calmNchill@ Atlantic777: this will prolly sound like a dumb question but Im not sure what to select I'm trying to install server 12.04 LTS. what should I select here?01:18
ac_slaterjrib: Specifically libxcursor and libxext. IF you look at the package contents, you can see the 32bit and 64bit versions to the same place - creating conflicts.01:18
Atlantic777calmNchill: select option to use iso image and then just browse and choose iso you have.01:18
jribac_slater: can you give details?01:19
ac_slaterjrib: Sure. In distros like Arch or Gentoo, 32bit libs go into `/lib32/` and 64bit libs into `/lib`. I'm sure ubuntu does something like this with the packages it pulls with ia32-libs... but the two I mentioned arent in ia32-libs. I can install them manually but they conflict with the 64bit libs :(01:20
jribac_slater: right, give these details.  I don't have a 12.04 install01:21
ac_slaterI observed this with 12.10 also.01:21

dr_willisnot sure how you would mess up mime types ststem wide..06:30
dwardxangua ya thanks, i know the package exists. but it's in the sam slot as initramfs-tools. which i don't want to uninstall. i would like to use dracut to compile ram images for other systems and initramfs-tools when I update my kernel on this system06:31
dr_willisHyperiant:  i see people in here with the same problem several times a day/week.. sadly06:31
dr_williscompiz/unity dosent properly  see/use the  3d drivers so only loads part of the  desktop06:32
HyperiantThing is, it worked fine on 32-bit06:32
Vivekanandahello everyone and dr_willis06:32
HyperiantI reinstalled Ubuntu as 64-bit and only then did it start doing this06:32
VivekanandaI have a friend currently installing ubuntu and he is running windows 64 bit but when he is trying to install ubuntu it is asking him to download 32 bit06:33
Vivekanandawhy could this be?06:33
dr_willisVivekananda:  what is asking him?06:33
dr_willishe can go  to the ubuntu.com site/servers and download whatever one he wants..06:33
HyperiantJust download 64-bit anyway, the 32-bit is only recommended on the website by default06:33
HyperiantBecause most PCs still use it06:34
Vivekanandadr_willis: He is trying to install ubuntu using windows installer and tried to download the 64 bit installer but it asked him to get the 32 bit. I am not near him and on top of that he is not very tech savvy so please bear with me06:34
VivekanandaI will try to ask him and get the answers06:34
HyperiantOh, wubi06:34
dr_willisVivekananda:  the windows installer is using WUBI.. thats 32bit only  i belive06:34
dr_willisi  suggest NOT using wubi06:35
dr_willisif you must use wubi.. then do as it suggests06:35
HyperiantWubi is only if he wants to dual-boot, and in a very limited way at that06:35
ubottuWubi is an Ubuntu installer for Windows users that allows you to install and uninstall Ubuntu like a Windows application, in a simple and safe way. http://wubi-installer.org/support.php and https://wiki.ubuntu.com/WubiGuide for troubleshooting. Please  file bugs at http://launchpad.net/wubi/+filebug. For Ubuntu Oneiric/11.10 http://releases.ubuntu.com/oneiric/wubi.exe06:35
VivekanandaI knew it was wubi!! but I got confused when he said that06:35
aeon-ltddoes wubi get around secure booting? if not there's no point in wubi06:36
Vivekanandait is allowing him a dual boot so I thought wubi must now have a full fledged installer and I did not know about it06:36
dr_williswubi uses the windows stuff to doal boot.. not the same as normal install06:36
dr_williswubi does not have a full fledged installer.06:36
dr_willisit does a 'wubi boot' ;)06:37
Vivekanandadr_willis: Now the crux of the matter is that he is has to run a medical program and that is very resource intensive but limitations of using linux06:38
Vivekanandamedical software I mean06:38
Vivekanandaand he mistakenly installed 12.1 and it was crashing a lot for him and he said it is very slow too06:38
dr_willis12.10 is very stable and not slow for me...06:39
dr_willisinstalled 12.10 HOW exacctly?06:39
Vivekanandanow I figure he installed 12.1 using wubi. I advised him to try06:39
dr_willisa wubi install will be slower then a full install06:39
Vivekananda12.04 ( that is the lts too and I thought it would be good advise for him)06:39
Vivekanandahe is trying to do that06:39
ch1p53tur having an argument??06:40
dr_willisdepending on the software - he may  just want to try Lubuntu inside virtualbox.. if that software  is the only thing he needs to run06:40
dr_willisand dependoing on what the software is doing..06:40
Vivekanandait is a brain mapping medical software06:41
dr_willisso it has special hardware is uses?06:42
Vivekanandaand not possible for a virtual box coz the06:42
Vivekanandahere it is http://surfer.nmr.mgh.harvard.edu/fswiki/SystemRequirements06:42
dr_willisid say try a full install of 12.04 then.06:42
dr_willishe may want to use lubuntu - since it will be less resource  intensive06:43
Vivekanandait requires as you can see what it does and my friend has 3 gigs of ram and - it's running intel core 2 duo06:43

Vivekanandaif he has that recover partition along with windows ?07:06
gabkdllyVivekananda: Wait, now I am confused, you are doing a wubi install, but you are doing something with a recovery partition ?07:07
mandoguitVivekananda:   http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wubi_%28Ubuntu_installer%29        the wubi install should not touch the recovery/windows install partition as it installs all relevent software into the main windows partition.... as far as windows is concerned it's just another program along with associated files that has been installed inside of it07:10

kimk_the problem is that my taskbar icons completely corrupt (into a weird mess of pixels) after banshee has been running for random number of hours.07:13
Vivekanandagabkdlly: No. I recommended my friend to go for a full fledged fresh install of ubuntu using a install cd. For this he will need to  (as you know) repartition the drive and shrink the windows partition to create space for ubuntu07:14
kimk_i've googled it a few times and came across a lone post that said something about a package version needing to be rolled back in ubuntu, but i've since then not been able to find the post again.07:14
VivekanandaNow I have an old computer and have no clue how the partitions are arranged in a windows 7 computer and also how the recovery space is arranged. I have a simple xp computer so I just shrink the xp partition and install ubuntu07:14
Vivekanandabut not sure how this will work in his case so I wanted to ask you guys to guide me07:15

StephenSas xfce have that top think which would make maximize the same as on gnome11:49
k1lStephenS: if you want to change nearly everything about unity it could be better to use a desktop that comes with that changes out of the box11:49
k1l!lubuntu | StephenS11:49
ubottuStephenS: lubuntu is Ubuntu with LXDE instead of !GNOME as desktop environment, which makes it extremely lightweight. See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Lubuntu - /join #lubuntu for lubuntu support.11:49
StephenSWhich desktop?11:49
k1llantizia: i dont know if there is a special business channel. you can ask here11:50
lantiziaOK well my question is... does the "Business Desktop Remix 12.04 LTS" expire in any way - is it a trial of some sort... or will it work even if my organization doesn't decide to buy a support contract?11:51
SeveasStephenS: that's not changeable11:51
StephenSis there cmd line for lubuntu instyall?11:51
k1lStephenS: apt-get install lubuntu-desktop11:53
StephenSThanks, and if Im not happy I still have gnome so I can easily switch :) and lubuntu use less resources then gnome right?11:54

priteshhey guys, anyone please tell me, what will be the minimum size of ubuntu installation with XFCE4 ?? currently i am at 941MB after removing most of things12:13
cfhowlettpritesh, still wrestling with this I see.  suggest you look on the minimal install option ...12:13
priteshcfhowlett, i installed with minimal and previously size was 1.2GB, then i trimmed it.12:14
cfhowlettpritesh, one step ahead of me then ...12:15
elkyYou seem to have the answer for your own question.12:16
priteshcfhowlett, is there such files that i will delete and will not effect the system ?12:16
jribpritesh: can I ask why you care about size so much?12:17
cfhowlettpritesh, as minimal footprint is the goal, I'd say you could delete extraneous desktop environments and themes ... but I've never done it.12:17

kvarleypritesh: You should use the Ubuntu Mini iso and try that or head over to #archlinux12:22
priteshcfhowlett,  also i deleted /var/cache/* and /var/log/*12:22
khaije1are the alternate install cd's any different than the server install cd's?12:25
khaije1I'm looking for as base an image as possible... does ubuntu still do jeos?12:25
jribpritesh: I agree with cfhowlett.  You should take a look at the distros dedicated to being small (like damnsmalllinux).  At the very least, you could take a look at DSL and compare what packages you have on your minimal ubuntu that DSL omit12:25
cfhowlettkhaije1, yes.  server is a different ISO than desktop.12:25

khaije1cfhowlett: I'm wondering about server vs alternate12:26
cfhowlettkhaije1, alternate ISO is a desktop version with a non-gui installer.12:26

DJoneskhaije1: The alternate install doesn't exist from 12.10, you'd have to use 12.04 or earlier if you wanted that option12:26

HeKToNguys general question what do you think of chromium ?13:08

jrib_raven: and if that doesn't work. You *can* control mplayer with commands (for example using a fifo) in a programmatic way.  You could modify your script to control mplayer instead of just dropping the url in a playlist13:14

bviktorhi, is there a way to customize the banner text in the ubuntu login screen? it's "ubuntu 12.10" by default14:39
=== iwannaflingpoo is now known as sanman
theadminbviktor: That's not a text, it's a logo.14:40
bviktorok, it's also fine if i can add something below it, is it possible?14:41
theadminI don't find a way to customize it. You may need to replace some file, but it's not obvious which.14:41
bviktori'm looking at /lib/plymouth/themes atm14:42
theadminbviktor: What's Plymouth got to do with that? The login screen is lightdm. Plymouth provides the splash on boot, with orange dots14:42
Weeeeezzltake a look at the "grub customizer" maybe14:42
theadminWeeeeezzl: Has nothing to do with GRUB either.14:42
guigouzubuntu 12.04.2 (with the latest kernel) does not boot on a macbook pro with nvidia 320m if I load the nvidia driver, any tips ?14:43

jjman6_I'm running Kubuntu 12.10 and i have been having some strange issues. Namely the system keeps shutting itself down randomly. Not crashing per se. its actually calling a system shutdown from root somehow. Feels like a virus to me Any thoughts14:44
theadmindanman1453: Does it have a login manager?14:44
Weeeeezzlcan't you use it to replace the boot screen? idk.. just wanted to say something :)14:44
theadmindanman1453: Well, which one? On the default Ubuntu setup that'd be lightdm, so "sudo restart lightdm" will do the trick. If you're running some other one, modify the command appropriately14:44
danman1453thats what i did.14:45
danman1453i have 12.0414:45
bviktortheadmin, i want to display the image version number, so it needs  to be changed constantly, hence i'd prefer a way to display text instead, but if that's not possible, i'll stick with this, thanks14:45
danman1453just checking. thanks theadmin14:45
theadminbviktor: Hm... There may be a way to render text from command-line into an image, and stick that into cron...14:45
bviktornah, i think i'll just have a generic image with editable text and modify it each time...14:46

tgm4883StephenS, AFAIK, removing the hibernate file will remove the windows hibernation state16:15
jribgnuskool: the issue is likely that skype is 32bit but kc102 does not have multiarch enabled... I have no idea why that page is suggesting things like pinning16:15
tgm4883so the next time you boot into windows, it won't be hibernated, it will be a fresh boot16:15

bvm1228no i want to be able to boot into windows16:28
jribbvm1228: if you don't want ubuntu at all anymore, then you shouldn't use grub as your bootloader anymore.  You can ask ##windows for help on fixing your mbr16:29
kc102Okay so I ran sudo dpkg -r skype16:29
kc102Will that remove all the skype crap sitting around?16:29
jribkc102: why?16:29
bvm1228but i still get the grub error16:29
jribbvm1228: because you haven't restored the windows mbr16:30
kc102Because I thought that's how I'd remove the old skype repositories.16:30
bvm1228i have tried bootrec.exe /fixboot16:30
jribkc102: it's not.  Edit your /etc/apt/sources.list and look for the cdrom repositories and the specific skype repository that you got an error about (you should *not* remove the canonical partner repo)16:30
SonikkuAmericabvm1228: Before that you have to run [ bootrec /fixmbr ]16:31

SolarisBoycschneid: is your $SHELL bash? - i think cron's default is sh although you do have a shebang...16:57
ActionParsniphotmedal: try setting swappness lower, or use a lighter desktpo like LXDE16:58
cschneidSolarisBoy: it honestly doesn't matter, I'm not using any bash features.  But anyway, it looks like cron isn't even triggering my crontab entry16:58

