Jordan_Ultrottier_: mkswap creates a new swap "filesystem" with a new UUID. You need to adjust your /etc/fstab to match.06:02
tomreynltrottier_: so you have a swap partition in /etc/fstab but the UUID given there is wrong. run blkid on the partition which is to contain your swap (and which you have ensured doesn't contain important data and which you have run mkswap on)06:03
ltrottier_swap on works now06:04
tomreyndwarder: seriously? well i don't run bind, but this really seems like the wrong location to store temporary files. maybe you have it chrooted with a link in /etc?06:04

wwwdotcomMy system again starts in default 1024x768 resolution.06:47
OpenSorceSlart, nope no output in terminal06:49
tomreynwwwdotcom: do you have a file /etc/X11/xorg.conf ? if so, can you üpst it to a pastebin, please?06:49
mozatomreyn, :) It works (at least it's printing something when i now ask the test page) The printer-driver-escpr also updated a bunch of things.06:49
mozatomreyn, thank you a lot!06:50
tomreynmoza: hmm did your system upgrade not complete sucessfully maybe?06:50
mozaIt might be the case.06:50
mozatomreyn, I don't know if there is a way to upgrade a posteriori?06:50
OpenSorceSlart, however deleting the entire contents and repartitioning worked06:51
SlartOpenSorce: not really sure what to try then06:51
tomreynmoza: try this (but don't confirm when asked): sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade06:51
tomreynmoza: the question would be, does this list a lot of files to install?06:51
mozatomreyn, ok, i'll try and come back to you.06:52
tomreyngood luck06:52
mozatomreyn, ok, no, not at all, 0 (things) to update/install06:52
mozatomreyn, but i had a weird upgrade. I run out of space mid-upgrade and nearly lost access to my raid array. Then i manage to salvage things, make some more space and finish the thing. Then first thing i did was to use gnome classic. In all that i understand there might be specific problems that went unnoticed.06:54
tomreynmoza: and "apt-cache policy" lists only references to "12.04" or "precise"?06:54
wwwdotcomtomreyn: No. I don't think so. There's no xorg.conf file in X11 directory. I think it's gdm setup. Here are the contents of /etc/gdm/Init/Default file, http://paste.ubuntu.com/5591781/06:54
wwwdotcomLine 13 has been added by me later.06:55
mozatomreyn, yes it does, only 12.04 or precise.06:55
moza(in passing, thanks for teaching me basic checking commands tomreyn )06:56
tomreynmoza: then i guess you can be fine. you could reinstall all packages to be sure.06:56

bray90820histo: i can't even get that far09:23

bray90820i can get into the uefi by holding down the volume button09:30
histo3bray90820: You cannot boot a linux kernel on it trust me. I wasted weeks of time before I realized what the issue was.  Once you overcome the fact that no distros even have 32bit efi images for grub. Then you will realize the kernel won't work with that CPU.09:30
bray90820but then where do i go from there09:30
bray90820histo3: i am aware it won't work09:31
histo3bray90820: you bug a kernel dev or intel to write support for that CPU, and notify me when it's present in the kernel so I can run linux on my tablet as well.09:31

histo3bray90820: Booting anything other than windows or stupid 32bit efi applicaitons that will get you no where. ATM the device only runs Windows09:34
bray90820but you were able to boot something atleast09:34
bray90820how did you do it09:34
bray90820even if it did hang09:35
histo3bray90820: I didn't boot anything just used a efi application09:35
bray90820lets pretend ubuntu worked09:35
bray90820how would i boot it09:35
histo3bray90820: You would boot off of usb with 32bit efi grub to load the kernel.09:36
bray90820but how09:36
cholbyI dated a guy named Ubuntu once.09:36
cholbyHe would "play the bongos" on my ass.09:36
histo3bray90820: if you want to see grub or efi shell load partition a thumbdrive with gdisk or cgdisk and create an efi partition. then format that partition to fat32 and put your grub32 bit file or 32bit efi shell file there. It will then be in the boot menu09:37
bray90820histo3: why wouldn't this work09:37
histo3bray90820: Because you have a 32bit cpu and ubuntu doesn't have efi support for anything 32bit at the moment09:38
histo3bray90820: also the linux kernel doesn't support your CPU09:38
bray90820i have a 64bit cpu09:38
histo3bray90820: please take 5 seconds and read this https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atom_(system_on_chip)#Operating_system_support_on_Cloverview09:38
histo3bray90820: No you don't have a 64bit cpu09:39
bray90820yes i do09:39
histo3bray90820: Intel has announced that it won't provide support for Linux on Cloverview family of Atom systems-on-a-chip.[49][50] This announcement has caused strong negative reaction from open source proponents.[51] A few days later Intel issued a statement saying that it has “plans for another version of this platform directed at Linux/Android"[51][52]09:39

