BluesKajmr-rich, snd-intel is listed twice , so do you have just one soundcard ?  the onboard intel as default , which would be card000:01
calimero_82i've ubu 12.1000:01

mr-richBluesKaj: it's stuck on "Analog Stereo Duplex" in system settings ... can't changed it to anything else ... always reverts back00:02
calimero_82I can not hear anything00:03
mr-richBluesKaj: I saw that ... there's also a Juniper card in system settings, but I have that set to off ... the Intel HDA is the onboard sound ...00:03
BluesKajmr-rich, card0 is default, ok  do you have pavucontrol installed ?, it can control the inputs and otputs of the soundcard00:03

tipoxit didnt prompt, me for to enter its root passwd00:13
SonikkuAmericatipox: Because you're currently in a root prompt, root can do whatever it wants. See the following:00:14
BluesKajyashwant, normal users should have access if the drive is shared00:14
SonikkuAmerica!root | tipox00:14
ubottutipox: Do not try to guess the root password, that is impossible. Instead, realise the truth... there is no root password. Then you will see that it is 'sudo' that grants you access and not the root password. Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo00:14

yashwantBluesKaj:but without sharing root password how normal user acccess00:14
BluesKajyashwant, read only ?00:15
yashwantBluesKaj: but it is not accessible it is asking for the password while clicking ntfs drive.00:16

Biomechdawm10: no, i haven't yet00:21
awm10Biomechd: Can you do that?00:21
somsiplmat: more importantly, is it the same as the account on the remote computer. Eg: I'm signed in as mark@local but I might connect to ubuntu@remote. So the public key needs to be saved in /home/ubuntu/.ssh/authorized_keys on the remote00:22
dr_willisi really wish they would make some sort of 'samba setup wizard/trouble shooter' for ubuntu to help people setup  shares on a mixed lan.00:22

BluesKajyashwant, then the owner has set the hdd to access only with password00:23

BitNovaHi can anyone tell me where the install dir of Bitcoin-QT is on ubuntu 13.04? i cannot seem to link it to the Armory. please help00:25
BluesKajyashwant, do you think that's wise , you need a pw and other users don't ?00:26
Biomechdawm10: i'm not seeing the ability to share stuff with computers on my network, aside from a homegroup, which i don't have.00:26
awm10I believe it would be a homegroup.00:26
yashwantBluesKaj:, see if i will share the admin password any one change the functionality, i want without asking authintication how normal user can access that partition.00:28
awm10If you're having trouble sharing a folder on your Windows computer, you could try sharing a folder on your Ubuntu computer.00:28
BluesKajyashwant, are you talking about network access to the drive or access directly from your pc , then give read only permission in the drive properties >permissions00:29

eric2_Anyone on with experience doing dual boot with win7 on a non-UEFI machine?00:31
yashwantBluesKaj:, in my system there is a windows partation also and that is in linux access only by the root password or we can change using ntfs-config software, but without ntfs-config software how we can give the accessability.00:31
BitNovatrism, thank you.. i saw the list of packages.. but it doesnt seem to list the bitcoin daemon anywhere...00:31
trismBitNova: perhaps in the bitcoind package?00:32
trismBitNova: dpkg -L bitcoind;00:32
BitNovaive only installed bitcoin-qt00:32

elisa87how can I disable nmi_watchdog interrupt?00:34
fractalineeric2_,  what is your question?00:34
somsiplmat: it should use the private key to create a token to support the connection, then the server uses the public key to decode that and send it back. If they match, the client continues with the connection. AIUI00:34
lmatssh -v -p port ipaddress     shows     "Offering RSA public key: [path to private key]"00:34
BluesKajyashwant,  as suggested earlier by awm10 , use homegroup in nautilus network options00:34
lmatsomsip: Should it be asking for my password somewhere in there?00:35
BitNovaim a newbie, so it seems like bitcoind is needed for Armory to work trism .  i only had bitcoin-qt and it worked alright on its own.00:35
somsiplmat: ssh -vv -p port user@ipaddress00:35
somsiplmat: unless your local user and remote user have the same name00:35
lmatsomsip: How do I tell what my remote user name is?00:35
somsiplmat: if you have entered a passkey for your private key it should ask for it, yes00:36
BluesKajyashwant, or workgroup00:36

Wickxor at least they refuse to02:15
Wickxwhich is annoying02:15
roothorickdaftykins: not broadcast. Cable.02:15
daftykinsthat's still broadcasting i thought02:16

Compy2In Ubuntu 12.04 (stock kernel), is there a way to run a process at the highest priority? I edited /etc/security/limits.conf and set root's niceness to -20, and I am sending data over a parallel port that requires a minimum of 2ms response time, and even running the process at -20 niceness (according to top) doesn't seem to do it.02:18
daftykinswouldn't a low latency kernel help?02:18
Compy2Like rtlinux?02:18
Compy2That'd be the obvious choice I suppose.02:19
SonikkuAmericadaftykins: linux-rt doesn't exist rt now02:19
SonikkuAmerica*oh bad sic02:19
SonikkuAmericaHowever, if you get linux-image-lowlatency it might help02:19
daftykinsyour advice should really be aimed at the person asking, not the person helping02:20
SonikkuAmericadaftykins: Guilty party aquí02:20
SonikkuAmericaCompy2: Get linux-*-lowlatency02:20
Compy2daftykins and SonikkuAmerica, I'll go check out some of those. I just wasn't sure at this point if there was anything else I could do short of modifying the scheduler :)02:21
Compy2Yeah, sounds like the way to go.02:21

