									[12:00] <Draga> I can't even start ubuntu live so i can't say anything
about it.
[12:00] <gotonpo> how often do you need to reboot?
[12:00] <desrt> ColonelKernel; if it's not taking the mode you want it
might be because your hsync/vsync params are wrong
[12:00] <ColonelKernel> desrt, im sorry but this just isnt true in my
case. I force 100hz on 1024x768 all the time, im other distros and even
in winXP
[12:00] <ColonelKernel> desrt, ok - what can I use to get the thing to
run @ 100hz
[12:01] <desrt> ColonelKernel; did you give your own hsync/vsync values?
[12:01] <desrt> 1024x768 must be like 1280x1024 including front and back
=== troglodyt [] has joined #ubuntu
[12:01] <dave> gnome has really bad focus problems
=== d-man__ [] has left
#ubuntu []
[12:01] <ColonelKernel> hsync 30-96 vert refresh 30-180
[12:01] <Gourami> question: can a daily cron job be set to mail you a
completion status ?
[12:01] <kutucape> dave, no it;s not
[12:01] <desrt> so like.... you'd need 128kHz horiz
[12:01] <Draga> No one can help me?
[12:02] <desrt> ya
[12:02] <ColonelKernel> well thats not going to work out at all
[12:02] <dave> is there somewhere i can configure these?
[12:02] <desrt> that 96 isn't high enough for 100Hz
[12:02] <Xyc0> LuNaTiK^GuY: Your clocking is based on M$ terms, not real
world terms. When you say speed. you mean boot up time and such, Linux
works faster by having less of a Memory trail. Linux was not designed to
Shut down, you never need too.
[12:02] <ColonelKernel> thats gonna scramble things in my normal desktop
[12:02] <kutucape> Draga, what's your problem
[12:02] <desrt> ColonelKernel; do you know how monitor timings work?
[12:02] <desrt> ColonelKernel; the card and the monitor need time to drag
the ray gun back to the left/top of the monitor to begin another draw
[12:02] <dave> Draga: i would suggest loading agpgart or something, but i
really have no idea
=== ivan_qk [~ivan@] has joined #ubuntu
=== oscar [] has joined
[12:02] <LuNaTiK^GuY> Xyc0, ok that's true...but i never keep my PC on
for days on end
[12:02] <desrt> and also they need rest time at the beginning and end of
each line
[12:02] <dave> is there some easy way to configure all of gnome?
[12:02] <ColonelKernel> desrt, I know if I increase hsync past 105 it
goes insane
[12:02] <Draga> dave: What's that?
[12:02] <desrt> it's called 'front porch' and 'back porch'
=== ivan_qk [~ivan@] has left #ubuntu ["Abandonando"]
=== yper [] has left #ubuntu []
[12:03] <desrt> ah.
[12:03] <desrt> not suprising :)
[12:03] <Draga> Could someone help me? I tried Ubuntu 5.1 live-cd and it
boots but when it start loading OS it just went black... Nothing happens
after that and 64bit live-image. I use Hp pavilion zv6028ea computer
(laptop) AMD 64bit 3200, Ati radeon xpress200m...
[12:03] <Xyc0> Draga: I really reccomend you install Linux, even on a
Dual Boot so you can keep M$ just in case
=== nacho_ [] has joined
[12:03] <Xyc0> Draga: I can help you more when we can actualy modify
[12:03] <ColonelKernel> well this works fine in other distros, and ive
gotten this to work in ubuntu before but I dont know how...
[12:03] <Draga> Xyc0: But if the live-cd doesnt work so how i can EVEN
instal it?
[12:03] <dave> Draga: ray gun!!
[12:03] <desrt> so basically, you want to force the increase in hsync for
1024 (games?) but go back down to normal for higher res...
[12:04] <Xyc0> Draga: Live-CD for Ubuntu is not the best in the world
=== gizban [gizban@a204-66.alabs.BrockU.CA] has left #ubuntu []
=== compubomb [house@compubomb.user] has left #ubuntu []
[12:04] <desrt> ColonelKernel; the gnome resolution thing has something
that you can manually specify the refresh rate...
[12:04] <Xyc0> Draga: If you want to try linux in general, try Kipponix
[12:04] <dave> gnome sucks when it comes to setting focus to stuff. is
this fixable?
[12:04] <Draga> It takes like 3hours to download it so it takes hell of a
time and if it doesnt even work?
=== _mike [] has joined #ubuntu
[12:04] <Draga> dave: Instal KDE
[12:04] <desrt> ColonelKernel; ie: you could write in the over-spec hsync
line and use the gnome resolution thing to force yourself back down to a
normal rate for desktop
[12:04] <ColonelKernel> desrt, I do not want to do it everytime though,
this SHOULD be working with a Modeline
[12:04] <dave> Draga: ok
[12:05] <ColonelKernel> desrt, will try, brb
[12:05] <LuNaTiK^GuY> ppl...if u visit and check the
linux articles i'm writing
[12:05] <desrt> ColonelKernel; the X server automatically discards
modelines that are out of range
[12:05] <LuNaTiK^GuY> i'll be basing them on Ubuntu
[12:05] <Gourami> ok if no one has an answer on cron job notification via
e-mail please refer me to somewhere I can look for help
[12:05] <_mike> someone mentioned earlier of a program to automatically
configure grub when you make a new kernel? what was the name of that?
[12:05] <LuNaTiK^GuY> i chose YOU to introduce it to M$ ppl :)
=== dort [] has joined #ubuntu
[12:05] <dave> whats the. .aptiwhat?
=== retteketet [] has joined
[12:06] <dave> aptivate or something.
[12:06] <wdh> Gourami, what was your exact question?
[12:06] <Draga> I guess i'm not going to use ubuntu :<
[12:06] <dave> Draga: not if the cd doesnt boot, no
[12:06] <wdh> Gourami, never mind, i read it
[12:06] <dave> Draga: you have the option of rerolling your own ubuntu CD
i suppose
[12:06] <Draga> dave: CD does boot but it doesnt load the ost
[12:06] <dave> with support for that card
[12:07] <dave> Draga: when does it stop, after the reboot?
[12:07] <Draga> OS
[12:07] <wdh> Gourami, i believe cron does that by default.. i think it
sends it to root@localhost unless you specify another emailaddress
=== robitaille [] has joined
=== Kevin [] has joined #ubuntu
[12:07] <Gourami> wdh: I have a cron job wich in a nutshell is a backup
which runs on a unmanned workstation that I do not want to chec every day
to see if the backup ran so I would like the cron to mail me a
result/status code
[12:07] <Draga> dave: No. It's a live CD. It shows "Ubuntu:" Then i press
enter and it starts loading some shit and them boom just black
[12:07] <Draga> And nothing happens
[12:08] <dave> see if you can disable the framebuffer
[12:08] <Xyc0> Draga: How long did you give it time to process?
[12:08] <wdh> Gourami, cron does that by default.. it mails any output of
the command..
[12:08] <Gourami> wdh: ok then my question would be how do I specify a e-
mail address
=== linuxpoet [] has joined #ubuntu
[12:08] <kutucape> Draga, try another live cd
[12:08] <Draga> Xyc0: Hmm.. About couple of minutes
[12:08] <kutucape> there's a bunch of live cd out there
[12:08] <linuxpoet> Hey anywhere I can get the newer versions of Gnome
for Ubuntu?
[12:08] <dave> is it possible to disable the framebuffer?
[12:08] <Draga> kutucape: Don't wanna waist CD:s
[12:08] <LuNaTiK^GuY> Ubuntu should be installed...not live-cd tried
[12:08] <wdh> Gourami, for that i would like to refer you to crontab's
manpage :)
[12:09] <Xyc0> Draga: I second kutucape, Ubuntu is a good distro, not a
live-linux distro
[12:09] <kutucape> linukso, use breezy badger
[12:09] <Xyc0> linuxpoet: Breezy Badger
[12:09] <kutucape> !breezy
[12:09] <Draga> Xyc0: I'm only trying to test if it works on my computer
that i shouldn't waist DVD:s
[12:09] <LuNaTiK^GuY> wot will Breezy Badger include?
[12:09] <Gourami> wdh: ok well at least thats something, failing that
i'll be back, thanks
[12:09] <LuNaTiK^GuY> more than Hoary?
[12:09] <dave> what is that program like apt-get but not?
[12:10] <Xyc0> yum?
[12:10] <Xyc0> or for Ubuntu?
[12:10] <dave> for ubuntu.
[12:10] <dave> some replacement thing
[12:10] <kutucape> LuNaTiK^GuY, i'm using breezy and it has no difference
at all
[12:10] <linuxpoet> Breezy Badger?
[12:10] <LuNaTiK^GuY> but its still in development
[12:10] <dave> not synaptic, the other one
[12:10] <linuxpoet> Is that a repository?
[12:11] <wdh> Gourami, it's called the 'MAILTO' option.. not sure on how
to specify it.. at least it should be done inside the crontab
[12:11] <traveller> aptitude?
[12:11] <zerboxx> I find totem (default video player) is out of sync
(audio/video), any help on fixing this, or should I just get xine, which
I know will work?
[12:11] <dave> thats the one

