Ubuntu :: Using Resources Of Other Pc Across Network

Dec 20, 2010

I got a fairly powerful media system standing in the living room. Most of the time it is idle, maybe playing some music. At the same time I got a pc in my office that is less resourceful. Sometimes I'll run programs through ssh with the -XC command. This way a program will seemingly run on my office pc, while it is actually running on the media system. However:

- 1 Sound doesn't transfer to the office pc.

- 2 When using a program I need to constantly be aware where I save my files. Sometimes it is located on the remote computer, sometimes it isn't.

Is there an alternative way to use the resources on the media system? E.g. run a program that is stored on the office pc and process it on the media system?

Both systems run Ubuntu (office 10.04 - media system 10.10).

OpenSUSE Network :: Network / DNS - Can't Access Any Internet Resources Or Router

Jul 30, 2010

I'm having a strange problem with my network connection/DNS. I turn computer the on and it recognizes and connects to wireless or wired but I can't access any Internet resources or my router. If I ping the default gateway, I get no response and I get DNS errors from any network services that run at start up. If I stop and start the network daemon then it all works fine until the next time I turn on my laptop. It does this for both wireless and wired connection.

I've tried to edit the network interface information in YaST but it says that configuration is handled by knetworkmanager and I have no idea where that information is accessed. I should point out that it all worked fine until I tried to connect to open WAP at my school and couldn't so I connected to the wired network. Next morning I had this problem when connecting to my home network. My questions are 1. What could be the cause of this error and 2. where does one configure the network interfaces when using knetworkmanager

CentOS 5 Networking :: Can Ping Server Network But Cannot Share Resources

Feb 15, 2010

I have OpenVPN running successfully on a CentOS Linux server. All remote clients connect without a problem and can ping the server LAN ( . The server address is All network shares on the server are available to the remote clients via SAMBA shares and this works well.The problem is that I am unable to get the remote clients to access services on the LAN clients. For example, there is a webserver running on a Windows XP PC (on the server LAN @ with no firewall enabled. The remote VPN clients can ping this webserver at, but cannot browse the webserver at [URL]. All clients on the server LAN can however browse the webserver. The remote clients are using Windows XP and VISTA with OpenVPN 2.1.1.

I am new to VPNs and networking, but from my research, it seems as if this may be a routing issue. I would appreciate any help you may give in getting the remote clients to access the services on the LAN clients (other than the server @

The server configuration is:

port 1194
proto tcp

Ubuntu :: Stardict Using All (cpu) Resources?

Dec 31, 2010

I just recently upgraded to 10.04 (LTS), and I have been using stardict app for a long time with nothing but success on each of my laptops anc omputers I have had over the past 5 or so years. However, now on one laptop after starting the stardict app, using panel the applet I create on my xfce4-panel (as per normal), and looking up a word (highlight and press shift key which i use for quick word search using stardict), the app begins using 100% cpu resources and I am forced to kill the process.

The problem is intermittent, meaning it only occurs half of the time I am using startdict, while the other half of the time it operates normally. I have been trying to see if there is some sort of pattern, perhaps other apps running at the time the problem occurs, but I have not noticed anything that looks suspect, since I generally fire up stardict after boot in and have had it happen (the problem) without even any other apps open (just testing to try and find some sort of pattern to locate the potential issue).

I use a standard set of dictionary files for each of my comps, and currently have stardict operating fine on 2 other laptops, both running 10.04, with the same set-up (xubu, same apps, and settings pretty much) and no indications of this problem on either (other) laptop.

Ubuntu :: System Resources On Desktop?

May 6, 2010

I don't know if anyone has used Damn Small Linux (dsl), but they've got a cool little system resource monitor builtin to the desktop on the latest version-- Not the old wmnet and wmcpu that they had before, and not the ones the come with ubuntu-- Attached is a screenshot, it's in the upper right corner outlined in red .

Was wondering if anyone knew the app that this was-- I checked their packages list and didn't see it, I don't know if they modified wmnet/wmcpu or something, but I think it'd be cool to have this on my desktop.Especially if it's from DSL, because that is a tiny distro that runs fast, it can't take up too much room.

Ubuntu :: Claims Not Enough Resources For Unity

Jun 2, 2011

I've been using 11.04 for a few weeks now on my laptop. All of a sudden this morning, when I boot, it tells me that my laptop doesn't have enough resources to run Unity, although I've been using it the whole time. It's dropped me back to the old interface. Does anyone know why it did this?

How can I set it back?

Ubuntu :: Resources Links Don't Work Any Longer?

Oct 23, 2010

Since I've moved the /home directory to a new mountpoint

(UUID=160b687f-3e30-472e-97c2-7fd6149ec2a0 /home ext4 nodev,nosuid 0 2 in the fstab menu)

I have troubles with the links on the places menu. all the links there that point to /home or to one of its subdirectories don't work any longer.

The links to usb drivers and other places work just fine.

