<tiago> ActionParsnip: is there a way to deactivate a RAM stick, so that there is no need to remove it?
<ActionParsnip> tiago: unless your BIOS supports it, no
<ActionParsnip> tiago: some server motherboards can deactivate CPU and RAM slots so you can swap parts out
<Oer> melinate, you could try alternate cd, it is textbased
<aeon-ltd> deper29: your root isn’t /mnt it can be mounted in /mnt/ though
<Oer> !alternate
<ubottu> The Alternate CD is a classic text-mode install CD. It supports a wider range of hardware than the !LiveCD, and can also be used as an upgrade CD. http://www.ubuntu.com/download/ubuntu/alternative-download#alt<ActionParsnip> deper29: try this: http://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2011/09/live-usb-sticking-grub-2-video/

<ubottu> anthony: LTS means Long Term Support. LTS versions of Ubuntu will be supported for 3 years on the desktop, and 5 years on the server. The current LTS version of Ubuntu is !Lucid (Lucid Lynx 10.04)

<fellayaboy> can someone help…my wired connection keeps getting connection established and disconnected every 2 seconds…whats going on???
<invisiblek> tried a different network cable? different port?
<invisiblek> (always gotta try the easy things first)
<invisiblek> what kind of nic is it?
<fellayaboy> unforunaltey theres no other port
<invisiblek> :(
<fellayaboy> idk
<fellayaboy> how do i find out?
<invisiblek> its probably not the port, but worth a shot
<invisiblek> run: lspci
<invisiblek> copy and paste it on pastebin
<invisiblek> and then give me the link
<fellayaboy> i setup a vpn..i put my wired connection to share to other computers…..i connect to the net with my wireless…so im thinkin it could be that
<invisiblek> hmm, you set up vpn to do that?
<Anthony> what do i chose a partiton disk for best results
<invisiblek> Anthony, it depends on what you want to do. do you plan to have another OS on this hard drive?
<fellayaboy> yes
<invisiblek> if not, just do the guided using the entire drive
<Anthony> no
<invisiblek> fellayaboy, you probably would want something more like a NAT instead of VPN for that situation
<cfhowlett> Anthony: use the whole drive then
<fellayaboy> http://pastebin.com/ipH59ZYV#
<fellayaboy> can a tun0 connection do something like that to this thing?
<Anthony> k ty
<invisiblek> fellayaboy, i really don’t think you want to use a vpn here (which is what tun would be used for)
<Lazerath> I the “cat partitions” command in the /proc folder
<Lazerath> The boot drive is sda1
<Lazerath> But the files are on the lvm sda5
<Lazerath> the sda1 does have some files for booting
<Lazerath> But the lvm is locked so how do I reinstall grub
<FloodBot1> Lazerath: Please don’t flood; use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste; don’t use Enter as punctuation.
<fellayaboy> wheres the log to see why its disconnecting and connecting
<fellayaboy> no i do invisiblek
<fellayaboy> im bridging my xbox to my home network
<fellayaboy> or trying to …using vpn
<invisiblek> any reason in particular you want to use vpn?
<fellayaboy> trying to use this app from verizon fios so i can watch tv at this temporary location using my xbox
<urlin2u> !who
<ubottu> As you can see, this is a large channel. If you’re speaking to someone in particular, please put their nickname in what you say (use !tab), or else messages get lost and it becomes confusing :)
<fellayaboy> it only works from my lan..so im guessing if i vpn it should work
<invisiblek> ic
<fellayaboy> !tab
<ubottu> You can use your key for autocompletion of nicknames in IRC, as well as for completion of filenames and programs on the command line.
<invisiblek> are you plugged directly from the ubuntu box to the xbox?
<fellayaboy> invisiblek, yes..im plugged directly to the xbox with my ubuntu box
<invisiblek> using a crossover or straight through cable?
<fellayaboy> straight cable
<fellayaboy> this worked before
<fellayaboy> idk if my hardware just went dead or since i upgraded to 11.10
<fellayaboy> or the vpn setup..everything works fine…when i vpn it works good
<fellayaboy> when im not vpn it works good too invisiblek
<invisiblek> hmm
<fellayaboy> its just the wired connection keeps restarting…at first it was stable…then it just continued to reconnect every 2 seconds…
<invisiblek> tried with static ip addresses?
<fellayaboy> naaah
<bobenhaus> this clown just got home from woek
<invisiblek> worth a shot, if there is an issue with whatever is handing out dhcp…
<fellayaboy> i know its not the cable
<fellayaboy> when i connect the xbox directly to the router it works fine
<fellayaboy> wheres the log
<fellayaboy> is there a log i can use?
<invisiblek> /var/log/syslog maybe?
<invisiblek> dmesg
<fellayaboy> let me see brb
<invisiblek> good luck
<fellayaboy> http://pastebin.com/7Xb8y8eT
<fellayaboy> take a look at that invisiblek

<c_smith> could a printer only printing in yellow and black be a software problem?
<ActionParsnip> c_smith: print a huge bock of cyan and magenta, may pull the ink through, or do a head clean
<ActionParsnip> *block
<c_smith> ActionParsnip, how would I do this?
<ActionParsnip> c_smith: use gimp or similar, print head clean will depen on the make and model. HP have a fantastic tool kit which can probably do head cleaning
<c_smith> ah, ok
<c_smith> I’ll try the block first.
<c_smith> printers are a new thing to me.
<c_smith> ActionParsnip, looks like the ink just wasn’t coming through yet, as these blocks are making it come through now.

