[12:02] <awtcmc> is a /boot partition required if i plan on using gnoppix
for system rescue?
[12:02] <chaosmind> sys2: heh, ubuntu and MacOS X folks alike have had to
deal with "No Root User" panic syndrome!
[12:02] <Phr0stByte> Nevermind ppl - fixed it
[12:02] <chaosmind> =)
[12:02] <elTigre> hmpf
[12:02] <chaosmind> sudo is not such an evil system...
[12:02] <sys2> chaosmind, but its not that hard to add a box in the end
of the installation noticing a thing like that ... thats quite huge on a
unix system :/
=== Kaloz [kaloz@arrakis.dune.hu] has joined #ubuntu
[12:03] <elTigre> or can I force my linux system to mount the smart card
[12:03] <sys2> im sure its not but the fact that i do not know what my
root password is, or that i have to use sudo freaked me out like hell

[12:03] <chaosmind> yeah, i wish the installer had a smarter "HOWTO"
[12:03] <ompaul> aeonphive, what I did eariler today (not on that box
now) when presented with two chips was went into the alsa mixer and muted
both master volume settings one of them made noise so I was able to point
at that
[12:03] <tito> hi
[12:04] <chaosmind> but then i also wish ubuntu had a default-install up-
to-date webmin systyem! ;-)
[12:04] <tito> it's possible to run dreamwvr in ubuntu?
[12:04] <chaosmind> not dreamweaver, but good luck getting NVU installed!
[12:04] <chaosmind> (great workalike, bastard to install in ubuntu!)
[12:05] <chaosmind> you'll need wine or codeweavers to run dreamweaver in
[12:05] <chaosmind> =(
[12:05] <shadeofgrey> Xappe: Thanks! That worked!
[12:05] <ompaul> chaosmind, you could write such a webmin system :-)
[12:06] <shadeofgrey> i fixed it! hallelujah

[12:09] <chaosmind> i have a similar problem, i know the solution has to
do with editing the /etc/fstab file...

up randomly when mounting or unmounting devices?
[12:34] <chutwig> i keep getting the feeling that hotplug or the hal

couldn't ssh in
[12:36] <chutwig> could ping the computer, but that's not really much

[12:37] <biomic> hey all .. just about to begin the download of the
ubuntu iso, jsut wanting to ask a few questions .. firstly, im running an
ibook g4 here (1ghz) will that be sufficient to run? .. also i was hoping
to be able to dual boot alongside macosx until i completely understand my
way around linux, now ive read this is possible but apparently the
partitioning is difficult from what ive been reading .. is this so? .. if
it is, are there any open sou
[12:37] <biomic> rce ;) programs i can grab to make that any easier ? ...
ive used fedora and redhat before on my x86 box which is now trashed and
jsut really wanting to get back into linux :D .. thanks all
[12:37] <cavediver> Sorry, I want compiled stuff. I'm to lazy :)
[12:37] <elTigre> tito: sorry I can't dcc
[12:37] <chutwig> biomic: why would you want to install linux on an
ibook, though?
[12:37] <chutwig> your airport extreme won't work for sure
[12:37] <Ixan> chutwig: that was helpful...
[12:38] <Ixan> biomic: have you allready partitioned space for your linux
[12:38] <chutwig> Ixan: the whole point of buying a mac is to run OS X,
there's a world of cheap PC hardware out there to run linux on
[12:38] <Ixan> chutwig: ibooks are cute, os x is not
[12:38] <tito> ok eltigre gnome is running
[12:38] <biomic> well im getting sick of macosx to be honest but need the
gui while im doing assignments at the moment .. i nbought the book
because it was fairly cheap $1500 aussie

[12:49] <bebek> anyone can help me?
[12:49] <apokryphos7> spades: Yup. Doesn't have my router (has a similar
one), but I couldn't find out exactly how to do it. The instructions for
the router didn't seem to go through all the steps.
[12:49] <WillCooke> apokryphos7, Basically you set up your
firewall/router to forward ports that connect to it to ports on a mahcine
inside your network. For example.......
=== El_XiNo [~Zaks@] has joined #ubuntu

