Guest70788ya , so then these disk recover programs only search the HDD for the footer and headers and if they can make since of some reconginized pattern they may beable to recover it.00:00
guest-IUgf7II just rebooted. Now I cannot log in under my account. I don't get a bad password, it just tries to boot and fails. I think xorg is corrupted. Help?00:00
c3f59doesn't it offer that to you on boot?00:00
Guest70788How can you make since enough to recover a jpg or other file without the header and footer ghost00:00
escottlanc3r, it probably doesn't help the installers when you do weird things prior to starting00:00
lanc3rlike maybe copy everything to my HDD thats on my flashdrive?00:01
guest-IUgf7Invm, I'm getting constant authentication failures while trying to gain root access in the guest account. >.>00:01
Ghosthunter007its called computer forensics I do it all the time00:01
Guest70788dd can copy any sectors you want but the headers and footers is the only way I can think of that a program can recongize it enough to recover it00:01
wawoweGuest70788: if there were no header or footer, an that was the only missing thing then you would add them00:01
israelguest-IUgf7I, sudo aptitude reinstall xorg00:01
c3f59lanc3r, that wouldn't really do it. that would only put a live install on your disk00:01
Ghosthunter007one sec I will get you a program that will recover it00:01
c3f59you don't really want that. usually, live disks offer you to install the system on your disk00:02
lanc3rwell its persistant, and i dont want to start all from scratch00:02
guest-IUgf7Iisrael, I keep getting authentication failures. :/00:02
Guest70788wawowe but how would a program know when to add them ?00:02
wawoweGuest70788: it wouldn't00:02
c3f59well if you want, you can always dd it to your disk00:02
guest-IUgf7Iand I have dual screens now00:02
Guest70788or when the data is completely nonsense00:02
kriskropdGuest70788 i dont know what im talking about, but photorec worked for me in the past00:02
Need2Growno i said that to get an idea of the teachers style00:02
Ghosthunter007ok you can download helix2009 boot to it then run FTK it will mount your drive and recover everything you want00:03
Need2Growis he good..will he/she be conducive to my learning style00:03
israelguest-IUgf7I, are you typing right, did you edit sudoers or passwd00:03
c3f59that would be something like: dd if=/dev/sd# of=/dev/hd#00:03
wawoweGuest70788: you'd have to match the data to another pure file, then manually add the missing parts00:03
guest-IUgf7Iisrael, I am. It will not let me even run the sudo command in the guest account, so I was trying 'su' and typing the password. And no, I have not edited either of those files.00:03
Guest70788well photorec works for alot of my stuff but I intentionally deleted the headers and footer stuff and tried photrec didn't work to recover ?00:03
lanc3rwell its persistant, and i dont want to start all from scratch, is there anyway to install linux to my hardrive without looseing all my programs00:04
wawoweGuest70788: at the least know where the file ends and begins00:04
c3f59lanc3r dd oughta work but i don't know how to resize your partition afterwards.00:04
israelguest-IUgf7I, try ssh from other pc to use an admin user00:04
lanc3rwhat is dd?00:04
Guest70788I just know it is on a particular partition that is about 1TB in sizes00:04
guest-IUgf7Iisrael, I just installed ubuntu today, I don't have ssh setup.00:05
OerHeksyou cannot use sudo in guest.00:05
c3f59dd clones partitions or entire disks to whatever you want (another disk or maybe an image file)00:05
Jordan_Ulanc3r: You will probably save yourself more time by just doing a normal install, using automatic partitioning, then configuring everything how you want it afterward. Trying to setup parititons manually, and automatically transition your modifications over, is just going to waste time.00:06
kriskropdguest-IUgf7I can't you login through a different runlevel? (function keys 1-5)00:06
lanc3rbut i have like 2 Gib of programs and settings i dont want to lose00:06
Guest70788with no footer or header /patterns so then how is it even possible to recover other then manually looking at every sector combination and adding header and footer info in this cases the number of possiblities to try would exceed the known universes life time00:07
guest-IUgf7Ikriskropd, ehh what lol? I set the primary account to log in automatically, but after this reboot, that did not happen00:07
c3f59yeah i am of Jordan_U's opinion on that, but everybody's got to try it for themselves00:07
escottlanc3r, then dont reinstall00:07
guest-IUgf7Iupon typing my password into the account, the screen turns black and brings me back to the login screen00:07
wawoweGuest70788: it's not00:07
escottlanc3r, and if you must reinstall look at things like etc-keeper and !clone00:07
kriskropdguest-IUgf7I i meantt o fix this... w.e issue it is you are working for, you said you cant login to run sudo or something because of xorg, can you login to a shell and fix it that way at all?00:08
lanc3rif i use dd, couuld i resize the partion without formating what i just copyed?00:08
daniel110hi so i just installed ubuntu for the first time on my hp laptop and i am having a problem. Basically everytime i close the lid(it goes to suspend) and reopen, the wifi stops working. I mean i see the bar trying to connect but it asks me to enter a password and then stops working. What should i do?00:08
Guest70788wait I think I got it if I write a header and footer at the begining and end of the partition in theory the image would appear as a sub image :) I think?00:08
guest-IUgf7Ikriskropd: I only checked and alterned a few settings in nvidia's setting program and hit 'save'. That's it. :/00:08
c3f59well, i tryed dd many times for different reasons, but i never succeeded in resizing the partition to the new disk00:09
guest-IUgf7IAfter that, I rebooted and could not log into my account.00:09
wawoweGuest70788: what's your plan?00:09
lanc3rif i use dd, couuld i resize the partion without formating what i just copyed?00:09
kriskropdguest-IUgf7I you are logging in, the problem is your display cannot initialize the x-server, which I believe is why someone suggested 'sudo aptititude reinstall xorg' earlier00:09
daniel110i tried everything i found online and still doesn't work00:10

