General :: Permanently Changing Permission Of FireWire Device?

Jan 22, 2011

I just setup a FireWire audio interface. Everything works fine, except for I need rw-rw-rw- permissions on /dev/fw0. I can always sudo chmod 666 /dev/fw0 just before setting the thing up, but then it will be gone on the next rebooting.The solution to modify /etc/udev/rules.d/020-permissions.rules (which is for Ubuntu Breezy) doesn't go well for Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick because there is no /etc/udev/rules.d directory.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: 4-pin Firewire With Audio Interface - Don't Provide Any Power

Dec 12, 2010

I had originally planned on buying a USB 2.0 audio interface to use with my first home recording studio, but it sounds like Linux support is pretty horrible for these devices. On the other hand, the FFADO project seems to be very promising, so now I'm looking at getting a firewire interface. The only problem is that all I have on my laptop (sony vaio VGN-N365E) is a little 4-pin firewire port. If I'm not mistaken, those don't provide any power. Will this work with any interfaces (maybe one that has it's own external power adapter)? Or is there an adapter I can get to convert it to a full firewire port and add power?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Can't Open Firewire Capture Device

Jan 22, 2011

I'm trying to view the output of a dv firewire capture device (advc-100) fullscreen through vlc. I've read of people being able to do this but a detailed explanation of how eludes me.

I'm running Ubuntu 10.10 and VLC 1.1.4

The error message I'm given after trying to open through 'media>open capture device>play' is;


Your input can't be opened: VLC is unable to open the MRL 'v4l2:///dev/ffc1/'. Check the log for details.

(and I can't find the log)

I'm not even sure if I've got the device name right so I ran lspci from the command line which gave the following output (and I still can't work out what it is);


[ 0.008410] ... event mask: 000000000003ffff

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Input But No Output On Firewire Device?

Jun 11, 2011

I'm using FFADO on JACK in order to use my firewire device (M-Audio Profire 610) and I seem to have the opposite issue as others who have similar problems. Everything starts up fine, and I can record audio into Ardour using my inputs, but I can't get any output from any of my 8 line outs.

I've checked the connections using QjackCtl, and I tried to route audio from another program (Audacious) but I can't seem to pull audio out of the device (or the computer won't send my device audio?).

Ubuntu :: How To Detect When EthX Interface Is Down From A Bash Script

Jun 11, 2011

I'm trying to write a small script and there's one part of it that makes me sick:


ifconfig eth$num down
sleep 6
ifconfig eth$num hw ether $mac
ifconfig eth$num up

The problem is that the ethX interface doesn't go down immediately after the first line is executed. So sometimes the change of MAC is called while ethX is up, no matter how big is the sleep time, which results in an error. Is there a way to make this work right?

Fedora Installation :: Will F14 Detect The VT8251 Connected SATA Drives?

Dec 10, 2010

There is a FC4 Server with A8V-MX mobo currently running 2x WD500 SATA drives in RAID1 with a third WD500 SATA drive for data backup. This machine has been running 24/7 since January 2007.The plan is to replace the WD500s with WD 2TB SATA II drives in a similar setup as above. i.e. 2 drives in RAID1 and the third drive for data backup.Definitely looking to do a clean Fedora 14 install on the 2TB but have some questions.

1. Will Fedora 14 detect the VT8251 connected SATA drives?
2. If not, how do I get drivers so it will? (I have the mobo CD with makedisk, but prob for windows)

I already have the 14 x86-64 DVD ready to go, but I am not yet at the site.the BIOS settings are: SATA, RAID or AHCI.

Ubuntu :: Wireless Card Won't Stay Connected - Iwconfig Says Wlan0 Is Interface

Jun 11, 2010

having trouble with my asus 1000 rt2860 wireless n card and WPA/PSK/WPA2 connections. Funky thing is it worked in the 2.26.32-21 kernel (iwconfig shows ra0 as the wireless interface), but when the kernel was updated and pushed through in the ubuntu updates to 2.26.32-22 the wireless card won't stay connected and iwconfig says wlan0 is the interface. I checked the proprietary drivers and they said that the driver for my card was active, but not in use. How do I use the ra0 instead of wlan0?

how do i use the driver that's listed as not being used? I'm having to boot up lucid with the older kernel now, it's annoying, lots of programs aren't running as expected as a result. I've tried manually installing the driver from the RaLink website as detailed in many other posts concerning this wireless card. It seems to work for some people, but not with me.

General :: Ifconfig Return "unknown Interface: No Such Device"

May 9, 2010

I'm trying to install a Linux driver for my wireless network card (D-Link DWL-G510) on my Red Hat Linux 7.1 machine with a kernel. I downloaded the serial monkey driver from the sourceforge site and was able to successfully compile the rt73 module and load it into the kernel. The problem now is that everytime I issue the command ifconfig wlan0 up it keeps returning with the following error message: wlan0: unknown interface: No such device.

I'm at a loss as to what to do here. I specifed wlan0 as the alias for the rt73 module in the modules.conf and also tried to load the driver with the command modprobe rt73 ifname=wlan0 (this specifies the interface name according to the instructions packaged in the driver), but the error message still keeps coming up.

Is there something else I need to do in Linux to configure the wlan0 part or is the module not recognizing the wireless network card? It would be quite strange if it is the later since all information from the Internet is indicating this is the linux driver I should be using for mentioned wireless card.

Ubuntu :: Unable To Detect WMID Device

Apr 22, 2011

So I bought an eMachine e250 from a friend of mine, and installed Backtrack on it. That worked fine, until I realised that I didn't like KDE, and decided to get the gnome-based Gnacktrack (based on Ubuntu 10.10, so I'm fairly sure they work the same). I also have a harddrive from an old laptop that I've scrapped with Ubuntu 10.4 that I run in the laptop, and fpr some bizzare reason, neither operating system is able to detect the wireless card. It worked fine with Backtrack (based on Noppix I believe), and I'm curious as to why the wireless card hates Ubuntu so much. I know that it's unable to detect the wireless card because on start-up it says "Unable to detect WMID device". I even added the wireless card from my scrapped laptop to the laptop, and that NIC was detected just fine. (though I can't use it because the antenna won't reach the slot for the secondary NIC)

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Check If Display Device Is Connected?

Feb 10, 2010

I am trying to write a script to turn my HTPC off automatically and turn it back on again at a specified interval.

I've got the turn on off bit sorted using /sys/class/rtc/rtc0/wakealarm but I want the script to not turn the machine off if say something is downloading, I am currently watching something etc and i dont think I will have any trouble with that.

But what I would really like to be able to do is tell if my TV is currently on. I dont think anything x11 related would work here and this may not even be possible. Does Ubuntu "know" if it's display device is powered on or not? if so can I interrogate this somehow?

Ubuntu :: ERROR While Getting Interface Flags - No Such Device
