sudo ./ati-driver-installer-8.24.8-x86.run
ektobotubotu: ok thanks, when i install ubuntu from the live cd it crashes halfway through formating the drive so i have to reboot and start again then it flies through the installation and gets passed the bit it got stuck on...but it creates 2 versions on boot up???
ubotu: have you heard of this problem b4
FujitsuEkToBoT: Does one say `(recovery mode)' ?
!ubotu | EkToBoT
ubotuEkToBoT: I am ubotu, all-knowing infobot. You can browse my brain at http://bots.ubuntulinux.nl - Usage info: http://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuBots
mofomikeswow fc6 blows
FujitsuEkToBoT: ubotu isn't a human.
mofomikescant even get a decent update
ektobotubotu: there are 2 normal ubuntu otions and 2 recorvery options and my options for xp
Fujitsu: who's bot is it?
FujitsuEkToBoT: Does it matter?
ektobotno can anyone help me?
FujitsuEkToBoT: Do any of the options work?
Crazytommy edgy install takes like 10 minutes to startup and i can't figure out how to see what it's hanging on. it just says starting up. can someone give me a hand?
SubMOAhow do you make something start up on start up
Crazytomplease?
ektobotwell the first ubuntu option works havent tried the recovery and windows options work
ubuntu is intalled on a seperate smaller drive
FujitsuCrazytom: When you see the booting menu, select the Ubuntu option and press e. Find the line that has `splash', press e, and remove the splash bit.
Crazytom: Then boot, and it'll tell you what it's doing.
Crazytomthank you
FujitsuEkToBoT: So the only issue is that there are two entries?
ektobotyeah
FujitsuEkToBoT: If you run `gksudo gedit /boot/grub/menu.lst' and remove the second Ubuntu and Ubuntu recovery mode entries, they should vanish. Make sure you delete the right ones, though.
ektobothmm sopunds hard
ardchoilleFujitsu: They should, yes.. I removed memtest and recovery modes from mine.
ektobothow will i diffrenciate between the 2
cbx33thanks Fujitsu
FujitsuEkToBoT: They appear in the file in the order they appear on the menu. Don't delete the one which works :)
ardchoilleEkToBoT: The line at the top that says "default 0" tells you which kernel boots by default, numbering starts at 0, not 1. So if default says 0 then the first kernel will boot default.
ektobotcan i navigate to that directory by just copying the cmd you sent across?
Fujitsucbx33: I really can't remember what I helped you with, but no problem.
EkToBoT: That command will open up a text editor with the right file.
ektobotthanks for your helpp brb
nellyEkToBoT: sudo cp /boot/grub/menu.lst /boot/grub/menu.lst.backup
just in case....
ardchoillenelly: Good idea
CheshireVikingEkToBoT, just a suggestion, rather than deleting the entries you don't need, just put a "#" sign in front of the sections, at least then if you do find you need them, you can just edit the file & take them out
