lidarLunar_Lander: "alerts" like that are mostly bs the ones you need to worry about are vulnerabiltys that allow remote access for instance a sshd exploit00:32
Lunar_Landercan that happen behind a router btw?00:32

zachooooHey, I just did a clean install of Ubuntu version 12.04.1 from a disc and whenever I try and start from the hard drive I installed to I get this weird graphic glitch. I can't see anything properly, however when I move my mouse it changes. Does anyone know about this/know how to fix it?00:45
wmarone__same problem on my macbook and my W50000:45
ActionParsnipwmarone__: maybe its the openwrt00:46
wmarone__I don't doubt it00:46
wmarone__but it's specifically something in the linux 3.0+ ath9k driver that causes it to tank00:46
wmarone__cause other wifi devices don't cause problems, and they work fine in windows :/00:46
zachooooDoes anybody know?00:50
ActionParsnipwmarone__: did you upgrade drom one release to another?00:50
mikszachoooo what happens if you hit the ESC key when booting up? I'm just wondering if it will then show you the text so you can see what it is getting hung up on.00:50
wmarone__no, clean install00:50
zachooooIf I hit esc it brings me to my bios...00:50

mikszachoooo k. you might need to pass a kernel boot parameter or something like nomodeset possibly to get into ubuntu and then try installing all the updates00:52
CongActionParsnip, I can't them to show.00:52
zachooooI used nomodeset when I installed ubuntu00:53

ActionParsnipCong: http://www.opensubtitles.org/en   download the srt file there00:53
mikszachoooo so when you select the kernel to boot from GRUB and press e to look at the line in the config, does it show nomodeset ?00:53
ActionParsnipCong: vlc may be able to use it00:53
zachooooI cant even view the grub00:53
nvyeah vlc supports .ass00:54
ActionParsnipzachoooo: hold shift at boot00:54
CongActionParsnip, what about the .ass files?00:54
zachooooI start it up and it flashes a purple screen and then the graphics get really screwed up00:54
ActionParsnipCong: no idea, not heard of it. Have you tried vlc?00:54

CongActionParsnip, vlc is evil.00:54
zachooooActionParsnip just tried holding shift at startup00:55
zachoooodidnt work00:55

nvyou can try windows media player. that supports .ass   :P00:55
Congwindows media player doesn't you need codec packs like cccp00:55
dr_willisgot some .asf files.. cant say ive ever seen .ass file00:55
nv.ass is a subtitle file00:56
Cong.ass files have style in them00:56
nvexternal subtitles00:56

Mahmoudzachoooo: neat00:59
Congconradin, read the wiki at cccp.00:59
zachooooI actually tried to use wubi00:59
mikszachoooo maybe download it again and when you burn it from windows check to verify it.... maybe it's a messed up download you used to install it or something... or try another distro just to see if that also has GRUB issues. like Fedora 17 for example00:59
zachoooosince I cant get it to install from disc00:59

WeThePeoplehawkal, i use broadcom to01:22
Atlantic777So you can't get IP address or what?01:22
hawkalWeThePeople,  Okay thank you01:23
Atlantic777jp_1: do you get connected to the network you want?01:23

jp_1using a dlink dir-65501:23
ompsI have configured one interface eth0 with ip 192.168.x.x, but when I am trying to ping to this IP I am being routed via internet. I am using Ubuntu 12.04 and have also configured bind9, which is also taking time. Is it happening because of the forwarders I am using in the DNS.01:24
WeThePeoplehawkal, let me know when you have trhe eth0 connected01:24
Atlantic777jp_1: can you reset the router?01:24
hawkalWeThePeople, I am connected now01:24
WeThePeoplehawkal, ok..first uninstall b43-fwcutter firmware-b43-installer01:25
jp_1cant reset then everything else will go down have about 10 other devices on the router via wireless01:25
WeThePeoplehawkal, the script will install these01:25
WeThePeoplehawkal, use synaptic01:25

hawkalWeThePeople, okay done that01:26
Z3r0n0idbroke 12.04, installed gnome-pannel and deleted unity. now on start up it start and stops the and hangs on stoppping Mount network filesystem01:26
ActionParsnipjp_1: when you set the IP can you ping the router's internal IP?01:26
ompsWeThePeople, can you please help?01:26
Atlantic777jp_1: so you aren't connected to the network even if you set static IP and address of DNS?01:26
ActionParsnipZ3r0n0id: why didn't you just leave unity installed?01:26
Atlantic777jp_1: that's bad. :D01:26
glassresistori have a radeon card on 12.04 server(with desktop installed), went to open the admin catlyst control center and put in my password and it keeps saying incorrect01:26

jp_1its a PCI dlink adapter im trying to use as well01:27
ActionParsnipZ3r0n0id: then just use the gnome-panel session at login01:27
WeThePeoplehawkal, there is more let me know when its done01:27
glassresistornot a complete newb, assuming something besides wrong pass is wrong01:27
ActionParsnipjp_1: what chip does it use?01:27
WeThePeoplehawkal, broadcom is a pain01:28
Z3r0n0idActionParsnip: cant get that far, it hangs on boot. can not even get to cli01:28
hawkalWeThePeople, Thank you it sure is a pain01:28
jp_1not too sure it did work on a d510mo with 10.04 on it01:28
ActionParsnipZ3r0n0id: hold shift at boot, select recovery mode and select root. You can now do stuff in CLI01:28
glassresistorAtlantic777: whats the catalyst command? gksudo is working with same password tough01:28
ActionParsnipZ3r0n0id: if you go for a reinstall, install Xubuntu and Unity won't be installed. Its also very similar to Gnome201:29
Z3r0n0idActionParsnip: thanks, i like gnome 2 over xubuntu01:29
Atlantic777glassresistor: gksudo is for running GUI apps as root. When you run GUI apps with sudo you can brake same permissions and stuff.01:29
ActionParsnipjp_1: run:  sudo lshw -C network     it will tell you the chip which is all you need to know, the fact it is a 'dlink' is irrelevant01:29
WeThePeopleomps, i read your inquery and idk..01:29
ActionParsnipZ3r0n0id: you could install cinammon but its not supoprted here. The xfce desktop is very similar to gnome2 and is also coded in GTK so your gnome apps will run without a hitch01:30
ompsWeThePeople, any suggestion?01:30
glassresistorAtlantic777: got it, idk why its not working from the start menu01:30
Atlantic777glassresistor: idk, I use open source drivers.01:31
pepperjackZ3r0n0id: xfce by default looks a little... vanilla but you can pretty much make it look like gnome2 if you want and the file manager and other features are more robust than they used to be01:31
share"nvidia, fuck you"01:31
ActionParsnipZ3r0n0id: you could even install xubuntu then install gnome-panel01:31
ActionParsnipshare: plase don't01:32

jagginesszachoooo, you can edit the bootline hitting 'e' if you have to with grub02:46
zachooooI cant even get to grub02:46
jagginesszachoooo, (after you do the install and do a reboot, the first time the grub menu shows, you're able to dynamically add an option)02:46

histozachoooo: DO you have a full desktop cd ?02:49
zachooooIm pretty sure its a full desktop cd.02:49
jagginesszachoooo, you said you can boot with nomodeset, so boot with the cd, and edit that file i told you.. so you can do update-grub2 (do the proper mounts)02:50
jagginesszachoooo, and do grub-install /dev/sda (if sda is the right one for you)02:50
zachooooI cant get to the actual os though, I can only get to the main install screen02:50
ubottuTo rescue a broken system, boot the alternate install CD and select "Rescue a broken system"02:51
histozachoooo: the alternatecd is not a desktop livecd. You need to boot a live cd and do what jagginess says to give that a try. Although you should still be getting a grub menu. That's why I htink something went horribly wrong installing grub.02:51
zachooooOk, time to try again!02:51

Jordan_Uev_: As a philosophy, I'd recommend assuming that all actions that you perform on a server you don't own are being monitored. At the same time as an administrator of a server, I would assume that you have at least one user smart enough to get around any monitoring you have in place if you give them shell access.03:07
jagginessev_, maybe you want to make a jailroot for your users if they dont really need it for anything special other than sharing files03:08
ev_Jordan_U: this is my own, erm, server ( im very noob, duh)03:08
ev_i just want to make sure my friends arnt trying anything funny, i will look into jail root which i hadent heard of, check the log file, and probably use screen full time.03:10
ev_and i realize that ssh is *secure* in the name ;)03:12
lotuspsychjehowto fix a corrupt square mouse pointer every cold boot on precise clean install?03:12
ev_also i keep having to reset my router...03:13
pH1rmw4r3ssh isnt that secure, if you pcap the packets you *can* dencrypt03:13
jagginessev_, i recently took a leap into webdav, it's actually has fair performance (only catch is for windows users, they have to use "netdrive" if they want to have less problems than m$ default)03:13
ev_pH1rmw4r3: pcap and packets ring bells, but i would bet that stuff is a few floors above my current level03:14
ev_jagginess: thanks, i have a few good things to look into now, just what i was looking for.03:15
jagginessev_, the purpose of ssh is to run remote applications..03:15
lotuspsychjepH1rmw4r3: i agree with you alot of ssh boxes get exploited03:15
pH1rmw4r3well theres pepole that can hack ssh03:15
mob_i just joined, but let me add, why not just change the default port #?03:16
mob_when you setup your ssh server...03:16
jagginessev_, sshd_config supports jailrooting sftp, but not a terminal.. however you can "lock" ssh users to not being able to use a terminal by using /usr/lib/sftp (i forget the sftp path-- but you can use this sftp path as the user's login and they never get a bash-like shell)03:16
lotuspsychjemob_:same thing if nmap finds your open port..03:16
ev_i have a ddns that i connect through sometimes, is that any less or more secure03:16
nvchecked for rogue servers? done a network vulnerability scan?03:17
ev_mob_: did that first thing03:17
lotuspsychjelets stick to ubuntu topic guys03:17
mob_lotuspsychje: that's true. i guess i just hope no one is scanning me, or the ids blocks the upper port # scan when it detects it on the lower ports? i donno, i just signed on here for the first time 1 minute ago :)03:17

