1995 Power Macintosh
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 12, 2006
I was able to get a old Power Macintosh from 1995 for free....but....it has Mac OS 8.1 and I can't do much with it. I check the hard drive and found out that max capacity is only 100.3MB! I've used Fedora Core 4, White Box, Vine and SuSE (all of them for i386). I would like to be able to design web pages and do some software development on that old Mac. (it's been sitting on my desk for almots 3 years doing nothing). But I don't know any PPC linux's that would fit into a 100.3MB hard drive. I don't have the money to get a new HD nor do I have the money to throw it out. I was wondering if the earlier versions of vine linux for PPC would work. What are people's opinions on Vine Linux and is it possible to resurrect my old Mac?
Thanks in advance,
LXer: Mac OS X Power Consumption vs. Ubuntu 11.04, Windows 7

Last week we delivered results looking at the power consumption of Ubuntu 11.04 versus Windows 7, which was interesting in its own right, but in this article is a brief look at where Apple's Mac OS X operating system fits in between the power consumption of Ubuntu Linux and Microsoft Windows.
Laptop Power consumption: KDE vs Gnome

A journey on my trail of OS's and desktop environments:
SKIP purple text to get to my point.
Note: if I don't say Gnome Shell, any reference to Gnome is a reference to any Gnome child, Gnome Shell included.
I don't want to start a debate, by any means. I simply want to share my two cents and receive some feedback from the community.
I have been in an operating system struggle for years now. I got Windows 7 soon after I bought my Dell Inspiron 1545 (AMD), and of course, the first thing I did out of the box was to install Ubuntu alongside it (partitioned, not wubi). Ubuntu is such a rich operating system, and I have loved to watch it evolve from synaptic to creating a very full, beautiful software center.
I used windows at college a lot, but over the last 2 & 1/2 years, i have had to reinstall windows about 5 times, including having to replace my hard drive tree times! It's a broken wheel...
However, I have had issues with Ubuntu as well, which has driven me back
LXer: Ubuntu/Xubuntu/Kubuntu/Lubuntu Power Tests
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 3, 2011

With the extensive Linux power consumption tests that I've been carrying out to solve some nasty Linux kernel power regressions and find other areas for optimization, one of the requests that has come in frequently is to compare the power consumption of the KDE, GNOME, Unity, Xfce, and LXDE desktops. After the article earlier this week to look at how the desktop environments / compositing window managers affect OpenGL performance, I carried out a quick desktop power test. In this article are battery power consumption results for Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu, and Lubuntu.
LXer: Ubuntu 8.04 vs. Windows Vista Power Usage
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 25, 2008
Published at LXer:
In Q4'07 we had looked at Ubuntu's power consumption with all of their Linux releases going back to Ubuntu 5.04. While Linux has improved in recent years when it comes to power efficiency and optimizations, more processes running on the desktop had canceled out any real power improvements. Following that article was a look at power consumption between Windows and Linux. We had used an old desktop system in that comparison and Ubuntu 7.10 was consuming the most power while idling but Fedora 8 Test 3 had consumed the least amount of power and had beat out both Windows XP and Vista. While using the desktop, however, both versions of Windows had consumed less power than Fedora and Ubuntu. With Ubuntu 8.04 LTS now available, we have decided to run another simple power comparison. This time we are using a Lenovo ThinkPad notebook and an AMD server as we see whether Ubuntu Hardy Heron or Microsoft Windows Vista consumes less power.
power efficiency 32 bit vs 64 bit
location: linuxquestions.com - date: December 23, 2012
Simple question, but I would like a maybe an example or some kind of thing to base the answer off if possible.
Is there any difference in power efficiency between 32 bit and 64 bit?
Installing Civilization: Call to Power (linux version)
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 7, 2008
I cannot install civilization:call to power. I bought it from tuxgames, but it appears that lokigames no longer has any kind of support available so I don't know how to fix this problem. I can't get the isntaller to work. When I click install I get a popup that says this:
setup/printlibc: 3: function: not found
setup/printarch: 3: function: not found
Does anyone know how to fix this? Or could anyone talk me through just extracting the tarballs directly into a directory via the terminal. (because I can't seem to browse the disc. when I click browse it opens up soundjuicer...)

I downloaded Civilization: Call to Power from www.tuxgames.com. The game downloaded to my Desktop with no problem but I do not know how to open this type of file "civctp-demo.run". My OS is Ubuntu 7.04. It is a demo version of the game, wanted to check it out before buying the full version. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
*ERROR* Power management discrepancy: GEN6RPINTERRUPTLIMITS expected 15000000, wa
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 7, 2013
My Ubuntu 12.04 seems to take a long time to load and I started Investigating it. Initially this(http://askubuntu.com/a/201870/130724) answer helped me a lot.
After further research I found the following error in dmesg output.

Some times more than one similar errors occur and it takes much more time to boot. See below.

'Power manager still running' error on login
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 11, 2010
Since upgrading to 10.04 (from 9.10) 2 days ago, I have been getting an error message whenever I log in.
It tells me that 'Power manager is still running' and gives me options of 'logout anyway' or 'cancel' (I'm writing this from memory, so may have got the wording slightly wrong). Clicking 'logout anyway', then continues with the login process, with no further problems (as an aside, I am running a desktop, so I'm not sure that Power Manager has much to do anyway...)
Anyone got any ideas?
