wrapster
a 32 bit kernel cannot detect more than 4G ram .. pull these pkgs and you get more
C-S-B-N900
doesn't mean you cant sync your ipod
acicula
wrapster: you can not enable it, but you can install a kernel with pae support
ezra14
kushalone: i tried using wine but it kept freezing
kushalone
Why would you want iTunes in the first place ...
Roasted

wrapster
acicula: yeah.. typo.
FloodBot4
!netsplit
         

C-S-B-N900
exactly kushalone
acicula
wrapster: mind you this does not expand the adres space of a process past 4GB, just the amount the kernel can manage

netsplit is when two IRC servers of the same network (like freenode) disconnect from each other, so users on one server stop seeing users on the other. If this is happening now, just relax and enjoy the show. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Netsplit
ezra14
switch10_: i tried using wine but it kept freezing on me
Roasted
Question - When did the sudo apt-add-repository command come into play? Was that jaunty or karmic?
switch10_
why do you need itunes?
C-S-B-N900
Roasted: i think karmic
kushalone
a mass kick?
acicula
wrapster: afaik they are called image-pae or something similar in the repors
ezra14
siwtch10_: my whole library is on it
overmind
kushalone: A netsplit
C-S-B-N900

acicula
netsplit is where irc servers loose contact
*lose
kushalone

overmind
kushalone: One of freenode's server has disconnected
C-S-B-N900
you must be new to irc.
acicula
C-S-B-N900: this is #ubuntu
aetaric
heh. netsplits....
switch10_
ezra14: no, the physical files are located somewhere on you computer
guntbert
kushalone: btw you can set your client to ignore join/part messages
         

switch10_
ezra14: unless you mean you have to re download them VIA the itunes store??
acicula
my ubuntu special sause /ignore #ubuntu +QUITS +PARTS +JOINS +NICKS +QUITS, and a whole slew of nicks, keeps it pretty manageable imo
greezmunkey
kushalone, irssi?
acicula
ow wait that should be +MODES ?
C-S-B-N900
ezra14: vbox with windows is an option.
simer

acicula
simer: does the low resolution driver work? do you get a graphical environment?
crazy_newbee
Hi
daz
ezra14: you can always use virtualbox
crazy_newbee
I was wondering if any of you could help me with getting my acer webcam on Ubuntu 9.04 up and running
simer
acicula: yes i do, but its 800X600 and it flickers
TheCab
I have a bug to report about gcc4.4.3...
jeff_hann
crazy_newbee: install cheese
acicula
crazy_newbee: if its detected you can test it by startin gstreamer-properties (in a conole or via alt f2)
console
greezmunkey

daz
TheCab: report gcc bugs to the gcc guys <:
ezra14
daz: what's virtual box?
crazy_newbee
acicula: The problem is that the camera works off and on
acicula
TheCab: erm, probably best reported to launchpad or directly to the gcc devs
crazy_newbee
It's very moody
acicula
crazy_newbee: thats, odd
13WAALV07
acicula, iflema, netbook wireless up and running thanks
acicula
crazy_newbee: any predictable/repeatable behaviour? posssible hardware problems?
simer: hmm, well i did a google on that chip and i didnt turn up much
simer: appearantly there is an open source sis driver
vixus
What on earth has happened to (x)ubuntu? Why can't I change my gdm theme?
acicula
simer: seems https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/xserver-xorg-video-sis/+bug/332140 has some suggestions
crazy_newbee
acicula: Well not really predictable. The camera works perfectly well in the case of other operating systems. I attempted to work with Windows, and other open source OS as well
iflema
radar3d :)
acicula
crazy_newbee: well try gstreamer-properties and see if that works reliable, its a pretty basic tool, if you can reproduce it there you know its something with the drivers and not a particular program
reliably
simer
acicula: thanks , will try the open source driver
JunkNUtz
hey is anyone using a Sound Blaster Xfi?
crazy_newbee
acicula: So it works on gstreamer now. The problem isn't replicable. May be it is the problem with the version of Skype I'm using. Any suggestions on that? Thanks a bunch for this btw.
veleno
how can i see all sudoers users ?
michalxo_lucid
veleno: cat /etc/sudoers
acicula
simer: the launchpad also links to someone building the driver for 9.10, but it looks like the driver is simply not packaged anymore for newer ubuntu versions
crazy_newbee: not really unfortunatly
veleno
sh*t
acicula
crazy_newbee: there is no way to trouble shoot skype, if you have problems there you have to contact the skype support
zelrikriando
holy
acicula
!language
JunkNUtz
what is going on with this chat room?
acicula
JunkNUtz: you have an ubuntu related support question?
crazy_newbee
acicula: Alright. Thanks!
michalxo_lucid
JunkNUtz: there was a .net .split == global disconnection and now reconenction :-)
veleno
michalxo_lucid: so this line "%sudo ALL=NOPASSWD: ALL" means that all sudoer users can issue commands without typing password..but how can I know if my user is a sudoer ?
JunkNUtz
yeah i have a ubuntu related question
derp

