    Ubuntu 10.04 LTS
    In Gnome Startup Applications, I'm launching a couple of virtual box machines.
    In the last couple of days, it stops launching them, but the rest of the applications in startup...

    [edubuntu] Re: Error: Failed to connect to NBD server

    I had this problem, and I'm purposely running xinetd for vncserver previously. Xinetd reads the inetd.conf and tries to run these services as well for compatibility reasons. Looking at the logs,...

    [ubuntu] Re: Totem crashes playing x264 .mkv files

    Updating from the ppa doesn't help here. Nor does the latest version of gst-ffmpeg. What puzzles me is totem just quitting, perhaps it is actually a totem problem? I've had issues with gstreamer...

    [ubuntu] Re: NVIDIA screen res only 640x480

    check through your /var/log/Xorg.0.log to see that a) it's using the NVIDIA driver, and b) for any errors.
  5. [SOLVED] Re: 8.04 to 10.04 - pulseaudio broken

    Ok, I fixed this so I'll post the answer in case someone else ever needs this fixed. The /etc/pulse/default.pa that I was using in 8.04 was changed because I needed to add an entry to make...

    [ubuntu] Re: 9.10 ALC 883/887 no sound

    Maybe I missed this but are you sure nothing is muted, etc? In newer Ubuntu there's no control over the actual alsa device at all it looks like. alsamixer might be available from a terminal, but...
  7. [ubuntu] Re: Unable to get Ubuntu 10 fullscreen using VirtualBox

    you shouldn't need xorg.conf to fix this.

    edit: scratch that, open-vm-tools seems to be for VMWare

    I installed virtualbox-ose-guest-x11, that...

    [ubuntu] Re: 9.10 ALC 883/887 no sound

    Go to the output devices tab and change the default output device to the internal audio by right-clicking on the name and checking "default". I'm almost positive from the looks of that screenshot...
  9. [ubuntu] Re: Nvidia GeForce 6200 incompatible with 10.04?

    there is some annoying behavior trying to get the right version of the kernel module needed for older drivers.

    try to install nvidia-173-modaliases if that's not installed, that might do it

    to...

    [ubuntu] Re: 9.10 ALC 883/887 no sound

    I doubt it's an issue with the modules, though I could be wrong. I'm guessing it's probably an issue with the wrong card/output being used or the volume being muted. Install pavucontrol, and open...

  12. [SOLVED] 8.04 to 10.04 - pulseaudio still boned.

    PulseAudio STILL won't save what I have selected as the default output device. It still won't see the HDMI audio device unless I add this to default.pa:



    I had this bug, hopefully it's dealt...
  13. [ubuntu] Re: No sound over HDMI (Nvidia videocard + integrated audio)

    That Nvidia card will never show up as an HDMI audio device because it doesn't have one. The Nvidia card just piggybacks the SPDIF output onto the HDMI cable - I take it you have a cable that...
  14. [ubuntu] Re: software raid 1, system very unresponsive during large writes.

    This seems to have helped a fair bit.. Anyone care to explain why?

    I will keep an eye out for drive failing though, if I move some stuff around I could try removing one drive and adding another.
  15. [ubuntu] Re: software raid 1, system very unresponsive during large writes.

    I'm running smartd with daily self-tests, but I have had my share of issues with sata cables, i'll check that. Most of the time I've seen issues in /var/log/messages when things were going wonky...
  16. [ubuntu] software raid 1, system very unresponsive during large writes.

    I rebuilt my 8.04 file server from scratch to try out mdraid. Two 500 disks in raid 1. The first 4gb of each disk is partitioned as swap, the second partition takes up the remainder of the drive....

    If you run the cvs checkout command from the directory above where you downloaded it to begin with, it will update the source files, that's the handy thing about using a developer's tool. On my...

  21. [kubuntu] Re: BUG??? num lock, shift, ctrl key does not work!

    I'm using WS 6.03 with Hardy AMD64, have the same problem. Bugs have been filed and enough noise is being made. Other distributions are seeing this problem, and it happens across several versions...
  22. [gnome] Re: Totem-gstreamer: build gst-ffmpeg plugin from CVS

    Messing around with the gst-ffmpeg plugin could possibly break any gstreamer apps, like totem and rhythmbox, but won't break vlc or mplayer as their decoders are internal. As for the audio drifting...
  23. [gnome] Re: Totem-gstreamer: build gst-ffmpeg plugin from CVS

    You would just need to unpack the .10.4, configure, then make, make install. I would definately still remove the current gstreamer-ffmpeg package, though. Ubuntu/Debian lib dirs are different than...

    gst-ffmpeg plugin 0.10.4 is now out:
