    Also, I'm afraid that while there are certain users here who would know the answer to my question, this is not the best place to ask. Is there a better...

    [all variants] Re: Java1.7 automatically multithreading?

    Alright, so I looked at the processing tree using htop.

    What's being created and then used? Java's generating 14 threads. There's one root thread and then 13 nested ones. These are all NLWP treads...

    [kubuntu] Re: Xorg sometimes maxes out CPU or crashes

    Isn't Xorg what handles your proprietary drivers? Have you tried disabling those or just straight-up killing the Xorg process? Then again, a direct kill will probably just make your crash so I...

    So I've checked around I've heard it might have something to do with the scheduler. As in, I think what I'm actually doing is launching HoN on the 4th core but afterwards, the scheduler just treats...

    [ubuntu] taskset and Heroes of Newerth...

    Hello All,

    So recently I discovered that you can control which processor a certain thread has an affinity for through taskset. At least, I'm assuming it's a thread, right?

  12. [SOLVED] Re: Can I Make 12.10 Suck Less?

    How can 12.10 possibly suck? It's got Gnome 3.6 and once you get used to it, Gnome 3 is awesome. Unity's OpenGL benchmarks are way down here and Gnome's are way up there. I can finally alt-tab out of...

    The ability of a processor to handle two threads at once does not make it another core but a logical equivalence to one.
