Unit193!usb | gnewb04:41
ubot5gnewb: For information about installing Ubuntu from USB flash drives, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/FromUSBStick - For a persistent live USB install, see: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/LiveUsbPendrivePersistent04:41
gnewbThank you.04:41
Unit193No problem!04:41
gnewbUnit93: That is where I was having the error at, I think it was Finalizing?04:42
gnewbUnit93: Was also a UC3 part on it, can I just get rid of that?04:45
gnewbOh, ok, I just found that on that Link posted, Thank you kindly.04:46
bioterror booted a cd and installed on a usb stick05:27
ericyAs we speak, I am running Lubuntu 10.10 Live & persistent, on a  4GB usb stick. (Using 500GB HDD for data and various linux partitions.)05:39
ericygnewb: (See my last line.)05:41
Unit193ericy: gnewb left #lubuntu some time ago05:43
maliheya... I was here the other day and speaking about helping out, I said if I get around o it I could/would :p05:47
malibut anyway.. I after testing, thinking, trying and all that, think I will settle on *buntu as main desktop.. and will use lubuntu BUT I admit , it is because I wish to have a low resource finished wm.. but also I wish to build up my 'main' DE, being pure compiz + a few things from lxde, kde, and so on.05:48
maliwould you guys recommend a headless ubuntu server to start with or run it on lubuntu (I don't mind the extra space of having lxde/compiz).. and finally.. does lxde work fine on openbox too, and/or why is fluxbox chosen as it's wm?05:49
maliif anyone is around, that is :)05:49
bioterrormali, ubuntu mini.iso06:19
bioterrorminimal installation06:19
malibioterror: !!!!06:20
malithank you omg I am downloading the server now and am wee[ping at the 600 :p06:20
malididn't ever rememebr seeing a mini.iso :)06:20
maliye coudl only find desk, server, altenrate06:23
bioterrorHave fun with creating your own flavour of *buntu06:23
maliwell, I will pull in compiz say06:23
bioterrormy desktop is part of LXDE and part of XFCE on Window Maker06:23
maliI guess the lovely auto mount features are all not gonna be there ;P06:24
bioterrormy laptop has pieces of Gnome, LXDE and XFCE on Fluxbox06:24
maliwindow maker == twm or not? I don't rememebr now.. but06:24
malitwm is my oldskool wm from you know the 99-00 era :p06:24
maliI use it always when i test X06:24
maliand it is remarkable how lovely implemented it is on logic06:25
bioterrortwm should be the default Window Manager of X06:25
bioterrorif I remember right06:25
malismack it down where you need it, resize it, easy minimisation, dead small footprint06:25
bioterrorand you get automount easily06:25
bioterrorat least I have them ;)06:25
malias one know.. everything else is eyecandy really so if one isn't bothered it's a great gui on top of a server say if you absolutely need it in days of visual need06:25
maliyes.. ah isn't window maker the same then?06:26
malihmm, I will look it up as I knwo I used them all back in the day06:26
maliye bioterror: easy and easy, when I try building on top of a lfs or something, I never get the automount's easily setup , at least not with the right RW rights06:26
malibut that's just a lil scrip there and there and should work itself out I guess06:27
maliso if I want to launch the mini.iso from disk, does it use generic names vmlinuz/initrd.img or does it append the kernel version buntu style?06:27
mali(nvm, I will figure that out now it's dl)06:29
maliha! windowmaker.. i got curious now..you know, the only reason I want to have compiz as the engine is for that silly middle mouse click drag cube :p06:31
malithat is the single one thing I love having as eye candy06:31
bioterrorI dont need them06:31
bioterrormakes me feel bad as I change desktops alot06:31
maliall other things to me are unnecessary but I admit I have a weakness for that cube.. can't help it :/06:31
malifor what?06:31
malifor changing and trying.. that's the beauty of the diversity of linux06:31
malichoice :)06:31
maliI tend to stick to something for a year at least but then I tend to have like a month or two of mayhem06:32
maliwhenre I just try out so many different things and tent to fall back on something .. at least I know more what I want and what not06:32
bioterrorhttp://ricecows.org/archhh4.png that's my desktop computer's desktop. beautiful I think. no need for moar eye candy06:33
maliwill check it now.. blah start up creator doesn't accept the mini iso06:37
malican I just dd it?06:37
bioterroronly arch based distros can be dd06:38
maliwell I did dd with squeeze net instl and it worked too :)06:38
maliso I thought debian/ubuntu06:38
malibut ye, both arch and squeeze i managed str8 dd06:38
malidso I do what (z)cat or rsync06:39
malithen get syslinux etc from ftp or?06:39
malivery nice bioterror06:40
malibut on arch I get so much megalahem mayhem haha, I feel like going ubu bare, compiz only and I will compile the odd package I need updated06:41
bioterrorif you compile yourself, remember to use checkinstall ;)06:41
malialthoguh arch = easiest, quickest install ever + grt boot times, but in arch I typically always have this hassle with06:42
maliwith write perimssions on auotmounts and all06:42
maliye, I know06:42
bioterrorno problems06:42
maliI found checkinstall and all that a week back06:42
bioterrorexec ck-launch-session dbus-launch wmaker06:42
bioterrorand you get permissions with thunar06:42
maliye I wasn't using thunar06:43
malitried pcmanfm06:43
maliand was using dolphin as well whilst troubleshooting compiz06:43
malithe thing is with arch, I am somewhat unrelaxed about security with rolling release + non signatures on packages06:44
malibut I am getting a new computer in august, even if this one is onl 4 months old :p but then I think I will use arch for my funbox06:44
malias it will be sooo juicy I think06:44
malihmm will unetbootin work then with it.. should do right? will try06:45
bioterrorunetbootin should work06:46
maliwell if I am not back soon it means I am pissin about with that and it worked.. else prolly iwll pop by and say "blah"06:47
malithanks for the tips !06:47
malihehe ye I forgot to sasve the compiz configuration crap when I get to that06:50
malimight try the windowmaker as an option as I wanted lubuntu, cos I don't mind a lightweight alternative but point is comp can handle bloat.. but I like it being concise BUT i want that middle mouse click drag cube rotate :P:P06:51
malithe ONE eye candy I like and want!06:51
maliyou use cli itrc or gui?06:51
malieg. weechat or other?06:51
bioterrorI'm using weechat06:51
malias gui client I like06:51
bioterrorand it makes me cry atm.06:51
maliye.. I was just looking into that06:51
bioterrorI upgraded it yesterday and eeeverything was broken06:52
maliah crap :/06:52
bioterrorI still cant connect to two servers with SSL06:52
malino backup files?06:52
