DJMontyI plan to format the hard drive of this pc, as the previous owners left a load of programs on it. They didn't have the os disks, and I don't have a usb stick or disk to put ubuntu on00:10

Guest84742MERRY CHRISTMAS!00:10
bekksDJMonty: How is that related to Ubuntu? And without an installation medium (OEM in your case) you cannot reinstall it.00:11
DJMontyBekks: I planned to put ubuntu on afterwards, and I had a few followup questions00:11

nurupois there any backup software on ubuntu 11.04 live cd?00:14
nurupoi tried to backup using dd, but realized it backups the unused space too.00:14
nuruponow i'm pipelining dd with gzip as some people suggested on some forums (googled), hope that will help.00:14
nurupoi'm not very sure if that will really help, since the empty space may contain some hard to compress garbage instead of, say, zeros. so, i'm curious if there is some other tool on the live cd to backup a hard drive more efficiently.00:14

jiwanhey i can't use irssi why?00:14
Lubuntufanit's ok :)00:15
Lubuntufanthe only weird thing I've done with my setup is installed a testing kernel00:15
Lubuntufandon't know if that has anything to do with it00:16
SolarisBoyLubuntufan: no i dont think it's nefarious neccesarily - maybe just a bad permission on a file elevating to sudo should allow you to print apparmor_status fine - if not i would *aassume* a file permission was off somewhere - assuming you dont have a bunch of custom stuff in there you can try to apt-get install --reinstall it and see if that fixes it00:16
monkeyjuicejiwan: what do you mean you cant use it00:16
SolarisBoyLubuntufan: dought it - testing kernel shouldn't affect those userland apps directly like that00:16
SolarisBoyLubuntufan: what version of ubuntu do you run?00:17
Lubuntufanlubuntu 12.1000:17
jiwani mean for irc, i was trying to use irssi client but, it showing problem that 'could not resolve host name'00:17

SolarisBoyLubuntufan: can you post to pastebin a recreation of the error (type command and reproduce error), and the ls -ltRh /etc/apparmor* and ls -ltrhd /etc/apparmor* ?00:20

FloodBot1jiwan: Please don't flood; use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste; don't use Enter as punctuation.00:21
SolarisBoyjiwan: locate the incorrect name and investigate00:21
jiwani have tried so many but, i got tired00:22
SolarisBoyjiwan: its simple - you can open a terminal use ping,dig etc to test a name - and you can also check online to see if your server entry is accurate or maybe if something on their side is changed and your config must be updated - but you need to investigate00:23
jiwanok thank you i will try it00:24

marenostrumlcabreza1, Just like me: 12.04 and 4 GB total RAM. I don't have problems except those sometimes I have with firefox on heavy java script sites. I suspect od them. Apart from probable fan problems. That's another story; you know.02:16

JAIMEi have had banshee working before but now it doesnt want to play!02:19
marenostrumlcabreza1, What happens when you quir Firefox altogether? In fact its not Firefox its those nasty scripts of sites. I advice to use NoScript and let them in a controlled manner.02:20

marenostrumlcabreza1, I like basic interface and perforamnce as well. Some problem -if to call problem- with Ubuntu is more related with some services (such as some automatic update check things and so on) than interface. There may be performance decreases when they start. Again, good luck!02:28
elkingreyI've been trying to access my sister's machine remotely but have had no luck. She's using ubuntu and I'm using Fedora. She's got all the boxes checked(she texted me a picutre to make sure) but I still cannot connect. On my end, I specify VNC, put in the IP address(without specifying port, nor do I use host ssh as a tunnel) and hit connect. Then nothing happens on either end. Eventually I get an error sign. On her end I02:29
elkingrey walked her through connecting to her router, we set up remote access and enabled UPnP as well. Anybody have any ideas what we could be missing?02:29
marenostrumlcabreza1, You can check the CPU and RAM consumption of the programs via top command from terminal. (Quit with q)02:30
Guest94121elkingrey: do you understand public and private IPs. are you in the same network with her?02:32
lcabreza1marenostrum: Thanks : 9.6%sys 18.7%us02:33
marenostrumlcabreza1, By the way, for those nasty resource consuming scrits of some sites: I found almost no difference between cpu consumption of Firefox and Chromium. So I don't blame Firefox.02:33
elkingreyGuest94121: No, she is at a different IP02:34

marenostrumlcabreza1, Is virtual machine up?02:36
marenostrumlcabreza1, Maybe but you say its not so good after you quit Firefox.02:37
elkingreygotoguy: When I get things working, shouldn't it be under her user? I mean, she'll see what I'm doing, so it shoudl be her user02:38
lcabreza1marenostrum:  yes thats right ..virtual machine is up (but its only uses 1GB RAM) and only running one application on it02:39
gotoguyelkingrey, Yeah Make sure the firewall is open on ports: 5900 and (5901 for virtual).02:39
torgeorgI don't understand why it loads the radeon driver when I have  Driver      "vesa" under Section "Device"02:39
elkingreyI asked her to go to her firewall settings, and when she goes to dash-home, and searches firewall, nothing shows up. What gives?02:40
gotoguyelkingrey, does she have a router?02:40
marenostrumlcabreza1, In my experience Web site script issues (I'm calling so rather than Firefox issues) makes Firefox to consume a lot portion of CPU. I didn't realize a RAM issue. Problem is more related with CPU in my cases. And you know, our RAMs, 4 GB is not too much under todays conditions. But for me, 4 GB is OK. More than OK.02:40
Guest94121elkingrey: if that didn't work try teamviewer..02:40
gotoguyelkingrey, You have to open those ports on the router AND the firewall if she's running one.02:41
gotoguyI do this all the time without any other services, but some time it takes a little tweaking.02:41
elkingreyshe's not running a firewall on her machine, but she may be on her router02:41
gotoguythe router is probably running NAT, and you have to open those ports for VNC.02:42
gotoguyelse you have to port forward using ssh, but still you would need port 22 open for ssh.02:43

Guest94121gotoguy: is the same as VNC, this tool i use for long team for personal use is free.. is a great tool.02:47
marenostrumcodrus, Isn't it a possibility to download the ISO and write your own CD? (I don't know if 32 CD works for your situation or not.)02:48
elkingreyOkay, so we disabled the SPI firewall on her router and still nothing. WHen I hit connect on my end it's just a black screen, and then it eventually says the ip is closed. Nothing ever pops up on her screen to notify her that I am trying to connect02:48
gotoguyelkingrey, just make sure the router is open on ports: 5900 and (5901 for virtual desktop).02:48
Guest94121elkingrey: it will not work is a private ip you using.02:48
gotoguycan you ping her IP and are you sure it's the correct one.02:49
elkingreyI don't know how to open up those ports, why would I have to if firewall is disabled. Also, why would it not work for a private IP? That doesn't make any sense/. I've had people connect to my ip before02:49
Guest94121elkingrey: trust me am an expert in this area..02:50
elkingreyhow do I ping her ip02:50
gotoguyelkingrey, private ip don't mean crap. But you could check if its the router for sure by bypassing it. but she would need to restart the network service or reboot.02:51
Guest94121elkingrey: public ips can be seen on the internet but private ips can not be. so what you are trying to do is connect via the internet.. you need a server to create this tunel for you..02:52
lcabreza1marenostrum: i'll try to do some tweaking and probably disable some services not needed ..02:52
gotoguyelkingrey, then she would be open to the internet but atleast you could check it that way.02:52
Guest94121elkingrey: trust me just you teamviewer and tell her also to download teamviewer then you don't have to disable your firewall which is not safe..02:53
gotoguyprivate IP means behind a router using NAT.02:53
marenostrumlcabreza1, That's the best. In fact I have to do the same. I just didn't want to deal with it but I'll do.02:53
gotoguyThat's all, and if you open the router right, it will work.02:54
elkingreygotoguy I don't know what else to do with the router. I've disabled the firewall and enabled UPnP and remote access. What else?02:55
Guest94121gotoguy: yes using nat or pat. so you cannot connect to them.02:55
codrusmarenostrum: the computer I messed up is the only one I have access to that has a cd/dvd drive02:56
gotoguyelkingrey, you have to find the port forward section in it, or some have a feature called DMZ.02:56

c_smith{bosco},  first off, what version of Ubuntu are you attempting this with?03:17
c_smith{bosco}, 12.10 is the easiest version currently to work with UEFI. 12.04 doesn't work with UEFI as easily.03:18
KI4ROWhat's the best package (least hassle) to transfer my CDs to my MP3 player?03:22
blnkbosco, I'm a bit of a noob myself, but I needed to format with some linux file systems for it to dual boot. I had given 100gb to an NTFS  for windows, 100gb to ext3 for ubuntum then it also required a linux-swap file system. All that was an option to me when I was installing03:22
jeniahello everyone03:24
blnkKl4RO what MP3 player are you using? if you are using an iPod, it will be a bit difficult03:24
{bosco}c_smith, 12.10 x6403:25
kvothetechyou can use ipods in linux they suck but you can use them03:25
{bosco}c_smith, installed from a usb since i have no cdrom drive03:25

