Just to Share. My 9.1O ToDo List
I am using Ubuntu since 2006.
Just to share. Here are few thing I need to do to match
Ubuntu 9.1O up to my Windows install (dual boot ~ games!!).
My ubuntu 9.1O ToDo List
# mplayer && purevideo [VDPAU] #
I had compiled it under 9.O4. Now it is broken 9.1O
Mplayer was not using processor even 5% playing HD! Completely working with smplayer & all. cool!!
See [wait. Link in linux partition. How do i access that through windows in 9.1O?]
# DISABLE python startup & ubuntuONE #
This is easy. No need ubuntuONE.
"sysv-rc-conf" is the best app there is for these dirty jobs.
# REMOVE all icons @ gnome-panel #
This doesn't work! http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=8211343
# linux_phc (acpi_inside_kernel_since_9.O4) #
My C2D E75OO is very hot ~ 75C @ 3.3GHz (did all I could to cool it physically except expensive cooler).
Using RMClock in Windows to reduce voltage. Previously used 1.288 core voltage @ Cpu-Z.
Now it uses 1.152. Heat is reduced to 54C @ full usage (even in LinX v6).
Same can be achieved in linux using linux PHC patch for acpi module.
# nvidia official driver & "custom_kernel" && dkms #
Says it all. New kernel for linux_phc req. since acpi module is no longer a module!
It is inside the kernel now (Why did they do it?)
Official Nvidia drivers would require my custom kernel source &
so would any future graphic driver update. (remeber to keep the source).
# `visudo` error @ gnome apps like mount thru nautilus. #
Previously I used to do visudo and add NOPASSWD in sudoers file to stop asking
me for password to do super-user task. This give errors in 9.1O. Example mount internal partitions.
Going to look into this.
# application filtering firewall #
A firewall like Zonealarm or Comodo to block all outgoing connection and ask for my permission before allowing outgoing connections. Firestarter had it but was buggy which made me dump it ( didn't start or something I don't remember, used it in 8.1O. Was a workaround for it too. Starting it before network or something).
PS- screenshots won't hurt! A bit OLD.
