judahitewarrior7I have Ubuntu 12.10 and I have problems switching to different Hebrew fonts in LibreOffice Writer. It will not switch from the default Hebrew font Lohit Hindi. Can anyone please help?00:00
demonio1thanks PatrickDickey ubottu i'll see they now :)00:00
sybaritenPatrickDickey: when using lubuntu, will i be using the same repositories as someone using ubuntu? (mind you, i'm no wizard of package management)00:01
dr_willissybariten:  yes00:01
sybaritenPatrickDickey: in other words: will i have the same big choice of software, or will there be restrictions00:01
dr_willisits just a differnt desktop on top of the core of the os00:01
PatrickDickeysybariten: yes, and in fact, you can install ubuntu-desktop afterwards.00:01
sybaritenaha ok00:02
PatrickDickeyjudahitewarrior7: You might find more help in #libreoffice or #ubuntu-il00:02
demonio1PatrickDickey ubottu just a faster question the filesystem /usr/bin is different that /etc?00:03
PatrickDickeydemonio1: You'll probably want to Google Linux Filesystem for more information.00:03
dr_willisdemonio1:  you partion a hard drive. then put a filesystem on the partion.  /usr and /etc are directories00:03
dr_willisdemonio1:  the wikipedia may be handy to read up on also00:03
dr_willispartion a hd -> format the partions to be whatever filesystem you need them to be.00:04
jazzkutyaubottu's entry for !filesystem is pretty much misleading here00:04
* PatrickDickey is off to work now. :S00:04
buntuBensybariten, I just downloaded 12.04 64-bit today from ubuntu.com, it comes out at 728MB00:04
dr_willisIts discussing the layout of the linux filesystem.00:04

dr_willisdemonio1:  no need to msg me./  i tend to ignore most messages00:07
dr_willisdemonio1:  and linux supports dozens of filesystem types.00:07
BillyZane|2hey dr_willis :)00:08
demonio1ok dr_willis but can u do an example of filesystem?00:08
demonio1pls00:08
BillyZane|2demonio1: hi00:09
demonio1hi BillyZane|2 :)00:09
BillyZane|2demonio1:  i might be wrong on this, but ext3 and ext4 are the main partitions you want to install ubuntu on. regarding what file systems are supported for mounting purposes, i can verify that NTFS is supportorted, and probably Fat3200:09
BillyZane|2you can't view ext3 and ext4 on windows, but you can view NTFS on linux00:10

anoosHI is there a method by which a regular user can see how long his own user account has existed on a system?00:12

ikoniaNimrod2012: yes, thre are various solutions to secure boot and linux in general, with various pros/cons00:15
JonEdneySo apparently (without noticing), I set the "System Reserved" portion of the Windows partition as boot.  I've never seen what is normaly set as bootable, is it the / partition?00:15
ikoniaJonEdney: it really shouldn't matter00:16
JonEdneyAlright, we'll let's give 'er a whirl!00:16
sylphieAlien__ \ that wouldn't work too well. the os is always writing log files etc etc00:17

daftykinsislan: easiest way imo00:55
TradeFortressand the server was hacked on the 12th given mysql timestamps00:55
daftykinsTradeFortress: that's what i was asking. sounds like someone edited your logs then perhaps00:56

TradeFortressI wanted to know if "Received disconnect from 202.112.3.16: 11 : bye Bye [preauth" means that they got in00:58
TradeFortressOr not.00:58
JonEdneyTradeFortress, what log file is that from?  That's a pretty generic entry.00:58
daftykinsTradeFortress: it means whoever was connected, disconnected... be it a connection attempt fraudulently or successfully. the message is pretty obvious00:59

IdleOneiLogical: no, won't have anything to do with UbuntuOne. I believe you need to allow the app in facebook first though. I'm not entirely sure how this is done.01:05
JonEdneyharris, you should be able to select Wine as a default application?01:05
Guest88142yeah but my default install took 8 gig could I reduce it to maybe 4 or 2 gig I only surf internet e-mail play some light games and tinker with inkscape and lmms01:05
BONG_ITtheres ab error01:05
usr13harris: Since MS Office is not a native application, I think you'll just have to start MS Office first and then open the file.01:05
JonEdneyGuest88142, swap is for when your PC/laptop hibernates, so it can save your current used RAM.01:05
Guest88142I don't do either01:06
JonEdneyI've heard that if you should match it if you have under 8 GBs.01:06
usr13Guest88142: How large is your HD?01:06
JonEdneyI don't hibernate, I have 8 GB RAM, I do not use swap space.01:06
harrisi right clicked properites and open with a wine application when i double click nothing happens01:06
Guest88142my hd is 32gig01:06
JonEdneyharris, because MS Office is working through Wine, you may not be able to link it as a default program.01:06
usr13JonEdney: There is not a good reason not to.01:07
harrisi could in 9.0401:07
Guest88142if thats how its gotta be thats ok I was just wondering01:07
JonEdneyI've never ran into an issue with no swap space *shrugs01:08
usr13Guest88142: That's a pretty small HD01:08
Guest88142well I know there has to be some01:08
julian-delphikiwell, you don't really *need* swap, its just very useful if you have a small amount of ram01:08

