sh0thi guys can please someone help me with all this thing UEFI/Secureboot wINDOWS 8 and Ubuntu? I have installed disabling secureboot ubuntu on a partition next to Windows 8. Now I need to make it boot so I restarted a live usb ubuntu and from there i am running boot-repair which gets stuck on the initial phase when it says: Scanning systems(os-prober)....00:01
hitsujiTMOsonofrustuptwist: do you have any instances of nautilus open?00:02
sonofrustuptwisthitsujiTMO:  nautilus. i have no idea what that is. i did not open any programs on this laptop, it is only running the LiveCD to install, so only Terminal and Firefox are open (knowingly)00:03
DF3D2am I basically stuck doing this method since I copied all the files from one ubuntu install and used chroot etc to fix it so it will boot? I now want to dd an image of the bootable usb stick and then clone that to several other sticks. But I will face incorrect UUID's if I don't do this chroot method every time right ?00:03

hitsujiTMODF3D2: this is how i install OS's https://github.com/hitsuji/steamos/blob/master/install.sh :P00:04

FevixHello, I'm trying to dd a .iso on my desktop onto a usb stick. What's the path to the desktop for use in commands?00:04
DF3D2hitsujiTMO, I surely don't need anything that complicated00:04
sonofrustuptwisthitsujiTMO:  where are we?00:05
hitsujiTMOsonofrustuptwist: nautilus is the file manager. in the all terminals run: cd ~00:05
FevixI've tried /home/<username>/desktop/filename.iso, I've tried /desktop/filename.iso, I've made absolute certain the filename is spelled right00:06
PiciFevix: typically the desktop folder is Desktop, not desktop.00:06
hitsujiTMOFevix: its Desktop not desktop00:06
bpromptFevix:    you  mean you dunno where the .iso is?00:06
sonofrustuptwisthitsujiTMO:  i had earlier looked at the drives on the windows side, so i guess that would explain that00:06

DF3D2TJ-, oh wow thanks man00:10
sonofrustuptwisthitsujiTMO: http://paste.ubuntu.com/6817424/00:11
DF3D2TJ-, did you see my question earlier about if this was basically my only option?00:11
Fevixbprompt: Nevermind, I didn't realize you were telling me to do that to the file00:11
FevixTHanks, dd is working now00:11
DF3D2based on the circumstances of what im trying to do00:11
sh0tantifa, it seems that if i remove the usb stick while the live is executing and i run boot-repair it doesn't hang and it allows me to apply the changes that boot-repair suggests. Now the problem is that i still cannot boot Ubuntu but windows 8 boots instead00:11
hitsujiTMOsonofrustuptwist: sudo partprobe /dev/sda00:11
TJ-DF3D2: no, I've been away mostly... what are you trying to do?00:11
Fevix... I think. There's no activity.00:11
TJ-Fevix: dd reports nothing until it finishes, unless you send the process a USR1 signal00:12
=== zz_megabitdragon is now known as megabitdragon
sonofrustuptwisthitsujiTMO:  done00:12
DF3D2TJ-, so basically I had an lubuntu install where I had gotten amd drivers + cgminer to work correctly -- i tried to do this again on another machine and could never get it to work and drove my self basically insane -- so I went back and copied all the files from the working ubuntu install to a USB stick and made it bootable ( you helped with that yesterday) I want to clone this usb stick to several other usb sticks but the UUIDS for gr00:12
DF3D2ub etc won't match if I just do that right?00:12
TJ-Fevix: In another terminal you can do "sudo kill -USR1 $(pidof dd)"00:12
bpromptFevix:     don't be mislead by "dd", it shows no progress bar per se... how big is the .iso ?00:13
Fevixbprompt: A bit under 1GB00:13
FevixIt's the 13.10 64 bit .iso.00:14
hitsujiTMOTJ-: which loop did you setup again? /dev/loop1 ?00:14
TJ-DF3D2: If you strictly 'cloned' the entire image the UUIDs would be identical, but if you created new file-systems and copied files into them, then the UUIDs would be different00:14
bpromptFevix:   anyhow, depending on hardware and size being written over, "dd" can take about 5mins or so... say for me it took 10mins to write a 4gbs image over to a 1.1 usb stick, it took about 5mins to a 2.0 usb stick00:14
sonofrustuptwisthitsujiTMO: ???00:14
TJ-hitsujiTMO: Yes (better do a "cat /proc/partitions" to ensure the kernel has accepted the revised MBR)00:14
=== Ubuntu1 is now known as chuckycheese
DF3D2TJ-, so basically my easiest option is to DD the image to the new usb sticks, run the chroot script and edit /etc/fstab to specify the correct UUID of the new device right?00:15
hitsujiTMOsonofrustuptwist: cat /proc/partitions00:15
hitsujiTMOsonofrustuptwist: cat /proc/partitions | pastebinit00:15
FevixTHis is a craptop right now, though. I tried the usb-creator-kde thing but that completely failed.00:15
bpromptFevix:    but "dd" has no progress bar per se, what I do is, I check the data transfers with somehing like "system monitor" and it shows that so much of this is being writtten over, plus I can tell too by looking at my cpu meter00:15
TJ-DF3D2: the UUIDs, if you cloned the entire file-systems, will be identical00:15
chuckycheesethis may not be the right place, I am looking for an offline translator,  I have a user manual in PDF that I need to translate to English,  Google Translate is not working00:16
DF3D2TJ-, but the UUID of the new usb sticks will be differen't won't they ?00:16
bpromptFevix:   ... really?   hmm I've used kde usb-creator many times, works for me00:16
DF3D2or will they be the same if it is the same model/brand/size stick ?00:16
DF3D2TJ-, as in grub will be looking for the wrong UUID ?00:16
TJ-DF3D2: the only thing that has a UUID is the file-systems, not the entire device or the physical device00:16
DF3D2OHHH thats right00:16
matachiWhat does the < mean in "< /dev/urandom tr -dc A-Za-z0-9"?00:16

