Re: convert .ecm file to .bin file(.ecm its a playstation image file)

For anyone reading this in the year 2020 make sure there are no spaces in the ecm filename. Took me 15 minutes to figure out why it wasn't working until I removed all the filename spaces.

Re: [Solved] PIA's client never connects

It's not working , the PIA's client block in the "connecting phase" . I'm convinced PIA just straight up does not work on any CURRENT version of linux (16.04, 16.10 etc). I've tried 4 different flavors of ubuntu and also debian and nothing works. Same operation not permitted error in my l...

Re: Have you made a bootable usb drive with Linux?

Re: Can't choose > 1024x768 (radeon 9800XT)

Update: I confirmed that linux is not detecting my monitors EDID which is the cause of the problem. I found this guide written by a user with a very similar setup as mine but this was way back with Ubuntu 9.04. https://wiki.ubuntu.com/X/Config/Resolution#Setting_resolution_changes_in_xorg.conf_--_re...

Stuck in boot loop unless I use nomodeset?

I'm on my work computer messing around with linux and I successfully installed LM 16 (32-bit) but I'm stuck in a boot loop unless I use nomodeset? So I used nomodeset to get in, then I tried to install the proprietary nvidia driver 331.49 which the nvidia site says officially supports my old PCI add...

sudo ppa-purge ppa:oibaf/graphics-drivers add xorg-egders and install it completely as suggested on the launchpad page. This PPA is currently meant to be used as a whole. Please do _not_ individually install packages from it, add it to your sources and let your package manager pull in every update ...