levanderbolosaur: You can do it with Windows or Linux, but a router is just easier.08:18
randomDudebolosaur: of course it's possible08:18
nofame-nogamebolosaur: whats good and its generally too basic08:18
randomDudebolosaur: but the how of doing it is dependant on a few factors... which you've not elaborated on.08:19
bolosaur10:18:01 <levander> bolosaur: You can do it with Windows or Linux, but a router is just easier. <--- I'd say Windows is easier, because it's just a matter of using the connction sharing wizard, i.e. I'd save myself the trouble of having to go out and buy a USB-based mobile internet router.08:19
bolosaur10:18:02 <randomDude> bolosaur: of course it's possible <-- Well, I'm not just wondering if it's possible, but also if it's not goign to force me to spend hours troubleshooting it to get it to work.08:19
randomDudebolosaur: are you here to troll? or get answers?08:19
Guest45403mhahe: why don't you try virtual box or something like that?08:20
bolosaurGet answers.08:20
Guest45403it's lot easier08:20
bolosaurBut I think I got it - i.e. it's too much of a hassle.08:20
randomDudebolosaur: then give us more information than emotiions08:20
bolosaurI'm not giving you emotions. You're telling me to buy a router. I'm telling you why that's not a good idea from my perspective.08:20
bolosaurSo as to eliminate that recurring suggestion.08:20
randomDudebolosaur: i didn't tell you to buy anything.08:20
bolosaurNow, what info do you want?08:20
Ginto8bolosaur: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Internet/ConnectionSharing08:20
randomDudebolosaur: what medium are you wanting to share over? wifi or ethernet?08:21
bolosaurrandomDude: ethernet.08:21
levanderbolosaur: It's not hard, it's just unless you have a reason you don't want to use a router, a router is just easier.  Routers are specifically designed to do what you want to do.  Whereas Linux boxes are more general (and more expensive).08:21
nofame-nogamelevander: what is a router for u08:21
bolosaurI'll be connecting a mobile internet modem to it via USB, and share the connection via LAN.08:21
randomDudebolosaur: and the computer sharing the connection connects to the internet through ethernet or wifi ?08:21
arulmozhi how to enable openCL for openCL based filter in gegl???08:21
levandernofame-nogame: You don't know what a router is?08:22
bolosaurrandomDude: The laptop's internet connction comes from an USB modem, and will be sharing via ethernet.08:22
nofame-nogamelevander: i have absolutely no idea08:22
Jordan_Ubolosaur: http://magazine.redhat.com/2008/10/16/video-fedora-10-connection-sharing/ (the process is the same in Ubuntu).08:22
bolosaurcool, thanks.08:23
Jordan_Ubolosaur: You're welcome.08:23
randomDudebolosaur: ok if you want to computers to access shared connection through ethernet you'll need to modify UFW08:23
bolosaurwhat's that?08:23
Jordan_UrandomDude: bolosaur: No, you will not need to modify UFW.08:23
randomDudebolosaur: it's the Uncomplicated Fire Wall08:23
nofame-nogamerandomDude: how is it uncomplicated08:24
randomDudenofame-nogame: that's its name.08:24
levanderbolosaur: oh yeah, that mobile hotspot stuff, you may have a reason to want to use a Linux box to share your internet connection...  I just use my phone as a mobile hotspot to connect my laptop to wirelessly.  But because all the mobile carriers have different pricing for the service, it's possible you're better off with a computer than a router to share internet service.08:24
nofame-nogamerandomDude: stumbled upon that wondering08:24
bolosaurlevander: I can't use hotspot sharing because a) it sucks and b) im trying to share an internet connection to my xbox, which doesnt have wifi08:25
randomDudeJordan_U: care to elaborate? network manager does not provide a gui to shar the ethernet, only wifi.08:25
Jordan_UrandomDude: Network Manager provides a GUI which allows sharing an internet connection to any available interface. I've shared to ethernet (from a 3G modem) multiple times.08:26
randomDudebolosaur: try that then. should be really easy.08:26
levanderbolosaur: have you looked into something like this: http://www.cradlepoint.com/products/machine-to-machine-routers/ctr500-mobile-broadband-travel-router08:26
randomDudebolosaur: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Internet/ConnectionSharing#GUI_Method_via_Network_Manager_.28Ubuntu_9.10_and_up.2908:27
levanderbolosaur: I think the company Zoom has a product some people like better than the Cradlepoint.  But Cradlepoint is the established name in that market.08:27
bolosaurlevander: I have looked at a couple of solutions like that, but there are a couple of typical issues with mobile internet routers08:28
bolosaurand plus, id save myself money doing it this way08:28
levanderbolosaur: Okay, I was just trying to make sure you're aware of options... But it sounds like you've already done a lot of research.08:29
bolosaurI have, but thanks a lot. :)08:29
rahul_hii can please anyone suggest me good video converter for ubuntu.08:30
inf3kt3dso wait, not to troll the convo, but...your going to use a mobile usb modem to connect to your xbox, correct?08:30
bolosaurinf3kt3d: Yeah.08:33
bolosaurI am.08:33
levanderbolosaur: Have you made sure Linux has a driver for your USB modem?  That could be a stumbling block...08:33
bolosaurlevander: It's an iPhone, so I assume it does. :)08:34
inf3kt3dto what end? i mean are you looking to download patches/hacks, play COD, or to just log into LIVE?08:34
levanderbolosaur: It's been a long time since I looked into that stuff, so I don't know, but if I were you I'd check to make sure Linux can use an internet connection over an iPhone...08:35
bolosaurUpdate the system and make purchases08:35
bolosauri just googled it and it appears to work08:35
levanderbolosaur: Well, with the guides that have been linked here for you, have these guys pretty much got you pointed in the right direction, or you need more info?08:37
=== usr is now known as Guest36553
inf3kt3dim sure it would, for that. although im sure it will take what seems like forever. watch your bandwidth over the network tho, unless your unlimited of course XD08:39
bolosaurlevander: nah i seem to be set. thanks mate.08:39
inf3kt3dgood luck!08:40
Jordan_Ubolosaur: Since the guides linked don't have good screenshots for specifically sharing to an ethernet connection. First you'll need to start nm-connection-editor (click the network-manager icon and go to "Edit Connections...") then go to the Ethernet tab and select "Edit connection" like this: http://jordanu.dyndns.org/tmp/nm-connection-editor.png which will bring up a new window, in that window go to the "IPv4 Settings" tab and ...08:40
Jordan_U... in the "Method" drop down box select "Shared to other computers" http://jordanu.dyndns.org/tmp/nm-connection-editor-shared.png and then click "Save" and you're done.08:40

ebs512is there a good algebra software for ubuntu?08:41
Jordan_Uebs512: What would this algebra software do? Do you mean software for teaching algebra or solving algebraic equasions or somthing else?08:42
diligentdinosmb not taking passwords, but i can see the shares in all forms.08:42
Damienwindigowhy isnt my intel module isnt being inserted08:42
ebs512well to help me with my homework, something that I could type in an equation and it would walk me through the steps in solving the problem08:42
bolosaurJordan_U: Wait, are you saying that I'm going to have to fiddle with a bunch of settings?08:43
bolosaurand that there's no way to automate the process?08:43
bolosaurbecause if so, i've tried doing this before08:43
bolosaurand it completely messed up my system08:43
levanderebs512: math isn't something easily summarized, i'd be surprised if anybody's written anything like that that covers anything more than some basics08:43
bolosaurthis is exactly the kind of stuff i dont want to be caught doing a whole day08:43
bolosaurubuntu sucks too much time08:44
bolosaurover the simplest things08:44
Damienwindigoebs512 do you have your book08:44
bolosaurso if its not automated, ill pass. :)08:44
Damienwindigo....are you doing your homework online?08:44
ebs512I have my book, yes, it only has answers for the odd problems08:44
ebs512no, not doing my homework online08:45
Jordan_Ubolosaur: It's not a lot of settings, it's changing exactly one setting in the ethernet settings pane saying "this interface should be used for sharing internet". And if you get something wrong you can simply create a new connection and everything will be automagic.08:45
DamienwindigoI know math is actually relatively easy08:46

joobieguys after my install of ubuntu, it comes up with an error saying "Gave up waiting for root device" .. and it drops me to a busybox prompt. It also says "ALERT! /dev/disk/by-uuid/<uuid> does nto exist". In Busybox I don't see /dev/disk/by-uuid at all? is there a reason im not seeing it? should i be? should i just change it from the uuid to id (i do see /dev/disk/by-id)08:46
trijntjessta: thanks. I'm building custom images and I wasn't sure if I was getting both architectures08:47
diligentdinojoobie, what does sudo blkid say about the drive.08:47
DamienwindigoWhy isn't my intel module being inserted08:48
diligentdinoDamienwindigo, you need to be more specific as to what your trying to do vs what is happening.08:48

FloodBot1Damienwindigo: Please don't flood; use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste; don't use Enter as punctuation.08:50
diligentdinojoobie, blkid shows you the devices on your machine by UUID. You can then take the UUID and mount by this ID08:50
diligentdinobrb 2 sec08:51
theadminDamienwindigo: Backtrack is not supported here.08:51
rahul_please suggest:good video converter/compresser for ubuntu.08:52
theadminrahul_: ffmpeg (command-line), winff (ffmpeg frontend)08:52
joobiediligentdino, grub is using root=UUID=<uuid>, how can i change it to just work from the ID? I can see the disk by ID properly in /dev/disk/by-id or via /dev/mapper08:52
diligentdinojoobie, /dev/mapper means your running in a RAID format. That's your devices08:53
theadminjoobie: You can use any valid notation that "mount" accepts. You can use root=/dev/sda1 or root=/dev/disk/by-id/whatever.08:53
diligentdinoDamienwindigo, bt isn't supported in this channel.. and just FYI. BT isn't really suppose to be installed on on a physical drive.08:53
joobiediligentdino, nod.. it is a RAID5 setup from my motherboard08:54
joobietheadmin, i see08:54
joobiewhere can i edit this btw? I am in the initramfs busybox and i can't see /boot or /etc/grub08:55
theadminjoobie: You're gonna need a livecd08:55
joobiei had a dig around for menu.1st and i can't find it08:55
theadminjoobie: also "menu.lst" is grub1, grub2 stores configs in /etc/grub.d/ and /etc/default/grub (and /boot/grub/grub.cfg, which is generated from those in /etc/grub.d and /etc/default/grub)08:55
joobietheadmin, is it the /boot partition on the RAID itself the initramfs is trying to read which points to the UUID incorrectly?08:56
joobietheadmin, i see.. which file should i be updating the UUID to ID in then?08:56
theadminjoobie: Hm... Well, I'm not really familiar with GRUB2, having spent most of my time with grub1. But look under /etc/grub.d/08:57
theadminjoobie: Again, you'll need a livecd. The initramfs busybox is not the filesystem on your HD, so you won't find that there08:57
=== mattias_ is now known as Guest60128
joobieyea im booting off unbuntu live cd now08:59
joobieit's very weird though.. that 11.14 installer decided to point to the root fs via uuid, and the initramfs doesnt create the mapping under /dev to it08:59
theadminjoobie: Yeah, it *is* odd09:00
pungi_manhow to use a file as a template and make duplicates of that file ?09:01
ptrakkcp /path/to/file /new/file09:02
pungi_mani want to make at least 100 copies of that file, ptrakk09:03
gordonjcppungi_man: use some sort of loop?09:03
gordonjcppungi_man: What exactly are you trying to do?09:03
pungi_mani making periodic table and i want to make files that contain different values09:04
pungi_manlike this09:04
joobieanyone know where you update the root= option for grub in grub2?09:05
theadminpungi_man: I'd write a script which asks the relevant info for each file and creates the file.09:05
pungi_mangordonjcp, this will be my template ... the link09:05
gordonjcppungi_man: okay, why files?  Sounds like the sort of thing a database would be ideal for09:05
pungi_mangordonjcp, it will be much confusing ..... i am school student09:06
theadminpungi_man: Actually, gordonjcp is right, use sqlite09:06
pungi_manand making a school propject09:06
theadminOh, schools.09:06
pungi_mantheadmin, yes ... 15 years09:07
theadminpungi_man: Give me a bit, I'll write you a script which solves it... Is Python fine?09:07
pungi_mani can run that09:07
gordonjcppungi_man: so what is the final goal of this?  What do you want it to do when you're done?09:07
pungi_mani will make periodic table with swings (java) and when user clicks on any button (element), it will display the data in that file09:08
gordonjcpyeah, you want a database for that09:08
pungi_mantheadmin, i have some knowledge in python09:09
nofame-nogamegordonjcp: database?09:09
theadminpungi_man: Ok, mind PM'ing me so I don't lose conversation while writing the script?09:09
gordonjcpnofame-nogame: storing all those bits of periodic table09:09
joobiehmm.. grub2 is stupid. may as well wrap  GUI around the configuration of grub, since they force you to use CLI tools and not edit CFG's directly09:09
Ben64I added a PPA in 12.04, and I can't find the software that is from the PPA. Is there anything I need to do to make it show up>09:10
pungi_mangordonjcp, no .... just how to make duplicates of the contents of the file with different file name09:10
nofame-nogamegordonjcp: a real database for that?09:10
gordonjcpnofame-nogame: yes, of course09:10
nofame-nogamegordonjcp: sql or such?09:10
gordonjcpnofame-nogame: yes09:10
nofame-nogamegordonjcp: for a periodic table09:11
pungi_mannofame-nogame, gordonjcp i can make it ... but it will be very confusing to load it up with java in the school's computer .....09:11
gordonjcpnofame-nogame: well, he wants to look up a bunch of values based on different criteria09:12
gordonjcpnofame-nogame: how would you do it?09:12
nofame-nogamepungi_man: 'm sure you can09:12
gordonjcppungi_man: what are the files going to be called? Are they going to have "proper" names, or just something like "file001.txt"09:13
pungi_mangordonjcp, correct09:13
pungi_mangordonjcp, proper names like "Hydrogen.element", "Helium.element"09:13
nofame-nogamegordonjcp: well if the information is that limited and static i wouldnt set up a dbms thats for sure09:13
pungi_mannofame-nogame, it will be more confusing to program and I have to study other subjects also09:14
pungi_manlike History and geography and english09:14
pungi_manthe subjects that i hate the most09:15
nofame-nogamepungi_man: right and such simple task doesnt demand such an approach09:16
nofame-nogamepungi_man: english or history?09:16
pungi_manall , nofame-nogame .... the subject I stated above09:16
gordonjcpnofame-nogame: why not?09:17
gordonjcpnofame-nogame: using a database makes it easy09:17
nofame-nogamegordonjcp: overkill09:17
gordonjcpnofame-nogame: in what way?09:17
gordonjcpyou've got a database right there09:17
rgenitoany reason why my cron jobs wouldn't execute? =\09:18
gordonjcploads of other stuff uses the same database engine09:18
pungi_mangordonjcp, it requires more programing than just opening files09:18
aidanjtgordonjcp: the filesystem is already a database09:18
pungi_manlot more09:18
gordonjcprgenito: because they haven't got the bash environment you think they have09:18
aidanjtand text processing is silly easy, even in C09:18
gordonjcppungi_man: you'll need a couple of hundred lines of code to do it with files09:18
nofame-nogamegordonjcp: a dbms for a periodic table info??09:18
gordonjcpand about a tenth of that to do it with a database09:18
pungi_mani am using java for my project because that in in my syllabus09:18
rgenito^-- my cron tab, and the system time09:19
pungi_mangordonjcp, no ..... it requires only 2 lines09:19
rgenitothe cron didn't run at 5:17, so i'm guessing that i have my tab row incorrect. any ideas?09:19
gordonjcprgenito: you know how cron jobs don't run in the same environment as normal users, so stuff like PATH doesn't exist?09:19
rgenitogordonjcp: my cron job isn't depending on a bash environment, is it?09:19
rgenitogordonjcp: did you look at my link?09:20
rgenitoand yes, i do know that.09:20
rgenitoi think i'm probably just missing something very obvious... probably due to my lack of sleep =\09:20

