Jordan_UEuropaCar: apt and dpkg setup locks to prevent one operation from interfering with another. Since apt-get let you do it, it was a safe thing to do at that time. Does it appear to have freed a signifigant amount of space?00:58

bjrohanActionParsnip: yes openssh server is installed, on the computer I am on, which is also NOT port redirected00:59
EuropaCarJordan_U: well apt-get clean freed up plenty of space, so it worked on that end, but i should note that the upgrade was paused at a certain point00:59
brianjcohenActionParsnip: I believe I had some, but I know that one of the early steps in the dist-upgrade process is to disable third-party sources...00:59
bjrohanActionParsnip: What are PPAs?00:59
ActionParsnipbjrohan: 3rd party sources for packages00:59
bdcsActionParsnip, thank you for the reply. I have followed that guide for my particular card to no avail =(00:59

ubottulinux-image (source: linux-meta): Generic Linux kernel image.. In component main, is optional. Version (quantal), package size 1 kB, installed size 31 kB00:59
EuropaCarJordan_U: the upgrade had paused to ask me if i wanted to make changes to a certain file.. and while it still awaited my input I did apt-get clean.. hope that doesn't affect things00:59

ubottuThe Minimal CD image is very small in size, and it downloads most packages from the Internet during installation, allowing you to select only those you want (the installer is like the one on the !Alternate CD). See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/MinimalCD01:44

VbitzI'm installing ubuntu server 12.10 on a hp proliant DL380 G5 with raid configured. This is rebuilding the server from vmware esxi. I'm nearly done with the install though coming to the install bootloader step installing it on the first harddrive results in a fatal error01:46
Vbitzwhere do I install the bootloader01:46
Jordan_UVbitz: Is this FakeRAID or true hardware RAID?01:47
Vbitzhp smart array01:47
cgtdkwastrel: The net installer will allow you to select packages (such as ubuntu-desktop) in a menu. I've never encountered dselect so I cannot tell you if it is what you're "dumped into", but using the net installer should be straight forward. If you've ever used the alternative installer with the old releases, you'll know the net installer.01:47

blackshirtaptitude was great tools01:51
VbitzThe hardware is certified for ubuntu01:51
Jordan_UVbitz: From quick searches it appears that's FakeRAID, and if in fact Ubuntu's installer lists the individual member drives at all then it's definitely FakeRAID.01:52
blackshirtThey just was lack a little features01:52
Random832so, how do you control what packages are considered manually installed for the purpose of apt-get autoremove01:52
Random832dpkg --{get,set}-selections doesn't seem to do it01:52

VbitzJordan_U: the system it's self is installed and /target is filled it's just the bootloader01:52
Jordan_UVbitz: What options is the installer presenting you for where to install grub's boot sector?01:53
wastreldselect still available in the repos if you're interested in checking it out01:53
ActionParsnipcgtdk: it doesn't handle multiarch so well01:53
ActionParsnip!aptitude | cgtdk01:53
ubottucgtdk: aptitude is another terminal-based front-end to APT. You may encounter problems on multiarch installs (11.10 and higher) as aptitude cannot currently handle the same package with different architectures being installed at the same time. See http://pad.lv/831768 for more information.01:53
blackshirtyes, they just lack support of multiarch...01:54
VbitzJordan_U: It tried to install it automatically to /dev/cciss/c0d0 which is first entire disk01:54
ActionParsnipI use apt-fast it's badass01:54

Jordan_UVbitz: Does it give you an option to chose anything else? If so, what are the other options?01:54

XMLnewbiWhat is the derictory apps are installed in? ect?01:55
blackshirtxmlnewbie, use dpkg -L to list of installed files01:56

VbitzJordan_U yeah there are about 12 items in /dev/cciss01:59

korbengoodmorning y'all02:00
VbitzJordan_U: /dev/mapper has 1 item control02:00
Jordan_UVbitz: Odd. I wasn't expecting that. What device does "mount" say is mounted to /target/?02:01

nshbrownI am using: ssh example.com -R 4800:localhost:80 -i my.pem -l ubuntu but it doesn't seem to do the trick02:02

sqwishyI'm looking for a libssl1.0.0 package for lucid, it doesn't appear to be in the main repo or backports. Is there some other place I could check for it?02:03
VbitzJordan_U: the raid looks to be in use, there are 3 "whole" drives where the server has 7 physical drives02:04
Vbitzthe 8th failed a little earlier due to age02:04
Jordan_UVbitz: Ok, then it's true hardware RAID.02:04

robertzaccourI'm using recordmydesktop to record and its recording 1920x1072p instead of 1920x1080. Anyone know how to get it to record the 1080 part right?02:06
VbitzJordan_U: It worked02:06
Jordan_UVbitz: Great. It seems like that's probably where you wanted grub's boot sector anyway, correct?02:06
VbitzJordan_U: As I said before I'm rebuilding this server from esxi, esxi was installed on /dev/cciss/c0d0.02:07
Jordan_UVbitz: By the way, I'm no longer certain that it's true hardware RAID, but hardware RAID or not that was the correct place for grub's boot sector to go.02:08
VbitzJordan_U: It's now trying to boot into esxi02:08
VbitzI guess I'm better off installing ubuntu on the first drive02:11

bretoliusits the code name03:59
ActionParsnipahmad: see the first link ubottu gave03:59
iFlipI really like Lucid - and the LAMP built in installer. I had it loaded once but I'm rebuilding the server to change the RAID 1 prior config to RAID 003:59
bretoliusahmad: I dont know how to do it on the graphical install, but usually there is an option to just test it03:59

Flynsarmygod dammit Ubuntu is hard to start up on an xps15z. 75% of the time I just get a black screen04:00
iFlipI don't need a full gnome install04:00
bretoliuslike in the pre-boot menu04:00
ahmadthank you ActionParsnip i will look that up :)04:00

ActionParsnipapoplectic: do you feel the learning curve in ubuntu is greater than other distributions?04:01
bretoliusahmad: i know in the text installer for 12.04 you can just test it right in the first menu you are shown, I would look around the live CD for 12.10 if thats the version you are using (since there is not text based installer for that version)04:01
ActionParsnipiFlip: installing Precise will give an OS supported til April 201704:01
apoplecticnot sure ActionParsnip, never used it04:01
iFlipActionParsnip what extent of the support will be lost?04:01
iFlipActionParsnip all support as in never again?04:01
apoplecticor any linux distro for that matter.04:01
iFlipDoes precise have a quick LAMP installer built in?04:02
ActionParsnipiFlip: no support here or anywhere else and zero updates04:02
ActionParsnipapoplectic: then Ubuntu is a good start, it does a lot of hand holding04:02
apoplectichow about fedora?04:02
blackshirtapoplectic, what do you want ?04:03
iFlipActionParsnip does Precise have a LAMP installer? Or do I have to do it manually through ter04:03
bretoliusapoplectic: typically, if you dont understand the differences between distros of linux (pros cons) ubuntu is a really good choice04:03

ahmadblackshirt, I am trying to learn about open stack and how hadoop works. I would like to start by installing OpenStack on a machine.. al though I need some guidance04:04
ActionParsnipValyrym: can you run:  lsb_release -a; uname -a; dpkg -l | egrep 'flash|gnash|swf|spark'04:05
apoplectici've heard bodhi is the best distro for speed ActionParsnip04:05
apoplecticthat sound right?04:05
apoplecticis that plausible?04:05
iFlipActionParsnip that is very disappointing - I love Lucid!04:05

ValyrymActionParsnip: one moment. would you like pastebin link?04:05
ahmadso far i have been reading a lot of tutorials but having someone helping me with the process will be greatly appreciated and welcomed04:05
apoplecticany suggestions, for speed, ActionParsnip04:05
ActionParsnipapoplectic: installing Ubuntu minimal then installing openbox will give a much faster OS04:05
ActionParsnipValyrym: please04:05
apoplecticthanks ActionParsnip04:05
ActionParsnipapoplectic: the less stuff you run, the faster it will run04:06

ValyrymActionParsnip: http://pastebin.com/vKFyrU6904:06
bretoliusahmad: I dont know anything about those programs, but given the fact that what they do is not trivially explained in their wikipedia page, I suspect they are quite complex.  I would look for a good tutorial and introductory resources via google04:06
bretoliusor a good book04:07
ActionParsnipValyrym: sudo apt-get --purge remove flashplugin-installer     then enable the partner repo and install adobe-flashplugin04:07
iFlipActionParsnip How do I install a SofRaid on 12.0404:07
bretoliusfor example wtf is a "cloud computing fabric controller"?04:08
iFlipI've been looking and can't find anything on it04:08
ActionParsnipapoplectic: Ubuntu+Bootloader+Xorg+OpenBox is about 1.2Gb installed as far as I remember04:08
iFlipActionParsnip Does it support SofRaid04:08
ValyrymActionParsnip: affirmative04:08
ActionParsnipiFlip: I've not used it but I know it's around04:08
apoplecticwhy do you suggest opnebox as well?04:08
ActionParsnipapoplectic: its a nice light window manager which doesn't need a desktop to run :)04:08
zykotick9ActionParsnip: ubuntu+lightdm+xorg+openbox?04:09
ActionParsnipapoplectic: fluxbox can do similar too :)04:09
ahmadbretolius, thnx.. i have been doing that and gotten very good at it so far just wish i had someone to help me with my deployment.. np though google and i are lovers :P lol04:09
wastrelbretolius: what's the name of this cloud computing fabric controller04:09
ActionParsnipzykotick9: lightdm is a nice to have, I'd go for slim for lightness :)04:09
wastreloic openstack and hadoop04:09
zykotick9ActionParsnip: lol, as would i.  but i wouldn't recommend slim to anyone in #ubuntu04:09
bretoliusOpenstack Nova, wastrel.  Im just referencing how little this description actually says about what this peice of software does04:10

iFlipActionParsnip Where can I find documents on the termination of support for 10.0404:11
ahmadhadoop is more big data analysis and hdfs clustering system based on mapreduce04:11
zykotick9HackerII: i don't see nick changes - so if that happens, i'm unaware </OT>04:12
bretoliususually cloud is just a euphemism for "Pay us to use our server behind some non-standard software layer :v  v:  "04:12
ValyrymActionParsnip: right, flashplugin-installer is NOT adobe-flashplugin, derp.04:12
ubottuUbuntu 10.04 LTS (Lucid Lynx) was the twelfth release of Ubuntu. Download http://releases.ubuntu.com/10.04/ - Release Info: http://www.ubuntu.com/getubuntu/releasenotes/1004 - Supported until April 2013 (Desktop), April 2015 (Server)04:12
ActionParsnipiFlip: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Releases04:12
ValyrymActionParsnip: restarting firefox, brb04:13
HackerIIzykotick9-  they do it about 3-4 times when they enter04:13
zykotick9HackerII: s/if/when/04:13
bretoliusahmad: So much jargon, so little practical example of what it all means (Not what you are saying, but how those projects talk about themselves).04:13
ActionParsnipiFlip: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/EOLUpgrades04:14
iFlipActionParsnip I've never been so close to an end date... last question, what happens if I'm still running server side at the end of 2015? Will I just stop receiving updates...? Will I ever be able to re-install it if need be after 2015?04:14
ActionParsnipiFlip: yes, no updates but the OS will continue to run. You will be able to upgrade to the next LTS in between04:15
ValyrymActionParsnip: restarted firefox, same issue. video proceeds to freeze with mouse input04:15
ahmadbretolius, yes thats why this research is hard.. the release of the openstack folsom confuses me even more :s04:16
ValyrymActionParsnip: i can pause anything by moving the mouse in a circle anywhere in most applets04:16
iFlipActionParsnip Ahhh, ok - do you know if they are planning on releasing a newer version of a server release for Ubuntu?04:17
ActionParsnipValyrym: you could remove the package and install it manually by putting the .so file in ~/.mozilla/plugins04:17
ActionParsnipValyrym: i dont use firefox so am not too sure04:17
ActionParsnipiFlip: sure, Quantal was released a few days ago (not LTS)04:17
ValyrymActionParsnip: so extract the shared object to firefox's plugin dir04:18
ValyrymActionParsnip: ill give that a shot04:18
ahmadi am creating a bash script to copy most of my configurations from one distribution to another.. besides ~/.gconf  are there any files you would suggest backing up?04:18
iFlipActionParsnip Thank you04:18
zykotick9ActionParsnip: did yo see Eben Moglen's interviews on /. the last two days?  he calls chrome by a different name ;)04:19
ahmadi have already included compiz config, vimrc, and other locations04:19
cowsquaddoes anybody know how to change the default colors for files in terminal?04:19
Arivazhaganhi people04:19
ahmadcowsquad, ~/.bashrc04:19
Arivazhaganhow is ubuntu 12.10 is it worth a upgrade r stay with 12.04??04:20
ActionParsnipzykotick9: who is "Eben Moglen"?04:20
bretoliusI found a few show stopping bugs I didnt care to work out and rolled back myself04:20
ActionParsnipArivazhagan: depends if you like LTS-ness04:20
ahmadthere are examples of some custom ones on the web plus you can easily configure these things yourself using the PS1 variable04:20
bretoliusI would test out a live CD first Arivazhagan04:20
wastrelbretolius: what bugs04:21
zykotick9ActionParsnip: doesn't matter.  (actually he's a better representative of the "free" software movement then RMS)04:21
bretoliusI will eventually jump, but only after it can see BOTH my cd drives without me having to do a lot of work04:21
ArivazhaganActionParsnip, i am not a big fan of LTS04:21
ActionParsnipzykotick9: i don't listen toall the politics stuff that goes into linux. I just get on with using it04:21
bretoliuswastrel: I got a lot of shutdown errors, and the boot sequence seemed off.  Also, my CD drives were not working right.  Lots of things were crashing too04:21
bretoliuswastrel: where 12.04 was basically smooth sailing04:22
ActionParsnipArivazhagan: then if you upgrade you'll get all the latest gumf with all the whizzy new bells and stuff (assuming you use Unity)04:22
zykotick9ActionParsnip: i know.  that i can see repect you in the morning ;)04:22
ActionParsnipzykotick9: hehe04:22
ArivazhaganActionParsnip, i am using Unity how is the performance some people saying it's slow04:22
zykotick9ActionParsnip: s/that/and/ ;)04:23
bretoliuswastrel: also Unity seemed really sluggish on a fairly decent machine that runs perfectly under 12.0404:23
ActionParsnipArivazhagan: all I can say is try it. It's ok here but I clean install each new release04:23
bretoliusArivazhagan: its great on 12.04, I had a bad 12.10 experience, though I dont know if I am a minority or not04:23
ahmadstrange i haven't noticed any performance issues with unity, although i do have a good ultrabook04:23
ActionParsnipArivazhagan: it seems to be pretty individual04:23
ArivazhaganActionParsnip, ya me too always do clean install04:24
OerHeksArivazhagan, bretolius get a SSD, that boost up performance04:24
bretoliusOerHeks: I have an SSD, boot times are great04:24
ArivazhaganOerHeks, ya SSD always super fast04:24
cowsquad_anybody knows how to change the terminal colors for files?04:24
ahmadcowsquad_, please refer to i said a while back regarding ~/.bashrc and PS1 variable04:25
ActionParsnipbretolius: try xpud, boots in 3 seconds on PATA HDD with single core CPU and 2Gb DDR2 RAM04:25
pclov3rIs it ture that ubuntu has poor AHCI support?04:25
OerHekspclov3r, no.04:26
ActionParsnipThe Advanced Host Controller Interface (AHCI) is a technical standard defined by Intel that specifies the operation of Serial ATA (SATA) host bus adapters in a non-implementation-specific manner.04:26
bretoliusActionParsnip: my startup times are fine! :v04:26
ActionParsnippclov3r: never had an issue04:26
zykotick9OerHeks: does 12.10 still have hibernate diabled by default?04:26
pclov3rI know what it is04:26
Arivazhagancowsquad, Edit->ProfilePreference->Color04:26
ActionParsnippclov3r: never said you didn't04:26
bretoliuspclov3r: I had some trouble in 12.10 with some AHCI deveies, but I have no idea if its due to the AHCI support or not04:26
OerHekszykotick9, yes, i thought so, cannot check it here, i am on Kubuntu.04:27
bretoliuspclov3r: best to try a live CD or USB to see if your device is supported or has trouble04:27
ValyrymActionParsnip: it seems like a rendering issue, for example in soundcloud, audio plays, but the browser freezes graphically, and from input if i continue to move the mouse04:27
pclov3rtired to install but had major issues04:27
ActionParsnipValyrym: you may need an older flash, I've seen people with certain CPUs (I think it was CPU) that needed to use the older flash version04:28
bretoliuspclov3r: can you tell from what?04:28
ActionParsnipValyrym: have you tried chrome?04:28
robertzaccourmy monitor is 1920x1080, but recordmydesktop records in 1920x1072. Anyone know how to fix this?04:28
pclov3ri believe AHCI04:28
ValyrymActionParsnip: firefox jumps to 60% cpu and X jumps to 40% cpu04:28
ValyrymActionParsnip: when i move my mouse in a flash window04:29
OerHekszykotick9, you can test if your machine is capable > http://ubuntuportal.com/2012/05/simply-way-to-enable-hibernate-feature-in-ubuntu-precise.html  >> sudo pm-hibernate04:29
pclov3rnot booting corretly to the cd drive umonuting itself04:29
bretoliuspclov3r: can you try your controller in SATA Mode?04:29
zykotick9OerHeks: thanks!  but i don't use ubuntu.04:29
bretoliuspclov3r: also, did you do a consistancy check on the CD you were using?04:29
pclov3rcd was fine04:29
ValyrymActionParsnip: its a little less so outside of a flash window04:29
pclov3ri use UEFI tho04:29
wastrelcowsquad: seems to be related to dircolors, try man dir_colors04:29
bretoliuspclov3r: you did a consistancy check on the contents of the disk?  the download can get messed up too04:30
OerHekszykotick9, it is disabled by default, too many machines doesn't support it properly04:30
pclov3rthe disk was fiine04:30
pclov3rmatched hashes04:30
pclov3rit was fine04:30
pclov3rbut i installed debain without any problems04:30
bretoliussorry was unclear, because simply verifying a disk after burn tells you little about the cotents, had to check :)04:30
ActionParsnipValyrym: thats all I can recommend, maybe others can help04:30
pclov3rwhich uses much older packages04:30
zykotick9OerHeks: thanks!  sorry i didn't really mean to signal you out on that question!  MY bad!  sorry!04:31
bretoliuspclov3r: did the live CD enviroment work right?04:31
bretoliussee all your drives etc?04:31
ValyrymActionParsnip: doing more research into this seems to be a kernel issue04:32
pclov3rit did yes04:32
bretoliusit seems odd that it would not install then04:32
pclov3ri have to use AHCI04:32
pclov3ri refuse to use IDE or lagency mode04:32
bretoliusi understand, but as a way to troubleshoot04:33
bretoliusit can be a way to help isolate and issue04:33
pclov3rjust was curious but it's ok as i'm on debian04:33
robertzaccourmy monitor is 1920x1080, but recordmydesktop records in 1920x1072. Anyone know how to fix this?04:33
chid2how can I find out what OS my server is running?04:35
chid2uname -o just says GNU/Linux04:35
zykotick9pclov3r: "lsb_release -a" might give you more detail04:36
robertzaccourI plugged my pc into my tv and it says its a dvi connection, but its an hdmi cable. could this be causing the 1920x1072 outputs from recordmydesktop?04:36
ahmadanyone has any good resources for cloud computing and in particular openstack, hadoop? any book suggestions would also be very appreciated :)04:37
zykotick9pclov3r: fyi debian is supported in #debian or freenode or OFTC #debian officially04:37
F^3Good evening04:38

zykotick9F^3: awesome is a tiling WM - but i wouldn't recommend that to my worst enemy ;)  it's what i use BTW.04:39
dengpan_1920x1080 is best04:40
ahmadbretolius, lol it honestly did not occur to me.. ty (its a bit late here i have been up for a while)04:40
F^3zykotick9, Why not recommend it to anyone?04:40

bretoliusahmad: yeah, np I understand04:40
bretoliusahmad: glhf :)04:40
ahmadsmoke break, afk04:40
zykotick9F^3: it's the most difficult WM i've ever used.  but the rewards are high - if that's what you are looking for...04:40
bretoliusF^3: would you count xmonad a windowing WM?04:41
bretoliuserr you know what I mean04:41
F^3bretolius, Yes.04:41
robertzaccourdengpan_, I know, my monitor is 1920x1080, but recordmydesktop outputs video 1920x1072, making it impossible to edit04:41

Flynsarmyin 12.10 if i have a nautilus window open (any directory) and i right click on teh nautilus icon in unity sidebar and click 'home folder', instead of opening the side folder it just focuses on the nautilus window that's already open. there a fix for this?04:55
SultansElephantlasher: you can dual boot i guess but for what purpose do you need the server04:56
Jordan_Ulasher: It's the GUI packages which aren't supported for as long, not the kernel.04:56
lasherI thought my main concern were security patches which would be included in the server edition04:57
pgdacShould i stick to 12.04 or just go for 12.10?04:57
SultansElephantpgdac: stick to 12.04 if youre not willing to do a fresh install imo04:57
Space-DuckIs antivirus needed for linux? If you are NOT downloading random files from the web and all your software comes from trusted repos. Are you relatively safe?04:58
Jordan_Ulasher: And there won't be security patches to GNOME, Firefox, X, etc.04:58
pgdacSultansElephant:  I have no problem installing fresh  os, but the thing is that is it stable or giving problem ?04:58
Jordan_U!virus | Space-Duck04:58

ix_Jordan_U, would it be easier to make a cd with ubuntu and boot it on that macbook pro? I have a few linux cds around but they don't boot on the thing and I thought the optical drive might have a problem06:19

Flynsarmysigh. can't even boot anymore06:20
saotomeinsomniac_lemon, would love to use chrome. however, as I have read, only chromium and firefox support the webapp integration feature.06:20
ix_Jordan_U, I've formatted it with gpt partition table, but what is that about efi?06:21
insomniac_lemonOh, I see06:21
insomniac_lemonsaotome, wait "So far, most of the engineers' efforts have focused on Firefox, but Pete Goodall (a product manager at Canonical) said Chrome and Chromium support is also in the works."06:22
insomniac_lemonSo, maybe just not yet?06:22
Jordan_Uix_: For a USB drive to be bootable via EFI it needs to have an EFI System Partition, which is a FAT32 partition with a GUID of C12A7328-F81F-11D2-BA4B-00A0C93EC93B (though GParted probably has a name for it rather than having you enter that GUID).06:23

magn3tsFlynsarmy: in all seriousness, ata errors are related to your hard drive and should likely be of moderate->severe concern06:27
magn3tsespecially if your system isn't booting, though obviously the drives not dead since it's booting at all... what's your HDD setup?06:27
Jordan_Uix_: I can't find an option in GParted to do it. Just create a FAT32 partition in GParted and then I'll tell you how to set its GUID properly via gdisk ("sudo apt-get install gdisk").06:27
ActionParsnipFlynsarmy: I've had that, i replaced the HDD06:28
ix_Jordan_U, ok, fat32 partition created06:28
Flynsarmymagn3ts teh hdd is fine. it's a dell xps 15z (nvidia optimus) laptop. dual booting with with windows. windows is fine, my old ubuntu install was fine. it's just the new 12.10 install that's scrwing up06:28
magn3tswait, wait, he shouldn't have to make the partition manually, just initializing the disk with a new GPT table should do that if the tool is worth its wait.06:28
magn3tsFlynsarmy: :/ hm06:29
insomniac_lemonI've already tried Disk2vhd and similar software, but it freezes windows probably because it doesn't like that it's trying to access partitions it is using. I'm definitely interested in software for Linux that can make a drive usable on a VM06:29

effigyhey... just finished upgrading to the new release. i guess i have a question. is there no more like toolbar with folders organizing the installed programs? i can start them through the terminal... but am i missing something? i see shortcuts for firefox, settings, etc.. in the new menu bar on the left07:13
Jordan_Uix_: Everything looks correct at the moment though.07:13
ix_well, I made the gpt partition table again, created a fat32 partition, sudo gdisk /dev/sdb, sudo mount /dev/sdb1 /mnt/, sudo grub-install --removable --target=x86_64-efi --boot-directory=/mnt/boot/ --efi-directory=/mnt/07:15
ix_unmounted /mnt, tried the usb stick in the macbook, but it did not take it07:16
=== scouts is now known as liam
=== liam is now known as seascoutliam
Jordan_Uix_: OK, how old is this macbook? There was a short period of time a few years back where Apple was shipping 64 bit machines with 32 bit EFI firmware.07:17
ix_Jordan_U, it's from 200607:17
arunkumar413the ubuntu dash doesn't show when i move the mouse to the left edge of the screen07:17
foobArrrI have problems with distorted sound and echo with vlc. Often sound is only distorted for the first few seconds or a minute of a file, then sound is normal. when I skip to the next song/video, sound is distorted again. I tried recording it with Sound Recorder, but I can't get that to work.07:20
Jordan_Uix_: Then you might have a machine with that odd combination.07:21
ix_Jordan_U, so what should I do?07:22
ix_Jordan_U, I see there is a grub-efi-ia3207:23
Jordan_Uix_: Try "sudo apt-get install grub-efi-ia32-bin" and running "sudo grub-install --removable --target=i386-efi --boot-directory=/mnt/boot/ --efi-directory=/mnt/"07:23
Jordan_Uix_: And the really nice thing is that since you've run both commands, this USB will (hopefully) be bootable from both 32 bit and 64 bit [U]EFI firmware.07:24
robertzaccourCould someone help me figure out how to record from my speakers? I already got my screen and mic with ffmpeg -f alsa -i pulse -f x11grab -r 25 -s 1920x1080 -i :0.0 -acodec pcm_s16le -vcodec huffyuv -sameq Screencast.avi just gotta get my speakers in there and I'm set.07:25
effigycan anyone tell me how to access a list of installed applications to run on the new release? i'm clueless, did they take that away? i'm running xchat by typing 'xchat' in the terminal.. but where is the list of programs to use?07:25
ix_Jordan_U, and I was thinking about deleting the old files :)07:25
ix_Jordan_U, ok, I did that07:25
Jordan_Uix_: Great now try booting from the USB.07:25
ix_Jordan_U, it still does not work, I think this thing is broken07:26
Jordan_Uix_: Please pastebin the gdisk -l and find output again.07:27
afro1hi guys, i'm trying to use webapps but no integration of gmail, do you have idea where is problem? i did install unity-webapps-*, chromium can't ask me on gmail..07:27
LafiirIs there a name or official description for the list of devices to play/record from shown in the Sound Settings window?07:28
ix_Jordan_U, you were right about the efi32, the model of this macbook pro is a121207:29
ix_Jordan_U, http://pastebin.com/02KMAddV07:29
Jordan_Uix_: That all looks right :(07:30
ix_Jordan_U, I thought so07:30
gabkdllyeffigy, hit the super key, also known as the windows key, or click on the Ubuntu logo in the top left hand corner07:31
ix_Jordan_U, thank you for your effort, if you have any more ideas, I'm all ears :)07:31
GVRVAnyone, help with http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2073770 please?07:31
gabkdllyeffigy, the new interface is called Unity http://unity.ubuntu.com/07:32
effigygabkdlly: i see that, but it's a search... are you supposed to type in the program you want to run? there's no collected organized list?07:32
bird_hi body :)07:32
swex_can anybody explain me why my ubuntu ignoring module blacklist setting?07:32
bird_I had got some trouble07:32
Jordan_Uix_: Try asking in #grub. Include in your question the exact grub-install command you ran, the model of mac, and that most recent pastebin link. Be patient though, #grub is low traffic but grub developers will often chime in if they're around so it's high quality.07:33
Jordan_Uix_: And if you don't get an answer today try again tomorrow.07:33
NathHello all, I was wondering if anyone can help me with a TV tuner card install??07:33
bird_When I installed the Ubuntu I move the part of windows's C:07:33
gabkdllyeffigy, There might be a list somewhere that I am not aware of, but the idea is to be able to find and start programs with few keystrokes.07:34
bird_and now I can't enter my windows07:34
bird_does anyone can help me ?07:35
effigygabkdlly: well, for example i don't know what audio programs are installed... how can i find out to listen to music? i know how to run a few programs from the terminal... but i don't remember everything that's installed.07:35
gabkdllyeffigy, So if I want to set up my printer, and I don't know what the program is called that manages that, I start typing 'printer' and within a few key strokes the application that I was looking for pops up07:35
GVRVbird_, Try moving that part back, or I'm afraid to say, nothing much can be done07:35
bird_GBRV,thank you ,but I had installed ubuntu after the windows' loader partion07:37
gabkdllyeffigy, doing a search for 'music' worked pretty well for me, gave me rhythmbox, and a couple others07:37
effigygabkdlly: wow, really? okay, i see what you're saying. that's a big leap. i haven't upgraded releases in a few years. do people like this? i think it's crappy.07:37
bird_is there any tool or method to update the windows bootmbr now ?07:38
gabkdllyeffigy, some people like it, some don't, but it looks like it is going to stay the default for a while07:38
ix_Jordan_U, my internet died and I'm back in Debian, it seems to work here for some odd reason07:38
gabkdllyeffigy, gnome-shell serves a similar purpose, which I hear is now the default in Gnome 3 and up07:39
effigygabkdlly: is there any sort of shortcut i can make to launch programs? this is kinda annoying.07:39
Jordan_Uix_: Try asking in #grub. Include in your question the exact grub-install command you ran, the model of mac, and that most recent pastebin link. Be patient though, #grub is low traffic but grub developers will often chime in if they're around so it's high quality. And if you don't get an answer today, try again tomorrow.07:39

