[12:01] LjL: k, ne ideas how to fix? [12:01] how do i verify? [12:01] from the cd [12:02] Siph0n: no, i think you have a bad problem with your filesystem, and i'm not competent enough to try a solution. [12:02] i got a directory on my desktop, it's locked, says i don't have permission to delete it.. it got there during a crapy installation of java [12:02] anyone help? === troglodyt [n=] has joined #ubuntu [12:02] _ go there then plaese [12:02] xxvii : try sudo rm -R [12:02] ? [12:02] _jason [12:03] Siph0n, what's the -R ? [12:03] <_jason> Comrade_Vladimir, i am in #flood [12:03] xxvii: i think it does directorys or sometin [12:03] im a newbie, but i remember usin that before i think :) [12:03] Siph0n, nah, rmdir is for directories [12:03] it deletes files recursively === shadeofgrey [n=] has joined #ubuntu === raingrove [n=] has joined #ubuntu [12:03] well did u even try my idea xxvii? [12:03] ubuntu_noob: we'll get you fixed up [12:03] it's not -R, it's -r [12:04] i'll try [12:04] xxvii: do try what he said; if it doesn't work, i think you just don't have the right permissions [12:04] Agrajag: it's both, "man rm" [12:04] oh, I guess it doesn't matter [12:04] anyone know how to fix filesystems? or is it most likely i gotta reformar? [12:04] nalioth: heh. thanks. watches archives dl === Bicchi [n=] has joined #ubuntu [12:05] LjL, Siph0n, thank you guys! it worked.. i been stumped all day because of that damn directory [12:05] Siph0n: umount /mountpoint && fsck /mountpoint === jfletcher [n=] has joined #ubuntu === Pugh [n=] has joined #ubuntu [12:05] thanks guys [12:05] Agrajag: i don't know if either syntax is deprecated, other commands like "grep" or "cp" also have both -R and -r as synonyms [12:05] Siph0n: it's the root filesystem, boot up with a live cd [12:06] hey i want to install something that depends on QT 3 what do i need to install? [12:06] nalioth: I've booted to the live CD. I don't see 'qtparted', but then again, I'm not running KDE. It's a ubuntu disk, not a kubuntu disk. Will 'parted' work? [12:06] so i first boot up with a live cd, then just type in 'umount /mountpoint' and 'fsck /mountpoint' ? [12:06] ok I installed w32codecs but when I try streaming video with mplayer they still wont play, I have to open mplayer and load the file from my tmp directory [12:06] im a little new :) === anatole [n=] has joined #ubuntu [12:06] dooglus: use synaptic to install it [12:06] nalioth: can synaptic install stuff when on the live cd? [12:07] LjL: it can, yes [12:07] any clue on how to get my mozilla plugin to work right [12:07] nalioth: won't that need to install megs of QT and KDE stuff? [12:07] nalioth: cool, on a ram disk i assume? [12:07] Siph0n, why do you think that the filesystems are "broken"? [12:07] LjL: it can. but it's very slow for me, so I use apt-get instead === agnul [n=] has joined #ubuntu [12:07] how to install a .tra.bz2 file? [12:07] .tar.bz2 sorry === slide [n=] has joined #ubuntu [12:08] xxvii: a tar.bz2 is just an archive, like a .zip file [12:08] extract the file, install [12:08] ompaul: thats what someone just told me? [12:08] xxvii: "tar xf " [12:08] ok, thanks [12:08] xxvii: tar jxf file.tar.bz2 [12:08] LjL: you don't need the 'j' bit [12:08] <3 Ubuntu [12:08] dooglus: it will not [12:08] LjL: correct, on the ramdisk [12:08] ompaul: when i boot up it fails to mount the filesystem it says, and when i shutdown it also says umount filesystem [12:08] no one else having any probs with mozilla-plugin? [12:08] nalioth: what's the package called, and what repo. is it in? [12:09] dooglus: it's called "qtparted" [12:09] universe [12:09] and it should be immediately available in synaptic or apt-get [12:09] "public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY 49A120FD1135D466 [12:09] " <-- What should I do/ [12:09] LjL: really? [12:09] my bad [12:09] nalioth: in universe? [12:09] nalioth: yep [12:09] ubuntu_noob: tell Stormx2 about gpgerr [12:09] oops that wasn't meant to linebreak >.> [12:09] nalioth: that'll be why I can'tfind it then. [12:09] nalioth: parted itself is in main of course [12:10] dooglus: enable universe and multiverse, reload your apt-get and get qtparted [12:10] is qtparted a KDE app? [12:10] nalioth: gparted is also in main [12:10] dooglus: yes [12:10] Any suggestions for a music tagger? [12:10] can someone please tell me how to enable repositories? [12:10] !tell skapple about repos [12:10] dooglus: well actually, no [12:10] is there anyreason to prefer qtparted to parted or gparted? [12:11] dooglus: it's just a QT app, it has a KDE dependency but it's "fake" [12:11] dooglus: qt is a widget library that kde uses, like gtk is a widget library that gnome uses [12:11] nalioth: What do I replace release with in /var/lib/apt/lists/Release [12:11] dooglus: parted is a little hard to use, being a command line tool... qtparted and gparted are both frontends [12:11] Stormx2: read what ubotu instructed pleaee [12:11] LjL: i see. so gparted would be the more 'ubuntu' way to do it? [12:11] nalioth: I just did. [12:11] hmm. well, i did the sudo apt-get -f install and sudo apt-get update and sudo aptitude dist-upgrade and those broke on the same file. they always break on wvdial. is there a good way to just remove and reinstall that one package? [12:12] dooglus: no. gparted doesnt use ntfsprogs, but qtparted does === looksaus [n=] has joined #ubuntu [12:12] nalioth: It said to do "sudo rm /var/lib/apt/lists/Release", but what do I replace Release with? [12:12] I want to scale a pdf or ps with two a4 pages to one a3 ps with the same two a4 pages on it [12:12] nalioth: Wait... lol [12:12] dooglus: as opposed to the "kubuntu" way, yeah, suppose so. never used gparted though, and rarely used qtparted. if nalioth is familiar with qtparted, i suggest you just use that one, right now. [12:12] I've been fiddling with pdfnup, psresize, psnup,... but the result just isn't right === skapple [n=] has joined #ubuntu [12:12] whats a good prog to use for dvd watching if totem isnt an option? [12:12] can someone tell me how to enable repositories? [12:12] any suggestions? [12:12] shadeofgrey: VLC? [12:12] LjL: it's installing. slowly... [12:12] Stormx2: just copy and paste what it told you === Elsan [n=geno@] has joined #ubuntu [12:12] storm: the interface sucks tho [12:13] is there a way to tell apt-get to download the unmet dependencies? I tried apt-get install apache2, and I get the following unmet dependencies: apache2-mpm-worker, apache2-mpm-prefork and apache2-mpm-prechild. Fine, but now I found that apache2-mpm-prefork has other unmet dependencies. Is there a way apt-get would just get all the dependencies automatically? [12:13] !tell skapple about repos [12:13] "Setting up libqt3-mt..." (has been for a minute or two) [12:13] amonroy: i don't think there is a way === Sanne [n=] has joined #ubuntu [12:13] okay if totem-xine doesnt want to work and libdvdcss2 dorsnt want to work, what are my options?

Firefox won't start since I installed mozilla-plugin-vlc and Sun Java: INTERNAL ERROR on Browser End: Could not get the plugin manager [12:13] System error?:: Succs [12:14] amonroy: but it's not right that apache2 is giving you unmet deps, anyway [12:14] amonroy: it definitely shouldn't [12:14] nalioth: It didn't fix the error..... [12:14] LjL, weird, I just installed the OS from scratch [12:14] Stormx2: do it again and go have a coffee or watch some tv [12:14] How would i start a 'second X server' ? Im trying to play quake3 and first off, if i quit quake my resolution doesnt change back to what i had, so i searched google and somone suggested running it in a second X like this 'X :1 -ac & ( DISPLAY=:1 quake3 )' which sounds great, but just running that doesnt work [12:14] Stormx2: iow, give it a at least 10 minutes [12:14] well, before that I got the repository list form [12:14] to all :) -im trying my 3rd cd the first prompt i typed "expert" and i am checking the integrity of the disk. the disks have no scratches on them so it hink it will be ok..but i have a feeling that its still not going to work [12:15] do i need to sudo that? [12:15] do you think that's where I screw it LjL? [12:15] amonroy: it's working without any deps problems for me. try "sudo apt-get -f install", then "sudo apt-get update", then "sudo apt-get dist-upgrade" === trkorecky [n=] has joined #ubuntu [12:15] what is the latest version of ubuntu?

[12:15] ok, stopping nalioth :) [12:15] ubotu: tell amonroy about sources [12:15] it wont download again [12:16] nalioth: the whole apache2 stuff is in main, as far as i can see === kreatine [n=] has joined #ubuntu [12:16] you guys like gdm or kdm [12:16] nalioth: qtparted is running. what do I do? [12:16] skapple: Yes. [12:16] amonroy: get rid of the sources.list you got from ubuntuguide and use the one for your system (and hope you haven't botched up anything important) [12:16] dooglus: resize what yo uwant to resize [12:16] nalioth: oh, i see [12:16] how can i get apt-get to give me a list of say packages with a [12:16] ?

[03:45] paxmaster i ya yia you may have to put it back togather before you can extratc it. [03:46] foampeac1: I don't agree, but ok. [03:46] How do I tell ubuntu live (ppc edition) what resolution to boot at? [03:46] redondos: then what is the answer [03:46] ok.. got torrent working.. can anyone help me with getting internet radio to work? [03:46] sethmahoney, may I msg you? [03:46] answer to what foampeac1? [03:46] foampeac1: I don't know. There are discrepancies here. It is a well-discussed subject that you can read about on many, many articles/mailing lists.

[03:47] redondos, thanks, i'll try it [03:47] np, xxvii [03:47] ok so like every 2 weeks there will be a new cd image released === RadSurfer [i=] has joined #ubuntu [03:48] paxmaster: how did you split it in the first place? [03:48] does anyone in here have an amd64 ? [03:48] Xcerca_: Don't really know crap about ubuntu on k8. [03:48] well first i made a tar file and then the split command [03:48] what's k8? a processor? [03:48] thats ok, i'll check the forums... [03:48] ecobuntu: new line of amd cpus [03:48] ok [03:49] ecobuntu: yes is the amd 64 bits [03:49] crimsun, the support of this sound card is very problematic (just since hoary i can play sound with multiple aplications) [03:49] i want to get an amd after my laptop kicks the bucket [03:49] i hear they're pretty sweet [03:49] _jason how does right-clicking on properties help me to erase all the listings of different programs?

