Problems with lphdisk

December 8, 2003 - Categories: -Uncategorized

lphdisk does not seem to recognize my hibernation partition. Here is the output of fdisk -l /dev/hda:

Disk /dev/hda: 20.0 GB, 20003880960 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 2432 cylinders

Partition table entries are not in disk order

and the output of lphdisk:

Warning: Cannot determine physical RAM.
Reccomended partition size is unknown.
Warning: /proc/partitions does not match partition table.
Error: Unable to find partition of type A0.

Training

The normal arrangement is HRD goes into a contract with the instructor, but since it's a short course, we'll just send the fee to Mr. B, and they'll pay without the usual accounting requirements. Should we continue to avail of your services and for larger engagements... Check into consultantship. Possibly also JITSE training.

Found my keys in pocket of khaki jacket. Extremely fortunate as discovered upon entering Ateneo that no classes meant buildings were closed and needed department key to get my phone charger and chessboard.

Burrito attempt flop.

Writing off attempt to make burritos, as lettuce makes burrito soggy. Must figure out how to do it properly. In meantime, will probably start exploring egg-based dishes. Resolve to never prepare more than a day's worth of food at time, as had to throw away stocked-up burrito stuff upon discovering was not partial to the taste and texture. Toasting did not improve it.
