    If you want to copy bit by bit, you could use ddrescue (package somehow is called gddrescue).
    For a file-based copy I would suggest rsync.

    Both are teminal based programs, and both are rather...

    [ubuntu] Re: Software raid5 - Very low performance

    Maybe it is indeed the faulty drive causing the pain. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Time-Limited_Error_Recovery suggest that without propper TLER settings disk failures could slow down the entire raid.

    Quick-reading your long post I came to the impression you tried only copying files from your USB disk to the raid to check speeds? Maybe the problem is with reading from USB? You can check this...

    [SOLVED] Re: Odd 100% CPU spike every half hour?

    lsmod
    should list all loaded kernel modules.


    rmmod
    allows to unload them. modprobe -u may do the same. Have a look in the manuals, eg.

    man rmmod
    man modprobe
    man lsmod

    Could you please share your thoughts about the P11Z please? Does it otherwise run well with Ubuntu? Does it feel very slow? How long does the battery last?

    I seem to remember that used energy scales about linearly with frequency and about ^2 with voltage. (Info must be from overclockers.com if I remember correctly)
  17. [ubuntu] Re: how to create dual audio copies of my DVD collection?

    I also found another nice program, which is a lot easier to install than dvd2xvid. It is called handbrake and you can download ready-made 32bit and 64bit ubuntu packages from here:...
  18. [ubuntu] Re: how to create dual audio copies of my DVD collection?

    Dvd2xvid easily creates Dual-Language avi files in decent quality. Unfortunately I have no time right now to build ubuntu packages. I have tested it in suse linux though and there it works nicely.
  19. [ubuntu] Re: how to create dual audio copies of my DVD collection?

    If space is available, you can just copy the DVD to a harddisk image file with the dd command.

    Something like

    dd if=/dev/dvdrom of=/path/to/your/colletion/dvdname.iso
    should work, see

  23. Re: HowTo: Undervolt your notebook CPU for longer battery life

    I recieved some comments suggesting it doesn't work with AMD. However I am not sure. Your best bet is probably to check the website of the PHC Project. The link is in the HowTo.

    Yeah that is the file. Go for it. In case it doesn't work try replacing the values below 19 to 19 as other people suggested.
