diatomaceousHi everyone.  I have a dell precision M6600 and I'm using the open-source radeon drivers.  Unfortunately, I seem to having problems with booting and shutting down.. every other time or so (it's not perfectly consistent), the system just hangs.  When booting, it'll get to the purple background, then freak out, then just go black.  When shutting down, the ubuntu logo will be there and the dots will be moving, then suddenly they just stop and rem15:03
diatomaceousIn both cases I have to do a hard reset with my power button.15:03
holsteindiatomaceous: do you have TTY when the 'crash' happens ?15:08
holsteini would try the proprietary drivers15:08
holsteindiatomaceous: http://paste.ubuntu.com/747113/15:14
diatomaceousholstein: thank you.  I have tried the proprietary drivers.  Unfortunately there are rendering artifacts and the HDMI output on my laptop doesn't work at all with them.15:14
diatomaceousFor instance, the entire unity bar across the top of the screen is a fuscia mess, and fonts are unreadable15:15
holsteini wouldnt expect better support from the open drivers15:15
diatomaceousThey've been absolutely great so far15:16
diatomaceous(when it boots at all)15:16
holsteinif you have a freeze like that, you can try control+alt+F2 and sudo reboot15:16
holsteindiatomaceous: could be something with the drivers and the kernel you are using15:16
diatomaceousthanks, someone else showed me that as well.. it works, but I'd rather figure out why it's freezing sometimes and fix that.15:16
holsteindiatomaceous: so, you can reboot without harming your hardware, without force restart15:18
holsteini would try kernels... i would try going forward and back in kernel versions with that driver15:18
diatomaceousWould my logs helps point at it?15:19
holsteini would also try live CD's... knoppix, something non-debian... see if you get different results, and make a note of the driver and kernel versions15:19
diatomaceousI'm curious if I didn't fully uninstall fglrx properly15:19
holsteindiatomaceous: you can test for that with an ubuntu live CD15:19
holsteinim sure theres a log somewhere, and you are welcome to wait around for someone that can help you find/interpret them... otherwise, im more of a hardware troubleshooter15:20
diatomaceousthat's actually good news.  Are you more familiar with nVidia?15:23
holsteini have both15:23
diatomaceousHave you had good luck with fglrx with firepro graphics cards?15:24
holsteini dont have any firepro15:25
holsteinand i dont plan on getting any15:25
holsteinim not a gamer, so intel is typically just fine for my needs15:25

* M0hi is attending lubuntu meeting. its nearly 2 AM now :P20:21
diatomaceousWould anyone here care to help me diagnose my booting/shutting down issues?20:22
bioterrorM0hi, welcome to my ubt meetings20:23
inferenceWelcome to the Ubuntu Beginners Team support channel || Please do not wait to ask questions, simply ask!20:23
diatomaceousAh, good point.  My problem is sometimes my laptop freezes at a black screen instead of fully booting into the desktop.  It happens about 2/3rds of the time I boot20:24
diatomaceousThe other 1/3rd of the time, it comes up just fine.20:24
diatomaceousShutting down is similar.. it hangs while the ubuntu logo is showing20:24
diatomaceousI have to hard-reset with the power button both times20:24
philipballewQUESTION: I believe I am connected to a proxy server, but I have no idea how it happened and what to do? I dont remember connecting to one...\20:38
pleia2philipballew: just web traffic or everything (ssh, etc)?20:39
pleia2if it's just web stuff you should check the proxy settings in your browser20:39
philipballewpleia2, Its web trafic I guess. Like hulu and youtube both tell me im in Germany. Maybe google chrome is doing something funky20:40
pleia2philipballew: yeah, go to preferences > under the hood20:40
pleia2there is a proxy section20:40
pleia2err, "network"20:41
philipballewyeah, I looked there and it says im using my computers settings.  Its odd, whenever i attempt to connect to the any router f any network i am on I get this20:42
philipballewAlso, this happened in sd and now when i am in norcal it is happening as well :)20:43
philipballewI'll just play around with it pleia2 and see what I can find20:46
pleia2philipballew: good luck :) I've never touched system-wide proxy settings so I'm not even sure where to begin there20:46
pleia2(and glad you made it up to norcal safely!)20:46
philipballewGot in a 5 am. Its just my laptop here. Maybe something accidental got downloaded. Who knows20:47
philipballewhey pleia2 Thanks for the info I found some random package installed that was causing my trouble21:27
pleia2philipballew: oh good! :)21:28
philipballewfor sure. Well have a good turkey day!21:29
