General :: Want To Make Linux Distro Occupy Previous Window OS Space

Jan 30, 2011

When I first started with Fedora I tried a dual boot situation to see if Fedora 13 was going to meet my needs. After being totally satisfied I deleted Windows from my computer. How can I get Fedora to also occupy all the disk space Windows once occupied? I have a 15 GB USB drive to work with if needed.

General :: Best Distro For Teaching Yourself Linux?

Feb 4, 2010

Another profoundly metaphysical conundrum comes to mind..If you had to recommend a stable yet fairly 'bare bones' distro to an intermediate computer user so that he/she could take it and build upon, add to, enhance and what-have-you to something lean and customised AND during the creation of which the process would be highly instructive yet not prove insurmountably time-consuming and frustrating, which distro would you suggest? I'm thinking in terms of something like a very much dumbed-down version of Linux from Scratch, perhaps.What would make for the best auto-didactic Linux distro for a non-supernerd to mess around with?

General :: Which Minimalistic Linux Distro?

Sep 23, 2010

I have this project going where I want to have a ton of tiny Virtual Machines running in a simulated network on a single host computer. The various virtual machines will serve a broad variety of purposes, but they will all be very small virtual machines (low-memory, no X11) and will usually only have one or two additional applications installed on each of them aside from the base system.

So, what I want is a super-lightweight Linux distro that provides only a simple base system (no package management needed, or even compiling tools) which I can clone and modify slightly for each machine's purpose.ttylinux seemed like a promising option. The downside I found, though, is that the ttylinux install uses ext2, so every time a system shuts down improperly, I end up losing 10+ files to lost+found.

General :: What Distro Of Linux Will Work With Broadcom BCM4312

Sep 25, 2010

I am trying to start using linux, and am new, so sorry if this is dumb. I started out trying Ubuntu, but that didn't work. After that I had tried Mint, and had several problems besides the Network Connector. Now I'm trying Fedora, but if that doesn't work is there a different Linux distro that will work?

Ubuntu Installation :: Previous Linux Version Boot

May 14, 2011

I upgraded from 10.10 to 11.04. on boot up I sometimes get only the purple screen freeze and sometimes I actually get to the grub menu. I select the generic kernel and get the black screen freeze. same if I do the recovery mode. but if I get lucky on a reboot and can get the grub menu up again, I select previous linux version and then select 2.6.35 generic and it will boot into 11.04 with Unity. So, how can I get this thing to boot normal with the correct kernel version? I am fairly new to this linux world and don't want to have to go back to windows if I can help it.

General :: Any Alternative Source Distro To Gentoo Without Space Taken Up By /user / Portage?

Sep 8, 2010

I sort of asked this question in the arch linux forums since I was interested in arch but I still have yet to get a response (maybe it's too early).I wan't something like gentoo but without taking up unnecessary space like gentoo's portage does (/usr/portage/). I find that to be a serious flaw with gentoo. Yes you can use squashfs-unionfs to help but it requires some work especially when something goes wrong with portage.I was thinking about arch but can you use it completely as a source based distro? Some people seem to have said it requires scripting and some work from the user. I wan't something that'll do it for me so I can set it and forget it.

I heard about source mage linux and exherbo but I'm not sure what to think. I'm thinking about trying arch linux and source mage but perhaps there's other distro's I don't know about. I'd really like some suggestions.

General :: Would You Make Your Own Distro?

Aug 22, 2010

I think that the logical conclusion of the greater self-reliance of Linux users is wanting to make one's own distro entirely. Using that Linux From Scratch distro, probably--at least if you're not a programmer. (I am guessing that if one knows the right programming languages, one doesn't even need LFS.) In an ideal world where we had the time and will for this, most or all of us would make our own distros. I'm interested, but it's much more work than I'm willing to do. Am I right?

OpenSUSE :: Keyboard Shortcut To Switch To Previous Window

Apr 20, 2010

This is probably a silly question but I couldn't yet find the answer and I guess someone else must have solved it already, so... How can I activate the keyboard shortcut ALT+SHIFT+TAB to switch to the previous window (As opposite to ALT+TAB)?I'm using gnome, I went to the keyboard shortcut panel, but I didn't know how to add a new action (one that is not already there).I also use another distro (Mandriva) on another computer, also with gnome and that key combination is already there, which is very useful for me.

