If I post something erroneous please tell me so I can fix it and learn from the error.

I'm currently developing a voxel game called Mosstest in Java as a learning exercise.

I can be contacted by email at obsessivefoss@gmail.com, if one is interested in my work. Please do not email asking for help.

comment Why is almost everything that I am typing underlined?
What program is this in? What language is the program set to spellcheck in? What spellings does it suggest?

comment Ubuntu on AMD or Intel, does it makes a difference?
Are other details such as GPUs/drivers, RAM capacity, etc the same?

comment Downgrade Java 1.7 to Java 1.5
One of Oracle's primary goals in moving forward was complete backward-compatibility, so I'd assume that if 1.7 doesn't work but 1.5 does, then there is a deeper problem.

It is working stably now. Bitrate is forced to 18M auto, twpower 17, retry long and retry short are both 31 (as opposed to 21). Thanks!

Long and short retries seem to help greatly, I'll see how stable it is and report back. Can you tell me what the number 21 means? Is it just the number of retries?

How would this be related? I can't send any 802.11 frames, at a lower level than IP addressing.

Windows: Virtually endlessly (as in, hours of un-interrupted communication) vs a few seconds on Ubuntu. Reconnect gives a few more seconds. I'll try the clean disconnect later tomorrow as it is fairly late in my timezone

I've tried values as low as 64 (powers of 2), to no avail.

No, unfortunately the issue remains (the disconnect happens equally quickly). Can't let the bounty go to waste, though, so I'll award it if no other answers come in that work

Thanks, I'll try as much of it as I can (It is illegal to transmit above 20dBi in the US without licenses that I do not have)

Alfa AWUS036H, which is a USB card fairly commonly used with Linux.

Can you explain what fixes, if any, exist in the newest version over rtl8187 in trusty repos? Edit: That package doesn't build for me.

To whomever voted to close this as a bug report, what justification do you have for same? I'm not sure if the issue is on my side, and if it is not, I'd appreciate being told that directly.

comment How can I convert an ext4 partition to btrfs (or other file systems) without losing data?
@XavierT. I personally do not know this. It looks from a new version of the source that fstab would need to be modified and a valid FS driver existent at boot.

@bzero Yes, so long as the disk has at least 1 MB free.
