blacknessGandalfB, without a media source, you cant really do much..00:39
_r00t_willbeeler:  sudo update-grub00:39
mercury00willbeeler, assuming you would like to add the installation on the second disk to the grub menu on the first disk, anyway,00:40
dooml0rdis there a way to compare two directory trees. e.g: something like rsync reporting what it would do if you invoked it00:40
GandalfBblackness, well I have the media,  I just can't boot from cd (as I dont have one) and the motherboard is to crapy to boot from usb00:40
_r00t_dooml0rd: diff -r00:40
GandalfBso is there an equiviant to the windows installer?00:41
blacknessGandalfB, i'd go buy a single CD-r00:41
willbeelerim sorry i must have lost connection... does anyone know what to do about my question? I have 2 installations of ubuntu, but only one grub entry00:41
mercury00doomlord, yes, rsync has an option that will do nothing, it's, -n i think00:41
_r00t_dooml0rd: or run the rsyn with -n option ie --dry-run00:41
willbeelerand the grub entry goes to the older one00:41
GandalfBblackness, no I have no cd-r drive :)00:41
blacknessno CDRom period?00:41
GandalfBI have the cd-r ;D00:41
blacknessi believe there is a way to use grub to install from a iso.00:41
GandalfBwell, correct,  actually no ide cable to connect it :S00:42
mercury00doomlord, or --dry-run, so something like rsync --update /first/dir /second/dir --dry-run, maybe00:42
blacknessGandalfB, can you borrow one from another device? like a slave HD..00:42
blacknessGandalfB, wait, you said IDE right?00:42
dooml0rdrsync -nr perhaps (recursive/dry run)00:42
GandalfBnot really00:42
mercury00willbeeler, assuming you would like to add the installation on the second disk to the grub menu on the first disk, anyway, use 'sudo update-grub00:42
GandalfBblackness, yup00:42
mercury00willbeeler, it *should* automatically see that you have kernels on the second disk, and add them to your grub menu00:43
blacknessWhy not slave your CDrom off your harddrive? or is the slave IDE slot taken by a harddrive?00:43
=== Albastos is now known as Albastos|off
GandalfBthe harddrive is sata :P00:43

GandalfBok I taka  read00:45
bc81@search Edwin Marlow00:45
blacknessGandalfB, You have to edit grub.cfg manually i believe.00:45
mercury00willeeler, only from the running instance of the first disk,00:45
blacknessbc81, this isnt a file serving channel.00:45
mercury00willeeler, when you run update-grub it'll try to update the info it has on the running kernel / current root directory unless you carefully specify otherwise,00:45
GandalfBblackness, I think thats one for the morning, my head starting to swell with pain :(  Thanks for all the help tonight and thankyyou bobweaver for trying to help00:46
mercury00willbeeler, but it's safest/easiest to boot into the first dist, run sudo update-grub, and watch the output.  It should print out some info about how it discovered an ubuntu kernel on the other disk00:46
willbeelermercury00: when i setup the second instllation, i set it to the second (new) hard drive (grub i mean)... would that be a prob?00:47
willbeelerok ill try that00:47
blacknesshaha..i know that feeling GandalfB00:47
blacknessmake sure you save it :)00:47
willbeelerhow rude... I forgot to say thank you mercury00!!!00:48
GandalfBttfn all00:48
mercury00willbeeler, it's not a probem to 'also' install grub to the second disk, it' sjust that it'll never be used unless you physically remove the first disk.  Your BIOS -> tries booting the first disk.  The first disk -> loads grub from the boot sector, gets files from the root directory00:48
willbeelerand everyone else for their help00:48

ubottukolaracdn: To start your system in text-only mode append 'text' (without the quotes) to the kernel line in the grub menu. You can access the grub menu by pressing Esc (Grub legacy) or Shift (Grub2) during boot. For more info see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BootOptions#Text%20Mode00:59
blacknessbazhang, i believe he wants it to goto console, and leave X running in the background. not sure if what you suggested will do that.01:00
QS81blackness: one minor question - when it says that the target system's hard drive needs to be mounted, do they mean the one I'm trying to open or the one that was created when the upgrade took place?01:00

=== qos|away is now known as qos
jsnActionParsnip, lshw no longer shows disabled, but I don't know if that is from the rfkill command or from my iwconfig wlan0 up01:22
mercury00MoON_WallK, I think so, but my experience is that everyhing is much more manually configured in arch, ubuntu is more preconfigured01:22
Tharkisok thanks.. here goes something01:23
gsrtrism: http://pastebin.com/3gxcNvKA     I am on a train right now (viarail), so there is a chance its blocking some of the larger files needed to update apt, I guess01:23
bazhangmercury00, feel free to support him in #archlinux01:23
blacknessIf you follow that, it will work.01:23
ActionParsnipMoON_WallK: if you are new to linux, ubuntu is a great start point01:23
ActionParsnipjsn: can you now connect to wifis?01:23
mercury00bazhang, sorry.01:23
jsnActionParsnip, still the "unsupported driver: 'iwlwifi'"01:23

SynthosActionParsnip, Disabling power management didn't help as far as I could tell01:24
gsrActionParsnip, MoON_WallK: so is Wolfenstein: enemy territory01:24
MoON_WallKnop i used linux mint , backtrack, ubuntu , crunchbang red hat and i am fond of linux \:D/01:24
Synthosperhaps there are other settings that I'm missing?01:24
axisyshow do I slide the active windows like stack of cards instead of zoom out into a grid.. hardly see which one to pick on a laptop screen01:24
ActionParsnipSynthos: then I suggest you run:    dmesg | less     see what happens at boot, see what is detected and not etc01:24
bazhangMoON_WallK, did you have any actual ubuntu support questions?01:25
ActionParsnipMoON_WallK: those are all ubuntu base.....01:25
ActionParsnipMoON_WallK: well, except red hat01:26
MoON_WallKyup my question was which are the best security patching linux OS i cn install for long time :D01:26
SynthosActionParsnip, I did scan dmesg and didn't notice anything, but I don't exactly know what I'm looking for.  There were some warnings from syslog, but alas I cannot simply copy and paste easily01:26
MoON_WallKne ways thank you bazhang , ActionParsnip for you help \:D/01:26
bazhangMoON_WallK, thats not an ubuntu support question01:26
SynthosI will try some other driver settings from windows and see what happens01:26
mercury00jsn, btw what's lspci -n | grep 06:00.001:26
ActionParsnipSynthos: you don't need to copy and paste naything, you need to skim read it for wifi stuffs01:27

TharkisHi, I just wanted to let you know it worked. Thanks for the help!01:29
SynthosAlright, off i go01:29
mercury00Tharkis, yipee!01:29
ActionParsnipSynthos: use cursors to scroll down, its a useful log01:29
TharkisI agree mercury0001:29
mercury00jsn: ok, just checking, that's a totally supported card (and I know you said it already worked before just now stopped), ilwifi talks to it, so, does it give same message when trying to enable it?01:30
trismgsr: yeah that output doesn't look right at all, it isn't trying to get quantal/universe01:30
gsrtrism: must be this crappy wifi.  will have to try again when I get home.01:31
ActionParsnip!info moonwalk01:31
ubottuPackage moonwalk does not exist in quantal01:31

szalnibbler_: please fix your connection, thank you01:31
gsrtrism: thanks for the help anyway!01:31
mercury00jsn, are you on cli only?  does anyting show up in network manager?  wifi is controlled via several configs inthe system,01:32
jeff123Is browsing the web with an Ubuntu 12.04 live cd a security risk? Could your hard disk be compromised?01:32

sambagirli'm curious, if you have 10.10 & 10.04 servers, you probably can't upgrade can you? something would surely break i suspect.  so you would have no choice but to rebuild and start from scratch?  is there a migration option?01:33
mercury00sambagirl, I've upgraded 10.04 and 1.10 servers to 12.04 a few times,01:33