[12:50] <WillCooke> So, if someone points their browser at your ip
address, then the browser connects to port 80
=== Lethorion [~Christer@h79n2fls302o291.telia.com] has left #ubuntu
[12:50] <apokryphos7> WillCooke: Right. So where do I forward ports like
that for, say, torrents? The aforementioned site told me to go to this
screen file:/home/francis/portforwarding.jpg on my router.
[12:51] <spades> WillCooke: if yoi have something listening on port 80
yes, if not, they get a non address
[12:51] <bebek> hmmm
[12:51] <WillCooke> then if you wanted to serve web pages from a computer
on your network you would set you router to port forward 80 to port 80 on
the machine inside your network running apache

up when i installed

where do I find the info for those details?
[12:52] <WillCooke> apokryphos7, your BT client should tell you what
ports it's listening on for TCP and UDP perhaps. What client are you

alsaconf still says that the command is not found.. what could be
happening here????
[01:05] <WillCooke> apokryphos7, Are you using DHCP to get an IP address?
That is, you haven't explicitly set an IP address on your machine. If
this is the case, we should probably switch you over to a static IP
address (very easy!)
[01:05] <thr1ce> ok...I know that ubuntu is pretty much Gnome; do any
other WM/DE 's come by default?

[01:10] <WillCooke> apokryphos7, Every time you boot your machine it
broadcasts on your local network to see if there is a DHCP (Dynamic Host
Configuration Protocol) sever that can supply it with an IP addres, a
gateway (to the 'net) and lots of other good stuff.
[01:10] <bebek> yeah..... opl3sa2, ad1848, mpu401, sound

[01:10] <WillCooke> apokryphos7,    Your router is running this server
and it sends a message back containg all the IP info. Linux uses this
info, configures the network, and your off.
[01:11] <satu_rno> hi!!!!
[01:11] <WillCooke> apokryphos7, Now.... if one day there was another
machine on your network which asked for an IP address, your server would
probably take the first one on it's list and give it to the first
computer that asks for it.
[01:12] <apokryphos7> sure
[01:12] <LinuxJones> bebek, those are oss modules, if they are loaded
alsa will not work. You should be able to use those using oss, do
gstreamer-properties and select oss then test.
[01:12] <bebek> LinuxJones: but then when i run "alsamixer" it still
says: alsamixer: function snd_ctl_open failed for default: No such device

[01:13] <satu_rno> for linux ubuntu!
[01:13] <bebek> linuxjones: there are only "default sink" and "default
source", no "output" i guess you are talking about "default sink" ?
default sink scurrently points to "ESD - Enlight bal balbal" , and
default source points to "OSS"

[01:39] <puterfixer> LinuxJones, I have already checked ubuntuguide --
that's how I managed to mount all partitions.
[01:40] <kent> the page www.ubuntuguide.org has some tips that tells user
to add entrys to the menu using ://applications, etc, which will not
work for Hoary. A noble thing would be to change those tips to better
once as soon as possible. Its not wise to learn new users to do stuff in
a way we know wont work for the next release.

encrypt the contents of the directory with the blowfish cipher at 2048

[03:31] <pestilence> bigern75: perhaps that is a problem with your
installation of grub
[03:31] <pestilence> does it still boot o.k.?
[03:32] <bigern75> yea   i gotta edit it and take out the root (hd1,0)
line and it boots fine
[03:32] <pestilence> bigern75: you have to edit what?
[03:33] <bigern75> well, i hit enter, then 'd' to delete the line then
hit 'b' to boot

[03:34] <bigern75> it goes to gnu grub v.95
[03:35] <pestilence> bigern75: definitely sounds like a problem with grub
[03:35] <bigern75> then i delete the line root (hd1,0)   and it boots

[06:18] <membreya> anyone here know how to configure temp sensors on a
motherboard with ubuntu?
[06:19] <danielbell> i can monitor mine via proc, with acpi
[06:20] <danielbell> but you can install lm_sensors
[06:20] <danielbell> dunno the apt package for it
[06:21] <membreya> ...may sound stupid but ive only been in linux for 2
weeks...what exactly do you do in proc?

[06:22] <danielbell> temperature:              44 C
[06:22] <danielbell> but yours could be different
[06:22] <danielbell> this is a laptop with ACPI
[06:22] <membreya> just found it lol :)
[06:22] <membreya> thanks
[06:23] <membreya> there's no way to get rpm's of fans? :(
[06:23] <danielbell> have a look in /proc/acpi
[06:23] <danielbell> there's some fan entries there but mine doesnt
support it
[06:23] <membreya> my fan only has state :(
[06:24] <danielbell> but im thinking lm_sensors would be what you're
[06:24] <danielbell> it actually uses the sensor chips on your
motherboard to give you info, so if you have a fan sensor you can do it
[06:24] <danielbell> and there's plenty of eyecandy tools for displaying
the results
[06:24] <membreya> it's just for torsmo...so doesnt need to be too fancy

