_hulkhi thr, i am planning to switch to 12.405:01
Daniel110705:01
=== rob is now known as Guest57947
reisiookay that'll save you some time05:01
rigvedharushimo: odd. so, there are no partitions on this disk?05:01
=== icxcnika is now known as fn-troll
harushimorigved: its only one partition05:02
harushimoit has no mount point05:02
harushimoI have 4 partitions on my 160 but not the 1 tb05:02
reisioDaniel110: from Computer, right click on C:, Properties, Tools > Defragment now05:02
rigvedharushimo: can you see the partition in "disk utility"?05:02
the_hulki want to format and then install new one, i want to make sure my sw configuration remains the same after install05:02
Daniel110what does that do?05:02
the_hulkany suggestions?05:02
reisioDaniel110: do this immediately before you resize, when you're done using Windows for the time being05:02
harushimoI do see the partition in nautilus under Devices05:02
reisioDaniel110: over time (especially with file systems like NTFS [Windows' file system]), files get cluttered around on the disk, leaving unusable gaps05:03
reisioDaniel110: taking up more space than they need to05:03
rigvedharushimo: ok. can you access it when you click on it in nautilus?05:03
harushimono I can't05:03
reisioDaniel110: defragmenting reorganizes them so they're all side by side, so all the empty space is at the end05:04
harushimoI can't access the lost+found directory at all05:04
reisioDaniel110: which in turn makes resizing simpler/safer05:04
harushimoit says I don't have permissions05:04
reisioDaniel110: although the only way to be 100% safe is to have a complete backup05:04
harushimowhen I'm the admin of my own computer05:04
rigvedharushimo: that is normal. lost+found is only accessible by root.05:04
harushimothere is nothing on hard drive05:04
Daniel110k05:04
rigvedharushimo: it is reserved for the filesystem. you should not try to access it.05:04
harushimook05:05
harushimowhat if I try to create a folder05:05
harushimolet me see what happens05:05
EliahKaganharushimo: indeed, lost+found is where recovered files (from fsck) go on ext* partitions, only root can access it because any files, or even a recovered /etc/shadow (with password hashes), could end up there05:05
rigvedharushimo: you can outside of lost+found05:05
EliahKaganharushimo: i mean, you can access it with sudo, but you shouldn't unless you know you need to05:05
harushimook05:06
harushimoi'm getting a little tired. I'll try this in the morning05:06
Daniel110what if i want to use wubi, how easy would it be to transfer files/data/applications/settings?05:06
harushimoI want to get this working05:07
Daniel110when i make a real install05:07
harushimothanks everyone05:07
rootyourselfharushimo: it sounds like the system is mounting the partition for you as root because you were mucking about with it in gparted05:07
reisioDaniel110: it'd be easy to transfer from Ubuntu to Windows, IIRC05:08
reisioDaniel110: I'm not sure how you'd do the reverse, but it's certainly possible05:08
rootyourselfthere is a fix for that, i forget what it is.  but one thing you might be able to do is unmount it via nautilus, create a folder for it and do mount /dev/partitionnumber /foldername and it should mount as your user05:08
reisioI mean you can transfer files from Windows onto Ubuntu's file systems _from_ Ubuntu of course05:08

MidComArghwhy, god, why05:48
rigvedOccupyDemonoid: put in a Ubuntu CD and also the USB. then, during the installation procedure, tell the partition manager to install to the USB. install GRUB also to the USB. that will work.05:48
wa5qjhAh, so des.  well somebody else is gonna have to help you with that then. Sorry.05:48
rootyourselfthere is someone online that installed 32 os's on a single hd05:48
rootyourselfi've seen live cds with multiple windows versions05:48
rootyourselfno clue how to create them tho05:48
OccupyDemonoidrigved, alright. I will try that right now. Thank you.05:48
rootyourselfhowever, it will be similar to creating a dual boot setup, you will need to make the usb drive bootable and have something like grub pointing to all the different os's05:49
rigvedOccupyDemonoid: make sure you select "Something else" in the partition manager during the install. then create the partitions on the USB (one for / and one for swap at aleast). also, select to install the bootloader (GRUB) on the USB.05:49
rootyourselfthere you go, that looks right05:50
OccupyDemonoidrigved, would that format the drive?05:50
wjcwcan somebody run "gconftool-2 -g /apps/metacity/general/titlebar_font" -- unity 2d seems to mess with this and I'm curoius as to what the default is on 12.04 LTS05:50
rigvedOccupyDemonoid: you can control that from the partition manager. but yes, you will have to format some of the drive at least for the / and swap partitions.05:51
OccupyDemonoidrigved, alright. Sweet, thank you. :)05:51

gio3505what now? i just dont have the option to select kubuntu in the drop down box for desktop environments in wubi. only gives me ubuntu as an option.06:46
skydromeiceroot_, would the bug report site be a good place to discuss if ubuntu could make it report 4.6.0 instead of 4.6 or another channel maybe?06:46

Epznsfwhi everyone I'm having some issues updating some packages on ubuntu, it's actually stuck with libssl1.0.0, whenever i try to run apt-get install --reinstall libssl1.0.0 i get a permission denied error on /var/lib/dpkg/info/libssl1.0.0:i386.postrm   and /var/lib/dpkg/tmp.ci/postrm  with dpkg error status 206:55
Epznsfw +  is there any way to fix it ? (sorry I hit enter lol)06:56
Frank-N-Steenace7, grub was probablt put in the usb instead of the HD, you run the  bootscript yet?06:56
Frank-N-Steen*probably06:56
flowerpotEpznsfw, permission denied makes me think you should try again with sudo.06:56
killerhi ...i recently ran vmware.bundle and when i try to run vmware player ...it says kernel modules not compiled06:56
Epznsfwflowerpot, at apt-get install? I did06:58
EpznsfwI actually never ran it without sudo06:58
flowerpotEpznsfw, then I'm afraid I don't know :(06:58
ace7what is bootscript? I'm new to linux, right now my os is ubuntu and I want to install win7 and then I want to install ubuntu as duall boot06:58
Epznsfwflowerpot, thanks for trying06:58
Frank-N-Steenace7, does the ubuntu on the computer boot without the usb?06:59
Frank-N-Steenace7, the bootscript is a script for debugging boot problems07:00
ace7yup, ubuntu is on hd07:00
ace7how to do bootscript?07:00

What was canonical expecting with that Unity shit! Next news, ubuntu will be dropped from the top 10 list then Canonical will open their eyes to the reality. In Opensource-spere, you must give back to the community. Its the only way to survive.Fuck you Unity developers07:17

Guest91471Is it easy to run Ubuntu 12.04 server from RAM without a hard disk??07:58
fyodorovnaibm, have you seen 12.04 it has a completely different desktop.08:00
Guest91471Sorry if I'm intruding, but is there a way to run Ubuntu 12.04 server from RAM ?08:00
mbalmerg'day!08:02
Guest91471hi balmer08:02
matthewLGuest91471: if you run from live cd, that's ram, right?08:02
EaglemanWhy would you run ubuntu from ram, since every settings you make will be gone after a restart or power loss08:02
Guest91471That's exactly why I want to eagle08:03
mbalmerwith 12.04 I can do a user autologin.  But can I also set a delay, during which it would be possible to interrupt the autologin and login as a different user?  In gdm3, that is possible, fwiw.08:03
Guest91471matt: i hope so08:03
Guest91471but I can't figure out how with the server08:03
Eaglemanwhy not run it in virtual box to test things out08:03
Guest91471Since Ubuntu 12.04 Server only provides the option of installation, how to live CD ?08:05

Daraelhuttan: I do not have a /etc/X11/xorg.conf - this was one of the first places I looked.  And anyway, Ubuntu uses lightdm these days, and Upstart too, so it'd be sudo restart lightdm.09:02
huttanu getting the point...there has to be a conf file09:02
Daraelhuttan: No, there doesn't.  More modern versions of X autoconfigure, and /etc/X11/xorg.conf is only for overrides if they prove necessary.  And none of this explains why the GNOME keyboard-layout configuration tool has absolutely no effect.09:04
huttanyou check the logs ?09:05
DaraelYup.09:05