all of it free

[01:59] <oompa> how do I install a .deb file?
[01:59] <Razor-X> you Firefox users talk about how IE is so stupid, but
you sound just like IE users in your promotions
[01:59] <nikkia> apokryphos: headache passed hours ago...
[01:59] <Razor-X> nikkia: ahhhh, do you know it by heart?
[01:59] <nikkia> apokryphos: opera uses ugly widgets, has non-consistant
widget behaviour, etc
[01:59] <Razor-X> one thing is, Opera users almost never advertise
[01:59] <nikkia> Razor-X: not offhand, no
[01:59] <Razor-X> nikkia: if you call QT widgets ugly... mmmkay ;0
[01:59] <bimberi> oompa: sudo dpkg -i <file>
[01:59] <Razor-X> hmmm, #emacs then
[02:00] <nikkia> Razor-X: if they're QT widgets, then i'm embarassed for
trolltech :/
[02:00] <oompa> bimberi: Thanks again for helping this linux n00b
[02:00] <frank_> Razor-X: well they can't advertise here since Opera
isn't free
[02:00] <bob2> oompa: but in general, you don't do that directly, you let
synaptic do it for you

free things
[02:01] <gvrocha> does any1 knows how to get a touchpad to do the
scrolling in a toshiba laptop?
[02:01] <nikkia> Razor-X: so do i, but the widgets in the preferences for
opera do NOT behave consistantly with other Qt widgets
[02:01] <Razor-X> nikkia: well, they are common with a few other QT apps
[02:01] <Razor-X> plus, you can skin Opera
[02:01] <nikkia> Razor-X: again, the main UI is ok
[02:01] <Razor-X> I hate the Firefox default look, looks like bare metal,
to me

[02:01] <Kyral> Now how do I get packages that I backported from Breezy

[02:01] <nikkia> its the preferences, which are not really overly

[02:02] <bimberi> oompa: yes - you should install using synaptic where
[02:02] <Razor-X> Kyral: add in the backports to your sources.list? ;)

there is no host blocking ala adblock :/

position flash/JS pop-overs, renders it painful
[02:04] <Razor-X> Kyral: which is? ;)
[02:04] <Kyral> just replace the Hoary deb-src with the Breezy deb-src
[02:04] <Razor-X> nikkia: I disabled both, so, *shrugs*

several others were
[02:04] <nikkia> Razor-X: disabling JS isn't an option

[02:05] <nikkia> altho, in fairness, their page doesn't work with opera

to your bank site?
[02:05] <nikkia> snouptcss: urgh
[02:06] <snouptcss> you can have a toolbar button
[02:06] <apokryphos> nikkia: sorry about that... family issues
[02:06] <apokryphos> nikkia: what exactly is ugly about the widgets? I
quite like them :P
[02:06] <nikkia> snouptcss: seriously, having to remember to turn on/off
a feature because the browser authors can't introduce a nice feature to
block hosts from running scripts by clicking on them once, isn't right
[02:06] <Razor-X> apokryphos: it's a user choice, i'm guessing
[02:07] <apokryphos> de gustibus non est disputandum to a degree, I guess
[02:07] <Razor-X> Firefox skyrocketed because IE had a bad time, and all
of the geek friends of IE users reccomended it, Opera's been around for
ages, so the dust's kinda settled
[02:07] <Razor-X> apokryphos: what language?
[02:07] <nikkia> Razor-X: are you suggesting i'm a FF newbie that just
jumped on the bandwagon ?
[02:07] <Razor-X> nikkia: of course not
[02:07] <apokryphos> Razor-X: latin. "There's no arguing with tastess",
[02:08] <snouptcss> nikkia: 'by clicking on them once' ?
[02:08] <nikkia> i'll have you know i was using firefox since before it
was called firefox :P
[02:08] <Razor-X> i'm saying that's where the share came from
[02:08] <Razor-X> nikkia: and so was I
[02:08] <Razor-X> back when it was a browser called Phoenix
[02:08] <Vjaz> Isn't taste the only thing you *can* argue about?
[02:08] <Razor-X> IMO, Firefox lost sight of their goal after the hype
and the final name change
[02:08] <nikkia> snouptcss: i can block a whole domain's ****y .js/.swf
ads with one click, and forget about it forever, with firefox :)
[02:08] <apokryphos> I was a huge firefox fan back in the day. Even when
I saw Konqueror I disliked it quite a bit. Discovering Opera recently
made me wonder just why it wasn't so popular.

[02:09] <Razor-X> I was telling people "Change to Phoenix, change to

that?!" ;)
[02:09] <funkyHat> ff deserved it more than opera to be fair, opera has
shitty ads
[02:09] <Razor-X> hahahaha, and now there's Spread Firefox
[02:09] <snouptcss> heh and bloat, bloat, bloat
[02:09] <nikkia> Razor-X: then you had to tell them to switch to
'firebird' :)
[02:10] <nikkia> Razor-X: and soon, they'll be changing their name again
[02:10] <Razor-X> funkyHat: don't bring the "Free vs functionality" thing
[02:10] <Razor-X> nikkia: exactly
[02:10] <Razor-X> ;)

[02:10] <snouptcss> razor-x: no, free vs. ???, and functionality vs.
[02:11] <funkyHat> apokryphos, or have adblock disable it in the first

[02:37] <nikkia> apokryphos: i just need to find a jack backend for arts
[02:37] <mebaran151> how good is Kate at syntax highlighting
[02:37] <mebaran151> and, how are the Ruby bindings in KDE
[02:37] <apokryphos> mebaran151: pretty excellent
[02:38] <Crismo> Anyone know how to install wine ?
[02:38] <apokryphos> nikkia: did you find out what was hogging the sound
[02:38] <apokryphos> !wine
[02:38] <ubotu> apokryphos: I don't know, could you explain it?
[02:38] <apokryphos> hm
[02:38] <mebaran151> apokryphos, looking
[02:38] <mebaran151> yep
[02:38] <mebaran151> they are nice
[02:38] <nikkia> apokryphos: yes, arts had woken up *shrug*
[02:38] <apokryphos> Crismo: Open synaptic, install wine
[02:38] <nikkia> apokryphos: i might just turn off arts, i don't really
use it
[02:39] <mebaran151> I might be tempted to buy a Qt license
[02:39] <apokryphos> Don't really use aRts at all myself; xine solved
most of my issues with amaroK's sound for me, and KDE sounds are real
cool at first, but annoy me later.
[02:39] <apokryphos> nikkia: yeah, same.
[02:39] <crafol> breezy is stable?
[02:39] <Crismo> how i did with terminal
[02:39] <apokryphos> Crismo: what? From terminal: sudo apt-get install
[02:39] <apokryphos> crafol: no
[02:39] <nikkia> apokryphos: have you seen that OSS now has an alsa
emulation layer ? :)
[02:39] <Proteque_> how long does hoary plan to live?
[02:39] <Crismo> yes
[02:40] <Crismo> apokryphos
[02:40] <Proteque_> is it a good idea to use at a server?
[02:40] <Crismo> oops
[02:40] <crafol> thk :D
[02:40] <Proteque_> or should I use debian?
[02:40] <funkyHat> 6 months, as usual
[02:40] <apokryphos> nikkia: Nope. Wish I knew what that meant =)
[02:40] <mebaran151> but I believe I will be stuck in GTK for as long as
a I work with WIndows
[02:40] <Proteque_> funkyHat: and then it is deprecated?
[02:40] <nikkia> apokryphos: OSS == the old sound system on linux, a
shareware thing
[02:40] <Crismo> apokryphos: yes
[02:40] <apokryphos> Proteque_: officially supported for the 18 months. 6
months after its birth the next release comes in
[02:40] <mebaran151> I still prefer E17
[02:40] <apokryphos> nikkia: yup, knew that ;-)
[02:40] <mebaran151> unfortunately recompiling it from src is painful
[02:40] <funkyHat> um, that should be when breezy is released
[02:41] <apokryphos> Proteque_: excellent as a server

it. What program are you trying to run?
[02:45] <Tuplad> Is Ubuntu for PUsers ?
[02:45] <Crismo> apokryphos: t4c it's game
[02:45] <crazy2k> What happens if I try to install Firefox with its
installer rather than getting the Ubuntu package?
[02:46] <Burgundavia> crazy2k, you can do that, but it is not recommended
[02:46] <apokryphos> Crismo: chances are generally slim that it'll work;
smaller the program, the more likely though. But yeah, the above is the
basic of it. Plenty of stuff on Google, btw
[02:46] <Agrajag> of you do that, you should prbably install it in
/usr/local/ so it doesn't overwrite the installed version
[02:46] <bob2> Proteque_: I'm not sure how it will be handled, we're
still 8 months away from even warty's free support running out :)
[02:47] <crazy2k> Burgundavia, I wouldn't do it but, unfortunately,
there's no Spanish language pack in the repository.
[02:47] <jeran> I'm lost on what to do.. Synaptic Package Manager stopped
responding and now I can't close it.. and Firefox isn't working anymore..

