zeronezeronecan anybody please point in in the right direction to finding information regarding what my desired network topology would be in my particular situation (wanting to cluster 3 local ubuntu linux servers, using one as the storage device/reverse proxy, likely)01:08

zeronezeronewell i am looking for maybe some further reading or a channel with people experienced in maybe clustering or networking ubuntu servers01:09
trollworkzeronezerone, that's still pretty vague I'm afraid01:09
trollworkessentially it's no more than a nicely worded "How to network in ubuntu"01:10
trollworkIs this a local network in your home?01:10
trollworkif so your topology should be "plug them into your switch"01:10
zeronezeronewell i want wondering things such as desired software for my situation and if cross over wiring is at all neccesary01:10
trollworkonce again depends on what you're doing precisely01:11
zeronezeronewell if you are okay with me elaborating i will do so01:11
zeronezeronei have three machines01:11
nevyncross over wiring should never be nessicary any more.01:11
nevyntrancerviers should be smart enough on even the cheapest network cards to just sort that out for you01:12
trollworkzeronezerone, you have 3 machines01:13
trismMcDeffice: think I figured it out, in your shell: export QT_SELECT=qt4; then rerun cmake with -DWANT_QT4=ON01:13
zeronezeronei would like to use one to do all the storage. and because this is on a NAT i figured that i could have the other two machines load balance requests pulling information such as website data from the central machine01:13
zeronezeroneiscsi vs nfs01:13
zeronezeronein this particular situation, would NFS suffice or is ISCSI just as suitable in this situation01:14
trismMcDeffice: don't know if that will compile any better for you, but it at least seems to force qt4 over qt501:14

KerimHello guys, I got a sony vaio vpcse1e1e/s and I want to install on it but ACPI-features do not seem to work correctly on it (a.k.a. it gets really hot and fans don't kick in), which made it impossible to seriously work with Ubuntu on it. After many months of frustration, I want to ask you whether you guys got an idea perhaps...01:28
t0keubuntivity: Nope, just ubuntu and ubuntu 2d01:28
ubuntivityOK then, follow c^^c^^ notes :)01:28
KerimOh and btw, using acpi -t doesn't work, which is probably related to the overheating problem.01:28

Kerimubuntivity: It's a sony vaio vpcse1e1e/s with Sandy Bridge i501:32

holsteinosirisx11: ppa's are not officially supported02:44
ubottuTo disable a PPA from your sources and revert your packages back to default Ubuntu packages, install ppa-purge and use the command: « sudo ppa-purge ppa:<repository-name>/<subdirectory> » – For more information, see http://www.webupd8.org/2009/12/remove-ppa-repositories-via-command.html02:44

osirisx11well the issue is i am not getting any output from my laptop to HDMI out02:45

osirisx11the open source standard ubuntu monitors applet doesn't detect it, and i can't get the proprietary driver to install02:46
osirisx11okay well holstein, the wiki page for ubuntu says hdmi should work out of the box for my device, zenbook prime02:46

wilee-nileeuniversal, It is as it is stated, I never see anyone using rar, is that okay?05:11

danny4wayWait. The only thing I know is that I need to set up on computer with router05:12

holsteindanny4way: correct.. *is* the pritner connected to the wireless router? yes or no?05:13
holsteindanny4way: is the computer connected to the *same* wireless router? yes or no?05:13

danny4wayYes but not wirelessly05:14
danny4wayOkay. Let me make this clear05:14
holsteindanny4way: is the computer connected to the *same* wireless router? yes or no?05:14

danny4wayBut I still don't have any idea how to set up wireless for my printer.05:16
holsteindanny4way: you would ask HP about that05:16
danny4waydesktop is printing is so well05:16
danny4wayJust that my laptop, I don't know how to connect05:17
danny4wayWhere do I click so I can connect with that printer?05:17
holsteindanny4way: there is a printer wizard in ubuntu... you can use it to try and discover the printer.. assuming they are both connected on the same network05:18
holsteini like to confirm that by pinging the printer..05:18
holsteindanny4way: you click "add a pritner"05:18
MoPacdanny4way: For ubuntu, install HP-LIP. But it doesn't sound like you're having an ubuntu problem -- it sounds more like a problem of finding wireless setup instructions in your HP manual05:18
danny4wayMoPac, yeah. that too05:18
universal_wilee-nilee: I got disconnected...so what do you use if rar is not preferable ?05:19
holsteindanny4way: the windows machine is printing wirelessly, correct?05:19
danny4wayManually with USB05:19
MoPacdanny4way: Have you tried doing a wireless setup by using the settings tools for your printer in the windows HP printer control software?05:19
holsteindanny4way: then, start there.. since you have well documented instructions and support.. actual documented windows support05:20
danny4wayOkay. I will go and check it out.05:20
danny4wayI think I get what you guys are talking about now.05:20

holsteinUltimate4: i would try as another user. if all is well, then the issue is likely in your user's /home06:12
holsteinbruce_: i reference the link i gave, which will say what package to use.. i usually start with the default one in the repos06:12
bruce_holstein: not quite sure what you mean - which link are you talking about?06:13
Ultimate4holstein: I did it. But same problem persists. Other than that, everything works fine including system sound. I can even play videos using vlc and on youtube.06:14