daftykinsislan: Dell 1704?01:26
julian-delphikiSaschaP: considering 12.10 is current... it's worth a shot01:27
julian-delphikior even upgrading to 12.1001:27
islandafty, yep, that's the Dell name anyway01:27
islandaftykins, it's really a Broadcom BCM 4314201:27

SaschaPjulian-delphiki: why should i overinstall a lts with a testing version?01:27
daftykinsislan: hrmm other decision, is 32 or 64-bit01:28
islandafty, I'm running 32-bit ubuntu01:29
daftykinsislan: yeah, i'll guess with 32 then :S01:29
julian-delphikiSaschaP: 12.10 is not testing...01:29

julian-delphikiSaschaP: and you're sure you're up to date on updates?01:31
SaschaPyes, julian01:31
wesam_SachaP: sudo apt-get upgrade usually fixes all your problems.01:32
wesam_and then a nice apt-get upgrade.01:32

SaschaPi already tried to reinstall phonon, but it didn't make anything01:36
SaschaPand sorry, but "apt-get -install --reinstall gstreamer" would only bring out the error, that there is no "gstreamer" package01:37

ubottucub: 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 !classic01:59

cublet's be real02:02
k1l_cub: gnome2 is gone. so you have to find a new way. you can choose the gnome2 lookalike gnome-classic, whihc is a cut-off version. or you try xfce or lxde or other desktops02:02
alcaprawncub:02:02
alcaprawn;) update02:02
k1l_cub: support ends for the desktop version end of april. so we recommend it02:02
cubokay thank you k1l_02:02
cubso i'm guessing updates will also end then/02:03
k1l_yep. that is the point. only the server packages get stll updates after april02:03
cubic02:03
alcaprawnwhat window manager do you guys use gnome?02:03
cubwell i got 3 months to decide..02:04
cubidk if this pc will be able to support the new gnome... it's old02:04
k1l_after 12.04 there is no difference betweeen server and desktop anymore. so that gets 5 years support for both02:04
alcaprawnwhat you running cub?02:04
k1l_cub: see xfce or lxde02:04
cubi'm running this off of an old HP Compaq, 15gb harddrive and like idk 1 gb of ram02:05

munderwo-workHi All. I've got a bare server running ubuntu 12.04, and on startup its got a load of close 8. Using htop it shows high cpu load from kernel threads? Does anybody have some tips to workout what is happening?02:15
munderwo-workITs a 4 Core server02:16
Kraln-munderwo-work: that sounds suspiciously like a storage issue, like rebuilding raid or something02:16
julian-delphikimunderwo-work: i dont doubt that it has a high load after booting, it should recover quickly.02:16

NukienCan anyone point me in the right direction for building an install udeb/something that can query the user for information, much as the tasksel one does during regular install? I need to have user select from a bunch of choices (radiobutton) plus enter a couple of text fields. Want to do that as early as possible after ISO boot, that then feeds preseeded install.03:50

kcoffmanbut when I mess with the PCM and master volumes they change my bar but it's like if you bar represents 100% of sound from 0(being silent) to 100(being loudest) at 80% is when you can hear sound, if it's anything less than 80%, it's totally silent from 79% to 0%; at 100% it's really like 120% and I am afraid it will blow my speakers.

oospillhi .. trying to install ubuntu 10.04.4 along side windows xp installed on NTFS partition.  I used ntfsresize to shrink the ntfs file system to half size, then used fdisk to delete all 4 primary partitions and then created a ntfs part and a linux part .. when I reboot the live CD, fdisk shows the new fstable I made, but clicking up on 'places' shows my original full size ntfs drive/part --05:18
oospillI did all this cause gparted would change the size of the ntfs partition .. any idease?  much thanks05:18

kcoffmanHow do I burn an ISO to a jump drive (tails)05:30
jhansonxi_WXZ: You can sort-of do that if you configure X.org for non-Xinerama or "Zaphod" mode where each monitor has it's own X session.  But you can't drag a window from one to the other.  Many desktop environments don't support it correctly either.  Xfce is the best with Ubuntu 12.04.05:30
WXZjhansonxi_: I have zaphod mode right now, but I really need to move windows across, it doesn't have to be a drag thing, I can do it in commandline, but windows have to move.05:31
jhansonxi_WXZ: With this mode you configure the desktop on each monitor independently with their own menus, panels, and workspaces.05:32
crazycory22and i lost my mouse...05:34
jhansonxi_WXZ:  It's not possible to drag a window from one desktop to the other with Zaphod mode.  They are independent.  Some desktop environments can drag text between apps on each, and some file managers may be able to support drag-n-drop of files, but nothing else.05:34

magn3tsjhansonxi, too true, nvidia's prop driver barfs on these cheap Korean panels even though Nouvareu picks up on it just fine even with bad EDID output.06:33
dr_willisoospill:  the installer tools wont be able to resize a damaged ntfs partion06:34
oospillI used ntfsresize to change the primary partition, and then used fdisk to create another primary .. linux of course06:34
magn3tsjhansonxi, I have to manually modeset with `nvidia` :0 I think tion has a simpler problem though.06:34
dr_willisoospill:  so areyou  sure it succeded? or did you force it some how?06:34
oospillahhhh06:34
oospillI did -f to force06:34
dr_willisresizeing a damaged ntfs- is not a good idea.. ;)06:34

dr_williscould have  repired the ntfs...06:35

magn3tsBen64, if his monitor really isn't putting out EDID info, I fully would expect the nvidia driver to bork on it.06:37
oospillgparted doesn't want to do anything to the ntfs fs06:37
tionits not going to work i need a custume IEDI file like on the web page thats for sure06:38
oospillthe fs has a exclamation point next to it06:38
dr_willisIf you have a backup of the ntfs.. id just delete it and restore it from backups.. but a ! may mean its mounted/in use..06:38
dr_willischeck the mount command output - be sure its not mounted06:38
magn3tstion, unfortunately, to do that, you either need to fire up nouvareu and get it's settings to write a modeline or EDI file or you're going to need the manual or just take a shot with an EDID calculator06:38
oospillchecking ...06:38

magn3tsguest____, no, sorry. You should just ask your question though.06:41
dr_willisFeedhurley:  ftp is old and considered a security risk. better to learn to use ssh and sftp06:42
tionwhy did they have to make xrandr and break xorg.conf?06:42

magn3tsxrandr broke xorg.conf?06:42
Feedhurleydr_willis i guess its much more complicated aswell?06:42

tionand playing urt and quake306:43
guest____magn3ts . but i didnt get the way to do that06:43

magn3tstion, then they either broke their driver, you can use xrandr or you can still set the res manually in xorg.06:43
tionand everything worked06:43
magn3tstion, Ben's right, delete your xorg.conf and start over.06:44
oospillntfsresize shows 'current volume' at 39G and current device size 80G .. that's what I told it to do!! however gparted shows the disk as 80G!!! fdisk shows 37 and 4006:44
oospillntfs sux06:44
Feedhurleydr_willis hmm okey, ill take a look at that. My goal at the moment is not a perfect server, more of learning and then go on get it better and more secure. By the way does ssh let you stream content from your server?06:44
magn3tstion, this is like helping my parents do Quicken. They spend 4 hours on it, I go in and reset it and do it from scratch in 10 minutes. sometimes it's time to just go back to a clean slate.06:44
magn3tsguest____, managesieve? That's dovecot for managing sieve scripts for mail related stuff, as far as I know.06:44
dr_willisFeedhurley:  stream is a rather broad term. :) a UPNP server can stream video...   samba has 'shares'    you can  mount a remote ssh location to a local directory via sshfs and play stuff.06:45

tionis this stupid or what?06:46
magn3tsoospill, according to the warnings gparted usually spits out, sometimes you need a restart for the kernel to see new partition sizes06:46
Feedhurleydr_willis is samba a type of server or just a extension software?06:46

cfhowlettevilthought, or maybe in #ubuntu-server??08:24
thec4keare you using samba?08:24
alimjevilthought: DD-WR guys are much better with routers08:25
evilthoughtIt'e EXT4 permission question -- nothing to do with  DD-WRT08:25
IdleOneevilthought: The issue is not linux, the issue is windows not being able to write to ext4 (deleting a file is writing to disk)08:25
=== anderson is now known as Guest21601
cfhowlettevilthought, or you might make that particular partition windows friendly, i.e. NTFS ...08:25
evilthoughtIdleOne, that's not the issue .. the windows doen't read the files directly. The drive is connected to the router08:26
alimjevilthought: Most ASUS modems work differently with attached USB HDDs. Some routers support FTP uploads only08:26
evilthoughtThat's not the issuie .. I can play the video from Windows machine just fine08:26

alimjevilthought: Did you try to upload files to it throught FTP?08:27
evilthoughtIt's EXT4 ownership isue08:28
thec4keevilthought: how are you connecting to the router from your pc, windows network?08:28
IdleOneevilthought: NO the issue is you not understanding, Windows CAN NOT write to ext4, when you delete a file you are writing to disk.08:28
evilthoughtYes, Windows network .. even Android phone can connect to the drive via the router and play videos or read files just fine08:28
icerootevilthought: windows is not seeing ext4, windows is seeing samba(cifs) or ntfs so its not a ext4 issue08:29
alimjEvilthought: If you think it is permission issue, connect it to a Linux Desktop and do a "chmod a+w" on the drive08:29

evilthoughtAnounymously08:30
IdleOneok, enough. This is off topic and not an Ubuntu issue. Please take it elsewhere08:31
icerootevilthought: then you are connecting as a guest and not as the owner of a file08:31
icerootevilthought: guests/others/world does not have write permission by default08:31
icerootevilthought: and its offtopic!!!08:31
thec4keI'll try to point you in the right direction:  this has nothing to do with ntfs, it's an issue with samba if your router is running linux08:31
alimjevilthought: ASUS modems have some AiDisk. However, it is offtopic as icreroot said earlier08:31
evilthought"guests/others/world does not have write permission by default" .. exactly .. bow we are on topic. How do I change permission (from Ubuntu) so that guests can the ownsership08:32
thec4kebasically you have to map the anonymous login to an account on the router and give that account write permission to things08:32
evilthoughtI cn connect the drive to Ubuntu VM and change permissions so that guests have full access to the folders .. but the question is how?08:33
evilthoughtlet me paste the screen shot from ubuntu VM08:33
apm1why can't i have 2 x sessions on 2 diff. ttys ?08:34

RubyI dont have a problem but I need to know how to do something08:59
Rubyboot ubuntu into readonly08:59
godi am a newbie on ubuntu and am having trouble getting the sound to sync up with the video08:59
RubyI have a system already set up09:00
RubyI dont want to set up a new one unless it is a mirrored readonly one09:00
Rubyjust want to modify grub or something09:00
dr_willisRuby:  you mount specific partions/filesystems as read only. ive never seen a 'reboot into read only' mode09:00
Rubyhow do I do that?09:01
dr_willisYou can have most of / as read only except for a few system directories09:01
dr_willisits not a trivial thing.09:01
godi watch television online but i cannot get the sound to sync to the video09:01
RubyI am a lil bit new09:01
evilthoughtI solved my problem!09:01
dr_willisRuby:  why do you need to do this?09:01
cfhowlett!patience|god09:01
ubottugod: 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/09:01
Rubywhy does that matter?09:02
thec4kebecause mounting everything readonly will probably break some things09:02
dr_willisRuby:  because tehre may be better ways to do whatever it is you are trying to acomplish09:02
dr_willisYou CAN have most of the system read only. but not all of it.09:02
Rubymaking so I dont write any data to my HDD09:02
Rubylike malware09:02
evilthoughtI had to use "# chmod -R 777 /media/AiDisk_a1: inside router console09:02
thec4ketheres basically no malware for linux09:03
icerootevilthought: 777 is always bad09:03
thec4keunless you do something very wrong09:03
dr_willisRuby:  if your user does somthing to install malware - then it will only affect teh users home dir/files09:03
Rubyok09:03
icerootevilthought: and still!! offtopic09:03
Rubywell its not a topic that I like talking about09:03
godcan someone please help me?09:03
evilthoughtobviously there was solution09:03
Rubymostly log files09:03
icerootevilthought: make something insecure is never a solution09:03
Rubymetadata gets stroed in places when I dont want it to09:04
=== trekkit is now known as egarals
dr_willisRuby:  search for guides on having a read only system i guess. theres no trivial check ox  option to do it as far as i know.09:04
RubyI want to do it temporarily to a partition I already have ;)09:04
thec4kethe easy was is add the ro option to /etc/fstab09:04
RubyI have done googling09:04
evilthoughtthere is no OS on this drive. It's a USB drive with mostly video files connected to the router. There is no need for security here09:04
Rubyok ill google that09:04
thec4kebut i guarantee that will break something09:04
dr_willisRuby:  you can use the ro option.. but you may make a unuseable system09:04
RubyI can reboot into non-ro and it will function properly?09:05
hilariousanyone know if i can tile my windows in ubuntu ?09:05