[03:04] <Guest_545> Proteque, I wrote it down.
[03:04] <supernix> I installed Kubuntu but I am curious what would be the
best way to install Gnome as well ?
[03:04] <Guest_545> I'll tell you exactly what it does.
[03:04] <nebular> ok, I was checking out the mozilla-firefox package for
debian and it doesn't depend on any gnome packages. is there any reason
why I shouldn't use deselect and force it to ignore the gnome stuff in
[03:04] <supernix> would that be like a bad thing?
[03:04] <Guest_545> I run the boot disk and the Ubuntu install screen
comes up. It asks me to press enter for the default install or type
server for the base install.
[03:05] <_mike> alright thanks for the hell so far agrajag
[03:05] <_mike> help*
[03:05] <_mike> ha
[03:05] <Guest_545> So, I press enter, then it unpacks a bunch of files.
After that, it says it's going to run in low memory mode (I only have 32
MB of RAM) and that I need to set up a swap area after install.
[03:05] <HrdwrBoB> 32mb ram.. damn
[03:06] <HrdwrBoB> my router has that :/
[03:06] <Guest_545> Then, I select English, and an American English
keyboard. Then, it installs the CD rom... It scans the CD rom.. Then it's
loading additional component.
[03:06] <jeran> hondje: Well.. Actually it only starts when I do it that
way... I'm not sure what's wrong, should I edit the icon to just go to
that each time?

[03:35] <MrGardenHoseMan> can i just get either/or and it'll do the

tends to get slightly better compression than gzip.
[03:36] <MrGardenHoseMan> ahh
[03:36] <bob2> MrGardenHoseMan: you can download either, yes, but the
bzip2 will probably be a bit smaller

for more ubuntu repositories.
[03:53] <bob2> _mike: e.g.?
[03:53] <bob2> adding random repositories to your sources.list is just

[03:54] <pschulz01_> bob2: regarding 'vcards'.
[03:54] <_mike> yea, right now i have 15 repositories in sources.list
[03:54] <hondje> tritium: the inner physicist in me cringes to hear that

[04:01] <teferi> i know they're trying to move away from netinfo
[04:01] <robertj> teferi: ldap + krb by default with the last 2 versions

[04:01] <Guest_545> AFK
[04:01] <chillywilly> boy this is fun....
[04:01] <teferi> er, afs should be kerberized, considering that it's afs
[04:01] <DAC1138> okay, i got a friend whos going to get a mac soon and
he needs virtual pc to run windows, are there any free x86 emualtors for

[04:02] <teferi> afs is dreamy
[04:02] <Kyral> wine?

[04:02] <teferi> if only it wasn't such a SOB to set up on the server end
[04:02] <teferi> Kyral: nope, that's not an emulator
[04:02] <DAC1138> i told him to think about wine
[04:02] <bob2> Kyral: Wine Is Note an Emulator
[04:02] <robertj> tefari: unfortunately in this context its apple file
sharing and not afs ;)
[04:02] <teferi> oh
[04:02] <teferi> you mean afp
[04:02] <robertj> Although ther _is_ a prepackaged AFS kerberized binary!
=== airmikey [] has joined
[04:02] <Kyral> Yah, does the same thing :D
[04:02] <DAC1138> i told him to install linux, use Mac on linux to run

[04:02] <teferi> nope, it just loads windows binaries and runs the native
code, kyral
[04:02] <teferi> big difference
[04:02] <Kyral> oh...
[04:03] <robertj> BTW, VirtualPC is unusable without a gig of ram and a
G5 for most things
[04:03] <teferi> robertj: mmm. AFS.
[04:03] <Kyral> but it works great :D
[04:03] <DAC1138> its not an emulator, but it works for windows apps,
which is what he's looking for AFAIK
[04:03] <ricosuave17> what music player do u use
[04:03] <teferi> robertj: like i said, if only it wasn't such a SOB to
set up on the server end
[04:03] <teferi> DAC1138: not on ppc it won't
[04:03] <robertj> teferi: AFS as no love from apple, but cifs is good
enough for us
[04:03] <DAC1138> teferi, hm, guess he's out of luck then
[04:03] <DAC1138> hes going to have to fork over the money for virtual pc
[04:04] <teferi> AFS should get love from more people

with the rest of them
[04:06] <teferi> yeah
[04:06] <DAC1138> nvu is still only avalible in te beta format, while its
at 1.0 on the official site

[04:57] <Sponge_> and cedega is another option.
[04:57] <ricosuave17> anyone plz
=== hondje [] has joined
[04:57] <DAC1138> zerboxx, its the prebuilt winex packages you have to
pay for
[04:57] <ricosuave17> comeone
[04:57] <_mike> oh man that was scary i fixed it. login theme was
currupted and crashed wouldn't let me in. but i booted to a terminal
logged in as root then ran startx and changed back to defautl
[04:57] <Sponge_> zerboxx: Get VMWare Workstation and install windows on
it... then you can have war3 on win32 on linux...
[04:57] <DAC1138> Sponge_, cedega == winex
[04:57] <_mike> scared me for a second though i was screwed
=== Davey [] has joined #ubuntu
[04:57] <Sponge_> (quite cool!)
[04:57] <Sponge_> DAC118... Damned lag...
[04:58] <zerboxx> Sponge_: Does that means I have to install windows?!
[04:58] <Kyral> NO NO NO NO!
[04:58] <DAC1138> zerboxx, go to and get the cvs winex
for free
[04:58] <Sponge_> zerboxx: In a virtual machine...
[04:58] <ricosuave17> yes install windows
[04:58] <funkyHat> zerboxx, yes, it would mean that
=== nalioth [] has joined
[04:58] <Kyral> or pay 15 bucks for Cedega "Pro"
[04:58] <Sponge_> Kyral: Wait... I love playing with virtual machines...

[04:59] <desrt> cedega is evil
[04:59] <desrt> i wish it would go away already
=== Rubin_ [] has joined #ubuntu
[04:59] <tritium> hondje, I guess that means they've fixed backports so

=== aynjell hates cedega
[04:59] <DAC1138> desrt, so anything that improves upon something already

[04:59] <desrt> i <3 free software
[04:59] <funkyHat> night all
=== aynjell hates any software that threatens linux.
[04:59] <desrt> DAC1138; wine is now GPL for a reason.
[04:59] <aynjell> And uh, yes, cedega threatens linux.
[04:59] <Kyral> umm
=== Sponge_ doesn't know what "<3" means!!!
[04:59] <ricosuave17> check plz
[05:00] <DAC1138> have i been devoiced!!!??? CEDEGA IS FREE VIA CVS!!
[05:00] <Kyral> Cedega helps Linux...
[05:00] <aynjell> DAC1138, either way, it has already nixed one port.
[05:00] <DAC1138> has all the instructions to get and
configure winex through cvs
[05:00] <aynjell> That's all I need to hear.
=== Sponge_ loves virtual machines!

