krabadorhisto, i told him to use the alternate00:00
krabadorhisto, but i don't find it in cdimage00:00
histokrabador: 12.04.2 has alternate00:00
histokrabador: http://www.ubuntu.com/download/alternative-downloads00:01
krabadorhisto, if he runs the mini iso, he must configure the lan manually00:02
krabadoror it have dhcp inside?00:02
icerootkrabador: it has dhcp00:03
histokrabador: It will dhcp.00:04
histokrabador: cdimage is all disorganized from what I can see00:04
krabadorsome day ago i look inside the alternates00:04
krabadorand others00:04
varunendrakrabador, iirc, the alternate iso has been removed since 13.0400:05
histoAt least logically from what I see all the arm stuff is where the other variants should be etc..00:05
krabadorvarunendra, oh, yes i looked for lubuntu00:06
krabadorok,in netboot folder, on cdimage, i look mini.iso, if i tell to the user to run it, it wuold run a line command, complete installare, or he must download ubuntu-installerm and run it someway inside mini.iso?00:09
varunendrakrabador, no idea about the mini iso, but if you think the alternate may help, trying the lubuntu one would be a good idea. If it succeeds, you may just install the "ubuntu-desktop" metapackage then.00:11

dreadiscoolHi guys00:22
dreadiscoolI was wondering if someone could help me with a problem that I've been struggling with for the past 3 hours00:22
dreadiscoolI have a directory in /var/www called screenshots00:22
dreadiscoolHowever, I upload files there through a seperate user named 'screenshots'00:23
dreadiscoolNormally, apache has access to everything in /var/www, but I guess since files are being uploaded through a different user, apache no longer has permission to access the file00:23
dreadiscoolHow can I set up the file permission system so that apache has access to all files in /var/www/screenshots/ ?00:23
dreadiscoolI already tried setting the folder file permissions to chmod 0777, but that didn't work00:24
dreadiscoolI also tried adding the user 'screenshot' to the group www-data, but that also didn't fix the problem00:24
marcoceppiI'm getting Segmentation Fault whenever I run `ls -lah` but not with any other command `ls` works fine00:25
dreadiscoolWhat other options are available to me to get this to work?00:26
varunendradreadiscool, I have no experience with apache, but which user the accessing program (apache?) is running as? Try adding that user to the uploading user's group instead.00:30
dreadiscoolI am a complete noob to ubuntu's file permission system00:30
dreadiscoolYou can add users to users in ubuntu?00:31
marcoceppidreadiscool: what's your problem with apache?00:31
dreadiscool[Tue Jul 09 00:59:08 2013] [error] [client <ip here>] (13)Permission denied: file permissions deny server access: /var/www/screenshot/20130708225859585.png00:31
dreadiscoolI have a directory called screenshots in /var/www00:31
dreadiscoolNormally, apache is allowed access in there00:32
varunendradreadiscool, usually new users have their own group. You can check for user "uploader" with - "groups uploader"00:32
dreadiscoolBut, I upload files to there through FTP through a seperate user other than root, and now, apache doesn't have access to the files that are uploaded through this secondary user00:32
marcoceppidreadiscool: can you pastebin `ls -lah /var/ww/screenshot`00:32
dreadiscoolAllright, let me connect to the server again00:33
=== unformat is now known as checoimg
=== _BJFreeman is now known as BJfreeman
marcoceppidreadiscool: so the ownerships is fine, the problem is those screenshots have literally no premissions00:35
dreadiscoolHow would I set it so that apache has access to them then?00:35
dreadiscoolThanks for your help btw, I appreciate it00:35
marcoceppidreadiscool: try running `find /var/www/screenshot -type f -exec chmod 0644 {} \;` that will find all of the "files" in the /var/www/screenshot directory and make them 644 (rw-r--r--)00:36
dreadiscoolWhat about newer files that I upload via the user 'screenshot'?00:36
marcoceppidreadiscool:  What program are you using to upload?00:36
dreadiscoolI have that separate user set up because I'm using Hyperdesktop to upload screenshots00:36
marcoceppiSo, that program isn't setting the permissions properly then. Either configure the program to properly set permissions (if possible) or you can set that command to run as a cron every min. The former would be the preferable way, the latter is a workaround if the software doesn't allow you to. Ultimately it's on the software to properly set permissions00:38
histomarcoceppi: isn't apache creating the files?00:40
histomarcoceppi: also fin /var/www/screenshot -type f -exec chmod 0644 {} +    would probably be faster00:40
CetrianHi all, what's a good way to add NTFS support to Ubuntu so I can read from some of these old Windows Server drives and eventually move my data to a better file system ;)00:40
dreadiscoolI'm using vfsftp or something as my ftp server00:41
sporkeeeCetrian, ubuntu should read them.00:41
dreadiscoolTo upload those files00:41
marcoceppihisto: Not nessisarily, though possible. I've not used the program so I can't say. But based on what dreadiscool said, it looks like the program is 'uploading' them and and via FTP00:41
dreadiscoolHow would I set that up?00:41
varunendranice permissions Cetrian the best way is to leave things as they are. Ubuntu already has support for ntfs.00:41
dreadiscoolYeah, the exact name is vsftpd00:42
dreadiscoolThat's my ftp software, since hyperdesktop doesn't support sftp00:42
dreadiscoolOr just ssh00:42
histodreadiscool: so then vsftpd is setting the file permissions00:42
marcoceppidreadiscool: can you pastebin /etc/vsftpd.conf ?00:42
Cetrianhmm thanks guys - interesting it's not reading my drives then00:43
marcoceppiI vaguely remember having this issue when I configured vsftpd a while back00:43
Cetrianthey were formerly FlexRAID drives so who knows....00:43
marcoceppiCetrian: is it an external drive?00:43
CetrianTrying to decide if I should stick with FlexRAID or go another route now that I'm on Ubuntu.00:43
marcoceppiCetrian: it looks like FlexRAID has linux support, but it's not native. You'll have to install and follow the directions on their site00:44
Cetrianright… these drives are NTFS, but I'm getting an "unable to mount" error from Ubuntu00:44
marcoceppidreadiscool: change local_umask to 002200:45
dreadiscoolDoes vsftpd have an option to set file permissions then?00:45
james41382My whole library is gone.00:45
dreadiscool022 or 0022?00:45
marcoceppidreadiscool: yes, that's what the local_umask option does, histo was correct :)00:45
dreadiscoolBecause it says in the line above it 022 is the most common for ftp00:45
james41382I imported my itunes library off my windows partition into rhythm box, but it didn't get everything so I deleted it to try again.00:45
james41382But now all my music is gone.00:45
marcoceppidreadiscool: either will work. the forward 0 is a bit overkill, it's just clearing any special bits00:45
james41382Does anyone know when you import into rhythmbox does it move or copy the music?00:45
dreadiscoolIt worked!!00:46
dreadiscoolThanks guys!00:46
noideasis it possible to create a software raid in ubuntu 12.04 server with 2 newly installed harddrives00:47
dreadiscool<3 you guys00:47
varunendraCetrian, if there are remnants of raid metadata, it may cause troubles. To remove it - "sudo dmraid -E -r /dev/name_of_your_disk"00:48
james41382and I recently formatted my backup... for i don't know why reason.00:48
james41382now all my music is gone.00:48
james41382i'm so mad!00:48
Cetrianthanks varun - I am not sure I want to do that yet.  FlexRAID uses some weird stuff in Windows… I'm going to try to install Linux FlexRAID and see if it can read the drives00:48
Cetrianbut it's delivered as a .bin - reading how to install that now (noob here)00:49
varunendraCetrian, usually - "./<whatever>.bin" or "sh ./<whatever>.bin" with sudo if required.00:50