[03:50] thx guys [03:50] in console ? [03:50] paxmaster: concatenate it. [03:51] anyone know ? :( [03:51] Xcerca_: There is a long answer as to why, but I doubt you care that much. In order to use w32codecs, you need to get a 32-bit environment. You can do this by either installing Ubuntu 32bit or searching for "chroot" and setting up a 32bit chroot. [03:51] crimsun, [03:51] vrub: there are many editors out there. [03:51] what is this? [03:51] Could someone help me with my pure ftpd [03:51] i mean what is the name of it redondos like i dont remember the name [03:51] anyone use the stumbleupon firefox extension? [03:51] vrub: sudo gedit /etc/grub/menu.lst ? [03:51] vrub 'sudo nano /boot/grub/menu.lst ' or something like that. [03:51] ty [03:51] vrub: if you don't feel comfortable using vim/emacs, then use nano. so: sudo nano /boot/grub/menu.lst [03:51] vrub: Or pico. Or emacs [03:52] paxmaster: did you manage to do it? [03:52] ah hem [03:52] nano [03:52] paxmaster: just `cat file1 file2 > resultingfile' [03:52] crimsun: is the 2.6.15 kernel in dapper repositories? [03:52] cralost: you can try installing build-essential, linux-headers-$(uname -r), and gcc-3.4. Then download alsa-driver 1.0.10 from [03:52] ecobuntu: yes [03:52] the firefox stumbleupon extension ROCKS [03:52] pico is nano or is it nano is pico ??????? [03:52] crimsun: how come i can apt-cache search it [03:52] Orborde: nano is pico's evolution. it's one or the other :) [03:52] crimsun: i ment can't find it [03:53] well one is a symlink to the other [03:53] ecobuntu: ecobuntu apt-cache policy linux-image-2.6.15-3-686 [03:53] Is there any way to disconnect, say, an Xfce session and resume it later on another machine, a la screen -r ?

[03:55] kirk pm me maybe i can help [03:55] does the ubuntu live cd look like this? === MarcN [n=] has left #ubuntu [] [03:55] crimsun: do you see it if you run apt-cache search linux-image [03:55] ecobuntu: yes [03:55] <_jason> foampeac1, when you run it on windows [03:55] crimsun: can you paste your /etc/apt/sources.list === aaronf0 [n=] has left #ubuntu [] [03:56] ecobuntu: it's a standard dapper sources.list [03:56] <_jason> foampeac1, it let's you install some oss for windows [03:56] Xcerca_: Sorry if I sounded like a jerk. The reason you can't use w32codecs in 64bit Ubuntu directly is that you're set up with 64bit libraries, which 32bit programs cannot link into. [03:56] crimsun: well i don't have it in my repositories [03:56] well i just formatted....and installed ubuntu... i plan to install winblows as well for some necessary school apps........ I formatted my 80gb hard drive and made 2 10gb partitions ( win/lin ) .... i want to be able to access the remaining 60gb from both .... but havent the most remote clue how.. [03:56] are ther screenshots of the livecd? [03:56] crimsun: i just see 2.6.12 [03:57] thx, i figured that.... [03:57] kirk: Set it up as a FAT32 filesystem. [03:57] ecobuntu: do you even have dapper in your sources.list? [03:57] if i installed totem-xine from synaptic, how do i creatie a link to it ?

[03:57] the command is just xine ... [03:57] <_jason> foampeac1, do you just want to see what ubuntu looks like? [03:57] kirk: how? well, you should use QTParted. [03:57] we have 16/32 bit thunking... I can just see us using 32/64 bit thunking techniques [03:57] ecobuntu: do you have the main archive enabled? [03:57] Xcerca_: I believe it simply overwrites totem with totem-xine. [03:58] RadSurfer: thunking is not the appropriate term === rubys [n=] has left #ubuntu ["Leaving"] [03:58] RadSurfer: we're working on biarch support for Dapper [03:58] ok.... mind if i pm you and get a wee bit of step-by-step ? :P [03:58] crimsun: yeah [03:58] I don't have the time, sorry. [03:58] ecobuntu: then you should see it with ''apt-cache policy linux-image-2.6.15-3-686'' [03:58] crimsun:'s cause i had us.archive...not just archive [03:58] there are docs everywhere. maybe google a bit. === diana [n=] has joined #ubuntu [03:58] _jason: no i just wonder if it is much different then the install disc === marco [n=marco@] has joined #ubuntu [03:58] <--- This is my /etc/network/interfaces file...

It doesn't. Do I need it? If so, how do I get it? [03:59] crimsun: i delete all the of the 'us' from my repositories and now i can see things...and i am getting updates when before i didn't [03:59] kirk as if you didn't get enough ideas the cli option would be to use fdisk/cfdisk /dev/hd? to make a fat32 partition and use mkfs.vfat /dev/hd?# to format it.

[04:02] /etc/init.d/ssh restart [04:02] Alright, thanks. [04:02] np. [04:02] ssh or sshd ? [04:02] why is this system using OpenBSD sshd? darn! [04:02] i wish i had a HP printer [04:02] here, it's just ssh. [04:03] Is anyone going to help God? [04:03] but who knows.. ubuntu is a little weird with the names [04:03] guys, you know how when you right click and do create new file > it says no templates instsalled yet? how can I install a template, so it says something like 'create new Xml file' or osmething [04:03] intelikey ssh works for me.

Only use it for booting your ubuntu installation. I can't quite remember the command to do so, but pressing F1 when Grub appears you'll see some tips. It's something like `boot /dev/hdb1', for instance. [04:14] to burner, has anyone else experienced this?

[04:20] redondos: I haven't installed any repository [04:20] sudo vi /etc/apt/sources.list [04:20] trkorecky: well, you could stop some daemons from running... then configure your own minimalistic kernel. but that won't help much.

[04:29] no, Varanger. [04:29] redondos: which ones are needed for streaming audio? i've downloaded ones to play DVDs, avis, wmvs.. files like that.. nothing specifically for streaming audio though [04:29] I dont use anything, mplayer wont even work, wont work on webpages [04:30] and totem never works [04:30] hi, what is the best filesystem to use on a usb thumb drive? ext2 and ext3 seem to constantly write to the drive [04:30] ibb [04:30] xine doesn't work either come to think of it, it will play a dvd but the video with be choppy [04:30] xxvii: depends on the codec they used to encode the feed. try installing libogg === Arnia [n=] has joined #ubuntu [04:30] redondos: thanks [04:31] xxvii, dont know if this will help but do you have gstreamer?

[04:32] you don't need a sophisticated FS for a usb thumb drive [04:32] what are some other xwindows? like gnome and kde.. what's the others? can't remember the names [04:32] MrFarts, i know, but i also dont like fat [04:33] pppoe_dude, i think you should use QNX filesystem [04:33] pppoe_dude, or perhaps System 7 [04:33] system 7 is probably what you really want [04:33] xxvii: gnome and kde are desktop environments. another one is xfce. [04:33] redondos: I followed the instructions but I don't find the checkboxes for multiverse, just universe... should I add it manually ?? [04:34] redondos: yea.. that's the one.. thanks again man. this is a refresher course for me.. havent used linux for a while, just reinstalled yesterday [04:34] xxvii: those desktop environments make use of window managers: metacity, kwin and xfwm, respectively. some others are enlightenment, fluxbox, ratpoison, iceWM, there are many more... === Swedish_Chef [n=] has joined #ubuntu [04:34] Varanger: yeah just add it. I haven't used synaptic for a while, but I guess you could just do that. [04:35] Varanger: oh, better yet. edit the one you see. [04:35] Varanger: When editing, you'll see a checkbox for Multiverse. Check it. [04:35] what about UFS?

[04:53] pppoe_dude ^ [04:53] Hello Anyone! [04:53] comradevik: Well, when I went to get the ubuntu x86 for her, I noticed the ubuntu live CDs and thought WOW! Maybe this will be like Knoppix - with support for saving setting on USB thumb drive.. If not, that is cool, and I will go back to Knoppix [04:53] hello lgc [04:54] jsubl2, hello. finally! [04:54] so.. what is going on lgc [04:54] jsubl2, are you familiar with wireless links? [04:55] nope sorry lgc [04:55] intelikey k [04:55] mtnbkr_ imho knoppix loads faster and stuff.. what i do tho is use the ubuntu live cd at school to log on and SSH to my comp and work from there :) [04:55] works great [04:55] jsubl2, is there anyone you know here who happens to know the subject? [04:55] lgc all communication in this house ends up wireless.. but i do not manage it the isp does [04:56] lgc did you try the sometime you get lucky and there is some good info there === bc_ [n=] has joined #ubuntu [04:56] jsubl2, but you have to use your own wireless client, [04:56] !wireless [04:56] extra, extra, read all about it, wireless is [04:56] thanks comradevik... Got to run for now [04:56] lgc [04:57] jsubl2: your ISP configures you ubuntu system? === darknature [n=] has joined #ubuntu [04:57] redondos, no they just provide the means for me to connect to the internet.. hardwired to his antennae on my roof === RedGhost [n=] has joined #ubuntu [04:57] lgc: what do you want to know? perhaps I can help you [04:58] jsubl2: ...just what an ISP needs to do. great === SOMNIVM [n=] has joined #ubuntu [04:58] jsubl, I'm trying to open that page now. [04:58] redondos, yeah it works real well. [04:58] i contacted my ISP and they wre like "we don't support linux, bye" [04:58] redondos very secure wireless of course.... [04:59] can someone please look at my output in #flood to see whats wrong? [04:59] redondos, the problem is that after a while (sometimes a short, sometimes a long while) the wireless link from my laptop goes dead. [04:59] is there an anti virus program for linux or do you not have to worry about getting virues? [04:59] comradevik: they will soon === K_Dallas__ [i=] has joined #ubuntu [04:59] insert coin > ubuntu [04:59] ok.... then thing is that I have 2 almost identical usb thumb drives, same brand, but one is 512 MB and the other is 1GB. They seem to behave quite differently when plugged in. both had ext2 fs, 512 one lights up a little bit, but the 1gb one lights up for 2 seconds and keeps doing the same lighting pattern every 20 seconds or so [05:00] intelikey: I'm sure, heh [05:00] harris worry about virus' if you are serving mail to windows clients [05:00] harris: no virus here. [05:00] lgc: does this happen with other wireless devices connected to your access point? [05:00] meaning there not written for the linux kernal ? [05:00] harris unless you run a server of some kind. virii are a micro-reboot issue. [05:01] pppoe_dude: are you fixing pppoe? [05:01] is there a good vpn manager for ubuntu? [05:01] i'm not running a server [05:01] foampeac1 fixing what? [05:01] redondos, the laptop is the only wireless item around [05:01] foampeac1: he's the specialist here. [05:01] harris cool then you will probably not need virus checking or spyware checking [05:01] how come no one writes virueses that effect linux? [05:01] lgc: I'd -as a prevention method- blame the access point for now, until it is proven contrary. [05:02] cool jsubl2 [05:02] harris, small percent of the market.. [05:02] lgc: so go get a friend's laptop and see if it happens. [05:02] redondos, but how can I prove that? === pawan [n=pawan@] has joined #ubuntu [05:02] harris if you want to give it a shot feel free. [05:02] lol, [05:02] lgc: ^ that way ^ [05:02] pppoe_dude: maybe a gui config app? [05:02] redondos, thab [05:03] harris: the malware would have to know your pw to do real damage... [05:03] ya I guess that's a good point jsubl2 [05:03] pw? [05:03] i mean, are these bad signs? whenever I do anything on the 1gb stick, it does the same activity light patter... the 512 one is more like a harddisk [05:03] lgc: in fact, if it really is that you could feel lucky, since it's the less-headaching problem [05:03] and that wouldn't even be an issue if you apt-get remove sudo lol [05:03] redondos, oops! thanks. I do get an IPW2200 fatal error at boot time. And it usually takes forever at the "configuring network interfaces" step. [05:04] harris: password [05:04] foampeac1: I acquired this nickname 3 years ago, when I wanted to fix my pppoe, now i have cable [05:04] harris it would need root access [05:04] gottcha, i never thought about that [05:04] default breezy has modules like tpm ide_generic etc lying around. How do I remove them so that they don't start up? Also, how can I rtfm about what these modules actually do ? [05:04] [05:04] lgc: ah, well.. what error? === nmstryoda [n=] has joined #ubuntu [05:04] same thing on windows [05:05] but thats for offtopic [05:05] pppoe_dude: it must have taken you a lot of time for you to fix your DSL line if that nickname prevailed because you got used to it [05:05] i just set up ubuntu a few days ago, and I must say... I'm impressed [05:05] redondos, it says something like "starting dump log" or whatever. Do you know where to look for these kind of logs? === mojo [n=] has joined #ubuntu [05:05] redondos, well I just thought i'd keep it... couldn't think of a better nick in 3 years [05:06] lgc: less /var/log/messages [05:06] pppoe_dude : there is a usbstick fs around. Used in puppy/qemu for example. [05:06] pppoe_dude: I understand. how much time did it take, though? [05:06] well anybody noticed a uniform light pattern on their usb stick? [05:06] pppoe_dude : queues up writes, extends life for the stick indefinitely. [05:06] redondos: only one xchat session [05:07] although I haven't graps the command line yet [05:07] pawan, i see [05:07] qeqe: Will Ubuntu work in 32mb okay? I have a laptop (old cpq armada 7370) that i'm setting up for internet browsing. my friend stays at home to take care of his invalid father and wants something to help occupy time and to take on-line coursework. [05:07] pppoe_dude: oh... then it is funny. === Hobbsee [n=] has joined #ubuntu [05:07] redondos, thanks. With "dmesg" it says it found a duplicate address. However, the thing is still operational (while it is operational, that is), as you can see. [05:07] !cli [05:07] default breezy has modules like tpm ide_generic etc lying around. How do I remove them so that they don't start up? Also, how can I rtfm about what these modules actually do ? I can disable ide_generic and some others in /etc/modules, but what about the rest? floppy, for example. [05:07] cli is, like, totally, or, or [05:07] mojo: 32Mb of RAM probably won't be enough, no === RockyBurt [n=] has joined #ubuntu [05:08] is reformatting usb flash drives onver and over bad? === Toran [n=jon@unaffiliated/toran] has joined #ubuntu [05:08] qeqe: sry, meant to say "Q:" like question [05:08] harris ^ [05:08] yes. [05:08] how can I allow remote X server connections to my ubuntu machine? [05:08] mojo: I would try to run xubuntu on it. I think xfce would run better than gnome, without losing eye-candy. [05:08] see ubotu post ^ [05:08] Madpilot: u know any distros that would? lightweight x is okay, just an internet browser [05:08] what post is that? [05:08] redondos: how do i get xubuntu? i didn't think that was a sep. distro release yet [05:09] My aim in removing the modules is to have more ram for other stuff. Am I being anally retentive? Does it make a difference? [05:09] mojo: try ubuntu with xfce, enlightenment, fluxbox. in that order... I think it may run pretty well. [05:09] the one with in front of it :) [05:09] to fix my svn problem I was told ""localegen - and generate the english utf8 locale" - anyone know how I do that?

