Aliekezhibekks, http://paste.ubuntu.com/6408114/00:00
Aliekezhibekks, the end of dmesg shows errors related to radeon driver (which is IN the kernel, right ?)00:01
bekksAliekezhi: You played with oom_adj?00:02
Aliekezhibekks, no idea what is is00:02
agoraanonynimity try installing libncurses500:02
bekksAliekezhi: the radeon driver is just a module, and those messages arent critival.00:02
Anonynimitythe amd64 package?00:02
Aliekezhibekks, I removed mdadm from boot because this computer doesn't use RAID system and only has one disk00:02
agoraanonynimity there should be an i386 package00:02
Aliekezhibekks, but the problem was there before so I guess it's not related00:02
Anonynimitythere isn't all that's listed in the packages on the site is amd6400:03
agoraanonynimity you're looking at lib32ncurses500:03
agoraanonynimity http://packages.ubuntu.com/saucy/libncurses500:03
bekksAliekezhi: Then try setting the values I told you, run sudo sysctl -p afterwards - and post a free -m and ps aux immediately when you notice your computer starts to swap again. How much RAM do you have by the way?00:03
agoraim talking about libncurses500:03
Anonynimityoh, okay...00:03
agorait should work i believe00:04
Anonynimitynow to find the others... *sighs*00:04
Aliekezhibekks, 1GB00:05
bekksAliekezhi: 1GB isnt much.00:05
bekksAliekezhi: You have 2MB swap usage...00:06
Anonynimityso, instead of 32 agora, I just type in ia-libs (for example) or libz-dev00:06
bekksAliekezhi: And much too less swap for 1GB :)00:06
Anonynimityor libreadline5/libreadline600:06
Aliekezhibekks, http://paste.ubuntu.com/6408131/00:06
Aliekezhibekks, so you mean it's not swapping that much ? or then the space partition isn't big enough ?00:07
agoraanonynimity no, if you're running saucy then ia32-libs is a nonexistent package00:08
bekksAliekezhi: Actually, it isnt swapping (only 2MB) and your swap partition is far too small. For just 1GB RAM, I suggest using at least 2GB swap.00:08
bekksAliekezhi: And in addition, setting the values I told you.00:08
Anonynimitybut you can install it using the raring repo agora, right?00:08
agoraanonynimity ehm, i would imagine so. also this person has a similar problem to you: http://askubuntu.com/questions/81815/cant-install-lib32ncurses5-dev-or-ia32-libs#8181900:09
Aliekezhibekks, going to try this, I'll tell you if it doesn't fix the problem00:10
agoraanonynimity it is probably listing that as a dependency because it thinks it needs it to install other packages.  Try to install everything else first.00:11
agoraanonynimity if you do get it installed though then you shouldn't have to worry about using multiarch on each dependency that is 64-bit only00:12
Anonynimityokay, cool...00:14
oaulakhhello you all00:14
AnonynimityI had to use ia32-libs-multiarch to get that installed... but everything else aside from libreadline-dev, libreadline5-dev, libreadline6-dev libreadline-gplv2-dev went great00:14

agoraanonynimity weird00:25
bekksjackal_af1: Wrong configuration. What did you "edit" in detail, and whats the output of ifconfig -a; netstat -rn; now?00:25

diyttowilee-nilee: the usb00:41
wilee-nileediytto, nope00:41
agoraanonynimity im trying to think of another reason that the thread lists both versions of this package00:41
Aliekezhibekks, it's not random, the bug is from xorg, so I try to install a more recent version of xorg00:41
bekksAliekezhi: That would be correct if you investigated that the X server is the problem. I strongly doubt that, since you havent provided any proof of that until now :)00:41
wilee-nileediytto, Are you using a iso you downloaded separately than the ones given by unetbootin?00:41
Aliekezhibekks, xorg crash with logs00:42
bekksAliekezhi: Which bug? Do you have a launchpad bug ID? Or was your X server just killed because of too less RAM and too less swap?00:42
diyttowilee-nilee: seperate.00:42
bekksAliekezhi: Until now, there was proof of an X server bug at all.00:42
Anonynimitya reason the thread lists both versions of this package in the command line code box because: android and CM 10.1 may use 1 version to compile it, while the other, ubuntu uses to compile it...00:42
wilee-nileecool diytto the unetbootin ones have been a problem for some is all.00:42

AnonynimityI have no idea agora00:46
Aliekezhibekks, well, what are these xorg-quantal-lts and xorg-raring-lts package for ? supposed to work, right ?00:46

bekksAliekezhi: BEfore randomly replacing software, you should investigate the issue as I proposed to you.00:46
Aliekezhibekks, hum ok, so i'll try with 3.500:46
Aliekezhibekks, well the logs shows xorg crash, so upgrading xorg isn't really "random"00:47
bekkspinPoint: Depends on the PPA, and what the author of the packages in the PPA actually does.00:47
Aliekezhibekks, and you didn't answer my question00:47
wilee-nileediytto, I have never used a mac so not really, all I would do if me is look at the other usb loaders that are suggested if unstbootin seems not to work.00:47
bekksAliekezhi: Well, you didnt answer my question wether the solution provided helps and eliminates the problem or not.00:48
Anonynimityagora, how would I open libreadline-dev for editing... would I use g-edit or....?00:48
bekksAliekezhi: If it does, its not an X server bug.00:48
diyttowilee-nilee: the other option is to used the ubuntu guid, but that didn't work either00:48
Aliekezhibekks, ok I'll try a reboot with 3.5 + your options and tell you if the problem is solved00:48
agoraanonynimity wait why would you want to do that? o.O00:48
bekksAliekezhi: You told me you would do that shortly after I offered you that solution already.00:49
wilee-nileediytto, If the other computer shows the per-session boot and you have tried all its options as sometimes how the usb is read can be different I would assume it is the loading that is bad.00:49
Anonynimitybecause then I could change the file name from/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libhistory.a in the .deb package itself, and install it with a different filename00:49
wilee-nileediytto, Try a dvd00:49
diyttowilee-nilee: okay. i will go buys some CDs and try that then00:49
Anonynimitysay /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libhistory-1.a00:50
Anonynimityand the same with libreadline5-dev, could change it to libhistory-2.a00:50
wilee-nileediytto, Cjeck the iso size probably a dvd is needed, however a netload is tiny and fits on a cd and lubuntu and maybe xubuntu.00:50

diyttowilee-nilee: i just need a liveboot to transfer some data off the hard drive00:51
agoraanonynimity but how will that help? i dont think the new version would ever be referenced, but i could be wrong00:51
bekksAliekezhi: sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get install linux-image will give you the latest LTS kernel.00:51
wilee-nileediytto, I would try puppylinux it runs in root.00:51
wilee-nileeand is small00:51
diyttowilee-nilee: the windows install got screwed due to a virus and it needs a reinstall00:51

wilee-nileediytto, Ah windows, running it in admin per-chance?00:52
diyttowilee-nilee: windows cannot boot anymore00:52
Anonynimityif it's installed.... ubuntu references everything that's installed... does it not?00:52

diyttowilee-nilee: i ran an offline windows defender boot drive and it removed windows boot files00:53
agoraanonynimity well if that file specifically was referenced then it would just take the old version, but you're right if the package was referenced it would work00:53
=== parduse is now known as Guest67691
Aliekezhibekks, so according to what you saied it's not lastest LTS kernel00:54
wilee-nileediytto, That can be reloaded if just the boot files, but a infected windows is best reloaded with a clean clone or reinstall.00:54

craigbass1976how do I set a static ip via the command line?  I thought /etc/network/interfaces was what I needed to edit, but I've done it through the GUI on my laptop and checked that file.  Nothing indicating any kind of static ip.02:58