Ultimate4holstein: Last time i installed audacity, pavumeter and pavucontrol packages and rebooted my computer. This problem started after that.06:17
holsteinUltimate4: after also taking upgrades?06:17
holsteinUltimate4: so, you installed *many* other packages06:17
phizes_Hi, I am using https://launchpad.net/~ondrej/+archive/mysql to get MySQL 5.5 for Precise, the problem is that 5.6 is also provided, I have managed to pin most of the packages at 5.5 (notably the ones with 5.5 in the package name) I can't work out how to pin libmysqlclient18 to 5.5 as well, here is my current apt preferences.d config http://paste.ubuntu.com/5957784/ Could any one point me in the right direction?06:17
ubottupinning is an advanced feature that APT can use to prefer particular packages over others. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/PinningHowto06:18
holsteinUltimate4: what would i do? run "sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade".. reboot and test.. then, if its still there, i would start by trying to boot an older kernel06:18
Ultimate4holstein: No. The problem just after installing these three packages. I upgraded ubuntu thinking that the problem may get automatically resolved, but it didn't.06:19
phizes_somsip: Yes, I have followed that, but unfortunately I can't figure out how to pin to a different version, in the same repo, when the package name is the same.06:19
holsteinUltimate4: then, skip to the step about booting an older kernel, friend06:19
phizes_And for the same Ubuntu release06:19
holsteinUltimate4: if you thing those packages caused the issue, remove them (i dont think they did)06:20
Ultimate4holstein: I removed them, but it also didn't helped. Is there a command to just reset every graphical frontend interface configuration?06:21

Ultimate4yes, it didn't06:22
holsteinUltimate4: do you have any PPA's added?06:23
holsteinUltimate4: then, i would try looking at some logs, or elaborating, or go for the fresh install06:25

ActionParsnipquackgyver: it is the native terminal in functionality, you can show and hide it with a shortcut key (F12 by default)09:32
quackgyver trijntje That's a shasme.09:33
quackgyverActionParsnip: I'm using a keyboard where F keys are alt, so that'd be really annoying for me. I think the most logical approach is to show the application bar when applications aren't maximized, and hide it if the user tries to maximize09:34
quackgyverin which case autohide would be an okay solution09:34

blzMuZe, download an ubuntu .iso image and burn it to a cd (or stick it on a usb key.  The ubuntu website has details).  Then, boot from that medium and the graphical installer will walk you through it.  A drunk 3-year-old could do it.09:56
nice_hazeand now It doesn't loads GRUB boot loader09:56
DenBeirennice_haze: always install windows first,.. bunt after09:56

coachie96I'm a Ubuntu beginner and I have a serious problem after the use of an external screen, anybody got time to give some advice?11:32
sina2Hey. One of my friends has made something wrong by typing  typing “chmod  744 /...”. he's not sure about the path. Is it anyway to restore the mount options to default for whole system ?11:33
john87i accidentally did "dpkg --archetecture-add l386" and now it looks for l386 instead of i38611:33
quackgyvercoachie96: Just ask the question instead of asking to ask. Imagine all the people coming here for advice, and having to tell them it's OK to ask before getting to the problem. It would be twice as many messages in the channel. :-)11:33
qualiahi, i just upgraded to 13.04 from 12.10 and my touchpad sensitivity has changed... ideas ?11:33
quackgyverGo for it.11:33
john87and "dpkg --remove-architecture l386" dose not remove it11:34

Lopeanyone here running dropbox?11:34
Lopeis it best to run the dropbox installer or find some repo and let apt manage it?11:34
k1lLope: alot users do, and now?11:34
garthkActionPa1snip: yes. About eight times, now. (I don't know why I keep doing it. It's a bit like the way developers keep pulling up directory listings while thinking, I guess.)11:35
coachie96I just installed ubuntu 12.04 and checked whether I can set up my external screen to it. It worked. However, I couldnt get back to the laptop screen afterwards. So now I'm stuck with two black screens. Can't start my laptop anymore. Well, it starts but doesn't give my anything on the screen, nor does the external one. Im really at a loss here11:35

john87dpkg: warning: cannot remove non-foreign architecture 'l386'11:37
OerHeksjohn87, there  is no architecture l386, so there is nothing installed, proceed with "dpkg --archetecture-add i386"11:37
jribjohn87: 'i' not 'l'11:38
OerHeksjohn87, error: try dpkg --architecture-add l38611:38
john87i am aware that l386 dose not exist, but it added it anyway and now my apt looks for it xD11:38
OerHeksarchetecture is a typo11:38
OerHeksjohn87, no it doesn't. archetecture is not a command/option11:39
quackgyvercoachie96: 1) Where is your computer from? 2) Is there a sticker on it describing the hardware details?11:39

quackgyverAre you from germany?11:40
coachie96I can't even enter the BIOS anymore11:40

john87how do i fix that11:42
coachie96yeah, thats it11:42
jribjohn87: dpkg --remove-architecture l38611:42
jribjohn87: or L386 if you used 'L'.  You keep switching11:43
john87it says i cant remove it11:43
quackgyvercoachie96: Do you know if you have 1005HA or any of the later versions, like 1005HA-B?11:43

coachie96next thing I tried was to reinstall from an external drive, same result, no screen11:44

ActionPa1snipgarthk: its not a bad thing to not have the key, but the package system wil just moan11:48
garthkActionPa1snip: quite. I'm grabbing the package from their front page and installing it manually while I find out what's going on.11:50
ActionPa1snipgarthk: you can still use apt-get as yuo have the PPA added, you will just get a warning which you will need to say OK to11:52
Lopethe nautilus-dropbox is a bit of a con. they tell you its open source and as soon as you get it they tell you you must download their proprietary daemon.11:52

ddsscusing avg on ubuntu and it's taking up 800 megs of memory....11:54
ddsscseriously wtf11:54
auronandaceddssc: for the most part antivirus isn't really necessary on linux11:55
ubottuAntivirus is something you don't need on !Linux. except where files are then passed to windows computers (perhaps using samba), See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Antivirus11:55

zimboof that window, the one saying it is estimating the size11:55
quackgyvercoachie96: give me a sec to do some research11:56
quackgyvercoachie96: Do you have the package?11:56
quackgyverDid you buy it just now?11:56
zimbo"All files need to be analysed to complete this operation." there's no indication thought that it's doing anything. is that how it is?11:56
ActionPa1snipddssc: try something like clamav or similar. You only need AV if you run a file server with Windows clients (to save them from each other) or a mailserver etc etc.11:56
coachie96what do you mean by "the package"11:57
ActionPa1snipzimbo: there should be a button to skip estimating11:57
coachie96the laptop is over three years old, ran on Windows XP until today, just made the switch to ubuntu, so no, i dont have the original packaging11:57
ActionPa1snipzimbo: I recommend you try xfburn, ive personally never had a success with brassero11:57

