    [all variants] Re: Dual Boot in G74SX-A1

    Someone may have come up with a way to load Ubuntu on NTFS formatted drives, but I certainly wouldn't do it that way, even assuming someone has (which I don't think they have, because I don't think...
  2. [ubuntu] Re: 10.04: Update this morning broke my video

    More info:

    I've googled and found a reference to this command, to make sure things were loading properly. I can't interpret the output - anyone?

  3. [ubuntu] 10.04: Update this morning broke my video

    This morning the update manager let me know I needed to run it, and I did. Now I wish I hadn't.

    I rebooted for something unrelated, and my video is broken. I can see things, but all my Compiz...

    [other] Re: Bonobo: What's the catch?

    You're in the minority then. Do a google search for Western Digital click of death and see how many results you get. About the 6th time I had to store a hard drive in the freezer to make it run long...

    [other] Bonobo: What's the catch?

    My trusty Dell (my Ubuntu machine, and the one that I carted everywhere) died finally, and I've been looking at replacement laptops. I stumbled across System76 after I googled "best ubuntu laptop"...
  6. [ubuntu] Here's a different one - find unique files?

    I can - and realize I probably will - wind up doing this manually, but figured I'd give this a shot.

    Given two directory structures is there a utility to scan through the files and give me a list...
  7. [ubuntu] 9.10 - update this morning broke all my net printers

    I get the cryptic message "", which tells me nothing.

  8. [ubuntu] Re: HD upgrade - it shouldn't be this difficult

    OK, I'll try this, and if it doesn't work, I'll try the dd command up above. I'd really prefer to avoid having to copy all my data over again, if I can.
  9. [ubuntu] HD upgrade - it shouldn't be this difficult

    My 60 GB HDD in my work laptop is uncomfortably full, so I got a 160 GB HDD to replace it. I'm running only Ubuntu 9.10, no dual-boot stuff.

    Installed new HDD in external USB carrier, plugged it...
  10. [ubuntu] Re: when booting, only "_" appears in top right corner

    Oh, yeah ^^

    The very few times that cycling the power doesn't work, unplugging the external HDD until I'm booted always works.
  11. [ubuntu] Re: when booting, only "_" appears in top right corner

    My work laptop does this two or three times a week. I've traced it down to a timing problem with my external USB drive not "waking up" when I power up the computer. I can usually hard power down and...
  12. [ubuntu] Re: (9.10 - 10.04 LTS upgrade) Cannot join active directory via Likewise Open 5.4

    I've held off updating my work computer (connected to ADS network) because I figured Likewise hadn't been tested fully yet. If you get an answer to this, I'd appreciate it if you'd update it in here....
  13. [SOLVED] Re: Remove desktop symbols for disk drives etc.?

    fstab is a file that runs to auto-mount partitions. I use it to mount network partitions on bootup for my work computer, and to mount a second hard drive in a non-standard location on my personal...
  14. [ubuntu] Re: Update Manager error, just since yesterday

    I started with 9.10 on this laptop, then upgraded to 10.04. If that's karmic and lucid, then yes. I never knowingly installed backports. The only thing I installed was the restricted stuff, to get...

  16. [ubuntu] Update Manager error, just since yesterday

    9.10 upgraded to 10.04 several weeks ago. No issues on multiple updates until yesterday.

    Some Dells use the Intel chipset for wireless, some use the Broadcom. The Intel is flawless, the Broadcom can have some issues. I've got it running on both my personal and my work Dell (Latitude) and...

    [ubuntu] Re: samba printer sharing

    You do. I found directions for it here somewhere, but I'm having trouble locating it again. The Canon support files I had to install started with "bj" - presumably for their old bubble-jet support.
