ryan_How do i remove GRUB?00:28
Cygnus_X1Hi I've got probably a pretty simple question.00:28
X-Sleepy-Xryan_: Why would you want to remove it?00:28
Cygnus_X1How do i see all my drivers in ubuntu00:28
turpinubunt rules00:28
ryan_X-Sleepy-X: Because I only have ubuntu on my computer00:29
Cygnus_X1like the Ubuntu equivalent to windows Device Manager?00:29
geniiX-Sleepy-X: Please don't call channel operators with !ops unless there is some emergency in the channel which requires intervention.00:29
ryan_I rather it boot into Ubuntu00:29
David-ACygnus_X1: lsmod lists kernel modules, some of which are drivers00:29
turpini have ubuntu for years. But I have the impression that 13.04 is not a very stable release00:29
wilee-nileeCygnus_X1, gparted00:30
X-Sleepy-Xgenii: ok, sorry. i thought criminal activities would count as such...00:31
tsimpsonryan_: grub is used to boot ubuntu, so removing it would leave you with a non-booting system00:31
wilee-nileeCygnus_X1, Can't be run on partitions in use though.00:31
tsimpsonX-Sleepy-X: they were already killed by the bot00:31
ryan_tsimpson: BUT i rather it boot into it than selecting it all the time it's annoying00:32
Cygnus_X1okay, i want to see how its running the audio drivers00:32
X-Sleepy-Xtsimpson: oops, i missed that. :S00:32
tsimpsonryan_: it should boot ubuntu by default00:32
wilee-nileeCygnus_X1, sorry about that I saw disk maanger my bad00:32
ryan_tsimpson: I know right00:32
IdleOneX-Sleepy-X: We do appreciate you looking out though :)00:32
tsimpsonryan_: you can not boot directly into an OS without a boot-loader, grub is a boot-loader00:32
ryan_tsimpson: it's just annoying00:33
Cygnus_X1i just don't know how to find my drivers list00:33
wilee-nileeryan_, You trying to make it inaccessible?00:33
X-Sleepy-Xryan_: which version of ubuntu are you running?00:34
ryan_wilee-nilee: how?00:34
ryan_X-Sleepy-X: 13.0500:34
ryan_X-Sleepy-X: 13.0400:34
wilee-nileeryan_, hard to answer a question formed by a question.00:34
wilee-nileeyour intensions00:34
wilee-nileeintentions was the goal00:35
ryan_wilee-nilee: shh :DD00:35
Cygnus_X1you guys think its a better idea to learn to figure out Ubuntu again on the  regular version compared to Ubuntu Studio?00:35
wilee-nileeryan_, Not sure never needed to shh00:35
tsimpsonryan_: you can set the timeout to 0 in /etc/default/grub00:35
ryan_wilee-nilee: lol:P00:36
ryan_tsimpson: how??00:36
neroCygnus_X1 respond.00:36
wilee-nileetsimpson, Okay if you can still bring up grub with shift a catastrophe if not and need to.00:36
tsimpsonryan_: look at the file, it has a line starting with GRUB_TIMEOUT, should be pretty obvious00:36
ryan_tsimpson: I ain't a bloody programmer now AM I00:37
tsimpsonryan_: did you look?00:37
ryan_tsimpson: wait a min00:37
wilee-nileetsimpson, setting the timeout is only good if you can still get grub.00:37
wilee-nileeto 000:38
tsimpsonwilee-nilee: they said they want it gone, that makes it gone00:38
tsimpsonyou can set it to any value, including 1 for instance00:38
wilee-nileetsimpson, So does a hammer, bad advice.00:38
X-Sleepy-Xshould be gone by default shouldn't it?00:38
tsimpsonwilee-nilee: even without the menu you can still get into it00:38
Cygnus_X1you guys think its a better idea to learn to figure out Ubuntu again on the  regular version compared to Ubuntu Studio? ?00:39
ryan_why isn't it not working00:39
X-Sleepy-Xryan_: after you have made a backup of /etc/default/grub and edited the original you will need to run the command: sudo update-grub00:40
ryan_X-Sleepy-X: I can't term is giving me errors00:41
David-ACygnus_X1: I don't know Ubu Studio, but they are probably very alike under the hood.00:41
wilee-nileeCygnus_X1, We don't do polls here that is a personal thang. ;)00:41
X-Sleepy-Xryan_: what errors is it giving you?00:41
ryan_error on line 600:42
Cygnus_X1ahhh yeah,  i think its more of me not being able to find how to get to see all my drivers easily like in older version it was just in setting s00:42
X-Sleepy-Xryan_: could you paste the output of the following here http://paste.ubuntu.com and give us the link after? command: cat /etc/default/grub00:44
Cygnus_X1know is there a huge difference installing on a ext4 partition compared to ntfs?00:46
Ben64you can't install on ntfs00:46
Cygnus_X1i think you can, it was listed in in the format setup stuff on the install.00:47
Ben64nope, can't00:47
geniintfs can't preserve *nix permissions00:47
Cygnus_X1okay my bad, can i setup a 40gb partition ext4 on a drive with a ntfs partition and have everything be okay?00:48
exportso hi i have a question but its about xchat specifically...where should i ask that?00:48
David-ACygnus_X1: you can have different filesystems on different partition on the same drive, yes00:48
Cygnus_X1okay thanks, my main hdd pooped on me and i dont want to mess up the 1 tb of data i used on a storage drive by mistake.00:49
Ben64export: theres #xchat00:49
Cygnus_X1Now i can do that in gparted and then just install to it?00:49
exportthanks Ben64! :)00:50
David-ACygnus_X1: but the system partition (/) must have unix compatible permissions (and preferably /home and /boot too I would guess, if they are separate)00:50
Ben64Cygnus_X1: yeah, or you can have the installer resize and stuff for you00:50
utusanyou have to shrink ntfs first and then use gparted to format the free space00:50
Cygnus_X1okay thanks00:50
Cygnus_X1okay one more, i still cant figure out where to find all my drivers00:51

