Eduard_MunteanuIt's also funny how debootstrap completely ignores you're missing the key, unless you notice the warning.00:00
dimitry7I erased it because I had no choise, apt-get nor aptitude worked00:00
mathfreakiampoz: I suppose that means you already ran sudo apt-get update and sudo apt-get upgrade, then?00:00
mathfreakiampoz: Okay. before we go on to check video drivers, can you tell me what happens when you press ctrl+alt+F7? Feel free to try ctrl+alt+F8/F6 as well00:01
iampozalthough at the very end I get this: "[1]+  Stopped                 sudo apt-get update"00:01

reisioroot_gnewsense_o: not really following you, but if you built something related to a kernel, it exists in a file system somewhere03:45
reisioroot_gnewsense_o: you need only copy it from there to where you want it03:45
root_gnewsense_odoes ubuntu have recovery mode ?03:45

ubottuTo start your system in text-only mode append 'text' (without the quotes) to the kernel line in the grub menu. You can access the grub menu by pressing Esc (Grub legacy) or Shift (Grub2) during boot. For more info see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BootOptions#Text%20Mode03:59

root_gnewsense_oI found ubuntu slow and greedy04:03
holsteinroot_gnewsense_o: this is the ubuntu support channel.. you are free to compare the 2.. ubuntu has other official versions, such as lubuntu, that are "lighter".. ubuntu is not intended to be light04:04
ubottulubuntu is Ubuntu with LXDE instead of !GNOME as desktop environment, which makes it extremely lightweight. See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Lubuntu - /join #lubuntu for lubuntu support.04:05
root_gnewsense_ois gnewsense new ? I'm not biased, yet04:05
holsteinroot_gnewsense_o: its just not supported here, friend..04:06
root_gnewsense_onot allow to chat about anyhing other ?04:06
holsteinroot_gnewsense_o: you are mentioning an OS that is not supported, or discussed here. .you can try and instigate a discussion about it in the channel i suggested. otherwise, this is ubuntu support04:06

anton02oh i didnt see remount04:18
anton02R0b01: are u too lazy to reset the admin password?04:19
holsteinanton02: i think R0b0t1 is going to fix it..04:20
anton02XReaper: lolarch04:20
R0b0t1anton02, I can't, because my permissions on /etc are wrong, which prevents me from sudoing, which prevents me from changing the permissions on /etc04:20
R0b0t1you see my dilemma04:20
holsteinR0b0t1: you recover the password with the link i gave..04:21
anton02how did etc permissions get changed04:21

DamianDarccan anyone help me im having problems booting into ubuntu after a fresh install04:36
DamianDarcthe system hangs on a black screen with a flashing white underscore04:37
ubottuA common kernel (boot)parameter is nomodeset, which is needed for some graphic cards that otherwise boot into a black screen or show corrupted splash screen. See http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1613132 on how to use this parameter04:37
DamianDarcthanks ill let you know the results in a but04:37
momodithere always is a title bar on chromium, how can I make it disappear. I'm using Xubuntu 13.04.04:38
wilee-nileemomodi, I believe it is in the preferences04:39
holsteinmomodi: you can try right click on the window decoration and "use system title bar and borders".. or yeah, i think its in the menu somewhere too04:39
apb1963_Ubuntu Packages - For whatever reason, Ubuntu has stopped updating Kismet in their repositories.04:39
DamianDarcthe thing about this is it seem to require me to get to the grub boot loader, my system won't even get to that04:40
DamianDarcit works fine on the live cd though04:40
wilee-nileeDamianDarc, You using the shift key to show grub?04:40
holsteinapb1963_: they dont just roll.. you get security updates.. i think firefox tries to roll now but thats it AFAIK..04:40
momodiI searched a lot about this, finally I found a software "maximus" can do this, but maximus do this on my all apps, I only want this works on chromium04:40
holsteinmomodi: you tried unticking the box?04:41
DamianDarcyes grub won't event load04:41
wilee-nileerollimg release04:41
DamianDarcim using 13.0404:41
wilee-nileeDamianDarc, Have you modified grub and are you pressing that key as soon as you power on?04:41
holsteinapb1963_: rolling releases just get new packages as they come and are released.. ubuntu is more of a frozen in time kind of thing04:41
apb1963_ok, that makes sense holstein04:42
holsteinDamianDarc: i would test the hardware at that point.. did you get a live desktop to come up?04:42
DamianDarcI have not modified grub at all ys im pressing this key from when it turns on.  This is after a fresh install and there were no errors in the install04:42
apb1963_So is that why kismet isn't being updated?04:42
holsteinapb1963_: thats what im suggesting that only security updates to that version will come in, as for all packages04:43
wilee-nileeDamianDarc, Did you install with a usb, and is there more than one HD?04:43
holsteinapb1963_: folks add ppa's, which are unsupported officially, for newer packages04:43
DamianDarcthere are 2 Hard drives, a sata an an IDE one I installe using a disk04:43

DamianDarcAHA! I booted from seond hard drive and it worked04:46
apb1963_so... is there a recommendation for a wireless package?  I don't have any particular objective in mind other than to see what's out on the airwaves I guess?  Make sure my card is working, learn a little maybe.  Nothing too intense, just some light spying I guess maybe?  One thing for sure, I'd like to see what my own router is putting out.04:47
holsteinapb1963_: no04:47
DamianDarcThank so much04:47
reisiolilcyber: playing with pipelight for netflix04:47
holsteinapb1963_: you can try something like backtrack or kali which are not supported here and ot04:47
wilee-nileeDamianDarc, Cool you can make sure that the drive it is on is the has grub is inn its mbr with sudo grub-install /dev/sdX  X is that HD's letter like sda or sdb .04:48
wilee-nileejust run a sudo update-grub afterward04:48
apb1963_I took a quick look at iwconfig and iwspy... said "hmm..."  and started poking around for info on the net.... TMI... nothing stuck out at me.04:49
jorvisI just did a fresh install of Ubuntu with Gnome3 and things were working great until I had to deal with NetworkManager - When I click it and then choose "Network Settings" I wait and nothing happens at all.  Nothing ever comes up.  Is there a lot somewhere I should be checking?04:49
wilee-nileejorvis, This the gnome 3 version I forget the name or an additional desktop?04:50
jorviswilee-nilee:  not sure of the distinction.  I just didn't like Unity and followed a tutorial to install gnome-shell instead04:51
apb1963_nah, those are penetration tools.. I guess I'm looking for more of a discovery tool04:52
apb1963_I want the discovery channel :)04:52
wilee-nileejorvis, Not sure why its not showing the network settings, however the secondary desktop will use what you have done in the unity desktop for example a autologin to wifi,.04:52
holsteinapb1963_: those tools will be at those resources as well, and ot and unsupported here04:52
lilcyberdiscovery channel is awesome04:52
wilee-nileejorvis, Can I see that tutorial?04:53
jorviswilee-nilee: Yeah, it's autoconnecting my wireless just fine.  I just need to set up VPN now04:53
apb1963_you mean discovery is included in the packages?04:53
apb1963_so what's supported?04:53

apb1963_and see if my card is doing what it's supposed to be doing04:56
holsteinapb1963_: and, none of that is a feature of ubuntu, so its OT here, and not supported, but, you should explore kali if interested04:56
apb1963_ok, thank you04:56
holsteinapb1963_: you are online.. thats what the manufacterer said it would do04:56
wilee-nileejorvis, Only problem is that is a ppa, officially not supported here, the gnome shell 3.6 is in the repos. If you need to remove it use ppapurge04:56

wilee-nileejorvis, Does not mean no one will help, I'm just not sure of the fix is all.04:57
wilee-nileejorvis, I tried the 3.8 a while back and found some problems, however 13.10 has it.04:58
wilee-nileeso there is a development in the repos fpr 13.10, not sure on it in 13.04 is all now jorvis04:59
jorviswilee-nilee: Ok, thanks.  I'll keep hunting then04:59
wilee-nileejorvis, Cool04:59
jorviswilee-nilee: Some logging seems to be found via this command, but nothing is written there when I try to open network settings: grep -i networkmanager /var/log/syslog05:01

caf4926If I format a External USB HD to ext4, it's no longer writeable, how can I make it writeable to whatever device I connect it to?05:05

reisioalso you might want to put a little FAT or NTFS partition on it, so if it's plugged into a Windows box, Windows doesn't immediately ask the user if they want to format it05:07
wilee-nileecaf4926, check the others advice as well.05:07
lotuspsychjewill it be readable for mcs too like this?05:07
reisiowell, neither Windows nor Mac OS support ext out of the box, AFAIK05:08

reisiooh wait, Lion has native ext support05:08
reisioso just Windows won't05:08
caf4926I don't use windows05:08
reisiobut seriously, if you plug an ext drive into Windows, it will ask immediately if you want to FORMAT IT05:08
lotuspsychjereisio: how about other linux Os that doesnt use ext4?05:09
reisioso either keep an eye on your portable drives, or include at least one tiny partition that Windows understands05:09
reisiolotuspsychje: will assume it's ext2/305:09

schmockI have a little problem: I installed ubuntu 12.04 LTS on my laptop in dual boot mode together with win 7. All worked fine. I updated 12.04 to 12.10 and after that, whenever I was launching ubuntu, it crashed shortly after it started loading ubuntu.06:03

lotuspsychjescx: or man teamspeak?06:04
lotuspsychjeschmock: did you try update-grub ?06:04
scxlotuspsychje: yes: $ grep -E "ts.?client" ~/.*06:05
nowayrideschmock what was the crash output? Ubuntu can be finicky on updates sometimes06:05
nowayrideOr what stage did it crash06:05
scxlotuspsychje: i dont have man for teamspeak - i installed it from *.tar.* to /opt/06:05
schmocklotuspsychje: I am quite new to this, where can I access it? In advanced options for ubuntu in the boot selector screen?06:05
lotuspsychjescx: are you on ubuntu server?06:06
schmocknowayride: I selected ubuntu in the bootloader, then the screen turned ubuntu violet and then there was some sort of graphically visible crash (about 5 secs in) and then everything was pitch black and nothing happening for quite a while.06:07
lotuspsychjeschmock: in terminal: sudo update-grub and reboot, if it crashes, try a recovery/failsafeX from grub06:07
scxok, i found problem: there was symbolic link tsclient to team speak client and i have installed tsclient (terminal server client, not ts3client)06:08
nowayrideschmock: This is server? When grub is starting hit a, it will bring you to an edit line, add nosplash and remove quiet if present, should show you boot sequence06:09
scxlotuspsychje: ^^06:09
lotuspsychje!yay | scx06:09
ubottuscx: Glad you made it! :-)06:09
nowayrideIt is nosplash and remove quiet right? That's off the top of my head and the servers I deal with don't use plymouth or whatever06:09
scxanyway, thanks for help06:10
lotuspsychjenowayride: you mean nomodeset?06:10
nowayrideIsn't that for X11?06:10
lotuspsychjenowayride: or removing 'quiet splash' to see text boot?06:10
stobixhi! Is there a way to make X spew out the (automagic) config it has right now? I'd like to make a base xorg.conf with the stuff it imagines I have, and build from there.06:10
nowayrideMaybe that's it06:10
nowayrideX -configure?06:11
ubottuTo start your system in text-only mode append 'text' (without the quotes) to the kernel line in the grub menu. You can access the grub menu by pressing Esc (Grub legacy) or Shift (Grub2) during boot. For more info see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BootOptions#Text%20Mode06:11
schmocklotuspsyche: nowayride: It's for desktop (running on laptop). With my skills I think lotus' approach seems feasible to me. nowayride's approach just seems a little over the top for me... ;) Either way: thanks a lot!06:13
lotuspsychjeschmok: good luck! mostly recovery from grub might work06:13
nowayrideschmock: it's the same place, just different options but yeah try to get a picture of where it fails if you need to hit up the chat again, more specific errors = more chance we know what might be wrong06:14
lotuspsychjeschmock: depending on what went wrong of course06:14
lotuspsychjeschmock: and even a better idea, single install ubuntu on your laptop and loose windows once and for good :p06:16
schmocklotuspsychje: nowayride: Alright. I'll give it a shot. If I come back here, I hope I will be able to provide something more specific as the logic behind more details = higher chance of success is something I do understand. :)06:16
lotuspsychjeschmock: good luck06:16
schmocklotuspsychje: I am not ready for that yet... ;) Also: so far I tried ubuntu only through wubi and it has been rather nervwrecking at times... And win 7 had proven to be a good security line to be able to do at least something with my laptop. :D06:17
lotuspsychjeschmock: i really recommend making an ubuntu live usb with diskcreator06:18
nowayrideschmock: also, 12.04 is pretty good bet for server BTW. If you need GUI stuff desktop is fine, but server 12.04 is LTS meaning it will be updated long after 12.10 and even 13.04 go out.06:19
lotuspsychjeschmock: ubuntu will be far more stable then your win7 and more secure06:19
nowayride^ Desktop for 12.10 and 13.04 and stuff06:19
schmocklotuspsychje: that's why I am still willing to give it another go :)06:20
nowayridelotuspsychje: Win 7 really isn't that bad on stability, well if you don't download crudware, but yeah schmock Ubuntu is nice and secure :)06:20
lotuspsychjeschmock: and if you come back in chat here we will help you around06:20

