  1. I just use sys-power/hibernate-script. Make sure you have the appropriate methods supported in the kernel and actions allowed in sudoers. Took me a bit of tinkering but got there in the end.
  2. I've been looking at this again and I think I've found the source of the problem. I came across a bug report which suggested disabling gstreamer in about:config, so I did that and sure enough I had no more problems. The only issue is that I want gstreamer support. This is the report, the last post is exactly what happens to me as well: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=935458 I've narrowed it down to gstreamer and the gst-plugins, in particular media-plugins/gst-plugins-ffmpeg. I was using this, along with a couple of others, as an alternative to flash for sites like soundclo
  3. They certainly sound like strange problems. For 2. is it set to floating when you open it (look at the icons before the name in the statusbar) and which tile mode is the workspace set to? I don't use thunar but it sounds like you might be missing a USE flag or dependency for it perhaps?
  4. Thought I would post a follow up to this and mark it as solved. I started to have a look in to the message I was getting when I got a kernel panic, it turned out to be related to scheduling so I tried disabling BFS and sure enough there have been no more issues.
  5. Just ran badblocks on it, it got to a certain stage and the whole computer froze again. Think it must be dead a dead drive. Hopefully the other was just a coincidence.
  6. I suppose that could account for one of the drives (the original one that keeps giving me this problem) but the other was a stick I plugged directly in to the port. Unless there are any other suggestions I guess I'll just have to bite the bullet and buy a new drive. Thanks again for the help.
  7. This is a laptop so would it be all the ports if this were the case? I tried disabling ehci in the usb section for the kernel but I would only achieve 1 mbps transfer rate like that, unless that's not what you mean? I'm trying now with a different port and not copying usb>usb, rather usb>internal drive then internal drive>usb. Don't know if it will make a difference and it's a much longer process considering how much I have to transfer.
  8. I had a problem with one USB drive where suddenly I was getting a I/O error when trying to delete or do anything with a certain file. I ended up formatting it but the problem kept recurring so I just assumed that the drive was dying. I've just had the same thing happen to a second drive now so I'm suspicious. Initially both drives had ntfs. I suspected perhaps it is just a bug in that so I am now trying with ext4 but I am still having problems. I tried to copy some files from one USB drive to another and the whole system froze and had to be forced off (no tty even). I am seeing this in the
  9. Futex is enabled in my kernel, not sure what else I should be looking at.
  10. It looks like it might be futex - http://sprunge.us/LCRD What does that mean?
  11. I did rebuild openssl a few days ago as there was an update that came through but before that the last time was October. I know I definitely had this problem before the rebuild a few days ago. That's interesting what they say in that link, I don't have access to do anything in the router I am currently using but should be using another in the next couple of weeks so I'll see if that changes anything. It's just strange that it does this only with the -bin and not the compiled version though. Thanks for the help, I really appreciate it.
  12. I don't have it set to sync, no. Sorry, I meant if I open the browser and open funtoo.org, for example, then close the browser it doesn't hang. If I open the browser and then open gmail.com (web interface), then close the browser it hangs. I noticed also that the spinner in the tab never stops on gmail.com as well and says "read ssl.gstatic.com" on the bottom left. This is the output of the terminal when running firefox-bin and accessing gmail: (process:26089): GLib-CRITICAL **: g_slice_set_config: assertion 'sys_page_size == 0' failed (process:26089): GLib-CRITICAL **: g_slice_
  13. When I use firefox-bin and close the program it hangs in the background and doesn't completely close, the gui disappears as you would expect but the process still runs. I don't get this with firefox that I compiled. It happens with a new profile and in safe mode with no plugins/addons. I don't know how to troubleshoot this, I don't see anything different in the terminal from one or the other (-bin or compiled). I think it is related to gmail though, it doesn't always hang but it seems that if I have gmail open the firefox process hangs.
  14. I like it too, thanks for the addition.
  15. I have no idea on the technical aspects but if emerge can be made quicker then it can only be a good thing as far as I'm concerned.
  16. Looks like I've finally solved this, I downloaded the 64 bit demo of renoise and it worked in that too. Seems that the ebuild I used for renoise doesn't work quite right.
  17. I am trying to use Windows vsts in Renoise (native linux version) through Wine, using the airwave vst bridge. If I use 32 bit version of Renoise everything works perfectly but with the 64 bit version it doesn't work at all, the plugins cannot be loaded in Renoise. I have managed to get someone else to try to replicate the problem and they could not, it seems renoise is perfectly capable to load these plugins on other systems. So this has lead me to believe I am missing something on my system because 32 bit works and 64 bit doesn't. This is my wine version: 1.7.29^t{tbz2}(X alsa fontc
  18. I had the same problem with my laptop with a previous distro, I found a few mentions about it on the arch forum and it appeared to be a bug in something. I can't remember the solution, if there was one, now I'm afraid. I used to have to plug the headphones back in and pull them out again and it would work magically.
  19. Who would I contact about this failing? I assume it's not a upstream linuxsampler issue because other distros use this version, seems that it is only a problem in gen/funtoo.
  20. This is another ebuild from the pro-audio overlay that doesn't build. I know a lot of people have had trouble with this one but I have yet to see any proper solution. The reason this is an important version is that the svn version allows .sfz and .sf2 files to be loaded where as the version in the gentoo/funtoo tree does not. I have tried contacting the maintainer of the overlay and have not received any response. This is the ebuild it is using - http://gpo.zugaina.org/AJAX/Ebuild/2904551/View This is the emerge log - http://sprunge.us/eVXS This is emerge --info http://sprunge.us/a
  21. Some fine trolling in this thread.
  22. My computer boots faster with openrc than it ever did with systemd. Somehow I get the feeling you want a 46 page flame debate though.
  23. I compiled libav and installed it to /usr/local and bitwig is working now. Hopefully it won't cause problems with portage in the future but at the moment all is well. Thanks for the help again.
  24. Yeah I was trying to cover all my bases really, I wasn't sure where the best place would be to get help. That's a great idea paddymac, I didn't think of trying that for fear of messing up my system. I just tried it though and it does work perfectly. You're correct, both can't co-exist, at least not with portage. So I'm not sure where to go from here, I have some packages that rely on ffmpeg so I suppose I need to look if they can use libav instead. Perhaps it would be just easier to convert all my samples to .wav but I would prefer not to do that really. The suggestion in the kvr thr
  25. I'm trying to give Bitwig-studio a try but I'm running in to lots of problems getting it to work with flac files (wav files work but it seems that it converts flacs to wav in a temp directory). When running from the terminal it says it cannot find avprobe so I symlinked that with ffprobe. Then it said that it can't find avconv so I symlinked that with iconv. Now I am getting the following when I try to open a flac file: apache.commons.vfs2.FileNotFoundException: Could not read from "file:///home/alex/.BitwigStudio/cache/samples/1680B2374B43B71396BEAA1DD194197B/playback-temp.wav" becaus
