escottkosko, rather nice vim00:00

Aethrs98% of my Ubuntu use is LTS server installs, so I haven't actually seen the "new" gui in quite a while.00:01
halakarhmm, i could use a little more informaton00:02
haryvwhat kind of services can i turn off for my zoneminder frame rate to pickup?00:02
halakarlike...can i boot from the 12.04LTS CD and enter some sort of "boot repair" mode?00:02
escotthalakar, https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RestoreGrub00:03
halakarescott, I think I need this:  http://sourceforge.net/projects/boot-repair-cd/files/00:03
escotthalakar, i think you should read the documentation and follow the step by step instructions we linked you to. but feel free to ignore us00:04
halakarescott, I'm not ignoring you.  Your instructions say use boot-repair.  The link I found is of 5-30.  Problem?00:04
escotthalakar, "of 5-30"??00:06
halakarescott, yes.00:06
escotthalakar, what does that mean00:06
halakarOkay....we're in june now.  June is the 6th month in the year00:06
BlackshirtWhat the mean of number on dmesg's output?00:06
halakaran iso published on 5-30 would mean..... ?00:06
koskocan a user be given an ability to nice with negative value?00:07
escotthalakar, if you want to do it the graphical way then "insert your ubuntu cd" reboot and choose "try ubuntu"00:07
MCl0vinhowdy folks00:08
escotthalakar, unless you want to make the disk, but if you have an ubuntu disk that seems like more effort than it is worth. so go to 2 and run the two commands "sudo add-apt-repository ..." and "sudo apt-get install ..."00:08
halakarescott, I am downloading the boot-repair iso now and will not be using the ubuntu disc.00:08
MCl0vinreisio, dude , like you said no were on the net i was able to find anything that will make my wmv to work on any unix/apple platform00:09
SofiaI fresh-installed 12.04, but I kept my home directory from my previous 10.4 install. Now the gnome-terminal hangs and has no cursor. I found a few bug listings, but no solutions so far. Any thoughts?00:09
ooltra-outhey, i remember there being a netbook version of ubuntu, does that no longer exsist?00:09
escottBlackshirt, seconds since boot00:10
escottkosko, up to -10 for without root privs is normally allowed00:10
MCl0vinreisio, my best best is to convert them , like you preceded and suggested :)00:10
halakari mean good god, man00:10
krycheqjust got a brand new Asus eee 1025c and am having some video troubles with 12.04 - is this the right chan to ask for assistance?00:11
MCl0vinbut how do i do that00:11
BlackshirtEscott , number between [ ] sign ?00:11
ooltra-outhey, does anyone know if there is a ubuntu platform for netbooks like there was in the past? or is it all not just under desktop?00:11
escottBlackshirt, yes. seconds since boot00:11
MCl0vinkrycheq, what issues00:11
koskoescott: -5 permission denied00:12
YagoHey guys00:12

BlackshirtThanks escott00:13
escottkosko, i meant what is your uid? what groups are you in? but it seems you are correct you cannot increase priority00:13
YagoCan anyone help me00:14
YagoIm confused about the next step I should take00:14
SofiaMCl0vin: Single video or batches?00:14
koskoescott: so even if i'll have the root user group i wouldn't be able to set a negative nice00:14
MCl0vinSofia, a batch00:14
SofiaMCl0vin: For single videos I do alright with VLC.00:14
SofiaAh. You've got me, then.00:15
koskoescott: CAP_SYS_NICE capability is supposed to do this00:15
escottkosko, root can certainly do it. for other users you would need to modify the config in /etc00:15
MirkoKaYago: You go into the backery and say "I have a question about your bread". What will they say? Right, they'll say "What question?!00:15
MCl0vinSofia, well VLC is not reading my format thats why i want to convert them00:15

dyingloopwould it tell you if it's the wrong architecture?00:18
halakarescott, those directions you posted are garbage anyway.  there's nothing in a live environment even called boot-repair.  you can't even find it in the package manager.  absolute garbage.00:18

HelloWorld321I think I'm going to need to do a fresh install.  This happens every time I try to do an update.  I have an old on-board video adapter.  I tried to upgrade to Precise Pangolin last weekend.00:23
MirkoKaMCl0vin: you do know that the times where google presented the same result to different people are over, don't you?00:23
Jordan_Uhalakar: For restoring grub from a liveCD I highly recommend this guide https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Grub2/Installing#ChRoot which I sent you earlier.00:23

koskoafter i changed /etc/security/limits.conf  what should i run to make it in effect00:24
halakarJordan_U, all I did was slap windows 8 on an empty partition.  it destroyed grub.  blah00:24
halakarJordan_U, are you saying this "boot-repair" with the "recommended repair" option won't fix ?00:24
escottkosko, i have no idea. rebooting would certainly force it to be reread00:24
MCl0vinMirkoKa, what do you mean , no i don't?00:24

=== ty_ is now known as legasp
Luceohalakar: Just reinstall grub o.O00:25
delacmattwj2002:  read the dvd or cd as image to the hard disk twice, take md5sum from each image and compare. if both reads give same md5sum it means that the disks are propably fine as both reads gave the same result (e.g. no scratch errors)00:25
halakarJordan_U, yeah, well I had heard rumors that Windows 8 was intelligent enough to not destroy everything and add an entry in its OWN bootloader for Ubuntu.00:25
Luceodelac: If the DVD is foobar, surely both images will be foobar exactly the same00:25
escottkosko, its not a shell script. it is read by some userspace program which injects the rules into the kernel00:25
LuceoSo the hashes will match00:25
Jordan_Uhalakar: It probably will, but I prefer to know the actual commands being run rather than trusting an automated process I'm not familiar with. I know that the guide I sent you works.00:25
halakarI agree..00:26
HelloWorld321After trying to upgrade to Precise Pangolin, now when I boot, I get this message "The system is rnning in low-graphics mode.  Your screen, graphics card, and input device settings could not be detected correctly.  You will need to configure these yourself"  I can ssh in just fine, but I have trouble seeing/using the desktop.00:26
rpdmattanyone know why ubuntu 12.04 would be reading my dual monitors as a single 'laptop' monitor with screen res of 3840x1080?00:26
mattwj2002so no help?00:26
delacLuceo: if there are scratches, they will most likely cause different kind of read results, witchs causes different md5sums00:26
rpdmattit should be two monitors at 1080p00:26
mattwj2002oops sorry00:26
Luceodelac: Is that from experience or speculation? I don't see why scratches in the same place would cause different read issues00:27
mattwj2002I thought I had a problem a long time ago00:27
mattwj2002I can't remember what it is00:27
HelloWorld321How do I configure my screen, video card, and input device from ssh?00:27
MirkoKaMCl0vin: google works differently today. the same query done by you and me can (and most probably will) show very different results. telling people to google for "foo bar somehting" and tell them to look at result 3 doesn't work anymore00:27
Jordan_Umattwj2002: You could try reading the entire DVD (from /dev/sr0) and checking for read errors. Unfortunately many commercial DVDs *purposefully* insert incorrect hashes to cause read errors, so the test would always fail on those even if they were "good".00:28
halakari have a feeling i'm about to destroy everything here, i chose the recommended option....now i'm waiting for it to do something.00:28
LuceoHelloWorld321: Which GPU is it?00:28

escottdyingloop, depends on how it is disabled. rfkill?00:48
Chuck_Norrisdyingloop: sudo ifconfig <wirles interface> up00:49
escottdyingloop, its possible that if you booted windows and then disabled the wireless card through some acpi call that linux doesnt know, then the only way to reenable the transmitter might be through windows00:49

