Mint 16 Best 64 bit KDE Desktop for G945/i915

Posted 02-28-2014 at 09:11 AM by rainbowsally
Updated Yesterday at 11:33 AM by rainbowsally (abandon ship!)

Update: I'm reverting to a 32-bit system. I may install some 64-bit libs but trying to get everything working that I need in a 64-bit system is not worth the time.

I'll leave this post in case it's of any help to anyone, but it turns out that THE solution to the graphics speed provblem here may have only worked by chance. Meanwhile, my 64 bit system still has all the graphical effects working, but everything else slowed down and several apps ported from non-mint distros no longer...

new mc2 version

Posted 09-27-2013 at 04:32 PM by rainbowsally

mc2 (makefile creator 2) was created and developed right here at linux questions. It is a terminal app with some gui features and generates makefiles like automake does, but much more simply, using your own directory structure to organize builds -- even very large projects -- super-easy.

new runc version

Posted 09-27-2013 at 03:53 PM by rainbowsally

Here's where runc can be d/loaded.
Run C/C++ Code As Script
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...-script-35691/

Here's another usage example for runc.

When you want to pack up a bunch of folders by name that live in a windows partition, there's a great likelihoold that spaces in the paths could cause a normal shell program to mis-parse the file names.

Runc uses C/C++ and the built-in slist functions...

Runcible. Runc-able. Same thing... ;-)

As we feared, runc is getting out of control.. Atomic ants, vivisection, computer mad science... you just never know what might happen.

But...

A C/C++ SCRIPT to change symlinks to url links.

Posted 09-08-2013 at 02:05 PM by rainbowsally
Updated 09-08-2013 at 02:28 PM by rainbowsally

Today's feature:
  • A C/C++ utility (script if you have runc-rs) to change symlinks to url files.

[Requires runc-rs or at least librunc.a from runc-rs.
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...int-kde-35688/
Doesn't require mint to work, nor even a deb derivative.]

This experiment today is significantly less ambitious than the deb repository builder thingy in the previous blog entry and is again a nice intro to C/C++...
