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.
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.
This is the most fun ive had fiddling with an OS since my CentOS VPS. Arch is the best.
Im wanting to setup a local web server and im having trouble picking what web server to go with. Im stuck between Lighttpd, Nigix and Cherokee. Perhaps there are other light web servers that I should consider using?
Tried installing Arch on a VM, all goes great except I have no internet connection. I give up...

I've got it all sorted now, thank you for helping though.
Now to get the rest of it set up. WOO HOO!
How do I get rid of the sidebar in Ubuntu? Gnome has it too D: Where does it come from? Is it a Unity thing? I'd love to have an interface that allows me to make my own little start menus where I can add things...
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).
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.
Oh, and it's a MUST that most packages are top-notch almost bleeding edge.
Just sit down, learn Arch and install Xfce.
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
Wow, problems already.
UNETBOOTIN can't recognize my USB? It does not show ANY drives.
Oh wow, no FAT32.
Just getting my other USB.
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?
Completely redoing my ubuntu box into a minimal debian + awesome box. I grew tired of how much crap ubuntu came preinstalled with and I really want to make the jump to only using awesome 24/7.
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...
-snip- fixed, just forgot to edit the grub file, silly me
I kind of like Unity now.
It lacks a lot of the features that I've grown used to in GNOME Shell, but I'll give it a try.
Fuck it, I'll just go back to ubuntu and strip it down than add awesome. I don't feel like spending time tinkering with my wireless drivers and video drivers.
