I hope nobody minds that I cleaned up the title a little bit.

301 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6817 20:05

gtkpod seems like it is not able to work with a sixth generation iPod Nano.
There is something in the help files that mentions changing some value from "auto" to "vfat" in some file called "fstab" but I do not know what that is or how to do it.
Help please?

302 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6817 20:18

>>301
fstab is your file systems table located in /etc/fstab
You will need to edit it as root with the text editor of your choice.
If it's in there, the value you need to change should be the third field. e.g. change

/dev/sdc /media/someplace auto

to

/dev/sdc /media/someplace vfat

>>302
Are you sure? I have a /dev/ directory but there is no /sdc/ sud-directory in it.

304 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6818 00:02

>>303
No, I mean those are lines in the fstab file.

Also, they are files. The /dev directory holds device files for your hard drives, mice, keyboards, etc. You may have heard the saying "everything in UNIX is a file". This is why.

305 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6818 00:05

>>303
unix uses files to describe devices, not directories. try this:

ls /dev/ | grep sd

sda is usually your hard drive
sda1, sda2, etc are partitions on your hard drive

everything after a (sdb, sdc, sdd) with a number after it (sdb1, for example) is a partition on a device that's usually removable storage. hth

When the DQN Short Novel thread is over I shall compile the posts... and then set it to music like I did with the madlib thread!

307 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6818 09:18

>>306
Somebody should make an audiobook of this thread as well and post it to archive.org. Is it hard to get your things to archive.org? I think it would pass as a contemporary art.

Anyway, way to fuck up a good story. http://4-ch.net/dqn/kareha.pl/1310158763/997 broke the 4th wall like an idiot and posted like it was Demanding from the next poster thread. I hope he accidentally slams his toe with a door.

308 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6818 10:24

>>307
Ah yes, there was mention of that in the previous thread, wasn't there? (http://4-ch.net/dqn/kareha.pl/1326391378/921-924)

I'm still happy to record a chapter or two in my spectacularly British accent, although my microphone is not great.

In other news, I'm very proud to have claimed both the 2 GET and the 999 GET. It feels so right.

>>308
I love the British accent! Personally, I could provide fellow dokyuns with a terrible Russian accent. The last time I had to say anything lengthy in English was at least a year ago.

313 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6818 21:33

>>312
Haha. I like it. I can do a few myself - Australian, prohibition era mafia thug, French, Indian, harsh Russian, Italian, Asian... oh god this is going to be so much fun!

314 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6818 23:23

I wish we were organized enough to pick a narrator and voice actors for different characters. But that story was mostly action, wasn't it? And characters only had a couple of lines before they died or fell out of story line, hadn't they? We might as well get a professional narrator and an Indian tech support for the rest.

315 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6818 23:33

>>314
Let's do the next best thing and partition it into x sections of y posts long. Then we can claim section y and have the whole story narrated eventually. Is 50 posts each a good start? 70? 30? 999/50 = 20 sections. How's that sound to everyone?

316 Name: >>315 : 1993-09-6818 23:34

section x*

>>315 sounds good to me

318 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6819 06:12

>>315
How about we split them into the 10 sections that already exist? They are listed quite conveniently at http://tanasinn.info/wiki/DQN_Short_Novel.

The lengths of the sections vary widely, but that's okay. I think 10 sections is a good number, I doubt we'll have more than 10 people wanting to record.

If people are cool with this idea I'll make a wiki page for the recording project so people can claim sections!

319 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6819 06:14

>>318
I'm an idiot and can't count, make that 12 sections!

323 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6819 11:08

>>322
Which chapter three? There's four of them.

Unless anyone else desperately wants it, I shall take the first chapter.

I set up a simple wiki page ala the Title Recording Project just so we can easily keep track of which chapters have been claimed. Feel free to edit it.

Ooh, okay. But where is the fstab file? Or more accurately, where is the one I'm supposed to use?

>>305
Oh thanks. With only the HDD and a SD card reader connected, this is the output:

sda
sda1
sda2
sda5
sdb

If you guys can help me set this up, then I'll have a working iPod Nano 8GB that I got for a dollar out of a evil Japanese prize game!

>>307
I'm game for this. I could easily do a section in a night. I have a Northeast American accent. Give me whatever is the next available section that needs doing and I'll record it in one night.

Oh, so it's a being-cryptic-with-what-you-write-on-your-hands contest, is it? Well, back in secondary school (aged ~14) I created a fairly advanced code purely for writing notes to myself on my own hand. It wasn't a simple replacement code; it actually had up to three English letters per character.

Needless to say, I've completely forgotten the code itself and why I thought it was a good idea in the first place.

I wrote on my hand a lot when I was a kid. My dad said "You'll get ink poisoning!"... I'm still not sure if that was bullshit or not.

However, thanks to Jerkoff McDouchebags, getting Chinese characters/Japanese kanji as a tattoo makes you look like a Jerkoff McDouchebag.

I've never seen eye to eye with people who start hating something they used to like just because it gained popularity, but hating on the weenies who have suddenly latched onto a favorite entertainment franchise of yours and are making you see absolute stupidity associated with it every fucking time... well, that's fair game.
