xxSn1p3rxxthats the wave length of a 2.4 ghz wifi signal :P00:00
the56ker-MouSeshihan, ill let you know in a moment00:00
the56ker-MouSereturned no chroot environment found. starting normal installation an unsupported bcm4301, bcm4306 or bcm4306/2 device was found. use b43legacy firmware (firmware-b43legacy-installer.....00:05
the56ker-MouSepackage) instead.00:05
KillJoyI wish OMGUBUNTU was on right now.  I really need to thank him/her for recommending playonlinux.00:05
the56ker-MouSeshihan, that would make sense because i beleave i have BCM4306 if im not mistaken that sounds correct00:07
shihanthe56ker-MouSe, ahhh, yeah, legacy installer supports tho, fair enough00:08
the56ker-MouSeshihan, used my brain just downloaded the installer after modifying the link you sent me before lets see what happens00:09
shihanthe56ker-MouSe, if you just go to packages.ubuntu.com you can search from there00:10
the56ker-MouSeshihan, yeah i did it the lazy way but i have my next problem already00:10
xxSn1p3rxxbtw... is efnet still alive ?00:11
the56ker-MouSeshihan, the installer tries to download wl_apsta-  it cant with no internet access i already have that file in the same directory though00:12
dewwxxSn1p3rxx: yes.00:12
VlanZhey there... anyone using vmware under ubuntu?00:12
Krambiorixhi guys, since i rebooted my mail server, i can't connect via IMAP anymore, any ideas?00:12
shihanthe56ker-MouSe, ahh, that part im not sure i can help with, i've never used a b43 myself00:13
shihanVlanZ, yeah00:13
xxSn1p3rxxdeww: you wouldnt know any servers would you? all i found was irc.servercentra.net ...00:13
compdocKrambiorix, guess it depends on teh mail ser4ver package you have running00:13
shihanKrambiorix, what does your imap for you?00:13
dewwxxSn1p3rxx: wrong channel for it, but check efnet.org, unofficial page.00:14
the56ker-MouSeshihan, ahhh lol that package is already installed i believe is there a command line to edit the installer to read from the directory and install insteal of grabbing from the internet?00:14
xxSn1p3rxxkk tnx :)00:14
Krambiorixcompdoc, dovecot00:14
VlanZshihan: i'm just curious, when i run a VM, the RAM consumption of the host never changes no matter how many VM i power up00:14
shihanVlanZ, which vmware btw?00:15
VlanZshihan: workstation00:15
shihanthe56ker-MouSe, not a clue unfortunately00:15
shihanVlanZ, yeah, thats what i use, where are you watching memory from?00:15
Krambiorixcompdoc, i can't connect with telnet00:15
Krambiorixcompdoc, could it be a firewall issue?00:15
k4r1mdamn ubuntu, just deleted centrifydc after an update and I can no longer login to my machine >.<00:16
compdocKrambiorix, there are times when an update will replace the old .conf file with a newer one. You might want to find the dovecot files, likelt in /etc/dovecot/ and look at the names of the files there. Im not familure with dovecot00:16
VlanZshihan: system monitor, free -m, ANYTHING00:16
rtcgWell, I'm giving up on 10.04 audio.  It's too choppy.  Maybe I'll truy again later.00:16
the56ker-MouSeshihan, is there a offline install FAQ possibly? i'll be right back also thank you for your help thus far greatly appreaciated00:16
tsimpsonVlanZ: I'd assume vmware would reserve the memory just before starting up the VM, rather than allocating it bit by bit00:17
shihanVlanZ, watch top, you should see vmware-vmx process which reports its memory, it should change a bit for each vm00:17
WeThePeoplehow do i find out the free space amount on windows mounted disk?00:17
Krambiorixcompdoc, all files have a last modified date in the past00:17
escottWeThePeople, df -h should say00:17
compdocKrambiorix, how do you connect, from outside the lan?00:17
shihanKrambiorix, checp "ps -ef |grep imap" you should see some dovecot proc's00:17
blackshirtkrambioric, if you can't telnet your imap,something goes wrong00:18
shihanthe56ker-MouSe, just having a look atm00:18
Krambiorixcompdoc outside, but it tried telnet localhost 143 and can't connect00:18
the56ker-MouSeshihan, no problem take your time00:18
shihanthe56ker-MouSe, have a look at this one: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WifiDocs/Driver/bcm43xx#b43%20-%20No%20Internet%20access00:18
Krambiorixshihan, http://pastebin.com/yRx3f0KV00:18
compdocKrambiorix, was the server using a static IP address? Sounds like it might have changed, so port forwarding no longer works00:19
compdocKrambiorix, if thats true, its not recieving mail either00:19
Krambiorixcompdoc, static ip, didn't change, cause i can login with ssh still00:19
VlanZshihan: yeah, i can see that, but if i add up all the vm processes, i end up with a much larger amount compared to what free -m tells me00:19
compdocoh, good00:19
WeThePeoplewill deleting windows and then reinstalling windows mess up the grub?00:20
compdocKrambiorix, there is no default firewall enabled in Ubuntu00:20
escottWeThePeople, yes00:20
shihanVlanZ, well, depends on which column your looking at, res is the "memory im really using" column00:20
compdocKrambiorix, can you telnet port 25 on the server?00:20
escottVlanZ, it might be sharing pages between the VMs00:21
Krambiorixcompdoc, iptables is running ... But i added iptables -A INPUT -p tcp -s [my_ip] --dport 143 -m state --state NEW,ESTABLISHED -j ACCEP00:21
Krambiorixcompdoc yes, i can telnet 25 on localhost00:21
compdocKrambiorix, but from the outside, is port 25 reaching the server?00:21
Krambiorixcompdoc yes00:22
VlanZshihan: at the moment i just have two VM running, one is 1.1G and the other is 1.0G.  But free -m only sees 1204Mb00:23
k4r1mis there anyway to print a user's password using root?00:24
escottk4r1m, no00:24
k4r1mescott :(00:25
shihanKrambiorix, by default (iirc) ubuntu only enables the ssl port for imap (993) and disables 14300:25
tsimpsonk4r1m: passwords are stored using a one-way hashing algorithm, so you can't reverse that to get the password back. though root can change the password for any user00:25
compdocKrambiorix, if you can ssh to it, what happens if you type in:  telnet 14300:26
shihanVlanZ, ahhh, vmware workstation can be quite tricky with the way it handles memory00:26
k4r1mI just tried reseting but that doesn't seem to work either.. tells me user doesn't exist00:26
VlanZshihan: might be a stupid question, but how do i exactly read this   Mem:         15936       5700      10235          0         76       442000:26
escottk4r1m, what are you trying to do?00:26
VlanZused 5.7G and cached 4.4G?00:27
zack6849Hey guys, how do I use the advanced partitioning tool, when I try to select my 150gb partition it says "no root file system is defined, please correct this In the partitioning menu"00:27
escottVlanZ, yes00:27
shihanVlanZ, yeah,00:27
k4r1mescott: my user on machine is an active directory user via centrifydc.. I ran an update and janitor and I believe it removed centrify. I can no longer log in.00:27
VlanZbu why so much cached?00:27
wilee-nileezack6849, you using the something other manual install option?00:28
Krambiorixcompdoc, 993 works00:28
zack6849I used install with windows00:28
zack6849I'm on the desktop 12.04 lts00:28
k4r1malso my user doesn't exist inside passwd00:28
escottzack6849, in the installer you need to have a partition for which you specify the mountpoint as "/" any data on that partition will be deleted00:28
shihanVlanZ, linux tends to just chew up mem for cache by design, it wont erally impact anything if something needs memory00:28
wilee-nileezack6849, Can you be a little more clear on what you are doing ay least for me and be sure to use nicks. ;)00:29
escottk4r1m, active directory is a windows thing... presumably you must be using some kind of ldap or samba connector to AD00:29
zack6849Well wilee, I'm trying to dual boot ubuntu00:29
escottk4r1m, but the user would not appear in /etc/passwd if it were an LDAP or AD account00:29
k4r1mescott: yeah centrifyDc00:29
zack6849And it gives me a few options in the installer00:29
zack6849Replace windows, install with windows, and something else00:30
Skapareshihan: worse, it frequently lags on starting writes to devices ... it just leaves what your program writes in that cache until a sync call00:30
EighteensHello, i'm trying to help my dad get m4v, and ogg files to work inside his browser, we are both on 10.04, it's working on mine, we both use chromium-browser, i forgot which plugin i installed to make this work, can someone give me the sudo apt-get install  plugin-name00:30
escottk4r1m, so if centrify was the interface to the AD server then you need to reinstall centrify00:30
zack6849I selected install with00:30
VlanZshihan: however, assuming i'm running two VMs and i open line 20 firefox pages till i cap the 1.0G that i've allocated for that VM and the system monitor does show me that on the gest VM, how is it possible that i just see 1.2G on the host?00:30
k4r1mescott: well actually I think centrify is still here00:31
wilee-nileezack6849, A true dual boot is partitioned installs, the ubuntu install from windows is only a file in windows.00:31
zack6849And when I select the partition I want and hit install now, it says that a root file system isn't defined00:31
zack6849Wilee, I'm doing dual boot.00:31
k4r1mescott: adinfo says the machine is joined but centrifydc is down00:31
zack6849With partitions00:31
i7cBBBBBB/BBBBBBconditionally fatal and cause an exit with a nonzero exit; this applies to internal inconsistencies and some cases of running out of memory. All error messages are written to the standard error stream; normal output from executed commands is written to standard output.00:31
i7csorry for that00:31
escottVlanZ, the 1.0GB limit on the VM memory is the limit on RAM, but the VM still has 2^32 or 2^64 addressable. so the VM might decide given its limited RAM that it wants to swap out the unused firefox pages00:32
wilee-nileezack6849, Are doing a manual install from the something else option on the live cd install?00:32
zack6849No, I'm doing install Ubuntu alongside windows00:32
wilee-nileezack6849, And how are you doing that?00:33
xxSn1p3rxxsorry perhaps out of topic but... anybody have knowhow on wifi cantennas ?00:33
zack6849It then gives me two sliders to splitnthe parfition I want00:33
zack6849But I didn't want it split00:33
zack6849I already sized it how I wished00:33
zack6849so iI hit advanced partitioning tool00:33
escottk4r1m, you'll have to find someone who knows more about this centrify program00:34
wilee-nileezack6849, If you were paying attention at the gui before that one there was a something else option, this is why I asked you that first.00:34
k4r1mhow can I add a new user from the recovery shell? I tried using 'adduser' and proceeded to gdm and got a crash after login.00:34
zack6849Shohld I use the something else option?00:34
VlanZescott: that's it i'm going to create a VM with 6GB of available ram, and then i'm running linpack on it. If i'm not seeing anything on the host i think i could break something00:34
k4r1mis there a special group or permission users need to have to run gnome desktop?00:34
wilee-nileezack6849, Not sure to be honest we are not really communicating, so I can't help in good concious. ;)00:35
zack6849What is it you need to kniw wilee?00:35
zack6849apologies for typos, I'm on a phone00:35
wilee-nileezack6849, I think the channel in general is your best help with the info you have given, someone can do it no biggie. ;)00:36
WeThePeopleescott, so when windows is reinstalled will their be a dual boot menu00:36
zack6849Im sorry what00:36
escottk4r1m, you might try logging into the new user on tty1 (ctrl-alt-f1) then stopping your dm (sudo service gdm stop) and then startx00:36