[05:12] forget I even typed that lol [05:12] pawan: yeah, i can't get the livecd to come up w/o complaining and failing. it wants 128 min.

I'll have to do some searching for alternates [05:14] i still say with 32m ram you should look at dsl [05:14] thanks for the tops lntelikey, i'm taken off.... peace [05:14] Cyphase: oh... it's the acx111 driver. sorry, I never played with it :( [05:14] redondos: will do, i am futzing w/it now [05:14] tips [05:15] I don't have any devices with that chipset.

[05:19] robotgeek, i already tried [05:20] i got a card that the wiki says works [05:20] I Use in some of my computer VMWARE and ubuntu (in vmware) [05:20] pawan lsmod would show what is loaded atm, and /lib/modules/[tab] [tab] will find the location for you. you can mv modules you dont think you need to /root/backup or someplace and test for a few days if all is well rm /root/backup. [05:20] and it didn't [05:20] redondos: that is weird, it just says END at the bottom [05:20] cyphase: not the wiki,lemme bring up the link [05:20] it half works sometimes, but not enough to actually maintain a connection [05:20] I update xserver , and boom , the XORG dosnt load , it say somthing about the graphic card [05:20] cyphase: ah, ndiswrapper? [05:20] nevermind [05:20] I use again vmware tools but with out lack [05:20] blanky: that's because I just put dpkg -i instead of `dpkg -l | less' [05:20] blanky: i'm a little tired :) [05:21] blanky: I mean, today. [05:21] cyphase: [05:21] pawan i sujest moving them first cause if you rm something that you do need it may also affect your ability to reinstall it without a full reload. [05:21] any one mybe play with vmware and the new xserver? [05:21] intelikey : any idea where, during boot up, the system decides to load up all these modules? Besides /etc/modules? 'cos, it tries to load up everything under the sun. Maybe its in modutils. [05:22] redondos: I press space to show more right? thanks bud! [05:22] yep pawan in /etc/init.d/ === andres [n=] has joined #ubuntu === andres [n=] has left #ubuntu ["Abandonando"] [05:22] pawan: there's some kind of a black list too, but i think that's for hotplug === comradevik [n=victor@] has left #ubuntu [] [05:23] I was thinking there was an update-modules type of thing for breezy, but it says it is obsolete. === Owner [n=] has joined #ubuntu [05:23] alrighty im going to try one more time lol i think everyone missed me last time can anyone help me with installing the nvidia drivers for breezy..? === Xenguy [n=] has joined #ubuntu [05:23] !nvidia [05:23] [nvidia] at, or [05:23] can someone explain a display manager? why should I set gdm vs. kdm for default? I hear I can have them control different x servers? How would I go about using them both at once? Could this mean that I could have a KDE session and a Gnome session running at the same time? [05:23] blanky: or up/down pgup/pgdown k/j [05:23] blanky: and np :) [05:23] back [05:23] it's a Netgear WG311v2 === pawan wonders how breezy decides what modules to load, and where. === simonvallore [n=] has joined #ubuntu [05:24] Hello [05:24] when i run glxgears my computer freezes [05:24] oops [05:24] Hello [05:24] how do i fix this [05:25] zoexii: You can already do that, with just one display manager. Applications, System Tools, and then the new login thing. Have one KDE and one GNOME, you don't necessarily need seperate display managers. One display manager can start almost any window manager/desktop environment. [05:25] I mean, tpm is a touchscreen thingy for compaqs. Fat lot of use that is going to be on my standard desktop. [05:25] zoexii: you can always have a kde and a gnome session at the same time while using gdm/kdm/xdm/qingy/whatever... or none at all. [05:25] Owner = cyphase === Owner is now known as cyphase === cyphase is now known as Cyphase [05:25] pawan i just told you. it runs the scripts in /etc/init.d/ look at /etc/rcS.d/ for the primary startup scripts list. [05:25] redondos, I see you're tired, but can you at least tell me how can I bring the wireless link up again (ifupdown eth1 restart doesn't seem to work)? [05:25] what's the hot key for take screenshot? [05:26] print screen blanky [05:26] zoexii: I suppose that you could have kdm running on one 'screen' and gdm on a seccond (f7/f8), but I can't imagine the use of it. And I know it would be a near nightmare setting it up [05:26] blanky: cli version, import -root screenie.png :) [05:26] Cyphase: have you tried them using ndiswrapper? perhaps it's more stable. even though, that would have no sense. [05:26] er...I mean, I pressed one once and it brought up the 'save screenshot' dialog, I want that one [05:26] I've downloaded ubuntu dapper on both of my pcs, burned from both pcs and they both stay stuck at installing 6% anyone can help me [05:26] blanky printscreen [05:26] redondos, it won't let me add it with ndiswrapper [05:26] okayt thanks! === xorbit [n=] has joined #ubuntu [05:27] intelikey : no mention of tpm in those scripts. [05:27] RobNyc: did you burn DAO? [05:27] Aegir, redondos, does this involve the control+alt+functionkey thing? is that what you mean by screen? [05:27] Ron_o: yes i used k3b with both pcs too [05:27] Who has a wireless PCI card working out of the box on a desktop? [05:27] please people [05:27] did you do an MD5? [05:27] Ron_o: k3b does it right [05:28] so yes [05:28] I really don't know. [05:28] zoexii: Think so. I can rarely tell the difference between 'display', 'screen' and half the xorg terminology used. But yes, if you do a new login screen you should be able to swap back between the two with ctl+alt+f7/8 === bm_doughboy [n=] has joined #ubuntu [05:28] I, too, have many problems with burning CDs. [05:28] how old is your system? [05:28] well i burned it in 2 pcs, @ 4x [05:28] try 1x and see what happens. [05:28] thats slow enough === delphy [i=] has joined #ubuntu [05:29] Aegir: display, screen, monitor, window, geometry... [05:29] wow [05:29] lgc: how did you manage to get it down? try /etc/init.d/networking restart [05:29] that will nevre finish [05:29] RobNyc: were you asking about Nexenta earlier today? [05:29] it may take 1.5 hours to do but... [05:29] RobNyc: Same image? You might need to re-download it [05:29] ecobuntu: yes [05:29] when i run glxgears my computer freezes how do i fix this [05:29] Aegir: no not same image 2 diff [05:29] pawan: Heh. Yeah, I'll say. I know the last two though. [05:29] aegir, cool, this appears to be working... thanks [05:29] I can't help you beyond that. 4x is probably slow enough for your system so what I say may not help [05:29] ecobuntu: go on nexenta chan let me ask u something [05:29] Cyphase: weird... maybe you're not using the right driver. try the one for w2k and for xp. === gpd [n=] has left #ubuntu [] [05:29] ecobuntu! big hug === delphy is now known as delphy_ === radiodog [n=] has joined #ubuntu === blanky is now known as econobuntu [05:29] RobNyc: Try installing breezy and upgrading to Dapper from that. That is the method I use. === bm_doughboy is now known as everdred [05:29] :D [05:30] ok [05:30] Cyphase: I'm talking about ndiswrapper. [05:30] you [05:30] RobNyc: ask in ubuntu offtopic.. [05:30] yo [05:30] Aegir: that worked b4 yes but i wanted dapper from the release === Aegir shrugs [05:30] anyone know why after recompiling the kernel (using the directions given at: and making sure that ext2/3 are activated i get an error on boot about .dep file for modules not being found, ext3 module not being able to load -> fatal error? === everdred [n=] has left #ubuntu ["Leaving"] [05:30] Your on your own then RobNyc. The image might be broken, you might have a bad net connection, you might be burning the image incorectly. It could be many things. [05:31] Aegir: weird === ruiwen [n=] has joined #ubuntu === workbean [n=workbean@] has joined #ubuntu [05:31] I think my problem has to do with my cd-burner not liking the cloop compression. [05:31] redondos, thanks. I mean that when the link goes dead "ifupdown" doesn't help. [05:31] RobNyc: They could be bad CDR's that you're using. That wouldn't surprise me infact [05:31] pztak is it in the initrd ? [05:31] Aegir: good point. [05:32] what kind of CDs? [05:32] not CD-RWs? [05:32] CD-RW doesnt matter [05:32] simonvallore : that's the only package that freezes the system? [05:32] it did for me. [05:32] I've used CD-RW's often [05:32] redondos, thanks a lot for now. That'll do, but there's a lot more to ask the experts later. 'Later! [05:32] Aegir: nothing is a surprise in this world [05:32] intelikey, what do you mean, i did make-kpkg --initrd [05:32] I have too. [05:32] But very cheap dodgy CDR [05:32] Ron_o: sony cdrw 700mb [05:32] no [05:32] lgc: yw. later :) [05:32] screen savers [05:32] games [05:32] they all freeze [05:32] Alright, I added something to my crontab, but it's not executing. cron.allow and cron.deny didn't exist, so I created the former with my username in it. Still nothing... What next? [05:33] RobNyc: please try a CD-R and see if that happens. [05:33] RobNyc: Well, maybe Sony puts DRM in their blank discs now :D [05:33] works === MagicFab [n=] has joined #ubuntu [05:33] pawan do you know how to fix it === jmworx [n=] has joined #ubuntu [05:33] Aegir: gonna try another cdrw [05:33] make sure DAO is checked. [05:33] atrophic: did you want to execute it as root as user? [05:33] simonvallore : you using a p4? [05:33] hello from Montreal [05:33] what worked for me finally was using a music CD-R... [05:33] pawan, no athlon xp [05:33] MagicFab: hello [05:34] RobNyc: Personally, the CD burning app I use is the one where you right click on a image in GNOME, and burn it from there. Works every time. No fancy settings, just sane defaults === michaeltrainor [n=] has joined #ubuntu [05:34] pawan, ati radeon 9000 64 mb card [05:34] cool [05:34] Aegir: im gonna redownload and use a diff. cd [05:34] that reminds me. is there a FAQ for Ubuntu for getting the CD SCSI emulation working? [05:35] simonvallore : I've been getting freezes, and searching the forums for a solution. A lot of people seem to have freezes that they blame on p4 hyperthreading. But that is obviously not the case here. === guignome [n=] has joined #ubuntu [05:35] Anybody ever setup a DVR with DVD recording support? [05:35] pawan: are you using binary-only graphics drivers?