MonkeyDustjacks_cool  yes, but what you downloaded is not in the software center13:23
auronandacejacks_cool: how did you install the driver?13:23
usr13_kas: Or just uninstall and then re-install linux-server13:23
usr13_kas: Basically same thing...13:24
_kasusr13, I'll give it a go.  Do you know if any configs will be lost during that process?13:24
jacks_coolauronandace: I dont remember it but I followed some ubuntu forum13:24

mikeasis their a way to reinstall usb mousedrivers on ubuntu13:27
usr13_kas: Ok, good.  I was thinking that would be all it would take.  I would follow up by uninstalling unused kernels, (just something I usually do).13:27
_kasusr13, will do.  boot is getting close to full13:28
uvalahello, I've been getting a partial upgrade message again for a while. how can I get rid of it? when I open update manager, the "install updates" button is greyed. I tried command line update and upgrade, but it didn't upgrade13:28
jacks_coolIt did start yesterday. But today when I started it again , it is showing same thing.13:28
usr13_kas: Sorry it took me so long to come up with an idea, but I just kept searching and finding discussions, (sometimes it's best to just use common sense).13:28
_kasusr13, no apology necessary.  Your help is appreciated.13:29
auronandacejacks_cool: then you need to install the drivers again (and every time the kernel gets updated afterwards)13:29
michael87ok I got a question. I really love clementine music player. but I want a more fun an intuitive way to flow through my music albums with slick animations. This there away to do this with clementine or do I need to keep searching?13:29
usr13_kas: ...sometimes people take a long drawn out method to accomplish what should have been fairly easy task.13:29
jacks_coolauronandace: What is the solution to boot it up?13:29
auronandacejacks_cool: this is why we only support the drivers from the repos13:29
_kasusr13, sometimes that is how you learn13:30
usr13_kas: ... anyway, I think *we* learned something here....13:30
jacks_coolauronandace: I want to start it so that I can follow all the instructions you told.13:30
usr13_kas: Yea. Agreed.13:30
auronandacejacks_cool: see if you can boot the older kernel13:30
jacks_coolauronandace: How can I do that?13:31
auronandacejacks_cool: select it in grub13:31
hplci've been trying to install ubuntu with raid during install, but i cant find that option13:31
jacks_coolauronandace: There is an option of previous versions on boot up, shall I select it?13:31
jacks_coolauronandace: Can you link me to something where I can find how to boot older kernel?13:31
Alabuliehi. ubuntu is cool, but ... has ubuntu any SDK  like Visual Studio?13:31
auronandacejacks_cool: do you intend to use the drivers from the repos or from the website again?13:32
jacks_coolauronandace: from repos as you suggest!13:32
mikeascan jacks_cool and auronandace go into private chat13:32

ActionPa1snipmikeas: does the system have a make and model?13:40
auronandacejacks: you need to find out how to remove the driver you installed then install the one from the repos13:40

usr13raub: It is my opinion that even if you have SSD drive, you should also have a swap partition at least as large as your RAM.  If you have enough RAM, the swap partition will rarely be used, but when needed it is there.  (Just my 2c.)14:22
daftykinsor put the swap on mechanical because you don't care about the capacity there14:24

dragoonisHow can I get permissions to read the "Documents" contents folder?14:40
klikiniyou have to boot into os x and change the permissions to public14:40
usr13Kerim: I suggest that it may not work with the 3.8.0-19 kernel. (May work fine on a Ubuntu 12.04 system just not on 13.04.)  (I just use LTS, so not all that knowledgable on a 13.04 system.)14:41

foo357Hello, is there some way to replace a directory with an archive, the directory is large and I have a limited amount of free disk space.14:43
adamkKerim: First, getting fglrx working on a laptop with hybrid graphics is hit-or-miss.  Some GPUs seem to be supported, some aren't.  However, you don't even appear to have the fglrx driver installed at the moment.14:43
=== xgoo is now known as Guest14191
klikiniraub: my laptop has a bios option to enable/disable the trackpad. check yours?14:43
Kerimadamk: It's a desktop and yes, I uninstalled fglrx drivers just now because I get a black screen after grub with all of the possible drivers I could find.14:44
raubklikini: Mine does not seem to have. I can check again14:44
foo357so the archiving would have to incrementally remove files in the directory (to free up disk space) while the archive is being created14:44
klikiniraub: what brand of laptop?14:44
raubklikini: toshiba14:44
nbubuntuikonia : I mean there are quite some files not yet backup , rather than formating the 10.10 partition , I'd like to install 12.04 on a extended partition alongside with 10.10.I just worry it replace the bootloader to gui version.14:44
Kerimusr13, adamk : According to AMD the 13.4 driver only work swith 12.10. I migh try that. The 13.8 beta driver supposedly works with 13.04 but it's a beta driver so expecting that to work flawlessly is silly in the first place14:45

