Help to Ubuntu 8.10.


After using Debian for a while, I now switched back to Ubuntu, because there are some things about Debian, I do not like.

But this thread is about Powernowd and update of Java 6 Update 10

I have finally been Powernowd to select "Performance" at boot. But Ubuntu will not close properly if Powernowd not set to "Ondemand". How do I get Ubuntu to close properly, without having to choose Ondemand every time?

I got Powernowd to choose Performance at boot by editing the "powernowd" in "etc/init.d". If it can help...

Now to Java. I installed "Ubuntu restricted extras" through the Add/Remove. Flash version is up to date, but Java 6 Update 10, as installed, is outdated.

I would therefore like to have it updated to Update 12, but it can be done via the Terminal, and how?

I would stick with the version in the repos (see link)

But if not you should be able to download java from Sun's website.

As for cpu frequency scaling here is another thread you should find more helpful.
