wilee-nileewrong nick00:01
wilee-nileeVinnie_win, What is the latest?00:01
bluefox83heh, s'ok00:01
bluefox83gcc doesn't really get updated that often i wouldn't think...so it's likely already got the latest gcc00:01
FastCodeyou know, gcc's latest versions aren't faster just because their newer, They actually suck until the last few days before release, see phoronix.there are some really good benchmarks there.00:03
wilee-nileeVinnie_win, I see debs on the internet.00:04
vaskaloidisHey I installed Nagios from the source and its not working - how do I uninstall it00:07
=== thomas is now known as Guest29879
vaskaloidisI would like to reinstall it from apt-get00:07
vaskaloidiscan I just go ahead and install it from apt-get maybe?00:08
Prock81i just figure out its a binary file so this dont work    egrep -v '\\|\.' file >> newfile00:08
vaskaloidisAnybody know?00:09
exidosWhat do you want to know?00:10
Prock81gedit locks up on open file, and leafpad only shows first 3 chars, nano works perfict but i cant copy the hole thing with nano00:10
vaskaloidisI installed nagios from source exidos but it doesn't work00:10
exidosWhat is the error msg?00:11
GerowenSo I've downloaded Xubuntu and am having the same problem I had with Ubuntu, when I boot from the install source, I get to the animated logo and it just sits there, animating away, but I never actually get to the installation.00:11
vaskaloidisexidos: I can't load the web interface00:11
vaskaloidisexidos: how do I know if its running00:11
GerowenProck81: As far as I'm aware, there is no text editor that will display the contents of a binary file, because it's binary.00:11
vaskaloidisps aux says its running00:11
exidosDid you check the wiki from ubuntu vaskaloidis ?00:11
exidosSry, I dont know what you have to do vaskaloidis00:12
reisio: hi DititalIceCream00:13
vaskaloidiswould it be bad to just install nagios through apt-get along side of its install from source00:15
reisiovaskaloidis: it would at the very least be redundant, don't you think?00:16
vaskaloidisgot that right00:16

jordilopezamat:-/ i'm a little bit puzzled ...00:18
jordilopezamatnewbie here ... i' stucked on the following (it's not a "in production" server) ¿HOWTO optimise current partitioning? ? 1. i started from this disk partioning  http://db.tt/6tcKC9HW  2. then (temporarily) removed swap partition and tried to enlarge /home capacity... but i (stupidly) slipped onto this  http://db.tt/uteG7QaI00:18
reisiojordilopezamat: so what's the problem?00:19
daftykinsooh-err, two separate unallocated segments00:19
jordilopezamat¿HOWTO optimise current partitioning? It's a little bit messy ...00:19
daftykinsand a primary after an extended, eww00:19
jordilopezamatjust want / , /home and /swap00:19
daftykinsi'd back it up and start again00:19
jordilopezamatyes daftkyins... exactly :-/00:20
jordilopezamatstart again from scratch you mean ?00:20
jordilopezamati'm on a Live-Usb now , FYI00:21
jordilopezamatthanks again :-)00:21
jordilopezamatfor your hints...00:21

crypticmofohi all .. i used unetbootin to put a ubuntu iso onto it / i boot up and i get a boot 0 erro00:22
crypticmofoany ideas ?00:22
chrs_when i try to dpkg -i install a package i get a conflict error00:23
chrs_but when i try to uninstall the conflicting package, it wants to uninstall a bunch of other packages00:23
chrs_can i just swap them?00:23
crypticmofoanyone ?00:24
crypticmofoim trying to boot ubuntu from a usb drive ?00:24
daftykinscrypticmofo: try universal usb installer from pendrivelinux.com00:24
wilee-nileecrypticmofo, Check the sum of the iso and maybe try another usb loader.00:25
stirnwercrypticmofo, ive had similar issues00:25
crypticmofostirnwer i always have issues with unetbootin .. what we are both saying its a POS00:25
stirnwercrypticmofo, i find that a handy way is to install grub(4dos?) or syslinux on the usb and then add various operating systems to it00:26
Dr_Willisi have also had issues with unetbootin in the past. I tend to use the many tools at the Pendrivelinux web site00:26
Dr_WillisI really like the ones that setup grub2 to boot ISO files. that way you can have a single flashd rive that boots differnt disrtos00:26
stirnwercrypticmofo, then you may just try with various boot commands, edit the menu file if something goes wrong on first attempt00:26
Dr_Willisor i just 'dd' (image) the  iso file straight to the flash.00:26
stirnwercrypticmofo, "i boot up and i get a boot 0 erro" - could you spell out the entire error message?00:28
josehey guys! I'm trying to install ubuntu server 12.04 from one of canonical's CDs, and I get the error00:28
joseoops, sorry00:29
joseerror is: '/install/vmlinuz: file not found'00:29
wilee-nilee!md5sum | jose00:29
ubottujose: To verify your Ubuntu ISO image (or other files for which an MD5 checksum is provided), see http://help.ubuntu.com/community/HowToMD5SUM or http://www.linuxquestions.org/linux/answers/LQ_ISO/Checking_the_md5sum_in_Windows00:29
Dr_Willisfirst guess would be it was a bad iso file or a bad burn jose00:29
reisiojose: from the installation, or the CD as it boots up?00:29
josereisio: once I get the screen to select the options00:30
Dr_Willisthe screen on the Install cd?00:30
reisiojose: from an installation, or the CD?00:30
joseDr_Willis, wilee-nilee: those checks have been done by the provider :)00:30
josereisio: from the CD00:30
reisiowhat Dr_Willis said, then00:30
Dr_Williswhat provider?00:30
wilee-nileejose, What provider?00:30
Vinnie_winwilee-nilee: I need 4.7.2 but I have 4.6.300:30
Dr_WillisIve definatly seen 'good' cd's not totally be readable by a differnt pc due to differances in the optical drive00:30
josewell, Canonical sends LoCos CDs that have been burnt by a provider, they make sure images are the same and there are no burn failures00:31
wilee-nileeVinnie_win, What release you running?00:31
Dr_WillisI would be very much suprised if they verify every single cd.00:31
Dr_Willisburn them in bulk, ship them out.00:31
daftykinsverifications can be quick processes after a burn though00:31
tgm4883jose, I'd be surprised if the canonical shipped CD's were burnt00:32
joseyeah, I'm trying with another one00:32
joseand another CD gives out the same result00:33
wilee-nileejose, I would get the iso from the torrent it checks them.00:33
tgm4883or zsync00:33
josewilee-nilee: as I said, I didn't download the ISO.00:34
wilee-nileejose, Did I say you did?00:34
bluefox83ok, so i finally just broke down and i'm moving files one folder at a time and rsync just wasn't working, kept saying operation wasn't permitted...no idea what that was about. but it's currently sending at a whopping 600k across the wifi00:34
KM0201jose: well is downloading the ISO not an option for some reason?00:34
joseindirectly, but let's get back to the point :)00:34
joseKM0201: I already did, and it was torrented00:34
wilee-nileejose, Your point is pointless if you want help.00:34
KM0201if it was torrented, then it's not the ISO00:35
reisiowell, it could be the ISO :)00:35
chrs_i want to install package a2.deb but it conflicts with a1.deb. but a lot of packages depend on a1.deb. is there an easy way to do a swap?00:35
tgm4883what what?00:35
wilee-nileecanonical has torrents00:35
josewilee-nilee: well, I'll try with some other people around, thanks anyways!00:35
reisiochrs_: what're the packages? :p00:35

chrs_reisio: they're on my local hard disk00:36
KM0201you should be able to remove "a2" w/o removing all its dependencies00:36
OerHeksjose so what is your CPU architecture?00:36
chrs_ok, you mean remove "a1"?00:36
reisiowhat, not where00:36
Dr_Williswonder if dpkg  can do a dpkg -i foo1  -r foo2 (well wait.. dpkg cant remove)00:36
chrs_reisio: oh sorry00:36
chrs_reisio: they are x drivers00:36
Dr_Willischrs_:  whats the package names exactly?00:37
joseOerHeks: one of the oldest 64x00:37
KM0201chrs_: well, if you remove "a1".. and it says.. "these packages are no longer required"... that doesn't mean they are being removed... now if it says they're being removed... that's different00:37
bluefox83i wish there was a way to move those files faster via smb because it's saying it's gonna take over a day to move them all :(00:37
reisiobluefox83: use something else? :p00:37
chrs_libegl1-mesa is what i want to remove, chromium-mali-opengles is what i want to install00:38
chrs_naturally, a lot of packages depend on the mesa libraries00:38
tgm4883bluefox83, don't use wifi?00:38
reisiobluefox83: you're moving from one internal hard disk to another internal hard disk, over the network is that right?00:38

reisiobasichash: echo 'set ts=4 sw=4' >> ~/.vimrc00:39
basichashreisio: thanks00:39
chrs_KM0201: it says dpkg: dependency problems prevent the removal of libegl1-mesa00:40
chrs_then it doesn't remove the package00:40
KM0201well, there you go00:40
yeehiWhat is the maximum amount of traffic on the busiest Ubuntu mirrors at peak times? What is an average amount of traffic (up/down) for a busy server?00:41
Dr_Willisbusiest.. is on release day. :) when they are so busy they are down.. ;P00:41
reisiomore than a bread basket00:41
Dr_Willisi wonder if they got extra servers they bring up for release day/week loads.. then  turn them off  when not needed00:42
basichashHow do I save an open file in vim?00:42
tgm4883Dr_Willis, they repurpose build servers from LP00:42
tgm4883last I checked anyway00:42
chrs_KM0201: i guess i want to force remove the package and install my own package in its place00:43
daftykinsbasichash: escape, :wq, enter i think00:43
chrs_it should work since it provides the same libraries00:43

