soundrayGuest50131: cool. Did you see my earlier question?00:10
Guest50131it appeared to work perfectly. the error message was when i clicked on the partitioning step of the install.00:11
Guest50131i clicked "install ubuntu alongside windows 7" and got the error00:11
Guest50131but until then, everything worked flawlessly.00:11

soundrayGuest50131: okay, I think you should just have another go at installing. Launch it from where you are -- you should see an icon for installation00:15
Guest50131okay00:15
Guest50131double clicked the icon00:15
soundrayGuest50131: unfortunately, I can't keep you company through the process -- gotta leave now00:16
Guest50131okay thank you for all your help! would you recommend trying a diff release of ubuntu if this doesnt work??00:16

Guest50131ok thanks!00:17

Guest50131i also tried to install a 64-bit (checked my computer and it's a 64-but). could that have made a difference? i just want linuxxxxx00:57
Dr_Williszykotick9:  they had 64gbs for $64 ir sill.00:57
Dr_Willispeeps[work]:  one is sh.. other is bash. :)00:58
Dr_Willispeeps[work]:  sh is a limited shell compared to bash.00:58
zykotick9peeps[work]: very...00:58
peeps[work]but aren't they interoperable for simple scripts00:58
northernenIn most cases though, sh is just a symlink to bash.00:58
Dr_Willispeeps[work]:  if you use JUST sh features..  you can use bash in your #! or sh..00:58
peeps[work]i mean, the script is a one liner with no fancy conditionals or variables or anything00:58
zykotick9peeps[work]: is you want the maximum cross-OS compatibility, use sh, if it's for gnu/linux bash should work fine.00:59
Dr_Willispeeps[work]:  if you use BASH features you really should use bash in the #!.  in ag4es past people would get lazy and use SH when they ment BASH00:59
peeps[work]does sh do backticks00:59
northernenGuest50131, I don't have any idea why it keeps ejecting it, no. But installing an earlier version and upgrading does not seem like a bad idea.00:59
northernenpeeps[work], yep.00:59
Guest50131northernen: ok, thanks :(00:59
King_Cobrado you have a jump drive guest?00:59
northernenpeeps[work], oh wait, sh, no idea.01:00
Dr_Willisbackticks make for hard to read code.. :)   use of $(command) i think is perfered these days01:00
Guest50131link to the 9.10 installatio ISO??01:00
northernenI always thought sh was just a symlink to the default shell for the distro.01:00
Dr_Willisnorthernen:  in ubuntus case that sh is DASH.. not bash..01:00
Dr_Willisthe change from bash to dash, casued a lot of issues ages ago01:01
peeps[work]ok, well i put binbash in there, hopefully on monday i will see that my jobs have run01:01

Adiethough... is a wubi install something I can open in vmware/virtualbox?01:24

Adieor was it 2...01:25
XIIIzykotick9: it was the default option when installing ubuntu, it loads everything as kvm-qemu and i have libvirt, not exactly sure which it is using01:25
Adiealso! how much would wubi DESTROY I/O performance?01:26
Adieif any01:26
AdieI have a good computer, but ubuntu is not liking all I am doing with it01:26
AdieQT Creator + chrome + a windows 7 virtual machine, and the thing just locks up a lot01:27
Adieidk if making a REAL ubuntu installation would fix that01:27
b3rz3rk3r_Adie, you will get better disk performance by either installing it properly to disk or using a virtual environment like VirtualBox01:27
Adieyeah, looks like the root disk is 19gb01:28

dmp450xyverz, because in the install it says i can install along gentoo(which I imagine is on the internal), wipe gentoo(still on internal), or something else04:02
xyverzdmp450: if your USB drive shows up during the install as a viable drive, you should be able to partition that and leave your Gentoo partitions alone.04:03
xyverzthe only problem you may have would be when installing grub... As far as I'm aware, they took out the ability to place the bootloader in a custom location in the ubuntu desktop installer.04:03

__dbro__Primary04:47
Nautilushuh, I'm trying to make two identically sized partitions on this hd, one has the total sector size I want but the same numbers in gparted make a slightly different size partition.  This seems so odd.04:48
rhysoh. ubuntu ubuntu. No, this is an auto install.04:48
Guddu__dbro__, That means i will have no logical partitions at all....Is that ok?04:48
rhysi guessed right04:48
Nautilusdifferent size second* partition04:48
__dbro__erm...I haven't a clue.04:48
__dbro__I just used my entire disk04:48
Guddu__dbro__, No performance implications to that?04:49
__dbro__I dunno. I'm not exactly an expert when it comes to partitioning04:49
Nautilusno reason to have a logical partition unless desired04:49
GudduNautilus, So i will have 24 GB in Swap and just one primary parition covering rest of my 1TB Disk Space. Is that fine?04:50
Nautiluswell it's fine but the real decision is up to you and depending what you'll be doing.04:50
GudduNautilus, __dbro__, has it that way and it works fine for him. Just wanted to confirm if there is some implication to performance.04:50
Nautilusif you're new to ubuntu and going to use it as a desktop, probably fine.04:51

Nautilusthough it is getting full, heh04:52
Guddulol04:52

rhysalso, cfdisk works well nuff.05:06
pishguyi don't have vpn submenu on networkmanager for connect after create new profile05:06
Guddurhys, There is a OnScreen Keyboard .... So i can proceed with my install05:06
Nautilusrhys: I'm trying to make two partitions the same sector size. The first one hit the mark, but the second is a little bigger.  neither is the first on the disk (where it seems one track gets stolen from the size, for boot info).05:07
rhysGuddu, i thought you meant server05:07
Guddurhys, Apologies for the confusion...It was desktop05:08
GudduServer does not have on screen keyboard during install?05:08
rhysNautilus, i would ask why care, unless you're trying to hit specific borders for later partitions.05:08
Nautilusrhys: so I can clonezilla back & forth05:08
rhysGuddu, server is ncurses and most install now with deployment systems.05:08
GudduOh05:09
victor_ls05:09
rhysNautilus, clone zilla reads filesystem level unless you're having to block copy, which is extremely inefficient. so make the clone drive just a touch bigger than the source drive.05:10
Nautilusi can't clone back then05:10
victor_quit05:10
rhysNautilus, you can. because the filesystem wasn't changed on the cloned system to expand to the larger partition size05:10
mrgrinsthank you rhys05:10

victor_I am not sure. I just know it is a communication tool. I want to try it. dj_segfault, do you know where I can get the help documents?05:13
Nautilusrhys: no, basically I'm making a backup partition in case I need it.05:13
dj_segfault victor_: what program are you using?05:14
victor_dj_segfault, irssi. Do you mean we can connect to this forum via various tools?05:15
rhysNautilus, then if you can I'd just format the other harddrive like an external disk, format it in whatever, and then clone to file instead of cloning disk to disk05:15
dj_segfaultvictor_: Is that the Android app?05:15
victor_dj_segfault, maybe it is available on Android platform. However, I am from Ubuntu.05:16
Nautilusrhys: but i want to access the individual files in the meantime.05:16
rhysNautilus, also if clonezilla complains (i don't know), it still uses this: http://www.partimage.org/Main_Page to clone the filesystems05:16
rhysNautilus, if you can mount an ext3 drive, you can just as easily mount an ext3 image05:17
dj_segfaultvictor_: If you're new to this, I would suggest you install and use pidgin, which is very easy to understand and use.05:17
Nautilusand access the files?   ohhhhhhhh05:17
victor_thanks, dj_segfault.05:17
dj_segfaultNautilus: I think it's mount -o loop myisoimagefile05:18
rhysNautilus, as long as you're not imaging a disk, in which case you need to have an offset, the image of the filesystem mounts with no extra arguments.05:18
rhysmount -o loop myisoimagefile /mnt/point05:18
Nautilusyes, a partition not a disk05:19
Nautilusbut hm, that won't CloneZilla back in place?05:19
Nautilusoh right it would, as Image->Partition, yes?05:20

Moonlightning…I have to write an /init script/ to turn off home directory encryption?06:30
McFlyMoonlightning, no, only for decrypt it in another folder. but that is not what u want. sry06:31
Moonlightning…okay. So, on the subject of recovering my data and properly disabling home folder encryption…06:32
MechdaveMoonlightning, Have a look here for removing encryption06:32
McFlyMoonlightning,  decrypt it, make backup, delete it, make a new one06:32
MechdaveMoonlightning, -->http://askubuntu.com/questions/4950/how-to-stop-using-built-in-home-directory-encryption06:32
MoonlightningMcFly: too late on the backup. :V06:33
King_Cobraeh.. ok06:34
MoonlightningMechdave: thanks, I'll try that right after I recover my data.06:35
cristian_cAn other question06:35
maoCan I dump-core a xen virtual mechina to a remote host06:36
MoonlightningTo the channel in general: I apparently bucked up a home directory encryption system; there's just a readme file in ~ now saying to run `ecryptfs-mount-private`, which gives me ==> ERROR: Encrypted private directory is not setup properly06:36

cristian_cI've installed easy-deb with virtualenv. I checked what software were installed in the virtual environment (with yolk -l), but I've not found easy-deb in the output list.

diverdudeIve got different stuff that I need to back up on my server (running ubuntu server), however, primarily its homefolder, /var/www, content of mysql database and git repositories. I am not really sure how much space it takes up totally, but not that much. How do you guys backup your stuff? Do you have automated scripts for that? Online backup? I am very interested to hear some good practices. Thanks06:43
MechdaveMoonlightning, Have a look here for the encryption post install setup --> https://help.ubuntu.com/community/PostInstallationEncryption06:44
nbagsdiverdude: i used to use rdiff-backup. but now i use crashplan. its great!06:44
MoonlightningMechdave: I'm trying to /recover/ data from a bucked home directory, and then /remove/ the encryption.06:45
McFlyMoonlightning, http://askubuntu.com/questions/106619/encfs-home-directory-ssh-access-dismount-after-a-while06:45
McFlyMoonlightning, same problem?06:46
MoonlightningOkay, just…06:46
MoonlightningForget about working /with/ the encrypted home. I'm just going to get rid of it.06:46
MoonlightningSo, how do I recover my data?06:46
GudduHow do i access terminal on Ubuntu 12.04?06:46
MoonlightningGuddu: control-alt-T06:47
diverdudenbags: crashplan. whats that?06:47
McFlyMoonlightning, decrypt it with encfs06:47
GudduMoonlightning, Is there a menu option? Instead of having to remember the CTRL Key Combinations?06:47
MoonlightningMcFly: how do I do that?06:47
nbagsdiverdude: its an online service. but you can also backup to other pcs, or external media06:47
MechdaveMoonlightning, As in a /home that you have previously encrypted but now can't read?06:47
GudduMoonlightning, I think in older versions there are menu options for this and other apps.06:47
diverdudenbags: aha, so they have software i can install to use for the backup?06:48
nbagsdiverdude: yes06:48
MoonlightningMechdave: /exactly./06:48
MechdaveMoonlightning, Have you attempted to remove encryption but failed?06:48
McFlyMoonlightning,  type in a Shell: encfs -S /home /media/decrypted_Home06:49
MoonlightningMechdave: Yes. Didn't I say that before?06:49
MoonlightningMcFly: just /home?06:49
MechdaveMoonlightning, Sorry just clarifying :)06:49
MoonlightningMechdave: okay…06:49
McFlyMoonlightning, yeah /home is encrypted and u want to decrypt it06:49
MoonlightningMcFly: not /home, /home/blackl.06:50
Moonlightningi.e. /my/ home directory06:50
GudduPlease help06:50
MechdaveMoonlightning, Have you attempted backing up your encrypted /home directory and reinstalling the encryption as in this here --> https://help.ubuntu.com/community/PostInstallationEncryption06:50
diverdudenbags: and is it incremental backup? I mean, does it only backup changed files?06:50
MoonlightningMechdave: I can't back anything up because /I can't access it!/06:51
MoonlightningThat's why I'm trying to //recover// it. >.<06:51
nbagsdiverdude: yes06:51
McFlyMoonlightning, encfs -S /SourcePath/encryptedFolder /TargetPath/DecryptedFolder06:51
MechdaveMoonlightning, because it is "hidden" by the system?06:51
nbagsdiverdude: its a pretty smart app06:51
MoonlightningMcFly: no such program as `encfs`06:51
nbagsdiverdude: the only problem is that its java so its a bit resource-hungry06:51
MoonlightningMechdave: you already linked that, and I already said it wasn't helpful.06:51
MoonlightningMechdave: I'm logged in via `ssh` right now. I prefer CLIs on Linux systems.06:52
diverdudenbags: oh well...thats ok....i can just ask it to run during nighthours06:52
MoonlightningMechdave: it can't be simply /hidden/ with `chflags hidden` or by sticking a dot in front of a filename; I'd still see it.06:53
cristian_cAn other question06:53
nbagsdiverdude: not sure. by default it runs every 15 minutes or so06:54
diverdudenbags: hmmm that really sux06:54
MoonlightningAnd everything is not accessible in the normal way; `zsh` is running with default preferences, so my .zshrc wasn't accessible…06:54
McFlySearching a VPN-IPsec Client GUI for lucid 10.04. suggestions?06:54
nbagsdiverdude: its pretty configurable. i think its a good thing. you pretty much dont have to think about it. just install it and it works06:54
MechdaveMoonlightning, How about this --> http://www.ubuntugeek.com/recover-your-encrypted-private-directory-using-ecryptfs-recover-private.html06:54
diverdudenbags: but if it runs every minute its not good. I only need once a day06:55
MoonlightningMechdave: I don't have a live disc…06:55
cristian_cI'm using lostirc and I don't know how can I change the quit message. I've found, in the lostirc Home hidden folder, a file called events.conf who contains even the lines: quit = 15-- 00%116 has quit 15(09%215)  quit2 = 15-- 00%116 has quit.    But I don't think it is the right file. What can i do to solve this problem?06:56
cristian_cany ideas?06:56
MechdaveMoonlightning, can you reboot your machine in to recovery. That is do you have physical access to the machine in question?06:58
MoonlightningUgh. It might just be faster to recreate everything…06:58
MoonlightningYes; it's sitting right here.06:58
MechdaveMoonlightning, Do you remember your password for your encryption?06:59
MoonlightningMechdave: it's just my login password, right?06:59
Moonlightning(Argh, weren't you guys here when I bucked up the encryption just a few minutes ago?? >.< )06:59
MechdaveMoonlightning, yes but I was elsewhere07:00

