comment How do I compile sndpeek on the latest ubuntu?
I get an alsa error (the other make methods give errors, too). I'm on 12.10 now. $ make linux-alsa make -f makefile.alsa make[1]: Entering directory /home/username/src/sndpeek-1.3/src/sndpeek' gcc -D__LINUX_ALSA__ -D__LITTLE_ENDIAN__ -I../marsyas/ -O3 -c RtAudio.cpp RtAudio.cpp:3194:28: fatal error: alsa/asoundlib.h: No such file or directory compilation terminated. make[1]: *** [RtAudio.o] Error 1 make[1]: Leaving directory /home/jbaber/src/sndpeek-1.3/src/sndpeek' make: [linux-alsa] Error 2 (ignored) $

comment Smallest smb.conf to samba-share a directory without a password for whole LAN
So it can be completely understood and grown from. Probably because of it's great power, most samba tutorials start with a giant refined config and talk through it line-by-line, which is not a fun way to learn for 50% of users.

Sorry about that, @searchfgold6789. I've added what lspci says.

I haven't been able to get to this. When I have time to try, I'll confirm and upvote, don't worry!

comment How do I rip a dvd including menus and extras to a menu driven divx file (or any lossy format that supports menus)?
k9copy is definitely the way to go. Make a much smaller ISO of your DVD. Then to watch later, just mount the ISO and point your favorite DVD player at it.

I started my own on github, but it looks like you found better answers!

comment How do I make Ubuntu go past the splash screen?
I tried adding the various incantations from the Bug link, but they didn't work. Where would I tell my machine to 'sleep 2'?

Okay, I've asked about the general freeze.

comment How do I handle “Firmware file X not found” stopping bootup?
I probably am using LightDM if that's the default. I haven't kept up with all of ubuntu's "innovations" since I don't use Gnome/KDE, so I never see them. I'll pastebin that stuff, but, as @turbo points out below, I should really open up another question since the b43 wireless problem wasn't the cause of the machine not booting.

comment How do I handle “Firmware file X not found” stopping bootup?
The advice at wireless.kernel.org to apt-get install firmware-b43-installer seemed to get rid of the b43 error. But my machine is still hanging at the splash screen. Thank you for helping me fix that error! If nobody can get me past that, I guess you get the bounty and I'll set up another question asking "How do I get past the splash screen?"

comment How do I make my machine stop freezing during startup?
@Eliah Kagan Is there a link to this discussion? Since I'm able to ssh into the machine and mostly use it headless, I'm surviving without any help, but what if somebody else finds this question?

comment How do I make the headphone jack on my desktop mac work?
Before blindly doing that, I looked at the end of /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf and am reminded that I had to do something like this before to get sound working at all To follow your answer, should I comment out the other snd-hda-intel line?

@Steve Kroon The sound continues to come out of the computer as if I hadn't done anything.

@reverendj1 Yes, there is a red light coming out of the jack, now that you mention it. How would I go about changing this?

I did get it to copy one title, but it didn't preserve menus :(

comment How do I make dvd::rip not freeze halfway through a DVD?
oneiric Also, I'm pretty sure I've done enough de-css stuff to allow me to rip my encrypted dvds.

The name of the app I'm using is dvdrip. Is dvd::rip something different?

If it gives you menus, I owe you the bounty. I've just got to wrangle my version to make sure it works. (I think you'll get 25 points of bounty anyway since you've got the highest rated answer)

I tried installing it and ripping a sample DVD to see if it would give me menus, but it stuck at 30 minutes
