algun problema con tu pc?
ward_RAOF, gaten, output of the setserial command: /dev/ttySX: No such file or directory
Toma-Im not getting any sound devices on a dell d300 laptop.... how can i find out what card it has?
Flannelgbutler69, redcard, no. He doesn't, that's what the rcovery console is for.
gatenDavo_Dinkum: read about the /etc/shadow file and learn how to reset your password once you boot the cd
redcardDavo_Dinkum: And, I am going to recommend if your computer is in a safe area that only you use , that you use a non-common (meaning, one you don't use in other places) password and you write it down near the computer. Many would have a problem with that, but the reality is, if you have access to the physical machine, you can compromise it anyway

Blond1lordtureis: i dont see restricted drivers manager
leagrisDavo_Dinkum, boot on the live CD. Mount your root partition somewhere. Edit the file as sudo (no password required for sudo on the livecd)
gordy_auhi, why does ping, ssh and other network tools never attempt to resolve an address from my secondary dns server when the first server doesnt have the answer?

rubberduckyredcard: my windows box already had sharing enabled
RAOFward_: Oh, you want to replace the "X" there with a number.
rubberduckystill can't access the files in that folder
redcardrubberducky: Yes, but check the permissions on the windows box.
gatenBlond1: ok, now you need to search the ubuntu forums for an "ATI howto"
redcardrubberducky: It might have defaulted to some weird permissioning.
XServer<nicnicnic> use automatix wit will handle that for you
rubberduckyredcard: how do you do that exactly?
Pelonicnicnic, start with the resricted driver applet in meny > system > admin ( or pref I never remember)
Flannel!automatix | XServer, nicnicnic
ubotuXServer, nicnicnic: Automatix2 is a script that tries to install some software, and often fails and breaks systems. We don't provide support for it, and we strongly discourage its use. Problems caused by Automatix are often hard to track and solve, and it might sometimes be easier to !install a fresh copy of Ubuntu. See also !WorksForMe
XServer<nicnicnic> if u have feisty u should have them by now
ward_RAOF, how do i know wich one?
konamim having problems with the aMSN in the ubuntu repos.
redcardrubberducky: Right click on the directory on the windows machine, and check the permissions. I think they're under the "Security" tab.
