finalbetabiggi_mat: the terminal is ehm, the terminal...
biggi_matI heard ctrl+alt+F5 might do the job
finalbetabiggi_mat: yeah, I guess, that takes you to another terminal.
fryfrogif you are in the gui, ctrl-alt-f1-f6 are consoles
from there, alt-f1-f6 will flip between them
usually alt-f7 or f8 is X, if you want to get back
cukihy
AlexC_Morning all
fryfrogbut... in X, why not just run xterm or something?
Dr_willisbiggi_mat, it may be a good idea to tell us what you are trying to install exactly.
cukibaszunk
teeLiebiggi_mat: Yeah, i know. Right now i have: /dev/sda3 /media/data ext3 auto defaults 0 2 But its not automounting. Is it wrong?
ucordesjlgaddis: stil around?
finalbetaDr_willis: I think he is messing with graphics or alsa, he needs to shut down xorg , edit some files, and start it.
just guessing.
Vuenhey guys, how do i find out my X version?
Dr_willisfinalbeta, yea -i see way too often people asking how to so this and that.. whant what they really should be asking is the best way to do what they are TRYing to do :) not the 'this and that' stuff.. heh
Vuennevermind
kbrooksDr_willis: stop guessing
my assumption is that ...
jp;d on
well, i bet he was trying to install an ATI driver.
Dr_willisperhaps we should tell biggi_mat how to use irssi so he can stay on IRC while hes trying to work on his system. :)
biggi_matSo indeed, ctrl+alt+f5 + gdm stop does the job
Dr_willisI cant recall having to Exit X to install nvidia or ati drivers lately.
:)
AlexC_no, nor me.
ucordeshow can i search a folder recrusively for files with a certain pattern?
kbrooksbiggi_mat: you dont have to exit x fully
biggi_matThe problem now is I don't have the kernel source of the kernel I'm using and there is no source on apt mirriors as well but nvidia drivers required the source

ubotubiggi_mat: To install the Ati/NVidia drivers for your video card, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BinaryDriverHowto
Dr_willisucordes, learn the proper command syntax to find.. its a rather.. deep program. :)
Bakerzbiggi_matt did that make your screen go totally out to?
pseudorootteeLie: try removing "auto"
biggi_matBakerz, yes
BakerzI did that command and my screen went totally black
ucordesDr_willis: deep?
kbrooksbiggi_mat: don't install them manually. use the packages from the liink which AlexC_ gave
BakerzI would like to atleast have a console