Dr_Willistime to run vimtutor and learn some vim i think00:43
KM0201chrs_: i think that would be a bad idea... if it provided the same libraries, it wouldn't cause the error when you tried to install it.00:43
basichashdaftykins: how do I do :wq? What is it?00:43
daftykinstyping exactly that00:44

chrs_KM0201: http://pastebin.com/wTT1J8kt00:45
wilee-nileetood, dist-upgrade means what to you?00:46
chrs_the thing is i don't care about the mesa libs at all00:46
crypticmofo hey all00:47
toodupdates the kernel00:47
crypticmofoi can boot up after using the pendrive thanks .. but it keeps trying to check for a cdrom not my usb drive00:47
wilee-nileetood, If you run it, it tells you waht is there.00:47
crypticmofoshould i download a live ubuntu iso then boot form there ?00:47
toodthe intewebs say the currant kernel is 3.8.0-2800:48
holsteincrypticmofo: you made a live "pen drive"?00:48

holsteincrypticmofo: you *dont* "boot in ubuntu partition" to install.. that specifically will not work00:49
crypticmofoholstein it has gparted right ?00:49
toodshoot, I did read apt-get man, buut did mis understand00:50
holsteincrypticmofo: you would make installation media.. there is an iso.. you download the iso and either burn it to cd or make a bootable usb stick (i use unetbootin)00:50
holsteincrypticmofo: gparted is in the repos.. and either is on the live installation media, or installable00:50

crypticmofoholstein yes ubuntu is on my usb drive .. i can boot to it .. but when i get to the install part it looks for a cdrom not my usb drive and it fails00:50
bluefox83sorry it took so long to respond >.>00:50

bluefox83crypticmofo: you might have a bad iso :/00:52
wilee-nileecrypticmofo, I would check the sum on the iso, and answer holstein00:52
DanC_since when does an `apt-date update` take 10 minutes? is it just my network, or is anybody else seeing this?00:52
crypticmofook one sec ok00:52
holsteincrypticmofo: d you have 64bit hardware? do you want 12.04? how did you make the bootable stick?00:53
wilee-nileeDanC_, YOU changed anything, like using a proxy...etc?00:53

crypticmofook let me mdf it00:55
holsteincrypticmofo: the commmon thread is, the downloaded iso, your network.. the usb stick (potentially) and you00:55
Vinnie_winDanC_: Yeah I got some of the libraries. I know i Have boost because I've been building my app with it. I would like to remove it, and reinstall the latest boost myself00:55
* DanC_ presumes he means the boost c++ library http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boost_(C%2B%2B_libraries)00:55
bluefox83that's odd, i always think *I* am the problem first...then go on to the software, then the hardware...lol00:56
Vinnie_winDanC_: I updated my gcc using a ppa and now the prebuilt boost libraries are incompatible00:56
DanC_eek... you're way out there on the edge, Vinnie_win.00:56
DanC_what _are_ you trying to do?00:56
bluefox83Vinnie_win: that's why i try not to update libraries like that...00:56
Vinnie_winDanC_: First I want to remove all traces of the existing boost install. Then I want to reinstall boost on my own using the instructions on boost.org00:57
=== andrex is now known as andrex|off
DanC_really? you want to play around with installing libraries? and then you'll be happy? no further goal?00:57
Vinnie_winDanC_: No more using ubuntu's package manager for the boost libraries..I need to do it myself, and build the libraries myself, so I can have different  versions installed for testing00:57
crypticmofoholstein cff39ccc589c7797aacce9efee7b5f93 *ubuntu-12.04.2-alternate-amd64.iso is the same as http://releases.ubuntu.com/precise/MD5SUMS00:58

holsteinVinnie_win: build what you like.. and maintain it on your own.. the repo versions are officialy supported here..00:58
holsteinVinnie_win: i would probably consider virtualization for that00:58
Vinnie_winholstein: Sure. But how do I remove what is already installed?00:58
=== andrex|off is now known as andrex
Vinnie_winholstein: I definitely used the package manager to get boost in there in the first place. I dont recall building it myself00:59
DanC_apt-get remove libboost-dev #or the like; use apt-cache search or dpkg -l to find the name00:59
Vinnie_winDanc_: Ah yes! libboost-dev that is definitely ringing a bell00:59
holsteincrypticmofo: ok.. you dont need to share that here.. you can just test that on your own, and confirm it.. then move on.. try a different USB stick.. try the same stick on different hardware.. make the stick with unetbootin *after* manually reformatting it01:00
DanC_might I recommend checkinstall to package up the results when you build it yourself, Vinnie_win01:00
holsteincrypticmofo: i assure you.. the iso's work.. and i use them routinely.. what *specific* issue did you have with unetbootin?01:00
Vinnie_windanc_: Not sure what you mean by package up the results01:00
DanC_nobody else is seeing `apt-get update` take 15 minutes? (and counting...)01:01
wilee-nileeDanC_, Have you checked you net speed?01:01
holsteinDanC_: no.. and as i (and other suggested( that can be due to slow sources.. did you add PPA's?01:01
crypticmofoholstein first things first im going to parition my hard drive and start over ok01:01
DanC_heh... I *just* typed speedtest.net into my browser as you wrote that, wilee-nilee01:01
DanC_and yes, I've added PPAs here and there. any clues on telling which one is slow?01:02
holsteincrypticmofo: do what you like.. i use a gparted live CD.. if you cant boot live CD's, you might have issues in generall doing maintenance like that01:02
holsteinDanC_: i usually disable them *all*, run the updated command.. and add them back01:02
Vinnie_windanc_: Could you give me a clue to where in the file system I should extract the boost_1_54 directory? Would it normally go in /usr/local/ or something?01:02
holsteinDanC_: one at a time..01:02
wilee-nileeDanC_, did you check that all the ppa's have releases for your release?01:03
crypticmofoholstein there is a option on the gparted webpage to use the usbliveuniveral thing to make it boot01:03
holsteincrypticmofo: i use unetbootin.. use what is working, which right now, is nothing for you01:03
DanC_Vinnie_win, well, now there you're getting off-topic for this channel. I'd bet there's a #boost channel not far from here.01:03

bluefox83dude, i'm tellin ya, there is no compatible cable in that desktop to hook that hard drive in there!01:21
reisiowhy? One is PATA and one is SATA?01:21
bluefox83there's an IDE and an SATA...none of them will hook to this drive :(01:21
reisioyour laptop uses neither IDE or SATA?01:22
reisiothat's hard to believe01:22
bluefox83it just kinda sits on a little connector...i dunno which it woudl be01:22
reisiowell, it's almost certainly one or the other :)01:22
bluefox83i'm really not taking the hard drive out to do that anyways >.>01:22

themanwithnofacenew to ubuntu, i think after installing a steam demo i have a useless 6GB  file called ".swl"  in my home folder, or is that not useless..03:49
themanwithnofacewhat is it?03:49
Dr_Willisthemanwithnoface:  try 'file thefilename.swl' and see what it says03:49
ubottuValve have officially announced that they are developing Steam and are working with !ubuntu during their development, see http://blogs.valvesoftware.com/linux/steamd-penguins/ for further details, see https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Valve for install instructions, you can also join #ubuntu-steam for discussion.03:49
Dr_Willisid just delete it. ;) but im reckless03:50
themanwithnofaceooh... it says ".swl: Vim swap file, version 7.3"   ...damn... why is it 6GB ?? go to #vim?   ;\03:50
Dr_Williscould be file is confused also.  and miss-identifying it03:51
themanwithnofaceno i mean if i wrongly closed vim while editing a bunch of times, could it become 6GB ???   so i'll just back up my vimrc and delete it?03:52
Dr_Willis.vimrc is not the same as a vim swap file03:52
Dr_Willisi wouldent think it would become 6gb. unless you were doing some hard core editing03:52
themanwithnofaceDr_Willis:  i was messing with my appSwitcher.js  files in cinnamon...  like a lot.. lol  to tweak the GUI...  a swap file is like a small back up right?03:54
themanwithnofacei mean my home is SMALL all there is is eclipse.. and like.. i'm new to ubuntu and all..  i want to delete but..  :<03:55
Dr_Willisi would think its like a memory swap file.. since vi also has 'backup' featires03:55
themanwithnofaceyeah and my vimrc doesnt have the whole quick and efficient saving/writing/redraw stuff in it03:56
lotuspsychjecan the useradd gui be removed as package?03:56
Dr_Willisand a vim swap file (from what i googled) starts with a . and ends with swp03:56
Dr_Willisso its very likely that file is just missnamed, or getting missientified03:57
Dr_Willisrename it to 'delte-me-later.whatever'   ;) and see if anything breaks03:57
themanwithnofaceok i did03:58
themanwithnofacenow i'm sudo apt-get updating03:58
themanwithnofacesuccessful update...  Dr_Willis  what else can i do to test if it was anything?  i mean.. my gui is fine.. still on smuxi IRC..  any terminal commands?04:00
Dr_Willisid just delet the thing. It may be some left over steam cache04:00
somsipthemanwithnoface: open vim and make sure it doesn't complain, but I've not come across problems with things like this before04:02
somsipthemanwithnoface: make sure steam still works ok, but again, very unlikely to complain04:03
themanwithnofacek, deleted it. updated..  vim is running fine.. saved wrote and compiled a file in vim..  don't care about steam, too poor for gaming, and laptop too sucky for TF2...04:05
somsipthemanwithnoface: sounds safe enough then04:05

Dr_Williswhat are you wanting to do exctly04:18
phyzix5761I just want to find my programs04:18
Dr_Willisi dont see how a 'update, or upgrade' would   be  part of the answer.. unless you just want to try things at random to see if it suddendly starts working. ;)04:19
GBGamesI recently purchased a Dell XPS 8700 with an Nvidia graphics card in it. I installed Ubuntu 12.04, and I was using it shortly after I updated it, along with installing the proprietary nvidia drivers. It seemed to be working fine, and then I noticed that it was frozen while running VirtualBox. Upon reboot, I can't get it past the splash screen, and when I googled for an answer, nothing seemed to apply that I could see, but maybe I'm missing04:19
GBGames something.04:19
Dr_Willisid test with a Newly made user. see if the issue also affects them04:19
GBGamesAny help would be appreciated.04:19
phyzix5761ok I will try that Dr_Willis thanks04:19
chiquesI don't open emails or URLs' that I don't recognize. Should I be concerned about "Hand of Thief"?04:19
Dr_Willisif the new user works.. then clean out the problem users settings/reset unity04:19
somsipchiques: not especially04:19
chiquessomsip, so why is it getting so much hype?04:20
Dr_Willischiques:  id  be amazed at http://askubuntu.com/questions/330911/hand-of-thief-malware04:20
somsipchiques: because it's the 'first' linux trojan openly for sale04:20
Dr_Willisits a slow news week? ;)04:20
somsipDr_Willis: good link04:20
wilee-nileeGBGames, the proprietary drivers generally don't follow kernel upgrades and are advised not to use, unless that is all that works or you know how to deal with this.04:21
Dr_Willisfirst google hit ;)04:21
somsipDr_Willis: heh04:21
GBGameswilee-nilee: Ok, so how do I revert back to noveau?04:21
Dr_WillisHand of Thief has no good ways of infecting Linux users. Instead, the cracker "suggested using email and social engineering as the infection vector."04:21
wilee-nileeGBGames, No idea all I know is what I stated, others do though. ;)04:21
chiquesDr_Willis, somsip how does the community/developers handle this sort of deal? Would they test it and patch the vulnerabilities?04:22
GBGameswilee-nilee: Ok, thanks.04:22
somsipchiques: there is no patch for user gullibility04:22
Dr_Willischiques:  seems you basically have to 'ok it to run' or somthing. :) still reading04:22
somsipchiques: blase answer - I don't know the ins and outs of how it works. Good info on the link from Dr_Willis04:22
GBGamesA lot of answers online assume that I can get something loaded, but if I get to the splash screen, I can't switch to a terminal. I have to make sure I hit Esc before it gets that far.04:22
Dr_Willisi wonder if the guy 'selling'  the 'Hand of thief' is actually just ripping off the people that would buy malware :P04:23
somsipDr_Willis: maybe the installer has malware installed in it. Malception...04:23
Dr_Willissomsip:  from what im reading its not actually been looked at (the code/whatever) its just someone seems to be 'selling' it and claimingit works..04:24
Dr_Willisbut i cant really seem to find any 'hard' info on it04:25

crypticmofoi have one of those lenov twist laptops that use efi right / i disabled al that installed ubuntu to /dev/sda4 and i told it to put grub on it / i boot up my machine and windows till pops up / i know it means still has a boot flag04:46
crypticmofohow do i change this ?04:46
ShapeShifter499zram or zswap? which is better?04:48
Dr_Willischiques:  patch would be 'telling the users  to not run some executable/script they get in an email' from what im reading. ;)04:48
crypticmofois there a command line to boot ubuntu that is on /dev/sda404:48
Dr_Willisthunder1212:  your apt cache MAY have some of the packages. that will save some downloading. but i doubt if it has them all04:48
crypticmofothe options i have at ubuntu instaler are install / command-line install / advanced options04:48
Dr_Williscrypticmofo:  so you lost your grub menu? and need to replace it?  or what happaned04:49
GBGamesIs there any log that I can check that explains why LightDM says it is running but nothing is happening?04:49
crypticmofoDr_Willis:  so windows is the main os right i paritioned windows to like a 100gig primary parition /dev/sda4 / once the install was done it said to install grub .. i said yes .. when i boot back up i don't see grub i see windows04:50
ShapeShifter499I'm finding I'm bumping up the 4gb limit my current laptop has a lot, I read zram and zswap could help but which one would be faster?04:50

caf4926crypticmofo: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/10573557/Ubuntu/13_04/5.png04:53
Dr_Williscrypticmofo:  if you can get a minimal system booted, with a console command line, you can chroot in and try fixing grub.04:53
caf4926crypticmofo: you can just boot the live cd and chroot the system04:53
crypticmofocan't i just put gparted back on the usb drive / boot it up and put a boot flag on /sda4 ?04:53
reisioboot flags are pretty much entirely irrelevant :)04:54
Dr_Williswhy do you think the boot flag matters? Im not even sure grub pays attention to them04:54
ShapeShifter499reisio, it's not like I'm posting in every ubuntu channel I can and it's not like I'm posting the question in #debian when I clearly run ubuntu04:54
crypticmofocf the live usb isn't live i only have 4 optoins / install / command-line install / advnced optoins / help04:54
Dr_Williscrypticmofo:  try alt-ctrl-f1 through f6 and see if theres a console on one of them04:54
reisioShapeShifter499: nope, it's more like you're posting in more than one channel excluding #debian (potentially)04:54

ThelasMy router was recently changed; after this, I stopped being able to load web pages (DNS lookups fail and I can't load pages by IP) when on wireless.  This machine can still connect via ethernet to the router and works fine; other (Mac) machines can connect wirelessly with no problems.  I am not very familiar with networking, so don't know what other information may be of use - please say so if you need anything to be able to help.05:15
Dr_WillisThelas:  you are using DHCP and not static addressing in network manager?05:16
holsteinThelas: your home router was recently changed?05:16
ThelasDr_Willis: Yes, for both wireless and wired.05:17
Thelasholstein: Yes.05:17
holsteinThelas: why/how? and by whom? ask them to change it back..05:17
Ben64or just set a static dns server05:18
Dr_Williscan you een ping the gateway?05:18
Thelasholstein: Family member decided to upgrade bandwidth allowed and ISP required we purchase/use a new router to do so.05:18
holsteini would want to reset the router, and make sure its working properly.. set good passwords and check the dns settings.. etc05:18
ThelasDr_Willis: Haven't tested it; is there a way to tell ping to use the wireless connection or do I have to disconnect wired to do so?05:19
holsteinThelas: i would ask who you purchased the router from for support..05:19
ThelasThey say they won't support Linux users (despite the person in the store when it was purchased claiming it would work with Ubuntu machines...)05:20
holsteinThelas: then, login on the osx machine you referenced above, and ask them for support05:20
Ben64holstein: you're not really helping...05:21
holsteinBen64: its not on topic here05:21
Ben64then direct him to ##networking or something05:21
ThelasHm..?  I don't get what you're suggesting.  The OSX machine works fine with the wireless.  I tried telephone support when this was discovered and got no help.05:22
holsteinThelas: i would reset the unit, and set good passwords.. confirm the dns settings are "good"05:22
holsteinBen64: i'll just let you take it.. thanks!05:22
ThelasI'm not sure what you mean by "good" DNS settings.05:22

ThelasBen64: Do you mean ping the router from this machine, or something else?05:24
Ben64Thelas: from whichever machine isn't working05:24
Dr_WillisThelas:  the  command 'ifconfig' should show you your ip. and then you can tell the routers ip.05:24

ThelasRight, back.  If it didn't show up, the Ubuntu machine can't ping the router (when on wireless connection.)05:30
Dr_Willisif the router is not giveing the linux box an ip/dns stuff.. theres deeper issues going on05:30
xmetalhmm ... for some reason (not that i am dumping Grub2) ... this gfxboot thing has me curious (I have already downloaded the packages)05:30
holsteinThelas: is the access point named the same? and has the same password? you could try throwing the connection away in the manager and try joining again05:31
Thelasholstein: It is.  Ubuntu claims it's connected; iwconfig shows the correct Mac address for the router (matches with the router's settings page.)05:32
holsteinThelas: please open the network manager, and go to connection and delete the access point, and reconnect,a nd test05:32
holsteinThelas: maybe, right click on the network icon in the tray, and go to "wireless".. highlight the AP and "delete" it..05:33

ThelasDr_Willis: Mac times out pinging the address Ubuntu machine claims.05:41
holsteinMyrtti: says it used to work with another router :/05:41
holsteinThelas: i think this is something odd.. i would make *certain* you are connecting to the proper access point. if it were me, i would try a live CD on that machine..05:42
Dr_Willisi got a new router.. but i added it to the old one. ;) so i got them daisy-chained.. heh..05:42
Myrttithis sounds familiar but alas I have to go, and I can't quite pinpoint how it is familiar05:42
Thelasholstein: I definitely am (iwconfig shows the same Mac address as the router setup page; that's enough to guarantee that, right?); sadly, don't think I have a blank CD to burn one.05:43
Dr_Willisuse a usb perhaps? you can also setup grub2 to boot ISO files if you got the skills.05:43
holsteinThelas: is the other router there? plug it in, connect and see if you can ping it.. connect to *any* other AP and see if its working05:44
Thelasholstein: Sadly, only way I can think of to connect to another AP right now is to get family's iPhone to make one, and said iPhone is located in a room with sleeping owner of it, so... Anything else anyone can think of to test for now? If not, I'll come back later when I can test that.05:49
holsteinThelas: no..05:50
ThelasThanks for the help regardless.  Be well.05:50

