kriogetron

switch10_
wrapster: yeah i don't know why it's giving you that error, it is the correct architecture
kriogetron
blakkheim, thank you sir!
TViYH
jrib: you don't get it..
pierre_
dcgv
         

acicula
TViYH: anyway you dont need to deteach from a screen to be able to attach to it, it can have multiples of those
pierre_
sorry
jrib
TViYH: what don't I get...?
TViYH
i want it to create the screen session, run a command in said session, then detach the session
i've done it before
but i forget the parameters
ptrxyz
Could someone help me with gnome-volume-control? pulse audio seems to report a wrong volume range and now the volume control mutes all sounds at around ~33%
jrib
TViYH: I get that. If you type the three words I told you, you'll get tons of hits on it
pierre_
My laptop is too old to run Xorg, so I'm using irssi here
greezmunkey
TViYH: Inside of screen, Ctrl+a then d
acicula
gartral: what am i supposed to see
TViYH
i don't want to go inside the screen
it has to be automatic
jrib
TViYH: because most people when they do what you are trying to do, use crontab with @reboot
pierre_
I want to know how to configure the screen size because the screen has a smallest size than the posibility
ptrxyz
is there a way to override the hardware reported volume range for pulseaudio?
acicula
pierre_: in X?
pierre_
(Action) sorry for my english
trism
TViYH: man screen, -d -m (creates screen in detached mode)
gartral
acicula: the LACK of the ussual cpu descriptors that are supposed to be present for each logical cpu and all the fields listed "Too Be Filled by O.E.M."
pierre_
no acicula
TViYH
but i have to run a command in the session at the same time, trism
pierre_
in "consol"
         

acicula
what cpu descriptors
jrib
TViYH: so pass the command to screen as usual...
patg
hello! is there anyone, or another channel that can help me understand GRUB/rEFIt and how I can stop failing at life?
trism
TViYH: yes, you can still add a command with that: screen -d -m command_here
acicula
i see cache structures i see instruction sets?
TViYH
soooo screen -US irssi -d -m irssi
trism
TViYH: yes
TViYH
would create a session named irssi running command irssi
kriogetron
Also restricted driver manager doesn't seem to get my drivers for my video card, how can I install them manually?
patg
its for ubuntu studio x64 on a macbook pro 4,1
pierre_
I'm french and have a bad english.
TViYH
kthx guise
gartral
kriogetron: what graphics card do you have?
ACKT1C
oh well
kriogetron
gartral, i have a ati hd4330
gartral
pierre_: you could join #ubuntu-fr :)
patg

DasEi
radar3d: was that (grub) to me ?
kriogetron
gartral, on a dell laptop:P
pierre_
gartral: thanks !
DasEi
patg: there is #grub (for version 2)
patg
i will try there also. thank you DasEi .
BenHoltz

(Action) is still banging head on wall from the botched grub update

omkar
how to uninstall the nvidia propiertory driver
CarlFK
omkar: how did you install it?
omkar
sh Nvidia....pkg.run
in run level 3
Cael@ u there
ubuntu
jfk's carls jr menu
omkar
@CarlFK
CarlFK
omkar: /j #nvidia - ask there
acicula
a quick reinstall can be done in under 20minutes, thats quicker then tracking down every file that bin installed
omkar
: /j #nvidia - ask there
ok
CarlFK
acicula: is that for nvidia/ omkar?
acicula
omkar: if its a new install, just wipe and try again, and use the ubuntu provided drivers
CarlFK: yeah
CarlFK
good :)
acicula
the problem with running installers as root is that they ignore any package managment and all kinds of configuration goodies your distro, such as ubuntu has
jorgiito
welcome
abuntu
abuntu.com
omkar
yes acicula
but how is the question
ubuntu
reiback?
acicula
you can try removing the installed files of course but that wont remediate files that were overwritten, so you may end up with a system thats even hosed more then before you tried to uninstall those drivers
omkar: reinstall would be my suggestion, there is no uninstall from .bin
ubuntu
WHO YOU CALLIN COOTY QUEEN YOU LINT LICKER
omkar
even i want to install the Open Source Nvidia drivers
acicula
ubuntu: chane your nick, and behave

papul
hi. i want an app that scans an mp3 file and get relevant tag info from the net automatically. i used to do that in winamp
acicula
omkar: yes i meant a reinstall of ubuntu, its the easiest and quickest way to get rid of problems caused by a manual nvidia installation
iflema
omkar did you use the Nvidia...-pkg1.run? if so in a terminal sudo service gdm stop and use the --uninstall option
omkar
yes
i used pkg run
wait i will go n do that
trism
papul: picard can do that

anom01y
Hey guys, anyone know why my Xubuntu (freshly reinstalled) freezes when I leave it in ctrl alt f7 mode

