  1. [ubuntu] Re: ubuntu 12.04 installer does not recognize drive partitions

    I think we are talking at cross-purposes here. The OP is concerned that the installer wishes to install the boot loader on /dev/sda rather than a partition. But this is perfectly normal. You need to...

    [SOLVED] Re: Missing partitions

    This may sound silly, but are you sure it's referring to the same physical disc? The partition layout of a given disc shouldn't change between boots, but the assignment of devices to physical discs...

    [SOLVED] Re: Missing partitions

    My guess is that's the space the OP freed up by moving crunchbang. It can't be the "missing" partitions 2 and 3, since it's inside the extended partition 4.

    [SOLVED] Re: Missing partitions

    You probably don't have them.

    Your standard MBR partition table has 4 slots available for ("primary") partitions, but there's no law that says all of them have to be used or that they have to be...

    It means "We applied a few security patches and gave it a s00per k00l enterprisey marketing name so management will think it's better. Who cares what the techies think of it; they don't make the...

    Interesting. Compare

    int main() {

    float v = 3.14;

  8. [SOLVED] Re: What are .lib .a .h and linker settings all about?

    Yes, the preprocessor, when it encounters a #include directive, will effectively copy and paste the included file in place (which may in turn result in more files being included and pasted into the...
  9. [ubuntu] Re: "Unable to read NTFS $Bitmap: Input/output error"

    My apologies to Mark Phelps and Jeremab. It seems there was a bug in my mental model of how Windows chkdsk interacts with pending sectors. I think I prefer bugs in the software I write to ones in my...
  10. [ubuntu] Re: "Unable to read NTFS $Bitmap: Input/output error"

    A few bad sectors that the drive can remap, perhaps. We are dealing with a pending sector count in the double figures and a filesystem that won't mount. It is with difficulty that I restrain myself...
  11. [ubuntu] Re: "Unable to read NTFS $Bitmap: Input/output error"

    I think you should buy a new hard disc. 19 is not a good number of pending sectors to have. (0 is a good number of pending sectors to have. Anything else is a sign of an ailing disc. I'm not an...
  12. [ubuntu] Re: "Unable to read NTFS $Bitmap: Input/output error"

    It sounds to me as if your disc is dying. Go to Disk Utility, select the disc (which is probably your main hard drive) and go to SMART data. You are primarily interested in the "Current Pending...

    [SOLVED] Re: error: expected ; before ( token

    If I saw that error on that line of code, the first thing I would do would be to check that the definition of "u_int32_t" is visible to the compiler at that point. It looks to me as if the compiler...

    Re: Linux pre-installed

    Yes, but it was really just a matter of putting the live CD in, clicking about a bit to make sure things basically work, and choosing "install". It's a thinkpad, they're very well supported.

    [SOLVED] Re: Launching Programs that require ./

    Giving the full path to the executable should work whether or not it's in your $PATH. The only reason I can think of that it wouldn't is if the application itself assumes it's being run from the...

    [ubuntu] Re: Radio stations not playing

    What format are the files that you can play in? You will need MP3 support to play most Internet radio stations, which I believe you have to install separately due to licensing issues.

    [ubuntu] Re: Need to edit Linux files from Windows 7

    If you can get a root shell up by adding the kernel option "init=/path/to/where/bin/used/to/be/sh", you should be able to put /bin back from the command line.

  23. Re: Approach to simulate floating point numbers

    You have in fact hit upon the correct answer. Zero is a special case in IEEE floating point format (though you can treat it as a special case of denormalised numbers, when you support those).
