llogiqHi folks.06:39
* llogiq has solved his problem with the bcmwl-kernel-source package and the BCM43142 chipset.07:29
llogiqThanks to teward, I was able to apply the patch that some arch linux folks have dug up.07:31
llogiqI have started a good number of large downloads last night to test the solution. All of them finished successfully. :-)07:33
dingusHello all, I have installed lubuntu 14.01.1 on my old p3, 512 ram, 20 gb hd.09:00
dingusI like it.09:00
MACscrhow do i remove lpanel or whatever its called? I simply want to use glx-dock instead13:08
MACscrdont need both open13:08
__attribute__Has anyone ever had an issue with installing Lubuntu 32 bit machine where after installing to the HDD you boot into a blinking cursor?18:00
__attribute__I have googled this issue quite a bit and this has not helped.18:00
holsteinon hardware that is either broken, or doenst support linux well, i have seen that18:01
holsteini have dealt with it many ways18:01
wxl__attribute__: usually it's because something failed in the download or copy to install media. one bit of difference could create such a difference.18:01
holsteincould be thats simple, as well ^18:01
holsteincould be the installation media, or the destination drive18:01
holsteinwhat do i do? i start at the beginning.. i download what i want, in this case, lubuntu 14.04 32bit.. i confirm the md5 sum.. i then, just boot live.. if i have issues, i test the installation media. i'll do that with the integrity check, or by just trying it on another machine18:02
__attribute__Hmmm, the PC in question is from around 2007, with a Intel Pentimun, 80GB HDD and 512MB RAM. I thought that the hardware was too old for Linux...18:02
holsteini'll then move to testing the ram and the hard drive.. i'll do whatever it takes to get a live desktop, so i can see what works, and how well18:02
wxl__attribute__: nope. go check the hashes.18:03
holsteinthen, i'll install18:03
holsteinif i cant install due to resources, like not enough ram, i'll use..18:03
ubottuThe Minimal CD image is very small in size, and it downloads most packages from the Internet during installation, allowing you to select only those you want.  The installer is text based (rather than graphical as used on the Desktop DVD). See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/MinimalCD18:03
holstein__attribute__: its not the "age" of the hardware.. it'll be the functional state of it, and/or support level18:03
__attribute__How old can hardware be for Linux to still work on it?18:03
holsteinnothing about lubuntu is preventing you from using it anywhere18:03
holstein__attribute__: that depends, more on support level than age18:04
wxl__attribute__: well, if we want to get really pedantic, you could run LINUX (read: the kernel) on just about anything.18:04
holsteinyup ^18:04
wxl__attribute__: if you're asking about what are the system requirements of a particular distrbution of linux, including the graphic server, window manager, etc., that's a different question and one that depends on which distro you're talking about. you can find system requirements at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Lubuntu18:05
__attribute__Well, judging from y'all answers, when I run the memtest+ it doesn't pick up any errors with the RAM Module but in the hard disk test it says there is an error of sorts...18:06
__attribute__wxl, system requirements I know but my question pertained more to support for old hardware...18:07
__attribute__wxl, Haha, the Linux kernel I don't think I'm brave enough.18:08
wxl__attribute__: that doesn't necessarily relate to the first steps holstein and i suggested, but if you have an issue with the hard drive, that's kind of a no-go sort of situation. should you want help from us, you need to be more specific.18:08
wxl__attribute__: it doesn't matter if it's old. it matters if it's enough. linux basically runs on everything. it was built on old hardware.18:08
__attribute__Well, should I give you the entire description of what happens? I remember most of it... At least I think I do.18:09
wxl__attribute__: as i said, specifics matter.18:09
__attribute__Cool, I'll type it out now now.18:10

__attribute__ubottu, thanks! I'm still a newbie, appreciate the help!18:12
ubottu__attribute__: I am only a bot, please don't think I'm intelligent :)18:12
__attribute__ubottu, will do. :)18:15
ubottu__attribute__: I am only a bot, please don't think I'm intelligent :)18:15
holsteinalso, i'll just, personally, throw a few live CD's at hardware.. its like detective work.. isolating and seeing what works and how18:22
holstein*Then*, you have specific support issues, which, are not addressed18:22
__attribute__Well take a look and let me know if my issue is applicable here.18:25
holstein__attribute__: it is, and it isnt18:27
holstein__attribute__: the first issue is, 13.10 is EOL18:28
holstein__attribute__: i suggest, use the 14.04 iso.. as mentioned above, and follow the proceedure outlined above18:28
holstein__attribute__: *all* hardware/hard drives fail.. so, dont assume that machine is functional..18:30
__attribute__holstein, thanks. I'll buy a few CD's tomorrow and play around til something works.18:30
holstein__attribute__: when you load the 14.04 live iso, do you get to the deskop? the live desktop?18:30
__attribute__I'll have to download the 14.04 iso, which will result in an all-day event with my Internet.18:31
holsteinsure.. and i understand that frustration.. but, 13.10 is EOL18:32
holstein13.10 *shouold* run, but, your internet can be the issue here18:32
ubottuTo verify your Ubuntu ISO image (or other files for which an MD5 checksum is provided), see http://help.ubuntu.com/community/HowToMD5SUM or http://www.linuxquestions.org/linux/answers/LQ_ISO/Checking_the_md5sum_in_Windows18:32
holstein^ you can confirm the downloaded file downloaded properly18:32
__attribute__I'll check out the links definitely. Thanks guys!18:34
__attribute__Thanks for your help guys, cheers.18:36