rgenitossta start the job at 2:17, and then repeat every 3 hours afterwards.09:21
vividssta: hah, exactly what i was thinking09:21
nofame-nogamegordonjcp: your periodic table software would require 8gb ram i guess09:21
sstargenito: no.  Do: 2-23/309:21
gordonjcpnofame-nogame: why?09:21
gordonjcpnofame-nogame: a database engine is tiny, maybe about 100kB memory footpriint09:22
rgenitossta ahh thanks, i didn't know if a range was necessary with /309:22
nofame-nogamegordonjcp: because of other features i cant think of09:22
sstargenito: or: 2,5,8,11,14,17,20,2309:22
gordonjcpnofame-nogame: I use a SQL database for tracking radio registrations in a piece of embedded hardware with 256MB of flash and 32MB of RAM09:23
rgenitossta earlier gordonjcp mentioned "how will it know where to find 'wall'?", does this suggest that i should always have the full path of an executable in a cron?09:23
gordonjcpnofame-nogame: and the database is just about the smallest component09:23
gordonjcprgenito: you could try that09:23
sstargenito: probably not.  Try it and see09:23
gordonjcprgenito: echo might be a built-in command09:23
gordonjcpyou might need a path, you might not09:23
nofame-nogamegordonjcp: you wont get my point09:23
rgenitossta: thanks for the "-23" advice; it works just fine now :)09:23
gordonjcpcertainly PATH is not defined09:24
gordonjcpnofame-nogame: you're right, I don't09:24

nofame-nogamegordonjcp: periodic table info - static info no changes09:25
aidanjtpungi_man: anyway, your template looks fine, a file per element isn't much text processing or coding really..  I assume you'll create a corresponding object per element?  so it's really just looping over the directory with the elements09:25

leaperAll I have is their full body biking suit09:36
joobiefirst ubiquity had issues with 3TB? which i overcome.. now grub goes and references my raid5 disk via /dev/disk/by-uuid, when the initramfs doesnt even have /dev/disk/by-uuid09:36
theadminCeleb: You can type a few first letters in the nickname and hit Tab to complete it, too. Try: thea<TAB>09:36
CelebYep, I set the protocol, right-click works well, but now the multi-touch is dead, and I'd like to try to get multi-touch back, and then get right-click as well using other ways09:36
Ben64theadmin: sorry, didn't see any questions in the scrollback09:36
theadminBen64: Was a while ago09:36
gordonjcpCeleb: okay, so do you understand the implications of the things you typed in that section?09:36
joobieOK I have another grub2 issue - hoping someone can help09:37
vividjoobie: whats your point? ubuntu isnt created for people with raid5 arrays09:37
gordonjcpvivid: yes it is ;-)09:37
aidanjtgordonjcp: no, you just do.. a compromised mysql server is just as dangerous as a read-in function loading the wrong file.. security is a problem for every application regardless of data storage methodology09:37
gordonjcpCeleb: you've created a file called "psmouse.modprobe" that contains an option that will be passed to the mouse driver when it loads09:37
vividthats why it goes all dumb down and to the easy09:38
Celebimplications - a little, I enabled a protocol, which overrode the other drivers?09:38
Celebgordon, thank you!09:38
joobieI just booted a liveCD and edited /etc/default/grub and set the option in there to not use UUID in the disk reference.. i then went through the process and did "update-grub" which has recreated the grub config referencing /dev/mapper to point to the root that way09:38
gordonjcpaidanjt: please, #ubuntu-offtopic if you want to continue this09:38
lordievaderGood morning09:38
vividjoobie: so what was wrong with using UUID? youre not used to it? we do that now because in some situations disk identifiers can change, where UUID does not09:39
joobieonly issue is, it recreated it pointing the root to /dev/mapper/isw_bhediibabe_MAIN2, but when i look at /dev/mapper from the initramfs in busybox, i only see /dev/mapper/isw_hediibabe_MAIN09:39
gordonjcpCeleb: so if you delete that file /etc/modprobe.d/psmouse.modprobe and then reload the driver with something like "rmmod psmouse && modprobe psmouse" it should go back to normal09:39
joobiesup with that?09:39
gordonjcpCeleb: if it won't let you rmmod, just reboot09:39
hackeridishi all i need help09:39
gordonjcpCeleb: do you know what "sudo su" does?09:39
vividpseudo super user?09:39
Celeb*sorry* how do i reload the driver after reboot?09:39
theadminhackeridis: Don't ask to ask, just ask.09:39
joobievivid, i'd be happy to use UUID, but the initramfs doesnt have /dev/disk/by-uuid for it to even work09:39
theadminCeleb: "modprobe something09:39
gordonjcpCeleb: like I said, "rmmod psmouse && modprobe psmouse"09:40
Celebsudo su - allows to act as root?09:40
gordonjcpso *be very careful*09:40
vividjoobie: i must be noob because i have no idea what youre talking about....that being said, all of my disks are using UUID and no issues09:40
theadminExcept uh... You normally use "sudo -i" instead of "sudo su -" and "sudo -s" instead of "sudo su"09:40
Jordan_Ujoobie: Linux's FakeRAID support doesn't support GPT. The reason you weren't seeing a /dev/disk/by-uuid/ is that the kernel isn't able to access the partition table, and thus the filesystem (when there are no entries to go in a /dev/disk/by-* the directory isn't created at all).09:40