=== aynjell loves linux

[05:00] <DAC1138> Sponge_, i loved them at one time, then it took 27
hours to install xp on this machine. and i gave up
[05:00] <desrt> DAC1138; and yet they threaten distros, warning them not
to package their software
[05:00] <desrt> DAC1138; sounds quite open....
[05:01] <aynjell> desrt, exactly.
[05:01] <Sponge_> DAC1138: Ur kiddin'? no way!
[05:01] <DAC1138> desrt, it does. more so than M$
[05:01] <aynjell> DAC1138, that means nothing.
[05:01] <desrt> "better than microsoft" isn't a great argument :)
[05:01] <DAC1138> Sponge_, yeah, i gave up installing it. that progress
bar was crawling
[05:01] <aynjell> SCO supports us more than microsoft.
[05:01] <aynjell> BUt sco is a badguy nonetheless.
[05:01] <Sponge_> anyway I just installed a tweaked version of m$win98...
just for gaming.
[05:01] <DAC1138> Sponge_, when it said "15 minutes remaining ir really
meant "15 hours remaining"
[05:01] <jeran> should I leave the respositories that came 'on' with
Ubuntu like it is, or is it safe to get other things?
[05:01] <ricosuave17> whats the name of the graphical apt-get tool
[05:01] <desrt> jeran; some other things are safe
[05:02] <tritium> ricosuave17, synaptic
[05:02] <desrt> jeran; some are more likely to destablise your box
[05:02] <Sponge_> DAC1138: hahaha... I haven't tryed the winxp
installation yet. Just win98.
[05:02] <rommer> can serving web pages be parallelized?
[05:02] <desrt> jeran; certainly, adding universe and multiverse is fine
(and recommended)
[05:02] <desrt> rommer; already is
[05:02] <Rubin_> jeran: i have almost everything on
installed and no probelms yet :)
[05:02] <jeran> I'm fresh from Windows XP, but i have some linux
knowledge.. atleast I like to pretend I do, heh
[05:02] <DAC1138> Sponge_, xp installed fine, in about 30 minutes on
another laptop thats about half as fast as this one
[05:02] <desrt> rommer; if you fire up apache it starts 6 or so
processes... if the webserver gets a lot of hits it starts even more
=== fr500 [] has joined #ubuntu
[05:02] <DAC1138> Sponge_, this is a 2.2 ghz with 768 mb ram, that thing
is a 1.1 ghz with 512, i have no idea what happened to make it so slow
[05:03] <daniels> the cedega discussion is off-topic here
[05:03] <fr500> hello
[05:03] <desrt> daniels; i was waiting for someone to call that :)
[05:03] <rommer> desrt: so if you had more than one computer acting as
the web serving it will be able to process faster?
[05:03] <Sponge_> DAC1138: Whoa... My desk is a 1.8 ghz / 768 mb ram...
and It really works!
[05:03] <desrt> rommer; oh. that's load distributions
[05:03] <desrt> rommer; there's several ways to do that... the easiest to
round-robin DNS
[05:03] <aynjell> 2.5Ghz here.
=== Sponge_ is shocked...
[05:04] <aynjell> Well, 2.4.2 right now.
[05:04] <aynjell> I gotta raise voltage and fsb to get it to 2.52 stable.
[05:04] <aynjell> :)
=== Sponge_ has a very old PC, but it a rock!
[05:04] <fr500> i have a question, i found somewhere 10 ide 200gb disks,
i know i can use evms to make a raid array or something with them, but
(sorry for being off topic) is there a way to add more than 4 ide devices
on a signle pc?
[05:04] <rommer> desrt: does that mean every computer has a mirror of the
files on the server?
[05:04] <fr500> **single
[05:04] <DAC1138> daniels, just curious, why is cedega (software) off
topic, but gentoo (a completely separate distro) isnt?
[05:04] <desrt> rommer; basically
[05:04] <tritium> .
[05:04] <aynjell> fr500, get another ide card.
[05:04] <desrt> rommer; you setup a couple of machines with exactly the
same document root
[05:04] <Sponge_> fr500: Get a PCI-IDE controller and problem solved!
[05:04] <aynjell> You'll need another controller is all.
=== Davey [] has joined #ubuntu
[05:04] <desrt> rommer; then you setup DNS with multiple A records
[05:04] <desrt> rommer; like:
[05:04] <daniels> DAC1138: off-topic things are fine, as long as they
don't spawn huge discussions that fill up two screens or more
[05:04] <desrt> www     A
[05:04] <desrt> www     A
[05:04] <daniels> DAC1138: i.e., in passing
[05:05] <aynjell> PCI cards should only support another 4, though, right?
[05:05] <fr500> Sponge_, the limit is the number of pci slots available
[05:05] <DAC1138> daniels, ah, i see the difference now
[05:05] <daniels> DAC1138: (if there was a Gentoo discussion, I missed it
while I was getting lunch)
[05:05] <desrt> and then randomly, when people go to
they'll go to one machine or the other
[05:05] <Sponge_> fr500: Right.
[05:05] <rommer> yep
[05:05] <fr500> aynjell, thanks, Sponge_ thanks
[05:05] <desrt> rommer; there are a lot more advanced methods too that
might work out better for you
[05:05] <aynjell> Sure.
[05:05] <Sponge_> U'r welcomed.
[05:05] <DAC1138> daniels, i thought this was just some nazi regime, lol.
i see the point though
[05:05] <rommer> how would that work with reading and writing to mysql
[05:05] <elmagozizou> Does Anyone knows About documentation about the
uses of a livecd? I mean for personal use, recovery etc...
[05:05] <tritium> DAC1138, that gentoo discussion went on for long enough
that I asked that there not be a distro war
[05:05] <desrt> rommer; as long as you use a single database and the
webservers themselves are stateless, you're fine
[05:05] <deang> thanks MrGardenHoseMan and funkyHat!!
[05:06] <Sponge_> fr500: Anyway, get a SCSI RAID card.... it's 10 times
[05:06] <desrt> rommer; things like phpbb, for example, are fine
[05:06] <fr500> Sponge_, but the disks are ide
[05:06] <rommer> desrt: so all the htdocs and mysql database are on one
machine, but the others link to it?
[05:06] <Sponge_> talking about hdd's... is possible to install "humanity
to others" (or whatever it means) to a SCSI drive?
[05:07] <desrt> rommer; you can make multiple copies of static content
and scripts
[05:07] <desrt> rommer; but you need a single database
=== deang [] has joined #ubuntu
[05:07] <rommer> ok
[05:07] <desrt> rommer; or multiple database servers with replication
[05:07] <DAC1138> Sponge_, i think so, dont macs use scsi?
[05:07] <fr500> Sponge_, an unrequested shipment came to my office, it
was more expensive to return them, so we bought them ($50 each)

[06:10] <socomm> dups: There's a known bug for that combination, I posted
a solution on ubuntus bugtrack thingamajig.
[06:10] <Computer__Guru> dups i had that problem when i loaded a bunch of
flash devel libraries n such... never could fix it, ended up reinstalling
[06:10] <coolkev> also when i uses other application while listening to
music beep-media-player stops playing and if i try to press the play
button it hangs
[06:10] <Spleen> Because I don't remember what I used to set up PPPoE
and, while it seems to work, my ethernet NIC (eth1) that connects to the
modem doesn't show as configured in Network settings (Gnome)
[06:10] <dups> yeah it's really frustrating
[06:10] <Computer__Guru> dups: yeah, it's got flash on it. try removing

installer does and I don't know what the "Install OS" option does... just
look that there is free space (not used by any partitions) on your disk,

somewhat limited on space and just want to install what you're gonna

the same problem, even reinstalled kubuntu... changed to ubuntu, (gnome-
printer-manager) and problem solved

my Plantronics USB work...and now my on board isn't working...and in
order for my USB dev to work, it has to be plugged in before I boot

[06:48] <mebaran151> anildigital,
[06:48] <mebaran151> you dont technically have root

[06:48] <Computer__Guru> nah,t hat's wrong.. how can a setuid app be more
secure than root?
[06:49] <ricosuave17> ok thanks dudes i now have mutiples sounds
[06:49] <mebaran151> I can grant certain users different root like
[06:49] <Computer__Guru> ridiculous
[06:49] <nomis_> mebaran151, maybe he needs it. for example .. you can
boot from grub with full root prevs. i dont thinks thats secure
[06:49] <knowledge_> Computer__Guru, What do you think I shouuld do about
my little sound problem
[06:49] <knowledge_> ?
[06:49] <mebaran151> Computer__Guru, then su is equally ridiculous
[06:49] <tomchuk> Computer__Guru, root or sudo aren't insecure, but only
executing commands as root through sudo is /safer/
[06:49] <Computer__Guru> there is absolutely NOTHING wrong with having a
root account, there's also nothing any more 'insecure' than using sudo.
[06:50] <crimsun> knowledge_, I gave you a suggestion
[06:50] <Computer__Guru> tomchuk: ill concede that
[06:50] <knowledge_> oh....woah
[06:50] <Computer__Guru> but I have a root account, and wouldn't have it
any other way

[06:50] <mebaran151> Computer__Guru, I've sen it both ways

[06:50] <mebaran151> sudo is more convieninet
[06:50] <nomis_> i just meant that you should give a passwd to root.
otherwise its not very secure
[06:50] <crimsun> knowledge_, yep
[06:50] <tomchuk> Computer__Guru, I have a root account too, but I use
sudo more often
[06:51] <mebaran151> nomis_, if you give a password root, you have a root
account right?
[06:51] <nomis_> yes. i thinks thats the best way Tomcat_

[06:51] <nomis_> mebaran151, yes
[06:51] <Computer__Guru> the only true advantage to not having root would
be if it were possible to make /etc/sudoers unreadable by the rest of the
system. then you could create a couple of dummy accounts, and the hacker
wouldnt be sure which acct he had to hack
[06:51] <nomis_> mebaran151, without passwd the root accout is disabled

[06:51] <mebaran151> I thought as much

[06:52] <dbernar11> :)
[06:52] <Computer__Guru> i dont believe
[06:52] <mebaran151> Computer__Guru, can't you give different users
different levels of rootness?
[06:52] <crimsun> dbernar1, that's the default X-Chat nick-completion
delimiter :)
[06:52] <mebaran151> and control what accounts can sudo
[06:52] <Computer__Guru> mebaran151: not different levels, but youc an
define groups of apps, and set each user to a group or maybe just a
selection of apps he can use
[06:52] <mebaran151> yeah
[06:52] <mebaran151> so isnt that more secure
[06:53] <Computer__Guru> well, not really

[06:58] <RQ> bob2, root account might be disabled on ssh ;)
[06:58] <bob2> Computer__Guru: ssh on ubuntu allows root to login by

