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.
I just want to upgrade my Slackware 13.1 kernel (220.127.116.11) to the latest stable kernel from kernel.org (18.104.22.168). 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:
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 ).
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 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'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/22.214.171.124-167.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.
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.

But a consequence of that are vary and maybe take some time to get resolved, but the topic of the thread is:I can't see the mount points on Places for all my drives (included HDD, CD/DVD and USB's).

Is there any way to apply dependency (order) to the execution of init.d scripts ? I wrote a script and put it in init.d folder and then executed the relative update-rc.d command, but the problem is that the command fails executing on boot time, but it executes with no problem manually. I found that it requires another service (mysql) which I guess it's not ready in time which the scripts starts.
I love the theme that the Netbook remix 10.04 LTS has, but I jumped the gun installed desktop onto my laptop (not a atom based laptop). It works no problem.Is there anyway I can get Netbook remix theme loaded into 10.04 LTS desktop that is default with netbook 10.04 LTS? Searched the gnome sites for theme, background, art, etc, nothing.
