Dirty_habiT

Need a little help
japanfred
bodom, well, it is set to start on bootup, but it might be doing something dodgey!
Dirty_habiT
my thread is getting bumped down really quick and has a bunch of replies.
mickster04
dziadu: well you can compile source in ubuntu ok i think, you should be good at that right ;)
Cube``
i love 10.04

good job on it
especially the design

ubottu
Dirty_habiT: Please don't ask to ask a question, simply ask the question (all on ONE line and in the channel, so that others can read and follow it easily). If anyone knows the answer they will most likely reply. :-)
UltraParadigm
Plais Halp! My computer crashed and now wineboot says "err:process:start_wineboot failed to start wineboot, err 11" It says that even after I purged the entire package and reinstalled it. :-( tears
dziadu
mickster04: I would prefer to not compile it if teher is another option
bronson
no mater what I do, networking is "stop/waiting".
how do I find out why it's stalled out?
SauLus
mickster04: I found the problem. It was related to me having manually installed packages to /usr/lib/python2.6/dist-packages/hamster/. After removing these files the upgrade can be resumed
Cube``
how come though i cant install gears on firefox?
hechoensonora_
cual es el canal en español ?
jejej
dziadu
mickster04: I can maintain it but I don't know what about other users
Don9307
10.04 LTS is the best OS around. MS can kiss my grits.

Hello I'm having a screen problem, I can't see the lower part of the desktop, Is there any idea what happened and how to fix this problem, TY!
VCoolio

mickster04
SauLus: fantastic
Maarten
which RDP client do I need to connect to a RDP server that uses Network Level Authentication?
Appetite
In the terminal, is there a way to add support to show the ? characters as they should be?
mickster04
dziadu: well just get it up to date and leave it there? its up to you from there, but youve set it up...?
dziadu: mayb there is an apt-source?
Dirty_habiT
anybody?
Cube``
VCoolio: i believe so, it gives you the option to store google mail offline for example, on a laptop that doesnt have an internet connection 24/7. and google mail is used by what? 40 million? :)
bodom
Dirty_habiT: it's a bit complicate. First question. What's BT4? :D
dziadu
mickster04: ok, i see there is no option, well, that's why I love gentoo, it takes me 5 minutes to write new ebuild and everybody is happy :)
Cube``
bodom: backtrack 4?
Pici
!backtrack | Dirty_habiT
ubottu
Dirty_habiT: There are some Ubuntu derivatives that we cannot provide support for due to repository and software changes. Please consult their websites for more information. Examples: gNewSense (support in #gnewsense), Linux Mint (see !mintsupport), LinuxMCE (support in #linuxmce), CrunchBang (support in #crunchbang), BackTrack (support in #backtrack-linux)
Dirty_habiT
backtrack 4
Cube``
yeah
DDwi
anyone know if there is an issue with keyserver.ubuntu.com ?
liminal
alien260 i have run a forcefsck
mickster04
dziadu: mayb there is an apt-source?/
dziadu
mickster04: from other side, it is strange that nobody responsible for science in ubuntu didn't update it yet, it is hih recommended
Dirty_habiT
i don't think it's a backtrack4 specific issue.
liminal
why would my root partition disappear?
mickster04
dziadu: you could set the sources to include unstable uilds?
bodom
Dirty_habiT: second questions. Wich of these oses controls the mbr?
dhikr

UltraParadigm
Is there a channel for wine help?
Blaze__
hello is it possible to slow down compiz animations
VCoolio
flyfishing: did you recently add a panel or dock that needs compositing that don't work right?
Dirty_habiT
i believe i did.
i can do it now
Don9307
DDwi: If you looking for a key on the server, it sometimes takes a couple of tries before you can find it.
liminal
alien260 i ran this sudo touch /forcefsck
Dirty_habiT
i would prefer grub2 to be installed.
liminal
it showed nothing
BluesKaj
UltraParadigm, yeah #wine
Stereocaulon
flyfishing, what did you do before you got into this predicament?
DDwi
Don9307, never took multiple tries before? it just hangs
bodom
Dirty_habiT: Only one of them should, if every os tries to update the mbr you'll get similar issues very often
UltraParadigm
:-( oh I got kicked from that one. It said invite only
josvuk
hi, I started pppoeconf and it prints me three ethernet devices eth0 pan0 wlan0 so what is pan0?
flyfishing
downloaded my graphic driver only...it took over monitor settings...
Appetite
In the terminal, is there a way to add support to show the ? characters as they should be? i dont want to completely switch it to another locale, i want to retain the current locale, but support russian + special (áßéëåéëg®bœ) chars for example
UltraParadigm
and I don't think anyone was in there
Dirty_habiT
it's asking me if which menu.lst i want.
package maintainer's version?
Don9307
DDwi: I haven't had that happen. Just what I described.
mickster04
UltraParadigm: ?
Dirty_habiT
or keep local version currently installed?
Stereocaulon
flyfishing, could you be a little bit more specific about your graphical card and driver?
mickster04
UltraParadigm: are ou registered?
you*
VCoolio
Appetite: try another terminal, like rxvt-unicode
Dirty_habiT
btw, when i get this figured out i will post the answer in my thread so that others can be helped as well.
krabador