[06:58] <bob2> RQ: sure, there's lots of things you can change
[06:58] <mebaran151> bob2, then why did Ubuntu choose to disable the root
account and use sudo?
[06:58] <Computer__Guru> bob2: yeah i saw that (and turned it off

use to back up the decision :)
[06:59] <Computer__Guru> which is a ridiculous reason to do such a thing

[07:00] <Worm> Hi i need help
[07:00] <bob2> mebaran151: it means people only need to remember one
password, and makes it slightly harder for people to brute-force root on
your machine
[07:00] <RQ> welll
[07:00] <bob2> mebaran151: and it encourages people to not ever login as
root, which is a good thing by itself
[07:00] <tna> i booted up ubuntu and it took me to a command line wasnt
sure what to run so i ran the only executable and it took me to a german
[07:00] <mebaran151> that is a good thing
[07:00] <Computer__Guru> bob2: my user acct and root acct always have
the same password *shrug*
[07:00] <RQ> if they brute-force you, they have root automatically
[07:00] <RQ> ;]
[07:00] <mebaran151> I cant info su thouhg; it brings up the man page ...
[07:00] <mebaran151> that is odd
[07:00] <Tomcat_> Computer__Guru: Bad way :)
[07:00] <bob2> Computer__Guru: why do you even have a root account at all
[07:01] <Worm> I just installed a game (t4c) with wine but how can i use
it ?
[07:01] <dbernar11> nalioth: you there?
[07:01] <bob2> mebaran151: I don't know how you could manage to not have
it on ubuntu, it's in the coreutils package
[07:01] <RQ> Worm, you run its executable with wine
[07:01] <MrGardenHoseMan> are .wmv files only viewable in windows?
[07:01] <Tomcat_> MrGardenHoseMan: Nope. You need w32codecs to view them.
[07:01] <Worm> RQ: where can i find it ? it in windows/ ...
[07:01] <bob2> MrGardenHoseMan:
[07:02] <bob2> MrGardenHoseMan: it should be linked from the FAQ
[07:02] <dbernar11> bob2: I dont think it shows it any more.
[07:02] <RQ> Worm, eh?
[07:02] <Computer__Guru> bob2: cause you hardly ever need to be root. i
neither want or need superuser access on my user acct
[07:02] <MrGardenHoseMan> awesome thanks
[07:02] <Computer__Guru> THAT is a bad idea
[07:02] <Computer__Guru> heh
[07:02] <mebaran151> bob2, I have info ... it just loads the manpage
[07:02] <bob2> dbernar11: eh?
[07:02] <mebaran151> or something REALLY similar
[07:02] <dbernar11> bob2: the restrictedformats wiki does not have a wmv
entry any more.
[07:02] <bob2> Computer__Guru: "if you're going to set the same password
for both, why bother having root and a normal account?"
[07:02] <bob2> mebaran151: ok, that's weird

[07:03] <bob2> dbernar11: oh

dunno dude, it's my preference.. even the page says both have pretty much
equal advantages and disadvantages, so i suppose 'one less question' is a
pretty good reason to disable root, after all

[07:22] <bob2> Harold: very high
[07:22] <Burgundavia> mebaran151, you cannot write a gui app in a
scripting language. JS is a scripting language
[07:22] <regeya_> hackish, yes.
[07:22] <mebaran151> Harold, I think it a high
[07:22] <regeya_> where does that put perl?
[07:22] <Shicaca> Question: I have a laptop (Gateway Solo 1450 if you're
interested) that has ACPI fans. I found a "script" that can turn the fans
on and off. It gives me the code but what do I write the code in? Is
there a program? I'm so freaking green with Linux it's not even funny,
but before I can install it on my laptop for real (I was using Live) I
have to get the fans to turn off/on.
[07:22] <Harold> I understand C++ is middle-level...
[07:22] <mebaran151> Burgundavia, you cant use ruby or python to write
[07:22] <mebaran151> what about PyGTK
[07:22] <Burgundavia> mebaran151, and gnome-art is written in ruby
[07:22] <regeya_> Wow, Burgundavia is trolling for flames, I think
[07:22] <bcarroll> pythons got pyGTK you can put a gui together with it,
[07:22] <Computer__Guru> perl used to be a scripting language
(interpreted), but now has the ability to compile it's objects and
modules :D
[07:22] <bob2> Burgundavia: er, that's a very odd defintiion of a
scripting language
[07:22] <Harold> ...I'm not opposed to learning middle-level, so that
I'll know more about what's going on "behind the scenes".
[07:22] <Burgundavia> regeya, not really
[07:22] <regeya_> meh.
[07:23] <Computer__Guru> it still writes pretty much the same though
[07:23] <mebaran151> Burgundavia, actually why I tried it first

[07:23] <Druke> python or Ruby is high
[07:23] <Shicaca> *pokes a op*
[07:23] <sproingie> i think "scripting language" is more a matter of how
you use it
[07:23] <timl> Harold: learn c++ once you've learnt python and/or ruby
[07:23] <Computer__Guru> yeah
[07:23] <dbernar11> !ops

[07:23] <sproingie> i've seen solid programs written in korn shell
[07:23] <bob2> dbernar11: ?
[07:23] <Computer__Guru> bash can be a scripting language
[07:23] <dbernar11> just for Shicaca
[07:23] <Druke> bash is useful too
[07:23] <dbernar11> so he knows...:)
[07:23] <nalioth> dbernar11: please dont do that
[07:24] <dbernar11> why?
[07:24] <sproingie> shell has flow control constructs no scripting
language has
[07:24] <Shicaca> haha
[07:24] <mebaran151> Bash is very useful
[07:24] <bob2> please don't overuse that

[07:24] <Crismo111> Tomcat_ are you alway ther ?
[07:24] <bob2> Harold: python runs on macos, most unixes, windows...
[07:24] <mebaran151> Harold, but if you get into PyGTK
[07:24] <Harold> Whereas C++ apps run pretty much on anything?
[07:24] <mebaran151> then you might get a little hairy
[07:25] <Computer__Guru> i hear emacs has a great python interface
[07:25] <Computer__Guru> for ide
[07:25] <bcarroll> pyGTK can get hairy
[07:25] <Druke> Harold, if c++ works python will work
[07:25] <mebaran151> even GEdit has a decent highlighter
[07:25] <Shicaca> mebaran: it's not a file though ... they give me the
text lines and say, "here you go!"
[07:25] <Crismo111> can someone help me plz ?

[07:25] <Computer__Guru> isnt there even a pyIDE package you can get?

[07:25] <bob2> Harold: that's kinda orthogonal
[07:25] <Crismo111> bob2: yeah but also got problem
[07:25] <Druke> pythong IDE like IDLE, or use emacs
[07:25] <mebaran151> the only ide worth anything is vim and bash :p
[07:25] <Computer__Guru> bob2: wanna drop a couple names?
[07:25] <Druke> python*
[07:25] <Harold> bob2: Orthogonal? LOL, I like that...
[07:26] <bob2> Harold: to run a random C++ program on a system, you need
to install whatever libraries it needs, and compile it there
[07:26] <Computer__Guru> something X based would be great
[07:26] <bob2> C++'s ABI is pretty brittle
[07:26] <Crismo111> bob2: well i'm trying to open a exe of a game
[07:26] <bob2> on linux, anyway

[07:26] <sproingie> mebaran151: for web apps it has nice tools

[07:28] <Crismo222> bob2: how ?
[07:28] <mebaran151> is objective C easier than C++
[07:28] <bob2> Computer__Guru: there is...
[07:28] <mebaran151> which would be a better compiled language to start
[07:28] <sproingie> mebaran151: most people would say yes

[07:28] <bob2> Crismo222: ls ~/.wine/drive_c/"Program Files"
[07:29] <dbernar11> Crismo222: you need a \ before specal characters in a
terminal, like the space
[07:29] <sproingie> mebaran151: unless you want to go with gnustep, which
frankly ain't that good
[07:29] <bob2> hacked`: then use iwconfig to set the wep key. sudo

[08:35] <Computer__Guru> what ya do, is find the area of the file that's
bad in the checksums, find an ftp program and server that support resume,
login, resume the file where you need the patch, let it go for a few
blocks, stop it and save it to a different name
[08:35] <crimsun> eyequeue, it's best to file a bug upstream to deal with
it. Click the mantis link on You'll need to provide