rrajhowto mkdir and chmod in a ssingle command?09:07
Abhijitrraj, mkdir && chmod09:07
huttanxisor: yeah09:07
rrajNope @Abhijit.. i want something like sudo mkdir 777 /projects/09:07
Abhijitits obvious isnt it09:08
Abhijitrraj, on short you write whatever command you want there and just put && in between two commands.09:08
Abhijitthats how you run two commands in single line09:08
Abhijitin*09:08
Daraelrraj: sudo mkdir -m a=rwx /projects09:09
xisorhuttan: http://paste.ubuntu.com/1009372/09:09
xisorreplaced username and password obviously:P cant be too careful09:09
rrajThanks Abhijit and Dareal.09:09
rraj:)09:10
harshadi want to install ubuntu 12.04 on my desktp but installion won't proceed,,,,i have nvidia graphics card 2gb...is it creating problem for my installation...????09:10
Daraelrraj: "man mkdir" isn't much help, but it does point to "info coreutils 'mkdir invocation'", which is where I got that, for future reference.09:10
huttanrraj: remember && has a check that commands are successful09:10
IronSightI went to install the upgrade and it's giving me some heat over gnome-session... http://www.zimagez.com/zimage/screenshot-05272012-040701am.php09:10
IronSighttrying to get on the new LTS09:10
Abhijitharshad, at which point it is stuck? do you meet the hardware requirement?09:10
saryharshad: try a kernel boot option from the live-cd to pass to the desktop and install.09:10
xisorhuttan: is my syntax wrong or somethin?09:10
xisorhuttan: does it wait to connect to my wireless network before attempting to mount those?09:11
Daraelharshad: "installation won't proceed".  At what point, is there an error message, and do you have any particular reason to suspect the graphics card?09:11
Abhijithelp. getting error (gnome-tweak-tool:7472): GLib-GIO-ERROR **: Settings schema 'org.gnome.shell.extensions.user-theme' is not installed while trynig to run gnome tweak tool!09:11
saryAbhijit: install the extension then ..09:11
IronSightsince I am running xubuntu, if I rip out all the gnome-shell stuff, will that fix that error?09:12
Abhijitsary, https://extensions.gnome.org/extension/19/user-themes/ says i already had it installed.09:12
harshadat very start installion won't proceed..don't give any error message but screenn remains as it is....???09:12
Daraelxisor: As I recall, there's a mount option which notes that something's a network filesystem and makes it wait until there's a network available before it tries to mount it.  Hang on while I look it up.09:13
xisorDarael: ok, can you give me a paste with edited syntax after you do?09:13
xisorDarael: so i can edit the 14 entries i have in my fstab?09:13
Abhijitharshad, press any key?09:13
Daraelxisor: add _netdev to the mount options (the same field as you have username=username,password=password in)09:14
harshadAbhijit :won't work...09:14
xisorDarael: where do i add it exactly?09:14
xisorDarael: before or after username and password?09:14
saryAbhijit: Alrigh , on the same page look in the comment by peacewithall .. execute those commands logout/back in and then restart the tool .09:15
xisorDarael: do i just add ,_netdev after the password?09:15
Daraelxisor: Shouldn't matter, but I'd put it first.  _netdev,username=username,password=password09:15
IronSightno one had this issue spring up on the upgrade? http://www.zimagez.com/zimage/screenshot-05272012-040701am.php09:15
harshadsary:how to enter kernal boot option..>!!!09:15
xisorDarael: ok, and is it case sensitive when connecting to windows shares?09:15
xisorDarael: if so how do i figure out the correct capitalisation/09:15
saryharshad: you're booting to the live-cd , right ..09:16
Abhijitsary, that gives me No such file or directory error cause as suggested on one ubuntu forum post i delted local/share/gnome-shell/extnesions09:16
Daraelxisor: I don't know off the top of my head, sorry.  As I recall, the machine name should be all lowercase... but I'd have to look up the exact syntax and where it's case-sensitive if at all.09:16
xisorDarael: oh ok09:16
saryAbhijit: do you happen to have installed the extension from a ppa !09:17
xisoris the rest of my syntax correct?09:17
Abhijitsary, nope09:17
Daraelxisor: Seems to be, yes.09:18
xisorDarael: this is my first day using linux XD09:18
xisorDarael: sorry if i asked a dumb question09:18
saryAbhijit: ok , so now after you removed the extension dir .. what happen when you install and trun the user-etension ON .09:18
IronSightIs the ubuntu upgrader broken?09:19
saryharshad: Are you able to reach the installer menu from the live-cd ..09:19
morsnowskiIronSight, why?09:19
IronSightmorsnowski, http://www.zimagez.com/zimage/screenshot-05272012-040701am.php09:19
Abhijitsary, to turn the user extensin on i need to go insdie the tweak tool but tweak tool wont launch at all09:19
saryIronSight: it could be in your system .09:20
IronSightI just tried to do a dist upgrade, and it throws me that09:20
harshadsary:hm09:20
mcloyhow to restart samba, my windows machine shares are not showing up09:20
Abhijitsary, i will solve this later. thank you for your time. i need to go for lunch. bye09:21
Daraelxisor: Nono, not at all.  Good on you for trying - this is rather more ambitious than most people try on their first day, and it seems very close to working.  I am impressed.  Although I note that having your Windows box's root filesystem exposed on the network, with the username and password in a world-readable plain-text file on another machine, is probably not the best idea security-wise.09:21
morsnowskifrom what version are you trying to upgrade?09:21
saryAbhijit: well , tuern the extension to ON from the extension.org , then run those commands posted by the user i mentioned , logout/back in then run the tweak-tool again .09:21
IronSightumm... I think the last LTS, but lemme check09:21
xisorDarael: anyone can access my fstab?09:21
IronSight11.1009:21
saryharshad: at what point are you stack in the live-cd .. what screen do you see .09:22
IronSightmorsnowski, 11.1009:22
Daraelxisor: Anyone with access to that machine, yes.  Try using a credentials file instead.09:22
xisorDarael: its read only access btw, so they can only view my files nothing more, even if they got in09:22
mcloyhow to restart samba, my windows machine shares are not showing up09:22
xisorDarael: im the only one with access to either machine, this is a local network in my house :P09:22
morsnowskithat's no lts, did you check the thngs that your error message showed?09:23
saryharshad: i must aske if you did md5 test the iso before burnning to media .09:23
Daraelxisor: I work too much with larger networks.  Of course it is.  Well, I can try to prod people into forming good habits early, or something... :P09:23
xisorDarael: figured it was easier to network access my files on this new linux install than migrate all of my hard drives and files to do it the other way around?09:23
morsnowskiIronSight, that's no lts, did you check the thngs that your error message showed?09:23
harshadsary:after welcome screen of ubuntu black screen comes and remains as it is even cursor doesn't works..09:24
IronSightmorsnowski, you think if I remove all gnome 3 components then it might work?09:24
Eaglemanhow to remove every single package of bacula?09:24
morsnowskiwell at leats take it off the blacklist09:24
IronSightit was complaining about gnome-session being marked for removal09:24
xisorDarael: not like my file server has any stability issues or anything, it doesnt even have internet access its local network only XD09:24
amageehey does anyone have any hints for getting dual displays working on ubuntu 12.04 with an amd/ati graphics card?09:24
mcloy is there a way not to install kde (remove it) but run dolphin or xchat or a video (just these applications) and do all work at command line?09:24
xisorDarael: but changing it over to linux seems complicated for a noob:P09:24
Daraelxisor: If you need to have two machines, one on each OS, yes, it is.  Almost certainly.  Configuring SAMBA the /other/ way around is not hard, but is definitely hard/er/.09:24
IronSightmorsnowski, can you remind me where the blacklist is located, it's been a while since I played with that09:25
amageeif i try to do it with the gnome "displays" control panel app I get "required virtual size does not fit available size: requested=(3840, 1080), minimum=(320, 200), maximum=(1920, 1920)"09:25
mbalmeris robert_ancell online here often?09:25
morsnowski:) same here i have to look that up09:25
xisorDarael: im trying to learn linux so i can do a buncha cool stuff id have to pay tons of money to do in windows XD09:25
saryharshad: this is in the live-cd , right !09:25
amageeif i try to do it with amdcccle it just crashes as soon as tell the monitors not to be mirrored09:25
Daraelxisor: Good motivation.  I approve.  Do /eventually/ think about migrating that server, since the server is where *nix (including Linux) really shines.  It's good on the desktop, but it's great on the server.09:26
harshadsary:live usb09:26
xisorDarael: correct me if im wrong but i need to go sudo mkdir all my mount points too right?09:26
mcloyis my text visible to anyone?09:26
IronSightmorsnowski, I just checked like /etc/apt... don't see one there09:26
xisorsudo mkdir /mnt/windows/C is correct syntax yes? Darael ?09:27
Daraelxisor: Correct.  You can do that all in one if they're under /mnt with "sudo mkdir /mnt/{mountpoint1,mountpoint2,mountpoint3}" syntax, by the way.09:27
xisorDarael: neat, thanks thats helpful info09:27
Daraelxisor: And there's the ever-useful -p flag to mkdir, which makes it create any necessary parent directories in a single command.09:27
xisorDarael: im trying to learn, hope im doing ok so far09:27
morsnowskiIronSight, you could always just remove it manually and then run the upgrade09:27
Daraelxisor: Seems so to me.09:27
IronSightsounds like a plan morsnowski09:28
* IronSight pulls up synaptic09:28
xisorDarael: i  need to paste my new things in and mkdir my mnt points, will you be here after i reboot?09:28
saryharshad: Alright , when you see the BIOS screen , which is the firt black screen you'll see when booting , after that screen keep pressing SHIFT till you see the GURB bootloader screen .09:28
Daraelxisor: I should be.  Just mention my name when you get back, I'll get a popup.  See you on the other side.09:28
Chelllol09:29
harshadsary:then...???09:29
DaraelI upgraded to Precise, and now my keyboard layout settings seem to have no effect; everything's stuck in the system keyboard setting, which doesn't have, eg, compose key, caps-lock-as-backspace, layout-switching options...09:30

xisor_smbfs appears to be incorrect type syntax09:35
Daraelxisor_: The command is pastebinit, but IIRC you have to install the pastebinit package first.  Then the syntax is "command | pastebinit".  Just a sec, I'll have a look.09:35

morsnowskijavier__, how about ctrl-alt d09:38
harshadsary:on pressing e another menu won't come....09:38
Daraelxisor_: Run "sudo apt-get install smbfs" for me and try again?  The file manager uses gvfs to access samba shares, and that's not easily available to the system at FS mount time.09:38
xisor_smbfs is installed09:38
xisor_should i reboot?09:38
Daraelxisor_: Should be no need.09:38
xisor_Darael: if i want the shares to mount a reboot is needed? or will it mount them on its own now?09:39
javier__msnowski, nothing happens with ctrl + alt + d09:39
Daraelxisor_: Did you just install it?  If so, try a "mount -a" again.09:39
javier__morsnowski, nothing happens with ctrl + alt + d09:39
xisor_device or resource busy09:39
Daraelxisor_: "mount -a" will mount everything that should mount at boot time, there's no need to reboot.09:39