needtonsofhelpjust posted my result02:54
Jordan_Uneedtonsofhelp: It sounds like the Windows recovery process did start somehow, and deleted your Ubuntu partition (and maybe your Windows one as well) completely. Did you have any data on this machine that you haven't backed up?02:54
needtonsofhelp(hd0) (hd0,msdos5) (hd0,msdos3) (hd0,msdos2) (hd0,msdos1)02:54
daftykinswhy does it think they're msdos partitions, heh :(02:54
Ben64its msdos partitions02:54
needtonsofhelpi am willing to lose the data, no idea why its reading everything as msdos02:54
Jordan_Udaftykins: Because they're partitions on a msdos partition table, as opposed to a GUID partition table, or Apple Partition Map, or...02:54
daftykinsJordan_U: ah ok, GRUB talks about them in a non-FS way02:55
dr_willismsdos is the partion type. not the filesystem of the partition ;)02:55
daftykinsfair enough02:55
daftykinsi haven't ever been graced with any education with GRUB02:55
daftykinsif it said MBR i'd have known02:55
Jordan_Udaftykins: DOS's FS is FAT anyway, not "msdos".02:56
daftykinsJordan_U: yeah, you're getting patronising now... easy there ;)02:56
Jordan_Udaftykins: But all disks have an MBR, so it's not a very good description of a type of partition table.02:56
johnjohn101how do you get the really nice grub on ubuntu that opensuse uses?02:56
johnjohn101yeah, i need to learn me some grub02:56
icedwaterMe too, just not now :P02:56
daftykinswell a >2.5TB odd disk with GPT doesn't really have an MBR i'd have thought - unless you mean in the most generic sense - 'a master boot record' i.e. pointer to what to boot02:57
daftykinsbut yeah, i've pursued that tangential thread a tad too far02:57
Jordan_Ujohnjohn101: "Really nice" in what way? Grub has theming (which Ubuntu doesn't use by default). Assuming that OpenSuSe uses grub2 you should be able to use their grub theme in Ubuntu.02:57
needtonsofhelpon boot: error:no such partition grub rescue>02:57
needtonsofhelpim assuming my partition was 2 for ubuntu, however wasnt there a recovery partition as well?02:58
johnjohn101Jordan_U: how does one do that?02:58
Jordan_Ujohnjohn101: Assuming they've done things the normal way, look for their grub theme directory in /boot/grub/, copy it to Ubuntu's /boot/grub/ and in /etc/default/grub add GRUB_THEME=/boot/grub/THEME_DIRECTORY_HERE/theme.txt, then run "sudo update-grub".02:59
icedwaterneedtonsofhelp: found it yet?02:59
needtonsofhelpicedwater got nothing amigo03:00
johnjohn101jordan_u: wondering why ubuntu doesn't do the themes03:00
icedwaterTo keep things as simple as possible is my bet.. I don't know though.03:01
daftykinsneedtonsofhelp: did you say you were in Florida? whereabouts?03:01
Jordan_Ujohnjohn101: Ubuntu hides the grub menu by default, and grub themes can slow down the grub menu (more or less depending on hardware, the theme, and the screen resolution).03:01
needtonsofhelpfort lauderdale area03:01
daftykinsneedtonsofhelp: anywhere near Ft. Lauderdale?03:01

icedwaterYou gonna help on-site, daftykins? :P03:02
daftykinsicedwater: i'm not in the US but someone in another channel is03:02
Jordan_Uneedtonsofhelp: Without any external boot media, or a way to put the internal hard drive into another computer, or an ethernet cable and someone with a computer that has a tftp server you can netboot from, you'll pretty much have to wait until you get off the boat to fix this.03:03
needtonsofhelpok, so when i get a live cd i can run grub repair03:04
dr_willistinycorelinux live cd is like a 20mb download ;)03:05
daftykinsneedtonsofhelp: this guy can give you some old CDs if you're game to go fetch them03:05
Jordan_Uneedtonsofhelp: It depends. If you no longer have an Ubuntu partition then fixing grub won't help you much.03:05
needtonsofhelplol wish i had the capability to just jump out there03:05
Jordan_Uneedtonsofhelp: How strong of a swimmer are you?03:06
daftykinsneedtonsofhelp: are you near some landmark he'd know? at a net cafe did you say?03:06

fang0654icedwater: I'm trying to get compiz to start on both at startup, but only seems to run on one of them03:10
icedwaterfang0654: yep, so my first place would be to look in ~ for a .X_something_or_the_other03:10
icedwaterThen maybe in /etc/03:11
userZJordan_U. yes the backlight, is that adjustable in ubuntu? and in mint?03:11
icedwaterBut if you're concerned about compiz, probably the compiz configuration is what you would prefer.03:11
daftykinsneedtonsofhelp: my good pal is west of pompano, "near St road 7/441" apparently - if you could get near there you could get a CD off him?03:11
icedwaterneedtonsofhelp: you steer the boat?03:12
fang0654icedwater: no luck.  I've got compiz configured fine, just getting it to startup on login03:12
icedwaterHmm, tough.03:12
Jordan_UuserZ: Yes, it's possible to change the screen brightness. I'm working from Lubuntu at the moment so I don't have the same settings GUI, but it should be in "System Settings" somewhere.03:12
needtonsofhelp7/441 is miles inland03:12
userZmint is really dim default03:13
needtonsofhelpwell guys, you are very appreciated, however, i believe that this problem will require me to do more that grub rescue alone03:13

voignarwierd sort of question. I recently had a laptop die on me, due to the graphics card. I tried putting the hard drive from that laptop into my new one. The Ubuntu install works great, but the WIndows install doesn't. I'm relatively sure that all I'm missing is one driver from Windows. Is it possible for me to install the driver from Ubuntu, for Windows?03:33
voignar(if th question is better for the forums, just point me in the right direction and I'll be on my way :))03:34
daftykinsvoignar: are you trying to boot the Windows install from that second hard disk on the new laptop?03:35
dr_willisvoignar:  may  be better to ask in #windows also03:35
daftykinsi'm more puzzled as to what you mean03:35
voignardaftykins, its one hard drive, dual booting with wubi.03:35

dr_willisso it would be a good idea to plan on moving to a normal install in the future03:39
Soulflare3You get a faster install with a normal install anyway :/03:39

daftykinsmostly i just cringe when people come on here and ask for help fixing their WUBI installs03:40
daftykinsor getting data back from them03:40
dr_willisat least this time wubi is the life-saver  not the rock03:40
daftykinsi mean, if they're not happy at command line, getting someone to mount NTFS from a LiveCD to start is just insane :(03:40
daftykinstrue, but as you pointed out he's gotta undo that scenario to progress03:41
daftykinswe should really be able to decouple installation order from computers, if you get me?03:41
daftykinseasier with multiple disks i suppose03:41
daftykinsi got tired of multiboot 'cause you couldn't easily reinstall one without messing with the others to some extent03:42
voignarwubi was a nice way to have people try out ubuntu for the first time. Real easy install and all that.03:47
icedwaterI haven't seen wubi in a long time, they switched it to just a "reboot to try Ubuntu" dialog box, right?03:49
voignarsomething like that yah. Loads less intimidating then using a live cd to set it up03:49
awm10If I'm making a package and some install files need to go into users' /home/theuser directories, how do I do that?03:50

