Subject:¬*Both cable and wifi active?
Hi guys,

Why lately, when I connect my network cable, gets IP, then my wireless

becomes active, and gets IP too?

So, now my notebook has 2 IPs, one from cable, one from wireless. I

can browse the network, and internet alright, though. Strange.

Anyone has got any clue to remedy it?

Thank you.

By "remedy it" do you want the internet to not work when you get 2 IPs ? :-) (JK)

I have also encountered the same situation. This results in there being 2 default gateway routes on your system.


You can verify this with "route -n"

I have observed that whichever is the latest route added, is the one used by the system and the former one is rendered useless.

In your case, it seems that both your routes are valid to get your system connected to the WAN side and hence you were able to


surf the internet.

If you want to "remedy" this, you need to delete one of the default routes.

Umm, HP drivers are all open source, and therefore, already included

with Ubuntu out of the box. ¬*You should be able to just go to add

printers dialog and choose your hp from the list. ¬*(Actually, though I

don't have a similar model to test, assuming the printer is plugged in,

Ubuntu should just find it and choose it from the list for you)

This printer should work "mostly". Can you try the foo2zjs printer

driver as recommended by the OpenPrinting database?

sudo apt-get install foo2zjs.



The home page[1] advises not to use any distro packages but to get the source from the site and compile yourself. I say try Ubuntu's package first. If it doesn't work you can always 'sudo apt-get remove foo2zjs', and then follow the instructions from the site.

Subject:¬*rsync backup size
I run rsync with the command:



sudo rsync -vaHz --exclude '/proc' --exclude '/sys' --exclude '/media' / /media/disk



to back up to a usb hard drive that already had a full backup on it.



According to the man page, rsync uses a "delta-transfer algorithm, which reduces the amount of data sent over the network by sending ¬*only ¬*the differences between the source files and the existing files in the destination." This appears to happen with no special command option. The summary at the end of the process is:




sent 134629383 bytes ¬*received 30327 bytes ¬*2225780.33 bytes/sec

total size is 5635940395 ¬*speedup is 41.85



The total size agrees with the output from "du -ach /". The questions

that arise are



1. Does the total size in the summary relate to the source or the target? If it's the target, it means there was no compression.



2. Running "du -ach /media/disk" showed ~8 Gb (the backup is the only thing on the disk). Running "du -ach /" (with the usb disk removed) showed ~6 Gb. Why is the backup larger than the system, especially since I invoked the z option and was careful to exclude /media?

Hmm, I'm going to over-complicate this with a small can of worms...



I see that the print-manager suggests foo2zjs when you select this

printer from the list. ¬*However, according to the HP Open source

project, the 1005 has been supported by hplip since version 2.7.2.

(Hardy comes with version 2.8.2)



Should the print manager/foomatic be updated to change the recommended

driver?

No - and if you ask questions like this, I guarantee you won't get answers
at all.

There's no question here.

Responding to "ubuntu-users Digest, Vol 54, Issue 186" provides no help at
all to those of us who don't get the digest (and not much help to those who
do).

Digests are handy for those who just want to lurk, and to those with decent
mail software who know how to properly use them, but _please_ don't expect
help if you post here in response to an entire digest. If you want to ask
questions and receive answers, please set your mailing list options to not
use digests.
