  1. [ubuntu] Re: How do I rip a DVD that contains audio, not video?

    Ah ... vobcopy is what I used. Then you can pull the audio out as needed later.
    I haven't had a working optical drive connected to Linux for a few years.

    Re: Banshee alternative for video

    smplayer is a front-end to mpv. mpv is amazing. I've never used smplayer. No clue about tagging. That's dependent on the media file header ... I use mkv for media files, so mkvpropedit can add...

    [SOLVED] Re: umount Confussion

    Always make a script. You can make it a toggle.

    MOUNT="$(which mount || echo '/usr/bin/mount')"
    That way, if the PATH isn't reasonable, we get the specific location. Wouldn't hurt to test that...

    Just to add another option ... not suggesting this to anyone else.

    [ubuntu] Re: about snap,too hard to use

    There are non-snap distros that are based on Debian or Ubuntu.
    In 20.04, you can remove the snap subsystem and the OS works fine ... but I suspect that depends on the DE used. Typically, staying...
  6. [ubuntu] Re: How do I rip a DVD that contains audio, not video?

    Are there files on the DVD or did someone burn an audio CD to DVD media?
    If just files, copy them off.
    If the files are in the CD format, I'd guess that any CD audio ripper would work. Perhaps...
  7. Re: How to Setup Local DNS Using /etc/hosts - NOT WORKING

    Is the browser running on the same machine?

    Does /etc/nsswitch.conf have hosts before other choices?

    Which IP is being used in the /etc/hosts? I'd use or any in the 127.x.x.x/8. All...

    Systems like Ubuntu don't have a root password unless someone is violating the default setup.

  9. Re: please help insane internet connectivity after today's update

    What, exactly do you mean by those two statements? If you show the EXACT commands for each, we'd know. By IP or by name is the main question that needs clarifying.

  10. Thread: Perl certificate

    by TheFu

    Re: Perl certificate

    Are you using an MTA as Unix expects or not?

    Typically, the MTA would have a cert, so your script doesn't need it.

    Is this server in a residential network or on a business network?

    With a...

    Re: How to self-correct named pipe

    1. I'd think that the reader is holding the pipe. Use lsof to check that.
    2. I don't know. Systemd cannot fix some things. It asks a program to terminate, nicely. I suppose you could tell it to...

    [ubuntu] Re: Unable to login via ssh

    isn't the complete command. What, EXACTLY, did you enter and from which directory?

    Dependencies get broken when packages are manually installed, but not updated. This easily can lead to a 2 yr old manual package holding lots of fixed packages back on a system, leading to old bugs...

    Block all outbound 25/tcp and 465/tcp and 587/tcp from the LAN. Then check which devices are trying to access those ports one at a time and add them to a white list.

  17. [SOLVED] Re: What is correct config to use user-pass for openvpn on ubuntu 21.04?

    I don't have 21.xx ... btw, support for 21.04 ends next month, so move the 21.10 ASAP.
    However, according to the openvpn ovpn manpage, the line you want is:

    Perhaps the correct drivers/codecs aren't installed? I think the link above shows some packages to be installed. But IDK. I've never used SPDIF out from a computer directly.

    I appreciate the heads up. I autoremove almost every week, after patching. I don't patch daily, so perhaps I miss the worse packaging mistakes? Come Saturday, I'll pay attention.
