    [ubuntu] Re: Huge log files in /var/log problem

    This just happened to me and when I checked the log files, nm-pptp was the sole wrongdoer. It had virtually flooded the log files with junk and what seemed to be connectivity problems.

    So extremely irritating. Why the hell have they made this stupid change? Why can't I choose to remember my authorizations forever anymore?

    [ubuntu] Re: Seagate Freeagent 2

    To anyone else wondering... yes!

    It does work in 9.04 out of the box without any hazzle. You CAN format it to Ext2 (and probably other FS as well, but I think Ext2 is stable and well for a one TB...

    Actually, I didn't. If I still have problems after the reiserfsck-tool is finished, I'll try with that. Thank you.
  13. [ubuntu] Re: Need advice asap before I do something even more stupid... (disk and partitioning

    Uuuuhm... after a bit of thinking, I've realised that I have based all this on a miscalculation from my side. I forgot to divide by 60 two times, so i got minutes and converted them to days (by...

    You wouldn't happen to know how you can "rescue" a partition with testdisk?

  17. [ubuntu] Re: Need advice asap before I do something even more stupid... (disk and partitioning

  19. [ubuntu] Re: Need advice asap before I do something even more stupid... (disk and partitioning

    I hope none of them are big, because I'm on a ship right now with a very slow internet connection.