klikiniraub: have you tried this? http://askubuntu.com/a/19959214:45
adamkKerim: Well the Xorg log file isn't going to tell you anything helpful if you're not looking at it when fglrx is installed.14:45
adamkKerim: Are you trying to use both the intel and radeon GPUs at the same time?14:45
foo357raub: splitting the archive wouldn't help much I think14:46
usr13Kerim: Yea, try the beta again.14:46
ikonianbubuntu: you are making a terrible design decision14:46
christos_can i do a question?14:46
ikonianbubuntu: backup the files from 10.10 - upgrade/install 12.04 in it's place14:46
Kerimadamk: No. It's a desktop and I'm just trying to get the dedicated GPU to run.14:46
raubfoo357: I mean more than one tgz, So the temp space needed is not as much14:46
ikonianbubuntu: dual booting an unsupported distro when you openly admit you are new to linux is unwise going forward, it's is better to backup what you need, upgrade/replace 10.10 with a single supported 12.04/13.04 install14:46
Kerimusr13: What's with those?14:47

adamkDave257: Well what I can say is that there's definitely an error with the radeon kernel driver. Are you using the latest kernel available for 13.04?15:53
Goatman<mikael1_>take a look at this: http://linuxg.net/how-to-install-kernel-3-10-on-ubuntu-linux-mint-debian-and-derivates/15:53
holstein!tty | Dave257 try this next time, and see if you can "sudo reboot" instead15:53
ubottuDave257 try this next time, and see if you can "sudo reboot" instead: To get to the TTY terminals 1-6, use the keystroke ctrl + alt + F1-F6 respectively (Alt+F7 will get you back to your graphical login).  To change the resolution for your TTY, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ChangeTTYResolution15:53
adamkDave257: And is there anything you know that triggers the freeze?15:53
babinlonstonDJones:  :D i Give my office Peoples Link alreay we tried and stored in git ...15:54
ikoniamikael1_: do not do what Goatman is saying15:54
babinlonstonSorry you give15:54
whoeverkermit: what wrong with your graphics15:54
whoeverkermit: what card do you have15:54
Dave257I do get a terminal with alt+f1, where the error goes on repeating. I do have the latest update. Nothing so far. When I click the left button for a menu. But yesterday it happened while watching a video.15:54
Goatman<mikael1_> You can install other kernels as well15:54
ikoniamikael1_: again - do not do what Goatman is suggesting15:54

babinlonstonDJones: thank you sir15:55
mikael1_ikonia: hows that?15:55
Ether_Echoesis there any way I can troubleshoot my gnome panels? I can use Alt+F1 to access the menu, certainly, but it would be nice to fix thi15:55
mikael1_goatman: thanks, ill will check that out def. alot easier then building it l000l15:56
ikoniamikael1_: what do you mean "hows that"15:56
mikael1_goatman: debian ftw15:56
Dave257sudo reboot. That works? good. Any way I can reboot only the graphics card or something? I tried a service lightdm restart. but the screen gets all garbled and it still won't work.15:56
holsteinDave257: i would try different graphics drivers15:57
wilee-nileeEther_Echoes, Have you tried a reboot?15:57
mikael1_ikonia: you said "Do not do what Goatman suggested" and i say hows that?15:57
mikael1_ikonia: why?15:57
holsteinDave257: i think someone already suggested trying an older kernel..15:57
ikoniamikael1_: because you are randomly updating kernels to out of support kernels for no valid reson15:57
Dave257where can I get a different driver? been looking but ATI no longer does a driver for ubuntu or linux.15:58
Kerimadamk: http://pastebin.com/d2Ngy6U115:58
mikael1_ikonia: its pretty old indeed15:58
ikoniamikael1_: it's not old15:58
holstein!ati | Dave257 this is what i refer to15:58
ubottuDave257 this is what i refer to: For Ati/NVidia/Matrox video cards, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/VideoDriverHowto15:58
ikoniamikael1_: the kernels are new, but they are not in support15:58
Ether_Echoeswilee-nilee, Yes15:58
holsteinDave257: there should be an open driver in use after install.. and a proprietary driver from the defaul repos.. and also one from the AMD site that might be different than the one in the repos15:59
wilee-nileeEther_Echoes, Have you done any modifications like using compiz...etc?15:59
holsteinDave257: a very easy thing to try is booting an older kernel.. from grub15:59
Ether_EchoesI've installed compiz but have not done anything with it yet15:59
adamkDave257: What GPU is this?  The radeon driver does have a function where it is supposed to reset if it detects a lockup.  Apparently that's not working in your case15:59
Ether_EchoesI have done theme tweaks15:59
Dave257well, I've been looking for drivers for a radeon x1600 with no luck15:59

adamkKerim: You stil don't have the catalyst driver installed...  At least not properly.15:59
lpapp_hi, is there any ubuntu version using LTS kernel version16:00
ikonialpapp_: all the lts releases use lts kernel16:00
holsteinDave257: there are 3.. and the link i gave will tell you how to search for the ones to try16:00
adamkDave257: yeah, there are no other drivers for that GPU other than the open source ones.16:00
wilee-nileeEther_Echoes, Not sure but that desktop does not use compiz I believe, so did any of this startaround the time of what ever you did with compiz?16:00
holsteinDave257: adamk seems to have first hand experience with that hardware, i would refer to his posts16:00
lpapp_ikonia: 12.04 does not use 3.416:00
MonkeyDustlpapp_  that's a bit too soon, IIRC, 3.10 LTS kernel is only a release candidate16:00
lpapp_nor 3.016:00
adamkDave257: I would definitely report this as a bug to Ubuntu and it's probably worth asking about in #radeon.16:00
Ether_EchoesNo. I've never touched it, actually. It started when I did a partial update earlier today16:00
ikonialpapp_: what ?16:00
Dave257figured as much. an older kernel would it work on 13 or do I have to install ubuntu 11 or something? on previous ubuntu versions the error happened constantly and wouldn't let me try a terminal16:00
lpapp_MonkeyDust: 3.4 is an LTS kernel version.16:01
ikonialpapp_: you didn't say 3.4 - you said "LTS" kernel16:01
mikael1_goatman: gonna try this one, http://linuxg.net/how-to-install-3-9-kernel-on-ubuntu-13-04-12-10-12-04-and-linux-mint-15-14-13/16:01

