PlayingNakedglitsj16, i ran sudo ubuntu-tweak - yet i still cannot run "clean" Maybe i need to do soemthing different?00:00
glitsj16PlayingNaked: mix up, i thought you were still refering to bleachbit, never used ubuntu-tweak sorry00:00
ActionParsnipZiber: you could also try running:  sudo mkdir /etc/adobe; echo "OverrideGPUValidation=true" | sudo tee /etc/adobe/mms.cfg > /dev/null00:00

ubottuTo have some persistent storage when using a Live CD, follow the instructions on https://help.ubuntu.com/community/LiveCDPersistence00:01
ZiberActionParsnip: what's that do? also http://pastebin.com/0Zm2tsvJ00:01
PlayingNakedActionParsnip, familiar how i might be able to purge these old kernels in ubuntu-tweak? "Clean" is not available even launching as root00:01
ActionParsnipZiber: it does something with hardware accelleration in flash, can help00:01
ActionParsnipZiber: also run:  sudo dpkg -P flashplugin-installer00:02
SchuenemannActionParsnip, if I get internet access do I still need that persistence?00:02
ActionParsnipPlayingNaked: if you can pastebin the output of:  uname -a; dpkg -l | grep linux-image     I can give a command00:02
ActionParsnipSchuenemann: if you can get it on the system you want to install to then it's not really needed as you can just update in the live environment. If the system is a laptop you can use a wired connection and install updates etc there (makes life easier)00:03

Dr_willisdead_mike,  what kind of optical disk is it?00:30

dead_mikeDr_willis: someone else made it - it contains .wav files. The gnome popup sees it as an audio CD when I insert it.00:33
Schuenemannis there a way to see if the live usb creation went fine?00:33
Schuenemannnot talking about the ISO hash00:33
ActionParsnipSchuenemann: I believe you can mount the storage and change directory to the mount point and run:  md5sum -c MD5SUM00:33
glitsj16RaverX3X: glxinfo ?00:33
SLenNSup00:34
RaverX3Xfacepalm00:34
dead_mikeDr_willis: But I don't see how that matters - it should be just another block device storing some bits00:34
ActionParsnipSchuenemann: the MD5SUM may be different, it's a file in the USB00:34
Dr_willisdead_mike,  an AUDIO cd is one you dont mount if its playable in a normal cd player.  some file managers can show them as  containign .wav or other audio files as a feature of the filemanager00:34
Dr_williscould be dirt on the very start of the disk, or in the drive.  thats being skipped past  when accessing the cd normally00:35
dead_mikeDr_willis: ok, I'll check00:35

For some reason i am getting a lot of connection time outs when establishing connections both mysql 3306 and redis 6397... first i found that syn flood protection was blocking some stuff, so i managed to turn that off. but im not sure to see where else or02:42

DarkAceZusr13, not very sure, but I don't think so: the reader is a camera.02:49
DarkAceZjagginess, yes02:49
jagginessDarkAceZ, you screwed up the /dev/sdb table.. you should use GUI tools to do partitioning.. it should not say FAT16 for a big drive.. (i doubt it is a FAT16 filesystem there)02:49
DarkAceZI installed a newer version of the NVIDIA driver manually, and blindly.02:49
DarkAceZHeh?02:50
DarkAceZI don't think I touched that, unless you're saying it's from my NVIDIA fail...02:50
jagginessDarkAceZ, you should of uninstalled packages saying nvidia in them (you can list them with ->dpkg -l|grep -i nvidia)), then should of ran nvidia.run (you can stil try, but instead rerun nvidia.run after02:50
jagginessDarkAceZ, you did.. because partitioning tools wouldnt make that mistake..02:51

jagginessDarkAceZ, q quits, you can select the device with one of the commands.. then hit 'p' to print its table02:56
jagginessDarkAceZ, if you're in parted's prompt, you type "select /dev/sdb" to select it, then "p<enter>" should print the table and say whether its gpt or not02:57

bobolstuck on ./config...adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH env variable..?03:07
jagginessDarkAceZ, it'll say ntfs instead of fat16 (it doesnt touch the partitions, but updates the id in the partition table) -- it's safe03:08
bossollieActionParsnip:   i enterd that command which you posted and i got this http://pastebin.com/Z2SxYSQd  anything else?03:08

bobolActionParsnip, can you try to do that , and tell me what i'm missing?03:27
bobolActionParsnip, not using the .rpm...using the tarball..extracted, and getting a dependency unmet error on ./config03:28

* jagginess is assuming a .deb file was downloaded03:31
bobolActionParsnip, thanks anyway...apparently this is super easy and i'm just missing the big red letters at the top, so to speak?03:31
ActionParsnipbobol: the site http://www.getdeb.net/software/Entangle  says it has Oneiric and Precise debs for the app, if you use Oneiric or Precise it will install03:31

DarkAceZjagginess, nothing when doing "fdisk -l /dev/mmcblk0"03:37
jagginessDarkAceZ, did you load the module first with modprobe?03:38
bobolActionParsnip, i know...i did..one sec trying that03:38
DarkAceZI mean, no output03:38
DarkAceZoh03:38

pisecxI'm trying to setup tomcat port to 80 on ubuntu and get an error03:39

jagginessDarkAceZ, is there an sdhci module?03:39
pisecxis anybody familiar with it?03:39

bobolActionParsnip, i'm on oneiric03:40
jagginesspisecx, the user in question isnt allowed to open up as a service, try making a system user for that process03:40
ActionParsnipbobol: it has an oneiric branch03:40
DarkAceZI did "sudo lsmod |grep -i sdh" and there was no output. Then I did "modprobe sdhci" and still none, then "fdisk -l /dev/mmcblk0" and still none, jagginess03:40
ActionParsnipbobol: if you run:  sudo apt-get update     do you see getdeb or playdeb03:41
bobolActionParsnip, so what was i missing...where did you find the repository info?03:41
bobolActionParsnip, one sec03:41
ActionParsnipbobol: yeah you should see getdeb03:41
jagginessDarkAceZ, did this sd slot work before? (on winbloze?) (be sure -- if its an "onboard" that the bios' setting has the sdcard slot to "on")03:42
bobolActionParsnip, grepping it now03:42
ActionParsnipbobol: if you run:  grep -R getdeb /etc/apt/*   do you get an output?03:42
pisecxjagginess: it is a good way? or maybe it's better to install mod_jk and apache and interconnect tomcat and apache?03:42
jagginesspisecx, by default apache listens on port 80.03:42
jagginesspisecx, netstat -plutn |grep 80 , would show if port 80 is already occupied03:43
pisecxjagginess: yes, I know. I can install apache and put all traffic throught it to tomcat03:43
bobolActionParsnip, actually, I was running apt-get update |  grep getdeb..let me stop that and try that03:43

DarkAceZActionParsnip, hmm, yeah! But that'd be a pain to boot into every time I wanna move some files to it XD03:50
jagginessDarkAceZ, can you tell me if you have an mmc module? ( find /lib/modules/2.6.32-41-generic |grep mmc )03:51
ActionParsnipbobol: the page you gave said to use the playdeb repo, there was a linkto that which you could have clicked, then you would have found the 'how to add playdeb' page there and installe the app using apt-get or software centre03:51
DarkAceZjagginess, bunch more output03:51

jagginessDarkAceZ, can you tell me if its there for x41 (your running kernel, i dont need for the others) ?03:52
DarkAceZActionParsnip, yeah. (You do know I have Precise installed somewhere else, right?)03:52
jci need it works as fast it could!03:52
ActionParsnipjc: it can be beneficial to have a seperate /home partition but it's not necessary. The default install method is fine :)03:52
bobolActionParsnip, never mind, you just went to the home page where it explains all of that..now i feel extra dumb...thinking they should include an information link for those that didn't arrive there from the home page...you know, for nimrods like me...thank you for the help and the patience..03:52
jagginessDarkAceZ, what is in lsmod? (lsmod |grep mmc ) ?03:53

ActionParsnipjc: I'd go for Lubuntu, its sleek and made for 256Mb RAM systems (and higher)03:55
jagginessDarkAceZ, then I want you to see kernel message with-> dmesg | tail03:55
ActionParsnipjc: I'd try and get more RAM in it, it is cheap03:55
OerHeksjc, then add more ram, 256 is just enough for lubuntu, xubuntu runs better with 51203:55

wajeembaHello, I'm trying to plan out how to best share my home directory across an Ubuntu-Win7 dualboot install- right now I have moved the windows home dir to it's own partition. To configure Ubuntu to use this too, would it be wiser to symlink, or to mount the (NTFS, regrettably) partition directly as /home/username via /etc/fstab?05:31

paulus68Hey Actionparsnip welcome back :)05:46
yannick_just an idea05:46
BlueEaglewajeemba: No, I suggest that you get hold of a cheap old laptop and set it up with storage and Ubuntu server. That way you can have it run automatic backups as well! Locally I have a 64GB SSD and a 500GB storage disk for games and stuff. The irreplacable stuff is handled by the server.05:48

wajeembadaggs123: think you meant to send the pastebin to ActionParsnip ;)05:50
BlueEagleNighty___: It is better to utilize 90% of your RAM instead of having it just sit around doing nothing, isn't it?05:50
daggs123ActionParsnip?05:50
Nighty___BlueEagle yes, i understand that, but the system will free it as needed?05:51

BlueEagleNighty___: If you read the output from Free it is something like: 2061748    1903124     158624          0     243956    1195688. The last number is the cache. This is memory that holds data that the computer knows what is for so if another request comes for that data it will read it from memory instead of from disk.05:54
Nighty___Yeah yeah I know that, but its the first time that I see so high numbers05:54
Katelyndoes anyone know what I'm talking about?05:54

