Generating a backtrace for dummies (me).
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 16, 2007
Hello I figure this is the best forum for this.
I was wondering if someone could provide some insight into generating a decent backtrace for a bug report. Not something I usually have to do.
One of my favourite programs, rtorrent, dies on opening a .torrent file. So I:
1) recompile the program, enabling debug symbols
2) install gdb
3) "gdb rtorrent"
4) gdb> "run"
Then I make it die by opening a .torrent.
I then type "backtrace"
to which gdb retorts: "No stack".
Have I missed something? I figure it is something simple I forgot to do.
Also if you have any other advice on what to include (and maybe how to get it) in "the perfect bug report" please chip in.
Help me choose a dual (android/ubuntu) bootable tablet
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 13, 2011
I've finally decided to give up my 2007-era laptop and buy one of those shiny new tablet computers that are all the rage.
There are a few things that are critical for me:
- Ability to run Android and Ubuntu! Either dual-boot or Android from within Ubuntu. I won't pay money for anything where I can't have complete root.
- 1GB RAM or more
- Ports, ports, ports: USB port, SD port, headphone port
- Wifi and bluetooth
- Real 5 hours battery runtime
- Bright screen and durable, finger friendly glass (gorillaglass?)
- Well-built, durable and reliable
There are a few other things that are on my wishlist:
- Upgradeable RAM - 2 years from now, when 8GB of RAM costs $50, I'd like to upgrade.
- Full-size USB port rather than mini/micro USB
- Charges from USB - I dont want to carry a charger thats the same size as the tablet!
- Full size SD card slot - So that I can use the cards that I already have
I realize that I'm asking a lot, but I'm willing to pay. I prefer to stay under $500, but $1000 i
Give me one reason why Mac OS X is better than Ubuntu...
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: September 23, 2012
I recently managed to get Mac OS X 10.8 running in Virtualbox. After playing around with it and trying to work in it I came to the conclusion that it sucks.
1. Inconsistent look of the apps. One has old yellow paper, the other leather, some has shiny metal finishes. All to gimmicky to my taste.
2. The default font is not even close to the quality of the Ubuntu font set.
3. Much to vendor specific and locked down to be any fun.
4. Cumbersome interface after having being spoilt with unity.
5. The best app I found installed by default was vim, getting gvim setup on Mac OS X was way slower then just doing a sudo apt-get install vim-gnome
I own an iPhone 4S and an iPad 2, so I was contemplating getting a macbook or one of those mini macs. However after this experience I will take the same amount of cash I needed to get one of those and get myself the very best laptop that amount of cash can get, and install Ubuntu 12.04.1 immediately.
But maybe I am missin
[SOLVED] Slackware And Arch, Whitch One For Me
location: linuxquestions.com - date: February 5, 2012
I have always seen slackware as old and basically a Linux-From-Scratch system prebuilt. Arch always looked like the same thing but with a package management system and a um well... Slackware seems less bloted (we are compareing two VERY light distros here) than arch...
Well could anyone help me see if it meets the fallowing requirements before I partition an image file:
Has yacc, On Debian based distros it comes with the bison package
Has GCC, I dought any of these don't support it
Supports elf format executables
Can install in 10GB of space
Can run with 512-1024M of RAM
Will both of these do that?
And whitch one would be better for unix education?
Whitch one is closer to a plain kernel with coreutils and bash?

Is Ubuntu right for me, or should I go FreeNAS?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 24, 2010
Greetings...I'm a newbie here, thought this would be the best place to start. I want to build a server that will act mainly as a NAS, but will provide additional functionality, and despite FreeNAS appearing to be very easy to set up and maintain, I don't know if it can do more than just the basic stuff, so I started to consider Ubuntu, and here I am.
The server hardware ain't too bad (Athlon 2400+ I believe, 512MB RAM, Adaptec 2610SA hardware RAID card for a RAID-5). I want to install it to a CF card on an IDE adapter (which is in transit from Hong Kong). My CF card is 256MB...I think I have a 512MB somewhere, but I have a feeling if I go with Ubuntu, I will need more space.
Here's a list of my must haves (=), definitely would like (+), and maybe would like (-). Would you guys recommend I go Ubuntu or FreeNAS based on these requirements? I'm very computer literate but I haven't messed with Linux in years (last time I sort of played around was when Gentoo was king; the last time befor
Linux advices for dummies
location: linux.com - date: December 23, 2012
I have never touched linux. I heard that it can be done everything on a linux machine so I am thinking about trying it out. My goal is to someday create my own OS light, fast, fully compatible and customized. I would apreciate any kind of advices such as first steps, linux distribution, PC specs... Thank you.
Linux for me
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 16, 2013
I have been using Ubuntu for many years now, and it seems that I have spent most of my time fixing things (which I like to do, however, I need to move on to actually using it). I love having it and like it way better than windows but am tired of both my Ubuntu machines crashing every few hours, while my windows and OS X hosts don't have that problem. I recently installed Fedora as a VM on Windows 8 and it works without issue. I am thinking about to swtiching my server and hosts to Fedora 19 on VMs out of exacerbation due to the unresolved crashes. What I would like to know from experienced users is if I would probably have the same problem with Fedora. If so, I will stick with Ubuntu or try another flavor.
Does anyone have some experience with both Ubuntu (xfce especially) and Fedora (xfce)? I am not interested in windows and mac, so please don't point me to these OSs.

SO my Dell XPS M1730 died last weekend and I am left with no computer... Looking for a rather quick replacement, I have purchased a toshiba L755D-04V with possibility to return it within 2 weeks for full refund if Im not satisfied with it.
Basically, the machine will be used (except to replace my older laptop) to:
Play 1080p movies
Run picture/image, animation and video programs such as Inkscape, Gimp, Blender, Cinerella, Avidemux, etc
Run openoffice & libreoffice
Run math software such as GNU Octave & R (statistics)
COmpile my own packages (I install everything from source)
Play MP3 & browse the web.
The machine will run Slackware64.
No gaming at all (ok maybe Mahjong.. but I want something decently fast and responsive, especially when I have 10+ Firefox tabs or Im playing a 1080p movie & do something else at the same time...
This machine has the following hardware specs:
Processor Type AMD Sabine Quad-Core Mobile A8-3520M
Processor Cores 4
smtp issues in evolution with smtp.mail.me.com at iCloud
- date: May 28, 2012
I have Ubuntu 12.04 and am running evolution 3.2.3.
Virgin email have decided to close non subscriber accounts so I am trying to set up my [email protected]
account in evolution to be my new default account.
I have searched the web for information and tried all that I can but still cannot get smtp to work. I have connected to the imap server to retrieve emails but I cannot get a connection to the smtp server.
I have tried SSL but it will not connect to the server to tell me what type of authentication to use.
When I use TLS on port 587 as recommended, it connnects to the server for the authentication type (plain or login) but no matter which I use, it does not allow me to send.
Is anyone else using me.com on their evolution? If so can anyone point me to a soluton?