thec4keto edit fstab09:05
Rubyok09:05
godwhat is a good way to sync sound and video?09:05
RubyI can go into that easily with grub09:05
thec4keat minimum you need /var and /home to be writable just to use the system09:06
cfhowlettgod, NONE of your videos are sound/video sync'd?09:06
godno09:07
Rubythat might be a issue seeing as /var/log and /home/name/.bash_history09:07
godyoutube is fine but vlc is acting crazy09:07
dr_willisRuby:  and more then just those i imagine09:07
cfhowlettgod, easiest way ... try a different player.09:07
hilariouswhat is my window manager if i use gnome classic ?09:07
godwhich one do you recomend?09:08
hilariousby default ?09:08
RubyI am making a distro currently for personal use and I dont want to get all my files that are not supposed to be there on the system and such..09:08
cfhowlettgod movie player works well for me ...09:08
Rubywell maybe I could make it so it writes everything into ram09:08
Rubyboots the HDD like its a livecd09:08
Rubynothing changable09:08
godwell, sometimes the site i stream off of only lets me use certain ones09:08
cfhowlettgod, pretty sure you'll find movie player works with most providers ...09:09
godi will try it.09:09
godthanks!09:09
cfhowlettgod, but if not, rather than stream the video, download and save it to play offline09:09
cfhowlettgod, no worries.  have fun, be safe.09:09
godi would download, but i have little to no space on this computer09:09
cfhowlettgod, understood.09:10
evilthoughtthis solved the problem http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8195/8379017919_93b86f77c0_b.jpg09:10
godi stream usually vlc works well and sometime putlocker does, but both have been crazy09:10
Rubyill try -ro..09:11
godi was trying to stream from cbs.com earlier and it was nuts too09:11
cfhowlettgod, vlc is fickle that way ...09:11
godhow can stream but pick a player that works?09:12
cfhowlettgod, yep.09:12
godis there a way to do that?09:13
cfhowlettgod, I think you'd need to start the player then navigate to the stream ...09:13
godi have no idea how to do that09:14
cfhowlettgod also see the xine player09:14
godi will check zine out09:14

cfhowlett!nounity|rabbit_,09:34
ubotturabbit_,: 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 !classic09:34

vltHello. I use Ubuntu 12.04 LTS. After the last Thunderbird update my home dir exploded. ~/.thunderbird has grown to about 10 GB while the maildir size on the server is only 2 GB. Any idea how to fix this?09:39
dv-untaken: how are you checking if it's enabled?09:40
untakendv- I am not, but when I logout of unity, gdm is on both monitors. When xinerama is enabled, I have one for the login and one blank with the backdrop only.09:41
ActionParsnipuntaken: have you troed a different session? like xfce?09:41
untakendv-: as its not enabled at the gdm point, when I login to xmonad, I also notice that firefox for instance is on both windows09:42
dv-untaken: the displays are cloned? or the window is maximized over both screens?09:42
gfixlerpython09:42
untakenI don't have xfce installed, but its definitely a xinerama issue, as gdm should be showing it correctly09:42

ubottuSri19: A Personal Package Archive (PPA) can provide alternate software not normally available in the offical Ubuntu repositories - Looking for a PPA? See https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+ppas - WARNING: PPAs are unsupported third-party packages, and you use them at your own risk. See also !addppa and !ppa-purge09:43

dv-untaken: it does seem odd that logging out of unity would affect gdm like that09:46

untakenit does...Do you know if the displays section in the cp writes to a file or something? I noticed there is no longer a xorg.conf file09:47
Marscrhola alguien me puede ayudar?09:48
icerootSri19: you need ppas where the package is not called firefox but firefox18 and so on, because you can only install one package with the same name09:49
icerootSri19: also you should only use the stable version09:49
dv-untaken: i believe xorg.conf is basically no longer necessary because everything is autodetected. you can still write one though. running X -configure as root should give you a basic xorg.conf09:50