antifa<sh0t> have you tryed   grub-install /dev/hdx00:17
hitsujiTMOmatachi: pipe the output or whats on the right to "-" left of <00:17
DF3D2TJ-, I was over thinking it --- incorrectly thinking it more aptly -- I hadn't even tried to clone it yet since i'm currently running it on the first target machine and it's kind of production since it makes me a decent bit of cash a day mining :-D00:17
sh0tantifa, no but i am not sure that will work00:18
Fevixisolinux.bin missing or corrupt00:18
Fevix... SHould I be worried?00:18
TJ-DF3D2: It does make sense to change UUIDs in installed systems in case you ever need to connect one hard disk into another system that is also cloned, you can change UUIDs of file-systems - its quite a standard practice for managed landscapes with auto-deployment tools00:18
icerootwhich is the lightest webbrowser from the repos? (gui)00:18
DF3D2TJ-, these machines run off one USB stick only, so I don't think that will be a concern00:18
matachihitsujiTMO: But "/dev/urandom < tr -dc A-Za-z0-9" doesn't work? Shoudn't that use what's to the right as input?00:19
bpromptFevix:    I'd think it's just a misdowloaded file00:19
TJ-DF3D2: OK, so only if you plug 2 USB sticks into the same system... because then you'll have conflicting LABELs and UUIDs00:19
antifa<sh0t> sory dude this are the things I tried, donno what to advice u further00:19

littlejimHello. I hope some one may be able to assist. I have been trying to share a folder on my Ubuntu 12.04 PC over a home network to PCs running Win 8.1 - but no success. The Win machines can see the folder but can open it - permissions denied. I have tried everything in the support forums - inc modifying the config file in Samba. It is a permissions problem on the Ubuntu side I think. Most obliged for any thoughts.00:20
matachihitsujiTMO: "< /dev/urandom tr -dc A-Za-z0-9" works fine, I'm just trying to understand why < should be placed where it is00:20

DF3D2just fail to mount the second stick?00:21
TJ-DF3D2: if you're not booting from them, udev will just fail to create the symlinks for the second device.00:21
TJ-DF3D2: if you're booting from them, I'm not sure what grub would do... be an interesting experiment00:22
hitsujiTMOmatachi: because the output of the command to the right of < """/dev/urandom tr -dc A-Za-z0-9""" you are piping back in place of the "-" to left left of <          you seem to be not showing the full line of code00:22
DF3D2TJ-, haha yeah I wonder what grub would do my self, theoretically it would just pick one and boot from it I'd think? Since it technically can find the UUID it want00:22
TJ-DF3D2: but it won't know which UUID is correct.00:22
matachihitsujiTMO: "< /dev/urandom tr -dc A-Za-z0-9 | head -c 50; echo" is the full line of code00:23

sonofrustuptwisthitsujiTMO: http://paste.ubuntu.com/6817487/00:24
TJ-DF3D2: PXE is the way to go, much easier to maintain a central image and update it00:24
TJ-hitsujiTMO: sonofrustuptwist: Yay! Looking excellent there00:24
DF3D2TJ-, thing is, they don't have any updating to do really once they are set and working -- They will run the exact same image except slightly different config files for one program based on silicon lottery basically00:24
DF3D2TJ-, basically when mining each video card has a best core/mem clock ratio00:25
DF3D2and they are all slightly different00:25
hitsujiTMOsonofrustuptwist: now. to copy over the data00:25
TJ-DF3D2: But with a PXE with TFTP + NFS, you can update the images with bug and security fixes using your chroot and "apt-get upgrade" really easily, in fact you can script it.00:25
sonofrustuptwisthitsujiTMO: and i thought we were done, lol00:26
TJ-DF3D2: You can configure TFTP and NFS so each PC loads a slightly different configuration too00:26
sonofrustuptwisthitsujiTMO: brb bathroom break!!!!!00:26
hitsujiTMOsonofrustuptwist: cool00:26
DF3D2TJ-, yeah that part about a different image is handy -- as far as apt-get update I don't want to update them at all once they are working00:26
glitsj16rawfodog: how-to for netflix --> http://www.webupd8.org/2013/08/pipelight-use-silverlight-in-your-linux.html00:27
DF3D2TJ-, updating gives me no benefit for these machines -- they do exactly 1 task00:27
TJ-DF3D2: That's what I do here, I have a rack with mobos stacked in it of various types so I can test build and run kernels and core libraries automatically on a wide variety of hardware00:27
hitsujiTMOTJ-: you're happy with?: sudo dd if=/dev/loop1 bs=$((512 * 2048 * 100)) skip=4061 of=/dev/sda500:27

FevixI just want a single f***ing download of Ubuntu that doesn't give me problems the day I get it, is that too much to ask?00:27
DF3D2TJ-, I won't lie I've looked at some guides for PXE and it seems really complicated to me :-\ I know it isn't but I have a higher learning curve some times00:27
TJ-hitsujiTMO: If you're using the loopback device you don't need any skip00:28
TJ-hitsujiTMO: the start of the loopback device is the start of the FS so its just "sudo dd if=/dev/loop1 of=/dev/sda5"00:28

Fevixgudenau: I'm not sure, but I think that option formats the disk, regardless of the state of other OS's, not just uninstalling other Ubuntu installs.01:01
Beldargudenau, What tools do you have related to W7, an install disk? Have you looked closely with a live ubuntu cd to make sure it is really gone?01:01

TJ-jonsparks: Did you recently upgrade  openssh-server on the server? Usually that is caused by an upgrade issue. See e.g. http://www.howtoforge.com/debian-ubuntu-unable-to-make-backup-link-of-usr-bin-sshd-before-installing-new-version-operation-not-permitted01:28
mikubuntuheavyammo: you might want to ask in #hardware about good battery life -- ubuntu will run on almost any computer with at least 256 of ram, the more the better naturally. buy three older matching laptops and keep 2 extra batteries charged at all times for more battery time.  got a couple old dells for $25 each01:28

puppylinux2loki_: u can use help menu in libreoffice. its very vast and well documented.02:34
chaotixloki_, also, best thing you can do is just ask the question and if someone knows they will answer  :)02:35
loki_puppylinux2: I will have a look.  The problem is I don't know what it would be called in libreoffice.  each program seems to use different terminology and that ends up making finding exactly what I am looking for quite difficult.02:35
mikubuntusince this session began, my fan has been intermittently turning on and off -- usually its 'always on' -- wonder whats up with that02:35
loki_chaotix: aye, that I did.  about an hour ago or so.  so I was just sort of bumping it :D02:35
chaotixloki_, i see....  there are diff people herre now though, who wont know what question your bumbing02:36
chaotixmy rule of thumb is to ask every 15 minutes02:36
puppylinux2loki_: open libreoffice and press F1 key to open help menu, and type about ur topic.02:36
loki_so my question is, what is the easiest way to rip a blu-ray movie to m4v in Ubuntu?02:36
puppylinux2give it a try.02:36
loki_puppylinux2: will give it a go.  I may have found the answer elsewhere :D02:37
chaotixloki_, you can always convert it after you rip it with ffmpeg i think02:37
loki_chaotix: you mean rip to ISO first?02:37
chaotixi have never ripped a blu ray02:37
chaotixlet me look02:37
puppylinux2loki_ u can try the openshot for doing such tasks.02:38
loki_chaotix: oh.  here is what I typically do.  In windows I have anydvd HD.  I rip the blu ray with that.  I then pass it through handbrake and rip it to an m4v with the settings I want.02:38
puppylinux2loki_ do u have openshot editor.02:38
loki_puppylinux2: I thought openshot was designed for authoring blu-rays from video files you took with a video camera, etc.?02:39
loki_I do.02:39
puppylinux2loki_ u can use openshot in many ways, joining,cutting, merging all type of works.02:40
puppylinux2may be it supports ripping feature also, the newer version.02:40
chaotixmakemkv looks like it can rip the blu ray for you02:40
loki_puppylinux2: I have never heard of anyone using openshot to take a blu-ray movie and turn it in to an M4V for local streaming.  I will have a look.02:40
loki_chaotix: won't that rip it to an MKV that would then need to be remuxed with handbrake?02:41
chaotixcant you do the converting after you rip it?  why does it have to be in one shot, loki_ ?02:41
chaotixloki_, rip it using whatever02:42
puppylinux2loki_ : the openshot can do conversion work also, may be it can help you. it can do any type of conversion.02:42