blckpythnHas anyone here made a live iso boot from PXE?01:35
varunendrablckpythn, only Slax, not Ubuntu :P01:36
blckpythnvarunendra: is PXELinux the defacto for all linux distributions that don't have their own solution built in?01:37
varunendrablckpythn, it's used often, but I can't say if it's de-facto.01:38
thurstylarkdoes anyone know how to get the Blue Snowball working well with Jack?01:38
blckpythnvarunendra: any recommendations for a first time linux based PXE server?01:39
varunendranope, I didn't use it myself. The slax iso has its own pxe boot option.01:40
blckpythnvarunendra: The live image allowed machines to boot to it?01:42
=== master is now known as Guest62906
varunendrablckpythn, the slax iso - Yes.01:42
blckpythnvarunendra: so... how did your end devices know to boot to your iso?01:43
varunendrablckpythn, some routers/switches do have problems with dhcp though. You may have to turn it off if it is enabled in the router.01:43
varunendrablckpythn, the target device has just to be set to boot from LAN, that's all01:44
blckpythnvarunendra: I see... so your iso was also your only real dhcp server at the time of boot. That makes sense.01:44
varunendraI use it often to recover files from old laptops that can't boot from usb and optical drive is busted.01:44
blckpythnThis is sort of a commercial environment where I have windows servers that I configure PXE and boot image options in dhcp for, so the iso idea didn't make sense at first.01:45
varunendrablckpythn, iirc, the pxe configuration has the option to use existing dhcp. But it's usually better to configure your own, and temporarily turn the one in the router off.01:46
=== comrad is now known as comradzilla
blckpythnSure, which would work fine except when the IP changes because it is a live image, that's the only hiccup I foresee01:47
=== xangua1 is now known as xangua
=== Trel is now known as Trel|errands
varunendrablckpythn, a very crude and probably silly workaround maybe to look into options with clonezilla. It gives the option to change network configuration on each client it is "Restoring" an image on.01:49
blckpythnvarunendra, I have been looking at clonezilla, but configuring the server side of it does feel crude. But it wasn't the client IP I was wondering about, rather the boot to a PXE server whose IP might change because is a live image...01:50
varunendrablckpythn, I don't see a problem with server's IP, there is no configuration to be done on the clients except setting them to boot from LAN. Am I missing a point here?01:52
blckpythnYeah, if you have a third party dhcp server, it has to point to your PXE server for you, pointing to a live image would be the problem01:53
thurstylarkdoes anyone know how to get the Blue Snowball working well with Jack?01:53
varunendrablckpythn, yes that may be a problem in using third party dhcp. But then you can always manually assign/change IP of the server. :)01:55
zimzum_hi, does anyone know how to increase the window border size in Xubuntu/Xfce?01:56
varunendrablckpythn, if all or most of the machines on the network are identical, I find clonezilla to be an ideal solution.01:56
zimzum_it's so small that I have a hard time resizing windows01:56
blckpythnvarunendra, that's the problem, they really aren't, lots of refurbished machines and such....non-profit sector sysadmin here.01:58
XenoModhello all01:58
ChrisF-If I want to make an admin area of my site, should I just make an admincontroller.php and then use a route filter?02:00
varunendrablckpythn, that still shouldn't be a problem unless you have installed any proprietary driver on the source image.02:01
varunendrabut yes, you will need to do some extra work on the clients afterwards blckpythn02:02
blckpythnvarunendra, I tried FOG, which has a lot of great features, but I could never get the non-fixed(see: identical hardware) images to work at all.02:04
varunendrablckpythn, I feel lucky to have never faced that issue then ;)02:05
blckpythnvarunendra, yeah....1200+ machines, divided into 20+ windows domains does not make for consistency...oh how I wish02:06
varunendrablckpythn, that's huge ! :-o02:08

PhySidzeel, I had one 150 gb folder with files. When i installed the system, unwittingly it becomes a swap partition. Can I access the folder and take my stuffs back? Where is it?03:31
Sidzee1well, it's difficult situation03:32
Sidzee1you could recover some files, probably all, we canno't know before testing but stop writing on your pc to stop damages03:33
PhyOk.. How can I start?03:33
PhyI had a look and didn't find anything..03:34
DiamondciteThere is an app known as testdisk, assuming it wasn't activated, swap wise, a liveUSB or liveCD might be able to see the files that used to be there?03:34
DiamondciteBut please don't use the PC with the 150GB in question to look things up03:34
DiamondciteAs it will turn bad real quick if you do03:35
Sidzee1the best thing to do is, download a livecd with test disk  ( you can download it from depot without livecd, directly using your computer but it's not recommanded or using a livecd as Ubuntu Rescue Remix ) so, burn it and start from the cd/dvd and start the recover03:35
PhyBut, I'm on right now..03:35
Sidzee1but you will have a lot of unsorted files and it could a lot a lot a lot of time to sorted, search which files you have very need ... and the test take longtime03:37
Sidzee1( sorry about bad english ... )03:37
varunendraphy, the first (immediate) thing to do is - "sudo swapoff -a"03:37

