  1. Accessing ext4 timestamps from extended attributes?

    As is fairly common knowledge by now, ext4 has a 'crtime' timestamp that provides the Creation (or Birth) Time of a file, and that this information is not exposed to stat because of continuing...

    The difference in performance between running MATE nowadays vs. GNOME 2 back then is probably mostly due to whether you have Compiz attached to it. ...

    Re: HOWTO: Install and use the latest FFmpeg and x264

    libx264 only contains the relevant bits for encoding the H.264 streams themselves, it's the x264 CLI application that links to liblsmash or libgpac. In the same way, libx264 wouldn't contain...

    The OP never actually claimed to have a 32-bit processor, it was a question about the 32-bit version of Ubuntu (which could be taken as evidence that the CPU is only 32-bit, but not necessarily). ...

    Re: Forum's 10 today

    Happy Birthday to the forums. I got in on Ubuntu during the 5.10 beta, so I was about a year late. But remembering when the Desktop ISO still used the text-based installer's got to count for...
  7. Boot order resets if external drive isn't powered on

  8. [ubuntu] Re: Keeping a list of installed packages

    Re: HOWTO: Install and use the latest FFmpeg and x264

    A) There's no reason to go around renaming the yasm binary. 'which yasm' will tell you which one is being used if there's more than one installed. The PATH environment variable prefers /usr/local...

    [SOLVED] Re: Updating mingw gcc compiler

    If you were using 14.04 instead of 13.10, this would be a moot point: the MinGW-w64 GCC in Trusty's repos is 4.8.2.

    3.5.8 is not the MinGW-w64 version, it's the version number of Zeranoe's build...

    Re: HOWTO: Install and use the latest FFmpeg and x264

    FFmpeg 2.2 shouldn't be too far off, judging from the mailing list. If it needs to be newer than 2.1.3 (2.1.4 now) due to API changes, then 2.2 would be sufficient whenever it's released.