BillyZane|2nileyp, i will give that a read :)12:24
Ben64JuJuBee: set up on one then clone to the others12:24
HyperbyteJuJuBee, LTSP.12:24
ActionParsnipBillyZane|2: try:  sudo apt-get install nvidia-graphics-drivers-experimental-31012:24
HyperbyteJuJuBee, check http://www.ltsp.org/12:24
BillyZane|2ActionParsnip: : ok, i'll give that a try12:25
HyperbyteJuJuBee, you can deploy fat client images over the network quite easily with even a very low powered server.  Means only one installation to set up/maintain, and 25 or more clients that benefit from it.12:26
JuJuBeeHyperbyte: nice.  Looks great.  I have a Core2 Duo 2.2G with 8G RAM on my server and new computers i5 3.26G with 8G RAM clients.  Seems like they should be reversed :D12:29
BillyZane|2ActionParsnip:  the link rileyp gave was great12:29
BillyZane|2ActionParsnip:  evidently the regular install causes major problems, which is what i was experiencing12:30
BillyZane|2only problem is, my internet is so whack right now, i don't think i could even attempt this12:30
HyperbyteJuJuBee, well, there's ltsp-pnp, which has identical image/software for thin and fat clients.  Meaning, let's say you get a computer which is totally underpowered, you can let it be a thin client and use the server's hardware to run the software.   From a user experience it won't make a single difference.  I could explain more in #ltsp if you like.12:31
PatrickDickeyHyperbyte: Isn't that one of the concepts behind Edubuntu? In other words, that's something they offer12:32
HyperbytePatrickDickey, actually, Edubuntu installs/configures LTSP by default during setup.  LTSP is included in all Ubuntu variants.12:32
PatrickDickeyHyperbyte, that's what I thought. I know Edubuntu actually uses it as a feature though (I've never really heard of it in the other variants--only Edubuntu).12:33
HyperbyteWell, Edubuntu was created around LTSP. :)  It includes other educational software as well.  LTSP is used in lots of schools around the world.12:34
JuJuBeeHyperbyte: I will join #ltsp if you don't mind12:34
HyperbyteJuJuBee, it's a public channel.  Sure.12:34

Ben64BillyZane|2: could you paste  "ls /lib/modules/`uname -r`/updates/dkms"13:03
BillyZane|2sure13:03
Ben64oh no, its not reinstall bad13:03
BillyZane|2ls: cannot access /lib/modules/uname -r/updates/dkms: No such file or directory13:04
BillyZane|2i type this in...13:04
Ben64you have to keep the things around uname -r13:04
BillyZane|2riz@NightViper:~$ ls /lib/modules/'uname -r'/updates/dkms13:04
Ben64not single quotes, its the backtick13:05
Ben64tilde without the shift13:05
BillyZane|2hmmmm13:05
uragano2Hello, i am using ubuntu 12.04.1 often via ssh. Few days ago i noticed that on logon it doesn't show anymore last login details. Searching i discover the command "last", but it says that there is no log file.13:05
Ben64left of the 1 key :)13:05
BillyZane|2oh, i should inform you, everything i did, i did from this guide... http://www.dedoimedo.com/computers/ubuntu-quetzal-nvidia.html13:05
BillyZane|2however, i did not use the backtick while doing it13:06
BillyZane|2i used single quote13:06
BillyZane|2ls: cannot access /lib/modules/3.5.0-21-generic/updates/dkms: No such file or directory13:06
Ben64strange13:06
BillyZane|2perhaps that is because i removed it?13:07

Ben64BillyZane|2: how about before you restart, try  sudo apt-get install build-essential linux-source linux-headers linux-headers-`uname -r`13:07
BillyZane|2ok13:08
dufauragano2: have you checked if the log files exist13:08
AminosAmigosI have all needed files they are just not linked to each other13:08
BillyZane|2it asks me to explicitly select one to install13:08
uragano2dufa: i checked if file /var/log/wtmp exists, but it doesn't13:09
Ben64which one?13:09
BillyZane|2it says 'linux-headers' has no installation candidate13:09
dufauragano2: right, I believe /var/log/wtmp is only logged if it exists13:10
uragano2dufa: and apache log file is deleted everytimes after reboot too. I created wtmp before to reboot13:11

PapaSierra_hi, i'm new to ubuntu so i don't fully understand how ppa's work. i need to install a recent version of npm. i believe the ubuntu 12.04 version is too old. so i was pointed in the direction of this: https://launchpad.net/~chris-lea/+archive/node.js/ but i'm not sure how to use it13:14
BillyZane|2Ben64: what should i do now?13:14
BlackPanxhttp://picpaste.com/pics/Screenshot_at_2013-01-14_14_11_58-lwAMZBVV.1358169156.png can someone look into this... i have 3ware controller for raid, and port 1 last time failed and when i dismounted it, it automatically picked it back and started rebuilding raid, but set port 0 to unknown state... anyone has idea what to do ? i have taken backup of stuff in case something happens... anyone had this problem so far ?13:14
Ben64BillyZane|2: ok, then i'd purge all the nvidia packages and then "sudo apt-get install nvidia-common nvidia-experimental-310 nvidia-experimental-310-dev nvidia-settings-experimental-310"13:15
uragano2dufa: but i don'e understand why i lost my log files everytimes :(13:15
PapaSierra_following my original post above, this is an example of how i'm using Chef to add the dotdeb ppa: http://www.hastebin.com/raw/vecayudima13:15
BillyZane|2how do i purge the nvidia packages?13:15
dufauragano2: so, have you tried creating apache log and wtmp log files, and when you reboot they're gone?13:15
ActionParsnipBillyZane|2: try:  sudo apt-get --reinstall install dkms13:16
BillyZane|2is it dpkg -P nvidia-experimental-13:16

ubottuUbuntu 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 !classic13:27

TomyLobodonttrustem,  those are emt64, aka amd6416:11
meetTomyLobo: thanks :)16:12
everesttActionParsnip, won't there be any leftovers still being used somewhere...somehow?16:12
histo_joey: if you really want to make sure you could just remove the network-manager application. Then there is no way that it could be doing it.16:12