EighteensWeThePeople, i have it working on mine, but i forgot what i did to make it work, trying to get it to work on my dads, we are on identical systems under 10.0400:41
escottWeThePeople, shouldn't affect the OS other than your need to reinstall grub onto the mbr00:41
WeThePeopleeighteens, did you download it from a different site so it wont be automatically addes to chrome?00:41
gimpy38Running Ubuntu Server 12.04 with LXDE+Openbox I get no thumbnails of any videos with nautilus or pcmanfm.  Any clue as to why?00:41
VlanXescott: maybe running xlinpack inside a VM is not a good idea :/00:41
WeThePeopleescott, thanks00:41
bglazerThanks escott, I was hoping there might be a solution that didn't involve xrandr but I'll look into it00:42
usr13zack6849: The partitioner tool tells you that you have not selected a root file system because you haven't.  You need a partition for / and for swap, at the very least, (two partitions).  If you designate one for /home/, that will be three;  /  and  /home/ and swap.  etc. etc. etc.00:42
escottbglazer, im sure there are some guis, but its all xrandr in the end00:42
zack6849Oh okay00:43
zack6849Thanks usr00:43
usr13zack6849: NP00:43
zack6849Usr, is there one that I should give momre memory too?00:43
zack6849Or should I make it even or what?00:44
WeThePeopleeighteens, if you did that, find the file you downloaded open up the extensions page in chrome and drag and drop.. its that easy00:44
usr13zack6849: How much room do you have for the Ubuntu install (altogether)?00:44
k4r1mhmm that didn't work.. now "I'm getting account cannot be access this time, contact your system admin"00:44
zack6849About 200gb00:44

EighteensWeThePeople thanks for the help00:48
escottk4r1m, not by default, and since your account isn't a standard unix account anyways we are going to have to point you back to your AD server centrify configuration00:49
zack6849Usr13, see what I mean?00:49
escottk4r1m, you might want to try the #ubuntu-server channel they *might* know more about AD00:50

xxSn1p3rxxo. my bad01:00
bazhangBasstard`, is this really  helping?01:01
zack6849should I be setting these to logical or primary01:01
escottzack6849, ubuntu doesn't care01:01
zack6849K then01:01
jagginesszack6849, you can use minimal , "/" and "swap".. it's optional to you if you want a separate partition for /home ..01:01
Basstard`bazhang: It helps to be accurate, even in the question.01:01
escottzack6849, you are limited to 4 primaries, but you can use 1 primary to contain essentially unlimited numbers of logicals01:01
usr13zack6849:  What you will have is one primary with a couple logical partitions within that primary partition.01:01