Ben64!nomodeset | MidnightNinja01:29
ubottuMidnightNinja: A common kernel (boot)parameter is nomodeset, which is needed for some graphic cards that otherwise boot into a black screen or show corrupted splash screen. See http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1613132 on how to use this parameter01:29

wilee-nilee!uefi | MidnightNinja01:34
ubottuMidnightNinja: UEFI is a specification that defines a software interface between an operating system and platform firmware, it is meant as a replacement for the BIOS. For information on how to set up and install Ubuntu and its derivatives on UEFI machines please read https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UEFI01:34
adamkMidnightNinja: Did it every work correct? Did you install from a live CD?01:34
MidnightNinjaim doing the kernel message thing now01:34
MidnightNinjaand yes, i installed from a live cd, which booted01:35
wilee-nileeMidnightNinja, Take a look here, the thread author is on m-f us daytime concentrating on uefi and is the best help around. http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=214729501:35
MidnightNinjaI see kernel messages scrolling by01:36
wilee-nileeI would not bother with the irc and uefi, I have rarely seen good help, and one user not on who knows anything.01:36
wilee-nileejust my 2 cents. ;)01:36
adamkWe don't even know if this is a uefi problem, though.01:36
wilee-nileeadamk, Doesn't matter, your first question is are you backed up.01:37
adamkClearly it's booting Ubuntu...  Sounds like X isn't starting, which I don't personally see being related to UEFI.01:37
MidnightNinjaI assume since I got it booted and grub installed that uefi was no longer an issue, and the new issue is the nvdia drivers01:37
yebyenhave you tried changing vt's when you reach the screen with the blinking cursor?01:37

yebyenMidnightNinja: do you know how to use the sysrq key?01:41
ProLineI cant plug in at the moment... meaning for the next x number of months01:41
wilee-nileeProLine, My bad you need drivers, however this is ubuntu support you might try ##linux for anything else.01:41
MidnightNinjayebyen: no clue, im new to this method of installation01:42
MidnightNinjaadamk:i cant type it fast enough, the screen goes away quickly01:42
ProLineUbuntu is one of the distros i'm trying to get connected 13.04 to be specific01:42
yebyenMidnightNinja: sysrq key is something that's enabled on a kernel level (or disabled, the most helpful sysrq combo is alt+sysrq+r which I believe to be disabled in newer ubuntu kernels)01:42
wilee-nileeProLine, I found Yumi to be problematic with contig fraggs01:43
adamkMidnightNinja: Very odd..  Do you know how to boot off the live cd, mount the current Ubuntu installation, and pastebin the /var/log/Xorg.0.log file?01:43
yebyenMidnightNinja: that's the unRaw combo, which should steal back the keyboard input from any rogue X11 process that has hijacked it and won't give it back01:43
yebyenMidnightNinja: if it's supported in your kernel01:43
wilee-nileemultisystem is run from linux though not windows01:43
MidnightNinjaadamk:I am unsure of how to mount the current ubuntu installation01:44
wilee-nileeyou can get a contig defragger if it is part of the picture.01:44
yebyenMidnightNinja: the sysrq key is most likely located beneath printscreen key01:44
yebyen(you would press shift+sysrq to use printscreen key)01:44
MidnightNinjayebyen: you are speaking way over my head--I have the sysrq key, but what process does it capture?01:44
yebyenMidnightNinja: you can tell the kernel is not frozen by doing some sysrq combos01:45
MidnightNinjaadamk:I am unsure of how to mount the current ubuntu installation from a live cd--how would i do that?01:45
MidnightNinjahuh, let me try that then01:45
yebyenfor example, alt+sysrq+s will issue a sync command, you should see the hard drive activity light flash briefly while any unprocessed writes are written back to disk01:45
yebyenalt+sysrq+b will dangerously reboot your system immediately (ignoring any writes that haven't been processed yet)01:46
MidnightNinjaI got the ubuntu splash screen to flash now, but still black screen01:46
yebyenalt+sysrq+u is a good one to use between those, Sync...Unmount...reBoot... if all of that reboots your machine then your kernel has not panicked01:47
yebyenthen at least you know that much, you can probably ssh into your machine to perform some diagnosis01:47
MidnightNinjai got an emergency remount from that command01:47
yebyenso your kernel is live and you are just having some display issues01:48
wilee-nileeProLine, Hard to really decern what your preobles are is it drivers for the OS's or the usb not working, Any way if it is the usb and you have access to linux, try this. http://www.pendrivelinux.com/multiboot-create-a-multiboot-usb-from-linux/01:48
yebyendo you by any chance have multiple display ports? a vga, a dvi, maybe another dvi, a displayport?01:49
yebyenit's possible that you're not plugged into the primary one, and your display is active on another screen01:49
MidnightNinjais that possible on a laptop?01:49
yebyenoh much less likely i suppose01:50
yebyenyou could try plugging another screen in and see if it helps01:50
yebyenis it called bumblebee?  (the nvidia/intel hybrid driver thing) do you have that?01:51
MidnightNinjahow would I know if its bumblebee?01:51
MidnightNinjamy computer is an i7 with dual nvdia geforce01:51
yebyeni'm honestly not sure, i don't have one and i'm not sure that's what it's called01:51
MidnightNinjalol okay01:51
yebyengood bet though01:51
MidnightNinjahmm.. is there anyway I can tell the system to just boot a command line? nothing more?01:52
yebyenyou probably need the proprietary drivers; i'm not sure how you'd install them over an ssh session01:52
MidnightNinjaim betting that is it01:52
yebyenyou can always try booting into single user mode01:52
yebyenor rescue mode might be the same thing01:52
MidnightNinjahow would I do that?01:52
adamkMidnightNinja: This never worked after your install from the LiveCD, correct?  So sshd is not going to be configured...01:53
yebyeni think you can do it just editing your grub boot command adding 'single' to the end of the line01:53
yebyenafter the various linux kernel options01:53
yebyenpress 'e' at the boot menu01:53
MidnightNinjaso at the end of the linux line add single?01:54
yebyeni believe so01:54
MidnightNinjashould I also add nomodeset? or should i ignore that?01:54
yebyenit should dump you at a root prompt01:54
ProLinewell, Is the Ubuntu channel not where I should be asking for help connecting to the WAP here? Aren't the drivers part of Ubuntu ?01:54
yebyenyou should probably not need nomodeset but if the issue is with plymouth it may be persistent even without X1101:54
ProLineI mean if thats my problem01:55
MidnightNinjaalright let me try it01:55
yankovgosh, why is it so hard to remap ctrl+c/ctrl+v behavior? any hints?01:56

