    [ubuntu] Re: List of hardware and drivers

    You are using the nvidia driver, so to determine the version you can either search synaptic for 'nvidia' and see which version is installed or run nvidia-settings which will also give you the version.

    [SOLVED] Re: should not access windows partitions!

    These are good suggestions, I think the reason I went with the rm /dev/sd* approach originally was because the OP in the older threads didn't want the drives visible at all.

    That would be your extended partition. A disk with a DOS partition table can only have 4 primary partitions, using a extended partition allows you to increase the number of partitions. The extended...

    dromichaetes I don't think that the S3 cards/drivers support using compiz/desktop effects. Intel, Nvidia and ATI are the only cards that are supported. Google can probably confirm this.

    As you can see the file system is reporting 61GB of space used, this is definitely a good sign. Now its just a matter of figuring out where the data actually is. Can you please open a terminal and do...

    [ubuntu] Re: Hex Editor (special)

    Have you tried just opening the device file for the floppy as per my first post.

    [ubuntu] Re: Hex Editor (special)

    How were you trying to write to the floppy?

    Virtualbox might not be able to access the drive because of a permissions problem depending on how it is trying to access the drive.

  18. [all variants] Re: accidentally "recycled" all files in / is it possible to restore?

    That doesn't sound promising. If you can please try and describe what you did to delete the files and everything you have done since.
  19. [all variants] Re: accidentally "recycled" all files in / is it possible to restore?
