thirdhello anyone have any ideas on no audio with ubuntu 12.04.1 on a gateway 3522gz00:02
R00tk3yOkay I installed vmware00:02
DaemonicApathyI'm assuming it's a Minecraft server, from the port. Forwarding for that should be as simple as adding a custom service, selecting the port to forward (25565 for both Start and End), and selecting the device that this applies to.00:03

rykuuand I did all that Daemonic, but there is still no sign of it working00:04
DaemonicApathyrykuu: Have you considered that something other than the router may be misconfigured?00:05
syntroPirykuu, DaemonicApathy im quite out of ideas, "sudo netstat -tulpen | grep 25565" on server shows its tcp6 open "nmap -p 25565" on other lan pc shows its open, you did forward port 25565 to on your WNDR3700v4 and canyouseeme.org to your external ip shows that port tcp 25565 is closed00:05

syntroPiikonia, not me rykuu is trying to set it up, i havent asked before, here port forwarding works flawlessly00:06
ikoniasyntroPi: sorry, someone else asked about this to connect to his local machine and then forward to a remote machine so no-one knew his remote machine address00:07

datsmoidahow do i run multiple instances of a program that runs as a service (TOR)00:08
syntroPiikonia, sorry never had any routing problems ;-)00:08
DaemonicApathySounds to me like the Netgear is a secondary router, with the primary not set up to forward to it.00:08
syntroPithat could be it00:08
syntroPirykuu, how it your netgear connected to the internet?00:09
rykuunetgear is hooked up to my modem a Windstream modem00:10
DaemonicApathyrykuu: Which model?00:11
syntroPiDaemonicApathy, rykuu well a modem should work on lower protocol level so the netgear does the nat routing here i guess??? isp blocking that ports? possibly? hmmm00:11
rykuuone sec00:11
rykuuspeedstream 430000:12
DaemonicApathysyntroPi, some of the Windstreams support forwarding.00:12
DaemonicApathyrykuu: Assuming a standard setup, go to and forward port 25565 to your Netgear.00:13
C_Clearupgrad ?00:13
syntroPiDaemonicApathy, this is a double NAT then?00:14
C_Clearwas wondering if I could ask a question pretaining to a 12.04 upgrade?00:14
rykuuit says webpage it not avaliable00:14
aeon-ltdC_Clear: ask, don't ask to ask00:14
syntroPirykuu, can you see in your netgear which ip that modem uses?00:15
syntroPiinternal ip00:15
syntroPioh my00:15
DaemonicApathysyntroPi: To answer your question, it does seem to be. That's what it sounded like from the start.00:16
C_ClearNo Prob Aeon-ltd just trying to be Polite. Well long story short after upgrading to 12.04 my video driver plays then goes blank after a while. wanted to see if I could reload the video drivers as a solution but kind of a noob and not sure what the proper  "dpkg" command is to do it00:16

syntroPithere you should enter ip of your netgear00:23
chaospsychexis there a 'repair permissions utility' available ? I have done something terrible and I am scared to re-boot00:23
syntroPirykuu, but the ip the netgear uses for connecting to the modem00:24
rykuuwhats my netgear IP? would that be the external or the or what?00:25

syntroPi_helios_, thats the servers ip behind the netgear00:25
syntroPirykuu, i think its something different00:26
rykuuit said invalid IP00:26
syntroPirykuu, your netgear router has an ip on the lan port it connects to the modem. that should be the correct one i guess00:26

_helios_inet addr:00:31
syntroPithe netgear ip connected to your modem. that might be different from that you can reach it in lan00:31
rykuuin eth0 or lo00:31
_helios_rykuu: eth000:31
_helios_rykuu: ok So in your router you need to forward your port to that IP00:32
rykuuthat is done already00:32
syntroPi_helios_, in netgear router, but that behind the modems nat00:32
rykuuya, so what address do I use to forward the modem to the router?00:33
_helios_rykuu: that will most likely be a mac address or HWaddr00:33
rykuuso I need to type the mac address in the IP address?00:34
kfizzFor some reason, I can't get an external HD to mount at /Apollo/ and be owned by me -- only root. The directory is owned by me until I mount it, and then root owns it.

IDWMasterLately I've been discussing Ubuntu with some of my friends at school and a number of them prefer Debian, mainly because of: a) The unity interface or b) The fact that by default, Unity sends your search data to Amazon when you are just searching for a local program. I was wondering who I would talk to to try and get these defaults changed for new Ubuntu users?03:28
IDWMasterPersonally I like Unity but I don't think search data should be sent to Amazon by default03:28
bazhang!adlens | IDWMaster03:28
ubottuIDWMaster: If you wish not to see "More Suggestions" from places like Amazon in your Ubuntu 12.10, simply remove the package unity-lens-shopping, or adjust your Privacy settings as shown here: http://goo.gl/kFO4u . Mark Shuttleworth's blog entry on this is at http://goo.gl/uF7zZ03:28

godzirraI've not tried 12.04 though.05:43
dr_willisi got wireless thats fully linus supported. no hassles05:44
grahamcrackerkunji yeah i tried 12.04 and 12.10 on my desktop and 12.10 actually used my usb wireless receiver05:44
datsmoidawell now it's illegal to crack a phone, so05:44
agentfor wireless i did an upgrade and played with bios.  It broke a few times.05:44
kunjigodzirra: It mostly was for 12.04 as well, but there was a kernel update that made one of my devices jam the entire wireless band if it came under heavy load, it wasn't fun05:44
grahamcrackerbut 12.04 kept using the one onboard05:44
superear13.04 every app went slow ,why?05:44
grahamcracker12.04 on my laptop is just fine though05:45
grahamcrackeri was wiping my keyboard05:45

supereari love unity!!!05:46
godzirraI can boot refit with a livecd, but I can't figure out how to reinstall it from that live cd.  I think I need to install it to an hfs+ partition05:47

vnc786i am running rsync and want to allocate 50% CPU currently i have done renice to -20 but can't see cpu usage high... its still low..06:36
=== cal is now known as Guest6543
mugsy_vnc786: perhaps the rsync process is not bound by cpu?06:37
icerootvnc786: its a bad idea to set something to -20, specially when it is very io-itensive06:38
kunjivnc786: Disk or network transfer rates are much more likely the cause, but we don't know your hardware setup06:38
icerootvnc786: and the main bottleneck will be %wa (io)06:38
vnc786i am just transfering from sata hdd to sata hdd06:39
vnc786iowait is 39.93 how abt that..06:41
icerootvnc786: and the main bottleneck will be %wa (io)06:41
icerootvnc786: have a look at "ionice" to adjust priority for io-tasks (with the wrong usage you can easily kill the system)06:42
vnc786iceroot: cpu0 95  cpu1 9506:42
icerootvnc786: i dont get what you really want to know. we have told you how to adjust the priority using "ionice"06:43

vnc786iceroot: please have a look at top  http://pastebin.com/aJajqAxj06:52
icerootvnc786: the main problem is rsync is acting on a higher level, when you are using dd (or ddrescue) its working on low-level and does not to the complete repairing when something is broken06:52
icerootvnc786: rsync will try to reread something when there are ioerrors, dd will ignore those errors06:53

ggherdovHi all. I have the unpleasure of being behind an HTTP proxy, and find myself in the need of adding a repo with "add-apt-repository ppa:(...)" What is the config file where I can tell apt about my proxy? as a side note, I have already successfuly set the proxy at  /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/proxy , but apparently it's not enough11:18

chrboAppleJuice: yes, it is on and the disc is inside. but the bios is set to boot from hdd. my only concern is, that when i use reboot, the live-disc will say: "remove cd and press enter to reboot" - I need to get around that13:16

David_BT5@appleJuice : a live-Linux only works well , if you just want to test it. !13:20
David_BT5otherwise , there's no need to launch a live-Linux13:21
SolarisBoyit could work well as a mobile OS too if you dont want to install to multiple hard drives13:21
BlackNarcissusDavid_BT5: Yes, it shuts down randomly, and suddenly. I am testing it right now, doing intensive 3d or video.13:21
AppleJuiceDavid_BT5, I was referring to chrbo issue about rebooting a livecd without interruption.13:21

narufreakHi, newer Ubuntu user here and i wanted to ask a question real quick.  For some reason my screen keeps "blinking" every 5-10 seconds, for no apparent reason, anyone have a clue why?13:27
SolarisBoydatsmoida: paid service ofcourse but afaik it's not very expensive and they have plans and stuff - you get ssh access web access and other types of admin capabilities for your asterix instance13:28

jhutchins_wkjiffe98: When they started enabling ipv6 by default in the kernel, DNS lookups would try that first and time out.  This made lookups when only ipv4 was available very slow until you disabled ipv6.20:24

=== galbak is now known as galbak0
jhutchins_wkjiffe98: It could be that your later copies of ntpdate are trying ipv6 first and waiting for that to time out before trying ipv4.20:25

seanw95Why does my wired network work in virtualbox but not standalone on its own partition?20:36
xentity1xCan anyone help setup a static ip in ubuntu20:37
theadminseanw95: Virtualbox uses a pseudo-network adapter that always works in any recent system. Your actual one, however, may not be supported for some peculiar reason...20:37
theadminxentity1x: Graphical interface or command-line?20:37
jhutchins_wkjiffe98: Sorry, it was worth a try (and part of goog practice anyway if you're not using it.)20:37

theadminxentity1x: Okay, click the Network Manager icon in the bottom and then Edit Connections (or open up "network connections" in the settings), then choose your connection and click Edit,  go to the IPv4 Settings tab (or IPv6 settings if you got lucky :P) and choose Method = Manual. Then enter your configuration and click "Apply".20:39
jhutchins_wkmeelu: Simply configuring ipv6 on your endpoint is not enough to enable it throughout the route.20:39
xentity1xtheadmin, thanks simple enough20:39
seanw95theadmin: could you private message me please?20:40
jhutchins_wkmeelu: Is that address valid with your ISP?  Is your router capable of managing ipv6 routing?20:41

jhutchins_wkseanw95: We try to keep support in the channel so others can contribute and benefit.20:41
theadminseanw95: Yes, it should... What kind of a network is it? Plain ethernet or is there some sort of PPPoE, PPTP or whatnot?20:41

bin_bashfbdystang, you should be able to just apt-get dist-upgrade22:31

bin_bashyou should backup your entire /home directory unless you're smart and put it on its own partition22:32
fbdystangbin_bash: I am running a few servers like samba and others, and I don't want to lose settings.22:32
carlom61so in the Port Forwarding / Port Triggering menu of the router I'd add a service HTTP for forwarding to....?22:32
bin_bashfbdystang, then back up the config files for those22:32
bin_bashseems pretty self-explanatory, no?22:32
genii-aroundfbdystang: dist-upgrade does not increment from 11.04 to 11.10 for instance. You require to do do-release-upgrade for that.22:33
fbdystangbin_bash: I have one of the servers running in var/www so just copying /home wont copy everything. I have a bigger SATA drive on raid connected so I can backkup whatever I need to. I just don't know where all the stuff is to backup. Is it possible to copy an entire hd if I am running on it?22:35
bin_bashyou have to boot into a live environment22:35
genii-aroundcarlom61: First you should probably set the router to set the same LAN number to your machine every time by it's mac address. Then do the port forwarding to that specific IP.22:35
fbdystangAh yes, then I can completely back it up, thanks bin_bash22:36
bin_bashfbdystang, yeah make sure if you have anything in /etc that you need or whateve that you back it up22:36
bin_bashyou can always use rsync to back it up, which imo, is the best utility22:36

SirCluelessahh, so you think the problem is that i *never* had unity3d running22:49
carlom61is there anybody expert on closed source unified NVIDIA drivers install who already knows how to resolve the issue with the disappearance of Unity ecc right after latest drivers have been installed?22:50
SirCluelessthat's possible, i think there was one point where i compiled the latest ATI driver from source and it worked with Unity3d, but then Ubuntu released the -experimental-9 driver which I installed but that didn't work22:50
Ben64SirClueless: yeah on 12.04 you probably had unity 2d going, and now its trying 3d but not working for.... some reason22:50
SirCluelessi will try compiling the AMD drivers from source again22:50
=== swappermall_ is now known as swappermall
Ben64carlom61: what version ubuntu22:51
Ben64read up what i've been saying to SirClueless22:52
carlom61I do install prop drivers thereafter I cant see anything else than the display background and cant restore Unity22:52
carlom61ah ok22:52
Ben64maybe your drivers aren't actually in use?22:52
carlom61now I have Nouveau and they do work perfectly22:53
Ben64nouveau isn't nvidia22:53
escottjrib, i always just call out to a script as a best practice... i guess i've confused a best practice with a necessity22:54
genii-aroundtcstar: I think you're probably better off to do mail -u <your-username> -t fred@wherever, tina@wherever, etc@wherever -S "Subject"22:54
carlom61yeah I know, I need to keep those opensource drv as the Nvidia break my ubuntu :)22:54
Ben64how are you installing nvidia?22:54

SirCluelessBen64: so even the source AMD drivers don't work any more22:57
SirCluelessBen64: is there a unity log?22:57

jiridocould anyone tell me why firefox mainwindow dont come around when i alt tab between my windows? and what i could do about it.. Im on 12.04. sometimes it goes down besides the clock but at oter times it is on the bar like the rest of windows.. firefox filegetter shows all ok.. i23:00
schweegihello. how can i remove a submitted text in ubuntus pastebin?23:01
SonikkuAmericajirido: What variant of 12.04?23:01
TheLordOfTimeschweegi:  afaik you can't remove it.23:01
nemoSo, I want the patch from https://bugs.launchpad.net/chromebook-arm/+bug/108539223:02
ubottuUbuntu bug 1085392 in Cross distro support for Samsung Chromebook (ARM based) "Merge Chromebook UCM profiles into ALSA packages" [Critical,Triaged]23:02
nemoI'm concerned about enabling all of proposed tho23:02
genii-aroundschweegi: Hopefully it doesn't contain any personal information.23:02
SonikkuAmericaschweegi: You don't.23:02
nemowondering if that's risky for chromebook-arm, and how long it might be in proposed (maybe I can just wait)23:02
schweegiTheLordOfTime: How long is it saved?23:02
jiridoSonikkuAmerica, lubuntu23:02
TheLordOfTimeschweegi:  no clue,23:03
SonikkuAmericajirido: Do you have a window list on your LXDE panel?23:03
SirCluelessoh heavens, i think i entered the twilight zone23:03
schweegigenii-around: true, there some personal information in it :(23:03
jiridoSonikkuAmerica, yes23:03
SirCluelessfragments of my desktop are overlaying my TTY223:03
SonikkuAmericajirido: And Firefox doesn't show up there when you minimize it?23:03
doomsayerHas anyone else been having uninstall issues? I keep getting "ordinal not in range(128)" when I try and reinstall ubuntu.23:03
schweegican i contact canonical to delete it?23:03
genii-aroundschweegi: I'm trying to find out if there are any steps which can be taken23:04
jiridoSonikkuAmerica, no then it goes beside the clock23:04
schweegigenii-around: thanks :) sorry for my poor english.23:04
SonikkuAmericajirido: Well I don't use LXDE. I'm probably going to need a screenshot of what happens.23:05
jiridoSonikkuAmerica, really anoying23:05
jiridoSonikkuAmerica, the icon is between networkmanager and the clock23:05
genii-aroundschweegi: I think the most immediate thing to do is probably email webmaster@ubuntu.com explaining your mistake23:06
SonikkuAmericajirido: That means it showed up in Workspace Switcher.23:06
doomsayerI am having issues reinstalling ubuntu, can someone please help? :)23:07
schweegigenii-around: it's not my mistake, a friend send me his error log which contains personal information about him :( thank you, i try email the webmaster :)23:07
SonikkuAmericajirido: Try right-clicking your LXDE panel and selecting "Add..." Then add a "Window List"23:07
jiridoSonikkuAmerica, i dont really know what you mean but if u mean the one one change desktops with i dont think i have it on the bar/ ok23:07
genii-aroundschweegi: You may also want to visit #canonical-sysadmin and if you ask them nicely they may have someone handy who can remove it immediately.23:08
SonikkuAmericadoomsayer: It sounds like something wasn't done in Unicode (UTF-8) or got corrupted on your ISO image.23:09
doomsayerSeems logical. How would I go about repairing that?23:10
adam__does anybody know how to setup joysticks in wine??23:10
SonikkuAmericajirido: The "Window List" is the place where you can see what windows you have in that workspace. (Like the Windows taskbar)23:10
schweegigenii-around: thank you very much for your help :)23:10
andrebhi all23:10
andrebanyone here using postifx..23:10
SonikkuAmericadoomsayer: Good question. My best guess is to re-download your ISO and write it to a disc or make a new USB image from it23:11
andrebany time i edit my main.cf option smtp_sasl_password_maps23:11
andreband save it23:11
andreband do postfix reload the changes are removed from the file23:11
jiridoSonikkuAmerica, yes i did and now its two windowlists and the watch and that is in middle and all windows are on both but firefox still dont show on alt tab around :(23:11
SonikkuAmericajirido: Oh, you had one before; my bad. Get rid of the one you just added. Did Firefox prematurely shut itself down?23:12
doomsayerSonikkuAmerica: I am currently trying to install Mint via a live CD but wubi is getting in the way. I wish to just completely remove ubuntu out of the way but the uninstall keeps running in to errors.23:12
Ben64doomsayer: we can't help you with mint23:13
SonikkuAmericadoomsayer: It won't uninstall from Windows?23:13
SonikkuAmericaBen64: Mint isn't his problem. Wubi getting in the way of Mint4Win is.23:13
SonikkuAmericaBen64: He's got bad code in Wubi.23:13
doomsayerWhat Sonikku said is correct.23:13
doomsayerAnd I cannot boot into ubuntu.23:14
Ben64well then uninstall it from windows23:14
doomsayerBen64: I am trying but I cannot get past wubi.23:14
SonikkuAmericaBen64: He can't; "ordinal not in range" is blocking him from uninstall.23:14
jiridoSonikkuAmerica, no it has been stable but as i dont want to update it to loose all pluggins that dont keep up with the high updaterate it might be in a state where it has asked to update and i have denied and it still want to restart.. It could be somthing like that could it?23:15
SonikkuAmericadoomsayer: Try opening Explorer, browsing to your C: drive and deleting the "ubuntu" folder.23:15
Ben64then...... use windows to fixmbr, and delete ubuntu23:15
Ben64make sure to fixmbr or you can't boot windows anymore23:15
SonikkuAmericajirido: It could be. But I can't really diagnose problems with Firefox. I use Chrome.23:16
=== adam__ is now known as iRy--
SonikkuAmericadoomsayer: If you have Windows Vista or later, use "bootrec /fixmbr"23:16
doomsayerThank you. the fixmbr was confusing me.23:16
Tex_Nickschweegi:  something to cinsider in the future ... if you use pastebin.com you/he can specify an expiration time23:17
SonikkuAmericajirido: Try logging out and back in, start Firefox, and minimize it. See if it happens again.23:18
Tex_Nickconsider ^23:18
SonikkuAmericajirido: I'll be back, I have to plug in my laptop.23:19
iRy--anybody know how to configure a joystick in wine23:19
jiridoSonikkuAmerica,  Ok Thanks. i guess its this update thing.. i dont know why it want to restart as i dont update it..?? hm23:20
jiridoi restart it to check23:21
jiridosonikkuamerika i did restart it to check and now it works..23:22
JennyBlueBirdhi guys, I'm trying to find my GPU temperature for an nVidia card, but none of the usual ways seem to report it23:22
JennyBlueBirdnvclock, nvidia-settings and lmsesnors all fail to display it23:22
JennyBlueBirdany ideas ?23:22
Ben64what card23:22
JennyBlueBird9600 GSO23:22
Tex_NickiRy : if you don't get an answer here, you might try #winehq23:23
Ben64dunno, it should be working23:23
bin_bashHow much RAM do you guys typcally use after ~4 hours of usage?23:23
JennyBlueBirdif I run nvclock -T  I get:   Error: failed to mmap PMC23:23
jribbin_bash: 32 MB.  What's your real question?23:24
bin_bashthat is my real question23:24
Ben64jrib: thats pretty good23:24
jribBen64: server :)23:24
bpsJennyBlueBird: for lm-sensors did you run "sensors-detect" first23:24
SonikkuAmericajirido: I'm back.23:24
iRy--thx Tex_Nick but nobody is answering there too that why i thought i will try here23:25
bin_bashjrib, what do you have running on there?23:25
Tex_Nickbin_bash : about the same as the first few minutes of usage ờᴗớ23:25
bin_bashTex_Nick, and how much is that?23:25
jribbin_bash: lighttpd, znc, and some python...23:25
JennyBlueBirdbps, yea, and it just gives me cpu and motherboard data23:26
JennyBlueBirdno GPU23:26
Tex_Nickbin_bash i don't think we understand your issue23:28
bin_bashTex_Nick, I don't think you're undetstanding the question23:28
jiridoSonikkuAmerica, thanks for the energy and care sweet! it was what i suspected23:28
TheLordOfTimebin_bash:  your question isn't descriptive enough to allude to why you're asking.23:28
bin_bashTheLordOfTime, the question is literally a survey question23:29
SonikkuAmericajirido: What was?23:29
Tex_Nickbin_bashthat's obvious :)23:29
TheLordOfTime!survey | bin_bash23:29
TheLordOfTimebleh whatever23:29
TheLordOfTimebin_bash:  this probably isn't the best place to have a poll/survey.23:29
bin_bashI'm eally just trying to compare. I feel like my system is using a fuckload of RAM23:30
jiridoThat it waited to restart even i said not to update.. maybe a update of some add-ons.. or whom knows.. :)23:30
TheLordOfTime!language | bin_bash23:30
ubottubin_bash: Please watch your language and topic to help keep this channel family-friendly, polite, and professional.23:30
jiridoSonikkuAmerica, That it waited to restart even i said not to update.. maybe a update of some add-ons.. or whom knows.. :)23:30
nemobin_bash: I think the amount of ram things on your system use depends a great deal on the amount of memory available23:30
jiridoyeahh :)23:30
daftykinsJennyBlueBird: 9600GS? desktop card? maybe it's too new for the standard ways to do it.23:30
nemobin_bash: Firefox for example will use more memory for caching if you have a huge amount of memory, but hardly any at all on my raspberry pi23:30
Coded1anyone tried installing the latest amd catalyst 13.2 beta 3 drivers?  The install fails looking for version.h for me23:31
JennyBlueBirddaftykins, I would have though nvidia-settings would do it at least23:31
JennyBlueBirddaftykins, but yea, maybe23:31
JennyBlueBirddaftykins, though it is a few years23:31
jiridoSonikkuAmerica, But thanks anyway and good night and good luck with helping out here tonight !23:31
TheSovdoes anyone know where i could find the failed login attempts on ssh, its not in my /var/log/syslog23:31
nemobin_bash: on my system where I have 16GiB of RAM, 12½GiB are in use, but 10½GiB of that is caching - so pretty much just letting stuff load fast23:31
SonikkuAmericajirido: You're welcome.23:31
nemobin_bash: which ofc isn't a waste of RAM at all23:32
nemobin_bash: the other 2GiB are mostly minecraft servers ;)23:32
Tex_Nickbin_bash ust "system Monitor" to see what process's are usint the memory23:32
Tex_Nickuse ^23:32
daftykinsJennyBlueBird: tried the terminal 'nvidia-settings -q gpucoretemp' ?23:32
bin_bashnemo, I've got 4gb and with firefox and everyhting I'm using 737mb, but in a few minutes it'll quickly climb to over 1gb23:33
JennyBlueBirddaftykins, yea, it prints 3 blank lines23:33
TheLordOfTimebin_bash:  where're you getting your "used" numbers from?23:33
jribbin_bash: ram is there to be used, "unused ram is wasted ram" is the linux motto23:33
jrib!ram | bin_bash23:34
ubottubin_bash: If you are wondering why some tools report your system has very little free memory, have a look at http://www.linuxatemyram.com/ | A short primer on Linux memory management can be found here: http://sourcefrog.net/weblog/software/linux-kernel/free-mem.html23:34
bin_bashTex_Nick, yeah I have htop. firefox is the worst, wicd, xchat, pdigin, X23:35
bin_bashthe usual23:35
daftykinsJennyBlueBird: are you worried about its' heat or were you just curious?23:35
bin_bashjrib, that's not the linux motto.23:36
JennyBlueBirddaftykins, it does overheat some times and I'm trying to see how hot it runs for games and things where it does not23:36
jribbin_bash: sure it is; it's one of them23:36
bin_bashjrib, no. It is not.23:36
JennyBlueBirddaftykins, I mean I know it likely bails at about 95C , but I'm curious if it is always very close or if its just certain things that push it over the top23:37
jribbin_bash: not literally, no.23:37
chrisancan I install ubuntu 12.10 to harddrive from a 12.04 live cd i made a while back?23:37
TheLordOfTimebin_bash:  htop doesn't reliably show the amount of *actual* ram used.  Did you look at free -m ?23:37
daftykinsJennyBlueBird: yeah i see nvidia.com says the max is 105 C for that card. maybe invest in an aftermarket heatsink+fan assembly?23:37
JennyBlueBirddaftykins, tbh it seems as if theres only one game that causes it to overheat, which it REALLY should not since other more demanding ones work fine23:38
genii-aroundchrisan: Yes, using debootstrap23:38
Tex_Nickbin_bash : firefox can gobble some memory ... right now my firefox is using 243 MiB23:38
JennyBlueBirddaftykins, so I suspect really messed up rendering code23:38
bin_bashyeah firefox is horrible, Tex_Nick23:38
chrisanty genii-around23:38
genii-around!debootstrap | chrisan23:39
ubottuchrisan: debootstrap is used to create a !Debian or Ubuntu base system from scratch, without requiring the availability of !dpkg or !APT. It does this by downloading !.deb files from a mirror site, and carefully unpacking them into a directory you can eventually !chroot into.  See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DebootstrapChroot for more information23:39
chrisansweet thx23:39
daftykinsJennyBlueBird: some just use cards badly, yeah23:40
Tex_Nickbin_bash : as jrib pointed out though ... that's what memory is for23:40
bin_bashTex_Nick, but on boot I shouldn't be using like 300mB that's riduclous23:40
daftykinsJennyBlueBird: have you ever used it under Windows to read temps there?23:40
JennyBlueBirddaftykins, 2nd favourite explanation I have is FUCK YOU NVIDIA AND YOUR BROKEN DRIVERS!23:40
JennyBlueBirddaftykins, don't run windows :)23:40
jribJennyBlueBird: please mind your language here23:41
JennyBlueBirdoh , sorry23:41
JennyBlueBirdI mean, even if the code is bad, the driver should not even let the card get that hot, should it ?23:41
