starvinmarvinI'm trying to copy files from /home/user/ to another mounted hard drive. I've tried many folders at once and only one folder. Each time, all of the windows just close about 1/3 the way through the copy. Any suggestions?01:10
starvinmarvinWhy would the file manager's just close? Am I missing something?01:16
cheeseboyTheSheep you around ?01:16

cheeseboystarvinmarvin you know python?01:18
starvinmarvincan't say that I do...well I could, but it would be a lie.01:18
hellekinstarvinmarvin: are you using drag'n'drop? Then try cp -r /home/user/ /path/to/your/target/ from the terminal instead01:18

hellekinmy printer driver just froze the kernel... Huh.01:20
starvinmarvinwell it wasn't working the first time cause it would crash xfce (sp?) I read about the bug and how to fix it with an update.01:20
starvinmarvinnow..instead of crasing xfce it just opens a terminal window and sits there, open. No cursor or nothing. I can move the window around, but i can't type anything in it01:20
starvinmarvinUnfortunately I don't know how to fix that one.01:21

Balaams_MiracleI've a question about hardware. I am going to need a new harddisk to replace my dying PATA harddisk which is currently hda1, if i were to replace it with a SATA drive, will the designation change to sda1? If so, how much problems could i expect if i copied the contents of my current drive to the new one using the dd command?04:29
retardowhich one should i use if I want to connect to my xubuntu by SSH ?04:43
retardowhich program04:43
retardoin xubuntu04:43
retardonot from the pc that connects04:43
Balaams_MiracleSorry, i've never used it04:57
Balaams_MiracleHowever, i would imagine that on the connecting PC, you use SSH, on the PC that you connect to, i believe you should have openssl server (or something like that)04:58
retardoshouldnt it be openssh server ?05:00
Pumpernickel!info openssh-server05:03
ubotuopenssh-server: Secure shell server, an rshd replacement. In component main, is optional. Version 1:4.3p2-8ubuntu1 (feisty), package size 230 kB, installed size 596 kB05:03
PumpernickelBalaams_Miracle: If you're on Feisty, they'd both be named using the /dev/sd* naming convention because of the libata change.05:03
PumpernickelAlso, dd is really really not supposed to be used as an archival tool, that way.05:04
retardowell.. that link i gave is teh thing.. its working :)05:05
Balaams_MiraclePumpernickel: I've upgraded from Dapper => Edgy => Feisty. And i do my archiving using a backup tool. However, i was told that dd will duplicate a harddisk to another, so that's how i was planning on using it.05:06

Balaams_MiracleI've been told that there is a command that will clone a harddisk to another. I was also told that dd would do that, but according to Pumpernickel, that's not correct. But what should i use instead then?05:26
Ghostvirushm, that's a little beyond me05:27
Ghostvirusi'm guessing no one on the forums knew?05:27
Balaams_MiracleDidn't try the forums yet. I was here when the question popped up in my head :-)05:28
