Software :: Backup DVDs Including Multi-title And Subtitles

Jul 9, 2010

I'm looking for a semi-automated way to backup my 300+ DVDs. Most are single title movies but some are TV series with multiple episodes. I will need english subtitles also if they are available since a number of my movies are foreign imports. All are region 1. I'd like it all command-line so I can script it. Possibly also get the extra features like commentary, outtakes, etc. but not necessary.What DVD rip/encode software will handle single and multi-title DVDs with subtitles when available and run via command-line? Export to Ogg or Xvid. Speed is second to these features. Distro is unimportant as I have a new 2Tb build specifically for this.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: CD / DVD Drive Not Opening On Multi-disk Software Install

Dec 17, 2009

I'm trying to install a multi-disk (cd's) program and I've run into a snag. It's a windows program so I'm using Wine. The installer is asking for the second disk of a two disk set. However, the program won't release the drive so it won't open. I've searched a bit and discovered the command "eject" but it tells me I'm not root so I can't do that. I'm also worried about the consequences of typing a command I'm not familiar with (as root). I don't want to unmount the drive if that will disable it when I'm not confident I could remount it given my lack of expertise. I just want to eject the disk.

I tried the "straightened paper clip in the little hole on the drive" method. It didn't work. It knocks the drive out somehow and I had to cancel the installation to get it working again.

OpenSUSE Install :: Deleting SDA Partition On Multi OS Disk And Grub Booting?

Mar 17, 2011

That is my disk

fdisk -l
Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sda1 1 3724 29912998+ 83 Linux
/dev/sda2 29256 30401 9205245 7 HPFS/NTFS
/dev/sda3 3725 4271 4393777+ 5 Extended
/dev/sda4 * 4272 12104 62918572+ 83 Linux
/dev/sda5 3725 4271 4393746 82 Linux swap / Solaris

I want ot install a new opensuse 11.4 as yest another OS. Due to the fact that I already have 4 sda partitions, I have to make some changes. What I am thinking about is to copy the sda2 (windows recovery) data to some folder etc (nevermind), then delete the sda2. Then I want to create a new primary partition for the new suse 11.4 and install it. What is worying me is the grub boot menu. I was planning to edit the new one (the opensuse 11.4), with old data.

###Don't change this comment - YaST2 identifier: Original name: linux###
title Desktop -- openSUSE 11.2 -
root (hd0,3)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz- root=/dev/disk/by-id/ata-Hitachi_HTS542525K9SA00_080105BB0F00WDHE41DC-part4 resume=/dev/disk/by-id/ata-Hitachi_HTS542525K9SA00_080105$
initrd /boot/initrd- .....

Now my question is will the settings of (hda0,n), change due to the fact that I have deleted the sda2? I have a lot of unused space at the end of my disk and want to create a new "sda2" there.

Debian :: Using VNC In A Multi-user / Multi-system Network

Mar 21, 2011

Anyone successfully using VNC client on a Mac to control a Debian server?I have the vncserver setup on the Debian machine properly. But I'm having problems connecting to it from both a PowerMac running Tiger and a MacBookPro running leopard.I can connect no problem from a machine running Slack12.2, have not setup port forwarding on my router to connect remotely yet.My Debian machine is running the latest stable release of squeeze with KDE4.I originally tried this with RealVNC Enterprise for OSX but I'm not gonna buy it so I need another alternative after the 30 day trial ends as they have no free version for OSX.
The situation is that I do freelance graphic design on the PowerMac with Cinema4D and Photoshop so I spend most of my time on that machine which is located in my home studio in my attic. Aside from the MacBook and a Dell desktop(family machine)all my other machines and network hardware are in the basement. So to go from the attic to the basement everytime I need to do something on another machine is not practical, and the only other machine I need to access on a regular basis is the Debian box in the basement, this makes the most sense.

I also have a 14 year old living in the house and he's fascinated by all this and will meddle in anything he gets the chance to so all the Linux machines and network hardware need to be behind lock and key.

Fedora Hardware :: Disk Drive Fails To Play DVDs

Feb 2, 2010

I have a Fujitsu Lifebook A3130, and I have semi-recently installed Fedora 11. I am still a fairly new linux user, and would like to continue to use this great open source software, but it seems my DVD drive fails to play DVD's. The specs are here, but unfortunately they don't give much detail as to the model number of the drive in question. I insert the disk, and it pops up with the following dialogue:

You have just inserted a Video DVD. Choose what application to launch. Select how to open "disk name" and weather to perform this action in the future for other media of type "video DVD". It then suggests opening the disk in "Movie Player", and provides a check box for "Always perform this action". I hit OK, and it seems to try to open Movie Player, but then comes up with this error:

An error occurred
Could not read from resource.
Then it provides an "OK" button. When I click the button it goes back to Movie Player, and proceeds to not show any video.

I just tried to open the disk inside of Movie Player, via the "Movie" menu, then clicking "play disk 'disk name'", but once again I get an error:
Totem cannot play this type of media (DVD) because it does not have the appropriate plugins to be able to read from the disk. Please install the necessary plugins and restart Totem to be able to play this media.
And again it provides an OK button, which diverts back to the main Movie Player window.

Debian :: Build Process - Use Sudo For Make Install - Difference?

Dec 26, 2010

What are the differences if I build (./configure, make, make install) an app when log in as root vs a "regular" user other than I have to use sudo for make install? If an app is built from a non-root account, will it be available to every other user on the system?

General :: Mounting A Multi-partition Disk Image?

Nov 16, 2010

I downloaded an raw SD card image that has two partitions. It caused some file system errors when I tried to dd it directly into an SD card. I am not sure if the card is defective or the image. Is there a way to examine this image without writing it to a physical card? Like trying to mount the partitions separately or checking the tables?

Currently I'm running 3 operating systems on my machine; Windows XP, Windows 7 and Fedora 14. I've installed them in the following order: XP -> Win7 -> Fedora14, with the idea that this would work fine regarding operating system selection at boot time.

But unfortunately, I just installed Fedora, and now I'm unable to boot Windows 7/XP. When I select the "Other" option in the Grub menu, I get the following error: Code: Error 21: selected disk does not exist To provide as much info as possible, here is a boot info script log:

Ubuntu :: No Disk Access After Multi-Seat Setup

Thing is now, I can't access my external hard drive or any usb thumb drives I plug in. Normally when they would just open up after I plug them it, I get an error saying "unable to mount, Not Authorized". How I can regain access to this? I am using Linux Mint 10

Programming :: Access To Multi-Partitions Disk Image

Jan 30, 2010

I have a 2GB file which is a dd image of a block device. The block device (a USB-connected flash memory) contains multiple partitions, and therein lies the problem. I want/need to access the various partitions in the image file, but need to do this without actually using a physical flash memory device. If the image was that of a single partition, I could simply mount it on a loop device, and access the filesystem as necessary. However, I can find no kind of virtual block device upon which to write/mount the image.

I've searched the net exhaustively for anything that would seem to allow me to do what I need, but without even a sniff of success. Sadly, I have seen bits of information that suggest "you can't get there from here". Even the outstanding dd tutorial by AwesomeMachine on LQ didn't help. Anyone know of a kind of virtual block device on which a multi-partition image can be written and mounted? Or any other way I can access individual partitions (with various filesystem types on each) and then re-assemble them back to a single image?

Ubuntu :: GParted Disk Format To Use For Multi Platform Network Drive

Aug 7, 2010

I am pretty new to Ubuntu and am practicing on an old desktop as a file print and domain controller for a work from home business while I build and configure a Linux server. My question is as follows: I have a laptop running windows 7, my wife has a MacPro running Snow Leopard, the kids have desk top running Ubuntu 10.04, I have a 500GB additional disk in the spare desktop which I want to use as a netork drive that will:

1) Win 7 backup location from the Laptop
2) Store backups of large photoshop files and other graphicsy type stuff from my wifes macpro.
3) Act as a shared directory for all of us
4) Store large multimedia files, mpegs etc

What is the best disk partition format - Am I restricted to NTFS due to the requirements to store Win 7 Backup files Secondly can anyone point me in the direction of a URL for getting the Samba permissions sorted for Windows 7, The kids PC dual boots Win XP and Ubuntu 10.04 Win XP is no problem to network but in Win 7 I can see all the shares in the network map but I always get permission errors both from the Ubuntu PC and Win 7 laptop. Most of the help files and manuals deal with 98/Me/XP and not windows vista / 7 that I can find.

Debian Installation :: Debian 5.0.4 New Install Will Not Read Boot Disk Info

Mar 10, 2010

I down loaded Debian 5.0.4 and burned it to CD (several times I might add till it was right) and now the computer I'm putting it on wont acknowledge it as a boot disk and load. It does not have a problem with my windows cd, which has a crack and the start of all my problems, But not the Debian CD-1 disk. what now? The computer is an IBM thinkpad a22p. Everything works as far as I can tell. But I was going to reinstall Windows and failed in that because of a small crack on the edge of the disk that stopped the install and any hope of accessing the file on the laptop. Microsoft does not support windows xp any longer, you must buy windows 7, but the ibm will not run it due to processor speed and ram limitations. But it will run linux and I'm willing to try it just to get out of microsoft control.

Idon't know what else to do. This is the link to where I downloaded the software ( [URL] ). The others five that i downloaded were on the same page that I got this one. Are there bad files here? Is there a missing file in the disc?

Debian Configuration :: Install A Multi-core System And Configure It To Run Several VMs, One Each For A Firewall, A Caching Proxy Server, A Mail Server, A Web Server?

Jan 25, 2011

I will be relocating to a permanent residence sometime in the next year or two. I've recently begun thinking about the best way to implement a home-based network. It occurred to me that the most elegant solution might be the use of VM technology to eliminate as much hardware and wiring as possible.My thinking is this: Install a multi-core system and configure it to run several VMs, one each for a firewall, a caching proxy server, a mail server, a web server. Additionally, I would like to run 2-4 VMs as remote (RDP)workstations, using diskless workstations to boot the VMs over powerline ethernet.The latest powerline technology (available later this year) will allow multiple devices on a residential circuit operating at near gigabit speed, just like legacy wired networks.

