Anybody know of a currently availible analogue video capture device
currently avaible that works with linux. Video Audio in being preffered.
There appear to be a signifcant number of USB devices around any of these
work with linux.
Mind you since it is only for conversion of some tapes to digital probably
does not matter if it only works in Windows XP as long as the software
does not cost the earth.
I have a Debian/Squeeze NFS server running kernel 2.6.32-5-xen-amd64 and a
Debian/Unstable NFS client.
I just did "rm -rf" on a directory containing 4.2G of files that was mounted
via NFS. It was a directory with three large files which were MP4 files
captured from digital TV, I had watched them all recently with mplayer. df
didn't report any more free space.
To get the space back I ended up commenting out the line from /etc/exports,
running "exportfs -r", then umounting and mounting it. I didn't check whether
the space was free after running "exportfs -r", it probably was.
It seems that I was caught by the issue of open file handles. NFS is
stateless so it doesn't necessarily process deletion for some time to handle
the case of a NFS client that is running processes with open file handles.
How long is this supposed to go for? Can I force NFS to give up such caching
when I need the space sooner than NFS will free it?

Sounds like there's a lot of good technical information in here. In
my case, I have additional constraints for any serious speaker system
- RF immunity. Most PC speaker systems make excellent broadband
radio receivers. Not the thing you need then you have 100W of SSB
floating around! :D

Well, until the moderator speaks, continue on. :)

I don't think this is the case - or at least I am unable to find any
muting. The card appear to be enabled OK.
I have reported it as a bug to launchpad and their tests also indicated
that there is a problem.
I have a laptop running Kubuntu 11.04. In attempting to upgrade to
11.10 via the internet the upgrade fails citing unable to get Kubuntu
-wallpaper, so I downloaded the alternate cd, disconnected from the
internet and attempted to upgrade from the cd using 'sh cdromupgrade'.
Normally I would use my own logon but in a last desperate attempt I
changed to root.
Results are shown below:
root@Toshiba:/media/cdrom0# sh cdromupgrade

could not open display
can't load DistUpgradeViewGtk (No module named vte)
can't load DistUpgradeViewGtk3 (Namespace Gtk not available for version 3.0)

Is there something wrong with the command I have used?

And back to luv-main.
Could we do something about finding the setting in the new mailing list
software to remove the nasty "[luv-main] [luv-talk] [luv-main]" subject
line cruft that will no doubt appear once this ends up back on the
luv-main list? I fear that it's been a month now, and might almost become
accepted behaviour to keep munging the subject line like that. And then
it's only a short path down the track to LUV-main become a web-forum
Having problems booting with Ubuntu 11.10
The PC works perfectly on live CD, detecting and configuring video
Ubuntu install with no errors using default options.
However when booting off newly installed OS, it just shows a blank white
screen after showing a few bios stuff - I am not even sure if it has
booted and it is just a video issue or a complete crash - but it does
not seem to respond to keyboard.
This is a new ASUS built box with a P8P67 LE Mobo.
This has a EFI bios. So
Is there a different installation procedure that needs to be done for
EFI ? (its my first experience with EFI)
Most EFI stuff from google seem to relate to Mac booting!
I have an little microcontroller and LCD that can display windows bmp files,
but it only seems to work with the ones provided.
When I create a bmp file with the same basic resolution, colour depth etc,
it fails to display.
Does anyone know of a way to convert an image to bmp format having the same
characteristics as a reference image?
I'm sure I could work it out for this specific case, but it would be handy
thing to be able to do in general.
I have downloaded a 4 part video that had been split into parts for down
loading and I wish to put back into a single file. Any one have any
sugestions for a decent utilty for this.
I minor point is it plays the files at the wrong aspect ratio the correct
The files are a fairly rare german film of the history of the
Schnellboots (literaly fast boats, the german ww2 torpedo boats)..
