Ubuntu Installation :: 10.10 Frontend Crashes And Then Logs Out
Oct 16, 2010
When I upgraded to 10.10 mythbuntu and after I did a clean install I get the same results. When I select a recording to play it appears the frontend crashes and I end up logged out of the machine. This happens 100% of the time.
I have installed mythbuntu 10.04. It worked well for a few days. Now my frontend does not start or crashes just after booting. You can see the frontend background for a few seconds but the menu does not load. After that, the mythtv window disappears and you can see the ubuntu desktop. Here are the last few lines from the log file:
2010-06-07 07:32:49.622 MythContext: Connecting to backend server: 127.0.0.1:6543 (try 1 of 1) 2010-06-07 07:32:49.623 Using protocol version 56 mount: can't find /dev/sdb in /etc/fstab or /etc/mtab
When I try to login as me - it gets pretty far but then something happens and automatically logs out. This happens in Gnome, Kde too. Now - I have no problem logging in a Root. Is there a way I can try to stop the login process before it kicks me out, or is there a way to look at some files to tell me what's going on?
I want to be able to create a Dialog (similar to the one for Winetricks, run it without parameters to see it) with a checklist that tells my script to go out and download whatever scripts of mine I've selected. I also wish to make a GUI for some of my more complex scripts, such as my Backup script so I can have a nice looking menu instead of a text based one.Does anybody know a good place to learn how to do this, with lots of explanations and breakdowns of each part of the script?
After overcomming a lot of difficulties, my MythTV (Via Epia 10000EG with Hauppauge PVR 500 card) worked with Mythbuntu 9.04. Last year it crashed and I had no time to spare to rebuild it.
Last couple of weeks I had more time and downloaded and tried to install Mythbuntu 10.10. Everything seems to be installed ok, but I get no picture in MythTV when I select "Watch TV" and no picture when I try to record something. When watching TV, the message "Please wait" appears for appr. 5 secs and then the system returns to the menu.
I installed Mythbuntu 10.10 and am using the provided IVTV drivers.
Dmesg and lspci give no errors, every seems to be in order, IVTV drivers are loaded, initialized and errorfree. Cat /dev/video0 gives me static in MPLAYER. The MythTV backendlog doesn't even give a message, the frontend log just says there is no picture...
There seems to be an error between the back and frontend. I checked the settings in capturecards, TV sources, channel edits, etc,etc, but I can't find it.
I know the crontab format and editing is pretty easy, but I always forget the format. So I would like to have a frontend/gui. As far as I can tell a good one doesn't exist anymore.kcron - what I used to use, no longer exists (and I switched to ubuntu from kubuntu)gnome-schedule - does not show all users, does not allow for fine control that kcron had.Does anyone know a good gui/frontend for crontab? I guess I'm just going to have to get in the habit of researching the file syntax, how to edit it, and editing manually.
When looking for MySQL GUI, I find many applications which provide a frontend to database management.I am looking for a GUI for database entry, rather than database management, approximating Glom or VFront, but Glom is buggy (and development sluggish) and VFront difficult to get set up.Ideally, I would have my own private (GTK, say) data entry tool, which would look much like an HTML form, with labelled fields for the MySQL columns, Previous/Next buttons, saving the current row and moving you up/down to the next one, radio buttons or drop-down menus for columns with limited entries, etc.Of course, [Tab]-navigation and keyboard shortcuts [Ctrl]+[C], etc., should work as well. (Yes, that is very annoying about Glom, for example.)
I am looking for some software which acts as a web proxy with a web frontend. In other words my work web access is filtered and I would like to login to my own web proxy on an apache run server and redirect my traffic. If it has a PHP frontend that would be about right.
I want to make a FTP server with web frontend for administering it, eg creating users, groups, setting which directories users can access and so on.I found some web frontends for proFTPd, like those URL... , bus all of them seems to be very old and doesn't work nicely. I tried ProFTP Administrator and it won't work.Do you know some solutions to manage ftp server users, groups, permissions over web? Or by some frontend program.
