My experience is that some computers that allow you to change which hard disk is the boot disk create a conflict between the order GRUB sees the drives and the order that the BIOS sees the drives and you get a GRUB error when you try to boot. By not installing GRUB over the windows MBR you can boot...

Getting Sound Working in OO Impress

Occasionally, you'll get a .pps slide show from a friend or colleague that contains sound. OO Impress doesn't play the sound "out of the box," but mahmood arbab figured out a way to enable it. I thought it would be worthwhile to post this solution in the Tips section of the Forum: Ok. I am back. Her...

I'm not sure how I did it, but I have xmms working with streamtuner just fine. I thought I installed xmms2... Maybe you have xmms installed from the Community Repo, per anticapitalista's post? EDIT: Nope. I have the Community Repo for M8 activated, and there's no xmms package to be found anywhere -...

Unfortunately, xmms2 doesn't seem to be an actual media player -- I can't figure out what xmms2 really does. :confused: Anyways, replacing "xmms" with "xmms2" in the ~/.streamtuner/config file doesn't work. And forget about trying to install xmms using the .deb file for Etch -- you'll end up with no...

Setting Up Streamtuner on MEPIS 8.0

The xmms player is not included in the Debian Lenny repositories, so streamtuner will return an error when attempting to play an audio stream. Here is a workaround: Open the ~/.streamtuner/config file and replace "xmms" with "realplay" in two places. Save the changes and make sure Real Player is ins...

Before I started using smxi to install nvidia drivers I always used the nvidia script & yes, these issues were always present, but you can ignore them. The script always found & deleted any old drivers.......happened near the end of the script after new drivers were compiled but before they were in...

NVidia Installer Script

Before you begin, see the Wiki and write everything down under header "The Nvidia Way." I found a two major pitfalls when using the NVidia installer script. A. If there are any NVidia legacy drivers installed, these must be removed before exiting X and using the installer script. The easiest way to ...
