  1. Re: Sound related question (sending sound through a usb port to receiver)

    Linux, which has moved on to the "Advanced Linux Sound Architechture", no longer uses /dev/dsp for most applications. I'm unsure of what hardware you are describing, but there are many supported USB...

    Re: Linux advocacy/zealotry must stop NOW!

    I don't advocate "Linux". I advocate the attitude 'it' has towards community and development; open source software, and in a wider sense, socialism. I believe that a community driven by a love of...

  7. Re: [IDEA]: More informative error messages/education for build-essential and ndiswra

    No; that's the issue: build-essential isn't required to run GCC. Only the package "gcc" is. I guess there could be some kind of info given, but atm it only (as far as I recall) advises you install...

    Re: [IDEA] Nautilus "Restore from Trash"

    Well, yes. But it should be trivial to have Nautilus create a gconf cache when a file is moved to .Trash which specifies where it came from. It could then use this to restore the file when necessary.

    Re: [IDEA]: Warning about disk being full

    Indeed. The system should not *need* disk space purely to login. In theory, temp files should be created in /tmp (which should be a tmpfs in RAM). In practice, this does not always happen, and when a...

    Re: [IDEA]: Add-on CDs

    PriceChild, it's not as much a niche as you might think; and APTonCD is kinda a one-time jobbie. A cron job in the datacentre would be better; but the possibility of that all depends on the server...

    Re: [IDEA]: Add-on CDs

    How do we select the most popular packages? Does everyone use the "popularity-contest" utility? I would prefer a simple apt-mirror of the full Ubuntu repositories (which I have heard amounts to about...

    Re: [IDEA]: Permissions fixing tool

    It's very, very difficult to know which files should have which permissions, and I'm unsure how OS X accomplishes it. Many services install their own users and groups, and their files are owned by...
  14. Re: [IDEA]: More informative error messages/education for build-essential and ndiswra

    aysiu, you say "If someone is trying to compile something from source, she should get some kind of message that build-essential is required and that the metapackage can be installed off the CD"....
  15. Re: [IDEA] Option on Desktop CD for Ubiquity sans live session

    In these cases, Ubiquity would not function. The alternate CD, which provides for this use case, installs packages rather than copy over the currently running system, which Ubiquity does. We don't...

  20. Re: What is the best virtualization software for Linux?

    Yes. Indeed. And I'm very pro-VirtualBox (and, to be explicit, note that when I have virtualising to do, that's what I use, following SVN development). However, it's not in the repositories; whereas...

    Re: Tight situation... WordPerfect

    I suggest she learn to live with it. Sorry. Admittedly, that wasn't very helpful. However, I'm sure that she'd soon adapt (especially if she were to be using Ubuntu, say), and enjoy doing so.
