    [all variants] Exporting client directory via ssh

    I suspect the answer to this might be "you cant do it" but...

    It would be useful if a remote session accessed via ssh could read and write files on a directory local to the client. This is the...

    It doesn't take much to fool it. I plugged in a KVM switch. Even without a keyboard or mouse plugged in it now works OK and /var/log/messages contains the lines

    Re: lirc IR receiver issue

    Just a thought - have you checked the transmitter?

    Quick tip for checking IR transmitters: a digital camera often has sensitivity in the IR. Point one at the LED and see if you can see it light...

    [SOLVED] Re: Sound is muted after reboot

    Delete /var/lib/alsa/asound.state, set the controls in the mixer (you might find the actual problem is in the front channel) and then, as root, run alsactl store.
  10. Re: WARNING - System-breaking update on Karmic

    I ran today's updates after saving with alsactl so I don't know if anything downloaded today would have fixed it.

    From what I've seen through Googling & looking at what's on the box I think the...
  11. Re: WARNING - System-breaking update on Karmic

    The solution seems to be to delete /var/lib/alsa/asound.state, set the controls and then run alsactl store. [Edit - you have to do this as root]

    The mixer must be one of the few gui apps that...
  12. Re: WARNING - System-breaking update on Karmic

    Well, the updates have filtered through.

    Front-end installed, back-end disappeared but could then be reinstalled OK.

    Plugins had to be reinstalled.

    And guess what? Alsa has gone back to...

  14. Re: WARNING - System-breaking update on Karmic

    I'm not sure whether that question was directed to me or mythding.

    In may case this is a Karmic Mythbuntu install from CD so it started off as 0.22 but whether or not a particular file is trunk...

    Re: HOWTO:Hauppauge WinTV NovaT500 Jaunty 64 bit

    1. Under Karmic the firmware is treated as restricted drivers & has to be specifically downloaded.

    Re: HOWTO:Hauppauge WinTV NovaT500 Jaunty 64 bit

    This problem doesn't occur with the S/W as installed from the CD. It appears to be a bug in the updates. I'm downloading Karmic so it'll be interesting to see if it's still there.