ubottusambagirl: End-Of-Life is the time when security updates and support for an Ubuntu release stop, see https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Releases for more information. Looking to upgrade from an EOL release? See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/EOLUpgrades01:34
sambagirljeff123 anything is possible. i would imagine the NSA or CIA or DIA or IRS or FBI have a way to get in without the cd/dvd :)01:34
mercury00sambagirl, some things could break, but it depends on what you're running01:34
ShinobiNone of my rdp views will connect to vbox remotely. It's enabled on the machine and there's no firewall. Rdesktop connects fine. Anyone have any idea why I can't connect using gnome-rdp, or remmina?01:34
molqrhey can i get the gnome-screen saver to tell me how long it was on ... basically i want to figure out how long was the screen locked for ... how long was i away from work01:34
jsnmercury00, I try to stay CLI, anyway.01:34
mercury00jsn, so I'm already making assumptions that something else isn't getting in the way of the commands, like network manager changing ssytem configurations,01:35
ActionParsnipsambagirl: i'd shoot for a clean install then restore user data etc from backup01:36
sambagirlhttps://help.ubuntu.com/community/EOLUpgrades that link has nothing but really really old releases.01:36
sambagirlActionParsnip, that would require installing all the products all over again wouldn't it?01:36
sambagirlall the dependencies and all that right?01:36
mercury00jsn, if it were me, I'd probably try rmmod the iwlwifi module, then re modprobe-ing it, via cli, to see if any messages appear,01:36
mercury00jsn, checking /var/log/messages or dmesg or whatnot,01:37
jsnmercury00, I've tried. It works perfectly. lsmod is happily reporting iwlwifi01:37
mercury00jsn, ok that's a good thing,01:37
simplewi changed by background and now unity appears also with it, how can i get back tht default unity purple background???01:38
mercury00jsn, maybe pastebin output of nm-tool?01:38
ActionParsnipsambagirl: indeed, both methods have advantages and disadvantages01:38
jsnHey, wait! /var/log/messages is missing. dmesg output is fine, though.01:38
mercury00jsn, unless nm is not installed,01:38

xanguasimplew: change your background to a purple one01:39
ActionParsnipsambagirl: thats going to take AGES01:39
mercury00jsn, it's ok, I think /var/log/messages is not universal to ubuntu,01:39
mercury00sambagirl, some very serious issues01:39
sambagirlI guess I will have to just map out a plan to do new installs and try to remember everything i have done in the past on those pizza boxes...01:40

kermithow do i install a realtime kernel?  mplayer pauses every time it reads about 5MB off disk01:41
adknight87Hi there01:42
adknight87I have a question01:42
ekAnyone here familiar with the way gParted assigns bootable MBR/partitions? I'm totally stuck trying to get my dual-boot grub menu to load. :(01:42
ekadknight87: Ask away.01:43
jsnmercury00, http://pastebin.ca/2253618   unchanged from when it was working01:43
adknight87I have a wine application that can launch protocol urls "imvu://"01:44
adknight87But I can't get xdg-open to do get it to open the link in the application01:44
adknight87I can do it via terminal01:44
SynthosActionParsnip, I have the dmesg log, the only concerning thing I can see about dmesg is [   34.995699] ADDRCONF(NETDEV_UP): eth1: link is not ready [   34.996436] ADDRCONF(NETDEV_UP): eth1: link is not ready01:44
SynthosI can pastebin the log (i copied a few logs to a shared partition)01:44
adknight87ek: What operating systems are you dual booting01:45
SynthosI'm more concerned about this from the syslog:01:46
SynthosNov 20 19:29:40 peterm-desktop NetworkManager[1227]: <warn> failed to allocate link cache: (-10) Operation not supported01:46
ekadknight87: You might want to check out the #wine or #playonlinux channels for more detailed help. They're a knowledgable bunch.01:46
adknight87This is more so the xdg-open part01:46
ekadknight87: Windows 8 and Kubuntu 12.10. Everthing installed okay, but I have no boot menu.01:46
adknight87ek: did you install windows 8 first?01:46
jsnIs there any chance that there is some constant, stuck in /proc/ from the one time I did a suspend/resume?01:47
ekadknight87: Yessir.01:47
mercury00jsn, yes, that looks just fine, do you have any options to iwlwifi in /etc/modprobe/ ?01:47
mercury00 jsn, nvmind, irrelevant, iwlwifi already working,01:47
SynthosActionParsnip, here is a segment of my syslog http://pastebin.com/X36L0iVt   (I cannot pastebin all the data as it exceed pastebin's max)01:48
adknight87ek: I was thinking about doing the same thing and i had read about the mbr deal for dual booting. Apparently you just add the grub in the windows mbr I think?01:48
mercury00jsn, is your wifi built-in?  an pci-e mini card?01:48
adknight87ek not the grub01:48
=== sburjan_ is now known as sburjan`
jsnmercury00, it is built in. PCI-E mini? I don't know.01:48
ekadknight87: My MBR seems to be completely missing and installing grub to /dev/sda1 (early sectors) and /dev/sda5 (Linux) won't work. Even after I've set them as bootable via gParted. *shrug*01:48
mercury00jsn, I have gotten similar errors when my card died.  Also, when it was physically switched off, but I can't find any info about your laptop's wifi-switch01:49
MaccerSo, I managed to break pulseaudio, but not jack. Any way to reconfigure it? I think it's because I installed a pulseaudio-jack module and added it the default.pa, but I reverted all of that and I still have no audio. Any thoughts?01:49
mercury00jsn, and to confirm, when you do a sudo lshw -C network, it no longer shows disabled or unclaimed?01:49
adknight87ek: use the startup repair on the windows install disk01:49
jsnmercury00, there is a switch. iwlist works, though, so it can't be all bad01:49
jsnmercury00, correct, no longer disabled, it hasn't shown me unclaimed01:49
mercury00jsn, does iwlist show wifi's, or empty list?01:50
jsnmercury00, it shows networks.01:50
ekadknight87: Just to replace the MBR? Can I then replace it with a grub boot menu?01:50
mercury00jsn, but you're unable to connect?01:50
jsnmercury00, correct.01:50
adknight87ek: no you add in the part for windows to know there's another operating system.01:50
jsnmercury00, but it stops with that unsupported driver message, rather than something else01:51
ekadknight87: The grub installation and configuration sees everything, it just doesn't install the bootloader into the correct place, apparently. IE: When I boot the system, it finds nothing even though I've installed GRUB.01:52
mercury00jsn, hmm, yeah I don't trust the message, just hoping to get better error output,01:52
adknight87ek: hmm what partition file formats do you have set up01:53
mercury00jsn, honestly, it seems like the card is mostly OK, and this is where things get ugly with wifi.  I'd try connecting to an unsecured network as a test.01:53
adknight87ek: I remember certain file systems not being read from grub01:53
jsnmercury00, Maybe this will help you? http://pastebin.ca/225362001:53
mercury00jsn, at this point you have to start using the split half approach,01:54
mercury00jsn, ah,01:54
mercury00jsn, what do you get 'file /dev/lan0'01:54
simplewisnt possible to disable what triggers unity wallpaper change when a user changes the session wallpaper?01:54
mercury00jsn, er 'file /dev/wlan0'01:54
ShinobiIf I upgrade my dist, will my packages work, or do I have to reinstall everything?01:55
adknight87how does xdg-open work exactly?01:55
mercury00jsn, 'file /var/run/wpa_suplicant', and 'ls -Flah /var/run/wpa_supplicant', those should be done sudo/root01:55
jsnmercury00, /dev/wlan0: ERROR: cannot open `/dev/wlan0' (No such file or directory)01:55
ekadknight87: I have an unallocated /dev/sda1 (bootable via gParted), a /dev/sda3 (Windows 8), a /dev/sda4 (Linux swap) and a /dev/sda5 (Linux /).01:56
Juanopsyhey all01:56

Juanopsysome help to remote acces from ub un01:56

Juanopsysome help to remote acces from ubuntu to ubuntu01:56
mercury00jsn, ah, that's fine because we want them not preexisting,01:57
ekJuanopsy: Can you be more specific, please?01:57
adknight87ek: well kubuntu has the same installation method as ubuntu right? if you just give it the right partition without the swap it will make the swap.01:57
Juanopsyek: yes, I want to remote acces to a friends computer over internet... what software should I use?01:58
adknight87ek: Unless you want it a certain size then I can see you just walking through that but usually you can do that after you had made the main partition for kubuntu.01:58
ekadknight87: Yep. Same method. However, I had to do a manual installation since the installer didn't recognize my Winderz OS for whatever reason.01:58
blacknessJuanopsy, connect how? ftp, terminal, x?01:58
Juanopsyek: full control?01:58
adknight87ek: that's odd. What device is this?01:58
blacknessJuanopsy, you can use SSH for terminal, or VNC for GUI.01:59