MidnightNinjaadamk:correct- it never worked after install01:56
yebyenadamk: it doesn't enable sshd after a regular install?  i think you might be right :\01:57
JohnMark66Hello everyone01:57
yebyenpretty sure my laptop did not have sshd enabled until i set it up01:57

JohnMark66Is there anyone in here who can tell me how to install Ubuntu 13.04 on my HP 2000 laptop ? It is running win 8 ....01:58
yebyenMidnightNinja: you may have better luck using a text mode advanced install and adding what you need until it breaks again01:58
ProLineI tried ##Linux and it says  "Cannot send to channel" what now?01:58
yebyenProLine: you must need to be authed with nickserv to have voice in that channel01:59

MidnightNinjayebyen: so there is no way to boot into a normal install?01:59
yebyenMidnightNinja: you can try rescue mode from the boot menu, that should be an option too01:59
yebyenMidnightNinja: i'm surprised that single user mode did not work02:00
MidnightNinjayebyen: I knew it would be a challenge, but I didnt think it would be this bad02:00
yebyenMidnightNinja: the unfortunate thing about having decently new hardware is that it's going to have dodgy support :\02:01
yebyenespecially when it comes to nvidia02:01
MidnightNinjayebeyen: I know that is the case, but I thought it might be different since the y500 has similar hardware and i see that people have gotten it to work02:02

wheatthinwhat was the purpose of doing this?04:33

wheatthinthere's a difference04:37
psusidevslash, you can. what are you trying to do and what are you trying to do it with?04:37
devslashI have Ubuntu on a 60 gb partition. I have 73gb of free space and want to extend sda3 so it will be bigger04:37
KM0201(depending on the amount of data that needs moved though, might be safer to start over.. if it has to move a lot of data to extend the partition... it will take a while)04:37
chadster1975the left side of my keyboard is normal, but the right side has turned into a number pad04:37
icloudnm i fixed it04:37
psusidevslash, and you are using gparted on the ubuntu livecd to do this?04:38
chadster1975u=4 i=5 i=6 o=7 g=1 h=2 j=304:38
KM020160gigs?... how much of that 60gigs do you have in use?... that would seem to be plenty for an OS... or did you screw up putting your /home on its own partition?04:38
psusidevslash, then you should be fine, though yea... 60 gigs should be more than enough04:38
devslashIt's saying there's 46/55gb in use04:39
KM0201what the?04:39
KM0201must have a lot of multimedia or something on there04:39
KM0201do you have /home and / on separate partitions?04:40
wheatthinso if you want, the other parition you have extra, just delete it and resize the one you have in use, it'll "extend"04:40
devslashI have / and /home on the same partition04:40
KM0201my ubuntu partition is 30gigs, and i have a little over 14gigs free.... and that's with a TON of crap (granted, i keep most of my movies, videos, music, etc.. on my server)04:41
KM0201dunno, just seems strange that 60gigs is running out..04:41
devslashWheatthin will that cause Ubuntu to not boot?04:41
wheatthinno.. it shouldn't harm the files at all.04:42
SquabblerKM0201, not if you don't use a server04:42
KM0201Squabbler: well, it depends.04:42
psusidevslash, not if you are just extending the end of the partition into free space following it04:42
SquabblerKM0201, I can burn through 150GB with movies and music easily04:43
wheatthindevslash, but what you were trying to do is create an extended partition, which would have messed things up04:43
KM0201because even w/o my server.. i usually hav emy drive set up... "/ and /something_else"... /something_else is a separate partition, and holds my music, etc.. (that i keep on my laptop)04:43
devslashThere's no hda504:43
wheatthinsame difference04:43
KM0201Squabbler: i see what you're saying04:43
KM0201if i had my whole collection on my laptop... the hard drive wouldn't be near big enough04:43
devslashSo is it safe?04:43
KM0201thats why i have a file server04:43
wheatthinjust delete the sda5, and the resize the orginal one04:44
cydizenSquabbler: any luck with the liveCD & HDMI?04:44
SquabblerKM0201: oh I see what you mean04:44
KM0201i just doon't see how resizing out 12gigs (which seems to be what this guy is trying to do).. is really going to solve this issue... i mean, 12gigs.. thats nothing04:44
KM0201sorry, 15gigs04:44
Squabblercydizen, 1 min left on DL, then going to boot04:44
KM0201reallly building a cheap fileserver/NAS waas the smartest thing i ever done....04:45
wheatthinKM0201, if that's what he has to work with, then there shouldn't be anything not to get04:45
KM0201wheatthin: you're not hearing what i'm saying04:46
KM0201if i read him correctly, he only wants to change the partition size by about 15gigs.04:46
KM020115gigs.. is.. nothing.04:46
wheatthinI am, it's pointless.. we know you have an extra file server, perhaps this person doesn't04:46
KM0201no you're not.04:46
devslashWheatthin this is how gparted shows my drive: sda1 is efi 200mb,sda2 is my mac install 102gb,unallocated 73gb,sda3 is 55gb, and sda4 is my swap 2gb. I'm going to merge the unallocated with sda304:46
wheatthin15gb is still more than what he has now04:46
wheatthinthat's the point04:46
KM0201i was using why i had a file server as an example to Squabbler ..04:46
KM0201wheatthin: so how long before that 15gigs is done?... probalby a couple weeks?04:47
KM0201then he's back at square one04:47
wheatthinKM0201, that's his problem.. he'll have to get an external at his own time04:47
wheatthinfor now, that's ^ what he has to workw ith04:47

