    Tri booting as in Windows, OSX, and Linux?

    You need a FAT partition for data as OSX and Linux dont support NTFS out of the gate.

    Wont work if you have large files though. I beleive the largest file size supported there is around 4gb

      Vista Business, XP Professional, and LInuxICE2 as my default OS( but using the Vista bootloader as my default bootloader)!


      Ubuntu 9.04 detected all of my other partitions as well as my other drives....something is missing from LinuxICE2 to permit access to my other drives(at least as "user" it is) that Ubuntu 9.04 has that I need. Just don't know what yet!!!!!

        search in synaptic for ntfs-3g. That should allow you to mount ntfs drives (which you should see in thunar or nautilus)...

            check in APPS, Applications, pulseAudio Volume Contr, for the speaker icon at the top right. It is probably boxed (muted). Click on it to unbox (unmute). You should also now be able to use the volume slide bars.

              i've never tested cd playback. I have a cd player in my car but I never *ever* use it. If it doesn't work, i may just take it out completely if the fix isn't trivial. I think most people just rip the disc and add it to their library anyway right?

                I would agree on the cd ripping, At first glance I cant imagine it not working, unless what you guys have been doing under the hood needs integration to make NGhost aware of the cd player function. I will give it a go.

                I Just read what I wrote and I am not trying to point out that I think the NGhost/LinuxICE team has done anything wrong. It has just been my experience if no one required it and you weren't lucky enough for it to be a fallout of design requirements, then it probably won't work.

                    KEV gave some tips on a more permanent fix on a recent related thread.

                        when you reboot, nscan will scan your music directories. You can also point your music directory to another folder in the /etc/nghost/nghost.conf file. if you have a large library, be patient. you may want to disable nscan from scanning on startup in the /etc/matchbox/session file.

                        If it's a little temperamental, fear not, we are working on a new player for nghost3 that should take all your scanning worries away.

                          Got my files to the "Library" on my nGhost desktop. Why no sound when playing???


                          Update: Solved....We have sound and Library access!!!

                          How do I display media art? How do I create playlists? How do I maintain my pulse audio volume control settings?

                            media art will display in the now-playing screen *if* the album art is in the tag meta-data (id3 tag). If it isn't there, you can use your favorite tag editor that supports this. easytag does on linux.

                            playlist support doesn't exist yet and probably won't in this version. The new music player should. There is an update in unstable that i'll move to stable on monday that will fix pulseaudio.

                              How do I display media art?
                              I don t think this is resolved yet. I seem to remember reading the gray space you see is a place holder for the artwork when the scheme is defined.

                              How do I create playlists?
                              I dont know the answer to this one, but atm LinuxICE does not support importing playlist so it may not yet support creating and playing.

                              How do I maintain my pulse audio volume control settings
                              use the instructions found here.
