kriskropdSonikkuAmerica: I forewarned that I was not really following00:00
lopBen64: unfortunately is the same, was it all written well up there ?00:00
CrownWheelBen64, I don't get a grub (or boot:) prompt.  I do from the Live USB stick...00:00
CrownWheel(I mean a boot: prompt.  Close paren... )00:00
kriskropdTiitus: okay, so your hardware works00:01
Ben64CrownWheel: well its installed now, so you must have grub (mash shift key to see it during boot)00:01
kriskropdTiitus: you can chroot into your system and manipulate grub from there00:01
CrownWheelah.  shift key.  thanks.00:01
Tiituskriskropd: what should i search for a guide like that, to "chroot"00:02
SonikkuAmericaBen64: Mash it? I didn't think we had to be so violent.00:02
=== daniel is now known as Guest55402
CrownWheelBen64, score.  Yes, kbd works in grub prompt.00:02
CrownWheelSonikkuAmerica, oh, it be mashed.00:02
kriskropdTiitus: just google for "fixing grub via chroot" or something - i gtg00:02
Tiituskriskropd: ty00:02
SonikkuAmericaCrownWheel: Well, now that SHIFT is a bunch of plastic shards... we now know that works at least.00:02
SonikkuAmerica*that IT works00:03
CrownWheeldon't worry.  this keyboard has a redundant shift key over on the right.  I'll be ok.00:03
Ben64CrownWheel: you could try booting into text mode from grub, see if you can type there00:03
CrownWheelSo...now what?  "recovery mode"? I don't actually know what that laods.00:03
ubottuTo start your system in text-only mode append 'text' (without the quotes) to the kernel line in the grub menu. You can access the grub menu by pressing Esc (Grub legacy) or Shift (Grub2) during boot. For more info see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BootOptions#Text%20Mode00:03
maestrojedI have been trying to get my audio working since I upgraded to Ubuntu12. I now can see my sound card as an option in System Settings. The Analog output works. The digital does not. It doesn't really let me select it. I ran pacmd list-sinks from the CLI and I see 3 sinks, none of which are my digital out. Any suggestions?00:03

CrownWheelSuperGauntlet, now, somebody with a better memory will have to tell you which /etc/network thing to edit to set it to where it should be.00:10

maestrojedSonikkuAmerica In the options of output devices, there is my sound card analog and my sound card digital. The analog works, The digital one is listed but I can't really select it. alsamixer will work on analog, makes no mention of digital00:11

paul_MoPac, It's really the only thing that shows up in a normal boot.02:09

m8pp1eygood evening; has anyone used playonlinux to play windws version of fallout new vegas??02:17
MoPacpaul_: If there's no repair mode with your current installer, and you can't boot the OS, then you need to mount your Ubuntu filesystem somehow to repair it.  The easiest way to do this is to use a live CD/USB .  From there, you can bind actions to happen in your normal filesystem (an example is http://askubuntu.com/questions/28099/how-to-restore-a-system-after-accidentally-removing-all-kernels )02:17
MoPacpaul_: Another option that you might have is to try to mount your Ubuntu filesystem partition in Windows using an ext2 driver like ext2fsd.  If your linux filesystem is ext2, then it can read and write.  With ext3 it can read and force write.  I'm not sure what the score is with ext4 or btrfs02:18
paul_MoPac, How do I mount it?02:19
paul_MoPac, I think I just want to grab some files off of it and then install using a live usb.02:19

bcbc2paul_: what are you trying to do?02:31
MoPacbcbc2: paul_ is trying to recover an unbootable Ubuntu installation after he installed some kind of kde02:32
wilee-nileebcbc2, It is nice to see you here I direct people here at times to the UF for help on issues on wubi. :)02:32
bcbc2hey wilee-nilee :)02:32
MoPacbcbc2: he can't get past boot; gets only an orange asterisk. So proximately what I'm trying to help him do is mount that filesystem somehow so he can try to repair it02:32
MoPacbcbc2: I've suggested putting ext2fsd on Windows and seeing if he can mount the file or partition... he doesn't have a live CD/DVD/USB handy with Linux on it02:33
paul_bcbc2, I fucked it up somehow, I thought it might be because of a package I installed but then I read that hard shutting it down (whatever that term is) could ruin the system. I think that might be what happened02:33
asdfkdsWould anyone mind helping me out with something?02:34
bazhangpaul_, no cursing here02:34
asdfkdsI somehow disabled the unity interface02:34
asdfkdsThe taskbar is gone02:34
bazhangasdfkds, ask an actual question with details02:34
bcbc2paul_: I'd start by running chkdsk /f from windows. That's the host filesystem and it rules out or corrects corruption due to hard shutdown02:34
asdfkdsI did this while selecting an option in compiz... How would I re enable it?02:34
bcbc2paul_: after that, if you still have issues, you might have to fsck the root.disk, but that requires a CD/USB02:35
paul_bazhang, sorry :(02:35
asdfkdsThe unity interface, the taskbar, all that business. How do I re enable it?02:35
paul_bcbc2, I'm just going to grab files and delete the install.02:36
asdfkdsbazhang, would you happen to know anything about compiz disabling taskbars or anything? or how to re enable them?02:36
bazhangasdfkds, this was after checking something in ccsm?02:36
bcbc2paul_: I've used ext2read to get readonly access to the root.disk from windows: http://sourceforge.net/projects/ext2read/files/02:36
MoPacasdfkds: do you have the ccsm application?02:36
asdfkdsUnchecking precisely. It said something about disabling nautlius...something something. And yes I do02:36
MoPacasdfkds: So you should be able to start ccsm, then click on Unity and re-check it from inside the plugin screen02:37
bazhangasdfkds, why not launch ccsm and uncheck them one by one, unless you can remember which exact feature you enabled02:37
asdfkdsIt's actually something I UN checked. In a pop up.02:37
paul_bcbc2, thanks for the link to that program, worked well! Off to find a flash drive!02:42
bcbc2paul_: great!02:42
MoPacbcbc2: You wouldn't happen to have any expertise with apt-preferences, would you?02:43
bcbc2MoPac: nope02:43
MoPacSigh.  Dying to figure out how to increase a repository's priority and leave the universe version lower02:44
bcbc2MoPac: don't you just make the version higher in the ppa?02:45
MoPacbcbc2: it's a "lower" version than the universe one, so apt-get is obsessed with using the universe version02:46
Tiitusguys how come it's so freaking complicated to get a live usb to work for god sakes, ive tried 3 different programs and nothing seems to work, I'm trying to get fedora going but my servers have cd rom only, can't use dvds and it seeems usb is failing too02:46
paul_How would I do a network install?02:46
Tiitusfedora is 900mb and won't fit on a cd, so i need someone to help me mount a live usb correctly bcause whatever im doing is clearly not working - thank you02:47
wilee-nileeTiitus, have you tried the fedora usb loader download https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/How_to_create_and_use_Live_USB02:48
ChogyDanTiitus: are there any errors?02:48
Tiitusno errors, it just won't load from the usb even when it's chosen as the first boot02:49

bcbc2MoPac: sorry can't help. I've pinned packages using synaptic before, but it doesn't apply to apt-get02:51
paul_DarkDAddyT, Have you configured your boot sequence in the bios. Make sure your pen drive shows up as the first device.02:52
debiantoruserAlso, is there any packages like webmin?02:52
Tiituswilee-nilee: not quite sure how to get there i guess, let me try the loader first i'll see if that works02:52
DarkDAddyTpaul: of course02:52

Tiituswilee-nilee: yes02:54
debiantoruserubottu, only zentyal? why webmin doesn't submitted?02:54
ubottudebiantoruser: I am only a bot, please don't think I'm intelligent :)02:54
debiantoruserbazhang,  only zentyal? why webmin doesn't submitted?02:55
bazhang!webmin | debiantoruser02:55
ubottudebiantoruser: webmin is no longer supported in Debian and Ubuntu. It is not compatible with the way that Ubuntu packages handle configuration files, and is likely to cause unexpected issues with your system.02:55
wilee-nileeTiitus, Cool, we want to bypass the bios, your computer has a boot from menu that can be prompted with the right key or keys pressed at powering on, you just have to find what it is. I will google your computer model to find out if you like.02:55

When I get a new computer I just power on and starting with one end of the f keys just sweep left or to the right to see which one is the key for the menu, if I can't find it on the web.  I think the problem with using the bios is fast boot setups which don't see cd's or usb at times.03:04

litropyIf I put my Ubuntu box between my modem and my router (2 NICs), is it any use to try and use HD caching for better performance? Seems like I can't effectively stream Netflix and watch Youtube at the same time, even though I have bandwidth to burn. I've tried QOS within the router, and it didn't do much.03:51
holsteinTechieOfficer: i just started using it.. next time you want to do anything, try and do it in the terminal.. simple file manipulation. irc chat.. downloading a file.. whatever03:52
twist3dlitropy, can you explain that a little further... I doubt the router is adding that much overhead when repackaging the frames to cause any significant delay.  What type of router?03:53
holsteinlitropy: i would do more testing.. youtube is using flash. could have nothing to do with your networking or speeds03:53
TechieOfficerholstein: I can do basic things, but researching each thing I do takes longer than reading a full guide.03:56
litropytwist3d, holstein, it's a D-Link DIR-655. I can watch both at the same time, it's just slow. I was just using that as an example. Essentially, Netflix + anything = slowness, or, for instance, when I'm downloading ubuntu via torrent, the network just clogs up. Netflix trickles, so does the torrent.03:57
holsteinTechieOfficer: there are plenty of "guides".. depending on what you are doing, none should go out of date too fast. still, i would suggest learning by doing.03:57

holsteinL8D: i would test as another user, and go from there04:04
holsteinsergy: you have the ubuntu-desktop metapackage installed?04:04

L8DBut, can you upload your /etc/alternatives/x-cursor-theme if you're running ubuntu/debian?04:08

holsteinL8D: when i look in /etc/alternatives i have no "x-cursor-theme" there04:11
sergyhostein Let me try ..04:11
FsmvOr alternatively, other ideas on fixing the sound issue.04:11
L8Dtwist3d: That's when I first found out. And then, later when updating, I came to it as a problem.04:11
holsteinFsmv: i would try a newer kernel from a live CD.. then you dont "Break" anything testing04:11
litropytwist3d, it's an odd setup. Two DIR-655s. I'm in a huge house, so I have a modem connected to a DIR-655#1 router, and since the DIR-655#2's software doesn't support wireless repeating, and can't be flashed with, for instance, dd-wrt, I've got an ubuntu box receiving my DIR-655#1's wireless signal, and then it sends the DIR-655#2.04:11
twist3dL8D, did you reboot prior to running the command..  have you tried re-downloading and re-installing the theme?04:12
L8Dholstein: Can you even run the code: "sudo update-alternatives --config x-cursor-theme"?04:12
Fsmvholstein: Can I just install newer kernels while on a live CD? Don't you have to restart and lose everything in the RAM for that?04:13
L8Dtwist3d: Yes I have...But so far, it doesn't seem like the theme caused the probelm. X-cursor-theme is a standard in debian and ubuntu04:13
twist3dlitropy, are you using ipv4/ipv6 packet kernel forwarding or are you manually routing all traffic to the second router04:13
holsteinFsmv: no, but you should find live CD's with different kernels.. i try older ones too04:14

txt2311holstein: Ok. Thanks04:18
twist3dlitropy, so you actually sharing your ubuntu's box's internet connection with router #2 , which then forwards all traffic on router #2's network through the ubuntu box's internet connection to router #1?04:18
litropytwist3d, correct.04:18
holsteintxt2311: http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/releases/edgy/ for example04:19
twist3dlitropy, oh my.  Ok. so, go to your ubuntu's box and run a speedtest at speedtest.net04:20

sergyholstein: no sudo dpkg-reconfigure lightdm didnt work now it shows: starting web server apache2  [OK] then blank line and [OK] and cursor goes under second [OK]04:23
litropytwist3d, same for this box I'm on now, connected to RT#204:24
twist3dok so what your doing is you are routing all traffic across a wireless nick on your ubuntu box.  Your internet connection does not matter if you are processing a large amount of data across a NIC that cannot handle the traffic.04:24
sergyholstein: And it frezes :|04:24
twist3dlitropy, regardless of what you pay for, router 2 will never get any more bandwidth than the ubuntu box can support04:24
holsteinsergy: how did it not work? did it offer to reconfigure the login manager? can you get into x?04:25
twist3dif you do choose to run in this configuration, you need to run cable from your ubuntu box to router 1 and then cable from your ubuntu box to router 2.  You can check the performance increase by running a cable from your ubuntu box to router 1 and re run the speed test04:25
twist3dlitropy, I have seen dramatic speed increases when its going across a wire.  If you do not want to run cable there are other alternatives like adapters that route traffic across your home's power connection.  You can find them online easily.04:26

sergyholstein: strange04:27
holsteinsergy: what is it? when you ask for the reonfiguration of the login manager? when you are logging in? when?04:27
twist3dlitropy, it routes alot more than just video, remember every packet it receives, normally two more are transmitted.  1.5mb isnt that much when it comes to video, hence the industry's move away from T-1 for commercial circuits.  If want you want to see everything thats actually being passed... sudo tcpdump -i INTERFACE04:28

wilee-nileeClientAlive, you need to chroot to it to change operating system settings, otherwise a live cd gives you the ability to pull stuf out like a backup05:40
wilee-nilee!chroot }05:41
ClientAlivewilee-nilee: I'm redoing the computer. Have all my backups but am needing to tear down one last volume group (the one the old system is installed on) the pv after that then the vg.05:42
ClientAlivestill requires chroot or is there an alternative?05:42

ClientAliveoh cool. thx05:43
wilee-nileeClientAlive, chroot has a few different uses, but from a live cd it allows yopu to run the OS as if you were booted into it.05:44
ClientAliveright on05:45
ClientAliveI don't remember doing it the way I see on that ubuntu page though (don't recall anything about debootstrap when I did a gentoo install)05:45

wilee-nileejohngilbrough, Go to the #freenode channel tell them and they will send you a message to your registered email05:48
ClientAlivethat's too confusing. Isn't there some boot cd that just does it for you?05:48
johngilbroughThank you will ---05:48
ClientAliveall I need to do is run like 3 commands against the installed system (but with it not booted up or mounted)05:49
wilee-nileeClientAlive, here is a cheat, this is for chrooting in to change grub it is one single command check it out. http://howtoubuntu.org/how-to-repair-restore-reinstall-grub-2-with-a-ubuntu-live-cd/05:49

wilee-nileesame chroot it sets you as root in the OS05:50
Cyclohexaneis there a limit on rm -rf file*? like 15k might cause a problem? lol05:51
ClientAlivewhat would I mount in my case though? For me it is raid across 3 disks, then lvm from vol group to logical vol (the system itself is installed on a logical volume).05:52
ClientAliveI don't think ti05:52
ClientAliveit's gonna be anything like /dev/sdax for me05:53
wilee-nileeCyclohexane, lol you can ran that command in the right way a wipe everything05:53
wilee-nileeClientAlive, I'm not familiar with other then msdos setups05:54
ClientAliveoh, ok05:54
SwedeMikeCyclohexane: yes, usually it doesn't expand into an infinitely long list of files. limit differs between shells I'd imagine.05:54
ClientAlivemaybe I'lll just /dev/zero it far enough in on each disk to wipe out all that accounting data stuff05:55

caffinei have a video capture device attached via USB. it's kinda working with mplayer with "mplayer tv:// -tv driver=v4l2:input=0:norm=ntsc", but when i add audio, it gets skippy and slows and speeds the video. was looking at avconv, but it wants a device (right?)  how do i find the /dev where the capture device has been added?05:59
MrHanjrahhello, i created PXE server for ubuntu 12.04 installation, and i am trying to start the ubuntu installer in VMware (host machine is Windows 8), after the kernel loads, it throws me to the (initramfs) error with BusyBox error,06:00
MrHanjrahsame PXE server hosts Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.0 and Fedora 18, which can boot properly and the installer starts normally06:01
wooMrHanjrah: do you need to mod the .iso?06:01
wooMrHanjrah: sorry 'Modify' the grub from raw iso?06:02
BigWigSo I installed Linux Mint. However, when I restart it takes me to the Windows Boot Loader instead of Grub. I only have a 128mb flash drive, how do I fix this?06:02
MrHanjrahand yes, the srever itself is Arch Linux box06:02

psil0cybinHey guys06:02
psil0cybini have a quick question06:03
psil0cybinim running unity2d, and im trying to get the top panel to be transparent, is there anyway06:03
MrHanjrahwoo: I am not sure if i need to modify the grub entry because other OS iso's boot properly06:03
psil0cybinI just upgraded drivers from additional drivers, but it says I have 3D support, but i am not able to run unity 3d06:03
wooMrHanjrah: is it install on the Arch box? or is it raw?06:04
witedsgreetings i was wondering i have changed a few things on my distro and if i update to the newest version i will have to remove it again what are the adverse affects fro not updating with new distro releases06:05
MrHanjrahwoo: ok, i'll tell the scenerio, I have 4 Operating system ISO's (rhel6, fedora18, ubuntu 12.04, Lubuntu 12.04) which are on the Arch box as is it (in ISO format) and which are mounted via fstab (so that they get mounted automatically on every reboot), i have Syslinux packages which is use as a menu for PXE server, and all the MOUNTED iso's are shared via nfs06:07
wilee-nileewiteds, your description would be more helpful if you were specific for example what release are you running and what apps.06:07
wilee-nileeor what changes06:07
jonyhow can I uninstall libreoffice 4 and goback to the one in ubuntu's repository?06:07
MrHanjrahrhel6 and Fedora18 are configured the same way as ubuntu and Lubuntu 12.04 but the problem is that both rhel and fedora iso's boot properly in a VM but *ubuntu iso's put me at the (initramfs) prompt06:08
wooMrHanjrah: could you steal an fstab from a live ubuntu session?06:08
MrHanjrahwoo: already on it06:08
wilee-nileejony, Does it show in the software center, how did you install it?06:08
wooMrHanjrah: do the fstabs match the arch?06:09
witedswell lubuntu 12.10 i removed things like chrome browser if i update to 13.04 when it comes out i usualy  have to do it by disk and install it so the lubuntu-desktop and all the extra stuff i dont realy want is reinstalled06:09
witedsis there any downsides to not updating with your distribution06:09
MrHanjrahwoo: and booting directly from ubuntu iso boots fine in a VM06:09
jonywilee-nilee, I downloaded from the libreoffise site, unpacked, had many deb files, then: sudo dpkg -i *.deb06:10
wilee-nileewiteds, there is a end of life on all releases as of now, after EOL you will have the security updates and others as well.06:10
witedsok so you can only go so far that helps thanks06:11
wooMrHanjrah: and its not the virtual disk grub messing with you then; is the vmware code?06:11
wilee-nileejony, Does it show in the ubuntu software center?06:12
jonyyes, in the history all those packages06:12
MrHanjrahwoo: its VMware Workstation 906:12
wilee-nileewiteds, I left out the NO security updates is what I meant06:12
jonywilee-nilee, yes, in the history all those packages06:13
jonywilee-nilee, no, sorry, it shows only the ubuntu's version06:13
wilee-nileejony, remove it from there, then run a install from the terminal sudo apt-get install libreoffice06:13
wooMrHanjrah: did you try lubuntu or another not gnome3 ubuntu flavor?06:13
MrHanjrahwoo: Lubuntu is the same06:14
wilee-nileejony, Ah I see, I'm not sure on removing it otherwise, sorry.06:14
MrHanjrahstuck at (initramfs)06:14
wooMrHanjrah: Lubuntu is up?06:14
wooMrHanjrah: ya thats a ubuntu issue if the other os's are up and responding.06:14
witedsyes so you can only go so far before you have to update for the security  benefit  hence you can only take it so far06:15
MrHanjrahwoo: yes, rhel6 (gnome 2) and fedora (gnome 3) are fine, the installer boots as it should06:15
wilee-nileewiteds, Not sure if you know this but 12.04 is covered for 5 years06:15
wooMrHanjrah: see im not very good at this I would just load 10.04 and update06:16
witedsyes i know06:16
wooMrHanjrah: might lead you back to busybox06:16
MrHanjrahwoo: i guess something is wrong with the configuration of PXE server itself, because if the iso can boot directly, it should boot from the PXE because PXE itself is holding the same image file06:17
witedsi was just trying to find out if it would be better to update with the distribution when it comes and i am ready for it or to stick with my current setup and what would be an issue if i didn't update and you answered that and i am thank full06:18
wooMrHanjrah: I would try it from a live puppy linux session on the windows machine and see if it worked that way too06:20

pppZerowoo, easiest way is to setup iptables to drop (not block) all incomming connections - but then you have to allow incoming connections on anything you actually want to use (ie: ssh) - if you want to be really-really stealth, look into port knocking06:42
jelly-homejony: file oriented solutions: encfs (fuse-based), eCryptfs (kernel driver based)06:43
wooAkiva-Mobile: ok the way I did it was just sudo apt-get install unity: then rebooted into an xsession and removed additonal driver06:43
Akiva-Mobilewoo I still have unity installed06:43
Akiva-Mobilethats the thing.06:43
wooAkiva-Mobile: I used shift in grub to access the other kernel06:44
MrHanjrahok, so where is the kernel directory on the live/installation cd? is it vmlinuz under 'casper' directory or somewhere else? maybe named something else?06:44
wooAkiva-Mobile: ya it there an not there its strange06:44

Akiva-Mobilewoo; i bet nvidia drivers would work better for this amd chipset...06:46
gaze__I see gnome-network-manager06:47
Akiva-Mobilegaze__: 2006 called, they want their wrapper back.06:47
wooAkiva-Mobile: I give ati a higher score then nvidia for preformance06:47

gaze__networkmanager, etc06:50
jonywilee-nilee, and crypted with trucrypt it's remain crypted even if it will try to access it in other OS?06:50
aeon-ltdgaze__: why don't you just use a distro that already is stripped down?06:50

Gyro54I am trying to connect a Sierra Aircard 320U which is recognised but will not connect to the service?09:30
Neutron01_is there any shortcut to open terminal?09:31
devswapcfhowlett: I thought that open office was to be discontinued - is this wrong / been changed?09:31
Gyro54How can I test the unit?09:31
cfhowlettdevswap, wrong.  open office is still active just no longer supported by oracle09:31
devswapcfhowlett: oh ok - maybe I will check that out then as I prefered it to libre office09:32
cfhowlettdevswap, many OO developers have switched to Libre so libre is in many ways now more current coded that oo09:32
hanshello there, im a new ubuntu user, i have a  problem and found the solution, but i dont't know how to do it. this is the link of the "solution" http://cgit.freedesktop.org/xorg/xserver/commit/?id=2d4fda4b09e67e47d3e6fc4743fc6e81bfe40f2809:32
k1l_Neutron01_: ctrl+alt+t09:33
Neutron01_thank k1l_09:33
Gyro54devswap: The latest Libre is hard to beat09:33
ejvhans: Ubuntu uses pre-compiled binaries for its environment, you can't really incorporate that fix without some "work", for very advanced users only.09:34
devswapgyro54: just updating to it now09:34
ejvhans: I'd suggest putting pressure on the Xorg PPA devs to release a new binary for you that ships with that patch.09:35
devswapgyro54: there isnt a scaled down version from android is there?09:35
hansejv, look at the 2 last comments here https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=13832209:35
Gyro54devswap: not yet. They are working on it09:35
k1l_devswap: for android support please ask in the android channels09:36
cfhowlettdevswap, see http://www.mediabistro.com/appnewser/libre-office-coming-to-android_b2442209:36
devswapthanks all09:36
ejvhans: Arch is a rolling release distribution that uses slotted packaging (AFAIK); so it's not a basis for comparison; Check out the PPA and see if there's a binary that was built with the fix you're looking for. At least, that's what I'd do, before filing a new bug.09:38

ejvhans: patching and compiling packages is heavily documented, it's not something I (personally) have time to walk you through unfortunately, and I wouldn't want to because of the support nightmare it introduces if you break dependencies on other packages.09:46
ejvhans: for starters check out: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/CompilingSoftware and http://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/lucid/man1/patch.1.html09:47
hansok ejv thanks...09:48
ejvhans: according to the comments you left, the xorg fix you're interested in, made its way upstream, chances are the fix is actually already included, and you have a different, but similar problem. When all else fails, file a bug report on the Xorg Launchpad.09:48

tdotr6Hi Good Morning, I have a question hopefully I can make this not very confusing. I did just finish a night shfit.. lol But I got in from work and I found my server unreachable..Running Ubuntu server 12.10... So I went over to physicly check it this time since it's the second time in 24 hours this has happened. There was nothing when I turned the screen and I couldnt get the screen to wake up...I11:48
tdotr6have checked logs and found nothing other then crazy amounts of DHCP Requests from all 3 nic cards.  The only thing I could find that I am able to duplicate is if I unplug 1 of the 3 NIC cards, they all become unreachable. So If Eth0 gets unplugged and I am pinging Eth2 say, It will die. but the moment eht0 is back in, eth2 will reply.... I work at a data center for a living but I am a networking11:48

Sacrelicious_okay, video chipset is simply showing as11:53

cfhowlettJeppesen, greetings11:55
Sacrelicious_which isnt really a specific chipset, mind you -_-"11:55
JeppesenI have a serious problem with my ubuntu 12.04 and dont know how to solve it. I did an upgrade (dist-upgrade) because it was a long time ago. Now I cannot login and use my desktop any more11:55
JeppesenAs soon as I enter my password at the login prompt, it says sometimes "already connected", but I dont see my usual desktop11:55
cfhowlettJeppesen, so what DO you see?11:56
chrisrHi all,  the suspend feature of my Ubuntu does not work - it never comes back alive.  Can this be fixed or should I just turn off the sleep feature?  I'm using a Dell E6530 lapto.11:56
Jeppesensometimes it seems I get logged it, but doesnt see anything else on the screen except my wallpaper, no  buttons, no menus, nothing, only wallpaper11:56
JeppesenOnly on the upper right the icon for logoff/power off/etc... the strange thing is --> when I click on reboot, logoff or poweroff it seems that NOTHING happens11:57
cfhowlettJeppesen, might be a unity glitch.  logout.  select the alternate session.  login.11:57
JeppesenI have to push the power button on my computer case, then another kind of window appears and this works when I choose reboot or shutdown11:57
Jeppesencfhowlett: yes, I am using unity11:57
Jeppesenhold on a sec ... let me boot the machine11:57
cfhowlettJeppesen, right.  try it WITHOUT unity11:57
ejv#ubuntu-server isn't very helpful (in my experience); during past occassions I had to wait days for a response, let alone something close to resembling an answer. Not sure passing the buck to that channel is in the best interest of users here. $0.02.11:58
JeppesenI already tried ALT-F1, login as user, "sudo su -" and then apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade, apt-get upgrade, apt-get install -f, apt-get autoremove and apt-get autoclean11:58
Jeppesenmachine is booting ...11:58
JeppesenUbuntu 12.10, sorry11:58
cfhowlettJeppesen, none of which tells us if the problem is unit or not ...11:58
dr_willisdont use sudo su - ,,, sudo -s  or sudo -i   is the proper way11:59
k1l_Jeppesen: dont do sudo su -, use sudo -i11:59
cfhowlettJeppesen, log out.  click on the gear symbol.  select a different session.  login.11:59
Jeppesencfhowlett k1l_ : why?11:59
dr_willissudo su -    is even more redundant. ;)11:59
cfhowlettJeppesen, to see if UNITY is causing your issue.11:59
k1l_Jeppesen: enviroement hendling11:59
ejvjust login as root, no sudo necessary, amirite?11:59
* ejv ducks11:59
JeppesenOk, now listen. I am at the login prompt11:59
k1l_ejv: dont suggest that here :(12:00
JeppesenI see my hostname "foobar", I see my username "johndoe" and I can click on "Other..."12:00
ejvk1l_: you don't say12:00
lalondonghey guys12:00
JeppesenIf I click on my user, I have the option to enter the password, and on the bottom I can choose "system default" or "Ubuntu"12:01
tdotr6Hey guy's anyone here have any networking exp with ubunut?12:01
Jeppesenthe other two buttons just say "Cancel" and "Login"12:01
ejv!ask | tdotr612:01
ubottutdotr6: Please don't ask to ask a question, simply ask the question (all on ONE line and in the channel, so that others can read and follow it easily). If anyone knows the answer they will most likely reply. :-) See also !patience12:01
tdotr6Doesnt seem very alive in ubuntu-server12:01
tdotr6Ya for sure ejv12:01
ejvoh you're the guy that wrote a paragraph 15 minutes ago12:01
cfhowlettJeppesen, click on the gear symbol ...12:01
cfhowlettJeppesen, the Ubuntu symbol?12:02
JeppesenI dont see any gear symbol cfhowlett12:02
tdotr6yea I wasnt going to write as much12:02
ejvno no no, you did the right thing, we value more detail over less detail here.12:02
tdotr6Basicly the problem is, 3 NIC Card setup, You unplug 1 NIC Card, All 3 become unreachable.12:02
Jeppesenon the top of the screen I see the date/time, on the upper right the symbol for "power". When I click on that I can choose "Suspend, Reboot, Shut-down"12:02
tdotr6LOL this is ture , more info is better12:02
cfhowlettI'm on 12.04 so I can't show you the pic.  Ask in channel how to change environments12:02
ejvis this reproduceable on other servers?12:03
tdotr6the other linux box I have is my router12:03
tdotr6it works great, the other linux box I had.. I just changed to windows12:03
k1l_Jeppesen: is it a plain ubuntu? that should have lightdm with that screen where you can change if you want to change to unity or other desktop12:03
tdotr6had to to setup the media center correctly12:03
tdotr6f'n windows...12:03
JeppesenI did choose "Ubuntu" now, instead of "System default" I entered my password and clicked on login ... Nothing happened, except --> next to the username appeared a green checkmark with the text "Already logged-in at"12:04
Jeppesenthat happens all the time, and it doesnt continue to do anything, I still see the login prompt12:04
ejvtdotr6: and the ubuntu logs say what?12:04
tdotr6This box has been up for a few months all good no issues with the OS Ever..12:04
tdotr6The only thing I can see , is it sending out for DHCP requests12:04
tdotr6like crazy12:04
Jeppesenk1l_: I have no option to change that12:04
tdotr6but there are so many logs, I am not sure what one to check12:04
tdotr6like If I am even checking the one that matters12:05
ejvtdotr6: dmesg preferably12:05
k1l_Jeppesen: or try the guest account.12:05
tdotr6Ok let me check right now12:05
jonyhow can I mount an IP's all shares in a  single folder using fstab ?12:05
Jeppesenk1l_: what is the guest account?12:05
tdotr6Will dmesg make a new file on boot?12:05
JeppesenI mean: i can log in as root and check what exactly the problem is, but where do I have to look for that? xorg.conf or somehwhere else?12:05
tdotr6or does it keep adding to the same log?12:05
k1l_Jeppesen: it should show you smth like this: http://www.pro-linux.de/images/NB3/imgdb/o_der-display-manager-lightdm.jpg12:06
tdotr6Just to know if I gotta check the historic log or not12:06
k1l_click the ubuntu symbol behind your username to select the desktop: http://ubuntusecke.net/wp-content/uploads/ubuntu12.10-lightdm_2.png   or press on the guest-account to get started in that12:06
Jeppesenk1l_: nope, I have another screen ... the background is exactly the same, but my login prompt is centered12:06
OerHekscfhowlett, i think Jeppesen has the .Xauthority issue after update > https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/lightdm/+bug/1036830 this could be fixed by removing ~/.Xauthority file12:07
ubottuLaunchpad bug 1036830 in lightdm (Ubuntu) "Can't log in unless remove .Xauthority or use gdm" [Undecided,Confirmed]12:07
k1l_Jeppesen: so again: is this a plain ubuntu or smth different? did you change smth in there?12:07
cfhowlettOerHeks, please advise him. ... over my head.12:07

rightshiftHi, Does ubuntu 10.04 support both resolv.conf OR /etc/network/interfaces12:10
rightshiftfor DNS entries12:10
Jeppesenk1l_: what do you mean with plain ?12:10
rightshiftI'm trying to standardize server dns - but i'm not sure if 10.04 supports entries in /etc/network/interfaces12:11
cfhowlettrightshift, perhaps a question for #ubuntu-server12:11
Jeppesencfhowlett: yes, some day I saw a message that such a file (something like Xauthority or similar, dont remember) could not be created under /home/johndoe/bla..12:11
k1l_Jeppesen: if its an ubuntu or some ubunut spinoff or some customized ubuntu12:11
Jeppesenk1l_: plain ubuntu then, nothing special, nothing tweaked,12:12
JeppesenOerHeks: but I have no file in ~/ called .Xauthority I checked that12:13
dr_willisDouble check. ;)12:14
Ben64files that start with . are hidden12:14
OerHeksJeppesen, it is hidden, ( the "." in front of a file means hidden)12:14
dr_willisalso seen other user settings mess things up if they are owned by root12:14
OerHeksJeppesen, ls -al should show it12:14
JeppesenOerHeks: I know, but there is no hidden file called something with authority. I also did run "find / -name authority" but didnt find anything12:15
Jeppesenbut I have found with "locate authority" a file called /var/lib/gdm/.ICEauthority12:15

dr_willisone of the handiest features i got on weechat12:33
linusdr_willis ... thats a gud 1 ... but now how can I get that theme...... :12:33
k1l_linus: then revert the changes you did?12:33
dr_willislinus:  no idea. i dont 'do' gnome classic12:34
linusk1l _ :   I dont know exactly which package  i,ve installed to make the change.....12:35
cfhowlettLinus do you have ubuntu-tweak???12:36
dr_willisif a newly made user has the proper look.. then you could just clean out/delete all the other users settings12:36
linusYes, i've installed ubuntu tweak.12:36
cfhowlettlinus, how did I know?12:36
dr_willisubuntu-tweak used to have a 'reset settings back to defaults' option - not looked at it in ages12:37
dr_willisbeen using unsettings lately12:37
cfhowlettLinus  that's where you broke it/that's you fix it.  Note:  Ubuntu tweak is NOT in the ubuntu repo's ... for a reason.12:37
linusIts the login screen that has changed, so it is same for all.By the way,where is the option revert settings in ubuntu tweak?12:38
dr_willisthe login screen has changed to what?12:38
linusTo that of Gnome3's from ubuntu's default12:38
dr_willisso you are usin GDM instead of lightdm12:39
linushow can i change it back to GDM?12:40
dr_willisno lists here amada9512:40
dr_willislinus:  sudo dpkg-reconfigure gdm12:40
k1l_linus: the screen you want is lightdm, not gdm12:40
k1l_linus: so that command will be "sudo dpkg-reconfigure lightdm"12:41
linusThankyou all for your suggestions.Will try them out and come back.Wish me luck.12:42
ReemoHey guys, i have a problem with my ubuntu server 12.10 installation. I have several drives configured in raid5 (storage only). If i have all drives attached on boot, the screen stays blank. If i detach all drives except the boot drives (raid1), it will boot up just fine12:43
chrisrlinus: Hi Linus, I'd be greateful if you could get 'Suspend' working in the next version12:43
chrisrlinus: ...of the kernel12:43
ReemoCan you give me any hint on how i can debug the boot (the last thing i see before the screen is blank is "loading ramdisk"12:43
dr_willischrisr:  ask the hw makers to give better support and specs also...12:43
chrisrdr_willis: ok12:45
Martin_Reemo: I would remove 'quiet' and 'splash' option in grub menu entry12:52
afdI think my SD card got bricked when there was an unexpected shutdown. can someone help me in terminal to check it out / fix it pls12:52
Martin_Reemo: take a loot at /etc/default/grub12:53
=== dziegler_off is now known as dziegler
ReemoMartin_: thanks for the suggestion, but this is a server install. it doesnt have quiet and splash enabled by default12:53
ReemoBut right now im looking at a nice little kernel panic...12:55
afdneither nautilus nor gparted can see the card... any ideas?12:55
Martin_Reemo: ok :)12:55
ReemoSo, it looks like mdadm doesnt properly assemble the boot raid array when i boot with the other drives attached12:55
Reemosounds weird...12:56
Martin_oh, software raid ... :)12:58
Martin_afd: did you take a look at your logfiles ?12:58
afdthe card was in a windows machine when it bricked - I'm trying ot use ubuntu to repair it12:59
afdwill the log files show anything?12:59
afdI've only live booted and looked in nautilus / gparted so far12:59
dr_willisafd:  try ddrescue to recover data from it if needed.. and try using 'dd' to zero out and repartion the card.. might bring it back to life12:59
afdhow do I identify the card if it isn't showing up anywhere...13:00
Martin_maybe the kernel doesn't see the card13:00
Martin_afd: try inserting the card then type 'dmesg'13:00
Martin_and see if you see something related to13:01
afdok - looks like some stuff refers to the sd in dmesg13:02
afdthinks it's sdb13:02
Martin_ok so you should see the card in gparted as sdb13:02
afdnah - it's not in gparted13:02
Martin_you don't see it in the drop down menu ??13:03
dr_willisif you dont see it get a sd# in dmesg when you plug it in.. then it may be truely dead13:03
afdI see sda (the hdd) and sdc (the live usb stick)13:03
afdI'm willing to take a gamble and try dd'ing the sdb - could someone talk me through the command/s pls13:03
dr_willisIF its not gettiong a sd# then you cant even dd it13:04
afdI only need it working - none of the data that was on it13:04
afddr_willis: I think it is sdb as it says in dmesg13:04
Martin_dr_willis: it seems the kernel see the card as sdb13:04
dr_willisafd:  sudo blkid should show it then13:04
dr_willis and gparted should see it.13:04
afdblkid shows loop0, loop1, sda1, sda2, sdc113:05
afdbut not the sdb :S13:05
Martin_try sudo fdisk -l /dev/sdb13:06
Reemooh wow13:06
Reemofor the record: reinstalling the kernel fixed it13:06
Martin_at least it should show partitions13:06
Martin_Reemo: very very strange...13:06
afdMartin_: fdisk didn't show any output (no errors, no confirmations...)13:07
BluesKajHiyas all13:07
Martin_afd: did it list some partitions or the size of the card ?13:07
afdnope, nothing13:07

