Speed up your Ubuntu 12.04 with preload application

Posted 06-07-2012 at 01:20 PM by allu john sudhakar

what is preload application:- Preload is nice little application that could make your linux system a lot faster. Preload is an adaptive readahead daemon. It monitors applications that users run, and by analyzing this data, predicts what applications users might run, and fetches those binaries and their dependencies into memory for faster startup times.

Lubuntu 12.04

Posted 06-05-2012 at 10:19 AM by markyd

In my never ending quest for the distro that does everything, is easy to use and uses zero resources (going to be a long quest) one distro always comes back time and time again, Lubuntu.

Been giving Lubuntu 12.04 a spin on my media PC (ASUS AT3IONT based) and a Dell D600 both installed ok, main gripe was the need to add "smbfs" so I could access my music and movies on my XP based media server ... and the reason for that is the need to mount these drives in /etc/fstab as...

QT giac (qtgiac) and new lib lq/mc2 v. 3.03

Posted 06-05-2012 at 07:58 AM by rainbowsally

[If you have had trouble compiling qtgiac, this might help.]

http://rainbowsally.org/rainbowsally...giac-rs.tar.gz (about 2 megs)

This qtgiac build currently works with the following version of libLQ/mc2 (and also with later builds of the mc2 v. 2x). If you need this to work for sure AND you want to mess with the makefiles, get this version of the libLQ/mc2 as well to make the job a little easier.

The licence is GPL, although there are some optional proprietary extensions, which include USB drivers and RDP support. On newer processors (with AMD-V or VT-x processor), there are other libre alternatives such as KVM.

To install VirtualBox is just a matter of installing the package:
Code:
apt-get install virtualbox-ose
Because the software is...

Slackware 13.37 and Openembedded

Posted 06-04-2012 at 01:21 AM by D1ver
Updated 06-06-2012 at 07:48 PM by D1ver

Openembedded is a handy way to crosscompile software for embedded devices. After spending most of the day struggling to get the initial build process to complete on Slackware I figured I'd make a post here in the hopes of saving someone some time in the future.

Required Software:
OE lists the required software at http://www.openembedded.org/wiki/Required_software
I found the following packages at slackbuilds.org
- help2man
- chrpath
