thiebaudeCarlos: sudo apt-get dist-upgrade00:00
CarlosThiebaude it says Unmet dependencies try using -f00:01
thiebaudeCarlos: not not sure how to use the -f command00:02
szalthiebaude: sudo apt-get -f install <- with no further arguments - CAUTION: may bust your pkg database and/or installation00:03
szal(kinda like the disclaimer you read everywhere.. not very likely, but possible)00:04
thiebaudeszal: ok thanks , carlos was asking :)00:04
aleminioHey guys, i am kinda new to ubuntu and linux and got a question. if i am creating a folder as one user and trying to upload files into it using ftp while connected with another user, it won't let me, even when i am changing the permission to 777. I have to change the user and the owner as well to match the one i'm uploading with. so why do i need permissions for "ALL" if i can't do anythhing00:05
aleminioanyway if my doesn't match the group?00:05
szalCarlos: prolly you just forgot to update your pkg database -> try 'sudo apt-get update' first00:05
thiebaudeszal: but its something i will keep in mind, thanks00:05
WHAT_UPnot ubuntu specific, but is there a way to simulate holding down of a key for n milliseconds using xvkbd or something of the sort?00:06
thiebaudeCarlos: sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade00:06
szalthiebaude: why dist-upgrade?00:06
thiebaudeszal: to upgrade all packages that need it00:07
thiebaudeszal: i remember doing that when i was offered a partial upgrade00:08

Sparky1cannot use internet. reason - cannot install ndiswrapper >.< I am clueless, and so far the google search has not helped >.<00:28
jeeves_mosswhat does this mean?  http://pastebin.com/UC4Gizpz00:29
Blue1hilo: it should be automagically created if it ever finds a file during a filecheck.  It's sort of a last ditch effort by the filesystem to preserve your files.  it need not be created.00:31

Sparky1can someone help me get ndiswrapper working?00:34
Sparky1sorry about asking again rather quickly, but i realised my first thing was only stating a problem, not asking what needs to be done to fix it00:35
trismSparky1: are you using 12.04?00:40
ngunik@HelloWorld321 I cant install pdfbox00:40
Sparky1im resorting to ndiswrapper, because im trying to get my asus WL 138g wireless card working with ubuntu00:41
trismSparky1: the ndiswrapper kernel module is not included by default anymore, you will need to download ndiswrapper-dkms from packages.ubuntu.com from another pc (and perhaps dkms and the two linux-headers package, although those may be on the iso)00:42
Sparky1i have the headers files... i found them in the /usr/src directory00:43
trismSparky1: although that appears to be a broadcom card, you may just need to fetch the firmware00:43
Sparky1the disk i have for it... i can't use, because ubuntu doesnt use exe files like that..00:44
Sparky1the disk for the wireless card, that is00:44
trismSparky1: did you look at: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WifiDocs/Driver/bcm43xx ?00:45
trismSparky1: according to https://help.ubuntu.com/community/HardwareSupportComponentsWirelessNetworkCardsAsus you may just need the firmware from there00:45
Sparky1yeah, but my card is the v1 version of this http://www.asus.com/Networks/Wireless_Adapters/WL138g_V2/#specifications00:46
trismSparky1: ahh, I'm not sure then00:47

Ctm54The short version is I can't connect to the internet via ethernet cable.  The cable is plugged in to the ethernet port on my motherboard. When I tell Ubuntu to connect automatically with DHCP, it spins for a while and then fails to connect. When I give it a manual address (and set up the appropriate routing instructions on my router) it says it's connected, but I cannot access the internet or even ping the router.  Since this is my fir01:16
Ctm54ng out out that it's a hardware or driver issue, but it seems unlikely since the OS clearly recognizes that there is an ethernet port.  Here's what I'm working with:      -ASROCK N68C-GS FX Motherboard (connecting the router directly to the ethernet port on the motherboard)     -Ubuntu Desktop 12.04 LTS     -Asus RT-N12 router01:17

Griffrez_chu Thanks, though. :D01:38
jardineworksgoddard, do you recall what your issue was?01:38
jardineworksgoddard, meaning how you fixed it01:39
goddardjardineworks: Ctm54 you got 2 errors look at your logs and try and find what it is01:39
goddardjardineworks: honestly I tried a lot of different things just starting from the connections and firewall and even ports and ssh keys01:40
Ctm54Jordan_U: i haven't tried it on another OS ubuntu is the only OS installed on this machine, and I tried before on 12.04 with the same problem and had the stupid idea that going back one version might improve things somehow...like i said, first computer build, first foray into ubuntu, i still have a 12.04 installer if that will make the difference01:40
Ctm54goddard: how do i look at my logs?01:40
goddardCtm54: is it a desktop? log viewer if not var/logs/01:40
BabygirlJordan_U, i fix it,,,,i jjust remove the <track. from the line that says FileName Format01:41
Ctm54goddard yeah its a DT, opened up log viewer now what?01:41
jardineworksgoddard, guess that last one was for Ctm54, not me :)01:41
Babygirl<track> <filename>  Jordan_U  thanks for wanting to help me01:42
Jordan_UCtm54: It probably won't make a difference, but once things are working you'll want to be using the latest release of Ubuntu, which also happens to be a release with long term support.01:42
Jordan_UBabygirl: You're welcome. I'm glad you figured it out.01:42
Ctm54Jordan_U okay noted...i can upgrade once i sort everything out right?01:42
goddardjardineworks: a fresh install and purging old openssh settings may help and could prove the quickest path if it doesn't i would look into the user account just to rule it out then look at the firewall01:42
Jordan_UCtm54: Yes, but I would recommend saving time and simply installing 12.04 instead.01:43
jardineworksgoddard, do you know the firewall commands offhand? (save me a google?)01:43
goddardjardineworks: you can easily flush the iptables01:44
goddardjardineworks: http://pastebin.com/mdSs1i0601:44
jardineworksgoddard, my iptables -L just lists the defactor INPUT, FORWARD and OUTPUT lines...01:45
Ctm54goddard: found the logs folder, what log should i be looking at?01:45
Jordan_UCtm54: Since ethernet in GNU/Linux is very reliable, and almost always Just Works™, my first guess is that your network / cable is simply not connected / configured properly (i.e. it's not a problem on Ubuntu's side of things, nor something that you can fix by changing Ubuntu's configuration).01:46
goddardjardineworks: then it probably isn't the firewall01:46
Ctm54Jordan_U the ethernet cable is definitely plugged in01:47
Jordan_UCtm54: What type of ethernet cable are you using to connect to your computer, and what is the other end of the cable connected to?01:47
jardineworksgoddard, and it can't be the user or the install because I can get to it using wifi! :S01:47
goddardjardineworks: haha maybe the router?01:47
jardineworksgoddard, I used the same router for both wifi and hard wired :S01:48
goddardjardineworks: i can block specific ips from having access to certain ports on my router01:48
Ctm54Jordan_U I think it's a Cat 5e that up until a few days ago was running from my router to a mac mini and working fine, now its running from my router (Asus RT-n12) to the ethernet port on my motherboard01:48
devilcode1Hi all01:49
devilcode1anyone one could use a little help01:49
jardineworksgoddard, checking... but I think I just left it defacto OOTB.01:49
goddardjardineworks: better to just rule everything out01:49
ki4rodevilcode1: ask your question01:50
devilcode1i just came back to my Ubuntu 12.04 LTS crashed. It has been logging me out randomly recently also. Where should i look for clues. A post suggest it was Xorg but i have no idea.01:50
Jordan_UCtm54: Crossover or straighthrough? Apple hardware had automatically switching ports before a lot of other PCs and routers got them, so a crossover cable might have worked with the mac mini while not working with the current PC (for connecting a computer to a router/switch you generally want straighthrough).01:51
Ctm54Jordan_U good question, would it say it on the cable?01:51
goddarddevilcode1: i would look at the specific date of the log out in the logs and see what happened01:51
jardineworksgoddard, nadda. defacto OOTB01:52
devilcode1which logs ?01:52
devilcode1when it happens again01:52
goddardjardineworks: short of reinstalling openssh or a new server version all together i don't know post it on ask ubuntu with the -vvv information01:52
goddardjardineworks: some one smarter then me will figure it out im sure01:53
jardineworksgoddard, Appreciate you trying to help. I am wondering if maybe something on my desktop is blocking.01:53
goddarddevilcode1: your system usually keeps logs so you can use your "Log Viewer" to see xorg operation01:53
devilcode1out of interest i belive it is either google chrome or netbeans that's causing the logout01:54
goddarddevilcode1: uninstall them and see if it happens again01:54
goddarddevilcode1: but i would look at the logs first01:54
goddardjardineworks: ya could be .. rule everything out you can and post your results01:55
devilcode1thanks goddard01:56
Jordan_UCtm54: No, I'm looking for a good guide explaining how to tell the difference but you'll need to look at the colors of the pins at both ends of the cable.01:56
subcoolOerHeks, none of them worked out- thanks :/02:00
SuperMiguelany of you guys running ubuntu on an 27 "iMac 2011??02:02
Jordan_UCtm54: Look at the diagrams at the right on this page (the ones actually showing the plug are the easiest to use for when you yourself have to look at the ends of the plug): http://www.cablesplususa.com/rj45-utp-guide.php with a straight through cable the colors of the pins are in the same order at both ends of the cable.02:02