[05:38] michaeltrainor: the current Linux Journal has some good articles on it [05:38] mad, yes. [05:38] it was like 15 minutes.. [05:38] michaeltrainor: there's even a LiveCD to try [05:38] atrophic: it's better to set the editor variable to your fave editor first [05:38] robotgeek, thanks. I found the problem though, I had the path to the script wrong. If I didn't do the -u username thing, is it running it as root? [05:38] MagicFab: Thanks alot... [05:38] michaeltrainor: and it's a package available on Ubuntu [05:38] robotgeek, yup, it's already using gedit. [05:38] pawan how do i zap my x lol [05:38] Ron_o: are your printer & scanner on the wiki's hardware pages yet? [05:38] The thing is the instructions given to me didn't work in sudo; I had to be in total root for it to work. [05:39] crimsun : I'm embarrassed to admit it, cos it seems like voodoo. I run this script: until [ 1 -eq 0 ] ; do ( hwclock 2>&1 ; date +%c 2>&1 ) >> timelogs ; sleep 2; done & and then tail -f timelogs. No freezes since then. But I may be on the tail end of a bell size curve of crashes vs time. [05:39] Madpilot: no... [05:39] I have a problem that old print jobs don't clear out of the queue, so the next job doesn't print. I have to clear them out manually. Anyone else seen this? [05:39] speaking of printers, How do I set up my printer to be shared on the network? [05:39] I was hoping someone else could put them there.

[05:41] crimsun : it may be the constant access is in someway stopping a freeze. Very strange. But it seems to have stopped the freeze so far. Crazy.

[06:00] jrsims, let me rephrase that, i have not seen such a thing, lol, you didn't ask for my opinion afterall :) [06:00] google for it and check out the thread on ubuntuforums (should be top result). It adds a bunch of usability stuff === twidget [n=] has left #ubuntu ["Leaving"] [06:01] Corrupter, One of my favorite programs to play with is Hydrogen, a drum kit machine. [06:01] is automatix like synaptic? [06:01] does it use apt-get? [06:01] ok dudes, I need to reinstall grub. I dont have a standard installation as far as I can tell. I am dual booting with winxp. Here is my partition table: can someone help me sift through this to make sure installing grub wont mess something up? [06:01] holycow: yeah, I'm just really curious about how the two stack up.

[06:02] jrsims: slightly [06:02] ClayG, yes, it adds a bunch of sources and then apt-gets all the things you told it you wanted. It's a script to automate adding a bunch of commonly used things.

[06:04] jrsims: this is more like... reminiscing, i haven't used Linux since waaaaaaay back in the day when it was more text than gui, since i was like... 14 i think [06:04] Corrupter: ok [06:05] Corrupter: yeah, things have changed a lot since then. :) [06:05] i dont understand.. how is it that ext3 is a module with the default ubuntu kernel and not built-in if the filesystem for the boot (root partition) is ext3? and then if i build-in ext3 it complains on boot about not being able to find the ext3 module (and the modules.dep file not existing) ?

[06:07] Corrupter, or you can install it yourself. Check for it in synaptic [06:07] pztak: no, i was just guessing. sorry [06:07] when printing from a program like GnuCash how can I select another printer besides the default? [06:07] I like this, this is somethig i was wanting to get [06:07] the good stuff you want as soon as you re-install [06:08] i can't find automatix [06:08] it aint in there [06:08] [06:08] Isn't the 2.6 kernel in breezy? === navarone [n=] has joined #ubuntu === gpd [n=] has joined #ubuntu [06:08] go there and look at the bottom left hand corner, download it.

[06:21] lol cool [06:21] third time's a charm [06:21] navarone: but that only has qtparted [06:21] ClayG: something about the --force-all option that is in them [06:22] :( [06:22] couldn't a person run the installer and go thru the resize partiion bit and back out after partion is writtenm and before actual install? [06:22] I had a bad feeling about that kids picture [06:22] !ati [06:22] ati is, like, at or [06:23] ClayG: if it's still d/l pkgs, stop it [06:23] i just did [06:23] Is it possible to enable 3d graphics acceleration without the proprietary ati drivers? I just put in a newer and much better card, and it performs much slower [06:23] it was like prolly half way through [06:24] ClayG: if it was still d/l it didnt --force-all anything [06:24] x is very new to me. I prefer the shell [06:24] then why did i stop it? [06:24] what's the --force-all do? [06:24] ClayG: at least if it was written responsibly it didnt [06:24] He's saying your man's script is a trojan [06:24] atrophic: Ignore dependencies === ficusplanet [n=] has joined #ubuntu [06:24] atrophic: --force-all breaks things. it overwrites system files whether it's a good idea or not [06:24] does automatix use --force-all? === dewd [n=] has joined #ubuntu [06:25] ClayG: no. i'm saying it's not the most sane thing to do, esp when we have proven methods available here [06:25] SEJeff...i look at it this way...some people are more visual so they like a gui and others are more into letters and such so they lean towards cli [06:25] atrophic: you can --force-all a powerpc binary into a x86 box and really screw things up (or vice versa) [06:25] I tried to compile ettercap (make) but it doesent work -> does anybody know this error? === krischan [n=] has joined #ubuntu [06:26] ok - this is freaking weird... I seem to be able to tune my AMD64's clockspeed with cpufreq-selector... funky === Agrajag [n=] has joined #ubuntu [06:26] i searched the script for -force--all and didnt find it [06:26] navarone: I am a 'nix systems admin. I just updated my video card from a Radeon 7500 to an ati 9250. Now x runs slower and 3ddesktop complains about 3d hardware accleeration [06:26] or even the word force [06:27] think it's still dangerous? [06:27] what program can I use to modify iso files? (add files to an ISO, etc.) [06:27] z3r0x: it's in the repos [06:27] nalioth, well that's all well and good, but does automatix actually do that? The system I used it one was admittedly new, but I had 0 problems with it. [06:27] ClayG: have fun. i've spoken from experience with all the folks in here that have run "easy scripts" === bluefoxicy [n=] has joined #ubuntu [06:27] I bought this card because it is supposed to support EXA well [06:27] z3r0x: enable universe [06:27] robotgeek, yes but I guess not with ssl support [06:27] ClayG: and had their boxes messed up [06:28] z3r0x: first do a 'sudo apt-get build-dep ettercap' to install the dependencies [06:28] z3r0x: you might also need libssl-dev, i guess [06:28] yes [06:28] robotgeek, I'll try it thx [06:28] hmm, I may just use the scripts sources.lsit [06:29] lsit [06:29] er whatever [06:29] hehe === epistax [n=] has joined #ubuntu [06:29] atrophic: lots of folks have been in here with broken systems from using "easy scripts", and i dont understand it, cuz we have safe proven methods to get the stuff in place already === Jimb0b [n=] has joined #ubuntu [06:29] I used alot of the stuff from the guide [06:29] mplayer doesn't work in mozilla [06:29] ClayG: using non ubuntu repos is not advised, either [06:29] robotgeek, I run the command. and now? [06:30] can anyone please tell me how I can add files to an ISO? === concept10 [n=] has joined #ubuntu [06:30] I'd like to start editing kernel configuration options from the ubuntu default, is there a kernel package that'll get me a source there? [06:30] ok, i have a bit problem [06:30] nalioth, But adding 30 things manually is so much less fun ;) I guess you just have to trust the scripter if you're lazy enough to use it. [06:30] z3r0x: sudo apt-get install libssl-dev , then ./configure && make && sudo checkinstall === siggen [n=sigg3n@] has joined #ubuntu [06:30] Hello, a question if I may. === DShepherd [n=] has joined #ubuntu [06:30] blanky: [06:30] siggen, ask away [06:31] Corrupter: You don't know how to get the kernel package and you want to change it? Sounds like you're going to break things [06:31] To become an ubuntu developer would would it take? [06:31] Also, where would I have to go? [06:31] SEJeff> check this thread and see if anything pertains to you...or gives any ideas [06:31] atrophic: we usually have to help the folks who's box gets trounced, tho [06:31] hey [06:31] robotgeek, where can I find the source? [06:31] sejeff: wtf? [06:31] you are required to ask questions here :> [06:31] sejeff: i never said anything about that... [06:31] nalioth, understood. It hadn't occured to me that they caused problems. Perhaps I should stop recommending automatix in here. [06:31] z3r0x: apt-get source ettercap === dts [n=] has joined #ubuntu [06:31] Corrupter: stupid autocomplete, sorry [06:32] has anyone used unison [06:32] atrophic: or perhaps write your own responsible script using safe methods? === munkay [n=] has joined #ubuntu [06:32] siggen: just develop :) [06:32] epistax: You don't know how to get the kernel package and you want to change it? Sounds like you're going to break things [06:32] nalioth, so you know that automatix does not use "safe methods"? [06:32] SEJeff: New to apt-get and ubunu, not linux :P [06:32] ubuntu :P [06:32] any college kids here [06:32] nalioth, but a) that defeats the purpose of being lazy and b) why would anybody trust me more than they'd trust the maker of automatix? [06:32] i have a problem, when i try to do updates or download something using synaptic, about 8 sites say they were unable to connect due to 404 errors [06:32] concept10: me [06:32] nalioth: What I ment was, a program or something, a method, etc., that lets me add files to an ISO [06:33] robotgeek, so it's not like gentoo and what not? [06:33] ClayG: obviously it doesnt check for enough variables or folks wouldnt be in here with problems [06:33] Corrupter, you ever used gnu/scheme? [06:33] epistax: apt-cache search kernel will give you what you need. I'll let you find it :-) [06:33] blanky: read the wiki, it tells you how [06:33] concept10 [06:33] concept10: no [06:33] siggen: what do u mean? === drcode [n=user1@] has joined #ubuntu [06:33] oh you have heard others say that they had problems with automatix === loorni [i=] has joined #ubuntu [06:33] it does awww, I cant find where [06:33] I guess I will just install it from the dapper repository [06:33] hi guys. does anyone here know much about linux file systems? [06:34] munkay: just ask the question :) [06:34] anybody know what i should do? [06:34] munkay> don't get em started...;) [06:34] siggen: also join #ubuntu-devel [06:34] ahh [06:34] is it safe to resize the root partition in windows (partition magic) [06:34] :) [06:34] robotgeek, I still get this error while trying to run make. But I run configure with a few options [06:34] thanks [06:34] !tell Corrupter about repos [06:34] atrophic: ClayG: do as you will, i just speak from the "after" side of the scripts [06:34] siggen: #ubuntu-motu is where you need to go to get started [06:34] z3r0x: have no clue [06:34] ha. sorry. i have 4 drives. 300 + 250 + 250 + 200. I want to set them up as a file server. Holding mostly large files (100-1000 meg). which file system would you suggest [06:35] i cant decide between xfs or reiser3 [06:35] nalioth, I understand your position. I think we're just wanting to know if it's automatix specifically that you've heard people have trouble with [06:35] Ok nalioth, I'm using it now [06:35] robotgeek, it works now...without options in configure [06:36] z3r0x: hmm, cool [06:36] munkay: reiser is best for small files. ext3 is battlehardened and works like a champ regardless. xfs was designed for large files. A 1GB file isn't very large though [06:36] Nice, everything worked smoothly. Lets see if my mplayer plugin works now === RRubin [n=] has joined #ubuntu [06:36] good test is goto and goto the movie gallery [06:36] is there a way to send a message/alert to all users on a network (or a specific IP) in X? [06:36] that didn't really help much... [06:36] okay so if i had say thousands of files between 5-10 megs each. you would suggest reiser for that drive? [06:37] sortof like net send in dos i guess [06:37] and xfs for the larger file drives? [06:37] pppoe_dude: theres a port of that for linux but it doesnt run by defaulet [06:37] how do i do any of this? === m0zone [n=] has joined #ubuntu [06:37] Corrupter, do any of what?

