    Re: What to do with an AMD64 Static Binary?

    Apparently I don't either. I must have been trying to do and remember too many things at once, got frustrated and confused. I've used Linux at the command line off and on for several years, but I...

    Re: What to do with an AMD64 Static Binary?

    Well I've read many reports of people compiling and using the source successfully, but not of using the static binary.

    This utility doesn't make sense in the context of Windows. It is...

    Re: What to do with an AMD64 Static Binary?

    How do I execute it? As I said it is an .exe file, which I've never heard of using with Linux, though Linux files can have any random name. When I double click it in Thunar file manager, nothing...

    Re: Video card and APIC kernel panic

    It is on the low end of VDPAU capability. I frequently buy a motherboard on a raging special, even if it doesn't have my preferred integrated peripherals. But all things equal, I'd rather have an...
  6. Poll: Re: Mythbuntu 10.4: to upgrade or not to upgrade?

    I don't think you need to add the mythbuntu repos. From memory, go into MCC and enable autobuilds. Choose "fixes" or "stable" whatever they call it, (i.e. not "trunk" or development"). Close MCC....

    Re: HOWTO: Linux Hulu Desktop integration

    I haven't set Lirc up to run multiple daemons, and I don't see it when looking in the process list.

    This was all happening on MythBuntu 9.10/0.22. I am now on Mythbuntu 10.04/0.23, but it is...

    Re: HOWTO: Linux Hulu Desktop integration

    I didn't change anything in Lirc to not screw up Myth, so I might have it configured sub-prime. But it is hard to tell since Lirc documentation is so bad.

    I only mapped the Hulu codes to the Lirc...

    Re: HOWTO: Linux Hulu Desktop integration

    One of my irritations trying to set up Hulu, was that no good documentation exists of all the configuration options in Hulu, and the LIRC documentation is cursory and out of date. To make up for...

    Re: Mythbuntu 10.04/0.23 Upgrade - Be Careful...

    Well it was pretty clear it wasn't a full upgrade, and it was suggested by Synaptic, so I don't know if it is something MythBuntu could control?

    My impression from the MythBuntu website was that...

    Re: Mythbuntu 10.04/0.23 Upgrade - Be Careful...

    Well after enabling autobuilds in 9.10 and updating, Synaptic suggests a partial upgrade.

    I didn't do it at first. Since Myth quit working after enabling autobuilds, I think reasonably assumed...

  14. Re: Active EIT scan brings system to its knees after 10.04/0.23 upgrade

    Last night I did another update, hoping that would fix things, and it mostly did. It is about 80% better in responsiveness across the board in Myth and other apps. Load average is still a lot higher...

    Re: Mythbuntu running really slow

    I'm not so sure it is a RAM issue. I've got 2 gigs and the equivalent of a C2D 2.9ghz processor. I have similar problems after upgrading from 9.10 to 10.04. TOP shows somewhat elevated RAM and...

  17. Re: Active EIT scan brings system to its knees after 10.04/0.23 upgrade

    I finally disabled EIT scan on my Myth box. It did improve things, but it is still a very sluggish machine doing anything (even stuff unrelated to Myth, like Firefox). I'd say it improved the...

    MythTV complete backup and restore process

    So I've given up trying to fix my upgraded Mythbuntu combined FE/BE. I went from 9.10 to 10.04, and the computer has become unusably slow after the transition, though it technically works.

  19. Re: Active EIT scan brings system to its knees after 10.04/0.23 upgrade

    Have you tried disabling EIT scan to see if that resolves the high load average? After upgrade, my Mythbox frontend and mythweb are very sluggish, and the disk is always churning even when I am not...

    Re: Any problems with my build?

    Looks great.

    That motherboard's onboard video card supports VDPAU, which is awesome. Looks like you need to use Bob X2 deinterlacer to prevent audio stuttering