floatingrainI would apperciate it if anyone could help me get Ubuntu booting again.05:55
* floatingrain is currently booted into live USB mode, however the commands for fixing it on 10.x does not work.05:55
blazemorefloatingrain: Are you using Wubi?05:56
floatingrainblazemore, Apparently so.05:56
floatingrainblazemore, Wait. I do not boot Ubuntu THROUGH windows06:00
floatingrainWhen I start up the computer I'm at window's bootloader, I pick Ubuntu. Is that wubi? I do have wubi files on my windows pc, and I'm not sure if I'm using wubi or not.06:01
floatingrainI see /host/ on Ubuntu06:01
reisiofloatingrain: inconclusive, but could be06:01
floatingrainreisio, how can I tell if I'm uing wubi or not, and how can I boot back into ubuntu?06:01
babinlonstonInstalled ubuntu 12.04 LTS and now i want to remove the left side tool bar and i want to keep my computer and other icons in desktop how can i do it06:02
reisiofloatingrain: how many disks have you got? You can't boot into Ubuntu now?06:02
floatingrainreisio, I only have one HDD. I can't boot into ubuntu - I get the wubildr error.06:02
reisiowell that sounds like wubi to me :p06:02
floatingrainI power up my computer, it asks me if I want to boot into Windows or Ubuntu.06:03
floatingrainI press ubuntu, I see two lines quickly flash by about unable to find wubildr, and then I'm back to the emergency grub recovery prompt.06:03
reisiowhat'd you do to break it? :)06:03
floatingrainreisio, I'm pretty sure the package manager broke it. I did nothing in particular. I was on windows for a few days before coming back.06:03
reisiommm, ewll06:03
reisiowell, even06:03
reisioI s'pose this is why people don't like wubi06:04
floatingrainI don't even know I have wubi.. What's the difference?06:04
floatingrainWhat's the difference between wubi and dual booting? because it looks exactly like a dual boot.06:04
reisiowith wubi, your Ubuntu is actually installed into a _file_ inside your Windows filesystem06:04
reisiowhen you boot it, it pretends the file is a disk06:04
floatingrainwhere is that file?06:04
reisioit's somewhere :)06:04
reisioI'd check program files first, then c:\06:04
floatingrainbecause the disks I see are a max of 256MB06:04
reisioit will probably have an obvious name06:05
floatingrainand that's obviously not enough.06:05
floatingrainreisio, C:/ubuntu/disks/root.disk ? that's 0 bytes06:05
reisioaccording to what, Windows?06:05
floatingrainaccording to ubuntu. I'm in a liveUSB06:06
floatingrainswap.disk is 268.4 MB06:06
floatingraincrap dont tell me i lost my files06:06
reisiofloatingrain: do you recall how much space was used on your Ubuntu system, roughly?06:06
floatingrainreisio, I believe it's /dev/sda606:07
reisiowhat is? :)06:07
floatingrainThat's 97 GB06:07
floatingrainAnd I think my ubuntu instnce was along that. But it's not recongized by Windows or GParted.06:07
floatingrainThe file system is lvm2, is that expected?06:07
reisiofloatingrain: this looks fancy and promising :) http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=163919806:08
floatingrainreisio, tried that, does not work on 12.0406:08
reisioI s'pose it's possible you installed via wubi but have Ubuntu on a dedicated partition06:08
floatingrainmount commands give me an error. I think I installed via wubi but I'm pretty sure it's on a dedi partition06:08
reisioif that's the case, it'd probably be best to remove the wubi part and just keep the data06:08
floatingrainRight. But I need to boot first, I need my data there.06:08
Dr_Willisi didebnt think wubi could install to a dedicated partion.06:08
reisioit's pretty unlikely the data has been harmed06:09
Dr_Willisit could access a linux partion i guess.06:09
floatingrainWell I have a /dev/sda6 with expected sizes06:09
reisioDr_Willis: I think the win32 executable is all called "wubi"06:09
floatingrain"Unknown filesystem type: 'LVM2_member'"06:09
reisioDr_Willis: yeah? and one option is to do a dedicated install06:09
floatingrainI can't mount /dev/sda6 :(06:09
reisiofloatingrain: how'd you try to mount it?06:09
Dr_Williswubi can do a dedicated install? never noticed that.  but i dont recall wubi ever doing lvm stuff either. ;)06:09
floatingrainsudo mount /dev/sda6 /media/lnx06:09
reisioDr_Willis: heh, dunno06:10
floatingrainOK, so /dev/sda1 is my windows boot directly. /dev/sda2 is Windows's C. /dev/sda3 is my windows/lenovo recovery. /dev/sda4 is extended, /dev/sda5 is ext4 and is 500MB. /dev/sda6 is lvm2, 97GB, lvm flags06:10
floatingrainI am rpetty sure /dev/sda4 is Ubuntu and the /dev/sda5 is the Ubuntu boot drive, with /dev/sda6 my data. What does lvm flags mean?06:10
reisiofloatingrain: what does 'pvs' say?06:10
Dr_Willissounds like sda5 may be / and sda6 may be /home/06:11
floatingrainThe program pvs is not currently installed. installing06:11

poeeHi, I have a 1tb hard disk that is fully ext4 and ubuntu is installed on that. I want to partition it so I can install windows while keeping ubuntu intact. how can I do that?06:13
reisiopoee: you'd need to resize the partition/s to make space for a couple windows partitions06:13
floatingrainpoee, resize it and then make a new partition06:13
floatingrainwell shrink it06:13
reisiopoee: resizing isn't 100% safe, it's more like 75% safe, so back up anything you care about first06:13
reisiopoee: can use gparted from your live OS06:14
reisiocrypticmofo: yeah?06:14
crypticmofoDr_Willis:  i booted to a live cd and my ubuntu is actually on /dev/sda606:14
reisiocrypticmofo: pretty weird06:14
poeereisio, the computer is under warranty. I can backup the data.06:14
reisiopoee: not sure what one has to do with the other, but good? :)06:14
crypticmofoso if my ubuntu install is on /dev/sda606:15
poeereisio, you said resizing wasn't safe :P06:15
crypticmofodo i do sudo grub root (hd0,6) ?06:15
floatingrainreisio, ok, got pvs06:15
floatingrain/dev/sda6 vg_somebody lvm2 a- 97.16g 0% free06:15
reisiopoee: it's not 100% safe, for your data06:15
reisiopoee: your hardware should be 100% safe :)06:15
floatingrainit says 0% free! is it corrupted ??06:15
reisiofloatingrain: would probably say 'corrupted' if it could detect that, don't you think? :p06:16
poeereisio, ah. okay :). Can I use gparted from my native ubuntu, or do I have to use gparted from a Live CD?06:16
reisiofloatingrain: lvdisplay /dev/vg_somebody06:16
reisiopoee: live06:16
floatingrainreisio, but it says it's 0% free.. what do I look for it in there?06:17
floatingrainI see 3 logical volumes06:17
poeereisio, okay, got it, thanks :)06:17
reisiopoee: also chances are Windows will prefer space at the beginning of the disk, not the end06:17
floatingrain/dev/vg_somebody/lv_swap /dev/vg_somebody/lv_home /dev/vg_somebody/lv_root06:17
floatingrainthis is my ubuntu disk!06:17
reisiopoee: and it might want primary partitions (GNU/Linux doesn't care about primary or not)06:17
floatingrainAll 3 are NOT available.06:17
reisiofloatingrain: you should be able to mount either lv_home or lv_root06:17
floatingrainreisio, how do I only mount one of them?06:18
reisiomount /dev/vg_somebody/lv_home /mnt/point, etc.06:18
poeereisio, I don't want this format to affect my primary linux installation06:18
reisiopoee: naturally06:18
reisiopoee: which version of Windows are you installing?06:18
floatingrainreisio, "special device /dev/vg_somebody/lv_home does not xist"06:19
poeereisio, Windows 8 64 bit, provided by manufacturer(Dell)06:19
reisiopoee: ah, do you recall how many partitions it required?06:19
Flannelfloatingrain: look in /dev/mapper/*06:19
poeereisio, No. When I got the computer, I pretty much wiped it clean and installed ubuntu06:19
rednetwho is the german channel?06:19
reisiorednet: /msg alis list *ubunt*de06:20
floatingrainchannel flood?06:20
floatingrainBut anyway: so my situtation is I have Ubuntu on it's own partition, but when I boot I get an error about wubildr06:21
reisiopoee: well I don't remember how many partitions Windows uses anymore, but it shouldn't be more than 3, so you shouldn't have to worry about primary vs not06:21
reisiopoee: probably :)06:21
reisiopoee: #windows would know for sure06:21
floatingrainAll I need to sabotage is my SSH privat ekeys06:21
floatingrainI *need* the ssh private keys :/06:21
reisiofloatingrain: so are they not in /dev/mapper ?06:22
floatingrainreisio, /dev/mapper just has control which I don't know to do what with06:22
floatingrainit just has a file control but it's not a file and it's not a directory ??06:22
poeereisio, if worse comes to worse, I can have dell come in and reinstall it for me :D06:22
Flannelfloatingrain: Oh, this is a liveCD type thing?06:22
floatingrainYeah, I'm on a liveUSB to recover my Ubuntu installation06:22
Flannelfloatingrain: You'll need to install lvm tools and bring up your logical volumes semi-manually.  It's not difficult.  Let me find you a link.06:23
floatingrainFlannel, but I think the difficult part would be getting the boot loader working ?06:23
Flannelfloatingrain: Not if you're just reading the drives as data.06:23
Flannelfloatingrain: You're installing lvm "on" the LiveCD06:23
reisiofloatingrain: try this: lvchange -a y /dev/vg_somebody/lv_home06:24
reisiofloatingrain: and then this again: mount /dev/vg_somebody/lv_home /mnt/point06:24
floatingrainI MOUNTED06:24
reisioisn't lvm fun? :p06:24
floatingrainIt seems to be loading but I only see one directly, lost+found06:25

reisiokarab44: I think size, brand, and year aren't factors06:44
karab44So what do I need?06:44
maxbfloatingrain: So, if you're in Ubuntu, and you've got LVM recognizing your setup, and you've mounted it, can't you just copy anything you want elsewhere?06:44
Dr_Williskarab44:  i can do it with my Samsung TV's via upnp. or the various smart tv features06:44
floatingrainreisio, no, I see dm_crypt, a bunch of codecs, dm_multipaath, dm_mirror, dm_raid45, dm_log, dm_region_hash06:44
reisioDr_Willis: mmm, samsung06:44
reisiofloatingrain: can you sudo modprobe dm-mod?06:44
Dr_Williskarab44:  you have to see wht 'smart' features your tv has. if not.. get a roku, or a raspberry pi. or one of those chromecast dongles. (if you can find one)06:44
floatingrainreisio, empty output06:45

reisiofloatingrain: umount, fsck06:52
somsipdexterity: look at what is causing the load. Could be CPU bound (look for CPU > 100%) or could be disk-bound (look for %wa). Other indicators are in top too. Is swap being used (shudder)?06:52
karab44Dr_Willis: what feature, pls tell me more...06:52
reisiodexterity: apache is old, that's part of what's wrong06:53
somsipdexterity: is it running mySQL too?06:53
floatingrainreisio, YES06:53
Dr_Williskarab44:  no idea what intel calls it.. some sort of wireless hdmi feature on some of the their chipstes. can transmit to a monitor. or tv if it has the right hardware. theres also some sort of reciever box you can get for tvs06:53

