The bug report got some updates, it's not Dolphin's or KDE's fault, but

mplayer2's, happens whenever it is started from a file manager. Something

with terminal keyboard controls enabled by the file manager, but with

stdin not being connected to anything readable.



It's fixed upstream: http://devel.mplayer2.org/ticket/146

Meanwhile, option -noconsolecontrols also helps.

I am not sure what I am doing wrong, but I can't seem to be able to get

tsocks, or proxychains working.



I set up a socks server virtue of ssh dynamic port forwarding:



$ ssh -D localhost:12465 root@10.10.10.12



Then I run:



$ . tsocks on

$ tsocks sh

LD_PRELOAD="/lib/libtsocks.so"

$ tsocks firefox



or tsocks kmail, or tsocks <anything else>.



The connection is not sent out via the server on 10.10.10.12. *The terminal

that ran tsocks does not reveal anything in terms of a connection taking

place, at least not when I run firefox. *With Chromium things are more

revealing:



$ . tsocks on

$ tsocks sh

LD_PRELOAD="/lib/libtsocks.so"

$ tsocks chromium

[4591:4604:405018909:ERROR:object_proxy.cc(239)] Failed to call

org.freedesktop.NetworkManager was not provided by any .service files

ERROR: ld.so: object '/lib/libtsocks.so' from LD_PRELOAD cannot be

preloaded: ignored.





Exporting like this, also fails to load it for chromium:



$ export LD_PRELOAD=/lib/libtsocks.so

$ tsocks sh

LD_PRELOAD="/lib/libtsocks.so"

$ tsocks chromium

ERROR: ld.so: object '/lib/libtsocks.so' from LD_PRELOAD cannot be

preloaded: ignored.







If I set up socks within the firefox application Advanced/Network

settings, without using tsocks, the connection succeeds through the

ssh tunnel. *Therefore I am confident that the tunnel itself is

working as a socks5 server.





This is what I have in /etc/socks/tsocks.conf



server = 127.0.0.1

server_type = 5

server_port = 12465



Similarly, I get no connection if I use proxychains.



Any idea what I am doing wrong here?

Hi,

That problem drove me nuts for months. I finally discovered by

desperate trial and error that un-setting the 'curl' useflag fixes

it. Finally!

















The requirements are (from the error message):



If USE=ssl then use exactly one of the following:

curl_ssl_axtls

curl_ssl_cyassl

curl_ssl_gnutls

curl_ssl_openssl

curl_ssl_nss

You have the following set for curl (per eix):



curl_ssl_openssl



But the error message also says that this is required:

net-misc/curl[ssl,curl_ssl_nss] by liboauth



You cannot have curl_ssl_nss and curl_ssl_openssl both set for curl as

liboauth complains



So, what you need to do is set



USE="-curl_ssl_openssl curl_ssl_nss" for curl



If you read my post carefully and see how all the bits fit the output

you supplied, it all makes sense. Portage output is not exactly

intuitive but it can be understood.



Or you could unset USE="curl" for liboauth.



I don't know if you'll be willing to switch from curl_ssl just to make

liboauth happy. That's your call.

Sometimes it does that, but that would happen when I play from the command

line, too. And now it even works from Dolphin, when it is set to open

mplayer in a terminal. So this cannot be the problem. And even if it

were, avoiding thumbnails would be a bad workaround only, such operations

should not affect video playback.



Maybe this is somehow related to the other problem I had with mplayer2

only, using 100% CPU when idle, only when started from a file manager.

Did you do env-update && . /etc/profile after entering chroot?

I always thought that setting the right environment variables was the

purpose of that.



I personally an Ubuntu-Live-Thumbdrive, because some time ago (2 years

or so) it wasn't possible to install gentoo with LUKS on a btrfs volume

from the gentoo minimal cd.



The advantage of a live cd (especially for a beginner) is the

possibility to read the manual and google problems while installing.

Another possibility to do that would be an installation via ssh (works

nice too).

This part is fine.



I tried the next part. It didn't work nicely for me.



So what I do now is:



Firefox + FoxyProxy



and now I can set my proxy individually per site. All the internal work

stuff accessed from home goes through the proxy, except the three sites

only viewable from the outside; and everything else bypasses the proxy.



Much better than trying to deal with a global proxy (although foxyproxy

will do that too if that is what you need.



And dispense with all the tsocks stuff.



