Networking :: Reading DVD (movie) Over NFS

Mar 1, 2010

I want to share my DVD drive on my desktop with my Eee PC using NFS. I have set up NFS without any problems but I can't watch any DVD's.I have mounted /media/cdrom and I can see the files on the desktop DVD drive.When attempting to play the DVD over NFS using VLC I receive a loud screeching noise but it does play for different durations of time which I'm guessing are the DVD's chapters)

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Totem Segmentation Fault Reading A DVD Movie?

Jan 30, 2010

I upgraded my system from 8.04 all the way to 9.10.Right now I'm trying to play a DVD (Pink Floyd Pulse) and Totem Player just crashes on me. I followed the medibuntu rep installation process found here:Code: reps were updated, packages downloaded and installed, but Totem still crashes. I took a look at /var/log/messages and when I ask Totem to read the DVD, it outputs this line:Code:Jan 30 12:46:17 localhost kernel: [ 5576.977430] totem[3556segfault at 1880 ip 00007f6cfa8fb081 sp 00007f6ce48b1ac0 error 4[7f6cfa8f2000+17000]I don't understand why libpthread would cause any problem here

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 ?

2) I dont want this packet but how can I be sure that this is a duplicate packet and discard it?

3) Why I am getting this packet?

Fedora Networking :: Setting Up A Vlan Network And After Reading Several Man Pages?

Sep 8, 2010

I'm currently setting up a vlan network and after reading several man pages I still have 2 questions / problems:

1. I would want to put several subnets into one vlan.Meaning for example, I want to have the following Vlans with subnets:


Is that possible?

EDIT: I found a sample configuration, sadly without any comments, where there are defined some interfaces named vlan1:0 trough vlan1:3. Could that be the option I've been looking for.However in the definition of the vlan1 device it is configured with the subnetmask . I would like to know the mechanics of that option, too.

2. In the wlan part of the network I want to have a dhcp server distributing ip addresses. However I want hosts the server 'knows' (by mac address) to be in a different vlan than those unknown. Is there any way to achieve that? If yes, do I need special wlan access points or can I do it by my configurable switch or by the server?

Networking :: Delay In Reading The Huge Proc Net Tcp6 File?

Dec 7, 2010

I am trying to read the /proc/net/tcp6 file of a huge server (chat server) for monitoring the tcp6 connection states.

This tcp6 file has more than 26000 lines. For monitoring the server connections, my monitoring tool has to read the /proc/net/tcp6 file quickly in regular interval. Presently it takes minimum 6-7 seconds for reading the whole file.

My tool can able to read the normal file (26,000 lines) less than 1 second, but it is not possible to read the same size of proc file.

I have 2 questions:

1) Why proc file takes more read time than normal file?

2) Is there any way to read the /proc/net/tcp6 file more quickly?

Ubuntu Networking :: Samba Crashing When Reading / Writing Many Small Files?

Mar 18, 2010

Samba seems to crash and come back after some seconds if I copy a lot of small files in a short period of time over the network. How do I fix it?

I have Ubuntu 9.10 Server 64bit running on a D945GCLF2 board sharing two 1TB ext4 formatted HDDs to my Windows PCs using samba. I've been having an issue with reading or writing files through samba. It happens during copying operations or checksumming, anything that reads or writes MANY small files in a small amount of time. I am pretty sure the problem has to do with my server because the server has run on two different LANs in different homes and will crash from activity with any of several other PCs. There is no crashing if I access the files through SSH, although when I do that the max transfer speed is less than 1MB/s.

When I induce the crashing, there is absolutely no output to the server terminal.

As an easy access example of something that will crash samba, extracting Cinebench R11.5 to the server will do the job. It always fails.

Fedora :: FC-11 Networking - Browser Takes About 20seconds Before Loads Page - Not Reading Or Resolving DNS Correctly

Aug 9, 2009

After installing FC11 on my Mac Mini intel terminals, I noticed the network config GUI is completely broke, So I continued with a hand configuration.

Everything seems ok eth0 is up , it has the correct IP, DNS and default gateway, but browser quieries take forever to load.

E.g. if I type Google in the browser it takes about 20seconds before it loads the page.

