kpennaltHello, I'm having an issue with the alpha release of 12.04, and I was wondering if this is the right place to ask for help?03:47
EvilResistancei told you in #u-motu, this is03:48
EvilResistanceread the topic03:48
EvilResistance"Discussion and support for Precise Pangolin"03:48
EvilResistanceaka 12.0403:48
kpennaltdo i just jump right in with the description?03:48
EvilResistancewhich is in alpha03:48
ubottuPlease don't ask to ask a question, simply ask the question (all on ONE line and in the channel, so that others can read and follow it easily). If anyone knows the answer they will most likely reply. :-) See also !patience03:48
kpennaltWhen i login, nothing loads on the desktop except nautilus03:49
kpennaltI tried to see if the issue had been fixed with an update03:49
kpennaltby doing "sudo do-release-upgrade -d" in recovery mode03:50
kpennaltbut network manager isn't connecting to my ethernet connection automatically03:50
* EvilResistance points out those are both separate bugs, one with network manager, one with nautilus/unity/gdm/whatever03:53
* chmac just survived a Compiz crash by ctrl-alt-f1ing to a terminal, killing compiz, and ctrl-alt-f7ing back14:07
* chmac feels quite proud of himself!14:07
ts2this is one is the reasons one should always have a terminal emulator open at all times14:11
chmacts2: Is a terminal emulator different than gnome-terminal?15:07
chmacts2: The most recent issue I had was the entire screen freezing, so in that case, ctrl-alt-f1 was my only option. :-)15:07
ts2"terminal emulator" is the generic name for any program which acts like a terminal15:08
ts2gnome-terminal is a terminal emulator, but so is xterm, konsole, etc15:08
chmacts2: Ok, I thought that, but wasn't certain of the terminology. I also always have a terminal emulator open, it's just plain useful. :-)15:09
ts2I use yakuake, useful when you don't want to clutter the taskbar thing15:11
ts2tilda and guake do the same thing in a gnome environment15:12
chmacInteresting, I leave gnome-terminal running all the time, usually multiple on multiple workspaces. I've never considered "sl/hiding" it.15:16
EvilResistancets2:  +1 to that15:16
ts2especially when you're doing things where you may want to be reading something and typing on the command line, being able to quickly (and easily) show/hide the terminal is useful15:18
ts2or just if I'm just not using the terminal, I don't need to see it15:18
pangolinguake is awesome15:18
EvilResistanceyeah, there was an #ubuntu-classroom session on it, i was like "GIMME GIMME GIMME" by the end of the session... been using it ever since :P15:25

gerthIs there no loop.ko file in Ubuntu 12.04?21:03
gerthCan somebody check if the loop.ko file exists?21:05
trismgerth: the module is compiled in: CONFIG_BLK_DEV_LOOP=y21:41
gerthtrism: Is this in the default kernel package or not?21:57
trismgerth: from /boot/config-3.2.0-8-generic22:03
gerthtrism: I mean, is it compiled by default?22:05
trismgerth: not sure I understand, it is compiled into the kernel, not built separately as a module (not sure why you get that error, but I don't know much about the debian-installer)22:09
gerthtrism: thanks for the explanation22:10
