anom01yno luck with the plymouth / nvidia issue and 10.04 ?02:30
ochosi_anom01y, what do you mean?02:41
anom01ywell like 1000 people are in Ubuntu complainaing about blank screens, failed bootups and other problems.02:42
ochosi_i don't have any problems02:42
anom01yapparently its from Plymouth (part of Ubuntu), and Nvidia02:42
anom01ywell I sure did02:42
ochosi_using the proprietary nvidia driver and plymouth02:42
anom01ycouldn't install it after 3 days of trying02:42
anom01yyeah well it should just work, I know.  But it didn't02:42
ochosi_at first i used nouveau, but not having power management on a laptop makes it pretty useles imo02:42
ochosi_can't say it just worked02:43
ochosi_had to install the kernel headers02:43
ochosi_somehow the dependencies of nvidia-current weren't all too great02:43
ochosi_but with a tiny grub hack you can even get plymouth and flicker-free boot with nvidia's drivers02:44
ochosi_anyways, the problem is that the proprietary nvidia driver doesn't support kms (kernel mode setting) which is needed for plymouth02:44
ochosi_so ubuntu introduced a fallback option for that02:44
ochosi_and that's working pretty ok if you ask me02:45

MaxFramesok, so I have a problem since I've upgraded to 10.04 and no one's been able to help me yet09:56
MaxFrames1 time out of 3 approximately, when I shut down the system the screen goes black, the cursor stops blinking and two of the keyboard leds start flashing (caps lock and scroll lock)09:57
MaxFramesand the PC freezes so that I have to shut it down pressing the power button09:57
MaxFramesthis never happened with 9.10 and I have no clue as to what the led flashing means and how to solve this09:58
TheSheepit means kernel panic10:17
_Techie_i find it funny that your getting  akernel panic on shutdown10:19
MaxFramesit's not that funny actually... expecially because I have no idea why it is happening, I did nothing but upgrading to 1010:32
MaxFramesanyway, are you sure it means kernel panic? shouldn't all three leds blink? in my case the num lock led is not blinking10:33
MaxFramesoh and another thing... this is admittedly non-important... the splash xubuntu logo in 10.04 is butt ugly... surely it can't be meant to be that way... must be a resolution problem... in my case it' all jagged and in false colors like it was a 65k colors image viewed in 16 colors10:39

psycho_oreoskillrog, which driver did you get?13:25
psycho_oreosopm595, I use network manager (albeit I'm with 3) for that13:25
opm595Yep, everyone seems to be saying the same thing. Three seems to be much more Nix happy for some reason. Hmmm13:26
psycho_oreoswell I have huawei E1803, I'm sure network manager should work with it, can't see why not13:28
psycho_oreosand no, their support on nix is shoddy, I managed to figure out some myself13:28
psycho_oreosthere's another tool which I don't think depends on gnome but possibly Qt called umtsmon (albeit that doesn't have fields to input pin)13:29
opm595Ok, might be worth a try13:29
psycho_oreoson the other hand 3's user-less and password-less configuration doesn't work well with wvdial13:29
psycho_oreoswhat's wrong with network manager anyway13:30
opm595Right. bottom line is I've had heaps of headaches connecting Vfone via any Nix distro that's been released in the last 12 months. (x)Ubuntu 8.10 I found was brillaint just setup the packages from Betavine + Net Manager and bingo  - online in 5 mins13:32

lillemanarthurjohnson: Network in network manager is disabled... and enabling it has no effect18:50
lillemantried to add a wired network there to, didnt work18:50

arthurjohnsonlilleman: Network Manager won't work if there is an "iface" line18:51
lillemanOkies. First out there was only the loopback in my /etc/network/interfaces... then it didnt work (it worked when I first installed, and even after reboot yesterday.)18:52

Until karmic i used to start the live cd and perform a manual encryption and partitioning. then i ran the installer on top of it.