planeticHi! I trying to install the ATI proprietary driver to ubuntu 12.10 32bit and people on the web said that it is impossible to do with 3.2.x linux kernel. How to downgrade to 3.0.0 kernel without downgrading whole system&09:40
morsnowskijavier__, you can always look it up in ccsm :)09:41
javier__ok09:41
saryharshad: which tool did you used to make a bootable usb , and have you md5 test the iso before making the bootable stick !09:41
morsnowskiit is under general options and you can set it any which way you like09:41
javier__in what submenu of ccsm?09:41
Daraelxisor_: Looks like it's trying to use the mountpoints for something else.  A reboot may work, therefore, although it's highly unusual to need a reboot for things other than kernel upgrades to take in the linux world, so there's probably another way.09:41
javier__because i feel i bit idiot with this simple think, easy to do y previews versions of ubuntu09:42
xisor_Darael: i will reboot and see if they mount09:42
sary!md5sum > harshad09:42
ubottuharshad, please see my private message09:42
xisor_Darael: be right back09:42
IronSightplanetic, I would say... install an older version of ubuntu....09:42
IronSightif that was the only way to make that driver work09:42
planeticIronSight: and there is no way to do downgrade only the kernel?09:43
saryplanetic: dont you have an older kernel version entry showing in GRUB bootloader menu .09:43
IronSightwell, I guess you could download the sources to an old kernel and compile them yourself from kernel.org, but that's a HUGE PAIN09:44
Daraelplanetic: Short of compiling your own, no, there isn't.  And compiling your own may cause a problem.  Hang on, 12.10?  You're running the development version, Quantal?  That's going to cause trouble.09:44
xisorDarael: and we have mounted drives09:44
xisorDarael: why would it have been busy before?09:44
xisorDarael: looks like i was just missing smbfs!09:44
morsnowskiplanetic, you could try something like "sudo dpkg -i linux-image-2.6.38-10-generic_2.6.38-10.46_i386.deb" not 100% it works on 12.04 though09:44
planeticDarael: Ok, thank you.09:45
Daraelxisor: Glad to hear it's working.  The old mount thread was probably trying to access the mountpoint, rendering them busy.  We could have found out, but a reboot seemed faster than diagnosing and sorting it while live.09:45
xisorim on 12.04 and i have AMD drivers on 3.2.0-2409:45
xisorso whoever told you that was apparently wrong09:45
xisor60fps in tuxracer and 1900fps in glxgears confirms it09:46
morsnowskiplanetic, that worked on 11.10 but i never tried it on anything newer than that09:46
xisorno way this cpu can manage that without acceleration09:46
Daraelplanetic: Are the proprietary drivers available in the "additional drivers" tool?  If so, use those rather than the ones from the website.  Guaranteed to work.09:46
xisorso my ati driver is working fine on 3.2 kernel09:46
IronSightxisor, you have a sandybridge?09:46
amageedoes anyone know how to uninstall the proprietary ati drivers from an ubuntu 12.04 system?09:47
xisorIronSight: i do but linux isnt on it, its on an amd athlon II dual core 2ghz09:47

planeticmornowski: I will let you know if it worked09:48
* IronSight runs a sandybridge i7 on his laptop09:48
xisorplanetic:  you dont need a kernel downgrade to use ati video drivers09:48
xisorplanetic: im doing it right now on 12.04 with the 3.2 kernel09:48
Daraelamagee: "sudo apt-get purge fglrx*", perhaps?09:48
xisorIronSight: sandy bridge 6 core on my gaming pc, not going to bother installing linux on it, i dont do anything in linux that requires that kind of power09:49
Daraelamagee: That's if installed from the "additional drivers" tool, no idea if they're from the website.09:49

pie_How can I remove Zeitgeist? I'm using the classic GUI, no need for Unity.09:50
planeticxisor: i can't install them. I get the "DKMS part of installation failed".09:50
Daraelxisor: I don't know, but I know the catalyst control center is in the repos, so I assume so.  I've always had nvidia cards and/or intel chipsets, not much experience with ati on Linux.09:50
alFReD-NSHwhich package is for ncurses?09:50
IronSightxisor, oh, well, if you ever get into compiling apps, that 6 core would be very useful ^_^ use make -j1309:51

DaraelDarkSim: It's possible.  Why not do it and see what answer you get?  (I'm sorry, I don't know why, but I couldn't resist)09:54
hk19To windows09:54
Daraelhk19: Try holding shift immediately after POST.09:55
xisorDarael: his recovery partition messed with the bootloader, he needs help switching grub over to /dev/sda2 most likely09:55
xisordefault location grub installs to is the recovery partition09:55
xisorDarael: which isnt loaded by the laptop, the windows partition is09:55
DarkSimSince I thought latest Ubuntu would just find my Wacom Bamboo Pen & Touch, since it has its own settings in the system settings, but to no avail, it does not detect my Tablet09:55
xisorDarael:  i dont know enough to help him fix it though09:55
amageeok still stuck re. multiple monitors: i tried uninstalling the proprietary ati driver so i'm back to the open source one.  i can't unmirror the displays using the gnome control panel's "displays" app (required virtual size does not fit available size: requested=(3840, 1080), minimum=(320, 200), maximum=(1920, 1920))09:56
hk19Let me try09:56
Daraelxisor: Ah.  Hmm, don't think he wants to move grub to /dev/sda2; chainloading it from NTLDR is much nastier than the other way around.  But I can't get involved, I have to go.09:56
hk19Thanks09:56
amageeand trying to actuall install the proprietary driver doesn't even work either09:56
xisorDarael: well, i cant really help, someone will be able to help him though09:57
xisorDarael: thanks for helping me with my smb shares09:57
dz0nyamagee: use the amd/nvidia control panel to switch off mirroring09:57
amageedz0ny: i can't use the amd control panel since i can't install the amd proprietary driver09:58
DarkSimSo I guess it's rather doomed, eh?09:58
dz0nyamagee: ok, are you trying to install via jockey manager or via command line?09:59
dz0nyamagee: try sudo apt-get purge fglrx*09:59
amageei'm not sure what "jockey manager" is.. is that the app that's called "additional drivers"?09:59
ikoniaamagee: that's it09:59
Milos_SDhello...09:59
amageeyeah i used that09:59
dz0nyand then sudo apt-get install fglrx09:59
amageeok09:59
amageepurging first09:59
amageei just dream of a day when upgrading ubuntu won't break my display :P10:00
dz0nyyeah  it doesn’t work properly via additional drivers10:00
dz0nyamagee: me too :)10:01
morsnowskiguys stop complaining, what else would you do on sunny sunday afternoon10:02
amageedo i need to reboot between installing fglrx and running amdcccle?10:02
amageei'm guessing yes10:02
dz0nyamagee: yes10:02
amageeok10:02
Milos_SDi have some pc here with intel i945 chipset and 2160 cpu... ubuntu 8.10 starts fine, but anything newer gets kernel panic with some mce error (processor context corruption).... what can that be?10:02

Milos_SDintel pentium dc e216010:04
Milos_SDyes 32 bit10:04
Milos_SDi didn't try 64bit (1gb of ram)10:05
morsnowskigabriele93, yes10:05
amageedz0ny: ok, i rebooted but now amdcccle crashes whenever i try to unmirror the monitors and hit apply10:06
gabriele93morsnowski, how?10:06
morsnowskisudo apt-get install gnome10:06
morsnowskiMilos_SD, that chip can do 64 bit10:06
Milos_SDi have tried with "nomce" kernel optio, but it just restarts then, without kernel panic10:06

amageedz0ny: i mean can i just turn the monitor off instead of unplugging it10:24
Eaglemanme Aspire10:25
morsnowskihmm you can do that by hand over nautilus or you script it10:25
IronSightrraj umm stereo mix input to the mic?10:25
AspireYes can just turn off the monitor10:25
IronSightbut that would cause like, echoing if they talked10:25
pbx2Aspire, Ubuntu 12.02 LTS on 2d unity right now10:25
rrajYes IronSight10:25
dz0nyamagee: no you must unplig it because pc still senses monitor in suspend mode10:25
amageeok10:25
dz0nyunplug*10:25
rrajit doesnt matter IronSight, I just want to play a song over the call10:26
Aspireumm?10:26
AspireWhat version of Ubuntu do you use?10:26
IronSightrraj. play around with your recording mixer10:26
EaglemanDisk /dev/sdb doesn't contain a valid partition table10:26
rrajYeah, Alsa Mixer you mean?10:26
amageedz0ny: did that, didn't help10:27
IronSightrraj, if that's what you use, I use something that came with xubuntu10:27
Eaglemanmkfs -t ext3 /dev/sdb10:27
EaglemanProceed anyway? (y,n) YES10:27
Aspire中文10:27
amageei can open amdcccle, but when i try to unmirror the monitors and hit Apply, it still crashes10:27
rrajIronSight: I should check.. its been a long while i started tweaking ubuntu10:27
rrajsearched online, but couldnt find anything helpful10:28
IronSightI know in windows it's pretty easy to do10:28
IronSightin linux I would just host a shoutcast/icecast server lol10:28
morsnowskirraj, if you click on your speaker icon you should have sound settings and in there are applications currently playing10:29
pbx2!resize10:30
JancooverIs there any program for Ubuntu that supports RAR archives?10:30
IronSightman, it's going to take another 3 hours to finish this upgrade, should have bought an SSD10:30
LjL!info unrar | Jancoover10:30
ubottuJancoover: unrar (source: unrar-nonfree): Unarchiver for .rar files (non-free version). In component multiverse, is optional. Version 1:4.0.3-1 (precise), package size 104 kB, installed size 260 kB10:30
blackshirtJancoover, unrar10:30
Jancooverthank you guys10:30
pbx2Jancoover, I thought 7zip also supported that?10:30
dz0nyamagee: sorry I don't have more ideas why it doesn't work you can try manually setting xorg.conf, for example this is mine http://paste.ubuntu.com/1009466/10:30
AspireWhy does some RAR cannot be opened?10:31
morsnowskiJancoover, just type rar into the software center10:31
dz0nyalso dual screen10:31
dz0nythe only thin that you should adyust  are resolution and display ports crt ,dfi10:31
IronSightJancoover, if you get the basic rar and 7z apps, the archive manager can use them10:31
amageeok, will try10:31
pbx2I want to resize the Ubuntu partition and make it smaller. I assigned it too much space. How do I do that?10:32
OutlanderHi, solved my dual boot issues using EasyBCD10:32
blackshirtPbx2, you can use gparted through  live cd10:32
IronSightpbx2, make a gparted cd10:32
hk19Jancoover, ubuntu will automatically download   necessary files10:32
OutlanderSo all was fine, was installing stuff and had a lock up. Now when I boot into linux, I just see a bright blue screen. It has logged into X but doesn't appear to be loading the desktop manager10:32
Outlanderwhat might I dpkg --reinstall to resolve this?10:33
pbx2and then just drag to make it smaller? It wonk nuke my files right?10:33
pbx2*wont10:33
pie_How can I remove Zeitgeist? I'm using the classic GUI, no need for Unity.10:33
IronSightOutlander, can you ctrl+alt+f1 to get to a terminal?10:33
ksian1how often does Ubuntu sync the time over the Internet?10:33
amageedz0ny: any hints as to what the display ports would be if i am using two DVI ports?10:33
Outlanderyeah that's what I'm in now10:34
blackshirtPbx2, yeah...gparted works great for me,but maybe you want backup your data10:34
IronSightOutlander, did it ask for a username and password to get to that non-window managed desktop?10:34
OutlanderI can even log out of x to the login page again and even guest login goes blue and doesn't load anything. I can hit ctrl-alt-del to log out, back to login screen10:34
Outlanderyeah username and password page is working10:34
pbx2blackshirt, ok thanks I will try10:35
IronSightOutlander, on that login page, can you setup the session?10:35
IronSightmost XDM clones let you select the session (window manager/desktop enviroment)10:35
Outlanderwill try...10:35
blackshirtPbx2, backup was important step you should do...lost your data was your risk10:35
Outlanderok I can switch between regular and 2d gnome, the icon for it is missing though10:36
IronSightif you don't have one on the list, then install one, relog, and it should show on the list of sessions10:36
Outlander2d logs in with the same blue screen but with the gnome bar along the top, so can log out using it10:36
ManDayHello, this is not really an ubuntu question but you guys always know everything, so please be kind: Where is the mailcap files canonically documented?10:36
IronSightlike try to install xfce10:36
IronSightOutlander, might be a video driver issue?10:36
dz0nyamagee: DFPx x is the internal number, I forget which tool displays connected ports and their internal names (i'am googling it now :))10:37
Outlanderuninstall proprietry ati driver?10:37
pbx2is there a way to move the top bar (with start menu etc.) to the bottom, like in windows? (using Unitiy interface 12.02)10:37
morsnowskiOutlander, first I'd do is go to a terminal session and run sudo apt-get update, sudo apt-get upgrade and sudo apt-get install -f10:37
Outlanderapt-get shows packages all appear to be in order10:37
Jancooverwhat on earth is my problem?when I extract files from RAR archives they do not appear in the target folder10:38
saryOutlander: I'd look in ~/.sessions-errors , and might reconfigure X .10:38
Outlandercheers, will try now10:39
dz0ny@amagee: you can try generating aticonfig --initial=dual-head10:39
sm_hello everybody10:40
IronSighthello10:40
dz0nyand then copying values from thhere10:40
Outlanderit's trying to load a png and says unrecognised image file format10:40

Eaglemanso i finally made a partition and formatted it as ext 310:40

amageedz0ny: * 0. 01:00.0 ATI Radeon HD 5700 Series10:41
eutheriadoes anyone here use sssd to cache user details fro ldap? and have weird issues with pam and local users?10:41
amageeand * - Default adapter10:41
saryOutlander: it's also possible tha the proprietry graphic driver is causing this .. try the open-source one and see how it goes.10:42
Eaglemanall it shows is linux10:42
Eaglemannot ext3 or ext4 or something10:42
pbx2I want to try Win8 via dual boot (without virtualbox etc). do I need to be worried about it overwriting the boot menu (grub boot loader?) which has Ubuntu in the start?10:42
IronSightpbx2, yes10:42
Outlanderany main package I can install or reinstall to drag the rest through that might be missing?10:42
dz0nyamagee: do you have HD 570010:42
dz0ny?10:42
IronSightpbx2, create a grub live cd to fix it when it does10:42
amageedz0ny: yes10:43
pbx2IronSight, and then I can have win 7, win 8, and ubuntu. right?10:43
dz0nyamagee: me too10:43
IronSightsure, if you setup your partitions like that10:43
dz0nyyou can use that config directly10:43
IronSightjust be prepared to fix your MBR10:44
eitchhi guys, what happened to dnotify? Has it been superseded by inotifywatch?10:44
amageehmm let me log out one more time10:44
pbx2IronSight, how would I go about fixing my MBR? the grub live cd won't do it for me?10:44
IronSightpbx2, it will, just educate yourself on how to do it10:45
Eaglemanblackshirt, i want to have a command that shows me wich file systems harddisks uses like ext3 ext 410:45
blackshirtEicth, yes, i think..dnotify was obsoleted by inotify framework10:45
saryEagleman: mount , should show10:45
IronSight:)10:45
blackshirtEagleman, issue mount command10:45
pbx2IronSight, oh and right now the partitions are like this: Win  7, Ubuntu. I am going to make empty space at the end (Gparted gui), so then it would be Win 7, Ubuntu, Win 8.10:46
saryOutlander: you mean a package associated wih X !10:46
morsnowskiEagleman, try blkid10:46
Outlanderor how would I reinstall X ?10:46
IronSightpbx2, it would be cool if you could install in a VM to that partition without giving it access to your MBR10:47
IronSightthen booting it with grub ^_^10:47
pbx2IronSight: if I do it that way, Win 8 will get access to all my hardware devices after install? Or will it be like Virtualbox?10:48
pbx2IronSight, direct access I mean?10:48
IronSightpbx2, I don't even know if that can be done, just saying it would be "cool"10:48
amageedz0ny: still no luck.  i've used your xorg.conf, changed the numbers around a bit for different resolution, but the monitors are still mirrored10:48
pbx2oh :)10:48
amageei mean cloned10:49
Outlanderor can I just install "gnome" and have it drag a lot of stuff down?10:49

blackshirtEagleman, are you using lvm for your partition?10:51
Eaglemanyes10:51
morsnowskiEagleman, that is some drive you mounted10:51
Eaglemani want to use partimage but since it doesnt support ext410:51
blackshirtEagleman, that was typically lvm based disk10:51

IronSightJancoover, try a different rar file, see if it extracts10:52
IronSightsomething from a different source10:52
morsnowskiEagleman, i have the same for it's a truecrypt drive10:52
Eaglemanwhy should i use gparted?10:52
morsnowskiEagleman, because it does ext4 ?10:52
Eaglemani didnt encrypted anything so its just a useless partition?10:52
morsnowskii go and have a coffee10:52
Eaglemanso gparted can make a 1:1 disk image of my ubuntu server?10:53

pbx2I want to make full system encryption...so first it goes to Truecrypt Bootloader where I enter my password...after that I want it to show the different OS menus for boot....I just never had the courage to try it....because I don't know if it is possible?10:56
Eaglemanin windows you get the disc in, press backup, and restore it on another hard drive or even another pc10:56
IronSightpbx2 try it on a lab pc that's not being used10:56

manisabriHi. I upgraded to 11.10 64 from 11.04 and yahoo disappeared from empathy protocols, any ideas?11:01
K-J158i'm using gnome shell on my ubuntu 12.04 box, and when i'm launching a opengl application, gnome shell is using 100% of the cpu, like the opengl application. my computer has 8 CPu cores and 8 Gb of ram11:01
amageeoh it's working!  i didn't try opening Displays after using your xorg.conf but now i've done that and it's working :D11:01
IronSightno really, it's pretty easy to make a mail server, then it's just pbx2@yourip.com11:01
K-J158can i configure my system for using more than 1 core ?11:01
morsnowskioutlander you can add that with ccsm11:01
=== khem__ is now known as khem_
IronSightwell, pbx2@yourip something like that11:02
pbx2IronSight, is there a gui interface for setting that up? :)11:02
K-J158the application is slow, but only 2 cores are used ... then if gnome shell or/and the application can use more than 1 core, i think that the problem can be solved. the opengl application is based on java11:02
IronSightit helps if you have DNS11:02
dz0nyamagee: :) glad to help11:02
amageethanks for your comprehensive help!11:02
IronSightpbx2, umm, maybe in windows11:03

pranjal710I am using Ubuntu 10.04 LTS. I tried a lot, but couldnt enable audio on my laptop. It still says dummy output. Some help would really be highlt appreciated..11:24
DoctorD90..guys, when i can read some stuff about this cmd?11:24
BlackshirtDoctord90, what you mean?11:24
DoctorD90To know sudo, apt-get, ....main cmdd...11:25
IronSightsudo = use superuser commands for a single command... apt-get is used to perform package operations (install, fix, remove software)11:26
dz0nypranjal710: which laptop? does sound work on other os?11:26
BlackshirtDoctord90, you should spend your time to read manual first11:26
DoctorD90I know main cmds of dos (dir, copy, call...) in linux i dont know one xP11:26
IronSightin order to use apt-get you need to use sudo before it because it needs superuser permissions11:26
pranjal710dz0ny: yes, I have windows installed, and everything works fine. Laptop: Dell inspiron11:27
DoctorD90Black, yea.....but i dont find something of good T.T11:27
BlackshirtPranjal710, what about others linux distro?11:27
dz0nypranjal710: model and version?11:27
IronSightthey use permissions like this because linux systems are houses many times to many users, and you don't want those users doing things they aren't supposed to do, like removing software11:27
DoctorD90Fot example, why before: [13:11] (morsnowski) now you should have a nice black window, there you type sudo sudo apt-get install gnome-shell11:28
DoctorD90Sudo sudo??? 2timesx11:28
DoctorD90?11:28

JottBeHi, I have a problem with pm-hibernate, my system goes down and the state of the session seems perfectly to be suspended on disk, but is not really powered off12:04
cornholiothats with ls -all12:04

DoctorD90morsnowski, i come bakc *.*, now i run that cmd *.*12:05
JottBethis means, the fan is still running and the system can neither be switched off nor on by using the power button. I rally have to disconnect it from the power line to be able to restart it, but then it resumes the session without problems.12:06

DerZaubererThat's what I found in the logfiles about the xorg crash: http://pastebin.com/7dY4GnJw12:09
dannelexpecting hibernation to work seems greedy... shutdown only ever works 90% of the time for me :<12:09
JottBeWalex: but this way already running perfectly before I upgraded about 4 Weeks ago12:09
JottBeWalex: what would you suggest then?12:09
WalexJottBe: bugs happen in Linux code too.12:09
WalexWalex: either debug the issue ("scratch your hitch") or try suspend-to-ram.12:10
danklassonson12:10
JottBeWalex: yes indeed. I think in this case it is more likely it is a kernel bug.12:10
Walexdannel: amazingly many BIOSes and devices can't handle shutdown either.12:10
WalexJottBe: it could be the removal of workaround for a BIOS/device from the kernel.12:11
WalexJottBe: it could be the removal of workaround for a BIOS/device bug from the kernel.12:11
JottBeWalex: in that case I would have to go back to an older kernel, right?12:11
cornholioWalex, does 'udevadm control --exit' sound right to close my DM?12:12
cornholioi see there is a stop-exec-queue as well12:12
samster34hey :) so after I finally got ubuntu to run live, install and boot with the noapic kernel option, I'm wondering...what does this mean? my hardware isn't old or exotic12:13
Walexcornholio: no... it would be something like 'service gdm stop'12:13
JottBeWalex: btw suspend to memory also does not work, it causes the same problems and because I have to disconnect from power (my system is not a notebook with a battery) the suspended session is lost12:14

EaglemanWalex, if i put this information inside a file (Location: /media/hdd1/Backups/Backupfile ) /media/hdd1/Downloads/Dropbox/* and then use --exclude-from=/media/hdd1/Backups/Backupfile it will not backup dropbox right?12:18
TPBEuropeI have a screenrecorder outputed the file as .movie. How do I convert that to mp4 and preferably resize it?12:18

OerHekssamster34, noapic - Disable the "Advanced Programmable Interrupt Controller (APIC)" so your hardware isn't recognized correctly.12:21
subanomic-c means it should run in a chroot12:22
subanomicif I leave that away, it works12:22
JottBeTPBEurope: its great, the only thing which is a bit unconfortable about the tool is that it converts to a internal format before you can work with it and that takes time and a lot of disk space, but if thats not a problem for you, you should definetly try it12:22
TPBEuropeJottBe, I'm gonna have to check it out and see if I can get it working.12:23
Walexcornholio: anyhow '/etc/passwd' is very unlikely to have anything useful12:23
Eagleman:S why isnt this working... tar -cvpzf /media/usbbackupdisk/backuphdd1.tar.gz --exclude-from=/media/hdd1/Backup/BackupExclude /media/hdd1?12:23
Walexcornholio: try instead to do 'ps axf' and post the output to a pastebin12:23
WalexEagleman: probably depends on the content of that file, and what "isnt this working" means.12:24
EaglemanThese are the contents: http://pastebin.com/U5ERaK5e12:25
Eaglemantar: /media/hdd1/Backup/BackupExclude: No such file or directory12:25
Eaglemantar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now12:25
cornholioWalex. Thanks for helping me, appreciate it...  http://paste.ubuntu.com/1009612/12:25
Eaglemanaw i see, i'm so stupid..12:25
EaglemanThe folder was called Backups not Backup...12:26
WalexEagleman: if it tells you that file does not exist then it does not exist. Try 'ls -ld /media/hdd1/Backup/BackupExclude'12:26
TPBEuropeJottBe, It looks a bit complicated.12:26
JottBeWalex: once more about the pm-hibernate-problem. What exactly does it mean, if the bios patch has been removed. Do you think it was completely removed from the source, or is it more likely that it was not configured to be compiled by the ubuntu kernel package maintainers?12:27
=== lkj is now known as csilk
JottBeTPBEurope: it is not just a converter, you can cut your moves, it even is able to identify scenes. Does it recognize your format?12:27
WalexJottBe: it could be that specific workarounds were removed in a code cleanup, or a new workaround was introduced that broke a previous one. Unlikely to be an Ubuntu specific issue.12:28
CuteKitty how can I look at my bootup menu while logged into my  linux? (Hope I don't have to snap a photo with my camera).12:28
WalexJottBe: I have given up on hibernation...12:28
TPBEuropeJottBe, It didn't, but I told it to import it either way.12:28
Walexcornholio: I had asked for 'ps axf' (with an "f"), but the one you did might still be useful.12:28

JottBeTPBEurope: try to call it from the command line with the move as argument.12:29
JottBeTPBEurope: what tool are you using12:29
samster34OerHeks: anything I should worry about? both computers that I need to do this for have an intel CPU, one has an intel chipset the other an nvidia one12:29
zorro#xubuntu12:30
JottBeWalex: I think you haven't really started. But thanks anyway.12:30
WalexJottBe: I meant that I don't use hibernation because it is too buggy on too many systems12:30
JottBeTPBEurope: I meant, what tool were you using to create the movie?12:30
cornholioI definately did use 'ps axf' tried again with the same output12:31
TPBEuropeJottBe, For recording? Um.. Kazam.12:31
Walexcornholio: I did some web search and OpenElec is not even remotely an ubuntu derivative12:31
TPBEuropeJottBe, Sorry for the late reply, I couldn't remember the name, so I had to look for it.12:31
OerHekssamster34, it is not about the CPU, it is the chipset.  not sure if you should worry, you just have no APIC control. fan should run full speed.12:31
EaglemanI'm also having an issue with hdparm -S since its not working when i set it, and that resulted in my hardisk still spinning after 2 months12:31
Eaglemanit just wont go to standby modes automatic12:32
Walexcornholio: it is possible that OpenElec uses the BusyBox form of 'ps' which does not have all the options of the normal one.12:32
JottBeTPBEurope: it is a mac program, isnt it?12:33
Walexcornholio: however there is a chance that you can stop the X server with 'sudo killall Xorg'. If it gets restarted then it is restarted in 'inittab' and I don't know anything about how OpenElec's runlevels are setup.12:33
cornholioSorry to have wasted your time Walex...  I just read their page again and it says that XBMC-live is based on Ubuntu, openELEC is indeed not. I feel such a plank12:33
wyldecsilk: file it against Unity, however odds are it will get invalidated as a "suggestion" or "opinion", and suggested you make a post to brainstorm or another forum.12:33
=== doctord90 is now known as DoctorD90
Walexcornholio: you might also try 'sudo telinit 2' if it has non-Debian style runlevels. But after that I cannot guess.12:34

DoctorD90what is it???12:37
csilkwylde, I would have thought it's more  of a GTK issue? Anyway, you're probably right that some gate keeper will come along and invalidate it.  I need to put it somewhere it won't just get ignored or flagged as crap because it doesn't have enough information.12:38

brimlarsary: thanks.  that bug might be less applicable; I actually get that "GPU lockup CP stall" message in my kern.log just like the guy who submitted 986524.13:31
saryhk19: you mean at the BIOS screen !13:31

q__the 12.04lts must be install with internet?13:31
* nacnud seems to have annoyed Floodbot1 :/13:31
EuroNerdq__ you mean, is an internet connection necessary to install 12.04?  No.13:32
LjLnacnud: why do you say that?13:32
nacnudIt did a test on me. Asking me to id the last digit of a string. Anyway, unless it's totally important; i'll take it as ignored.13:33
DoctorD90Bb!13:33
q__but  when i install the 12.04lts without internet,it quit to install13:33

EuroNerdHi. I'm starting to learn Ubuntu Server. (Well, I'm generally clueless about Linux.)  How do I best manage a VPS as a beginner?  Should I use Webmin (or some equivalent), or should I set up a VNC connection and try to get the full GUI?13:36

Guest52809dont know where is folder management on unity13:40
ikoniaEagleman: you don't redirect like that ">"13:40
ikoniaEagleman: dd - then as a seperate command, gzip the image13:40

fastaHow can I tell dash that I want portable sh code?13:41
fastaI.e., it should refuse to run anything which is not sh.13:41
Eaglemanikonia i want it within 1 command13:41
Paddy_NIHi would any of you know why after an update my graphics drivers are messed up.. resolution has gone down to either 1024x768 or 800x600 and hardware acceleration has vanished I am now in a unity 2d session13:42
Eaglemanso after dd is done i also want the file to be compressed by gzip13:42
ikoniaEagleman: dd doest output like that13:42
Eaglemansince its old?13:42
ikoniaPaddy_NI: how didyou update them?13:42
ikoniaEagleman: what ?13:42
klyncPaddy_NI: possibly you have drivers that need to be compiled against the new kernel? such as nvidia's proprietary ones...13:42
Eaglemandd is an old command line program used for low level copying of files. It is a legacy program from UNIX, as such it does not behave or configure like traditional programs in the GNU suite. Caution is advised, using this command with the wrong operators can cause serious data loss.13:42
Eaglemanhttps://help.ubuntu.com/community/DriveImaging13:42
brimlarEuroNerd: your server will perform better if you stick with the command line...might as well start learning it (just my opinion)13:43
Eaglemanthey told me there to use the > command13:43
ikoniaEagleman: it behaves totally like a traditional program13:43
usheradeshello any1 know about wiimotedev?13:43