* Dr_Willis looks around.. 'its dead Jim!'06:41
nbubuntuhi , I read the release note , but I still can't understand technically on it.What is Enablement Stack means ? I saw a new roll out of 12.04.3 release today06:43
nbubuntuMay I know what's the difference Enablement Stack on kernel ?06:44
Dr_Willishttps://wiki.ubuntu.com/Kernel/LTSEnablementStack    This?06:46
Dr_WillisUpdated kernel and stuff to support new hardware on 12.04.X from what im reading.06:47
nbubuntuDr_Willis : which and what kind of new hardware needed it ? Since I plan to upgrade my pc06:49
nbubuntuDr_Willis : It doesn't list down which hardware required for the release06:49
caf4926ssh over the net ? I have it working over the LAN, what might I need to do to enable it over the net?06:50
lotuspsychje!ssh | caf492606:51
ubottucaf4926: SSH is the Secure SHell protocol, see: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SSH for client usage. PuTTY is an SSH client for Windows; see: http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/ for it's homepage. See also !scp (Secure CoPy) and !sshd (Secure SHell Daemon)06:51
nowayridecaf4926: if it's working over LAN and not internet, you probably need to set port forwarding on your router.06:51
caf4926nowayride: I figured. But how would I address the server06:52
nowayrideHow do you mean? You'd just access it from your WAN IP06:53
caf4926nowayride: let me clarify... I ask because I have a client who I visit for the first time on Monday and I want to get this clear in my head06:54
caf4926nowayride: I have a feeling it's going to matter that his ISP uses dynamic addresses06:55
nowayrideHis? No. The address you connect from doesn't matter, the address you connect to does06:56
nowayrideThe exception is if he has firewall rules for outbound traffic, but it's very unlikely he will be firewalling SSH to a server06:56
caf4926nowayride: His IP from his ISP is dynamic06:57
nowayridecaf4926: you are connecting from a computer via ssh TO a server?06:57
caf4926on his server06:57
nowayrideIs his server what's on the dynamic address?06:58
caf4926nowayride: yes06:58
nowayrideOkay so he's setting up a server on a dynamic address from his ISP, and wants people from other locations to connect to his dynamic IP from SSH?06:59
caf4926nowayride: :-) yes06:59
nbubuntuMay I know what's the difference Enablement Stack on kernel 12.04.3 vs 12.04 ? which new hardware required the new kernel ?06:59
nowayrideThat's generally not a good idea for reliability, but one option is he could use something like dyndns to keep a record of his IP, but generally you can't always rely on a home connection07:00
caf4926nowayride: this is what I figured07:00
caf4926nowayride: As I understand it, he has data processing running on the machine and needs to access it07:01
nowayrideDyndns is his best bet though, if the odd outage is acceptible. It seems like ISP IPs don't change around as much as they use to (I've had an IP for half a year at a time on TWC)07:01
nowayrideIt's not a guarantee but as long as he has an internet connection dyndns should keep the IP record updated07:02
caf4926nowayride: I did wonder if the data could be stored in a cloud for access07:03

ikoniaatomickitten: is there a mate package in the ubuntu repos ? I thought it was totally unsupported on ubuntu ?07:14
ikoniaatomickitten: and a segfault is the problem for sure, but what's causing the segfault is the key07:14
atomickittenI had to add some extra repository thing07:14
atomickittenI kinda doubt it has to do with my DE because it won't run from the command line either. Could be wrong though. Assuming you guys know it better than I do...07:14
ikoniaatomickitten: I suspect it's going to be that (as an easy explination) as VLC works fine with the supported desktop07:15
ikoniaand as mate is pretty much a dead codebase that people are trying to keep a alive07:15
ikoniaatomickitten: the command line.....just launches the gui07:15
atomickittenanother relevant piece of info is that I've run it from MATE a bazillion times before, but it stopped. I have no idea what changed07:15

atomickittenso what command should I be entering to test it?07:18
Berengarso guys, question: my ubuntu (12.04) doesn't boot on kernels newer than 3.5.0-36 anymore. now i noticed that for those newer kernels there isn't an initrd image when i run sudo update-grub . could this have something to do with it?07:18
ikoniaatomickitten have you tried cvlc which won't use any desktop interface07:18
lotuspsychjeatomickitten: i think what ikonia says makes sense, vlc should work out of the box on ubuntu07:18
ikoniaatomickitten: that way you can have at least a clue it's nothing to do with mate07:18
atomickittenI did try it, and it started some kind of other prompt07:19
ikoniaatomickitten: ok, so you then have an idea that vlc is working - but the displaying of vlc isn't07:19
atomickittenI'm guessing there's some VLC commands I type in there or something.07:19
atomickittensounds like it07:19
ikoniaatomickitten: which suggests an issue with the "visual" or "desktop" component07:20
ikoniaatomickitten: try it with a different DE and confirm it works/doesn't work there07:20
atomickittenbut it worked on MATE before. It worked up until really recently, but I don't know what changed that could have caused this07:20
lotuspsychjeatomickitten: anything in logs maybe?07:20
ikoniaatomickitten: because mate is a dead codebase that no-one is developing for, it's possible that an update to vlc broke it's compatability with the legacy code of mate07:20
ikoniaatomickitten: or a mate update, just had a bug/glitch in it, due to it being maintained by other people who may have made a mistake,07:21
nbubuntuMay I know what's the difference Enablement Stack on kernel 12.04.3 vs 12.04 ? which new hardware required the new kernel ?07:21
lotuspsychjeatomickitten: try #mate for any other vlc issues07:21
ikoniaeg: the function that is "gnome-2-support" the vlc developers may have dropped that function because gnome-2/mate is deae07:21

wilee-nileeyou need and external or place for the clone is all08:06
JohnC_wilee-nilee, oh ok08:07
stobixhm. fglrx seems to break my radeon card whenever it is (automagically?) installed. Can I tell the package managers not to touch it in any way?08:07
argoJohnC_, http://gparted.sourceforge.net/display-doc.php?name=moving-space-between-partitions08:08
wilee-nileeJohnC_, If you had the free space you could just copy paste it with gparted, but it sounds like thatis not an option.08:08
argoJohnC_, if u have GUI08:08
JohnC_wilee-nilee, yup, I dont have enough free space.08:09
JohnC_argo, ok.08:09
stobixRight now, some system seems to have installed fglrx for me again, which means that unless I remove it before restarting, I'm stuck with some "oops, we crashed your card" VESA driver.08:11
MosecoI have just installed Ubuntu 13.04 and when i restart after the installer finishes i get a message saying could not find bootable device, can anyone help with that?08:12
nowayrideMoseco: did you select "install boot loader on /dev/sda" ?08:13
wolffffMoseco,  are there any external storage devices connected to your computer while trying to boot?08:13
nowayrideOr Grub rather08:13
MosecoNo, just the ssd i installed the os on08:15
MosecoI had an empty ssd and i installed through a cd and i just clicked next through it08:15
wilee-nileeMoseco, You have more than one HD?08:15
MosecoI had a hd for windows and i have an older hard drive that i reformated and installed ubuntu on08:16
MosecoWhen i installed ubuntu i had only the 1 hd connected08:16
wilee-nileeMoseco, grub might have gone to the other HD's mbr, what windows release?08:16
wilee-nileeah one connected08:17
MosecoI didnt have that drive connected at the time08:17
wilee-nileeMoseco, You install with a usb?08:17

wilee-nileeMoseco, This a W8 dual boot?08:18
MosecoI have 2 HDs one for windows and a seperate for ubuntu, but i only had the ubuntu Hd connected during install08:19

MosecoFor UEFI boot, if im remember correctly i have the exclusive UEFI disabled08:21
MosecoBecause i had a problem with windows 7 boot earlier08:22
wilee-nileeMoseco, Yes I can tell, if you have a uefi setup the installs are different for that. That is to some extent true on the disable, however all the manufacturers have there own little versions and it is not that simpe.08:22

ljetibodid you use a shared folder, or do you have guest additions installed and then drag and drop option enabled?11:23
ljetibo(I'm presuming here that you too have a VM)11:24
tanveerljetibo, sorry it was external drive and i just copy paste11:24
linux|newbtanveer: pasted to where?11:26
andrea1x2Hello guys, are you interested in online betting? i have created this website for you http://bet40.site40.net/11:26
ljetibowell that's weird :D.... try copying something else (something small). Just copying from an usb device shouldn't be anyything problematic. You might have been careless and accidentaly pasted it to a folder you didn't see. You can try searching for it, but something tells me you already did.11:26
tanveeri pasted it in a drive which was mounted in W11:27
linux|newbtanveer: ls -l /locationYouPastedTo11:28
linux|newbtanveer: ls -al /locationYouPastedTo11:28

MonkeyDustborsuk  use a live cd, run gparted, delete the ubuntu partition11:37

MonkeyDustborsuk  because your BIOS has to 'boot from USB flash drive'11:40

borsukCould I break something when installing for the first time?11:41
MonkeyDustborsuk  then how would you install a new ubuntu?11:42
max64ljetibo .. it is 4 years old .. last time maintained was 2 years ago11:42
borsukMonkeyDust I don't like the current one for several reasons - i.e. I forgot to ncrypt the whole drive11:42
MonkeyDustborsuk  yes, but if you cant boot from USB, how did/will you install ubuntu?11:43
borsukI want a fresh start :)11:43
borsukIt worked then11:43
ljetibo@max64: what I can basically tell you is that overheating is rarely caused by software and it's almost always hardwares fault.11:43

ihreMy DIY NAS crashed this morning, and I could find the following in my logs: http://dpaste.com/1355022/ How can I identify the actual problem ?11:46
borsukMonkeyDust I booted from USB, it worked then. Now it seems to be broken11:46
ljetibomax64: sometimes. Depends on how clean your room is, if you dust often if you have long hair (trust me on that one, I have long hair and everytime I take it to get cleaned ~once a year they pull out 15m of my hair out of it11:46
MonkeyDustborsuk  what seems to be broken? the usb stick?11:47
borsukMonkeyDust Can't really tell. When I try to boot it, the old Ubuntu starts11:47
borsukMonkeyDust (and I set the BIOS to boot from USB)11:48
MonkeyDustborsuk  first find out what goes wrong, then repair it11:48
MonkeyDustborsuk  is the usb stick physically damaged?11:48
borsukMonkeyDust :D yeah, but how can I check what is broken? The usb disk seems to be alright.11:49
MonkeyDustborsuk  disk or stick?11:50
borsukMonkeyDust It seems like Ubuntu on USB "knows" that Ubuntu is already installed11:50

zizazihave a friend with a "windows dead" computer (AMD Athlon XP 1800+ 1.53 GHz, 512 MB RAM) .... tried lubuntu which works ok in live mode but crashes during install... how to proceed?11:51
lantiziazizazi, we'd need more information on the crash - but remember the live cd doesn't need the hdd to work - so if the hdd is faulty that's why the live cd works but installing doesn't11:52
ihrezizazi: I had the same yesterday, went to install the 13.04 mini.iso, and installed ubuntu-desktop afterwards11:52
lantiziazizazi, and a possibility for why windows doesn't work now11:52
zizazilantizia: windows works but is extremely slow11:53
X-Userhello, I am trying to install this https://launchpad.net/indicator-sysmonitor , better to download .deb file and install or adding a PPA and install via terminal?11:53
zizazilantizia: crash with lubuntu does not allow me to get info after; i get message saying i will be able to report bla bla but no it doesnt happen, i can only force shutdown manually11:54
nowayrideX-User: up to you, the PPA would keep it updated though11:54

lantiziai install my ubuntu every time using the mini.iso method - but i'm picky about what I want installed :)11:56
X-Usernowayride, the last update for that software was in 2012-06-30 , so I don't think that the developer is still active.11:56
lantizianamely MATE :P11:56
gordonjcpzizazi: "crashes during install" isn't terribly helpful.  What *exactly* happens?11:56
nowayrideX-User: some software can go a few years without update, but yeah .deb wouldn't be a bad idea for stuff like that11:56

rigo88than is it "safe" to use the 12.04 with 3.6.3?12:59
bekksrigo88: Officially, 12.04 does not ship with 3.6.312:59
mamedhello guys . after a long time i installed 11.04 to my computer . 12.04 is ok but a bit slow and consumes so much cpu(fan makes noise even though i cleaned it) but i cannot update the repositories12:59
bekksrigo88: So it is your choice.12:59
mameddid 11.04 repositories changed12:59
rigo88just because i think that the tevii s471 is only "supported" (so it is only recognised well) with 3.6.312:59
bekksmamed: 11.04 is unsupported due to EOL.13:00
OerHeksmamaed, 11.04 is EOL, repo's are down13:00
lotuspsychjemamed: what are your system specs?13:00
mamedbekks: i thought like that way . but i found that old-releases.ubuntu.com work but it didnot work for me13:00
ralphymamaed: can you upgrade to 13.04? Ubuntu made alot of speed improvements to Unity in that release13:00
rigo88i ever used the 12.04 with 3.6.3 for only xbmc.13:01
X-Usermamed, use 13.0413:01
mamedlotuspsychje: 32 bit asus laptop 2 gb ram13:01
lotuspsychjeralphy: true13:01
bekksrigo88: he would have to update to 11.10 first, which is unsupported too.13:01
mamed13.04 i bet it will be muh more slower than 12.0413:01
bekks!eolupgrade | mamed13:01
ubottumamed: End-Of-Life is the time when security updates and support for an Ubuntu release stop, see https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Releases for more information. Looking to upgrade from an EOL release? See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/EOLUpgrades13:01
mamedubottu: i know eol13:01
ubottumamed: I am only a bot, please don't think I'm intelligent :)13:01
OerHeksmamed wrong bet13:01
rigo88well i think since installing linux is not the most complicated thing in the world it would make sence to build a new clean system right? :)13:01
ralphymamed: nope13:01
mamedok guys why i escape from 12.04 is youtube issue i cannot watch youtube videos and this is not a flash problem13:02
rigo88meanwhile i get an em: possible missing firmware /lib/firmware/rtl_nic/rtl8106e-1.fw while upgrading.13:02
bekksmamed: Then which problem is it?13:02
lotuspsychjerigo88: a clean ubuntu would be nice indeed13:02
rigo88lotuspsychje: if i have problems, i always rebuild the system.. i like to mess with the stuff.. a hobby..13:03
mamedbekks: i installed debian 7.0 with xfce and without problem i was able to watch youtube vides13:03
bekksmamed: And why did you choose an unsupported version?13:03
mamedi usedto love it13:03
mamedalso for orta theme13:03
lotuspsychjerigo88: rebuild, meaning clean installs every time?13:03
bekksmamed: So how does that prove it wasnt a flash issue?13:03
mamedi think gnome 3 has some internal heaviness also13:03
ralphymamed: you have to tell us the specific problem that leads you to believe it is not a flash issue if you want help13:03
rigo88yep why not.. in fact i use linux only for xbmc and/or home server. the desktop pc runs w713:04
lotuspsychjerigo88: same here aswell, always latest ubuntu clean install x6413:04
mamedralphy: for example i was able to watch daily motion or any other video site but youtube13:04
bekksmamed: which does not prove it wasnt a flash issue.13:04
mamedhow about debian 7.013:04
bekksmamed: We dont care about debian.13:05
mamedbut ubuntu is debian based13:05
rigo88im stucked at 12.04 since it is a lts. but i read somewhere that there are conflicts with 13.10 & xbmc and/or with the ati driver...13:05
bekksmamed: Every car is based on Ford. Which doesnt make every car a Ford.13:05
mamedok when was 13.04 released13:05
bekksmamed: 13.04 was released in April 2013.13:05
mamedi have been far away from lates versions of ubuntu13:05
rigo88thats a wrong metaphor i guess13:06
mamedhm in normal time13:06

ralphymamed: oh... I don't think you can... you may want to try a different desktop13:10
ralphymamed: desktop environment13:10
lotuspsychjemamed: you can autohide dash13:11
mamedwell . i love unity i love global menu i love the dock on the left side13:11
X-Usermamed, you can try XFCE or Cinnamon13:11
mamedxfce :( cinnamon is like win:(13:11
X-Usermamed, KDE then.13:11
lotuspsychjemamed: and use docky at bottom example13:11
mamedtoo complex and have internal problems13:11
mamedhm mcan i change the pos of unity dock13:12
mamedin 13.0413:12
bekksmamed: Where do you get those wrong information from?13:12
lotuspsychjemamed: yes13:12
lotuspsychje!info docky | mamed13:12
rigo88maybe thisone? https://01.org/linuxgraphics/downloads/2013/intelr-linux-graphics-installer-version-1.0.213:12
mamedcool this was impossible in 12.0413:12
ubottumamed: docky (source: docky): Elegant, powerful, clean dock. In component universe, is optional. Version 2.1.4-1 (raring), package size 830 kB, installed size 3329 kB13:12
bekksmamed: Can you even prove that KDE "have internal problem"?13:12
mamedbekks: i am tired of seeing kde has crashed bla bla13:12
mjaykmamed: no you cant13:12
mamedalso it is a ram eater13:12
mamedqt is ok but kde:(13:13
X-Userlotuspsychje, cairo-dock / glx dock is better that Docky IMHO13:13
mjaykmamed: its not a ram eater kde needs you to configure it13:13
mjaykmamed: if you dont then its bad13:13
lotuspsychjeX-User: advantages?13:13
mjaykmamed: but if you know what you are doing it is one of the best13:13

mamedyes i know but as i said too complex. also i love global menu which does not exist in kde13:13
mamedin kde4 . in kde 3 i was13:13
mjaykmamed: like a search menu ?13:13
lotuspsychjemamed: bekks is right, you can only speak for your own experiences..13:14
mamedsearch menu?  i am talking about global menu . menu bar on the top like mac os13:14
X-Usermamed, then try this DE http://www.enlightenment.org/?p=about/e1713:14
mjaykmamed: mamed yea thats something you need to configure in kde13:14
mamedok . i will upgrade to 13.04 then if i come across any problem and cannot find any solution on the net i will come13:14
mameddo not get me wrong i dont want to offned anyone13:15

Extreminadorguys i have the "GRUB_TIMEOUT=-1" but after i install e17 desktop environment the grub is waiting 20 seconds to choice an option. Before the e17 installation this was fine... Is there any other file that i should see or any command that i should run ?13:15
ralphymamed: dont forget to try google chrome to use a newer version of flash13:15
mamedwhy not fox13:15
mjaykExtreminador: thats very strange did you just install the de enviroment ? anyway try to update grub13:16
braddoroi am trying to find out if my machine is 32 or 64 bit so I ran lscpu and I am not sure of what it is telling me, it says:    CPU op-mode(s):     32-bit, 64-bit  what does that mean?13:16
X-Userlotuspsychje, it looks much better, have a shut down button, hardware acceleration, themes, can add menus, lots of tweaks and many more13:16
mjaykExtreminador: grub2-update or something13:16
Extreminadormjayk, ahhh ok thanks will try that13:16
lotuspsychjeX-User: cool, never tryed it13:16

mjaykchrome is bad anyway13:17
mamedhm okay then13:17

mamedit would be great if ubuntu create its own DE . with qt based . isaid qt based bec it has lots of functions to create a DE and also c++ is the development lang. which is my favorite c13:18

rilaCan i msg someone?13:22
rilafor help13:22
gordonjcpralphy: pick a project, find the bug list, start fixing bugs13:22
rilaIts about drivers for graphic card13:22
gordonjcprila: best to just ask in channel13:22
rilaWell I have ati drivers installed on Ubuntu.13:22
rilaEverything works13:22
rilaBut i want to use the OS also in VMware on Windows as Physicial Machine13:23
Geraldbraddoro. if you see the lm flag. it's 64bit13:23
bekksrila: Then you cant use the native ATI drivers at all.13:23
rilaBut when i start the machine as physical machine i have black screen13:23
rilaWhich drivers should I use then?13:23
bekksrila: No. VESA drivers.13:23
Extreminadormjayk, that worked thanks13:23
rilaAre VESA the default drivers of ubuntu?13:24
Geraldgrep flags /proc/cpuinfo13:24
ralphyrila: the virtual machine cuts off access to the graphics hardware-your getting a black screen because the os thinks it needs to use the radeon drivers13:25
ralphyrila: the VESA drivers are the default barebones that you need13:26
rilaNow i can fix it13:26
rilaThanks guys13:26
rilaMakes sense now lol13:26

ashwini_essentially the same issue as http://askubuntu.com/questions/251580/created-hotspot-not-found-using-other-devices15:30
Richard_HollandIf i configure it with a temporary IP address it goes good15:30

BluesKajRichard_Holland, if you are using network manager you have to add the the static IP there too15:31
ashwini_I'm afraid for my case the issue would be the message "Booting system w/o full network configuration"15:31

Richard_HollandBluesKaj, I am gonna look that up. Thanks for the information so far.15:36
Richard_HollandBluesKaj, I have quickly scanned the page. And i have done al the things that stand there.  But I am gonna recheck it again. In this line of work one letter can mean lots of differens. ;-)15:38

EaglemanWhy can i delete a file using sftp with these permissions and chowned to the user root: -rwxr-x---  1 root root 1.3M Aug 24 17:39, when logged in as another user?15:39
wilee-nileeSilencieux, Kind of a dated link is all, the builds I'm not exactly sure.15:40
BluesKajRichard_Holland, when you get to /etc/resolv.conf  , you have to use this file instead  /etc/resolvconf/resolv.conf.d/base , because it writes to /etc/resolv.conf ,15:40
Richard_HollandBekks, unix systems and security are not new for me. It's just that Ubuntu acts different then the HP-UX i am used working with.15:40
SilencieuxSo maverick or hardy would be best for my model I believe15:41

diphtherialhey, apparently my colleague's ubuntu installation self-destructed this morning after some routine updates15:54
bekksdiphtherial: Apparently thats impossible. Ubuntu has no AI.15:54
diphtherialspecifically, grub now seems to think that all four of his partitions are MSDOS partitions, and he can't boot his windows partition at all15:54
bekksdiphtherial: Then ask him what he didnt told you yet.15:54
diphtherialbekks: sorry, i was following it up with more information..15:54
=== jan1337z is now known as jan1337zZz
diphtherialas far as i can tell, he just allowed the updates to install, it rebooted, and now he can't boot it15:55
bekksdiphtherial: Ubuntu does not change the partition layout nor the partition types itself without the user telling Ubuntu to do it.15:55
diphtherialbekks: right, which is why i'm confused15:55
bekksdiphtherial: So he did not tell you all he did.15:55
mamedhow to handle that search issue in a directory when typing a directory name15:55
bekksmamed: Which issue?15:55
mamedbekks, when i am in a directory and want to find a subdirectory i type its name . but in 13.04 it searchs all sub and sub directories15:56
mamedis this a nautilus issue?15:56
bekksmamed: When I am in a directory - in a terminal - and I type the name of a directory, I usually get "no such command".15:57
holsteinmamed: try using a file search application15:58
MonkeyDustmamed  what command are you using to find a directory?15:58
mamedii  think i could ot express my problem. bekks  imagine that you are in your home directory. and you want to type Documents . in ubuntu 12.04 and olders it highlghting the desired directory but in 13.04 it searches all sub directories15:58
wilee-nileediphtherial, Have them run sudo fdisk -l to confirm what is there15:59
mamedi dont use a command i am talking about the gui nautilus15:59
bekksmamed: When I am in my home directory, "cd Documents" will let me change into that directory.15:59
bekksmamed: I never used a GUI file manager for navigating and searching files.15:59
mameddont you have 13.04 with untity DE16:00
bekksmamed: Sure. But I have a wonderful "terminal" too.16:00
holsteinmamed: the issue is, this is not a "bug".. or something that is "broken".. you want different functionality than the defaults.. i would try an application designed to search for files, and i think you will find more options to edit16:00
MonkeyDustmamed  in a GUI, you click to open a directory, so where are you typing?16:00

bekksHypnotiX: No.16:04
ABDULLAHPls .16:04
holsteinmamed: there are many different file managers, and search applications if the default one is not doing what you expect or want16:04
bekksmamed: The behaviour changed. IT is not a bug, it is not a problem. It is a changed behaviour.16:04