ikoniamikael1_: why are you changing the kernel16:01
wilee-nileeEther_Echoes, Ah a partial update, never do that, that is the problem, it is partial because npt all dependencies are there.16:01
Kerimadamk: I did install it16:01
ikonialpapp_: LTS kernels are the kernels provided in the main repos from the long term support distros16:01
Ether_Echoes~ Any way to walk it back or do I need to do a fresh reinstall?16:01
MonkeyDustlpapp_  12.04 uses 3.216:01
ikonialpapp_: so 10.04 will use the 10.04 LTS kernel, 12.04 will use the 12.04 LTS kernel, so I'm not why you are referencing kernel version numbers16:02
wilee-nileeEther_Echoes, Those dependencies show up, and if you are lucky will be installed, you may need to run a sudo apt-get dist-upgrade to get them if possible.16:02

Kerimadamk: Hah, kinda late. I'm doing a fresh install of 13.04 as daftykins suggested. I'll message you two once I got things ready16:43
ikonia__oz__: why ?16:43
ikonia__oz__: you are saying "I want these products" - so why are you deleting them ?16:43
kdawgwas this the website you were trying to point me to http://www.linuxformat.com/?16:43
__oz__ikonia: so i intended running that, then installing lamp again16:43
ikoniakdawg: thats the one16:43
ikonia__oz__: why ?16:43
MoPac[30 min bump] Hello; I'm having trouble with chmod and chown for files mounted on an smb share in my home folder (many of which are old windows files with high permissions). Running chmod 777 -R -v or chown username -R -v makes all the changes, but they all seem to instantly revert. Nautilus can't actually delete the directories.16:44
ikonia__oz__: why are you deleting lamp packages, to install lamp packages,16:44
MoPacI believe this is a FUSE mount16:44
daftykinsadamk: sorry to muscle in there16:44
kdawgsee if i can find anything on here about multiboot ubuntu16:44
ikoniaMoPac: you need to change them on the server, not the client16:44
ross`what's the name of the proprietary adobe flash package?16:44
__oz__ikonia: i thought i installed two different server packages for some reason16:44
daftykinskdawg: did you not look at the thing i suggested when you first came in?16:44
ikoniakdawg: not multi-boot ubuntu, multi-boot in general cd/dvd's16:44
ikonia__oz__: why do you think that ?16:44
MoPacikonia: The server is just a FAT-formatted NAS, though, not a whole machine16:45
ikoniaMoPac: FAT does not have permission support16:45
__oz__ikonia: i was googling terminal commands to install lamp16:45
MoPacikonia: hm, maybe it's NTFS; I can check16:45
dabbishwhat is the name of this syntax/design pattern: assert bazz('foo')('bar') == 'foobar'16:45
ikoniaMoPac: then you need to set the permissions on the server16:45
ubuntu_newbieHello there. I am currently in ubuntu 12.04 LTS live session and want to install it on /dev/sda7 alongside backtrack, windows xp and windows 7. The problem is that in this live session ubuntu installation utility is showing that there is no operating system. What should i do?16:46
kdawgthe basics are the same but aren't there specidics to each individual distro?16:46
ubuntu_newbieScreenshot: http://i.imgur.com/FTIdrVf.png16:46
ikonia__oz__: sorry, you make no sense, you've suggested no reason why you think you had multiple versions installed16:46
daftykinsubuntu_newbie: use 'something else' to partition manually16:46

