  1. [ubuntu] Unity side rail half screen maximize does not work

    I like the ability to quickly tell one of my windows to take up half the screen, either on the left or the right. Top or bottom is nice too but not as nice as left or right.

    Here is the problem. When I run

    [ubuntu] Re: Recent Upgrade locks GUI

    So I think if I could roll back the kernel install I might be able to recover this system. However I do not know how to tell apt-get to remove one version of the package and install the other...

  8. [ubuntu] Re: Ubuntu Install hangs when setting up encrypted partitions

    Nope, I gave up on most of what I was doing. I have a LVM system with ext3 on it. No raid at all.

    (II) Cannot locate a core keyboard device.
    (II) The server relies on HAL to provide the list of input devices.

    I have not, considering that the vesa driver did not work I did not consider it to be a graphics card driver problem.

    However it does not hurt to try. I reinstalled the radion drivers and no go...

  15. [ubuntu] Upgrade to software raid1 + xfs hangs during boot

    I have a linux box with 2 200GB sata drives. I want to set up software raid1 since I do not think I will use over 200GB. I also was reading about the xfs filesystem and decided I wanted to give it...
  16. [ubuntu] Re: Ubuntu Install hangs when setting up encrypted partitions

    At this point I am hopelessly stuck. For some reason the system thinks I have a degenerated raid1 on a UUID that I can not find on my system. I wrote zero's across the entire /dev/sdb harddrive (dd...
  17. [ubuntu] Re: Ubuntu Install hangs when setting up encrypted partitions

    At this point I am starting to outstrip my linux abilities.

    At this point I have an installed Ubuntu system on /dev/sda like so

    /dev/sda2 8 GB swap
    /dev/sda3 ~ GB /

  18. [ubuntu] Re: Ubuntu Install hangs when setting up encrypted partitions

    Another bug/missing feature in the installer.

    If you have two disk, say /dev/sda and /dev/sdb. Then the installer can install when you partition them like so

    sda1 ext3 /boot
    sda2 swap
    sda3...
  19. [ubuntu] Re: Ubuntu Install hangs when setting up encrypted partitions

    So my next step one, I see a whole bundle of guides setting up software raid using the installer, but they do not have a /boot partition and they are not using xfs. So I will try that once or twice...
  20. [ubuntu] Re: Ubuntu Install hangs when setting up encrypted partitions

    So at this point I decided to set up Software Raid only during the install and incrementally turn on encryption later. I have read some guides that do that.

    So reboot, same three partitions on...
  21. [ubuntu] Re: Ubuntu Install hangs when setting up encrypted partitions

    So once the installer installed the base system without a swap it offered me the chance to install LILO. LILO? isn't it this funky old arcane thing...? Being still stubborn at this time I went...

  24. [ubuntu] Re: Ubuntu Install hangs when setting up encrypted partitions

    One thing I learned do not try mdadm or lvm2 on Knoppix. Knoppix seems to grab the devices for non-exclusive permissions (my guess). Hence even when you telinit down to 1 mdadam and pvcreate fail...
  25. [ubuntu] Re: Ubuntu Install hangs when setting up encrypted partitions

    Opps typo "I use md1 as an LVM for encryption. I set the keydepth to 128 and use a password as the encryption key."

    md1 should be md2