Jihui_Choiin LAMP, 12.04, when I type, apache can't recognize index.php, but index.html works well. How can I fix this?02:24
iepaJihui_Choi, you have to activate php shell on apache02:25
Jihui_Choiiepa, php works fine, if I type localhost/sub/index.php, it works. but localhost/sub doesn't02:26
escottvychune, delete whatever you want. worst case the logs are lost until the daemon gets signalled from the next rotate cycle02:26
iepachange index.html filename02:26
vychuneescott: YAYYYYYY02:26
vychuneJihui_Choi: your html file is all apache sees when you dont specify a filename02:27
sacarlsonJihui_Choi: for me html has presidence over php so if your index.html is present it in that dir it will run that one02:27
Jihui_Choisacarlson: so I change directoryindex on httpd.conf, like this directoryindex index.php index.html .... but no change02:28
Jihui_Choieven I remove index.html from directoryindex, only index.html works02:29
sacarlsonJihui_Choi: you shouldn't have to change anything other than be sure that index.html isn't present02:29
Ctm54anybody else have any more ideas for what's wrong with my ethernet?02:31
Jihui_ChoiI installed redmine and ruby 1.9.1... I think after installing redmine, this problem occurred.02:31
vychuneCtm54: what's going on with it?02:32
Ctm54vychune it won't connect to the internet, even though it shows up when i run ifconfig, can't even ping the router, doesn't seem like it's getting an IPV4 address02:33
battlehandsI need to format my harddrive to NTFS.  It is currently ext4.  I have ubuntu running and I cannot unmount the drive (seem to remember that I need to do this in order to format).  I have gparted open.  Please advise.02:33
escottCtm54, what is your routing table02:33
escottbattlehands, boot a livecd02:34
Ctm54escott i'm brand new to ubuntu, sorry for a stupid question but how do i pull that up?02:34
Jihui_Choiiepa , sacarlson, see this one. doesn't work. but works.02:34
escottCtm54, "route" in a terminal02:34
battlehandsescott, boot from a livecd, unmount, format, then run my new install after restart?02:34
escottbattlehands, yes02:35
vychunebattlehands: if you format your new install will be gone02:35