i3luefireso i am trying to "clone" my 160gb ide hdd to a newer 500gb sata hdd but i have tried several different programs and they all are taking too long. clonezilla said over 26hrs dd seems like it may be even slower and ddrescue is slower still04:06
seronisi assume  'cp'  wasnt fast enough either ?04:08
awm10If I wanted a .deb file to add an entry to the .bashrc file, I would of course want to have it append to /etc/skel. Would it be incorrect to also modify existing users' /home/*/.bashrc files?04:08
i3luefirei thought it would be slower and more prone to errors04:08
i3luefirebut i didnt try cp04:08
WeThePeopleheadphones are not working through pulseaudio, ive have tried editing the .conf files no luck04:09
somsipi3luefire: rsync is probably the safest but I doubt it will be quicker04:09
i3luefirei am talking about 400KB/s04:09
awm10i3luefire > cp -r if you're copying a directory.04:10
i3luefirethe slower drive should be able to be read at ~50MB/s04:10
somsipawm10: use the global /etc/bashrc, though whether that is a good idea I don't know. man bash and /bashrc04:10

alien64so if it worked whats the problem ?04:35
dr_willisthe installer had an option to totally erase the hard drive. :) it could have erased windows fo ryou.04:35
slicefruitsninjawell i had errors, when I was doing disk erase and install ubuntu, so I messed with the partitons and I have like 4 partions now04:36
slicefruitsninjai am going to try the wiki pages, hopefully, it fixes it.04:36
alien64it will04:36
dr_willisslicefruitsninja:  or redo the install and tell it to use the whole hard drive. and let it partion as it wants04:37
alien64dont skip any steps :)04:37

slicefruitsninjaDid I mess up really bad?04:41
dr_willissounds like the installer did not properly set up a gpt type partitions.. what you COULD do - is totally delete all partions on the hd.. with gparted. reboot the installer. then rerun the installer and let it partion as needed04:41
dr_willisthere is nothing on the hd you nee dto keep? its  just a broken new ubuntu install?04:42

slicefruitsninjashould I delete these three?04:43
dr_willishmm.. looks like thats how it should be.. from that boot-repair message..04:43
dr_willismane sure the bios-grub flag is set on the first partition04:43
dr_willismake sure.04:43
slicefruitsninjaby first partiton, do you mean the one which has Ubuntu installed?04:43

houserSwedeMike, i did this cp -R /path/to/folder/*05:05
slicefruitsninjadr_willis, i chose the erase and install ubuntu option,.05:06

dr_willisso it erased them, then remade them05:06
slicefruitsninjai erased them05:06
SwedeMikehouser: * is expanded by the shell, and then the complete string is sent to cp. So everything it expanded to will be copied recursively to the last entry * expands to.05:06

dr_willisso it should have remade the partions it needed05:06
alien64you should have picked erase and install you dont see what its doing it just does it05:06

lotuspsychjewho wanna join me in ot for android security talk06:01
Soulflare3sianhulo, java more secure? LOL06:01
sianhulounless it has root permisson or it exploit a java bug, of course06:01
slicerfruitsninjSoul no i am not touching anything it was working fine a few mins ago in the live cd, but when i inatalled it doesnt work anymore.06:01
daftykinsit's like his/her every sentence was three personalities trying to express their different conversations but with one pair of hands O_O06:01
sianhuloas long as the app isn't exploiting a bug on java, yes06:02
slicerfruitsninjRfkill unblock all didnt fix it06:02
Soulflare3sianhulo, did you happen to have VB installed and then upgrade to 13.04? like from 12.10?06:02

ezra-ssilare, I would try keyboard layout settings, there are some keys you can tweak in there, things you can disable, that might work for you with a bit of tweaking06:59

pranavezra-s: yes im missing that file. but how to restore that file ?07:08
ezra-spranav, missing which file?07:09
ezra-spranav, you have sources which are no longer available, remove them and re-do apt-get update07:09
pranavezra-s: can i remove the complete "apt" folder and redo the apt-get update :P07:10

ceti331_does unity run on the geforce 640 in 13.04. .. It Didn't on 12.1007:10
ezra-sno, just a couple or 307:10
ezra-spranav, why did you add them in the first place?07:11
chunkyheadis there a kernel update for precise? all i could find out kernel.ubuntu.com was for raring/quantal/etc07:11
ezra-spranav, I believe you can remove all in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ directory and you should be safe but if something breaks don't blame me ;P07:12
Soulflare3ceti331_, you can always test it on a live CD. My GTX 260 works out-of-the-box, so hopefully your 640 will too :)07:12
pranavezra-s: there was a site with neat ppa and apps. so i copied the url and installed those apps07:12
Soulflare3If not you can always try the proprietary drivers option07:12
ezra-spranav, you have a graphical tool to manage that too "software & updates"07:13
pranavezra-s: there are 19 files07:13
ceborceti331_: i think the problem on 12.10 where the missing headers, this is fixed in 13.0407:13
ezra-sopen the graphical tool I tell you and look in the "Other sources" tab07:13
pranavyes wait07:13
ceborwhere = was07:13
lotuspsychjeBen64: my indicator-multiload already see hd activity, would be nice to see space used aswell07:14
ceti331_So far ive seen gt220 work fine, but my 12.10 install on a core2quad reverts to 2d. The issue is i want to put my 640 in my newer core i7 pc07:14
ezra-spranav, another recommendation, it is wise not to add sources randomly without knowing exactly whats in them07:14
Ben64ceti331_: you just need the proprietary drivers. and why are  you getting such low powered cards?07:14
Soulflare3yeah 13.04 has fixed a lot of issues, it's worth a shot07:14
pranavezra-s:  will keep that in mind07:15
ezra-srandomly adding sources is a way to bring trouble easily07:15
pranavezra-s: Thanks :)07:17

chunkyheadcan i update to kernel 3.9 on ubuntu 12.04 lts?07:27
Ben64chunkyhead: you can if you really want to, but its not supported here07:28
ezra-sBen64, yes, ubuntu tend to use too cutting edge kernel which needs upgrades often07:28
Ben64ezra-s: no they don't...07:28
chunkyheadBen64, what can be the possible drawbacks? ezra-s07:28
ezra-sBen64, since we're on it you can also grab kernel source, compile it yourself and remove all ubuntu kernel binaries and headers...07:28
ezra-schunkyhead, sometimes you have to go back to console and reinstall the drivers due to certain upgrades for X.org07:29
Ben64chunkyhead: unless you need a newer kernel, why upgrade?07:29
ezra-s12.10 had lot of kernel upgrades07:29
i3luefire_xubuntmy keyboard is being flaky07:29
Ben64ezra-s: security fixes07:30
ezra-sBen64, they should have used a more stable branch then.. 3.5.... I don't really undertand why using that instead of 3.4.x07:30
chunkyheadBen64, i want to learn more about linux(rather more abt computing) frankly only reason why i am doing it.07:30
Ben64ezra-s: you might want to check kernel.org every one is getting security fixes07:30
ezra-sbut I bet they had their reasons other than being cutting edge..07:30
ezra-sBen64, I do...07:30
Ben64ezra-s: its not even cutting edge, it's the same version each time07:31
ezra-sBen64, cutting edge meaning using 3.5 for 12.10 when you had a stable longterm 3.4.x07:31
ezra-sBen64, now 3.8 in 13.04 which is stable but very short term too07:31
Ben64you should do more research07:32
ezra-sin fact 3.8 is already EOL07:32
ezra-sprobably I do07:32
Ben64LTS versions exist for stability07:33
ezra-sdozens of community members and developers will surely have more knowledgable reasons than I do, but I'm just wondering07:33
ezra-sBen64, yes, I understand that, but I'm talking about the so many issues people have with propietary drivers, although they are a nuisance they are necessary in most cases07:34
Ben64proprietary drivers have nothing to do with what kernel version non-lts ubuntu releases use07:34
chunkyheadbtw what happens when i compile a custom kernel instead of downloading it from ubuntu?07:35
chunkyheadBen64, ^07:35
Ben64what do you mean07:35
chunkyheadwhat if i download kernel from kernel.org and compile it07:36
ezra-sBen64, ask ceti331_07:36
Ben64chunkyhead: then you will have a newer kernel...07:36
chunkyheadinstead of downloading it from kernel.ubuntu.com07:36
chunkyheadBen64, no i mean what can be the pros and cons of that07:36
Ben64you'll probably end up breaking something07:37
linelevelHi. I installed Ubuntu 12.04 in an LVM on a LUKS-encrypted partition. Now when I boot, I get an LVM error (it can't find /dev/mapper/vg-root, the logical volume that mounts at /) and I get dumped into an initramfs shell. Can anyone please help me figure out why my initramfs can't see my LVM volumes?07:37
chunkyheadwill it be unrepairable?07:37
Ben64find out07:38
ezra-sone has to be very careful when you compile kernel yourself, but you can always check /boot config files for your actual kernels and see if  you are missing something when you are done configuring, it can be painful though07:38
ezra-salso, since you configure and compile yourself there are many things you won't need if you want to be specific for your hardware07:39
ezra-sIt is not recommended unless you really know what you are doing07:39

pranav1ezra-s i was installing eclipse package. the download completed. but during installation. ubuntu went to sleep. what command should fix the reinstallation process without having me to download the entire package again ?07:50
ezra-slinelevel, then you are missing hdd controller driver in the kernel loaded with initramfs or compiled-in the kernel07:50
ezra-slinelevel, If I recall well, there is an alternate install iso for 12.04 so you can encrypt and use LVM without much hassle07:50
linelevelezra-s: The alternate installer doesn't support the XTS encryption mode, which is why I used this method.07:51

LibrePenguini would like to use the CLI, dr_willis btw, what is the command for the lubuntu and xubuntu install again? I lost it in chat... Do certain repositories need to be activated for this?08:44
dr_willistheres not a text-based installer as far as i know on the live-desktop cd.08:45
dr_willis!info lubuntu-desktop08:45
ubottulubuntu-desktop (source: lubuntu-meta): Lubuntu Desktop environment. In component universe, is optional. Version 0.48 (raring), package size 2 kB, installed size 30 kB (Only available for i386; amd64; powerpc; armhf)08:45

LibrePenguindr_willis, thank you. I am having trouble with DTE, so need to work from CLI for installation. What command do i need to activate the universe repo?08:46
dr_willisi think its enbled by default08:47
dr_willischeck /etc/apt/sources.list to see if its commented out or not08:47
dr_willisim not sure if the desktop live cd/dvd has ever included the text-based installer.08:48
LibrePenguindr_willis - I can only see 3 lines in that sources file. None are the Universe line. What should the universe line look like? I will paste it in and save.08:50

EvilDMPso in effect, there is *no way around this* other than to upgrade the entire system?11:19

SwedeMikecolhester: you can boot the server and as root, change the password. Allowing this to be changed remotely without a valid user login is like the movies having an "override security" button.11:41

jamwwhen I reboot my ubuntu 12.10, it gives an error about low graphic card then ask me to select one of these options http://oi39.tinypic.com/5kf6ds.jpg however, it is not possible to select any of them although I press all buttons on the keyboard. It reacts to only "esc" bu then it returns a black screen where I can type stuff but it does not continue to any other screen. However, currently I am using windows and the graphic card works fine12:01

AtuMKuuuuuuH, if you want internet to work, you should have the default gateway set to the modem, not work network.. then for the subnet you need to reach on your work network, you should define a route that points to the work network.. i suppose your remote rdp server has an ip that's not in the subnet of your work-lan connection. it it's on the same subnet then no extra route is needed14:14

MonkeyDustChrono_  http://i.imgur.com/3N5f6.jpg14:46
DJonesChrono_: Thats probably a better question to ask in #ubuntu-offtopic, but effectivly, a distribution is Ubuntu/Debian/Slackware/Red Hat/Centos etc, a flavour is for example Ubuntu but split into Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Lubuntu etc with different desktop environments14:47
mbeierlChrono_, similar to how there are different phones you can get - different options on each, but all are cell phones14:47
SonikkuAmericaChrono_: We currently have, as well as Unity, flavors that use GNOME, KDE, XFCE, and LXDE. Special versions also exist: (a) Ubuntu !Studio for digital audio workstations, graphic and video design, (b) !Mythbuntu for MythTV PVRs, (c) Edubuntu for educational settings, and (d) Kylin (for China)14:47
SonikkuAmerica(c) should read !Edubuntu14:47