blnkKI4RO, on the right hand side, you should see your CD listed under "devices". have you tried right clicking on the disk and selecting "extract to library"?03:33
blnkKI4RO, woops, I meant left hand side03:33
c_smithand 8 is too different than 7 to have anything I know about 7 to apply.03:33
{bosco}c_smith, that is ok i will be able to work around that i just cant seem to get the partions to boot right with03:33
KI4ROblnk, They appear to be WAV files on the CD and, of course, are huge.  I was hoping to find a simple easy to use program that would convert them to MP3 "automatically"03:33
{bosco}so any help? c_smith is better than none03:34
KI4ROblnk, Have not extracted to library03:34
c_smith{bosco}, all I can suggest safely is not really the most efficient, but that would be buying a Windows 8 disc, doing a clean install of that, then try and install Ubuntu.03:34
blnkKI4RO, in rhythmbox, go to the edit menu, then go to preferences03:35
KI4ROblnk, Okay03:35
c_smithother than that, I don't know enough to suggest anything without a high risk of leading you wrong.03:36
blnkKI4RO under music tab, at the bottom, is the prefered format "MPEG Layer 3"?03:36
{bosco}c_smith, i just did a clean install of windows 8 that is how it looks after install c_smith i dont care if it leads me wrong i can fix it if it does dont worry at this point i am willing to try anything?03:37
KI4ROblnk ogg vorbis?03:38
c_smith{bosco}, ah, I have no other suggestions, sadly.03:38
blnkchange it to "MPEG Layer 3 Audio" from the drop box03:38
c_smithlike I said, I know nothing about Windows 803:38
OerHeks{bosco},  maybe this page is any help >> https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UEFI03:38
dimas_blank screen03:38
KI4ROblnk, It is set to MPEG Layer 3 now03:38
vjacobhiya. how does one know which vnc client to choose? e.g. ultra, tight, real, etc. etc.03:39
{bosco}c_smith, i know you dont what would you do to install linux at this point just by default03:39
blnkKI4RO now take not where your library location is. and if you extract your CD to your library, I think it should extract the tracks into MP3 format into your library03:39
blnkKI4RO from there, you should be able to drag and drop them into your MP3 player03:40
KI4ROblnk, Will they just transfer to the MP3 player?03:40
blnkKI4RO actually, your mp3 player might even show up on Rhythmbox and you can right click on it and "sync to library" i think03:41
c_smith{bosco}, because I have no use for windows myself, I'd simply hose out windows (get rid of it) and install Ubuntu as the only OS.03:41
c_smith{bosco}, but I take it you need windows.03:41
UziI'm having issues connecting to a remote printer.    The way ubuntu machine is setup:   I have a cat5 cable running into my other pc which is wirelessly connected to my router.   The printer is routed to that pc.  This linux pc doesn't have a wifi card nor do I have the funds right now to get one.       On the windows machine I set LPR on and have been trying to install the driver for my printer which is a "Brother MFC-J815W"03:41
{bosco}  c_smith well i dont need windows i just like to kinda keep up on just for the fun of it i dont need it at all really03:41
c_smith{bosco}, if you don't need it, it may end up being easier to just set up Ubuntu to be the only thing.03:42
blnkKI4RO, I think it should work. most mp3 players(excluding ipods) just need the mp3 files dropped into their storage03:44

blnkKI4RO, it should bring you to the Software Center and you can hit the install button03:57
MishaX2So basically you enter ssh user@remotemachine.... it asks for your password... everything goes okay, but you're on your local machine?03:57
KI4ROblnk Thank you sir...I'll give it a try03:57
klloveallyep, exactly03:58
blnkKI4RO, I'll stick around here for a little longer so you can let me know if it works03:58
kllovealland both my local and remote machine have the same username/password, so idk...03:58
MishaX2Okay, that's a really weird problem... hmm03:59
klloveallmy thoughts exactly04:00
KI4ROblnk, Says I already have it...since 04 04 1204:02

