Re: 18 Xfce Debug Slow Shutdown

Re: 18 Xfce Major Security Bug Hibernate + Suspend Don't Lock Screen

Hey richyrich

No. The Xfce Power Manager system tray icon displays no option for Hibernation / Suspend.

Such an option wouldn't resolve the major security bug that appears to be built into the Menu.

Is this a known bug ? Where does one post such a bug ?

Re: OOPS -- UNSOLVED: Wired Internet Stopped Working in 17.3

Hello I am having similar behaviour. Unfortunately I have one of those new stupid laptops that doesn't have a Ethernet port. Main reason I guess is because the port would ruin it's lovely thin dimensions. So I have a USB 3 Type A > 3xUSB + 1xEthernet port hub. KY-688 plugged in. If I boot into Windo...

Re: How to Bypass nVidia PowerMizer and Adaptive Clocking

Excellent. Thank you. Setting to max not only helps with gfx intensive tasks, but also prevents system crashes on my system. I originally had this experience in Win7 and had to set nvidia powermizer do the same there to prevent occassional system crashes that occured during clock switches. Very glad...

Re: One time only wired ethernet connection

After disconnecting and then reconnecting the cable, does reloading the module help? sudo modprobe -r e1000e ; sudo modprobe e1000e I also appear to have this issue. I can only get an ethernet connection if the cable is plugged during boot. If I unplug then plugin again the connection is not ressum...

Re: BCM4322 with airodump-ng (which driver/firmware to use ?

It's true I'm new to aircrack-ng but as I understand it "Aircrack-ng is a set of tools for auditing wireless networks." With aircrack-ng I should be able to ingest packets previously gained from using airodump to discover a WEP key or use various forms of attack to discover a WPA key for a...

Re: Correct Size Swap + Hibernate Does Not Thaw Bug

Seems there were no more updates on that bug report thread.

So I'm none the wiser.

I've kind of given up on hibernate, though I would like to have seen it in action to compare with windows.