On our app server the logs from the Sybase Mobilink service get logged to /var/log because of that I did a chmod a+rx /var/log and all is well until.... the next day QA logs in goes to check the logs and gets:
The thing I like about mplayer is navigation in video at steps of 10s,1m or 10m. There are so many GUI's available yet I have not seen any in which our cursor hovers over slide to see time at that position. Like .....'s flash player allows you to go at any desired time in video.I think if the skin knows the length of video then it can divide length of slide timewise .
I'm configuring a debian computer to act as a router for my home network. I want to split my home network into two parts and define different firewall rules for these parts. I also want to use dhcp to make sure every time a computer logs in it gets the same ip but is still able to log in somewhere else. The biggest problem now is that I have to make some functions able to someone that has never worked with linux before.
I've worked with software routers like pfsense before and I would like a similar web frontend to this. Does anyone know if there is such a piece of software? I'm not using pfsense itself because I don't want to virtualize it and I need some things like the software raid5 and some htpc software I don't want to try to get working on pfsense. I've previously used webmin untill it was hacked because of an exploit in it so I preferably don't want to use that one. I've been working with the dd-wrt software and something like this would do the trick perfectly!
I can't get mythtv to play television with my Hauppauge HVR-850 tv card. I was able to view tv in mplayer, so I know that the card is working. The tv signal is broadcast only (no cable). I had to set the card type to DVB DTV capture card (v3.x) to get mythtv-setup to successfully scan. I was able to successfully scan both with a "full scan" and with a channels.conf file that I had generated earlier when tinkering tv in mplayer. Unfortunately, the mythtv frontend failed to play any live tv. It said "Error: MythTV is using all inputs, but there are no active recordings?"
So 1 year ago I installed Lenny, but in the process of installation during the splitting of the drive I have mistakenly set a seperate parition for "/var/logs" instead of "/var/log". Is there any way to redirect all the logs to this seperate partition (var/logs) or it's better to go through the whole trouble* of installing Lenny again? *the trouble because it was hell of a problem to fix grub that didn't recognize SmartArray RAID (cciss driver), the problem is that I don't really remember how I fixed it. Symbolic link won't help since physically it will still be on the other partition. Do I have any other option?
I set up Ubuntu on an old iBook G4, planning to use it as a front end to my main box. Installed 10.04 no problem, and from there, used Software Center to install MythTV Front end. Have done the same thing on a netbook, no problem.
However, on this PPC Mac, the front end works fine, navigation, menus, etc, until I try to play a recorded programme - the screen is blank, and I just get white noise from the speakers.
(BTW am trying Ubuntu as I don't have a Mac OS new enough to get any of the current Mac MythFrontEnd builds working)
When I try to play a video in vlc, totem or banshee, it immediately logs me out. Sometimes this happens when I try to full screen the video. This seems to happen only after upgrading to ubuntu 11, and happens for multiple kinds of files, like avi and m4v. The motherboard is Asus a8v-mx. How to fix my ubuntu installation

Requirements - 1) Should have options to show only graphical packages.2) Easy to use.Software-center is outdated and packagekit doesn't work well (search for 'winff' with graphical packages filter) with any backend.
My intention is to have EngineX on the frontend handling all static files, and Apache + mod_php in charge of handling PHP requests. I have optimized nginx to be as efficient as possible in handling static files, but have very little experience with Apache. Since Apache would only be processing PHP requests, would the standard Apache optimization guides suffice or would it best to configure it differently?
PS: this is a dedicated file server, the database is hosted separately.
i get file system errors on boot up. found logs in /var/logs but cant access them. second best thing i can do is to re-install debian but no one seems to want to say how thats done. my disk wont run in wine (some error i dont remember) so i cant use my CD /flashdrive to re-install.
1) i need to read the log files and try to fix the install 2) if i cant fix i need to know how to wipe the OS and do a fresh install
I am testing several programs for video editing and video format change.I have been trying avidemux, and now I am trying to use ffmpeg, and a graphical frontend for it, Winff.As an example I am trying to convert an MP4 file to AVI. I obtain an error that says: "Unknown encoder 'libxvid'". How could I possibly now what I have to install to be able to convert the files without errors?
PD: This is the output from ffmpeg when called from Winff:
