BamBamno idea what u are talking about; anyway, I receive an error message, something about a Default UI and Configuration00:10
mongyBamBam, well I can create one, but it doesnt use the persistence part of it00:11
BamBamteoretically, when you use ubuntu to create a Boot Disk, it allows you to reserve some space to save personalisations, updates,etc00:12
mongybut not for this release, for me , yet00:13
BamBamok, then00:14

duanedesignI have over 100 packages that are being held back from upgrading. Seems like a lot, anyone else experiencing anything similar?12:44
wrstduanedesign: how are you upgrading?12:51
duanedesignwrst: sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get upgrade  Was curious if this was an issue unique to me or not13:00
duanedesignI usually run the updates everyday, but this time I went a week or so without running an update13:01
wrstduanedesign: could be some packages to be replaced such as openoffice with libre office, I generally do 'sudo apt-get dist-upgrade' that will replace packages too, of course also greater chance of messing thingsup but isn't that what running alpha is all about :)13:01
wrsti do dist-upgrade when using alpha13:02
wrstdist-upgrade from my understanding pulls in updates and also will add changing dependencies i think that is correct from the man page on it, so you probably have some dependencies that have changed13:04
ubottuA dist-upgrade will install new dependencies for packages already installed and may remove packages if they are no longer needed. Please see !upgrade for the proper way to upgrade to a new version of Ubuntu.13:05
twagerwrst: dist-upgrade -d will tell you all the upgrades you need you can then choose which ones you want13:05
wrsttwager: will that probably solve his issues of all the held back packages?13:06
twagerwrst: Dunno...I look at the upgrades then just blunder on.. :-)13:07
wrstha ha twager i must admit with alpha i expect to reinstall several times so i don't do much worrying13:08
twagerI do know that apt-get upgrade seems to install packages that the upgrader tell me are held back13:08
twagerI have never had to install Natty..If It fails I leave it for a couple of days then boot into a console and apt-upgrade it13:10
wrsti'm too impatient to wait that long :)13:11

Ian_Cornepenguin42: I don't even know what that switching thing is about14:17

nysosymhi there16:45
nysosymhow can i upgrade to natty?16:46
nysosymupdate-manager -c won't work16:46
yofel-d, not -c16:46
BluesKajnysosym, good luck16:47
nysosymthx, but why? :)16:47
penguin42remember, it is an alpha - it could eat your cat16:48
nysosymthats ok16:48
BluesKajnysosym, it should work ok, but there have been some probs with update manager16:48
nysosymubuntu is just for testing :)16:48
nysosymto have a look what the open source community does :D16:49
[lan3y]how do i enable wireless on natty? its labeled as disabled by hardware switch, and yes the switch is on, i dont know what to do now16:49
coz_nysosym,  what are you used to if not "open source" ?16:50
BluesKajnysosym, I have 2 pcs running natty .. a few small probs , but overall quite stable16:50
coz_nysosym,  same here16:50
[lan3y]its worked before on natty, so its a recent change somewhere :/16:50
nysosymit's a shame, that i can't get ubuntu to work with my new macbook pro :/16:51
nysosymlive cd shows me just an empty window16:51
BluesKaj[lan3y], gnome nm-applet ?16:52
coz_nysosym,   I cant help with that  .. I stopped using mac at 9.x16:52
[lan3y]Blueskaj, yeah thats whats saying its disabled16:52
[lan3y]i've run nm-tool in terminal and it says wlan0 iwl3945 state:unavailable16:53
nysosymas far as i can see, ubuntu comes closer to mac, design wise :D16:53
BluesKaj[lan3y], in the terminal run ifconfig , then pastebin the output pls16:53
[lan3y]could be tricky without a net connection on it though16:54
[lan3y]theres no wlan in ifconfig, if thats important?16:54
BluesKajyup, that's important16:54
[lan3y]ok what do i need to do now?16:54
BluesKajremove network manager and reinstall it , that worked for my USB wifi adapter ..however I had to use wicd after the latest upgrade , nm just would not connect16:57
BluesKajnm reinstall might work for you [lan3y]16:58
[lan3y]how do i fetch the archive to install though?16:58
BluesKaj[lan3y], if you have network access with ethernet16:59
[lan3y]i have another machine (this one) and a usb drive, anywhere i can grab the deb file?16:59
BluesKajyou can download wicd to the usb drive and copy it17:01
BluesKaj[lan3y], if you decide o wicd , then there's no need to remove nm , wicd install disables gnome-nm17:03
[lan3y]ill grab both debs anyway17:04
BluesKaj[lan3y], try this first  sudo iwlist wlan0 scan17:05
[lan3y]doesn't support scanning, network is  down17:08
[lan3y]ugh forgot network-manager-gnome17:10
[lan3y]so ive reinstalled now what?17:15
sdahi all, i have a question, I love search\program graphic of ub11.04 and i want it on my normal gnome. How can I do? (this one http://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2011/01/unity-2d-apps.png)17:27
[lan3y]BluesKaj, reinstalling + reboot = no change17:29
[lan3y]it says im in flight mode17:30
[lan3y]if that helps17:30

penguin42is anyone getting bogus values from the 'head flying hours' in smartctl -a ?18:38
penguin42mine is saying 241643450010053, which is about 27B years18:39
Ian_CorneRROR: smartctl requires a device name as the final command-line argument.18:46
Ian_CorneI have no idea what it does18:46
Ian_Cornebut i can't run smartctl -a :p18:46
penguin42it checks the errors from a hard drive, so typically smartctl -a /dev/sda18:50