To add insult to injury, I have a 16Mbit/s Down 2.5Mbit/s uplink. the other 10 or so rackservers on the network responds fast, so it is nothing to do with the network or connection. They all run FC7-9.

The problem is squarely with FC11 and must be some bug not reading or resolving DNS correctly.
Anyone have an idea how I can figure this out with FC-11.

It seems to be the worst FC distro.

I generally was happy with all FC6-9, but 11 really sucks (the ppc version wont even install on my ppc terminals)

That the Mighty Mouse Wireless, worlks out of the box is very nice though, but that is all.

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.

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

Fedora :: Get The Movie's Name Which Mplayer Is Currently Playing?

Nov 19, 2009

I have a computer playing movie automatically in loop,and I want to know which movie is now playing in this computer and report it to a server. I use bash script to do this. If I use "pe -ef|grep mplayer ........" ,it seems to complex. Is there any easier way to get the name and store it in a parameter like $movie_name ? And also, I want to know if I can know whether the mplayer is running well. For example, if I use "mplayer wrong.txt". You can still get "ps -ef|grep mplayer....",but you just know that mplayer will get error to play .txt file.

Fedora :: Merge Three Movie Iso Files Into One?

Nov 20, 2010

I have a movie split into 3 iso image files, say, movie-1.iso,movie-2.iso, and movie-3.iso I did the following:

[ewn]# cd /mnt
[mnt]# mkdir disk1 disk2 disk3
[mnt]# mount -t iso9660 -o ro,loop=/dev/loop0 /media/Hitachi_SATA_2TB/iso_files/Movies/movie-1.iso /mnt/disk1
[mnt]# mount -t iso9660 -o ro,loop=/dev/loop1 /media/Hitachi_SATA_2TB/iso_files/Movies/movie-2.iso /mnt/disk2


the files for disk2, disk3 are exactly the same except disk2 has 2 .vob files instead of 3. Can I make this work by changing the names of some of these files before merging them into one directory and then running the mkisofs command to create a new single iso image? If so, what names do I give so that the movie plays correctly? If not, just how do you do this?

Fedora :: F14 - Movie Player Does Not Work

May 14, 2011

I'm trying to watch a DVD video using Movie Player, but nothing happens. It asked for a MPEG-2 decoder but then said Gstream already had the decoder. But to be sure I hunted down some rpm files with a free MPEG-2 decoder and installed them. Nothing happened. Before that, Movie Player asked for an Advanced Stream Format Demuxer. Then it told me it was already installed. I tried to uninstall Gstream. Maybe it was installed badly for reasons unknown, but the uninstaller warned that it would take 50 files with it.

I got the impression it was daring me to uninstall Gstream, so I chickened out. But I am upset now. This problem has wasted half of my Saturday day off and it is still not solved. I forgot to say I had also installed libdvdcss, in desperation. Nothing happened. This computer does display DVD videos with Movie Player using a different distro. I'm not surprised Fedora has problems. But you figure by 2011, watching a DVD video should be no problem by now in any distribution.

General :: Extracting All The Still Images From A Movie?

Jun 25, 2011

I have a large number of paper sheets to scan. Instead of an autofeed or flatbed scanner, I'd like to use my photo camera. After a while, it occurred to me that instead of making a photo for each page, I could install the camera on a tripod, set it to record video and then extract the images from the video.

That way, I'd just have to handle the papers: Pick one, place it in front of the camera, wait a moment, replace it. Is there a Linux software to get all images without motion out of a movie? Kind of a non-motion-detection.

Ubuntu :: Where Is 'Movie Player' In Synaptic?

Mar 22, 2010

Anyone know what it's listed under?9.10 Karmic Koala..I'm customising all my preferred aps and use the amazing VLC for videos, I don't want 'Movie Player' there, but I can't find it in Synaptic to delete it and want it gone, not just the shortcut deleted.

Whilst discussing preferred aps, I can also highly recommend ditching Firefox and Evolution for Opera; more features, faster browsing, handles plugin videos better (no greying out), has a built in mail client so everything's in one place, etc. Tried just about every other browser, always go back to Opera.