MonkeyDustmamed  some functionalities have changed in nautilus, that's true: de dual pane is gone, the 'show as list' is gone, other features maybe16:08
holsteinmamed: there are many options, such as downgrading nautilus16:08
mamedhere is an answer : As far as I know the new Nautilus 3.6.X cuts many features from the 3.4 and older versions. Canonical decided to keep using nautilus 3.4.2 in Ubuntu 12.10 because if this even though Nautilus 3.6 was already released.16:09
holsteinHypnotiX: apologies :)16:09
mameddual panel also? OMG it was so usefull16:09
HypnotiXnp :)16:09
holsteinmamed: yes.. that is the answer.. the filemanager doesnt have the features by default that you seek16:09
MonkeyDustmamed  yes, i regret it too, the F3 dual pane16:10

ljetibocreated) I get the following message ** IDLE can't import Tkinter.  Your Python may not be configured for Tk. **. I looked it up online and they all say you have to install IDLE separately because it's not suported anymore, but I already did that. I installed python2.6-tk despite it  and it still doesn't work (same error message). I've tried other internet advice with some manual install guidelines and now I've just made a mess.

diphtherialif any of you have any ideas about it, i'd be forever grateful16:26
abd-allahraub: when i write some code in .c file using codeblocks ide then i run the file using F9 command. then it opens a window showing the directory where i saved the .c source file and then "permission denied".it means it can't get permission to the file to execute.16:26
holsteindiphtherial: bad hard drive, or other hardware16:26
diphtherialholstein: what makes you think that?16:26
diphtherialit's a new machine, new hard disk afaik16:26
diphtherialnot to say that it's not bad, but i'd rather eliminate other possibilities16:26
holsteindiphtherial: i dont.. its just a possibility.. new stuff breaks too, and *all* hard drives fail16:27
diphtherialright, eventually16:27
diphtherialbut he was running windows fine before this; the problems started up when he tried to install ubuntu16:27
holsteindiphtherial: i like to eliminate that possibility.. since new hard drives are just as likely16:27
diphtheriali mean, is there anything in what i pasted that indicates it's hard drive failure? it seems like the tool was able to detect all of the partitions just fine16:27
Aravindgeekabd-allah : did the source file is in ext2 or similar file systems. and not in fat or ntfs.16:28
wilee-nileediphtherial, The live cd in disks has a smart check, the windows partitions are not showing any bootloader info. Did they resize windows with the ubuntu installer?16:29
raubabd-allah: are you running the program as the same user who saved the .c file? Do you own that directory?16:29
wilee-nileewhen was the original install diphtherial ?16:29
diphtherialwilee-nilee: i don't believe so, no, although i wasn't there when he installed it16:29
diphtherialit was about a week ago; everything was running fine, through multiple reboots16:29
ljetiboanyhow, when I try sudo apt-get install python2.6 returns: python2.6 is already the newest version. Same repeats when I try install python2.6-dev and idle-python2.616:30
diphtherial(well, he had some initial trouble getting grub installed, but he eventually did it through the live CD)16:30

raubDid you check if the uuid is still proper?16:30
holsteindiphtherial: i would go to the hardware.. i feel there is not much to do "3rd party" in this way.. it could be anything16:30
diphtherialwhen he attempts to boot from the drive, grub thinks all his partitions are MSDOS partitions and doesn't allow any of them to boot16:30
abd-allahAravindgeek :ext4 file system.16:31
diphtherialwilee-nilee: ah, they haven't tried previous kernels afaik; i don't think they can even get that far into the boot process16:31

diphtherialfor what it's worth, i'm providing support over facebook; bandwidth is limited16:31
holsteindiphtherial: send them here16:31
wilee-nileediphtherial, That does not make sense that is their interpretation, what eveidence shows msdos the partition table is msdos16:31
Aravindgeekadb-allah : did you tried to use gcc in terminal and execute in same folder.16:32
wilee-nileethe script shows standard partitions16:32
raubabd-allah: as the said user, go to the directory in question and create a dummy file (using touch) and make it executable16:32
diphtherialwilee-nilee: his current problem started occurring after installing recommended updates this morning, and he does have an nvidia card16:33
diphtheriallet me ask him what he means about the drives being "MSDOS" drives, because i don't know what that means, either16:33
abd-allahAravindgeek: I don't know how to use gcc.16:33
holsteindiphtherial: you are assuming the upgrade triggered that.. and im not saying it didnt..16:33
wilee-nileediphtherial, Have them run the previous kernel from grub16:33
abd-allahraub: how to use touch and make it executable?16:33
diphtherialholstein: well, it's the last thing that changed; i know, user error, he probably deleted his fstab, etc.16:34

raubtouch file and then chmod +x file16:34
diphtherialholstein: fair enough, but i think he's fed up with this already...16:34
luissssshello everybody good morning16:34
raubI wonder what would happen if diphtherial have the guy login using the server install disk, then go to restore mode, mount the root partition, and then do upgrade-grub16:35
diphtherialstill waiting on him for what he means by grub showing MSDOS drives, but perhaps i'll give up after that16:35
diphtherialraub: is there a difference between using the server install disk and the ordinary live CD?16:35
diphtherialhe can use the live CD fine, it seems16:35
holsteindiphtherial: i understand that can be frustrating, but as a volunteer here, i would prefer dealing with you at least actually being at the hardware, or your friend16:35
raubdiphtherial: if it gives you any hint, last time I had issues like that is because I have a 512MB /boot partition and forget to delete old kernels :)16:36
diphtherialholstein: i understand, and i apologize that he's not here directly/i'm not there16:36
raubdiphtherial: I think the server cd does the chroot for you16:36
diphtherialraub: interesting; that'd kind of make sense why it occurred after an update. ah, and he's been doing the chroot himself; in fact, that's how he loads his ethernet drivers when he's booted into the live CD16:37

pepper_chicobut some distros caries the ui and ties more to it16:44

raubI have added keys to my own user stuff (for emails and such) and for a local repository17:03
holsteinO[_]: to be clear, what raub is suggesting is to refer to the user manual or documenation for the hardware to see how to enter the bios or boot media17:03

lotuspsychje!swap | majornick17:45
ubottumajornick: swap is used to move unused programs and data out of main memory to make your system faster. It can also be used as extra memory if you don't have enough. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SwapFaq for more info17:45

majornickholstein: what do i need? i got 8gb ram so should i set up a 16gb swap or is it already set up for me or should i set it up?17:53
holsteinmajornick: you dont need swap if you dont need it.. i usually suggest just letting the automated installer automate that if you are not comfortable17:54
wolffffhi, what should my  fstab file look like after i move my /home to a new drive. at this stage i have  only  two line in my fstab , one   /       and swap .... must i just add UUID=blablala /home ext4 to the line below the swap ?17:54

jribljetibo: if they're failing because of some change in a third party library, then I would suggest fixing the code.  If you want to go against my advice, then setup virtualenv and install everything in a 2.6 virtualenv18:59

HypnotiXhttp://imagebin.org/268640 look18:59
HypnotiXthis is the blkid http://paste.ubuntu.com/6022451/19:00
jribljetibo: you now have both versions.  Your system will, by default, prefer the version in /usr/local when you simply call "python".  If you want to, you can remove the version you installed.  You'll have to read python documentation for that.  Sometimes you can "make uninstall" (in the same directory where you ran "make install".  Otherwise, you have to delete the files that got installed to /usr/local19:01
wilee-nileethirty3percent, So you have a number of ppa, the wine which is probably the conflict with playonlinux, both wine and playonlinux are in the repos, no ppa's needed and not supported here. the cinnamon one is a no fetch. I would use ppa purge to remove both and purge wine and playonlinux remove all the configs and files of these two a try a reinstall. The ubuntu twaek app is a nice config remover in it19:01
wilee-nilees janitor portion, and you can search home with the names to get all the files. Cinnamon may or maybe be complety removed with the ppapurge, if not it can just be removed forom the terminal if you want it gone.19:01