UltraParadigm

gpgkeys: HTTP fetch error 7: couldn't connect to host
UltraParadigm
Ok weird
mickster04
dziadu: oh, well in ubuntu there is a list of sources to get apps from.... some are hidden, like unstable, you can umcomment these linse andit will look thrugh those sources too
UltraParadigm
It let min after I Identified

VCoolio: if i am SSH'ing or am on TTY how do i support it though
Stereocaulon
flyfishing, what driver are you using? nv or nVidia restricted driver?
bmh
I have a question about this bug: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/xkeyboard-config/+bug/327963 While it appears that xkeyboard-config has been patched, the patch doesn't seem to have made its way into xkb-data
dziadu
Mikelevel: is it in sources.list?
Don9307
DDwi: What terminal command are you using?
BluesKaj
UltraParadigm, looks like that room'd ben hijacked ..i recall using it in the past without invitation
UltraParadigm

VCoolio
Appetite: don't know; change your $TERM variable? use tmux/screen?
Fandekasp_
hi
Stereocaulon
flyfishing, please answer my question completely if you can, you are using a nVidia GF 6150SE, but which driver are you using?
pjok_
Anyone any good with Wubi? I'm getting "No root file system is defined" when Ubuntu is about to install - been around on the forums for about a month now without success. Someone please awnser! -.-
Don9307
DDwi: Why don't you try gpg: --recv-keys (Key ID)
Narya
how can I make a terminal launcher start on a different workstation?
Narya
like click it on my main workstation, but it runs on the 4th one
Maarten
So... I have a 2008 R2 server I want to connect to, and its RDP is configured to use Networl Level Authenticaten. That's not changing as we've got all remaining XP stations set to use NLA, just can't connect to it yet from Ubuntu. Which client should be able to do RDP with NLA?
japanfred
bodom, as stated in the pastebin, i can still ping 192.168.1.1 (the host) from the VM, but i can't ping Google.co.uk
DDwi
Don9307, exact same thing, try it yourself gpg --keyserver hkp://keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-key 0x50A40F50
Don9307
DDwi Or try --recv-keys keyserver.Ubuntu.com (Key ID)
Fandekasp_
I've got a problem with my ssh connexion. I arrive from my client to connect to myuser@myip , but I have an error when I try to connect to myuser@mydns , starting with WARNING: POSSIBLE DNS SPOOFING DETECTED!
Stereocaulon
Narya, you could open an ssh session on the other box to your main work station
VCoolio
Narya: if you use compiz, then try the place plugin, else try devilspie
Fandekasp_
Do you know what should I do ? My ssh is working, but I have no .ssh directory in my ~/ , strange isn't it ?
flyfishing
Nvidia accelerated graphics driver (version current)
alien260
Maarten: does it not connect using RDPv6?
Narya
Stereocaulon, VCoolio: I misspoke. Its one computer, but the 4 desktop switchers. Thats what I was talking about
bodom
japanfred: staying to you pastedbin, your firewall is completely open now. You can ping 8.8.8.8?
krazykrivda
I lost the top border of all windows where you can grab, and minimize maximize etc..anyone know how I can get that back?
VCoolio
Narya: that's what I was talking about too
Narya
Vcoolio: ok. so..what's compiz? lol I should just use the second option?
Fandekasp_
(Action) has solved his problem ... it was the client ~/.ssh/known_hosts who was fu*ked, I've cleaned it and now my connexion works
japanfred
bodom, nope, times out
hmw
Fandekasp_: try mkdir ~/.ssh
alien260
krazykrivda: are you using emerald? if so try emerald --replace
japanfred
bodom, PING 8.8.8.8 (8.8.8.8) 56(84) bytes of data.
krazykrivda
not using emerald.. not to my knowledge alien260 .. i'm in gnome..
VCoolio
Narya: compiz is the fancy window manager that you get when you set visual effects; devilspie is a small app that you can use to specify what the wm needs to do with a new window
bodom
japanfred: most probably it's a routing issue then
Maarten