jribbin_bash: 300 MB of 4 GB?  I honestly would not be concerned.  It's totally dependent on the applications you use.  Use htop to track down what's using the most ram and decide if it's not worth it or if there is some bug that makes it use more ram than it should.  Unless you're hitting swap, I wouldn't worry at all about it23:42
daftykinsJennyBlueBird: it'll get close to their maximum then either downclock or crash the game23:42
jhutchins_wkbin_bash: No, you should be using all of your RAM on boot.23:42
bin_bashjhutchins_wk, wat23:42
JennyBlueBirddaftykins, it brings down the card as it is23:42
Tex_Nickbin_bash : that's probably about what this box is using immediately after boot23:42
bin_bashjhutchins_wk, are you retarded23:43
jribbin_bash: have you taken some time to read the links ubottu gave you about how ram is used on ilnux?23:43
escottbin_bash, do you leave the lights on when nobody is in the room?23:43
JennyBlueBirddaftykins, black screen, can't get it back without shutting comp down and letting it cool for a while23:43
Ben64             total       used       free     shared    buffers     cached23:43
Ben64Mem:          7985       7858        127          0        295       514623:43
JennyBlueBirddaftykins, power cycling the PSU dosn't do it either. I literally just have to wait for it to cool when it happens.23:43
Ben64bin_bash: you don't need the attitude, jhutchins_wk is correct23:43
daftykinsJennyBlueBird: daym!23:44
JennyBlueBirddaftykins, yea, I'm starting to think I need to try older drivers or something23:44
escottbin_bash, ram is like a light you cannot turn off. if its on you might as well put someone in the room and use it.23:44
JennyBlueBirdbut as I remember the last gen drivers were not exactly rock solid either23:44
bin_bashescott, sure, if I'm playing minecraft or compiling code23:45
bin_bashbut at idle it shouldn't use much23:45
Ben64no, all the time. read up on how linux uses memory23:45
Ben64it is very well documented23:45
JennyBlueBirdbin_bash, it caches harddrive access, check the +/- buffers line, it gives a better idea of how much is actually used23:45
genii-aroundJennyBlueBird: Are you using something like nvclock to control the fan?23:45
KaiSforzayou guys are obviously misunderstanding WHICH used memory bin_bash is talking about.23:45
JennyBlueBirdgenii-around, no, this started before I even installed it23:46
escottbin_bash, i dont care what you are doing. you are spending money powering that ram. the kernel uses it because to not use it would be a waste.23:46
JennyBlueBirdgenii-around, and it's only in Heroes of Newerth :/23:46
JennyBlueBirdgenii-around, all other games, even more intensive ones, work ok23:46
JennyBlueBirdand turning graphics settings down doesn't resolve the issue23:46
jhutchins_wkKaiSforza: No, bin_bash doesn't understand memory management in linux.  It's not like you get better MPG if you don't use the RAM.23:46
JennyBlueBirdso I assume it is some combination of weirdo rendering code and bad drivers23:46
MartynKeigherhey guys...whats the quick way to enable ssh on a ubuntu desktop?23:46
jrib!ssh | MartynKeigher23:46
ubottuMartynKeigher: SSH is the Secure SHell protocol, see: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SSH for client usage. PuTTY is an SSH client for Windows; see: http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/ for it's homepage. See also !scp (Secure CoPy) and !sshd (Secure SHell Daemon)23:46
genii-aroundJennyBlueBird: Ah, OK. Yeah, sounds just like some freak combination of app and driver or so23:47
escottbin_bash, that 5146 cached can be discarded at any time, but it speeds things up if you happen to hit something in the cache. what you want to ask is free+cached. if that is small you are running out of memory23:47
zenloopHey guys, I have a quick question about repositories and ubuntu.  I am using chef to install my machines and I have fixed the version numbers. I am using a ton of oneiric repositories (oneiric oeiric-{backports|updates} with components main restricted univers multivers,  problem is that packages seem to no longer be available.  It is like a new version has moved into main and the older version disappears.  Is there a component for old23:48
krabadorif casper disables proprietary graphic drivers, how can i build a livecd with working ati drivers?23:48
escottbin_bash, ie the second line of free -m. ignore the first line entirely23:48