Eliyahu`thanks found it in usr03:03
craigbass1976wheatthin, 12.04.  My laptop is running mint, but I thought most everything under the hood was the same since I'm running the one that uses ubuntu repositories.  THe box I'm wanting to change is straight up ubuntu.03:03
wheatthinEliyahu`, what that did was update the database for locate. So after an installation of a program, and you need to find a file, run that, then use locate.03:04
wheatthincraigbass1976, sorry brother, but mint, although it's linux, isn't supported here.03:04

craigbass1976wheatthin, what I'm wondering is how to set the ip on an ubuntu box.  I only mentioned my laptop because I tried with the GUI to set it (and did) but nothing showed up in /etc/network/interfaces  So how to do it on the ubuntu box?03:05

craigbass1976wheatthin, that no worky...03:29
wheatthineven after updating grub menu config?03:29
wheatthincraigbass1976, once you update grub, it should boot you back into the previous kernel, and allow you to uninstall the newer kernel03:30
craigbass1976wheatthin, eh?  I didn't think grub was involved in making a static ip.  I think you've got the wrong guy03:31
wheatthincraigbass1976, my bad :/03:31
wheatthincraigbass1976, ahh yeah you were the guy with the link I said was cool03:31

kevini did see http://ubuntuhandbook.org/index.php/2013/08/install-gnome-classic-in-ubuntu-13-10/ but that package gnome-session-fallback isn't found04:08

kevinwilee-nilee: i did incremental via do-release-upgrade04:09
jgcampbell300ok ... so with that on .. i should be able to plug in and access right ? or do i need changes on ubuntu as well04:10
wilee-nileekevin, I have the shell installed the classic/fallback comes with it, unity is not really removable in any efficient way the classic uses gnome 3 so does unity from the plugin in compiz.04:10
wilee-nileejgcampbell300, Should plug and work, the phone will prompt you have the screen up.04:11

IcanhazUbuntuplzDanato: LTS releases get supported for quite awhile, major bugs to me are mostly worked out.05:26
IcanhazUbuntuplzDanato: Reg releases are only supported for 9 mo's.05:26

nibblerJordanJ2: then it has another name or is not in your current directory05:28
cfhowlettDanato, there's more commitment to keeping LTS fixed and running as opposed to the shortlife releases.  IMO.05:28

wilee-nileejnpplf, Is sdb the first read in the bioos and did you run a update-grub in I assume ubuntu on the sdb?05:38
jnpplfI didn't update-grub because I was hoping to move the partitions on sdb first05:39
jnpplfI'm booted from sda, sdb doesn't register as mounted in mtab05:39
jnpplf(according to umount)05:39
wilee-nileejnpplf, I don't know the whole story here, but is this having the dame install twicw on 2 HD or just moving it?05:39
jnpplfI'm migrating from one drive to another05:40
jnpplfI wonder if the clone copied some device ID that gparted reads and gets confused?05:40
jnpplfI used Clonezilla, FWIW05:40
wilee-nileejnpplf, Clonezilla saves the mbr all you have to do is adjust the clones to the sdb and partitions going to if you pre built them.05:41

JordanJ2How do I execute it?05:45
jnpplfwilee-nilee, what I don't get is how sda6 and sdb6 can both be mounted on /, preventing me from unmounting and moving sdb605:45
jnpplfAnd I use 'mounted' loosely as only gparted reports sdb6 as mounted. umount doesn't.05:46
wilee-nileejnpplf, So what has been moved from sda to sdb and how did you do it. clonezilla saves the mbr so cloning it is a waste of time.05:46

jnpplfI disconnected sda, booted into sdb, ran update grub, problem persists - both sda6 and sdb6 appear in gparted as mounted on /05:57
xmetali say something is grub is still pointing to sda1 (others in here can put it much better then I can :P )05:58

wilee-nileejnpplf, can you run in the sdb ubuntu sudo blkid -l with the sda not attached?05:59

jnpplfwilee-nilee, I am aware05:59
jnpplfReferring to the original drive names for your benefit :)05:59
xmetaltrue .. otherwise we all can get confused05:59
wilee-nileejnpplf, I think you have the original sda mbr in sdg and that is the issue, so we are going to load that grub on that clone to it's mbr.06:00

jnpplf"load that grub on that clone to its mbr"?06:01
jnpplfMan, having a livecd would make this handy, then I could just take out sda and resize sdb to my heart's content.06:02

jnpplfBecause I'm not in the habit of using optical media06:02
ObrienDaveworks the same on a USB06:03

jnpplfUSB presents its own challenges for me, burning a livecd would be easier ;)06:03

jnpplfI might just go burn a livecd, see if that sorts it out06:03
xmetalwell whichever is easier06:03

zack_i have no more knowledge for Ubuntu06:15
hitsujiTMOkakka no idea what its for. are you having a problem with it?06:15
zack_but i know a little06:15
zack_sorry i can't help u06:16
wilee-nileefirespeaker, harpo cheekoo...etc06:16
firespeakerzack_: did you modprobe the module?06:16
firespeakeroh, looks like the module's inserted06:16
zack_i need it06:16
firespeakerif it shows up06:16
jnpplfwilee-nilee, I'm planning to a) boot from livecd, and on 'sdb' (current drive) do the resizing. Then I'm going to disconnect it, attach 'sda', assign a new UUID, and wipe it. Then attach both, so that the old 'sda' is just uninitialized space ready for me to use for storage.06:16
firespeakersounds like it is getting detected automatically ?06:16
kakkahitsujiTMO: no problem at all, but i am having problem with my modem, is not being recognised automatically, i have to unplug and re insert modem to get it detected in the modem-manager06:17
zack_what is sdb06:17
kakkahitsujiTMO: lsusb shows, it is properly mode switching06:17
wilee-nileejnpplf, You don't have to remove the cloned drive to wipe the sda or change any uuid's there as long as the ubuntu is gone you are good.06:17
* xmetal sits back with a snack and admits he got confused awhile back06:18
wilee-nileejnpplf, You can plug the original drive in, and do the resize in the cloned and wipe the old one all in one fell swoop.06:18
jnpplfwilee-nilee, I'm concerned that if I have both drives attached with the same UUID, and I try to wipe the old drive, it will randomly take out the new one :-/06:18
serial_porti think xubuntu desktop environment is much nicer and faster than ubuntu. what do you guys think?06:18
kakkahitsujiTMO: main problem is that, i am using the same modem to connect to, suppose i did a reboot and then my modem doesn't get detected automatically, i have to eject modem from USB port and then insert it again, it works in a way like that06:18
ubottuserial_port,: Xubuntu is Ubuntu with Xfce as the desktop environment. More info at http://www.xubuntu.org/ - To install from Ubuntu: « sudo apt-get install xubuntu-desktop » - Join #xubuntu for support - See also: !Ubuntu and !Xubuntu-Channels06:19
IcanhazUbuntuplzGuys I'm watching man of steel over here. ON the scene with the fighter aircraft trying to shoot both Superman and gthe other guy06:19
kakkahitsujiTMO: i want to automate the process and extend life of USB port to some extent :D06:19
=== ragle is now known as Guest98076
wilee-nileejnpplf, Not gonna happen, just reboot and be sure grub looks right and boots to the clone and it looks like windows is there two. grub in the mbr has to have a update run to change.06:19
serial_portnever liked superman06:19
=== ragle_ is now known as ragle
kakkahitsujiTMO: i set a command usbserial in /etc/modules and it should work , but modem is not detected automatically, this is the main problem, that's it.  here are other problme also but they can be resolved later, like slow r/w speed to NTFS and slow ext4 as compared to NTFS partition, there is a big scope to improve in that areas06:22
ianorlindoes bios support usb boot?06:23
wilee-nileejnpplf, See, what ever grub bootloader you had in the cloned mbr was not the one you were running the update-grub from. Linus is specific here, for example I have 3 linux on my HD if I get a kernel upgrade on any one of them I run that command I had you run to have its grub the controlling grub in the mbr.06:24
reisionot a lot of good reasons to clone an MBR06:25
wilee-nileeianorlin, If it's new enough last 5 years or so yes.06:25
wilee-nileereisio, exactly, especially with clonezilla it does it for yah. ;)06:25
reisioclonezilla is overly complex06:26
wilee-nileeheh, I love clonezilla, but I'm sort of a psudeo noob06:26
zack_i am reading06:26
zack_i missed some words06:26
reisiorsync is all you need06:27
reisioyou can backup the partition layout and dd the boot loader if you really want to06:27
zack_are  u try update my computer06:27
xmetali have used a number of cloning tools in various os's though i admit i am a clonezilla newb here06:27
wilee-nileetrue, that is another way, I think it is a matter of taste, like a fine wine. ;)06:27
wilee-nileemany ways to clone a copy paste in gparted works, and just load the mbr.06:28
reisioexcept I know what's going on when I run rsync06:29
reisioand you've no idea what clonezilla does :p06:29
reisioI doubt anyone does06:29
wilee-nileetrue, clonezilla uses rsync06:29

