nibalizerslangasek: pong, by way if blkperl00:02
slangaseknibalizer: hey there00:07
slangaseknibalizer: I need people with macs for me to beat up on00:07
slangaseknibalizer: want to come to the BSP at Free Geek next Sunday and bring yours? :)00:08
slangasekjust to be clear, I'm proposing the beat up the macs, not the people00:10
nibalizerbtw at this point i am happily running ubuntu albiet in bios emulation mode00:31
nibalizeri have 12.10 at this point, should i do anything else to prepare?00:32
slangaseknibalizer: nothing at all; I mostly want to know if the raring media will boot, so I'll bring those with00:35
slangaseknibalizer: do you have an optical drive?00:35
slangasek(I have a USB DVD drive; it's crap, and half the time fails to work)00:35
nibalizernot an apple one, i have a usb cd drive kicking around somewhere though00:36
slangasekthese are DVD images, Ubuntu doesn't fit on a CD anymore00:38
slangasekI'll just bring mine00:38
nibalizerslangasek: found the usb dvd drive, so we're double covered04:47
nibalizeri usually just dd the iso onto a usb though04:47
c_smithnibalizer, that'll be the quicker method, too,04:54
c_smithand more supported if the machine is so old it doesn't support DVDs.04:54
nibalizerc_smith: well its a mac book air 2011, its too new to support DVDs05:17
bkerensanibalizer: you going to come bang on RC bugs at the BSP? :)05:20
c_smithnibalizer, ah, that can be a problem, too.05:21

c_smithmy laptops are toast.05:23
slangaseknibalizer: well, as this is supposed to be a hybrid image that works on both USB and optical, it's useful to test that05:44
bkerensac_smith: you just bought a new laptop this year no?05:53
c_smithbkerensa, yes, that laptop met the sidewalk05:54
c_smithan accident, of course.05:54