MagicJhow an I stop 12.04 from popping up the pannel when I move to the left of the screen?13:43
ikoniaEagleman: to pipe something you have to get output to pipe "through" the next command13:43
sarybrimlar: be with you in a moment. just looking for a proper way to truobleshoot/debug your issue .13:43
ikoniaPaddy_NI: how did you update it - not what card13:43
EuroNerdbrimlar, I suspect GUI thru VNC would be a huge burden, but Webmin shouldn't be a drag on the system?13:43
MonkeyDustMagicJ  use MyUnity, it's in the repos13:43
Paddy_NIikonia, oh just used "sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade"13:44
ikoniaPaddy_NI: which package was the problem package ?13:44
Eaglemansi i should use the | ?13:44
brimlarEuroNerd: Webmin isn't much of a burden, so it is a possible route.  Webmin does seem to get compromised now and again so that's what keeps me away from it, but it's commonly used13:44
Eaglemanso*13:44
Sidewinder!webmin | EuroNerd13:44
ubottuEuroNerd: webmin is no longer supported in Debian and Ubuntu. It is not compatible with the way that Ubuntu packages handle configuration files, and is likely to cause unexpected issues with your system.13:44
ikoniaEagleman: no13:44
Paddy_NIikonia, linux kernel I believe13:44
Guest52809monkeydust yepp i m on the icon selection but none of the videos are showing me preview thumb just the film negetive13:44
Paddy_NIikonia, that is why I did not use apt-get upgrade13:45
ikoniaEagleman: dd does not work like that, it does not output it's command to be piped through13:45
Guest52809how do i see whats in the video file a frame13:45
MonkeyDustGuest52809  may depend on the filetype, i guess13:45
EuroNerdSidewinder, ok, thx13:45
ikoniaPaddy_NI: sorry, you said you updated your graphics driver, so why do you think the kernel is a problem ?13:45
ikoniaPaddy_NI: what is the graphics driver package that got updated13:45
SidewinderNP.13:45
MagicJMonkeyDust:  do you mean I need to install MyUnity?13:45
brimlarSidewinder: thanks, did not know about webmin support in Ubuntu these days13:45
Paddy_NIikonia, oh not sure :-(13:45
MonkeyDustMagicJ  yes13:45
Guest528093gp , avi , mp413:45
Guest52809none are showing it13:46
SidewinderMy pleasure. :)13:46
Eaglemanso how can i integrate dd into a cron job13:46
Eaglemanset the gzip command an half hour later?13:46
MagicJMonkeyDust:  ty - I will check it out right now13:46
EuroNerdbrimlar, so what would be your recommended least-resistance way of learning Ubuntu Server administration?  I don't want to read a whole book and do 100 tutorials. I need to just get it running and concentrate on my silly web app that I'll host there. :)13:46
ikoniaEagleman: exactly what I said, write a script that compresses the file AFTER it's finished being written13:46
ikoniaPaddy_NI: ok, just tryingto clarify, do you KNOW if there was an update to your graphics card drivers ?13:46
Paddy_NIikonia, oh well no not for sure13:46
Paddy_NII am just assuming so13:47
Eaglemanbut AFTER is based on time that can be different13:47
brimlarEuroNerd: perhaps describe what you want to install and I'm sure people here can give some ideas13:47
ikoniaPaddy_NI: ok, best to just expain the problem rather than tell preople your graphics drivers got updated if you have no idea if they did or did not get updated13:47
ikoniaEagleman: sorry what ?13:47
morsnowskiEagleman, if you want to go zip right away you can do "dd if=/dev/sda1 | gzip -9 > /backup/backup.gz"13:47
ikoniadd does not output like that13:47
Eaglemanwouldnt that cause for problems?13:47
ikoniathere is no output to pipe to fzip13:47
ikoniagzip13:47
Paddy_NIikonia, Oh well the problem occurred after I updated13:48
ikonials | grep - will pipe the output of "ls" into grep13:48
ikoniadd if=/dev/sda1 doesn't output13:48
Eaglemanit outputs a file13:48
ikoniaEagleman: yes, but it doesn't output the contents of that file13:48
Eaglemantrue13:48
ikoniaEagleman: so you have nothing to pipe | through13:48
cameron__hello13:48
ikoniaPaddy_NI: first point of call, check out the xorg logs13:49
Eaglemanso i'm fine if i make the cron job with dd and an half hour later the gzip command13:49
Dr_Willissudo bash -c "dd if=/dev/sda2 | gzip > /media/disk/sda2-backup-10august09.gz"13:49
ikoniaEagleman: you don't need times13:49
Dr_Willisperhaps... ;)13:49
EuroNerdbrimlar, I guess I should just ask myself step by step what I want to accomplish and google each step for a tutorial. ;)13:49
cameron__im trying to follow this tutorial: http://forum.doozan.com/read.php?2,2435,2439#msg-243913:49
dr3mrodmesg five me this errer "[Hardware Error]: Machine check events logged"  " apm: BIOS not found."13:49
cameron__but im up to step 3 and i cant find my device using the dmesg command13:49
ikoniaEagleman: just do dd if=/dev/ blah blah, then the next command in the script gzip , so that when dd finishes gzip kicks in13:49
Dr_Willisjust googling and saw that at --> http://serverfault.com/questions/52260/compressing-dd-backup-on-the-fly13:49
brimlarEuroNerd: yeah, that's one way to do things.  If it's just a LAMP server or something similar, there are very quick commands to get the whole thing installed rather painlessly13:49
Eaglemanaight, thanks alot ikonia :)13:49
coder2how can we install new themes in ubuntu 11.10???n suggest some good themes too pleqse13:50
brimlarsary:  it's ok if there isn't a great workaround.  I've been having to force a Ctrl-Alt-F2 and issuing: pkill -u <user> -- but this kills everything13:50
MonkeyDust!eyecandy| coder213:50
ubottucoder2: Find your themes at: http://www.gnome-look.org - http://art.gnome.org - http://www.kde-look.org - http://kubuntu-art.org - http://themes.freshmeat.net/browse/58/ - http://www.guistyles.com - https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Artwork/ - Also see !changethemes and https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuEyeCandy13:50
Dr_Williscoder2:  thers several in the repos, and many sites have  ppas for themes such as the webupd8 site. it has ppsa and some good guides and reviews of various themes13:50
Dr_Williscoder2:  it really depends on exactly 'what' you are wantng to change the look of. the term 'themne' is a bit broad13:51
Eaglemanhow do i execute a command after another command in cron job?13:51
Dr_WillisEagleman:  easiest way. make a script that the cronjob runs13:51
cameron__when i put the device in there is no information to say that it hasbeen plugged in13:51
EuroNerdbrimlar, except, I don't even know in some cases what things are called, and hence don't know what to google.13:51
Eaglemanthis is what i've got so far now13:51
Eagleman#0       4       *       *       3dd if=/dev/sda of=/media/hdd1/Backups/sdabackups/sda.bin bs=102413:51
cameron__but the device says it is connected13:51
coder2Dr_Willis, thank you13:52
ikoniaEagleman: no13:52
ikoniaEagleman: write a SCRIPT13:52
ikoniathen call the script from cron13:52
Eaglemanthats some rocket science for me :P13:52
Dr_Willis!abs | Eagleman13:52
ubottuEagleman: Advanced Bash-Scripting Guide, obtainable with ${package-manager} install abs-guide, is a quick and comprehensive guide to bash (command line) scripting in *nix systems. It is also viewable via web at http://tldp.org/LDP/abs/html/13:52
EuroNerdbrimlar, for instance, I came up with a very silly machine name, so now in prompt I see myname@very-silly-name and I'd like to change the latter. What is that technically called? And won't it break a ton of things if I change it after the whole LAMP is installed?13:53
Dr_Willisalso its more common to backup specific partions then the whole hard drive. sda1 vs sda13:53
Dr_Willis!hostname | EuroNerd13:53
ubottuEuroNerd: Use hostname <somehostname> to set the hostname, or to do it permanently: edit /etc/hosts to include BOTH the old and new hostname and then change /etc/hostname to the new one. WARNING! Make sure that your current hostname and /etc/hosts match, otherwise sudo may not work properly.13:53
=== tommy_ is now known as Guest79470
Eaglemanhmm thats alot of text Dr_Willis, i just need some examples so i can edit them13:54
Dr_WillisEagleman:  theres literally 1000;s of bash scripts on the internetz13:54
dounanyone online?13:54
Dr_Willisif not millions.. ;)13:54
dounmy logitech keyboard, the caps lock leds not work under tty..13:55
EuroNerdDr_Willis, thanks, but isn't the old hostname referenced in a dozen config settings of all the programs already installed (like MySQL, PHP, etc) ?13:55
dounany help?13:55
Dr_Willishttp://tldp.org/HOWTO/Bash-Prog-Intro-HOWTO-12.html#ss12.2   12.2 Sample: A very simple backup script (little bit better)13:55
Dr_WillisEuroNerd:  that factoid has been the basic way toc hange the hostname for ages.13:55
EaglemanThose 5 lines and thats it?13:56
Dr_WillisEuroNerd:  i woul imagine the apps get the hostname the same way all the other apps on the system would do.. by reading the system hostname.13:56
ikoniaEuroNerd: those appes reference localhost13:56
brimlarEuroNerd:  I'm not certain, otherwise I'd advise.  my hunch is the apps all call "localhost"13:56
EuroNerdDr_Willis, OK, thanks :)13:56
Dr_WillisEagleman:  you wanted an example. theres tons of examples. I donmt know the details of what you are doing.13:56
ikoniaEuroNerd: unless you have manually changed their config to reference a different hostname13:56
EuroNerdok13:56
Paddy_NIikonia, I have no idea, the log files are too cryptic for me :-(13:57
ktwohig9good morning13:57
Eaglemanall i want it to do is execute dd if=/dev/sda of=/media/hdd1/Backups/sdabackups/sda.bin bs=1024 and then gzip to an usbdisk, and then rm sda.bin13:57
Paddy_NIikonia, There are 3 xorg log files13:57
ikoniaPaddy_NI: nothing stands out, no warnings ? (WW) is a warning13:57
Paddy_NIsec13:57
ikoniaEagleman: you don't need to rm the bin file, as the gzip will rename it as it compresses it13:57
cameron__hello?? can anyone help13:57
dounis there a way to choose my  keyboard type ,other than dpkg-reconfigure console-setup..13:58
Eaglemanok nice13:58
ikoniaEagleman: I've told you 3 times what to do 1.) run the dd command 2.) execute the gzip command on the output file - it's that simple13:58
sarybrimlar:  see if you can obtain a full backtrace https://wiki.ubuntu.com/X/Troubleshooting/Freeze , https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DebuggingKernelBoot , https://wiki.ubuntu.com/X/Debugging .13:58
brimlarsary: okay13:58
Dr_Willisweird that hes dding from sda. but his other hd is mounted to hdd113:58
EuroNerdSo now that you see the depth of my ignorance, how would you advise me to learn Linux (and Ubuntu Server in particular) ?   :)   Mind you, I'm an easily frustrated dummy coming from Windows (and using Ubuntu Desktop for past 6 months).13:58
sarybrimlar: good luck .13:58
brimlarsary: thanks :)13:59
ikoniaEuroNerd: just use it for time - you can't buy time13:59
Dr_WillisEuroNerd:  pick some topic, start reading up on it, then expand. come back to reread the other stuff as you learn more.13:59
EuroNerdok13:59
Dr_WillisEuroNerd:  top thing to learn for messing with a server would be bash and ssh.13:59
MonkeyDustEuroNerd  the best way to learn, is by just using it, i guess, like we all did13:59
brimlarEuroNerd: and assume you won't do it perfectly the first time, you will break stuff13:59
Paddy_NIikonia, found a few, although they make little sense13:59
EaglemanDr_Willis ur saying that i'm also backing up /hdd1 since its located in /media/hdd1?13:59
EuroNerdcopy that13:59
ikoniaPaddy_NI: want to pastebin some of them that look a problem13:59
Paddy_NIikonia, talking about failing to load a font14:00
Paddy_NI:-(14:00
Paddy_NIokay14:00
ikoniaPaddy_NI: that shouldn't cause any real issues14:00
Dr_WillisEagleman:  i dont know  exactly what you are backing up. but its rather rare for drives to be called 'hd'* these days.14:00
ikoniaPaddy_NI: the fonts would just cause the fonts to drop back to default, nothing major14:00
Dr_WillisEagleman:  you are imageing a whole hard drive. why are you doing that exactly?14:00
Eaglemanits still called /sdb1 but its mounted as /hdd114:00
Dr_Willismay be a good idea to stop using the missleading mountpoint then. ;)14:01

ikoniac0deMaster: on the start of authority dns servers - not your machine14:02
yeatsEuroNerd: brimlar: you can also install tasksel, do 'sudo tasksel', select LAMP server and voila14:02
EuroNerdbrimlar, thanks, but I already have LAMP installed... I just run the standard Ubuntu Server installation, clicking Next at each step... ;)14:02

