    [all variants] WakeOnLAN almost working

    Greets, everyone. I'm very close to having WakeOnLAN working properly (using ethtool and wakeonlan). I'm able to wake the system up from sleep via wakeonlan. The only problem is that once it goes...
  4. Re: Star Wars Best of PC, KotOR Install Problems

    How are you going about launching the game? The game's entry on WINE's Application Database (http://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.php?sClass=version&iId=13024) says the default launcher doesn't...

  7. Re: How can I move the VisualBoyAdvance.cfg file to ~/.vba?

    I ran into this problem with a little game called Spheres of Chaos. Short of editing the source code of the program, there's not really a *proper* way of doing this as far as I know, but the...

    Re: [HELP] MAME on my laptop

    KXMAME has always worked nicely for me. Sadly, it's a KDE3 program, so don't expect it to integrate well into a modern desktop environment. It's definitely the most configurable MAME GUI I've seen...

  12. Re: HOWTO: Wii Remote in Ubuntu Intrepid Ibex (8.10)

    Has anyone here been able to run wminput as a user rather than root in Jaunty? I use the Wiimote for controlling my media center and it's kind of a pain to have to put in my password every time I...

    I should've pointed out that you'll need to repeat the installation process for the module whenever the kernel is upgraded. Hopefully that will solve the issue some of you have been having.