Yoshieechoe: correct, as the wheel keeps spinning kind of thing..... and it keeps stating that eth0 has disconnected for some wierd reason as a pop up.17:22
sonOfRaUpon removing the laptop from the dock, it shuts down immediately, not cleanly, but just poweroff17:22

sonOfRabetrayd, the "anyone" was kind of necessary because it is a special case, and only happens on that exact configuration.17:23
Yoshieechoe: im not sure id have to reboot and check it out to find that one, only have 1 pc right now and its running windows17:24
jribmojtaba: they probably just mean you have a cron job that's hogging resources for whatever reason17:24
sonOfRaThis only happens with ubuntu, i tried other distributions on the same hardware, and it no longer occurs.17:24
mojtabaMonkeyDust: It says that I am not allowed to use this program17:24
betraydsort of a prologue, is it battery or AC when undocked17:24
MonkeyDustmojtaba  i read here, the 'rogue cron job' is related to mac os17:24
sonOfRait should go to battery. there is no AC cable connected when undocking17:24
sonOfRa(can't be, because of the way dock is build, really)17:25
betraydunderstood sonOfRa17:25
Yoshieechoe: want me to check that out and than come back?17:25
echoeyoshie, I'd check that and also look for the model# and see if anyone reports anything about incompatibilities w/drivers with that17:26
sonOfRaHaven't tried any other Ubuntus other than 13.04/amd64, but on other distributions it works fine. Windows is fine, too17:26
echoeyou're going to need to copy and paste the information down somehow too. maybe a USB stick and a text file :P17:26
betraydyou might know where acpi-events are located, might be lacking an 'undock' event scenario and does the poweroff as fallbacl17:27

pcarson<OerHeks>Oops !  Thanks - I hate stupid questions.17:41
meganerdDreamPCs: what do you mean by "current issues"?17:42
vivekgI am having some issues with linking to pthreads. If my program while linking specifies -lpthread before -lsqlite3 then it gets all linker errors for pthread_* methods... but if I specify -lpthread later, then it links fine... any reason why?17:43
DreamPCsWell, apparently a lot of people are having issues with 13.04 (I don't know the technical details) because the 3.8* kernel and/or X has apparently dropped some support for "legacy" cards. This causes a lot of people to upgrade or do a fresh installation and end up at a terminal prompt on boot or no hardware acceleration.17:44
neighborsI installed ubuntu 12.04 desktop on one machine and 12.04 server on another, but one has a 3.2 kernel and the other a 3.517:45
neighborsI cannot figure out why they have different kernels, /etc/apt/sources.list are identical between them17:45
bekksneighbors: Install the latest kernel then. sudo apt-get install linux-image17:45
ActionparsnipNeighbors: the later installed one will have the 3.5 this is normal17:45
echoedoes the older kernel say anything specific? *is installing an old kernel on 12.04 now*17:46
bekksIntroduced with 12.04.2, the 3.5 kernel was in the repos due to a critical bugfix17:46
neighborsshouldn't a normal apt-get dist-upgrade bring the one with the 3.2 kernel up to 3.5 then?17:46
jribneighbors: only if you have the proper package installed17:46
neighborsechoe: I didn't notice a message like that17:46
bekksneighbors: Kernels arent updated automatically, you have to run the command above17:46
neighborsI see, interesting, OK let me try an apt-get install linux-image17:47
ActionparsnipNeighbors: no, all subsequent precise installs will get 3.5 its no bad thing.  Just enjoy the OS :-)17:47
neighborsI notice 3.5 is no longer on kernel.org which seems a little odd, will it go up to 3.9 at some point on its own?17:48
bekksneighbors: No.17:48
ActionparsnipNeighbors : when updates are ready, they will come17:48
linuxnewb2If you build it, they will come!17:49
meganerdDreamPCs: If nVidia drops support for "legacy" devices then there is nothing that can be done if you want to use the proprietary driver17:49
neighborsso doing an apt-get install linux-image on the box with a 3.2 kernel results in a 3.2 kernel still, do I have to specify some other package?17:50
ActionparsnipA supported gpu is usually pretty cheap too17:50
bekksneighbors: did you run sudo apt-get update before?17:50
neighborsyeah, but I can try again17:51
ActionparsnipNeighbors : is there something in the 3.5 kernel you need?17:51
DreamPCsIt's not nVidia dropping support, it's something to do with compatibility with the new X. I read somewhere that blacklisting the new nVidia driver and/or X will solve the issue. But I also read that blacklisting new X versions is a bad update if you keep the system up to date.17:51
cuddylierDoes anyone know how to allow users to access /proc/[process id]/stat? The user who is trying to access it owns the directory, e.g. /proc/2554/stat, the user mc85 might own it if it's their process. At the moment, they are just denied access, yet another machine with ubuntu I have is fine.17:51
DreamPCsAnd the video card I have (GeForce 9500 GT) is enough for this machine and I don't want to spend money for something that works in 12.10.17:51
neighborsNot at this moment, but I kind of wanted my development box and server box to be rather similar, I might play around with lxc and kvm and it's possible kernel differences might come into play, I'm not sure17:51
anddamdo I need resolvconf for a single, statically configured, interface?17:51
ActionparsnipNeighbors: is the 3.2 kernel running ok?17:52
meganerdDreamPCs: now you know why proprietary drivers suck17:52

ActionparsnipNeighbors : I believe there is a backport package but I can't remember the name17:53
DreamPCsmeganerd: What would you recommend? I either have to pay for new hardware (for a software problem) or use opensource drivers without 3d acceleration.17:53