Juanopsyek: whats the diference of x11 and vnc?02:02
mercury00jsn, I'd try connecting to an unsecured network for the diagnosic results, and doing the ifup with -v02:03
ekJuanopsy: A VNC is a connection that basically puts your computer securely into a remote LAN (even though it's remote..) SSH is an encrypted shell that allows you to authenticate and execute commands on the remote system.02:03
adknight87ek: should be a easy install on there I had a 8 gig onboard ssd drive and it listed it but I haven't used it. Anyways do you have anything on windows I'm thinking a fresh start by erasing the whole hard drive and getting rid of the mbr along with it.02:04

ActionParsnipek: using the webs to search for things instead of asking frees helpers up.02:17
adknight87xD it's nice to see it on a list he can print out02:17
ekActionParsnip: That doesn't clear the MBR. In fact, it has nothing to do with what we're talking about.02:18
ActionParsnipek: it does, it puts 0s in the first 512k of drive02:18
ActionParsnipek: that is where the MBR resides02:19
ActionParsnipek: so it does clear the MBR02:19
adknight87ActionParsnip: Makes it unreadable02:19
ekActionParsnip: Well, if that's where the system's MBR is, yes. However, mine isn't there, apparently.02:19
ActionParsnipadknight87: all 0s, yep..pretty unreadable :)02:19
ActionParsnipek: then you willneed to find out and do that to the partition, rather than the disk02:20
ekUnallocated is exactly what it should be. So, unreadable would be great.02:20
ekActionParsnip: I'm trying to figure out why GRUB isn't booting into the menu.02:20

ubottuaxisys: Ubuntu 11.10 and higher use GNOME 3 with the !unity shell by default.  To use GNOME Shell instead, install the "gnome-shell" package and investigate "gnome-tweak-tool".  For GNOME Fallback mode, which is similar to GNOME 2, install "gnome-panel". Both packages will place entries in the Sessions dropdown. Using Natty? See !classic02:39

axisysActionParsnip: gnome-shell pkg asking gdm or lightdm.. since I am planning to replace unity, should I choose gdm?02:43

ActionParsnipbrightsparks: did you unmount and eject it?04:39
brightsparksActionParsnip: I meant to say I have to reformat it in the camera. I unmounted it as you suggested via the terminal yes04:40
ActionParsnipbrightsparks: you could check the file system for errors. Do you have a windows PC around?04:41
brightsparksActionParsnip: not at hand but later maybe - so check the file system on...?04:42

ActionParsnipMikeS11: can you pastebin the output of:   lsb_release -a; uname -a; dpkg -l | egrep 'flash|gnash|swf|spark'04:43
usr13MikeS11:  You could run firefox from terminal and see what appears in the terminal as the flashplayer crashes.04:43
ActionParsnipMrELusiveness: did you try upgrading to 1.5?04:44
ActionParsnipMrELusiveness: I'd ask in #winehq too04:44
brightsparksActionParsnip: so you recommend mounting the card in windows and seeing if I have the same issue I take it that's what your saying? Guess I'll have to do that. Thanks.04:44
MikeS11ActionParsnip: http://paste.ubuntu.com/1374083/04:44

MrELusivenessno one seems to know how to fix it04:46
MikeS11ActionParsnip: Correct. I added in the firefox packages for bonus information.04:46
MrELusivenessand the worst part is i dont know how it got that way04:46
ActionParsnipMikeS11: uninstall flashplugin-installer  then enable the partner repo and install adobe-flashplugin package, may help04:47
MrELusivenessif there is a way to fix it would be betetr than format04:47
ActionParsnipMrELusiveness: are there any bugs reported?04:47
MikeS11ActionParsnip: Sure, I'll give that a shot.04:47
MrELusivenessbut i did find where others had ran into the same issue04:47

rafase282so currently i am unable to do it unless im on the lan05:32
ActionParsniprafase282: and what port is it using?05:33
rafase282it was working before i had to restart the server05:33
rafase282but idk what am I missing this time05:33
zabomber1rafase282: you are looking to setup a PPTP VPN05:33
ActionParsniprafase282: then match that port in the port forwarding the same way you setup SSH05:33
rafase282idk how to set a vpn05:33
rafase282i was using ssh for updating and stuff05:33
rafase282samba for file sharing05:33
rafase282and transmission-cli with the web ui05:34
zabomber1rafase282: http://darrynvt.wordpress.com/2012/03/23/setup-l2tpipsec-vpn-ubuntu/05:34
ActionParsniprafase282: you can use SFTP which you get with openssh-server and access your data from anywhere05:34
zabomber1thats the guide i used to setup my vpn05:34
zabomber1it worked 100%05:34
rafase282the port match tho05:34

ActionParsniprafase282: nautilus can do it, no need for 'commands'05:35
rafase282My security must suck05:35
ActionParsniprafase282: you have a router so you'll be fine05:35

rafase282Action, it is not a OS issue05:39
rafase282the thing works on a local network05:39
ActionParsniprafase282: but this channel is OS specific05:39
rafase282well Im talking from an ubuntu machine from which im testing and can only acces with the local ip instead of the public ip, does that counts?05:40

* cousin_luigi recently upgraded from precise to quantal and now the hard disk is rather noisy on startup.05:53
cousin_luigiAnything new in the controller module or is it an upstart vagary?05:54
dr_willisnothing ive ever heard about cousin_luigi .05:54
cousin_luigiI see.05:55
AnOnqwqsome help05:55
juniourgud morning :)05:55
dr_willisupstart laumches services in parallel when it can. like it always has05:55
dr_willisi will mention  that ive found hard drives to be the weakest link in the hardware of a system05:56
cousin_luigidr_willis: I'm aware of the issue, but it's otherwise functional.05:56
dr_willisive seem them die without any real warning ;(05:56
dr_willisa hd suddendly making lots of noise would be so mthing to definatly keep an eye on05:57
cousin_luigiThe close correlation between upgrade and noise makes me wary of that.05:57
cousin_luigiIt's not the usual clicking sound when the voice coil is starting to fail.05:57
almoxarifei am assuming the big boy talk will lead somewhere interesting?05:59
AnOnqwqsome one cam give me a help plz?05:59
dr_willisAnOnqwq:  state the problem and see who can help.05:59
AnOnqwqme i use the ubuntu "anonymous-os 0106:00
AnOnqwqand i want to know more abot the os06:00
MrELusivenessoops sorry about the capos06:00
dr_willisive never  heard of  'anonymusOs' i imagine its som e ubuntu variant thats NOT supported by this channel.06:01
AnOnqwqanonymous OS06:01
ActionParsnipAnOnqwq: isnt that BSD based?06:01
cousin_luigiI thought it was the one with tor and all that jazz.06:01
MrELusivenesswhere you seing that?06:01
ActionParsnipkaos.theory's Anonym.OS LiveCD is a bootable live cd based on OpenBSD that provides a hardened operating environment whereby all ingress traffic is denied and all egress traffic is automatically and transparently encrypted and/or anonymized.06:01
cousin_luigiBut probably ubuntu based.06:01
almoxarifeMrELusiveness: take it to #wine06:02
ActionParsnipAnOnqwq: that ^06:02
MrELusivenessthey dont knwo either06:02

MrELusivenessand I am in winehq06:03
AnOnqwqis stabile or have trojan?06:03
ActionParsnipAnOnqwq: then how is that Ubuntu? 1. It's not Ubuntu 2. It's not even Linux, It's BSD....so why ask in a channel which ONLY supports Ubuntu?06:03
AnOnqwqsorry but i dont know that06:04
AnOnqwqim new and i want to learn ubuntu06:04
ActionParsnipAnOnqwq: try on of the bsd channels06:04

ActionParsnipI can't think of something more wrong, asking for BSD support in an ubuntu support channel06:09

