nikolamwhen I kill xfdesktop , it gets back then13:59
nikolami don't know why it is started, eather14:00
nikolamand now, when I kill nautilus it gets back on the screen etc14:00
Sysibecause you have it installed14:00
nikolamso I had it installed in 9.10 and it was not always active then14:01
nikolamthere are gnome secvices turned on in xfce settings, btw14:01
nikolamI guess it is there to be able to start gnome dependent applications a bit faster14:02
elfoniahow can i change my desktop wallpaper with openbox? thanks.14:19
mark76Isn't that more a question for the openbox irc channel?14:29
mark76Which is at irc.oftc.net14:29
mark76I'd use Feh or Nitrogen14:30
bazhangyep feh14:30

mark76Nitrogen has a nice GUI14:33
bazhangelfonia, ^^14:33
elfoniathanks, i'll try14:34
mark76Or you could use PCMAnFM or Rox-Filer to set the background14:35

Sysii installed it15:56
charlie-tcaSince the TERM variable is getting lost, all you need is to set the variable and it works fine again15:57
Sysiit can't still start ssh-command from panel15:57
charlie-tcaI don't how to make aptitude work, I think I used it three times now in 5 years15:58
Sysii think i'll go back to lucid in this "productive machine"15:59
Sysiinstaller was nice16:06

