LXer: NVIDIA Performance: Windows 7 vs. Ubuntu Linux 12.10
location: linuxquestions.com - date: September 15, 2012
Published at LXer:
With a largely shared driver code-base across platforms, the binary graphics drivers offered by AMD and NVIDIA perform at roughly the same speed for OpenGL between Linux and Windows; that's traditionally been the case and what Phoronix benchmarks in prior years have shown for NVIDIA and AMD. However, the OpenGL performance difference between operating systems is beginning to widen due to compositing window managers and other factors now affecting the results to a greater extent. In this article are benchmarks of the proprietary NVIDIA graphics driver from Microsoft Windows 7 and then development snapshots of Ubuntu 12.10 with Unity and KDE desktops.
Linux 12.10 bug
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 20, 2012
When starting up my computer while having an external monitor connected - it reacts like this: http://imgur.com/a/PPOIM
I have a Dell XPS M1530, and installed ubuntu 12.10 yesterday. Now during startup this is happening and I have no Idea why.
During this instable state I can login, but I am logged out just as fast.
If I boot up the pc, and then connect the monitor it works just fine. The monitor is a hp 1902.
Ubuntu Linux 12.10 Message of the Day
location: linuxexchange.com - date: March 27, 2013
I've just made the transition to Ubuntu Linux 12.10 and I want to properly set up my first motd. I've run the following below and noticed that I only have one motd file instead of having a secondary file called motd.tail that most Ubuntu versions seem to have. Should I create backup copy the motd file and then write to that file, or write to the file directly? Also, once I've written to this file do I need to make it executable to display the message?
ls -l motd* // output: motd -> /var/run/motd
App Engine and Eclipse on Ubuntu Linux 12.10
location: linuxexchange.com - date: January 1, 1970
I updated Ubuntu from 12.04 to 12.10.
It upgraded my Eclipse too, from 3.7 to 3.8.
Turns out, Google App Engine doesn't have a plug in for 3.8. Just 3.7 and 4.2.
So I upgraded Eclipse to 4.2.
When I upload my project, it says it can't because of the java-7 flags. I found a post on here that described how I might change the flag, but it wouldn't matter because I'm not a "Trusted Tester" so they wouldn't allow it yet anyways.
I tried to change the Project's build path to include OpenJDK 6 and a compiler level of 1.6
I get this project error "Java compiler level does not match the version of the installed Java project facet."
I've looked it up, and found a message on StackOverflow, but I can't figure out what facets I'm using or if that solution even applies.
Is it possible to use Eclipse 4.2 and the App Engine 1.7.4 to upload a project to App Engine?
How do I get it to use Java6?
ubuntu 12.10 considered very slow vs linux mint?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 5, 2013
I have a 1 month old, brand new laptop (thinkpad). It's basically the "reference" laptop to have for linux, and I installed ubuntu 12.10, super modern hardware.
I found it to be very slow out of the box. Is it the unity interface? Any way we can disable this completely?
Running calibre, eclipse, and chrome, and thunderbird would result in big time harddrive "thrashing" where there's constant activity.
I was thinking about buying an SSD simply b/c things were so slow.
On a whim I installed linux mint 14 (cinnamon desktop). I am not exaggerating when I say that it is literally 5 times as fast in every area.
I can run the aforementioned apps simultaneously without any problems. It's been a revelation.
My SSD purchase is on the back burner now.
I'm sure that the Unity interface has been a complaint and there's always going to be people who dislike change. Or maybe it's most people who dislike change.
But I found it quite hard as a newbie to know what is
Ubuntu/Lubuntu 12.10 or Linux Mint 14 XFCE for an older computer?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 1, 1970
This is kind of a fun question for you guys, I have a old/decent computer I found, it's an HP Workstation xw4200 or something. It has a Pentium 4 3.5ghz, 4GB of memory ( upgraded) and the hard drives surprisingly use SATA, I also put in a Geforce GT 220. This computer is for my mom who isn't too great with computers so remember that I would like a distro that is simple to use.
It has win7 right now and it's pretty damn fast so I need a Linux distro that's probably faster than how it's operating now to convince my mother (as she'a always used Windows).
Ubuntu is probably the most user friendly distro out there as well that it is fast and stable so I would like to put Ubuntu on it, however since the PC is a bit old I would like to squeeze in as much performance as I can and I was thinking of Linux Mint 14 with XFCE. Which do you think is better? OH ALSO, or would Lubuntu also be a good or better choice?
LXer: Ubuntu 12.10: 32bit vs. 64bit Linux Performance
location: linuxquestions.com - date: October 14, 2012
Published at LXer:
In past years on Phoronix there has been no shortage of 32-bit vs. 64-bit Linux benchmarks. Assuming you don't have a limited amount of RAM and under memory pressure, 64-bit distributions tend to be much faster than the 32-bit versions. However, some Linux users still often wonder whether they should use the 32-bit or 64-bit version of their distribution even when on 64-bit hardware. So with that said, here's some more 32-bit vs. 64-bit benchmarks of Ubuntu 12.10 with the Linux 3.5 kernel.
Upgrade from 32 bit Linux Mint 10 to 64 bit Kubuntu 12
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 4, 2012
My upgrade from 32 bit Linux Mint 10 to 64 bit Kubuntu 12.04 has caused me problems with a Qt4 program that I created myself (a simple checkbook reconciler).
I am getting the following error when I do a "qmake CkRcn":
qmake: error while loading shared libraries: libstdc++.so.5: wrong ELF class: ELFCLASS64
Will I have to convert a c++ program to python?
Or is there another solution?
Thank you, Rick

[Ask] Dualboot Ubuntu 12.10 with Linux Mint 13
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 28, 2012
I know this question has been asked so many times, but I don't know what should I do in my case with those tutorials available everywhere. This is how my current situation looks like:
Right now I'm using Linux Mint 13 Xfce installed with:
1. 500MB of /boot
2. 2GB of swap
3. 15GB of /
4. The rest of my space is /home with no space left in my hard drive
And I just got a Ubuntu 12.10 live CD from my friend, and I intended to install it alongside my Linux Mint. And I want to select something else in the installation process.
The question is:
1. I want to use the same /home partition for Ubuntu and Linux Mint with same user but different directory because I don't want my configuration files conflict with each other. For example my username is Budiman and I want a directory named /home/budiman-Ubuntu for Ubuntu and /home/budiman-LinuxMint for Linux Mint. How can I do that?
2. I read it somewhere said that I can share /boot and swap with multiple Distro, is it true?
3. How can I m