Jezzzalmoxarife:  well, had a couple kernel panics today06:22
dr_willis i tend to use weechat06:22
Jezzzalmoxarife:  not sure if it's related06:22
ActionParsnipbrandon420: you can set nameservers in /etc/network/interfaces too06:22
brandon420ActionParsnip, what would i set them too?06:23
almoxarifebrandon420: fix what?06:23
brandon420i can use irc06:23
lotuspsychjeActionParsnip:you think its in compiz-plugins-extra ?06:23
ActionParsnipbrandon420: whatever you like, you could use if you desire06:23
brandon420but the actual internet is really unstable06:23
underkdidn't know irssi, that  seems cool !06:23
almoxarifebrandon420: the (nm) applet will allow you to set your own DNS06:23
ActionParsniplotuspsychje: try it, it's free :)06:23
lotuspsychjelol ok tnx06:24

almoxarifedoes irssi have a gui?06:24
ActionParsnipalmoxarife: it runs in a terminal06:24
MaGeD_Hello noob question : is there anyway to configure " rar " to rar files without compression "-m0 " using the right click context menu not with commands ,, i know how to do it with command " rar a -m0 "06:24
ActionParsnipalmoxarife: pidgin has a gtk gui06:24
brandon420xchat <306:24
dr_willisirssi and weechat are text/ncurses based type interfaces06:24
almoxarifebrandon420: no, but it would help if it actually dishes out dns06:24
ActionParsnipMaGeD_: you can use nautilus-scripts to do that type of thing06:25
almoxarifeso i could run irssi in my gui cli?06:25
ActionParsnipalmoxarife: sure, you can have a tab, or a separate terminal running IRSSI06:25
dr_willisalmoxarife:  you cantoma  run terminal apps in a terminal. ;) yes06:25
almoxarifei will stick with konversation06:27
MaGeD_ActionParsnip : Thanks , will google that06:27
ActionParsnipalmoxarife: irssi is handy if you are at work and can ssh to your system :)06:27
almoxarifeActionParsnip: not me, i would ssh to the home makina and run something in a gui, terminal is scary06:28
ActionParsnipalmoxarife: not really06:29
dr_willisscary is people who dont want to learn .;)06:29
ActionParsnipalmoxarife: you'll run issi then type:  /connect irc.freenode.net06:29
ActionParsnipalmoxarife: and you can switch nick and join channels..06:29
dr_willisznc and screen are handy tools to go along with irssi and weechat06:30
brandon420almoxarife, thanks man06:30
brandon420that worked.06:30
brandon420set it to
almoxarifehow is 'fish' diff from 'sftp' , i noticed the option on dolphin, so i set it up, i dont see a diff within dolphin between the two06:30
almoxarifebrandon420: time for the next phase, a nice dns cache with filtering, dnsmasq?06:31
brandon420what does that do?06:31
almoxarifebrandon420: it stops evidoers from invading the web browser06:32
almoxarifebrandon420: the cache remembers recent pages you visited, so you dont have to go to a dns server again, the filtering is a matter of taste, what dont you want to have the browser open?06:33
adysinhay fiend ..06:34
ActionParsnipalmoxarife: also if you put web cache in tempfs you get a pretty slick web connection :)06:37
brandon420almoxarife, that sounds a bit extreme for my needs06:37
brandon420my internet at home is fine06:37

bazhang!steam | disaconnex06:39
ubottudisaconnex: Valve have officially announced that they are developing Steam and are working with !ubuntu during their devlopment, see http://blogs.valvesoftware.com/linux/steamd-penguins/ for further details, you can also join #ubuntu-steam for discussion.06:39
almoxarifeActionParsnip: two, chromium and rekonq06:39
almoxarifeActionParsnip: mostly rekonq06:39
ActionParsnipalmoxarife: if you look in ~/.cache  do you see a folder for chromium?06:39
almoxarifeActionParsnip: yes06:39
ActionParsnipalmoxarife: what is the folder name?06:40
ActionParsnipalmoxarife: close all chromiums and run: sudo mkdir /run/chromium ; sudochown $USER:$USER /run/chromium; rm -r ~/.cache/chromium; ln -s /run/chromium ~/.cache/chromium06:41
ActionParsnipalmoxarife: basically it makes a folder under /run and makes it owned by your user, then symlinks a new empty folder to the tempfs.06:41
ActionParsnipalmoxarife: the folder is lost at reboot (clears temp cache) but your RAM now holds your temp internet files. If they are used then they will load from RAM (faster than your crappy HDD)06:42
ActionParsnipalmoxarife: also, if you use an SSD, it reduces wear as you are not writing temp web guff to the SSD, prolonging life06:43
almoxarifeActionParsnip: i got it, i will try it with rekonq, thats the one i mosty use, chromium i use for business only these days06:44
ActionParsnipalmoxarife: same bag, make a folder06:44
ActionParsnipalmoxarife: I have the comamnds in /etc/rc.local so that the folders are recreated on bootup06:45
almoxarifeActionParsnip: is the diff apperciable?06:45
ActionParsnipalmoxarife: should be. why waste time writing to HDD the to RAM :)06:45
almoxarifealmoxarife: what keeps the cache one from getting re-wrote?06:46
almoxarifeActionParsnip: that was for you :)06:46
* dr_willis wonders how the changes to /run/ survive a reboot.. or did i miss somthing06:47

almoxarifematcouto: look at /var/log/syslog08:32

almoxarifematcouto: look at /var/log/syslog kern.log too08:32
adknight87The only thing I came close to anything like the application I'm using is steam08:33
almoxarifeadknight87: you might try ##linux, but they will require more info than you provided here08:34

SpaceRockethow to set the DNS IP permanently ?08:35
almoxarifeSpaceRocket: via the 'networkmanager' applet08:35
SpaceRocketalmoxarife, I did but when I verify that I'm using OpenDNS it fails08:35
almoxarifeSpaceRocket: i dont know what you are trying to do, you asked a question and i gave you the simple place to make the entry08:37
matcoutoalmoxarife: a lot of ACPI ERRO in the kern.log. Would it have anything to do with these crashes?08:38
almoxarifematcouto: no idea, but it cant be good to see alot of those errors08:39
dr_willisadknight87:  ive seen the %u and other variables defined in some gnome docs.  nautilus scripting info perhaps.08:39
adknight87think you can point me to them08:40
dr_willisnope.... on my phone.08:40
almoxarifeadknight87: the %u is something that is picked up from source app, if that makes sense08:40
ServerSagealmoxarife: I want to text me when they talk to each other.  :)08:41
ServerSagedr_willis: Thats the plan, I have one sitting on my desk.  Just need the hardware to do it.08:41
llutzadknight87: http://standards.freedesktop.org/desktop-entry-spec/desktop-entry-spec-latest.html08:41
almoxarifeServerSage: if you can tap in between then run wireshark,08:41
dr_willis %u ciuld be url    ie a path to a file. or http://  type thing08:41
adknight87Suppose to work then but it doesn't08:42
ServerSagealmoxarife: Thats the bit I'm unclear about, how to tap in.  Is it enough to just put a connector in the middle?  Or do I need a box to read it?  I'm not much of a hardware guy.08:42
almoxarifeServerSage: is it ethernet line?08:43
ServerSagealmoxarife: Serial08:43
ServerSagealmoxarife: Ethernet would be simple.  :P08:44
almoxarifeServerSage: i am not sure, you sure we are talking washer and dryer?08:44
ServerSagealmoxarife: lol.  Yeah, it's a washer and a dryer.  When the washer finishes it passes what was in the washer on to the dryer.  So if you have the washer set to blankets, the dryer gets set to blankets automatically.08:45
etag_yo can anyone help me with remote veiwing?08:45
ServerSagealmoxarife: I'm hoping to exploit that and when it sends the info also fire a text to me or the wife saying, "Hey, washer is done.  Go put the clothes in the dryer you lazy bugger!"08:45
dr_willisetag_: give us more details08:46
etag_i have a vps that is running 12.04 and i would like to use a remote desktop08:46
dr_willisServerSage: some samsung appliances can do that ;)08:46
etag_i'm trying the xrdp but i get 'failed to load session ;ubuntu'08:47
etag_i'm useing win7 btw...08:47
etag_any ideas?08:47
ServerSagedr_willis: Unfortunately I don't have a samsung washer/dryer.  lol.  I'm pretty sure the wife isn't going to buy a new washer/dryer just to get this.  Thought it'd be a great task for the pi though.08:47
dr_willisetag_: ssh and x forwarding would be easier to get going08:47
almoxarifeServerSage: this is talking out my xxxxxx, if its serial then you need to receive the serial and then send it as received to the dryer :), meanwhile you would need something to send the received serial to txt, no idea how you are going to splice in though08:48
etag_ok...i have ssh...what is x forwarding? and the issue is that i don't do very good at ssh08:48
ServerSagealmoxarife: You're actually a genius, the answer was right there and I totally missed it!08:48
etag_which is why i would like the remote desktop08:48
almoxarifeServerSage: genius, yeah, thats me08:48
ServerSagealmoxarife: Two serial ports on the pi, one that reads from the washer, the other than feeds the dryer.  The pi just acts as a relay between them, and sends the text/email.  Brilliant!08:49
ServerSagealmoxarife: I was making it WAY too complicated.08:49
dr_willisrun app on server... see it ls gui on local box   is x forwarding  basically08:49
almoxarifeServerSage: yes, thats what i said, :)08:49
etag_so is there another way? or what do i need to do?08:49
petanis there a way to make system handle gracefully OOM?08:49
petanlike it kill the processes that are not crucial08:49
ServerSagealmoxarife: lol.  Thanks for the kick in the brain.  Much appreciated.08:49
etag_wait? what?08:50
almoxarifeServerSage: welcome :), say hi to the washer for me08:50
petantalking about server now but it's generally linux wide08:50
dr_willisetag_: install xming on windiws. install sshserver on the server08:50
ServerSagealmoxarife: The dryer may get jealous.08:50
almoxarifetrue, dryers are touchy that way08:50
fiveopGot ndiswrapper setup and found a driver for my chipset (Dell 1704 ...). Now when I load that driver (.inf) via ndisgtk, ndiswrapper -l says 'driver intalled, device (...) present', but when I modprobe ndiswrapper nothing happens (regarding iwconfig) and the kernel log tells me that ndiswrapper could not prepare and subsequently load the driver.08:51
etag_server has ssh08:51
ServerSageI'm sure there is a line about dryers and women there, but I'm not touching it.08:51
almoxarifeServerSage: wh do you want to know what the washer is saying?08:51
fiveopWhat next08:51
etag_so get xming?08:51
ServerSagealmoxarife: I don't need to know *what* it is saying, just that it is saying something.  That way, when the washer talks to the dryer I know it's time to move the clothes from the washer to the dryer.08:51
dr_willisetag_: err  .. yes...08:51
etag_ok...then what...once i have it...08:52
almoxarifeServerSage: got it, makes sense08:52
dr_willisServerSage: that should make it easier08:52
ServerSagealmoxarife: Sounds silly, but our washer/dryer are in the garage, and even at it's loudest we can't hear the buzzer.  And of course we forget all about it.08:52
dr_willisetag_: install it.. read its docs.. run it.. cinnect to server08:52
almoxarifeServerSage: got it, i am guessing a wind up alarm clock would not be an option08:53
ServerSagealmoxarife: How very 1980 of you.08:53
almoxarifetoo steampunk :)08:53
dr_willishour glass...08:54

qmranyone know why my galaxy nexus isn't transferring files?  it's connected "as a camera", and nautilus can see and thumbnail the files, but I can't transfer them08:54
almoxarifeServerSage: if you would, please share the conversation the washer had with the dryer when you violate their privacy08:54
ServerSagealmoxarife: I'm expecting sweet nothings.  "Mmm, baby, I'm so wet."08:54
almoxarifeServerSage: easy, its a moderated forum08:55

tf198ServerSage: Or a photoelectric sensor over the neon indicator08:55
adknight87okay so I've had the right idea but what does it look like when I click on a link say custom://special/link08:56
ServerSagetf198: Already thought of that.  The indicator comes on at different times throughout the cycle.08:56
tf198ServerSage: Doh!08:56
almoxarifeServerSage: i like it, its a off the wall idea that might sell someday08:56
adknight87Thanks btw for whoever that was linking me to the page08:57
ServerSagealmoxarife: I'm pretty sure we'll see it built into washer/dryer setups in the not too distant future.  I'm sure my washer will have a more active twitter feed than me soon.08:57
gogetalol tweeting washer08:57
ServerSagegogeta: You laugh, plenty have done it.08:58
almoxarifeServerSage: the washer does not whisper sweet nothings at the washer while in the progress of washing? that could throw a wrench into the mix08:58
almoxarifeat the dryer.......08:59
ServerSagealmoxarife: That I won't know until I snoop on their conversation.  From the looks of it, it only happens when it finishes (based solely on the dryer turning on and saying "receiving info from washer")08:59
almoxarifeServerSage: i still think you are violating some EU law09:00

hamidiadknight87: i know that with bridge i won't have any problem as i didn't have before09:54
flynsarmydoes a2label work with lsblk?09:54
hamidii changed the bridge to nat because i need it to be nat09:54
adknight87you figure a router would handle nat for ya09:55
almoxarifehamidi: the host has two ips?09:55
flynsarmyerrr, e2label09:55
hamidino the server is a virtualbox server09:55
hamidijust a host with a virtual box09:55
hamidino router exist09:55
hamidithe host yes has two ips09:56
hamidi192.168.56.101 also09:56
adknight87subnet it is then09:56
hamidisubnet is 192.168.56.xxx09:57
adknight87on everything?09:57
hamidididn't figure out what u meant, sorry09:57
juniourhamadi nat connection automatically configured09:57
adknight87That's what I was thinking09:57
adknight87it's handled by virtualbox09:58
hamidiso what can i do?09:58
adknight87I was wondering if he knew that09:58
juniourin bridge you can change ip09:58
hamidii'm a newbie in linux a bit09:58
juniourbut it must be of your router09:58
adknight87He has none09:58
adknight87it's a internal network09:58
juniourlike 192.168.0.xx09:58
almoxarifehamidi: one of the client connections should be 'bridged' to talk to the network, nat is at the mercy of the host configuration09:59
adknight87I don't see how it's going to work out if he doesn't have a switch or router10:00
adknight87Maybe that loopback10:00
almoxarifeadknight87: bridged gets dhcp from the router10:00
adknight87He has no router10:00
almoxarifeadknight87: oh10:01
juniouri told earlier10:01
adknight87so he'd have to make himself a dhcp server from the virtualbox10:01
almoxarifenevermind everything i said10:01
juniourwhat he is trying to do10:01
adknight87you really don't need a dhcp server though10:01
almoxarifeadknight87: thats running 'nat'10:01
adknight87Sounds like he's running a local server for fun10:01
adknight87is he even still here10:02
almoxarifesome people dont share the complete picture, for some reason :)10:02
juniourif he wants to run local server in he must switch to bridge10:02
VirungaHi, i'm using a framework that uses apt-get to install packages, one package fails the installation but i can't understand why. /var/log/dpkg.log shows nothing. Could you tell me where i can find any information?10:02
adknight87all I see is redundancy10:02
hamidiyes i'm here10:02
hamidino it's not for fun! :(10:02
adknight87Like I said from the start10:02
kilzmay i know the latex ubuntu version10:03
adknight87BRIDGE the connection10:03
almoxarifehamidi: you are not behind a router?10:03
compdocdoes anyone recommend a music streaming package? one that streams to any OS?10:03
almoxarifecompdoc: xbmc10:03
Virungakilz: use apt-cache showpkg10:03
hamidithere's a router in class 10.25.25.xxx which acts as dhcp10:03
juniourhamidi how you are browsing the net10:03
hamidibut it doesn't work for virtual server10:04
almoxarifehamidi: are you behind that router?10:04
adknight87not the complete picture10:04
almoxarifehamidi: are you behind that router?10:04
juniourthrough routeror switch or etc10:04
adknight87I'm amused10:04
adknight87I don't know any router standard with that ip set up.10:05
hamidibehind that router? what is it?10:05
adknight87How do you connect to the internet hamidi10:05
almoxarifehamidi: where do you get dhcp?10:05
juniourhamidi you have router  they are asking10:06
hamidiit's a router in the same network: 10.25.25.xxx10:06
hamidii think it's 25410:06
hamidiwe connect to internet by lan10:06
hamidiby using cyberoam10:06
hamidiand this is exactly why i change bridge to nat10:07
kilzvirunga: how10:07
Virungakilz: did you read the man?10:07
hamidibecause i wanted virtual servers to see internet either10:07
hamidiand have not to run crclient each10:07
adknight87Bridge > Set up ip address with domains "," <--- those are googles dns servers10:07
juniourhamidi type ifconfig10:08
hamidibecause i've only one use which may connect to the internet at the same time and this user is connected through host already10:08
juniourand check you ip10:08
almoxarifehamidi: for the vbox(client) to see the internet usually one sets it 'bridged' , but you dont want to do that or do?10:08
Name141-Hello, I'm running a live ubuntu cause I got "disk read error" trying to boot.  The drive shows up in BIOS (only at times) , but not in fdisk -l .. I assume since this happened since a breaker threw, the disk is dead? is there any other things I could try to 'bring the drive up' or mount it ?10:08
hamidiok ifconfig gives me the following ips:10:08
juniournot the guest i want for the host10:09
hamidioh u mean ipconfig?10:09
adknight87ifconfig <interface> <ip_address> [ netmask <netmask> ]10:09
juniourhamidi you have hsot windows10:10
almoxarifehamidi: does the host belong to the network 192.168.56.xxx?10:10
hamidipaste the whole?!10:10
almoxarifei give up10:10
juniouryou are connet to
flynsarmywhy is lsblk not showing my drive labels even when using -o LABEL10:11
juniourif you want a bridge connection in guest os ip should be 192.168.56.xx10:11
hamidiwhy do u mean redundancy?!10:11
adknight87I wonder if he switched to bridged network on his virtual machine10:11
almoxarifeName141-: sounds like the drive is toast10:11
adknight87your real computer is hooked up to that cat510:11
adknight87so set that program virtual box to bridged network10:12
hamidii gave the reason i can't change it back to bridge. if so i'll lose internet for virtual server10:12
adknight87Wait wait10:12
adknight87So you are telling me that your physical computer has no internet10:12
adknight87and your virtual machine does?10:12
hamidithe physical computer has internet10:13
=== alin|mobile is now known as alinmear
adknight87CHANGE IT TO BRIDGE10:13
hamidino physical does have but virtual has no access to internet10:13
adknight87and change the ip concurrent to the physical network you are attached to10:13
hamidithe only way i may give the virtual servers internet is to share the host's internet via NAT10:13
juniourhamidi you want the internet access to virtual os10:13
adknight87Bridged with dns servers set up10:14
adknight87That's how you do10:14
almoxarifehamidi: or via bridged, unless the router does not allow you to connect, hence no internet10:14
hamidiit's not directly connected10:14
Name141-almoxarife: me too.  I can access the CD which is SATA, so I guess the SATA controller didn't fry.. and the NIC and video card works, etc10:14
almoxarifehamidi: so you want internet via 'nat' , because the host has internet10:14
hamidieach mac must use user/pass to connect10:14
hamidiand i've only one user10:15
adknight87Hey hamidi do you have to sign in to use the internet before you browse10:15
hamidialmoxarife: exactly10:15
inner_peacecan i mount partition under root direct rather than / mnt  or   /media  is it applicable ?10:15
hamidiadknight87: exactly10:15
almoxarifehamidi: ok, so your host must offer up dhcp to the client(vbox) so that it can access the internet10:15
juniourhamidi so you have to use nat for that10:16
dr_willisinner_peace:  yiou mean mount it i / ?10:16
dr_willisinner_peace:  yiou mean mount it  to  / ?10:16
hamidithe virtual servers may use NAT to access the internet, but in this case samba doesn't work10:16
juniouras you said you have to sign in before browse net10:16
juniourya it will not work10:16
inner_peacedr _willis  yes exactly10:16
adknight87smells fishy for people to sign into something just to browse the net10:17
juniourhamidi you want to aceess the sharefolder for host10:17
hamidiif they use NAT, only one sign in which takes place at host is enough10:17
dr_willisinner_peace:  i dont think you just swap / around. you could do A Chroot10:17
almoxarifehamidi: samba , which is the samba host, the vbox or the actual host?10:17
hamidiand the virtual servers won't need to sign in separately10:17
dr_willisadknight87:  my routers 'guest' feature does that10:17
hamidino! i need to access server's files in host10:18
adknight87dr_willis: shush xD you would come up a netgear10:18
sir-mehey i can't watch hd movie on my netbook, how can i convert the movie to play without lagging and loosing sound on the netbook10:18
almoxarifehamidi: so your vbox(host) is the samba host10:18
hamidithat's it and i can't help10:18
dr_willisadknight87:  is a cisco i belive10:18
juniourhamidi you run server in guest and you want to access in host10:18
inner_peaceDr _willis   :you mean it isnt applicable10:18
almoxarifehamidi: is the vbox(host) firewalled?10:19
adknight87dr_willis: I stand corrected10:19
dr_willissir-me:  winff, arista, ffmpeg, mencoder.. all can convert10:19
adknight87hamidi: it's like hotel internet10:19
inner_peacei dont understand swap in your answer so please explain more10:19
almoxarifehamidi: is the vbox(host) firewalled?10:19
hamidijunior: yes10:19
dr_willisinner_peace:   swap = swich = change out10:20

