Ah, I break out of running stuff with ^Z normally and that doesn't give me anything besides my regular prompt but with ^C I get this --- voidmain.is-a-geek.net ping statistics --- 25 packets transmitted, 19 received, 24% packet loss, time 24023ms rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 141.770/148.835/201.321/13.264...

funny pic

this happened some time ago to a colleague of mine at work, I just had to take a picture of it and share it with all of you :twisted:
Keyboard error
This is on a laptop running XP severe pitch 2 so it's not like it's an error on an old machine.

Uh, the results looked pretty similar to me but if you say I have around 30% packet loss I take your word for it, it's probably written somewhere where I don't know what to look for then. I remember when I used to ping from winblows machines I had a result that actually told me how much lost packets...

sometime simpossibly
Wow, Calum missed one :D

I thought it was on my end because my computer seems kinda slow lately but I've been experiencing the same these last few days, from work too now that I think about it.

No gtkpod doesn't have an option to do that. But I'm curious about how you restored the internal database when you had those similar problems because nothing what I did seemed to solve the problem until I was able to load gtkpod again ... The idea of being able to use amarok for all my music needs i...

amarok and iPod nano - informative post

Today had some issues with gtkpod not starting up due to a dependency problem with a library. I gave amarok a shot since it boasts iPod compatibility as a feature. To cut a long story short amarok completely screwed up the itunes database and my iPod refused to play at all after loading some new fil...

Isn't sysv-rc-conf quite close to standard across systems?
The package exists for both red-hat and debian, so most of the systems should be able to use that ...

chkconfig and service are red-hat specific I think, aren't they?

I think at one point Void Main said something along the lines of "The first thing I do after a fresh install is trun inetd off" but I'm not sure anymore, it might even be at "the other place" ... Have you tried printing without cupsd running? It might be like ssh, you don't need to have sshd running...

What kind of browser app are you talking about?
Is it java based, flash or another proprietary web interface, ....
Perhaps the problem isn't firefox-related?
Have you tried another browser like Opera or Seamonkey/Mozilla?

If you don't use bluetooth devices you can definitely shut down that one. For the rest I would shut down nfs and everything that's related (portmap, nfslock, rpcidmapd) if your desktop is a standalone system, if you actually use nfs shares on your lan it's a different story ... pcmcia I would shut d...

Do you have all of the files I llisted above? My personal guess would be that mplayer-plugin uses and older quicktime codec than the stream you wanna watch, which gives you image but no sound ... Again, with my setup I have both image and sound so it's definitely possible to watch that feed under li...

I guess the video wouldn't play either if he'd done that and he claims to have video but no sound.