<FloodBot1> diggdeep: Please don’t flood; use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste; don’t use Enter as punctuation.

<Anthony> no 2g
<ActionParsnip> diggdeep: what GPU do you use?
<new2net> With natty/unity x86 32bit. The option to lock the screen after a period of time is kind of buggy. When I return to my screen (which should be locked) it actually lets see and interact with the desktop enviro<bobenhaus> anyone here using xchat?

<bobenhaus> I’m using 1.3
<North> OctoByte: How can I check if it’s NTFS or not?
<urlin2u> North, the disk utility will tell you or in the terminal sudo blkid
<urlin2u> or sudo fsdik -l
<Anthony> urlin2u: are you going to help me
<bobenhaus> spotify crashed on my first try but now it is running fine
<bobenhaus> :)
<urlin2u> Anthony, if I was I use your nic, as fra as your computer and linux you just have to try a few and see what works for you.
<urlin2u> far*
<Anthony> i have been having problems with grub
<urlin2u> Anthony, what are they I missed that?
<Anthony> i keep getting grub rescue error
<urlin2u> Anthony, can you give any background leading to that, and if you have more then one hard drive.
<Anthony> just on
<urlin2u> anothony any back to this?
<urlin2u> Anthony, anything preceding this grub error or just random incidence?
<Anthony> what you mean
<urlin2u> Anthony, I’m not sure I can exsplain it any better then my last question.
<OctoByte> North, disk utility or sudo fsdisk -l
<Anthony> i trid in stall ubuntu and xbuntu
<urlin2u> Anthony, both….. one after the other can you give details.
<North> urlin2u: /deb/sdb1: UUID=”xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx” SEC_TYPE=”ext2″ TYPE=”ext3″
<Anthony> yes
<North> OctoByte: can you understand?
<ActionParsnip> Anthony: is the RAM healthy?
<Anthony> yes
<ActionParsnip> Anthony: when did you last test it?
<Anthony> when i had windows a week ago
<ActionParsnip> Anthony: windows doesn’t have a ram tester
<Anthony> no but i was fine whe i had windows
<ActionParsnip> Anthony: i don’t care. I helped someone about 30 mins ago who’s previous OS was OK and the RAM tested as bad
<ActionParsnip> Anthony: another OS running ok is not a ram test
<North> urlin2u: how can I save the terminal command history?
<Anthony> i know that
<urlin2u> North copy and paste it to a doc
<North> urlin2u: it’s impossible.
<ActionParsnip> North: you can run: history > ~/Desktop/HistorySave.txt
<urlin2u> North, why highlight it right click copy and then paste.
<ActionParsnip> Anthony: so why say that windows ran fine, when you know that it’s not a ram test
<North> urlin2u: oh, now it works out
<Anthony> cuase wouldnt that cuase issues with windows
<North> /dev/sda1: UUID=”5af9c171-e566-4c85-84be-f36aa6ee6b37″ TYPE=”ext3″
<North> /dev/sda5: TYPE=”swap” UUID=”4f3ea3c7-9588-48d3-b72b-73efd5f229a5″
<North> /dev/sdb1: UUID=”56e6fba8-12c0-4ae6-88a5-edb9b3c966ef” SEC_TYPE=”ext2″ TYPE=”ext3″
<urlin2u> North, check ActionParsnip’s command as well.
<ActionParsnip> Anthony: windows may be able to detect and avoid bad ram
<ActionParsnip> Anthony: it is a completely different OS
<Anthony> so how do i check
<North> OctoByte: /dev/sda1: UUID=”5af9c171-e566-4c85-84be-f36aa6ee6b37″ TYPE=”ext3″
<North> /dev/sda5: TYPE=”swap” UUID=”4f3ea3c7-9588-48d3-b72b-73efd5f229a5″
<North> /dev/sdb1: UUID=”56e6fba8-12c0-4ae6-88a5-edb9b3c966ef” SEC_TYPE=”ext2″ TYPE=”ext3″
<ActionParsnip> Anthony: the CD has the memtester on it, run it a few mins and if you see any RED, your RAM is damaged some place
<superdave_> Does anyone else have trouble networking with usb wifi adapters?
<Anthony> ok