If you are using IDE or SATA, the differences are minimal with reiser vs xfs vs the world [06:38] robotgeek, do I have to do something after sudo checkinstall? [06:38] RRubin, does it send to linux users? [06:38] munkay: Thats my experience, ymmv [06:38] pppoe_dude: if they run the client [06:38] ClayG, they do for me [06:38] oh wait! [06:38] It's working now [06:38] RRubin ok [06:38] had to close FF and reload it, forgot about that [06:38] nalioth: sorry for the annoyance, but I'm kind of in a hurry, thanks for the help. But could you give me an example command for the following situation: I have an ISO, and I want to add a file to the ISO [06:38] NICE MAN [06:38] automatix is AWSOME! [06:38] z3r0x: did it say installation successful? if so, copy the deb somewhere safe and keep it away :) [06:38] when i try to do updates or install something, it tell me i have like 8 404 errors [06:39] ca any one here help me out to get Azureus running on my udbuntu box? [06:39] things actually work, think of it as an updated, current version of ubuntuguide, but automated [06:39] SEJeff: ah. so ext3 is just as good you say? im asking because i also want to beagle-index the whole thing [06:39] blanky: i dont remaster cds. i just point people to the link [06:39] Corrupter: change mirrors [06:39] robotgeek, yes it was successful. [06:39] how? and to what? [06:39] SEJeff: and beagle works fine with ext3 right now (im running it on my laptop) [06:39] ubotu: tell ClayG about ubuntuguide [06:39] z3r0x: that's it, you should be able to run it [06:39] Synaptic can't find azureus weh I search for it === thrice` [n=User@unaffiliated/Thr1cE] has joined #ubuntu [06:39] Automatix = UbuntuGuidexVersion 2 on steroids === ubuntuking [n=] has joined #ubuntu [06:40] munkay: Just make sure to put user_xattr in your /etc/fstab so that beagles extra metadata searching/indexing works [06:40] Corrupter: synaptic, settings, repositories [06:40] oh well [06:40] munkay: Yes, that would work fine [06:40] ok, well, i checked all the repositories... and like 15 of them failed [06:40] i checked all the files and they said faield next to half of them [06:41] Iguananed, you need to enable a repository that has it. [06:41] Corrupter: which mirror are you using? [06:41] SEJeff: where do the adv/disadv of reiser/xfs come into play then, if they are same as ext3 for this use? [06:41] i don't know [06:41] corrupter, how about at least using the sources.list in automatix [06:41] atrophic: do youknow which one I need to enable? [06:41] you will have a much wider selection [06:41] wtf, give me a break, i'm an utter n00b === ulcaRSiA [n=iorfmfvi@] has joined #ubuntu === ulcaRSiA [n=iorfmfvi@] has left #ubuntu [] [06:41] Corrupter: using non ubuntu repos will have negative effects on your machine. i guarantee it. [06:42] Corrupter: theres a file called /etc/apt/sources.list. in it is a list of repositories. is the default for us people [06:42] munkay: reiser was designed to work well for smaller files and speed. It more efficiently compacts smaller files and saves space if you have thousands of small files [06:42] SEJeff: how small is small === dpirotte [n=] has joined #ubuntu [06:42] SEJeff: a few k, or a few megs? [06:42] ClayG: does automatix use non-Ubuntu repos? (just curious...) [06:42] munkay: Less than a meg generally [06:42] how can I unmount something [06:42] munkay, think webservers with thousands of html pages [06:43] Madpilot: i'm sure it does, it installs all those codecs and all [06:43] IguanaNed, sorry, I don't know which repository I got it from. === RobNyc [n=] has left #ubuntu ["Leaving"] [06:43] what's the unmoutn command [06:43] SEJeff: gotcha. and xfs is opposite. large db files etc [06:43] SEJeff: rite?

[06:43] blanky: or eject /dev/cdrom also works [06:44] munkay, Silicon Graphics designed xfs to work with their giga/tera byte movie files on their custom Irix operating system. They open sourced xfs when they started building linux clusters [06:44] IguanaNed, all of the default ones, yes. You can even add additional ones manually if you choose, though nalioth swears it negatively effects your system. [06:44] munkay, it was designed for massive files === Astxist [n=] has joined #Ubuntu [06:44] scared it says it doesnt exist [06:44] Pilot give me one second and I'll post what It uses [06:44] media/cdrom0 or media/cdrom doesnt exist (it says) [06:44] Madpilot, yes, it uses non-ubuntu repos [06:45] blanky: just type 'mount' to see if it's mounted [06:45] ? what BitTorrent client are ppl using here? [06:45] oh nevermind, I was in my home dir that's why [06:45] all i'm using is the original repositories from ubuntu, i haven't changed anything [06:45] ClayG: pastebin or just post a URL - no need to flood the channel [06:45] it just keeps giving me the error that it can't connect [06:45] maybe just a show of hands? === munkay [n=] has left #ubuntu ["Ex-Chat"] [06:45] atrophic: it will cause a conflict in the upgrade process. depending on the amount of non ubuntu pkgs and the level of the pkg, it may bring the box to a "frozen" position [06:45] IguanaNed: either rufus or btdownloadcurses [06:45] where is the ubuntu forum [06:45] munkay, ext3 was designed to add journalling capabilities to ext2. I would dare to say that ext3 is the most stable fs while reiser is one of the least. I've heard several horror stories about reiser eating filesystems === munkay [n=] has joined #ubuntu [06:45] woulodnt iit be in the "community" tab? i dont see it [06:45] That's what I'm doing, that is what is taking longer - thanks for the tip [06:45] d03boy: [06:45] SEJeff: thanks === james__ [n=] has joined #ubuntu [06:46] SEJeff: looks like i'll stick reiser for my smaller drive and ext3 for the rest === robotgeek is lucky that reiser hasn't eaten my drive yet :) [06:46] munkay: The bottleneck is your disk. Unless you are using very expensive and VERY fast disks like fibrechannel, you won't notice a huge difference with anything [06:46] SEJeff: ah. so the better alternative is just to ext3 the damn things, and go with what's reliable [06:46] this is my first IRC message 'hello world' [06:47] james__: we can see you [06:47] i disagree with SEJeff [06:47] james__, wrong syntax, try echo "hellow world"; [06:47] god, these pastebin servers are slow [06:47] munkay, do the research yourself.

[06:47] how can I use samba === wjb [n=] has joined #ubuntu [06:48] atrophic: using non ubuntu pkgs causes dependency errors and will cause the box to not upgrade at some point [06:48] blanky: swat? === twigsby [n=] has joined #ubuntu [06:48] holycow, let me see if I can find the quote from Hans Reiser about focusing on speed moreso than stability on LKML... [06:48] "kind of mess with" = "broke" [06:48] well, last night everybody on here was trying to help me enable universe, then everything just went fCking nuts with it [06:48] i changed like 1 # and then the whole thing was 100% different when i went back to it [06:48] SEJeff: true. but thanks for the info. first hand experience is just as valuable too. [06:48] lol indeed, munkay generally you will see two types of users out there, reiser haters, and then those of us who use it. it's not that their opinion/experience is invalid but it would help to reasearch it a bit more before condemming one on hearsay [06:48] SEJeff,holycow : please take that offtopic, though [06:48] blanky: For administration use swat. For mounting samba shares you can go Places->Connect to server [06:48] wow [06:48] [06:48] nalioth, what do you suggest if the packages you want aren't in the ubuntu repos? [06:48] thanks [06:48] atrophic: what pkgs are those? [06:49] so... ummm... any idea's of what to do? [06:49] holycow: You are making bad assumptions. I never said I hated reiser. I said it is less stable than ext3. That is a fact [06:49] atrophic: join me in #ubuntu-offtopic please [06:49] Corrupter: paste your sources.list into pastebin === Jimbob_ [n=] has joined #ubuntu [06:49] SEJeff, cool, we can leave it at that, i just wanted to toss in a vote for the otehr side :) [06:49] my sources.list is read only how can I modify it? [06:50] IguanaNed: sudo [06:50] holycow: fair enough [06:50] Corrupter: check your sources.list against this one: - assuming you're running 5.10 (Breezy) [06:50] sudo gedit sources.lsit [06:50] IguanaNed: 'sudo vi /etc/apt/sources.list' [06:50] Corrupter: the repository servers are having a bit of a hiccup atm [06:50] haha thanks. i think there's votes for both sides already. === twigsby [n=] has joined #ubuntu [06:51] Corrupter: you are not the first user in the past few hours to not be able to connect [06:51] i wouldn't be considering reiser if i didnt already read up as much useful stuff and still seemed like all 3 fs do the job equally well :| [06:51] i had no real basis to pick either, so i figured i'd ask someone here === Danny| [n=Danny|] has joined #ubuntu [06:51] well, i couldn't last night either === ditesh|cassini [n=ditesh@] has joined #ubuntu [06:52] munkay, that is pretty much what my experience has been overall as well [06:53] munkay, like I also said. you won't notice a difference between filesystems speedwise. reiser compacts small files better and saves space. But you need thousands of small files for that to matter [06:53] well i have around 25 thousand [06:53] what SEJeff SAID [06:53] :) [06:54] ok, yeah, i'm missing several dozen of these sites [06:54] sorry for caps [06:54] heh [06:54] can someone give me a cop of their sources.list file so i can just copy and past into mine?

For those of you who do like to run near 10 terminals at a time, what programs are you running? [07:23] I tried to upgrade Hoary to Breezy, and run into some problems.

