Ubuntu :: Minimum Amount Of Processes That Can Be Run?
Feb 28, 2010
What is the minimum amount of processes that can be run and still keeping stable? I have what looks like over 100 processes running and my computer is lagging pretty bad. Attached is an output of
And it comes and goes with the cpu usage. cpu1 will run at like 9 or 10 percent idle while cpu2 will run at 100 percent all the time. I am not sure whats going on. But id hate to have to start from scratch again begins I just got it set up the way i want it. And the network activity keeps having spikes when I am not online. I've scanned with multiple port scanners and nothing seems out of the norm.
I have a 32-bit Ubuntu installation that for technical reasons needs to be 64-bit even though it has under 4 gigs of ram. I don't want to spend loads of time upgrading it, and almost everything is from the repository. So what I am hoping is that I will be able to find a way to "save" the programs I have installed and then automatically reinstall them when I install the 64-bit OS, install my (2) non-repository programs, and then simply reload the old home directory. Would that work, and how would I do it?
(2 weeks) and i like it already enough to change from odd windows 7, but some people still will use windows 7 in this PC but with minimal usage (email, internet, writing docs, listening at music) i would like to delete as much file from windows7 as possible so i have more space for ubuntu using it as main system.any sugestions on what to delete in windows 7 to free up some space?
I've been trying to install a minimal Ubuntu using mini.iso and have a couple of questions to you, wise heads gives me gnome without all "unnecessary" applications, but it also gives me things like evolution and a couple of others which I don't need/want. Is there a way to install the bare minimum of gnome, but without any of these applications?
I was trying to install fedora 13 on my ESX box. Since it doesnt show me OS Type as Fedora(while I do have RHEL, Ubuntu, OpenSUSE etc)I checked Other Linux 64 bits. and by default it took 384 MB. When I started installing it says insufficient memory and did the text mode installation. What is the minimum RAm I should select for GUI Installation.
I am looking to compile a kernel for my system which is a home built machine. This machine is stable and has not had any hardware changes in the past 2 years. I am trying to figure out exactly what modules and options to include in my custom kernel. Is there a way to see what modules are actually in use on my system and build a custom kernel based on that?
That's the title of article at[URL]Did ubuntu do all this already or is it that ubuntu isn't secure out of the box that it is assumed to be?explain if these steps are applicable to ubuntu and why/why not.
Dell eStudio 1737, has good maximum volume, but when I turn down the volume to a little more than 1/2 way, it is already very low. All other volume controls are already set to maximum. What I would like to do is fix the volume control so that the volume can be set across the entire range of the Alsa mixer control.
After working for about 15 years on MS Windows, I have decided to to change over to Linux. I have a current netbook with 1 GB RAM. The only work I would be doing on the netbook are:
1) Surfing Internet using Firefox browser.
I would avoid saving anything on my disk while browsing. If I need to open files, videos, then I would be opening them directly in the browser while I am connected to the internet.
2) I would be writing code in Java using Java Standard Edition (not the enterprise one).
Those Java programs may need to use the network, graphics, sound- actually the programs will need to use any available Java API/Package/methods available in the Sun distribution of Java.
Now, For the above to jobs, I want to install the bare minimum, smallest linux on my netbook. I mus mention taht I do not want any Linux package/program/library that will not be required for the above two jobs. To rephrase this, I want to have only those linux components that are absolutely necessary for the above two jobs (Surifng the internet with full power on Firefox, and developing Java programs which may use _any_ functionality that is provided by the Sun distribution of Java Standard Edition.
I want to create several virtual machines based on a minimal (no GUI) Ubuntu installation. I'm using VirtualBox (on Windows 7), the VMs are being created with 256MB RAM and using the Ubuntu Minimal CD Image [URL]. Because I want 4-5 of these virtual machines I want to use minimal disk space for storage too, which means restricting the virtual hard disk size for each. My first attempt was to limit it to 300MB, but when I got to the partitioning section of the installer it would not allow me to do automatic partitioning and forced me to do manual partitioning, it did moan about the size of the disk.
So I started again with a 1GB virtual hard disk, this time the installer was quite happy to do the automatic partitioning. My question is how small can I make my virtual hard disk without having to do manual partitioning? I don't have a problem with doing the partitioning manually but for easiness I just want to do it automatically and find it strange the acceptable size isn't mentioned anywhere (that I could find).
If i want to install minimum gnome on debian with netinstaller,what would be the command? Is it correct? aptitude install gnome-core If i do aptitude install gnome-core,what packages would be installed on system?
My Notebook CPU has variable speeds from 600MHz to 1.6GHz but since I upgraded to F13 it has not budged from 600MHz.I have already installed the gnome CPU speed widget and even if I set it to "performance" or "1.6GHz" it stays resolutely on 600MHz
The only indication that I can see that there is something odd is the output of acpitool tells me the min/max cpu speeds are 600MHz/600MHz. I don't know enough about the guts of Linux to know if acpitool is defective or if it's just repeating what it was told by something lower down.I will post some hopefully useful listings of some commands run under Fedora 13 and then the same commands on the same box with an F12 live USB.
Fedora 13 $ acpitool -c CPU type : Intel(R) Pentium(R) M processor 1.60GHz
I recently installed openSUSE 11.4 64Bit on my desktop computer and it is running like a breeze! I have an Intel Dual Core 2.5 and 2GB of RAM and a NVIDIA 8400GS 256MB display card. I just want to know if 2GB of system RAM would be sufficient to run a Windows XP VirtualBox with 768MB of RAM assigned to it? PS - openSUSE is still the best of the best!
I have a nVidia GeForce GTX 760 Ti Graphics card. I have installed the proprietary driver and disabled the open source one. The problem is when I connect to two monitors via DVI and VGA, the VGA one appears to be 'unknown' and is using incorrect resolution of 640x480. How can I correct its resolution?

What is the minimum CPU or processor required for a Debian stable installation with no GUI, desktop environment, or window manager? I can find specs for all minimum hardware capabilities except for the processor on a system with no desktop GUI. (Debian Stable GNU/Linux Installation Guide 3.4 Meeting Minimum Hardware Requirements) section 2.1.2: CPU, Main Boards, and Video Support and Linux Hardware Compatibility Section 4.1—Intel make it seem like any i386 CPU is good enough.
I have a very powerful I7 Intel processor. On this computer I want to simply run an instance of Apache Tomcat (dedicated server) running a java application with a bunch of things like mail server, servlet container, jasper, etc. Some versions of linux have too many features that I do not need. I do not want the clutter of features I will never use. What is the bare bone version of linux distrib? would that be debian?
These two distributions seem to be popular elsewhere on the internet:
I wanted to test my first and relatively small SSD hard drive (32 GB) and started wondering how much disk space do I need for Windows XP SP3 and Fedora 13 installation. I started searching for information and created my own page listing loosely system requirements, because it seems to be difficult to find minimum and especially typical installation disk space consumption.
Has anyone made a single page listing minimum, typical and recommended system requirements, so you can easily use that single page for comparing operating system requirements especially how much hard disk space is needed?
I need to create a special linux user account that has a very limited set of permissions on the system. Essentially to have read-only permissions for his home dir (and sub dirs) and nothing else - i.e. this user has no write or execute permissions and should not be able to read/access other user dirs or indeed anything outside of his home directory, irrespective of rwx permissions.
