Ubuntu :: Evolution Using Lots Of Memory On 10.10

Jan 17, 2011

I upgraded to 10.10 a few months ago. All was well until a week or so ago, my PC was incredibly slow to respond to anything - mouse clicks, etc. After investigating, I found Evolution using 90% of my RAM - I have 4G. I restarted the PC, started up Evolution and everything was better for a very short while. I then found Evolution using 2Gb+ again later that day. I have noticed that immediately upon startup of Evolution, watching top, evolution uses 900Mb+ Virt and 450+Mb Res. If I open a single email, it jumps to 1300+ Virt, 500+ Res. The more I read a few more emails, the more it jumps.

I have updated everything possible via Synaptic. I only have a handful of accounts - probably 3 POP3 that download to local folders, and about 5 IMAP (GMail) based ones. Nothing excessive IMHO. Now, Evolution is basically useless. All I can do is open it, check email, and close it as soon as possible. I'd rather not switch to another email client - I did that back in 10.04 when I switched off Thunderbird in favor of Evolution because of all the Evolution integration in Ubuntu/Gnome.

Fedora :: Slow Down High Nautilus Memory Usage After Loading Folder With Lots Of Images?

Nov 22, 2010

I was browsing my folder with lots of images, after finished i close nautilus and i notice that my computer became slow, so i'll check it with system monitor and had found that nautilus are using almost 100mb of ram (opening 4 tabs). I'm not sure if this was normal or not because i try to reopen the same folder with pcmanfm and it only consumes less than 20mb of ram (opening 4 tabs).
here's the screenshot from system monitor .

Ubuntu :: Copying Lots And Lots Of Data (and Preserving Emblems)?

Oct 26, 2010

I am currently in the process of moving around 20TB of data from one server to another. Security is not a concern, since the data are freely available to anyone on our network anyway. There are a couple of things that I'm trying to decide on:

(1) protocol choice

Of all the choices I have--nfs, ftp, scp, rsync, samba--has anyone done any benchmarking to show which would be the fastest/most robust transfer protocol? I know nfs has slow write speeds for synchronous transfers. Asynchronous would be faster, but less robust. I'm leaning toward rsync since it performs md5sums to confirm the file transfers. (Remember if there's a 1 in a billion chance that a byte will get corrupted, then I'll have 20,000 corrupt bytes in the transfer.)

(2) Nautilus emblems

We use emblems in Nautilus to categorize files. The old and the new server have the same directory structure.Is there any way to copy the Nautilus emblems from the old server to the new server. What I want is that if a user had marked a particular file with a star on the old server, then that file would be marked with a star on the new server when he/she logs in.

Ubuntu :: Lots Of Bugs Going On With 10.04?

May 20, 2010

Recently while at school, my trackpad stopped working completely. When I log out to my login screen it works, and as well as kde. I use compiz btw in gnome.[SOLVED I THINK] --> My boot splash doesn't show up until its fully loaded and won't show in the correct resolution.Every so often, the UI flips out and won't let me click menus or text fields or use my keyboard at all.

The trackpad is a setting i bet. BUT I looked everywhere for a setting that is making it not work.[SOLVED I THINK] --> The splash is ok, I'm not worried about it, but I wished it looked nicer on my computer D:The UI freak out is annoying and trouble some as it happens randomly in use.

I am on a laptop:

HP Pavilion dv9000
Intel Centrino Core 2 Duo 1.73GHz
NVIDIA GeForce Go 7600
2GB of memory

ps - I am not a fan of HP, Intel, or NVIDIA, this laptop was free so not complaining about not having AMD or ATi or another laptop brand

Ubuntu :: Installing Lots Of New Users At A Distance?

Apr 22, 2010

I want to install Ubuntu on many different new user's systems from a distance. I am looking for the simplest cleanest way to pull this off. These systems will only boot Ubuntu....no dual boot systems. Plus, I need a way to accommodate different size Hard drives such that the entire hard drive is used. There will be a novice computer user on site who can insert a cd or dvd for me and boot the machine.

Ubuntu :: Lots Of Errors / Python2.6 / Import CommandNotFound?

Jan 13, 2010

When executing different programs varying from the Ubuntu Software Manager to pstotxt and lots of other programs I get tons of errors that have to do with Python2.6, whatever it is. I think it got corrupted since my netbook turned of while installing some (Dutch) language packs.The smaller problem, is that the language packs failed to install properly, and I can see some Dutch sentences between the English ones sometimes...The major prolem, is that somehow a lot of programs won't work anymore, mainly terminal programs. pstotxt is one of any examples. Installing software doesn't always work because of these errors.