Phyvarunendra: ok.03:37
varunendraphy let us know when you have done it successfully.03:38
Sidzee1Phy, well yes I think you can but probably need internet access to download the necessary package03:38
PhyI turned the swap off with gparted..03:39
Sidzee1as varunendra say, the first thing to do is stop to write on the disk03:39
DiamondciteYou really made a 150GB SWAP!?/03:39
varunendraphy, do you have an internet connection available?03:39
DiamondciteOr did the swap happen to run through part of it?03:39
PhyI'm connected.03:40
varunendraphy, how much RAM do you have?03:40
Phy5.50 ~ 603:40
varunendranow install testdisk - "sudo apt-get install testdisk"03:41
varunendraphy, whether you use a live cd/usb or the installed system for recovery, do remember to turn off the swap (at least the partition in question) to avoid writing on it.03:42
Phyvarunendra: I'm using the system installed. Can we proceed?03:43
varunendraphy, as long as you don't need to use the swap.03:43

daptordarattlerghs: cos  hosts configuration is mainly  for domain name resolution and direct ip injection on a small network. On larger networks the router or switch handles this so it should be accessible remotely via the ip04:06

varunendraPhy, at the end of the search, you will have the option to write the found partition layout to the disk (if the older one was found).  But I'd recommend to just save your files/folders using the "P" option that appears after deeper search (refer to the step-by-step)04:26

varunendraPhy, keep "sudo photorec" next in the list of your options if this doesn't work. Alternatively you may go for some commercial application if you trust one (although I've personally found testdisk/photorec to be the best).04:31

SuperGauntletIs it possible to undervolt your CPU in ubuntu 12.10?05:12
wheatthinSuperGauntlet, you mean underclock?05:14
SuperGauntletNo, I mean undervolt05:14
Phyvarunendra: Should I change the filesystem type before proceed to backup. It's as swap now. I found it.05:14
wheatthinall cpu clocks and voltages are done via bios, and relayed to kernel05:15
SuperGauntletApparently there was a way to undervolt at one point, but is no longer supported?05:15
holsteinSuperGauntlet: i think you mean underclock... you are talking about the CPU frequency?05:15
SuperGauntletNo, I'm talking about the CPU voltage.05:16
holsteinSuperGauntlet: then, you *are* going to want to look at the bios.. AFAIK, nothing like that has every been in any OS05:16
SuperGauntletThis apparently did05:16
holsteinSuperGauntlet: i havent looked at that, but if its a link saying "control your CPU voltage in linux", ask the creator of the docment about it05:17
varunendraPhy, did you find your files in it?05:17
holsteinSuperGauntlet: (#linux-phc on freenode.net)05:18
SuperGauntletIs dead05:18
holsteinSuperGauntlet: i propose it was never "alive"05:18
Phyvarunendra: I can't. I found the right partition, meantime, doesn't look like what I really wat. I got an error: Wrong structure to backup'05:19
Phyvarunendra: without the list option..05:20
varunendraPhy, you can use the "p" key while the found partition is highlighted - to see if the previously existing files are in it. If not, it's not worth saving.05:21
holsteinSuperGauntlet: you saw http://www.linux-phc.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=211 ?05:21
SuperGauntletI did, that's from 200905:22
Phyvarunendra: Ok. It's searching again..05:22
holsteinSuperGauntlet: i would say thats about how current it is, and it was never in ubuntu or debians repos...05:22
SuperGauntletI'm not particularly interested in decreasing clock speeds because modern CPUs apparently consume less power at idle05:23
SuperGauntletso it's better for it to work quickly and then rush to idle05:23
=== ubuntu is now known as Guest4027
holsteinSuperGauntlet: then, i wouldnt bother with the voltage either, since power consumption seems to be the only valid argument05:23
SuperGauntletlow voltage would imply lower power consumption though05:24

varunendraPhy, if you know correctly what type it was, change it. But I don't think it is a write operation anyway, but not sure.05:38

holsteindont mess *05:42
PhyAnd now, holstein?05:43
holsteinPhy: a disk that size could run for a few hours.. or, overnight.. or a few days.. so, you set up the process, and wait05:44
varunendraholstein, what I've made them do so far - comment out the swap line in fstab, run deep search with testdisk05:44
holsteinvarunendra: i literally just use photorec on the drive05:44
holsteini dont mess with fstab, or anything else... i use a live CD, and use photorec from testdisk05:44
varunendraholstein, I prefer that too. Was hoping that maybe testdisk could recover the previously existing partition.05:45
holsteinusing the partition as swap for any amount of time will overwrite some data05:45
holsteinit wont recover any partition... best case, it'll give you the files, with no names Phy05:45
holsteinPhy: keep in mind, there are companies that would literally charge you hundreds of dollars to do this, and maybe not recover anything05:46
Phyholstein, The software didn't give me the lost files, just the actual directory. It's intact.05:47
holsteintake your time, and get photorec set up correctly, and just let it go, and hope for  the best05:47

More like a sleep mode that "dreams" about a specific thing which in this case would be the server and the internet.05:54
ubottuafidegnum,: 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/RootSudo05:54

iTailsThen go to the addition drivers tab and select one of the drivers from the list. Preferably the stable ones.07:08

kdmurrayHi - Not sure if this is the right place to ask this or not. I'm setting up a new file server and the boot drive is a SSD. The system has plenty of RAM (16GB) and I was thinking it would be prudent to remove the swap partition to avoid excessive wear on the SSD. Does anyone have any exprience with this?07:23
ikoniakdmurray: why would it make excessive wear ?07:24
histokdmurray: don't put swap on an ssd07:24
ikoniano issue with swap on the SSD07:25
histokdmurray: Or you can reduce the use of swap since you have so much ram by lowering swappiness07:25
=== tbn is now known as Guest68003
histoikonia: excessive writes07:25
kdmurray@histo could a system like this go without the swap altogether/07:25
ikoniait shouldn't though07:25
ikoniahence why I'm asking why you think it would write a lot07:25
ikoniakdmurray: why do you think it will swap a lot ?07:26
histokdmurray: it could however in the event of running out of ram if you don't hvae swap your system would hang07:26
kdmurrayThe system will use the swap partition even before it becomes memory limited if there are pages of memory which are underutilized.07:26
ikoniakdmurray: yes, because they are not needed so it swaps them out to disk07:26
ikoniakdmurray: that is not "excessive"07:26
ikoniathat is a very small ammount07:26
ikoniahence why I'm asking you think it will write a lot and cause wear07:26
histokdmurray: just decrease the swapiness if you are concerned07:27
kdmurrayExcessive was maybe the wrong word. "Unnecessary" would probably be better.07:27
kdmurray@histo how would one go about doing that?07:27
ikoniakdmurray it is nessasary - as those segments are not in use, it's managing your system07:27

