edbian
deathknight, You're gonna have to be more specific than that :)
cmorillo
I'll see if I can find something about it. You have been of much help anyways kerim , thanks!

Guest5957: times out how?

!enter | Guest5957
ubottu
Guest5957: Please try to keep your questions/responses on one line - don't use the "Enter" key as punctuation!
Guest5957
As in starts transferring, then says it can't connect to the server
edbian
deathknight, That is quite a feat :) When I started using linux 2 years ago something like that would have been EXTREMELY difficult. I'm glad we fixed it so easily :)
Trek
Guest5957, do you have access to the server? are you being banned?
Guest5957
And there are no network issues, it is plainly due to ftp
No, this server is like less than a metre away form the computer I'm using
I do not have a crossover cable
deathknight
edbian: the boot problem i was talking is like this. : when i startup the machine.. it shows grub loading.. and later it just shows dark screen with a "_" blinking on top left
Death_
Can anyone here help with a Grub 17 error?
i have read the matierial stated :(
wols
Guest5957: is _any_ data transferred from the file you try to download at all
DarthPuff
genii: i have xinit working

nclucid
having trouble with synergy lagging on client. karmic server, windows 7 client. tried running as root, but that didn't help. any suggestions?
Guest5957
Yes, it transfers like a small amount
Trek
Guest5957, how is the system connected to your system?
Guest5957
Then it decides it doesn't want to talk to the server
It is on the same subnet
Trek
Guest5957, is the system's ftp port open?
Death_
gnomefreak?

does anybody know why the battery percentage on xmobar would display infinity?
Guest5957
It should be
It is not a computer, but an xbox
genii
DarthPuff: Apologies on lag, it is late where I am. Did it require some other display than :0 or was it xorg.conf, something else?
wols
Death_: fdisk -l
Guest5957
And the ftp settings should allow me to connect
deathknight
edbian: sometimes that and sometimes, it goes to grubmenu and when i select ubuntu and press enter it again goes to same blinking thing.. and sometimes boots normally. is it that the machine is not fully supported?
Trek
Guest5957, o.O that might be your issue
Guest5957
I have had no issues in the past
edbian
deathknight, Not sure what the issue could be. My guess: some hardware is on the verge of failing. How long have you given it
Guest5957
Just today it seems to be fu*king with me :(
Death_
wols: what do you mean?
sr_
I wonder if anyone can help me beef up user end security on standard ubuntu - I don't want anyone messing with any settings - including firefox - without a password

deathknight
edbian: installed just a couple ofhours ago. had xp with mint before.
DarthPuff
genii: i have no idea... xinit without an xinitrc starts x, but with it it won't. also if i type startx i get a blank screen.
kerim
sr_ : u can use firefox as secure mode
wols
sr_: then set the files permissions accordingly
zbrahead91-dedi
Anybody know how to build a PPA source package out of the ubuntu kernel git repo?
Guest5957
oh my, sorry
edbian
sr_, Typically they can't mess with any settings that effect anybody but themselves. That's the whole point of the root user and sudo. Do you want them to not be allowed to make their own settings?
deathknight, What is mint for xp
kerim
sr_ : firefox -> Tools -> Start Private Browsing
wols
DarthPuff: then check your X logs and your ~/.xsession-errors
ZykoticK9
slackin, did you perhaps make some other sort of terminal change that would be affecting mc? I just tested in both Lucid & Kamic with both xterm and gnome-terminal - and in all cases mc looked fine.
deathknight
edbian: ?? i mean i had mint and xp dual boot
bigtom21485
im having trouble getting my amd64 laptop to run at full speed when on battery. i have it set manually to run 1ghz, when i tell it go to 2ghz it doesnt listen to me.
sr_
to anyone: this is my dads computer, but other people will be using it - and he DOESN'T need anything to be changed other than me.
bigtom21485
is there a way i can just have it run full speed all the time?
kerim
sr_ : firefox -> Tools -> Start Private Browsing
edbian
deathknight, Oh! I thought mint was some program for xp :)
DarthPuff
wols: as long as x starts with xinit i am happy :)
deathknight
edbian: :) hehe
wols
sr_: it does. it need to have access to the history file so your dad has a browser history which he wants
edbian
deathknight, I can't offer any advice for why ubuntu gets stuck at boot. How did you like mint?
Death_
Can anyone here help with a Grub 17 error?

i have read the matierial stated :(

ZykoticK9: its ubuntu server i believe
and no its all default
and works great in slackware
but when ssh'd to that ubunutu machine
its all funky
i checked exports
kerim
sr_ : use guest mode when u give another person
deathknight
edbian: mint was good. had all plugins and codecs from beginning.. so i got it. since i didnt have net in home.
slackin
its all correct as far as i can tell
and im pretty good with linux, used slackware since 1998
edbian
deathknight, I see. I like Ubuntu. Always fresh and up to date :) I run debian now though for the stability