ikoniaubuntu_newbie: you're going to have problems managing dual boot16:46
__oz__ikonia: it had something to do with me executing more than one installation in terminal. it doesnt make sense now i know16:47
ubuntu_newbieikonia: I can manage to restore grub later on.16:47
bhaveshI have a USB device which is detected in windows but not in ubuntu, dmesg gives different kinds of errors each time, ex:  usb 1-6: device descriptor read/64, error -71,  hub 2-0:1.0: unable to enumerate USB device on port 6 etc16:47
ikoniaubuntu_newbie: backtrack and ubuntu use different grub designs, this is going to cause you problems16:47
__oz__ikonia: is it ok to install lamp now?16:48
ikonia__oz__: you already had it installed16:48
bhaveshI tried connecting in all usb ports16:49
__oz__ikonia: yes, i'm new to ubuntu. thought i could have installed it twice16:49
ubuntu_newbieikonia: I was already running these four Operating systems for two years without any conflict. Now i want to replace ubuntu 11.04 by ubuntu 12.04 LTS on /dev/sda7.16:49
__oz__ikonia: two different types16:49
__oz__ikonia: i wanted lamp, thought i had installed another type16:49
ikoniaubuntu_newbie: yes, and the grub designs changed in 12.04 - hence why I'm warning you16:49
Pici__oz__: which two types?16:49
__oz__ikonia: lamp and xampp16:49
Pici__oz__: Well, if you installed xampp, we wouldn't be able to help you.  That is an unsupported method of installing a web server.16:50
MoPacikonia: So even though a file's owner is "root" on my NAS, there is no way for me to sudo chmod or sudo chown it over smb?  Would it be possible via FTP/gigolo or somesuch perhaps?16:50
ActionPa1snipubuntu_newbie: did you MD5 test the ISO you downloaded?16:51
ikoniaMoPac: none of those tools change permissions,16:51
ikoniaMoPac: the point is the permissions are set on the server, however if it's a "fuse" mount as you said, I'm suprised it's not mounted as your current user16:51
ubuntu_newbieActionPa1snip: Yes16:52
daftykinsbhavesh: are we to guess the device?16:52
ubuntu_newbieikonia: Any feasible soln.?16:52
MoPacikonia: It is mounted as my current user. There are only certain files that are edit-locked...apparently ones that were protected files back when they were on a Windows hard drive16:52
MoPacikonia: chmod doesn't change permissions for a file?16:52
ikoniaMoPac: there you go then, you need to fix that at the server as it's just exporting the data16:52
ubuntu_newbieCan i replace old grub with new grub?16:53
ikoniaubuntu_newbie: to be honest, you're using a dead distro, with a current distro with a different boot method, it's a bad mix16:53
failmastahhey guys, i assume that i will end up with bricked system, due to the fact that 13.04 server doesn't want to use a keyfile for luks authorization during boot process, i came to this conclusion after i left only Slot 0 with a key file on /boot device (which works flawless for non-root partitions) and initramfs warned me that "target [luks_disk_root/] uses a key file, skipped"16:53
ikoniaubuntu_newbie: the designs for how ubuntu 12.04 uses grub is not good for dualbooting multiple linux distros sadly16:53
failmastahthis thing was working perfect on 12.0416:53
failmastahi desperately need some tips on my case16:54
ActionPa1snipfailmastah: then why fix it?16:54
daftykinsfailmastah: using a non-LTS server release was quite possibly mistake #216:54
daftykinsin fact it was so big it was #2 as well :(16:54
MoPacikonia: There is no way for me to fix it at the "server", since it's just a NAS with a very minimal managemeent interface16:54
failmastahActionPa1snip, i don't, this is another box16:54
ikoniaMoPac: then take the disk out of it and fix t16:55
ross`what is the flash plugin package?16:55
ross`can someone tell me?16:55
ikonia!flash | ross`16:55
ubottuross`: To install Flash see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RestrictedFormats/Flash - See also  !Restricted and !Gnash16:55
failmastahand i already configured pretty much a lot of stuff16:55
MoPacikonia: It's sealed16:55
failmastahdaftykins, yeah, probably you're right16:55
ikoniaMoPac: what's sealed ?16:55
Kerimadamk, daftykins : Okay guys. I got a fresh non-updated 13.04. What do?16:55
ActionPa1snipfailmastah: then install the LTS on the misbehaving system. Raring is only supported tol Jan uary 2014, forcing a upgrade...16:55
adamkKerim: First, try the driver offered by the "Additional Drivers" program.16:55
MoPacikonia: The NAS. The thing is buttoned-up like an iPhone; disks aren't swappable16:56
daftykins^ sounds good to me16:56
ikoniaMoPac: then how did you put the windows disk in ?16:56
ubuntu_newbieikonia: I am ready to lose backtrack. Can i still  retain windows bootloader in newer grub?16:56
failmastahso is it a solution just wipe all the stuff16:56
failmastahno, i don't think so16:56
ikoniaubuntu_newbie: the windows boot loader is totally seperate from grub16:56
MoPacikonia: It's just backup files copies from an old Windows disk16:56
Kerimadamk, daftykins : No additional drivers listed16:56
ikoniaMoPac: then copy them off and fix them16:57
daftykinsadamk: isn't there some kind of thing you have to force sometimes when it fails to detect certain cards?16:57
adamkdaftykins: Not that I know of...16:57
MoPacikonia: that's the problem: they're protected! I can't delete them16:57
ross`ikonia: ahhh, damn multiverse :p16:57
ActionPa1snipfailmastah: its my advise, non-lts for servers you intend to run for a long time is pretty daft imho16:57
ross`that's why i couldn't find it16:57
ActionPa1snipfailmastah: are there any bugs reported?16:58
failmastahActionPa1snip, i don't plan to run it for a long time16:58

adamkKerim: OK, let's try the driver from AMDs website then...16:59
Kerimadamk, daftykins : No additional drivers, no xorg.conf. lspci does show the GPU.16:59
Kerimadamk: okay16:59
daftykinsbhavesh: is it one of those 'too clever' ones that emulates a CD drive to give access to a device decryption utility?16:59
adamkKerim: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BinaryDriverHowto/ATI#Installing_upstream_drivers_directly_from_AMD.27s_website16:59
daftykinsKerim: sounds good, what's the lspci entry?16:59

bhaveshdaftykins: nope\17:01
ubuntu_newbieikonia: Atleast the ubuntu 12.04 LTS installation utility should detect partitions. It isn't even detecting 9 partitions. Is this problem also due to conflict?17:01
daftykinskdawg: you're still going on about this topic and yet you've still yet to respond to what i kept saying =|17:01

