ubern00bHello! I'm having grub trouble. When I boot I get to a grub prompt, it says "grub>". How do I get it to boot Ubuntu?00:24
uchobbyNot an expert ubern00b, but I am looking it up for you.00:26
uchobbyhow did you end up at the prompt rather then booting?00:27
uchobbythere seems to be instructions about 2/3rd down under Command line, you are at the probt so skip to step 5.00:28
uchobbyI'm no expert, have only done simular thing once, but I would like to know how it goes for you00:29
duanedesignubern00b: yep the link uchobby popsted is a good one00:48
uchobbyhave not herd from ubern00b, wonder if he's trying00:49
aveilleuxuchobby: Evidently01:01
uchobbywhen you use VMWare, to run Ubuntu on Win7, and you have a shared dir setup, where does that show up in Ubuntu? I dont see the dir there.01:04
aveilleuxushobby: You have to connect to it. http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/ubuntu/how-to-share-folders-with-your-ubuntu-virtual-machine-guest/01:08

tcm5025anyone know how i could solve an issue with a blank screen at startup?02:32
stlsainttcm5025: blank screen as in no grub or ....?02:32
tcm5025well it's the only os on here, so i dunno if i'll see the grub screen02:33
tcm5025i had to d/l the alternate installer to be able to install the os at all02:33
tcm5025and now it just does the same thing it did when i tried to run the regular installer02:33
tcm5025it goes blank after the ubuntu logo comes up02:33
tcm5025got any idea??02:34
stlsainttcm5025: yea boot into the livecd and check to see if you are using xorg or not02:37
tcm5025what do you mean xorg?02:46
stlsaintshoudl be in /etc/X11/xorg.conf02:47
aveilleuxstlsaint, tcm5025: The newest version of Ubuntu doesn't use that anymore02:48
stlsaintaveilleux: true but he may need to02:51
aveilleuxstlsaint: xorg.conf is completely ignored now, to my knowledge.02:52
stlsaintaveilleux: what release of ubuntu are you referring to?02:53
aveilleuxstlsaint: 10.04. I've never been able to get an xorg.conf to stick.02:53
stlsaintaveilleux: well i have used it to trouble shoot 10.10 so i know it is still viable to 10.04 ;)02:54
stlsaintin 10.10 i had a video issue..by removing xorg i was able to get down to the generic driver and wait for the next major update to fix my nvidia issue02:55
stlsaintthats why i ask if xorg is there or not so if it causing issues you can move it to xorg.conf.old or .bak and let the generic driver come into play02:56
phillwaveilleux: IIR, xorg.conf is still read if it exists02:56
stlsaintaveilleux: ^^^02:56
phillwit is not auto generated, as most of the time it is no longer needed02:56

stlsaintaveilleux: thus it is still useful in some cases ^^02:58

taboc741I've been looking around and can't seam to find any pre-compiled drivers and software for the Clear usb modems.  Has anyone been terribly successful at getting ubuntu online via Clear?04:48
stlsainttaboc741: sorry i have not04:49
stlsainttaboc741: have you tried connecting via ethernet to the modem or is that what you are doing?04:49
taboc741well if i had the so called home modem that would work, but it's a usb modem (much like 3g service from att, except it's 4g from clear) wich required the software package and the driver for the wimax usb modem the software installs04:51
stlsainttaboc741: oh i see, have you been to their website to see about downloading a different version of the software?04:51
taboc741they've only released software (with drivers compiled into the software) for mac and windows04:52
stlsainttaboc741: yea that has been an issue with other usb internet providers04:53
taboc741i know mac osx is unix based as well is there a good util for importing mac software to linux?04:53
taboc741thanks a bunch i'll hit them up04:55
taboc741well it looks like they have a wimax stack, but since beecom won't release source for drivers they can't build drivers for my clear stick yet.05:03
tdnIs there any way to sort the output of du -sh? I know I can do: du -sm | sort -n, but is there any way to sort human readable sizes? I can not find anything on this in the man page of 'sort'.08:50
Red1i've just installed ubuntu 10.04 using wubi on a laptop with windows 7, but sometimes the mouse and the keyboard don't work. i can move the mouse, but i can't click anywhere but on the firefox icon10:05
Red1what can i do?10:06
suprengrRed1: are you using the touchpad on the laptop... and can you access the menus at all?10:23
Red1i'm using the touchpad. nothing but the firefox icon10:25
suprengrRed1: hover mouse over System menu and press ,enter..  Do same for: System -> Preferences -> Mouse and enable  touchpad 'tap to click' [or something similar]10:26
suprengrRed1: ...& check the other settings while you're there.10:27
Red1i've already enabled the 'tap to click' thing10:28
suprengrRed1: then you have access to more than firefox, surely?10:29
Red1when i'm in firefox i can use the mouse and click10:30
suprengrRed1: are you saying you can access anything when Firefox is open but not otherwise or that you can only access items in Firefox10:33
Red1only access items in Firefox10:33
suprengrRed1: [confused :/  ]10:33
suprengrRed1: how did you set 'tap to click' then... getting more confused here10:35
Red1i noticed the mouse doesn't work when  I put a USB flash drive in for the first time10:36
suprengrRed1: let's try another line here.  Can you right click ok on e.g. the desktop itself10:38
suprengrRed1: 1/ What is the laptop?  2/ Do you have mouse control at login / password screen?10:41
Red1hp dv6 2193/yes/yes10:42
suprengrRed1: ..and this only started since you plugged in the flash drive?  was all ok before the USB was attached?10:43
Red1yes, but then when i rebooted ubuntu and put in the flash drive everything worked fine10:46
Abhishek-17is it neccessory to update ubuntu 9.10 before upgrading it to 10.04 with an alternate cd?12:14