histo3bray90820: I have to go i'll be back on in about an hour if you want to discuss further.  For some reading you can see people struggling with other tablets that have your CPU like the Dell Latitude 10 or the acer iconia w500 I believe.09:44
bray90820i will be in bed09:45
bray90820but thanks anyways09:45
histo3gustav: servers09:45
bray90820but yes i do have an x86 processor09:45
gustavhisto3: But isn't it mostly a co-incidence that Linux runs on it? Like it was in the beginning.09:45
histo3bray90820: You can boot and load 32bit efi shell . Its on sourceforge somewhere. but you can only boot it from usb or plopping it in your current efi partition.09:45
histo3gustav: No idea I just know that this CPU will not run a linux kernel.09:46
histo3gustav: or anything other than Windblows09:46
gustavhisto3: Lazy hackers.09:46
histo3gustav: Who is?09:46
snugglor it includes some media-industry BS that they cant distribute09:47
gustavhisto3: Kernel developers. Linux runs on Macbook which isn't supposed to run anything other than Mac OS X.09:47
snugglso they release a new version without it09:47
snugglwouldnt be the first time09:47
histo3gustav: I idon't think they are lazy they do lots of work. As more people have this CPU someone smarter than I will be able to write code to make it work. And then I'd assume some of the distros would have 32bit efi grub files due to the demand.09:48
gustavhisto3: I have no idea why it doesn't work.09:48
histo3gustav: Probably some new instruction set or something goofy that hangs the kernel09:49
gustavWords like "demand" are just stop words.09:49
histo3Either way I have to go be back in an hour.09:49

OtieIn installed Ubuntu 12.10 64-bit yesterday, on a 20GB Ext4 partition (tried Ext2 as well) and when I start my computer it boots straight to Windows 7, how can I choose what to boot to?10:23
hachreOtie: if everything went well with the installation of the bootloader a menu should come up with a 5 second or so timer10:25
hachreOtie: did you get any error messages during installation?10:25
OtieNo, I didn't. I wasn't connected to the internet during installation and I didn't hear anything about bootloader10:25

OtieYes I did.10:26
hachreOtie: one ext4 partition 20gb and thats it?10:26

Yonneyhi all, is compiz working nicely with the latest ubuntu LTS?13:43
auronandaceYonney: it is used by default in unity13:43
Yonneyauronandace: with access to "all" those various compiz-addons that is part of Lucid Lynx?13:44
auronandaceYonney: 12.04 is precise, not lucid13:45
=== jwkokc is now known as jk_
Yonneyauronandace: I meant the previous LTS, Lucid.13:45
auronandaceYonney: desktop support for 10.04 ends this month13:45
Yonneyauronandace: (meaning: that the same variety of compiz-addons is possible also on Pangolin?)13:45
awcauronandace, thanks!13:46

