Ubuntu Multimedia :: Hulu Not Working On AMD64 / Start Clean And Install Necessary Packages?

May 3, 2010

videos videos work great, but unfortunately, when i try to access videos on hulu.com, i receive this error message: "we're sorry but we're unable stream this video to your system. this may be due to an adobe software limitation on 64-bit linux systems."

this is strange because hulu videos were working after i installed lynx but mysteriously stopped working. i don't have the swfdec-mozilla package installed nor the mozilla-plugin-gnash nor the flashplugin-installer.

what do i need to do to start clean and install the necessary packages?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Hulu Desktop Stopped Working ?

Mar 24, 2010

I'm wondering if anyone is having a similar problem as mine when running Hulu Desktop. The application starts fine, but when I try to select anything to watch, the green progress bar continually resets over and over again as it tries to buffer a video, and playback never starts as a result. This happens for low, medium, and high quality. Hulu Desktop was working perfectly fine a few months ago. I've always been running Ubuntu 9.10 (64-bit) with the latest 64-bit Flash pluggins, and didn't have a problem before. Running Hulu Desktop from the command line doesn't reveal any error messages either.

Debian Multimedia :: I386 And Amd64 Proper Deb Packages Of UMPlayer

Apr 3, 2011

the mcr85+1 packages were built using qt 4.6.3, so will be squeeze-compatible. umplayer is a fork of the abandoned smplayer project which adds skinning, shoutcast stream, and minitube-like videos search, playback, and download capability to the program.


i did a pull and build from the svn repo, since that is newer than the 0.92 debs on the website and solves some videos issues. debianized sources included so one can build the program on any architecture that supports qt 4 4.6 and mplayer...plus it's a good idea not to trust anybody's binaries off the web, so to be really safe, rebuild the program yourself if you don't know who the heck i am. update 20 april 2011: link to svn 143 builds and sources: [url] update: 25 june 2011: new pull from svn--fixes the returning control bar problem with skins and kde 4 kwin desktop effects enabled:


squeeze users should use the mcr85 packages, the mcr110 ones need qt 4.7. sources included as usual. it looks like it would be a nice addition to the debian repo...

Debian Multimedia :: Can't Start Skype On AMD64

Aug 27, 2010

I tried to install Skype, using the Debian download from Skype, but it didn't want to play. I downloaded the Ubuntu 64-bit deb and installed it with Gdebi. I started the application from the terminal and accepted the 'User Agreement'. Skype then tried to log me on, and I got the following error and the app closed:

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrading Packages In 10.04 - Clean Install On USB Pendrive

Feb 23, 2011

I just performed a clean install of Ubuntu 10.04 on my flash drive, allocating a 6.5 GB persistence file. Of course, the first thing I did after booting from it was to run sudo apt-get update and sudo apt-get upgrade. After a lengthy install process, I was eventually notified that several packages failed to upgrade. I rebooted and tried again, still to no avail. Now, whenever I install a new package or attempt to upgrade with apt-get, I receive the following or a simmilar output:


Setting up fuse-utils (2.8.1-1.1ubuntu2.2) ...
creating fuse group...
udev active, skipping device node creation.

Debian :: Installing I386 Packages Prompts Removal Of Amd64 Packages

Apr 8, 2015

I am working on a project which targets both 32 and 64 bit architectures at the moment. My system is amd64. I added i386 architecture using this guide. However, my problem is

Code: Select allapt-get install package-name:i386

prompts the removal of currently installed packages (amd64 arch.) which is the problem.

Code: Select allReading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
The following extra packages will be installed:

[Code] ...

Some of the packages I am talking about are


Now, as of now, I want to carry out the compilation using 32 bit libraries, however, I really don't want to install 64bit version of all prerequisites each time I switch the compilation from 32 bit to 64. Is there any way to have both architectures at the same time?

Ubuntu :: 11.04 Does Not Start Properly After Clean Install

May 13, 2011

Just did a clean 11.04 install, however, Ubuntu doesn't start properly, it usually stops when it gets to the purple screen, the screen with the word Ubuntu and a few red dots underneath it to show it is loading. The system usually stops there or stops before getting to that screen. I was able to start in the 'safe mode' though.

OpenSUSE Install :: Clean Of 11.4 Goes Well But After Rebooting - X Does Not Start?

Apr 15, 2011

I have recently done clean installs of 11.4 on two computers and then done clean re-installs but still have the same problem. Each time, the install was without flaw and I could download the updates, when offered, in the install process. At the end of the install I can log into KDE and everything works. However, after shutting down, on reboot, I only get a command line login. I can either login and run startx or use su and do init 3 followed by init 5. This tells me I am getting to runlevel 5 but X isn't starting. Either of those approaches gives me the KDE login. However, after that I have to manually start the network in YAST. I also think I had had to restart CUPS but I have only got as far as installing a printer once so I can't be absolutely sure that happened. As I indicate, this is fully reproducible. Anyone give me a clue as to what is going on?

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Is Not Working After A Clean Install Of 10.10

Oct 15, 2010

Yesterday I upgraded to Ubuntu 10.10 by a clean install. My laptop is an acer aspire 5050 with a IEEE 802.11 b/g Wlan wireless card. I am using only Ubuntu in my laptop. Today I noticed that wireless is dead. The indicator is off and I can see that there is not detection of any wireless networks in the "Wireless Networks" menu. In this point I must inform you that I didn't experience any wireless problems with the two previous versions of Ubuntu (9.10 & 10.04). Below you can see the outputs (in italic format) of some commands that I peformed in terminal:

*1st command

sudo ifconfig -a:

Fedora :: Hulu Video Not Working / What To Do?

Jan 11, 2010

I'm using 64-bit F12 with the 64-bit Adobe flash plugin from leigh123linux's yum repo. For the last day or two, whenever trying to play a Hulu video in Fedora, I get the error "Sorry, we are unable to stream this video. Please check your Internet connection and try again." Previously it worked in Fedora, and it works normally in Windows on the same machine, so I'm guessing the problem is at Hulu's end. Are any other Fedora users seeing this?

Edit: Just checked a 32-bit F12 box with the Flash plugin from Adobe's yum repo and Hulu works on that. So this problem seems to be limited to 64-bit Fedora.

Slackware :: Hulu Stopped Working / Fix It?

Oct 22, 2010

I'm on Firefox 3.6.11 with Flash 10.2 d161 on Slackware 13.1 32-bit. Hulu stopped working sometime this past week. (Actually when it stopped working I was still on the previous versions of Firefox and Flash - I upgraded 3.6.10 to 3.6.11 to see if it would help.) Worked fine before that. I've tried Firefox safe-mode, disabling add-ons and using default theme and none of this matters. Flash works fine and Hulu worked fine before a week ago.

Ubuntu :: WiFi Not Working After Clean Install On Sony Vaio

Jun 22, 2011

I just did a clean install of the newest version of Ubuntu (11.4?) on my Sony Vaio CW. I was able to use the WiFi at my friends house where I installed it. At home when I entered the pass for the internet it would try connecting and five minutes later be back asking for the pass again. It won't connect at my house or my grandparent's house. They both have a protected internet but my friend does also and I was able to connect to his.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: No Sound After Clean Install Of 10.04?

May 24, 2010

I've just done a clean install of Ubuntu 10.04 after using 8.10 for a couple of years.

I use an Acer Aspire 5720 and sound *WORKED* under 8.10 fine. Now I have done a clean install of 10.04 all I get are the bongos at the login then nothing. I can't play any sound files etc. The card is recognised but something is wrong. Here are the results of some commands I have given :

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Firefox On Karmic Freezes With Hulu?

Apr 9, 2010

i've seen several posts on other forums about problems similar to this but no solutions that apply to me. i've got the latest updates for karmic that i installed this week. i'm using an ibm t60 thinkpad with 01:00.0 vga compatible controller: ati technologies inc m52 [mobility radeon x1300]. i have dual monitors and firefox 3.5.8.

when i attempt to watch a movie on hulu, it appears to work for a brief moment and then freezes and the browser window goes grey. i've left it sitting like that for over 15 minutes and eventually had to force quit it.i'm able to use the gnome desktop effects and have no problems viewing other multimedia, like videos, etc. i'm very new to ubuntu and linux in general. i'm a mac head and still love mac's but have grown very fond of ubuntu in a short amount of time.

Debian Configuration :: Can't Build Modules With 2.6.38-2-amd64 Packages

Apr 14, 2011

My new laptop works out of the box except for the video and the ethernet. For this, I have to use a later kernel than the Debian kernel (debian squeeze is currently 2.6.32). Upgrading to the new kernel (without moving to the testing dist itself) was pretty easy. I just installed linux-image-2.6.38-2-amd64 and linux-base from the testing distribution by manually downloading and using dpkg. After that, ethernet and video started working.

However, my virtualbox installation no longer works because the drivers do not match the kernel. I am used to this; whenever debian upgrades the kernel on me, I have to run "/etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup". This rebuilds the drivers. This failed for me, however, because it could not find the headers. So, I installed some more packages:


Now, when I rebuild it, I get this:

# /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup
Stopping VirtualBox kernel modules:.
Uninstalling old VirtualBox DKMS kernel modules:.

Debian :: Errors Encountered While Processing AMD64 Packages

Mar 21, 2011

I have a VPS running Debian Squeeze. Today I ssh'd in to do an apt-get update and an apt-get upgrade. Some of the packages seem to install fine, however linux-image-2.6.32-5-amd64 gives an error. I've tried rebooting (hoping that it would indeed come back up after a reboot and it did) but nothing has helped. Here's the output from apt:

I also did an apt-get clean to drop the cache but that didn't help either.

General :: Options To Pickup Where Install Left Off And Start Adding Packages - Scrap And Re Install

Apr 18, 2011

I've got an ASUS eee1005 that I'm trying to load eeebuntu -- I've read good things about it! However, I managed to get it (partially) installed using only unetbootin and the eeebuntu-nbr iso. Luckily I've got other working laptops in the house, or I'd be stuck because now I've got a partially installed distro that isn't allowing me usage of my wireless. Basically, what I'd like to do is be able to go back to the install process and load all the packages I want, which, hopefully, will give me NetworkManager so that I can finally connect. I can boot to the thumbdrive (8gig, btw) but I don't think I've got the right files on it to do the install. Here's what appears on the thumbdrive:


I would think that with these files on the thumbdrive, it could find its way into the install process. Apparently not. I've read most, if not all of the 'install from USB' threads and how-to's, and it's still not working right - Now, having a partially installed distro (with GUI that's not GNOME, or KDE. . ?) Are there any options I can use to pickup where the install left off and start adding packages? Or should I just scrap it and re-install?

Ubuntu :: Any Way To Clean Up Trash (Packages)

May 8, 2010

I downloaded and installed k3b from the software center and remember seeing that after it was installed, an additional 180MB would be taken up. so the installation process took about 2-3 minutes after unpackaging or whatever it does. But when I went to uninstall it, it took like 2 seconds. Is there a way to clean up packages that hasn't been uninstalled all the way or haven't been used? Is that normal?

Debian Configuration :: Find & Download I386 Packages On An Amd64 System?

Oct 30, 2010

I have a computer with internet access with amd64 architecture running Debian stable (Lenny). I have another computer with NO internet access with i386 architecture running Debian stable (Lenny).I want to download some packages for the i386 computer using the amd64 computer. So far, the only way I can see to do this is to use dpkg-architecture to temporarily change to i386 on the internet computer, run aptitude with the download-only option to retrieve the packages I need with all suitable dependencies, then switch the internet computer back over to amd64.

I can't imagine I'm the only person who ever needed to do this, and yet I've had no luck finding any advice. The method I described seems rather awkward - is there a more elegant solution?

I apologize to the membership, I realize now the absurdity of this subject. Having now studied the online repository search functions closer, I see it appears packages are automatically retrieved with all necessary dependencies. As such, it is not necessary to use apt and its various functions to do the job.

Fedora :: Clean Up Unused Packages?

Dec 6, 2009

I've been running fedora 12 for a few weeks now and I was wondering how to clean up all of my unused files. I have accumulated quite a bit of software in the form of updates and downloaded packages since starting and I can only assume these are going to continue to build. I have rpmorphan and it lists all of the programs I'm not using but I'm wary of it because it lists WINE as one I haven't used but I use it everyday to play a game. I'm afraid I'll erase something I need, but I'd like to keep my system as clean and slimmed down as possible.