ianmac1liamevanspro, Now's a good time to get used to them :)07:21
liamevansprook then show me how please :)07:21
ianmac1you just posted it:  hdiutil convert -format UDRW -o ~/path/to/target.img ~/path/to/ubuntu.iso07:22
ianmac1the /path/to is the path to the files, such as /home/user/blah/blah07:23
cfhowlettliamevanspro, open a terminal.  type in the exact command you posted.  press enter07:23
liamevansproit says no such file or directory07:23
liamevansprowhat do i replace?07:24
ianmac1liamevanspro, where is your ubuntu ISO image?07:24
liamevansproon my desktop07:24
ianmac1and what is your computer user name?07:24
liamevansproits here /Users/liamevans/Desktop/ubuntu-13.10-desktop-amd64.iso07:25
ianmac1ok, great! that is part of it. Now, where do you want to create the IMG file?07:25
liamevansproon my desktop right next to the ISO07:25

ianmac1liamevanspro, which distro are you using to do this conversion on?07:34

troulouliou_devhi there is a bug in the kernel used by ubuntu 12.04 - 13.10 that prevent me from launching it or the installer on an old atom box; any suggestions how i can install with a custom 3.12 kernel ?07:37
hitsujiTMOtroulouliou_dev: what iso are you using?07:37
troulouliou_devhitsujiTMO, tested with 13.04 and 13.10 server and desktop07:38

troulouliou_devhitsujiTMO, ha tested with 64 and 32 bits07:39

hitsujiTMOtroulouliou_dev: what processor is it exactly?07:39
troulouliou_devhitsujiTMO, it is an old atom ; need to replug the box to have the exact version; i m searching back the kernel fix i saw for 3.1207:40
Ben64how do you know its a bug thats stopping it from working07:40
reisiotroulouliou_dev: minimalcd?07:41
ianmac1troulouliou_dev, which ISO were you trying to boot on that atom box? Are you sure the ISO is for the atom arch?07:41
troulouliou_devianmac1, there isn't an atom arch ; i tested ubuntu-13.10-server-amd64.iso ; 386 ...07:42
hitsujiTMOtroulouliou_dev: if its an older atom, then you need the i386 iso.07:42
reisioas in intel atom? Yes it's x86/i386 if it's older07:42
ianmac1hitsujiTMO, I'm so glad you're here :)07:42

troulouliou_devBen64, yes searching atm :)07:44

hitsujiTMOreisio: tbh i don't think i've used an atom with vt-x. the last ones we had D2700 and N2800 which i don't think have vt-x. Didn't use any newer atoms.07:48
troulouliou_dev3.12 has fixed it or i can recompil a new kernel with CONFIG_MATOM disabled07:48

hitsujiTMOreisio: i've no idea really why you'd need vt-x on an atom tbh. Maybe for some odd embedded system alright, but in general seems odd07:53
reisiowell, theoretically it would be a cheap low power way to have vt-x07:53
reisio...except they're impossible to find for purchase :p07:53
reisioand as for vt-x, reasons for having it aren't super great, but they exist :)07:54
troulouliou_devdp_wiz, yes ; just use make-kpkg and the nvidia module will be compiled automaticcaly by dkms07:55
hitsujiTMOreisio: i'm sure the server ones come with it alright. they're just harder to get your hands on. I've only ever seen them used in prebuilt NASs that are 500-700 EUR a pop07:55
reisiooh wait, I forgot the guy who said he had a netbook with one with vt-x took it back, it didn't have :p07:56
reisiohitsujiTMO: yeah so tedious :p07:56
troulouliou_devhitsujiTMO, i guess i can always then install on another computer; rebuild the kernel and then plug back in the original box07:56
hitsujiTMOtroulouliou_dev: if there is indeed a bug in the kernel. you'd have to do a debootstap install07:56
troulouliou_devhitsujiTMO, ok thanks i m installing on the disk pluged in another computer; rebuild a kernel and then plug back the disk; should work i guess07:58
sl1ckhow can I remove lines exceeding 5 chars in a text file? I can't remember the command?07:58
sgo11hi, I am building a kernel by following https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Kernel/BuildYourOwnKernel, I am confused. after running "fakeroot debian/rules clean" and "fakeroot debian/rules editconfigs" and make some changes in menuconfig, do I still need to call "fakeroot debian/rules clean" again? Why do I need to call "clean" twice? thanks.07:59
troulouliou_devhitsujiTMO, is there still 32 bits repos for 13.10 servers ?07:59
reisiosl1ck: egrep -iv '^......'08:00
hitsujiTMOtroulouliou_dev: the desktop and server repos are the same08:00
Ari-Yangsgo11: I'm curious, why are you building your own kernel?08:04
sgo11Ari-Yang, I need to add a hid tablet driver given by the manufacturer. a .c file. they asked me to do it. otherwise, what to do?08:05
sgo11Ari-Yang, the tablet is not working without this driver, they only provide .c file and ask me to compile the kernel. I never do this before.08:06
sl1ckreisio: I found grep '^.\{X\}' file to do a better job. Thanks tho.08:08
troulouliou_devsgo11, that fakeroot method confused me too i still somehow prefer the old make-kpkg method08:08
troulouliou_devseems more natural08:08
sgo11can anyone help me on this? by following the guide, I am confused. I don't know why I need to run "clean" twice. the first time build a kernel.08:08
troulouliou_devsgo11, clean remove all the compile and temporary files08:09
troulouliou_devsgo11, it won't touch the .config file08:09
sgo11troulouliou_dev, thanks. so why do I run clean? just remove some harddisk spaces?08:10
hitsujiTMOtroulouliou_dev: btw what exactly happens when you try to boot 13.10 or 12.04 etc?08:10
troulouliou_devhitsujiTMO, i have this message : This kernel requires the following features not present on the CPU: movbe08:11
sgo11whatever. I just run it by following the guide. hopefully, it will work magically.08:11
troulouliou_devsgo11, no it ill removed all previously compiled modules / kernel and temp file08:11
sgo11troulouliou_dev, will it remove all the changes I made in "make menuconfig" step? thanks.08:12
troulouliou_devsgo11, no08:12
donnibcan somebody help me with fixing some currupted files, i get this when i do apt-get upgrade :http://pastebin.com/9bqbTH5k08:12
troulouliou_devsgo11, btw if you want to get back your actual kernel configuration before editing ; you can use make oldconfig08:12
hitsujiTMOtroulouliou_dev: hmm, then that would suggest that your cpu is not an atom since movbe is present on all atoms from day 1.08:13
hitsujiTMOtroulouliou_dev: that or it is incorrectly detecting movbe support08:13
sgo11troulouliou_dev, ok. then, it's ok to run it. maybe my question is stupid. why do I remove all previously compiled modules?08:13
troulouliou_devsgo11, to compile them back :) if they are present they won't be recompiled except if there is some source code change08:14

wilee-nileefirespeaker, what?08:28
firespeakerwilee-nilee: but no, I've updated grub a million times since then08:28

liamevansproand step 3 is not working!08:28
wilee-nileeHeh, I can easily do that.08:28

firespeakerif your problem is that you're using that tutorial, I have nfi08:30
wilee-nileefirespeaker, People mess with the kernel is why I asked,08:31
liamevansproon that site, on step 3, i enter the required info in the terminal and it says "no such file" or something08:31