ubottuDon't feel ignored and repeat your question quickly; if nobody knows your answer, nobody will answer you. While you wait, try searching https://help.ubuntu.com/ or http://ubuntuforums.org/ or http://askubuntu.com/14:30
capoderracompdoc, yes there are some lines... delete them?14:30
csotelonow I have a big problem cause I have a poweredge r210 server wich I can statr install with raid 0, however I have read on internet that ubuntu supports well this server, but I am not sure on trust on ubuntu  for a critical server, then cause  taht I need to know your , if were possible , some opinions.. please...14:30
csotelok1l_, hi.. I know sorry, just I mean for my question14:31
k1l_csotelo: there is no reason to not trust ubuntu server installation14:31
compdoccapoderra, place a # in front of the lines you think, save, and then run sudo apt-get update14:31
csotelok1l_, I have this idea sice ubuntu was based on sid debian repo,14:32
capoderracompdoc, success!  so now can I go back and delete those lines?14:32
csoteloand each day has a lot of updated14:32
k1l_csotelo: use the LTS version with extended support.14:32
compdoccapoderra, yes, should14:32
* csotelo a a debian sys admin14:32
arunaDo application files have the extension .desktop?14:33
k1l_csotelo: its based on that repo until it gets the freeze.14:33
capoderracompdoc, thank you for your help!  Also, if you remember my earlier question about Skype, I think the reason why Skype would crash when people called me was because I enabled the firewall without adding a rule for Skype.  What do you think?14:34
csoteloand hwat about to much updates per days, looks like a no stable or many bugs.. sorry for the question I just want to be sure what I will do, cause it will be a critical server14:34
csoteloand I have never used ubuntu for that just debian14:34
k1l_csotelo: sry, you have no clue what ubuntu is, right?14:34
compdoccapoderra, possible. I dont use Skype or a firewall14:34
k1l_!lts | csotelo14:35
ubottucsotelo: LTS means Long Term Support. LTS versions of Ubuntu will be supported for 3 years on the desktop, and 5 years on the server; with the exception of 12.04 (Precise Pangolin), which will be supported for 5 years on the desktop. The current LTS version of Ubuntu is !Precise (Precise Pangolin 12.04)14:35
csotelok1l_, I want to be sure that if I install ubuntu on a critical server I wont have problems at the future14:35
afdMartin_: strange. I've put the card in another machine and it's recognising it but as a 55Mb card! It's actually 16GB14:35
moultonrIs there a way to get rid of openjdk without ditching parts of Libreoffice?14:36

csotelok1l_, and now I probably dont have to much option on this poweredge server14:37
csotelotaht is why i am asking cause internet says that ubuntu supports raid 0 for this server14:38
csotelobut I just want to be sure14:38
k1l_csotelo: you are free to choose either debian or ubuntu. but i dont see a reason not to choose ubuntu LTS14:38
k1l_and iirc debian doesnt come with 5 years support.14:39
streulmak1l_: oh no? It's better to run Ubuntu then for servers?14:39

Partzz I m trying to install Ubuntu to my sda3 partition as mentioned in this picture: http://i.stack.imgur.com/U4rtV.png I have resized the partition to get 20 Gb free space but i cannot create new partition in this space16:48
Partzzcan you help me please16:48
c2taruncom5, what do you mean by adding a folder to the path?16:48
c2tarunPartzz, I think that is because you have 4 primary partitions16:49
c2taruntry to create one logical partition in that 20GB instead of primary or extended one.16:49
com5c2tarun, well I just have a bunch of scripts in a folder in my home dir and would like to be able to run them from where ever I am16:50

intraderc2tarun, how, I have disabled all proprietary drivers17:13
wilee-nileexastey, Funny thing about installing that not every driver is loaded at times if you install without the install updates box in the install gui, it can be as simple as not being connected to the web.17:13
c2tarunhamidddddddd, try executing man chown in terminal, you'll understand what chown does17:13

Siecjellutz: I access it with the internal IP address the site is running through localhost17:47
alainusis it safe to sync the home folder with another pc that has the same applications installed, so that all the configurations sync ?17:47
histohamiddddddd: possibly try a different version.17:47
Betanu701lol ok sorry ubottu Thanks17:47
llutzpolizois: "telnet dreambox" gives you terminalaccess, there you edit the file (use whatever editor the dreambox brings)17:47
donttrustemk1l: are you still here17:48
hamidddddddhisto: its the last version17:48
llutzSiecje: then use "localhost.localdomain"17:48
histoalainus: Why not just sync the specific file for settings rather than the entire home.17:49
xasteywilee-nilee I may have to do it still, to have grub boot my w7 install from the second drive17:49
llutzSiecje: btw it would be easier to use nullmailer, ssmtp, msmtp instead of a full featured MTA like postfix (though that also will do the job)17:49
histohamiddddddd: try an older one. or ask them for support.17:49
Betanu701I have an 2 tv tuners both hybrids and both are claimed to work in linux. The digital side works like a charm, but I get no signal on the analog side, I have updated all the drivers and modprobed to see that they actually are running them. any advice?17:49
ubuntuwantsHey guys, I just want to know how to find my NTFS so I can install Windows and remove Ubuntu17:49
Siecjellutz: what is localdomain? Which of those packages do you recommend17:50
polizoisllutz: i didnt know i could do that...do you know what editor it features???17:50
Betanu701ubutuwants: do you have a NTFS partion?17:50
histoubuntuwants: In the file browser (nautilus) you should be able to see your other partitions.17:50
llutzpolizois: nope, ask the dreambox guys please17:50
wilee-nileexastey, grub can be loaded to the SSD's mbr from the live cd, or you can use a tool like supergrub to just boot Ubuntu and do it from the desktop. The windows bootloader can be reloaded to it's mbr with the recovery disc.17:51
llutzSiecje: ssmtp worked fine for me, but all other should do too17:51
hamidddddddi had the older one histo. its filtered in my country, no other way?17:51
alainushisto, that's another option. i was just wondering if i could make it faster by just syncing the entire directory17:51
histohamiddddddd: Why would the newer one not be filtered?17:51
ubuntuwantsBetanu701: I installed Ubuntu 12.10 over a corrupted Windows 7 and now I want to install Vista but can't since the NTFS is gone. I am sure I have the NTFS Partition is here.17:51
histoalainus: How often does the "configuration" file change?17:51
xasteycool.. so what I'm doing wilee-nilee is, first I switched my ssd to be hdd0 (not just in boot order) and my old hdd is hdd117:51
polizoisllutz: ok thanks17:52
intradermneptok, I have started the browser in html5 test mode. See no difference in heat generation in full screen. psensor temp2 shoots up immediately17:52
histoubuntuwants: /j #windows17:52
xasteynow I'm going to just reinstall .. its a quick install anyways... then I'll address fixing adding win7 to grub on my ssd drive17:52
Betanu701ubuntuwants: use gparted to see if it is there17:52
xasteywhich will boot win7 from my second drive17:52
wilee-nileeubuntuwants, can you run sudo fdisk -l and pastebin the text and give us the url.17:52
hamidddddddhisto: i downloaded it from ubuntu server17:52
histohamiddddddd: What's filtered in your country?17:53
ubuntuwantsI guess I have formatted my NTFS or something. Seems terminal can't detect my NTFS17:53
llutzSiecje: erm wait, you just need local delivery (all users on your local machine)? then msmtp might be better17:53
alainushisto, some change very often (filezilla) and some not so much. i want to use my laptop as a terminal when I need to go away from the pc and work elsewhere, so I don't care if they're exactly equal in configuration and files. I know that you can use Unison to sync these files over ssh, so i was thinking of just syncing the entire ~17:53
wilee-nileexastey, Cool just make sure tat grub in the custom install is pointed at the SSD mbr, probably is sdb17:53
Siecjellutz: no I need to send emails to people17:54
Siecjenot users on my machine17:54
xasteywill do wilee-nilee thanks a lot for the help so far.. you too Betanu701 thanks guys17:54