Yagook00:59
Jordan_UYago: Please get an Ubuntu liveCD (preferably Ubuntu 12.04) and come back when you have that. Basically, you need to first install an MS style MBR via the utility "install-mbr" then check that Windows boots (with no grub menu), then delete the Ubuntu partition and resize the Windows partition (making sure not to change the starting sector of the Windows partition).01:00

xisorshadowxangua, that was completely irrelevant, i DID ask a question01:07
mcoredhey guys by default ubuntu only created two partitions / and swap and i am wondering in the future if there is a chance to add /boot and /home support with recommended sizes in teh installer :)01:07
djglobalbothi. I think I have a problem with locales on a ubuntu server, I am getting odd chacaters in my console session. i've tried sudo dpkg-reconfigure locales and sudo apt-get install --reinstall locales with no avail01:08
mcoredstarting with windows 7 we all know M$ allocate 100 MiB to system boot partition01:08
escottmcored, you can do a custom partitioning in the installer, but what you have is the default01:08
Yagoescott: Yeah, but the people who use the computer are not big Ubuntu fans and I want something thats easy to remove in any circumstance.01:08
xanguamcored: you can do that by yourself, just an extra pair of steps01:09
escottYago, vbox would meet that "easy to remove" standard, and you have the benefits of a virtualized system (assuming your hardware is decent)01:09
tbrown2012fbescott: I dont know I installed the minimal iso or something and know am trying to get the sudo apt-get upgrade to work but I dont think it working:(01:09
mcoredyeah escott i just wished the installer had a simple algorithm to set a minimum /boot partition01:09
mcoredhow much do you think /boot would require?01:09
* gohkesh farts01:09
Yagoescott: thats the problem, my hardware is far from decent, http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/opgx240/en/ug/specs.htm01:09
Yagoand Win XP01:10
escottmcored, most people dont need /boot. so.... in any case i set mine to 1GB because that way i never have to worry about it filling up. at 100MB it fills up every 6months with old kernels and i have to go in and remove them01:10
escotttbrown2012fb, what does it say when you run sudo apt-get upgrade01:10
mcoredok thank you escott01:10

JustSighDUdesSo I locked a screen session and it wants a password to unlock. I do all my authentication with ssh keys. What gives?01:12
escotttbrown2012fb, ok. so whats the problem?01:13
xanguatbrown2012fb: because there are no updates to install01:13
mcoredbtw i noticed with ubuntu after it goes to screensaver, and i try to type my password to get back to the desktop, the keyboard keys wouldnt work, using the mouse i would have to go switch user, the screen refreshes and after that i can use the keyboard again01:13
Jordan_Udyingloop: USB wireless dongles tend to have poor linux support, and I think currently none support wireless N for linux.01:13
escottJustSighDUdes, it should be your users password01:13
escottJustSighDUdes, what do you mean by "screen session"01:14

xisorshadowtbrown2012fb, what are you trying to install specifically?01:14
reisioMCl0vin: maybe, but what you should actually do is tell your instructor that nowhere was it stated you had to purchase $200's worth of Microsoft Windows to take this class01:15
escotttbrown2012fb, there are no updated packages to install. your system is up to date for its release01:15
xisorshadowtbrown2012fb, upgrade only updates things that are already installed on the system01:15
Bulletrulzhelp01:15
xisorshadowtbrown2012fb, if you want to ADD things, thats a whole different matter01:15
JustSighDUdesescott: I don't have one. Screen session = cli screen. The actual application called screen. Like tmux01:15
reisioMCl0vin: and if you wanted to add a little icing on top, you could explain how h.264 MP4 + AAC is not only better supported than WMV, but more efficient01:15

escottYago, open a terminal and run "sudo apt-get install mbr" then you can run install-mbr /dev/sda (i'm guessing that sda is correct but if you have one hard drive it should be)01:35
chris__escott, would it be possible to install virtualbox guest additions on kvm...Im assuming I cant01:35
randomDudeEMPHASIS: google chrome is supposed to have it bundled in.01:36
tbrown2012fbhow to install flash in sudo?01:36
EMPHASISlimpc - check the tiny switch on your SD card is set to unlock01:36
escottYago, you could verify that by checking "sudo parted -l" and identifying what disk has the NTFS partition01:36
limpcEMPHASIS, it is unlocked01:36
Yagoescott: ok... mbr is a non-existent package01:36

=== rofl is now known as Tux
escottYago, odd that they do that. but you can add a line. sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list copy one of the other lines but replace the bit after "precise" with "universe" and add it to the file01:46
escottmaheanuu, the disk-utility gui or install smartmon-tools01:46

maheanuuescott,I got the disk util in System and it sees the drive fine but doesn't tell me that it is read only01:47
escottmaheanuu, follow up on Saeryn's suggestion and investigate dmesg, but with a disk fresh out of the wrapper and a simple FS like fat I would suspect it fell off the truck somewhere01:48

reisiotbrown2012fb: if you still can't get it, check out https://help.ubuntu.com/community/HdaIntelSoundHowto if you're using snd-hda-intel01:58

tbrown2012fbreisio: Am good I got it two work thanks01:59
escottYago, so now you can reboot and you should go directly to windows (no grub) confirm that. then reboot back to the livecd, and start "gparted" and use that to delete the ubuntu partition and increase the size of the windows partition. before you do that can you tell me if there was anything before NTFS on /dev/sda or was it /dev/sda101:59

