silverarrowoh , a bit tricky00:02
phillwsilverarrow: you should not need to do this :(00:03
silverarrowmaybe it's something else then, but something is failing00:03
phillw11.04 installs fine. Have you checked the md5?00:04
silverarrowno md5?00:04
phillwconfusious say, when in doubt with install, always check md5 else will be up creek with no paddle00:05
silverarrowtrouble is I am not yet too good with tricky stuff00:06
phillwsilverarrow: ensure your download and install media is okay - Or else we going to be banging our heads off the brick wall!00:07
silverarrowthere should be a course on linux some where lol00:07
silverarrowI have ran the basic "test CD "00:07
phillwsilverarrow: on the install CD, there is a 'test me' ... run it :D00:07
silverarrowyou know, as one of the options during CD boot00:08
silverarrowI have done that00:08
phillwokay, then the CD is good.00:08
silverarrowit comes out fine00:08
silverarrowand next would be install without dowloading packages00:09
phillwsilverarrow: nope, run it as 'try without installing' - slow, I know, but it will confirm the little critter is okay.00:10
silverarrowit works fine as live CD too00:10
silverarrowI go online fine, it detects harddisk, runs applications00:10
phillwthen, yes, without downloading will be te next step.00:10
phillw*be the next*00:11
silverarrowright now I have managed to install and have done the first initial booting, but with the downloadings00:11
silverarrow...then for the reinstallation00:12
silverarrowsee you later perhaps, or something :- )00:12
phillwdo not do the downloads... just put the virgin system on.00:12
silverarrowgot it00:13

bioterrorusually you born .iso files if you want to boot them05:59
bioterrorborn :D05:59
silverarrow...how to identify05:59
bioterrorif you want to make regular data cd, then you burn whole folders05:59
silverarrowwell, I want fix grub06:01
silverarrownever mind, I shall take a chance on one of them06:01
silverarrowtwo potential choises; one folder "live" or "isolinux"06:06
silverarrowonly 10.000 steps to read through to figure things out06:08
silverarrowany suggestions on how to go about this?06:13

bioterrornow you just need to understand how that program works :D06:43
silverarrowyeah, but a bit easier to fiddle around with than termnial06:44
silverarrowthanks for the rescatux tip06:44
silverarrowthanks bioterror07:31
silverarrowcomputer booted fine after rescatex07:31
silverarrowrescatux works idiotproofly07:32
silverarrowI have a suspicion it was grub error all along07:33
silverarroweven the first booting trouble I had07:33
silverarrowI was on a wild goose chaise for hard ware failure, hard ware incompatibilities, system brake down07:34
silverarrowit turns out grub errors can make hard drive undetectable at boot up07:35
phillwbioterror: seems like a bug related to os-prober? I thought that was sorted?07:53
bioterrorI dont think so07:53
phillwbioterror: it is on https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Lubuntu/Documentation/FAQ is it still an outstanding bug? I thought it had been resolved in a bug fix?07:57
phillwbioterror: os-prober?07:58
bioterrorit should be resolved08:00
phillwbioterror: Note: This issue existed in 10.10 but should no longer occur in Lubuntu 11.04.08:02
bioterrorshould not08:02
bioterrorI'm not judging the fix with single case08:02
phillwis it still a problem?08:02
silverarrowso, how do I get any sound in lubuntu?09:06

silverarrowsomeone recommended a disc checking tool the other day, but I cannot find it again googleing for it13:28
silverarrowI finally figured out how to burn on the mac13:28
avelldirollsilverarrow: i believe it was me speaking about the UBCD: http://www.ultimatebootcd.com13:29
silverarrowoh, thanks13:30
silverarrowI have to get to the bottom of this trouble13:30
silverarrowI booted in Fedora, because it has a inbuilt disk check application, but I don't know how good it is13:31
silverarrowthe ultimate cd looks very promising13:53
KM0201what is it?13:54
silverarrowoh sorry13:54
silverarrowultimate boot cd13:55
silverarrowit a bootable cd that checks just about everything on the computer,13:55
silverarrowcpu, hard disk, ....13:55
silverarrowI didn't even know there was such a tool until a couple of days ago13:57
silverarrowor perhaps it was yesterday13:57
avelldirollit mainly provide all the manufacturers'  checking tools in one nice bunde, no need to dig some obnoxious manufacturer website in search for the right tool to check your warranty13:58
silverarrow:- )14:01
silverarrowon the mac dowload is really messed up14:16
silverarrowof the ultimate boot cd I mean14:17
silverarrowhere on the lubuntu, and in chromium, download link is easily  visible14:17
silverarrowin the mac, in safari, there are tons of commercials where the download starter link should be14:18
silverarrowmajor hassle to find a working mirror14:18
silverarrowavelldiroll, how did you burn the ubcd?14:41
silverarrowI have trouble choosing the correct iso image14:42
silverarrowrather a daunting task choosing the right folder14:43
silverarrowhow do I identify the correct folder to burn to CD?14:49
silverarrowdo I burn the whole download thing to CD?14:49
silverarrowthere's tons of FAQ on the UBCD homepage, but darn little on these details14:51
silverarrownothing at all actually14:51
silverarrowidentify silverlightning14:52
silverarrowhi pip15:02
silverarrowbut seriously, any tip on burning iso images, on how to identify correct folders?15:12