This is the output when I want to use pstotxt to convert a .pdf to .txt file:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/lib/command-not-found", line 8, in <module>
import CommandNotFound
File "/usr/lib/python2.6/dist-packages/CommandNotFound/__init__.py", line 1, in <module>

Ubuntu :: Wine Gives Lots Of Errors And Runs Really Slowly?

Jan 17, 2010

I try to do anything in wine, including winecfg, I get a lot of errors, and the program runs really slowly. Here are the errors

fixme:heap:HeapSetInformation (nil) 1 (nil) 0
fixme:win:RegisterDeviceNotificationA (hwnd=0x147f30, filter=0x84e9e4,flags=0x00000001),

fixme:advapi:RegisterTraceGuidsW (0x100778a, 0x100a060, {485e7de8-0a80-11d8-ad15-505054503030}, 1, 0x33fe28, code....

I get this error for every program, so I do not think it is an error with the program. If fixing this will change anything like making it faster any help would be appreciated. Oh, I also can only run a few programs. I can't run things like WMP or itunes, and I think this may be the cause.

Ubuntu Servers :: Filesystem Lots Of Small Files?

Feb 15, 2010

i have a question about the best choice for a filesystem: We have in our company a productive webserver running debian with nginx webserver to serve images. The number is about 15 million, they are around 2kb or 3kb of size each and they are stored under some subdir in /home with a hashed subdirectory tree which is 2 leves deep. the images are copied with nfs from some other machine time to time. We get high load when this copying is running. Currently we are using ext3, and considering moving to jfs, cause its relativly low load impact, but i am still courios about the performance. I think serving lots of images is often practiced thing, so i would be interested what others are using as filesystem in this scenario, or if someone could make a recommendation for our case.

Ubuntu Networking :: Tcpdump Shows Lots Of Activity

Ubuntu :: Moving Lots Of Files Around - Nautilus Freezes?

Jan 26, 2011

I use nautilus and its awful. The only good thing are the tabs and the bookmarks on the cons:

* it freezes now and then when moving lots of files.

* Slow to navigate while large amounts of data are moving or displaying.

* Slow presenting of files where there are a lot of them (it should only render whatever is in screen and maybe render a properly sized navigation bar. Anything else shouldnt freeze the client. Render at its once pace if at all. I dont move the scroll bar it shouldnt freeze

* It doesnt queue (meaning it moves everything at the same time instead of queueing stuff, what makes moving stuff take longer) .

Ubuntu Installation :: Installing On A Dual-boot With Lots Of DOS Volumes?

Feb 9, 2010

I have a DOS/Linux dual-boot system. After recently replacing the original motherboard (an Elitegroup P6VEM3, of all things!) with a salvaged Dell D300 motherboard, I'm preparing to replace the Red Hat 8 currently installed with a Ubuntu live CD that I've had for some time (but that wouldn't work at all on the old motherboard, for some reason) I have a question about the "partitioner" stage of the installer: I don't know what to do with my 5 DOS volumes. My hard drive is partitioned as follows (from the partitioner's report when I select manual mode; annotations in parentheses):

/dev/sda1 fat16 57MB 33MB (C:, "DOS")
/dev/sda5 fat16 106MB 33MB (D:, "STUFF")
/dev/sda6 fat16 633MB 121MB (E:, "APPLICATION")

Ubuntu :: Boot Screen Black With Lots Of Pixelated Garbage?

Aug 16, 2010

I tried to install a a custom splash screen using this guide [URL] and got as far changing the settings with Startup Manager. I found out that I didn't have an 'Appearance' tab so I reverted all the changes I've done in the 'Boot Options' tab. I then closed Startup Manager and rebooted back into linux. Now instead of seeing the purple Unbuntu screen, I see a black screen with a lot of pixelated garbage. Why I don't have the necessary tabs in Startup Manager to install a theme? I'm using a Macbook Pro 5,5.

Ubuntu Networking :: Philips SNU5600 Disconnects If Uploading Lots Of Data To NAS

Mar 19, 2011

I have a Philips SNU5600 wifi dongle. My wifi network isn't particularly strong, but it has always been reliable, even when downloading and uploading large files such as ISOs to the internet.