kracekumarI have a liveusb runs ubuntu, I am able to boot in normal pc, but in macbook when I hit alt/option and try to boot, I get missing operating system error07:41
gabkdllyeffigy, if you want to keep using unity, you can make the applications that you use often 'sticky' in the menu.  When you have the application started, right click on its icon on the left of your screen, and choose "Lock to launcher"07:41
Jordan_Uix_: That precludes the theory that it was the wrong filesystem then :(07:41
effigygabkdlly: that's the best i can do? can i at least make folders on the launcher? i can't believe there has been such a drastic change.07:42
LafiirWhich part of Ubuntu is responsible for detecting sound devices, as shown in the Sound Settings window? Said devices are rapidly changing/updating: the Speakers (analogue stereo)  alternates with Headphones and LineIn does with Microphone. This breaks my sound down to a constant crackling noise several times per second. It was fine with 12.04 so updating to 12.10 broke something, I just don't know what.07:42
NathHello all, I was wondering if anyone can help me with a TV tuner card install??07:43
robertzaccouranyone here familiar with ffmpeg commands?07:44
wormrobertzaccour: Yes? What do you want to do?07:44
Nathhow do i check to see if ubuntu can see my hardware07:45
gabkdllyeffigy, there are some other desktops available if this is a dealbreaker for you. Off the top of my head: xubuntu-desktop, lubuntu-desktop, kubuntu-desktop07:45
robertzaccourworm, so far I've got it set up to where I can record the screen and from my mic, all that is left is the analog speakers. Here's where I'm at as of now ffmpeg -f alsa -ac 2 -i plughw:1,0 -f x11grab -r 30 -s 1920x1080 -i :0.0 -acodec pcm_s16le -vcodec libx264 -preset ultrafast -threads 0 output.mkv07:45
gabkdllyeffigy, I gotta split, best of luck to you, bye07:46
effigygabkdlly: yeah i'm probably going to switch distros, but thanks... before you go recommend a new distro!07:46
wormrobertzaccour: Then, what's your question?07:47
robertzaccourworm, What do I need to do with that in order to get my analog speakers recorded directly?07:47
Nathis there a device manager in ububtu07:48
Flynsarmynath system monitor07:48
CalinouNath: ubuntu doesn't have any eyes, although you can use system monitor07:48
Flynsarmynm not what you were asking for07:48
Calinouno operating system can see...07:48
gabkdllyeffigy, all packages I just listed are full blown Ubuntu derivatives/siblings, so a lot of what you already know about Ubuntu will transfer, plus since they are in the repos you can switch back and forth without having to reinstall07:49
arunkumar413i'm unable to mark this package for installation in ubuntu 12.10:  nvidia-17307:50
Nathso how do i install drivers07:50
gabkdllyeffigy, If I had to switch right know, I would probably go with xubuntu, I have used it before and like it pretty well07:50
ASHER1i need please help about install php in ubuntu 8.0407:51
effigygabkdlly: i know you said you're leaving so feel free to go... but how are you guys dealing with this new structure? there's no program list and you're expected to basically google your computer for applications?07:51
effigyi think i'm missing something, or i hope i am.07:51
ASHER1i try install something in ubuntu but i have error someone can please help me07:51
gabkdllyeffigy, some people really like Linux Mint, but I know very little about it. It is also an Ubuntu derivative, comes in several flavors, I am unsure what they ended up doing with/without Unity07:51
ASHER1this my error07:51
ASHER1PHP version07:51
ASHER1    version 5.2.8 is required and you are running 5.2.4-2ubuntu5.2607:51
crizisgabkdlly, there's zero reason to install badly supported mint as you can install cinnamon on ubuntu if you really want to use that07:52
Jimster480-Laptogabkdlly: it doesnt have unity07:52
Jimster480-Laptothey use a desktop called cinamon i believe07:52
Jimster480-Laptoidk i have several friends that use it without a issue crizis07:52
Jimster480-Laptoi mean if you take a look at the 12.10 release and the current issues...07:53
Jimster480-Laptono distro is perfect.07:53
gabkdllyeffigy, I find Unity makes me less dependent on my mouse, which for me is a really good thing since I suffer a little from repetitive strain, and I much prefer my ergonomic keyboard to my mouse07:53
gabkdllyeffigy, over and out07:54
wormrobertzaccour: Do you have oss or alsa-oss?07:54
crizisnever upgrade - always do clean install - save yourself from problems07:55
nunneHaving problems with prop. nvidia drivers after I updated to 12.10. I have read about the missing deps (so I have installed linux-source and the headers), but I'm still getting the error where I get wrong resoluton, no unity taskbar, no window decoration and so on. Anyone have any ideas??? I have tried nvidia-current, nvidia-current-updates and nvidia-experimental-30407:55
wormrobertzaccour: Or have you tried just to record the voice by ffmpeg?07:55
crizisand better yet, stick to the LTS releases07:55
arunkumar41312.10 is buggy and slow07:55
criziswhat did you expect from non-lts release? :)07:55
crizisevery non-lts has been a disaster07:55
DaemonicApathyAt first, anyway.07:56
insomniac_lemonarunkumar413, maybe it's just Unity that makes it seem like it?07:56
FlyingElvisnunne: i have an nvidia card also and had the same probs with a clean install07:56
FlyingElvisthis is how i fixed it07:56
ASHER1someone tell me please how i install PHP version07:56
ASHER1<ASHER1>     version 5.2.8 is required and you are running 5.2.4-2ubuntu5.2607:56
FlyingElvisinstall a clean 12.04, install the nvidia drivers, make sure theyre working in 12.04 and then do a upgrade from 12.04 to 12.1007:56
robertzaccourworm, what do you mean?07:57
arunkumar413insomniac_lemon, yes, its the unity07:57
sdollinsASHER1: what version of Ubuntu do you have?07:57
Swamptsup ppl07:57
nunneFlyingElvis, I'm coming from 12.04 actually. and had working nvidia-drivers (nvidia-current) :(07:57
bretoliuscrizis: I have seen this advice a lot.  IS there any way to preserve the software you have installed or at least have them re-installed in some automated fashon?  I already keep /home on a separate drive07:57
FlyingElvisand you did the upgrade?07:57
arunkumar413insomniac_lemon, i system has 4gb ram and a dedicated nvidia geforce graphic card, dual core processor, still the unity is slow07:57
insomniac_lemonarunkumar413, maybe try cinnamon?  http://cinnamon.linuxmint.com/?page_id=6107:57
crizisbretolius, yes, you can dump out installed package lists with dpkg07:58
insomniac_lemonCinnamon is Gnome 3 adapted to be more like Gnome 207:58
nunneFlyingElvis, yeah. I upgrade through Update Manager07:58
arunkumar413insomniac_lemon, previously i had 12.04 which was good07:58
FlyingElvisnunne: i am running kubuntu tho....i frickin hate unity07:58
crizisbretolius, just a minute07:58
bretoliuscrizis: ill check it out07:58
bretoliuscrizis: ok07:58
Jimster480-LaptoClean install really sucks crizis. Who the hell wants to repeatedly install their OS? Thats worse than Windows XP LOL07:58
nunneI even had the buggy wrong colors in youtube, so i know the nvidia drivers where "working" hahaha07:58
FlyingElvisunity is an abortion of a desktop UI IMO07:58
sdollinsASHER1: It looks like you're running Hardy. That's the latest version available. You would either need to manually install a later version or upgrade your OS.07:58
crizisbretolius, "dpkg --get-selections > mypackages.log" and to restore again, "dpkg --set-selections < mypackages.log"07:59
krababbelnunne: I upgraded to quantal about a month ago, no nvidia problems, I used aptitude and have no gnome or kde though07:59
nunneFlyingElvis, I actually like Unity ;) But what buggers me is that installing the source and headers seems to have helped most people.. but not me :(07:59
bretoliuscrizis: awsome advice!  Ill take note07:59
Jimster480-LaptoFlyingElvis:  youare completely correct when you say that.07:59
crizisJimster480-Lapto, considering installing ubuntu takes 15 minutes, and if you dump out package lists with dpkg and have /home on separate partition, this is 20 minute process every 6 months08:00
FlyingElviskde is just so much more complete and you have total control over the computer, with unity, i cant say that08:00
bretoliusFlyingElvis: yeah, coming to 12.04 after windows 7 and os x for a long long time, Unity Is quite swell08:00
Nathi type this "apt-get install get patchutils lsdiff libproc-processtable-perl build-essential"08:00
crizisJimster480-Lapto, and my recommendation still is to SKIP every non-lts release and STICK TO THE LTS and not to upgrade to these broken mid-releases08:00
Naththen :08:01
bretoliusFlyingElvis: I dont want total control so it works well for me.  total controll sounds like a lot of busy work08:01
NathReading package lists... Done08:01
NathBuilding dependency tree08:01
NathReading state information... Done08:01
Jimster480-Laptocrizis: I guess. But i mean if you look at 10.04 that was a broken LTS release.08:01