=== zz_megabitdragon is now known as megabitdragon
loki_chaotix: I currently do that.  I rip about 7 or 8 of my movies to an external HDD, then I add them all the the handbrake queue.  the problem comes about when certain movies don't really rip well.  disney movies come to mind.  they put a bunch of junk in the BDMV folder.02:43

loki_heh :D02:43

chaotixi would listen to his suggestion first02:44

puppylinux2loller: are your wall electric plugs all ok, any power surge can do that.03:48

lolleraside from turning off all unneded modules, how can i prevent the bios from touching ubuntu03:52
lollerthat is basically the question03:52
lolleri guess..03:52
gaffaloller; you could replace your bios with an open source one :)03:53
lollerThat sounds excellent03:53
puppylinux2loller: u can't do it , an os is always under the contrl of Bios, but Bios is always free of os.03:53

gaffai don't know how far they are. you should google around. maybe check the gnu.org and fsf.org websites.03:54
puppylinux2loller: if u flash with the BIOS , or install incorrect BIOS , ur laptop will be dead, and only thing u can do after it is replacing the motherboard.03:54
Beldarqueonda, Mint has there own support is all.03:55
puppylinux2flashing a BIOS is critical job.03:55
lolleri feel using an open bios would be critical to removing gov backdoor to your commercial pc03:55
gaffawell, it can be saved.. it's not like it is short circuitet03:56
Beldarqueonda, I would check the md5sum that sounds wrong, and find there support.03:56
PandaPandaloller I'm not good with Ubuntu but I know it has native tools to report everything going on with your computer. U tried looking at one of those?03:56

I have downloaded Adobe Flash Player from the software too. I can't set any settings there, because the settings are distorted in Adobe Flash Player.04:29
Beldaruser_, you installed the flash-plugin?04:30
user_yes from the software center04:31
user_at least it said I did. Is there a way to see if it's there?04:31
Beldaruser_, You might try the lubuntu-restricted-extras that install flash other codecs and ms fonts, you can turn down the fonts if you want.04:31
user_now, how do I get lubuntu-restricted-extras? Don't know linux too well.04:32
Beldaruser_, in the terminal sudo apt-get install lubuntu-restricted-extras04:33
user_o.k that's all?04:33
gr33n7007huser_,  try this sudo apt-get install flashplugin-nonfree && sudo update-flashplugin-nonfree --install04:33
Beldaruser_, To install yes, hard to say the exact problem but this is a good start.04:33

BeldarGallomimia, That is a projected opinion, keep it off the channel.04:55
anonee_mousewell never gonna go there again04:55
user_Increase the swap partition? I thought it was best to decrease swap for an older computer?04:55

hitsujiTMOuser_: are you trying to play flash vids?05:09
Gallomimiauhm. help. my mouse cursor is invisible!05:09

Gallomimiai just rebooted my system after a nasty hang up. i was opening system prefs after changing my monitor's connection. my video card hates me :(05:10
user_ummm you know, like YouTube or Wimp, any online videos.05:10
hitsujiTMOloki__: unzip /path/to/dir/*.zip05:10
Gallomimiaif you computer is too slow to play youtube uninstall flash and rely upon html5 or use keepvid.com to download your videos and play them with mplayer or vlc or similar05:10

loki__jrib: for file in *.zip; do echo "$file"; done <- that was your example.  should $file be changed to something else?05:15
jribloki__: probably not05:15
hitsujiTMOuser_: i think its just your cpu/gpu mix can't candle the vid05:16
user_o.k. I think so. It's seems kinda old. Thanks for your time though!05:16
loki__jrib: so if I paste that, it should work as long as I am in the directory with the zip files?05:16
jribloki__: it will echo back the names of zip files in the current directory05:17
loki__that it did05:17
jribloki__: if you want to "unzip" instead of "echo" the file...05:18

apb1963Guest59544: DHCP in your router refers to your local area network.  If /etc/network/interfaces is set to use DHCP... and you're getting an IP address.... then you're good to go.07:28
Guest59544apb1963, I don't want it to work that way though07:29
Guest59544it doesn't even make sense07:29
apb1963Guest59544: what way do you want it to work?07:29
Guest59544it's supposed to be static07:29
Guest59544so i'd set an ip manually07:29
apb1963Guest59544: so change "dhcp" to "static" in the /etc/network/interfaces file.07:30
Guest59544if my router is set to turn dhcp off how is it pulling an ip anyway07:30

=== hdevalence is now known as hdevalence|away
apb1963Guest59544: Once again...DHCP on your router refers to your LAN.  If you had multiple devices on your LAN that need to be allocated IPs... then you turn DHCP on your router on.07:32
apb1963Guest59544: If you do not have multiple devices then the setting has no effect.07:32
Guest59544I do have multiple devices07:33
hitsujiTMODureiken: what do you mean gives nothing?07:33
apb1963Guest59544: Then you need to provide them with static IPs if you have DHCP turned off on your router.07:33
Guest59544apparently not07:33
Guest59544maybe this router is just stupid because it shows them all as static -- but they all have ips I didnt assign07:33
DureikenhistujiTMO : on my ubuntu machine I didnt use pastebin07:33
hitsujiTMOGuest59544: is this a desktop or server?07:34
apb1963Guest59544: If all of your devices have IPs, then your ISP is probablyi allocating them.  Consider yourself lucky.  My ISP makes me pay $5 per extra IP.07:34
Guest59544it's not my isp they are LAN ip's07:34

ubottuPackages for bechmarking your system include bonnie++ (for drives), glmark2 (for 3D graphics), netperf (for networking), mbw (for memory) - For more, issue the !terminal command « apt-cache search benchmark » - See also !testing11:24
ubottuTo test your hardware, you can use the packages memtest86+ (for memory, can be started from the !GRUB boot menu), smartmontools (for hard drives), cpuburn (which MIGHT damage your processor if cooling is not adequate!). Additionally, lm-sensors can be useful to monitor temperatures and fan speeds - See also !benchmark11:24
lotuspsychjeWiz_KeeD: also try phoronix test suite11:24
SeveasFily: a bug is a when a part of ubuntu does not behave as it should. Of course "behaving as it should" is up for interpretation, so if you see behaviour that you think is wrong, check with others and maybe report it as a bug.11:24

