    [mythbuntu] LIRC-induced hard lockups

    So I've been running mythbuntu 10.04 for some time. I don't really want to upgrade because it's my primary TV-runnin' box. It's been mostly great for years, but it's got this one issue that's driving...
  2. Re: SATA link hard resets without other symptoms

    Bit more information. It happened a fifth time in the early afternoon yesterday and hasn't since. dmesg tells me that the specific ATA error is "PHYRdyChg". NCQ is not enabled. I ran a SMART...

    Bit of a poser here. I'm running a Lucid server with a large mdadm raid array. Roughly every 8 days, I find a message like this in the log:

  4. [ubuntu] Re: Touchpad problem: cursor jumps (Ubuntu 12.10, 64bits)

    I can add that I tried using xinput to disable and re-enable the touchpad, and that didn't fix the problem. I'm trying to work out if there's a software way to reset the USB port since unplugging and...
  5. [ubuntu] Re: Touchpad problem: cursor jumps (Ubuntu 12.10, 64bits)

    Does this happen right away, or only after you've been using the machine for some time?

    [ubuntu] Re: Memory leak specific to Swap?

    Unfortunately, I've only got 2 GB, and it's a notebook, so upgrade paths are limited. I actually could probably make do without any swap about 2/3 of the time, but google reader and twitter are both...

    [ubuntu] Re: 12.04 Desktop Cube Compiz Issues

    Thanks. That cleared up my issue. I did notice that the CPU usage of compiz shot through the roof until I turned off some of the visual effects that defaulted on, but otherwise it's fairly smooth.