Dr_Williscrazyhorse:  i think ive seen some android vms mentioned befor on the blog sites.06:55
somsipdexterity: I'd suggest that's the first thing to investigate as it will be a performance killer. But it can be the thin end of the wedge. Server tweaking is an ongoing process that goes on...and on...and on. Solving initial problems is usually not *too* onerous though06:55
Dr_Willistheres also the android x86 that works in vbox06:55

floatingrainall I want is to boot back into Ubuntu.07:01
ntzrmtthihu777no one, then?07:01
Dr_Willisfloatingrain:  i really have to wonder how you had wubi setup extra partions.. and a LVM.. i dident even think wubi could do that.07:01
xmetali have a working grub 2 now .. .been (just to give it a try) reading up on gfxboot07:01
Dr_Willisfloatingrain:  check where your /etc/fstab says home should be.. it could be on another partition. (that would be very weird also)07:02
reisiomost android apps are just frontends to websites or repackagings of existing apps :p07:02
floatingrainDr_Willis, I dunno! Is ther eany way I can make it skip wubi?07:02
floatingrainI'm booting through a liveUSB too btw07:02
Dr_Willisfloatingrain:   were YOU the one that installed this system? or someone else?07:02
floatingrainDr_Willis, yes, I installed it, like a year ago.07:02
Dr_Willisfloatingrain:  you booted a cd/usb and installed that way?  or ran some binary from inside windows?07:03
rjknight1apt-proxy gone. :(07:03
Dr_Willisfloatingrain:  beacuse wubi  dosent do the kind of setup you have.. of course neiother does a normal install.07:03
floatingrainDr_Willis, I have the wubi binary there. I think what I did was install through a liveusb through. Either way in C:/ubuntu/disks/root.dsk it's empty07:03
floatingrainMaybe the updates ASSUMED I'm using wubi just cause I have wubi binaries07:03
Dr_Willisfloatingrain:  but you Have a C:/ubuntu/disks/ ?07:03
floatingrain(on windows)07:03
floatingrainDr_Willis, Yes.07:03

floatingrainwell then I'm not sure what exactly broke it except I got a wubildr not found error.07:04
floatingrainand can't boot.07:04
Dr_Williswubi dosent use grub either  well  it chain loads it from windows i think.07:04
Dr_Willisfloatingrain:  somthing on windows deleted your wubi files sounds like.07:04
floatingrainDr_Willis, see, this is where it gets confusing. Dr_Wills: no07:04
floatingrain/dev/sda6 is ubuntu07:05
Dr_WillisYou said you had no wubi files.. but had the wubi directory.. and its booting and saying it cant find the wubildr. that would be the wubi bootloader i would think07:05
Dr_Willisunless of course you have had 2 differnt installs on the system at the same time07:05

floatingrainAll my partitions have wubildr copied there, and it still says not found.07:06

floatingrainI also have fedora07:07

floatingrainBTCOxygen, No, no anti virus.07:11
BTCOxygenWhich version of windows do you have?07:11
Dr_Willisfloatingrain:  perhaps wubildr is suposed to get read from that root.disk07:11
xmetalhmm back to researching gfxboot ... most of the tutorials are based on grub 1 to Gfxboot ... i have grub 207:11
BTCOxygenIIRC, Some Microsoft anti-virus tool comes pre-Installed on Win707:12
Dr_Williswindows -> wubi -> grabs the kernel and stuff from the root.disk07:12
Dr_Willisxmetal:  theres some grub2 variant that has all sorts of theme features. but i forget its name07:12
nikithamy major priority now is to  migration to linux and loss dependence of ms windows.... so i see linux and its dependent as one, i knew there are channels for differents tools , but i see linux as one.07:12
Dr_Willisxmetal:  also grub2 has some features. but i think they are normally disabled by default07:12
floatingrainok root.disk is empty I'll have to run chkdsk07:13

xmetaltrue ..i feel that Mint and Ubuntu are "close enough" that many questions could be answered in either channel, though they (each distro) have their own channel07:14
Dr_Willishard disk/file system curruption - disk gets scanned.. bad files get moved/deleted/moved to lost+foundor whever07:14

floatingrainBTCOxygen, i never ran chkdsk through I'm running it now07:16
floatingrainAnd I'm sure an anti virus will delete rather than empty a file07:16
BTCOxygenfloatingrain: Maybe the anti-virus cleaned the file for you.07:16
nikithai could get linux based oracle 11g it is 2gb of download and i do have setups of oracle 11g based of mswindows, so i still dependent of windows.07:17

wilee-nileeMoony22, You mean does  distro upgrade reinstall unity?07:39
Moony22Yes it07:40
Moony22The command do-release-upgrade07:40
Dr_Willisvas:  what software?07:40
wilee-nileeMoony22, Are you trying to fix a broken setup, a upgrade installs the version in that release.07:40
wilee-nileeif broken though that is not a good option.07:40
Moony22Wilee-nilee thank you07:41
Moony22Wait unity is broken but I want to upgrade anyway07:41
Dr_WillisMoony22:  so? :)  depends on how its broken07:41
wilee-nileeMoony22, I would fix your setup first you may have problems upgrades are from working systems.07:41
vasi got some educational software in a cd, since i m new to linux or ubuntu...i donno how to install it07:42
Moony22Wilee-nilee I think it is because I installed unity from the experimental certified ppa07:42
reisiovas: what's it called?07:42
wilee-nilee!ppapurge | moondog07:42
ubottumoondog: To 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.html07:42
Dr_Willisvas:  you are refering to some windows software?07:42

=== andrex|off is now known as andrex
wilee-nileeMoony22, really well if it were me I would not rely on a upgrade to fix all this, but thats me, are you backed up?07:44
minimecocooel: 'sudo rm /var/lib/apt/lists/*.*' will probably do. Then load the sources again... 'sudo apt-get update' ...07:44
wilee-nileeI never upgrade anyway, but fresh install07:44
Dr_Willisor try removeing all of unity and reinstalling it.. but that may be a bit complex07:44
vasno its a linux software..its some developed software for Linux,i donno name of it...they gave it in a unnamed cd?07:45
Moony22Wilee-nilee I have just fresh installed raring but I decided to get saucy now07:45
Dr_Willisvas:  look at the files on the cd. and hope they made it obvious what to do.. or included a readme file07:45
Moony22So it will still be like  a fresh install07:45
wilee-nileeMoony22, Its a development and on another channel, not supported here.07:46

skyroverr compdoc, my main question is tht does the ubuntu kernel on that usb has that bad ram patch?09:44
babinlonstongvo its worked morning and now its not working now09:45
streulmababinlonston: please give more information place09:45
compdocskyroverr, no idea. Ive never tried to map out bad ram. its best to buy good ram and forget about it09:45
streulmababinlonston: do, sudo apt-get install linux-headers-$(uname -r)09:45
skyroverrcompdoc, err, that wasn't the answer i was looking for, but thanks anyways.09:46

babinlonstonyes command in a terminal and hearder already have the latest version and not installed now09:48
blazemorebabinlonston: Does it work when you boot from an older kernel?09:49
babinlonstonNot tried09:49
streulmababinlonston: try, sudo apt-get install dkms09:49
blazemoreAlso, check there's not a hardware switch on the laptop to enable/disable wireless09:49
babinlonstonstreulma: installed09:50
streulmababinlonston: what it did? installed some things and probed dkms with kernel ?09:50
babinlonstonblazemore: its Enabled in Laptop09:50
blazemorebabinlonston: When you say it's not working, are there any networks showing up in network manager?09:51
skyroverrcompdoc, ddr2 modules r a scarce resource these days, hence i asked about the bad ram patch.. :) anyways, thanks.09:51
babinlonstonno just installed09:51
babinlonstonyes its showingup in network manager sir09:51
blazemorebabinlonston: So what happens when you try to connect to your network?09:51
bibi23I have 2 domains pointing to my server, I have apache installed and it listens to port 80, is it possible to redirect the second domain to another port BEFORE the request  is catched by apache?09:52
compdocskyroverr, I have a bunch of ddr2. maybe I can get rich selling them on ebay09:52
blazemorebibi23: You could use something like nginx09:52
ikoniabibi23: why do you want to do that ?09:52
blazemorebibi23: But you do need a web server to parse the HTTP header09:52
babinlonstonin All Settings there is Network in that if i click on ON under Wireless , its Switching back to off not stable09:52
gvobabinlonston: I assume you've powercycled at least once.09:52
skyroverrcompdoc, hahahaha!09:52
babinlonstonya its already 3 times did09:53
bibi23ikonia: I want to use node.js for the second website, there is no need for a webserver with node.js, the program directly listen to a specific port09:53
gvobabinlonston: I'd be tempted to remove network manager and install wicd.  That's what worked for my old compaq that wouldnt work on 12.0409:53
babinlonstonoh then what can i do to work09:54
bibi23ikonia: but I don't want the website to be accessed with "http://www.website.com:3000" for ex.09:54
ikoniabibi23: you could try re-directing it with iptables using the target domain as a pattern match09:54
gvobabinlonston: sorry?09:54
ikoniabibi23: could you not re-direct it internally within apache, eg: mod-rewrite, and a namebased virtual server ?09:54
babinlonstonHow can i make it to work09:54
gvobabinlonston: I don't understand the question.  I just removed network manager and installed wicd.09:55
gvobabinlonston: That may or may not fix your problem, but it did for me.09:56
babinlonstonok going to reformat09:56
babinlonstonthanks sir09:56
bibi23ikonia: yes I think so, as it's an unneeded step I wanted to do it before apache, is it complicated to do this with iptables?09:56
gvoreformat?  Drastic09:56
ikoniabibi23: not complicated, but you have to get the rule/pattern match clear09:57

