kristian-aalborgI was thinking of something... can I have a menu for different sessions when I boot up18:58
kristian-aalborgfor instance: 1) run gnome session --- 2) run cli session with program A --- 3) run cli session with program B ?18:59
* kristian-aalborg thinks aloud... this could be done in bash + dialog, hurm...?19:18
hggdhkristian-aalborg, you already have something like that on GDM -- you can select to run Gnome, or an X term, etc19:42
kristian-aalborghggdh: gdm is too heavy19:46
hggdhkristian-aalborg, there is XFCE, for example (Xubuntu), and other WMs as options19:47
kristian-aalborgI was thinking something as light as possible19:47
kristian-aalborgthere's a thing called quingy, I think... that might fit the job19:48
kristian-aalborgah - SLIM will be fine, I think19:48
kristian-aalborgalso that one is rather easy to work with19:48
KinkyPinkieanyone know a good tool to defragment and partition an external drive?20:50
head_victimKinkyPinkie: use a livecd with gparted on it for partitioning and fsck is a good file system checking tool.20:51
KinkyPinkiegparted doesn't seem to recognise my drive20:51
holsteinKinkyPinkie: maybe its dead?20:52
holsteinin a terminal20:52
holsteinsudo fdisk -l20:52
holsteinKinkyPinkie: have you used gparted before?20:52
holsteintheres a drop down in the upper right20:52
holsteinwhere you choose the drive*20:52
KinkyPinkiei'll just try some more googling. thanks anyway :)20:53
holsteinwell, i would think google will say gparted20:53
holsteinwhat do you get when you run sudo fdisk -l?20:54
holsteindo you see the drive?20:54
hggdhwell, one must specify the disk on fdisk: 'fdisk /dev/sda'21:04
holsteini was going for more of a list of what is mountable21:05
hggdheven on -l; also you will need root21:06
holsteinsudo fdisk -l ??21:07
holsteinfor me that just lists what the computer can see21:07
holsteinwhat would be mountable if its not mounted21:07
KinkyPinkieyea well i'm giving up on the defrag thing anyway, don't want to risc it with some home-made tool :P better boot to w7 (shoot me)21:07
holsteini dont know why gparted is not doing that though..21:08
KinkyPinkieand maybe things will work out after the restart21:08
holsteinhome-made tool ;)21:08
holsteindo what makes you feel safe :)21:08
kristian-aalborghi holstein21:47
kristian-aalborgwould anybody have a .nanorc file that's good for prose?21:47
