cidaWhat's the link for xubuntu's drivers?01:12
geniiDepends what device.01:16
cidaIt's a Dell Latitude D52001:16
geniiBy device, I mean video card, or wifi, or fingerprint reader, or so on01:17
cidaOh. Um...Broadcom I think is the thing you're asking for lol01:17
geniiBecause we have factoids like !intelhda !broadcom !nvidia   and so on...01:18
ubottuHelp with Broadcom bcm43xx can be found at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WifiDocs/Driver/bcm43xx01:18
cidaOkay. I'll be back if I can't figure it out from there01:19

tdec__tsun, swapoff -a && swapon -a ?05:29
tdec__will force all swapped memory to be loaded into RAM again05:29
tdec__but why would you want to do that ?05:29

tsuntdec__: Oh sorry I was afk,06:16
tsunI don't want to push it to RAM, I want it to clear it out. Is that possible?06:16
tdec__not with a command that I know of, but it will clear out eventually06:17
tdec__what is the reason for wanting to clear out your swap ?06:17
tsunI donno, lemme check htop06:17
tdec__your swap space is allocated anyway, regardless of whether there's stuff in there or not06:18
tsunoh hmm06:18

xubuntu37whello guys is comodo linux an antivirus for linux viruses or windows viruses (but running on linux) ?20:12
ubottuAntivirus is something you don't need on !Linux. except where files are then passed to Windows computers (perhaps using samba), See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Antivirus20:13
Unit193xubuntu37w: Windows I believe, to protect other Windows computers on the network.  Not sure how up to date the install method or technologies used are.20:14
xubuntu37wUnit193: then it's pointless to have it if I have an av on my windows (parition) ?20:15
Unit193For you it may well be, sure.20:16
Unit193If you do decide to look into it, keep in mind 'clamav' too.20:16
xubuntu37wclamav they are too many false alerts (or perhabs i configured it wrong)20:17
xubuntu37wi make a lot of mouvements OS - /  I also run some windows apps on linux that's why I'm asking for an antivirus on linux20:19
holsteinxubuntu37w: the windows apps in linux dont need protection like that either20:20
xubuntu37wI see I'll try and if it's not needed i will remove20:23
holsteinxubuntu37w: its *not* needed.. not for running applications in wine20:23
xubuntu37wI see thanks20:25
xubuntu37wholstein I got an error message : GPG error when i apt-get update20:25
xubuntu37wI added videolan repo and when I try too update the list it's give me this message20:26
holsteinxubuntu37w: i suggest *not* adding ppa's. but, if you need them, you need them.. you can look at the ppa pages for the GPG key20:26
holsteinor, just purge the vlc ppa, since you dont need it20:26
xubuntu37wI searched but I didn't find20:26
xubuntu37wi try keyserver it gives nothing20:27
holsteinxubuntu37w: we dont maintain those sources,but the key will be with the ppa.. what ppa did you add?20:27
holsteinxubuntu37w: or, just give the entire error..20:27

xubuntu37wIt's in french but you just need the gpg20:28
xubuntu37wW: Erreur de GPG : http://download.videolan.org  Release : Les signatures suivantes n'ont pas pu être vérifiées car la clé publique n'est pas disponible : NO_PUBKEY 6BCA5E4DB84288D920:28
holsteinxubuntu37w: what would i do? purge the ppa..20:28
ubottuTo disable a PPA from your sources and revert your packages back to default Ubuntu packages, install ppa-purge and use the command: « sudo ppa-purge ppa:<repository-name>/<subdirectory> » – For more information, see http://www.webupd8.org/2009/12/remove-ppa-repositories-via-command.html20:28
holsteinotherwise, you can use http://askubuntu.com/questions/127326/how-to-fix-missing-gpg-keys to chase it around20:29
xubuntu37wbut if i purge i can't get the updates from the current ppa (even if it doesn't work now) no ?20:29
holsteinxubuntu37w: do you need them? vlc is in the repos.. you shouldnt need that PPA20:29
ubottuA Personal Package Archive (PPA) can provide alternate software not normally available in the offical Ubuntu repositories - Looking for a PPA? See https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+ppas - WARNING: PPAs are unsupported third-party packages, and you use them at your own risk. See also !addppa and !ppa-purge20:30
holsteinxubuntu37w: you *can* resolve that message.. with the link i gave20:30
holsteinxubuntu37w: i would remove it, and just use the "add-apt-repostitor" command..20:31
holsteinsudo add-apt-repository ppa:videolan/stable-daily20:31
holsteini would purge or undo what you did, get "sudo apt-get update" to complete without error, then use ^^20:32
xubuntu37wholstein i want to understand how all this works20:39
xubuntu37wcan you look at this link : http://download.videolan.org/debian/stable/stable/ there a realase.gpg can i do something with it ?20:39

asdfgAnyone here to give some tech support?22:08
holsteinasdfg: just ask, and a volunteer may try to assist22:10
asdfgI have a problem with finding distro that would work well on my old pc. Only one distro working well seems to be ubuntu 10.04 and 11.04. After trying so many distros I would guess it can be because of the kernel version. in Ubuntu 10 and 11 it is 2.6.something. In newer it is always 3.2.something22:15
asdfgThe thing is support is ending for 1022:15
holsteinasdfg: nothing about the newer distros/kernels is preventin that machine from working22:15
holsteinasdfg: i say, try 14.04 live22:16
asdfgthey run yes, but very very laggy22:16
holsteinasdfg: otherwise, you may have to support 10.04 yourself.. or get new hardware22:16
asdfgwhile 10.4 is as fast as it can get on this old pc22:16
asdfg10.04 indeed22:16
holsteinasdfg: its not that is "faster" or "better". its that, as you say, its likely the hardware is supporting 10.04 "better" than the newer versions22:17
holsteinasdfg: what would i do? try 14.04 live, and try different graphics drivers.. the vesa driver, for example22:17
asdfghow can I find vesa?22:18
holsteinasdfg: you were not promiesd *any* linux support for that device, so it can be challenging.. and, running 14.04 with the vesa driver may be a nice compromise22:18
asdfgAlso can it be PAE NON/PAE issue? I am not sure which one this pc is22:18
holsteinasdfg: not anymore..22:18
holsteinasdfg: with the "pae" issue", it'll either work, or it wont22:19
asdfgI see...22:19
holsteinyou wont have sluggish performance with pae problems..22:19
holsteinanyways, i would install 14.04.. if i need, i would use the mini iso, or alternate text based. but, if the "normal" live iso works, i would use it.. then, i would use the xorg.conf i linked to force the vesa driver, and see if its less "sluggish"22:20
holsteini would take the opportunity to check the ram and hard drives22:20
asdfgok, thank you very much for help, I will try that22:21
holsteinknowing what graphics hardware you have can help a volunteer assist you better, as well22:22