Linoronhi all, I have tried to make UEFI-bootable Live USB sticks for both Ubuntu and LinuxMint, but cannot seem to get any of them WRITEABLE and BOOTable in UEFI (secureboot is disabled).

Using ubuntu=startup-disk=creator or the gtk version, available from the default repositories.14:45

TJ-DF3D2: To guard against such things we usually surround both in double-quotes... at the top of lesspipe it sets LESSFILE=lessfile, and BASENAME to the basename of the script14:52
DF3D2TJ-, so should those order of commands work or no?14:53
TJ-DF3D2: In the chroot, have you customised anything, especially shell scripts or includes?14:54
TJ-DF3D2: Because, as "man chroot" says... "If no command is given, run '${SHELL} -i' (default: '/bin/sh -i')" ... so /bin/sh is being run inside the chroot14:55
DF3D2TJ-, im getting that command when I do it manually and no I haven't customized anything14:56

mikubuntualso, i could not find a place to read the properties of the directory -- what will happen if the copy process fills the 16gb usb limit and still has more data?15:02

mikubuntuis there a good file manager with a strong 'tagging' feature, rather than putting things into hundreds of folders?15:03
TJ-DF3D2: when the shell starts in interactive mode it reads various scripts ... one of those scripts is using 'lesspipe' which is resulting in that error.15:03
mikubuntufile management is a drag -- no wonder i've never paid much attention to it15:03
DF3D2TJ-, all i rly need to do is tell grub to use a different UUID, can I do that once grub is booted somehow?15:04

DF3D2TJ-, I have a grub rescue prompt15:05

DF3D2im seeing it from booting it15:05
DF3D2i really need this fixed15:05
TJ-DF3D2: so there is something wrong with the images15:05
DF3D2hmm how so?15:06
mikubuntuTJ-: ok, ok, ok --- i get it. can you give me some tips on how to do it right/better? as i think about it, tagging seems to be a more effective way to identify files, but i don't see any such feature in my file manager (which i guess is thunar?)15:07
DF3D2TJ-, okay im gonna start over -- gonna copy the files from the working ubuntu install on to the usb from a live-usb, then ill try to chroot and install grub again from there15:08

ShawnRiskHow come every process bar popup window (Update Cache, Install Driver - Openprinting and more) freezes in Ubuntu 13.10?15:09
TJ-mikubuntu: Operating system files are generally organised in a well-defined hierarchy; you can imagine the directory names as tags. User files is up to the user :)15:10
mikubuntuis it possible to stop the copy process (cancel) and then resume later? as i watch the progress, i'm seeing lots of files i don't need that i prolly should delete before resaving to a new computer15:10
mikubuntuTJ-: now you want me to imagine things15:10
DF3D2TJ-, is there a better method? I'd use dd but the source drive is much bigger15:11
TJ-mikubuntu: There may be a tagging file manager but I'm not aware of one, because I mostly work with files from a shell15:11
TJ-DF3D2: Your current approach ought to be OK if you're copying everything into the clone15:12
DF3D2TJ-, yeah im copying all the files15:13
MASbrohello im getting false readings when transfering files in ubuntu15:13
ShawnRiskany ideas on my problem?15:14
DF3D2TJ-, is there no way to use dd to clone from a larger drive to a smaller, like tell it to stop the image at a certain size ?15:14
TJ-DF3D2: I'm wondering if there's some USB corruption going on15:14
TJ-DF3D2: not in the way you want, no. 'dd' is for block device or single-file duplication15:15
MASbrou transfer lets say a gb file and it goes blazin fast according to the progress bar and done. open the file and its only partially copied or corrupted15:15
DF3D2TJ-, ok15:16
ShawnRiskHow come every process bar popup window (Update Cache, Install Driver - Openprinting and more) freezes in Ubuntu 13.10?15:16
yeatsMASbro: do the checksums match between the original and the copy?15:16
yeatsMASbro: and what method of transfer are you using?15:17
MASbrojust drag and drop from a folder to my flash disk. btw it only happens on a usb stick in fat32 or ntfs. no probs with an external hdd15:17
llutzMASbro: you copy files to a different filesystem? use "sync" mount-option to prevent this15:17
mikubuntui have a feeling this stick is going to overload -- just saw that i have at least one dvd os image in my desktop thats at least 2gb right there -- i should have deleted it. again anyone -- can i cancel the copy process, and then resume, or will i have to reformat and start all over?15:17
MASbrowell ubuntu is ext4 and my flash disk is either fat 32 or ntfs. it never happens on my external hdd which is ntfs15:18
TJ-mikubuntu: If you can identify the copying process you could TERMinate it15:19
yeatsMASbro: fat32 has some file transfer limitations you might be hitting against15:20
TJ-mikubuntu: If it is doing I/O then "sudo iotop" will show the busiest processes and their process IDs (PID), which you can use to do "sudo kill -TERM $PID"15:20
mikubuntuTJ-: ehhh, i gotta run out -- i'll see what it's done when i get back i guess -- ty, tj15:20

DF3D2TJ-, in your script ?15:34
DF3D2TJ-, I thought it chroot to the correct dir and that would work15:35
TJ-DF3D2: you need to understand the commands you're using. The reason I don't put device names into script examples is so you can't accidentally destroy your own system by blind copying. Read "man grub-install"15:36

