MarcoCeppiikonia_ no boot menu
_Robin_salve hi@all
ikonia_MarcoCeppi either the drive is dead for DVD's or the media/burn of the dvd is rubbish
steel_ladyikonia_ do you know how this can happen? I was using it till now with other cards and suddenly after I used it once with this card...
ikonia_steel_lady no idea, sorry I'm not a hardware engineer
soundraysteel_lady: I've heard that support for some card readers will improve when feisty comes out
ikonia_soundray it doesn't work in windows either
soundray hence why I'm suggesting its hardware
MarcoCeppiiknoia_ i checked the dvd and it's good. Is there a way I could make a floopy to boot it. the pc is old and I don't know if it will reconized dvd's for bootable device.
ikonia_MarcoCeppi not really
MarcoCeppi why not burn the edgy cd - rather than dvd
soundrayikonia_: that's a strong argument of course -- also that it has *stopped* working (steel_lady)
ikonia_soundray exactly
steel_ladysoundray, what was happening before is that when I put it in, sometimes it mounts in ubuntu and sometimes not.
ikonia_steel_lady hardware
soundraysteel_lady: if the reader is faulty, claim an exchange. The manufacturer should bear the shipping costs.
steel_ladysoundray and in win it was working before but I had system installed normally. right now I don't have drivers so probably that's it
soundraysteel_lady: alternatively, get a USB card reader
MarcoCeppiikonia_ I'm out of cd-r . I copied the alternative cd to a usb drive and tried doing dist-upgrade by mounting the usb drive as a cd and adding it as a repository. But it always botches the upgrade.
Orfeousneed some help formatting a floppy
i run this "sudo fdformat /dev/fd0" then i get that the filesystem is readonly
soundrayOrfeous: mtools makes that easy
ikonia_MarcoCeppi you're a bit screwed
steel_ladysoundray, and it was happening before that it was very moody mounting cards in ubuntu. so the last time when I took it out, it was complaining that I didn't unmount it although it was not using it. can I try to refresh/restart it somehow?
soundrayOrfeous: maybe you have to flick the little switch on the floppy's corner
MarcoCeppiikonia_ damn, okay I'll go out and buy more cd-r
docmurhello all
MarcoCeppiikonia_ thanks for the time though!
ikonia_MarcoCeppi sorry
MarcoCeppi any time
Orfeoussoundray, its allready done
docmuris there a special group for ubuntu development
soundraysteel_lady: it's hard to tell from a distance. It might even just be dirt in the slot or on the contacts
steel_ladysoundray, I know that it happens like that sometimes when you take CD out also
marckoHello. I'd like to enable a proxy. Any suggestions?
soundraydocmur: #ubuntu-devel (can't you search for channels with your IRC client?)
