Ubuntu :: Random "freezes" Or Pauses For Like 20 Seconds, Then Back To Normal?

Feb 11, 2010

I am stumped. I get random "freezes" for like 20 seconds, then back to normal. Then again the same thing randomly. I thought it was my hard drive...replaced it, reinstalled 9.10 and same issue. Thought it might be the memory...nope!, thought it might be my motherboard, tried to update my bios and it froze and now I can't get in to my bios at all. I bought a new motherboard and did a fresh install of 9.10 and same problem!!! I took my hard drive out and put it in another computer and it ran the same ruling out hardware issues all together.

Debian Hardware :: Audio - Random Loss Of Sound

Jan 9, 2015

I'm having problems keeping audio working. Using Sparky with 3.16.0-4 kernel on a homebuilt PC. AMD A10-7850K CPU on a Gigabyte F2A88FN-WIFI mobo.

I'm using a set of Logitech Z-5 USB speakers and I repeatedly lose all audio output. To get it back I need to do 1 or all of these steps:

1) Unplug the speakers
2) Kill all processes that may be producing audio (Chrome beta, IceWeasel, Exaile, etc.)
3) Start Alsamixer and select another source in sound card list then reselect USB card #2.
4) The weird one - Remove and then re-add the volume applet that I like to have in the panel. When I lose sound th slider gets "stuck" and will not move. It will not recover.

I may need to repeat this several times but it will come back. Not immediately after any step but after a few attempts it just begins working as long as nothing is trying to produce audio at the moment. Sometimes Alsamixer says that my USB Card has no controls when I reselect it, not every time though.

Most of the time if I have more than 1 source open at any time it is likely to die again, for instance I like to stream Google Play Music. If I pause that but leave it open, then try to watch a Youtube video or other source I will either get no audio from either source, or lose the streaming audio source when I try to restart it. Going through the above routine 1 or more times usually restores it.

I have created asoundrc.conf file to tell system to use USB audio as described here -> [URL] ..... In my case USB is # 3 in the list. So this is my file:

Code: Select allpcm.!default {
type hw
card 2
ctl.!default {
type hw
card 2

CentOS 5 :: Random Kernel Panics / Correct It?

Jul 8, 2009

I'm running CentOS 5.3 x86_64 on my laptop (dell vostro 1400, core2duo, 3GB RAM, intel 3945ABG wireless, nvidia video and LAN). The problem is that some times (like 15-20% of times) I shutdown the laptop, I get a kernel panic related always to the wireless kernel module (I haven't been able to get screenshot or anything). I'm using the latest centosplus kernel. I never get these panics with the standard CentOS kernel, however the standard kernel doesn't light the wireless led, and that annoys me a lot. Therefore I'm forced to use centosplus kernel. The question is not how to solve this (i know I've not given enough details) but what to do to diagnose better the cause of the panic and then correct it.

Ubuntu :: Inexplicably Long Pauses When Moving Files?

Mar 31, 2011

I'm wondering what might be causing some VERY long delays when I move groups of files from one directory to another on the same drive. In the GUI, I simply multi(shift)select a few dozen items at once (a set of JPEGs previously downloaded from my camera) and drag them together from the source directory window (where I downloaded all the images from the memory card) into a new/empty folder/window specific to that group of images. Just routine sorting of files basically... Once I 'let go' ('dropping' the items into their destination) there's often a SURPRISINGLY long delay before I can do something else within the GUI... open another file, or rename an item, etc... This delay can take a few seconds to more than a minute (if moving a couple hundred files at once)... this 'wait' during such a routine 'housekeeping' task seems surprising to me. During these delays, I CAN open/use other programs such as System Monitor or a browser... it just seems that additional GUI/filesystem tasks must wait out the delay before proceeding. If I go ahead and try to do another filesystem task during the delay anyway, it gets buffered... the file won't open/next files don't get moved/etc... UNTIL the delay from the first operation is complete (updated item counts resulting from file moves aren't reflected in List View until the delay is finished too).

According to System Monitor (see image attachment for screen cap during one of these delays...) one CPU is pegged (the "gvfsd-metadata" process, which I guess corresponds to the file/move) and the other 3 cores are relatively idle, and there's plenty of free RAM/no swap. I'd have thought such a delay wouldn't be an issue with Ubuntu/my PC... maybe I have something set up incorrectly? Other clues: intermittently, during these delays/file operations, the GUI shuts down all open windows (folders)... as if the delays/buffered tasks caused some sort of reset. The hard drive is internal SATA formatted regular Ext4 and the Ubuntu on my PC is the 32-bit version since I figured my Dell is too old (about 4-5 years) to justify the 64-bit version. Like most folks, there are LOTS of files/folders on my drives, but I only have 3 file windows open at once most of the time, and am only displaying the item names and 'sizes'... no other columns. Nothing other than the 'move' itself is running at the time which could help explain the delay.

Ubuntu Networking :: Random Creation Of Networks / Force It To Use Correct One Without Making Another?

Aug 2, 2011

Every time my wifi auto connects it gives me a strange message:

At the same time it makes a new network entry, overlapping the one previous:

It's usually a battle with the wifi and my re enabling the correct setting over and over and over again. Is there a fix for either the mysterious lack of selection in the first message, or a way to force it to use the correct one without making another?

