|drew||umm its blank|
|Twiztr||type somethign in|
any password you want
then make sure to click ok
then go back to system settings, clickt he advance tab
click login manager
|Yorokobi||And people say gui's are easier? ^^^|
|Twiztr||Yorokobi: I know what you mean...|
gah, i dont remember how to enable local root login
|Yorokobi||There's no need to set a password for root.|
|Twiztr||hold down ctrl+alt+f2 and log in as root and startx|
|drew||that dint delp anyway|
|Twiztr||Now 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.
|obat||hello, 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-hazard||anyone tried the edgy -> feisty upgrade tool? I'm having a problem with it|
|deeo||obat: that's not exactly possible...|
obat: the files aren't modified until the copy is complete
|Yorokobi||cyber-hazard: yeah, I've used it twice now.|
|obat||deeo: you mean the files shouldn't have been deleted until they were copied?|
|cyber-hazard||Yorokobi: 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|
|Yorokobi||It 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-hazard||Hmmm, okay, let me try that real quick|
|obat||deeo: konqueror might act differently then direct command line, because I've looked for the files everywhere|
|cyber-hazard||Yorokobi: though the page says there's a bug in the tool and that you have to close adept|
|Yorokobi||I haven't run into that bug|
|cyber-hazard||negative, it's not hiding behind adept. not really sure what's going on =\|
|Yorokobi||cyber-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).|
|deeo||obat: i'm certain of it. in fact, konqueror even compares the files after copy to ensure integrity.|
|Yorokobi||heh, I mean I read/skipped over a step|
gotta love English sometimes.
|cyber-hazard||heheh, yeah. what step? cause the there didn't seem to be many steps involved|
|deeo||obat: 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"
|Yorokobi||cyber-hazard: I think it was the Full Upgrade -> Apply, I didn't apply once and didn't full upgrade once.|
|Yorokobi||cyber-hazard: do you get the installer or just Adept's warning about it starting?|
