I'll try to give out as much details as possible but this issue is very troubling. I used to work with maverick until the final natty xubuntu went online the other day.
So I'm now working with Xubuntu 11.04 amd64 Since i started working with it im experiencing on my PC a serious overheat causing the computer to shut itself down and to my LED screen on the mother board to report more then 100C degrees of the cpu... this never happened before, and after some testing i found out that i only happens in full screen opengl game (Enemy territory- shuts itself after 6 minutes) and full screen flash movie playing (such as mega video- shuts itselfs after 10-15 minutes). I don't use stock cooling im using a arctic freezer 64 pro. and i clean my computer and put new thermal grease every couple of months (i also did it again after the problem started).
now for the specs: I'll just add that the only other thing changed is the fglrx drivers which i now use the 11.4 catalyst.

I have installed Ubuntu from scratch several times since this problem started in Ubuntu 9*. It happens over and over again, and nothing seems to help. My grasphic card is Nvidia 8500 GT. No matter what I try, to use no hardware drivers or use the recommended driver for Ubuntu my system shuts down without warning. I have used Ubuntu since 2004 and this is the worst bug I have ever experienced! Is there a way to get rid of this thermal awareness program? Everything functioned fine until this stupid heat problem occurred. I want to turn it off but not to leave Ubuntu. Lasdt night I was busy installing WinXP when my computer suddenly turned off, and Ubuntu could not be started again. Only show a screen with black and white parts and no desktop. Thats why I had to install Ubuntu again, and it turned off today while I use Firefox. Its the worst bug I have ever experienced.
After I upgraded to 10.04 using the prompt for an upgrade. Ubuntu failed to boot. PC starts but during boot hangs after ubuntu symbol and screen goes black and PC overheats. Same problem when booting off CD. I removed HDD and rigged it up as a USB) but can't read the the disk in windows. The PC works fine using old windows HD. What do I do?
Im trying to overclock my system and I cannot find a conclusive answer to this issue.It appears that I need to compile a custom kernel, is there a way around this?So where do I go from here without compiling a custom kernel and removing powernow-k8 from it?Is there a workaround to this? There is no setting in my bios either. ECS NFROCE3-A system board.
Does anyone know of a way to over-clock the main CPU of a PC, through software means, on Ubuntu/Debian?And if so, how would I do it? This is for an old PC by the way (Pentium 3).There were several apps (like CPUCooL) I could use through Windows, but I can't seem to find any through Google for Linux.
Many CPUs come with promotion that they can be overclocked and play games faster.The black edition of Phenom II X4/X6 can be overclocked up to 5GHz.Linux boasts of using minimum hardware requirements.So, does it mean overclocking is needless for linux?Many people said overclocking can harm your CPU, but those who did it said that as long as you can make sure its temperature is not overheating, it is worthy to do it to enhance your PC's performance.
I'm getting close to ordering the components for a new machine based on the AMD Deneb quad core and had one last question.I'd like to try a little careful overclocking, not only for the performance increase but also to learn how. Nothing extreme, no gaming, just whatever I can get with good stability with the stock heatsink and fan.I was going to get 8GB on 2x4GB strips but they are all CAS latency 9. The MB has 4 slots for a total of 16GB capacity. Would I be better off going with 4x2GB strips and try to get a lower latency strip like maybe 7?
I installed on this laptop two OS : Windows XP SP3 with drivers for M11 from Toshiba download site Fedora 14 64 bits I have no problem running Windows but sometimes when I run Fedora I hear fan starting to run at full speed then computer hangs. When this occurs, I must power off it using switch then reboot and I lost my work. I try to run Memtest86 during a full night and I did not get any error or hang.
Is there somebody who already installed Fedora 14 on Toshiba Tecra M11? kernel is 184.108.40.206-74.fc14.x86_64 and my graphic card worked fine with hardware acceleration out of the box.
I have a problem with CPU frequency at overclocking.Normally the processor is clocked at 2.7 GHz (13.5x200), Debian detects it correctly. When I overclock it (in the BIOS of course) to 3.3 (11x300), BIOS at booting shows everything correctly.
Using coolbits allows for me to try to change it but it refuses to accept it, and even when i run it as root it still just acts like nothing has changed. It's not my laptop maker since i can overclock my gpu using rivatuner on windows so it's clearly not them trying to restrict me. I was attempting to restore teh clocks back to what the factory settings were from nvidia and not the underclocked settings that the oem put on it for the 3d settings and then reducing the 2d by ~10% to help it run cooler except when gaming.Has anyone been able to successfully use coolbits in squeeze? Or is there another nvidia overclockign tool out there besides nvclock since my gpu is apparently too new to work with it and i'm not going to risk it.
Why i cant change from 800x480 to 1024x600, that this model of EEE pc doesnt support anything higher than 800x480 at the 10:1 ratio...
Firstly my question is, is it ACTUALLY possible to 'overclock' this type of netbook to run a higher res?
Im running ubtuntu netbook remix 10.04 and am new to linux (again, so sorry) so be nice, and ive tried getting my head around this 'sudo' stuff, and the xorg.conf file (which is nowhere to be found) and ive even tried a program calld astray but im pretty sure ive exhausted my patience as trying to self-teach . . .
And ive also tried to much around with xrandr or whatever that command was.. but i cant really get my head around it, and it kept telling me the resolution didnt exist ect...
