Linux chat room?


It seems as though posts get lost after several hours and no one sees them anymore. I need help NOW. I got a response from one person and then I haven't seen any activity since then. Is there any sort of Ubuntu chat room available?

And just in case anyone cares.....please look at this thread to view my problem with ubuntu and RAID.

The post you received in the other thread looks like the correct thing to do to restore your MBR so that you can boot into Windows XP. What happened when you tried it?

I booted from the cd and it asks whether I want to do an install a recovery install or exit...I chose recovery and typed in fixmbr and it went back to the c prompt and I typed exit and It tried to load into ubuntu after reboot and I got the grub error 25 again.

Tried fixboot...said it couldn't find system drive.....argh

Is there any way to fix the grub loader?...I am downloading the stupid ubuntu again....this is taking forever.....I erased it off mom's computer because she doesn't like my stuff on it.


I am currently waiting for ubuntu to finish dl'ing again so I can reburn and check md5 sum....the sum on my MEPIS cd is fine.

OK - the grub folks are optimistic that you can remove it Have a look at http://www.gnu.org/software/grub/grub-faq.html#q12 or just boot with your Windows CD to a console and type:
Code:
fdisk /MBR

Thanks ...I'll try it....

ok...back....it says "command is not recognized" when using recovery console when booting from cd.

When I typed "help" fdisk was not listed as one of the available commands.

Please in the future:

Do not start a new thread to point to an existing one in an attempt to draw eyeballs towards it. You are welcome to bump your thread, we request that you give it at least 24 hours before doing so (we have members from around the world who post here, they are sleeping while we are working, so give em time to see your post before bumping). A point to consider is that quite a few of our major posting members don't browse the boards in the sense that something on the second page gets lost. They view all new post since their last visit and go through them page by page, so your post isn't on any specific page for them and they will likely come across it.

As for a response to your actual question in this thread, I'm sure there are some chat rooms, they probably exist on some IRC node somewhere. freenode (? it's been a while) seemed to be the place for relatively official IRC "chat rooms" a while back. Might be a place to check for your demanding requests.

As for this post, I'll close it as it appears to be an attempt to simply direct eyeballs towards your other existing thread. If you have any questions or problems about this closure, contact me directly or the Site Admin, Jeremy.

Thanks for your understanding!
