Using DMA to speed up my DVD player

SuSE 9.2 default didn't enabled DMA on my DVD player and CD player. From /etc/rd.d/boot.idedma it seems I'm able to force DMA by specifying so into /etc/sysconfig/ide.

uname -r

I added these commands to my KDE Menu, and attached the shortcuts WINKEY+S and WINKEY+As respectively.

Shortcuts

  • Commandline Editing

You can navigate and edit the command line with the cursor and the function keys ('Home', 'End' etc), if you like, but there are also keyboard shortcuts for most standard editing tasks:

   * CTRL+K: delete ('kill') from cursor position to the end of the line
   * CTRL+U: delete from cursor position to the beginning of the line
   * ALT+D : delete from cursor position to the end of the current 'word'
   * CTRL+W: delete from cursor position to the beginning of the current 'word'
   * CTRL+A: move cursor to the first character of the line
   * CTRL+E: move cursor beyond the last character of the line
   * ALT+A : move cursor to the first character of the current 'word'
   * ALT+E : move cursor to the last character of the current 'word'
   * CTRL+Y: insert latest deleted 'word'

As you venture deeper into Linux land, you'll find that these keyboard shortcuts are also used in other applications when it comes to entering text, for example in browser input fields.