Guest87104!info skype | Guest8710409:04
MrQuist"Insert" That means putting it in. "flash" Thats the typt of storage. "media" - thats some kind of a container. So what would this mean?09:04
ubottuGuest87104: Package skype does not exist in saucy09:04

liamevansproWindows games without windows! what do? OS X or Linux?09:06

Organicanarchyhey, is there any way to make Ubuntu faste?09:16
liamevansproUbunto is slowe?09:17
Organicanarchyim running a netbook with 1 gig of ram, and it seems like windows 7 actually runs faster on it09:17
lotuspsychjeOrganicanarchy: i might reccomend you installing ubuntu on an ssd09:17
ianmac1I've forced myself to use Unity for 24 hours. It's actually not as bad as I thought it would be. I hated it when it first came out, seems to have improved greatly09:17
Organicanarchylotuspsychje I want to use Ubuntu to revive this crappy laptop09:17
OxDeadC0deI think faste is french. Yes. there are ways to make the default language french.09:17
grahamsavagehi.. ok i'm getting very odd networking issues but none of the other users are experieincing them (i'm the only one running ubuntu 12.04)09:18
grahamsavagei'm unable to say ping slashdot.org... what can i do to diagonse the problem?09:18
OxDeadC0deneat, that describes your problem in such a way that people who can help can because you totally had tons of detail in it!09:18
lotuspsychjeOrganicanarchy: xubuntu and lubuntu might run faster on your netbook, but i would buy and SSD drive and install ubuntu on your netbook09:18
hitsujiTMOOrganicanarchy: install unity-tweak-tool and disable background blur in search section.   It will speed the interface up a lot09:18
Organicanarchylotuspsychje: I dont even think this thingwill take an ssd, its IDE HD only lol09:19
OrganicanarchyhitsujiTMO thanks, I might try that, but I thought ubuntu tweak was broken...09:19
lotuspsychjeOrganicanarchy: there are IDE ssd's aswell, nto as fast as sata ofcourse09:19

Organicanarchylotuspsychje, my next HD is gonna be SSD, and on a deskt09:20

ianmac1hitsujiTMO, it's also faster to keep blur turned on but change it from Active to Static09:21
ianmac1but, yeah, much faster to just turn it off09:22
hitsujiTMOianmac1: yes but i find the blur to be unnecessary anyway. that also disables the blur on the alt-tab switcher09:22

Organicanarchyis there any other full featured linux distro that's faster than Ubuntu09:40
Organicanarchyand easy?09:40
OrganicanarchyI've used Fedora and Mint before, but im looking for something else thats fast as hell09:40
AlanBellfast for what?09:40
OrganicanarchyAlanBell fast for a crappy 1gb of ram netbook that's a few years old09:41
cfhowlettOrganicanarchy, xubuntu/lubuntu or optimized for older / lower spec machines such as yours09:41
DJonesOrganicanarchy: It might be worth looking at Lubuntu or Xubuntu which have lower hardware requirements09:41
OrganicanarchyDJones cfhowlett thanks, I'llcheck those out, upgrading this machine just isn't really worth the money09:42
AlanBellget an ssd or more ram, or a new computer, that will be easier than trying to squeeze more out of that hardware09:42
DJones!lubuntu | Organicanarchy09:42
ubottuOrganicanarchy: lubuntu 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.09:42
MrQuistOrganicanarchy: It might be worth looking at Puppy, since its really small.09:42
DJones!xubuntu | Organicanarchy09:42
ubottuOrganicanarchy: Xubuntu is Ubuntu with Xfce as the desktop environment. More info at http://www.xubuntu.org/ - To install from Ubuntu: « sudo apt-get install xubuntu-desktop » - Join #xubuntu for support - See also: !Ubuntu and !Xubuntu-Channels09:42
OrganicanarchyMrQuist, i have used puppy and really don't like it at all09:42
Organicanarchyhaha sorry09:42
MrQuisti really like it for the small stuff :)09:43
DJonesMrQuist: !puppy (if there was a factoid) would probably say the same as !mint etc about not being supported here09:43
Organicanarchyas far as tiny OSes go its great09:43
ianmac1hitsujiTMO, perfect, thank you again09:43
MrQuistI know i was joking DJones09:43
MrQuistjust checing if you were awake :)09:43
Organicanarchyim buying a new computer soon, desktop, gonna buid it for gaming and totally installing Ubuntu/wine09:45
OxDeadC0deOrganicanarchy: the best way to get 'fast as hell', is a minimal distro compiled directly for the target device. Ubuntu and others can do this, but are setup for general purpose use - and have to work with all devices. The compiled 64-bit deb needs to work on both amd and intel, so it has no amd or intel specific instructions (Even though compilers CAN generate those left and right)09:45
donnibhi, i need some help with starting Apache and it fails missing a file, i get  Cannot load /usr/lib/apache2/modules/libphp5.so into server: libqdbm.so.14: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory09:45
ianmac1hitsujiTMO, hey I can set the icon size too.. now I can cram more icons in there :)09:46
OrganicanarchyOxDeadC0de at some point I think im going to try to get arch on here09:46
OxDeadC0deOrganicanarchy: so if you want the best 'fast as hell' distro, you will need to compile it yourself. that will take a lot of time to do, and if you need a new app it and whatever deps you don't already have will need compiled.09:46
OxDeadC0deyea that's what I was hinting at ;)09:46
OrganicanarchyOxDeadC0de yeah, either arch or Gentoo09:46
queretaroHi, by default my rc.local file is filled with a do_start function and some more things. How shall I edit it? In other distros I used it's always empty by default09:47
OxDeadC0deOrganicanarchy: In my uhh, internet life, I haven't heard anyone mention gentoo in quite a long while. Arch is a common name though (G+ circles?..... meh.)09:48
OrganicanarchyOxDeadC0de what about installing ubuntu server then just installing the xfce packages?09:48
OxDeadC0deOrganicanarchy: that will get you minimal stuff sure, but none of it will have the special instructions provided by the processor (And even with an atom, there are a large number.)09:48
kriss_Uhmm somhow i think ive gotten malware in my chromium.. when i click a link on some websites i get a porn popup09:49
OxDeadC0deeven SSE may be disabled so that the pacakage can run on 486's just to be backward compatible.09:49

OxDeadC0deOrganicanarchy: I thought all the ram was made in china anyway? Wouldn't that make it cheaper to buy there?09:53
cfhowlettKriss remove doesn't mean purge09:53
DJonesCiSense: Yes you can09:53
* OxDeadC0de gets censored.09:53
CiSenseDJones, thanks09:53
Kriss3dcfhowlett, so i should manually purge with apt-get ?09:54
OrganicanarchyOxDeadC0de im just gonna tinker with this thing until I have enough to buy a new computer09:54
cfhowlettKriss3d, and then run autoremove to clear out orphans09:54
DJonesCiSense: You just need to have space for a seperate partition, or have to create one by shrinking a current one during the install, if you do the latter just make sure you have a backup of anything important just case shrinking a partition causes a problem09:54
DJonesCiSense: You can use the same swap partition for the 2nd install09:55
Kriss3dso sudo apt-get autoremove chromium ?09:55
Organicanarchyanother dumb question: is it possible to dual boot, then have ubuntu partition take over windows 7'09:56

Kriss3dcfhowlett,  ty09:56
OxDeadC0deOrganicanarchy: what do you mean 'take over windows 7'?09:57
OrganicanarchyKriss3d i mean dual boot, copy all my info over, then stretch my ubuntu partition to overwrite windows 709:57
cfhowlettKriss3d, you could also try running chromium in incognito mode.  I've set both my browsers to default to incognito - then again, I'm paranoid09:57
Organicanarchyyou too, OxDeadC0de09:57
mjaykOrganicanarchy: you can format your windows partition inside ubuntu then have a seperate free partition09:58
OxDeadC0deresize the linux partition and delete the windows one.. once you decide to erase windows.09:58
OxDeadC0deor you can mount the windows partition in linux, and use it for storage.09:58
OxDeadC0deand keep windows intact for booting later.09:58
OrganicanarchyOxDeadC0de can I do that from gparted? make my XP partiition smaller and whatnot09:58
Kriss3dcfhowlett, thats why im trying to get my hands on a working ISO for Attack vector - kali with everything running via tor by default09:59
OxDeadC0depretty sure it supports resize these days, but, last time I tried resizing a windows partition outside of windows disk manager, it killed windows thinking it was hijacked to a different systems since the partition size was different.09:59

David321Nope, no packages found with xorg (i'm very new to using linux, but I have some expierence with DOS)10:08
Kriss3dcfhowlett, thats.. odd.. i did purge.. autoremove and after installing chromium AGAIN.. it still remembers the last pr0nsite i was on..10:08
Kriss3dDavid321, i used to be quite experienced in DOS as well but linux is NOTHING like Dos..10:09

Kriss3dthough in Windows when i go CLI i always accidently type ls instead of dir10:09
David321I have tried this, it results into getting bit further but then black screen10:09

OxDeadC0destop using chromium and use chrome, and use incognito tabs for your pr0n?10:12
OxDeadC0dethey used to be Kriss3d10:12
cfhowlettKriss3d, sounds like it could be a chromium hack ..10:12
Organicanarchyyeah, whast the diff between chromium and chrome? isnt chrome just chromium with google's name on it?10:12
Kriss3dcfhowlett,  yeah.. but mostly its odd that chromium keeps remembering my last site after purge10:13
Kriss3dOrganicanarchy,  yes it is10:13
OxDeadC0deprobably just some temp file in some ./.chromium/ (or similar) folder that saves a url that was forgotten to be added to the 'purge' list10:13

Zorkysgo11:  ask your question again12:17
sgo11Zorky, hi, I install a driver by recompiling my kernel. Now, I boot into the new kernel. how can I check if my driver is included or not? currently, I don't have the device by hand. so just want to check if the driver is installed or not. thanks.12:17
totalnewbieAnyway, when I go to Choose Application, I cant find Transmission anywhere. Where are applications stored, in terms of files and folders? I cant search for it, either.12:17
Zorkysgo11:  ugf. sorry can't help you with that one12:18
totalnewbieMaybe the problem is with Firefox, I think, because I should be able to download the .torrent file? But I dont know.12:18
Danato<Zorky> no, it says that i cant create more than 4 primary partitions12:18
ZorkyDanato:  is there freespace behind the 4th partition12:18
ActionParsniptotalnewbie: tell it to use /usr/bin/transmission-gtk12:18
sgo11Zorky, no worries. :) thanks.12:19
Danato<Zorky> well its right bellow the 2nd partition12:19

Danatono problem12:19
totalnewbieActionParsnip: How do I do that? I dont have any box where I can enter that information, in either the window that comes up giving me the option to Choose Application, or the Choose App window itself.12:20
ZorkyDanato:  I think your problem lies in. there is no unallocated space between partition 4 and the next partition. but you have unallocated space some place else. maybe behind partition 3. the space behind partition 3 can't be used to extend partition 4. or the space infront of partition 4.12:21
totalnewbieActionParsnip: Im dumb, never mind, figured out. Thanks a lot!12:22
Danato<auronandace> http://imagebin.org/27685212:23
ZorkyDanato:  read what i wrote before. that just answered why you can't extend the sd4 partition12:24
=== Thorium220 is now known as Thor|Away
Danato<Zorky> so is there a way to move the unallocated space?12:24
auronandaceDanato: if you want to make sda4 bigger you'll need to move sad3 first12:24
ZorkyDanato:  no. you need to remove partition in order to do that12:24
ZorkyDanato:  or i might be wrong it seems12:24
RoryDanato: You can move the partition to the left, but expect it to take a long time12:25
Danatonow that I think about it, ive had a software that move data from a place to another, moving the unallocated space to where i want, but dont remember its name12:27
auronandaceDanato: you don't move the space, you move the partitions12:28
RoryDanato: I'm reasonably sure gparted can move your /dev/sda3 partition to the left into that gap, thus freeing up space for you to expand your /dev/sda412:28
LopeI've got a script: /home/lope/scripts/backup. Its in my path. I can run it from anywhere. but I want to run it with sudo. when I try run it with sudo it says command not found.12:28
=== ubuntu is now known as Guest57361
DanatoRory: how can i do that?12:29
marloubuntu 'failed to start program - path or permissions wrong' ?12:29
marlofrom QtCreator12:29
RoryLope: It needs to be in the root user's $PATH as well. Consider copying it to the /usr/local/bin folder12:29
DanatoRory: ah nvm got it ;)12:29
Danatoyeah it can be done12:29
RoryDanato: Like I said though, expect it to take a while, not like growing a partition which is semi-instant12:30
Lopesudo echo $PATH shows that /home/lope/scripts is in my $PATH. sudo zsh; echo $PATH; also shows /home/lope/scripts is in my path. "sudo zsh; backup;" works. but "sudo backup" from lope says command not found.12:30
LopeRory: please see my last line. it IS in root's path.12:30
DanatoRory: thats ok, thanks guys12:30
hitsujiTMOLope $PATH is evaluated before the command is executed. thats your $PATH not roots path12:31
ZorkyDanato:  it will properly take multiple hours to do.12:31
RoryLope: There are a few workarounds here, but I still recommend, if you want that script to be available system-wide, putting it in /usr/local/bin http://stackoverflow.com/questions/257616/sudo-changes-path-why12:32
LopehitsujiTMO: please take note I also went into a root zsh and echo'd $PATH.12:32
ZorkyDanato:  if you cancel the process meanwhile you move. it will corrupt the partition. i suggest you set it to do it over night12:32
davidwhrm.... latest chrome update do something funky?12:33
LopeRory: but "sudo zsh; backup" works. so why doesn't "sudo backup" work ?12:33
RoryLope: "sudo zsh; echo $PATH" doesn't do that by the way12:33
Danato<Zorky> its night time here, I wouldnt mind, but its giving me some errors, i cant proceed12:33
RoryLope: Do "sudo zsh" and then in the shell that starts, run "echo $PATH"12:33
hitsujiTMOLope; before ANYTHING you wrote in that is executed $PATH is evaluated. that DID NOT echo roots path!12:33
ZorkyDanato:  what errors?12:34
hitsujiTMOLope. write a script with "echo $PATH"  and then run that script with sudo to see what roots path is12:35
Danato<Zorky> it doesnt tell anyhing important, jst that there was an error, the details jst say that it couldnt move the partition to the left12:37
hitsujiTMOLope: or at least: run sudo -i.  and then echo $PATH12:37
LopeRory: I did run the commands separately I was just putting the semi colon inbetween because this is IRC and I wanted to write it shorthand.12:37
Danato<Zorky>  ah wait12:37
LopeI ran the command echo $PATH as root@mypc, promise.12:38
Danato<Zorky>  its a bunch of errors saying things like Cluster accounting failed at (#######): missing cluster in $Bitmap12:39
ZorkyDanato:  im sorry i can't help with that. maybe someone else here can12:39
hitsujiTMOLope: how exactly did you add the path to roots $PATH ?12:40
Danato<Zorky>  no problems, thanks anyways12:40
tpw_phoneHey all. How do I boot into some sort if single user mode with UEFI? Has a bit of a power incident and want to make sure my disks are consistent. Tried holding and tapping both ESC and left shift, but no dice. Im not convinced I actually have grub12:40
hitsujiTMOtpw_phone: have you tried right shift?12:43
LopehitsujiTMO: okay I took your advice and created a bash script that echos path and then ran that with sudo.12:43
Lope/home/lope/scripts was NOT in that path.12:43
tpw_phonehitsujiTMO: I can, but I was specifically told left shift12:43
Lopeweird how sudo zsh and then echo $PATH was giving me lope's $PATH even though the shell said root@mypc.12:43
sgo11let me change my question. how to check all hid drivers installed in the system?12:43
hitsujiTMOtpw_phone: it seems to differ. I've seen documentation the says the correct key is right shift for grub 2. but esc is what does it for me. it seems to be very inconsistent12:44
bartzyWhy aptitude install (with no packages as arguments) wants to install stuff from time to time ?12:44
=== panda-pc is now known as sergios
tpw_phoneAgain thoug, I don't seem to be using grub12:45
ZorkyHow would i set up a shared folder in /home/sharedfoldernamehere that 2 users can enter from a shortcut and save files into from their desktops12:46
gordonjcpZorky: remotely?12:46
Zorkyno locally12:46
gordonjcpmake it group-writeable12:46
gordonjcpadd both users to the same group12:46
gordonjcpZorky: bonus points for using umask to set it so that files are also automatically group-writeable12:47
Zorkygordonjcp:  they are. my problem lies in. i open libreoffice. i want to save my file into this folder. but i can't see the folder shortcut on the desktop12:47
gordonjcpZorky: symlink12:47
Zorkygordonjcp:  please explain12:48
gordonjcpZorky: a symlink, symbolic link, is a special type of file that represents the path to another file12:48
Zorkygordonjcp:  thanks :) how would i create this folder then?12:49
gordonjcpZorky: well create a folder as normal, ensure it's group-writeable12:49
tpw_phoneYeah, pretty sure im not using grub12:49
gordonjcpcreate a group for both users12:49
gordonjcpadd both users to that group *and make sure they log out and log back in*12:49
hitsujiTMOLope: now, if you want to have access to that as root in an interactiver shell, you should symlink that file in /usr/local/sbin . if you're using a script (such as in cron ) you should specify the full path as cron jobs and some other scripts will not have a $PATH set12:49
gordonjcpZorky: at this point, both users can write to files /home/shared/12:50
Zorkygordonjcp:  yes. they allready can. but i want them to access that folder from their desktops via a shortcut12:50
gordonjcpZorky: now for both users, create a symbolic link from that directory to one on their desktop12:51
gordonjcpZorky: something like "ln -s /home/shared ~/Desktop/"12:51
hitsujiTMOZorky: create a group for that share. chmod g+ws that sharedfolder. add the group to the users (they need to relog for that group to be picked up) and then ln -s a shorkcut to that folder12:51
Celahirhello, i've got an IRC server, with email nickserv registstration, how do i setup Sendmail correctly to get it working?  :x im fairly new @ ubuntu12:52
hitsujiTMOCelahir: you can just install sendmail ( i think the package is sendmail-bin ) but postfix is generally the preferred method now https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Postfix    it can be a bit difficult to get them up and running such that the emails being sent are not going to spam12:57
Celahirhmm okay12:58
ZorkyhitsujiTMO:  how do i add a group with groupadd that have the same rw as the shared folder.?12:58

