Recent VDPAU broken?

Anyone else having issues with VDPAU lately (within the last week or so)? All my video players suddenly quit working (mplayer, for instance, crashes with an “interrupted by signal 11 in module: decode_video” error, but works with gl, xv, x11, etc. vo drivers). I’ve tried reinstalling everything I can think of, to no avail.

Using amdgpu 19.20 on a Vega 56, drivers via the oibaf PPA.

Is it just me? I haven’t seen posts from others with similar issues.

ubuntu not updating neither installing anything (Package system is broken)

Check if you are using third party repositories. If so disable them, since they are a common source of problems. Furthermore run the following command in a Terminal: apt-get install -f Transaction failed: The package system is broken The following packages have unmet dependencies:

How can I install Ubuntu on a HP Pavillion DM1 with broken USB ports?

I was recently given an old computer (HP Pavilon Dm1 – I think it’s about 6 years old). All 3 USB ports on the computer are broken. So I have to install Ubuntu through Internet network adapter boot, but I’m a little lost how to do that. I was planning to install Ubuntu 19.04 to this old computer on SSD drive.

Remove broken package without apt or dpkg

How could I remove a package – a kernel one to make things more complicated – without using dpkg or apt? (they does not work)

During updating the Linux Mint on my father’s PC I experienced an issue with the kernel. According to dpkg -l there are a package with iF status and some it iU and rc status. linux-headers, linux-image, linux-generic and linux-headers-generic have iF, it, iU and iU status.

All the solutions what I have found recommends dpkg --configure -a, but it does not work in my case: it starts to rebuild the linux-image package, but after a few seconds the make command is run, the screen switches to black and the computer does not react to anything (Ctrl+Alt+Del or Ctrl+Alt-F1 etc.)

I am able to boot into an older kernel in grub.

Game works perfectly in unity editor but is broken when built (android) [on hold]

So I have 21 scenes, 1 menu and 20 levels. All of this works perfectly in the editor, but when I built it to my android, it breaks completely. When built, the menu works fine, however when I load the first level, I get a black screen and only the ui shows. Also, one button in the gui is supposed to remove a certain part of the gui which doesnt happen. I also have a timer which just keeps adding numbers onto itself, rather than redraw it (Like if you just keep drawing 1,2,3,4 without erasing the previous ones).

On build, I get no errors and only a “Build completed with a result of ‘Succeeded'”. I have previously built games onto my phone without problems, but never with multiple scenes like this one has. I should also mention that all my levels have 3 canvases (which are fully functional in the editor).

Edit: It’s also broken if I start it directly into level1

Appreciate any suggestions to solve this.

Netatalk broken on 18.04LTS?

I recently upgraded my 14.04LTS system to 18.04LTS. Now I can’t get appletalk to work. I’ve been using Netatalk with the same configuration files for a very long time. After upgrading to 18.04 I can no longer start atalkd. When I try to start atalkd I get

atalkd[7429]: setifaddr: eth0 (1-65534): Invalid argument. try specifying a smaller net range. kernel: [306678.802055] Too many routes/iface.

Changing the -net value in atalkd.conf has no effect.

My original atalkd.conf file consists of a single line:
eth0 -phase 2 -net 0-65534 -addr 65280.163

I’ve tried
eth0 -net 9461-9471
as well as just
with exactly the same result. I don’t know where the 1-65534 is coming from.

According to synaptic the latest version available from the Ubuntu repo is 2.2.6

Can you continue the movement of a Bonus Action Dash granted by Expeditious Retreat if your Concentration is broken mid-move?

The spell Expeditious Retreat requires concentration, and reads:

When you cast this spell, and then as a bonus action on each of your turns until the spell ends, you can take the Dash action.

Assume that a character has used all of their normal movement, and that character starts the Bonus Action Dash and uses some but not all of the movement granted by this Dash. If concentration is lost at that point (either due to an opportunity attack/readied action or the casting of another concentration spell) is that character permitted to continue moving the remainder of their dash distance?

GtkProgressBar pulsing broken in Ubuntu 18.04?

I have already asked this question on Stack Overflow and have not received a response, so I figured I would try my luck here instead: I have a GTK application that depends on pulsing a GtkProgressBar to notify the user that the program is running. This action works perfectly on Ubuntu 16.04 (GTK version 3.20.8) but I am noticing that pulsing does not work correctly – and quickly fails altogether – on Ubuntu 18.04 (GTK version 3.22.30). I am thinking that this is a bug in GTK itself, but I can’t seem to find any information anywhere, and if it is indeed a bug, it seems like a big one. I was hoping to get some clarification from the community. The minimal example C code is as follows:

#include <gtk/gtk.h> #include <gdk/gdk.h> #include <glib.h> #include <glib/gprintf.h>  GtkBuilder* builder; gboolean CONTINUE_PULSING = TRUE; guint pulsing;                      // The ID returned by g_timeout_add  gboolean pulse_progress_bar(__attribute__((unused)) gpointer user_data) {   GtkProgressBar * pbar = GTK_PROGRESS_BAR(gtk_builder_get_object(builder, "pbar"));   gtk_progress_bar_set_pulse_step(GTK_PROGRESS_BAR(pbar), 0.1); // Sets the fraction of total progress bar length to move   gtk_progress_bar_pulse(GTK_PROGRESS_BAR(pbar));    return CONTINUE_PULSING; }  void run_press_event(__attribute__((unused)) GtkWidget * widget, __attribute__((unused)) GdkEventButton * event, __attribute__((unused)) gpointer user_data) {   // Start the progress bar going   GtkProgressBar * pbar = GTK_PROGRESS_BAR(gtk_builder_get_object(builder, "pbar"));    // g_timeout_add will call pulse_progress_bar every 100ms (to keep it moving)   pulsing = g_timeout_add(100, pulse_progress_bar, GTK_PROGRESS_BAR(pbar)); }  void stop_press_event(__attribute__((unused)) GtkWidget * widget, __attribute__((unused)) GdkEventButton * event) {   // Stop the progress bar going   g_source_remove(pulsing); }  void main_window_destroy(__attribute__((unused)) GtkWidget *widget, __attribute__((unused)) gpointer data) {   gtk_main_quit (); }  int main(int argc, char *argv[]) {   GtkWidget * window ;   GError * err = NULL ;    gtk_init(&argc, &argv);    builder = gtk_builder_new();    gtk_builder_add_from_file(builder, "", &err);    if (err != NULL)   {     fprintf(stderr, "Unable to read glade file: %s\n", err -> message);     g_error_free(err);      return 1;   }    window = GTK_WIDGET(gtk_builder_get_object(builder, "window_main"));    gtk_builder_connect_signals(builder, builder);    gtk_widget_show_all(window);    gtk_main();    return 0; } 

And the glade file XML definition to be read into GtkBuilder is:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!-- Generated with glade 3.20.0 --> <interface>   <requires lib="gtk+" version="3.20"/>   <object class="GtkWindow" id="window_main">     <property name="can_focus">False</property>     <property name="window_position">center-always</property>     <signal name="destroy" handler="main_window_destroy" swapped="no"/>     <child>       <object class="GtkBox">         <property name="visible">True</property>         <property name="can_focus">False</property>         <property name="orientation">vertical</property>         <child>           <object class="GtkProgressBar" id="pbar">             <property name="visible">True</property>             <property name="can_focus">False</property>             <property name="fraction">0.10000000000000001</property>           </object>           <packing>             <property name="expand">False</property>             <property name="fill">True</property>             <property name="position">0</property>           </packing>         </child>         <child>           <object class="GtkButton" id="run_button">             <property name="label" translatable="yes">RUN</property>             <property name="visible">True</property>             <property name="can_focus">True</property>             <property name="receives_default">True</property>             <signal name="clicked" handler="run_press_event" swapped="no"/>           </object>           <packing>             <property name="expand">False</property>             <property name="fill">True</property>             <property name="position">1</property>           </packing>         </child>         <child>           <object class="GtkButton" id="stop_button">             <property name="label" translatable="yes">STOP</property>             <property name="visible">True</property>             <property name="can_focus">True</property>             <property name="receives_default">True</property>             <signal name="clicked" handler="stop_press_event" swapped="no"/>           </object>           <packing>             <property name="expand">False</property>             <property name="fill">True</property>             <property name="position">2</property>           </packing>         </child>       </object>     </child>   </object> </interface> 

Name the C file “pbar.c” and the glade file “”, then compile using:

gcc -Wall -Wextra -o pbar pbar.c $  (pkg-config gtk+-3.0 --cflags --libs) -rdynamic -lm 

If you are on Ubuntu 16.04 you will notice that the pulse on the progress bar is consistent and does not decay by removing the source ID (i.e. hitting the stop button), but on Ubuntu 18.04 the progress bar starts off fine, but as soon as the source ID is removed, and the pulsing is started again, the pulsing becomes choppy and starts to decay, to the point that several combinations of RUN/STOP cause the progress bar to fail to pulse at all. I cannot determine the cause of this, and it’s a big problem for porting my GTK application over to Ubuntu 18.04. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Broken pipe while using SSH

One of my server computer shows broken pipe message while I using SSH after 10 minutes even though I execute simulation program programmed with python3.5.

I did everything, 1)edit sshd_config and ssh_config file, 2)ignore power-save mode, 3)re-install ubuntu 16.04 4)use tmux for simulation.

In addition, while after the disconnection between the server and local client and I tried tmux attach command but it does not work.

The most weird thing is only the one server shows this symptom. Other server comes works well without broken pipe message.

What should I do???
