CuliforgeI could be talking complete nonsense... but does 10.04 not have acpi support and is that why when I dist upgrade I have to add acpi=off to my grub to get new install to load?01:36
philipballewCuliforge, it should.01:40
Culiforgenow i'm confused then01:41
Culiforgewhen I initially installed 10.01:41
Culiforgethings went just fine.. upgraded to 11.04 and I need acpi=off to boot normally...01:42
Culiforgesorry, fat fingers tonight apparently01:42
ThelasI'm unable to connect to a wireless (WPA) network under Ubuntu 11.10.  When clicking Enable Wireless from the menu it's disabled again very shortly thereafter. The same occurs from the Network menu in System Settings - I disabled Airplane Mode (which was enabled after the install), but it seems to reenable itself every time I reopen settings.  I tried the commands at http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=882357 but after 03:24
Thelasthe command "sudo dhclient wlan0" appears to hang, as it does not return even af ter several minutes. I ^Ced, looked at the man page, and tried it with "-1", whi ch had the same problem. Any help would be appreciated, as I'm not sure how to p roceed.03:24
Thelas[sorry for the odd spacing, the message went over the max length of my irc client's textbox, so I composed part of it in vim, and the newlines from wordwrap apparently became spaces when I copied it.03:25
M0hiThelas, dhclient wlan0 hung and never responded with a value?03:38
ThelasYeah, as far as I can tell. Didn't get a prompt back at least.03:38
M0hican you run lspci and pastebint he result?03:39
Thelassure. Any particular part you want, though? (I'll be copying it out by hand, as the computer with Ubuntu, well, won't connect.)03:40
ThelasEither way, just finished copying the full output out: http://pastebin.com/76y9sknE03:51
ThelasM0hi, if you're still there, pastebinned it above as requested.03:58
M0hiSorry. I din't see it coming. give me a min Thelas =]03:59
M0hiThelas, yours is a 64 bit OS or 32 bit?04:04
ThelasI downloaded the 64bit ubuntu installer off the site, assuming that's what you mean.04:05
M0hiThe post http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1900253 says that you have to disable N :[04:07
M0hiLemme dig more on it Thelas04:07
ThelasM0hi: Should I do that, then? Or are you still looking for something else?04:08
M0hiThelas, Just create a backup file and please do the changes mentioned in that. Lets give it a try =]04:13
ThelasThe file doesn't exist, so no need to back it up.04:13
M0hiAhha! okies04:13
ThelasI'm getting a permission denied when I try to cat >> it though, even with sudo.04:14
Thelas(and vim and emacs aren't installed by default apparently.)04:14
M0hihttp://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1844396 another post04:14
M0hidid you create the file and try it04:15
* M0hi prefers nautilus ;D04:15
Thelashow should I edit it?04:15
Thelassince I'm getting "Permission denied"04:16
M0hiThelas, 1) sudo nautilus 2) goto the particular location, create the file 3) right click and open with gedit04:19
Thelasyeah, I just figured that out04:19
Thelasnot sure why sudo nautilus worked but not sudo cat04:19
Thelasbut oh well04:19
M0hior else change the file permission first. sudo chmod 777 <file-path>04:19
M0hihehe cat do not need a sudo unless the file is locked though ;P04:20
ThelasI meant "sudo cat >> /etc/[...]"04:20
Thelasbut either way, change made. Do I reboot now, or..?04:20
M0hiYep. Try rebooting. I will be here. just ping my name wheny oua re back =]04:21
ThelasThis is on a separate computer, I have no internet at all on the ubuntu box.04:23
M0hiawwe :[04:24
Thelasbut I'll ping you when it's up04:24
ThelasM0hi: Well, that was the fastest reboot since ever04:25
ThelasI have opened the Network settings and there is no longer a Wireless tab at all.04:25
M0hiowh! that's great. check whether the issue got resolved =]04:26
ThelasAlso, Airplane mode turned itself back on. Again04:26
M0hiForgot to ask you a question. What is your laptop model?04:27
ThelasLenovo V570.04:27
M0hiThelas, are you looking at that thread?04:35
Thelasyes, I did04:35
Thelastrying the commands, acer_wml does not exist for rmmod04:37
Thelasand more importantly it isn't found by modprobe04:37
M0hiso sudo rmmod -f acer_wmi returns nothing?04:38
Thelaswith -f it returns nothing, yes04:39
M0hidmesg | grep iwl returns nothing?04:41
Thelas[    9.041459] iwlagn: Unkown parameter `11n_disable50'04:43
M0hi:/ its the entry we made and it is not present already :/04:44
Thelasyeah, that's what that looks like to be04:44
Thelaswhat now?04:44
Thelasshould I delete that, reboot, and try the same thing again?04:48
M0hiThelas, saw something in http://askubuntu.com/questions/77719/wireless-doesnt-work-on-a-lenovo-v57004:49
Thelasshould I delete the file you had me make earlier first, or keep it/04:51
M0hiyeah. Delete it and give a try for the response in askubuntu04:52
ThelasWell, I just got a popup saying "connection established"04:57
Thelasso I think I am now entitled to be happy.04:57
M0hiMe too :)04:58
M0hiSo you tried the second point right? Just planning to keep a note to help in future ;D04:59
ThelasThe answer that was +2ed is the one that helped.04:59
M0hiThelas, Internet is connected now?05:01
M0hiYay!! great =]05:01
Thelasof course not everything's working smoothly...05:02
Thelas"sudo apt-get install vim" yells at me05:02
Thelasby which it mean it says "Package 'vim' has no installation candidate."05:02
ThelasI'll figure that out, though.  Thank you for the help with the internet.05:05
M0hiThelas, ^05:05
M0hiwait...! 11.10 right?05:05
ThelasYeah, 11.10 for me.05:06
M0hiThelas, sudo apt-get install texlive-full vim05:07
Thelasah. It's yelling at me about locks now... I'll wait for after the updates, maybe it'll work then.05:07
M0hiAye! :)05:08
ThelasFor now, the person who lent me this other computer to use while I was getting this working would like it back, so I'll probably come back next time I can't figure something out (once I have an IRC client on the Ubuntu machine.)05:08
ThelasThank you!05:08

escottsluckxz, use users instead of setting a uid23:36
escottsluckxz, hard coding a uid will break for other people, but users will allow you to mount it and take ownership of the files23:37
