  1. [all variants] Make Kernel DPKG's on CentOS Host?

    Here's the deal: I use upstream kernels for several computers (running Ubuntu). I want to compile these on a 24-core Xenon server I have access to. Problem is, the server is running CentOS, and I...
  2. [ubuntu] Re: GLX Video Acceleration with ATI/NVIDIA 3-monitor setup?

    That I know isn't true - on this same card, I used to use Xinerama across two screens, and I had OpenGL working. I actually tried this setup without Xinerama, and GLX wouldn't load successfully there...
  3. [ubuntu] GLX Video Acceleration with ATI/NVIDIA 3-monitor setup?

    Hello all,

    I'm currently running a three-monitor setup, two of the monitors being connected to an NVIDIA card, and the third being connected to the motherboard's onboard ATI adapter. This works,...

    [ubuntu] Re: GPG Key Servers and Spam

    The entire point of a keyserver is to put your public key out where anybody can find it. If people who want to send you E-Mail can't find your key, they can't send you GPG-encrypted E-Mail. You could...

    Re: recursion vs iterative

    Yes, I actually do. You yourself said that an iterative solution equally as (although in reality it would be slightly more) efficient as the recursive one could be written: I wasn't saying that the...

    Re: recursion vs iterative

    Okay, I often forget how ridiculously sexy GCC is (It also optimizes the recursion out of Reiger's x^y implementation). But that doesn't change my original point: if the recursion is actually present...

    Re: recursion vs iterative

    An iterative implementation will ALWAYS be faster than a recursive one, due to the overhead of repetitive function calls in recursion - although for some things, a recursive implementation will be...
  8. [ubuntu] Re: Ubuntu 10.10 Samba Performance terrible! Why so slow?

    Best solution: use FTP - it's faster, more reliable, and probably more secure. I'd suggest vsftpd - I regularly get 100+ MB/s on my LAN transfers, and I don't have any networking hardware that cost...

    [ubuntu] Re: SSH Tunneling Only

    When you say tunnel, I'm assuming you're talking about SOCKS proxying (the '-D' option). If you actually mean IP-Layer tunnels using the tunX interfaces, only root can do that.

    The problem with...
  10. Re: Ubuntu Server - Change Web Player?

    Can you be a little clearer about exactly what you're trying to do here? It sounds like you have a server hooked up to a sound system and you're trying to get it to play music/videos, but that...

  12. [ubuntu] Re: Suckit rootkit... Warning: /sbin/init INFECTED

    That depends on what type of processor you're running on... plus it probably varies depending on the version of the kernel you're using - I'm not entirely sure.
  13. Re: Efficent division in assembly (x86_64)

    You're right of course: but you can't mmap /dev/urandom - you'll get ENODEV.
  14. Efficent division in assembly (x86_64)

    [all variants] Re: Help me choose a server distro

    Ubuntu would be able to do everything you've mentioned, and it is extremely easy to maintain. Aptitude (the package manager) is almost foolproof. Ubuntu also uses very recent kernels (2.6.35 right...

    [ubuntu] Re: Exim Maildir symlink

    The open(...) syscall in Linux works with symlinks unless you explicitly tell it not to with the O_NOFOLLOW flag, and the C function mirrors this behaviour. Pull the source code for exim4 off the...

    If you're asking how to tell what libraries an executable loads, you do that with:
