harrisany good videos on what is a gigabit switch and how do i use it00:07
OerHeksharris, no need to configure a switch, it is an intelligent hub.00:08
harrisi know i want to know what it is00:08
harrisi have like 7 of them00:08
genii-aroundPlug cord in, plug other end of cord into something else, voila00:09
OerHekspro switches can be managed, fiber00:10
genii-aroundOerHeks: Well, true.00:11
harriswhat does it do though00:11
genii-aroundharris: If they are some higher end types with vlan, aggregation, etc, they might know more about them in ##hardware or ##networking00:11
harrisit says i cant send to hardware00:12
genii-aroundharris: Switches connect things which can use networking cable together00:12
DJRWolfthere is a difference between managed and unmanaged switches00:12
DJRWolffor a network forenics class I had, the teacher needed to bring in a hub or managed switch, an unmanged one would not work00:13
genii-aroundharris: If it's "gigabit" it means the speed is 1000 instead of 100 , etc00:13
OerHeksa switch extends 1 port into 4/8/16/24 new ports00:13
rmarkeri am locked out of my file. it is saying i do not have permission. How do i fix this?00:14
DJRWolfit is because we had to disconnect the "deep frozen" lab computers and hook them up to the hub/managed switch and he had 2 computers that he would use live malware on, an unmanged switched would not have let us view the network traffic between them as the infection happened00:14
Poisoned_Dragonharris: A gigabit switch is a router that passes data at a rate of 1 gigabit/s, or 1000 megabits/s.00:15
Poisoned_DragonIt's just like your 10/100 router, but faster.00:16
OerHeksDo not mix 100/1000 :-)00:17
BrittanyIs there any kind of application I could use that would be able to wake ubuntu from suspend and play an alarm? Curse having nothing but a $1,300 machine to be an alarm clock.00:17
vasco_what are likely alternatives to ntp for time sync'ing? some servers clock is off, but ntp is not installed00:19
harrison the gigabit switch there isnt a port to plug the one from router into it00:20
Poisoned_DragonI think only business level routers still have an uplink port.00:22
Poisoned_DragonI just chain one router to another.00:23
rmarkeranyone know how to change file permissions?00:23
genii-aroundharris: They will usually just autosense anyhow00:23
rmarkeri got locked out somehow of my files what can i do?00:24
KatsumeBliskrmarker: chmod is the command for that.00:25
rmarkeri am a newbi i dunno how to use that00:25
KatsumeBliskrmarker: Define locked out.00:25
rmarkerYou do not have the permissions necessary to view the contents of00:26
rmarkeri can not get to my files hince locked out00:26
KatsumeBliskrmarker: In the terminal, "chmod 775 <filename>"00:27
Poisoned_Dragonif you type sudo yourfilemanagerhere, you can access the files as root. Also you can right click them and change the permissions.00:27
KatsumeBliskPoisoned_Dragon has a better suggestion rmarker00:27
Poisoned_DragonI wouldn't say better. Just gui based.00:27
Poisoned_Dragonif your terminal savvy, KatsumeBlisk's suggestion is fine00:27
rmarkeri want a quick way to change it. all personal files ar effected00:28
harriswhen i connected to the gigabit switch the ping and download speed went down is that better or worse00:29
Poisoned_Dragonwhat is your desktop environment, rmarker? Unity, KDE, Xfce, LXDE?00:29
rmarkeruh i dunno i just installed the latest Ubuntu00:30
Poisoned_Dragonin terminal, type: sudo nautilus00:30
Poisoned_DragonThen you can look at files as root, and right click them to change permissions.00:31
genii-around!gksu | Poisoned_Dragon00:31
ubottuPoisoned_Dragon: If you need to run graphical applications as root, use « gksudo », as it will set up the environment more appropriately. Never just use "sudo"! (See http://psychocats.net/ubuntu/graphicalsudo to know why)00:31

