  1. Re: Is PulseAudio actually worth all the pain?

    Pulseaudio is fiddly but it's great when it works. I had a "home theater" (read computer next to my bed) that didn't have any speakers attached, so I just used Pulse to send the audio to my main...

    Re: python.org, not python.com!

    I expect the hitrate on python.com has just gone through the roof as a legion of geeks go to "make sure" the OP isn't lying.

    Re: Mutter (from GNOME-SHELL) won't build

    You could try editing the Makefile so that it doesn't build with the -Werror flag (which treats warnings as errors and is being used in the build-output you posted). Not sure which files to edit...

    Re: Beginner programming challenge #4

    I've written up a program that matches this brief, though not being a beginner, I don't think I should post it yet.

    Re: Python: Cutting the end off a txt file

    Bit simpler/more Pythonic way of doing the same:

    if line.startswith("not"):
    break

    Debs can be pulled directly off the mirrors (over HTTP), you just have to have the correct address. For example, the latest firefox-3.0-branding package from jaunty-updates is at:

    Poll: Re: Are you using Ext4?

    I'm using ext4 for all partitions (/ and /home) on my desktop, my Eee 701 and my sister's HP MiniNote 2133. Each of them boots in about 20 seconds and I haven't had any problems with it at all.
  15. Re: Does 9.04 have out of the box support for ASUS EEE netbooks?

    Jaunty UNR (netbook remix) works fine out of the box for me on my Eee 701. There are some issues (outlined in the UNR release notes) of screen size where a lot of applications just don't fit on the...
  16. Re: Where's all the "9.04 is the worst version ever!" threads?

    I'd have to agree with this. Jaunty is definitely the best release for me so far. Main desktop works almost perfectly (a few bugs here and there, but no real problems that will get in the way), my...
  17. Re: Where's all the "9.04 is the worst version ever!" threads?

    Jaunty is just so awesome that noone has had a problem? Hardly likely to be honest, but you never know. Or maybe it is so bad that it has completely destroyed peoples computers, so bad in fact that...

    Re: I can't believe how good Jaunty is

    If you do manual partitioning setup (which is much easier in Jaunty than it has been before) you can choose to use ext4. Otherwise, the installer defaults to ext3.