hamidithe host is a windows which is installed in a physical machine10:20
adknight87The only way I can see this network working is if he had a second router10:20
juniourhamadi you can acces the file in host but gust will not have inter net k10:20
juniourjus do wt i say10:21
almoxarifehamidi: host=machine running vbox, client=vbox os, which is the samba host?10:21
juniourhamidi change connection to bridge10:21
almoxarifei think its the host10:21
almoxarifehamidi: host=machine running vbox, client=vbox os, which is the samba host?10:21

DNDguys! i have HP elite 8200 with windows 7. i wanted to dual boot it with ubuntu 12.0410:34
DNDi did shrink the C: partition but when setting up partition in ubuntu the unallocated space says "unusable"10:35
DNDwhat's the problem?10:35
=== alinmear is now known as alin|mobile
llutzDND: how many partitions do you have?10:35
DNDinitially windwos has 4 partitions. 1 is C: the two others are 100mb each which is system partition hidden. then last is the hp recovery 8.7gb10:36
llutzDND: you can have a max of 4 partitions, change one into an extended with logical drives if you want to install ubuntu10:37
llutzDND: in your case that means to reinstall windows i guess10:37
DNDbut this is new computer with preinstalled OS10:37
=== alin|mobile is now known as alinmear
DNDi want to preserve windows and the recovery partition :(10:38
adknight87welcome back dr_willis10:38
DNDso formatting the whole drive will solve this problem?10:39
dr_willisnormally im on my znc server so you never see me leave. ;-)10:39
DNDthen purchase another windows?10:39
llutzDND: change partition layout10:39
adknight87guess I'm lucky today10:39
adknight87Download same copy of windows use key that came with machine10:40
DNDim reading this one http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=168644010:41
adknight87I'd have to say the recovery partition is for the drivers!10:41
almoxarifeDND: unusable i believe means 'not formated to ext4' ,10:42
llutzalmoxarife: unusable as in "unallocated space, but already 4 partitions present"10:43
adknight87he could always backup the recovery partition10:43
albinki need help10:43
llutzadknight87: lots of ways but he has to remove at least 1 partition10:44
albinkrsyslog not logging to /var/log/auth.log after upgrading from 10.04 to 12.0410:44
albinkstrace of the forked process says Permission denied10:44
adknight87So ubuntu doesn't like 5 partitions on one physical hard drive10:44
albinklog file is zunder root.adm ownership10:44
llutzadknight87: thats not a ubuntu-thing10:45
almoxarifewhat is wrong with an extended partion?10:46
llutzalmoxarife: nothing, but he needs to change his parttion layout for that10:46
compdocadknight87, if all the partitions are mbr, its nothig to do with ubuntu10:46
llutzadknight87: the MBR can not hold more than 4 (primary) partition-entries, thus the limitation.10:47
compdocyou can use a gpt partition too10:47
adknight87It's a cap10:47
adknight87OH NOS!10:47
llutzcompdoc: even than he will lose his data, or can you convert bios->gpt on the fly now?10:48
compdocoh, well no, he will lose his data if he tries10:48
stroodlepupanybody here owns an asus k55vd laptop?10:49
adknight87more then 4 partitions there10:49

almoxarifeadknight87: with compiz?11:30
rsiskabazhang: mainly disable touchap tap. Also in all other WMs (dwm, icewm, *box) Alt+Shift swtiches to Russian, which isn't in among my layouts...11:30
adknight87almoxarife: yes yes lol I there was no tearing on the intel graphics on compiz11:30
bazhangrsiska, did you have ibus installed? that sounds like ibus behavior11:31
bazhangrsiska, let me check my system settings for the touchpad settings11:31
almoxarifeadknight87: so use intel11:32
rsiskaAccording to apt-cache, I have ibus 1.4.1-3ubuntu1 installed.11:32
adknight87almoxarife: doesn't play steam games on intel card11:32
bazhangrsiska, so you may wish to disable that to avoid in future. as far as the touchpad settings under mouse and touchpad is where you would set it11:33
almoxarifeadknight87: dont use compiz?11:33
adknight87almoxarife: tried metacity still get tearing11:34
almoxarifeadknight87: again, i am using kde, for light i use qtrazor11:34
adknight87almoxarife: I don't think it's the window manager11:35
rsiskabazhang: so, is it safe to uninstall ibus?11:35
* almoxarife does not steam11:35

BrixSati need help with graphics card (Intel Corporation Device [8086:0be2] (rev 09))11:40
TJ-adknight87: Same thing, different terms :)   Have you configured the AMD/ATI driver to sync to vertical retrace? Apparently the catalyst driver has a specific option, too, something like "prevent tearing on desktop"11:40
bazhangBrixSat, whats the specific issue. please be very clear11:40
rsiskabazhang: no luck... I have ibus killed/uninstalled. When I open gnome-control-center other WMs, I can _see_ that touchpad clicks are disbled, but they aren't :(11:40