[06:26] <danielbell> so do you configure that to run commands?
[06:27] <membreya> just run it on your desktop ...it has a configure file
where you setup everything :)
[06:27] <danielbell> cool. maybe lm_sensors would be your bet
[06:27] <danielbell> id ont know the website, but google will tell ya
[06:28] <danielbell> i've never had it installed before though, never had

[06:33] <danielbell> thats the one i have

doesn't conform to web standards.
[06:33] <OrangeSlice> I'll stick with Bluefish :p
[06:33] <danielbell> you can set dreamweaver to conform to standards

[06:38] <danielbell> ah ok, i only really use wysiwyg for doing tables,

[07:13] <ions> that'll get all of them
[07:13] <crimsun> photoguy41: 'libx11-dev', but you'll probably need more
[07:14] <photoguy41> like?
[07:14] <OrangeSlice> you can use apt-cache to search repositories
[07:14] <OrangeSlice> "apt-cache search <query>"
[07:14] <crimsun> photoguy41: for what do you need them?
[07:14] <g> ok thank you very much
[07:14] <ions> any of you guys have the apple movie trailers working?
[07:14] <photoguy41> well i installed fluxbox by using apt-get install,

[07:15] <crimsun> photoguy41: eh? fluxbox installs just fine from the apt
[07:16] <photoguy41> so i dont need to get the others then?
[07:17] <crimsun> photoguy41: no, unless you plan to compile fluxbox,
which is not necessary unless you _must_ have the absolute latest
[07:18] <photoguy41> no. i just want to use it
[07:18] <photoguy41> but maybe its because it works best in KDE?
[07:18] <crimsun> photoguy41: fluxbox is simply a window manager; it has
nothing to do with KDE or GNOME.
[07:19] <photoguy41> oh, well let me post the error

as gnome's window manager?
[07:28] <photoguy41> i think i want fluxbox

[07:31] <danielbell> you can use fluxbox as a window manager and still
have gnome running?
[07:31] <speel> no
[07:31] <danielbell> damn coz i like that shading feature
[07:32] <Aegir> What? Window roll up? Coz thats in Gnome aswell
[07:32] <speel> open a console and make sure your in your home dir then
type gedit .xinitrc then add exec /usr/bin/fluxbox close it save it then
hit ctrl alt f1 then login again then type killall gdm then type startx
[07:32] <kreiger> Mm
[07:33] <kreiger> anybody know what folder i have to add gnome window
borders to?
[07:33] <crimsun> danielbell: sure you can.
[07:33] <crimsun> danielbell: just change the default wm key in gconf
[07:33] <speel> then to get rid of flux you hit alt ctrl f1 or alt ctrl
backspace i forgot then you rype rm .xinitrc then startx :)
[07:34] <danielbell> nevermind i found the rollup feature in gnome

[07:44] <crimsun> kreiger: gnome-session starts a program that conflicts

'debconf: unable to initialize frontend: Gnome' though it does install
things ok - anyone know what it's about?
[10:14] <Bigglez> On Mplayer - it's all blank - you can forward the image
but it won't play
[10:14] <Bigglez> On Ogle - it's even worse than xine - totally garbled
[10:14] <snowblink> Bigglez: have you enabled dma?

[10:15] <Bigglez> DMA on my player? I think it's on. Same player and

[05:44] <hawke> dc17: It's additional stuff, you can just leave it on.
[05:44] <tux_> um.. whats the default pass for cups ipp on
[05:44] <tritium> dc17, you don't have to dist-upgrade to use universe

[05:44] <dc17> if universe is enabled, dist-upgrade won't add a ton of

[05:45] <hawke> dc17: correct
[05:45] <tux_> pussfeller, tried that
[05:45] <MSG43> does anyone know when the ubuntu site will be back up

it doesnt use root

[05:45] <membreya> does ANYONE know why I can't enable DMA on my DVD
[05:45] <viper12> I'm in the same boat as tux on that one. nothing
[05:45] <HiddenWolf> MSG43: NO ETA on that, yet
[05:45] <hawke> dc17: dist-upgrade and upgrade both ony install new
versions, they don't install extra stuff unless the new version depends
on it
[05:45] <dc17> good. I had a debian install that added kde once after
messing with the sources.list and doing a dist upgrade :(
[05:45] <pussfeller> tux_: I think you need to use one of the guis for
printer configuration
[05:45] <vi11e> anyone tried ABC on ubuntu