hackeridisi have just upgraded from 11.10 to 12.04 and all of a sudden my network connection stopped working09:40
hello2006@ebs512 dr. geo09:41
Ben64hackeridis: what happens if you type "ifconfig" in a terminal?09:41
theadminJordan_U: Pardon my misunderstanding, but isn't *fake*RAID = softraid? (s)he has a hardware raid5...09:41
joobieJordan_U, ahh.. makes sense09:41
Celebcan I ask what is the difference b/w the three sudo options? and then I'll be off to fix my touchpad : ]09:41
hello2006@ebs512 Lybniz Graph Plotter09:41
gordonjcpCeleb: semantics, mainly09:41
vividwait, hardware raid actually exists?09:41
gordonjcpvivid: yes09:41
hackeridisi did try to remove the network manager and reinstall it but no luck09:41
joobieJordan_U, I have to use GPT though because it's a 3TB virtual disk09:42
joobieJordan_U, any work arounds?09:42
vividwow, i need to go back to school....again because ive never seen one !09:42
hackeridisplease how can i get the network to work again09:42
Ben64hackeridis: what happens if you type "ifconfig" in a terminal?09:42
Jordan_Utheadmin: joobie doesn't have hardware raid, if they did it would show up as a normal disk. They have FakeRAID, which is a disk controller that comes with BIOS option ROMS but doesn't actually have any dedicated RAID hardware (it's all done on the CPU).09:42
joobietheadmin, fakeraid is what a lot of vendors use on their motherboards as "raid" functionality.. it's not real hardware raid, kinda like a sudo software raid09:42
joobietheadmin, it's different from linux md software raid09:42
vividgordonjcp: see, hardware raid is a myth09:42
hackeridisi see the network cards and everything it just does not connect to anything09:42
Celebis there a keyboard shortcut to terminal in u 12?09:43
gordonjcpfakeraid is the better choice, unless you've got CERN's budget to throw at it09:43
theadminJordan_U, joobie: Oh... My bad, sorry09:43
leaperI knew a kid who stole my best friend's computer HD09:43
leaperI'm like09:43
Jordan_Uvivid: Hardware RAID does exist, it's just very expensive and not generally found on Desktop systems.09:43
theadmingordonjcp: CERN spends all it's budget on time machines, not raids [/offtopic]09:43
aidanjtif it's a Linux only system, Linux's software raid is far superior09:43
Ben64hackeridis: try setting a static ip with the network manager09:43
hackeridisi see the loopback eth0 and wifi09:43
Celebaidanjt, offtopic: i know a guy who's been at CERN this summer09:44
Jordan_Ujoobie: Use mdraid (which will require using the alternate or server install CD).09:44
vividJordan_U: yeah theres so many angles to go at that, but then id really be trolling09:44
joobieJordan_U, what are my options using fakeraid?09:44
hakongramhey guys, having problems getting sabnzbd+ to autostart on ubuntu 12.04. I did edit /etc/default/sabnzbdplus and added my username, but still nothing...any ideas?09:44
hackeridisthis is the problem i can not set anything because network manager has a problem i can open network manager but options does not work09:44
=== dogus is now known as spooky
theadminjoobie: Jordan_U is right, use the alternate CD09:45
joobieJordan_U, my issue is that i need to use the live cd to install with (using a specific ubuntu build) so i can't use mdraid..09:45
gordonjcptheadmin: http://www.gjcp.net/~gordonjcp/cern/p1040871.jpg <- one corner of the CERN disk farm09:45
hackeridisi know you are now stumped09:45
Jordan_Ujoobie: What is specific about this Ubuntu build?09:45
joobieseriously, i normally use centos / rhel and it's not so much full of dramas just for a basic install09:45
joobieJordan_U, it's a fork from 11.10 - called XMBCbuntu09:46
Jordan_Ujoobie: CENTOS and RHEL suffer from the exact same lack of support for GPT on FakeRAID. It's not a distribution specific problem.09:46
hackeridiswell i did also install an older version of network manager ben6409:46
theadminjoobie: Eh. Use the minimal CD, apt-get install xbmc gdm, you're good to go09:46
joobieXMBCbuntu only released their build based on the liveCD, no alternate cd09:46
hackeridisbut still no luck09:46
Ben64hackeridis: do you know network details for your network?09:46
hackeridisi can not even connect to my router modem09:47
joobieJordan_U, maybe, but CENTOS / RHEL allow you to use mdraid on all installation build variants09:47
joobieJordan_U, I can't comprehend why Ubuntu would exclude mdraid from their livecd installer09:47
hackeridisof course it is the standard setup for the router09:47
hackeridisi can not even connect to that through the insternet09:47
joobietheadmin, i'm using this box just for XBMC and I hear that XBMCbuntu has some very specific versioning in play on the Ubuntu fork they have.. hence why i thought i'd go down that route09:48
Ben64hackeridis: try setting the ip manually in /etc/network/interfaces09:48
hackeridisgot holdon09:48
hackeridisgot will set now09:48
CelebHm, i've found etc/.... folder - how can i gain access to change those files?09:48
aidanjtjoobie: if it's going to be running all the time, then why fakeraid?09:48
Ben64hackeridis: something like this - http://pastie.org/465004309:49
joobieJordan_U, so FakeRaid still requires some sort of special driver installed in order for the OS to access the virtual disk? I thought fakeraid just presented a virtual disk to the OS, but it was using CPU overhead to perform the RAID09:49
joobieaidanjt, just for data protection.. i have 4 x 3TB in there and want some sort of redundancy09:49
hackeridiseverything is set to dhcp09:49
hackeridisauto lo09:50
hackeridisand auto wlan209:50
hackeridisbut ethernet is not in the list09:50
aidanjtjoobie: ok, but you don't need fakeraid to get reliable and well supported RAID on Linux, Linux has its own software RAID solution09:50
Jordan_Ujoobie: The OS just sees a bunch of disks with certain meta data (contents on the disk). The bootloader sees the array as a normal disk due to the option ROM, but that's not hardware.09:50
hackeridisno site connection will try now09:51
Jordan_Ujoobie: It's almost certainly going to be easier to just install Ubuntu 12.04 (which is a long term support release, in addition to just being newer than 11.10 and thus a better choice) and get XBMC working than to try to get ubiquity (the desktop installer) to install to GPT over FakeRAID or mdraid. In addition, this channel doesn't actually support unofficial derivitives of Ubuntu.09:51
joobieJordan_U, ahh I see09:51
CelebPlease, quick question: how can i change files in the system folders?09:51
hackeridisunder iface wlan2 inet dhcp09:51
aidanjtCeleb: sudo $editor $file09:52
dilipHi I just installed the ubutnu 11.10 on my pc with dual mode with windows 7 the wifi i am using is good on windows but it is very slow on ubuntu please any help09:52
CelebThank you!09:52
joobieJordan_U, yea.. when i saw that Ubuntu has v12 released I was questioning if XBMCbuntu was the right route.. made me think that they might trail behind in terms of security09:52
Makdaamhow can I find out more about my X server touchpad driver?09:53
joobieaidanjt, long story - but in a nutshell i'm using a fork of Ubuntu known as XBMCbuntu, which is only released based on the Ubuntu Live CD.. Ubuntun Live CD doesn't support mdraid.09:53
dilipI just installed the ubutnu 11.10 on my pc with dual mode with windows 7 the wifi i am using is good on windows but it is very slow on ubuntu please any help09:54
joobieJordan_U, when you say long term support release, how long?09:54
Jordan_Ujoobie: 5 years.09:54
aidanjtjoobie: yeah, you can use mdadm to create the RAID instead, it's far more reliable and better supported by the kernel09:54
Jordan_Ujoobie: You're welcome.09:54
joobieI think i will go down the route you suggested of Ubuntu 1209:55
hackeridissorry for the wait no does not work09:55
aidanjtjoobie: you wont miss much anyway, you can still install xbmc on ubuntu and set it as a default session09:55
joobieI feel like i'm pushing shit up a hill with XBMCbuntu09:55
joobieaidanjt, yer.. just wanted to really stick with versioning that i know is well supported09:56
joobieI used to run MythTV years ago under fedora and the amount of packages that are involved to make that work is crazy, versioning was a big issue back then09:56
joobiei'm trying to avoid that as I go down this XBMC route09:57
hackeridisi can select my network but still does not connect plus have a problem the is no icon for network settings in the top right corner09:57
hackeridistell you the truth it looks to me that 11.10 was a lot better than 12.0409:58
joobieJordan_U, aidanjt, so given this is pretty much for XBMC, should i go with the Ubuntu alternate or the server?09:59
joobie.. what's really the diff between the two?09:59
aidanjtjoobie: server wont give you a graphical environment, you'll have to install that yourself.. the ubuntu-alternative disc will give you a desktop to work with10:00
hackeridisin networkmanager.conf  i have dns=dnsmasq10:00
Jordan_Ujoobie: Alternate. The difference is the packages which will be installed if you select all default options, and the packages contained in the iso itself (you can select other packages during installation, which will be downloaded from the internet).10:00
joobieahh cheers10:01
joobienot to toot another distro's horn, but rather to throw another spin on these different versions of Ubuntu10:01
joobiethe way Centos do this is they provide the one installer and have different install builds, so you select "Server" or "Minimal" or "Desktop" and it installs the packages accordingly.. Rather than have 3 seperate images10:02
joobiesounds like a cleaner way to do things if it's just a package pre-selection which is the difference between the builds10:02
ikoniait's not how it's done, so commenting on it is pointless10:03
hackeridisi have no network in ubuntu 12.04 wired and wifi has the problem10:03
aidanjtjoobie: I know, I find it's a bit of a nuisance as well, but it's not done like that so we make do10:03
hackeridiscan anyone help10:03
PowergiantHey Guys. I'm having a weird problem with my new laptop. It comes with W7, and I'm trying to dual boot ubuntu. I've shrunk a partition to make room for ubuntu, but when I boot the Live CD the installer (and Gparted) doesn't recognize the partitions. The harddisk is in ahci mode. Any ideas ?   http://i.imgur.com/oGnkx.png &  http://i.imgur.com/LiLs0.png10:04
hackeridisis there any way i can revert back to ubuntu 11.10 from 12.0410:05
joobiehttp://www.ubuntu.com/download/desktop/alternative-downloads is that the alternate download? The DVD option?10:05
ikoniahackeridis: no10:05
ikoniajoobie: that is not the DVD10:05
aidanjthackeridis: not really, reinstalling 11.10 is the only sane way10:05
hackeridisnow that sucks10:05
ikoniajoobie: that is the ncurses based installer10:05
joobieikonia, oh.. where is the alternate image?10:05
ikoniajoobie: that is the altnerative image10:06
ikoniathe ncurses based installer is the alternative image10:06
hackeridisso please can any 1 help me fix my network problem10:06
hackeridisubuntu is useless without network10:06
joobieikonia, ahh.. so the text based installation is the one i want, which will support mdriad?10:06
diligentdino!details | hackeridis10:07
ubottuhackeridis: Please give us full details. For example: "I have a problem with ..., I'm running Ubuntu version .... When I try to do ..., I get the following output: ..., but I expected it to do ..."10:07
joobienm got it :)10:07
ikoniajoobie: the ncurses based installed is the "alternative" CD image. It will support Linux software raid - it will not support DM raid unless the device's have full linux support10:07
mhahefor some odd reason chromium isnt downloading files while FF is10:08
mhaheit starts the DL and then stay at 0.0 MB out of X MB10:09
hackeridisproblem is i can open network manager but can not open options to setup the network i have ubuntu 12.04 and when i open a browser any browser i get the message error 106 err-internet-disconnected10:09
joobiehmmm .. what would you guys do in this situation.. I have a box with 8GB that i want to primarily use XBMC on. In the future I will use MythTV and maybe Apache on it down the track. Would you go with the 32bit or 64bit, given that XBMC is the primary use and XBMC is supposedly only 32bit compiled (but does work in 64bit)10:09
hackeridisi can not use wifi or wired net work10:10
joobieI just read the speel on the download page where it say "10:10
joobie    Choose this to take full advantage of computers based on the AMD64 or EM64T architecture (e.g., Athlon64, Opteron, EM64T Xeon, Core 2). If you have a non-64-bit processor made by AMD, or if you need full support for 32-bit code, use the Intel x86 images instead." and now i'm thinking twice when i read that "if you need full support for 32-bit code" bit, thinking that 32bit might be better10:10
diligentdinohackeridis, ifconfig shows what?10:10
ikoniajoobie: ask the xmbc guys for opinions on performance/use/stability10:10
aidanjtjoobie: Ubuntu has 64bit xbmc packages10:10
joobiebut then I guess part of my RAM is not addressable if I go this route yea? or does PAE overcome this10:10
joobieaidanjt, is it supported as well as the 32bit packages?10:10
hackeridisit shows all cards wifi and ethernet and loopback10:11
ikoniajoobie: your xmbc application won't be using more than 4GB of ram, so do you really care ?10:11
joobieikonia, not for XBMC, but rather for Apache and MythTV and other future use10:11
ikoniajoobie: then re-install for apache/mythtv10:11
mhaheany idea why chrome wont download files while FF will?10:11
aidanjtjoobie: yeah official ubuntu packages, also 32bit machines are limited to 4GB of RAM, so your other 8GB would be useless without 64bit ubuntu10:11
diligentdinohackeridis, ok it shows it .. but does it show ip addresses? Can any other internet capable devices get to the internet?10:11
joobieikonia, ideally would like to avoid that :)10:11
ikoniajoobie: why ? you're compromising yourself for the sake of an 8 minute install routine10:12
joobieaidanjt, doesn't PAE overcome that?10:12
ikoniajoobie: use the right tool for the right job,10:12
aidanjtjoobie: only if the CPU supports PAE10:12
aidanjtand motherboard10:12
hackeridisno ip addresses10:12
aidanjtand PAE is slower than native 64bit addressing10:12
diligentdinohackeridis, can you ping the gateway or other machines on your network?10:12
aidanjtand ubuntu has 32bit emulation10:13
joobieI read into PAE ages ago.. and now i've somewhat forgotten it. It's essentially creating a virtual map table to address the RAM outside of the 32bit range ya?10:13
aidanjtjoobie: yeah pretty much10:13
hackeridisnetwork unreachable it says10:13
joobieso the extra lookups to the virual table are the downside as opposed to straight 64bit?10:13
ikoniajoobie: if you really don't want to instal , just install the 64bit version10:13
ikoniajoobie: you're making a problem where none exists10:13
joobieikonia, just trying to run wiht the ideal10:13
joobiebut I guess if aidanjt says that there's good XBMC 64bit support, then ill go this route10:14
ikoniajoobie: right, so 64bit CPU and 8GB of ram = 64bit ideal10:14
hackeridistry to ping the modem router but no luck10:14
diligentdinohackeridis, do you have any other machines having issues?10:14
hackeridisnetwork card and wifi card is ok but the is a problem with output connection10:14
hackeridisit is ubuntu10:15
hackeridis12.04 that has the problem10:15
diligentdinohackeridis, if it was ubuntu there would be a bug. You install has a problem10:15
joobiehackeridis, I usually disable Network Manager and configure the network manually via the config files10:15
joobiehackeridis, what's the issue you have?10:15
joobieI got 8 mins to burn whilst this ISO d/ls :P10:16
diligentdinohackeridis, have you configured the correct DNS to reach the router? . You can use the router IP address for the gateway/dns10:16
hackeridisdid that and setup the ip manually but no luck10:16
ikoniayou don't configure DNS in 12.04 as it uses dns masq10:16
ikoniaguys, look at it logically, why are you suggesting "ping" tests when his card doesn't have an IP address10:16
ikoniauntil his card has a valid IP address, there is no point looking at anything else10:17
joobiewhat does ifconfig show you?10:17
aidanjtjoobie: yeah, I can't think of any downside to 64bit really, just a whole load of upsides.. even if you run upstream 32bit xbmc 64bit ubuntu should be able to handle it10:17
joobiedoes the interface appear when you type just ifconfig?10:17
hackeridiswhen i click on wifi with in network manager i can see the network and when select it it just says connecting but never connects plus if i click on options nothing happens10:17
joobieaidanjt, cool :) Thanks10:17
joobieaidanjt, im downloading 64bit alternate now10:17
hackeridisplus the icon from the task bar for network is missing10:18