gvostreulma: It worked last week.09:59

karlwblaze ill try that10:02
gvoSo is this the time line?  wifi working; update software; wifi not working  ??10:02
Tonyotry again:D10:02
bibi23ikonia: because this would do like 2 webservers chained, even though I don't have high traffic constraints it feels like it's  not optimal10:03
gvobabinlonston: So is this the time line? wifi working; update software; wifi not working ??10:03
ikoniabibi23: it's not two web servers chained, that's the whole point10:03
ikoniabibi23: it's one apache instance - one binary, one memorg segment10:03
Tonyoah ok10:03
ikoniabibi23: thats why I'm suggesting it's better to do it at the apache level rather than before as it's all internal, logged, smooth and clean10:03
Tonyooh ah10:03
Tonyoapache server?10:04
gvokarlw: sudo service lightdm restart as root??10:04
babinlonstongvo: i have updated using Ethernet not using wireless , While im checking Wireless at morning its worked fine , And now its not working10:05
Tonyohmm   net bios?10:05
blazemorebabinlonston: Did you try rebooting into an older kernel10:05
bibi23ikonia: ok you're right, I'll configure apache for this, apparently it's not recommanded to use iptables for this situation http://serverfault.com/questions/337380/how-to-redirect-request-for-specific-domain-to-a-specific-web-application-listen10:05
ikoniaTonyo: can you please stop just saying random workds.10:05
blazemoreTonyo: Do you have an Ubuntu support question?10:05
Tonyoikonia speah pl?10:05
babinlonstonblazemore: no10:05
ikoniabibi23: iptables will work fine - but, I do think apache will do this much better and cleaner10:05
gvobabinlonston: So did it work before you did the update and then stop working after the update?10:06
babinlonstonblazemore: ill try and let you know10:06
babinlonstongvo: yes10:06
bibi23ok thx ikonia10:06

blazemoremarinel: Can you run alsamixer from the terminal14:04

Moony22But like, in mint there was a lock screen with the time. I don't specifically want that, but at least my background showing would be nice.15:34
MonkeyDustMoony22  system settings > brightness and lock > screen turns off (yes/no)15:34
chumpy60osirisx11: can you explain your comment?15:34
chumpy60ActionParnsnip genii k1l_: thanks15:35
osirisx11chumpy60: personally i would not upgrade between those, i'd do a fresh install15:35
osirisx11i foresee many issues15:35
Moony22MonkeyDust, I dont see "screen turns off"15:35
osirisx11but this is #ubuntu so everyone here will tell you ubuntu upgrades perfectly and there's nothing to worry about15:35
BluesKajchumpy60, it's not that diffiult , make sure updatemanger has LTS turned on15:35
chumpy60osirisx11: you think it's better to just do a clean install?15:36
blazemoreosirisx11: As long as there's not piles of third-party software, PPAs etc, upgrades work perfectly...15:36
Moony22I see "Turn screen off when inactive for:" is that what you mean MonkeyDust?15:36
blazemoreobviously back up first, osirisx1115:36
holsteinosirisx11: upgrades can break things... and for just certain types of hardware, and not others15:36
SkizuHey I'm doing the following, ( mkdir -p $BACKUP_DIR/$DB_DIR && echo "- Made needed directories for $BACKUP_DIR/$DB_DIR" ) || echo "failed or something" 1<&2 I'm a bit lost as to what this does exactly, I believe it to be an override for the standard error?15:36
blazemorechumpy60: rather15:36
k1l_osirisx11: be helpfull when helping. your attitude doesnt quite fit in here.15:36
osirisx11i've always had issues with crufty config files15:36
blazemoreSkizu: Exactly15:36
holsteinchumpy60: i prefer a fresh install.. i think its faster, and the end result is more predictable15:37
MonkeyDustMoony22  Lock (on/off) > screen turns off (on/off)15:37
blazemoreI advocate a fresh install too if you can15:37
blazemoreBut upgrades work 99% of the time15:38
Skizublazemore: I'm doing this on a line below same thing apart from mkdir I'm doing mysqldump, this seems to be showing the default error rather than my defined one, mysqldump: Couldn't execute... Would you know what my issue maybe?15:38

Moony22wait MonkeyDust Do i need to set a screensaver15:45
Skizublazemore: Then maybe I am confused and have asked something wrong, lets say mysqldump errors like it is in this test scenario, what do I do to suppress the error message so that I can have a custom message?15:46
blazemoreSkizu: (command && "thing to do when sucessful") || "thing to do when fail"15:47

MoPacHello; I have a question about transfering environments from one Ubuntu computer to another when one is x64 and one is x86. (1) Will exporting a package list from the 64 to the 86 break anything? (2) Will moving settings files from /etc or /usr/share break anything? (3) Do the Ubuntu versions have to be the same?18:14
lonewulf85MoPac, x86 does not support x64 packages so yes going from x64 to x86 would mess things up, however going from x86 to x64 would not.18:16
MoPaclonewulf85: so the package list is specific to the architecture and the distro, right? The target comp wouldn't just find the equivalent package for its arch?18:17
tsongkiyey! it worked! thanks guyz i really appreciated it. well mounting exfat is be done manually. But it worked nice18:17

Ben64MoPac: it should work. the package list will mostly be stuff like "nmap" without the architecture on it18:18
lonewulf85MoPac, It might but I have only gone from x86 to x64 and it worked. I have not tried to go from x64 to x86 you could try aptoncd that might work.18:18

lonewulf85MoPac, I see it is meaning to transfer everything. Going from the x64 arch to the x86 one might cause instability in the os. but transferring of user files would not have any negative affect.18:25
MoPaclonewulf85: I'm more concerned about the list of packages that the target should install and about the settings files for the programs I already have -- like my Firefox extensions, KVIrc server configuration, Tor config file, etc18:27
MoPacaxxa: So when you log in, what do you see?18:27
MoPaclonewulf85: It seems like some of that lives in /home, some in /usr, and some in /etc, and I can't really make sense of what can be copied over and what can't18:28
lonewulf85MoPac, I believe that it all can be copied over.18:29

But what I'd really like to do is transfer all my program settings instead of having to set up the environment from scratch, without reinstalling Ubuntu18:32

MoPacomgeek: If you have a support question please feel free to ask it; someone here may be able to help you18:45
axxa@MoPac I have the option to enable it18:45
MoPacaxxa: Try enabling it and see if that helps. It may be an OpenGL problem, but first just see what happens when you try enabling Unity and all the stuff it depends on18:46
MoPacaxxa: (It'll tell you if such-and-such needs to be enabled at the same time)18:46
axxa@MoPac it's telling me it requires OpenGl and it gives me the option to enable it18:47

MonkeyDustlonewulf85  i don't use it myself, but check the preferences, there must be an option "minimize to panel" or so18:51
MoPacaxxa: are you on IRC on the computer you're trying to fix or on a different one?18:51
axxa@MoPac same computer18:52
MoPacaxxa: Okay, what I recommend is that if you let Unity enable anything that it wants to, including the keyboard bindings (so if it wants to disable something else that is in conflict, that's fine)18:52
MoPacaxxa: If it breaks your ability to get back to the IRC window, just restart and I'll try you on another idea.18:53

boggle_I currently have ubuntu installed as the only bootable os on my laptop.

histoigw3: is there anything displayed on screen when it hangs?20:21
histojohnrb: did you have server edition networking configured first?20:22

tomreyntomasm-: you can manually set the nameservers to use in your network manager connection profiles. so you could always set there, and optionally other (fixed) nameservers.20:28
igw3histo: nothing20:28
tomreyni guess the other option is not to use NM20:29
tomasm-tomreyn: well this is for wireless so I need the dns set from the dhcp client, so i can access the authentication webpage20:30
tomreyntomasm-: wireless with captive portal? you could possibly have two profiles, one to use before captive portal authentication and one for afterwards.20:31
tomasm-tomreyn: how? no idea.20:32
tomreyntomasm-: actually an even easier is probably to to set a fixed hostname pointing to the fixed ip address (if so) of the captive portal in your /etc/hosts but use as a nameserver in the NM profile.20:33
igw3reisio: hi20:33
tomasm-tomreyn: no this is public wireless in various networks.... the authentication page will vary by ip, depends20:34