JunkNUtz
Does anyone here have a Sound Blaster Xfi?
michalxo_lucid
crazy... bye guys!
acicula
just add joins/quits to your irc ignore list
michalxo_lucid
:-)
acicula: I will next time :-)
TheCab
Thanks everybody for information because I never did that
acicula
everything from the last 10mins easily fits on my screen here with a sufficiently large ignore list
but juts taking out the quits/joins should fix most of the noise already
bsmith093
i have a question about backup procedure.
zelrikriando
acicula: I wish the join/quits were on a separate screen
vixus
zelrikriando, don't display them
acicula
zelrikriando: well i was ponderin if that is possible in irssi, to redirect all ignores to a seperate window
bsmith093
if i backup my user folder
zelrikriando
because I still like to see them if I want
bsmith093
will that save all the menu configs too
anarcat
is there a way to create a live usb stick out of karmic iso images that doesn't involve having ubuntu installed (ie. if i'm on debian or another OS that is not windows or mac)?
acicula
bsmith093: all configurations you made as a user yes
bsmith093
ancarat yes unetbootin
16SAACHCB
where can i see the list of users in the channel
anarcat
bsmith093: ack
acicula
the menu is built from the system wide menu, and then merged with your own changes you made as a user
anarcat
crzy here
Kreppnar
anyone using a Sound Blaster Xfi?
luis_
My bluetooth in my acer aspire 4520 never worked, what is happening?
kriogetron
Is there a way to repair ubuntu packages automaticaly? I think my sistem is broken
acicula
!bluetooth
ubottu
For instructions on how to set up bluetooth, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BluetoothSetup
bsmith093
so specifically regarding the wine config folder, that menu's entries will be proserved
acicula
bsmith093: yes
bsmith093
ok then thanks
frxstrem1
when I'm running Ubuntu's built-in VNC server, is there a hotkey to disconnect all devices connected?
acicula
luis_: have a look at the page, but you will have to be more specific, is a bluetooth device not working, does your receiver not work, do you have trouble setting up a connection etc.
Kreppnar
you using Tightvnc?
bsmith093
one more thing when i am backing up if i select skip all that will only backup the new stuff and skip the stuff that has the same name right
acicula
bsmith093: depends on what action you choose skip all i think
Kreppnar
im looking for help with two things
anyone here have a Compaq CQ50-215nr laptop
knoppix
hi
anarcat
bsmith093: nice, unetbootin... it works, thanks!
acicula
Kreppnar: probably not, but ask your question anyway?
bsmith093
so is there a completely idiot proof backup tool that will atuomatically prune the stuff that has been deleted but add the new stuff also
acicula
!backup
ubottu
There are many ways to back your system up. Here's a few: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BackupYourSystem , https://help.ubuntu.com/community/DuplicityBackupHowto , https://wiki.ubuntu.com/HomeUserBackup , https://help.ubuntu.com/community/MondoMindi - See also !sbackup and !cloning
Kreppnar
ok my second question. I have a Sound Blaster Xfi Platinum. Sounds works fine and everything, but has anyone figured out how to get the I/O Module to work yet?
acicula
should be something in there bsmith093
Kreppnar
guess not
we waited two years for a crappy driver
great
seems like major company's dont know how to program for linux, or just hate it, cause it dont make any money
acicula
Kreppnar: lack of drivers is not solved by complaining here but to your vendor, as for getting stuff to work, if its something more exotic posting a support question to the ubuntuforums may yield better results then asking here
abhi_nav
Kreppnar, i have compaq presario and ubuntu and fedora works out of the box here (only tried these two) no problem except that win-modem thing
running_rabbit07
why wait when you could make one yourself?
Kreppnar
ok my second question is about the Compaq CQ50-215NR laptop, and it has a button that turns on and turns off the wireless..i cant get the wireless to turn on or recognize the driver even with a windows provided driver
acicula
Kreppnar: http://connect.creativelabs.com/opensource/Wiki/SoundCard%20Support.aspx maybe this can help you further
well there is the wireless wiki
Kreppnar
ok when the wireless on the laptop is on, the button turns blue, and when its off, it turns orange. It wont turn blue when it is pressed, and it says there is no hardware at all
acicula
!wireless

