ballWhat does .3 have that .2 doesn't?04:11
sourceball, http://www.xfce.org/documentation/changelogs/4.4.304:17

ballYou could ask him or her.04:19
viddi changed my cdrom out for a dvd burner...how do i make linux see it?05:02
ballvidd: isn't it automatic?05:02
viddit would appear not05:03
ballvidd: can the drive do DVD-RAM?05:03
viddthe new one can....the old could not05:04
viddthe old was cust cdrom05:04
* ball nods05:04
ballDi you have a DVD-RAM disc?05:04
viddi have a dvd05:04
ballAh, you want to play it?05:05
viddbut even old cd's that pl,ayed in the old drive wont mount in this one05:05
ballvidd: does it have power?05:06
viddyes....it will load and run an install disk...but i dont want to re-install05:07
ballvidd: that's a good sign.05:07
viddi assume i need to change fstab05:08
ballvidd: I doubt it05:08
viddbut i dont know alot about it....05:08
ballvidd: what kind of disc are you trying to use?05:08
viddthis is the line from fstab:05:08
vidd/dev/scd0       /media/cdrom0   udf,iso9660 user,noauto,exec,utf8 0       005:08
viddany disk...none will load from inside linux05:09
ballvidd: what mount command are you using?05:09
viddb4 i changed the hardware, i didnt need to run any mount commands05:10
viddthe disk would be auto-detected by my file manager05:10
ballvidd: what kind of discs?05:11
viddcd, cdrw would auto load on old hardware....nothing loads on new hardware05:11
ballyou've tried DVD-ROMs?05:12
viddright now i put the install disk that i know the drive can read because it booted05:12
ballPerhaps Linux just hates it.05:13
viddthe old hardware could not read dvd's05:13
ballYes, you said that already05:13
viddso i need to know how to tell linux "the hardware has changed"05:13
ballvidd: I doubt that05:13
ballLinux probably doesn't care.05:14
ball...especially with something as standard as an optical drive05:14
viddit obviously DOES care, otherwise the disk would have loaded05:14
ballvidd: okay, if that's what you want to believe.05:15
* ball shrugs05:15
viddi put the old drive back in and it worked05:17

_AldurIs nvidia drviver and xubuntu 8.10 still a problem?15:06
vinnl_Aldur, I believe if you use an old video card then the driver isn't available15:12
vinnl_Aldur, I suppose you could try popping in an 8.10 CD and see whether the driver is available through the Hardware Drivers application15:12
vinnl_Aldur, oh, btw, that's Nvidia's official drivers, open source drivers *are* available but they don't support e.g. compositing, so you won't be able to run Compiz with that15:13
_Aldurthanks  vinnl!15:15