HomelessSantaYes it's using the Quantal Stack on Ubuntu
k1lit will _not_ upgrade to 12.10 . the command to upgrade to 12.10 would be "do-release-upgrade".20:53
pmitrosMercX: I am following the instruction here: "http://askubuntu.com/questions/16988/how-do-i-install-ubuntu-to-a-usb-key-without-using-startup-disk-creator" But I run into this issue all the time. I'd like to pull up one GUI utility from the Ubuntu GUI to configure something. 70% of the time I can find the name of the commandline by Googling. 30% of the time, I'm lost.20:53
HomelessSantaOK, I'll try it otherwise if it does I'll more or less reinstall.20:53
BurrdyBy the way, has anyone solved the problem with Steam Big Picture Mode and the Mouse and game controllers not getting along with each other??  My mouse pointer freaks out every time I plugin my game controller.  Disabling the touchpad doesn't seem to do anything.20:54
HomelessSantaThis is what I get when I used that command k1l: The following packages have been kept back:20:54
HomelessSanta  linux-headers-generic-lts-quantal linux-image-generic-lts-quantal20:54
HomelessSanta0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 2 not upgraded.20:54
pmitrosMercX: Specifically, I'm trying format a USB stick, and it's a bit finicky about how it is formatted. I'd like to just check all of the boxes the same way they have in the guide, rather than manually formatting it and having a small chance of messing up (since if I do it wrong, most likely the failure will be that it doesn't boot -- and then it's very hard to figure out which step it failed on)20:54
Burrdyhow do you highlight someone's name again?  it's been a while since i used IRC20:54
HomelessSantaBurrdy, Use the tab key when you enter a few letters.20:55
HomelessSantaDepends on the IRC client you're using too.20:55
HomelessSantaYes, tab key should work.20:55
HomelessSantaType: Home than tab and see if it works.20:55
k1lHomelessSanta: if even a "sudo apt-get update &&sudo apt-get dist-upgrade" doesnt work its maybe because the depencies from that packages are not up to date (so far) on that mirror-server or there are still packages to be pushed to the server20:56
BurrdyHomelessSanta, testing20:56
HomelessSantaBurrdy, Works.20:56
pmitrosMercX: I just found 'gnome-disks' by Googling (nth link; the name changed), but if there's some file somewhere that maps Ubuntu menus to commands, it would save me hours with how often this comes up.20:56
Burrdyyay! =D20:56
HomelessSantak1l, I'll give that a try.20:56
MercXpmitros: if you are using know look at gparted to format and partition20:56
BurrdyHomelessSanta, do you play Steam games in Big Picture Mode?20:57
HomelessSantak1l, To no luck the command still doesn't solve the issue oh boy what a day.20:57
k1lHomelessSanta: then just give the servers and devs some time to fix it20:57
HomelessSantaBurrdy, Never tried to my lack of SSD space keeps me from doing much only an 80GB SSD don't know why I opted for it.20:57
HomelessSantak1l, No doubt will do.20:57
MercXpmitros: not sure if this would work but you could just dd the iso right to the usb stick?20:57
HomelessSantaBurrdy, Pure Ubuntu on this.20:58
pmitrosMercX: I can figure out this specific instance of the problem. The general problem is I'd like to know how to go from a name in an Ubuntu menu to a filename I can use on the command line.20:58
HomelessSantaI'ma see if there is a workaround either way k1l just in case.20:58

Sten_imark: "chmod o-x /"21:05
imarkSten_: which file21:05
lmnsqshrwell since you didn't do it recursively I suppose you only have to chmod the folders in / without their subdirectories, Sten_21:05

lmnsqshrSten_, I will21:08
Sten_so if i do ls -All21:09
Sten_there should be no x at the end, right?21:09

ShapeShifter499hi again21:15
lmnsqshrSten_, If you did o-x it overwrites every other permission of the file/directory so you need to set the correct permissions for each file in /21:16
ShapeShifter499so I have a vga to rca adapter and it doesn't seem to be recognized on any systems I have running ubuntu, on the netbook I tried it will make a buzzing noise on the tv when I attempt to "randr" a connection or use the "detect displays" option in system settings, any ideas?   could I force a vga output?21:17

Sten_lmnsqshr: and then?21:29
Sten_lmnsqshr: i did no recursive21:29
lmnsqshrSten_, I reinstalled my system21:29

lmnsqshrSten_, I'm glad it worked so easily for you =)21:37
ActionParsnipvivekananda: openprinting.org21:37
Sten_lmnsqshr: well, i am thinking bout the securtiy now21:38
Sten_lmnsqshr: how it was that easy to break into the system21:38
Sten_lmnsqshr: however, physical accesss21:38
tomreynMercX: if you are referring to the links text browser, you'd either user keyboard navigation or gpm21:39
lmnsqshrSten_, you mean with the recovery thing?21:40
tomreyn* text-based web browser21:40
MercXI am using the keyboard however I cannot hit a button21:40
Sten_lmnsqshr: yea21:40
tomreynMercX: i think you hit space21:40
VivekanandaActionParsnip: is that a channel ?21:40
[Gentoo]MercX: you have to press enter and scroll through with up / down21:40
lmnsqshrSten_, Perhaps you want to consider turning the recovery mode off21:41
[Gentoo]sometimes you have to scroll down the bottom to get back to the top21:41
lmnsqshrSten_, but then again you couldn't solve such problems easily21:41
ActionParsnipvivekananda: its a site reporting if certain printers wotk etc21:41
Sten_lmnsqshr: true true21:41
lmnsqshrSten_, you from germany?21:41
ActionParsnipvivekananda: irc channels start with a hash21:41
MercXhmm, maybe it is a javascript button21:41
Sten_lmnsqshr: aye21:41
Sten_lmnsqshr: it is probably the single user kernel mode21:42
lmnsqshrSten_, you shouldn't have access to a shell in the single user mode21:42
lmnsqshrwithout the root password21:42
Sten_lmnsqshr: well, in ubuntu root user has no password21:43
Sten_lmnsqshr: everything is managed via sudoers, the root itself can not log on21:43
Sten_but with physical access you can patch the /etc/shadow flie21:44
Sten_and hijack the system21:44
Sten_i need to encrypt my hdd21:44
lmnsqshrSten_, with pyshical access you can do much more :p21:44

lmnsqshrSten_, http://www.netzwelt.de/alternative-zu/4243-truecrypt.html21:45
VivekanandaActionParsnip: yep I know but I hoped there is an irc channel with similar name to get help21:45
tomreynSten_: you need to reinstall for full disk encryption21:45
Sten_i may need to encrypt only /homes/sten21:46
beanimo full disk encryption is overly paranoid21:46
ActionParsnipvivekananda: why do you need a channel? that lists all the printers contributed and if they work or not. How does a channel give anything over that well known compiled list exactly?21:46
ActionParsnipbean: causes headaches too21:46