TJ-ShawnRisk: none15:37

ShawnRiskWiz_KeeD: tried this: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Boot-Repair15:40
Wiz_KeeDhow could I launch it if i cannot access live-cd or the ubuntu installation?15:40
rustuptwistTJ-:  compaq laptop is up and running (edubuntu 12.04.03) thanks to you and Hit... for the assist last night!15:40
TJ-Wiz_KeeD: "does not start anymore" is not going to help us help you. You need to specify the exact steps and the exact responses you see. For boot issues, have you edited the boot entry at start-up and removed "quiet splash" and added "nomodeset debug" so you can reveal more information15:41
TJ-rustuptwist: Well done :)15:41
Wiz_KeeDTJ-, no but I have tried in recovery mode where there is no splash and it stops at Loading Ramdisk, I have specified this15:41
Wiz_KeeDlive-cd just goes blank, and then I tried launching it in non-uefi mode and it failed loading the sound-card and the cd-rom (cd-rom isn't present since I have a hdd caddy installed)15:42
TJ-Wiz_KeeD: How about the live image, you can edit the options for that too. If both are failing doesn't that suggest a problem with the hardware itself? Have you made any BIOS/firmware configuration changes?15:42
ShawnRiskWiz_KeeD: read this: http://askubuntu.com/questions/129116/12-04-wont-boot-from-live-cd-or-usb15:42

Wiz_KeeDTJ-, i have not, windows loads fine, no updates, just a forced power-out because windows was hanging15:42
Wiz_KeeDAlso installed some drivers that let me access the ext4 drives of ubuntu in windows if that has any relevance15:43
DF3D2TJ-, im not getting it I have grub-install --target=/dev/device15:43
DF3D2but it's still trying to do the wrong device15:43
Balzyehi there, can someone quickly explain me how linux display a simple text shell, without gui? does it still use an Xserver?15:43
TJ-rustuptwist: You created the maximum number of "Primary" partitions in the Master Boot Record (MBR). In future, first you should create an "Extended partition" in the MBR, and then create subsequent partitions as "Logical" (which means they are placed in the Extended partition, not the MBR - which only has 4 slots.15:44
TJ-DF3D2: "grub-install /dev/sdX" is all you need15:44
ShawnRiskBalzy: why not try ctrl+alt+f1?15:44

ShawnRiskWiz_KeeD: did you read that link?15:44
Wiz_KeeDyes, I have dual-boot15:45
TJ-Wiz_KeeD: If the live image won't start then something is amiss... possible data corruption if that's a USB device, but can't be if it is a DVD15:45

ShawnRiskWiz_KeeD: anything changed?15:46
=== ganesh is now known as Guest33715
TJ-Wiz_KeeD: Hmm, could the power-out have caused the BIOS/firmware settings to change? I've seen that happen some years ago, and a simple BIOS "load defaults" solved it15:47

Wiz_KeeDThey swaped it with one from another manufacturer, and it's much slower, I have sent a complaint to Asus since I don't think this is normal to replace standard parts with what's lieing around, but my question is WHY is it limited to that speed when it says it can run in N mode too?16:07
ShawnRiskOcter: ask away16:08

kenny1achernya: hi16:27
BeldarShawnRisk, I have read every post you have made, no idea what your problem is. ;)16:27
kenny1Dutn: hy man16:28
BeldarShawnRisk, If I was in your sistuation, I would make another account in users to see if this happens there, and or in the guest account or a live cd to check if it may be the account you are using and caused by tweaking it.16:30
ShawnRiskBeldar: okay16:30
BeldarShawnRisk, The user app can add and remove new accounts with a gui and they can be another admin with sudo access or a limited account.16:31

=== zz_anmar is now known as anmar
jhutchin1plibby2: If it's hardware raid, it should present the array as a single drive to the OS, so partitioning doesn't really matter.16:56
jhutchin1plibby2: Depending on what you're using the system for, partitioning will usually end up with you running out of space on one partition while another has plenty of room.16:57
jhutchin1plibby2: I recommend one partition + swap unless you know where you're data is going to accumulate.16:57

DF3D2pvl1, so how do I go about setting this up?17:19
=== giuseppe is now known as Guest1136
pvl1DF3D2: just run xinit and amdcccle so you can run overdrive17:19
k1lsh0t: and make sure the video card driver moduls are build. so the linux-headers are installed17:20
DF3D2pvl1, cgminer sets my clocks17:20

DJonesluca: Probably best asking in the #ubuntu+1 which is the support channel for it at the moment, people there are probably most likely to be able to help17:22
morsnowski14.04 ?17:22
pvl1DF3D2: xinit is just the init for X, no config files needed. first see if that will load, then you can make a session script to load cgminer17:22
DF3D2pvl1, it loads17:22
DF3D2so I need to get xinit to run each time, and get rid of lightdm17:22
DF3D2without borking17:22
plibby2Creates the Intel Storage Technology a Software or a Hardware RAID?17:22
pvl1xinit = init X but put .xinitrc in ~ of whatever user will be mining/starting x17:23
lucaDJones, thanks17:23
DF3D2pvl1, yeah problem is cgminer runs but it doesn't seem to actually do anything17:23
pvl1DF3D2: exec cgminer17:23
DF3D2I wonder why17:23
pvl1DF3D2: are you on a mining pool, did u connect to one17:23

lucamorsnowski, yes it is a version not stable yet. I'd like to launch it on my old laptop17:24
DF3D2lol yes man I've got a config file and a startup scriot17:24
pvl1just making sure17:24
hitsujiTMODF3D2: ~/.xinitrc not ~/xinitrc17:24
sh0tk1l, how do i check that? and also i'd like to stress that the login form is provided to me on an X session but when it accepts the credentials it hangs somehow on a black screen where only the mous it showed. Anyway .xsession.errors says something like: xio: FATAL Io ERROR 11 (Resource temporarily unavailable) on X server ":0" after 4073 requests (4073 known processed) with 0 events remainig.17:24
DF3D2but cgminer seems to hang when I do it this way17:24
morsnowskioh ok17:24
DF3D2yeah ~/.xinitrc17:24
DF3D2its working -- but cgminer isnt17:24
pvl1either way, how long have u run cgminer before saying it dont work17:24

