  • 09:00 trying to install #ubuntu 10.04LTS server amd64 is not going so well….burned 3 CDs and they are all bad. trying alternate download. #
  • 12:26 couldn’t get any 10.04 to install, so tried a 9.10…also no work. was about to hunt down old 8.04 disc when found forum post on the issue. #
  • 12:27 seems 9.10 and 10.04 are picky about what kind of drive the CD is in….switch out original drive for one I pulled from my old Dell ‘tardis’ #
  • 12:28 install of #ubuntu 10.04LTS server is now making more progress….but it is time for my haircut appointment. #

  • 08:19 guesses orac is dead, guess reinstall new is only option now. apparently screwed up original lvm creation and 10.04 no like… #
  • 08:21 but now I’ve made it worse. apparently I fdisk’d the disk, but pvcreate’d the disk rather than the partition…but it worked until 10.04LTS #
  • 08:22 tried to recreate pv and vgcfgrestore, but resulting lv’s are not filesystems. should be able to get back what’s important using backuppc #
  • 08:23 even though orac is my backuppc server, so it wasn’t fully backing itself up. #
  • 08:31 but having said all that, just realized that there is some stuff that I want back that wasn
    ‘t backed up….hmmm. #
  • 19:50 decided its a loss….going to have to re-install orac from scratch. did a ’string’ of something so hope to get some configs back later. #

  • 08:16 still painfully watching and waiting to see if I’ve either made things worse or over to the next obstacle… #
  • 08:18 Wasn’t able to boot 10.04LTS LiveCD on machine, so using a 9.10 LiveCD (which saw the VG fine). Hope 10.04LTS upgrade will boot…. #
  • 08:40 trying to decide if I’ll ride into work….think I will. #fb #
  • 16:40 was just thinking, I should find a con to go to over the July long weekend….rather than suffer at home alone. Perhaps next year…. #
  • 19:36 still no luck in resurrecting orac after failed upgrade of 8.04LTS to 10.04LTS. Trying to at least get to a state where I can read data. < a href="http://twitter.com/LawrenceChen/statuses/16428151039">#
  • em> not sure what I’m going to do yet if its a loss, if only I had put /home in a different vg? hoping if I can read, I can remake those fs new. #
  • 19:44 Meanwhile doing initial guided setup and software update of a replacement TiVo. They say these things happen in threes. What’s next? #

  • 10:19 finally called RCPD this morning about car abandoned? blocking steps to condo for over 4 weeks. #
  • 10:20 Called property, was given a number to call…had to work up courage to talk to somebody after I found it to be RCPD. #
  • 10:20 Wasn’t so hard once it was somebody I know on the other end…. #
  • 10:21 Hopefully it’ll be gone when they come to try deliver my new fridge later… #
  • 17:00 trying to decide which will be worse, walking home in rain or riding my bike home in rain…. #
  • 18:03 wasn’t raining too bad, so riding
    home was better way….still a bit wet. #
  • 18:04 meanwhile, Ubuntu server won’t boot after upgrade from 8.04LTS to 10.04LTS…it doesn’t seem to see the PV/VG of root disk. HELP! #
  • 21:29 seems to me because /dev/md1 was fdisk’d before and then LVM, 10.04LTS won’t boot it anymore. Newer server has LVM directly on /dev/md1 #
  • 21:29 so if that’s true, how do I recover? #

  • 22:41 wow, the storm is intense out there….how the power will stop flickering…want to go use my #cpap. #
  • 22:48 While I have backup power for my #cpap, the flickering is making for lots of noise from the many UPSs I have in my home. #

This will be an attempt to consolidate the little thoughts that come to me while away from my computer.
