    It displays itself in lspci as "ALi Corporation M5457 AC'97 Modem...

    Re: Howto: VirtualBox without opening the shell.

    This looks interesting. How is the speed compared to vmware or qemu with the accelerator module?

    And it's GPL now so I guess it won't be long until it reaches debian (and after that ubuntu)...
  4. Re: HOWTO: Finally! How to easily change your desktop to a random file at specified t

    Thank you very much! This is really nice! :)

    One question though: how do I make the array read files from 2 or more seperate directories? Would a "files=(./dir1/*.jpg ./dir2/*.jpg)" work?

    Re: HOWTO: NFS Server/Client

    That should be:
    sudo mount 192.168.1.2:/home/styven/Music /home/honeyh/styven/Music
    Did you forget the slash over there?
    Also are you exporting /home/styven/Music exlcusively on 192.168.1.2 or is...

    Re: HOWTO: NFS Server/Client

    You have to create your mountpoint. You can do than with

    sudo mkdir /media/serverhome
    change serverhome with whatever you like

    Then open your fstab file with

    sudo gedit /etc/fstab
    and...

    Re: HOWTO: NFS Server/Client

    What is your 2nd laptop's (client) ip? Are you restarting nfs with:

    sudo /etc/init.d/nfs-kernel-server restart
    sudo exportfs -a
    after you make the changes?

    Can you ping the server from the...

    Just assign static ips to all the pcs you want to have access to and you'll be fine.

    Re: HOWTO: NFS Server/Client

    The server.mydomain.com can just be the ip address of your desktop in your LAN, so you could just use:

    sudo mount 192.168.1.10:/remotefolder /mountpoint
    for example

    Or if you add an entry to...

  12. Re: HowTo: Stop Firefox from loading URL w/ middle mouse button

    Thank you, thank you, thank you! I use a laptop touchpad and the middle click is mapped to the right-top edge which I accidentally pressed all the time. This was a major annoyance for me.

    I found a workaround for this. I have the mountpoints on the server under /media and I just did an

    Re: HOWTO: NFS Server/Client

    Yeah, I have the same problem here. I ended up making new mountpoints and assigning them explicitly as you did. I don't believe there's a fix for this.

    Other than that it's a great HOWTO, thank...
  15. Poll: Re: poll : Did you upgrade to Dapper or reinstall ? Did you encounter problems?

    I would be devastated if that happened to me. My data are more important than any OS and most of them I can't find anywhere else, so I always keep a synced backup on a second PC.

    So... with 476...

  17. Poll: Re: poll : Did you upgrade to Dapper or reinstall ? Did you encounter problems?

    Yeah, thanks for the recommendation. I was considering FC5 as well as Zenwalk which from a preliminary test seems really fast (it boots at 1/3 of the time it takes breezy to boot!). But Fedora has so...
  18. Poll: Re: poll : Did you upgrade to Dapper or reinstall ? Did you encounter problems?

    No, I'm not recommending Dapper to anyone. Edgy might be a different beast but by then I will probably have moved to another distro and probably recommending that instead. If I try Edgy when it comes...
  19. Poll: Re: poll : Did you upgrade to Dapper or reinstall ? Did you encounter problems?

    Dapper is completely unusable for me. I'm having major problems and i've tried every installation method there is.

    2. Clean install with the...

  22. Re: HOWTO: Create Mp3s with Grip and understand what you are doing.

    @ Denim

    I don't think it's possible to get multiple outputs (flac + mp3) with grip. The best you can do is rip to wav and then encode that to flac and mp3. However, you can have a try with ABCDE....
  23. Re: HOWTO: Create Mp3s with Grip and understand what you are doing.

    -h is not a good idea. -q 2 (-h) became -q 3 in newer versions of LAME and that is the recommended setting which is also the default. -q 2 is equivalent to the older -q 1 and might show some...
  24. Re: HOWTO: Create Mp3s with Grip and understand what you are doing.

    This is a common misunderstanding. Joint-stereo is always better than forced stereo with LAME. You can read more here: http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/forums/index.php?act=ST&f=15&t=683 Especially post...

    Well, you made a thread about creating mp3s. If you do not wish to provide any sane settings then you should point (in a clear way) people to wherever they could find such information. Sorry if I...