Guddu--- Treaver said "I told you he needed the .deb"08:46
hipitihopActionParsnip, but probably the easiest, is setup ssh etc and go from there. Will the cli adduser make the use member of standard groups or will I have to find out what those are and add to groups mannually08:47
McFlyGuddu, hobe the .deb is easy to config08:47
ActionParsniphipitihop: yes, you can then add the user to admin / sudo if the user needs admin powers08:47
Symmetriahehe ActionParsnip my pc is a little... overkill :)08:47
hipitihopActionParsnip, thanks ... final question, what is the correct package for basic ssh server08:47
SymmetriaI had some spare cash and went and blew about 5 thousand dollars building it haha08:48
ActionParsniphipitihop: openssh-server08:48
ActionParsniphipitihop: it will also install an SFTP server too, so you can securely send and recieve files from the pc08:48
ActionParsniphipitihop: if the user is behind a router, you will need to port forward so the traffic is accepted08:49
ActionParsnipSymmetria: I have low requirements, so I have old gear08:49

Azzle-Dazzleeverything just feels so different than what im used to (windows) so im slowly adjusting to it :)09:41
ne0nActionParsnip: can you explain your question please, i'm not following09:41
ActionParsnipne0n: what text is on the screen, its not technical in any way09:43
ne0nCurrently there is no text on screen, except irc client...09:43
ne0nI'm in one of the "previous versions of linux", with visual interface09:44
bekksne0n: That just means you have booted a previous kernel version, not any previous visual interface.09:45
Azzle-Dazzleok, so now i can stop worrying about ram and stuff, Can someone explain how to add online radio stations to beatbox ? ive searched all morning but cant find anything09:45
ne0nWhen i start the problematic version of Ubuntu(updated one) it asks for username and after that - a password09:46
bekksne0n: Thats your username and the password for that user. You set that up while installing ubuntu.09:47
ne0nbekks: exactly, and this previous kernel has visual interface09:47
histone0n: it's the same visual interface it's just using an older kernel09:47
ne0nIt is the same visual interface but now i'm using older kernel to ask for help09:48
bekksne0n: A kernel never has a visual interface. All thats happening, is, that you have a valid kernel module for that previous kernel version, so your visual interface actually can start.09:48
ne0nSince newer kernel won't start visual interface09:48
histone0n: how did you install your nvidia drivers?09:48
bekksKernel never start a visual interface.09:48
bekksne0n: Install a graphics driver for your current kernel (not one of the previous versions) and you#ll be fine.09:49
histone0n: example did you use the additional hardware application or did you download and install them from nvidia?09:49
ne0nI think that's the problem -09:49
ne0nGraphics driver is the problem imo09:49
histone0n: If you installed the driver from nvidia.com you need to rebuild the kernel module everytime the kernel updates09:49
=== Eyes|Infinite is now known as EyesIsMine
ne0nI used "additional drivers" from system settings inside Ubuntu09:50
ne0nSince i was having problems with nVidia's drivers09:51
histone0n: well if you used additional drivers it should have pulled the appropriate updated driver with the new kernel. So I'm assuming something went terribly wrong and you were actually using the nVidia drivers. Can you pastebin the output of dpkg -l | grpe nvidia09:52
histone0n: sorry type dpkg -l | grep nvidia09:52

