PhysicsBrainGreat! How can I do it? Canyou help me fella?00:00
holsteinPhysicsBrain: i would just boot the live CD, and open the file with the text editor of your choice... the one that you used to edit it in the first place should do00:00
holsteinPhysicsBrain: fix it back, and reboot00:01
PhysicsBrainOk. Let me see! I have to boot with the live CD, open the file and edit. but, where is it in the test mode of the live CD?00:02
holsteinPhysicsBrain: ?00:02
holsteinPhysicsBrain: it'll be right there on your hard drive.. assuming you arent using encryption, you open it from the live CD and edit it00:03

ubot2yeehi: Usually, there is no single "best" application to perform a given task. It's up to you to choose, depending on your preferences, features you require, and other factors. Do NOT take polls in the channel. If you insist on getting people's opinions, ask BestBot in #ubuntu-bots.13:17
yeehithanks for that histo! I didn't know about ubuntu-bots - how would i format a question in #ubuntu-bots?13:21

ubot2GRUB2 is the default Ubuntu boot manager since 9.10 (Karmic). Lost GRUB after installing Windows? See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RestoreGrub - For more information and troubleshooting for GRUB2 please refer to https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Grub2 - See !grub1 for releases before Karmic (9.10)16:08
holsteinjonny2: the grub install can be tricky.. i just put grub on the USB stick16:08
holsteinjonny2: i would say, just grab unetbootin, and put a live distro on the stick, and see what your needs are16:08
holsteinjonny2: you can use the space on the unetbootin16:09
jonny2Thanks holstein.16:10

GeothstI'm getting some errors on my splash screen when I boot up but they're just kinda randomly all over the screen and I don't have time to read exactly what the errors are. is there a way to pull up boot-up errors after the fact?21:44
geirhaIt depends on what stage of the boot they occur, but if it's late enough in the boot, check /var/log/boot.log21:45
GeothstIt looks like everything on here has an [ok] after it.21:56
GeothstIt says could not write bytes: broken pipe, then it says lots of stuff... starting crash report submission daemon, hardware RNG device inode not found, cannot find hardware RNG device to use, topping save kernel messages, sane disabled: edit /etc/default/saned22:08
GeothstOh that's weird. that didn't go through.22:09
geirhaok, something weird is going on there, but not enough information to suggest what22:23
GeothstIt's a fairly fresh install. I am trying to install steam but it's not working. I installed the very latest beta nvidia drivers.22:35
Geothstsynaptic, xchat, GIMP, inkscape, normal stuff. I haven't done anything wild yet.22:35