TJ-adknight87: also, for the hybrid issue, check out post #503 of this forums thread http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=1232476111:40

adknight87I know it's a issue11:41
adknight87I've been following that thread forever11:41
TJ-adknight87: OK... are there any clues in the /var/log/Xorg.0.log or ~/.xsession-errors logs?11:41
rsiskagustav__, That was it! Thank you very much!11:42
BrixSatbazhang:  any help?11:42
gustav__rsiska: Welcome, sir. :)11:42
bazhangBrixSat, with what11:42
BrixSatbazhang:  with my graphics card that only shows low resolution11:42
TJ-adknight87: Is the tearing on an internal LVDS panel, or external on HDMI, DVI or VGA?11:43
bazhangBrixSat, what resolution are you getting, and what were you expecting; how old is that card11:43
BrixSatbazhang: 1024*768 would expect 1360*76811:43
TJ-8086:0be2 is GMA360011:43
BrixSatbazhang:  my card has less than a year11:44
bazhangBrixSat, and the second half of my question?11:44
adknight87TJ-: There's a link problem but I've solved that11:44
bazhangBrixSat, what have you tried? xrandr? setting a customized xorg.conf?11:44
TJ-adknight87: OK... without clues in the logs its like throwing darts whilst dizzy and blindfolded  :p11:44
BrixSatbazhang:  im in xorg.conf but dunno what to change here11:45

Kartagis!find libtiff511:48
ubottuFound: libtiff5, libtiff5-alt-dev, libtiff5-dev11:48
TJ-adknight87: Have you tried removing /etc/X11/xorg.conf to a safe place and letting the driver auto-configure? There are reported errors as a result of the current xorg.conf11:50
adknight87xorg would end up empty11:50
BrixSatbazhang: My xorg.conf is the one generated by xorg11:50
TJ-adknight87: I also think you've got a mix-up of driver versions... "PowerXpress: Diagnostic output from /usr/lib64/fglrx/switchlibGL:11:50
TJ-library file /usr/lib32/fglrx/fglrx-libGL.so.1.2 not exist, can't switch"11:50
TJ-adknight87: no xorg.conf would be preferable. X should auto-configure itself these days11:51
adknight87TJ-: it's a link to the file11:51
adknight87let me go and seek out if the link is still there11:51
TJ-adknight87: There's also segfaults reported. You need to sort those out by cleaning up the driver issues. No wonder you're getting tearing :)11:52
adknight87TJ-: it's beta drivers give me a break LOL11:52
TJ-adknight87: segfaults means serious - that's not a 'beta' driver issue, its more like a bad installation issue11:53
adknight87What? I've removed everything from the last install so it was a fresh install of the beta drivers11:54
adknight87Btw I'm not having issues now this actually works it's when I switch over to the intel graphics that is when I get all the oops I can do crap errors11:55
newestnickhey guys? Is it normal for ubuntu's 12.04  rsyslog to run under syslog user?11:56
newestnick'cause upgrading from 10.04 broke loggin11:56
newestnicki had to switch rsyslog to run under root so everything could continue working good11:56
newestnickis it ok or there is a purpose for rsyslog to run underprivileged?11:57
TJ-adknight87: Well that PowerXpress is the switcher code to the IGP so that explains the issue. It is likely that the drivers aren't correctly configured for hybrid operation, and probably you're ending up with the VESA driver rather than the Intel driver for the IGP11:58
TJ-newestnick: rsylogd should run as the user syslog. The auth.log should be owned by syslog:adm11:59
adknight87I'm on the ati card at the moment11:59
newestnickit is owned by root.adm as other log files from old 10.04 version11:59
adknight87update-alternatives: warning: forcing reinstallation of alternative /usr/lib/fglrx/ld.so.conf because link group x86_64-linux-gnu_gl_conf is broken.12:00
newestnickshould i chown the files? that doesn't sound nice. i started rsyslog under root as before, is tah ok????12:00
newestnicki don't see any reason why rsyslog shouldn't run as roiot12:00
TJ-newestnick: rsylogd runs as an unprivileged user for a good reason.12:01
newestnickon every other distro and even old ubuntu it runs under root12:01
newestnickhm? which is that12:01
icerootnewestnick: the user "syslog"12:01
newestnickand for other distors there isn't that "good reson"12:01
newestnickno i meant which reason :) lol12:02
GenesisAquarionmy wifi is not remembering the password or something like it12:02
icerootnewestnick: the reason is "dont use root if it is not needed"12:02
GenesisAquarionI can connect to the wifi but it's not stsying12:02
newestnickbut why didnt' the ubuntu upgrade then chown the files it needed or at least said there will be privilege dropping12:02

FrostbyteHi there, I have a persistent live usb made up, for a month or so - and as of latelly I've been noticing huge lags and I/O with flush-8:16 taking up almost all the cpu - is there anything I can do to lighten it up? (And if possible any other optimisations to reduce disk I/O since I run from USB)12:40

xckpd7brontosaurusrex: I think I already have apache, but it's just being used on one utlility / application running on one of my ports (e.g. site.site.com:10000)12:41
xckpd7brontosaurusrex: so I just now need to configure it to serve files (don't care if it's password protected) on another port?12:41
katsuneFrostbtye, maybe your flash drive is slow, how about using a usb 3.0 flash drive12:41
TJ-Frostbyte: Is it getting full? If there's lots of random I/O going on that could be upsetting any flash wear-levelling the device does12:42
Frostbytekatsune: I didn't have any problems a few weeks ago12:42
FrostbyteTJ- : nah, casper-rw and home-rw partitions do have free space left\12:42
FrostbyteI have also installed preload, but doesn't make any difference12:43
xckpd7brontosaurusrex: cuz right now I'm getting the "It Works" Apache page when I go to my domain12:43
TJ-Frostbyte: how about the underlying flash wear-levelling though? Every time a block is unlinked a new block is used to contain the modified contents12:43
ToyImpGood morning =)12:43
Frostbytethe flash drive is around 2 months old, since it's purchase12:43
FrostbyteTJ- could it have worn out already?12:44
Frostbytebtw, when I don't see flush-8:16 in conky, the system responds blazing fast12:44
FrostbyteI only face those spikes, and I don't know where they come from12:44
TJ-Frostbyte: Well, lets imagine it doesn't do wear-levelling. That could imply the same physical flash blocks are being erased and re-written to... and they can wear out in less than 1000 erase cycles, especially for MLCs12:44
TJ-Frostbyte: alternatively, it may be just that you've got a process that likes flushing data to disk, maybe a swap file? Not a fab idea to put swaps on most flash devices.12:45
Frostbyteno swap used, at least gnome-system-monitor shows swap is 012:46
FrostbyteI made sure there's no swap12:46
FrostbyteI did a quick googling and figured that it writes from RAM to disk, but I can't figure why now.. all of a sudden12:46
FrostbyteI'd appreciate it if you could help me investigate12:47
katsuneFrostbyte: I would say monitor your processes first,.12:47
thesadmafiosoThe ubiquitous question of "why" . . . it gets me every time ~_^12:47
qdbhello. i installed ubuntu 12 04, updated, switched to russian, but after a restart it has changed to english, and russian is not selectable any more. what i made also: installed 2 brother printer drivers from brother site, installed gnome-panel, and tried it.12:50
TJ-Frostbyte: First thing is to use something like iotop to see what's the most active12:50
YokoBRfound out that ati proprietary drivers (legacy) are not compatible with Xorg 1.13, so i'm going to Mint :(12:50
TJ-Frostbyte: Does the system have enough RAM? If it is under pressure the kernel will evict pages from its cache and then have to fetch them again later when needed12:51
FrostbyteI'm currently booting the persistent USB under a P4 @ 3.0GHz with 2GB ram12:51
Frostbyteshould be sufficient, since conky shows I'm only using around 500+ mb out of 2GB12:52
BluesKajHi folks12:52
Frostbyteeven under peak conditions12:52
Frostbyteas for CPU resources, most of the time, I see Xorg, compiz and the flush-8:1612:53
Frostbyteexcept when I have a chromium in background12:53
TJ-Frostbyte: OK, but how about the cache usage? The 'free' memory is used by the kernel for cache and buffers and gets evicted when some process needs more RAM. As I said, try iotop see if it gives any clue as to which process is responsible for forcing the flushes - if they are the reason12:53
FrostbyteI'm apt-getting iotop now12:53

