For the next person the comes along. Rich_S had the answer. The problem popped up when I replaced my spinning HD with and SSD. Thanks Rich_S for securing the best fix. Removing the nvidia...
WD external HDs have this feature built in to the case electronics. On windows and mac there is a utility to control it. Not sure about Linux.
Bump... Thanks dannyboy. Any one have a more definitive technical answer to this question?
I would like to create a generic disk image that can be moved between motherboards with different but similar chipsets. (The video card would always be nvidia.) My plan is to install Ubuntu...
Nope, this is an on going issue. Here is the Mythtv bug report.
I suggest subscribing to the bug report. Maybe we can raise the exposure of this bug and it...
I tried to get realtime piority running with Mythbuntu 8.10 but didn't have any luck. Hope you find the answer and share it here when you do. -- Jon
Do you have Hauppauge PVR-X50 cards? The kernel module need to be unmounted before sleep and restored afterwards. Without doing this a system will crash when it powers back up and tries to access...
Great job on the HOWTO. While this might be added to mythtv someday, I kind of doubt it. Processor tech is quickly out pacing mythtv's needs, especially with nVidia's new VDPAU driver. I recently...
FYI: there is a current bug in DVD playback. Myth will freeze on still frames. So the first FBI warning you hit ... crash. Example titles that I know of are Cars and Pirates I.
I turned on weekly builds for intrepid, but I have yet to see any new versions come available. I think I'm still using the original build that shipped with 8.10. Can anyone confirm or reject...
I turn on Intrepid weekly builds but it does not appear that there are any updates, as of the last time I looked for updates. This was several days ago now.
For postarity: No software to install. Intall the card(s), boot up, configure in mythtv-setup. This was under 8.10 beta.
I have a working Mythbuntu install. I just found a dirt cheap PVR-150. I haven't had any analog capture cards in this mythbox yet. What steps do I need to take when dropping it into the...
Here is a grub setup that I found works. I may have to watch it closely as new kernels get installed. It chainloads 2 grub installs. The first is my stable OS install on disk0. The second is my...
1) Eject: This is an Intrepid Ibex wide problem not just Mythbuntu 8.10
Work around I found: hit eject, let it eject the disk, let...
I'm having two issues under 8.10 beta.
1) Eject -- If a disk is in the tray, selecting eject from the myth menu eject the disk then brings it back in again.
2) Very unstable DVD playback. Some...
Yes, but how do I get my current grub to boot from the new testbed disk. It won't know anything about it.
FYI: the new testbed OS is just the latest and greatest Ubuntu. My issue is that this...
I've been building a new OS disk on a testbed machine. I would like to now move the OS disk on to my daily use machine and start booting from it while preserving my old install in case I need...
The HOWTO I mentioned says to uninstall powernowd and install speedstep-centrino for a core duo. speedstep-centrino does not exist. powernowd does not scale voltages only frequencies. I'm...
I running a desktop machine with a Core 2 Duo. There does not appear to be any frequency scaling by default. It also appears that the standard HOWTO for this topic no longer applies:
Thanks for the myth-hibernate.sh suggestion. Using that as an example I created myth-suspend.sh. See attached. So far it works great.
I'm wondering what the actual commands behind the menu items Applications/Quit/ Suspend or Hibernate are? I plan on setting up auto power down and auto power up. I know at the core they they...
For the record, this method worked for me. I have not had a suspend problem since implementing this.
My /usr/lib/hal/scripts/linux/hal-system-power-suspend-linux script looks like...
