System Requirements: Jolicloud vs Ubuntu 10.04
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 11, 2010
I am using Jolicloud and I get about 6 hours of battery life on my Asus 1005PE. I was wondering if it would be the same or better with Ubuntu 10.04
Thanks very much for the constant support Ubuntu Forums

Xubuntu 12.04 memory requirements?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 2, 2012
I read in wiki (https://wiki.ubuntu.com/PrecisePango...eNotes/Xubuntu) that minimum recommended RAM for the newest Xubuntu was around 512MB, which made me wonder what's been cooking. I've been running 10.04 on an old Celeron with only 384MB RAM, no special desktop effects or other resource hogs, and while not fast by any means, it's still been totally functional. In fact, it uses under 100MB after login, and with OpenOffice (a vital app used daily), not much more than that (usually under 120MB), and nothing in swap.
So, before making that leap into 12.04 (and possibly running into trouble), I'd like to ask 12.04 Xubuntu users whether their systems actually use ~512MB RAM on the desktop (not including other apps started by the user). Has Xubuntu become terribly bloated or have the numbers above been pulled out of a hat by someone with top-of-the-line equipment and several apps running simultaneously (unlike yours truly)? I hope you don't steer me toward Lubuntu or LXDE. I didn't like
Has anyone heard of Zenwalk and Dreamlinux?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 29, 2012
Zenwalk and Dreamlinux are the smallest (I mean low popularity, not the size) distros I ever used.
Now I recall: the first Linux I ever used was ASPLinux.
I used mainstream ones such as Mint, Fedora, Ubuntu family.
What I dislike about Zenwalk is the package manager and updating system.
I used to consider the Dreamlinux icon one of the prettiest default icon themes.
Ok, I got the bubble theme from Zenwalk working in Xubuntu.
I get the themes and wallpapers from live session (without installation) often enough.
8.10 partition size requirements for / /home/ /swap /var /usr going from 8.04 Ubuntu
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 29, 2008
Going to install clean copy of 8.10 on vacant 500GB drive to try it out, while maintaining my old 8.04 for a while (on another drive), which uses separate /home and /swap partitions. Will get rid of old 7.10 partitions on yet another drive. Need to increase size of /home at the same time as I'm now running out of room in an 84GB /home partition. Am thinking I should just create a new /home on the 500GB 8.10 drive and copy the files over from my present /home partition. Wondering if anyone with in-depth partitioning experience could offer suggestions, as I'm wanting to branch out to the next level of partitioning here. I'd like to set up separate /home, /swap, /boot, /, /opt, /var, /usr and also a /backup partition (the last of which would be duplicated afterwards on a completely separate drive for safe redundency - manually not by raid). I've never gone the route of the extra partitions past / and /swap with the exception of /home and /backup and I'm not conversant with the requir
[SOLVED] Error compiling Mesa8.0.4: Package requirements (glproto >= 1.4.14) were not met
location: linuxquestions.com - date: October 11, 2012
I have installed CAELinux 2011 (based on Ubuntu 10.04, Linux 2.6.32-43-generic) onto my Toshiba Satellite L755-S5258 laptop. As far as I can understand, the laptop uses shared memory graphics using Mobile Intel HD Graphics. I have looked into this because I currently can only get a resolution of 1024x768 instead of the 1366x768 I should be getting and thus I want to install the appropriate driver to solve this problem.
This has lead me to try to install the Intel 12.07 graphics package and so far the only way I have found to do this is by getting the various components mentioned at http://intellinuxgraphics.org/2012.07.html and installing them. Thus I have been attempting to install Mesa-8.0.4, and while compiling it the following error eventually appears:
Help required to build ubuntu 12.04 kernel with custom requirements
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: September 17, 2013
I am new to the Linux Kernel and have custom requirements to build the kernel (12.04).
The changes are regarding the New Socket in networking (mainly on socket.h)...like AF_INET, i have to add new socket AF_CUSTOM.
I am able to download the source using "sudo apt-get source linux-image-$(uname -r)", which has downloaded "linux-lts-quantal-3.5.0" on /usr/src dir.
Then i have modified the socket.h file using sudo vim linux-lts-quantal-3.5.0/include/linux/socket.h and i have followed the below link to build the kernel.
With the help of above link, i am able to build the kernel and install the deb packages and also updated the grub using "sudo update-grub" command and rebooted the sysem.
After reboot, i am able to select the new kernel. Till this point i am happy that i didnt face any problem.
Now, when i checked the socket.h file for my changes in /usr/include/sys/socket.h and /usr/include/b
Server hardware requirements?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 26, 2009
I asked my school teacher if we could set up a linux server, to test it out and such. And he asked me about the system requirements for the OS. I tried at the ubuntu homepage, and I google'd a little, but I didnt find anything of use.
Not sure what the server is going to be used for, probably a web server, or storage server.
So, I need to know what you guys would recommend for this machine, we have one server that has 4gb ram, and a intel xeon cpu x2 iirc. Could we use this machine to the server?
Edit: Guessing this is the wrong forum to post it in, could a kind mod move it to the correct forum?

What is the minimum hardware requirement to be a host for virtual clients?
I want to do some 'home brew cloud' for personal education, and using Amazon or other service is problematic due to my slow internet connection so having a 'stone soup cloud' would be nice.
I am trying to determine what hardware I can get by with to make something that works OK, possibly not great.
