  1. [SOLVED] Re: Please help! Wifi doesn't work in Oaxaca, Mexico

    YES!!! It works! Your mention of it seeming like a DNS nameserver problem led me to search for those terms, and I ended up here. I looked at my /etc/resolv.conf, which seemed to have some old stuff...

    Hi chili555, thank you so much for working with me on this!

    So actually, two of the three connections I've tried were at cafes with free wifi, and the third is at a friend's place where I'm...
  3. [SOLVED] Re: Please help! Wifi doesn't work in Oaxaca, Mexico

    No luck, I'm afraid. I turned off my laptop to walk over to the place with wifi, and when I turned it back on, the region had reset to US. I changed it back to MX (although it looks like the US...

    Hi chili555, thank you for replying! I've just run the commands. At first the country code showed as 00, and now it's MX. The number ranges have changed as well. I'll try to connect and report back....

    Never mind, it started working all of a sudden. Wish I could explain how, but I'm not actually sure. Anyway, the above instructions did end up working for me.

    [ubuntu] Please help! Replacing graphics card...

    Hi, I hope I'm OK posting this here, since it's really a question about hardware and not Ubuntu.

    I'm traveling in Vietnam, and my laptop has developed a serious graphics problem. Basically,...
  11. [ubuntu] Re: What's wrong with my computer? And have I lost all my files?

    Thanks, fisheater. I'll give PhotoRec a try if I can get the computer working again. Maybe I can salvage some of the files on the hard drive. Sorry to hear you lost a bunch of stuff too.
  12. [ubuntu] What's wrong with my computer? And have I lost all my files?

    I've got a real mess on my hands. There are two issues:

    First, when I start up the computer, just when I get to the login screen, the graphics go screwy and the system freezes. For a while now, I...

    Re: Need to Restore iPod-- no Windows Partition

    Sorry, I was probably a bit unclear... It's not that I want to use the iPod for photos... It's just an error screen that comes up in GTKPod when loading the "Amarok-initialized" iPod. I just wanted...

    Re: Need to Restore iPod-- no Windows Partition

    Thanks, abhiroopb, I see now what happened. I was mostly focused on GTKPod, since that's what I've always used to manage my iPod. In GTKPod, when I plugged in the iPod after deleting the iPod_Control...

    Re: Need to Restore iPod-- no Windows Partition

    mike555, great minds think alike... Soon after I posted, I decided to give Rockbox a try, since I don't have easy access to a Windows/iTunes setup for a restore. Still learning the ropes with...

    Re: Need to Restore iPod-- no Windows Partition

    Just as a warning to others, this didn't work for me. Deleting those directories deletes files that Amarok and GTKPod are not able to recreate.
  17. [ubuntu] Re: How can I change my sound card from 48000 to 44100?

    Some good information here.

    In Audacity, I can set both playback and recording to hw:0,0. If I understand correctly, that bypasses any resampling and gets the sound directly from--or sends it...
  18. [ubuntu] Re: How can I change my sound card from 48000 to 44100?

    I should add that it could well be my mind playing tricks on me, but it would be great if I could just verify somehow that the sound wasn't getting resampled at any point.
  19. [ubuntu] Re: How can I change my sound card from 48000 to 44100?

    Thanks for responding, cariboo907!

    The thing is though, it's not a question of the cassette playback not sounding good. I'm already doing what I can to make it sound as good as possible, including...
  20. [ubuntu] Re: How can I change my sound card from 48000 to 44100?

    Bump.

    Dunno if a little more information would help, but I'm trying to transfer some cassettes to digital using Audacity. I'll be making CDs, so that's why I'm using 44100. I can set the project...
  21. [ubuntu] How can I change my sound card from 48000 to 44100?

    The sound card is an Echo Indigo IO. I seem to remember that when I set it up, there was a file that had a lot of settings, and one of them was rate=48000. I'd like to change that to 44100. But for...