Powergiantjoobie: I only have access to the partitions via Windows at the moment, so I don't think I can't change the boot flag to bios_grub..10:31
islandmonkeyDear dear dear10:31
aidanjtPowergiant: even gdisk?10:32
joobiePowergiant, you already have that 200MB EFI partition.. just boot a liveCD and make sure it is fat32 and set the boot flag on it10:32
joobiePowergiant,  then just move all ur other partitoins back 1MB to create the bios_boot partition10:32
ReketsuSo can anyoen help me with my problem?10:32
joobiePowergiant, try gparted live cd10:33
Reketsuanyone rather*10:33
aidanjtReketsu: we can't tell if we can help without knowing the problem10:33
joobiePowergiant, if windows can see it - im sure some linux variant will be able to10:33
Reketsui totally told u the problem..10:33
Reketsuscroll up.10:33
islandmonkeyaidanjt: It helps if you scroll up10:33
Powergiantjoobie: You think there is a difference between Ubuntu live CD, and the Gparted live cd ?10:33
aidanjtReketsu: ah right, between the flooded paste noise :P10:34
islandmonkeyReketsu: Hold on tight, there may be someone here to help10:34
Reketsui hope so.10:34
joobiehackeridis, you don't have an ip address assigned to your eth0 interface..10:34
Reketsuive never had this issue with Ubuntu 10.10:34
Reketsuuntil i decided to reinstall ubuntu 12.0410:34
Reketsuso anyone who missed my problem10:35
Reketsuhere is what i said again10:35
KyraYuihow do i register a nick with freenode so i can join other channels (sorry im new to irc and fairly new to linux still)10:35
Reketsu" The problem im having is, I program MUD's and recently I upgraded to Ubuntu 12.04, Now when i compile my mud (smaug) with my GCC compiler it compiles fine but ta the VERY end of the compile it's like, usr/lib/ld: cannot find -lz"10:35
Reketsuand i've installed EVERY liblz-dev i could find.10:35
hackeridisnot even to wifi10:35
ikoniaReketsu: you don't just blindly install things.10:35
aidanjtReketsu: zlib1g-dev10:35
hackeridisifconfig setup hackeridis in pastbin10:36
ikonialook at what it wants from -lz10:36
joobiePowergiant, I don't know.. but if you can't see the partition structure from Ubuntu Live CD, that would be my next step10:36
ReketsuAid i installed that10:36
ikoniahackeridis: where ?10:36
Reketsustill not working.10:36
joobiePowergiant, or knoppix / sysrescue cd10:36
hackeridisposter "ifconfig setup hackeridis"10:36
Reketsui have zlib1g installed.10:36
Powergiantjoobie: Good point.10:36
ikoniahackeridis: you need to post the URL10:37
hackeridisand the thing is i network manager does not let me setup the network10:37
ikoniahackeridis: you need to post the URL10:37
hackeridisit will only let me see the network10:37
joobiehackeridis, just disable the network manager and use the config files for the interface direct10:38
ikoniadon't disable network manager10:38
ikoniathere is no need to disable network manager at this time10:38
Reketsusucks im not on my ubuntu partition atm so i cant even attempt to zero in on the problem.10:38
joobiethe need is to learn to use config files10:38
ikoniayou have no idea of the problem and you're telling him to disable10:38
ikoniajoobie: no, he doesn't need to learn that10:38
joobieand avoid guis / ncurses wizards10:38
ikoniajoobie: please stop talking nonsense10:39
joobieit's not nonsense.. he will remain a noob if he sticks to the GUI tools10:39
ikoniajoobie: people can use guis and wizards without issue, it's not a contest on how to be l33t10:39
ikoniait's someone trying to use a PC on a day to day basis10:39
ZaehlasUsing new server install with new isc dhcp server.    I've checked every guide, almost all are out of date because the new isc dhcp uses different locations for config files.  All my config files are good, the command runs as it should (verified it's listening on the correct interface), no errors in the log files.  I show the syslog showing that it is trying to issue ip addresses, but the systems don't get anything in response.  iptables10:40
ikoniausing a gui doesn't make you a "noob" and please don't call people that, it's not a problem or a bad thing to be a regular average user, or new to ubuntu10:40
Zaehlasis clear at the moment, no other firewalls running.10:40
joobieikonia, it's got nothing to do with being l33t.. when he types ifconfig he'll actually know how to read the output if he stops using Network Manager10:40
hackeridiswhat is the command line to dissable networkmanager10:40
vividikonia: dont get trolled10:40
ikoniajoobie: why does he need to not use network manager ?10:40
joobieikonia, he doesn't.. he can achieve the same in network manager10:40
ikoniajoobie: right, so why do this10:40
ikoniajoobie: help him fix the problem, rather than disable key services ot his machine.10:41
joobieikonia, just personal preference that the GUI limits his ability to learn10:41
ikoniajoobie: he's not looking to learn - he's looking to use his PC10:41
ikoniait was working - it's now not, fix the problem10:41
islandmonkeyhackerdis: sudo killall NetworkManager (for info at this moment, you just need to look at this argument)10:41
ikoniathis is a joke10:41
ikoniayou're telling someone to kill software with no reason10:41
ikoniawhy kill network manager ?10:42
diligentdinoId like to know why kill the nm as well?10:42
joobieikonia, back when I got my first 28.8k modem, it was a modem for china that didn't know our australian dialtones.. i was forced to learn AT commands as a result, and it gave me such a more broad depth of understanding of how the modem worked.. the network manager is much the same, it just limits the ability to learn what is happening under the hood10:42
gryapparently they're thinking it'll restart itself with probably saner behaviour10:42
ikoniajoobie: I'm not interested in your history lesson - fix the problem for the user,10:42
ikoniait won't respawn10:42
joobieikonia, it's just personal preference - i like to encourage learning under the hood.. especially for linux users10:42
vividthats not how you would kill it anyway10:42
ikoniajoobie: right - he's not asking for that10:42
ikoniajoobie: he's asking to get his network card using10:42
vividsudo stop NetworkManager is probably the preferred method10:42
islandmonkeyOr ^, since it's a service10:43
hackeridisooops to late just kill the network manager10:43
Reketsuill come back later.10:43
joobieikonia, if i was to fix his issue anyway, i have only been in the network manager once or twice in my life.. and it wasnt the Ubuntu one.. Disabling it and fixing it in the config files is much quicker for me to assist.. so, i'll keep quiet if you want the GUI fix for him10:44
vividhackeridis: you really solve nothing by removing part of the system.....would you remove core components in another operating system?10:44
ZaehlasI'll be afk a while.  if someone ever bothers to scroll up and be willing to look into my issue, that'd be great.  10-20 minutes...10:44
ikoniajoobie: right, so the answer is "I don't know how to fix or debug this, I'm sorry I can't help"10:44
joobievivid, network manager is not a core component, it's a wrapper for a core component known as networking10:44
ikonianot "let me cripple your machine"10:44
vividjoobie: and youre a troll....whats your point?10:44
joobieerr, how is disabling network manager crippling the machine?10:44
hackeridisguys the problem is ubuntu see's the cards but can not reach them to set the cards up and get them to work10:44
joobievivid, i'm not a troll.10:45
ikoniajoobie: actually, it's pretty import to ubuntu these days, with the use of things like dnsmasq for DNS resolution, the VPN solution etc.10:45
vividjoobie: how is not disabling network manager crippling the machine?10:45
islandmonkeyvivid: What evidence do you have for this guy being a troll?10:45
diligentdinook ok .. can we stop with the back and forth for this issue. Different strokes for different folks.10:45
vividuh the fact that hes clearly trolling10:45
diligentdinohackeridis,  has a problem with his network and that's what needs to be resolved.10:45
ikoniavivid: he's not trolling.10:45
ikoniadiligentdino: exactly10:45
hackeridisok stop arguing just need to solve this10:45
vividhackeridis: youll have to wait while the big guns troll it out10:45
islandmonkeyvivid: That's not evidence10:45
ikoniavivid: enough10:45
vividenough yourselves, help the guy or go to sleep10:46
diligentdinohackeridis, you have no network connectivity, you can't get an ip address and none of your other machines are having problems is this correct?10:46
hackeridisits that i am new to ubuntu and trying to get up to date then i can start to help with systems10:46
hackeridisyes correct10:47
hackeridisi am in chat with another machine and the ubuntu 12.04 network is screwed10:47
hackeridisi have also setup the wifi manually10:48
hackeridisbut still no good10:48
diligentdinohackeridis, has it ever worked? is this your first install or fresh install I should say?10:48
hackeridisthe problem was after the upgrade10:48
hackeridisand as soon as i changed the wifi card in the laptop10:49
blucalculatorG'day everyone. i've got a tp-link usb wireless adapter...thing. and the install disk is windows only. what should i do?10:49
diligentdinohackeridis, you changed hardware?10:49
aidanjt!wireless | blucalculator10:49
ubottublucalculator: Wireless documentation, including how-to guides and troubleshooting information, can be found at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WifiDocs10:49
hackeridisi was using the dell wifi card and then i removed it and install a new intel 5100 card10:49
diligentdinohackeridis, have you updated your pkgs? I remember a problem with some types of drivers having to be blacklisted to work correctly with the new drivers10:50
dos000how do i get a shell with apt-get install working when i boot on the alternate cd ?10:50
hackeridisbut dont forget that the wired connection also has the problem10:50
dos000is it even possible/supported ?10:50
diligentdinohackeridis, this sounds like a dns problem if both ifs are having the problem. ikonia said 12.04 uses dns masq which I'm unfamilure with as most of my time has been spent on bsd machines10:51
aidanjtdos000: hit alt+f2, mount the disk to /mnt, chroot /mnt /bin/bash10:51
hackeridisi was thinking the same thing10:52
diligentdinohackeridis, this isn't a fix all .. but can you run a live cd and see if the network capabilities are functioning off the live cd?10:52
hackeridisyes it does use dnsmasq i saw that in the NetworkManager.conf file10:53
hackeridisjust rebooted and it say waiting for network configuration10:53
Zaehlasok, no one seems to be able to help here.  that's ok, I guess...  but I have no time, and I have to get this fixed...  is there another method to get ahold of ubuntu specialists to get my problem fixed personally?  if I have to pay money, so be it...10:54
joobielol, love the ncurses wizard on the alternate CD to try detect the keyboard layout :)10:54
bazhangZaehlas, canonical has paid support10:54
hackeridiswill have to download the cd now because i upgraded from 11.10 to 12.0410:55
bazhangdos000, are you trying to use the alternate cd as a software source?10:55
Zaehlasbazhang, best suggest for a fast fix that doesn't require me paying for a long time?10:55
diligentdinohackeridis, Your best bet at this time is either check back in the channel a little later or start google-ing and see what you can find. I would make backups of your currently configs and start tinkering around with different solutions you find.10:55
bazhangZaehlas, fix for what, I've not been following10:55
Zaehlasisc dhcp10:55
Zaehlasgot it installed, config files good, logs good, it tries to issue addresses but my local network cant see them10:56
bazhangZaehlas, need some details10:56
hackeridisit seems the best bet is to fix dns problem10:56
Zaehlaseven with firewalls all disabled10:56
bazhangZaehlas, this is ethernet?10:56
Zaehlasbazhang what can I blast to a pstebin?   yes..  ethernet..  server has two interfaces10:56
diligentdinohackeridis, right, but it's machine specific which leads me to believe dnsmasq problems. If that's the case your better off doing what was mentioned above.10:56
hackeridisthankyou to all of you if i find the problem and solve it i will post10:57
bazhangZaehlas, does ifconfig show eth0?10:57
diligentdinohackeridis, if you resolve the problem and I'm not around can you put it into a pm for me. I'd like to see the outcome10:57
dos000bazhang: yes and no10:57
Zaehlaslocal network hardware working fine, otherwise the local systems would not be able to send the request...  gigabit switch.  prior to upgrade 2 days ago it worked fine10:57
bazhangZaehlas, if so try sudo dhclient eth010:57
dos000bazhang: if i use the livecd ... i have a full ubuntu shell with apt-get10:57
dos000bazhang: except that the actual package that i need is not part of the live cd ...10:58
bazhangdos000, previously you were try ing to use the alternate as a software source?10:58
bekksZaehlas: wrong. unless a request is logged to actually reach your server, you cant tell wether the network is working or not. :)10:58
hackeridisok diligentdino10:58
Zaehlasbazhang, hold on a moment, let me paste a couple things to ya10:58
dos000bazhang: this is what i am thinking of doing now ...10:59
bekksZaehlas: Do you use static leases?10:59
dos000bazhang: boot into livecd ...10:59
dos000bazhang: and use alternate cd as a package repository (if at all possible )10:59
aidanjt<aidanjt> dos000: hit alt+f2, mount the disk to /mnt, chroot /mnt /bin/bash11:00
dos000bazhang: i am imagining i can tell apt to point to the location of my alternate cd11:00
bekksaidanjt: Thats not sufficient.11:00
dos000aidanjt: i tried chroot ... without the bin/bash11:01
bekksaidanjt: You will have no /dev, /sys, /proc in your chroot environment. It will not work correctly.11:01
bazhangdos000, simply add the alternate cd to your software sources11:01
aidanjtbekks: why would a live cd not have /dev /sys /proc?11:01
aidanjtbekks: oh sorry, misread11:01
dos000aidanjt: bazhang: mmmm11:01
bekksaidanjt: Because INSIDE that chroot, that will not be available.11:01
bazhangaidanjt, a chroot is completely unnecessary here11:02
hackeridisjust saw the resolv.conf file and it is empty11:02
aidanjtbekks: yes I get you now11:02
hackeridisdigi you are on to something with the dns11:02
dos000so the only option is to tell apt where the alternate cd is located11:02
ikoniahackeridis: does your network card have an IP address yet ?11:02
ikoniahackeridis: right - so why are you looking at DNS11:03
bazhangdos000, add it to software sources11:03
bekkshackeridis: How did you check that?11:03
ikoniahackeridis: there is no point doing anything else, until your card has a valid IP address11:03
ikoniahackeridis: as I told you earlier - anything else is worthless until your card has a valid IP address11:03
hackeridiswent to system etc/resolv.conf11:03
ikoniaifconfig shows you your card has no ip address11:04
hackeridisopened it and it was empty11:04
ikoniayou showed me that earlier11:04
ikoniareoslv.conf is not for your IP addres11:04
FloodBot1ikonia: Please don't flood; use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste; don't use Enter as punctuation.11:04
bekkshackeridis: In /etc/resolv.conf you will not see wether your card has an IP or not.11:04
Zaehlasbazhang, sorry for delay...  here's a BUNCH of stuff: http://pastebin.com/ZC3pHGhA11:04
bekkshackeridis: As ikonia told you, just use ifconfig11:04
dos000bazhang: i just need to point /etc/apt/sources.list to the /alternate-root-dir correct ?11:04
bazhangdos000, add it to the sources.list11:05
hackeridisand here is the result http://paste.ubuntu.com/1181184/11:05
ikoniahackeridis: so no IP address as I said earlier11:05