[09:18] <eyequeue> ricosuave17: that is wht it is strongly recommended

but i dont recommmend that

[09:18] <Razor-X> it's less restrictive than the languages i've worked
[09:18] <Razor-X> it feels pretty nice though
[09:18] <mebaran151_> yep, that is what comes from being fully oop
[09:19] <amonkey> flcl? who's talking about fooly cooly
[09:19] <Razor-X> it has a flow of it's own, which is pretty rare
[09:19] <mebaran151_> not like python where they hacked it on
[09:19] <mebaran151_> yeah
=== RQ [~rq@] has joined #Ubuntu
[09:19] <mebaran151_> you tend to try to avoid self unless you are
[09:19] <Razor-X> well, Python has the same feel as C++ OO
[09:19] <mebaran151_> amonkey, I was
[09:19] <Razor-X> it's optional, at best
[09:19] <Cooner750> lol: #cooner750
[09:19] <mebaran151_> C++ is a big set of hacks
[09:19] <eyequeue> ricosuave17: libc6 is basically what (almost) "EVERY"
pachage depends upon ... meaning ... you have to be willing to break your
whole system for this thing
[09:19] <mebaran151_> it aint no smalltalk
[09:19] <Flying-Penguin> what is a ftp program for linux?
[09:19] <amonkey> it's something you do with your hands, like this
[09:19] <Razor-X> I haven't used smalltalk so *shrugs*
[09:19] <mebaran151_> Flying-Penguin, gftp
[09:19] <Razor-X> just heard it's awesome at scripting
[09:20] <Razor-X> but, i'm wondering what I can do with Ruby
[09:20] <mebaran151_> Ruby is a usable version of smalltalk
[09:20] <robotgeek> I am sticking to Python and C!
[09:20] <Razor-X> i'm actually borrowing a friend's ``Pragmatic
Programmer's'' book, 2nd edition
[09:20] <Flying-Penguin> mebaran151_: ok ty
[09:20] <Micksa> where is lifeless when you need him
[09:20] <ricosuave17> oh else the manual compile also give me an error
[09:20] <mebaran151_> Razor-X, yeah good stuff
[09:20] <mebaran151_> what have you gotten through?
[09:20] <mebaran151_> I just took it up about 3 weeks ago
[09:20] <amonkey> is there a fix for the 7 mouse button problem yet?
[09:20] <eyequeue> ricosuave17: just to illustrate, type this (and
definitely say no when asked!) "sudo dpkg --purge libc6"
[09:20] <mebaran151_> and can already do some neato stuff
[09:21] <Cooner750> lol I '/ping cooner750'
[09:21] <mebaran151_> amonkey, you only need a 7 button mouse for FLCL :)
[09:21] <Cooner750> interesting
[09:21] <Razor-X> mebaran151_: the tutorial in Chapter 2
[09:21] <mebaran151_> oh
[09:21] <Razor-X> nothing special yet
[09:21] <mebaran151_> you going straight by the book
[09:21] <Razor-X> yeah, I am
[09:21] <Razor-X> I generally prefer that
[09:21] <Razor-X> i'm amazed at how deftly and quickly they explain the
OO concepts
[09:21] <anacron> :D 7 mouse buttons, who need's seven buttons while mac
work's fine with one :D
[09:21] <ricosuave17> ok eyequeue can u help me manual compile?
[09:21] <mebaran151_> this is a lot better than the book actually
[09:21] <mebaran151_> written by a core ruby hacker
[09:22] <Razor-X> similar concepts in C#/C++ books take 40 pages
[09:22] <Cooner750> alllright. I think i'm going to bed now.
[09:22] <robotgeek> anacron: ratpoison, "Kill the rodent"
[09:22] <mebaran151_>
[09:22] <Razor-X> robotgeek: ahhh, ratpoison is pretty nice
[09:22] <anacron> haha
[09:22] <mebaran151_> he starts from the very basics and by the end of 6
[09:22] <Razor-X> mebaran151_: you finished it?
[09:22] <eyequeue> ricosuave17: sounds like it woukd have many
[09:22] <mebaran151_> you understand metaprogramming
[09:22] <Razor-X> errr
[09:22] <ricosuave17> just one
[09:22] <mebaran151_> no
[09:22] <Cooner750> allllright...... 'night
[09:22] <ricosuave17> want to see the error?
[09:22] <Razor-X> s/you finished it/Is i better than the book?/
[09:22] <mebaran151_> seriously this is a great tutorial
[09:22] <anacron> you guy's are crazy
[09:22] <mebaran151_> I own the book
[09:22] <mebaran151_> and I use it alot

start reading up on what I need to program an RPG in GTK
[09:25] <Razor-X> for portability
[09:25] <frank> Micksa: because you don't have X11R6!
[09:25] <mebaran151_> Razor-X, dont use GTK for that
[09:25] <mebaran151_> I GTK is meant for standard user interface
[09:25] <Razor-X> mebaran151_: what should I use then?
[09:25] <mebaran151_> ruby actually has a whole rpg game language
[09:25] <Razor-X> OpenGL is a huge huge thing
[09:25] <mebaran151_> I forgot the name
[09:26] <Razor-X> mebaran151_: RPG Maker?
[09:26] <mebaran151_> I think that might be it

powerful language

[09:27] <Razor-X> ahhh, no, I want a graphical RPG
[09:27] <mebaran151_> nah
[09:27] <mebaran151_> but this will form a good base
[09:27] <mebaran151_> in like 40 lines of code
[09:27] <Razor-X> I've programmed RPGs before ;)
[09:27] <Razor-X> that's where my program base started, originally
[09:27] <mebaran151_> he basically writes a class file that will create
all your base classes beofre

[09:27] <Razor-X> before C++, before Java, before C#, before Pascal,
before all that crap

how do i access the files on my cd's ? :D
[09:28] <jesus-franco> either opera or your monitor is setup wrong
[09:28] <Madpilot> jesus-franco: not sure, and not sure how to check. you
mean 16bit vs 32?
[09:28] <mebaran151_> it gives you huge flexibity, because the code
writes the traits for each class you create
[09:28] <robotgeek> epiloc: yay!
[09:28] <jesus-franco> linux uses 24
[09:28] <mebaran151_> so dont poo poo it quite so quickly

[09:32] <mebaran151_> because take a look at that classfile
[09:32] <Burgundavia> ricosuave17, which version do you want?
[09:32] <Razor-X> the slap just to have felt how it feels to slap the
gerat ``Mandrake''
[09:33] <Razor-X> it's like when I talked to Dark Dread
[09:33] <mindspin> short one, OT: whats the command to add a user without
a home directory and shell useradd -l ?
[09:33] <Razor-X> awesome awesome man
[09:33] <ricosuave17> the newest gtk 2 version avaliable
[09:33] <Burgundavia> ricosuave17, the newest stable gtk you already have
[09:33] <mebaran151_> ricosuave17, uh you dont want the latest
[09:33] <ricosuave17> hwo do u know that
[09:33] <mebaran151_> the latest is never the greatest
=== BockBilbo [~Bock@] has joined #ubuntu
[09:33] <ricosuave17> i want the latest stable
[09:33] <eliUbuntu> so when you do md5sun name.iso and it spits out some
numbers, then its ok?
[09:33] <mebaran151_> because you wont have a working GTK at the end of
the day
[09:33] <Burgundavia> ricosuave17, are you running hoary?
[09:33] <ricosuave17> yes
[09:33] <mebaran151_> eliUbuntu, no
[09:33] <mebaran151_> you compare that number
[09:33] <ricosuave17> but i didnt have the latest alsa drivers
[09:33] <Burgundavia> ricosuave17, then you have the latest stable
[09:33] <mebaran151_> to the number they have on the site
[09:33] <eliUbuntu> or should i open the md5 file and compare the
[09:33] <Razor-X> mebaran151_: what do you suggest I do graphics in?
[09:34] <Razor-X> to make them portable?
[09:34] <mebaran151_> portable is hard
[09:34] <^rob^> is there any industrial theme for kde ?
[09:34] <Razor-X> yeah, I know
[09:34] <Burgundavia> ricosuave17, after Hoary released, they froze it
and no new versions are going into it
[09:34] <mebaran151_> even GTK isnt THAT portable
[09:34] <mebaran151_> I mean you have to bundle the whole runtime, and
the bindings might go weird
[09:34] <Razor-X> but like, at LEAST 82% of the world uses Windows
[09:34] <ricosuave17> why??
[09:34] <eyequeue> eliUbuntu: those numbers are so you can check
*against a known published string* to see if it matches -- IF it does,
then it is okay
[09:34] <ricosuave17> then ill use another repostery
[09:34] <Razor-X> and for them, I have to do this
[09:34] <mebaran151_> well the WinAPI is crap for writing an RPG
[09:34] <Agrajag> ricosuave17: that's what a stable release is
[09:34] <nerd> Any one know the name of the Xorg header files package ??
[09:34] <mebaran151_> you would have to get a DirectX sdk
[09:34] <ricosuave17> why does ubuntu have to tell me what to do or not
to do
[09:34] <Razor-X> yeah, but i'm a _Linux_ user ;)
[09:34] <mebaran151_> which I think costs money
[09:35] <mebaran151_> Razor-X, SDL
[09:35] <Burgundavia> ricosuave17, it doesn't
[09:35] <mebaran151_> Burgundavia, doesn't?
[09:35] <mebaran151_> cool
[09:35] <Razor-X> mebaran151_: ahhh, there we are!
[09:35] <Burgundavia> ricosuave17, you have some of the latest stable
stuff in the world
[09:35] <Razor-X> SDL is also on Windows
[09:35] <ricosuave17> nop

