r4y>I plan on installing Ubuntu 10.04, how should I go about marking bad sectors with something from here: http://support.wdc.com/ or with the live cd of Ubuntu?, or both?02:56
r4yDid my post show up, or should I repost?02:58
urlin2uit shows, I have never seen advice to do this I think you are probably on your own here03:00
r4yI am going to assume that because it says it requires Windows that I should somehow use the live CD of Ubuntu to mark the bad sectors before installing.03:01
r4yGoogle it is03:02
urlin2uare you sure there are bad sectors?03:02
r4yWell Disk Utility says so03:02
r4yBut it could be a bug03:02
r4yI don't know03:03
r4yI have just recently downloaded 10.04.3 instead of the other I was using03:03
r4ySorry I meant 10.10 not 10.04, but I am going to install 10.04.3, not 10.0403:04
r4yI have read this before:03:06
r4yKeep in mind, all disks have some bad sectors, so as with all data important, back up03:06
r4yEven new hard drives have bad sectors03:07
r4yIt's just a question of how bad03:07
urlin2ua regular ubuntu install will not use bad sectors just install and pray it doesn't break overlal03:07
r4yright, well, I am going to Google this for a while because it couldn't hurt. I remember reading that there is an advanced option for this but I have read a lot of things that aren't true or change from version to version03:08
urlin2uhere is a link, but the deal is really that I would estimate 99% of the users you run into will say since HD are so cheap get a new one it just comes down to you being able to do it. http://www.ehow.com/how_6864409_fix-bad-sectors-ubuntu.html03:09
urlin2uyou could map it out and have it fail on the next boot .03:09
r4yBeing backed is very important03:10
r4ythank you for the links03:10
r4yI remember low level format being what to do03:11
r4yI am already backed up by the way03:11
urlin2uthats good I clone everything and have the stuff I can't loose backed up.03:14
r4yI went back to the first link I posted for the heck of it:03:19
r4yI am not sure if I want to go with any of those downloads03:19
r4yI think I would rather go with some other software that will mark the hard drive using a low level wipe, but what software is free for this?03:22
ashickur-noorhow can I  video chat using yahoo protocol in Ubuntu 10.10?03:33
holsteinthis might be relavant ashickur-noor https://lists.ubuntu.com/archives/ubuntu-bd/2008-December/002682.html03:35
r4yHello holstein. I am wondering if hirens or UBCD can do a low level format on a hard drive I have here. It's a WD Caviar Blue model WD3200JBRTL03:38
holsteinr4y: dont see why not03:38
holsteini havent used hirens though03:38
holsteinsure... ive used UBCD and gparted from live CD's on PATA03:38
r4yI don't see Sata written on the box03:39
r4yOK, I need a guide for this. Any links for what I should use off of either CD?03:39
ashickur-noorholstein:  it is not good03:40
holsteinfor formatting? i would just load up gparted03:40
r4yI mean I am looking here:03:40

holsteinyahoo chat in ubuntu?03:40
holsteinwhats it take?.. a stand alone app?03:40
ashickur-noorya with video03:40
holsteinim only familiar with skype (loosely) and the gtalk one03:41
ashickur-noorI can chat but no video03:41
holsteinashickur-noor: in WINE?03:41
holsteinin the browser?03:41
holsteinhow are you chatting?03:41
r4yI used DBAN already. I want to do low format to have the bad sectors marked and remapped before I install Ubuntu 10.04.303:41
holsteini thought pidgin did yahoo with vid ashickur-noor ?03:41
ashickur-noornot works03:41
holsteinr4y: how many bad sectors?03:41
holsteinif its over the limit, it wont get much better03:41
holsteinif its clicking, i would just give up on it03:42
r4y80 some, I think, I can't remember03:42
holsteinashickur-noor: video doesnt work with pidgin?03:42
holsteinashickur-noor: have you tried wine?03:42
ashickur-noornot yet03:42
ashickur-noorWill try03:42
ashickur-noorneed to go now03:42
r4yWell, that's what this hard drive says which is 82, but for the hard drive I am going to install on, I can't remember how many sectors on that hard drive03:43
holsteina few bad ones is normal03:44
holsteinif you start seeing it in red in that disk utility.... you might want to consider moving on03:44
r4yRight, always make back ups, and even most new hard drives have bad sectors03:44
r4ywhat part red. Maybe I should just install Ubuntu and see what disk utility says after doing so03:45
r4yI read that when installing Ubuntu there is a way to have the live cd mark the bad sectors for install03:46

thewrathThe package was called "Privacy Protection"20:01
thewrathApparently my mom did not know the difference20:01
JackyAlcinethewrath: It happens, since they tend to replicate the system's look at times.20:01