Yonneyauronandace: I am considering if I should reinstall with 10.04.4 for another year, or go with 12.04, but I strongly dislike the new unity, I want to stick with gnome and compiz13:47
MartynKeigherFNhey have an ftp server 'hosting' Q. my main domain (www.mydomain.com) is hosted with hosting company but i am setting up a home server in a subdomain (lab.mydomain.com). in the DNS, ftp is pointed to mydomain.com, but i ALSO need ftp access to my sub-domain. how can i achieve this?13:48
auronandaceYonney: 10.04 desktop support ends very shortly, gnome2 support ends with it13:48
YonneyI have also checked out the new Mint, but dont like it either13:48
MartynKeigherFNmy home server is on ubuntu...i know thats irrleveant, but dont know where-else to ask. ;)13:48
Yonneyauronandace: but security updates will go on for both of them for another year, even if support stops?13:48
auronandaceYonney: i was pleasantly surprised with unity in 12.0413:49
auronandaceYonney: no, support continues only for server13:49
Yonneyauronandace: desktopwise, I dont like 12.04 - or at least not if I cannot easily use the old style navigation in addition, with just a click or shortkey13:50
snugglwhats the diffrence?13:50
Yonneyauronandace: but more importantly, is all the important additions I use in compiz, will not change if I cannot bring such features along13:50
snugglthe menu is at left instead of bottom, else its just a bit more graphical13:50
auronandaceYonney: using some features of compiz can break unity, you could try compiz with xfce instead if you want13:51
YonneyI want to place single-click shortcut icons on sidebars that can be hidden or shown with their own defaults, left, right, top and bottom13:51
awcI am having an issue with 13.04, but #ubuntu+1 is seemingly empty. Perhaps someone here could help? I installed today's updates, and it seems to have broken unity or compiz. The status bar at the top of the desktop and the dash/home bar on the left side of my screen are missing. running compiz --replace in the terminal is ineffective, and "sudo service lightdm restart" to restart unity results in a black screen with a flashing orange "_"13:52
YonneyI notice that several people have problems with some of this, and I dont want to loose the _very_ stable environment I have right now.13:52
ActionParsnipYonney: lxpanel, gnome panel and so on can do that, so can avant window navigatr and docky etc13:53
Yonneyauronandace: I would choose the gnome-desktop variant, perhaps even Mint with gnome desktop instead of ubuntu 12.04, but I am leaning towards using Lucid for another year first13:54
auronandaceYonney: desktop support for 10.04 ends THIS MONTH13:55
YonneyActionParsnip: yes, but this would be a working environment, which I have no time to use for testing out what works or not, just want to have another clean install13:55
JustSighDudesWhen is 13.04 coming out?13:55
awcJustSighDudes the Beta is available now, but I believe at the end of the month13:55
Yonneyauronandace: what exactly does that mean, that the "support" ends now, it will still continue to push security updates until next year, or am I wrong?13:56
BluesKajJustSighDudes, apr 2513:56
awcJustSighDudes given my current issues with the beta I wouldn't install it until the 25th13:56
JustSighDudesawc: Aw :(13:56
auronandaceYonney: support ends this month, i can't really make it more clearer13:56
auronandaceYonney: desktop packages will no longer get any updates whatsoever13:56
auronandaceYonney: from next month only server is supported in 10.0413:57
k1l_Yonney: no, there will be no security updates after this month for the desktop packages.13:57

MartynKeigherFNI have an ftp server 'hosting' Q -->  My main domain (www.mydomain.com) is hosted with a hosting company and i have setup a home server in a subdomain of it (lab.mydomain.com). In the DNS, there is a CNAME record for FTP and its pointed to mydomain.com, but i "ALSO" need ftp access to my sub-domain. how can i achieve this? I know i can "change" FTP to the IP of my home server, but i dont want to affect connectivity to the FTP that is at my host 14:01
theadminprappl93: sudo apt-get install linux-image-generic will give you the latest official kernel, unless you installed your new one from a third-party repo (if that's the case, disable that repo)14:01
prappl93theadmin: I downloaded the new one from kernel.ubuntu.com and manually installed it via dpkg14:02
theadminprappl93: Eh...14:02
theadminprappl93: Anyway, get rid of linux-image-3.6.3-generic or whatever and install linux-image-generic14:02
KyeRussellcname records do not affect what services are available on your domain MartynKeigherFN14:02
ActionParsnipprappl93: you can hold SHIFT at boot and select the older kernel.14:03
KyeRussellthey merely point certain names (e.g. blah.yourdomain.com) to servers14:03
MartynKeigherFNso if add a cname record of 'ftp' to lab.mydomain.com it should just work14:03
KyeRussellin saying that, you should still be able to connect to the ftp server on lab.yourdomain.com, assuming that you have an ftp server running14:03
KyeRussellno, you misunderstand how dns works14:04
MartynKeigherFNi'll try it. didnt think it would be that easy!14:04
KyeRussellCNAME records point IP addresses to domain names14:04
MartynKeigherFNi do have ftp setup14:04
KyeRusselle.g. the ip address -> something.mydomain.com14:04
KyeRussellnow every service taht you access by connecting to is now available on something.mydomain.com14:04
theadminKyeRussell: That's an A record14:04
KyeRussellit's pretty much an alias14:04
KyeRusselloh my bad14:05
KyeRussellsomehost.something.com -> something.mydomain.com14:05
MartynKeigherFNthe mainsite is hosting in location A and my subdomain is in location B, different IP's. there is already a cname for FTP that points to my main domain14:05

