corinthI think my package manager is broken - fresh install. Any help?01:20
ArchangelSe7enwhat makes you think it's broken ?01:21
ArchangelSe7ensorry , b0rked01:21
corinthRight, b0rked.01:21
corinthWell, I can install any packages, or download any packages.01:22
ArchangelSe7endefine "can't" , does it return any error messages ?01:22
corinthYep. http://pastebin.com/wksXDZeV01:22
ArchangelSe7enhm .. I've seen that issue like a gazillion times , I cant be of help sorry01:24
corinthYikes. Thanks, anyway.01:24
ArchangelSe7enthough I suggest checking that ISO for defects01:24
corinthI actually used Wubi.01:24
ArchangelSe7enWubi? yuck01:24
ArchangelSe7enthat explains it01:24
corinthNo it doesn't. :-P01:24
ArchangelSe7ennever been of fan of it frankly01:25
corinthHate if you want, but I have multiple Wubi installs on office machiens that work beautifully01:25
ArchangelSe7enthis one doesnt seem perfect though :P01:25
yofelcorinth: run 'sudo rm /var/lib/apt/lists/archive.ubuntu.com_ubuntu_dists_natty_main_binary-amd64_Packages' and try again01:25
ArchangelSe7enan "actual" install is suggested01:26
ArchangelSe7enor try yofel 's suggestion :P01:26
yofelstuff in /var/lib/apt/lists is generated by apt-get update, so removing them is ok01:26
yofelI've forgotten though why apt errors out there01:27
corinthyofel: I did that, now I'm doing an apt-get update. Doesn't look good. I'll post the output to a pastebin in a moment.01:27
corinthyorfel: http://pastebin.com/qejuQE2J01:30
yofelcorinth: @_@ - never seen that yet. as for the last one run 'sudo rm /var/lib/apt/lists/* '01:32
corinthI know, it's a pickle of a problem. Heh.01:32
corinthOk. I did that. Still the same problem.01:33
corinthIs there a way to reconfigure the package mangager, like with dpkg or something? Or am I talking nonsense? >_>01:33
yofelcorinth: can you try a different mirror?01:35
corinthI've already tried that. I switched from the US mirror to the main.01:36
yofeland this isn't a dpkg problem, but apt somehow can't download the lists right and they seem to end up corrupt01:36

LINKSWORD2Hey guys, I'm having trouble installing Kubuntu on an HP Pavilion laptop.03:14
LINKSWORD2Somebody mind walking through it with me?03:15
LINKSWORD2Who the heck is Bueller?03:52
bazhang!details | LINKSWORD203:52
ubottuLINKSWORD2: Please give us full details. For example: "I have a problem with ..., I'm running Ubuntu version .... When I try to do ..., I get the following output: ..., but I expected it to do ..."03:52
LINKSWORD2I've put the CD for Kubuntu 10.10 into the disc drive for this HP Pavilion dv1000 I'm working on, and it seems to load up. Then the disc drive slows down and the screen comes up with Process 232: GLib-Warning: Unknown User ID.03:55
bazhangLINKSWORD2, md5 the iso yet? burn at very low speed and do the disk integrity check?03:55
LINKSWORD2I know the disk works because I've used it to install on this system I'm running right now, an ancient Compaq Presario desktop.03:56
bazhangthen try some bootoptions, or use the alternate installer03:57
bazhang!bootoptions > LINKSWORD203:57
ubottuLINKSWORD2, please see my private message03:57
bazhang!alternate | LINKSWORD203:57
ubottuLINKSWORD2: The Alternate CD is a classical text-mode install CD. It supports a wider range of hardware than the !LiveCD, and can also be used as an upgrade CD.  Look for the alternate checkbox on the Kubuntu download page - See also !minimal03:57
LINKSWORD2Are the language packs necessary?03:58
bazhangnecessary for what?03:59
LINKSWORD2Or can I prevent them from installing?03:59
LINKSWORD2I would hope that most people in the USA know English.... Especially my friend I'm installing this for.04:00
LINKSWORD2Would I be able to prevent Kubuntu from installing additional and unnecessary language packs?04:00
bazhangdont see how that relates to your initial problem04:00
DaskreechLINKSWORD2: If your friend knows enough english to get to the package manager then the language packs are not needed04:00
LINKSWORD2We both natively speak English. xD04:01
draikYou both finally speak English?04:02
LINKSWORD2... /me ignores draik's comment.04:02
bazhangLINKSWORD2, did you have any actual other support questions?04:02
LINKSWORD2Finally got to where I can get Kubuntu installed.04:03
LINKSWORD2I may have questions about wireless connectivity, in about an hour.04:03
DaskreechLINKSWORD2: kk04:09

markitcorinth: if you select "maximize panel"?19:03

yofelhm, looking23:55
soeeyofel, if i turn it off all works smooth23:55
yofelthen it's either a driver issue or kwin23:55

yofelno idea what the animations setting is about though23:57
