segers_jHi, I'm trying to install Lubuntu on a firewire disk on a 2010 iMac. the install went ok, but I can't figure out how to boot it. Google only found stuff about doing this on PPC hardware. Anyone here willing and able to help?04:48
holsteinsegers_j: i dont think that era machine from mac was able to just boot whatever you want04:49
holsteinsegers_j: you can always put grub or some other bootloader on a local disk that points to the firewire disk to boot04:50
holsteinsegers_j: might also be able to use plop from CD to boot and find the firewire drive with grug or whatever bootloader you have on it04:50
segers_jholstein: ok, do I need to repartition the internal drive to do that?04:51
ianorlinor make a live cd04:51
segers_jholstein: err, no the first one.04:51
holsteinsegers_j: tbh, i have little first hand experience with customizing ppc linux.. i always just installed to an internal drive.. but you should be able to use grub from the internal drive04:52
segers_jholstein: Ok, what's involved in putting grub on the internal drive, and by the way I've got a core i3 not ppc.04:53
holsteinsegers_j: OH, i would just use plop then, from cd04:54
segers_jok, I'll go research that, many thanks.04:55
holsteinotherwise, https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Boot-Repair might do you right from a live CD04:55

Noskcajjoshu_, still looking for SSDs?20:56
NoskcajAny would work20:56
Noskcajphillw, i posted a few issues i found on the lubuntu wiki page yesterday, can you have a look? http://irclogs.ubuntu.com/2013/07/22/%23lubuntu.html#t08:2320:57
ubottuIt's a wiki, *you* can edit it20:59
NoskcajUnit193, I wanted to be sure if it should be edited21:00
joshu_hi Noskcaj I bought an Intel 330 60GB but haven't opened it yet? Any good?21:00
Noskcajjoshu_, for what i've heard, they're one of the most reliable ones you can buy21:01
joshu_Noskcaj that;s great news! I spent quite a while trying to find a suitable option21:02
joshu_Noskcaj In terms of any ubuntu specific configuration I was told on #Ubuntu that I should research as there are things to to when using SSDs. I found this link https://sites.google.com/site/easylinuxtipsproject/ssd which has easy to follow steps. Do you recommend these or something different or nothing at all?21:04
Noskcajjoshu_, from what i've heard, you don't need any linux specific setup now. just use 13.04 (or 13.10) and use the "whole disk" option21:05
joshu_Noskcaj oh really I'm using 13.04, so I shouldn't make any changes? When you say whole disk you mean guided partitioning during install?21:06
Noskcajjoshu_, yeah21:07
joshu_Noskcaj great less too worry about! thanks!21:08
Noskcajno problem21:08
canin13.10 fully adopts the isntall for SSD now? No more changing FS settings and swap?21:08
Noskcajcanin, (i think) it's similar to 13.04, but better kernal support. the swap and some FS settings are only optional, so they aren't going to get activated21:21