Ctm54escott ubottu yeah my ubuntu machine isn't connected to the interwebs at all, typing to you from my macbook, gimme a second and i'll pastebin it with a flash drive02:36
escottCtm54, yes. sorry that would make things more difficult :)02:37
Jihui_Choianyone knows about this problems? doesn't work, but is ok.02:37
mish_Has anyone managed to get Ubuntu installed on a Dell R820 ?02:38
vychuneJihui_Choi: give me one sec02:38
Jihui_Choivychune: sure. thanks :)02:38
Ctm54escott ubottu aaaaaaaaaaaand my box just froze...gimme a minute02:38
escottCtm54, are freezes common?02:39
Ctm54no, but what is common is my machine not powering down correctly02:39
Ctm54and i have to do a hard restart02:39
vychuneJihui_Choi: do you see the source code when you do the one that doesnt work?02:39
Jihui_Choivychune: no. it said just "Page not found" funny thing is if I make index.html, opens index.html02:41
xanferchin ho ?02:41
vychunerename index.html to in.html for me then try again02:41
Ctm54escott obottu http://pastebin.com/C7peexH002:42
xanferho me tu02:42
sacarlsonJihui_Choi: did you modify this file? /etc/apache2/mods-available/dir.conf02:42
Jihui_Choivychune: only index.html works. no index.htm, no in.html, not even file list..02:43
Jihui_Choiyes! exactly wtf02:43
sacarlsonJihui_Choi: in default it should search in the sequence seen in the file /etc/apache2/mods-available/dir.conf02:43
Jihui_Choiyou know what? works very well02:43
Jihui_Choi is for redmine.. and I believe redmine made this problem02:44
escottCtm54, and what happens when you ping
vychunecheck out the file sacarlson is talking about02:44
escottCtm54, everything is lost?02:44
Ctm54escott destination host unreachable02:44
vychuneescott: you thinking that might not be the right gateway too?02:44
Jihui_Choisacarlson: I know that, so I changed that file. actually directoryindex setting, though.02:45
Jihui_Choiit doesn't affect anything02:45
subcoolcan someone walk with me through some disk managment/understanding?02:45
subcoolit should be quite easy02:45
sacarlsonJihui_Choi: well you shouldn't have needed to change it so that must be why it broken02:45
escottvychune, doesn't matter if its the right gateway or not. its on the subnet if its there it should respond02:45
Jihui_Choieven I deleted all of directoryindex... index.html works, but not else..02:45
Ctm54escott 100% packet loss02:45
escottCtm54, given that your routing table looks fine the only thing i can imagine is that your network is statically configured to the 192.168.1.* subnet, but you are connected to something that is not a 192.168.1.* subnet02:46
Ctm54okay so how do i fix that?02:46
Ctm54escott see above02:47
vychunesubcool: whats up?02:47
subcoolvychune, hey, i have dev/sda1-5 i can only navigate one of them?02:47
escottCtm54, "cat /etc/networks" it should only mention link-local and then "cat /etc/network/interfaces" it should only mention auto lo and iface lo02:48
subcoolvychune, id like to find out why sda2 is labeled var and has NOTHING on it, i want access to sda1, and from there, maybe kill sda2, and combine it with unallocated space.02:48
Jihui_Choisacarlson, vychune : I remove directoryindex from /etc/apache2/mods-available/dir.conf.. but still opens index.html, but no index.php02:48
Jihui_Choithis means /etc/apache2/mods-available/dir.conf doesn't work correctly02:49
subcoolvychune, thing is- while i open dolphin, i only have access to... THIS paritition. :/02:49
Katronixon a ubuntu server, do you need to tell it what IPs it has access to anywhere?02:49
Ctm54escott gonna pastebin results to you in a sec02:49
escottCtm54, no need to copy and paste those. it should only be a couple lines for each. if its more than that then its wrong02:50
uisubcool: try with sudo02:50
uisubcool: sudo gparted02:50
Ctm54escott the second one was wrong02:50
sacarlsonJihui_Choi: what method of install did you use to install LAMP in ubuntu?  give us the link you used as reference02:50
Katronixfor instance if your server has 5 IPs do you need to inform it of that?02:50
vychunesubcool: can you see anything from CLI02:50
Jihui_Choisacarlson: basically, I installed 12.04 server and I installed lamp when I installed OS.02:51
Ctm54escott truth in advertising: i had modified stuff earlier on advice from someone else about how to fix this02:51
Jihui_Choiafter that I installed redmine..02:51
Jihui_Choifollowed this page http://www.xunilarium.com/2012/05/how-to-install-redmine-201-on-ubuntu.html02:52
sacarlsonJihui_Choi: there is no package lamp  what did you install?02:52
escottCtm54, they probably had you add various lines concerning eth0 to interfaces02:52
escottCtm54, I would take those out and focus on getting network manager to work, but its up to you. the problem is i don't know what the correct subnet is02:52
Ctm54escott, yup, and i'm pretty sure i understand what all those lines mean but obviously that wasn't working02:53
escottCtm54, on your mac you could run ifconfig and route and see if 192.168.1.* is correct02:53
Jihui_Choisacarlson: no. basic lamp works well without extra packages02:53
Jihui_Choiand I think apache recognized index.php before installing redmine.. I'm not sure though.02:54
Ctm54escott no i know for a fact that my MBP has the IP address so i think that's the right subnet02:54
sacarlsonJihui_Choi: I don't see the package lamp-server in my synaptic on ubuntu 10.04  and I'm not sure what this package does  libapache2-mod-passenger02:55
escottCtm54, yeah sounds alright02:56
Jihui_Choisacarlson: it doesn't, but I installed libapache2-mod-passenger when I install redmine..02:56
arashbhey guys, i'm livebooted into ubuntu right now, can someone help me with installing .scripts into my system?02:56
Jihui_Choiapt-get install ruby-full libmysqlclient-dev libmagickwand-dev libapache2-mod-passenger02:57
Ctm54gonna take out the eth0 from the interfaces, escott, gimme a sec02:57
escottCtm54, and that cable works for the mac as well02:57
zykotick9sacarlson: fyi lamp-server is a tasksel "task" instead of a package02:57
sacarlsonzykotick9: ok thanks02:57
Ctm54escott it had been working for a different mac02:57
OY1Rq: is there a way (with gui) to completly delete a file in ubuntu ?02:58
AriiiWow.... XUbuntu looks a lot better than Lubuntu, and I heard it's lighter too. Is this true? I've heard Lubuntu being recommended more often too.02:58
=== lonewolf is now known as Guest46312
vychuneAriii: it depends on your computer and your preferance02:59
Ctm54escott took out the eth0 stuff, now when i click the networking thing at the top of the screen it says device not managed02:59
zykotick9Ariii: Xubuntu is similar (only slightly less) resource hungry then old gnome202:59
escottCtm54, you would probably need to restart the networking service02:59
sacarlsonJihui_Choi: well you could regress by purge of apache2 and reinstall before the changes you made or maybe just create a index.html file that redirects to your desired index.php02:59
Ctm54escott remind me the command for that plz03:00
escottCtm54, try service networking restart03:00
vychuneJihui_Choi: or purge redmine03:00
Ariiizykotick: So, which would be better: XUbuntu or an old version of Ubuntu?03:00
Ctm54escott "restart: unknown instance: "03:00
zykotick9!tab | Ariii03:00
ubottuAriii: You can use your <tab> key for autocompletion of nicknames in IRC, as well as for completion of filenames and programs on the command line.03:00
escottCtm54, try service network-manager restart then03:01
zykotick9Ariii: don't use unsupported versions, xubuntu is slightly lighter then gnome2 (but only slightly).  10.04 still has some support with gnome203:01
vychuneescott: shouldnt he sudo that?03:01
escottvychune, yes Ctm54 ^^^03:02
Ctm54escott vychune figured out to sudo, now what?03:02
escottCtm54, now see if network manager will manage eth003:02
Ctm54escott yup it will03:02
escottCtm54, probably want to plug/unplug the cord03:02
vychunesee if the check for enable networking is ticked too03:02
Ariiizykotick9: Thanks!03:03
vychuneon the wifi icon thing03:03
vychune(that has tripped me many a time lol)03:03
vychunenot saying thats your issue just checking03:03
Ctm54escott vychune plugged and unplugged, enable networking checked03:03
Ctm54still same results03:03
Ctm54escott vychune and now when i hit route no numbers come up03:04
AriiiI know I have no hope of getting even Xubuntu to work well on a 366 MHz iBook, but it did pretty well in MintPPC, so should it work well with FVWM well in Ubuntu?03:04
zykotick9Ctm54: if you're getting "not managed" it's because the device has settings in /etc/network/interfaces (remove that and reboot or ifdown/ifup)03:05
Ctm54zykotick9: no it's managed now it just can't connect and now nothing is coming up in my routing table03:05
kanupatarhi good morning all03:06
escottCtm54, so go into the network manager gui and see what it says about the connection. is it set to DHCP03:06
zykotick9Ctm54: ok sorry (my bad).  i have no suggestions...03:06
subcoolui vychune i did not open gparted with root, no. I dont really know the CLI commonds to do this all. I just wanted to see whats on my 130gb drive, and super empty partition.03:06
kanupatarI have installed ubuntu..but my machine become freezes randomly when i log in it...but windows it is working fine.03:06
uigparted will open inside a window03:06
Ctm54escott IPv4 is set to DHCP and require IPv4 for connection to complete, IPv6 is set to ignore03:07
kanupatarI have installed ubuntu..but my machine become freezes randomly when i log in it...but windows it is working fine.03:07
kanupatarany idea?03:07
uisubcool: I was wondering whether you would not see because you have not enough privileges... hence usage of 'sudo'03:08
uiand to make up partitions you need gparted, which opens in a window and must be run with sudo as well03:08
kanupatarI have installed ubuntu..but my machine become freezes randomly when i log in it...but windows it is working fine.03:08
kanupatarany idea?03:08