[05:46] <Kal_Zakath> it's really important
[05:46] <Sionide> hm im having trouble getting any kinda network

[05:46] <tux_> pussfeller, thats what i am usin
[05:46] <viper12> puss......that's all good until you want to administer
a net printer and such.
[05:46] <vjaz> vi11e, what's ABC?
[05:46] <SiRrUs> Kal_Zakath yep so do I but guess your out of luck for
[05:46] <tux_> it lets me on, but when i try to add printer etc,,.
[05:46] <hawke> dc17: You might be better off doing an upgrade rather
than dist-upgrade
[05:46] <dc17> thanks for the info
[05:46] <tux_> its asks for login/pass
[05:46] <vi11e> bittorrent client
[05:46] <Kal_Zakath> SiRrUs: there isn't any mirror around ????
[05:46] <hawke> dc17: dist-upgrade will pull in new stuff if the new
version requires it, upgrade will not.
[05:46] <dash> oh, ubuntu.com /is/ down. okay good to see it isn't my
imagination :)
[05:46] <vi11e> it was the best one in windows, they have a linux version
[05:46] <SiRrUs> Kal_Zakath no
[05:46] <HiddenWolf> Kal_Zakath: there are mirrors around, just search

the case
[05:47] <dash> Kal_Zakath: heh. did you try googling for "ubuntu mirror"?
[05:47] <SiRrUs> Kal_Zakath like i said take a pill and relax

the are

you could manually compile in a pinch
[05:47] <thoreauputic> Kal_Zakath: stop being obnoxious, please
[05:47] <tux_> LinuxJones, what does that mean,
[05:47] <hawke> might be a good idea for someone to put the mirror in the

torrents in the gui other than java-based azureus?

to set a different port range on their BT client and create a new rule on
your router
[06:31] <WillCooke> apokryphos77, You'd need to configure the BT client
on the other machine to use a different port, and then forward that port
to the IP address of the other machine. Another user on your computer

can apt-get install on top of the original installation or do I have to

[11:56] <|QuaD|> beatreader: talk to an ubuntu developer about that
[11:56] <regeya> what is it this weekend with people wanting to talk
about problems, then when asked, be unnecessarily vague :-/
[11:56] <beatreader> Quad...how do I do that?
[11:57] <|QuaD|> say "ubuntu developers, anyone around"
[11:57] <spades> regeya: my sound doesnt work, fix it :(
=== atwerk [~atworkdoo@001-785-425.area1.spcsdns.net] has joined #ubuntu
[11:57] <regeya> I swear yesterday someone was trolling because when I
asked for the specific error message (y'know, just tryin' to help) they
said "that wouldn't help" and got huffy
=== tremor [~tremor@d54C39D40.access.telenet.be] has joined #ubuntu
[11:57] <regeya> and it's been that way every time I've been looking in
on #ubuntu...meh.
[11:57] <regeya> spades: fix mine first. ;-)
[11:57] <beatreader> ubuntu developers, anyone around?
[11:57] <|QuaD|> regeya: who needs the error message when trying to solve
a problem :)
[11:58] <bob2> beatreader: ask on the user list
[11:58] <beatreader> I'm going to try the ubuntu-devel room...thanks!
[11:58] <|QuaD|> regeya: yeah, i am kind of getting sick of helping
people, this should be at least the second stop, google should always be
the first stop, and people refuse to use google first
[11:58] <beatreader> bob2...I did already?
[11:58] <|QuaD|> beatreader: you did?
[11:58] <beatreader> yes.
[11:59] <beatreader> in the last hour or so
[11:59] <regeya> I've been ignoring my problems for a while, and I'm
relatively sure that the problem is wonky alsa sources in the kernel.
ran into the same thing on debian, and using a new kernel with official
alsa sources fixed it. I'm way too lazy and don't often need full
mixer/etc. support. I should just fix that.
[11:59] <|QuaD|> when? what email address?
[11:59] <bob2> er, hitting up that channel for help with unsupported
software is not a good idea
[11:59] <bob2> beatreader: you have to wait more than an hour
[11:59] <regeya> hehehe
[11:59] <victor_> thanks apokryphos
[11:59] <bob2> most ubuntu developers are asleep right now
[11:59] <|QuaD|> beatreader: someone will get back to you soon :)
[11:59] <beatreader> I guess I'll wait then...thanks
[11:59] <victor_> join #ubuntu-es
[11:59] <|QuaD|> anyone here tried running hula yet?
[11:59] <apokryphos> victor_: No problem. :)