TomyLobodonttrustem, except if you have one of the very very first intel macs. they had IA6416:12

everesttActionParsnip, ah! ok ...Thanks a lot :)16:13
histousr13: someone else may need to chime in16:13
ActionParsnipeverestt: no worries. I recommend you disable Java in libreoffice if you don't use its functrionality, makes it load faster16:13
usr13histo: You are correct.  uninstalling network-manager is easy.  (He can always re-install it if he ever wanted to use it again.)16:13
everesttActionParsnip, what part of libreoffice specifically uses java?16:14

cousteauAnkit, have you tried pasting it more times?  maybe that way it starts working.  Whatever you do, don't try giving us more info of what you want or why it's not working.17:35
JD_543http://pastebin.com/FXbs4uxf I'm having trouble with firestorm viewer17:35
scarra3I have been thinking about making the switch from Windows 7 to Ubuntu 12.10 but I heard there are installation problems where people have to repair something in the boot process17:38
=== chiluk is now known as chiluk_away
Ankitwho should reply17:38
Ankitanyone17:39
MonkeyDustscarra3  it's the grub, you have to repair it, if you installed ubuntu first17:39
cousteauAnkit, well, maybe nobody knows the answer17:39
cousteauor didn't understand the question17:39
scarra3MonkeyDust: I havent installed it yet but will I get the install problem?17:39
llutz!details | ania17:39
ubottuania: Please give us full details. For example: "I have a problem with ..., I'm running Ubuntu version .... When I try to do ..., I get the following output: ..., but I expected it to do ..."17:39
=== chiluk_away is now known as chiluk
cousteauanyway, annoyingly repeating the question won't get you more people listen to you17:39
llutzwhoops, sry ania wrong nick17:40
MonkeyDustscarra3  first win, then lin -> won't give problems17:40
scarra3MonkeyDust: First win then linux what do you mean17:42
scarra3I am going to fully wipe my system17:42
syrelyrehey guys, i just updated to java 1.7.0_11 and java -version reports that version aswell but firefoxs' about:plugins page still says 1.7.0_1017:42
MonkeyDustscarra3  then there's no problem17:42
scarra3MonkeyDust: Ok thanks17:43