wheatthinexcept you don't want tod elete sda3, cause that's what you have allocated04:49
wheatthin73 is unallocated, so resize the 55gb to use the 73gb more04:50
wheatthinwhen you create an extended partition, you're actually trying to put more than 4 primary partitions onto a hard disk. ..you want to resize, and vuala04:51
wheatthinso what I'm saying is resize the 55gb partition to use the 73gb unallocated stuff, and it'll work04:52

sawrubhI have downloaded the iso file from the cd images site, now I want to install it from inside Windows 7 (similar to what we used to do with wubi)05:34
Squabbler_cydizen, nothing05:35
sawrubhhow can I do so ?  I've tried to mount the iso and then copying the wubi.exe inside to outside where the iso file is stored and following the steps I used to do earlier, but it starts downloading the torrent for the iso, instead of using the iso stored locally05:35
sawrubhthis is Ubuntu 13.04 64-bit btw05:35
cydizenSquabbler_:  okay when do you lsmod again, can you confirm it's now gone?05:35
Squabbler_cydizen, yes05:36
cydizenSquabbler_: Okay, lets restart X now.  from the command line, run sudo service lightdm restart05:37
wilee-nileesawrubh, So you want the wubi install in other words?05:37
ubottuWubi allows you to install or uninstall Ubuntu 12.04 LTS from within Windows ( version 7 or earlier ) in a simple and safe way. Wubi is INCOMPATIBLE with UEFI, Windows 8 Certified computers, and Windows RAID arrays. https://wiki.ubuntu.com/WubiGuide for more information. File wubi bugs at http://launchpad.net/wubi/+filebug05:38
Jordan_Usawrubh: I highly recommend against using Wubi; It's not even supported in the most recent versions of Ubuntu.05:38
sawrubhJordan_U: so the usual route of creating another partition and installing in it ?05:39
Jordan_Usawrubh: Yes, that is what I would recommend doing.05:39
wilee-nileesawrubh, I would agree with Jordan_U however if a wubi was your only choice, say a work computer here is what you need. https://wiki.ubuntu.com/WubiGuide#How_can_I_use_a_manually_downloaded_ISO.3F05:40

cydizenmake sure that acer module is reloaded.   It was just a test05:44
cydizenSquabbler: silly question - when you plug in the hdmi cable, and you hit the "function" monitor button on the laptop, does it doe anything?05:45
Squabbleryeah it's there, the acer_wmi right?05:45
Squabblernope, the only one that works is the on/off, and it turns this screen off (laptop screen)05:46

cydizenSquabbler: oh?05:47
Squabblercydizen: yeah no pointer anymore05:48
Random832Starthunder: why do you care about display sleep?05:49
StarthunderBecause I'm about to watch a movie on /this/ computer, and open my IRC on that one.05:49
Random832are you playing a movie? this should be something the movie player can take care of05:49

Squabblercydizen, okay appreciate your time and help!05:50
Random832i'm confused - you're worried about the display sleeping on the one you're watching the movie on, or the one you're IRCing on?05:50
Random832and if you're05:50
SquabblerI'll let you know if I figure it out05:50
Random832and if the latter, if you're IRCing, aren't you typing?05:50
cydizenYea, like I said wish we could have knocked that one out.  Ciao!   Squabbler:  yes please do!05:51

Random832if there's not inactivity, then why are you worried about display sleep05:52
Random832I'm confused.05:52
StarthunderBecause there IS inactivity RIGHT NOW05:52
Random832because you're not using it for anything right now05:52
Random832so why do you need the display to be on?05:53

MonkeyDusttritech  no    ls|tee blah     <-- it creates a file called 'blah'06:05

ltrottierso full FDE doesn't work, and neither does HDE, apparently06:08
ripthejackerwilee-nilee: But it's not working in Ubuntu 12.01. It mount only sd card and not external06:08
ltrottierbecause using id_rsa.pub etc. can't apparently decrypt the folder06:08
geniitritech: If the filename1 is some executable file of which you want the output of it when being run to go to filename2 then it is some other matter06:08