ActionParsnipherpderpmadman: lose the caps, I can read lower case just fine06:18
ActionParsnipherpderpmadman: because packages are dependant on each other in a tree like fashion so if you pull something out it may break deps and make the OS want to uninstall other packages06:18

ubottubrandon: RPM is the RedHat Package Management system. Ubuntu uses !APT, not RPM. RPM packages are not supported (the package "alien" can allow installing them, but it's quite dangerous and unsupported)07:27
DarwinSurvivorbrandon: which application are you trying to install?07:27

brandonits called pkTriggercord07:27
Shuckyi have lot of other repo and y have the same message for all (DarwinSurvivor)07:28
DarwinSurvivorkanupatar: the script is trying to install something that is not in the repo (or at least is named differently), which means the script is NOT compatible with Ubuntu 12.04 (or possibly any Ubuntu). You need to contact whoever wrote the script and tell THEM to fix it!07:30
DarwinSurvivorbrandon: you'll probably have better luck compiling from source07:30
auronandace!checkinstall | brandon07:31
ubottubrandon: checkinstall is a wrapper to "make install", useful for installing programs you compiled. It will create a .deb package, which will be listed in the APT database and can be uninstalled like other packages. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/CheckInstall - Read the warnings at the top and bottom of that web page, and DO NOT interrupt CheckInstall while it's running!07:31

ubottuUbuntu 12.04 LTS (Precise Pangolin) is the current release of Ubuntu.  Download http://releases.ubuntu.com/12.04/ - Release Info: http://www.ubuntu.com/getubuntu/releasenotes/120409:20
ocxcan i upgrade directly from jaunty to 12.04?09:20
kristenbbdooglus: I have "cat kern.log.1 | sed 's/.*[[][0-9.]*]//' | sort | uniq -c | sort -n | tail -1000", where kern.log.1 is 10GB. I have this running on a 16GB memory computer. Will I run out of resources before it completes ? (it has been running for a few minutes)09:20
paulus68I work with squid when I use the username password it's working now I added pivoxy and instructed squid to pass through pivoxy however the user and password that are working correctly in squid are not recognized any thoughts?09:20
doogluskristenbb: probably.  hit control-c09:21
kristenbbdooglus: done.09:21
kristenbbdooglus: I would like to see what is in that file though09:21
bekkskristenbb: sed is able to run inline, which will reduce memory overhead drastically,09:22
dooglusyou want to "head -n 10000 | sed ..." rather than putting the 'tail' after the sort09:22
kristenbbdooglus: I'm sure there's a way to do that incrementally, without requiring tens of gigas to be kept for internal calculus09:22
kristenbbdooglus: but head -n 10000 will not parse the whole file09:22
bekksAnd sorting the kern.log alphabetically is just nonsense.09:22
doogluskristenbb: I'm sorting the lines after taking out the timestamps so that identical errors will be adjacent - then uniq -c can count them09:23
doogluskristenbb: sorting is slow09:23
dooglusif you just want to page through it, use 'less'09:23
bekksDont use it at all for passing it to sed.09:23
bekksRun sed inline09:23
kristenbbdooglus: I don't want to manually read it either09:24
dooglusso kern.log is 10GB, kern.log.1 is also 10GB - do you have other kern.log* files in there that are big too?09:24
kristenbbdooglus: no, sorry for the confusion. Only kern.log.1 is 10GB09:24
doogluskristenbb: you'll find sort runs a lot faster if you 'export LC_ALL=C' first09:24
kristenbbdooglus: kern.log is 300M09:25
doogluskristenbb: and growing?  or is the disk full?09:25
MonkeyDustocx  what you can do: backup you personal files and fresh install 12.0409:26
kristenbbdooglus: well yeah probably full, I don't know09:26
doogluskern.log.1 is the previous version of kern.log09:26
doogluskristenbb: df -h . will tell you if the disk is full09:26
kristenbbdooglus: I know09:26
kristenbbdooglus: df -h . where ?09:26
dooglusin the folder you want to know if it's full09:26
kristenbb85%09:26
doogluslike in /log say09:26
kristenbb88 i mean09:27
ocx12.04 for ARM is available?09:27
dooglusoh, ok09:27
kristenbbsize 77, used 6409:27
kristenbbmaybe it was not 100 after all then?09:27
ocxmy system is ARM based09:27
MonkeyDustocx  http://www.ubuntu.com/download/arm09:27
kristenbbi don't know the exact number, but 77 makes sense. I thought it was slighly more though.09:27
bekkskristenbb: Just pastebin df -h09:27
dooglusso the problem wasnt caused by a full disk - so we're not going in circles :)09:28
kristenbbFilesystem      Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on                              /dev/sda5        77G   64G  9.3G  88% /09:28
dooglussomething has messed up the ecryptfs which is causing it to spam kern.log09:28
kristenbbdooglus: well you don't know that, because I just removed a bunch of stuff09:28
dooglus9.3G of stuff?09:28
kristenbbdooglus: well yes as a matter of fact09:29
auronandaceMonkeyDust: is arm an officially supported platform for ubuntu (or is it a community port like ppc)?09:29
kristenbbdooglus: I just removed kern.log.1 to another disk09:29
dooglusI see09:30
dooglusI think if it was me I would follow the steps in https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/ecryptfs-utils/+bug/372014/comments/2109:30
ubottuLaunchpad bug 509180 in linux (Ubuntu Maverick) "duplicate for #372014 ecryptfs sometimes seems to add trailing garbage to encrypted files" [Undecided,Incomplete]09:30
kristenbbI now have less than 5GB of personal files in /home. All the rest is just programs (well, firefox, mostly) and the rest is unaccounted for.09:30
dooglusbacking up first, if the files are important09:30
MonkeyDustauronandace  dunno09:30
kristenbbthat would just remove the files of length 0, right ?09:31
kristenbbdooglus: that would just remove the files of length 0, right ?09:31
doogluskristenbb: yeah09:31
kristenbbam I forced to create a file to do that ?09:32
kristenbbor can I send it in the terminal ?09:32
dooglusI dont think so09:32
dooglusjust in the terminal is ok09:32
dooglusthe $ prompt should change to a > after the 1st line09:32
kristenbbI pasted it there. It appeared with > before the lines09:32
kristenbbyes09:32
kristenbbnow what, just 'enter' ?09:33
dooglusyeah09:33
kristenbba bunch of errors occured09:33
doogluspastebin 'em?09:33
kristenbbthe first one is Specified filename find does not exist.09:33
=== Lloir|ZzZz is now known as Lloir
kristenbbthen there's also rm: invalid option -- 's'09:34
dooglusugh09:34
dooglusbecause one of the filenames begins with a dash I guess09:34
dooglusdoes this list files?09:35
kristenbbwell not on the screen09:35
dooglusfor i in find $(mount | grep " on $HOME type ecryptfs" | awk '{print $1}') -size 0c; do echo  " $i"; done09:35
kristenbbonly the errors where displayed09:35
kristenbbthis echo displays: find            and            /home/kristen/.Private            and      -size            and      0c09:36
dooglusthat script is all kinds of wrong then...09:36
=== railsraider_ is now known as railsraider
kristenbbthen why would you want me to execute it, are you trying to break it even further ? :(09:37
lagonaVhisto, i'm trying to do an upgrade and i get "WARNING: The following packages cannot be authenticated! python-debtagshw", is it safe to install ?09:37
The_ExplorerHelp: Query = How to Seperate X-server Nvidia. (+gnome-shell failure) Details -> Xserver (configuration of) -> 2 GPU (non-sli) 2 Monitor = 1per gpu | "seperate X-server" -> errors09:38
doogluswhat does this show  mount | grep " on $HOME type ecryptfs" | awk '{print $1}'09:38
MuelliThe_Explorer: which driver? i.e. the non-free one?09:38
The_Explorernon-free current, Muelli09:38
dooglusthe guy in the askubuntu thread says that that script worked for him09:38
dooglusI guess he's mistaken09:38
kristenbbdooglus: it shows /home/kristen/.Private09:39
MuelliThe_Explorer: :-( Sorry. Don't know anything about that. Any reason you're using the non-free one/09:39
The_Explorernon-free -> need Glibs support09:39
bekksThe_Explorer: Would you mind to explain what "errors" mean.09:39
The_Explorerrather because they have it09:39
The_Explorerbekks, gnome-shell fails to load, duplicates panels on attempt (They stack wierdly), second server remains raw/blank. no idea how to start environments on it (seperate from other screen)09:41
auronandacei wasn't aware gnome-shell supported multiple monitors09:41
bekksThe_Explorer: Then we need the explanation of what you have been doing exactly.09:41
doogluskristenbb: find /home/kristen/.Private/ -size 0c | while read x; do if ! fuser -v $x; then rm -f $x; fi; done09:42
kristenbbthe find alone fails09:42
=== luka is now known as Guest31643
doogluskristenbb: how?09:42
The_Explorer<auronandace> even if gnome-shell doesnt support dual monitors, It should support the first one, the second monitor should be seperate09:42
kristenbbdooglus: find /home/kristen/.Private -size 0c   returns find: `/home/kristen/.Private': No such file or directory09:43
The_Explorerbekks, I put in new card -> previous default was "twinview" spanned desktop. Changed monitor 2nd to new gpu, 1xmonitor per card. Powered on. Lightdm resolution error (primary monitor unchanged)09:44
The_Explorerthen from there, bekks; I deleted "xorg.conf" and made new one autogen. used nvidia-settings set up new server, on second, saved and rebooted.09:45
doogluskristenbb: this will recreate it:   ln -s /home/.ecryptfs/kristen/.Private /home/kristen09:45
kristenbbdooglus: be quick because it's shrinking by the minute lol. df -h . now shows: available: 9.0G. I did nothing since, but it was 9.3 a few minutes ago.09:45
doogluslol09:46
The_ExplorerGot unity 2d, lxde, gnome (classic) to boot on primary, second monitor remains naked.09:46
snarkpitIs there any way to get a run bar built into the GNOME taskbar?  I know you an add the run applet, where you can click on it and get a run popup box.  But what I'd like is the run bar to be built right into the taskbar, so I can easily just type in the name of an application without the extra click and extra window09:46
doogluskern.log is growing I bet09:46
paulus68I work with squid when I use the username password it's working now I added pivoxy and instructed squid to pass through pivoxy however the user and password that are working correctly in squid are not recognized any thoughts?09:46
The_ExplorerI can use the second monitor via (run in terminal) right clicking, or via "DISPLAY=:" variable09:46
kristenbbdooglus: probably. though you said it would only grow if it's full, which it aint09:47
doogluskristenbb: I think you misunderstood.  it can't grow if the disk is full, only if it isn't09:47
dooglusso run that ln command, then try the find again09:48
kristenbbdooglus: didn't you say these ecryptfs errors would only occur if that disk was full ?09:48
dooglusperhaps.  the ecryptfs errors are caused by zero length files in .Private, and those can be caused by a full disk09:49
=== railsraider_ is now known as railsraider
dooglusbut perhaps they are also caused by something else too09:49
kristenbbdooglus: kern.log is now 397M. I don't remember what it was before, but it wasn't 0, so kern.log is not the only problem :(09:49
The_Explorerlet me ask a different way: I want to learn how to change the display variables to Xserver. How do i modify the window manager to allow more than one instance of a window manager?09:49
bekkskristenbb: Did you provide the output of "df -h" already?09:50
kristenbbdooglus: yeah there are a few errors apparently09:50
kristenbbbekks: df -h shows /dev/sda5               77G   65G  8.9G  88% /     the others are different disks, it's irrelevant.09:50
kristenbbdooglus: I did this ln -s.09:51
kristenbbdooglus: Now what?09:51
kristenbbdooglus:  find /home/kristen/.Private/ -size 0c | while read x; do if ! fuser -v $x; then rm -f $x; fi; done ?09:51
doogluskristenbb: now find /home/kristen/.Private/ -size 0c09:52
super_why is it i cant use ffmpeg on ubuntu12.04?09:52

kristenbbdooglus: doesn't09:52
kristenbbdooglus: still doesn't exit09:52
kristenbbdooglus: still doesn't exist09:52
doogluskristenbb: what ln command did you run?09:52
kristenbbwait sorry I mistyped, find works09:53
dooglusshould be: ln -s /home/.ecryptfs/kristen/.Private /home/kristen09:53
dooglusok09:53

kristenbbdooglus: it's still 89% full.09:57
MonkeyDustsuper_  yes09:57

kristenbbdooglus: ...09:58
doogluskristenbb: try "tail -f var/log/kern.log"09:58
kristenbbdooglus: I have to go soon,but I'll be back09:58
dooglusthat will update in real time each time something gets written to the file09:58
dooglusso you'll be able to see if it's still getting new ecryptfs errors09:58
kristenbbdooglus: well yeah it is09:59
kristenbbdooglus: it's crazt09:59
kristenbbdooglus: it's crazy09:59
doogluslots of ecryptfs errors appearing?09:59

doogluskristenbb: can you reboot the machine?10:00
super_but thats too many steps10:00
kristenbbdooglus: I doubt it.10:01
MonkeyDustsuper_  logout brings you to lightDM, ctrl-alt-f1 gives a CLI10:01
doogluskristenbb: how about logging out fully all the kristen users?10:01
kristenbbdooglus: how do you mean?10:01
doogluskristenbb: to give the ecryptfs filesystem a change to umount itself10:01
MonkeyDustsuper_  start from the beginning, what do you want to do and what have you done and tried before you came here10:01
doogluskristenbb: are you logged on to it at home in the gui?10:01
kristenbbdooglus: yes10:01
doogluskristenbb: can you log yourself out?  is there stuff that needs saving?10:02
kristenbbdooglus: and I don't quite remember what's opened10:02
kristenbbdooglus: that would be risky10:02
kristenbbdooglus: are you sure it's required?10:02
doogluskristenbb: no - but its probably best10:02
PrinzPfeifihello10:03

dooglusI'd save what needs saving then k ill all the kristen user processes10:03
super_so that the scrollbars will disappear10:03
MonkeyDustsuper_  yes, you could try to logout10:04
super_without logout how would i refresh it?10:04
kristenbbhow would I save something as a openoffice file from command line10:04
MonkeyDustkristenbb  gnome-open10:04
super_on linux mint there was no need to logout10:04
doogluskristenbb: openoffice saves its own files regularly doesn't it?10:04
dooglusit offers to recover them when you restart it10:04
super_all i had to do was alt+f2 and type r10:04
kristenbbI'm gonna have to go now, sorry, I'll be back in half an hour as I said.10:04

HfuyUbuntu has been suggested, but I'm not sure what the best way is to check compatibility.11:12
xrdodrxHfuy: boot an ubuntu live disk and see if everything works11:13
HfuyThere is some information about the S12 on help.ubuntu.com, but it's a couple of years out of date. Can anyone suggest anywhere to look?11:13
HfuyTricky - no DVD-ROM drive on these.11:13
xrdodrxa live usb is possible too11:13
ikoniaHfuy: you'll have to google the chipsets/components linux support, then check that against the versions of software installed in the ubuntu release you want to use11:13

ikoniaHfuy: the last link in that info11:15
HfuyThe only reason I'm looking at this is that I don't do very heavy work on the laptop, and it's pig slow running Win7.11:15
psilo23yeah its all over the website, infact if you choose to download ubuntu from the website it will ask you if you want to run it from usb11:15

Hfuy*is* there any reason to assume Ubuntu would be faster?11:22
HfuyAnd I mean reasons beyond "omg linux is teh win" etc.11:22
BluesKajpsilo23, hi11:23
LjLHfuy: not really11:23
psilo23Well i can only tell you my own experience, when i was running windows on my old laptop it was very slow, booting slow, etc11:23
HfuyHmm. Okay.11:23
psilo23Now i run Ubuntu it doesnt even use 50% of the resources11:23
psilo23not even close11:23
psilo23lol11:23
psilo23While at windows it would use all the ram, get laggy because it used most cpu etc11:23
HfuyThe reason I ask is that Win7 is obviously using its... well, it isn't a GL compositor, it's a direct3D compositor, but you know what I mean.11:23
HfuyWhereas linux would be doing it all on the CPU.11:24
LjLHfuy: nope11:24
LjLHfuy: Ubuntu uses an OpenGL compositor11:24
psilo23I have to admit that i use Lubuntu, Ubuntu with the LXDE desktop, i dont know how usefull that one would be for you11:24
HfuyBy default?11:24
LjLHfuy: if your card supports it11:24
HfuyHm. When'd they start doing that?11:24
psilo23just beofer you came in the channel11:24
psilo23*before11:24
psilo23:P11:24
LjLHfuy: a while ago. initially it was Compiz on GNOME 2, now it's Compiz integrated with Unity i believe11:25
HfuyLast time I seriously used Linux was when Red Hat became Fedora Core Whatever in about 2004.11:25
HfuyIt sucked.11:25
HfuyIt was the most painful, unpleasant computing experience I've ever had, so I'm a bit cautious.11:25
LjLHfuy: the only thing is, by default Ubuntu comes with open source drivers for your graphics card, which for a variety of cards may not be the most performant. so when/if it offers you to install proprietary drivers instead, you should take into account the fact they may improve GUI compositing performance11:26
digital22hello?11:26
HfuyAh, yes, I did once set up Compiz on an eee-pc. It did eventually work quite well, but again it was pain and suffering to get it that way.11:26
HfuyLjL: Ah. Hmm. How linuxy :/11:26
=== odium is now known as Guest56513
LjLHfuy: well not Linux's fault if card makers can't get convinced to make their drivers open source :\11:27
HfuyI couldn't give half a blade of grass if the drivers are open source or not, I'm not a coder.11:27
LjLHfuy: well other people care, even if they're not coders.11:27
LjLHfuy: at least the option to use the proprietary driver is there and easily accessible11:28
HfuyI should make one thing clear before we go any further: I don't care about open source. Open source is completely and utterly irrelevant to anyone who isn't a professional software engineer, which is so near to everyone that it barely matters.11:28
Hfuythe phrase "you can modify the software yourself" is true only if you have the source code AND you are a software engineer.11:28
HfuyI am not, QED.11:28
LjLHfuy: well this is not the place to debate whether open source is relevant to you or not. but the fact of the matter, whether you and I like it or not, is Ubuntu at least attempts to separate open-source from closed-source components. if you don't like that, use a distro that doesn't do that.11:28
HfuyIf they're making things work less well, or increasing work for lay users because of open source politics, that's stupid.11:29
maplesoftwhat is the package name for java development kit and java runtime enviremnet?11:29
kristenbbhi, i'm back.11:30