zykotick9!gksudo | ui DON'T use sudo with GUI apps03:10
ubottuui DON'T use sudo with GUI apps: If you need to run graphical applications as root, use « gksudo », as it will set up the environment more appropriately. Never just use "sudo"! (See http://psychocats.net/ubuntu/graphicalsudo to know why)03:10
kanupatarvychune: eccentric!03:10
escottCtm54, must not be getting a lease offer. you can manually set the ip address in network manager (and accomplish what you accomplished with /etc/network/interfaces) but im not sure what that would accomplish03:10
uithanks a lot zykotick903:10
Ctm54escott might this be something i have to fix with my router?03:11
uisubcool: sorry for above mistake, do 'gksudo nautilus'03:11
escottCtm54, maybe. it would help to know if the router is detecting that there is another computer on the other end of that wire03:11
escottCtm54, but i dont know how that would be done03:11
vychuneescott: Ctm54 : he would need to look on his router for his config ip address03:12
Ctm54escott: vychune: it's not showing up on my router's network map but when i reboot the linux box it shows up in my mac's finder for a few seconds before going away, and my routers routing log shows an expired DCHP lease for my linux box's mac address03:13
escottCtm54, are the clocks in sync?03:14
Ctm54escott what clocks and how would i check that?03:14
vychuneTHE TIME!03:15
vychuneoh yeah03:15
kanupatarvychune: time is over :(03:15
vychunedidnt think of think03:15
vychunedidnt think of that03:15
vychunekanupatar: still working on you03:15
kanupatarvychune: who?03:15
escottCtm54, (a) does the linux system show the correct time (b) does the mac show the correct time (c) from the mac if you go to and see if it shows the correct time03:16
vychunekanupatar: im looking for your problem03:16
usr13__Ctm54: date03:16
L3topkanupatar: here or there... lspci -nn | grep VGA03:17
Ctm54escott i have just adjusted the linux to show the correct time, router does not show correct time but (i think) is synced to the right time zone03:17
kanupatarvychune: more explanation: the machine randomly freezes with out any reason... even i freezes if did n't open any applications03:17
HelloWorld321To setup R, I'm looking for MySQL's base dir, lib dir & include path; I'm looking in /etc/mysql/my.cnf, and I see: "basedir = /usr"; "datadir = /var/lib/mysql"; and "!includedir /etc/mysql/conf.d/".  Is that them?03:17
escottCtm54, you can also check that the DHCP lease time is a reasonably long period (this is in the router config)03:17
vychunekanupatar: does it always do it at a certain point?03:18
kanupatarL3top: am using intel..i know the graphics driver bug for nvidia vga for 12.0403:18
kanupatarvychune: no..it is random03:18
Ctm54it's set to 86400, escott, should be good right?03:18
* L3top doesn't know why this is like pulling teeth... doesn't know why he continues to pull.03:18
kanupatarvychune: the complete machine become freezes..only way to get rid of that is force reboot03:18
escottCtm54, so that is 1 day which is fine03:19
Ctm54escott, although the lease list says 45 seconds under my machines mac address...03:19
escottCtm54, you might clear your leases for that mac03:19
Ctm54escott how do i do that? any idea?03:20
L3topkanupatar: run memtest for a few cycles.03:20
escottCtm54, router dependent. look in the routers administration webpage, or reboot the router03:20
kanupatarL3top: already tried and no issues either03:21
vychunei've run out of ideas on this end sorry03:22

escottCtm54_, im afraid i dont really know what to suggest. sounds like a router problem of some kind.03:27
abimaelescott: umm, no, how would i do that?03:28
Ctm54_escott would it be worth the time and effort to set up a whole new router?03:28
escottCtm54_, the fact that it appears briefly in finder suggests that some kind of broadcast messages are being sent but then you get kicked off the network03:28
abimaelescott: chown is change ownership right?03:28
zykotick9arashb: patches are typically applied to source code, then recompiled?  sounds like you're trying to do something "outisde" of ubuntu03:28
escottCtm54_, that depends on how important it is to you. someone who is sitting in front of it might be able to diagnose what is going on03:29

gld1982ltdhello all. is there anyone here who can create a debian package out of files i have? the files are an app called conky control. it is used on voyager linux. i have translated the app to english and have add the appropriate desktop files. i have no clue how to make a debian package so others can enjoy this app.03:44

gld1982ltdL3top: yeah, i have read through all the documentation.....well, some of it. it is a lot to take in all at once. checkinstall will not work since this is an app that is not in any repo, and has no source file. the app is merely a couple of scripts that are used on voyager linux.03:49

mi3 Hello... I'm wondering if I can merge an ext4 partition with my current ext4 partition that my ubuntu installation is on.. is that possible?04:40
kriskropdmi3, do you mean like, copying and pasting the files over into one partition?04:41
mi3kriskropd: yeah04:41
kriskropdmi3, yeah, you can mount both partitions and simply copy the files over, then after you could merge the two partitions into whichever is your "current" partition with gparted04:42
mi3kriskropd: that wont result in data loss, right ?04:43
Loshkimi3: er, you have backups, right? In case it all goes horribly wrong...?04:44
mi3Loshki: yeah04:44
Loshkimi3: might be easiest to wipe the partitions, merge them, then restore from backup on the new, merged partition. Tedious, but fairly bulletproof...04:45
mi3i made one just in case... is this going to wipe the file system?04:45
mi3Loshki: umm sounds easy....04:46
kriskropdmi3, yeah, I would backup just in case04:46
kriskropdmi3, anything could happen04:46
mi3understood, guys04:46
mi3I will backup the data04:46
Loshkimi3: as long as your backups are readable/reliable, there's not much you can't attempt...04:46
Loshkimi3: in general, I would assume any partition resizing will trash the data. If you get lucky and it doesn't, then it's saved you a bit of time restoring. But either way, you can recover04:48
mi3Loshki: thats what I was thinking, you can merge a partition without risking data loss04:49
mi3you cant merger a partition04:49
FloodBot1mi3: Please don't flood; use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste; don't use Enter as punctuation.04:50