FlyingElvisbretolius: i am a recent win7 to buntu convert, and i tried ubuntu12.04 and now 12.10...and kde rules it08:01
crizisJimster480-Lapto, bull, it's a fantastic release and still running it at ton of servers08:01
ASHER1sdollins you can please tell me how i install php version 5.2.8?08:01
Jimster480-Laptocrizis: thast the version that i came from. Now i am on 10.10. And I patch it myself and have my own custom kernel with optimized code aswell. Which I am currrently trying to get put into the official kernel.08:01
sdollinsASHER1: My suggestion would be to upgrade your OS.08:02
sdollinsI'm sure a lot of the software you have is outdated.08:02
Jimster480-Laptocrizis: who uses Ubuntu servers?08:02
bretoliusFlyingElvis: to be fair, I have never tried KDE.  It does not look as visually appealing, but I have heard good things from smart trustworthy people08:02
Nathcan anyone explain why i get that?08:02
crizisidiotic question tbh08:02
Jimster480-Laptocrizis: Also it had seriuos issues with Sleep and hibernate.08:02
bretoliusFlyingElvis: i should give it a shot08:02
crizisquite a many and ubuntu server is nowadays more deployed than RHEL08:02
sdollinsHardy is still supported but it was released in 2008.08:02
GVRVCan anyone tell me why I'd be getting dependency errors like http://dpaste.com/816191/ using apt ?08:02
krababbelbretolius: it is a lot of work if you need every feature provided by desktop suites08:02
Jimster480-Laptocrizis: idk why you would ever pick a bloated release like ubuntu for a server lol08:02
sdollinsJimster480-Lapto: My work has hundreds of Ubuntu servers in production.08:02
=== arashOio is now known as arashO|o
Jimster480-Laptocrizis: its just fail all around08:02
FlyingElvisbretolius: go look up vids of kde and kubuntu on yotube, compare them to unity, and come back and tell me that08:03
crizisyou're really clueless it seems08:03
Jimster480-Laptocrizis: you can simply run CentOS or a Fedora server.08:03
crizisminimalistic server install is something around 100mbit08:03
nunneFlyingElvis, will try to purge the nvidia packages and see if it makes any difference installing them again after that :P08:03
FlyingElvisok nunne08:03
sdollinsWe use CentOS and Ubuntu. Mostly Ubuntu these days.08:03
Jimster480-Laptocrizis: Ive been running linux servers since FC 3.1.208:03
crizisand ubuntu is just way better. rhel-variants are nightmare to maintain08:03
wormrobertzaccour: Which kind of sound card driver are you using? ALSA/OSS/PULSE08:03
sdollinsSome software we use requires RHEL-variant which is why we still use it.08:03
bretoliusFlyingElvis: Ok, ill check them out.  By no means do i disagree with the powers of KDE, just saying Unity works well for me.  I dont see the common criticism against it08:03
Jimster480-Laptocrizis: RHEL is a nightmare to maintain? Why? Because you dont know how to use Yum?08:04
robertzaccourworm, I think alsa. got the ffmpeg command from a youtuber08:04
FlyingElvisbretolius: use what works for you08:04
sdollinsI know another company in the same industry who runs Ubuntu on all of their production servers.08:04
insomniac_lemonJimster480-Lapto, why are you still running 10.10? If it's because of Unity, you could always try 11.04, Natty Narwhal, the last version before that used Gnome 2 and not Unity08:04
wormrobertzaccour: then you need to install alsa-oss08:04
crizisbecause of lack of automation, lack of up to date packages, and having to script tons of tasks manually which ubuntu does automatically08:04
Jimster480-Laptocrizis: Because it cant get any simpler. And CentOS is so quick stable and secure, and the Yum is so easy to use.08:04
robertzaccourworm, ok just did08:04
crizisnow please stop trolling08:05
bretoliuscrizis:  this dkpg advice looks exactly like what I am looking for combined with the preserved /home on a separate drive.  Do you have any adivce about PPDs?  They all get disabled on re-install08:05
Jimster480-Laptocrizis: Its not trolling I really don't understand your fanboyism with this distro for servers.08:05
Jimster480-Laptocrizis: please explain to me what makes you such a fan of their servers?08:05
crizis!ot Jimster480-Lapto08:05
bretoliusUse what works best for you Jimster480-Lapto08:05
Jimster480-Laptoinsomniac_lemon: yea i dont like Unity at all so I never upgraded08:05
robertzaccourworm, ok now what? it didn't run using with 'alsa-oss'08:05
sdollinsASHER1: Did you see my messages?08:06
bretoliusadvice we can all take easily08:06
insomniac_lemonJimster480-Lapto, so try 11.04, it uses Gnome 2, not Unity08:06
Jimster480-Laptoinsomniac_lemon: I just patch things that I need to. And build myself new kernels as time goes on.08:06
crizisbretolius, you can try to enable them one by one, but generally it's just safer to disable them08:06
wormrobertzaccour: Because it makes a change on drivers, you need to reboot, then look at /dev and check if there is "/dev/dsp"08:06
Jimster480-Laptoinsomniac_lemon: I'll think about it. I was pretty sure it was on Unity though.08:06
bretoliuscrizis: if the ppa eventually brings support to the new OS, will the entries already be configured for that?08:06
robertzaccourworm, ok brb08:06
bretoliuscrizis: or will I need to re-add them08:07
wormrobertzaccour: /dev/dsp is your microphone. You'll then be able to use it as input08:07
crizisyou'll need to re-add them08:07
bretoliusbleh that sucks08:07
bretoliusI guess I should just accept out of date software or keep better traack of which ppa does what08:07
crizishow much software you possibly can need from ppa's, anyway08:08
insomniac_lemonJimster480-Lapto, actually, it has both Unity and Gnome 208:08
Jimster480-Laptocrizis: depends on what you are doing08:08
insomniac_lemonSo you just change what you log into08:08
Jimster480-Laptoinsomniac_lemon: So its not Unity with the session fallback crap?08:08
insomniac_lemonno need to install anything08:08
insomniac_lemonI don't know08:08
wormrobertzaccour: /dev/dsp is your microphone. You'll then be able to use it as input08:09
robertzaccourworm, I'm back08:09
insomniac_lemonIt's not like Gnome Fallback on the never versions08:09
wormrobertzaccour: wish it works08:09
Jimster480-Laptoinsomniac_lemon: oh ok08:09
Jimster480-LaptoI'm just afraid of breaking my version that I have now08:09
insomniac_lemonJimster480-Lapto, try it on a VM or something08:09
robertzaccourworm, my mic works just fine, I need to know how to record from my speakers08:09
wormrobertzaccour: -f oss  -i  /dev/dsp08:09
robertzaccourworm, where do I put that in the command at?08:10
Jimster480-Laptoinsomniac_lemon: yea Ill make a VM on my Windows desktop and check it out, its usually what i do with most releases these days08:10
Jimster480-Lapto11.04 is supported until when?08:10
insomniac_lemonIs it still supported?08:10
robertzaccourworm, what do I need to change in this? ffmpeg -f alsa -ac 2 -i plughw:1,0 -f x11grab -r 30 -s 1920x1080 -i :0.0 -acodec pcm_s16le -vcodec libx264 -preset ultrafast -threads 0 output.mkv08:11
robertzaccour with that?08:11
wormrobertzaccour: A moment please. I am checking it.08:11
robertzaccourworm, I want to record with my mic and analog speakers directly at the same time08:11
robertzaccourworm, ok thanks08:11
Jimster480-Laptoinsomniac_lemon: yea its LTS so it should be supported still08:12
Jimster480-Laptoinsomniac_lemon: not that i care that much, if i really have to patch something i can just build it most of the time.08:13
Jimster480-LaptoMESA 7.10.108:13
facusomeone can help me?08:14
Jimster480-Laptohmm maybe I will try it out because that would let me get my hardware accel back. Because MESA is one of the things that i havent upgraded.08:14
Jimster480-Laptofacu: what is the issue?08:14
facuI have just already installed Java but the other softs doesn't found it08:14
facufor example08:15
wormrobertzaccour: How about do some test on your computer? ffmpeg -f alsa -i hw:0,0 -acodec libmp3lame outfile.mp3 Wish that can record the sound that plays in your speakers.08:15
Jimster480-Laptohow did you install it?08:15
FlyingElvisfacu  did you install actual java or icedtea08:15
facuwith the packages that I found in the web of microsystems08:15
facuthe official page of Java08:15
facuI learn all the wiki08:15
FlyingElvisr u using ubuntu?08:15
wormrobertzaccour: If that can record your speaker's sound, you may be able to add that as an input of your ffmpeg.08:16
FlyingElvisgo to the ubuntu software app and download icedtea 708:16
Jimster480-Laptofacu: so did you patch the files into your folder?08:16

