Re: Errors After Upgrade & Kernel Switch / ZFS Grub Udev & M

Thank you, lxnay. I'll just not worry about the zfs errors, then. I reinstalled grub-2 directly from entropy but am still getting the same “error: file not found” messages in grub. But it still boots past grub just fine, whether I make choices or not. I performed: grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cf...

Errors After Upgrade & Kernel Switch ZFS Grub Udev [Solved]

I just did an equo update & upgrade that included grub 2.00, sys-fs/zfs-userspace-20120730, glib, and some 80+ other packages. ZFS did not appear to go too well: (30/91) >>> sys-fs/zfs-userspace-20120730 >> ## Unpacking: sys-fs:zfs-userspace-20120730~0.tbz2 >> ## SPM: setup phase * Could not find a ...

Re: VLC & SMPlayer Audio Gone – Amarok-YouTube-Clementine OK

I have been looking on the vlc forum for some further answers to this issue, and began a thread over there at ( http://forum.videolan.org/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=102552 ) which goes into more specific detail than this post. They have been quite helpful, and it appears that, though vlc was running when ...

Re: VLC & SMPlayer Audio Gone – Amarok-YouTube-Clementine OK

Still have had no luck, but I took a snapshot of a log (Tools > Messages, set to level 2-debug) while vlc was playing an mp4 file - it does have some errors throughout but I don't know how to interpret them to see what I am missing, or has corrupted. I'll post it here, up until the last line, which ...

Re: VLC & SMPlayer Audio Gone – Amarok-YouTube-Clementine OK

I installed media-plugins/gst-plugins-faac, as well as all the other plugins you had and I did not. I installed them one at a time, and opened vlc and SMPlayer with an mp4 file (that did work before...) after each installation from the plugin list. Video is fine in both, still no audio in either one...

Re: VLC & SMPlayer Audio Gone – Amarok-YouTube-Clementine OK

Thanks for your settings, Fitzcarraldo. I looked at the System Settings > Mutlimedia > Phonon > Audio Hardware Setup and Backend settings - they seem the same as when I accessed them in the Phonon window, through what I had called the "kmix > mixer" settings method, and are still set as mentioned ab...

Re: VLC & SMPlayer Audio Gone – Amarok-YouTube-Clementine OK

Thanks, wolfden. I started SMPlayer with an mp4 file (video is working with the mp4, not with an flv, but still no audio), then I checked in pavucontrol. In the “Playback” tab there is only one mono bar designated System Settings, with no meter level reading. In the “Output Devices” there is a stere...

VLC & SMPlayer Audio Gone – Amarok-YouTube-Clementine OK

Two days ago I opened vlc to play an mp4 audio/video file, it worked for about 3 sec. And then mysteriously the audio output just stopped. With vlc, the file is playing, there is progress in the time bar, I can get video, but no audio. Amarok plays mp3s fine, with data display, and appears normal Cl...

Re: Kwin Overloads CPU After Updates

Well, I tried re-enabling Desktop Effects after the latest round of updates today, which included the nvidia set going to 295.49. I changed "Enabled" back to =true, rebooted, and everything is running with all kde effects in place as fast as before. I did leave the 90-extensions.conf file in place (...

Re: Long pause at 'Waiting for uevents to be processed' [Sol

A quick note - for anyone having this as a recurring issue, I have noticed that every time kde updates (I just did 4.8.2 to 4.8.3) it overwrites the blacklist.conf file. I needed to reinsert the blacklist wl command in the file to get things back to normal. It's happened twice now, and both times th...