kristenbbso I still have issues with my system that fills up my hdd. Can someone help me please ?11:31
LjLmaplesoft: jre11:31
HfuyI can't find out what graphics hardware this thing is supposed to have.11:31
maplesoftLjL and what is the jdk package name?11:31
LjLHfuy: if you're already on Ubuntu, "lshw -C display" should tell you11:31
HfuyI'm not.11:31
LjLmaplesoft: openjdk-7-jdk11:31
HfuyApparently, "nvidia ION" describes the entire chipset.11:32
Hfuy"with integrated geforce 9400M G GPU"11:32
maplesoftLjL if i install openjdk-7-jdk . it will install jre automaticall?11:32
HfuyOh, that's a concern: if I use Windows Media Player to play HD videos on this thing, it will use the Ion hardware acceleration. If I use VLC, it won't.11:33
HfuyThis isn't a dealbreaker, but I assume Ubuntu will be entirely unable to use the acceleration?11:33
LjLHfuy: not entirely, see http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1745698 for instance. apparently MPlayer with vdpau can do it11:33
brontosaurusrexHfuy, mplayer can, but due to your behaviour i will not explain how11:33
HfuyI'll take that as a "basically no" then. :)11:34
LjLHfuy: well you just won't be able to do with it VLC (it seems)11:34
HfuyIt's just odd to have a situation where WMP is faster than VLC. It's rare, but it happens!11:34
LjLHfuy: well i'm reading VLC's wiki and it seems there is something for it as well, but from the looks of it it isn't very integrated and easy to use yet http://wiki.videolan.org/VLC_GPU_Decoding#Linux11:36
kristenbbmy hdd gets filled up by my system for no reason. /var/log/kernel.log.1 takes 10 GB. What can I do about it?11:37
HfuyLjL: I think that's the same situation we were in about two years ago.11:37
MattiasHfuy: you need to use your nvidia card to play the videos, using vlc or mplayer11:37
HfuyThere is a check box I believe for it in the Windows version of VLC, but it doesn't work.11:38
LjLHfuy: anyway just to check, you're aware you can get a rough idea how well Ubuntu will work on your system by trying the live CD? of course it'll be slow because it needs to load stuff from a slow medium, but you should be able to test the hardware compatibility and a bit of the performance11:38

How should I make my decision on whether to use a VM, Wubi, or Partition my HD? Is there a way to switch between these while keeping settings/apps? (I have a non-switchable Nvida GPU, btw)12:19
boumawell i was using a local mirror. im going to set it back to the main site and reupdate and hope the package turns up magically12:20
BluesKajBrotherGA2, non-switchable Nvida GPU ?12:21
SeveasBrotherGA2, migrating settings/apps between ubuntu installs is easy.12:21
BrotherGA2BluesKaj: well, I heard there are issues for Optimus GPUs (I'm on a laptop)12:21
Seveasas to your original question: partitioning your harddisk will give you the fastest ubuntu12:21
Boogeymankristenbb, like i said, thats over my head. if it were me and google wasnt turning up any answers, i'd start a thread in the forums, and if that didnt help, i'd just back up my home folder and reinstall from scratch12:21
BluesKajBrotherGA2, ok , gotcha , altho bumblebee might work12:22
K-Labanyone have experience creating a volume on a msa ?12:22
Sidewinder1BrotherGA2, Stay far, far away from wubi..12:23
BrotherGA2Seveas: Really? If so, then I might start out with a VM, and switch to a partitioned install if I'm disatistied with the performance. Should I expect graphics hardware acceleration work fine in a VM?12:23
SeveasBrotherGA2, "it depends". I've had no luck with it12:23
Boogeymankristenbb, i'm used to helping people who know absolutely nothing about computing, and by knowing where to find the log file, i'm guessing you know as much if not more than i do, lol sorry I cant be of any help12:23
SeveasI'd pick wubi over vm12:23
kristenbbBoogeyman: thanks anyway.12:23
ikoniaSeveas: you surprise me12:24
kristenbbso can someone else maybe help me to figure out why my system uses 100GB even though there's nothing in it?12:24
BrotherGA2Sidewinder1: haha. allright. VM v. Partitioned. But since migrating settings is supposedly easy, I shouldn't have a problem, right?12:24
* Sidewinder1 Is surprised, as well..12:24
BrotherGA2I've had issues with wubi before, but it was a few years ago. I haven't used ubuntu since around 10.0412:25
Nick3one nice thing running a VM versus partitions is the snapshot feature, really nice if you're new to Linux12:25
BoogeymanI recently got my friend, a complete and total, and i really mean toatal, computer noob to install and use wubi12:26
giteshHI12:26
theSurvivorHi, I while apt-get update i accidentally pressed CTRL+Z now it's stoped but it's tempoary unavaliable, what to do?12:26
MonkeyDustwubi is not the most obvious or best way to install ubuntu12:26
MonkeyDusttheSurvivor  type fg 112:26
Sidewinder1BrotherGA2, I have two machines, both with some ver. of Win. and ubuntu; partitioning is the way to go. You will not be able to go from one to another without rebooting but the settings should remain. I'm not intimately familiar with VM as I don't have a lot of RAM..12:26
K-Labanyone have experience creating a volume on a msa ?12:26
BrotherGA2Boogeyman: I've installed it before. It's simple enough, I just ran into problems last time I installed it.12:26
giteshI just had Fun by pressing Ctr+Alt+F1. thanks :D12:26
Boogeymani only have to remote into him a few times to show him where something is, beyond that, it works fine for him, wireless on his laptoip worked out of the box right away12:26

kristenbbsipior: one of them is, yes. But I've already looked into it so I'd like the discussion to head another way. I found out that what was in kernel.log was only filling due to a bug in the encrypted file system of /home, that occurs when the system is filled. But we're going in circles. I'd like to know why it was filled in the first place.13:42

daoisHi, I'm trying to play quake, and I'm trying to run it on a different X session (ctfl+alt+f5), and I'm running into several problems. If I go to tty5 and issue "xinit /home/qlprism/qlprism.sh -- :1", I get the app but it doesn't have nor sound, nor maximize/minimize/close bar on top, which means I'm just running X with basic defaults I guess. The other thing is that as soon as I do ctfl+alt+f7 to go back to my original X session, if I want to return, I have t14:23
daoiso redo the whole process again because tty5 goes to terminal mode. What approaches should I be taking here?14:23
jactaBluesKaj: maybe /home in a partition for it self - and maybe some swap?14:23

brontosaurusrexstef1a, iam sure there is more options14:24
karangaI'm no expert but I would move it back and use the truncate command the poster suggests. That will free up some space in the meantime and you can research this a little more in the meantime.14:24
brontosaurusrexstef1a, b. is probably the easiest14:25

Mattiasnvm, found it16:58
Seveas[snake], the linux dynamic loader (ld.so), which is what runs "binaries", recognizes the type of files based on magic numbers appearing at the start of a file. '#!' is the magic number that says "this is a script that needs another interpreter. Read a single line of text and use that as the interpreter". For ELF binaries the magic number is 0x457f and it gts a lot more complicated :-)16:59

The curious thing is that after the reinstall the next reboot threw me into grubrescue (as it did before) and I had to reinstall grub to sda5 (12.04). The curious part is that even though I reformatted sdb with the "/", it no longer has the/ when viewed in gparted... :-(17:10

quarkhow do i can get 1280*800 ?17:19
Sidewinder1BluesKaj, I totally agree; I'm convinced that it has something to do with bt using sda/b versus my UUIDs cause on reboot the first message says (the UUID) no such device and throws me into grub-rescue. If I had a more intimate knowledge of grub-rescue, I could probably fix it from there. Guess that'll be my next challenge. Ahain, thanx.17:19

BluesKajSidewinder1, maybe the sata drive is mistakenly set as the default boot drive in the bios , that same scenario happened to me when i chose my 2nd drive as the default.17:21
lars__Hi guys. I'm in the process of installing 12.04 from USB alongside win7. It suddenly jumped out from the gui and froze on a black screen showing five lines. Last being: "[9.846880] device-mapper: dm-raid45: initialized v0.2594b". The pointer is the standard ubuntu-loading one, but it's stuck as well. Nothing responds. Should I force it off, and try to boot? Unfortunetely, I couldn't find an answer using google.. Thanks.17:21
beandoglars_: start install over17:22
Seveaslars__, what do the other 4 lines say? the one you posted is harmless17:22
BluesKajSidewinder1, in other words the grub menu on the 2nd drive ges overwritten at boot17:23
lotuspsychjeany gui package out there to set permissions to folders?17:23
Sidewinder1BluesKaj, Perhaps; I've had enough for one day; don't want to try to solve the problem with the hammer.. Have a good one! And thanks again..17:23
SeveasSidewinder1, hammers are fun!17:24
Sidewinder1:)17:24
beandoglotuspsychje: mm, nautilus17:24
Seveaslotuspsychje, the standard ubuntu file manager (nautilus) can do that17:24
Seveasrightclick on a file and select the appropriate optoin17:24
lotuspsychjeoh right17:24
BluesKajok Sidewinder1 , just a suggestion for the future ...got some yardwork to do and I'm trying put it off ... this is the perfect distraction ...the chainsaw can wait :)17:24
SeveasBluesKaj, chainsaws are fun too! :D17:25
BluesKajSeveas, well this new one has a bit of power that I'm not used to ...like a wild animal on the leash17:26
Seveassounds dangerous17:26
* Sidewinder1 Uses BluesKaj 's chainsaw to the stinkin' sdb drive... Wait, it passed right through it; should've used the UUID. :)17:26
Sidewinder1No more OT nonsense..17:27
BluesKajwell , I'll get used to it Seveas ..eventually17:27
lotuspsychjeSeveas:any ida why ubuntu does not set permissions to unreadable for other users by default17:27
Seveaslotuspsychje, because your umask does not include that bit17:27
lars__Seveas, It reads the following: 1. "[9.822592] Btrfs loaded" 2. "[9.827859] xor: automatically using best checksumming function: generic_sse" 3. "[9.846326]   generic_sse: 9559.000 MB/sec" 4. "[9.846328] xor: using function: generic_sse (9559.00 MB/sec)"17:27
lotuspsychjeSeveas: does not make any sense right other users can browse folder of root and its conent?17:28
Seveaslars__, ok, that's useless I'm afraid. Retrying (and praying that it works) seems like the best idea17:28
lars__Seveas, Ok thanks!17:29
Seveaslotuspsychje, there shouldn't be anything in there anyway as you're not supposed to be root :)17:29
lotuspsychjeSeveas: you cant open the file, but you sure can see it and its filename right17:30
MiteshShahlotuspsychje, Except this other users can read each other files by default. When i'm notice this thing and check ubuntu website ubuntu says its not bug its features for new ubuntu users to easily access each other files17:31

