confreyI have a problem with wifi card; I can't associate the card to the ap, and iwconfig gives me the essid name 'truncated', without the last letter
jmgvic2: sure does
confreyany idea?
LjLi've already gave him !ohmy and !offtopic in private. no need to do it like 10 times >:
rbs-titoorentet: Most likely it will show up as a USB hard drive
LjLwhen i kick someone, i give them the relevant factoids
jmgjlulian38_: try #ubuntu-offtopic too
michael117What files store what packages are installed? I'm trying to back some stuff up from a drive
kane77how can I unzip multiple zip files from console?
orentethow do i check to see if my motorola will be configued correctly?
vic2so guys, do you recommend if i go right now and buy a Geforce card for 50 $$ and use that ? (more than 100 $ is NOT an option)

ubotumichael117: There are many ways to back your system up. Here's a few: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BackupYourSystem , https://help.ubuntu.com/community/DuplicityBackupHowto , https://wiki.ubuntu.com/HomeUserBackup , https://help.ubuntu.com/community/MondoMindi - See also !sbackup and !cloning
yetimichael117: so you just want a list of packages you have installed?
jmgfor i in *.zip; do unzip $i; done
vic2: yeah thats a good plan
michael117yeti: Yes, but I cannot boot from the drive, only read it
vic2jmg, will XGL run too if i get an Nvidia?
yetimichael117: can you chroot into it?
rbs-titovic2: Yes, on a GeForce
jmgvic2: otherwise stick to windows
vic2also, is it hard to install Nvidia drivers?
michael117vic2: You can run AIGLX with nvidia cards which is actually native support and owns XGL by 10^millionth
jmg!nvidia | vic2
ubotuvic2: To install the Ati/NVidia drivers for your video card, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BinaryDriverHowto
rbs-titovic2: No, Ubuntu Feisty has a one click method, Nvidia have an installer script. Easy
rocketronnieandre: I think the installer expects a mysql server to set up with root password, use the instructions here to get the mysql server set up: http://www.howtoforge.com/ubuntu_debian_lamp_server
vic2GOOD, so its not like ATI and the 200 page thread on installing drivers???
rbs-titovic2: No, just drop to text only and run a script
rocketronnieandre: then try installing the bugzilla package again
jlulian38_I found a ceramic bowl anyway :P
I know those are safe
mneptokrbs-tito: the binary install from nVidia is not recommended. better to use packages.
michael117yeti: Actually, I'm currently running of a Suse LiveDVD because it has LVM support. Can I still run synaptic and maybe export a list? Will the system crash if I try to chroot to it?
rbs-titomneptok: I wholeheartedly disagree
mneptokrbs-tito: you're welcome to do so. you're still wrong. :)
TTT_TravisHi how can my standard users mount samba shares from the terminal?
