    Virtual Box problems in 64 bit.

    I don't know if any other had this problem or not. I installed VirtualBox on Gutsy 64 and it knocked out my audio dependencies and Wifi. I has to do with using mostly Xine for most of my streaming. Luckily, I had a complete backup (via uBackup!) and was able to restore all. Will VMWare or Wine run under 64-bit? Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    As I stated, I got VB to run in 64-bit, but it knocked out my sound and Wifi. This happend twice. I figured out how to do a quick restore of my device files to get them back. VMware locked up and was a pain to uninstall. I only need VB or VM to run Nero. It does a much better job in dvd backup and ripping than the current programs in Linux. Apparently, all the programs I have tried in Linux have fixed compression rates for encoders. If I am wrong, please let me know. Still working on it.

    AFAIK xDVDshrink (available through automatix) allows the user to choose a compression ratio..
