Ubuntu Multimedia :: A Recent Update Has Caused IEC958 Output To Stop Working?

Feb 1, 2011

I've recently noticed that my IEC958 digital audio output has stopped working. The short version of why I didn't notice this immediately is that I have two simultaneous audio outputs from my system to my speakers and I hadn't realized the IEC958 output wasn't in use.After messing around with a few settings to no avail, I remembered that I'd recently run update manager (this had to be within the last two weeks) and thought this might be the cause.I have just booted to a 10.10 install disc and verified the IEC958 output works fine there.

Unfortunately I'm not sure which of the recent updates could have caused this problem. Before I submit a bug report on launchpad I was hoping anyone here might have a suggestion as to where to look to figure this out.I'd recently seen this thread and this thread which lead me to believe it may have been a recent kernel update.What's my best course of action to determine the problematic update?[edit]In case anyone needs the info, I'm running Ubuntu 10.10 64 bit on a system with an Intel DH57JG motherboard. Using the HDMI output to a TV, with a separate optical audio cable to my speakers.Also, I've attempted using all of the available digital audio output options in the sound preferences panel and I've also installed gnome-alsamixer and tried enabling/disabling every digital output listed there as well. None of these got the optical output working again.

Fedora :: "Automatic" Update Caused Desktop Effects To Stop And Slow Downs / Sort It?

Aug 8, 2011

Seems like the latest Kernel (2.6.40-4.fc15.i686) update screwed with my setup a little bit.

This is what happened:

I had about 100 updates to my F15 pending in my taskbar's update notifier.
I let the system update itself.
Reboot and desktop effects don't work.
Takes a long time to open up Dolphin.
electricsheep (OpenGL screen saver) doesn't work.

I'm assuming it's a problem with OpenGL or my nvidia video drivers which I tried reinstalling from mjmwired's guide.

That didn't fix anything.

I'm looking for a point in the right direction or a way to revert back to my previous state before the system updated everything.

Ubuntu :: Error Caused By Update Manager

Sep 9, 2010

As usual, I let the update manager run.. But now something bad happened and a red button is showing in the system tray, which when I hover my mouse over it, tells me to open package manager or try "sudo apt-get" in terminal to see what is wrong..

If I enter sudo apt-get upgrade, I get the following errors.. How can I fix it.. I am unable to open package manager itself..

E: Problem parsing dependency Depends
E: Error occurred while processing gconf2 (NewVersion1)
E: Problem with MergeList /var/lib/dpkg/status
E: The package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened.

Ubuntu Networking :: Samba No Longer Working - Caused By Update?

Mar 3, 2010

I think an update or something has killed Samba on my Karmic box. it can see Windows shares OK, but it no longer appears on the Windows network.I have not changed my smb.conf for months, so something else has been modified.Looking in the logs I can see the following in "log.winbindd-idmap" after restarting Samba


[2010/03/03 10:07:20, 0] winbindd/idmap.c:201(smb_register_idmap_alloc)
idmap_alloc module tdb already registered!
[2010/03/03 10:07:20, 0] winbindd/idmap.c:149(smb_register_idmap)


All other networking seems fine (internet, Synergy+ etc) it's just sharing out to the Windows network that is broken.

Ubuntu :: Update Caused Icons And Appearance To Change Drastically

Aug 4, 2011

I just updated a bunch of things on my system (10.10 x86_64) via synaptic and when I rebooted to finish the update everything looks horrible. All the Icons are different, taskbar is all gray, compiz is acting funny, and the top bar has different icons and coloring. I'm wondering what happened and how I can fix this... I'm guessing it might be the nvidia update, but I'm not sure, here is what I did for the update/install:

Upgraded the following packages:

libsmbclient (2:3.5.4~dfsg-1ubuntu8.4) to 2:3.5.4~dfsg-1ubuntu8.5
libwbclient0 (2:3.5.4~dfsg-1ubuntu8.4) to 2:3.5.4~dfsg-1ubuntu8.5
linux-headers-2.6.35-30 (2.6.35-30.54) to 2.6.35-30.56


The only other thing I changed was to turn off the auto-login so I wouldn't have that damn keyring password dialog pop up during login.

Should I try downgrading the NVIDIA package update or look through any particular logs to see what happened?

Ubuntu / Apple :: Sound Stopped Working, IEC958 Light Turns On Instead Of Sound Playing?

