    I'm wondering this too.
    I found it out. The configure script shows that if you have a broken alias for ls, it will fail that test.

    Uh, I think I have a little problem with youtube videos in fullscreen mode. They're laggy as hell, no matter what quality. In normal mode however they're fine.

    ls displays the stuff in a directory, if you have an alias for ls that doesn't work, it won't show the directory contents properly and thus makes the build environment insane.

    Flash is shit in general. You can try using the html5 version: http://www.youtube.com/html5

    There's also a program for linux called youtube-viewer that uses MPlayer to watch the videos (so there's no lag due to flash). It also has other capabilities such as managing subscriptions, searching, playlists, etc.

    I'm really enjoying Archbang. I've always wanted to try Arch but never really got around to it due to either network complications or laziness - Archbang is nice because it gives you a nice foundation to work with after you've installed it.

    Just had a kernel update mess up my initramfs. Apparently my sata hard drive is now being handled by the scsi module and I didn't have scsi support enabled.

    Odd, but it appears to have fixed the problem with my sata controller crashing every 5 min and restarting itself.

    Nearly everything I've compiled, I see this:
    Code:
    checking whether build environment is sane... yes
    It makes me wonder how do you manage to get a non-sane build environment?
    Non-sane means broken ls (probably an alias for ls or something).

    Have you tried the Arch wiki? Every problem ive had with Arch has being solved by simply looking up the problem on their wiki or looking over the instructions on the wiki again. I had a problem with my internet connection and it was solved by visiting their wiki.

    Is it even possible to do terminal copy+paste (highlight+mouse3) with links? It's got to be the worst design flaw ever (google doesn't help because it thinks I'm talking about copy+paste a link in a web browser).

    How old was the kernel you were updating from? I'm pretty sure that happened a couple years ago.

    It was 3.3.4 -> 3.3.6, but I think it's a change in mkinitcpio and not related to the kernel update.

    I reverted to see if I could find out what happened and found the exact same modules are loaded in both versions, but 3.3.6 refuses to boot without the scsi hook.

    Alright, so is there any rolling release distribution like Arch Linux or Sabayon, but with a DE version (such as XFCE or GNOME)?
    I've been looking for a while (perhaps in the wrong places) and couldn't really find anything.

    Edited:

    Oh, and it's a MUST that most packages are top-notch almost bleeding edge.

    I know Arch. it just doesn't install very well on my computer (it installs fine, but the legacy grub thing doesn't work at all. I've tried several times to configure it, and even syslinux works better for me. So a grub2 distro would be great!)

    There we go, Fedora 16 with XFCE spin loading on UNETBOOTIN.
    Oh gawd can't wait. Oh, of course I will upgrade when a XFCE spin for 17 comes out. <3

    Edited:

    Wow, problems already.
    UNETBOOTIN can't recognize my USB? It does not show ANY drives.
    Help?


    Edited:

    Oh wow, no FAT32.
    Just getting my other USB.

    I never actually saw this. Amazing. I'll have to try this out! Doing a backup of my Ubuntu installation now (manually, it's taking a while to tar everything up) and I'll report back in a few hours.

    Sorry if this is a stupid question, but anyone want to help me out? After building a new computer, I'm having problems setting up dual-boot with Fedora / Windows. On my last computer I was able to setup Windows / Arch and Windows / Fedora, but here it seems to be working incorrectly (or I'm doing something wrong?) First I install Windows and leave around 50 gigs of unallocated space for Linux, then I install either Arch or Fedora into the unallocated space with GRUB. However, afterwards it can't find Windows or boot to it. My computer has UEFI if it matters?

    Make sure you installed it to the MBR, too..

    My guess is that GRUB either didn't detect windows or doesn't have a menu entry for it. IDK what version of GRUB fedora uses, but arch uses GRUB 1 by default. You should be able to add an entry manually.

    Does UEFI have an effect on how I should add the entry? I'm pretty sure that I didn't install Windows using GPT (I think the hard drive is partitioned with an MBR), but I'm not 100% sure. Can you help me out with figuring out how to install both without screwing everything up?

    Most UEFI systems have a BIOS legacy mode. My guess it is what it's using to load GRUB. I'm not sure if you need anything special. You could try to setup the entry like you would with a normal BIOS and see what happens. Worse case, Windows still doesn't boot...

    It lacks a lot of the features that I've grown used to in GNOME Shell, but I'll give it a try.
