22:17 < rokun> I have to admit, because mandrake is setup as the default boot, a lot of
times I forget to choose windows to load up first so I kinda restart the
computer when mandrake is loading.. now when I choose to load mandrake,
the GUI loads very very very slowly. How can I fix it?
22:17 <@moonie> rokun, don't kill the boot, if you must you can do ctrl-alt-delete to
reboot it during the boot
22:18 < rokun> im scared that'll screw up the bios or windows
22:20 <@moonie> no it won't, it sends init 6 to the system (reboot)
22:21 <@moonie> rokun, but you can edit lilo.conf, change default=linux to
default=windows (or similar) then run lilo to install the changes into mbr
22:21 < DoppelGanger> ha ha thts funny
22:22 < rokun> yeah, I was meaning to do that for the past two months.. but im kinda lazy
22:23 < rokun> what do you propose is happening.. why is mandrake really really slow to
load and respond
22:24 < ruggy> it don't like the fact that you have windows too
22:24 < rokun> damn
22:26 < rokun> please don't tell me I got to reinstall mandrake
22:27 < fateisajester> even if you do have to reinstall, if you give yourself a /home
partition you wont loose any of your settings
22:28 < rokun> hehehe
22:29 < rokun> I did not install anything on mandrake..
22:29 < rokun> just lazy to do a full install
NB: translation: R E T A R D E D
22:30 < fateisajester> btw that reminds me... why cant you select every single package
during the installation... every time i have reinstalled i have
selected everything i can but i still have to spend another 2-3
hours installing the rest of about 3 gigs of software that is on
the disks.. i know that sounds kinda weird, but the way i see it
is if i took the time to d/l those packages i want them all on my
22:31 < fateisajester> thats crazy right?
22:31 < ruggy> very
22:32 < fateisajester> like rh... you can check a box that says "everything"
22:32 < fateisajester> they should do that with mdk
22:32 < ruggy> why?
22:33 < fateisajester> idk... make things simpler for ppl who want everything
22:33 < rokun> is there a 'scandisk' program for linux?
22:33 < rokun> maybe that can help me
22:34 < fateisajester> i mean why put the extra pkgs on the disks if you dont even have
the option to install them during the "installation" process

19:34 < neil> but wait, larsl said theres a universal way of writing cds
19:34 < larsl> neil: Almost universal.
19:34 < FirstStrike> there's something called cdrdao that a lot of software uses for burning
19:35 < neil> disc at once?
19:35 < Cha0tic> no workie
19:35 < FirstStrike> google.com > cdrdao :P
19:35 < larsl> I meant mmc.
19:36 < neil> what about k3B?
19:36 < neil> it doesnt let me burn stuff
19:36 < FirstStrike> k3b uses cdrdao
19:36 < Cha0tic> waaaaaa
19:36 < Cha0tic> its not working
19:36 < FirstStrike> you need it installed to burn
19:36 < neil> yeah
19:36 < neil> its installed
19:36 < FirstStrike> then you have other problems :P
19:36 < larsl> neil: I've had problems with k3b too - it works when I use cdrecord directly though.
19:36 < neil> i opened it and added stuff to a cd and clicked burn, but it doesnt work
19:37 < FirstStrike> works fine for me =\
19:37 < neil> whats cdrecord directly
19:37 < larsl> cdrecord is another program that k3b uses for burning.
19:37 < neil> wait
19:37 < neil> so how do i use that?
19:38 < larsl> neil: man cdrecord
19:38 < neil> how do i use cdrecord directly?
19:39 < neil> what does man do?
19:39 < larsl> neil: Show you the manual.
19:39 < FirstStrike> open a console
19:39 < FirstStrike> and type man cdrecord
19:40 < neil> yeah got it
19:40 * FirstStrike is actually burning a cd right now :P
19:40 < neil> is there no way i can use K3B?
19:40 < larsl> Or type man:cdrecord in Firefox or Konqueror.
19:40 < FirstStrike> you will, but you'll probably have to fiddle with it, do some google searches and kick your PC a few times :D
19:41 < neil> precussive maintenance:)
19:41 < neil> lol
19:41 < neil> when i actually tell it to burn, it says thers no driver
19:42 < FirstStrike> try logging in as root in the command console (su, hit enter then enter password) and typing urpmi cdrecord
19:43 < FirstStrike> and for good measure, urpmi cdrdao
19:44 < neil> ohh, so cdrecord and cdrao are both modules of k3b?
19:45 < neil> so if i install both, i will be able to use k3b?
19:50 < neil> also, does anybody know if there are packet cd writing programs for linux?
19:51 < neil> like nero's INCD for Windows?
19:51 < crash3m> neil: last I checked udf was experimental, but it seems to be in the 2.6 kernel now
19:51 < neil> yeah
19:51 < neil> im using 2.6 i think
19:52 < neil> how do you get the kernel version in the command prompt?
NB: translation: damn didn't know the cli could be that scary
19:38 < neofax> Is anyone using apt for mandrake?
19:39 <@Hawkwind> neofax: Most use urpmi which is specific to mandrake. Though there are some who use apt but not myself
19:41 < neofax> I have tried to use urpmi, but it is not exactly my cup of soup. I have been using apt for about 4 years(SuSE) and am quite accustomed to it.
19:43 < pjv> neofax: it's not as powerful nor as old as apt. so you can't expect much from it
19:43 < DoppelGanger> 4 years about time you used a real distro see debian
19:46 < pjv> 4 years is a long time. what was wrong with yast2?
19:46 < neofax> DoppelGanger: I have used debian, but it does not fit my needs. It is a
great distro, don't get me wrong, but I want something that I can install
and have work out of the box. I really don't like twiddling with too
many files. SuSE used to do this until 9.1 came with a broke Berkeley
DB. So, I switched to Mandrake and am really liking KOLAB.
19:47 < neofax> pjv: It wasn't yast2 it was the broke Berkely DB which caused cyrus-imapd to not work which for me is paramount.
