    Generally, newer HDDs are more efficient than older ones. If they're 7200rpm drives, you may need to consider their heat dissipation. HDD manufacturers should provide technical info for current and...
  4. [ubuntu] Re: How do I make ubuntu SERVER on virtualbox go full screen?

    The guest additions you mentioned are specifically for Xorg (the GUI), and a server running in text mode won't be using Xorg.

    If you want to have more text on screen, you need to look at changing...

    [ubuntu] Re: Any performance improvement if I double ram?

    Re: any phylogeneticist using ubuntu?

    I used that as a starting point, but it's not entirely helpful for Ubuntu users. Instead of using LAM I used Open MPI, which will work on a single multicore machine and across many machines. On 10.04...

    I've just built and run a parallel version of Mr Bayes and the improvement is making me grin like an idiot.

    [ubuntu] Re: Will ATI Radeon HD 4200 work on Ubuntu?

    [ubuntu] Re: Cannot install from USB after using unetbootin

    Excellent, this has worked for me with the 9.10 AMD64 version. I can't believe I forgot about Pendrivelinux.

    RMjohn, I'm having the same problems as you are. I've downloaded the same ISO as you, and the MD5 is correct, but there's no usb-creator.exe. I also tried using unetbootin to make my usb drive...