bluefox83was that kanji? O.o22:56
dajepphave a dell laptop Latitude D620 that I just installed Ubuntu 13.04 on.  I can't see any wiFi networks. It worked fine with windows.  Any suggestions?22:56
Sikbluefox83: yes (kanji characters come from Chinese)22:56
juansf111Thank you very much. Here is the deal. I Just installe windows again in my pc (windows 7) . I have a 500gb  hard drive, so I created a partition of 250 gb while installing windows. After  finishing installing it, I Intalled Ubuntu. I used the option "Install Allongside windows", and it already finished...22:56
bluefox83Sik: but don't always mean the same things, i am told...22:56
juansf111My question is if it installed in the same partition than windows, or in the free space...22:56
bluefox83dajepp: uh...make sure there aren't any onboard buttons on the laptop that turn wifi off...22:57
bluefox83juansf111: in the free space22:57
bluefox83my wife's old latitude used to have a key combination that turned wifi on, that stupid fn button and another one along the top...you might want to look for that dajepp22:58
Pudgejuansf111: u can check it by checking your disk usage22:59
bluefox83my mother-in-law called me up crying her eyes out one time because she couldn't get wifi to work on her latitude (also running ubuntu) and i had to go over to fix it...took me 4 seconds to figure out and fix >.>22:59
namoraany way I can perform an offline kernel upgrade? offline as in, without booting the OS. from Windows/OS X by mounting the linux partition, in other words.23:00
bluefox83her neighbor who swore was a "tech genius, and computer professional" couldn't figure it out after 2 hours though...lol23:00
harveyb144Any wired nic gurus around?23:00
MonkeyDustbluefox83  that's nice, but keep the channel clear for support, please23:00
bluefox83namora: why would you want to do that!?!23:00
namorabluefox83: can't boot Ubuntu23:00
bluefox83namora: why not? i seem to have missed that O.o23:01
namoranamora: can't even get to GRUB to boot it.23:01
Pudgenamora: what u need is to fix your grub, not the kernel23:01
namorabluefox83: oh that was the first thing I wrote in IRC xD23:01
namoraPudge: well, i don't really want grub at all23:01
bluefox83namora: lol, sorry i'm in irssi and things go by fast >.>23:01
namorabasically I'm trying to set up an EFISTUB boot23:01
bluefox83namora: well then you will have to install lilo?23:01
Pudgenamora: in that case u have to edit your windows's boot.ini23:02
namorathe problem is EFISTUB support only landed in kernel 3.3 and i'm on precise (3.2)23:02
namoraPudge: I'm actually on OS X23:02
namoraor a mac, rather.23:02
dajepp_Anyone know how to make my dell wireless card work with Ubuntu 13.04?23:02
bluefox83well, what does your mac use as the boot loader? O.o23:02
Pudgenamora: so lilo is ur choice23:02
bluefox83dajepp: did you look for the wifi button like i suggested?23:03
namoraPudge: EFISTUB is my choice. I want to boot direct from EFI.23:03
namorabluefox83: rEFInd23:03
Pudgenamora: ofcoz u can, but u have to add ur ubuntu boot information into it23:03
namorabut it's a boot manager, not really a boot loader23:03
namoraPudge: I can boot the kernel directly from the EFI without a dedicated boot loader23:04
namorathe problem is I need to upgrade the kernel to do so, and I can't boot it at all right now because I borked my partition scheme23:04
gordonjcpnamora: I thoroughly recommend refind ;-)23:05
nocturnal_got no sound23:05
namoragordonjcp: i love rEFInd.  following this: http://www.rodsbooks.com/ubuntu-efi/23:05
nocturnal_im using external speakers23:05
KalelI had installed the new kernel irc, later, the new amd beta driver. Well, The unity doesn't start now!23:05
harveyb14412.04 old gateway with two nic's. Both work in windoze, eth0 says cable is disconnected. Anyone have any ideas what to try?23:06
reisiodid you try reconnecting the cable?23:06
gordonjcpnamora: it should work okay.  I used exactly that page to help me set up 12.10 on a Macbook 3,123:06
SikRepeating: trying to use apt-get tells me that /var/lib/apt/lists/lock and /var/lib/dpkg/lock are locked (even after rebooting), and that's effectively locking me out of apt-get and dpkg. Does anybody know how to unlock those files?23:07
harveyb144Cable never disconnected! Windoze it works, 12.04 says its disconnected.23:07
NanduXSik are you using 'sudo apt-get...'?23:07
Pudgenamora: It can boot ur ubuntu, just need some config23:07
reisioharveyb144: what does lspci | grep -i net say you've got?23:07
nocturnal_I got no sound23:07
nocturnal_what to do23:07
namoragordonjcp: oh really? that's excellent. did you/do you use FileVault?23:08
namoragordonjcp: I'm trying to get the whole thing set up with full disk encryption23:08
gordonjcpnamora: no, what's filevault?23:08
KalelThat is the new installed kernel 3.11.0-031100rc6-generic23:08
namoragordonjcp: OS X's built in full-disk encryption system23:08
SikNanduX: ...I should have known better ._.' (for some reason I thought it was being locked out because the update manager halted halfway through an update)23:08
Pudgenocturnal_: open ur terminal, try command "alsamixer" and see what u get23:09
harveyb144reisio eth0 (bad one) says Macronix, .. MX987x5 (rev 25)..23:09
SikAlso, Anthy is broken, I can't type Japanese characters without the system locking up. First updating the packages to make sure that doesn't fix it.23:09
gordonjcpnamora: no, I think full disk encryption is the most apocalyptically retarded idea in the whole field of computing23:09
Pudgegordonjcp: lol23:09
gordonjcpnamora: it's slow and it's guaranteed to lose you some data23:10
namoragordonjcp: are you serious?23:10
namorathe performance hit is 0-5%23:10
gordonjcpyou couldn't pay me to cripple my disk performance with that pointless cack23:10
reisioharveyb144: anything else?23:10
namorait has absolutely no perceptible performance hit23:10
gordonjcpnamora: yup, that makes it unusable23:10
gordonjcpdisks are already far too slow23:11
namoragordonjcp: well I can tell you I see absolutely zero performance hit running it on my SSD23:11
reisiodisks keep getting faster, and processors have specific instruction sets for encryption these days23:11
namorabecause of AES-NI23:11
moondoggordonjcp: good for removable backup drives though no?23:11
gordonjcpmoondog: nope23:11
namoraexactly, reisio.23:11
gordonjcpmoondog: never, ever back up onto an encrypted drive23:11
reisioplus, it doesn't really matter if you actually need encryption23:11
Pudgegordonjcp: u can hate it but u can't deny other's work23:11
reisioany hit will be worth it23:11
nocturnal_now what23:11
moondoggordonjcp: why?23:11
nocturnal_there no volumes that are below half23:12
gordonjcpmoondog: well, do, but back up onto an unencrypted drive too23:12
Pudgenocturnal_: see some bars that can modify ur volume?23:12
gordonjcpmoondog: if you have a single bad sector on the disk, if it begins to fail, you've lost *everything*23:12
harveyb144reisio 01:00.0 Ethernet controller: Macronix, Inc. [MXIC] MX987x5 (rev 25) (end of line: next line describes eth1 card )23:12
moondogthanks for the info23:12
reisioharveyb144: and eth1 is irrelevant for some reason?23:12
namorafirst of all, no you wouldn't. and second of all, even if it did break completely, you'd just restore from a backup23:13
nocturnal_the bars dont seem to do aynthing23:13
harveyb144reisio eth1 works just fine; trying to get eth0 working as well (two networks here)23:13
moondogI was just thinking storing my external hard drive backup in my desk at work was a tad risky without encryption23:13
nocturnal_I can highlight it like text23:14
gordonjcpnamora: yes, you would, because the entire volume has to be readable to decrypt it23:14
gordonjcpnamora: and if the drive is beginning to fail, it won't be entirely readable23:14
namoragordonjcp: i don't think you understand how AES-XTS works, which is the specific implementation i'm referring to23:14
gordonjcpthe whole thing is pointless, anyway23:14
gordonjcpno-one cares enough about you to want to read your disk23:14
reisioharveyb144: lspci -nn | grep -i net23:14
namorawell that's a completely separate point23:15
nocturnal_it was at 47 perfect the master was23:15
nocturnal_I moved it up still no sound23:15
bluefox83hey, those of you that were trying to help me move data from one drive to another last night...i found a laptop hard drive that has enough space...problem is there is no appropriate type of power plug for it!23:15
daftykinsis it molex or SATA?23:15
reisiobluefox83: use your desktop23:15
bluefox83reisio: that's what i mean. i can't plug it into the desktop because there's no power plugin...it's some wierd thing that looks a little like the sata connector, but it's like an inch and a half long O.o23:16
bluefox83i don't have anything in my desktop that hooks to that :(23:16
reisiobluefox83: plug the drive that's already in the laptop into the desktop23:16
geomyidae_Can I remotely wake up the kscreenlocker from an SSH session? thanks.23:16
reisiogeomyidae_: probably, see if it has a man page23:17
bluefox83reisio: ...yeah i just said i can't do that23:17
reisiobluefox83: why not?23:17
bluefox83sata connector wont power the drive by itself will it?23:17
harveyb144reisio 01:00.0 Ethernet controller [0200]: Macronix, Inc. [MXIC] MX987x5 [10d9:0531] (rev 25)   (then line for eth0)23:17
reisiobluefox83: doesn't need to23:17
reisiobluefox83: you have power cables in the desktop already23:17
bluefox83there aren't any cables on the laptop23:17
bluefox83those cables wont fit the drive...i checked D:23:18
reisiothe laptop has nothing to do with connecting a drive to the desktop :)23:18
bluefox83i know that23:18
bluefox83the drive is weird23:18
reisiobluefox83: so they're pata and the desktop is sata?23:18
bluefox83uh..i guess so O.o23:18
bluefox83holdon let me grab the drive real fast23:18
reisioharveyb144: presumably you meant 'then line for ethONE' ?23:19
nocturnal_ok fixed it23:19
harveyb144reisio yep, sorry..23:20
reisioharveyb144: lsmod | grep -i tulip23:20
geomyidae_reisio: I literally can't figure out what to man for. They've removed kscreensaver and kscreenlover. I think it's kxsrun and kxsconfig but I haven't found anything useful related to either of those yet.23:20
bluefox83reisio: correct me if i'm wrong here, but an sata connector doesn't also power the drive...right?23:21
harveyb144reisio tulip  52515 023:21
reisiogeomyidae_: you could try DISPLAY=:0 xscreensaver-command -deactivate23:21
reisiobluefox83: not IME :)23:21
reisiobluefox83: but it needn't, because your desktop has power23:21
reisioand so does your laptop23:21
* bluefox83 hasn't got the foggiest notion what that mean23:22
reisioin my experience23:22
bluefox83reisio: yes, but i can't hook it into both...because that laptop is retarded in it's construction >.>23:22
reisioyou can't hook what into both of what?23:22
reisioharveyb144: ok, I'm guessing it's just a simple misconfiguration then23:23
bluefox83i can't hook the drive into the laptop for power and the desktop for data23:23
bluefox83wont fit :(23:23
bluefox83it's a hitachi drive made for gateway...23:23
harveyb144reisio any tips greatly appreciated. i have tried setting static ip and setting ipv6 to "ignore" so far.23:24
bekksbluefox83: what does "made for gateway" mean?23:24
bluefox83nevermind >.>23:24
bluefox83this is a whole lotta dancing around for nothing...23:24
reisiobluefox83: it's probably just a shell, if anything23:25
bluefox83reisio: yeah...don't worry about it, just believe me when i say it's not physically feasable23:25
reisioI don't, but I believe you won't bother :)23:26
reisiodid you abort the network transfer?23:26
bluefox83i have another drive that it's feasible with but it's only 80gb :(23:26
bluefox83reisio: no...i keep getting errors about invalid argument. but most of the files are transfering23:27
bluefox83still >.>23:27
reisiooh, using what command?23:27
bluefox83drag and freaking drop over smb >.>23:27
bluefox83because rsync kept failing completely23:27
bluefox83so yeah...this is getting nuts23:28
reisiorsync stopped running?23:28
bluefox83i should find a bunch of old 80g drives and just copy what i can over >.>23:28
bluefox83uh..no it failed23:28
reisiojust go to the store and get the most-capacity-for-price external eSATA/USB3/2 hard drive you can, you'll need the storage eventually23:29
bluefox83yep that's what i said..23:29
reisioso the process stopped?23:29
bluefox83it said something about it not being allowed23:29
GiGaHuRtZIdleOne: Wanna do something more?23:29

SikRebooted, I still can't use Anthy. Ctrl+Space does nothing, switching to Anthy from the menu does nothing either. If I select it twice it does select Anthy, but it behaves like normal input instead of Japanese input. Help?23:30
bluefox83usr13: yeah i've been here plenty of times...i also know that sometimes those solutions don't work...which is what happened to me23:31
reisioI wouldn't use a GUI to transfer 230GB if you paid me23:31
bluefox83well i'm picking and choosing instead of just cramming the whole thing23:31
usr13bluefox83: If all you can say is that it is hopeless and there is no solution, then it *is* hopless.23:32
* daftykins puts £100 in front of reisio 23:32
reisiodaftykins: thanks :)23:32
daftykinsno no, you have to copy 230GB with a GUI first.23:32
reisiodaftykins: oh, pass23:32

ShapeShifter499I came across the "ubuntu is spyware" argument today, how do you guys feel about this?23:33

ShapeShifter499actually I'll post that question in #ubuntu-discuss23:34
