I think that I might have put user_xattr on the wrong part of the second partition but not sure. Thanks for trying though. I tried looking through google and no luck either on other websites.
    Ah, forgive me for not reading through the entire thread. You really should ask this question in a support area, and as sdowney717 suggested, mention which file system you're using. I think the xattr fix requires ext4.

    One is ext4 the other is ext3.

    Not a problem. Thanks for showing me where I could some extra help. I just figured I would ask here first before I made a thread about it.

    Re: Netflix On Ubuntu

    You have 2 partitions?
    You can convert ext3 to ext4 without losing data

    To enable the ext4 features on an existing ext3 filesystem, use the command:
    # tune2fs -O extents,uninit_bg,dir_index /dev/DEV
    WARNING: Once you run this command, the filesystem will no longer be mountable using the ext3 filesystem!
    After running this command (specifically, after setting the uninit_bg parameter), you MUST run fsck to fix up some on-disk structures that tune2fs has modified:
    # e2fsck -fDC0 /dev/DEV

    I tried this with Ubuntu 10.10 and everything loaded OK, but I only get sound and no video. Anyone have a solution? Thanks.

    I'm running 12.10 with Gnome-Shell fglrx version 9.0 and followed this guide, and it works, it runs, I can actually watch movies on Ubuntu. Really considering destroying Windows 8 - http://www.techrepublic.com/blog/ope...untu-1210/4019
    Where's [slooksterpsv] been? - I had Catastrophic partition alignment failure. I lost 90%+ of my data, and just now got it back fixed and working.

    Is your home directory auto-mounted? That caused me problems as you described (claim that I needed user_xattr). Switching to an account with a local home directory took care of that.

    Re: Netflix On Ubuntu

    Still too choppy on a netbook with xubuntu. Even though it worked fine on windows 7. I don't really take it anywhere though and have and watch netflix mostly on my ps3 and have a nexus 7 and vita for on the go son not a really big deal.
    Whoever came up with the phrase "There is no such thing as a stupid question" obviously never had the internet.
