Hardware :: DVD-RW Not Reading Media?

Aug 28, 2010

I have an LG-GH22NS50 DVD RW drive. My problem is it has, all of a sudden, stopped reading any disc I pop into it. I'm running Slack 13.1, although I'm fairly certain this isn't relevant, coz the drive is not reading from discs even at boot-time. I got this drive just a couple of months back, so dust build-up inside isn't very probable. What could be the problem here?

Debian Installation :: Lenny Install Not Reading Media

May 5, 2010

I've installed Lenny a few times before, but something is going wrong here this time. I couldn't remember the exact method I used to put an image on a disc, but I tried over 10 ways, and every time, after starting up, it says something along the lines of please select different boot device or insert bootable disc and press a key. There's a bunch of options to make these images in Windows apps, but I did one solid way that should have worked i believe.

This was to zcat boot.img.gz > /dev/sdx and so on, then copy the mini.iso to the usb drive (instead of previously making cds). I thought maybe my cd drive wasnt working, but the usb drive, when selected as primary boot drive had same issue. I didnt see any errors in its creation on the usb drive either. Running AMD64, have three hard drives plugged in, thought maybe the newest drive had an issue, so I tried different combinations of unplugging power and data cords of each and once all hrd drives. Using this computer right now, actually, XP is running. A command prompt version of squeeze is installed, its having some difficulties, thats why i would like a new install.

Slackware :: Sane Not Reading Dll.conf?

Jul 9, 2010

I'm trying to setup an Epson perfection 4490 photo scanner in Slack 13.1. I've got the appropriate iscan and epkowa driver and firmware. However it is not working: sane-find-scanner produces:Code:found USB scanner (vendor=0x04b8 [EPSON], product=0x0119 [EPSON Scanner]) at libusb:001:004but scanimage -L finds nothing. After battling a lot with dll.conf and epkowa.conf I decided to run strace scanimage -L and to my shock it never tries to read dll.conf, instead it goes straight to read xerox_mfp.conf and does not try to read any other conf file in /etc/sane.dHas anyone come across problems with sane in 13.1 (or 13.0 as I tried this before upgrading with the same results)?

Slackware :: Reading Cdrom And External Drive In Dolphin?

Jun 12, 2010

I inserted a disc and tried to access it through Dolphin. It shows up in the directory explorer thing as a disc and with the disc name, but it has a little / thing in the bottom corner of the icon, and when I try to access it, it gives me this long error on the bottom of the file area (can't remember what all it said, something about 'harvey' and being unable to find the directory in /etc/fstab). The same thing happened with an external drive, which seemed to work fine before but now has the same problem.

General :: Why Is Reading A FILE Faster Than Reading A VARIABLE?

May 4, 2011

I don't understand the results of a simple performance test I ran using two basic scripts (running on a high end server):

perfVar.zsh :

#!/bin/zsh -f
MYVAR=`cat $1`
for i in {1..10}


Performance test result:

> time ./perfVar.zsh BigTextFile > /dev/null
./perfVar.zsh FE > /dev/null 6.86s user 0.32s system 100% cpu 7.177 total
> time ./perfCat.zsh BigTextFile > /dev/null
./perfCat.zsh FE > /dev/null 0.01s user 0.10s system 91% cpu 0.118 total

I would have thought that accessing a VARIABLE was way faster than reading a FILE on the file system... Why this result ?Is there a way to optimize the perfCat.zsh script by reducing the number of accesses to the file system ?

Slackware :: How To Change Xine Media Setting

Feb 4, 2010

My DVD player is on /dev/hdc but when I put 'xine /dev/hdc' on the command line I get an error saying 'There is no demuxer plugin available to handle /dev/hdc'. If I use the mount point /media/DVD instead of /dev/hdc it works fine. I am trying to get DVDs to play automatically but I can't see how to get xine to look for /media/DVD instead of /dev/hdc. I have tried changing the location on the Settings -> Media tab, and the line which says 'directory a media in dvd device will be mounted' in ~/.xine/config but neither worked.

Slackware :: C-Media USB Audio Adapter And Snd_usb_audio Module

Apr 20, 2011

I want to use my C-Media USB Audio Adapter with Slackware 13.1

When I connect the device it is shown in lsudb:

Bus 003 Device 002: ID 0d8c:c C-Media Electronics, Inc. Audio Adapter

Do i need to have the snd_usb_audio kernel module. However when is call modprobe snd_usb_audio I get: Fata: Module snd_usb_audio not found.

I though that snd_usb_audio was not build with the kernel, so I did:

Without making any modifications the .config the file already has CONFIG_SND_USB_AUDIO=m . Does this mean that the current kernel has that module? If so why I cannot load it?

Slackware :: Replace Default Installed Kernel On Media

May 19, 2010

I already know how to replace the kernel used to boot up the cd installer. /kernels directory. What I really would like to know is, is it possible to replace the kernel that gets installed by default with my own kernel build? Currently I have my kernel placed in the /kernels directory and that works fine for startup and installation. But then when I boot off the hard drive the kernel that is being used is not the one I placed in the Kernels directory.

Slackware :: VLC Media Player Installation Error - Transcoding Failed

Jul 7, 2011

This is an error I got from VLC Media Player:

Streaming / Transcoding failed:
It seems your FFMPEG (libavcodec) installation lacks the following encoder:
MPEG Audio layer 1/2/3.
If you don't know how to fix this, ask for support from your distribution. This is not an error inside VLC media player. Do not contact the VideoLAN project about this issue.

It said not to contact VideoLAN, but instead the Distro I am. Was there a file I should download in order to fix this? If there is one, where do I place it or run it to stop this error?

Slackware :: Setting Up An Old Desktop (Dell Dimension 4300/512mb RAM/20g&80g Hdd) As A Media/file Server And Using 13 For It?

Jan 1, 2010

I'm thinking of setting up an old desktop (Dell Dimension 4300/512mb RAM/20g&80g hdd) as a media/file server and using Slackware 13 for it. I'm completely new to doing anything server-wise,it of background: I'm running current versions of Zenwalk and Vector on two different laptops, with the Zenwalk one multi-booting Vista and Ubuntu. The desktop in question is running XP and Zenwalk. I have DSL hooked up to a Linksys WRT (running dd-wrt firmware) for network. I'm not a noob, just not in my comfort zone. My goal is, in addition to setting up the server, to get more hands under the hood (so to speak) on improving my linux skills. It was a toss up between Slack and CentOS, and being very familiar with Slack-based systems, I'm going that route.

Ubuntu :: Change The Mounting Point Of A Usb External Drive From '/media/disk' To '/media/Movies'

Jan 16, 2011

I was trying to change the mounting point of a usb external drive from '/media/disk' to '/media/Movies'

Here is were the stupid part takes over... I right clicked on the desktop icon for the device and selected Properties. From there I selected the Volume tab and in there I changed the mounting point to '/media/Movies' It accepted it and said the changed would take place when I unmounted it and remounted it. However, when I did this it now says it cannot be mounted as it says mount_point contains invalid characters usually /

Unfortunately, now I cannot get back into the properties to remove my error.

Software :: Media Streaming Between WMP And Media Players (preferably Amarok)?

Aug 20, 2010

I recently put Linux back on my laptop (Vector) and I am trying to get any of the media players on it to recognize and play the music on my desktop, which is running Windows 7 Ultimate with WMP streaming music over my wireless network. I was wondering if this can be done, or if these features have yet, if ever, to be implemented.

General :: Install Windows 7 On Media Partition \ Keep Media Partition Completely Separate From Any OS?

Apr 24, 2010

I just bought a new hard drive so that I could convert my XP-only machine into an XP-Ubuntu-Windows 7 triple boot machine.Since the drive is absurdly huge (1 TB) I wouldn't mind throwing ReactOS into the mixtoo.I just found out that master boot records are limited to 4 entries, meaning 4 primary partitions. I had Windows XP set up on my old drive as a boot partition, a program files partition and a media partition. Since I really didn't want to install XP from scratch, I cloned this setup on my new drive.

This leaves me one MBR partition entry for installing Windows 7, Ubuntu and ReactOS. I'd like to avoid having to install XP from scratch like the plague, partly because it's supposed to be a safety net in case things go wrong with my other OS's and because I've invested a lot of time getting it set up exactly the way I like it.Here are the options I've considered and why I don't like them:Install Windows 7 on my media partition. This would work, but I prefer to keep my media partition completely separate from any OS, so that I can reformat an OS partition without affecting my media partition at all.

Use wubi or something to install Ubuntu in the same partition as something else. Again, this is brittle.Move all my media to a logical drive on an extended partition. Create another logical drive on this extended partition for Ubuntu. The problem here is that extended partitions are rather brittle--if you nuke one, it renders the rest useless.Just put the old drive back in my computer and run XP off it. Use the new one for the other OS's. The problem here is that the old drive is slower and uses extra power, generates extra heat, etc.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: VLC Media Player Doesn't See Files As "media Files"

Jan 22, 2010

I have an NTFS volume on my system which I regularly access from within Ubuntu 9.10, mostly to play the plethora of DVD images (*.iso files) stored there. I use VLC Media Player to watch the content. For some reason, VLC's file browser only shows a small subset of the files by default. I have to select "All Files" instead of "Media Files" to see all the *.iso's.

What's this about? Since they're all the same type of file, I don't understand why some would be viewed as "media files" but others not. If the files were on a Linux-type filesystem (ext3 etc.) I would guess it had something to do with permissions, but I'm not sure how file ownership & permissions apply to a mounted NTFS volume.

OpenSUSE :: Reading Some EPS With 11.4?

I did a fresh installation of OpenSuse 11.4-x64 and everything is working smoothly except for some eps figures. In Opensuse 11.3, fedora or ubuntu these figures open without problems. In 11.4 the same figures show a message "Could not load document". I am trying to attach some example of the figures with this problem but I don't know how to do. All the EPS figures that I can't open have the same beginning.

OpenSUSE :: Reading The HFS+ On 11.4?

But after looking up how to configure the system on the macbook(sound, grahpics....etc) I dunno if I messed up something or what, now I get this error whenever I try to mount the HFS+ partitions( I am still asked for authorization though):

An error occurred while accessing 'Data', the system responded: org.freedesktop.UDisks.Error.Failed:Requested filesystem type is neither wll-known nor in /proc/filesystems nor in /etc/filesystems

Debian :: TAR - File Has Changed While Reading

Dec 17, 2010

I am using a backup system with cron + tar. Since the server is very busy, I get often the cron-email: "The file XYZ has changed while reading". This message is a bit annoying and I see it as critical point in my backup system. I believe that this file is then not in my backup. (Is that correct?) Let's imagine the hard disk dies and I have to recover the system and my personal data, and in the night the mysql-table XYZ was not in the backup, because it was in read-usage. I would then have lost this table forever. Is there any way to tell TAR, that it should force the file to be included (if in read-usage, then wait 2 seconds and try again)?
