Dr_Willis
Narya: depends on what it Really is..
coz_
Narya, first right click the file go to properties
Dr_Willis
.bin means nothing. :) what is it supposed to be?
theadmin
Dr_Willis: .jpg means nothing for Linux too ;) But we're used that it reffers to image/jpeg
coz_
Narya, then the Permissions tab and tick the "Execute" box
onetinsoldier
Narya: try the following command to see what kind of file it really is.... file <file.bin>
coz_
Narya, then open a terminal...cd to that location and run ./nameof.bin
Dr_Willis
theadmin: .bin is so vague that it means nothing these days. at least .runme would make sence.
Narya: what is it supposed to be?
theadmin
Dr_Willis: .bin = binary = runnable straight away
Dr_Willis
theadmin: unless its a cue. or a ROM image for a game.. or a ......

beware
i think the kernel update i did on ubuntu 10.04 recently made it incompatible with the nvidia driver
johann
I would like to mount permanently a SSH connexion but I am not sure how to proceed. Can someone help me?
coz_
beware, did you try a hard reboot = restart?
beware
after the update: yes
beware
again: no
Dr_Willis
johann: thats doable via sshfs. if you mean mount a remote box to a local directory
Narya
coz_, that's what happened
manibuntu
hello
coz_
beware, ok and is the nvidia driver one you installed via Hardware drivers
Narya
coz_, dragging it into firefox just caused to to redownload somehow...
coz_
Narya, that pastebin is empty
beware
i think so. maybe through enabling hardware acceleration in the config, but nothing manual
e01
onetinsoldier, Dr_Willis , perfect, it working now :)
Dr_Willis
johann: read up on sshfs and examples of usng it from fstab
beware
rebooted. still doesnt work
onetinsoldier
e01: cool :-) you're welcome
luckyone
hello all - anyone in here running xbmc on 10.04?
e01
next time when want kde i will install just kubuntu :D
coz_
Narya, did you open firefox go to "Tools" then "Addons" and search for that plugin on their site?
ryan__
mezen, I have a HP Pavillion TX2530ea Tablet PC.
theadmin
Narya: If Firefox tries to download the .xpi file instead of installing - it's a broken addon
niko-mojo
Anyone know how to get around this "Cannot join channel (+r) - you need to be identified with services" ? I'm a little confused with IRC
onetinsoldier
e01: roger. i have kbuntu installed in separate partition here just in case i want to run it ;)
kubuntu*
Narya
theadmin, coz_ It looks like it installed even though it didnt look like it would
luckyone
I am having some issues getting xbmc to use my libvdpau1 package from the nvidia ppa
SmarttViking
Hi all, i am running a computer with 4gb ddr3 ram, and a dual core 2.33ghz prosessor, 64bit or 32bit OS?
coz_
Narya, ok in that pastebin I see you used "run" no need just type ./AdbeRd and hit the tab button to complete the name
drizzt_
what exactly is in my /usr/src folder? can I remove it?
ryan__
BluesKaj: I removed pulseaudio from synaptic and i'm still getting it.
DJones
niko-mojo: It means that you need to have registered your nick with freenode and be logged in with that account
beware
when i startx (i don't use gdm/kdm) i get "failed to load the NVIDIA kernel module", etc
DJones
!register | niko-mojo
ubottu
niko-mojo: Information about registering your nickname: http://freenode.net/faq.shtml#userregistration - Type « /nick <nickname> » to select your nickname. Registration help available in #freenode
onetinsoldier
drizzt_: don't remove /usr/src
drizzt_
onetinsoldier, why?
beware
doing it this way has always worked before, including earlier on in 10.04, until now
onetinsoldier
drizzt_: maybe you could, but i wouldn't recommend it.
drizzt_
so you don;t know and still give advices? wonderful
manibuntu
anyone here use mdadm with raid 1 plz ?
niko-mojo
ubotto - but I logged onto pidgin using niko-mojo@irc.ubuntu.com
onetinsoldier
drizzt_: nope.. don't think you'd want to remove that dir. stuff does get installed there by default!
coz_
Narya, so I assume this .bin is on the desktop so open terminal type cd Desktop then type ./Ad hit tab to complete name and then hit enter
Narya
coz_ somehow it was already installed even though firefox said it wasnt
SmarttViking
Hi all, i am running a computer with 4gb ddr3 ram, and a dual core 2.33ghz prosessor, should i use 64bit or 32 but Ubuntu? I don't use 16bit software to my knowledge.
onetinsoldier
drizzt_: by default... i have in /usr/src --> fglrx-8.723.1 linux-headers-2.6.32-22 linux-headers-2.6.32-22-generic linux-source-2.6.32.tar.bz2
Narya
coz_, started up firefox again and there it was
coz_
Narya, mm that's interesting
Narya
coz_, I agree
onetinsoldier
ok, perhaps the linux-source-2.6.32.tar.bz2 isn't 'default'.. but the rest is!
coz_
Narya, ok I would guess the best way to install firefox plugins is through the Tools/addons menu
beware
is there an official easy way to update nvidia drivers from the console so as to make them match the kernel again?
Narya
coz_, I guess so
coz_
Narya, go to their site and search for the plugins you want and they install from there
:)
theadmin
SmarttViking: What OS are you currently on?
niko-mojo
ubottu - oops - it says name is in use
Narya
coz_, ok Ill do that from now :) thanks
ubottu
Error: I am only a bot, please don't think I'm intelligent :)
Narya
niko-mojo, ubottu is a bot lul
coz_
Narya, no problem...
SmarttViking
theadmin, I use ubuntu 10.04
theadmin, 32 bit
DJones
niko-mojo: ubottu is a bot, if you need help registering, you should join #freenode and they'll be able to help you with registering and logging into the account so you can join the channel you were trying to get into
ManDay
I press ^ and a and I get ^a - does Ubtuntu not support UTF-8 =!
onetinsoldier
drizzt_: you want to brutally rip out your kernel headers installation(if you have them installed) from /usr/src, go right ahead then
theadmin
SmarttViking: Uh. Well if it works... However for >3 GB ram it's better to run 64-bit systems.
mezen
ryan__, in System -> Preferences -> Sound -> Hardware tab, set Profile to Analog Stereo Duplex
theadmin
ManDay: Ubuntu uses UTF-8 by default :/
ManDay
can i not expect from a contemporary OS to take into account composing chars as COMPOSING?!
greezmunkey
SmarttViking: run this to find your *exact* cpu: cat /proc/cpuinfo | grep -e "cpu" -e "model"
ManDay
theadmin, well then why does it not compose?
niko-mojo
Naraya - Djones - thx, think my name is in use by someone else.
theadmin
ManDay: Compose... I dunno what that even is, sorry
SmarttViking
theadmin, ok think you i will install 64 bit, i have never tried that before. :)
drizzt_
ManDay, you need keyboard layout with dead keys or set up composing key
ManDay
drizzt_, WITH dead keys?!
bsmith093
what is composding key, like music composing
ManDay
i want NEITHER dead keys NOR not working composing chars
SmarttViking
greezmunkey, I'm sorry i am not at that PC now. :)
ManDay
i want it to work ... just like on windows
yes... i just said that
and NO, im not going to install windows "then"
drizzt_
ManDay, only Word use composing this way
theadmin
ManDay: Uhm. I type "^a" and I get "^a" on Windows.
greezmunkey
SmarttViking: make it king of hard to run then, huh.
mezen
ryan__, if it does'nt work, type "gksudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf" then add this line at the end of the file: "options snd-hda-intel model=auto" without "" and reboot
wildc4rd
afternoon all!
ManDay
theadmin, thats because you are a freak
j/k :P
drizzt_
ManDay, still, you need keyboard layout with dead keys
creat0r
anybody knows how the bandwidth monitoring tools work????
mickster04
creat0r: magic
ManDay