GoldShadow
best cd/dvd burning tool in ubuntu ??$
anom01y
this is overnight that it freezes
switch10_
papul: or easyTAG
anom01y
GoldShadow, Nero Linux
acicula
GoldShadow: brasero/k3b are popular, theres no best
sayanriju
papul, I think EasyTag has that capability
GoldShadow
can be read on windows ??
papul
ok trying it
ubuntu
debian business card network how may i direct your call?
papul
thnks
iflema
omkar stopping gdm will drop you to something like init3 (runlevel 3)
acicula
GoldShadow: cd/dvd use standard formats not specific to an os so yes
psusi
runlevel 2 and 3 are no different
GoldShadow
thx
psusi
by default
greezmunkey
GoldShadow: Download trial: http://www.nero.com/enu/linux4.html
acicula

omkar

acicula

omkar
--uninstall option
psusi
acicula, it emulates them
acicula
psusi: ow, that counts then :)
iflema
omkar sh NVIDIA.....-pkg1.run --uninstall?

i guess i will use winamp with wine
my best option
di
hi. does <audio> work in firefox in the lucid lynx beta for anyone?
sample: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Rondo_Alla_Turka.ogg
dude1
Anyone for some assistance with configuring grub to boot PC-BSD?
papul
will it run fine?
Roasted
Has anybody had any luck getting Atheros 2413 working in Ubuntu?
di
the player won't run past 00:00. small burst of sound, then nothing.
acicula
di: lucid support in #ubuntu+1
guntbert
!runlevel > acicula
ubottu
acicula, please see my private message
di
oh sorry
k
acicula
thats cool
guntbert: that doesnt work, see above
papul
will winamp run fine with wine?
jeeez
can someone suggest tools for frequency analysis of words in text files?
Roasted
papul, why do you want winamp? There are lots of media players for linux.
Factoid
I'm trying to debug a wxWidgets segfault. I think it might be my graphics drivers. I was wondering if there's any way to run a reference SW OGL driver in xorg?
papul
Roasted: only for one reason
guntbert
acicula: sorry, wanted to tell you that the runlevel concept is rapidly fading out in ubuntu
acicula
papul: you can check winehq (site) for compatability with wine, but my guess is yes, but as someone pointed out more then likely there is a ubuntu program that does what you want
guntbert: im aware
switch10_
papul: I believe it does..
Cptnodegard
Does anyone know if Ubuntu Netbook Edition will run on the Viliv S% UMPC? It uses the POulsbo chipsset (Z520+GMA500) so in theory it should work, but I'm not sure if there are any other HW drivers that are missing
switch10_
papul: you didn't like easytag?
Roasted
whats the reason papul
Factoid
cptnodeguard: I'm using an acer A0751h, same chipset.
acicula
Cptnodegard: easiest way is just to try, et a usb stick and have a go
papul
switch10_: dint work :(
acicula
*get
jeeez: awk,wc etc
Cptnodegard
Factoid sure but the 751d isnt a 4.8" UMPC :)
Factoid
It does work, 3D seems sketchy, but you can get good performance in xorg if you're not running games and stuff.
acicula
jeeez: there probably are some tools already made to do that kind of thing thouh
switch10_
papul: hmm try picard...
HowardtheDuck
heh
patg
acicula: I am installing ubuntu studio x64 on a macbook pro 4,1. triple booting with osx win7 and studio x64. this is like the fourth time reinstalling ubuntu. I dont know where/how to use grub. I just want rEFIt to take me directly into each OS. so first i tried without GRUB. win7 and ubuntu dont boot. then i tried with grub. now at the rEFIt screen i get two ubuntus that both takle me to grub and then boot successfully. I just dont really understand. So I'm red
it again and ubuntu studio keeps trying to make it like so (/dev/sda4 = 1mb biosgrub, /dev/sda5=90.9 GB ext4, /dev/sda6= 3.9GB swap
Factoid
It's a different system, but you'd probably still depend on the psb drivers.
Cptnodegard
Factoid: I'm doing a reivew of the viliv and just wanted to mention quickly if it worked, dont have any intention of using it myself. With slow internets, downloaidn git just to find out takes too long
Vok
Hi. I'm trying to format my mp3 player but I can't (I don't know why=
acicula
patg: i dont know anything about rEFIt
Factoid
So I'm just letting you know how it's worked out with me. A mixed bag basically.
jeeez
acicula: yup, hope i don't have to code it myself!
n3f
hi everyone
myrl
wouldn't it be better if ubuntu came with google chrome rather than firefox?
