DeRoSvOsHey all, I upgraded to 10.04 LTS via Upgrade Manager... when I did that, my GUI stopped in Normal... it works in Recovery Mode.  When I try to install from a fresh 10.04 DVD, it flashes the logo for a second, then black screen...16:36
ron_ohehe, linux is too cool. Need more swap space? Just add another partition on another drive...16:49
ron_oI'm thinking the reason why my suspend keeps acting abnormally is because not enough swap space. So much for smaller is better.16:49
ron_oDeRoSvOs, I couldn't solve your problem but obviously it has to do with xorg.conf .... I would make copies of my old /etc/X11/xorg.conf and see if other ones work for you.16:51
ron_ojust make sure you have a text editor that works in your terminal so you can change it back if you need to.16:52
TheSheepron_o: it's even better, you can just add a file for swap16:53
TheSheepron_o: and since kernel 2.6 it's as fast as a partition16:53
ron_oTheSheep, yah.. but I hear you shouldn't...16:53
TheSheepron_o: why not?16:53
ron_odoes the file grow or is it static in size?16:53
ron_oI mean, it's better to use a partition.16:53
TheSheepron_o: "better" how?16:55
ron_oI've always heard it. I never knew why.16:56
TheSheepthat's how cargo cults are born16:56
TheSheepit used to be faster in older kernels16:56
ron_oI bet Windows dynamic swap is one reason there's some fragmentation on the drive.16:56
ron_oI barely use my swap anyway.16:57
TheSheepwell, linux filesystems work completely differently and you use static size of swap anyways (but you can add more files if needed)16:57
TheSheepalso, if you have several physical disks, it's good to have a swap for each of them16:58
TheSheepthen the reading/writing can be spread and is faster overall16:58
DeRoSvOsWhat if the latest XUbuntu 10.04 DVD doesn't work on install?  Get the logo, then a flash, then black screen?16:58
DeRoSvOsOff the DVD.16:58
ron_oDeRoSvOs, what video card do you have?16:59
TheSheepDeRoSvOs: did you check the disk? there is an option for this in the menu16:59
ron_oI have NVIDIA so I have to adjust things after an upgrade.16:59
DeRoSvOsWell, I can see the install, and when I hit enter to install, it just goes black.17:00
DeRoSvOsI don't see a "video" option per say.17:00
ron_ono.. he means "Check Disk" option.17:00
ron_osome burns are bad.17:00
DeRoSvOsWaiting on the lspci output.  My buddy's on the phone with me, he's the one with the problem. ;)  lol17:02
ron_oand you're typing what he's saying?17:03
ron_oactually, it sounds like his problem *is* your problem.17:03
DeRoSvOsron_o:  Yeah, typing what he's saying.17:10
DeRoSvOsron_o:  I told him he should consider another distro.  I hate to do this.  I hate to refer to another Distro.  I'm a CentOS guy, myself.17:10
DeRoSvOsron_o:  Just, I know the problem is with Xorg... I just can't figure out WHY it's a problem.17:11
DeRoSvOsron_o:  Is the default conf in /etc/X11/17:11
ron_othere are usually several xorg files as well as the default one on /etc/X1117:11
ron_oin *17:11
ron_oCentOS, isn't that for servers?17:12
DeRoSvOsron_o:  No?  You can run X on it and run it bare bones without services.17:14
DeRoSvOsron_o:  It's upstream is Redhat, that's all.  Diff packaging managers.17:14
ron_oI just looked it up. But it's mainly for servers.17:14
ron_oI see.17:14
ron_onothing is easier than Ubuntu.17:14
ron_omaybe Mint...17:15
DeRoSvOsron_o:  In tihs case, it's not really easy. ;)  The people on #Ubuntu aren't even addressing me because I use Xubuntu.17:15
ron_oyah, I know. I don't even go there.17:15
DeRoSvOsThey see the X and go, "Go to XUbuntu"17:15
DeRoSvOsI never force my distro of choice on anyone, but, this time around... 2 x DVD burns... no success.17:15
ron_oI've run sevarel OSs in virtual environment, VBox, but it's not the same on a computer. All hardware always works in a virtual environ, from what I've ever noticed.17:17
ross_Hello! I am having an audio issue. It works fine but then about 5 minutes into using an application it will suddenly cut out, but only for that application.18:55
nicofsevery time i click on a link that opens in firefox, firefox switches to the workspace i am on. i don't want that - how can i make firefox stay in its workspace?22:46

nicofscan someone help me set my cpu's speed? somehow governor and powernowd don't work...22:57
well_laid_lawnnicofs: which governor?22:59
nicofswell_laid_lawn: it's called governor plugin and is a button in my task bar...23:00
well_laid_lawnnicofs: is the cpufreqd daemon required for it?23:01
nicofswell_laid_lawn: is there a way for me to find out? to be honest i was quite desperate and installed quite a lot of progs to get it working...23:02
well_laid_lawnnicofs: apart from reading up on it on the site you got the plugin from I wouldn't know23:03
nicofswell_laid_lawn: cpufreqd is not installed... so i think it might not be required...23:03
