  2. [SOLVED] Switching from Mint 15, need partitioning help

    I have a dual boot system (Windows, Mint). I want to keep the Windows partition, and replace Mint with Ubuntu, but I'm confused by what I see in the installation process.

    I'm running 14.10 from a...

    [ubuntu] Re: fancontrol no longer works with Lucid

    I had already tried those things. I did them again, but the behaviour remains exactly the same.

    One further thing. In looking at pwmconfig, which is a script, I see that it's looking for devices...

    I had sensors and fancontrol working fine with ubuntu 9.04. Both broke during my brief sojourn with 9.10. I've just installed 10.06 and sensors seem fine again, but fancontrol doesn't work. Can...

    Re: HD-PVR disappears every other reboot

    I'm actually not running myth. I'm running SageTV. But I don't think that this is a Sage/Myth problem, anyway. The device should appear in /dev, independent of any application using the device,...

    Re: HD-PVR disappears every other reboot

    I'm having a similar problem, but it's not an odd-even thing.

    When my system reboots, either after a power cycle or 'shutdown -r', the two hdpvr's are usually not found so that neither /dev/video0...

    [SOLVED] Re: 9.10 doesn't recognize my hdpvr

    It works now. I think the problem was caused by the fact that I had the v4l development tree with hdpvr working on 9.04 before upgrading.

    I'm not sure exactly what fixed it. I rebuilt the...

    [SOLVED] Re: 9.10 doesn't recognize my hdpvr

    I tried running 9.10 with the old 9.28 (?) kernel, with similar results. I still get no video devices, and I see the error -110 msgs in syslog. On the old kernel, lsusb gives no output, but also no...

    [SOLVED] 9.10 doesn't recognize my hdpvr

    I have two hdpvr's on my system. Under 9.04, they worked fine once I installed the newest v4l development tree. Under 9.10, they're not recognized at all, even though the hdpvr is now included...
  10. [all variants] Re: What is updating my /etc/adjtime and hwclock daily?

    I just had a look, and the time and date gui is something else entirely. Setting it to auto starts ntpd, which keeps the system time in synch with an ntp server somewhere. What I'm asking about is...
  11. [all variants] Re: What is updating my /etc/adjtime and hwclock daily?

    Thanks for the help. I'll do that, but one of my systems is headless. Is it in some config file? Where?
  12. [all variants] What is updating my /etc/adjtime and hwclock daily?

    On one of my ubuntu boxes, the file /etc/adjtime is being updated automatically every day at 23:43. I assume that this means that something is calling hwclock to update it, which is a good thing. ...

    [ubuntu] Re: usbserial module missing from 9.04?

    This is killing me as well. I don't see how to load the new "proposed" kernel. I followed the instructions, but I'm not sure what module to tell aptitude to load. FWIW, I usually use synaptic. Is...

    [ubuntu] What's all this in .gvfs?

    I was trying to backup my home directory ( rsync -avr ~ canseco::backup/aparicio) and was surprised to see LOTS of files being backed up from ~/.gvfs. The files (85GB, according to du) were all...
  15. [ubuntu] suggestion for a quiet, compact computer?

    I'd like to replace my very old tower with something much smaller and quieter. My needs are simple - no gaming, no fancy 3D, limited audio (I'm a musician, but use a mac for that). I don't need...