zack6849It requests I select a device for bootloader install01:06
bazhangxxSn1p3rxx, about what01:06
zack6849Which do I select01:06
jagginesszack6849, /dev/sda01:06
CreativeRoundHello, Is it recommended to do a sudo do-release-upgrade  on ubuntu 9.1?01:07
escottzack6849, /dev/sda is correct. that dropbox at the bottom of the screen is showing the correct selection01:07
zack6849 Fuuuuuuu01:07
xxSn1p3rxxits a manual partitioning guide for ubuntu 11...with screenshots.. could be helpful :-)01:07
usr13zack6849: click   Install Now01:07
zack6849I did01:07
escottzack6849, /dev/sda in the context of the bootloader means the MBR of the disk known as /dev/sda01:07
CreativeRoundHow do I upgrade from 9.10 to 11?  Is it recommended to do a sudo do-release-upgrade on ubuntu 9?01:07
usr13zack6849: What error?01:08
ubottuFor upgrading, see the instructions at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UpgradeNotes - see also http://www.ubuntu.com/desktop/get-ubuntu/upgrade01:08
usr13zack6849: send pic01:08
zack6849Some of the partitions you created are too small. Please make the following partitions at least this small "/2.4GB")01:08
bazhang!eolupgrades > CreativeRound01:08
ubottuCreativeRound, please see my private message01:08
jribCreativeRound: I'd suggest you consider upgrading to 10.04 and then to 12.04 (since 10.04 and 12.04 are both LTS, you can skip the intermediate versions when upgrading)01:08
usr13zack6849: Oh, I see.   / is too small.01:08
escottzack6849, the partition for / is too small. that needs to be at least 10GB01:09
vankoochHow do I add a preseed file to txt.cfg, I've tried all the vartions found on google with no success. file=/cdrom/preseed/public.seed and preseed/file=/cdrom/preseed/public.seed did not work.01:09
usr13zack6849: 2046MB is only 2G01:09
xxSn1p3rxxtake a look at this guide... its well documented and has screenshots01:09
zack6849What do I set it to then01:09
usr13zack6849: So make it 20G (not 2G)01:09
zack6849lol, I failed01:09
usr13zack6849: delete /home01:10
CreativeRoundwhat would you recommend for a web server version?01:10
usr13zack6849: Then make / bigger01:10
zack6849I know01:10
zack6849Doin it01:10
k4r1mescott: After a little more digging it seem that I'm connected to my AD and I can log in fine from the recovery shell using "su username" but I can't login from gdm01:10
bazhangCreativeRound, LTS ? yes, thats five years of support01:10
jagginesszack6849, you can stick with 2 partitions (as i originally said--if you'd like), make it as big as you like and the other has to be at least 1 gig (i think 1 gig for swap is large enough)01:10
escottk4r1m, su username won't work because the user doesn't exist unless the AD service is working01:11
k4r1mescott: it did work01:11
k4r1mNVM IT'S WORKING :)))))01:11
jagginesszack6849, "/home" would exist on the "/" mount partition, if you decide to only use 2 partitions01:11
k4r1mi guess rejoining the vpn updated the cache01:11
zack6849Jagg, no offense but all you're doing is confusing me01:11
jagginesszack6849, well they're now telling you to do 2..01:12
escottk4r1m, think about about the stuff in /etc/passwd. that is *all* you need to create an account, so things like LDAP and AD can just provide the required information (password auth process, $HOME location, UID and GIDs) to the login process, but without them it says "I don't know how to set $HOME or how to set GID or UID01:12
usr13zack6849: Did you change it?01:12
jagginesszack6849, it's simply 2 partitions, one for ext4(which would host "/"), and the other is "swap"01:12
zack6849Yes usr01:12
zack6849Then I redid /home01:12
zack6849And am installing01:12
usr13zack6849: Good.01:12
usr13zack6849: How big was /home?01:13
=== AndrewX192_ is now known as AndrewX192
CreativeRoundhow do I upgrade to 10.04?01:13
xxSn1p3rxxnormally... ubuntu makes 4 partitions... home, / (root), boot, and an optional 4th for general storage01:13
zack6849I forget01:13
zack6849I did 8gb swap and 20gb /01:13
wilee-nileeAndrewX192, From?01:13
zack6849Like 172gb?01:13
xxSn1p3rxxzack how much RAM does your system have?01:14
usr13zack6849: Ok, goodl.  (If you ever re-install, you will be glad you have separate /home/ partition.)01:14
wilee-nileexxSn1p3rxx, Ubuntu will make two partition only unless you specify other wise / and swap01:14
jagginessusr13, a separate /home partition really has no gain at all.. unless you're hosting thousands of users on a dedicated san storage or something01:14
usr13zack6849: You mean 120GB ?01:14
xxSn1p3rxxok then you really dont need a big swap...01:14
usr13jagginess: Not true.01:14
xxSn1p3rxxyou got more then enough there01:15
Basstard`If he wants to hibernate.01:15
zack6849I was told something called berg lookes better than grub01:15
zack6849What is it?01:15
the56ker-MouSedoes anyone know how to get my wireless adapter showing in connections again? or did i screw it up that bad lol it still shows in terminal lspci but it doesnt show under settings>network> wireless is no longer there01:15
usr13zack6849: Just use grub01:15
escottzack6849, an unsupported bit of software that appears for less than 1 second during the boot01:16
jagginessusr13, well if you can show a link how much benefit it is, i'd be glad to look.. I've been using linux for many many years :).. Never seen any performance gain with it01:16
=== mike_ is now known as Guest14634
xxSn1p3rxxwilee-nilee: ah... so default is just home and ext ?01:16
zack6849Lol, okay wont use it then01:16
wilee-nileethe56ker-MouSe, You probably want to give a synopsis of what git you where you're at.01:16
usr13jagginess: I did not say there would be a performance gain.01:16
zack6849How do people make it to where their.terminal has a cool loga and stuff with ascii?01:16
xxSn1p3rxxer wait.. nm.01:16
zack6849Always been curious01:17
wilee-nileexxSn1p3rxx, actually yeah it will wrap the swap in a a extended I have seen and a home, I always do manula installs so not sure on the extended being made.01:17
the56ker-MouSewilee-nilee, i have been trying to get my wireless adapter to work firmware was missing and i did a couple of walk throughs to get it to work everything ended up smoothly working out but now i have no wireless settings and i still cant enable drivers from settings>additional drivers>01:17
escottthe56ker-MouSe, what does rfkill list say01:18
xxSn1p3rxxwilee-nilee: is it viable to use FAT as extended for storage? or is there a security risk if its not a native linux partition?01:18
wilee-nileethe56ker-MouSe, cool that should get you the help you need. ;)01:18
the56ker-MouSewilee-nilee, BCM4306/2 adapter01:18
CreativeRoundhow do I upgrade to 10.04 from 9.10?01:18
wilee-nileethe56ker-MouSe, outside my pay range otherwise.01:18
escottxxSn1p3rxx, (a) doesn't support posix permissions (b) just a overall ****ty filesystem without journalling or large file support01:18
usr13CreativeRound: With AlternateCD or USB01:18
jribCreativeRound: read the links ubottu gave you last time you asked01:19
CreativeRoundok thanks01:19
CreativeRoundits an AWS server I'm updating01:19
xxSn1p3rxxescott: hah... i guess the only plus side is the interoperability with windows...01:19
jagginessCreativeRound, you're asking this for like the 3rd time.. why not just download 12.04? (also read the message ubottu gave on !upgrade)01:19
escottxxSn1p3rxx, but you certainly could use it for data files (dont use it for $HOME or anything user sensitive)01:19
escottxxSn1p3rxx, probably better off using NTFS-3g for interop01:20
the56ker-MouSeescott, (rfkill list) returns nothing01:20
wilee-nileeCreativeRound, I would just install 12.04 and get the 5 years coverage if it was me.01:20
usr13jagginess: Maybe he just wants 10.04?01:20
xxSn1p3rxxescott: ah... yeah ill go ntfs then.01:20
escottthe56ker-MouSe, sounds like the kernel drivers aren't even loaded then01:20
CreativeRoundthats what I'm going to do wilee01:20
CreativeRoundwhat does that provide me?   support?01:20
the56ker-MouSeescott, possbily im typing the command wrong?01:21
wilee-nileeCreativeRound, It wont go end of life for one and yes support here.01:21
wilee-nileenot for five years anyway.01:21
WeThePeoplewhat does the last part mean the 'image'>>> http://paste.ubuntu.com/1227721/01:21
escottthe56ker-MouSe, it would just be "rfkill list" if you were typing it wrong you would probably get some kind of error message01:21
the56ker-MouSeok yes just returns to command01:22
escottthe56ker-MouSe, what kind of wireless card do you have01:22
the56ker-MouSeescott, broadcom BCM4306/201:22
escottthe56ker-MouSe, have you followed the !broadcom instructions to install the drivers?01:23
the56ker-MouSeescott, i currently have no active internet connection on the laptop either01:23
the56ker-MouSeescott, to my knowledge i have followed the offline instructions if you can provide me a link i can double check to see if ive already tried it lol01:23
escott!broadcom | the56ker-MouSe01:24
ubottuthe56ker-MouSe: Help with Broadcom bcm43xx can be found at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WifiDocs/Driver/bcm43xx01:24
the56ker-MouSeescott, yes i just did all of that no errors everything went smooth01:24
the56ker-MouSeescott, i believe last night i di the ndiswrapper guide and that mite possibly be what made my adapter disapear last night i started with no firmware installed but the adapter was there now everything installed smoothly and the adapter never came back but it shows in lspci still01:26
superfake123when I set 'Auto-hide the Launcher' to 'On' it does not ever reveal again D: How can I fix?01:26
usr13the56ker-MouSe: Did you get the firmware installed?01:27
the56ker-MouSeusr13, following the broadcom b43xx guide everything installed smoothly01:28
escottthe56ker-MouSe, lspci just shows that the hardware exists, but it doesn't mean the OS knows anything about it. you need to load the drivers01:28
usr13the56ker-MouSe:  Ok then, issue command iwconfig  #See what it says.01:28
the56ker-MouSeusr13, it iwconfig returned no wireless extensions01:29
the56ker-MouSeusr13, escott, like i said it was there last night before i tried the ndiswrapper guide and now its not ;_;01:30
SparkyFlarywhat's the difference between ubuntu server and debian?01:30
escottSparkyFlary, one is ubuntu the other is debian01:30
eroach101- -01:30
the56ker-MouSeusr13, escott, i believe i followed https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WifiDocs/Driver/Ndiswrapper and another guide01:31
SparkyFlarybesides the names..01:31
usr13the56ker-MouSe: sudo ndiswrapper -l01:31
escottSparkyFlary, traditionally ubuntu takes debian testing, freezes packages for a few months and bug fixes so ubuntu is approximately debian testing lagged a few months, but thats not set in stone01:31
usr13the56ker-MouSe: sudo ndiswrapper -l  #This command will show the currently installed drivers.01:32
SparkyFlarywhat about the server edition01:32
the56ker-MouSeusr13, thats the guide i followed last night its today i did the other guide that i probably should have done first01:33
usr13the56ker-MouSe:  Do you have the inf file?01:33
escottSparkyFlary, what about it. its a different set of packages more appropriate for a server install01:33
SparkyFlarywhy would they make a sever edition if debian does just that?01:33
the56ker-MouSeusr13, it returned bcmwl5 annd bcmwl5a drivers installed01:33
usr13the56ker-MouSe: Good.  Now go back to the guide and take it up from there. Finish the process.01:34
escottSparkyFlary, because some people want to run ubuntu. debian includes all the gui programs if you want them01:34
rickbolsince we're on the subject: bcm4311... how to?01:34
SparkyFlaryi don't want gui01:34
the56ker-MouSeusr13, i also did this http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=76656001:34
usr13the56ker-MouSe: Which one is yours?  What is your wireless device?01:35
escottSparkyFlary, ubuntu is to debian as scientific linux is to rhel, with the exception that ubuntu doesn't target debian compatibility to the same extent that scientific would to rhel01:35
the56ker-MouSeusr12 my is bcm4306/201:35
the56ker-MouSeusr13, ** i did this guide today it went smooth https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WifiDocs/Driver/bcm43xx01:36
usr13the56ker-MouSe: So you are down to step 301:36
=== ferret__ is now known as ferret_
the56ker-MouSeusr13, your saying i should continue the ndiswrapper guide and try it agian?01:36
escottSparkyFlary, you can start from ubuntu-minimal and then install whatever programs/ubuntu flavor you want01:36
jribSparkyFlary: probably the biggest differences imo are canonical supporting ubuntu and the release cycles01:36
usr13the56ker-MouSe: Did you do  "sudo modprobe ndiswrapper"?01:36
the56ker-MouSeusr13, i did all 3 guides that i linked you 2 last night and 1 today01:37
blackshirt1SparkyFlary: escot was right, you can play with ubuntu-minimal and build grow up your system do you like01:37
SparkyFlaryso ubuntu server might have more features and might be better for me compared to debian?01:37
escott!best | SparkyFlary01:38
ubottuSparkyFlary: Usually, there is no single "best" application to perform a given task. It's up to you to choose, depending on your preferences, features you require, and other factors. Do NOT take polls in the channel. If you insist on getting people's opinions, ask BestBot in #ubuntu-bots.01:38
jribSparkyFlary: have you said what you want to do exactly yet?01:38
usr13the56ker-MouSe: Wait a minute. Do you see the date on these instructions?  "2008"  3 years old!01:38
escottSparkyFlary, if you are familiar with the ubuntu init (upstart) and like the ubuntu release cycle, then you would probably like ubuntu-server over debian01:38
SparkyFlaryyeah, I'll be using it as a vps01:38

blackshirt1SparkyFlary: I think that was a relative thing :D01:39
the56ker-MouSeusr13, it seemed to work smoothly the bcm43xx guide today01:39
escottSparkyFlary, otherwise at the level of core server applications you probably won't find much of a difference between the two01:39

bglazerYeah I was looking for a scripted solution.01:47

escottClientAlive, you can ssh -X and then run gui application and they will appear on the local display but the application is running on the other machine. migrating X applications from one display to another usually requires another X server in the middle to provide a virtual display and usually breaks acceleration01:49

jribbglazer: I see; and you need to have it scripted somehow?01:50
bglazerjrib: Yes, the nvidia-settings GUI is a hassle.01:51
ClientAliveescott: What you said first I think is it. I have a programming project on the desktop but have no physical access to it right now. I don't want to copy the files over and modify them since I use revision control (afraid to freak mercurial out). So I'd like to use ssh to just run a gui app on the desktop but see it and control it here on my laptop.01:51
escottClientAlive, afraid to freak out mercurial??!?!?!?!?!?! its a distributed VCS thats the whole point01:52
bglazerClientAlive: Couldn't you just clone the project?01:52
ClientAliveescott: idk, I don't really know how to use it very well and it's the program I need to work on right now (not learning mercurial)  :)01:52
jribbglazer: right, disper is the only thing I know about.  I think you can pass something like --load-config-file to nvidia-settings (and you could create the config file by saving your settings after using the gui one time).  But I've never used nvidia-settings this way and I've only used disper to do something very simple01:52

escottClientAlive, should just be: hg clone ssh://server:~/path/to/archive, then make your edits and then add the remote spec to the .hgrc so you can hg pull remote01:54
jribClientAlive: I'm sure there's some quick intro to mercurial you could read.  What's the point of using it if you aren't actually /using/ it01:54

bglazerjrib: I've tried doing that to no effect. I don't think it supports hot plugging a new config file in like that. Thanks though.01:55
c2tarunrickbol: which distro are you using?01:55
escottClientAlive, a clone just copies the whole shebang history and all. the only thing you have to do after that is tell the system you cloned from about the new clone you created (the clone tracks the parent, but the parent does not automatically track the clone)01:55

Sn0op2can someone please help me. I need to get something done for school and the application wont start up on my windows laptop or my ubuntu laptop. on my netbook, however, it does work but the screen is too small so when it opens it is huge and i cant do my homework on it. on the netbook it asks me before loading if i want to run the application and there is a java logo in it, if this helps.02:00
escottClientAlive, when you clone desktop -> laptop, then laptop should have an entry in .hgrc for the path to desktop, when you clone back laptop->desktop you would get a brand new copy on the desktop (not what you want) rather you would modify the .hgrc in desktop to reference laptop so you can hg pull. think of clone as being "hg init + setup hgrc to pull in one direction only + hg pull". so going backwards you have done the first bit you02:00
escott just need to do the second02:00
escottClientAlive, the only thing i dont know about hg is how it handles branches in that case. with git you have to specify the branch to pull to, hg might create a branch whenever you pull/clone so you might have to merge or something02:01

hashpuppySyntax error: newline unexpected02:02
ClientAliveescott: thanks02:02
escottClientAlive, you might end up with a branch with hg. it does some "automatic branch creation" in certain situations02:03
ClientAliveahh, I see...  :)02:03
escottClientAlive, in some sense a clone is a branch, its just not on the same computer (or in the same folder)02:04
SnowieEvening all. feels like forever since i was here. Hope all is well and everyone is excited for 12.10. can anyone tell me how to stop the dash showing pr0n even when the folder containing all the files is hidden? cheers02:04
ClientAliveescott: what would be wrong with pull/push?02:04
escottClientAlive, and a pull just syncs the DAGs such that you have might have multiple leaf nodes corresponding to the branches that were in different clones02:04
blackshirt1hashpuppy: that's a bad error, check agains your script02:05
Sn0op2I have a question, I have Thawte CA certificate installed on my windows netbook in order to run an application for school. Can I install this on ubuntu somehow so I can run the application from ubuntu laptop??02:05
ClientAliveescott: I see02:05
escottClientAlive, push is usually discouraged (at least with git) unless the repo is a bare repo (no work directories) because when you push its not clear how to handle any uncommitted changes in the remote02:05
ClientAliveescott: well, looks like I need to quit putting it off and learn how to really use the thing  :) I had only worked on one machine with it for so long. Now I have that second computer and bounce back and forth between them.02:07
NautilusHi's. In my ubuntu 10.04 the hosts file has this line "ff02::3 ip6-allhosts", but in my fresh install of 12.04 that line isn't there.  All I know is that it has to do with ip6 ... anyone know what it does / if I want it?02:08
ushello everybody.. I am having an issue... I cant acces to my session... I star the computer after i put the password It get frozen... I tried to fix using fsck and I get this message.../dev/sda7: superbloque lasta mount time is in the future (by less than a day probably due to the hardware clock being incorrectly set) fixed... and then I cant access one more time02:08
SnowieSn0op2, does the application even run on ubuntu?02:08
Sn0op2never, it didnt work on windows either, i had to install the certificate. but can i do that on ubuntu?02:08
escottClientAlive, when you pull in git you say "git pull remote branchname" and it downloads the remote HEAD and merges it to branchname. hg should have something similar, but worst case you hg pull remote and end up with a branch that is something like remote/branchname and then have to hg merge remote/branchname localbranchname02:08
escottClientAlive, its well worth learning enough to get a basic workflow going02:09
SnowieSn0op2, what i mean is, it runs on windows with the certificate, but im asking if the application itself, whatever it is, would run on ubuntu at all, certificate or not02:09
escottClientAlive, for a single developer you really only need like 3 commands... its just a matter of knowing what they are and running them in the correct order02:10
SnowieSn0op2, is it in the browser or something02:10
ClientAliveescott: for sure. Well, by this point I'll be back at the desktop soon anyhow; but, in the future, it would be nice to know.02:10

escottNautilus, it should be there in 12.04. not sure why it would, but its establishing the ipv6 broadcast ip address02:10
Sn0op2snowie, it is online but i dont think you would be able to access it because you have to be logged into my school account.02:11
Sn0op2Snowie, yes it is in the firefox browser still02:11
ClientAlivepeace out fellas...02:11
escottClientAlive, the other reason to clone is its a free backup :)02:11

SnowieSn0op2, i dont want to access it. ok, so if you have firefox, the certificate is part of the browser config i believe. try google adding a certificate to firefox on linux.02:13

wilee-nileeSnowie, turn off show hidden files in nautilus I would suspect.02:15
ussorry for interrupting02:15
escottus, can you login to the tty "ctrl-alt-f1"02:15
Snowieus, i think it's more likely corrupted desktop session. try starting ubuntu in one of the alternate modes from the login screen (Gnome/classic) and test.02:16
usunfortunatly I am using windows not ubuntu... but I could try02:16
escottus, and how frozen is it? does the capslock or numlock key cause the capslock or numlock light to light up?02:17
Snowieahhh, so if i have need to see hidden files and turn this on, and then turn it off, it should stop showing up. OK, that makes sense.02:17
usnop... I cant use anything, and nothing else works02:17
bkovacsI went to a local Apple store and I noticed that OSX runs very fast compared to my system. Why does OSX seem to run allot faster than Ubuntu on my Intel i5 8GB system?. Is it the hard drive they are using, Are they using a Xeon processor, just curious.02:17
escottus, things that would help to know are (a) does the capslock light come on when you press the capslock, if it does its not really frozen (b) does ctrl-alt-f1 take you to a tty (c) can you successfully reboot with REISUB02:17
escott!sysrq | us02:17
ubottuus: In an emergency, you may be able to shutdown cleanly and reboot by holding down Alt+PrintScreen and typing, in succession, R, E, I, S, U and B. For an explanation, see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Magic_SysRq_key02:17
Nautilusescott: yea, i dont understand why it isnt there in 12.04.  I have 5 other ip6 lines but in 10.04 there is this sixth02:18
escottNautilus, they probably just took out that broadcast host then. i thought you were saying none of your ipv6 addresses were there02:18
Snowiebkovacs, it's an os desinged specifically for a piece of VERY efficient hardware to run that single OS. that's why02:18
escottbkovacs, OSX is faster on different hardware?02:19
Nautilusescott: do you think I should leave it out?02:19
bkovacsCan Ubuntu or any Linux distro be made to run that efficent.02:19
usok.. I dont know as much as you know but I will try and see what happend... Thanks... copying and pasting now to try...02:19
escottNautilus, unless you need that particular broadcast host i would imagine they removed it for a reason02:19
blackshirt1bkovacs: I think yes ..02:20
Nautilusok, thanks!02:20
escottbkovacs, almost all supercomputers run linux of some sort so... yes02:20

Snowiebkovacs, if a team sat down and tuned the os and the hardware for about (um... how many evolutions of mac have there been?) 30-40yrs, then probably02:20
usby the way... any light turns when I press caps lock02:21
usturns on02:21
Snowiewilee-nilee, yeah, thanks mate. makes complete sense now. one of those things you dont even think of til someone points out the obvious02:21
bkovacsTrue but how can you make the Ubuntu desktop run that efficent.02:22
escottus, the capslock, numlock buttons are tied at a relatively low level to those keyboard lights, so even if the screen is non-responsive those lights might be responsive telling you the system is still running, just the way you interact with it has crashed02:22
SpamiclesI used compiz config to enable opacity. desktop freaked out a little bit so I restored to default settings. now unity disappeared. i managed to get unity back but now everything is behaving really weird. how do i actually restore to default settings?02:22
mmnicolas...never seen any mac being "faster" than my linux desktops02:22
escottus, hopefully you know what lights im referring to02:23
SilverSlimermac is slow02:23
SilverSlimerit doesn't matter how fast your processor is02:23
SilverSlimerthe os always feels bloated02:23
escottus, on a laptop the little ones probably at the front of the case, on a keyboard usually on the upper right hand of the keyboard02:23

xanguawilee-nilee: that only reset the unity icons02:23
wilee-nileeunity --reset   Doh.02:23
escottbkovacs, you really have to define efficient, and what it is about the OSX experience that makes you say it was faster02:24
DeltaHeavyHey, my Chrome tabs aren't behaving properly in Unity. They won't stick to any other Chrome window and it's really troublesome. How do I fix this?02:24
wilee-nileexangua, Ah I thought it reset compiz as well then it is on to compiz --replace02:24
escottbkovacs, many times people say "faster" when they really mean "lower latency"02:24
Snowiebkovacs, i think what we're all getting at is you would need a group of people who all know exactly what they need to do to tune ubuntu for one, and only one, bench top piece of hardware. which is why it works on supercomputers so well. As for you doing it, try a masters degree in systems engineering ;) sorry, just the truth02:24
usthanks!!! escott.. I am going to try now..02:24
escottbkovacs, was this even the same hardware... you said this was a machine in the apple store... so if its not the same hardware...02:25
bkovacsJust seemed like when the tech was showing me some applications the application loaded very fast, almost instant.02:25
wilee-nileeSpamicles, alt f2 compiz --replace should reset it02:25
escottbkovacs, probably because the programs had already been loaded and were sitting in ram ready to go02:25
EpicCyndaquilMy config file for weechat disappeared when I lost power on my server, but my log files are intact. What happened?02:25
Snowieescott, yup02:26
Spamicleswilee-nilee, xangua, the unity --reset seems to have brought back the correct window behavior. do i need to do anything else to make sure everything doesnt disappear again?02:26
mmnicolasbkovacs: he probably makes the same demo to every customer every 2 minutes, try opening libreoffice 12 times in a row, I bet the last 11 times will be instant02:26
bkovacsIs  there graphics  better than compiz.02:26
escottbkovacs, go back there and ask him to powerdown the system and turn it back on. then you will see how long it really takes to load an application. in addition that thing probably has an SSD which helps a LOT02:26
denebeimI've got a really weird issue with apt-get anyone up to discuss this?02:27
bkovacsCould be he was running an ssd02:27