OY1Rhow do i whipe the free space on a partition ?04:50
mi3OY1R: use sfill.04:51
kriskropdmi3,  loshki has the right mindset, I would never mess with partitions without a reliable backup, but also from experience, every merge I've ever had to do with gparted has worked flawlessly and easily; should be self explanatory when you get there04:51
Loshkimi3: if you're just merging neighboring partitions so that the main one expands into its next door one, then *maybe* the data will be preserved, but I don't know anyone who *guarantees* that, so, backups...04:51
mi3OY1R: sudo apt-get install secure-delete04:51
mi3kriskropd: Loshki yeah right guys, I guess backups are important....04:51
kriskropdmi3: it's only your data :304:52
Loshkikriskropd: yeah. Been there, done that. Had to face my team/boss. Wish someone had said to me before I started that backups were crucial to a quick recovery...04:52

I've upgraded ubuntu 10.04 to 10.10 and now after while it's booting, I get an image of green, white, red and blue flickering snow garbage. Nothing works except for ctrl-alt-del. I tried to download the driver from the ati/amd's site. Installed it. It told me that fglrx was already installed, I need to remove it first, so I removed it before installing the dr05:06

zamutniiAfter upgrading ubuntu 11.04 to 11.10, my graphics freezes during boot with flickering colored dots, covering the monitor. ATI Mobility Radeon HD547005:27
Loshkiduckx: both client and server have to agree on which port they're using. You need to edit both files, or at least sshd_config and then use -p 9999 with the client05:27

I only am able to force reboot by holding the power05:34
zamutniibutton for a few secs.05:34

fearolopaulus68: i want to open a port number using nmap .How can i do that ?05:36
Loshkiduckx: then ironically, you've done something wrong, since the client should try port 22 by default, while the server should be listening on port 9999.05:36
ScrappieDozamutnii, probably should remove it - why dont you install the driver from ubuntu or a ppa?05:36
duckxyea the server is set to listen on 888005:37
paulus68fearolo: why do you want to use nmap for that? nmap is a scanning tool if you need to open ports you need to do that through your firewall/router05:37
duckxwhen i ssh in from the computer im using now .. i have to do ssh foo@bar.com -p 999905:37

deffragiceroot: Is that Pre-released updates option as I see under Updates tab in Software Sources? I'm facing the problem exactly as described in the bug report. I was thinking of trying what was suggested in comment 3 as it probably helped others06:15
Loshkivampirnata: something like "sudo hdparm -S 0 <device>". Check your man page for your version of ubuntu.06:18

trijntjeHi all, nautilus sorts the folders in my home folder based on last acces date, instead of on name. How can I change this?06:22
zixxytrijntje, edit > preferences > sort by?06:25
ScrappieDotrijntje, select window right click, arrange icons06:25
Loshkisbarcteam: it wouldn't be my first action, unless you happen to have a spare graphics card lying around. I run similar hardware to yours, using the built-in intel graphics and my 12.04 uptime is currently 11 days. Then again, I don't run the standard DE/GUI stuff. I can easily believe the new DEs have memory leaks, the only odd thing is if that's the case, why haven't more people reported it?06:25

auronandaceacemeister: 64bit can address more ram (above 4gb)07:42
L3topacemeister: type the program followed by the /path/file you want it to open. The difference between 64 bit is that it will run 64 bit programs. It is a different architecture, that mostly just runs 32 bit stuff anyway because so little actually uses 64 bit arch.07:42

acemeisterl3top just reinstall over it?07:47
jrdnnacemeister: You don't need 64bit for lots of RAM(PAE does that) the benefit is if you run CPU intensive programs that do math on 64bit types which run faster in amd64 mode than emulated or with MMX, and also loads that can make use of twice as many registers (CPU intensive apps)07:47

fidelif you dont want to reinstall - then fixing is the way to go - therefor try to understand what is broken - therefore start by describing what issues you really have (would be my way)09:04

__Hayes__L3top, How do i do that?09:07
L3topJihui_Choi: cd /var/log/apt    look through your history, and sudo apt-get uninstall the things you do not want.09:07
hpuser4455I installed 12.04 via the non-pae mini cd with lxde desktop.09:07
fidelJihui_Choi: and what do you expect now?09:08
L3top__Hayes__: exactly like that. unset http_proxy09:08
fidelyou are not willing to do a clean install - nor willing to start messing around?09:08
ikoniahpuser4455: you will need to reinstall09:08
fideloption 3 - pay someone & let it be fixed by him ;)09:08
ikoniahpuser4455: if you have lost/corrupted files.09:08
geirhahpuser4455: sounds odd that a game package would do that. The symptoms somewhat resembles what happens when you fill the root fileystem09:08
L3topJihui_Choi: sudo apt-get remove   not uninstall... dont know where my head is this morning.09:09
hpuser4455geirha..ok..will check my hd space.09:09

__Hayes__L3top: It doesn't work, same message again...09:09
L3top__Hayes__: in fact, rebooting will probably bring this env variable back into existence. Figuring out WHAT is setting that will be the next chore09:10
Jihui_Choithank you both of you :)09:10
fidelJihui_Choi: timemachine wouldnt help either - if you dont know the moment to restore09:10
fidelJihui_Choi: advice for the future- consider using some kind of VM for testing things09:10
fidelkeeps your main station/box clean and makes you way more flexible09:10
fidelgood luck09:10
L3top__Hayes__: sudo -s      login and unset it again. then type exit. Though I would expect sudo would simply carry over your current env... I cannot see how this is still occurring. geirha would know though :P09:11
Jihui_Choifidel: yeah I should've.. actually I did, but now my vps is dirty. I don't know why though09:11
geirha__Hayes__, L3top: By default, sudo will ignore most env variables, including http_proxy. You have to specifically tell it to pass it on via sudoers09:12
hpuser4455my hd is 18% full.  Can i simply re-install the base system while keeping my installed apps?09:12
hpuser4455so when i re-install, it will overwrite the corrupted packages and keep the rest.09:13
L3topgeirha: the problem is... that a proxy has been set, somewhere... and I am trying to get it unset so he can do what he needs to do with regards to a gpg add... then try and figure out what is setting it... and stop it.09:13
ikoniahpuser4455: no, it will re-install the whole OS09:13
geirhahpuser4455: how full your harddrive doesn't necessarily say how full the root partition is09:13
__Hayes__i did with sudo -s and unset it and same result.09:14
hpuser4455geirha..actually sda2 which is ubuntu's root is 18%..so plenty of space, according to df -a09:14
L3topgeirha: <__Hayes__> ?: invalid HTTP proxy (http://localhost:4001 ): bad URI      <L3top>__Hayes__: can you please type env | grep -i proxy           and tell me if there is an htttp proxy there? <__Hayes__>  http_proxy=http://localhost:400109:15
geirhahpuser4455: Ok, then I'd try to get into the system and run dpkg --configure -a  to reconfigure all packages that haven't been configured yet. Might help. If not, I'd consider trying dpkg-reconfigure -a too. The latter reconfigures ALL packages, so it'll take quite some time.09:16
geirha__Hayes__: does this output anything?  sudo env | grep http_proxy09:17
__Hayes__geirha: I doesn09:17
geirha__Hayes__: Then that proxy might be set in apt's config09:17
__Hayes__that means?09:18
L3topgeirha: ok __Hayes__: unset http_proxy       so I would expect it to be gone now...09:18
geirha__Hayes__: grep -i proxy /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/*09:18