ericPif i installed enterprise architect under wine $(wine Downloads/easetup.exe), how do i know what program to run once the exe is installed?19:24
BeldarLinoron, read only, is a bit of a confusing at least to me variable. Does the usb have more than one partition and is it a flash drive?19:25
ericPi imagine it installed something in some virtual drive, but i have no idea what the name is or how to address it from the unix command line, as in $(wine ???)19:25
LinoronBeldar: I used the startup disk creator tool and let it reformat the drive and create it as default live usb stick, no extra partitions or anything19:26
LinoronBeldar: it asked me how much spacde I wanted for files, I increased the default setting, and therefore I was expecting to get a writeable sstick19:27
BeldarLinoron, Hmm, it should format as an fat32, not sure why you think it is read only.19:28
BeldarLinoron, So in other words the startup disk creator tool refuses to write to the stick?19:29
LinoronBeldar: when I reboot from the same stick, none of the environment changes I make to Ubuntu has been saved...19:29
BeldarLinoron, You have to have it persistent to have it save.19:30
LinoronI have to turn on the firewall again, set the wifi password again, etc. on each reboot, does not keep anything I do between boots19:30
LinoronBeldar: so is there a default setting that is set to NOT be persistent?19:30
Linoronhow do I do that?19:31
BeldarLinoron, Yes the default does not setup persistent in most usb loaders.19:31
BeldarLinoron, Been awhile since I used that app but I beleieve it is right on that gui you use to load the usb.19:31
harrisrhow can i change mac adress19:32
LinoronBeldar: my goodness, and where can that be changed, or do I have to re-make the usb?19:32
gmachine_24olabaz, what about when you do $lspci | grep -i wireless19:33
olabazgmachine_24: i don't get anything19:33
BeldarLinoron, Be sure to make the persistent big enough, and realize it is not cleanable and will fill up after awhile. If you have room for a second partition you can make it a persistent.19:33
OerHeksharrisr, open networkmanager, edit your  wired connection > add mac to cloned mac adress19:36
harrisri am on wireless19:36
OerHeksharrisr, oh, same thing, did you open networkmanager to find out?19:36
LinoronBeldar: I am quite sure that the place where I specify the size to keep documents and settings is the same as making it persistent, which is what I have done. No other settings in that window...19:36

harrisrOerHeks, i want to change my mac adress so i can max out dropbox referalls19:37
harrisrwhat is the easiest way19:37
BeldarLinoron, Kind of a confusing description "the place where I specify the size to keep documents and settings" you would have used persistent named persistent if it is persistent. If this is another partition it is not persistent unless setup as.19:37
LinoronBeldar: that is the only option in the startup disk creator window...19:38
OerHeksharrisr, as i told you, edit your network connection, and add it19:38
BeldarLinoron, I have rarely used that app, and happen to be in windows at the moment so can't really be any more specific. .19:39
OerHeksharrisr, and please do NOT ask me to get more dropbox refferals,.19:39
gmachine_24olabaz, I don't suppose you know what kind of chipset the wireless is using?19:40
LinoronJordan_U: to do a normal installation to a usb stick, can that be done to a 4gb stick, or is that too small? Does such an installation also require normal partitioning, swap partition, etc.?19:40

MoleManCould somebody provide instructions / a basic how-to for compiling SSH Server 6.2 for Ubuntu server 12.04, or even better provide a link to pre-compiled version please?19:42
Jordan_ULinoron: 4 GiB will be tight on space, but should fit with some room left over (the installer will warn you if you don't have enough space). Swap is no more or less needed than with a persistant USB "install". If you don't need to hibernate you'll probably do fine without it.19:42

OerHeksMoleMan, upgrade to sausy then, and you will have no dependencie problems19:50
BeldarLinoron, 1 gig is rather small I would use the max allowed, and make sure you do not have the discard on shutdown ticked, If you do not have more space to make a persistent partition it seems a loading the usb again with a larger recovery and no discard is needed19:50
harrisrOerHeks,  how does dropbox know if it is the same computer19:50

BeldarLinoron, loading a usb has limitations you are adding a file of mods to a read only iso, a wifi password should be kept however if saved correctly. I use unetbootin at times mainly another multiloader, both have persistent options, it may be as simple as the size you set is just to small. This is not rocket science, I have never had persistent fail ever if set up correctly. ;)19:54

VivekanandaHey everyone I am trying to figure if my computer supports harware acceleration. It has ubuntu 12.04 . Can someoen tell me how to find this out ?19:55
jcrzaMoleMan will do19:55
pers3usThere should be Realtek maintained driver over there. If not the compilation doesn't look like your problem. Something is wrong with the driver they have given you.19:56
MoleManSSH keys are better than passwords, if you can, multi factor auth is a good one19:56
douglVivekananda, what kind of video card?19:57
LinoronBeldar: yes, I have made many such live usb sticks myself, just not with the latest ubuntu versions since 2012, so I was wondiering if there was a difference from Lucid Lynx...19:57
MoleManie my server only allows password auth from the local network, SSH keys only from anything outside the local subnet, and I'm working on 2 factor auth using Google Auth time based one time passwords as well19:57
BeldarLinoron, In this area no.19:57
gmachine_24olabaz, I'm reading that recent Linux kernel supports the rtl818719:58

Beldarchris________, You might just install a light desktop to have one going while you get unity running.21:32
bekksJuju: On Ubuntu, you normally use the software-center or apt-get for installing software, not some web page. :)21:32
chris________when I go into usr apps it brings up the apps etc inc terminal. I eve tried dconf  reset too21:32
chris________what command can I use to install a different OS?21:33
chris________i.e 12/0421:33
Myrttichris________: different os?21:33
Beldarchris________, Not a OS a desktop21:33
mikubuntuafter i cleared/copied all files from my 'old' laptop to a usb -- i went to install ubuntustudio (also from a usb), but after starting to boot, the screen went completely black and the machine completely quiet -- no whirring of hdd, and of course the usb doesn't spin like a cd. but i didn't see any lights blinking or any indication that it was doing anything.21:33
mikubuntui got flustered, and thought well, i'll try installing lubuntu instead from a disk, but the disk also, seemed to get to a particular point, and then go black and the computer silent -- no indication that it was writing to the hdd at all.21:34
edveneed any support with SNMP anyone out there knows how to configure the snmpd.conf file ?21:34
mikubuntuthe old installation had about 15 gigs of files i saved, plus it had another 25-30 gigs in code from all the apps that were on it --- is it possible that it was silent because it was quietly overwriting, or possible something is awry? i aborted, and am running dban now -- its been running 44 mins, and says remaining time is 9 hours and some.21:34
chris________ahh duuurr lol. a different version of ubuntu? Just to see if that works21:34
bekkschris________: No.21:34
bekkschris________: a different desktop, not a different Ubuntu version.21:34
bekkschris________: Like kde, gnome, unity, lxde, xfce - on the very same ubuntu version you are on.21:35
Jujubekks» i know, but a web with this possibilities exits21:35
k1lchris________: install the package: lubuntu-desktop. that will install lubuntu with lxde as desktop. that is more lightweight21:35
Seveasedve: what do you want to know about it?21:35
bekksJuju: Even if it does, it isnt recommended to use those websites.21:35
Jujuk1l» something like that, but with icons and a searcher... THANK YOU anyway21:36