DeltaHeavybkovacs: Linux is far more lightweight and faster than Windows or OS X as fact. I can't speak much for Unity personally but look at DE's like XFCE, KDE, GNOME02:28
Snowieyeah, read a really convincing article recently that had SSD as the BEST thing you can do for your pc, even if it is small and unreliable. just need to get the os and most used apps onto it, and the benchtests were ridiculous02:28
bkovacsOSX is not a light weight, but they get it to run as though it was.02:29
SkapareDeltaHeavy: I like Xfce/Xubuntu myself02:29
DeltaHeavybkovacs: Yeah, I have a 40GB SSD and it's faster than anything. Did the computer have an SSD in it? Unless the hardware was the same it's incomparable.02:29

SnowieDeltaHeavy, hang on a sec. let me test.02:34

DeltaHeavySnowie: I'm not sure what that is. I'm on a VM so idk if I can use 3D stuff.02:42
daslinkardAs far as IP address?02:42
escottdenebeim, you could just apt-get remote smartmontools:i386; apt-get install smartmontools02:42

denebeimah I'm unfamiliar with 'remote'  let me man it just a sec.02:43
Nautilusi also have a copying question, for a directory in my /home/myname dir.  I copied the files to a separate drive with 'cp -a' and that seems to have worked (perms are drwxr-xr-x), but when I copied the dir to my new 12.04 install (using -a again) I just got perms of drwx------.  Can I copy them back without that happening?02:43
SnowieDeltaHeavy, think it depends on you VM. when you login to ubuntu, you should see options for desktop. if 3d's not there, then you need to talk to the admins.02:43

EnderTheThirdhttps://dl.dropbox.com/u/162975/mouse.png    You can see that the pointer icon is the wrong size.  Sometimes it goes to the regular pointer with the correct resolution and aspect when I mouse over certain applications.  I think this has something to do with my Korean monitor at 2560x1440.  I'm using a custom EDID because the nvidia driver can't read it from the monitor correctly.  Problem exists in both 12.04 and 12.10.02:45

b2couttsHey, I was messing around with screen configuration to try to get a game running in wine, and now, when I boot into Ubuntu 12.04, it sends me into a tty, and at tty7 it says "Stopping save kernel messages" as the last line. The 3rd last line is starting LightDM display manager. I've tried using xorg.conf.failsafe, reinstalling nvidia (GTX 680) drivers via apt-get nvidia-current, and reinstalling lightdm, but these haven't fixed it. Does 02:46
DeltaHeavySnowie: Thanks for the help! By any chance do you know how to speed up Unity? There seems to be a terrible delay on everything I do. In other DE's, like GNOME 2/3, KDE, XFCE it's responsive but this doesn't feel responsive at all.02:46
escottdenebeim, maybe smartmontools:i386 was selected for install by something, and is pending but blocked02:47
b2couttsI also tried booting in recovery mode, and failsafe graphics mode gave me an error, saying something about there being no monitors02:47
kriskropdDeltaHeavy: yeah it will, everything you see under 'apt-cache show xubuntu-desktop' which you can weed out for just the packages you need, but I don't know what those are off the top of my head :)02:47
SilverSlimerhaving the program's icon bounce like on the mac would give unity users the impression that it's responsive. a small thing like that would help significantly.02:47
SnowieDeltaHeavy, this is why i say im a fan and not a fanboi, because the answer, as far as i can tell, is development time02:47

Snowiecjs, check the format option you have on the usb drive02:56
cjsHow do I do that?02:56
escottBlackWeb, mget, and stop using ftp02:57
denebeimNope same problem.02:57
cjsI did remove all the partitions using gparted, and have the same issue.02:57
BlackWebUsing SFTP02:57
Snowiecjs, ahhh, sec02:57
BlackWebMainly so that all transfers will be secure02:57
Snowiecjs, your creating a liveusb for ubuntu right?02:57
escottdenebeim, what command are you running that gives you the error?02:57
cjsSnowie: Yup!02:57
escottBlackWeb, good02:57
cjsAnd I'm on an Ubuntu 12.04 box that's pretty near up to date. (It's missing maybe a week of patches.)02:58
escottBlackWeb, if you have remote shell scp might be easier02:58
denebeimsudo apt-get install smartmontools02:58
escottdenebeim, and dpkg --get-selection smart* does not mention smartmontools?02:58
Snowiecjs, is there anything helpful here? https://wiki.ubuntu.com/LiveUsbPendrivePersistent02:58
BlackWebwhen downloading multiple files then what do i to the syntax like this (Remote_File Local_File Remote-File Local File)02:58
kriskropdcjs: with gparted, if you were to try and make a partition ont he usb, does it say it needs a table first? I'm unfamiliar with the usb-creator-gtk, but I'll bet it needs a tablet to write the FAT32 partition to.02:59
denebeimcomes back totally empty02:59
kriskropdon the*02:59
denebeimI really think my package list cache is busted.02:59
denebeimbut I don't know how to force it to reload it02:59
escottBlackWeb, you don't specify the local file in any way at all. its just downloaded to the current directory02:59
escottBlackWeb, unless you were asking about scp in which case its just like cp with an "s" at the beginning03:00
BlackWebAlright I'll give it ago Thanks03:00
denebeimI'm also having lockup issues with this machine (hence the smartmon) so I could have some sort of disk corruption.03:00
onemanI'm looking for someone to create a PPA for my project, will pay $03:00
onemanor BTC for that matter03:00
escottBlackWeb, so ftp its "cd whatever_remote; lcd whatever_local; mget folder" with scp its scp remote:~/path ~/path03:00
cjskriskropd: Oh, a partition table is there. Though come to think of it, I didn't check to see if it was old/"DOS" or modern eboot or whatever it is. The USB stick (a Sandisk 32 GB) actually came with a partition already on it that was the first thing I'd tried.03:00
Nautilusescott: yep, looks like my initial attempt was as root, this cp seems to have the right perms!  I get so use to having to sudo stuff03:01
=== luist_ is now known as luist
kriskropdcjs: Additionally to not being familiar with the usb-creator-gtk, it could be a simple user error, like missing a step to enable the button03:01

Nautilusescott: yea i figured that out :)03:02
onemanif anyone is or knows someone who wants to do this let me know03:02

delinquentmeam i missing something to kill this process?03:03
=== Kane is now known as Guest91846
kriskropdescott: wrong guy :)03:03
cjsI think that this is just a massively buggy usb-creator-gtk in 12.04. I'll go do this on an 11.10 machine.03:03
Snowieoneman, there a alot of sites on the web where you can get devs to bid on your job. maybe try one of those. anyone here recommend a site for oneman03:03
escottkriskropd, sorry...03:03
DaeI haven't had any issues with the USB creator on 12.04.1 so far.03:04
escottcjs, did you get a gksudo prompt at some point. presumably you must have to erase the disk03:04
kriskropddelinquentme: try this 'ps -aux | grep WEBrick' it should give oyu the process ID, then type 'sudo kill -9 id_number_here'03:04
Snowiecjs, agreed. i think the fact that it should be fat32 limited to 4g, and you have a 32G drive might be part of the problem though. that's what i got from theere03:04
cjsescott: I was doing this all from the command line after I'd sudo'd -s.03:04
cjsSnowie: Ah, I missed that bit!03:04
escottcjs, there may actually be an issue with it being too large. you can't make the persistence file larger than 2GB iirc03:04
delinquentmethrive   10016  0.0  0.0   7628   940 pts/1    S+   23:04   0:00 grep --color=auto WEBrick     kriskropd which is the process? the 10016?03:05
escottdelinquentme, when you ps aux | grep WEBrick you create a process "grep .... WEBrick" that shows up in ps aux03:05
kriskropddelinquentme: nope, thats the process id that you just ran trying to identify WEBrick03:05
Nautilusthis might be more an apache Q... I see that the vhosts I've created over a couple years are a mix between my user as the owner and root as the owner.  Is one more correct than the other?03:05
delinquentmeescott, OHHHHH03:06
kriskropddelinquentme: are you certain the process name is WEBrick or atleast contains that word in it? its also case sensitive03:06
delinquentmekriskropd, so ive got a web server of the type WEBrick .. which is currently hogging port 300003:06
DaeMake a 4G partition, go from there.03:06
denebeimAh, I found this from a really old post: dpkg --clear-avail but no joy03:06
delinquentmebut I guess WEBrick isnt the right name bc im only getting one process .. the search / grep process03:07
escottdelinquentme, capitalized binaries are unusual try grep -i webrick03:07
cjsescott: I'm not trying to create any sort of persistence file!03:07
kriskropddelinquentme: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WEBrick this was my quick lil lesson for me; I think webrick is actually running under a process for ruby, but I'm only guessing here03:07
Nautilusoh duh, the default vhost is root, so I suppose thats the way to go03:08
Snowiedelinquentme, i a noob at this WARNING, but maybe try ' *WEB* or *rick* and see if there are similar matches03:08
escottcjs, nonetheless you have an image file for the ext4 loopback, and that needs to be <4GB03:08
cjsSnowie: Nope, it still doesn't work with a 3.9 GB partition. Oh, and I just remembered, the last time this happened, I did just boot up an 11.10 system where it worked fine.03:08
BlackWebescott Thank you mget worked like a charm :) problem solved03:08
kriskropddelinquentme: try greeping for 'webrick' all lowercase03:08
delinquentmeescott, thanks .. no beans though03:08
delinquentmeill just run on another port ! thanks guys :D03:09
kriskropddelinquentme: it's quite uncommon to see uppercase on process names03:09
escottdelinquentme, lsof or netstat are able to give you the PID holding the socket open03:09
delinquentmekriskropd, noted .. as well as the nifty grep -i caseinsensitive03:09
kriskropddelinquentme: always learning, thansk for the feedback :D03:09
kriskropdthanks* <_<03:09
cjsescott: If you're talking about one created by usb-creator-gtk, I think not, because I'm giving it the command line option not to create any persistence partition. If you're talking about something set up by the installer on the ISO after it boots, usb-creator-gtk wouldn't know about it.03:09
Snowiecjs, is it just me, or did formatting that drive, creating partitions, then reinstalling ubuntu take an unusally short amount of time?03:10
delinquentmeescott, how would I just the netstat ?03:10
delinquentmekriskropd, you and me both :D!03:10
DaeSnowie, how long does it normally take you?03:10
cjsSnowie: Hm? You mean for me to do it? I got nowhere near that. I just want to take an Ubuntu installer ISO and get this USB stick to boot it.03:10
escottcjs, if you aren't creating the persistence file then its probably not related to the 4gb limit of fat files. but all the livecds made though usb-creator have that casper image file03:11
SnowieDae, I will admit, i have not done it, but if I were stuck, and had to do all of that, i would say at least 20 mins, but then im a noob. cjs is just clearly faster than i am03:11

cjsSnowie, escott: Ha, usb-creator-gtk is broken under 11.10, too. Must be the huge size of this thing that's the problem.03:18
Snowiecjs, sorry mate. just read through that link i posted, and read back through this thread. I pointed this whole conversation the wrong way. my fault. Ive learnt some stuff at least. post your issue again and i will read instad of speak03:18
Hydrogrowwell thank you for the reply Dae03:18
escottcjs, you might try a direct install if the bioses you are using support it, or unetbootin03:19

