David-Aakovia: (but if the 988GB is "C:" the resizing must be done from a live cd, thus a windows live cd with a partition tool on it)00:01
akoviaDavid-A: i actually found something about this but some of the instructions are still a little cloudy the way the one guy did it. http://en.community.dell.com/owners-club/alienware/f/3746/p/19459720/20154208.aspx00:02
akoviaDavid-A: windows live-cd?00:02
David-Aakovia: i think there are windows rescue cds or something like that, with some useful tools on them00:06
akoviaDavid-A: ok00:07
David-Aakovia: whos post on community.dell.com you need help interpreting?00:09
akoviaDavid-A: well the one by morblore looks easiest, but when i disable UEFI, it won't boot into windows00:10
akoviaDavid-A: strange, but when i hit default bios it doesn't return to uefi mode. doing it maunally lets me boot again, but the device options are different now, jeesh what a mess00:12
David-Aakovia: my interpretation is that you can boot windows via grub, after the dual-boot install is complete (havn't tried myself)00:12
akoviaDavid-A: I guess i'll start by shinking the partition and go from there for now00:13
David-Aakovia: (to understand why this is happening, 5 years ago any kid could insert a ubuntu cd and install linux on a laptop or desktop, sole or dual boot. for MS this was a problem. now they have essentially solved *that* problem.)00:15
akoviaDavid-A:  the same type of reason i left M$ to begin with00:16
akoviaDavid-A: looks like windows can now resize partitions w/o external sw00:17
akoviaDavid-A: I guess I don't know how to replace the bootloader with grub. ubuntu has always done that for me before. I've shrunk the partition and am now trying to install again00:22
David-Aakovia: (if it does not install grub automatically now, i don't know why that is)00:25
akoviaok, still doesn't see windows but if i go to the "something else" screen now I can install to the new free space. I'm guessing the defaults are ok and make the mount point as /00:26
akoviaDavid-A: i read that you don't really need swap space anymore but i get a warning to add it. IS the rule of thumb double you mem? 32gb in my case00:30
David-Aakovia: my rule of thumb(s) swap=ram, except if ram<1G then swap=1G or if ram>1G then swap=1G, except if you want hibernate then swap~=ram00:33
David-Aakovia: but yes, you don't need swap at all if you don't want it. but i'd suggest a little swap.00:34
akoviaDavid-A: ok, 16 sounds good.00:34
David-Aakovia: without hibernate, 1 or 2 gb would be good too i think00:35
akoviaDavid-A: well here goes... :P00:36
akoviaDavid-A: i really didn't think i could dislike M$ less, but they never fail to surprise me00:38
akoviaDavid-A: err more00:38
David-Aakovia: (offtopic) please write MS, not M$, critics hit much much harder if you spell them right00:39
akoviaDavid-A: my apologies, will do00:40
akoviaDavid-A: well install seems to be stuck with could not find module nvidia_experimentsl_30400:52
akoviaDavid-A: skipping00:54
akoviaDavid-A: well crap! grub opens but i only have option for windows recovery env. and even that fails00:56
xubuntu010Is Xubuntu a good OS to run on a PC with 15GB Master HDD, 100GB Slave HDD, and approx. 1GB RAM?02:35
Unit1931G is not much to work with, but I'm doing it on a computer.02:37
xubuntu010I have an old eMachines with just 1GB of RAM and i was just trying to decide if Xubuntu or Lubuntu would be a better lightweight distro to run. And by better i mean speed compared to boot time and applications available, etc.02:40
Unit193xubuntu010: Applications that you can install would be the same as it's the same repos, feel free to try out both live and see which fits your needs more.02:43
xubuntu010@Unit193: Which supported release of Xubuntu would be the best to install (if chosen) on a 15GB HDD? I'm asking because I only have approx. 3 chances to find a distro due to my limited amount of DVD-Rs02:46
Unit193I myself use the current version because old programs drive me nuts.  It's up to you if you want to use the LTS or current release.02:47
xubuntu010I'll try the current release first. I was running Lubuntu 11.10 (If I remember correctly), but Chromium wouldn't connect to the internet and so i decided to upgrade my RAM from 256MB to 1GB. Since that release of Lubuntu worked extremely well except for that, do you think that the current release should at least be fast enough for use as a second PC? (I currently use a HP Psvilion G6 laptop running Windows 8 <-- *barf*)02:51
