  2. [xubuntu] Re: Unusually high power consumption with Xubuntu 12.04, but not with Ubuntu 12.04

    So out of curiousity, what's the difference in sysctl settings between the older, installed image and the ones you checked lately?

  3. [xubuntu] Re: Unusually high power consumption with Xubuntu 12.04, but not with Ubuntu 12.04

    Can you dump all sysctl params in your installed distro and live cd and compare?

    Did you try to change the power settings for your network card?
    Can you try Ubuntu 12.04 live cd again, to see what it reports now.
    BTW, there have been some kernel changes between 12.04 to...
  5. [xubuntu] Re: Unusually high power consumption with Xubuntu 12.04, but not with Ubuntu 12.04

    Do you have a comparison with the ubuntu install btw?
    Under cat /proc/interrupts, is there any core specifically doing anything more than the others?

  6. [xubuntu] Re: Unusually high power consumption with Xubuntu 12.04, but not with Ubuntu 12.04

    Do you have an Intel CPU?
    Could be an Intel idle driver going wonky.
    Can you please check what C-States you have and values under:
    /sys/devices/system/devices/cpu/cpu<X>/cpuidle/state.

    Re: Xubuntu 13.04 review - Et tu, Brute?

    I do kernel testing and debugging at work, I don't want to do it at home.
    I want simple, stable products with predictable response, that's all.

    It is the job of people developing the hardware interfaces - kernel/drivers/etc to do that job.

    Re: Huge Linux Steam Sale

    Just bought myself three new games, plus Serious Sam two weeks back. I did not intend to get these normally, but I did it to support the Steam guys. They need love for what they've done.

    When the stuttering begins, anything interesting in /var/log/messages or dmesg? Did you consider polling memory/cpu/disk usage every 30 sec to see what gives? Can you monitor the card temp when...

    Re: Dedoimedo Fedora review

    You can solve this with the following:
    in Mint, mount the Fedora root partition to, say, /mnt.
    Then run update-grub command and it will work.

    Re: Virtual Machine Crashes Host

    You need the crash tool for that.
    And kernel debuginfo installed.

    Not for the newbies.

    But the fact there is a crash dump indicates a driver conflict of some sort. In the machine settings,...