[08:24] aftertaf: limewire.. the only options are .rpm and .zip unfortunately [08:24] any chance of something going wrong...? [08:25] what is limewire? [08:25] onkarshinde: you use mtnl triband ? thats what i am using === BuKse [n=xitubooh@] has joined #ubuntu [08:25] rohan: Then use 'sudo pppoeconf' It will ask about boot startup option. Say no. And then you can start your connection anytime with 'pon dsl-provider' [08:25] aftertaf: p2p networking [08:25] rohan: one thing to do would be to find out what lines the gui puts in there, then remove the auto eth0, and then sudo ifup eth0 to connect [08:25] xxvii: and better to use tarballs, rpms arent packaged for debian systems. [08:25] aftertaf it's a p2p client === BuKse is now known as beseaeaoki === beseaeaoki [n=xitubooh@] has left #ubuntu [] [08:25] rohan: I am using BSNL boradband (Dataone) [08:25] mcadory> I agree...i thought mandrake was tops for user friendliness and overall feel, but not any more [08:25] ubotu tell xxvii about limewire [08:25] onkarshinde: yes, the same thing. [08:25] rohan: dialup? aamchi mumbai? [08:25] lol [08:26] ubotu tell atrophic about limewire [08:26] mcadory, it's all good... thanks for your help [08:26] robotgeek: yep, mumbai. you too ? [08:26] so what are the chances of my partitions screwing up if i use gparted? [08:26] xxvii: you see the link ubotu sent you? [08:26] dducko: thanks [08:26] rohan: originally hyd. now TX [08:26] I just installed, on my old iMac, it's very nice. [08:26] aftertaf: yea === DShepherd [n=] has joined #ubuntu [08:26] xxvii, You get the /msg from the bot? [08:26] Corrupter: considering your username, depends on latent bad luck i suppose ;) [08:26] Corrupter: what partition do you want to resize? [08:26] robotgeek: ifup eth0 does not call dhclient. [08:26] ick, cant seem to change themes after breezy update [08:26] and welcome [08:26] rohan, so write a script [08:26] in other words, i'm boned [08:26] rohan: i tht you were using ethernet. that will not work === Inzion [n=Inzion@] has joined #ubuntu [08:26] aftertaf: i used to have my ubuntu system set up with limewire a while back.. but that was a long time ago.. getting refreshed on all the stuff i forgot [08:26] dducko: yea, thanks man [08:26] robotgeek: i am on ethernet. eth0. === pawan [n=pawan@] has joined #ubuntu [08:27] rohan: Please refer to my reply. It works exactly as you want [08:27] z3r0x: i like using the gui :( [08:27] onkarshinde i have a 17 GB Windows XP partition, and a 3 GB Linux partition, my Linux partition just ran out of space and Windows needs to die anyways [08:27] how can I find alist of all the processes that start up? [08:27] where can I find a doc explaining the ubuntu version numbers and names ? [08:27] Corrupter: hehe nah... its not hard and the tools are stable enough for a lot of people to use them. always have a backup of things your life would be ruined by osing, you can have a power cut in mid resize and tyou're cooked ;) [08:27] anyone know how to fix the incorrect display frames in the console? [08:27] xxvii> if you are looking for nice p2p client try frontend for gnutella...has a windows flav as well [08:27] linuxboy: its a year/month thing, and the names are for fun :) [08:27] onkarshinde: problem is, i dont have to dial and all. === sunrex [n=sunrex@] has joined #ubuntu [08:27] onkarshinde: it is as good as a eth0 connection [08:27] navarone: can i apt it? [08:27] Corrupter: Instead of resizing you can make separate partitions for /usr /home etc. That is how I work. [08:27] ivan_: what is your default locales? [08:27] onkarshinde: as the modem is connected to lan card [08:27] atrophic: I want a link to it [08:28] does ati drivers run on ubuntu 64bit? [08:28] linuxboy, the version number is the Year (05) followed by the month october (10) so 5.10 [08:28] rohan: Yes I know. All dsl works same way.

[08:28] i need to take away from 1 and give to another, ya know, like Robin hood, just with Linux [08:28] !ati [08:28] methinks ati is at or [08:28] dducko: I wans a link to a doc explaining it. for someone else [08:28] ivan_: any language on top of that? or pure utf8 [08:28] take away form the rich (Windows) and give to the poor (Linux) [08:28] I should hope so, Corrupter :-) [08:28] mcadory, thanks === osmandemirhan [n=] has joined #ubuntu [08:29] onkarshinde: are you sure i need ppoeconf ? i have removed pp services from startup, using sysv-rc-conf === siYeiei [i=emouoB@] has joined #ubuntu [08:29] Corrupter: I mean delete windows partition them make more than one partitions for /usr /home etc. Transfer your current data to them and add lines to fstab so that they mount next time you boot. === siYeiei [i=emouoB@] has left #ubuntu [] [08:29] Corrupter: you'l have no problems doing that. but set it out on papaer what you want to do beforehand. [08:29] aftertaf: en_US.UTF-8 [08:29] mcadory, worse comes to worse, i can use the mac os === robotgeek [n=] has left #ubuntu [] === arun [n=arun@] has joined #ubuntu [08:29] marco: try kill -9 ######, what ever the process #'s are, then re run the app. I think an update and reboot are necessary though. [08:29] well i need Windows for certain things like writing Visual Basic and C++ apps [08:29] rohan: No harm in trying. I will be back after 1/2 hour. === Jimbob_ [n=] has joined #ubuntu [08:29] can't do that on Linux too well [08:29] ivan_: and you dont have a ny error messages about locales, just messy ncurses stuff, right? [08:29] mcadory, ok === xukun [n=] has joined #ubuntu === aJegZri [n=iolbol@] has joined #ubuntu [08:29] Corrupter: one day ;) [08:30] aftertaf: yes === onkarshinde [n=onkarshi@] has left #ubuntu [] === darkmatter [n=] has joined #ubuntu [08:30] aftertaf: in xterm it shows ok, but in real console mode it doesn't [08:30] i think Linux will always kind of be for servers === aJegZri [n=iolbol@] has left #ubuntu [] [08:30] once Windows dies (counting down the minutes) Apple will just swoop in and pick up the pieces [08:30] ivan_: argh. that does suck. tried dpkg-reconfigures locales, just to regenerate them? [08:30] Corrupter: boo.... :) [08:31] xxvii> i mean, it would be nice if Linux were a more mainstream OS for desktops, but when i think Server, i think Linux [08:31] aftertaf: let me try [08:31] Corrupter: cos severs need to be robust. but that doesnt make it unsuitable for desktops. [08:32] corrupter: ubuntu is the slickes install i have seen to date. with a little more work in this direction, linux on the desktop in major #'s is a reality. [08:32] navarone: thanks man [08:32] xxvii> you can dl blackdown java from Add Applications [08:32] mcadory: i 2nd that ;) === darkmatter [n=] has left #ubuntu ["Leaving"] [08:32] i feel the same, Ubuntu has more compatibility than anything i've seen yet [08:32] but then again, i haven't used Linux since it was 50% code and 50% GUI [08:32] btw, anyone with a decent 3d card try a preview of the Lament screensaver [08:33] i am not a ble to run my run in ubuntu [08:33] xxvii> np [08:33] now it's like "what!? it goes STRAIGHT to the sign on screen!?!? IN COLOR!?!?!?!?!?!?" === markgrif looks at Corrupter [08:33] I have a pic as my desktop background but behind that...theres the brown.. how can I change that brown? [08:33] aru: please elaborate... ;) === brownie17 [n=] has joined #ubuntu [08:33] how can I find alist of all the processes that start up? [08:33] DShepherd: in /etc:init.d or with bum (boot up manager) [08:33] I remember back in the day when you had to manually start X [08:33] default breezy: how do I get postfix working in ubuntu? telnet localhost 25 says: telnet: Unable to connect to remote host: Connection refused [08:34] now it just goes straight to gnome or KDE [08:34] Corrupter: you can stop that though if you want ;) [08:34] lol, that ok [08:34] can anyone help? [08:34] see [08:34] people are stupid [08:34] as hell === fraser_ [n=] has joined #ubuntu [08:34] navarone: what's blackdown java? [08:34] so if it's easy, they will flock to it [08:34] how do i change the default brown on my desktop to some other colour === marlun [n=] has joined #ubuntu [08:35] ok.... how do i use etherconf to prevent my net from being activated at startup ? [08:35] Corrupter, have you tried mono? [08:35] i got called on a job once, the lady told me her coffee holder was broken, so i was like "Wtf?" so i go down there, and the lady had coffee covering her CD-rom drive [08:35] what is mono? [08:35] a .net development environment [08:35] you've got my attention... [08:35] xxvii> it's a version of Sun's Add Applications I think it is in the Internet/More Programs will ask if you want to enable multiverse that and apply install [08:36] Corrupter, that story is about 15 years old [08:36] what story? [08:36] oh [08:36] corrupter: not necessarily true. does it work, is it stable, can I use application XXX on it? if you can get 75% positive on those questions, then they will use it. [08:36] navarone: cool, got it, thanks again [08:36] xxvii> after that just run phex like I said and configure to your liking === Lehto [n=] has joined #ubuntu [08:36] ok.... how do i use etherconf to prevent my net from being activated at startup ? its a eth0 connection [08:36] xxvii> np duide [08:37] aftertaf: so how can I temporarily disable a process?

