Ubuntu :: 9.10 - Rhythmbox Stops Playing - Track Progress Speeds Up

Feb 27, 2010

I just installed Ubuntu 9.10 yesterday. When I opened rhythmbox music player, I dragged over some mp3 files to play. It asked me if I wanted to install mp3 support. Naturally I selected yes, as I have several times before. Everything appeared to install correctly and music started playing. The first track finished fine. The second track made it roughly 20 seconds and then the sound stopped. I switched back to the desktop that rhythmbox was on (I had been browsing firefox on the other desktop) and noticed that the progress bar for the song was moving very fast and would continue doing so on every song. The progress bar would cycle through the length of a 3:40 song in about 6-8 seconds. But there was no sound.

I should also note that the reason I used rhythmbox (RB) was because I tried to install Amarok 2.2, which did install, but I couldn't get the program to work when I opened it. So I decided to settle for rhythmbox. So the first time I encountered this error on RB was the first time I used the program, and the first time I used RB was after I had installed Amarok 2.2 and couldn't get it to work. Idk if this is relevant or not, but I figured I would include it anyway.

Anyway, I have tried a number of potential solutions:

1) Changing the hardware profile for my multimedia.
2) Making sure my bios is set up properly. I have a soundcard, so I disabled onboard audio.
3) I thought maybe Pulseaudio was the problem, but didn't try to resolve it because this thread from he Ubuntu forums appears to be outdated for Karmic Koala, so I didn't take my chances using it.
4) Uninstalling Amarok, however, I couldn't locate all the dependencies to uninstall them
5) Installing "libxine1-ffmpeg" manually since another forum on ubuntuforums had recommended that. However the deb-installer failed with this output

Error: Dependency is not satisfiable: libavcodec1d (>= 0.cvs20070307)

6) Booting to the LiveCD for Kubuntu (Kx) 8.04-2, Kubuntu 9.10, and Ubuntu (Ux) 9.10. I went through the process of opening RB, loading music, installing mp3 support. For Kx 8.04-2, I got an error telling me I needed to install "libxine1-ffmpeg" manually, which I did via deb-installer. Everything worked great. For Kx 9.10 and Ux 9.10, I got the already mentioned error about the unsatisfiable dependency. So I could go back to Kx 8.04-02 (which many of my friends here at LFO know this has been my favorite distro+version for almost two years now). However, I can't be stuck with it just because of some minor issues.

I should also note that video on firefox (e.g.; is very slow and usually greys out firefox until it stops working. Yes, I have installed flash player and jre 6.0 via synaptec. :D So this is apparently an overall multimedia problem, which doesn't surprise me because it seems that both Ubuntu AND Kubuntu have been having more multimedia problems since fall of 2009 (at least based on what I have gathered from forums while searching out my current problem). Whether that is related to the 9.10 releases and later, or not, I don't know.

Another option I have is to try Mint, which I have had very good experiences with in the past. But I don't want to leave the *buntu family as I am very partial to it and really enjoy the time-saving convenience of the deb-installer.

General :: Command Line - Looking For A Fast CLI Distro?

Apr 26, 2011

I'm looking for a fast Linux distro to put on a USB key. The goal is to be able to boot in as few seconds as possible, with just enough to mount a hard drive and do some basic operations in there (bash would be enough).

I do need:
x86 and x86_64 support
EXT2/3 and NTFS mounting capabilities (read & write)

Networking support (/etc/network/ config is fine, no need for detection) Bash (another shell would also work, but I would have to modify some of my scripts I would prefer if I didn't to have to build these programs for the selected distro, but that's always an option. I do not need:

X, or any form of GUI
more languages (english is enough)
anything not mentioned

I don't care about the size on the USB key, but the bigger it is, the longer it will take to load. My research pointed me towards these distros, but I not sure which one to choose:

Tiny Core Linux
tomsrtbt (doesn't look maintained anymore)

I also found these tools I could use to build my own distro (as a last resort)

Software :: Set Progress Bar On Moving Files With Command Line?

Jan 22, 2009

When I move files with the mv command, it simply waits until the file has moved and then the command prompt appears again. This is fine, but there are two things which are rather annoyingThere is no progress bar: When moving really large files, you have no idea how long the move is going to take. Is there possible to produce a progress bar to show how much has finished? You can't do anything while you're moving: You can't use the command prompt while you're moving the file/files. I'm currently not using a Linux computer (I'm at school) but maybe it's possible to write mv <file> <location> &, I just thought of that just now. Is it maybe possible to use another program than mv to move you files?

General :: Looking For Non Compressed Small Command Line System Distro?

Oct 31, 2010

We are having a lot of trouble with this.

We need a command line version of Linux like ttylinux. Any command line will do with the latest kernel. It should be around 50 megs.

But the problem is, all these small Linux versions are LiveCD or have a compressed file system.

We need a SMALL linux distro, that we can install UNCOMPRESSED (no squashfs etc) on a hard disk.

This is so simple I'm sure I'm missing something..

Ubuntu :: Which Distro Has Least/no Use Of Command Line

Mar 11, 2011

I'm excited to try Linux/Ubuntu, but I hate command line - I've tried to use it before with disastrous results, so I'd like to try something that requires the least amount of command line use -- or none at all, if possible. I'm not looking for a Windows-clone per se, just something light that will work well on my netbook, and which is entirely GUI for everything/most things that it needs to do.

General :: Cloning Drive With DD - Progress Indicator?

Jan 20, 2010

I have a Shuttle XPC with 3 drives. /dev/sda is a 320GB SATA drive with a basic installation. Two partitions, a swap and the rest is on /. The other two drives are 1.5TB SATA configured as a software mirror as /dev/md0.

I want to use dd to clone the 320GB boot/OS drive to a 750GB SATA I have at home. Last night I put the 750 in a USB enclosure and at about 6:00 PM fired off: dd if=/dev/sda of=/dev/sdd

It's now 7:16 AM and the dd is *STILL* going. Is this unusually long to clone the drive? Is there any way to check the progress or a way to launch dd with a progress indicator?

General :: Copy File In GNU With Progress Bar And Rate Limiting?

Jun 22, 2010

Is there any good tool in GNU/Linux that copy files like cp, but also shows progress and limits speed (and changes limit without interruption) like pv?

Prototype: find source_directory | cpio -H newc -o | pv -s `du -bs source_directory/ | awk '{print $1}'` | (cd /destination/directory && cpio -di)

Also rsync -aP source_directory /destionation/directory/, but this shows progress bars individually and can't change rate after started. Or may be I should just write a wrapper for pv/cpio? Done.
