  2. [ubuntu] Re: What are these errors? pci_enable_pcie_error_reporting and NVRM: RmInitAdapter

    It's a single boot to Ubuntu and worked well for a long while but I think I've stressed it playing Urban Terror!

    I've just found code

  3. [SOLVED] Re: access files on external ubuntu installation

    Have you tried logging in as superuser in the Live CD terminal? It's been a while since I tried but I think it's possible, though it allows that without password needed.

    So [sudo -i] will give you...
  4. [ubuntu] What are these errors? pci_enable_pcie_error_reporting and NVRM: RmInitAdapter

    I'm struggling with a Dell Inspiron 530 running Karmic that's showing odd but consistent graphics problems.

  5. [ubuntu] Re: Truecrypt problems: "Deleted stale lock file"; "truecrypt is already running"

    If it's to be trusted, then it's not unreasonable to expect the default behaviour is safe. So, unmount by system shutdown shouldn't be an issue.

    Upgrade to 10.4 appears to fix this.
  7. [ubuntu] Re: Truecrypt problems: "Deleted stale lock file"; "truecrypt is already running"

    I came at it a few days ago from the opposite direction, it was unticked and I wondered if it mattered. I've been using it a long while in the same way.

    I suspect the talk of auto-dismount is just...

  9. [SOLVED] Grab local copy of packages to save downloading twice?

  10. [SOLVED] Re: Where are Apache and MySql made to start at boot?

    This problem just appeared on my laptop too.

    The only change was a security upgrade to

    How that upgrade has affected localhost access and...
  11. [SOLVED] Re: Where are Apache and MySql made to start at boot?

  13. [SOLVED] Re: Where are Apache and MySql made to start at boot?

    Adding to /etc/rc.local didn't work!?

    That was a surprise, as I thought it would be essentially the same as...

    [ubuntu] Re: Boot up stops before sign in screen

    Try booting into Recovery of the latest version.. from memory it's pressing Escape while grub is counting down at the start. From the little I know, that seems to be a grab of the last good boot.

    Maybe it's a deamon mysql rather than a true server then..

    Eitherway, using

  17. [SOLVED] Where are Apache and MySql made to start at boot?

    [ubuntu] Re: NVIDA Driver issue