thufir_how or where is my secondary hard drive?  I want to browse the files which are on it.   https://gist.github.com/437773404:02
MishaX2klloveall anything suspicious when you run ssh -v ?04:02
klloveallmishax2, I'm wondering if somehow its routing the ssh request back to my local machine, for some unknown reason?04:02
klloveallmishax2, yeah, for some reason it has the IP address of the remote machine listed as
klloveallit should be
MishaX2Something might be wrong in your /etc/hosts file04:05
blnkKI4RO, yout might need "libavcodec-extra-52" available here http://packages.ubuntu.com/lucid/libavcodec-extra-5204:05
MishaX2what's in there? anything mapped to other than your local machinename?04:05
klloveallmishax2, all it lists in there is localhost and THOR (the name of my local machine). There's also some IPv6 addresses (none of which are the name of my remote machine), but that's it.04:06
UziI cant seem to get my remote printer setup can someone please help?    This is the driver I need:  I can't seem to get it added to the print program (i'm using the gui because im tired and clicking through the steps..)    http://welcome.solutions.brother.com/bsc/public_s/id/linux/en/download_prn.html#MFC-J615W04:06
thufir_how do I mount sdb?  https://gist.github.com/437773404:06
Uzianyone ?04:07
daftykinsthufir_: pastebin the output of 'sudo fdisk -l'04:07
MishaX2klloveall what if you run "tracepath"?04:09
blnkKI4RO, I've got an easier route for you, open up "Synaptic Package Manager"04:09
thufir_fdisk -l and other output to mount secondary hard drive (hdb?)  https://gist.github.com/4377734   I'm not sure whether it's the master or slave hard drive.04:10
thufir_Uzi: for what it's worth, my Samsung didn't need a that, Ubuntu figured it out when I connected it.  have you tried that first?04:11
KI4ROblnk, Okay will do04:11
klloveallwell, it traces it to the old name of that computer (I had one install of ubuntu on it, and recently partitioned it and installed a second. It's showing the old hostname04:12
thufir_daftykins: fdisk -l and other output to mount secondary hard drive (hdb?)  https://gist.github.com/4377734   I'm not sure whether it's the master or slave hard drive.04:12
daftykinsthufir_: hrmm, says it was an LVM install. you just want to know the commands to mount the partitions is it?04:12
Uzitried to what? connect the printer to the pc?  i can't no cable04:12
blnkKI4RO, You will need an admin password to get into it. then under "quick filter", type in "libavcodec-extra" without the quotations04:12
klloveallmishax2, oh that's strange.... if I connect to ssh [old hostname] then it connects to the remote machine... strange...04:13
thufir_daftykins: hmm. you sure it's LVM?  maybe that's the other disc.  I just want to browse the files (will use DAR to backup)04:13
klloveallany ideas on what I need to do to, I guess, refresh the hostname resolution?04:14
thufir_Uzi: well, I would do that first before mucking with wifi, but that's just my two cents.04:14
MishaX2yeah probably...04:14
Uziwell it's not a wifi issue04:14
thufir_klloveall: /etc/hosts and /etc/hostname I think.04:14
UziI'm having issues connecting to a remote printer.    The way ubuntu machine is setup:   I have a cat5 cable running into my other pc which is wirelessly connected to my router.   The printer is routed to that pc.  This linux pc doesn't have a wifi card nor do I have the funds right now to get one.       On the windows machine I set LPR on and have been trying to install the driver for my printer which is a "Brother MFC-J815W"04:14
Uzifirst post04:14
Uziif you read that you can see how i connected it lol04:14
daftykinsthufir_: mkdir /media/hdd1 && mount /dev/sdb5 /media/hdd1 (that might error)04:14
thufir_daftykins: thx04:15
MishaX2try: sudo /etc/init.d/nscd restart04:15
MishaX2and sudo /etc/init.d/dns-clean start04:15
pictronHey guys, my dpkg somehow was completely borked by the 12.10 upgrade04:15
KI4ROblnk, Not getting synaptic running but can get into software updater04:15
MishaX2@klloveall lemme know if it works :)04:16
pictronany time I want to use dpkg it says:04:16
KI4ROblnk Out of steam here...going to take a break...many thanks for trying to help...Merry Christmas04:16
pictron"E: dpkg was interrupted, you must manually run 'sudo dpkg --configure -a' to correct the problem."04:16
daftykinspictron: so what happens when you run that?04:17
blnkKI4RO, I'm pretty sure all you need is the libavcodec. A quick google search should give you instructions04:17
pictronWhen I run that command, dpkg gets stuck at configuring the initial RAM fs04:17
klloveallmishax2, the first one didn't exist, and the second one didn't do anything04:17
thufir_mount: unknown filesystem type 'LVM2_member' https://gist.github.com/4377734  gives error:04:18
thufir_Uzi: is the printer connected to the pc with windows? via usb?  then windows box and linux box are on the same network with cat5?04:19
MishaX2klloveall have you restarted  the networking service after you changed the hostnames?04:19
thufir_Uzi: does the windows box print fine?  1.) first, maybe just use the windows pc to print for right now, plus test that.  2.) if windows won't print, then fix that first.04:20
daftykinsthufir_: google a guide on how to mount LVM04:20
thufir_daftykins: ok.  thank, I didn't realize it was lvm.04:20
pictrongets stuck right there04:20
Uzino the windows PC is connected via wifi  and is also connected to the lan via wifi.  The linux pc is  has a cat 5 patch cable running to the WINDOWS pc to share the inet04:20
blnkKI4RO, if you can't get synaptics open, you could open the terminal with Ctrl+Alt+T and enter "sudo apt-get install libavcodec-extra-53" without the quotations04:21
Uziwindows pc has worked fine i just installed ubuntu about 24 hours ago and have been setting up everything non stop04:21
WeThePeoplehow do i set a wallpaper img.?04:23
pictronany guesses?04:23
WeThePeoplewhat are some alternatives to setting a wallpaper04:24
WeThePeoplethe method i am using is not working04:24
klloveallmishax2, well I just restarted it, which crashed my computer, so I accidentally restarted the entire machine, and it still isn't working04:25
thufir_Uzi: for what it's worth, I would say there's a 99% chance that connecting the printer to the linux box will install the requisite drivers, which may (?) help with LVM printing.  for what it's worth:  https://wiki.ubuntu.com/BrotherDriverPackaging04:26
Uzii would if i could04:27
Uzithanks for your help anyways04:27
thufir_is fdisk -lu destructive?04:29
KI4ROblnk says I already have it04:29
thufir_Uzi: did you try to install your drive with a package manager?04:30
gotoguyno, I don't think so, why you need it?04:30
Uzii didn't notice that they made a .deb file so i used a program to convert the rpm to a deb04:31
Uziit messed up and being i haven't used linix in oh... 4 years i forgot how to freaking fix it04:31
Uziyes alien04:31
MishaX2klloveall I don't know04:31
MishaX2klloveall sorry...04:32
thufir_Uzi: ouch.  err, that sounds like a bad idea. is your driver listed in https://wiki.ubuntu.com/BrotherDriverPackaging ?04:32
klloveallhaha, it's cool. me neither04:32
gotoguyI used to install manually, but for this ubuntu I used a live disc.04:32
Uzithat's my driver04:32
Uzifor linux04:32
pictronWhen I run that dpkg --configure -a, dpkg gets stuck at configuring the initial RAM fs04:32
thufir_I'm following http://www.vxbus.com/software/linux/150-how-to-mount-lvm-partions-in-ubuntu.html but when I run vgscan it only picks up hte hard drive I'm using, not the hard drive I wish to mount.  https://gist.github.com/437773404:33
thufir_Uzi: I would suggest removing whatever .deb you installed first.  once it's gone, just use install the driver on that webpage.  sounds simple so far as that goes.  Dunno about LPI, though.04:35
Uziyeah i'll figure it out eventually04:35
Uzii have an idea for your other hd trying to recall the tool arg04:35
Uzibrb bathroom04:36
thufir_Uzi: right, thx.04:37
thufir_daftykins: it's volume group 'dur'  https://gist.github.com/437773404:40
daftykinsthufir_: sorry i have no experience with LVM04:43
thufir_daftykins: np. thanks.  you're positive it's LVM?   it's not maybe that the drive I'm using is LVM?04:44
Flannelthufir_: That link is dead.04:44
daftykinsthufir_: can't say, just went by what fdisk said04:45
thufir_Flannel: it's stupid github/gist problem.  yeah, I'll repost, pardon about that.04:45
pictronNobody knows how to fix this dpkg issue?04:46
UziSynaptic Package Manager isn't loading.  It was working fine when I installed it tonight.  Now all I can get it to do is ask for sudo password04:48
Flannelthufir_: Also, vgscan will only pick up volume groups, are you sure the second hard drive you have has LVM stuff set up already?04:48
tozenUzi: sudo apt-get install -- reinstall synaptic ?04:48
thufir_Flannel: I'm not 100% sure it's LVM.  sigh, patience on pastie pls.04:48
pictronUzi, Try running it from the command line and see what happens when it crashes04:48
Flannelthufir_: No worries.  You can use paste.ubuntu.com (or a plethora of others) if you're having pastebin issues.04:49
tozenpictron: seems it doesnt starts04:49
Uziworking from command04:50
roasted_It seems as if Unity is not showing me any sort of GUI. I log in, see my background, and that's it. No dash, top bar, etc. Is there a command I can run to reinitate everything?04:50
pictronSo then there's something wrong with your launcher then04:50
thufir_I'm trying to mount either the first or second hard drive.  I think it's hdb in this context:  http://pastebin.com/z00jwL7r   Is it LVM?04:51
pictronroasted_, try unity --replace04:51
roasted_pictron: is that in terminal or an alt-f2 thing?04:51
Uziyeah i guess i need to try and fix it arg04:51
thufir_Flannel: LOL, five minutes later, logged into pastebin.com http://pastebin.com/z00jwL7r04:51
pictrontry in a terminal first04:51
Uzireally i don't know why i haven't been using term..  i came from freebsd to this04:52
roasted_pictron: screen flashed... now it's hanging @ Setting Update "run_command_terminal_key"04:52
pictronthen press ctrl+c04:52
pictronand issue "compiz --replace"04:52
tozenroasted_: try gconftool-2 --recursive-unset /apps/compiz-1 or gconftool-2 --recursive-unset /apps/compizconfig-1 or unity --reset or  rm -rf ~/.config/compiz-1/compizconfig/* or sudo apt-get install dconf-tools && dconf reset -f /org/compiz/04:53
Flannelthufir_: I don't think your logical volumes are mounted anywhere.04:54
thufir_Flannel: yes, I want to mount the ~30gb hard drive. it's lvm?  I think it's hdb.04:54
Flannelthufir_: I'm not sure what your original question was, or what you're hoping to do with them.04:54
rkhshmi'm trying to debug a kernel module issue with respect to a SCSI device .. when i try to load the module and check dmesg all seems to be OK, but when i check fdisk -l i see that the SCSI device is begin detected but see an error  "Disk /dev/sdb doesn't contain a valid partition table"04:54
Flannelthufir_: You mean /dev/sdb5?04:54
thufir_Flannel: just mount the hard drive and brows files.  is /dev/sdb5 ~30GB?  I couldn't get human output for that.04:55
rkhshmFurthermore after some research i find that this issue is because of "BAD MAGIC NUMBER"04:55
rkhshmany ideas on how i can start fixing this issue?04:55
Uziwon't gparted tell you what your drive is ?04:56
thufir_Uzi: doh, I forgot :)  thx04:56
Uzinp :P04:56
Flannelthufir_: Please pastebin the output of `fdisk -l`, LVM doesn't have any notion of "hard drive" size.  I'm not sure what you're asking.  It looks like you have a logical volume that's ~26.4GiB, and one that's ~2GiB04:56
roasted_tozen: nothing.04:56
roasted_how on earth did this happen...04:57
* Uzi loves gparted04:57
roasted_any other ideas on how I can fix unity?04:57

roasted_pictron: not a viable solution bro04:58
roasted_(fwiw, I'm actually extremely partial to Unity now that I've used it for a while and gotten used to it)04:58
tozenroasted_: logout-login after?04:58
roasted_tozen: in between each command? No.04:58
roasted_should I have?04:58
tozenyes of course!04:59
tozenlogout now04:59
roasted_well it wasn't specified, so, I had no idea.04:59
thufir_Flannel: I want to mount that ~26.4GiB LVM     http://pastebin.com/3hPVkm2D04:59
roasted_well I already rebooted, but I ran all 4 of them.04:59
roasted_after the reboot from running all 4, no dice04:59
tozennow ideathen04:59
roasted_I think part of the problem was a command I issued in terminal.05:00
roasted_I was trying to mount an external hard drive, but I did a typo. I ended up mounting my root drive to /media/external.05:00
Flannelthufir_: Ah, ok.  Then that initial instructions you posted was actually correct, albeit less helpful than it could be.  I assume you're interested in mounting it to recover data from, and not to use permanently, correct?05:00
tozenroasted_: what the command?05:00
roasted_I ended up rebooting then, at which point I got to a terminal login screen. I powered it off, let it sit for a few seconds, powered it on. It did a disk check and everything booted up fine.05:00
thufir_Flannel: yes.  I'm somewhat familiar with DAR (disk archiver) and will back up the data.  one time operation.05:00
roasted_tozen: just (as root) mount /dev/sdd2 /media/external. (sdd2 being where the root OS is)05:00
roasted_tozen: but even when rebooted now, I run "mount" in terminal and sdd2 is on /... everything looks great. But now Unity is being picky.05:01
Uziwow i installed Samba on this linux pc and it detected my printer!05:01
pictronSo anyone got any clue how to fix dpkg hanging at05:01
Flannelthufir_: Alright, How far did you get on that original post ( http://www.vxbus.com/software/linux/150-how-to-mount-lvm-partions-in-ubuntu.html ) did you get?  (There are more informative ones out there, but we'll stick with that one because it's not nice to pull the rug out from under your feet)05:02
Uzitrying to print a test page now..  hope it works i've been at this for 3 hours!05:02
Six92If this is the wrong room please direct me to a room that i can get some advice for installing on a MacBook Pro Retina05:03
roasted_can anybody explain why accidentally remounting my root drive to another location would make Unity explode?05:03
thufir_Flannel: whhoops.  pls reask your question.05:03
Flannelthufir_: Alright, How far did you get on that original post ( http://www.vxbus.com/software/linux/150-how-to-mount-lvm-partions-in-ubuntu.html ) did you get?  (There are more informative ones out there, but we'll stick with that one because it's not nice to pull the rug out from under your feet)05:03
thufir_I'm confused about step 5. . Activate the volume.  my group is 'dur'?05:04
thufir_I skipped the modprobe but will do that one to be sure.05:05
Uzishit not owrking but new idea lol05:05
Flannelthufir_: Yeah, "dur" is your volume group.05:05
thufir_modprobe just returns after 'modprobe dm-mod' so I guess it's there.  so :     sudo vgchange -ay dur is the command?05:06
Flannelthufir_: although, since those next commands worked, it makes me think that that was already done successfully, and you can just make a mountpoint, and mount /dev/dur/root to it.05:06
Uzitry the mount point !!05:07
thufir_Uzi: lol, thx. one sec.05:07

roasted_am I looking at a windows-style reinstall here?05:13
usr13thufir_: Is it dev/sda2 that you want?  (What exactly are you trying to do?)05:14
Flannelusr13: No, he's just confused.05:14
roasted_let's reinstall unity!05:14
thufir_http://pastebin.com/3hPVkm2D  it probably is sda205:14

sandeepJordan_U: the other problem is, it can be compiled using gcj -o foo.exe foo.java but the resulting exe is not able to run in Windows07:39
Jordan_Usandeep: I would expect that gcj is not outputing a Windows executable, but rather a standard java bytecode class file, which needs to be passed to a java interpreter to actually be executed.07:41
sandeepJordan_U: it outputs an executable file which runs well in wine but when i try to run in Windows it tells me that it is not supported07:42
MugRipthejacker: click on the network icon in the top panel->choose edit connections->edit the wired connection. Under IPv4 settings you can manually set your default ip07:43
MugCrap, he quit already07:44
Jordan_Usandeep: Are you sure that wine isn't simply being smart enough to look at the file's magic and pass it to a java interpreter (even if it is probably a Windows version of the java interpreter as installed in wine)?07:44
Jordan_Usandeep: javac certainly generates java bytecode with no windows executable portion by default, I expect that gcj does the same.07:45
sandeepno gcj does not generate any bytecode rather it compiles to an exe extension which is a standard exe07:46
Jordan_Usandeep: Making a .jar file rather than a .class file still won't add any Windows executable code, but it might get Windows to hand the file off to the JVM automatically when double clicked.07:46

mvt007geekis it good to use lvm or not?08:22
superkuhIs it just me, or is the netcat in the ubuntu repositories missing some things?08:22
Ririshianyone can help me?08:22
Jordan_Urp__: Any kernel will support core2. If you want 64 bit then use a 64 bit kernel. (and of course it's recommended to use an official Ubuntu kernel)08:23
Glitchdtozen, can i pm you?08:23
rp__Ririshi: no ;)08:23
rp__Jordan_U: thank you08:23
Ririshioh wow.. i've waited here for 20 mins for nothing ):08:23
tozenGlitchd: no, please your request isnt my specification08:24
Glitchdtozen, sry i just pmd u08:24
etfbGlitchd: Your question is worrying.  Why do you want to make your /var directory visible to a Windows machine?08:24
Jordan_Umvt007geek: If you use LVM then you need to perform extra steps and install LVM tools if you want to mount your filesystem from a LiveCD. That's about the only reason I can think of not to use LVM.08:24
rp__just got 100% kernel use - openshot + firefox using08:24
Jordan_Urp__: You're welcome.08:24
tozenRirishi: wats happened?08:25
Glitchdetfb, because like i said i run a server from the linux box, and there are other folders beside the www inside the /var folder that i need to access and i dont want to only be able to access them with putty or some other ssh client.08:25
etfbGlitchd: Ah, I see. Well, in theory sharing any folder would be the same.  There's no "thou shalt not make this folder visible" built in to Linux.08:26
Jordan_URirishi: Is your boot firmware configured to give error messages in Dutch?08:26
etfbGlitchd: So what sort of program would you use to access /var/www, for example?08:26
Glitchdetfb, rightright, but it seems that i cant figure out how to share this folder even tho i was able to share and mount the other ones in windows08:26
Ririshitozen: this: I've made a bootable USB Stick for lubuntu 12.10, but every time I boot from it, it tells me: "Verwijder schijven of media" which is, in english: "Remove disks or media". I've tried making a bootable USB with Unetbootin, LiLi and Universal USB Installer and they all give me the same error. Anyone could help me with this?08:26
Glitchdetfb, well right now i can only access it with putty08:27
RirishiJordan_U: idk xD it just gave me them in Dutch..08:27
alusionetfb: yes in a way but I am using kde so I have a shortcut to change opacity and it changes everything08:27
etfbGlitchd: Sounds odd.  What would you *like* to use?08:27
RirishiJordan_U: my windows7 here is in dutch..08:27
Glitchdetfb, but i have the other folders mounted in "my computer" and can access them from there08:27
RirishiJordan_U: I'm on my moms small old laptop08:27
alusionetfb: It'd be convenient to change opacity of a window and it just changes the background08:27
etfbGlitchd: Oh! I bet your /var is on a different volume, is it?  That is, /var has been installed to one physical disk and the others (/etc, /home and so on) on another.  Is that right?08:28
Glitchdetfb, i would just like to know how to share it and i can mount it where i like, weather it be in network or if i put the network share in "my computer"08:28
tozenRirishi: did u setup boot from usb in BIOS?08:28
Glitchdetfb, not at all.08:28
Jordan_Ualusion: That would be increasing the transparency, not increasing the opacity. You can only do it with apps that specifically support having a transparent background, like GNOME Terminal.08:28
Ririshitozen: as in my usb is my first boot option?08:28
Glitchdetfb, they are all on the same computer, same partition, same everything08:28

Glitchdetfb, well shit the first command worked08:31
etfbReally? I am confused then...08:31
Glitchdetfb, but now i have to figure out how to access it over the network, or share it to the network so i can mount it in windows08:32
etfbThe second command is the one you want.  First could only have worked by accident.08:32
etfbType ls ~/var and you should see a listing of /var, because one is now a portal into the other, just like in that game...08:33
kebervasak kardinal kaitseb 2 emakast välja tulnud 4 ükskotti ja paavst kaitseb 2 emakast välja tulnud 4 jumalat08:34
Glitchdetfb, yes now the link is also in the /var folder as well as in my home folder08:34
etfbGlitchd: that's the result of the first command, which succeeded by coincidence.  You can delete that link with rm08:35
* etfb wonders what the command is in this channel to tell someone that we don't speak Viking...08:35
Glitchdetfb, ok so it removed now.08:36
* cfhowlett viking? not Klingon?08:36
Glitchdetfb, now what do i do?08:36
etfbFrom the Windows machine, try using Explorer or whatever you use to go to /home/glitchd/var, and see if you now have indirect access to /var.08:37
Glitchdetfb, well how would i if i just removed the folder it put in there?08:37
etfbGlitchd:  The second ln command creates the symlink in your home directory, pointing to /var.  The first ln command, which was an error, created a symlink in your var directory, pointing gods only know where.08:39

GlitchdonlyHuman, well one thing i noticed was that it needed a plugin, since i have vlc configured to run things like that it asked me if it was ok before playing the music08:44
onlyHumanits a movie & did it state what plugin it wanted?08:45
GlitchdonlyHuman, nope it just asked if it was ok for vlc to play the content08:45
DrManhattanonlyHuman, played with flash here08:46
onlyHumanits so weird...   i have another product page that has a diff video of the same type that plays fine. its just that 1 file08:49
etfbGlitchd: Cool. It doesn't solve the problem of why your system is refusing to allow access to /var, but it does give you what you need to keep working, so it's a partial win.08:50
onlyHumanboth are .webm using flv/ogg encoded with OpenShot08:51
Jordan_UonlyHuman: flv video can't go in a webm container.08:54
onlyHumansome one tell the OpenShot devs cuz i sure didnt know that08:55
cfhowlettonlyHuman: nor did I ...08:55
Jordan_UonlyHuman: The video you linked to is webm, and therefor used the VP8 video codec.08:55
onlyHumani encoded it with openshot and specified flv video codec @ 384kbps & libogg i think @ 128kbps08:56
Jordan_UonlyHuman: Why aren't you using the html5 video tag? I expect any browser that will support webm will support the html5 video tag, and you will avoid the problems with for example Google Chrome trying to use a plugin rather than just using its native webm support.08:57
onlyHumanyeah now ppl tell me. i've been asking around on google n bing n irc for 3 days n got the run around08:57

DrCodeso I guess it will work under ubuntu10:15
RootbrianSnurre86: try sudo top -d 1 to let it update once per second, this way, it gives you super user privileges to kill zombie processes or stuck processes, such if something freezes and won't go away, you'll need to kill xorg to fix that.10:15
AleksPGThis was after I tried mounting it as read only by modifying etc/fstab10:15

