Read this

 If the md driver detects a write error on a device in a  RAID1,  RAID4,
       RAID5,  RAID6,  or  RAID10  array,  it immediately disables that device
       (marking it  as  faulty)  and  continues  operation  on  the  remaining
       devices.   If  there are spare drives, the driver will start recreating
       on one of the spare drives the data which was  on  that  failed  drive,
       either by copying a working drive in a RAID1 configuration, or by doing
       calculations with the parity block on RAID4,  RAID5  or  RAID6,  or  by
       finding and copying originals for RAID10.

       In  kernels  prior  to  about 2.6.15, a read error would cause the same
       effect as a write error.  In later kernels, a read-error  will  instead
       cause  md  to  attempt a recovery by overwriting the bad block. i.e. it
       will find the correct data from elsewhere, write it over the block that
       failed, and then try to read it back again.  If either the write or the
       re-read fail, md will treat the error the same way that a  write  error
       is treated, and will fail the whole device.

Since all seem to be removed read this:

Obviously ignore the parts about parted magic, test disk.  fsck is already in linux (if you didn't know that).  You have not explained what we are working with here btw.  RAID5 external NAS i assume? 

Just run these two commands (dev/xxx being one/all of the RAID partitions of course) and report back the info.  Unless you feel comfortable fixing it urself.  I am not sure its a bad superblock, not a good idea to start trying to fix things without knowing what the problem is first.  Just a guess.  Good Luck!   :) 

sudo fdisk -l

mdadm -E /dev/xxx (on all the RAID partitions)

Users / On screen keyboard keeps popping up in computing menu

I have been having this problem for a bit now when typing.  About every six, seven letters the dang keyboard pops up.  I found if i hold down control and move the scroller on the mouse(resizing the browser) up and down it doesn't do it.  Just wanted to put that out there for people having the same issue. 

Installation issues / Re: Realtek® ALC887 - No sound
« on: March 27, 2013, 02:31:01 am »
so apparently i am stupid, disregard what i said.  sound should work with the alc883 on 10.04 out of box.  I had my tv plugged in DVI to HDMI on an HDMI input from an 8500 GTX.  Well my tv doesn't support audio coming in analog while plugged in to a digital input... DERP. :P

I am having a similar problem with alc883.  If i follow this,5539.0.html i get beeps at boot.  there are drivers specific to your card which you can find here.
it would seem that your card is not listed tho.  i have not had success so far with messing with the alsa config.  also open alsamixer in the terminal and make sure the output your using is not muted.  i cant tell you anymore than that.  if you find a solution please post it. 

crap i can't find my manual for these things... anyone out there able to help????

Users / Duplicate tv listings.
« on: December 18, 2008, 05:48:29 pm »
I had a problem earlier with lmce downloading listings from source, I had a completely blank listings menu.  So i told lmce to download again from the setup menu and now i have duplicate listings.  Two of every channel since i only have one list to download from source.  What is the correct way to fix this?


Installation issues / Re: "nv" driver not working correctly...
« on: September 29, 2008, 03:38:33 pm »
just thought i should post that i had problems with telinit 1 and the nvidia driver compiling a new kernel for me.  I used CTRL+ALT+BKSPACE to killx and had no problems that way.  GL.


Users / Re: Change WIKI hardware section on motherboards?
« on: September 18, 2008, 06:59:22 pm »
yeah your right about the boards being obsolete, that is exactly what happened to me and was forced to try a couple boards.  Luckily for me the second time was a charm.  The other thing is that the people that do know how to get things working have already done that and are not likely to try new things just for fun and giggles.  I know im not going to be trying any new boards anytime soon, i got my setup going finally and would like to learn the more advanced parts of LMCE before diving into install problems again.  Really the only smart thing to do here is just keep it the way it is and hope that people update the wiki and if that doesn't happen then the regulars are going to have read the forums and do it for everyone else.  Which i don't mind doing,  i just don't trust what other people say about things unless i know who they are and have helped me out before.  Eroneous info in the wiki has gotten me a couple times when i first started, and found myself and and my boss updating the wiki alot before getting things working.  We could also start a code of ethics here on the board and the people that don't follow these ethics on a regular get ignored until they do what they are supposed to. 