BrentWhat's the best practice.. Should I update everything when Ubuntu tells me to? - Seems like every couple days update manager pops up with a big list.17:34
jactalotuspsychje, no - not yet - forgot to add the rest as "storage"17:34
lotuspsychjeBrent: yes, update always when it asks you17:34
lotuspsychjejacta: you can format the unallocated space with dd17:35
lotuspsychjejacta: or reformat ubuntu and use all space17:35
jactabut is the current setup good?17:36
Brentlotuspsychje: thanks!17:36
lotuspsychjejacta:well that depends on your needs..why did you make sda3 only 13gig?17:37
gr33n7007hWhere do I add scripts to start before X server starts?17:38

rocki34Hi, I have a problem with Ubuntu on VM. I can't get my USB recognized by the guest OS. I'm using VirtualBox.17:39

rocki34kriskropd: Yep.17:41
lotuspsychjegr33n7007h: what kinda script you wanna run?17:41
gr33n7007hlotuspsychje, A shell script to aquire an IP address before X server starts17:42
kriskropdgr33n7007h: /etc/rc.local probably is where you will run your script17:42
kriskropdprobably17:42
rocki34kriskropd: Thing is my USB isn't getting recognized by Virtualbox itself. If I go into settings>USB>Add filter, my USB doesn't show up there either.17:42
gr33n7007hkriskropd, i'll try thanks man!17:43
kriskropdrocki34: yeah, I figured your problem was irrelevant to ubuntu, but gimme a sec ill play with it in a moment17:43
rocki34kriskropd: But my host OS is detecting it.17:43
lotuspsychjerocki34: arent there requierd usb drivers on the Os you running on virtualbox (did you check driverlist)?17:43
rocki34lotuspsychje: How do I check driver list?17:44
lotuspsychjerocki34: what is your guest Os?17:44
rocki34lotuspsychje: I haven't installed anything except for the Vbox extension pack and add-on17:44