AleksPGhmm, i get NTFS signature is missing. Failed to mount '/dev/sda1': Invalid argument The device '/dev/sda1' doesn't seem to have a valid NTFS. Maybe the wrong device is used? Or the whole disk instead of a partition (e.g. /dev/sda, not /dev/sda1)? Or the other way around?10:23

srhbjennie: What did you do to upgrade?10:41
jennieI ran command in CMD , let me check the command10:42
neon__I am running debian squeeze. I am wondering if I should move to ubuntu10:42
srhbneon__: Why?10:42
jennie[2012-12-23 13:03:27] <Noskcaj> or type "sudo apt-get dist-upgrade"10:43
srhbjennie: That's wrong.10:43
srhbjennie: You need to use the do-release-upgrade command.10:43
neon__srhb, becuase a lot of stuff don't work well10:43
jenniewhat is command for that ?10:43

jennieNo new release found10:44
srhbjennie: Might have been messed up by the dist upgrade, I guess.10:44
jenniethen what should I do now srhb  please tell10:44
neon__srhb, like audacity take lots of CPU%, skype is a very old beta version, mythtv don't work because it is hard to setup I think but maybe it is the debian,10:44
srhbjennie: I don't know, sorry.10:45
srhbneon__: Right, Ubuntu is more consumerish, so you probably would enjoy that more.10:45
neon__srhb, gnash is taking lots of CPU%10:45
neon__srhb, is it possible to try ubuntu on the same partition, without destroying the debian, just in case I don't like ubuntu, and want to return?10:46
MonkeyDustneon__  start with a live cd or usb10:47
neon__MonkeyDust, where is the live usb?10:47
MonkeyDustneon__  ubuntu.com/download10:47
srhbneon__: Not on the same partition, no. Ubuntu is based off Debian and even if it weren't, they would still conflict. The LiveCD/USB is a good suggestion to try it out.10:47
Rootbrianneon_: Download it from ubuntu.com/getubuntu10:47
mvt007geekneon__: if you have enough space use a shared /home for both and use the other space for /boot and the other things10:48
mvt007geekeven a 1G space is enough10:48
mvt007geekfor the rest mines /home10:49
neon__which version of 64bit ubuntu do u recommend?10:49
ykimaUse a shared /home ?10:49
ykimaWhat an absolutely terrible idea.10:49
mvt007geeknio. it's a good idea10:50
ykimaNo it is not lol.10:50
ykimaDebian and Ubuntu use completely different versions of software.10:50
mvt007geekat this time i have a debian near my ubuntu10:50
ykimaYou don't mix distro config files out of laziness.10:50
Rootbrianneon_: If your system is x86, go with that.10:50
neon__but should I get lts or 12.10?10:50
Rootbrianneon_: 12.04 LTS.10:51
ykimaJust get 12.10.10:51
ykimaNo reason to go LTS unless upgrading is actually minorly difficult for you.10:51
yeatsneon__: obviously it's up to you - the versions are essentially very similar to each other10:51
Rootbrianykima: I prefer upgrading clean every three years.10:52

etfbI couldn't install mysql-server.  DPKG was getting dependency errors, passwords were being asked for and not accepted, it was very cryptic.11:33
etfbTurns out the problem was my /tmp directory, which I had set up as a symlink to /var/temporary (for reasons too silly to go into).11:33

* etfb checks and finds no libgtranscode either.11:40
antonio_etfb: nope11:40
etfbgnusar: I had that trouble.  I used aptitude to unmark the packages for installation.11:41
dr_willisjuniour:  try this yet? --> juniour:  i would try either rerunning 'sudo apt-get update' and rename that file, then rerun the 'sudo apt-get update'   It could be the file has became currupted11:41

dr_willisjuniour:  i mean rename the file. then rerun the apt-get stuff. ;)11:41
gnusarsrhb: well.. I used build-dep pulseaudio ;)11:41

antonio_etfb: any idea how I can install this?11:42
srhbgnusar: Might still work though, mightn't it11:42
srhbgnusar: Simply pipe the list of packages somewhere else, then remove11:42
gnusarsrhb: might be worth a shot11:43
srhbgnusar: It would be easy to just fry all dependencies of whatever you build-dep'ed, but you might want to keep some of them. In which case you're going to have to do some manual filtering.11:44
srhbgnusar: I think the safer version is to do apt-get markauto on all the deps.11:44
juniourdr_willis they are to many11:44

uncledeathHi folks, I have a strange problem. I am upgrading my home server (Core2Duo E6600, 4GB DDR2, 2x 500GB SATA HDD). A few days ago I set it up with software raid and lvm and it worked fine until it started freezing on any IO related stuff. I have 0,1% CPU usage and loads greater than 10! If any disk operation occurs my system is inresponsive, it takes 5 minutes to log onto it.12:05
yeatskanha: what happened to your system since you last saw the files/directories?  any system crashes? updates/upgrades?12:05
dr_willisgalacticboy:  your flash is 4gb in size and you are using a 3gb persistant file?  The apt-cache dirctory is most likely taking a lot of space.12:05
uncledeathI am reinstalling my system for the 10-th time and still no success. Now it is stuck on "setting mdadm"12:06
MonkeyDustuncledeath  try #ubuntu-server12:06

IcePeeHello, I have a boot problem. But no-one could answer. So I'm trying again. Got a RAID1 root array in BTRFS with a LVM swap volume. The BTRFS array also has boot. The porblem is, I can boot off one member in degraded mode (if I take out the root mirror), But I can't do likewise off the Rootmirror disk. I get the grub menu but whenever I attempt a boot, the computer freezes. I'm usung Ubuntu 12.10. The Grub command is: linux /@/vmlinuz roo12:07
IcePeet=UUID=<long string> ro rootflags=degraded,subvol=@ quiet splash $vt_handoff. The mirror works, but it seems that the server freezes whenever it trys to mount rw. It's odd, as the livecd froze when I attempted to mount degraded ro12:07
galacticboyok my doubt is how come a backtrack linux fits in  3 GB  with lot of apps and why not my same flash drive can't hold that much if i install in the same flash drive?12:07
MonkeyDustgalacticboy  backtrack is not supported here12:08
dr_willisgalacticboy:  your cache directory can get huge...12:08
galacticboyi know i am just giving example12:08
dr_willislook and see..12:08
kanhayeats: nothing i was just using pytest for a simple test.but it shows that files doesn't exit and when i checked then some files where missing.but when i open my laptop all those files where there and they are important files12:08
galacticboyi want a usb key with all the apps i want in it custom installation through apt-get install12:09
yeatskanha: well files don't delete themselves... do you have backups?12:09
IcePeeit's almost like the kernel crashes.12:09
dr_willisgalacticboy:  every time you install somthing the .deb packages it downloaded are cached to that drive as well... check your cache and see ifits whats taking up space.12:09
IcePeeas it doen't even accept ctrl-alt-del12:09
galacticboyok clearing cache will fix the issue?12:10
dr_willisgalacticboy:  no idea.. TRY it and see..12:10
kanhayeats: No i just had recently installed ubuntu 12.10 and moved everything from my backup to this12:10
dr_willisthe cache can get quiet large12:10
yeatskanha: okay - step one is to set up some sort of regular backup of your important files - I would back up now in case this indicates some sort of system problem12:11
MonkeyDustgalacticboy  is this what you want? http://paste.ubuntu.com/1467012/12:11
galacticboyok my doubt is how come a backtrack linux fits in  3 GB  with lot of apps and why not my same flash drive can't hold that much if i install in the same flash drive?12:11
dr_willisgalacticboy:  could be they are doing somthing differnt..12:11
dr_willisgalacticboy:  we dont know what they do.. go ask in their channel12:11
yeatskanha: then you might try booting up your system with a live CD/USB and running filesystem checks, etc.12:11
dr_willisagain.. im guessing its how the cache is handled.12:12
galacticboyi want to do it for ubuntu that's why i am asking12:12
dr_willisid dump the 4 gb flash and get a bigger one and do a full normal install...12:12
galacticboywhy need of different distro for me when i can do everything in ubuntu?12:12
kanhayeats: then what next?12:13
dr_willis4gb is barely enough to do any real work12:13
yeatsgalacticboy: you're the one who keeps mentioning backtrack, right?12:13
galacticboynot exactly back track it's just a example12:13
MonkeyDustgalacticboy  type /join #backtrack-linux12:13
nluxoh those pentesters...12:14
galacticboythere if i go and ask i want to do in ubuntu they will direct here! I am in the middle of OS12:14
dr_willisask them what they do differntly galacticboy ....12:14
nluxthen go to ##linux12:14
yeatskanha: I don't know how you removed the files, and since you don't either, they may be just gone (unless you have the resources to do/pay someone to do forensic recovery)12:15
galacticboyYou guys are very bad in customization12:15
kanhayeats: oh12:15
galacticboyAnyone can use Ubuntu as it is. I need to change how i need that's what linux means.12:15
dr_willisIf you want the most customizeable usb flash drive. do a full install to a bigger flash drive. The live-persistant setup is not ment for long term ussage12:15
dr_willisIf its the cache taking up space then set up a script to clean it out at boot.12:16
MonkeyDustgalacticboy  if you find out how to do what you want, then you are the expert12:16
galacticboyok thanks for the info.12:16
galacticboyI'll share it for the Open Source! :)12:17