Software :: Mencoder Not Using Correct Audio Stream

Jul 28, 2009

I whipped up a script to convert VOBs to AVIs for storage on ym NFS backend. I'm using mencoder on CentOS5 to do the conversion.For 9 out of 10 videos, this works great. There is the occasional 1 that will not have the correct audio stream however. I've tried -alang, -slang, aid, etc. to no avail. Here is my script (also in case anyone else finds it useful), but can anyone offer any suggestions on how to get the correct audio in my avi? When I open the vob in mplayer, I get English. When I run it through mencoder, I get Spanish.

Ubuntu :: Random Stuttering Video/audio When Mouse NOT Moving?

Oct 2, 2010

Since updating to 10.10, randomly sometimes the CPU usage will just up (although it's generally only 1 of the cores), it seems that it might be the Xorg process using it.

Audio and Video will start to stutter and the screen will stop updating so things like the terminal will appear frozen unless the mouse is moved.

When moving the mouse the screen keeps updating and the cpu usage lowers (although video still skips).

After a few minutes the problem just seems to go away until it happens again later.

Software :: Ubuntu 9.10 Running - Random Flash Audio Dying

Feb 3, 2010

I've had this problem in the past, but it's more frequent for me now. Running Ubuntu Karmic (9.10), and if my browser is open long enough the audio in flash dies until I restart my browser. I'm running Chromium (non-google branded). I'm fairly certain this is happening in Firefox too.

Debian Multimedia :: Mplayer Audio Extraction From Video Files

Dec 9, 2010

I am on Squeeze. In the past I have successfully extracted audio from video files. Recently when I try it I get an unplayable file, just some brief noise nothing more. Mplayer on the other hand plays every video and audio file out there. Is there something wrong with mplayer? I installed mplayer from the repo. I haven't compile mplayer since before Lenny.

General :: Correct Entries In Sudoers Files

Sep 24, 2010

After adding what I thought were the correct entries in /etc/sudoers so I'd be able to run commands without needing to sudo them, I keep having to. My sudoers file entries look like this:

## Allow root to run any commands anywhere
root ALL=(ALL) ALL
user_me ALL=(ALL) ALL

## Allows people in group wheel to run all commands
%wheel ALL=(ALL) ALL
user_me ALL=(ALL) ALL

## Same thing without a password

I have also confirmed that I'm a member of the wheel group in /etc/group:
And yet, I still have to sudo to do pretty much anything.

Ubuntu :: Moving Downloaded Files To Correct Folder?

Sep 1, 2011

I'm looking for a script or a bittorrent client which is able to move a file after downloading and placing it in a specific folder depending on the file type. E.g. moving a newly downloaded movie to "Videos" and an ISO-file to "Files".

I feel as if i have used a client with this functionality before but can't remember the name.

Since I at the moment use Transmission as my bittorrent client a script would also work since Transmission can run it after finishing the download.

Slackware :: Make K3b Write Files With Correct Mask

Jan 14, 2010

I've blown a couple of DVDs trying to burn them with correct file masks (directories and files are read-only). There doesn't seem to be any documentation for K3b (building the index doesn't do squat and the help says "The file or folder help:/k3b/index.html does not exist"). I can't seem to figure out a setting that simply copies everything the "way it is."

General :: Manually Sort Random Text Files?

Jun 6, 2010

I have about 1000 text files and I need to view each, and move it to a folder if it's the correct one. I can only do basic sorting by length/size, and I can't grep because the text is random. How can I do this besides manually openiing + saving each in gedit.I'm on Ubuntu Linux.I've already done all the sorting I can based on ize,wordcount,greps,date,etc. This is what's left over. I'm trying to find an easy way to view +save/ignore the rest.

Ubuntu :: Copy / Move Random Files From One Directory To Another

May 7, 2011

We have two folders: source folder and destination folder. In source folder we have many sub folders and many files of different type!Script that would copy or move defined number of files from source to destination folder. Files must be selected randomly and sub folder in source folders must be selected randomly and we don't copy or move defined number of files just form one sub folder in source folder. In destination folder sub directory structure of source folder should not be preserved. Solution should be robust and as simple as possible.

Software :: Setting Up A Church Server - What Software Is Best For Recording The Audio Or Audio-video Files

Jun 12, 2010

Setting up a linux based church server to be placed with a collocation host.

-- Server will be used for:
--- providing .pdf files
--- live streaming of church services (audio for now audio video soon)
--- providing audio files
--- providing audio-video files
--- our internet web site

A. Is there a preferred Linux distribution that will make this easier?

B. What is the best format for audio and video files that will be viewed variously on Linux, Mac, and Microsoft operating systems? Files will need to be played on older versions of operating systems and may need a free or very low cost software to play (e.g. play on Win2k)

C. What software is best for recording the audio or audio-video files? Some additional funding might be justified for this software, particularly if it can also support live streaming.

D. What software is best for live streaming both on the file creation and the listening-viewing sides of the process?

Ideally we would like to have a single software suite to live stream, and make downloadable audio or audio-video files for later download, and not require those listening and viewing to have to install additional software. Keeping file sizes small is also desirable because some of our users will probably only have dial-up internet.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Change MP4 Video Files In A Directory To MP3 Audio Files?

What would be a nice, simple command to go through all files in a directory (no sub-directories), and change all the MP4 Video files I have to MP3 audio files (keeping the original filenames except for changing the "mp4" extension to "mp3")?

The files in question were videos taken with one of those Flip cameras, but I only need the audio off of it.