[09:35] <ricosuave17> it was like 10 versions old

[09:36] <mebaran151_> yeah

[10:19] <Madpilot> good night/morning/day/whatever, everyone
[10:20] <djp> epiloc: i use evolution and mutt
[10:20] <IIIEars> epiloc - thunderbird is a bit easier to configure.
evolution can make nicer looking mail.
[10:20] <jesus-franco> epiloc: it integrates well with the rest of gnome,

[11:14] <rob^> daves, because you don't need the latest packages for

[11:15] <daves> ya but the startup time still sucks :(.
[11:15] <Burgundavia> rob^, that it is incorrect
[11:15] <rob^> daves, yes, theres not much we can do about that

that we don't see the true bets

=== aatim [~ghf@] has joined #ubuntu
[11:26] <bina> lo all, does Kubuntu (or ubuntu, not sure which to isntall
atm) do disk partitioning for you? and also how easy is it to upgrade
between distros, do you have to download the ISOs each time?
[11:26] <bina> many questions :)
[11:26] <hondje> bina: Yes, very, no
[11:26] <lok> LuNaTiK^GuY>> there is a nvidia panel no ?
[11:26] <hondje> lok: run 'nvidia-settings' in a terminal
[11:26] <volvoguy> BMP - "Beep Media Player" is quite impressive for a

the whole HDD or do I need to delete the partitions first?

[11:28] <LuNaTiK^GuY> i want to improve the performance...nvidia-settings

[11:28] <bina> hondje: goooood :) im feeling lazy today :)
[11:28] <volvoguy> lok: i thought just the opposite - less configs to
mess with and it usually "just works". everybody listens to music
differently though.
[11:28] <lok> LuNaTiK^GuY>> it's not windows
[11:28] <hondje> LuNaTiK^GuY: read the 'readme' on nvidia's linux driver
page for options you can add to xorg.conf
[11:28] <LuNaTiK^GuY> ok i will
[11:28] <lok> you haven't really perf to improve
[11:28] <LuNaTiK^GuY> thanks :)
[11:28] <BockBilbo> but, Burgundavia is it stable already?
[11:28] <hondje> also, you can install nvclock-gtk if you want to
overclock it

[11:29] <lok> BockBilbo>> no

[11:29] <hondje> that way if you switch distros, you can keep your stuff

stable, right?

reasons to assume that it is exactly the same cause; however, I can't
reproduce the ffox crash
[03:14] <darkmatter>
[03:14] <kev_> so i just upgraded firefox to 1.0.2-0ubuntu5.4 and now it
segfaults whenever i try to start it. should i be downgrading or is there
a better fix?

[03:16] <LuNaTiK^GuY> ok darkmatter
[03:16] <funkyHat> pitti, is it a new version of tbird too? as i'm not
getting any issues with that at all
[03:16] <darkmatter> easiest way (aside from patching the kernel)
[03:16] <pitti> funkyHat: I'm still preparing it
[03:16] <kev_> pitti: moving away .mozilla lets it load now. is it a
problem related to extensions?
[03:17] <pitti> funkyHat: it's a PITA, there are so many and so big

you should resize the second one

find the exact name you need to use with apt-get.

[03:45] <Burgundavia> Belutz, yes
[03:45] <Antinomy> ok
[03:45] <funkyHat> Belutz, but it appears to be broken at the moment ;)
[03:45] <tritium> Burgundavia, 1.0.6? The changelog for the latest
firefox shows the fixes from 1.0.5
[03:45] <topyli> jeran:

[03:46] <Antinomy> funkyHat: 60 GB drive. Used 16.2 GB; free 39.6
[03:46] <Burgundavia> tritium, .6 is merely a "don't break extensions"
[03:46] <Belutz> Burgundavia: i still see ff 1.0.2 in synaptic
[03:46] <Burgundavia> Belutz, the security fixes are backported
[03:46] <Antinomy> kbrooks: 60 GB drive. Used 16.2 GB; free 39.6
[03:46] <Belutz> ic

firefox is not the newest version available as seen on
However, all the security fixes are "backported" into Ubuntu's version.

were already "apt-got" by the ubuntu folks before i installed this. Can i
leave these packages out? (or find a list of all packages that were

crackling in my sound? :o

[04:50] <vafnord> qt2, yes, if i turn the system volume, or, say xmms
volume all the way up, it gets crackly, but if i leave them a little
lowered and adjust volume on my speakers it sound fine
[04:50] <spola> i was thinking apt-get *probably* logs what it installs
and that it *hopefully* does this by simply appending to a file. If so i
can find my packages on the bottom of this file (if only i knew which
file but im googling it atm)

[05:00] <ChurcH_of_FoamY> thanx
[05:00] <funkyHat> Antinomy, the swap partition is used when you run out
of ram, some of the data stored in the ram (hopefully data that isn't
being used immediately), is moved to the swap partition to make space in
ram for new programs to run or whatever
[05:00] <ChurcH_of_FoamY> i have to go now though

[06:57] <Sterno> Hi all. Anyone here that can help with a RAID1 question
(setup of 2nd disk - the mirroring disk?)
[06:57] <Sterno> I have 2 SATA disks. I want to use RAID1.
[06:57] <Sterno> Disk 1 is formatted as:
[06:57] <Sterno> 1 100Mb \boot
[06:57] <Sterno> 2 5Gb SWAP
[06:57] <Sterno> 3 60Gb \
[06:57] <Sterno> 4 25Gb \SRV
[06:57] <Sterno> 5 260Gb \SRV
[06:57] <Sterno> How should disk 2 be set up? This disk will be a mirror
of disk 1.
[06:57] <Sterno> The possibilities are: The same way (=same partitions,
and same file formatting) as disk 1, or same partitions + RAID
formatting, or just 1 partition + RAID formatting, or what?
[06:57] <Sterno> Anyone?
[06:57] <deFrysk> same

[06:57] <Antinomy> I dunno, this is worrisome.

rather sluggish computer
[06:58] <zerboxx> I have a keyboard with volume control, but when I use
it, I can see a volume bar going up/down, but it's actually turning
up/down my capture volume, how can I make it so it's actually changing
the playback volume???
[06:58] <ArdieM> now i only have 75hz i want 85
[06:58] <Antinomy> funkyHat: k, thanks so much man
[06:58] <ArdieM> what to do?

[07:01] <Antinomy> lol

[07:08] <Dr00pY> re tout lemonde
[07:08] <Amaranth> 1.0.6 is probably the version breezy is going to ship
[07:08] <tritium> robotgeek, you had asked me sometime back about IRC
[07:08] <ColonelKernel> tritium, unfortunately, because firefox no longer
works correctly, I have no way to look at that.
[07:08] <liquidten> ColonelKernel: the version of firefox IS actually
1.0.5, you probably downloaded the update for it today, it's just the
fact that the ubuntu devs for some reason chose not to rename the version
[07:09] <Amaranth> ColonelKernel: pitti said it's only broken until you

[07:11] <Amaranth> Burgundavia: That was why 1.0.6 was rushed out, 1.0.5
had an API regression caused by a security fix.
[07:12] <liquidten> exactly
[07:12] <Burgundavia> Amaranth, he said he was looking at .6 stuff
[07:12] <liquidten> the version we all updated was to 1.0.5 not 1.0.6
[07:12] <infox> ...
[07:12] <liquidten> you can tell because the extension bugs that caused
1.0.6 to be released are in this build
[07:12] <Amaranth> liquidten: No, you have 1.0.2 + security fixes