In theory, the above would allow me to consolidate everything but the disklessworkstations on a single server and eliminate all wired (and wireless) connections except the broadband connection to the Internet and the cabling to the nearest power outlets. It appears technically possible, but I'm not sure about the various virtual connections among VMs. In theory, each VM should be able to communicate with the other as if it was on the same network via the server data bus, but what about setting up firewall zones? Any internal I/O bandwidth bottlenecks? Any other potential "gotchas", caveats, issues? (Other than the obvious requirement of having enough CPU and RAM).Any thoughts or observations welcome, especially if they are from real world experience in a VM environment. BTW--in case you're wondering why I'm posting here, it's because I run Debian on all my workstations/servers (running VirtualBox as a VM for Windows XP on one workstation).

Hardware :: ATI Multi Card Multi Display Xinerama Composite

Jun 24, 2011

I have an ATI Radeon HD 3300 on-board video chipset, and an ATI Radeon HD 4350 PCI card. What I want is to have both displays available from one mouse/keyboard. I want to play media on one and have the other as my main desktop.The problem is that with Xinerama enabled, KDE desktop effects do not work (KDE says XComposite and XDamage are not available, even though I explicitly enabled them as extensions in the xorg.conf file), and performance is quite bad. Without Xinerama enabled, performance is great, desktop effects work great, but there's a lot of trouble with full-screen video, and the KWin window manager does not apply in the second display (although I can run a second instance of KWin on :0.1).

Debian Installation :: CD1 Install Mirrored/non-mirrored Difference

May 4, 2010

I've installed Debian Squeeze twice using CD1. First time with a high-speed internet connection using a mirror, 2nd time without. With a mirror, much more is installed, and clearly a much more complete installation. What packages would I install to make a basic CD install more like a mirrored install? Is there a list on the CD somewhere?

Debian :: Debian Squeeze - How To Burn CD/DVDs

Mar 23, 2011

I have not been able to write to DVDs since the install except for once when luck seemed to play more a part than anything else. Does anyone have a fix for this?Well, after letting it sit and sit and sit, it looks like it does write the data. But, it's writing about 1/2 of a DVD for just 2 500K files.

Debian Installation :: How To Install ISO Disk

Jan 6, 2011

I'm banging my head against the wall as I can't find a way to install the contents of the CD-26 image of Debian. I've downloaded the files and then burnt it to disk and Debian can see the disk as an ISO format, but I have no idea how to extract/install the files so that I can then use aptitude to load the program I want.

I've searched Google and it talks about Debian Installer, but I haven't got that (I don't think), and the CD doesn't load automatically at start up (even though the BIOS is configured to Boot from the CD drive first).

How to I install these other packages?

Debian :: DB Success - Install NIC From Disk?

Oct 8, 2010

would have marked the last thread as solved, but couldn't find where to do it Got it up and running, dual-boot, and no problems after scandisk, and fujitsu helped out. Now I have XP and Debian lenny. Here's where the hard part comes in, for me anyways. Had to do install without NIC, install didn't find it. I have the driver disk for it, with a linux driver on it, but I can't find anything about how to use it.

The driver file has 5 files inside it. 1) Makefile 2) sr9600.c 3) sr9600.h, 2 readme's and a file containing some .png files. I can't find a substitute driver for the card, SUPERAL semiconductor sr9600, that may be already on the stuff I can get using aptitude, so what do I do with this do I get the system to use it? I NEED networking, a tutorial or some good advice,.. I've googled everything I can think of.

Debian :: Installing - CD Vs DVDs

Jan 15, 2010

At the Debian download web page, there are many choices for an installation CD. There also is a 4 DVD set. I presume the CD is to get a base system installed. I presume the 4 DVD set is the whole ball of wax.

Yet presumptions are not always a good thing. So I would appreciate an explanation about the difference between the two options or just point my nose to the appropriate link. I browsed the Debian online docs, but I did not find an explanation. I am getting older too, so perhaps I saw the explanation and clicked right on by.

Debian :: Make A Custom Install Disk?

I also need to use a non-standard file systems(jffs2,nilfs) as the hardware end of my project works on flash memory, and would like these two FSs to replace the typical magnetic disk based choices.

Debian Multimedia :: Disk Corruption On New Install

Mar 7, 2010

I installed Debian Lenny on a friend's computer which is an older Dell workstation. The install went well. I delivered the machine last week, got it set up in there house and all was fine. 2 days later they said it crashed with a black screen and lots of words they didn't understand. I get there today and rebooted. X would not start but it ran a whole bunch of automatic self tests but could not recover. I was able to log in as root and run fsck. That made the necessary repairs. I was able to reboot and log into the KDE Desktop. Hopefully they don't break it again.

I asked them what they did to it to cause it to freak out like that and they had no idea. So, as to my question, what causes something like that? I know there must be a log file somewhere on the computer that will give me some insight into the matter, but I'm not sure where to find the file.