I see recent KDE now also supports socks. This is a nice new addition

so konqueror can also use it.

Firefox is less of a problem for me because I can set it up to

Yes, but it does not work with the current stable kmail. *The new

KDEPIM is such a nightmare I do not plan moving to it anytime soon.

It screwed up one box that I tried it on and that's enough for me.

Did you have any success with proxychains?



I am not sure if the problem is related to the tsocks LD_PRELOAD error.





I also noticed that when I try to set up a proxy server in Chromium

using the 'under the bonnet' tab, I get this:



"When running Chromium under a supported desktop environment, the

system proxy settings will be used. However, either your system is not

supported or there was a problem while launching your system

configuration.



But you can still configure via the command line. Please see man

chromium-browser for more information on flags and environment

variables."



Trying the command line did not fix it:

That's what made me think that something on my system is not set up

Would like to thank all guys and girls for posting. Even though I post

very little myself your posts are always excellent and there is plenty

to learn from just reading them.



There are things I can do now which I never thought possible. Thanks

Dear all,



It's been quite a while since I noticed this annoying behaviour, but I

could not find any information what might cause this. So the problem is

that at lower volumes my HD-Audio with Conexant becomes very noisy and

this is regardless of the sound system or speakers/headphones I use.



The noise can be described, as high pitched, sandy texture noise

heard during more expressive parts of the music or speech.



I experience this on two Thinkpads (x200s and x200) and it very evident

when I connected external speakers, they produced a lot of this noise,

or maybe I just could hear it better, because of the frequency response

of the speakers.



Does anybody have some similar issues?



My current audio setup:



* ** PulseAudio (but the problem is experienced with ALSA as well)

* ** MPD for music playing

* ** Conexant and other related modules compiled in, power-saving

* * *features enabled.



What I have tried to eliminate the noise:



* ** Various levels of Master,PCM,Headphone channels via Alsamixer

* ** Increase the sample rate in MPD settings.



The noise can be clearly head when I Have the following setting on my

Alsamixer:



* ** Master ~50

* ** PCM 100

* ** Headphone 100



Does anybody has any thoughts on why am I experiencing this?



Thanks a lot,

Ignas A.

I would check the inputs in alsamixer and play around with them. *I

had a problem similar to this for many months and it was due to some

Thanks for replying, I have muted everything, except Headphones, Master,

Speaker and PCM outputs, which *are* necessary to get any sound out of

my machine either with headphones or speakers. Muting speakers when only

headphones were used did not help.

I have a strong expectation that part of what you're hearing is system

electrical noise.



What happens when you set:



* Master -> 100

* Headphone -> 100

* Everything else -> 0



...but you're not playing anything? If you hear anything, then what

you're hearing isn't something you can really deal with without using

an external sound card. Any USB sound card would do fine. (A pair of

'gamer' headphones I bought at Best Buy advertised USB support...and

it turns out they were packaged with a tiny USB<->3.5mm sound

adapter.)



If you don't hear the characteristic sound you're describing, then I'd

expect you're encountering clipping. That's when the logical amplitude

of a signal is greater than the medium holding it, and that happens a

*lot* with integer PCM mixing and amplification.



Unfortunately, there's little to no standardization as to what '0' and

'100' mean between audio chipsets, so the best you can really do here

is crank all of your sliders to maximum, and decrease some of them

until you no longer hear the clipping. (And then remember which

positions on the relevant sliders that corresponds to; it usually

means you're getting no amplification, but also no attenuation.)

If I do not play anything while PCM is at 0 and Master and Headphone are

at 100, then I do not hear anything. But if I start 'playing' something

while still with PCM at 0 (no sound can be heard), then I start hearing

irregular clipping sound.



Is that what you expected?



If I decrease the sound to a level where I stop hearing clipping, then I

can barely hear the music. Although the same headphones play on my

player fine.



And It's a shame, that I indeed hear clipping. Are there any ways to

increase the sound volume without increasing the mixer setting in ALSA?

Would a different sound card help? Is there any way I can solve the

problem without buying new hardware?



Thanks a lot for help,

I.

There are going to be multiple sliders which affect your playback

volume. Without seeing a list of your sliders, I couldn't really guess

which, beyond 'Master', 'PCM' and 'Headphone'. There may be others; my

old Sound Blaster Live had a ton of internal signal processing

sliders, and anything that involves amplification presents that risk.



