    [ubuntu] Re: Perhaps a sticky?

    Would be a good idea - pass this along to someone to work on. I'm not actually going to be involved anymore.
  2. Re: I think my terminal is broken...or my brain is.

    Ooppsss - didn't actually realize that.


    also nice to know. Seems the same problems I ran into in the programming talk forum still exists.
  3. [ubuntu] Re: installed Ubuntu and now can't access Windows.

    Hummmmmm......this wouldn't by chance be on an Intel based MAC would it?

    OR.....did you convert the disk to a dynamic disk in Windows?
  4. [SOLVED] Re: AAAAAAAUGH! Had to reinstall the whole caboodle and stuck

    I'll remember that myself!

    Thanks!
    Dave ;)
  5. Re: I think my terminal is broken...or my brain is.

    Yea, using c++. I was just trying to find a way using the original system call idea the OP had. No arguements from me!

    [ubuntu] Re: Perhaps a sticky?

    Thanks Sandyd! I'l let one of the other people handle this. I've just been back a couple of days and again in some of the threads where I've I've been trying help the OP wants to argue again. ...
  7. [xubuntu] Re: I cant hibernate; "Failed to hibernate session" (Xubuntu 12.04LTS )

    Done arguing - been there, done that, the reason I dropped my ubuntu member status (you don't just get that, you have to EARN it). If you already know better, then don't ask. And btw - hibernation...
  8. Re: I think my terminal is broken...or my brain is.

    Hummmmm - bash shell? I'll have to try somethings here. That may be why the define was there that I mentioned - you could change just that one define if the action had a different name in a...
  9. [SOLVED] Re: AAAAAAAUGH! Had to reinstall the whole caboodle and stuck

    oooooooooo, so if the wasn't why you got divorced, it must have been bad! ;)
  10. [SOLVED] Re: AAAAAAAUGH! Had to reinstall the whole caboodle and stuck

    Very true. I'm just thinking about the reinstalling issue, or for that matter, installing a new release and having problems. Your data is still safe - it's just the OS itself you'd be messing with....

    [ubuntu] Re: Perhaps a sticky?

    Except for the transfer, it pretty much does that if you just copy and paste the line. However, I also have thought about finding ways to automate this. If some of you want to toss around ideas, I...

    [ubuntu] Re: Perhaps a sticky?

    I think everything it requires being done manually is covered in the script, so perhaps I should contact someone about that thread and offer it there. Thanks!
  13. Re: I think my terminal is broken...or my brain is.

    BTW - I *think* the system("pause") is still valid in Linux, but I would have to double-check. I seem to remember people defining a "wait_for_user" as "system("pause")" and then just using...
  14. [xubuntu] Re: I cant hibernate; "Failed to hibernate session" (Xubuntu 12.04LTS )

    It's not a matter of how much swap is used when you're running - it's a matter of what is needed to hibernate. Make it 2 times the size of your physical memory and a couple of K bytes extra for...
  15. [ubuntu] Re: Wiki or similar entitled, "if install fails"

    +1 on needing a lot more detail for your particular problem. As far as a sticky goes, it's a good sounding idea, but.....I'm afraid there are just so many things that could cause an install to fail...
  16. [SOLVED] Re: AAAAAAAUGH! Had to reinstall the whole caboodle and stuck

    Too late for your old data, but something to keep in mind for future problems:

    besides a system (mounted as "/") partition and a swap partition, set up a separate partition and select it to mount...

    [ubuntu] Perhaps a sticky?

    I have a suggestion for a sticky that might be worth while.

    In debugging network problems, be they wireless or whatever else, there has always been a given set of commands we ask the user to post...
  18. Re: I think my terminal is broken...or my brain is.

    No, it's a completely different idea between the 2 - different ways of doing things to develop the GUI. See GTK or QT for examples of things you can use that are also available for Windows. I've...

    BTW - if this works for you please post back so we can make the change permanent. If not you'll lose the wireless each time you boot. Just trying to go a step at a time - get it working, then make...

    [SOLVED] Re: Back with the most annoying of questions!

    Thanks for that!!! I know I've used that before but just can't remember anything anymore (I think the 60's and 70's are catching up with me ;) ).

    Have a good one, coffeecat, and thanks again!

    [ubuntu] Re: Lovefilm/netflicks confusion

    I would hope not, and here's why: Adobe has stated no more changes, etc., to flash for linux - they just aren't going to support it anymore. So, I would strongly suggest finding a package that...
  24. [xubuntu] Re: I cant hibernate; "Failed to hibernate session" (Xubuntu 12.04LTS )

    How much memory is in your PC? When you installed Ubuntu, did you take the default size for swap? If so, you'll need your swap to be 2 times the size of your physical memory + a small amount of...

    Look at your error message file - what's up top? Problems with your comments, hence the error message with "This". Try removing your comments and see what happens.