Wireless documentation, including how-to guides and troubleshooting information, can be found at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WifiDocs
acicula
can you see networks when you click on the network applet in the panel?
Kreppnar
yeah, but it never connects
knoppix
hi everyone
acicula
Kreppnar: did you open/wep modes if wpa doesnt work?
*try
not suggestion that as a permanent solution
Kreppnar
my router is set for wep. all my other wireless devices connect just fine
mickster04
Kreppnar: you know that wep is easily crackable?
Kreppnar
figures
i could switch it to WAP, how much more complicated would it get?
acicula
yeah for security wpa/wpa2, wep is enough to keep out the neighbours though, regardless the best way to solve wireless problems is to check what wireless card you have, make sure you are updated and patched via update-manager(yes this requires a connection) and then checking the wifi if there are special things to consider
antivirtel
hello all
acicula
Kreppnar: provided your device supports it it works the same from an end user point of view
Kreppnar
then maybe a WAP
router is a D-Link N router
antivirtel
I have integrated IRDA port in my laptop, but if i want to send something from my phone ubuntu doesn't recive it, what can I do ? (I have an old IBM laptop)
mickster04
acicula: i concider wep to be dead, you can crack in an hour or so on a mediocre computer my personal research suggests?
Kreppnar
only things in my house that connect are a Wii, and my Android phone
xuantiep
i need help !
mickster04
antivirtel: hav you installed stuff for it?
Kreppnar
whats the question?
acicula
mickster04: your research seems outdated, and offtopic
mickster04

antivirtel
mickster04 what stuff ? old laptop, there are no installion disk(produced 1999)
Kreppnar
I was reading through my Auth.log, and its amazing how many times i get failed attempts from people trying to SSH into my system.
acicula
Kreppnar: what wireless card do you have?
Kreppnar
mostly from China, or Taiwan
its a Atheros i beleive
acicula
Kreppnar: if you are connected to the internet directly then that happens often
mickster04
antivirtel: is it built in infrared?
antivirtel
mickster04 yes, I said: integrated
Kreppnar
luckily they dont have a password or anything
acicula
Kreppnar: well have a look at the wifi docs to see if there any special issues
mickster04
antivirtel: might be outdated but try https://help.ubuntu.com/community/IrdaHowto
antivirtel
mickster04 ok, I try it
dutchie
hey all, having a few problems with my old man's wireless connection

acicula
!wireless | dutchie , best to start here

dutchie , best to start here: Wireless documentation, including how-to guides and troubleshooting information, can be found at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WifiDocs
Kreppnar
well the wireless isn't a huge concern right now, just thought i would get some insight on it since im in here...the laptop got stepped on by my friend so the screen is cracked in half...so its plugged up to the 32 inch television. It gets it's internet from a ethernet wall plug
Sioux-33
hi, ubuntu 9.10 i updated kernel to version 2.6.31.21 and mousse cursor is gone dont know what happen any ideas?

Kreppnar