DaeSorry, Hydrogrow. I tried. :-)03:20
cjsActually, I'm happy with any way of dealing with this  at all, if it can be fairly simple, and leave 8 GB of room on the flash drive for the target install.03:20

Hydrogrowlol thats a myth03:20
Hydrogrowbut true!03:20

kriskropdcjs: why not just make a 4GB fat32 partition with gparted?03:21
Hydrogrowactually everyone out there like the northern lights now that I think of it!03:21
kriskropdcjs: also I apologize if that was already suggested03:21
cjsSnowie: Oh, it wasn't that bad. At least, talking with you, I wasted less than I would have screwing around with it on my lonesome. :-)03:21

Costeelationor restart the lightdm03:23
cjskriskropd: Yup. Always have been.03:23
Snowiecjs, is your image on your HDD or do you have a live cd?03:23
kriskropdcjs: ick, im confused too then xD03:23
cjsSnowie: It's on an hdd. Just a "mini.iso" that I downloaded (though I have a few others, too).03:23
cjsI am totally hating on usb-creator-gtk right now. I've seen issues like this before, but this is now seriously broken.03:24
cjsI bet it's a "drive larger than 4 GB" thing.03:24
SnowieI work in tech support, and sometimes it's better to go round than through. burn it and try here maybe ???? disagreements? better advice?? http://askubuntu.com/questions/163982/run-12-04-from-usb-with-no-hard-disk-usage03:24
escottCosteelation, you can kill gnome-session, or service lightdm restart03:24
Costeelationescott: ok man thanks so much03:25
kriskropdcjs: it shouldn't complain if its just asking for a partition though03:25
kriskropdcjs: and fat32 is not limited to a 4GB partition size, only a 4GB file size03:25
DaeWell, mine works fine.03:26
cjsSnowie: That page is almost exactly what I'm trying to do, but once I can get an installer booted, I'm set. (And I need to do a manual partition setup anyway due to using encryption: I need an unencrypted boot partition, then an encrypted partition with an lvm in it that in turn contains the root and swap.)03:26
cjsThe problem is, how do I boot the installer?!03:26
Snowiecjs, BURN the image03:26
Costeelationescott: im use cinnamon03:26

kriskropdcjs just to be sure, the laptop can boot from usb, right? its in the bios? i dont think any of this is relevant, but worth asking since we're ont he subject03:29
cjsTechnically, not a netbook, but yeah, a laptop with no internal drive. And I don't have any external drives kicking around here either.03:30
DaeMy guess is that I missed a vital piece of info, like which ISO is being used, or which startup disk creator/method.03:30
cjskriskropd: Yup! Boots fine from my old Ubuntu USB install.03:30
Snowiecjs, just a question. saw a way around your issue, and thought it might be a solution. clearly, that solution is not available03:30
kriskropdcjs yeah, your laptop is golden then - you are just having trouble with usb-creator-gtk as it is not cooperating03:31

c2tarunmy KDE screen is turning off in 35 seconds, can anyone please help me with that?03:57
kriskropdNordom: you could try 'which exectuable_name' or 'whereis' even03:57
NordomI am having problems connecting to my phone via usb, and on way was try it in SU mode, and when I log into SU and type adb it doesnt work, but if I am not in SU, it works03:57
escottNordom, "which binary_name"03:58
Nordomescott:  what do you mean?03:58
kriskropdcjs: im glad to know that, because im expecting to go full linux on all my boxes here within a year and its good to know my favorite usb installer works in my future 8)03:58
akishi all. i am considering to buy a new wifi printer. is it sure that HP printers are 100% compatible with linux systems and they 're drivers for any model. i search here http://hplipopensource.com/hplip-web/index.html and i can find the model of the printer i want to buy (3050a or 3070 a) and that wifi is supported. can i trust this site and proceed with the new bu?03:58
Nordomescott:  I am a nub so sorry if I seem daft03:59
escottNordom, the command would be "which adb" i see im late in giving that answer03:59
bazhangakis, check the linuxprinting.org database03:59
Nordomwhich is what I wanted ty!03:59
Nordomescott: : When I logged into SU, and went to the folder where adb was located it didnt do anything, and suggestions on why this happened?04:00
kriskropd"Day changed to 26 Sep 2012 " I really need to get some sleep, good luck all04:00
escottNordom, its failing because when you login as root "sudo -i" you change the working directory to /root but you installed adb to /home/username/whatever so you need to cd /home/username/whatever04:00
Nordomescott: so I need to type sudo -i su ?04:01
escottNordom, you shouldnt be using "su" on ubuntu at all04:01
NordomI see04:01
escottNordom, either sudo adb whatever or sudo -i; adb whatever04:02
Nordomthen this guide is probably not what I want to use then, thank you04:02
escottNordom, im sure the guide is fine except that we use sudo not su04:02
Nordomgot it!04:02
escottNordom, if you see "su" in isolation replace it with "sudo -i" if you see "su -c command" replace it with "sudo command"04:03
cjskriskropd: And it even boots happily. I'm not so sure that the mini.iso installer is too happy, but that's not a problem with UNetbootin.04:04
[TiZ]Hi. Wine's fonts are seriously ugly. There's no anti-aliasing at all, and the fonts look ridiculously jagged. How do I fix this?04:06

chamunksI wonder if you could even use a tool to set all bits on a dvd/cd to 104:46
chamunksbecause I imagine the 1 is what the laser sets when it burns a dot to the cd.04:47
chamunksso basically the opposite of zeroing out a harddrive with dban you could do that with 1's04:47
DaeI wonder what the result would be...empty, or full?04:48
chamunksDae, it would be full.04:48
DaeI'm assuming it would be read incorrectly.04:48
chamunksmy target would not be to re use the disk but to render it unreadable unrecoverable.04:48
loli_stonerno empty04:48
loli_stoner1 isn't full and 0 empty04:48
loli_stonerit depends on what the filesystem says04:48
loli_stonerthen just use sudo dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sdx04:48
loli_stoneror use urandom instead of zero if you want04:49
chamunksloli_stoner, the point in my case / scenario would be to flip all bits to one side04:49
chamunkssort of like a dban (derek's boot and nuke)04:49
chamunkswhich performs a socalled "Secure wipe" of a hard drive.04:50
DaeYou could accomplish the same with a microwave. ;-)04:50
chamunksDae,  you're right and its instant and makes interesting xmas tree decor04:50

It should be 1024x768 as far as i know. I've played a bit with xrandr, but i get an error when trying to --addmode.07:23

PriceyDarkSim: Are you downloading from packages.ubuntu.com with an intent to install later? You want a .deb08:50
DarkSimLooking at unintu-desktop, it doesn't give me deb08:51

johnmDarkSim: does it not come with a cli based browser? links/links2/lynx?08:56

somsippuddle: using default Monospaced 13 in Netbeans here and am not offended by its aesthetics09:00
puddlesomsip i understand you but it still looks ugly like hell09:00
johnmpuddle: you can throw additional fonts into the java_home dir (I think its under lib/fonts, but I forget), they need to be truetype. Then in the java settings (on ubuntu that should pop up in control panel I believe!) you can choose those you install.09:01

somsiptapout: ffmpeg or mencoder are popular I believe09:07
awestrokefrosty: use valgrind and gdb to find what causes the segfault09:08

johnmfrosty: 3.9GB looks anm awful lot to me like a 32bit kernel with PAE09:13
ActionParsnipEagleman: also check with:  sudo lshw -C network09:13
johnmfrosty: you need both 64bit applications, and a 64bit kernel, with a 64bit CPU to have it work, and then it does depend on how you write your application as well (although it's much harder to get wrong on a 64bit box ;))09:14

dr_willisDarkSim:  and thatsa a good thing.12:09
zack6849you cant honestly say you read the whole manual on every operating system youve every used12:09
zack6849You wanna go in and learn things, play around with it a bit first12:09

dr_willisDarkSim:  you login as a user and use sudo as needed12:11
DarkSimSo I can't use the gui as normal, I have to be a regular user12:12
dr_willisDarkSim:  running the gui as root is NOT 'as normal'12:12
auronandaceDarkSim: the gui is meant to be used by the regular user12:12
dr_williseven logging into the console as root would be considered abnormal12:13
dr_willis'login as a user, use sudo as needed' is normal12:13
DarkSimBy normal I meant use the GUI functions12:13

dr_willisyou do NOT want to be running the whold desktop as root.12:13

dr_willisthis approach is sort of a big block of the foundation of linux security12:15
* lotuspsychje likes security12:15
dr_willisi would be very very carefull with even 'gksudo nautilus'12:15
ActionParsnipDarkSim: you don't need to log in as root, not all the processes need to run as root which is what happens when you log in as root12:15
ActionParsnipDarkSim: its not just the apps you launch, its the panels and the desktop itself, and the window manager12:16
ActionParsnipDarkSim: stuff like that, not needed12:16

