On a separate hard drive. I'm done resizing NTFS. The last time I did that (last month), the live-CD ran out of ram when resizing and my bytes went AWOL.

post #3883 of 7733



just going to drop this here. the only thing is I want to make conkey more visable, and yet I don't want to use compositing....grr...anyway, wallpaper was passed to me via arch forums and was done by some guy an DA. I think its pretty good

I think I'm just about satisfied with the setup. pretty much everything is what I want (though the gtk themes are being a little weird, one of them is coloured correctly, and the other one has an inverted color for one single element, I'm working on hunting down why, its the same in the config...)

I'm using pcmanfm for my file manager, decided to use stalonetray for my system tray (bottom right, above the cairo-dock) feh for wallpaper cycling, cmus for music, conky for information, compiz-standalone for the window manager, emerald for the decorator, urxvt for my terminal, and gmrun for my run dialog/whatever you wanna call it (I tried to get urxvt to run single-lined and such, but for whatever reason it would never accept focus for input, or display any text... apparently some kind of incompatibility on Compiz's part, oh well.) SciTE is my text editor of choice, though I do find myself using nano quite a bit with my tabbed urxvt's, its just easier to switch tabs with the keyboard.

Gigantic Mega-ARGH

So I was tinkering around with my ffmpeg script and moving some files around (shown in the screenshot above, I was moving things from my NAS Array to my internal storage for local use; when I noticed my NTFS-3g was using quite a bit too much CPU; a little bit of investigation later and I realized this was due to my negligence on that ntfs partition, I've never once booted into Windows in the past year to run chkdsk on it to make sure the partition is healthy, and low and behold - it wasn't. Long story short, I started moving data back off the partition, and somehow (probably a corrupt node) I managed to erase my home directory (no literally, it wasn't even sudo mv or anything, I used a gui to cut + paste the files...) which has sent this install into a dismal abyss of half-broken-half-working applications and features.
Back to square one... Do I really want compiz-standalone install or not, I didn't even get enough time to decide yet frown.gif
Good news, the partition is getting formatted to ext3 and all of the data was backed up (aside from new scripts I just added for this particular install) and I get more install practice with the new non-aif media... Which I'm starting to grow to like. It seemed like a PITA at first, but its actually probably easier than the AIF...

heh, I feel you there, I just went through an installathon (ubuntu minimal, tried Fedora, Tried crunchbang linux... Only to find out that none so far wants to make everything work like I need anymore... So I guess i'll stick with windows until they start fixing their own breakage...
Ubuntu fail: Compile my favorite program
Fedora 18 fail: Install media does not fit on usb (4.1GB iso), Live media does not support my video card properly (nouveau fails and loops error messages before graphical login, even though there's framebuffer console)
#! fail: Impossible to run skype at all, be it packaged or static. Wheezy broke hell loose in the libraries... Since it is my main messaging program, this is a no-no. And nope, pidgin-skype is not a viable alternative for me.

So... well, I guess I'll just sigh and wait.

Definitely need an EXT4 or BTRFS driver for windows so we can avoid having to deal with NTFS altogether outside of windows. Now I'm fearing touching any of my NTFS drives. I don't get it...why is NTFS so "bad"? Or is it because we're accessing it through a non-MS method?

NTFS is old and broken.

As to accessing through Windows, this is why I always set up all my files to be on my file server and set up a samba share. Doesn't matter what filesystem you use that way, as Windows won't care.

Don't have money for a rig to be a file server. Maybe VMing windows is at hand for me. How's windows with reading ext2/3 through the addon driver? Might just change all my externals over to that.

Ext2 and 3 work for read/write, Ext4 works for read but not write, but ext4 drives seem to bug out with the Ext2Fsd driver lately, at least on my gf's netbook don't have a way to test anything else.

And look at craigslist for companies going out of business, a lot will just throw out computers. And you can salvage a motherboard/cpu from them easily tongue.gif Home file servers don't need to be big and expensive. I built mine for under $200 ( before hard drives ) with ease. Could of gone cheap and went amd too, and it would of only cost about $80-$100.
