kdefhello, can someone here give me suggests for a wifi usb n device?   I think the most common chipsets are atheros and realtek.... any opinions?01:49
wilee-nileekdef, I have found all the ones I bought locally worked, there is a wiki on ones that due but not really up to date.02:24
alankilakdef: I have had good experience on ath9k based device, but unfortunately only on PCI/PCIe03:50
alankilaI actually have two devices on my NAS/router/VPN/VM host, a 5 GHz ralink RT2800 and Atheros AR5418, which is 2.4 GHz only. Both have worked very well over the last few year or two03:52
alankilanow I have every expectation that USB introduces no particular problems, maybe the antenna is poor or something. Interface-wise, even USB 2 is fast enough, and USB itself is simply a packet-based point-to-point scheme so it shouldn't be difficult to support.03:55

fetoegaMy attempt to purge nvidia-325 defies me. "Error! There are no instances of module: nvidia-325" Any ideas how to solve this?16:18
fetoegaOr can i bypass this step by telling the system that the particular package is not installed and remove it manually?16:19
BluesKajfetoega, check for it in muon16:20
BluesKajif it's a ppa , it should still show up16:21
fetoegaBluesKaj: I have no Xorg running.16:21
fetoegait is from edgers16:21
fetoegai am trying to remove/purge it after all.16:22
fetoegagonna give aptitude a go at it. perhaps ill get lucky16:24
BluesKajuse a text editor like nano to check your sources.list and either deletet he deb/ppa or # comment it ,. or  sudo ppa-purge xorg-edgers , if you have ppa-purge installed16:26
fetoegahow would that help?16:28
fetoegaaptitude is chugging along though16:28
fetoegaperhaps itt will work16:28
fetoegabut aptitude has runied my systems before =)16:32
FernandoMiguelfetoega: since multiarch, aptitude is not recommended16:38
FernandoMigueland I did use it a lot16:38
fetoegahehe aptitude decided to remove a couple of xorg drivers and vlc for some reason... then is proceeded16:41
fetoegahope it worked. brb16:41
Pinocchiogood morning19:46
Pinocchioshould i use drm-intel-next kernel for saucy salami?19:46
wilee-nileeunicornjedi, Your aware that 13.10 is in development and not advised for regular use.22:37
unicornjedibut I think the problem I have pertains to other versions of ubuntu.  it's something to do with busybox22:40
wilee-nileeunicornjedi, Easiest way to see what is up is a detailed description, and running the bootinfo summary on the boot repair app, and posting the url to it.22:40
unicornjediokay let me boot into a liveUSB and get the info22:42
unicornjediokay i'm in the boot repair app right now22:45
wilee-nileeunicornjedi, I know nothing about mdadm or raid so others wil be your best help.22:45

unicornjediokay i have the info ... http://paste.ubuntu.com/584186322:48
wilee-nileeunicornjedi, not sure, generally suonds like fstab not having the correct uuid, in the circumstance I'm just guessing.22:48
wilee-nileeor root is corrupted, another guess. ;)22:48
unicornjediD: yeah it's corrupted because mdadm messed up my boot files >:{22:50

unicornjedihow is that different IDE?23:24
Pinocchioide is a compatibility mode23:24
Pinocchioit doens't use the advanced features of AHCI like prefetch and NCQ or large disks >2tb23:24
Pinocchioyour board supports AHCI? if not update your bios23:26
Pinocchiosome boards like p5k or other garbage needs to be patched to enable ahci due licensing issues23:26