I recently bought a NAS, and when I run rsync or try and copy a large file (eg 6 gigs) to the NAS, the connection will eventually fail.

The error message in /var/log/debug is:


I have read elsewhere that this is a problem with the Minstrel algorithm, so I have tried disabling that by creating /etc/modprobe.d/80211.conf with the following line in it:


And when I reboot, I am able to run "cat /sys/module/mac80211/parameters/ieee80211_default_rc_algo" and the output is "pid".

However, in my /var/log/debug, there is still the line:


Here is the output from a few other commands for extra information:





- The problem has only been around since I got the NAS, and only happens when copying files TO the NAS. Downloading/uploading to internet doesn't cause the same problem.
- This problem happens on two machines both with the same wifi dongle.
- This problem doesn't happen on a laptop running the Intel iwl3945 driver, nor with machines connected via cables, so it is not the NAS which is at fault.

How to get a stable connection when backing up?

OpenSUSE :: Version Of Evolution - Running The Evolution Mail System Under Fedora - 15 / KDE

Jul 26, 2011

I've been running the Evolution mail system under Fedora-15/KDE for about a month now, and it has some very serious problems. I just noticed that it is available for SUSE, and figured that since KDE is the principal desktop supported by KDE the SUSE version may be fixed. Before I go through the very tedious process of getting the SUSE version to compile on Fedora, I'd like to know whether anyone has seen these problems with the SUSE version of Evolution:It ignores font control from the KDE Settings->Applications Appearance window, both KDE font control and GTK+ font control, also its own internal font control window.

It has trouble sending messages to an SMTP server, sometimes taking a l-o-n-g time, sometimes timing out. This can be temporarily cured by restarting it It crashes when a filter attempts to refile an outgoing message. It often asks if I want to recover messages that have never been lost. It often locks up receiving mail from a remote POP3 server. I can live with these, except for items 1 and 2, since I have workarounds. If you are fairly sure that you have not seen these problems with the SUSE version of Evolution

Fedora :: Error While Fetching Email. Evolution Version: Evolution 2.28.0

In the inbox of evolution, there were about 200 emails. There are maybe 5K emails in the server, I guessed. I'm not sure whether it's the problem that there's one email in the server too big, so the evolution can not fetch it. The error of evolution is: error while fetching email.

Debian :: Noob Messes Up On Apt-get Now Lots Of Segmentation Faults?

Feb 12, 2010

I have been running happily on Knoppmyth R5F27 (on Debian GNU 4.0/Etch) for a good long time. Everything has been operating well. My kids get to record their Mythbusters. Life is good. Tonight, though, I tried to make things better. And that was the mistake.

I read that we could use our PS3 to watch videos on Hulu. But, I needed a kind of proxy server or something to mask that I was using the PS3 browser. So, I thought I would install squid on the myth box.

I first tried apt-get install squid But, that didn't quite work. So, at a friend's suggestion, I ran: apt-get update Which had problems, too. Still, being a noob, I reran the apt-get install squid and a bunch of stuff came down. It has problems, too.

So, I turned back to apt-get update and realized there was a problem in sources.list. I updated it to have a more current repository and received the update. Then I realized that the apt-get for squid was pulling down resources for lenny. I struggled trying to kill the install for Squid. Failed. And then rebooted just to see if I have problems.

And I do. Mythbackend won't start. The command to do so produces a segmentation fault. Ditto for mythfrontend and mythtv-setup. I don't know what to do. Can someone help me roll this back to a stable setup of Etch? If you want to see my (very messy) attempt to install squid and update the system you can look at[URL]..

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrade Wants To Remove Lots Of Packages (possibly Depending On Plymouth)?

Oct 5, 2010

last week I encountered the following problem: The update manager suggests a distribution upgrade (strange enough since I already have 10.4 and 10.10 is not released yet). The even worse part is that 24 packages shall be removed from my system, including acpi, cryptsetup, network-manager, nvidia-current, plymouth-x11, samba and wine. About 5 weeks ago I experimented (without success) with disabling plymouth because I wanted textmode during booting. I found some warnings that one should not completly remove plymouth because lots of dependencies including cryptsetup (which is vital to my system). So I did not remove plymouth (a look in Synaptic confirms this), but I may have changed some settings concerning plymouth.I am not sure what this upgrade is about.
