    [ubuntu] Re: No Sound Ubuntu

    I'm having the same problem after an upgrade from 11.04 to 12.04. No sound, and videos skip ahead as fast as they can be downloaded. Tried installing VLC to see if that would resolve the problem, but...

    Yup, commenting out "skip-bdb" is crucial if you've kept your old my.cnf - as I had. Thanks.
  5. Re: NFS Server performance is poor (bad, slow) writing to Ubuntu Server 9.10 Karmic K

    No problem with speed Linux-Linux, but copying a large file from OSX to a 10.04.1 NFS server takes over 6 minutes for what's about 30 seconds from a Linux client.

    This was the advice I got on the pulseaudio list from Frode Severin Hatlevik:

  7. [SOLVED] Re: How to: Switch pulseaudio inputs and outputs with one click

    I'm told there should be a way involving putting a file with the right code into /etc/udev/rules.d. It could spot the device being plugged in and run the script then. Spent a while fussing with it,...

    [all variants] Re: How to safely stop/remove PulseAudio in 10.04

    I'd love to deep-six pulse. Really. But just removing it doesn't make sound work. Please give an entire recipe for success, if you're going to urge that.

    [SOLVED] Re: ubuntu 10.04 pulseaudio sound problem

    Not for me either. Is there some way to rip pulse out of the system and run something that doesn't fail so many people so often?
  12. [ubuntu] Re: No sound + "Waiting for sound system to respond"

    Yup, I've just been through reinstalling Pulse several times, including deleting all its config files. Now I don't get the "Waiting for sound system to respond" message - I just go to System >...

    [ubuntu] Re: Virtualization in 10.04

    [ubuntu] Re: apt-get & synaptic segfaults

    This is not good advice. It just plain doesn't work. In fact, it breaks things even more to remove the library. Multiple segfaults on running aptitude -q safe-upgrade.