llutz_!blacklist | krypto07:47
ubottukrypto: To blacklist a module, edit /etc/modprobe.d/my_blacklist.conf and add « blacklist <modulename> » to the end of that list - To explicitly load modules in a specific order, list them in /etc/initramfs-tools/modules and type « sudo update-initramfs -u »07:47

ilmerovingiohi, is already online a changelog about the 12.04.3 release?07:48
varunendrakrypto, what llutz pointed to above ^ Just use the blacklist.conf file or a new "<something>.conf" file in /etc/blacklist.conf.d directory. On the other hand, there are some embedded drivers like uhci, ehci etc. which need boot parameters to be prevented/modified.07:49
kryptoi tried that once but without updating ramdisk...07:50

abdelstill blank07:53
abdelhelp pls07:53
kryptoif i specify  it as  /bin/false everything is fine.07:54
varunendrakrypto, usually updating initramfs is not necessary if modules are blacklisted correctly. If a blacklisted module is required by another module which is not blacklisted, it'll load anyway.07:54
varunendrakrypto, for example, in my lappy - "parport" is being used by - "parport_pc,ppdev,lp", so unless these are blacklisted too, it would get loaded anyway.07:55
kryptolp depends on parport and parport doesnt have any depends07:55

pvh_sahey, anyone here using chromium? i'm using it on ubuntu 12.10+ (12.10 with some 13.04 upgrades) and after a while it always starts hitting DNS failures, and after a while longer runs out of system resources (resource not available errors). also when I close the browser window processes are still running. anyone else seeing similar?08:00
cfhowlett2pvh_sa, works perfect for my on 12.0408:01
kryptovarunendra: i dont have any other module other than theses 308:01
cfhowlett2pvh_sa, I'd suspect your DNS settings before a browser issue ...08:01
testbottullutz: thanks08:01
llutzsuore: that will be hard to find, start using pgp or other end-to-end encryption08:01
pvh_saI wonder cfhowlett2, what's different. my setup is a laptop that moves around a lot. i've checked DNS - its dnsmasq talking to different servers depending where i'm using the computer08:02
varunendrakrypto, as per your output, it should work if you blacklist both. Can't say what is triggering these even after updating initramfs.08:02
cfhowlett2pvh_sa, say what?  I could be wrong, but shouldn't the default be the google dns server?08:02
abdelany body pls help08:02
pvh_sacfhowlett2, uh, no. split horizon DNS - can't use google DNS as default08:03
ujjainI have 2 servers with seemingly identical set-ups... what can causea user to be able to log in on 1 server, but not on the other with this error: pam_unix(vsftpd:auth): authentication failure;08:03
cfhowlett2pvh_sa, ah.  well then.08:03
pvh_sacfhowlett2, other apps handle the setup quite fine. i'm wondering if chromium is doing something different w.r.t. DNS then08:04
cfhowlett2pvh_sa, I can't offer a fix, as that's beyond my knowledge, but I'd still say it's a DNS issue.  you could test that by using an alternate browser and see if the fail repeasts08:04
pvh_sacfhowlett2, firefox works fine.08:04
cfhowlett2pvh_sa, nicely done.  then yeah, it seems to be chromium specific.  But ... I don't know where that setting is08:05
pvh_saok. hm. so I guess my question is... anyone using chromium who switches between different DNS setups lots?08:05

varunendradsalfran_, if the access-point is not under your control, there is not much you can do with this driver. Disabling N channel on the router/access-point often helps with this driver in such issues, but obviously that is something you can do only with your own routers.09:19

varunendradsalfran_, it is meant for speeds higher than 54 Mbps (upto 300 Mbps), but is still not very well supported by most of the linux drivers. In router it is usually in the list of "Modes" or "Channels" (a/b/g/n) where you can choose a mode without "n" (usually "b/g only")09:24

varunendradsalfran_, a DNS or resolving issue should at most affect browsing, page not loading etc. It should not affect your connectivity to the access point.09:32
sporkeeemeet, This computer does boot a usb it sounds like, not sure really.09:32
varunendradsalfran_, here is a short guide to make the proprietary driver "rt5390sta" work with this chip : http://irrelevantcheetah.com/?tag=rt539b But consider it the last resort since I'm frequently seeing freezing issues with ralink drivers on latest kernels.09:32

nodieand I'm getting crazy :)10:43
Lartzablazemore, Yeah I just ran locale-gen :) Thanks10:43
blazemoreLartza: Don't forget you might have to run "sudo update-locale" after but I'm not 100% sure10:43
nodiecould you refer me to some tutorial or explanation about why ath9k cards have so many problems and how could I fix the 802.11N connection problem?10:43
Lartzablazemore, I am guessing I either have to manually edit /etc/default/locale or update-locale LANG=mylang :)10:43
blazemoreLartza: I believe so, there's a graphical utility in system settings too10:44
Lartzablazemore, Server ;)10:44
blazemorenodie: Which card have you got, and can you connect to 802.11g networks?10:44
Lartzablazemore, That's basically why I had no locales at all, but it didn't cause any problems before now :P10:45
blazemoreLartza: It probably fell back to en_US.utf810:45
Lartzablazemore, there was no en_US.UTF-8, fallback is probably C then10:45

BluesKajHi all11:55
christophorosHello i am using Alienware 17x R3 and it has 2 graphics card 1 intel intergrated and 1 more ATI 2GB . how can i configure them and use the ATI graphic card  instead of the intel one ? :) thanks11:56
adamkchristophoros: The proprietary AMD driver (catalyst/fglrx) supports hybrid graphics on some laptops. Your best bet is to install the driver and see if it works.11:57
theadminchristophoros: If you have the propretiary ATI drivers, just go to the AMD Control Panel and set the card you want to use11:58
theadminchristophoros: Have no idea how to do it with the open ones though11:58
adamkThe open source drivers don't support hybrid graphics yet.11:58
theadminSwitchable graphics are a pain on any system for me :/11:58
christophorosow:( so i shall return to windows if i dont make it :(\11:58
numHello! Does anyone have experience with libtorrent for python?11:59
ikoniathe descreet graphics cards are a failure on the open platforms sadly11:59
theadminchristophoros: Not really a problem, open the extra drivers tool and search for the ATI ones11:59
theadminchristophoros: Either in System Settings -> Additional Drivers or, in 12.10 and up, System Settings -> Software & Updates -> Additional Drivers12:00
adamkThere is a good chance it won't work.  I'd say it's about 50/50.12:00
theadminadamk: The AMD support has seen quite a few improvements over the recent years I would say, although honestly it's still on the starting stage12:01
adamkYes, it has, but it12:01
adamkBut support for hybrid graphics is still very iffy.12:02