Boreeas_I have a file called xulrunner-bin in /opt/xulrunner. ls shows me the file, as does dir, and I can tabcomplete it. But when I try to execute it, I get "bash: /opt/xulrunner/xulrunner-bin: No such file or directory"12:32

srhbRirishi: From which system are you using unetbootin?12:33
dr_willisRirishi: You could try a imageing tool i guess. but it sounds more like the pc is just not trying to boot from that flash at all.12:33
Ririshisrhb: I made it on Windows 7, using it for Lubuntu12:33
Boreeas_MonkeyDust: But the file not being found is ubuntu-related12:33
RangerBobSorry Ririshi, was talking to someone else12:33
Ririshidr_willis: what is that, an imageing tool? Sorry I'm dumb :p12:33
RirishiRangerBob: oh, sorry, my fault.12:34
RangerBobnah I should have been more specific12:34
RirishiRangerBob: I didn't read the message above mine ;p12:34
epzil0nRirishi: long shot maybe, but try usb 2.0 if you used a usb 3 port ;) i couldn't boot from my external optical drive due to that.. odd but that's what happen12:34
Ririshiepzil0n: this is a 4 yr old laptop xD12:35
Ririshiepzil0n: maybe.. idk for sure xD but it's old lolz12:35
epzil0nRirishi: never mind then, but some usb sticks just wont work, i know my really old ones doesn't12:36
Ririshiepzil0n: Ehm.. I'm using Kingston DataTraveler 2.0 4 GB..12:36
Ririshiepzil0n: I'm not sure how old it is..12:36
epzil0nRirishi: how did you format it before using unetbootin in windows?12:37
Ririshiepzil0n: FAT32 i think12:37
RirishiI used Rufus the last time btw12:38
epzil0nRirishi: ok, that's what i always do first on windows so then that aint the issue12:38
epzil0nRirishi: there's this win32 imagewriter too maybe worth trying?12:40
Ririshiepzil0n: which one?12:40
epzil0nRirishi: i can't use unetbootin for debian had to use that instead https://launchpad.net/win32-image-writer12:40

riderplusit still doesn't pop up on my desktop12:44
Ririshiepzil0n: to choose the USB to boot off? That's F9 here, it says in the startup splash screen.12:44
epzil0nRirishi: you can also try to update bios and that way get new features.. check the manufacturer support pages ;)12:44
epzil0nRirishi: yeah, on my desktop it's f8 and then i have to choose boot from usb zip i think it says, odd but that's the way it is there12:45
riderplusshould I format it in other format?12:45
antonio_this is what happens when I type openshot in terminal12:45
Ririshiepzil0n: I have no acces to CDs or smth.. So I tried to flash the bios.. with an USB >.< and just like my bootables.. it just doesn't boot ): So.. Search for HP Mini 2133 bios12:46

silv3r_m00nI need to convert mp3 to ogg, what would be the best program to use ?12:47
keonHi there I have Ubuntu 12.04 x64 and when I purge wine it still exists even after reboot. I'm trying to start over from scratch.12:47
dr_williskeon:  still exists where? using apt to remove wine will NOT remove any windows installed apps that are in the users .wine directory12:48
xgoosilv3r_m00n avidemux12:48
cfhowlettkeon: purging wine will not remove the program entry from the menu12:48
keondr_willis, as in after reboot I can still run "wine" and it's still there12:48
riderplusI can only mount it automatically12:49
dr_willisthe wine apps install to .wine normally and they have some icons in some other directory in the users home12:49
riderplusmanually sorry12:49
silv3r_m00nxgoo: when I try to open the mp3 file in avidemux it says could not open file12:49
riderplusit doesn't mount it automatically12:49
dr_williskeon:  try 'which wine' to see what the path is to wine12:49
riderplusI tried all stuff12:49
epzil0nRirishi: bummer12:50
keondr_willis Something went wrong with wine so I'm removing wine. I know how to remove a directory containing the files. I've done it multiple times already.12:50

epzil0nRirishi: well i got a hp too but i also got this external drive so i could update that way12:52
keondr_willis the reason why I state something has gone wrong with wine itself that everytime I erase the prefix and start a fresh new one the programs that use to work do not work anymore.12:52

epzil0nRirishi: if it's so that it can't boot from a usb flashdrive it's very dumb to say the least since it doesn't got a optical drive, hello how did they think there?13:08

SolarisBoyalbeit striped will provide no parity or redundancy just speed tobbegardner13:20
disharmonicRirishi, puppy is a lightweight linux distro. From epzil0n post i assume they moved from a debian base to a ubuntu base. So it's a customized lightweight ubuntu derivative13:20
trexyzhi guys13:21
Ririshiepzil0n: is there a possibility that a custom bios will get me to bootin from an USB?13:21
SolarisBoybut you have about n-1 space for your disks on raid5 tobbegardner to explain the size in the ending to you and why it's not 6TB - some is used for parity/redundancy13:21

max999KenetJervet, are you using a client like xchat?13:40
NoorideeNAEcigol: i wanna start from the 0 any hints?13:40
cfhowlettb33nj: I've never done it, but I know I saw some specialty oil at Fry's.  I'd have to say ask a computer builder in your area.13:40
KenetJervetyea using xchat13:41
rollitupno i had this dual booting since past 6 months13:41
rollitupand everything was working fine until today13:41
max999KenetJervet, go to xchat > server list and enter your data there13:41
mashbroKenetJervet: Once you register the nick, you can use it every time as you wish.13:41
b33njcfhowlett: okay, thanks for the help13:41
mashbroYou just need to identify13:41
rollitupi had first installed Win 7 and then Ubuntu thats what i remember following a help article13:41
max999*network list13:41
cfhowlettb33nj: good luck13:41
SolarisBoytrexyz: looking at https://security.appspot.com/vsftpd/vsftpd_conf.html i no longer see those writeable options - you should probably check that the user dirs under /var/www/vhosts/ are permissioned/owned properly13:41
trexyzoky, thx SolarisBoy13:41
b33njcfhowlett: what irc client are you using?13:41
cigolNorideeNAE: I can recommend you any simple framework. It is good method to learn php and mysql together.13:41
tobbegardnerSolarisBoy, did some googling and will not look into using parted instead of fdisk... fdisk seems to limit the size to 2.2TB for the disks13:41
NoorideeNAEguys any tips how to start coding php?13:41
KenetJervetmax999, mashbro , how does the server know it's me not anyone else?13:41
cfhowlettb33nj: xcat13:42

mroutmore like BLOATBUNTU13:42
NoorideeNAEcigol: i just installed ubuntu yesterday. but dont know what to do right now13:42
MonkeyDustNoorideeNAE  getting used to it13:42
max999KenetJervet, someone wrote you about registering =) if you register the server knows its you13:42
mashbroAnyone else can also use your nick if you don't register it. Once you register it, you'll need a password (which only you will know) to login.13:42
cigolNoorideeNAE: Zend Framework is very good but very hard, therefore maybe the best fw for you, kohana, codeigniter, cakephp ?13:42
max999KenetJervet, you need to provide a password then (but you can automate this step)13:42
mroutgnubuntu <-- does this exist? might be more respecting of your freedoms than ubuntu13:43
mashbroSo if the password validates, then the server knows it's you. :)13:43
KenetJervetmax999, so if i don't register, this nickname will be released right?13:43
testerrone last question is this auto generate by system or manually entered  ?13:43
testerrCRON[11247]: (root) CMD (   cd / && run-parts --report /etc/cron.hourly)13:43
NoorideeNAEcigol: how to install those fw?13:43
MonkeyDustmrout  wrong channel13:43
max999KenetJervet, yes, if you use /nick something now i could take KenetJervet13:43
cigolNoorideeNAE: do you know mysql ?13:43
NoorideeNAEcigol: not proffesional13:44
KenetJervetmax999, thanks. but i found nowhere to enter my password in xchat13:44
max999KenetJervet, you can do it manually and there are 2 ways to automate it13:44
NoorideeNAEcigol: less than good.13:44
mroutKenetJervet: do /msg ChanServ HELP REGISTER13:44
rollitupepzil0n: do u think this is resolvable >13:44
cigolNoorideeNAE: first install XAMPP package which have php, apache and mysql. I can recommend xampp http://www.apachefriends.org/en/xampp.html13:44
max999KenetJervet, if you go xchat network list and edit the server we are on you can provide your password there to automate it (you need to register first though). or you create a file to be executed at start (someone recommended this once to me as the other way seems to not work on evry server.. not sure)13:45
NoorideeNAEokay lunching Vbox13:45
cigolNoorideeNAE: xampp works very well on ubuntu.13:45
KenetJervetmax999, mrout : thanks a lot. :)13:46
SolarisBoytobbegardner: the software raid is constucted of partitons and not disks?13:46
mashbroKenetJervet: Automating the login process is much better :)13:46
testerrso no one knows the answer  ?13:46
joeywhats the question13:46
=== joey is now known as Guest93828
SolarisBoytesterr: about cron?13:47
SolarisBoytesterr: thats a system message it's normal it says the command cd / && run-parts --report /etc/cron.hourly was run if you run the ls command i told you will see whats in that folder /etc/cron.hourly13:47
nluxwhat did I miss?13:47
KenetJervetsorry XD13:47
NoorideeNAEgod! ubuntu is so slow when i use via VBox13:47
max999if i press alt+f2 and enter something, lets say terminal, it shows terminal in results but i cant click it or do anything to start it. what am i doing wrong?13:48
cigolNoorideeNAE: and when you instal xampp server, then look at cakephp. it probably the simplest framework on the web, which allows you create website very fast (http://cakephp.org/)13:48
testerrsoalrisboy , it's empty on hourly13:48
SolarisBoytesterr: exactly13:48
* NoorideeNAE Cigol is the real man! :P13:48
Guest93828what do emotions have to do with artificial intelligence13:48
b14d3!ot | Guest9382813:48
ubottuGuest93828: #ubuntu is the Ubuntu support channel, for all Ubuntu-related support questions. Please use #ubuntu-offtopic for other topics (though our !guidelines apply there too). Thanks!13:48
SolarisBoytesterr: meaning every hour the cron system runs those cron jobs in that folder - if it's emtpy then nothing is being done13:48
NoorideeNAEdownload it via terminal right?13:48
cigolNoorideeNAE: in my opinion, it's the best way to start :)13:49
testerrsolarisboy, that is the last info before my system crush13:49
SolarisBoymaybe look a little harder =)13:49
testerri was away and the system down for no appearant reason13:49
testerris there a log has more info and detail in ubuntu that i can see what causing the system down ?13:50
SolarisBoytesterr: sure13:50
max999testerr, /var/log/syslog or dmesg13:50
SolarisBoytesterr: you can try lastlog too sometimes it tells you the condition that it was shutdown on13:50
UltimaKRwhen i try to install lubuntu on my old dimension the cds never work right and i get error messages....i was wondering if usb would be better?13:51
SolarisBoytesterr: when looking in those logs - you should have an aim - try to single out a time frame and determine what it is you are looking for13:51
epzil0nrollitup: but did you have windows bootloader to manage your systems before? then you can repair it using windows installation cd and open up a command prompt and run /fixboot and /fixmbr if my memory serves me right13:51
b14d3!lubuntu | UltimaKR13:52
ubottuUltimaKR: lubuntu is Ubuntu with LXDE instead of !GNOME as desktop environment, which makes it extremely lightweight. See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Lubuntu - /join #lubuntu for lubuntu support.13:52
rollitupyes i did13:52
KenetJervethey guys, i'm back13:52
epzil0nrollitup: then install easybcd and add your ubuntu to windows bootloader ;)13:52
rollitupi am looking it i can make a Win 7 Installable USB since i had borrowed the CD rom for installing windows13:52
testerrsolarisboy , lastlog can't be open13:52
rollitupwhat is easybcd ?13:52
SolarisBoytesterr: right13:53
cfhowlettrollitup: yes, there's a windows tool for that.  Ask in ##windows or search for it.13:53
SolarisBoytesterr: use the command last to open that binary log13:53
solofightcan somebody please open synapatic and check whats the latest version of Git available ?13:53
epzil0nrollitup: http://neosmart.net/EasyBCD/13:53
solofightor where can i know that from ? any URL ?13:53
SolarisBoytesterr: hence type "last"13:53
UltimaKRsolarisboy: when i try to install lubuntu on my old dimension, the cds never seem to work (i always get bugs and the screen goes black after i click "install lubuntu")...is that a problem with the disks or the pc?13:54
KenetJervetrollitup, is it something that helps make startup menu in windows?13:54
SolarisBoytry to find the time that it went down there - and then go into the logs looking around that time13:54
KenetJervetlike grub?13:54
rollitupyeah prolly gonna check it13:54
mashbroUltimaKR: PC, I guess13:54
SolarisBoyUltimaKR: you can check the md5sum on a cd to ensure it's validity13:54
speirosHello people.13:54
solofightguys ! ?13:54
solofightcan somebody please open synapatic and check whats the latest version of Git available ?13:54
mashbrospeiros: Hi13:54
solofightor where can i know that from ? any URL ?13:55
epzil0nrollitup: yes you should be able to make that win7 usb.. but it should be enough just to boot it up from any win7 media cd/usb and enter recovery mode hit r i think it was13:55
b14d3!patience | solofight13:55
ubottusolofight: Don't feel ignored and repeat your question quickly; if nobody knows your answer, nobody will answer you. While you wait, try searching https://help.ubuntu.com or http://ubuntuforums.org or http://askubuntu.com/13:55
rollitupok and should i then run those command from dos ?13:55
speirosIs this where I come for assistance with my ubuntu upgrade?13:55
UltimaKRsolarisboy, mashbro: the cd was verified by md5sum; would loading by usb be more reliable?13:55
SolarisBoyUltimaKR: try it13:55
UltimaKRsolarisboy: my dimension does not have the capability to boot from usb though, so do any of you have experience with the PLoP boot manager?13:56
SolarisBoyUltimaKR: i would assume if the usb does the same you can start looking at your hardware - i also think that on the live cd's there are actually boot options you can toggle as well13:56
SolarisBoymaybe you need a boot flag set or to boot failsafe or soemthing13:56
cigolubottu: is a bot ?13:56

mashbrosolofight: Not sure about that, sorry.13:59
SolarisBoythats a good question i actually never checked what version ubuntu ships with13:59
SolarisBoysolofight: you can use apt-cache policy or show to query the repos for whats available btw - and compare it to whats on the git-scm site14:00
solofightmashbro: no problem - thanks for coming forward to help14:00
mashbrosolofight: No worries14:00
solofightSolarisBoy: if i have a ubuntu box with me right now - i wouldn't ask the question here :(14:00
tobbegardnerSolarisBoy: Yes, can it be of disks as in /dev/sda and not from partition on the disk /dev/sda1 ??14:00
SolarisBoyhaha sorry14:00
solofighti am stuck with this windows and thought il ask here14:01
SolarisBoytobbegardner: it can be both14:01
SolarisBoywell one or the other that is.. but i eblieve if partitions they should be the same size14:01
SolarisBoysolofight: this is whats in the ubuntu repo on LTS 12.04 1: 014:01
solofightSolarisBoy: thank you very much14:02
epzil0nrollitup: first boot your computer from say win7 cd and go through language, keyboard and time then hit repair this computer, then choose command prompt or what it says, then it should be enough with just /fixboot14:03
testerrthanks solarisboy14:03
SolarisBoytesterr: yw14:03
SierraARIs it possible to run a wine application, i.e. notepad++, as 'root' so that it has access to edit files that would need sudo/root access?14:04
epzil0nrollitup: there are other options too like using the bootrec.exe but i don't think you have to do that..14:04
epzil0nrollitup: usually when i done this i used /fixboot and also /fixmbr maybe it's not needed but that's what i done14:05
speirosAlso, when I upgraded, I had three boxes open in unknown font (they displayed as boxes), so I just closed them without pressing what appeared to be the ok buttons or cancel.  What would they have been, and would this have had anything to do with my not being able to upgrade new stuff?14:06
epzil0nrollitup: then i always install say ubuntu bootloader to the ubunut root partition and then boot windows open easybcd and just add a new entry with grub 2 as ubuntu nowadays uses that and then give it a name and just save it.. done ;)14:06
epzil0nrollitup: got a triple boot setup like that now and it always works, you can ofc have grub do that but if you for some reason remove ubuntu you are screwed and need to fix windows bootloader again, that's why i always only use windows bootloader14:08

angela_1speiros: I suspect then its a partial work done over there. What you could do is get an ISO image of ubuntu12.04 and install. That wont create any problem like this.14:29
SolarisBoyKenetJervet: so dump that as well dump *dbs* and backup the whole /var/lib/mysql or wherever it's root is and you should be good you can use either or to restore14:29
nlux_what's a good compiz alternative?14:29
SolarisBoyjust ensure it's a full dump14:29

speirosangela_1 Is there some way I can install the parsers, so that the perl can be removed and then reinstalled?14:30
epzil0nrollitup: well there you have it then.. fix it and then fix ubuntu inside windows with easybcd as i said before14:30
joey_you have to hit like f1 or f2 or delete or even f9 try those try f9 or esc when you press the power button keep hittin em fast14:30
joey_one will bring up a menu you can pick the usb drive to start from14:31
epzil0nrollitup: and shit happens when dealing with windows in dualboot :D14:31
rollitupyeah happened twice in the past week14:31
nluxSolarisBoy: could it be a driver-related issue?14:31
KenetJervetSolarisBoy, thanks a lot. that's after i can get centos work14:32
joey_i just dual booted windows 8 with ubuntu just pick install along side windows 8 when you get there14:32
rollitupand to make matters more worst i don't have a cd drive14:32