bennett1Hi! I am trying to understand here the /etc/shadow file. Are the passwords stored as a MD5 hash? I've read that they are, but I tried converting my own password to md5 and comparing it to the one in the shadow file, and they are different17:43
bennett1anyone knows why?17:43
dchernivbennett1, its not md5, pbbly blowfish or somehing stronger17:43
SonikkuAmericaGood to be back in Ubuntu again!17:44
bennett1dcherniv: hm, any idea on where to find that info?17:44
histobennett1: http://www.tldp.org/LDP/lame/LAME/linux-admin-made-easy/shadow-file-formats.html17:44
cousteaubennett1, maybe man shadow17:45
bennett1man shadow doesn't say the algorithm17:45
bennett1histo: taking a look, thanks17:45
bennett1histo: doens't say the algorithm either17:46
cousteaubennett1, I think it might be crypt()17:47
cousteauman 3 crypt17:47
cousteaunot sure, though17:47
histobennett1: did you look at man shadow?17:48
bennett1cousteau: yeah, man crypt has the info17:48
histobennett1: crypt DES probably salted also17:48
bennett1histo: yes, it doenst contain info on the algorithm17:48
bennett1it''s SHA-51217:49
bennett1whatever that is17:49
cousteaubennett1, not sure if it's crypt what shadow uses, but I think it is17:49
SonikkuAmericaSHA-512 is an algorithm for verifying checksums17:49
cousteauSHA-512 is a 512-bit SHA algorithm17:49
histocousteau: I think you can use multiple formats with crypt17:49
SonikkuAmericaIn the tradition of MD5, SHA-1 and SHA-25617:49
cousteaulike SHA117:49
cousteau(SHA1 uis 160 bits, MD5 is 128 bits)17:50
SonikkuAmericacousteau: Correct17:50
bennett1man shadow cites man 3 crypt17:50
bennett1and the password is preceeded by a $6$17:50
bennett1indicating it is SHA-51217:50
histocousteau: crypt can do md5 blowfish sha-256 sha-512 according the the man page17:50
SonikkuAmericaAnd, of course, typically the more bits an encrypt algorithm is, the more secure it is17:50
SonikkuAmerica*the 1st is = has17:50
bennett1SonikkuAmerica: what is a checksum?17:50
cousteaubennett1, those passwords are like   $<algo>$<salt>$<encrypted_password>17:51
SonikkuAmericabennett1: I hate to be lazy but: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Checksum17:52
SonikkuAmericaOr rather: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Checksum17:52
bennett1SonikkuAmerica: it's ok, I'm reading it :P17:52
histobennett1: what are you trying to crack it with?17:52
cousteaufor example, $5$abc$defghij means 5=SHA512, salt = abc, password = defghij (encrypted)17:52
* cousteau leaves17:53
Tex_NickSonikkuAmerica : wikipedia isn't lazy ... tis a good resource :-)17:53
bennett1histo: right now I'm just trying to understand the file17:53
SonikkuAmericaTex_Nick: True, but I was being lazy.17:53
histobennett1: here's a cracking tutorial17:53
bennett1well, happy to know that it is something safer than md517:53
Tex_Nickunderstood :)17:53
histobennett1: well not really safe but thank god it's salted17:55
SonikkuAmericaWell then what's $6$ at the beginning if $5$ is SHA-512?17:55
bennett1SonikkuAmerica: $5$ is SHA-256, according to man 3 crypt17:56
SonikkuAmerica[12:52] <cousteau> for example, $5$abc$defghij means 5=SHA512, salt = abc, password = defghij (encrypted) <<< then cousteau messed this line up17:56
sathishHi guys, for some reason my laptop is always booting in to Unity 2D :( nVIDIA 610M card17:57
histobennett1: where did you jump to that the second perametor is the salt?17:57
bennett1histo: I didn't understand17:57
bennett1(sorry, my english is not that great)17:57
histobennett1: how did you come up with the second column is salt?17:57
bennett1what do you mean? It says in the man 3 crypt that the second column is salt17:58
sathishHi guys, for some reason my laptop is always booting in to Unity 2D :( nVIDIA 610M card, Installed nvidia-current followed instructions from forums, no luck. What should I do?17:59
ActionParsnipsathish: what CPU do you use?17:59
sathishActionParsnip: core i3 second gen18:00
ActionParsnipsathish: which one, there are many18:00
histobennett1: ahh I didn't see that my first browse through18:00
ActionParsnipsathish: cat /proc/cpuinfo    will tell you18:00
sathishActionParsnip: Intel® Core™ i3-2350M CPU @ 2.30GHz × 418:00
ActionParsnipsathish: is the system a laptop too?18:00
SonikkuAmericacousteau: How could (in the example noted above) the string "abc" be put into <salt>? It says that <salt> is a TWO-character string18:01
SonikkuAmerica(in the manpage)18:01
ActionParsnipsathish: you have a switchable GPU (optimus)18:01
sathishActionParsnip: yes, Asus laptop18:01
ActionParsnipsathish: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Bumblebee18:02
ActionParsnipsathish: it can be a real headache to get working, imho its best avoided18:02
sathishActionParsnip: I just installed bumblebee with nvidia current18:02
SonikkuAmericaActionParsnip: I assume it was named Bumblebee because someone got all TransFormers happy? :)18:02
Sail /exit18:03
bennett1about MD5 hashes: do they contain special characters, or just a-z and 0-9?18:03
ActionParsnipsathish: oesn't the wiki not mention nvidia-current18:03
bennett1and they are case insensitive, right?18:03
ActionParsnipSonikkuAmerica: I think its a dirty hack, not worth the heartache18:03
histobennett1: yeah I don't think that the second field is the salt18:03
ActionParsnipbennett1: all alphanumeric18:03
sathishActionParsnip: is there anyhot key to switch between different graphic cards? I know this is a stupid question, but my neighbour kid was handling keyboard like crazy :|18:03
SonikkuAmericaActionParsnip: At least Unity 3D works with my Mobile Intel GMA965 chip. That I am thankful for.18:04
histobennett1: $hashtype$ start of encrypted pass $....18:04
ActionParsnipsathish: read the guide, it answers that18:04
histobennett1: int eh shaodw file18:04
ActionParsnipSonikkuAmerica: if you like Unity.. ;)18:04
SlOw_can i ask a question18:04
ActionParsnipSlOw_: you just did ;)18:04
ActionParsnipSlOw_: ask away18:04
SonikkuAmericaActionParsnip: I prefer GNOME Shell Remix myself, but right now it'