Jan 30, 2011

The sound stopped working on my Macbook Pro 1,1. It was working fine before, and I can't think of any changes I made that would make it stop working. I know it's not a hardware problem because the Apple sound plays when I turn on the computer. Everything is unmuted in ALSA Mixer. None of the hardware options in Sound Preferences produce sound. Plugging in headphones or speakers does not solve the problem. I'm using 10.10.One curiosity: Whenever I do something that would normally cause sound to play, the optical audio red light in the headphone jack turns on, but no sound plays.

Ubuntu / Apple :: Constant Crashes / Stop It To Do So?

Jun 21, 2010

I'm on a MacBook Pro 2,2 with Ubuntu 10.04. Multiple times Ubuntu freezes up and then crashes. I'm not entirely sure what is causing these crashes, but they happen mostly when I'm running anything graphics related, especially games. Although the crashes haven't been isolated to those instances. Any ideas on what could be causing this?

Ubuntu :: Karmic 9.10 With Separate /home Partition Caused "Could Not Update ICEauthority"

Mar 26, 2010

I created a separate /home partition after installing Karmic on a new Sony E series computer.

I used this HowTo : [url]

I copied all the files from the old /home/user using

On booting after the change, the new /home is correctly on a separate partition BUT during boot I get a message : Could not update ICEauthority file /home/user/.ICEauthority

I checked out posts from people with similar problems.

Ownership and permissions for /home/user/.ICEauthority are correct. Deleting the file & waiting for it to be recreated doesn't work. (Not sure I understood the right way to do this.)

But when I compare other hidden files in the new /home/user directory, quite a few now have their ownership changed to root.

I am unable to connect to my external monitor because of a permission problem (probably connected).

Ubuntu :: "Unable To Mount Location, Failed To Retrieve Share List From Server" Update Caused?

Jul 4, 2011

I have had a Dlink 323 network file server for some time. After first getting it going, it has worked fine on both my Ubuntu computers and my Windows machines including a dual boot Ubuntu machine / Vista box. Recently, a problem has appeared that started at about the same time. The Ubuntu machines give me the "Unable to mount location, Failed to retrieve share list from server" error message. The Windows machines still work fine. This message can be caused by a number of problems. I suspect that this time was caused by a update. The linux machines are 11.04 and 10.10.

Ubuntu / Apple :: No Sound On New MBP?

Oct 7, 2010

I have installed Ubuntu 10.04 in MBP that I bought a month ago. I found it easier to install it using the bootcamp through OSX. Ubuntu works well. Nearly everything worked out of the box except the brightness keys and the sound/microphone. I am able to adjust the sound level using the keyboard keys (F10 - F12). However there is no sound. Skype also does not detect a microphone. I searched on the web and found the following instructions:


They did not work either.

Ubuntu / Apple :: No Sound On MPB 5,3 With Kernels 2.6.31-17 And 2.6.31-18?

Jan 16, 2010

I've been using the instructions on the Wiki to compile audio drivers for the Macbook Pro 5,3, and it has worked for a while. But I tried doing the same thing with kernels 2.6.31-17 and 2.6.31-18, but it seems to have no effect: alsamixer only shows one channel (Master) which does nothing, just like a fresh install. Does anyone have updated instructions for these kernels?

Ubuntu / Apple :: No Sound In Macbook White 7, 1

Dec 4, 2010

I installed ubuntu 10.10 in my macbook white 7,1 and as always I am impressed with the support of most of the hardware. Almost everything works, but the sound and the brightness control do not. The sound one is the one that I am more concerned about. I tried to solve it using the documentation for MacBook Pro 7,1 Ubuntu 10.10 (Maverick Meerkat) but the solution did not work.

Ubuntu / Apple :: Got Stereo Sound On MacBook Pro 8,3

May 19, 2011

I have a MacBook Pro 8,3 w/ Natty installed on it and noticed on the wiki [URL]... it says sound only comes out of the right speaker. I just want to share that I got stereo sound on my machine by adding `options snd-hda-intel model=mbp55' to the end of `/etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf' and rebooting. I didn't see a solution anywhere else. I haven't done extensive testing, I just know that now I have sound coming out both speakers (and headphone speakers) at balanced volume levels.

Ubuntu / Apple :: No Sound On Macbook Pro 17"?

May 22, 2011

I have no sound on my macbook pro 17", intel core. I have searched and searched and have not found a solution. I have never yet had sound since I installed ubuntu. I am using 11.04 now.So far, I have edited the document /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf and added this line:options snd-hda-intel model=mbp55, which did nothing.Also ALSAmixer has all the channels turned up all the way except for S/PDIFI don't think it is a hardware problem because when I play an MP3 file in VLC, in the visualization that would normally show the ups and downs of the sound playback, I get a flat line (not sure if that makes sense).