KyeRussell1gbit isn't slow :/14:12
_emperor_no working14:12
KyeRussellis there some sort of file i/o bottleneck? slow hard drives, etc.14:13
ActionParsnipnashant: depends on its up speed, if it is over WWW then it will not go at 1Gbps down, it will be asymetric (hence ADSL), so you need to look at that speed14:13
ActionParsnipKyeRussell: depends on the needs14:13
nashantActionParsnip: It's on lan14:13
KyeRussellso symmetric14:13
_emperor_I saw that command low internal audio volume, but I went up and replayed the audio level and nothing.14:14

talpurmembers pla help to resolve error mention in this paste http://paste.ubuntu.com/5592527/14:14
KyeRusselli doubt nashant is dealing with that environment ;)14:14
nashantKyeRussell: Shouldn't be a problem with the drives. get dd disk to disk transfers of about 200M14:14
_emperor_I probably ruined any audio upgrade14:14
KyeRusselluh, any other network congestion?14:15
nashantnope, not quite. Just me, on my own14:15
KyeRussellnot a slow switch14:15
KyeRussellor something14:15
ActionParsnipnashant: so your slowest speed is 145Mbps. What technology are you using to transfer the data?14:15
nashantTried changing the encryption protocol to arcfour14:15
ActionParsnipKyeRussell: but a sweeping statement of "1Gbps isn't slow" isn't always the case, is my point :)14:16
KyeRussellfair enough14:16

JoeyJoeJoI built a deb using 'checkinstall scons install' and it puts the binary file in /usr/local/sbin. How do I change it so it installs to /usr/sbin instead?15:38
theadminJoeyJoeJo: checkinstall is a wrapper around "make install". The ./configure provided by the package probably has a --prefix option, set that to /usr15:39
YonneyActionParsnip: I did also ask in #grub, but not enough feedback15:40
JoeyJoeJotheadmin: The package I'm compiling (gpsd) uses scons instead of ./configure. So would I have to set the prefix in scons?15:40
wilee-nileeYonney, So what is the problem?15:40

Yonneywilee-nilee: I have two OSes installed already, on a computer which has 2 physical hard drives with several partitions each. Now I will install a 3rd OS (Pangolin), but want to have some control on the boot menu, and know BEFORE I install, how I can get back to where I was, if something fails...15:45
coolotare you there thomas?15:46
ActionParsniplorddune: scroll up, the question replies will be useful15:46
wilee-nileeYonney, what OS's and which would you like to have control?15:46
Yonneyspecifically: I want to know that I am able to easily fix so I can boot into the old(present) OS afterwards, in case the installation is messed up, and the boot menu has changed or does not work...15:47
wilee-nileeYonney, What OS's are there now?15:47
Yonneywilee-nilee: the current OS in control is Ubuntu, using grub, and I want to know exactly where that grub installation is now before I make any changes. I dont know how or where to look to see where grub is installed right now.15:48
agonhello, there15:49
YonneyI know where to find its menu, and make adjustments to it, though, but I am unsure as of what exactly is "booting" it: I assume the MBR, but which MBR (2 hard disks...)15:49
wilee-nileeYonney, The bootloader is in the mbr that is the key, whichever OS is at the top of the grub menu is the controlling OS with grub.15:49
Yonneywilee-nilee: yes, I know that, but how do I locate grub? Is it the MBR of sda or sdb?15:50
wilee-nileeYonney, All you really need to know is how to reload the mbr, locating grub is not what you need.15:51
Yonneywilee-nilee: since I have 2 MBRs, I think it is quite important that I deal with the correct one, and leave the other alone, therefore I need to know which one loads grub...15:52
wilee-nileeYonney, On a ubuntu install if you do a manual install you can point the grub bootloader where you want basically, a partition or the mbr. A partition would be to save the control to the one you have now.15:52
Yonney(because I have 2 physical hard drives...)15:52
wilee-nileeYonney, Is this a uefi setup?15:52
Yonneyno uefi, standard bios, 2+ year old machine15:53
wilee-nileeYonney, There is a bootscript we use to identify key parts such as what mbr contains what and what grub files are in a OS, or boot files say in a windows setup and other ket info.15:54
Yonneywilee-nilee: yes, but I want to continue adding to the existing menu, and keep the current one in control, just need to know where it is and how to fix it if someting fails...15:54
wilee-nileeYonney, TO keep the one in control in control do a manual inastall from the something other option, then point grub to the / of the install then run sudo update-grub in the controlling OS.15:56

cocoa117pans : TTY=pts/3 ; PWD=/usr/lib/nagios/plugins ; USER=root ; COMMAND=/usr/sbin/smartctl -H /dev/sda18:43

stephenjudkinsbut it really depends how much your time is worth18:48
beancocoa117: the best solution there is to allow sudo w/ no password for just that command18:49
beancocoa117: it's usually not a good idea to run a whole service as root, though, especially one that is running arbitrary commands, like nagios.18:49
cocoa117bean, so how to do it? i already set the /etc/visudo file with this line18:50

cocoa117bean, i still got permission deny message18:50

GundarrZ03obc).   A fellow Ubuntu user on Google+ posted this and person commented on it (http://bit.ly/17SIl16).   Considering the age of my laptop, could I still UPGRADE to the **QUANTEL Long-Term Support** X.org packages like my Google+ acquaintance???19:24

OerHeksoday found this one, not sure this manual still works, or the notes at the bottom > https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RestrictedFormats/BluRayAndHDDVD21:59
SonikkuAmericanerder: What did you want to change it to?21:59
Jordan_Uj-4: Why do you have a separate /boot/ partition in the first place?21:59
odayOerHeks, thanks, i'll check it out.21:59
nerderi'm just starting wine, for play a MMORPG game, this game is able to configure the resolution before you start playing22:00
j-4jordan_u efficiency i guess?22:00
nerderif i try to put that game in full screen mode, the resolution become to 800x60022:00
j-4my home is also on a different drive22:00
j-4but that isnt the prob22:00
nerderand right now i cant do nothing for reset to the default settings22:00
Jordan_Uj-4: Having a separate /boot/ partition doesn't make anything more efficient.22:00
SonikkuAmericanerder: Are there in-game settings to change that.22:01
j-4i followed a guide.22:01
nerdereven if i try to change from 800x600 to 832x624 the monitor become black22:01
nerderbut right now everything is closed, wine as well22:01
nerderi thik22:01
SonikkuAmericanerder: What is listed in System Settings > Displays?22:01
Jordan_Uj-4: I'd say copy your /boot/ contents over to the /boot/ directory on your root partition, remove the /boot/ entry from your fstab, re-install grub (grub-install /dev/sdX && update-grub) then get rid of your /boot/ partition entirely.22:02
Jordan_Uj-4: Sounds like it was a poor guide to follow.22:02
nerderjust my display Samsung 17'' , the list of the possible resolution etc22:03
j-4jordan_u this all started from a prompt telling me that my /boot/ was running low on disk space. is this true? i thought 300mb was enoug22:04
wilee-nileej-4, The full partition looks like the root partition the one marked boot is fine.22:04
odayIs there a pastebin application for ubunt?22:05
wilee-nilee!pastebinit | oday22:05
ubottuoday: pastebinit is the command-line equivalent of !pastebin - Command output, or other text can be redirected to pastebinit, which then reports an URL containing the output - To use pastebinit, install the « pastebinit » package from a package manager - Simple usage: command | pastebinit -b http://paste.ubuntu.com22:05

j-4since nothing is blocking it. and ill worry about the boot partition later22:06

SonikkuAmericalevolent: What's your Broadcom WiFi model?22:24
levolenti was told i need to do something with Firmware Cutter but I have no idea what.22:24
nerderi have the same one, witch is your problem?22:24
levolent0b:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Broadcom Corporation BCM4311 802.11b/g WLAN [14e4:4311] (rev 01)22:24
SonikkuAmericalevolent: You can use firmware-b43-installer now.22:24
levolentalready tried that22:24
levolentits not showing any SSID and its resting on top a router22:25
levolentso what the b43 firmware-installer and !broadcom both fail, what then?22:26
altinguys I installed bumblebee drivers and my screen won't suspend now :S22:27
SonikkuAmericalevolent: Good question... did the firmware-b43-installer fail due to "Unable to locate package"?22:27
levolentI ran "sudo apt-get update" then22:27
levolentsudo apt-get install firmware-b43-installer22:27
levolentsudo apt-get remove bcmwl-kernel-source" and rebooted22:28
levolentand nothing22:28
levolentdidn't see any errors at all, including the one you asked about22:28
levolentI do still have 6 firmware warns tho22:28
ZrZeRenatono bother, i just fix skype issues by reinstalling it.22:28
SonikkuAmericalevolent: Do you have an Internet (hard) connection on the computer with the Broadcom card?22:28
Kyzz[Mobile]Is there a reason after a certain amount of time I can no longer connect to websites with my Wifi?  It's still connected but just is an awful connection22:29
levolentthats how i am talking here22:29
=== maitake_ is now known as maitake
=== Jikan is now known as Jikai
Nisstyre-laptopKyzz[Mobile]: there could be a multitude of reasons. It could even be because you have an aquarium.22:29
levolenttheres a list of my current firmware warns and bugs22:30
Kyzz[Mobile]Nisstyre-laptop: I'm on university internet and I didn't have issues on a Windows OS...22:30
levolentit was 11 originally then ActionParsnip got it down to 622:30
ZrZeRenatoanother question... i read once ago, about wireless connections issues, and i see my internet is not working nice, is there any trick to deal with that?22:30
Nisstyre-laptopKyzz[Mobile]: well they aren't using the same drivers22:30
SonikkuAmericalevolent: You ditched bcmwl-kernel-source? You shouldn't have...22:30
Nisstyre-laptopso there's one variable22:30
levolentHarris came alone and wasted about half hour and brought it up to 922:30
Kyzz[Mobile]Nisstyre-laptop: What do you mean by that exactly?22:30
levolentI was just following ActionParsnips instruction here22:31
SonikkuAmericaNisstyre-laptop: An aquarium... somewho I doubt that. :)22:31
nerderSonikkuAmerica, could you help me?22:31
levolentso what do I do now?22:31
nerderi dnt know how can i do22:31
SonikkuAmericanerder: Do what again? (It's been about an hour)22:31
SonikkuAmericalevolent: reinstall the bcmwl-kernel-source as well as the firmware-b43-installer22:32
levolenttried guessing 2 commands in terminal and neither worked22:33
Nisstyre-laptopKyzz[Mobile]: I mean windows is not using the same drivers as Linux (unless you're using ndiswrapper, but you should not be)22:33
levolentsudo apt-get firmware-b43-installer   and  sudo apt-get b43-firmware-installer both failed22:33
SonikkuAmericalevolent: I know why... because the command is [ sudo apt-get install ], not just [ sudo apt-get ].22:34
JJRamboHey, I've got a simple research assignment where I compare Windows/Ubuntu. Is there a way for me to check which security utilites Ubuntu has.22:34
SonikkuAmericalevolent: I assume you're using Precise or Quantal?22:34
levolentubuntu and terminal22:34
JJRamboFor example, Windows has windows defender and Windows Firewall.22:34
Nisstyre-laptopJJRambo: define "security utilities"22:34
Kyzz[Mobile]Nisstyre-laptop: Any suggestions then?22:34
Nisstyre-laptopKyzz[Mobile]: try a different driver22:35
levolentsaid i already have the newest vs22:35
Nisstyre-laptopor try tweaking your current one22:35
JJRamboDoes Ubuntu have something similar to that or is security configured in a completely different way?22:35
Nisstyre-laptopJJRambo: Linux has iptables which is a firewall22:35
JJRamboNisstyre-laptop: Like how Windows has an inbuilt anti-virus called Defender and firewall.22:35
threex5I would like to know what version ID3 tags a given mp3 has. Is there a tool in Ubuntu where I can get that information22:35
levolentk the bcmwl-kernel-source is installing22:36
Kyzz[Mobile]Nisstyre-laptop: I'm not even sure how to view my current driver.  (I'm new to Ubuntu)22:36
JJRamboNisstyre-laptop: Thanks I'll check that out.22:36
levolentdo i need to reboot after that?22:36
Nisstyre-laptopJJRambo: Unix systems generally don't have antivirus programs, and even when they do they check for windows viruses to avoid passing them on22:36
levolentcause he had me reboot after removing them22:36
SonikkuAmericanerder: Are you sill there?22:36