Zaehlasbazhang, was afk a minute on the phone.   I pasted the results of several config files, my dhcp process and log of the reciept of dhcp request above.  any idea why my other systems are not getting anything?11:12
dos000bazhang: i need only one pkg chntpw ... can i just install it using dpkg if i drop the deb file on the usb of the live cd ??11:13
bazhangdos000, what about just getting it from packages.ubuntu.com11:13
dos000bazhang: the machine does not have internet access !11:14
bekkschntpw on a box booting from a livecd only? :)11:14
bazhangdos000, on a machine that does11:14
dos000bazhang: thats what i am doing now ... but i am not sure if i need other dependencies11:14
bazhangdos000, the packages site will list them11:15
dos000bazhang: libc6 and libgcrypt11(only)11:16
blucalculator@aidanjt i tried to follow the wireless documentation on that page, but the information for USB wireless is severely lacking11:16
dos000bazhang: can i expect these to be in the livecd ?11:17
L1I'm about to install ubuntu/win7 on my SSD. Which things from Ubuntu should be on my SSD, and which should be on my regular HDD? / and /home will be on my SSD (data storage on regular HDD symlink to /home). What about my swap partition? And /var? I have heard the tmp directory should be in a ramdisk. Any advice?11:18
bekksL1: Just do a regular install. And /home on a SSD is wasting space of the SSD.11:18
dos000bazhang: darn ... i might as well just copy the darn alternate cd !11:19
aidanjtblucalculator: USB is just a device connector, as long as the kernel has drivers for the device wireless works all the same11:19
MonkeyDust!partition > L111:19
ubottuL1, please see my private message11:19
Zaehlasbazhang, I've checked into paid support...  2 days before I get a response and they want an entire year of support, not one phone call...    I really need help from anyone else if they can give me an idea on how to troubleshoot this dhcp issue.  I have to be at the airport in 3 hours.  and my entire network is down, and I've been banging my head against this for two days now11:19
dos000bazhang: bekks: aidanjt: thanks a lot for your great support guys !11:19
KyraYuiim still fairly new to linux but i was wondering what is the best distribution for desktop customization?11:19
lukjad007Hi guys, I upgraded Ubuntu by clicking "upgrade ubuntu" and now at boot grub gives the error "error: no such partition"11:19
L1bekks, MonkeyDust, thanks. the partitioning wiki page doesn't mention much to do with SSDs specifically though11:20
bekksKyraYui: Which answer besides "Ubuntu" do you expect? :)11:20
t432a folder in my home dir just disappeared11:20
lukjad007I had booted to a live CD, updated Grub and then it worked...until the next reboot where it happened again.11:20
t432whats going on?11:20
cfhowlettKyraYui: are you maybe confusing desktop environments?11:20
bekkst432: We dont know with a vague description like that. :)11:20
t432well... i had a folder containing importnts docs in my home dir, after rebooting i no longer see this folder!11:21
Zaehlasis there an alternate channel that may have someone willing to look into server issues?  I can't bring up a room list.11:21
dos000i remember there was a way to tell apt-get to install from a specific root ... cant remember now11:21

t432that will be all for now folks!11:24
lukjad007So, can anyone help me with my Grub issue?11:24
dos000how can i tell which packages are inthe alternate cd ???11:25
aidanjtL1: the default partitioning will already be aligned, ext4 supports trim already so all you really need to do is add 'discard' to the root partition options in /etc/fstab11:25
L1aidanjt: Thanks11:25

