I scanned down a bit but didn't see anyone asking so I thought I would ask. Is anyone experiencing any serious issues with CM12.1 on Hammerhead? (Nexus5)

Trying to decide if I want to flash it or wait till it matures a bit.

Does anyone else have epic problems with the OSX Client? I couldn't get through Blood of the Ancients without it locking up at least 5 times, and that' with all the graphics settings on Medium. 

Anyone have any tricks to make this stop happening?

Yes, I am having the same issue. I am also getting this nice where they want to to add the admin pw to some vvpmm.. something. I am getting worried. I can't do simple STF like the bug hunt.. I keep freezing.

I'm sure someone's already run into this but I thought this would get the quickest response.

Ever since upgrading to 9.3 I've been having issues with permissions. Whenever I try to modify permissions on a volume or a cifs share, no matter what user or group I pick it tells me it is not valid. 

I'm sure I"m just missing something and I'm sure it's probably something easy. I didn't have this problem until I upgraded my array. 

Much appreciation to anyone who can help me fix this.

Actually I figured out what it was. Apparently at some point I put an ldap server in and it stopped working.

Has anyone had any success getting FreeIPA 4 installed on either RHEL 6 OR 7? Can't get it shoehorned onto 6 at all and on 7 it locks up right after I configure freeipa and reboot.

Is there a way for the latest GNOME to run on Ubuntu without killing Unity? 

I don't use Unity much on my MBP/Linux Hybrid leaning more towards Cinnamon as my default desktop, but I want to be more familiar with GNOME and would hate to have to tank Unity to do it.

sudo apt-get install ubuntu-gnome-desktop

If you want a newer version than what is in your current Ubuntu, you can try the development release of Ubuntu, or build from source and install into a separate prefix using jhbuidl or something, too.

So over the weekend the final straw landed. 2 hours later my 2011 13" Macbook Pro was formatted and replaced with Ubuntu 14.04 running Cinnamon 2.4. 

So far it's running like a champ, performance blowing OSX out of the water, and no issues.

Here is the magazine with the article I mentioned about putting Ubuntu on a macbook. Possibly of use:

So is anyone else having problems doing searches with google now this morning? I've tried it from 3 different devices on both wifi and LTE AND after rebooting. I keep getting 'Cant load search results'.

It's been awhile since I used XBMC/Kodi. The last time I ran XBMCBuntu though you could exit out of XBMC to the window manager to connect to wireless. But hopefully someone figures a way to build a network connect option into the setups. 

Downloading the latest to give it another shot (but it isn't as useful as Plex :)

So what is everyones music player of choice? 
Mine WAS Clementine, however tonight I'll admit that Banshee was much more useful (one click import of cd). But I'll probably still stick with Clementine.

So after a couple weeks of running Ubuntu 14.04 on m y2011 MBP it's still running great. I've run into the occasional mouse issue where it selects everything on the screen but those are few and far between. Mostly this is just the best linux laptop I've had to date. 

On the reverse side, we got brand new 15" 2014 MBP's at work and while I didn't try to put linux on mine a co-worker converted his and has hit mixed results. Think he's settled on Ubuntu for the moment after trying Mint and Arch.

So recently I converted my main laptop to Ubuntu 14.04 running Cinnamon 2.4 and I'm finding that when streaming from Plex using the web client in full screen mode my screen dims after something like 3 minutes. Has anyone else experienced this problem and if so how do I fix it? Typically when a video is playing in full screen the system doesn't dim the screen.

+Aric Wilisch Not sure if this has been corrected but +Paul Miller is correct that it is the power management settings. If you don't change the settings when you watch a movie you will at least have to move the mouse every few minutes to avoid the screen dim.

Has anyone successfully got STO to run under Linux? I'm going to tackle it today under Playonlinux.
