  1. [SOLVED] Re: Apt error attempting 10.10 -> 11.04 upgrade

    I managed to fix this by deleting all but the most basic deb line. I'm not sure why this was happening because I wasn't referencing the extras repository, but it seems to have fixed it. Commenting...
  2. [SOLVED] Apt error attempting 10.10 -> 11.04 upgrade

    I'm getting the following error which seems quite odd. Trying to change the server to my local country's update server results in the same error (with slightly different URL). I've also disabled any...
  3. [ubuntu] Home partition possibly corrupted (not mounting)

    I've had no problems with 11.04 until today, when I could no longer boot (waiting for /home, or the "serious errors on /home" errors). I see the partition in fdisk, but I'm not sure how to try and...
  4. [ubuntu] Re: Pathetic (SLOW) smbfs/cifs Performance and Good gvfs Performance: Some Findings

    Debian 5 (lenny?) previously. I don't know if it's a coincidence, but everything is very fast now.
  5. [ubuntu] Re: Pathetic (SLOW) smbfs/cifs Performance and Good gvfs Performance: Some Findings

    I recently upgraded my fileserver to Debian 6, and am seeing 80+ MB/s writes and reads (as it should be) via NFS. This is using an up to date 10.10 client.

    [ubuntu] Re: Flash causing tearing in browser

    I am no longer seeing this issue on the PPA version of Firefox 4. Sunspider benchmarks are also faster than Chromium's. :)

    It may be limited just to Youtube, I'm not sure. I have also noticed that pdfs do not display using the Adobe reader plugin after sometime and I have to restart Firefox. It seems like another...

    [ubuntu] Flash causing tearing in browser

    I've noticed lately that when scrolling, the video "tears" and moves along with my scrolling on sites such as Youtube, when it should be fixed in position. Note that it doesn't actually move...

    [ubuntu] Nautilus selection by ctrl + s

    This is a very odd question to be asking in this forum (:P) - I am wondering if there's any equivalent in Win7 for selecting files with Explorer using some sort of shortcut? I'm so used to being able...

    [ubuntu] Using NTFS drive vs formatting to ext4

    I'm about to add a new drive to my system. I'm wondering if I should format it as ext4 as I was planning, or just go with NTFS so that I can access it from my Windows partition. Is this a viable...
  11. [ubuntu] Re: Pathetic (SLOW) smbfs/cifs Performance and Good gvfs Performance: Some Findings

    Tried NFS - get 70MB/s both ways. Guess it's time to dump cifs until it gets fixed.
  12. [ubuntu] Re: Pathetic (SLOW) smbfs/cifs Performance and Good gvfs Performance: Some Findings

    Some new information. I opened up Wireshark and saw many, many QUERY_PATH_INFO transmissions. It's very strange because they reference all sorts of locations. Maybe something Nautilus is doing? I...
  13. [ubuntu] Re: Pathetic (SLOW) smbfs/cifs Performance and Good gvfs Performance: Some Findings

    I tried the various wsize and rsize settings they had, remounted the share, but no changes in speed whatsoever! Switching to NFS wouldn't be a true solution.
  14. [ubuntu] Re: Pathetic (SLOW) smbfs/cifs Performance and Good gvfs Performance: Some Findings

    I'm seeing the same and I'm not sure what's to blame. Windows machines can access at full Gigabit speeds, and while much slower, at least gvfs is still superior to mounting the cifs share. I'm seeing...

    [ubuntu] Re: CIFS head scratcher

    I tried directio as well as rsize and wsize, but it made little difference. Download fluctuated a bit, but upload is still firmly at 15MB/s

    [ubuntu] CIFS head scratcher

    I'm at a loss trying to figure this out. If I have my share (hosted on a Debian server) mounted via fstab (nothing fancy, just my credentials and username), using either smbfs or cifs, I obtain...

    [ubuntu] Slow CIFS (Samba) speeds

    I have a fileserver running Debian, which has worked well for me in the past. I've now upgraded to Ubuntu 10.04, and Samba speeds seem way down. While over FTP I can download at 80MB/s and upload at...

    [ubuntu] Evolution filters

    I'm wondering if this is something that cannot be implemented with the filters available in Evo. What I would like to do is have a filter that when mail comes in from a certain account (POP3), that...

    [all variants] Re: Asus UL30 anyone?

    I have the same issues with wireless (button doesn't turn off the light) on my Asus V6VA.

    Do you have any estimates of what battery life is like under Linux?

    [all variants] Re: Asus UL30 anyone?

    How are you guys finding the screen? My laptop is 3.5 years old and I'd like to upgrade, but I have been spoiled by the IPS screen. I'm pretty sure no other laptop will be able to match it.

    [ubuntu] Re: Volume not being controlled correctly

    Was a fairly easy fix, just went into sound and had to adjust the default mixer tracks device. Not quite what I had expected.
