Tried it with that, too. Tried all kinds of combos. Even nv. :(

OH wait. Except for, I didn't notice that "Card0" ... oh, damn. Thanks!

It's okay. I'll get 'round to it when I get 'round to it again. For now, need sleep for a couple hours. Take care.

Well, I finally got back into Arch tonight after a Fedora crash - am going to have to do some work on it.

I'm about to let the longest command in history run. Wish me luck.

Code: Select all

(I'm gonna need that luck. Am having some issues with the Arch servers.)

And, right off the bat:

Code: Select all

error: foobilliard does not match any package or group

WTF? It was there in gtkpacman?

And, after a few modifications for typos, here's the final command that's running now:

Postby dedanna1029 » 17 Jul 2010, 03:40

Oh, what resolved the X thing you ask? It was that i'd only gotten partial updates in; had been having issues with the servers. For some reason this time 'round, I can't get the mirror.kernel.org repo to drop off, even though it's commented out in pacman.conf. Humph. So, now, I still get an error:

Code: Select all

error: failed retrieving file '(whatever)-i686.pkg.tar.xz' from mirrors.kernel.org : Service not available, closing control connection

Then, it goes on to the next server.

Now, here's the kicker.

Aria2's not even installed. I HATE THAT THING.

#Damn #POS won't load my #SOUND - gonna have to go back to my Audigy card, and figure out how to get my mic and headphones working from it. :( #thissucks #IGOTNOSOUND! #I'MGOINGCRAZY! #MUSTHAZSOUND!!!

Yes, I do believe I've been on #Twitter too long. LOL. :B

Am also very very tired from all this setting things up in Arch. I'm also freaking. Sound & music to me is a bigger addiction than any vice I have, quite literally.

Also, damn disk mounter keeps crashing on me when I load into the desktop - can't get my external usb hdds to load; they were loading 'til I went screwing with .rules files, crashed. Then, I removed those files, and the doggone thing is still crashing!!! #thissuckstoo

Boss, PLEASE, make them fix cooker so you can come in and help me with Arch!! LOL.

And, almost 5:00 a.m. here, and I'm all done but the sound (please, please, help me with my sound. postgresql and Amarok1 awaits that). :)

Found gnome-screenshot (didn't have gnome-utils or gnome-common installed yet).

I think I'm going to end up going back to my Vampiress in the end. This is just for now.

Druid? ^^ You tell me. :)

Edit: 6:00 a.m. here, installed Pulseaudio, and I has sound. :) I understand it better, I think. :B :A

Wow! Some night for you there - and I missed it. Nice motive there. So are you happy now? What is your status? You define every success or failure by sound.
I don't even have speakers hoked on my Arch box so I am useless for you there (Well I could hook some up in an emergency).
Here a a background I have played around with. Image

Nah, dude, I'm good, even if a tad loopy, and listening to Traffic's "Something new" :)

Now if I could just find my Vampiress, I'd do real good. :)

Motive? Fedora crashed. I had no choice LMAO

Oh yeah! I like that background!

But I still want my vampiress. Wondering if it's on my 750-Gigger... hhmmm...