Installation issues / Re: Setting up a Hauppauge PVR USB2
« on: September 18, 2008, 06:14:35 pm »
i think it's the hauppauge, the error message says that the device is sending back the error.  Did you set it up in pluto?  Could be a driver malfunction.

IMHO, the motherboard section in the wiki is a great idea, but ultimately futile.  As mentioned above, MBs change too often and people don't update the wiki (myself included).  When I was looking for a MB I started with the wiki, and basically none of the entries were available any longer.  Ultimately I based my choice on manufacturer, features, and chipset.  I don't remember the exact MB I bought, but I doubt the exact version is still available and that's the real problem.

A couple ideas that MAY help.  As mentioned above, change it from motherboard to chipset info, this is what most of us talk in anyway.  For example, if someone asked what a good MB is for integrated graphics, the typical response isn't to suggest a MB, but to suggest getting one with an nvidia 6150 chipset or whatever.

Another idea, instead of asking people to create a generic wiki page entry have a "submit your hardware" button that asks a series of questions or opens a template.  The template can have a number canned items such as integrated graphics chipset, manufacturer, number of pci slots, success/failure details, version of LMCE tested with, other notes, etc. etc. etc.  Clicking submit then creates a uniform wiki entry or even an entry in a searchable database.  Yes, I'm sure creating wiki pages is easy stuff, but in the end people are just not doing it.  Making it dead simple and not requiring a login for wiki entry or somehow using logins from this forum would probably increase the amount of user supplied info on the wiki.

Then you would have to read a rack of entries to figure out what you want.  Instead of saying ok this is what i can spend here is what falls into the price range and look at the equipment you picked out.  Unless there was some kind of database that broke it up into categories i don't think that would work very well.  Not that it's a bad idea, just time consuming for a new user.

the crawling issue, the cursor moves all on it's own, sometimes very fast making it impossible to use.


Installation issues / Re: Audio and Video Problems
« on: September 17, 2008, 06:31:11 pm »
need more info, what is the video output going to.  What did you set up for video resolution(DVI,VGA etc etc, res and hrtz.)?  What is the native resolution on your tv or monitor (setting that it is made for).  how did you update the nvidia driver?  what nvidia driver did you use? If your playing dvd is it a ide or sata drive? MORE INFO!   ;)

Here is the info.

GEForce 8500GT downloaded and installed the nvidia driver from nvidia.
Hooked to my Toshiba Plasma 42 inch via DVI running 1280 x 720 60 hz (exactly what toshiba requests) dvd is ide. Now as I have said as long as I go to KDE desktop and start xine there and then go back to orbiter everything works fine. But as soon as I stop xine that is running in the kde desktop the video in LinuxMCE goes away. Sound works fine now just have this video hang up. I can also play the DVD using kaffiene and everything works great.


Sounds to me like you installed the driver in a funky way.  I've noticed that if you telinit1 you can run into all sorts of problems.  I use CTRL+ALT+BKSPACE to kill x.  Also ive noticed oddities if you install the driver without doing CTRL+ALT+F2 or whichever function key just not f7.  I haven't had problems playing dvd's in linuxmce yet but it gave me different errors when playing dvd's if i didn't do the above mentioned.  Also if your using AMD64 version that could be the problem as well, for whatever reason that version doesn't like that card very much.  And make sure you let the nvidia driver make an xorg.conf file as well, if you haven't already.

At wsuetholz:  The driver your asking about is for nvidia graphics cards, here is a link with instructions on how to install, make sure you download the right drivers for your card.

Users / Fiire Chief drag issue what worked for me.

So i've been having issues with the fiire chief and dragging.  For a little while doing a quick reload would fix the problem but it would drag still just a tiny bit.  Then i went into pluto and to mcr remote hit the reconfigure box and did a quick reload and it stopped completely.  Now when it happens i can do the same and it will stop completely, i also noticed that any sudden jerks or drops will start the dragging along with long times of the core/hybrid sitting there doing nothing.  Just thought i would share what i learned.


i'm almost certain i saw a sensitivity option for the usbuirt.  Could be wrong, thought i'd say it anyway.
