xubuntu731Hi! I'm trying to do a multi-monitor setup on a fresh install, but I'm confused as to which driver I should use.  Four options I'm given are version 173, version 173-updates, version current [recommended], and version current-updates.  Any suggestions?01:26

lepiratHi gents09:19
lepiratI'm happy to see people interested in XUbuntu, I'm new in this wonder world :)09:20
lepiratI have a question, I was hoping to find a solution in this amazing channel10:18
lepiratI'm working on xubuntu started like 1 week10:18
lepiratActually, I'm new at ubuntu world in general10:19
bazhangwhats the actual question10:19
lepiratQuestion is : How can I install xubuntu on ( RAID1 ) machine and LVMs10:19
lepiratI need to install LVM on top of RAID 110:19
lepiratRAID 1 is Hardware Raid not Software10:20
lepiratbest regards10:20
Sysiyou can use LVM when installing with alternate disk10:21
lepiratScenario is : I have a machine with two HDDs, I made them RAID 1 ( Mirroring ) .. Now I need to Install xubuntu using LVMs on this machine10:21
ubottuThe Alternate CD is a classic text-mode install CD. It supports a wider range of hardware than the !LiveCD, and can also be used as an upgrade CD. http://www.ubuntu.com/download/ubuntu/alternative-download#alternate - See also !minimal10:22
Sysihardware raid shouldn't affect operating system10:22
lepiratthanks guys, I took this article for example10:23
lepiratIt shows every thing perfect BUT10:24
lepiratIt's not RAIDed10:24
lepiratWhen I made RAID 1 ( Hardware )10:24
lepiratI did this lovely command ( sudo fdisk -l )10:24
lepiratit shows me /dev/sda10:25
Sysixubuntu doesn't know you have hardware raid10:25
Sysiit should just work10:25
lepiratno I suppose it knows that I have HW RAID10:26
lepiratbecause there is one more partition10:26
lepiratit's : /dev/mapper/isw_cffeiahdid_volume010:27
lepiratI don't know if it10:27
lepiratif it's generated because of RAID 1 ( Hardware )10:27
lepiratif it's true10:27
lepiratthen hoe can I make partitions and LVMs10:28
lepiratshall I take this it's : /dev/mapper/isw_cffeiahdid_volume010:28
lepirator the original /dev/sda10:28
lepirator /dev/sdb10:28
lepiratany idea ?10:29
lepiratI've been suffering from this more than 1 week, I don't know what to do ?10:30
recon_laplepirat: dont seem to be many raid people here, maybe asking on one of the server channels ?10:30
lepiratI tried to deal direct with sda10:30
lepiratbut won't work10:30
lepiratany partition I create in sda10:30
lepiratit will duplicated in sdb10:30
lepiratafter I reboot the system10:31
lepiratso, here comes the LVM problem10:31
recon_laplepirat: I would think that hardware RAID should just show to the OS as one drive?10:31
lepiratI need to install LVM on existing of RAID10:31
lepiraton Top of RAID10:31
koegslepirat: what hardware raid controller do you use?10:31
lepiratrecon_lap thanks for replay10:32
lepiratKindly, where is the server channel10:32
recon_laplepirat: would think you'll find all the raid experts in #ubuntu-server10:32
Sysilepirat: I guess you need to use that /dev/mapper drive10:32
lepiratkoegs : I not sure, but I have IBM Machine think Station10:33
koegsso maybe just a crappy fake-raid controller instead of a real hardware raid controller :)10:33
lepiratI don't know, maybe .. anyway10:35
lepiratthanks guys for your help10:35
lepiratmuch appreciated10:35
lepiratsee you on server channel10:35
koegsbut i would not recommend using ubuntu on a onboard fakeraid-controller10:36
lepiratthat's really interesting10:37
lepiratwhat if I clear this RAID110:37
lepiratand make a software RAID, which I don't know how by the way .. it might work .. am I right ?10:38
lepiratsysi, thanks for replay .. but I did try it it wouldn't work iether10:38
koegslepirat: do you also have a windows-installation on the harddrive? because clearing the raid1 might lose the windows-installation10:45
lepiratno I don't10:46
koegsthen you can delete the fakeraid10:55
lepiratkoegs : how can I do it, besides can you send me again the server forum, I lost a connection, I was having a conversation there .. please thanks10:56
lepiratguys ?10:59
lepiratkoegs ? are you still there ?11:00
koegslepirat: you have to read the manual of your workstation, if you want to know how to delete the bios fakeraid11:04
recon_laplepirat: was #ubuntu-server11:10
lepiratthanks amigos :)11:13

homehey guys22:21
homehow do I remotely control my xubuntu system?22:21
homeI am already suing ssh, but its a hassle22:21
homeI want to know how to use vnc or something to control my xubuntu box22:22
Unit193Have you seen https://help.ubuntu.com/community/VNCOverSSH ?22:22
David-Ahome: have you tried "ssh -Y ..." ? then you can start graphical programs remote and see their windows locally.22:24
recon_lapdoes xubuntu have a remote desktop?22:27
David-Arecon_lap: yes, default client is Vinagre. can use ssh and vnc. there are others too, e.g remmina and a lot of packages with "vnc"+"viewer" in their names.22:34