Jordan_Urobertzaccour: Are you using Unity2D or Unity3D? Either way Unity and GNOME Shell will use a different window manager than, but if you're using Unity2D then you're not even using a composited Window Manger.

trap24iceroot: iF  flashplugin-in Adobe Flash Player plugin installer10:06
hoeggerr_And _also_  Win7 download ti an admin account "downloaded files" when in user account, and later when pendrive linux try to find the file it looks in the user account..10:06
icerootGVRV: installing libc6 by hand is always!! a bad idea and will break the system normally10:06
blackshirtgvrv, that was bad step10:07
nunneAnyone having problems with nvidia drivers on x64?? Been following what has been written online about installing linux source+headers.. But still no unity task bar or borders... I'm stuck at using the noveaou driver which is the suckiest thing on eart.. cant even move around windows / playback video without hugh lagg... running nvidia-settings after installing the nvidia drivers just says that no nvidia drivers are loade10:07
iceroottrap24: means installed and failed10:07
nunned. i have also tried running nvidia-xconfig. no luck, same error :(10:07
WalterNalright, so, played around with my computer screen configuration, and it seems to work fine if the three computer screens are mirrored, or if two of them are turned off10:07
GVRViceroot, it was suggested by someone on ubuntuforums :/ I really didn't know what I was getting myself into10:07
icerootGVRV: libc6 is the most important package on the system, when that gets broken you are in serious problems10:07
nunne(after updating to 12.10 that is)10:07
WalterNbut if two or all three computer screens are turned on, then video is extremely sluggish10:07
wolsnunne: why would you want to install it via source and headers?10:07
WalterNfor 3D things10:07
icerootGVRV: what is the output of "apt-cache policy libc6"10:07
iceroot!paste | GVRV10:08
nunnewols, i know headers are required for building the nvidia-driver module10:08

nunnewols, exactly what i am doin10:08
nunneit's not working.. and im not the only one with this problem10:08
wols!doesn't work10:08
ubottuDoesn't work is a strong statement. Does it sit on the couch all day? Does it want more money? Is it on IRC all the time? Please be specific! Examples of what doesn't work tend to help too.10:08
nunnewols, the ubuntu package builds the kernel module for my kernel (default). this is the normal behaviour.10:08
nunneotherwise it would need a new package for every kernel update10:09

nunnewols, I have described my errors? i'm not the only one having problems with nvidia prop. drivers in 12.10 it seems. just that what works for most doesnt work for me.10:11
icerootGVRV: can you try "sudo apt-get install libc6" and paste the output10:12
wolsnunne: you wrote "doesn't work". that's no description10:12
trap24iceroot: sudo dpkg -P flashplugin-in brings no installed package matching.10:12

GVRViceroot, http://paste.ubuntu.com/1294487/10:12

WalterNmy video is fine with the AMD HD6870 if the screens are mirrored or only one turned on. but if two or all three are turned on its extremely sluggish10:14
icerootGVRV: is it a fresh install?10:14
GVRViceroot, dunno what is erroring in the pre-installation scripts exactly, but I've been going in circles the whole day10:14
enqok, going to look other errors, thanks :)10:14
WalterNxorg.0.log does not indicate any errors...10:14
icerootGVRV: where was the libc6 package coming from?10:14
wolsGVRV: apt-cache clean to remove the libc deb package from /var/cache10:14
GVRViceroot, nope, was working fine for months, ubuntu 12.0410:15

icerootGVRV: and the package was designed for 12.04?10:16
blackshirtgvrv, if you want download and install it, you should install dependenies too10:17
WalterNwoah... there are the errors.. just popped up in the log file10:17
dr_willisenq you can set servername.dev  to point to localhost.10:17
GVRVwols, still no luck http://paste.ubuntu.com/1294497/10:17
enqbut dr_willis i will have to do it for each *.dev, dont i?10:17
GVRViceroot, yep, certain about that10:17
icerootGVRV: hm, you have aptitude installed? maybe that can rescue the issue10:18
dr_willisenq: yes10:18
GVRVblackshirt, really didn't think I'd need to :/ I thought it'd fetch the needed dependencies10:18
trap24now, does anyone still use cairodock with unity ? it freezes often. i think its redundant. there is already a nice panel on the left. right ?10:18
GVRViceroot, nope :(10:18
wolsGVRV: are you out of room on your / ?10:18
enqhmm... any other solutions? ofc i dont add alot of extra names, but still10:18
wolsiceroot: it's a dpkg error message. aptitude won't do anything10:19
dr_willistrap24: it has a different featureset. not tried cairodock here in ages10:19
wolsiceroot: and the dpkg error message is crap and useless :(10:19
GVRVwols, nope plenty of space available10:19
trap24dr_willis: hehe.. ok10:19
icerootwols: my hope was aptitude will pick up the current libc6 , he installed an older version and the repo is holding a newer one10:19
wolsGVRV: go to /tmp and run dpkg --unpack <path to var cache file of libc6> there10:19
blackshirtgvrv, if you download it from different repository, ?10:20
wolsiceroot: he tries to install a newer one and it fails. unless you know a newer one than mentioned in his paste. at which point aptitude won't help but only a different repo would10:20
bazhang!aptitude | iceroot10:20
ubottuiceroot: aptitude is another terminal-based front-end to APT. You may encounter problems on multiarch installs (11.10 and higher) as aptitude cannot currently handle the same package with different architectures being installed at the same time. See http://pad.lv/831768 for more information.10:20
icerootwols: http://paste.ubuntu.com/1294483/10:20

icerootwols: the installed 10.2 with dpkg -i10:22
GVRVblackshirt, nope, downloaded it from precise-updates10:22
wolsiceroot: he tries to install 10.3 which causes the error, duh10:22
icerootwols: because the 10.2 fails which je installed with dpkg -i10:22
WalterNok, so, with my AMD radeon HD6870 I'm getting extremely sluggish video response, and a bunch of nasty error things showing in xorg.0.log   http://pastebin.com/1rxcHM5y10:23
wolsiceroot: please stop talking to me until you make sense. have a niec day10:23
icerootwols: ... whatever..10:23
WalterNbut it seems to work fine if I have two of my three computer screens turned off10:23
wolsGVRV: run apt-cache clean again and switch to a different repo. looks like you cannot unpack the libc6 in.archive delivers to you10:24
icerootwols: the old one from the repo was 10.0, he installed 10.2 with dpkg -i which failed on the depenendcies and now he is trying to install 10.3 from the repos but the 10.2 one is still broken10:24
icerootwols: but i guess you are the guru, so good luck with that10:25
blackshirtgvrv, commonly, the newer libc installed was for upgrading process10:25
bazhangiceroot, wols lets be civil please10:25
GVRVwols, switch to a different repo? which one?10:25
GVRVblackshirt, yes, everything broke during an upgrade. Problems didn't start with libc6 broken at all, they started with flashplugin-installer and man-db (FOR SOME REASON) were broken one morning, I couldn't re-install them, so I just removed them. Then I tried upgrading and libc was suddenly broken as I've been following the advice on http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2073770 thread :(10:27
WalterNwell.. I'm going to bed... guess I'll try to figure it out in the morning10:28
aptosidis it possible to update upgrade an installed ubuntu 12.10 which is broken and cant boot while i run another distro?10:30
GVRVblackshirt, iceroot, wols, I guess I've royally effed my system, what would the best way to restore it back to normality?10:32
janisozaurhi! I'm using netvibes as my default rss reader, but for some time I'm willing to try out other options. What is a deal-breaker for me is ability to synchronize feeds list and (un)read status of items in each feed between multiple computers. Do you know of any program capable of doing so? (and yes, i've already asked BestBot)10:32
bekksGVRV: Grabbing your backup and restore it from there.10:32
wolsGVRV: dpkg -l |grep libc610:32
wolsaptosid: it's possible. you boot the other distro and chroot to ubuntu (all console). then you can fix your ubuntu10:33