[08:37] rohan: Why don't you just remove the, "auto eth0" from /etc/network/interfaces? [08:37] mcadory, that's only three questions, to get 75% you have to say yes to all [08:37] there are a zillion postfix man pages. Aha. postfix start. [08:38] linuxboy, Funky Fairy === ifetendi [n=ojouuoim@] has joined #ubuntu [08:38] rob_p: if i use Sys -> admin. -> Networking to bring up or down the eth0 connection, it puts the line back in. === ifetendi [n=ojouuoim@] has left #ubuntu [] [08:38] how do i make grub load windows automatically instead of linux? [08:38] rohan: Then don't use the gui! You can do, "ifup eth0" when you want to bring it up. [08:38] rob_p: :S i like the gui :D === Nick1 [n=Nick@] has joined #ubuntu [08:39] rohan: er... "sudo ifup eth0" [08:39] All: I have an installation problem, trying to put Ubuntu 5.10 to PC, but installation hangs all the time at [11.76.255799] input:AT Translated Set 2 keyboard on isa0060/serio0 , then nothing.. tried up to 6 times now... [08:39] rohan, are you a windows user? ^^ [08:39] What do I need to play DVDs? I just want to be able to play DVDs for now so I don't want like every available codec, if its possible :) [08:39] rohan: Then just be sure to "deactivate" eth0 using the gui before shutting down and you'll be set! === kNmeyi [n=ojouuoim@] has joined #ubuntu [08:39] DShepherd: in the boot up? you either deactivate it or you leave it.... one will make it start on boot, and one will do nothing: you can run it manually... Is it sth you have running on boot you want to disable? === kNmeyi [n=ojouuoim@] has left #ubuntu [] [08:40] rohan: or "sudo ifconfig eth0 up" and then "sudo ifconfig eth0 down" to turn it off again. [08:40] aftertaf: same :( [08:40] marlun : ogle [08:40] how do i make grub load windows automatically instead of linux? [08:40] linuxboy, an even better link: [08:40] pawan, only ogle? no codecs and stuff? [08:40] aftertaf: whats' sth? [08:40] dducko: no Rampant Rhino in that list :-( [08:40] ivan_: ahh, then i'm all out of ideas. if possible get a scrennshot (though if it is console, not easy) and paste it to pastebin, that way you can ask a real expert later ... :/ === bball [i=] has joined #ubuntu [08:40] dducko: thanks [08:41] z3r0x: of course not. i am a slackware user :P [08:41] DShepherd: something in lazy keyboard-speak [08:41] thanks guys [08:41] aftertaf: ok ty [08:41] anyway guys .. gotta leave === Rasta [n=] has joined #ubuntu [08:41] thank for the help, all :) === Rasta [n=] has left #ubuntu ["Sto] [08:41] eric__: you edit your /boot/grub/menu.lst <- it has instructions ion the file.... but make a backup first === merp [i=ladrao@] has joined #ubuntu [08:42] Does the current Ubuntu use the same installer as the current Debian? [08:42] aftertaf, where can i find instructions or could you point me in the right direction, im just trying to fix this and go to sleep [08:42] !grub [08:42] methinks grub is or, or troubleshooting grub: [08:42] aftertaf: I am moving from windows to linux, new to ubuntu. using it for a month now or so.. i just want to know to do the things I can do in windows... and one of them is tweaking my boottime === indypende [n=] has joined #ubuntu [08:42] eric_: try [08:42] eric__: see the howto... i cant remember all the things you need to do and i dont dual boot at work [08:42] !grub [08:42] methinks grub is or, or troubleshooting grub: [08:43] merp: "current" referring to "previous stable," "current stable," or "current development?" [08:43] "Current Stable" and "Current Stable". [08:43] I'm gettint 404 not fouund errors for some of the backports package lists [08:43] later [08:43] merp: yes, "current" is based quite closely on d-i. [08:43] bball> I think those servers have been down most of the day [08:43] That's unfortunate. [08:44] ok [08:44] DShepherd: hehe i get ya ;). but beware of comparing all in linux to windows, a lot of things are just different..... someone gave me a link to apage that really explained things very well in that way. === tvo [n=] has joined #ubuntu [08:44] !lnw [08:44] aftertaf: No idea [08:44] !linuxnotwindows [08:44] from memory, linuxnotwindows is [08:44] aftertaf: yeah i know.... [08:44] D-I likes to time-out on all of the packages on the netinst, and fails on all servers atleast once, then doesn't try to redownload them. [08:44] merp: I don't see it that way, but I'm sure you have your reasons for thinking that. We have massive installer upgrade-fu in the works for Dapper. [08:44] is debian itself really alot harder to understand, considering ubuntu is just a branch? [08:45] is that where the win32 codecs are ? I'm trying to get the codec packages listed on the unofficial starter guide [08:45] I'm currently coming from Slackware and wanting a change. [08:45] fraser_: no, and no (Ubuntu is not so much a branch as it is a sister project) [08:45] Debian just wasn't working. [08:45] pawan, what could be wrong if I get no sound? The video is playing but theres no sound. === cryptom [n=] has joined #ubuntu [08:45] Debian would install the system itself, but never be able to install X. [08:45] aftertaf: like for example, I like this windows app clipomatic. quite nice, It stores clipboard entries... where can I get one for ubuntu === drcode [n=user1@] has joined #ubuntu [08:46] crimsun, ok, but alot alike? [08:46] it's probably trying to use oss when you have esd running [08:46] fraser_: fairly similar in many respects [08:46] I had no problems installing Slackware, but it corrupted two of my hard drives after a SlackPack upgrade. [08:46] marlun: you have to sacrifice a chicken, I think. === ditesh|cassini [n=ditesh@] has joined #ubuntu [08:46] My only choices left to consider are Ubuntu and Gentoo. [08:47] If the Ubuntu installer works, that would be nice. [08:47] But, if it is based on the Debian installer, I'm afraid it won't work for me. [08:47] pawan, sacrifice a chicken? =) === uny [n=] has joined #ubuntu [08:47] Shepherd > I find some people remain using windows because they would like to continue chatting and such with people using windows only [08:47] marlun: kill off any other sound application, restart the player. failing that, crank up the volume with alsamixer and try again. [08:47] pawan, seems drastic :P === mrflip [n=] has joined #ubuntu === EdLin [n=] has joined #ubuntu [08:47] pawan, ok, i'll try [08:48] I miss Linux so much. [08:48] marlun : is mp3 stuff playing? [08:48] merp: why? The idea is that we provide 1 CD from which to install a fully usable desktop environment. You don't need an active Internet connection to install it at all. [08:48] I used "install DVDs" for Debian too. [08:48] It would by default try to connect to the security servers for updates. [08:48] heck if you wanted, you pretty much can take any Debian-based system and {dist,cross}-upgrade it to a Ubuntu one === maximaus [n=] has joined #ubuntu [08:49] Once it downloaded a portion of a package it would without telling me it doesn't exist try to install the entire operating system and then just not work. [08:49] what command for extracting from .zip file? [08:49] merp: then simply install Ubuntu directly from the burned image without an active 'net connection. Again as I've mentioned, there's massive installer-fu in the works for Dapper. [08:49] has anyone tried kubuntu and if so what differences in them? === unclefrank [n=] has joined #ubuntu === fabbione [n=] has joined #ubuntu [08:50] xxvii, unzip [08:50] navarone: KDE-based environment. [08:50] navarone: kubuntu just uses KDE instead of Gnome as its default DE [08:50] ... Installer-what? [08:50] EdLin: thanks [08:50] merp: hah. That's what you get if you mix stable with unstable. Give yourself a good spanking. [08:50] merp: installer work [08:50] has anybody here attempted to compile the ivtv 3.8 drivers with ubuntu? === jcape [n=] has joined #ubuntu [08:50] crimsun> yes...but what differences as far as drain and resources and memory and such? [08:50] im out [08:50] navarone, you can have Kubuntu installed under regular Ubuntu and choose your session upon login [08:50] pawan: I only used stable. [08:50] nite!!! [08:50] navarone: that depends on what you choose to install === DShepherd [n=] has left #ubuntu [] === Hobbsee [n=] has joined #ubuntu [08:51] pawan: I haven't used Ubuntu... only Debian. === jenda [n=] has joined #ubuntu [08:51] merp: stable doesn't behave like taht in debian. [08:51] yo folks. [08:51] I kinda like gnome...has enough to do the job...but not enough distractions to get me in trouble [08:51] o_O === maximaus has regular, Kubuntu, and Xubuntu installed for exploration, all are great, but he prefers the standard Gnome. === jose [n=] has joined #ubuntu [08:51] Unless there was a recent update in the last week, it sure does for me. [08:51] Anyone know the proper fstab entry for a reiserfs /home? (OH, and do join the marketing team :)) === pantokrator [n=] has joined #ubuntu [08:52] [08:52] I got the image from here. [08:52] I doubt they would torrent unstables. [08:53] why did ubuntu have to fuck up ldap ? [08:53] there are snapshots of unstable available [08:53] merp, forgive me for asking, but what do your Debian-specific questions have to do with Ubuntu? [08:53] If so, I didn't use them. [08:53] merp: you don't have a default system then. Debian stable has changes in security, but those are minor changes, unless you have botched apt configuration stuff. [08:53] MrFarts: I don't know, why haven't you pointed me to a bugzilla entry that you've filed? === pantokrator [n=] has left #ubuntu [] [08:54] xxvii> Let me know how the phex thing goes. I had v2.0.0.6 for windows for quite some time...It's up to v2.8 [08:54] EdLin: I am wondering if the same install issues will happen when I try to install Ubuntu. I don't want to waste the time, blank discs, or hard drive space. [08:54] crimsun, because the bug is that the configuration is non-standard and there is no documentation [08:54] what the the hell is @BACKEND@ [08:54] MrFarts: where's the bug that you filed? [08:54] merp, well, since I haven't had install issues with either one I can't help you on that. ;-) [08:54] the openldap site doesn't say anything about this directive/variable [08:54] or whatever the fuck it is [08:54] merp: ubuntu is a no brainer to install on desktops. It may have a problem with some laptops. That's why the live cds are great for testing. === noirequus is now known as nalioth [08:54] MrFarts: I presume you've pored over the documentation in /usr/share/doc/$package/ [...] === BeueXV [n=gugaqu@] has joined #ubuntu === BeueXV is now known as Fhuuranno === Fhuuranno [n=gugaqu@] has left #ubuntu [] [08:55] pawan: Does it allow full control of the installation? === Fhuuranno [n=gugaqu@] has joined #ubuntu === Fhuuranno is now known as iuoiaar === iuoiaar [n=gugaqu@] has left #ubuntu [] [08:55] pawan> most problems i had run into were solved with little googling and searching forums [08:55] navarone: i'm getting an error when i type in /java -jar phex.jar in the directory that phex.jar is located in [08:55] I like to pick my packages separately. === iuoiaar [n=gugaqu@] has joined #ubuntu === iuoiaar [n=gugaqu@] has left #ubuntu [] [08:55] xxvii> have you installed the java? [08:55] I prefer Slackware, but it did something unforgivable. [08:55] navarone: yup [08:56] Any reiserfs gurus around? [08:56] what error it give? === iuoiaar [n=gugaqu@] has joined #ubuntu [08:56] merp: you can always choose the 'expert' installation mode. Further, you can choose to install only the base, which omits the desktop. Then you can install whatever the heck you want. === highvolt1ge [n=Jono@] has joined #ubuntu [08:56] navarone: it says bash: /java: No such file or directory [08:56] merp: you get prompted on the install cd (not the live cd) for how to partition. So you can avoid wiping out MS windows at the right place. It is pretty obvious stuff. [08:56] xxvii, remove the / === lucaas [n=] has joined #ubuntu === iuoiaar [n=gugaqu@] has left #ubuntu [] [08:56] La_PaRCa: :) worked, thanks [08:56] crimsun, yes, there is fuck-all there [08:57] I have Windows and Linux on separate hard drives. [08:57] navarone : I only had hoary at the time with a laptop that barfed with Breezy would no doubt have worked fine. [08:57] navarone: thank you too [08:57] MrFarts: so file a bug, thanks [08:57] xxvii> in the directory you installed there is a documents folder. Go to the folder and open blahblahother.html explains the install and operation [08:57] crimsun, you are so helpful, jackass [08:57] I learned my lesson the other time from allowing write access to my Windows disc in Slackware. [08:58] It screwed up random sectors of both hard drives. [08:58] MrFarts: let's take a step back, shall we? I'm telling you what's likely to move things forward. [08:58] navarone: i got it.. just had to remove / from /java [08:58] okay [08:58] crimsun, you have no interesting in "moving things forward" [08:58] crimsun, you just get off on being a prick [08:58] crimun: That's much like most installers I'm familiar with. [08:58] MrFarts, what happened with openldap? [08:58] MrFarts: no, I'm actually quite serious about your filing a bug. [08:58] navarone : so anyway, I told the person to get a free ubuntu cd and do it themselves later when they got back home. I'd reckon they're using it now. [08:59] La_PaRCa, the configuration format used by ubuntu is not documented anywhere [08:59] La_PaRCa, they are using some strange directive format that i can't find either in the installed documentation or on the openldap site [08:59] file a bug and help get it fixed for Dapper. [08:59] MrFarts : yup, so file a bug [08:59] i have a strange problem with breezy. when i log into gnome normally, the keyboard doesn't work. logging in as gnome-failsafe works ok. where do i start looking in order to fix this problem. [08:59] pawan> good. [09:00] how do i manually eject a cdrom? [09:00] devint: eject [09:00] There are a little over a dozen core developers, and the rest of us involved with Ubuntu development can't track every bug that every user comes across if the user doesn't file a bug in the bugtracking system. === nomike [n=] has joined #ubuntu === DreamEater is now known as DreamEater|Away [09:01] pawan, no, I have not done anything for mp3 stuff to work yet, thought I would start with DVDs :) === DreamEater|Away is now known as DreamEater [09:01] hi === krak`nix [n=] has joined #ubuntu [09:01] ditesh> i would boot in fail safe and go to system/ preferences/ keyboard and provide accurate info for the keyboard. that may help [09:01] the pentium 4 process is a 686 class proccessor correct? [09:01] crimsun: that's a glaring flaw then, no? are more core developers needed? [09:01] anyway to make this command into an application launcher? java -jar phex.jar in the /home/phex/phex_2.8.2.92 [09:01] crimsun, why did you screw with LDAP for no good reason ?