Al__hitsujiTMO, I have no idea.  Even though I have been using ubuntu versions for 5 years, I don't really know what you mean.13:25
hitsujiTMOal__: linux allows you to jumpt between different terminal sessions. you can do this with the <ctrl> + <alt> + <fKeys> combination. Xorg runs on tty7 to go swith to that use the key combination <ctrl> + <alt> + <f7>      does that bring up the graphical xorg session?13:27
DannyButtermanDoes someone know why a 10.04 64 cannot automount SD cards anymore ? I have to double click the icon for it to open. It used to mount and open a nautilus window automatically.13:27

HarmageddonHi! I was here a few days ago to solve a graphics error during ubuntu installation (worked with the "nomodeset" option). This worked fine for the installation and first start, but now, when I start Ubuntu, a window shows during boot, saying "The system is running in low-graphics mode. Your screen, graphics card, and input device settings could not be detected correctly. You will need to configure these yourself"13:35
HarmageddonWhen I select "run in low-graphics mode for just one session", there's a new window telling me to wait one minute while the screen restarts. When I press ok in this window, I'm back to the ubuntu boot screen, the red dots are going on and on, but I'm not getting any further.13:35

Al__okay, I will type dmesg | pastebinit && pastebinit /var/log/xorg.0.log13:43
Zorkycfhowlett_:  indeed. but lets put this example up. canonical is making a ubuntu phone. it runs unity. it will be much easier to teach people to use the OS if it has the same interface on both clients13:43
cfhowlett_Zorky, true ...13:44
hitsujiTMOAl__: thats a capital X in /var/log/Xorg.0.log13:44
ferzmjayk: it was a generic disk failure.13:44

DanatohitsujiTMO: its not showing errors, jst a bunch of what seems like tests that keep going on15:47
bartoloOerHeks: i need to use aptitude in the script and I can't if I put it there15:47
hitsujiTMODanato: the issue is with alsa so15:48
hitsujiTMODanato: ctrl + c to cancel it15:48
bartoloprobably the best solution is to use anacron15:48
hitsujiTMODanato: can you run alsamixer and makes sure nothing important is musted (such as master)15:48
bartoloso i could run it periodically15:48
DanatohitsujiTMO: I already reinstalled alsa15:49
hitsujiTMODanato: that still might not fix a broken config. Could also be the driver itself15:49
hitsujiTMODanato: did the sound work before?15:49
DanatohitsujiTMO: yeah it was working before, and yesterday it stopped working, and after some updates it worked again, and stopped working today15:50
BluesKajDanato. intel hda driver ?15:50
hitsujiTMODanato: pastebin: lspci -k15:51
DanatohitsujiTMO: oh and what did you mean by musted?15:51
hitsujiTMODanato: Muted sorry15:52

g0tchahey guys, im trying to install ffmpeg on ubuntu server and libvpx, i installed 'yasm' but when i try to ./configure libvpx, it complains about Yasm not available15:58
g0tchaanyone can help me out with this?15:58
halfbeingthanks strit15:58
Nox_404hi, I got a problem on a 12.4.3 server install, how can i fix this : apt-setup-udeb succeeded but requested to be left unconfigured15:59
strithalfbeing, I used Kazam before, but it broke on my machine when I upgraded to 13.10.15:59
Roryg0tcha: You can install ffmpeg without compiling, using the Ubuntu repositories and apt-get15:59
John525i have another question, how do i install cairo dock on ubuntu 12.1015:59
ActionParsnipg0tcha: would you need yasm-dev package15:59
ActionParsnip!info cairo-dock15:59
ubottucairo-dock (source: cairo-dock): Light and eye-candy dock to launch your programs (metapackage). In component universe, is optional. Version 3.3.1-0ubuntu1 (saucy), package size 6 kB, installed size 45 kB15:59
ActionParsnipJohn525: it's in the universe repo15:59
halfbeingstrit, is the problem that it doesn't save most of your recordings?15:59
DanatohitsujiTMO: ill take a screenshot16:00
John525so install using apt-get?16:00
g0tchaRory, would ffmpeg work as it should be if i install it using the repositories? cuz i need it for a local website im using16:00
ActionParsnipJohn525: yes16:00
g0tchaActionParsnip, i dont see yasm-dev in the repo16:00
hitsujiTMODanato: its a text interface. you can just copy + paste the text16:00
ActionParsnipJohn525: or software centre if you desire16:00
strithalfbeing, nope, on my machine it doesn't even record. it crashes a few seconds after I start it, and it finished switching between yellow and red dots in the indicator. :)16:00
ActionParsnip!find yasm16:01
ubottuFound: yasm16:01
DanatohitsujiTMO: it looks really weird when i paste it16:01
halfbeingpopey, i'll do that when i get a chance!16:01
ActionParsnipg0tcha: not sure then, is there not a binary package for what you need?16:01
hitsujiTMODanato: ahh ok16:01
BluesKajDanato. yes , but you have the intel hda sound diver  , it's probly not loaded after you update/upgrade , a commoin bug with those drivers , in the terminal run , sudo modprobe snd_hda_intel , the command prompt will return immediately if the driver loads properly , then you'll have to reboot16:01
g0tchaActionParsnip, well, im following this https://trac.ffmpeg.org/wiki/UbuntuCompilationGuide16:01
hitsujiTMOBluesKaj: if it shows up under lspci -k then it's loaded16:02
BluesKajhitsujiTMO. was that the command he used for the above post ?16:02
hitsujiTMOBluesKaj: lspci -k16:03
halfbeingstrit :)16:03
BluesKajwell ,he should run the modprobe command anyway , it might work16:03
BluesKajhitsujiTMO. lspci -k may list the available driver but that doesn't mean it 's loading16:04
DanatohitsujiTMO: http://oi44.tinypic.com/21opo28.jpg16:05
BluesKajDanato. your speaker output is muted16:06
PPHwhat irc client should I use on ubuntu? I need to get notifications when I get a private message or when someone say my name.16:06
hitsujiTMOBluesKaj: sorry you're right. man lspci says -l shows drivers loaded for device and capable of being loaded for a device16:06
Danato<BluesKaj> thats what I said16:06
gordonjcpPPH: I like irssi16:06
grep0rPPH, there are many you can try xchat16:07
DanatohitsujiTMO:  the command seemed to work, at least it ddnt give me any error16:07
PPHgordonjcp: well that's what Im using actually but I don't have any notifications16:07
BluesKajDanato. use the M key to unmute it then the up arrow key to increase the volume16:07
PPHgrep0r: well I'll try it16:07
PPHgrep0r: thx16:07
hitsujiTMODanato: speaker is muted. move over it and hit (m) to unmute it. move arrows up and down to change the level16:07
stritPPH, I use Xchat. :)16:08
gordonjcpPPH: should see someone highlight, with the channel number turning purple16:08
renebarbosa#buffer 616:09
Danato<BluesKaj> where do I press M?16:09
hitsujiTMODanato: when speaker is highlighted in red16:10
grep0rPPH, xchat supports the feature you want, just from what i remember (not sure if still) xchat-gnome dont have some xchat's official features16:10
hitsujiTMODanato: then you's see the MM changing to 0016:10
PPHgrep0r: Ok thanks16:10
Danato<hitsujiTMO> ah i ddnt know i could navigate on that16:10
BluesKajDanato. use the < and> arrow keys to navigate in alsamixer to the speaker volume control , then press M , the increase the volume to 90% or so witht up arrow key16:11

padrinoI've got a question...18:07
Guest58721what's the question?18:07
padrinoMy laptop wouldn't boot at all before, I'm not sure why but I think it's a major hard drive failure. I'm currently running Tails OS from a USB and it seems to be working okay (atleast it's working) but I want to ask, if I'm booting Tails OS from a USB and it's working safely, should Ubuntu also work18:08
bazhangpadrino, why not try and see18:08
DanatoUbutuers who want to watch the 14.04 Convergence Plans live go to http://ubuntuonair.com/ now18:08
Guest58721I think running from usb is like running from live CD in Ram. Try to see if you can open a terminal and run badblocks. You might have to mount sda1/hda1 first.18:09
high_fiverDanato, thanks!18:09
padrinobazhang I came on here a while ago asking the same Q and I was told that if it's a hard drive failure, booting Ubuntu could cause the whole system to brick itself18:09
bazhangpadrino, then include that in your initial question next time18:10