FrostbyteChucrute301: To clarify, frostbite was the BF3 engine - frostbyte is a codename for some mushkin dimms :P13:02
TJ-flushes are done in the background, so lockups is a weird one unless the kernel is freezing. Have you checked /var/log/kern.log carefully for any indication that the kernel is reporting problems at the moments the lock-ups occur?13:03

Chucrute301Why my unity is slow13:18
FrostbyteTJ-: Perhaps since compiz and Xorg do consume some cpu from time to time - switching to a lighter interface than unity might help?13:18
RamchandraApteChucrute301: My integrated runs unity nicely.13:19
RamchandraApteChucrute301: you can try unity-2d with no window effects13:19

xckpd7question: I added a new user in ubuntu and I'm trying to log on with it... I'm absolutely sure I'm entering in the password correctly.... do I need to grant privilege to access certain folders for it to be successful?13:25
xckpd7cuz it's saying permission denied13:25
thesadmafiosoit may be locked13:25
xckpd7I did sudo adduser and added a pass13:26
thesadmafiosotry switching to your admin account and looking at the new user account13:26
xckpd7how once I'm on there13:26
thesadmafiosowhat are you running?13:26

thesadmafiosowell, i run 10.04 but for me from the panel it's "system > Administration > Users and Groups13:26
xckpd7thesadmafioso: terminal13:27
xckpd7thesadmafioso: I don't have the gui stuff13:27
theadminxckpd7: Well, you should make sure the login shell is set to something sane (/bin/bash, /usr/bin/zsh or such), that the home folder exists13:28
TJ-adknight87: Is the .desktop files associated with your x-scheme-handler/... being read?13:28
theadminxckpd7: If you used the "adduser" script it should've taken care of that for you, if you used the old "useradd" way you may need to set all that stuff manually13:28
thesadmafiosoxckpd7: man usermod may help also13:28
thesadmafiosotheadmin: didn't know that difference between adduser and useradd :P13:29
xckpd7theadmin: I just did $ sudo adduser foo13:29
xckpd7theadmin: and added a password13:30

theadminthesadmafioso: iirc "adduser" comes from FreeBSD or something as a matter of fact, and has been ported to Linux. May be wrong though.13:30

=== ubuntu is now known as Guest62437
xckpd7well actually scratch that, let me describe anyway13:32
thesadmafiosoxckpd7: maybe you can "usermod -L " to disable password and try to see if it drops you in?13:32
xckpd7I just did su <user> and that worked fine13:32
xckpd7though it didn't kick me out of my own home folder...13:32
theadminxckpd7: That's not surprising, su doesn't update the environment13:32
theadminxckpd7: Use "sudo -iu username" instead.13:33

YokoBRhey guys, isn't gallium3D dead?14:06
Touhou11andytheg: There are flash/html 5 uploaders which let you drag and drop, and not showing a listing is up to the person coding the webpage14:06
andytheghi YokoBR14:07
babyswizzplease am running lxde and i can see a uxterminal, xterminal and lxterminal, please wats the difference14:07
andythegTouhou11, yea, i was hoping for more 'bundled' software .. but thank you.  i will keep that in mind as a 'roll your own' alternative.14:07
Touhou11andytheg: SWFUpload is a very popular one14:07
andythegTouhou11, i hate flash :)14:08
andythegbut thank you.14:08
andythegi will look that up and find an html5 equiv14:08
theadminbabyswizz: uxterm and xterm are "traditional" terminals, some script might want them present. Generally, they are feature-less (bad color support etc), so just stick to LXTerminal14:08
Touhou11andytheg: Fair enough, though more users probably have Flash than HTML 5 capable browsers14:08
Touhou11andytheg: Depends on your audience14:08
theadminTouhou11: Pretty much any browser is HTML5-capable nowadays14:09

So I install those drives, sync them, etc etc whatever, they're running with a mount point and file system. What's the best way to port the data? Can I plug one of the 500's into a USB/SATA bridge and transfer from there? Will the data be there with one drive off USB like that?14:42

nikolamalso check what is the tool you were making usb boot drive with.17:19
SwedeMikeezioa: probably driver problem.17:19
nikolamezioa, i ma not sure, maybe you could complain to manufacturer site, since they are usually ones that do not make driver behave right.17:20
morphisshi bros and sis........im Morphiss binbash.......!!a greeting for ALL ;)17:20
pznwhen I do "netstat -tln" and I see this "tcp 0 0 :::1234 :::* LISTEN" does this mean that it is listen in tcp port 1234 in ipv4, ipv6 or both?17:20
SwedeMikeezioa: you could look into using backported drivers from a newer kernel, but it depends on what ubuntu version you're using.17:20
jgcampbell300well im gona go double check my bios ... thanks for the info17:20
nikolamezioa, I figured something like that on some occasions. Try choosing best supported hardware for Linux, avoid unfriendly manufacturers.17:21
SwedeMikepzn: I'd imagine so. I only have dual stack stuff listen, so I don't know what an IPv6 only service would show as.17:21

brightsparksit says in an error message: Unable to mount location: Error initialising camera: -60: Could not lock the device18:53
brightsparksand  Error initialising camera: -1: Unspecified error18:53
bobweaverGandalfB,  also please do this          modinfo nvidia_current | pastebinit18:54
GandalfBBobweaver,what is the best way to do that -18:54
bobweaverGandalfB,  dont worry about lightdm for the minute plz run      modinfo nvidia_current | pastebinit18:55
brightsparksok I unplugged the usb cable and reconnected and now the device has mounted successfully...18:56
bobweaverGandalfB,  let us also see       withdrivers=$(lspci -vnnk | grep VGA) && echo  $withdrivers | pastebinit18:57

brightsparksok I can see the picture files on the camera media card but I am unable to transfer them to my computer - unspecified error message but previously I had an error message saying that I didn't have permission to move the files.18:58
bobweaverbrightsparks,  where is sd or whatever card mounted ?18:59
dr_willis_its possible it got mounted with options where the user cant fully access the device. but the root user most likely could18:59
dr_willis_the mount command should show what optionsit was mounted with19:00
brightsparksbobweaver: if I go to the root Media folder a folder called SD is showing there19:00
bobweaverbrightsparks,  can you pastebin the output of          mount19:00

trismGandalfB: ah yeah, sudo apt-get install linux-headers-$(uname -r);19:28
trismGandalfB: you have one of the packages but you need the arch specific version too19:29
trismGandalfB: you may want linux-headers-generic too so future kernel upgrades will rebuild the nvidia module19:29
trismGandalfB: make sure you type that command exactly, I see bobweaver posted it earlier19:30
GandalfBtrism, do I get that with apt-get install linux-headers-generic ?19:30
trismGandalfB: yes19:31
GandalfBthanks... learning slowly :S19:31
ubottuTo install the Linux (kernel) headers, open a terminal and: sudo apt-get install linux-headers-$(uname -r) To install headers for libraries, you need the accompanying -dev packages19:32
bobweaverGandalfB,  all that $()  means is grab the output of something and use it. so in this case  you are asking for the output of uname -r19:32
bobweaverwhich is kernel version19:32
bobweaverif that helps19:32
trismGandalfB: after that, check: dkms status; to see if the module built19:33

=== [entropy] is now known as [ent]
GandalfBok- the bug / issue dosn't mean much to me :S19:51
trismbobweaver: the problem is in quantal linux-headers-3.5.0-17 is installed by default, which provides linux-headers so satisfies the dep, but it doesn't also have the arch dependent headers19:52
trismbobweaver: i think it is partially a problem with the iso since I see no point in having the arch independent headers installed by default with the arch dep ones19:52
crackerjackzbrb gotta run to the store before they close19:53
bobweavertrism,  can Build Depends have things like linux-headers-$(uname -r)19:53
GandalfBTrism, ok - I've found were I broke it.   it was in the software sources dialogbox, under additonal drivers, I changed the driver for the nvidia card19:53
newbie211Any soul here....?19:53
trismbobweaver: no, see comment #7 of the bug19:55

GandalfBTrism, Bobweaver.  so if I've understood this correctly,  when I changed the drivers in the software sources dialog, it tried to install the new packages,  these were dependant on linux-headers and linux-headers-generic, from reading, linux-headers-generic is not correctly installed in 12.10 distro, so by getting and isntalling those we corrected the issue.    Bobweaver used lsmod and lspci to identify that I20:01
GandalfB had nvidia card, but the modual (driver) not correctly loaded.20:01