kriskropdc3f59 two different package managers00:15

wawowereuf: don't really have any suggestions other that search engines00:17
reufwawowe, thanks anyways00:18
reufthe thing i get confused is how do all these managers organize their installations etc - in sense do all of them follow same logic where to put what file?00:19
wawowereuf: apt aptitude synatptic etc use dpkg00:19
wawowereuf: dpkg is the base00:20
reufalso the directory structure of different linux - it seems that each distro has their own way of organizing files, why so much mess?00:20
wawowereuf: different package managers00:21

escottdanes, you want a key combination to change your input mode?01:55
danesescott,. yes01:56
Zyclopshi, does anyone know any good books on linux/ubuntu server security?01:56
escottdanes, go to keyboard layout in settings, then under layouts click on options there you will find Key(s) to change layout01:59
escottdanes, i think that is what you want01:59
danesescott, excellent, thank you!02:01

escottdanes, if you dont need the full languages switching but just need a few characters here and there you might find the compose key useful, but if you are already literate in multiple layouts thats well impressive02:02

escott[Steven_M], you can install grub-efi if you have an efi system. if you are using bios+gpt make a "grub_bios" partition (1Mb is sufficient) see rodsbooks.com02:27

escottmin|dvir|us, good i was about to say. putting usb sticks into shredders is a bad idea. it can damage the metal blades. explosives are a much better idea02:31
min|dvir|usescott, haha!02:31
forbidden404gandalfcome, UEFI is something like BIOS, I don't think you can "normally" install without using it02:32
escottgandalfcome, you can see if your UEFI has a bios mode02:32
pals0007does anyone see my post blink twice for yes02:32
escottpals0007, to be brutally honest thats not a question we like to answer much on this channel. its usually a sign you are doing things wrong (like downloading drivers when you should be using jockey)02:33
min|dvir|usclausen, unless the USB stick has special hardware instructions, I think constantly overwriting is what you're stuck with.02:33
gandalfcomeescott: I can switch my bios to legacy mode and boot with MBR, but 12.04 installs itself with uefi built-in.02:33
clausenmin|dvir|us, ok, thanks02:33
escottgandalfcome, so where do things go wrong?02:33
min|dvir|usclausen, I think it was obvious that was an opinion.02:34
clausenmin|dvir|us, I think I have a slightly better option... encrypting each file, and wiping keys02:34
pals0007tried compiling the drivers as listed on the ubuntu website but the drives on the rosewell dont show up after reboot till i do the command sudo modprobe rr62x02:35
clausen(but that is a pain too)02:35
min|dvir|usclausen, well, that's out-of-band.02:35
min|dvir|usUnless your only storage is the USB stick, at which point the cleartext would be unshreddable.02:35
clausenmin|dvir|us, well, the keys would still be on the USB...02:35
josvukfixing my sudoers I have to boot into recovery, but I don't use grub it's lilo does holding the shift key works anyway?02:35
clausen... but you need to recover lots of the key to read the files02:36
escottpals0007, add it to /etc/modules02:36
gandalfcomeescott: switching my MB into UEFI mode (not AUTO) it says no boot device found. This is after successful install from the livecd onto the ssd (I mounted it later and checked that files are on there!)02:36
min|dvir|usclausen, are you making a self-destructing Flash drive?02:36
escottgandalfcome, i would boot the livecd, chroot in and install grub-efi02:36

escottgandalfcome, i've managed to avoid these efi systems so far so im not cognizant in what needs to be done. sounds like grub-efi is installed. not sure why you are getting the no boot device. can you tell what is giving you the no boot device? uefi?02:38

genii-aroundizumu: Do you have some question regarding your Ubuntu?02:49
gandalfcomeescott: I should mention that I followed an ubuntu online guid that suggested formatting things into gpt. that's what I did.02:49
escottgandalfcome, sure it does. its just normal grub. you would install grub to the mbr and boot it that way. if you have a gpt disk you need to create a grub_bios partition (as small as 1MB is plenty)02:49
izumuI don't know how to use scheme very much, who can help me?02:50
gandalfcomeescott: guess what I have a 100mb uefi partition, that seems useless as of now. will that do for the grub_bios parition?02:50
escottgandalfcome, gpt is required by uefi. bios+grub can boot gpt the only difficulty is the grub stage2 which is normally placed between the mbr and the first partition. there isn't always space with gpt for that02:50

