    [ubuntu] Re: CPU always loaded Ubuntu 10.04 LTS

    k-acpi-d. You want this, but something is obviously wrong. Might be missing modules or an ACPI configuration problem.

    It won't be easy to kill since it is likely to be running as root and will...

    [ubuntu] Re: Help with MTRRs

    MTRRs are registers on your CPU. They can be used, and are used by Intel graphics drivers, to control access to system memory. This is something that is critical to onboard graphics cards. There...

    [all variants] Re: Moderately High System load

    Yeah, run top and if anything is above about 1% then let us know what it is.

    conky will also monitor total system load and the top processes without sucking down your CPU noticeably.
  4. [ubuntu] Re: Headphones and speakers play at same time

    With ALSA being such a black art, most people are happy to get sound out of anything at all. My recommendation is don't touch anything in case you break it :D

    [ubuntu] Re: Firefox 4 Top Bar

    You just want the tabs above the URL bar? You need to check tabs on top. You will find this by right-clicking on a blank part of any toolbar such as the tabs bar.

    [other] Re: Swapfiles on hard drives Vs USB flash

    Lastly, in case you aren't convinced, swapping should be very low compared to other disk I/O. If you are doing significant amounts of swapping then your performance will suffer whatever you do. ...

    [ubuntu] Re: /home resize

    You can do it from the console (text or recovery boot), but the Live CD is much easier (but a little slower).

    [ubuntu] Re: How do I make Ubuntu faster?

    Statler is no longer alpha. It went live in February shortly after Debian Squeeze was released. The previous version of Crunchbang was based on Ubuntu, but Jaunty so no longer supported in any way.

    [ubuntu] Re: Defend my Server

    That completely depends what connectivity your server needs to the outside world? Eliminate all entry points that you don't need and secure the rest.

    [ubuntu] Re: what's apt's equivalent of dpkg -L?

    You mean apt-get? Or aptitude? apt is the generic name for several tools such as apt-get, apt-cache, etc.

    Anyway, I don't think there is a command to produce the exact same output as dpkg -l,...

    No Unity, no Compiz. Preferably no Metacity at all. If you're going to do that though you might as well forget straight full Ubuntu and go for a lightweight distro.

    I'm also not sure how your...

  13. [SOLVED] Re: Insane boot time - 149 seconds of NOTHING

    Not so bad. Is ureadahead profiling on that bootchart?
  14. [ubuntu] Re: Very slow boot after installing a new 11.04

    Doesn't look so bad. Except for ureadahead! I don't think ureadahead is actually the problem. Rather something else is making disk access extremely slow, something that doesn't show on bootchart. ...

  19. [ubuntu] Re: 1 min 30'' boot time after upgrading to 11.04

    dmesg doesn't show you the whole story, only a few kernel messages. 2s to mount the inititial file system is about right. 30s to begin udev is not right. Something is hanging in there, possibly the...
  20. [SOLVED] Re: Insane boot time - 149 seconds of NOTHING

    Looks like the same problem that several other people have come across. System hangs for ages at kernel initialisation, and possible on hardware detection. I haven't seen anyone with a solution.

    I think your bootchart program gave up after 2 minutes I don't see your desktop starting at all within that time, presumably another minute later.

    No. Firefox 4 will keep history until it runs out of room. You can control the maximum amount of space it will use for history, although by default Firefox decides based on your RAM.

  24. [ubuntu] Re: Very slow boot after installing a new 11.04

    Yes, dmesg isn't necessarily going to show you what it really slow, just give you messages that may be from perfectly good processes. Use bootchart.