Each one of those will likely have a threshold where you'll risk

clipping if you go above it. I.e. if PCM and Headphone are at 50, but

Master is above $master_threshold, you may hear clipping. Likewise, if

Master and Headphone are at 50, but PCM is above $pcm_threshold, you

may hear clipping. Similarly, 'Headphone'...



There is probably a combination of settings which works best, and

sounds fine. The trouble, of course, is finding the maximum safe

threshold for each.



Me, I'm fortunate; my Intel-HDA-compatible cards all tend to say

things like "-5dB" or "+20dB" when I'm using the console Alsamixer,

and I've established that as long as they say "0dB", I get the best

signal I can get.



> Would a different sound card help?



Sure; you could use a card with more post-mixer amplification. Or a

card with little to no mixing options. Or an external amplifier.



> Is there any way I can solve the

You might try using something like PulseAudio, which may be doing

internal mixing in the floating point space before it maps back to

16-bit linear PCM. My experiences with PulseAudio have generally been

positive in terms of audio quality. The trickiest part is getting

applications to pipe their audio through it, followed by getting

direct access to the card's mixer settings if I need it. But

"pavucontrol" as a mixer control for PulseAudio works reasonably well

for the majority of circumstances.

Hi Ignas,

* I've never used pulse-audio so I cannot help with that, but with

plain Alsa I had a similar (but not identical) problem recently. In my

case the distorted sound was primarily from my microphone and not, as

I remember it, from playback. Turned out it was a control I hadn't

looked at before called 'Digital' which apparently mixes audio in the

sound chip and for whatever reason was very dirty sounding on the mic

side.



* Note that my audio is not Conextent but rather something called

SupremeFX X-Fi (Creative Labs maybe?) so your results will almost

certainly vary. A little machine info is below.



Good luck,

Mark

[...] (some useful stuff snipped :))



At the moment all the other sliders are at 0. So I do not know, maybe

some other sliders are doing this...



Also, ALSA can show the levels in dBs for my card... but I get sand even

when I'am at gain of ~ (-11,-14)dB on all three sliders (Master, PCM,

Headphone).

I am using Pulse :)... The problem with I have that it changes my PCM

and Headphone levels without asking me... Therefore, if I change the

levels manually on alsamixer and then use Pavucontrol, it just changes

the PCM and headphone or speaker levels to max, which makes the sound

crappy. Otherwise I am quite a happy Pulse user. :)



Is there a way to set the limiting thresholds? Or maybe I am using two

things at the same (ALSA and Pulse) and they are clashing and,

therefore, I can not get good quality sound?

Run alsamixer in a terminal while playing with pavucontrol; you'll see

Alsamixer update live while Pulse tweaks ALSA's mixer settings. It's

useful if you want to get a feel for what exactly Pulse is doing.



On my desktop system, I found that if I had the Pulse master volume

control set to about 70%, Pulse would have my various sliders set to

just about their maximum setting before I started getting clipping

noises.

>

No; the limiting thresholds I was describing are some value that just

happens to be what it is because of the way your sound card mixes

audio together.



> Or maybe I am using two

Pulse is usually OK at managing ALSA in the background; you just have

to do all your volume tweaking through pavucontrol if you intend for

things to not change on you.

Might have been a quirk in my GMail interface, now that I look at it.

Your earlier email looks fine. Something about the list's distribution

pattern changed, so simply clicking "Reply" doesn't work; I now have

to click "Reply All".



Anyway, I'd try taking others' suggestions, too, and possibly poking

whatever PulseAudio support groups exist. They'll be interested in

your circumstance. If it's possible to use Pulse reasonably on your

hardware, they'll want to figure out how to make that less difficult

to do.



Also, Mark noted that there were sliders he hadn't tweaked before when

he was experiencing similar issues, and it's plausible Pulse isn't

poking those at all. Try watching alsamixer to see what Pulse is up

to, and see if Pulse is passing over some of those sliders.

It almost certainly is, tsocks uses LD_PRELOAD to mangle it's magic so

that stuff works. I believe chromium has severe issues with tsocks

because of how it does it's sandboxing, but I honestly don't know how

to get around that.



On a properly setup Gentoo amd64 system, /lib is a link to /lib64, so

the error you get is not a path error, the chromium binary really

cannot (or will not) deal with tsocks.so



I don't see anything wrong with the rest of your config. I honestly

think you are dealing with a chromium feature not a chromium bug.



Have you searched chromium-specific sites to see what others have to

say?

This gentoo stuff is addictive :-)



Must be the personalities around here. I reckon that anyone who sticks

around here and becomes a regular (regardless of their skill level) has

something special going on inside.



Gentoo-ers all have that DIY attitude, as if they would rather not wait

around for someone else to do all their lifting for them.

Sure. But this only _sets_ some environment variables - it does not

unset any other variables you already have defined.



The error is in libtool - it uses a variable without unsetting it first.

I haven't yet, because it is not just Chromium that's not working as it is

supposed to (although it is the most vocal app on the terminal when called

with tsocks). *I haven't yet found an app which will work with tsocks at all.



The fact that proxychains does not work at all (applications completely ignore

it and run outside the tunnel) made me question the sanity of my set up. *Is

there anything other than coincidence that would cause both apps to fail?

I just tried with fotoxx: This is a semi-manual process, but

I liked the resulting image. The joint is less visible

than on brum-2.jpg. It was easy to do an "unbend" after

merging, and therefore the clock and the face on the image

borders stay in the image. This was my first try to do a

panorama in fotoxx, and it took me less than 5 minutes,

much faster than with hugin. If you like I send you the

image to your private mail.

It c~b any more manual than Imagemagick (smile).

That wb useful : no doubt, I could adjust one of them with Imagemagick,

Not a problem with Imagemagick.

Please do & thanks for this info.



Does anyone else have suggestions re pkgs or methods ?

-- it does look as if this rather simple task is fairly challenging,

so others may benefit if it's on record here.



I have emerged Gimp & will look at what it can do soon :

it has 'layers', which look like what is needed.

Rgds,




Hi,



I'm trying out grub2 for the first time on my old laptop. I'm

following the guide at: https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/GRUB2_Quick_Start

which seems easy enough. Basically just emerge it, install and go.



However... two different questions:



When I did this from a chroot, I just got the GRUB> prompt upon

rebooting... no menu or anything. I can manually type "linux

/boot/vmlinuz root=/dev/sda3" and then boot into my system. When I run

grub2-mkconfig from within the chroot, I don't get any "Found linux

image" lines. It does not create /boot/grub2/grub.cfg but rather

grub.cfg.new. So I don't know if it's confused about where /boot is or

what. Is there a trick to installing/updating grub2 config from within

a chroot?



Second, when running grub2-mkconfig from within my working gentoo

system, it fails with "error: failed to get canonical path of

/dev/root." which is apparently because I don't use an initramfs. I

must manually run "ln -s /dev/sda3 /dev/boot" before it will work. Is

there any trick to avoid having to do that every time? For now I have

simply added that to my after-kernel-update script but I'm curious to

know if grub2 knows how to handle this on its own somehow.



Thanks,

Paul

I don't really understand where the chroot comes into this but ... did

you add the "-o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg" part? I forgot that bit a few

times and then couldn't figure out why my changes weren't taking

effect. :-)

Hehe, yeah, I used that command. I'm installing it from chroot for the

first time because gentoo's bootloader was not yet present on the

machine (only Windows7).

They're on my image, but I can't find out how to turn it into a rectangle.

NB there are noticeable curves at the R-hand edge not in the original:

look at the sidewalk curve & at the building pediment.

Any suggestions ? -- otherwise, this looks like the tool to use.

If I recall correctly you need to mount /sys for grub2 to sucessfully

detect devices.

mount -o bind /sys <path-to-gentoo/sys should suffice.

proc and dev should be mounted according to the manual.



If you use a /boot- partition mount it, when you are inside the chroot.

Doing so it worked like a charm for all devices I installed that way

(3 in the last 3 months, if I recall correctly).



With kind regards,



Hinnerk

No way! This list is for life!

O_O


... only joking! :-)


INSTRUCTIONS to "UN-subscribe" (sic.):

1. Go here: http://www.gentoo.org/main/en/lists.xml

2. Read the first few paragraphs and apply what is suggested there for the
digest lists.


Alternatively,

3. Go to your gmail account.

4. Open any message from this list, like this one for example.

5. Click on the drop down menu that says "More" when you hover your mouse over
it (top right corner of the message frame).

6. Select "Show original".

7. Read the headers of the message, very carefully.

8. Do what it suggests next to "List-Unsubscribe:"


Good luck!