DaemonicApathyjohn_doe_jr: Since it's VMWare, you should probably adjust the resolution of the guest system, as per http://goo.gl/oOHnS13:36
turtle_escott, my idea (not sure how realistic) was a full desktop environment for both, so i can customise each one to its use13:37
escottturtle_, you can certainly do that. the main issue that linux has with multiple desktops is that currently its really only possible to have one desktop displayed which is accelerated. So if you want unity3d or gnome-shell you can really only do that with one session, the other will be 2d13:38
ab2qikHi, anyone ideas about increasing size of /boot13:39
ab2qikdf -h says its 89% full13:39
ThinkT510ab2qik: gparted to the rescue13:39
ThinkT510ab2qik: or you could just get rid of older kernels13:39
escottab2qik, you can boot a live cd and install it that way, or just identify the particular kernels that are accumulating in /boot and apt-get remove the exact kernel version13:40
ActionParsnipab2qik: uninstall unused kernels and it will reduce used space13:40
ab2qikyeah how would i get rid of old kernels?13:40
zykotick9turtle_: it's possible to run multiple Xorg sessions at the same time (like one on F7 and one on F8) that you can switch between (IF you have 2 users).  there was gdmflexiserver, not sure if light DM has an easy program like that (from TTY you try "startx -- :1" to start a NEW Xsession (DON'T use the same USER, or you run into problems!)13:40
ThinkT510ab2qik: use the package manager, synaptic is great13:40
turtle_escott, not a problem having a 2d desktop :)13:41
escottab2qik, dpkg -l "*linux*3*" will list the various installed kernels with "ii" on the left, you can then "sudo apt-get remove linux-image-3.2.0-23-generic"13:41
ab2qikwhats the command to get kernel versions displayed in /boot?13:42
turtle_zykotick9, will startx take care of everything? window management, shell etc as well?13:42
zykotick9escott: ab2qik from terminal "dpkg -l | grep linux-image" should list all kernels13:42
escottturtle_, the main concern with zykotick9's suggestion would be stability if you are using any proprietary drivers13:42
zykotick9escott: ? the drivers ati/nvidia will apply to each?13:43
ab2qikThanks, got list of each kernel. Now to delete the unneeded ones.13:43
escottzykotick9, frequent switching of the VT with proprietary drivers is probably more likely to cause crashes13:43
DaemonicApathyHmm... "startx --:1" seems to have crashed my tty1 terminal.13:44
zykotick9DaemonicApathy: try alt+f8 now13:44
zykotick9DaemonicApathy: xorg should be running in tty1 (so you can't use it anymore)13:45
ActionParsnipab2qik: if you can pastebin the output of: lsb_release -a; uname -a13:45
turtle_ok, so what would you recommend? so i can know what to look for online13:45
DaemonicApathyNothing, zykotick9. It returned a fatal error, and there's no change in any VT.13:45
ActionParsnipab2qik: we can then advise13:45
zykotick9DaemonicApathy: ahhh, fatal error - so it's NOT working for you :|13:45
ab2qik ActionParsnip: THanks.13:46
escottturtle_, there are a bunch of ways to do it. its really up to you. running another X server on a different tty, using xnest, using vnc, ssh back to localhost13:46
zykotick9DaemonicApathy: fyi i'd try "startx -- :1" notice the space between the -- and the :113:46
DaemonicApathyThat is exactly what I submitted.13:46
DaemonicApathyEr, nvm.13:47
DaemonicApathyBeautiful, I had forgotten the second space. Works like a charm.13:47

DaemonicApathyzykotick9, thanks for the tip. See you all after I reboot.13:49
ab2qikwhereelse shold it have gone in13:49
ActionParsnipab2qik: when you made the paste, the address bar changed. Copy the new address and paste it in here13:50
escottab2qik, unless you are using lvm or luks or btrfs you usually don't need a /boot13:50
escottab2qik, i think grub even boots btrfs these days13:50
ActionParsnipescott: it does :)13:50
ActionParsnipab2qik: ok and a pastebin of the output of:  dpkg -l | grep linux-image13:51
ab2qikso for the moment if kernel deletion can reduce size, will be good.13:51
ActionParsnipab2qik: sure as there are files in /boot relating to the old kernels13:51
ab2qikHere you go sir: http://pastebin.com/w8sSrif313:52
ab2qiki assume make all those kern deletions should reduce size well below 89% usage?13:53

escottsukima, moving ubuntu installations is usually not the best way to do this. better to !clone and copy $HOME and use something like etc-keeper to identify non-standard changes to /etc. In your case you probably have an Xorg.conf file or proprietary driver14:01

escottsukima, you can follow TJ-'s suggestion and use a plain vanilla ubuntu and it will boot, but then some things wont work... like when the wireless card is broadcom and you need wireless internet.14:12
ActionParsnipwrite: after you finish there (press ESC to exit alsamixer), search for 'sound' in dash and make sure the correct device is selected as the output device14:13

chamunkshow do i enable scrolling with middle click on my mouse in unity14:48
writeActionParsnip: what can you tell me about swappiness? i mean, is it better to be higher? so the RAM is less used but hdd is more used? or viceversa... the hdd sould be less used (i have 1 gb of ram)14:48
chamunksthis scrolling by line has got to go.14:48
ActionParsnipwrite: swappiness dictates how often the swap space will be used, if you set swappiness low then the OS will try and keep apps in RAM rather than move them to swap.14:50

|Anthony|dr_willis, MonkeyDust: the only reason i'm even thinking about it as a solution is cause i'm experimenting with multiseat. It seems that the only way i can get each seat to have audio is if i run pulse as a system-wide instance instead of per user.15:30

ActionParsnipDX099: its one of the pains of binary drivers. they are sweet but if they screw up it can be a pain15:32

dr_willisAfflicto:  then login as 'guest' perhaps?16:22
dr_willisAfflicto:  i always set up the same   user/pass on win and linux for samba. makes things easier16:23
Afflictodr_willis: I read something about apt-get install samba, I did that and now I can open the workgroup on the ubuntu. I dno16:23
dr_willisor just use winscp and ssh if you dont plan on transfering stuff a lot16:23
dr_willissamba server lets you have shares on the ubuntu box16:23
Afflictodr_willis: I'm gonna create a new workgroup and see what I can do. I'm probably gonna transfer a bunch yea :P16:24
dr_willisi only use one workgroup in my home lan.16:24
dr_willisi also give the linux users a samba password via 'sudo smbpasswd -a username'16:25
dr_willisyou may want to enable the homes share on the linux box also.16:25
dr_willissamba has a lot of features. ;)16:25
AfflictoI created my homegroup now called 'dreamvoid'. What do I do now? you're going kinda fast :P16:26
AfflictoI created in on my windows machine.16:26
dr_willisyou made a share on the windows box that has 'guest'  permissions?16:26
Afflictono what's a "share"?16:27
dr_willisa homegroup is NOT the same as a workgroup.. its ms's next step in shareing16:27
dr_willisright click on a folder to share it..16:27
dr_williswhat do you expect the linux box to see? no shares = nothing to access..16:28
AfflictoOh right. yes I right-clicked my C drive and gave aeveryone full access. I'd like to set a password on it or perhaps only allow my ubuntu machine access.. somehow?16:28
dr_willisset a password for your user.. is the safest/saneist thing to do16:29
dr_willisand shareing all of c: is a bit overkill16:29
Afflictodr_willis: but I don't want to send 1 terrabyte of stuff to a public folder, then do the same again from public to different locations.16:30
Afflictowould take double amount of time.16:30
AfflictoOk now I don't even see the C drive on ubuntu any longer.16:32
AfflictoI went to files -> network -> the win 7 machine -> 0 items.16:32
jilebedevCan anyone recommend a decent tool to analyze the file system without any mounts for a graphical representation of diskspace usage? So that I can find unnecessary files quickly and delete them?16:33
dr_willisuse ctrl L   to show the address bar and type in the  share name perhaps  Afflicto16:34
Afflictodr_willis: I could find afflicto-pc and went into it but 0 items in it.16:34

eXile_no idea what it means by hphp checkout, and the only files I can find containineg hphp is /usr/bin/hphp16:56
fbernierawole20: no, I tried that. It's not a screen misplacement issue.16:56
ikoniaeXile_: setting HPHP_HOME is not looking for a "src" dir though16:56
Joshundr_willis - unity2d does not even have a reset command16:56

eXile_I set it to /usr/bin/hphp and it doesnt work I get the error in pastebin16:57
al2ciao a  tutti16:57
ikoniaeXile_: the HP checkout is you checking out the sourcecode from git16:57
ikoniaeXile_: that's not a directory, that's a file you've set it to16:57

bizhanMonaHi  we are going to ship our ubuntu boxes in an embedded system. We have developed some packages (autotool packages not .deb) which I need to compile and install them on ubuntu base image. After research I found out is much more complex compare to rpm packaging. Any hint on easier better way to get to this will be greatly appreciated? thx16:59
ikoniabizhanMona: a deb format is %101 the best way17:00
jribbizhanMona: you want information on how to create a proper deb package?17:00
Joshuni'm pretty sure unity2d would just use gcon17:00
ikoniabizhanMona: it's not more complex than RPM builds, it is different, once you setup the build env, it's very easy and quick17:00
Joshuni'll try another account anyway17:01

gordonjcpmikebot: what about it?17:46
gordonjcpmikebot: dd the image to the USB stick17:46
mikebotsayers: Formatting is different from just installing unetbootin over what is on it?17:47

gordonjcpmikebot: don't use unetbootin, it doesn't work properly17:47
ActionParsnipKrenair: and the output of: file /usr/bin/java17:47