KaiSforzajhutchins_wk: sometimes people use /tmp as a ram disk. I do. it uses 4G on my system, so i sometimes i can't use 8G of ram in total, i only can use 4-5. your preconception on what ram usage should look like is just for ubuntu, not for every type of linux. Yes, ram caches and buffers, and that is okay, but the actual used ram shouldn't be full.23:48
krabadormust i install properly ubuntu on a usb pendrive?23:48
jribzenloop: that's how the repositories work, old versions aren't kept around in a component23:48
bin_bashescott, yes, I use conky to report free -m23:48
k1lbin_bash: did you know about: linuxatemyram.com ?23:49
zenloop@jrib: so is the only solution to host my own repository of ubuntu?23:49
KaiSforzabin_bash: also, 380M of ram used is not a lot.23:49
bin_bashKaiSforza, on boot it is23:49
k1lbin_bash: it explains what free displays and what is the sense of that23:49
zenloop@jrib: is there another repository I can reference?23:49
jhutchins_wkKaiSforza: I've been running Linux since about 1995, I've managed six different distributions professionally, and I've probably been working with computers since before bin_bash's parents were born.23:49
Senjaikrabador: no, you should install it improperly23:49
bin_bashthat seems doubtful23:50
jhutchins_wkI've written more documentation that he's read.23:50
Tex_Nickbin_bash : are you experiencing system problems that lead you to suspect memory problems?23:50
=== james is now known as Guest80549
krabadorSenjai, perfect, how can i build a bootable live ubuntu with working ati driver inside?23:50
bin_bashTex_Nick, not especially. Once over 2gb of RAM is being used though, the system slows down considerably23:50
jhutchins_wkbin_bash: I've played Gravity Wars (Asteroids) loaded onto a PDP1 from paper tape.  Round CRT, no keyboard.23:51
Senjaijhutchins_wk: uhmm, stop with the appeal to ethos please. 'Credentials' dont mean anything23:51
PeyamHi, How does outlook work on ubuntu?23:51
SenjaiPeyam: it doesn't. Ubuntu doesn't use outlook. Outlook is a microsoft product23:51
bin_bashjhutchins_wk, that's great. One day, when my children ask me "What's a cool story?" I'll tell them all about you and then say "Now, kids. That's a cool story."23:51
Senjaibin_bash: dont poke at his ego anymore. It might pop and cause a tsunami23:52
k1lbin_bash: as long as there is no swap used that ram usage shouldnt slow the system dosn23:52
bin_bashLOL Senjai23:52
jribzenloop: oneiric-updates and oneiric-security are where you are going to be getting new versions.  I believe the plain "oneiric" should not be touched.  Having said that, you generally want to get things from -security and those versions *can* change23:52
xanguaPeyam: outlook.com works well on any browser23:52
Tex_Nickbin_bash : that would be a cpu usage issue i would think ... again look at "system monitor" to see what process's are eating the cpu23:52
dydzEz2__anyone here have a thinkpad x1 carbon23:52
bin_bashk1l, yeah I'm not real sure why. doesn't really matter though. cpu is fine. but RAM is high at that point23:52
k1lbin_bash: and i dont see the actual issue besides you dont like the technically correct answers23:53
Peyamxangua: hahah I can too go directly to gmail.com23:53
PeyamSenjai: I ment on wine23:53
JennyBlueBirdbin_bash, does it swap ?23:53
xangua!appdb | Peyam23:53
ubottuPeyam: The Wine Application DB is a database of applications and help for !Windows programs that run under !WINE: http://appdb.winehq.org - Join #winehq for application help23:53
bin_bashJennyBlueBird, yeah I have swap on23:53
jribzenloop: with your current strategy, how are you going to ensure security updates?23:53
JennyBlueBirdbin_bash, I meant, does it actually start to swap a lot when you have high memory usage ?23:53
bin_bashJennyBlueBird, yea23:53
SenjaiPeyam: you'd have to go to #winhq, this is an Ubuntu support channel, not a WINE support channel ;)23:53
JennyBlueBirdbin_bash, yea ok, that's not just the buffers and cache then23:54
JennyBlueBirdbin_bash, does it do this just sitting idle you say ?23:54
JennyBlueBirdbecause if so then something in that system is leaking23:54
bin_bashJennyBlueBird, no, it usually doesn't go that high, but I do suspect that firefox is leaking23:54
daftykinsFF is terrible for it23:54
JennyBlueBirdbin_bash, heh, firefox is kinda infamous for it23:55
bin_bashJennyBlueBird, when using minecraft or other java applications, I expect high RAM usage because, well, java23:55
bin_bashit just seems like if I have 4gb it shouldn't slow23:55