FloodBot1ese: Please don't flood; use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste; don't use Enter as punctuation.19:12
jribljetibo: apt should never touch /usr/local/ ; that's your domain to handle19:12
HypnotiXbekks:  i tried the commands listed there and nothing19:12
wilee-nileeese, did you install the ubuntu-restricted-extras19:12
wilee-nileeuse nicks ese19:12
HypnotiXnow i cant even run the installer19:13
bekksHypnotiX: You can still install ubuntu using another cd, and manually create a chroot, etc.19:13
HypnotiXim not skilled enough to do that :)19:13
esewilee-nilee,  ubuntu-restricted-extras is already the newest version19:14
ljetibojrib: are you sure I need to delete usr/local/bin/python? Also all the outher libraries are installed in usr/local/lib/pythonX.X/dist-packages19:14
cstewartHypnotiX maybe try the alternate version but i believe that stopped on 12.04 LTS19:14
ljetibojrib: what do you mean apt should never go in usr/local?19:14
jribljetibo: you can ignore the apt command19:14
jribljetibo: you can ignore the apt comment19:14
wilee-nileeese, .avi and.mov are containers for types of media some do not play.19:14
HypnotiXcstewart: i installed 13.04 or 3 different systems so far including this one with no problems using that installer, i just changed the hdd on this one and i cant install on it19:15
wilee-nileelike quicktime...etc19:15
jribljetibo: yes, I am sure that you can just delete /usr/local/bin/python to make "python" call /usr/bin/python (2.7) instead of /usr/local/bin/python (2.6) as it does now19:15
esewilee-nilee,  but  .mp3 or any sound file does not play either19:15
wilee-nileeese, Downloads?19:15
cstewartHypnotix can you boot the live cd and see the new hdd19:16
esewilee-nilee,  no, in my firefox or in my usb thumbdrive (i got some files there)19:16
HypnotiXno i cant see it19:16
HypnotiXgparted see it after i try ubuntu but not from the installer19:17
M1chaHi is it possible to change the screen resolution if a application goes to fullscreen? If not globally maybe just for VLC player via some plugin/scripting API ?19:17
wilee-nileeese, Did you install any media codecs to files rather than just apt-getting them and using them, or flash this way, and tar downloads of these?19:17
HypnotiXcstewart: http://imagebin.org/26864019:17
cstewartHypnotix very interesting is this a ssd19:17
X-Userhello, i ran this command "/bin/sh -c '[ -d "$HOME/Ubuntu One" ] && ubuntuone-launch'" what will this do?19:18
l01X-User: if your home contains a directory "Ubuntu One", it runs the command ubuntuone-launch19:18
bekksX-User: It starts ubuntuone.19:19
X-Userwell, my home do not contain any Ubuntu One folder (i deleted it) and also do not run Ubuntu One.19:20
esewilee-nilee,  no i haven done that, i tried ubuntu 64 but it just can not boot from any .iso, i tried debian 7.0 no boot, ...i manage to install this ubuntu precise 12.04 32 here and after lots of fighting i got the wireless working, this is a lenovo z585 laptop and i google a lot but there is lots of problems in installing this lap i read, soo far i got it in my hard drive but with no sound or video playback.19:20
bekksHypnotiX: You should close gparted entirely before running the installer.19:20
HypnotiXi did19:20
HypnotiXbrb ill restart and try one more time and ill remove the dvd writer19:20
bekksHypnotiX: Your paste shows something different then ;)19:20
bekksHypnotiX: Why?19:20
SlartM1cha: I haven't seen anything that does this but have a look at devilspie, it's an app that works with windows, sizes and such.. perhaps you can make it check if a window is maximized and then run some terminal command to change resolution19:20
wilee-nileeese, NO sound at all anywhere?19:20
bekksHypnotiX: The dvd writer is no problem.19:20
HypnotiXi removed the partitions19:21
HypnotiXsee if that helps i donno19:21
bekksHypnotiX: stop guessing.19:21
HypnotiXwell thats all i can do right now :)19:21
SlartM1cha: It might be easier to just make a shortcut to vlc that both changes resolution and starts vlc though.. if it's just for that one application19:21
esewilee-nilee, yes no sound at all, and in video i only get 2 settings, am fine with that dho19:21
bekksHypnotiX: You paste a) does show that you did not remove anything and b) that you are running gparted and the installer in parallel.19:21
HypnotiXno pc for 2 days just trying to get it working has left me guessing19:21
HypnotiXthats an old paste19:21
bekksHypnotiX: Then why do you show it to us?19:22
HypnotiXi showed it for cstewart19:22
wilee-nileeese, Cool we see that on occasion, not an area I can really help in that is the first issue I would be mentioning.19:22
HypnotiXto understand the problem19:22
M1chaSlart: Thx for the tip I'll take a look at devilspie or maybe compiz would work, too. The shortcut option wouldn't be good in case I want  to use VLC just to hear some music19:23
HypnotiXi cant even open the installer now thats why i want to reboot19:23
cstewartthats very interesting, i'm not sure what else to suggest let me ponder it for minute19:23
esewilee-nilee,  i think is the drivers19:23
wilee-nileekeep it simple to some extent and start at the beginning basically ese19:23
esewilee-nilee,  yeah, i like to have sound ...first xD19:23
HypnotiXso it goes like this i reboot run the installer from the live cd and i see that screen without my hdd or the partitions in the installer19:24
SlartM1cha: so, use the regular shortcut for vlc for when you just want the regular vlc and the modified shortcut for the "change res and then run vlc" script19:24
cstewartother then nuke the partition table and create a new one19:24
=== DTH0_ is now known as DX099
=== owner_ is now known as Guest76236
cstewarthypnotix it should reconize the partition table but maybe if you wipe it then try and install that will correct the issue. sometimes extended lvm have issue at least i have ran into that when trying to install on an existing HD or maybe barts boot and nuke19:27
HypnotiXok i removed all the partitions with gparted19:28
HypnotiXill reboot and try again19:28
Falcon82how do i defrag?19:29
stomanataHi, can somebody help me fixind nvidia driver problems19:31
stomanatahere is 1 simple pic that show some of problems http://i43.tinypic.com/316nogg.png19:31
hidFalcon82: no need to defrag linux fs19:31
growna hello, i am trying to understand the "Take ownership of filesystem" option in gparted before formatting/partitioning a drive, but I failed googling. Can someone explain to me if I need this or not, or what it does? Please...19:31
stomanataother problem is when i scrolling in facebook all aroud browser go out :(19:32

RileyGuyCan someone help me? im having problems with a java game yet i have java installed19:32
RileyGuythink anyone could help? :)19:32
Muelli!anyone || RileyGuy19:33
ubottu| RileyGuy: A high percentage of the first questions asked in this channel start with "Does anyone/anybody..." Why not ask your next question (the real one) and find out? See also !details, !gq, and !poll.19:33
cstewartRileyGuy apt-get install openjdk-7-jdk19:33
ubottuTo just use java you need a "Java Runtime Environment" (JRE) and/or a browser plugin. If that is not sufficient you will need a "Java Development Kit" (JDK) aka "Software  Development Kit" (SDK).  Please see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Java about how to install one of three current implementations.19:33
RileyGuyI am having trouble with minecraft not working, it starts up to the title but then freezes when i load a world, ubuntu 13.0419:34
sealbhachRileyGuy: dude we're not psychic, say what problem is19:34
RileyGuyjava 7 installed and everything19:34
holsteinRileyGuy: you might want to ask minecraft for support there.. i would try soemthing to test java.. you are assuming its a java/ubuntu issue.. could be that another version of minecraft would work fine, or that they are not supporting 13.0419:34
RileyGuyive seen other people play it on 13.0419:35
SlartRileyGuy: is it the same with all worlds or just the one?19:35
holsteinRileyGuy: i have ran it on 13.04, but that doesnt help you right now19:35
=== l01 is now known as ui_
RileyGuymight be a lwjgl issue19:35
cstewartgames are outside set of tools19:35
bekksRileyGuy: You dont need Java 7 for running it.19:35
RileyGuyjava 6?19:36
MuelliRileyGuy: how do you it freezes?19:36
bekksRileyGuy: Java 6.19:36
SlartRileyGuy: no errors or such if you start minecraft from a terminal?19:37
RileyGuyit starts up fine and dandy sounds and everything but when i load a world it freezes to a dirt backround19:37
RileyGuyno errors in the console or anything19:37
sealbhachIs your graphics card able to run it?19:37
bekksRileyGuy: Try using Java 6 and check your graphics drivers.19:38
RileyGuymy ubuntu already supports the one i have19:38
bekksRileyGuy: That doesnt matter when the game does not support them.19:39
RileyGuyive never really had luck with java 719:39
bekksRileyGuy: Then try using Java 6 now.19:39
RileyGuyso maybe 6 will help like said19:39
RileyGuyinstalling it now19:40
RileyGuyone more problem tho19:40
RileyGuymy ubuntu hates it when i install things directly from the software center19:40
RileyGuyso i gotta use terminal19:40
bekksRileyGuy: Then use the terminal.19:41
XLVi got an somewhat older system used as a server.. athlon x2 3800, on an asus a8n sli nf4 mb, using a pci sis6326 8MB vga.. i cant get any latest live usb to run.. i have tried ubuntu and debian live .. it stops with a message about out of sync mode used on the monitor.. i have tried to insert the nomodeset option, there isnt the option available in live usb booting, as per the docs.. i am downloading 12.04 lts now19:41
ljetibojrib: thanks again, everything seems to be in order, much obiged19:41
holsteinRileyGuy: you might "hate" i, but i assure you, your ubuntu has not preference19:41
bekksXLV: Throw that SIS graphics crap away.19:41
RileyGuyi know xD19:41
holsteinyeah.. i have sis, and i just bypassed it.. never could get it working19:41
XLVbekks, for a server, its more than sufficient..19:41
bekksXLV: It causes your current problems.19:42
XLVbekks, also.. that attitude is more apporopriate for windows lusers channels19:42
holsteinXLV: there is no "live" ubuntu server19:42
bekksXLV: You never dealt with SIS hardware on Linux then.19:42
sazawalWhere do I get a graphics driver for, Intel Corporation Xeon E3-1200 v2/3rd Gen Core processor Graphics Controller19:42
XLVholstein, ... i am trying to load a live usb to troubleshoot a grub problem after a failing hdd19:42
holsteinsazawal: shouldnt need one19:42
RileyGuynope still freezing19:42
holsteinXLV: good luck.. i would avoid it19:42
sealbhachXLV: Try nosplash option19:42
bekkssazawal: sudo apt-get install xf86-video-intel19:43
holsteinXLV: you can try "nomodeset" and forcing vesa..19:43
XLVbekks, i have been running that system with that sis card for years ( in older systems too ).. you really dont know wtf you are talking about.. pls reply only if you have some valid contribution19:43
XLVholstein, sealbhach the nosplash and the nomodeset were added in the boot kernel parameters19:44
XLVsame thing19:44
bekksXLV: Watch your language. And I cant help you if you dont like the answers - it was you who asked.19:44
RileyGuycan i paste my log?19:44
sazawalbekks, unable to locate package :(19:44
XLVbekks, my language is fine.. its the content you dont like.. i have no problem with your answers, just stating its irrelevant and unhelpful, and i ask you to stop trying to "help" me, you seem to not having the experties and you pollute the troubleshooting discussion19:45
holsteinXLV: it many not work.. didnt work for me19:45
bekkssazawal: Most likely, it is installed already, although it has another name.19:45
bekksXLV: ignore set.19:45
XLVbekks, great.. thank you19:45
holsteinXLV: i have never had any luck with sis graphics..19:45
sazawalbekks, let me find it on google.19:46
sealbhachXLV: If you just want to fix grub, install a no desktop edition, server edition or whatever or get a boot recovery type distro19:46
XLVholstein, i really have been using this card for years now.. using it so the pcie ports can be used for storage and/or nic19:46
holsteinXLV: these are ubuntu based, and run "live".. http://www.turnkeylinux.org/ might help19:46
XLVsealbhach, yeah, i'll try 12.04 lts and alternative version19:46
holsteinXLV: im not debating a server cant utilize the hardware.. im saying, if you are having issues running x on there, so was i19:47
bazhang!alternate | XLV19:47
ubottuXLV: The alternate CD has been discontinued for the main Ubuntu distro, please use and report any bugs in the !LiveCD19:47
sazawalbekks, yes it is installed. Though I have a problem with the gnome-shell 3.6. I thought may be it is due to the driver. Anyways thanks19:47
gibbsDo source packages (from apt-get source) upgrade?19:48
Slartgibbs: afaik they do19:48
bekksgibbs: No, they dont.19:48
Slartgibbs: I must admit I haven't really checked if they do but it would be pretty odd if they didn't19:48
XLVbazhang, i have no problem using an older live cd with alternative offered.. i just want to get to a shell with all commands available to chroot and fix grub19:48
bekksgibbs: They are "installed" in the current directory, and the package management system does not track them.19:49
holsteinXLV: the alternate's were not live19:49
XLVholstein, the server ran xorg fine before the hdd and grub bork19:49
gibbsbekks: how would I upgrade (then recompile)?19:49
bekksgibbs: run apt-get source again, and recompile.19:50
Slartgibbs: "upgrade" as in that there will new versions of the source packages when there is a new version of the package.. they won't upgrade the source you have downloaded.. you'll have to remove the source and download again19:50
XLVholstein, ok.. does anyone remember what was first ubuntu that offered grub2 by default?19:50
holsteinXLV: alternate cd's dont boot live..19:50
holsteinXLV: the turnkey linux appliances do.. though they are not officially supported here19:50
gibbsthanks. Is there a way to check what the latest source version is?19:50
RichardHollandi need to use the commando dhclient eth0 to set the static address. But what if i wanna make it persistent? So that with a reboot i still have a working static IP adres on interface eth0?19:50
bekksgibbs: apt-cache policy packagename19:51
DJonesXLV: I think grub 2 became default from 9.1019:51
XLVDJones, thanks19:51
SlartRichardHolland: /etc/interfaces19:51
bekksRichardHolland: DHCP does not set static addresses.19:51
RichardHollandSlart, that is configured correctly19:51
gibbsexcellent. thanks bekks and Slart19:51
nl287Slart: /etc/network/interfaces19:51
RichardHollandbekks, i know, that is done in /etc/network/interfaces19:52
SlartRichardHolland: I mean, you'll have to edit that file yourself with the information you want.. I don't think dhclient will do it for you19:52
bekksRichardHolland: dhclient does not change /etc/network/interfaces, you have to do it yourself.19:52
nl287RichardHolland: but i think if u edit interfaces u need diable network menager in gnome19:52
RichardHollandSlart, the static address only worked after using the command dhclient eth019:52
bekksRichardHolland: And with doing so, you dont need dhclient anymore to get an ip address.19:52
sazawalSNA 2D Graphics Acceleration is causing troubles in gnome-shell 3.6. Please help!19:52
grownahave a nice week everybody19:52
M1chaOk I finally added a hotkey with compiz config manager to switch between my scaled and native resolution19:53
bekksRichardHolland: dhclient sets a dynamic address, no static one.19:53
RichardHollandnl287, how do i disable the network manager?19:53
SlartRichardHolland, nl287: as nl287 mentioned.. it's in /etc/network/interfaces , my bad19:53
RichardHollandbekks, i know.. .but it was the solution19:53
bekksRichardHolland: It cant be the solution, since those two things are contrary.19:53
nl287RichardHolland: maybe there is option disable in menu19:53
SlartRichardHolland: hmm.. might be something else that dhclient does ... or it might be a server setting if you have a paranoid dhcp-server/firewall19:53
bekksRichardHolland: You can set a static IP in the network manager as well.19:54
RichardHollandbekks, i know... it was strange but true19:54
subcoolwhat happen between 12.04 and 13? - i copied my fstab to mount my network shares, and now im getting erros19:54
bekkssubcool: which errors?19:54
RichardHollandbekks, it confusing that you can set the ip address in so many places in ubuntu.19:54
O[_]downloading linux -- SLOW SLOW SLOW19:54
subcoolbekks wrong fs type19:54
RichardHollandbekks, and the don't seem to work together.19:54
bekksRichardHolland: thats just depending on what you want to achieve using which approach.19:55
bekkssubcool: then you are using an fstype thats not installed/supported19:55
RichardHollandbekks, the old way, not gui. So I can manage, and not the machine19:55
subcoolbekks mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on,19:55
nl287network menager working very well bu excludes with editing interfaces19:55
bekkssubcool: Whats the fstab line?19:55
bekksRichardHolland: network manager works flawlessly here.19:56
RichardHollandnl287, the network manager is through the desktop?19:56
subcoolbekks                  /mnt/Media              nfs             auto    0       019:56
bekksRichardHolland: there is a cli tool: nm-cli19:56
nl287RichardHolland: yes, this is service i think19:56
bekkssubcool: that will not work. ;)19:56
subcoolbekks works on my other two macines19:56
bekkssubcool: your box is trying to mount before the network is up. Add the "_netdev" option.19:56
RichardHollandbekks, nm-cli?19:57
subcoolbekks im doing that command with mount -a19:57
bekksRichardHolland: Thats what I said, yes.19:57
subcoolbekks while the box is on19:57
bekkssubcool: "auto" implies: "whenever the box boots up, run it".19:57
RichardHollandbekks, how do i install it, or start it19:57
subcoolbekks so change auto to _netdev?19:58
bekkssubcool: And if you dont have the nfs utilities installed, it wont work either.19:58
bekkssubcool: No, "add" means: let it look like this: auto,_netdev19:58
nl287RichardHolland: i was using manual editing networking and network menager, but if i want warking /etc/network/interfaces i need to disable network menager in menu on panel19:58
subcoolbekks oh ok.. thanks19:58
RichardHollandnl287, i think i uninstalled the whole network manager. I won't find it anymore in the desktop19:59
nl287RichardHolland: u dont need uninstall. disable is enough19:59
RichardHollandnl287, well it's done anyway20:00
RichardHollandbekks, how do i install it, or start. The program you suggested20:00
subcoolbekks mount: unknown filesystem type '_netdev'20:01
RichardHollandnl287, Goedenavond trouwens.20:01
bekkssubcool: Then your fstab entry is wrong.20:02
kabamarocan i ask something?20:02
kabamarosomebody installed something called "Sniffer" on my ubuntu server20:03
kabamarothey can access root through port 22 without me knowing20:03
kabamaroeven when i access my server20:03
kabamaroroot@testnode1:~# w20:03
kabamaro 20:01:24 up 9 days,  3:55,  0 users,  load average: 0.00, 0.01, 0.0520:03
kabamaroit shows 0 users20:03
subcoolbekks the only thing was the Ip addy20:03
bekksRichardHolland: The package is named "network-manager"20:04
bekkssubcool: What does that mean?20:04
subcoolbekks my router is being a d'bag about assigning ips20:04
bekkskabamaro: How do you know that?20:04
ironfoot495Hello is there sdomeone who is familiar with restoreing SOAP and mysql back in phpinfo()?20:04
subcoolit keeps chaning the IP address of my machines, so- i have a hard time keeping the ip address to the proper machine. and i cant assing ip's through the router-20:05
RichardHollandbekks, they told me the network-manager conflicts with /etc/network/interfaces20:05
subcoolbekks, point bieng i adjusted the IP to the proper ip and the error still occurs20:05
bekksRichardHolland: Which is true. Either use network-manager or manage that file on your own.20:05
rtr-kabamaro so why do you think there is currently  someone on your system?20:05
ironfoot495I upgraded php to 5.5.3 and there is no trace of mysq,mysqli and SOAP20:05
bekkssubcool: Then your entry is still wrong.20:05
subcoolbekks, thats my point- it works on my other two machines..20:05
kabamarortr- because i found a directory called "Sniffer"20:06
bekkssubcool: Which I doubt, strongly.20:06
subcoolbekks im coping it from two working computers20:06
kabamaroin my server20:06
bekkssubcool: Then it cant be working, since it is wrong, simply.20:06
nl287there maybe another one service conflicting mDNS20:06
rtr-kabamaro, where did you find this folder?20:06
kabamarortr- in /root20:07
RichardHollandbekks, i just wanna use the file /etc/network/interfaces. Only after rebooten i don't get a static IP address on eth0 to work. I need the command dhclient eth0 to start the interface eth020:07
rtr-kabamaro, and its simply that? /root/Sniffer ? nothing hidden? not even /root/.Sniffer ? whats in it?20:08
kabamarothere are over 500 files in it20:08
kabamarosuch as20:08
kabamarompaux.h            ssh-keygen20:08
kabamaroMakefile.in        config.h.in       mpaux.o            ssh-keygen.020:08
FloodBot1kabamaro: Please don't flood; use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste; don't use Enter as punctuation.20:08
bekksRichardHolland: you never get a static address, you have to assign it yourself.20:08
DJoneskabamaro: If your server has been compromised, first thing to do would be disconnect it from the internet and then reinstall, you could never be sure that removing the things you don't recognise actually catches everything20:08
nl287RichardHolland: u need only proper edit interfaces20:08
kabamaroDJones i do not have physical access to it, only remote access20:09
cstewartKabamaro that is present usually when you install wireshark on your system it creates root/sniffer20:09
kabamarocstewart yes but i did not install wireshark20:10
syn-ackAnything with a pcap, for that matter20:10
kabamaroand i also found some brute-force scanners, something called go.sh, it scans servers for port 22 and brute-forces root password20:10
syn-ackdestroy and rebuild. You're screwed20:11
cstewartif its a remote server you might want to install psacct to determine user activity20:11
cstewartyea reload20:11
kabamaroits my fault20:12
cstewartthen look up ubuntu hardened server in google20:12
dswhite85I've got a minor issue with my sound. It randomly crackles from speakers/headphones and the sound crackles/pops noise whenever I adjust the volume up or down with no music playing. Any thoughts?20:12
kabamaromy root password was 123420:12
kabamaroi guess thats how they got in20:12
lhxkabamaro: tsk tsk tsk20:12
rtr-watch your authorized_keys becuause i see ssh-keygen.020:12
syn-ackYou're kidding me, right?20:12
lhxkabamaro: needs to be at least 8-10 characters, case sensitive and with a number and a special character20:12
kabamaroyeah, 1234.20:12
DJoneskabamaro: And this is why ubuntu doesn't recommend setting any root passwords20:12
lhxkabamaro: you deerved to be rooted...20:12
subcoolbekks yeah- it works20:13
syn-ackI was just going to say the samething20:13
rtr-how long did you have this password?20:13
kabamarortr about 2 months20:13
lhxkabamaro: also, you should change your SSH port to something non standard...20:13
RichardHollandbekks, i posted the whole problem on ubuntuforum with thread number 2169928. Maybe if you have time to react on that i would preciate that. Or somebody else for that matter.20:13
kabamarolhx i tried that, i changed it... but even when i change it, port 22 still works20:13
lhxi mean, before you were rooted20:14
dswhite85anyone have any ideas if maybe its a software or hardware issue or something in the terminal i could use to fix it?20:14
lhxyou might as well reinstall from scractch dude20:14
subcoolbekks, i just realized i didnt have the softare installed that supports nfs yet20:14
kabamaroim thinking of changing my internet provider anyway20:14
lhxyou never know what stuff the cracker put on your box... only way to know for sure is to wipe it and start over20:14