[09:02] crimsun, the configuration i had worked fine for every other linux distribution i've tried it under [09:02] is there a tutorial? [09:02] marlun: try it just with xmms or whatever first then. See if your speakers are loud etc. Isolate the problem if you can. You know the score. [09:02] but ubuntu had to go their own way for smoething that worked before they fucked with it [09:02] xxvii> rename the phex... folder into simply phex...saves typing in the long [09:03] _h: man hdparm is your buddy [09:03] lol [09:03] what's worse is there is no documentation on this bizarre configuration [09:03] MrFarts: I'm sure there was a reason for it. Since you're displeased, file a bug and one of the responsible parties will be led in eventually. There's no sense in assaulting me personally as I had no hand in it. However, I want the distro to work as I am involved in other parts of its development. [09:03] (i know how to compile a kernel, I used gentoo before, but where do I get the complete source of the ubuntu kernel including all patches etc.) === DreamEater [n=] has joined #ubuntu [09:03] crimsun, this seems broken by approach more than anything [09:03] crimsun, it's mroe of a braindead way of going about things than a bug [09:03] xxvii> as far as i know uaing term to open phex is best...and term window will reamin open without cursor untill program exits. then you get prompt === GTroy [n=] has joined #ubuntu [09:04] crimsun, you make changes in standard software, you document them [09:04] MrFarts: then raise the issue on the ubuntu-devel mailing list === XThmaifLi [n=oiooie@] has joined #ubuntu === XThmaifLi [n=oiooie@] has left #ubuntu [] [09:04] navarone: ok, so there isnt a way to make an application launcher for it?

[09:04] pawan, ok [09:04] crimsun, ok, sorry, i overreacted at you [09:04] Hey, I have a computer running Breezy that keeps freezing hard. Any suggestions about how I can debug this? [09:05] MrFarts: np. [09:05] pingswept: p4 hyperthreading? [09:05] I don't see anything weird in /var/log/messages [09:05] crimsun, people are often quite patronizing on IRC channels [09:05] xxvii> I haven't done it xxvii...but if you do try checking the run in tyerminal box...that may do the trick. But I have not bothered. That's why i renamed the phex folder ;) [09:05] pawan: I don't think so, [09:05] pawan: actually, no. It's an Athlon. [09:06] Whats the big hooplah about Hyper Threading? Today is the first I've heard about it. [09:06] navarone: lol, k [09:06] pingswept: I seem to have got past the freezing by constantly accessing the bios like this: until [ 1 -eq 0 ] ; do ( hwclock 2>&1 ; date +%c 2>&1 ) >> timelogs ; sleep 2; done & - voodoo.

Haven't had it since I am doing that for the last two days. Beats me why it seems to work. It's the geek equivalent of waving a dead chicken in the air. [09:09] Aegir: some big company recently revealed some benchmarks that suggest that P4 hyperthreading actually slows down applications in many cases. I don't recall the details. [09:09] is there an easy way (from script) to get the length of an mp3 file?

I've gone through the controls to see that they are all up. :) === icarus [n=] has joined #ubuntu [09:10] pawan, found gstream-lame, seems promising, going to install it. [09:10] marlun: xmms doesn't use gstreamer. perhaps you are just using the wrong output plugin (alsa/esd/whatever you're using) [09:10] hi all [09:10] topyli, oh ;P damn [09:10] marlun : ok, that means alsa modules are there.

[09:11] pingswept : yup. You can even dev/null it. I was tail -f ing the thing to see if I had a crazy clock drift, and to see what froze. [09:11] pingswept: Ahhh. That was in regards to server tasks though wasn't it? My personal experiances with Hyper Threading on the desktop have usually been quite pleasent, especially as far as multi-tasking/processing. A friend of mine often brags that his HP processor allows him to run two cpu intensive games side by side, although I have severe doubts as to the legitimacy of that type of benchmark. === WildPenguin [n=] has joined #ubuntu [09:12] topyli, pawan, thanks for the help ;P works now, going to check the dvd sound now.

This is a 3x or 4x bootable machine. Using a grub provided by a debian on other partitions. [07:53] ah okay [07:54] MarcN, it doesn't crash after a number of resume cycles? [07:54] Loevborg: my grub is not in /boot/ but /debian/rootfs/boot/...

[10:04] oh, NoUse i c, nevermind [10:04] fevoldj2, the nomenclature can be a bit confusing and some of the windows docs are _very_ sloppy in their usage of terminology [10:04] NoUse, the compilation script complains about the "directory of kernel headers (version 2.6.12-9-686)" not matching my running kernel "version 2.6.12-10-686" -- and says it wouldn't work.

[10:12] under windows the samba show the printer, but message it's the result [10:13] paul__, I'm thinking perhaps you tell it that the monitor can do 16x12, but don't save it, so when it reboots, it reverts [10:13] sethk, I don't think so.

While the upgrade system knows about the new kernel which has to be installed (which as I just saw is a new package on its own as well, not just a new version of the same package name), the same mechanism doesn't work for the kernel-headers.

[10:59] sudo passwd root [10:59] it'll perform the root operation, and then log out back out === fluvvell [n=] has joined #ubuntu [10:59] the root password is what you set as your user password :) [10:59] whats the root password? [10:59] sudo is the same as su? So that is why all the help comands are prefixed with 'sido'...I get it! [10:59] no its not [10:59] Snellgrove: no it's not [10:59] oh :( [10:59] sudo uses ur user password [10:59] the first user created = super user powers usually in Ubuntu? [10:59] when using sudo..

Told you I was a bit rusty [11:12] paul__, normally it wouldn't matter but in this case I believe 3 is better [11:12] Welshwonder: you have to mount it first [11:12] blue-frog: ? [11:12] paul__, because 3 is basically "all the way up but not running graphics" === kennygow [n=] has left #ubuntu ["Leaving"] [11:12] Welshwonder: is it hdb?

It seems to be stuck on the slowest mhz? [11:13] i take it flash just doesnt work with sound under ubuntu?

[11:14] back in a bit [11:14] I have same problem as Moo, but my ubuntu will not play any form of music or media [11:14] SoulPropagation, depends on whether you start it from a terminal. If you do, then you can control-c it [11:14] sethk: i don't think so [11:14] about my question for pure data, I found the solution... that is to initialize snd_seq with modprobe. [11:14] mount: according to mtab, /dev/hda1 is mounted on /media/hda1 [11:14] Interesting, apt just attempted to remove ubuntu-desktop from my dapper box. Anyone can share some wisdom on this? [11:14] blue-frog: why? [11:14] SoulPropagation, try it. I just did [11:14] bah: media is overrated [11:14] SoulPropagation, you are probably confused about what I mean. Not the _window_, the terminal it is run from [11:15] lightbright: mount: according to mtab, /dev/hda1 is mounted on /media/hda1 [11:15] blue-frog: i've got them installed already === edgar [n=edgar@] has joined #ubuntu [11:15] jcole, u wanr the kernel source to be installed so u can compile some stuff, no?

[11:15] jcole, ah ok [11:15] is linux-wlan-ng included with the core disc installation? [11:15] <_jason> moo, in hoary I had to ln -s /usr/lib/ /usr/lib/ to get it to work, but there was no need in breezy. You can give it a try [11:15] blue-frog: some suff? [11:15] but I want to play .dat files... [11:15] SoulPropagation, yes, or just doing it at the command line after doing an su in a terminal === LjL [n=] has joined #ubuntu [11:15] blue-frog: the kernel [11:15] hm actually its not ubuntus fault [11:16] it was coming out of my other sound card === moo sheepish [11:16] jcole, want to compile kernel, sry then can't help [11:16] question is, why? since i have everything set NOT to use that card [11:16] i thought sound preferences in gnome determined that.. [11:16] I have been using Linux for 3 days now, and I have found EVERYTHING is my fault, not the Ubuntu's fualt...

[11:17] i get it when i try to boot off my usb stick that i got ubuntu to install grub on [11:17] thats the difference between windows and linux, windows protects you from your stupidity, linux just silently sits there and lets you fuck it all up [11:17] can you run linux or unix games on say windows? [11:17] <_jason> Grock, there is a way, but apt-get is a lot easier and better [11:17] firefox for example [11:17] Grock: put a .sh file on a website that opens a terminal and runs the apt-get install commands :) [11:18] gnomefreak: via qemu... yes [11:18] sethk, hmm, init 3 (and also telinit 3) seem to have left X running [11:18] moo: is so true...Linux is a very mean and hard OS..but I want to lrean, really.. it is the only OS that has actual thai system support on it... [11:18] moo: nope, you are wrong about linux letting you mess up. enable rm -i, mv -i, cp -i in your .bashrc [11:18] ty bur[n] er [11:18] well for the case where i don't want to apt-get update but I just want one program? [11:18] paul__, really? I've never seen that. Then do init 1 [11:18] robotgeek: lol, those three commands are not the only ways to make a mistake [11:18] moo: ubuntu protects you from your own stupity ex. typos or not thinking and typing something [11:18] paul__, there is nothing magic about the init levels, but it would be very strange for ubuntu to not do the same thing as all the others [11:18] moo: Linux==== SCARY [11:18] gnomefreak: I have dowloaded a DOS image : how do I proceed ? [11:18] moo: most of it, tho [11:18] <_jason> Grock, i'm not sure I understand what you mean [11:19] i've seen it for debian [11:19] moo: conversely... windows doesn't let you do anything and restricts you while linux leaves you in control [11:19] heh well ive botched several linux installs over the years and cp and rm never had anything to do with it [11:19] moo: you could always make an alias for rm to mv files to your /.Trash [11:19] dmoyne, i hate DOS hence the reason i use linux [11:19] Grock: if you want one program, you "apt-get install " (or "aptitude install ", which i would say is better) -- i don't understand you either [11:19] online access for the tarballs that I could manually compile the same sources that apt-get would grab. === Lightcycler [n=Legirons@] has joined #ubuntu === gdub [n=] has joined #ubuntu === diubidone [n=] has joined #ubuntu [11:20] Grock: you can get any source and compile it all day if you want... ubuntu doesn't stop you from doing that === hardeep_ is now known as rawr [11:20] for a live session [11:20] ok I was trying to install something and it says...I need a GLIB.. so I did a google for GLIB but I do not understand wjhat it -is-, can eannyone explain it to me? === rawr is now known as rawrr === wolfram [n=] has joined #ubuntu [11:20] please help i need to mount a pen drive it's urgent [11:20] Grock: if you actually want to compile the stuff, just "apt-get source " and you'll have the sources in your current directory [11:20] apt-get source will give you sources i think [11:20] gnomefreak : I need DOS to run a DOS application === Lightcycler [n=Legirons@] has left #ubuntu ["seeya!"] [11:20] my pen wont' mount [11:20] Grock, you get more programs (things) sometimes when you compile the source code [11:20] diubidone: using gnome? === lanjelot [n=lanjelot@] has joined #ubuntu [11:21] nobody knows ?