DX099you can still block common ports12:04
=== erry is now known as errietta
SouravAJhow can u please tell?12:05
DX099you should read your router's user manual12:05
SouravAJok can we do with iptables??12:06
Chris-MagentiumTorrents will always be difficult to block, because you can just randomize the port.12:06
bindiSouravAJ: why do you want to block torrents?12:06
DX099SouravAJ, of course, but check what Chris-Magentium said12:06
Chris-MagentiumThe only way to truly block them is to completely block all ports, and then enable only the ones you know you need. Problem being..there are ways to encrypt it over Port 80...block that port and you get on Browser internet....12:07
SouravAJactually my wi-fi is using in many computers in my family and everyone download torrent so i cant surf12:07
bekksChris-Magentium: Then setup deep packet inspection and filter out those packages.12:07
DX099SouravAJ, talk with them12:07
josy1982first place12:08
Chris-MagentiumYes of course. Good call bekks, but the fact that SouravAJ is asking how to do it, means that me / she probably is not that much into networking, would be difficult for them (it was difficult for me), not offence to anyone of course.12:08
SouravAJok if i block all ports can i download local things from a website like mp3 pdf etc?12:08
bekksChris-Magentium: ack :)12:08
DX099bekks, DPI is a pretty highly aggressive thing to do for such matter. If it was business maybe but even then...12:09
TJ-SouravAJ: You will need to use layer-7 filtering to detect and block P2P connections. See http://l7-filter.sourceforge.net/12:09
bekksSouravAJ: No. When blocking all ports, all ports are blocked. You have to open the ports you need.12:09
h7risn't there some packet filtering kernel modules that can be used with iptables and would make it at least in theory possible to block torrents? i never did it myself, but remember seeing something like that a few years ago...12:09
insomniac_lemonHas anyone here actually gotten VLC to play Bluray discs in Ubuntu?12:09

SupermanintightsHi..  I think I may have messed up (denial), and just lost 700mb of data on my external.  My external drives keep changing it's partition format to Fat32 or something other than NTFS (which is what I always set it to), and I just tried to change it back, and basically it deleted all my stuff.  While I admit this is probably my fault, is there a way to undo/recover my information - I changed it via gparted.12:28
vibhavmariusz__: What do you want to do after removing it?12:29
hatgor<mangozy>, what should i post?12:29

h7rBluesKaj, this host is an audio streaming server using mpd -> alsa, connected through the regular audio connector to a mixer. now i'm in the process of getting rid of some cables and want to stream the audio through bluetooth. the whole setup is already testes (receiver side). what's missing is making alsa be able to send audio through bluetooth.12:30

mangozyhatgor: its your Q12:30
mariusz__so how to make shortcut of other aplications ??12:30
theadminmongi: It's built-in and is called networkmanager ;) Wireless -> New -> Shared12:31
vibhavmariusz__: If you want to move them to the desktop, just search for them in the dash and drag them to the desktop12:31
h7rBluesKaj, i'm using (or trying to) bluez-alsa12:31
muelliSupermanintights: I would create a bit by bit backup at first. So you can experiment with that image instead of on the real harddrive. You can use smth like "dd if=/dev/sdc of=/media/otherdrive/bitbackup.dd bs=4M"12:31
h7rBluesKaj, and am stuck to 11.1012:31
Supermanintightsinsomniac_lemon, other than screaming, shedding a few tears and closing my eyes and counting to ten - I haven't touched it since I changed it.  I'm relatively new to ubuntu - I tend to stick with it for my media centre and a few other things - do you have any useful guides/resources?12:31
mariusz__hahahaah  thanks for that :D12:31
insomniac_lemonSupermanintights, because when you "delete" files, it doesn't truly delete them, just makes it not be visible/accessible, but certain tools can recover deleted files. Just don't put anything on the drive, and definitely don't fill the drive.12:31
vibhavmariusz__: example, search for home folder in the dash and then drag its icon to the desktop12:31

Supermanintightsmuelli, I'm new to ubuntu - can you just expand on what you wrote a bit? How would that work?12:32

theadminmongi: So yes, that's right, I'm not sure if you'll find anything that can12:32

martyn_tmatthias_ thanks for the reply.  The system works fine (I have used it for many years).  It is only within the last week that it is requesting root password.  When I use my own the password box wobbles and tells me I have it wrong. I don't have root password and it has never been set up.  I can perform the tasks through Terminal but was concerned why this has changed recently.13:44

martyn_tmatthias_ I suspect it is the Ubuntu OS itself - is that where security policy is 'kept'?  It isn't a single program either, it is anything that I try and run through the GUI which would normally required SUDO privileges.13:46

martyn_tmattias_ I can successfully change my own password through Terminal (and do anything else required using sudo or gksudo).  It is if I open a program through GUI.  For example if you go to DASH and type gparted you will be prompted for your own account password.  My OS is now asking for root password instead.13:49

subichanlscpu counts HT cores as well under CPU, right?15:00

elwoodhi all15:00

flexmdury: Did you just installed ubuntu16:59
L3topBugari: you have 3 monitors?16:59
ikoniaaafa: if grub2 didn't install, you wouldn't have been able to boot your machine, so you couldn't have typed apt-get install grub16:59
L3topBugari: one of which is an actual CRT?16:59

BugariL3top: it's not crt, its LCD, it's just recognized this way :P17:00
aafaikonia: i get what i need not what you need ;p17:01

aafaikonia: eventually im thankfull to you17:01
durybut the essence it's GNU/linux17:01
L3topok Bugari. That was why I asked.17:01
BugariL3top: If I see correctly, it's X screen 2, if it makes any diffrence17:01
L3topBugari: I know where it is... I am just not trying to deal with an ACTUAL CRT.17:02
aafaikonia: i've my own style, but for grub it has always been a disrty bootloader..even after uninstalling ubuntu it still remains there..but it works for linux which is cool17:02
ikoniaaafa if you are not going to answer the questions I'm asking you to try and help you and just keep answering with random noise, please don't bother responding to me again17:03
BugariL3top: I'm not saying you can't locate it, i'm just trying to get as much info as possible :P it's not crt, it's lcd, I'm sure of it :D17:03

david1234L3top: some further testing. From recovery mode, I chose "network". Was asked if I wanted to "remount your /filesystem in read/write mode and mount any other filesystem defined in /etc/fstab". When I chose yes, it gave me the two-line fsck status, and is now hung again.17:10
ls612I'm having an issue with my new install of 12.10. Occasionally (every fifth boot or so) the graphical load will fail and I'll be dumped into a black screen with nothing on it except for some white text at the top that say "[ OK ]". the only thing that gets me out of that is manually powering off the machine and rebooting, after which it works fine.17:10
ls612When I went into recovery mode it gave an error, saying that 'the last mount time for dev/sda5 was in the future, probably due to a miscalibrated hardware clock'17:11
ls612Any ideas about what is going on?17:11
L3topdavid1234: it seems as though something is very wrong with your install or the physcial disk. I am not really sure where to start troubleshooting... can you load a live disk and fsck it from there? Or did we do that already?17:12
fred_1Can anyone look at my problem I cant install Programs in Ubuntu. The details are in http://pastebin.com/TaMPdFzx ... please?17:12

drkokandyI don't know about the [OK] issue ls612 - but you can check to see what the hardware time is in the BIOS. Enter setup the next time you boot up (the key differs by your motherboard maker, but it might be something like F2)17:13
david1234L3top: The issues started after I did the release upgrade from 12.04 to 12.10. Is there any way to roll back?17:13

insomniac_lemonantisocial, also, if you have a problem with red/blue colors being switched in videos, that is a bug in flash on Adobe's part. A way to fix this is to use Chrome, as it has built-in flash more controlled by Google, and it doesn't have this issue, and runs better.17:19

