Fedora :: X Taking Too Much Processor Percentage

Feb 5, 2011

My configuration is as Follows:
Intel Pentium Dual core 2.6 Ghz
4 GB DDR2 Apacar 800 Mhz RAM
Gigabyte ATI Radeon 5450 HD GPU

I'm using Fedora 14 KDE but on startup it uses 40% of my processor. I'm using the proprietary 10.12 AMD ATI Linux Driver. I'm only using blur and woobly windows effect and I'm using OpenGL. Kubuntu/Suse never gave me this trouble. Even GNOME doesn't only KDE and fedora 14 is troubling me.

Fedora :: F11 Taking 2+minutes To Boot

Aug 21, 2009

I have f11 installed on as a vm on virtualbox 3.0.4. It takes forever to boot. I modified /etc/udev/udev.conf and changed udev_log="info" to udev_log="debug" and rebooted the system. When the progress bars came up I hit Esc and watched the boot process. Udev runs through approximately 7-800 items before it ever tries to load anything else. Is there a way that I can change this? I have been through the forums and can't find anything similar to this. I thought maybe that it was the "Floppy" issue so I went ahead and blacklisted the floppy drive (as this is a vm I don't have access to the BIOS) anyway.

Fedora :: F11 Boot Slow Down (Almost Taking One Minute)

Jun 13, 2009

Anybody notice a slowdown in their boot times? I have had F11 (64 bit) running for about three days and it is taking twice as long to boot as when I first installed. I have not done much other than configure my wireless printer and change a few icons. I have Compiz cube effects running but I did that right away and it made no difference in my system speed. If anything I thought I should be booting faster after disabling a few things in the start up menu that I dont need.

I went from about a 30 second total boot to almost a minute to the login screen

Fedora :: Taking HDD Image Of FC12 Setup?

Jan 21, 2010

After fixing network issue (change to vanilla kernel) and configuring alsa sound drivers, I realise that I may be spending some time doing some more config before putting my machine to hardcore use!

So, is it possible or can anyone recommend a program that can do an image of the hdd which I can save on an external drive and install/reinstall it on hard drive if i ever need to?

Fedora :: Yum Cachedir Change Not Taking Effect?

Fedora Installation :: Upgrade To F15 Taking Too Long To Run

May 28, 2011

I switched to Fedora from Ubuntu about a month ago, and I've been very happy so far. But today I started the upgrade to Fedora 15, and something isn't right. I used the preupgrade method, and the package download took a respectable 30-40 minutes, then I was prompted to reboot my machine. I did so, about 4 hours ago. It took about 2 hours to get to the point where it says it's installing the packages, and 2 hours to get to where it is as I write this, at 116 completed packages out of 1634.

I'm pretty sure this isn't normal for ANY distribution. The machine itself is about 6 months old, so I'm pretty sure it's not a hardware issue. I'm considering interrupting the upgrade and doing a clean install, but I was wondering, is there anything I can do before resorting to the clean install option?

Fedora :: F15 Taking Extremely Long To Boot?

Aug 21, 2011

I just want to find out if anybody else is having a similar issue before I start trying to disable services one by one. When I boot in to F15, everything runs fine up to were it starts loading the CUPS module then it hangs for about 2 to 3 minutes, the next thing to load is Samba shares. So it could be either of these or it could have nothing to do with them. Just to add that I made 100% sure that all my samba shares mount fine and are online and have no shares mounting in my fstab file.

Fedora :: Processor Is At 100% All The Time

Aug 14, 2009

Ever since I turned on my notebook yesterday (Compaq Evo N610c) my processor has been working 100% all the time. I checked processes via System Monitor, and no process is doing such thing.

What can I Do?

Here's a copy/paste from top command

Fedora Networking :: Prevent Second I/f From Taking Over Default Route?

Jul 6, 2009

I have the following network/server configuration:


How do I prevent eth1 from being able to overwrite the default gateway that eth0 has already set?!? I read that one can create route-* files in the /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ directory to setup static default routes.But those seems to require one to know the IP address of the gateway, but in my case the ISP's gateway is served via DHCP and so it could vary from day to day. Here are the contents of some of the relevant files:

General :: Fedora File Permissions Not Taking Effect?

Jun 27, 2011

I have a directory /models/ with the permissions

drw-rw-rw- 2 owner developers 4096 Jun 24 15:13 models

these were set with

sudo chmod -R 0666 *

My user has developers as the primary group (the same group as the file), but I cannot access the directory via the terminal or ftp.

[myUser@machine]$ id myUser
uid=503(myUser) gid=505(developers) groups=505(developers)
$ cd models
-bash: cd: models: Permission denied

I had the same problem before the directory belonged to my group, and I even went so far as to restart the server, without any luck. How do I set permissions to this directory so that I and other members of the group developers can access it?

Fedora :: Any Way To Unset Processor Affinity?

Oct 28, 2009

Does anyone know if there is a way to "unset" processor affinity? So if you bind a process to just one proc, but then want to tell the OS to revert to normal behavior? Also, when you bind a process to a processor, can other processes use that process or does it have exclusive usage of that proc?

Red Hat / Fedora :: How To Get Processor Type At Particular Root

Jun 16, 2010

How do I get arch/processor type at a particular root? On Solaris, I can get it by running
"pkgparam -R "$alt_root" SUNWcsu" (SUNWcsr)
Wonder if something similar for Linux exists? I know that 'uname -p' works for the current system, but I am looking to find arch for a system mounted at some root.

Ubuntu Networking :: Low Wireless Connection Percentage?

Feb 3, 2010

My old PC has new life thanks to Ubuntu 9.1. However, a few small problems still remain:

1. D-Link wireless adapter: My wireless connection percentage never seems to get higher than 70%, even though the wireless router is right outside the door. And to top it off, I can see other neighbor's networks and the signal strength is higher! I am running ndiswrapper if that helps, and the connection is WPA/WPA2, speed of 130 Mb/s which is great, but can I improve the signal?

2. If I leave the computer on and come back after a while, the monitor is black, and I can see that the wireless connection is still going, but I can't seem to "wake up" the computer. I have messed with the settings, but have not attempted anything in the terminal. Can someone provide a simple fix? I would like to Suspend or Hibernate, but they don't work (meaning, I can wake up the computer). So I have resorted to simply logging off each time, which works.

3. Watching streaming video using RealPlayer, many times the screen freezes, and I am unable to navigate to anywhere else on the computer. Meaning, the mouse moves, but cannot open, close, change, do anything on the computer. Ctrl-Alt-Dlt doesn't even work to pop up anything. Is there a less abrupt way to Force Quit than holding down the power button on my computer and restarting the whole thing? I am sure that is not too good for the computer.

Server :: CPU Load Average Higher Than Percentage?

Apr 20, 2010

I don't know what is going on with one of my servers.

It is sitting with a load average of 10.09 10.08 10.02

However If I look at top I see the server between 95% and 99% idle!

Is it possible that my server is running some hidden processes or something?

How I can investigate the cause of this.

Programming :: Progress Bar Instead Of Percentage Complete For Loop

Nov 25, 2010

I've got a loop which is able to echo out how complete a process is after each loop (e.g says 25% if the loop has 4 elements and has run once through). Is there any way I can print characters, perhaps a progress bar? I was thinking of using the percentage as a count or something and using.

I got told off for including code from work here.