mrakyLubuntu  is  very light..21:41
kiwi_bekks, those embedded videos dont tell the url of their source.21:41
hitsujiTMOjjavaholic: you'd have to contact the ppa maintainers for help. You've replaced core components with versions from the ppa21:42
nightlingobekks: sorry :)21:43
sidineyJamesNZ,  i check the logcat21:43
jjavaholicfor what?21:43
skinuxIs Screenlets official Ubuntu package or third party?21:43
jjavaholichow do I find the PPA?21:43
hitsujiTMOjjavaholic: what ppa did you install for gnome 3.10?21:43
skinuxIt's unwise to modify Windows partition using Linux, right?21:44
bekksskinux: correct.21:44
hitsujiTMOskinux: yes.21:44
jjavaholiccould you point me in the right direction to the bug which describes the problem?21:44
Seveasskinux: true, but that does not hold for files on those partitions21:44
skinuxI already work with files on Windows partition, but I meant changing partition size, that sort of thing.21:45
hitsujiTMOjjavaholic: its not a bug. you've simply replaced the core components that unity uses with a different version therefore breaking unity21:45
HALanon9000i just installed the cinnamon desktop enviroment on ubuntu 12.04, and now theres a bunch of icons missing. is there an easy fix to this? or do i have to fix them individually?21:45
TJ-Do we have any VGA text-mode x86 real-mode experts?21:45
Seveasskinux: and shrinking windows partitions from linux (especially from the installer) is generally safe. Backups are always advised though.21:45
jjavaholicI need to stop the bad habit of installing PPA to short term "resolve issues"21:46
BeldarHALanon9000, from a ppa right, if so not technically supported here is all.21:47
skinuxCool. I might use Windows to do it anyway since I don't have any good backups currently.21:47
hitsujiTMOjjavaholic: test in first in a virtual machine is always a good way to go21:47
jjavaholicvirtual machines takes up so much storage space  * cries a little inside * I might bite the bullet though anyway21:48
lucaDear friends, could you explain how to attach ISO to the virtual machine??21:49
Beldarjjavaholic, Hardly more than an install.21:49
bekksjjavaholic: Full blown testing vm with 4 different desktops take about 10G here. Thats not "much space".21:49
jjavaholicI used virctual box and set aside separate iso for each distro (windows) then I kinda realised years ago that I was needlessly using up that space and ditched them all.21:51
jjavaholicwhat was what seemed like years ago now though21:51
glitsj16sh0t: you're not crazy .. https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/1049466 .. mixed reports though on possible fixes21:52
ubottuUbuntu bug 1049466 in linux (Ubuntu) "Need support of Ralink RT3290 wifi support" [Medium,Confirmed]21:52
jjavaholicI have had a quick look and i'm pretty sure it was this outdated ppa: http://ppa.launchpad.net/gnome3-team/gnome3/ubuntu21:52
skinuxI'm not sure it's appropriate, but anyone know if I can install Windows 8.1 into VBox while it's still installed on it's own partition?21:53
bekksskinux: Sure.21:53
sh0tglitsj16, yeah! not sure how to proceed21:53
skinuxIsn't there a rule limiting how many installations can be had by one person using same key?21:54
bekksskinux: Yes, there is. But it is irrelevant to Ubuntu at all.21:54
jjavaholic2 I think21:55
jjavaholic2 or three21:55
skinuxSorry, I took a shot in this channel since Windows channel usually doesn't have a lot of "dual booters".21:55
skinuxThanks jjavaholic.21:55
blockydoes anyone know where a wallpaper is saved if you set it from firefox? i want to use the same wallpaper for my terminal background21:56
blockynvmhmm fasdf21:56
glitsj16sh0t: easiest would be installing the 3.12 or 3.13 kernel21:56
blockysorry. nevermind, just found it in my home directory21:56
harrisIn ubuntu virtual box keeps aborting when trying to run ubuntu21:57
sh0tyeah i glitsj16 i tried with 3.12 but it still was kernel panicking. A question: if i install 3.12 kernel do i also need to compile the driver i found on internet or does it support it natively?21:57
hitsujiTMOsh0t: it should be supported natively21:58
glitsj16sh0t: according to the bug report several people had succes without compiling anything21:58
sh0tthanks hitsujiTMO, glitsj16  i'll try so i download the image and the headers and in run dpkg -i on them then upgrade-grub and then reboot21:59
glitsj16sh0t: correct21:59
sh0tthanks glitsj1621:59
hitsujiTMOsh0t: installing the image will trigger update grub, but yup21:59
skinuxOh, something else I need is to give Ubuntu a SWAP partition. Somehow it vanished.21:59
sh0tanother question guys should i uninstall the driver i installed before?22:00
sh0twith a make uninstall?22:00
sh0tand removing it from /etc/modules22:00
dstar69ubuntu 12.04 unity - skype installed, recognises video in the settings menu, but not while ringing.22:00

dstar69i can only find old (2012) fixes that don't seem to apply22:00
* skinux keeps wondering why Ubuntu removed "Application" and "System" menus.22:01
Beldardstar69, This skype from the ubuntu repos?22:01
sh0tthanks hitsujiTMO what about initramfs should i do something with that?22:01
hitsujiTMOsh0t: no that will be triggered22:01
sh0thitsujiTMO, ok thanks i am proceeding22:01
glitsj16skinux: you can install an indicator to get those back22:01
Beldarskinux, ubuntu did not remove them that was gnome 2 now end of life we now have gnome 322:02
dstar69beldar - no through skype website22:02
dstar69couldn't find it in repo22:02
Beldardstar69, The one from the repos is the recommended path, I would remove that one and try that22:03
dstar69do you have a path ahandy? i tried to search for it (but obviously couldn't find it) thanks22:03
Beldardstar69, It is in the partners repo is all you would make sure it is on, run a update then sudo apt-get install skyoe22:03
sh0thitsujiTMO, i rebooted with kernel 3.12 it seems it gets the signal even though it's not strong so i 'll try to navigate a bit and use the network22:04

jpbates13Is there anyway I can get a version of ubuntu LOWER than 32bit?22:18
dstar69beldar - can't find skype - tried to put the command in the terminal regardless, says it can't find skype.22:18
jpbates13if i burn ubuntu to a disk and boot my computer to it...will it overwrite my previous OS?22:18
dstar69beldar - not 100% sure i have "partner repo" running22:18
Seveasjpbates13: that makes absolutely no sense. Nobody builds 16 bit CPU's with the power to run anything like ubuntu. Moreover, I'm not sure if linux actually runs on anything 16-bit.22:19
jpbates13Seveas: Just need it for a virtual machine22:19
dstar69@jpbates13 if you're running it from the dvd, it won't overwrite.22:19
Seveasjpbates13: it will only overwrite your installed os if you tell it to.22:19
jpbates13Seveas: for some reason my Virtual Machine gets a kernal error with the 64bit version22:20