JaymesKellerHi, I'm having trouble with installing Ubuntu with my Asus M4N75TD motherboard in AHCI mode. When I attempt to boot a live USB, it hangs on startup, and unfortunatly, I do not see any useful error messages. I have tried a BIOS update, but all that did was fix a APCI error. Are there any solutions avalible to try? As a side note, I have attempted "noahci", but it doesn't help.09:28
__Hayes__geirha: /etc/environment:HTTP_PROXY=http://localhost:4001 # +ANON_MARK+09:29
__Hayes__geirha:  +ANON_MARK+ Don't change this while anon-proxy manages this variable.09:29
hayloJaymesKeller, not every usb or dvd one makes always works, i would keep trying. But try a different medium ie: different usb, different technique for putting it on usb09:30

JaymesKellerL3top: I have attempted running the install in IDE mode, and it still seems to sulk.09:31
geirha__Hayes__: Anyway, something called anon-proxy has added that to your /etc/environment. I've never heard of it, but if you don't use it anymore, it should be safe to remove it form /etc/environment09:31
hayloJaymesKeller, some bios have "OS install mode disable/enable" look for something like that, and make sure you have boot priority set so usb is at least included09:31
IlikeMoosehas anyone ever had any problems with rhythmbox screwing with their cd-rom drive?09:32
__Hayes__geirha: I cannot install any utility/program/anthing via apt-get it just gets to 0% [waiting for headers] and stuck at it..09:32
geirha__Hayes__: Well, sounds like you've run this anon-proxy thing at some point, but apparently not anymore, or it's faulty, so remove or comment out those lines. sudoedit /etc/environment09:34
L3top__Hayes__: that is the reason... edit /etc/environment  and hash out/remove all of those http_proxy lines09:34
JaymesKellerhaylo: Boot priority is on, but I don't see an install mode in the BIOS.09:34
hayloJaymesKeller, also try putting the iso onto the usb directly with cat or dd. all those pen drive tools get kind of iffy09:34

KM0201i've kinda grown fond of Rhythmbox however.09:46
IlikeMoosei'm running this on a pentium4 with HT on an old hp compaq and rhythmbox really hates my cd-rom drive09:48
IlikeMooseplus it wouldn't play my playlist file from di.fm when i tried to get it to play09:49
L3topIlikeMoose: do you have an ubuntu support question?09:52
hayloIlikeMoose, rythmbox is a suck program. if you need a gui for music use clementine. or play from command line09:53
hayloor just use vlc, for movies and music. your time fooling with GUIs will be better spent on vlc09:53
hayloit is a much more profeesional and protable tool09:54
IlikeMooseL3top, i think i solved my support problem by uninstalling rhythmbox09:55
L3topWell... welcome to Ubuntu IlikeMoose... but this is why polling is not allowed here, because you get a bunch of people arguing about the thing they like/dislike... and when it is active, it makes it REALLY annoying to scroll through to get info to help people. Chit chat etc should happen in #ubuntu-offtopic. Like I said, not a big deal atm... but still not allowed.09:58
IlikeMooseL3top,  sorry i didn't know09:59
L3topjust an fyi. Like I said... its no skin off my nose since its dead... but even dead there are approaching 2000 people in this room. If 1/10th of them gave an opinion, it would be unreadable.10:00

Nuclear-muffin27haylo, nautilus?10:05
Nuclear-muffin27how do i searc for it?10:06
hayloyeah, your file manager is called nautilus, it has a search feature that is very robust10:06
Nuclear-muffin27how do i use it?10:06
L3topdavid__: what is the name of the iso you downloaded?10:06
haylojust open the file manager and look for the search box. you will be in in nautilus when looking at your home folder etc. .10:06

david__where do i find the name of my iso?10:08
qbitzaI formatted the primary partition with ExtFS4, but didn't update the partition table type10:08
L3topWhere did you download it to david__?10:08
Nuclear-muffin27L3top, in dash?10:09
david__a cd10:09
L3topdavid__: no. You had to download it before you put it on a cd.10:09
david__oh, sorry.  it must have been in windows.......10:10
qbitzaSo afterward I did that and now I can't access the partition anymore10:10
qbitzaHelppp, please!10:10
hayloqbitza, what partitioning tool are you using ?10:10
qbitzaNo superblocks can be found :(10:10
Nuclear-muffin27L3top, do i seach in dash?10:11
qbitzaI used the disk manager (GUI) to update10:11
david__is there an easy way to find the name without going back into my windows downloads?  i would have to restart my computer to do that, thereby negating the effectiveness of this chat session10:11
qbitzahaylo, I also tried diskscan (?)10:11
L3topNuclear-muffin27: in dash you can type nautilus... in nautilus there will be a magnifying glass in the upper right corner... click it... type the file you are looking for... hit search.10:12
haylodavid__,   uname -a   will give you your kernel, maybe that is what you need ?10:12