x-yurihi, I'm having hard time trying to make rt3090 (wifi) work on ubuntu raring. Does anyone know how to make it work?20:15
kabamarolhx yeah i know, but im changing for a better location20:15

kabamarolhx do you know anything about google compute server hosting?20:15
lhxkabamaro: yup... keeps them from brute forcing you20:15
lhxkabamaro: I like linode20:15
kabamaroi just purchased a server from google, it looks good since its hosted by google20:16

bekkskabamaro: why do you need a hosted server?20:16
kabamaroi run multiple websites20:17

kabamaroi dont usually use 1234 as a password, it was just a one time thing and they brute forced me20:17
bekkskabamaro: Which took just a few seconds, with that password. Just dont set a root password at all.20:18

reisiokabamaro: sure20:20
kabamarobekks: https://cloud.google.com/products/compute-engine20:20
bekkskabamaro: Never, literally never ever, give anyone access to your server. Never.20:20
kabamarobekks im re-installing it tomorrow20:21
kabamaroits just for testing20:21
bekkskabamaro: Thats a cloud stuff only. :)20:21
basichashHow do I change nano tab spaces from to 4?20:21
kabamarobekks yeah but its amazing for web hosting and stuff20:22
bekkskabamaro: You dont have a "managed server" - you just have "a part of some cloud".20:22
kabamaroyeah i know20:22
bekkskabamaro: You said you have a managed server now.20:22
kabamaroits like a VPS i guess20:22
Extreminadorguys what is the "x-session-manager" for ?20:22
kabamarobekks not the google one, the other one that was brute-forced20:22
Extreminadortwo hours ago i did use it and the entire desktop have disappear leaving only the background and the desktop icons20:23
bekkskabamaro: And they are incredibly expensive. Running it 24h/7days will cost you 142$ a week - at least.20:24

ubuntuissuesHello, I have been the one having issues trying to restore my file system on my server, I ran an fsck and it said it completed with  issues. However, it says that it has created a a lost+found directory, unfortunately, I still am unable to mount it as the ubuntu live cd I am running states this:20:38
ubuntuissuesError mounting /dev/sda1 at /media/ubuntu/root: Command-line `mount -t "ext4" -o "uhelper=udisks2,nodev,nosuid" "/dev/sda1" "/media/ubuntu/root"' exited with non-zero exit status 32: mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sda1,20:38
ubottuDon't feel ignored and repeat your question quickly; if nobody knows your answer, nobody will answer you. While you wait, try searching https://help.ubuntu.com/ or http://ubuntuforums.org/ or http://askubuntu.com/20:39
Jordan_Uubuntuissues: Is the harware good? Have you checked the S.M.A.R.T. status of the drive? Do you have backups of the important data?20:39
ubuntuissuesJordan_U, I don't have backups of the drive, it was the / partition. The SMART status is fine, and the hardware is good (it was in RAID 1).20:41
=== anon1 is now known as SchrodingersScat
ubuntuissuesIf I attempt to do dumpe2fs it gives me a buch of information, but none that looks to be usable.20:41
bekksubuntuissues: Why dont you try mounting it like: sudo mkdir /mnt/test; sudo mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/test20:41
ubuntuissuesbekks,  I have tried that, and it reacts the same way... "mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sda1,"20:42
SkeeterBwhat device is usually the CD/DVD drive in linux? I have it set up as the secondary master on my IDE Bus20:42
Jordan_Uubuntuissues: You said that it was in RAID1, is this a hardware RAID controller?20:43
ubuntuissuesJordan_U, it was, but it is logical damage to the disk. Considering I already did an fdisk, it should have already mirrored the data.20:43
ubuntuissuesdmesg states this: http://pastebin.ubuntu.com/6022764/20:43
bekksubuntuissues: Then look at dmesg. And pastebin: sudo blkid please20:43
Jordan_Uubuntuissues: What do you mean by "it was"? Is the device /dev/sda currently representing a hardware RAID1 of two different drives? (Note that true hardware RAID controllers are very expensive, and almost never come with Desktop motherboards).20:45
ubuntuissuesJordan_U,  Sorry, it should have been It is. The Hardware RAID controller is a PERC 5i. bekks, http://pastebin.ubuntu.com/6022777/20:46
ubuntuissuesI removed some of the UUID's20:46
ubuntuissuesHowever, the one I am trying to mount is labeled root20:46
bekksubuntuissues: BAckup the disk, and run sudo fsck -f20:47
ubuntuissuesbekks, I aready ran sudo fsck by it self on that drive.20:48
bekksubuntuissues: fsck is not the same as fsck -f20:48
ubuntuissuesIs it similar to fsck -y or -a20:48
bekksubuntuissues: No.20:49