=== CyberJacob is now known as CyberJacob|Away
daftykinsKerim: 13.8 appears to be a beta17:04

kdawgthats the feature i am thinking of using17:06
daftykinsubuntu_newbie: and that's the only HDD?17:07
ubuntu_newbieOnly one HDD which is /dev/sda17:07
daftykinsubuntu_newbie: if you run a terminal, does 'sudo fdisk -l' show partitions or the same?17:07

daftykinsfailmastah: so you decided to ignore all the LTS server advice? :)17:08
Kerimadamk, daftykins : Heh, sudo apt-get update just crashed my system. Did a reboot and now black screen (as in purple for Ubuntu) after bootloaer17:08
failmastahdaftykins, it's too late for this advice, seriously17:08
ikoniaubuntu_newbie: is that the right disk, a 160GB disk ?17:08
daftykinsfailmastah: it's really not. if you get it working, you have until January then it's done. do you want this to work after that time?17:08
kdawgspaming this cause its what the word on topic just not to my problem http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/ubuntu-edge17:09
ubuntu_newbiedaftykins: Gparted is showing unallocated space. Whereas "sudo fdisk -l" is showing my 8 partitions17:09
ubuntu_newbieikonia: Yes, it is.17:09
kdawgwho doesn't want that phone, cause i do17:09
adamkKerim: 'apt-get update' crashed your entire system? I'd run a memory check on that computer then.17:09
failmastahdaftykins, i suspect that the only way to deal with problems is to split them into chains and deal with the most relevant and actual ones17:09
ikoniakdawg: why are you posting that here ?17:09
kdawgyou alll use ubuntu17:09
ikoniaubuntu_newbie: I suggest rebooting, and seeing if your machine still boots17:09
tete_can someone please tell me whats the "correct" order in how to partition the layout with this ugly installer? i dont want to enter my encryption password two times :X want to have luks with lvm, or is there some way to force the installer to use my self-made (with terminal) partition layout?17:09
ikoniakdawg: yes, but why are you randomly posting that link, what do you want us to do with it ?17:09
kdawgfigure i would give it more attention since it only has 15 more days17:09
Kerimadamk: Well, it didn't crash per se. Unity disappeared and I merely had the background and the mouse17:10
ikoniakdawg: we are all aware of it, please don't spam it again in ubuntu channels17:10
failmastahdaftykins, i know that it is a bad idea, but deal is done, i will finish it no matter what, but the first attempt after nothing came up on my mind fast - to come here17:10

ikoniaubuntu_newbie: perfect, thank you, lets see if we can find that bug report17:14
ikoniadaftykins: nah, look at the paste, it's ms dos partition table17:14
daftykinsmy point exactly17:14

ikonialpapp: it is, hence the name "LTS"18:13
lpappikonia: no no18:13
lpappyou are confused.18:13
ikonialpapp: the problem is the difference in meaning between ubuntu "LTS" and the new kernel naming "LTS"18:14
lpappUbuntu LTS is a different project than kernel LTS18:14
ikonialpapp: yes, I'm aware of that, however you didn't make that clear in your initial question18:14
lpappLTS kernel means LTS ubuntu in your opinion? o_O18:14
ubottuLTS means Long Term Support. LTS versions of Ubuntu will be supported for 3 years on the desktop, and 5 years on the server; with the exception of 12.04 (Precise Pangolin), which will be supported for 5 years on the desktop. The current LTS version of Ubuntu is !Precise (Precise Pangolin 12.04)18:14
ikonialpapp: and as ubuntu picks a kernel at "release" time and sticks with it until EOL - you'll find that the kernel "LTS" is out of sync with kernel "LTS"18:14
Scriptonautwell, I removed that line, still no luck unfortunately18:15
ikonialpapp: to the majority of users asking "LTS kernel" means a "kernel from the LTS release"18:15

failmasterhey guys, i assume that i will end up with "unusable" system, due to the fact that 13.04 server doesn't want to use a keyfile for luks authorization during boot process, i came to this conclusion after i left only Slot 0 with a key file on /boot device (which works flawless for non-root partitions) and cryptsetup warned me during initramfs-update that "target [luks_disk_root/] uses a key file, skipped"18:49

I've tried installing drivers from a live USB, blacklisting native drivers in favor of the Broadcom drivers necessary for the machine, and even attempted to update the "nonfree" firmware, but none of this has worked.

daftykinstones: O_O this an ancient netbook?21:47
tonesdaftykins, yes and lubuntu runs great on it21:47
tonesfrom the usb21:47
tonesso I want to install it21:47
daftykinstones: you might be able to try and find a minimal install version21:48
daniel_2013toshset is installed but shows not enabled.21:48
daftykinstones: i think you'll really struggle on that though21:48
jmbelldaftykins: the contents of that file are "auto lo21:48
jmbelliface lo inet loopback"21:48
daftykinsjmbell: ah, that's ok then. i'd imagine you've done a restart since getting the driver going21:49
jmbellyeah, each change I've made has been followed by a hopeful sudo reboot. ;)21:50
tonesdaftykins, is there a site that lists valid minimal hd installs of previous versions of ubuntu?21:50
daniel_2013i was informed my problem is that the toshiba-acpi module is not loaded into the kernel, sudo modprobe toshiba-acpi returns nothing and nothing happens, i wish to see my battery charge level, acpi -v outputs : acpi 1.6 . Am somewhat new to linux, can any1 help ?21:51

daftykinstones: none i know of for spins such as lubuntu i'm afraid21:52
daftykinstones: although it might be an option to use a generic ubuntu minimal ISO then install parts of lubuntu slowly - could be hard though21:52
daniel_2013tones might be better off with arch if he needs a low hd install.21:53
daniel_2013how do i enable / install toshiba-acpi kernel module, and where do i find it.21:55
jmbelltones: There is also DSL (Damn Small Linux), which takes something like 50 MiB if I remember correctly. Not sure what kind of support it provides though.21:55
Dr_Willistones:  tiny core linux = 13mb :)21:55
daniel_2013i would go with puppy linux before goin damn small.21:56
daftykinspuppy that's the one i was thinking of21:56
=== james is now known as Guest60858
tonespuppy for some reason doesnt work will on this machine21:56
Dr_WillisPuppylinux is rather.. weird. :) tiny-core is also very unusual in ways21:56
daniel_2013had an old laptop with 256mb ram running on that21:56
tonestiny core I didnt get the hang of21:56
daniel_2013true, they are, but effective21:56
Dr_WillisTinycore has rather unusual design goals. ;)21:57
tonesoh well, crunchbang I guess21:57
daniel_2013like i said, puppy has everything you could need and is a rather small install.21:57
daniel_2013now, any toshiba laptops out there that have solved this toshiba-acpi kernel module thing.... am stuck, cannot see my battery charge level21:58