Siebjeewilee-nilee, i know what apt-get does, however, its running once in a while on my pc. Whithout me having configured that i want to update automatically...13:16
lmatMonkeyDust: the script does the chmod. The command I typed for you is from install-depot-multisystem.sh . You didn't do the chmod, it did.13:16
lmatMonkeyDust: I'm guessing your /media directory has  rwxrwxrwx ?13:16
MonkeyDustlmat  ok, so now you can create a live usb stick?13:17

lmatMonkeyDust: install-depot-multisystem  makes me feel icky.13:18
MonkeyDustlmat  type sh install-dep [tab]13:18
Siebjeewilee-nilee, Thats what i figured as well. Could it be that a script is executing it ? For example: I have puppet managing this pc as well, and i configured puppet to have the ssh daemon to be always up-to-date13:18
MonkeyDustit then installs like any other program, nothing to feel icky about13:19
Layke__blazemore: Just so I have more to research (I'm having to use lynx in temrinal atm)... What should I be searching for? Problems with startx not starting?13:19
Layke__I don't really know what startx is, I guess that's the GUI? So I shouldbe Googling for that?13:19
wilee-nileeSiebjee, I have no idea what puppet is. The key here is details.13:19
blazemoreLayke__: Look for how to reinstall nvidia graphics drivers13:19
blazemoreSiebjee: Puppet will use apt-get to keep sshd upt-o-date13:20
MonkeyDustLayke__  X is the GUI, so it's start X13:20
blazemoreLayke__: "startx" is a command which starts the X server; on Ubuntu it will dump you at your default desktop if you're already logged in13:20
Layke__Okay thanks. Yeah, so the startx error looks to be nvidia related.. since it says.. NVIDIA: Could not open device file /dev/nvidia0 (Input/Output error)_13:21

wilee-nileegribouille, I realize that, I suspect it will load the seagate iso depends on any voodoo they have done, there are linux distros that use specific loaders, so a little investigation is needed on occasion.13:58

Ch4rAssHi, I can't boot to live cd of ubuntu 13.04 from my sd card located at /dev/mmcblk0. It throws following error during installation: “unable to find a medium containing a live file system”. Any way to say installer to boot from /dev/mmcblk0? I was able to select it on debian wheezy.14:02
VecHow long does the "cleaning up" part of the 13.04 install usually take? Its been ca. 6 minutes now >..< - I'm pretty sure its near instant on my previous installs14:03
Guest2828wilee-nilee, I just ran through software sources all is good, the only missing sources are the repo's for purchased software which I can't get until I attempt to install the purchased software14:03
mirakI want to embed grub2 in a partition but i have an error. " warn: Embedding is not possible.  GRUB can only be installed in this setup by using blocklists."14:04
mirakwhy is that ??14:04
wilee-nileeGuest2828, You might ask on #ubuntu-steam14:05
wilee-nileemirak, This raid or something other than a msdos partitioning14:06
mirakwilee-nilee: ok, I though it wouldn't mater14:07
mirakwilee-nilee: I can do loadconfig file i believe, I did that with LVM14:07
Guest2828wilee-nilee, steam is only one program that I can't have access to there are more than a dozen other purchased software I can't install, steam is the least of the problems the other software I would love to get back, maybe if i log onto like humble bundle and go through the usc install route on they're site might work ganna try that see if does something14:08
mirakalso where updategrub stores on wich harddrive grub will embed to ?14:08

mirakwilee-nilee: just normal gpt.14:10
mirakwilee-nilee: and hybrid mbr.14:10
wilee-nileemirak, This uefi?14:11
mirakwilee-nilee: since i want to dual boot, I like to have another small partition with just grub that chainload on other systems. I copied my old system to be a dual boot one, so I believe if i don't change something, the old system will try to put grub in the mbr when it upgrades14:12
mirakwilee-nilee: kind of, it's prepared to be able to boot on uefi when i will update the hardware someday14:12
wilee-nileemirak, normally a update-grub does not insert it, however I have not messed with what you have.14:12
mirakwilee-nilee: ok you mean it must always be manual with grub-install or with the installer14:13
Guest2828wilee-nilee, ok the humble bundle route didn't work either I log onto ubuntu one site and click the usc install , and a window comes up asking what app to use for this link lol, must be broke14:13

wheatthinArchguy, to begin with, you can try lsmod | grep b4314:40
wilee-nileeArchguy, I assume you have seen the broadcom wiki, not sure if it has more info that would help.14:41
Archguywheatthin: http://pastie.org/812136614:41
wheatthinArchguy, and if it's loaded, then you ifconfig wlan014:41
Archguywilee-nilee: Yeah, I also saw the wiki about bcm43xx and the note about  unsupported devices ("If your wifi card/chipset and/or various modes are not supported by the STA driver or the open source kernel drivers, then you will need to go for ndiswrapper - this will allow you to use the Windows closed source drivers to activate your wifi card.").

ArchguyBluesKaj: And the second just gives: wlan0     Interface doesn't support scanning.14:49
ezra-sArchguy, if you can get the device up and running it could be related to the kernel support for it, ubuntu is not as up to date in kernel version as arch is. (forgive me If I missed parts of your convo, I just entered)14:49

varunendrasamy, that speed should be natively supported by any BIOS currently alive. Just put it under load and check the speed in System Monitor. (load like compressing with 7z)15:20

sporkeeeReliant, Have you installed cinnamon now and the apps are not working?15:32
lmatMy X server (compiz) is running quite slowly today. I think it was fine Friday, but now, when I move a window across the screen, for instance, it looks like the framerate is very low.15:32
Reliantyes. It's kdevelop that's having problems15:32
wheatthinwhat was your question again?15:32
ReliantI was switching from Ubuntu to Mint, and it didn't work in Mint. I installed Ubuntu 13.04 and it doesn't work in cinnamon here either. In my 12.04 I had changed desktop environments, and I want to be sure that it was cinnamon I had switched to, or if it was a different once15:33
varunendraArchguy, looks good in the report. Please explain the current problem again (I was stuck in CPU issue ;))15:33
sporkeeeReliant, kdevlop appears to be part of kde, not sure if it is attached to cinnamon, not sure the voodoo that mint be doing.15:33