Eaglemanhadnt tought about that14:03
will3032840Hello, I need help!14:03
ikoniac0deMaster: the person who runs your domain#s dns server does it14:03
EuroNerdbrimlar, perhaps I should add, for now I installed Ubuntu Server in a VirtualBox, so that I can learn the basics at my own pace, before I throw away money on a VPS. ;)14:03
Paddy_NIikonia, should I paste "Xorg.0.log.old" and "Xorg.1.log" ?14:04
ikoniaPaddy_NI: let me have a read first14:04

ace7guys <I need help... I'm trying to make to make new NTFS partition on hard disk using Gparted because I want to install win7, but I can't unmounted it because the partition that I want to resize is currently in use (ubuntu system).. any solution?14:04
cameron__hello?? im trying to use a small digital photoframe as a video output but the device isnt appearing, can anyone help?:?14:04
will3032840I am trying to use pandora internet radio in Rythmbox. Can anyone help me?14:04
ikoniaace7: let the windows installer create your ntfs partition14:04
nsahooAnyone with virtualbox experience?14:05
nsahooI increased the number of virtual cpus on a 32bit xp guest from 1 to 4. But, I don't see the additional CPUs when I restart the virtual machine.14:05
Paddy_NIcameron__, the digital photo frame is it connected to your computer via usb?14:05
EaglemanSo let me explain what i'm trying to do. I want a 1:1 copy of my 64gb ssd ( /dev/sda ), and a specific backup ( with cronjobs and tars ) on my hdd1 ( /dev/sdb ), so when my ssd fails i can set the MBR and the ext 3 partition back on another ssd.14:05
ikoniaPaddy_NI: interesting line in there that it can't load the framebuffer14:05
Paddy_NIikonia, yeah14:05
Paddy_NIfalls back to vesa14:05
will3032840Hello????? I am trying to use pandora internet radio in Rythmbox. Can anyone help me?14:05
brimlarEuroNerd: here's a Canonical PDF server guide: https://help.ubuntu.com/11.04/serverguide/serverguide.pdf14:06
saryEuroNerd: as fellow ubuntuser said , learn the core system and how things work is the best why for practice , ge familiar with commands line , use the proper tools , check the LPIC exam , use a VPS like linode if you can't can't run the server on another machine .14:06
cameron__yes Paddy_NI but when ido lsusb there isnt a difference between when i have it plugged in and when i dont14:06
yeats!details | will303284014:06
ubottuwill3032840: Please give us full details. For example: "I have a problem with ..., I'm running Ubuntu version .... When I try to do ..., I get the following output: ..., but I expected it to do ..."14:06
ikoniaPaddy_NI: interesting though that vesa detects your screens available reslutions fine14:06
Paddy_NIcameron__, there is probably no linux driver in the first place for that photoframe14:06
Paddy_NIikonia, yeah and they are not selectable... I can choose 800x600 or 1024x768 :-(14:07
MagicJMonkeyDust: I installed myunity - but it fails to run and the documentation  seems to imply it is for 11. series not 12.0414:07
cameron__Paddy_NI, im following this tutorial: http://forum.doozan.com/read.php?2,2435,2439#msg-243914:07
ace7ikonia:in win installer it says it can't because the partition is file system, I only have one partition and ubuntu is using it14:07
ikoniaace7: ok, so you need to boot from a livecd and shrink your ubuntu partition to make space for the XP one14:07
yeatscameron__: open a terminal and do 'dmesg | tail' just after you plug in the photoframe... there should be some sort of error output14:07
Paddy_NIcameron__, My samsung digital photoframe can also be used as a monitor but in windows only14:07
EaglemanSo let me explain what i'm trying to do. I want a 1:1 copy of my 64gb ssd ( /dev/sda ), and a specific backup ( with cronjobs and tars ) on my hdd1 ( /dev/sdb ), so when my ssd fails i can set the MBR and the ext 3 partition back on another ssd. Dr_Willis14:08
ikoniaPaddy_NI: while I'm reading this, have you considered forcing the options/intel driver in the xorg.conf file ?14:08
ikoniaEagleman: I've told you what to do ?14:08
ikoniaEagleman: what is not clear14:08
will3032840Ok so I tried to install the rythembox Pandora internet radio plugin from google code, then I install it, and in plugins it doesn't come up. I am running ubuntu version 12.04, I get no pandora plugin in plugins, but I don't see it. I ran the setup.sh script for it from google code but that didn't work either.14:08
cameron__Paddy_NI, its a 1.5" one so should work14:08
ikoniaEagleman: 1.) issue the dd command 2.) gzip the output file14:08
Paddy_NIikonia, hmm.. I thought xorg.conf was dead?14:08
Paddy_NIikonia, have not used it in years14:08
ikoniaPaddy_NI: no no, it's not used by default as xorg does auto detect, however you can put xorg.conf in place and xorg will obey it14:08
Paddy_NIikonia, also when I try to modprobe intel there is no intel_drv14:08
Dr_WillisEagleman:  another point.. do you know how to restore such an image? if you need to?14:09
ikoniaPaddy_NI: don't worry about that14:09
ikoniaPaddy_NI: that's an nvidia thing14:09
Eaglemanyes i know what to do ikonia but isnt dd also backing up my mount point?14:09
Paddy_NIikonia, oh okay14:09
cameron__theres lots of messages Yeats14:09

EuroNerdOK, so I installed Ubuntu Server in a VM, I want to see the default Apache page, so I check the inet addr with ifconfig, and instead of a 192.168.x.x range, I see 10.0.2.15. (And of course it doesn't work when I type it into a browser on the host.)14:10
Eaglemani'm only gonna use the dd image for an complete restore, executed from a live cd with dd14:10

zykotick9Paddy_NI: FYI (for next time), you can probably use "X -configure :1" while xorg is running to generate the file.  ikonia14:24
ikoniaahhh maybe that's what I had in my head14:24
yeatscameron__: sounds like it's a hardware issue... check the cable, try on another computer/OS, try something you know works in the same USB port, etc.14:24
Paddy_NIzykotick9, actually there was no xorg.conf in root14:25
Paddy_NIread that on a forum14:25
Paddy_NI:-(14:25
Paddy_NIzykotick9, so use :1 then14:25

yeatsace7: you'll need to do that with a live CD (the ubuntu install CD has gparted on it)14:33
blackshirtace7, you can download live cd14:33
zykotick9Paddy_NI: nope, sorry14:34
douna usb stic is ok for a live cd14:34
Paddy_NIzykotick9, It was working wonderfully until I decided to perform an update14:34
blackshirtace7: have you ever using partition magic before ?14:34
ace7nope14:34
Paddy_NIzykotick9, I know it is probably me being a little annoying but this is crazy from an LTS!!14:35
zykotick9Paddy_NI: was there a kernel update?  do you see more then 1 kernel in grub?  (hold SHIFT after bios to see grub menu, if you don't usually see it)  if you do see more then one kernel, does the old one work?14:35
ikoniaPaddy_NI: what's going on14:35
ace7I install ubuntu using usb pendrive, and that pendrive is now have win7 in it.. forgot to make backup for ubuntu installer... +.+14:36
Paddy_NIikonia, I created the xorg.conf and pasted the contents into "/etc/X11/xorg.conf"14:36
EuroNerdbrimlar, so I enabled the Birdged adapter (and also Host-only, to be sure ;)), but it doesn't seem to be enabled on the server. ifconfig -a gives two more results than ifconfig, so the two seem to be inactive. (No inet addr provided for these two with ifconfig -a.)14:36

ikoniaPaddy_NI: one of them is set to vesa14:40
Eaglemanikonia so like this? http://pastebin.com/Bx7Enq4T14:40
Paddy_NIikonia, cool... so the intel driver it is using is just called "intel" and not "intel_drv" like the log file complained about being unable to load14:40
ikoniaPaddy_NI: 1.) why is there two video cards defined 2.) what is the second video card14:40
Paddy_NIikonia, hmm this is a laptop14:40
ikoniaPaddy_NI: "intel" is the right one, so that's good,14:40
ikoniaPaddy_NI: not a dreaded optimus video card is it ?14:40
Paddy_NIikonia, It has a hdmi and vga port14:40
Paddy_NIikonia, I dont think so14:40
ikoniaEagleman: then you don't need the vesa14:41
ikoniaPaddy_NI: that shouldn't be a second card, that's just a second output14:41
Eaglemanvesa?14:41
ikoniaEagleman: sorry the "mv" command14:41
ikoniaEagleman: you're writing to the right place, so there is nothing to "move" at the end14:41
zykotick9Paddy_NI: does this list 2 cards?  "lspci -v | grep -i vga"14:41
Paddy_NIikonia, no idea where the second display is coming from... perhaps it is remembering my television or something?14:41

ikoniaPaddy_NI: interesting14:50
Eaglemanthink i'm gonna stop with dd, i dont understand a single thing about it14:50
Paddy_NIikonia, should I try the older kernel14:50
ikoniaPaddy_NI: consider forcing the resolution in the xorg.conf, or try setting it with xrandr14:50
ikoniaPaddy_NI: if you still have it, try it for interests sake14:50
Paddy_NIokay how do I do it with xrandr?14:50
Eaglemanmaybe i should just stick with tar -cvpzf14:50
Dr_WillisEagleman:  dd if=whatever of=/the/mounted/drive.out      then  cd /the/mounted/    then gzip the file...   (if i understand the issue)14:50
ikoniaPaddy_NI: test the kernel first, lets see what that does14:51