SaerynOtherwise no, you will have to run a 32-bit Guest.02:02
harushimomy machine is 64 bit. I don't have a mobo with virtualizatoin on it02:02
harushimook02:02
harushimothat is what I thought02:02
harushimoI thought it wouldn't hurt to ask02:02
Saeryn:) No harm in asking.02:02
harushimothanks02:03
dr_williswe will still send you a bill... ;)02:03
SaerynAlso harushimo I think it is the CPU that is required to have the capability not the Motherboard but I'm not entirely sure on that.02:03
Yagoescott: Windows boots up02:03
harushimosorry then my cpu02:03
harushimoI thought it was mobo02:03
escottharushimo, i dont think you have to have VT-X to virtualize, its just a lot slower02:03
harushimoreally02:03
harushimoI was reading online that mobo have the option02:03

tbrown2012fbHow can I make my laptop cool down I have LXDE Desktop Experence on but it still getting hot:) Please someone help me:)02:04
Yagoescott: im booting live cd again02:04
escottYago, ok. so now you should be able to remove the ubuntu and resize the NTFS provided you to not change where he NTFS starts02:04
maheanuuI am going back and try to partition and format the drive again and then load it one more time, It is too late to get another disk until Monday....   That is the problem with living on an island that is remote,  no one works on weekends02:04
Boohbah!hello | ItalianStallion02:04
SaerynWhere is that information from escott?02:04
ItalianStallionim trying to install ubuntu from my hard drive that i have in a hard drive dock thats connected via usb 3.0, and when i went to reboot my computer to install, it didnt go to the drive02:04
Yagoescott: what do you mean by not changing where it starts?02:04
escottharushimo, i dont think my i3 has vtx but i can run vbox02:04
harushimoI'm running vbox02:04
harushimoI'm running into a problem setting up maas02:05
noobhow do you install to usb?02:05
harushimothe version that they have online is 64 bit02:05
Saerynescott I was under the assumption that all i3 of a 2nd Gen had VT-x?02:05
escottharushimo, i take that back mine does have vmx so i dont really know02:05
wilee-nileenoob, two types of installs a full one and one for installs which are you looking for?02:06

Saerynharushimo I'm 99.9% Sure the CPU *MUST* have VT-x Virtualization to support a 64-Bit Virtual Guest.02:06
escottYago, if NTFS was partition 2 you should not remove partition1 and make NTFS grow at the front02:07

wilee-nileeItalianStallion, how did you load the HD?02:07
SaerynAh ok escott02:07
dr_willisive ran ubuntu from usb hard drives and flash befor. no real issues. I tend to do 'full' normal installs to the external drives02:07

noobyes, a usb pendrive install is what im looking for02:07
Saerynharushimo If you give me the model of your CPU I can check for you to make sure :)02:07
dr_willisItalianStallion:  it might not be a bootable device02:07
noobthanks ubottu02:07
ItalianStallionits a hard drive02:07
ItalianStallionwhen the computer reboots, it just sits there at the menu02:08
escottSaeryn, i dont think thats true. because vmware and company existed BEFORE VT-X their existence drove the creation of the feature. http://tombuntu.com/index.php/2007/10/01/should-you-enable-intels-vt-x-in-virtualbox/02:08
wilee-nileeItalianStallion, please use nics in reponses.02:08
ItalianStallionand doesnt do a thing02:08
dr_willisItalianStallion:  that dosent mean the pc can boot from it  - due to it being in a dock02:08
escottharushimo, you dont *HAVE* to have VT-X its nice if you do though02:08
ItalianStallionso i cant install linux to a hard drive connected through a usb hd dock?02:08
escottYago, yes02:09
dr_willisive seen pcs with usb3 that cant boot from theusb3 port also.02:09
escottYago, the windows partitions will appear as NTFS partitions in gparted because thats the type02:09
dr_willisItalianStallion:  its hard to tell.  You cacn install.. but perhaps not boot it.  You could try connecing the hd directly to a usb port02:09
Saerynescott He wants to run a 64 Bit guest, I'm on a 64-Bit without VT-x and I can;t do it. That article talks about x86 unless I'm misunderstanding.02:09
ItalianStallioni dont understand, dr_willis02:10
* noob hugs ubottu02:10
dr_willisItalianStallion:  dont use the dock. Plug the HD into a usb port.02:10
ItalianStallioni cant, it is a internal hard drive02:10
Yagoescott: k02:10
Saerynhttp://askubuntu.com/questions/41550/how-do-i-run-a-64-bit-guest-in-virtualbox02:10
dr_willisthe dock has a built in hard drive? Never seen one of those. So no idea if its bootable or not.02:11
ItalianStallionThe dock has 2 sections for 2 HARD DRIVES02:11
escottSaeryn, ok02:11
harushimoyou are correct02:11
ItalianStallionone of them is 250 gb hard drive which i want to use for linux02:11
ItalianStallionand the other drive is a 2 TERABYTE DRIVE FOR STORAGE02:11
harushimothe articles they were referring to the motherboard02:11
harushimoI think processor too02:11
chris__any idea why this {sudo echo "deb http://ubuntu.mirror.cambrium.nl/ubuntu/ hardy main universe" >> /etc/apt/sources.list} would give me permission denied02:12
escottharushimo, nevermind. Saeryn is correct: Revision D and later 64-bit AMD processors (as a rule of thumb, those manufactured in 90 nm or less) added basic support for segmentation in long mode, making it possible to run 64-bit guests in 64-bit hosts via binary translation. Intel did not add segmentation support to its x86-64 implementation (Intel 64), making 64-bit software-only virtualization impossible on Intel CPUs, but Intel VT-x supp02:12
escottort makes 64-bit hardware assisted virtualization possible on the Intel platform.02:12
dr_willisYou could always boot from a external flash drive perhaps. aaaand see if you can get it booting that way. but its possible the dock is special - and cant boot from the hard drives02:12
ItalianStallionwhat if i just changed the boot order02:12
ItalianStallionwould that work02:12
escottchris__ sudo runs "echo" as root, but >> is in your shell. try echo | sudo tee -a filename02:12
dr_willisItalianStallion:  if the bios even sees the docks drives to allow you to select them.. that would be a sign it CAN boot from the dock.02:12

ben_umm this is weird02:13
dr_willisif it dosent show them ItalianStallion  that would be a sign that it cant boot from the dock02:13
harushimoone question, virtualization has been there a long time. Isn't better to do it at the software level rather than hardware02:13
ItalianStallionwhen i reboot my computer with the usb dock still powered on, it just sits at the menu02:13
ItalianStallionand when i turn it off and reset, it loads fine02:14
delaclimpc:  http://superuser.com/questions/53667/how-do-i-prevent-a-memory-card-from-mounting-as-read-only-in-ubuntu-linux02:14
Saerynharushimo Depending on what you are doing virtualization vis-a-vis hardware is usually better rather than software.02:14
limpcits not mounted, i unmounted the volume and am trying to dd an image to it02:14

chris__escott, Ill just need to get in the habbit than, is there a site that you used to use these commands?02:19
bdfosterJordan_U, yea but for debian not ubuntu (yea, i know ubuntu is based on debian)02:20
Jordan_Ubdfoster: If you really want Debian though you're in the wrong channel.02:20
escottchris__ not particularly you just pick them up over time, im still learning things. like what i gave you earlier sudo $() doesnt work the way i thought it would02:20
Jordan_Ubdfoster: Try #debian , this is #ubuntu.02:20
bdfosteryea i asked the same question in there first, no one's around02:21
chris__escott, does sudo $() do something bad?02:21
escottchris__ $() is the same as `` so it executes that command as the normal user and passes the output as a command to sudo02:21
Jordan_Ubdfoster: That doesn't make it on topic for #ubuntu.02:22
bdfosterdoesn't mean someone doesn't know...02:22