I'm new to Linux, so I decided to try using Wubi to get started. THe problem is, when it finished installing 10.04, I got this message: OSError: [Errno 13] Permission denied: u'C:\ubuntu\install\ubuntu-10.04-desktop-amd64.iso' Is there any way around this? It might just be that overly restrictive thing called Vista (which I have the bad luck to be using). I was considering getting a USB drive for Ubuntu anyway..
I recently got interested with with OS.. So I downloaded wubi in Ubuntu website. I opted for the Ubuntu Netbook Edition as am using a lappy. However, halfway through finishing download I got an error. The log shows:
What is the difference between the Ubuntu Installer for windows and the Ubuntu CD image? If I use the ubuntu installer for windows, does it have the capability to partition my drive, will it enable to share files with windows etc or is it just a way not to have to burn a CD. Just curious, the exact details of the installation files were not made clear on the website. Note: Windows Version: XP, 32bit, SP3. I have not partitioned anything yet.
I'm currently running off of my live-cd, and after spending 4 hours of my life trying to fix this myself, i figured someone out here has to know how to help me. Basically, i wanted to try linux, then liked it enough to decide to put on one of my usb-drives (320g adata nobility NH92), and i couldn't get it to boot anything but windows w/o the live-cd, which would then boot the live-cd, lol, in other words, i couldn't get it to boot at all from the external, even though i had changed the setting in my bios to boot from usb first, and tried manually selecting boot from usb and all that fun stuff.
Sooo... eventually i decided it might be a problem with the bootloader, and while i'm not exactly sure at this point what i have done to my computer, all i can successfully boot is the live cd. When I try to boot w/o the live cd, whether i try to boot from my internal (windows) drive, or external, all i get is a device not found error.I think i could fix it if i had windows recovery cd's (i'm running xp, btw), or installation cds, but... unfortunately, they died in a terrible accident. So i have no cd's at all for windows. :/
I have been running Ubuntu 10.04 under Windows 7 (Is this call WUBI?) without any problems for a while. My other machines only run Ubuntu (9.04 & 10.04). I decided to give it a try to the latest Ubuntu 10.10. After going through the successful installation and then rebooting, I am getting the following error message once I select 'Ubuntu' in the boot up menu right after the BIOS screen: Booting ' Ubuntu 10.10, kernel 2.6.35-25-generic'
I'm wondering if this is even possible. I've searched high and low and have yet to find and answer to this particular setup.
The setup: Router is in another building. Desktop connected by WiFi Laptop connected by WiFi Both the Desktop and the Laptop are in the same building together. About 5' apart.
SSH server is setup on Desktop FreeNX client is setup on Laptop
So they can connect just fine via WiFi for remote desktop control of the Desktop from the Laptop (so SSH and FreeNX are working).Is it possible to connect the 2 pc's directly to each other by Ethernet cable AND transfer files between them by Ethernet while still being connected to the Internet by WiFi on them both?Or would the WiFi have to be disabled while using the Ethernet connection?Neither has a Gigabit Ethernet NIC so I know it would at least require a crossover cable or another router to connect the 2 by Ethernet cable.The idea behind all this is to be able to transfer files between computers quickly by Ethernet while the computers are still busy doing other things on the Internet by WiFi.
I've been trying to find what would be the lightest ubuntu or ubuntu based distribution, I have an older PC I'd like to get up and running again, and would prefer something that works pretty quickly on it (for basic web browsing and other things) the specs are:
1. I accidentally wrecked a previous Ubuntu installation so I decided to re-install via the Ubuntu disk. Unfortunately Ubuntu doesn't let me override previous Ubuntu installations...
2. Ubuntu Maverick Meerkat is due to released in about 3 weeks. I want to install it via a clean install.
3. So can anyone tell me how to remove both Ubuntu partitions safely. I am currently running WinVista with Ubuntu Lucid Lynx. I know I have to use something like this to erase GRUB2. Can anyone give me a good tutorial?
The scenario is as follows - I will be moving across the country and my desktop will stay here powered and online, while I move with a laptop. I need a way to connect to the desktop for file streaming(music and movies) as well as using the virtual machines. I have thought about SSH and VNC.I need something failsafe. That's priority one. I won't be around to fix it if it breaks. I can set the computer to come on in the BIOS at a certain time if the power went out. But if I can get in remotely the whole setup is useless.SSH only provides terminal use, correct? So if I chose that route I would be able to access the computer via command line and play music and movies with mplayer and such, correct? But I would not be able to run the virtual machines? Because there will be no GUI, right?
I have been playing with Vinagre and Vino through the host and guest of a virtual machine and I cannot get it to connect. Is there a better application? x11vnc? I have forwarded port 5900 on the router and have upnp enabled. Got a better remote desktop suggestion?I would like to run this setup headless.(no monitor) I also would like to run it without a gpu if that is possible to make it more energy efficient.Both computers are 64 bits and will be running Ubuntu 10.10 and soon 11.04.Are these crappy ideas to begin with? Should I go another route to get my files and access the virtual machines?
After a reinstall of 10.10, I am able to turn on file sharing and so I set up a shared folder.
Windows Vista can see this folder but in my network place, there is only one icon, and it's a "Windows Network" icon. Upon clicking on that, I can see the local network, "Rompus Room".
When I click on Rompus Room, nothing happens for a while, then I get a message saying, "Opening "ROMPUS ROOM". Then I get the final message, "Unable to mount location", followed by, "Failed to retieve share list from server"