Betanu701No problem good luck17:54
ubuntuwantsHow to add Unity dock in Linux distro? Hmmm.17:55
histoubuntuwants: Are you trying to install windows again?17:55
wilee-nileexastey, you can check for the ssd's info with gparted or in the terminal to just confirm it is sdb, I would.17:55
ubuntuwants@histo just wanna ask. I installed on my aunt's computer and she said she does not like Ubuntu and wants Windows back.17:55
xasteyno its sda right now wilee-nilee17:55
xasteyprevious it was sdb17:55
xasteybut after I switched the hd slots (took laptop apart) its showing ssd as sda17:56
wilee-nileexastey, Cool, the important part is that you know for sure, enjoy. ;)17:56
histoubuntuwants: then use the windows cd and install winblows again.  Perhaps you should show her linux mint first. If you need help installing windows /join #windows17:56
mike_mSiecje, can you start Postfix? sudo /etc/init.d/postfix restart17:56
histoxastey: do not rely on /dev/sdX naming. Use uuid's17:56
Betanu701ubuntuwants: or you could try showing her linux zorin it is like windows17:57

Guest24013BluesKaj, Do you know how to uninstall updates through terminal. Because I have a laptop running Ubuntu LTS after updating it all what I get is a blank screen after startup while the shells are working probably.20:39
BigWigI can't boot into windows or linux. All that shows up is the grub rescue line. I tried ubuntu boot repair and it didn't do anything20:39
com5There are guides saying to add a path inn .profile and there are guides saying to it in .bachrc and still more to put them over here and over there and none of them work20:39
wastltimhansen: then maybe packages for 10.04 are still availaibe (due to lts) but for 10.10 are not20:40
wastlGlenn__: so what's your issue20:40
com5I use these scripts all the time20:40
timhansenwastl: correct20:40
com5They are all set to x20:40
llutzcom5: ".bashrc" is sourced in ".profile" by default in ubuntu. so .bashrc will be fine because its always read20:40
com5Okay I will try again20:40
llutzcom5: check "grep bashrc ~/.profile"20:41
llutzcom5: should give something like:   if [ -f "$HOME/.bashrc" ]; then ...20:41
com5Yes I get this if statement20:42
com5But it is # out20:42
llutzcom5: remove those #20:42
com5So then it is not included20:42
com5Remove them in .bachrc or .profile ?20:44
llutzcom5: change .profile to read like this: https://gist.github.com/llutz/519064120:44
com5Oh in .profile20:44
llutzcom5:then  add "export PATH=$PATH:/home/you/yourdirwithscript" to ~/.bashrc, then relogin or just ". ~/.bashrc" to get the changes activated20:45
com5llutz, what about the "set PATH so it includes user's private bin if it exists" should I use that as well20:45
Guest24013I updated ubuntu 12.04 LTS and after the 250 MB update I can't get interface running while the shells are running.20:46
llutzcom5: if you use a ~/bin  sure20:46
llutzcom5: i wouldn't change that. if you don't have a ~/bin  dir, it wouldn't harm and if you have one, you don't have to worry about the PATH20:47
com5Yeah that's where I have my scripts but under more sub directory's so is it recessive?20:48
llutzcom5: nope20:48

icerootAnoniman86: #ubuntu+122:14
icerootdark_soul: yes22:14
ovidius2clemens: depends on the drivers you use22:14
wilee-nileeAnoniman86, you want #ubuntu+122:14
dark_souliceroot: does it also open the port 22 automatically? and as a followup if i remove the package does it clean up all that stuff as well?22:14
icerootdark_soul: yes22:15
dark_soulokay thanks22:15
icerootdark_soul: by default no port is blocked on ubuntu22:15

falloutwhy might find -exec not see a script in my PATH?22:18
clemensovidius2: i don't understand what you mean. are you using a tool that is automatically managing the switching or do you use bash?22:19

voozehilbilly, no, Samsung N35022:19
falloutikonia: yup, find . -type f -name '*.txt' -exec plot-batch {} \; plot-batch is not found here22:19

ikoniafallout: is it in your $PATH ?22:20
hilbillyLet me know what you think of it after a week or so.22:21
ikoniafallout: use the full path to the binary22:21
kboodufallout: You might be better off specifying the full path to the script.22:21
falloutikonia: yes, it's exported in bashrc, and it works if I manually call it, or if I specifiy the full path22:21
falloutwas just hoping to understand why find seems to ignore my PATH22:22
ikoniafallout: so if you do "echo $PATH" your path is currently set correctly ?22:22
falloutikonia: yes, the path is correct22:22
ikoniafallout: just so I'm clear, how are you verifying that22:22
falloutikonia: echo $PATH | tr ':' '\n', and I see it as ~/path/to/plot-batch22:23
falloutmaybe since it's ~ and not the expanded full path?22:23
ikoniafallout: that shouldn't matter,22:23
falloutdoes work if I type 'plot-batch' anywhere on shell though22:24
ikoniafallout: try actually setting the path to /home/user/bin/whatever22:24
falloutikonia: woah, that was it22:25

ClientAlivedoes ubuntu 12.04 really support secure boot like I've heard?22:25

ClientAliveikonia: ok, so then if my motherboard/ bios does not allow me to diassable it I'm screwed on an efi install?22:26
ikoniaClientAlive: no, efi is supported22:26
ikoniasecure boot is something different22:26
ClientAliveikonia: but when I boot the installation cd in efi mode it complains about not finding a key (I think it's the bios that does).22:27
ikoniaClientAlive: you need to understand the difference between EFI and secure boot and find out what your hardware does/needs22:27
ClientAlivedoesn't secure boot stop the o/s from booting (if it's enableed and the o/s in question does not have a registered key)?22:28

ubottuMikeH: Ubuntu, like any other Linux distribution, has firewall capabilities built-in. The firewall is managed using the 'ufw' command - see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UFW | An alternative to ufw is the 'iptables' command - See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/IptablesHowTo | GUI frontends such as Gufw (GNOME) and Guarddog (KDE from Lucid onwards) also exist.22:49