Jonny1I have two distros installed but update-grub doesnt find the other one - any idea?10:25
Dr_Willisadd a custome grub entry for the 'other one'10:26
Dr_Williswhat one is missing?10:27
MonkeyDustMcFly  https://help.ubuntu.com/community/IPSecHowTo10:27
tenXMonkeyDust: he's lookin for a gui10:29
gogetagui for what10:29
tenXgogeta: to configure and connect i guess?10:29
gogetatenX: tp?10:30
tenXgogeta: ipsec10:30
jvns_contribute10:30
Jonny1Dr_Willis: The other distro is ubuntustudio. I installed studio after desktop. Studios grub has both distros and windows. Now I want to go back to using desktop and use desktops grub in case I delete the studio partition10:30
gogetatenX: the firewall gui?10:30
tenXgogeta: dunno :)10:30
tenXgogeta: more the ipsec config itself i guess10:31
tenXopenswan or whatever10:31
tenXracoon10:31
Dr_WillisJonny1:  the disrto that last had 'sudo update-grub' will be controlling the boot record.  You need to either chroot into the other. or set up a custome grub entry to boot the other. (you could look at the others grub.cfg and copy/paste the stanza to boot it into your  /etc/grub.d/40_custom10:31
Dr_Willisonce you get the other install booted. or chrooted.. rerun update-gruvb10:32
Dr_Willisonce you get the other install booted. or chrooted.. rerun update-grub10:32
gogetaDr_Willis: doesent the grub live cd do all that10:32
Dr_Willislive cd uses syslinux.10:32
tenXgogeta: not an easy task ;)10:32
Dr_Willisbut it MAY have an entry to boot the 'first' hard drive.. but that may just load the grub from the studio install10:32
Dr_Willisim suprised Ubuntu Studio is not seeing both.10:33
gogetaDr_Willis: guess add the line to d.40 and update-grub10:33
gogetaDr_Willis: that would be the quick way10:34
tenXMcFly: what do you need the gui for?10:34
chirag_d_gr8if i use dedice my power management and core temperature?ated gpu, will it improv10:34
Dr_Willisgogeta:  i wonder if reruning update-grub on the studio install may find the other install.. (unless of course somehow the other install got erased)10:34
chirag_d_gr8dedicated*10:34
chirag_d_gr8*if i use dedicated gpu, will it imrove my power management?*10:35
gogetaDr_Willis: something tells me it did. not seeing another ubuntu install is pretty rare10:35
gogetachirag_d_gr8: short answer is no dedcated use more power then the onbord shared10:36
WarOfTheNerddepends on the GPU chirag_d_gr810:36

ActionParsnipor just don't buy dual gpu nonesense10:39
gogetachirag_d_gr8: but if its power saving you whant keep the intel10:39
Jonny1Dr_Willis: I should explain what I have done. First I installed ubuntu 12.04 desktop edition and selected the option to install it alongside windows (repartitioned). Then I installed ubuntu studio 12.04 so the system triple boots. The grub config in ubuntu studio works fine - it has all 3 OSs in its menu.10:39

=== gartral|Away is now known as gartral
ActionParsnipgogeta: intel is enough for most laptop needs10:40
gogetachirag_d_gr8: you should be able to disable the onbord gpu via bios then ubuntu will use the ati10:41
Dr_WillisJonny1:  yes... rerunning Update-grub on the Studio nstall MAY find the ubuntu install.. OR add a custome entry on the studio installs /etc/grub.d/40_custom to specifically RUN the ubuntu install.. then rerun update-grub10:41
Jonny1Dr_Willis: Now I have booted ubuntu 12.04 desktop edition from ubuntu studios grub and I have run update-grub from ubuntu desktop edition (which I am running now). Update-grub only picked up the desktop edition kernels and windows. It didn't pick up the real time kernel for ubuntu studio.10:41
chirag_d_gr8gogeta: I tried that before but there is no option to disable a gpu in my bios10:41
gogetachirag_d_gr8: unless your running on the battery i would see no reasion to use the intel10:41
Dr_WillisJonny1:   the 'entry' for the ubuntu install could be gotten from the ubuntu instllls  boot/grub.cfg file. you would just need one entry cut/pasted into your  40_custome file10:42
tenXchirag_d_gr8: nvidia?10:42
Dr_Willisoops its in boot/grub/grub.cfg ;)10:42
Jonny1Dr_Willis: Ubuntu Studios grub already has all the kernels. Thats not the problem. Next I ran grub-install from my ubuntu desktop edition (currently running) so now the grub config on my mbr is the one from ubuntu dekstop edition. When I reboot I am pretty certain I will get a menu that includes ubuntu desktop edition and windows but not ubuntu studio.10:43
gogetachirag_d_gr8: have you looked in your monoter settings with a dual gpu you should be able to switch10:43
gogetachirag_d_gr8: i heard of this issue before and i think it took a bunch of configs and scripts to get ubuntu to swotch10:44
excalibrhello. anyone uses shutter screen capturer here? is the crop tool not working for you too in the latest build from ppa?10:44
Jonny1Dr_Willis: I'm a bit confused as to why update-grub has not picked up the other kernel. Obviously I can go back to using ubuntu studios grub sinnce that includes everything but that seems like an unnecessary hack when it should be possible for update-grub to do the job for me. Plus I want to understand more of what is going on so I dont really want to take the easy path (but which to me seems to be an incorrect path)10:44
Dr_Willisupdate-grub runs the os-prober script to see all the other distros.. it dosent like/see the Ubuntu studio kernel perhaps.. OR perhaps its adding it to the grub menus under 'ubuntu' and you are not noticeing it.10:45
Dr_WillisI dont see much point in Ubuntu-studio these days.10:45
Dr_Willishttp://askubuntu.com/questions/144648/grub-doesnt-show-both-ubuntu-installations10:46

gogetachirag_d_gr8: for power saveing10:50
ActionParsnipchirag_d_gr8: add that in /etc/rc.local  above the evit 0 line, and it will run at boot10:50
Dr_Willisthat exact command isent needed in rc.local (a variant of it would do) but it should work as written above also I belive. ;010:51

timhildredhey gang, I just upgrade from 10.04 to 12.04.1, and on the reboot, it says it can't intialize X (something with the colourd group) and also that the "/" disk is not ready or present11:24
timhildredcan anyone help me get bootable?11:24
ActionParsniptimhildred: do you use proprietary video drivers?11:24
chirag_d_gr8gogeta: is there any condition that i can use in scripting such that it returns what i am using and toggle accordingle?11:24
timhildrednope ActionParsnip11:24
gogetachirag_d_gr8: yep run as termnal file enter pass and it runs11:24
gogetachirag_d_gr8: thers more complex scripting to make it a simple click11:25
tenXkoud: yeah either the guide or the openvpn package missing the openssl.cnf11:25
gogetachirag_d_gr8: or even 1 script for on off you can look that up laer heh11:26
gogetalater11:26
lotuspsychjein wich log can i find mouse pointer problems?11:26
chirag_d_gr8gogeta: hmm...maybe two script file named on and off is better than searching and scripting11:27
violinapprenlotuspsychje: perhaps in /var/log/Xorg.0.log11:27
gogetachirag_d_gr8: thats the easy way just make shure they both have sudo and run as termnel so you can enter the pass11:27
koudtenX: anyways thanks for the help :) will probably move to another os for my openvpn instead11:28
timhildredActionParsnip, the weird thing is, even though it says that "/" is not present or ready, if i press M to maually look around, "/" is mounted, but read only11:28
tenXkoud: why?11:28
=== Kitar|st_ is now known as Kitar|st
gogetachirag_d_gr8: its a cmmon issue i whont be shocked if you can find a premade script11:28
ActionParsniptimhildred: have you tried booting to liveCD and fsck the partition, make sure it's ok11:29
timhildredits a netbook, with no cd. when i ran fsck from that manual shell, it said it was fine11:30
timhildredActionParsnip,11:30

