Re: Ubuntu Live Remix DVD now in stock at AmigaKit

Post by Slayer »

Not wanting to cause any err false drama but I've been playing around with this Live DVD tonight

Now two things I noticed. 3 times I have done cold reboots and 3 times the monitor goes black and the machine resets back into AmigaOS etc
each time my session lasts about 20-30 mins, all I've been doing is browsing with firefox, I also noticed that I couldn't get any movies to play
in youtube at all (not that I actually care LOL) or on other sites, no smooth playback

Now I recall when I used the DVD when it initially arrived my 4890 in it at the time played any movie I threw at it easily, it was a little weird that double
clicking on a youtube movie on the right handside didn't make it play in the window in place of the old movie?

Here's the thing, the 6870 that I have now, which arrived from the states a week or so okay performs just fine on the AmigaOS side, it plays everything just
fine and I even put it through it's paces with gfxbench, which I will attach at the end of this post

Is it possible that my card is a oddity? am I missing something? LIke said, I think it's nothing to worry about, it's just one of those things? I don't think Linux is
placing too much strain on the card since the fans sound just a happy speed... also, doesn't matter whether I use the ethernet card or the GB plugged into the
GB port of my router, exactly same

I just remembered I played a few movies from a USB HD and a USB Stick and they played just fine, sound in sync as well, I guess it's a streaming problem?
But why would the 4890 cruise along where the 6870 can't do alot - is there some switch I need to flick? Is OS Installation a factor?

I'm willing to beat it's just an incompatiability with this card? It's a sapphire 6870 that I brought specifically for this DVD :D :ugeek:

Does the log of performance show anything to indicate somethings wrong?

And do I really need to serial the crash? ;) If so, how do I turn on debug on the Linux side to capture on the other X1000 through term

"Slayer,

I'm also using a HD6870 card. I presume all your tests are from the Live DVD, not a HDD installation?

I suppose it's possible it could be a kernel issue with your gfx card? When you install to a HDD you can download the latest Linux stable Linux kernel from the A-EON website.

You should be able to play any YouTube video with Minitube (which is included). Also Firefox should play Youtube videos as well, but you may need VLC enabled.

I thought that sounded really useful, so I went for it. But it comes out in Chinese here! I haven't done anything with Chinese for 50 years, and I bet a lot of the vocabulary is much newer than that.

Bart,

Very strange. Just clicked on it and my version is in English?

I get the page in Chinese like kilauebart does.

Odyssey 1.16, Danish ISO-8859-15 followed by English selected in Locale prefs (not sure if Odyssey uses that).

Best regards,

Probably a clue for a good decipherer: Chinese in OWB (OS4.1.6), English in Firefox (Ubuntu 12.04 LTS [?])

Even in English, it's going to be a lot of work!

It is probably documented somewhere but what are the cfe commands to boot the DVD into linux.

Edit: I found a good article here that answers this question in case anybody else needs to know.

I simply made a copy of the Live Remix DVD with an "externally" accessible folder with the stable and experimental kernels. and included a PDF with the included 1 page instruction sheet combined with the Installation PDF instructions and burned it to a fresh disc. This way I have everything at hand readable from a PC, MAC, or OS4 system if I lose the original(s).

As an aside, I replaced the SATA DVD-RW with a Blu-Ray Rewriter that allows me to burn 25GB per disc of backups (and such) from Ubuntu and read them in OS4.