gordonjcpmikebot: okay17:48
ActionParsnipKrenair: basically link the file it expects to the java that /usr/bin/java is running to entertain the app, should be ok17:48
mikebotgordonjcp: Thanks!17:48
gordonjcpmikebot: I don't think you need to do the conversion step any more17:48
mikebotsayers: I see. OK, thanks!  I'll try to format it17:48
ActionParsnipKrenair: you get the idea17:49
KrenairMaybe I should sudo ln -s /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-openjdk /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-openjdk-amd64 ?17:49
gordonjcpmikebot: this will wipe anything on the stick, so make a backup if you care about your data17:49
gordonjcpmikebot: unetbootin will probably have wiped it already though17:49
mikebotgordonjcp: Oh OK. So I don't need to format it separately from the instructions you linkd me to?17:49
gordonjcpmikebot: shouldn't need to, no17:49
mikebotgordonjcp: Brilliant, thank you!17:49
gordonjcpmikebot: on stuff like memory sticks, "formatting" isn't really formatting17:50
gordonjcpit just creates a filesystem17:50
gordonjcpcalling it "formatting" is a bit of a misnomer17:50

usr13Newb101:  It would be a pretty complicated affair to move the entire operating system, copying the dada is the easy part, but it would be difficult to talk you through the entire process of getting your data transfered, then changeing the /etc/fastab file so that it would be operational, and then re-installing the grub boot loader in order for it to boot.  We could look around for some sort of tutural, but the bottom line is that it would be easier to back up 18:03
gordonjcpNewb101: quickest thing to do would be to do a clean install onto the 160 and copy your data across18:04
wilee-nileeNewb101, Take a look at clonezilla, the thing to notice is the size of the cloned partition must equal the partition installed to, so you would have to adjust accordingly.18:05
usr13Newb101: ... and there may be a better solution.  If you explain your situation, maybe we could advise you.18:06
wilee-nileeNewb101, the partition cloned to has to be equal or bigger then the cloned partition as a clearer description18:06

webereincWhen I configure using the 'preferences for remote desktop', I have one password there... But if I configure using the gconf-config app, there is a different password there.  Clearing or changing one does not change the other....18:14

zykotick9!root | bizhanMona20:20
ubottubizhanMona: Do not try to guess the root password, that is impossible. Instead, realise the truth... there is no root password. Then you will see that it is 'sudo' that grants you access and not the root password. Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo20:20

DanteviosI seeith a place for the search domain to be added, but my domains are not resolving to thine hosts!20:22
zykotick9john: ask in #freenode20:23
DaemonicApathyjohn: perhaps they decided to be #philosophy instead?20:23
johnI said nothing20:23
DaemonicApathyDantevios: "thine" means "your".20:24
bizhanMonaguntbert: sorry yes I typed my password and the failure was it did not recognize the Dhcpd service.20:24
bizhanMonaSo the question is how could I restart the dhcp client on my system?20:24
=== CookieMan is now known as CPCookieMan
DaemonicApathyubuntu restart dhcp20:24
DanteviosPrecisely my dear boy DaemonicApathy20:24
DaemonicApathyHmm, focus changing needs tweaking.20:25
zykotick9DaemonicApathy: client side, "sudo dhclient eth0" replace eth0 with device20:25
guntbertbizhanMona: ok, that sounds like sudo just works ok - you would have got a different error20:25
DanteviosbizhanMona: dhclient -r, then dhclient eth020:25
DaemonicApathyzykotick9: you're correct. Was googling for a reminder, but the focus changed incorrectly.20:25
WeThePeoplehi, is there a program to filter out double emails on a spreadsheet for ubuntu20:25
guntbertbizhanMona: try   sudo service  isc-dhcpd status20:26
guntbertDantevios: server, not client if I understood correctly20:26
thufir_I have two hard drives, 30gb and 80gb.  Ubuntu 12.10 is installed on the 30gb drive.  How can I install Ubuntu to the other drive only and leave the first drive alone?  https://gist.github.com/379038520:26
ThinkT510!12.10 | thufir_20:26
ubottuthufir_: Ubuntu 12.10 (Quantal Quetzal) will be the 17th release of Ubuntu, Discussion and support until final release in #ubuntu+120:26
Dantevios*shrug* he asked how he could restart the dhcp client guntbert so I don't know20:27
johncan't send to channel.. ugh20:27
thufir_whoops, 12.04 I meant20:27
DaemonicApathyWeThePeople: something like this?: http://goo.gl/Q8ncn20:27
kriskropdthufir_: regardless of version, just don't put it on the other disk then?20:27
zykotick9john: ask in #freenode, it's not an Ubuntu issue.20:27
thufir_kriskropd: right, but how?20:28
WeThePeopledaemonicapathy, no lol20:28
johnzykotick9,  will do20:28
kriskropdthufir_: during the installation wizard, you can select where to install ubuntu20:28
kriskropdthufir_: my bad i misread that, you had already installed it20:28
zykotick9kriskropd: don't offer assistance with beta releases in #ubuntu, that's what #ubuntu+1 is for.20:28
Monotoko2hello guys, can anyone help me with DHCP? I'm trying to network share with it off, in other words I want my iPhone to connect to the shared wifi on my laptop, but get it's IP address from the ethernet DHCP20:28
thufir_ok, let me rephrase.  I'm using Ubuntu at the moment.  How do I run the installation wizard from within Linux?20:28
kriskropdzykotick9: he already said he meant 12.0420:29
WeThePeopledaemonicapathy, ok yeah i guess so20:29
bizhanMonadhclient -r/etho worked, but the sudo service isc-dhcpd status  failed with isc-dhcpd as unknown service...20:29
DaemonicApathythufir: You might try it from within a VM.20:30
kriskropdthufir_: you can't; you can either run through the instlalation all over again on the other disk, or just move all the files over (thought he latter is a bit mroe complicated)20:30
kriskropdinstallation* the*20:30
guntbertbizhanMona: if you need further assistance please clarify if you are talking about dhcp server or dhcp client20:30
DaemonicApathykriskropd: *more ;-)20:30
thufir_huh.  I was sure that there was a way to install Linux from Linux.  After all, the install disc is a live disc.20:30
DominciiCould someone assist me in installing drivers for my graphics card? I'm uncertain it's correctly installed20:31
kriskropdDaemonicApathy: i know, im so bad with typoes :(20:31
Danteviosnm-applet, where can I add a domain to my resolve.conf from it?20:31
DaemonicApathyOk thufir_, would you like the complicated way?20:31
thufir_yes pls20:31
allohakwhen I do an 'ls -l' what does the '+' mean at the end of crw-rw---T+20:31
allohakI'm having trouble googling it20:31
bizhanMonaguntbert: thanks for your help, I was planning to use client and it is working  now. Thank to you and Dantevios20:31
Monotoko2allohak: symbols are annoying to google, i agree20:31
guntbertbizhanMona: glad you got what you needed - have fun with ubuntu :)20:32
klpktHello. I have a problem on my Ubuntu computer, which is that when I connect my headphones, the sound suddenly goes way down. I have learned to fix this through alsamixer, but it's getting tedious to open it and modify the values every time I connect or reconnect the headphones. Is there any way of automating this?20:32
DaemonicApathythufir_: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/FromLinux#Without_CD20:32
Danteviosnp bizhanMona20:32
ParkerMcan someone help me disable network connection manager? I believe it's preventing me from booting, and editing the conf file/moving it didnt work.20:33
Monotoko2allohak: http://cygwin.com/ml/cygwin/2003-11/msg00715.html20:33
thufir_DaemonicApathy:  thanks20:33
DaemonicApathyklpkt: going through the sound portion of the system settings saves the value, in my ecperience20:33
DaemonicApathythufir_: any time.20:33
allohakMonotoko2: Much thanks20:33
kriskropdParkerM: it doesn't sound like thats preventing you from booting, nor should it any ways"20:34
zykotick9ParkerM: does N-M have an entry in /etc/init/ (NOT init.d!)?20:34
Monotoko2allohak: no problem :)20:34
zykotick9ParkerM: i also doubt that's the real issue, perhaps a 1 minute wait to try and find a dhcp server?  are you sure it doesn't boot if you leave it long enough?20:34
klpktDaemonicApathy, Well, the problem is that the value that is wrong is the Speaker value, which I can modify in alsamixer, but each time I reconnect the headphones, it goes down to 0.20:34
thufir_after I install Ubuntu onto the second hard drive as well as the first:  https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/FromLinux#Without_CD  will grub pick up both?20:35
nixiedoesalpinesome of the websites are not opening in ubuntu 12.04.120:35
zykotick9nixiedoesalpine: what browser?  what sites?20:36
paco_hi how can I add KDE desktop to my ubuntu 12.04??20:36
DanteviosParkerM: follow this tutorial http://www.debuntu.org/how-to-manage-services-with-update-rc.d20:36
ParkerMyes there's an entry in /init/, and it doesn't boot after like 30 minutes so i assume not20:36
Danteviosthe service you want to disable is network-manager20:36
paco_no kubuntu add the desktop20:36
nixiedoesalpineam using chromium20:36
ParkerMok ill try that20:36
nixiedoesalpinepaco do sudo apt-get install kubuntu-desktop20:36
zykotick9ParkerM: moving the /init/foo.whatever to /init/foo.whatever.DISABLED should disable the service.20:37
BluesKajpaco_, yes install kubuntu-desktop20:37
DaemonicApathythufir_: I would update the grub after you're done with the install, then restart to find out.20:37
DanteviosParkerM: you're going to have to manage your own ip though through /etc/network/interfaces though if you do that20:37
paco_nixiedoesalpine, no kubuntu, the KDE by it self20:37
ParkerMyeah i saw that in one of the google results20:37
paco_BluesKaj,  no kubuntu, the KDE by it self20:37
zykotick9paco_: fyi installing kubuntu-desktop as apposed to just the correct KDE package will install A LOT more stuff.20:37
BluesKajyou need kubuntu-desktop20:37
nixiedoesalpinepaco do pacman -S kde lulz20:37
kriskropdthufir_: I think you will still need to update your current grub install to let it know there is a second ubuntu install on the other disk20:37
zykotick9paco_: kubuntu-desktop is the EASIEST answer for sure.20:38
paco_zykotick9, but is a little different it used to be apt-get kde core20:38
BluesKajpaco_, unless you just want kde versions of some apps20:38
zykotick9paco_: use "apt-cache search kde" and find the correct name then...20:38
nixiedoesalpineeh guys most of the websites are not opening in ubuntu 12.04.120:38
thufir_thanks kriskropd and daemonicapathay20:38