alien260: The default client seems to have RDPv5 only..... hence the question, which client I should install ;)
japanfred
however, if i reboot the server, it works!
krabador
ho can i set default sound card in lucid?
nobody?
Don9307
DDwi: I just tried gpg: --recd-keys 7AE26941 and was able to import that key to my keyring in under 1 second.
Stereocaulon
krabador, you have multiple sound cards?
hmw
krazykrivda: metacity ..replace perhaps? also, try installing fusion-icon
DDwi
hm
hmw
krazykrivda: metacity --replace sorry
Fandekasp_
(Action) has solved his problem ... it was the client ~/.ssh/known_hosts who was fu*ked, I've cleaned it and now my connexion works
krabador
Stereocaulon, yes, lucid have as default the one i can't use
Narya
Vcoolio: ok so I dont think I have compiz. Ill use the second one :)
UltraParadigm
Well, I guess I'm just going to stop using wine. Only native programs
krazykrivda
hmw thank you! that worked.. any idea how/why that would have happened.. all i did was reboot
Fandekasp_
oops sorry
bodom
japanfred: is routing enabled? cat /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward
UltraParadigm
Wine keeps not working, and now is broken all together. And I can't fix it like humpty dumpty
hmw
i have no idea, I just saw "emerald --replace" and knew you have Gnome ;-)
japanfred
bodom, on the host?
krabador
Stereocaulon, with the command less /proc/asound/modules
VCoolio
Narya: install devilspie, then create a ~/.devilspie/anything.ds file in which you specify what to do with the terminal window; google for syntax
krazykrivda
haha! hmw to the rescue again
Stereocaulon
krabador, does the other soundcard register when you execute lspci? If you are not sure, please pastebin the output of that command
krabador
Stereocaulon, i can see the one i want use is the 2
Narya
Vcoolio: thank you
japanfred
bodom, on the host it is, yes
bcardarella
So I have a binary in a directory that I'm explicitly setting in .bashrc When I echo $PATH I see that directory has the highest priority but when I call the binary Ubuntu tells me that I need to install it with apt-get
What am I doing wrong?
(I don't want to install with apt-get)
MistaDizz
Where are youuuu
krabador
Stereocaulon, no problem with lspci, i look it perfectly
bedwyr
MistaDizz, connection hiccup?
japanfred
bodom, i've just set 3 rules, and default to drop, now rebooting the server
krazykrivda
Pidgin, Miranda, other.. What is recommended by useres in here?
japanfred
bodom, when saving, does it do a /etc/init.d/networking restart?
CaptainTrek
krazykrivda, for what?
bodom
japanfred: mhh... it makes no sense: they're no DROP rules on firewall
krabador
Stereocaulon, is that : Ensoniq ES1371 [AudioPCI-97] (rev 06)
gbear14275
I can't play these videos with sound and I don't know why. I have tried a couple things to get the sound working but no luck... Could someone please help me troubleshoot. http://www.apple.com/getamac/ads/
krazykrivda
CaptainTrek: genereal messneger
Stereocaulon
krabador, you can set the default card per sound server. Alsa would be a good place to start there.
krabador
Stereocaulon, but isn't the default
CaptainTrek
krazykrivda, i use pidgin, but read this:
gbear14275
on lucid, have medibuntu repos installed and the ffmpeg pacakges installed (I think)
CaptainTrek
!best > krazykrivda
ubottu
krazykrivda, please see my private message
japanfred
bodom, wait for the physical box to come back, and i'll pastebin the iptables output now, with default action of drop on incoming
krazykrivda
ha CaptainTrek i didn't ask for best.. i asked for what users in here recommend
Don9307
#quit
BluesKaj
krabador, if you have 2 soundcards , you need to set it the bios peripherals by disabling the card you don't want to use
CaptainTrek
just thought i'd mention it, krazykrivda :)
VCoolio
Narya: here you have an example to place firefox on workspace 2, you can edit that http://ubuntu-tutorials.com/2007/07/25/how-to-set-default-workspace-size-and-window-effects-in-gnome/
krazykrivda
well thank you :-)..
