so I went to the Ubuntu launchpad and searched for it, and here it is. Someone has already submitted a patch and the bug status has been changed to "fix released."From reading the comments, I've learned the fix is only in Gnome 2.30, and Ubuntu 10.04 uses 2.28 (I think, maybe 2.26) (If it is possible to update to a new version of Gnome, please let me know). Luckily, someone also submitted a patch on the bug report as a temporary fix. Unfortunately, I don't know how to apply the patch. I couldn't find much information regarding it online, and the only stuff I did find applied to using Gnome's git hub.
I just want to upgrade my Slackware 13.1 kernel (18.104.22.168) to the latest stable kernel from kernel.org (22.214.171.124). I have never done anything like this and I am a Linux newbie, so I would appreciate a "Kernel Patching for Dummies" version if possible. I did do a search on this forum and most of what I read was over my head. I found an FAQ on kernelnewbies.org on "How To Apply A Patch" but when I attempted what they suggested, it said it couldn't find the file to patch at line 5 and asked me which file to patch. So I CTRL-Z'd out of there and came here. Here's what I tried:
I am trying to compile the iscsi-target software SCST. It wants me to apply a patch to my Linux kernel in order to allow for certain performance gains. The problem is I still new to Linux development. Where do I begin? How do I apply the patch? Do I need to recompile the kernel? I am running Ubuntu 10.04.3 amd64
I am running 6 servers on RHEL4.4 with oracle databases and application on HP ML370 hardware. Since initial installation, I have not applied any patch updates. I would like to start practising Patch Management and would like to know how to start and how to do it. For security reasons, I am not allowed to connect the servers to RHN or RHS hence will appreciate other options of acquiring patch updates in bundled form say on a monthly basis.
I have compiz fusion and an ATI card (FGLRX driver) installed. This means that my windows are painfully slow to resize/min/max. This has bugged me for awhile, but apparently someone found a fix, as specified in: 107_fedora_dont_backfill_bg_none.patch
[Basically, they commented out most of a function].
how do I apply this patch? It causes problems for people using KDE on intel cards, but that won't bother me since I'm AMD on gnome.
VLC is my favorite multimedia player, but when I tray to play any video show with RMVB extension it doesn't work so good ! I mean not as much as if I used any other software ( like for Example: Totem! ) . so I've made a search on the internet and found a patch that can solve the problem ( from here & here ).
I'm having problems to install SCST in Fedora 11.I'm not able to apply the kernel patch because there isn't a file called drivers/scsi/scsi_lib.c in the /usr/src/kernels/126.96.36.199-167.fc11.i868.PAE.Does anybody have an idea on how to proceed?
Just wondering if this is possible and if so, how? I want to be able to apply the following patch: [URL]
It is apparently a test fix for the touchpad on the newer Dell laptops. I want to test drive it a bit. Otherwise, if someone could point me in the right direction as to custom compile a Fedora 13 x64 disc including this patch, that would be great.
I have zero internet access on my laptop via wired or wireless connection, and need to apply this patch, but have pretty much no idea where to start.Running vanilla FC13 x86_64. Whats the easiest way to go about this, considering its hard work for me to download packages and their dependencies at college (where I am posting from now) and installing them at home, it could take days.
Running 10.04 very nicely, but I have applied a cursor theme - Comixcursor - which appears fine in my Gnome apps, but does not in my KDE apps, i.e. Amarok, and I get the default cursor. Each time I restart my lappy, I have to go into the KDE System Settings to apply it again.
I'm running Karmic on a Dell Mini 10v (Intel Atom) netbook, generally with very few problems and I've been happy with it. Recently I've had problems with suspend and wake when I close / open the lid - wicd no longer finding any networks, password prompt no longer appears, that sort of thing. A few days ago an icon popped up in the panel which appeared to do nothing, but mousing over it provided the following message:
"Session active, not inhibited, screen idle. If you can see this text, your display server is broken and you should notify your distributor. [URL]..Following the link, the blog of Richard Hughes appears to quite carefully describe the issue and then provides a patch (or two). However, being rather a n00b I have no idea what to do with either of the blocks of code he supplies - "man patch" in my terminal brings up "no manual entry for patch".
I am having with CentOS5.4 and Pirut?The update system is telling me I have a Pirut update, but when I go to apply it, the system complains about dependency issues with rhn-setup-gnome. I have searched high and low for the solution to this but haven't found it yet.I have found some hacks, but I am hesitant on messing with the integrity of the system just to complete the update.
I'm trying to install a patch but when I copy it into terminal I get message " /home/john/patch-modules_v62-opensuse.sh 'vmware-7.1.3-2.6.37-rc5.patch' not found. copy it to the current '/home/john' directory. Exiting" But I have it in my home directory!
I'm having problem in Ubuntu 10.04 in applying extra graphics effect.I thing I have done some wrong setting in compiz setting manager and now I'm not able to set to default.Whenever now I'm trying to apply extra effects from appearance window it shows Desktop effects could not be enabled.
I have a monitor with oversaturated red (HP LP2475w). I am able to apply ICC profile to various apps like GIMP and Firefox and Gnome. But I'd like to apply it to everything - because e.g. Flash animations in Firefox are rendered by Flash and don't use ICC. So, can I apply it to whole X?
to all the pdf's in a directory and save each line of output to a text file. i.e. i want to collect each line containing "DOI" from every pdf in a text file. I am unable to understand bash scripting enough to write a for loop for this.
On my Ubuntu 11.04x64 server, I have service accounts running which do not log in and do not have home directories. These service accounts are responsible for running processes which are invoked as services.When these services created new files, I need them to be created with the permissions 664 (UMASK 002).I edited the /etc/profile umask setting to reflect this. I see that now my user account creates files which reflect this new umask setting, but the service accounts do not when I manually created files using their accounts (sudo -u serviceaccount touch newfile).
my linux box the device node for my printer is by default setup as the following: crw-rw---- 1 root lp 189, 1 Apr 3 07:45 /dev/bus/usb/001/002 This causes cups to not print at all. The Hp backend (HPLIP) fails because of these permissions. How do I change it so that it's crw-rw--rw 1 root lp 189, 1 Apr 3 07:45 /dev/bus/usb/001/002. Ie I would like 666 file permission on that node.
I am working on wsn security. I need to include the leach protocol as my model is hierarchial. I have found many threads about patching leach in ns2.27..But i need to know how can i include patch of leach in ns2.34 in ubuntu 9.10?
IMO it really is the big thing! The patch being talked about is designed to automatically create task groups per TTY in an effort to improve the desktop interactivity under system strain. Mike Galbraith wrote the patch, which is currently in its third version in recent weeks, after Linus Torvalds inspired this idea. In its third form, this patch only adds 224 lines of code to the kernel's scheduler while stripping away nine lines of code, thus only 233 lines of code are in play. Tests done by Mike show the maximum latency dropping by over ten times and the average latency of the desktop by about 60 times.
