    Re: How to pinpoint system crash?

    Just an update, I swapped out the MB/CPU combo with a new one, and it's been stable ever since. I also swapped my pico PSU for a traditional one (the new MB needed an add'l 4 pin power connector that...

    Re: How to pinpoint system crash?

    I swapped the disk into a working system without problems. And the problem system froze while running a live usb distro as well (with the HDD disconnected)

    Re: How to pinpoint system crash?

    Well, last idea didn't work either. Just reviewing the hardware system, and I was getting this build confused with another. This was an embedded celeron/mobo combo. I did have that whole combo...

    Re: How to pinpoint system crash?

    Ok, so I swapped the hard drive onto another desktop, and everything ran smoothly for a week. On the offending machine, I ran memtest for a long time without errors. Also ran a fedora live image, and...

    Re: How to pinpoint system crash?

    Well, that might have been a red herring. Multiple crashes since, but no error messages. Some googling suggests that the corrupted low memory issue is informational only. So back to square one...

    Re: How to pinpoint system crash?

    My kernel compiling days are well behind me, and even if I got that far I don't know how much it would help. HOWEVER, I did go through the kernel logs for (maybe) the first time, and came upon the...

    Re: How to pinpoint system crash?

    Not sure what specifically you're pointing to in the wiki. Dmesg and the system logs don't show a panic. They are normal until the freeze. Is there another tool or method I should be using?

    How to pinpoint system crash?

    I built the system about 1-2 years ago. Meant to be used primarily as a mythtv backend server. Running Ubuntu 16.04.1 LTS. IIRC I installed mythbuntu and kde. Since day 1, the system has had random...
  9. [ubuntu_mate] Re: is my HDD toasted or is there anything i can do

    I went through something similar recently. My SMART status also came back OK. Running badblocks just had read error after read error. I ended up getting the data off (but I forgot and left the power...
  10. Re: Motherboard fried (?), need super cheap HTPC options...

    Ok, so I ended up going with this motherboard/CPU, a PicoPSU, and this is the memory that I had. I think this should all be compatible, but when I power on, I'm getting nothing on screen. HDD spins...
  11. Re: Motherboard fried (?), need super cheap HTPC options...

    Thanks, that chart is great. So confusing when you shop every few years. I miss the 486 days where >clock speed = faster chip, end of story. I think I'm going to get a miniITX mobo/cpu combo, and a...
  12. Motherboard fried (?), need super cheap HTPC options...

    Got this barebones PC 4 years ago to use as an HTPC. HDD went out a couple of months ago, and I FINALLY got mythtv installed and working again. About 3 days later, the computer turned off, never to...

    How to manually map bad sectors on a HD?

    I have a media server that flaked out after upgrading ubuntu. Started throwing weird errors, looks like I have bad sectors. SMART testing came back ok. I'm running badblocks now, and it's taking...

    Re: State of dictation?

    I just installed a Chrome App called voice note 2 . Looks like there are quite a few options if you're willing to use Chrome extensions. Not perfect, but certainly serviceable. I'm currently using...

    Re: State of dictation?

    I saw Simon. I'm not sure what to do with it though. Lack of documentation is a killer. Some of these I'm not sure if they're apis or just backends/libraries of some sort. Whenever I use wine I feel...

    State of dictation?

    Layed up for a while after surgery, not able to type well. Since voice recognition is now common on windows/ios/android, i was surprised to see little available for linux. i'm interested in straight...

    [all variants] Re: Best TV Tuner Card?

    Looks like the same card (from the same retailer, but more expensive?). Both say they have an ATSC tuner... Only thing is no QAM, which I'm not using anyway.

    [all variants] Best TV Tuner Card?

    Have a PVR setup that had been using an ATI Tv Wonder 600 usb tuner card. It has started throwing a ton of errors on multiple systems, so I think it's a hardware related problem. Looking for a new...

    [kubuntu] Re: Am I using hardware acceleration?

    Yeah, I know. However, it's frustrating to upgrade and have a fairly fundamental breakage. As much as I try to use them, the open source drivers are often just not as good--running into the same...
