shatratFlannel, ah, great
wafromaz: an optical drive usually doesn't open/close at boot
shatratFlannel, will that totally hose upgrades? or can feisty and stuff run on an old edgy kernel if it has to?
Flannelshatrat: the kernel package (linux-image-[versionnumbers]-generic) is the one that is the current kernel, and the metapackage (without the version numbers) is what causes the upgrading.
wafromaz: check your connections and master/slave settings
tabbotwhen i try and build alsa 1.0.13 , its asks for version.h? do i need an actual kernel build for it, or is headers enough? any backports for 1.0.13 to edgy?
Flannelshatrat: Feisty runs on the Feisty kernel
PoofDaddytabbot: you da man!
evolipelpuff: yeah I have
wafromaz: and make sure the controller is enabled in the bios
evolipelI said: "various: first I tried the gnome thing, then I went into the console... at which point it said "radio off," so I researched it, discovered I needed acerhk, blah blah blah, set it up, now iwlist eth1 scan properly gives the various AP's in the area... however, any attempt to connect to them still gives an "unassociated" in iwlist"
tabbotPoofDaddy: glad I could help :)
shatratFlannel, so will removing the metapackage mean a broken upgrade, or will it force the kernel upgrade?
mazfervidfrogger and wafro - thanks... what i mean is it will open/shut if i ask it to, but only for the first few minutes. can't access the drive. There used to be a CDrom in that position and I just swapped them over so master/slave should be ok
wafro - ok, how do i do that?
Flannelshatrat: and yes, I believe to upgrade, you'll want to have the appropriate kernel metapackage, and that means the newest. upgrade-manager forces that, I believe.
evolipeliwconfig*
wafromaz: are you running linux?
evolipelnot iwlist
shatratFlannel, well, Ill cross that bridge when it comes. Thanks for the hot tip
mazwafro - yes ubuntu breezy
puffevolipel: So you did, like: "sudo iwconfig eth1 essid "foo"; sudo iwconfig eth1 channel bar; sudo dhclient eth1"
wafromaz: check your dmesg output too
maz!dmesg
Flannelmaz: you really ought to upgrade, Breezy is going out of support in a few weeks.
ubotuSorry, I don't know anything about dmesg - try searching on http://bots.ubuntulinux.nl/factoids.cgi
mazok flannel, will check that out on the web page
quaalwhy is my clock going off sync again. i have it synced to like 3 or more timeservers
i dont understand
ant.quit
Flannelmaz: and there's a good chance that the HW issue will be fixed with the upgrade, so it's sort of silly to spend a bunch of time fixing, only to have it fixed automatically.
!upgrade | maz
ubotumaz: For upgrading, see the instructions at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UpgradeNotes
Chris86wmdoes anyone have experience setting up a usb webcam under ubuntu?
BeastlyKingsI was here about a broken windows parition?
mazthanks flannel
Chris86wmmy camera is picked up in the device manager, but i cant seem to get it to work
quaalBeastlyKings, wrong place?
wafroquaal: does it happen after you have been running another OS?
evolipelpuff: yes, still gives "unassociated," and dhclient runs for a while but then dies with "no DHCPOFFERS"
