  1. [ubuntu] Re: Is there a way to "Overclock" my video/graphics card on Ubuntu?

    also fun and expensive to replace parts in the laptop ;)
  2. [ubuntu] Re: Some write operations impossible in some cases

    This will be a kernel issue then affecting that device. You should try and find out exactly which module the internal wifi used and inquire to the developer about it, or at least file a bug report...
  3. [ubuntu] Re: Is there a way to "Overclock" my video/graphics card on Ubuntu?

    You didn't say what kind of card it is.

    If you do not have an accelerated 3D card with a GPU, I don't think this is worth pursuing.

    Overclocking usually refers to the CPU, and it exploits the...

    [ubuntu] Re: Compiler error

    Maybe it's already there! Try:

    g++ -o quicksort quicksort2.cpp

    :p

    ps. mergesort is more consistent, quacksort is for ducks
  5. [all variants] Re: What is the fastest 3D video card with completely free drivers?

    You can also google "Nouveau" (well, probably google "Nvidia open source nouveau"); they are trying to do free-not-as-in-beer drivers for nvidia cards.

    Nb., I have not used that personally ;)
  6. [ubuntu] Re: Toshiba Satellite CPU temp and fan control

    Your hardware won't get damaged -- it will shut down when it overheats. Meaning it will just get steadily harder to use, if I'm right about the problem. I am guessing it is at least a year or two...

    [ubuntu] Re: Making a launcher.

    Yeah, presuming you are running GNOME you can add things to the menu directly from the menu (it's a point and click GUI).

    I'm not in GNOME right now but if you look around under administration or...

    [ubuntu] Re: CPU Temperature : 95C

    I've taped window screen over the intake vents since then -- it's much finer grain than the plastic grate built into the chassis over the fan.

    That will collect a very noticeable amount of dust...

    That's very interesting, but even if it did contribute slightly to the problem this does not change the fact that:

  11. [SOLVED] Re: How do I change all home folder permissions via the Terminal!

    The command is chmod. Eg:

    chmod 750 dirname

    chmod -R works recursively, but it works on the files inside as well as the directories. This is a little awkward because you will need the...

    [SOLVED] Re: failed to fork

    @gmargo: Good eye.

    That is a ridiculously huge chunk of memory to have consumed at start-up and it is not simply compiz. I run 2gb and with compiz it is still under half a gb after boot.

    No, the ice was sealed in frozen water bottles and my air is dry, so there is little condensation ;) I also know other people who turned out to have the same problem, who never resorted to ice.

    [ubuntu] Re: CPU Temperature : 95C

    How old is the laptop? You did not say whether the fan was on. I'm presuming it is, and it probably stays on, right?

    If so, most likely the heat sink is clogged and has to be cleaned.

    I know...

    Re: laptop fan not turning on

    I don't know why you'd expect the fan to be on at that point. These are more like ideal temperatures. It is not good to run too cold, either.

    If the room temp. is <16C, then it's probably never...