ActionParsnipalimj: lxde is fantastic, these days I just run Fluxbox with xcompmgr so I can run docky :)17:04
jpmh1SmokeyD:  try using unetbootin - it certainly allows it on a 2G stick - I have never heard of a 1.9G one17:05
scampbellbtw, in the original debian  login does indeed refer to shadow and that source package exists.17:06
tgm4883scampbell, 'apt-get source login' works for me (downloads shadow source). Did you disable the srouce repos?17:06
SmokeyDjpmh1: all the sitcks I have that list 2Gb are actually 1.9Gb. I guess this is the difference between 1000MB in a GB versus 1024MB in a GB17:06

n000bllutz never set one empty is not accepted17:28
llutzn000b: so see ActionParsnip , sudo passwd username17:28

ubottuThe kernel team supply continuous mainline kernel builds which can be useful for tracking down issues or testing recent changes in the Linux kernel. More information is available at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Kernel/MainlineBuilds19:49
Shutterstromusr13, I also read that the lifetime of an ssd is shorter if it's going to write a lot. and therefore might be better in a client. but it all depends on how much the server is reading and writing.19:49

tgm4883!rkhunter | gustav_20:39
gustav_emjay25: Probably. I don't know how those work.20:39
twist3dgustav_, try rkhunter and run clamav from ~20:40
emjay25gustav_, install rkhunter20:40
tgm4883although running rkhunter requires a bit of knowledge about how it works and false positives20:40
gustav_Problem is. I don't want a software to solve it. Because software can always be compromised.20:40

tgm4883gustav_, source?20:41
SolarisBoygustav_: the idea there is to have a set of tools that don't rely on shared libraries like on a usb20:41
gustav_And/or Norton AV.20:41
tgm4883gustav_, source please20:41
SolarisBoygustav_: that set of tools you should trust - so you have to use software somewhere anyway.20:41
gustav_tgm4883: I have to do some googling. It was a while back.20:41
ubottupittore68: No warez here! This is not a file sharing channel (or network); read the channel topic. If you're looking for information about me, type « /msg ubottu !bot ». If you're looking for a channel, see « /msg ubottu !alis ».20:42
tgm4883gustav_, and please no sources of instances where the software ate itself. As that isn't compromised software, it's bad definition testing20:42
SolarisBoythats not going to be hard to find if you talking about norton/mcaffee20:43
gustav_tgm4883: The thing it happened on my computer. IDK where the source is. I know it has happened more publicly. Google yourself.20:43
=== qos|away is now known as qos
twist3dgustav_, it is possible for rootkits to hide bad stuff from your anti-virus... but I have never heard of any of the companies you listed releasing compromised software from the official source20:43
twist3dgustav_, now if you torrent your anti-virus....20:43
tgm4883gustav_, no. You said it happened, so source it20:43
gustav_twist3d: That's not what I mean. I mean viruses disable the AV software.20:43
gustav_Or disable rkhunter.20:43
twist3dgustav_, hence the rkhunter recommendation20:44
SolarisBoygustav_: gustav_: the idea there is to have a set of tools that don't rely on shared libraries like on a usb20:44
gustav_Like I said, I need a non-tool solution. rkhunter can be subverted in a similar fashion.20:44
selena2013upgraded ram is faster now20:44
tgm4883gustav_, that isn't what I'd call compromised AV. But yea, I've seen a virus disable the software before (usually it just wrecks the stack so the AV can't start)20:44
gustav_I bet a lot of trojan or rootkit installing people know about rkhunter.20:44
tgm4883gustav_, you don't know how rkhunter works though20:45
Symyonhi guys20:45
gustav_tgm4883: What do you mean?20:45
SolarisBoygustav_: no - if your tools dont rely on shared libs are statically compiled (im sure rkhunter is one that you can compile and drop on a usb) then they can't be affected by some system issues20:45
gustav_tgm4883: I'm reading the list of what it does right now.20:45
SymyonI'm new to Linux, how can I install mono on Ubuntu 10.04?20:45
gustav_SolarisBoy: Shared libs is the least problem.20:45
SolarisBoygustav_: so usually people who have your fear - do just that - create a usb with their tools20:45
SolarisBoygustav_: no it's the most of it...20:46
coopsquick question: best channel for ubuntnu on macbooks?20:46
SolarisBoygustav_: and and dependancies to an installed system -20:46
gustav_If the kernel is compromised shared libs don't matter.20:46
Jordan_USymyon: I'm pretty sure it's installed by default.20:46
tgm4883gustav_, I mean, I can write a program that checks a list of files against a known good MD5SUM list and doesn't touch the system at all. You can know how it works and not be able to compromise it20:46
Jordan_Ucoops: This one.20:46
SolarisBoygustav_: if your running a trusted binary of rkhunter from your usb which is statically compiled how will it be affected ?20:46