Unit193Lubuntu and Xubuntu don't have issues with fast computers at all, but since that's UEFI you'll need 64bit.02:54
xubuntu010Okay, thank you for your help, hopefully this will save me a DVD or two for future endeavors. No one where I live even knows what Linux is. I live in an Apple Community.02:57
Unit193xubuntu254: Howdy.02:59
Unit193xubuntu010: Heh, interesting.03:00
xubuntu010Unit193: Makes it easy to confuse people. BTW, would it be possible to write & boot the Xubuntu 13.04 release to a USB Drive?03:02
Unit193xubuntu010: Of course it is, recommended way.03:04
xubuntu010Unit193: How would I do this? I was never shown how, my High School Tech. teacher (I am not in college yet unfortunately) only taught us how to write to a DVD/CD.03:06
Unit193xubuntu010: If you are on Windows now, LinuxLiveUSB creator is the best tool, for linux there's unetbootin or dd.03:06
ubottuFor information about installing Ubuntu from USB flash drives, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/FromUSBStick - For a persistent live USB install, see: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/LiveUsbPendrivePersistent03:06
xubuntu010Okay, I'll try this once it finishes downloading (Stupid Belkin router.) and I've added my own little code pieces.03:09
xubuntu010Anddddddddddddddddddddd Comcast takes 16 years to download.03:13
xubuntu010Thank you for your help.03:16
xubuntu228Help! I am running a computer with two HDD(s). One is 15GB, the other is 100GB. My first question is, when you get the install screen on 13.04, and you manually create partitions, how do you do this? As in, what partitions do you need, what order, etc? Can someone please walk me through this?04:09
Unit193You'll need an Ext4 partition (main), and a swap partition.  How much ram do you have?04:10
Unit193Generally as much ram as you have, is how big to make your swap.04:11
xubuntu228I think around 1GB, maybe 1.25GB is how much RAM. And, as a side question, would it be possible to use the 2nd HDD as the swap partition?04:12
Unit193You can put the swap partition in the second drive, yep.04:13
xubuntu228Okay, so I am on the screen where you set up the partitions. I have the first drive as the primary, in the beginning of this space, with an ext4 journaling system. What mount point do i need to use?04:14
xubuntu228okay so my first HDD is as follows: Device = /dev/sda1; Type = ext4; Mount = /; Format = Check; Size = 10002804:17
xubuntu228and my second is: Device = /dev/sdb5; Type = swap; Mount =  ; Format = Uncheck; Size = 15018 MB04:19
xubuntu228Both sizes are in MB by the way. Does this look right?04:20
xubuntu228Oh, and the device for bootloader installation is /dev/sda04:22
xubuntu228Anyone there?04:27
cfhowlettxubuntu228, no reason you can't ask this in #ubuntu and there are WAY more people on that channel ...04:28
xubuntu228Okay I'll try that. Seems like everyone is asleep on here at the moment.04:29
cfhowlettxubuntu228, more likely they're systems are humming along and they don't need help ...04:29
xubuntu228Probably. Only reason I need help is I'm a highschooler in Tennessee and no one here knows anything about anything. So I've never been taught this stuff.04:31
cfhowlettxubuntu228, come on over to #ubuntu.   Lots of help04:31

peyamgot that suggestion. I just needed the RPM or RPS17:44
peyamLooked upp the modell and then googled17:45
holsteinpeyam: pretty much, if you cant hear it, its going to be standard.. if its crazy loud, then it might be 10,000rpm's17:45
peyamI need a SSD17:46
holsteinpeyam: thats easy.. ssd's spin at 0 rpm ;)17:46
peyamI have a tiny box17:46
holsteinthe reason to get SSD is not size necessarily17:47
peyamthe fan sounds pretty much. I got one giant SPU fan and 3 other17:47
peyamno I need 64 Gb17:47
peyamfor OS to run faster17:47
peyamI ment the only thing that sounds it the fans17:47
holsteinthe fan? or hard drive?17:48
holsteinsounds like you need a quiter fan.. which is likely cheaper than a hard drive17:48
peyamThe HDD doesnt sound so much. I just hear the Fans spinning17:48
peyamI have at max 44 C in Idle. and it is pretty good. but the box is very tiny and it gets varm...17:49
