Re: Half-Life 2 Install through the Steam Linux Client issue

[url=http://steamcommunity.com/id/Bucky21659/]A friend[/url] tipped me off about this thread and asked me to say that if you are not using experimental fglrx drivers , then you need to use Synaptic (or your favourite package manager frontend) to purge any driver with the word 'fglrx' in it, and then...

Re: [MULTISEAT/VIRTUAL] Free Windows/Linux multiseat solutio

In general chances are MUCH better with AMD Yeah, except for how ATi has a history of bad support for Linux gaming, in comparison to nVidia. Hopefully that changes in the near future, now that Valve is on the scene. Did you hear the Linus Torvald comment on Nvidia? Yes, but I think that's regarding...

Re: [MULTISEAT/VIRTUAL] Free Windows/Linux multiseat solutio

My current computer is.... https://gist.github.com/BurritoBazooka/4950495 ... The motherboard is an Asus M4A78LT-M, the GPU is an nVidia GTS450. The CPU is an AMD Phenom II 555. Apparently there is an SVM option in the BIOS, and Linux also thinks it can do SVM ("cat /proc/cpuinfo | grep svm" returns...

Re: [MULTISEAT/VIRTUAL] Free Windows/Linux multiseat solutio

The schools I've been at, and the one I volunteer at now, mostly use full desktops for each workstation. I haven't come across any VDI or multiseat solution in schools. But most of them store login details, files, and programs on a central server. Yeah, even if I buy new hardware for my own computer...

Re: Password's are useless

I have no problems typing my 12-characters-or-more operating system password. Now that's just way over the top. You're not telling porkies about the length of your password are you? My 11 characters is sufficient for me. I was cryptic about the length on purpose. It might be twelve. It might be mor...

Re: [MULTISEAT/VIRTUAL] Free Windows/Linux multiseat solutio

Thanks for the reply. It's very interesting :D I'll be sure to save it for when I actually do this. The current hardware at my disposal can't do all of that. But I'll need to get new hardware anyway, I think. Intel Core 2 Duos don't run as cool as Intel i*-series at the same speed. edit: I'm very su...

Re: Password's are useless

I have no problems typing my 12-characters-or-more operating system password... It's become muscle memory by now. Problem is, if I ever want to change it, I'll have to learn how to type the new one that quickly. As mentioned above, they are actually useful if you have any hope of staying secure whil...

[MULTISEAT/VIRTUAL] Free Windows/Linux multiseat solution?

Hey, anyone here know of a free/open source solution for multiseat on Windows (and possibly Linux as well)? I found this , but I'm sure this must have been done before using something that doesn't need to be paid for. I thought it might be possible to run two Windows images on a KVM on top of Linux,...

Re: Cannot update due to "Broken Packages"

It appears doing the following worked well for me:

Code: Select all

sudo mv /usr/share/doc/libjack-jackd2-0/ /usr/share/doc/libjack-jackd2-0.old/
sudo apt-get -f install
The error is gone :)

Re: Cannot update due to "Broken Packages"

It seems my heavy usage of PPAs have finally gotten the best of me. It would be better if there was One Repository to Rule Them All. At this stage, it seems easy to blame the many developers who use PPAs as their official distribution method for Ubuntu, instead of getting their software into the mai...

Re: [SOLVED] bootrepair probs encountered while running comm

I solved this by not using boot-repair, and installing GRUB the proper way, after copying my Linux partition from the old drive again. Boot-repair did something weird to the kernel, which meant the proper install method did not even detect Linux automatically. The message which said that 'no changes...

[SOLVED] bootrepair probs encountered while running commands

Hey, I'm in the process of moving Linux Mint, Windows, and all the data that goes around it, to a shiny new 1TB hard drive. My priority is to boot Linux Mint first. I can fix Windows after that. So far, I've copied (using gparted) my root directory (ext4) and an exchange directory (ext2) for Linux, ...

Re: [SOLVED] Mint 13 Cinnie - random and rare freeze. how2lo

No, I couldn't figure it out.. It looks quite complicated. I've never touched kernel-related things before except for installing the odd ready-made kernel modules. I decided to start troubleshooting the normal way, and luckily, POST hanging on USB controllers gave me a big clue regarding what was th...

Re: Linux Mint 13 Random hangs/freezes

You can find some logs in /var/log/ - and there was a hint given to me when I had similar logging problems, though I have not needed to use it. It should, somehow, be able to give you more detailed logs. I'm not able to try it now as I'm 2000 miles away from my Linux PCs. You may have a look at this...

Re: Mint 13 Cinnie - random and rare computer freeze. how2lo

It's been nearly two weeks, seems like it hasn't happened again. Just after I came back from my time away, my computer hanged during POST. It didn't completely freeze, but it would hang for a long time (> 1 minute) when initializing the USB controller. This isn't Linux or Windows related, it happene...

It just happened again tonight.. No clear sign that there's anything wrong from what I can tell from the logs

Hey, I've been using Mint for a couple of months now, and Linux for a few years on and off. On my current computer, though, I've been having random but quite rare crashes (three within the last two weeks). The mouse would freeze, my music would go in a ~.5 second constant loop, and the screen wouldn...
