Re: Cadence Died

It lives. After restoring from my tar files from a few weeks ago (all data on different file systems) and having another fight with grub. In an ideal world, one would have reference documentation that tells how stuff works, and what files figure in what way. However, that doesn't happen (in anythin...

Re: Cadence Died

I don't have another desktop environment in this version: it is nicely tailored to the desktop that I like. I'll have a look at dbus and ibus. <next> removed ibus, which doesn't look line anything I'd want anyway. No result. A Thought about boot-repair stuff... Would running dpkg -configure -a have ...

Cadence Died - Fixed

After an evening of messing around with messed up grub, and finally sorting it, some music would have been nice... My long, long stable and trusty Cadence is not running at all. You can tell, I've been system messing, but all through the grub problems I know that cadence was active (running minimise...

Re: My Dream Studio: Can Linux Do It?

And I've looked into KXstudio. I'm sorry, but all I see is a dark-themed UI. I can't do dark themes. They give me a headache. Also, audio is just one of the things I use my computer for. Will KXstudio's modifications prevent me from watching DVDs or video's online? I really need an OS that can do i...

Re: Alsa_in, alsa_out questions. . .

Thinking that my once-much-loved RME card might as well be in a PCI slot instead of on the shelf, I gave alsa_out/alsa_in a quick spin. I just copied examples of the command lines from the net and, from error messages, I must have got some of the periods/frames stuff completely wrong, but ...there t...

Re: KXStudio FAQ

A brain cell quotes... a zombie process is a process that occupies a slot in the process table but nothing else. If it quoting correctly, it means that it is costing nothing nothing in resources. A lot of peoples' expectations of operating systems have been formed by a certain, err, popular, commerc...

Re: KXStudio FAQ

What falkTX and I are thinking of (I think :?: ) is disk caching.

From a quick google, it is explained nicely for non-developers here Why does Linux use so much memory?

Re: KXStudio FAQ

Applications using memory is one thing, but there is a heap of stuff that the kernel caches, and can happily look after.

Re: KXStudio FAQ

Well, despite quite a few years of Unix system admin, I'm very rusty, had brain cells destroyed by using W-XP for ten years before returning to LInux, and generally out of date, so I am not contradicting you, and feel free to correct me, but... I agree with you about application not freeing up memor...

Re: KXStudio FAQ

I think this is correct, although I'm not 100% sure. Still, it kinda works like this. Yes, I think it does work like this. People have a thing about keeping their memory empty ... then why did they buy it! If Linux/Unix really needs more memory, it will be swapping memory out to disk. Even this it ...

I usually drop in once a day. Zero spam is probably a dream, but you guys have brought what was becoming a horrible mess back under control

Congratulations, and keep up the good work :D

Re: Carla

Thanks for that! Although I have 12.04 installed (and trying out MATE) I am probably going to stick to 11.04 for a while ... until something comes along that is too good to miss on 12.04! Anyway, it is nice to find that Carla is working in my system, and that it was al a big mistake. I can play now :D

Re: Accidentally deleted partitions...

testdisk , as mentioned above is probably the best for this kind of emergency. It is not very user friendly, but it is a lot more so than obscure command line disk/file-system utilities. As long as you don't give it any instruction to write you can explore it freely to see what it will come up with...