loki_jhutchins: but I am curious about something in relation to ssmtp.  specifically I think this is going to be easy, but I would like it to show the from name as something other than the email address it came from.  is there a way to do this in ssmtp?23:21
syghitsuji, the gui login? yes, but it always fails there23:22
jhutchinsloki_: I'm not sure about ssmtp, but the mailx program allows you to specify the sender, and iirc Nagios has a configuration option for who the mail appears from.23:22

ejuanhey, I'm having problems getting my AMD R7 260X video card to work correctly, I have the FGLRX experimental drivers installed from the additional drivers menu but it says "this driver is activated but not currently in use". i get the same thing when the post-release driver is installed as well. running aticonfig from the term outputs "aticonfig: No supported adapters detected". what do?23:29
sygjhutchins, besides the typical stuff like documents and downloads, i do web development, and not everything in there is chowned to me23:30

ahmihey i'm trying to install ubuntu on virtualbox but i ran into a problem. it said i had an issue about 64 bit....blahzay blahzay. does anyone know what to do to fix this?23:38
onltypvl1, no such settings like that, my bios is "American Megatrands P13RAN with Aptio Settings Utility"23:38
MonkeyDustahmi  use 32bit to be sure23:39
onltyVery annoying that my BIOS settings utility has very few options like23:39
onltySecure boot23:39
pvl1onlty: the thing is that linux clearly sees the radeon card23:39
ahmiyou mean the initial download from ubuntu.com23:39
ejuanhitsujiTMO, I'm not sure, it doesn't say on the additional drivers page, catalyst control center shows driver package version 12.104-130328a-157784C-ATI23:39
MonkeyDustahmi  yes, the 32bit iso23:39
ahmiok. thank you man. i hope this works.23:39
onltypvl1, it does see the radeon card, and it is listed in xrandr --listproviders, but it does not use it23:39
onltyIf I force it to use the card via creating an xorg.conf file, it fails back to fallback.23:40
pvl1can you please pastebin /var/log/Xorg.log23:40
hitsujiTMOejuan: looks like you installed 12 which isn't compatible with that card. you need 1323:40
pvl1and /etc/X11/xorg.conf23:40
onltypvl1, I dont have xorg.conf because xorg -configure wont work23:40
hitsujiTMOejuan: to be sure: dpkg --get-selections | grep fglrx23:40
ejuanI had the post-release driver installed first I'm wondering if it never fully removed before the experimental got installed.23:40
pvl1onlty: why wont it work23:40
onltypvl1, i forced my card to be load by 'radeon' module or anything which lead me to fallback.23:41
glitsj16gatchi: anything specific on the 'click' package?23:41
onltyi even tried modesetting.23:41

glitsj16gatchi: i never used it personally, but i know it is available since saucy (13.10) .. trouble installing it?23:45
k1lbtw, there is no server kernel anymore23:45
Roland-I was hoping for an minimal install23:47
gatchiglitsj16: yeah. added the repos for it, but cant find it.  and a dev package im trying to install requires it23:47
Roland-is that even posible?23:47
k1lRoland-: yes23:47
gatchiglitsj16: although.... i just recently updated my ubuntu install.  maybe i should try again.23:47
glitsj16gatchi: what version of ubuntu are trying to install it on?23:47

glitsj16gatchi: check on the launchpad page for the PPA if they offer it for 12.04 .. but apparently as you're not seeing it they wont23:51
hitsujiTMOejuan: sudo apt-get install mesa-utils && glxheads | pastebinit23:51
pvl1onlty: what kernel are you on and when did u install the opensource module23:52
onltypvl1, I have linux-3.11.0-15-generic23:52
onltyand the default opensource module23:52
glitsj16gatchi: you can jump easier in one go to the next LTS in April, to get at 13.10 from 12.04 i'd go for a re-install23:52
gatchiglitsj16: alright.  thanks for the info & advice23:53
onltyalso i have some weird, graphics artifacts (sometimes) that has horizontal short lines all over the screen and just disappears23:53
ejuanhitsujiTMO, a window popped up with a rendering of a triangle23:53
ejuanseems to be rendering ok..23:53
pvl1onlty: how did u install the module btw23:53
hitsujiTMOejuan: close the window23:53
onltypvl1, the radeon module and open source drivers were installed on ubuntu install23:54
glitsj16gatchi: perhaps you try to build it from source --> https://code.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/click23:54
onltyI had a fresh install a long ago23:54
pvl1radeon is open source, did u also install fglrx onlty23:54
ejuanhitsujiTMO, http://paste.ubuntu.com/6823426/23:54
onltypvl1, of course i did but it does not work at all23:54
pvl1onlty: remove the amd one, and reinstall xorg-video-radeon23:55
pvl1or w.e the package is23:55
onltypvl1, amd one is currently not installed23:55
gatchiglitsj16: definitely will at least bookmark it.  thanks.23:55
hitsujiTMOejuan: it does report that its rendering with the fglrx23:55
pvl1onlty: as long as you removed it. u said manually loading the radeon module causes you to drop to failsafe?23:56
onltyinstalling amd catalyst driver ***.run says that the graphics adapter is not supported blah blah blah.23:56
onltypvl1, manually setting radeon card as LVDS1 (my first monitor) in xorg.conf23:56
onltypvl1, if i install the fglrx module, direct render just turns off23:57
demophobiaIs there a keyboard shortcut to suspend ubuntu 12.04, rather than clicking the icon in top right corner?23:57
onltydemophobia, you can also manually set it in the preferences.23:58
demophobiaas described at http://www.absolutelytech.com/2010/10/17/howto-suspend-ubuntu-from-terminal-or-keyboard-shortcuts/ , onlty ?23:58
onltyDash is very useful23:58
pvl1onlty: when u set xorg.conf, do you also set Driver      "radeon"23:58
onltypvl1, i also tried Driver "fglrx"23:58
ejuanhitsujiTMO,  thanks for looking at it. my main problem is that i can't get cgminer to find the video card. when i try to build cgminer i get   OpenCL...............: Detection overrided. GPU mining support DISABLED23:58
pvl1well right now, lets deal with radeon23:59
onltyIt seems like I have two cards : intel(i915) and amd(radeon)23:59
ejuanwell thats when i do ./configure not build23:59
pvl1you do23:59
ejuanso i thought it was an issue with the video card drivers23:59
pvl1onlty: mobility graphics give u "control" of discrete graphics or full graphics. is their way of saving power23:59
ejuanbecause aticonfig couldn't find a supported card.23:59