PlastikSporkLaptop running Ubuntu 12.04 running way too hot... ran cpu stress test in Windows 7... 160F.  In ubuntu temps exceeded 200F!!!!02:26
Yagoescott: thank-you. NTFS is sda1... i think its the first partition02:27
PlastikSporkSeems like the CPU fan speed does not increase as the Temp increases02:27
SaerynPlastikSpork 200F?! Usually the critical mark is about 230F02:27
SaerynI'd check the fans02:27
PlastikSporkYeah no $hit02:27
escottYago, should be. just select the stuff that is not the NTFS (and after it) and delete it. then select the NTFS and grow it to fill the free space02:27

PlastikSporksorry02:28
SaerynAh, yeah, that can be your issue, make sure the vents are clear and clean and the fan is working properly.02:28
escottPlastikSpork, could be an issue with the graphics card02:28
Yagoescott: ok, does the non-NTFS part include the "D:/" drive02:28
escottPlastikSpork, if you have an option to disable nvidia/amd graphics and use intel integrated that would be better02:28
PlastikSporknothing wrong with vents being dirty... windows 7 100% cpu stress test the temp is a constant 160F02:28
escottYago, anything NTFS is windows related02:29
SaerynThen follow escott 's advice.02:29
SaerynCheck the graphics card.02:29
PlastikSporkI am using integrated drivers02:29
escottYago, so check the types of the filesystems02:29
escott!info powertop | PlastikSpork02:29
ubottuPlastikSpork: powertop (source: powertop): Linux tool to find out what is using power on a laptop. In component main, is extra. Version 1.97-2 (precise), package size 121 kB, installed size 372 kB02:29

Yagoescott: how about file system "extended"?02:30
TiktalikI need a way to send a file from one computer to another'02:30
TiktalikWithout a USB stick02:30
escottPlastikSpork, unfortunately this is going to probably come down to either "graphics drivers" or acpi tables. neither of which can you do a lot about. there are things to tell the kernel to try and do acpi differently, but if the manufacturer creates buggy acpi tables then...02:30
SaerynTiktalik save it online then download it from the site.02:30
=== chris__0076 is now known as chris_0076
escottYago, ext4 is ubuntu. extended is a container for other partitions02:31
TiktalikSaeryn: we have a horribly slow internet connection02:31
chris__escott, what the difference between "more" and "less", I did 'dpkg --list | less' and 'dpkg --list | more' and they look the same02:31
PlastikSporkI think the problem is that Ubuntu will not increase the CPU fan speed as the Temp increases.... In windows 7 the CPU fan speed increases drastically during the stress test and in Ubuntu the Fan speed stays constant02:31
escottTiktalik, scp filename user@host:/path/to/folder02:31

escottchris__, less is more :). lots of old programs have an original UNIX variant and a subsequent GNU or BSD variant less and more are one such a tool02:32
Tiktalikescott: Can I make it use a port that isn't 22?02:32
Sav1orATTENTION #UBUNTU02:32
Sav1orDICKS02:32
escottchris__, they will have different options, usually you want the gnu version. so in this case less. I was honestly surprised they included more in the release02:33
SaerynTiktalik:  -P switch allows you to specify the port.02:33
escottTiktalik, if you run the server on a different port yes02:33
Tiktalikescott: what computers do I need ports and stuff forwarded on02:34
limpcdelac, did you see the pastebin i posted?02:34
escottTiktalik, you would need to install openssh-server on the remote system, and on any NAT (ie router) between the two you would need to forward the desired port (22 is the default, but you could use something else)02:35
delaclimpc: yes, that is the error I ment02:35

escottasdf1232, loop mount it and delete whatever your blank space file is02:38
Tiktalikescott = gentleman and scholar02:38

maheanuuescott, I repartitioned and formatted the WD 500 GB USB Drive and it seems to be loading the partials fine now and the partials are downloading normally02:39
crooperok... now that i'm here. how can I find out why aptitude won't upgrade a couple of packages?02:40
escottchris__, that would be in the style of unix, but it doesnt work that way unfortunately. you can install wodim and use it to burn02:40
asdf1232what i mean is my starting iso is 4gb used, out of 6gb space, i want it to be 4gb out of 4gb instead without mucking up the content and bootsector data in it02:40
chris__escott, asdf1232 I thought that was what I had done to burn my iso, but I also used a usb so I was technically not burning a cd02:41

deepspeedIs there a tool I can use to help me recover the thing?02:42
udyquit02:42
Saerynmaheanuu If the drive is new, the bad sectors will be marked as such and remapped, then the drive will use reserved space for such an issue to compensate, but if it IS failing and it is not a manufacturing process error, then RMA, still RMA'ing would be wise.02:42
asdf1232nothing the image has 6GB of space, but only 4GB of it is used, and im trying to make it burnable to dvd single layer02:43
maheanuuescott, I am in the middle of the south pacific, directly south of Hawaii, and we're all alone here and at about 150 dollars freight on a hard drive just to send it out is going to cost me over double the price of the drive even if they give me one02:43

maheanuuI have no idea if UPS delivered it to the dealer here, but I will not be getting a new drive till monday as the weekend is upon us.....02:45
escottchris__, don't have it installed but i believe wodim --data /path/to/file.iso /dev/sr1 would work. I usually like to throw in a --fixate and --eject and a -vv02:45

Stud-ubuntuthe usb flash drive is 7 GB02:46
SaerynStud-ubuntu You can find MANY guides via a Search Engine if you search "Ubuntu Flash Drive USB Persistent Install"02:46
Stud-ubuntuis that enough?02:46
SaerynJordan_U is correct, usually the minimum recommended is around 8GB02:47
chris__Stud-ubuntu, have you heard of the program on ubuntu named 'startup disk creator'?02:47
Jordan_Ucrooper: No I never said that. If you're using only official Ubuntu repositories it's Ubuntu and supported here.02:47
limpcdelac, let me see, cant get it remounted for some reason now. ill let you know02:47

