YashySo I just installed xubuntu 7.10 i386 where I had xubuntu 7.10 amd64. Even though uname -a shows SMP, when I do "grep core /proc/cpuinfo" it's only saying 1 cpu core. It was recognizing the dual core under xubuntu amd6400:14

zoredacheYashy: I am pretty sure the 'uname -a' is just telling you the kernel was compiled with the SNP functionality00:24
zoredachenot that it detected a SMP processor00:24
YashyAny idea why it's only detecting an SMP processor?00:24
zoredachehow many, and what kind of processors do you have?00:25

zoredachethis seems to be a common issue, I am getting several hits on google... I am not seeing a solution though00:28
Yashyyeah, I searched online before asking here00:28
zoredacheserveral people seem to think that a using a newer kernel makes things work00:29
zoredachea couple people seem to think booting with the 'noapic' kernel helps00:31
Yashynoapic didn't fix my issue00:37
philphotook so I did multiple reboots measuring boot time after changing various lines in /boot/grub/menu.lst  and still my boot time is no faster than 3:20.  any advice on how to speed this up?00:37
Yashyphilphoto: Applications -> System -> Services # remove as many as possible00:38
zoredachephilphoto: why are you adjusting the menu.lst to change the boot time, and what are you calling 'booted'?00:38
philphotozoredache: I'm measuring boot time from bios post to login screen00:39
zoredacheadjust grub only tweaks kernel options which is a small part of the boot process00:40
zoredachethere is the starting of services and such that also take up a significate ammount of time...  Follow Yashy's advice to get edit things in a gui00:41
philphotowhich services don't I need?  by stopping them at boot will i be cutting out anything the system normally relies on?00:44
philphotozoredache: i also can't get that splash screen to work.  I login with three minutes of black screen.  I'd like a splash or even text showing me what's going on00:45
zoredachephilphoto: yes, stopping services will reduce functionality...  As for which ones you don't need, you'll probably have to google for that00:45
philphotoright, right00:45
YashyAnyone have any other ideas on how I get my my dual-core CPU recognized properly?01:07

