Someguy771: rebuild ffmpeg. Start by downloading ffmpeg's source package and reading debian/rules
braintorch
Hello. Is there any way to pass option to driver, if it was compiled in kernel? I mean, if it was built not as module.

You can easily fetch a package's source with apt-get. See: http://www.debian.org/doc/manuals/apt-howto/ch-sourcehandling.en.html

hi
ircuser_
When I remove a program, even if using "sudo apt-get --purge autoclean", lots of configuration files and left overs remain in system. How to remove them all automatically with program uninstall?

Someguy771: no

Guest74089 : i solved ur problem
Sami_ubi
what group must I add to use the sharing (network)?
jrib
Someguy771: Start by installing the "unstripped" libraries the wiki page mentions. Then see if you can use ffmpeg with aac. If not, then: do basically this http://blog.guesny.net/index.php/2008/06/07/ubuntu-vs-aac-round-1/ but you should also do a « dch -i » before running dpkg-buildpackage so you can append "~someguy1" to the package version and explain your changes.
clrg
My lost+found-folder on my external USB drive has a size of 136GB, taking up all the space left on the device. What happened?
Dr_Willis
clrg: looks like lots of stuff goit moved when the filesystem got fscked.
clrg
Dr_Willis: And what do I do with the data in there? I mean, do I need it?
Someguy771
jrib: so I download the source, compile it with what parameters?
Dr_Willis
clrg: look at it and see.. its 100+GB of your data that was on teh HD..
jrib
Someguy771: the blog link tells you how to rebuild it
Someguy771
jrib: the first one or hte second one?
Sami_ubi
jrib no idea ? :S
jrib
Someguy771: I only gave one blog link. The first link was to a wiki
Sami_ubi: you don't need any group membership afaik. Did it ever work?
Someguy771
sorry
Sami_ubi
yeah
2 weeks ago
jrib
Sami_ubi: what OS is doing the sharing?
!who | Sami_ubi
ubottu
Sami_ubi: As you can see, this is a large channel. If you're speaking to someone in particular, please put their nickname in what you say (use !tab), or else messages get lost and it becomes confusing :)
clrg
Dr_Willis: I see. It seems, almost all my virtual machines have been moved there. Is there a way to restore the order from before? File tells me what file type I am dealing with, but they are oddly named.
Turbolinux
Kerim: I am looking for Foremost software. How can I set the program for transferring rescued files to the notebook computer's hard disk drive? I am using Ubuntu from USB memory stick and I will make a recovery operation from Windows.
zhouting
what is the process that runs xfce4 desktop?
Sami_ubi
jrib: I have 1 windows 7 in network, and 1 ubuntu 9.10, and this ...
zhouting
I mean the icons and backdrop.
xumuk
zhouting, xdm
Dr_Willis
clrg: not that i know of. gotta look and restore them there you need them
jrib
Sami_ubi: can you confirm that sharing works on a different computer?
Sami_ubi
yeah
kerim
TurboLinux : i didn't use foremost at windows
Sami_ubi
jrib: I can share files with win7 and the other ubuntu
zhouting
xumuk, I suppose xdm is a display manager.
kerim
TurboLinux : i m using freq testdisk
Sami_ubi
jrib: 2 weeks ago, I have shared from this
xumuk
zhouting, Desktop Manager
kerim
TurboLinux : for my rescue operations
Sami_ubi
jrib: and now I made some changes... but what is the wrong change ?
jrib
Sami_ubi: what changes did you make/
Turbolinux
So how can I set TestDisk program for my need?
braintorch
Oh, found it. You can specify parameter for driver that is built into the kernel image by passing "driver.parameter=value" option to kernel command line. Just in case if somebody was interested.
fabio333
mozilla.org is the right place to get pissed off: every versione of firefox there comes with cairo disabled so the fonts look ugly
Sami_ubi
jrib: in groups... but i dont remember so...
kerim
TurboLinux : when u use test disk . It will ask where to store your rescue file
TurboLinux : don't store rescued file same media ( hdd )
TurboLinux : don't store rescued file same media ( hdd ) !
zhouting
Xdm manages a collection of X displays, which may be on the local host or remote servers. The design of xdm was guided by the needs of X terminals as well as The Open Group standard XDMCP, the X Display Manager Control Protocol. Xdm provides services similar to those provided by init, getty and login on character terminals: prompting for login name and password, authenticating the user, and running a ``session.''
kerim
TurboLinux : if u do . This is a big mistake !
TurboLinux : because as you know . You can erase old data for try rescued disk

I'm having an interesting issue with my laptop. I have Ubuntu 9.10 32-bit installed inside of Windows Vista, and something caused GRUB to stop booting linux. When it gets to GRUB it stops at sh:grub> I tried the commands Linux and Boot, but the both give errors. No kernel specified and no kernel loaded. I can boot into windows just fine. Anyone know how I can fix this?
Dr_Willis
