  • Re: Help Troubleshooting Reboots

    As I mentioned up there, I replaced the motherboard and had the same issue. The problem is now gone though, and I'm on the most up-to-date Lucid build. The problem seems to be caused by a conflict between the proprietary non-open nVidia drivers I was using and Xorg 1.7.5. I can't be entirely...

  • Re: Rig wish list

    Gotta agree with the others. Unless you specifically need the X-Fi for some reason, try out the on-board audio and see if it's suitable. You can always add the X-Fi later down the road. I'm biased against that card myself, because Creative mismanaged the Linux support at every turn and it's...
  • Re: Help Troubleshooting Reboots

    Xorg 1.7.5 seems stable so far. I'm going to give it until this weekend, then I may bite the bullet and put the 2.6.32 kernel on it. I'm still suspect of the KMS changes. I have scripts that can put everything back from tar files, but I think I'll use the opportunity to also play with Clonezilla...

  • Help Troubleshooting Reboots

    Hey all! I was hoping the hardware gurus here might tell me if they have seen any similar problems, or have further ideas for troubleshooting that I haven't yet pursued. I'm more of a software guru, so I'll seriously pursue any suggestions. I apologize for the length of this in advance, but...

  • Re: Cannot Acess Extremely Important Data...

    The way Bob's suggesting is actually pretty easy... It sounds more complicated than it is. I was going to suggest the same, but was waiting for someone to suggest a "Windows-way" so that it wouldn't just sound like I was promoting Linux (again). :) As a shortcut to learning how to mount...

  • Re: What kind of this Virus and how to clean the USB

    Boot from any Linux LiveCD, copy off any files on it you need, then open a terminal prompt and enter dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sdX BE SURE TO REPLACE 'X' in the above line with the proper letter. If in doubt, unplug the thumbdrive, plug it back in, wait a second and type "dmesg | grep sd"...

  • Re: 3vi1 Help me!!(or anyone else) VirtualBox 3.0 Ubuntu guest troubles.

    Hmmm... that's kind of weird - it looks like it's saying your /tmp path is mounted read-only. It might just be a security issue though - did you use 'sudo'? Reboot the VM, use the "Devices/Install Guest Additions" menu option to mount the additions ISO (if it isn't already...

  • Re: 3vi1 Help me!!(or anyone else) VirtualBox 3.0 Ubuntu guest troubles.

    The only problem I see so far is that at login/logout, the screenmode doesn't always change to the proper mode for gdm... so you get garbage instead of the login screen. I'll probably do some more testing and file a bug against the VBox video driver for it. Here's the workaround for that...

    Also, it does indeed look like Compiz works under 3.0: Just make sure you install the Linux guest additions, then you'll be able to turn it on under appearance.

  • Re: 3vi1 Help me!!(or anyone else) VirtualBox 3.0 Ubuntu guest troubles.

    Hey Bob, I decided to try installing from the latest daily Ubuntu LiveCD myself, to see if I could recreate your problem. The good(?) news is: I did run into an installation-stopping issue, but I found a way around it. It looks as if Ubiquity may have some new bug related to ecryptfs. This caused the...