GwenniferKay, how do I uninstall 12.04?02:55
cipher__anyone here still sentimental over gnome2? back when the UI was sane?02:55
escottgandalfcome, you shouldnt need to redo the entire install. i would just resize the gpt partition (the 100MB one) and free 1MB and make that into a grub_bios partition, but keep it gpt. then chroot in. remove grub-efi and install grub, then run grub-install and see if that boots02:56

cipher__would it be a crime to suggest we share desktops, i need to sprucen things up -- aesthetics inquiries are just as valid, as any other.03:13
escottgandalfcome, presuming that what is now labled BIOS Boot Partition was the EFI partition then grub-bios should be ok. although having it as fat is wrong. a grub_bios partition is not supposed to have a filesystem03:13
escottgandalfcome, bios grub on a gpt disk requires ~1MB of partitioned, but unformatted space with a label of grub_bios03:13
escottgandalfcome, i dont know if label is the right term... but its in the options for gpt format stuff03:14

escottgandalfcome, you can't avoid uefi unless the uefi has a bios emulation mode03:16
john38anybody know?03:17
jrdnnjohn38: If you have Totem-xine click open location and browse to where VIDEO_TS is.03:17
john38jrdnn, ok03:18
zykotick9john38: you do mean "Movie Player" (aka Totem) right?  i'd have no idea in that case... in my personal experience vlc is better then totem, and mplayer is more powerful then vlc03:18
gandalfcomeescott: the system setting software (I called that bios; accessible by F1) does have a legacy mode. I have switched it to said legacy mode now (after trying UEFI to no avail). BTW thanks for your help!!! I think I can at least learn more about the system that way.03:18
john38zykotick9, ok03:18
escottgandalfcome, legacy mode means bios emulation mode. so instead of uefi looking for a efi partition on a gpt disk it just executes the code in the mbr. so in that mode installing the normal grub should work03:19
BronzeEagleescott: it won't let hardly do anything from the live disk03:20
escottBronzeEagle, i dont even know what your original question was anymore03:20
gandalfcomeescott: If you're willing  I can easily offer ssh access as there's nothing on the computer. That would be great help and it might be easier for you to have a look.03:20
arusselI've installed postgresql on 12.04 'sudo aptitude install postgresql-server-dev-9.1 postgresql-contrib-9.1  postgresql-client-9.1 postgresql postgresql-common'.03:21
escottgandalfcome, i dont even know what to look for03:21
arusselbut I haven't a /etc/postgres directory. Has anything change since last release ?03:21
arusselI've got no error but /etc/init.d/postgres status/start is not giving any output03:22
zykotick9arussel: has it been ported to upstart?  check /etc/init/ for some postgres thing?  (ps. i don't know)03:23
zykotick9arussel: fyi you should consider /etc/init.d/ as basically deprecated in ubuntu03:23
john38jrdnn, xine doesnt have open folder feature03:24
zykotick9john38: (personal opinion only) i've never had much sucess with xine03:24
john38jrdnn, i know how to open and play files i want to play the whole movie folder03:24
arusselzykotick9: thanks for the info. But I'm not sure this is the source of my problem03:25
djbpython1so yea, vi is all screwed up for me, delete, backspace and arrow keys are not working03:26
arusselbtw I'm on a 'just installed' ec2 ami latest 12.04 from ubuntu download03:26
escottgandalfcome, goodluck. sorry im not of much help03:26
jrdnnjohn38: Open a terminal, cd to the directory with the movies, and find . -iname \*.mp4 -print0 | xargs --null totem --enqueue (replace .mp4 with whatever the movie extension is)03:26
zykotick9john38: with mplayer you can use something like "mplayer -dvd-device /home/USER/foo dvd://1" (untested)03:27
john38jrdnn, ok i got it to work with Vlc03:27
zykotick9john38: with mplayer you can use something like "mplayer -dvd-device /home/USER/foo/ dvd://1" (untested) [sorry the trailing / "might" be important]03:27

dj_segfault|Long|: It;s more likely that you set up the tasks incorrectly than crontab is broken.  The most common mistake is forgetting that when Crontab runs, especially as root, it does not have your shell environment, including the path.  What I would do is add a task to run that doesn't depend on anything.  For instance, "/bin/date > /tmp/crontest".04:45

ubottuDO NOT RUN THAT COMMAND! That particular command is DANGEROUS and shouldn't be uttered here. REST OF YOU: DANGER, WILL ROBINSON, DANGER! Do not use the command or utter it here thank you!04:49

xiambaxWhats one of the best ultra books for ubuntu support?04:52
L3topMany many many are. In the past this has resulted in newbs destroying their stuff Ghosthunter007. It should not be put here, even in jest.04:52
saculI hate the term ultrabooks04:52
dj_segfault|Long|: I would try the test I mentioned before with the date command.  But 90% of the time it's because the script you're trying to run depends on something being in the path that's not or some environment variable being set.  If I were you I would also redirect stdout and stderr of those jobs to files you can go look at later.04:52
Chad__|Long|: Um....the link isn't working. Use http://pastebin.ubuntu.com/04:52
xiambaxTerm or no term, You know what I mean04:52