Stud-ubuntuhow do i view the list of repositories that are available to install?02:48
chris__shrink the main partition and create a ext4 partition labeled 'casper-rw'...I think but I am not entirely sure02:48
chris__gksudo usb-creator-gtk02:48
maheanuuI'm outta here I have about 30 to 40 gigs of partial files to move from my drive on this box to the USB drive, it is gonna be great having working space on the notebook again02:49
Stud-ubuntuwhat is that?02:49
chris__its a gui program used to take isos and make bootable usbs or cds with a persistance file02:49
MaynardWaterscan anyone help me understand the difference between a .tmux.conf .screenrc and other similar thing config files?02:50
escottStud-ubuntu, there are two ways you can use a USB. one is with a FAT32 filesystem and a special bootloader that can read a compressed file that contains the ext4 system. or as a direct ext4 system and the usb is treated as a normal drive. the usb-creator-gtk does the first02:50
escottStud-ubuntu, its how you would create an install liveusb02:50
chris__a perstance file saves your stuff so it does not get lost when you shutdown02:50
escottStud-ubuntu, where i mean a usb you could use as an installer on other machines02:50
MaynardWaterschris__: I was forced to use fat eariler today, the usb-creator-gtk didnt want to write on a ext4 partition02:50
Raptor_Unetbootin is the best way to make an install usb02:50
limpcdelac, "mount: cannot remount block device /dev/sdc1 read-write, is write-protected"02:51
MaynardWaterswhy do you guys not recommend installing directly to the usb device?02:51
escottMaynardWaters, not all bioses can boot it02:51
melkorI've got a usb drive and I want to put ubuntu on it, but I need some programs on that install. Is there a good way to do this?02:51
MaynardWatersescott: nice point.02:51

Raptor_If you have a Ubuntu machine to make a live cd, use AptonCD02:52
limpci dont get it. it's not write protected.02:52
delaclimpc: that sounds like thesdcard has the write protection on02:52
chris__MaynardWaters, Your partition had filesystem errors, Try opening gparted and check and fix the filesystem02:52
delaclimpc: it does have the little knob?02:52
limpcyes02:53
limpcbut its not in the lock position02:53
chris__is it a holiday?02:53
delaclimpc: try it on the other position?02:53
limpcbut just for kicks, i changed its position to the other one02:53
delac:)02:53
limpcits still giving me the write protection error02:53
chris__check for filesystem errors02:53
delaclimpc: hmm, maybe the switch is broken?02:53

melkordamn, torrenting at 1meg per second... it still takes almost 10 minutes to d/load.02:54
escottlimpc, you are planning to recover data right. so why not just dd off and work with the image?02:54
chris__i was unable to write to my entire hard drive because my filesystem was broken. Had to boot from a live cd and use gparted02:54
delaclimpc: or there is too much dust? (did you read that article?)02:54
limpcescott, no, i dont need to recover any data02:54
limpcim trying to dd an image TO the sd card02:54
limpcdelac, its a brand new sd i just bought an hour ago02:54
escottlimpc, ok must have misread02:54
limpcPNY 32gb02:54
escottlimpc, or confused with someone else02:55
delaclimpc: well, then I recommend returning it to the store02:56
chris__ohhh. On a fat32 filesystem you can only have a 4gb persistance file which is why I shrunk the main partition and created the casper-rw. Fat32 has a max filesize of 4g-4k02:56
delaclimpc: and try another one02:56
Crooperwhy won't aptitude upgrade 2 packages that are labeled to be upgraded... no errors print out either02:57
OerHekslimpc, are you sure the cardreader can handle 32 GB?02:57
delaclimpc: just checked the anatomy of the write protect switch - it cant be that02:58
chris__if it couldnt handle it wouldnt he just beable to use the space he could like 8gb02:58
delaclimpc: but it could be the slot. does any other card work there?02:58
Crooperfat32 only takes files less than 4GB02:58
limpcOerHeks, it would be weird if it had a limit, it's just a glorified USB converter02:58
chris__my 32gb sd card was too big for my camera so It can only use 8gb02:58
chris__can he write to it if he creates a smaller partition?02:59
deepspeedlog in as root to write to the usb.03:00
limpcdelac, i dont have another card03:00
escottlimpc, how does dmesg recognize it03:00
deepspeedactually, mount the drive in a file manager, right-click the white-space, click properties, and see the permissions on the drive.03:00
Crooperit's not the partition... he can have big partitions but the package being written to it can't be 4GB or bigger03:00
limpcescott, [12792.413355] sd 7:0:0:0: [sdc] 62552064 512-byte logical blocks: (32.0 GB/29.8 GiB)03:00
deepspeedyea, fat32 has a file size limit of 4 gigs.03:00
limpcthough, 512 byte blocks is really crappy haha03:01
deepspeedbut no partition size limit, though really, really big ones give it trouble sometimes.03:01
escottlimpc, 512 is standard. its actually really a big transition to change that03:01
Crooperi have 32GB micros with fat32 on it  but can't write anything 4GB or bigger03:01
deepspeedexactly03:01
melkorCrooper: isn't that a problem with fat32?03:01
deepspeedbut can write 10 3 gig fies no prob.03:02
limpcescott, for fat perhaps. the standard otherwise is 409603:02
deepspeedthat's fat32 for u.03:02
Crooperi have 500GB hardrives that are fat3203:02
melkorCrooper: that's somewhat crazy03:02
deepspeedit's only really a problem with big games, backups, and os install files.03:02
SaerynFAT32 Has a limit by design for any file over 4GB03:02
escottlimpc, no thats the memory block size. check your hard disk, unless it is a brand new 2TB or larger disk it will have 512b blocks, and even if it is a 2TB WD "green" it will report 512b03:03
SaerynYou can make the partitions as large as you want, but any file trying to be written over 4GB won't work.03:03
Crooperthat's right the limit with fat32 is files can't be 4GB or bigger03:03
deepspeedI just use backup programs that cut the files into sized chunks, and only install os's less than 4 gigs..problem solved.03:03
Crooperthen youd go with ntfs03:03
deepspeedext4*03:03
escottlimpc, so when you first plug this in it shows in mount as read only, and when you try sudo mount -o remount,rw /mountpoint it gives you the error03:03
Crooperor ext403:03
deepspeedI need to look into the differences of ext4 and reiserfs.03:04
escottlimpc, is there an accompanying message in dmesg when you try to remount?03:04
SaerynExt4 Would be best.03:04
Crooperbut if you have a universal hardrive, winblows doesn't read ext403:04
limpcescott, hd on i took apart the media hub to clean out some dust03:04
deepspeedmeh, I have dual boot system, but windows is squeezed neatly into the corner of the drive, and rarely used.03:04
melkorCrooper: I use ntfs, I think ext3 works with windows not by default but when you install the driver it works rather well.03:05
Crooperunless u're running linux exclusively you want to use a windows safe format03:06
Crooperlinux reads windows03:06
melkorCrooper: the ntfs drivers are reverse engineered, the windows based ext drivers are open source for accessing an open source resource.03:07
limpcescott, when i plug in the device, dmesg still registers "write protect is on"03:07
Croopermelkor that might be true but i don't trust alot of drivers in windows ( that's just my opinion)03:07
limpci have a feeling that as long as it says that i cant remount03:07
Saerynescott Samsung's 2TB EcoGreen Drives also uses the 4k method but can be reformatted to a layout of 512 with 4k Sector Boundies03:07
escottmelkor, on the other hand the ntfs-3g drivers are used by virtually every ubuntu and every mac osx user, while the windows drivers for ext* are only used by a few poeople03:08
melkorCrooper: we have two 1tb drives that cannot read/write past 600megs. The problem could be that the kernel in use is 2.6.10 or something unrully.03:08
limpci have a WD 1tb green drive.03:08
Crooperwhat system are you using to write/read with melkor /03:08
escottSaeryn, yes, but my point is 512b is standard for disk block sizes (windows assumes all disks are 512b at the bottom), memory pages have been 4k for a while the transition was about 8 years ago? but thats memory pages not disk blocks03:09
SaerynOH Ok. My bad :)03:09
SaerynI misunderstood.03:09
melkorCrooper: it is an old fedora something or other. It is used as a server and should never have been. To make matters worse dev packages weren't installed so new/updated packages cannot be compiled.03:09
Crooperahhh, sounds frustrating melkor03:10
escottSaeryn, yeah limpc was saying he thought a 512b block on a block device was weird. hence my comment that it wasnt03:10
melkorCrooper: well, it hasn't broken yet, but it just lacks all the new tools.03:10
SaerynAhhhhhhhh, I see now :)03:10
Crooperrecompile the kernel and then manually upgrade03:11
mcoredhey guys whats the equivalent uI for Services in Windows?03:11
mcored**UI :)03:11
melkormcored: just service03:11
Croopermcored, try KDE03:11
escottmcored, im not sure there is a gui. there are too many init systems out there to support them all03:12
mcoredi just wanna make sure quasselcore daemon starts whenever ubuntu starts03:12
escott!upstart | mcored03:12
ubottumcored: Upstart is meant to replace the old Sys V Init system with an event-driven init model.  For more information please see: http://upstart.ubuntu.com/03:12
escottmcored, it could be as simple as creating a file in /etc/init/quasselcore.conf03:12
bazhangmcored, you can also ask in #quassel03:13
escottmcored, if you dont want to go to that trouble you can just put it in /etc/rc.local03:13
mcoredok thanks escott03:13
Crooperoh you really meant "Services" as in server ms 200803:13
mcoredyes03:13
mcoredas in services.msc03:14
Croopermcored, i ussually add something in my cron file03:14
escottmcored, and thats the combination tool to control service starting/stopping and view logs right03:14
mcoredthat is true escott, so hoped to locate the quasselcore daemon and make sure it is at Autostart state03:15
mahir256why is the 'size on disk' in lubuntu 7 times higher than the actual size? using 12.04 on a 40gb ext4 drive03:15
mcoredso far i got Deluge and TeamViewer in Startup Applications in ubuntu so its ok03:15
escottmcored, im fairly sure there is no gui for that03:15
mcoredalright thanks guys :) loving the ubuntu server with deluge and quassel installed03:15
mcoredall my window PCs can connect with ther clients to the cores installed in ubuntu03:16
Croopermcored, gui for stuff like that is ISPCongig, Webmin, and it think there's a couple more to be googled03:16
escott!webmin03:16
ubottuwebmin 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.03:16
mcoredouch03:16
CrooperISPConfig sorry03:16
mcored!ISPConfig03:16
Crooper!ISPConfig303:17
mcored!SPConfig03:17
mcored!SPConfig303:17
escottmcored, maybe if systemd becomes standard across all distros then there will be a tool that is the same, but until then there are just too many init daemons03:17
bazhang /msg ubottu mcored Crooper03:17
mcored!lSPConfig303:17
fn-trollyes hello03:18
escottand not enough developers interested in writing a gui for that. those who know enough about the init daemons to write a gui tool are probably more comfortable working with the text files in /etc/init03:18

