jahani
ok

Daemoen
z00dax, you use gnome right?
z00dax
Daemoen: yes mostly
Daemoen
are you running seamonkey on your system? (yes this has relevance)
puzzled

mepolarbear
Hey all, something bizarre just happened and I got booted to a restart and now I am getting an inode error on my hd, how can I fix it? (I am in a knoppix livecd to get to you all so I can still chroot etc...)
bobnn
oops wrong channel
mepolarbear
I am using the latest vers of cent os fresh inst.
(oops) cent os -> centos (sorry)
z00dax
Daemoen: no, not at the moment
mepolarbear
Someone help please! I'm a bit desparate and can't get back into my system. If I can't fix it I will have to reinstall the whole thing.
Daemoen
(Action) ponders
Hydr0p0nX
what filesystem are you running mepolarbear?
z00dax
mepolarbear: boot with the centos cd, boot into rescue mode, if you get an error - tell us what that is
Hydr0p0nX: how many filesystems does centos install to / on ?
Hydr0p0nX
ext2/3, reiser, probably others?
mepolarbear
Hydr0p0nX, The default - ext3
z00dax
Hydr0p0nX: do you use centos ?
Hydr0p0nX
on one box
out of my 15 or so
z00dax
ok, CentOS only does ext3
         

mepolarbear
z00dax, Ok, I will be back then. Is there a text based irc client in rescue mode I can use so I don't have to reboot?
z00dax
humm no
the rescue mode is quite basic, but you should be able to chroot into the installed system
did the system actually finish installing before it did the reboot ?
mepolarbear
z00dax, Definitely, I had been using it all day. I think I killed an 'sh' process and that's when it happened. Anyway, I'm gettign a "short read" on one of the inodes...does that help?
gettign -> getting
z00dax, besides, it's been a while since I chrooted so I'm not sure I will know what to do once I boot into rescue...:-S
z00dax
could be a bad drive
mepolarbear
z00dax, So I may not have a choice BUT to re-install? (it's a fresh install now) how could the drive all of a sudden be bad?
z00dax, Just asking.
z00dax
drives fail :)
power failure, vibration, external shock, bad cables - anything
I'd suggest you do a badblocks run before the reinstall
shinyo21
xchat is a pay program ??
mepolarbear
z00dax, That command is? Exactly? (sorry to seem so newbie-ish, haven't run into this problem before so never needed to use it)
z00dax
shinyo21: only on paid-for-os's
mepolarbear
shinyo21, No. Though there IS a py version.
z00dax
mepolarbear: google for badblocks
mepolarbear
py -> pay
z00dax, You would say that. Knoppix didn't pick up my vid card right so vid sucks right now...640x480 ugh!
shinyo21
http://xchat.org/windows/
mention for windows need pay?
z00dax
shinyo21: this isnt #windows, this is #centos - we dont really care about windows apps
shinyo21
zOOdax: huh .... u all use centos os to run xchat?
z00dax
this is #centos - we talk about centos here
shinyo21
ok. sorry. so can i use xchat on centos ? ^_^
puzzled
yes and it is even free
Daemoen
Anyone here know of a way of removing a window from alt-tab?
z00dax
Daemoen: iirc, there is a way to disable alt+tab completely
Daemoen
i like alt tab
shinyo21
puzzled : my centos is 4.2 version, so how can i install?
Daemoen
but in kopete, the camera viewer has a dangerous button... a single button... "close"
lol
shinyo21
puzzled : somemore is not in windows platform, i am newbie in linux enviroment
puzzled
shinyo21: ok here we go. lesson 1: never talk about windows in a Linux channel
unless to make fun of Bill Gates off course
shinyo21
puzzled: sorry sorry i do know the regulation bout this
puzzled
shinyo21: yum install xchat
shinyo21
puzzled: how to install ? are u using xchat on centos ?
puzzled
shinyo21: yum install xchat
peerce
shinyo21; first, `yum update`.... now you'll be running CentOS 4.4 w/ latest updates.
shinyo21
puzzled: type "yum update" at centos ???
puzzled
shinyo21: open a terminal, make sure ou are root and type in the command "yum update"
shinyo21
is it a must to latest update ?
peerce
at a command prompt. that will update everything thats been updated since your last update or install. security fixes, bug fixes, etc. might take awhile, it might have to download.
puzzled
(Action) meanwhile fights with autoconf, the horror
peerce
er, might have to download quite a few megabytes.
z00dax
need to be root
puzzled: enjoy!
peerce
shinyo21; I dunno -most- but its a damn good idea.
puzzled
z00dax: yeah, I would almost trade you for those xml files :)
z00dax
haha, i win, I found hughesjr :)
shinyo21
ok ok now i type it, but it won't effect my other configuratioin rite ? cox i scare other thing happen then i die hard
z00dax
I am back to now looking at fairly decently done .py code
puzzled
ah nice. can't imagine how work that would have been if you had to do it manually
hughesjr
z00dax: right .. and too bad that you did ... :P
(Action) goes back to reading xml files :P
z00dax
:D
puzzled
lol
hughesjr: I have a few autoconf m4 patches for you if you get bored from reading xml
hughesjr
well ... at least my vim has color .... :P
shinyo21
what is the command for checking centos current version ?
puzzled
cat /etc/centos-release
Daemoen
hughesjr, you have ay ieas how to remove select windows from alt-tab?
puzzled
not sure though
shinyo21
"ls" is a command listing the file and directory command
hughesjr
puzzled: that will work ... cat /etc/release
shinyo21
how can i stop the listing command to one shot list whole thing more than a page
puzzled
ls | less
or ls | more
shinyo21