Archguyvarunendra: one sec, brb15:34
Reliantsporkeee: yes. That's why I want to find the config file that stores what desktop environment I was using15:34
lmatSo the fps on glxgears was around 1000...that's really slow, right?15:34
wheatthinlmat, depends on your graphics card15:35

Archguyvarunendra: alright back, yes. Well I try and authentificate to my wireless network and it just jams (I know 100% sure that I have the write password) and when I close the network manager I get "(4) Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken."15:46
idletaskAnd I can't seem to do it at all15:47
idletaskI have been googling around for two hours, to no avail15:47
idletaskThat is becoming painful :/15:47
Archguyvarunendra: right*15:48
varunendraArchguy, did you try connecting without the ethernet cable plugged in?15:48
Archguyvarunendra: yes15:48
schnufflemirak: how do you define self autonomous. Mean mean everything crashes, you get a hdd with the backups, are you able to get the data out of it?15:48
varunendraArchguy, although I don't see anything related in dmesg, but can you try changing the encryption from TKIP to AES in the router? Much better - pure WPA2-PSK (AES)15:50
Archguyvarunendra: how do I do that?15:50
Archguyvarunendra: I don't have these options in the network manager15:50
varunendraArchguy, encryption settings in the router itself.15:51

thatrandomaussiei'll try again with less words.. do i need codex for downloaded movies to play properly on ubuntu.. i get video no sound15:52
Archguyvarunendra: Don't think I can change, that, just logged in to and indeed it is WPA-TKIP encryption, though I don't know if I can change it :/15:52
mirakschnuffle: yes15:52
Archguyvarunendra: also this really shouldn't be the problem, with Windows XP on this computer I had no problem connecting to this wifi!15:53
varunendraArchguy, see if there is an alternate setting like AES, CCMP15:53
schnufflemirak: I'll check the format of the backup data and give you an answer15:53
holsteinArchguy: the hardware is designed with windows in mind, though.. and provided a windows driver.. it *shouldnt* be a problems, but it would ideally be up to the hardware vendor to make sure its working, as they do in windows15:53
schnufflenetit1:  mail -s “Hello world” you@youremailid.com < /home/calvin/application.log15:54
holsteinArchguy: is that the only driver that supports your device?15:54
schnufflenetit1:  http://www.simplehelp.net/2008/12/01/how-to-send-email-from-the-linux-command-line/15:54
varunendraArchguy, TKIP is problematic anyway, AES is more secure and more advanced. Both windows and linux can handle it, but is not recommended. We are only trying to rule out one possible cause.15:54
Archguyholstein: what do you mean? I believe I am using b4315:54
holstein!broadcom | Archguy im sure you are referring to this, but there might be a few options for you15:54

Archguyvarunendra: Yeah, well I don't think this is the cause since I have lots of linux connected to it15:55
Archguyholstein: yes I know15:55
holsteinArchguy: does it list another option?15:55
Archguyholstein: what do you mean? I am using the network manager, my wifi is listed. No options, just enter the password. I press the button Ion my router and enter the password just like all my other devices and it doesn't accept it and then gives that error message that  showed you.15:56
varunendraholstein, his card (14e4:4320) is only supported by b43, and that is good enough.15:57
Archguyvarunendra: I don't think I needed to install linux-firmware-nonfree, I think this might be causing a problem15:57

vltPici: lftp is great, thank you!15:58
Archguyvarunendra: http://pastebin.ubuntu.com/5855759/15:58

varunendraArchguy, that was okay. The expected files were in place.16:02
Archguyvarunendra: and another problem I realised is that when I try and connect to it when in Ethernet, it says the scan couldn't list it or so me crappy error and then even when I unplug the Ethernet cable it is still not listed until I reboot... This is just frustrating16:03

varunendraArchguy, oh forgot it, NM's default behaviour is to give cable connection priority when is available. It may not connect to wifi when cable is plugged in.16:08
Archguyvarunendra: yes, but it also gave me a scan error and now the wifi networks aren't listed. Even if I pull the Ethernet cable out, they won't be. Until I reboot.16:08
varunendraArchguy, if you plug out the cable, you may have to wait a while (less than a minute though) before wifi is initiated.16:09

sebrockI have a VPN connection that works, ie it is up. If I add a route to one specific IP I am able to ping it. If I remove that route and instead force a ping to use the VPN interface the ping is sent away but nothing is replied. So somewhere it gets stuck I guess. Can anyone help me setting this up?17:21
varunendrasuperdo, try an "sudo apt-get update" and "sudo apt-get dist-upgrade" while you are connected via cable. If it still doesn't seem to work (the native brcmsmac driver), then try this alternative : http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2140640&p=12629619#post1262961917:21
superdovarunendra, my biggest problem I dont have cable17:22
varunendrasuperdo, try - "sudo modprobe -rfv brcmsmac" ... then .. "sudo modprobe -v brcmsmac". Make sure you haven't tried to install the proprietary driver, it most probably won't work.17:23

namidarkOerHeks: I need to build a deb - not rvm or rbenv :) thanks though17:38
ezra-sripthejacker, problem with manually installed drivers is every time the kernel or some sensible lib is updated it may overwrite some of what the ati manual driver install installed17:39
ezra-ssometimes the DKMS kernel module is not correctly configured either17:39
ripthejackerezra-s: yes I have to manually install the driver every time there's a kernel update17:39

