  1. [ubuntu] Re: BIOS Read full 512MB but Ubuntu/Windows/Memtest86 Reads different

    Old BIOS might be allocating shared video memory.
  2. [gnome] Re: WIreless keyboard and mouse compatibility

    Please refer to an actual bug, I've installed 11.10 across quite a few PCs and HID enumeration has not been an issue yet.

    [ubuntu] Re: PC is not waking up from hibernating

    This might be your issue, video driver is erroring out on wake. Now at least you know where the error is likely coming from. I'm tied up now but I'll try and look into this, but hopefully a smart...

    [ubuntu] Re: Cant install ubuntu 11.10 on my HP DV2 PLEASE HELP!!!!

    I'm going to disagree with all the assessments saying go back to an older version, I've installed 11.10 across a lot of hardware and it's more compatible than any prior version. Let's stay focused on...

    [ubuntu] Re: Itunes

    Iknow, that's why I said make the purchase on another computer and copy them over, the newer iTMS files have no DRM so they work on just about everything as long as you have an AAC codec installed,...
  7. [ubuntu] Re: Random system lockup - help for a newbie please

    Outside of it not mounting a USB device (from bluez, so probably BlueTooth related, think I've seen that before) nothing leaps out. Can you post the output from lsusb. Thanks.
  8. [gnome] Re: WIreless keyboard and mouse compatibility

    These should show up as at least basic HID devices, can you give us the output from "dmeg | tail -30" so we can see what's being detected? Thanks.

    [ubuntu] Re: Update my android phone under Ubuntu?

    What you want can be initiated from the phone, you don't need Kies, which from past experience is quite awful when it does decide to work.

    [ubuntu] Re: Update my android phone under Ubuntu?

    Most updates are available OTA (Over the Air) and you can ignore Kies. If you some specific update that is not OTA you can mount the phone in USB mass storage mode, copy the file to your SD card and...
  11. [gnome] Re: WIreless keyboard and mouse compatibility

    Are you sure it needs an additional driver, most mice and keyboards 'just work' in Linux, often time specialty function keys do as well. Did you try to run without it or just assumed you needed...
  12. [ubuntu] Re: 11.10 Installation hangs at the account pic

    Is it a laptop with built in webcam? Or a desktop? If it's a built in can you turn it off in BIOS? Or disconnect if external, then at least you can rule it out.

  14. [ubuntu] Re: Boot Issue after Installing Wireless keyboard mouse combo

    Glad it worked, technically we should clean it up and either remove those partitions or set them to noauto so they don't try to mount on boot, but for now at the least the main part of your issue is...
  15. [ubuntu] Re: Boot Issue after Installing Wireless keyboard mouse combo

    If it's not ready at boot it might not be mounted now, but at some point an NTFS device was mounted on your PC as /dev/sdg1. If you are sure you don't need it for any reason, comment out that line in...
  16. [ubuntu] Re: Boot Issue after Installing Wireless keyboard mouse combo

    So /dev/sdg1 is an ntfs volume, so are you dual booting? Have an external drive you plug in that is NTFS formatted? Or mapping a drive from another machine (least likely since these are usually CIFS...

    [ubuntu] Re: Itunes

    You can always make your puchase from another computer then copy them over to your Ubuntu system, avoiding the awfulness that is iTunes on your system. The new non-DRM AAC files iTunes provides work...
  18. [ubuntu] Re: Boot Issue after Installing Wireless keyboard mouse combo

    It might be purely coincidence that you installed the mouse/keyboard combo and got this error, stuff like thumb drives and SD cards get mounted to /media, and /media/sdg1 certainly fits that concept....

  20. [ubuntu] Re: Reboot and select proper boot device or insert boot media in selected boot device

    Do you have a newer PC, like very recent? Many newer PCs are shipping with UEFI firmware in place of traditional BIOS and you may need to take a couple extra steps. My Acer X1930 ships with UEFI and...

    [ubuntu] Re: Cant install ubuntu 11.10 on my HP DV2 PLEASE HELP!!!!

    Well /dev/sda is generally your primary hard drive, so it's likely that the error you got in Windows was from a failing drive. If you are booting from the USB key into a live image it's probably...

    First, don't worry about USB floppy, that should not be it. The other 2 USB boot entries, one of them is likely the USB thumb drive's manufacturers device code. This should be the same data that...