etiote: Since its a disk from a friend, their may be a chance it already has several partitions on it. But it probaly wont be the case. I only want to have 1 partition17:59
kriskropdrocki34: virtual box has an OSE (open source edition) which lacks many things (includign USB support) and a PUEL edition (Personal Use) which has better support17:59
etiote: the disk in its entirity17:59
ufrgsI don't understand fdisk anymore.18:00
kriskropdrocki34: both are available in the ubuntu repositories I believe18:00
ResQueufrgs: sorry i was copying and pasting, i was trying to say, maybe you mean the word partitions. As in more than one partition of a disk18:00
ufrgsCould someone experienced help me please?18:00
ResQueufrgs: but i am just guessing, i had no idea what the hell you was on about, but dont worry i suck at spelling and grammer to.18:00
ufrgsResQue, well, yes.18:00
lars__Seveas, The install went smooth now. When I rebooted, the bootloader didn't find the USB-device, so it disconnected when installing. Anyways, I just used a different USB-pen, and now I'm up and running. Thanks again.18:00
lotuspsychje!info dd | ufrgs18:00
ubottuufrgs: Package dd does not exist in precise18:00
teetio: As you can see, it has 2 NTFS partitions on it, one very small one and then one big one.18:00
lotuspsychjehmmm18:00
* kriskropd facepalm18:00
lars__Seveas, *maybe it disconnected when installing*18:01
ufrgsDoes fdisk -l show windows partition also?18:01
kriskropdi think its a bug, i have dd O.o18:01
etiote: probaly windows who done that18:01
teetio: What do you want to do with it?18:01
teetio: Yes, probably so.18:01
etiote: I want to put loads of movies on it so i can use it as a media server for my tv18:01
ufrgsLike, say, sda1 would be my Ununtu partition and sda2 the Windows one, no ?18:01
rocki34kriskropd: That might just be the problem. How do I check if I have the OSE version?18:01
etiote: so really, i only need one folder called "movies"18:01
teetio: Ok so delete both partitiions and create one new one.18:01
sophie_lotuspsychje: so I just tried it, didn't work18:01
etioallright te18:02
lotuspsychjesophie_:holding shift didnt work?18:02
teetio: sudo fdisk /dev/sdb18:02
ResQueetio: dont store all your movies on the same partition as the os is installed, when it breaks its easy to fix :-D18:02
sophie_lotuspsychje: I still can't boot into any OS18:02
etiote: before doing that ill backup the existing data18:02
sophie_lotuspsychje: no,didn't work18:02
ufrgslotuspsychje, what ?18:02
ufrgsPlease, I need help, please????18:02
teetio: Good idea.18:02
etioResQue: no, ill be storing it on the disk we're discussing right now18:02
ufrgsI just installed GParted also.18:02
ResQueetio: Just thought i would give you a heads up :-D18:03
lotuspsychjesophie_:if you are sure no BIOS option has changed to any other boot device...you might wanna reformat it all18:03
subz3r0ufrgs, once again. was win7 installed before? Windows 7 will create a 100mb partition.18:03
etioResQue: thanks :)18:03
kriskropdrocki34: i'm not sure if this works because I installed my virtualbox without apt, but try dpkg -l virtualbox*18:03
sophie_lotuspsychje: what?18:03
kriskropdrocki34: i think it will list virtualbox-ose if you have it installed18:03
ufrgssubz3r0, yes, it was already installed.18:03
etiote: how do i actually browse into the second (big) partition?18:03
subz3r0ufrgs, there you go. the 100mb partition is from win718:04
lotuspsychjesophie_:for install Os sometimes you need to set cd-rom or usb to primary boot18:04
teetio: After that, just use fdisk to delete the two partitions and create one.  Fdisk will by default lable it as Linux.  Then use fsck to create the filesystem.  Then edit /etc/fstab and designate the mount point for it.18:04
ufrgssubz3r0, but how come Ubuntu be booting from this partition ?18:04
sophie_lotuspsychje: are you saying I should lose all my data and go into the long process of reinstalling a whole system just because the shift shortcut failed? I surely do hope there are other options before coming to that.18:04
etiote: allright, sounds like something i could do.18:04
rocki34kriskropd: It doesn't say OSE anywhere...18:04
etiote: as in, doesnt sound very complicated18:04
subz3r0ufrgs, you can install ofc the bootloader there. grub doesnt need that much space18:05
teetio: You will only be able to browse to it after you specify the mount point in the /etc/fstab file18:05
lotuspsychjesophie_:what was the last point you could boot any Os before?18:05
etiote: allright18:05
ufrgssubz3r0, and both partitions have the same File System, ntfs.18:05
subz3r0ufrgs, but i recommend for the next time. kill all partitions before you install it :)18:05
subz3r0ufrgs, thats the deal ;)18:05
teetio: man fstab  &   man fsck18:05
rocki34kriskropd: Ill post a screenshot of what I'm seeing, I don't know how to determine if it's the OSE version or not.18:05
beandogsophie_: wait ... what happened?18:05
teetio: but we will help as needed18:05
ufrgssubz3r0, and where is Ubuntu installed ?18:05
redscaredoes anyone know how to get dhclient to work on a network with a hidden ssid?18:05
etiote: allright, ill be figuring this out for the next 20min18:06
sophie_beandog: nothing happened, that I know of.18:06
subz3r0ufrgs, if its a fresh isntallation, just delete all partitions and reinstall ubuntu18:06
teetio: not fsck  mkfs   sorry...18:06
sophie_beandog: it's just that I can't boot into any OS no more.18:06
beandoguh .. okay?  why not18:06
teetio: Ok let us know if you need more help.18:06
beandogredscare: network manager lets you do it18:06
subz3r0ufrgs, i guess boatloader in partition one, ubuntu itself in partition two18:06
sophie_lotuspsychje: in time, you mean? just a few minutes ago ubuntu was working.18:06
beandogredscare: or do you wanna use iwconfig18:06
ufrgssubz3r0, I think my disk is completely full. That is why I am wondering.18:06
redscarebeandog: this is actually to solve a problem i'm having with nm18:07
ufrgssubz3r0, and where is windows then ?18:07
subz3r0ufrgs, sorry im out of time, need to eat then leave. but im sure any1 else can help you18:07
beandogredscare: whats the nm problem? (if I can ask)18:07
subz3r0ufrgs, one more question, did you use WUBI?18:07
ufrgsI hitnk so, why ?18:07
subz3r0awww18:07
lotuspsychjesophie_:did you update ubuntu before it happen?18:07
redscarebeandog: basically I couldn't connect to this hidden, wpa2-psk network today (i've been able to before which is strange). i decided to try to do it manually with wpa_supplicant/dhclient/iwconfig18:07
ufrgssubz3r0, yes, the applicatoin from Ubuntu CD. I think so.18:07
rocki34kriskropd: This is what I see. http://i.imgur.com/ye17y.png18:07
ufrgssubz3r0, Why?18:07
sophie_lotuspsychje: no18:08
ufrgsWhy?18:08
subz3r0explain youre question again, and tell the ppl that you used "wubi". im outta here. sorry18:08
redscarewpa_supplicant connects, but dhclient just goes forever without getting an ip18:08
ufrgsWhyyyy.....y ..... y....18:08
etiote: How about I leave it be NTFS, mount it with /etc/fstab and delete all the existing data on there ?18:08
Piciufrgs: stop that18:08
beandogredscare: k I gotta run, you can use iwconfig on cli though: iwconfig wlan0 essid <name> (or something like that)18:08
etiote: sounds easier18:08
ufrgsPici, so help me!!!18:08
sophie_lotuspsychje: I had other problems, but I think unrelated. also, as i said, i shut it down by force.18:08
ufrgsPlease :D18:08
ufrgsPici, will you :)18:08
ufrgsI need18:08
Piciufrgs: I don't even know what your issue is, I just see you asking 'why'18:09
sophie_lotuspsychje: the disk was full.18:09
lotuspsychjesophie_:its very hard to believe ubuntu cant be booted anymore or grub18:09
sophie_lotuspsychje: yet it's the case. So what can I do from here?18:09
subz3r0ufrgs, "explain youre question again, and tell the ppl that you used "wubi". im outta here. sorry"18:09
kriskropdrocki34: i'm not sure then :/ you should try asking in #vbox , they ought to know much more than I do ~ if they can't figure out why your virtualbox isn't working, they may be able to hint what you need to do on ubuntu to fix it18:09
ufrgsPici, well, I am facing huge problems here when I try to figure how is my HDD partioned.18:09
ufrgsPici, or partitioned, is this a word?18:09
subz3r0ufrgs, what did i tell you?18:10
redscarei'm having a problem where network manager won't connect to a wpa2-psk network with a hidden ssid. i then decided to isolate the problem. I can connect with wpa_supplicant, but then dhclient fails to get an IP address. I can also connect to non-hidden ssids. Can anyone help?18:10
teetio: You can, but I would strongly recommend you use a native Linux filesystem. Is there date on it you want to keep?18:10
subz3r0---> WUBI <---18:10
lotuspsychjesophie_:you could try windows7 cd to rescue, or ubuntu cd to repair18:10
subz3r0mention that...18:10
subz3r0bye18:10
etiote: date?18:10
tedata18:10
tesorry18:10
etioah18:10
etiouhh18:10
sophie_lotuspsychje: ok I booted into a CD. what now ?18:10
rocki34kriskropd: Ugh, the smaller IRC channels never respond. I'll try to download VBox again from the official site.18:10
lotuspsychjesophie_:wich one?18:10
etiote: well, yes. that's why i was backing up. Might as well leave it on there.. IF ntfs is not a problem18:10
Piciufrgs: What sort of problems?18:10
etiote: what kind of complications could NTFS cause?18:10
ufrgsPici, well the guy just told me to mention I've used WIBI, which I am not 100% sure either but I think so if my memory can help me this time.18:10
sophie_lotuspsychje: ubuntu 12.04 desktop18:11
Piciufrgs: How did you install Ubuntu? Did you boot from the CD or did you start the install from Windows?18:11
kriskropdrocki34: http://www.liberiangeek.net/2012/05/install-virtualbox-4-1-14-in-ubuntu-12-04-precise-pangolin/ here is a brief guide if you do that18:11
ufrgsPici, I have both Windows and Ubuntu installed at this HDD. And I am starting to feel both systems are HD space short.18:11
teetio: You can't have the file permissions that linux uses, but.... that's ok if you dont care.18:11
lotuspsychjesophie_:you can try a repair install with ubuntu18:11
kriskropdrocki34: also i'm sorry that smaller IRC channels tend to require more patience :(18:11
ufrgsPici, if I remeber well I did start installation from Windows.18:11
sophie_lotuspsychje: how to do that18:12
tolmunselfAnswer .. missing Python3 on default 12.0418:12
etiote: I actually do care. Allright ill back it up :)18:12
ufrgsPici, why is it so important ?18:12
teetio: So you can leave it as is and just use /dev/sdb218:12
rocki34kriskropd: Haha, it's nothing you should be apologizing for :P18:12
kriskropdrocki34: i've been there, done that, i know the pain >_<18:12
Piciufrgs: Because installing using WUBI does not partition the harddrive. It creates a file within Windows that it uses as a virtual drive.18:12
teetio: Ok copy files off of it and you can put them back on again when you are done.18:12
etiote: allright18:12
ufrgsPici, ohh... and is it good ?18:13
rocki34kriskropd: That's not what I find annoying though. I find it annoying that the IRC channels aren't even that small; they have like 150 people sitting in there. But not one will respond for like 15 minutes.18:13
Piciufrgs: good? Many power users don't like it because it makes troubleshooting booting issues much harder to diagnose.18:13
rocki34kriskropd: Thanks for the link, btw.18:13
ufrgsPici, ok, and lets say I want to partition my disk now, without loosing Windows. But reinstalling Ubuntu on its free new partition, is it possible?18:14
redscaresorry for repeating, but if anyone can offer any help i'd be very grateful: i'm having a problem where network manager won't connect to a wpa2-psk network with a hidden ssid. i then decided to isolate the problem. I can connect with wpa_supplicant, but then dhclient fails to get an IP address. I can also connect to non-hidden ssids.18:14
kriskropdrocki34: 150 people who have nothing to attend to will go off and do other things, leaving IRC open... I do that alot :)18:14
lotuspsychjesophie_:you can try this: http://askubuntu.com/questions/122683/upgrade-to-precise-messed-up-grub218:14
sophie_lotuspsychje: How to do a "repair install with ubuntu" ? Should I click on "try it" rather than "install it" ?18:14
Piciufrgs: yes, but if you're having space issues in Windows, you should get those sorted out before continuing.18:15
siavashserverufrgs, http://www.techspot.com/community/topics/step-by-step-beginners-guide-to-installing-ubuntu-11-10.172128/18:15
teetio: It is going to appear as just yet another directory in the already existing filesystem, so be thinking of what directory name you want for it.18:15
etiote: allright18:15
ufrgsPici, do you think if I partition the disk now from Linux side, can I loose Windows?18:16
lotuspsychjesophie_:try it18:16
subz3r0ufrgs, just finished lunch... and YES you CAN18:16
sophie_lotuspsychje: try what, exactly18:16
Piciufrgs: You should have backups before repartitioning.18:16
sophie_lotuspsychje: there are a few answers.18:17
sophie_lotuspsychje: should I just type update-grub into a terminal ?18:17
ufrgsPici, I have it, how do I do that ?18:17
lotuspsychjesophie_:choose try ubuntu, then go to terminal and update grub like the link says18:17
ufrgssubz3r0, man you eat fast heih!18:17
ufrgsPici, with fdisk ?18:17
subz3r0not rly, was already havin lunch while talking to you18:17
subz3r0use gparted18:18
siavashserverufrgs, gparted18:18
Piciufrgs: use gparted from the Ubuntu live CD18:18
Piciufrgs: But again, if you are having low diskspace issues right now, you need to figure those out before you continue.18:18
subz3r0ufrgs, but be aware. you damage the bootloader of windows = Crap is going on18:18
karen_Deckerst18:19
ufrgsCan't I edit those partition from Windows side to ensure it will stay ?18:19
sophie_lotuspsychje: an error occurred. It says: can't find a device for /. is /dev mounted ?18:19
lotuspsychjesophie_:interesting howto here too: http://thpc.info/dual/win7/dualboot_win7+ubuntu1204_grub_mbr_on_win7.html18:19
karen_Deckers : : : : Remember to make your ubuntu upgrades18:19
subz3r0ufrgs, if you have backups, i would recommend DELETE THE WHOLE DISK (all partitions). reinstall windows(without the 100mb parition, see google for that). the rest space will be unallocated.... there u can easily install ubuntu18:20
sophie_lotuspsychje: please note that this has been working before, and I didn't do anything to change it.18:20
lotuspsychjesophie_:if it cant find your hd, it might be broken or very FULL, if its full its gonna be hard booting to anything..18:20
sophie_lotuspsychje: I had windows 7 and ubuntu, and it was fine. Now I can't log into any of them.18:20
subz3r0ufrgs, but remember, its better to first install windows 7 and then ubuntu.18:20
sophie_lotuspsychje: yes it might be full.18:21
subz3r0Sophie_, what does "cant log int" mean?18:21
subz3r0does the system boot? any of it?18:21
lotuspsychjesophie_:sounds like you need a rescue cd to boot, to clean up hd space first18:21
sophie_subz3r0: no it doesn't even boot18:21
terinjokesis it possible to install Ubuntu Server 12.04 on an OpenVZ VPS?18:21
subz3r0or is there something like "no system found"18:21
karen_Deckersi use Ubuntu with only 20 Gio, the rest of the disk for Windows. i need to pratice linux CMD lines ..18:21
sophie_subz3r0: i don't even get to choose which system to find, it doesn't even get to grub. I just get 'no OS found'18:22
lotuspsychjesubz3r0: she says she cant login to grub neither anymore18:22
karen_Deckersany URl to learn Terminal use?18:22
subz3r0sophie_, sorry to tell you that, buts youre in a mess now. sounds like the bootloader is gone18:22

lotuspsychjesophie_:update grub from terminal as described in the link i gave you18:24
subz3r0ufrgs, there are several nice tutorials on youtube, how to install a dual boot system. just check em out18:25
kriskropdRaverX3X: try running top in a shell, you can hit 'c' to show actual commands18:25

sophie_sophie_: these last two were reposts.18:25
lotuspsychjesophie_:the disk might be full18:25
sophie_lotuspsychje: well yes I know that, so what can I do from here?18:25
ufrgssubz3r0, the idea of reinstalling Windows makes me fell bad.18:25
karen_DeckersUbuntu 12.04 LTS , thats totaly new to me. the last time i was on linux it was the 9.04 ..... Thanks for that Old School chat ;)18:26
subz3r0lotuspsychje, ext3 will reserve about 5% of the space.. so you cant run out of space18:26
subz3r0well should not be able to...18:26
kriskropdmelkor: usb bus only has so much bandwidth, also Linux manages the bus a little differently than Windows from what I understand18:26
sophie_lotuspsychje: and in any case shouldn't I at least be able to *read* grub ? I mean grub doesn't require *writing* to the disk, does it? Or is it possible that ubuntu overwrote over grub ???18:26
sophie_subz3r0: I have ext4. don't know if it's relevant.18:27
lotuspsychjesophie_:that depends what happened to the mbr18:27

teSkrillex123: F6 I think, (it should be on the screen).18:38
Jordan_Usophie_: Note that update-grub just updates the grub.cfg, it doesn't install grub. To run update-grub from a LiveCD/USB you'll need to chroot into your installed system first.18:39

lotuspsychjeJordan_U:she cant boot into grub or win7 anymore,18:41
lotuspsychjeJordan_U:i told her to update grub from within livecd18:41
sophie_Jordan_U: my issue is simple, I can't boot into any OS (I have 2, windows 7 and ubuntu 12.04 desktop 64b). It was working before, and I didn't change anything regarding this. I didn't install a new hdd or anything. The computer was shut down by force. And the file system where / and /home (it's the same partition) might be full.18:41
sophie_Jordan_U: and yeah, even grub doesn't show.18:42
Jordan_Ulotuspsychje: Just for the future, "update-grub" is never going to help with "OS not found" errors from the BIOS as it only rewrites /boot/grub/grub.cfg, it doesn't install grub.18:42
etioTE: ok, i'm ready to whipe the 2 partitions off now18:42

lotuspsychjethere we go..18:47
karen_Deckersi have windows 7 AND ubuntu into my HDD, dont have any troubleshoot =)18:47
Jordan_Ulotuspsychje: Installing Windows after Ubuntu will cause you to lose grub as Windows's installer will clobber it. That has nothing to do with the "update-grub" command.18:47

guntbertZehle: no, sorry, take your time, I only asked because of your response (to ubottu )19:10
sophie_Jordan_U: first of all there's something weird, it can't find sda5 but if I remember correctly that's where ubuntu is (though I might be mistaken). so if I try just mount /dev/sda5 /mnt, it says not found.19:10
glitsj16etio: http://askubuntu.com/questions/109938/change-hdds-uuid might help19:10
Zehleguntbert: it's okej I wasn't very clear in my words...19:10
BluesKajtnk,  in the terminal , sudo modprobe snd-hde-intel , if the module loads properly there won't be any output19:11
sophie_Jordan_U: and second, if I try just mount /dev/sda1 /mnt, it asks me to specify the file system. That's probably because it's a file system not known to ubuntu, which is of no surprise since that's not (as far as I remember) where linux is.19:11

tnkshould I assume that perhaps my mic will now work with a program activating it?19:29

tnkwhat do you mean?19:32
teetio: /dev/sdb1 /home/walter/media  defaults  0  019:32
tesorry19:32
Seveasscroat, sudo -u postgres19:32
etiote: oh, lol19:32
teetio  no need to reboot19:32
etiote: too late19:32
tnkBluesKaj, the sound setting config pavucontrol was SO much better in 11.xx19:32
auronandacesophie_: wow, big disks, two 2tb and a 3tb disk19:32
ActionParsniprbik: if you run:  lspci; lsusb     do you see bluetooth mentioneed?19:32
teetio: Ok... well you could have just mounted it.19:32
teetio: mount -a19:33
tnkBluesKaj, can't I just somehow rollback to that version?19:33
ZiberSo, I'm running out of reasons to keep windows 7 installed on my computer, save two or three. My solution then, for the instances where I need it (itunes, for instance), is to run Virtualbox. I also want to be able to mirror displays when I'm using a projector. Can I pass the VGA port to the VM somehow? This might be more of a question for #vbox.19:33
BluesKajtnk the dropdown in the input options19:33
etiote: i have the wrong line in fstab now, and i rebooted. will that cause problems?19:33
teyep19:33
auronandacesophie_: is that all of them?19:33
etiote: it gives connection refused trough ssh19:33
sophie_auronandace: yes, but one of the 2TB is dead, and the 3TB is just for saving in double what's in the 2TB. So in the end, just 2TB.19:33
tnkBluesKaj, what about the dorpdowns? I played with them already...19:33
etiote: oops :D19:33
teetio: Oh well... you can fix it19:33
etiote: not trough ssh i guess?19:33
auronandacesophie_: good to see you know the value of backups19:34
BluesKajtnk, no mic choices ?19:34
=== xazax is now known as Guest94587
teetio: Sure, thourgh ssh19:34
sophie_auronandace: no it's not. There's the system, which is a sdd of roughly 200GB, half for windows 7, and half for ubuntu. But it doesn't show up, and that's why I can't boot. But why doesnt it show up? As i said, it might be full, but is that enough of a reason ?19:34
tnkBluesKaj, what are you asking? input devices lists lifecam and built-in audio stereo19:34
etiote: nope, ssh is refusing my connection19:34
tnkI can't see the blue line move back and forth with the lifecam, though, as I'm supposed to19:34
teetio: Probably not rebooted yet...19:34
gsedejhi! Using 12.04 live cd and wish to make FAT USB disk executable (run programs). I mounted with mount -o rw,exec,umask=1000, but it still says permision denied19:35
ActionParsniprbik: i'm seeing a lot of pages saying it's advertised as having bluetooth but in fact doesn't have it19:35
rbikActionParsnip No I don't.19:35
auronandacesophie_: so you got 4 disks, 1 is the ssd that doesn't show up at all19:35
sophie_auronandace: yes19:35
BluesKajtnk , got a mic input on the lifecam ?19:35
tnkBluesKaj, what are you asking?19:36
sophie_auronandace: for no reason, I didn't open the computer nor did I do anything that might change the mbr or grub or whatever this whole lot is.19:36
yannickok i'm wired now and not yet in wireless do you want it?19:36
tnkBluesKaj, I'm having difficulty understanding you19:36
auronandacesophie_: i take it that boot script was run from your livecd, so it represents your current situation? (hence why the ssd isn't on it)19:36
sophie_yes19:36
teetio: Do you not have a monitor and keyboard?19:36
ZyewniHow can I modify a launcher shortcut to launch a program with parameters?19:36
etiote: no, but ill hook it up right now19:36
etiote: doesnt seem like i can ssh in19:37
etiote: note that the bad line refers to /dev/sda1 which was already mounted19:37
teetio: Sure you have the IP correct?  And that it has rebooted?19:37
ActionParsnipgsedej: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/linux-general-1/problem-executing-scripts-on-mounted-fat32-partition-178934/19:37
auronandacesophie_: that's rather perplexing, the case didn't get knocked or anything? dislodged the ssd perhaps?19:37
Ziberattempting mirroring displays makes my screen go black and I end up having to restart. any solutions for this?19:37
rbikActionParsnip ok I'll look into it thanks for all the help!19:37
fabian__sophie_, if you have anything really important on those systems go the a store next corner and buy a new HDD, reinstall one of the systems and to to check if this HDD is still working.19:37
BluesKajtnk, exactly what I asked , is the a micrphone input on the attached lifecam , otherwise your options are taken up by them19:37
etiote: yes, and yes19:37
sophie_auronandace: I could open it up but I really doubt it.19:38
teetio: Can you ping the IP?19:38
ZiberBeen trying all day to solve this mirroring issue, to no avail :(19:38
fabian__sophie_, maybe your disk burned.19:38
sophie_auronandace: the disk was full though, and the computer was shut down by force. I Don't know if this information is relevant.19:38
sophie_fabian__: I doubt it.19:38
fabian__sophie_, boot from cd and make a disk test.19:39
sophie_fabian__: I am logged into a live cd. What disk test are you talking about19:39
tnkBluesKaj, the Lifecam has a USB connection. It is a single connection. There is no separate microphone input.19:39
auronandacesophie_: i can't see that affecting whether the disk is detected19:39
sophie_auronandace: neither can I, but I'm just so lost that I'm giving away any information that can help you help me.19:40
fabian__sophie, I am afraid you gonna have to reboot.19:40
etiote: its not up, scanned the ssh port with nmap19:40
auronandacesophie_: it would just run a fsck next time it boots, not cause the disk to completely disappear19:40
sophie_fabian__: what do you mean by reboot.?19:40
etiote: ill just hook up a monitor19:40
UbunewbHi, I am using Rythmbox to play an audio CD. It does not fetch the right Songnames etc, instead it tells me that MusicBrainz cant find the right data. If I click on the "help submit data bla..." however, there is the right suggestion for the CD! How can I auto-tag the CD with Rythmbox properly?19:40
sophie_auronandace: come again?19:40
teetio: How do you know it has rebooted?  Yes hook up a monitor and keyboard...19:40
sophie_auronandace: what is it that you want me to do exactly ?19:41
gsedejActionParsnip, thanks. didn't know about order :)19:41
fabian__sophie_, when the boot shows a small white keyboard hit any   key you gonna see the tests available.19:41
auronandacesophie_: i haven't suggested anything yet19:41
Brnocristhi19:41
sophie_auronandace: oh, sorry19:41
teetio: For all you know, it could be doing filesystem check, (it is a periodic function done at boot time).19:41
ZiberIs it a common issue that mirroring my computer (running 12.04) to a projector doesn't work? Extend works just fine.19:41
Brnocristwhy this script from udev event doesn't work? http://pastebin.com/iDzAhrK7 the error is: '** Message: Failed to get session bus: The connection is closed'19:41
sophie_auronandace: what was that about the fsck19:41
etiote: true, we'll find out soon enough19:41
bbhossthis is kinda random, but does anyone know why these other packages aren't going to be installed? : https://gist.github.com/e0101d772a9cdadce866 this is on 12.04 with a custom ruby1.9.1 PPA19:41
teetio: Ok19:41
fabian__I got to go now.19:42
auronandacesophie_: just saying if the pc was shutdown abruptly then the next boot will begin with an automatic fsck19:42
teetio: This is pretty extensive stuff here on a busy channel, shold have moved to PM.19:42
sophie_auronandace: oh, well yes you're right.19:42
auronandacesophie_: is the ssd pretty old? not nearing the end of its life?19:43
Brnocristanyone?19:43
sophie_so why is my disk not showing in sudo fdisk -l even though it's wired, and even though it was working a few hours ago, and even though it's brand new ?19:43
sophie_auronandace: no, a few months old19:43
guntbertZiber: I have no idea, but you might want to tell the channel a little about your hardware (at least about the video card)19:43
beandogsophie_: that's not good.  Unhook it and reattach it19:43
Ziberguntbert: intel onboard graphics card, i think. how do i get exact info? lspci?19:43
tesophie_: Disk failure?  ....19:43
auronandacesophie_: i'm stumped, the only thing i can suggest is rechecking and reattaching the ssd19:44
tnkauronandace, can you help me get my mic working?19:44
=== lucas_nemeth_ is now known as lucas_nemeth
auronandacetnk: i'm no good with mics sorry, i just plugged mine it and it works, beyond that i know nothing more19:45
tnkAnyone good with mics in here?19:45
BluesKajtnk, , this might work , alt+f2 , gksudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf , add this line to the bottom of the file and save it , options snd-hda-intel index=019:45
livingdaylightHia19:45
guntbertZiber: try   sudo lshw -C video, put the output into a !pastebin please19:46
ZiberWhen trying to mirror displays, my laptop screen goes black and the projector's image freezes. lspci info: http://inside.liber.in/~ziber/lspci.txt19:46