heavenlyblade101allo all01:42
TailsfanIt's SO old, it doesn't even have ACPI01:45
Tailsfanand Xubuntu has Shutdown probs, I have to turn my OC iff hard01:45
heavenlyblade101hey, i was thinking about puting Xubuntu on my lappy, if i do that is there anyway to have XP as my primary os and not use grub?01:47
heavenlyblade101i dont like the grub loader and i wanna be able to just toss in an XP disk and format the drive if i dont want linux anymore.01:48
TailsfanAcronis Boot Loader is all I can think of01:49
Tailsfanand there are some boot Loaders on Ultimate Boot CD01:50
heavenlyblade101when u dual boot two windows os' you get a default boot loader, i wanna use that one01:50
ron_oanyone know of an application that can read what manufacturer a DVD comes from?01:53
neur1heya somerville32 what version are you using?01:57
neur1did you ever try to get fluxbox working?01:58
neur1or does it come with it?01:58
somerville32no, I run Xubuntu01:59
neur1with xfce, but you never tried to get fluxbox working with it?02:00
heavenlyblade101sorry, i was afk.02:01
heavenlyblade101no one knows how to use the ms dos boot loader to run ubuntu?02:01
neur1i was gonna try to, because xfce is still a little to much for my laptop02:01
neur1a ibm 600e with 288ram02:02
heavenlyblade101whats xfce? lol sorry, total n00b02:02
neur1the default desktop manager that comes with xubuntu02:03
neur1like ubuntu has gnome02:03
heavenlyblade101i see, now i know waht ya mean02:04
neur1it confused me too lol02:04
neur1because xfce looks like gnome02:05
heavenlyblade101yeah, its just faster02:05
heavenlyblade101so to aviod grub, could i install xubuntu, and THEN XP or is there a choice to instal grub?02:07
ron_oyou have to install XP first then linux..02:08
ron_oXP will take over your master boot record.02:08
neur1if you install xp after xubuntu it'll erace it i think because xp doesn't see it02:08
ron_oand you want grub..02:09
ron_othe thing is when you install grub after XP for a dual boot, you'll need to kind of manually tell grub where XP is..02:09
ron_oa dual boot isn't easy, mine you.02:09
heavenlyblade101no lol i dont, last time i had grub on a system i couldnt get rid of it, i had to pull the drive, slave it, then format it02:10
ron_othen you want Lilo?02:10
ron_olilo is much harder to use than grub.02:10
ron_oyah, because grub took over your master book record. However, there were probably easier ways to get rid of it than what you did.02:11
heavenlyblade101i want the boot loader that xp uses lol, if u dual boot XP then u get a microsoft boot loader02:11
ron_oyou can't use XPs boot loader with a dual boot with linux.02:11
zenroxyou can but its a pain02:12
ron_ojust like you can't have your cake and eat it too.02:12
ron_ozenrox, well *he* can't. :)02:12
zenroxgrub is better at handling linux and xp02:12
ron_oI couldn't do that.02:12
* ron_o doesn't use Windows anymore. :_)02:12
ron_owhat a relief.. :)02:12
* heavenlyblade101 needs windows on his lappy, he was raised with it lol02:12
zenroxso was i but i changed that02:13
ron_owell, after I had to reinstall windows98 two years ago I decided instead to go the linux route. It was way easier than dealing with reinstalling everything I had with Windows.02:13
heavenlyblade101i would gladly put xubuntu or ubuntu on this lappy but i dont wanna take any risks with it.02:13
ron_othen don't do it.02:13
heavenlyblade101thats why i want to have linux as a secondary02:14
ron_omake backups.. or live with the consequences.02:14
zenroxi dual boot win and linux on a friends lappy02:14
neur1i dual boot02:14
heavenlyblade101whith what boot loader?02:14
zenroxand kept his restor partion02:14
ron_oit's a pain to do that. I had to buy PartitionMagic some years back to get it done.02:14
zenroxdont need toi do it any more02:15
heavenlyblade101with grub, an u have XP as the primary, so you dont automaticly boot to linux?02:15
ron_oWindows even throws some arbitrary files/applications in the end/middle of the hard drive.. no doubt for this reason.02:15
zenroxubuntu's partion editor off of the live cd handels the resizing of a windows partion02:15
ron_ozenrox, no, there are great p... you said it. :)02:15
ron_oanyway, heavenlyblade101, even dual booting with linux has its problems. It's not really for amateurs.02:16
ron_owith computers, if something bad can happen it will.02:16
heavenlyblade101i know a fair bit about computers its just linux, lol02:17
ron_othe thing I love about linux is if you really want an application you can get it -- for free. And it's safe without malware and secure.02:17
ron_oheavenlyblade101, well, you don't sound too sophisticated to me. You said you wanted Xubuntu with Windows w/o risk.02:18
heavenlyblade101is it still illegal to edit windows programs on linux lol02:18
heavenlyblade101and lol i just meant with little risk02:18
ron_owell, whatever term you use, it's risky.. the risk is proportional to your knowledge of both OSs.02:19
heavenlyblade101ha yeah, that is true.02:19
ron_ogood luck.  :)02:20
YashyI'm having two issues as a result of my NVIDIA driver in the restricted drivers category. If I remove it, xfce will only let me do 800x600. Is there another easy alternative that I can remove this proprietary broken driver and yet still do 1600x1200?02:20
zenroxadd 1600x1200 to the /etc/X11/xorg.conf file for the bitrate you use02:21

YashyMy issue is usually within 10 minutes of booting the OS, the mouse locks up02:27

