On ubuntu clients (certainly 12.04/12.10) for some daft reason they linked ldap-utils against gnutls and linked that against a broken crypto backend due to GPL issues.
If you trust the server you are talking to implicitly then make /etc/ldap/ldap.conf look like this:
# LDAP Defaults...
I really think people are seriously over reacting. My usage of windows didn't change in 8 and 8 actually decreases the time taken to get to seldom used apps. Frequent apps can be dropped on the desktop or pinned to the task bar as in 7 so no operational change really.
It's like getting used to...
I never got to the bottom of it myself.
In the end I told the desktop user that we'd done everything according to instructions from Microsoft and if it still wasn't working he'd have to make do.
We even tried local machine registry edits as well at one point.
I find it faster myself. Win 8 on the whole is much snappier. I do admit though I have the desktop and taskbar configured exactly the same as on win 7 and only use the start screen for seldom used stuff. How I use windows hasn't really changed at all.
The only problem I have with win 8 is all...
Overall I like it.
It's snappier than windows 7 at a technical level, keyboard and mouse work quite well with the metro start ui now as well.
The change over is quite jarring though and this will be a major barrier to adoption. While faster once you adjust. Most people being human and not...
VLC has basic blu--ray support and is the only way to do it on linux.
Best bet: fix windows and do it properly :) Linux will be lucky to get proper blu-ray support due to licensing and certification costs.
Most people on earth are satisfied with "good enough".
madVR gives extremely accurate (and highly configurable) image resize/rescale to a degree that nvidia/ati/microsoft don't bother providing by using gpu shaders.
See madVR - high quality video renderer (GPU assisted) - Doom9's Forum for...
I can only provide it via PM as it's on an anime episode download site.
If you want it let me know and I'll pm the link.
As to playback - it plays everything I throw at it except bink/smacker which a lot of games use. I understand licensing issues prevents updates to that.
Use whatever you want, VLC however is the last thing you should be using for media playback on windows :) Even the windows mplayer port (smplayer) is better than VLC. But really you want to be using MPC-HC, madVR renderer, LAV filters, Haali Splitter and Reclock for the best possible playback on...