Meep__Hello, can I get some advice on an install I'm trying to run? I'm trying to install Ubuntu alongside Windows 7 for a dual boot, but I'd like to put it on a different hard drive than where Win7 lives. When running the installation Ubuntu throws an error saying it can't create the boot loader00:58
bradleygnuskool the fan isnt even spinning00:58
Dr_willisMalsasa,  you put that export command in your .bashrc or .profile  Just running the command from a shell will work FOR THAT SHELL ONLY./ and will not survive a reboot00:58
Dr_willisMalsasa,  so im guessing you are not exporting it correctly00:59
theborgerBlueEagle: network is on, ubuntu is on /2400:59
SonikkuAmericaMeep__: It might be possible that your ISO is corrupted...00:59
gnuskoolbradley: sounds unlikely to be fixed by software, youmay have to get hands on, unclog it00:59
Dr_willisMalsasa,  as a test. run that export command from a konsole, then run chromium from that same terminal. see if it works00:59
MalsasaDr_willis: yes, maybe my export command wrong. export "NO_CHROME_KDE_FILE_DIALOG=1" was my command. Is it wrong?01:00
bradleygnuskool: i just did but the fan spins when the laptop turns on then nothing when i log in to my server01:00
Meep__SonikkuAmerica: It boots fine off the thumb drive and its a fresh copy of the ISO01:00

SonikkuAmericaMeep__: Does it provide any other details about the error?01:01
BlueEagletheborger: Then you need to check your cable, because your box is correctly configured.01:01

bradleyok thanks01:02
MalsasaDr_willis: yes, it works and KDialog change into GTK dialog again, but only if I run chromium from bash. What if I want this setting permanent?01:02

Meepbut Win7's boot loader lives on sde101:21
Meepso....trying the default I guess01:22
gnuskoolMalsasa: the command is correct, but you need to put it in the right place depending on if youre in kde or gnome01:23
Malsasagnuskool: okay, okay. I put in /etc/environment01:23
gnuskoolMalsasa: read that entire post, it explains in detail, there is further clarification here https://help.ubuntu.com/community/EnvironmentVariables#Session-wide_environment_variables01:23

jamesaeppDJRWolf: It stands for Linux Terminal Server Project. Really neat stuff.01:24

MeepI wonder if I can edit the grub timer down so it just loads up Ubuntu if I dont immediately hit anything01:54
SonikkuAmericaMeep: That should be possible, it's in /etc/default/grub in Ubuntu01:56

wilee-nileeCleanCarl, the underlying system of all the ubuntu, kubuntu,lubuntu, and xubuntu are basically the same the desktops are the difference, choose one and install cinnamon.02:43
Meepfor example, remap pictures to another folder elsewhere02:43
wilee-nileeCleanCarl, You will have two desktops unless you remove one of them is all.02:44

javanichello (hello echos)03:12
wilee-nilee!details | javanic for the channel.03:14
ubottujavanic for the channel.: Please give us full details. For example: "I have a problem with ..., I'm running Ubuntu version .... When I try to do ..., I get the following output: ..., but I expected it to do ..."03:14
ubottunetsplit is when two IRC servers of the same network (like freenode) disconnect from each other, so users on one server stop seeing users on the other. If this is happening now, just relax and enjoy the show. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Netsplit03:15
javanici'm freezing up mostly when i click on "dash home" but also randomly... then i have to reboot to get going again03:15
wilee-nileejavanic, how did it run from the live cd?03:16

bobdobalinasyslog may provide some valuable info, especially if you write down the exact time when you notice it is freezing03:23
javanic<wilee-nilee> thanks03:23
javanic<bobdobalina> don't know how to do that, or what it would mean lol03:24
Mio-chanWell javanic, bobdobalina's right on syslogs. My only advice right now is you could try installing graphics drivers (assuming you're on 12.10, you would go to software sources, and then 'additional drivers')03:25
javanic<Mio-chan> i am on 12.10, but how do i get to "software sources"? unfortunately it's been freezing so much i haven't been able to play around to find all the settings and such03:26