cookburnI'am have a hard Problem whit my Wlan on a Dell Latitude 820 whit Ubuntu 12.04 is not going who can help on this Problem ?11:31
oskar-timhildred:  check it from a live cd while unmounted and use the force option. i suggest to also check the fstab content, if every automatically mounted device is really present11:32
timhildredActionParsnip, looks like other people had this problem, there was a thread in the forums that got marked "solved" even though the solution was just nuke and pave your OS, which isn't cool. oskar- i'm doing it now, i did look at the fstab content, and blkid, and its all there11:32
koudtenX: well overall it seemed likkvme too much work to get this working, I will probably continue using ubuntu as host os but then add other virtual servers using virtualbox/kvm with pfsense or some other solution that has it set up in a easy way11:33
ActionParsniptimhildred: tbh I've never upgraded. I always clean install. Much eaier imho11:33
timhildredoskar-, ActionParsnip, the fsck was fast, and finished with "Pass 5: Checking group summary information11:34

timhildreddoes that look alright?11:34

oskar-timhildred:  yes, but please don't paste multiple lines here ;)11:34
violinapprencookburn: open the dash (top left button) and search for "driver".. then click on Additional Drivers .. do you see an entry for your wireless card?11:36
chirag_d_gr8 A general linux query. When i made a shell script executable which requires admin password, will that execute with a single click? i cannot execute on clicking it and shows a little red bar over it11:36
MonkeyDustchirag_d_gr8  you'll need sudo or gksudo11:37
timhildredoops, sorry oskar- . Mechdave, i was hoping that my LTS conservatism would pay off in smooth upgrades11:37
Dr_Willishmm11:37
timhildredi kind of thought that was the point of LTS11:37
violinapprenchirag_d_gr8: use gksudo instead of sudo11:37
theadminchirag_d_gr8: It likely won't execute on clicking, only via terminals. You can use gksudo to ask for password in GUIs11:37
Dr_Willisif you never use ppas or otger things it shoukd be smooth.but therrs such varity in hardware these days.11:38
theadmintimhildred: The one and *only* point of LTS is longer support.11:38
theadminMostly for enterprise, imo11:38
timhildredand enterprises will blow away their 10.04 install base to upgrade to 12.04?11:39
GirlyGirltheadmin: Arguably more stable and bug free when it has been out for sometime11:39
Dr_Williswenatill11:39
chirag_d_gr8gksudo is not working. I am using kubuntu11:39
timhildredGirlyGirl, thats the stuff11:39
timhildredlike, a bug free upgrade process ;)11:40
ActionParsnipchirag_d_gr8: then run:  kdesu kate11:40
theadminGirlyGirl: "Arguably". I never experienced much instability (nor much stability, really) in Ubuntu whatsoever. It's somewhere in the middle.11:40
theadminActionParsnip: Woah there. Unlike with "gksu" and "gksudo", "kdesu" and "kdesudo" are entirely different programs. "kdesu" uses su (and fails)11:40

oskar-timhildred:  try to find out, what may block the boot progress, e.g. try "mount -a" from the shell you get. maybe it tells you, that something else is not ready, and therefore it does not finish mounting everything "rw". for X i suggest to move away xorg configuration files, that are not provided by the packages...11:43
timhildredtheadmin, the problem is that when i boot, i get stuck at something like "/ is missing or not ready, either wait or press s to skip or m"11:43
timhildredoskar-, i haven't used xorg.conf11:44
theadmintimhildred: Uhh. Is your fstab correct?11:44

meioHello Question if I apply a patch that is meant for a driver in opensuse for the same ethernet card will it work and how do I apply patches? I have struggling for this an entire week this is my last resort11:49
violinapprencookburn: just little of it11:49
timhildredMonkeyDust, sda5 is the ubuntu partition11:49
Zentaurhi11:49
cookburnOK then i'am need more Time from my technical answer for you the i'am think going it, what you mean ?11:50
noname120hi guys11:50
gordonjcpcookburn: deutsch?11:50
Dr_Willismeio:  most patches would be for specific versions of kernel sources.11:50
gordonjcpcookburn: #ubuntu-de ?11:50
noname120I'm having problems to add the wine repository ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa11:50
noname120Every port is blocked by my ISP but the port 80 (http)11:50
ZentaurI've read that the kernel included with 12.04 has a big bug. It conumes 40% more energy than 2.611:50
Dr_Willismeio:  ubuntu and other disrtos may have their own patched kernel source trees also.11:50
violinapprencookburn: join #ubuntu-de and ask for help there, they speak german11:50
noname120So I retrieved the key from my browser using the port 80 and added it in the software manager by  sudo apt-key add ./key.txt11:50
noname120Output was "OK"11:50
ZentaurI mean 40% more of processor11:51
noname120, I try to add the repository using sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa11:51
noname120But it tries to retrieve the key from the server even if I already added the key with apt-key add11:51
MonkeyDusttimhildred  and mount|grep ^/dev | pastebinit ?11:51
meioI have no problems in reinstalling I already reinstalled 11.10 12.04 and 12.04.1 today 2 times already11:51
Dr_WillisZentaur:  theres been known power saveing issues  depending on your hardware.  Cant say ive noticed any cpu drains however.11:51
noname120Is there a way to "enforce" the add-apt-repository to use internal keys instead of the ones on keyserver.ubuntu.com11:51
Dr_Willisbrb11:51
Guest31982Dr_Willis: could  you please help me with the boot problem?11:52
meiohere's the patch : https://build.opensuse.org/package/files?package=r8169&project=home%3AAkoellh%3AKernelmodules&rev=3237079cd1aa481b5ba90835d213b26b11:52
Zentaurthe new 3.3 kernel solved that energy saving problems. will ubuntu update 12.04 to kernel 3.3?11:52
theadminnoname120: You can add the "deb http://repo.example.org main" (or such) line manually into any file ending in .list in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/11:52
MonkeyDustZentaur  maybe 12.10, but not 12.0411:53
cookburn#join ubuntu-de11:53
Zentaurmmm but 12.10 is not lts11:53
vyrgozunqkguys i've installed gnome-panel but i can't see xchat in the tray or skype11:53
MonkeyDustcookburn  it's /join11:53
vyrgozunqki've edited with dconf everything11:54
oskar-Zentaur:  i guess, ubuntu applies patches to the used kernel, that fix severe problems. i would just give it a try11:54
vyrgozunqkeverything is whitelisted11:54
noname120theadmin: but the weirdest thing is that if I add it in the software sources manager, it works. But then, if I try to apt-get install wine1.5 it says the package doesn't exists11:54
theadminnoname120: After adding, you have to do apt-get update to download package lists.11:54
noname120of course11:54
noname120(it's automatically done by the manager anyways)11:54
Zentauroskar-,  you may be right, I don't want to downgrade or use a non lts version11:55
timhildredMonkeyDust, http://fpaste.org/obUs/11:55
oskar-Zentaur:  i suggest to try/measure it with a live cd11:55
MonkeyDusttimhildred  / is there, looks ok to me11:55
timhildredMonkeyDust, that said, i'm doing this from fedora where i've mounted the ubuntu partition, so those mount options are not the ones in the ubuntu fstab11:56
timhildredthe ubuntu fstab has UUID=ce610182-8251-43a6-b5fa-d7ca7b5970cc /               ext4    errors=remount-ro 0       111:56