jagginessL3top, in a way it's wrong because flash comes with chrome, so i'll just switch to using chrome if i cant get the latest flash plugin for firefox05:23

qubitscan i show you what was removed ikonia08:11
fidelqubits: in case you tend to forget such things - consider using some kind of notes next time ;)08:11
ikoniasomeone else maybe willing to help you though08:11
qubitsI just have worse memory issues than most people08:11
qubitsikonia: just check it out, it should be obvious what was used08:11
ikoniaqubits: no08:12
qubitsikonia: try to be a little more intuitive than the rest of these blokes around here who are so self absorbed theyre unwilling to help or learn something new once in a while08:12
qubitsbe better than that, its dmraid, lets move on08:12

delhiveryHi, why is there no ppa for https://launchpad.net/~michael-gruz/+archive/canon/ on precise? [ Is there I can add ppa for oneric or quantal to a 12.04 install instead? ]08:14
ikoniaqubits: security has nothing to do with what you are saying08:14
qubitsthen i've nothing to worry about08:14
qubitsbe as intrusive as you like08:14
ikoniaqubits: sorry, I thought you where asking about recovering a raid array, I have no idea why you are referencing security08:15
DJonesdelhivery: Presumably because the creator of the ppa hasn't built it for precise, or they decided not to bother08:15
ikoniaDeSian: probably not been created yet08:15
ikoniaoops delhivery that was for you08:15
qubitsyou referenced intrusive probing08:15
ikoniaqubits: no, you asked me to be intrusive, I said I am intrusive meaning when finding out issues to resolve a problem.08:15
ikoniaapologies if my wording confused you08:16
qubitsikonia: your reading confused us both, I didn't use that word, go re-read the message08:16
ikoniasorry, you said intuitive,08:16
ikoniaI miss-read08:16
delhiveryDJones, possible to include ppa for older / upcoming version to 12.04 instead then?08:16
qubitsCan you help me now that we know that it's dmraid please08:16
ikoniaqubits: no08:16
qubitsThis isn't going to be easy to get help with, why give up now08:17
ikoniaqubits: I've explained why.08:17
qubitsI'm certain now08:17
qubitsno question08:17
DJonesczajkowski: delhivery Its not recommended to install something designed for an older version, it could conflict/cause problems08:17
ikoniaqubits: I'm doing other things now08:17
delhiveryDJones, and yet?08:17
DJonesdelhivery: I wouldn't like to say, its not something I'd take a risk on08:18
delhiveryDJones, or if I could upgrade to quantal as a crazy alpha now08:18
delhiveryDJones, its an experiemental installation.. I think I can risk breaking one system out of hunder08:18
DJonesdelhivery: If you're prepared to take the risk, give it a try08:19
delhiveryDJones, right... so how do I go about adding it?08:19
AdvoWorkif i have 2 folders on 2 different ubuntu machines, is there a way I can compare the contents within them? ie theres 10000's of files in there, all .jpegs for example, i need to see if they match?08:22
DJonesdelhivery: There should be instructions on how to add the ppa on the launchpad site08:23
fidelAdvoWork: in case you want to sync them ..rsync might be an option08:24
c3lAdvoWork: one idea would be to use rsync and "pretending" (-n swich, means do not actually do anything) to copy one of the folders to the other. rsync checks for changes before syncing, and if diffs are found you can print out with the verbose swich08:26
c3lalso, this is a rather nice script http://www.sanitarium.net/unix_stuff/Kevin%27s%20Rsync%20Backups/diff_backup.pl.txt08:27
AdvoWorkfidel, basically i'm mounting a folder to another location on a shared server so just want to make sure they contain all files08:27
fidelAdvoWork: see c3l's comment08:28
fidelrsync can be used to compare as well08:28
c3lAdvoWork: but if you are new to rsync and dont want to bother with it, you can have a look at the script I linked.08:29
fidelAdvoWork: using 'diff' in cli might work as well08:30
c3looh, diff can compare directories with the -r swich!08:32
c3lI think that is the easiest way for you AdvoWork08:33
fidelAdvoWork: let us know what method you have choosen at the end ;)08:34
AdvoWorkc3l, fidel cheers for the advice/scripts etc, i will try them shortly08:37
delhivery_DJones, there are no instructions on adding a ppa for an older ubuntu release to a newer release08:39
fideldelhivery_: using i.e. 10.04 ppa on 12.04 is not a thing you should do anyways (ignome me if i misinterpreted you)08:41
delhivery_fidel, what if I insist?08:41
delhivery_fidel, i know it will break things, but I really want to use the ppa08:42
fidelhappy testing/debugging08:42
fidelthen give it a try - but dont expect big support inhere afterwards ;)08:42
ikoniaa brave stance08:42
delhivery_I'd be testing happily if I could figure out a way to do this in the first place08:42
delhivery_ikonia, I'm running a couple of lfs and gentoo systems, I think I'd be sane enough if i could figure out how to do what I want to do08:43
=== mrmist is now known as groupcat
ikoniadelhivery_: I'm not sure how gentoo or LFS has any relevance to managing the stability of a PPA on an ubuntu system08:43
delhivery_ikonia, i.e. if everything breaks.. I can resort to going back to resorting to source based installs08:44
delhivery_I dont care about the stability of the ppa, i just want to be able to use it as an experiment08:44
_farmer_Hello, I am trying to install a .deb package on ubuntu 12.04. First of all i had problems with "Version number does not start with digit" which i resolved by downgrading the dpkg version to After this when i issue the dpkg -i command after some while I get an error saying: corrupted filesystem tarfile - corrupted package archive, dpkg-deb: subprocess paste killed by signal (Broken pipe).08:47
ubottuThe official ubuntu support channel is #ubuntu. Also see http://ubuntu.com/support and http://ubuntuforums.org and http://askubuntu.com08:47