Guest58721Anyone correct me if I'm wrong about mounting or unmounting HDD before badblocks please18:10
padrinobazhang okay, sorry. I just wanted to see people's takes on it18:10
padrinoGuest58721 I don't even understand what that means, haha :p18:10
gvobadblocks needs to be run on an unmounted FS.18:11
FourFireok so I'm saying " sudo apt-clone clone /dev/sda2 --source /dev/sda3" meaning that I want to place my clone file in sda2 (old windows partition D: ) and the clone file is to be of sda3 (my Linux)18:11
Guest58721badblocks scanns the blocks on your harddrive to see if they're readable. If not, it makes a note of it. If you get (I/O) input/output errors, then you'll probably need a new harddrive.18:11
padrinoFourFire when I booted up Tails OS it said there was an error with sda3 but I just let it load and it seems to be working18:12
gvoFourFire: Please don't do that.18:12

ubottuphirestalker: Ubuntu, like any other Linux distribution, has built-in firewall capabilities. The firewall is managed using the 'ufw' command - see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UFW | GUI frontends such as Gufw also exist. | An alternative to ufw is the 'iptables' command - See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/IptablesHowTo18:54
vt102On 12.04.3, I have an app which can't connect to a server, says "getaddrinfo: Name or service not known".  However, I can use nslookup and dig and it resolves.  straceing the app, it says "28148 connect(5, {sa_family=AF_FILE, path="/var/run/avahi-daemon/socket...28148 write(5, "RESOLVE-HOSTNAME-IPV4 snlab032.s".."  Never had DNS not "just work"-- do I need to configure avahi somehow?18:55

__blastyalright so im trying to 'sudo apt-get install libgl1-mesa-dev:i386', but it wont let me18:56
KomiaPoikatrijntje: if i'm sure which is the usb disc nothing can go wrong systemwide right18:56
vt102My guess is avahi is redirecting out to the Internet somehow-- perhaps daisy.ubuntu.com?  THis is a local DNS name, so if it's bypassing by local DNS servers, it won't resolve.18:56
__blastyprobably because it's a bad idea(tm) anyone have pointers for getting 32bit gl libs going on 64bit ubuntu 12.10 ?18:56

gvouncle_ben: right click on the speaker and bring up the mixer.  Make sure the settings are right in the hardware tab and in the input tab make sure it's not muted and the volume is set to a reasonable level.19:10
hitsujiTMOAl__: that should reinstall the corrupted theme. if that was the cause of the greeter breaking then it should fix the issue. fingers crossed and can you try and reboot again19:11
faryshtahi. having problems with efi. the ubuntu installation dies almost at the end when trying to install grub.19:11

Al__hitsujiTMO: thanks19:13
linuxfan8650pad, I would try to re start the install19:14
KomiaPoikaubuntu install boots, yay19:14
padrinolinuxfan8650 how would I go about that? Is it safe to just power off computer?19:15
trijntjepadrino: are you sure its not your RAM thats faulty, rather than the harddisk?19:15
linuxfan8650ya just pull the plug19:15
padrinotrijjntje maybe, not sure. But running from USB (no installation) was working fine19:15
KomiaPoikalinuxfan8650: pulling the plug on laptop doesn't do much19:15
gvopadrino: Go for it.19:16
linuxfan8650Ture, I don't use laptops only desktops19:16
padrinoJust gonna run from USB without installation and use it for browsing the web only19:16
hitsujiTMOAl__: so after the reboot if its the same issue, we can try reinstalling lightdm.19:16
Al__hitsujiTMO: How would I go back to what it is now?  What would be the command?  You see, the tech guy may be mad and make me put it back to how it was!19:16
gvopadrino The only other option is to use it as a door stop.19:16
trijntjepadrino: if you hold shift during start from usb, you get a menu where you can choose 'memtest'. Run that for a couple of hours, if you get any errors your RAM is bad19:16
padrinogvo lol19:17
hitsujiTMOal__: you haven't actually changed anything. just reinstalled the theme19:17
Al__hitsujiTMO: okay...19:17
padrinotrijntje yeah I've ran that before and there were a few errors. How much would it cost to replace RAM approx?19:17
linuxfan8650I have a problem with dirthering graphics and puple and green youtube videos19:17
gvopadrino I suggest maybe you attempt to put puppy linux or dsl on there to prove that it'll run linux.19:17
gvopadrino: It can cost as much as a new laptop when they don't make the memory any longer.19:18
trijntjepadrino: no idea, but if the ram is faulty ubuntu wont install/run properly19:18
padrinogvo it ran Tails OS fine which is a Linux distro19:18
gvoFrom disk?19:18
trijntjepadrino: you can run memtest again, write down the adresses of the ba19:18
padrinogvo nope, from USB19:18
faryshtai have an efi problem. I try to install ubuntu but grub can't get installed at the end and I get an error that kills the installation19:18
KomiaPoikahow do i encrypt hard drive at install time?19:19
gvopadrino: I'm thinking it's just not enought of a system to run Ubuntu maybe.19:19
hitsujiTMOal__ have you tried the reboot?19:19
trijntje padrino; of the bad blocks, and use 'badram' to exclude those. Then you can still use the laptop19:19
UuserInstalled ubuntu 13.04 on a laptop with Windows 8, but grub doesn't appear..any ideas?19:19
linuxfan8650Komia, there is a check box you check to encrypt the disk19:19
Br0wn__Uuser, change boot options in bios19:19
padrinogvo I'm only running Lubuntu but yeah19:20
linuxfan8650Komia, that happens during the install19:20
gvopadrino: that should be OK19:20
padrinogvo what is the lightest of the light version? Something similar to Tails but not with all the privacy shit19:20
gvopadrino: I agree with the others that bad ram will give you fits.19:20
gvopadrino: DSL and PUppy are the lightest.19:20
KomiaPoikalinuxfan8650: don't see such boxes19:21
trijntjepadrino: you cant run anything with bad ram, unless you tell your linux to not use the damaged adresses19:21
padrinotrijntje how was I able to run Tails?19:21
UuserI can boot but I've to choose the boot options or was it boot device not remember everytime... why I don't get the usual grub screen?19:21
KomiaPoikai'm at installation type: erase disk... or "something else"19:21
padrinoI was talking to you on Tails about 20 minutes ago from the dodgy laptop19:21
Al__yes, it rebooted!19:22
gvopadrino: Because you are running using part of the ram as disk and it's possible that the part of ram the OS is running from isn't bad.19:22
Al__hitsujiTMO: yes, it rebooted!19:22
faryshtai have an efi problem. I try to install ubuntu but grub can't get installed at the end and I get an error that kills the installation19:22
trijntjepadrino: if the damaged ram is high up, you will only access it when you use a lot of memory. So lightweight stuff might go well for a while before it crashes19:22
hitsujiTMOal__ you get black screen still?19:22
padrinotrijntje ah ok, thanks for the explanation :-)19:22
linuxfan8650Komia is should be on the screen after you slect to wipe disk and then it offers to enrypet the dislk19:22
padrinotrijntje so with bad RAM there's nothing I can do?19:22
arunpandiyan-murhi all19:23
Al__hitsujiTMO: nope.19:23
KomiaPoikalinuxfan8650: ok19:23
hitsujiTMOal__ is it back to normal?19:23
Al__hitsujiTMO: this looks good19:23
arunpandiyan-murI wanna switch over to ubuntu from linux mint19:23
jmgk.query arunpandiyan-mur19:23
arunpandiyan-murI got the iso in hard drive19:23
UuserBrown: [00:51] (Uuser) I can boot but I've to choose the boot options or was it boot device not remember everytime... why I don't get the usual grub screen?19:23
KomiaPoikalinuxfan8650: you mean after timezone selection or do i have to go into advanced partitioning?19:23
Al__hitsujiTMO: it did only do the black command screen once in a while.  randomly.19:23
trijntjepadrino: yes there is, but you will need to know where the damage is. For example, if you have 2G ram and the damage is at 1.8, tell ubuntu you only have 1.7 and you'll be fine ;)19:24
Al__hitsujiTMO: hopefully it will never do it again!19:24
Al__hitsujiTMO: So, now one final question....19:24
padrinotrijntje alright thanks, would it be possible for you to tell me how to check where the bad RAM is?19:24
linuxfan8650KomiaPoika yes after time zones, but not on Advanced Partitioning19:24
KomiaPoikalinuxfan8650: i see: encrypt home folder option, but how do i go encrypt the entire disk?19:24
linuxfan8650I don't you can do the whole disk19:25
KomiaPoikawith alternate install in text mode you used to be able to19:25
UuserMaybe use truecrypt then19:25
trijntjepadrino: you will need to run memtest again, and write down where the damage is19:26
faryshtai have an efi problem. I try to install ubuntu but grub can't get installed at the end and I get an error that kills the installation19:26
Al__hitsujiTMO: I have several other computers, some of which also have the problem.  To fix them, all I need to do is the reinstall shimmer-themes ????19:26
trijntjepadrino: the thing you are looking for is 'badram', if you google that with ubuntu you get plenty of hits: http://askubuntu.com/questions/151843/exclude-bad-ram-bytes19:26
KomiaPoikaUuser: truecrypt can't encrypt a disk at install time19:27
Al__hitsujiTMO: Just this one line sudo apt-get install --reinstall shimmer-themes19:27
trijntjeKomiaPoika: You have to do that by hand I think, choose 'advanced partitioning' or something like that19:27
hitsujiTMOal__ if its all the same issue then yes. Did the guy try to customise the theme?19:27
monokromeOy. Does anyone have an idea why a file named 'core' continues to pop up in my home directory? I delete it daily.19:27
UuserI meant after installation19:27
linuxfan8650sudo apt-get remove windows19:27
hitsujiTMOAl__: yes that command will reinstall the theme19:27
arunpandiyan-murI Updated the Grub Menu Entry to install The UBUNTU , but it doesnt work19:28
arunpandiyan-murAny Idea guys19:28
padrinoError Code 0146. Msg: 2000-014619:28