Nuclear-muffin27L3top, its not there but i had it somewhere its also not in trash10:14
david__thanks L3top......10:14
hayloqbitza, what data is on the usb ? yeah when you changed the pertition table, you unlinked all the data10:14
L3topNuclear-muffin27: what is the name of the file you are looking for?10:14
qbitzahaylo, sorry no it's "Disk Utility" (c) Red Hat10:14
qbitzahaylo, crud10:15
qbitzahaylo, backups, photos, movies ...10:15
Nuclear-muffin27L3top, well i changed the name dont know what happend i changed name and it was gone10:15
hayloqbitza, in the future, keep your partition table intact, think of that as the very begining pages of the book10:15
qbitzahaylo, not stuff I want to lose, esp. the photos10:15
qbitzahaylo, Is there anything that can rebuild it?10:16
hayloqbitza, then you need to stop messing with and it get it to someone who can recover the data10:16
hayloi think you should duplicate it on another usb, and try your self10:16
L3topNuclear-muffin27: I have no idea how to help you. Sorry.10:16
hayloyou can even make clones of that disk and try different things10:16
Nuclear-muffin27L3top, do you know where i can find help?10:17
hayloPM me, and il terach you how to clone a disk, if you want. its complicated10:17
geirhaqbitza: You might have luck with testdisk, though I'd start with making an image of the whole disk with ddrescue first10:17
L3topNot for the problem of "I renamed it something I dont know"... no I dont.10:17
hayloim just a ubuntu user, not a dev, or admin qbitza10:17

Nuclear-muffin27Does anyone know how to find missing files?10:17
klj613how do i keep a folder (and its sub files / folders) always be chown kristian:www-data ?10:17
L3topI can find any file... but you have to know what it is called.10:17
qbitzageirha, Tried that, but because it could not locate any superblocks it doesn't want to continue10:18
IlikeMoosequestion..why is it that the 12.04 desktop install never asked me to set up a root password for the system. if i would have selected a server install would it have made me choose a root password?10:18
L3topqbitza: did you try fsck -f ?10:18
geirha!undelete | qbitza10:18
ubottuqbitza: Some tools to recover lost data are listed and explained at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/DataRecovery - Recovering deleted files on !ext3 filesystems can be virtually impossible, although methods that might work is some cases are described at at http://www.xs4all.nl/~carlo17/howto/undelete_ext3.html and http://projects.izzysoft.de/trac/ext3undel10:18
MonkeyDustIlikeMoose  type !root to find out why10:19
ubottuDo not try to guess the root password, that is impossible. Instead, realise the truth... there is no root password. Then you will see that it is 'sudo' that grants you access and not the root password. Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo10:19
qbitzaL3top, Yes, I did - same problem with the superblocks though10:19
qbitzageirha, thanks, I'll go read up on that10:19
L3topqbitza: I would expect the -f to try and fix that.10:19
Guest54422okay this is going to sound dumb, but what is the linux/ubuntu equivalent to a .exe file?10:20

klj613i chown a folder, but when i create a new file in the folder, its not the chown i want. how do i solve this?10:23
KM0201klj613: chown -R ?10:23
hayloGuest54422, any file can be executable in linux. .exe usually stands for binaries that have been compiled for microsoft ( i think)10:23
klj613KM0201, yes, then i create another new file then i got to do chown again, and again, and again10:24
KM0201klj613: also, if you're "creating" a new folder or file in a directory, it's going to have whatever permissions are granted the person who is creating it...10:24
KM0201so if you create it with "sudo"... it's going to be owned by root.10:24

MetalGodWinIf you're after watching youtube-clips.. then you can goto youtube.com/html5 and activate html5. Then you wont need flash for youtube atleast.11:01
haylodaniel2, you may want to recreate the .dot folder on your home folder that has the stored info from your web browser. then when its remade, it might use the now defaut flash a bit better11:02
jpdstewlz: Because the > bit isn't done as root.11:02
dc5alaDYSW, but does not seem to be something to worry about at least, modem-manager likes to spam :P Even when i plugin a serial usb device modem-manager gets excited11:02

crazyandi861MonkeyDust: using xfce4 in fact, think it's more of a graphics driver problem13:13
fabricio_So how i put Xfce 4 on ubuntu 12.04? Or that interface is just for xubuntu?13:14

crazyandi861anyone else?13:17

MonkeyDustcrazyandi861  downgrade is not a good idea, or it would be fresh install of an older system13:17

fidellion: what part dont you understand?13:27
lionhow i can make this normally to  download from internet?13:27
compdoclion, it thinks you want to use the cd13:27
fidelin short: your linux is using packages-sources list to check what software is available13:27
fidellion: change your apt-sources13:27
BluesKajcrazyandi861, perhaps you can explain your situation , what graphics driver are tying to go back to ?13:28
fideleither using a gui or cli -> /etc/apt/sources.list13:28
compdocwith the gui, if you use Desktop13:28
fidellion: disable the install CD as source and enable the default online sources - rerun apt-get update && apt-get upgrade and you are most likely done13:28
robertzaccourHow do I set up a print job in LibreOffice so that it prints full pages and not half a page? I tried to print something and it goes to a 2nd page after half a page is printed.13:29
fidelbut you should try to understand the issue in the first part - otherwise it will be hard to handle issues like that13:29
geirhalion: Pastebin the contents of /etc/apt/sources.list if you're unsure how to disable the cdrom source13:30

daniel2danileigh79: sudo apt-get install google-chrome-stable couldn't find package14:19
danileigh79k1l: Because forefox is a virus imo... chrome is streamlined, works wonders, and doesn't hog half your system resources like firefox14:19

majdhey #ubuntu - i'm running 12.04 on my company's machine. They have an internal network with a server hosting svn repos. I want to make a dns entry that points me to the correct ip address when i write the server's name. What's the best way to do that?14:20
majdthe internet is saying that i shouldn't be editing resolv.conf14:20
danileigh79hbx: yeah, opera is good, don't like that it's built on presto though14:21

kristenbbhi, I'm trying to checkout a project in svn. I received an error saying Password for '(null)' GNOME keyring:.  I thought this might be caused by gnome-keyring, which I don't use, so I removed it with apt-get and also removed ~/.gnome2/keyrings/login.keyring.16:19
kristenbbNow when I try to checkout, it says p11-kit: couldn't load module: /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/pkcs11/gnome-keyring-pkcs11.so: /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/pkcs11/gnome-keyring-pkcs11.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory.  Then it asks for my password, but even though I enter it correctly, nothing happens.  What's wrong ?16:20
gutgutkristen, could be that two apps check your credentials, but the one with the password fails to check against polkit16:21
gutgutkristen, reinstall gnome-keyring and see what happens16:21
kristenbbbut I don't want to use gnome-keyring16:21
kristenbbI'll install it anyway for test purposes, but in the end it's not the solution I'm looking for16:21
gutgutkristen, then dont use software that depend on it16:22