Muellisienile: fair enough. Solving Chromium issues doesn't attract me though. If it was about firefox, I might have loaded 2GB of a web browser into my memory and researched...10:23
narayanaDarkened: do gedit /home/dark/Shell &10:24
sienile:P getting it to work in Firefox is easy, just pick it from the app list... Chromium makes you have all your settings perfect for it to work10:25
Darkenednarayana, it replys with [1] 3043 then opens the Shell file in text editor10:26

ndxtgwhat is the difference between gdm and fluxbox? I'm about to install fluxbox on Ubuntu Server for lightest GUI, but seems like I must install gdm too?10:49
Genesisnarayana, please ?10:49
fidelndxtg: gdm is a login manager - fluxbox isnt afaik10:49
Genesisnarayana, sorry im kinda noob to ubuntu10:49
narayanaGenesis: google "ubuntu server scsi drivers" - some have the same problem with ubuntu not detecting it10:50
fidelfluxbox is a pretty old looking but most likely light desktop environment (not sure if that termi is 100% correct)10:50
narayanaGenesis: try this driver if its listed http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20100702173336AAgLku810:50
ndxtgfidel: thanks, so I must install both in order to make fluxbox works, is that correct?10:50
fidel_farmer_: but poco-lib packages exists - so you mentioned the wrong package name most likely in the first place10:51
_farmer_that is the trick10:51
_farmer_i try to write apt-get install libpoconetssl910:51
_farmer_as specified here10:51
fidelsearch for libpoco*10:51
fidelat least i think so10:51
_farmer_and i just get back an error10:51
_farmer_there is no10:51
narayanaGenesis: try live booting into some other distro if its possible. It might help pinpoint the issue10:52
MonkeyDust!find poco10:52
ubottuFound: libpoco-dev, libpoco-doc, libpococrypto9, libpococrypto9-dbg, libpocodata9, libpocodata9-dbg, libpocofoundation9, libpocofoundation9-dbg, libpocomysql9, libpocomysql9-dbg (and 14 others) http://packages.ubuntu.com/search?keywords=poco&searchon=names&suite=precise&section=all10:52