elijahI have two repos added for 'nuvolaplayer' one for stable,one for beta. How can I force an install of the beta version?13:36

j_wolf1quick question...I just reset my passwd on my ubuntu box by restarting, dropping to root shell, typing in passwd <username> and then entering in the password twice. It said it saved correctly. per the instructions I was following, I typed sync, then reboot -f. now when I try to log in, I type the password, it drops to a quick shot of the shell, then back to the login screen...it's not letting me log in...anyone know where I went wrong?13:36

occim looking at laptops, some have touchscreens..... does ubuntu have any compatibility problems with toucscreen laptops? or it will work fine and will ubuntu will just ignore touchscreen input13:40
elijahLooks like unstable has something different13:40
nic013@blazemore dude what is p7zip-full?13:40
ctcbI'm a little bit confused right now.13:41
occi know ubuntu dosnt have touchscreen support, i just wondered if maybe touchscreens require some weird driver ubuntu might not have..... but then i guess it all comes down to the graphics card maybe? if that is the middle man that handles everything13:41
SwashBucklaoh gad13:41

cragdorIs this the correct place to talk about a bug? More specific a bug raised in 2006 that still inflicts brand new hardware resulting in an unusable system?13:45
ctcbmarcoceppi: Okay, where do I give my suggestions for Ubuntu 13.10/14.04?13:46
marcoceppictcb: mailing lists13:46
MonkeyDustctcb  1313:46
ctcbLast time I tried mailing lists, I was getting hundreds of Ubuntu Emails per day.13:47
MonkeyDustctcb  13.10 is supported in #ubuntu+113:47

marcoceppictcb: http://www.jorgecastro.org/2013/05/15/brainstorm-does-not-make-sense-in-the-age-of-virtual-uds/13:48
marcoceppictcb: Join the next Virtual UDS and discuss your ideas there, forums, mailing list, irc. Essentially any other venue13:48
MonkeyDustbrainstorm is no more13:49
ctcbPart of me feels that without Brainstorm, Ubuntu seems Closed Source to those who do not have the ability to code for it. I always felt Brainstorm was there for people who weren't coding on it to give their suggestions for what they want to see in a simple way.13:49
simpleuserHello there. My EEEpc is a bit hot (70°) and it's very unconfortable. I don't have this problem on Windows. I already have installed bumblebee to disable my nvidia card. But i don't know what to do next... It seems fans are not working.13:50
OerHeksctcb it was a nice project, true.13:50
marcoceppictcb: to be honest, as it's discussed in the post, the people who could inflict change in the system never really watched brainstorm. Thereby it was a false sense of contribution. If you want to get your ideas in to the system you need to write them yourself or talk about them where the people making the changes live13:51
simpleuserI also have installed jupiter. And i'm under On Demand mode.13:51
marcoceppictcb: this is mailing lists, irc, forums, etc13:51

I just logged into guest for the time being...but this is very perplexing to me13:53
ctcbRight now, I have an idea for Ubuntu Terminal.13:53

marcoceppictcb: if it's for the Terminal application, try talking about it in #ubuntu-desktop, #ubuntu-offtopic, #ubuntu-discuss, #ubuntu-app-devel13:55

blazemoredr_: Can I please have the link?14:15

Vecmarcoceppi: Sure i can get fstab to work through uuid, but it seems incredibly weird and not how it should work. On my previous install that disk was called /dev/sdb5 all day every day14:16

MonkeyDustVec  good, the advice you got here was correct14:21
marcoceppiVec: same thing. It's not indicative of an issue, it's Linux working as expected. Making sure disk devices have a unique dev point. To properly mount the disk in fstab use UUID or labels14:21

blazemoredr_: running "lspci -nn" did not give you that output14:29
cfhowlettlllsondowlll, ??? pretty sure but I'm on xubuntu.  YMMV14:29
marcoceppimhr: when the grub *should* appear, press down arrow once then enter. That should select the second option on the list which is the recovery mode kernel. It's basically trial and error shot in the dark approach but I'm nto sure how to get around grub now showing without having access to grub or sudo without using a live cd14:30
lllsondowlllcfhowlett: I am both on Unity and Cinnamon neither have the option for scroll speed just pointer and double click speed14:30
cfhowlettlllsondowlll, yep.  Mouse/Touchpad/Devices/Pointer Speed14:30
lllsondowlllcfhowlett: Pointer speed is not the same as scroll wheel?14:30
cfhowlettlllsondowlll, I'd be inclined to dispute that as it's such a basic setting option14:30
cfhowlettlllsondowlll, not the same.14:31
lllsondowlllcfhowlett: The scroll wheel setting is what I need. It jumps about.14:31
lllsondowlllcfhowlett: Using scroll wheel jumps the equivlent of using the page up/down buttons14:31
cfhowlettlllsondowlll, silly question; this thing has an actual physical wheel?  Which contact points you clean regularly, right?14:32

Dalek-CaanOh, that's not the same issue then I suppose.14:35
cfhowlettlllsondowlll, I'm going to have to punt on this question, but Dalek's "smooth scrolling" comment suggests a setting to investigate in mouse settings14:35

However, i cant delete files even though the group the user is in has full access.. However, if i give root user which owns the file write access, then the windows user can delete the file. This leads me to believe that SAMBA uses rootuser to delete files or something15:36
blazemorethe 7 in 7xx refers to "Owner of the file can do everything"15:36

mayankmadani have symlinked node to nodejs but still node wont run nodejs15:47
VecMonkeyDust: However it does not make sense to me since the group has full perms and as such the windowsclient-user shoul have full perms to delete, but apparantly the file is "in use" (its not..)15:48
blazemoreVec: I can't think of a file that the user root doesn't have write permissions on.15:48
X200blazemore: I did it, it says that I need some file.BEK to decrypt that volume. Do you know how to create such a file?15:48
VecMonkeyDust: Its extra confusing because its "in use" and not"axx denied"15:48
blazemoreVec: I can't think how you could even achieve that15:48
blazemoreX200: No I don't know. It seems you can use -p flag to give it a recovery password or something15:48
Vecblazemore: I dont understand how it works cus im new to this, but here goes: File x has 000 perms. owner is root. therefore root has 0 axx to file.15:48
blazemoreVec: root is special15:49
blazemoreVec: In a normal situation you'd be right15:49