ActionparsnipYashwant: you specify it at mount time17:54
meganerdDreamPCs: but my box at home with  a 5770 worked out of the box17:54
DreamPCsI'm not even sure if nVidia considers my card legacy or not. Normally proprietary installs are no issue for this card.17:54
meganerdDreamPCs: out of curiosity, does noveau work with your card?17:56
ActionparsnipYashwant : you will get issues with NTFS if it is not unplugged cleanly. Lots of windows users dont use safe remove before unplugging then wonder why they get issues17:56
DreamPCsIt does, without issue.17:56
meganerdDreamPCs: do you *need* the proprietary driver?17:57
DreamPCsWell, I don't "need" it but I can't really game without it. And Steam for Linux is useless without 3d acceleration. Plus, I can't watch YouTube in HD fullscreen without it.17:57
Actionparsnip Dreampcs: even with minitube?17:58
meganerdDreamPCs: on my laptop with the optimus garbage, I ended up with the PPA edgers, bumblebee PPA, and a custom built 3.8 kernel.  When I reinstall I am probably just going to disable the nvidia GPU in the BIOS17:59
DreamPCsI haven't tried with Minitube although I suspect it would work. Problem is, minitube doesn't pull links from browsers. So if I'm watching a video someone linked to on G+ for instance, I don't have a way to watch it unless I launch the app and search for the same video.17:59
DreamPCsmeganerd: Well if that's what I have to do I just won't upgrade the kernel.18:00

DreamPCsOk cool bekks, thanks for the info.18:32
meganerdDreamPCs: have you upgrade to 13.04 yet?18:33
DreamPCsI did about a week ago but because of the drivers I lost that installation. I'm running Sabayon right now but I'm about to reinstall 13.04 in a few minutes.18:34
meganerdDreamPCs: did you try the nVidia download or the nvidia-current (apt) driver?18:35
DreamPCsFirst I tried the 310 drivers in the repository. After that didn't work, I tried the 319 drivers straight from nvidias website. I got so far down the rabbit hole I eventually just installed another OS.18:36
DreamPCsOpen source drivers are fine, but whenever I install the closed sources ones either I cannot login (black screens back to login prompt) or everything is horrendously slow and 3d acceleration still doesn't work.18:36
DreamPCsIt does work however on Sabayon through the defailt installation.18:37

yeatsDreamPCs: I think it would be easier to boot into the installed version and use a terminal19:10
DreamPCsWell I can't run nvidia-settings (or whatever the command is) if the GUI is running. If I boot the installation, I would have to kill X, go to a term and do the same thing. I figured this way I at least have internet access if something goes foul.19:12

bpromptth0r:  nope :), thus my comments there :)21:46

dominic_i have a question21:48

bpromptkristenbb:   well, -> http://pastie.org/7945290     <- goes step by step :)21:49
kristenbbbprompt: this is unfortunately a list of commands I've tried before, and it didn't work.21:49
g0toelisa87, what's your current Ubuntu version?21:50
bpromptkristenbb:    well, is  a list I've used myself several times over, and worked, usually I install ubuntu 1st, then say win7, win7 kicks out grub, then I use a chroot like the pasted one, to stick grub back21:50
elisa87g0to: Ubuntu 12.04 and my gcc is gcc version 4.4.7 (Ubuntu/Linaro 4.4.7-1ubuntu2)21:50
dominic_i do : cd /downloads : doenst work21:52
kristenbbbprompt: okay, so I'm at the update-grub part, and it says cannot find list of partitions, try mounting /sys. So I exit and mount /sys and try again, right ? I've been through all that already.21:52
kristenbbthe link was not the same but the instructions were exactly equal.21:52
bpromptkristenbb:   did you mount the ssd?21:53
bpromptkristenbb:    and what did "fdisk -l" give you for the ssd?21:53
kristenbbbprompt: I didn't write any commands besides the ones in that link you gave me.21:53
bpromptkristenbb:   well, those are in the paste21:54
kristenbbbprompt: fdisk -l gives /dev/sda1 and /dev/sdb1, and a warning saying fdisk doesn't support gpt.21:54

kristenbbbprompt: but 13.04 is not on sdb1, it's on sdb2.21:56
g0todominic_, what are you trying to do? you might use the 'ls' command to list the contents in your home21:56
bekkskristenbb: fdisk does not support GPT.21:56
bpromptkristenbb:     .... ok.... then mount sbd2 :|, I was about to ask where is your installation, cuz sda may as well be an ssd21:57

bpromptkristenbb:    ok, now mount the proc and dev directories -->  sudo mount -o bind /proc /mnt/proc; sudo mount -o bind /dev /mnt/dev21:58
g0todominic_, you should try reading. There is a whole world of readings out there where you can learn lots stuff21:58

bpromptkristenbb:    you have 2 hdd, does you bios give you a boot override option?22:03
bpromptkristenbb:    I'm thinking you have a Grub in "sda" and is the one bios is booting with22:03
kristenbbbprompt: yes, I tried to launch both, and both give the same error message. grub error: no such partition22:04
ActionParsnipjolsiphur: what does the nas use to share on the lan?22:04
jolsiphurIt's using WINS to the best of my knowledge.22:05
bpromptkristenbb:    "no such partition" just means Grub is trying to access a nonexisten UUID or path, so, whatever Grub is kicking in, is very oudated and looking for old paths/devices, so not sure what you have in sda or .... whatever else, but I know the chrooting works22:06
ActionParsnipjolsiphur: wins is similar to a dns server22:06
ActionParsnipjolsiphur: do you mean samba?22:06
jolsiphurI believe so.22:06
kristenbbbprompt: using F8 when the computer starts, I can choose which device to boot from. I chose the ssd (/dev/sdb) and it produces the same error message.22:07

meoblast001bprompt: complains about those radeon intel issues when i run check22:13
kristenbbbprompt: your instructions are not that hard to follow, I applied them one by one. The only thing I changed from your pastie was the UBUNTUPARTITIONHERE which I replaced by /dev/sdb2, the sudo mount -o bind /sys /mnt/sys, and the grub-install /dev/sdb.22:13

kristenbbok so let's try that, it will only be the 6th22:18

bpromptkristenbb:   ok22:19
kristenbbbprompt: and once again, let me repeat that during previous installations, I had gpt and efi. I think these stay in between installations because fdisk -l still mentions gpt.22:20

kristenbbthe partition table format in use on your disks normally requires you to create a separate partition for boot loader code. this partition should be marked for use as an 'EFI boot partition' and should be at least 35MB in size.