gyre008what happens if there are 2 PCs on the network with the same MAC address ? Im asking because Im creating a bunch of virtual servers and have to generate random Mac addresses for them but if the newly generated Mac is the same as the one on the network what happens ?11:38
gyre008anyone idea ?11:38
=== diligentdino is now known as hfic
dos000dr_willis: how do i tell apt-get to just generate a script ?11:38
ikoniagyre008: you won't hit that problem11:38
Walthergyre008: don't make them random, sequence them or something11:38
dr_willisno idea dos000 al my pcs got network accesa11:38
gyre008ikonia, how do you know ? :)11:38
=== forester_ is now known as forestah
nalTgyre008: that won't happen11:38
grygyre008: don't random generate mac addresses; they must be unique and a things won't work otherwise11:38
dos000dr_willis: thanks dude11:39
gyre008I'm asking to understand what might happen11:39
ikoniagyre008: 52:54:00:c9:ec:94 - an example mac, what are the odds of you hitting that combination of 12 chars of alpha numerica chars11:39
ikoniagyre008: depends on your network setup and design,11:39
ikoniacould be nothing, could be the same as a duplicate IP address11:39
gyre008ikonia, small odds but not impossible11:39
ikonia(bottom line)11:39
gyre008just want to know the symptoms...11:39
ikoniagyre008: a.) impossible if you set it seqentially b.) not going to happen11:40
gyre008thats it11:40
WarOfTheNerdgyre007, things like DHCP reservation break11:40
nalTstatistical probability of two random mac addresses being identical?11:40
dr_willispcs may explode..  small oods..11:40
usr13dos000: Why can't you just hook it up to the net?11:40
rypervenchegyre008: One in 16 to the 10th power chance of it happening.11:40
WarOfTheNerdnalT, happened to me11:40
gyre008WarOfTheNerd, so the VM won't be assigned the IP11:40
WarOfTheNerdgyre008, you need to use static addressing if you have any identical MAC addresses11:40
ikoniagyre008: it depends on your network setup as I said11:40
gyre008i know the probability is extremely small but it CAN happen11:40
ikoniagyre008: however as it won't happen.....don't worry about it11:41
nalTWarOfTheNerd you broke the universe.11:41
ikoniagyre008: if you do have a problem - just ask11:41
nalTsequence them then11:41
WarOfTheNerdgyre008, it has happened to me once, identical cards by identical manufacturer11:41
hackeridisin the above i have included the ifconfig11:41
gyre008ikonia, I have a KVM hypervisor and I'm bridging VMs to it…VMs have DHCP set11:41
usr13hackeridis: sudo dhclient eth011:41
ikoniagyre008: again, don't worry about it, if you have a problem, just ask11:41
dos000whats the command line to start synaptic package manager ?11:41
gyre008ikonia, ;) i want to be prepared and not run here when i have a problem haha11:42
usr13hackeridis: Does the router have DHCP server turned on?11:42
WarOfTheNerddos000, gksudo synaptic11:42
dos000WarOfTheNerd: thanks man11:42
ikoniagyre008: you're not going to be prepared....it won't happen, don't waste time, deal with real problems when they happen11:42
hackeridisi get unable to resolve host11:42
ikoniagyre008: the guys in ##networking will be able to discuss this in more detail if you wish to learn about it11:42
gyre008yeah i will ask them11:43
usr13hackeridis: Check the cable? #If the router's DHCP server is turned on, it should have just downloaded IP info.11:43
usr13hackeridis: But you said you could ping the router?  #ping  ?11:44
gyre008also, if I start assigning VMs static IPs…what happens if I assign a VM an IP which is already on the network ? #imsuchanetworkn00b11:44
ikoniathen it will be an ip conflict11:44
ikoniaagain ##networking can help explain the rules of networking11:44
hackeridisyes i can ping the router11:45
hackeridisi also get into the router setup11:45
usr13hackeridis: sudo ifconfig eth0;route add default gw
usr13hackeridis: host av.com11:45
gyre008so basically if I'm assigning IPs I should have some sort ofIP discovery tool which will be checking IPs on that segment and if they're not available then I can use them11:45
gyre008i guess11:45
usr13hackeridis: The router is ?  Right?11:46
ikoniayou should be either a.) using dhcp  b.) managing your IP block11:46
ikonia##networking can give you lessons/tools/ideas of how to manage IP blocks if you're not confortable with it11:46
usr13hackeridis: Try the above commands, let us know.11:46
usr13ikonia: I should tell him to join ##networking  ?11:47
ikoniausr13: who ?11:47
usr13ikonia: never mind11:48
ikoniausr13: I was talking to gyre00811:48
MartijnHI think I may have a firewall issue with my ipv6 tunnel, but I'm not quite sure how to troubleshoot it.11:48
gyre008ikonia, if I use DHCP then I have to log on to the server from the Hypervisor, find out what IP it has assigned by DHCP server and THEN I can ssh from any client host…i don't want that…thats why I asked about the static ip stuff11:48
MartijnHI don't have ipv6 connectivity, ifconfig does display the tunnel11:48
ikoniagyre008: no you don't11:48
gyre008anyways will ask there...11:48
g00seAny expert modes available in installer to let me choose the desktop? Want to use xfce (essentially ending up with xubuntu)11:48
MartijnHipv6 addresses do get resolved to an ipv6 address11:48
ikoniagyre008: you set dhcp to update your internal dns, or just look at the lease file, there are many easier options11:48
hackeridisoperation not permited11:48
ikoniagyre008: you'll also see a nat or routing rule being added to the firewall11:49

hackeridisi can connect to the modem and see its setting but i can not connect to any website12:44

bekkshackeridis: Did you set a valid nameserver too?12:45
Ben64hackeridis: but you said you could see av.com address12:45
bekkshackeridis: Why not? Why cant you use ifconfig to set an IP address?12:45
hackeridisthe thing is its a laptop and at the moment i can only see the modem using a wired connection12:46
hackeridisi need wifi12:46
bekkshackeridis: And why cant you use ifconfig to set an IP address?12:47

bekkshackeridis: You HAVE internet, so submit a bug report if you think it is a bug.12:58
BluesKajHocusPocus, what's holding you back ?12:58
HocusPocusThere is a free 30GB partition. I boot the live CD and When I click on install I get three options (radio buttons) 1- install alongside win7  2 - ? and 3 - manual combination12:59
Auzyhackeridis, Type sudo dhclient eth0 into terminal then..12:59
hackeridishow i do not have internet on the ubuntu machine how many times do i have to say it12:59
bekkshackeridis: You ARE typing with us. So you HAVE internet.12:59
HocusPocusWhy Ubuntu does not "smell" that empty 30GB partition and tries to install itself on it ?12:59
ero-jijijust a quick question, is there a hard limit on the number of remote desktop sessions ubuntu 12.04LTS can handle, or is it only limited by the hardware and network connection?12:59
bekksHocusPocus: So you ARE able to submit a bug report.13:00
hackeridisi have 2 laptops 1 with windows which is working and the other with ubuntu which is not working13:00
Auzyhackeridis, 1) Either from your laptop.. https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+bugs   2) use sudo dhclient eth0, and ethernet will work13:00
bekkshackeridis: And why cant you submit a bug report from your second laptop?13:00
BluesKajHocusPocus, install alongside W7 is your bewst choice if your not familiar with manual partitioning13:00
hackeridisit says file exists13:01
bekkshackeridis: It also tells you WHICH file...13:01

WaltherIs there a way to disable bluetooth by default?13:11
Sidewinder1HocusPocus, You mention "criticized", then alongside; I suspect that is referring to WUBI; which, IMHO should be criticized but not confused with true dual boot. I've been dual booting since 2007 with no problems and I highly recommend it; along with plenty of research so that you know what you're doing. :-)13:11
hackeridisi will be using irc in ubuntu in a few min13:11
AuzyWhen I tried Wubi.. It didn't work for me actually..13:13
hackeridis_i am now using from ubuntu thanks guys13:13
Auzystill too hard though hackeridis though.. you should post a bug report13:14
Sidewinder1WUBI's primary thrust is to TRY ubuntu, from within the windows environment; it was never intended for long term use.13:15
AuzyYeah.. For me though.. just saying, it wouldn't boot..13:15
Sidewinder1Auzy, That was probably a good thing. ;-)13:16
WaltherIMHO the wubi installer should definitely be improved13:16
Walthermost laypeople don't know their way into BIOS13:16
Waltheror if they do, it's a bit scary13:16
AuzyI boot direct now anyway.. but honestly, I'd prefer they dumped Wubi and offered Virtualbox instead..13:16
bekksWubi should be extincted :)13:17
BluesKajwubi is ok for trying ubuntu , but i wouldn't use it as a second OS for any long period13:17
WaltherWubi in its current state should be extincted, as it causes so much problems. It should be *fixed*13:17
AuzyI dunno if it should.. There are more important things in Ubuntu to fix.. like the fact that you still can't automount SMB shares easily from the GUI yet on boot..13:18
AnDsOi think wubi is awsome invention so the windows users can explore and learn linux13:18
Sidewinder1Mornin' BluesKaj  I was wondering if you would chime in on wubi.. :-)13:18
Sidewinder1AnDsO, Agreed.13:19
BluesKajAnDsO, awesome only lasts for a little while13:19
BluesKajhey Sidewinder1 :)13:19
AuzyWhat advantages does Wubi offer over Virtualbox these days though? Its a bit faster, but, it either has to work all the time, or not be included at all.. for me, if I wasn't a long term linux user, it wouldn't have left a good impression..13:19
AnDsOall linux product should contain this type of software coz more people still dont trust linux they afraid to install fresh copy :(13:20

BluesKajAuzy, well, i don't agree with the direction canonical is taking the ubuntu desktop , so I'll hang on to my cash :)13:31

jzenbekks: your knoweldge doesnt not reflect my experience. No argument, simple fact. I wish I understood why, but at least things arent broken this minute.14:47
ikoniarochak: please show me the output of the command "mount" in a pastebin first14:47
jzenMy thanks to those that corrected my bad attitude. That was most helpful. Goodbye14:48
bekksjzen: apt-get will either present you an error messages, warnings, etc - or it will be successful in just removing the software. It will NOT leave software on your box without informing you about that, when using purge.14:48
Lunar_Landerthanks again bekks OerHeks MonkeyDust mneptok Sidewinder114:49
OrzipanHi all you lovely free software loving people14:49
OrzipanI've jsut installed ubuntu from wibu, and the system HATES me, i get unmet dependencies left ant right14:49
rochakikonia: please find the output of mount http://pastebin.com/3pMAB5V914:49
Orzipaninstalling flash is broken, multi language support is broken14:50
ikoniarochak: what file system is on /dev/sda7 ?14:50
WarOfTheNerdOrzipan, I don't recommend Wubi14:50
Orzipanand google gives no useful help14:50
rochakikonia: it was ext414:51
WarOfTheNerdWubi is best tested on English Windows builds14:51
Cyclohexaneis there three types of fork()?14:51
WarOfTheNerdIt's not designed with every language tested14:51
OrzipanWarOfTheNerd: hm, it has worked before? And I have an English windows build14:51
ikoniarochak: ok, so "sudo mount /dev/sda7 /var/tmp/test" tell me what you get14:51
OrzipanWarOfTheNerd: it's from within linux the language support is broken14:51
WarOfTheNerdOrzipan, have you had an unclean shutdown on it?  Wubi sucks tbh14:52
rochakikonia: it output "mount: you must specify the filesystem type "14:52
WarOfTheNerdIt loses data on crashes and runs slow14:52
ikoniarochak: "sudo mount -t ext4 /dev/sda7 /var/tmp/test"14:52
WarOfTheNerdOrzipan, my advice is to resize the Windows partition, ditch Wubi and do a proper dual-boot14:52
OrzipanWarOfTheNerd: first bootup and the problem was there, I just restarted to get my nvidia driver up, and the problem persists14:52
gordonjcpah, wubi14:53
gordonjcpit seemed like a good idea at the time14:53
OrzipanWarOfTheNerd: Yah, but I really hate having another bootloader than windows', if I choose to uninstall linux I have to find my windows cd and do a repair14:53
Orzipanso... wubi is kind of a dead end?14:53
OrzipanI shot myself in the foot?14:53
rochakikonia: It outputs http://pastebin.com/SEXmCbFA14:53
OrzipanAnd I just resized my windowes partition to get RID of my linux partitions (used to run Gentoo)14:54
ikoniarochak: ok, so somehow the file system appears to have been corrupted14:54
rochakyes ikonia14:55
ikoniarochak: where was /dev/sda7 mounted before ?14:55
Sidewinder1Orzipan, IMHO, wubi is nowhere near the optimal way to go; it's use, beyond trying ubuntu can be very problematic.14:55
rochakikonia: it was on /media/files14:55
Orzipan*sigh* And I just wanted a fast way of getting a Linux system up for development14:55
ikoniarochak: by any chance are you logging in as root ?14:56
bekksOrzipan: Then just use a VM.14:56
rochakikonia: not logged in as root but had been using command as sudo14:56
ikoniarochak: ok, that's good14:56
Orzipanbekks, I did, but... well I wanted to try and hack a bit of Libre office, and I need every bit of speed and memory I can get14:56
ikoniarochak: something else must have happened to change that file system or partition layout.14:57
rochakikonia: I was using that command to mount the iso14:58
ikoniarochak: the command you gave me has nothing to do with mounting an ISO14:58
=== zippo^ is now known as erkan^
rochakikonia: yes the command wasn;t complete. The full command that I was trying  "sudo mount -o loop /home/shamanstears/Documents/test.iso"14:59
MonkeyDustrochak  create a folder with an easy name, then type sudo mount /dev/blah [that name]14:59
ikoniarochak: again that won't do anything14:59
ikoniarochak: you've got no destination, so it won't mount anything anywhere14:59
rochakikonia: That was it, nothing going on else.15:00
Orzipanwell, I guess I'll do a proper install from usb, bbl :)15:00
ikoniarochak:  a.) that won't do anything b.) that should give a warning/error "no such mount point" or words to that effect15:00
rochakMonkeyDust: that gives tthe error "you must specity the filesystem type"15:00
rochakikonia: I remember then it gave such warning and the /media/files was gone and dev/sda7 was there. Then I rebooted and I got the error "press S to skip or M for manual recovery..."15:02
ikoniarochak: ok, so a.) /media/files will not be changed by that command, neither will /dev/sda7 b.) /media/files does not stop your machine from booting / warnings - so you have done something else at some point to cause this problem15:03
MonkeyDust!iso > rochak did you read this15:04

