jxshxxAfter an upgrade to 13.04, I can't get internet through ethernet cable.  The wireless was busted before the upgrade.  Any thoughts?  Thanks!01:41
holsteinjxshxx: "busted"?01:41
holsteinjxshxx: the hardware is broken?01:41
jxshxxholstein: Would seem so.  When I checked for drivers, it told me the device was not working01:42
jxshxxholstein: But the ethernet worked for the upgrade01:42
holsteinjxshxx: i usually test with a live CD, or with an operating system the device vedor states supports it, to be sure its not broken01:43
holsteinjxshxx: otherwise, you are mentioning things which could be indicitive of failing or bad hardware.. i would start troubleshooting (of course after making backups of data) the memory and hard drive tests from a live CD01:44
holsteinjxshxx: you'll want 13.10 anyways.. 13.04 is about EOL01:44
jxshxxholstein: It was probably 13.10  I upgraded in terminal.  Didn't pay attention.  Not a numbers guy :)01:45
holsteinjxshxx: if you try the 13.10 live cd, and it works, you can assume a few things. the installed system is the issue, and not the hardware, though, it still could be a bad hard drive01:46
jxshxxholstein: Everything else works, just no internet.01:47
holsteinjxshxx: everythign works but not the internet from a live CD?01:47
jxshxxholstein: No, in it's current state01:47
holsteinjxshxx: do you understand what i mean but "live CD"? this is an easy way to remove your currently installed system from the equation without breaking your currently installed setup in any way01:47
jxshxxholstein: Yes.  Shouldn't I be able to do that with the cd I have of the previous version?01:48
holsteinjxshxx: sure, but, that doenst answer all the questions.. that is a different kernel, so, if all works on the 13.04 live CD, you cant assume the issue is with the live CD, it could also be that your hardware supports the 13.04 kernel and not the 13.10 one01:49
jxshxxholstein: I get it.  This is on an old laptop.  It's more a dvd player than anything now, but it'd be nice to be able to plug it in.  I was running 13.04, so it was after the upgrade to 13.10 that the ethernet quit.01:53
holsteinjxshxx: i would back up the data, and be prepared for a fresh install, and work through the following questions. does my hardware support 13.10? is my hardware broken? can i get to a desktop and use all the hardware from a 13.10 liveCD.. if so, a fresh install would be what i would do01:55
holsteinan install takes about 8 minutes01:56
holsteinyou can look in "lspci" and see if the system is seeing the hardware.. also, ifconfig in the terminal01:56
jxshxxholstein: The good news is there's nothing to back up.  Popping in the 13.04 cd now to see if it lets me connect w/ the www01:59
jxshxxholstein: I'm IN!02:01
holsteinthats what i would use to download 13.10 and make installation media02:03
jxshxxdownload 13.10 through the 13.04 cd?02:04
holsteinjxshxx: im just saying, thats how i would proceed..02:05
jxshxxholstein: Alrighty then!  Thanks for your help.  I wouldn't have thought to test via live cd.  Genius ... plain and simple.  Take no guff from any soul, and have a lovely eve.02:10
holsteinjxshxx: good luck.. and if you want to check, ifconfig in the terminal can really help you see if the network devices are showing up02:17
YaMoonSunI want to use my 4GB flash drive to create a multiple boot installer using YUMI from pendrivelinux - Which option should I choose to for alternitive install?03:19
holsteinYaMoonSun: just try the alternate ISO.. i dont know how well it works with yumi.. havent tried it03:19
YaMoonSunYou're not much help then.. I'm already 'just trying' lol03:20
holsteinYaMoonSun: cool.. enjoy!.. i dont think any documentation for either state the alternate iso's work03:21
YaMoonSunThey're not detected by yumi simply by choosing lubuntu is why I asked - Where are you located?03:22
holsteinYaMoonSun: i would start with something from here, if the errors are similar http://askubuntu.com/questions/194401/cant-install-alternate-cd-from-usb03:23
YaMoonSunI know you think you're helping, but long story short, tl;dr03:25
holsteinYaMoonSun: i *am* helping.. as a volunteer. the way to use that iso should be similar if the error message is similar03:25
holsteini used to do that with unetbootin and the ubuntustudio iso's03:26
holsteinif you dont find it helpful, no worries.. you can always try #ubuntu since there is a larger more active support community there, and you can reference yumi and *any* alternate iso there03:26
YaMoonSunWell, I just made an educated guess and so far no error - I'll try to boot up in a virtual drive once I finish adding installers. I don't know if I can keep adding after I leave the program.03:27
YaMoonSunNo one ever talks in there, I keep getting the bot.03:27

FoarsHow would I go about burning the latest Lubuntu ISO to a disc? The typical Ubuntu instructions don't work with Ubuntu. https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BurningIsoHowto#Burning_from_Ubuntu07:55
YaMoonSunSo why does Richard Stallman call Ubuntu spyware and does that also apply to Lubuntu? =/08:15
FoarsIf I remember correctly, the search function in the Unity dock. When you search using it, that data is sent to Amazon or something.08:16
FoarsLubuntu doesn't use Unity, so no YaMoonSun.08:16
FoarsYou can disable that spyware feature before it even collects anything though.08:17
YaMoonSunThanks, also, with 1GB memory should my swap partition not exceed 1024mb?08:19
FoarsNot sure.08:22
YaMoonSunAh, alrighty =308:23
FoarsI'll come back later.08:29
YaMoonSunAlright - I think I need a reboot myself. =308:30

FoarsHow would I go about burning the latest Lubuntu ISO to a disc? The typical Ubuntu instructions here: https://help.ubuntu.com/communityu/BurningIsoHowto#Burning_from_Ubuntu don't work with Lubuntu.21:47
holsteinFoars: should work fine.. lubuntu *is* ubuntu21:49
holsteinFoars: you dont copy the iso to a disc.. you have to make a copy of the actual disk.. using the iso as the source, and the disc as the destination21:50
Foarsholstein if you have a look at that link, you can't follow the instructions on Lubuntu.21:50
holsteinFoars: im just tring to straigten the link out.. its 404'ing for me21:51
holsteinFoars: regardless, its the same for all the iso's.. you can dd copy all of them now as well21:51
holsteinFoars: i think it is https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BurningIsoHowto#Burning_from_Ubuntu that you are looking at21:51
FoarsOoops: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BurningIsoHowto#Burning_from_Ubuntu21:52
holsteinFoars: is the issue you are running lubuntu? and using a different burner21:52
holsteinFoars: from *any* burner, that is the proceedure..21:52
holsteinFoars: make a copy of the disk.. the source is the iso, the blank disk is the copy..21:52
FoarsI guess I'll just have to look for some burning software, or try to fix my issue with my current burning software.21:54
holsteinFoars: whats the issue? what software? xfburn?21:55
holsteinFoars: you can always install brasero if that is what you are more comfortable with21:55
FoarsYes, xburn holstein. paste.ubuntu.com/6747224/21:59
