    [ubuntu] Re: Missing keystrokes on shift?

    If it's happening with just one shift key, then something is wrong with your keyboard physically. It does it under any OS?

    [ubuntu] Re: Compiling C

    Traditionally, executables in Linux/Unix do not have an extension.

    Though you do need to make it executable before you can run it.

    The output would be a single executable file.

    [ubuntu] Re: Missing keystrokes on shift?

    This behavior is by design.

    Almost all keyboards have this "problem". To save on costs, the manufacturer uses as few switches as possible, which means that some very unlikely key combinations...

    [ubuntu] Re: Setting up a swap file

    There's no way to add video swap, only general use swap.

    There's a livecd somewhere that has fatx support. It's what I used to backup my Xbox's HDD when I upgraded it.

    I found it was easier to make a xboxpad-USB cable and use my computer to upload the...

    Re: Final fantasy viii cursor always moves up

    I've installed the demo, but I can't reproduce your problem. I've tried all of the options at various values, but nothing seems to cause your trouble.

    What settings are you using using FF8Config?

    Go to the wine config and see if changing "allow the window manager to control the windows" fixes things. Also, turn "allow the window manager to decorate the windows" off if it's on.

    Are you playing with a gamepad?

    Can you control the pointer with the mouse? Not are you trying to, do you have the option?

    [ubuntu] Re: AGP Video card recommendation

    Pretty much any nVidia card. If you don't care so much about 3D game performance then a GeForce4MX440 would be perfect. It's got more than enough power for simple stuff, and they were like $100 max...

    [ubuntu] Re: turning a video_ts into a playable dvd

    Just to make clear, you put the folder, not its contents. The root should look like


    video_ts
    |- bunch of vobs and some other stuff
    audio_ts
    |- probably empty

    [ubuntu] Re: turning a video_ts into a playable dvd

    This one's easy, you just burn it as a data DVD.

    Make an empty audio_ts folder, and put that on the DVD alongside the video_ts folder. The _ts stands for "tile set". The audio_ts folder has to...

    [ubuntu] Re: Grub loading stage 1.5

    Grub is probably in the mbr.

    You can fix that by either using a windows setup disk's recovery console to do a "fixmbr" or "fdisk /mbr".

    You can also fix it by using a Ubuntu livecd and using...