daftykinsbrainwash: sorry for the toe stepping, i shall stop if you're helping already22:54
daftykinsoops bprompt ^^22:54
daftykinsbrainwash: sorry22:54
brainwashdaftykins: :P22:54
kristenbbdaftykins: i have no idea what you just said, i don't know what efi means. I think i've seen it ever since I tried to install it with full disk encryption. I'd like to remove efi now.22:54
UltimaKRHi I am having a problem with my newly installed Lubuntu.  When I start the Chromium Web Browser and open a page, either immediately, after a few seconds, or upon opening a subsequent page, I will get one of two error messages: "He's dead, Jim!" or "Aw, snap!"  What is causing this problem?22:55
bpromptkristenbb:    do you have any other OSes around, in say "sda"?22:56
kristenbbbprompt: no22:56
mojtabaI used fusedav to mount webdav, but I got this error message: "PROPFIND failed: Could not read status line: Connection reset by peer" Does anybody know what should I do?22:56
kristenbbbprompt: sda is just data, 3 partitions of it.22:56
bpromptkristenbb:    then nevermind the EFI bit, and continue22:56
meoblast001okay, back to the problem i had to leave during22:57
bprompton that note, I gtg :|22:57
kristenbbsda is a disk with 3TB so it required a GPT partioning (all disks over 2TB do, I think, at least for windows). sdb is gpt too, though I don't know why, and i'd like to remove it too if possible, along with that efi thing22:57
meoblast001http://dpaste.com/1195702/ i tried apt-get check after that, and it basically gave everything after the gawk depends line22:57
Ben64kristenbb: where are you trying to install ubuntu, and do you need to keep any data22:58
kristenbbBen64: I'm trying to install ubuntu to sdb, and all I need to keep is sda.22:59
Ben64kristenbb: what size is sdb?22:59
kristenbbBen64: around 250GB. and sda is 3TB23:00
Ben64kristenbb: then cant you just erase everything on sdb and install there easily?23:00
seronisUltimaKR: that (i think) just means the thread in charge of that tab crashed.  memory low or plugin problem on the page you were viewing maybe ?23:02
kristenbbsorry I got disconnected, did I miss anything since I last spoke ?23:02
Ben64kristenbb: then cant you just erase everything on sdb and install there easily?23:02
kristenbbBen64: I really don't get these gpt,mbr, efi things, but no, I think that when you remove everything, these are left there, for whatever reason23:02
UltimaKRseronis: What would you consider low memory in Lubuntu?  It's an old PC that I put this OS on in order to try and get it running again.23:02
Ben64kristenbb: i'm not sure if the ubuntu installer will let you change from gpt to mbr23:03
kristenbbBen64: but that's what I did right now, I removed all the existing partitions and did the install as instructed by various helpers in here.23:03
UltimaKRseronis: Also, what plugins do I need for that browser that don't come in the installation?  This error occurs on just about every page I visit.23:03
seronisUltimaKR: not sure. i only used chromium long enough to get chrome-beta installed23:04
w33dhello! Can anyone tell me how to reset my WLAN controller, it is currently set as wlan7, I want it at wlan023:04
daftykinsw33d: why does the name matter?23:04
w33dit keeps dropping out as a connection via Parallels (VM)23:04
=== milind__ is now known as abyss42
w33dUSB WiFi dongle connected23:04
UltimaKRseronis: What browser do you prefer then?  And yeah the RAM is 256 MB (it is that old), but is that too low considering that this is Lubuntu, not regular ubuntu?23:05
w33dI've got from one Macbook Pro, to another, and 'moved' the VM but having issues with it just dissapearing randomly23:05
=== super is now known as Guest91157
kristenbbso everyone, I installed 13.04 once again as instructed in here, and guess what, I still get: "error. no such partition. grub rescue>"23:06
daftykinsw33d: the interface inside the VM? perhaps the MAC keeps changing23:06
Guest91157hello dina23:07
seronisUltimaKR: i'm new on linux.  xubuntu myself for 3 weeks but I also have 8gb ram and havent had any issues.  I just had one flash crash that gave me the 'dead jim' page23:07
w33dI think that has something to do with it23:07
musicis chromium going to be the new ubuntu default browser?23:07
w33dwhen I moved the VM files, Parallels asked me if I 'copied' or 'moved' the VM because of something to do with Mac address' but I think that related to the bridged network adapter23:07
seronisUltimaKR: the lubuntu sys requirements page implies 256 should be functional and 512 worry free. so you sound like you're in limits23:07
slacko18428utlimakr: Look into the newer slacko version of puppy linux.  Using on an old pentium 3 craptop as we speak.23:08
david_Ultimakr: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/SystemRequirements23:08
k1lmusic: its in the discussion for the next releases. but im not sure if its already the decision23:08
UltimaKRseronis: Ah I understand.  If you couldn't tell these are my first couple of days on Linux.  What method did you use to install the Flash player?  Would you recommend buying another 256 MB stick then to make it 512? (This would cost me $1.50)23:08
UltimaKRdavid_: Yeah I checked that before installing and that's why I picked this version of Linux.23:08
w33dweirdly once it is connected to a network is seems ok, but if I leave it idle it just dissapears completely, still showing as connected in 'devices' list of parallels, but not able to resurrect a connection or even restore 'ifconfig wlan7 up'23:08
seronisUltimaKR:  i -always- max out the ram on any system i own =-)  its the cheapest upgrade you can do23:09
david_right, is it working?23:09
w33dis there a way to clear all previous wlan7 settings back to wlan023:09
UltimaKRslacko18428: How old is that computer? Seems like a good idea.23:09
daftykinskristenbb: i'm tempted to get involved but i also wonder if letting bprompt continue when he's next back might be a better idea23:09
kristenbbdaftykins: i think he's gone so please help if you think you can23:10
Ben64kristenbb: you're probably not creating the gpt partition required for booting. i'd recommend starting the livecd, getting to gparted and changing sdb to mbr then reinstall that way23:10
UltimaKRseronis: My max is most likely 1 GB, but those sticks (or a pair of 512 MBs) are more rare and therefore more expensive so if 512 MB will be enough then I can buy that extremely cheap stick of ebay lol.23:10
seronisUltimaKR: also in xubuntu there is a checkbox for  'restricted-extras' package so it was installed from the go23:10
seronisbut you can install that package yourself with apt-get23:10
kristenbbben64: okay, can you please help me to do that ?23:10
seroniserr is it  'ubuntu-restricted-extras'  ?23:11
Ben64kristenbb: let me know when you've got gparted open23:11
mojtabaI used fusedav to mount webdav, but I got this error message: "PROPFIND failed: Could not read status line: Connection reset by peer" Does anybody know what should I do?23:11
seronisUltimaKR:  well 'maxed' as is convenient then =-)23:11
kristenbbben64: it is open right now, way ahead of you :d23:11
UltimaKRseronis: I see.  I think mine is more barebones than that in order to keep HDD space and system requirements to a minimum so it doesnt have that package you mentioned.23:11
beanUltimaKR, my hand compiled LinuxFromScratch (non ubuntu distro you build yourself) uses 17mb of ram with nothing else running, pretty awesome.23:12
kristenbbBen64: so I guess I should select sdb, and what then ?23:12
seronisUltimaKR: probably.  the times i tried ubuntu/kubuntu in the past i always had to install it myself23:12
Ben64kristenbb: device -> create partition table23:12
kristenbbBen64: ok23:12
kristenbbBen64: then there's a drop down menu, should I select msdos?23:13
Ben64kristenbb: it should have gpt and msdos and maybe some others23:13
Ben64kristenbb: yeah msdos23:13
slacko18428dinosaurs built it from stone.  Think I have 512mb of ram.  Not a big fan of puppy generally but its kicking butt on this old system23:13
kristenbbBen64: okay, so this will replace gpt with mbr, right ?23:13
Ben64kristenbb: yep23:13
kristenbbBen64: what about efi ?23:13
seronisbean: does the self compiling everything really drop the resource requirements THAT much ?23:13
Ben64kristenbb: thats not something that is on a drive, its a motherboard thing23:13
beanseronis, no, but i literally have an ssh daemon, vim, ruby, and zshell.23:14
UltimaKRseronis: Did you pick the YUM, .rpm, or .tar.gz method of installing it? Not sure which is the right one to choose for my system.23:14
beanrather than a bunch of daemons23:14
kristenbbBen64: is efi and uefi the same thing ?23:14
seronisUltimaKR: apt-get23:14
seronisUltimaKR:  no manual download23:14
Ben64kristenbb: pretty much23:14
seronisUltimaKR: and ubuntu would use  *.deb files if you are downloading from a webpage =-)23:14
UltimaKRseronis: So I can just put that in the "Run" box and it will help me?23:15
seronisUltimaKR: do you know how to open a terminal ?23:15
daftykinskristenbb: out of interest what kind of computer is this? got a make/model?23:15
UltimaKRseronis: Actually I am just reading the options Adobe gives me on this page http://get2.adobe.com/flashplayer/otherversions/23:15
kristenbbBen64: the way the ubuntu installer talked about it, it said that efi was an option during installation, and that it allowed to set up snapshots and such, so during one of the installations I tried it. If it's a motherrboard option, why would the installer be able to temper with it ?23:15
UltimaKRseronis: Not really I am literally brand new (a few hours with this maybe?)23:15
Ben64kristenbb: you must have it on your motherboard23:15
kristenbbdaftykins: it's a home made computer, I bought the pieces and assembled it together.23:15
daftykinsah ok23:16
seronisUltimaKR: in your app menu there should be something you can run labeled as a 'Terminal' or  'Console'23:16
seronisits the DOS looking window23:16
kristenbbBen64: ok, so now, I should just restart and reinstall, right ?23:16
seronison xubuntu you can use the key shortcut  WIN+T  to launch a terminal window23:16
Ben64kristenbb: yep23:17
kristenbbBen64: ok, let's go for the 7th installation in 5 days, and counting.23:17
Ben64kristenbb: maybe disable efi in the bios23:17
seroniskristenbb: lucky number?  (good luck)23:17
Ben64kristenbb: it can cause problems23:17
seronisUltimaKR: did you get a terminal window open ?23:17
kristenbbBen64: that will be for the 8th ;)23:18
UltimaKRseronis: Looking for it now...not sure what app menu you are talking about.23:18
mojtabadoes anybody know how can I scroll when in ubuntu server?23:18
kristenbbBen64: no actually it's just that I have no idea how to do that.23:18
kristenbbBen64: so should I use manual or automatic installation ?23:18
seronisUltimaKR: not sure what app menu Lubuntu even has.  but whatever its version of the 'start menu' is23:18
kingtut1kristenbb: sure23:18
kristenbbkingtut1: come again?23:19
kingtut1Serano: okay23:19

