  1. Re: Square Root of RAM for swap space formula

    You might want to rethink that.

    square root of 100 = 10
    10 rounded up to a power of 2 = 16

    Look at the table.

    +2 for Montag dp for actually answering the question.

    OP seems intent on getting an answer - he's given up on us and gone on to ask elsewhere:...

  4. [SOLVED] Re: removed lightdm, thinking to use startx, 14.04 won't finish booting

    Thank you, sir.

    I'm such an idiot I should run for congress. I don't know why I didn't think to try that. Yes, I can log in on tty1. Furthermore I can update and dist-upgrade. And I can startx....
  5. [SOLVED] removed lightdm, thinking to use startx, 14.04 won't finish booting

    I thought I'd give starting x with startx a try on my main system. It worked ok when I logged in as another user on other ttys, so why shouldn't it work on my mains system? Duh, maybe because lightdm...

    Mea culpa. Y'see, it was dark when I took my smart pills, and I aksidently got the stoopid pills instead.

    @ matt_symes:

    I meant no disrespect to Grahammechanical and intended no offense to him. He is a level headed chap and I doubt if he took any.

    No, but it seems clear that it was obvious to OP....
  8. Re: Square Root of RAM for swap space formula

    Right. The meaning is obvious. But none of this addresses OP's question, which I think is a darned good one:
    Unless it's somebody's idea of a joke, there must be some logic behind it, and like OP,...
  9. [SOLVED] Re: Please help with wireless USB adapter

    No guarantee, and a bit more work, but if you don't come up with an easier approach soon, another idea:

    A few, none I'm afraid, are dazzling strokes of genius:

    [SOLVED] Re: Boot Repair fails to repair

    Definitely don't.

    Definitely do.

    You may get advice later from someone well informed about UEFI. I'm not. But if it was working before, I'd return the bios setting to what was working...
  12. [ubuntu] Re: New Installation of 14.04.3: No Mouse Cursor, Slow Graphics ...

    I suggest you give up on that and install Lubuntu or Xfce over it.

    They are more similar in UI to what you had before, so you'd probably like either of them better even if the Unity system was...

    [SOLVED] Re: Terminal question

    Weird shinola happens.

    Like I'm here because this is on the "unanswered posts" list. Doesn't seem to be true.

    I think it's because some electrons are just eccentric.
  15. Re: Trouble with verifying iso - cannot open gpg file

    Try giving the explicit path/filename, not just the filename. Like:
    gpg --verify /path/to/this/SHA256SUMS.gpg /path/to/this/SHA256SUMSI don't believe you even need the second argument unless the...
  16. Re: Square Root of RAM for swap space formula

    It seems pretty clear what it MEANS and of course it is a formula or at least implies one. But why someone chose to express themselves so bizarrely instead of using English I can't imagine. I think...

    Re: Bleach bit deepscan

    It can easily take several hours if you have it set to wipe free space on a large partition.

    The deep scan per se alone, no, not in my experience at least.

    If you did the wipe free space...
  19. [SOLVED] Re: Ubuntu 14.04LTS -- disable screen blanking in the lock screen

    I see. I misunderstood. So when you do that it shows something like a slide show for a while and then goes black?

  20. Re: Login Loop, hoes balck then goes to Login window after getting Gnome

    OK, then, so whatever you do, including possibly following my own possibly bad advice, you can't screw up too badly if your data is safe. I don't know about others but that makes feel much less...
  21. [all variants] Re: where to look to find correct keyboard identification during installation?

    More than one possibility:

    The easiest, surest thing is trial and error. Look at the available choices and pick the most likely. If that doesn't turn out well, reinstall. It doesn't take that long...
  22. [ubuntu] Re: File roller "extract" does not uncompress within own folder

  23. [SOLVED] Re: PulseAudio CPU usage 90%+ when routing. Any fix/replacement?

    If you regard it as solved, it would be good of you to use the thread tools menu to mark it so.