ikoniaMonkeyDust: what good is that going to do him ?15:04
ikoniaMonkeyDust: his problem is a partition on his local disk is corrupted,15:04
rochakikonia: Maybe I was thinking, i live boot from ubuntu and grab the UUID from it and paste it in fstab15:05
ikoniarochak: ok - so remove that from the fstab, that should solve your boot issue15:05
ikoniarochak: but that won't bring your data back.15:05

emp_The HDD16:23
Jay-It started crackling and making this glassy sound, still is16:23
tonsofpcsglassy sound? like broken glass moving around?16:24
ikoniaemp_: ok, so either a.) the boot order is wrong b.) the usb is no longer bootable so it's getting overlooked16:24
emp_I assume it goes through the USB, notices the OS is already installed, and proceeds to run it16:24
Jay-sort of yes16:24
user_well lets talk about how we can improve ubuntu16:24
tonsofpcsJay-: congratulations! you shattered a platter.16:24

ikoniauser_: no, this is a technical support channel. Please keep to that topic16:24
Jay-I can already using Ubuntu is going to be like navigating a minefield.16:24

pepperjack_LCN_: you mean using the onboard and nvidia video at the same time?  I'd probably just disable onboard in bios unless youre trying to do some multi monitor setup16:24
_LCN_what is the right way to install a nvidia gt 520 card on ubuntu fresh install16:24

decciikonia: Any idea how can i provide password through script so that it can be automated..I dont need passwordless16:25
emp_I will check the USB is fine with my secondary computer16:25
ikoniaemp_: ok so either a.) the grub install is looking at your local disk b.) your defaulting to the "boot from local hard disk" option of the grub install on the USB16:26
Sidewinder1tonsofpcs, I thought he said his speakers; my bad..16:26
tonsofpcsa hard drive is physically a bunch of spinning disks (we call them platters) made of ceramic material with magnetic material intermingled16:26

Sidewinder1tonsofpcs, Yes, I know what platters are.16:26
decciikonia: Yes..I have already those steps but what if I want to provide password through scripts16:26

Jay-it's sharp16:27
tonsofpcsJay-: very rapidly?16:27
tonsofpcsthat sounds like AC3...16:27
ikoniaemp_: not unless you've booted the ubuntu install CD16:27
decciikonia: here is the command: rsync -avh /opt/linux1/ root@ where to pipe it16:27
tonsofpcscheck your sound card settings to make sure they're not set for dolby output.16:27
ikoniadecci: after that16:27
Jay-Probably. I was running RhythmBox16:27
ikoniadecci: that should get you a prompt that you can then pipe into16:27
Jay-it just stopped16:27
emp_I think something changed within the USB after the installation16:28
Jay-and started again16:28
emp_I'll mount the OS in it, again16:28
Jay-once a track started playing again16:28

tonsofpcsJay-: it really sounds like it was in dolby (AC3) mode somehhow16:30
ikoniaviju: well, looking at that file, I'd say your permissions are messed up which is why it can't use that file at unencyption time16:30

pepperjack_LCN_: so when you say something isnt working.  does that mean you just cant use hdmi port for video?16:32
ikoniaviju: you have to copy the data off it, put a new file system on it and put it back. I'm not aware of a way to unencypt beyond that (there maybe a way)16:32

pepperjack_LCN_: temporarily move that so "sudo mv /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf-bak"  you can reverse those two to move it back but do that then try restarting or however youve been relaunching x16:37

ikoniait's not an ubuntu release.16:46
pepperjack_LCN_: if you reboot and hold down shift key it will let you see your grub bootloader menu.  you can then hit 'e' to edit the first entry which is the default one.  and at the line that starts with 'linux'  go to the end of the line and add the nomodeset option   then ctrl-x to boot.  this doesn't actually change your config it just lets you test with this parameter to see if it will fix it.  only works for that boot16:46

shwaiilwilee-nilee: thanks for looking! I'll do that. So whats important is to check the MB and the Graphic card and so on.17:14
wilee-nileeshwaiil, If it is a really new hardware release in general that is where I would look for problems, some need to be out a year or so to be covered from what I understand. I use older stuff in general so my advice is not your best.17:15

histoParham: do you hvae ports forwarded to your machine properly?17:25
wilee-nileealek66, I have not messed with plp for awhile, so I forget if from windows it mounts the ISO or just boots the usb, the partitioning would depend on that. Ubuntu is ext4, unless it is the iso for booting which would be a fat.17:25
alek66wilee-nilee: will try it, thanks guys17:25
wilee-nileethe ubuntu install would be ext417:25

terafl0psHello.  I can't get any SIP client to transmit audio to the remote end of the conversation on my fully patched Ubuntu precise system.  The internal microphone on my laptop picks up audio and plays it back through the speakers or my headphones, but no SIP client seems to be able to send this audio out.17:43

zorbamasaxin, this is a bug with the latest flash version. You can try installing flash with hardware acceleration, but it might cause the plugin to crash all the time18:08
BluesKajsporkf, but you can edit the sources.list by adding a or removing debs directly if you wish , just make sure you update afterwards18:09

wilee-nileeShahin-a, besides no answering of questions and the lack of important info to begin with18:52
TheMinerViaNocturna  and what is your boot time into an older kernel?18:53
Shahin-awilee-nilee, thanks anyway. i will go for a new instalation18:53
ViaNocturnaTheMiner: that's where im stumped...an older kernel made no difference, whilst an older release of Ubuntu did18:53

KircleSo update manager popped up with some new driver updates for my intel HD graphics. I installed them and decided to reboot. Upon doing so unity no longer loads when I login. I only see the files on my desktop along with my wallpaper.19:01
kodomohi folks - I've got a problem with ssh-add/ssh-agent in precise which is driving me nuts... maybe someone can help me? :P19:02
DG_hi :)19:02
kodomothing is: I'd like ssh, ssh-add, and ssh-agent to behave like in the old days: ssh-add specific identities which are subsequently to be used by ssh...19:03
KircleRunning gnome-panel gives me gnome2 where everything works fine. Running unity however has some odd problems like opening a drop down menu. The menu will flicker. Sometimes a chunk of the menu will dissappear to reveal the background19:03
DG_I have a quick question, can i dual boot ubuntu using the same process to dual boot windows 7 and 8?19:04
blzDG_, the toughest thing there is getting Win7/8 to coexist.  After you've done that successfully, you can just install ubuntu as you normally would to dual boot and it should detect both OSes19:04
kodomohowever, in precise, ssh-agent preloads all identities I hold in ~/.ssh (which are too many -> no login succeeds anymore, as the ssh server is always refusing after a couple of 'tried' identities)19:04
blzDG_, of course you should check that each OS is detected before actually committing to install!19:05
Joe1is there a app to view networked computers on windows 719:05
kodomodeleting identities via ssh-add -D doesn't seem to be working either19:05
terafl0psJoe1, the places menu should have an option that reads "Network"19:06
kodomohence my question: where do I deconfigure this autoloading of identities?19:06
ChukyOla :D19:06
terafl0psJoe1: That should have a folder that reads "windows network" inside.19:06
DG_blz i have installed windows 8 in a dual boot already, i uninstalled it so now i want to install ubuntu. Would i go about the same process to dual boot it?19:07
natsirtDG_: Windows 8 is a joke19:07
ChukyAlguno se sabe la contraseña de Guadalinex Edu19:07
DG_exactly why i uninstalled it19:07
ChukyAlgun español?19:07
natsirtwhat are your OS's now?19:07
bekks!es | Chuky19:08
ubottuChuky: En la mayoría de los canales de Ubuntu, se habla sólo en inglés. Si busca ayuda en español entre al canal #ubuntu-es; escriba "/join #ubuntu-es" (sin comillas) y presione intro.19:08
DG_im just using windows 719:08
natsirtLinux always overwrites, just pop in the ubuntu disc and install on a different partition19:08
blzDG_, I'm not exactly sure what you mean... You installed win7 & win 8 together (dual boot).  Now you uninstalled one (or both)?  And now you want to install ubuntu on top of that?19:09
DG_no, im saying would i do the same process to install it? as in making a new partition and all that19:09
natsirtDG_: You are good just install ubuntu on a seperate partition19:10
blzDG_, I don't know what process you originally used...19:10
DG_oh ok so all it needs is a seperate partition alright thanks :)19:10
natsirtDG_: Linux on top of windows is easy, the other way is tricky19:10
blzDG_, but the ubuntu graphical installer is very good about recognizing other OSes and installing ubuntu on a separate partition.  Much of that is automated.19:10
blzDG_, like I said before, once you have all the windows OSes organized the way you want, Ubuntu will politely install itself and add GRUB entries for your other OSes19:10
DG_alright cool, is there a minimum amount of space i need for the partition? 20GB right?19:11
TheMiner20gb is plenty19:12
DG_alright cool thanks guys :)19:12
blzDG_, I've installed ubuntu on as little as 1019:12
DG_now i just have to wait for the iso to finish downloading19:13
TheMinerforgo Unity and you can get away with 619:13

ViaNocturnaDG_: one of the many reasons to fall in love with Linux19:21
leonardRKyle: what do you want to do?  i remember an article in a magazine but not the name19:22
DG_only reason im not ditching windows 7 is gaming lol19:22

emp_If anybody here uses the Wikipedia Lens application, do you know how to change the default language it searches the articles in?19:27
leonardViaNocturna: i used it only for wc3 and even though it worked the performance was way worse than under windows19:28
terafl0psRKyle, the chief compatibility obstacle to HTML5 is Internet Explorer at this point.19:28
RKyleterafl0ps, Which is also why I want to build in flash for now.19:29
ViaNocturnaleonard: thats very possible, some games work amazing, others...well...not so much lol19:29
RKyleMaybe do a user agent check and only use the flash product in IE and load the HTML5 clone for everyone else.19:30
trismemp_: where did you get the lens? if it is based on the one here: http://developer.ubuntu.com/2012/04/how-to-create-a-wikipedia-unity-lens-for-ubuntu/ then it probably gets the language from the locale19:31
emp_trism: I got it from the Ubuntu program center19:32
terafl0psRKyle, If you are feeling adventurous, you might try installing it in PlayOnLinux.  I have no idea if it will work.  Your other option is to set up a Windows VM and run it in there.19:33
