Re: What gstreamer plug in needed? [SOLVED]

This appears to be a player software problem. I added the gstreamer ogg, vorbis, and aac plugins in addition to the gstreamer 1 versions. I can now play somafm and HBR1 streams on Firefox and Rythymbox. On Exaile, I can now play the HBR1 streams, but not somafm, my other online favorite. On that pla...

What gstreamer plug in needed? [SOLVED]

I know, it's weird music, but I like to listen to it now and then. I've added HBR1 - Dream Factory to both Goggles and Exaile. The station has a choice of either AAC+ or Oggvorbis encoding. I've installed the gstreamer "bad" plugin among others, but in both cases, the players give me an error messag...

Re: 11.1 Alpha Video Driver?

I uninstalled nv, and then installed nvidia-driver-340, nvidia-settings, and nvidia-xconfig. /boot/loader.conf did not contain: "nvidia_load=YES" so that remained the same. However, I did have to open as root /etc/rc.conf and add: kld_list="nvidia" I then ran as root: nvidia-xconfig rebooted, and vo...

My BSD machine is a home built system using a ten-year-old Asus M2N-MX mobo, a socket AM2 Athlon 64 processor, 250GB/2GB, an nVidia GeForce 210 video card, GBD 10.3, and MATE. This afternoon, I found a leftover 2 GB DDR2 stick in my RAM box, and put it in the system. Although System Monitor shows it...

11.1 Alpha Video Driver?

I am running an nVidia GeForce 210 video card on my BSD system. My GBD 10.3 install showed considerable video response delay and tearing with the default video driver (mesa?), all of which cleared up by installing the nVidia 340 driver. My GBD 11.1 install did not; it was much smoother and quicker, ...

Mount a HD from the live DVD? [SOLVED]

Is there a way to mount and edit files on a HD from the GBD live DVD? I was playing with slim and now cannot boot the system, even into text mode. I know what I did, and can reverse it, if only I had Caja or command line access to the HD. The live DVD won't let me mount the HD.