harushimowoa...this distro never ceases amazing me15:11
harushimothat is awesome15:11
Eaglemanthis should work much better and its way better to understand for me, http://pastebin.com/wuAfUB1a15:12
Harrisharushimo, try compiz15:12
ikoniaEagleman: what do you hope to achieve with that ?15:13
Eaglemanbackup files on my hdd1 disk15:13
Eaglemanand exclude some15:13
Harrishow do i make wallch startup when i sign in15:13
ikoniaEagleman: how do you plan to use it ?15:13
Eaglemanusing a cron job wich is scheduled for once a week15:13
ikoniaEagleman: no, I mean how do you plan to use it for a restore ?15:14
Paddy_NIikonia, Actually I really appreciate every iota of help you and zykotick9 have given me but I feel this is something that ultimately will need a reinstall to fix! I would then re-apply the updates and see if the problem returns... what do you think?15:14
HarrisDr_Willis, how do i make wallch startup when i sign in15:14
ikoniaPaddy_NI: it's a brave move and I admire it, however if you're going to do it, make sure you note down which updates get applied so we can work it through if it breaks again15:14
Paddy_NIikonia, you are spinning many plates and I applaud you sir :-)15:14
Eaglemanwell if some 1 on teamspeak accidently deleted a file i can get it back from the backup15:14
Eaglemansomething like that15:14
ikoniaEagleman: no, you can't just grab a file from the archive15:15
Paddy_NIikonia, will do, thanks again :-)15:15
Eaglemani know15:15
ikoniaEagleman: you'll need to decompress and expand the whole archive15:15
Paddy_NIlater zykotick9 ikonia :-)15:15
Harrishow do i make wallch startup when i sign in15:15
Eaglemanjust restore it into a different folder and find the file: Tar –xvpzf /media/usbbackupdisk/backuphdd1.tar.gz –C /recovery15:15
ikoniaPaddy_NI: no problem, if you want to upgrade, say and we'll walk through it15:15
Eaglemansomething like that15:15
Paddy_NIikonia, excellent15:15
Paddy_NIcould not possibly ask for any more than that :-)15:16
Paddy_NIbye15:16
Eaglemancya15:16
Eaglemanso that should work right?15:16
ikoniaEagleman: why are you backing up /media/hdd1 ?15:16
ikoniaEagleman: no, I don't think it will work15:16
Eaglemanwhy not....15:16
harushimothe reason for automounting the drive because I want to create a virtual machine using virtual box. In order to do that, I need the drive mount15:16
ikoniaEagleman: I really can't understand why you keep doing everything except what I've told you to do15:16
harushimoI mean mounted15:16
Eaglemanif it works it works15:17
Eaglemani dont see the problem15:17
ikoniaEagleman: it wont15:17
Eaglemanand why is that?15:17
morsnowskiEagleman, have you considered mkisofs? That would make it a snap to restore single files15:17
ikoniaEagleman: what file system are you trying to backup15:17
Eaglemanext315:17
ikoniaEagleman: no, I mean / or /var etc15:18
Harrishow do i make wallch startup when i sign in15:18

ubottuHarris: Don't feel ignored and repeat your question quickly; if nobody knows your answer, nobody will answer you. While you wait, try searching https://help.ubuntu.com or http://ubuntuforums.org or http://askubuntu.com/15:18
ikoniaEagleman: what's on /dev/sdb115:18
Eaglemana harddisk15:19
ikoniaEagleman: don't be smart, I understand that15:19
ikoniaEagleman: I mean what data, it can't be your system15:19
Eaglemanbut what do you mean then15:19
Eaglemanow ok15:19
ikoniaEagleman: it must be external data, correct ?15:19
Eaglemanlike music and video's also some teamspeak files15:19
harushimohttps://gist.github.com/281468615:19
Eaglemanyes15:19
morsnowskiHarris, how about putting it into startup applications15:19
ikoniaEagleman: ok, great, so it's not your system, that should be fine15:19
Harrismorsnowski, how do i do that15:19
morsnowskiit's under systen tools/preferences15:20
Eaglemanso it should work right?15:20
ikoniaEagleman: I think it's a bad solution, but it will backup that data, sure15:20
xanguaHarris: open the dash and type Startup15:20
Eaglemanso what is a better solution?15:21
ikoniaEagleman: you can remove FILENAME from the script, you don't need that15:21
Harrismorsnowski,  what do i put in the command line in startup applications15:21
falstafI am getting an error report when I use synaptic it has something to do with a script exiting with an error code.15:21
ikoniaEagleman: you're not using FILENAME, so you can remove it15:21
Eaglemani know15:21
Harrisi opened startup and clicked add typed wallch in name what do i type in command15:22
morsnowskiharris the name of the app, which i don't know since I'm not using it15:23
Eaglemanso now i should place the script in /etc/init.d and give it rights?15:24
Harrismorsnowski, what is the command15:24
ikoniaEagleman: you don't want it in there15:24
morsnowskiharris the name of the app, which i don't know since I'm not using it15:24
Harrismorsnowski,  that goes in the name line15:24
Eaglemanand if i place the script inside this folder? /media/hdd1/Backups/15:25
ikoniaEagleman: just put it in your home directory15:25
Eaglemanok15:26
quiescensif you need help rolling your own backup system, i don't know if you should be rolling your own backup system o.o15:26
kbroulikwhy doesnt apache2 want to start if /var/log/apache2 does not exist? instead of just creating it silently -.-15:26
ikoniakbroulik: because it needs write permissions to /var/log, and it doesn't have it15:27
ikoniakbroulik: so just create it as it depends on having a writable log space15:27
kbroulikhmm, okay, so I will just add a mkdir -p /var/log/apache2 to the init.d script's "start" section15:28
ikoniakbroulik: no15:28
ikoniayou don't need to do it to the init script15:28
quiescenskbroulik: no particular reason but i would expect most things to complain when told to use directories that don't exist15:28
ikoniakbroulik: 1.) when you install the apache package - it will create the log direcotry for you15:28
ikoniakbroulik: 2.) once the log directory exists, you don't need to re-create it15:28
kbroulik/var/log is in tmpfs, explaining why it is gone after restart :)15:29
Eagleman0        4       *       *       3      /home/eagleman/hdd1backup15:29
ikoniakbroulik: then disable logging in apache15:29
kbroulikikonia: how? I can't find anything useful.15:31
ikoniakbroulik: the log level and location is in the apache config15:31
kbroulikbut there is no LogLevel none option, just warn, critical, etc15:32

xanguaroasted: as in a video embeded in a site¿15:48
Jaapxangua, ty15:48
roastedxangua, pretty much. I have .AVI files hosted off of my server for my video surveillance feed. I can click on them and play them fine in FF but not Chrome. I just get a black screen.15:48
DarkTomasI have a problem with my eyetoy cam i want to use it as a microphon but if i speak it sounds like a chipmunk i have ubuntu 12.0415:49
roastedxangua, I can easily use FF, but I find it hard to believe Chrome wouldn't support this.15:49
EaglemanHow di i set this to automatic on fstab? mount --bind /home/eagleman/website  /var/www/html15:49

JancooverIs there any need to upgrade Ubuntu?15:50

JancooverAnd are there any improvements in GUI?15:51
CookieMJancoover if you're happy with one you have, there's no need for upgrade15:51
roastedxangua, would chromium plugins apply to chrome? I'm using the official google chrome .deb from google's site, not chromium from the repos.15:52
xanguaroasted: if you are using chrome it already uses it i believe, no idea then sorry15:52
roastedxangua, well dang, hm okay. Thanks for trying!15:52

synack_hey all15:55
synack_when i do a "ping example" i get this message . . . .15:56
synack_superuser@ubuntu:~$ ping ruby15:56
synack_PING ruby (204.232.137.207) 56(84) bytes of data.15:56
synack_im wondering why all "example" strings resolve to this IP15:56
synack_and this IP is a rackspace IP according to whois data15:56
synack_what could this mean and could it be a security threat?15:57
morsnowskiso what do you get if you ping ruby?15:57
synack_if anybody has any idea what this is or if you could paste the output of you doing a "ping ANYHTING"15:57
morsnowskithat should come back as unknown host as long as you don't have alocal ruby entry in your dns server15:58
synack_i would appreciate it. morsnowski - the "ruby" can be anything15:58
morsnowskiso what is your question ?15:58
synack_all hosts return as this IP, all save like yahoo.com15:58
avelldirollsynack_: you seem to use a funny DNS (in the bad sens of the word funny)15:58
morsnowskion your local machine15:58
synack_let me explain more, i want to know what it means and what you get if you "ping anything"15:58
synack_avelldiroll: im confused , i get my dns from dhcp15:59
synack_superuser@ubuntu:~$ ping anythinggoeshere15:59
synack_PING anythinggoeshere (204.232.137.207) 56(84) bytes of data.15:59
synack_see?15:59
synack_it never pings, it just resolves to this IP15:59
morsnowskiwhat do you get for "ping  google.com"15:59
avelldirollsynack_: yes, probably, and your dhcp is providing a lying DNS16:00
synack_google.com will work16:00
synack_superuser@ubuntu:~$ ping google.com16:00
synack_PING google.com (74.125.228.34) 56(84) bytes of data.16:00

FloodBot1synack_: Please don't flood; use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste; don't use Enter as punctuation.16:00
avelldirollsynack_: probably to add some sort of ads when you mistype a fqdn16:00
morsnowskioh ok you are comlaining that you don't get replies then ?16:00
synack_avelldiroll: does this mean i have spyware or a virus?16:01
synack_on ubuntu?16:01
synack_morsnowski: I am not complaining, I am investigating, or trying too16:01
synack_i want to understand it16:01
morsnowskigood luck16:01
synack_it is not causing an issue for me, but it seems abnormal16:01
synack_thanks, with the smart people in here I doubt I need any luck though16:02
avelldirollsynack_: no, that means your dns provider is not honnest, you should use another dns16:02
synack_avelldiroll: could you elaborate?16:02
avelldirollwhat did you understand ?16:02
synack_maybe i will start using opendns16:02
avelldiroll+n't16:02
synack_well , what the word honest means in this sense16:02
synack_is this DNS poisoning?16:02
synack_an attack?16:03
avelldirolloepndns is also a lying dns16:03
synack_like i said, this DNS server was obtained via DHCP16:03
synack_lol - so what is a non-lying dns16:03
avelldirollit is not an attack, just a bad practice from some dishonnest providers16:03
