diverteddis it true that i cant compile sourcecode without a configure-file?00:19
diverteddthe sourcecode came from a .tar.gz file00:20
duanedesigndivertedd: does the code come with a Read Me?00:36
duanedesigndivertedd: If no configure file exists at all, you might want to check for the existence of a configure.ac file (although you should, first of all, read the INSTALL and README files very carefully!). If configure.ac exists, chances are that the developer has forgot to create the final configure. To create it yourself, you need the autoconf package.00:40
duanedesignsudo apt-get install autoconf00:40
duanedesignAfter it is installed, you can type :   autoconf00:41
duanedesignand, if you're lucky, a working configure will be created.00:41

chewableMy ubuntu is stuck on booting. it dumps out on a initramfs shell00:52
chewablehow do I get to recovery mode?00:53
duanedesignchewable: while booting i think it is esc key to get to grub menu01:02
chewableok, I did that and got 3 options. my hard drive and my cd drive listed in this box in the middle of the screen01:09
chewableand the 3rd is the 2nd hard drive01:09
chewableafter selecting boot device on the screen, I get the same result (back to the initramfs shell). I'm reading that this problem is caused by the kernel upgrade?01:12
chewableduanedesign: it seems that typing "exit" and hitting enter resumes the boot -- so I guess this is solved. At least long enough to back up the files and then reinstall fresh to see if I can avoid this boot bug.01:17
chewableI'll go post the result and thanks01:18

duanedesigngood morning11:57
Silver_Fox_How are you duanedesign  ?12:02
duanedesigngood good12:02
Abhijeetkernel deleted accidently, how can i copy the packages from the damaged system using live cd or fresh innstallation please help me.12:30
Silver_Fox_Hello. As stated yesterday, try chroot.12:31
Silver_Fox_Did that not work for you?12:31
Silver_Fox_Was nobody in #ubuntu+1 able to help you ?12:32
Abhijeetsorry it didn't worked im planning the fresh innstallation , but before that i want to copy the packages which i had innstalled in it.12:33
JDE_Hi, I'm trying to install Ubuntu on a (currently dead) Windows laptop, but will only be able to install to it's hard drive via another PC. Any ideas on how to do this?12:35
geirhaIt can't boot a CD or USB?12:39
Abhijeeti was entered in the #ubuntu+1 but it was flooded , no one helped me.I have decided to install it freshly.But i want to get back the softwares which i had installed in the system, becuase i worked very hard for installing google earth , picasa 3.8, vuze and many more softwares.12:39
ubot2Ubuntu can be installed in lots of ways. Please see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation for documentation. Problems during install? See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/CommonProblemsInstall - Don't want to use a CD? See http://tinyurl.com/3exghs - See also !automate12:39
JDE_The dead laptop says that it can't install from the CD (the usual download method), and won't boot into Windows to try Wubi or anything. Typical PC. lol12:40
JDE_Just to actually answer the question, no, it won't boot from the CD12:42
Silver_Fox_<Abhijeet> please help me to get back the packages from the damages system.12:43
geirhaJDE_: Then how did windows get installed?12:44
JDE_Windows was on the laptop before from ages ago, but got corrupted and won't boot. That's why I want to change to Linux12:46
philinuxAbhijeet: In the chroot you can just install the missing kernel.12:47
geirhaJDE_: I've never heard of a laptop that has a CD drive that can't boot from CD, so that's a bit baffling. Do you know if it can boot PXE?12:47
JDE_Geirha: At the moment, I have a clean, empty hard drive on my desk, but no way of knowing how to install to it without affecting the setup of another PC12:47
philinuxAbhijeet: or just run update-grub if it has not been purged.12:48
geirhaJDE_: Oh, and you want to install ubuntu on that, then put it in the laptop?12:48
geirhaJDE_: Ah, well then you just need to connect it to a computer where you can boot the CD and install Ubuntu on that drive.12:49
geirhaJDE_: However, on the last step of the installer12:49
geirhaThere's an Advanced button. You need to click that to get the options on where to install the boot loader.12:49
JDE_Oh, OK.12:50
geirhaMake sure you change that to install the bootloader to the same harddrive12:50
Abhijeetno i have tried many  times , therefore i have decided to install ubuntu freshly. please help me about how i can copy  the packages in the fresh installation , the required libraries or as a whole packages including the required packages12:50
geirhaThe default is to install the bootloader on the "main" disk, regardless of which disk you install Ubuntu on12:50
JDE_OK, that sounds easier than I was expecting!12:50
Abhijeetsorry read it as 'required packages including the libraries'12:50
JDE_Geirha: Thanks for the help, I was just expecting a little more fuss after using Windows for so long!12:52
philinuxAbhijeet: Just one link from google "ubuntu backup installed packages" . https://help.ubuntu.com/community/InstallingSoftware#Backup/Restore%20installed%20packages12:55

Talib_k. I consider myself a windows power user trying to learn linux with Ubuntu and have 3 questions...15:13

Talib_2) I install build-essentials via apt-get, where are the files installed?15:14
