    [ubuntu] Re: Nautilus slows as it goes

    So what's the disease and what is the cure? Is the file system repeatedly traversing a growing linked-list of directory entries?

    The destination drive has no bad sectors, so no remapping. It's...

    [ubuntu] Re: Nautilus slows as it goes

    Opening the CF card doesn't seem to be the problem. It is the file operations that have a problem. I was able to watch the transfer rate progressively collapse over a few tens of seconds. It is...

    I was transferring 1,000 x 4.8MB images from a USB 2.0 connected CF memory card and found that the transfer rate slowed dramatically as the files were moved.

    Initially Nautilus reported 15MB/sec...

    [ubuntu] Nautilus does not see network shares

    I have a dozen Ubuntu 10.10 machines connected to a wired LAN. Much of the time I'm able to access any of the Linux machine's Samba shares from my main workstation... the system runs for days without...

  7. Re: SSE SIMD code is slower than non-SSE

    No I haven't looked at the assembler code. It is a VERY long time since I read such stuff and I never did get along with Intel 8080 assembler code -- I preferred the 6800 code (that's how long ago...
  8. SSE SIMD code is slower than non-SSE

    I'm trying some simple experiments using gcc and SSE intrinsics to speed up a quite conventional image filter convolution.

    [SOLVED] libjpeg-turbo installation

    I'm about to start a new project which will read many jpeg images and I started the exploratory work to read the EXIF data. One thing lead to another and I stumbled upon libjpeg-turbo.

    Wow, I...
  11. [SOLVED] Re: Why is #pragma STDC FENV_ACCESS ignored ?

    Thanks. Defining the __USE_GNU allows the prototype for feenableexcept to become visible but defining the "documented" _GNU_SOURCE does not.

    I'm using the default -std=gnu89 so I guess that is why...
  12. [SOLVED] Why is #pragma STDC FENV_ACCESS ignored ?

    I'm using gcc 4.4.5 and C code. I'm compiling with all the SSE floating point options for the x86, turned on.

    I find that gcc does not recognize the STDC FENV_ACCESS pragma defined in C99.

  13. [all variants] Re: NTFS: unable to execute ---: Permission denied

    This advice has proven VERY helpful. :popcorn: The documentation for FSTAB is quite misleading. It reads:

    I have the same issue with Banshee and other music players. They are all geared exclusively to popular music with a hierarchy of performer/album/song. It's disappointing that there is no automatic...
  16. [ubuntu] login loop 10.10 and Brasero hell for 11.04 iso

    It's my own damned fault. I figured it was time to update the OS (9.04) on my music server which was working just fine. It's a VERY old Sempron based board with VIA Unichrome integrated graphics. I...

    GRUB2 power interruption

    I'm using Ubuntu 10.10 in an 'appliance' application. There is no keyboard or mouse, just a power button. This works fine since I have a script that launches my application when Ubuntu starts.

  19. [SOLVED] XP style shared directory with Samba

    I recently solved (with some help from folks on this forum) a problem I had with getting Ubuntu & Samba to provide a SharedDocs directory similar to that in Windows XP.

    I just completed a test from one Ubuntu machine to a shared directory on another Ubuntu machine with Samba conf settings of:

  22. [SOLVED] Re: failed to retrieve share list from server

    Perhaps, but expectations are expectations and a good user interface needs to be intuitive. Samba running on Ubuntu declares unambiguously that it has a "Windows Network" not a...
  23. [SOLVED] Re: failed to retrieve share list from server
