Lars_GPlease?12:01
Lars_Gehem. HELP :), I want to install the new libxine, but I tried a unstable deb and of course it failed on dependencies. trouble is, now if I do any apt-get it still wants to install it. and if I do apt-get -f install it will try to remove my current xine and all dependents (like amarok)... any way to make apt forget about libxine for now withotu removing my current one?12:01
dcordesLjL: ok. i will take a closer look on the shared key system. it is anyways important for me because i do a lot ssh for personal use12:01

Josh_123Hello, I was wondering if somebody could help me with my Boot problem. The problem (from what I have found by searching on the internet) is that the ide-generic driver is loading before the ata_piix driver which is required for my sata hard drive causing linux not to load. If somebody could point me in the right direction for reordering the drivers somehow, that would be great!02:42

tonyyarusso!automatix | zeifer06:44
ubotuzeifer: automatix is a script that tries to install some software, and often fails and breaks systems. We don't provide support for it, and we strongly discourage its use. Problems caused by Automatix are often hard to track and solve, and it might sometimes be easier to !install a fresh copy of Ubuntu. See also !WorksForMe06:44