Yashyhttp://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=279626 seems many people having this issue03:43
Yashyon page 6 now of the thread, seems that linux kernel sending power to USB devices is finicky, and that is the reason. Apparently if you use a powered USB hub for your mouse, this will not occur03:44
j1mcthanks for that info, Yashy.  which version of xubuntu are you running?03:44
Yashystrange there is no mention of other USB devices being affected, including the stock USB keyboard03:44
Yashyxubuntu 7.10 on i386, I had the same issue on amd64 of the same03:45
j1mcok.  weird.03:45
Yashy(I switched to i386 today hoping it would go away, but it exists in i386 as well)03:45
j1mcwere you using the proprietary nvidia driver in amd64, too?03:45
j1mcit is kind of weird that those posts are from 2006... and it's the same issue03:47
j1mcYashy: ... that seems to be a good thread, at least the end of it.03:51
j1mci would suggest updating your bios, and checking to make sure plug'n'play is enabled in your bios.03:52
j1mcof course, the nvidia driver is closed source, too... so we can't really do much to fix it (if that is the problem)03:52
* Yashy is trying now with "acpi=off irqpoll pci=routeirq"03:53
j1mcso you may want to go back to the regular "nv" driver if this continues to happen.  of course, that means no 3-d rendering.03:53
j1mcok... good luck.  i need to go off and do some work now.03:53
Yashyyup, I'm on dell's site looking for the BIOS update now03:53

ArtemCan someone please help me figure out how to install ndiswrapper? I've got xubuntu 6.06 alternate, if that helps. Sorry to bother, but at my level of comprehension as of so far, I can't really get anything to work.05:28
ere4siArtem, go to applications - system - synaptic package manager and open that - click the search button and type   ndiswrapper   and hit enter - then right click the box for it and choose install05:31
ere4siI would select ndisgtk - the dependencies will automatically be installed with it05:33
ArtemWhat's ndisgtk?05:35
ArtemHeh, never mind. Google is my friend.05:37
ere4siArtem: it is the graphical frontend to ndiswrapper - a window for it so you don't have to use command line05:37
ere4siArtem, if you click a package in synaptic an explanation about it appears at the bottom05:38
ArtemI did a search for ndisgtk, but couldn't find anything. I installed ndiswrapper, do I have to restart for changes to apply?05:40
ere4siArtem: open a terminal and type ndiswrapper - if it is ready it will start - which xubuntu are you on?05:41
Artem6.06 alternate?05:41
ere4si!info ndiswrapper05:42
ubotuPackage ndiswrapper does not exist in gutsy05:42
ubotuWireless documentation can be found at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WifiDocs05:42

ere4sisorry - dapper then Artem ...05:46
ArtemThanks a bunch for helping me out.05:46
ere4siArtem, the ndisgtk is probably in the universe or multiverse repositories05:46

ere4siPharserror, I don't have chkconfig on my comp so have no more suggestions - does seem strange tho05:56
Pharserrorwhy is it that you don't have it either? do you know how to get it?05:57
ArtemSo, with no ethernet connector, I can't access the files on the internet to get my network card running so I can go onto the internet. Talk about a recursive situation. ;>05:57
ere4siArtem, you can walk the packages to the other comp with a mem stick05:59
ArtemIs working with ndiswrapper from the terminal that hard?06:00
ere4siPharserror, what does it do - is it in synaptic?06:00
Pharserrorit's for managing the rc[0-6].d directory tree06:01
ere4siPharserror, there's the sysv-rc package for doing that in synaptic06:01
Pharserrori'll check synaptic, but an apt-get install chkconfig doesn't produce anything06:02
Pharserrorere4si, the tutorial I'm following for setting up this LAMP server calls for this specific command06:02
ere4siPharserror, the first two google results for it are red hat based06:04
ere4siPharserror, it is not in synaptic at all06:04
Pharserrordamn redhat shit06:04
ere4siPharserror, sysv-rc will let you change services in runlevels06:04
Pharserrorere4si, can I get that through apt-get install sysv-rc -y?06:05
