    [ubuntu] Re: Not finding hdd in cd boot installation

    Yes, I concur with Mark Phelps -- you need to protect yourself against "inadvertencies", wrt the Windows installation.




    No problem Lukas -- just be aware that data that you accumulate on your...

    [ubuntu] Re: Not finding hdd in cd boot installation

    Very complete question -- congrats on that!

    Issues:

    1. You're not going to install Ubuntu on a partition that is formatted NTFS -- it needs a linux filesystem, and ext4 is recommended.

    [ubuntu] Re: Is this a memory issue?

    You are completely correct -- it is undoubtedly a bug in some bit of software, possibly the OS, possibly something else that is running. But it can't get fixed until it gets reported, and it can't...

    [ubuntu] Re: Is this a memory issue?

    As Cheesemill says, if you run top, after the system has been up for some hours, it should be apparent which process is hogging the memory. You won't actually observe it leaking, probably, but one...

    What, exactly, are the errors that you are seeing?

    If it boots at all (either/or hdd or USB flash drive), then if you open a terminal and run "dmesg", that is probably the first place to look for...

    Linux support for printers is shown in the database here. The Epson TM-U295 is unfortunately not listed, meaning no one has given a report on it. The TM-U220 is listed as a "paperweight". :(

    [ubuntu] Re: How to identify faulty NIC Card in Ubuntu?

    The fastest test I can think of, assuming you have a known-good Live CD (or Live USB stick) of some OS, is to boot that instead of the installed OS. Two different Live CDs would be even better. For...

    [ubuntu] Re: Recovering jfs /home

    The version of GParted in Ubuntu 12.10 is 0.12.1. On my Parted Magic USB stick, the version is 0.14.1. I do not know whether the newer version could handle that jfs error, or not. If it were me, I...

    [ubuntu] Re: Recovering jfs /home

    What operating system is on the Live USB stick? The problem has nothing to do with the OS installed on the hard drive. Also, what is the "ENCRYPTFS_xxxxxx" all about -- are we talking about an...

    [ubuntu] Re: How to execute the fsck command?

    You don't fsck the running system -- the partition has to be unmounted. Easiest method, IMHO, is to make a Parted Magic or GParted Live USB stick or CD, boot that, use the Partition Manager GUI to...

    [ubuntu] Re: mount error and other funny stuff

    Using a Parted Magic or GParted Live CD or USB stick, boot the computer and fsck the drives. Note any errors found by fsck. Then reboot the computer and post back if there are still issues.

    Re: How to add unallocated partition to ubuntu?

    You can't "add" it -- disk partitions don't work that way. Probably the fastest and easiest thing to do is this sequence:

    1. Highlight /dev/sda2, and choose "Move/Resize", and slide (move) that...

    Also look in your BIOS for "shared video RAM" -- part of your memory is given to the video system.

    This is the problem -- I have the same problem with my OCZ RevoDrive PCI-e SSD. Your BIOS does not recognize your SSD as a bootable device, so (unless there is a BIOS upgrade to fix this) you cannot...

    Right -- because "Analog Output" is a single output source.

    There's some possibly useful information here.
