  1. [ubuntu] Re: Where Do I Find and Install Graphics Card Drivers?

    Ah, you're right. I missed the fact that 12.04 has Xorg 7.6 and the driver from the AMD page only supports up to 7.4...
    Well, that explains why it wasn't in the Additional Driver section.
  2. [ubuntu] Re: Where Do I Find and Install Graphics Card Drivers?

    According to Wikipedia, the RS690 chipset belongs to the Radeon Xpress 1200 series. And according to AMD, those have been moved to legacy support. See...
  3. Re: Help!!! im getting annoyed here, and actually thinking of re-installing windows

    Actually, another thought occurred to me. You can simply use the UUID's to mount the desired hard disk. It's what Ubuntu uses by default in /etc/fstab anyway. See here for an more details:...
  4. Re: Help!!! im getting annoyed here, and actually thinking of re-installing windows

    For your first question, you can use something like this:

    OSDRIVE=`mount|grep "on / "|cut -d' ' -f1`
    That will set the variable OSDRIVE to "/dev/sda1". You can then use that in if-statements if...

    [ubuntu] Re: Can't access some websites

    Have you check the logs to see if there are any clues there? There should be some information regarding ppp in /var/log/syslog. Any errors or warnings in there?

    Re: boot issues 12.04 LTS

    Boot logs are stored in /var/log. The ones of interest would be dmesg.0, which should the boot process for the previous boot and syslog, which is a log of almost everything that went on. Hopefully...
  7. [ubuntu] Re: I can't control my Netbook's brightness using terminal

    In addition to the parameter "acpi_backlight=vendor", could you also add "acpi_osi=Linux"? (without the quotes)

    Also, what does this say?

    cat /sys/class/backlight/intel_backlight/brightness
  8. [lubuntu] Re: Installing lubuntu in an Acer Chromebook

    The answer is a cautious yes. It appears quite involved to get another OS on the Chromebook. See this guide by Ars Technica:...
  9. [SOLVED] Re: Kernel panic on boot: run-init: /sbin/init: No such file or directory

    Glad you got it working again! You might still want to consider the symlinking I mentioned above rather than copying the file from the live-CD. Otherwise future updates might fail and possibly...

    [ubuntu_studio] Re: Ubuntu to WinXP with SAMBA?

    You only need the samba server if you want to share folders from the Ubuntu machine to the Windows machine. You seem to want the reverse though. To access files that are on the Windows XP machine,...

    [ubuntu] Re: syslog-ng config

    That's not quite right. /etc/syslog-ng/syslog-ng.conf is a text file. It's not an executable. So you need to type

    sudo nano -w /etc/syslog-ng/syslog-ng.conf
    (Or use vi instead of nano or whatever...
  12. [SOLVED] Re: Kernel panic on boot: run-init: /sbin/init: No such file or directory

    Oh, that's odd. I must be forgetting something about the syntax for chroot.
    In any case, I think you may be on to something. This is the output off ldd on my Kubuntu 13.04 64-bit:

  13. [SOLVED] Re: Kernel panic on boot: run-init: /sbin/init: No such file or directory

    Heh, I did read the entire post, but "Ubuntu system files" was a bit generic, so I thought I would ask specifically. :)
    Anyway, another possibility is that one of the libraries that init depends on...

    [ubuntu] Re: nfs issues at login

    You could try pressing <Ctrl> + <Alt> + 1 from the login screen to get to a terminal. If you try to login then as a normal user, it might actually show you some error messages you could use. Also,...
  15. [SOLVED] Re: Kernel panic on boot: run-init: /sbin/init: No such file or directory

    This may be a silly question, but when you mount the Ubuntu partition, does sbin/init exist? init is the number one process that starts everything else. If that's missing, then your system will not...
  16. Re: Cannot install updates, the Package system is broken?

    Well, reinstalling would most definitely work. But you said this happened on a system that you installed only hours ago?
    Could you open a terminal and type

    sudo apt-get update
    Does it report...
  17. [ubuntu] Re: How to customize terminal prompt for temporarily

    You can change the environment variable PS1. If you type

    echo $PS1
    then you'll see what it is now. It contains lots of cryptic codes, but they are explained here for example:...

    Re: How to re-partition Ubuntu

    If you boot from the live-CD, you can indeed change your partitions using GParted. The Windows partition will be of the type NTFS, while the Ubuntu partition will be of the type ext4. Be sure to back...

    [ubuntu] Re: 13.04 Random Freeze

    It might be related to this(from Wikipedia):

    13.04 uses the graphics card quite a bit more intensively (depending on your windows manager) and could cause these problems to pop up.

  21. Re: 'Non system disk or disk error. Replace and strike any key when ready'

    I don't exactly know how fast the hp mini 5101 netbook is. If it's rather old, you might want to use one of the lighter Ubuntu variants, like Lubuntu of Xubuntu. Otherwise you should be fine with the...

    Re: Minecraft Run Error

    It sounds like the video drivers aren't loaded correctly. What graphics card do you use?
    If it's an NVidia card, does this thread help you?

    That does sound like the hard drive has given up on you...

    You can only download the iso. Putting that on the sd card won't let you boot it. You need a special program to write the iso to the sd...
  24. Re: Need help with installing "libfreetype" dependencies for LoL

    Oh, hmm, it does say on the top of the guide:

    Do you have a 64-bit install? If so, you should probably follow the Ubuntu-specific guide they mention. It seems pretty complicated to me though.
  25. Re: Need help with installing "libfreetype" dependencies for LoL

    Ah, it's because the script is looking for that library in a rather dumb way. It expects the library to be in /usr/lib, but that's not where Ubuntu put is. Open the script in...