mahir256@escott: and my nearly-empty-except-for-configs home directory is 104.8 MB total size and 820.6 MB size on disk03:38
mahir256@escott: no my /home is not encrypted03:38
limpci kinda hacked it to work on my system (rewired the pin config to work in a standard onboard usb pinout)03:39

limpcCrooper, hmm its not quite that old. maybe 3 years old03:39
limpcanyway it wont let me mount it as read/write no matter what i do03:40
limpci even disabled the physical pin on the chip in the reader (pin 74 of the AU6375 chip)03:40
limpcand its still registering it as write-protected03:40
Crooperthen that shouldn't be a problem unless it's one of those new high performance sd's03:40

escott!notunity04:02
ubottuUbuntu 11.10 uses GNOME 3 with the !unity shell by default.  To use GNOME Shell instead, install the "gnome-shell" package and investigate "gnome-tweak-tool".  For GNOME Fallback mode, which is similar to GNOME 2, install "gnome-panel". Both packages will place entries in the Sessions dropdown. Using Natty? See !classic04:02
chris__escott, I just learned a new command. Have you ever used the write command?04:02
shaiwhy when i try to run gnome-shell (is just installed on my pc) runs gnome2...?04:03
escottchris__, yes and no. the problem with write is that sure you can write to someone, but its soooooo infrequently used that im not sure i would even recognize if another user did write to me04:03
=== wylde_ is now known as wylde
escottshai, (a) are you selecting gnome-shell or gnome-panel (b) [at least in 11.10] it had a fallback mode that looked like gnome2 but was really gnome3 based04:04
escott!fallback04:04
jamiejacksonanyone know how to add a comment to an answer in askubuntu.com? i logged in, and i seem to be able to *edit* an answer, but i don't see how to comment04:04
chris__escott, could the write command be disabled. Someone could create a script to annoy another user and id like to be able to stop it04:05

shaiescott: i have ubuntu 12.04, i think is gnome-shell but i not shure... i think is gnome.shell and it looks like gnome2 (i said that because the notifications of sound and things like that are of the gnome3)04:05
shaihow i can fix it?04:05
escottshai, what does ps aux | grep gnome-panel say?04:06

jamiejacksonthanks, escott . i don't see that option. maybe i don't have enough *points* since i just signed up04:06
shaignome-panel...04:06
escottshai, so you are running panel which is a forwardported version of the panel from gnome2 to gtk3 (But many applets were lost) so yes it basically is gnome2. if you are selecting shell and getting panel its probably a graphics card issue04:07
escottjamiejackson, below the answer above the comments to the answer04:07

Flannelpanterarav: You can change your sources to point to old-releases.ubuntu.com, and that'll have 9.10 (so you can upgrade).  Or you can reinstall with 10.04, from 10.04 discs, releases.ubuntu.com04:43

