derjenshi everybody02:46
derjensi am preparing a xubuntu box for my mum... it needs kernel parameter acpi=force to poweroff perfectly02:47
derjensi guess updates do change the menu.lst of grub, don't they?02:48
derjenshow to make xubuntu keep this parameter when updates come in?02:48
BFTDderjens you can't but its very easy to add it02:51
derjensBFTD, please explain this in detail. i could add it to the menu.lst but when my mum runs an update it will be destroyed, won't it?02:52
derjens(an update that covers GRUB, of course)02:52
BFTDderjens no, when it gets updated stuff is only added to the menu.lst02:52
derjenssounds great:)02:53
BFTDderjens all you have to do is add acpi=force to the kernel section in the menu.lst02:53
derjensthanks so far!02:53
BFTDyou'll need to add it to the new section that'll be added02:53
derjensdoes xubuntu introduce new kernel versions to old versions? i mean, will this box ever see an update with kernel 2.6.22 or whatever?02:54
BFTDit'll add the newest it can02:54
BFTDbut ti won't erase the old one if thats what you mean02:55
BFTDso if the newest one doesn't work02:55
BFTDyou can always resort back to the old one02:55
derjensyeah, problem is that i would have to add the "acpi=force" to every new kernel that is installed, right? no real problem actually02:56
BFTDderjens no you can jsut add it to the one you're gonna use02:57
BFTDyou only use one kernel at a time02:57
=== kalikiana_ [n=kalikian@xdsl-84-44-177-157.netcologne.de] has joined #xubuntu
derjensBFTD, does that mean when a new kernel is installed xubuntu will keep using the old one until i change menu.lst by hand?03:00
BFTDderjens no it uses the newest one unless you change it03:01
derjensBFTD, sorry for asking stupid questions but i don't get it... this is what i expect to happen:03:01
derjensnow i have kernel 2.6.21 and add "acpi=force" to this particular entry in menu.lst03:02
derjensin some months a new kernel will say hello and a new entry for it will be added to menu.lst. with default parameters! xubuntu will boot this kernel as it is the newest one. so it will boot without "acpi=force"03:03
derjensi hope you now know what i wanna say03:04
BFTDderjens yes, however you can add the parameter BEFORE it boots03:04
derjensBFTD, okay. you're right -- *I* can do that. but my mum really *can't* do that:-) so i will have to teach her a bit03:05
derjensbut i've understood the way xubuntu works in this aspect. thanks for answering!03:05
BFTDderjens just set up ssh on her system and do it yourself03:06
BFTDderjens I had a similar problem with my sister who lives a few hundred miles away, so I just installed ssh and did it that way03:07
ceil420uhm... oops :x i just xkill'd desktop <_< what's the command to bring it back?03:07
ceil420xfce-desktop or sumn?03:07
BFTDceil420 yeah or xfdesktop03:08
BFTDlet me look03:08
BFTDyeah its xfdesktop03:08
ceil420that sounds familiar03:08
ceil420thanks o/03:08
derjensBFTD, thanks for the idea with ssh. maybe this is a solution:)03:08

cellofellowI use getdeb.net to install updates to some of favorite programs. The rest I'm happy with the mostly-stable stuff in Feisty.05:24
cellofellowI think grumpy make make normal Ubuntu more stable. They use that to fix problems instead of the Ubuntu or Ubuntu+1 release.05:26
vinzeLot of work though05:27
vinzeGetdeb is cool05:27
cellofellow(But now, Ubuntu has a three stage development like Debian: Always Unstable, Working on It, and Stable.)05:27
cellofellowGetDeb and Gdebi make installing software almost Windows-esk. Good for newbs.05:27
cellofellowActually, Ubuntu now has Five stages: Debian Sid (it's based on that) Grumpy, Ubuntu+1, Ubuntu, Ubuntu LTS.05:28

cellofellowXlib: No protocol specified05:32
cellofellowI know X has connection control.05:32
vinzeThat's what I get when I try to run a graphical application after I did "su vincent" in my sister's account05:32

LectusHave anyone compared speed of Xubuntu with other XFCE distros like Vector, ZenWalk, etc... I really like Xubuntu, but I'd like to view how it compares in speed and memory usage...08:12
BFTDLectus yes I have08:13
BFTDI've compared it to zenwalk08:14
BFTDthey're almost the same08:14
BFTDin some cases Xubuntu will be faster08:14
BFTDin others zenwalk will08:14
Jester45xubuntu has a larger repo. so you can install more programs without the need to compile or get third party packages08:14
Lectusi really like Xubuntu community, and ubuntu repos available in Xubuntu. I think I'll really install Xubuntu. I think it's not worth the trouble installing other distros to get a 0.1% performance increase08:15
BFTDZenwalk uses tarball so you're actually very limited on what you can install with the package manager08:16
Lectusyes... I really like running at maximum performance. That's why I'll install Xubuntu on my new powerful machine :D08:16

BFTDLectus first, install ubtuntu minimal on your system, then add the XFCE packages and build your XFCE system up from there08:21
BFTDthat'll get you a really powerful system08:21
LectusBFTD: I think I prefer what I did before: Install Xubuntu to get cool defaults and the remove/add/customize things.08:22
Jester45Lectus, thats what i do08:22
LectusXubuntu already is very minimal, without the need to recompile things.08:23
Jester45hyper_ch, like me i remove lots and lots of packages and allmost all the .desktop files because i like a small menu08:24

Jester45things that i know the command to launch or things dont need like network config i remove it08:24
LectusI tried Arch Linux, installed the base system. But xorg always gave me trouble. I'm starting to think distros "from scratch" are not really good. it's easier to install xubuntu and remove things than install slackware for example and add things08:25

elbingthe normal site to nvidia.ko is /lib/modules/2.6.20-16-generic/nvidia/11:55
crimsunit's a mountpoint11:57
crimsunand it's named volatile because, well, the mountpoint is volatile.11:57
crimsunessentially, the Linux license does not permit shipping binary-only proprietary globs as part of the image, so it's maintained separated and only linked in at runtime.11:58
