  1. Poll: Re: Should we keep the compiz cube in unity?

    It's a deal-breaker for me - my workflow is set up with the cube in mind, and has been for the past 3 years or so. I won't upgrade from 10.04 if an upgrade involves loss of the cube.

    One of the things, as somewhat mentioned above, which can cause this is Compiz. The solution is to go to Preferences > CompizConfig Settings Manager > Gnome Compatibility (you'll find this at the top...
  5. [ubuntu] Re: Please help-lost partitions after upgrade

    You guys are geniuses: I followed your instructions, ronparent, and removed the so-called fakeraid partitions. The thing still won't boot, but now, rebooting into the live CD, I can mount most of the...
  6. [ubuntu] Re: Please help-lost partitions after upgrade

    So it seems there are overlying (ie conflicting) partitions on sdb and nvidia_aebeeibc (I'm reasonably certain these refer to the same physical drive - note the identical disk identifier):

  7. [ubuntu] Re: Please help-lost partitions after upgrade

    Thanks ronparent and oldfred - I think I'm beginning to get some insight as to what's happening here: I think Ubuntu is seeing the markers for the hardware RAID on sda and attempting to build an...

    Many thanks for the replies.

    This computer has never had windows on it - I assembled the computer myself after picking out the parts - it's custom made.

    Priority 89 is fine - we've been running with that for 2 years, rock solid.

    Your problem looks very similar to the bug here filed 3 days ago on the JACK bug tracking site.

    Here are some things that occur to me:

    - we use an older version of JACK (0.109.2). I notice...
  19. [lubuntu] Re: How do I get my firewire M-audio interface working?

    We use 8.04 exclusively because the real time kernel has been largely broken on every subsequent release. I don't know that this is your problem with Lucid (and we were just discussing this morning...

    [SOLVED] Re: Real Time Kernel

    Trulan: you've answered your own question - your summary of the problems with rt kernels is precisely why we haven't upgraded any of our machines. We use 8.04 with a latency of 0.7ms when recording...

    [SOLVED] Re: Real Time Kernel

    Does real time pre-emption work in 10.04? It's been broken, as far as we know, since 8.04 - all our studio machines use 8.04 for that reason.
  22. [lubuntu] Re: How do I get my firewire M-audio interface working?

    Perhaps try the instructions here - they're for the FireWire Solo but may have takeaways for your unit.

    Good luck!

    Probably not the solution you're looking for, but I can tell you that the real-time kernel is rock-solid in 8.04 - we aren't even considering moving our studio machines off the LTS release until the...