BarkingFishit's possible that dpkg -r has taken the files off, but we may need to purge anything leftover, so if I can see what's in there, I can create a nice short regex for you to use to shift anything that needs to go, JokesOnYou77 :)22:12

cihhanHi all! Im having some problems with the installation of Ubuntu 12.04 Server. When it comes to the "partition disks", I only see (1) Configure iSCSI, (2) a completely blank line, (3) Undo, (4) Finish23:30
jordan_GI_Jack, what is jockey? lol23:30
GI_Jackit should be called "additional drivers"23:30
cihhanany ideas?23:30
L3topjordan_: I would just sudo apt-get nvidia-current-updates23:30
GI_Jackjordan: no, I'd run jockey23:30
jordan_L3top, I tried that.23:31
jordan_GI_Jack, there are 2 options in there, "version current" and "post-release updates"23:31
GI_Jackpost release updates23:31
GI_Jackbut either should work23:31
=== james is now known as Guest94962
GI_Jackalso go into firefox23:32
L3topwait jordan... what do you mean you tried that?23:32
GI_Jackand then go to tools-> addons23:32
GI_Jackthe click on plugins23:32
GI_Jackand tell me what ver of flash you have23:32
jordan_L3top, Installed the nvidia current from sudo apt-get23:32
jordan_GI_Jack, I use chrome o.O23:33
L3topjordan_: dpkg-query -l nvidia* | grep ^ii23:33
jordan_L3top, want me to pastebin results?23:34
L3topor just give me a relative idea.23:34
=== nick_ is now known as Guest58940
doofywhat are these mac specific iso's for? i see them on some torrent lists23:34
GI_Jackjordan: on the command line type dpkg -l |grep flash23:34
L3topthe fact that it is returning results meaans you are most likely on the proprietary driver already23:34
jordan_GI_Jack, "  "23:34
philWould you guys run 64-bit ubuntu with only 2.5 gigs of RAM?23:35
GI_Jackjordan_ - what is the package named?23:35
jordan_L3top, "302.17-0ubuntu1~precise~xup1"23:35
jordan_GI_Jack, flashplugin-installer23:35
L3topyou have added a ppa or downloaded that from nvidia yourself then. THat isnt in the repos23:35
jordan_L3top, I don't remember, i've been trying a lot of random stuff trying to get this workin good o.O23:36
L3topjordan_: then yes... please pastebin the output of the earlier command23:36
jordan_Is there any way in virtualbox to add more than 128mb to video memory? I have a 2gb video card.,23:36

cihhanIm having some problems with the installation of Ubuntu 12.04 Server. When it comes to the "partition disks", I only see (1) Configure iSCSI, (2) a completely blank line, (3) Undo, (4) Finish -- (2) should normally have guided partitioning... Any ideas?23:37
escottcihhan, how are your disks attached23:38
L3topok jordan_ you have added x-swat or xorg edgers PPA to install that. Do not do any more with regard to this driver, unless it is to downgrade. The performance lag in vbox is not likely at all related to this. ls /etc/apt/sources.list.d    will tell you which ppa you used23:39
cihhanescott: good question, the problem is it is blade server23:39
nick7hi! I'm trying to setup a git server and was wondering if there was a strong reason to use ubuntu server vs desktop23:39
nick7(and 64 vs 32 bit)23:39
jordan_L3top, http://pastebin.com/fD4zDeBM23:40
L3topYour vbox settings are going to be the problem. Please open vbox, go to settings/system/processors and tell me how many you have enabled.23:40
=== michael is now known as Guest95580
jordan_L3top, I enabled 2, but I feel like the video is the problem. Cause it'll own let me dedicate 128mb of video memory.23:41
L3topjordan_: I am pretty sure this is not the case. Please drop it to 1 GPU, go to the accelleration tab next to it, uncheck the hwvirtualization vt setting, close and launch again.23:42
jordan_L3top, Alright I'll try that now23:42
L3topjordan_: See if you do not notice a dramatic improvement23:42
cihhanescott: any recommendation? i checked it with redhat and gparted live and they are able to see.23:43
L3topThis is almost always tied to poorly interactive hw virtualization.23:43
escottcihhan, that still doesnt answer the question. how is the storage attached?23:43
cihhanescott: what do you mean by how they are attached?23:43
jordan_L3top, slow as balllllls now23:44
escottcihhan, ATA, SCSI, SATA, iSCSI, carrier pigeon23:44
L3top... well easily enough undone jordan_...23:44
cihhanI should check but most probably they are SATA23:44
jordan_L3top, I know, just saying23:44
cihhanescott: can i check it from an installed ubuntu?23:45
escottcihhan, yeah23:45
cihhanescott: how?23:45
* L3top runs win like a rocket on crap laptop HW in vbox.23:45
escottcihhan, figure out what the devices are, and then go from there23:46
escottnick7, server will setup a headless system. desktop will install the gui23:47
L3topescott: in system/motherboard/extended features, what do you have checked?23:48
jordan_L3top, I'm going to restart now that those other video drivers installed. I'll let you know how it works now.23:48
daviddoriaafter I add-apt-repository a ppa, do I have to do anything to enable it? I added this ppa https://launchpad.net/~arand/+archive/ppa , then I tried 'apt-get install glc, but it says "unable to locate package glc"23:48
cihhanescott: OK, let me check23:48
L3topjordan: in system/motherboard/extended features, what do you have checked?23:48
na-utusandaviddoria: you need to do apt-get update first23:49
L3topjordan_: you have the LATEST BLEEDING EDGE video driver avail. Why are you installing video drivers? I said DO NOT do that.23:49
jordan_L3top, IO AVIC is checked and so is Hardware clock in UTC time.23:50
jordan_L3top, EFI and pointing device are disabled23:50
L3topjordan_: all you are going to do is create a conflict situation... or downgrade yourself.  one sec on other settings.23:50
silverghosthello all i want to make ubuntu look like windows 823:51
silverghosthow to customize it23:51
silverghosti even cannot change the icons in ubuntu23:52
L3topjordan_: IOAPCI is not likely useful and can cause conflicts. You have also probably tried to enable 3d accel in video... you have just tweaked this thing into sluggishness. On your hw this should run brilliantly.23:52
silverghosthow to change the themes23:52
jordan_L3top, I know, it worked amazing on windows.23:52
jordan_L3top, I've disabled ioapci and 3d video accel, i'll see how that goes23:53
jordan_very slow23:53
daviddoriana-utusan, cool, thanks23:53
L3topjordan_: I would try and follow a guide. Unfortunately a lot of these things once a thing is selected, other things get checked by default, and unselecting them does not fix the dependency checks, which are often at the root of the problem.23:54
nick7escott: does the gui introduce a lot of overhead?23:54
escottnick7, yes and no23:55
nick7escott: ?23:55
cihhanescott: i just checked and yeah they are sata23:55
jordan_L3top, yeah i'll have to try. it's been so long since i've used linux and just built this pc all state of the art and just not very pleased with the performance so far :/23:56
L3topOne thing to keep in mind with linux... it is usually a little behind the curve... the latest and greatest typically means unsupported pieces as nobody has had opportunity to get their hands on it and write for/test.23:57
