    [ubuntu] Re: LAN Share drops every 24 hours?

    So watched the status, and the only thing I could see was that once the U machine stopped talking to the W machine the status still showed the external drive attached to the U machine which was being...

    [ubuntu] Re: LAN Share drops every 24 hours?

    But it's the Ubuntu machine, not the Windows machine, that I'm having to reboot so how would that be waking up the drive connected to the Windows machine?

    [ubuntu] Re: LAN Share drops every 24 hours?

    So a couple days went by with no problem, and then this afternoon the Windows drive disappeared. Tried the mount -a (sudo of course), and no luck. Tried a few other things, and no luck. Rebooted, and...

    [ubuntu] Re: LAN Share drops every 24 hours?

    Willing to consider that as a possibility, but then why would it still work with everything but the LAN share? Would simply forcing a remount work in that case? I have the drive in my /etc/fstab...

    [ubuntu] LAN Share drops every 24 hours?

    Upstairs machine is U14.04 64-bit with a Powerline Ethernet adapter set to connect to my home network through my Nighthawk router and wireless access. So U correctly sees it as a wired connection and...
  6. [ubuntu] Re: On 14.04 trying to get old home videos off DVD - Any tool that works?

    That's not quite true, which is where the .IFO and other files come in. Per the definition:

    "OB can contain digital video, digital audio, subtitles, DVD menus and...
  7. [ubuntu] Re: On 14.04 trying to get old home videos off DVD - Any tool that works?

    VOB Copy literally just copies the VOB files, which you don't need a separate utility for. Handbrake seems to have issues with the fact I had created a menu for the DVD (some old version of Nero I...
  8. [ubuntu] On 14.04 trying to get old home videos off DVD - Any tool that works?

    I have a couple of DVDs I recently found after going through some boxes of some family videos. Unfortunately I made a "real" DVD of these so I have 4 VOB files containing 7 videos. This results in...
  9. Re: Any 3d online golf game compatible with Ubuntu 14.04?

    So tried to play both. EA shows you the link, but even if you login to Origin first will not actually let you into the site. Not sure if playing with the User Agent would help or not. WGT works, but...
  10. Any 3d online golf game compatible with Ubuntu 14.04?

    Ideally I'd like to play EA's PGA Tour Online, but World Golf Tour would also be nice. Or maybe there's something else out there? I would think these might work given the use of Unity's Web Player,...
  11. [ubuntu] Nautilus will not let me change permissions of external hard drive

    Just installed 14.04, and it automounted my 9TB external USB3 drive. So far so good. But when I right click the drive in Nautilus to select Properties, and then choose permissions it shows that the...
  12. [ubuntu] Better to point to new ppas or install and reconfigure?

    So I have put in a decent amount of time getting my setup the way I want it, but I am hearing good things about this release. Part of me wants to just change my repositories to point to the new...
  13. [ubuntu] Re: 12.10 64-bit - Nautilus spins and spins on Home, sometimes locks machine up

    Adding noatime causes cifs to bomb and then will not mount the drive. So I think that option is out. Oh well...
  14. [ubuntu] Re: 12.10 64-bit - Nautilus spins and spins on Home, sometimes locks machine up

    Will try the noatime option, but I'm not very confident that is the issue.

    As far as the cabling and all that, not sure if I made it clear that the share works flawlessly for the first couple of...

    Anyone? Hello?

  17. [ubuntu] Re: 12.10 64-bit - Nautilus spins and spins on Home, sometimes locks machine up

    Anyone? Or is this just a lost cause?
  18. [ubuntu] Re: 12.10 64-bit - Nautilus spins and spins on Home, sometimes locks machine up

    OK, found the tweak tool, installed, and made the suggested change. 2 hours later, same lock up.

    Is there any key combination that should still work when the machine is in a busy loop just as a...
  19. [ubuntu] Re: 12.10 64-bit - Nautilus spins and spins on Home, sometimes locks machine up

    As expected, since I moved the share to mount under /media, the home directory does not lock up at all. But when the share stops responding the machine locks up tight as a drum. I'm rather...

    [ubuntu] Re: Samba Issues

    One other consideration is whether you even need to use Samba. I was having difficulty connecting from Windows to a Samba share on my 12.10 installation. So I removed the share from Samba and tried...
  21. [ubuntu] Re: 12.10 64-bit - Nautilus spins and spins on Home, sometimes locks machine up

    I have moved the network share to now mount under the /media folder. Figure if that is the problem, then at least I won't see the clocking in the home folder. Will see how it goes.
  22. [ubuntu] Re: 12.10 64-bit - Nautilus spins and spins on Home, sometimes locks machine up

    The raid mountpoint is in /media/ewang, so while it could be an issue, I don't think that's it. The share drive (downstairs computer) is mounting on my home directory though, so perhaps that's an...
  23. [ubuntu] Re: 12.10 64-bit - Nautilus spins and spins on Home, sometimes locks machine up

    At that level I just have the default folders, the usual hidden files, and the mount point for my Share. Well under 100 files. Again, it works just fine when it first comes up, it's only later (an...

    Re: Best alternative (opensource) of DreamWeaver?

    He's saying Kompozer is dead, not Bluegriffon. Of course since they are now using the Gecko engine that is less of a concern.
  25. [ubuntu] Re: 12.10 64-bit - Nautilus spins and spins on Home, sometimes locks machine up

    Just happened again, and again SysLog just shows the gap - no obvious errors. Any ideas of even where to look would be appreciated. I'm suspecting network - but that's just a guess based on where...