KyeRussellHi all. Where does the wpa_supplicant package on Ubuntu get its driver list from? I've compiled iand installed a ralink driver, yet wpa_supplicant doesn't acknowledge that the driver exists (isn't in the driver list, etc).04:15
Saberu4net split?04:16
The_Rufusso to be clear, everything to do with .torrent files is working fine. But when I BKSP and load.start> a magnet link it will work fine until such time as I restart, then rtorrent only re-loads the .torrent files and not the magnet links. Files for both are still sitting there complete/incomplete.04:16
xiangjianfengtomreyn thanks..fri..04:17
The_Rufusif I paste the magnet back into rtorrent, the files pick up where they left off04:17

ph0enixsssure. i got lxc set up on my 12.04 host using the ubuntu-lxc ppa's and a custom kernel (so that almost everything in lxc-checkconfig reports that it's enabled)... i followed the serverguide https://help.ubuntu.com/12.04/serverguide/lxc.html to create a (default) precise container. now, i was able to have that host boot, but it wasnt getting a proper dhcp eth0 address. i corrected that using isc-dhcp-server.04:18

|Slacker|I've been experiencing it for the last 40 days no matter what repo I use04:43
dodo3773KyeRussell: Are you trying to use wpa_supplicant directly? Also, drivers are handled by the kernel. Is the right module loaded? If you look through dmesg does it tell you the card loaded? Does your card require firmware && did you install said firmware?04:43
dodo3773|Slacker|: Do you have a firewall running?04:44
|Slacker|nope...and I've just reinstalled ubuntu yesterday from scratch04:44
dodo3773|Slacker|: You can browse the web and ping domains/ips and all that though yeah?04:45
KyeRusselldodo3773: I'm trying to use it directly, it's running on Ubuntu server (don't ask) so I can't exactly use networkmanager or anything. I'm fairly sure the right module is loaded as the device shows up in iwconfig, modprobe worked.etc. when I run wpa_supplicant without any flags it shows the list of drivers I can use, and ralink is nowhere to be seen.04:45

KyeRussellI've created a wpa_supplicant.conf file, when I try to run it without the driver flag (with wext driver I'd imagine) I get errors. I'm trying to auth to an 802.1x network so I don't imagine wext drivers will work with my chipset04:46
bray90820Does Gwibber have touch controls04:47
dodo3773KyeRussell: Oh. Hmm. The only one I've ever used has been wext04:49
|Slacker|I even tried a different repo, from my own city and still I get the error04:49
dodo3773KyeRussell: Just to verify this is what you did yeah: wpa_passphrase mywireless_ssid "secretpassphrase" >> /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf && wpa_supplicant -B -Dwext -i wlan0 -c /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf04:50
dodo3773KyeRussell: Where /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf is whereever the conf directory on your system is04:50
KyeRussellWhen I do that, I get an error, something about not being able to communicate properly with the driver.04:51
dodo3773|Slacker|: That is pretty strange.04:51
|Slacker|yeah...tell me about it...04:51
KyeRussellThe readme for my chipset's driver says I need to use the ralink driver with wpa_supplicant (i.e. -Dralink)04:51
KyeRussellwhen I do that, wpa_supplicant tells me the driver doesn't exist.04:52
ubuthetechguruhi guys04:52
Guest96914tfw no drivers04:52
KyeRusselland when i run wpa_supplicant without any flags it shows a list of drivers available for me, and it's supposed to show ralink amongst those drivers, which it doesn't.04:52
|Slacker|now it worked fine, I guess my connection or dns is somehow screwed up04:53
|Slacker|I'll check with my provider tomorrow04:53
|Slacker|thanks for the help dodo377304:53
dodo3773KyeRussell: Does 802.1x mean that the network is not wpa/wpa2 encrypted?04:55