faryshtadoes ubuntu support efi installation?19:29
linuxfan8650Faryshta yes19:29
padrinolinuxfan8650 so might not be the RAM?19:29
linuxfan8650SMART is always your HDD.19:30
trijntjepadrino: if memtest gives errors, its always the RAM. Maybe your hd is broke as well though19:30
linuxfan8650padrino how old is this laptop19:30
padrinotrijntje haven't done memtest, just did the diagnostics test19:30
hitsujiTMOal__: try that command on the other computers and see if it fixes them so. He should learn to thoroughly test his cusomisations before deploying them :P19:30

Guest46026dreamy_: synaptic used to come with old versions of ubuntu. In newer ubuntu versions synaptic doesnt comes by default. You can install it through the software center though.

hitsujiTMONeurotoxin: live cd and mount the hdd is the only other option19:55
zykotick9gvo: i'm just saying, using the wrong terminology can cause problems - down the road.  we should call things by there real names, don't you thing?19:55
RoryNeurotoxin: You could boot from a Live CD; you need root access to write that file19:55
gvoNeurotoxin: what hitsujiTMO said.19:55
gvozykotick9: Good luck with that.  I agree for what it's worth.  ;)19:55
Neurotoxinokk, Rory do i have root access from live cd?19:55
faryshtahitsujiTMO: the first time I created a customized partition with /home separated and encrypted. then i tried several times with default installation no encryption19:56
gvoNeurotoxin: Usually if not direct, from sudo without a password.19:56
Neurotoxinokk thx19:56
hitsujiTMOfaryshta: did you create an efi system partition?19:56
Neurotoxinsometimes i think linux is neverending fail,,,, try to fix something... sudo breaks... try to fix sudo... recovery mode doesnt work....19:57
hitsujiTMOfaryshta: what version of ubuntu is this 13.10 or 12.04?19:57
faryshtahitsujiTMO: yes. the first time i did, from then on the default installed created it19:57
faryshtahitsujiTMO: but the problem is with grub-efi which can't get installed19:57
hitsujiTMONeurotoxin: visudo is there so you don't break sudoers file19:57
RoryNeurotoxin: What did you do to break sudo?19:57
faryshtahitsujiTMO: 13.1019:57
hitsujiTMOfaryshta:you mean grub-efi-amd64?19:58
faryshtahitsujiTMO: yes19:58
NeurotoxinRory followed a tutorial even on ubuntuwiki to execute a script with sudo rights in autostart..... broke everything19:58
gvoNeurotoxin: If you use visudo be sure to edit the mounted files system sudoers file, not the one on the CD.19:58
hitsujiTMOfaryshta: is the problem that it needs to download the package from the net but cant because of the proxy?19:58
faryshtahitsujiTMO: http://paste.ofcode.org/3bSWVj7y9jmAXJ5UvGFhfa19:59
gvoNeurotoxin: Don't just type visudo19:59
faryshtahitsujiTMO: I have no idea. I just get an error that grub-efi couldn't be installed19:59
faryshtahitsujiTMO: if you want i can restart the all process and copy/paste the error here. it will take me 10 mins19:59
hitsujiTMOfaryshta: please do. it definately created the efi system partition at least20:00
faryshtaok back in 10 mins20:00
faryshtahitsujiTMO: now the install program doesn't start :/20:01
hitsujiTMO:P just restart the disk again :P20:01
faryshtahitsujiTMO: if I do it will take me half hour  to set all the network settings again20:02
hitsujiTMOfaryshta: ok 2 secs then20:02
tambuGuys, I'm a bit baffled on my ubuntu box I have networking IP statically assigned to eth0 and I have "dns-nameservers" in the /etc/network/interfaces file.. am I missing something.. I have no DNS resolution at all. I can ping any IPs I want but it's acting like I have no DNS server setup.20:02
hitsujiTMOfaryshta: we'll see if we can finish the install manually20:02
gvotambu ls -l /etc/resolv.conf20:03
RoryNeurotoxin: What tutorial were you following, and can you link it so I can check it's OK? What part broke sudo?20:03
faryshtaon hitsujiTMO: no use. i will reboot  the live usb and connect again20:04
hitsujiTMOfaryshta: can you pastebin the outputs of: sudo blkid             and: mount20:04
hitsujiTMOfaryshta: wait20:04
faryshtahitsujiTMO: ok20:04
tambugvo: that is where I would have normally set it but now it says DO NOT EDIT THIS FILE by hand.. and from what I read online ti says to use /etc/network/interfaces file20:04
faryshtahitsujiTMO: wut'20:04
hitsujiTMOfaryshta: if its just grub then we can install that20:04
faryshtahitsujiTMO: ok how?20:04
gvotambu Is it a real file or a link?20:04
hitsujiTMOfaryshta: chroot20:04
Rorytambu: The nameservers go in /etc/resolvconf/resolv.conf.d/base20:05
Neurotoxinhmmm try to find it20:05
Rorytambu: At least that's where I've put mine and it seems to work20:05
tambugvo: oh i see lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 29 Sep 11  2012 /etc/resolv.conf -> ../run/resolvconf/resolv.conf20:05
hitsujiTMOfaryshta: can you pastebin the outputs of: sudo blkid             and: mount20:05
OerHekstambu, try " sudo dpkg-reconfigure resolvconf "and reboot20:05
faryshtahitsujiTMO: otionne question. if i reboot all the programs installed on liveusb will be lost?20:05
lapiontambu, is an existing network address not vailable for private networks20:05
hitsujiTMOfaryshta: yes they will be lost20:05
