HacksawSAIs it possible to install full fledged kubuntu strictly in text mode?
reldruhSilentDis: oh well, I suppose I'll live :-)
Linux_GaloreHacksawSA: it in the first screen when the cd boots
Schuenemannappearance*
reldruhHacksawSA: yes, use the alternate CD to do a text install. It's a pretty wonderful process
HacksawSA: you can also install a command line system from the alternate cd
HacksawSAThe alternate has all the packages KDE and whatnot?
SilentDisreldruh: well... due the the announcement of hitting 1.0 was only yesterday, give the repos a week or so to pick it up. probably less :)
HacksawSAI wasn't sure.
reldruhHacksawSA: yep, all the same stuff. It's just not a liveCD
HacksawSAGreat, that'll be fine. Thanks.
DisabledDuck*Sigh*
Linux_Galore<-- running k3b 1.0 in edgy , I swapped over yesterday
SilentDisDisabledDuck: do you mean 'disable usplash', the pretty picture you get as kubuntu boots?
reldruhSilentDis: what about digikam? (See, I am a feature whore) That may have been out for a whole week :-) i just have to wait and when it gets in, it gets in?
DisabledDuckSilentDis: the one where it just says "Kubuntu" and the line that shows that its loading
betahm, if the distro makers could just note when a handbook has last been updated it would be a great starting point
SilentDisreldruh: or when it hits !backports :)
Linux_Galoreedgy wont be running k3b 1.0 because growisofs in >= 7.0
SilentDisDisabledDuck: are you looking to 'see what's behind it', to get a log, or another reason? what's the end result you want to achieve through disabling usplash?
betaoh wowie...debian actually does that
reldruhSilentDis: what is backports? I don't have any experience with it. Is it a different repo? one that doesn't come in sources.list at all by default?
beta28. Januar 2007
SilentDis!backports | reldruh
ubotureldruh: If new updated Ubuntu packages are built for an application, then they go into Ubuntu Backports. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuBackports
Linux_Galoreedgy uses growisfs 6.1 I had to update it to 7.0 manually
betaLinux_Galore: are you part of the ubunut development team?
Linux_Galoregrowisofs*
beta: nope
DisabledDuckSilentDis: My laptop won't show it, all i get when it's supposed to be showing the "upsplash" is that my screen gets all staticy for about a minute then shows the logon screen
reldruhLinux_Galore: am I supposed to understand that updated packages don't get updated in a default install?
Linux_Galorereldruh: doubt it, because they have to also update growisofs
SilentDisreldruh: ahhh. sounds like it's having trouble switching to that vid mode. It's been a while since I disabled mine, and I can't remember how I did it (and I can't figger out how to turn it back on, either lol)
!usplash | DisabledDuck
ubotuDisabledDuck: To select the usplash artwork you want, use "sudo update-alternatives --config usplash-artwork.so && sudo update-initramfs -u" - See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/USplashCustomizationHowto for adding your custom artwork
SilentDisreldruh: sorry, comment was supposed to go to DisabledDuck
DisabledDuck: : ahhh. sounds like it's having trouble switching to that vid mode. It's been a while since I disabled mine, and I can't remember how I did it (and I can't figger out how to turn it back on, either lol)
DisabledDuckSilentDis: is there any way to just have it show the processing that are loading?
betamay i ask you more experienced guys the odd question why you settled for ubuntu instead of debian?
Linux_Galorereldruh: its actually easy to compile in edgy (k3b 1.0) you just have to install a pile of dev packages from the repo and download and compile growisofs (its called dvd-rw-tools on the web)
