  1. the only thing i know of is in realtek settings is a loudness equalization which made voices quite when unchecked and voices normal when checked. it is currently checked and i have tried it both ways....
  2. I have not updated any drivers recently, however i believe windows ran an update recently since i cam home and my computer had rebooted but i dont recall if that was yesterday or the day before. here is my output from vlc: after having this problem i reinstalled my realtek driver and tried again but still nothing, any other suggestions? BTW, i do NOT like windows, however i use it for my gaming, i prefer linux.
  3. Hey all, so im on my built gaming desktop, i have a mobo with integrated sound card. its realtek. I also have a corsair gaming 5.1 speaker system. i have always been able to watch movies in WMP no problem. a couple days ago however, i threw gran torino in, and it started playing, i could hear everything, except when the people started talking. it was extremely quiet. i could hear a faint whisper to tell that they were still talking, but its really bad. i checked realtek sound settings and nothing had changed, i plugged in my headphones to the front of my pc, and i could hear the voices just
  4. I will agree that the nmap book is amazing! i bought it and have not finished or hardly started it yet as im finishing my A+ book and a security book, but i just kinda read a few pages and looked through the contents and it looks like it will be an amazing book with lots of information!
  5. I said in wordpress post i thought it had something to do with the loopback! Awesome thank you guys so much! really helpful and good to know, i had edited it once before when searching the problem but i wasnt adding the correct line to the file which is why it never worked a couple months back! i really appreciate all the help on here!
  6. Actually, that seemed to resolve it completely! i just went to my site with www.kkuhns.com after editing the file and it came up, as well as went to www.kkuhns.com/forum and it worked flawlessly! one more question i guess then, how do i fix this on a windows machine as i have a W7 desktop for gaming and internet browsing as well as my laptop. my family's computers all run windows as well. is there maybe a way to set this standard for all clients on my network through my modem/router?
  7. I havent changed anything yet. sometimes it will only load html sometimes it times out. either way though i never get the actual site to load. it did this same thing with my blog i tried. also can you elaborate on dropping my FQDN into my host's file? i have added server name and server alias to my sites available file under /etc/apache2/sites-available if thats what you are referring to.
  8. Yeah sorry if that was a bit hard to follow ill try to explain it better. On my personal home network im running a server and a website. i have a static IP from my ISP.and im using a FQDN from domain.com to point kkuhns.com to my web server. anyone outside my network can reach my server by going to kkuhns.com but from inside my network, i cannot reach my server by going to kkuhns.com as it times out. i can reach my website on my server by pointing to its internal IP address of and i can navigate to any of the other directories, download links or pages by using ra
  9. Okay, i have what seems to be an awkward problem that doesnt seem to show up much in google. people with something similar but not quite the same.... i have a static IP from my ISP and a website i built, basic one, never put time into adding much styling as i started working on other things... site is wwww.kkuhns.com the server is at my house on a second desktop i have. so its located internally on my network. i tried to put a blog on my site using wordpress and textpattern. both of which were a success. except one problem. from withing my network, i can navigate to my site by entering my
  10. I haven never even looked at server edition of windows but i can tell you it would be pointless for you to install it on there, and no, i dont think all your normal app's would work on it. also, if as a student you can get the OS for so cheap, why not just by win 7 64 bit?
  11. See thats my problem to. is that i can know what i want done, and i can learn languages pretty well, i just dont know where to go to get a list of all the commands, or where to see the description of the kinds of commands. i did some programming for my robotics team and i got some pneumatics solenoids working but it wasnt until i understood what i could type in that i was able to make a function.....
  12. Well, That worked. I know iceweasel is supposed to be exactly like firefox, but i wasnt sure if the plugins folder it uses was different possible. i think firefox comes with it already. moving the .so file in even on firefox has only worked half the time for me anyway. im glad that its done now. thank you! I really appreciate all the help i get on these forums. you guys are awesome!
  13. Forgot to mention my system is 64 bit. I read that using one of those ubuntu .deb or .apt can cause instability when used on debian which i thought was weird. it was said you also wouldnt get updates or something? also, the .tar.gz gives you the .so file and iceweasel doesnt have a /plugin folder. the closest thing it has is a /searchplugins folder.
  14. there is a way to enable root in ubuntu. just search it cause i dont remember it off hand. also, sudo isnt that long, plus if you forget to put it just type sudo !! and it will use sudo on the last command.
  15. Well, i have been searching for about an hour now and havent come up with the correct answer. i cant get flashplayer to work with iceweasel. i just installed the newest version of debian and was liking it. from what i can tell from my searching they take the repositories for flashplayer out because its closed source so its not "secure". i have tried adding some multimedia repository, using apt-get flashplugin-nonfree, flashplugin-mozzilla i have tried a couple other flash players and none seem to work. under /usr/lib/iceweasel there is no plugins folder. so i cant drag the .so file into it.
