  1. [all variants] Re: Grub Error 13: Invalid or unsupported executble format

    If I set windows to master, then I unplug the other drive, so no, I can't boot into ubuntu. If I were to switch the primary master and secondary slave, (i.e.: windows is master, ubuntu is slave) then...
  2. [all variants] Re: Grub Error 13: Invalid or unsupported executble format

    Running fixmbr with all the drives set up the way they are will break everything, since windows is on the primary slave, not the primary master. That would make the windows bootloader be placed in...
  3. [all variants] Re: Grub Error 13: Invalid or unsupported executble format

    I didn't do that because I wanted something to fall back on when it screwed up my MBR. This way, the ubuntu install is completely untouched and works fine. I thought it would be a simple matter to...
  4. [all variants] Grub Error 13: Invalid or unsupported executble format

    Alright so here's the situation: I had Ubuntu installed on my computer, and I decided to install windows XP again to play a few games that I just couldn't get working properly in wine. I'm aiming for...
  5. [ubuntu] Re: Radeon Mobility 9200 vs. Intel X3100 vs. Nvidia 7150M

    asyncronous display (using two different displays with two different resolutions) is always tricky under linux, and I know that some drivers do it better than others, but I've never set this up...

    [all variants] Re: hard disk crashed, ddrescue not successfull

    I just re-read your first post, and I noticed that you mentioned you have it plugged in to your laptop via USB. I presume this involves some sort of IDE-to-USB adaptor? Perhaps this is where the...

    Re: Lenovo Ideapad Y510 is Go (Continued / NEW)

    FYI, the /dev/cdrom and /dev/cdrw devices are just symlinks to whatever the actual cdrom device is, in this case /dev/scd0. These are usually generated automagically, since some programs use the...

    No idea why that is happening for you, but I can tell you that running that command on my laptop opens evolution, the gnome mail client, without errors. Dunno why it would be running when you plug in...
  9. [ubuntu] Re: hardy dont installs but gutsy does

    They changed the way hard drives are detected in hardy, so that could have something to do with it. IIRC, even IDE drive will show up like "sda" instead of "hda". This COULD be your problem, but it...

    [all variants] Re: hard disk crashed, ddrescue not successfull

    This might be a silly suggestion, but perhaps you're making this more complicated than it needs to be. Have you tried simply mounting the fat32 partition and reading it the normal way? Also, what...

    [xubuntu] Re: Trying to Access my XP drive

    If we could put the problem with windows not booting aside for a moment, wouldn't it be far simpler just to install xubuntu on the external drive as a self-contained unit, with it's own MBR and /boot...

    Re: Lenovo Ideapad Y510 is Go (Continued / NEW)

    As far as 64-bit goes, I don't really see much of an advantage in using it right now. I used 64-bit Ubuntu for a while, and I encountered a lot of problems with it that I wouldn't normally be getting...

    [ubuntu] Re: Intel X3100 + Maximum Resolution

    You don't want to set your resolution to either 1280*1024 or 1280*1280. If your resolution is set to 1280*800 by default, then that probably means you have a widescreen display, since that's a...
  15. [ubuntu] Re: KDE sound notifications not working in Gnome

    Don't use amarok with gnome? No seriously, amarok has a GTK+ equivalent called exaile, you could give it a try. The problem, I suspect, is that Amarok expects the KDE sound system to be in place...

    [ubuntu] Re: Skip Logon? and Virtual Box?

    Vitualbox doesn't work for games. If an OS is virtualized, that means that it doesn't have direct access to your video card, which means no 3d acceleration, which means no games. If it's a windows...

    [gnome] Re: Somewhat Unrecognized External Hard Drive

    [ubuntu] Re: HOWTO Automount in Hardy

    I fully agree. I thought it was strange when Ubuntu started using /media this way and switched to UUIDs and all that funky stuff, but here the way I look at it: I let ubuntu do it's own thing and let...

  22. [ubuntu] Re: Mounting an NTFS Hard Drive at startup

    You should be able to add it to fstab so that it automatically mounts it a boot. "fstab" is the configuration file for all your drives, and it determines what is mounted where and whatnot. It is...