Fudgehi having trouble mounting a ufs2 memstick, any tips?10:53
MonkeyDust_farmer_  yes, if the package name is typed correctly10:53
fidel_farmer_: if a package is listed on the ubuntu website for your distri as available - you can for sure install it on that specific distri-version10:53
Genesisnarayana, i have a live cd. i  can boot it .10:53
_farmer_it is fuckin typed correctly, i copy pasted it :D10:53
Genesisnarayana, i can try whatever you tell me to do xD10:54
Macreadytype sudo in front10:54
_farmer_but it simply spits out "has no installation candidate"10:54
chu_farmer_, Please watch your language in this channel, thank you.10:54
_farmer_chu: np10:54
_farmer_chu: but i got advised to watch out the name of the package five times10:54
fidel_farmer_: are you used to apt?10:54
_farmer_but it worked fine till now10:55
fidelthen that is error 1 - dont try to use a package manangent if you dont understand at least the basics of it10:55
ok_dude just $apt-cache search ^searchTerm if ur unsure10:55
fidel_farmer_: a good approach is to check if your sources is up to date - then maybe checking what version of desired package is available in your defined sources (using the policy option) and then install that desired package10:56
Genesisnarayana, tried searching on google nothing pops out :(10:56
fidelapt isnt that hard and it makes sense to spend some minutes trying to udnerstand it10:56
ok_what fidel said - big time10:57
_farmer_ok, i will do that10:57
fidelotherwise you'll come back here repeatly and ask question s most inhere will not even understand in the first moment ;)10:57
_farmer_i just thought there is someone with a similiar problem who could give me a quick fix10:57
blarf_hi, if i want to use the open ati and nvidia driver with 3d support, do i need to do anything, like install something or change some config?10:57
_farmer_thank for the help10:57
narayanaGenesis: look for others with the same problems, and their fixes. Might not be for the same version of ubuntu server10:57
fidel_farmer_: understanding > tips from random strangers10:58
fidelthose tips in irc might even be wrong or dangerous - so be careful with tips you dont udnerstand at least partly10:58
_farmer_yes, true, but now i dont have the time to understand, i just need to test something out quickly10:58
LjL_farmer_: it's possible you don't have Universe (the repository where the package is) enabled for some reason. anyway, i'd start with "apt-cache policy libpoconetssl9"10:58
Genesisnarayana, i tried on google with my version of LSI and still nothing it looks like no one usues it anymore :(10:58
_farmer_so i wanted to save time10:58
Genesisnarayana, but i have a live cd10:59
ok_farmer: you can do ten min reading and fix ur issues when they arise or post somewhere eveytime and waste far more than ten mins waiting for an answer10:59
fidel_farmer_: using a debian based distri foces you basically to understand the apt-basics10:59
fidelif you want ever save time ;)10:59
_farmer_ok, the apt-cache returns all nones10:59
LjL_farmer_: pastebin your /etc/apt/sources.list file please11:00
_farmer_and yes you are right with the advices :)11:00
ok_then it isn't available from ur list of sources11:00
narayanaGenesis: try the live cd then11:01
LjLfidel, ok_: maybe you should cut them some slack. after all the command they used *should* work, it works on my install, and if Universe is not enabled or whatever else is the problem, well, it *ought to* be enabled by default11:01
_farmer_LjL:  http://pastebin.com/FdyyDPZi11:01
_farmer_the universe multiverse line is hashed, is that what you mean?11:01
ikoniaLjL: is universe supposed to be enabled by default ?11:01
fidelLjL: ?11:01
Genesisnarayana, and then? i still dont know what to do xD11:01
Tm_Tikonia: AFAIK it is11:02
fidelLjL: i was just trying to point out in general that it might be dangerous to execute commands a user does not understand ;)11:02
LjLikonia: yes, since a few releases11:02
blarf_hi, if i want to use the open ati and nvidia driver with 3d support, do i need to do anything, like install something or change some config?11:02
fidelthat was a general hint - not pointing to a cmd hint in the actual context11:02
Genesisnarayana, brb 2 mins11:03
narayanaGenesis: there are two ways of dealing with your problem11:03
LjL_farmer_: uhm, did you modify your sources.list? because that doesn't look very much like a standard Ubuntu one. Universe is commented out (so it won't work), but also, there are no [commented out] entries for updating Universe11:03
ok_ljl: the user was asking specifically for a "quick fix"11:03
narayanaGenesis: 1: manually installing your drivers11:03
_farmer_LjL: no, i did not modify, this is the form in which i got it11:03
narayanaGenesis: or 2: installing a server that detects the drivers themselves11:04
_farmer_LjL: shall i uncomment the first line in the sources.list?11:04
LjL_farmer_: yes, but you should probably also add a couple other lines. moment11:04

narayanaGenesis: for 1: google for appropriate scsi drivers, and if you do find them try ones that might seem appropriate11:07
LjL_farmer_: still keep in mind that, for some reason, you don't have the "source" repositories in that list, and i didn't add them either. so if you ever try to fetch a source package, that won't work11:07

But when i want to install the .deb it whines that it depends on libv8-2.0.3 (>= 2.0.3). However i have libv8- installed which should be higher than 2.0.3 what means it should be ok.

=== Rez is now known as LoRez
nyuszika7hI'm not sure does that reduce the boot time though; the splash screen should normally only be present until the desktop is ready.11:32
LjL_farmer_: that's not the way it works. a package has a "name" and a "version". in that case, the package *name* is "libv8-2.0.3" (it includes the version in the name) so it won't be recognized as simply a different version of the same package.11:32
xmint9hmmm, ok i'm sorry LjL ..11:32
_farmer_LjL: the ... :D, aaaah so, if libv8-2.0.3 is available only for lucid, does that mean i am done for?11:34

SmashLinkhey guys, does somebody know about any PTPd tutorial/manual?11:34

livingdaylightc3f59, don't know why ubuntu wouldn't have the latest version, but, I know sometimes they don't for whatever reason, which is why I'm asking/confirming, because I also know its usually best to get official and tested from software repos11:59

bonnohello anyone knows the diference between "hibernate" and "suspend"  / when i hibernate i get a grub menu each time i start the computer..which means than i can boot from another OS (i have dual boot)12:00
GenesisI tried installing ubuntu server on my IBM eServer xSeries 365 with 2 x SCSI Hot-swap disks. And the installer stops on the discovering disk part.And prints me the list of available drivers. I tried searching on google and there's no one that has the similar problem to me.Althoguh i have a live cd so i can acces the terminal.If this is hardware issue like those drives deosnt work how can i check it? What should i do?12:01
a5m0bonno, suspend usually keeps stuff in memory, hibernate dumps everything to disc12:01
LjLbonno: "suspend" suspends to RAM, needs motherboard support, and involves your motherboard giving a "trickle current" to your RAM to keep the data in it. "hibernate" moves everything to the HDD and shuts the computer off12:01
a5m0Genesis, get the correct driver and load it12:01
Genesisa4m0, how do i know what driver is correct?12:02
{g}fidel: well, answered.. i have some options to try: apt-get install kubuntu-desktop, try to get debian testing running, try mint.12:02
bonnoso if i hibernate i can shut my computer off without losing data?12:02
Genesisa5m0, how do i know what driver is correct?12:02
fidel{g}: i was asking regarding the 'how to get something else then unity" question12:02
LjLbonno: you should always save your data first, suspend and hibernate are not entirely foolproof12:02
fideland i assume you got the answer - so have fun testing gnome3, xfce etc12:03
bonnoi mean after hibernation can i press the UPS button ....oh ok.. :) thanks12:03
LjLbonno: yes you can12:03
bonnoin windows the equivalent option is actually suspend or hibernation? (last question)12:04
a5m0Genesis, find out the controller model and search the oem site or google12:04
LjLbonno: in Windows, i believe "suspend" is called "Standby", and "hibernate" is called, uh, either "Suspend" or "Hibernate", don't remember12:04

a5m0Genesis, have you configured your raid partition?12:16
Genesisa5m0, how do i do that?12:18