OerHeksnamidark, it is not packaged yet, build it yourself17:41
ezra-stry to find out the real cause17:41
ripthejackerezra-s: it's loggin out right after the crash17:41

ubottulayke_: Ubuntu 11.10 and higher use GNOME 3 with the !unity shell by default.  To use GNOME Shell instead, from 12.10 an up install the "ubuntu-gnome-desktop" package. From 11.04 to 12.04, install the "gnome-shell" package and investigate "gnome-tweak-tool".  For GNOME Fallback mode, which is similar to GNOME 2, install "gnome-panel". Both packages will place entries in the Sessions dropdown. Using Natty? See !classic19:10

ripthejackerI managed to install the open source driver19:24

ripthejackerI'm getting this error: You are missing the following 32-bit libraries, and Steam may not run:19:26
Kitt3nripthejacker, are you using an AMD graphics card?19:26
ripthejackerKitt3n: yes19:26
Kitt3nripthejacker, "sudo apt-get install ia32-libs" and use the driver from AMD, the open source driver will crash Steam over and over.19:26
Estrobedaabout sudo commands etc is there any list of those commands with good explaination?19:27
Kitt3nEstrobeda, sudo runs something as root19:27
ubottusudo is a command to run command-line programs with superuser privileges ("root") (also see !cli). Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo for more information. For graphical applications see !gksu (GNOME, Xfce), or !kdesudo (KDE). If you're unable to execute commands with sudo see: http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/fixsudo19:28
Estrobedaok thx19:28
ripthejackerKitt3n: man I'm getting different opinions all the time. I've been using drivers from amd all these days and all were suggesting to use open source one.Now that i've managed to install the open source , I have to install amd drivers19:29
OerHeksripthejacker, best advise comes from #ubuntu-steam19:30
Kitt3nripthejacker, Steam is the only application I know of that gets segmentation errors from the open source drivers, it might change soon though.19:30
fswoesI want a real big partition. 18tb to be exact. I want this partition to be full of ext4 goodness. resize2fs currently is limited to a measly 16tb. "resize2fs: New size too large to be expressed in 32 bits"19:30
ripthejackerbut the error i'm getting is something else I suppose19:31
ripthejackerYou are missing the following 32-bit libraries, and Steam may not run: libGL.so.119:31
ripthejackerThis is the error I'm getting19:31
Kitt3nripthejacker, open a terminal and type "sudo apt-get install ia32-libs"19:31
Kitt3nThat will turn your operating system to multiarch, and Steam will be able to launch19:32

shwaiilQ: Ubuntu 12.04 Server does it have a firewall by default ? If true, it's allowing all connections right ? I'm learning Ruby, so I installed Sinatra. Trying to run a hello world example in port 4567 (default port), but the connection is being refused. How to troubleshoot this ? Thanks for looking!22:16
DGMurdockIIIprasselpikachusecond, some time later after having my laptop laying around switched on, it suddenly denies any access and "sudo start pulseaudio" still does something but isnt coming to an end22:16

varunendrafisherman, flyman  it is the limitation of fat32 file system. Changes are saved in "casper-rw" file, and No file can be larger than 4GB in a fat/32 filesystem.22:19
flymanvarunendra no way to change this then?22:20
varunendraflyman, if you want more than 4GB persistence, you will have to create a separate (ext3) partition of the size you want, then label that partition as "casper-rw" and delete the file "casper-rw" in the live partition.22:20
varunendraflyman, read above :)22:20
flymani see22:20
varunendranp :)22:21
flymankind of limits what you can do with a ubuntu persistan flash22:21
varunendraflyman, except doing updates, pretty much everything that is within that limit. But it slowly gets full, so not recommended for long term usage.22:22
flymanyeah, cannot install much22:22
varunendraflyman, you can have a 7 GB casper-rw partition if you wish though ;)22:23
flymanthere ought to be a script that does this for youi22:23
varunendraflyman, there may be one, but I don't know of any. But it's easy enough (create partition > rename it > delete the file)22:24
prasselpikachuanyone knows a solution about that pulseaudio thing?22:25
netlarI was wondering how to fix not being able to add bookmarks to nautilus?22:30
netlarI am on Ubuntu 13.04\22:30
histoflyman: if you use startup disk creator it takes care of all of that for you.22:30
histoflyman: just drag a slider for the size of the peristent storage amount.22:30
netlarIt is a fresh install22:30
histonetlar: what happens when you add one?22:31
netlarIt lets me add it from the options menu, but it does not show up anywhere22:31
histonetlar: Do you have the bar displayed along the left side?22:32
histonetlar: within nautilus that is22:32
netlarhisto: Yes that is there22:32
histonetlar: What about in the manage book marks dialog does it show you bookmark there?22:33
amerHi guys. I have asus U500VZ. I installed ubuntu 13.04. some of the function keys are not working (keyboard backlit + wirless). I installed asus-dkm module but still not working. any help ? thanks22:33
histonetlar: and how are you creating the bookmark?22:33
netlarhisto: It is not there either22:33
histonetlar: then it didn't get created22:33
netlarAnd it does not have a plus button there, just a minus button22:33