Software :: Ideal Linux Distro For Intel Dot Station PC

Aug 1, 2010

My cousin has a Intel dot station PC, with 128 mb RAM and 4 GB Hdd. He wants to discard it, but I think he can use Linux and make best use of the machine. Am i right ? XP is now running fine on it. But I don't think it can last long. Can someone suggest an excellent Linux distro that can do the internet, open office apps with this capacity. And is SLAX good enough ? I have tried DSL, puppy linux, mepis, lupu, peppermint etc. but NONE of them installed properly.

Ubuntu Networking :: WUSB600N - Modify The "os/linux/" Like I Described In My Previous Message

Mar 6, 2010

i have downloaded the RT3572 driver from railink and put it in my home folder executed the following then:

Code: bunzip2 2009_1222_RT3572_LinuxSTA_V2.3.0.0.tar.bz2
Code: tar -xvf 2009_1222_RT3572_LinuxSTA_V2.3.0.0.tar

no problems here I have modified the 2 files as instructed:


4) add the device and vendor id "{USB_DEVICE(0x1737,0x0079)}" between the "#ifdef RT35xx" and "#endif // RT35xx //" in the file "common/rtusb_dev_id.c"

5) modify the "os/linux/" like I described in my previous message

no problems here: next step according to all instructions: sudo make and sudo make install, trips me up, i get "no targets specified and no makefile found" probably a basic mistake somewhere here, but my knowledge of the command line is zilch

General :: Which Files Are Taking Space To Make The Partition 68% Used

Jun 8, 2011

I have some confusion about one of my partition and the space it is taking. df -h output is given below;

# df -h
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
494G 18G 452G 4% /


above information is showing that /var/lib/mysql partition total size is 379 GB and it is 68% used. However when I execute command du -sh /var/lib/mysql it shows following output.

# du -sh /var/lib/mysql
45G /var/lib/mysql

Now I want to know what files are taking space to make the partition 68% used. I want to list down all files in that partition with size.

Ubuntu Installation :: Remove Add That Bit Of Space To New Distro

Jun 7, 2011

So this morning i booted Xubuntu in an effort to replace Fedora 15, basically just getting a feel for all sorts of different distros. although it was slightly more confusing that the others i've tried on install because i had to manually configure partitions, and prompt didn't give a description really of which was which, so i took a shot in the dark at which was fedora to overwrite, and hoped i didn't remove win7 so all went well, but it appears Fedora is still in my system, using roughly 50GB still, it won't boot. but it is in the boot menu, and i can see it from Xubuntu. Can i remove this to add that bit of space to my new distro? or would i have to reinstall xubuntu Seems to be mostly just old folders and such, but it's being shown as a device. I don't see it in Gparted i don't think.

General :: How Can I Make Window Span Over Both Monitors

Oct 10, 2010

How can I make a window span over both monitors? I have the monitors configured using the KDE monitor setting tool. I need specifically full-screen (for presentation purposes) or at least a maximized window. Kwin insists on locking the window on one desktop.interestingly it really is Kwin preventing me to do this. If I get rid of KDE and just launch a plain X session, the window maximizes correctly.

General :: Division Of Logical Memory Space In To User Space And Kernel Space

Logical Memory Space of 4GB is divided in to 3GB User Space and 1GB Kernel Space. Always. Correct?

1. How can we change it? (just changing value of PAGE_OFFSET is okay?)

2. If system have only 256MB of memory (embedded system) and suppose Kernel Modules eat away all the memory during boot. User space will be left will no memory. Is this case possible?

General :: Make System Boot Up Into Window Manager-less X Session?

Dec 30, 2010

I am setting up a thin client boot (over NFS) with x2go thinclient. So far everything works, the client boots over PXE, mounts the NFS dir on the server. But the x2go thinclient system does not install properly. I end up with a CLI prompt, to log in. It does not start X, not does it start the x2go client in a window managerless X session.

X2go is, in case you don't know it yet, a cool Linux X terminal session system, very much like Nomachines NXserver. I like it very much, since my experience, especially with freenx has not been good.

Now I am missing some Linux knowhow here: I know that after startup (the CLI part), the display manager is started (GDM or KDM), which starts the X server and shows the graphical login. Now since X2go does not properly setup and there is no documentation about the thinclient part, I will set it up myself.

I need the system to boot up, startx and then immediately start an X program (x2goclient), without having to log in before.

I found that putting a .xsession file in to the users home dir causes that script to be run when you invoke startx.But when I put startx in a script that runs as the last one in the runlevel (as in S05startx), it does not run at all.

What is the proper way to run X and a program on it directly, right at startup?