I've tried reinstalling xdg and gnome-menu, but no success.

if I do cat .xsession-errors right after trying to click on one of the links in the menu this is what I see:

giulio@giulio:~$ cat .xsession-errors
/home/giulio: /home/giulio: is a directory

Ubuntu :: Java Consuming Resources 10.10 - 64bit?

After I reboot, my java process consumes 100% of the CPU then settles down to about 40% CPU and 12% memory, status sleeping (4 core AMD) I've removed the OpenJDK and installed Sun JRE but no difference. by comparison, Firefox with a lot of tabs is at 3% CPU and 5% memory. Is it better if I go to 10.04 LTS, 32 bit?

General :: Comparing Resources Using Top?

Apr 6, 2011

Fedora 15 Alpha

3861 user 20 0 904m 128m 33m S 0.7 6.4 1:11.52 xulrunner-bin
1323 user 20 0 1555m 95m 31m S 13.5 4.8 4:06.87 gnome-shell
3494 user 20 0 1028m 50m 21m S 12.8 2.5 1:43.32 evolution

I just wondering what is the difference between RES, SHR, and VIRT.

1) The VIRT always seems to be higher. Is this using the paging file system. (virtual memory on the harddisk, the swap memory)

2) Is the RES memory the actual physical RAM memory?

3) Is shared memory sharing memory with other processes?

4) Just a final question. As I am running on a HP Mini 210, memory and CPU is a resource I don't have a abundence of. So if was to compare for example 2 difference browsers i.e. firefox and midora. What should I brench mark between to 2 to find what one uses less resources?

Ubuntu :: Pidgin Randomly Hogging Resources / Freezes When Doing So

Feb 9, 2011

During random moments, pidgin will suddenly use up all of my processor, a large chunk of my ram (20% - 25% of 2 GB), and will become completely unresponsive. This lasts for maybe four or five minutes then returns to normal.Pidgin doesn't have any kind of terminal output when ran in a terminal, so I have no data to use that is of any help.

OpenSUSE :: Edit Resources In KPlato?

I was thinking of converting openproj to kplato, but I can't edit the resource I've added. Even when adding the resource all I could do was add the name and work type.

I didn't find anything in a google search, or at koffice.org/kplato, or in the deskop help.

How do I edit the initials, email, available... all the other resource fields?

Red Hat / Fedora :: Parameter Sent To Script That Are Resources?

Apr 1, 2011

i have 2 front ends that receive traffic (http server) and should run some scripts in crontab, some of the scripts should just being running by 1 server at a time (active one) and others should run on both. Regarding the http like is load-sharing i think i cant use heartbeat, right? heartbeat is just for active-stanby or can we use to a active-active as watchdog? i have a cisco css to load sharing the http, and i can make a watchdog script to the apache. Regarding the cron crontrol i was thinking to make a script that replaces the crontab file to whatever is the correct one.

When the heartbeat start what parameter is sent to the script that are resources? a start if active node and nothing if is the standby?allways start?how should i config the haresources to do it? what is the best way? i have other situation that is making a nfs server in solaris 10, i have 2 servers with shared disks ( sun array), can i use heartbeat to this too? it is possible to make it in such way that if i had i failover in nfs server the clients doesn't need to reconnect?

Debian :: Xorg Monopolizes Resources ?

Apr 20, 2010

For some reason after the computer is on and idle for a little while, xorg starts using all available CPU resources. When I come back to use the computer, the screensaver will either be running nice and smooth, or the screen will be black. Either way, I won't be able to get back into X. I'll ctrl+alt+F1 into the console (or ssh if it's still not responsive) and "top" shows me xorg is hogging all the available CPU. I'll kill -3 <xorg> and it the computer will come back to the kdm login screen. What the %^&*??? It's a little irritating. I'm using Bouncing Cows and Seti@home when idle, but both do their job and close when they detect a key press. Even via ssh when I already tried waking up the computer with a key press, it shows the screensaver closed and seti is idle.

I have Debian/Lenny installed with all the latest updates and ATI's driver installed with direct rendering enabled (350fps for the cows, >2000fps for glxgears). it's a Dell Inspiron 8600, 1.8GHz, 2GB Ram, 80GB HD, ATI 9600pro/128MB.

Software :: 2nd Node Tried To Take Over Resources But Failed

Sep 9, 2010

On a HA Cluster, the 2nd node noticed that the 1st node was down, but the first node wasn't down. This resulted in that the 2nd node tried to take over the resources but failed, because the resource was stil in use by the first node. This caused that the first node was left behind in a fuzzy state. I had no other choice to kill the heartbeat service, and reboot the server to solve the issue. There where no network issues, all hardware is ok. Are there any bugs know? Is there a way to avoid it from happening again?

Software :: How To Limit Resources - Mod_perl

Nov 15, 2010

Few months ago I'd got problem with Apache on my server. Some requests required few gigabytes of memory, much more than was avaliable. I've set ulimit -v XXX and this fixed problem for single request.

I still have got problem with multiples requests. I'm using mod perl, which runs few processes for requests, we can assume, that there is one process per request. ulimit cannot handle this, because it can only limit virtual memory per process, not for a group of processes.
