YorokobiAnd people say gui's are easier? ^^^
TwiztrYorokobi: I know what you mean...
gah, i dont remember how to enable local root login
YorokobiThere's no need to set a password for root.
Twiztrhold down ctrl+alt+f2 and log in as root and startx
drewthat dint delp anyway
TwiztrNow log in as root, and you have access to the root folders
That's just how to get around the K/Ubuntu no root think.

See you all in a few sec, I'm going back to my faithful command line, and irssi.
obathello, I have a friend who was just moving files in konqueror when he hit a disk full error. Most of the files are in one of the two locations, but some are gone
does anyone know if these files will exist anywhere?
cyber-hazardanyone tried the edgy -> feisty upgrade tool? I'm having a problem with it
deeoobat: that's not exactly possible...
obat: the files aren't modified until the copy is complete
Yorokobicyber-hazard: yeah, I've used it twice now.
obatdeeo: you mean the files shouldn't have been deleted until they were copied?
cyber-hazardYorokobi: when I use it, I get all the way to the prompt that downloads the tool. Then it tells me to click finish to close Adept and start the tool. I click finish....nothing. close adept....nothing
YorokobiIt should auto-start. I've had it hide behind adept before. I want to say that if you close adept it'll close as well (as it expects to be the one to close adept).
cyber-hazardHmmm, okay, let me try that real quick
obatdeeo: konqueror might act differently then direct command line, because I've looked for the files everywhere
cyber-hazardYorokobi: though the page says there's a bug in the tool and that you have to close adept
YorokobiI haven't run into that bug
cyber-hazardnegative, it's not hiding behind adept. not really sure what's going on =\
Yorokobicyber-hazard: the thing that got me both times I used it is I didn't follow the instructions precisely. I missed a step (read over it).
deeoobat: i'm certain of it. in fact, konqueror even compares the files after copy to ensure integrity.
Yorokobiheh, I mean I read/skipped over a step
gotta love English sometimes.
cyber-hazardheheh, yeah. what step? cause the there didn't seem to be many steps involved
deeoobat: the only scenario where files might be lost is if during copy they are deleted by an outside source
obat: in any case, you can use the find tool to search for the files on the command line: find / -iname "filename"
Yorokobicyber-hazard: I think it was the Full Upgrade -> Apply, I didn't apply once and didn't full upgrade once.
cyber-hazardah
Yorokobicyber-hazard: do you get the installer or just Adept's warning about it starting?