seronispress     win+T23:19
seronisdoes that open a console window ?23:19
UltimaKRseronis: Do you mean the windows key with the microsoft symbol?23:20
Ben64kristenbb: i would just do automatic on sdb at this point, the whole drive is wiped23:20
UltimaKRseronis: If so then nothing happens.23:20

daftykinskristenbb: are you installing beside Windows 7 or some such?23:34
kristenbbdaftykins: no, just ubuntu23:34
daftykinskristenbb: i'd check your BIOS for options to enable legacy boot and disable EFI - what brand motherboard did you get? you could just boot from the smaller drive and have the 3TB as storage alone23:35
daftykinsno need for EFI that way23:35
kristenbbdaftykins: how to do that ?23:36

seronis'tamper' something.  should be easy to google for23:41
kristenbbben64: well how would I know, you asked me to go with the 'auto' mode, so i wasn't asked this question, but in any case, i tried to boot from sda too, and it doesn't work either23:41
Ben64yeah i would disable efi, it seems created to make linux harder to boot23:42
kristenbbBen64: so how to ?23:43
kristenbbthere is a tab called main, ai tweaker, advanced, monitor, boot, tool23:43
kristenbbi went to 'boot'23:43
kristenbbthen there are various options23:43
seronisslacker_nl: stand corrected.  guess there is a tool called 'scanmem' that you should be able to install from apt-get that is similar23:43
kristenbbone of which is pci rom priority23:43
kristenbbcould this be it ?23:43
daftykinskristenbb: something legacy/EFI related23:43
daftykinsis what you want23:44
Ben64seronis: he's gone and you're pinging the wrong person23:44
* seronis facedesks23:44
kristenbbthe dropdown list for this option is: legacy rom, efi compatible rom23:44
kristenbblegacy rom was selected23:44
Ben64thats for RAID23:45
kristenbbwas this the option I was looking for, or should i be looking for something else ?23:45
kristenbbso then there's 'option rom messages'23:45
daftykinssomething else23:45
kristenbband there's two possibilities: keep current, or force bios23:45
kristenbbthere's also setup mode23:46
kristenbbeasy mode, or advanced23:46
daftykinskristenbb: i was really hoping you might've been able to answer the motherboard make+model question so i could try and look up what options it shows you online23:46