ambush276hey guys i was wondering if there is something that exists for my current dilema22:37
ambush276i have a program that i want to basically fork every time it is called.22:38
t4nk34245Dumb question: is there a way to start a program from the terminal, but still be able to use the terminal afterwards?  e.g. I want to open a file with gedit or geany so I use geany lv.cpp, but the terminal can't be used until I've closed the program.22:38
flymangparted perhaps?22:38
Slartt4nk34245: end the command with   &22:38
ulkesht4nk34245: add an & after22:38
Slartt4nk34245: something like    gedit &   will give you a terminal prompt back and still run gedit22:38
ulkesht4nk34245: you can also, if the program is running, hit CTRL+z and then type bg<ENTER>22:39
doomlordt4nk34245,  areyou using gedit for coding22:39
ambush276so basically each user will go to my site and every time they start a new session over 443, i want to fork this program so that 443 will be a listener and basically have multiple instances of the same process listening on 443. The issue is that this process is not really "forkable" Hence, i was wondering is there some way i can have something listen on 443, which when "hit" will basically spawn off another instance of the applicati22:39
netlarhisto: http://imagebin.org/26380922:39
ambush276this applicatoin goes with this process?22:39
t4nk34245@doomlord no, it was just an example.22:39
Slartt4nk34245: there are lots of commands like this.. see "man bash" for other similar stuff22:39
ambush276so basically like a forking program22:39

schultzahow do i use /lib/lsb/init-functions to log a program/script's output to another file (/var/log/program.log rather than /var/log/messages|user.log)?22:40
Slartambush276: I'm not sure if you can have multiple processes listening to the same socket..22:40
histonetlar: No there's no plus sign there.  You up at the top bar you can add bookmarks under the Bookmarks dialog.  Or you can press Ctrl+D  to create a bookmark. Ctrl+B will bring up that manage bookmarks dialog you are looking at22:40
Slartambush276: but I wouldn't rate myself very high when it comes to network programming so you might want to get a second oppinion on that22:40
netlarhisto: yes, got that part, but it is not adding bookmarks22:41
ulkeshambush276: I would expect you'd need some sort of master process that listens on port 443 and then spawns sub-processes22:42
ulkeshambush276: similar to how web servers work (well, web-application servers like tomcat)22:42
histonetlar: http://imagebin.org/26381122:42
ulkeshambush276: though tomcat is a bad example since that's just spawning threads, not technically system level processes22:42
netlarhisto: Now that is interesting22:43
netlarI only have the first menu item "Files"22:43
histonetlar: ahh they must have chnaged nautlis.  That was taken on my 12.04 machine22:43
netlarahh ok22:43
ambush276yea but how22:44
ambush276the program i have does not have a fork parameter22:44
netlarhisto: maybe I need to configure nautilus?22:45
ulkeshambush276: i'm saying you would need to find or write a program that will listen on 443 and then when hit calls your program22:45
ulkeshambush276: i don't have any "one-shot" solution, i'm just providing suggestions on what i expect a solution would entail22:45
=== rob is now known as Guest15333
Guest15333Hey got a little issue... how do i change the dock widdget at the bottom of Ubuntu studio 13.0422:46
ulkeshambush276: an example..i'm actually working on something at my work where i have a web service spawn an ffmpeg process for transcoding22:46
ulkeshambush276: the web service is technically a single process...when a request comes in, i then set up (in groovy code) a call to ffmpeg and run it22:46
ulkeshambush276: the web service can handle many requests at the same time, so technically i'm spawning potentially many ffmpeg processes (yeah, lots of resource issues possibly here, but it's a prototype :) )22:47
=== ubuntu is now known as Guest5778
Guest15333any one can help?22:52
histonetlar: doubtfull as far as I know as long as the places sidebar is displayed your bookmarks should show there in the side bar.   Now if you bookmark is a network resource which is unavailable it will not be displayed.22:53
netlarhisto: I think they did change nautilus.  There are some features that were taken away with the latest version of nautilus22:53
histoGuest15333: /join #ubuntustudio22:54
histonetlar: bookmarking is not one of them as far as I am aware. Especially since you can manage your bookmarks22:54
netlarhisto: But it is strange that I only have the "Files" menu on the top menu bar22:55
histonetlar: http://askubuntu.com/questions/293985/what-are-the-new-nautilus-3-6-shortcuts-in-ubuntu-13-0422:57
netlarYes the shortcuts work22:58
histonetlar: they obviously aren't if you add a bookmark and then it's not showing in the bookmarks manager dialog.22:58
netlarhisto: true true22:58
netlarhisto: maybe there is a conflict somewhere22:59
CetrianHi all - installing Ubuntu Server for the first time right now =]23:00
histonetlar: I'm trying to grep for my bookmark to see where exactly nautilus stores that information23:01
netlarhisto: even the menu is not right23:01
CetrianI'm really impressed with the installer so far - very easy to use and effective. no bloat.23:01
netlarhisto: your has "Home folder" first then "Files".  Mine has "Files" first then "Files" again, so strange23:02
=== Troy is now known as Troy^
netlarhisto: maybe I need to reinstall nautilus?23:02

netlarhisto: I think whatever folder you are in with nuatilus is what is displayed on that first item on top of the screen23:04
histonetlar: so if you navigate to some directory like /tmp and press ctrl+d  does tmp then appear in the places menu on the left23:04

nimdAHKvlt: NTFS has hardlinks23:30
nimdAHKbut I want to access data on the NTFS partition as an ext4 file23:30
nimdAHKln or whatever makes links just has to be able to read from the partition23:30
sporkeeenimdAHK, As a ext4 file, what does that mean23:31
bekksNTFS supports hardlinks, bit no symlinks. And if you want to access a datafile on NTFS as ext4, loopback mount it.23:31
sporkeeenimdAHK, Open it.23:31
nimdAHKsporkeee: it opens fine23:31
nimdAHKbut it's a .conf file23:31
nimdAHKso I have to have it represented as an ext4 file23:31
nimdAHKworst case, I'll copy it back and forth with a bash script23:32
sporkeeenimdAHK, ext4 has nothing to do with it.23:32
bekksnimdAHK: Unless the content isnt an ext4 filesystem, there is no point in accessing it "as ext4".23:32
nimdAHKit's not23:32
nimdAHKthat's the point23:32