TheSovI need a little help with logrotate, I have an ubuntu server and i needed to run logrotate on my syslogd, but it only runs correctly the first time, and syslog stops collecting data15:58
MonkeyDustTheSov  there's also #ubuntu-server15:59
TheSovMonkeyDust, thanks16:00
schnuffleTheSov: that's normally due to logrotate moving away the file handle that syslog still uses which leads to syslog not being able to write to it anymore16:00
schnuffleTheSov: rsyslog is used in current deployments and has a working logrotate entry16:02

hazardousjgcampbell300: are you running php in apache, or fpm/16:06
jgcampbell300hazardous, apache216:06

hazardousrestart apache to take effect16:06
jgcampbell300hazardous, ya i have changed in both16:07
cchiversSorry about the vague problem.16:07
blazemorejgcampbell300: You probably edited the wrong php.ini. See php_info() (or php -i for the cli interpreter) which one is used. For example on ubuntu (and probably other linux distributions) its /etc/php5/cli/php.ini for the cli-interpreter, /etc/php5/apache/php.ini/ for the one used by Apaches mod_php and /etc/php5/cgi/php.ini used by php5-cgi (which is used by nginx).16:07
hazardouscgi is still a thing?16:07
hazardousi thought everyone just used php5-fpm16:07

holsteinNero_: a suggestion i am making is.. 13.04, since it has a different kernel, might provide support for you hardware..16:52
ikoniaTrentH: is that the config file ?16:52
holsteinNero_: i thats why i suggested "live", so you can keep 12.04, and learn from the trial run if support is in a newer kernel version16:52

roastedQuestion - if I install a new mainline kernel, I lose my wireless since broadcom STA is evidently not there. Is there a way I can get the system to somehow autocompile the driver automagically with ANY new kernel I add, even if it's not pushed from Ubuntu?16:58
fwaokdaholstein, i'll try some more stuff thanks16:59

Antisober552Not worked ever since i installed niswrapper to try and fix the freezing issues as i was told that the freezing problem is driver related16:59

roastedikonia: I've been having lockup issues on the 3.8 kernel. In 3.8, the main thing that changed was some vsync changes on intel sandybridge GPUs, which is exactly what I have. My intention is to get off of 3.8 to see if it locks up there.17:00
holsteinAntisober552: feel free and try the live CD, to remove your configuration from the equation.. could be you blacklisted something.. could be literally anything you copy/pasted in17:00
roastedikonia: problem is, I can't swap this wireless chip because this laptop is a Lenovo, and Lenovo stupidly whitelists their wireless cards. Otherwise I'd put in an Intel, upgrade kernels, and call it a day.17:00
ikoniaroasted: so surly just a one off test kernel and wireless build will work17:01
Antisober552I installed the winxp driver for the card that was before having to restart the pc17:01
ikoniaroasted: rather than different builds17:01
roastedikonia: whenever I add the broadcom STA driver on the other kernel, it succeeds, says its active, but I reboot and... nothing.17:01
ikoniaroasted: ok, so just build it for the kernel you want to use17:01
roastedikonia: I'm not entirely sure where to start for that. I'm messing with Fedora now, and learned a bit with akmod vs kmod. I understand akmod auto-compiles itself against any new kernels. That got me wondering if I could get *that* with Ubuntu.17:02
ikoniaroasted: I'd strongly suggest using kmod17:03
roastedikonia: am I correct in understanding that kmod just compiles it against the current kernel I'm using, and won't work if I get a kernel update?17:03
ikoniaroasted: yes, but for your situation, I feel it will work better as your module should be compatible across kernels and if it's not - you want to know, rather than akmod rebuild it and mask it17:04
Antisober552The wifi is working on the live cd17:05
roastedikonia: in regard to kmod, akmod, etc., are there broadcom-specific akmod/kmod packages?17:05

ohnoididitagainkostkon: do you have a problem with it not starting up when you wae up ubuntu? It starts up when I turn on the OS but when I put it to sleep and then wake it up it doesn't work17:45
mxoany commands to first see running processes (and maybe memory usage) and to kill them after by name?17:45
murrayukI've found a few threads on it but none with a solution..17:46
kostkonohnoididitagain, i have it as a startup app too, so it never closes, and it works just fine, every time, and i do suspend my netbook. so everything's fine here17:47
ohnoididitagainhow did you do it? I honestly dont remember how I put it on startup17:47
sporkeeemurrayuk, In 5 years of use and ovet 10,000 posts at the yuntu forums and countless here your the first person I have seen say this, and have never seen the problem personally. ;)17:48

ikoniacompiling android.....17:50
ohnoididitagainkostko: will that command override the old setting or do I have to remove it from startup first and then add it again?17:50
murrayukIt's really annoying and pushing me back towards windows..17:50
kostkonohnoididitagain, you can edit your current startup line17:50
sporkeeemurrayuk, I do use W8 and word 365 to write my grad papers, but linux otherwise, use what works for you in the end.17:51
kostkonohnoididitagain, i have put the .py and the cover image files in the hidden folder .spotify-notify that's why my line is  python /home/username/.spotify-notify/spotify-notify.py -s17:52

vorlketi have two servers and a client: i can ping a server from other server; i can't ping servers from the client, but can ssh into them. what would be the issue?17:54

xorredguys, I am having a problem with an apt-get install php-pear, which returns "broken pipe"17:55
kostkongoddard, that's bad then, but that's the best you could do. i think the settings in flash are buggy so you can only change them online. you can always try in chrome which comes with its own flash that is more up-to-date17:55

isiah_s I have a program called xdelta3, it takes two files operates on them and outputs a result file. I want to send it the results of I/O somethign like cat foo I can not write to a file inbetween. Was looking into the tee command, something like cat foo | xdelta tee foo2 foo_result. Doesnt seem to be working, any ideas? The issue is that the files I am mainpulating are so large that having to rewrite them would involve leaving ram and going into hard drive sp18:44
isiah_sace which is a time penaility I cant afford. So to summarize: I have a command that takes in two files as input I want to send I/O to it instead. The man page didnt have anything on this.18:44
Ihsan_Hi, I managed to install Ubuntu 13.04 on my 16GB SSD drive. I also have another 1TB drive. I chose the "Erase disk and install Ubuntu" and selected only the SSD drive. The installation did nothing with the 1TB HDD. Now I'm booted up, it's very fast and nice! But I only have 16GB :) How can I configure my 1TB HDD to use with my Ubuntu? I mean, for example when I apt-get install something it uses the 1TB HDD?18:44