bsmith093
pm
greezmunkey
ne7work: what are you trying to do?
ManDay
drizzt_, well if by "dead" you mean that i can only type a ^ through ^<space> then that is ok
drizzt_
ManDay, if you can do yhis on Windows, you're using dead key layout, 'like US International'
ManDay, that's what dead key mean
ManDay
drizzt_, i thought dead keys means i can aswell pick them off my keyboard
drizzt_
theadmin, on plain US keyboard, yes
theadmin
drizzt_: Is not a US keyboard :P A russian one
AbuBadr
i have 4 GB RAM but in system i can see only 2.2 GiB !!!
coz_
AbuBadr, is this a 64 bit system or 32 bit?
theadmin
drizzt_: But it's a typical QWERTY with buncha russian letters apart from english ones, just have to switch the layout :D
coz_
AbuBadr, open a terminal and run uname -m
AbuBadr
i got i686
is that 32 bit?
coz_
AbuBadr, ok that is a 32 bit ubuntu you have installed
mezen
AbuBadr, if it is a 32bits system, you have to installe a PAE kernel to see all your 4GB RAM
AbuBadr
i c
how to do so?
theadmin
I have a weird issue: Same machine, Karmic and Lucid... on Karmic lshw lists 380 MB ram, on Lucid 512... ?!
rallias
How do i have my computer connected to multiple networks (IE an encrypted wifi network and an ethernet localhost network)
coz_
AbuBadr, however your actual hardware may be 64 bit in which case you can either do what mezen suggested or reinstall with the 64 bit ubuntu cd what cpu do you have on that system?
beware
ok, it can't find a package linux-restricted-modules for my running kernel version (2.6.31.20-generic), i'm going to try to boot an earlier kernel
avsu
Is lm-sensors application installed on Lucid Lynks by default?

AbuBadr

Segura
Hii! I have some issues with my conky file... I'm trying to load 2 conky config, the first load a "background" image and some information, the second load more info. But the image covers that second config.. Anyone know how do it properly?
(sry for my english)
theadmin
beware: !?
greezmunkey
AbuBadr: in a terminal: cat /proc/cpuinfo | grep -e "cpu" -e "model"
avsu
theadmin: ok thanks!
coz_
AbuBadr, when you talk to someone here .. it is best to type the first couple letters of their name and hit the "tab" key to complete it so they can be allerted :)
beware
theadmin: xkcd is a web comic with a geeky joke/comic for about *every* situation a geek may encounter

AbuBadr

theadmin: i can't get into graphics mode and it looks very messy
nvidia driver won't load after a kernel upgrade. no restricted-modules for my kernel version
coz_
AbuBadr, yep thats how you alert someone :)
beware
mind you, a kernel upgrade thats part of the automatic process. it should just have worked
beegee

beegee
theadmin:i did but no luck.. isohybrid: command not found
carael

?
rallias
greezmunkey: no one wifi connection and one ethernet connection that the computer acts as a pseudo dns server on the eth0 port
drizzt_
carael, sudo apt-get update
niko-mojo
test
theadmin
beegee: Well, "apt-cache search isohybrid | less" might give something
carael