OrpheonMy system started doing some very strange things recently. Every trace of external connections of any kind have disappeared, from network connections (wired) not showing up nor working, pulseaudio not starting because it can't find something, external hardware not even getting detected in Disk Utility, and the whole thing can't shut down either (perpetual black screen).

Guest31982could some one help me with efi partion please, I am trying to install ubuntu 12.04 - 64 bit on my lenovo B570 laptop and would not boot up after the installation, on searching the net I found that there is some problem with the efi partion but I did not get any solutions. Can some one help me??11:56
MonkeyDusttimhildred  so it's all there, but we need to know what ubuntu shows11:57
Guest31982I tried using the boot-repair option but did not work, may be i did something wrong.11:57
Zentauroskar-, do you mean to try 12.10 with a live cd?11:57
timhildredMonkeyDust, how do you mean?11:57
ZentaurI already have 12.04 installedd11:57

dannyhow do i make it so i get the latest experimental updates via the command line11:59
theadmindanny: Ubuntu doesn't have "unstable" or "experimental" branches.12:00
theadmindanny: You can install alpha, beta or RC releases though. Current unstable is Quantal. See #ubuntu+1 for details on that.12:00

noname120Apps should be standalone and portable12:01
noname120linux is even worse than windows on this point12:01
th__hello. how do i change ubuntu's login manager?12:01
Zentaurwell, let's try :)12:01
oskar-noname120:  if you want it the easy way (and lose control), look for other operating systems. gnu/linux will not be the solution then.12:02
theadminnoname120: It would take ages to explain it, but it's actually better this way. With Windows, you have the same libraries (for instance) installed over and over and over and over for many apps. Here you install them once, they're always there, and they're only there when you need them (that is, when something depends on them)12:02
k1l_noname120: then just use windows and be happy. but dont blame us/linux12:02
Zentauror maybe I can upgrade my kernel to 3.512:02
timhildrednoname120 may be trolling12:02

timhildredso Orpheon, what state is it in now? is it running and you're on another computer?12:04
theadminnoname120: Want to install apps offline? Makes sense. Make a mirror of all or individual packages. Use AptOnCD. There are tons of solutions.12:04
noname120I needed hours and hours to get my wireless chip working (not officially supported), now I need  to take hours to install wine (tried with the 20 .deb way but there are always dependances to satisfy :/)12:04
OrpheonI have a tripleboot12:04
oskar-Orpheon:  we need technical details, error messages. what did you change compared to the last working state?12:04
k1l_noname120: "sudo apt-get install wine" done12:05
theadminnoname120: Uh. You connect to a network and use APT.12:05
Orpheoneskar-: I don't know12:05
noname120And I'll get an heavily old version12:05

yellabs-r2why does ubuntu keep the old kernels ?12:24
cfhowlettyellabs-r2: greetings12:24
jjkinasit seems like the kernel needs be told to ignore my apu graphics and just use my 667012:24
ActionParsnipyellabs-r2: so if the newer one goes funny, you can boot back to the old one12:24
theadminyellabs-r2: In case the newer kernel doesn't work out for you, you can boot to an older one.12:24
MonkeyDustyellabs-r2  in case something goes wrong with the newest12:24
_coder_are you understand my question?12:24

user82Myke974_ i do not completely understand your trouble here but does this work? http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=187081713:56
nbagsyeah i have preload already. nautilus used to be open all the time cause it managed the icons on the desktop. but that changed at some point13:56
deadmundnbags: that changed with the switch from gnome to unity.  preload is probably making nautilus faster (if you open it a lot) but it's probably not notice-able to the naked eye.13:56

krababbel:) Also I just did a test install, using lightdm, and i3-wm and urxvt-unicode. The default bright background in uvxrt wasn't there. Now I reinstalled and chose my usual xdm instead of lightdm, and the colours were correct. Why would that be? Also in Irssi, when I pressed ALT+NUMBER under lightdm, it wrote a three in exponent instead of switching windows. Again, my last install with XDM does this correctly and switches windows inste14:08

Achnazoori've this laptop with a busted graphics card and i'm trying to set it up as a headless _graphic based_ server; now, i know I can do this with windows remote desktop, as it uses a dummy graphics driver for remote desktops - can I do something similar with ubuntu? (i.e. setup a remotely accesible x server that bypasses the laptop's graphics card)14:15
somanbekks: I want to compile gcc 4.7.114:15
bekksAchnazoor: What do you mean by "graphic based" server?14:15
bekksAchnazoor: You dont need an running X server on a server to run X apps from it.14:16
Achnazoori mean a window system. as opposed to a terminal system.14:16
bekkssoman: Why do you need gcc 4.7.1?14:16
bekksAchnazoor: You dont need a running window system on a server to run graphical applications from that server.14:16

