comment Is it possible to use ffmpeg to trim off X seconds from the beginning of a video with an unspecified length?
I was having this issue as well. This post did it for me. I bit the bullet and stopped trying to use -vcodec copy -acodec copy for all my editing commands. Re-encoding prevented the black frames from the beginning of my video or not cutting at the right spot (the difference of a second without re-encoding was translating to almost a 5 second difference in the video). So, I ended up replacing -vcodec copy with -vcodec libx264 -crf 0.

Repaiting disk permission as we speak. Thanks for the suggestion. Will accept if it fixes!

comment Prompted for password twice at linux boot login
This was, indeed, the problem. I cross-posted here and in the Arch forums; another explanation can be found there. An Arch update removed some items in /etc/pam.d/login and put them in /etc/pam.d/system-login which was called by /etc/pam.d/system-local-login. Since I incorrectly merged my existing login with the update pushed by Arch, pam_unix.so was indeed being called twice, hence two login prompts.

comment Can the Windows 7 system reserved partition be deleted without problems?
This seems to directly conflict with what appears to be a duplicate superuser question unless I'm missing something. In other words, it is possible. The OP didn't mention bitlocker, so I'm not sure if it would be relevant here.

comment /sys/class/power_supply files become zero until reboot to OS X and back to Linux
@RandolphWest: Perhaps... but it's "reset" or fixed somehow by booting into OS X. If it was a bad piece of hardware, I wouldn't expect a particular OS to fix it somehow.

Just tried it and that solves the issue for me! I can give up horizontal scrolling for this fix; I don't use it much anyway. Thanks!

I'll try this when I get home and get back to you; if it works, I can post on Arch Wiki as well. Thanks!
