Gnome 3... what the hey... not bad.

I was just recently upgrading an Arch box here in the house and it downloaded and installed Gnome 3 to my surprise.
After installing the new gnome-desktop... It actually is not bad!

I'm kinda liking it and my wife actually likes it beter!

Still, I'm still a Gnome 2 crudgemudgin.....

Re: sd hdhomerun prime

and as I have discussed before. Nothing on our Time Warner cable system is copy freely.

Any Brave Souls?

Has anyone using Ubuntu for mythtv been brave enough to upgrade to 11.04? I'm still terrified at the idea of moving my back-end and front-ends over.....

Re: storage group options

It is my understanding that you can move the files to any storage place you have listed in the setup as a drive for recordings and it should still work. Try moving one file and see if it works. If it does, great... if not, you can simply move it back. I don't think this will break anything with the ...

Re: SSD and Linux

I've run both arch and crunchbang on an eeec 701 netbook. No problems with the small ssd. No swap file used, of course. I put home on a removable sd card.

Re: 3/23 ViewSonic gTablet 10.1" woot.com 279.99 + $5 shipp

I'm glad that there are now mods that make it useful. I tried one and was advised by viewsonic to return it because they were having terrible firmware issues. While I noticed the view angle and it did bother me, it was the lack of faith by the tech in his own product that had me wanting to drop it l...

Re: The problem with Linux and MythTV (bait line)

Cool! I'm pleased to see another sony PS3 remote user. I used this solution for a while but gave up after going through batteries like water down the basin. What kind of battery life do you have? Have any changes given sleep options that work well enough for the remote? Please share your experiences...

The problem with Linux and MythTV (bait line)

Unfortunately for this forum, the problem with Linux and MythTV is that once configured it keeps working indefinitely and we have nothing about which to post or complain. Good lord when was the last time I rebooted or even touched my MythTV backend? Oh I remember, the power company was changing out ...