Achnazoori'm just looking to set it up as a media server/torrent machine. (at this point it's just sitting here gathering dust like an ugly paperweight, so...)14:18
bekksAchnazoor: For doing so, you dont need a window system on that server.14:18
somanI meant with C++1114:19

roastedI was just about to ask the channel about INCLUDE lists when I thought your name rang a bell. :P15:31
roastedI forget what I did with exclude lists to make it work, but with include lists, it's not flying. My command is here - rsync -az --delete --progress --include-from=/usr/local/bin/syncexternallisttest.txt /media/Xternal/15:31
roastedI don't like the way it ends with /media/Xternal, because I feel like it probably thinks the destination is the source, since there's only 1 item listed.15:32
roastedperhaps it needs to be more like rsync -az --delete --progress /home/jason --include-from=/usr/local/bin/syncexternallisttest.txt /media/Xternal???15:32
roastedsource, include-from, dest15:32
robertgsthey there.15:33
jribroasted: what is it doing currently?  Just ignoring your include patterns and copying everything?15:34
roastedjrib, it just comes back with speedup 0, which is what makes me think rsync assumes the dest is the source15:34
roastedjrib, it sees the data in the source, oh hey you're good, speedup 015:34
=== nbags is now known as nicelyToasted
roastedjrib, when in actuality  my external hdd is completely empty... if it recognized the external as the dest, I'd be golden. So I think rsync is working, I think I just goofed the syntax.15:35

riz0nThis server has been up and operational since 2008 and has taken several LTS upgrades. This is the first that has crashed.18:29

maheanuuLooks like I got kicked, right after I posted my terminal information, we are having real problems here in Tahiti at present..  Internet service is at a super low reason unknown18:30
ThinkT510riz0n: try removing it and then sudo apt-get install -f18:31
ThinkT510riz0n: you'll probably want to sudo apt-get update before the install -f18:32
maheanuuWhen I use "unace" from the terminal, shouldn't I have to put a path to the .ace file I am trying to open?18:33
FiSHNUGGETnm - was another command with an error.  That totally worked.  Thanks guys!18:33
Psi-Jackmaheanuu: Bleh. ACE compression is the worst I've ever seen.18:33
riz0nThinkT510: thanks, even after doing an update, and then doing install -f, it still says its unable to correct dependencies.18:34
trismmaheanuu: looking at your pastebin, you may just need to quote the filename18:34

Psi-Jackmaheanuu: Piracy is not allowed on Freenode. Even books transmitted digitally that are copyrighted and required to be purchased is piracy.18:37
ThinkT510riz0n: normally dependency issues are caused by software outside the official repos or purposefully holding back (pinning) packages, i can't think what else could be at fault18:37

Psi-Jackmaheanuu: Yeah, if you want to claim that. It's kinda common sense. Businesses will use widely popular formats to distribute stuff. That wide format would be ZIP, but primarily most ebook companies will just distribute the book in the available eBook formats they offer, PDF, Kindle, etc.. Some of which even have their own native compression, like Microsoft's Reader format.18:42

Migi32hey everyone, if I do sudo /proc/cpuinfo it says "sudo: /proc/cpuinfo: command not found". The /proc/cpuinfo file is definitely there. Any ideas?18:43
MonkeyDustmatts45acp  for a start, type sudo fdisk -l|pastebinit and paste the url here18:43
riz0nshould I change my sources.list from precise to lucid (Since its still technically running lucid)18:43
spanthergot my Intel DB75EN mainboard now with i5 3570k (Intel HD4000 graphics). Running fine! :-) Open Source here I come x)18:43
MonkeyDustmatts45acp  use pastebin and keep it in the channel please18:44
ThinkT510riz0n: if you are running lucid then only lucid should be there18:44
quimonizMigi32, what you re doin there is stupid, you essentially tell it: Run the next command with super user rights (sudo), and then you have a file there, which is not an executable... you probably want to display it with sudo cat /path/to/file18:45
riz0nThinkT510: It is running lucid (10.04) I guess it changed the file on its own trying to go to 12.04.18:45

Migi32quimoniz: oh, you're right. I had no idea why I thought it was an executable.18:47
bekksNo sudo needed, every user can read that file.18:47
quimonizwell I think 'less /proc/cpuinfo' will be the best18:47
MonkeyDustmatts45acp  keep it in the channel, please18:48
Migi32didn't it use to be an executable that outputs your cpu info? I could've sworn it was. Maybe I'm confusing it with another command18:48
bekksquimoniz: I dont think so :)18:48
quimonizbekks, how would it not be the best, if you just were to want to see it?18:48
bekksquimoniz: Besides the cpu id, the output for all cores will be identically.18:48

MonkeyDustmatts45acp  then type sudo fdisk -l|pastebinit18:51
Migi32quimoniz: indeed. But so is /proc/uptime and that returns something else every time you read it. These /proc/ things are definitely not ordinary files are they? What are they?18:51
matts45acpi did and it said install18:51
riz0nThinkT510: When I tried to do the do-upgrade-install (or whatever the command is) it got part of the way through installation and then failed.18:51

matts45acpcan i use that19:06

quimonizmatts45acp, I would use /dev/sda519:07
matts45acpive had it on one of them before19:07
islandmonkeyviju: Perhaps try Google Chrome and not Chromium?19:07
quimonizmatts45acp, allbeit the data on it would get lost, so you know19:07
vijuWeThePeople, apt-get autoremove , is that all? no need to specify package name?19:07
matts45acpi just dont remember19:08
WeThePeopleviji, lol thereis always a need to specify a package name19:08
matts45acpso your saying 5 is the only other option correct19:08
WeThePeopleviju,, above19:08
quimonizmatts45acp, you might want to get the data backuped from /dev/sda5 before formatting it.19:08
matts45acpi care nothing about the data in sda 519:09
quimonizmatts45acp, incorrect, there are many options, but each of them includes, that you use some partition on the first harddrive (/dev/sda)19:09

matts45acpwhat i need to back it up for19:10

quimonizmatts45acp, no, I said, there are many choices, /dev/sda2 works, /dev/sda5 works, but you may as well just delete all partitions or just delete some of the partitions, to make space for new partitions19:12
WeThePeopleviju, purge command deletes all old files, and autoremove deletes the whole program19:12

quimonizmatts45acp, within the standard Ubuntu graphical installer you will be presented with the choices, you may choose to format /dev/sda2 or /dev/sda5, as you like, but you may as well wipe all the partitions (thereby losing all the data on all the partitions), and create a new partition order "partition table"19:14

WeThePeopleyeah just read up, idk about the sshfs, dont know why though19:26
dmp450WeThePeople, i tried that and when I do ls -l on it it still says my user has permissions drwx------19:26
vijuWeThePeople, I think he is a troll19:26
Jarrydx26Psi-jack, thats a common problem , I suggest firefox , personally chrome is too light for me19:27
WeThePeopledmp450, use gksudo nautilus so you have a gui to work with19:27
matts45acpok its saying i have a mounted partiotion19:27
Psi-JackJarrydx26: Ever since I started using Chrome and started getting away from Firefox, I've been very much appreciating it, Especially for it's features like synchronizing bookmarks, extensions, etc accross multiple instances.19:27
matts45acphow do i unmount the partition19:28
TheLordOfTimematts45acp:  sudo umount /path/to/partition19:28
TheLordOfTimei think19:28
WeThePeopledmp450, set the permission by right clicking the file19:28
WeThePeopleviju, oh well19:28
matts45acpi dunno the path to it19:28
mudanis there a  channel for ubuntu/linux tablet discussion?19:28
quimonizmatts45acp, do umount /dev/sda519:28
matts45acpi didnt mount 519:29
quimonizerr19:29
quimonizmatts45acp, do umount /dev/sda219:29
Mysterytraincheck fstab19:29
matts45acpit was 2 yall said mount19:29
Jarrydx26Good for you psi-jack , hope your problem gets solved19:29
matts45acpi did that and it did nothing and said nothing in terminal19:30
quimonizhuh19:30
matts45acpi type that and it just went down a line19:31
quimoniztried 'sudo umount /dev/sda2'   ?19:31
matts45acpsaid nothing19:31
matts45acpyes i did sudo19:31
quimonizbesides matts45acp you may just as well forcefully reboot by typing 'sudo shutdown -r now'19:31
Psi-JackJarrydx26: Well, so far, I've gone the route of completely purging the chrome package and reinstalling again.19:31
dmp450WeThePeople, tried, still not working :/19:31
quimonizmatts45acp, or you may do 'sudo telinit 6'19:31
quimonizI think it worked..19:31
dthackertrying to get SSLeay perl module installed.  What is the open ssl package name that will give me openssl/ssl.h?19:31
WeThePeopledmp450, maybe i miss-understood what is it that you want to do19:31
matts45acpwhats is telinit 619:32
dmp450WeThePeople, i am trying to mount a drive19:32
bekksAnd oldschool command to change into runlevel 6, which is merely obsolete since Upstart.19:32
bekksmatts45acp: ^^19:32
quimonizmatts45acp, it tells the program 'init' to switch its internal status to 6, which means, that it shall reboot the computer as fast as possible19:32
dmp450I am using sshfs -o allow_other root@server:/mnt/usr /media/mountpoint19:32
matts45acpwill it unmount then19:33
dmp450if I type sudo, it works fine. I shouldn't have to sudo to do this though19:33
matts45acpthe drive19:33
quimonizmatts45acp, yes19:33
WeThePeopledmp450, idk much about the ssh stuff19:33
Psi-Jackdmp450: Actually, you do.19:33
Psi-Jackdmp450: Because you want allow_other, it has to have root privs to allow that.19:33
TheLordOfTimedmp450:  you do, because you are technically "mounting" the sshfs at the other server :/19:33
TheLordOfTimeoh wait, nevermind19:33
TheLordOfTimedidnt see allow_other19:33
Psi-Jackfuse us all userspace mounting tools.19:34
dmp450Psi-Jack, I enabled it in my /etc/fuse.conf though19:34
Psi-JackTo go beyond just a singular user, you, yourself, need escelated privileges.19:34
=== scott_ is now known as Guest16248
dmp450Psi-Jack, are you familiar with autofs?19:36
Psi-JackYes I am.19:36
dmp450am i able to use autofs to automount this?19:37
WeThePeopledmp450, if you dont want to sudo use 'sudo -i' for a root terminal19:37
Psi-Jackdmp450: Technically, you should be able to, yes.19:37
dmp450or will that ask me for sudo everytime?19:37
Psi-Jackdmp450: autofs runs as root.19:37
dmp450gotcha19:37
Psi-JackSo, it will obviously not ask for sudo.19:37
quimonizhave a productive time ubuntu-ing guys and gals19:37
dmp450thanks :)19:37
Psi-Jackdmp450: I will also suggest this.. sshfs is not something you should rely on, at all.19:37
dmp450Psi-Jack, why?19:38
=== Kitar|st_ is now known as Kitar|st
Psi-Jackdmp450: Because it is slow, it doesn't follow POSIX permissions because it's not technically a filesystem, and it doesn't know about both endpoint's user/permissions.19:38
dmp450Psi-Jack, what would you suggest? I have a media server and want to mount that19:39
og01hi today I did do-dist-upgrade, and now for the life of me I cant get audio out over hdmi on my NVIDIA card for my mediacenter19:39
Psi-Jackdmp450: NFS19:39
dmp450Psi-Jack, i've never used that :P19:40
Psi-Jackdmp450: It's easier than fuse.19:40
WeThePeoplepsi-jack, is that in the repos19:40
Psi-JackWeThePeople: Umm. OF COURSE.19:40
WeThePeoplelol19:40
dmp450Psi-Jack, how do I set that up then?19:40
Psi-Jackinstall nfs-kernel-server19:41
Psi-JackActually: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SettingUpNFSHowTo19:41

Psi-JackApparently purging and re-installing Google Chrome /seems/ to have resolved my problem, so far.19:48

Psi-Jackdmp450: From the client, do "showmount --exports nfsserver"20:04
Psi-Jackmatts45acp: I've already told you.20:04
WeThePeoplematts45acp, if this is dual boot choose ext3 or 420:04

WeThePeoplematts45acp, choose ext320:05
matts45acpok 3 then20:05
Psi-Jackdmp450: Looks like your nfs server isn't running. On the server side restart it: /etc/init.d/nfs-kernel-server restart20:05
matts45acpbut whats the diff in the 3 and 420:05
Psi-Jackext4 is newer and better.20:06
matts45acpwell why would i chose 3 if 4 is better20:06