CompyAre the 12.04 us.archive.ubuntu repositories having issues today?13:55
LoTCompy: they were working earlier, why?13:55
CompyI haven't been able to connect to any of them when using apt-get, and its tried several ips in the range.13:55
leOni understand that language thing and i do appologise ... but well .. lets say i'm really getting to the point of no return on this matter13:56
MonkeyDustleOn  right click on the pdf, properties, open with, show other13:56
leOni have done that13:56
leOnit shows a list of "family-friendly, polite, and professional" applications13:57
CompyLoT: Looks like it was just running slow. It nailed it this go-round. Thanks for the prompt response!13:57
leOnbut NOT the application that i want to choose13:57
leOnit doesn't have a "Browse" button so that i can choose whatever application i want13:57
leOnit's limiting my choices13:58

winchatfor what like are you talking about a proxy then yes18:23
winchatgo to preferences18:23
john__1sorry but im not talking about proxy i mean if a machine has multiple ips, is there a way to tell i wish to use IP A ?18:23
Jordan_Ujohn__1: I seriously doubt that the machine you're running Xchat on has multiple public ip addresses.18:24
john__1sorry i was just curious18:26
centoooshi, i need a software to building swf files at linux. aly idea?18:26
john__1to know if its possible for exemple18:26
Jordan_Ujohn__1: Your question doesn't really make any practical sense.18:27
zatanooHey after upgrade unity launcher dissapear , i have tried unity reset, compiz reset and it didnt help? Is there anything else i can try?18:27
thirdendercentooos: what are you making SWF files for? (lol, be specific, don't just say "webpage") what's your reason?18:27
Jordan_Ujohn__1: So I guess the answer is "no".18:27
bekksjohn__1: Technically, it is possible. But having numerous RFC regarding TCP/IP and the weight of routes it is irrelevant by default when the TCPIP stack is implemented according to those RFC on the host OS.18:28
centooosthirdender, i make swf file to advertise. i make CDs and sell ppl :). i before use adobe flash pro at win!18:29
john__1i see, for exemple is basic little software like eggies bot, you can in the config specify witch ip to use for machine who run multiple ip, i was just curious to know if xchat is able to do the same18:30
Picijohn__1: You might want to try asking in #xchat if you can't get an answer here.18:31
john__1ok thanks18:31

usr13__josvuk: You would never login to it even if it did.  Would you?21:52
josvukfor fixing things went wrong :-)21:52
gsruser13__: one reason I can think of is extra security - even if you logged in as "root", you would not have super admin privledges, and if you cant see shadow, you couldnt guess the root username.21:52
tcstarwhat's wrong with running sudo in the command line?  Ubuntu disabled root login for a REASON21:52
usr13__!sudo |  josvuk21:52
ubottujosvuk: sudo is a command to run command-line programs with superuser privileges ("root") (also see !cli). Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo for more information. For graphical applications see !gksu (GNOME, Xfce), or !kdesudo (KDE). If you're unable to execute commands with sudo see: http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/fixsudo21:52

jordan_I have 2 monitors, how can I send a program to the second monitor besides dragging it over?21:56

tcstarjordan_: I haven't found a way thus far...21:59
usr13__josvuk: see my PM21:59
tcstarThere is no reason to EVER su or login as root....  Like someone else said, if you want to login as root you may as well be running windows...  And if you wanted to be running a security infested machine, you'd already be running windows not linux22:00
josvukusr13__: I'm perparing for answering ...22:01
beandogThat's an exaggeration.22:01
beandogbut whatever.22:01
swtcstar: everything has a reason22:01
usr13__tcstar: Well, it's ok to use sudo or su   Just not setting a password for root.22:01
tcstarusr13__:  never said it wasn't okay to use sudo...  su root generally requires you to set a root password since (at least in 12.04) it has a default password that needs to be changed in order to su into it..22:02
gsrusr13__: yes, I've read some of that philosophy - I'm still miffed as to why its true.  With sudo you are effectively using the "same" password for root and for your user - meaning that a "wheel" user compromise is equal to a root compromise.22:03
squaregoldfishUbuntu 12.04, gedit with LaTeX plugin. Every time I save a document, it move the cursor and selects the parent section tag. How can I stop it?22:03

beandogI thought they did for some reason.  oh well.22:08
gsrfact is, choosing a complex root password, and using 'su -', is ultimately a more secure system - Ubuntu has dumbed it down for the migrating from windows folk, making it more "idiot proof" than "secure"22:08
usr13__gsr: It's not.  But setting a password for root will not help you.  What advantage do you get?22:08
usr13__tcstar:  Can I PM you?22:08
gsrusr13__:  if your user password becomes compromised, your system as a whole doesn't22:08
beandogusr13__: actually, real security would be *disabling sudo* and changing the root password.22:08
gsrits kind of the reason root was invented in the first place, methinks22:08

repozitorwhat is the default password in ubuntu 10.10 live?23:08
acemeisterwhy should i use wubi is it worse than bootup from the cd23:08
graftacemeister: wubi installs ubuntu to a disk image (file) on your windows partition23:09
usr13__asmonaut:  is it running now?   Can you see it?   lynx -dump    #Should show you "It works"23:09
acemeisteris that th eonly way i can dual boot, thisw ay?23:09
graftacemeister: it's just less intrusive than trying to repartition your windows partition23:09
kriskropdrepozitor I don't think there should be any password, try leaving it blank23:09

meoblast001how is it that both of my machines randomly lock up and the hard drive usage goes solid until i shut the machine down23:12
mdelim guessing I need to install the drivers, but how can I do that (restricted drivers) without having the card in?23:12
meoblast001i can't move the cursor or anything23:12
faryshtakriskropd, that did the trick. Thanks.23:12
meoblast001machine grinds to a complete halt23:12

acemeisterthat sort of thing23:13
meoblast001no, it sounds like a bad Unity bug23:13
meoblast001this did not happen until i upgraded to 12.0423:13
meoblast001both machines started doing it at the same time23:13
mdelcould be the controller23:13

asmonautlynx dump localhost gives me a ¨get adobe player¨ msg, which means site works as localhost (as it does inbrowser)23:13
mdelis this a new issue?23:13
meoblast001mdel: on 2 machines? which suspicously happens at the same time i upgrade them to 12.04?23:13
usr13__asmonaut: -dump23:13
Erealz12-04 is not as stable as 10.423:13
Erealzthat simple23:13
Erealzi have constant crashes.23:14
meoblast001i've considered switching to Debian23:14
asmonautlynx -dump hangs.... still hanging... still hanging ... :P23:14
meoblast001i would have months ago if i didn't hate change so much23:14
OerHeksmeoblast001, use top or install htop to see what process is bugging you23:14
usr13__asmonaut: lynx -dump localhost  #from that machine.  lynx -dump  #Should also work, and work from other PCs in the LAN23:15
Erealzi like deb alot but it like alot of the ubuntu features so23:15
meoblast001OerHeks: problem is, when this process does its.... thing... he system becomes unusable quite quickly23:15
meoblast001so right now, i doubt top would even find the problem23:15
meoblast001but at a random moment, my hard drive light goes on full and my cursor stops moving23:15
titanthey are all the same, only different colors and windows managers :p23:15
usr13__asmonaut: service --status-all  #Should show:  [ + ]  apache223:16
OerHeksmeoblast001, top can identify what causes it, i could say random common problem is ubuntu-one trying to connect23:16
usr13__asmonaut: Does it?23:16
repozitorkriskropd: if i set the password already, yes i can,23:16
repozitorbut i didn't set pass  yet!23:16
graftacemeister: i mean what ar eyou using the ubuntu system for? just to test it out?23:16
meoblast001OerHeks: i don't use Ubuntu One, would it be running anyway?23:16
OerHeksmeoblast001, i thought it is running standard somewere23:17
kriskropdrepozitor, the live cd should just take you straight to a desktop,a ssuming you chose that over the "install" route; if it didn't try rebooting the live CD, there IS no user or pass on the ubuntu live CD for 10.10 (as the last link I posted suggested was done for security reasons)23:17
meoblast001oh, it seems so23:18
meoblast001OerHeks: is it possible to remove Ubuntu One completely?23:18
nrdbhi... I install 12.04 a few days ago... I need to type a document... LibreOffice isn't doing any spell checking !  .. :( ..  I have checked the options and it seems to be setup ok ... but no spelling errors are being found, even deliberate ones.... what is wrong?23:19
kriskropdI've setup FreeNX with Awesome on an Ubuntu Server or some minial GUI-necesary stuff, however I am having trouble with getting asian characters to display; Asian characters display a block with their charmap ID numbers, solution anyone?23:19
OerHeksmeoblast001, yes, you could remove it from startup.23:19
asmonautah i see. well, other puter is windows. in browsers give ¨taking too long -firefox¨/¨could not connect-chrome¨23:19
asmonautusr13__, yes, apache +23:20
asmonautbut well, i still duno what to write as ServerName, but im guesing my isp given static ip (router) instead of local static?23:22
OerHeksmeoblast001, `u1sdtool -q` will stop the daemon23:22
meoblast001OerHeks: i just killed ubuntuone-syncdaemon23:23
meoblast001does that do the same?23:23
OerHekswell, i hope so23:23
meoblast001okay, i hope this makes things better23:23
repozitorkriskropd:i left the both filed blank23:24
repozitorbut can't login23:24
OerHeksthis is one issue. other issue that can solve many slow ubuntu, is disable IPv6
