Dr_Willis: you are smarterbot
ae86-drifter
ikonia, sure well on two occasions it failed for me and both occasions i had to clean install over again
vu1kan
vodll click buddies>join a chat and select Yahoo from the drop down list, either type the room name or click 'room list'
ikonia
ae86-drifter: ok - so you're personal experiences have not worked out, so please don't say "do a clean install" as the upgrade works for thousands of people
ae86-drifter
ubuntu upgrades it is not very robust in my opinion
slow-motion
bbl
Dr_Willis
ive found upgrades in most OS's to not be very robust.
vodll
vu1kan thanks:) one more, i created an irc account, now how do i paralell connect them? [i'm using xchat right now for irc]
ikonia
ae86-drifter: thousands of people would disagree, it can have problems if you are not %100 in line with requirements
ae86-drifter
should probably ==> "do a clean install"... thats not what i said ikonia
vu1kan
vodll not sure i understand what you mean
ae86-drifter
i am just sharing my experience to benefit others
ikonia
ae86-drifter: that's exactly what you said
bastid_raZor
vodll: ask in #freenode ..they have all the answers
vodll
vu1kan how do you connect to irc with pidgin? i created the irc account and then?
ikonia
ae86-drifter: no - you are not saying "I've had 2 failures" you're saying you'd be better off doing a clean install as fact, based on you having to experiences
ae86-drifter
i said probably
slacker-
ahh.. If a RAID partitioning scheme is used during installation the grub boot loader will only be installed on the first hard drive instead of all the drives. Booting the system if the first drive has failed will not work. As a workaround users can manually install grub to each disk in the array using the grub-install command
ikonia
ae86-drifter: probably doesn't make it any better
vu1kan
vodll...oh...same as the procedure for joining a yahoo room
ae86-drifter
in your eyes
slacker-
so they actually recommend installing it on both drives
ae86-drifter
ur a di*k

bastid_raZor
Iraqi: do what ikonia said to inpxfx
Dr_Willis
loopidity: whats your video card?
ikonia
bastid_raZor: ahh, well spotted, thank you
loopidity
Dr_Willis to be frank i dont yet know
inpxfx
if ubuntu is loading and never starts up off the live cd theres a good chance its corrupt / video card old / u need to do a cold boot
matt__

loopidity
Dr_Willis I got this computer off an old lady who asked me PLEASE put ubuntu on it
jammin79
hi all
inpxfx
that happend to me a few times with an old laptop
loopidity
and then I try to boot off the live cd...
bastid_raZor
ikonia: its the simple things in life :)
matt__
think i jus caught someone suggesting clean install rather than upgrade
loopidity
its an old laptop though, looks like german laptop
ae86-drifter
ikonia, do you think the upgrade is fairly robust? what could possibly cause it to go wrong? I am sick of every time a new release comes out it fails for me, and i need to clean install again.
IdleOne
loopidity: lspci | grep VGA
jammin79

jammin79, a cool little tool you can use to prevent flooding: sudo apt-get install pastebinit (then when someone tells you to post your outputs...) uname -r | pastebinit
inpxfx
if its corrupt itll give u errors
jammin79
that's the output from uname -a
SlidingHorn

Adola
Hi! Is there a way to see how much bandwith each application is using?
network bandwith.
ikonia
Adola: look at ntop maybe
cntrational
how long does it take for rsync to copy files
loopidity
against which file should the md5sum be done? iso?
ikonia
cntrational: depends on a lot of things, impossible to say
Iraqi
ikonia: is says: bluesniff-0.1.tar.gz: POSIX tar archive
ikonia
Iraqi: tar xvf bluesniff-0.1.tar.gz
Iraqi
ikonia: Thank you...Wait...
Dr_Willis
this is when i normally suggest the 'unp' command. :)
!info unp
ubottu
unp (source: unp): unpack (almost) everything with one command. In component universe, is optional. Version 1.0.15 (lucid), package size 10 kB, installed size 76 kB
Iraqi
ikonia: Is done.. Then?
ikonia
Iraqi: go into the directory and read the README and INSTALL files
cntrational
ikonia: well, trying to copy a 20.6 GB /home to a new partition, how long do you estimate that it'll take?
aurilliance
I"m trying to install the gnome2-global-menu package from the apt line deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/globalmenu-team/ppa/ubuntu lucid main, but apt-get stalls when it gets to http://ppa.launchpad.net
anyone have any suggestions?
ikonia
cntrational: as I've just said, depends on a lot of things, impossible to say
bastid_raZor
Dr_Willis: i actually have a script 'uncprs' that does just that.
cntrational
oh <.<
Iraqi

IdleOne
cntrational: several hours at least
cntrational
IdleOne: ouch
Dr_Willis
aurilliance: theres been some server issues the alst few days.. but ive not noticed any today.
IdleOne
cntrational: like ikonia said, depends on many factors so it is impossible to say exactly