RitleeSo... I have an interesting situation,  I just replaced my wifi card in my laptop (HP Envy 3D) to supposedly an Atheros Card, but both windows and Ubuntu claim that it's not the card, in fact I think it's still thinking it's the original card, lscpi output is 09:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Intel Corporation Centrino Advanced-N 6230 [8086:0090] (rev 34), ifconfig says the mac address is 88:53:2e:70:a3:32... the sticker on the card itself says the MAC address06:18
Ritlee is 00:17:C4:EF:FD:CC... anyone seen anything like this?  Did I taken when I bought my "Atheros" card?06:18
dr_williscode that is ran by a normal user that then exclates itself to root priviliages? sounds like a huge security hole.06:18
dr_willisamanthakur:  i think you would be better off using sudo, or suid the binary as needed.  but i dont code much ;)06:19
amanthakurdr_willis, actually program is using sticky bit permission right now to run it through a script.06:19
dr_willisRitlee:  ive seen some laptops have a locked down list of what wireless cards work with  them. No idea if  this is the case in your problem or not.06:19
dr_willisRitlee:  what if you removce the card and power up. What does it report then?06:20
max3can someone help me out? im trying to use hyperterminal with my 3g modem but it keeps scrolling the signal strength (rssi:6). anyone know how to turn that off?06:20
Ritleedr_willis, would that still allow the supposed atheros to function under the name of the Intel?06:20
DonaldKeyzwhere do start? recovery mode hangs too06:20

dr_willisDonaldKeyz:  live cd perhaps?06:21

Ritleedr_willis, here's an interesting turn of events... I supposedly have no wifi card installed... I'm guessing this mini-pcie port that is under the battery cover is not where the wifi adapter is... even though there are two leads that looks just like the antenna leads06:31

a2rHi, I'm on Ubuntu 12.04 right now on a Laptop and I tried Xfce4.10 this morning but it wasn't the right for me so i uninstalled it. But now I noticed, that these half transparent overlays that show up when i e.g. adjust the sound (with the keys on the keyboard) is lowres and doesn't look like the old one anymore also its in the middle of the screen instead of the top right corner now. Same with the instant-message-noticing things. guess these a10:30
a2rre the xfce ones. but i want the old ones back. will "apt-get install -reinstall unity" help? or will it break some config files? or is there an better way?10:30

oyostsacarlson, i cant seem to figure out, not a menu wait lemme rephrase10:35
oyostsacarlson, i am making a basic calc, so i need to add buttons for 1 2 3 + - etc so how do i make that any idea?10:36
Dr_WillisJettis:  like in the grub command line -->    chainloader (hd<TAB>) shows partions and filesystems10:36
sacarlsonoyost: maybe look at some examples of glade apps to get an idea,  I have on writen in ruby but you can find examples writen in python also10:36

sacarlsonkandinski: I've used quicksynergy on 10.04 works fine but I guess your running on a unity based boxes,  I could try bring up virtualbox with a unity based version to try it10:49

koskozhi, I'm trying to set a ssh access between my Windows 7 host and my Ubuntu Server 12 guest. In virtualbox I added a second adapter and set it up to "host only adapter". My first adapter is set to NAT. When I do a ifconfig to my ubuntu eth1 doesn't appear, so I added the following lines to /etc/network/interface http://pastebin.com/wA8qYYuF and the sudo ifup eth1 but when I try to ssh using11:10
koskozputty to the ubuntu the connection is refused, I don't understand11:10

MonkeyDustmbucko  sshfs is a way to connect to a remote pc, what do you mean exactly?11:13
tent405mbucko: install the ssh server11:13

losthorizonshi guys - I have a question.  I was going to install Ubuntu via the wubi installer.  I was wondering, how can I choose to boot either between Ubuntu or Windows once I have everything installed?16:13
NoeelAhoj potřeboval bych pomoc16:13
SontogoHi, I'm a linux newbie, installing ubuntu for the first time, and I'm some problems16:18
cromagsharky1: a question - otherwise no one answers :D16:19
cromagSontogo*16:19
cromagbaah..16:19
SontogoAt first I was getting a black screen after selecting 'install', so I did some web research, and found some people needed to select 'nomodeset' to make it work. I tried that and the installation worked16:19
wilee-nileeSontogo, give us a outline.16:19
Sontogoafter the installation, the system said I needed to reboot, so I did, but again I got the black screen16:19
SontogoI read on the web that I need to make the 'nomodeset' permanent so that upon boot, it works, but I don't know how to do that16:19
bgamariFor those of you in console-based IRC clients, does anyone see this character (〈) rendered with single-cell width?16:20
bgamariFor me it is rendered in two cells16:20
odinsbane3 cells for me16:20
wilee-nilee!nomodeset | Sontogo you need to enter it again in the kernel, update when you are in and check additional drivers16:20
ubottuSontogo you need to enter it again in the kernel, update when you are in and check additional drivers: A common kernel (boot)parameter is nomodeset, which is needed for some graphic cards that otherwise boot into a black screen or show corrupted splash screen. See http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1613132 on how to use this parameter16:20
bgamariodinsbane: Strange16:20
bgamariThis appears to happen in both xterm and gnome-terminal16:20
MonkeyDustbgamari  irssi here, 2 cells16:20
odinsbanebgamari: plus there are two parenthesis around the characters.16:21
bgamariI really don't know where in the stack this is; I don't think xterm depends on pango16:21
Sontogothis is a stupid question, but how do I access the kernel?16:21
bgamariodinsbane: Yes, that was typed16:21
bgamariSontogo: What do you mean?16:21
wilee-nileeSontogo, check the link full instructions there.16:21
MonkeyDustSontogo  if you don't know how, you shouldnt16:21
odinsbaneMonkeyDust: then he cannot boot.16:22
wilee-nileeSontogo, http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=161313216:22
SontogoI read that, it says "To set kernel boot options, you must edit your grub configuration. You can do this temporarily for a single boot by entering the grub menu. If you do not get to see the grub boot menu after the bios automatically, you may have to press SHIFT key after the bios logo to get in to grub:"16:22
wilee-nileeSontogo, correct16:22
SontogoI tried getting into the grub menu, but wasn't able to. I'm not sure what the grub menu is16:23
odinsbaneSontogo: it is the boot menu when you load up it gives you a choice of OS's to use.16:23
MonkeyDustSontogo  the grub menu is where you can choose ubuntu or windows (mostly)16:23
SontogoI don't get menu what I boot up16:23
SontogoI only have ubuntu on the machine16:23
Sontogo*I don't get that menu..16:24

Sontogoyea tried that16:24

wilee-nileeodinsbane, you trying to set up ubuntu to be seen by windows?16:39
SomelauwSorry, but upgrading to ubuntu 11.10 is the worst thing I ever did. Nothing works anymore.16:40
odinsbanewilee-nilee, no I am trying to setup a usb disk so I can use ubuntu at work.16:40
wilee-nileeodinsbane, you can't boot a fat there?16:40
smerzbobo123, ubuntu behaves like windows in this regard. you connect the cable, and then it will try to get an IP via dhcp16:40
odinsbanewilee-nilee: fat is fine.16:41
odinsbanewilee-nilee: There are some issues about sim links when using fat.16:41
bobo123smerz: i tried that but i don't get an IP address from the router, and in windows my laptop gets an IP address, that's the problem16:41
smerzbobo123, are you sure the network port you're using will receive a dhcp response. and did you configure eth0 (lan) to use dhcp (or perhaps a static config)16:41
wilee-nileeodinsbane, when you say ubuntu disc you mean a full install, or a live cd disc16:41
smerzbobo123, it's not configure to use some sort of static configuration?16:41
bobo123smerz from the NetworkManager it is per default Automatic DHCP16:42