tetnk: Are you sure you have a working mic plugged into correct port?19:46
livingdaylightI have a an application-installer.bin file and wonder how I install it, anyone, please?19:46
sophie_once again, before I forced the system to shut down, the system was complaining that the disk was full (well, the partition it was on). Could it have overwritten mbr or grub or other things that would make it not appear in gparted anymore?19:46
tnkte, yes.. it's a mic combined with webcam19:46
tetnk: And that it is not muted or turned down?19:46
tnki can get as far as hearing voice input echoed in gstreamer settings19:46
auronandacesophie_: no, was grub on the ssd?19:46
sophie_auronandace: yes19:47
tnkbut i can't get pavucontrol input adjustments to reflect any edits or show voice input19:47
tnki'm looking at the mic entry in pavucontrol, but i see no voice blue line19:47
Ziberguntbert: http://inside.liber.in/~ziber/video_info.txt19:47
auronandacesophie_: that's why you are getting the no OS error19:47
sophie_auronandace: yes19:47
BluesKajtnk, did you see my last post above ?19:47
tetnk: Oh, well I dono.. you will have to look for that channel.  If it is not a mic plugged into the sound chip, I dono... you will have to check with the webcam's documentation or thier support19:47
tnkte, which is the channel?19:47
ActionParsnipsophie_: you can use bleachbit to clean stuff and renove old kerbnels. Also clear browser cache and run: sudo apt-get clean19:48
tetnk: I don't know.  Is it USB?19:48
tnkte, no, it's not the lifecam .. it's a common issue.. was working fine in 11.10.. broked in 12.xx now19:48
sophie_auronandace: so the question now is why is the disk not recognized anymore even though it was a few hours ago, and even though I didn't touch it.19:48
tnkte, yes19:48
auronandaceActionParsnip: she can't access it, its disappeared19:48
etiote: an error occured while mounting /home/walter/media19:48
sophie_ActionParsnip: are you talking to me?19:48
Ziberguntbert: any ideas?19:48
etiote: press S to skip mounting or M to manually ....19:48
ActionParsnipauronandace: what disapperaed?19:48
ActionParsnipsophie_: those are ways to free space19:49
auronandaceActionParsnip: her ssd19:49
sophie_ActionParsnip: my disk19:49
teetio: No doubt.  Edit /etc/fstab and fix it.19:49
etiote: i did19:49
ActionParsnipsophie_: does it show in BIOS?19:49
etiote: i set it to sdb119:49
tes19:49
chigginsI set my desktop up with likewise open and it was working fine, but after an upgrade my user account isn't shown on the login screen. how can i have my domain account show up there?19:49
etiote: still this error19:49
beandogsophie_: sounds like hardware failure19:49
guntbertZiber: I suppose you tried the approach with "displays"?19:49
teetio: mount /home/walter/media19:49
sophie_ActionParsnip: I have not checked that.19:49
teetio: Do you get an error?19:49
sophie_ActionParsnip: however it doesn't show in gparted or fdisk -l19:49
Ziberguntbert: I went to Displays and checked "mirror"19:49
Ziberand then my laptop screen goes black and the projected image freezes. all i can do then is restart.19:50
teetio: Are you rebooting again?19:50
etiote: no, let me try19:50
sophie_beandog: could hardware failure be triggered by the disk being full ? and how to repair it ?19:50
etiote: uknown filesystem for 'defualts'19:50
etiote: i am skeptical about the etx4 command, did it work?19:50
Ziberbrb.19:51
teetio: Check your fstab line19:51
etiote: for what?19:51
ActionParsnipsophie_: if it doesn't show in BIOS then its hardware19:51
jactais there a way to get corners reponse on bigger area for resize? Finding the current setup really hard to resize windows19:51
guntbertZiber: well, that was as far as I could try to help - I have very little experience with video issues19:51
teetio: /dev/sdb1 /home/walter/media  ext4  defaults 0 019:51

rrrrsophie_, you still can exchange the driver controler and save your data.19:52
auronandacesophie_: if it is hardware failure you don't repair it, you replace it (but you don't know if it is hardware failure yet)19:52
Ziberguntbert: well, thanks for trying19:52
guntbertZiber: but at least you are prepared for those who can help - simply ask the channel again (all in one line) and mention your pastebin19:53
sophie_rrrr: what does that mean?19:53
sophie_ActionParsnip: let me check that then.19:53
sophie_auronandace: I hope it's not then.19:53
Ziberanyone else have experience with mirroring displays on 12.04 (i can extend just fine, but i want to mirror when using a projector). http://inside.liber.in/~ziber/lspci.txt and http://inside.liber.in/~ziber/video_info.txt19:54
etiote: trying your last suggestion now19:54
rrrrsophie_, it means if you HDD is burned you still able to save your data, possibly.19:54
auronandacesophie_: if it is hardware failure then you know where to not buy ssds in the future, and hope you can get money back19:54
teetio: /dev/sdb1 /home/walter auto,users,rw 0 0  #Try this one...19:54
tnkBluesKaj, It seems to be working - just only when a program is activating the microphone...19:54
rrrrHow do I figure a keyboard key to access a weird machine BIOS ?19:55
teetio: To test.  mount /home/walter/media19:55
tnkI think the issue is that pavucontrol does NOT activate the microphone19:55
tnkThus it isn't showing it receiving voice input19:55
wadrrrr, what key?19:55
teetio: /dev/sdb1 /home/walter/media auto,users,rw 0 0  #Typo correction...19:55
rrrrwad, BIOS key.19:55
greasegumis there a utility to create a duplicated system configuration on another machine?19:55
rrrrsophie_, make a disk test.19:55
teetio: Test it, (don't reboot)!19:55
Ziberthis is one of the last problems i have that are keeping me from migrating completely to ubuntu and just VM'ing windows for itunes and things.19:56
etiote: /dev/sdb1 /home/walter/media  auto  defaults 0 019:56
etiote: ^ that worked19:56
zixxy primeras, just do what the output says, run 'sudo apt-get -f install' - it fixes broken packages19:56
teetio: Ok good.19:56
etiote: i can ssh again19:56
wadrrrr, You're on a laptop and there is a key on your keyboard that does something with the BIOS?19:56
etiote: and the disk works19:56
primeraszixxy: http://pastebin.com/hGqGknf119:56
rrrrwad, what? no I am on a desktop machine and I can't figure which key I need to press in order to boot from BIOS.19:56

primerasapt-get -f install not working :/19:57
BluesKajtnk, ok , how did you get the mic to work ?19:57
etiote: thanks so much19:57
