During installation of Sabayon 3.25,the GRUB didn't have an entry for
Mandriva 07,therefore,I added an entry labeled Mandriva Linux 2007 and
pointed it to root partition for Mandriva namely sda5(partition 5,HDD 0) for
Sabayon.But Mandriva refuses to boot with the error message given below and
tells me to press any key.When I press a key,it sends me back to GRUB.FYI,my
home partition(sda7 partition 7,HDD 0) is separate from my root partition in
All partitions are logical.
On the advice of a friend who knows something about Gentoo and Sabayon,I
modified the entry for Mandriva in /boot/grub/menu.lst as follows:
title 'Mandriva Linux 2007'
Presently,the error message is:(/*....*/ are comments and not part of the
Booting 'Mandriva Linux 2007'
root(hd0,4)/*Since I have only 1 HDD,hd0 and since Mandriva root is in
Filesystem type is ext2fs,partition type 0x83/*But I have all linux
partitions as ext3fs!*/
kernel /boot/vmlinuz root=/dev/hda5
/*I tried sda5 too,with and without(w/o) ro and hda5 with and w/o ro*/
[Linux-bzImage, setup=0x1e00, size=0x1b68d6]
/*All greek and latin to me*/
Error 15:File not found.
Press any key to continue..._
/*When any key is pressed,it sends me back to the GRUB menu*/

Do you have a gateway? Remeber a proxy and gateway are different
although they can be on the same machine. If you have a gateway then
it is not forwarding ICMP ECHO packets. Can you do:
$ traceroute google.com
I still would like to know what you are trying to achieve? Anything
particular you want?

It is an online video player, intended to render all
streaming type movies (YouTube) as well as flash
animations. From the archives, you will gain a huge
amount of understanding of how bits are rendered in
pixels, no matter what the codecs involved, whether it
is about lines of text or images.

I was trying to connect to the internet using
different Live CDs including Freespire, Ubuntu 6.10,
Xubuntu 6.10. through the USB port that was conne cted
to the ADSL (Dlink 502-T) router. Somehow, all the
above didn't manage to configure the device
automatically on boot up, though Ubuntu 6.10 listed
the device on the device manger.
I finally tried Dapper Drake (Kubuntu 6.06) and it
automatically configured the device (allocating IP
address through DHCP) and Konqueror (my smart browser
- as I call it) proved that the device is working and
I'm connected to the internet.
I wonder, if Ubuntu has the same base as Kubuntu, why
didn't ubuntu do it? AFAIK, the desktop environment is
the different, but the base is same, isn't it?
(This was on Dell E1405 running the Kubuntu 6.06 Live
If one can list steps, that I probably had to follow
for Ubuntu 6.10, please let me know.

Please everyone see project Gnash - join in if you are
interested. It's a really cool project by some good
people to resolve all the nasty proprietary issues
around video - including flash animation. Normal is
really boring, after all!

CDAC Mumbai is organising an OPEN HOUSE on the 21st April
2007 at its Juhu campus where delegates can interact with our R&D staff and
get a feel of the various research/development/educational activities in
progress at the centre. This will broaden their exposure to the field of IT
and pave way for closer interaction with CDAC Mumbai. There will be
demonstrations of systems developed by us, presentations by some of the
reseachers, etc. This is also an opportunity for people to get a feel of our
research labs and know more about our educational programs.
We invite you, your colleagues and your friends to the open house. Please
find a poster about this event at:
We request you to pass on this information to others and also publicise the
event among your colleagues and friends.

I am so happy. :) Finally I got rid of Etch testing and installed my
long awaited Kubuntu 6.10 dvd. It has more boot options than 6.06 and
the dvd has a server version included. So for installing a server one
has to type 'server' or 'server-expert' at boot prompt. There is an
option for command line only install in the main menu itself.
Its paint program is much improvised from the earlier one that was like
M$ Paint. This one has 'Krita' which has good features like photoshop or
gimp. I love KDE. Long live KDE. Cheers to all the KDE guys. Keep up the
good work. Multimedia audio/video is not proper as usual even after all
the upgrades and codec installations. But thats normal in Linux. Open
media formats play fine.
Finally, those who have always been searching for an option to boot any
Ubuntu cd into a live root console only, I found the solution from the
net. Simply use the option that allows you to edit the boot string and
add 'single' at the end of the line and hit enter. This boots the system
live into a root prompt without asking for a password. I have hunted for
this in the cd menu itself but could never find it. I tried 1 and rescue
but that did not help. I recollect using 'single' for Red Hat.
