[ubuntu] Unbelievably slow transfer rate to iRiver media playerview story

http://ubuntuforums.org – I recently purchased an iRiver P7 media player which I am using with Rhythmbox under Ubuntu 9.04. The transfer speed when uploading files to the player is phenomenally slow - the first 50 or so MB reported virtually instantly then the speed immediately drops to about 12-15KB/sec yes KB/sec so a 3-400MB video file takes hours to transfer to the player.

How to Stop xorg.conf Auto-Generation?view story

http://forums.fedoraforum.org – m on a Fedora 12 box, and it's my job to do some custom configs to xorg.conf. To start this, I have to remove a bunch of devices' entries and modify others. We're using the proprietary Nvidia drivers, and they work fine except that something - perhaps the NVIDIA X Server Settings app - keeps modifying the xorg.conf. (HowTos)

Plain Text, Archiving, and Presentation Fidelityview story

http://www.linux.com – My introduction to computers was as a hobby. My first computer had Microsoft Works for MS-DOS version 1.05 installed on it. Among other things, I decided to use the computer to keep a journal. It was perfect. I could do all my writing on the computer and even edit the text without wasting paper.   (General)

[ubuntu] I want to upgrade my hardware of my old computer.view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – My computer is old, it had Windows XP when we first got it. I installed Ubuntu after it was slow, I liked it.

I want to get a new video and graphics card(I think they are the same but I'm not sure) And maybe something else that would make my computer be like better. I would like get a list of hardware that I should upgrade. Thanks! (Hardware)

It doesn't even have 1GB of memory, and I'm not even sure what type of graphics card it has -.- Is there a way to see my graphics card, and maybe other hardware info? I'd like to see if theres any hope for this computer before I throw it away :| (Hardware)

[ubuntu] Cannot suspend or hibernate Asus N61J Laptopview story

http://ubuntuforums.org – Recently got a new laptop for work, an Asus N61J, and I installed Ubuntu 9.10 on it. For whatever reason, the laptop will not suspend. I have no idea why, as it looks like it is going to, but ultimately dumps me back at the Unlock screen, as though I had just locked the computer, rather than suspending it. (Hardware)

[kubuntu] No sound after switching to SLiM (instead of KDM)view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – Greetings! I've installed Karmic 64bit on my desktop. Previously I used ubuntus from version 5.04. Everything was OK. But if I switch to SLiM instead of default KDM login manager, I have no sound. Maybe KDM runs some scripts/daemons on start that SLiM doesn't? Maybe you know what daemons should I run? If I switch back to KDM everything works properly.' (Hardware)