ikoniastaykov: upgrading postfix how ?21:59
failmasterhey guys, i assume that i will end up with "unusable" system, due to the fact that 13.04 server doesn't want to use a keyfile for luks authorization during boot process, https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/cryptsetup/+bug/238163/comments/18 anyone?21:59

daniel_2013guest60858 did you try using gparted and creating a new partition table on the usb stick ?22:00
Guest60858daniel_2013, no gparted doesnt reconise the usb stick22:02
Guest60858oh hang on it gives me format option now....do i format in ext4 or fat16?22:02
sk1specialhow do i make the workspace switcher work as two on top of two instead of four in a row?22:03
daniel_2013if you can go fat3222:03
daniel_2013are you using the flash key as install disc or as install hd ?22:03
Guest60858daniel_2013, thanks ...ill try that also in diff usb port22:03
daniel_2013ur welcome.22:04
Guest60858daniel_2013, install disc22:04
daniel_2013then fat32 should be fine, don't forget to flag partition as bootable.22:04
Guest60858also its an 8gb stick, would that make any difference?22:05
daniel_2013i have a 32g as fat3222:05
daniel_2013sorry not true.. its ntfs22:05
jmbelldaftykins: think there is another distro with better broadcom support? Or should I seek further support and wait it out? I've read so many forums citing success with the inspiron 1500 series, but I've had no such luck.22:06
daniel_2013am but should still work22:06
Dr_Willisi dont think you can use ntfs for a live-usb  but it may be changed these days22:06
phoxbefore I go an write it to a USB flash drive, can anyone confirm if the default install ISOs will boot from USB?22:06
Dr_Willisphox:  you can image the iso to flash straight and it should boot fine22:06
fellayaboyis there a migration tool to migrate all info and programs to an new computer from an old computer?22:06

jmbellNo problem. Thanks daftykins. Anyone else have a suggestion for making the dell inspiron 1501 connect to the internet? All necessary drivers are installed, but none appear to be functioning properly.22:09
phoxgrub's imgboot stuff is cool22:09
holsteinjmbell: i would say, it will be easier to get the mini.iso and install22:09
MercXwhat hardware do you have?22:09
holsteinjmbell: sorry.. james4k ^^22:09
daniel_2013jmbell if you have a usb wireless adapter, install it and use it to do updates and upgrades, and hopefully that'll work22:10
MercXi have the broacom and the intel hardware working with the dell inspiron 1500 series laptops22:10
jmbellI don't have one on hand. I've been loading via another computer (the one I'm on now). But even with the updated drivers and firmware it doesn't seem to work22:10
jmbellI've got broadcom as well22:11
Guest60858do i make partition in msdos? it doesnt work and wont let me format22:11
MercXyou have tried the b43 drivers?22:11
holsteinGuest60858: you are using dos?22:11
jmbellMercX: The wired and wireless connections don't show up. I've tried the b43 drivers and a few others as well22:11
holsteinGuest60858: i use gparted from a live CD22:11
MercXfresh install of 13.10?22:12
james4kholstein: yeah, you're probably right22:12
Guest60858holstein, no...sry was using wrong thing22:12
daniel_2013jmbell are you using the linux drivers or are you using ndiswrapper and the windows drivers ?22:12
pixelshuckWhich one is fastest/Easiest?22:12
jmbelldaniel_2013: I've tried to use the ndiswrapper, but I first started with the linux drivers and a firmware update22:12
Guest60858is working now22:12
jmbellMaybe I didn't use the ndiswrapper correctly? Likewise for the firmware/installed drivers? I've only been using linux for a few months now.22:13
MercXi have never used ndiswrapper so i couldn't help you there22:14
=== dpac is now known as dpac|away
daniel_2013jmbell, comming from a noob who just figured out how to use ndiswrapper about 3 months ago, you are doing the ndiswrapper -m, ndiswrapper-ma and modprobe ndiswrapper right ?22:14
MercXrun this "lspci | grep Network"22:14
holsteinthere is an ndis-gtk gui frontend22:14
daniel_2013i find the terminal ndiswrapper easier22:15
daniel_2013can anyone help me with toshiba-acpi kernel module22:15
holsteindaniel_2013: in what way?22:16
Guest60858daniel_2013, im not sure22:16
jmbellI am not exactly sure, daniel_2013. Mercx, if you've gotten yours to work, let me know how.  The output from the lspci is Broadcom Corp. BCM4311 802.11b/g WLAN (rev 01)22:16
holstein!broadcom | jmbell22:16
ubottujmbell: Help with Broadcom bcm43xx can be found at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WifiDocs/Driver/bcm43xx22:16
holsteinjmbell: i always refer to that and just install,manually, whatever is needed22:17
daniel_2013i am trying to get my battery charge level to show, and i was told that apparently i don't have the toshiba-acpi kernel module loaded.  yet when i try modprobe kernel-acpi, i get no output and nothing to show bat level even tho the monitors are install22:17
benkillindoes anybody have any examples of people using ubuntu for professional audio usage such as live concerts and studio recording?22:17
holsteinbenkillin: yes22:17
MercXlas ttime i got it to work i used similar instructions22:17
