  1. [ubuntu] Re: Ubuntu lucid fails to boot if one of the sata hard disks is unplugged (not boot d

    I know about this, that's not the problem.

    The problem was that I had turned the splash screen off and when I thought it had hanged it was actually waiting for me to press some button to ignore...
  2. [ubuntu] Re: Ubuntu lucid fails to boot if one of the sata hard disks is unplugged (not boot d

    Nope. I commented out all entries in the fstab except the root/home partition and it booted just fine. If I uncomment a non-present drive it fails to boot again.

    Boot script output is attached
  3. [ubuntu] Re: Ubuntu lucid fails to boot if one of the sata hard disks is unplugged (not boot d

    Ok so I found the problem - Lucid apparently fails to boot if any entries in the fstab do not mount/exist.

    This is an absolutely ridiculous bug and I have no idea how it made it into an LTS...
  4. [ubuntu] Ubuntu lucid fails to boot if one of the sata hard disks is unplugged (not boot disk)

    So I unplugged one of my 1.5TB storage drives to lend the cable to a friend, assuming ubuntu would be able to boot fine without it. It doesn't apparently, it gets to a certain point then says a lot...

    Re: Howto: Change the hostname of a system SAFELY

    Hey, just follow the instructions in the original post. You don't need to rely on the graphical way for that to work.
  6. [SOLVED] Re: No sound on Intel HDA after upgrading to Lucid

    What is the output of pulseaudio -vv?
  7. Re: Howto: Speed up 720p or 1080p decoding using multithreaded mplayer

    An update: Since I wrote this guide, vdpau has proven itself to be a mature, reliable and practical way of playing high definition videos on linux machines.

    By far the easiest way to get pain free...
  8. [SOLVED] Re: AC3 - SPDIF Passthrough - Pulseaudio - Karmic 9.10

    Try running your media player like this:

    pasuspender $MEDIA_PLAYER_APP

    This will suspend pulseaudio while the app is running and allow it full control of the sound card.
  9. Re: Howto: Install and use projectM music visualizer with pulseaudio support on Hard

    It's free software, if you don't like it, don't use it.

    If you want to file a bug, better tell the projectm developers rather than on here where nobody is actually involved with the project.

    Re: HOWTO: Surround sound in pulseaudio

    If you are willing to "beta test" the new method, then follow these steps:

    You need to add this ppa:

    Re: HOWTO: Surround sound in pulseaudio

    Check the first post again guys, a solution is on it's way, I need to be sure it works ok for me before I write it up though. Give it a week or so, it should be up here.

  12. Re: Howto: Speed up 720p or 1080p decoding using multithreaded mplayer

    Are you definately using xv? If compiz is enabled, are you definately using direct rendering (not indirect rendering)?

  13. Re: Howto: Speed up 720p or 1080p decoding using multithreaded mplayer

    Seeing as this is an experimental branch of mplayer, it is likely to be fairly buggy and sometimes even fail to compile.

    It looks as though the site is just down temporarily.

    Thanks pascal16, correction has been made.
  16. Howto: Speed up 720p or 1080p decoding using multithreaded mplayer

    Hi all

    If you are like me, you may have tried to play some 720p or 1080p high definition H264 film clips on your computer and it has stuttered or lagged behind audio, making it unwatchable.

    Re: HOWTO: Surround sound in pulseaudio

    As far as I can tell, alsa thinks you only have two channels...

    I know it sounds stupid, are you sure you actually HAVE a surround sound card?

    Re: HOWTO: Nvidia Driver + VDPAU + Smplayer +Mplayer

    You'd better ask on the nvidia forums then, nvnews.net is the place to go, in the linux support forum.

    Make sure you follow the sticky for reporting a vdpau bug and someone will help you sort out...
  20. Re: Howto: Install and use projectM music visualizer with pulseaudio support on Hard

    Projectm from sv has been broken for ages. Next time a proper release is made I'll write a guide up here on how to install it, until then you're best off sticking with one of the older releases.

    What card/driver version do you have? Does -vo vdpau work if you don't specify any extra -vc options?

    Not much anyone can help you with unless you post the mplayer output here.

  24. Re: Howto: Set up Ubuntu as a firewall/gateway router with webmin

    This is because windows is crap and doesn't support zeroconf. Blame microsoft for this and ask them to pretty please implement zeroconf for windows.

  25. Re: Howto: Set up Ubuntu as a firewall/gateway router with webmin

    Sounds like a dns issue. Make sure your router is handing out a valid dns server address to clients.