Jordan_Uubuntuissues: Did that complete with an exit status of 0?20:53
ubuntuissuesIt ended with the last line in the pastebin, and then dropped me to the ability to run another comand. So yes.20:54
Jordan_Uubuntuissues: (To check, run "echo $?" *immediately* after running the command, or run "sudo fsck -f /dev/sda1; echo $0" if it's too late for that.20:54
Jordan_Uubuntuissues: Sorry, typo. Should have been "$?", not "$0".20:55
ubuntuissuesAfter displaying the last line (root.......) it has an exit status of 0, yes.20:56
webxI'm having a whale of a time trying to figure out which init script is hanging my machine.  ubuntu 13.04, and just after init-bottom finishes, it hangs20:58
webxI can't paste the dmesg output since the machine hangs, so I just took a picture.  the console looks like this: http://bit.ly/18RTxu820:59

webxI'm wondering how I can figure out the script(s) that are running after init-bottom20:59
Jordan_Uubuntuissues: Try "sudo grub-mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/".21:00
ubuntuissuesIt returned to a new line with no error.21:00
Jordan_Uubuntuissues: "ls /mnt/" and see if you can see your files.21:00
ubuntuissuesAll it is is a lost and found folder now.21:01
ubuntuissuesAnd it is taking a while to display the contents of it.21:01
Jordan_Uubuntuissues: Slowness is expected with grub-mount, it's not really intended for normal use.21:01
ubuntuissueshttp://pastebin.ubuntu.com/6022819/ So that is expected?21:02
SkeeterBhave you tried booting using a live CD/DVD and mounting?21:03
ubuntuissuesSkeeterB, I am in a livd disc right now.21:03
bekksSkeeterB: he is on a cd ;)21:03
Jordan_Uubuntuissues: It's not terribly surprising that it might take a long time to complete, but the fact that it only shows lost+found is not comforting.21:04
bekksubuntuissues: could you pastebing the entire output of dmesg?21:04
SkeeterBok I am on an installed version though21:04
ubuntuissuesYeah, I know. But, if it even has just the folders I need in lost+found, then I can rebuild the system with the /etc, /var, or /usr folders.21:04
ubuntuissuesJust for my own sanity, can you define 'slowness', should I be waiting hours, or is it just a couple minutes?21:04
ubuntuissuesbekks, hold on21:04
Jordan_Uubuntuissues: After 10 minutes you can probably give up on it ever finishing.21:05
ubuntuissuesbekks, http://pastebin.ubuntu.com/6022826/21:05
ubuntuissuesSo if that fails, is there any other option I have to mount to even see if the files that are located are in there?21:06
Jordan_Uubuntuissues: And if it does finish after 10 mintues, I would expect it to be because all of your files were placed in the top level of lost+found leading to hundreds of thousands of files to be listed.21:06
ubuntuissuesJordan_U, shouldn't the second 0 indicate how many files there actually are?21:06
ubuntuissuesOr directories21:06
ubuntuissuesSo: dr-xr-xr-x 0 root root 0 Aug 24 15:05 lost+found That number after the owner would indicate if anything was recovered?21:07
Jordan_Uubuntuissues: grub-mount is not intended for regular use, and does not necessarily represent normal POSIX semantics.21:07
bekksubuntuissues: Just look into that folder.21:08
ubuntuissuesbekks, I can't cd or ls into it without it taking some time.21:09
bekksubuntuissues: Then you have wait :)21:09

MosecoI have what i hope is a quick question. I have windows 7 on 1 ssd and ubuntu (installed 2nd) on another ssd. What is the best way to dual boot this set up? I am aware of the repair tool, does this create a grub dual boot for this?21:57

Atlanteanbekks: I dont have Debian21:59

Mosecowille-nille, i used a disk to install ubuntu onto the HD while my windows HD was disconected22:00
wilee-nileeMoseco, You using grub to boot both?22:00
Atlanteanbekks: I said I want to install linux and I cannot any, so I stopped by to look, if when I run Ubuntu now, someone can tell me if there are some drivers for Ubuntu and it is straightforward, cause Linux Mint failed at it totally22:00
LordDragonis there a GUI app in ubunty for monitor the syslog ?22:00
LordDragonerm ubuntu*22:00
Mosecowille-nille, when i have only my ubuntu connected it shows the grub screen but with both HDs connected windows boots22:00
bekksAtlantean: Use a recent Ubuntu version then. 10.10 is not supported anymore.22:01
kostkonLordDeath, the default gnome log viewer?22:01
squaregoldfishVassiliAir: zlib is a library. To compile a program that needs it, you have to install the development package. For zlib, look in synaptic for a package named something like zlib-dev or libzlib-dev.22:01
AtlanteanAtlantean: no be sure I have the newest22:01
kostkonLordDragon, the default gnome log viewer?*22:01
LordDragonah found it22:01
AtlanteanAtlantean: I have the newest one22:01
bekksAtlantean: you said you have 10.10 - which is not the newest.22:01
kostkonLordDragon, :)22:02
AtlanteanI have installed all versions on hdd22:02
wilee-nileeMoseco, both are internal HD right, you can have both plugged in and that is a dualboot, am I missing something here?22:02
bekksAtlantean: However. MAybe someone else will support you - I wont anymore.22:02
Atlanteanok, I see, Ubuntu is shit22:03
Mosecowilee-nilee, they are both internal, but when i installed ubuntu i had my windows HD disconnected22:03
silne30Does anyone have any familiarity with fdisk and issues that can come about?22:03
Atlanteanas someone mentioned on forum "made by laicks for laicks"22:03
Mosecowilee-nille, Would launching from the install disk and using the repair tool make it so grub came up instead of windows?22:03
wilee-nileeMoseco, Right plug them both in in ubuntu run sudo update-grub and you will either with grub if you have that HD read first in the bios.22:04
wilee-nilee you will boot either*&22:04
silne30http://pastebin.com/wCmEFFPc This is what fdisk records to me. sda3 and sda5 seem to overlap or something and it seems to be sda3's fault.22:04
VassiliArhttp://pastebin.com/aFL59x1L - my pastebin error url i suppose22:05
bekksVassiliAr: Pastebin the full output, not just two lines.22:05
crundarAlright, I managed the first step, which is to enable my fs in read/write mode, and I can now edit the /etc/modprobe.d/nvidia-graphics-drivers.conf file22:05
VassiliArthe full output is 2 lines22:05
crundarnot entirely sure what I need to do from there to reenable the right graphics drivers22:05
VassiliAryou mean the commnad im using too?22:05
Mosecowille-nilee, So this will configure the bios to read the ubuntu hard drive first or do i go into bios and change the order to the ubuntu drive?22:06
bekksVassiliAr: No. The output of the command giving you that error is much much longer. Give us the full output.22:06

NaphatulVassiliAr: why are you compiling qemu?22:07
VassiliArno the output is 2 lines only - i could add a 3rd if you like by adding the command that i used which is configure22:07
wilee-nileeMoseco, You can tab complete nicks to get them correct, so we are notified you are talking to us. You have to set the bios.22:07
bekksVassiliAr: We want to see a paste with the command in the first line and the full output of that command.22:07
VassiliAri cannot use package manager as non root - but i read and beeng told that it can be done anyway22:08
bekksVassiliAr: I will not tell it a fourth time.22:08
bekksVassiliAr: You dont need to install anything.22:08
VassiliArman 2 mins ago i didnt know what pastebin was cut me some slack here please22:08
Naphatulbekks: he means thats why he's compiling qemu, because he can't install it22:08
wilee-nileeMoseco, There is also a boot from menu outside the bios for a persession choiced of what to boot from, say if you want to boot a cd, or usb or the other HD without changing the bios22:08
bekksNaphatul: We dont even know the command he is running.22:08
Mosecowilee-nilee: Ok, so using sudo update-grub will make the grub have windows and ubuntu in it, and then i go into the bios and set the ubuntu drive first in the list. Just to make sure i have it right.22:09
wilee-nileeMoseco, You have got it. ;)22:09
Mosecowilee-nilee: Thank you very much, time to hopefully not break my computer :P22:09
squaregoldfishVassiliAr: If you can't use a package manager to install things, I'm afraid you can't get much further - you'll  need to install the support packages for compilation, and if you can't do that then you're stuck.22:10
VassiliArhere i updated the pastebin adding commandline (one of many that i tried) : http://pastebin.com/neVQb7GY22:10
bekksVassiliAr: Where is the FULL output of that command?22:11
VassiliArthere is nothing else - i dont see anything else printed in the console22:11

VassiliArno that is after configure finishes o have seen it - you mean after make and make install run - but i dont get to that part because to execution stops earlier22:13

Jordan_UVassiliAr: Ubuntu has a package manager for a reason, if you try to install programs without using the package manager at all 1: It will be verry difficult, much more so than just compiling a single program normally would be 2: So far away from how Ubuntu is setup to work that I'd almost say it's offtopic for this channel and 3: So tedious that you can't expect people to want to help you through it, so be happy if they do but don't expe22:37

Jordan_UVassiliAr: The solution for installing qemu in Ubuntu is to run "sudo apt-get install qemu". You are doing something very different, because you don't have admin privileges on the machine you're using. You're also not just compiling a single program, so please clarify that in the future.22:51
AnonynimityVassiliAr- please try sudo apt-get install zlib zlib-lib linux-headers-generic22:51
Anonynimityor sudo apt-get install zlib zlib-libs linux-headers-generic22:51
Anonynimityif that doesn't work remove the zlib-libs command VassiliAr22:52
VassiliAranonymity and jordan i cant use package manager cause i dont have root - but i have read that i could be done anyway and even been told so in chat rooms like this one22:52
Jordan_UVassiliAr: And answers like Anonynimity gave are why you need to clarify what you're actually trying to do. You're *not* just compiling qemu.22:52
AnonynimityJordan_U >> line 4 Error:zlib check failed >> Line 5 : make sure to have the zlib libs and headers installed.22:53
Jordan_UVassiliAr: Please try ##linux, and if you ask your question again without clarifying that you are trying to compile qemu and all of its build dependencies and all of its runtime dependencies without access to the package manager, I will have to mute you as you are wasting helper's time.22:54