BlueSquirrelwheatthin, I think I fixed the browser, it runs now19:12
BlueSquirrelwheatthin, vidalia isn't tho19:13

Is this 'easily' doable via only commandline, or should a novice19:16
Veclike me install some lighweight GUI like LXDE and use the VirtualBox GUI while setting up the virtual machine?19:16
varunendrauh, linux (read "android") is smart ! :/19:16

wheatthinBlueSquirrel, privoxy doesn't come with tor browser for linux19:19
titta2how to know how much storage space is available for the guest session?19:20
wheatthinBlueSquirrel, so If that's what you're looking for, you don't need vidalia as a launcher.. uninstall it, and install torsocks, and privoxy19:21
tgunrMaybe a better question is, "How to remotely administer ubuntu server?"19:21
wheatthintgunr, through ssh19:21

BlueSquirrelwheatthin, I have both of them installed tho, I just checked in the synaptic19:21
zipy_its in german tho but all u need is to run the steps19:21
tgunrthats not much of a solution for multiple servers19:21
wheatthinBlueSquirrel, and what do you have your browser setup to use tho?19:22
BlueSquirrelwheatthin, how can I check?19:22
wheatthintgunr, you didn't ask for multiple servers, you asked to remotely administer ubuntu server.19:22
varunendrauminded, if you have an alternate way to connect the phone (via usb?), it should be able to connect in "DUN" or "Modem" mode. If so, Ubuntu will detect it as a modem and a wizard will become available in NM to configure it.19:22
tgunrMaybe a better question is, "How to remotely administer ubuntu servers?"19:22

BlueSquirrelwheatthin, by the way this is what tor says: Jul 09 15:22:47.000 [warn] Your application (using socks5 to port 80) is giving Tor only an IP address. Applications that do DNS resolves themselves may leak information. Consider using Socks4A (e.g. via privoxy or socat) instead.

acron^So, I think this is a general linux question. I am attempted to delete a hidden file using 'sudo rm filename' except it's simply having no effect; the file is never removed. What could this be?20:07
acron^am attempting*20:07
wheatthinacron^, is it telling you permission denied?20:07
acron^No, no error message20:07

wheatthinacron^, try using   sudo rm -rf20:08

wheatthin.fuse_hidden000 isn't just a file, it's a hidden mountpoint20:09
=== me is now known as Guest30592
acron^genii: nope, same time20:09
acron^wheatthin: Ah, what's a mountpoint?20:10
BlueSquirrelwheatthin, so my script use to have a connection with tor that sent a signal "NEWNYM" to tor to change the ip address, I have no idea how to do that now20:10
wheatthinacron^, it's where Fuse tries to mount a partition20:10
wheatthinBlueSquirrel, it'll change randomly every so often20:11
acron^wheatthin: :( sounds bad. I'm just trying to do svn cleanup....20:11
wheatthinacron^, just make sure your have whatever partition you have mounted with fuse  (you can check under 'mount' command'20:13
jayanyway to install Ubuntu with out a CD rom drive in the PC ?20:13
wheatthinto unmount it before the svn cleanup20:13
jayin windows 720:13
wheatthinjay, you can use wubi, although that'll make it dualboot20:14
jayyeah i want it to duel boot20:14
wheatthinjay, or you can use dd, or a number of other utilities to "burn" the iso image to a usb drive20:14
k1l_wubi :(20:14
dllamahi guys,   i'm having a ton of issues installing a ruby gem "RedCloth" on ubuntu 12.04 — in the rails related rooms, i was told that it could be related more to ubunuty than ruby.20:14
KyouReeUs4nfoIs it safe to install kernels manually from http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v3.9-rc8-raring/ for Raring 13.04?20:15
wheatthinKyouReeUs4nfo, you can, but it's not supported20:15
k1l_wubi is not compatible with newer windows and is very hard to support and doesnt offer that speed and feeling of a native install20:15
acron^wheatthin: okay, i see the mount on /dev/sda4 - how do I unmount/remount?20:15
QuestI dont see a software running in processes but when i start that software, it says ts already running, how can i be sure?20:15
icerootKyouReeUs4nfo: you may not get security updates and it is not supported, also ppas are normally not a trusted source like the main repos20:16
wheatthinacron^, just   sudo umount /media/mountpoint or whereever the mount point is located20:16
icerootQuest: maybe there is just a lock-file still alive20:16
Questiceroot,  how can i be sure. the software is truecrypt20:17
acron^if i unmount it though....how will i be able to access the directory??20:17
wheatthinacron^, it's temporary.. it can be remounted, you just want to see if that file goes away when you unmount it20:17
acron^wheatthin: Ok...I trust you20:18
KyouReeUs4nfowheatthin and iceroot, thanks. I would like to know which is current supported version from main repos. I am running 3.8.0-25.20:18

sarkie_hi all, I have been getting an error message on start up, "Could not apply the stored configuration for monitors" I have therefore created an xrandr script to run at start up, but I think its wrong, since it "works" but all my games act odd. Since I am running two screens, full screen either spans both my monitors or a 1/3 of one depending on the game. Any help would be appreciated. I am running an ATI 4850 with xorg edgers. (same happened without edge21:47
sarkie_st thought it might help) http://pastebin.com/UhtQLctN21:47
eroeurbanoholstein: it doesn't show up in nautilus; the device seems to work fine (but the troubles started a few days ago: when it was connected to my laptop it suddenly rebooted and all the content was gone)21:47
gms__varunendra: I didn't get it. Using an older generic means no regular updates?21:47
holsteineroeurbano: that would be not "fine"..21:48
varunendragms__, updates tend to replace packages with latest versions, while the latest in your case is not the greatest. That's why we need to hold (only) that one back.21:48
eroeurbanoholstein: I know.. but now it works fine.. I think the USB port of the computer I had it connected is defective (a lot of devices don't work there)21:48
eroeurbanocan I post the output of fdisk?21:49

eroeurbanothanks MonkeyDust21:49
holsteineroeurbano: ? then dont use it. that does sound plausible21:49
gms__varunendra: oh I see. That's a clear explanation. Alright, so I need to check out apt_preferences right21:49
KyouReeUs4nfojacta: are you configuring transmission-daemon for a remote use?21:49

FranklinWhich device manager is similar to gnome-device-manager and works under ubuntu 13.04 ?22:38
ubottufsck is the FileSystem ChecKer, which runs automatically when you boot if you didn't shutdown cleanly. Type "man fsck" for information on running it manually. The command "sudo touch /forcefsck && sudo shutdown -r now" will force a reboot and a filesystem check; "sudo touch /fastboot" will skip a filesystem check at next reboot22:39
cortexmanvarunendra, those instructions didn't work without the manual compile22:39

ikoniajjavaholic: or did something happen to stop it working22:43
jjavaholicI would like to say it happened with 13.04 but I suspect it happened once I had added all the ppa and added some more.22:44
varunendracortexman, you can run custom commands at startup by adding them in "etc/rc.local" file. But that is not recommended when more elegant methods like "/etc/module" are available.22:44
cortexmanvarunendra: /etc/modules (one module name per line only) and /etc/modules.conf and /etc/modprobe.conf (with the syntax `modprobe modname`, one per line) and /etc/modprobe.d/alsa_dummy (modprobe modname)22:45

k1l_cardplayer: or see this answers. but i didnt test them so have a read first what suits best:http://askubuntu.com/questions/206558/how-to-remove-the-amd-testing-use-only-watermark23:12
cardplayerok not testing only water mark but i am trying the first fix... then maybe it will fix my hdmi problem too... if not ill be back23:12
ubottuUbuntu 8.04 LTS (Hardy Heron) was the eighth release of Ubuntu. Desktop support ended on May 12 2011, Server support ended on May 9th 2013. See http://ubottu.com/y/hardy for more details.23:13
evilbugsporkeee: 12.04 support hasn't ended and i've been having the same issue with it.23:14
ctcb Using a terminal, I've created  a folder in my Home called Dev, and one inside it called Android. I copied it in using the cp command and used the tar command to extract it, but when I type "cd android-sdk-linux", it comes up with "bash: cd: android-sdk-linux/: Permission denied" - Then, typing "sudo cd android-sdk-linux" comes up with "sudo: cd: command not found"23:14
k1l_evilbug: 8.04 is ou t of support. so try again with a supported release.23:15
ctcbI'm more convinced this is a problem on Ubuntu's side, than the SDK.23:15
sporkeeeevilbug, 8.04 is end of life not supported, I suspect you are trying this to get something working. As far as a bootable usb I would sum the ISO and try the multisystem loader at pendrive linux23:15
ctcbSince, I can sudo dir it to see what's inside, but cannot sudo cd in to it.23:15
evilbugk1l_: same issue with 12.23:15
OntologicalYeah... mostly because sudo cd into a directory wouldn't do you much good.  You'd immediately lose superuser prives.  You can't cd sudo.  You have to sudo su -23:16
ikonianot sudo su -23:16
ikoniasudo -i23:16
k1l_evilbug: just dd the actual supported iso onto a usb and it will work23:16
OntologicalWhynot ikonia ?23:16
ikoniait can screw up your shell23:16
k1l_Ontological: sudo -i sets the variables right. the other commands dont and that can cause problems23:17
OntologicalOh, haha.  That's what I want... I want it to reload shell/variables/.bashrc23:17
ikoniaOntological: screw up != reload23:17
jribOntological: sudo su - will also do that, but it's just a bit redundant when compared to sudo -i23:17
Ontologicalsudo su - switches to root and reloads .bashrc and /etc/bashrc23:17
OntologicalJust used to those commands :P23:17
ikoniaOntological: please re-read what I said23:17
k1l_Ontological: again: its not the ubuntu way and its not etting all variables right. just use sudo -i on ubuntu23:18
evilbugk1l_: i'll try that.23:18
Ontologicalikonia: What I thought you meant is that you lost your normal user's environment23:18
Ontologicalkk, thanks guys.  I'll recommend that in the future :D23:18
adillianhi, ubuntu 12.04 LTS is showing that my graphics card is bad an starting in terminal mode, even though the graphics card is good. It's in virtualbox. Any ideas what's wrong?23:23
k1l_adillian: install the guest additions23:24
adillianhuh, cheers23:24
k1l_and not the video card drivers from your system. virtualbox is simulating a videocard, and not using your real video card23:24
oinkonis there a good way to test if a specific ppa is installed?23:27
oinkonfrom a shell script?23:27
k1l_oinkon: just see in "/etc/apt/sources.list.d/"23:28
oinkonk1l_: good idea. thanks23:28

Guest5891Hi. I just installed 13.04 and while trying to get my favorite fonts back, I followed the directions here: http://embraceubuntu.com/2007/09/16/installing-vista-fonts-in-ubuntu/ and now my fonts are messed! All the letters overlap. How can i reset what they did?23:35
Guest5891I know it was incredibly stupid... -sigh-... but I should have read the citation at the bottom "updateS"23:35
Guest5891wierd... now it works. nevermind! thanks everyone!23:37
trismGuest5891: if you wanted to remove them later, it looks like it just copied them to ~/.fonts23:38
adillianI can't get the guest additions to work - it says unable to mount (VERR_PDM_MEDIA_LOCKED) and I get the options 'force unmount' or 'cancel'23:40
sporkeeeadillian, Just info but there is a #vbox as well.23:41
adillianah thanks23:42

coldpizza72iIm trying to figure out if I have any data on a hardrive. I thought "df -h" was a good way to check but this doesnt make sence... "/dev/sde1       917G  200M  871G 1%"23:51
coldpizza72iWhy is there only 871G available if I only used 200M of a 917G disk?23:51
mbhatnagcoldpizza72i: sometimes operating systems reserve some of the space23:53
dn5any advices for tootache? :>23:54
coldpizza72imbhatnag: i checked the only directory too "lost and found"... nothing in there23:55
coldpizza72iwhat do they reserve it for23:55
coldpizza72iSo you think im safe to format it?23:56
huttancoldpizza72i: yeah, if thats what u want23:58
sporkeeecoldpizza72i, Sizes of discs on the package are a different measurement than real use.23:58
area51pilotI've installed samba but when I select "Personal File Sharing Preferences" it says the feature cannot be enabled because the required packages are not installed on the system ... cant seem to find what else I need ... ANY IDEAS???23:58
sporkeee1000mib measured 1024 real life23:59
Picicoldpizza72i: Because typically 5% of the disk is reserved for root.  And 5% of 917 - 917 is 87123:59