danman1453because, if I choose to upgrade, it gives me a msg that it is not supported17:24
insomniac_lemonplustax, actually, it is different, Chrome is based on Chromium, and has more things built-in. Chromium is more bare-bones and has less features.17:24

wat90insomniac_lemon ketterer: I don' t know! those were already like that, do any of you have a reccomendation on how to install Studio without touching the ntfs part? I am not good at formatting Linux partitions17:48
riverlessjrib: correct17:48
riverlessjrib: its also on something called a Flexraid raid17:48
riverlessjrib: so there problably their stuff not working as well17:48
kettererwat90: this will not touch your ntfs,  then i would make a 10 or 15 gig partition select it to be used and use as "/" then make the a second partition  that is like 60 gigs and then it will be set to use, then use as "/home" then finially the remaining free space can be set to be used as a swap partition17:48
kettererwat90: well i would select sda 1 and sda2 and  go to change, there should be a delete funtioon there, then you will have about 80 gigs free this will not touch your ntfs,  then i would make a 10 or 15 gig partition select it to be used and use as "/" then make the a second partition  that is like 60 gigs and then it will be set to use, then use as "/home" then finially the remaining free space can be set to be used as a swap partition17:49
jribriverless: when I've seen output like that in the past, it's indicative of some sort of filesystem corruption and advise an fsck.  I don't know if you need to do something special because of this Flexraid raid17:49
WalterNso... installed 12.10 and everything seems fine when my three displays are mirrored, or two of the three are turned off... but when running two or three screens video is extremely sluggish, and I get this nasty looking error in xorg.0.log   http://pastebin.com/1rxcHM5y17:49
kettererwat90:  if you want step by step help pm me ok17:49
wat90I am pming you ketterer17:50
riverlessjrib: well this company says that first fix your locale problem (what I think ive done), and now its their software not working17:50
riverlessjrib: as I cant create täst properly on their partition17:50
wilee-nileels612, I'm not see any red flags in the script, it is always helpful in any problem to have details associated with it. As in what exactly happens when it does not boot.17:50
insomniac_lemonwat90, the part that has free space has nothing on it, and it is a separate partition that isn't formatted. You should format that to install the OS.17:50
Siegel-hi, i just installed xubuntu, xfce interface on ubuntu 10.10 and i cannot find the "display" icon in "system" to change the screen resolution,. this is causing many problems as i cannot log into yahoo mail and such because this is below their recommended resolution settings17:50

riverlessjrib: yea, one fast question, how can I get everything back in english? only the output, I dont want to read everything in swedish.17:52
Siegel-jrib: where is the display icon to change screen resolution on xfce17:52
riverlessjrib: man and such commands looks stupid in swedish..17:52
wilee-nileeSiegel-, AS a heads up 10.10 is end of life and actually not supported here. ;)17:53
wilee-nileeyou may get help but far and few between17:53
jribriverless: you can just prefix a command with the environment variable.  So for example: LANG=C apt-cache policy mplayer.  I don't remember, which takes precedence, so you may have to try LANG, LANGUAGE, and LC_ALL17:53
kettererI have been having troubles with web integration and i really would like to get it working, now I beleive it is my own fault, used the beta version on 12.04 for a while and It stopped working there but i didnt much care i just waited for 12.10, but now it is not working here. I have a home partition so it is still the same home folder as before17:53
riverlessjrib: thanks17:54

dr_willisketterer:  from what ive seen of it.... it tends to be flakey. ;) ive had it work one day then not the next..17:56
dr_willisketterer:  you could test with a newly made user and se if it works. there may be some old settings confuseing it17:56
kettererdr_willis: ok, i have not had it work at all yet on 12.10,17:57
kettererill try that in a few mins17:57
dr_willisketterer:  from what ive seen of it.. you are not missing much. ;)17:57
dr_willisketterer:  during beta testing it was a very hit and miss feature17:58

ls612wilee-nilee: It will drop me into a black screen with some white text at the top that says "[ OK ]". That OK can not be used, the only way out is to hard restart. Sometimes before it drops me there it says it can't find a display adapter. I use Intel HD 4000 graphics.17:59

insomniac_lemonclo_, hahaha, is that a joke?18:04
escottclo_, is comic sans not an msft core font?18:04
bjaanesclo_: install ttf-mscorefonts18:04
ls612wilee-nilee: and if it was a graphics driver problem why would it only happen when the recovery console says the system clock is off?18:04
clo_escott, yes18:04
escottclo_, yes it is a corefont or yes it is not a corefont?18:05
clo_escott, not corefont18:05
brontosaurusrexof course its corefont18:05
escottclo_, if its not a corefont then you need to get the .ttf and drop it into ~/.fonts18:06
wilee-nileels612, I'm just guessing to be honest.18:06
clo_escott, okay18:07
clo_thank you18:07
ls612Can I run something to get graphics driver diagnostics?18:07
bjaanesclo_, im pretty sure its in the ttf-mscorefonts package18:07
bjaanesOh well :P18:07
wilee-nileels612, Did you mention the clock before?18:07
wilee-nileeclo_That font is in the restricted-extras for your desktop a ms font.18:08
ls612wilee-nilee: Yes, the first post I made about this I believe I mentioned that the recovery console said that the last mount time for dev/sda5 was in the future by less than a day. And, after it fixes that it works fine the next boot.18:09
jakubohow can i make the system use the precise repo for grub (system is quantal)18:09
bjrohanI have a problem with java, one website let's me use it's plugin on one page the other says it can't be detected18:10
escottls612, that could just be clock skew18:10
wilee-nileels612, Ah you are right, my main area of any knowledge if it could be called knowledge is in grub problems, but very limited even there. I am just a regular user that has been running linux for awhile is all.18:11
ls612would it have anything to do with booting win7?18:11
ls612because that seems to trigger the issue repeatably.18:11
escottls612, yes18:11
ls612escott: so what can I do then to fix this?18:12
wilee-nileels612, I would use the ubuntu forums rather then the IRC for this if it was me.18:12
wilee-nileeat least as well.18:12

Crux at the manu site if I go to get java it says it can't detect it, any clues? I found I did have a 3rd party PPA autorized :web8update18:14
dr_willisbjrohan:  could be one site wants the  offical java, not the open sourced java18:15
bjrohanwilee-nilee: The 3rd party was: http://ppa.launchpad.net/webupd8team/java/ubuntu could this have caused my problem?18:15

bjrohanwilee-nilee: me too, that is how I have 6 versions of java on my system now and none are a go18:17
dr_willismiss_ubuntu_:  if you wanted the lightest setup you can use a non gui/console torrent client and not evn start x at all. but i doubt if you will save a lot of power no matter how much you turn off.18:18
wilee-nileebjrohan, I have never really understood java, I think I have java 7 installed what it does I have no idea, it just seemed needed.18:18
dr_willismiss_ubuntu_:  or use a very mini mal window manager for your gui client to run in18:18
miss_ubuntu_dr_willis thanks , what is minimal window manager? my cpu fan continuously make noise mens some processes are consuming cpu18:19
dr_willismiss_ubuntu_:  more likely power saveings features are not enabled on your system/mb/bios18:19

humboltbut I am unable to make it load the normal or the linux module18:26
lionofgodI am wondering if I have maybe installed it wrong or something, because no one else is complaining about this...18:26
bekkshumbolt: Then please start at the beginning. Whats happens when you power on your server, what do you do, what exactly is the problem?18:27
wilee-nileehumbolt, A upgrade will load the latest version, 12.10 has had at least a while back a dead boot I would chroot in and reload the mbr at the least.18:27
humboltwilee-nilee: the server is in france18:27

humboltbekks: but I do not have an advanced pack and can not load virtual disks for that reason. the eval license they offer, does not work. the support forums say, I would have to reset iLO to factory defaults first, but then I would loose connectivity completely.18:30
lionofgodLet me reword that, has anyone opened up ccsm on ubuntu 12.1018:30
wilee-nileelionofgod, There is a #compiz channel as well if needed.18:30

wilee-nileelionofgod, Before messing with this I would install the fusion icon and make a launcher for it on the desktop this will restart compiz you will need it and know how to rm the messed up setup.18:34

wilee-nileelionofgod, Can you not look?18:36
IDWMasterThe one that I just mentioned; it hasn't been reported yet though.18:36
IDWMasterNot sure which package it should be in though18:37
wilee-nileecongiun, It's already installed, do you wnat the ccsm18:37
lionofgodwilee-nilee: I have and I am wondering if I have not installed some package...because no one else is complaining or moaning about this in online community18:37
IDWMasterIntel should get the middle finger from Linux Torvalds.18:37
IDWMasterMaybe that would make Intel give us some better drivers18:37
lionofgodI would think that dropping cube and such from compiz would be pretty big18:37
lionofgodIs there anyone using ccsm?18:38
IDWMasterAnyways; it's a problem with the drivers (or in this case; lack thereof) provided by Intel18:38
wilee-nileelionofgod, I'm on precise right now I used to love unity and had a great cube setup with a script to load it that stopped working as of precise I gave up on that desktop and switched to the shell.18:38