actarus488wilee-nilee what is a bouncer, is a irc name?23:07

VassiliAryes napha what im saying is that many guys leave when a difficulty shows up and some go one - especially if i know that it is possible to do it23:12
BabsSeedwilee-nilee: I need encrypted swap :)23:12
MosecoJordan_U: sudo efibootmgr output: http://paste.ubuntu.com/6023160/23:12
JofironsesNaphatul: Seems like I had it wrong. Here is what I have on my unistd.c #include <config.h>23:12
Jofironses#define _GL_UNISTD_INLINE _GL_EXTERN_INLINE23:12
Jofironses#include "unistd.h"23:12
NaphatulVassiliAr: because you're expecting them to do your work for you, also this is the wrong channel to ask23:13
TaZeRsup noobuntus LOL23:13
VassiliAri been to qemu its empty23:13
NaphatulJofironses: still no idea what you're looking at23:13
VassiliAri been to qemu channel its empty23:13
Extreminadoris i possible to know the command in use for some window program ? like the xwininfo that gives some information but not this one23:14
=== eddie is now known as Guest77607
VassiliArnapha i been trying to do this for 2 days already - dont you think its time i get some help?23:14
Jordan_UMoseco: Please join #grub and ask why grub-install isn't succesfully adding a boot entry for your UEFI firmeware, and post a link to the output of "sudo grub-install" and "sudo efibootmgr".23:14
NaphatulVassiliAr: did you get the zlib development libraries?23:14
MosecoJordan_U: Thanks23:15
Jordan_UVassiliAr: You are not entitled to help, especially not for something like this.23:15
Jordan_UVassiliAr: If you want to be entitled to support, then pay for support services. We are all volunteers.23:15
VassiliArjeez jordan you seem like my judge doing statements like that -  and why do you think other people offer help in situations like mine?23:16
TaZeRkeep noobin it up noobuntus23:16
jordanVassiliAr: if you mean to address Jordan_U you should probably use his name instead of mine23:17
JofironsesNaphatul: I am still trying to find symlink(...). I have my /usr/include/sys/unistd.h: "#include <unistd.h>"23:17
JofironsesNaphatul: Let me get you my unistd.h23:17
=== BJfreeman is now known as Guest95068
VassiliArsorry jordan lol23:19
=== _BJFreeman is now known as BJfreeman
VassiliAri find amusing that jordan tells me im not entitle for help - especially in linux where everything is for everyone23:19
JofironsesNaphatul: My /usr/include/unistd.h: does in fact have extern int symlink(__const char *__from...)23:19
JofironsesNaphatul: but still no source code23:20
jordanVassiliAr: I find it amusing that you keep pinging me when you mean to address Jordan_U23:20
JofironsesNaphatul: i see only the declaration23:20
VassiliArfunny point of view he has - maybe its beacuse he has some authority in this chat which seems to cloud his judgement23:20
BabsSeedVassiliAr: In Linux if something doesn't exist, you create it yourself, not complain like a spoilt child that no one's doing it for you.23:20
VassiliArsorry again jordan i meant jordan U23:20
BabsSeedThat's my $0.0223:20
AnonynimityI have a more complicated question... would someone be able to tell me how to port ubuntu phone to the huawei fusion 2?23:20
NaphatulJofironses: i don't think they have to ship the source code, only provide it if you ask for it23:21
Naphatulso it's most likely not included23:21
Naphatulwhy aren't you looking at the page i linked? it contains the source code to all the coreutils, find it there23:21
VassiliArim not complaining i been trying to do this for days  and thought i was time to get some human help23:22
JofironsesNaphatul: I have the downloaded project already. Opened it in my netbeans. Still cannot find the source code23:22
BabsSeedVassiliAr: Try asking on qemu mailing lists, this isnt #qemu23:22
VassiliArand again i says i know its possible to do it - i read about it and been told about it in chats23:22
VassiliArim not trying to create anything new - just find out how to do it23:22
JofironsesNaphatul: I am kind of lost and don't know where to look for it23:22
NaphatulVassiliAr: then ask whoever said it was possible, you keep ignoring advice here23:22
Anonynimitywould someone also be able to tell me if this is a safe thing to do in ubuntu raring? http://www.unixmen.com/resolve-slow-connexion-when-using-wifi-in-ubuntu-1104-natty-narwhal/23:23
VassiliArno im not ignoring i just cant speak with everyone at the same time and miss messages23:23
NaphatulJofironses: lingrok.org/xref/coreutils/src/ln.c23:23
VassiliAri tried other channels and many are empty23:23
BabsSeedVassiliAr: It is possible, that doesn't mean someone here wants to spend the next 4 hours explaining how to do it. Brain surgery is also possible but most surgeons wouldn't try to give you a 101.23:23
Jofironseslet me check that23:23
Anonynimitythx Jofironses.23:24
BabsSeedVassiliAr: Try asking on SuperUser or ServerFault.23:24
Anonynimity>> GOOGLE IT!23:25
NaphatulAnonynimity: since you're asking if it's safe then for you it's probably not23:26
JofironsesNaphatul: you could check that page you sent me, line 288 there is only a reference23:26
visualiseBabsSeed, not with that attitude23:26
JofironsesNaphatul: line 322 the same23:26
AnonynimityJust wondering Naphatul, because it says it's for Natty whirl.23:26
Anonynimitybut I'm running raring.23:26
Anonynimityso... conflict?23:26
JofironsesNaphatul: I am not quite sure, but I am starting to guess it is implemented in the kernel. Could that be it?23:27
Naphatuli don't see anything distro specific there, but if you have to ask if it's safe it means you can't fix it if it breaks something23:28
BabsSeedVassiliAr: You have a case of entitlement complex unfortunately. People here are volunteers and do a good job helping but what you're asking for is a borderline case that they would have to research and use their time on.23:28
NaphatulJofironses: yes the actuall symlink is made with a system call, in the future use google/wikipedia more23:28
JofironsesNaphatul: I did use it, but could not find the answer. That is the reason I came here to ask23:29
Naphatulwhat did you search for?23:29
Jofironsessymlink source code23:29
Naphatulbecause i have no idea how it works at all and was able to find the source and how it does it in 10 seconds23:29
Jofironsessymlink source23:30
AnonynimityNot true Naphatul. I followed a guide once... said to remove the dnsmasq-base package. which *stupidly* I had done. but... then... I lost all my internet connection packages. went and downloaded every single .deb package that it was dependent upon, and, about 3 million terminal lines later, it was fixed.23:30
JofironsesNaphatul: Excellent, send me a page with the code then23:30
VassiliArno bab you said they dont want to spend 4 hours helping me - i dont want that i just want 1 Minute just 1 for them to point me in the right direction - thats what you dont seem to notice23:30
BabsSeedVassiliAr: I'm sure if someone knew what to do they would help you. I'd suggest looking into fakeroot23:30
BabsSeedVassiliAr: Or use another computer and cross compile qemu for your platform23:31
Anonynimityor just set a password... and install your generic linux headers, then install the zlib package,23:31
NaphatulJofironses: so you want the kernel code?23:31
Anonynimityand be done with it... after that, disable your pw again... ?23:31
JofironsesNaphatul: I can get it myself, but I'm not sure it will be there23:32
mike12Hi, I just installed Ubuntu 13.04 from dvd. Installation went successful. Upon bootup, the PC is trying to boot from the network.  It doesn't boot into Ubuntu (cd is removed).  Pics: http://imgur.com/a/bwcly23:32
BabsSeedJofironses: The kernel code is at kernel.org23:32
JofironsesBabsSeed: I know, thanks23:32
NaphatulJofironses: how do you mean it won't be there?23:32
Anonynimitygo to your bios settings mike1223:32
JofironsesNaphatul: I mean I don't know if symlink is implemented by the kernel23:32
mike12im in my bios23:33
Anonynimitychange your first boot option to hard drive.23:33
BabsSeedJofironses: Symlinks are implemented by the filesystem23:33
Anonynimitythen save changes and quit23:33
Anonynimitysee if that doesn't help. :)23:33
mike12i have it like that i believe23:33
mike123rd pic23:33
submanHow do I renew a network connection after moving a machine from one place to another?23:33
VassiliAri will try what anonymity said - i will add a password23:33
JofironsesBabsSeed: I'm sorry I meant, int symlink (__const char *__from, __const char *__to). Not symlinks in general23:34
submanHow to change a static ip address is maybe a better question?\23:34
Anonynimityok well then remove the network from boot order, and see what happens?23:34
VassiliAri have added your suggestion bab too23:34
JofironsesBabsSeed: Still both might be the same. Which is what I don't know23:34
VassiliArwill try them later23:34
james434mike12: Do you have Secure Boot enabled in the BIOS or anything else that might interfere?23:34
BabsSeedJofironses: Yes, symlink returns an int (I believe 0 is success), then accepts two inode references IIRC23:34
mike12cant remove it from the boot order, but you can disable network boot. Once I disable it, it no longer tries to boot from network, just says that OS not found23:34
mike12im looking in the BIOS now and I see Secure Boot enabled23:35
james434mike12: Might try to disable it to see if it helps.23:35
BabsSeedmike12: OS not found suggests the install didn't finish successfully23:35
JofironsesBabsSeed: I'm going to take a peek at kernel.org23:35
mike12secure boot disable didn't help23:35
BabsSeedJofironses: Should be in the ext4 code IIRC, been a while since I looked at that23:36
Extreminadorhow can i create a shotcut into the desktop with the enlightenment 17 ?23:36
mike12when I try to reinstall ubunut it asks me if I want to overwrite existing ubuntu23:36
mike12thats why i assumed it was installed fine23:36
mike12ill try reinstalling23:36
JofironsesBabsSeed: k23:36
Extreminadorit's says that i don have permission23:36
BabsSeedmike12: Most likely your MBR or grub didnt install correctly.23:36
BabsSeedmike12: Do you have any USB disks or other hard drives plugged in?23:36
VassiliAri cannot change it anony23:37
Ari-YangExtreminador, join #e for e17 related stuff like "creating shortcuts" etc.23:37
AnonynimityExtreminador have you tried running it as root?23:37
submanCan you at least see me?\23:37
Extreminadornop Anonynimity  not sure how can i do that, but i will join that channel23:37
Extreminadorthanks Ari-Yang23:37
apb1963_I installed a file from the repos... found out it was old... downloaded and installed current sources, apt-get removed the package... and when I run it, it tries to run the old now removed binary.  How do I rehash it so it finds the new binary?23:37
ExtreminadorAri-Yang, there is no such channel in  this server grrr23:38
Extreminadorsorry it's #e23:38
james434mike12: Did you install the 32-bit version?23:38
Extreminadori did try #e17 not #e only23:38
Extreminadorthere is yes thanks Ari-Yang23:38
FlannelExtreminador: #e exists, I just joined it.23:39
submanOk, someone just say hi23:39
james434mike12: If the reinstall doesn't work, then I would try the suggestions on this page: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UEFI23:39
mike12ill give that a shot thx23:40
JofironsesBabsSeed: Just found static int ext4_symlink(struct inode *dir,...) do you think that might be it?23:40
james434subman: If you just restart, doesn't that change anything?23:40
apb1963_answer: hash -r   thanks.23:40
JofironsesBabsSeed: at fs/ext4/namei.c23:40
ExtreminadorFlannel, yup, because at first i try #e17 and not only 3e (like i said before)23:41

lgcHi. How can I enable the swap partition permanently?23:52
Jofironseslgc: fstab23:52
randomiserWhat do you mean pernanently ?23:52
Jofironseslgc: example entry in your /etc/fstab UUID=c69df4d3-4d56-44bc-a949-93fd8bee058f none                  swap    sw                     0 023:53
lgcrandomiser: To enable it every time the system boots.23:53
randomiserThat looks good to me unless you're talking about hibernation or similar23:53
Jofironsesyou could substitute uuid=... for your path to your swap23:54
james434Jofironses: Is it safe to disable swap, though? I guess you could also change the swappiness value...23:54
randomiserAnyone here know about samba4 problems ?23:54
lgcJofironses: What's the command to obtain the uuid from a partition?23:54
Jofironsesjames434: I guess it depends  on the memory23:54
randomiserTo obtain uuid use blkid23:54
Jofironsesjames434: depends on how much you've got23:54
lgcrandomiser: what looks good to you?23:55
Jofironseslgc: you could check /dev/disk/by-uuid23:55
mike12after trying to reinstall ubuntu, it asks me to restart then this happens: http://i.imgur.com/5a3G1Uw.jpg   - and then nothing happens23:55
randomiserDiabling swap is OK in the whort term, longer term you'll see a slowdown as the block cache is impacted23:55
lgcJofironses: I will, thanks.23:55
randomiserlgc: example entry in your /etc/fstab UUID=c69df4d3-4d56-44bc-a949-93fd8bee058f none                  swap    sw                     0 023:56

OerHeksrandomiser, samba 4 is not yet available in the repo's.23:56
randomiserRe: Samba4 I can see it and install it -23:56
Jofironseslgc: Though do make sure you get the UUID for your swap and not your partition23:56
james434mike12: Did you check with the LiveCD that the hard drive's health status is OK?23:56
randomiserRe: samba4: this is a clean 1304 server install23:57
mike12james434: actually i just had to hit a key and it rebooted fine...im in ubuntu now yay23:57
lgcJofironses: I don't think I understand. You mean the uuid for the swap partition, don't you?23:57
Jofironseslgc: Correct23:57
OerHeksrandomiser, not here, 3.6.9 sorry.23:58
lgcJofironses: The swap partition is not on the /dev/disk/by-uuid directory.23:59
Jofironseslgc: just use your path then23:59