nluxthanks SolarisBoy14:32
SolarisBoyKenetJervet: yw np14:33
b14d3b33nj: After reading a bit about your problem, did your laptop come preinstalled with Win8?14:33
SolarisBoynlux: yw14:33
b33njb14d3: no14:33
angela_1speiros: for installing you can use: "sudo apt-get install <packagename>" and to remove : "sudo apt-get purge <packagename>" . check if it works.14:33
KenetJerveti typed /LIST in the server and wtf it took 3 mins to show all channels14:34
tapasso how do i enable the nvidia driver if not using gnome or kde?14:34
speirosangela_1 Okay, cool.  Thanks14:34
joey_go into windows 8 and in the settings pick advanced startup14:34
tapasfollowing this: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BinaryDriverHowto/Nvidia14:34
speirosI'll try it.14:34
b14d3b33nj: Then this doesn't entirely apply to you, but read through this (or follow joey_ 's info) http://askubuntu.com/questions/221835/installing-ubuntu-on-a-pre-installed-windows-8-system14:34
b14d3b33nj: It may give you some ideas and things to try. I admit I don't really know a lot about your problem14:35
tapasjockey-text -l tells me there's a driver kmod:nvidia_current14:35
b33njb14d3: okay14:35
tapasbut if i try to enable it with jockey-text -e kmod:nvidia_current it tells me that it failed..14:35
b33njb14d3: the problem is that nothing shows up14:35
kali_could anyone help me with poor video playback i am facing14:35
tapasand the jockey.log just tells me that the drivers are not existing.14:35
b14d3b33nj: That's a very vauge statement. Please clarify14:36
joey_hey does anyone know a way to have the xscreensavers app start when ubuntu starts14:36
tapasah dammit, i'll just go into gnome for a second14:36
b33njb14d3: laptop doesn't react to usb stick14:36
angela_1speiros: ya just see. :)14:37
kali_any website for video codecs.?14:37
nlux_it seems to work with no effects SolarisBoy, any ideas on this?14:37
KenetJervetkali_, i probably am not able to help, but am interested in your problem14:37
speirosangela_1 Yeah, I'll have to try again.  I'm still stuck eh.14:37
b33njb14d3: the primary boot device is set to removable drive14:37
b14d3b33nj: Getting closer. Does it not show anything when you are IN Windows, or when you're trying to boot from it?14:37
b33njb14d3: the usb stick is ok, i have just installed ubuntu on another computer14:38
speirosangela_1 Thanks though, as I appreciate it.14:38
b33njb14d3: yes, the machine sees it14:38
b14d3b33nj: At which point14:38
joey_b33 you have to go to advanced startup in windows 8 in the settings or somthing like that or else find the boot menu button or else you just have a bad usb stick copy14:38
nlux_http://i.imgur.com/AobgR.png welp14:39
b33njthe usb stick is ok14:39
joey_try the back usb ports14:39
joey_or are you on a laptop14:39
b33njit's a laptop14:40
b14d3He's on a laptop14:40
joey_whats your laptop model14:40
b33njjoey_: asus eee pc14:41
b33njjoey_: yeah14:41
joey_hold on ill look online real quick for boot menu button14:41
angela_1speiros: your welcome :)14:41
speirosangela_1 Come to think of it, does it matter that my installation is on a laptop?14:42
syncsyswhich opensource software is similer to adobe dreamweaver in feature set ?14:42
rollitupepzil0n: now that i ran the boot repair tool and choose Restore MBR in the advanced options i go straight in Win 7 without the option to boot into Ubuntu14:42
b33njb14d3: so what next14:42
syncsysI should say similer and competes it14:42
rollitupmaybe now i should run boot-repair again and do the default boot repair what say ?14:43
joey_ok well disable boot booster in the bios14:43
b14d3b33nj: If I help you while joey_ is looking something up, we may give conflicting information, or work against each other. I was waiting for his next step14:43
joey_hit f2 at startup to get into the bios14:43
speirossyncsys I used GIMP a few years ago, and could do most stuff (sufficient for my level of experience, which isn't high) that I could do with dreamweaver and fireworks, with even a little photoshop14:43
angela_1speiros: No . That should not matter.14:43
epzil0nrollitup: well that's why i always make a boot repair disk, but since i'm not at home i don't have it now, but that has saved me countless of times, either reinstalled grub to some linux partition or restored my mbr when it got corrupted due to that i installed some linux distro and the mbr gor overwritten14:43
speirosangela_1 Cool.  Thanks again.14:44
joey_ then after you disable that save the settings then hit esc key at startup for boot menu14:44
KenetJervetcentos 6.3 carries firefox 10.0.514:44
KenetJervetand what the fuck is Firefox ESR?14:44

b33njjoey_: i found quiet boot in bios14:45
speirossyncsys I'm not very experienced with it mate, and for two out of three websites that I used, I ended up using a Joomla! template, as they were so well organised.14:45
syncsysspeiros,  ^14:45
joey_hmm online it said boot booster14:45
syncsysspeiros,  ok. what do you think of bluefish + inkscape or maybe anjuta?14:45
speirossyncsys I haven't used any other packages, but GIMP was great for me.  I haven't tried bluefish or inkscape, nor anjuta.14:46
joey_try it just put it back if it dont work14:46
b33njjoey_: i have disabled quiet boot14:46
syncsysspeiros,  thanks14:46
joey_maybe fast boot14:46

sideeffectso i got a little problem. i installed kubuntu on a 5 year old netbook. but grub somehow doesnt work. i made that: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8lod8sRb_6I . but when I starting the netbook, it doesnt want to boot. it comes just:14:47
riderplusif I use pmount /dev/sdc1 it mounts the usb. how to make pmount act automatically when the usb is inserted?14:47
epzil0nrollitup: sry i missed what you said before.. i keep loosing my network connection, on 3g now :/ i would first restore mbr and boot windows and use easybcd14:47
sideeffecterror: no such partition14:47
speirossyncsys What joey says is good though, although I don't think he meant it for you.  If they don't conflict, you could download them all, and see which one works.  I did that before my upgrade with video editing software.14:47
b33njjoey_: okay, ubuntu there14:47
sideeffectgrub rescue>14:47
b33njjoey_: thanks for help14:47
joey_ok cool14:47
rollitupcan easybcd be used without a cd rom ?14:47
epzil0nrollitup: yes14:47
speirossyncsys Then the ones that are no good can be removed.14:48

Flannelvoxcroix: What makes you think it's missing 11GB?19:14
voxcroixFlannel: i have only single hdd 160gb. i have try both os (ubuntu and win 7). in ubuntu its show up 160gb before format install. but in win7 its only show up 149gb19:17
voxcroixcan i fix it?19:17
eternalBoth sizes are correct and are the same.19:18
voxcroixare you sure.. the win7 is correct19:18
eternalHD makers lie :-P19:18
eternalYes I'm sure19:18
voxcroixbut ubuntu can show me 160gb why the win7 cant19:19
Flannelvoxcroix: That's just the OSes reporting sizes differently.  One is based on base-2, and the other base-10.  See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gigabyte#Consumer_confusion19:19
eternalLinux is showing you the full capacity size the same math as the HD makers, windows  is using different math. The reason is out of the scope of here, Google gigabyte for the wiki articled19:20
Flannelvoxcroix: They're both the same size, it's just like saying something weighs 10 pounds, and it also weighs 4.5kg.19:20
voxcroixok.. i understand. it just like the RAM showing on linux system. is less the windows19:21
Flannelwell, RAM should be the same on both, but yes.19:21
voxcroixFlannel: do i need a /swap for my ubuntu 64bit and backtrack 64bit?19:23
voxcroixi have 8gb ram on my sustem19:23
dowdyph0voxcroix: how much ram do you have19:23
Flannelvoxcroix: You can use the same swap for both, provided you don't intend to hibernate one and then reboot to the other.19:23
Malimbarhmm... I can't read some content of an external HD backup of a mac19:24
voxcroixFlannel: 8gb /swap?19:24
dowdyph0voxcroix: if you use no swap set vm.swappiness=019:24
theadminMalimbar: HFS doesn't have great support in Linux... But, uh, "some" sounds suspicious. Some files? Parts of files?19:25
Flannelvoxcroix: That depends on your RAM and what you plan on doing with your system.19:25
dowdyph0voxcroix: use the same swap amount as ram, because sometimes ram dump to hard disk is needed19:25

Hilikusa couple of years ago i read an article that said that xubuntu wasn't really lighter than regular ubuntu. is that the case today? i'm using 12.04 and i have an ubuntu guest in virtualbox that i'm trying to lighten by changing the desktop manager19:31
dowdyph0solitude88: I'got a little script if you want19:32
FlannelHilikus: xubuntu still pulls in the gtk libraries, which I believe is what that article was referencing.  The really lighter-weight one currently would be Lubuntu (using LXDE)19:32
theadminHilikus: By "desktop manager" you mean "desktop environment" (getting terminology straight can often be important for the right answer). But currently, Xubuntu is a lot more lightweight than Ubuntu. But Lubuntu is better yet.19:32

theadmindetrimental: What about the username? Sure it's correct? If the usernames on the laptop and the server differ, you'll need to ssh with this syntax: ssh username@host. Simply using "ssh host" uses the current username, that is, the one you have on your laptop.19:33
dowdyph0solitude88: find -L <path> -type l -exec echo {} \;19:33
detrimentalthank makes perfect sense19:34

solitude88dowdyph0 could path be a url?19:34

mario_theadmin: you're awesome girl :)19:56
theadminmario_: You can read manuals for specific commands by using "man command", e.g. "man ln"19:56
GunArmb14d3: no I haven't although this would be out of the scope of their support, since its not a problem with their software, ventrilo isn't even being run, because ubuntu is pretending to not see the file, i'm guessing it has to do with user permissions....?19:57
b14d3GunArm: If it doesn't see it then something else has to be going wrong, if it gave you a permissions error then it would probably be permissions. Paste the link (or pastebin) to the shell script again.19:58
GunArmdo I have to do something special when I adduser in order for the user to be able to su ventrilo -c "/usr/bin/ventrilo_srv -f/etc/ventrilo/ventrilo_srv -d"19:58
GunArmthe file /usr/bin/ventrilo_srv is permissions 751 user1:user119:59

Are you really talking about an encrypted home directory or an encrypted root, because for an encrypted home directory (using ecryptfs) you shouldn't need to enter any password "at boot" and only your normal login to login to your user (you shouldn't be asked for a password separately from the normal login, but automatic login is not possible).20:24

maxblkj: Then, I believe 'ecryptfs-rewrap-passphrase ~/.ecryptfs/wrapped-passphrase' should do what you need20:43
Jordan_Ulkj: You definitely have an encrypted root filesystem, not an encrypted home directory. (Well, you may *also* have a separately encrypted home drirectory, but you certainly have an encrypted root FS).20:43
