FloodBot3
n-iCe: Please don't flood, use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste, don't use Enter as punctuation.
Pici
MrUnagi: Yes.. but why do you need to do that?
Kingsy102
i.e not GIMP.. I mean adobe
Crimius

Pici
Kingsy102: No. Some versios of PS can run in Wine though.
eagles05138785

MrUnagi
i dunno im at my final attempts to get os x to boot.......all of a sudden it doesnt want to
n-iCe
eagles05138785: how do I get that
Pici
MrUnagi: Well. I don't know anything about OSX. Perhaps you should ask in their channel.
eagles05138785
n-iCe: for instance a core to duo model number is E7400 for example. are you trying to find out what is in your machine

xangua
psychuil: for installing the latest stable fx in ubuntu use either 'firefox-stable PPA' or 'Ubuntuzilla' repositories
MrUnagi

shiley

Schokoho1ic
One quick question: Is there a way to make gnome-terminal show bells in the task bar -- or elsewhere? My computer doesn't have a soundcard so I won't notice the bell -- for example when someone highlights me on IRC -- while the terminal is in the background.
Pici
MrUnagi: Because its a different operating system?
n-iCe

Nollog
Schokoho1ic: Can you program? That would be pretty easy to do.
eagles05138785
ikonia: im not understanding what id do you want
_UsUrPeR_
I'm using apt-mirror to create a local repository on an internal server at my office network. It's become a consensus that we no longer need to have a local mirror of the 8.04 LTS in the office, but I can't figure out how to remove all the old hardy packages. Does anybody know of a good way to purge all hardy packages from my server?
psychuil
blakkheim, english is not my main language, and it's not nice to mock people.
_UsUrPeR_
We've also got a local repo of both 9.10 and 10.04 Alpha, so just deleting the repository directory would require a re-download of ~80 gigs
Schokoho1ic
Nollog: Yes, actually I study Computer Science. So there is no option to do that by default?
ikonia
eagles05138785: I'd like you to show me the output of the command "id" please
eagles05138785
ikonia: uid=1000(jonathan) gid=1000(jonathan) groups=4(adm),20(dialout),24(cdrom),46(plugdev),109(lpadmin),110(sambashare),111(admin),1000(jonathan)

Have you heard of RAID being a problem during installs?
maeki
n-ice yes
Nollog
Schokoho1ic: Don't know, but you can do it yourself by looking up the bel character.
maeki

Nollog
if bel, do boom.
shiley
which clear text file has the network configs for the ETH0 in ubuntu server?
Schokoho1ic
Nollog: That's in fact my least favourite option... thought there was some easy way that I just didn't see. Thanks anyways. :)
Nollog
Schokoho1ic: There probably is, I don't linux much.

how to config the network in Ubuntu server thru clear text file?
mhall119|work
/etc/network/interfaces
shiley
i skipped the network setup on the DVD install, and now i am using ifconfig in rc.local
mhall119| work, thanks
but cannot find such a file..:(
psusi
shiley: man interfaces for how to write one, then you can just use ifup/ifdown to activate and deactivate the interface(s) using those parameters
shiley
psusi, ok , i will try it
psusi
or set them to auto in the interfaces file
Slart
shiley: it's really just a simple text file.. man interfaces will tell you more about it
shiley
Slart, ok will do
i will try and get back (if i fail)
thanks all , bbl
