usr13calavera: Please elaborate.00:07
calaveraWell... I can either fix either the MBR or GRUB, however, GRUB seems to be incapable of booting into 7. It gives me an invalid filepath error.00:08
calaveraI fixed MBR, and now I've been stuck using Windows for the past week or so.00:08
usr13calavera: So how did you fix the MBR?  (What did you do?)00:09
calaveraI ran fixmbr on the repair disk.00:09
usr13calavera: So you wiped out grub? Ok.  First off, your assumption that grub is incapable of booting Win7 is wrong.  So....00:10

=== g_byers is now known as gbyers[Away]
usr13calavera: Oh, I see.  Sorry.  I missunderstood.  Well, I guess it's back to square one.  Just re-install ubuntu.  But maybe this time, you might try resizing the Win7 partition with the on-board tools.  I think it's something like Control Panel -> System and Security -> Administrative Tools ->  Computer Management -> Disk Management00:21
Zattacki stopped it quick but it had startted to add ubuntu files to thr drives root00:22
usr13calavera: I'm not sure where you went wrong, but could be that your non-destructive partitioning was not so non-destructive?00:22
calaverausr13:  I could reinstall *buntu, but I'm using two hard drives in my laptop. W7 is on my primary, and *buntu is on my secondary.00:23
calaveraThey're not partitions.00:23
tekkbuzzZattack: was it your Z drive?00:23
usr13calavera: Well, again, I don't know where you went wrong.  Doing it on a second drive should be a pretty safe proceedure.  I suppose the second time around you may see the error of your way(s)...?00:24
lauratikanoooooooooo i want to know what the comunity is using as an alternative...00:24
calaveraI'll just reinstall, and hope for the best. Also, for some reason, GNU/Linux is messing with my VRAM/ UEFI on the motherboard. I have to open up my laptop and short out two pins to even be able to select from where to boot from. I then later have to reflash the UEFI.00:26
usr13calavera: Lots of people install Linux everyday and set up dual boot systems, some on single drives, some on separate drives, it's a relatively straight-forward process.  There are ways to mess it up, but if you just watch what you're doing, you should do ok.00:26
blkadderWhat sort of laptop?00:26
usr13calavera: I don't know about UEFI, would have to do a bit of research on that.  Maybe someone else can give you some advise about it?00:27

blkadderkderr: Using chef with ec2?00:29
kderrblkadder: Yeah00:29
kderrblkadder: It seems to just completely skip anything I write in the "chef" section. I'm guessing I need to make sure my AMI has a particular package?00:30
blkadderkderr: My knowledge of chef is somewhat limited but in my experience using it I'd knife the box first to do all the prep work (bootstrap)00:31
kderrblkadder: Yeah, I'm trying to find an alternative to that.00:32
blkadderYou also need a chef server. Are you using hosted chef from Opscode?00:32
kderrblkadder: My chef server is another ec2 instance.00:33
blkadderkderr: Gotcha.00:33
kderrblkadder: knife bootstrap requires you to have ssh access to the box from where you're running knife, which isn't always possible for me.00:33

z30n1cwhats the main difference between linux distros?00:41

sylphiez30n1c \ for example, ubuntu tries to atuomate the installs so that users can be dummies00:44
sylphiez30n1c \ likewise, it automates the process of getting packages00:44

x__i have two disks, would like to keep win7 on one, and install ubuntu with FDE on the other, how do i do this from the 12.10 installer?00:48
z30n1cyou mention file extensions,00:48
z30n1cthey lose me in linux.00:48
z30n1crpm, or deb etcc00:48
usr13z30n1c: file extensions are a non-issue on Linux systems.00:48
blkadderx__: Choose the second disk as the installation target.00:48
sylphiez30n1c \ file extensions don't necessarily mean anything in linux. The OS doesn't enforce them00:48
z30n1cbut they are there right? for help rather than nedd?00:49
sylphiez30n1c \ rpm is the way redhat (and centos) packages are distributed00:49
x__blkadder, it only allows you to choose disks AFTER you select 'alongside windows' or 'full disk with encryption / erase windows'00:49
usr13z30n1c: Yes, they are there.  rpm is Redhat Package Management  They do mean something, but just to the user.00:49
sylphiez30n1c \ it's not just a different file extension, it's a different format00:50
blkadderx__: So choose alongside windows and then select the second disk.00:50
z30n1cif i try to install the wrong rpm or deb etc on any linux system im using sometimes it works sometimes it doesnt,00:50

z30n1cif i download the source and build it, tends to work every time.00:50
x__blkadder, that's what i did, and it never encrypted the second disk00:50
jribz30n1c: and then you're left to maintain it00:51
sylphiez30n1c \ that's because debs and rpms are pre-built, but they are pre-built for certain distros00:51
magmablkadder: ok, there is a lot of subnets, so I cannot find it through arp00:51

jonascjHi, I'll give the question another try: Anyone using dmenu and able to specify fonts?00:52
z30n1cokay so deb / rpm etc are just easy to install against ./make etc ?00:52

usr13z30n1c: Yes, (as opposed to compiling from source).00:53

sylphiez30n1c \ while on the opposite end, slackware starts your system into a command console, and you start X windows with the command "startx"00:59

sylphieBroUnicorn \ what's the error message say?01:13
AceFacehello all01:13
jonascjjrib: om*g thank you. That dash have been missing the whole 30 minutes I've been at this01:13
BroUnicornsylphie: There isn't one. It just won't delete from the disk utility app on Mac. BTW: I will be done pestering this chat with questions soon. I had to delete ubuntu from my mac so I could install the free Windows 8 OS my University gave me, then I'm going to reinstall ubuntu and be done with all of this mess.01:14
sylphieBroUnicorn \ if you reinstall win 8, maybe you can reinstall it so that it doesn't use up all the disk space in the first place, so there will be so free space without resizing01:15
jribjonascj: it happens :)01:16
sylphieBroUnicorn \ just a guess but maybe mac disk utils won't delete it because it's not a partition OS X knows anything about?01:17

Cyber_AkumaWhat about my motherboard chipset then01:21
Cyber_AkumaI am guessing I am out of luck for the built-in wifi and bluetooth support?01:21
sylphieCyber_Akuma \ well, what kind of onboard sound was it?01:22
sylphieCyber_Akuma \ no, you're inluxk for wifi and bluetooth01:22
Cyber_Akumarealtek, but I disabled it because its primarly a windows machine and I use my soundblaster for sound01:22

MichaelPjust installed ati driver in 12.10... i have no panel or sidebar now01:26
AceFacei have a question. im reading this document: http://goo.gl/Mddr5 , and i am specifically looking at this snippet: http://goo.gl/QK4GF , and i am getting this error: http://goo.gl/U8Bjh , i am trying to set up ejabberd in a cluster and the docs say to "On second run the following command as the ejabberd daemon user, in the working directory of ejabberd" but i dont quite know how to do this. Ive tried "sudo -u ejabberd command" but it produces and err01:26
Cyber_AkumaAlso, if I use a livecd, can I install the drivers (obviosly in ram so it won't be permanent) so I can see if they work first? Or would I need to reboot, thus wiping out the drivers01:26
sylphieCyber_Akuma \ yes, you can run the live cd to see how all your devices detect before installing01:27
Cyber_Akumasylphie: i menat installing drivers that aren't included on the livecd, or possibly not even in the repos01:30
Cyber_Akumaespeially for the motherboard chipset or gpu01:31
=== Tiktalik is now known as `_`
Cyber_AkumaWould I be able to do that on a livecd without any permanent changes?01:31
=== `_` is now known as Tiktalik
sylphieCyber_Akuma \ you can find out how well you're covered driverwise using the livecd01:31
sylphieCyber_Akuma \ your sound might be a question, but the rest of it will probably have drivers.01:32
sylphieCyber_Akuma \ most of the video cards in use have drivers. If you have an nvidia card, you get two drivers to choose from01:34
sylphieCyber_Akuma \ I'd suggest (personally) the opensource "nouveau" driver instead of the proprietary "nvidia" driver01:35

igor_i have a question about pendrive linux.01:42
Tex_Nick!details | igor01:43
ubottuigor: 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 ..."01:43
igor_i have never used a pendrive linux.  i have an uncle that is tired of getting virus' from windows so he wants tp try linux  i thought pendrive would be nice.01:43
igor_oik. sorry01:43
igor_what is the drawbacks of using a boota\ble form if linux01:44
sylphieIf you wnt to install linux to an external pendrive, try to make sure it's a mechanical drive and not a ssd. all the writes to a ssd shorten it's life01:45
igor_how would i know the difference?  are common drives mechanical?01:46
escottigor_, all pendrive are ssds01:46
igor_ok. i though so.01:46
sylphieright now, ssd drives are becoming very popular, the older ones were micro-mechanical01:47
igor_so it would be ok to use to just try out linux for maybe a month?01:47
sylphieit would work01:48
igor_yea. he just wants to try it out.01:48
sylphiea second external drive is the safest way to try linux01:49
igor_i was wondering if their was any other drawbacks to it. like ...security, program installs?01:49
blkadderPlease practice safe Linuxing.01:49
sylphieigor_ \ when you boot to the pendrive, all the program install will go to the pendrive01:50
igor_cool. can i use a different username and password withit also? will it save to it?01:51
escottigor_, there is essentially no security benefit to usernames/passwords for installs to removable disks, but yes you can01:52
igor_it will run much slower cause its running from usb?01:53
escottigor_, mixed.01:53
sylphiessds usually run very fast01:53
igor_but in usb 2.0?01:53
sylphieusb 2.0 has a theoretical max spe3ed of 60 mb/sec01:54
escottigor_, usb flash disks are slow to write (think about all the times you sit there while the light flashes before you can eject), but reads are fast01:54
gassedI am a linux novice, anyone here point me in the direction of a tutorial to get VNC working on Ubuntu 12.04LTS01:54
igor_ok thanks01:55
sylphieif you want to spend a little extra money, you can get an external usb hdd enclosure that uses a standard hdd01:55
ubottuVNC is a protocol for remote desktop. https://help.ubuntu.com/community/VNCOverSSH describes how to use it securely.  It works best over fast connections, otherwise look at !FreeNX01:56
igor_yea.  i was trying to be cheap about it.  he is a pc noob. and i didnt want to go and install it to his pc right away and change all the boot configs and all.01:58
sylphieif it's on a second gdd, there do not need to be any changes to the windows configs01:59
Tex_Nickigor : i've been using usb sata dock for several years now ... you can swap drives out easily ... they work great ... http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&DEPA=0&Order=BESTMATCH&N=-1&isNodeId=1&Description=usb3+sata+dock&x=0&y=001:59
sylphieand if they don't like linux, they can still use the second drive for backups02:00
Mathrys83hmmm my linux side isnt recognizing any other the other partions02:00
Tex_Nickigor : problem with usb mechanical drives is that ac pi won't spin down the drive :(02:02
igor_cool. thanks for the input.  so linux would run fine from a sata dock? linux for me runs much faster and smoother than windows on my multi boot pc02:02
AceFacecan someone help me interpret some documentation?02:03
vifanqUDev doesn't mount external drives to /media automatically?02:03
igor_ok. so if he liked it, it would be advisable to just install to the main HDD?02:03
escottvifanq, udev never did the mounting. udisks does02:04
escottAceFace, only if you ask02:04
escottMathrys83, and?02:04
vifanqescott: should I install udisks, or udisks2 ?02:04
jgsprattHello.  I have this problem with DHCPD on ubuntu 10.04: http://hastebin.com/caxipaqeru.vhdl02:05
AceFaceim looking at step 2 (aka 4.2.2) here: http://www.ejabberd.im/files/doc/guide.html#htoc28 and i dont know how to "run under ejabberd"02:05
sylphieigor_ \ it's always better to keep windows and linux on different drives02:05
AceFacedoes this mean under the user ejabberd?02:05
akHello.Is there a way to connect to a wifi throught wlan0 and use it same time to create an AP on the same card?Thanks in advance!02:05
jgspratthow can I fix this problem?02:05
jgsprattwhat does it mean that it doesn't have a subnet configured?02:05
escottak, not without specialized hardware support02:05
dr_willisAceFace: run as the ejabberd user. yes02:05
jambeedrumsylphie: are you shure the question is there? can i just type "man courier" ?02:06
jgsprattI clearly configured a subnet: subnet netmask {02:06
Mathrys83i dunno im lost i live updated to 12.04 and now i cant see my other drives and cant get back to windows and what not02:06
jgsprattThat was line 16 of the paste.02:06
escottvifanq, both? just install ubuntu-desktop02:06
akescott , meaning?02:06
AceFacedr_willis: does this mean i use "sudo -u ejabber COMMAND" ?02:06
igor_ok. would 2 internal sata's be the thing to do?02:06
jgsprattSomehow, I need the dhcp server to start working soon so that I can get PXE boot working on this.02:06
sylphiejambeedrum \ at the top of that page was a link the courier mail server wiki which functions like man pages02:06
dr_willisAceFace:  or use su. or omthing like that command02:07
ubuntuaddictedblkadder, are you there?02:07
ubuntuaddictedfor some reason my apache2 isn't starting after I restarted my computer02:07
AceFacedr_willis: i try that, and i get this error: http://paste.ubuntu.com/1543220/02:07
sylphieigor_ \ that would be the best way, if he really liked linux. but it would involve some hardware installation02:08
ubuntuaddictedsomething is already binding to port 80 so apache2 doesn't start. what is nginx?02:08
ubuntuaddictedi don't even recall installing nginx02:09
TheLordOfTimeubuntuaddicted, nginx is a different webserver.02:09
ubuntuaddictedTheLordOfTime, what could have possibly installed it?02:09
TheLordOfTimeubuntuaddicted, sudo apt-get remove nginx nginx-light nginx-full02:09
escottak, if they were on the same channel there shouldn't be anything that would actually prevent what you are proposing, but to jump different channels would be a problem02:09
TheLordOfTimeubuntuaddicted, no idea02:09
ubuntuaddictedTheLordOfTime, that's just strange, now packages are just installing by themselves. lol02:10
dr_willisi imagine you installed it..02:10
dr_willisand dident notice02:10
escottak, you really want some kind of hardware that can tune and transmit on two different channels at the same time02:11
jgsprattdoes dhcpd actually work on ubuntu?02:11
ubuntuaddicteddr_willis, unless it came with something else. maybe mythweb?02:11
ubuntuaddictedor when I installed php5?02:11
TheLordOfTimeubuntuaddicted, php5 doesn't depend on nginx02:11
dr_willisubuntuaddicted:  no idea. i dont use mythtv any more02:11
TheLordOfTimeubuntuaddicted, afaik nothing really depends on nginx.  except some customized ISOs.02:11
igor_it would require a grub loader then?02:12
TheLordOfTimequestion" does Kubuntu get the LTS title?02:12
sylphieigor_ \ the grub loader would go on the second drive02:12
TheLordOfTimemy understanding was that was only Ubuntyu02:12
TheLordOfTimeUbuntu *02:12
ubuntuaddicteddr_willis, TheLordOfTime well, sudo apt-get remove nginx worked and now apache2 can start.02:12
ubuntuaddictedthat was just weird02:13
akWhat i was trying so long to do  was to connect to an open wifi on channel 11(succeded) , create an AP on the same channel (succeded) and connect throught my laptop to servers AP(failed).I ll keep trying then.Thanks for your time :D02:13
sylphieak \ maybe ios you had a second wifi02:13
sylphieak \ maybe if you had a second wifi  ...02:14
igor_so the windows drive stays virgin?02:14
vifanqWhy ssh X11 forwarding might fail after a while? I ssh to ubuntu box from OSX. Running x11 app on ubuntu correctly forwards to OSX. But after like 1 hour, it reports "cannot open dispaly" error02:14
sylphieigor_ \ yes02:14
igor_grub loader goes on the linux drive by default?02:14
sylphieigor_ \ yes, if you config it that way02:15
akunfortunatelly sylphie thats not an option for now,but yeah i guess it would be easyer that way02:15
igor_ok. so it requires some config?02:15
dr_willisigor_:sometimes the unstaller may default to the wrong hd. so always double check it02:15
jgspratthow can I fix dhcpd?02:15
sylphieigor_ \ what you would do is select the boot drive in the computer's system bios02:16
dr_willisi put grub on my ubuntu hd.02:16
igor_ok. so linux drive first with grub loader on it, the grub loader would giver the option of 2 OS's?02:17
sylphiegyre007 has a lot of peer problems, two nights running02:17
sylphieigor_ \ that is one way to do it02:18
igor_ok.  i run linux and 2 windows OS's off one drive what is bad about it?02:18
sylphieigor_ \ windows doesn't like to share02:19
escottigor_, nothing is wrong with that02:20
igor_yea. i had to re-install grub after i put W7 on it.02:20
sylphieigor_ \ and sometimes any linux makes mistakes that can effect everything on the drive02:20
jgsprattDoes anyone have a workign dhcpd server on ubuntu?02:20
igor_ is it common?02:20
Mathrys83sylphie neither does ubuntu apparently i live upgraded to 12.04 and lost my other partitions some how, i can occasionly see my other windows drive, but have lost the ability to boot into windows or linuxmint02:20
jgsprattDoes anyone have a working DHCPD on any version of Linux at all ever?02:21
sylphieigor_ \ see, that's why two drive are better than sharing02:21
igor_i would like second drive myself. i was thinking of a ssd for speed.  but know i hear bad things about them..02:22
blkadderYes all that speed can be dangerous...02:23
Mathrys83when i do sudo apt-get install grub it wants to remove this "grub-gfxpayload-lists grub-pc grub2-common" is this ok02:23
TheLordOfTimeMathrys83, sudo apt-get install grub202:23
TheLordOfTimenot grub02:24
blkadderigor_: Seriously most ssds are fine. I have a couple and they work great.02:24
TheLordOfTimegrub is legacy grub, you want to use grub202:24
jgsprattHow can I tell what config file my dhcpd is trying to use>?02:24
=== halloween- is now known as halloween
Mathrys83well no removal request that time02:24
igor_they are expensive.  what size would be good for linux install?02:24
Tex_Nickigor : i've probably missed some of your issues, as i understand it though you would like to provide safe easy dual system ... one method i use is ... with 2 drives ... install windows on one drive ... then ubuntu on another drive ... make sure grub goes on 2nd drive ... that way either drive will boot by itself if other drive is removed  ... because ubuntu doesn't overwrite mbr on windoze drive02:25
blkadderigor_: True but prices have dropped pretty dramatically.02:25
limpchi. how do i install php 5.4.10 on ubuntu? the current version included in the ubuntu repos is 5.4.6 and has serious bugs02:25
Mathrys83how do i load grub2, grub2 says its missing grib02:26
sylphielimpc \ go to the php site, d/l your chosen source code, then build it02:26
igor_if i have ubuntu drive boot first with grub loader will it give me the option in grub loader to bott either OS?02:26
limpcive tried compiling php 5.4.10 manually but it keeps failing on not finding libXpm.so, but I do have it and point to it.02:26
TheLordOfTimelimpc, sudo apt-get build-dep php5 first02:27
TheLordOfTimelimpc, first do `sudo apt-get build-dep php5`02:27
TheLordOfTimelimpc, you need the build dependencies for php5, afaik they're the same between 5.3.x and 5.4.x02:27
limpcTheLordOfTime: thanks02:27
TheLordOfTimedon't include the ` characters thouhg when you run that02:27
limpcis there a site with these instructions?02:27

dr_willisGreat thing about windows 8 - i dont use it.. so people cant come to me at work  asking for support help.04:08
Gyro54Thanks again for your help.04:08
tekkbuzzI used to build windoze computers, but I gave up for the reasons dr_willis mentioned.04:09
tripelb So kunji you were saying that the 11.04 should install anyway? OK next, can I split up the weindoiws partition? I did a defrag sand OTG looks liker there is ASN immovable file far along in the partition.04:09
Gyro54The King: I have had it happen at the very end of the install but all went fine.04:09
Gyro54The problem with converting friends to Ubuntu is that you create a full time unpaid job for yourself04:11
TheKingGyro54: It's the very beginning for me.04:11
TheKingmight try 12.04 instead of 12.1004:11

Gyro54TheKing: Ubuntu should work then04:17
Tex_Nickkunji : i left for a bit ... just came back and saw you posting ... scrolled up ... looks like you might have isolated the problem to flash ?04:18
noirois there a java channel which is good on this or another server?04:20
Gyro54TheKing: There is other install options if you hit F4 I think. Maybe some of the experts here will confirm04:22
kunjiTex_Nick: Probably, but I can't tell 100% for certain, as I haven't had the issue reoccur on starting flash again, so I haven't been able to see it killing flash always fixes it.04:22
kunji*if not it04:23
Tex_Nicknoiro : http://irc.netsplit.de/chat/java.php04:23
TheKingGyro54: It's an old Inspiron. I think I may need to use Lubuntu.04:23
Tex_Nickkunji : i'm running an amd apu 3 core ... that has happened to me on more than one occasion ... one core goes to 100% usage04:25
kunjitripelb: Yeah, without the network connection, it will install anyway, I believe it just asks to confirm that you want to install it without having the connection and then moves on.  It won't be able to install update during the installation that way though, so you should install updates first thing once it is connected.04:25
Tex_Nickkunji : killing flash cures it04:26
=== cptmashek is now known as tenach
kunjiTex_Nick: The 100% usage isn't what's worrying me, that I've seen, but that the screens go blank, like if your power settings were set to blank the screen after 1 minute of inactivity, only my setting are set quite explicitly so they should always stay on.04:27
Gyro54TheKing: I know other wont agree but I would go Xubuntu. It works fine on that type of machine.04:28
Tex_Nickkunji : strange that only one core goes wild, cause it has seemed that load balancing on this apu has been rather symetrical for normal operation04:28
kunjiTex_Nick: And I only see that usage when the screens are off like that, I would liken it to a malware that is trying to hide it's compute from you by doing when your screens are supposedly off.04:28
kunjiYeah, I mean, I don't have one core spike like that if I say, play a 1080p flash video.04:29
Hilikusis there any way to create UDF dvds in brasero? the documentation sucks04:30
Tex_Nickkunji : yeah your experience is a bit different than mine ... no screen blank here ???04:30
TheKingGyro54: Thanks. I have a friend who was kind of iffy about xubuntu. So that helps a lot04:31
kunjiTex_Nick: Right, I mean, sure I've had plenty of problems with flash running up cpu, but I didn't think it would be flash for this because of the conditions the spike occurs under, and that those conditions shouldn't be happening to begin with.04:31
Gyro54TheKing: I use it my slow machines and have not had any problem with it. Some report it is not as fast as Lubuntu which may be the case.04:34
kunjiAll Setting -> Brightness and Lock: The Turn screen off when inactive for: setting is set to Never, and All Settings -> Power: The Suspend when inactive for setting is set to Don't suspend.  Is there anything I might be missing with regard to that?  It was turning of the screen after roughly one minute and one core would go to 100%, killing flash stopped that from happening, I'm a bit puzzled.  So, I'll let you guys know what happens with t04:34
TheKingGyro54: I think the speed comes with a sacrifice in some functionality04:35
TheKingI would prefer xubuntu over lubuntu if it works04:35
Gyro54TheKing: The compaint was that the latest XFCE was not as good as the previous version but I think it has more bells and whistles.04:36
Tex_Nickkunji : i download a lot of youTube videos though ( flv ) they play fine with VLC off the hdd ... tis only flash content thru firefox that causes the problem here04:36
TheKingI haven't used linux enough lately to notice if the new version is worse/better04:37
Gyro54TheKing: Good luck with it.04:39
kunjiTex_Nick: That's just the thing though, when the computer is active, say, when I'm watching a flash video, there are no problems with it on this machine, a single core is not spiking, it's not turning off the screen while the video is rolling, it's acting just as it would if I had that setting for turning off the screen on one minute (with the exception that the core spikes at that time, but who knows, maybe that is normal when the screen i04:39
Tex_Nickkunji : it's a very intermittent problem for me though ... happens rarely ... if it were a regular problen i would probably run a packet sniffer to check activity when it happens04:40
kunjiTex_Nick: Yeah, if you wanted to avoid using flash, you use youtube-dl to get them down to your HD, and more places are using HTML5 video these days.04:40
martindholmesHi all. I'm having problems with rsync, caused by using the 3.0.7 client against a server running 3.0.8. I'm on Lucid and not ready to upgrade, so I'd like to build rsync 3.0.8 or 3.0.9 on Lucid. Does anyone have any experience with this?04:40
kunjiTex_Nick: The problem you have sounds different from this one though, I have had the problem that you do on other machines, for instance, my other desktop right next to me has precisely those symptoms and I just kill flash when it happens.04:41
Tex_Nickkunji : i'm inclined to agree ... only similarity might be the evil flash as Dr_willis has pointed out in the past :)04:43
sk8trixsup, to new the sever04:44

Modernmythwant to make sure I dont break anything.04:57
kunjiModernmyth: Hmm, if it is being used, or if it is actually listed as a dependency by another package?  The later can be done using dpkg I believe, though my memory fails me on what the command would be, maybe read the dpkg manual?04:59
SierraARDo believe I'd got it. Will have to check on my next reboot05:01
kunjiModernmyth: A package could make use of another, but not actually need it, or some such, due to manual configuration (like maybe some php code on a server needs to use curl, but curl is not actually needed by the php packages).05:02

OnVarlogidot: (I ended up changing to Gnome and then Xmonad, though)05:12
kunjixob: Oh, you were asking about HD movies, that depends mostly on what hardware you're running Ubuntu on, not as much on which desktop manager, but if your hardware strains playing HD, then you would be best off with Lubuntu in my opinion.05:12
mysteriousdarrenxob: I agree with kunji05:13

tekkbuzzdr_willis: whatever it's called it's why I left Unity behind.05:47
dr_willisand its fairly easy to disable05:47
kunjidr_willis: that's not a feature :P05:47
dr_willisand can even be disabled on a per-app basis05:47
kunjiYeah, remember to do that extra bit for disabling it for firefox as well05:48
dr_willisi belive the global menu also  integerates with the HUD feature05:48
dr_williswhich is one off the most overlooked and coolest features of unity05:48
Sgt_Shultzmac have docks, because they would make a good boat anchor if you filled them with cement ?05:49
dr_williswindowmaker hs a Warf05:49
dr_willishas a warf05:49
kunjiwindowmaker?  never heard of it05:49

ubottuPackage windowmaker does not exist in quantal05:50
tekkbuzzcan u elaborate on integerates with the HUD?05:50
dr_willishmm. wonder what the  package name is now a days05:50
dr_willis!find wmaker05:50
ubottuFound: fookb-wmaker, wmaker, wmaker-common, wmaker-data, wmaker-dbg05:50
dr_willis!info wmaker05:50
ubottuwmaker (source: wmaker): NeXTSTEP-like window manager for X. In component universe, is optional. Version 0.95.3-2ubuntu1 (quantal), package size 416 kB, installed size 1077 kB05:50
dr_williswmaker has some really neat features. but its a bit on the old skool side of things. ;)05:50
dr_willisa great many other window managers support the windowmaker 'warf' docklets. which are mini appps that run in the dock05:51
tekkbuzzI used to like the wmaker on my Fedora box, but haven't used it in a while.05:52
kunjidr_willis: Hmm, the look reminds me Haiku05:52
dr_willisnot like BeOS/Haiku at all. ;)05:52
dr_willismore like NextStep - but no one rembers that one either.. heh..05:53
tekkbuzzI do.. heh.05:53
dr_williswmaker was supposed to have some support libs/features to make  cross platform apps with os-x easier also  i recall.. but i dont code. so i dont recall the details05:53
kunjihttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Wmaker-0.80.2.png  well, the right click menu like that is what was looking similar.05:53
dr_willisbeos had some really really neat features.. ;)05:54
bsmith093how do i recursively grep for any line that has http:// in it, and return those lines to a file?05:54
dr_willisbut the gui wasent really much of them. but Unity is gaining some similer features05:54
kunjidr_willis: That's what I've heard, I've messed with the Haiku alpha's some, I'll probably look into it more if they finish it.05:55
Tex_Nickdr_willis ... Jobs is remembered by a few of us ;p-)05:55
Sgt_Shultzthose who pay the bills ?05:55
=== Tem^ is now known as KaiSforza
dr_willisgrep has a recursive opion? -R  perhaps...    grep -R pattern directory > hits.txt05:56
dr_williskunji:  i doubt if haiku ever gets finished. ;)05:56
kunjiOne can hope05:56
orbyou can do grep */dir05:58
bsmith093dr_willis: I cat-ed all the files i needed to search into nice large chunks of text, now i just want to find and save to a file, every single line that has http:// in it, this is a rare thing for these files, and i can always sort the results later05:58
dr_willisso you  dont really need recursive searching of dirs...05:58
dr_willisgrep pattern file  > output.txt05:59
dr_willisor am i backwards.. ;)05:59
tekkbuzzbsmith093: cat file* | grep -r http:// > file05:59
orbare you wanting to have http start a new line?05:59
orbor trigger the start of a new line so the output will have http all along the left side?06:00
bsmith093orb yes, to the new line, each on its own line06:00
dr_williseach hit will be on its own line...06:00
cubhow do i get the time panel on the bottom of the screen on unity06:01
dr_williswont it. ;) it echos  the line it found.06:01
Sgt_Shultzmaybe a doing a "find", then "piping" to a "grep"06:01
orbi believe you'll want to replace http with \nhttp06:01
orbusing a sed command.06:01
dr_williscub short answer - you  dont.  if you want a dock down there. you can use differnt docks for a panel06:01
bsmith093grep http:// * >> links this command works brilliantly , but one more thing, how do i get grep to not print the filenames?06:01
dr_willisgrep it again :) heh .. thats overkill06:02
dr_willisgrep has an option for that i  belive06:02
bsmith093actually not a huge deal, but thanks06:02
orbso pipe your output from the grepping through this: sed 's/http/\nhttp/g'06:02
bsmith093one thing though, will grep complain if i use it recursively and there are spaces in the filename06:03
dr_willisspaces in filenames are often a bother.06:03
dr_willisthis is one would use find, or xargs often06:03
shortstraw8This might be a forum question but does anyone use aptitude for installing pkgs? if so is it really that much better?06:03

kunjiJust as Ubuntu is built on Debian, somehow I don't think the Debian folks get bothered by very many Ubuntu support questions.06:10
Tex_Nickcub : unity just doesn't support placing the clock at the bottem of the screen ... you might look at cairo-dock desktop enviornment ... it might give you a clock down there06:10
cubamazingly im able to run a nice looking gui on here .... cant run win7 or 8 but can run this heh06:10
cubcairo-dock.. ok06:10
dr_willisI imagine #debian  refers all ubuntu questions here. ;)06:10
kunjicub: or cairo-clock, I missed the beginning of that conversation though06:11
tekkbuzzdr_willis: http://www.linuxmint.com/about.php , based on "Based on Debian and Ubuntu"06:11
kunjidr_willis: I'm sure they do, I just don't think they get very many of them, they're probably all asking here already06:12
dr_willistekkbuzz:  yes.  its based on.. tht does not make it 'ubuntu'06:12
TheLordOfTimetekkbuzz, mint is not a supported derivative of ubuntu.  It may be based on ubuntu but its not Ubuntu.  Just like Ubuntu is based off of Debian, but is not Debian.06:12
dr_willisPuppylinux has a very radical   disrto that uses ubuntu repos... its not supported here either. ;)06:12
kunjitekkbuzz: After all, this isn't "Debian Ubuntu"06:13
dr_willisneither is the 1000+ other ubuntu variants06:13
dr_willisLubuntu,kubuntu,xubuntu,ubuntu, and i think 1 or 2 ithers are consuiderd official06:13
kunjiIf you can't get it from ubuntu.com I'm pretty sure support doesn't come from here.06:14
tekkbuzzI Never said it was supported here, I was merely making a sugestion for someone having a problem learning and Mint is easy and the apps all install to it just fine.06:14
dr_willisYou called it 'ubuntu mint' and  thats incorrect.06:14

karmakosmikkHello, how to install tar.gz? I am trying to run dwarf fortress06:16
tekkbuzzand minux based on unix06:16
dr_williskarmakosmikk:  normally you extract the files and look at the extrated files06:16
dr_willisthere shold be a readme, and perhaps some executables to run06:17
kunjitekkbuzz: That's another can of worms, that's a different meaning of based on, Linux is actually part of Ubuntu, now you're talking the foundation meaning of base instead of the derivative work sort of meaning.06:17
kunjitekkbuzz: Also, don't you mean minix?  The Tannenbaum one, or is this something else I haven't heard of.06:18
dr_williskarmakosmikk:  that a humble bundle game?06:18
tekkbuzzI was only trying to help cub, get a hold on Linux. Want me to say sorry, im sorry for saying Mint.06:18
karmakosmikkno, it is free06:18
karmakosmikkin their netsite06:18
dr_williskarmakosmikk:  normal method if its precompiled. extract files to a directory, cd to the dir.. run the game06:19
kunjitekkbuzz: Nah, an apology isn't necessary, we know you were trying to help, it's just that what you were saying wasn't really correct so we wanted to make sure it was ironed out, all clear.06:19
diverdudeHello, I have a directory with around 800.000 images. Whenever i do eog /path/to/image/in/imagedir.png it takes a long time to open. Could that be due to the large amount of images in the directory?06:20
dr_willisdiverdude:  could be its generting some previews or somthing06:20
kunjidiverdude: Possible, but more likely, how big is the png?06:20
diverdudekunji, 2.3MB06:21
kunjidiverdude: If  you move one to a different directory, does it take just as long to open?06:21
diverdudekunji, ah good idea06:21
diverdudekunji, no its way faster06:22
diverdudein different dir06:22
kunjidiverdude: Well, then I guess it does have something to do with it, I guess I just thought finding the file would have been faster.06:22
diverdudemy images are named "image[somenumber].png", like: "image1292939.png".  Is there an easy way to copy all images image[somenumber].png to image[somelargernumber].png to a dir?06:24
dr_willisdiverdude:  theres numerout bulk rename tools -    i often use qmv, for a cli tool. but its a bit overkill for that06:25

dr_willisdiverdude:   you wanted to change the name form what i saw06:26
diverdudedr_willis, no i want to copy X images to another directory06:26
dr_willisimage9somenumber0.png to image(somebiggerniumber).  you mean amove RANGE  of files06:27
diverdudedr_willis, copy all images in the range image[somenumber].png to image[somelargernumber].png to another directory06:27
dr_willisbash supports regular exporessions for that06:27
dr_willistest regular expressions with echo first.. and if you do to  many at a time. you can fill up the bash command buffer.06:28
dr_willishow large a range?06:28
dr_willisit may be better to use a loop.06:28
diverdudedr_willis, hmm not so many. maybe 10-20 is ok06:29
cubone more q06:29
dr_willisid just cheat and use mc. and move them over ;)06:29
cubis there any way to get some scrollbars to always show, instead of me having to hoover my mouse over where the scroll thingy is06:29
cubfor the actual scale t show06:29
dr_williscub heres a setting to have the scrollbars always show.. but i cant recall its name06:30
cubok so there is a setting06:30
cublet me check for it06:30
dr_willisthe omgubuntu or webupd8 site have a lot of tweaking guides06:30

dr_willisim so used to scrollbars now - i dont even notice them gone06:31
bsmith093dr_willis: does grep alter files, or just search through them?06:31
dr_willisgrep does not alter files..06:31
bsmith093k thanks06:31
dr_willisI recall a  'gres' script/command  that could do grep and replacements in files... but havent seen that in ages06:31
tekkbuzzcub: there's alot of extra packages out there to tweak unity because some people think it's awkward.06:31
dr_willissed/awk are normally used to alter files06:32
cubno kidding06:32
cubi cant find the screen saver setting either06:32
dr_williscub gnome basically has gotten rid of screen savers. ;) it just blanks..06:33
dr_willisthe settings tool has a serch box i belive06:33
tripelbi heard there is an ubuntu without unity called mint. if so i wpuld like it. but cam o.use rwg06:33
cubthats pretty messed up gee06:33
cubwhat were the developers thinking!06:33
dr_williscub what? theres not really been much in the screensaver area for ages....06:33
dr_willisif you want fancy screensavers check out the xscreensavers package06:34
cubpretty soon they are going to remove terminal too...06:34
dr_willisgnome hasent really had any actual 'settings' tool to do more then just select a screen saver for years06:34
cubnot to go off topic, and im not a fan of linux in particular but honestly, no offense to anyone, it seems they are making this more and more like windows or mac...06:34
tripelbi heard there is an ubuntu without unity called mint. if so i would like it. but can I use normal ubuntu with gnome 2 ??r06:34
kunjitripelb: that's not an Ubuntu, we talked about that just recently06:35
Tex_Nickdiverdude : for bash specefic help you might try #bash06:35
dr_williscub they are trying to make it where the common people can use it? wow. ;)06:35
cublike for basic computer users ... colorful , bright, full of graphics, but annoying for us old schoolers06:35
cubdr_willis, seems like it06:35
dr_willisthe old skool stuff is still there06:35
kunjitripelb: But Lubuntu, Xubuntu, and Kubuntu are not using Unity as far as I know06:35
cubi could use kde, but kde is slow06:35
dr_willisYou could use Lubuntu if you want old skool06:35
cubwell guess i'll google how to enable the scroll button06:35
kunjiLXDE is not slow06:35
kunjiNor is XFCE06:36
karmakosmikkhow much actually is the speed difference between xubu and lubu?06:36
kunjiOr you could just install your own window manager06:36
karmakosmikki have 1 gig netbook and now running lubuntu06:36
dr_williskarmakosmikk:  i saw some benchmarks of the 4 desktops  a year+ ago.. its often more about resources used then 'speed' wiich is a little hard to measure06:36
karmakosmikkah ok06:37
dr_willislubuntu definatyyly used the least resources06:37
kunjikarmakosmikk: I'm sure you can find some metrics if you google a bit, LXDE I think is lightest on the RAM use06:37
karmakosmikkyes it is totally light06:37
tripelbkunji i am sorry i was not here for that conversation. can you sum it.. mint not Ubuntu ...06:37
dr_willisxfce and gnome-2 were close to the same. with xfce being a little lower06:37
dr_willisive not seen any benchmarks for 12.+ releases06:38
karmakosmikki fell love in crunchbang but it does not seem to recognize my mobile network06:38
kunjitripelb: Mint is derived from Ubuntu in the way that Ubuntu is derived from Debian, it is different in many ways and is not done by the same people.06:38
tripelbi met ubuntu 606:38
Tex_Nickcub : guess it's a matter of perspective ... i've been thinking for the past year that windoze is getting more like ubuntu ;-)06:38
dr_willisyou can install openbox on ubuntu and havce the basics of crunchbang ;)06:38
cubis the scroll thign called "overlays"?06:38
dr_williscub sounds right.06:39
cubokay well i changed it i think06:39
karmakosmikkdoes openbox install mess anyway system? can i for example install openbox in lubuntu for my netbook06:39

wald0nobody has never installed ubuntu in the hard disk ?07:11

dr_willisits possible its saying 'its now safe to power off the pc' under the splash screen that you cant see07:54
dr_williskunji:  aparently07:55
mechelle69i can set them to something new but they have to be replace...boot screen choices: file browser add boot option, file browser del boot option secure bood (disabled), load legacy option rom (endabled) boot option #1 UEFI OS, boot option #2 UEFI: IP4 realteck PCI GBE Family Controller and the last option is IP607:55
kunjidr_willis: Those are usually to prevent tampering, so resetting via the bios isn't going to work, she'll have to open it up and clear the CMOS, not sure if laptops always provide the pins for that, so it might be necessary to remove the little watch style battery to do so.07:56
dr_willismechelle69:  somehow you set it to boot from the cdrom. #107:56
BlkrdoFidel: the standard one in ubuntu from the top panel07:56
fidelBlkrdo: so using unity i assume?07:56
BlkrdoFidel: ya07:56
BlkrdoFidel: do you think syslog will help07:57
dr_williskunji:  aparently she set it from some utilty dell put on the thing..   but its not clear on what all has been done to it07:57
kunjidr_willis: Ah, if she was able to change that, then it's not the bios password that was set, but I think booting from cdrom as first priority is normally the default.07:57
kunjidr_willis: Hmm, should still happen after the bios though, so can't she get to a liveCD environment then?07:58
mechelle69ok i had the set up locked so that is now unlocked i don't know what option is the cd rom...itcan i add that as an option07:58
dr_willismechelle69:  using the bios menus or that F12 key you should be able to set the cd to be the first bootable device.07:59
dr_willisthere may be some pull down menus, or places to click to change the boot order08:00
dr_willisyou will most likely want to order to be #1 cdrom #2 uefi OS08:00
mechelle69here are my choices to set order...cd/dvd drive, network, hard drive, usb storage device, diskette drive...and that is not the current order08:02

icerootdo we have any working activesync clients in ubuntu for reading/sending mails on exchange 2010 which has only OWA+activesync enabled? evolution, kontact and thunderbird are not supporting activesync as it seems09:22

rigois the msata interface just like the slim dvd interface?09:28
dr_willismsata is like a ssd on a memory chip sized package i thought.. no idea what a slimdvd interface is..09:28
alimjdr_willis: You are right. rigo: More info: http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/msata-ssd-flash,2948.html09:31
dr_willisalimj:  intel has some little desktop box comming out thsat uses them.09:32
rigogr8 only because the msata->sata converter costs 20euro and a slimdvdcable about 1.20 euro :D09:32
atlefi have one on my mainboard09:32
alimjdr_willis: I heard about them. Introduced in CES09:32
dr_willisstill no idea what a slimdvd is.. unless its some ultrabook spec09:33
alimjdr_willis: Slim DVDs are for notebooks09:34

rigoim looking for the cheapest and fastest quiet storage.09:34
dr_willisso i dont see how a slimddvd cablee would work for a msata  thing. ;)09:34
alimjrigo: Look into Tomshardware best SSD for money articles09:34
rigosystem is about max. 10 gib inclusive swap. of corse i can put the swap on my hdd too. so an 8gib would be more than enough.09:34
TheGreyo/ I have a blank disk and a RAID 1 setup with: md0 (swap), md1 (/) and md2 (home). I want to know how to A) Format my disk to accept data (i.e. setup probably the whole disk as ext4) B) rsync the files for the purposes of a backup. Much love and thanks..Grey09:35
alimjRigo: Also check this article  (If you can use normal 2.5" SSDs).09:36
rigodo u have any suggestions other than msata 16gib mini-drive?09:36
qwerkusIT WORKS! Yuhuuu. In cased anyone wonders: it was a graphic problem. Fglrx never again. Solve by purging the driver and reinstalling the xorg.server. Strange part is that I had to run a grub-update via livecd to get it to work again ?!09:36
benkaiserI am on 12.04 and I have to click on the desktop for any keyboard shortcuts (e.g. switching workspaces) to work after closing an application. Anyone know what could be causing this?09:36
dr_willisbenkaiser:  try  makign a new user - see if it afffects them also09:37
rigoi wouldnt like to spend more than 20euro on it.09:37
alimjrigo: In that case, you may use some small industrial SATA devices for IPCs09:37
rigoqwerkus: i installed this way and it'ts almost just fine: http://youresuchageek.blogspot.fr/2012/06/xbmc-install-and-config-howto-for-linux.html09:38
rigoi have my sys right now on my hdd but its "damn" noisy... i wouldnt like to hear that awful hdd-load-sound.. :D09:40
rigoi have an usb3.0 interface, but dont have any usb3.0device.09:41
Tex_Nickrigo : don't know what transfer rate you need ... but as far as cheap ... i've bought 4 32 GB microSMB cards with usb adapters in the past year for about $18 US ... i love them09:42
rigou mean microSD?09:43
rigousb2.0 is a bit slow for a whole ubuntu system i think.09:43
Tex_Nickrigo : typo ... yeah :)09:43
=== Kneferilis_ is now known as Kneferilis
rigoso pci-e or sata interface..09:45
icerootrigo: usb2.0 is able to transfer 60MByte/s which is fine for ubuntu. i am running different systems on a usb2.0 port (raspbian with xbmc, ubuntu with lxde desktop) its ok09:45
alimjRigo: I once worked with such a device for one IPC: http://ec.transcendusa.com/product/product_memory.asp?Cid=136 ; however, they are useful for Industrial PCs as the cost /MB is too high09:45
rigoim not sure that this would be enough Verbatim USB 8 GB Store 'n' Go V3 USB 3.009:45
rigothanks for the link! yep its a bit expensive.09:46
Tex_Nickrigo : i'm using one of them as a portable ubuntu boot ... to repair windoze box's ... it runs fast enough ... only thing i worry about is loosing it, it's so small :-)09:46
BorgsoGoing to put up a new home-fileserver, been doing it oldschool (ext3 or MD-raid) before but i see alot talk about ZFS. Is this something recomended as alternative to md-softraid?09:46
alimjRigo: USBs are cheaper. Yet they have less MTBF. They are also to slooow09:46
rigothe 8 gib usb3.0 looks the best solution now....09:47
rigoBUT if i get a 32gib msata drive for 20 it would be enough for me. but im not sure about that custom interface....09:47
Tex_Nickrigo : can't give you a good UK resource to purchace ... but in US www.newegg.com has great selection and price ... shipping might be BAD for you though :(09:48
rigoi only need the string what i have to search for :) i always find the cheapest way ;)09:48
cubhow do i change the cursor color in ubuntu 12.0409:49
rigohowever the msata converter is 16euro and the drive is 20 so its 36 together. for this price i can get a standard 64gib ssd vertex3..09:49
cubi cant find anything in the settings09:49
dr_williscub you mean the mouse pointer?09:50
dr_willisive seen it done with some cursor themes.. but the process seems flakey09:51
Tex_Nickrigo : isn't that a kick in the rear ... drives me crazy ... stuff like that :)09:51
dr_willisyou may want to check askubuntu.com see if they got  good guide09:51

dr_williscub it wasent ment to be09:56
cubwhat wasnt09:56
rigothanks checkin checkin' but like i saied i dont need a store, i need a product what is the cheapest way.09:56

cubwell i found something09:57
cubsaid to use update-alternatives09:57

rigoX log09:57
szxit doesn't seem to crash09:57

histoBrittany: that's odd mine works with out a problem.13:03
Brittanydepends on the type of power management.13:03
BrittanyBasic power management comes standard in system settings of Ubuntu.13:03
histoBrittany: it's usually pretty trivial task but when flash is involved who knows.13:04
BrittanyBut if you're looking to do some 'fine tuning' you would look for alternate software packages.13:04

KylieBrooksMonkeyDust: how15:32
mathiThinkT510: please advice me15:32
DataMatrixKyleBrooks: so if raid fails and mount of partition fails than the system should start with pre-backup files working fine15:32
ThinkT510mathi: try both and see15:32
ThinkT510mathi: lxde will likely be more responsive but you won't know by how much until you try15:32
KylieBrooksDataMatrix: sounds like it. yes.15:33

ThinkT510assenga: use the repos15:33
ThinkT510assenga: you should install things from websites15:33

mathiThinkT510: it's a server, i don't need interface15:35
apgAnybody can answer this question http://askubuntu.com/q/244637/124187 ? help15:35
ThinkT510mathi: then why are you asking about desktop environments?15:35
applejack_I would love to kindly ask how I could find out what graphic card I have? lspci told me that I got "Nvidia Corporation Devide 1055". I am not quite sure if I am satisfied with this information15:36
mathiThinkT510: there is no Lubuntu server15:36
ThinkT510mathi: ubuntu is the same underneathe15:36
ThinkT510mathi: use ubuntu server15:36
adamkapplejack_: Google :-)  1055 is the PCI ID.15:36
mathiThinkT510: it is ok to install it on small computers ?15:36
billhookmanhi, anybody know why I cannot access to software center? It does not load anything to select. synaptic works ok. I use Lubuntu15:37
ThinkT510mathi: of course15:37
applejack_Oh! Thank you adamk :)15:37
adamkapplejack_: http://us.download.nvidia.com/XFree86/Linux-x86_64/304.43/README/supportedchips.html15:37
mathiThinkT510: it seems that only interface is what takes resources15:37
DataMatrixapg: some process is using files on your home dir or you have mounted a partition on a subdirectory of home folder15:37
ThinkT510mathi: as usual15:38
ThinkT510mathi: a cli environment is always going to be lighter than any desktop15:38
apgDataMatrix: how can I know a program that has not quitted to the time my system almost poweroff?15:39
mathiThinkT510: but Lubuntu makes not only UI lighter, but also limit the default applications.15:39
ThinkT510mathi: you said you don't want a desktop15:39
AngryBirdhlw guys, i've installed win 7 .. i want to know how to configure firewall on windows 715:40

ThinkT510mathi: server doesn't have a gui at all, i don't understand what you are getting at15:40
AngryBirdsaale kutte15:41
mathiThinkT510: yea i know, but Lubuntu is not only about UI, it also limits the default applications started that are resource-consuming for example15:41

AngryBird /join ##windows15:42
wachpwnskiIf I download ubuntu server, is that a good way to go about installing a minimal desktop environment?15:42
ThinkT510mathi: the default apps for the server are different too, no gui apps at all so what you say is a moot point15:42
apgDatamatrix: I do not mount any partition to any subdirectory of my home folder. So, I guess, there is a program using a file that prevent my  home folder from cleanly unmounted.15:42
MonkeyDustwachpwnski  there's alos mini ubuntu, it's also an installer, liker ubuntu-server15:43
mathiThinkT510: thank you for your input, i will install ubuntu server15:43
ThinkT510!mini | wachpwnski15:43
ubottuwachpwnski: The Minimal CD image is very small in size, and it downloads most packages from the Internet during installation, allowing you to select only those you want (the installer is like the one on the !Alternate CD). See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/MinimalCD15:43
DataMatrixapg: that is one option, the other is that gnome mounts on .gvfs for flash sticks and etc. and your GUI is not exiting and unmounting those properly (if you use gnome)15:43
wachpwnskiwhat does the server version have?15:44
MonkeyDustwachpwnski  other partitioning, other default apps, no GUI15:45
mathiThinkT510: when I install will I have to choose the type of File System ?15:45
ThinkT510mathi: ext4 is default15:45
apgdatamatrix: do you know the way to make sure which program is not exiting?15:46
DataMatrixapg: login into a root terminal (open terminal then type "sudo -s" without quotes), type: echo -e "lsof -f -X | grep /home > /var/log/shutdown.log" > /etc/rc0.d/S39homeuse15:47
wachpwnskimin is the best way to go then?15:47
calimero_82hey guys15:48
DataMatrixapg: then make the script executable: chmod 0755 /etc/rc0.d/S39homeuse15:48
ThinkT510wachpwnski: unless you have bandwidth issues then yes15:48
DataMatrixand then shutdown. then start your computer and check the file /var/log/shutdown.log15:48
MonkeyDustwachpwnski  "best" depends on what you expect and prefer15:48
craigbass1976jrib, thanks.  How do I know whether the network or samba starts up first?15:48
calimero_82how can i connnect my samsung c3750 via usb on ubu 12.10?15:48
apgdatamatrix: okay, I'll try it now.15:48
DataMatrixapg: I am not currently able to test this, but this is the base concept to log what is using your home just before /etc/rc0.d/S40umountfs -> ../init.d/umountfs start executes15:49
wachpwnskiso mini is like of like the freebsd style ubuntu :D15:49
craigbass1976calimero_82, is it android?  Do you have to tell the phone what mode to connect in first?15:49
wachpwnskiinstall only what is needed, and download and compile what is wanted15:49
calimero_82no it's an old phone15:49

calimero_82samsung kies works with playonlinux?15:59
ThinkT510Azmuth: then you need to describe the issue too15:59
Azmuthi want to install win7 after ubuntu 12.1015:59
Azmuthi don't know how to backup mbr ?15:59
MonkeyDustAzmuth  it's possible, but win7 ruins GRUB, so you'll have to repair it16:00
BluesKajAzmuth, install windows first then ubuntu16:00
AzmuthBluesKaj: i can16:00
Azmuthi can't16:00
mimorAzmuth: have you seen this? https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WindowsDualBoot#Installing_Windows_After_Ubuntu16:01
BluesKajAzmuth,  why ?16:01
seelspeaking of installing, what's the difference between wubi and dual-booting?16:01
BluesKaj!wubi | seel16:01
ubottuseel: Wubi is an Ubuntu installer for Windows users that allows you to install and uninstall Ubuntu like a Windows application, in a simple and safe way. http://wubi-installer.org/support.php and https://wiki.ubuntu.com/WubiGuide for troubleshooting. Please  file bugs at http://launchpad.net/wubi/+filebug. For Ubuntu Oneiric/11.10 http://releases.ubuntu.com/oneiric/wubi.exe16:01
MonkeyDustseel  wubi creates a space inside windows, dual-booting alongside windows16:01
AzmuthBluesKaj: i have lots of software installed on ubuntu and if  i uninstall it then i have to start again...16:02
zellhello how can I on my ubuntu disabled auto calibration of my microphone ?16:02
ThinkT510seel: wubi is a ubuntu installation in a file inside windows (avoid using it if possible)16:02
seelso speed doesn't really factor in or anything, just how it's installed basically16:02
ThinkT510seel: yes16:03
BluesKajAzmuth, so you can install windows beside ubuntu , then use live media ubuntu to reinstall grub16:03
seelThinkT510: well, I'm using wubi atm as I can't install ubuntu on here16:03
AzmuthBluesKaj: that's what i am looking for...16:03
ThinkT510seel: wubi was never meant as a long term solution, more of a testing ground before a proper install16:03
BluesKajseel, wubi isn't a real install , it's afile the runs in windows16:04
xentewhen I log out from my unity session, there are still several processes running. Namely: unity-music-daemon, unity-shopping-daemon, and gvfsd-trash. If I log in again, these processes are duplicated. Does anyone know why these processes won't die unless I explicity kill them?16:04
zellHow can i disable microphone auto-calibration ?16:05
seelI understand that but still have no way (that I know of) to install ubuntu other than that, with little point in doing so in the first place16:05
zell(when i speak using, mumble or any VOIP device, microphone become lower, and people i speak with, can't hear me anymore16:05
ThinkT510seel: a vm is a much better solution16:05
zelli just checked my system configuration16:06
zelland even if I emplify signal16:06
Azmuththanks for help16:06
zellit lows back ...16:06
Azmuthi got my answer16:06
zellany idea ?16:06
boulderdaveFor some reason, even though I'm passing flat=True into values_list(), when I try to append the results to a list, its saying I can only concatenate list (not "ValuesListQuerySet") to list ... what the hek?? http://dpaste.com/882711/16:06
seelso does wubi still allow windows to get something like a virus or any other crap using windows might have happen?16:07
MonkeyDustboulderdave  what are you trying to do?16:07
xenteseel: no, not if you are booting ubuntu in wubi16:07
k1lseel: can you rephrase?16:07
seelI've never done a vm and this laptop's dvd drive is broken so couldn't download an iso but have full install on my desktop16:08
MonkeyDustseel  wubi will get you frustrated, it's a pseudo-install, you'll think ubuntu is no good16:08
k1lseel: you can use a usb stick16:08
xentewubi is a great solution, but bad disk performance16:08
k1lseel: i recommend to avaoid wubi16:08
ThinkT510seel: if wubi has access to your windows partition then yes, files (including viruses) can get transfered to windows16:08
seelok, no clue if it has access to that or not actually16:09
boulderdaveappend the value list to another list16:09
denisnikulinseel: no, any virus from windows won't affect your wubi ubuntu installation16:09
ThinkT510!usb | seel16:09
ubottuseel: For information about installing Ubuntu from USB flash drives, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/FromUSBStick - For a persistent live USB install, see: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/LiveUsbPendrivePersistent16:09
k1lwubi installs a ubuntu into a container into the windows partition. i recommend to do a native ubuntu install on seperate partitions16:09
MonkeyDustboulderdave  in what language? better go to the proper channel16:09
seelI just know my girlfriend mainly prevers windows and I prefer ubuntu full-time now, though my desktop is nice once I can access that via ssh lol16:09
boulderdaveMonkeyDust, ah crap. sorry !  thought i was in #django16:10
boulderdavemy bad!16:10
denisnikulinseel: try ubuntu + windows in virtualbox ;)16:10
seelmuch better performance?16:10
seelvm, I mean?16:10
denisnikulinseel: for linux - yes. if you want desktop os16:10
xentethe problem with wubi is limited to poor disk performance, file system corruption if there is a crash (on both the windows side and linux side) but other than that, it's just fine.  a native install has much better disk performance. other than that, it's just fine16:10
ThinkT510seel: xp in vbox has good performance16:10
=== ryanclancy000 is now known as Guest96916
BaribalHi. I just f### up badly and de- and reinstalled a production MySQL server. Is there any way to recover its data?16:11
denisnikulinagree about xp on vm - very good performance16:11
MonkeyDustxp in virtualbox works nice16:11
k1lxente: as issues here proof its quite common that windows gets corrupted and ubuntu cant start, too.16:11
seelok, well I've never done a vm as said and am running win7 otherwise so is it gonna cost anything?16:11
MonkeyDustxp... the only windows i can love16:11
ThinkT510seel: virtualbox is free and open source16:12
xentekil: you haven't proven that. the corruption is only if someone powers off the machine without going through shutdown16:12
ThinkT510seel: you'd need your own windows install media to make a windows vm16:13
k1lxente: most supporters here dont like wubi because of that problems. they are quite common. thats what i mean. its theoretically a good feature.16:13
seelwindows install media?16:14
ThinkT510seel: your own copy of windows16:14
xentekil: I agree with you on that. I wouldn't recommend it for anyone beyond those who want to evaluate ubuntu. but it's great to get windows friends to try ubuntu with limited risk16:14
ThinkT510seel: with your purchased activation key16:14

seelsorry, I'm a bit confused here16:16

rjagatheHi ...I was using ubuntu 12.04(upgraded often right from 10.10) w/o any problem for long time.But... I tried to upgrade to 12.10.it resulted in a disaster .My system fails to boot.Can anybody help?16:17
ThinkT510seel: seriously, try ubuntu in a vm, go download virtualbox16:17
ThinkT510seel: virtualisation is great16:17
seelI've heard about them but have never done them as I thought you'd have to be in windows and then load up ubuntu or something and didn't want to login to windows16:17
rjagatheHow to download virtual box from win xp. Right now I am chatting from it only?16:18
ThinkT510rjagathe: go to the website16:18

arunkumar413ubuntu not recognising the memory card on my laptop16:18

minasxente, I tried it but it opens and closes instantly16:19
rjagatheThinkT150: which site?16:20
arunkumar413why is ubuntu not recognizing the sd memory card plugged into the memory card slot on my laptop16:20
xenteminas: because once you run that command, it ends and the terminal will exit. perhaps what you want to use is a script with zenity16:21
ThinkT510rjagathe: if you want to download virtualbox then it would make sense to go to the virtualbox website, more help can be found in ##windows16:21

minasxente, works, thanks :)16:24
xenteminas: :)16:24
seelso in a nutshell, I login to win to use ubuntu and can use it like I normally would but when it windows, start a vm and run ubuntu from there as though it's installed whenever I want to use it inside windows, and nothing I do will effect windows/nothing win does will effect ubuntu?16:26
=== dziegler is now known as dziegler_off
seeljust brand new to it is all... but am reading about it now16:26
xenteseel: that's right. you can run several vm's as well, depending on your resources. kinda nifty16:26
BluesKajseel, you may have to enable virtualization in the bios16:28
seeland even though is required to login to windows (grr lol) it's better than wubi though a dual-boot is obviously the best choice other than a full install?16:28
BECarunkumar413, indeed; the max # of "Primary" partition is 4; what u can do is create an "extended" partition which can have as many logical partitions as u wish16:28
arunkumar413decoder_: how to create an extended partition16:28
BluesKajdual boot is a full install , one partition is windows , the other is ubun tu , seel16:29
seelright, was just meaning dual-boot/install over windows16:29
arunkumar413is logical volume bootable16:29

compdocbrentandbutter, just install as normal16:31
BECarunkumar413, first u need to explain more about ur situation16:31
brentandbutterhave it, and im downloading 12.1016:31

xentexangua: they do have users, don't they?16:36
BluesKajsupercomputers aren't in the race , I'm talking about desktop and laptop users16:36
seelwith more and more desktop like distros that are userfriendly yet still provide tools for powerusers when needed and learned, more people would switch I would think16:36

jhutchinsjrr: Depending on how the exchange server is set up, you may be able to access it with a pop or imap mail client; you may be able to access the calendar via an ical protocol, but I don't know of anything but exchange that can use the Contacts info.16:42

ubottuseel: #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!16:42
t5ae4arunkumar413: you should delete the last partition and make that an extended partition16:42
sogeking99bazhang, Okay thanks, do each install a bunch of programs though?16:42
jhutchinssogeking99: There are about a dozen possibilities, see http://freedesktop.org for a full list.16:42
t5ae4arunkumar413: by doing so, you can create logical partitions within16:42
bazhangsogeking99, yes they do16:42
t5ae4arunkumar413: if you need more space, resize other partitions16:43
arunkumar413t5ae4: i shrinked the c drive to create some extra space but i'm not able to create partitions on that16:43
BluesKajarunkumar413, 2 of the primaries are recovery and Windows page file partitions , which you may have to sacrifice iirrc16:43
seelok, well glad I got help here and I appreciate that, will keep that in mind16:43
sogeking99bazhang, would sudo apt-get purge remove the environment and all the programs it downloaded also?16:43
sogeking99thanks jhutchins16:44
jrrjhutchins: in other words, what did adding the account under "Online Accounts" do?16:44
bazhangsogeking99, no it would not16:44

BECBlueEagle, t5ae4: maybe im getting it wrong, but he's trying to install it inside Windows; no need to remove a partition! All he needs is some space on one partition (which obviously he should have)16:44

bazhangsogeking99, the same applies for other desktop environments as well16:45

jhutchinsjrr: Then I have no idea what you've done.16:45
jrralright, thanks16:45
t5ae4arunkumar413: dude.. you should delete one existing partition first ok?16:45
t5ae4arunkumar413: then create a extended partition16:46
arunkumar413t5ae4: but doing so may corrupt my windows 716:46
t5ae4arunkumar413: what's the problem in deleting the last partition16:46
t5ae4arunkumar413: delete a partition which will not affect your current installation16:48

SierraARI'm wanting to create a 250GB partition, then install windows xp on it. I have ubuntu 12.04 already installed, and gparted is saying that if I resize/move the existing partition it can make ubutnu fail to boot17:38
SierraARAny google search results seem to be for existing windows 7 installs, or a blank hard drive17:38

Vivekanandaface a weird problem although I somewhat know what the cause is. My /home suddenly reports disk full although disk usage analyzer adds up to a much lower value. Then I run fsck on boot and things go back to showing 1.5 gigs free. I know my hard drive is failing but what can I do otherwise ??17:59

usr13Mars___: Boot to BIOS and look around.  You might see something dealing with the processor, fan or heat related info.18:00

tripelbOK jhutchins I do have a meg of ram. What I do notice is that this LCD screen cut off the first few columns. I gave away my last CRT monitor. I think I will try a different LCD screen.

JuJuBeeWhat is easiest way to transfer /home from one server to another?18:04
ubuntu-testerVivekananda: because damaged area is on ubuntu pattition and not on xp partition18:04
blkadderJuJuBee: scp it.18:05
Mars___Oh, usr13. It appears my fan ISN'T spinning for some reason..?18:05
Mars___I guess this is a temperature problem then.18:05
Mars___I wasn't able to find any information in my System BIOS about the temperature.18:05
JuJuBeeblkadder: OK, I would need to sudo correct? and how can I preserve perms?18:05
ubuntu-testerVivekananda: you can repartition the drive to cut off bad area from usage. This will require enough free space on other media to move data18:06
JuJuBeeblkadder: I didn't think scp preserved file ownership18:06
blkadderJujuBee: Generally. You can preserver permissions and UID/GID but they will only show up properly if they match on the destination host.18:07
Vivekanandaubuntu-tester: Yep I understand that but then I was just wondering that if the part is damaged then why would fsck show the free 1.5 gigs then go back to being randomly unavailable. But I guess I see the reason is that the drive is failing. :(. does repartition automatically remove a problem ??18:07
ubuntu-testerJuJuBee: or rsync18:07
blkadderJujuBee: You might have better luck with rsync over ssh.18:07
morfeo_81how can se if one library are installed?18:07

nabbletusr13: since it is also responsible for permission maangement19:18
usr13nabblet: Maybe your right, gdm is small19:18
usr13nabblet: I didn't know that...19:19
nabbletusr13: if that does not work i fall back to adding myself to the audio group19:19
usr13nabblet: It's not going to hurt anything to add yourself to audio group19:19
llutzusr13: useradd will fail if the user exists, you need usermod and you don't want to use usermod -G without -a unless you are really sure about what it might break19:19

Corny_If /dev/sda has only one partition, is there difference between specifying /dev/sda or /dev/sda1 as parameter to ddrescue (or whatever)?19:24
bekksmrthg_: sure, it is.19:24
mrthg_problem is that i wouldnt know xD19:24
ubuntu-testermrthg_: exim is also popular19:24
jhutchinsusr13: I think you should make a policy of a) reading the manpage for any command you suggest, and b) trying the commmand yourself before posting it.19:25
usr13Corny_: Yes, it's still gonna be sda119:25
mrthg_exim you say, gonna check it out :P19:25
usr13jhutchins: Good advise19:25
Corny_usr13: Yes as in no difference? O.o19:25
jhutchinsCorny_: You can see what's available by using sudo fdisk -l19:26
jhutchinsCorny_: if sda1 isn't there, it's going to give you an error.19:26
dpurgertCorny_, no /dev/sda1 is the partition.  /dev/sda is the harddrive itself19:26
jhutchinsdpurgert: Some USB devices are accessed directly as the root device.19:27
nabblet_oldwow - gdm is so fat (dependcies)19:27
Corny_Uh.... So when running ddrescue, which one should I specify?19:27
llutzCorny_: sda119:27
djonoi ran clam tk and found 16 threats is there a way i can get more info on the threats19:27
Avenger001I found a solution.19:27
Avenger001Thanks to everyone.19:27
llutzCorny_: makes it easier to mount an image later, as you don't have to use offsets etc.19:28
MonkeyDustdjono  exciting! screenshot please?19:28

usr13nabblet_old: I was afraid of that.19:31
dpurgertelena-IK, whichever one I (you) are most familiar with, as it's easier to help19:31
ubuntu-testerelena-IK: depends on tasks, but gnome 2 will do i guess19:32
jhutchinselena-IK: The idea of unity is to be simple to use and easy to learn; they don't have any learned habits so it really doesn't matter that much.19:32
MonkeyDustelena-IK  is the senior already familiar with a GUI?19:34
nabblet_oldusr13, sound works - i was right19:34
nabblet_oldusr13, gdm fixed me the permssion trouble - but at what price!19:34
MonkeyDustelena-IK  ignore my question19:34
nabblet_oldusr13, i think i will have to find out what of gdm's 1000 deps is responsible for the permissions19:35
nabblet_oldusr13, it's a pitty that gdm installs so much cr*p with it... have a look at the things that come with it -.-19:35

xibalbawhy do the CentOS folks consider Ubuntu a 'toy' ?19:37
dpurgertbecause they can xibalba19:38
nabblet_olddpurgert, i did a minimal install cuz i'mma linux pro - but all i got was pain and agony. then i installed, remebering the same painn from the 12.04 install, that a missing gdm is responsible for a lot of premission troube so i installed it - what i didn't know is that gdm invites the whole unity stuff on my system19:38
MonkeyDustxibalba  part of the OS flame war, i guess19:38
nabblet_olddpurgert, but at least gdm enabled sound for my normal user - before only root had sound19:38

ubuntu-testerexes are not (to linux at least). javascripts can contain browser/flash/reader exploits19:41
nabblet_olddpurgert, in that case i would also kill grub - then i could not boot any onf my OSs19:41

eliezerHi Guys,,,i need to edit this file in order con have my backlight dim working = sudo gedit /etc/default/grub i cant remember wich line is it and the typo,i remember is something with vendor cpi19:42

FRO5Ti always install my distros under /19:42
ubuntu-testerFRO5T: bitter experience?19:43
eliezerand then upgrade grub19:43
dpurgertnabblet_old, you're right --> if you do rm -rf / it'll kill everything under / (the entire OS).  GRUB should be on the MBR, but I think there are still some configs kept in /boot (or somewhere) ...19:43
dpurgertnabblet_old, though to be honest -- when I'm doing an install, I go for formatting the entire disk19:44

BluesKajnabblet_old, is there a reason you aren't using lightdm ?19:48
Coded1Baribal: probably something to do with xargs ;)19:48
escotteliezer, LINUX_DEFAULTS line (the one with quiet splash and root=UUID blah19:48

BaribalThanks, Coded1. :)19:51
escotteliezer, you probably want it on the GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT line. im not sure when the non-default one is used19:51
Coded1Baribal: make sure you check the file though.  If one line has a '/' you might make more problems then the command is worth19:51
eliezerescott, thanks19:52
mbeierl_Baribal, but, do note that will not work for files that contain spaces as the 'for file in ' also uses space as a delimiter, so "My Documents" would attempt to delete My and then Documents19:52
BaribalCoded1, already on it. :) I want to purge everything to do with keystone after a botched devstack deployment, but I don't want to i.e. delete pythons keystone module.19:52

mbeierl_nabblet_old, perhaps silly question, but have you run a ram test?19:53
BaribalUbuntu has indeed become familiar territory for the average Windows user, nabblet_old :)19:53
nabblet_oldmbeierl_, already did19:54
mbeierl_nabblet_old, I've seen random freezes caused by badly seated ram frequently enough19:54
FRO5Tthe ram problems can occur only in some specific situations...19:54
jhutchinsnabblet_old: Could be a hardware problem.19:54

sylphienabblet_old; besides that19:55
Congwhat's the switch to say I don't want extra packages?19:55
jhutchinsnabblet_old: gdm probably needs a certain amount of gnome, but installing all of gnome is probably overkill and bad packaging.19:55
nabblet_oldjhutchins, i think so too19:55
ubuntu-testerCong: which ones?19:56
sylphienabblet_old; does your machine runs other OS's without lockups?19:56
nabblet_oldsylphie, i was not able to do deeper test - and i wont do the now19:56
jhutchinsnabblet_old: I have succeeded in getting things like that fixed by filing bugreports, but you have to know what the actual dependency errors are.19:56
Congubuntu-tester, it goes sometin like --no--dependencies19:56
sylphienabblet_old; I mean does it run ok on windows/dos/whatever?19:57
Congubuntu-tester, I want to install alacarte with out extra packages.19:57
nabblet_oldsylphie, have to test that - it ran well for ubuntu a long time19:57
jhutchinsCong: Theoretically, any of the "extra" packages are required for your target package to run, like code libraries and such.19:58
sylphienabblet_old; that's the simplest way to see if you have a hardware error or whether ubuntu is the problem19:58
jhutchinsCong: Sometimes the packagers aren't very careful about what they include.19:58
nabblet_oldsylphie, jep19:58
jhutchinsCong: I think there may be a "recommends" feature, but I don't know if that's on or off by default.19:59

