OpenSUSE Hardware :: 11.4 - Moving Windows Results In Jittery Motion

Mar 10, 2011

Just have installed 11.4 on an EVGA X58 I7 LGA1366 platform, 6 GB of RAM, with twin EVGA/NVidia GEForce GTS 250 SLI cards. X11 is configured for the desktop spread across all 4 monitors. I added the NVidia repo, downloaded the NVidia drivers and desktop widget. I am running the default kernel. The NVidia items showing installed via YAST are the nvidia gfx02 kmp desktop graphics driver kernel module for GEForce6xx and newer GPU's, the Nvidia G02 graphics driver for the same version card and the x11-xorg-driver-video-nouveau accelerated opensource driver for NVidia cards.

Graphics performance is horrible-- moving windows results in jittery motion, starting new programs requires a lot of time, sometimes windows leave "trails" and blur when they are moved..... and whenever anything is moved I see (via GKrellm) CPU usage go way up. I am guessing this is to service the graphics. So I am not satisfied that I have the correct driver installed for the video cards. Additionally I question that the noveaux accelerated open source driver is there as well--I would assume that was part of the install package.

From the NVidia page, using their tools to insure the correct driver is selected, I downloaded NVidia I do not find this same driver designation (minus the .run) on any of the repo listed drivers in YAST. I assume that to manually compile the driver I downloaded its going to be configure-make-make-install or something similar. I do have (in prep for this) gcc, make and the kernel.src installed. Question is should I uninstall the existing drivers and NVidia packages before trying to build and install the NVidia package that I downloaded directly from their site?

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: 11.2 - Jittery Video Playback And Not Watchable?

Mar 14, 2010

I just finished trying to install the codecs for various audio/video playback (Restricted Formats/11.2 - openSUSE - Community) and now I can play flash, mp3s and such but most of the video playback is very jittery and is not watchable. I have now tried it with mplayer and kaffine but still the same. I had this problem before as well and even tried VLC but no luck. I had thought I could just add the Nvidia repository and type in my graphics card, install and be done with it but no such luck (nothing even comes up when I type geforce).

CentOS 5 :: Ext4 And Moving Items To The Trashcan In Gnome Results In Nothing Showing In The Desktop Trashcan

May 21, 2010

On my home test 5.5 VM, after converting to ext4, moving items to the trashcan in Gnome results in nothing showing in the desktop Trashcan. Looks like a bug in gnome-vfs' support (or lack of it) for ext4, or have I got some other more subtle corruption going on? It's of little importance to me as I'm rarely in the GUI, but it would be nice to see confirmation or otherwise.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Sony Motion Eye Webcam - Firmware Loading

Jul 9, 2010

Well, after searching several forums and trial and error, I finally got my builtin webcam to work. Its r5u870 05ca:1836. The only problem I now have is that after a hard boot (system was powered down), I then have to do a soft boot for this to work properly. It seems to me that the problem is the firmware loading. Obviously, doing a shutdown -r means that the firmware remains in the webcam device and then everything seems OK.

After a soft boot:
linus:~/bin # lsmod|grep -e sony -e uvc -e r5u
r5u870 26436 0
usbcam 47808 1 r5u870
sony_laptop 35688 0
uvcvideo 66124 0
rfkill 22772 2 cfg80211,sony_laptop
videodev 39168 2 usbcam,uvcvideo
v4l1_compat 16004 2 uvcvideo,videodev
linus:~/bin # lsusb|grep Ric
Bus 001 Device 004: ID 05ca:1836 Ricoh Co., Ltd Visual Communication Camera VGP-VCC4 [R5U870]
linus:~/bin # luvcview -L
luvcview version 0.2.1
Video driver: x11
A window manager is available
video /dev/video0
/dev/video0 does not support read i/o .....

After a hard boot, luvcview will not display anything after the line beginning with
{ pixel...
How to make this all work without the soft reboot?

Ubuntu :: Update - 3D - Dragging The Unity Launcher Up/down Looks Slightly Jittery Too

Jul 27, 2011

Running 11.04 64bit. AMD Radeon HD 6450 with proprietary drivers.

This is a new PC that I got a few weeks ago. Up until tonight, there have never been any issues. I earlier had an update for dbus and dbus-x11 which prompted me to reboot. After rebooting, I am noticing some mild to severe problems when gaming.

It's like there's a jitter, yet the ingame fps (frames per second) is normal. Window dragging on the desktop looks fine, but dragging the unity launcher up/down looks slightly jittery too.

Thinking it was just some sort of Unity/compiz problem, I booted into Classic desktop with no effects. Issue still persists.

Really want to fix this, as it's a pretty annoying issue =/

I realized it seems to have caused issues with scrolling too. Scrolling does not look smooth and is also jittery.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Jittery DVD Playback - Local Files Displayed The Same Effects

Jan 28, 2011

I'm having jittery DVD playback, and I don't know what the problem is. I tried switching to metacity, but that didn't help. I tried copying the whole disk to local drive with dvdbackup, but the local files displayed the same effects. I tried mplayer and vlc, but no difference. Totem, however, is really bad with jitters. With totem, I tried checking 'Disable deinterlacing of interlaced videos', which I saw someone recommend in another thread, but that didn't help either. I also have all the codecs from this forum's how-to sticky. A video capture of the jitters while playing with vlc: [URL] I'm using Ubuntu 10.10 Desktop 32-bit.

Ubuntu :: Moving Windows From One Desktop To Another?

May 13, 2010

i installed ubuntu 10.4 on my samsung n110 netbook, the regular one, not the netbookremix
so far it looks good, some little inconveniences though, my main one right now is: i used to be able to grab a window with the mouse on one desktop and move it to another desktop just by dragging it (i.e. drag it to the right side of the screen and then it would switch desktops automatically)

now that doesnt seem to work anymore, i can only move the window but then i have to switch desktops manually and move the window some more

this really sucks, i know for now i can use ctrl+alt+shift+left/rightarrow but im used to doing it with the mouse and i quite like it

so my question is, is this a common issue? is it specific to my environment, if that's the case i'd be happy to give you more info on it...

General :: Moving From Windows Server?

Nov 16, 2010

I am an experienced Windows Server user/admin (over 12 years). I have touched Linux here and there and know my way around the "GUI" portion of it; which is not to say much.

In Windows I am not just a GUI guy and have been using script and command line since the DOS days.

I want to learn Linux Server internals just as I do in Windows Server. Most of the books/guides I find are geared toward moving windows desktop user to Linux. Most linux books that I have come across are not for porting your knowledge from Windows servers to linux but instead they start to teach you linux from abc and then I lose interest because I know the basics.

what I should start so that I can pick the right distro for a server, configure it to be a solid server and deploy/manage it appropriately? I plan to use this knowledge at customer sites instead of just at home.

Ubuntu / Apple :: Glitches When Moving Windows On 10.04?

Apr 17, 2010

I've just installed 10.04 64bit on my iMac 27" i7 and before fighting with keyboard, mouse, audio. I'd like to share with you a strange behavior of the screen refresh speed, color depth and/or maybe a performance issue with the ATI. It's happening with all the resolutions. The windows borders are "cut" when moving or scaling them, the login screen seems to have a low color depth (as banding issues) and it appears slowly from top to bottom of the screen... for example, when I open the synaptic and the system ask for the password, I can see a very slow fading effect to dark screen.

I've made a full update then install the ATI proprietary drivers (from the ubuntu repositories). Basically I'd love to hear that my problem is a driver issue but it seems that 10.04 comes with the very last drivers from ATI. Does someone experience such a behavior? Does somebody know how to enhance it?

OpenSUSE :: Apt-Get Search Yields No Results

Jun 5, 2010

I've just installed OpenSUSE. I've never used it before. I typically use apt-get to install applications when using Ubuntu; so I'd like to use it with OpenSUSE. I've read some documentation saying that I need to go to YaST -> Software and search for "apt" or "synaptic." However, both of these searches yield no results. Additionally, using the Software Manager to search for these yields no results. What can I do? When I search for something in OpenSUSE and there are 0 results, I get HTML bold tags around the search criteria where it says there are no results (as in, I can actually see the code for the bold tag).

Fedora :: Arrange Windows By Moving Mouse To The Top Right Corner?

Jan 13, 2011

When I installed fedora 14 when moving mouse to the top right corner I would get all windows arranged one next to another on the desktop so I can choose between them. Now I don't have that feature any more.

Does it conflict with compiz, or is it one of compiz plugins? Which package is responsible for it and how can I get it back?

General :: Moving Windows Buttons To Left Side On KDE 4?

Jan 21, 2011

I'm using KDE 4 under Slackware 13.1, and I'd like to move the minimize, maximize, and close buttons to the left side of the windows titlebar. Is there any way to do this on KDE? I've looked under all the windows options, and the 'Buttons' section only contained a list that didn't seem to have what I was looking for.I've only been using KDE for a couple of weeks, so I apologize if the answer is obvious, or if moving the buttons to the left is simply not an option. Any help would be appreciated.

OpenSUSE Install :: Using Cd ~/ Results In / And // Entries For All Directories

May 5, 2011

Since I updated from 11.2 to 11.4 an annoying bug seems to have crept into the shell.

If I type the following and hit tab I get:

cd ~/.kde
.kde/ .kde// .kde4/ .kde4//

i.e. each directory has a / and // version for some reason. I have to enter a / and hit tab again to proceed.