t3hb055nuebDr_Willis: I am new to ubuntu, but I am learning fast. How would I add something to said usb, so It has on file drivers for any hardware it comes across.  Would like a fully operable os on the flash drive, that works on any pc. Internet or not.23:14
t3hb055nuebEven some direction in how to proceed with that would be nice.23:15
tor_t2hb055nueb: yes23:15
tor_just down load iso23:16
Dr_Willist3hb055nueb:  then use a live-persistant install if you are going to be moveing it around from one pc to another a lot.23:16
Dr_Willist3hb055nueb:  not a 'full' normal install.23:16
tor_boot from a cd23:16
tor_then choose the usb installer software23:16
ubottuUbuntu 13.04 (Raring Ringtail) will be the 18th release of Ubuntu, Discussion and support until final release in #ubuntu+123:16
Dr_Willislive persistant install -> basically same as booting from cd + ability to save stuff to the usb23:17

SonikkuAmericaYou're welcome.23:32
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/Netsplit23:32
levolentthanks again guys! later23:33

t3hb055nuebthis is what I should be looking at? for a livecd on a usb, that can save to itself be customized further after implemention?23:36

t3hb055nuebDr_Willis: You mean start simple and then go from there?23:37
Dr_Willist3hb055nueb:   keep it simple. ;)23:37
t3hb055nuebWhat does extreme get you?23:37
t3hb055nuebYea yea, lightweight.23:37
Dr_Willisnot lightweight.. keep it close to the default setup for what you install.. anything else you install will slow it down a bit / and make your save file bigger. and in the case of some drivers might not work properly23:38
tor_so, how would you go about to get ATI graphics going on 12.10?23:39
t3hb055nuebThe save file on the usb should be kept small then?23:39
t3hb055nuebUsing a 16gig usb.23:39

nerderthis one is my xorg.config.failsafe23:50
Dr_Willisnerder:  if other users work.. and one user does not.. then that tells me that the problem user has a config file thats the issue.23:50
nerderDr_Willis, umm, how can i check it?23:51
Dr_Willistheres some setting file in the users home dir that sets a res for that user. or use that monitors/display tool to set the res23:51
Dr_Willissystem settings -> display23:51
nerderDr_Willis, if i try to set the resolution the monitor become totally black23:51
nerderand i have to reboot23:51

nerderDr_Willis, nothing.23:54
Dr_Willis'nothing' tells us.. just that ... 'nothing'.... what do you mean23:55
harrisis the a free pdf for python for kids23:55
slobad23harris, I'm sure you can find one, even if there isn't supposed to be.23:55
nerderDr_Willis, i'll explain, so if i restart the X serv the login module page is at the correct resolution, but when i logged in23:55
nerdereverything is the same23:56
Dr_Willisnerder:  and other USERS work correctly?23:56
xibalbaanyone know of an IRC daemon appliance? Turnkey Linux Style?23:56
SonikkuAmericaDr_Willis: Is this where we say to nerder he should trash the .Xauthority?23:56
Dr_Willisso.. look in  th problem users Home and  .config dirs for the setting file that sets the resolution, and remove it23:56
Dr_Willisnerder:  so the ONLY issue is the res is incorrect?23:57
nerderso i run ls -a in the home dir23:57
nerderi delete .Xauth23:58
nerderand after that i change resolution, is that correct?23:58
Dr_Willis.Xauthority issues would stop you from logging in.. not affect your res./ theres Some other file that does the res. and i dont recall its name23:58
nerderthere is .xsession-errors23:59