Adriasilhi there.20:29
AdriasilI'm trying to install Xubuntu 10.04, but I am getting an error message...20:30
Adriasilit reads:20:30
Adriasil"unable to find a medium containing a live file system"20:30
AdriasilI'm just wondering what this means and how I can fix it....20:31
charlie-tcait's not seeing the cd20:31
Sysihow are you trying to install?20:31
Adriasilfrom the cd.20:31
Adriasilit won't even go into live mode20:31
Sysidid you check the cd?20:32
Adriasilwhat do you mean?20:32
Adriasildid I verify after I burnt it?20:32
Adriasilif so, yes.20:32
Sysithere's option in meny when you boot20:33
Sysibut that can be the same20:33
AdriasilI shall try that.20:33
Adriasilnow, when I tried doing a live boot all I got was slightly corrupted text saying Xubuntu....20:34
Adriasilcould this be a sign that the disc is corrupted/20:34
AdriasilI'm going to start re-downloading then.20:36
charlie-tcaIt might be just a bad burn, too20:36
Adriasilcould be, but I'm using Toast Titanium, so it really shouldn't be20:38
* Adriasil goes to get his stack of blank CDs.20:38
Adriasilah, how I love the white cursor of doom.20:39
* charlie-tca has one system will burn bad cd's everytime it is used.20:39
Adriasiloooooooooooh... that's rough.20:39
Sysiis usb boot possible?20:39
Adriasilhold on one moment.20:40
* Adriasil found a memory stick!20:42
Adriasilso how do I usb boot?20:43
Sysiput image to fat32 formatted usb-stick with usb-creator or unetbootin20:45
Adriasilare ther any programs that will do that for mac?20:52
Adriasilokay I've re-DLed it and re-burnt it.21:25
Adriasilsomething is starting to happen now.21:25
AdriasilI"ve got the white cursor of doom again.21:25
charlie-tcaI don't know what that is21:25
Adriasillet's see if it can get past this.21:25
Adriasilbasically my whole screen is black, nope.21:26
AdriasilI've just got the weird looking corrupted-ish image.21:26
charlie-tcacan you switch to a tty with ctrl+alt+F2?21:26
charlie-tcaa different terminal21:27
Adriasilpressed it anyways.21:27
Adriasilback to the terminal.21:27
Adriasilsame message again.21:27
Adriasilwow. this is getting old quick.21:28
Adriasil"unable to find a medium containing a live file system"21:28
=== MichealH is now known as evilMichealH
=== evilMichealH is now known as MichealH
Adriasilis it possible to turn error reporting on?21:45
charlie-tcaHave you tried hitting F4 at the menu, and choosing Safe Graphics?21:46
charlie-tcaYou can hit F6 at the menu, then ESCape. then add debug-ubiquity at the end of the line21:47
charlie-tcahit enter, hit enter again to start the install21:47
AdriasilI shall try that.21:47
charlie-tcaYou can also use F6 to show the line, remove "quiet splash" from it to see what is happening21:47
AdriasilI odn't have any of those options.21:50
AdriasilF4 only brings up:21:51
AdriasilUse driver update disc and OEM install (for manufacturers)21:51
Adriasiloh, I see where quiet splash is now.21:52
AdriasilI'll try that.21:54
AdriasilI'm getting a lot of "ata#: link is slow to respond"21:56
Adriasilline 7" can't open /dev/sr0: No medium founf.21:57
Adriasil*line 7:21:58
Adriasil /init: line 7: can't open /dev/sr0: No medium found21:58
Adriasiland that's where it's going wrong.21:58
Sysiare you sure cd-drive is working?21:59
AdriasilI think so.21:59
Adriasilbecause it's detected by my BIOS now.21:59
Adriasilmy slave drives are still mysteriously MIA.22:00
charlie-tcaThose errors are a hardware malfunction22:01
Adriasilhmmmmm.... okay.22:01
AdriasilI'll try switching drives,22:01
Adriasilhow do you wipe a Hard Drive?22:12
phil42dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/whichdrive bs=1M22:12
charlie-tcaI just tell it to erase the hard drive and install new on it during the installation22:13
phil42where 'whichdrive' = the drive that you want to wipe22:13
Adriasilbecause it seems like there is a very broken version of windows on one of these HDs.22:13
phil42it would be safer to wipe the appropriate partition, rather than the entire drive22:14
Adriasilcould that be messing with the installation at all?22:14
Adriasilthis seems faster.22:16
phil42if you specifed something other than a drive for 'whichdrive' you will fill your disk with a file made of all zeroes22:17
Adriasilthat seemed really fast for some reason....22:17
AdriasilI have hope after all.22:17
phil42oops,  not true on that last comment,  /dev/ is now a ramdisk22:17
phil42sort of22:18
AdriasilI don't think I'm even close to being able to do this.22:18
AdriasilI'm just trying to get the damn thing to run live.22:18
phil42running live is easy22:19
Adriasilthese are different messages from what I got last time....22:19
Adriasilpsh. says you.22:19
phil42as in 'live cd' , right?22:20
AdriasilI've been tring to get it to work for 5hrs so far.22:20
phil42can you boot from the cd?22:20
Adriasilthat's what I've been tring to do.22:20
phil42do you get asked for the appropriate language when it boots?22:21
AdriasilI get the selection screen, but can't get past anything after that.22:21
phil42then do you get a list of about 5 choices, the top on being, try xubutu ?22:21
phil42do you select the first option?22:22
phil42what happens then?22:22
Adriasilbut when I select try or install, I'm greeted by a corrupted image and then a terminal cursor.22:22
Adriasilafter about 5-10mins.22:22
phil42how much memory do you have?22:22
AdriasilI've just changed CD drives.22:22
Adriasilso, I have enough.22:23
Adriasilnot a lot, but enough.22:23
phil42it is a little slim for running live22:23
phil42do you have an operating system installed that you want to preserve?22:24
Adriasilif this doesn't work maybe I'll just try selecting install next, and seeing what happens.22:24
AdriasilI'm trying to set up a server.22:24
Adriasiland so far it's not going great.22:24
phil42what kind of processor do you have?22:24
AdriasilIntel ummmm.... pentium, maybe.22:24
Adriasilit's 1.45GHz22:24
phil42why not try knoppix first, just to check22:25
Adriasilit's either pentium or celeron.22:25
phil42it is specifically a live cd distro and made to be super compatible22:25
Adriasilmy install has stalled on "Trying to unpack rootfs image as initramfs"22:26
Adriasilwhich is at least different from last time.....22:27
phil42^^^^^^   /me points to where it says 'kernel.org'22:28
AdriasilDLing now.22:28
Adriasilon a slightly related subject you wouldn't happen to know why my slave drives aren't being detected, would you?22:31
phil42detected by???  the bios?22:31
phil42i read that your system is kind of old,  they might be too big or something.  knoppix or xubuntu might find them22:32
Adriasilokay, we'll see what happens.22:32
phil42do you have them jumpered correctly ?22:32
Adriasilthe BIOS is from the late 90s.22:32
charlie-tcaAre they connected with the 80 pin cables?22:33
Adriasilnope, 40.22:33
charlie-tcaYou need the new cables, then. If you have the old IDE cables instead of the new ones, that can make them disappear now. Old cable has black connectors on both ends, and heavy wires.22:34
charlie-tcaNew one usually has a blue end, and really thin wires22:34
Adriasilokay, I'll have a look into that.22:35
charlie-tcaNew ones are called ata-100 cables or something like that22:36
Adriasilare they reverse compatible?22:38
phil42you can use the new cable instead of the old one22:39
phil42using the old cable when you need the new one can cause probles22:39
Adriasillooks like they're pretty cheap anyways.22:40
phil42your bios might be old enough that it does not use the drives fast enough to need the new cables22:40
charlie-tcaYou need the new cables for the OS to work, even if you don't have ata100+ drives22:41
phil42when you try xubuntu again press escape instead of selecting from the short list.  when you get to the boot prompt enter 'live'22:44
phil42you will get more information that way22:44
phil42np  :)22:46
charlie-tcaAdriasil: I guess the pins are the same in both cables, but one has twice as many wires in the cable itself.22:46
Adriasilfor now though, I think I shall get some sleep and resume in the morning.22:46
phil42and the extra wires are all grounds22:46
charlie-tcaAre they?22:46
charlie-tcaKind of frustrating, when it work because of the stupid cable22:47
Adriasilyou're telling me.... :D22:47
Adriasilokay, bye all.22:48
phil42let us know how it works out22:48
AdriasilI shall.22:48
AdriasilI'll probably be back to pester you tomorrow :D22:48
phil42i was kind of hoping to find out what his problem actually is22:52
charlie-tcahardware is failing, the cd boots and then gets lost22:53
basti_hey, great work on 10.0423:23
basti_running just fine now...23:23
