    [ubuntu] Re: Swap - The Age Old Question

    CPU usage is orthogonal to RAM usage.

    The big one is Java. It gets round to clearing up after itself, mostly, eventually, but in the meantime you'd better have some way of creating new pages.

  2. Re: transferred linux partition from server to VM. Max screen res not available

    That looks exactly like the dimensions of the window. Resize it.
  3. Re: Minecraft requests for graphical driver update

    10.04 has been unsupported for 5 years already.

    The Intel graphics driver is provided by the kernel and the Mesa stack. Installing a supported version of Ubuntu will give you versions of both of...

    Re: Setting CPU profiles

    It's not like you have an Nvidia CPU.

    Personally, I just use
    echo performance | sudo tee /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu*/cpufreq/scaling_governor but there are plenty of user-friendly tools to...

    [ubuntu] Re: Monitor keeps shutting down

    Monitors turn themselves off to save power and prevent burn-in. If your monitor turns off regularly - every 15 minutes or so - when you aren't using the computer, that's what it's supposed to do. If...

    [ubuntu] Re: step zero

    No, you absolutely do not want to have that file on the drive. You use that file to say what should be on the drive. Think of the .iso file as a .zip file if you like. It's an image of the contents...

    [SOLVED] Re: Entering Data In Terminal

    If you were using keyboard shortcuts to copy and paste, the shortcuts are different in the terminal. Ctrl-C cancels a running command, so that can't be used as a shortcut for copy; I don't know if...
  8. [SOLVED] Re: Installed Ubuntu 16.04.1 Desktop AMD 64 And Now Can't Boot To Hard Drive

    I think that setting is for booting from Optane (which I don't think Linux supports, although it's not something I've looked into, particularly), rather than RAID proper. My understanding is that...

    Re: Cannot deactivate update sources

    The PPA driver is actually updated. The one in the CUDA repos is static: you need to go through the whole palaver of installing the entire CUDA stack again if you want whichever features are in the...

    Re: Cannot deactivate update sources

    The three cuda-local ones, yes. You'll want to delete the local repositories as well. No point keeping them when you haven't got anything pulling packages from there.

    It's a weird setup, for when...

    Re: Cannot deactivate update sources

    One of the ways of installing CUDA from Nvidia is to create a local repository of the CUDA packages, and then install from there. That appears to be what you've done. You can either uninstall the...

    [ubuntu] Re: Swap - The Age Old Question

    It's just a file that's full of zeros. I'd imagine you can put it wherever you want, although you'd want it on your fastest storage in case it ever does get used. Not having played around with it...

    [ubuntu] Re: Swap - The Age Old Question

    Yes, you need a swap file.

    Out of memory situations are simply awful. Some applications simply misbehave. Setting aside a tiny proportion of your drive space to prevent running out of memory...
  15. [SOLVED] Re: Installed Ubuntu 16.04.1 Desktop AMD 64 And Now Can't Boot To Hard Drive

    Your UEFI settings are the likely culprit.

    Two likely candidates are the boot mode of your install media, or your drive settings.

    If your machine is set to boot in UEFI mode rather than...

    They're after 19201200.

    It sounds like that monitor's doing its own funky thing: assuming that if you're using HDMI then you want it to be a TV. The resolutions that are made available in Ubuntu...

    20.04 will probably work out of the box OK, but 18.04 would need a newer version of Mesa. It's just adding a PPA; there are a few to choose from,...

    It's not clear what you mean by that question. Nuke everything and just install Ubuntu is one of the options (it might even be the default option) in the installer.

    Otherwise you can buy a...

    [lubuntu] Re: Build Tower or PC

    The Ryzens are great. I'm not sure why you'd pick the 1600, though, rather than the newer models. They've had some big improvements as they've developed.

    Re: I am a bit sceared of lm_sensors

    It's fine.

    Potentially communicating on the wrong bus could cause your computer to get confused and crash. If that had happened, restarting it would make it good as new again. I've never heard of...
