saltmiseravoid lubuntu in my opinion, as well.00:01

ClientAliveI googled "dual boot windows 8 and ubuntu 12.04" and I'm seeing what looks like a lot of challenges with this. Is there any advice before I make a decision about this? Truth is: I would prefer an LTS version but I would also prefer ubuntu as UEFI boot. Am I correct in assuming 12.10 is UEFI but 12.04 is not? Any advice what my best option is?00:21
=== grep is now known as Guest78091
craigbass1976ClientAlive, I've had pretty good luck since dapper sticking withthe LTS versions.00:23
ClientAlivecraigbass1976: thx for the input man00:23
craigbass1976ClientAlive, but I'd already quit dual booting by then, so I'm only half helpful I guess00:23
icewhackrTrying to get Ubuntu for Intel i73820 x64.  Download sez for AMD64.  Is this OK to use?  Or another Intel64 download  . . . ?00:23
ClientAliveI wonder if I can somehow have my cake and eat it too? (ie: uefi and lts in the same release of ubuntu)00:23
escottClientAlive, disable secure boot. make sure you are booting your isntall media in efi mode.00:24
aeon-ltdicewhackr: that just means it's 64bit00:24
k1l_icewhackr: its called amd64 but its for intel and amd00:24
escottClientAlive, and you shouldnt have any major issues with 12.04 and uefi provided you disable secure boot00:25
escottClientAlive, if it picks the wrong bootloader you can just chroot in and install grub-efi00:25
icewhackrOK - Thnx - don't worry about the AMD name & just use on Intel as well.00:25
craigbass1976ClientAlive, down the road (after 14.2 maybe?  Anyone chime in) I don't think there will be the current LTS and "slightly less stable but still way better than Windows" scenario anymore.00:26
ClientAliveescott: cool. But now, about the time 12.04 came out I tried a uefi install on my desktop machine and it-was-a-horrrrorrrr-show. I ended up having to install in bios boot to get a working install. Have those issue been worked out? What can I expect when I try to do a uefi ubuntu install nowadays? Anything to watch out for?00:26
escottClientAlive, why was it a horror show00:27
craigbass1976I followed these directions to fix someone's borked upgrade (they tried going to 12.04 to 12.10 yesterday) and I think it tok, but now 'm stuck at initramfs.  I have already been in the fs (just regular mounting from a livecd and chroot fom teh cd) and so I don't think it's a bad drive.  Also, there's no ntfs partition involved elsewhere on the drive.00:27
ClientAliveescott: It has been so long ago now that I don't recall the details (though I probalby have some scraps of paper around here with notes on them). All I rember is it was feeling very frustrated, not being able to get it to install correctly (or at all), spending a lot of time (as in a couple weeks) reaching out for help, and ultimately not being able to do it.00:28
escottClientAlive, well efi is your only option if you want to dual boot00:29
escottso i would just go ahead and get started00:29
escottcraigbass1976, "these directions" what directions?00:30
craigbass1976escott, oops.  http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=158109900:30
ClientAliveescott: (or anyone) - If I could have my DREAM UBUNTU - the cat's meaw - it would boot using boot stub where it just directly boots the kernel as an efi image. What do you think about that? Is it doable? How costly would that be (time, frustration level, etc)?00:31
escottcraigbass1976, well if you are in the initramfs then grub is working00:31
escottClientAlive, absolutely doable. i believe it requires a patched kernel. i dont believe those patches are in ubuntu kernel00:32
escottClientAlive, and honestly i think it will never be a particularly popular way of booting the system. people like the menus, people like the shim support for secure boot, and im wary of putting the kernel on a fat partition00:32
ClientAliveescott: so what is the basic outline of doing something like that? (my guess? - fresh install of ubuntu desktop, then ?????)00:33
escottClientAlive, you would be compiling your own kernel and directly placing it into the efi partition. i can't say more about how its done as I dont know much about it00:33
ClientAliveescott: I had not considered that notion before (putting the kernel on a fat partition). What, and defragging?00:34
ClientAliveescott: I see  :)00:34
craigbass1976escott, I figured.  But how to folks normally get past initramfs when it's not bad drive or ntfs related?  I'm about to go down this path: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1877789&page=200:34

zygopteraMint's packages sound yummy00:51
k1l_InFlames: the xorg.conf is not needed00:51
craigbass1976escott, a way around  this whole thing would be if I could dump out some mysql databases somehow from a livecd.  Ever heard of anyone doing that?00:51
InFlamesi assumed that00:51
k1l_InFlames: if no xorg.conf is there it uses autodetect00:51
InFlamesmy issue is really with setting up dual monitors00:51
escottcraigbass1976, sure. just get the mysql client packages installed in the livecd00:51

secleinteerhi, is there an up-to-date ppa for eclipse? all i could find was one with v3.400:58

listerSeven_Six_Two: http://www.msi.com/product/nb/CR460.html#?div=Specification02:50
krywkk1l, Well, I didn't get this problem at all with other native Linux games. I might try it out with 'No Heroes' once it's out (Linux port, also Unity). If the problem is present there, then it might be Unity game issues.02:50

cublike for example.... the Window preview is slower on this machine than it was on my desktop using the LiveCd02:53
Seven_Six_Twolister, buy from somewhere else.02:53

Seven_Six_Twolister, so what? You send me $100 and I'll send you a computer.02:54
genoobiekll no way to know just yet02:54
genoobieI just logged in from memory02:54
genoobienot sure how to get a terminal screen when the video is all effed02:54
genoobieany suggestions?02:54
Seven_Six_Twolister, you get what you pay for, and a shop that won't take back something that doesn't work, doesn't deserve your money. Spend a little bit more and get something that's not chaff.02:54
k1lgenoobie: with crtl+alt+f1 you can switch to a terminal and with crtl+alt+f7 you can switch back02:55
genoobieokay cool!02:55
genoobieit's giving errors on the tty02:55
listerSeven_Six_Two: Well, where do you live?02:55
Seven_Six_Twolister, and don't think I don't know what it means to not be able to afford it. There's a reason that I'm using a 6 year old pc right now.02:55

Seven_Six_TwoI would suggest buying from a reputable online retailer if there aren't any other shops that you can go to.02:57
krywkIs this the full error, genoobie? Buffer I/O error on device fd0, logical block 002:57
krywkOh, yes it is.02:57
Seven_Six_Twolister, sorry...I'll have to end this line, as this is an Ubuntu support channel.02:58

genoobieSeven_Six_Two, awesome!03:02
genoobieokay, so I just installed lubuntu03:02
genoobiethe splash screen comes up fine\03:02
genoobiebut then the login screen is completely borked03:03
genoobieprobably a bad X11 setting03:03

kc5fwk_does anyone know how to get Ubuntu to mail a copy on disc?  I'm not seeing a link on the website.  I'm probably looking right at it though ..... lol03:03
Seven_Six_Twogenoobie, ok, can you alt+ctrl_F1 for a terminal?03:03
bashinateI have a question, when logging into splash screen it immediately takes me back,  mysql is failing to start i see03:03
bashinaterestarting xorg has not helped03:03
Seven_Six_Twogenoobie, don't worry about the floppy. I'll show you the fix.03:03
genoobieSeven_Six_Two, yes, but I am back at grub thinking there is a command line option that might help with "X" and fd003:04
genoobieshould I just boot to ubuntu?03:04
Seven_Six_Twogenoobie, no, boot normally, and ctrl+alt+f1 and then log in.03:04
DmnchildIs there a better way to edit user accounts than the system settings? it seems I created a user, but possibly allocated a small amount of /home space to this user when i want them to have no limitations.03:04
Seven_Six_Twogenoobie, tell me when you're ready.03:04
Seven_Six_TwoDmnchild, you both share the /home space03:05
genoobiethere seems to be some kind of batch thing in the beginning that is looking for a floppy03:05
Seven_Six_Twogenoobie, don't worry about it.03:05
DmnchildHm, mebbe its a setting elsewhere for the program limiting that user account.03:05
gilbI just installed Ubuntu and selected encryption with the installer- how do I set the password now?03:06
genoobieSeven_Six_Two, I am logged in03:06
Dmnchild /home has 2tb03:06
genoobieit stopped trying to mount the floppy03:06
escottgilb, its the user password03:06
genoobiebut login screen is borked03:06
gilbescott, thank you03:06
escottgenoobie, some motherboards send weird stuff wrt to floppys you can blacklist the module03:06
gilbis there any way to verify that my disk is in fact encrypted?03:06
escottgilb, encrypted home is different from encrypted disk03:07
Seven_Six_Twogenoobie, ok, at the terminal, type (without quotes) "sudo apt-get install gdm". it will prompt for your password, and then ask you to choose a display manager. choose gdm and tell me what the other choices are.03:07
genoobieescott, that's a bit out of my league at the moment03:07
escottgilb, but your ciphertext is stored in ~/.Private03:07

bashinatewould mysql not starting have anything to do with being re-directed to splash screen at login ?03:08
genoobiedo I want to continue?03:08
genoobieno choices listed03:08
Seven_Six_Twogenoobie, yes03:08
gilbescott, thank you again03:08
genoobieSeven_Six_Two, what's the basic idea here03:08
Seven_Six_Twogenoobie, that's just asking because apt selected other packages to install as well. They're probably dependencies.03:09
krywkIt looks like 'One Late Night' requires an i5 to run at Beautiful-Fantastic03:09
krywkI have an i303:09
Seven_Six_Twogenoobie, changing the default display manager. That's what gives the login screen.03:09
=== omfg is now known as omfgwhy
genoobiegdm is an option and lightdm is an option03:09
omfgwhyive got a strange ubuntu issue03:09
Seven_Six_Twogenoobie, since yours looks corrupted, changing to another one is a good first step.03:09
Seven_Six_Twogenoobie, choose gdm03:09
omfgwhyit appears that apt has a hardcoded ip address for us.archive.ubuntu.com03:09
krywkActually no03:10
krywkLightdm is better.03:10
krywkGDM usually gives problems with newly created users.03:10
genoobieSeven_Six_Two, does the display manager only handle the intro screen?03:10
krywkYou can change it later though03:10
krywkSo if you're experiencing these kind of problems, don't worry03:10
Seven_Six_Twokrywk, oh? and can you fix a corruption from the terminal? You've been here long enough to suggest something genius.03:10
genoobieso the dm became corrupted (or at least that's the premise)?03:11
Seven_Six_Twogenoobie, yes, and you can change it at will.03:11
genoobieback at $03:11
Seven_Six_Twogenoobie, no. "sudo service gdm restart"03:11
Seven_Six_Twogenoobie, and see if you get to a good login screen03:11
krywkSeven_Six_Two, actually you CAN change from GDM to LightDM from terminal03:11
krywkNot sure how though, but you can.03:11
genoobieequally borked03:12
Seven_Six_Twokrywk, I know. that's what we just did.03:12
genoobieuh oh03:12
Seven_Six_Twogenoobie, can you define "borked" without saying "broken"?03:12
genoobieso is ctrl-alt-f103:12
krywkWait, so he's been using LightDM the whole time?03:12
Seven_Six_Twogenoobie, what do you see?03:12
genoobiehold a sec03:12
Seven_Six_Twogenoobie, can you do ctrl+alt+F2?03:13
genoobiehow do I switch out of terminal screen again?03:13

pingupinguwhats is the preferred backup solution?03:17
genoobieSeven_Six_Two, I am rebooting because I could not read the tty03:18
Seven_Six_Twogenoobie, ok.03:18
krywkI might be talking out of my butt though, so I'm not sure03:18
genoobiekrywk, if you are you could put that on youtube and make money...03:18
krywkYep, definitely talking out of my butt.03:19
genoobieokay, urgh03:19

tripelbI have QN old dell and a windows disk for xp that says for computers that already have windows so I reinstalled and it looks like it worked BUT... It left the Ubuntu partition and now the Ubuntu disk LiveCD cannot see any operating systems on the disk.  At first it just booted into windows. Now I get a choice. I also have some not partition that came with the dell, for recovery? I just want everything proper.  Please help.03:20
krywkescott, I mean, in normal ubuntu use, not for installing or anything like that, just to transfer files from one PC to another03:21
Seven_Six_Twogenoobie, can you paste the output of "lspci -v" to pastebin.com and paste a link to it here please?03:21
genoobiewhat does this mean...03:21
escottkrywk, still the same can be said... its cheap lower power, fragile form factor03:22
escottkrywk, make sure you aren't pulling it before it completely umounts03:22
genoobieum, not really sure how to do this without a graphical interface03:22

krywkescott, it's a Kingstom DT-102, 4 GB03:22
genoobieSeven_Six_Two,  um, not really sure how to do this without a graphical interface03:22
krywkI don't think it's a low-end pendrive at all03:22
Seven_Six_Twogenoobie, how to downgrade your mesalib? I wouldn't try it...03:23
krywkescott, also, I make sure to remove it in safe mode before pulling it out03:23
genoobieSeven_Six_Two, so I have to go back to an older version of lubuntu03:23
genoobiethat's fine03:23
genoobieSeven_Six_Two, that's what I get from reading that bit of help03:24
escottkrywk, im not saying it has anything to do with low-end or high-end03:24
Seven_Six_Twogenoobie, if you've got a few minutes, I'll take a quick break and have a think. An older version would be the easiest03:24
Seven_Six_Twogenoobie, you're standing at the edge of a rabbit hole.03:24
genoobieSeven_Six_Two, that's what that seems to imply though correct...although that person is obviously able to make it work03:24
genoobiejust poor video performance.03:24
genoobieI suppose I could just run XP03:25
Seven_Six_Twogenoobie, although to be honest, this kind of issue is how I learned about linux.03:25
escottkrywk, im saying its a market where the price point is for a disposable product... so they aren't making industrial strength flash drives. if it gets your pictures from one computer to the next call it a victory. if it doesn't reformat and try again03:25
Seven_Six_Twogenoobie, yeah, it'03:25
genoobieI was able to run xubuntu and it loaded up OK03:25
genoobielet me try lubuntu 1103:26
Seven_Six_Twogenoobie, it's looks like it's possible, but probably not if you have to get personal help on irc.03:26
Seven_Six_Twogenoobie, sorry. not that it's impossible, but for me to guide you through it would be a lot more difficult than downloading an older version and sticking with that.03:26
genoobieI think 11 has the 3.x kernel though03:26
krywkAlso I just made a port for Pesadelo for Linux03:26
krywkJust copied over a few files from One Late Night03:27
genoobiexubuntu was fine, just super slow03:27
genoobiemaybe I should try to slim down xubuntu03:27
Seven_Six_Twogenoobie, that's related to the 3d driver (hardware acceleration) but the mesalib is for software acceleration.03:27
genoobiesomehow that version 12.10 worked...now I am perplexed03:27
genoobiebut xubuntu - lubuntu should've installed the same.03:28
genoobiegranted I went with an alternate install on the lubuntu03:28
Seven_Six_Twogenoobie, 12.10 worked for you?03:28
genoobieand xubuntu I used the graphical install03:28
listerI'm going to the bed...03:28
Seven_Six_Twogenoobie, then go back to that!03:28
genoobienite lister03:28
genoobieyes, but the problem was xubuntu was prohibitively slow03:29
Seven_Six_Twogenoobie, you can strip it down once it's working03:29
genoobieSeven_Six_Two, are you going to be around a while?03:29
genoobienot really sure how to "strip it down"03:29
Seven_Six_Twogenoobie, oh yes. I'm up late tonight. I have to finish reading Tigana.03:29
Seven_Six_Twogenoobie, stopping stuff that is running that you don't need03:30
genoobieokay I will be back after I install xubuntu, again, for the umpteenth time :)03:30
krywkI wonder if I can do the same for other Unity games03:30
Seven_Six_Twogenoobie, have you considered DSL or Puppy?03:30
genoobiepuppy was ok03:30
genoobiepkgman in puppy was a bit rough03:31
Seven_Six_Twogenoobie, I can imagine!03:31
genoobieiirc the sound didn't work either03:31
genoobieonly went up to the 2.x kernels03:31
Seven_Six_Twogenoobie, I have a legal copy of 98SE if you're interested.03:32
genoobieI can't even remember how to use that OS03:32
genoobieI wonder if chrome would even work on that...03:33
genoobieto be honest, xp works OK, just not great03:33
genoobiethought I could get better performance with *nix03:33
Seven_Six_Twogenoobie, you can, but part of it depends on you...03:33
genoobieheh...puppy has a new distro...03:34
genoobiemaybe I'll try puppy03:34
genoobiewhat's the difference between slackware compatible and precise-pangolin compatible...03:35
Seven_Six_Twogenoobie, slackware is a totally different beast03:35
Seven_Six_Twogenoobie, it doesn't use apt03:36
genoobieokay I will skip it for now03:36
genoobieyeah, I don't want to mess with figuring out dependencies, etc.03:36
Seven_Six_Twogenoobie, I wasn't making a qualitative observation though. Slackware is very good, and known to be very stable.03:36
genoobieSeven_Six_Two, any suggestion on which puppy distro might be best?03:36
ubottu#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!03:37
Seven_Six_Twogenoobie, debian is also another good choice. very stable, uses apt.03:37
genoobieSeven_Six_Two, so what was wrong with xubuntu?03:37
genoobieI mean it is slow03:37
Seven_Six_Twogenoobie, nothing. But there are lots of choices, and each has its advantages.03:37
genoobiehrm, puppy was the fastest one I have used to date03:38
Seven_Six_Twogenoobie, it's designed for very lightweight machines. but xangua is right, and we should go to offtopic to discuss further03:39
genoobieSeven_Six_Two, I don't want to take all your time03:39
Seven_Six_Twogenoobie, don't worry. I'll let you know when I'm too busy. There's a reason I run multi-head03:40
genoobieokay, so I have two options,03:40
genoobiepuppylinux or try to slim down xubuntu03:40
genoobieI don't know that the latest release of puppy works either03:41

bashinateand then you can scp without a passwd04:57
somsipchamunks: set up SSH key access. If you have a valid key for the machine you're connecting to, it will use it without prompting (if there is no password on the key)04:58
chamunksbashinate, Holy hell thank you very much.04:58
chamunksbashinate, I've been /bin/bash'ing my head against my desk for hours trying to figure this out.04:58
bashinatessh-keygen -t rsa04:58
bashinatethat will create the public / private key pair04:58
chamunksbashinate, and I can install that ssh keypair into the root user then via sudo>?04:59
chamunkswould that let this be possible?04:59
bashinateyou can login with ssh keys as root if thats what your asking ?05:00
bashinateor whatever other user you want05:00
chamunksbashinate, yes because I need the webdev to have access to the webroot and he can only connect via filezilla/winscp05:00
bashinateyeah thats fine05:00
somsipchamunks: you are going to allow someone else root access to your server?05:00
chamunkssomsip, this is just a testing box05:01
chamunkssomsip, I'd rather be more fined grained with the controll access but i dont really know any other ways right now.05:01
somsipchamunks: you really would be better setting up safe permissions, but it's up to you05:01
bashinateyeah somsip is right, but thats your choice05:01
somsipchamunks: at the least, you could just add the dev user to www-data group so you keep him in /var/www05:02
chamunkssomsip, I've been having nothing but nightmares getting the perms working I gave up at one point to see if chmod 777 would work but then it was just messing with me anyways and still giving me perm denied responses.05:02
bashinatei would never give a developer root, you can just create a user account for them and they can still login with ssh keys05:02
chamunkssomsip, I couldnt find the name of that damn group earlier anywhere www-data ok I'll use that access control method in the main server.05:02
chamunksbashinate, well I have added him as that I tried that and even installed the webroot of his vhost inside his /home/05:03
somsipchamunks: from long, slow experience, it is well worth while learning about how to use permissions before you start doing things like this. It is a process of learning, but it's vital on servers open to others05:03

lasindiHi all, I'm trying to install Ubuntu 12.10 on my HP Pavilion g7. When I select "Try Ubuntu" or "Install" or "Check Disc for Errors" I just get a black screen. I saw online it might be due to my Radeon graphics card, but when I press Ctrl Alt F1 nothing happens. I did try entering the GRUB command environment, and it told me I could press Ctrl X to boot, but that doesn't work (the alternate key (don't remember what it was) does work). So I'm not sure if my C05:03
lasinditrl key doesn't work in GRUB for some reason, or where I can go from here.05:03
chamunkssomsip, yeah im usually fine with this method its just tonight im throwing my hands up because this server isnt that important its just meant to essentially be testing anyway05:04
chamunksbashinate, oh god I know very much about 777 :P05:04
somsipchamunks: I understand. Just trying to offer advice, but take it as it's needed right now.05:04

DWSRWhat flavours of the ubuntu kernel are there? I see generic and lowlatency.05:57

xrstripelb,  i already told you what to do. use a live disk to boot the machine and remove the ubuntu partition and resize the windows partition with gparted. then use a windows disk to boot the machine and run windows boot repair06:03

anthony__well i booted from a usb before. i made that bootable by using the usb creator on ubuntu . it worked ok but im missing drivers on my ubuntu now. i thin its cause i did a downgrade from 12.10. 12.10 didnt work well on my computer because my  video card wasnt goood enough07:39
dr_willismistere:  no idea. try making a guest share and see if it works. I normally just set up home shares for the users via editing the smb.conf file. you should be able to set a samba password however.07:39

dr_willisMayazcherquoi:  depends on your needs. - you want latest stuff go latest.. you want long term support go LTS07:45
Mayazcherquoidr_willis: I am trying to think from a usability stand point.07:46

xrsRAcEBOT,  no but the ISO you download from there has everything you've been asking for and more all night. you would have had this done by now had you tried it.08:29
aeon-ltdRAcEBOT: the easiest way, would be to just plug into your router with eth then go to it's ip and look it up08:29
kristian-aalborgthe machine should not reboot after a disk check!08:29
cfhowlettkristian-aalborg, NO reboot at all?08:29
kristian-aalborgcfhowlett, it should just resume the boot after the check, I believe?08:30

codephobicI'm using Ubuntu 12.10 and I have an AMD/ATI Radeon HD 3000 on-board gfx chip. Is it possible to get the desktop cube working with this card? I read that the proprietary Catalyst driver (12.6), isn't compatible with the current X-Server and most articles seem to just advice waiting for AMD to do something in the future...09:15
codephobichi nuxninja09:15
nuxninjacodephobic but have you tried the amdccc 12.609:17
codephobicnuxninja, to be honest, I've stayed away from testing it out as I have had a few horrible issues with on-board gfx and proprietary drivers in linux (both debian squeeze and previous ubuntu had issues with my old nvidia drivers)09:19
ls89codephobic: They released catalyst 13.1 already.09:19
codephobicls89, I was just at the AMD website, checked for the latest driver for my Radeon HD3000 series and it was 12.609:19
sagacidr_willis, thanks for the tip09:19
ls89codephobic: 13.1 is working with the current X-server from 12.10, but it currently fails to switch to the integrated card. So, you have to stick with the dedicated then.09:20
nuxninjacodephobic nvidia has more problems than AMD on linux...i have been using amdccc for 4 years now.....no problems whatsoever.09:20
nuxninja13.1 is not recommended for Radeon 3000 only 12.6 is sagaci09:21
codephobicnuxninja, I experienced some of those problems first hand, when I had to install the proprietary drivers to get access to Compiz in Debian and Ubuntu09:21
ls89Oh, just read HD3000  thought the intel one.09:21
nuxninjacodephobic try it .... try and install amdccc 12.6..09:21
codephobicnuxninja, do you see any notable improvement in graphics speed and do you get the 3D cube stuff?09:22
ls89But the 13.1 is been released as legacy driver, too.09:22
nuxninjaim using Radeon 6790 with 13.1 ......rock solid. codephobic09:22
codephobicnuxninja, yes but AMD's Catalyst is supposed to work okay with 5000 series and up09:23
nuxninjatesting 650Ti with 310.19......works nicely but the usual black and white screens on compiz shift-switcher09:23
codephobicthe problem is particular to the "legacy" devices of the 2000-4000 series09:23
ixio2guys whats the best way to get the AMD drivers installed, I have an A8 APU I also need sound to go out via HDMI. I have, in the past had issues with sound using FGLRX, I have had success with AMD propietry beta drivers, but they have a watermark/overlay.. its been a few months and this is my first 12.10 installation so looking for advise09:23
nuxninjaNo AMDccc 12.6 is for Radeon 300009:24
nuxninjaixio2 same thing install amdccc 13.1 from amd.com website09:24
nuxninjahdmi only works with amdccc09:24
nuxninjacodephobic you have problems and so do i with 12.10 then try use 12.04 its rock solid09:25
codephobicnuxninja, that's what seems to be the advice ... go back to 12.04 :(09:25

ClientAlivedr_willis: this sounds like a painfully long journey I'm in for09:31
ikoniaClientAlive: please try to rephrase your question09:31
nuxninjasee howto install nvidia proprietary drivers on google search or askubuntu.com  ....you will have to install something like nvidia-swat.....check09:31
dr_willisClientAlive:  ;)  and on a new windows laptop - i find their 'make restore disk' apps seem to take 3+ hrs to make a 3 dvd set....09:32
ixio2man I dont get this.. of all the dropdowns the only one that sounds close to an APU is "embedded graphics", the  A8 has a AMD HD 5670.. this does not appear in the sub-menu after choosing embedded09:32
dr_willisClientAlive:  i would see what gparted says about your windows 8 setup.  the LTS version may never get the  updated kernel for full support of new laptops.. they are getting rather complex these days. ;)09:32
ClientAlivedr_willis: After selecting the option that lets me manually partition, I am seeing my existing partitions. I just want to be certain what I'm looking at before I go too far.09:33
qasimnuxninja, no i mean i had successfully installed nvedea graphics card and i changed my graphics settings from xserver to nvedea but it dint resolve the problem09:33
qasiminstalled nvedea graphics card driver*09:33
ixio2perhaps the A8 is not classed as an APU ?09:33
nuxninjaixio2 dekstop graphics-apu-follow ahead ;)09:33
dr_willisClientAlive:  you may want to ask in #windows what the partions are for. MS  and vendors have been dong weird stuff with disk partions in recent years09:33
ClientAlivedr_willis: I see my efi partition and a partition it calls sda1 (which I think is where win 8 is).09:33
ClientAlivedr_willis: good idea09:33
nuxninjadid you install something like swat qasim09:34
dr_willisbetween the special boot partion windows likes now.. and the efi partions.. i barely know what they all do.09:34
qasimim not sure09:34
qasimi dont know  what that is09:34
ixio2thanks nuxninja, depending on what page you access it from APU does or does not appear in the desktop list09:35
ixio2but found it now09:35
nuxninjait installs the proprietary drivers which disables the kernel driver .....then after that you have to install nvidia driver from site.....google search qasim09:35
ClientAlivedr_willis: I can tell what 3 of the partitions are and it's expected it would be that (looks right). But there is a sda3 where it says "unknown" in the "used" column of the partition editor. 134 mb with no file format listed.09:36
* nuxninja drags ixio2 by the collar and throws him out09:36
qasimnuxninja, if you mean it helps installing the nvidea driver...then i did that i had to uninstall kernal driver i lost my display than i ran nvidea driver commands to install and set ...the driver was working properly09:36
dr_willisClientAlive:  may be a special boot partion. would be my guess09:36
qasimnuxninja, and it did disable the kernal(X server ) driver09:37

I have tried 2 adaptors (one USB, one PCI) with no luck and have upgraded the OS from 11.10 to 12.10 with still no success. Can anyone recomend a good PCI card I can go and buy that will just slot in, be detected and work with minimum (read 'no') effort.09:39

ClientAliventfs sucks and windows won't read ext10:16

ClientAlivelinux matters, windoze is forced on my by my school10:19

ClientAlivemaybe I shoud be running windows in a vm (like someone else strongly suggested)10:21
ClientAlivethen you have performance issue10:21
HyperiantClientAlive: What is it that you want to accomplish?10:21
Guido1Hello, i would like to ad a plugin to rhythembox, but i don't know how10:21
ClientAlivewell dual boot win 8/ ubuntu 12.04 and all storage space ext4 would be nice10:22
cfhowlettGuido1, see #rhythmbox or projects.gnome.org/rhythmbox/10:22
ClientAlivebut stupid windows will have to have some kind of storage eventually (probably sooner than later)10:22
HyperiantClientAlive: Then it's not wasted space to partition the drive10:22
Guido1cfhowlett: there seams no one to be online :-(10:23
makarahi. I set some jobs to run later when CPU load was down. Now I just want them to run no matter what. What command?10:23
ClientAliveI know, all my options suck10:23
ClientAliveI have to think about this10:23
ubottumakara,: cron is a way to schedule execution of software/scripts. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/CronHowto10:23
Guido1ubottu: perhaps crone could help me too10:24
ubottuGuido1: I am only a bot, please don't think I'm intelligent :)10:24
nuxninjaGuido1 i dont use Rythmbox :P soree10:24
Guido1ubottu: can i start a playlist with it a a specific time?10:24
ubottuGuido1: I am only a bot, please don't think I'm intelligent :)10:24
HyperiantHow do you fix a power button not doing anything when pressed in 12.10?10:25
cfhowlettGuido1, pretty sure there must be a way feed a playlist to rhythmbox via terminal.  Find that and configure cron accordingly10:25
makaraHyperiant: sounds like a joke :)10:25
Hyperiantmakara: Holding the power button turns off the computer.  Pressing it is supposed to bring up a prompt.  It doesn't.10:26
ClientAlivewhat is vnc like - performance wise?  (I could run a windows vm on my desktop, which has a lot more resources, and vnce into it - maybe)10:26
cfhowlettClientAlive, if you only need occasional windows, consider installing a virtualbox10:27
Guido1nuxninja: perhaps you can help me anyway as i have to untar the plugin and to put it into a special folder - gnome2/rhythembox/plugins but i don't know where to find it and how to untar it at the place. i found one place and there untar doesent work10:27
nuxninja!ubotto  | vnc10:27
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 !FreeNX10:27
Hyperiantmakara: More accurately, I can turn off the laptop using the power button, but only because holding it down actually cuts power to the computer.  Ubuntu doesn't react at all when I press it.10:27
nuxninjause nautilus Guido110:27
ClientAlivecfhowlett: This is the sutuation (occasional as you say). I would prefer not to run a vm on the lappy as it's resources are, well, not limited but 'more limited'10:28
ClientAliveso I wonder what vnc is like since I've never used it. Does it lag?10:28
HyperiantClientAlive: Again, what is it you're trying to accomplish?10:28
HyperiantClientAlive: In terms of usability10:29
ClientAliveI'm trying to determine the truly best option for my needs10:29
nuxninjaits lhi sooraj10:29
HyperiantClientAlive: And what are your needs?10:29
nuxninjahi sooraj10:29
ClientAliveHyperiant: yeah, Is it like native performance?10:29
cfhowlettClientAlive, tunneling into another machine is always slower than running from that machine natively ...10:29
ClientAliveI use linux (Ubuntu, specifically). My uni requires us to do some projects in a windows environment.10:30
Guido1nuxninja: do you have any idea where the folder is located? (gnome2/rhythembox/plugins)10:30
HyperiantIt would be slower than running it from a live CD and using persistence on a flash drive10:30
ClientAlivecfhowlett: I see. Like nocieable? Like mouse pointers freezing and shit?10:30
ClientAliveI see10:30

jribNoctifer: there's some sort of weird bug in nautilus where it won't detect changes in permissions even when you press reload (you should try pressing reload in nautilus and verifying it isn't enough).  Probably a good idea to check for a bug in bugs.ubuntu.com and either watch it or create one if it doesn't exist11:15

admin0hi .. in ubuntu, where is the default iptables rules saved ? in which file ?11:17

dr_willisand here i was looking for somthing from legaltorrents.org ;)11:19
hillaryi seem not to be getting it correct. how do i check the line11:19
Ben64just send 12.04 torrent11:19
jribhillary: head /etc/environment11:19
admin0apparently i mistook the iptables rules from one application and thought it was the default .11:19
dr_willisBen64:  nah.. a 6.06  torrent would be funnier11:20
Ben64i've never understood the "ciao, !list" stuff11:20

rax-If I create a template from a VM with SSH key pair set up, when I launch the new VM from the template, will I be able to connect using the public key from the template vm?11:23
hillaryam defeated11:23
rax-i.e. - create key pair, give a server the public key and verify it connects as expected. Create new VM from the machine that houses the private key and connect from the server containing the public key from the VM used for the template?11:25
rax-I could just try it but I'm just hoping for a quick answer11:25
dr_willisBen64:  aparently they cant handle torrents..11:26

Coffeecoco11.04 is not valid11:36
pat__Is there still a "One Fell Swoop" command for installing a lamp server? ^lamp-server or something like that.11:36
Coffeecocoor exist ??11:36
Ben64!lamp | pat__11:36
ubottupat__: LAMP is an acronym for Linux-Apache-MySQL-PHP. However, the term is often used for setups using alternative but different software, such as Perl or Python instead of PHP, and Postgres instead of MySQL. For help with setting up LAMP on Ubuntu, see  https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ApacheMySQLPHP - See also the Server CD installation process.11:36
ThinkT510Coffeecoco: 11.04 is no longer supported11:36

zoozhow do I disable a service to start on boot?11:39
pat__Ben64, Found one of them -- installing taskel then running it lets you do it quickly.  There was another though that I remember...11:39
pat__zooz, what service?11:39
zoozpat__, any, let's say a service called "foobar"11:39
MonkeyDustzooz  is this useful http://upstart.ubuntu.com/11:40
dr_willisthat upstart cookbook doc site is worth reading.. ;)11:40
pat__zooz, what they said.  I waslooking for a GUI but I'm not familiar enough yet with unity.11:42
jribzooz: depends on whether the service's init script is an upstart script (resides in /etc/init) or is still an old-style sys-v init script (resides in /etc/init.d)11:42
dr_willisive seen no gui upstart manager tools11:42
dogearsI cant shutdown my 12.10 computer?11:42
dr_willisdogears:  a rather common apci/powersaveing/bios/kernel quirk/bug sadly.11:43
MonkeyDustdogears  what happens when you try and did it work before?11:43
dogearsWhat has changed from 12.0411:43
dr_willisa new kernel for one thing dogears11:43
zoozno, not GUI, I am talking about the server edition and let's say my service is an upstart service11:43
dr_williszooz:  and you want to do what exactly with it11:44
dogearsMonkeydust: it was perfect till I just did the last upgrade11:44
zoozdr_willis, I want my 'foobar' service not to start on boot11:44
dr_williszooz:  upstart cookbook mentions 3 differnt ways to disable it...11:44
MonkeyDustdogears  plenty reviews, here's one http://www.linuxuser.co.uk/reviews/ubuntu-12-10-review-linux-users-biggest-ever-super-test11:44
dr_williszooz:  easiest.. rename the foobar.conf to be foobar.dontrun in /etc/init/11:44
dogearsdr_willis: The latest was just installed11:45
Guido1hello, is there a alarmcloc out there which can play a playlist or a rhythmbox plugin for that?11:45
jribzooz: using manual overrides as described in the cookbook is better imo since it still allows you to use upstart to manage the service later (like if you want to start it manually after boot)11:46
zoozright, I see, I thought there was a command or something (ubuntu seems so immature when coming from real distributions like fedora or centos)11:47
zoozyet I am amazed how many people use it11:47
MonkeyDustzooz  please don't start11:47
zoozI will not11:47
dr_williszooz:  wait till everyone changes to that systemd stuff... you will get totally stupified then11:47
zoozdr_willis, I love systemd, been using it for some time now11:48
dr_willisamazing thing about upstart.. its been in use for several realeases now.. and not a lot of people have even noticed the switch from sysv.11:48
dr_willisbut i imagine its days are numbered.11:48
zoozdr_willis, is ubuntu going to switch to systemd?11:48
dr_williszooz:  the rumor mill says yes.. eventually..11:49
zoozah, great11:49
dazewhy is systemd good?11:49
dr_willisdont hold your breath for it to be soon.11:49
dr_willis the init system is an amazingly complex topic daze  once you start getting into it.. upstart fixs some of the problems.. systemd fixs a lot of them also.. in a radically differnt way. ;)11:49
dr_willisI barely understood half the reasons or issues with   init systems till i started reading up on the rather dry topic. ;)11:50
dazeyeah, I read somewhere that systemd is a betrayal of unix principles and such11:50
Noriandir hi. i'm having problems accessing my apache server through my external IP. I have it working for some time now and had no problems until today... =/11:50
zoozdr_willis, could you answer another question for me please? I don't get the point of being interrupted when installing packages, for instance installing mysql prompts me to enter root password and such11:50
dr_williszooz:  never really worried about it. ;)  package managament - another very complex topic. :)11:51
ThinkT510zooz: using the package management should always prompt for your users password11:51
zoozThinkT510, I am not talking about sudo password11:51
MonkeyDustthat's called 'security'11:51
kiwi65745I think what zooz means is the mysql password11:52
dr_willisI thought all those questions got asked at the end of the package session,  where their c pkg config scripts were getting ran11:52
dr_willisso its  a post-install question actually11:52
zoozright dr_willis11:52
kiwi65745even i've faced this issue. It asks for the password during the installation of any software using apt-get11:52
dr_williscomplex packages may need input.. thats just life.11:52
dr_willisor else ya got to go back then redo that command to configure them afterwards.. (i forget the command)11:53
zoozI have been using RPM-based packages for years and have never been prompted or interrupted during any package install11:53
dr_willissudo dpkg-reconfigure -a  (ugh!) ;)11:53
zoozI think there is a way to turn this off11:53
zoozwhich is great11:53
dr_willisso how do you set the myswl password then.11:53
kiwi65745dr_willis why does mysql need authentication everytime i want to install ANOTHER software?11:54
dr_willismysql asks for the mysql Root users password on install i recall11:54
dogearsdr_willis: Do we wait for the fix? This was rebooting following the latest upgrade.11:54
kiwi65745yes, and then it asks you to authenticate the same everytime you install something else. I've faced this on debian as well.11:54
lydadr_willis: debconf-set-selections is what you want to look at.11:55
lydadebconf-set-selections << EOF11:55
lydamysql-server-5.1 mysql-server/root_password password $MYSQL_ROOT_PASSWORD11:55
lydamysql-server-5.1 mysql-server/root_password_again password $MYSQL_ROOT_PASSWORD11:55

dr_willisafter my last upgrade from a .4 to a .10 took 5 hrs... i found clean installs faster. ;)12:10

qasimBen64,  configuration: driver=nouveau latency=012:30
Ben64then you're not using nvidia12:31

histowasanzy: So they should support ever version ever made?12:54

escottdandaman, you can just sudo cat /dev/sda | tee /dev/sdb &>/dev/null17:14
escottdandaman, alternately look at dd or ddrescue17:15

alimjandrew: What is your DAC? Blackmagic-design? Avid?17:15
qhartmanescott, what's the point of the tee in that command, seems extraneous.17:15
escottdandaman, i would always just reinstall, but if the disks are appropriately similar17:15
escottqhartman, what other way would work?17:15
dandamanescott: they arent, but i have settings that i want to preserve17:16

escottdandaman, do NOT use clonezilla17:19
dr_willisescott:  i thought it looked weird17:19
escottdandaman, its an awful idea to be doign that17:19
kunjiHmm, maybe I should file a bug report?  gnome-system-monitor's RAM usage ballooned to 2.1 GB in 6 days.  Does anyone know what would be an expected amount for Xorg to use on a standard Unity install?  Mine at 1.9 GB right now.17:19
escottdandaman, you are going to mark the entire disk as dirty in the SSD firmware17:19
escottdandaman, and then have to trim it all out again17:19
jhutchins_wkescott: What's wrong with clonezilla?17:19
escottjhutchins_wk, nothing wrong with clonezilla. just low level copy in general to an SSD. i didnt realize dandaman was using an SSD17:20
dandamanescott: so plug in the ssd, boot up, then type in sudo cat /dev/sd<original HD ID> | sudo tee /dev/sd<new HD ID> &>/dev/null17:20
dandamanthen set my bios to default to the ssd as the boot device?17:21
dr_williskunji:  xorg itself is using 8% of my 512mb here.. but this is on a raspberry pi. ;)17:21
escottdandaman, you are better off partitioning and then copying files with a command like "sudo cp -aRx / /media/ssd_disk17:21
jhutchins_wkdandaman: You're not booting to the original device are you?17:21
escottdandaman, i would not do that either17:21
dandamanjhutchins_wk: i am17:21
escottdandaman, i would not do any low level copy to the SSD17:21
jhutchins_wkdandaman: Not a good idea.17:21
=== ganja_man is now known as nuxninja
jhutchins_wkdandaman: You need to boot to a different medium - livd CD or USB.17:22
dandamanok, i can handle that17:22
dandamanbrb real quick17:22
jhutchins_wkdandaman: THat will also avoid trying to copy pseudo filesystems like /dev and /proc17:22
kunjidr_willis: Hmm, yeah, I've got a pi, they're nice, mine isn't connected at the moment though.  Right, I'm thinking almost 2 Gigs is too much, but I'm not sure if other things run under that and are included or if that number is just Xorg itself.  I'm thinking it's leaking, maybe I'll leave it another day and check again.17:23
dr_williskunji:  all through beta for 12.10 i had issues where xorg or compiz or somthing would go crazy and lagg the whole system. id restart the X server it would be great for a while... then it would happen again. but i never saw it using lots of ram.. just lots of cpu. ;)17:24
kunjijhutchins_wk: What's he trying to move?17:24
jhutchins_wkescott: A filesystem is a filesystem, but I certainly wouldn't use cat.  Partclone or dd should be fine.17:25
MichaelPWhat is nomodeset command in kernel of boot menu.. for radeon ?17:25
escottdandaman, boot the livecd. partition the new disk.  mount the old disk to /media/old_disk and the new ssd to /media/new_disk then sudo cp -aR /media/old_disk /media/new_disk. then chroot in and reinstall grub17:25
jhutchins_wkkunji: I think he's moving a debian install to a new disk.17:25
kunjidr_willis: Hmm, I do see a fair amount of cpu at times, but with 4 cores it doesn't seem to slow things down too badly and goes away after a while.17:25
dr_willisMichaelP:  nomodeset works for all the gpus.17:25
escottjhutchins_wk, there is no difference between dd and cat. and a filesystem is a filesystem, but an SSD disk is not a normal hard disk17:25
jhutchins_wkescott: I wouldn't use cp either, I'd use rsync.  Much more robust.17:25
dandamana lot of opinions here :( what do i dew?17:26
MichaelPdr_willis, i know but different distro's do it different17:26
jhutchins_wkescott: An ssd presents itself as the same kind of device as a regular disk.  The differences are not exposed to the OS.17:26
ubottuA common kernel (boot)parameter is nomodeset, which is needed for some graphic cards that otherwise boot into a black screen or show corrupted splash screen. See http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1613132 on how to use this parameter17:26
kunjijhutchins_wk: Hmm, I think my preferred tool would be ddrescue then, does just copying the files work out for that?  If so, then rsync is the tool for the job after formatting with say gparted.17:26
escottjhutchins_wk, he is going to mark all the sectors dirty17:27
jhutchins_wkdandaman: I would probably go with a file-level tool like rsync.17:27
escottjhutchins_wk, he also probably has an ext2 or ext3 partition that could be moved up to ext4 with extents17:27
dandamanmy original hd is an ext417:27
jhutchins_wkdandaman: If the partitions are going to be identical, then using clonezilla is a good idea - it gives you the live CD and it doesn't waste time copying blank space.17:27
escottdandaman, you will degrade the performance of you SSD by doing a low level copy to the disk17:27
Nasserany suggestions for live widgets pals?17:28
alimjdandaman: I second escott...17:28
dandamanok, so i need to rsync the files17:28
jhutchins_wkI would not recommend using ext4 unless you have a specific need for it.17:28
dandamangot it17:28
dandamanjhutchins_wk: what should i make my new ssd then?17:28
alimjdandaman: Please do not forget to set the boot partition active...17:28
dandamanalimj: how do i do that?17:29
jhutchins_wkdandaman: rsync -av /input /output - no need for compression (z) since you're not going through any transport.17:29
jhutchins_wkdandaman: Yeah, I'd use ext3.17:29
alimjdandaman: With fdisk or gparted17:29
alimjdandaman: ext3 should be OK. You will not require too much journaling....17:29
dandamangod damn i dont know how to reinstall grub either :(17:30

kunjiHmm, what's with the bias against ext4?17:30
escottdandaman, you will want the following mount options for an SSD noatime,nodiratime,discard17:30
alimjkunji: He is using SSD not HDD17:30
escottalimj, you can use ext4 without journaling17:31
alimjescott: I also love backward compatibility :P17:31
kunjialimj: Right, mind explaining though?  Or citing?  You can even use HDD without journaling, is your point just that because the writes are fast that you shouldn't bother with journaling?17:32
jhutchins_wkWhy would you not use journaling on a modern system?17:32
escottkunji, the idea is that it amplifies the number of writes17:32
alimjkunji: Writing too much information to SSDs will age them. There is a limit for that.17:32
jhutchins_wkescott: Actually, the opposite is true, journalling reduces writes.17:33
dr_willisi still have to wonder at how long the lifespan of these sdds are....17:33
escottjhutchins_wk, i didnt say i agreed with it17:33
escottdandaman, welcome to the world of cutting edge technology. a lot of these decisions will depend on how long you expect your SSD to last17:33
=== nuxninja is now known as hrundi_bakshi
jhutchins_wkalimj: That situation has changed drastically in the last few years, current ssds are much less susceptible to degradation.17:34
=== Wug is now known as Wug[Hyperspace]
escottdandaman, i view SSD as a rather disposable product... if it lasts for 2 years then ill be 2 years closer to being able to buy a robust and well functioning SSD17:34
dandamanescott: :(17:34
kunjiI would expect that their lifetimes are not all that different from HDDs.17:34
alimjjhutchins_wk: Almost agree with you...17:34
dr_willisevery thing is disosable these days...17:34
kunjiescott: I've already had one last 2 years17:34
dandamankunji: shorter but more predictable17:34
jhutchins_wkdandaman: I would treat it like a normal disk.  Make sure you have good backups; if you're interested in optimizing it research the actual hardware you have - don't go by advice on devices that came out two or three years ago.17:35
alimjdandaman: You should not be too much worried. Just partition the SSD similar to HDD, then format using ext3. finally use rsync or cp to copy files & update grub17:35
escottdandaman, i think you will find general agreement on (a) not doing a low level copy (b) setting noatime,nodiratime,discard beyond that to things like journaling vs other filesystems... i dont know17:35

dandamanalimj: will do17:37
escottdandaman, https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Grub2/Installing#via_ChRoot ignore the bit about mdadm17:37
escottdandaman, you will also have to fix up the /etc/fstab because its a new partition with new UUIDs17:37
kunjialimj: Why would that be important?17:37
dandamanall useful info17:38
alimjkunji: It is already explained that we want to avoid pseudo files17:38
escottkunji, cannot get a clean snapshot read of a running filesystem. less important since he is not doing a low level copy17:38
escottalimj, those can be avoided with cp -aRx17:38
kunjialimj: Sorry, I thought you were referring to the Grub part17:38
escottdandaman, the livecd is somewhat optional but i would do it anyways17:39
alimjescott: yes, but if he has /home (or /dev) on another partition17:39
escottalimj, which would not be traversed by "-x"17:39
riegersni have xchat entry in my ubuntu messaging indicator menu, i've uninstalled xchat-indicator, but its still in the list. how can I remove it?17:40

alimjescott: OK17:42
riegersntrism, yes17:42
kunjiriegersn: Hmm, did you uninstall it with sudo apt-get remove <package> or sudo apt-get purge <package>?  If it was the first, then you might try doing the second instead, if that doesn't work then you'll need to find where that menu is configured and change it by hand, unfortunately I don't know where that is...17:42

trismriegersn: ahh, in 12.10, an item won't be removed from the messaging menu until an up unregisters it or the .desktop file disappears...in this case xchat-indicator only ships the shared lib so when you remove it, I imagine it used the xchat .desktop file17:43
trismriegersn: might try removing/reinstalling xchat17:43

escottheywood, thats like ctrl-z; fg in the shell18:03
escottheywood, but you might be able to get it to send a different signal18:04
heywoodJuJuBee: try booting and getting to the BIOS config, before grub (pre-boot kernel selector) comes up. usually it's something like holding F1 down during boot.18:04

ddosantosI edited /etc/fstab but it does not mount where I told it18:33
kunjiDarkSim: Doesn't have to be logical, but I would typically.18:33

hillaryiceroot: i have removed18:33
kunjiddosantos: Does it mount someplace else?18:33
jhutchins_wkddosantos: Paste the fstab to  http://paste.ubuntu.com18:33
ddosantosyeah, it actually does18:33
DarkSimLogical, beginning of space and / mount18:33
ddosantospaste.ubuntu.com, got it18:34
iceroothillary: sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade       the upgrade should be working now18:34
jhutchins_wkDarkSim: Usually you only need a logical partition if you go beyond four partitions.18:34
jhutchins_wkDarkSim In which case you go three physical, one extended, and the rest logical (which are within the extended).18:35
ddosantosyou can have a look at it at http://paste.ubuntu.com/1583169/18:35
escottTost, who owns "the_file_name"18:35
kunjiDarkSim: Logical is the type of partition, there are two kinds, Logical and Physical.  You get 4 physical ones (unless using GPT), if you need more partitions than that, then you have to use logical ones.18:35
jhutchins_wkddosantos: Does /media/externo exist?18:36
ddosantosyes it does18:36
ddosantosI also set the permisions to 777 just in case18:36
kunjiDarkSim: That type being different from the other field that is often called type (the filesystem type), which is what sort of thing the partition will be used for, aka filesystem type, like swap, ext4, etc..18:36
jhutchins_wkddosantos: Where does the device mount instead?18:36

escottTost, if the file already exists someone else may own it and you might not be able to write to it. if its not your directory you might not be able to create files18:38

ddosantosyes I tried a reboot a while ago18:38
ddosantosI am not using the mount command as it mounts itself alone18:39
ddosantoswhen switched on18:39
hillaryIceroot: a minute i will let you know.18:39
zykotick9Tost: fyi#2 and easy way to create a file is "touch filename"18:39
kunjiddosantos: Just checking, because sometimes people test after making the change in fstab by using mount -a I think it is to mount everything listed in the fstab.18:40
jhutchins_wkddosantos: You do not have the auto command in fstab, therefore it will not mount at boot as a part of the normal filesystem.  It is probably being mounted by udev/fuse.  You should doublecheck the UUID.18:40
lolcatWhat is the ubuntu repo for chrome, and how do I add it? My browers is stone dead18:40
ddosantoswhat do you mean with doublecheck? do you there might be any typo¿18:40
ddosantosdo you think*18:40
jhutchins_wkddosantos: Yes, it's possible.18:40
Tostthank you for the replies! ubottu, I will check the site..also, why can't I create files in the /etc/apt/sources.list.d directory within the file system GUI?18:40
icerootTost: because the directory belongs to root18:41
jhutchins_wkddosantos: mount -a or mount /media/externo should mount it properly.18:41
zykotick9Tost: anything outside of /home and /tmp are going to require elevated (ie root) permission probably.18:41
icerootTost: and you are not root, so you are not allowed to write in that directory18:41

ddosantosI hit S to ommit18:42
jhutchins_wkkunji: Different systems don't default to auto.  Ubuntu defaults and uses noauto for override.18:42
ddosantosbecause the hard drive was off at that moment18:42
ddosantosthen when switched on I hoped it would mount at /media/externo18:43
ddosantosbut it didn't18:43
kunjijhutchins_wk: ah, I see, I'll need to keep that in mind.18:43

icerootTost: normally you will manage your repos using the software-center18:43

iceroothillary: you are welcome18:47
ddosantosaren't they? The other partition with ntfs is being correctly mounted at /media/partiwin18:47
kunjiddosantos: In mine I do not have quotes around them, and you don't for your first 2 partitions.18:48
icerootTost: gksudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list18:48
icerootTost: edit that file with the repos you need18:48
icerootTost: no need to create files in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/18:48
Tosticeroot, ok, i was just following the directions but I'll do what you say..18:48
icerootTost: and please remeber, such repos are not supported here, we only support installations with official ubuntu repos18:48
ddosantoskunji: I will try without them, but it makes me doubt as the sda1 is being mounted at /media/partiwin as expected, and that line does have quotes18:49
kunjiddosantos: Also I have no - in utf-8, I have utf8.  Maybe the parser is breaking on that right before the last drive?  Try changing those 2 things and give it a go18:49

kunjiddosantos: hmm, also the utf part is lowercase in mine, I'll post what mine looks like real quick for you.18:50
ddosantoskunji: thank you for the help, that could be, but then why would the first partition be correctly mounted?18:50
jhutchins_wkddosantos: Quotes don't matter, I have both formats and it works either way.18:50
icerootTost: something like that is supported nowhere18:50
icerootTost:  deb http://debian.opennms.org stable main18:51
iceroot deb-src http://debian.opennms.org stable main18:51
kunjiddosantos: If the parser is breaking on the utf portion it will already have the right info for the UUID and mount point of the 1st one and mount it fine, it just may not have the correct locale18:51
icerootTost: that are the only two lines which should be added to that file (still not supported) there other lines with squeeze and so on will break your system 100%18:51
kunjiddosantos: http://paste.ubuntu.com/1583223/18:52

zykotick9iceroot: ;)18:53
kunjiddosantos: internal, but it shouldn't matter.18:53
Tex_Nickkunji : np ... good to see you :-)18:53

icerootzykotick9: :)18:55
Grandpa_smasherno problem kunji getting bind9 now18:55
ddosantoswhat I was thinking is that maybe it tried to mount it at boot, but it couldn't, then failed with the system running18:55
kunjiTex_Nick: I got that screen thing resolved eventually with jrib's help, I posted it here for someone that was having the same problem: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2074264&page=2  turns out Flash had nothing to do with it.18:56

kunjiGrandpa_smasher: Open up the network manager and pick the connection you're using, click edit, go to IPv4 (or 6 if you're using it already) and you should see a field for entering additional DNS servers.19:02
jhutchins_wkorudie: The instructions for installing from a usb drive will tell you how to "burn" it.19:03
Grandpa_smasherya its blank, what should i enter19:03
qhartmanorudie, the easiest way would be to mount the iso and then just copy them like you would any other files19:03

ddosantosthanks you all for your time19:04
Grandpa_smasherGuest1649,  full form?19:04
jhutchins_wkddosantos: Then it _shoud_ automount if you connect it after boot, but because the iomega has replaceable cartridges it might not.19:04
qhartmanjhutchins_wk, zykotick9 - he never said that's what he needed to do, just that he had an iso and that he wanted to "burn" to usb.19:04
kunjiGrandpa_smasher: Well, whatever other dns server you want to use OpenDNS maintains several, but you would need to look them up, I don't remember them.  Google maintains an easy one to remember
ddosantosyes, it automounts, but in another path19:05
jhutchins_wkddosantos: I think the next thing to check is seeing if it mounts properly if it's powered up at boot.19:05
Grandpa_smasherty kunji ill try the google one19:05
ddosantosthat was my idea, yes19:05
ddosantosI don't know why I didn't think of that before19:05

KroachGuest1649: you mean what the shortcut stands for? GRand Unified Bootloader19:06
Niteshany girl here.....16-2219:06
jhutchins_wkddosantos: Your method _should_ work - it works for USB drives I have in order to define permissions for the mounts, but the iomega, well, rules are different.19:07
kunjiGrandpa_smasher: Actually though I think it will still try the other one first, as it is primary and so it still may be slow.  You might need to set up a static ip to force it to use only the dns entries you set (I believe it grabs others through DHCP).19:07
ddosantosjhutchins_wk: thanks for the support, I will make some tests. I think I will set the settings to noauto and mount it manually when needed, as I don't it need it to be always there19:07

qhartmanjhutchins_wk, not neccesarily. Depends on what the person is trying to do exactly. If they are trying to a make a bootable USB from a bootable ISO, it makes sense. If they just need the files on the drive, it's overly complicated and requires that anythingalready on the drive be lost.19:08

alimjdufa: Check md5 of the DVD19:41
alimjdufa: use md5sum /dev/sr019:41
alimjdufa: /dev/sr0 should be replaced with your DVD drive address19:42
dufaalimj: the dvd is in /dev/sr0, should md5sum /dev/sr0 return the the correct sum?19:42
alimjdufa: YES19:42
dufaalimj: well, I thought so, but it doesn't19:42
alimjdufa: As soon as you execute the command, DVD starts spinning fast and reads the entire DVD19:43
alimjdufa: Then the DVD is not same as ISO19:43