[08:02] <Antinomy> hey all - my workspaces and application buttons just
disappeared from my task bar...any ideas
[08:02] <Seveas> Kyral, it is...
[08:02] <Antinomy> ?
[08:02] <robotgeek> Antinomy, your panel disappeared?
[08:02] <sobersabre> anybody seen this strange thing: firefox crashes
after Ctl+T is pressed!
[08:02] <sobersabre> ?
[08:02] <Kyral> Seveas, then why does the firefox entry on the package
list list 1.0.5?
[08:02] <nalioth> Antinomy: put em back
[08:03] <Antinomy> no, it's there, and has trash.
[08:03] <zerboxx> sobersabre: Doesn't happen with my firefox
[08:03] <jason__> seveas, it says "Unknown initscript, etc/init.d/apache
not found
[08:03] <Seveas> Kyral, hang on...
[08:03] <Antinomy> robotgeek: but the apps I have open aren't showing in
[08:03] <_frank> sobersabre: that's because the hoary-security update of
firefoz is broken
[08:03] <robotgeek> sobersabre, it just opens up a new tab for me!
[08:03] <Seveas> jason__, hang on...
[08:03] <sobersabre> _frank, shite! how do i revert ?
[08:03] <Kyral> I should know, I backported it for my personal use last
night :D
[08:03] <_frank> sobersabre: it craps out on alot of extensions ad themes
[08:03] <robotgeek> Antinomy, weird!
[08:03] <jason__> Seveas, so your saying apache2 must be started before
port 80 can be opened?
[08:04] <Seveas> jason__, sudo invoke-rc.d apache2 start
[08:04] <sobersabre> _frank, it did i think.... so ...what can be done to
quickly restore functionality ?
[08:04] <Antinomy> nalioth: any ideas?
[08:04] <Kyral>
[08:04] <_frank> sobersabre: you can force it with synaptic but I think
that would bring you back to the real 1.0.2
[08:04] <Seveas> Kyral,
[08:04] <sobersabre> shit!!!!!
[08:04] <Seveas> brb
[08:04] <sobersabre> i hate such things!
[08:05] <jason__> Seveas, same thing...unknown initscript,
/etc/init.d/apache2 not found
[08:05] <Kyral> Ahh, so it isn't on the Source Repos yet?
[08:05] <nalioth> Antinomy: put them back. right click on the panel and
add notification area and pager
[08:05] <sobersabre> i am downloading vanilla firefox from the mozilla
[08:05] <robotgeek> _frank, was that update today?
[08:05] <Antinomy> All: workspace functions and app buttons have
disappeared from my taskbar panel. Any ideas?
[08:05] <_frank> robotgeek: yeah
[08:06] <sobersabre> this is kinda thing that NEVER can happen in debian
[08:06] <robotgeek> Antinomy, sorry...i don't use a normal gnome, i
[08:06] <Antinomy> Tried it already....perhaps a reboot...
[08:06] <highvoltage> robotgeek: what gnome do you use?
[08:06] <jason__> Seveas, so, your saying port 80 cannot be opened until
a webserver is running?
[08:06] <highvoltage> dropline gnome? is there another one?
[08:06] <robotgeek> highvoltage, i use openbox as the window manager
[08:06] <highvoltage> ah.
[08:06] <robotgeek> highvoltage, and have disabled nautilus
[08:06] <_frank> sobersabre: well, ubuntu is obviously not meant to be
stable by debian standards. but this still shouldn't happem
[08:07] <highvoltage> robotgeek: nautilus can be real evil sometimes.
[08:07] <nalioth> Antinomy: rebooting is only necessary when upgrading
your kernel
[08:07] <sobersabre> _frank, whom shall i email then ? :)
[08:07] <sobersabre> is it you ?

at a beauty Pageant...later
[08:18] <CapSoft> i have a 40....
[08:18] <Rockett17> Harold> tehnically it is apt-get and synaptic is the
front end.
[08:18] <Trackilizer> my videos dont have any audio anymore
[08:18] <Trackilizer> but my music still does
[08:18] <CapSoft> later knowledge_
[08:18] <Trackilizer> i tried xine and vlc
[08:18] <Antinomy> CapSoft: I want 1 part for XP, 1 part for ubu, 1 part
for fat32.
[08:18] <nalioth> Harold: did you sneak in here?
[08:18] <Harold> nalioth, Yes, I did
[08:18] <CapSoft> k Antinomy i have it too
[08:19] <Trackilizer> and none of my videos have sound
[08:19] <CapSoft> is there an OS allready installed?
[08:19] <Harold> nalioth, Well, not exactly. I've been here quietly all
[08:19] <CapSoft> or is the disk empty?
[08:19] <Antinomy> CapSoft: cool. Now, I'm just on the step where I
resize the XP part
[08:19] <nalioth> Harold: ah
[08:19] <Antinomy> CapSoft: yes
[08:19] <robotgeek> Trackilizer, which files are you trying to play?
[08:19] <CapSoft> ok so xp is on it
[08:19] <Antinomy> CapSoft: yes
[08:19] <CapSoft> and xp has 60 gig?
[08:19] <Trackilizer> all my vidoes that had audio a few mins ago
[08:19] <nalioth> Antinomy: check out my PM window when you get a minute
(nothin to hurry about)
[08:19] <Trackilizer> they all lost audio
[08:19] <Antinomy> CapSoft: resizing from 60 gig to 20
[08:20] <robotgeek> Trackilizer, try playing a mp3 file in xine/vlc
[08:20] <Trackilizer> but all my mp3 play perfectly
[08:20] <Trackilizer> okie
[08:20] <CapSoft> ok so one 20 gig partition with xp
[08:20] <Harold> nalioth, Actually, I've only been here for about an
[08:20] <CapSoft> then make another partition fat32 for ur data to be
shared with linux
[08:20] <Trackilizer> doesnt work
[08:20] <Antinomy> CapSoft: so i was think 10 GB for ubu, 30 for fat32 -
sound good? this is from advice I got
[08:20] <CapSoft> and leave the rest (20 gig) open, don't partition it...
[08:20] <Trackilizer> but it works with xmms
[08:20] <nalioth> Antinomy: i recommend you reduce to 10gb, and use the
ext2 driver for winXP
[08:20] <Harold> nalioth, Is there any reason I should be using Synaptic
as opposed to apt-get on Ubuntu?
[08:20] <CapSoft> uhm...
[08:21] <nalioth> Harold: personal preference
[08:21] <CapSoft> i'll check my ubuntu size... one moment
[08:21] <Antinomy> CapSoft: thanks
[08:21] <robotgeek> Trackilizer, hmm...check the volume settings :)
[08:21] <Trackilizer> up
[08:21] <DeMi> does anyone has an graphic FTP program for linux like
UltraFXP or FlashFXP ?
[08:21] <Trackilizer> like i said worked only a few mins ago....
[08:21] <Harold> nalioth, For example, yesterday you said I should always
use Ubuntu packages before trying Debian ones.
[08:21] <nalioth> DeMi: gftp
[08:21] <robotgeek> DeMi, gftp
[08:21] <DeMi> its not capable of FXPing right?
[08:22] <Harold> Nakkel, It's all about the repository list, isn't it?
[08:22] <qt2> is there any possible way of getting system sounds after
using this guide?:
[08:22] <DeMi> i'm configuring gftp atm
[08:22] <Harold> nalioth, , It's all about the repository list, isn't it?
[08:22] <DeMi> but i get the idea that its missing a lot of
[08:22] <robotgeek> DeMi, for that I think u need lftp, but that is
command line only
[08:22] <DeMi> mm
[08:22] <Harold> Nakkel, Oops, sorry - that message was for nalioth.
[08:22] <CapSoft> uhm.... Antinomy there is something wrong... cuz it is
only 3 gig...
[08:22] <Trackilizer> any ideas?
[08:22] <DeMi> yeah, pftp is perfect but thats sli aswell
[08:22] <CapSoft> i think that ubuntu takes more space then 3 GB.....
[08:22] <DeMi> cli
[08:22] <robotgeek> Trackilizer, i'm outta ideas!
[08:22] <nalioth> Harold: most debian binarys will not do well, with
[08:23] <qt2> zerboxx, any headway?
[08:23] <Antinomy> CapSoft: I was told 10 would be sufficient
[08:23] <CapSoft> but Antinomy 10 should be enough
[08:23] <CapSoft> indeed
[08:23] <CapSoft> it is
[08:23] <Antinomy> CapSoft: ok
[08:23] <Antinomy> cool

completion in lftp

[08:23] <Trackilizer> oh well i still have win xp

would make 3 partitions, 1 for XP, 1 for ubu, one for fat32.
[08:24] <Trackilizer> i guess linux isnt desktop ready afterall
[08:24] <emuzesto> Does anyone here know if theres any good statistic

[08:39] <NightLord> erm...
[08:39] <Amaranth> ubernostrum: it's caused by an extension
[08:40] <ubernostrum> Some of it seems to be certain extensions, but
there are a couple crashes independent of them.
[08:40] <robotgeek> nalioth, i was just talking about how ubuntu has won
me over :)
[08:40] <NightLord> how do i find the url?
[08:40] <nalioth> robotgeek: and that is doable or not? (burning the HD
and restarting from scratch)
[08:40] <ubernostrum> Amaranth: I can reproduce some of the crashes with
no extensions installed, and so can some other folks.

[10:26] <EnsignRedshirt> I have a newb question about burning a CD-RW.
In k3b, there are "start", "continue" and "finish" multisession options.
Presumably I start with "start" :)
[10:26] <Rugmonster> what's the best way to disable gdm/xdm on normal
boot? I upgraded to Breezy without reading the forums (like an idiot) and
now, my system hangs hard when trying to start X.
[10:26] <socomm> suzann: Dunno, what is yours?
[10:26] <poningru> EnsignRedshirt: yep
[10:26] <R_de_re-evolucio> is firefox broaken.. meaning that it does not
havce the last upgrade or that it is actually broken?
[10:27] <suzann> socomm: don't claim to have something you don't. be a
man and be yourself instead of using a car to make up for a tiny.. well,
lets keep it G-rated.
[10:27] <EnsignRedshirt> ...and then to add stuff later, I use
"continue"? And then "finish" must mean no more data can be written to
the CD?
