    Re: Shoutcast TV no longer working...

    A couple of conclusions. First, although Streamtuner2 no longer works as far as Shoutcast TV is concerned, I found a web-site that recognising this, provides a Shoutcast TV stream-list of its own....

    I had this problem and someone here pointed me in the right direction. It was caused by hidden boot-files from a deleted WinXP install on a NTFS partition. Just delete them and update Grub2,...

    [ubuntu] Re: 'What' is 'nfs-utils'???

    Given what has just happened to the Ubuntu forum, I think I might be safer hiding behind the holey skirts of 10.04! ;)

    But seriously, I have 12.04LTS (tried it, hated Unity etc.) and have already...
  11. Wine 1.6-1_i386 (Stable) for Ubuntu 10.04LTS.

    I know 10.04 has gone EOL but I'm also sure that there are a lot of people still using it! Personally, I'll stick with it till the repositories are pulled, then move on to something that doesn't...

  15. [ubuntu] Re: Installing Gnome Power Manager 2.32 (Lucid) issues...

    That turned out a bit of a nightmare. I managed to somehow break gcc while doing this - ended up with 2 gcc installation folders, 4.4 and 4.4.3, the 4.4.3 folder containing just a single file, but...
