VLC (latest version) stops automatically when the video is broken (damaged), because of that i have to click always to resume button. But other media players can resume the video (even it is broken-even the screen going to black) until finish the problem. i know that VLC is the best player for broken files. But i don't know how to edit from settings to "do not stop (or resume) even the file is broken" ? Can someone helps me? Thanks!

freedar: you may have to ask the vlc folks
freedar
ok.

Hey guys, I have a problem, more specific a wireless problem. I have an MSI Cr700 wich has a built in WLAN card, can I somehow make it work in Ubuntu?
I`ve searched for the name of my card to see if it`s supported by Ubuntu but couldn`t find anything. Do you guys have any ideeas?
More Specs of my laptop can be found here: http://www.msi.com/index.php?func=prodtmpspec&maincat_no=135&cat2_no=&cat3_no=&prod_no=1847
Thanks in advance!

Guest15379
i created a new user account with root privledges but when i type i cant use arrow keys
it also just shows $ it doesnt show name@server
ChogyDan
ThinkClear: I think your wireless will work fine, you should try out the livecd. It should work there
jimcooncat
Guest15379: there are better ways to accomplish what you need
freerunners
what do you mean?
ThinkClear
ok, thank you. I shall try it now as I just finished burning a copy of ubuntu
jimcooncat
Guest15379: from your account "sudo su -"
freerunners
the new one or the original one?
HowardtheDuck
hey
david_
list
jimcooncat
Guest15379: that will give you root with root's environment. I believe you'll have your actions logged, though.

What program on Ubuntu would you open a .daa file with?

HowardtheDuck
blakkheim: how do i do that man?
C-S-B-N900
HowardtheDuck: if they are old kernels,for safety why not keep them in. else read up on grubw2
blakkheim
HowardtheDuck: look through your installed packages for older kernels and uninstall them
oal_
Debian or Ubuntu for server?
HowardtheDuck
firstly removing old kernels, secondly, how do i login as root?
or do you mean sudo
blakkheim
oal_: matter of opinion (but i say debian)
guntbert
jimcooncat: there is sudo -s and sudo -i - have a look please - they act more cleanly with the environment
HowardtheDuck
ok lemme check syntapic now
freerunners
ahh that worked thanks a lot
oal_
blakkheim: What's better with debian?
freerunners
but which should i have used
-s or -i?
C-S-B-N900
HowardtheDuck: why do you need to login as root, sudo should be enough.
blakkheim
oal_: that's a bit offtopic for this channel
HowardtheDuck
C-S-B-N900: thats what i was asking, thanks
i have no need for old kernels
oal_
blakkheim: I asked this in #ubuntu and #debian, just wanted to know. I think I'm going to use Debian
blakkheim
oal_: good choice
DasEi
TxMatt: http://paste.ubuntu.com/404185/
HowardtheDuck
what do i search for in syntapic to find installed kernels?
guntbert
HowardtheDuck: but keep one older (just in case...)
blakkheim
HowardtheDuck: linux-image
TxMatt
Thanks.
HowardtheDuck
thanks
just in case what? i've never logged into one of those old kernels, ever.
rocket16
Is there a free Net IP Messenger or IP Ad for Ubuntu?

chowder
I need to install Ubuntu on a PC with no Cd drive so I took out the HDD and put it in another PC. If I install Ubuntu to this HDD and then return it to its original PC would I face any configuration issues?
blakkheim
chowder: probably not
guntbert
HowardtheDuck: you "may" run into issues with the latest - and then its nice to be able to make one step back
Nonickname-
Hey there..
HowardtheDuck
guntbert: got it thanks. strangely though, all the dubpliate ubuntu entries have the same version number though
chowder
blakkheim: I figured as much but I'm just a little worried
Nonickname-
Anyone available to help me out pls?
blakkheim
Nonickname-: just ask your question
chowder: you could install with a usb drive
C-S-B-N900
whats the prob
HowardtheDuck
no wait
they are not identical, i misspoke, sorry
:)
cybercrypt13
chowder: it really depends on how different the two computers are
jimcooncat
chowder: simple to install Ubuntu to hd with uninstall, use wubi; but that's not what you need I think
Trek
is there a way to trigger a notification on a remote system through ssh and have it appear there?
jimcooncat
chowder: you need a tftp server to netboot Ubuntu
C-S-B-N900
yes
Nonickname-
I downloaded Ubuntu 9.10 and installed it on my computer, but it kept crashing and freezing off my computer, and giving kernal errors.. I downloaded it from Ubuntu.com - so I had to remove it and install the 9.04 - but the thing is in 9.04 my wireless connection isnt working.. I can work via wired connections only.. I updated/upgraded my os, and nothing really changed.. how can I fix it?
C-S-B-N900
trek with libnotify
cybercrypt13
Trek, you talking about trying to send a message to another person on ssh?
chowder
jimcooncat: wubi is not what I need at all
HowardtheDuck
ok got images 19 and 20 i'm saving, and marked 17-14 for complete removal in syntapic
chowder
blakkheim: I could but there's something weird going on with this particular PC's usb
HowardtheDuck

aptitude is apt-get isnt it ?
blakkheim
sine`: it's a smarter version of apt-get that handles dependencies better