If however I type the following and hit tab I get:

cd /home/tux/.kde
.kde/ .kde4/

i.e. correct as expected.

The ls command does not do this.

This seems like a bug.

GNU bash, version 4.1.10(1)-release (x86_64-suse-linux-gnu)
openSUSE 11.4 (x86_64)
VERSION = 11.4
CODENAME = Celadon

Ubuntu / Apple :: Best File System For Moving Between It / MacOS / Windows

I have an external hard drive that needs to be readable and writable between MacOSX, Ubuntu, and Windows. I also need to work with files over 4gb in size (which can't be done with Fat32, which happens to work with all 3 OS's) I tried MacOS journaled, that didnt work. Before I start reformatting and doing a bunch of guess and check, I wanted to know if the answer was known.

OpenSUSE :: Tomcat6 Status Results Into Dead State?

Feb 16, 2011

When i start tomcat6 (on a SLES 11 box) two times without a stop in between, rctomcat6 status results into dead state.

I checked the rctomcat6 start script, in this case when the tomcat6 is already running and a rctomcat6 start is done, it display a msg that "process already running", but it continues in the start function further down & executes the TOMCAT_SCRIPT(dtomcat6) script with the start argument. And after that pid in the file gets changed but the process keeps running with the old pid, and hence when we do a rctomcat6 status, it results into dead state(bcoz it doesn't find any process running with that pid).

I think it shouldn't execute the TOMCAT_SCRIPT in this case, so in case when checkpid is success(in start function), i put an exit after the echo msg " process already running", this solves the problem, but is this the correct solution ?

function start() {
echo -n "Starting Tomcat ($CATALINA_BASE)"
if [ -f "/var/lock/subsys/${NAME}" ] ; then
if [ -f "/var/run/${NAME}.pid" ]; then

Is it possible to use the "suspend" on desktop? Where is it possible to get the information to make it possible?

OpenSUSE Install :: Boot-up Results In A Read-only Root Drive?

May 20, 2011

Somehow, the wife got her laptop into this situation yesterday. The Windows partition booted normally when selected from GRUB but os 11.3 would boot to a command line login and pretty much everything besides CTRL-D was useless as the root partition was ro.

I booted a live CD and found two a couple of strange things. First, the system clock was reset to the default date/time (2007-xx-xx). I reset that. Second, after correcting the time I ran fsck on the root and home partitions. Both went through with no errors reported but the 20GB root partition took a long,long time to complete while the 80GB home partition went pretty quickly. After doing the above, the system booted normally but both partitions reported running the transaction log as well as forcing fsck where I had just done that. My question is for future reference: how does the system react to a grossly incorrect date/time, especially where all the drive data reports being much later than the reported system time? Would this be the reason for what I saw? I have no idea how the wife managed to reset the system clock, even if the

Ubuntu :: Moving Buttons To Left - Keep Moving Back

Mar 27, 2011

I like the buttons on the left. I'm running 10.04 & I know how to move them. The problem is that changing themes will move them back right. OK, if the new theme has them on the right that's OK. But going back to the other theme doesn't change them back. They don't seem to be controlled by the theme, or I'm just not doing it right.

OpenSUSE Install :: Moving Opensuse From One Hard Disk To Another?

Aug 30, 2010

Recently I was working on something on my windows partition (on the same HD as opensuse), and all the sudden windows stopped working and I got some bad sectors on my HD.

Now, my opensuse installation is on the same HD as windows, but I need to get rid of that HD soon because it's starting to get worse (and I think opensuse is randomly crashing because of it).

Is there any way to transfer my opensuse parititon/os to another hard drive?

I'm having a very faint but noticeable electric-like buzzing/grinding. It is not the hard drive but sounds very similar.

It occurs when i move scroll bars, or drag windows. It is highly replicable.

The only other time this has happens is when i install KDE which resulted in me reinstalling. Something id prefer to avoid. I haven't installed KDE this time, but this seems to have started immediately after replacing my fstab file which i accidentally deleted. That's the only thing i can think of.

Software :: Save An Image Of Windows Results In Partimage Freezing At The "NTFS Information"

I have a dual-boot windows and Suse linux 11.1 setup. I can save and restore a linux image. Trying to save an image of Windows results in Partimage freezing at the "NTFS Information" window before the "save partition to image file." I have two SystemRescue CDs of versions 1.2.2 and 1.2.3 I have two computers one with Windows 2000 and one with Windows XP I have defragmented the partitions several times over. Users are told that use with "NTFS is experimantal". Several up-beat webpage tutorials also mention this but go on to say how marvellous it works for them. Naturally, such sites do not mention problems. This is the province of the forums. I have found nothing that relates to my problem though. Hence my post appealing for any guidance on offer.
