bat21winHey guys, I'm having some problems booting Xubuntu 7.10. I've never had problems with 6.10, but for some reason none of the newer updates will work. The grub will load, I'll select standard generic boot, then it will give me a "loading, please wait message", then nothing.02:40
bat21winBlank screen. For some reason, the 'safe mode' works, but not regular mode.02:41
bat21winAny ideas?02:42

zoredachewhat do you mean 'at the boot'?07:40
maxagazzoredache: I mean the time it takes from the moment you start the computer until the desktop is fully open07:55

mib_e56s548hHello everyone, I need help with a problem I'm having on an Xubuntu computer.14:56
ubotuPlease don't ask to ask a question, ask the question (all on ONE line, so others can read and follow it easily). If anyone knows the answer they will most likely answer. :-)14:57
mib_e56s548hI had a computer with Xubuntu 7.10 on it, it worked great with my broadband high-speed cable internet (it was plug-and-play, I could just plug the Ethernet cable in and Xubuntu automatically recognized the network and I could browse with Firefox immediately). I gave the computer to my friend who has a slightly different internet setup (it's DSL from Mediacom) and he tried plugging his Ethernet cable from his modem in14:58
mib_e56s548hFirefox can't find the server at www.example.com.* Check the address for typing errors such as ww.example.com instead of www.example.com * If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network connection. * If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Firefox is permitted to access the Web. He called me and I tried to help but I don't know what to do. The computer has n14:59
mib_e56s548hIs there anyone there?15:01
maxamillionright, ok ... well since DSL requires a login, where as Cable does not, there is probably some configuration that need to be done15:01
maxamillionbut that would be specific to your friends internet provider and wouldn't actually be an issue on xubuntu's part ... your friend should probably get in touch with his internet provider and find out what modem configuration needs to take place to have it broadcast dhcp leases15:02
homebrewciderwell I'm stuffed if I know what to do next with this video card15:03
mib_e56s548hHe tried contacting his ISP provider (Mediacom) and they were completely unhelpful and said they knew nothing about linux computers15:04
mib_e56s548hWe tried power-cycling the modem and it didn't work, we then opened a Terminal and We typed ifconfig and got something like this: eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:10:5A:1A:DC:6515:05
Stroganoffmib_e56s548h: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/ADSLPPPoE15:05

mib_e56s548hWe then went to System / Administration / Networking and opening the network settings and changing the settings in Connections from DHCP to Static IP.15:06
mib_e56s548hIt asks for your IP address and Gateway address, and automatically puts in your subnet mask number so to find the Gateway address we typed netstat - rn in the terminal and it gave us a table that looked like:15:06
gabkdllymib_e56s548h: did you check the link from Stroganoff? it might help15:07
Stroganoffmib_e56s548h so your friend got a modem without built in router?15:07
mib_e56s548hDestination:   Gateway:
mib_e56s548hOK, I checked out the link from stroganoff15:08
mib_e56s548hit is interesting, I'll have to read up on it more15:09

maxamillionall my machines have a root account and has sudo disabled, but that's a personal preference and a personal belief in security practice20:01
Ben_Csmaxamillion: will i ever need root login?20:01
maxamillionBen_Cs: if you have sudo enabled like it is in default? no, never20:02
Ben_Csmaxamillion: it says administrator account can't be deleted - it'll make the system unusable20:03
maxamillionheh ... well then20:05
maxamillioni've never tried to get rid of root ... just add it20:05
Ben_Csstill need help...20:19

viddthis is a little off topic...is there a way to watch a movie dvd iso in xubuntu?23:29
zoredacheby default, I don't think so... or ate least no encrypted video23:29
zoredachethere are things you can do to make it work23:30
ubotuFor playing DVD, see http://help.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/desktopguide/C/video.html - "libdvdcss2" can be found at !Medibuntu or (for Feisty and earlier) http://wiki.ubuntu.com/SeveasPackages - Try k9copy (available in !Universe) for backing up DVDs23:30
viddzoredache, i found it on google....gxine -V xv /path/to/video.iso23:38
viddof course, i needed libdvdcss2 installed23:38
zoredachevlc works too I think... on unencrypted video anyway23:39
* vidd just likes gxine23:41
viddtons better then totem23:41
viddi think i have an 8-track thats better then totem!23:42
viddunless they made drastic improvements to totem in the last year23:42
viddnow if someone could just explain what the -V and xv mean.....23:43
viddhrm...looks like it might not even need all that23:45
zoredachethe man page seems to say that -V is about choosing your video driver...23:46
viddi cut out all the -V and xv and it works just the same23:47
viddnice...very nice23:48
zoredacheOne would guess that the person who provided the example you used had to use it to get past some kind of bug23:48
viddit was a script he wrote to right-click the iso to play it23:49
viddif im reading the post correctly...but it was for a different distro...so idk23:50
viddwell...im off to watch the movie23:51
vidd(i guess i should really just get the DVD player installed on this box rather then making an iso and ftp'ing it over....)23:52
viddbut thats another story....=]23:52
viddnight all23:52