well_laid_lawnnicofs: with cpufreqd running I use a bash script to change mine23:04
well_laid_lawnnicofs: is the plugin from ubuntu repo?23:04
nicofswell_laid_lawn: if i install cpufreqd could you talk me through that? // i found it... "governor plugin for the Xfce4 panel" apparently it is from the ubuntu repo...23:05
well_laid_lawnnicofs: there might be some docs for it in /usr/share/doc23:06
nicofswell_laid_lawn: no...23:08
nicofswell_laid_lawn: but i can live without that plugin... that bash script thing sounds interesting - i have never done that before so i might learn something...23:09
well_laid_lawnnicofs: just pasting it now23:09
well_laid_lawnnicofs: http://paste.ubuntu.com/463205/23:10
well_laid_lawnyou need to add a line to /etc/init.d/rc.local I think it is called - not on a buntu box atm23:11
nicofswell_laid_lawn: anywhere in init.d ? i have cpu0 and cpu1 - which should i choose?23:15
well_laid_lawnnicofs: they both get changed at the same time23:15
well_laid_lawnnicofs: there is a local file in init.d where you add that line23:16
well_laid_lawna file named local nicofs23:16
nicofswell_laid_lawn: sorry, my mistake - i meant that "rc.local" file... i  inserted the line right after the end of the comment...23:17
well_laid_lawnnicofs: it needs to be on a line of its' own23:18
nicofswell_laid_lawn: ok, did that - what irritated my is that this line is about cpu1 whereas the script is about cpu0...23:19
well_laid_lawnnicofs: if you do one the other cpu changes at he same time23:19
well_laid_lawncan't just change one23:19
well_laid_lawnI've tried and tried and...23:20
nicofswell_laid_lawn: right... i saved the code you pastebined as "cpu-scaling.bash" on my desktop...23:21
nicofswell_laid_lawn: i need to make it executable, don't i?23:21
well_laid_lawnnicofs: then right click, select properties and then the box making it executable23:21
nicofswell_laid_lawn: ok... that box isn't there...23:22
well_laid_lawnnicofs: I forgot to mention selecting the permissions tab23:23
nicofswell_laid_lawn: i figured that :-) still no box...23:24
nicofswell_laid_lawn: mybe wrong owner?23:24
well_laid_lawnnicofs: do it from terminal   chmod +x /path/to/cpu-scaling.bash23:24
nicofswell_laid_lawn: done23:26
nicofswell_laid_lawn: it told me my current speed...23:26
well_laid_lawnnicofs: you haven't used the line you put in init.d 'cause you haven't rebooted - copy that line to terminal and put sudo in front23:27
nicofswell_laid_lawn: hmm... that makes sense... i actually do understand (to a certain extent) what i am doing here...23:28
nicofswell_laid_lawn: ok. in that line i had to swap cpu1 for cpu0 in order for it to work - i then got a menu to choose from. but i chose 1GHz and after that it said current speed 1,66 ...23:31
well_laid_lawnnicofs: what is it normally pls?23:31
nicofswell_laid_lawn: supported are 1000, 1330 and 1660. and normally it's at 1660 all the time... which is annoying...23:32
well_laid_lawnnicofs: it sounds like the chmod didn't work...23:33
well_laid_lawnnicofs: I forgot you need to be using the   userspace   governor23:34
nicofswell_laid_lawn: it had an effect... before that i didn't have the menu... how do i do that...23:34
well_laid_lawnnicofs: in /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/scaling_available_governors what is now available?23:35
nicofswell_laid_lawn: "conservative ondemand userspace powersave performance"23:37
well_laid_lawnnicofs: cpufreqd has a conf file in /etc where you can set the default governor23:38
nicofswell_laid_lawn: and i should set that to userspace... all right...23:39
well_laid_lawnnicofs: then   sudo service cpufreqd restart   afaik23:40
nicofswell_laid_lawn: i can't find a specifig default governor... there are only profiles with entries for "policy"... change them to userspace?23:44
well_laid_lawnnicofs: one min23:44
well_laid_lawnnicofs: here there is a folder /etc/conf.d that has the cpufreq conf file in it that lets you select the governor23:46
nicofswell_laid_lawn: my cpufreqd.conf was in /etc/ ...23:47
well_laid_lawnnicofs: it is a seperate file without the .conf at the end23:48
nicofswell_laid_lawn: i don't have /etc/conf.d23:49
well_laid_lawnnicofs: then make sure the performance profiles use   userspace   as the governor23:50
well_laid_lawnin cpufreqd.conf23:50
nicofswell_laid_lawn: done and service restarted...23:51
well_laid_lawnnicofs: try the script23:51
nicofswell_laid_lawn: no change... refuses to go below 1,66GHz23:52
well_laid_lawnnicofs: look in /etc/default for a cpufreq file23:52
nicofswell_laid_lawn: CPUFREQ_GOV_MODULES="auto" --> CPUFREQ_GOV_MODULES="userspace" ?23:54
well_laid_lawnnicofs: yep23:54
nicofswell_laid_lawn: changed that restarted service, no change...23:55
nicofswell_laid_lawn: should i reboot, just in case...?23:56
well_laid_lawnnicofs: worth a shot23:56
nicofswell_laid_lawn: i'm good at shooting...^^23:56
nicofswell_laid_lawn: hmm... menu's gone...23:59