odinsbanewilee-nilee: it will be a live usb but I need some added functionality.16:42
wilee-nileeodinsbane, use a flash and persistent, just don't update it, and untick the cd in softwrae sources, run a update to get the repos synced but only install your pckgs16:43
smerzbobo123, can you run ifconfig. and private message me (or use nopaste) the data for eth0 ?16:43

smerzbobo123, this is the ifconfig data, that my wireless has right now (for example) http://nopaste.info/f858e0d19c.html16:44
odinsbanewilee-nilee: do you mean flashdrive?16:44
wilee-nileeodinsbane, don't install the updates, just run it to get the repos synced for your installs, after unticking the cd16:44
wilee-nileeodinsbane, yes a flash drive.16:44

davidHi all. I've set up Ubuntu Server 12.04 and am attempting to configure network shares using Samba (currently testing over home network using Windows 7). I have a read-only share that is working fine, but when I attempt to write to the non-read-only share using the Windows client, I'm getting an access denied / you need permission error. Any advice? :)16:46
odinsbaneI have an iso, I used Unetbootin to create a flash drive with 1gig persistent data. It ran out of room. I tried to use 4gigs persistent and unetbootin froze.16:46
wilee-nileeodinsbane, usb installers like unetbootin and the installer in ubuntu have a persitent option so the usb flash has a memory of your installs,16:46
wilee-nileepersistent*16:46
odinsbane(the drive is is a 4gig memory stick)16:47
thx1138hello16:47
wilee-nileeodinsbane, you probably want at the least a 4 gig usb16:47
halfmtI have a screen brightness issue, been crawling the forums and nothing's working! Its not a simple key/software issue but more likely driver/device problem.  I can catch you up on what all I've tried if anyone's interested/has any suggestions?16:47
thx1138could someone help me with a cryptography question?16:47
wilee-nileeodinsbane, a usb load has limited use as it is reading the ISO, so installing updates will fill it up and possibly installing a kernel update will break it.16:48
bobo123smerz: i can't copy the ifconfig result because i can't manage now to get internet on the laptop, but i don't have an "inet4 addr" line in the result, there is only "inet6 addr" in the result with an MAC address after it16:48

SomelauwWhy is it that all text is displayed in a very huge caption when using a window manager other than unity?16:51
smerzbobo123, also maybe try "sudo dhclient -r"   (it's supposed to check for dhcp). it that doesn't work try "sudo /etc/init.d/network restart"16:51
odinsbaneOkay so I have a 4gig memory stick, and unetbootin. I'm not sure how much persistent data I can allocate. When I said 4gigs it unetbootin froze.16:51
SomelauwIs there some way to fix it?16:52
odinsbaneSomelauw: what wm?16:52
smerzbobo123, and you doo see your network interface in the ifconfig list right? i.e. the kernel did detect and install your network card right? ;-)16:52
Somelauwodinsbane: wmii16:52
Somelauwodinsbane: It never had that problem before. I suspect the login manager is messing with it temporarily.16:53

Somelauwodinsbane: Just gnome-login-manager and now the ubuntu 11.10-thing.16:54

ubukoureisio, hard wires are messy when dealing with 20 devices.. :S22:18

chris__reisio, its my virtual hard drive that kvm uses(my virtual machine)22:20
skiphuffmanschnuffle,  I need to run the movie player on the LAPTOP, but control it from the NETBOOK.22:20
chris__reisio, so i guess it would be an operating system22:20
ubukoureisio, ok lets start with the easy ones.. you need some kind of "server" to do all these.. and then you need the software for the chosen os to control all this. obviously android is the one i should be using.22:21
chris__skiphuffman, you can do that with mplayer and ssh22:21
skiphuffmanssh lets me run the movie player from the laptop on the netbook, but the display is also on the netbook22:21
spaceneedleI don't want to use ext4.  I want to try something different--hopefully faster.  What should I use?22:21
ubukoureisio, is there a protocol that this projects use ?22:21

chris__reisio, youve successfully lost me22:23
reisioubukou: and you don't need any special protocols, just ordinary network stuff, optionally with wireless22:24

silverghosthey am new i need graphical solution is this a known bug22:24
ubukoureisio, ok cool. i mean i would like the server to be stand alone. no computer needed. just use the router, or an old router with firmware hack .22:24
reisiochris__: there is no ose anymore22:25
yggdrasilhow can I tell if my wireless card supports n ?22:25
reisiochris__: it used to be they had the free version (OSE) and the non-free version as separate offerings22:25
chris__reisio, sudo apt-get install virtualbox-ose says22:25
reisiochris__: now it's just free by default, and the non-free stuff is an extension to the free22:25
ubukoureisio, i only mention android cause its convinient to use it as a remote.. its always on you and always powered on.22:25
prokaGuys, is there something that can go wrong while installing new kernel using this http://www.howopensource.com/2011/08/how-to-install-linux-kernel-3-0-1-in-ubuntu-11-04-10-10-and-10-04/ method, or Synaptic?22:25
schnufflechris__: the extensions bring USB 2.0 support in22:25
reisiochris__: well you could be on an old version, or maybe Ubuntu didn't change the name22:26
chris__reisio, so I just want the virtualbox then. right?22:26
* reisio shrugs22:26
skiphuffmanschnuffle, Thanks,  Just tried mplayer, and when I run it through ssh it runs LOCALLY on the client.  Not remotely on the server.  Looking at your VLC link now22:26
* chris__ jumps22:26
reisioubukou: yeah... but a remote isn't a server...22:26
ubukoureisio, where would i get hardware compatible with regular routers?22:26
skiphuffmanschnuffle, I really appreciate your help.22:26
reisioubukou: the only reason Android is convenient as a remote is because your mobile device is convenient as a remote, and presumably came with Android already installed (convenient)22:26
ubukoureisio, i know :P :)22:26
xanguaproka: it's up to you, I find always better to use the packages the Official Ubuntu Repository provides22:26
chris__do DISPLAY=:0 mplayer -fs /path/to/video22:26
reisioubukou: hardware for what, light switches?22:26
schnuffleskiphuffman: at least giving some hints, when I can solve your original problem22:26
ubukoureisio, yes.22:27
reisioubukou: I'd ask #hardware about that22:27
prokaxangua: So, that would be the Synaptic method?22:27

silverghostsuse is cool22:34
BJD10hilo: well your probably not going to get the server on line then.. you will most likly be required to download and install additional tools ... no internet means no tools.22:34
reisioprixon`: what makes you think it's showing decimal MB?22:34
silverghostfor new comers ubuntu is best i think22:34
schnufflesilverghost: I'm right now on Suse 12.1 and with KDE it's just usable. Ubuntu and KE is a big mess, but that's just my experience22:34
BJD10besides... you would have to whipe out most of the ddwrt configs to bridge it anyway.22:34