I am in "Prepare Disk Space".  I hope someone here is interested in helping me.  (Earlier today, computer does not have the hardware for unity. Also GUI on 11.04  display is unstable. 20:28
Guest83282helllo , i ve installed ubuntu without boot loader. how do i install grub legacy using a live usb?20:28
Fanfysylphie - Ahm. Well I counted lines and deleted something and saved. Of course I did copy what I deleted encase it didn't work. But yeah did it and didn't work....if I deleted the right section o.o20:29

madpropstripelb: what options does it show you?20:29
ubuntu-testerztgu: yes, if it worked before and got broken. but if your chip is totally unsupported, dunno. google '<chip> radeon'20:29

syncsyssquidnipples,  thanks@20:30
madpropstripelb: you can also check other lighter options like xubuntu20:30
ubuntu-testerLunar_Lander: uptime, literally ;)20:30

Lunar_Landerand last gives like the most recent ones20:31
ztguubuntu-tester: My graphics are good, but the only problem is a black screen on resume after suspend. In debian wiki http://wiki.debian.org/Suspend . they recommend disabling KMS (kernel mode set) to the specific gpu20:31
sylphieFanfy; ok. then I don't know what to tell you, your only option is to build from source, else use the windows version20:31
ubuntu-testerLunar_Lander: oh sorry, 'since installed' is a bit harder20:31
krzkrzhow does one get the  version of wget>20:31
Lunar_Landerbut from the software-center you can see the day on which the system was installed, right?20:31
tasslehoffI've written a startup script for my server that starts rtorrent in screen. I will put it in /etc/init.d, but which /etc/rc<X> folder should I put it in?20:32
ubuntu-testerztgu: ok try it20:32
tripelbI am stuck. I want to overwrite the Ubuntu 11.04 partition. I am booted from the LiveCD.20:32
tripelbShould I erase the 11.04?20:32
FanfyLol I tried the windows version I can't use it cause it saves to the Windows 7 OS on my harddrive. Then I can't find it...tried that already. And I can't use windows 7 cause it doesn't load on my laptop...20:32
Lunar_Landerand was 12.04 released on April 23rd?20:32
ubuntu-testerkrzkrz: --version20:32
FanfyBut thanks I guess...probably gonna smash my computer since it's not working. I've been trying for over an hour now. Computer hates me I swear...20:33
ztguubuntu-tester: Do you know what it does? I have heard that is the same/similar to booting in nomodeset. do you know if nomodeset is slower than my existing setup?20:33
tripelbDoing also erase the swap?20:33

sylphieFanfy; It's not your computer's fault, it's fault of the programmers at Magic set editor. If they are going to distribute pre-compiled linux binaries, they should test them first20:34
ubuntu-testerztgu: of course i don't. you can always revert it back (to black :). or just boot with nomodeset once and test20:35
escottztgu, nomodeset has nothing to do with speed20:35
Fanfysylphie - and  then they should write the simplest of directions...x.x for people like me. Apparently it works for other people. Just not me...20:35
ztguescott: or performance.20:35
sylphieFanfy; and you could possibly guild it from source with less than five easy console commands20:35
dpurgertFanfy -- what're you trying to do?20:35
escottztgu, correct20:36
Fanfysylphie - Yeah I dunno what that means...lol20:36
dpurgertoh ... build a package/program from source ... yeah -- it can defintiely be easy20:36
Fanfydpurgert - trying to get flippin Magic Set Editor to download lmao20:36
escottztgu, it is a necessary step to move the rendering in kernel which is performance related, but modesetting itself is not a performance thing20:36
ztguescott: what do you mean with: move the rendering in the kernel which is performance related?20:37
sylphiedpurgert; http://magicseteditor.sourceforge.net/ provides either a precompiled linux binary which won't install or source code20:38
dpurgertwell, let's see20:38
FanfyYep and it won't download for me. Sadly. And I need it cause otherwise I have to keep revisiting my library.20:38
ztguescott: nomodeset can't be to good on performance (I think). I have heard that adding the nomodeset parameter instructs the kernel to not load video drivers and use BIOS modes instead until X is loaded.20:38
dpurgertthe "precompiled binary" seems to be a tgz file ... gimme 5 minutes to get it20:39
escottztgu, if the kernel doesn't modeset then the kernel doesn't know the state of the card so it cannot manage buffers on behalf of applications. with the modesetting in kernel then the kernel can directly manage buffers which allows applications to simply tell the kernel to swap the front and back buffer instead of asking another priv'ed process to do the swap on their behalf20:39
Fanfyo.o okay I also found this http://magicseteditor.sourceforge.net/node/1918 but it confuses me even more and didn't help.20:39
LeMikehello :) i got a external usb2vga device but the screen stays empty. can anyone tell me how to setup a very simple xorg.conf that allows 2 creens (dvi and hdmi) + one over usb2vga ?20:39
syncsyssquidnips,    the correct way is http://shiliarr95z.weebly.com/2/post/2011/09/bino-3d-movie-player-on-ubuntu.html20:39
dpurgertI really need a bigger HDD for this...20:40
tasslehoffhm. just a symlink from /etc/rc2.d to my script in /etc/init.d, and I'm done?20:40
FanfyDunno what HDD is...o.o''20:40
Frank_LeachAm looking for help with my new installation of ubuntu 12.10? Loving it but...cant install wireless drivers. On a dell inspiron 152520:41
cjhornjoin #hackers20:41
escottztgu, at present though the only thing that is swapping buffers is the compositor through X so with the current architecture it shouldn't matter that much performance-wise, with wayland it may be different because the compositor may be able to take itself out of the loop (thats my understanding)20:42
dpurgertFanfy, HDD = Hard Disk Drive20:42
syncsyssquidnips,  i was disconnected20:42
squidnipsfigure it out?20:42
Fanfydpurgert - ooh o.o20:42
ioriaFrank_Leach: iwconfig ?20:42
dpurgertFrank_Leach, I'm surprised that you need drivers.  Does the install really not see the wlan card?20:42
Frank_LeachIts surprising alright dpurgent, had same problem with 12.04 but cant remember solution20:43
Sgt_Shultzi know nothing, but why are apple shops full of people wanting thier easy to use pc//phone fixed, walked past 30 red shirts, 90 customers, i am missing something, or they had thier lobotomy ?have20:44
Frank_Leachioria, will try iconfig20:44
Fanfydpurgert - well a friend of mine  told me to do these commands for it. but they don't work either x.x sudo apt-get install libwxgtk2.8-0 libhunspell-1.2-0  tar -xf <tarbal> sudo ./install.sh20:44
ztguescott: Well, did not quite get a total understanding of everything you just said. but I will give nomodeset a try to see if it fixes my resume from suspend problem. Disabling kms for your specific gpu is the same as nomodesetting?20:44
=== chiluk is now known as chiluk_away
escottztgu, should be20:44
dpurgertOK ... hang on20:44
FanfyAnd he said to do it in the terminal not the folder where the card editor is located x.x so yeah none of it works...refuses to do so.20:44
Frank_Leach**no wireless extensions**20:44
ztguescott: ty,20:45
dpurgertFanfy, did you download the *tar.gz file already?  if so20:45
ubuntu-testerFrank_Leach: isn't there a hardware killswitch?20:45
linux111Frank go to Software Sources20:45
Fanfydpurgert - no i don't know where to go or how to do it. I mean i know how  to bring up the terminal and copy and paste but it doesn't woork.20:46
FanfyTells me some denied thing.20:46
Frank_Leachit isnt the hardware problem...software for sure, and its installing the firmware thats the problem20:46
dpurgertyou have to download the file from sourceforge -- grab the 47M one (full install)20:46
ztguescott: ty,20:46
Fanfyyep got it20:46
FanfyI installed it. It's sitting in a folder in my home thing20:46
escottztgu, at present my understanding of X and opengl is that the application writes to a buffer, and then compiz or some other compositor tells the kernel to draw it. with kms the kernel knows the state of the graphics card and can manage memory on behalf of it. the kernel (with the help of the compositor) could then map a page in the applications address space to a page in the graphics card DMA range, and the kernel could then do the dra20:46
escottwing without further involvement of the compositor. i think thats what DRI2 does over DRI. but the kernel can't do that unless it knows the state of the card20:46
dpurgertOK, so you extracted the tarball already?20:47
Frank_Leachgo to software source and do...what?20:47
ubuntu-testerFrank_Leach: firmware? did you update card's fw?20:47
FanfyI dunno what 'tarball' is but I extracted it to my 'home' folder thing whatever it is20:47

dpurgert"tarball" is the "full" name for a file ending *tar ...20:48
FanfyI mean i can view folders and files and when I click 'install' i click run in terminal and then it does something and tells me it didn't work.20:48
Frank_Leachububtu helper, how do i do that?20:48
linux111DELL INPIRON20:48
ztguescott: That's quite an understanding20:48
Guest68561helllo , i ve installed ubuntu without boot loader. how do i install grub legacy using a live usb?20:48
escottztgu, only if its all correct ;)20:48
dpurgertOK Fanfy, what you have to do is open a terminal, and then navigate to inside the magicset directory20:48
ubuntu-testerFrank_Leach: you don't have to20:48
Fanfydpurgert - Okay I know how to do that!20:49
Frank_Leachoh? So what do i do bro20:49
ioriaFrank_Leach: lspci ?20:49
linux111go to software sources20:49
