    [ubuntu] Re: How to convert .mkv to .mp4 with sound?

    Perhaps if you posted the attempted commands, someone would see something wrong?

    Also, the output from mkvinfo would help. MKVs can hold many more types of video and audio than mp4 allows.

    [ubuntu] Re: Western Digital external hard disk_ 2

    That mount isn't the correct command. It is missing the directory where you want it mounted. The mount manpage explains.

    Do you have backups for that data? If not, make some to a new disk. ...
  3. [xubuntu] Re: How to Monitor Internet packet entering my cable modem

    All VoIP equipment makes claim that putting the ATA between the modem and router is required. This isn't true. Most cheap ATAs can't handle all the packets that a GigE network will throw at it,...

    Re: rfkill not working in Ubuntu 16.04 LTS

    Excellent point. We assume that an update/upgrade cycle is run at least every week.

    Instead of using sfdisk, parted will create "machine readable" output too, which can be imported later. Looks like there is nothing wrong sfdisk now (it didn't handle GPT disks correctly for a...

    [kubuntu] Re: Is there software to backup the system?

    [ubuntu] Re: Recovering lost ext4 partition

    What does the SMART data show? Until that data is seen, it isn't possible to know if the disk issue is trivial or that disk is about to totally fail.

    [ubuntu] Re: Recovering lost ext4 partition

    Why did the corruption happen? Does SMART show anything - perhaps failed sectors? Getting data off failed sectors is very hard. There is an ubuntu data recovery wiki google finds it.

  10. [ubuntu] Re: Can't install ubuntu in one of my hard disks

    Linux won't install to used space or onto NTFS. You need to free at least 10-25G of storage on the disk and shrink partitions to leave that space empty before attempting to install.

    There are all...
